Master P Biopic Director Saves Wheelchair-Bound Man From Burning House

4/26/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Production on Master P's biopic indirectly saved the life an elderly man when a house went up in flames.

The movie's director, Jeff Reyes, tells us he was scouting shoot locations in New Orleans a couple weeks ago when he and his cinematographer came upon the burning building. He says they asked if anyone needed help, and were told a wheelchair-bound man was trapped inside.

Reyes, who was in the Army, says they covered themselves to fight off the smoke, and then rushed inside to find the guy. They lifted him out of his chair and carried him to safety outside. Much of the rescue was recorded by a witness.

The title of the Master P flick is "King of the South." At least one NOLA resident would say that applies to Reyes too.

Caitlyn Jenner created a super awkward moment when she asked John Leguizamo if he enjoyed dressing up like a woman.

Caitlyn was a guest on 'Live' with Kelly Ripa, and John was her guest co-host. CJ made a callback to John's classic role in "Too Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar" ... where he played a drag queen.

He was brutally honest about the experience. Kelly seemed to squirm. Caitlyn's reaction -- you should see what I've gone through!

Pretty sure it's not a competition, but Caitlyn's right about one thing: John did slay in 'Wong Foo' ...

EXCLUSIVE

Oprah Winfrey loved gabbing with us about her super fab yacht vacay, but took a code of silence when it came to saying 2 names ... Barack and Michelle Obama.

We got O in D.C. Wednesday night, and asked her about her Tahiti trip with, not only the ex-POTUS and FLOTUS, but Tom Hanks and Bruce Springsteen. She gushed about the yacht itself, she's a frequent floater, and explained how they all ended up there together.

But watch what happens when she runs down the guest list. Interesting, especially because we've all seen pics of the Obamas on deck.

C'mon, O! Who are we gonna tell?
