Omarosa Sent to Hospital On 'Celebrity Big Brother'

2/10/2018 10:26 AM PST
Breaking News

5:45 PM PT -- CBS confirmed Omarosa received medical attention Friday night and Saturday for an asthma attack, and says the development will be addressed on Sunday night's broadcast.

We're told her time away from the house was consistent with past houseguests who've had to leave for short-term medical care.

4:40 PM PT -- Omarosa is back in the house. The 'CBB' live feeds returned and she's with the other houseguests. She was out due to her medical issue for about 19 hours.

11:15 AM PT -- Marissa just disclosed on the live feed that Omarosa's still not back in the house, and suggests she possibly drummed up an asthma attack so she could leave and get some rest at the hospital. Marissa sounds pissed, too ... telling other houseguests she wants to know how much sleep Omarosa got.

Omarosa apparently had a rough time during a Head of Household competition on "Celebrity Big Brother" ... and got sent to the hospital for treatment.

The 'CBB' live feeds went down Friday night during the competition -- where the houseguests reportedly had to get dizzy and bowl -- but when they came back ... fans found out Omarosa was taken to the hospital, and is possibly still there.

The news came out in a convo between Ross Mathews and Marissa Jaret Winokur about the HoH competition, with Ross questioning if Omarosa would be allowed to come back. Marissa tells him injuries happen on the show -- like Christmas Abbott's broken ankle last season -- and the houseguests can return. Then she says, about Omarosa ... "I put her in the hospital."

It's unclear what medical issue Omarosa had, but considering Mathews and Winokur were joking about it ... it doesn't seem too serious.

We've reached out to CBS to ask if and when Omarosa will return to the house ... no word back so far.

J.B. Smoove 'This is Us' Superfan ... Put Me on the Show!!!

2/10/2018 1:21 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

J.B. Smoove's just discovered what millions of people already know -- "This is Us" is great television ... and he can't stop watching it.

We got the comedian and "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star at LAX Saturday and asked him a question he couldn't answer ... because he's been too "locked in" on the hit NBC drama to follow the news.

Smoove tells us he's been binge-watching and raves about how good the cast is. He says it could always get better, though ... if he was on it!

As for who he'd play ... J.B.'s got an idea, and a couple LAX employees absolutely love it.

Jaleel White Bikes Jacked in Broad Daylight Did YOU Do That???

2/9/2018 5:03 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Someone's messing with Jaleel White's prized possessions -- 2 top dollar electric bikes were burglarized from his home ... and you better believe Urkel's pissed.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Jaleel discovered one of his garage doors was left unlocked Thursday afternoon, and a thief had made off with his Stromer electric mountain bikes. 

Jaleel tells us one of his alert neighbors -- who was aware of the burglary -- saw a guy riding around on the bike not too far from Jaleel's home. The neighbor snapped this pic, and Jaleel tells us he's given it to cops. We're told they're now investigating.

This much we know ... whoever jacked Jaleel's rides must not know what he does to thieves who mess with him.

EXCLUSIVE

Reginald E. Cathey, who had huge roles in "House of Cards" and "The Wire," has died ... TMZ has learned.

The beloved actor passed away at his home in New York, surrounded by friends and family. We're told he'd been battling lung cancer.

He also famously played the mayor's aide, Norman Wilson, on several seasons of "The Wire."

He was a hard working character actor in Hollywood for more than 30 years with dozens of roles on TV and in movies ... including "Oz," 'Law & Order: SVU,' 'Fantastic Four,' "The Mask" and "S.W.A.T."

Steve Harvey Calls BS On Charity Lawsuit The Guy Suing Me is a Huckster

2/9/2018 4:43 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Steve Harvey says the guy suing him for a gigantic commission for one of Harvey's charities is a fraud.

Harvey just filed legal docs firing back at Vincent Dimmock, who claimed in his lawsuit he struck a deal with Harvey back in April to raise $20 million, and in return he was promised 12.5% of everything he raked in. He says he got a bunch of A-listers on board and even a former President ... with pledges totaling $20 mil.

Harvey is calling BS, saying Dimmock originally reached out to him to promote an energy drink, and when that went nowhere Harvey says Dimmock pivoted and falsely told him he had a billionaire in his pocket who would invest big in Harvey's charity.

Steve says he actually flew to Austin to meet the billionaire, and it quickly became evident the guy didn't know Dimmock at all. What's more, Harvey says neither the billionaire nor anyone else connected to Dimmock invested a penny in any of his ventures. 

Harvey says the entire charade was part of a scheme for Dimmock to meet him. 

Malcolm-Jamal Warner Omarosa's Wrong!!! Trump and Cosby Not the Same Deal

2/9/2018 1:41 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Malcolm-Jamal Warner thinks Omarosa's Donald Trump-Bill Cosby comparison is unfair ... because she knew what she was getting into BEFORE she went to work with the Prez.

The former 'Cosby Show' star was at LAX Friday when he addressed Omarosa's convo on "Celebrity Big Brother" with Keshia Knight-Pulliam. She tried to justify being loyal to Trump by pointing out Keshia stuck by Cosby during his sexual assault trial.

