'Ellen DeGeneres Show' Big 'Titi' Win In Name Game Lawsuit

2/16/2017 9:02 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ellen DeGeneres' wisecrack about boob piercings forced a judge to actually break down the English language for the woman suing Ellen's show ... before tossing the case out of court.

You'll recall a Georgia woman sued the show producers in June after Ellen -- during a segment called "What's Wrong with These Signs?" -- pronounced real estate agent Titi Pierce's name like "titty" instead of "Tee Tee."

In the docs, the judge articulated exactly why Ms. Titi's got no case:

"The letter 'i' in the English language can be pronounced in several ways. While Titi chooses to pronounce her name with "e," there is nothing demonstrably false in pronouncing it with "i" as DeGeneres did."

Class dismissed.

Harrison Ford 'Completely Misjudged Runway' Last Second Save on Taxiway

2/16/2017 7:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0216-harrison-ford-landing-tmz-02This is a photo of Harrison Ford landing on the taxiway Monday at John Wayne Airport ... and the person who took the pic says the actor was totally out of position seconds before he touched down.

The man who shot the photo had just arrived on a commercial flight and was looking out the terminal window waiting for a friend, when he saw Ford's plane coming in for a landing. He tells TMZ Ford had "completely misjudged the runway" and was not in position to land.

The man grabbed his phone to snap a pic, thinking the pilot might crash, when Ford "banked really sharp." He says the plane was "very close to the ground" when it banked and "hit hard" on the taxiway seconds later.

You see the ramp agent in the photo ... he seemed "shocked," according to the guy who took the pic.

The eyewitness account differs from the story that's being told that Ford simply mistook the taxiway for the runway.

Conor Kennedy Strikes Plea Deal for Aspen Arrest

2/16/2017 8:30 AM PST
Breaking News

0216-conor-kennedy-mug-shot-01Conor Kennedy pled guilty to a misdemeanor in his Aspen nightclub brawl, but he's going to dodge jail time IF he keeps his nose clean.

Conor -- son of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Taylor Swift's ex -- had his lawyer enter the plea Wednesday, and the judge gave him a 6 month deferred sentence. That means the arrest will be scrubbed from his record if he stays out of trouble and abstains from booze and drugs over that period.

If not ... he could do time.

Conor was arrested Dec. 29 after getting into a fistfight outside Bootsy Bellows. He said the other guy had called his friend a homophobic slur.

RFK Jr. told People, which first reported the plea deal, he was proud of his son for standing up to bullies.

Paul & Ringo Beatles, Eagles and Hanks, Oh My! Legendary Dinner Party

2/16/2017 7:07 AM PST

0215-paul-mccartney-ringo-star-beatles-reunion-photos-launch-2If Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joe Walsh, Tom Hanks and Dave Grohl go out for dinner -- as they did Wednesday night in Santa Monica -- who picks up the tab?

The legends came together with their wives at Giorgio Baldi for what has to be the most hall of fameiest meal ever. Think about it -- Beatles, Eagles, Nirvana ... plus Forrest freakin' Gump!

BTW ... it's a trick question. No one in their right mind would charge such a legendary table, we're guessing.

And for good measure ... Martin Short with Maya Rudolph were also in the the restaurant. Basically, it was a tourist's wet dream.

Roman Polanski Wants Back in U.S. To Settle Child Rape Case

2/16/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1212-roman-polanski-gettyRoman Polanski will make a move next week to return to the U.S. and end his child rape case for good, without serving additional jail time.

Polanski's famed lawyer, Harland Braun, has asked an L.A. County Superior Court judge to unseal a long-secret transcript of the testimony of the prosecutor in the Polanski case.

Braun believes the secret testimony supports Polanski's claim that he cut a deal to serve only 48 days behind bars for raping a 13-year-old girl in 1977, and the judge signed off.

Polanski actually spent 42 days in Chino State Prison and was released. But Judge Laurence Rittenband allegedly reneged on the deal and told prosecutors he decided Polanski should spend up to 50 years in prison. That's when Polanski fled the U.S. for Europe.

Polanski spent another 334 days in custody in Switzerland, while authorities tried to extradite him back to the U.S. A Polish court ruled Polanski has served his time under the plea deal, and now Braun wants the L.A. judge to honor that ruling.

We're told Braun wants to clear the way for the 83-year-old famed director and husband of Manson murder victim, Sharon Tate, to come to L.A. and resolve the matter, so he will no longer be a fugitive. He wants to freely travel in Europe and visit Tate's gravesite at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City. He has not been able to visit his daughter in London, either.

As for the victim ... she's now in her 50s and has asked the courts to close the case without imposing more jail time.

Marc Anthony I'm the Rebound King ... Ask My Smoking Hot 21-yr-old GF!

2/16/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0215-marc-anthony-mariana-downing-tmz-instagram-01Marc Anthony's outdone himself again and wasted NO time doing so -- he scored a model barely old enough to order Jägerbombs, even before his divorce was final.

We're told the 48-year-old singer's been dating Wilhelmina Miami model Mariana Downing for a couple months now after meeting her at a dinner party. Witnesses say Marc was immediately smitten -- because he has eyes -- and they exchanged numbers that night.

We're told he called Mariana the next day and they've been together ever since. She's traveled with him to one of his shows, and they've vacationed together in the Caribbean.

Marc's divorce from Shannon De Lima was just finalized on Monday, but he's been on the market since they separated in November.
