Chris Hardwick Pay 'Wonder Woman' RDJ Money ... She Earned It, Dammit!

6/21/2017 6:54 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Chris Hardwick thinks Wonder Woman's paycheck needs to match Iron Man's ... 'cause the actress playing her is just as good as Robert Downey Jr., if not better.

We got Chris -- who's a certified comic book nerd(ist) for this kind of stuff -- and asked what sort of money Gal Gadot should negotiate for in any coming "Wonder Woman" sequels ... this after learning she earned just $300k for 3 movies each

Chris doesn't mince words -- he says she's in RDJ territory now after 'WW' killed with audiences across the world. And his suggestion is on par with RDJ's salary for at least the last few 'Iron Man' flicks.

Stepping on his metal toes?

Kourtney Kardashian, Mason Disick Still Rooting For Aunt Khloe's BF

6/21/2017 6:57 AM PDT

Mason Disick is no fair-weather fan because he's still wearing Tristan Thompson's No. 13 jersey.

Kourtney Kardashian and her 8-year-old tag teamed it Tuesday in Calabasas both looking sporty.

We're guessing Mason's jersey was a gift from Aunt Khloe, who's been dating Thompson since last Summer. His aunt's bf pick clearly came with perks, including seats to Finals games.

Could be worse ... like still rooting for the Lakers during last year's 26-56 season.

Exclusive Details

12:01 PM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell us the nanny made off with $36,820 from Parker ... with around $15,000 of that coming just from withdraws at a local CVS. Parker caught on to her nanny after her bank alerted her to "possible fraudulent transactions."Mary-Louise Parker's nanny may have taken some serious liberties with the "Weeds" star's debit card ... allegedly stealing more than $30k when she was supposed to be shopping for the kids.

The nanny, Amanda Hoston-St. Louis, was arrested Monday after cops say she illegally withdrew more than $3k from Parker's account twice in April. The nanny allegedly had access to the star's debit card and PIN number.

Parker's bank notified her about the transactions ... prompting cops to investigate.

Cops say it wasn't the first time the nanny dipped into Parker's account -- she's allegedly been making withdrawals since 2016 ... totaling more than $30k ... as first reported by the NY Daily News.

Hoston-St. Louis was charged with several counts of identity theft, grand larceny and criminal possession of stolen property.

Human Rights Org Wants Rodman Removed from HOF ... Over N. Korea Ties

6/21/2017 12:40 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

A major human rights org is calling for the Basketball Hall of Fame to BOOT Dennis Rodman over his relationship with Kim Jong-un -- saying it's not right to publicly support a "murderer." 

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation -- a non-profit org established by Congress in '94 -- is furious with The Worm over his recent visit to N. Korea and his ongoing relationship with the country's leader. 

VOC says KJU has "blood on his hands" for the "murder" of American citizen, Otto Warmbier, and they're demanding Rodman either condemn Jong-un ... or else. 

"Dennis Rodman’s complacency and coddling of Kim Jong-un romanticizes and makes light of how dangerous North Korea is to it's own people and Americans who travel there. Removing Rodman from the Hall of Fame will send a message that all Americans are united against this regime."

The VOC has started a petition on Change.org to get Dennis out of the HOF -- and exec. director Marion Smith is putting pressure on the NBA to essentially excommunicate him from the pro basketball community. 

We've reached out to Rodman's camp for comment -- so far, no word back. 

Prodigy Wheeled Out on Stretcher After Saturday Concert

6/20/2017 6:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prodigy must have been hurting bad Saturday night, because during the after-party he was in such bad shape he was wheeled out on a stretcher and taken to the hospital where he later died.

The Mobb Deep rapper arrived at The Mirage for the official after-party at 1OAK. He was supposed to perform, but at around 1:30 AM Sunday he told people he was feeling bad and those around him were so concerned they put him on the gurney.

The emergency followed an incident earlier in the evening ... where he was supposed to meet with fans at an earlier concert that day but canceled because he was feeling ill.

