'My Five Wives' Dad

Thanksgiving Breaks the Bank

11/27/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1126_my_five_wives_thnksgiving_compositeNo way to sugarcoat it -- being a polygamist is expensive during the holidays -- but "My Five Wives" patriarch Brady Williams has it more than covered this time around.

Brady has 31 mouths to feed this year ... and the grocery list is both impressive and financially depressing.

  • 2 Turkeys
  • 1 Ham
  • 5 lbs of Yams
  • 20 lbs of Mashed Potatoes
  • 2 large bowls of Stuffing
  • 1-2 gallons of Gravy
  • 3 dozen Dinner Rolls
  • 5 large Salads
  • 1 pot of Corn
  • 2 large Veggie Trays
  • 1 large Cheese & Cracker Tray
  • 1 large tray of Cheese-Stuffed Celery
  • 8 cans of Black Olives
  • 4 large cans of Stuffed Green Olives (a family fave)
  • 1 large jar of Cranberry Sauce
  • 4 quarts of Baby Dill Pickles
  • 3-4 gallons of Holiday Beverage

That doesn't include dessert ... we're told the Williams clan can choose from 15-20 varieties of pie.

At least they'll be saving on electricity ... all electronics are banned on Thanksgiving. No iPods, computers, phones or TVs permitted.

So you plop yourself on the sofa and do what?

EXCLUSIVE

112514_dina_lohan_launch_v2Dina Lohan thinks ex-hubby Michael's wedding is fake ... because she says he told her so.

Dina was breezing through LAX Tuesday when our photog asked her about Michael Lohan and Kate Major tying the knot. Dina, who seems ... generally confused ... repeatedly says Michael disavowed taking vows.  

In the end, Dina is cool with Kate, and bids us farewell with a curious goodbye generally reserved for the freshly dead.

Three Dallas Cowboys legends are back on the same sideline ... rooting on their daughters who all play in the same elite youth soccer league ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

Emmitt Smith, Tony Dorsett and Charles Haley -- together they have 9 Super Bowls, 17 Pro Bowls and 2 Hall of Fame busts -- and they get together every weekend as soccer dads. 

"[Our daughters] are out there ballin', Dorsett tells us ... "The apples don't fall far from the tree."

Tony -- who was inducted into the Hall of Fame in '94 -- says his daughter plays on the same team with Haley's kid ... and even though Emmit's daughter plays on another squad, "They go head to head sometimes."

"When we're together, we talk about football. It's not usually about the old days. We talk about what's going on in the league now," Dorsett says. 

Tony says the guys are all very supportive of each other's kids -- "All of the girls are very talented" -- but says Charles' daughter is a star among stars. 

Pretty cool, right?

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Miley Cyrus Can Party with My Fam

EXCLUSIVE

112514_rfk_jr_launch_v2Get ready for inflatable penises and people in teddy bear suits all over Hyannis Port (again?) ... because Robert F. Kennedy Jr. says Miley Cyrus is welcome at the Kennedy Compound.

Since Miley started dating Patrick Schwarzenegger, we've wondered how Miley and her antics would fit in with the buttoned-up Kennedy clan.

Sounds like RFK Jr. and his wife Cheryl Hines had a summit about this very topic -- check out his endorsement for Cyrus. Of course, the real question might be ... can they keep up with Miley?

You've been warned, H.P.

Michael Lohan

Marries Baby Mama

Lindsay Left In The Dark

11/25/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1124-michael-lohan-married-TMZ-01Michael Lohan has finally made an honest woman out of GF Kate Major ... but no one alerted his kids.

Lindsay Lohan's old man got hitched Oct. 30th in a private ceremony at Hillsboro Beach in Florida. It was so private neither Lindsay nor Mike Jr. were invited ... or even told.

Here's the thing. When Lindsay finally did find out ... she didn't care.

We're told Michael's motivation was his soon-to-be-born child. This is #2 for Michael and Kate.   

They've had a rough ride with multiple mutual arrests. Hopefully "till death do us part" comes naturally.

Halle to Gabriel

You're Trying to Make Our Daughter White!

11/24/2014 11:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1124-halle-tmz-02Halle Berry just took Gabriel Aubry to court ... claiming he's trying to make their 6-year-old daughter white.

Halle was furious Gabriel was straightening Nahla's naturally-curly hair, lightening it with highlights and she is convinced it's because he does not want the girl to appear to be African American.

Halle didn't show in court Monday morning, but her lawyer Steve Kolodny did, along with Gabriel and after a lot of arguing the judge ruled NEITHER Halle nor Gabriel could change Nahla's look from its natural state.

So the judge is allowing Nahla's hair to grow back naturally.

Score one for Berry.

EXCLUSIVE

1124-robin-thick-april-at-usc-game-wm-3Robin Thicke must be serious about his new girl ... because she's now hanging out with his kid.

Thicke, his boy Julian and his super young GF April Love Geary were snapped at the USC/UCLA game at the Rose Bowl Saturday night ... where they got a good view of the Bruins whooping the Trojans.

As TMZ first reported, while Thicke has been coy about his dating situation, 19-year-old April has been going full bore, posting photos that were snapped inside Thicke's home. 

One thing about April ... she LOVES the spotlight.

Casey Kasem

I Believe in Reincarnation

Via Forest Lawn

11/24/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Casey Kasem Reincarnation
Casey Kasem wanted to be buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery in L.A. because he felt that was his path to reincarnation ... this according to his longtime friend and security guard.

Rick Hernandez says he worked as the Executive Security Officer for Casey and his family for years, and became one of the famed DJ's closest friends.

