4/24/2018 8:29 AM PDT
Breaking News

The hero who took down the Waffle House shooter is now bringing together Hollywood liberals and famous right wing conservatives -- they've all joined forces to raise money for him! 

Jon Cryer, Kristin Davis and Busy Philipps -- along with conservative author Mike Cernovich -- have each made significant contributions to a GoFundMe page for James Shaw Jr

In fact, Davis tweeted, "I just donated and it feels good! Good to help someone who stood up and did the right thing, thank you James Shaw Jr! And I love everyone who is donating too!"

The fundraising effort was launched by journalist Yashar Ali, who says he was so inspired by Shaw's story ... he wants to raise money for a college fund for Shaw's daughter or to help him take his family on a nice vacation, whichever he chooses! 

So far, Ali has raised more than $50,000 for Shaw!!!

FYI, Shaw is a REAL LIFE superhero -- who singlehandedly charged the Waffle House gunman in Nashville and ripped away his gun, ending the killing spree. 

Other stars who have contributed ... Ike Barinholtz and Natasha Ziff.  

Donald Trump Attempt to Hold Melania's Hand Is Sad ...

4/24/2018 9:31 AM PDT

Donald Trump really wanted to get Melania to hold his hand at a White House event honoring French President Emmanuel Macron ... but man, he had to work for it. 

Trump was standing next to his wife in the Rose Garden when he tried to slickly coax her hand into his ... but what ensued was a painfully long battle of wills.

It's clear Melania was trying to avoid the hand-hold ... but Trump and his pinky finger were persistent ... eventually wearing down her defense until she submitted. 

True love, huh?

David Hogg & Cameron Kasky Prom Pose Pic was Just for Fun ... We're Not Dating

4/24/2018 9:28 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Parkland student leaders David Hogg and Cameron Kasky have nothing but love for one another, but they're not actually going to prom together ... TMZ has learned.

Cameron's tweet Monday of this photo with the caption "Prom 2018" led many to believe the 2 were announcing their prom plans ... but their parents tell us it's not true.

David's mom, Rebecca Boldrick, tells us David has another date for the prom, and the photo with Cameron was taken during a video shoot Monday for U2's RED campaign the high schoolers were working on.

Cameron's dad, Jeff Kasky, tells us ... "Cameron and David love each other very much, as do the 20 or so other kids that are part of their group, but not in a romantic type of way."

We're told Marjory Stoneman Douglas High just has a senior prom -- and Cameron's only a junior -- so while he could go if he gets invited by a senior like David ... they're just friends.

'Night Court' Star Harry Anderson Died of a Stroke Influenza & Heart Disease as Contributing Causes

4/24/2018 8:43 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Night Court" star Harry Anderson died of a stroke he apparently suffered in the night, which might've been triggered by the flu and a specific type of heart disease. 

TMZ has obtained Anderson's death certificate, which lists the actor's primary cause of death as cardioembolic cerebrovascular accident, which is a stroke that's caused by the heart pumping unwanted materials into the brain's circulation. 

The contributing causes are listed as influenza -- the flu -- and a heart disease that affects the tissue of the organ by either enlarging it or disrupting its natural motor function.

As we reported ... Anderson was found dead on arrival last week after his wife called 911. She told the operator that his body was cold, and that CPR wouldn't help. She also mentioned he'd suffered a series of strokes earlier this year.

He was 65. 

Trump to Emmanuel Macron We're Great Pals, Huh? Lemme Get That Dandruff, Bro

4/24/2018 8:42 AM PDT
Breaking News

President Trump and Emmanuel Macron are so tight, they have no problem wiping the dirt off each other's shoulder in front of cameras ... or dandruff, for that matter. 

Trump was hosting the French President and his wife, Brigitte, at the White House Tuesday for policy talks between the two countries, and at one point in the Oval Office, Trump got a little handsy with Manny ... flicking off some apparent dandruff that had built up on his jacket.

It's funny for another reason, too. DT was touting the fact that the media was reporting on his and Macron's close relationship ... which for once he said wasn't "fake news."

Hard to imagine Trump's brush-off was anything but a subtle power move. 

Of course, no meeting is complete without Trump's signature handshake ... and it appears 45 has significantly cut down on the shake's length since last year.

