Rob Lowe Fights Wildfire, Feeds Firefighters

12/18/2017 7:48 AM PST

Rob Lowe took matters into his own hands as a wildfire crept toward his Santa Barbara home -- by helping firefighters battle the flames, and then fueling them up.

Rob's home was spared even though it looked like the blaze was knocking at his front door early Sunday morning. The Thomas Fire's been raging for 2 weeks now and has made its way to Santa Barbara where Rob, Oprah, Ellen and Katy Perry's folks have had to evacuate their homes.

To show his gratitude for saving his community, Rob later invited the fire crew over for dinner to the home they saved, where they recharged on spaghetti and burgers.

No stopping for these guys as the fire's only 45 percent contained. So far, Rob's been spared, but 18,000 structures are still in danger.

12/4/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Master P is going back to slangin' cell phones for the big screen -- but this time he wants a bunch of nobodys to join him.

P tells us he's working on the sequel to his 1998 movie, "I Got the Hook-Up" ... only now, he'll be looking to cast some unknown talent to star in it.

We're told P plans to reprise his role, except with all the technology updates since '98. It's also gonna star some big names, including his son, Romeo, who's co-producing the flick with his pops. Here's the catch ... P's hosting an open casting call on social media to find an unknown actor to fill a big role, plus smaller ones too. 

P says he believes there's a lot of potential in social media standouts, and wants to give these folks their big break. And, of course, he wants any followers they can bring along.

One last thing -- the first 'Hook-Up' was distributed by Dimension, which is owned by Bob Weinstein. P says he hasn't decided on a distributor yet, but Dimension won't be 1 of 'em.

11/29/2017 8:57 AM PST

Katy Perry didn't need to hear Warren Buffett's roar ... a whisper did just fine.

Katy met Warren at his famous Berkshire Hathaway office in Nebraska. She definitely fangirl'd out, which totally makes sense. Tons of celebs make the pilgrimage to visit the Oracle of Omaha 'cause who doesn't want to meet the billionaire of billionaires?

The video's awesome ... we learn the secret to the Coke machine at Warren's office, and Katy couldn't resist doing what everyone does when they get an audience with Warren.

11/27/2017 12:45 PM PST

Fergie might not be joining FOX's new singing competition 'The Four' as a judge, but she'll still get plenty of face time because she's signed on to host.

Fergie announced the news via social media Monday.

The show is supposed to have a hip-hop influence, so Fergie should fit right in, given her time with the Black Eyed Peas. 

'The Four' premieres on FOX in January.

EXCLUSIVE

Casper Smart's got a type -- they've gotta be smart, talented and, of course, booty-full.

Casper has been dating 30-year-old Paige Hathaway for the last couple of months. She's a fitness model/entrepreneur who's not only drop dead gorgeous, but also has a bod that rivals Casper's ex, Jennifer Lopez

Casper and J Lo called it quits in August 2016 after several years of dating, but clearly there was no need for pity tears.

Casper and Paige -- the creator of Fitin5 Challenge with 4 million Instagram followers -- just flew to Miami together for one of his events where she was his plus one. They boarded Dave Grutman’s boat where we're pretty sure they had all sorts of fun.

Lucky bastard. 

Kendra Wilkinson Throws 'I Picked Cotton' Party!!! What Slavery?

11/22/2017 2:16 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Kendra Wilkinson ain't just deep in the heart of Texas, she's knee-deep in controversy after reveling in the joy -- as she sees it -- of picking cotton.

Kendra knocked off an odd bucket list item Wednesday when she pulled over -- mid-road trip with her husband, Hank Baskett -- to wander into a random field and pick a cotton bulb clean.

Kendra joked she might get shot for trespassing -- a legit concern, to be honest -- but the tone deaf move came when she loudly celebrated, and posted it on social media. Perhaps a little too giddy for something so connected to slavery?

Kendra's rep tells TMZ she didn't intend to offend, and she's sorry if anyone took it the wrong way. As for anyone claiming she's racist -- the rep pointed out Hank is black.

Breaking News

Cam Newton says he thought his life and his career were OVER when he was arrested for stealing a student's laptop computer in 2008 ... but now he wants people to learn from his mistakes. 

