Rob McElhenney My Handsome Rankings ... Pitt > Pattinson, Letterman > Me

Exclusive
SCIENCE SCHMIENCE
TMZ.com

Rob McElhenney's not on board with Robert Pattinson being declared "The Most Handsome Man in the World," because when it comes to good looks ... he believes an American actor's the cream of the crop.

But no, it's not his good buddy, Charlie Day.

The "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" star was signing autographs outside Build NYC Wednesday when we told him the news -- Pattinson's #1 over guys like Brad Pitt, Idris Elba, Henry Cavill and George Clooney ... at least according to the "science" of the Golden Ratio of Beauty Phi.

Rob says no way -- it's Brad all day ... and even debates a fan why Cavill's not tops for him.

As for his personal place on the hunk-o-meter (again, this is not very scientific), Mac's pretty modest ... though ranking David Letterman above him makes sense, especially if beards are factored in.

Rob also reveals the strangest thing he's signed for a fan ... it's pretty fitting for his 'Always Sunny' character.

Actress Alice Evans Blows Up on YouTuber ... You're Parked in a Compact Space!!!

Exclusive
NO PARKIN'!!!
TMZ.com

'Vampire Diaries' actress Alice Evans lost her s**t on a YouTuber who claims she hit her car in a parking lot and drove away -- and the confrontation between the two is wild.

The vlogger is Kayla Lashae, and she captured the British star leaving her vehicle Monday afternoon in L.A. to berate Kayla after allegedly knocking her back bumper while trying to park next to her. Watch ... Alice goes ballistic over what she thought was Kayla's fault.

Alice's rationale ... Kayla had a massive vehicle parked in a compact space, and didn't allow Alice to easily get her vehicle in. Her actual breakdown of it is more ... well, impassioned.

FWIW, Kayla drives a Jeep Wrangler -- so yeah, it's a big car.

Now, Kayla tells us Alice actually backed into another vehicle during the botched parking job ... and then, allegedly, drove away without leaving a note or exchanging info with Kayla herself. Kayla says she filed a police report with LAPD as a result -- they're looking into it.

The funny nugget out of all this ... Alice actually once starred in a movie called "Dangerous Parking." Ah, life imitates art yet again.

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

Exclusive Details
TMZ.com

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.

LET GO OF THE STIGMA
TMZ.com

Shannen Doherty is getting cancer treatment options from a famous survivor ... figure skater Scott Hamilton.

We got the Olympic gold medalist in NYC on World Cancer Day and asked if he had a message for Shannen ... who just revealed her breast cancer has returned and is now stage 4.

Scott says Shannen should seek as many medical opinions and options for treatment as she can because that's the best way to survive. Hamilton is definitely an expert on the subject, he's persevered through 3 brain tumors and overcome testicular cancer.

While the diagnosis sounds bleak -- Shannen says she's "dying of stage 4 terminal cancer" -- Scott says there are all kinds of things she can do ... surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, immunotherapy, etc.

We also asked him about Shannen's decision to keep mum on her diagnosis because she wanted to prove she could still work. Scott explains why cancer stigmas don't help patients.

BTW, Hamilton has a new children's book out, inspired by his own family's experience with cancer.

Dog the Bounty Hunter Focusing On Me With Show on Back Burner

Exclusive
TMZ.com

Dog the Bounty Hunter's got a new #1 job -- now that he's without his wife, Beth, and his TV show -- and that's himself.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... the future of "Dog's Most Wanted" is currently up in the air. WGN ran it last season, but the superstation is under new ownership and has changed its prime time lineup to a 3-hour news show.

Dog would normally be shooting his hit show right now, but instead, he's on hiatus and that means he has a lot of free time on his hands. We're told he plans to use it as "me" time -- doing a lot of self-exploration and chasing passions like fishing. He has a favorite fishing hole in Colorado, so we're told he'll be there a lot.

He's also going to work with at-risk youth -- and, of course, continue working bounty hunter cases. It ain't just a TV show, it's his real-life gig.

Speaking of which, even though his show -- the No. 1-rated original series on WGN -- is off the air right now, he still wants to stay connected with fans. We're told he'll keep scheduling meet-and-greets.

