'Ice Road Truckers' Star Darrell Ward Dies In Plane Crash At 52

8/29/2016 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

darrell_ward_facebook_launch"Ice Road Truckers" star Darrell Ward died in a plane crash Sunday.

Darrell had just left a truck show in Dallas where he met fans and friends, and was heading back to Missoula, MT to begin filming a pilot for his new documentary -- ironically and sadly about the recovery of plane wrecks.

Darrell was flying with a co-pilot when their Cessna single engine plane crashed on approach near the Rock Creek exit of Interstate 90.

The family said, "While many of you will share in this loss, we ask that you respect the family’s privacy during their time of grief. His manager and best friend M. Bob Stanton and long time friend Chuck Campbell are expected to make a lengthier statement shortly."

He was 52 years old.

RIP

Gay Bachelor Cast Member Reveals He's HIV Positive

8/28/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0826-finding-prince-charming-cast-LOGO-01One of the 13 suitors trying to hook up with TV's first gay bachelor is HIV positive, and even though producers were aware, they kept the cast in the dark ... TMZ has learned.

We're told Robert Sepulveda Jr. -- the "Finding Prince Charming" bachelor -- got the bombshell news early on during taping, and we're told the reveal will become a focal point. Our sources tell us producers think the show will resonate with straight and gay viewers, and educate the audience. 

As for the reveal itself -- we're told it was emotional and Robert was supportive of the cast member.

The show's already been taped, but no word on whether the HIV positive guy was chosen after opening up about his diagnosis.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Exes You're Now Free to Kiss & Make Up Around the Cabin

8/26/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0825-izzy-vinny-tmz-01"Bachelor in Paradise" stars Izzy Goodkind and Vinny Ventiera are making the quantum leap from epic TV breakup to real-life PDA ... at 30,000 feet.

We got a pic of Izzy and Vinny getting cozy Wednesday during their L.A. to NYC flight, and they didn't seem too concerned with any spoiler alerts. Passengers say they couldn't keep their hands off each other ... and Izzy eventually fell asleep in his lap.

Worth noting: Vinny took a center seat to sit next to her. THAT's gotta be love.

As of Tuesday night's 'BiP' this seemed totally improbable -- Vinny left the island after a blowout fight with Izzy. So, what changed between taping the show and now?

Our photog got them at LAX right before they boarded the flight. They tried peddling that ole "just friends" bit ... until Izzy blew their cover. Check it out. 

Ex-'LHHNY' Star Nya Lee Moon Over Miami ... In Broad Daylight

8/25/2016 8:28 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0825_nya_lee_swimsuit_thong_booty_beach_photos_launchNya Lee's got some holes in her swimsuit game -- but photogs didn't mind it a bit when she hit the beach in Miami.

The former "Love & Hip Hop: New York" star made headlines earlier this year when she converted to Islam. During her photo shoot on Wednesday, Nya was sporting a black one-piece ... clearly designed by someone who believes less is more.

Her butt does not follow that theory.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Josh Murray Nick Viall Won't Answer the Phone

8/24/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-josh-murray-nick-viall-instagram-01The beef between "Bachelor in Paradise" stars Josh Murray and Nick Viall is so real, Nick hasn't returned Josh's phone calls since season 3 wrapped ... TMZ has learned.  

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... when 'BiP' wrapped in June, several cast members warned Josh that Nick portrayed him as the villain for stealing away Amanda Stanton. Our sources say Josh felt blindsided by the bad blood but wanted to make things cool with Nick, so he reached out to him before the show aired ... but Nick never responded.

Sources close to Josh tell us he feels Nick seized the opportunity to play the role as a "victim" and feels that he won over Amanda fairly. When Josh first arrived at the house, he asked the girls if any of them were in a serious relationship ... and Amanda said no. However, we're told the clip didn't make the cut.

After seeing the drama unfold, we're told Josh feels it's now too late to ever respect him again.

Now that's tough love.

