Let us be the first to wish you a very happy National Meatball Day (we can't believe it's been a whole year either) -- and to keep the festivities rollin' we've compiled some pics of the hottest stars on a Buca di Beppo binge!
Have a ball!
Shuts Down Aspen Airport
Cool Your Jets, Richie Rich
2/15/2014 8:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Michelle Obama and the extremely rich collided in the air Friday ... when the Aspen Airport apparently shut down for an hour to facilitate a fun-filled ski weekend for Michelle and her kids.
The First Lady flew in late yesterday to the ridiculously in-your-face show of wealth on the tarmac. According to the New York Post, the airport was shut down for security reasons and some private jet setters were just PISSED.
It's one of the most congested weekends of the year at the Aspen Airport ... several hundred jets descend on the ski city for the long President's Day weekend.
And speaking of presidents ... the current one was not there. He went to Cali to deal with the drought.
It's kinda funny if some of the whiners are people who support Obama. Like the old saying goes, "Liberalism ends where inconvenience begins."
Bruce, Khloe & Kylie
Lonely Hearts Club Band

The singles band together for Valentine's Day -- Kylie and Khloe Kardashian lunched with Bruce Jenner near the family home in Calabasas.
Gotta say ... Bruce looks great -- better than he has in a long time.
The 2 sisters showed unity as they left the restaurant.
As you clearly know ... Bruce is separated from Kris ... and Khloe has filed for divorce from Lamar Odom.
As for Kylie ... she's 16 and single.
Ali, I Love You
But I'm Bringing You Down

Lindsay Lohan spent Valentines day around the love of her life ... alcohol ... and her sister Ali Lohan.
Lilo went bar hopping with Ali Friday night in New York's East Village and both appeared to be date-free. Lindsay and Ali don't look drunk in the photos ... but the night was still young.
At least New York has plenty of cabs.
Valentine's Date with Vanna ...

Suck On You
Is That a Hickey On Your Neck?
2/14/2014 4:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Love sucks -- at least for supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio, who stepped out in L.A. Thursday with what appears to be a GIANT HICKEY on her neck.
Alessandra was with her millionaire businessman fiance Jamie Mazur at the time, so it makes sense. Especially since today is Valentine's Day (sorry for the reminder).
Of course, the "hickey" could always be a curling iron burn ... but let's be real: it's never a curling iron burn.

Miley Cyrus Lawsuit
Bogus Agent Screwed Us Out Of $125K
1/19/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
If you're disappointed Miley Cyrus didn't show at the Miami South Beach Outdoor Festival on New Year's Day .... you're not alone, because the promoters of that event have filed a lawsuit claiming one of Miley's people took a huge amount of money but never delivered the singer.
A Florida concert promotion company says it sent $125K to a woman claiming to be Miley's booking agent -- a deposit to secure Miley for the shindig. The money was wired to a bank account while the deal was being finalized.
The lawsuit claims the booking agent cleaned out the bank account and on New Year's Day ... no Miley.
The promoters seem to believe they really were dealing with Miley's agent. We spoke with the woman, who says she does NOT work for Miley but was acting as an intermediary. She claims she forwarded the money to Miley's real agents.
Miley's people tell TMZ Miley has no involvement in this matter -- and tells us the woman has no connection to her actual booking agent.
Dina Lohan's DWI Case
SHOCKED At Lawyer's Sobriety!
1/7/2014 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Dina Lohan seemed authentically shocked that her lawyer spent New Year's Eve sober as a judge ... and speaking of which ...
Watch the video (1 minute in) ... kinda hysterical -- it seems Dina just can't believe her lawyer didn't hit the bottle. As for her ... she says she stayed home.
Now staying home could still mean she boozed it up, but inside court Dina told the judge in her DWI case she's stone cold sober and is half way through her 12-step program, consistently testing negative for drugs and alcohol.
So Dina's back in court in March, when presumably she'll have completed all 12 steps and the DWI case will be resolved.
Let Them Eat Rabbit Food!
1/5/2014 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Katy Perry made a slew of backstage demands for her New Year's Eve concert in Vegas ... crazier than Mary J. Blige's proviso requiring a new toilet seat for each venue.
TMZ got hold of the deal Katy cut with Caesar's Palace ... and her demands for backstage catering read like a farmer's market shopping list.
-fresh veggies AT ALL TIMES -- including spinach/broccoli/celery/beets/carrots/kale, etc.
-two large baskets of fruit -- one must be tropical.
-dinner must include a vegetarian option ... plus quinoa or couscous.
-ALL meals must be low-fat and health conscious and cannot contain MSG.
Katy's dressing room requirements are even more specific:
-fresh organic grown fruit (including SLICED pineapple, mango, kiwis, etc)
-fresh cut crudites (cucumber, broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, snap peas & celery ... plus ranch dip)
-whole grain tortilla chips
-large bowl hummus
-fresh made guacamole
Katy also likes fermented grapes -- 2 bottles of Pinot Grigio and 1 Argentine Malbec.
Someone needs to tell her ... wine is a gateway to the path of evil ... lined with Cheetos and pizza.
Rings In the New Year
1/1/2014 8:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Tori Spelling spent the last day of 2013 re-setting her wedding ring ... back on her finger.
Tori has been out sans ring ... since reports surfaced that hubby Dean McDermott cheated on her with a woman in Canada ... but she clearly decided to send a different message during a New Year's Eve burger run.
Tori has said nothing about the allegations. Tori posted video XMAS morning of her and the kids opening presents ... but Dean was nowhere in sight.
12:25 PM PT -- A short time ago, Tori tweeted a photo of her family -- including Dean -- wishing fans a happy New Year.
'Duck Dynasty' Star Willie Robertson
Refuses To Fire On A&E
1/1/2014 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Duck Dynasty" star Willie Robertson rang in the New Year with a VERY interesting and probably insincere statement -- "We all learned a lot."
Willie appeared on FOX News Channel and on the surface made nice with A&E ... not gloating that the network folded like a cheap suit and brought back Phil Robertson after he made those anti-gay comments.
But here's the deal ... the family won outright. They threatened to all leave the show if Phil wasn't reinstated and they got what they wanted and no one has apologized for the comments.
So we gotta ask ...
Cooper, Tyler, Hagar, Sambora
Best Concert Of 2014
... So Far
1/1/2014 6:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It sure beat watching Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin hijack New Year's Eve in Times Square .. Alice Cooper, Steven Tyler, Sammy Hagar, Richie Sambora, the Doobie Brothers and
Weird Al Yankovic ... all on stage together in Maui.
The menagerie of rockers appeared on stage together at the Wailea Marriott Hotel ... where guests
forked over 500 bucks apiece to support Cooper's pet charity, the Maui Food Bank.
Sambora was a late addition to the group. He happened to be in Hawaii ... vacationing with his daughter.
Best thing in Hawaii since Don Ho (Google him).
