Playboy's Shannon Twins

From Bunnies

to Burgers

6/17/2014 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0617_shannon_twins_bikini_photos_launch_v2Former Playboy playmates Karissa and Kristina Shannon frolicked on the beach in the Pacific Palisades yesterday with some unusual beach accessories ... burgers and fries.

Hef's ex-girlfriends enjoyed an afternoon at Will Rogers Beach with a few Big Macs and a couple orders of fries. The girls have done a ton of growing up -- all over -- since their Playboy days in 2009.

It may seem odd to bring fast food to the beach, but who doesn't love a set of juicy buns?


Team Mexico


... For Every Goal

6/13/2014 10:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The entire TMZ Sports newsroom just became fans of Team Mexico ... because every time the squad scores a goal, Playboy's 2013 Playmate of the Year is celebrating by bouncing around in a skimpy top. 

Raquel Pomplun -- who was raised in Tijuana -- is live-cheering the game with Playboy and Hornitos tequila ... which basically means she quickly records a sexy video anytime Mexico does anything noteworthy. 

Earlier today, Mexico scored its first goal of the World Cup against Cameroon ... and Pomplun went wild.

Sooooo ... Viva Mexico!

0422_colleen_shannon_playmate_free_party_photos_launchPink is the new orange -- ex-Playboy Playmate Colleen Shannon is back on the party scene after her recent prison stint ... celebrating her release with a weekend full of champagne-fueled ragers ... and we got pics.

TMZ broke the story ... Shannon was sentenced to 4 months in federal prison after trying to sneak her BF across the Canadian border last year. She pled guilty to transporting an alien.

But last weekend, Shannon made up for lost time -- partying 3 DAYS STRAIGHT -- Thursday at 340 Nightclub in Pomona, Friday at The Attic in Hollywood, and Saturday at Industry Nightclub in the City of Industry.

Shannon was officially released from prison on March 31, but since her birthday is April 14 ... we're told she postponed her release parties in order to celebrate both occasions.

Shocker ... her boyfriend was not present.

'Big Brother' Star

I Wanna Do Playboy!!!

4/2/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Big Brother" star GinaMarie Zimmerman is certainly at home in front of the cameras, and now she wants to pose naked for them ... Playboy's cameras, to be exact. 

The former pageant coordinator -- who was famously booted from her job after her racist comments on the show -- tells TMZ her new goal is to be in Playboy.  Zimmerman says all her friends feel she's too old to do it, but she's determined to make it. 


She tells us, "People tell me I'm too old to do a lot of things ... I'm a huge fan of Playboy and a collector. So I took these pictures on my own to show people you can do anything no matter what age."

Check out the pics, then decide for yourself ...

Playboy Golf Lawsuit

Babe AGREED to Butt Stunt

... Here's the Proof!

3/18/2014 10:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Liz Dickson knew damn well her ass would be IN PLAY when she agreed to put a tee in her butt for a golf stunt at a Playboy event in 2012 ... and TMZ Sports has obtained audio that proves it. 

We broke the story ... Liz filed a lawsuit against Playboy claiming she thought comedian Kevin Klein would only be POSING with his golf club for a photo op ... and was shocked when he took a whack. 

But in audio recorded on the day of the stunt, Kevin makes his intention crystal clear -- saying to Liz, "Would you allow me to place a golf ball on a tee in your butt and attempt to tee off a shot right now down this first fairway?"

Liz initially responds, "Maybe" ... and then says, "What did I get myself into?"

Moments later, she lays down on her stomach and allows a member of Klein's team to place a tee in her butt ... and seems to be 100% in on the stunt.

At one point Klein asks, "How does the golf tee feel in the butt?"
Liz responds, "Ummm ... it's poking my butt."

Klein asks, "Do you enjoy it at all?"
Liz responds, "I love it."

Eventually, Klein takes a swing and smacks Liz in the cheek. When asked if it was painful, she says "it hurt" ... but never seems to object to Kevin taking a swing in the first place. 

Liz is suing for more than $500k in damages, claiming she never signed off on the stunt -- but the audio seems to tell a different story.

Kendra Wilkinson

Only a MORON

Would Use Ass as Golf Tee

3/16/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kendra Wilkinson
has NO SYMPATHY for the model suing Playboy ... telling TMZ Sports only an IDIOT would let someone hit a golf ball off a tee shoved in their butt. 

Kendra was leaving the Planet Blue clothing store in Bev Hills this week when she UNLOADED on Liz Dickson -- who claims she suffered injuries during the ass-stunt, which took place at a Playboy event back in 2012. 

"That's HER fault," Kendra said ... before spending another minute ripping the model. 

Ya gotta watch the clip -- it's obvious Kendra's loyalty to Hef runs super deep.