Blac Chyna Sued Your Friend, Your Car, Your Problem

8/23/2016 5:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0823-blac-chyna-tmzBlac Chyna sent a woman to the hospital ... at least according to a woman who has now filed suit against the the future Mrs. Kardashian.

TMZ broke the story ... Chyna's friend, Paige Addison, was tooling around in Chyna's BMW back in November when she blew a stop sign and slammed into an SUV and injured 2 people inside. The lawsuit claims Chyna should've known Paige was a bad driver and should never have let her take the wheel.

Paige was charged with felony hit-and-run.

The people in the SUV want medical expenses, lost wages and other damages.

We've reached out to Chyna ... so far, no word back.

'Rica Famosa Latina' Brawl Real Blood and Broken Glass ... Take THAT 'Housewives'

8/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Two of the 'Rica Famosa Latina' stars turned a scripted fight into a very real, very gangsta showdown that landed one of 'em in the hospital with a bloodied face.

Cast members Sandra and Victoria were taping a scene at a fashion event in Culver City when the brawl started. According to the police report, producers had planned (yes, that's how reality shows really work) to shoot the women arguing over a dress. 

We're told Victoria was supposed to throw a glass of wine on a mannequin, and then Sandra would throw a glass of wine back at Victoria.

0819-victoria-vs-sandra-rica-famosa-latina-01But Sandra went off script, according to cops ... attacking Victoria by smashing the wine glass over her head and then cutting her with the jagged, broken end. Victoria was rushed to a hospital with cuts on her head and chest.

Despite the injuries, law enforcement sources tell us neither women will be charged. They're chalking it up to mutual combat for a TV show. BTW ... way better combat than the 'Real Housewives' typically offer.

¡Esto es showbiz, chica!

Corey Feldman Contacts Corey Haim's Ghost ... Haim's Mom On Warpath

8/20/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0819_corey-feldman-and-corey-haim_tmz_gettyCorey Haim's mother is pissed off at Corey Feldman for claiming he talked to her dead son through a psychic because she says Feldman's the last guy on Earth Haim would want to hit up.

Feldman filmed an episode of "Hollywood Medium With Tyler Henry" and a promo shows him tearing up when Henry allegedly contacts his late BFF, who died in 2010.

But Judy Haim says Feldman's crying act was just that -- bogus tears, shed only for a paycheck.

Judy says her son had distanced himself from Feldman while trying to sober up in the years before his death. She thinks Feldman continues to play up the friendship because he's desperate to be relevant.

She says she's repeatedly asked Feldman to stop talking about her son and let him rest in peace. Obviously, no dice.

'RHOC' Star Kelly Meza-Dodd My Sunset View Will Cost Ya $6 Mil

8/19/2016 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_kelly_dodd_mansion_launchKelly Meza-Dodd from 'Real Housewives of Orange County' is getting rid of some prime OC real estate ... and doing some high-priced flipping in the process.

Kelly's listed her 4 bedroom, 4 bath oceanside home in Newport Beach for $6.25 million. The pad is a stone's throw from Big Corona Beach and in pristine condition, hence the steep price.

Kelly and her husband bought it just a year ago for $3.575 mil, but they've sunk some dough into it ... doing a bunch of renovations. Check out what they've done to the 4,370 sq. feet of the place.

Pretty sweet, especially the view from the rooftop deck.

EXCLUSIVE

So much for true love -- just days after Ray J and Princess Love tied the knot, their 'LHHH' co-star, Moniece Slaughter, is ready to bury their marriage ... and she's got the first shovel full of dirt.

This could be a classic case of sour grapes -- after all, Moniece didn't get an invite to the wedding -- but on her way out of seeing a movie with Milan Christopher ... she claimed Ray's got no shot at being a one woman man.

A little background on this beef ... Moniece hooked up with Ray J before Princess was in the picture, but the fling still caused drama, and the two have been sending shots at each other since. 

We'll give Moniece credit for saying ONE nice thing about the couple. Just one.
