Wendy Williams is taking several weeks off from her TV show -- on doctor's orders -- to deal with a medical crisis related to hyperthyroidism.

Wendy announced at the top of Wednesday's show that she's suffering from Graves' disease ... an immune system disorder. She says one of the symptoms effects the muscles behind her eyeballs ... which she tried to turn into a joke.

Exclusive Details

'Survivor' winner Jenna Morasca allegedly was so whacked out on drugs she had to be revived with Narcan and, when she regained consciousness, she bit a cop.

Morasca, who won a million bucks on "Survivor: The Amazon" in 2003, was observed unconscious in her SUV in Washington, Pennsylvania in an intersection with the ignition on ... this according to the police report obtained by TMZ.

Cops were called, and they observed a passenger in the car trying to hide several syringes in a large Ziploc bag in her purse. Cops quickly determined Morasca was under the influence, administered Narcan, and placed her on a stretcher and into an ambulance.

According to the police report, Morasca, who also appeared on "Survivor: All-Stars" and "The Amazing Race," tried to bite paramedics on the way to the hospital. An officer entered the ambulance trying to subdue her, and cops say Morasca bit her on the forearm.

She was arrested for DUI and possession of narcotics paraphernalia and will be charged with assaulting a police officer for the incident, which occurred at the end of January.

EXCLUSIVE

UFC fighter Devin Powell is one bro who won't be getting lucky on Valentine's Day -- 'cause he's in the hospital nursing a surgically-repaired nut.

No, we aren't making this up ... and Devin gave TMZ Sports the cringy play-by-play of the accident.

Devin told us he was training his ground game with UFC vet Joe Lauzon ... and it was business as usual until Joe's knee sandwiched one of his testicles and "exploded it."

"The top of it felt like a big sack of worms -- all the veins had swelled," Powell said.

The worst part -- Powell says he waited A DAY AND A HALF before getting his ruptured ball checked out. 

Lucky for him, it wasn't too late. Devin says the scrotal surgery was a success ... and he's already asking Dana White to book him on an upcoming UFC card!

Seriously, the balls on this guy ...

Omarosa 'Big Brother' Hospital Scare Was a Dizzy Doozy

2/11/2018 5:54 PM PST

Omarosa went to the hospital last week after a dizzying bowling competition on "Celebrity Big Brother" ... and the game seemed pretty intense on TV.

The former White House staffer was among the first guests to partake in the game -- aptly called Bowlerina -- in which players have to spin around to lower a gate guarding some pins ... and then try bowling them over from afar. 

Omarosa went up against Marissa Jaret Winokur, and kinda got her ass handed to her in the process. More importantly, though, she had to spin around twice to lower her gate ... and appeared to suffer an asthma attack as a result. 

As we reported ... Omarosa was sent to the hospital after the game, which left some house guests speculating she faked the attack to get some rest outside the house.

O was out of the house for nearly 19 hours ... we'll let you be the judge as to the seriousness of her attack.

Steve Wilkos Hospitalized After Gnarly Car Wreck

EXCLUSIVE

Steve Wilkos is lucky to be alive after a car crash sent the talk show host and former Jerry Springer bodyguard to the hospital.

Law enforcement sources in Darien, Connecticut tell us Wilkos was involved in a single-car accident Sunday afternoon. We're told his vehicle struck several poles and a tree before ending up on its side ... Wilkos was transported to a local hospital for his injuries but has since been discharged.

Wilkos tells TMZ he typically wears glasses when he drives, but he was not wearing them before the crash. He says he was reaching for his glasses to put them on when he hit the curb and then struck the poles and a tree. Wilkos says he never drinks or does drugs.

Wilkos tells us he's pretty beat up but will be ok. In a terrible coincidence, Wilkos says the same day he crashed, his audio guy on the show and the crew member's wife were driving in the same area when they crashed -- both were killed. Production is set to start back up in a few days.

Wilkos found his fame as Jerry Springer's bodyguard on the popular talk show before creating his own show -- "The Steve Wilkos Show" -- in 2007.

Police tell us the crash remains an "active and open investigation."

Cristiano Ronaldo No, Not the Face ... Not the Face!!!!

1/21/2018 12:13 PM PST

Cristiano Ronaldo faced off with a cleat and won a goal, but lost some skin in the process -- which seemed to piss him off after a quick mirror check on the nearest phone possible.

The Real Madrid striker suffered a nasty injury Sunday in the final few minutes of his team's match against Deportivo -- going in for a header, scoring ... but walking away with a bloody face from a cut near his eye.

As he left the pitch, Ronaldo used a team medic's phone to check out the damage to his second crown jewel (feet first, of course) -- and couldn't help but look annoyed AF. 

He certainly paid the price for Real Madrid's 6-1 lead in the 84th minute. But hey, the goal itself looked pretty sick from our POV ... for whatever that's worth.

The Pope was in Iquique, Chile to urge the country to end its ongoing conflict with the Mapuche people -- the indigenous people of Chile -- when the incident occurred.

The Pope got off the Popemobile and stood by the cop until an ambulance arrived.

The Vatican says the woman "received words of consolation from the Holy Father."

She was taken away in the ambulance and her condition is unknown, although the Vatican stated she was conscious the entire time.
