Mark Harmon Hey Pooch ... Take a Bite Out of Crime ... Not the Crew!!!

10/26/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1025_Mark-and-Dave_twitter'NCIS' star Mark Harmon has a dog that attacked a crew member on set, but the dog has a pretty solid defense.

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, Harmon's dog is a 3-year-old pit bull mix that he rescued as a pup. His name is Dave.

Mark frequently brought Dave to the set, which was a dog-friendly environment. Other cast and crew members brought their dogs as well.

We're told a week ago one of the crew members was roughhousing with Dave ... something he did a lot, when the pooch became scared and attacked.

Our sources say the crew member needed 16 stitches to close the wounds, but returned to the set and is fine.

As for Dave, he hasn't been back to the set, but he's fine and, as we said, has a plausible defense.

She says she loves 'OITNB' and the cast and crew, adding, "I've never felt more accepted, forgiven, and supported than during this period of my life. This is not easy."

Comedian Terry Hodges Lawyers Screwed Me in Tucker Suit Just to Protect Netflix

10/23/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017_Terry-Hodges_chris_tucker_netflix_getty_tmzComedian Terry Hodges wants his double-crossing lawyers to pay for deceiving him into dropping Netflix from a major lawsuit ... according to the new lawsuit he's filing against them.

Hodges sued Netflix and Chris Tucker last year, claiming he did a ton of work for Tucker's Netflix special, but never got a dime for it. He says his lawyers had a major conflict of interest though because Netflix is one of their clients.

In docs, Hodges says "mayhem broke loose" on his legal team, and their solution was to trick him into dropping Netflix from his lawsuit to focus on Tucker. Hodges says doing this heavily damaged his case -- because Netflix has deeper pockets.

Hodges says his lawyers stopped looking out for his best interests, dropped him as a client and he ended up with zilch.

The comedian wants his ex-lawyers to fork over the big payday he should've received from Netflix.

The New York woman told us her story ... she went into a KFC and paid 20 bucks for the "Family Fill Up" deal -- expecting an overflowing feast -- but got cheated. She contacted KFC about the false advertising and a rep offered her a coupon for her troubles ... but she told them to eat it.

Instead, she wants the restaurant chain to pay her $20 MILLION ... though she admits that number might be a tad high -- for a good reason.

A KFC spokesperson tells us ... they've got this one in the bucket.

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.
