Breaking News

Senator John McCain got a standing O on Capitol Hill Tuesday as he returned to vote on a health care bill that would start the process of repealing Obamacare ... this after being diagnosed with brain cancer.

McCain flew into D.C. Tuesday just to vote on the controversial health bill -- which ended up passing with the help of his vote -- following his brain cancer diagnosis last week. As we reported ... he had a blood clot removed that tested positive for glioblastoma, and was resting from the procedure.

McCain put the vote for the bill at 50-50, meaning Vice President Mike Pence had to issue the tie-breaking vote ... and he pushed to move it forward.

Politics as usual on the Hill ... but everyone seems unanimous here in honoring McCain.

Kyara, the last orca born in captivity at SeaWorld, has died at just 3 months old.

The female killer whale died Monday at SeaWorld's San Antonio park from an infection, likely pneumonia. Trainers had been treating her over the weekend, but her condition continued to deteriorate.

The breeding program was 86'd after immense public pressure following the airing of the 2013 documentary, "Blackfish" ... which focused on the plight of Tilikum.

7/25/2017 6:53 AM PDT

In case you need a refresher on where Gigi and Bella Hadid get their model figures from, let this photo of their mom, Yolanda, serve as your refresher.

The former Dutch model was up for a sunrise swim in Lake Constance -- which borders Germany, Switzerland, and Austria -- and flaunted the incredible view. Double entendre fully intended.

Yolanda -- who is 53, by the way -- has famously battled Lyme disease, and says the ice cold morning swim helps with inflammation.

We're no doctors, but if it's working for her ... it's working for us.

Valentina Shevchenko Calls B.S. On Nunes' Sinusitis Story 'Maybe It Was Her Plan'

7/11/2017 9:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Valentina Shevchenko is callin' B.S. on the reason behind Amanda Nunes' UFC 213 title fight withdrawal ... telling TMZ Sports she's "not believing 100%" that Nunes pulled out over health issues.

We spoke with Bullet about Nunes pulling out due to chronic sinusitis ... and Shevchenko says she doesn't believe the excuse because Lioness seemed perfectly healthy the week leading up to the fight.

As for why Nunes would make up the claim, Shevchenko speculates the withdrawal happened because Nunes was "feeling (her) energy" and wanted to reschedule the fight to throw off her rhythm.

But V.S. says if it was Nunes' plan all along to bail, it didn't work ... 'cause she'll be ready whenever a makeup date is set.

'True Blood' Star Nelsan Ellis Alcohol Withdrawal Complications Led to Heart Failure

7/10/2017 11:03 AM PDT
Breaking News

Nelsan Ellis' heart failure was triggered by alcohol withdrawal complications.

The "True Blood" star's family said Nelsan -- who died Saturday -- struggled with drug and alcohol abuse for years and his latest attempt to withdraw from booze on his own led to his death.

The family said, "During his withdrawal from alcohol he had a blood infection, his kidneys shut down, his liver was swollen, his blood pressure plummeted, and his dear sweet heart raced out of control."

The family went on to say Nelsan "was ashamed of his addiction and thus was reluctant to talk about it during his life. His family, however, believes that in death he would want his life to serve as a cautionary tale in an attempt to help others."

Amanda Nunes I Have Sinusitis That's Why I Withdrew from UFC 213

7/9/2017 10:35 AM PDT
Breaking News

Amanda Nunes pulled out of her UFC 213 fight because she was dealing with a chronic condition that didn't allow her to breathe properly ... according to the brawler herself.

Amanda posted a statement Sunday explaining her sudden withdrawal from her main event fight against Valentina Shevchenko, saying she suffers from chronic sinusitis. 

She goes on to explain that she's fought with the condition before, but couldn't soldier on this time because she felt off balance and couldn't breathe at the official weigh-in. She also says UFC docs cleared her based on blood and dehydration tests ... but a CT scan later found mucus build-up in her sinuses. 

As we reported ... Amanda pulled out of UFC 213 last minute Saturday, only hours before her title match. She told UFC officials she did not feel well enough to step in the Octagon. 

Amanda has apologized for the cancellation and promises that the fight will be rescheduled.