We got a photo of the rapper being wheeled out the back of The Mirage. 

TMZ broke the story ... Prodigy died Tuesday morning, but the cause of death has not been determined.  

Kato Kaelin I'm Not Returning the Favor to O.J. ... No Vacancy at My Guest House

EXCLUSIVE

Kato Kaelin's not expecting to hear from O.J. Simpson after more than 22 years, when he becomes a free man, but if he gets a call ... he probably won't answer it.

The famed witness tells TMZ he thinks O.J. should go into hiding after his expected release from prison later this year.

As for who the Juice will reach out to once he's out of the slammer, Kato doesn't think he's on the list ... but then again, that's the way he wants it.

Electric Daisy Carnival Sued My Son Died from Ecstasy ... You Had No Medics to Save Him!

6/20/2017 6:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The Electric Daisy Carnival was grossly unprepared for medical emergencies, and as a result, a 24-year-old man died after taking Ecstasy ... according to his father, who's now suing Live Nation and the festival's founder.

Nicholas Tom attended the annual 3-day festival in Las Vegas back in 2015. His father, Terry Tom, admits Nicholas popped Ecstasy during the concert -- and in 110 degree heat -- had a seizure and started foaming at the mouth.

In the suit, Mr. Tom says good Samaritans came to Nicholas's aid ... carrying him around looking for a medical tent, which took more than 30 minutes. Once they did, he claims volunteer staffers had no medical experience, and the actual medics had "their hands full and were unavailable."

He says Nicholas died on the floor of the medical tent.

According to the suit, festival organizers are well aware concertgoers take drugs, especially Ecstasy. Mr. Tom says at least one person has died each year at EDC events put on by the defendants, dating back to 2006.

In fact, one man died just this past weekend at EDC Las Vegas.

Tom says EDC should have had proper medical services, trained medical staff, and abundant water for the festival which was attended by 135,000 people. He's suing for wrongful death and negligence.

We've reached out to Live Nation and EDC's founding company, Insomniac.

CBS Radio Sued You Can't Call Me Obama!! That's Just Racist

6/20/2017 4:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

CBS Radio honchos gave an African-American employee a warm welcome by yelling, "Obama!" when she walked in the office -- think Norm on "Cheers," but more racist ... according to her lawsuit, anyway.

The woman was not flattered by the reference, and is suing CBS Radio in NYC ... claiming she was frequently harassed, intimidated and worse. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, she says other interactions were more menacing than the Presidential greeting.

For instance, she claims when she asked a supervisor a question, he replied, "I'd shoot this bitch if I had a gun." According to the suit, another supervisor overheard, asked what was going on ... and the first supervisor barked, "Chicago Double tags, bitch!"

She says she was confused and scared by the comment. 

The woman, who was fired, also describes a frat house environment. According to the suit, a male supervisor once described a massage to another manager -- while in earshot of others -- and said, "Rub-n-tugs" are the best.

She says she was fired because she complained about these issues, although CBS told her she was canned for being late for work.

CBS Radio tells us, "This claim is without merit."

L.A. Rams Rookies Crash 'Friends' Set ... Diversity Ensues!

6/20/2017 3:52 PM PDT

You're looking at the most black people ever on the set of "Friends" ... courtesy of the L.A. Rams!

The Rams' rookie class hit up the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank, CA on Monday for a spectacular VIP tour of the backlot ... which included Central Perk.

Serious question ... these guys are in their early 20s. Do you think any of them have ever seen a full episode of "Friends"?

Doesn't matter ... the guys had a blast anyway visiting other iconic Warner Bros. movie stuff --- including Harry Potter's broom, the Batmobile and more!

WR's Cooper Kupp and Shakeir Ryan even went behind bars in the jail cell from "Suicide Squad."

Other must-dos ... visit the Hollywood sign, survive an earthquake, go to the Walk of Fame and leave disappointed and get stuck on the 405.

Welcome to L.A.!