Playboy Babe

Ass Cheek Golf Swing VIDEO

You Gotta See This Bruise

3/15/2014 7:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

031414_dickinson_golf_launch_v2No wonder this chick's so teed off -- TMZ has obtained video of model Liz Dickson taking that golf club to her ass at a Playboy event ... and it's gnarly as hell.

TMZ broke the story ... Dickson is suing Playboy for more than $500,000, claiming she was badly injured at a Playboy golf tournament in L.A. back in 2012 -- after she was asked to lie on her stomach with a tee between her butt cheeks ... while comedian Kevin Klein took a golf swing.

The video is crazy -- but the photo tells the real story.

In addition to the massive welt, Liz Dickson's attorney tells us, the model damaged her hip ligaments and nerves as a result of the accident. He also says she's incurred more than $33,000 in medical bills so far ... and still feels numbness and tingling in her right leg.

Calls to Playboy were not returned.

Playboy Hottie

Golfer Teed Up On My Ass

And Hurt Me Bad

3/13/2014 6:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A hot chick is suing Playboy and a golfer for coming up with a cockamamie stunt -- placing a golf tee in her butt and then trying to drive a ball off of it.  It didn't end well.

Liz Dickson claims in her lawsuit she was at an L.A. area golf course back in March, 2012 for a Playboy tournament, when she was instructed to lie on her stomach and pose for a photo with comedian and radio host Kevin Klein.

Dickson says a golf tee was placed between her butt cheeks and a golf ball was balanced on the top of the tee.  Klein then took a whack, but his swing sucked and he whacked her in the ass.

Dickson claims she suffered severe injuries, some of which are permanent.  We're assuming the tee was removed.

She's suing for $500K plus punitive damages.

Kendra Wilkinson

U.S. Should LEGALIZE Prostitution

1/31/2014 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

There's NOTHING wrong with whores ... so says Kendra Wilkinson -- who claims the United States should STOP arresting people for prostitution when it involves two consenting adults.

The former Playboy model was wading her way through LAX with hubby Hank Baskett Thursday evening ... when she explained why the laws against hooking are just plain stupid.

For the record, there are parts of the U.S. where one could legally purchase sex ... but it's clear, Kendra believes ALL AMERICANS (of age) should be able to pay for ass.

God, she's patriotic.

Playboy Playmate

Coke Suspected in Death

1/17/2014 2:16 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0117-getty-Cassandra-LynnPlayboy playmate Cassandra Lynn had indulged in large amounts of cocaine and booze before she was found dead in a bathtub ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

Sources familiar with the investigation tell us ... Cassandra had flown to L.A. on January 14 and was the guest of a celebrity photographer.  We're told Cassandra complained when she landed she was not feeling well.

The photog took her to a fitting and then a photo shoot in the afternoon and she continued to complain she wasn't feeling right.

Sources say they went to the photog's home in the early evening and partied.  According to our sources ... the photog told law enforcement they had sex and did large amounts of coke and guzzled lots of champagne.

Their party ended at around 11 PM.

We're told at some point early the next morning the photog woke up, went to the bathroom and saw water running onto the floor.  He then discovered Cassandra in the bathtub, pulled her out and attempted in vain to resuscitate her.

Found Dead

OD Suspected

1/16/2014 9:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Playboy Playmate Cassandra Lynn was found dead in her friend's L.A. home Wednesday ... and police are investigating the death as a possible overdose, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told Lynn's friend found her floating in a bath tub. The friend then called police, reporting a possible OD.  When paramedics arrived they could not revive her.  Foul play is not suspected.

Lynn -- Miss February 2006 -- was 34.

Cassandra was pretty active on Twitter ... her last real tweet was three days ago.

Her Twitter updated automatically with her horoscope ... her latest reads: "Unspoken obligations prevent you from doing what you wish today ... No matter what you do now, you might not feel completely fulfilled. Working harder isn't the answer, but neither is escape."  Eerie.


Jessica Chastain


... But Not For Playboy

11/22/2013 7:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Hugh Hefner's gonna be pissed ... 'cause "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain tells TMZ she's totally down to get naked in front of a camera ... but it will NEVER be for Playboy.

The Golden Globe winner was leaving the Brentwood Country Mart yesterday when we congratulated her on locking up the cover of Vogue -- and Jessica told us for her next shoot, she's hoping to do something a little more "risque.'"


So, naturally, we brought up Playboy ... but Jess shot that down hard -- saying, "I'll be naked in other magazines but not Playboy."

For the record, Chastain's not just talking the talk -- she's been naked in a couple of movies before "ZDT" ... including "Lawless" and "Jolene" ... the latter of which happens to be available on Netflix.

Chazz Palminteri's also in "Jolene" ... but don't worry -- he's totally clothed.
