Fitness guru Cara Castronuova isn't very discriminating ... she'll go on a date with ANYONE who's willing to pay the asking price -- $10,000.
Cara -- an ex-trainer on "The Biggest Loser" -- tells TMZ she's raising money for her charity -- Knockout Obesity -- by offering a romantic evening in NYC with anyone who ponies up 10 grand.
The best part ... she's open to men and women.
Cara says she hopes to go on at least 3 dates so she can send 50 overweight kids to fat camp. She's moved by the heartbreaking letters she gets ... including one from a boy who told her he desperately wants to shed lbs so other kids will stop pinching his stomach.
So what do you get for your money? Cara says the date consists of dinner at a really nice place and then seeing the new Rocky musical on Broadway.
But here's the deal ... you have to pick up the tab for dinner ... and pay your own way to NYC. She'll take care of the theater tix.
There could be an added bonus ... she says, "Maybe I can find love and kill two birds with one stone."

4/2/2014 5:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Australian rap vixen Iggy Azalea might’ve just won the coolest chick of the century award ... 'cause she just revealed her first date with Lakers star Nick Young was cruising the aisles of TARGET ... and it was her idea!!
Iggy was on "The Breakfast Club" on Power 105 in NYC on Wednesday when she opened up about her relationship with Young -- and explained why Target is the PERFECT place for date numero uno.
Peep the video -- Iggy tells the gang how Nick made out that night and only had to spring for some socks and a ring pop.
FYI -- not long after the Target date, the couple hit up a carnival in L.A. and it was clear there was something between 'em.

3/31/2014 8:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
FINALLY!!! Hard undeniable proof Michelle Rodriguez and supermodel Cara Delevingne are banging each other -- unbelievable video footage of Michelle making out with a topless Cara in the ocean ... A TOPLESS CARA ... IN THE OCEAN.
35-year-old Michelle and 21-year-old Cara were vacationing together in Cancun last week -- and Cara took things to a whole new level, leaving her bikini top on the beach ... while she and Michelle canoodled in the water.
It's better than anything we ever could have hoped for.
Don't Let This Girl's Ass Fool You
I'm Kinda Dating Katy Perry
3/26/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Katy Perry's got an unlikely new BF -- rapper Riff Raff -- at least that's on Riff Raff's wish list ... because he's SMITTEN after the two went on a date last week ... despite his obvious addiction to other women in thong bikinis.
Raff was out in Miami Tuesday when we asked about his date with the "Dark Horse" singer -- Raff says he took Katy out for the Holy Trinity ... sushi, bowling, and drinks ... and he had a blast.
If Katy's down -- Raff says he'd love to see her again ... maybe next week when she's back in the country.
We're a little surprised though -- Katy's a busty woman ... and from this clip, it's pretty clear Raff's an ass man. You gotta see it.
PISSED at Ray J/Joan Rivers Sex Tape
Bails on Joan's Show
3/25/2014 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian is steaming mad at Joan Rivers for spoofing her sister's sex tape by doing a pretty hilarious rendition with Ray J ... so she bailed on co-hosting Joan's show at the last minute.
Khloe was scheduled to shoot Wednesday for Joan's E! show "Fashion Police," but sources close to production tell us ... Khloe pulled out .... hmmm, just like Ray J.
It's thrown Joan's show into panic mode -- probably to the satisfaction of Khloe -- because they have to scramble for a new co-host and re-do the script.
TMZ broke the story ... Joan filmed a comedy sketch with Ray J for her new WE tv show "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" -- spoofing Ray J and Kim Kardashian's famous sex romp.
It's pretty hilarious ... but the Kardashians aren't laughing.
Ex-Wife & Alicia Keys Call Truce
After Homewrecker War
3/24/2014 8:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
It's the most unlikely truce in history -- Alicia Keys and Swizz Beatz' ex-wife Mashonda ... the same woman who once publicly accused Alicia of breaking apart her marriage.
The photos were taken this weekend in St. Barts -- showing Swizz, Alicia, and Mashonda all vacationing together with their children (Swizz fathered kids with both women).
It's wild -- nearly 5 years ago, Mashonda wrote a nasty open letter to Alicia in the wake of her divorce from Swizz, blaming Alicia for taking part in the affair that destroyed her marriage and family.
From the letter, you'd think Mashonda and Alicia would be enemies for life -- but the photos tell a much different story.
Swizz Beatz -- the new Simon Cowell.
Joan Rivers, Ray J
Sex Tape Gag
That's What She Said!
3/21/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Ray J has re-entered the world of porn ... and he's gone from blow jobs to nose jobs.
The man famous for making Kim Kardashian a star hit the sheets with Joan Rivers for a very dirty session. Ok ... nowhere near as dirty as he got with Kim, but in old lady terms, it's raunchy.
As Joan does so well ... they faked sex for her WE tv show, "Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?" (which premieres March 29). You gotta watch ... it's pretty funny.
Even though it's all for gags ... Vivid Entertainment honcho Steven Hirsch tells TMZ he did meet with Joan to discuss the possibility of making her his first GILF star. He tells us, "I'd pay her $100,000 right now!"
The question is ...
