Gretl Von Trapp from the original "The Sound of Music" movie was left "mystified and disappointed" after last night's live remake on NBC ... and says Carrie Underwood TOTALLY BOMBED!!
Gretl a.k.a. Kym Karath met up with former co-star Charmian Carr (Liesl Von Trapp) to watch the special last night ... but their excitement deflated once "Sound" started.
During the special Kym tweeted, "Mystified & disappointed so far by SOM special. So far only happy with Stephen Moyer" ... then followed up by saying, "Must admit some scenes are actually painful to watch."
That's when Karath kicked things up a notch by roasting Underwood's performance adding, "Love Carrie Underwood but this role is just not right for her. She is lovely her voice is beautiful but acting is wrong."
For what it's worth ... the special brought in HUGE ratings for NBC with 18.5 million viewers.
HUGE FIGHT BREAKS OUT
... at NYC Premiere Party
12/6/2013 6:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Here's a shocker ... there was a huge fight at the "Mob Wives" premiere party in NYC last night -- with flying bottles, police and broken bones, TMZ has learned.
Sources involved with the situation tell TMZ ... it all started when the BF of new cast member Natalie Guercio (pictured below) got into a verbal argument with another partygoer ... and things quickly escalated.
We're told more than ten people started fighting in the middle of the venue ... and multiple sources tell us glass bottles were fired across the party.
One source tells us one of the partygoers suffered a broken ankle in the melee ... but we haven't been able to confirm that. We do know one person was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment.
Law enforcement tells us ... someone called police around 10:48 PM ... but by the time cops arrived, the fight was over.
FYI -- the whole thing went down at Greenhouse ... which is located in the same building where the Chris Brown vs. Drake bottle-smashing brawl broke out back in 2012.
My Ass Says That Crappy Sofa's Gotta Go
12/5/2013 7:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Lindsay Lohan won't put her ass on just any piece of furniture ... that's why she packed up her crappy old sofa and banished it from her swanky NYC apartment.
A moving truck and crew pulled up to Lilo's chi-chi SoHo crib yesterday -- which led to speculation she was moving out -- but sources tell us they were simply there to load up the old couch and deliver a brand spankin' new one.
Sources say Lindsay's been living in the $16,000 a month pad while shooting her docu-series for Oprah Winfrey's cable network -- so the apartment doubles as a set for the show.
We're told ... Lindsay's locked into a 2-year lease on the place ... so she might as well get comfortable.
I'm Turning 90
And I Could STILL Beat Adam Sandler's Ass!!
12/5/2013 6:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Price is Right" legend Bob Barker is turning the big 9-0 next week ... but he tells TMZ, despite his age, he could still put a serious hurtin' on Adam Sandler.
Barker went out to a pre-bday dinner at Antonio's Restaurant on Melrose last night and told us he's excited about entering his 10th decade ... "I only have to wait ten years and I'll be 100!"
Bob says this birthday is extra special because, "It takes a long time to become 90."
And even though he says he only feels 85, Barker insists he could still recreate that great fight scene from "Happy Gilmore" ... telling us Adam couldn't even take Regis Philbin!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOB ... and remember to have your pets spayed or neutered.
Me and My Hubby Want Kids
... and I Want Some POWER!!
12/5/2013 12:55 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sam Champion is leaving ABC's "Good Morning America" partly because he and his hubby want to start a family and partly because of his thirst to become a honcho ... ABC sources tell TMZ.
Our sources ... who are extremely familiar with the situation ... say Sam has been chronically unhappy at GMA. We're told he wanted his own show -- badly-- but ABC execs weren't biting.
So, Sam jumped to the Weather Channel (which is co-owned by NBC), where he will anchor the network's new flagship morning show and also serve as managing editor.
Our sources say Sam wanted to be the one who replaced Larry King at CNN and he was shocked when he wasn't tapped. As one source put it, "Sam loves power, and becoming managing editor (of the Weather Channel) gives him that."
Oh, by the way, our NBC sources say Al Roker -- NOT a Sam fan -- is "pissed" his Weather Channel show will be Sam's lead-in.
Another reason Sam bailed from GMA is that he and his husband want kids and the hubby refuses to leave Florida (GMA is in NYC).
We're told Sam will be spending about half his time in Miami so the kids will know his face in person and not just on the tube. As for moolah, we're told its a lateral move. Our sources say Sam was pulling in around $2.5 mil at GMA and he'll be making around the same at the Weather Channel.
$2.5 mil for weather ... now THAT'S making it rain!!!
So Long Trophy Wife ...
Husband Files for Divorce
12/3/2013 11:41 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Trophy Wife" star Malin Akerman is on the fast track to becoming a Trophy Divorcee -- TMZ has learned, her husband has filed for divorce.
Roberto Zincone filed the docs in L.A. the day before Thanksgiving.
The couple announced they were separating just one day prior -- a mere 7 months after Malin gave birth to their son Sebastian -- and immediately, everyone assumed Malin would be the one filing the papers because ... let's face it, she's the hot one.
So the fact that Roberto filed is pretty shocking.
Malin and Roberto -- who played the drums in Malin's old band The Petalstones -- got married in 2007 in Italy ... but now, finito.
I've Got A PIMPED OUT GIFT
for My Ex-Wife's Baby
12/3/2013 8:56 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Former NFL star Chad Johnson tells TMZ Sports ... he's so PUMPED his ex-wife Evelyn Lozada is pregnant with another dude's child, he's already picked out a very stylish and expensive gift for the kid.
As we reported ... Lozada is 6-months preggers but she's keeping the identity of the sperm provider a secret.
Still, Chad tells us ... "[I'm] super happy for her, I will always love her and wish her nothing but the best. I have unisex Louboutin infant spikes ready as my gift."
Jock translation -- when Chad says "spikes," he doesn't mean cleats ... he's referring to the Louboutin's signature rhinestone look.
As far as Chad's relationship with the "Basketball Wives" star, which ended after a domestic violence incident -- Johnson says, "No communication with her in over a year and the father doesn’t matter, I just need to style and dress the baby.”
'Wheel Of Fortune'
We Feel TERRIBLE About Last Night's 'Fast & Furious' Puzzle
12/3/2013 7:28 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
File this one under: OOOPS.
"Wheel of Fortune" aired an episode last night that featured a puzzle with the answer "The Fast and the Furious" ... just days after Paul Walker died ... and now the show is in full spin mode.
During the show, producers ran a crawl on the top of the screen that read, "This episode was taped a few weeks ago, prior to the tragic passing of 'The Fast and the Furious' actor Paul Walker."
After the show aired, Pat Sajak tweeted, "Feel terrible about timing of 'Fast & Furious' puzzle tonight. Taped long ago & went out to 200 local stations days ago."
Still, it's unclear why producers didn't simply pull the episode to run at a later date.
Anchors Real Newscast
As Ron Burgundy (Don't Act Like You're Not Impressed)
12/1/2013 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Anchorman 2" didn't need ridiculous promotional idea #4,762 -- but thank God they did it otherwise we wouldn't have seen Will Ferrell/Ron Burgundy attempt to anchor a real life newscast in North Dakota.
Ron co-anchored the evening news on KXMB in Bismarck, ND on Saturday with Amber Schatz ... and it is freakin' hysterical.
Not sure what's funnier -- Ferrell attempting to pull off annoying anchor banter with an actual anchor ... or Amber, the sports guy, and the weather guy attempting to hold back their laughter.
Make sure you watch Ron and the Emmy award winning KX news team sign off ... it's world class awkwardness -- and definitely could've used an ovary punch.

