Lifetime Sued You Called Us Ugly for Cheap Laughs!!!

1/10/2019 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lifetime pulled a major Scrooge move in one of its heartwarming holiday flicks by taking a real-life family that had nothing to do with the movie and calling 'em ugly ... according to the fam, anyway.

Setiam and Katherine Allah are suing the cable channel over a scene in "Christmas Harmony" ... which they did not find the least bit harmonious or Christmas-y. In a lawsuit, the Allahs say one of their family photos somehow ended up as a prop on the movie's set without their permission.

If you saw the movie ('cause who didn't?), the lead character, Harmony, pins a random family pic to the wall ... only to have her love interest tell her to take it down immediately. Harmony protests, but her guy fires back ... "They're ugly!"

The Allahs were embarrassed when friends and family called to say they easily recognized them while watching the film. According to the suit, the Allahs only sent out about 50 of those family portraits, but not to anyone who works for Lifetime.

The movie aired back in November, so for the Allahs, the damage is done. They're suing Lifetime for all of the movie's profits. Bah humbug!

We've reached out to Lifetime, so far no word back.

1/7/2019 1:12 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Andy Cohen ain't about to let Johnny Law rain on his New Year's Eve plans, because the host is already gearing up for the next ball drop with a fancy new umbrella ... Times Square Alliance be damned!

We got Andy Monday in NYC and he flaunted his personalized umbrella ... bragging it would be with him for his next NYE broadcast. He also dared the now infamous Times Square Alliance to stop him.  

You'll recall ... Andy threw a fit on-air during CNN's NYE broadcast last week after he claimed security ordered him to lose his umbrella in the pouring rain or risk losing the network's credentials for the next NYE show.

The Times Square Alliance fired back in response to Andy's rant, pouring water all over his claims.

It's clear Andy's not ready to squash the beef yet, and just might be praying for rain on Dec. 31, 2019.

The two were spotted at the South Beach condo Friday ... it's the $14 MILLION purchase Kanye surprised Kim with for Christmas. Our sources say the two plan to split time with their family between their estate in Hidden Hills and the Miami residence.

Not to mention ... the place is just steps from the beach.

Australian Rules Superstar Parties with LeBron, Kendall & Drake ... During U.S. Trip

1/4/2019 9:53 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Nic Naitanui is one of the GREATEST athletes you've never heard of -- an Australian Rules Football superstar -- who spent his New Year's Eve partying with the most famous people on Earth. 

And, why? BECAUSE HE'S A STUD!! Seriously, watch his highlights. 

The 28-year-old West Coast Eagles star has spent the past few weeks in America while recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee. He's been training at UCLA. 

Despite his massive fame in Australia, NicNat has been flying under the radar for most of his trip because -- let's face it -- most Americans don't watch Aussie Rules. 

But, our photog, Charlie, is from Down Under -- and could barely believe it when he spotted the Australian sports hero hanging out like a normie in Santa Monica. 

Nic told us he's met a ton of big stars during his U.S. trip including Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner ... and spent his New Year's Eve with LeBron James and Drake

By the way, Nic is 6'7" and 223 pounds -- a freak of an athlete -- and worked out at the Philadelphia Eagles training facility in 2017.

So, is there a future in the NFL?

"I enjoy the game. I don't know ... maybe one day."

Nic says he'd probably be a good fit for a tight end since he's got some of the best hands in Aussie Rules.

Meantime, go back and watch Nic's highlights ... this dude is unreal. 

Olivia Newton-John Looking Great for Lunch Date ... Death Reports Be Damned

1/3/2019 10:04 AM PST

Olivia Newton-John looks great, which would only come as a surprise if you believed a report that claimed she was "clinging to life."

The legendary "Grease" star was out in Santa Barbara Wednesday on the way to grab lunch with her husband ... smiling and looking very alive and well.

Olivia debunked death bed speculation later in the day by cheerfully wishing everyone a Happy New Year and dropping a famous Mark Twain quote -- and these pics back up those words.

