AnnaLynne McCord Reveals Mental Health Battle ... Dissociative Identity Disorder

MY STORY
AmenClinic / YouTube

AnnaLynne McCord is not ashamed to admit she struggles with mental health problems -- specifically revealing her diagnosis for dissociative identity disorder.

The former "Nip/Tuck" and "90210" star announced she has what used to be commonly referred to as multiple personality disorder during a sit-down interview with Amen Clinics founder Dr. Daniel Amen.

AnnaLynne says she agreed to have her session recorded in an effort to remove the stigma around mental health problems. She says her doctor once told her the disorder was very serious -- and added, "You'll see me just show up with a black wig and a new personality. I was this tough little baddy, and then I'd be the bohemian flower child."

AnnaLynne also told Dr. Amen it was during her run on "90210" when she realized her acting gigs were compounding the issue. What's more, she said during her 2012 project for the horror film "Excision" things got scary because she said she couldn't get out of character.

She said, "I played a very cerebral, disturbed, strange little girl that was very close to who I feel I am on the inside. It was very exposing, very confronting, probably a bit re-traumatizing without realizing it."

And then there's this ... "The crazy thing about it was that I wrapped that film at 2 AM on a Tuesday and had to be happy, crazy, Beverly Hills blonde bombshell on Wednesday at noon. I couldn't find her, she was not accessible. I was dark, I was very deep into this character Pauline and I couldn't get out."

Dr. Amen told AnnaLynne her brain is not permanently damaged, but said "it's struggling and it can be better, and that's our goal." He said AnnaLynne's brain can be dramatically better in 3 months ... to which an exalted AnnaLynne responded by raising her hands and shouting, "Let's do this!"

Brian Austin Green Having a Beachin' Time With My Kids ... After Split From Model

8:43 AM PT -- Brian's not letting his breakup keep him down in the dumps ... instead he's spending some quality time with his kids.

BAG spent his Wednesday afternoon on the beaches of Malibu, playing in the sand with his children. Seems he's taking Tina's message to heart, and focusing on himself and his fam.

Check out the gallery ... unconditional love.

Brian Austin Green's first legit post-Megan Fox rebound is over and done ... we've learned he's split from Australian Maxim model Tina Louise.

Sources close to Tina tell TMZ ... the short-lived relationship officially ended this week, when she broke things off with the '90210' star.

Several factors spelled doom for the former couple ... we're told Tina was getting a lot of social media hate from Megan and BAG fans. Sources say the bullying was disheartening and really affected her and definitely played a part in the breakup.

The timing wasn't right for Brian and Tina either ... we're told she realized he doesn't want to settle down after separating from his wife, and Tina's looking for something more serious.

As we reported ... Brian and Tina started seeing each other last month, with a Taco Tuesday lunch date helping him try and move on from Megan.

Our sources say Brian had Tina over at his home and introduced her to his best friends, but things just didn't work out.

We're told Tina still thinks BAG's a great guy going through a tough time who needs to focus on himself ... and while they're still friendly, they're taking a huge step back.

Shannen Doherty I'm 'Dying' of Stage 4 Cancer

10:21 AM PT -- In the new docs, obtained by TMZ, Shannen does not skirt her dire diagnosis in her lawsuit against State Farm. The opening line says, "Plaintiff Shannen Doherty is dying of stage 4 terminal cancer."

Her attorney points out she's unable to live out "her remaining years peacefully in her home" because State Farm is still arguing with her over covering the cost of repairs to her home following the fire.

Shannen Doherty is in the battle of her life after revealing her cancer has returned ... and this time it's even more aggressive.

The former '90210' star said Tuesday she's been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. Shannen also revealed the cancer came back last year -- before her former costar Luke Perry's death -- and has kept it private until now.

As for why she revealed her diagnosis Tuesday ... Shannen says her condition was going to become public this week as part of her lawsuit against State Farm over unpaid claims following damage to her house caused by last year's devastating Wolseley fire.

She said, "I'd rather people hear it from me. I don't want it to be twisted, a court document. I want it to be real and authentic. I want to control the narrative. I want people to know from me."

Shannen said of Luke's sudden passing, "Why wasn't it me? It was so weird for me to be diagnosed and then somebody who was seemingly healthy to go first."

You'll recall Shannen -- who said the only person she had told about her diagnosis was Brian Austin Green -- was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015. She went into remission in 2017.

She sued her management company claiming they mismanaged her insurance premiums and let her policy lapse at a critical time when doctors could've done an early detection of her breast cancer. They've since settled out of court.

