'Family Feud' Planned for Hiltons vs. Kardashians, But ... Hiltons Bailed

2/25/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Kardashians played against each other on "Family Feud," but TMZ has learned it wasn't supposed to be that way ... it was scheduled to be a showdown between the Kardashians and the Hiltons.

Sources connected to the production tell us ... they were in a mad scramble when they were contacted 4 days before Saturday's taping and informed the Hiltons weren't playing.

Our sources say Paris and Kathy were on-board, but patriarch Rick Hilton was having none of it. We're told Rick -- who runs the monster real estate company Hilton & Hyland -- felt it wasn't right for him to appear because he's not in entertainment ... and it looked "thirsty."

We're told Nicky thought it was nuts for the family to appear so she was out, and Barron and his fiancee ultimately decided not to do it.

Fact is ... the families go back 3 decades and they really like each other, but it wasn't right for the Hiltons.

So instead, the Kardashians/Jenners and the Wests battled it out ... Donner Party style. 

Justin Bieber Downsizes With New $17.9 Million WeHo Rental

2/25/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

For most Justin Bieber's new modern crib would be a dream come true, but by Bieber's standards it's a shell of his last place.

The Biebs just secured a new rental ... a $17.9 million crib in West Hollywood above the Sunset Strip. At 6,000 square feet and 3 bedrooms, it's almost half the size of his last pad in Bev Hills, which was a 8,600 square foot, 6 bedroom bachelor pad.

There's a movie theater and the infinity pool looks out on an incredible view of L.A., but the coolest feature has to be the master closet, which looks like it was inspired by a DJ's booth.

The last place set Bieber back $55k a month. Sources say he is shelling around the same for his new digs.

Drake's Dad I 'Love' LaVar Ball 'Cause He Don't Kiss Ass!!

2/25/2018 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

LaVar Ball just got the stamp of approval from one of the most famous dads in the world, not named LaVar Ball -- 'cause Drake's pops says he's ALL ABOUT the Ballfather!!

We got Dennis Graham out at TAO in L.A. -- and he laid out the #1 reason why he's got nothing but respect for the BBB patriarch.

"I love him because he's outspoken," Graham told TMZ Sports

"He's an outspoken guy and that's what you gotta be. Gotta speak your mind."

Dennis wasn't done there ...  telling us that LaVar wilin' out on the Lakers, UCLA, Trump and anyone else in his warpath is exactly what he should be doing! 

"People have been kissing butts for too long ... he doesn't do that."

Wonder if Drake feels the same way ...

J Balvin Drops $15k on 'Flawless' Grill

2/25/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Reggaeton star J Balvin added a lot of flash to his smile ... or at least half of it, because his bottom teeth are blingin' like crazy now.

The "Mi Gente" singer hooked up with celeb jeweler Mr. Flawless to commission a perfect grill ... which we're told set him back $15k! And that's just for half of his pearly whites.

The shiny grill is packed with 7 carats of diamonds -- all VVS grade, of course. What else would you expect from a guy known for his sense of style.

J Balvin's one of the hottest artists in reggaeton and Latin music, best known here in the States for his recent hit remixes with Beyonce and Justin Bieber.

He also survived a plane crash in 2016. Based on his chart success, and his pricey new mouth piece ... we'd say someone's living right and large.

Soap Star Winsor Harmon The Bold and the Bladder Full ... Arrested for Drunk in Public

2/25/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

This one's bold, but it ain't beautiful -- Winsor Harmon was arrested after allegedly getting loaded in his car and peeing in front of a live audience ... TMZ has learned. 

Law enforcement sources tell us the famous soap star -- who starred in "The Bold and the Beautiful" as Thorne Forrester for two decades -- was arrested last week in the San Fernando Valley after eyewitnesses allegedly saw him urinating at a park in broad daylight.

We're told cops were called to the scene and Harmon was found inside his SUV in the parking lot -- where officers saw empty wine bottles scattered about ... and Harmon without a pair of pants on. Sources say he admitted he'd stayed there overnight. 

Cops arrested him for being drunk in public. 

It's interesting ... Harmon had his iconic role as Forrester recast last year with actor Ingo Rademacher. Makes ya wonder if the soap woes seeped into reality.