But, she's back now and vows to knock out even more flicks in 2018 ... including one callled "The Fellate Show."

Heeeeeeeere's Stormy!

Waffle House Offers to Pay Funeral Expenses Of Shooting Victims

4/24/2018 7:22 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Waffle House has offered to pay for the funerals of the 4 people killed in its restaurant in Tennessee over the weekend ... and will help to cover the medical expenses of those injured.

A rep for the company tells us they've reached out to the families of the victims of the attack to help in any way they can. We're told the restaurant chain has offered to pay for all funeral and medical costs associated with the attack.

Four people were killed and another 4 injured when 29-year-old Travis Reinking entered the restaurant with an AR-15 and opened fire.

WH's director of PR, Pat Warner, says the company's CEO and Senior Management team has personally visited with victims and their families to offer condolences and assistance during the difficult time.

We're told company honchos have developed a personal relationship with James Shaw Jr. -- the man responsible for disarming the gunman -- and have offered assistance to him as well.

Reinking was arrested in a wooded area Monday after more than a day on the run. His motives for carrying out the shooting are still unknown.

Kourtney Kardashian Bombarded For Selfies ... on Capitol Hill!

4/24/2018 8:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kourtney Kardashian was just like any ol' senator or congresswoman walking through the hallways of the Capitol Tuesday in a suit and on a mission to change the law ... until she was bombarded for selfies.

The eldest Kardashian didn't say much on her way to talk about regulating cosmetics and other personal care products, but couldn't resist the opportunity to get one pic in with a fan.

The 39-year-old is there with the Environmental Working Group lobbying for environmentally-friendly cosmetic products.

Gotta say Kourtney looks like she's holding her ground, so perhaps there's a future there in politics for her. Wouldn't be the first time a reality star made it far in politics.

Joey Lawrence Bankruptcy Ain't Crampin' My Style

4/24/2018 7:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joey Lawrence officially settled his bankruptcy case, but it's not hurting his game in Hollywood ... at all.

Joey, who got the bankruptcy judge's sign off 2 weeks ago, hit up Craig's restaurant in WeHo Monday night ... an expensive proposition for sure. He left in a brand new Dodge Challenger Hellcat, which retails for around $60k minimum.

It's interesting, considering Joey had a 2014 Bentley, a 2016 BMW i8 and a 2015 Ford Flex repoed.

According to the bankruptcy docs, Joey claimed he had $8k to his name in the bank and $60 in cash.

Impressive Hollywood rebound.

Rick Ross to TMZ Photog I'm Gonna Clean You Up 'Hervis' Levin, Too, Actually!

4/24/2018 7:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rick Ross does not want to be approached by scrubs in the streets, which is a lesson our camera guy -- and Harvey Levin -- might need to learn the hard way.

We got Rozay Monday leaving The London hotel in NYC, where our photog asked about how he felt about Meek Mill still being locked up despite a rallying cry from the public. Ross tells us it's BS, and that his label mate still has his support ... but then changed the subject.

The Boss calls out our guy for not having a clean shave -- but the good news is that he generously offers to hook him up with his own line of 'RICH' hair care products.

Even better news ... Rick extends his offer to our boss, 'Hervis,' whom the rap mogul says has been looking stressed as of late. You don't gotta tell us, Renzel. Also ... do it!!!!

Tracy Morgan Gets His 'Headsprung' As 'Last O.G.' is Renewed

4/24/2018 7:29 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Tracy Morgan sticks to his O.G. status on and off camera, especially when he hears his hit new show just got picked up for a new season ... queue LL Cool J slaps.

We got Tracy Monday arriving to the 'Daily Show' set in NYC, where he was scheduled to appear as one of Trevor Noah's guests. He also happened to show up hours after the news broke that his TBS comedy, "The Last O.G.," had gotten picked up for a second season. 

Call us crazy, but it sounds like Tracy knew his character, Tray, was coming back -- 'cause he was blasting LL's 2004 single, "Headsprung," out of his Rolls-Royce, which is nothing short of a party anthem. He also had on the biggest damn chain in the world.

Granted ... 2004 ain't all that old when you're talking 'O.G.' -- especially for an LL track -- but we'll cut the dude a break. Good news is good news, right?

Game 5 is Wednesday in Oklahoma City ... wonder if Mitt will fuel up the jet and keep the rivalry going?
