'A Dog's Purpose' Picketed by PETA We Will Shame the Audience

1/23/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0122-peta-protest-a-dogs-purpose-TMZ-GETTY-01People who want to see "A Dog's Purpose" will be greeted by animal rights activists and taunted if they buy tickets and enter the theater.

PETA organizers tell TMZ they have plans to hit theaters across the country ... protesting the treatment of the animal actors in the flick. As you know, the controversy erupted after TMZ posted video of a German Shepherd in distress when a handler tried to pull the canine into the water.

The studio says the dog was treated humanely throughout the filming and the 40 second incident was harmless ... the dog was willing to go in the water but got freaked out because producers changed the point of entry.

We're told the picketers will be reminiscent of striking union workers, protesting scabs who attempt to cross the picket line.

The studio already canceled the Hollywood premiere and press junkets for fear of violence by animal rights groups.

The movie opens Friday.

Kim Kardashian I've Got A Plan ... My Kimojis Are Gonna Take Over The Retail World

1/23/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1120_kimoji_store_compositeKim Kardashian wants to bring her Kimoji gear to stores ... and pretty soon we could see shops all across the world. 

Kim's company filed docs asking to expand her famous Kimoji brand to include retail stores that would sell apparel, makeup bags, stickers, jewelry, accessories and a slew of other items. 

Sources close to Kim tell us plans are in the early stages, but there's a good chance Kim's plan will include global pop-up shops to hawk the gear ... just like hubby Kanye did for his Yeezy clothing line and little sis Kylie has for her makeup line.

The Kimoji brand has been insanely successful, but the gear has only been limited to online sales ... so Kim's looking to take on the retail world too.

Good news ... a huge laser removal company feels your pain and wants to help eradicate the bad memories.

We spoke to LaserAway President Todd Heckman who says his company is offering free removal for tatted San Diego residents looking to wipe the Chargers tats off their bodies. 

Heckman says the 6 to 8 sessions usually cost between $1,000 to $5,000 ... but they're willing to cover the costs to help fans cope with their loss.

'Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood' Star Off The Hook In Uber Battery Case

1/23/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-teairra-mari-tmz-02Teairra Mari just had her Uber beatdown case dropped ... because the driver refused to take the stand.

Prosecutors moved to dismiss 3 charges against the "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star for allegedly beating the hell out of a driver and stealing his charger ... the judge agreed and tossed the case.

More good news for Mari ... according to court docs, her $26k bail money was returned. You'll recall ... Mari was a wanted woman this past summer when she was a no-show in court, but she got her act together and surrendered to cops.

As for why the driver flaked ... Mari's attorney, Lonnie Brandon, tells us the driver knew his story wouldn't hold water.

Either way ... Mari's a free woman again. We're also guessing she switched to Lyft.

We got Richard, aka Toby Ziegler, enjoying a sucker in Beverly Hills ... and he says Donald Trump's trying to make a sucker of the media by holding them at bay. It's a page right out of 'West Wing.'

EXCLUSIVE

0120-jax-taylor-brittany-cartwright-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01"Vanderpump Rules" stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are getting their own reality TV spin-off ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Bravo -- which will air the series -- tell us they started filming a new show for Jax and GF Brittany a few months ago in Kentucky ... where her family lives.

We're told the focus of the show will be Brittany's family pressuring her to get hitched to the 'Vanderpump' bad boy ... but he's just not into sealing the deal.

Jax is a notorious player on 'Vanderpump,' and a commitment-phobe ... unclear if he's sold on the idea of marriage.

Bravo has one big fear ... that they won't be together by the time this thing airs in the summer.

EXCLUSIVE

0120-teresa-guidice-jersey-house-torn-down-TMZ-01Teresa and Joe Giudice's former home is officially history ... actually it's really just dust now.

The pad that was once featured on 'RHNJ' has been demolished, just as the new owners promised it would be. It came down Friday and the next step is to sell the lot, we're told.

As we first told you, the new owners -- who want to remain anonymous -- made out when the Giudices went belly-up ... snatching up the pad in August for $127k.

Joe and Teresa bought it for $347k in 2005 but lost it to foreclosure during all their legal problems.

Buh-bye to the bad juju?

EXCLUSIVE

The Braylon Edwards college comeback is in full swing -- and why? Because the ex-NFL star says a degree will unlock the door to get him into business with his BILLIONAIRE friends.

Sounds like a damn fine reason to us!

33-year-old Braylon has re-enrolled at Michigan -- where he was huge football star from 2001 to 2004 -- telling TMZ Sports he NEEDS that degree to crush it in the next phase of his life.

"I moved in a lot of circles with a lot of millionaires a lot of billionaires that have business ideas and concepts and they wanna work with you. They wanna invite you to that circle," Edwards says.

"But that's the one thing they ask you ... 'Do you have that degree?'"

There's more ... Braylon says he's also down to work with the football team while he's back on campus.

He's also revisiting his old fraternity -- but just to mentor and give back ... "No keggers for me!"

Marilyn Monroe Mausoleum Marker Up for Grabs

1/22/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-marilyn-monroe-grave-marker-getty-2Marilyn Monroe fans have a chance to score a pretty rare relic -- one of the markers on her final resting place ... but it won't be possible unless you've got a fortune. 

The bronze marker was removed in the '80s from Marilyn's mausoleum at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in L.A. and replaced with a new one ... which happens every so often because fans manhandle it and it gets worn.

This is the marker that ID'd her final resting place. Now, more than 30 years later, it's up for grabs.

Heritage Auctions tells us opening bid is $10k, but it's expected to haul in a lot more -- a marker from the '70s went for $212,500 in 2015.

Online bidding will begin in about a month and the live auction will be on March 18.

Donald Trump's inauguration speakers -- from reverends, rabbis and bishops to Jackie Evancho -- walked away from the historic day with way more than a memory ... like some gold to spruce up their swag bag.

We got hold of a bag that included gold White House cuff links. There was also a mug and "Blair House" book chronicling the history of the President's Guest House. 

That's not all ... speakers were also treated to flights and hotel accommodations for 2 in D.C. from Wednesday through Saturday. They also got police escorts to each inaugural event.

Sweet!
