Mama June might give Sugar Bear one last chance to work things out -- and she might get PAID to do it ... on a reality TV show.
Sources connected to the now ex-couple tell us they've been contacted by 2 different shows -- one of them being "Marriage Boot Camp" on WE tv -- looking to cast them for an upcoming season.
We broke the story ... June kicked Sugar Bear out of their home last week ... claiming she found out he was two-timing her with several women he'd met online. We're told the marital strife is the real deal -- not created for TV -- but June intends to follow through and meet 'Boot Camp' producers.
She's just not sure Suge will do the same.
As for their relationship right now -- watch the video. June brags about torching a bunch of Sugar Bear's stuff ... if that tells you anything.
I Never Banged Giada ...
The Story is BS
1/11/2015 10:51 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Matt Lauer says he and Giada De Laurentiis never banged ... and reports saying otherwise are flat-out false.
Lauer was heading out of the LAX Saturday when he put the rumors to rest ... telling a photog the reason they've been spotted together in the past was only due to their long-time friendship.
Matt -- who was cool as a cucumber, even in the rain -- was unequivocal about the bogus story. Giada has also said the story was made up.
The "Today" anchor feels bad about what Giada's going through .... her husband has filed for divorce.
Lauer did give us a scare ... it looked like he was getting on the Hertz Shuttle.

at Canadian Concert
1/8/2015 6:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Bill Cosby's comedy show in Canada Wednesday night turned into a showdown between people who think he's a serial rapist and others who believe he's being framed.
Protesters taunted fans who showed up for the show, shouting, "You support rape!" Fans fired back that they were skeptical of the belated allegations.
Then things got really weird inside ... before the show started huge pics of Bill and Nelson Mandela loomed in the background.
At the end of the performance, a full house erupted and gave Cosby a standing ovation.
It's like you get 2 shows for the price of one.

Before Alleged Assault
1/5/2015 7:11 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The LAX employee who claims Olivier Martinez assaulted him with a baby car seat was an amateur paparazzi in the crush of photogs.
Take a look at the video. As Olivier, Halle Berry, 6-year-old Nahla, and their 1-year-old Maceo arrive at the terminal, a gaggle of photogs descend and the airport employee is part of the pack.
You see him aim his cellphone at Olivier, just before Martinez pushes him against the wall with the car seat.
The employee went to the hospital and filed a police report.
After LAX Melee
1/4/2015 7:20 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Olivier Martinez is the named suspect in a battery investigation after things got out of control at LAX ... TMZ has learned.
We're told Olivier, Halle Berry, 6-year-old Nahla and 1-year-old Maceo arrived at the Tom Bradley International Terminal at 1:45 Sunday afternoon. According to LAX Airport Police, the photogs got too close to the family.
An airport employee was also in the crowd, though it's unclear if he too was trying to snap a pic. Cops say Olivier was holding an empty car seat and allegedly shoved it against the employee, causing him to fall backward.
The employee was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital. We're told he complained of abdominal pain. He's filed a battery report.
We just got video of the incident.

ON HER ASS
1/1/2015 9:58 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Taylor Swift nearly suffered a terrible slip and fall in front of hundreds of screaming fans, but she saved it at the last minute to avoid a tremendously embarrassing fall.
Swift had just finished performing in Times Square for "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2015."
As she made her way down the stairs behind the stage, she got to the final few steps when her feet gave out from under her. But she avoided eating it completely and emerged with a sly grin and a short wave.
You might say she was able to shake it off like a pro.

Ex-49er Ray McDonald
Out of Work & Under Investigation ...
12/19/2014 3:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
If Ray McDonald is pissed off about getting cut from the San Francisco 49ers -- he did a bang up job of hiding it outside his attorney's office.
The defensive lineman let out a massive yawn as he strolled to his car after meeting his lawyer in San Jose Friday -- 2 days after he was named a suspect in an alleged rape investigation ... and subsequently 86'd by the Niners.
Ray's pretty chill -- especially for a guy facing his second criminal investigation in 6 months, and suddenly out of work.
Watch ... Ray's got a friend with him who says new information will be "coming out soon." Unclear if he's talking about Ray's future in the NFL ... or the alleged rape case.
Got Nothin' to Say
About My Ill-Fated Flick
12/18/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
A stoic Seth Rogen arrived in L.A. Wednesday night ... and however he feels about Sony pulling the plug on his movie ... he's keeping it to himself.
Seth was impassive as photogs peppered him with questions. He didn't respond to a question about Rob Lowe's tweet Wednesday, suggesting he and Seth were comrades in arms over their distaste for Sony's decision.
As Rogen and his pooch made their way to the awaiting limo, a guy who looks like security was by his side.
As for Lowe, he went to Craig's in West Hollywood last night ... a sure fire way for any celeb to get on camera. But for some reason he's more into tweeting than talking.
'The Voice' Winner Craig Wayne Boyd
Snubs Fans Hard
12/18/2014 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Craig Wayne Boyd may have just won "The Voice," but he wouldn't even be a finalist in "The Brain," because he almost immediately disrespected the fans who will determine his long-term success.
Boyd was leaving an NYC office Building Wednesday ... when he squeezed in an autograph and a mid-stride selfie, and then blazed past the other fans.
The little people know the game, and warned the singer he's starting off on the wrong foot.
"The Voice" is a really good show. Now name one of the past winners.
'Happy' About Kate Hudson Break-Up
... And Not Afraid to Say It
12/16/2014 6:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Happy" is not a word you'd expect to hear from Matt Bellamy when asked about his split from Kate Hudson, but he did ... and it comes off like a dig at his ex.
Hudson and Bellamy called off their engagement last week after dating for four years. They have a three-year-old son together.
And when paps at LAX asked the Muse rocker about the break-up, he used an obscure Australian phrase which loosely translates to ... happy as a pig in s**t.
Matt could've said nothing, or something nice about Kate -- instead, he chose "happy." Aggressive?
Full Fan Girl
at Justin Timberlake Show
12/15/2014 7:29 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
It's unclear how Taylor Swift has time to learn the lyrics to EVERY song -- in addition to her own -- but she does ... and she unleashed her super fan lip-sync skills on Justin Timberlake this weekend.
Swift hit up JT's show in Brooklyn Sunday night to cap off her birthday weekend. T-Swizzle went into flailing arm mode, and not only sung along, but acted out every song too.
It's great stuff ... unless you're the person sitting behind Taylor.
Not Saying I'm NOT
Dating Kate Hudson
12/12/2014 11:06 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Derek Hough isn't ready to admit he's banging Kate Hudson -- but he's definitely not denying it either.
The "Dancing with The Stars" pro was in Boca Raton Thursday -- at a Tony Robbins seminar of all things -- when a photog popped the question about rumors he and newly single Kate are hooking up ... and his response is a little weird.
Hough and Huds were reportedly making out at an L.A. hot spot last Friday night -- he left out the front door, and she was spotted sneaking out the back -- sans engagement ring.
So, Derek ... if you're NOT with her ... why not just say so? Just sayin'.
