Krista Allen Catches Burglar Mid-Break-In ... Family Dog Injured

2/23/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Krista Allen walked in on a would-be burglar, who she says badly injured her dog during the break-in ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us Krista arrived back at her San Fernando Valley home Thursday and found a transient woman inside. We're told Krista called 911 and held the woman down until cops arrived.

The story gets crazier ... Krista claimed the woman pointed out that their family dog was having difficulty getting up, which led Krista to believe the woman had kicked her pup. The dog -- an 11-year-old beagle named Jack -- was, in fact, injured. Krista had to take him to the vet for treatment. She posted an update on him, and also revealed ... another dog, a puggle named Jake, was also injured during the incident.

Cops say the woman drank Krista's alcohol and ingested pills that were in the house. We're told she also had Krista's vibrator.

We've reached out to Krista's rep ... no comment.

Breaking News

"The Crown" star Claire Foy has separated from her husband, actor Stephen Campbell Moore.

Foy said in a statement that this was by no means a recent event ... "We have separated and have been for some time."

Although the statement says nothing about divorce, the words she uses loom large for an end to her 4-year marriage ... "We do however continue as great friends with the utmost respect for one another."

Foy's husband had a major health scare last year when he was diagnosed with a tumor on his pituitary gland. Fortunately, it was benign.

33-year-old Claire herself had a similar scare at age 17, when she was diagnosed with a tumor in her eye. Again, benign.

EXCLUSIVE

"Goliath" star Tania Raymonde has done a sex scene or two in her career ... so any new guidelines that would make it more comfortable for her and other actresses is totally OK with her.

We got Tania at LAX Wednesday where we asked her about a new union proposal that includes having an "intimacy director" on set. The move comes on the heels of the Harvey Weinstein scandal to protect actresses who might feel they're being pressured to get naked in auditions or forced into aggressive kissing.

Tania -- who appears topless and has several sex scenes in Billy Bob Thornton's Amazon show, "Goliath" -- says she's pretty lucky that her scenes have always felt comfortable ... but measures to make it even more comfortable are always welcome.

EXCLUSIVE

There's only one person capable of hosting "The Wendy Williams Show," even if she's sidelined due to illness ... and God help you, if you suggest otherwise!

We got Wendy Williams Tuesday afternoon outside her NYC studio right after she announced she's been diagnosed with Graves' diseases and needs to take time off. She had a nice farewell message for her fans, but her tone changed dramatically when we raised the possibility of a ... guest host?

Remember, doctors recommended Wendy take 3 weeks of vacation, stat -- so it seemed like a reasonable question.

Let's just say Wendy did NOT see things the way our photog did!

She handed him a very clear lesson, which is ... NO. ONE. REPLACES. WENDY. WILLIAMS. Ya got that?

Breaking News

8:26 AM PT -- A rep for "The Wendy Williams Show" says they'll be running reruns of her show during her hiatus after Wednesday's episode ... while going on to call her a "true champion" whose health comes before all else.

Wendy Williams is taking several weeks off from her TV show -- on doctor's orders -- to deal with a medical crisis related to hyperthyroidism.

Wendy announced at the top of Wednesday's show that she's suffering from Graves' disease ... an immune system disorder. She says one of the symptoms effects the muscles behind her eyeballs ... which she tried to turn into a joke.

Sounds like she'll be okay, but her doctor says she immediately needs to take 3 weeks of vacation. Wendy says she's only taking 2 weeks ... starting tomorrow.

Tavis Smiley Sues PBS Fired Me Over 'Trumped Up' Sexual Harassment Claims

2/20/2018 3:25 PM PST
Breaking News

Tavis Smiley says PBS firing him wasn't just about sexual harassment allegations ... he now claims it was racial, and it's costing him millions upon millions of dollars.

Smiley filed a lawsuit against his former network -- which aired his talk show for 14 years -- claiming the sexual harassment allegations against him were "trumped up." Immediately after Smiley was suspended in mid December, he admitted to having relationships with coworkers ... but insisted they were all consensual. He was fired later that month.

In his lawsuit, first reported by the Washington Post, Smiley says there was racial tension at PBS. He claims network honchos "hassled Mr. Smiley when he had African American guests who espoused controversial positions, and effectively tried to stop any such guests from appearing."

Smiley also says in the docs ... his personal production company has been hemorrhaging "multiple millions of dollars" since he got fired, and he's been forced to lay off roughly 20 employees.

