Betty White You Bet I'm Celebrating #97 ... It's Poker Night!!!

1/17/2019 10:21 AM PST

Betty White's been on this earth for 97 years, but she'll never stop hustlin' ... especially when it comes to playing cards.

The Hollywood legend's celebrating her 97th birthday today, and sources close to her tell TMZ she's using the special occasion as a reason to hook up with some friends Thursday night and play poker.

We're told Betty's poker pals go way back -- she's been anteing up with them for decades.

As for her health -- we're told Betty's feeling great and happy as ever. She was spotted out on a rainy day in Beverly Hills Wednesday, and as always ... she had nothing but smiles for her fans as she ran errands, accompanied by her driver.

As we told you ... the 'Golden Girls' star worked on her bday a couple years ago, but took it easy at a nice dinner with friends for her 96th.

Cheers to another year, Betty! Happy birthday!!! 

ATL Strip Clubs Join Forces for Super Bowl Sunday ... We're All Open for Business!!!

1/16/2019 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Finally ... a story about people in this country coming together, despite their differences, to achieve a common goal AND give the economy a boost.

GOD BLESS ATLANTA STRIP CLUBS!!!

Here's the deal -- adult entertainment venues in the ATL aren't allowed to be open on Sundays unless they also serve as restaurants. This is obviously bad news for food-free joints hoping to take advantage of thousands of extra folks in town for Super Bowl 53 ... but they weren't going to let the business opp pass without a fight.

So, several of the city's popular strip clubs -- including Blue Flame Lounge, The Cheetah and Magic City -- banded together and went to City Council to ask for an exception for Super Bowl Sunday ... and they got it! Somehow no one found out about the meeting and reported it.

Those in charge also agreed to let the clubs stay open an extra hour the entire week of the big game ... so the lights won't come on until 4 AM from January 28 through February 4.

As for the entertainment, Jackie -- the owner of Blue Flame -- says it has girls coming from Miami, L.A., NYC, Houston, Virginia and North Carolina who meet all of its requirements for the special weekend -- bomb body, pretty face, smell good ... and no bullet wounds.

Mr. Magic from Magic City tells us he'll have professional pole experts in the house -- the same ones who danced with Cardi B at Coachella -- putting on a nude Cirque du Soleil-esque show.

BTW ... all the dancers are required to have permits in Atlanta -- which cost $350 -- so the strip club exception means cha-ching for the city too.

USA! USA! USA!

Cuba Gooding Jr. Bags Up 51 w/ 'No Diggity' Karaoke

1/9/2019 9:35 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cuba Gooding Jr. -- who's got class, style and street knowledge by the pound -- rang in 51 with an awesome night of karaoke, and we gotta say ... he killed it.

The actor celebrated his birthday by singing karaoke last weekend at Il Piccolo Verde in Brentwood. His song of choice was Blackstreet's "No Diggity." True classic, for sure.

He was standing side by side with his longtime producer pal, Will Luke, who provided backing vocals. But, it was Cuba who was shining ... belting out the chorus. We're told this all went down around 1 AM Saturday ... so, fair to say he was partying hard for his big night. 

Funny enough ... he flew to NYC shortly after, where he kicked off a month-long Broadway run as the lead in "Chicago" this past Monday.

Dude's a machine ... no diggity, no doubt.

DABO DANCE MOVES ARE BACK!!!

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney pulled a page outta BlocBoy JB's book to celebrate winning it all on Monday night ... bringing out his "shoot" dance -- and his players totally lost it!!

Clemson shocked Alabama by whoopin' the Tide 44-16 in the College Football Playoff National Championship ... and the Tigers capped off the win with a dance party for the ages.

"Trust me, at the top it isn't lonely." #WeWinWeDance

A post shared by Clemson Football (@clemsonfb) on

Dabo's been known to get loose after Clemson dubs ... and already had the "dab" and "hit dem folk" in his repertoire.

But, this one had to be even better than his other moves, and the dude didn't disappoint.

Of course, there was more shade towards new Bama fan, Drake ... as the team jumped around and chanted his song, "Big Rings."

