Scott Baio's Costar Josie Davis Denies Nicole Eggert's Sexual Assault Claims

4/19/2018 6:04 PM PDT

Scott Baio's getting some reinforcement from former costar Josie Davis over claims made by Nicole Eggert saying Scott forced Josie to remove her pants when she was just 13.

Eggert was going back and forth with Baio fans on Twitter Wednesday, and at one point said, "Ask Scott Baio why he demanded Josie Davis pull her pants down when she was 13..." Eggert later deleted the tweet but not before Davis got wind of it.

Josie -- who was on "Charles in Charge" -- just came to Scott's defense, calling the allegation completely false. She continues, "I only had a positive and professional relationship with him."

A post shared by JOSIE DAVIS (@josiedavis) on

Eggerts new claims are among a string of bad blood between the two. Most recently, Nicole, Alexander Polinksy and attorney Lisa Bloom held a press conference where Polinsky claimed Scott had exposed himself and called Polinsky a "f****t" when he was just 11 years old. 

Scott's rep, Brian Glicklich tells us, "From the beginning, Nicole's inconsistent stories have proven her claims to be untrue. Now she has tripped over her words once again, and it is time to recognize this charade for what it is. Scott is profoundly grateful to Josie Davis for her integrity and decency."

Ex-WWE superstar Vader is doing so well after his open-heart surgery in March, he's showing off the scar ... and even cracking jokes about it!

Amanda Bynes Furious w/ Twitter and Instagram ... Take Down Fake 'Broke' Accounts!!!

4/11/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Amanda Bynes is waging war with Twitter and Instagram ... accusing the social media giants of allowing impersonator accounts to claim she's too broke to buy her meds and needs fans to wire her money.

Amanda's attorney, Tamar Arminak, tells TMZ ... she's sent multiple legal letters demanding Twitter shut down "@persianLA27" and Instagram remove "@alb4386" because they impersonate Amanda ... telling fans she's short on money and friends refuse to help her.

The accounts are private but we've obtained a screen shot of a recent IG post claiming she's $63 short from buying meds and begs fans to Venmo her the dough.

The fake Twitter account -- with more than 24k followers -- had numerous replies from fans saying "Amanda" deserves to get money that's owed to her "especially if it's court-ordered." 

Tamar says they've been fighting Twitter now for years to remove the account ... Amanda's verified account posted in 2016 telling her followers not to believe the impostors, and then again last year, calling out the fake account for saying she's pregnant and married.

What's more ... Tamar -- who thinks the same person's behind both accounts -- claims Twitter told her the account's a parody and therefore doesn't violate rules. She claims IG told her it doesn't violate their policy and offered no further explanation.

For the record -- Tamar says Amanda's financially well, thriving in fashion school and in a much better place following her 2014 health scare.

We've reached out to Twitter, Instagram and Venmo for comment ... so far no word back.

John Barrowman was fuming after claiming he tried to help out a homeless guy in a Target store and was disciplined by employees.

Barrowman was at the Target in West Hollywood Thursday when he claims a homeless man approached him asking John if he could buy an $8 t-shirt for him. John says he was happy to help and also picked up a grooming kit, $40 gift card and other items for the man.

The "Arrow" actor claims he was approached by store employees at checkout who told him it was illegal to purchase items for the homeless in their store. Furious, John left the store.

John reached out to Target on Twitter, they replied, "We’re very sorry for the experience you had at the LA Target store.

David Hogg Ingraham's Apology Is Fake ... Just For Advertisers' Sake

3/29/2018 1:40 PM PDT
Breaking News

David Hogg is basically telling Fox News host Laura Ingraham to take her apology and shove it ... or, at the very least, make it more sincere.

The Parkland, FL teen just fired back at Ingraham saying she's sorry for calling Hogg a whiner over his college rejections. Hogg thinks her mea culpa was done merely "to save your advertisers" ... and it's not good enough for him.

Hogg says, "I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I in this fight."

The father of a Marjory Stoneman Douglas student who was killed was first to blast Ingraham for her apology, and David co-signed.

As we reported, multiple advertisers on Ingraham's Fox News show -- including TripAdvisor, Nestle and Wayfair -- have pulled their spots after Hogg called for a boycott of her show.

Laura Ingraham Advertisers Drop Show For Mocking of David Hogg

3/29/2018 10:11 AM PDT
Breaking News

Laura Ingraham's show is taking a hit for her going after Parkland leader David Hogg ... TMZ has learned.

The FOX News host has lost the backing of TripAdvisor, a key advertiser on her show. The move comes on the heels of what some feel was Ingraham cyberbullying 17-year-old Hogg. A TridAdvisor rep tells us ... it doesn't condone her inappropriate comments, adding, "In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency."

