Hundreds of scared animals were helplessly fending for themselves in the midst of the raging California wildfires, that is until an army of humans descended on the ravaged areas to save them.
Check out the video ... tortoises, sheep, a llama, a rabbit, a mini-horse, chickens and an alpaca are all beneficiaries of the rescue effort.
There were scores of horses that had to be abandoned because their owners almost had to immediately evacuate. Many of the horses were tagged and let free, with the hope they would find their way to safety and then reunite with their owners.
It was treacherous work trying to save the animals ... many of which were scared and skittish.
A number of groups, including the Animal Hope and Wellness foundation had volunteers out and about trying to save the helpless creatures.
Former Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole was among the cadre of volunteers, and she describes the difficulties of the rescue effort.
Playboy model Aubrey Evans introduced her fantastic physique to an exquisite antique -- and we're pretty sure she'd make the classic car overheat.
Aubrey was rocking a black lace bra and heels this week for a photo shoot in Malibu. Plenty to be jealous of here -- the sweet, sweet ride ... Aubrey herself ... or the amazing beach and sunshine. Gotta love Novembers in SoCal, baby!
The next time you hear someone whining about gas guzzling cars, remember these pics. Sorry, but hot chicks leaning on a Nissan Leaf just ain't the same. Thank you, Henry Ford ... and thank you, Aubrey.
Khloe Terae is a long way from her home in the Great White North, but she's still dressing for cooler temps even at the beach in Cali ... well, half of her is anyway.
International Playboy's 2014 Playmate of the Year -- who's from Canada, but earned her title in South Africa -- hit up a beach in Malibu, and was clearly feeling chilly up top. Not so much down low, but she's got a lotta cushion. We get it.
Khloe went topless under her leather coat at first, but later slipped into a more traditional bikini.
No doubt aboot it ... Khloe's making all the right wardrobe moves.
Holly Madison is about to be on the market ... her husband, Pasquale Rotella, has filed for divorce from the former Playboy model.
Holly and Pasquale got hitched in 2013, and they have 2 kids together, daughter Rainbow Aurora and son Forest. The couple decided to end their union after their romance was said to have fizzled out.
According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Pasquale filed on August 31 in Vegas.
Rotella posted a statement Tuesday, saying, "It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate. First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity."
Holly famously dated Hugh Hefner and was one of the stars of the TV show, "The Girls Next Door."
Holly and Pasquale got married at Disneyland ... but their marriage won't have a storybook ending.
Quentin Tarantino will host his "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" premiere party at the Playboy Mansion -- this after recently filming some scenes there ... TMZ has learned.
QT and co. are going to have their after-party at Hugh Hefner's romping grounds following the premiere of his highly anticipated flick -- which chronicles the Manson murders. While a date for the party hasn't been set quite yet, we're told it has gotten the green light for whenever the film drops ... which, for now, is slated for summer 2019.
Tarantino and his crew were seen at the Playboy Mansion last week, where they filmed for 3 days. The current owner of the house, Daren Metropoulos, says ... "After Quentin reached out to me and I spent some time understanding his vision for the film, I knew there was a special opportunity to collaborate together and feature the mansion in this thrilling project."
He added ... "The timing was excellent as the property has already begun to transform back to its original grandeur and has never looked more impressive."
Tarantino's got history with the Playboy Mansion. He hosted his "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" video release party there in 2004. Looks like he's circling back with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino and other big stars that've been cast.
The premiere party appears to be one of the first major A-list events to be held at the mansion since Hugh Hefner's death late last year and since Daren bought the place for $100 million about a year prior. Most recently, he was cleared to undergo major repairs ahead of a potential historic monument designation.
The jury's still out on whether the mansion will get that status.
Ben Affleck's latest sighting shows all the signs of a bachelor lifestyle, which has us wondering ... has he broken up with GF Lindsay Shookus?
Ben was spotted Thursday night leaving Nobu Malibu rocking a very casual single-guy look -- loose jeans, jacket, t-shirt with a cig in hand -- after having dinner with a very hot blonde who's not Lindsay.
The chick is Playboy's Miss May 2018, Shauna Sexton.
It's interesting -- Affleck celebrated his bday Wednesday with his kids, and had a dinner date with Shauna last night ... but no sign of any celebrating with Shookus.
Ben and Lindsay haven't been photographed together in nearly a month. And, what's also interesting ... there was a moving van in front of Ben's home on August 9. We don't know if someone was moving in or moving out of his $19 million Pacific Palisades mansion.
We reached out to the "Justice League" star to see if perhaps Batman went through a pre-birthday breakup ... so far, no word back.
New Zealand model and Playboy Playmate Amy Lee Summers brought new meaning to the ol' adage, "1 if by land, 2 if by sea," when she spilled out of her top in the SoCal surf.
Amy Lee was frolicking through Malibu Thursday for a photo shoot when she suffered the nip slip, but recovered like a pro. She had more luck securing her bikini bottoms -- they stayed on. Barely.
Even while she was on dry land, she found a way to end up all wet.
Check out the gallery ... summer's definitely coming.
Jeep Wranglers don't have your standard trunk, but that didn't stop Playboy model Khloe Terae from putting hers all over one ... and in nothing but a red hot string bikini!
Khloe wiped down the custom job -- it's a Jeep Wrangler JK -- for a photo shoot at DCD Customs in SoCal ... and there's a lot more to these pics than just her fat tires.
The last Wrangler JK rolled off the assembly line in Ohio last week, so there's extra value in this 4X4 ... and not just because Khloe, who's a a big fan of water, gave it a rub down.
And that's your T&A -- tires and ass -- bonus info. Enjoy!
Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump ... and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o' money off it.
McDougal had sued the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, over a non-disclosure agreement she signed with them in 2016. She got $150k and some promotional perks, and the Enquirer got her exclusive story about the 2006 affair with Trump. She sued to get out of the deal.
Well, they reached a settlement ... according to the New York Times, and is now allowed to talk all she wants about her Trump relationship. You'll recall, McDougal sat down with Anderson Cooper last month for a CNN special.
So, why does the settlement matter? It's pretty clear based on the terms, which include American Media getting $75k of any future profits Karen makes off selling the Trump story.
Start the countdown to Karen's tell-all book hitting stores -- but ya gotta wonder what's left for her to reveal. The NYT says she also gets to keep her $150k fee.
Former Playmate Jayde Nicole doesn't think it's fair that men can show their nipples and women can't in public, and thinks it's time to once and for all free the nipple ... which she did twice for our camera guy.
We got Brody Jenner's ex-gf leaving Warwick in Hollywood with a friend Wednesday night and asked her about the 17-year-old in Florida who was forced to cover her nipples with Band-Aids when she came to school without a bra on under her shirt.
First, Jayde and her pal dropped a few jewels about ending the nipple double standard ... and then Jayde dropped her top.
This rebellion WILL be televised.
Kendra and Hank both attended their 3-year-old daughter Alijah's soccer game Sunday, which Kendra documented on social media. At one point she points the camera at her estranged hubby, who's almost within arm's reach, standing next to their kid.
The two parents even shouted words of encouragement to Alijah as she dribbled around on the field. It would seem, based on this video, they're on the same team when it comes to their little ones, even in the face of a very public breakup and eventual divorce filing.
We broke the story ... Kendra officially filed for divorce from Hank Friday, citing irreconcilable differences. She's seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two kids.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Kendra became quite emotional in the days leading up to her filing, saying she loved Hank but that she "did everything I could." They got married in 2009.
Wilkinson posted several videos Monday after rumors swirled in recent months of ongoing issues in their relationship that signaled a split was imminent.
She also broke down in tears on video recounting her time with Hank, saying she'll always love him and, "I did everything I could."
She and Hank have 2 kids together -- 8-year-old Hank IV, and 3-year-old Alijah. The couple got hitched in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion -- with Hugh Hefner and her other 'Girls Next Door' castmates in attendance. When we saw Kendra last week in Calabasas, she tried to keep a positive outlook ... but she was, pretty obviously, stressed.
Hank was allegedly involved in a 2014 affair with a transgender model while Kendra was 8 months pregnant. Word is ... the scandal dogged their relationship until the end.
Aubrey O'Day's on a roll for Easter, but it ain't like the one that's happening at the White House this week ... not even close, actually. You seeing this, DTJ?
Aubrey posted a revealing photo Sunday just in time for Easter, which shows her bottomless and bunny-ed out, cottontail and all. She captioned the pic "egg hunt #happyeaster" ... and at first glance, you might not even realize she's surrounded by 'em.
As we reported ... the former Playboy model and singer has been mum on her alleged 2012 affair with Donald Trump Jr. in the wake of his pending divorce with his wife, Vanessa -- at least publicly she has.
However, she's been telling friends that she absolutely hooked up with him post-"Celebrity Apprentice," but that it didn't have anything to do with his and Vanessa's split.
Meanwhile, Trump Jr.'s been spotted being civil with his estranged spouse lately -- hanging out with her and their kids for Spring Break at Mar-a-Lago just a week ago.
He hasn't uttered a peep about Aubrey so far, but we imagine it'll be hard for him to ignore her now.
The 1998 Playmate of the Year is going after American Media Inc. -- which owns The National Enquirer -- claiming she was misled about the company's deal to pay her for her story.
According to the docs ... McDougal didn't seek "hush money" from Trump, but rather thought she was selling her story to the Enquirer for $100k and future appearances in the publication. Instead, she claims her story was buried ... and she didn't get the publicity she was promised.
McDougal claims in the docs that Trump's lawyer, Michael Cohen, was secretly involved with AMI in the effort to pay her off and shut her up ... because the head of the company, David Pecker, is friends with Trump and he had just secured the Republican nomination.
According to the suit ... McDougal's also being threatened with legal action and monetary damages if she talks about her alleged affair with Trump. As we reported, Trump's lawyer accused Stormy Daniels of such a breach of their contract ... and is going after her for $20 million.
Don McLean's playing a young man's game, and dominating so hard ... he's already got a trophy.
The legendary "American Pie" singer was leaving a hotel Wednesday in London with his much younger, and total smoke show of a Playboy model girlfriend ... Paris Dylan.
We'll do the math -- she's 24, he's 72, which adds up to ... get it, Donnie!
He was dressed age-appropriately for an oldie, but goodie folk singer. Paris also appropriately rocked a curve-hugging dress. Even though she's posted pics with a shiny rock on her finger, Don's people have told us their thing is strictly professional.
Don didn't write the book of love ... but those legs gotta put his faith in God above ...
The Playboy Mansion will remain one of L.A.'s most iconic properties, but it will NOT be added to the city's list of historic cultural landmarks.
The mansion's new billionaire owner, Daren Metropoulos, struck a deal with city officials in which the property will be permanently protected -- regardless of future owners -- but will not be subject to some of the normal restrictions attached to historic landmarks or monuments.
The new agreement locks in Daren's previous commitment to "not demolish the main residence and will repair the facade of the structure while maintaining its original condition as part of his extensive renovation."
Basically, the deal allows Daren to transform the mansion without a landmark status that would have added a lot of red tape. He says Hugh Hefner was aware of his renovation plans.
