Comedian Terry Hodges Lawyers Screwed Me in Tucker Suit Just to Protect Netflix

10/23/2016 12:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1017_Terry-Hodges_chris_tucker_netflix_getty_tmzComedian Terry Hodges wants his double-crossing lawyers to pay for deceiving him into dropping Netflix from a major lawsuit ... according to the new lawsuit he's filing against them.

Hodges sued Netflix and Chris Tucker last year, claiming he did a ton of work for Tucker's Netflix special, but never got a dime for it. He says his lawyers had a major conflict of interest though because Netflix is one of their clients.

In docs, Hodges says "mayhem broke loose" on his legal team, and their solution was to trick him into dropping Netflix from his lawsuit to focus on Tucker. Hodges says doing this heavily damaged his case -- because Netflix has deeper pockets.

Hodges says his lawyers stopped looking out for his best interests, dropped him as a client and he ended up with zilch.

The comedian wants his ex-lawyers to fork over the big payday he should've received from Netflix.

10/22/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

KFC ripped off a woman who ordered the bountiful bucket of chicken she saw on TV, but got a measly 8-piece instead ... according to her new lawsuit.

The New York woman told us her story ... she went into a KFC and paid 20 bucks for the "Family Fill Up" deal -- expecting an overflowing feast -- but got cheated. She contacted KFC about the false advertising and a rep offered her a coupon for her troubles ... but she told them to eat it.

Instead, she wants the restaurant chain to pay her $20 MILLION ... though she admits that number might be a tad high -- for a good reason.

A KFC spokesperson tells us ... they've got this one in the bucket.

Exclusive Details

1021-Maria-Bartiromo-donald-trump-cnnWhile Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went HAM on each other during the NYC roast/charity dinner ... they were also getting upstaged by a pair of famous boobs that were expertly placed.

The Internet was rightfully distracted by Maria Bartiromo's cleavage, which was in every shot behind the candidates at the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner. Organizers of the event tell us it was no mistake the FOX Business host was umm ... prominently displayed.

We're told the 70 people on the 5-tier dais were assigned seats to balance out people from politics, media, business and philanthropy. Obviously, Maria checks the media and business boxes.

Despite all visual evidence, we're told she did NOT get the prime seat due to her fame, or her dress. Sooo ... we just got lucky.

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.

1020_Ashton_Kutcher_Charlie_Sheen_dodgers_launchWhat beef???

Charlie Sheen and Ashton Kutcher came face-to-face at Dodger Stadium Wednesday night -- but there was no rivalry, just love ... and beer.

Remember, the two got off to a rocky start when Ashton took over for Sheen on "Two and a Half Men" back in 2011 and continued to trade shots on social media until 2014. 

But last night when Ashton spotted Charlie in the good seats at the NLCS -- he went over to the star and the two bro'd out. 

We're told the interaction was short (there was a game taking place after all) but everything was friendly and positive ... except for when the Dodgers lost.

'Celeb Apprentice' Richard Hatch Trump 'Slides Up' On Women ... And Melania Knows It

10/20/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Celebrity Apprentice" contestant Richard Hatch says he witnessed Donald Trump's lewd conduct with women repeatedly, and anyone claiming differently -- including his family -- is full of it.

Hatch, who famously won the first "Survivor" crown before working closely with Donald on 'Apprentice' ... says the boss made a habit of getting close to women as soon as they walked in the room. He adds ... Trump never took the hint either when they'd try to shake him.

Richard says he didn't witness the incident recently reported about Gary Busey allegedly groping a female staffer while Trump laughed. But he says he wouldn't be surprised if Donald and producers looked the other way, since they loved having his "crazy" on the show.

He also says Melania claiming others are "egging on" Trump's behavior ... is pure fantasy.

Melania Trump Don't Believe All These Women

10/18/2016 6:07 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Melania Trump went on the offensive Tuesday, saying the women who are accusing her husband of sexual assault should be viewed with great suspicion, and it's all about timing.

Melania appeared on "Fox and Friends" and said if these accusers are real, they should prosecute their claims in a court of law, not on CNN 3 weeks before the election.

She says she was profoundly hurt by false reports she was an escort. And she thinks her husband was goaded by Billy Bush and Howard Stern.