MJW's not having it, and explains he and Keshia grew up with Cosby -- long before the flood of sexual misconduct allegations -- and considered him family. 

Malcolm adds ... Omarosa made a conscious choice to get in with Trump, despite all his controversial comments on the campaign trail. 

He's got a theory on what she's really trying to do, though.

Kristin Cavallari Relaunching Reality Career ... w/ Jay Cutler!

2/9/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

She's baaaaack! 

Kristin Cavallari is starring in a brand new reality show -- but it ain't exactly "The Hills."

Sources connected to the project tell us the show will focus on Kristin's life in Nashville as she expands her fashion empire. 

Our sources say Cavallari's NFL star husband, Jay Cutler, will appear in the show, but it's really about Kristin. The show is currently in production and we're told it's expected to air on E! later this year.

The 31-year-old mom recently said she would never put her 3 kids on a reality show -- unclear if she plans on sticking by those words for this project since it seems to be pretty tame and family-oriented. 

As for Jay, his NFL career is still up in the air -- he played out his 1-year contract with the Miami Dolphins in 2017 and did pretty well. 

Kristin has strongly insinuated she wants him to retire once and for all, but would support Jay if he decided to play another season.

'Celebrity Big Brother' Lots of Alcohol = Scandalous Secrets ... You Listening, Trump?

2/9/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Celebrity Big Brother" is out to spill secrets this season, because producers are plying the contestants with truth serum in the form of booze.

Production sources tell TMZ ... the bigwigs have changed the policy of limiting alcohol consumption ... the spigot is wide open and the cast is taking full advantage. Omarosa, James Maslow, Brandi Glanville, Ross Mathews and the other houseguests have partaken every night since January 31 when they entered the house.

The buzz we're hearing ... producers want Omarosa to spill the beans on her tenure in the White House. She's already started, turning on Trump ... saying everyone should be worried about the Prez, saying things in the W.H. are "so bad."

The show used to be stingy in the alcohol department ... it was typical contestants would share 2 bottles of wine and a few 6-packs each night, but producers are worried celebrities play things closer to the vest than the average Joe, so a little alcohol -- or a lot -- always does the trick. 

The show has even created a meetin' place for booze-fueled convos -- a new bar. 

Omarosa, have another?

Kaley Cuoco to David Spade 'Get the Hell Over Here Right Now!!!'

2/9/2018 7:08 AM PST

Kaley Cuoco ran after David Spade not once ... not twice ... but THREE. DAMN. TIMES. And it looked like it had the guy thinking, "Just shoot me."

The 'Big Bang Theory' star was outside Craig's in WeHo with a group of friends Thursday night when she noticed her former "8 Simple Rules" co-star walking out to grab his car from valet.

Kaley was determined NOT to let him leave without a quick hello that turned into a circus. We ask him if he's going to her wedding. She recently got engaged to her bf, Karl Cook.

Check it out ... it gets a tad awkward before Kaley runs after David. Again ... times 2.

Omarosa Blasts Trump & WH Staff ... It's Bad and We Should All Be Worried

2/8/2018 9:31 AM PST

Omarosa's tears were flowing on "Celebrity Big Brother," and the topic of convo getting her all worked up ... her time spent under President Trump.

The former White House staffer was having a heart-to-heart with fellow houseguest Ross Mathews, who questioned why she went to work for the Prez in the first place. Omarosa explains she felt it was a call to duty to serve her country -- not Trump -- but things turned sour pretty quickly.

To be fair ... 'Big Brother' contestants are known to play up the theatrics, but Omarosa certainly seemed sincere when she told Ross she was "haunted by tweets every single day" and attacked by Trump's other staffers when she tried to advise him.

The most shocking part, though -- Omarosa suggests nobody has any control over Trump, and we should all be very worried about the current situation at the WH. As she puts it ... "It's baaaad."

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Kardashian has broken her silence with the paparazzi -- and the first words out of her mouth are gonna send "Stranger Things" fans into a frenzy.

We got Kim Wednesday leaving her DASH store and fired off a bunch of questions to see if she'd finally bite for once. Turns out, Millie Bobby Brown got her talking.

Kim recently gifted Millie a set from her new fragrance line, Kimoji Hearts, and Millie was clearly grateful. The 2 ladies have kinda been fangirling over each other as of late.

In light of their newfound friendship, we ask Kim if she'd ever consider a guest spot on the hit Netflix show. It's possible ... apparently it's her fave. Well, 2nd fave ... Millie, too, actually.

Oprah Quincy Jones is My Hero ... But I Gotta Read That Interview!!!

2/7/2018 4:52 PM PST

Oprah's staying mum on that shocking Quincy Jones interview making the rounds today -- partly because she hasn't read it yet ... but mostly because they go way back.

We got O leaving the Apollo Theater in Harlem Wednesday and asked her for her thoughts on some of the bold claims made by Jones in his convo with Vulture ... like how he used to date Ivanka Trump.

Oprah's got no comment, other than to praise Quincy because he discovered her for her breakout role in "The Color Purple" ... which he produced. She tells us he's a close friend, and no matter how crazy that interview is ... she ain't talking.

But seriously, Oprah ... you gotta read it.