Don't stop dancin', Dabo.

Ex-'Love & Hip Hop' Star Hazel-E New Year, New Boo ... Cozies Up to NFL Player

1/4/2019 1:10 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Katt Williams' ex-GF, Hazel-E, is ringing in the New Year with a new man -- starting fresh with football star Lucky Whitehead.

The cute new couple hit up Ruth's Chris Steak House in Virginia on New Year's Eve, wining and dining on surf and turf as they snuggled up in a booth. You can tell they're definitely loving each other's company. 

After the meal, Lucky showed Hazel the wild side of his hometown of Manassas, VA by partying the night away at Breakers Sky Lounge.

It's a new relationship, but the former 'L&HH' star was already feeling Lucky's vibe ... doing some grinding on her hunky new bae.

Hazel and Katt dated for 2 years before breaking up in March 2016 ... the exes recently tried to rekindle their romance, getting back together and splitting again after only 3 weeks. 

We're told Lucky -- who played for the Dallas Cowboys and the NY Jets -- recently slid into Hazel's DMs and she decided to give him a chance. So far, so good.  

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Congresswoman Dancing in D.C. ... Claps Back At GOP!!!

1/4/2019 9:57 AM PST

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is taking her dance routines to our nation's capital -- brushing off her GOP haters and showcasing the dance moves they shaded ... right outside her Congressional office.

The freshly sworn-in Congresswoman from New York posted this clip Friday morning in response to a right-wing Twitter account digging up video of her dancing with friends back in college. Alexandria said, "I hear the GOP thinks women dancing are scandalous. Wait till they find out Congresswomen dance too!"

ICYMI ... an old clip showing AOC happily dancing on a roof with other Boston University students surfaced online Wednesday, the day before she was sworn into Congress. The clip was clearly meant to be a smear, though it actually sparked some strong defenses in support of Alexandria. 

We got AOC right after her hallway dance, and she was in good spirits! She even fangirled out for a minute about members of "The Breakfast Club" loving her moves ... before she returned to her congressional duties.

She who dances last ... 

Australian Rules Superstar Parties with LeBron, Kendall & Drake ... During U.S. Trip

1/4/2019 9:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nic Naitanui is one of the GREATEST athletes you've never heard of -- an Australian Rules Football superstar -- who spent his New Year's Eve partying with the most famous people on Earth. 

And, why? BECAUSE HE'S A STUD!! Seriously, watch his highlights. 

The 28-year-old West Coast Eagles star has spent the past few weeks in America while recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee. He's been training at UCLA. 

Despite his massive fame in Australia, NicNat has been flying under the radar for most of his trip because -- let's face it -- most Americans don't watch Aussie Rules. 

But, our photog, Charlie, is from Down Under -- and could barely believe it when he spotted the Australian sports hero hanging out like a normie in Santa Monica. 

Nic told us he's met a ton of big stars during his U.S. trip including Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner ... and spent his New Year's Eve with LeBron James and Drake

By the way, Nic is 6'7" and 223 pounds -- a freak of an athlete -- and worked out at the Philadelphia Eagles training facility in 2017.

So, is there a future in the NFL?

"I enjoy the game. I don't know ... maybe one day."

Nic says he'd probably be a good fit for a tight end since he's got some of the best hands in Aussie Rules.

Meantime, go back and watch Nic's highlights ... this dude is unreal. 

Tiffany Haddish Don't Get Turnt Up Before Work ... Miami Made Me Do It!!!

1/2/2019 1:23 PM PST
Breaking News

Tiffany Haddish has found several silver linings to bombing her NYE show in Miami -- most importantly ... she needs more sleep, and less South Beach.

Tiff was out Wednesday in L.A. when a photog asked her what went wrong. In a nutshell ... she's been burning it at both ends. She said, "I've slept in my bed a grand total of 28 days" for all of 2018. She added she now knows exactly what happens when your brain is fried. 

That being said ... she admits going hard on the party scene didn't help either. As Tiff put it, "Miami is a really dope city, and I probably shouldn't turn up before work."

