Omarosa 'Big Brother' Hospital Scare Was a Dizzy Doozy

2/11/2018 5:54 PM PST

Omarosa went to the hospital last week after a dizzying bowling competition on "Celebrity Big Brother" ... and the game seemed pretty intense on TV.

The former White House staffer was among the first guests to partake in the game -- aptly called Bowlerina -- in which players have to spin around to lower a gate guarding some pins ... and then try bowling them over from afar. 

Omarosa went up against Marissa Jaret Winokur, and kinda got her ass handed to her in the process. More importantly, though, she had to spin around twice to lower her gate ... and appeared to suffer an asthma attack as a result. 

As we reported ... Omarosa was sent to the hospital after the game, which left some house guests speculating she faked the attack to get some rest outside the house.

O was out of the house for nearly 19 hours ... we'll let you be the judge as to the seriousness of her attack.

'Celebrity Big Brother' Lots of Alcohol = Scandalous Secrets ... You Listening, Trump?

2/9/2018 12:50 AM PST

"Celebrity Big Brother" is out to spill secrets this season, because producers are plying the contestants with truth serum in the form of booze.

Production sources tell TMZ ... the bigwigs have changed the policy of limiting alcohol consumption ... the spigot is wide open and the cast is taking full advantage. Omarosa, James Maslow, Brandi Glanville, Ross Mathews and the other houseguests have partaken every night since January 31 when they entered the house.

The buzz we're hearing ... producers want Omarosa to spill the beans on her tenure in the White House. She's already started, turning on Trump ... saying everyone should be worried about the Prez, saying things in the W.H. are "so bad."

The show used to be stingy in the alcohol department ... it was typical contestants would share 2 bottles of wine and a few 6-packs each night, but producers are worried celebrities play things closer to the vest than the average Joe, so a little alcohol -- or a lot -- always does the trick. 

The show has even created a meetin' place for booze-fueled convos -- a new bar. 

Omarosa, have another?

Chuck Norris Sues CBS & Sony for $30 Million 'Walker' Is Making Cash I'm Not Getting!!!

2/1/2018 7:21 PM PST

Chuck Norris fact: he was the star of "Walker, Texas Ranger," and now he claims he's getting screwed out of some serious profits from the shows video-on-demand money.

Chuck's company, Top Kick Productions, is going after CBS and Sony Pictures for allegedly cheating him out of his share of the streaming VOD revenue ... according to new legal docs. The issue revolves around an alleged 23 percent cut of profits CBS agreed to give Chuck in 1993, which he claims he hasn't received from the on-demand revenue.

According to the suit ... CBS and Sony have conspired to promote 'Walker' more through on-demand services and less on TV and DVD to avoid paying him his share, and he hasn't seen a dime of his profits from S-VOD since 2004.

Chuck's company is suing for breach of contract and shady dealing ... and wants at least $30 mil to make it right.

Julie Chen No Doghouse for Hubby Les Moonves After He Demanded I Take Pay Cut!!!

1/30/2018 6:49 AM PST

Julie Chen is the perfect employee AND the perfect wife ... nobody knows this better than Les Moonves

We got Julie leaving 'The Late Show' Monday in NYC and asked her about her CBS top dog hubby demanding she take a pay cut for the upcoming "Celebrity Big Brother" season. Les reportedly told Julie the salary trim wasn't up for negotiation ... since the upcoming season is significantly shorter than the usual 90-day plus of "Big Brother."

Check it out ... Julie wasn't fazed by the demand. BTW, she seems excited about Omarosa joining the cast.

Kendrick Lamar Kicks Off 2018 Grammys By 'Shooting' His Dancers

1/28/2018 5:20 PM PST

Kendrick Lamar started the 2018 Grammys with some violent imagery that included him fake shooting his dancers onstage.

K.Dot kicked off the award show Sunday night with a politically-charged performance -- during which he "shot" down his many dancers one by one ... sound effects and all. 

It was a little shocking to say the least, and presenter Dave Chappelle expressed as much by asking ... "Is this on cable? On CBS?" He added ... "This brother's taking enormous chances."

Looks like we're in for quite a show.

Omarosa Back to Reality (TV) ... Stars in 'Celebrity Big Brother'

1/28/2018 5:01 PM PST

Omarosa's got herself a new gig even before her speaking gig starts -- and it's back on reality TV ... as in "Celebrity Big Brother" on CBS.

Omarosa was announced as one of many stars that'll be in the 'Big Brother' house next week in a quick promo that played right before the 2018 Grammy Awards began Sunday.

She'll be in there with the likes of Shannon Elizabeth, Brandi GlanvilleKeshia Knight Pulliam, Chuck Liddell, Metta World Peace, and lots more. The first episode's set to air next Wednesday ... so we'll find out who else is there soon enough.

As we reported ... Omarosa recently signed on as a speaker with the American Program Bureau after leaving her job at the White House. She'll be asking for up to $50k for gig, depending on the venue.

Looks like she's getting her feet wet first, though, with some familiar territory in front of the cameras.