In the more bad news department, for Ingraham ... the pet food line Nutrish, owned by Rachael Ray, also announced Thursday it's pulling ads from her show.

As we reported ... Hogg called for a boycott of Ingraham on the heels of the anchor tweeting Hogg whined about getting rejected by 4 colleges, and called out specific companies like TripAdvisor, AT&T and Hulu asking why they support cyberbullying.

For the record -- Hogg was not whining.

7:10 PM PT -- More companies have announced they're pulling ads from Ingraham's show, including Johnson & Johnson, Stitch Fix, Hulu, Joseph A. Banks, Wayfair, Nestle and Expedia.

10:20 AM PT -- Laura's now apologizing for "any upset or hurt my tweet caused [David] or any of the brave victims of Parkland."

Chrissy Teigen I Know Who Bit Beyonce, But ... I Love Her Too Much to Say

3/27/2018 10:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chrissy Teigen knows who bit Beyonce on the face but she's not ready to give up the culprit just yet ... out of love.

Chrissy's been dropping more than a few hints she knows who dunnit, ever since Tiffany Haddish recounted the story of an actress daring to nibble on Queen Bey's face during a party in December.

We asked Chrissy for a couple of hints Tuesday outside 30 Rock in NYC ... and she was wary of giving the Beyhive too much info to close in on the suspect. Plus, she loves Bey AND the biter!

As Tiffany tells it, Beyonce remained calm because she thought the actress was "on drugs" -- which might explain why no one has copped to it.

We threw a couple names out at Chrissy and, based on her reaction, we're gonna scratch Jennifer Lawrence off the list of possible perps. Unless ...

Donald Trump I Could Kick Joe Biden's Ass in a Fight!!!

3/22/2018 5:59 AM PDT
Breaking News

Donald Trump apparently can't figure out when someone is clearly joking, because he took Joe Biden's sardonic, high school-like pugilistic challenge as serious, and the President of the United States just responded by saying he could kick the former Veep's ass.

Biden joked Tuesday at the University of Miami, "If we were in high school, I'd take him behind the gym and beat the hell out of him," adding, "Any guy that talked that way was usually the fattest, ugliest S.O.B. in the room."

Trump just went nuts on his social media platform of choice, firing back, "Crazy Joe Biden is trying to act like a tough guy. Actually, he is weak, both mentally and physically, and yet he threatens me, for the second time, with physical assault."

But that wasn't the end ... get this: "He doesn't know me, but he would go down fast and hard, crying all the way. Don't threaten people Joe!"

Unreal.

Senator Tim Kaine Quit Acting Guilty, Mr. President ... Mueller Attacks Not Helpin'

3/20/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hillary Clinton's ex-running mate, Tim Kaine, says Donald Trump should probably stop attacking Special Counsel Robert Mueller ... 'cause appearances (of guilt) are everything.

We got the Virginia Senator Monday in D.C., where we asked what he made of Trump's recent flurry of gripes about Mueller's Russia investigation being nothing but a "WITCH HUNT!" that'll supposedly show "NO COLLUSION!" between 45's campaign and ol' Vlad.

Kaine says Trump's clearly nervous about something, and he's not doing a very good job at keeping his poker face intact under pressure from the Special Counsel's office.

More importantly ... he says if Trump truly isn't guilty of wrongdoing, why the big show? Sounds like a classic case of "If the tweet fits" ... according to Tim, anyway. 

He's also got a message for the recently fired Andrew McCabe ... not hiring.

Jenelle Evans Husband Ducks LGBT Apology ... Gays Aren't in MY Life!!!

3/15/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Teen Mom 2" star Jenelle Evans' husband is pleading ignorance, saying he doesn't even know what LGBT means ... so how could he possibly say he's sorry to the community?

We got David Eason and Jenelle Wednesday at LAX, and he said he doesn't "owe" anyone an apology. As we reported, his anti-LGBT comments on social media last month led to MTV firing him. 

It's interesting ... instead of using the ole "I have gay friends" excuse, David's saying the exact opposite -- that he doesn't know ANY gays and therefore, doesn't focus on their issues. For what it's worth, he attempted, sorta, to say sorry to "gay people or whatever."

As for MTV firing him -- David ain't buying it. He claims he wasn't canned, despite MTV saying he was, and he has a few words for the network's social media team. 

What's that thing about a river in Egypt?

Kim Zolciak called the cops Wednesday morning after an alleged burglar broke into her daughter's car at their home ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with Milton PD in Georgia tell TMZ ... police responded to a call from Kim at her house saying she believed one of their cars had been broken into. Sources close to the 'Real Housewife' tell us it was actually Brielle's car ... and Brielle's purse and wallet got jacked.

She tweeted out, "Hey you loser we got your ass on camera stealing our sh*t! You are a dumb f**k!!"
