GET OUT OF DAVID CARUSO'S CAR!!!
9/6/2013 3:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ashley Tisdale is no David Caruso ... which is exactly why she was KICKED OUT of his SUV at LAX yesterday!!!!
The video is pretty good ... Ashley and her entourage arrived to LAX and got into the first black SUV they saw, thinking it was waiting there for them.
Problem is ... there was another actor being picked up from the airport ... a magnificent ginger who starred in such TV classics as "CSI: Miami" and "NYPD Blue" ... DAVID CARUSO!!
They got the boot ... eventually found their car (a smaller black towncar) ... and cleared the way for Caruso to be driven home in the manner he deserves.
YOU DON'T MESS WITH HORATIO'S RIDE!!
Former '90210' Star
Divorce Final from
Nicest DUI Arrestee Ever
3/18/2013 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Former "90210" star Vanessa Marcil is officially a free woman ... because her divorce from "CSI:NY" actor Carmine Giovinazzo (aka the nicest DUI arrestee of all time) has been finalized.
TMZ broke the story ... Marcil filed for divorce from Giovinazzo last summer, citing "irreconcilable differences." They were married in 2010 and have no children together.
As for the division of assets ... Vanessa gets the 2009 Chevy Silverado, their L.A. property, a bunch of bank accounts ... as well as all rights to her baby clothes company called Baby Gagoo.
Carmine gets the mother lode -- a 2002 Mercedes CLK, his 2006 Harley, his 2010 Triumph motorcycle, the 1969 Pontiac GTO, 2009 Ducati, 2011 Chevy Camaro ... plus a bunch of bank accounts and other boring stuff.
It's been a rough couple months for Carmine, who was arrested for DUI in January in Scottsdale, AZ. You'll recall, AZ cops say the actor was one of the nicest people they've ever arrested, apologizing constantly and saying he didn't want to be an "a**hole." He even thanked the arresting officers profusely for being so nice to him.
According to police, Carmine's blood alcohol level registered at .149 after his arrest ... nearly twice the legal limit in AZ.
He has since been ordered to complete an alcohol program ... but hey, at least the divorce is behind him.

"CSI: NY" star Carmine Giovinazzo -- who plays Det. Danny Messer on the show -- has pled guilty in his Arizona DUI case -- but chances are he won't spend a single day behind bars ... TMZ has learned.
We broke the story ... Carmine was arrested in Scottsdale on Jan. 21 at 2:40 AM after cops say he was drunkenly swerving all over the road in a Jeep Wrangler.
Now, we've learned ... the 39-year-old actor struck a deal with prosecutors in which he agreed to enter a guilty plea ... and in exchange he was ordered to complete an alcohol training program by May 3.
There is one catch -- if Carmine fails to complete the program by the deadline, he'll have to spend 10 days in jail ... but c'mon, who would possibly screw up that deal???
Stay tuned ...

Nicest DUI Arrest Ever
1/30/2013 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Carmine Giovinazzo -- who plays Detective Danny Messer on "CSI: NY" -- was busted for DUI in Scottsdale, AZ last week ... and cops say he couldn't have been a nicer guy during the arrest.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, cops located 39-year-old Carmine swerving all over all the road around 2:40 AM on Monday January 21.
When cops approached the vehicle, Carmine was reportedly "immediately apologetic and told [officers] he had been driving erratic because he was lost and using the GPS."
According to the report, Carmine -- who had two passengers in the white Jeep Wrangler he was driving -- explained he was not from AZ.
Cops say Carmine stank of booze, had bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech. When asked if he had been drinking, cops say the actor fessed up to having scotch at the W Hotel.
Carmine was eventually arrested for DUI. The arresting officer says Carmine "repeatedly apologized to me and told me he didn't want to be an 'a**hole.'"
The cop added, "[Carmine] thanked me many times for not treating him like a criminal and showing him respect."
Cops say Carmine's blood alcohol level registered at .149 -- almost twice the legal limit in AZ.
We reached out to Carmine for comment -- so far, no word back.
