President Trump Invites Eagles To White House Team Coordinating Trip

5/17/2018 4:03 PM PDT
Breaking News

The Philadelphia Eagles have officially been invited to the White House to celebrate their Super Bowl win ... and now the question is -- who's gonna show up?

The folks at 1600 Penn. announced the invite Thursday afternoon, saying "President Trump looks forward to welcoming the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House on June 5th to celebrate their Super Bowl LII win.”

The Eagles seemed to accept the invite saying ... they're "working through the logistics of a trip to Washington DC, including a visit to the White House, on June 5th."

Here's the thing ... several prominent players have made it VERY clear they have no interest in meeting up with Trump ... including Torrey SmithChris LongMalcolm Jenkins and Dannell Ellerbe.

FYI -- the last team to be so outspoken about Trump -- the Golden State Warriors -- had their White House invite pulled after Stephen Curry opposed the visit.

So, while the whole team might visit the nation's capital next month ... there probably won't be perfect attendance when the players head over to Trump's crib.

Michael Cohen Stormy Lawyer Will Be 'Reckless' with Seized Docs ... NY Attorney Fears

5/17/2018 1:18 PM PDT

A NY attorney wants an order protecting the information the FBI seized from Michael Cohen's office ... because of attorney-client privilege and his fear that Stormy Daniels' lawyer, Michael Avenatti, is shady.

The lawyer's name is Peter Gleason, and he claims he's had discussions with Cohen about political corruption in NY state. He says he's uncertain if Cohen's notes about those meetings are among the seized documents, but it's clear he doesn't want Avenatti -- who's trying to intervene in the FBI's case -- to get his hands on them.

In the docs, Gleason calls Avenatti's behavior "reckless and wanton." He refers to Avenatti as having "questionable tactics" and a "fast and loose style."

As for the questionable tactics, he says Avenatti attributed certain "fraudulent" wire transfers to the wrong Michael Cohen. He also says he claimed to have bank records belonging to Cohen ... something that isn't kosher.

Gleason says he wants to keep Avenatti and Stormy a mile away from any docs collected that include his records.

Rudy Giuliani No Way Prez Trump Can Be Indicted ... Even If He Shoots Someone

5/17/2018 7:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rudy Giuliani said there's no room for interpretation -- Prez Trump can't be indicted ... even if he shoots someone.

We got Giuliani arriving at Reagan National Airport on Thursday and reminded him what Trump said in January 2016, when he was the then-GOP frontrunner. You'll recall Trump bragged that his popularity among his base was so strong he could stand in the middle of 5th Ave. and shoot somebody and not lose any voters.

With that in mind, our guy pressed Giuliani and wondered if he still thinks a President can't be indicted, even under those circumstances. Remember ... Giuliani claims a member of Robert Mueller's special counsel team acknowledged the President cannot be indicted.

Check it out ... Giuliani then lays down a step-by-step process of how Mueller's team has to handle a sitting Prez.

Stormy Daniels' Lawyer Accused of Pulling a Trump ... Ex-Law Partner Sues

5/16/2018 5:35 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Stormy Daniels' attorney, Michael Avenatti, is making a name for himself by going after President Trump, but now he's facing his own lawsuit ... and he's accused of doing something very Trumpian.

According to new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Avenatti's being sued by Jason Frank, a former partner at Egan Avenatti ... Michael's law firm, because he claims Avenatti stiffed him out of a couple mil.

Frank alleges Avenatti pulled a Trump in 2016 by refusing to hand over his firm's tax returns. Frank says he needed that data to figure out how much money he was owed under their deal when he left the company ... which he says is 25 percent of firm profits, plus a cut of client fees.

According to the docs, filed by attorney Eric George ... Frank and Avenatti's firm eventually duked it out in arbitration, and the firm settled with him for $4.85 million.

Problem is, according to Frank, when it came time to fork over the first $2 mil payment ... the firm stiffed him. Now he's suing to get Stormy's lawyer to pay up.

Avenatti tells us, "Jason Frank is trying to get attention for himself. His allegations are baseless and fraudulent."

Moby Little Advice, Trump ... WWJD Re: Jerusalem Embassy?

5/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Moby thinks he knows how a conversation between Jesus and President Trump would go down ... and it ain't pretty. 

We got him Tuesday at L.A.'s Little Pine restaurant, and the iconic DJ/producer was heated about the deadly violence this week following the U.S. embassy move from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. At least 60 Palestinians were reportedly killed during protests.

Moby admits he has no religious skin in the game, but he's still pissed about what he sees as the rationale behind the move -- namely the second coming. Really.

He laid into Trump and his disciples, saying they've got Jesus seriously twisted. Moby offered some advice, although, for his sake ... we hope he's not holding his breath. 

Anne Frank I Got Dirty Jokes!!! New Diary Pages Uncovered

5/15/2018 11:10 AM PDT
Breaking News

Anne Frank was a typical teenager in at least one way -- she told dirty jokes and had strong opinions about sex, birth control and prostitution ... which she included in her famous diary.

Dutch researchers deciphered the writing on 2 pages of Anne's diary dated September 28, 1942 ... less than 3 months after she and her family went into hiding from Nazis in an Amsterdam house. The pages include 4 dirty jokes.

The humor's a little lost in translation, but one is about German soldiers banging Dutch women, and others are about men catching their wives banging other men ... and men with ugly wives.

