Candy Spelling ain't no condo squatter ... She just scored a big legal victory against her landlord, who claimed Candy was living in her building illegally and wanted to give her the boot.
TMZ broke the story ... Candy's been living in a $28,000-a-month condo at the famous Carlyle building in L.A. while the finishing touches are being put on her $47 million penthouse. Seems the work is taking longer than expected.
The landlord sued Candy in February, claiming she refused to hightail it out of her unit ... even though the lease had expired.
But Candy fired back, insisting she had the right to extend her lease for six months ... so that's exactly what she did. The judge agreed, and ruled in Candy's favor.
Candy's lawyer Michael Saltz tells TMZ, her next step will be to force the landlord to pay her extremely large legal bill.
Melissa McCarthy is new to the director's chair ... but she's already acting like a BOSS ... the "Bridesmaids" star just FIRED an extra for mistreating her own little kid on set ... TMZ has learned.
It happened yesterday in Wilmington, NC ... where they're filming "Tammy," a comedy McCarthy is co-directing with husband and fellow first-timer Ben Falcone.
The extra, a woman in her 20s, brought along her child -- age approximately 4-5 -- for the daylong shoot by a lake ... and the standard $58 payday ... sources tell TMZ.
Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with her kid all morning ... constantly harping on the child to "stop it" and quiet down ... loudly enough to disrupt the production, which included more than 200 extras.
Sources say the last straw came when the mom harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist -- and McCarthy saw it all. The director IMMEDIATELY had PAs bounce the woman ... saying she wouldn't tolerate abuse on her set ... and that was that.
The woman's identity was not disclosed. Reps for McCarthy had no immediate comment.
Moral of the story: Don't attempt anything shady around Melissa McCarthy ... she's ALWAYS ON WATCH ...

We broke the story ... 44-year-old Jacqueline Walters Danforth -- who famously discussed her troubled teenage years on various TV specials with her mom -- was arrested for DUI in Naples, FL on May 19.

During the encounter, cops say both Jackie and a male passenger -- described as her BF -- appeared to be extremely intoxicated.
Cops say ... they went to place the man in handcuffs -- which pissed Jackie off ... so she grabbed at one of the officers and "began shouting."
The arresting officer states in the report, "I was afraid that the suspect may run into traffic on the highway, so she was taken to the ground due to her unpredictable behavior, then secured in handcuffs."
According to the report, Jacqueline eventually took a breathalyzer test and blew a .218 -- more than TWICE the legal limit.
She was eventually arrested for DUI ... and was released several hours later on $1,000 bond.

Jones was at LAX yesterday when he told TMZ ... even though it's only been 2 months since the controversial play, he doesn't hold a grudge against people like Ice Cube-- who called him a dirty cheater days after the play.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver are in no rush to get divorced ... and there are 2 lines of speculation -- either they're so rich it doesn't matter, or they may actually get back together.
Several sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ ... neither Arnold nor Maria feel any urgency to get a judge to make the divorce official, even though all of the money and custody issues have been worked out. The reason, they say, is simple ... They're worth approximately $400 million -- which they agree they'll split down the middle -- so it's not like they need the divorce to buy a house.
Short story -- neither one of them is in a hurry to pull the trigger, because it will have NO IMPACT on their day-to-day lives.
And other sources say there's a different reason why they haven't gotten divorced -- they are not done with each other, and there's still a chance they'll get back together. Our sources say both Arnold and Maria have sent mixed messages to their friends and family -- at times saying they want the divorce, and other times talking about how they still feel love for their longtime partner.
One source says ... lately Maria is more amenable to divorce because she's hearing that Arnold has a girlfriend.
FYI, Arnold and Maria were together last weekend at their daughter Christina's graduation ... looking pretty happy.
Lindsay Lohan has just been sued for $5 million she doesn't have ... all because of her highly-publicized drug problems, TMZ has learned.
D.N.A.M. Apparel Industries -- a clothing manufacturer -- just filed the countersuit against Lindsay in response to Lindsay's lawsuitagainst the company.
In her lawsuit, Lindsay says she struck a business deal with D.N.A.M. in 2009 allowing them to manufacture clothes for her "6126" clothing line -- but D.N.A.M. stiffed her on a massive licensing fee. Lindsay wants $1.1 million in damages.
But D.N.A.M. is now coming back at Lindsay for nearly five times that amount, insisting SHE'S the reason their business deal fell apart.
According to D.N.A.M., the company did its darndest to sell their 6126 clothes to high-end third party retailers -- but by spring 2010, no one would touch the brand ... because Lindsay was back in rehab ... and her legal problems were playing out in the media "like a Greek tragedy."
D.N.A.M. claims Lindsay's "drug-addled image" destroyed 6126's reputation, and rendered the clothing line completely unsellable.
D.N.A.M. says it invested millions in 6126 for nothing -- and now it's suing for breach of contract and fraud, demanding at least $5 million in damages.
And the irony ... Lindsay's currently back in rehab yet again.
Lindsay's attorney, Perry C. Wander, tells TMZ ... "The license agreement does not have a morals clause that allows the company to suspend payment for any behavior. The contract is not in LL's name thus she cannot be held personally liable. The cross claim is therefore frivolous and totally without merit and will be defended vigorously."
