'Mob Wives' Natalie Guercio

My BF's Lucky to Be Alive

Gory Pics Prove It

12/31/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Mob Wives Stabbing"Mob Wives" star Natalie Guercio says she knows why her boyfriend got knifed -- and she wants to show how brutal the nightclub attack was ... by revealing his horrific wounds.

TMZ broke the story ... London Rene was repeatedly sliced in the face, abdomen and arm in a Brooklyn nightclub. Rodolfy "Rudy" Lopez was arrested Tuesday for the crime.

Natalie tells us she and London met Lopez through mutual friends, but things went south about 8 months ago. She claims Lopez began threatening London and accusing him of spreading rumors that Lopez was a FBI snitch. Clearly a no-no in the mob world.

London's wounds are extremely graphic, but it's easy to see -- just a few inches lower and he could be dead.

Lopez was booked for felony assault and possession of a deadly weapon.

NFL's Brandon Marshall

I'VE BEEN GROUNDED

... Over Collapsed Lung

EXCLUSIVE

Brandon Marshall Collapsed Lung

Chicago Bears superstar Brandon Marshall says he's on a 4-week timeout from flying -- and can't get on a plane to NYC for a deposition in his assault case ... all because of his collapsed lung. 

TMZ Sports has learned ... the wide receiver was scheduled to appear for the depo on December 9th to defend himself against allegations he punched a woman in the face outside of a nightclub back in 2012. 

But in court docs obtained by TMZ Sports, Marshall claims there's no way in hell he could've made it to the deposition because doctors have put him on a "no-fly restriction" due to injuries he suffered during a Thursday Night Football game on Dec. 4th. 

According to docs submitted in the case ... the WR's overall condition is "good" and doctors had planned to reevaluate the NFL star toward the end of December. 

We did a little digging ... and according to the British Lung Foundation, the reduced cabin pressure in planes makes it more difficult to breathe. 

For his part, Marshall has denied any wrongdoing -- and has said his wife was the real victim during the night of the incident ... claiming she was hit with a bottle while leaving the club after a scuffle had broken out.

We fired off a simple question to Suge, Sunday night at Mastro's -- "Got any New Year's resolutions?" -- but his reply sounded like he was checking off a revenge list. 

The former head of Death Row Records also said he supports Lil Wayne in his battle with Cash Money ... then seemed to make an unprompted, and puzzling, threat toward Drake
 
Suge's 2015 sounds a lot like his 2014 ... and '13 ... and '12 ... and ...

Kim Kardashian

I'm Upset ...

Because I Can't Get Pregnant

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian Pregnancy Problems
Kim Kardashian is upset for a very good reason ... as hard as she's been trying, she can't get pregnant.

Kim has been very open with friends and family ... she and Kanye have been trying to have another baby for the last 9 months but nothing has worked. Kim has been to fertility doctors, but they've made it clear ... having another baby is a long shot.

Turns out North West was a miracle baby ... she had 3 specialists tell her she couldn't get pregnant before North was conceived.  

Kim and Kanye assumed the second baby would be easier since it worked once, but the doctors are telling her that's not the case.

We're told Kim is trying to reduce her stress and cut down on traveling ... per doctor's advice.

The pic was taken Tuesday in Bev Hills after visiting her doctor. We're told Kanye has been to almost every doctor's visit ... Kim goes once a month.

Amanda Bynes

Stable, Lucid and Off Meds

EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes Mental Health
Amanda Bynes is OUT of her manic state ... acting completely "normal" and her family thinks it's nothing short of "mind blowing."

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Amanda is off all meds, including Adderall, which caused her to get a DUI

When you speak with Amanda there is no way you would know she's been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolarity. She is completely lucid. 

We're told things have stabilized so much, her parents have given her limited access again to bank accounts. She spends her time reading, doing yoga, meditation and pilates ... all stress reducers which doctors say are important for these mental disorders.

We're also told Amanda's recent trip to USC -- where she'd like to enroll as a psych major -- was all planned by her.

Here's the rub. Doctors have told Amanda's family, people with such mental illnesses sometimes rebound and they can be ok for months, only to relapse again.

The family believes during these stable periods, the best thing is to give Amanda enough freedom to enjoy it.

1223-hayden-panettier-pregnant-bikini-splash-01Hayden Panettiere can't escape the laws of physics -- birthing Wladimir Klitschko's baby did some permanent damage to her bod.

Hayden copped to the ordeal of bringing Kaya Evdokia into this world with People ... saying, "I'm limping around. I'm still trying to figure out what [pregnancy] has done to my body, how it's changed it."

As for recovery ... she added, "I know some things will never be the same again."

Sounds about right -- Kaya was 7 lbs., 14 oz. and damn near 2 feet tall. Hayden's only 5 feet tall.

Like we said ... physics.

Say Anything Lead Singer

Pukes On Stage

On Unluckiest Security Guard Ever

12/23/2014 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


The Lead singer of Say Anything hurled on stage Monday night ... soaking a security guard in vomit.

Lead singer Max Bemis was towards the end of the set at the House of Blues in West Hollywood when he projectile vomited without warning. It's unclear why ... but there was alcohol on stage so it ain't that hard to read between the lines.

Bemis didn't miss a beat, and continued singing "I Want to Know Your Plans." As for the security guard ... well it definitely ruined his night.

Sometimes being close to the stage is overrated.

EXCLUSIVE

Dolly Parton Dollywood Sued

A Tennessee couple says they came to Dolly Parton's Dollywood for entertainment -- what they got was a traumatizing experience that left one of them with lasting brain damage and broken bones.

Tedi and Derryl Brown claim in a new lawsuit ... Tedi went on the Waltzing Swinger ride, which is like a giant, revolving swing.  She says she hung on for dear life after slipping from her seat and falling head first onto the hard concrete, 10-ft. below.

They say the park ignored the wet weather ... and the slick conditions turned the ride into a death trap -- resulting in Tedi's extensive, life-changing injuries.

They're demanding the park pay $475K in damages.

Richard Simmons

Where is He?

EXCLUSIVE

Richard Simmons Missing
Richard Simmons
is still MIA ... nearly a year after he was last seen, and there are no signs of XMAS or even life at his home.

His friends are more worried than ever. They haven't heard from or seen him since January 11. He hasn't been to his exercise studio in 6 months. 

There are no XMAS decorations at his Hollywood Hills house. Friends are not allowed to visit. A housekeeper seems to stand guard whenever anyone tries to enter.

Simmons' rep told us the exercise guru was depressed over a knee injury and that's why he has gone radio silent, but his friends are convinced it is far more serious. They say Richard was the ultimate caring person who loved interaction, and now there is none whatsoever.
