91st Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade Fallon, Stefani, Pikachu & The Men in Blue!

11/23/2017 12:13 PM PST

The 91st annual Thanksgiving Day Parade went off without a hitch Thursday morning thanks to a near perfect, yet chilly, November day in the Big Apple ... and plenty men in blue lining the Midtown streets.

Jimmy Fallon, Gwen StefaniCommon, Patti LaBelle, Questlove were some of the celebs who got to ride the floats down 6th Avenue. 

Smokey Robinson's was the coolest ... he rode on a mini Mount Rushmore-themed float. Ice Age's Scrat, Pikachu, a Power Ranger, SpongeBob and Charlie Brown were some of the parade's best balloons that lined the route before Santa Claus shut it down as usual. 

Hard to ignore the heavy police presence. NYPD officers lined the parade route after the city experienced its deadliest terror attack since 9/11 this past Halloween. Gotta be thankful for New York's Finest.

Happy Thanksgiving!


Lady Gaga Yammin' it Up ... For Thanksgiving

11/23/2017 10:21 AM PST

Lady Gaga joined in the Thanksgiving scramble Wednesday, shopping up a storm in West Virginia.

Gaga's fam lives in West VA., so it seems she's pitching in for Thursday's feast.

The pic was shot at a Kroger supermarket and she was all over the produce section.  The hoodie may have done the trick, because we're told no one noticed her.  Seems odd with the platinum blond hair that no one connected the dots, but they didn't. 

Gaga's grandma lives in West VA, and that's where her mom is from as well. 

Weiner & El Chapo Thanksgiving Meal Comes Super Early

11/23/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Weiner and El Chapo won't have to wait long to lick their chops for Thanksgiving ... the prison meal's served at lunch time.

We did a little digging and found out Weiner and Chapo -- serving time at Federal Medical Center and Metropolitan Correctional Center -- will stuff their faces with turkey, gravy and mashed potatoes. For dessert, Weiner gets pie and Chapo gets candied sweet potatoes.

When it comes to dinner, all they get is an assorted box that includes sandwiches.

Meek Mill at State Correctional Facility in Pennsylvania gets:

-- Real turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, cranberry sauce, rolls and pumpkin pie.

Bobby Shmurda at Clinton Correctional Facility in upstate NY:

-- 6 oz turkey, mashed potatoes, peas and carrots, stuffing, gravy, and vanilla sundae.

Scott Peterson at San Quentin State Prison:

-- Turkey, ham, green salad with Italian dressing, stuffing or yams and cheesecake. To wash it down ... tea, Kool-Aid or water.

Kidd Creole at Rikers Island:

-- Roast turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, candied yams, steamed veggies and carrot cake. There's also a kosher menu and modified meals to accommodate therapeutic diets.

Kendra Wilkinson Throws 'I Picked Cotton' Party!!! What Slavery?

11/22/2017 2:16 PM PST
Exclusive Details

Kendra Wilkinson ain't just deep in the heart of Texas, she's knee-deep in controversy after reveling in the joy -- as she sees it -- of picking cotton.

Kendra knocked off an odd bucket list item Wednesday when she pulled over -- mid-road trip with her husband, Hank Baskett -- to wander into a random field and pick a cotton bulb clean.

Kendra joked she might get shot for trespassing -- a legit concern, to be honest -- but the tone deaf move came when she loudly celebrated, and posted it on social media. Perhaps a little too giddy for something so connected to slavery?

Kendra's rep tells TMZ she didn't intend to offend, and she's sorry if anyone took it the wrong way. As for anyone claiming she's racist -- the rep pointed out Hank is black.

Olivia Munn's Dog Gets a Leg Up on Airport Greeter

11/22/2017 2:06 PM PST

4:30 PM PT -- Olivia is leaping to Chance's defense and says he was merely pulling the ole "scratch me on my leg" move."Chance, nooooooo!!!"

... Is what Olivia Munn probably should have shouted as her rescue dog greeted a greeter at LAX by marking his territory and peeing on her left leg.

Munn was flying out of the airport Wednesday for Thanksgiving with Chance and her other dog, Frankie. Clearly, one pooch is more of a bad boy (but they're both good boys).

Olivia didn't seem to notice and the LAX employees didn't seem to mind ... so airport crisis averted.

The actress and her pups strolled away afterward, all smiles.

Meek Mill Prison Can't Stop Me ... I've Got Turkeys to Give Away!!!

11/21/2017 1:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Meek Mill isn't letting prison bars crush his holiday spirit when it comes to his traditional Thanksgiving turkey giveaway ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Meek tell us his family and friends plan to continue his annual "A DreamChaser's Thanksgiving" for Philly families. We're told Meek's camp will be handing out 1,000 birds Wednesday to 4 different organizations, just like they have been doing since 2013.

Undeterred by their host's 2-4 year sentence ... Meek's team will be on the move all day:

- 11 AM ET at Unity in the Community
- Noon at Bible Way Baptist Church
- 1:30 PM ET at Martin Luther King Rec Center
- 2:45 PM ET at Strawberry Mansion Learning Center

Meek ain't free, but his turkeys are. Happy Thanksgiving!

Kurtis Blow Christmas Needs More Hip-Hop Ho, Ho, Hos!!!

