Legendary TV actress Valerie Harper was rushed to the hospital Wednesday night in Maine ... TMZ has confirmed.

Harper was at a theater where she was getting ready to go onstage for a play, when she went unconscious.  

Someone called 911, an ambulance arrived, but by then Valerie had regained consciousness.

As for how serious ... we're told the ambulance driver did not use his siren, but obviously it's still serious.

According to the hospital, she was discharged Thursday morning.

Mariah Carey

I Used Airbnb ...

For My Sick Malibu Rental

7/30/2015 10:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0730_mariah_carey_pad_main_launchMariah Carey has proven Airbnb isn’t just for 20-year-old hipsters traveling on the cheap, but not every traveler on the Internet lodging site can afford a $10,000/night house in Malibu.

We're told Mimi used the site to rent out an awesome seaside home on Carbon Beach from movie producer Michael Lambert while she’s back in the L.A. area.

The 3,764 sq. ft. digs includes 4 beds and 4 baths, a master suite that spans the entire second floor, and a detached guest house.

Mariah will no doubt use the beach house to catch some rays until she heads out to the Holy Land for her Tel Aviv concert in August.

breaking news

0730-james-woods-tmz-01James Woods is suing a guy for something every celebrity has to deal with every day -- someone talking trash on Twitter ... and he's gunning for $10 million.

Woods is going after a guy who goes by the name of Abe List. Woods claims List trashed his good name several times -- with tweets calling him a "prick," "joke," "scum," "clown-boy" ... but crossed the line when he accused the star of being a "cocaine addict." 

It's worth noting ... List has a paltry 2,274 followers, but Woods claims his 238,932 could have seen the tweet as well. 

Woods claims his reputation was damaged to the tune of $10 mil.

Jennifer Beals

What a Feeling

For a German Shepherd in a Hot Car

7/30/2015 7:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Flashdance" star Jennifer Beals is taking heat for leaving her German Shepherd in a hot car, and the excuse is puzzling.

Beals was in the Dunbar neighborhood of Vancouver Wednesday when she left her pooch in her SUV with the window open only a crack.

A guy happened to notice just as Beals was returning to her car, and he confronted her, saying it was dangerous to leave the dog in the car with the temp at 77 degrees.

Jennifer's response ... "In Dunbar, it's ok."  

The incident was reported to the SPCA and their Chief Prevention Officer's response was even more curious: "The sun shines in Dunbar just as much as it shines everywhere else."

… In Canada

EXCLUSIVE

0729_kylie_jenner_tmzKylie Jenner's turning 18 on Aug. 10th … but a celebration in the States is problematic, so we've learned she's headed to Canada to get legally wasted!

Kylie’s throwing a rager at Beachclub Montreal. It's Canada’s answer to Ibiza … a mini party island with a beach, pool, A-list DJs and lots of booze. 

Here's the best part ... Kylie's being paid to celebrate her own birthday, and paid well ... we're told between $100k and $200k, just for showing up.

The club's owner, Olivier Primeau, is pulling out all the stops. Kylie will be choppered in, landing on a luxury boat that will dock next to a table stocked with bubbly. She'll also celebrate with a $3k cake.

That's not all that's legal in Canada at 18. Happy birthday ... Tyga.

0730-jason-alexander-mugshotJason “Jace” Alexander spent a decade directing "Law & Order" but Wednesday he was living out an episode when he was popped on child pornography charges. 

Alexander was charged with two felonies -- possessing and sharing illegal and obscene performances of sexual conduct by children under the age of 17. 

He was nabbed after an investigator downloaded child pornography off the internet and traced the file’s IP address back to Alexander’s address in New York. 

Cops searched Alexander’s home and say they found computers and external hard drives stocked with files of minors engaged in child pornography.

His bail is set at $10k. He faces 7 years if convicted.
