1/16/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113-inauguration-strippers-strip-club-fun-art-TMZ-GETTY-01Donald Trump will be dressing up for his inauguration as the 45th Prez, but just down the street a bunch of strippers will be dressing down and making their bank accounts great again.

We surveyed the D.C. landscape and found most of the big gentlemen's clubs are pulling out all the stops next weekend. They include ...

ARCHIBALD'S -- Come for the naughty interns and administration staffers party next Thursday night. And, on inauguration night, there's the Grand Inaugural Ball featuring strippers in Trump's signature red hat. The club normally closes at 2 AM, but that night it's open till 5. They'll also serve Fruity Pebbles French toast before closing and inaugural breakfast sandwiches.

The MPIRE CLUB -- No "last call" here. The club will stay open the entire inauguration weekend (watch out for the strippers at 11 AM Sunday). They don't serve food here, but they're making an exception because they think they'll be a market for breakfast sandwiches and waffles.

CAMELOT SHOWBAR -- Anybody who's anybody will breeze though this joint. We're told a bunch of VIP tables have already been booked. They'll serve champagne with the lap dances. And, get this ... they're serving salmon and Australian lamb chops!!!

Paris Jackson Making 2017 Her Bitch!!!

1/16/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0113_paris-jackson-getty-1Paris Jackson is making her move ... to conquer Hollywood -- with a little help from Lee Daniels.

We've learned Daniels met with Paris and discussed a possible role in his new Fox show, "Star," and she's seriously considering it.

That's just the beginning. We're told she's already booked 3 covers of major high-fashion mags, the first of which hits the stands this month.

And, we're told, the 18-year-old has been approached by multiple modeling agencies which think she's as marketable as any high-end model.  

Paris has also been approached by several major brands that want her face on their products.

It's an amazing transformation for someone who was once shielded from public view and covered with masks and bundles of clothing when she ventured out.

Paris had some major issues as a teen, for which she received help, and as a result she wants to use her platform to be an advocate for people dealing with addiction and recovery.

God knows she understands tragedy and family drama. But she's coming out on the other end more than ok.

Kristin Chenoweth Joe Mixon Deserves Second Chance 'He's Doing His Work'

1/16/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hollywood star Kristin Chenoweth thinks Joe Mixon has done enough to earn a second chance at life ... saying his NFL future shouldn't be ruined because of his 2014 assault.

Kristin is an Oklahoma native and a huge Sooners fan ... so when we got her out in L.A. we had to get her take on Mixon ... who's leaving Norman for an NFL future.

It's an NFL future some aren't sure he'll have ... with rumblings being that teams -- and some agents -- might not want the PR disaster of having to talk about Mixon brutally punching a woman on tape.

Chenoweth clearly thinks that's wrong ... telling our camera guy she thinks Mixon is "doing his work" to become a better person and has earned a second chance.

It's an interesting take ... since Chenoweth is one of the first prominent female voices to show public support for Mixon.

TMZ Sports talked to former 'Ultimate Fighter' winner Julianna Pena, who's currently ranked #3 in the division and set to face Valentina Shevchenko on Fox later this month.

Gonna be a good year in the Octagon, people.

1/15/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ronda Rousey could have a golden opportunity to improve her stand-up fighting game -- because Floyd Mayweather says he's willing to work with her ... if she'll give him a chance.

We got Floyd leaving Pristine Jewelers in NYC (he dropped roughly $200k on gifts for family and friends) -- when he told us he has nothing against Ronda and would love to help her out.

"I'll work with her if she's willing to work with me," Floyd said.

Ronda has blasted Floyd in the past over his domestic violence conviction. Floyd fired back by saying he makes way more money than she does.

But now, Mayweather says it's water under the bridge for him ... and it's her call.

BONUS -- Floyd also gives some financial advice on how to invest if you're looking to become a billionaire. So, pay attention ...

Blac Chyna Time to Pay, She Owes Us Millions! Alleged Managers Claim

1/15/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0109-blac-chyna-tmzBlac Chyna's going radio silent on 2 men who claim she stiffed them for millions after they helped make her the celebrity she is today.

Jason Alston and Lincoln Hayes of Infinite Grind Multimedia say they signed Blac Chyna back in June 2007 to a 10-year contract which made them her managers. They claim the deal called for her to fork over 50% of her earnings during that period.

The men claim they discovered her when she was stripping in D.C. and helped her score covers on Black Men and Straight Stuntin magazines. This was all before she hit it big and got in with the Kardashians -- but under the deal they're still her managers, and they want their cut.

Alston and Hayes claim she owes them at least $3 mil in unpaid fees -- they can't pinpoint the exact amount because they believe she's made deals without them. They're threatening to sue if she doesn't pay up by June.

We reached out to Blac Chyna, but she had no comment.

Larry Johnson to Tyreek Hill 'Don't Blow Your 2nd Chance ... Like I Did'

1/15/2017 12:45 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ex-KC Chiefs running back Larry Johnson says he knows what Tyreek Hill is going through as a guy with off-the-field legal issues ... but tells TMZ Sports he wants Hill to learn from his mistakes.

"I've lived through the same thing he's lived through," Johnson tells us ... "I just ran my second chances dry."

Of course, Johnson was a beast on the field -- but he was arrested multiple times during his career for incidents that included alleged violent run-ins with women.

As for Hill, he got in trouble before his NFL career began -- when he pleaded guilty to domestic violence against his pregnant girlfriend in 2015.

Johnson has advice for Hill moving forward, which essentially boils down to this -- don't squander your 2nd chance.

Stephen Collins '7th Heaven' Mom Forgives ... Cast Ready for Reunion

1/15/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Stephen Collins confessing to child molestation won't stop his "7th Heaven" wife, Catherine Hicks, from sharing the screen with him again for a reunion.

Catherine tells us she was shocked to hear the allegations of Collins molesting at least one underage girl. The tape of Collins talking about the incident surfaced in 2014, but Catherine says she never saw a hint of that on the set of their hit show.

It appears Hicks has had a change of heart on Collins. Last year she told us Stephen's character would have to be dead for the cast to get back together, but now she says she was joking.

She's ready to forgive if the reunion the show's creator hinted at really happens.

The UFC bantamweight champ was telling us about what fighters he'd like to take out next ... and the Irish superstar was right on the list ... next to Jose Aldo and T.J. Dillashaw.

Garbrandt just fought at 135 lbs and Conor has fought at 145, so they're not too far off.

Plus, they almost got into a brawl on "The Ultimate Fighter" back in 2015 ... and it seems like Cody's got some unfinished business.

1/15/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

WBA boxing champ Daniel Jacobs says he's sure he's gonna beat GGG in their upcoming fight and all because he's already bested an opponent way tougher than Golovkin ... cancer.

Jacobs was diagnosed with osteosarcoma -- a rare form of bone cancer -- in 2011 and missed nearly 19 months from the sport before resuming his career.

We got Jacobs in L.A. and he told us that fight was the toughest of his life ... and because of that ordeal he has absolutely ZERO fear of GGG, who's knocked out his last 23 opponents.

The two men are set to square off May 18 in MSG ... and besides his record against cancer, DJ has one more reason you should bet on him to win ... and it's a solid one.
