Bruce Vilanch

Only 2 Black People Appear 'Into the Woods'

12/26/2014 7:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122614_bruce_vilanch_launchBruce Vilanch has a fun game for moviegoers going to see "Into the Woods" this holiday weekend ... it's called find the black people -- and apparently, it ain't easy. 

Vilanch was heading out of Arclight in Hollywood and pointed out ... the movie is ethnically challenged.

Bruce muses ... you'd think no black people get lost in the woods -- except two women who appear in the background.

Guess that means not many people in the movie die.

WWE Star Sheamus

Goes Back In Time ...

Buys a DeLorean

12/26/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

WWE Sheamus DeLorean

WWE superstar Sheamus may not be a champ anymore, but he's still living like one -- dropping a bundle on the crown jewel for all exotic car lovers ... who also happen to love "Back to the Future."

Our sources tell us the Celtic Warrior went searching for a DeLorean last weekend -- and hit up Just Toys Classic Cars in Orlando for a test drive. He clearly fell in love with it on the spot ... 'cause he scooped it up for around $55K. 

Unclear if Seamus is a "Future" fanatic ... but he can forget about a road trip to 1955. The seller tells us the car -- which is more than 30-years-old -- has a "tough time getting to 88 miles per hour." 

Buyer beware! 

Fun fact: In "Back to the Future III" ... Marty Mcfly's great-great-grandpa's name is ... Seamus!

Karrueche and Chris Brown

He Loves Me Not,

He Loves Me!

1225-karrueche-tran-rings-christmas-INSTAGRAM-01
Chris Brown
has gone from venomously putting Karrueche Tran on blast ... to giving her what looks like a small diamond mine.

Karrueche coyly posted the pic of her latest acquisitions ... courtesy of CB. 

She's not saying if either is an engagement ring, but it's doubtful given that it's on the wrong hand.

It's certainly a major about face ... we spotted them the other night leaving Playhouse nightclub in Hollywood, the first time they've been publicly seen since their nuclear breakup.

Looks like he also gave her a pooch.

This one does answer to "bitch."

Amanda Bynes

Stable, Lucid and Off Meds

12/25/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes Mental Health
Amanda Bynes is OUT of her manic state ... acting completely "normal" and her family thinks it's nothing short of "mind blowing."

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda is off all meds, including Adderall, which caused her to get a DUI

When you speak with Amanda there is no way you would know she's been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolarity. She is completely lucid. 

We're told things have stabilized so much, her parents have given her limited access again to bank accounts. She spends her time reading, doing yoga, meditation and pilates ... all stress reducers which doctors say are important for these mental disorders.

We're also told Amanda's recent trip to USC -- where she'd like to enroll as a psych major -- was all planned by her.

Here's the rub. Doctors have told Amanda's family, people with such mental illnesses sometimes rebound and they can be ok for months, only to relapse again.

The family believes during these stable periods, the best thing is to give Amanda enough freedom to enjoy it.

Kris Jenner XMAS Bash

Kids and Mom in Furious

'I'm The Hottest' Contest

1225-kris-jenner-christmas-party-INSTAGRAM-01
Kris Jenner
had her first XMAS bash as a single woman ... lots of friends but notable absences. 

There are reports Kim and Kanye were no shows, but take a look at the 2 pics of Kim and Kanye separately in what looks like the photo booth inside the party. 

Khloe shook her ass, Kendall sexed it up, and we'd say Kylie did the same but she's 17.

Bruce was a no show ... ditto Rob, Brody and Brandon

The bash was thrown at Kris' Calabasas mansion, where she had a giant tent constructed and laced with XMAS lights.

Is Kris Jenner the happiest person you've ever seen who went through a divorce?

Mally Mall

Nick Cannon Praises

Trashes Mariah in New Album

12/25/2014 8:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

122514_mally_mall_launch_v4
Mally Mall dropped one on us at LAX Wednesday ... saying he's doing an album with Nick Cannon next year and there are references to Mariah Carey ... some of which are NOT flattering. 

The mega hip-hop producer first made it sound like Nick played nice in describing his relationship, but then he half took it back and said Nick's comments will be "controversial." 

From all we've heard, Nick's trying to put a good face on his current relationship with Mariah, making it appear they're getting along much better as friends than as husband and wife.

Looks like that status could change.

Casey Kasem

Eternally Lonely

12/25/2014 7:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1225-casey-kasem-grave-tmz-02
The nuclear family war surrounding Casey Kasem's death was punctuated by one of the saddest photos we've seen in a long time ... a lone, dark grave in a far away land.

As we reported, the famed DJ was finally buried last week in an Oslo, Norway cemetery ... 6 months after he died.

Casey's wife Jean and his kids have been feuding over everything, including an autopsy and burial. The kids believe Jean moved the body to Norway to let it sit so it would decompose and frustrate cops in their elder abuse investigation.

Casey's grave is buried in snow in the dark, surrounded by other graves with lit candles celebrating XMAS and memories.

RIP Casey.

Wrestling superstar Kevin Nash has been suspended by the WWE in the wake of his violent, bloody arrest in Florida ... TMZ has learned. 

We broke the story ... 6'10" Nash was popped after allegedly choke slamming his 6'5" son Tristen during a domestic dispute.

Lil Wayne

Warns Birdman ...

My Next Rant's Gonna Be in Court!

EXCLUSIVE

Birdman Lil Wayne Feud
Lil Wayne
 is ready to take his feud with Birdman to the next level ... threatening to drag him and Cash Money into court if they don't drop his album NOW. 

Sources very close to the feud tell TMZ ... Wayne has issued a simple ultimatum, in writing, no less -- release "Tha Carter V" pronto ... or he will sue to leave Cash Money altogether. 

We're told Wayne is standing firm in his belief the album is ready to go -- but Birdman still says there's a lot of behind-the-scenes work left to be done. 

Wayne and Birdman still aren't speaking to each other. We're told Wayne is only focused on the album. When and if that gets done, he'll worry about fixing the friendship ... if that's even possible now.

'Love and Hip Hop: New York' Star

Brutal Attacker

Getting Off Easy

12/25/2014 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Tahira Jose Attacker"Love & Hip Hop: New York" star Tahiry Jose's is still recovering from a violent attack during a fall fashion show ... but we found out her attacker got off really light.

The guy -- Charles Suggs -- pled guilty to assault this week for his brutal attack that left the model in a neck brace and covered with cuts and bruises.

Suggs copped a plea and got off with no jail time. He has to complete an anger management program and he has to stay clear of Jose for 5 years ... or else.

Jose was backstage at the Toure Designs show in September when Suggs started arguing with her. He snapped, charged her and began throwing punches, dragged her down and kept wailing on her until the crew broke it up.

Jose is still in physical therapy.
