Carrie Fisher 911 Call Pilot Speeds Up for LAX Landing

1/5/2017 7:43 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Carrie Fisher's in-flight medical emergency had United Airlines scrambling even before the plane landed -- the pilot even throttled up to get to L.A. faster --  this according to a 911 call.

United Airlines Operations called 911 and said the flight was 10 minutes from landing in L.A. and someone was in distress.

TMZ broke the story, Carrie's heart stopped beating and passengers with CPR training revived her, although she didn't even have a pulse for 10 minutes. Carrie never regained consciousness and died days after at UCLA Medical Center.

You hear the desperation in the 911 call. It appears the pilot accelerated to land even sooner than scheduled.

EXCLUSIVE

Paramedics raced to save Debbie Reynolds after she suffered a stroke ... according to the 911 call.

You hear the dispatcher tell the nurse to perform CPR, but then the call disconnects.

Miles Teller Car Crash 911 ... Anyone Ejected from Vehicles?

1/5/2017 8:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Moments after Miles Teller's truck was flipped in a crash, a woman on the scene -- possibly his girlfriend -- called 911 and described the horrific scene.

The operator is, understandably, concerned about victims being ejected from the vehicles involved in the wreck.

TMZ broke the story ... Miles' Bronco flipped on its side on the evening of Dec. 22 ... after an Uber driver cut him off on a wet road in the San Fernando Valley 

The only silver lining -- the operator points out they wrecked right near a fire station.

As we reported -- 2 passengers in the Uber were hospitalized with minor injuries. The accident was NOT Miles' fault.

Justin Bieber Gives Away Another Dog New Owner Paying Hefty Price

1/4/2017 2:10 PM PST
Exclusive Details

0104-bieber-and-dog-tmz-instagramJustin Bieber's already done with the puppy he got less than 6 months ago -- one of his dancers adopted it, but is now stuck with the bill for a very expensive surgery.

C.J. Salvador tells TMZ he and his parents got Bieber's 7-month-old chow, named Todd, when Justin decided -- once again -- he couldn't care for it due to his work schedule.

Remember, Justin's previously ditched a hamster, a monkey and another dog ... so it's a disturbing pattern -- and this time there's a costly twist.

C.J. says during a recent checkup they found out Todd was born with severe hip dysplasia, and vets say it's likely he won't be able to walk by age 1. He says the only hope is a corrective surgery which will cost about $8,000.  

0104_justin_bieber_todd_the_dog_instagram-swipeWith the help of 90 donors -- including Jaden Smith -- C.J. has raised more than the $8k. Interestingly, Bieber has NOT donated.

C.J. says Justin didn't know about the defect, nor did he tell him about it. He says he didn't want to bother JB because Todd isn't his responsibility anymore.

It's true. 3 words you don't associate with Justin Bieber: responsible pet owner.

'This is Us' Star Chrissy Metz Gastric Bypass Didn't Sideline Me It's a Bum Knee

1/4/2017 9:07 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"This Is Us" star Chrissy Metz needed a wheelchair for a bum knee ... NOT because she underwent gastric bypass surgery.

Chrissy was in a wheelchair Tuesday at LAX ... because she hurt her knee in Florida during Xmas. She has some lingering pain but should be at full strength in a few days.

The wheelchair suggested she might've actually gone through with the surgery ... after her character, Kate Pearson, vowed in the last episode to have gastric bypass. Her people tell us she absolutely did not have gastric bypass.  

Chrissy's people tell us the bum knee shouldn't impact shooting the show, or this weekend's Golden Globes, where she's nominated for Best Supporting Actress.

EXCLUSIVE

Good news, Raider Nation -- broken leg expert Joe Theismann says he's 100% confident Derek Carr can rebound from his fractured fibula ... he knows from experience. 

We got the Super Bowl champ out in NYC earlier Tuesday where he told us he was brokenhearted for the Raiders QB ... and knows firsthand what it's like to recover from that same exact injury. 

Yeah, turns out Thiesmann broke his leg more than a decade BEFORE that infamous run in with Lawrence Taylor in 1985 (that gruesome compound fracture on MNF)  ... the one that ended his career. 

Theismann says he broke his fibula in 1972 while he was in the Canadian Football League -- but recovered and went on to have a pretty solid career with the Washington Redskins. 

As for the Raiders, Joe says he's a fan ... and explains why they might not be as dead in the playoffs as everyone thinks they are.

Rob Kardashian Blanketed with Same Good Luck Charm as Lamar

12/31/2016 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1229-rob-kardashian-chyna-blanket-akm-03Rob Kardashian's hospital visit had a flash of Lamar Odom's near-death ER trip ... based on a revealing pattern.

Kris Jenner and Corey Gamble showed up at the West Hills Medical Center Wednesday night with a leopard print blanket in tow ... and it looked familiar.

You'll recall in October 2015, Lamar was wheeled in a gurney wrapped in the same patterned blanket ... which Khloe called a good luck charm that she believes helped save her ex-hubby's life.

We're told the blanket Kris brought to the ER wasn't Lamar's, but it was identical. Almost everyone in the family has one. 

TMZ broke the story ... Rob checked himself into the ER after his rocky relationship with Chyna led to some pronounced weight gains and serious diabetes flare-ups. 

Luckily for Rob, like Lamar, he made it out of the hospital.

Breaking News

1229-dakota-ball-al-01University of Alabama defensive lineman Dakota Ball won't be playing in the Peach Bowl on Saturday ... because he's recovering from SHOOTING OFF HIS FINGER with a shotgun. 

Ball -- whose left hand was wrapped up at a Peace Bowl Media Day event on Thursday -- explained the accident occurred 2 weeks ago during a hunting trip with a friend.

"I shot my finger off with a 12-gauge shotgun," Ball told AL.com.

"I was tying a rope around the barrel and around the stock to keep the shotgun from falling out of my lap ... I was tying rope around the barrel and it just went off. I didn't have my hand on the trigger."

"I shot it right at the knuckle and blew it off."

Ball was hospitalized and released the next day. 

The story comes in the wake of Philadelphia Eagles star QB Carson Wentz getting shotguns for his offensive linemen. 

Maybe a giftcard next year?
