Bob Harper I Got A Second Chance ... I'm Doin' It Veggie Style!!!

8/23/2017 7:10 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

PETA has a friend in Bob Harper, who says he's cut meat completely out of his diet after almost dropping dead from a massive heart attack back in February.

We got the 'Biggest Loser' trainer and host in Bev Hills Tuesday and he looked healthy as a horse. 

While his heart attack was triggered in part by genetics, Bob says he's made a bunch of lifestyle changes after getting a second chance at life, which is crazy to think since he was already such a health nut.

EXCLUSIVE

14-year-old "Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli is a rapper now -- and she's calling out broke bitches, fake bitches and jealous bitches. 

Basically, she hates all the bitches. 

TMZ obtained a snippet of her upcoming single, "These Heaux" (pronounced "Hoes") -- which contains the following lyrics: 

"These hoes be lackin', see me in back and ... they talk all this sh*t but don't say it in person." 

"Water, water drippin', come take a peek ... you in a trailer ho, bitch you can't compete."

She also brags about sippin' lean, riding in a Maybach and being able to keep a man.

By the way, she's dead serious about her rap career and even picked a rap name -- "Bhad Bhabie."

It's pronounced baby ... no offense to Barbie and her crew. 

Jon and Kate Gosselin Cops Called Over Custody Dispute

8/22/2017 1:14 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jon and Kate Gosselin got into such a heated argument over their kids, cops had to show up to sort things out.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... officers in Wyomissing, PA responded Tuesday to a dentist's office to handle an argument Jon and Kate were having over one of their 8 children.

We're told one of the parents took the kid to the dentist, but the ex-reality stars/exes got into it over who'd be taking her home. An argument erupted over the custody order.

As we reported ... that deal of theirs -- settled more than 7 years ago -- is under wraps, but involves both parents having some sort of shared custody.

Jon ended up taking the kid with him, and cops told the pair to take up their gripes with a judge. Nobody was arrested in the incident. 

Again proving ... a visit to the dentist can be painful.

8/21/2017 3:17 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

"American Idol" alum William Hung can still pack a full house, which is exactly what happened on Saturday night at a bar in Arizona.

Will -- who went viral for his attempt at Ricky Martin's "She Bangs" on 'A.I.' in 2004 -- played at the Third Base bar in Chandler.

We're told the bar booked him for $1k and paid for his airfare and travel just so he could perform there, and Will managed to bring in some 250 patrons.

Will lived it up like a true VIP ... he got his own booth and ended up signing autographs and taking pics with fans, who also bought him shots. We'd say it helped with the nerves but, judging from the footage, he's a pro.

William Gaskins, Matt Munson and Josiah Graham all came out to rage with the couple. We're told there are no hard feelings ...pretty obvious from the chumminess.

Rachel, Bryan and the rest of the gang fired up the festivities at midnight and went until 3 AM -- with the help of 3 bottles of vodka and a bill totaling $1,500.

To marriage ... and people we used to date. 

Lisa Vanderpump No Tomfoolery Opening Restaurant with 'VR' Stars

8/21/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump is expanding her empire, and she's counting on a couple of Toms to make it happen.

Our "Vanderpump Rules" production sources tell us ... the groundwork's been laid for Lisa to open up a new dining spot in West Hollywood, the same block on which SUR and PUMP sit. We're told she's enlisted fellow show stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz to help out.

It's interesting -- the Toms are best buds and tossed out the idea of opening a joint with Lisa last season called Tom & Tom ... and it looks like she's making their dream come true.

Our sources say the plan is to open the new restaurant in November ... right around the same time the new season of 'VR' debuts.

We're told Lisa's still working on a possible deal with Sandoval and Schwartz regarding ownership and management.

Ray J to 'Celebrity Big Brother' You Ain't Playing Ball so I'm Gonna Sue!!!

8/17/2017 9:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Ray J's had it up to HERE trying to strike a settlement with "Celebrity Big Brother" for kicking him off the show ... so he's gonna sue to get the dough he says he's owed.

Sources close to Ray J tell TMZ ... his legal team and the production company have been negotiating for months but talks have hit a wall ... so RJ's manager, David Weintraub, has given his legal team the green light to file papers.

The issue -- Ray J says 'CBB' agreed to pay him $1 million and he says the show's gotta cough it up because 'CBB' unfairly kicked him out following a dental emergency.

TMZ broke the story ... Ray J was booted from the UK show back in January after complaining of an unbearable toothache that required a dentist to visit on set, 8 pain killers and an ambulance ride to the hospital after blacking out.

Ray J will ask that the show pay him the hundreds of thousands he says he's still owed, a public apology and an invitation to come back next season.

