Cat Cora Betrayed By Wife I Do the Divorcing Around Here

4/12/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

041116-cat-jennifer-cora-getty'Iron Chef' star Cat Cora was stabbed in the back by her estranged wife, who intentionally ignored PR 101 -- let the celebrity file for divorce against the nobody.  

According to documents filed in the divorce between Cat and Jennifer Cora, Cat's lawyer fired off an angry letter to Jennifer's mouthpiece, claiming they had a deal -- Cat would file the divorce petition for "public relations" reasons. Translation ... make it clear Cat was leaving Jennifer. 

According to the letter, when Cat was flying somewhere, Jennifer backstabbed her and had her lawyer file for divorce. Cat's lawyer says Jennifer clearly did this out of spite. 

The letter, written last October right after the petition was filed, was just included in the court file but makes it clear how nasty this divorce got.  

Cat's lawyer also accused Jennifer of trash-talking Cat to their kids' school and to mutual friends.

It hasn't gotten better ... Cat wants Jennifer to submit to a vocational analysis ... in other words, she needs to get a job.

Ex-NFL star Takeo Spikes says he had a racket at Augusta National when he was a kid -- slingin' the white stuff to rich people ... in the way of egg sandwiches. 

It's actually a pretty interesting story ... Spikes explains, "You know when you a kid and you don't have nothing, you go where the money is at."

And his hustle ... selling egg sammys. 

Now, Spikes is one of those rich guys he used to sell to ... and has become a golfer himself. In fact, he calls out a huge NBA star and vows to whoop his ass on the links. 

Check out the clip.

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Our Engagement Is Poppin'!!

4/6/2016 4:57 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna found a fringe benefit to getting engaged -- cheat day with the ice cream man! 

Rob and Chyna turned their Range Rover around when they saw an ice cream truck parked on the side of the road. You'll recall they also made an In N' Out run last month to celebrate Rob's birthday.

As cheat days go, this ain't so bad -- they scored two bomb pops at about 40 calories each -- but still ... there's a pattern here.

The day after the wedding should be epic!


Dale Earnhardt Jr. Posts Gross Sandwich ... Internet Freaks Out

4/5/2016 10:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805_DALE_EARNHART_JR_SANDWICH_INSTAGRAMNASCAR star Dale Earnhardt Jr. just revealed to the world he happily eats mayonnaise and banana sandwiches ... and the world responded with appropriate disgust and shock.

Dale took to his Twitter account moments ago and posted a picture of the half-made mayo and 'nana monstrosity, with the caption "Making my favorite sandwich. I swear it's delicious. @Hellmanns."

Obviously no one believed him ... and the reaction in the Twittosphere was swift with Dale getting clowned mercilessly in his comments section. Here are some of the best.

"@DaleJr is this a cry for help?"

”@DaleJrIs this some sort of sick joke?"

"@DaleJr Perhaps South Carolina or Tennessee will welcome you and your shenanigans with open arms but that will not be tolerated here."

Different strokes for different folks we guess ... some strokes are revolting though.

Kim Kardashian Love for Sean Payton ... No Bush? No Problem.

3/31/2016 10:17 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0331-kardashian-payton-getty-01There were tons of big stars at Craig's Thursday night -- Viola Davis, Paul Haggis, Nick Jonas -- but Kim Kardashian only stopped to talk to one person ... Saints head coach Sean Payton

A TMZ staffer inside the restaurant saw the whole thing unfold ... Kim walked into the joint with her good friend Lil' Kim in tow -- "The entire restaurant stopped to look at them. People were in awe."

Kim noticed Payton sitting with 4 other dudes at a table in the middle of the restaurant -- and walked right past other stars (including Haggis) to say what up! 

Payton got out of his seat and gave Kim a huge hug -- and congratulated her for a recent accomplishment. She was very appreciative. 

Of course, the two go wayyy back ... they first met around 2007 when Kim was dating Reggie Bush who played for Payton's Saints. 

