R.L. Stine I'm a HUGE 'Twilight' Fan ... Or Am I?

7/11/2013 1:15 PM PDT

R.L. Stine -- the mad genius behind the "Goosebumps" books -- says he LOVED the first "Twilight" book ... but not enough to pick up the second one.  Sooooo ... literary diss??

Here's the backstory ... Stine was out in NYC yesterday when the topic inevitably turned to Stephenie Meyer's vampire books.

Stine says he liked her original book, but admits he never moved on to "New Moon."

You'd think ... if a fellow best-selling author REALLY "liked" the first book of a massive series, he'd move on to the next book.  Then again ... maybe he's just really busy.

Either way ... "SAY CHEESE AND DIE" RULED!!

Ashley & Vanessa Tiny Bikini Time ... In Bali

6/20/2013 9:20 AM PDT

The sun wasn't the only thing that was hot in Bali yesterday -- Ashley Greene and Vanessa Hudgens went two pieces on the Indonesian island.

The actresses sunned themselves in barely-there bikinis while attending the Oakley Pro Bali surf competition. Ashley even took some surf lessons herself.

We'd say more ... but a picture is worth a thousand words.

Taylor Lautner Watch Me Make This Tree My Bitch

6/19/2013 5:45 PM PDT

Taylor Lautner doesn't need no stinking stunt man -- the shredded "Twilight" star can do it all himself ... including running up a tree trunk into a sick backflip. You gotta see it!

Oh, and for the 'Team Edward' dorks ... there's also a total fail on one stunt.

Jennie Garth & Peter Facinelli Divorce Final Nicest Divorce Ever

6/12/2013 11:55 AM PDT

Former "90210" star Jennie Garth is officially a single woman ... because her divorce from "Twilight" actor Peter Facinelli has been finalized -- and it's quite possibly the most amicable and novel divorce of all time.

As we reported, Garth and Facinelli pulled the plug on their marriage in 2012 after 11 years together. They have three daughters -- 15-year-old Luca Bella, 10-year-old Lola Ray, and 6-year-old Fiona Eve.

The divorce order was officially signed Tuesday -- but the real story ... Garth and Facinelli still totally trust each other -- especially in the money department.

The two have each declined spousal support.  As for the children, they're doing something pretty novel.  Jennie and Peter are funding a joint bank account for the care and education of their children.  Both parents will deposit money in equal amounts.  Each has full access to the accounts. 

They have also agreed to share 50/50 custody of their daughters and insist they don't need a formal custody arrangement -- unheard of in Hollywood.

'Go Daddy' Nerd Sorry I Was a Total Creep

6/7/2013 4:30 AM PDT

Go Daddy
honchos were ENRAGED when they saw their nerdy spokesman Jesse Heiman put the moves on a married "Twilight" actress Tuesday night -- and Heiman is begging for forgiveness.

A rep for 35-year-old Heiman -- who famously appeared in Go Daddy's Bar Refaeli-kissing Super Bowl commercial -- tells us, the Internet company was extremely upset after seeing the video TMZ posted Wednesday ...  showing Jesse awkwardly attempting to steal a kiss from Nikki Reed outside Bootsy Bellows nightclub in Hollywood.

Jesse tells us, he was ordered to cancel his appearances this week -- as well as to apologize for his uncouth behavior -- and Jesse gladly obliged.

Jesse's future with Go Daddy is unclear.

As for the video that got Jesse in trouble -- you'll have to watch that at your own risk. Seriously. It's painful.

'Twilight' Star Nikki Reed Fights Off CREEPY Kiss from 'Go Daddy' Nerd

6/5/2013 2:30 PM PDT

"Twilight" star Nikki Reed should probably invest in some mace ... 'cause it might've helped her escape the creepy clutches of the Go Daddy nerd ... who GRABBED AND PULLED HER outside an L.A. club last night in an effort to deliver a very unwanted kiss.

Reed was leaving Bootsy Bellows with her husband Paul McDonald ... when Jesse Heiman -- the guy who famously kissed Bar Refaeli in the Super Bowl ad -- darted out of the club and beelined to Nikki for a goodbye smooch.

Nikki politely tried to resist and break away ... but Heiman grabbed her arm with one hand ... and forcefully pulled her closer to him with the other ... while lunging over to press his lips against her face.

