trebek’s bin doing ok during break!

BRAVE but feeble-looking Alex Trebek was caught taking out the trash at his Studio City digs by National ENQUIRER cameras! Thirteen months after being rocked by a stage 4 pancreatic cancer diagnosis, the “Jeopardy!” host, 79, is still waging war against the disease while quarantined at home with his wife, Jean. Ironically, Jean, 55, recently declared their forced lockdown a “much-needed break.” “Although we are physically confined to a limited amount of outings and gatherings, we also have the great opportunity to truly be or invest in ourselves at a deeper level,” she touchingly wrote online. The couple have been holed up in Alex’s estate since March when the TV quiz show halted production due to coronavirus concerns. Insiders said the host — who has admitted to struggling with the side effects of chemotherapy…

MONEYBAGS Brad Pitt is blowing big bucks on building a string of dream houses, and sources said his spendthrift ways are making ex Angelina Jolie blow her top!

But according to an insider, Angie is hemorrhaging cash and wants money now! “She doesn’t want to wait 20 years until Brad’s vanity projects bear fruit!” Though the “Maleficent” witch’s net worth…

willis ditches wife to quarantine with demi & daughters!

BRUCE WILLIS is hunkering down in quarantine with exwife Demi Moore and their daughters. But while that may be warming the hearts of fans of the ’90s “it” couple, sources dished the “Die Hard” hunk’s current spouse might not be feeling the same sort of nostalgia! Insiders claimed Emma Heming, the actor’s wife of 11 years, has been publicly supportive of the bizarre arrangement but is privately seething because Bruce — who’s father to her kids, Mabel Ray, 8, and Evelyn Penn, 5 — has chosen his former family over theirs! “Emma has openly backed Bruce’s devotion to his older daughters. But this takes things to a whole other level she never anticipated,” said an insider. “Her patience has been worn down to the bone. It’s led to a crisis in their marriage!” Bruce,…

lecher lauer has new gal – & her pals worry!

SUPER-sleaze Matt Lauer has found love again — but his girlfriend’s pals are alarmed by her choice and worry he’ll cheat on her, just like he did to his ex-wife! The fallen “Today” host was spotted taking public relations guru and former cruise ship entertainer Shamin Abas to his New Zealand home in December — and it has her friends on red alert! “You’re always worried about a person you care about, and she’s at an age where hopefully she’s learned certain wisdoms about who to stay away from and who to go toward,” a well-placed source told The National ENQUIRER. “She knows better and has been in relationships and marriages before!” Twice-married socialite Shamin, 51, has known the notorious 62-year-old womanizer for years — even before he was fifired from NBC…

CARING boss Blake Shelton has been forced to close his restaurants and cancel the bands booked to play there — but he is still paying his staff! “The Voice” coach also vowed to start fundraising to help musicians who perform at his venues, while delaying the launch of his new $15 million venture in Florida amid the pandemic. Gwen Stefani’s longtime love, who opened his first Ole Red restaurant in 2017, has had to suspend operations in Nashville and Gatlinburg, Tenn., as well as in his hometown of Tishomingo in Oklahoma. A staff member at the Oklahoma branch confirmed to The National ENQUIRER the opening of the Florida eatery has been delayed —with Blake, 43, also canceling remaining dates on his Friends and Heroes tour. “Blake is committed to doing what he can for…

playboy mansion revamp swinging into action!

THE crumbling Playboy Mansion is getting a much-needed face-lift! As The National ENQUIRER reported after legendary Lothario Hugh Hefner died, the iconic X-rated playground was riddled with mold spores that may have contributed to his death, caused by respiratory failure. What’s more, building permits reveal it needs major repairs for water damage, termite damage and dry rot. Billionaire beer baron Daren Metropoulos plunked down $100 million for the mansion in 2016 and allowed bunny boss Hef to live there until he died at 91 on Sept. 27, 2017. Now the 36-year-old suds tycoon plans sweeping improvements to the property, according to permits filed with the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety. The upgrades include building a luxurious spa jacuzzi and a one-story solarium, adding nearly 4,000 square feet to the underground space, enlarging the…
