Jimmy Carter Short, Sweet Advice for Trump ... Now Let's Talk Peanut Butter!!!

1/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jimmy Carter's got some pretty simple tips for very-soon-to-be President Donald Trump ... but it's definitely easier said than done.

We got the 39th President of the U.S. at the Reagan Airport making his way to the inauguration festivities, and along with some advice for Trump ... he extends a pretty sweet invitation to President Obama for his retirement days.

But, all of that pales in comparison to Carter's passion for peanut butter -- the former prez dishes on how to properly chow down on PB. Hint ... there's more to work with than jelly.

Future Buses in Hot Chicks ... For Homie's Bday Bash

1/20/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Future and Big Bank Black blazed their own party trail for a friend's birthday -- including a pit stop to rage with a busload of hot chicks -- but predictably ... it ended at the strip club.

The rappers were celebrating big record exec Ricardo's bday in Atlanta Wednesday night. They hit up STK steakhouse, shut it down for a private dinner, and dropped around $37k.

We're told the 3 amigos moved on to Gold Room nightclub -- open just for them -- and bussed in around 20 beautiful women to party. They spent $10k apiece in 2 1/2 hours.

Finally ... they left those hot chicks and met up with a new group at Platinum strip club, throwing down more than $15k for 30 minutes of entertainment.

So, if you're keeping track ... that's around $82k for Ricardo's birthday. Judging by the pics -- it was worth it.

Obamacare Senate Vote to Repeal Fueled by More than 100 Pizzas

1/12/2017 12:49 PM PST
Exclusive Details

0112_pizza-us-senate-EPAWhile U.S. Senators held a marathon voting session to take down Obamacare, they were more than happy to spend freely on pizza, after pizza after pizza ... and tons of wings too.

Sources inside the historic vote tell TMZ ... the Senate ordered out to We, The Pizza around 20 times throughout the night. We're told the average order was 7 pies covering the gamut -- supreme, pepperoni, sausage, veggie and just plain old cheese. They also inhaled at least 200 wings.

The delivery guys made out with much higher tips than usual. One driver even walked away with a hundo for a single delivery. We're told the Senate dropped about $5,000 for the evening's grub.

At least they were eating healthy while dismantling the Affordable Care Act. The vote moves to the House next -- so, maybe Chick-fil-A to go?

They weren't much in the mood for chitchat as they left, but Ted spilled the beans on who paid. Hint ... it's someone with a steady job.

Bo Bice 'White Boy' Incident Blown Out of Proportion ... Says Popeyes Employee

1/10/2017 1:36 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Popeyes employee who called "American Idol" runner-up Bo Bice a "white boy" ... thinks he could have handled the situation better, instead of getting her suspended.

Brooke Harpe told TMZ ... she'd love to apologize to Bice, and wishes he'd given her the chance to do so in the first place. Harpe's been benched for about a week now, and says Bo made a mountain out of a molehill. She thinks there was a much simpler, tastier way to resolve the matter.

She says Popeyes just gave her the okay to return to work starting Monday.

Bice broke down while talking about the incident last week, saying it would be considered racist if roles were reversed.

Nestle Sued There's a Wrinkle in Your Raisinets Boxes

1/4/2017 6:31 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0104-nestle-raisinets-tmz-swiped-02As if the price of movie tickets isn't bad enough ... Nestle is out screwing patrons out of Raisinets ... at least according to a new lawsuit.

Sandy Hafer, an L.A. moviegoer, claims the boxes are only 60% full, and people don't know they're paying for a bunch of air. According to the suit, Nestle misleads movie theater customers into thinking they're getting a full box when 40% is nothing but "slack-fill" -- translated, the difference between the actual capacity of the box and the amount of candy inside.

Hafer cites FDA guidelines which call slack-fills "misleading." She claims she would never have plunked down her hard-earned cash had she known she wasn't getting a proper bang for her buck.

Hafer's class action seeks compensation for every California moviegoer who got screwed out of a full-blown sugar rush off the tasty chocolate treat.

Del Taco Sued Your Food Put Me in a Real Coma

12/24/2016 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

12-14-del-taco

Del Taco's claim its food is "Un-Freshing Believable" is un-freaking believable to an Orange County man who says 2 tacos and a quesadilla put him in a coma.

The 57-year-old customer is suing over a meal he says left him vomiting and in serious pain. According to the lawsuit he was rushed to the ER the next day due to excessive puking and placed in ICU, where he "slipped into a coma" for 3 days.

In the suit, he offers no specifics about how or why he fell comatose -- but he told us his esophagus was bleeding from the vomiting. He says doctors said it would take a miracle for him to pull out of the coma, and when he did it took 6 weeks to recover.

According to the suit, he racked up more than $160k in medical bills. He's suing for at least $500k in damages.

Del Taco points out this guy filed the same suit before to no avail. He tells us he voluntarily dismissed it so he could better prepare for trial.

Regardless, Del Taco says it will vigorously fight the allegations.

Hershey's Sued There's Nothing Jolly About Empty Candy Bags!

12/23/2016 7:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1222_hershey-jolly-rancher-compositeThose delicious Jolly Rancher Hard Candies you love are being hawked in a bag full o' lies ... according to one sour customer who says his sweet purchase was mostly air.

It's gotta be bad when you sue over freakin' candy, but yeah ... a California man says he bought a 3.8 oz. box of Jolly Ranchers and was shocked to discover it was less than 50% full. He says although he didn't expect it to be "crammed full," the excess of empty space was unacceptable, and he's blaming it on the packaging.

According to the docs ... the box is designed to hide the severe lack of colorful candy on the inside, which is misleading and downright wrong.

He's not in it for the money -- he just wants his $3 back. Well, he's also putting Hershey's -- the maker of Jolly Ranchers -- on the clock. In the suit, he wants the judge to give the co. 12-18 months to sell off its deceptive packaging and roll out the good stuff.

$3 and a dream.

Mobb Deep's Prodigy Prison Cookbook Banned! Booze Recipe for Disaster

12/22/2016 4:25 PM PST

1222-prodigy-mobb-deep-tmz-instagram-01Prodigy's jailhouse cookbook is bombing with California prison officials who seem to think it's a bad idea to teach inmates how to make hooch.

The Mobb Deep rapper's "Commissary Kitchen: My Infamous Prison Cookbook" was recently banned by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Officials fired off a letter to Prodigy, explaining prison wine doesn't fly.

As they said in the letter, obtained by TMZ ... "inmate manufactured alcohol" is a major no-no.

1222-bob-deep-cookbook-letter-01Prodigy might have suspected this could be an issue. We had him on "TMZ Live" and he told us about some of his favorite recipes. He never mentioned the booze.

The only problem with this ban? Plenty of Cali inmates are already boned up on home brews ... or so we hear.
