Breaking News

What's better than making a caddy follow you around the golf course with hot dogs?

How about making the Stanley Cup do it.

Pittsburgh Penguins star Phil Kessel spent his day on the links with the Holy Grail Monday ... fillin' it to the brim with tube steaks!!

In case you're wondering about Kessel's fascination with hot dogs ... there was a rumor he used to eat a wiener a day in Toronto before he was traded from the Maple Leafs.

But the myth apparently wasn't true ... and to be frank, it looks like Kessel got the sweet end of the deal, 'cause he's a freakin' 2-time Stanley Cup champ.

EXCLUSIVE

Abby Lee Miller went from dining at one of L.A.'s finest restaurants to $0.25 cent Ramen noodle packages overnight, but the good news ... she won't go without SPAM or du rags.

We got a copy of the commissary stocklist at FCC Victorville, where Abby just started her 366-day sentence for fraud. As you might guess ... there aren't a whole lotta healthy food options on it, but it's certainly affordable.

Hot & spicy pork skin chips -- $0.80 
Cookies and cream ice cream -- $2.10
SPAM -- $1.30
Canned albacore tuna -- $1.80
Cola -- $3.45
Mirror -- $2.20
Lotion -- $10.25
Ear wax removal -- $5.20
Afro pik -- $.45
Dominos -- $5.50
Acne cream -- $1.30
Mustache scissors -- $6.35
Du rag -- $2.35
Racquet balls -- $5.40

The most expensive item on the list -- an MP3 player that goes for $69.20.

Abby needs to think it through ... all sales are final once an inmate leaves the commissary.

Wrigley Sues Stop Using Our Gum To Sell E-Cigs!!!

7/16/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Wrigley is suing a Chicago e-cigarette company for using its Juicy Fruit and Doublemint gums to double smokers' pleasure. 

In their lawsuit, Wrigley says Chi-Town Vapors has been selling vape juices that copy the packaging of its 100+ year-old gum.

Wrigley says it contacted Chi-Town Vapors in July 2014, telling the company to stop selling the products and Vapors backed off, but only for a few months. Wrigley says the company then resumed its operation in November 2015, copying the gum's green double arrow design on the packaging but abbreviating the e-liquid's name to Dbl Mint.

Wrigley sent another cease and desist letter it went ignored. Then Chi-Town Vapors began selling a Joosy Fruit e-liquid flavor.

Wrigley wants Chi-Town Vapors to stop all sales of the e-liquid products and to collect any profits it's made off them.

We reached out to Chi-Town Vapors ... so far no word back.

Charlie Sheen Living That Healthy Vegan Life!!!

7/14/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Charlie Sheen has kicked meat ... and lots of other foods -- 'cause he's now living the vegan life. 

Sources close to the actor tell TMZ Charlie's about 2 weeks into his new vegan diet, which is just the latest installment of what he says is a holistic lifestyle he's embraced with gf Julia Stambler.

We're told Charlie's been getting up early to work out -- yoga and swimming are his go-to -- and he's been scarfing down foods like rice, garden burgers and even stuff like coconut water coffee. Charlie's even on vitamin drips for extra nutrients. 

Per our sources, Charlie mostly stays away from booze and seems committed to the new health kick. As we reported ... he's on an HIV drug trial, and claims he's been off hard drugs for a year.

Looks like Charlie's turned a new, organic leaf.

Shaq Gunning to Own 100 Krispy Kreme Shops

7/13/2017 11:14 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Shaquille O'Neal is making a run to become the Krispy Kreme King -- telling TMZ Sports he's working on a plan to own 100 DONUT SHOPS ... but there's a twist. 

The NBA legend only owns 1 location at the moment -- a store in ATL -- but apparently, he's had such good fortune with it that he wants to expand his donut empire in a big way. And he's got the resources to do it. 

Shaq famously missed a golden opportunity to be an early investor in Starbucks because he wasn't convinced black people drink coffee. He was wrong.

He won't be wrong again. 

Christina Milian & Karrueche Tran Hot Chicks Eating Burgers in Bikinis ... Better Late Than Never

7/12/2017 7:30 AM PDT

Christina Milian and Karrueche Tran are a little late to get on the "hot babes eating burgers" train ... but that doesn't mean we don't appreciate the effort.

Christina and Karrueche got their bikinis on and hit the beach Tuesday in Miami, where at first they got all wet ... and then dried off and chowed down on some cow.

Their burger bikini fest wasn't for any type of Carl's Jr. commercial -- in fact, the company ditched that whole concept earlier this year ... sad as it may be.

Still ... it's good to see an homage here to the good ol' days -- intended or not.

Don't bother them, they're eating.

EXCLUSIVE

Abby Lee Miller's just hours from starting her prison stint and we know what she'll be grubbing on this week ... on the inside.

The "Dance Moms" star will be an inmate at the FCI Victorville prison in California starting Wednesday, and if she's there in time for breakfast she'll get fruit, hot grits, whole wheat bread with jelly and skim milk ... according to the national menu for women's federal prisons.

For lunch, it'll be burgers -- with a choice of fries or a baked potato -- and fruit. When dinner time rolls around she'll chow on a deli sandwich or hummus wrap, along with bean soup and potato salad.

And the weekend's looking up for Abby -- sloppy joes for lunch on Saturday and chicken tacos at night!

It ain't Craig's, but it'll have to do for the next year and a day.

Kim Kardashian Shoots Down Coke Rumor C'mon Guys, It's Just Sugar!

7/11/2017 11:14 AM PDT

This blows for Kim Kardashian ... she's had to jump on social media to deny a drug rumor based on a video she herself posted.

Kim made a video for her Instagram, and some of her followers noticed two nearly perfect white lines on the counter behind her. One follower flat-out accused her of being caught with cocaine.

Kim tried to put out the fire Tuesday morning, saying ... "That's sugar from our candy mess from dylan's candy shop."

The candy thing checks out. She's in NYC, and Sunday she took North shopping for sweets.

As for the lines? Pixy Stix powder? C'mon ... we were all kids once, right?
