EXCLUSIVE

Matt Groening has a new Netflix show out called "Disenchantment" ... but he's got an enchanting way of appeasing autograph seekers -- he comes prepared.

We got "The Simpsons" creator at LAX Friday, and he showed up with a bag full of signed cartoon drawings to give away ... which he calls his new strategy for pleasing his fans.

Our cameraman even got an original Elfo! (He's one of the stars of Groening's new show.)

Then our guy hit Matt with some jarring news -- a 3D artist on Twitter posted his imagining of what a real-life Homer Simpson would look like ... and he basically replied with an "Ay, Caramba!"

Yeah, it's pretty scary ... but Groening seemed to quickly come around on making 3D Homer a star.

EXCLUSIVE

Ed Westwick is back in circulation, after the D.A. rejected 3 sexual assault cases.

Westwick was leaving Craig's in WeHo Friday night, when we asked how he felt about the outcome. He clearly feels the D.A. did what had to be done -- reject the cases.

Shonda Rhimes Sued Over Sidewalk Scandal!!!

8/17/2018 3:01 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shonda Rhimes hasn't had a misstep in her career, which is more than can be said about a world-renowned physician who tripped and fell in front of her house, and now the good doc is suing her.

Dr. Kuo Chao claims in a new lawsuit, he was jogging past Shonda's Hancock Park mansion in L.A. back in June 2017, when he tripped over a buckling sidewalk in front of the 8,400 square foot home.

He says he broke his wrist, damaged cartilage and lost range of motion and function in his wrist and arm, which has caused limited mobility and loss of strength and stamina. He also says he has lost "fine motor skills." He says he was unable to work for a long time and it still affects his ability to work. 

Dr. Chao says he is a prestigious interventional neuroradiologist -- he treats stroke and aneurysm patients. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Yale.  

As for why Dr. Chao says Shonda's responsible, he says she had an obligation to fix the sidewalk, which buckled due to pipes, tree roots and botched repairs. He's also suing the City of L.A.

Dr. Chao is asking for unspecified damages.

We reached out to Shonda's rep .. so far, no word back.

'Star Trek' Star Nichelle Nichols Her Son's the Problem, Not Dementia ... Claims Alleged Friend

8/17/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nichelle Nichols is spry and lucid, and doesn't need to be controlled by a bunch of people who don't have her best interests at heart -- including her son-- so says a woman claiming to be her close friend.

According to new legal docs filed by Angelique Fawcette ... the 'Star Trek' icon's son, Kyle Johnson, doesn't really care about Nichols' well-being ... she says he's trying to use her health issues as an excuse to gain possession of her riches.

Fawcette claims Nichelle even wrote a note to her son in March 2017, letting him know she wants to amend her will because he allegedly told her ... "I can't wait to get rid of this sh*t and sell [your] house and property."

As for Nichols' recent dementia diagnosis ... Fawcette says it's not credible because the doctor who diagnosed is not a psychiatrist and lacks necessary qualifications. And, Fawcette says she's consistently observed Nichelle performing daily activities with no issues ... she just needs occasional reminders to pay her bills.

We broke the story ... Johnson claimed his mother needed court-ordered protection because people were taking advantage of her. A judge signed off on a conservatorship.

Fawcette claims it's all a ruse set up by Nichols' son, so he can get his hands on her money. She says Nichelle's doing just fine and wants to keep living her life and handling her own business ... and her 2013 video interview with Nichols is more proof.

EXCLUSIVE

Dana White once hated Tito Ortiz's guts so much that the two men almost had a real-deal boxing match in 2007 -- but we're told the two are actually on good terms now. 

It's no secret that White and Ortiz clashed -- but things got so bad back in the day that Dana says the guys were gonna duke it out FOR REAL in a boxing match until, at the 11th hour, Ortiz got cold feet.

White tells Harvey Levin the story about how he brought in a boxing coach and a team to prep for the fight and it'll all be featured on "OBJECTified," which airs Sunday on FOX News Channel.

What's really interesting ... White is CONVINCED he would've won the fight over the UFC Hall of Famer, telling Harvey he had real boxing experience back in the day and felt he is a superior striker. 

"I absolutely would've won that boxing match."

Good news for both sides ... they're in a much better place now. No fighting in their future.

8/15/2018 4:57 PM PDT

Kris Jenner still loves Kanye West ... even if he does fantasize about getting with her daughters, despite being married to Kim.

We got Kris and her mom leaving Nate'n Al deli in Beverly Hills Wednesday, and asked if she has any thoughts on Kanye's new track ... in which he revealed he wants to "smash" all 4 of his sisters-in-law.

Kris seems to find it all kind of funny, and says she's got nothing but love for Ye ... so, not your typical mother-in-law response.

That's not to say she's down with Kanye's lyrics, though ... because we know she's always got Kim's back.

'Brady Bunch' House Lights, Camera, Action!!! HGTV Starts Shooting New Show

8/15/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

There's a bunch of camera activity at the famed 'Brady Bunch' house -- maybe the most its seen in more than 40 years -- as HGTV begins pre-production for a new TV show about the groovy pad. 

The network started shooting Tuesday at the crib in Studio City, CA ... capturing establishing shots of the exterior, and using a drone for aerial pics. 

Although HGTV's production crews probably aren't getting a warm welcome from pissed off neighbors -- it's full steam ahead with chronicling the redesign of the iconic home. We're told filming notices have been distributed around the block.

As we reported ... HGTV beat out Lance Bass in a bidding war for the property.

We've also learned the house hit the market because the owner died and her family wanted to sell to the highest, most qualified bidder. Kelsey McCallister, the granddaughter of the previous owner, will help produce the show and even hopes to be one of the hosts.

Uniformed guards started standing watch this week outside the property. 

Priyanka Chopra Surprise, Here's My Engagement Ring

8/14/2018 4:53 PM PDT

Nick Jonas' rumored fiancee, Priyanka Chopra, seems to have just put the speculation to bed -- 'cause she's got a big rock on THAT finger ... which may or may not have been meant to be seen publicly. 

Actress Raveena Tandon posted a shot of her with Priyanka Tuesday with Priyanka's left arm wrapped around her neck -- placing her ring finger on full display.

Yep, that's an engagement ring alright ... and it looks like the youngest Jo Bro shelled out big time based on how big it is. Now, we're not jewelers or anything -- but this bling doesn't appear to be as elaborate as the one Joe got for Sophie late last year.  

She said yes.

A post shared by J O E J O N A S (@joejonas) on

Whatevs though. Dude put a ring on it -- and that means Priyanka's officially off the market. Sorry, fellas.

EXCLUSIVE

The White House didn't work out for Omarosa ... but she might be a better fit in a different house. 

D'Andra Simmons, one of the stars of 'Real Housewives of Dallas,' is certain Omarosa could be the next big thing on her series, which returns Wednesday night.

We caught up with Simmons in NYC, and she tells us Omarosa would be "an amazing Housewife" cast member -- mainly because she's proven she's not afraid to mix it up with people ... just ask President Trump. Remember, she told us he's trying to start a race war.

As for any current drama in Dallas -- it sounds like D'Andra's relationship with LeeAnne Locken is strained ... at best.
