Verne Troyer

One Helluva Butterball

11/25/2014 11:52 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1125-verne-troyer-turkey-sbs-wenn-01Thanksgiving shopping can be difficult when the food you're shopping for weighs almost as much as you do ... a lesson Verne Troyer learned the hard way.

Despite having his trusty scooter to aid him, the "Austin Powers" star struggled to wrangle his bird, eventually resorting to just dragging his dinner-to-be across the sidewalk. 

Who wants seconds?

Ariana Grande to Bette Midler

You're the Pot

2:27 P.M. PST --
Ariana just posted on Twitter, "Bette was always a feminist who stood for women being able to do whatever the F they wanted without judgement! not sure where that Bette went but I want that sexy mermaid back!!! always a fan no matter what my love"

Ariana Grande
is both hurt and more than a little indignant that Bette Midler called her a whore in a recent interview, telling friends she embraces sexuality on stage -- JUST LIKE BETTE DID.

Midler pissed off Grande with her comment, "It's always surprising to see someone like Ariana Grande with that silly high voice, a very wholesome voice, slithering on a couch," adding, "You don't have to make a whore out of yourself to get ahead."

People close to Ariana tell us, the singer is "shocked" Midler called her out for 2 reasons ... 1) Ariana is a huge Bette Midler fan, and 2) Bette did exactly the same thing Ariana does.

Truth be told ... when Bette Midler hit big in the '70s ... she was overtly sexual and raunchy on stage.

Lady Gaga Inflatable DressLady Gaga blew up in Paris Monday night.

Gaga finished up the last show of her world tour, then headed out to VIP in the City of Light, and on her way in she pulled the ripcord on whatever that is she's wearing ... and it blossomed into something James Bond's Octopussy would be proud to wear.

So how many people got poked in the eye?

Prince Harry Smoking HookahIf you're the Royal Family, these photos can be viewed two ways ...

Glass half empty: Prince Harry is partying his face off in Abu Dhabi, spotted by Clickstarpics last week on a yacht smoking a hookah.

Glass half full: He kept his clothes on.

Harry has been having himself a good time the last few days -- he's in town for the Grand Prix -- and even snapped a selfie with Tyrese, who posted the photo and wrote, "Prince Harry.... #AbuDhabiNights Oh what a night!!!!!! He asked me for a selfie with me on HIS PHONE!!!!!!"

"Fast & Furious 8" perhaps?

Macklemore

On Front Line of Ferguson Protest

'It's About Mike Brown'

11/25/2014 7:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112514_macklemore_launchRapper Macklemore was one of thousands of people who protested in the streets Monday night following the decision in Ferguson, MO not to file charges against the cop who shot and killed Michael Brown

The Seattle native was seen marching in his hometown's protest -- which eventually turned violent -- with his hands in the air, joining the chant, "Don't shoot! Hands up!"

Macklemore tried to blend in, but was spotted by a KING 5 photog. When asked about his reasons for being there ... he put the spotlight on Brown.

Unclear if he was still marching when protesters clashed with police.

Don Lemon

Protests in Ferguson

'Obviously' Protesters Smell Like Weed

11/25/2014 8:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112514_don_lemon_launchDon Lemon had another "open mouth, insert foot" moment on CNN ... this time using the word "obviously" to describe the smell of marijuana in the air during the protests in Ferguson.

Lemon was on the scene Monday night as residents took to the streets to protest the decision not to indict the police officer who shot and killed Michael Brown

It kinda turned into quien es mas macho between Lemon and Chris Cuomo. Lemon had gas mask in hand and Chris went commando. 

At one point as gas moved in Don's direction he put the mask on but for some reason took it off, saying he needed water and started hacking uncontrollably.

Sad part for Don and Chris though -- Sara Sidner outmanned both of 'em by taking a rock to the dome ... and not missing a beat.

breaking news

1125_shia_in_court_Pool-Photo-New-York-PostShia LaBeouf showed up in a NYC court Tuesday AM to show a judge he is successfully rehabbing himself after getting arrested for disorderly conduct.