8/17/2017 7:37 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Kim Zolciak's adamant her son's not terrified of dogs 3 months after he was attacked by one ... and that's why she got him one for his birthday.

Sources close to the 'RHOA' star tell TMZ ... Kim and the family recently fostered 3 puppies from a pitt lab mix litter of 9 while they searched for their forever homes. The fam kept one puppy, Sage, but as Kash's 5th birthday approached, Kim surprised him with Sage's puppy bro, Sailor.

Kim insists Kash is not scared of dogs and he has no recurring issues following May's attack. As we reported ... a dog bit Kash in the face which required surgery. Kim said Kash healed up fine and has perfect vision in his left eye ... even after getting stitches on his water line.

And despite all that ... we're told Kash remains an animal lover.

Blac Chyna Kicks Mechie to the Curb And All His Crap, Too

8/17/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Blac Chyna's had it with her flavor of the month ... she dumped Mechie's ass and she's already back on familiar ground -- the strip club.

Sources close to BC tell us she got into an explosive argument Monday night with Mechie over his constant flirting with other women on social media. They'd been dating for less than 2 months but that didn't stop Mechie from getting BC's initials tattooed behind his ear.

The ink has barely dried and already she's told him to take a hike ... and to take all his stuff with him.

After the argument ... we're told Blac hit up a Tarzana studio and vented her frustration on the mic and spit lyrics for a new track. Inspiration.

Not long after she hit up Ace of Diamonds. As we reported ... she hit up the joint the same night her baby daddy's sister, Khloe, and her NBA superstar bf, Tristan Thompson, showed up.

We're told Khloe and BC crossed paths inside and had a brief stare down. But no one uttered a peep.

As for how long the breakup will last ... we're told BC's called it game over but Mechie's desperately trying to make things right.

After all ... tattoo removal ain't cheap.

'American Idol' Struggling to Find Judges And the Clock is Ticking

8/16/2017 3:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The "American Idol" reboot seems to be in crisis -- honchos still haven't locked down a second, third and possibly fourth judge, with only 6 weeks until cameras roll.

TMZ broke the story ... producers first set their sights on Katy Perry, who will be pocketing $25 mil.

Our 'Idol' sources tell us ... none of the previous front-runners -- Lionel Richie, Charlie Puth, Luke Bryan or Keith Urban -- are any closer to signing than they were a few weeks ago. We're told record producer Nile Rodgers has now been tossed in the mix.

The issue with Lionel, we're told, is his team's asking around $10 mil ... double what they want to pay. 'A.I.' producers are also still debating whether to go with 3 or 4 judges. At this point it all comes down to money, but it sounds like they'd like 4.

Auditions for 'Idol' hopefuls kick off Thursday in Orlando, but filmed auditions in front of the judges don't begin until the end of Sept.

So there's still time ... but it's getting dicey.

Mel B Insists She's Single, But ...

8/16/2017 6:54 AM PDT

Mel B wanted to tell the world she's single ... but to paraphrase Bill Clinton, "single" doesn't always mean single.

Scary Spice -- in a jumpsuit probably better fitted for an 'X-Men' premiere -- gushed over an Air Force Academy group's performance on Tuesday's live "America's Got Talent" show at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Check it out ... Mel dished her analysis before blurting out, "And yes ... I am so happy to be single right now."

A couple of things. She's still married to estranged husband Stephen Belafonte. And, as we reported ... Mel's dating a Beverly Hills cop and is head over heels for the guy. He's with her all the time.

It's the new single.

'RHOA' Star Peter Thomas Spin-Off Show in the Works with Bravo

8/16/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.

Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Cast Turns on Corinne, Defends DeMario ... Post-Hookup

8/15/2017 6:48 PM PDT

The remaining cast of "Bachelor in Paradise" made it clear whose side they're on after the hookup between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson that shut down production ... and it ain't really hers. 

Chris Harrison had a sit-down with the rest of the cast members on part 2 of the "BiP" premiere Tuesday night, and after a lot of beating around the bush, Taylor Nolan finally spat it out ... everyone there is responsible for themselves and how much they drink. 

Most of 'em seemed to piggy-back on the sentiment, which was clearly aimed at Corinne -- who, as we reported, blacked out in a hookup with DeMario and felt she lost the ability to consent. She later went on to call herself a victim in the ordeal. 

The cast also made it clear that the backlash DeMario caught during the controversy was in part due to him being a black man ... and Corinne being a white woman. 

While some cast members did defend Corinne for the slut shaming she experienced, the bigger takeaway here from these folks is ... poor DeMario.