As you may know ... Olivia's a cancer survivor, who announced in 2017 she was undergoing treatment after being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer that had spread to her spine.

She said it was going well at the time and her outlook was positive ... and all signs point to that still being the case.

Andy Cohen Times Square Alliance Fires Back Pours Water On His NYE Umbrella Rant

1/2/2019 6:30 PM PST

It's still raining on Andy Cohen, because he's getting some serious pushback from the Times Square Alliance after he ranted on air about being singled out by officials who forced him to take down his umbrella during his CNN New Year's Eve broadcast. 

During his fit, Andy claimed someone in the Times Square Alliance threatened to pull CNN's credentials for its next NYE show if he didn't lose his umbrella.

The Alliance fired back on Wednesday, issuing a statement to Page Six saying umbrellas are not allowed in certain media areas because they can block sightlines for other media.

The Alliance also denied Cohen's claim CNN's credentials were threatened, saying, "some tempers flared, but it was never the case, nor will it be the case, that CNN would be denied credentials or the ability to cover New Year's Eve."

Here's to hoping rain steers clear of Times Square next NYE ... although it did make for some pretty interesting TV.

Tiffany Haddish Don't Get Turnt Up Before Work ... Miami Made Me Do It!!!

1/2/2019 1:23 PM PST
Breaking News

Tiffany Haddish has found several silver linings to bombing her NYE show in Miami -- most importantly ... she needs more sleep, and less South Beach.

Tiff was out Wednesday in L.A. when a photog asked her what went wrong. In a nutshell ... she's been burning it at both ends. She said, "I've slept in my bed a grand total of 28 days" for all of 2018. She added she now knows exactly what happens when your brain is fried. 

That being said ... she admits going hard on the party scene didn't help either. As Tiff put it, "Miami is a really dope city, and I probably shouldn't turn up before work."

She also found out who her real friends are, and ran down the all-star list of comedians who reached to show love and support.

As for the haters -- Tiffany has a message for them too.

'School of Rock' Grown Kids Reunite Over the Holidays ... No Dewey Though

1/2/2019 9:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The "School of Rock" nostalgia continued over the holidays as a bunch of kids who acted in the movie got together for a 15-year reunion ... but this meetup was missing 1 key person.

Becca Brown -- who played Katie, the bassist in the 2003 flick -- tells TMZ ... a bunch of the cast members stay in touch through a group text and a good chunk of them happened to find themselves in NYC over New Year's Eve weekend. 

We're told seven of the now young adults from 'SoR' met up at Wilfie & Nell in the West Village for food and drinks ... and, of course, posed for group photos. The young rockers who made it include James Hosey (Marco), Brian Falduto (Billy), Becca Brown (Katie), Zachary Infante (Gordon), Aleisha Lanae Allen (Alicia), Caitlin Hale (Marta) and Angelo Massagli (Frankie).

Fun fact ... Angelo and Caitlin are now dating. So yes, Marta and Frankie became a thing in real life. 

One notable absence was Jack Black, who played rocker-turned-teacher Dewey Finn. Jack's been touring lately with his band, Tenacious D, but he's still found time to reunite with the "School of Rock" kids lately. Just not this time around.

Wanna feel old? Just check out how much these kids have changed since the film came out.

Demi Lovato New BF Makes Me Smile a Lot!!! Aspen Doesn't Hurt Either

1/2/2019 9:35 AM PST

Demi Lovato looked almost angelic while ringing in the New Year, clearly sticking to her new battle cry -- to never take another day for granted.

The singer and her BF, Henry Levy, celebrated the New Year in Aspen. She was all smiles and dressed to the nines -- flowy, long white fur coat (we know, can't tell if it's real or faux) with boots and a very color-poppin' Hermes Birkin bag.

Demi's jewelry choices might also raise eyebrows -- she's rocking a diamond ring on her left ring finger -- y'know, that one. It doesn't look very engagement-y, and the relationship is only a couple months old -- but stranger things have happened.