As we reported, Dog's also grown close to one of his late wife's friends, Moon -- and even proposed to her during a 'Dr. Oz' taping. That's caused plenty of strife in his family -- but Dog's gonna have time to patch things up if that's what he wants to do.

'Mighty Ducks' Goalie Offered Free Treatment in Texas From Lindsay Lohan's Dad

Exclusive
TMZ Composite

"Mighty Ducks" goalie Shaun Weiss has a tremendous amount of help waiting for him when he gets out of jail ... from someone who knows plenty about rehab -- Michael Lohan.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Lindsay's pop is one of many people who are getting involved to help out the struggling child star. We're told Michael doesn't know Shaun personally but he's no stranger to rehab and staying on the straight and arrow.

Our sources say several people in Hollywood contacted Michael about Shaun's situation, and he jumped at the opportunity to help through a program in Texas.

Everett Collection

We're told the program specializes in medically-assisted detox and therapy. It ain't cheap, but the program's agreed to assist Shaun with what it calls a scholarship ... worth up to $60k to cover expenses.

There is one major condition ... Shaun will have to be mentally evaluated, and if he poses no physical danger to himself or others ... our sources say he'll be admitted to the program.

That is, of course, if Shaun agrees to all of this once he's sprung free from a NorCal jail.

As we first reported ... friends are desperate to get Shaun much needed help. He's dealing with several life-threatening problems, including diabetes, mental illness and, of course ... drug addiction.

Friends have tried to get Shaun into various rehab facilities for years now, but it's proven difficult due to long waitlists. Friends also started a GoFundMe for Shaun. But, it sounds like Michael's got Shaun covered, provided he's agreeable to treatment.

Dog The Bounty Hunter Kids Slam Proposal Mom Would Be Super Upset

Exclusive
TMZ Composite

Beth Chapman would be heartbroken and angry had she watched Dog The Bounty Hunter propose to her former maid of honor on TV ... at least according to their children.

Sources close to Dog and Beth's kids tell TMZ ... they've seen the clips of their father proposing to one of his late wife's friends, Moon Angell on "The Dr. Oz Show" ... and it's a total gut-punch!!!

Our sources say the Chapman kids are convinced Beth would NOT support the proposal ... and they feel Beth would be incensed if she saw it go down.

The reason -- we're told Beth and Moon had a chat before she passed and Moon allegedly told Beth she would take care of Dog after Beth died. Our sources say Beth told her kids about the convo, and no one was happy.

As we reported ... Dog and Moon are not actually engaged, despite the TV proposal, but he's grown close to Moon and she's helping him through the grieving process.

Sources close to the kids tell us they were also extremely hurt when Dog confessed Moon was the reason he decided against taking his own life ... we're told the kids felt their father should want to stay alive for his own kids' sake.

However, sources close to Dog tell us he has NO intention of replacing Beth with Moon. He's just trying to navigate life without his wife, and Moon helps with the day-to-day grind.

Our Dog sources add ... he definitely cares about his kids and wants to be there for them, and he's still got Beth's ashes in his bedroom.

To see more from Dog, watch Dr. Oz on February 3.

Jason Momoa Gets Wet & Comfy ... For Super Sunday

SNEAK PEEK
Rocket Mortgage

Here's Jason Momoa like you've never seen him before ... plucking his eyebrows and reading a young adult romance novel while soaking in a bubble bath.

If that sounds like the makings of a Super Bowl commercial, then someone on Madison Ave nailed it. Aquaman got downright comfy for his Rocket Mortgage spot. He's been teasing it all week ... posting snippets, but Friday morning he gave us the full Monty.

Chill. We meant that metaphorically.

You can see Jason brushing his hair, practicing his baritone movie trailer voice, and talking to his dog in a baby voice -- all while wearing, for some reason, TWO bathrobes or just bubbles.

The 60-second ad will reportedly air during the first half of the game. The theme is something about feeling comfortable in your own home, but do you really give a crap?

It's Momoa in a tub. End of story.

Jason will get plenty of celeb competition on Super Sunday. Chris Evans, John Krasinski, Rachel Dratch and David Ortiz are all costarring in one car company's commercial.

That one's Boston themed, but again ... who cares??

Aaron Hernandez's Fiancee If He Was Gay I Wish He Would Have Told Me!!!

