TMZ Gives the Contestants a Crash Course in Being in the Spotlight on 'American Idol' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 7th 2011 11:38PM
trip to TMZ, 'American Idol'In past seasons, the folks at 'TMZ' have followed around various 'American Idol' (Thu., 8PM ET on FOX) contestants, keeping fans in the loop as to what they're doing now, and in some cases what they've done in the past. It hasn't always been good news.

This season, however, the Idols got a chance to get back at them a little when they went to TMZ's offices for "some serious media training," according to executive producer Harvey Levin.

There wasn't a lot of practical training, though. They advised Paul McDonald to use spit to style his hair if he ever gets arrested and suggested Haley Reinhart try to turn her lipstick-on-the-face incident into an endorsement.

'American Idol' airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8PM ET on FOX.

Did ABC Wait Too Long to Air Their Charlie Sheen Interview?

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 1st 2011 12:00PM
Andrea Canning talks to Charlie Sheen on 20/20 on March 1, 2011
At some point on Saturday evening, the folks at ABC News must have been feeling very proud of themselves.

Andrea Canning had just spent the day with Charlie Sheen, the first television reporter to do an extensive video with the actor since he let loose with various tirades on the radio and TMZ, causing CBS and the producers of 'Two and a Half Men' to shut things down for the season. ABC made the big announcement, calling it 'The First Interview,' and planned to debut it on 'Good Morning America' this morning, followed by a big splashy '20/20' special tonight.

It may have been the first television interview Sheen gave, but it sure as heck wouldn't be the last.

The folks at the Alphabet Net got scooped, then scooped again, and then scooped yet again. But the way the network has been reacting to these scoops makes us wonder if they think that it's still 1991 instead of 2011.

There's a Porn Version of 'Reno 911!' ... for Some Reason (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Jul 27th 2010 9:00PM
There's a Porn Version of 'Reno 911!' ... for Some ReasonWhat would it be like to see a gigantic pornographic image of yourself on the big screen? That's the question facing the stars of 'Reno 911!' Because as it turns out, there is a porn version of the now-canceled comedy show. Why is there a porn version? How could that possibly be sexy? Your guesses are as good as ours.

The porno version is called 'Reno 911: A XXX Parody.' (Clever title!) And actual 'Reno' star Thomas Lennon went to see the adult movie. The celebrity news show 'TMZ' (weekdays, syndicated) has the full scoop.

Lennon checked out the film, and got to see the porn version of himself. And apparently, Lennon's porno doppelganger is a little more well-endowed that he is. "I'm talking about -- honestly -- a foot," Lennon said, while spreading his hands to indicate the size of the man's, um, tool.

'TMZ' Goes Behind the Scenes on Snooki's Ridiculous Commercial (VIDEO)

by Oliver Miller, posted Mar 25th 2010 8:53PM
Snooki's Ridiculous Commercial on 'TMZ'Snooki from 'Jersey Shore' has brought us many things. Among them: The concept that wearing your hair in a "Hair Bump " is a good idea, and that excessive tanning and drinking is the pathway to success. And now Snooki is filming her first commercial, which 'TMZ' (6:30PM ET on Fox) got a peek at.

The commercial features Snooki and her current boyfriend touting "Sunlove" self-tanning spray. Snooki's boyfriend flexes his arm muscles, showing off the fake tan, and Snooki uses the phrase "Snookerized." As in: "So I just 'Snookerized' one of my man's gorilla arms." "Snookerized!" An entirely new word ... and yet another gift from our pal Snooki (real name: Nicole Polizzi). But wait. It gets worse.

'Real World' Star Puck and Son Injured In Serious Car Accident

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 25th 2010 10:37AM
PuckLong before there was a Puck on 'Glee' there was another Puck on TV, the one on MTV's reality show 'The Real World.' David "Puck" Rainey was the roommate during the show's fantastic (back when the show could actually be called "fantastic") third season in San Francisco, the one that argued with his roommates, made gay jokes, stuck fingers in the peanut butter and eventually got kicked out. We haven't heard much about him in the past several years, but he's in the news again today.

TMZ is reporting that he was in a serious car accident with his eight year-old son. Both were seriously injured.

Corey Haim Dead at 38

Haim'Lost Boys' star Corey Haim is dead.

Haim was found by his mother at his apartment near Burbank, CA. There's no word yet on cause of death, but TMZ is reporting that he died of an overdose.

While it's too bad that he might be remembered for all of his recent activities, including drug use, fights, and the unfortunate reality show 'The Two Coreys' that he did with frequent co-star Corey Feldman, he was actually in some good movies when he was younger. 'Lucas' and 'The Lost Boys' are great flicks. Haim also starred in two short-lived TV shows, 'The Edison Twins' in 1984 and 'Roomies' in 1987.

Live from Phoenix, Arizona, It's Conan O'Brien!

by Danny Gallagher, posted Mar 8th 2010 8:27AM
Coco might be unemployed, but he's not spending his days half-naked in a bean bag chair and hitting a bag of Doritos like he's trying to earn "Nacho Miles."

He's hard at work on a new live show, the big loophole in his contract that precludes him going on television for some time, starting with Phoenix, Arizona.

TMZ confirmed that Conan is holding a stage show at the Dodge Theatre on April 30 and tickets go on sale today. Ticketmaster started selling seats for the soon to be sold out show but took the listing down when TMZ broke the story. A theater representative confirmed the show will still go on as planned.

There isn't any word yet on what the show is exactly, but expect a lot of angry puppets, a heavy dose of death humor and 1,001 cracks at Jay Leno that would have gotten him thrown in FCC's "Naughty Word Jail" until the end of the next century. In other words, the depth of your standard NBC contract.