She also found out who her real friends are, and ran down the all-star list of comedians who reached to show love and support.

As for the haters -- Tiffany has a message for them too.

Aubrey O'Day Booted from NYE Party ... After Refusing to Sing to Donald Trump Jr.

1/2/2019 1:27 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Aubrey O'Day rang in the New Year by getting kicked out of her own show ... at a faux birthday party at a strip club in honor of her alleged ex, Donald Trump Jr.

Folks at Larry Flynt's Hustler Club in Las Vegas tell TMZ ... Aubrey threw a fit Monday night when a bday cake was carted out for the Prez's son after she finished her 3-song set.

We're told she was pissed because she was asked to sing "Happy Birthday" to her former fling -- which was allegedly not part of her contract -- then one of her assistants got physical with a cocktail server.

We got video of the ex-Danity Kane member being escorted out after her performance, seemingly at the direction of one of the club's managers who shouts at her to leave the building.

We broke the story ... the New Year's Eve bash was a total troll job by the club, because Larry Flynt famously hates President Trump. Having it hosted by his son's alleged ex-mistress was part of the joke.

Seems like O'Day was tired of playing along though.

We reached out to her ... no word back so far.

Drake's NYE Party Kendall, Kylie & Travis All Attend ... Despite Kanye Feud

1/2/2019 6:39 AM PST

Drake's keeping his friends close and his frenemy's family even closer ... based on who showed up to his New Year's Eve bash.

As you know ... Kanye West went on the attack last weekend and issued a very public rebuke of Drake on NYE for following his wife on Instagram, but that didn't stop Kim's sisters from having a good time at Drizzy's champagne party.

Kendall Jenner, Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott all attended The Mod Selection New Year's Party Monday night at Delilah in L.A. -- hosted by Drake -- despite the bad blood currently between him and Ye.

It's possible the rappers' relationship's on the mend ... Drake unfollowed Kim on IG just hours before midnight on NYE, so perhaps that was enough to smooth things over and allow Kanye's kin to hang out with Drake without backlash.

Kanye even tweeted on New Year's Day "I love Drake 2019 we will all heal."

However, he also used the first day of 2019 to go on a Twitter rant about Trump.

One step forward, two steps back.

Comedian Alonzo Bodden Tiffany Handled Bombed Set Well ... She Made It a Party!!!

1/1/2019 3:14 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tiffany Haddish made the best of a bad situation during her tough New Year's Eve stand-up performance ... so says a fellow seasoned comedian. 

We got comic Alonzo Bodden -- who won season 3 of "Last Comic Standing" -- out at LAX Tuesday, where he had nothing but good things to say about the way Tiffany handled her show in Miami the night before.

Seeing how she was bombing ... he says Tiff was wise to get in on the joke by cracking open a bottle of Ciroc and making a party of it. Alonzo tells us every comedian bombs, and her reaction was nothing short of classy and professional, considering the circumstances.

As we reported ... a lot of people were walking out on Tiffany in the middle of her set. She vowed on stage to never allow herself to be in that type of situation again -- and she wasn't talking about stand-up either. Tiffany appeared to be exhausted from partying the night before. 

She addressed the failed set on Twitter, saying she wished it was better. 

Something tells us we'll see her back on the mic soon enough.

Trey Songz put rumors that he's been dating Steve Harvey's 21-year-old stepdaughter to rest on Monday ... by confirming they're absolutely boo'd up heading into 2019.

The R&B singer was performing at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco for New Year's Eve and people couldn't help but notice a girl was clinging to his back with her arms wrapped around his torso as he sang. Well, that was Lori Harvey ... Steve's youngest stepchild.

She showed up on his Insta story earlier in the night wearing the same gold dress that was seen on the chick wrapping him up. No question ... it was her, and they're into each other.

Trey and Lori have been hanging out a lot through the holidays, and it now seems they're an item in the new year. 

Lori's an up-and-coming model who's walked for Fashion Week in Milan and Paris. It's clear why she's caught his eye ... she's gorgeous.