Nikki resisted ... and even vocalized her displeasure to the 35-year-old pitchman -- "You're holding me ... my husband's RIGHT THERE."

Heiman REFUSED to be denied and landed the kiss anyway ... right before Nikki managed to escape his grasp and scurry away.

Ya gotta watch the clip -- it's about as awkward as it gets.

Kristen Stewart's Mom Twilight Nightmare ... I Have NO Wolves!

5/14/2013 10:55 AM PDT
“Twilight” star Kristen Stewart’s mom says she has a crazy neighbor on her hands ... a neighbor who is allegedly harassing her and claiming that she's harboring wolves.

Jules Stewart says the beef began April 21, when the neighbor walked up her driveway.  Stewart says she ordered the 61-year-old woman off her property … and according to legal docs the two exchanged heated, vulgar words.

The neighbor, Sue Bemi, allegedly claimed Stewart's dogs were actually WOLVES.  Bemi supposedly screamed her wolves "belong in the mountains of Montana" and should be set free and she was ready to take care of business.

Stewart’s filing says after their blowup, Bemi started a campaign of harassment, regularly making “howling sounds, growls, chirps and other weird noises” ... which riled up the animals.

Bemi claims in her own handwritten legal docs Stewart herself confessed the animals were really wolves.

Stewart, a longtime Hollywood script supervisor who recently directed her first feature film “K-11,” got a restraining order this AM, ordering Bemi to say 100 yards clear of her property for 1 year.

RPatz & KStew Even Hipsters Chase After Us!

4/15/2013 5:15 AM PDT
Coachella Music Festival concert goers are too cool for school ... except when it comes to Edward Cullen and Bella Swan.

While at the annual hipster fest in the California desert this weekend, Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart tried to blend in with their fellow American Apparel clad music lovers ... but got chased down by a secret legion of closet "Twilight" fans.

Spending over $350 to melt in the sweltering heat for three days can cause people to do some really crazy things.

Ashley Greene Life Goes On After Home Inferno

4/9/2013 5:45 AM PDT

HOORAY! Ashley Greene's life hasn't completely fallen apart after her apartment was incinerated.

The actress was spotted eating lunch in West Hollywood Monday ... not far from where her condo went up in flames last month ... and she didn't look like a complete emotional wreck.

Ironically, the restaurant where she ate is called "Toast." Even Ashley has to see the humor in that.

Ashley Greene Nightmare Tenant

3/26/2013 12:15 AM PDT

Ashley Greene's condo fire was tragic
but also not totally shocking to other residents in the building, who say the actress was trouble.

Multiple sources in Ashley's West Hollywood condo building tell TMZ ... the actress was an utter nuisance -- they say her unit was a revolving door for her fellow actors, friends and others who came and went in the middle of the night. The people who lived below Ashley say there was so much commotion above them they had trouble sleeping.

On top of that, residents complained that Ashley didn't control her dogs -- which were incessant barkers. 

We're told residents complained to building management, but nothing happened.

Here's the kicker ... The owner of the unit will be fixing it up, and she says Ashley is welcome to live there again -- that's because Ashley has always paid her rent. Wow.

Ashley Greene 911 Tape 'THE BUILDING'S ON FIRE!!!'

3/25/2013 3:01 PM PDT

TMZ has just obtained the 911 call that was placed by a breathless man who repeatedly pleaded for help after Ashley Greene's apartment exploded in flames, screaming, "The building's on fire."

As we first reported, Ashley and two men were sleeping in her rental unit when the fire broke out.  Officials now say the cause of the fire was an unattended candle that torched the couch and subsequently the entire place.

One of Ashley's dogs perished in the blaze.  Her second dog was saved.

It's case closed for the Ashley Greene condo fire ... TMZ has learned, the devastating flames that ripped through the actress' L.A. apartment Friday have officially been ruled an accident.

TMZ broke the story ... the fire started when an unattended candle accidentally lit Ashley's living room couch ablaze.

Building sources tell us, at least four neighboring units were significantly damaged from the blaze.  Insurance agents are expected to stop by today to start the claims process.

As we previously reported, Greene, her boyfriend and brother were all sleeping in the condo when the fire erupted. One of Ashley's two dogs perished.
