Teresa & Joe Giudice Old Crib Crushed

1/22/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-teresa-guidice-jersey-house-torn-down-TMZ-01Teresa and Joe Giudice's former home is officially history ... actually it's really just dust now.

The pad that was once featured on 'RHNJ' has been demolished, just as the new owners promised it would be. It came down Friday and the next step is to sell the lot, we're told.

As we first told you, the new owners -- who want to remain anonymous -- made out when the Giudices went belly-up ... snatching up the pad in August for $127k.

Joe and Teresa bought it for $347k in 2005 but lost it to foreclosure during all their legal problems.

Buh-bye to the bad juju?

EXCLUSIVE

The Braylon Edwards college comeback is in full swing -- and why? Because the ex-NFL star says a degree will unlock the door to get him into business with his BILLIONAIRE friends.

Sounds like a damn fine reason to us!

33-year-old Braylon has re-enrolled at Michigan -- where he was huge football star from 2001 to 2004 -- telling TMZ Sports he NEEDS that degree to crush it in the next phase of his life.

"I moved in a lot of circles with a lot of millionaires a lot of billionaires that have business ideas and concepts and they wanna work with you. They wanna invite you to that circle," Edwards says.

"But that's the one thing they ask you ... 'Do you have that degree?'"

There's more ... Braylon says he's also down to work with the football team while he's back on campus.

He's also revisiting his old fraternity -- but just to mentor and give back ... "No keggers for me!"

Marilyn Monroe Mausoleum Marker Up for Grabs

1/22/2017 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0120-marilyn-monroe-grave-marker-getty-2Marilyn Monroe fans have a chance to score a pretty rare relic -- one of the markers on her final resting place ... but it won't be possible unless you've got a fortune. 

The bronze marker was removed in the '80s from Marilyn's mausoleum at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in L.A. and replaced with a new one ... which happens every so often because fans manhandle it and it gets worn.

This is the marker that ID'd her final resting place. Now, more than 30 years later, it's up for grabs.

Heritage Auctions tells us opening bid is $10k, but it's expected to haul in a lot more -- a marker from the '70s went for $212,500 in 2015.

Online bidding will begin in about a month and the live auction will be on March 18.

Floyd Mayweather's Bugatti may get a new celebrity butt in the driver's seat cause Steven Tyler is seriously interested in buying the champ's insanely expensive whip. 

TMZ Sports spoke with RD Whittington -- co-owner of Luxury Auto Collection in Scottsdale, AZ -- who says he scored the listing for both of Floyd's Bugattis and plans to unload his white 2011 Veyron Grand Sport at the Barrett-Jackson auto show this weekend.

We're told after Tyler unloads his car, he's already talking about swooping in on Floyd's ride. 

If you still want a Mayweather supercar, his black 2015 Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is also for sale at the L.A.C. shop for $4.95 million.

EXCLUSIVE

How do the Oakland Raiders players feel about the possible (likely) move to Vegas?

They're stoked about the FORTUNE they'll save on state income tax!!

We spoke with Raiders linebacker Malcom Smith (the MVP of Super Bowl XLVIII) who says a bunch of players are already talking about financial implications of a move to Nevada. 

FYI, California has the highest state income tax ... Nevada has the lowest!

As for concerns about Vegas temptations, Smith says it ain't a problem for the home team ... it's the visitors who should be worried. 

Donald Trump Inaugural Committee Eats a Million On Show Gone Awry

1/20/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0118_ShowStoppers_REXDonald Trump's campaign committee just blew a fortune on an act that was supposed to perform for free, but ended up costing millions.

It all started out as a favor to Trump, courtesy of Vegas mogul Steve Wynn. The Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas has a house act -- ShowStoppers, which performs Broadway songs and old hits.

Wynn flew the group out to D.C. for a performance at Tuesday's Chairman's Global Dinner. Wynn donated a million dollars to the Inaugural Committee to cover all the costs, or so he thought.

Turns out there are all sorts of huge production expenses ... all tolled, the bill came to over $2 million. It sounds crazy, but our Inaugural Committee sources say the Committee had to pay the additional costs, which was over a million.

It's ironic ... Trump passed on a Hall of Fame Rock & Roll band because they demanded a million bucks.

Future Buses in Hot Chicks ... For Homie's Bday Bash

1/20/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Future and Big Bank Black blazed their own party trail for a friend's birthday -- including a pit stop to rage with a busload of hot chicks -- but predictably ... it ended at the strip club.

