Nancy Grace Cosby Needs to Do Hard Time, Period!

4/26/2018 1:34 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nancy Grace says Bill Cosby's conviction on sexual assault charges is a long time coming -- and he needs to go to prison ... and immediately.

We spoke to the former prosecutor and TV host on the heels of Cosby being found guilty Thursday on all three counts of aggravated indecent assault -- for which he's facing up to 30 years in prison.

Nancy's not sure he'll get the full 30 years, which would amount to a life sentence since Cosby's 80 years old, but she says it doesn't matter. Hard time is necessary in his case.

She also comes to the defense of Cosby's victims -- especially, Janice Dickinson, who Nancy says caught a ton of flak after going public with her allegations against Cosby. 

Bill Cosby Guilty of Sexual Assault ... Lashes Out in Courtroom

4/26/2018 10:50 AM PDT
Breaking News

1:15 PM PT -- Cosby's been ordered to remain in his home until sentencing.

11:18 AM PT -- Multiple people in the courtroom claim Cosby lashed out after prosecutors asked he be taken into custody immediately because he owns a private plane and could flee. Cosby shouted, "He doesn't have a private plane, you a**hole!"

Cosby was released on a $1 million bail.

Bill Cosby's retrial for sexual assault has just ended, and the jury found the once legendary TV dad guilty on all 3 counts of aggravated indecent assault. 

The jury of 7 men and 5 women deliberated a full day before reaching their verdict and finding Cosby guilty of drugging and molesting Andrea Constand in 2004 at his home.

The 80-year-old faces a maximum of 10 years in prison for each charge.

The verdict comes after the jurors spent 13 days in the courtroom hearing lawyers' arguments and testimony from witnesses, including Constand and 5 other women who claim they were also drugged and sexually assaulted by Cosby.

That wasn't enough, though, because on Wednesday the jurors asked for the legal definition of consent. The judge said Pennsylvania law did not provide a definition ... it was essentially left up to the sensibility of jurors.

Cosby's attorneys attacked Constand by portraying her as a liar who tried to frame him to make money ... while prosecutors called out the attack as the reason sex crime victims are afraid to come forward.

Prosecutor Kristen Feden also blasted Cosby for smirking while she talked about his accusers, saying ... "He's laughing like it's funny, but there’s absolutely nothing funny about them being stripped of their capacity to consent.”

As we reported ... Cosby's June 2017 trial ended in a mistrial because the jury then had 2 not guilty holdouts

'Cops' New Footage Released ... Crew Member Shot, Killed While Taping

4/26/2018 8:44 AM PDT

The "Cops" crew member who was shot and killed during a shootout got caught between officers and the robber who was trying to escape ... is now seen on video for the first time.

A judge just released the "Cops" camera crew footage of the 2014 incident, which left audio operator Bryce Dion dead. He was shot by a cop who was firing while chasing a suspect who'd just robbed a Wendy's in Omaha.

When the shootout ends you see the cameraman running out to the parking lot, trying to capture footage as the officers captured the suspect -- but first, he sees Bryce on the floor. He was still moving, but he eventually died from his wounds.

As we reported, Bryce's family sued the city of Omaha for wrongful death. The 3 officers involved in the shooting were cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

Lo Bosworth Adios, Laguna ... Life's Just Beachy!!

4/26/2018 8:01 AM PDT

'Laguna Beach' might be in her rear view, but Lo Bosworth is still soaking up the rays ... just a little further south now.

The 'LB' and 'Hills' alum is kicking it down in the uber popular Tulum, Mexico right now for a little vacay. No slave to fashion, Lo opted for a simple black one piece instead of a flashy bikini.

The 31-year-old businesswoman is now running her own lifestyle website to share her knowledge on food and wellness.

We'd say she's come a long way since those 'Hills' days with Lauren Conrad and co. -- but let's keep it real ... it hasn't been THAT long. 

It's about time to get that reunion show organized ... or possibly a reboot. No? Just us?

4/26/2018 6:52 AM PDT

Allison Mack's every move is, officially, on Uncle Sam's radar ... the "Smallville" star is now rocking a sweet little GPS monitor on the heels of her sex cult arrest.

Mack, who was best known as Chloe Sullivan on "Smallville," is now known as the alleged pimp of a sex cult who got busted in Mexico last week. She was extradited to the U.S., and Wednesday in L.A. she got fitted with a GPS ankle monitor as a term of her bail.

Mack was indicted on sex trafficking and conspiracy to commit forced labor charges. She could get 15 years to life, if convicted. The FBI says she recruited and directed women, sometimes other actresses, to have sex with Keith Raniere -- the alleged leader of the cult -- who was also arrested.

EXCLUSIVE

"The Bachelorette" star Becca Kufrin let a big cat out of the bag Tuesday afternoon when she was spotted shooting for the show in the hometown of one of her hopeful suitors.

This is where we tell ya ... SPOILER ALERT, SPOILER ALERT!!!!

Yes, you've seen the pic, but if you don't wanna know what happened with the lucky guy, look away now.

We'll say this ... Becca looked real cozy strolling through the streets of Manteca, CA with him.

His name is Garrett Yrigoyen, and if he's made it all the way to a hometown date, she's gotta be into him. The show always tags along when the 'Bachelorette' goes to her 4 finalists' hometowns. 

We're told cameras were following as the couple strolled through downtown and hit up the history museum and even met the mayor -- so, it wasn't much of a secret around town. There was even a welcome sign for them hanging at the local Transit Center. 

