Joanna Cassidy is best known for playing the server, sidekick and love interest Delores -- opposite Bob Hoskins as Eddie Valiant -- in the 1988 cartoon mashup "Who Framed Roger Rabbit." Guess what she looks like now!
I Got a House Party Tattoo ...
For My Dead Dog
7/6/2014 2:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Miley Cyrus will never forget her deceased dog ... because it's now emblazoned on her rib cage.
Miley inked the memoriam Saturday at a house party in Los Angeles. For some reason ... her good buddy Wayne Coyne from The Flaming Lips and another friend tatted the same design in honor of Floyd -- an Alaskan Klee Kai that died when he was only 2.
Floyd's death ... along with a bad reaction to antibiotics and hard partying ... led to Miley's meltdown earlier this year.
It looks like Floyd's mug is the centerpiece of the tat with the words, "with a little help from my fwends."
We'll always remember Floyd ... because we have to now.

UFC champ Chris Weidman celebrated his big win at UFC 175 with family, friends ... and LOTS of booze!
All American hit up Surrender Nightclub in Las Vegas with 40 people in tow following his win over Lyoto Machida -- and eyewitnesses say the group drank every form of alcohol under the sun.
Weidman however stuck to vodka (gotta keep an eye on those calories.)
The middleweight champ was also happy to take pics with anyone who asked ... even though he was sporting a major shiner -- and the confetti bath looks like it was awesome!

Columbus Short was surrounded by stars after he allegedly attacked off-duty cops during a 4th of July bar fight.
TMZ broke the story ... Short made it seem he was skipping out on his bar tab at Katy Trail Ice House in Dallas ... according to eyewitnesses. A security guard confronted him and Short became loud and physical.
That's when several off-duty Dallas cops tried to calm short down and he allegedly attacked them. Short was immediately busted for public intoxication.
The pic was taken outside the bar, before Short was hauled off to jail.
Here's happy Columbus inside the bar moments before he took it in the shorts.

A great white shark attacked a swimmer in Manhattan Beach CA and it was all caught on video.
The 7-foot shark was struggling on the wrong end of a fishing line near the pier. Shortly before the attack, the fisherman tried in vain for 40 minutes to reel the shark in ... the shark was agitated when some long- distance swimmers unwittingly crossed its path.
As video rolled ... the great white attacked one of the swimmers. People on the pier where the video was shot initially didn't realize someone was injured but soon thereafter it became apparent and they screamed at the people in the water to swim for their lives.
The attack victim sustained moderate injuries to his torso and is in stable condition.
The fisherman eventually cut the line.
TMZ Sports got this video shot last month of a 6-foot great white near the shoreline of Manhattan beach, as paddle boarders circled it.
Smashes Car on Sunset Blvd.
7/6/2014 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Californication" star Madeline Zima smashed her car into another vehicle on Sunset Blvd. Saturday night.
Madeline rear-ended another car in West Hollywood. It was bad enough that Zima's car had to be towed.
No injuries to speak of.
Madeline's friends consoled her -- she was clearly shaken up. Our photog asked her what happened ... but the 28-year old wasn't in the mood to talk. Maybe that was wise ... right to remain silent and all that.
USEFUL TIDBIT: If you rear-end another car, you're pretty much screwed. No defense.
Drug Use on Trial
In Paparazzi Assault Case
7/6/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Justin Bieber acts like an animal because of massive drug abuse ... that's what the lawyer in Bieber's paparazzi assault case believes and he's dragging in Biebs' closest friends to prove it.
We've learned the lawyer repping the paparazzo who claims Bieber ordered his goons to beat him up will subpoena Lil Za, Lil Twist, Khalil, Scooter Braun and others ... and the focus will be drugs and booze.
The lawyer believes if Bieber's buds are honest ... they'll fess up about the connection between the singer's bizarre, aggressive behavior and his consumption of sizzurp, weed and alcohol.
Something interesting ... Bieber's trainer, Patrick Nilsson, made the list ... and that could backfire. Sizzurp and muscles generally don't go hand-in-hand.

The bad blood still runs deep ... Ex-N.W.A manager Jerry Heller tells TMZ it was a slap in the face to Eazy-E to shut his son out of the audition process for the upcoming movie.
Jerry was leaving Craig's restaurant in West Hollywood Saturday night ... when he acknowledged the bad blood between Dre and Eazy and suggested it might have something to do with the fact that Lil Eazy was not even allowed to audition to play his dad in the flick.
Jerry clearly took sides on who was more important to the group -- Dre or Eazy.

TNA Star Robbie E
Yoga Makes Me Fart
But It Helped Me Prep for 'Amazing Race'
7/6/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
TNA wrestler Robbie E might take the wind-relieving pose a little too literally ... 'cause even though yoga helped him prepare for the "Amazing Race" ... it turned him into a human gasbag.
Robbie and his GF Brooke Tessmacher teamed up for the CBS reality show -- which has already been shot and premieres in September -- and Robbie tells TMZ the yoga helped him get mentally and physically ready for the grueling challenges on the road.
In fact, Robbie got some support from fellow wrestlers DJ Z and Jessie Godderz who teamed up for some "broga" sessions before and after the "Race" ... where Robbie fessed up to the pose that turns him into Captain Flatulation!
Meantime, Brooke used other methods to prepare -- mainly something we like to call, "Puttin' In Twerk." Miley Cyrus would be proud ...

Bev. Hills Socialite $200K In Debt
7/6/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The high-falutin' lifestyle of Beverly Hills socialite Adam Sabbagh just came crashing down to earth -- because the dude who was once flush enough to buy David Beckham's Porsche ... just went belly up.
Sabbagh filed bankruptcy docs -- obtained by TMZ -- showing he has more than $200K in debts, and only about $4K worth of assets.
This is the same guy who famously bought Beckham's customized 911 for $227K -- and paid Tyson Beckford $25,000 to give him modeling lessons. He also claims he was once voted "Mr. Arab" ... and starred in a movie with Gary Busey -- although we can't find that credit.
It's unclear where Sabbagh got the funds to finance his lavish lifestyle ... but court docs show he ran up a $17K line of credit with American Express.
The future's not exactly looking bright for Sabbagh -- he lists his occupation as "Unemployed" ... and says his only income is a "family contribution" of $2,230/month.

Sherri Shepherd KNEW ...
She Was About to Get Canned
7/6/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
All comedians know when they're bombing, and when they're gonna get the hook ... and that's exactly how Sherri Shepherd felt at "The View" -- at least that's what her pal Sheryl Underwood TRIED to tell us.
As TMZ first reported, Sherri and Jenny McCarthy were sent packing from the daytime talker last week ... and the show is now looking for a Latina and a strong conservative female as replacements.
Sheryl -- who's got her own gig going at "The Talk" -- started to explain why Sherri's background as a standup comic helped prepare her for the the blood-letting at ABC ... and then thought twice of making the comment.
You gotta see her try to back out -- funny stuff ... though she eventually saves it with a Jay Z lyric.

Jon Bon Jovi's American looks are stuck in the '80s!
Here's a 24-year-old teased out version of the "Livin' On A Prayer" singer back in 1986 (left) and 28 years later -- the now 52-year-old father of four at a benefit in New York City earlier this year (right).
