Mariah Carey

I'm Directing A XMAS Movie ...

And My Favorite 'Mean Girl' Is In It

10/7/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1006-mariah-carey-set-chair-TMZ-01Mariah Carey is directing a Hallmark movie for the holidays starring her favorite character, Gretchen Weiners from "Mean Girls."

Our Mariah people say she started working on "A Christmas Melody" Tuesday and made herself right at home in the director's chair. We're told Mariah had only one request, her favorite actress from her favorite movie star in the flick. Let's be serious ... she had more than one request.

Lacey Chabert, who played Gretchen Weiners in "Mean Girls" was more than happy to take the lead.  

Mariah won't appear in the movie but we're told her music is featured throughout. It's unclear if MiMi tapped into directing legend Brett Ratner for advice. 

Kylie Jenner

I'll Make A Better Mermaid Than Kim

9/26/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-kylie-kim-mermaids-TMZ-GETTY-composite-03Kylie Jenner is outdoing big sister Kim again ... this time with her Halloween costume.

Kylie stopped by Trashy Lingerie in LA this week -- the same place Caitlyn Jenner got her Vanity Fair corset -- to get the ball rolling on a sexy mermaid costume. 

Sound familiar?

0925-SUB-kylie-kim-mermaids-getty-GETTY-composite-01Kim dressed up as a mermaid back in 2012 for a NYC Halloween party. We're told Kylie's going to show way more skin. And Kylie's kostume will be festooned with beads and rhinestones.

Kim spent around $2,500 for her mermaid costume ... Kylie's going bigger and cheaper -- under $2k.

She also wants extra padding ... some things she just can't one up.


Cecil the Lion

Killer Costume

Severed Head Included

8/25/2015 9:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details


The best "so bad it's good" Halloween costume contest is over ... because now you can dress up this year as Dr. Walter Palmer ... the dentist who killed beloved lion Cecil. 

The costume retails for $59.99 and includes a severed lion's head, a smock and gloves with fake blood spatter, and some dentist tools for the front pocket. CEO Johnathon Weeks tells TMZ sale of the costume went live at midnight Tuesday and they've yet to sell a single one.

Weeks says they created the costume because they were flooded with requests. 

The company says they're doing some good  ... 15% of all proceeds will go to the African Wildlife Foundation "Justice for Cecil."

Maybe it's best to make the donation yourself and just dress up as Walter White again.


Nina Dobrev

Eternally Hot

0721_nina_dobrev_yachtNina Dobrev's post-"Vampire Diaries" life seems pretty good ... she's rocking quite the tiny bikini while chilling with a few friends on a yacht in St. Tropez.

Unemployment. It's working for her!

'Vanderpump Rules' Jax Taylor

Arrested for Felony Theft

Over Hawaiian Sunglasses

7/18/2015 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0718-jax-taylor-tmz-01Jax Taylor from "Vanderpump Rules" took a break from the beach Friday night for an extended visit to a Honolulu jail, after getting busted for allegedly stealing a very expensive pair of shades.

Law enforcement sources tell us, Jax is still in the slammer with no immediate prospect of getting out. We're told he allegedly went to a sunglasses shop and stole a pair.  He was arrested at his hotel a block away.

The glasses had to be worth more than $300 ... the minimum in Hawaii for charging someone with felony theft.

Jax has been posting pics of his vacation with GF Brittany Cartwright.

They'll be able to add another pic to the set ... the one taken by cops.


Caitlyn Jenner

Kids Spoil Her With Father’s Day Gifts

6/23/2015 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Caitlyn Jenner didn’t unwrap any ties this Father’s Day … she finally got the gifts she’s always wanted – dresses and a day spent as a woman of leisure.

As we previously reported, several of Caitlyn’s kids joined her at her Malibu pad on Sunday, and they didn't come empty-handed.

We’re told the Kardashian girls went all out gifting her with dresses, shoes and accessories for her new wardrobe. Her elder sons Brandon and Burt did yard work so that Caitlyn wouldn’t have to get her manicured hands dirty.

It’s a breaking of tradition for Caitlyn and her kids, who in years past always resorted to sports-related Father’s Day gifts or the token tie.

We're told Caitlyn felt it was the best Father's Day ever.


Caitlyn Jenner

My First

Father's Day!!!

