'Commish' Star Theresa Saldana Dead at 61

EXCLUSIVE

0607_remembering_theresa_saldana_launchActress Theresa Saldana who played the commissioner's wife on '90s cop drama "The Commish" and was the victim in a highly-publicized stabbing has died ... TMZ has learned. 

Saldana had been hospitalized with an unknown illness and died Monday at Cedars-Sinai ... according to a member of her family. 

The actress made headlines in 1982 after being stabbed by a deranged fan outside her L.A. home. A delivery man who happened to be driving by saw her and came to her rescue, and she was able to survive the attack.

Saldana also famously starred alongside Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci in "Raging Bull." 

She stopped acting in 2004.

She was 61.

EXCLUSIVE

Anna Faith Carlson, the smoking hot model who bares a strong resemblance to Elsa from "Frozen", was put in a trance ... and it was so hot Olaf would melt.

Anna was at the MegaCon comic book convention in Orlando last week when she and her friend were hypnotized in front of an audience.

The hypnotist had Elsa stick out her tongue and ride a horse ... pretty tame by hypnotist standards.

We're guessing she just let it go.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC star Michael Bisping says the producers of of Vin Diesel's new "XXX" movie actually lucked out when Conor McGregor dropped out ... cause they got him instead, and he's a real deal thespian.

We got Bisping out in L.A. and asked him about filling in for Conor on the new flick, which McGregor was slated to star in but then dropped out of.

Bisping makes it clear to us ... he's no replacement ... saying a whole new part was written for the movie and he had to audition to get it.

As far as talking about McGregor's acting abilities ... Michael says there's not much to talk about -- saying Conor's never even done it before ... while he has over ten credits on the all-important IMDB.

We looked it up ... he ain't lying.

Anthony Hopkins, watch out.

Amber Heard is not going through with her promise to belatedly file a police report ... because she says she still loves Johnny Depp and "doesn't want to bury him" ... so say sources connected with Amber.

As we reported, Amber's lawyer, Samantha Spector, vowed Tuesday Amber would file a police report because she was being trashed in the media, thanks to Johnny and his team.

We're told Amber has now had a change of heart, saying she believes a police report would trigger an arrest and prosecution, and she doesn't want to set the wheels in motion for People vs. Depp.

Sources connected with Johnny scoff at Amber's sympathy, saying she timed the allegations to hurt his new movie, "Alice Through the Looking Glass," which tanked.

Heard claims she still loves the man she now says repeatedly brutalized her.

Exclusive Details

Royalty's 2nd birthday party was truly fit for a baller princess.

Chris Brown and Nia Guzman's little one got the "Frozen" treatment Sunday. Royalty even made a grand entrance on a pony and chilled with Elsa, Anna and Olaf ... all with fake snow coming down.

We're told the sugary goodies alone -- including a customized 3-tier castle cake with rhinestone towers -- cost Royalty's parents a cool $10k at Sweet Serenity Desserts.

Chris couldn't attend, since he's on tour, but bragged about dropping $30k on the whole shindig. Apparently llamas and mini horses don't come cheap.

EXCLUSIVE

0531_Justin-Martin_gettyJustin Martin -- who co-starred with Zac Efron in 'High School Musical 3' -- will be locked up for 18 months after pleading guilty to 5 gun charges ... TMZ has learned.

The Suffolk County D.A.'s office tells us Martin appeared in court Tuesday for sentencing. In addition to the jail time ... he also got one year probation, during which he has to lay off drugs and booze and stay away from the scene of the crime.

As we reported back in July ... Martin ran away from cops in Boston and pointed a gun at officers before he was chased and captured. He pled guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon, illegal possession of a gun and ammunition, carrying a loaded gun and firing a gun near a building.

Justin tells TMZ, "I have matured a great deal in the past year and had to learn some hard lessons because of my actions."  He added, "I look forward to moving past this time in my life and getting back to my career."

Martin avoided a stiffer penalty -- the D.A. was gunning to lock him up for 3 years.

It's now official ... Mark Salling got booted from his starring villain role in "Adi Shankar’s Gods and Secrets" -- just days after his child porn indictment ... TMZ has learned.

We're told production will start re-shoots of Salling's scenes, and Shankar is personally footing the bill for it. We're told Shankar is going a step further ... donating a percentage of profits from the project to an abused children's charity.

The former "Glee" star was indicted last week on 2 counts of child porn. Shankar reacted quickly, saying ... "Child abuse is a cultural cancer whose tentacles penetrate far deeper than a single celebrity caught with illicit images on his computer."

We're told Salling's replacement has not been cast yet.

So, are we finally gazing at Jedi holy ground? It's possible ... then again, we can't really be sure. 

Whatever it is ... it's 'Star Wars' and it's awesome!
