Someone's probably getting FIRED at the Daytime Emmys this morning ... because when Aisha Tyler went on stage to present her award, someone gave her the WRONG ENVELOPE!!!
Aisha's reaction when she opens the envelope is priceless -- because she quickly realizes the name printed inside wasn't even nominated in the Best Talk Show category.
What ensues is pure live TV gold ... with Aisha vamping like a pro while the producers scrambled to get her the correct envelope.
Ya gotta watch the clip.
The question is ...
Judge Nene Leakes asked Marissa Powell about women in the workplace and equal pay -- which sent 21-year-old Miss Utah into a tailspin of a reply.
She starts out kinda strong, saying ... "I think we can relate this back to education, and how we are continuing to try to strive to ... " -- and then the fail begins.
Pretty sure you can see the smoke coming out of her ears as the implosion begins.
She's really pretty though.
We're told it all started when Selma complained to "AM" execs that Charlie was a menace to work with -- claiming he's late all the time and has a shoddy work ethic.
Problem is ... the actor found out about it and was super pissed. We're told Charlie felt Selma was out of line considering he's the star of the show. And he specifically referenced himself learning 40 pages of lines per episode compared to her 2.
But sources close to Sheen tell us the actor did more than just complain ... he told everyone HE FIRED SELMA altogether -- although it's unclear how official it was.
Charlie then made it clear to "AM" honchos ... if Selma shows up to set Monday -- when the show is scheduled to shoot -- he'll refuse to work.
And there's this ... we're told Charlie now wants to extend an offer to Mila Kunis (a.k.a. Ashton Kutcher's GF) for a 10 episode arch ... at $1 MILLION per episode.
As for the network honchos ... our sources say the execs are hoping it will all blow over. But we're told Charlie specifically asked FX to support him in his decision. Calls to Selma's people were not returned.
Now here they are in happier (scripted) times ...
Former NBA star Allen Iverson has abducted his own children ... so says his ex-wife, and now she's begging the court to force Allen to give them back.
Tawanna Iverson just filed legal docs, claiming Allen recently asked for permission to take their five kids on a short vacation to Charlotte, NC from May 22nd-May 26th (and Tawanna agreed) but when May 26th rolled around, the children hadn't been returned.
The kids range in age from 3 to 16 years old.
In the docs, Tawanna says she tried to set up an exchange on June 4th at a neutral location -- a nearby Target store -- but A.I. never showed up.
Tawanna -- who has sole legal and primary physical custody of their children -- now believes Allen never took their kids to Charlotte at all ... and is currently keeping them at a Sheraton hotel in Georgia.
Tawanna claims she's especially concerned because Allen's an alcoholic who drinks around their kids.
She now wants the court to force him to return the kids ... and punish him as well, even suggesting the judge lock him up in jail.
It's not the first time she's tried to get Iverson locked up ... she had previously begged the court to send him to the pokey for allegedly not paying more than $40,000 in child support.
Allen has filed legal docs in which he denies all of his ex-wife's allegations.
George Lucas thinks he won an "NCAA" award for his movie "Red Tails" ... which is incredible since he neither rebounds nor shoots well from the paint.
Lucas was accepting his first Emmy for his animated series "Star Wars: Clone Wars" ... when he TRIED to reference the NAACP award he won earlier this year for his WWII drama about the Tuskegee Airmen.
He ended up making a worse mistake than "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull."
We broke the story ... a sex tape featuring the "Girls Gone Wild" honcho and his smoking hot girlfriend was being shopped to various media outlets. Francis had threatened to sue everyone and their mother over the tape, claiming it was stolen from his GF's iPad.
But Francis can call off his legal pit bulls (for a change) ... thanks to a HUUUUGE favor from Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch.
Turns out, the two porn moguls are friends (same porny circles) ... and when the person selling the tape went to Vivid, Steve decided to do Francis a solid and snatched it off the market (price: unknown).
Hirsch then turned around and gave all of the footage to Joe, along with the promise he'd never release the tape.
As for why the porn kings didn't involve police ... Hirsch told us, "Because of the time-sensitive nature of the situation I made a decision to expedite the process and return the movie to its original owner."
