Kylie just posted the shot of Bruce, circa 1980, showing off his Olympic Gold medal winning abs and legs. She captioned it ... "daddy throwback. #Tonight #DianeSawyer #ABC #love" -- so she's clearly reminding her 21.5 million followers to tune in for the special.

Karrueche Tran

After One Near-Emmy Nom

... I Wanna Be The Next Halle Berry

4/24/2015 9:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Gotta hand it to Karrueche Tran ... girl dreams big -- on the heels of getting a tiny taste of Hollywood's award season she's already eyeing an Oscar-winning career.

Karrueche was leaving a party for "The Bay" -- the online soap opera she's on, which just got a Daytime Emmy nomination -- and we asked where she saw her career going.

KT replied, "I wanna be like Halle Berry."

Mind you, Karrueche did NOT get an Emmy nomination, only the show did -- still that's not stopping her from aiming high. And this is weird ... but Karrueche's not even sure Halle's her fave actress.

Check out who's in the running.

According to his rep, Dalton -- who also played young Harry in "Dumb and Dumber To" -- was a passenger in his friend's car late Saturday night in Katy, Texas ... when another vehicle t-boned them. 17-year-old Dalton shattered his hip/pelvis and his femur. He also suffered horrific cuts to his face, and some serious eye trauma.

The damage was so bad, doctors had to reconstruct the right side of his face and remove glass from his eye but we're told his vision will recover. Police arrested the alleged drunk driver and as of now, he's currently still in jail.

Bruce Jenner

Journey in Progress

4/23/2015 6:57 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Bruce Jenner is making a lot of decisions these days, but it's not as if he knows where he'll end up.

ABC released a new promo for the Diane Sawyer special Friday night, and this time you get a sense of Bruce's journey.  

Although it's short, it's interesting that Bruce doesn't see a clear end game.

Mila Kunis

That Ukrainian Chick's Pollo Loco!!!

4/22/2015 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mila Kunis is calling chickens**t on the Ukrainian woman who claims the actress stole her beloved chicken, Doggie, a quarter century ago back in the old country.

With a little prompting from Ashton Kutcher, Mila says she was "devastated," and "weeping" after finding out Kristina Karo was suing her for $5,000 for emotional distress and therapy bills.

Mila and Ashton hilariously question the timing ... Karo is filing suit as she tries to hawk a music video.

For her part, Mila's contemplating a countersuit because the music video 'burned her eyes and hurt her body.'

If the judge would make the countersuit a class action, we'll gladly join.

By the way ... you should check out Karo on TMZ Live, unless you're chicken.
