Alek Skarlatos

Busts His Nose

In 'DWTS' Rehearsal

10/12/2015 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The bad luck streak continues ... Alek Skarlatos -- one of the French terror train heroes -- just suffered a broken nose, courtesy of his "Dancing with the Stars" partner. 

Our 'DWTS' sources tell us Skarlatos and his partner Emma Slater were in rehearsals Monday morning when she accidentally hit him in the face with an elbow.

We're told medics are at the dance studio right now ... checking him out. Early prognosis is ... it's broken, but he'll have to get x-rays to confirm.

Just last week -- Alek's fellow train hero Spencer Stone was nearly killed when he got stabbed four times in the chest in a bar fight. Also, Alek was supposed to be at Umpqua Community College the day the shooting happened there -- but was at 'DWTS' instead.

Alek visited Spencer in the hospital just this weekend.

Toddler Down!!

Car Door Hits Penelope

10/12/2015 9:38 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_penelope_kourtney_kardashian_car_door_launchKourtney Kardashian had a serious mom moment -- she looked away for a split second, and one of her kids took a car door to the face!

Kourt was actually holding 3-year-old Penelope's hand as they walked past a parked car in Malibu on Sunday -- and at that very moment, one of the car doors flung open.

Poor Penelope went down in a heap, and, naturally burst into tears. Mom and the nanny quickly comforted her ... and we're told she's okay.

Kids. They bounce back.

'Undateable' Actor

Splits Tongue Open

Hours Before Live Show

10/9/2015 4:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1009_Rick_Glassman_tongue_injury_photos_launch2"Undateable" actor Rick Glassman split his tongue open during rehearsal and was spewing blood, less than 4 hours before the live show.

Glassman -- who plays Burski on the NBC comedy --  bit into a toasted bagel and accidentally chomped down on his tongue. He was rushed to the ER where he got stitches ... the photos are disturbing.

We're told Glassman has a big part in this episode, which sent producers scrambling.

We're told he's back on set with an hour to spare and doesn't sound too bad. He's hopped up on pain meds, which makes him swallow frequently.

Should make for great TV.

breaking news

0908-bella-hadid-getty-01Bella Hadid and her brother Anwar have both suffered from Lyme disease ... the same disease her mother Yolanda Foster has battled for several years ... and almost no one knew until Thursday night.

Yolanda revealed her children were plagued by the same tickborne, often debilitating disease she's battled. Yolanda, who has been hospitalized for prolonged periods, said, "When my 2 youngest children, Bella and Anwar, were diagnosed with chronic Lyme disease in early 2012, watching my babies struggle in silence in order to support me in my journey, struck the deepest core of hopelessness inside of me."

Yolanda made the announcement when she received the "Power of One" award in NYC.

TMZ broke the story ... the 75-year-old showed up to a Toronto hospital Tuesday night for a mild chest infection. He was treated and released, but we were told he'd be unable to return to set for a few days. No rest for the wicked.

Kim Zolciak


'DWTS' Pulls the Plug

9/28/2015 8:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Kim Zolciak got booted off "Dancing with the Stars" Monday night, but she was totally caught off guard by producers' decision to cut her.

Sources closely involved tell us Kim was not given a heads up that she would be cut -- and was only told she needed to Skype in during the show to provide an update on her health.

As we reported ... Kim is still in Atlanta recovering from the mini-stroke (TIA) she suffered last week. We're told she really wanted to dance, and even practiced with her partner Tony Dovolani. Ultimately doctors wouldn't allow her to fly back to L.A.

But rules are rules ... and 'DWTS' says theirs say a competitor must withdraw if he/she has to skip a performance. Kim was hit with that bombshell while Skyping.

There's already a social media push to bring Kim and Tony back next week. We're told Kim is upset producers didn't use a video of her practice session to score her this week ... which they did in the past for Melissa Rycoft in season 8.

Stay tuned ...

Kim Zolciak

My Stroke

Saved My Life

9/26/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925_Kim-Zolciak_HOSPITAL_instagram-2Kim Zolciak's mini-stroke was far more serious than anyone thought ... we've learned she had a heart procedure following the TIA and could have died.

As we reported, Kim had the mini-stroke in Atlanta, hours after appearing on "Dancing with the Stars." She had lost feeling on one side and her ability to speak, but it was only temporary. 

Kim has told friends that doctors thought she could be released almost immediately, but a test revealed there was a more serious, underlying heart issue. Doctors kept her in the hospital and she told friends the docs performed a procedure Friday. We do not know the nature of the problem or what doctors did to correct it. 

We're told Kim would never have known about the heart issue had she not gone into the hospital for the TIA. And doctors told Kim if the heart problem were left untreated, it could have become life-threatening.

As for Kim's status on "Dancing with the Stars," our sources say it's highly doubtful she'll dance Monday.

Serious Spider Bite

Exclusive Details

0925-sub-stephanie-pratt-instagram-01Stephanie Pratt had a medical emergency on Thursday -- a spider bite that was so bad, she couldn't feel part of her face ... and not in that fun Weeknd kinda way.  

The former 'Hills' star tells us she woke up in London -- where she now lives -- with a nasty bite under her eye, and her face was so swollen it looked like she had a tumor. She immediately went to a hospital to get antibiotics for the swelling, and to drain the puss.

She says doctors determined it was a spider bite, and they believe it could have been a black widow. Stephanie says she was temporarily blinded in her left eye, and lost feeling in her face.

Everything is back to normal now and she is at home resting.

0924-rosie-odonnell-michelle-rounds-TMZ-01Rosie O'Donnell saved the life of her estranged wife by keeping her on the phone while EMTs rushed to help her ... TMZ has learned.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us ... Michelle Rounds had overdosed on pills after threatening to end her life. We're told Rosie got wind of Michelle's plan, called her and tried talking her out of it. Rosie got someone to call 911 as she stayed on the phone with Michelle.

Law enforcement confirms that Michelle was rushed to a local Nyack, NY hospital from a hotel at 11:15 PM Tuesday.

As one source put it ... Michelle wouldn't be alive today without Rosie's intervention.

We're also told the trigger for Michelle was child custody. Sources tell us Michelle lost custody of their 2-year-old daughter to Rosie, and that sent her over the edge.

Rosie even comforted Michelle while in the hospital.

Calls to Rosie's rep were not returned.
