Knicks to Ex Carnegie Deli Wife We Got Beef ... $97k Worth of Tix!

11/28/2016 12:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1128-KNICKS-CARNEGIE-GETTY-TMZ-2BA New York Knicks superfan, who's also linked to another NYC landmark, is stiffing the team on her super expensive courtside seats ... according to Madison Square Garden honchos.

MSG, which owns the Knicks, just sued Terry Klein, wife of the former co-owner of the legendary Carnegie Deli, for 10 Knicks season tickets she enjoyed using -- and allegedly reselling -- during the 2015-16 NBA season. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ Sports, Terry either used or resold more than 90 percent of the tickets she was given.

There were 44 home games (pre and regular season) ... so we're talking 440 tickets! MSG says the total cost for those primo seats is $101,225 -- but Terry had a credit from the previous season ... so, they say she owes $97,865.

MSG points out Terry and her husband, Fred Klein, have been loyal Knicks fans "for decades" ... so it's "reluctantly" filing the lawsuit. MSG says it's only suing because Terry has agreed she owes the dough, but continually refuses to pay.

No doubt, Terry deserves something for remaining a Knicks fan -- it's been 43 years since their last championship -- but $97k seems steep.

We reached out to the Kleins ... so far no word back.

Ben's Chili Bowl Beware, Donald Trump They Want to Stuff You With Chili Cheese Fries!!!

11/28/2016 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump gained a few lbs on the campaign trail, and a famous landmark in D.C. may exacerbate the problem in a big way. 

Virginia Ali, the owner of Ben's Chili Bowl, is dead set on carrying on the tradition of stuffing the faces of presidents with greasy delectabilities. She's got her sights set on a plate of chili cheese fries and the chili half-smoke, with Donald's name on it.

She also thinks a current customer -- who's about to lose his job -- will become more of a regular. 

Fogle, Guidice and Dassey Inmates Chow Down on Thanksgiving Grub

11/24/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1123-dassey-fogle-suge-tmz-getty-2Jared Fogle, Brendan Dassey and a bunch of other famous prisoners may have given up many of their inalienable rights, but not the right to get the bird on Turkey Day.

We surveyed the landscape, and here's what the joints are offering for Thanksgiving dinner:

Brendan Dassey (Wisconsin)
The "Making a Murderer" star gets roasted turkey with giblet gravy, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, biscuits, pumpkin pie with crust on top, veggie salad and chocolate milk.

Suge Knight (Los Angeles)
Suge's meal is similar to Dassey's, but he gets a dinner roll instead of a biscuit and a pumpkin muffin instead of pie ... and milk without the chocolate.

Kevin Gates (Florida)
The rapper also gets a traditional meal, but add corn and a fruit turnover to the spread. Sorry, no milk. Gates' prison also serves a vegetarian option of rice, beans and fruit.

Joe Giudice & Apollo Nida (New Jersey)
The 'Real Housewives' hubbies will chow down on a traditional meal, cafeteria-style, that includes stuffing and dessert.

Jared Fogle (Colorado)
The ex-Subway spokesman now eats fresh at the Federal Correctional Institution in Englewood, and he gets turkey and ham or, alternatively, eggplant/baked tofu. Colorado seems to have the best menu ... it includes cornbread dressing, corn and sweet potato casserole.

Chili's eventually apologized -- but now, we've learned Cuban heard about the story and wanted to personally honor the vet ... so the Mavs owner made the following offer: 

-- 2 season tickets to the Dallas Mavs games for the rest of the season

-- 10 bonus tickets to Wednesday night's game so Walker can bring 10 more vets! 

-- 10 bonus tickets to most Mavs home games to give out to other vets and people in need

-- Cuban agreed to donate money to Ernest's campaign to feed 1 million soldiers

We spoke to Walker who says he's pumped about the offer and expressed his gratitude to Cuban when they talked on the phone earlier Wednesday.

Racist Pigs at Famous BBQ Joint Hey Waitress ... Go Back to Mexico!!

11/20/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1118-racist-tip-dallas-bbq-with-swipe-tmz-4A couple of racist customers got into the 2016 political spirit by humiliating their Hispanic waitress.

The waitress is an older woman, originally from Mexico, who's been with Dallas BBQ in NYC for 25 years. She says she served a couple who spoke loudly and disparagingly about immigrants. 

Things got nasty, we're told, when employees realized the couple planned to dine and dash.

The couple started cursing on their way out, and when the waitress checked the credit card receipt she discovered her "tip" ... an invite to go back to Mexico.

The owner vows to build a metaphorical wall if they try to return. 

Anthony Bourdain Bites Back at Dog Meat Heckler with Perfect Comeback

11/19/2016 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anthony Bourdain shut down a protester accusing him of eating dog meat in the most Bourdain way possible.

Anthony was in the middle of his live show, "The Hunger," earlier this week in San Francisco when the woman charged the stage. AB was just trying to do a little promotion for his new book, 'Appetites' ... co-authored with Laurie Woolever -- but the protester had other plans.

For some reason she was convinced he enjoys a fine cut of Fido, but the audience had Bourdain's back -- not that he needed it ... his puppy-related rebuttal is hysterical.

We got Anthony the next day and he reiterated -- he's never had a bite of man's best friend. As for the puppy line ... obviously a joke too. Hecklers beware!

11/18/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1117-mick-jagger-getty-3Mick Jagger loosens the ol' belt when he's eating out, and doesn't skimp on gratuities ... as the staff at a high-end Chinese joint quickly learned.

Eyewitnesses at Philippe Chow in NYC tell TMZ Mick popped in earlier this week for a quick meal with a crew of 5, plus another car full of security. Mick and his buddies ordered FAT, with starter dishes like lettuce wraps, tuna tartare, chicken satays and green prawns.

Then the real food came ... with an order of Mr. Cheng's Noodles, Peking duck and the restaurant's own Baked Alaska cake for dessert.

We're told Mick and co. were very polite and quick, scarfing down their meal. The craziest part -- Mick left a tip bigger than the $478 bill ... at $500.

"If you try sometimes, you get what you need" ... said the lucky waiter.

Krispy Kreme Sued You Got Berry Dishonest Donuts And Where's the Maple?

11/14/2016 12:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1111-krispy-kreme-donut-imitation-filling-lawsuit-fun-art-TMZ-01Krispy Kreme's maple and berry filled donuts are actually full of crap, according to a new class action lawsuit. 

Jason Saidian just filed the suit after getting an order of Glazed Raspberry Filled, Chocolate Iced Raspberry Filled, Maple Iced Glazed and Glazed Blueberry Cake donuts. Sounds like a party, what could go wrong?

In the docs, Saidian says his order was packed full of imitation ingredients, like "blueberry gumbits." He's pissed because he thinks KK falsely advertised, and knows how to make the real deal -- the Glazed Lemon Filled and Glazed Strawberry Filled have 100% real fruit.

Saidian's looking for $5 million on behalf of all Krispy Kreme faithful who've had a berry filled, maple flavored lie pulled over their eyes.