... And It Hurt A LOT!!
11/30/2013 9:49 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Sharon Osbourne runs a tight ship when it comes to her lady parts -- and is proudly admitting getting "excruciating" plastic surgery on her vagina ... all for Ozzy Osbourne.

As for the results -- you gotta hear Sharon's explanation as to why it was all worth it ... at least for Ozzy.
Designer vaginas -- by vaginaplasty and labiaplasty -- have become all the rage ... and not just in Beverly Hills.
As we first reported ... Anthony Wiener's sexting buddy Sydney Leathers got snipped and plans to auction off her spare labia bits.
Good luck working up an appetite today.

"Cheers" star John Ratzenberger -- who played mailman Cliff Clavin on the show -- is 100% on board for a reunion show ... along with the rest of the cast ... but there's one thing holding up the entire operation.
Ratzenberger was out in L.A. this week when we asked about rumors the "Cheers" cast would be reuniting for a TV special.
John tells us, the cast is already fired up about the possibility ... but a reunion show would have to overcome one major hurdle first. Watch the clip to see what's holding it all back.

11/28/2013 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Charlie Sheen single-handedly organized and paid for a cancer patient's greatest wish -- to hang with the actor.
Marion Minchuk is a cancer patient who has been told he has a month to live. Marion got in touch with Charlie's people and asked if there was any way he could meet him before he died.
Charlie invited Marion to L.A. ... he lives in Arizona. Charlie paid for 3 first class tickets -- for Marion, his GF and his nurse. He put them up at the Presidential Suite and the Universal Hilton.
Charlie took the 3 to the set of "Anger Management" where Marion got to sit in Charlie's chair -- it's a thing on the show.
Charlie then took Marion to his home, where a chef made lunch for the group and they went to the screening room to watch "Gravity."
Charlie signed an "Anger Management" script and signed a DVD of "Wall Street."
Marion was beyond excited.
