Cruz, who has the ultimate pedigree with degrees from Harvard and Princeton, doesn't think someone's CV automatically qualifies or disqualifies them from becoming president.

EXCLUSIVE

0210_ROSIE-ODONNELL_TMZRosie O'Donnell pissed off the autism community with a joke about autistic kids, which is why they're now calling Rosie a "piece of dog s***" ... and Rosie now has regrets.

O'Donnell performed at Carolines on Broadway Sunday, where she joked that parenting her teenagers was so tough she'd trade them in for autistic triplets in an instant. 

A rep for the National Autism Association says her org is beyond offended. The rep didn't hold back, saying Rosie wasn't only "dog s***," she was mushy dog s*** on the bottom of their shoe.

The rep railed on, saying O'Donnell "crossed all lines of being a good human being to make a desperate, low-blow joke."

Rosie tells TMZ, "Although it was not my intent to hurt people, I realize I did. It was my fault." Rosie added, "I have 2 children with spectrum disorders. I'm aware of the challenges and stigma associated with autism." She also notes she's raised money and done documentaries for the autism community.

Nick Cannon got more than he bargained for when some "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" stars went on his show and one bragged about banging his estranged wife.

Stevie J and Joseline Hernandez were guests on "Wild 'N Out" Monday when the 2 ex-lovebirds squared off during the rap battle against Nick and his crew. It started out all fun and games, but got progressively nasty. At one point Stevie J said he banged Mariah Carey not once but twice.

Nick got pissed off, and then told Stevie J he should worry about Joseline because she was sleeping with Rick Ross.  

It got down and dirtier, to the point Nick threatened the old Hollywood adage, "You'll never work in this town again," because he has so many TV shows and connections.

Eyewitnesses tell us it looked like they were about to come to blows, so producers stepped in, separated them and calmed them down. The picture we got tells part of the story.

2/11/2016 7:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0211-elle-fanning-dakota-fanning-GETTY-01Dakota and Elle Fanning looked like they were auditioning for a role in a remake of Stephen King's "The Shining" at Wednesday night's Saint Laurent fashion show in Hollywood. 

It's a good pic, if only because they're rarely photographed together.

The sisters are separated by 4 years  -- Dakota's 21 and Elle's 17 -- but who can tell under all that eyeliner?

Come to think about it ... a remake of "The Shining" would be totally awesome.

1210-michael-cavallari-FACEBOOK-01Kristin Cavallari's family says her brother Michael suffered from extreme paranoia leading up to his fatal disappearance in Utah ... fearing a Mexican gang member was after him.

According to the Grand Co. Sheriff's report -- obtained by TMZ -- Michael Cavallari's mother Judy told cops he was diagnosed as bipolar and had recently claimed a gang member was out to get him. 

Michael's car was found a few days after he went missing ... with 2 cell phones, a laptop and a golf bag containing $18k in cash inside. One possible explanation for all that loot -- the report says he'd just inherited $24k from a grandmother.

Almost two weeks after they found his car, investigators found Michael's body naked in the Utah wilderness with his clothing strewn around him. Investigators believe Michael suffered from "paradoxical undressing" ... a very common phenomena before someone dies from hypothermia.

McCoy was leaving the Misconduct Tavern in Philadelphia on Wednesday night when a reporter from the Philly Influencer asked if he had a statement to his fans.