The show won't air 'til later this year, and ABC hasn't officially announced all the contestants, yet, so ... clearly, Garrett is one to watch.

4/25/2018 4:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Entourage" creator Doug Ellin is filing for divorce, and the honeymoon was barely over ... TMZ has learned.

Doug filed his divorce petition in L.A., citing irreconcilable differences ... and effectively ending his brief marriage to Andrea Adler. According to the docs, they just got married in September of last year.

Can't say 4/20 was very happy for them -- Doug says that's the date they separated.

The couple got engaged almost exactly a year ago. Doug popped the question to Andy -- who's a sports anchor for WPIX in NYC -- during a trip to New Orleans on April 30. 

They don't have any kids, and neither is seeking spousal support ... according to the docs.

Hopefully they can, at least, hug it out?

Sarah Jessica Parker Sued for Flaking On Huge Jewelry Deal ... SJP's Team Calls BS

4/25/2018 10:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

1:29 PM PT -- Sources close to SJP tell us the actress was hit with several additional requests from the company after she'd already signed an original deal. We're told none of the new demands were in the first contract.

Our sources say the new requests included -- 50 Instagram posts a year, bring Kat Florence to 4 events per year, wear the jewelry to 24 events per year PLUS at all award shows, wear one piece to all magazine shoots AND do 12 International magazine interviews per year discussing the jewelry.

A rep for SJP tells us, "Kat Florence reneged on their contract with SJP. They have refused to compensate her after fulfilling her contractual obligations and continue to use her image for advertising and publicity to promote their brand."

Sarah Jessica Parker made a multi-million dollar deal to launch a new line of jewelry, but hasn't come close to holding up her end of the bargain ... according to a new suit.

Jewelry designer Kat Florence claims she and SJP teamed up in October 2015 to promote a new line of jewelry, design a special line of high-end products named after them ... and open 3 luxury shops in Europe with Parker's help in opening at least one of them.

Problem is, according to the docs, SJP signed a $7.5 million deal -- which was supposed to be for a 5-year commitment -- and began bailing on it almost immediately after the ink dried.

Florence claims Parker informed her she wouldn't be able to promote anything for 5 months because she was filming for her show, "Divorce," refused to attend jewelry events but promoted other personal ventures ... and refused to attend the launch of the London store, saying she was too busy.

As a result, the special line of SJP jewely was allegedly never launched and the London shop had to close.

Parker's being sued for breach of contract -- Florence is asking for unspecified damages.

EXCLUSIVE

One of Allison Mack's co-stars on "Smallville" says she was fairly normal while shooting the show, and never showed any signs she might have been part of an alleged sex cult.

We got Sam Jones III -- who starred alongside Mack for 3 seasons -- and he tells us she had a boyfriend at the time, and he never suspected she would get arrested for alleged ties to the self-help group, Nxivm -- for which she's accused of recruiting women to be "sex slaves." 

Smallville's Pete Ross offered his ex-castmate some advice ahead of her trial, where she's facing sex trafficking and conspiracy charges ... and could get 15 years in prison. His tip has to do with the residuals from the show, which -- as Sam showed us -- are still pretty fat.

'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Died of a Stroke Influenza & Heart Disease as Contributing Causes

4/24/2018 8:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Night Court" star Harry Anderson died of a stroke he apparently suffered in the night, which might've been triggered by the flu and a specific type of heart disease. 

TMZ has obtained Anderson's death certificate, which lists the actor's primary cause of death as cardioembolic cerebrovascular accident, which is a stroke that's caused by the heart pumping unwanted materials into the brain's circulation. 

The contributing causes are listed as influenza -- the flu -- and a heart disease that affects the tissue of the organ by either enlarging it or disrupting its natural motor function.

As we reported ... Anderson was found dead on arrival last week after his wife called 911. She told the operator that his body was cold, and that CPR wouldn't help. She also mentioned he'd suffered a series of strokes earlier this year.

He was 65.

EXCLUSIVE

Tracy Morgan sticks to his O.G. status on and off camera, especially when he hears his hit new show just got picked up for a new season ... queue LL Cool J slaps.

We got Tracy Monday arriving to the 'Daily Show' set in NYC, where he was scheduled to appear as one of Trevor Noah's guests. He also happened to show up hours after the news broke that his TBS comedy, "The Last O.G.," had gotten picked up for a second season. 

Call us crazy, but it sounds like Tracy knew his character, Tray, was coming back -- 'cause he was blasting LL's 2004 single, "Headsprung," out of his Rolls-Royce, which is nothing short of a party anthem. He also had on the biggest damn chain in the world.

Granted ... 2004 ain't all that old when you're talking 'O.G.' -- especially for an LL track -- but we'll cut the dude a break. Good news is good news, right?

4/24/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gina Rodriguez just added another pooch to her dog family ... an adorable 9-week-old Havanese that cost $2.5k.

The "Jane the Virgin" actress pulled the trigger Sunday at Citipups Chelsea in New York City. We're told she came in several times last week to spend time with the dog, and then finally brought her other pooch, Casper, in over the weekend to make sure the two got along, which was a success.

Gina had another dog, Ted, that passed away about 2 years ago, so looks like she's trying to get Casper another pal while she pulls long hours on the "Jane the Virgin" set. 

The Havanese pup was neutered Monday, so Gina will be able to take him home this week once the pupper has recovered.