In any event, it's clear Demi's leaving her tumultuous 2018 in the rearview mirror by looking like a million bucks in 2019.

Exclusive Video

Trey Songz put rumors that he's been dating Steve Harvey's 21-year-old stepdaughter to rest on Monday ... by confirming they're absolutely boo'd up heading into 2019.

The R&B singer was performing at the Regency Ballroom in San Francisco for New Year's Eve and people couldn't help but notice a girl was clinging to his back with her arms wrapped around his torso as he sang. Well, that was Lori Harvey ... Steve's youngest stepchild.

She showed up on his Insta story earlier in the night wearing the same gold dress that was seen on the chick wrapping him up. No question ... it was her, and they're into each other.

Trey and Lori have been hanging out a lot through the holidays, and it now seems they're an item in the new year. 

Lori's an up-and-coming model who's walked for Fashion Week in Milan and Paris. It's clear why she's caught his eye ... she's gorgeous. 

J Lo & A-Rod New Year, Same Us Hit the Gym to Kick Off 2019

1/1/2019 1:27 PM PST

Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez's New Year's resolution appears to be a simple one -- keep looking good together ... and they got it started with a trip to the gym.

J Lo and A-Rod were spotted hitting Gold's Gym Tuesday morning in Venice Beach, where they showed off their toned figures heading in and out of the building.

It's interesting ... Jen appeared on NBC's New Year's Eve broadcast Monday night, but the performance might've been prerecorded ... as she showed up on Alex's Instagram story throughout the day and night surrounded by her family as they celebrated.

Either way, it's clear how she maintains that killer bod. No. Days. Off.

Tiffany Haddish Rough New Year's Eve Performance 'I Wish It Was Better'

1/1/2019 1:46 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1:46 PM PT -- Tiffany tweeted about her show, saying, "Yes this happened. I wish it was better Miami. I prayed on it and I have a strong feeling this will never happened again."

Tiffany Haddish had a difficult New Year's Eve during her show in Miami ... especially when the crowd started to disperse mid-show.

Tiffany, who's almost always hilarious and on point, was performing at the James L. Knight Center to a packed house. But, her set wasn't connecting with the audience, and she clearly knew it. At one point, as some people started leaving, she said, "This is weird for me. Now, this is going to be on TMZ or whatever."

During her routine, Tiffany talks about her mom getting out of a mental institution ... she says she told her mom to punch her in the back and burp her. She also griped about her family asking her for money. She says her sister wanted a refrigerator and a new stove, but Tiffany said she told her sister she had just paid her rent, so she just gave her a cooler.

Tiffany changed things up, cracked open a bottle of Ciroc and started drinking with the audience.

It's interesting ... the day of her show, Tiffany posted a video promoting the upcoming comedy performance, saying she had partied the whole night and morning before.

Happy New Year!

'Pretty Little Liars' Star Shay Mitchell Reveals She Miscarried in 2018

1/1/2019 10:25 AM PST

"Pretty Little Liars" star Shay Mitchell rung in the new year with some tragic news for her followers ... she miscarried in 2018.

The actress was going over her year in review on her Instagram story, and toward the end she revealed the miscarriage by posting a photo of a sonogram with an emoji of a broken heart and a caption right before that read, "Lastly, although it was an amazing year, it didn't come without some hardships."

She then put up a lengthy message about the facade that is social media which read, in part, "We all have to deal with various struggles and challenges in life. And sometimes it's easier to only showcase the good times on social media, which is what leads many people to criticize it for its lack of authenticity."

She continued ... "Having so many people follow me on Instagram and read my posts is both incredibly humbling and hugely uplifting. The support and affection that so many of you show me lifts me up during even my darkest days, one of which happened last year after I miscarried and lost the child of my hopes and dreams." 

Shay did not disclose who the father was, but she's recently been linked to Matte Babel, a TV host and reporter. He hasn't commented on any miscarriage himself.
