Cris Collinsworth Shot Fired at Bill Simmons ... Your Show Flopped!

11/14/2016 3:03 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1114_cris_collinsworth_bill_simmons_tmzCris Collinsworth is straight Twitter beefin' with Bill Simmons ... and it's kind of awesome.

Here's the long story short ... Simmons was snarkin' on Twitter Sunday night during the Pats vs. Seahawks game on 'SNF' ... which Collinsworth was announcing. 

Bill commented that someone needed to "gently" inform Cris that the Seahawks offense was dominating the Pats because they have a weak front 7. 

CC didn't take kindly to the criticism and fired back. 

"Thanks Bill, we'll look for you 'gently' breaking it down on that hit show of yours."

Ouch.

Of course, Cris was referring to Bill's show, "Any Given Wednesday" -- which was recently cancelled after disappointing ratings. 

Cris has since deleted his tweet.

11/14/2016 8:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1114-Corey-Sligh-mug-shot-tmzActor Corey Sligh was arrested and booked for child molestation in his home state of Georgia.

The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office says Sligh -- who was an extra on 'Young and the Restless' -- was busted last month after the child's parents reported the alleged molestation on Sept. 24. We're told the alleged victim is a girl who was under 10 at the time.

According to docs ... the alleged acts of molestation occurred between April and September. It's unclear how many times Sligh is accused of molesting the child.

Deputies arrested him on October 14 and released the same day on a $22k bond.

Corey tells TMZ, "I am innocent and fighting this until the end, and the truth will prevail."

11/14/2016 6:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

President-elect Donald Trump is breaking from his #2 on gay marriage and also moderating his views on immigration deportation and Obamacare.

Trump had a chitchat with Lesley Stahl on "60 Minutes" Sunday and not only vowed not to mount a challenge to the SCOTUS decision validating gay marriage, he said he's fine with it.

He also pulled back from mass deportation, saying he'd get the criminals out and then reevaluate.

Ditto on Obamacare ... he'll save some of it.

Shades of Reagan?

'Hogan's Heroes' Star Bob Crane Murderer to Be Revealed on Live TV

11/11/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110_bob_crane_crime_scene_getty-fox-news-10_2The man who viciously murdered Bob Crane, the star of the iconic TV show "Hogan's Heroes," may be exposed on TV after a 38 year unsolved mystery.

Crane was bludgeoned to death with a camera tripod in his Scottsdale apartment back in 1978. He and his good friend, John Carpenter, were deep into kinky sex ... secretly filming various sexual configurations involving numerous women.

Carpenter's rent-a-car was seized by cops just days after Crane's murder, and they found blood inside. Carpenter was tried for murder, but there was a problem. DNA was not perfected then, and the jury found him not guilty because there wasn't conclusive proof it was Crane's blood.

1110_bob_crane_blood_SUB_fox10Enter Phoenix Fox 10 anchor John Hook. More than a year ago, Hook started working with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and convinced prosecutors to release enough blood so state-of-the-art DNA tests could be conducted.

The DNA results are in. Hook is mum, but he will reveal the results Monday on the 9 PM news.

If the blood is a match with the blood found in Carpenter's car, it's close to a slam dunk he was the killer, but he can't be prosecuted for 2 reasons ... double jeopardy, and he's dead.

'Shameless' Star and Wife Sued I'm Here for Your Kids ... Not Penis Pics & Harassment

11/11/2016 7:21 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1111-steve-howey-sarah-shahi-TMZ-0"Shameless" star Steve Howey and his wife, Sarah Shahi, put their former nanny through the wringer -- over being Muslim, over her body, and sexually harassed her ... according to the nanny's lawsuit.

Howey and Shahi -- who's starred in "Person of Interest," "Chicago Fire" and "The L Word" -- hired Sarah Alaseri in July 2012 to take care of their 3 kids ... but Alaseri says Howey would berate her about following Muslim customs in their presence. She says the verbal abuse got so bad, she felt she couldn't do her daily prayers in the house.

Howey's wife, on the other hand, was all about sharing sexual gossip and innuendo with her nanny ... according to the suit. Alaseri says Shahi would encourage her to get in shape and "run off" with Howey. Why? 

