Jeremy Meeks I'm with Bella On Special Deliveries ... You're Welcome, Amber

6/22/2017 9:02 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Jeremy Meeks and Postmates sure know how to market well -- they turned a one-off jokey endorsement from Bella Hadid into a full-on campaign with Amber Rose.

Jeremy got hired by Postmates this week -- at least for Wednesday -- to deliver a plate of deviled eggs from the L.A. restaurant Commissary to Amber.

Jeremy's collab with Postmates isn't a coincidence -- our Postmates sources tell us it's a send-up of Bella Hadid's shout-out to the company back in April. 

Bella posted a shot of herself with photoshopped deviled eggs, saying ... "Postmates is the best!" 

Looks like Postmates is putting all its eggs in one basket.

Abby Lee Miller My Last Taste of Freedom Will Be ...

6/16/2017 8:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Abby Lee Miller's time as a free woman is winding down, but at least she knows exactly what she wants to do -- and eat -- before she's locked up.

We got the former "Dance Moms" star leaving Catch in Weho Thursday night in pretty good spirits considering she's weeks away from going to prison for a year and a day for fraud.

Although she's leaving one of L.A.'s trendiest restaurants, Abby says she has her sights set on another spot for her last meal before the big house -- particularly one delicious menu item.

Gotta say -- it's a pretty good call.

Hawaiian Pizza Creator Dead at 83

6/12/2017 11:51 AM PDT

Sam Panopoulos -- the guy credited with inventing Hawaiian pizza when he added chunks of pineapples and ham in 1962 -- is dead.

The Greek-Canadian restaurateur unexpectedly died last week at a hospital in London, Ontario. He owned a restaurant in Ontario when he concocted what quickly became a global sensation.

Its popularity spread and remains to this day a staple, but there's arguably equal disdain for the ham/pineapple combination. Earlier this year, Iceland's President suggested banning pineapple on pizzas.

The Prez said it in jest ... but it's no laughing matter for Hawaiian lovers.

Sam was 83.

'Covfefe' Undies, Beer, Coffee or Merch ... The Choice Is Yours!

6/6/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The race is on to nab Donald Trump's typo word of the year, "covfefe" ... and that means it could end up plastered on everything from boobs to beer.

More than a handful of would-be entrepreneurs have filed legal docs to lock down the right to slap covfefe on shirts, sweaters, tank tops, pants, socks and all the other typical clothes for men, women and children. That's the standard stuff.

There's also talk of cranking out covfefe leisure suits, PJs, panties, thongs, bras and even clogs. Also, at least one brewery has also filed to attach it to a beer -- while another guy wants it for a coffee brew.

Gotta say, covfefe clogs seems like a front-runner. If you're into that sorta thing. 

Cleveland Cavs Steak Night Turn Up ... Before NBA Finals

6/1/2017 11:38 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

LeBron James and the Cavs went big the night before Game 1 of the NBA Finals -- teaming up for a big dinner at a famous S.F. steakhouse ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The team hit up EPIC Steak -- the same place SF Giants star Hunter Pence had his crazy "Game of Thrones" themed wedding last year. 

James and the rest of the team ate like kings -- feasting on steak, shrimp, meatballs, filet mignon and wild striped bass. 

We're told some of the players had wine to compliment the meal -- but don't freak out, no one got even remotely close to being lit. They left around 11:30. 

After dinner, the guys were in a great mood -- dancing and singing as a team -- before getting back on the team bus.

No word on what the Warriors had for dinner ...

5/27/2017 7:46 AM PDT


Ben Stiller apparently does what lots of people do when they have relationship trouble ... eat.

In Ben's case, he's eating the best in the world ... what appears to be a delicious Margherita pizza courtesy of a chef in Naples, Italy.

As we told you Friday, Ben and his wife of 17 years have separated. They have 2 kids. They have not filed for divorce, but based on their statement about raising their children in the future ... it seems inevitable.

The split also appears amicable.

The Kardashians Favorito Mexican Spot Esta Cerrado On Heels of Roach Issue

5/17/2017 3:12 PM PDT

Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian had their Cinco de Mayo celebration at a Mexican restaurant that had just reopened after handling a roach problem -- and now the joint's closed again for renovations.