6/21/2015 6:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621-caitlyn-jenner-fathers-day-TMZ-Instagram-03Caitlyn Jenner celebrated her first Father's Day with her children, and there's a lot more significance than you think.

Caitlyn's kids from all 3 ex-wives came together for the shindig at her Malibu house. Of course, it's the first time she's celebrated the holiday as a woman. Caitlyn has told her kids she will always be their dad.

But there's more. Caitlyn never celebrated Father's Day with all her kids. Kris organized Father's Day events, but the boys and Cassandra rarely went.   

Now that there are no wives to organize Father's Day parties, Caitlyn -- like many single dads -- is left to her own devices. We're told Sunday's festivities were initiated by Caitlyn. 

Interesting some of the Caitlyn's sons are celebrating with her daughters ... they don't really socialize together.

Whatever ... hopefully a good time was had by all.


Kendall to Caitlyn

Happy Father's Day

You're Still the Same Soul

6/21/2015 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0621-kendal-jenner-dad-bruce-caitlyn-INSTAGRAM-01Kendall Jenner just posted a pretty touching Father's Day shout out to Caitlyn, telling her she's always been the same person ... her hero.

Kendall says, "My whole life this soul was my daddy and just because your appearance is different now doesn't mean you were any less of a father to me my entire life."  

She ended by saying, "Happy Father's Day to the person who raised me, and taught me everything I know. My hero."

Out of the mouth of babes ...

Amber Rose

Hey Wiz, Here's My Father's Day Present


6/21/2015 6:58 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Amber Rose can't remove ex-hubby Wiz Khalifa from her life because they share a kid together, but she sure can remove him from her body.

Our photog got Amber leaving Dr. Tattoff Saturday in the San Fernando Valley, and the signs are pretty clear ... the good Doc did his handiwork on Wiz's face.

Amber's bandage covers the precise area where Wiz once lived large.

Now the only way Wiz can see 2-year-old Sebastian is in person.   



Chris Brown

Royalty's Celebrating Father's Day with Me!!!

6/21/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0619-chris-brown-royalty-first-fathers-day-TMZ-GETTY-COMPOSITE-fun-art-01Chris Brown is throwing a party for himself, but the guest of honor will really be his 1-year-old girl, thanks to his baby mama.

Chris was supposed to do the ol' hand off Friday ... Royalty's been with him all week. He told Nia Guzman he desperately wanted to throw a party for Father's Day, and Nia agreed to extend the visit a few extra days to accommodate him.

So here's what's in store for Royalty ... tacos, enchiladas, and other fixins all catered by rapper T-Rell's mom, a bounce house, swimming and entertainment.

Chris has invited his pals who have kids. We're told Tyga may stop by with King Cairo.

As for why Nia -- who's in a bitter custody and child support fight with Chris -- decided to bend ... we're told she doesn't want to come off like a bitter mom.

Baby steps.

Flavor Flav

Fireworks Criminal Case Fizzles

6/15/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The cosmos has finally aligned for Flavor Flav, because he’s off the hook for a fireworks show cops claimed was criminal.

Flav got busted for setting off 100 lbs. of illegal fireworks last July 4th at his Las Vegas pad.

The D.A.'s office wanted more info on the bust from Vegas cops. But time passed and the info didn't come, so prosecutors tossed the case.

It's a lucky break for the Public Enemy rapper, who’s been busted for harboring this type of ammo several times in the past.

Flav has never seemed phased by the threat of prosecution for setting off bottle rockets ... and the 4th is just around the corner.

Mariah Carey

If The Shoe Fits ...

Eat It

5/12/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0511-mariah-carey-birthday-cake-TMZ-01Mariah Carey got some real sole food for Mother’s Day this year … a massive cake in the shape of a shoe made with REAL gold.

We’re told Mariah’s manager sent the scrumptious slipper to her house as a Mother’s Day gift … and had it specially made by Kailava -- a company featured on "Cake Boss: Next Great Baker" and known for extreme edible sculptures.

Other than the mirror base that displayed the sugary shoe, everything on the cake was edible … even the gold … which is probably why it was worth a couple thousand dollars.

Even though this size 8 could fit perfectly around her foot, the best place for it is deep in her gut. Brings a whole new meaning to foot-in-mouth syndrome.