TMZ reached out to Francis ... he had no comment.
Most 17-year-olds feel pressure to get into a good college, but not Abigail Breslin ... the teenage A-lister has $100,000 riding on whether or not she can nab an Academy Award from her upcoming flick.
According to Abigail's minor's contract -- recently obtained by TMZ -- the lil star was paid $75,000 for two weeks worth of work on a film called "August: Osage County" shot last fall. It also stars Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.
Now here's the interesting part ... in AB's contract a special clause was added just for awards ... which states if Abigail wins the Golden Globe for best supporting actress she nabs a $50,000 bonus.
There's more ... if Abigail wins an Oscar she gets ANOTHER $50,000. And if she wins both, they throw her the whole shebang. Plus all that other stuff like: respect, honor, esteem, ... yadda, yadda.
Of course with moves like these, it's in the bag ...
Here's the 26-year-old "Lois and Clark" actor back in 1993 (left) -- and twenty years later, the 46-year-old "Ripley's Believe It or Not" host at the Philly Comic-con last month (right).
Dude looks great -- question is ...
"Rage Against the Machine" drummer (and co-founder) Bradley Wilk has a solo in his future ... 'cause his wife just filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.
Wilk -- who's also beaten the skins for Audioslave and Black Sabbath -- had separated from wife Selene Vigil-Wilk just last Friday ... and 3 days later, she filed the paperwork in L.A. County Superior Court.
According to the documents, obtained by TMZ, the two tied the knot back in 2005 -- and have 2 young children together.
Selene is asking for joint legal custody ... but she wants primary physical, probably because he's a famous rock star ... and rock stars often go on the road. She's also asking for spousal support.
Calls to Wilk have not been returned.
Kim Kardashian's new baby girl is gonna have a HUGE HEAD ... just like her superstar dad Kanye West ... so says Kim K's BFF Jonathan Cheban.
Jonathan -- who pops in and out of various Kardashian reality shows -- was out in LA last night just hours after Kim K gave birth and our photog asked the question on everyone's mind ... will baby Kimye end up with a giant Kanye-sized melon?
For anyone who knows who Kanye West is ... that question has two possible meanings (think about it). Got it. Good.
The crazy part is ... Jonathan actually answered the question -- and it's pretty great.
Now, here's Kanye's head in action ...
Rachel Uchitel and hubby Matt Hahn decided to get divorced after an argument erupted over a bungled trip to the grocery store which then triggered allegations of kidnapping. We will explain.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... the morning Rachel called the cops on Matt -- she woke up only to learn her hubby hadn't gone to the grocery store like he had promised. So Rachel had to schlep to the store with baby Wyatt and the family dog. And when she got back, all hell broke loose ... name-calling on Matt's part and a little slapping on Rachel's.
We're told Matt called her a "dictator" for ordering him to perform chores on her timeline. It escalated to the point Rachel called 911, pleading with cops to eject Matt from the house.
When the cops wouldn't give Rachel what she wanted, Tiger's ex executed Plan B. She took her 1-year-old daughter to their hoity-toity weekend home in Connecticut and stayed for 5 days. That set Matt off, alleging she kidnapped their kid.
Matt moved out of their NYC, $8,000-a-month rental, and Rachel returned with Wyatt.
As TMZ first reported ... Matt alleged "cruel and inhumane treatment" in filing for divorce, but now it looks like they're ending the marriage peacefully.
Like we said ... rich people's problems.
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Jacqueline Laurita will NOT have to live in a cardboard box ... TMZ has learned she struck a deal with her bank and SAVED her mansion from foreclosure!
TMZ broke the story ... the reality TV star was sued by Hudson City Savings earlier this year. The bank claimed JL missed a mortgage payment on her 5,600-square-foot crib -- a cool $10,175.
Here's the kicker ... under the housewife's contract, one missed payment meant the bank could demand the entire balance owed, which it did. When JL couldn't cough it up ... HCS asked to foreclose.
But good news ... Jacqueline managed to strike a deal with the bank outside of court, and in return Hudson City Savings dropped the suit. The case was dismissed on April 17.
Now if only that little tax problem could go away ...