PBS calls Smiley's lawsuit a "meritless" attempt to distract the public from his "pattern of sexual misconduct." Jennifer Rankin Byrne, Communications VP for PBS, also reiterated an independent law firm's investigation found Smiley had "multiple sexual encounters with subordinates over many years."

Byrne says that's why Smiley was ultimately fired and it's "ridiculous and false" for him to claim it was about anything else.  

Andy Dick GF Files for Restraining Order

EXCLUSIVE

Andy Dick's longtime girlfriend, and mother of 2 of his kids, has filed to get a restraining order against him ... TMZ has learned.

Lena Sved filed documents Tuesday in L.A., requesting court-ordered protection from Dick. We don't know if a judge has signed off yet, but typically a temporary restraining order will be approved ... until a later hearing can be scheduled.

The court has classified this as a domestic violence case, but it's unclear what she's alleging Dick did.

Andy and Lena have 2 adult children together ... both in their 20s.

The couple's been on and off for decades. They appeared on "Celebrity Wife Swap" together in 2013, even though they weren't married. In fact ... they weren't even dating at the time. 

We don't know if they're still together right now -- their last public outing as a couple was in 2015.

President Trump Blasts Oprah's '60 Minutes' Report ... Hopes She Runs for Prez

2/19/2018 6:32 AM PST
Breaking News

President Trump is ripping Oprah the journalist -- for her report on his first year in office -- but says he's looking forward to defeating Oprah the candidate.

Trump, apparently, changed the channel on his TV Sunday night just long enough to catch Oprah on "60 Minutes" doing a round table discussion with Michigan voters -- pro and anti-Trump. He wasn't impressed, and dismissed Oprah, who he used to know very well, as "insecure" ... and claimed her "questions were biased and slanted."

Trump added he hopes "Oprah runs so she can be exposed and defeated." Guessing he hasn't heard Oprah declare repeatedly that she's NOT running for Prez.

As for Oprah's report ... Trump's supporters definitely had their say. Maybe he didn't watch long enough. 

Happy President's Day!

Corinne Olympios has finally found her Hunny and it's not in DeMario Jackson, despite the two spending Valentine's Day together. 

We're told the "Bachelor in Paradise" star just got a new mini-Pomeranian pup, which she's named Hunny. Corinne got the pooch 2 weeks ago after plopping down a couple of G's.

Corinne already has a chow named Mookie, but wanted Mookie to have a companion since she's working a lot and often not home. 

Hunny was flown in from Tokyo, where the mini-Pom breeder is based. The two pooches look an awful lot alike, apart from the obvious size difference ...  they're already getting along just swimmingly.

As for DeMario, he ain't in the dog house. We're told the two are still "just friends."

Jaden Smith I Go Shirtless for Nature, Man!!!

2/16/2018 3:14 PM PST

Jaden Smith doesn't just give back to his community -- he goes topless to give back, and makes it look good ... as his pops once put it.

We're guessing Will and Jada Pinkett Smith are pretty proud of Jaden and his sister, Willow, after they put time and labor into planting trees at Laurel Canyon Park in L.A. Friday afternoon. The famous sibs were with a group of friends helping to spruce up the 'hood.

Of course, Jaden appeared to be the only one doing it shirtless. It was also apparent that no one was complaining about his abs being on display. 

We last saw the Smith kids hanging out together while they were vacationing in Hawaii. No blood, sweat and tears that time around ... just doing their best to catch rad waves.

Exclusive Details

Stan Lee's house was swarmed by cops Thursday after a man allegedly refused to leave his property. 

Law enforcement sources tell us they were called to the Marvel founder's L.A. home after a former bodyguard of Lee's showed up. We're told both Lee and his daughter asked Max Anderson -- a convicted felon -- to leave, and when he refused, they called police to intervene.

Our sources say reps from adult protective services were also called. Once officers arrived they spoke to Anderson, and we're told he agreed to leave peacefully. 

Stan has had a rough past few weeks ... he was taken to the hospital earlier this month for heart trouble and cops are investigating the unauthorized purchase of an $850k condo made in Stan's name.

On the bright side ... "Black Panther," which he co-created, is already killing it at the box office. 

In response to Thursday's incident, we're told Stan has hired private security to watch his property 24/7 to prevent any more intruders.

No, he's not hiring King T'Challa to watch his back.