A post shared by Jonathan Cheban (@foodgod) on

Casa Vega hosted the sisters, Kris Jenner and their pal Jonathan Cheban on May 5 -- 1 day after it reopened following a health department shutdown. 

County officials temporarily closed the Sherman Oaks spot on May 2 after reportedly getting a tip about las cucarachas. Casa Vega said 2 of 'em were found in a storage room, but they squashed the issue quickly.

Now Casa Vega's closed again, and this time for a full kitchen remodel. The restaurant says it's adding completely new equipment. Employees were outside Wednesday scrubbing down all the gear.

Sorry, Khlo ... no Taco Tuesday next week.

LAX's Petrossian Caviar Bar Sued You Fired Me for Whistleblowing Rotten Roe

5/15/2017 7:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

If you love caviar, you're probably not reading this. But just in case ...

Petrossian Caviar and Champagne Bar in LAX was serving rotten caviar to its schmancy food-loving customers according to an ex-cook ... who says he was fired for calling out the bad eggs.

Donald Gray filed a lawsuit against his former bosses, and according to the docs he says he got sick from tasting expired caviar the honchos insisted he sample before dishing it out to the travelling masses at LAX.

Side note to the rest of the country: Yes, L.A.'s airport is so fancy you can get caviar on the run.

In the suit, Gray says honchos instructed cooks to use expired caviar for their dishes, and even ripped off can labels to hide expiration dates. He claims he got food poisoning after a sampling in 2015, and began filing paperwork to report it, but instead of cooperating ... higher-ups disciplined him for eating caviar on the job ... a breach of company rules.

He was ultimately fired, and is suing for wrongful termination, retaliation and lost wages -- including meal breaks he was allegedly never given. 

The LAX restaurant is not owned or run by the famed (in caviar circles) Petrossian family ... an independent operator merely licenses the name.

Eddie Lacy Gets Fat Bonus Check ... For Droppin' Weight

5/15/2017 11:53 AM PDT
Breaking News

Eddie Lacy's off-season diet plan is already paying off HUGE -- the NFL star just cashed a $55k bonus check from the Seattle Seahawks for hitting a major weight loss milestone.

EL's weight issues are no secret -- and when he signed his new deal with Seattle, the team tied $385k to specific weight loss targets ... since he reportedly blew up to 267 during the off-season. 

The first checkpoint was $55k if Eddie hit 255 by May 15. The good news -- he's 253.

Cha-ching.

The next goal is 250 lbs by June which he must maintain through August. Then he must stay at 245 through the season. Basically, he gets $55k for each month he hits the target weight.

Eddie's tried P90X in the past -- and the program famously slimmed him down into the low 240s.

The big issue for Lacy ... dude loves Chinese food -- LOVES IT.

We did some Yelping -- looks like there's a handful of Chinese joints right near the Hawks practice facility.

Stay strong, Eddie ...

Katy Perry Bon Appe ... Yuck!

5/14/2017 8:52 AM PDT

Katy Perry has officially lost her appetite for cherry pie ... she literally can't stomach another bite.

Katy was out pumping up her new single, "Bon Appetite" this weekend at the Wango Tango concert in Carson, CA -- and noshed on a big ole cherry pie. It's been her big promo gag lately for the song. 

Unfortunately, Katy has her limits when it comes to snacking on pie ... and this time she spit it out with a very grossed out look.

Must not have been her recipe, but that face is priceless.

Reese Witherspoon Back to Her Roots ... Sucking Down Crawfish in NOLA

5/12/2017 7:24 AM PDT

Reese Witherspoon did farm to table the New Orleans way -- getting her hands dirty, going elbow deep in crawfish ... then washing it down with a good drink. 

Reese is down South for work, but she hit up Clesi's for the NOLA delicacy and a quick lesson. Gotta get your seasonings right and cook them critters for just the right amount of time. Looks like everyone enjoyed the meal ... and ice cold hurricanes too.

Reese was born on the Bayou, but raised in Nashville so she's just getting back to her roots.

Pinch tails, suck heads ... Reese knows the deal.