Ian Ziering Splitting From Wife ... She Says HE Wants Out

Ian Ziering is calling it quits on his marriage ... he says he's splitting from his wife, Erin Ludwig, and she says he's already asked her for a divorce.

The "Beverly Hills, 90210" star made the announcement Thursday on social media, saying "It is with a heavy heart I tell you Erin and I are splitting up,” after more than 9 years of marriage.

Ian doesn't make it sound like it's a nasty split, though ... he added, "With our hectic work schedules we could not be busier, and over the last few years have grown apart. She is one of the most incredible women I have ever met and the best mom to our kids.”

Erin and Ian have 2 daughters and he says they will continue raising them together and be "examples of successful co-parents.”

However, Erin makes it sound like there's been trouble in paradise for sometime now. As she puts it, "After 9 1/2 years of marriage Ian asked for a divorce. After having asked multiple times I knew it was time to give up."

It's unclear if either of them has filed divorce docs yet.

Erin says, "Knowing that I am not the person to make him happy makes the situation feel more peaceful. The girls and I are doing great and finding gratitude and love in our new life together and rebuilding."

Ian and Erin tied the knot back in May 2010. This will be his second divorce.

'Beverly Hills, 90210' Cast Members Bring Back the Peach Pit ... Luke Perry Charity Event

The "Beverly Hills, 90210" reboot has been on the air for about a month now, and it looks like the big reunion is continuing off-screen with a revived pop-up from the show.

'90210' stars Brian Austin Green, Ian Ziering and Joe E. Tata were among some of the actors who showed up Friday to a Johnny Rockets in L.A. that had been transformed into the Peach Pit -- the same after-school hangout from the show, with the fictional owner to boot.

Looks like they did a pretty intricate job at reimagining the joint ... the menus were changed and everything, and even some of the grub appeared to be Peach Pit specials.

Now, the Peach Pit pop-up isn't entirely new -- the gang did the same thing earlier last month ahead of the debut of their new spin-off, 'BH90210,' which stars much of the OG cast.

This time, Brian and co. ran it back as part of a special event for a live episode of his podcast, "...with Brian Austin Green," which he recorded at Torrance High School (the filming site from way back in the '90s). The proceeds they raised this weekend was donated to charity in honor of Luke Perry -- who died this year before the new show launched.

Seems like the Peach Pit experience went off without a hitch. Here's hoping someone had a Made-to-Order-by-McKay burger to bring it all home.

Ian Ziering New '90210' is Gonna Kick Butt, But ... It's Not What You Think!!!

9021Oh Really?
TMZ.com

The highly anticipated reboot of "Beverly Hills, 90210" isn't just another cookie-cutter play for nostalgia -- it's taking the idea in a bold new direction ... and Ian Ziering thinks you're gonna love it.

The guy who played Steve Sanders on the wildly popular '90s TV show joined "TMZ Live" Tuesday and broke it down so viewers know what to expect ... as much as possible anyway.

From the sound of it, it's not quite "Curb Your Enthusiasm" and not quite "Desperate Housewives" ... but somewhere in between for the stars of '90210' who've reunited for the project.

As you know ... all the major players -- Jennie Garth, Jason Priestley, Shannen Doherty, Gabrielle Carteris, Brian Austin Green and Tori Spelling -- are back along with Ziering. The exception is Luke Perry, who sadly passed earlier this year.

Ian says the new show -- with the slightly tweaked title, "BH90210" -- will highlight the differences between the actors' real lives and the characters they play on screen ... but with a twist.

He also touches on how surreal it was to gather with his costars back at the ol' Peach Pit after all these years -- especially when Ian's moved on quite a bit from his Sanders character, now starring in and producing a new movie called "Zombie Tidal Wave."

Seems like the group had a ton of fun filming the 6-part miniseries together, and don't worry ... the classic theme song is back too. Check it out Wednesday night on FOX.

Trevor Donovan Donates Doggy Wheelchair To Paralyzed Philly K-9

CHANGING DOG LIVES

Trevor Donovan is helping a needy family ease the strain on their struggling German shepherd ... he's donating his doggy wheelchair to the paralyzed pup.

The former "90210" star says he was bombarded with emails after appearing last week on "TMZ Live," with tons of folks inquiring about the wheelchair Trevor used for his ailing German shepherd, Dogbert. He passed away recently after battling degenerative myelopathy.

One family's plea stood out ... and now Trevor's sending the wheelchair to Philadelphia, where it will greatly improve the life of an 8-year-old German shepherd named Thor, who recently lost the use of its hind legs -- just like Trevor's dog.

Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.

In case you missed Trevor on 'Live' ... degenerative myelopathy is a progressive disease of the spinal cord – and he needed the wheelchair to get around.

Thor's family couldn't afford surgery for the retired police dog, but Trevor's doing his part to help.

DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN AGAIN
TMZ.com

Trevor Donovan is using his dog's heartbreaking death as a teachable moment ... he's here to tell you just how easy it is to stop dogs from suffering the same sad fate.

Trevor came on "TMZ Live" to tell us about his Dogbert's recent passing, and why the disease that killed him is totally preventable. His German shepherd suffered from degenerative myelopathy -- a progressive disease of the spinal cord -- and Trevor says the condition can easily be bred out of all types of dogs.

THINK OF THE DOGS
TMZ.com

The last time we caught up with the "90210" alum, Dogbert was already dragging his hind legs ... and Trevor was pissed at the greedy breeders who were too cheap to get their pups tested.

Trevor's still calling for breeders to step up and shoulder some of the responsibility for ridding dogs of the disease ... and advocating for everyone to apply the $40 lab test.

Luke Perry Hollywood Set to Celebrate His Life

Luke Perry's getting a proper sendoff from Hollywood ... with a celebration of his extraordinary life.

TMZ's obtained the invitation that's been sent to those who worked with Luke during his Hollywood career ... a list boasting hundreds of names. We're told the invitation's gone out to those who worked with him on "Beverly Hills, 90210," "Riverdale" and various other projects.

Our sources say the invite's not limited to stars and execs who run Tinseltown. We're told crew members -- from camera guys and makeup artists to hairstylists and wardrobe folks -- are included on the guest list. The private event is set for April 13 at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank.

As we first reported ... Luke's ashes were spread around the place he most cherished ... the Tennessee farm where he lived on and off over the last 20-plus years. TMZ broke the story ... Luke died suddenly this month after suffering a massive stroke.

His death sent shock waves across the world. Luke was an adoring father and was revered just as much in Hollywood, which is why it wants to unite one last time in his honor.

Luke Perry & Fiancee Wendy Summer Wedding Had Been Planned

Luke Perry and his fiancee, Wendy Madison Bauer, were planning on getting married later this year before his shocking death -- this according to their "save the date" cards.

TMZ obtained one of their "save the dates," and it forecast a late summer wedding in L.A. It looks like Luke and Wendy planned to get hitched August 17. The card doesn't get into more specific detail, but it does say a formal invite would follow.

BTW ... the "save the date" card was elegantly designed, featuring a grey and gold color scheme as well as a Naive Inline-type font. Very Gatsby-esque.

Wendy broke her silence over the weekend, expressing gratitude for the outpouring of love and support she's received in the wake of Luke's passing earlier this month.

We broke the story ... Luke died in the hospital a few days after suffering a massive stroke at his Southern California home. Doctors sedated him, hoping he'd recover, but he never did.

Regarding Luke himself, Wendy said, "The past 11½ years with Luke were the happiest years of my life, and I am grateful to have had that time with him,” she continues, “I also want to thank his children, family, and friends for their love and support. We have found comfort in one another and in the knowledge that our lives were touched by an extraordinary man. He will be dearly missed."

It's unclear when exactly Luke and Wendy got engaged, but what is clear is that they were aiming to make things official very soon.

Luke Perry Waiting to Shine On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The outpouring love for Luke Perry proves he's a strong candidate to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame -- and yet, it's gonna take at least 5 years before he can be immortalized.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce tells TMZ ... they would be very happy to consider Luke for a star on the Walk of Fame, but because it didn't happen before his death ... the process is a bit more complicated.

Typically, a celeb can be nominated by anyone, but the application must include a written statement from the celeb that he or she wants the star and will attend the ceremony if approved.

In the case of a deceased celeb ... the family has to give its permission for the process to move forward -- only one deceased nominee is approved each year.

We broke the story -- Luke died March 4 after suffering a massive stroke -- which means March 4, 2024 is the earliest he can be considered. Mark your calendars, 'cause it's gonna happen.

Luke's nomination is a slam dunk ... he enjoyed a prolific acting career on TV and in movies -- rising to fame on "Beverly Hills, 90210" and most recently starring as Archie's dad on CW's hit show, "Riverdale."

He also filmed a part in Quentin Tarantino's upcoming Charles Manson movie, "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood," and had prominent roles on TV shows like "Oz," "Another World," "John From Cincinnati," "Jeremiah," "Body of Proof," and "Windfall."

Start the countdown.