It was this exact date in 2008 that Newton was busted at the University of Florida (when he was Tim Tebow's backup). He was charged with felony counts of burglary, larceny and obstructing justice. 

Newton struck a plea deal and all charges were dropped after he completed a pretrial diversion program. 

But now, 9 years later ... the NFL star is opening up about the arrest and how it affected his life. 

"I contemplated posting this and even reluctant about it, but as I think about my life and the MANY things I'm THANKFUL for, I tant to be an OPEN book so people can here my testimony and learn from the FLAWS and mistakes I MADE!"

"On this day 11/21/2008 I was arrested for a stolen laptop and I'm sure your asking yourself where is he going with this story."

"The moral of the story is this ... on this date I THOUGHT my life and my career was OVER and the fact that I had shamed my family with the media coverage surrounding this situation I vowed to myself on this day (9 years ago) that 'I will be BETTER from this situation'."

"What you must learn from this story is this: If you live your life listening to what OTHER people are saying what you should do AND NOT YOUR OWN, shame on YOU!"

"I can honestly say to you today that NO one gave me a chance to succeed down bad in my situation and if I would have listened to those people that said i CAN'T, WHO KNOWS where I would be today. So i'm EXTREMELY THANKFUL FOR GOD's mercy, grace and FAVOR over my L1FE; so if I can do it with my circumstances surely you can do it and be WHATEVER YOU WANT TO BE with HARD WORK and PERSISTENCE!"

XXXTentacion Sorry, Migos ... Turns Out You Didn't Jump Me!

11/15/2017 8:46 AM PST

XXXTentacion posted surveillance video of the alleged Migos jumping, and immediately had to apologize to them ... 'cause it turns out it wasn't them who attacked him.

X posted the security footage Tuesday, as well as a pic of the 2 guys who actually appeared to jump him. Neither of the guys are Migos members. 

As we reported, X initially thought one of the attackers was Takeoff, and blasted him on social media. He also posted a pic of Offset's fiancee, Cardi B.

For the record, the 2 alleged assailants were rockin' "Migo Gang" pendants -- but it's unclear if they have any real connection with the rappers.

X said to Takeoff, in an IG comment, ''From the Bottom of my heart I apologize to you, you only caught in the cross fire of your blood line, blessings."

The singer and the soccer superstar went for a dinner date in London on Tuesday -- after Neymar played for Team Brazil in an international friendly against England. 

Oh, there was a 3rd person at the dinner as well ... smokin' hot TV host Layla Anna-Lee

But despite the fact Neymar and Demi look GREAT together, the soccer stud is preemptively striking against dating rumors ... posting Instagram photos with the caption, "My friends girls."

BOOOOO!!!!

Neymar's probably not Demi's type anyway. She's into fighters

XXXTentacion Alleged Migos Jumping Aftermath ... Drags Cardi B Into It

11/13/2017 6:04 PM PST

 

XXXTentacion says he got jumped by Migos in L.A. -- and even posted video of what appears to be one of its members walking away from the fight ... plus Cardi B's photo.

X went on an Instagram rant Monday claiming he'd just been jumped by the rap trio, adding they allegedly pulled a gun on him during the scuffle.

He then deleted almost every post from his IG page and left only 2 -- a video of what he claims is Takeoff walking away from the brawl ... and a pic of Offset's fiance, Cardi. He later deleted both posts.

Unclear what set off the alleged jumping, but whatever the beef is ... it's probably only going to get worse now that X got Cardi involved.

11/3/2017 4:13 PM PDT

Beyonce was Lil' Kim for Halloween but she didn't just have one costume in her closet ... she had 5! 

Bey shared the looks on her Instagram Friday, a few days post-Halloween, and it's impressive.

There's 1997 Lil' Kim in a fluorescent fur from her "No Way Out" tour, and Lil' Kim's signature blue Chanel wig from her Manhattan File Magazine cover, plus the costume Bey was pictured in at a Halloween party where she went as Kim from Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" video.

Noticeably missing, though, was Lil' Kim's 1999 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet look, but the admiration is real.

No word of a collab ... yet.