According to Alaseri, Shahi told her about an affair with an "A-list" actor who left her "sore" -- and she even played show and tell. The nanny says Shahi whipped out pics of her lover's junk, and said she wanted to "move on with her life" ... without Howey.

The nanny says after 3 years, the abuse was too much to handle, and she quit. She's suing for damages for back wages, harassment, wrongful termination -- basically, a lot of money.

The lawsuit is damn near ripped from a "Shameless" script. On the show, Howey's character and his wife both slept with their nanny and then invited her into a sort of 3-way marriage. 

We've reached out to Howey and Shahi's reps ... no word back.

Not relevant to the suit, but still a fun fact -- Shahi is a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader.

EXCLUSIVE

James Corden isn't always the jolly host he plays on TV ... and that's probably 'cause he can't always get the guests he wants for his sing-along shtick. 

We got James leaving Craig's Sunday where he got short and defensive when asked what songs he would have sung with The Rolling Stones for "Carpool Karaoke" -- assuming the rumors he got snubbed by them are true.

Watch -- he has another question on his mind entirely ... and a bitchy answer too.

'Criminal Minds' Ex-Exec My Pooch Didn't Bite Your Caboose ... It Was Just a Scratch!!!

11/5/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1104-timothy-swing-dog-bite-tmz-sbs-4An ex-showrunner over at "Criminal Minds" has a situation on his hands that's less feet-kicking-legs and more teeth-biting-ass ... according to an alleged victim. 

Construction worker Timothy Swing tells us he was working this week at the home of former "Criminal Minds" executive producer Edward Bernero when 1 of Ed's 3 Dobermans sank its teeth into his right butt cheek.  

Tim says he got a tetanus shot at urgent care, and Edward offered him $3k to make the whole thing go away.

Here's the problem ... Tim says he was poised to rake in almost $13k from the 5 month gig before getting chomped on day 2 ... and Ed never made good on the payment.

Ed has a very different story. He says Tim called the dogs over and started playing with 1 before another jumped on him from behind and scratched him -- that's it. Ed says he felt bad and wanted to help with the bill, until Tim demanded $3k.

Meanwhile, Tim tells us Ed has reached out and offered him some cash ... in return for a promise not to sue.

EXCLUSIVE

1104-robert-durst-HBO-01Robert Durst has been extradited and is now in an L.A. County jail, awaiting a court hearing where he will be arraigned on the charge of first degree murder in the death of Susan Berman ... TMZ has learned.

Durst was the subject of the docuseries 'The Jinx,' where he made a statement some say was incriminating and others say a downright confession when he uttered the words, "killed them all."

Berman was murdered in 2000, and authorities believe Durst killed her because she knew something about the mysterious death of his wife, Kathleen, who disappeared in 1982.

We've learned Durst will plead not guilty to the charge when he is arraigned in L.A. Superior Court on Monday.

He has a powerful, multi-state legal team, which includes Dick DeGuerin, Chip Lewis, David Chesnoff and Don Re ... all of whom have won big murder cases.

We've learned he was taken from an Indiana federal prison to L.A. County jail, where he will await his court appearance.

Durst is being held without bail.

ABC News BUSTED Faked Crime Scene for Live Shot

11/4/2016 12:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

1104_abc_news_staged_live_shot_cnnWhen is a crime scene not really a crime scene?? When ABC News FAKES IT for a live TV shot.

Viewers at home watched live Friday morning as Linsey Davis reported in front of what appeared to be a crime scene in South Carolina ... where a woman had allegedly been held captive in a storage container by a sex offender. 

Problem was ... the crime scene tape was just a TV prop to make it look like she was in front of the real crime scene ... and the lie was exposed in a photo obtained by CNN. 

You can clearly see the yellow tape was tied to production equipment to give the illusion Davis was reporting right from the scene of the investigation. The segment aired on "Good Morning America."

ABC News is placing the blame on the field producer -- saying, "As soon as it was brought to our attention, we decided to take the producer out of the field, and we're investigating further."

"This action is completely unacceptable and fails to meet the standards of ABC News," ABC News' VP of Communication said in a statement.

By the way, this isn't the first time Davis has been in the headlines this week -- she was the reporter who interviewed Lil Wayne for 'Nightline' when he ranted about Black Lives Matter and stormed out of the interview