The rappers were celebrating big record exec Ricardo's bday in Atlanta Wednesday night. They hit up STK steakhouse, shut it down for a private dinner, and dropped around $37k.

We're told the 3 amigos moved on to Gold Room nightclub -- open just for them -- and bussed in around 20 beautiful women to party. They spent $10k apiece in 2 1/2 hours.

Finally ... they left those hot chicks and met up with a new group at Platinum strip club, throwing down more than $15k for 30 minutes of entertainment.

So, if you're keeping track ... that's around $82k for Ricardo's birthday. Judging by the pics -- it was worth it.

Breaking News

0119-johnny-manziel-tmzJohnny Manziel is refuting reports that he's planning to charge fans $50 to take selfies at the Super Bowl ... saying it's "the dumbest thing I've ever heard."

Promo flyers circulated social media last week detailing Johnny's appearance at several Stadium Signature stores in Texas during Super Bowl week ... offering autographs for $99 and selfies for $50.

The Heisman trophy winner went to Twitter Thursday morning claiming the reports of makin' money off the snapshots are totally false ... and he's just looking to give back to his fans.

"Just had this brought to to my attention. I'm not charging a penny for a damn 'selfie' at the super bowl," Johnny tweeted.

"I'm doing this signing for the people (especially Texans) who have stuck with me through all the mistakes I've made these past years #tru"

As for the $99 charge per autograph, Johnny didn't confirm or deny that.

EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's excitement about promoting "A Dog's Purpose" was crushed when she saw the disturbing video of a terrified German Shepherd on the movie's set.

We caught Lisa in Bev Hills, hours after TMZ first posted the footage of Hercules ... one of the dogs starring in the upcoming movie. She was clearly heartsick over what she saw -- particularly because of her commercial for the flick, and her extensive work with the Vanderpump Dog Foundation.

Sources close to the network tell TMZ ... Bravo honchos are mulling over whether to pull the ad Lisa shot, but regardless of what they do -- she's made a decision about the payday she got for doing it.

Amber was snapped leaving a 99 cents store in L.A. Wednesday, and she certainly looks like she looks content with whatever bargains she's got in her purse.

In fairness, even though she got $7 mil from Johnny Depp in her divorce settlement, she's said the money's going to charity, so she's still a girl on a budget.

Alanis Morissette Manager Pleads Guilty to Stealing $4.8 Mil

1/18/2017 3:09 PM PST
Breaking News

0118-alanis-morissette-tmz-02Turns out Alanis Morissette wasn't the only one with a hand in her pocket -- her former business manager admits to ripping her off for millions, and has now copped a plea with federal prosecutors.

Jonathan Schwartz pled guilty to 2 felonies connected to an embezzlement scheme that fleeced Alanis of $4.8 million. According to the feds ... Schwartz, who has also managed Beyonce and Mariah, admits to jacking the cash from the singer over 4 years. He says he also took about $1.7 mil from other clients.

However, he's not pleading to the embezzlement -- instead the feds got him on wire fraud and filing a false tax return ... for the money he stole. He had been facing up to 23 years in federal lockup, but is now hoping the judge will provide leniency.

TMZ broke the story -- Alanis sued Schwartz last year for the theft. According to court records, she reached a settlement with him in June 2016.

Donald Trump Cuts Rock Legends from Inauguration To Save Cash for Charity

1/18/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0117_donald_trump_donation_compositeDonald Trump shut down negotiations to get a huge rock band at one of his Inaugural balls ... in order to cut costs and potentially save tens of millions for charity.

Inauguration sources tell us the Committee was close to landing a legendary group -- one that's in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame -- but when the President-elect found out they wanted more than $1 million for the gig he pulled the plug. We're told Trump implored the rockers to reduce their appearance fee -- but when they refused he told the Inaugural Committee to move on to other artists.

Mind you, there's plenty of dough. The Committee's reportedly received more than $90 million in donations, but we're told Trump instructed all involved to keep expenses in the low millions because whatever is left over is going to charity.

As we reported ... the Liberty Ball and Freedom Ball will now feature soul legend Sam Moore, as well as Grammy nominee Travis Greene. While organizers are tight-lipped about naming all the acts, our sources say you can expect an eclectic lineup -- ranging from dance to country to gospel -- and everyone's doing it for free or a greatly reduced rate.

We're told planners had only 2 directives: make it diverse and do it on the cheap.
