Kobe Bryant Vacation Dad Bod Jacked & Hairless (Update)

8/1/2017 6:34 AM PDT

2:36 PM PT -- Kobe has ... (ahem) ... weighed in on the pics -- saying, "Objects on camera may appear larger than they do in the mirror haha."

He added, "ok...ok...ok. Gimme 30 days #challengeaccepted #mambathick #mambabeast."

Kobe Bryant's chest is just like his jumper ... SMOOTH!

The Mamba ditched the shirt for a relaxing poolside session in Portofino, Italy while on vacation with his family -- but just like the rest of us, he couldn't muster up the strength to put his phone away. 

Italy is like a second home for Kobe -- he grew up there while his father played pro ball in Calabria and speaks fluent Italian.

Portofino is poppin' right now for rich people -- Kris Jenner hit up the vacation spot last month. Same with Tiffany Trump. And Heidi Klum was there last week!

Maybe they all use the same waxer?

Step aside, Santa Claus ... President Trump's vowing to single-handedly save Christmas.

POTUS addressed the Boy Scouts of America Monday at their national convention in West Virginia and got 'em all pumped up for the holiday season. Yes, it's July.

Still, the Prez offered reassurance that come December, the Scouts -- and presumably the rest of us -- can start saying "Merry Christmas" again.

Translation: bah humbug to political correctness ... I'm bringing back real yuletide cheer!

Scouts ate it up, and 45 looked pretty happy with his declaration.

Krystal added, "Keep us in your prayers. Hug your babies and spouses tight. DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE."

Ben Affleck One Thing's for Sure ... I'm Not Blue!!!

7/5/2017 6:54 AM PDT

Ben Affleck did his best to blend in with the crowd during a 4th of July parade, but it didn't work ... at all.

Ben walked with his two of his kids, Sam and Seraphina, in the Pacific Palisades parade ... looks like he didn't get the blue shirt memo.

Ben's ex, Jennifer Garner, was there watching from the sideline with daughter Violet. The parade has been a family tradition for years and looks like it's gonna stay that way. 

It's been 2 years since the two split but they've been doing the co-parenting thing, recently taking a family trip to the Bahamas. 

Jen Selter From Cheek to Shining Cheek ... Happy 4th!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Jen Selter is a true patriot when it comes to 4th of July -- just check out her red, white and blue thong and bikini ... and don't forget her ass.

The famous fitness model hit the beach for the holiday weekend, and even under gloomy skies ... she still sizzled next to the ol' American flag. A banging bod will do that sometimes.

Looks like Jen even brought her pup along for some of the beach fun. But who are we kidding ... you probably didn't even notice it was there.

Chris Christie Slams Reporter for Asking 'TMZ Stuff' Over Sunbathing Scandal

7/3/2017 8:19 AM PDT

Chris Christie went ham Sunday at a news conference when a reporter dared to ask him if he got a tan while sitting on a beach the NJ Governor closed down, firing back, "We're talking about the closure of government and you're talking about your TMZ stuff."

Christie's taking more heat than he got from his beach outing, captured by The Star-Ledger of New Jersey. Christie had closed the beach in the wake of a government shutdown in his state over failure to pass a budget.

The most hilarious part ... after Christie left the beach over the weekend, he was asked if he had gotten any sun and said, "I didn't get any sun today."  Then photos surfaced and his spokesperson gyrated ... "He did not get any sun. He had a baseball hat on."

Christie says he had always planned to go to the beach with his family ... a beach near his home.  

Rev. Al Sharpton If Trump Can Tweet, I Can Selfie ... It's My Nat'l Holiday Right!

EXCLUSIVE

In case you haven't noticed, Al Sharpton's been taking a lot of selfies lately ... and it might be because of Donald Trump.

We got the the civil rights leader Wednesday in NYC, and asked what a lot of people have been wondering about him lately -- what up with the selfie game, Al???

He broke it down for us, and the Prez is only part of it. The other part is about that gym life.

As the Rev says ... back up, haters.

Blac Chyna & Rob K. Back with a Bang

6/20/2017 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are back on again ... or at the very least getting it on again.

Rob showed up at Chyna's doorstep last week and hasn't left.  

We showed you how they spent Father's Day ... at Disneyland with 7-month-old Dream. As we said, it didn't make a whole lot of sense for them to take an infant to a theme park she can't appreciate, so it seems liked it was more for them than the kid.

Now we've found out Rob's been there every day and every night ... going on a week. They've been socializing with friends and family with BBQ's and a pool party, and they've taken hikes together.

Chyna dropped a ton of cash on gifts for Father's Day, including a Louis Vuitton bag, a customized Dodgers hat, sneakers and white and blue roses emblazoned with an "R."

We're told this has nothing to do with a TV show or business ... they're back into each other, at least for now.

Remember Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna had a kid together? We almost forgot too ... until we saw they'd all resurfaced at Disneyland for Father's Day.

Rob and BC worked out their differences to come together Sunday with their 7-month-old daughter, Dream, for a day at the Happiest Place on Earth.

Eyewitnesses spotted them getting on and off It's a Small World -- with Chyna and Dream both rockin' Mouse ears ... and Rob opting for his go-to outfit, of course.

As we reported ... Rob and Chyna have had some bumps in the road ever since Dream was born back in November. And yet, time and time again they reunite for sweet moments like this

From the looks of their stroller couple action, you'd never guess anything was amiss. Happy Dad Day, Rob!

Lonzo Ball to LaVar: Ignore the Haters ... I Love You

Breaking News

Lonzo Ball just published an open and emotional Father's Day letter to his dad -- thanking him for everything in his life, advising him to ignore the critics and telling him that he loves him. 

The entire letter -- addressed to LaVar Ball -- appeared on "The Players' Tribune" and is titled, "To the Loudest Guy in the Gym."

"One of the things I admire most about you is that you don’t really care what other people think. People can have whatever opinions they want about who you are as a person, but they’ll never have all the facts. They’ll never know you like I do."

Lonzo reflects on impactful family moments including workouts, road trips, basketball games and family breakfasts.

Lonzo says he knows he wouldn't be where he is in life without LaVar -- and brags about his 4.0 high school GPA, his basketball talent and his quiet confidence.

He also mentions repaying LaVar with a car or two once he signs his NBA contract.

He concludes, "Happy Father’s Day, Dad. Love you."
