Kim & Kanye Hire Private Firefighters ... Save Neighbors' Homes Too

11/12/2018 9:36 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are getting major props from their neighbors for staving off the devastating Woolsey wildfire ... with the help of their private team of firefighters.

TMZ broke the story, the blaze started to creep up on Kim and Kanye's Hidden Hills mansion Friday after a mandatory evacuation of the area. The couple's home sits at the end of a cul-de-sac and borders a field -- meaning if their place went up in flames, it would start a domino effect on the whole neighborhood. 

Sources tell us Kim and Kanye hired a private team to battle the flames on their property. The team was armed with hoses, and also tirelessly dug ditches to create a fire break.

Ultimately, they successfully saved the Wests' $60 million house... and countless others on the block. We spoke with a few neighbors who are thanking the Wests for putting a team on the front lines and saving their homes.

As we reported -- Kim posted video of the fires as she flew into L.A. Thursday -- the family stayed at a nearby hotel during the evacuations.

Tekashi69 Check Out My New Iced-Out Chompers

11/11/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

This might be the reason Tekashi69 keeps his cool with bullets flying around him almost constantly ... his mouth is full of ice! 

The rapper hit up celeb jeweler Johnny Dang for his newest pair ... and the chompers are off the chain. We're talking 18-karat white gold with 585 diamonds in a special honeycomb setting.

This smile on the rocks cost 6ix9ine a cool $45,000. 

They're Tekashi's first grills since he got veneers ... so he had to get a new molding made, and Johnny went the extra mile to ensure the rapper's mouth shines like the sun.

Johnny met Tekashi in Los Angeles Monday, traveled home to Houston and finished up the grills in less than 24 hours, and then flew back out to the West Coast Thursday for a special delivery. 

It's interesting ... Tekashi got the grills hours before his music video shoot with Kanye West and Nicki Minaj was halted by gunfire ... and, we're guessing the mouth full of ice helped Teskashi6ix9ine keep his cool under fire.

Sorry for saying that twice.

Annabella Sciorra Construction Co. Sued For Cementing Her Condo!

11/11/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Two construction companies that worked on 'Sopranos' star Annabella Sciorra's home are getting sued for allegedly causing more than $100k in damages.

Central Construction Management and B&Z Industries worked on Annabella's condo back in December 2015, and according to the lawsuit, they screwed up by allowing wet cement into her crib.

Annabella -- who also starred in "Jungle Fever" and "The Hand That Rocks the Cradle" -- filed a claim with her insurance company, Pacific Indemnity, and got $112,034.97 for the damages. Now Pacific Indemnity is trying to recoup that dough by suing the construction companies.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Pacific says it's pretty clear the blame lies squarely on the construction companies due to negligence and failure to provide reasonable protection. 

Annabella made headlines last year as one of Harvey Weinstein's most vocal accusers. Before that, she was probably best known as Tony Soprano's, ummm ... ill-fated mistress, Gloria. Spoiler alert!

The role scored Annabella an Emmy nomination.

EXCLUSIVE

Imagine finding out your estranged spouse put your house up for sale without telling you, and if not for a friend's phone call ... you'd never know it -- well that's exactly what happened to Danielle Staub

Sources tell TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star found out about the listing first thing Thursday morning when a friend called her. We're told Marty Caffrey, Danielle's estranged husband, is listing their NJ mansion for over $2 million.  

We're told Danielle started crying when she got the news. That's totally understandable because Danielle currently lives there with her youngest daughter! We're told she called Marty to hear it from the horse's mouth, and then called her lawyer to see if she can block the sale. 

Danielle and Marty are going through a messy divorce, but they've been sharing the mansion since the split. Yes, it's 7,500 square feet, but it's still uncomfortable. We're told Danielle feels like she has to close her doors.

The brick colonial was built in 1950 and boasts 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and 10-foot ceilings. Great buy for someone, but meanwhile ... Danielle's screwed. Her rep tells us, “This is yet another example of the blatant disrespect and emotional abuse she has endured in this relationship.”

Worth noting, Marty and Danielle only got married back in May. Now suddenly, the 'Real Housewife' is gonna be an ex-wife ... with NO house.

Ouch.

Billionaire Tom Steyer Dems Sent Trump a Message ... Courtesy My $120 Million!!!

11/7/2018 3:26 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Tom Steyer is reveling in the midterm election results after dumping $120 million into Democratic campaigns ... and he's not afraid to rub it in President Trump's face.

We got the billionaire philanthropist Wednesday in Washington D.C., and he was over the moon about Dems taking control of the House of Representatives. Steyer says it's a clear pushback against Trump's administration. 

Tom's PAC, NextGen Climate Action, helped flip 12 congressional seats for the Dems. 

It wasn't a total blue wave for Tom's wallet. The Cali native invested $14 mil in Andrew Gillum's gubernatorial campaign, and came up short.

He's clearly choosing to accentuate the positive.