Nearly 10 years later ... and with Bush out of the picture for both parties ... they clearly still like each other. Wonder if she's still a Saints fan? 

Snoop Dogg I'll Save Roscoe's Chicken N Waffles From Bankruptcy

3/30/2016 6:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Snoop Dogg's about to become way more than just a music legend ... if he's serious about saving L.A.'s iconic restaurant, Roscoe's Chicken N Waffles.

We got Snoop and Warren G outside Lure Nightclub Tuesday night and brought up the biggest news in Hollywood -- that the parent company of Roscoe's just filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

Snoop hadn't heard, and was floored -- you gotta see his reaction -- but he immediately started thinking about how to save the hot spot ... where he's a regular, mind you.

Check out his plan -- we're guessing Roscoe's fans won't care about a name change ... if the chicken's still hot!

Red Bull Sued Forget Wings ... Your Drink Killed My Son!!

3/30/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

033016-redbull-gettyRed Bull energy drink got one guy so hyped up on caffeine it destroyed his heart, and his family says the company knew about the medical risk ... but did nothing to warn consumers. 

Ann Lemley is suing the energy drink giant over her 44-year-old son William's 2014 death. In the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, she says William died after ingesting "toxic amounts of caffeine and other chemicals" in Red Bull. 

Lemley points out in the suit ... multiple studies have been done about the negative health consequences of the popular beverage. She claims Red Bull fails to alert its customers to risks associated with the drink ... including hypertension and cardiovascular conditions. 

Her son ultimately died of a string of heart ailments. 

Lemley's suing for more than $35 million in damages. We've reached out to Red Bull, but have not heard back. 

update_graphic_red_bar7:30 A.M. PST -- A rep for the company tells TMZ, "Over 60 billion cans of Red Bull Energy Drink have been consumed since it first went on sale in 1987 and it is available in over 165 countries because health authorities around the world have concluded that it is safe to consume.

The European Food Safety Authority has recently again confirmed the safety of energy drinks. So, there is no justification to treat energy drinks differently than coffee, tea or other caffeine containing soft drinks. One 250 ml (8.4 fl oz) can of Red Bull Energy Drink contains about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee (80 mg)."

They're all in luck ... a rep for the company had no comment on the bankruptcy, but did stress that people should keep going to their restaurants.  


Jared Fogle Back in the Food Biz

3/23/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0322-jared-fogle-fa-tmz-getty-01Jared Fogle -- who was beaten by a prison inmate -- has learned revenge is best served cold ... and is doing just that at the prison cafeteria. 

We've learned the former Subway pitchman was assigned cafeteria duties at Federal Correctional Institution Englewood. His principal duty was serving sandwiches at the end of the line. Our sources say prison officials were privately giggling over the irony.  

The problem ... inmates felt Fogle was getting celebrity treatment with a cushy job, and especially after he was beaten up in January, so officials decided to move him from the inmate cafeteria. 

Fogle's fellow inmates can't be happy about this ... he got what you might call a promotion. Now he's serving food at the correctional officers' cafeteria, which has higher-end food, including steaks.

It's unclear if Fogle gets to eat the food he now serves ... better than a footlong, right?

Starbucks In a Latte Trouble ... You're Shorting Our Coffee!!

3/17/2016 4:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317-starbucks-fa-tmz-getty-02Two Cali java fanatics have a bean to grind with Starbucks for refusing to fill their cups to the rim ... according to a new suit.

The duo says every time they order a tall, grande or venti sized latte ... it's grossly underfilled. They point out the menu promises 12, 16 and 20 ounces -- but based on their research Starbucks underfills those cups by about 25% EVERY time. 

In the class action suit, they admit occasionally the milk foam on top gets to the rim, but they add ... "In the food science community, as well as in the weights and measures community, foam is not measured on a volumetric basis."

Translation: Foam doesn't count! 

Nor do they think this is an accident ... they paint CEO Howard Schultz as the villain for cutting costs by reducing the amount of milk in each latte.

They're seeking damages for Starbucks latte drinkers all across the country.