Hernandez wrote a letter to the judge in the case Casey's daughter filed to bring her dad's body back from Norway, where it's been rotting since August.  

Hernandez says in the letter ... one day he asked Casey if he believed in God or the afterlife. He says Casey responded ... he believed in reincarnation. Hernandez asked if he planned to be cremated or buried, and Kasem responded that he wanted to be buried and specified Forest Lawn.

The letter wasn't enough to sway the judge, who ruled Kerri had no authority to undermine Casey's wife Jean, who has kept the body in a Norway mortuary for 3 months.

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Royce Reed

Also Investigated for Child Abuse

11/23/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Dwight Howard Baby Mama Child Abuse
Dwight Howard's son has had a rougher time than anyone thought ... the baby mama who reported Dwight to Children's Services for belting their son was herself investigated for the exact same thing.

The Florida Dept. of Children and Families (DCF) got a call in February from 6-year-old Braylon's school, informing authorities the boy had been belted on the back of his neck and leg for using "potty words."  

According to docs, baby mama Royce Reed fessed up and said she did indeed belt the boy because he "dropped the f-bomb" in school. Authorities checked out the kid and there were no obvious marks ... she told them she only hit him once with a child fabric belt. The case was closed out, but school officials spoke with Reed and accused her of using excessive force on the child.

TMZ broke the story ... Reed called DCF in August, saying Howard belted Braylon badly ... and Howard subsequently copped to it.  Howard is currently the subject of a criminal child abuse investigation for the incident.

Ryan Gosling

My Stalker

Thinks We're Soulmates

11/20/2014 3:06 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1120_ryan_gosling_tmzRyan Gosling just got a restraining order against a woman he says has been stalking him for 3 months because she believes she's his "twin flame."

According to legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Gosling says Grace Marie Del Villar has been sending harassing emails and packages ... in one case she sent a torn-out page from a magazine featuring Eva Mendes and stapled a copy of her contact info to the page.

She has also bombarded the inbox of Ryan's sister with messages, saying, "I am kicking your brother's head."

The tipping point came on Oct. 28th, when Del Villar traveled from NYC to L.A. and showed up at Gosling's family residence, rang the security gate and said she was "Ryan's twin." She left a doll catalog at the gate.

She's ordered to stay 100 yards away from Ryan, Eva, and their daughter Esmeralda.

His sister Mandi also got a restraining order against the stalker.

Jimmy Ruffin

Motown Legend Dead At 78

11/19/2014 12:07 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119-jimmy-ruffin-getty-01Jimmy Ruffin, the crooner who was a staple in Motown for decades, has passed away at the age of 78.

Ruffin reached legendary Motown status in 1966 with his hit "What Becomes of the Brokenhearted" ... and had incredible staying power, hitting the Top 10 yet again with "Hold On To My Love" in 1980.

Ruffin's family ties were just as impressive ... his younger brother, David Ruffin, was the lead singer of The Temptations. David was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989.

Ruffin's 2 kids -- Philicia and Jimmy Lee -- confirmed that he passed Monday at his home in Las Vegas.

Brokenhearted indeed.

Dwight Howard

Baby Mama Throws Son's

B-day Party At Hooters

11/19/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1119-dwight-howard-son-instagram-01
A seven-year-old boy should be having his birthday at Chuck E. Cheese's, NOT Hooters ... but that's exactly what Dwight Howard's baby mama did for their son's 7th birthday. 

"Basketball Wives" star Royce Reed, the boy's mother, posted the photo on her Instagram showing Braylon grinning from ear-to-ear ... and it probably wasn't because of the wings.

As TMZ first reported ... Howard is angling for full custody, while simultaneously being investigated for child abuse.

In court docs, Howard has accused Reed of exposing Braylon to sexual situations. Howard claims his son has witnessed Reed engage in sexual acts with her "numerous companions."

We're told Howard believes this photo is just the latest example of his son being exposed to sex.

A source close to Royce says her son's birthday party was at a Monkey Joe's bounce house earlier in the day -- with his classmates -- and she merely stopped at Hooters for food. The source also says Royce has never had any man in and out of her house, and has never exposed Braylon to sex.

A rep for Howard tells TMZ, "Dwight isn't going to engage in the back and forth about his son in the media. He only wishes that his mother would do the same and protect the boy instead of exposing him.‎"

Floyd Mayweather's Son

14-Year-Old Blasts Boxer

... He's a Coward

11/19/2014 8:53 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1119-floyd-mayweather-instagram-01Floyd Mayweather's 14-year-old son is lashing out against his father -- claiming he's a coward for refusing to admit he beat the crap out of his mother Josie Harris back in 2010.

Koraun Mayweather spoke with USA Today with his mother's permission and described what happened in September 2010 ... when he witnessed Floyd punching and kicking Josie ... so he snuck out of his Vegas home and alerted security, who then summoned police.

"[My dad] said to lock my door and stay in my room. I sat there and thought about what I was going to do next ... just for like a minute."

Koraun said he eventually "ran back out my bathroom and then hopped over the gate and went to the main entrance gate. I just told [the guard] that my mom was getting hurt and to call the ambulance and the police."

Eventually cops arrived ... and Koraun told investigators what he saw. Mayweather pled guilty to a reduced battery domestic violence charge and was sentenced to 90 days behind bars. Koraun says he's upset that his father never apologized for the incident publicly.

Koraun also says he still spends time with his father -- but he's less than enthusiastic about it.

"We just hang out. We either watch a movie or something, or go bowling. I find [boxing] boring. It is just like how people sit in the ring and fight for 12 rounds and it gets boring after a while."

Floyd's team has yet to respond to the story.
