Sofia Vergara My Face is Gonna ... Cost Ya At Least $15 Million

1/25/2016 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-sofia-vergara-tmzSofia Vergara was used and financially abused by a beauty company ... according to a lawsuit she just filed.

Sofia says Venus Concept blew up images of her and used them to promote its products around the world. In the suit, she says the whole thing started with an innocent Instagram post.

Sofia says she got Venus' Legacy treatment -- it's a skin tightening massage -- in August 2014. She posted a pic of herself on the table ... which got about 40k likes.

However, she says she actually didn't like the treatment and found it  "a waste of time and money with little in the way of any results."

0125-sofia-vergara-venus-suing-INSTAGRAM-01But she says Venus took the ball and ran with it anyway ... putting up photos of her at exhibition booths and on its website with captions like, "Loved by ... bombshell actress Sofia Vergara."

Sofia's beef is Venus never paid her a dime, and she gets MANY dimes to do this kinda work. She says her going rate to endorse a beauty product is a whopping $15 million!

She's suing Venus for at least that much, and she wants the company to yank all materials with her mug. 

LisaRaye McCoy I Said White-a-licious, Not White-n-icious

1/24/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0122-lisaraye-dencia-tmz-facebook-01LisaRaye McCoy is calling BS on a singer who's threatening to sue her after LisaRaye claimed the singer's skin-whitening product causes cancer ... in fact she says she's owed a big, fat 'thank you.'

As we previously reported, pop singer Dencia threatened to sue the "Single Ladies" actress if she didn't retract her statements trashing Dencia's product, Whitenicious. 

LisaRaye's lawyer, C. Anthony Mulrain, just fired back, making several points:

-- LisaRaye never called out Whitenicious, she referenced "Whitealicious" on the radio.

-- Even if a jury felt she was really going after Whitenicious, by Dencia's own admission, it's a God send. Dencia tweeted, "Everytime a celeb or blog mentions Whitenicious, saying anything good or bad, the sales go up 1000%, so hey keep talking." 

-- Dencia can pound sand if she's expecting a retraction. But in the spirit of sisterhood, LisaRaye will post a statement on Facebook and Twitter saying she was not referring to Dencia's product.  

Sounds black and white to us.

LisaRaye McCoy Threatened with Defamation Suit Over Skin Cancer Claims

1/21/2016 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


LisaRaye McCoy may have a new role ... defendant in a defamation lawsuit for her claim that a singer's skin care product causes cancer.

LisaRaye went on Big Tigger's radio show to promote her new movie "Skinned" ... a flick about a young black woman who bleaches her skin to appear whiter. During the interview, she threw shade on Cameroonian pop singer Dencia, who owns a skin care company called Whitenicious.

LisaRaye claimed Whitenicious causes skin cancer. She also claimed people who use the product are left with dark spots on their knuckles and elbows.

Dencia got her lawyer to fire off a demand for a retraction, claiming there is NO evidence Whitenicious causes cancer or creates dark spots on the body. 

We reached out to LisaRaye's lawyer, to find out if she stands by her claims. So far, no word back.

By the way ... Dencia says she's living proof her product works.

Teresa Giudice Jailhouse Makeover Before Release

12/23/2015 9:24 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1222_teresa_guidice_TMZTeresa Giudice learned some mad makeup skills behind bars, because we found out she did her own makeup in her dank cell.

We found out Teresa went to the commissary and bought a bunch of stuff. Turns out the shelves are stocked with glam products, including:

-- powder foundation

-- rustic lip gloss

-- coco butter lotion

-- Wet n Wild face products

-- mini brown eyeliner

-- gold coral lip gloss

By the way, the commissary has better prices than Target ... foundations go for $4 a pop, coco butter runs $2.90 and lip gloss is a very reasonable $3. 

Teresa's cell has a mirror ... not lit for TV, but it did the trick.

And we're told, Teresa applied it herself. We're guessing she has more experience than most of the other inmates.

Kylie Jenner Enraged Lip Worshippers ... We're Getting Blown Off!

12/14/2015 8:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1211_kylie_jenner_lipstick_instagramKylie Jenner's insanely popular lip kit sold out in seconds, but now customers are bitching because they shelled out money, but still don't have shiny lips.

C&S Sales, the company in charge of distribution, has been bombarded with complaints the stuff hasn't arrived ... even though purchasers got confirmation and tracking #s.

We're told some customers think they're getting the wrong kinda lip service -- getting the runaround because the distributor literally can't deliver the $29 kits. They've flooded the company's social media with comments like, "At what point do we report this as fraud?"

Some are taking their beef to the Better Business Bureau. We reached out to C&S, but like the pissed off customers ... haven't heard anything back.

Kris Jenner announced Monday morning the kits have been restocked, and encouraged fans to order quickly -- which doesn't necessarily mean you'll get it quickly.
