2/9/2016 4:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0209-sheila-family-feud-wrong-answers-mother-nana-FREMANTLE-MEDIA-01The "Family Feud" contestant Steve Harvey ripped for delivering the "worst answer ever" ... says she's positive she's NOT the worst -- although proving it might be difficult.

Sheila Patterson tells TMZ ... her phone's been ringing off the hook since Steve posted a clip of her multiple, hysterical attempts to answer, "What's another way people say mother?"

The clip of Sheila trying to pass off previous answers by changing inflection or adding a Spanish accent has gone viral. She admits she cracked under the pressure of being in front of a live audience.

But as a longtime fan of the show, she insists she's seen much worse responses. We asked her to give us an example ... Sheila drew a blank.

Must be her thing.

EXCLUSIVE

Eddie George is a master thespian -- so, with O.J. Simpson back in the news, we had to ask ... how did O.J. measure up as an actor???

The answer, according to George ... dude, had real potential! 

Besides starring in 3 'Naked Gun' movies -- which people really liked him in -- Simpson also had roles in some big projects like "Roots" and "The Towering Inferno."

But that was before he ... ya know ... killed two people. 

As for Eddie, he's blowing up as an actor -- starring as the lead in "Chicago" on Broadway ... but telling TMZ Sports he's got big dreams to star in some huge TV shows one day. Check out the clip.

2/9/2016 1:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

020916-taryn-manning-tmzTaryn Manning's latest legal showdown with her ex-friend and makeup artist came to an abrupt ending in an L.A. courtroom.

Taryn's accuser, Holly Hartman, did not show up for Tuesday's hearing where she was attempting to get a restraining order against Taryn -- so the judge dismissed the case. 

Hartman had claimed the "Orange is the New Black" star brutally attacked her last year in New York City. Taryn denies the attack, saying she's actually the victim and is strongly considering legal action against Hartman.

Stay tuned. 

Amy Robach Scored Giudice Sit Down Over Big Dogs ... Sorry, Robin & George

2/8/2016 4:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-amy-robach-teresa-giudice-TMZ-GETTY-01Robin Roberts and George Stephanopoulos get all the anchor shine, but news reader Amy Robach snatched the big Teresa Giudice interview away from her GMA colleagues.

TMZ has learned Robach nailed the 'RHONJ' star's first post-prison sit down -- a big get for sweeps, which ABC's news hounds had to be dying to get. It's the kinda thing Barbara Walters and Diane Sawyer used to battle over.

Our sources tell us Amy got the nod based on her history with Giudice -- and in fact, the ex-con laid down the law ... saying it had to be Robach or the interview was off.

Amy first interviewed her in 2014, and we're told Giudice liked that one enough to come back for more. The full interview airs Tuesday morning, but GMA already released a clip of Giudice talking about her finances.

Taryn Manning Suing New York City ... Cops Had No Right To Bust Me!

2/8/2016 1:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0208-taryn-manning-TMZ-01"Orange Is the New Black" star Taryn Manning is suing the Big Apple for arresting her based on accusations from a woman previously busted for stalking her.

Taryn was busted in November 2014 for violating a restraining order by allegedly sending threatening texts to her former pal Jeanine Heller. Jeanine told cops one of the messages said, "I will kill you, bitch."

Taryn says she didn't dodge the law ... in fact she and her attorney went to cops to explain Jeanine's allegations were false and this was really a case of Jeanine stalking Taryn. Cops didn't budge, cuffing her and putting her in a holding cell for about 3.5 hours ... according to Taryn.

She claims the arrest was eventually voided, but the damage is done as far as Taryn's concerned. She's suing the city for false arrest and imprisonment ... and wants damages, aka money.

Prius Super Bowl Ad Cops Call BS ... That Thing Will NEVER Outrun Us!

2/8/2016 8:57 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

That Prius Super Bowl commercial rubbed cops the wrong way -- not because it made high speed chases look like good, clean fun ... but because it's a big fat lie!

Several law enforcement sources tell us the Prius spot was hysterically unrealistic. One source said, "Loved it, funny as hell ... like a Prius is going to outrun anything."

Other reviews included:
- "overdone"
- "silly"
- "you can't outrun a helicopter"

They've got a point. The new Prius 4 tops out around 105 mph, while a police cruiser can do at least 120 mph -- and their 0-60 times are a laughable 10.5 seconds compared to 6 flat.

Now, a few sources were concerned about the ad's overall message, saying ... "I had to tell my kids running from cops is a bad thing." But the overall take on Prius' attempt to look worthy of a felony -- "goobery and dumb."

Nicole Brown Simpson Murder Home Swarmed by Looky-Loos After 'People v. O.J. Simpson' Premiere

2/8/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0205_nicole-simpson-house-1994-apTurns out not everyone's a fan of the new FX series 'The People v. O.J. Simpson.'

Brentwood residents tell us the show has reignited interest in the Bundy site where Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman were murdered.  

One neighbor -- who lives next door -- told us there's been a significant increase in foot and vehicle traffic on Bundy and in the alley behind the condo where the murderer made his escape.

We're told the 4 bedroom condo hasn't been significantly renovated since the murders -- the biggest change -- the address. It's no longer 875.

The property was empty for 2 years after Nicole's death. It sold in 1997 for $595,000 and again in 2006 for $1.7 million.

EXCLUSIVE

Rose McGowan is pulling the plug on her marriage ... filing for divorce.

According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Rose cites the boilerplate "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending her 2  year marriage to David Leavitt, who works as a visual artist.

The couple had no kids and we don't know if there's a prenup. Rose's net worth is reportedly around $18 mil.  

The 42-year-old actress is asking the judge to reject any claim for spousal support.

It looks like there won't be much of a fight, because the papers indicate there will be a "stipulated judgment," which sounds like a settlement between the 2 of them.