Anne had covered the pages with brown paper, possibly out of fear someone would read them. Researchers uncovered the text by taking photos of the pages, backlit by a flash and then used image-processing software to decipher the words. 

About prostitution, Anne wrote: "All men, if they are normal, go with women, women like that accost them on the street and then they go together. In Paris they have big houses for that. Papa has been there."

She also described a young woman getting her period around age 14 as "a sign that she is ripe to have relations with a man but one doesn't do that of course before one is married."

Rudy Giuliani Trump Apology to McCain? ... Next Question

5/15/2018 10:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rudy Giuliani stonewalled our photog who had a simple question ... shouldn't Trump apologize for the despicable remark one of his employees made about Senator John McCain?

Giuliani arrived at Reagan National Airport Tuesday and our guy -- like millions of Americans -- wanted to know how a decent person wouldn't say "I'm sorry" after an employee HE PICKED would say something so disgusting ... writing off an American hero struggling with brain cancer by saying he's "dying anyway."

Giuliani -- who has had no problem in the past speaking to the media on street corners, airports and other places -- shut our photog down, saying the airport wasn't the place to talk about it.

Trinidad James Kanye's Rants Won't Hurt Adidas ... I'd Still Buy A Pair

EXCLUSIVE

Trinidad James doesn't think Kanye West's recent rant about slavery or wearing his MAGA hat will hurt Adidas' bottom line in the long run, although it seems to have put a dent in Yeezy sales overseas already.

On May 5, a Yeezy-affiliated event in Sydney, Australia was shut down 45 minutes after it began because no one showed up. It's possible it was poorly publicized, but many think it's damage done from Ye's recent rants.

When we got TJ, a huge sneakerhead, at Atlanta's Lenox Square mall, he told us no one showing up to Kanye's Oz event might actually be a good thing.  

As for himself, he says he'd still buy Yeezys, just not right now ... but for different reasons.

Good news for Melania Trump ... she's recovering "really well" after undergoing kidney surgery on Monday ... this according to her husband, Donald Trump.

Melania underwent an embolization procedure at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center near Washington D.C. to treat a benign kidney condition, according to the White House.

The White House did not say exactly why Melania needed the procedure -- but medical experts say it's minimally invasive.

Breaking News

Melania Trump is hospitalized, and will be for several days, after having surgery Monday morning on her kidney.

The First Lady had a procedure called embolization done at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Embolization is considered a minimally invasive surgery, and involves cutting off blood flow to a particular part of the body. It's typically used to shrink a tumor or block an aneurysm ... although the White House isn't saying why Melania needed the procedure. They simply referred to it as "a benign kidney condition."

The surgery was a success and there were no complications, according to her office.

She's expected to remain at the hospital for the rest of the week.

Kumail Nanjiani Bends the Knee to Meghan McCain ... In Fight Over Her Dad

5/14/2018 7:44 AM PDT

Meghan McCain UNLOADED on "Silicon Valley" star Kumail Nanjiani Monday morning for essentially saying her father, John McCain, didn't do enough to stand up for victims of bigotry. 

So, how did Kumail respond? With one of the nicest compliments ever. 

Backstory ... Meghan was pissed over a tweet Kumail posted about the White House aide who caused outrage last week when she joked that John's opinions didn't matter because he's gonna die soon anyway. 

"What was said about McCain was vile," Nanjiani wrote ... "but I wish the McCain’s had been as offended and vocal when vile stuff was said about other people/races/nationalities."

"Perhaps we wouldn’t be in this moment right now."

Meghan -- John's daughter -- was deeply offended and fired back Monday morning with a heated note and a video showing her dad shutting down anti-Obama supporters at a 2008 rally. 

"You mean like he did here? I could give you literally thousands of examples of my father speaking up against bigotry of all kinds but this video sums it up pretty concisely," Meghan wrote.

"You know nothing about my family or my father Kumail, nothing."

Kumail responded a short time later ... 

"Meghan, I did not mean to offend you. I could explain my point further but instead I will just say something I truly believe: if we had more politicians like your father, the world would be a better place."

Meghan thanked Kumail for his response -- and he wished her family well. 

Christie Brinkley Uptown Girl Gettin' Down with Stormy Daniels' Lawyer

5/13/2018 1:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Christie Brinkley's been divorced from Billy Joel for decades, but it seems she still likes big shots ... this one in the form of Stormy Daniels' lawyer.

Christie got super cozy Saturday night with Michael Avenatti. Christie and her brood were dining at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor, NY, when Avenatti pulled up a chair toward the end of the meal. Everyone else left, but Christie and Mike stuck around to chat, laugh and be merry.

It's unclear what exactly they were discussing, but we imagine one subject might've come up -- Donald Trump. She's claimed Trump hit on her while he was married to Ivana Trump, and when she was dating Billy. She said Trump invited her to Aspen on his private jet ... she declined.

Avenatti tells us he and Christie are friends. He says she's a "classy, smart woman with great insight."  

Michael Avenatti ... he hangs with women who banged Trump and women who didn't.

EXCLUSIVE

John O'Hurley went after former Prez Obama in a big way ... saying he won a Nobel Peace Prize for nothing and therefore Trump should get one for trying to de-nuclearize North Korea.

We got John in WeHo Saturday night leaving Craig's ... and the staunch conservative praised Trump for trying to show North Koreans there's a better life "on the other side."  

Then again ... based on some serious background noise, it could very well be the Veal Parmesan talking.