She's a Lady
Passes Up Chance to Rip Chris Brown
3/20/2014 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Our photog gave Karrueche Tran plenty of chances to rip her ex Chris Brown to shreds last night ... but she took the high road each time.
We got Karrueche walking into 1 OAK in West Hollywood where our guy peppered her with questions -- asking her about jail, his alleged cheating, his new modeling agency -- all designed to get her to trash CB ... but she did not take the bait. Not once.
As TMZ first reported, Tran broke things off with Brown before word got out he'd hooked up with a girl at rehab.
I Dumped Chris Brown
Because He's a Man Whore
3/19/2014 1:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Karrueche Tran didn't dump Chris Brown because of the girl he allegedly banged in rehab -- sources close to the model tell TMZ ... she dropped the hammer on their relationship because he refused to stop texting his army of jump offs.
There's been speculation that Karrueche pulled the plug when she found out he had hooked up with another girl in his facility at the beginning of March -- but we're told the break-up preceded that ... We're told Karrueche ended things after she visited Chris in rehab the month before.
Sources tell us ... Karrueche saw Chris' phone during her visit -- and it was filled with inappropriate texts from other girls. It was the last straw. We're told Karrueche was especially pissed because she'd been nothing but supportive to Chris throughout his ordeal, even going to court with him.
We're told Karrueche wasn't even aware Chris had allegedly been getting down with girls in rehab until long after the break-up.
Duke University Porn Star
If Duke Wins It All
I'll Give Every Player a ...
3/19/2014 10:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Duke men's basketball team now has all the incentive they need to win March Madness ... because the school's most famous student (sorry Jabari) will have a gift waiting for them if they cut down the nets.
TMZ Sports caught up with Belle Knox -- the girl who was recently outed as a student putting herself through college by doing porn -- outside Headquarters Gentlemen's Club in NYC, where she just made her first strip club appearance.
After our photog admitted to being a "huge fan" of her work, Knox gave her Final 4 picks. Of course she included Duke, saying, "If Duke wins March Madness, then I will give every one of the basketball team members ..."
Watch the video to see how she finished that sentence. It's not quite as good as you'd think.
Hey George, What More Do You Need?
3/19/2014 8:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George Clooney has met his match with what appears to be his new girlfriend ... and if he doesn't marry this one, it ain't happening, period.
George and Amal Alamuddin were leaving the ritzy Carlyle Hotel in NYC Tuesday night when a photog snapped this pic.
How to say ... this chick has credentials. She's a lawyer (schooled at Oxford and NYU School of Law) who specializes in international law and has represented WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange. She is fluent in French and Arabic and co-wrote a book entitled, "The Law and Practice of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon."
So if George is looking for a babe -- check. lf he wants someone smart who can hold her own in a conversation -- check. If he wants someone who already has a career who isn't interested in becoming a star -- check.
Which brings us to the question ...
I'm Cool with Paula Deen ...
And I'd Give Rachael Ray My Sweet Meat
3/19/2014 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Paula Deen can drop all the n-bombs she wants ... DJ Paul is still down with the celebrity chef, and says he'd love to get in the kitchen with her today.
The Three 6 Mafia rapper -- slash chef and celeb caterer -- told us yesterday in NYC ... he's unfazed by the whole controversy surrounding Paula using the n-word.
Paul says he was hanging out with Deen at a food festival in NYC minutes before he got arrested in 2012, and added ... "I look at Paula Deen as a mom" ... and she can holla at him anytime.
But the Academy Award winner revealed the chef he wants more than a phone call from is Rachael Ray. You gotta hear his metaphor about his weenie and RR's pot ... classic.
Talk about danger dogs.
Jailed for a Month
He Can't Stay Out of Trouble
3/17/2014 2:47 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Chris Brown will stay in jail until April 23 ... he was SHUT DOWN in court Monday afternoon in his bid to win release.
Chris was arrested after getting booted from rehab Friday. The judge had ordered him to stay in rehab while he decided whether Brown violated his probation in the Rihanna case. The judge had Chris arrested almost immediately after the rehab facility kicked him out.
The judge said Chris had an "inability to stay out of trouble." Hizzoner was especially concerned at a statement Chris made at the rehab joint, "I am good at using guns and knives."
So Chris will sit in jail until April 23. The judge wants Chris in the slammer until a D.C. jury decides if Chris committed criminal assault in an unrelated case. That trial is set for April 17 and should only last a few days. It's unclear if the judge will let Chris back to attend the trial.
The L.A. judge will hold a probation violation hearing on April 23, and if Chris is convicted in D.C. he's in big trouble. Worst case scenario ... he could be sentenced to 4 years in prison for violating probation in the Rihanna case. One of the conditions -- obey all laws.
TMZ broke the story, Chris was booted from rehab Friday for violating three internal rules at the facility -- most significantly ... violating a rule specifically for Chris -- stay at least 2 feet away from every woman in the facility. He was seen touching a woman's elbow and hands.
He also violated the rule requiring him to submit to a random drug test. He belatedly had a change of heart and came up clean, but the initial refusal was a violation.
And Chris talked smack about rehab during a group therapy session.
Chris was arrested immediately after he got kicked out ... staying in rehab was a requirement of the judge pending his trial in D.C. next month for assault.