Breaking News

Aaron Hernandez's fiancee says she doesn't know if the ex-NFL star was gay -- as suggested in a new Netflix docuseries -- but she wouldn't have cared if he was.

"I wouldn't have loved him any differently," Shayanna Jenkins said on "Good Morning America" ... "I would have understood."

The Netflix series, "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez" features claims from Aaron's high school teammate, Dennis SanSoucie, who said the two had a sexual relationship before going to college.

Jenkins didn't dispute the claim -- but said it's unfair to discuss someone's sexuality when that person isn't around to have a say.

"Although I had a child with Aaron, I can't tell you how he was feeling inside," Jenkins said.

"If he did feel that way, or if he felt the urge, I wish that I was told. I wish that he would have told me because I wouldn't have loved him any differently. I would have understood. It's not shameful."

She continued, "I think it's a beautiful thing. I just wish I was able to tell him that."

Of course, Hernandez took his own life in his prison cell back in 2017 -- where he was serving time for the 2013 murder of Odin Lloyd.

When asked if she believes Hernandez was innocent, Jenkins replied, "Yes. Of course I do."

Ryan Seacrest, Mark Cuban Harry & Meghan Could Strike It Rich ... Take it From Us Titans!!!

Exclusive
JUST THE BEGINNING
TMZ.com

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry aren't going to be left penniless -- FAR from it actually, according to Ryan Seacrest and Mark Cuban ... so long as they follow this advice.

The two titans of industry -- who've successfully forged their own paths in entertainment and sports, and branded themselves masterfully -- sat down for the new, TMZ/FOX special, "Harry & Meghan: The Royals In Crisis," to share their thoughts on PH and MM's financial future in entertainment.

As you might've heard, the former Royals are kinda on their own now. And, life ain't free!!!

The question ... can they make an honest buck, and if so, how? Seacrest says it all depends on what they have to offer, which may come as a surprise to both the public and maybe even themselves, especially Harry. Bottom line, RS thinks there's untapped potential there.

Mark Cuban is right there with him ... saying, if Har and Meg play their cards right, they could be just as successful and wealthy as the Obamas, if not more so.

ALL PART OF THE PLAN
TMZ.com

FOX's one-hour special gets into more than just what lies ahead for them though ... it's also a deep dive into what got them here to begin with. Piers Morgan has thoughts on that.

Check it out ... he makes no bones about how he believes Meghan manipulated her way to the top, only to strip his country's Prince away from his people and family. Oof, harsh!

Renowned writer Afua Hirsch has a different take, however, with which many others agree.

Get ready for fireworks! 'The Royals in Crisis' airs on FOX Wednesday at 8 PM ET/7 PM CT.

Wendy Williams is officially single and already mingling ... because she knows exactly what she wants, and the goods she's got to offer.

It's no surprise the talk show host is on the market -- she has been since she filed for divorce from her husband, Kevin Hunter, in April -- but we're told she's been enjoying the dating scene lately ... and has it down to a bit of a science.

We're told Wendy's always taking interviews for potential suitors and has criteria for them. For example, they don't have to be millionaires, but they better treat her in a manner she's accustomed ... so no cheap-ass dinners or gifts.

Second, she doesn't date dudes with kids still living at home ... our sources say she's not down with going to PTA meetings or youth baseball games.

Felicity Huffman Catch Me If You Can, Coronavirus!!! ... Sophia Masks Up Too

Felicity Huffman wasn't able to escape to the U.S. criminal justice system, but she is trying to make a clean break from the coronavirus ... which has apparently made its way stateside.

The actor was out Saturday at JFK with her daughter, Sophia, who was roped into the college admission scandal last year. They were both wearing face masks, seemingly to combat the spreading super-germ, which has at least a couple confirmed cases here at home.

Looks like Felicity isn't taking any chances as she travels with her flesh and blood. We've been seeing that a little bit here in L.A. too -- Kristin Chenoweth was also rocking a mask just this past week ... and for good reason. This thing can be fatal in humans.

MASKS ON
TMZ.com

If you haven't heard, the virus reportedly starting breaking out in China first -- but, as we mentioned, there've been some folks within our borders that have contracted it.

Supposedly, it mimics a cold at first ... and then turns into a full-blown respiratory infection. And, if you're unlucky, it might even kill you.

Better safe than sorry!
