Melania Trump Slovenia's Turnt Up For Next First Lady

1/20/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0119-main-melania-trump-tmz-getty-03Melania Trump will become the second First Lady since 1825 to have been born outside the U.S. ... and her hometown in Slovenia's ready to party it up in her honor.

We're told the mayor in Melania's hometown of Sevnica -- a small town of about 5,000 people -- is so fired up the entire town's getting in on the festivities.

For starters, the landmark Sevnica Castle -- a big tourist attraction -- will offer free admission and tours. The main event will be a YUUUGE inauguration viewing party at Rotary klub Sevnica.

Then ... free dinner at the local inn (but $40 donations would be nice) ... and all the loot will go toward buying new equipment for the Sevnica Hospital ER.

As for what's the grub -- a mix of Slovenian and American cuisine.

BTW ... John Quincy Adams' wife, Louisa Catherine, who was born in London, was previously the first and only First Lady born outside the U.S.

Jimmy Carter Short, Sweet Advice for Trump ... Now Let's Talk Peanut Butter!!!

1/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Carter's got some pretty simple tips for very-soon-to-be President Donald Trump ... but it's definitely easier said than done.

We got the 39th President of the U.S. at the Reagan Airport making his way to the inauguration festivities, and along with some advice for Trump ... he extends a pretty sweet invitation to President Obama for his retirement days.

But, all of that pales in comparison to Carter's passion for peanut butter -- the former prez dishes on how to properly chow down on PB. Hint ... there's more to work with than jelly.

Donald Trump Inaugural Committee Eats a Million On Show Gone Awry

1/20/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118_ShowStoppers_REXDonald Trump's campaign committee just blew a fortune on an act that was supposed to perform for free, but ended up costing millions.

It all started out as a favor to Trump, courtesy of Vegas mogul Steve Wynn. The Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas has a house act -- ShowStoppers, which performs Broadway songs and old hits.

Wynn flew the group out to D.C. for a performance at Tuesday's Chairman's Global Dinner. Wynn donated a million dollars to the Inaugural Committee to cover all the costs, or so he thought.

Turns out there are all sorts of huge production expenses ... all tolled, the bill came to over $2 million. It sounds crazy, but our Inaugural Committee sources say the Committee had to pay the additional costs, which was over a million.

It's ironic ... Trump passed on a Hall of Fame Rock & Roll band because they demanded a million bucks.

Future Buses in Hot Chicks ... For Homie's Bday Bash

1/20/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Future and Big Bank Black blazed their own party trail for a friend's birthday -- including a pit stop to rage with a busload of hot chicks -- but predictably ... it ended at the strip club.

The rappers were celebrating big record exec Ricardo's bday in Atlanta Wednesday night. They hit up STK steakhouse, shut it down for a private dinner, and dropped around $37k.

We're told the 3 amigos moved on to Gold Room nightclub -- open just for them -- and bussed in around 20 beautiful women to party. They spent $10k apiece in 2 1/2 hours.

Finally ... they left those hot chicks and met up with a new group at Platinum strip club, throwing down more than $15k for 30 minutes of entertainment.

So, if you're keeping track ... that's around $82k for Ricardo's birthday. Judging by the pics -- it was worth it.

'A Dog's Purpose' Premiere Canceled

1/19/2017 7:49 PM PST
Breaking News

0119-dogs-purpose-poster-01

There will be no premiere for "A Dog's Purpose" because the studio that produced it is still reeling from the video TMZ posted showing it's animal star in distress, and there's worry PETA might create an embarrassing or even violent scene.

Amblin and Universal studios are still reviewing footage that syncs up with the video we posted to determine what happened to Hercules when he clearly was recoiling as his trainer tried pulling him into the water. The studios say the dog is fine and was never abused.

The studios know lots of people are upset after seeing the video and there's particular concern about PETA.

The studios have also canceled the press junkets.

Drew Carey at D.C. Rally Damn, I Missed the Pepper Spray?!

1/19/2017 7:18 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Drew Carey, of all people, narrowly missed inhaling pepper spray fumes, burning signs and violent protesters Thursday night.

We literally bumped into "The Price Is Right" host when he casually walked through the massive anti-Trump rally going down in Washington, D.C. -- where things had taken a violent turn shortly before he arrived. Great timing on his part.

Drew wasn't there for political reasons -- he doesn't have a dog in the fight, and explained why this was more of a family trip for him.

He is doing something inauguration related though on Friday, but he's not expecting any trouble.

'A Dog's Purpose' Hercules Content and Happy Studio Says No Abuse

EXCLUSIVE

Hercules the German Shepherd is back on dry ground, playing with a ball Thursday.

We got this video from the studio ... a day after TMZ posted video of the dog on the set, terrified of entering the water during a shoot for "A Dog's Purpose."

Studio sources tell us they've looked at all the footage and say producers blocked out a scene where the dog was supposed to enter the pool at a designated location.  We're told the dog rehearsed the scene and was fine, but then producers changed the point of entry and that's when Hercules got upset.

EXCLUSIVE

0119-jackie-evancho-singing-TMZ-02Jackie Evancho has the biggest performance of her life Friday, but she's still got the pipes to sing for Donald Trump Thursday night.

Sources close to Jackie tell TMZ ... she was asked by the Inaugural Committee to surprise the Prez-elect at the black tie candlelight dinner tonight at Union Station. We're told they specifically wanted her to sing one of Trump's fave songs -- "Nessun Dorma."

Jackie obliged, and our sources say she'll also sing "The Lord's Prayer" and "Somewhere."

Here's the crazy part -- Jackie won't take the stage 'til 9:30 PM, and she has to be up by 6 AM Friday to start getting ready to sing the National Anthem at the inauguration.

We're told her team is doing its best to keep her voice on lockdown tonight by making sure she doesn't talk much, and also giving her lots of tea and honey. They have B12 shots standing by if needed.

TMZ broke the story ... Jackie's committed to singing live at the inauguration, so this is risky business ... but ya can't turn down the President, right?
