Don Lemon to Alleged Cosby Victim

You Should Have Been Craftier

In Oral Sex Dept.

11/19/2014 5:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

111914_joan_tarshis_launch_v2CNN's Don Lemon thinks one of Bill Cosby's alleged victims could have thwarted any demand for oral sex by just biting down hard ... yes, it's breathtaking.

Joan Tarshis claims Cosby sexually assaulted her twice in 1969, but she scared him from having intercourse by telling him she had an infection. But she says he then forced her to perform oral sex.

So Lemon looks like the cat who ate the canary as he schools Tarshis on how she could have stopped Cosby in his tracks.  

Tarshis looked puzzled as Lemon said, "You know, there are ways not to perform oral sex if you didn't want to do it."

The suggestion she wanted to do it is just appalling, particularly since Tarshis claims she was stoned.

Lemon's been watching too many "Lifetime" movies.

Charles Manson's Wedding

He Can Make Out

And Dine from Vending Machines

11/19/2014 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118-manson-wedding-fa-tmz-02Charles Manson will be allowed to make out with his bride, but he will never get to second base ... according to prison honchos.

Officials from the California Dept. of Corrections tell TMZ ... Manson's upcoming prison wedding next month at Corcoran State Prison will be G-rated and Spartan. There's no time limit on the first kiss but prison officials will cut it off before it becomes foreplay.  

We're told Manson will not be restrained during the ceremony but he won't be allowed physical contact with 26-year-old Afton Elaine Burton other than locking lips and holding hands during the ceremony.   FYI ... the officials wouldn't say if tongue was fair game. 

The murderer can't wear a tux -- he'll get hitched in Corcoran couture, but the bride can wear what she wants. 

As we reported, the bride and groom can invite up to 10 guests who are not inmates, but they won't be feasting on salmon. The meal will be catered by the company that provides Cup-O-Noodles with the push of a button. The good news ... there are pastries in the vending machines.

And, as we told you, Manson will not get conjugal visits.

This is the wedding where if the groom breaks a glass, he'll go into solitary.

Wale

Seinfeld's My Boy, But ...

He Don't Know Crap About Rap

11/19/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

111914_wale_launchJerry Seinfeld can team up with Wale to make hysterical skits -- but the rapper tells us there is a limit to Seinfeld's talent in the entertainment biz.

If you haven't seen 'em ... Wale and Seinfeld are like a new odd couple in a series of online vignettes -- and our guy asked Wale about the one where Jerry tells him how to rip music critics who left him off a "best of" list.

Wale gives JS major props for the comedy -- but you gotta see how his tone changes when we ask if Jerry's gonna help him record new music. Wale doesn't want to say it, but he's saying it: Stay in your lane, Seinfeld! 

Something tells us Seinfeld (and the world) will be fine if Jerry doesn't rap.

Tyga

Boycotts Club for

Banning Underage GF Kylie

11/19/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1118_tyga_kylie_jenner_tmz-2Tyga pulled a no-show for a club appearance when the place shot down his demands to get his underage GF Kylie Jenner into the West Hollywood hot spot.

Sources at Greystone Manor tell TMZ ... Tyga begged and pleaded with promoters to get 17-year-old Kylie admitted -- calling several times throughout the day. We're told he even pushed his arrival time to 1:30 AM while trying to negotiate Kylie's entry.

When the club wouldn't budge -- y'know, because of the law and stuff -- he bailed. 

We're told Tyga pulling out of the event pissed off a liquor sponsor in a big way. The club is trying to reschedule, but since the 21-and-over rule isn't changing ... seems pretty hopeless. 

They may wanna call him back ... in four years.

Russell Armstrong's Father

Gets Death Pics

To Satisfy Foul Play Suspicions

11/19/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Russell Armstrong Autopsy PhotosThe father of the late "Real Housewives" star Russell Armstrong will finally get photographic evidence to answer the question he's been asking for 3 years ... "Was my son murdered?"

The L.A. County Coroner has agreed to turn over pics, negatives, videos and X-rays to Louie Armstrong and his lawyers ... provided they keep the evidence under wraps.

The elder Armstrong has never believed his son took his own life. Russell was in financial straits -- owing a ton of money to business associates -- so when Armstrong was found hanging from an electrical cord Aug. 15, 2011, his dad immediately suspected foul play.

The Coroner ruled the death a suicide.

Kim K vs. Jeff Beacher

Big Ass vs. Big Ol' Ass

Who Would You Rather?

Jeff Beacher Kim Kardashian Ass PhotoThere've been lots of Photoshopped iterations of Kim Kardashian's Paper Magazine shoot -- but only one man has dared to drop trou and put his real butt on blast.

Showman Jeff Beacher adorned himself in a wig, pearls and black lacy gloves in his homage to KK. The owner of the MGM Grand party palace Beacher's Madhouse showed no shame and no mercy.

Beacher has trolled the likeness of stars like David Beckham, Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears -- but this takes his art form to a whole new level.

The question is ...

EXCLUSIVE



A viral video of a baby drumming to a Pantera song rocks so hard ... the band's real drummer Vinnie Paul is sending the tot a mini-metalhead starter kit.

Vinnie tells TMZ ... he was so blown away by the clip of 8-month-old Wyatt faux-jamming (there's an adult moving his arms) to the Pantera classic "5 Minutes Alone" -- he reached out personally to the kid's parents in Kentucky.

Vinnie put together a $400 ddrum D1 starter kit for Wyatt -- 2 cymbals, snare drum, bass drum, 3 tom toms and sticks -- which he's shipping this week with a personal message.

"Walk" on, little Wyatt!

Kylie Jenner

Ticketed for Driving While Black

11/18/2014 5:32 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118_kylie_jenner_pulled_over_x17Kylie Jenner is getting to know the entire LAPD police force one by one ... because another cop just pulled her over and wrote her up.

The 17-year-old was driving her Range Rover in the San Fernando Valley when the patrol officer lit her up because her tail lights were not up to code. The whip was tricked out and the black covers over the red tail lights didn't cut it.

The non-moving violation is the latest in a string of vehicular hijinks ... she's been in 2 accidents, ticketed 3 times and sued once.

At least she's not dating a 24-year-old. Oh, wait ...
