Teri Hatcher runs with daughter for charity in NYC Marathon. Former "Desperate Housewives" TV star Teri Hatcher and her daughter joined the throng of New York City Marathon runners Sunday. Hatcher, 53, finished in 5 hours, 51 minutes and 21 seconds, while her 20-year-old daughter, Emerson Tenney, clocked in 5 seconds behind Mom. The pair ran to raise money for the international charity Save the Children. "I love the mother-daughter journey of it," Hatcher told The Post after the race. "It really allowed us to have a lot of conversations about being there for each other." The actress added, "I have to say, the random kindness that you get offered from the fans that line the race is just, it could bring you to tears, it's so amazing." (PageSix)
Tiki Barber wants beers, hamburger after finishing NYC Marathon. Former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber had a few things on his mind after finishing the New York City Marathon on Sunday.

"It was a great day, so many people. It was great, so exciting. I was high-fiving people." (PageSix)
Kanye West distancing himself from politics hasn't affected his relationship with Candace Owens, nor has it affected her "Blexit" numbers ... at least, so says Candace Owens. The conservative provocateur tells TMZ ... her apology to Kanye was sincere, and she completely respects his decision to back away from politics. She also says she and Ye are still cool even after he said she used him, denying he designed her "Blexit" clothing line. Kanye certainly didn't sound like he was cool. Candace called the "rumor" that Kanye was behind the "Blexit" design a blatant lie, adding that she was sorry for the bad fallout. Fact is ... Candace had said Kanye created the logo and coloring for "Blexit." Candace Owens in her statement: "I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT." Candace Owens just days ago: "This logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West." Either way, she says Kanye drawing a line in the sand between himself and "Blexit" has not put a damper on the movement, which encourages black people to bail from the Democratic Party. In fact, Candace says it's quite the opposite ... it's stronger than ever. She insists orders for "Blexit" gear have been pouring in since it launched, and that not one person has requested a refund in the wake of Kanye calling her out. Candace also says thousands of emails are coming in that are supportive of the cause. As she puts it ... celebrity endorsements don't make or break a movement. (TMZ)
Ray J understands better than anyone why Farrah Abraham's refusing to fight in a celebrity boxing match ... 'cause promoters can't keep their word in the money department. We're told Ray J was all set to referee Farrah's fight with Nicole "Hoopz" Alexander, slated for November 10 in Atlantic City. Ray's team initially wanted $50k plus travel costs and security but the promoter, Damon Feldman, didn't have the cash, so Ray agreed to do it for $25k. Problem is ... a few weeks ago Feldman and fight investor Samantha Goldberg came back to Ray and asked if he'd ref for less dough 'cause the event wasn't selling. Ray's manager, David Weintraub, wasn't having it ... saying no dice and pulling out of the event altogether. Sounds like this was the beginning of the end. As we reported ... Farrah, also repped by Weintraub, pulled the plug on the event because she says the same promoter screwed her on the deal. For what it's worth ... Feldman and Golberg say there will be severe consequences if Farrah backs out. (TMZ)
At $31.7 million a year ... Roger Goodell is actually underpaid -- so says Dana White. "That's the worst f***ing job in sports," White says of being the NFL's commish. We got the UFC honcho out in NYC ... and asked about football's latest controversy -- a 49ers cheerleader taking a knee during the national anthem -- and that's when Dana said he's SUPER STOKED to not be in Goodell's shoes. It's seemingly one headache to mitigate after another --- Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, President Trump, and now, cheerleaders protesting -- and White seems so grateful that's not going down in the UFC. "Worst job in sports," Dana says ... "They're not paying that guy enough money." As for how Dana would handle it if it did happen in his league ... he says it wouldn't. "We don't do the national anthem. So, they can kneel all they want." BTW ... Dana says he wishes NFL players would find a different way to protest, but added, "At the end of the day, it's a free country. You can do whatever you want." Interesting, considering Dana is a big Donald Trump guy ... and POTUS says NFL owners should fire players who kneel for the anthem, referring to them as "sons of bitches." (TMZ)
Floyd Mayweather has signed a deal to fight on New Year's Eve in Japan -- and it might be an MMA match -- but it ain't against Conor McGregor or Khabib Nurmagomedov. The 41-year-old boxing superstar just announced he'll be fighting at RIZIN 14 on Dec. 31st against an undefeated 20-year-old kickboxer named Tenshin Nasukawa. Floyd says he's still working with the promotion to decide on whether it will be boxing rules, kickboxing rules, MMA rules, etc. Floyd says the fighting rules will be sorted out in the coming weeks. Floyd also says the two sides are still figuring out what weight the fight will be at. Floyd held a press conference in Japan late Sunday night -- Floyd did not say how much money he expects to make for the fight. As for Tenshin, RIZIN says he's 20-years-old and has more than 30 fights under his belt. His kickboxing record is 27-0. The fight will go down at Saitama Super Arena -- the 3rd largest indoor arena in the world. It seats around 36,500 people. As we previously reported, Floyd has had some MMA training in the past -- and UFC champ Tyron Woodley has offered to work with him because he believes Mayweather can really win. Floyd says he chose to have this fight in Japan because he loves the country and the people. As for his opponent, Floyd says the guy is in great shape -- "very young, very fast" -- and he's impressed with Tenshin's physique. Says the guy looks like a serious gym rat. Tenshin says Floyd is taller than he looks and he believes he'll be able to "hit him" when they fight. Floyd is 50-0 as a pro boxer -- with his last victory coming over Conor McGregor. Mayweather has recently told us he's been itching to fight again and predicted his next bout would be a 9-figure boxing match against Khabib. Now that he's inked this deal, seems the Khabib fight will be on the backburner ... at least for now. "I'm very happy to be back in Tokyo," Mayweather told the media ... "I look forward to coming back more often." Mayweather says his relationship with RIZIN is bigger than this fight -- but unclear exactly what that means. Obviously, he wants to continue to work with the promotion, but unclear if it will be as a fighter or a promoter. (TMZ)