Shia brought paper proof he's on track to complete his 6 months of outpatient alcohol rehab ... this after getting arrested for drunkenly disrupting a performance of "Cabaret" last June at Studio 54 in NYC, then spitting at cops and screaming, "Do you know who the f*** I am?"

The judge gave Shia a thumbs-up and then said he wanted to see him in March when he completed the rehab classes.

Shia has been spending lots of time working out for his new movie "Man Down."

Man up.

Bill Cosby

Spelman College -- We Still Have Your Back

11/25/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Bill Cosby Spelman College
Bill Cosby
may have lost some concert dates here and there, but he's not losing the support of Spelman College ... the institution he has richly funded.

An official from Spelman -- which received a $20 million gift from Cosby and his wife Camille -- tells TMZ they have not had a single conversation to change anything regarding Cosby's relationship with the college in the wake of the torrent of sexual assault allegations.

The school dedicated a 69,000 square foot facility to the Cosbys -- the Camille Olivia Hanks Cosby, EdD Academic Center.

The school, which also established the William and Camille Cosby Endowed Professorship Program, notes the Cosby gift was made more than 25 years ago and the relationship is cemented.

Cosby famously gave the commencement address at Spelman in 2006.

Tom Bergeron

Cracks Erin Andrews

Stalking Joke

11/25/2014 6:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

112514_tom_dwts_launchTom Bergeron hit a little too close to home Monday night on "Dancing With the Stars" ... when he made a stalking joke about Erin Andrews ... who very famously dealt with a stalker of her own.

Andrews was debriefing Alfonso Ribeiro when she began gushing over Will Smith ... who went on a social media campaign supporting his former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" co-star. 

After Andrews repeatedly invited Will to show up to a taping, Bergeron followed it up by saying Will could do worse than having Erin as a stalker ... insinuating it's ok for hot chicks to stalk guys.

You'll recall ... Erin dealt with a stalker/Peeping Tom who secretly filmed her inside a hotel room and posted a video of her naked online. The creepy peeper was sentenced to 30 months.

Kirk Cameron

'God Hates F*gs' Vid Is a Smear Campaign ...

I Love Everyone

11/24/2014 5:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

112414_kirk_cameron_launch_v5Kirk Cameron says a video of him blurting out, "God hates f*gs" ... is old news -- from 15-20 years ago -- and is merely being reposted by detractors, angry at the success of his latest Christian film.

The clip shows a conversation between Cameron and Ray Comfort -- his partner in a Christian outreach website -- where Kirk says, "God hates f*gs, and you're going to Hell."

It's obvious the video is edited -- and a rep for Cameron tells us the statement is blatantly "taken out of context." He says Cameron's latest film, "Saving Christmas" is doing very well ... and claims angry Atheists cut up the vid and posted it in an attempt "to defame him."

The rep adds Kirk loves all people.

Miley Cyrus Can Party with My Fam

EXCLUSIVE

112514_rfk_jr_launch_v2Get ready for inflatable penises and people in teddy bear suits all over Hyannis Port (again?) ... because Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says Miley Cyrus is welcome at the Kennedy Compound.

Since Miley started dating Patrick Schwarzenegger, we've wondered how Miley and her antics would fit in with the buttoned-up Kennedy clan.

Sounds like RFK Jr. and his wife Cheryl Hines had a summit about this very topic -- check out his endorsement for Cyrus. Of course, the real question might be ... can they keep up with Miley?

You've been warned, H.P.

Michael Lohan

Marries Baby Mama

Lindsay Left In The Dark

EXCLUSIVE

1124-michael-lohan-married-TMZ-01Michael Lohan has finally made an honest woman out of GF Kate Major ... but no one alerted his kids.

Lindsay Lohan's old man got hitched Oct. 30th in a private ceremony at Hillsboro Beach in Florida. It was so private neither Lindsay nor Mike Jr. were invited ... or even told.

Here's the thing. When Lindsay finally did find out ... she didn't care.

We're told Michael's motivation was his soon-to-be-born child. This is #2 for Michael and Kate.   

They've had a rough ride with multiple mutual arrests. Hopefully "till death do us part" comes naturally.