Dylan Farrow Describes Alleged Molestation ... Cries at Woody Allen's Denial

1/18/2018 6:34 AM PST

Dylan Farrow broke down in tears as, for the first time on camera, she described Woody Allen's alleged molestation of her when she was 7.

Dylan sat down with CBS's Gayle King and claimed her adoptive father, Allen, took her to the attic of their home in 1992 and "touched my private parts." She says that's how she described it as a child, but today, as a 32-year-old woman, she says "he touched my labia and my vulva."

Dylan started crying when Gayle played a clip of Allen on "60 Minutes" denying the molestation.

For the record, Allen was investigated twice, criminally, but never charged.

Allen told CBS ... investigators found it likely Dylan had been coached by Mia to tell the story of the alleged molestation.

He added, "Even though the Farrow family is cynically using the opportunity afforded by the Time's Up movement to repeat this discredited allegation, that doesn't make it any more true today than it was in the past. I never molested my daughter – as all investigations concluded a quarter of a century ago."

Ann Curry Verbal Sexual Harassment 'Pervasive' at NBC

1/17/2018 5:59 AM PST

Ann Curry makes it clear ... the conduct that got Matt Lauer fired from anchoring "Today" was no surprise to her ... because she says that was the culture at NBC.

Curry appeared on "CBS This Morning" Wednesday to talk about her experiences with Lauer and others.  She clearly knew the anchors were going to zero in on her former co-host yet seemed reluctant to open up ... though she did.

Curry left the show in 2012 after a tumultuous run as Lauer's co-anchor. It was rumored the 2 had an intense dislike for each other and many thought Lauer was behind Curry's ousting.

CBS Honcho Les Moonves Clearly Conflicted Over Possible Oprah 2020 Run

1/11/2018 6:42 AM PST

CBS's top dog, Les Moonves, loves him some Oprah, but it's not hard to read between the lines ... he wants her to stay on "60 Minutes."

The CBS honcho was in WeHo Wednesday night leaving Craig's, when our photog asked about a possible 2020 presidential run by O. He heaped praise on her, but then our guy made it more interesting by noting Oprah would have to leave CBS ... where she's now a Special Correspondent for "60 Minutes." 

Les is one of the smartest businessmen in Hollywood, so it's no surprise he wants to keep one of the most influential people in the world under his tent.

Interesting clip.

Gayle King Prez Winfrey's Got a Nice Ring ... But She Ain't Convinced Yet

1/9/2018 9:15 AM PST

Gayle King is doubling down ... trying to clarify Stedman Graham's comment about Oprah running for President, and throwing in her own 2 cents too.

We got Gayle leaving CBS Tuesday in NYC, after she went on the air and offered a tightrope answer as to whether Oprah was serious about a presidential bid in 2020.

The co-anchor said Oprah was intrigued, but probably not actively considering it at this point -- despite folks already hitting her up to run a campaign.

Gayle got direct with us, insisting while SHE personally thinks President Winfrey is easy on the ears ... Oprah is not convinced, and is not seriously considering a run.

We also press her on Stedman's L.A. Times quote where he said, "She would absolutely do it" if people wanted her. Gayle can't handle that truth, and thinks reporters got it wrong. 

Dan Rather Burger Boner!!! Loses In-N-Out Virginity

12/8/2017 7:14 AM PST

Dan Rather just broke a BIG story that changes everything -- for him, at least, because the legendary newsman just bit into his first In-N-Out burger!

Dan was seriously moved by the experience after making the long-awaited fast food stop in the Bay Area. Yeah, he's 86 years old, but as he wrote ... "I can honestly say it was worth the wait."

The CBS news vet is touring to promote his book, "What Unites Us." Sounds like he found a new chapter in between the patties of a double-double: "When in doubt, I now will 'In N Out.' And a great milkshake can certainly be a big part of #WhatUnitesUs."

Don't forget the fries, Dan.

'Entourage' Star Kevin Dillon Jeremy Piven's Getting Railroaded in 'Witch Hunt'

12/2/2017 12:30 AM PST

Kevin Dillon says his old pal and "Entourage" co-star, Jeremy Piven, is a gentleman who's being wrongly blacklisted over sexual misconduct allegations.

We got Kevin -- who starred on the HBO hit with Piven for 7 years -- and he says Piven's new show getting axed on CBS just ain't right.

According to Kev, Jeremy's nothin' but a gentleman. Can't tell if he's doing Drama here, but he's also shocked by the Lauer scandal.

Bottom line for Johnny Chase ... find the truth, first.

Eli Manning Gets Offer to Broadcast NFL ... 'We'd Take Him' at CBS!

11/29/2017 7:23 AM PST

Looks like Eli Manning's gonna be alright if he decides to hang it up ... 'cause he's already got a job offer from one of the NFL's biggest networks!

We got CBS honcho Les Moonves out at Craig's with Al Michaels ... and when we asked about Eli going the Tony Romo route, Les was all about it.

"We'd take him in a second," Moonves told TMZ Sports

Al also gave the Giants QB a ringing endorsement -- saying Manning "absolutely" has it in him to slide over to the broadcast booth.

Your move, Eli.
