Ray Rice & Janay

We're Praying for the Jerks

Mocking Us for Halloween

EXCLUSIVE

1027-janay-ray-rice-getty2-1

Ray Rice
and his wife Janay are fully aware of the Ray Rice costumes that have been surfacing this Halloween -- and they're telling friends they're simply praying for the people mocking them.

You've seen the pics -- people dressed up as Ray dragging around an inflatable Janay in an effort to lampoon the infamous elevator attack.

We've spoken with friends and family members close to Ray and Janay who tell us ... the couple is dealing with the unwanted attention by turning to religion.

One source tells us Ray and Janay have said they are "praying for those people."

As we previously reported, Ray and Janay have been extremely involved with their church since the incident ... and were both baptized in March when they decided to become born again Christians.

We're also told Ray and Janay are still committed to the marriage -- and have vowed to maintain their family and rebuild their lives together.

1028-kevin-smith-facebookGo ahead. Keep rubbing your eyes ... that is actually "Clerks" director Kevin Smith after shaving off his trademark beard.

Smith unveiled the bald faced pic Monday ... writing on Facebook, "Look at this goofy spaz. This is me, beardless, for the #YogaHosers green screen shoot. It's a Face-Brazilian!"

That's a ton of wax.

'Orange Is the New Black'

Vee Reports

For Season 3 Duty

10/28/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Vee Orange Is The New Black Season 3
***SPOILER ALERT*** ***SPOILER ALERT*** ***SPOILER ALERT*** ***SPOILER ALERT***

Sorry, Red ... Vee -- Litchfield Federal Prison's public enemy #1 -- will be back on the show for Season 3 ... despite being left for dead in last season's finale of "Orange Is the New Black" ... TMZ has learned.

The future of Vee was super murky -- not only was the character hit by a car ... but the actress who plays her, Lorraine Toussaint, is now on the ABC show "Forever."

But according to our sources, Toussaint will be reporting for filming Tuesday morning in New York. It's unclear if Vee will be alive and well ... or merely appearing in one of the show's flashbacks.

Bad news for the other inmates ... great news for us.

Keyshia Cole

Won't Be Prosecuted

For Attacking Chick at Birdman's Condo

10/28/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Keyshia Cole Attack

Keyshia Cole just dodged a bullet ... she will NOT be prosecuted for attacking a woman inside Birdman's L.A. condo ... but she may still get an anger check.

Sources in the L.A. City Attorney's Office tell TMZ ... they will not prosecute Cole after she went to Birdman's crib in the middle of the night last month, allegedly spotting a woman inside and going nuts on her.

Prosecutors have told Cole that instead of going to trial, they want her to appear at an informal office hearing, where someone from the City Attorney's Office will listen to her and the victim and then give the singer a stern warning not to do it again ... or else.

The hearing officer can require Cole to go to anger management courses ... something they've done in similar cases before.

It beats jail.

The genius behind "Sons of Anarchy" was rushed off set and into an L.A. hospital where he lost some weight -- in the form of an appendix -- and then Instagrammed the gruesome photos.

TMZ has confirmed ... Kurt Sutter went under the knife Monday morning after experiencing serious pain on the set of the hit FX show.

We're told Sutter is resting comfortably. It doesn't appear it will impact shooting.

Sugar Bear

Upset Honey Boo Boo

Exposed to Child Molester

10/27/2014 1:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Sugar Bear was polite but clear ... he's not happy that Mama June allowed a convicted child molester to get his hands on his daughter.

TMZ posted the pic of June on a staircase with Honey Boo Boo and Mark McDaniel -- the man who molested one of her other children. McDaniel has his hands on Honey Boo Boo's back.

Sugar Bear was measured, but made it clear it was not cool. He's also upset the show was cancelled.

Sinead O'Connor

AMA Producers DID Want the Pope

And I Got Proof!

10/27/2014 2:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Sinead O Connor AMA Pope FrancisSinead O'Connor says she's got proof AMA producers wanted her to stand alongside Pope Francis during their upcoming show ... and claims anyone saying otherwise is full of crap! 

We broke the story ... an American Music Awards source told us Sinead's recent rant against them was ridiculous -- because they never discussed a Pope appearance. But O'Connor says that's BS.

TMZ obtained emails between Sinead's management team and her record label ... clearly referring to a discussion they had with AMA staff about appearing alongside the Pope.

Sinead's manager claims when he asked who producers were trying to snag for the show ... the record label rep said, "Take a deep breath ... Pope Francis. No joke."

It appears Sinead's position is that the AMAs wanted her essentially for a stunt ... to bring her and the Pope together on the stage, given the backdrop of beef the singer had with the Pontiff.

O’Connor tells TMZ that she believes show producers are just trying to damage her career by labeling her a liar. She feels used.

The Situation

Tells The Judge:

My Anger's All Gone

The Situation Anger Management
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's anger problems are under control ... so says a judge who just cut him a big break in his criminal case for physically attacking his brother.
  
Sorrentino showed up in a New Jersey courtroom Monday with proof he completed a 12-week anger management program -- this for the tanning salon attack. In return, the judge allowed Sitch to cop a plea to a petty offense -- disorderly conduct. After paying a $506 fine, he walked out a free man.

Well, not exactly free. He's being prosecuted for tax fraud ... a felony.