Getting Killed Off 'CSI'
Left My Finances DOA
1/12/2013 5:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Former "CSI" star Gary Dourdan has a really great excuse for filing for bankruptcy -- his residual checks from the show just ain't what they used to be ... this according to legal docs.
Gary filed new docs this week in his ongoing Chapter 11 case. It's all part of the bankruptcy process, where he explains how he got into this dire financial situation -- i.e. being in the hole to creditors a cool $1.73 million.
Here are a few highlights:
-- Gary says he went broke all thanks to "diminished payment of residuals" from "CSI."
-- The "CSI" checks drying up also caused him to default on his two mortgages.
-- His current goal is to rebuild his his career (and his bank account) with "pending involvement as an actor in two movie productions." That's it.
Lesson Learned: Don't get killed off of a top rated TV show.
CSI Creator Anthony Zuiker
So He Can Remarry
12/26/2012 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker is officially divorced, even though he and his ex haven't settled their money issues. Thing is ... he needs the divorce STAT so he can get married again.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Zuiker fast-tracked the nasty divorce in order to marry Michelle Territo, the preschool teacher he's been dating for a year. We're told they may tie the knot next month.
We know Anthony, who's repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, and ex-wife Jennifer have been in a battle royale over money, and there's a lot of it ... "CSI" has generated more than $6 BILLION.
As we reported, Anthony and Jennifer were married in 1999 with NO pre-nup. Our sources say Jennifer, who is repped by Sorrell Trope, will make out like a bandit.
I'd STILL Work with Bieber
... Despite His Bratty Cameo
8/7/2012 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"CSI" star Marg Helgenberger would be HONORED to work with Justin Bieber again -- despite what she said last year ... that the singer was an intolerable "brat" behind the scenes of her TV show.
In case you didn't know, Bieber acted in one of the greatest episodes of "CSI" history -- a cameo that culminated in his character getting shot up in a comically excessive hail of gunfire.
But Helgenberger wasn't his biggest fan -- telling a French radio station shortly after the episode aired ... Bieber "was kind of a brat" on set, locking a producer in a closet and even punching a cake.
Now, Helgenberger appears to have had a change of heart. The other night in L.A., we asked if she'd ever like to work with Bieber again ... and she replied with an enthusiastic "OF COURSE!"
If it's anything like the "CSI" cameo, we're in too.
'CSI' NAAASTY Divorce
My Husband's Still Stiffing Me!
3/7/2012 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The wife of "CSI" creator Anthony Zuiker claims her estranged hubby is hoarding money from the show ... and she wants to make something else clear -- she's not the only one who lets her kids shoot rifles!
Jennifer Zuiker is responding in legal docs to Anthony's claim that she's the poster child for greed, asking for spousal support when she rakes in nearly half a mil a month -- and that's net!
But in new legal docs Jennifer claims she's getting zilch and hasn't gotten any "CSI" profits since separating from Anthony.
As for the whole gun thing ... Anthony claimed Jennifer is a bad mom, and his arsenal of evidence includes a trip to the desert with her 11-year-old son where she let him shoot TV sets with a rifle.
Jennifer now says she told Anthony in advance she was going to take the boy to the desert to shoot and he didn't object. Further, she says 2 of her boys have been shooting with family members for years (see pic below -- it's unclear if it's a real gun or a BB gun).
The divorce case has gotten ridiculously ugly. In fact, they're in court this AM because Jennifer is asking the judge to make Anthony give her $3 million toward the purchase of a home in Hidden Hills valued at more than $6 mil.
'CSI' Creator's Wife
What, ... Me Live
On $443,000 a Month?!?
3/2/2012 11:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The wife of the creator of "CSI" is in terrible financial straits ... forced to live on a meager $443,528 a month, and is demanding spousal and child support.
Anthony Zuiker has filed new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in response to Jennifer's demand for support, in which he scoffs at her claims, noting that she told the court she ONLY needs $158,000 a month to live, and her monthly cut from the show exceeds that amount by a whopping $285,000.