We've reached out to Harmon for comment ... so far, no word back. Say it isn't so, Thorne!

'Seven Seconds' Star Race Relations More Tense in U.S. than England

2/25/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Clare-Hope Ashitey -- star of the new Netflix drama "Seven Seconds" -- is addressing the issue of race in America ... by pointing out the vast differences between the U.S. and her homeland.

We got the English actress at LAX Friday, and she tells us the racial atmosphere here makes her feel more uncomfortable and tense than she does back home ... and she has a few ideas why.

Clare admits things are far from perfect across the pond, but she thinks her people have more empathy and, more significantly, she claims they aren't still recovering from the "gaping wound" that is America's history of slavery.

The actress also brings up another hot-button issue -- guns -- specifically regarding police, as another key factor.

The good news -- Ashitey thinks the addition of Meghan Markle to the Royal Family will do some good for race relations both in England and here ... seriously.

Btw ... "Seven Seconds" is available now on Netflix, and also deals with these same topics.

This week was all about guns -- and getting rid of some of them. And it also had its share of breakups. So, we gotta ask ...

Kylie & Travis Late Lunch Date in the 'Bu ... Sans Stormi

2/24/2018 7:40 PM PST
Exclusive Video

Kylie Jenner and Travis Scott took a parenting break to spend some quality time together, and we got them taking off in a HOT whip afterward ... probably to get home to their baby.

The couple was spotted at Nobu Malibu Saturday afternoon -- the first time we've seen them out in public together since the birth of their daughter, Stormi. The 2 didn't say much, but the LaFerrari they hopped in speaks volumes ... they're still livin' the good life.

The car's apparently Scott's push present to Kylie ... a $1.4 MILLION push present.

Kylie and Travis have ventured out separately since they became parents, but still no Stormi sighting ... so all we have to go off so far is what Travis said -- "She's beautiful." Kylie's also said Stormi looks just like her when she was a baby.

Speaking of beautiful ... take a look at the rides in that parking lot.

It's good to be rich.

CB surprised the ladies at A-List Music & Co. in L.A. Wednesday by popping in the studio while they were choreographing the night's routine. The class is founded by Houston native Kyhanna Mayfield. Chris had heard about her Kys Klass from one of its regulars.

We're told Chris hooked up everyone in the group with his Black Pyramid gear, and gave a speech about empowerment and women being confident bosses and demanding respect in the industry.

As a bonus, he even played some of his unreleased tracks from his phone for them to dance to ... and they made it look really good.

Kim & Kanye Pitted Against Kin ... On 'Family Feud'!!!

2/24/2018 2:01 PM PST

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West vs. Khloe and Kendall Jenner sounds like a face-off in the fashion world, but instead ... it's all about game show pride!!!

Kim's been posting behind-the-scenes footage of the family's apparent upcoming appearance on "Family Feud" ... and it looks like most of the gang's there for the action, including Kris. No Kourtney spotted, and Kylie's not there either ... but that makes sense since she just had a baby.

Kim says the crowd doesn't know who to expect before they take the stage, and the premise of this episode is Wests against Kardashians/Jenners ... which should make for good TV.

Interestingly ... this isn't the first time the Kardashian crew's been on the show. The fam went head-to-head with Deion Sanders' family in 2008 on 'Celeb Family Feud' back when Al Roker was hosting.

Things sure have changed a lot since then.

U.S. Navy SEAL Rob O'Neill I Was Bumpin' The Game Before Killing Bin Laden

2/24/2018 11:33 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The U.S. Navy SEAL who's credited with firing the kill shots on Osama bin Laden says he listened to a banger the night of the raid, and we gotta say ... it's an excellent choice.

We got retired Navy SEAL, Robert O'Neill, heading into the Gaylord National Resort near D.C. Saturday, and asked if he's had to pay for a drink since taking down the man behind 9/11 ... he has, but only by choice.

Our guy then asks Rob if he jammed to any special music that night in May 2011, and he tells us he bumped "Red Nation" by The Game ... and he'd love to meet the rapper.

Rob also addresses a popular conspiracy theory about what happened to bin Laden after his death with a definitive answer ... check it out.
