Lindsay Lohan

Sabotages Big Reveal on

'Million Dollar Decorators'

EXCLUSIVE
1207_lindsay_lohan_rented_house_launchLindsay Lohan nearly torpedoed her episode of "Million Dollar Decorators" on Bravo -- after the network spent roughly $200,000 renovating Lindsay's Beverly Hills mansion -- because TMZ has learned she refused to film the big reveal moment for the show.

Sources close to Lindsay tell us she agreed to film the segment for the show earlier this year -- and in exchange, the people behind MDD spent $200,000 on expensive furniture and other trappings for her house ... which Lindsay's now renting for $8,000 a month.

We're told Lindsay was initially cooperative -- filming a furniture shopping segment back in March and spending several more days shooting in the home before the renovations.

The show then went to work on the house -- filming the entire renovation process -- but when it came time to shoot the big reveal in April, Lindsay stopped returning their calls.

Lindsay's since been living in the house -- and according to sources, the home is now so messy ... it's completely unfilmable.

We're told MDD producers have since decided to use canned post-renovation footage (without Lindsay) as the big reveal moment.

Calls to the network were not returned. The episode's scheduled to air early next year.

'Star Wars' Memorabilia

Own a REAL Lightsaber

(It's Still Fake)

12/9/2012 4:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
1207_star_wars_auction_launchSure, you can buy a toy lightsaber from Toys 'R' Us for $100 ... but why bother with a cheap imitation when you can own the real thing ... for THOUSANDS MORE?

Luke Skywalker's lightsaber from "Return of the Jedi" is hitting the auction block later this month, courtesy of Profiles in History ... and it could be all yours (if you've got between $30k and $50k to blow).

Other goodies up for grabs from the "Original Trilogy of Star Wars" collection include:

- An original X-wing Fighter miniature (est. price $80k to $120k)
- An Imperial Royal Guard helmet (est. price $40k - $60k)
- A Scout Trooper blaster (est. price $10k - $15k)
- A conceptual Jabba the Hutt sculpture (TBD)

Even the cheapest of the pieces -- a rejected Yoda head -- is still expected to fetch at least $4,000.

So do ... or do not ... whatever.

Demi Moore's Rumored BF

WE'RE NOT DATING

12/6/2012 10:15 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

120612_vito_schanbel_inf
Demi Moore's still a single woman ... despite reports claiming she's moved on from Ashton Kutcher with a 26-year-old art dealer -- so says the rumored "new man" himself.

Vito Schnabel -- the son of director Julian Schnabel -- was out at an art event in Miami last night when he was asked if there was any truth to the rumors he's dating 50-year-old Demi. Vito responded, "No. Nope."

But just hours later, Vito and Demi were spotted together at some Chanel party -- along with Lenny Kravitz and Stacy Keibler -- and "Demito" reportedly even MADE OUT.

So we gotta ask ...

Sam Ronson

Check Out My New

$800k Lady Nest

Lindsay Lohan's ex-girlfriend / neighbor Sam Ronson has officially moved on to bigger and better things ... 'cause the DJ dropped over $800k on a sick new house in Santa Monica.

Sam recently ditched her Venice pad -- which famously sat right next door to LiLo's place -- and picked up an 1,170-square-foot bungalow earlier this month ... just a few miles away in a different beach town.

The 2-bedroom, 2-bath crib is pretty sweet too ... rockin' hardwood floors, a completely finished backyard, fire pit ... and best of all it's 7 blocks from the ocean. 

According to docs, Sam managed to drop $184,500 for the down payment -- leaving her with a $625,000 mortgage.

So it seems both girls are doing well. Sam has a new house ... and LiLo has "Liz and Dick", "The Canyons" ... um, yeah.

Mitt Romney

Hits Costco

Buys Toy Car (Manufactured in China)

EXCLUSIVE

Mitt Romney went on a MASSIVE (and fiscally responsible) shopping spree at a Costco near his home in La Jolla, CA this week ... stocking up on all sorts of goods ... including a product MADE IN CHINA!!!

Besides the paper plates, dixie cups, wrapping paper, V8 juice drinks, pretzel snacks, Bisquick and bottled water ... Mitt and his wife Ann also purchased a model car made by the Maisto company (probably a gift for one of his 18 grandkids ... sorry for spoiling Xmas).

TMZ spoke to a rep for Maisto who confirmed their products are manufactured in China ... before they're shipped to the distribution center in Fontana, CA.

Of course, Mitt railed against China during his bid for the presidency ... claiming the country is manipulating currency and stealing American manufacturing jobs.

We tried to find some American-made toy cars that Mitt could've bought instead ... but we couldn't ... not even Hot Wheels ... they're manufactured in China and Mexico.

Chris Brown

When In Amsterdam ...

1204_chris_brown_smoking_launchChris Brown is in Amsterdam ... and to prove it, he took photos of himself inside one of the city's famous "Coffee Shops" with THREE joints in his mouth at the same damn time. 

Brown and some of his boys documented their marathon weed smoking session on their Instagram accounts -- advising the public, "dont worry, its medicinal."

Brown is in town to perform a show at Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome on December 6 ... if he remembers to show up.

Shaun White

Drops $3.85 Mil to ...

NOT Freeze His Ass Off

EXCLUSIVE
Shaun White's new beach home
Here's a shocker, Shaun White does not snowboard every second of every day -- and the Olympic champ made that clear by dropping almost $4 mil on a brand new BEACH HOUSE!!!!

White recently nabbed the 3,500-square-foot crib in Encinitas, CA -- and despite the $4.25 mil price tag, the boarding master managed to knock off $400k in negotiations ... and bought it for a cool $3.85 mil.

The 3-bedroom, 3-bath house is siiiiick too ... it literally sits right on the coastline, and has a private staircase leading down to the beach. Which is great since White's a pretty good surfer too.

Not only that ... the house is rockin' floor-to-ceiling windows, a huge deck (overlooking the water) and a fire pit.

S'mores anyone?