11/21/2017 10:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kurtis Blow isn't just a rap pioneer ... he's a Christmas rap pioneer, but this holiday season he's inviting all of hip-hop to join him by the yuletide fire.

We got the NYC legend Tuesday at Reagan National in D.C. and asked why he thought hip-hop Christmas songs don't get as much play as more conventional choices, like Mariah Carey's "All I Want for Christmas is You."

To Kurtis the answer seems to be market share. As in, more is more, and now is the time for rappers to get in the spirit. After all, it pays!

Just ask Run-DMC about their royalties on "Christmas in Hollis" or Kurtis himself, whose "Christmas Rappin'" has been a thing for 38 years now!

With that said, we gotta ask ...

Kylie Jenner Early Christmas At Her L.A. Pop-Up Shop

11/21/2017 8:47 AM PST

No, that's not a Black Friday mob at Walmart -- it's the opening of the Kylie Cosmetics pop-up shop in L.A. and, so far at least, no one's been injured fighting over a lip kit.

Still, super eager shoppers waited their turn inside the Topshop at The Grove, when the doors swung open Monday for Kylie's gear.

It's one of 7 cosmetics pop-ups Kylie's opening across the US for the holiday shopping season. Others opened in Chicago, Vegas, Atlanta, Miami, Houston and New York.

Kylie wasn't there for obvious reasons, but members of her glam squad were giving makeup tutorials. Based on the crowds ... we suspect Kylie will be able to afford gifts this holiday season. 

Melania & Barron Trump O Christmas Tree ... O Damn, That's a Big Christmas Tree!

11/20/2017 3:57 PM PST

The Trumps are going full Griswold for the holidays, 'cause they just got a Christmas tree even Chevy Chase might consider too big. Might.

Melania and Barron Trump stood by Monday as the White House holiday tree was delivered by horse-drawn carriage. We're told it comes in at a whopping 19.5 feet in length. 

The tree is a Wisconsin-grown Balsam fir provided by the Chapman family of Silent Night Evergreens. They won a national contest for the honor this year. 

It's tradition for the First Lady to decorate the tree based on a theme of her choosing ... and Melania seems to be giving her first one some serious thought.

No pressure!  

Salt-N-Pepa Let's Talk About Spicy Christmas With Taraji P. Henson!!!

11/20/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Salt-N-Pepa are shaking things up for the holidays and their careers by landing a sweet acting gig opposite Taraji P. Henson.

The ladies are playing Sugar N Spice in a skit for Taraji's "White Hot Holidays" TV special. The script has them sharing the camera with Taraji, as Mrs. Claus -- and Method Man as the tooth fairy!

Fergie, Ying Yang Twins, Ciara and Faith Evans are also on the special, but only to rap and sing.

We're told S-N-P took the gig -- which taped last weekend -- to sharpen their acting skills, 'cause they plan to do a lot more of it. In fact, they'll bump into Taraji again when they guest star next season on "Empire."

Ultimately, the duo's plan is to be recognized as much as Cheryl James and Sandra Denton, as Salt-N-Pepa. Think Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson ... just prettier, with less muscle.

Macy's Thanksgiving Parade 'Shimmer and Shine' New Floats Ready to Roll!!!

11/14/2017 2:07 PM PST

SPOILER ALERT!!!

Macy's will be unveiling several new floats at their 91st Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade a week from Thursday ... and we got a first look at some of those making a debut.

Most of the newbies will be geared toward kids -- including floats for "Shimmer and Shine," Sprout, and our favorite ... "Parade Day Mischief" by Sour Patch Kids candy.

Other floats include food-themed additions from Entenmann's and Green Giant. The new floats are currently being staged in a big studio in Moonachie City, NJ and will make their way toward Manhattan as Turkey Day approaches. In really BIG Ubers, we're guessing.

Jimmy Garoppolo Likes Beer & Debauchery (Not That There's Anything Wrong with That)

11/12/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Turns out ... Jimmy Garoppolo's a bro.

Now that Tom Brady's former backup is in the news for being traded to the 49ers ... someone sent us some footage of Jimmy partying during St. Patrick's Day -- and guess what? Bro's gonna bro.

Jimmy G. rolled into the Old Crow Smokehouse bar in Chicago back in March and turned up with his 10 to 15-person bro squad. We're told the QB was like a handsomer, tinier Gronk. 

Don't worry ... no Ezekiel Elliott scandal stuff -- just a bro doing bro stuff with his bros. 

Cheers to new beginnings? 

Beyonce Check Me Out I'm 5 Different Lil' Kims!!!

11/3/2017 4:13 PM PDT

Beyonce was Lil' Kim for Halloween but she didn't just have one costume in her closet ... she had 5! 

Bey shared the looks on her Instagram Friday, a few days post-Halloween, and it's impressive.

There's 1997 Lil' Kim in a fluorescent fur from her "No Way Out" tour, and Lil' Kim's signature blue Chanel wig from her Manhattan File Magazine cover, plus the costume Bey was pictured in at a Halloween party where she went as Kim from Missy Elliott's "The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)" video.

Noticeably missing, though, was Lil' Kim's 1999 MTV Video Music Awards red carpet look, but the admiration is real.

No word of a collab ... yet.