And get this ... the couple raked in more than $74 million in "CSI" profits since 2008. Their average yearly income is more than $17.8 mil.
One final thing. In the legal docs, Anthony is objecting to the renewal of their youngest son's passport, on grounds it's dangerous for him to travel with Jennifer. According to the docs, Jennifer exhibited "shockingly poor judgment" during her travels with their 3 kids, allegedly leaving them alone with the nanny for days while traveling in Europe.
But the best "poor judgment" allegation ... Anthony claims Jennifer encouraged and allowed the 11-year-old boy to shoot a "real hand gun" at televisions she and her friends had dragged into the Nevada desert.

My Hubby Makes a FORTUNE
And I Get NOTHING
2/7/2012 2:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The guy who created the "CSI" shows is raking in $25k per episode for EACH of the three series on the air ... this according to his estranged wife who claims she can't figure out why he deserves to keep getting paid ... and even worse, she says she's been totally cut off.
Jennifer Zuiker just filed new legal docs in her divorce from Anthony Zuiker ... in which she claims Anthony hasn't given her a dime in child and spousal support since she called off the marriage last April.
According to the docs, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Jennifer is demanding $1,000,000 to pay her lawyers and accountants while they work out a long term financial arrangement. Plus she wants a judge to sign off on an order that would force Anthony to shell out $54,282 in monthly support. After all, Jennifer claims she spends $158,827 in monthly expenses including:
-- personal living expenses ............$91,882
-- children's personal expenses ... $5,236
-- costs related to houses .............. $61,710
In an effort to convince the judge that Anthony can afford it ... Jennifer spells out his yearly income -- an estimated $1.6 MILLION ... and that's JUST from the "CSI" franchise.
Jennifer notes in the docs, "It has not been determined what, if anything, [Anthony] is doing to earn those funds."
Jennifer claims Anthony is also banking a bunch of cash from a new show he's developing for ABC called "Chameleon" ... plus, she believes he's also getting paid for various speaking engagements.
However, in the docs, Jennifer admits the kids spend 40% of the time with Anthony ... and sources connected to the couple say its actually more than that.
A hearing is set for March. Stay tuned ...
'CSI' Star to Cop:
Hey, Didn't You Bust Me??
11/5/2011 1:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Eads stared a cop right in the face on the set of "CSI" last month ... desperately trying to figure out why the guy looked so damn familiar ... then it hit him -- he BUSTED him two years ago!!!
Sources tell TMZ ... George was pulled over for speeding in L.A. roughly two years ago ... going faster than 80 mph. Eads got himself a ticket ... but he never forgot the face of the cop who took him down.
Fast forward to October -- when that same cop was on the set in uniform -- handling security for the show. We're told the two men approached each other ... and realized they had history.
But this story has a happy ending -- the guys both laughed it off ... but George made sure to check his speed on the way home that day.
CSI Creator's Wife
You Cancelled My Black Card!
10/23/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The estranged wife of the creator of the "CSI" shows -- who is embroiled in an epic divorce -- has learned a truism first hand ... once you go black, you can never go back.
Jennifer Zuiker claims hubby Anthony Zuiker shut down her American Express Black Card. For those of you who aren't acquainted, it's something you will never have in your lifetime.
In the divorce docs obtained by TMZ ... Jennifer claims she had been regularly charging $40,000 - $60,000 per month on the Black Card, and now she's SOL -- left with a MasterCard with a measly $25k limit. FYI, with a Black Card, there's no limit, but cardholders must spend a minimum of $250,000 a year. That's not a typo.
But Anthony says, though his lawyer, disso-queen Laura Wasser, "Petitioner's concern is that she will no longer have a black Centurion Card to use because it is a status symbol." Priceless.
And it only gets better. Jennifer wanted Anthony to foot the $181,381 bill for the Alexander McQueen clothing bill he refused to pay for more than a year. It was the Fall, 2010 collection ... stupid.
It appears from court docs the parties have now settled this beef, but the divorce is still bitter and ongoing.
Rich people's problems. Very, very rich.
