7/25/2016 7:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0725-ariel-winter-minor-fender-bender-cute-crop-top-short-shorts-FAMEFLYNET-01Ariel Winter has a remedy for the SoCal heatwave -- just wear less.

Ariel was out and about in L.A. over the weekend wearing an outfit that's as cooling as the law will allow. Far as we know there are no plans for another 'Dukes of Hazzard' reboot.

But this pic might change some minds.

Breaking News

0724-sable-ranch-valley-santa-clarita-forest-fire-FACEBOOK-02A popular Hollywood set -- used for "24" and "The A-Team" -- is nothing but ash and debris after a 22,000 acre wildfire swept through the Southern California location.

Sable Ranch in Santa Clarita was  destroyed Saturday by the massive blaze which has literally blocked out the sun in much of Los Angeles.  Some offices were saved ... but the sets were a loss.

The back lot's been used for tons of TV shows and movies, including "Robin Hood: Men in Tights" and classic Westerns like, "The Bells of Coronado."

The fire has also burned down 17 houses in the area. As of Sunday morning it was only 10% contained.

'Friends' Creator Marta Kauffman Single Again ... And Loaded

7/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0722-marta-kauffman-michael-skloff-GETTY-01The co-creator of "Friends" just struck a divorce settlement, and we've learned it involves a yearly residual check that would make your eyes pop out.

Marta Kauffman and Michael Skloff have just ended their 31-year marriage. According to legal docs filed with the court, and obtained by TMZ, they're both doing well but it looks like she gets more.

The big-ticket item ... Marta gets one "Friends" residual check a year, and our sources say it's a doozy ... many millions of dollars. According to the settlement agreement, she gets to keep 75%, and as soon as she gets the check she must write one to Michael for 25% ... pronto.

BTW ... Michael gets his own residual check ... he composed the show's theme song, and gets a big fat check he gets to keep all to himself.

There are multiple houses ... and she gets 3 out of the 4, including the super-expensive one on Broad Beach in Malibu.

Marta is a prolific producer, who also created "Grace and Frankie," which is currently on the air. She also gets residuals from "Joey," "Dream On" and "Veronica's Closet." And the money from all these shows is hers and hers alone.

You gotta have Friends.

Jeremy Piven Bike Victim I Got Cut Deep But I'm Not Suing

7/21/2016 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0721-main-jeremy-piven-victim-wm-tmz-03Jeremy Piven is damn lucky the biker who slammed into his car door ... happens to be more starstruck than pissed off about the accident.

Erick Netterblad tells TMZ it was surreal seeing Piven's face moments after his chest was gashed open. He says he immediately recognized him from "Entourage" as he crashed to the ground.

Netterblad has no plans to sue though, since he says Piven was totally helpful. He says the actor called police and an ambulance, rescued his bike from the road and got him water. When Netterblad wanted to lay down, Piven advised him not to, and instead made him sit in the shade -- and he didn't leave until the ambulance left.

Netterblad got several stitches, but was out of the hospital about 5 hours later.

CNN's Chris Cuomo We're Not Anti-Trump And We Do it BEST

7/21/2016 8:49 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

CNN anchor Chris Cuomo scoffed at the notion CNN is anti-Trump, despite the absence of coverage of Gov. Mike Pence's speech on the homepage of the network's website.

Our photog got Chris out Thursday after his morning show, and the anchor was strong, saying his network's coverage of the election is fair and unparalleled. He takes a shot at TMZ as a fringe player, but is still pretty gracious.

0721-cnn-homepage-03

Fact is ... check out CNN's homepage first thing Thursday morning. Lots of stories about Cruz and "Donald Trump's Dreadful Night," but nothing about Pence.  

There is one story about the Vice President -- "'Veep' Actor Disqualified from Emmy."

"Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson's got some advice for Ted Cruz -- get off the tracks, the Donald Trump express is coming through. 

We got Phil on his way out of the RNC Wednesday night and he was fired up about "Lyin' Ted" going rogue -- refusing to endorse Trump during his speech.

Check out Phil's take -- it's interesting because he admits he was a Cruz man ... until Cruz got crushed by Trump. He's moved on, and thinks it's time for Ted to do the same.

EXCLUSIVE

0720-adrienne-bailon_TMZAdrienne Bailon's playing a mean game of hide-and-seek with her management company and the $200k it's owed ... at least according to the ex-managers who are suing her.

Go2Man Management says "The Real" co-host has gone AWOL and refuses to pay fees and reimbursements she owes to the tune of at least $200k.

According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, G2M struck a 5-year deal in 2011 to rep Adrienne ... and she agreed to pay them 20% of her income. 

She joined "The Real" in 2013, but Go2Man says AB started going radio silent in early 2015. The company says it fired off a letter about the dough she owes, but she never paid.

We've reached out to Adrienne's current reps, but so far no word back.
