Looks like Honey Boo Boo may have found her true calling in eating competitions … because you gotta see how she destroyed the field! Not to mention a perfectly good watermelon.
Warning: Some viewers may find these images disturbing. Or maybe hunger-inducing.
MJ from 'Shahs'
Lilly G. Was a Total
Fraud of Sunset
7/11/2014 1:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mercedes Javid must be a bad ass driver ... in reverse -- 'cause she wasted no time backing up the bus over her fired "Shahs of Sunset" cast mate Lilly Ghalichi.
MJ's not the least bit upset about Lilly getting 86'd ... telling us last night that Lilly had to because she broke the first rule of reality TV -- she sucked at being real.
As TMZ first reported ... Lilly got canned for being "boring" -- so maybe the problem was ... she was TOO real?
Whatever the reason -- you can almost hear MJ humming, "Ding Dong! The Witch is Dead" in this clip.
Nick Young & Iggy
WE'D NEVER DO A REALITY SHOW
Don't Wanna End Up Like Lamar Odom!
7/11/2014 6:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nick Young and Iggy Azalea tell TMZ Sports ... they'll NEVER try to keep up with the Kardashians in the world of reality TV ... because they don't wanna end up like Lamar and Khloe.
The Lakers star and the rapper were leaving Crustacean in Beverly Hills last night -- and seemed to be having so much fun with each other in front of the cameras, we asked if they would ever consider a reality show in their future.
Not only did Nick shoot down the idea -- but also used Lamar Odom as Exhibit A ... telling us things have gotten so bad between L.O. and K.K., they can't even go to the same nightclubs anymore.
And they aren't the only relationship that's fizzled after reality TV ... just ask:
-- Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey
-- Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro
-- Hulk Hogan and Linda
-- Jon and Kate Gosselin
-- Whitney and Bobby
-- Kim K and Kris H.
-- Kim K and Reggie Bush
-- Britney and K-Fed
-- Kordell Stewart and Porsha
The list goes on, but you get the point.
Honey Boo Boo
Smashes Melon Eating Contest!!
Other Kids Can't Hang
7/11/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Honey Boo Boo absolutely inhaled a giant slice of watermelon, and taught a table full of kids a valuable lesson -- she will RUIN YOU in competitive eating!
It all went down in Panama City, FL -- where HBB and the fam are vacationing -- during a children's watermelon eating contest, and honestly ... Joey Chestnut himself would applaud the 8-year-old girl's performance.
It's clear from the video -- the 7 other kids never stood a chance. Just like that poor, poor melon.
Mama June taught her baby good ... never waste a single drop of food.
My Gruesome Ass Renovation
7/11/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Mob Wives" star Renee Graziano got worked over HARD by a plastic surgeon -- while wide awake -- all in the pursuit of the perfect butt, and the video is a total train wreck ... centered on the caboose, of course.
Graziano tells TMZ she sought out fat-sucking lipo doc Ayman Shahine to harvest gobs of fat from her butt and lower back to re-shape her ass. As we told you ... GG from "Shahs of Sunset" also got a butt lift recently.
According to Doc Shahine, Renee's fat transfer took under 2 hours ... and he recorded it for a possible reality TV show.
Two highlights: Renee's groggy testimonial -- and the giant Italian moon that's about to hit your eye like a big pizza pie.
It won't be Amore.
GG From 'Shahs of Sunset'
Littler in the Middle ...
A Little More Back
7/10/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Shahs of Sunset" star Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi orchestrated a fat trade between her stomach and her ass ... and it looks like both parts came up winners in the deal.
GG hit up Dr. Rollins at Elite Body Sculpture in Beverly Hills recently -- same place Shanna Moakler went last year -- where she received a Brazilian butt lift and an Airsculpt Laser Liposculpture to suck fat out of her abdomen ... then had it transferred into her butt.
In all, we're told the quickie procedure took three inches off her waistline and removed 1 liter of pure fat.
Jersey Shorts Lawyer for $29K
... Lawyer Sues
7/10/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Situation is in the worst kind of legal trouble -- the kind where his lawyer can't help, because his lawyer is the one who's suing him ... for 4 years of unpaid legal bills.
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and his brother Marc Sorrentino owe long-time attorney Richard Wolfe $29,000 in legal fees from 2009-13 ... according to the lawsuit filed by Wolfe, and obtained by TMZ.
In the suit, Wolfe says the bros did knock $10,000 of their tab -- but also made failed attempts to pay ... including a cancelled $2,000 check, and a bounced $2,000 check.
He now wants damages for the bad checks, on top of the $29K.
As we first told you ... Mike's tanning salon employees accused him of bouncing their paychecks last month, and he got arrested for fighting his other brother.
So, yeah ... paying legal bills would be beneficial for this guy.

'Boring' Lilly Ghalichi Fired
From Upcoming Season
7/9/2014 3:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
One of the "Shahs of Sunset" has been 86'd for being terminally uninteresting -- Lilly Ghalichi will no longer appear on the show ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to production tell us Season 4 of the show has been shooting for months now ... and fashion designer/attorney Lilly G. hasn't been part of the fun.
One source described producers' problem with Lilly in one simple word ... "boring."
We're told her replacement has been shooting with the rest of the cast, but for now they're keeping the identity under wraps.
Not to worry ... recently engaged Lilly's hot-yet-annoying scenes should be adequately covered by GG.
Lilly, a blind woman coulda seen this coming.
Convict Who Claims Affair ...
He's a Scumbag, Lawyer Says
7/9/2014 12:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian did NOT bang a convict while she was engaged to Kris Humphries ... and the con is nothing but a swindler and liar ... so says Kim's lawyer in a scathing letter.
Andrey Hicks sent a website an email he claimed was written by Kim herself, admitting the two had an affair in Monaco shortly before her wedding to Kris ... and it was "a mistake."
Now Kim's lawyer, Marty Singer, has sent Andrey -- better known as inmate #21236-055 -- a letter ripping into him, calling him "a swindling convict and a liar," adding Andrey has even called himself "a greedy capitalist who went to jail for a greedy scheme."
In fact ... Andrey is a greedy capitalist who went to PRISON for a greedy, hedge fund scheme.
As for the email, Singer says the email is fake ... and Kim never ever sent it.
Here's the best part. Singer calls Andrey out for claiming he got a Ph.D in mathematics from Harvard, saying, "...you dropped out of Harvard after three semesters and earned a D- in the only math course you took at Harvard."
Singer ends by challenging Andrey to take a polygraph.
Dentist Tries to Make Killing
Off Her Mouth!
7/9/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian is so famous ... a dentist is trying to sell a judgment he got against the reality star for nearly FOUR TIMES what it's worth ... because she's just that famous.
The backstory is great. Kim went to Dr. Craig Gordon back in 2001 to switch out her silver fillings for more attractive porcelain fillings. According to a 2002 lawsuit ... Kim stiffed the dentist ... but she was a no show in court and he got a default judgment for $1,605.73.
Dr. Gordon tried in vain to collect ... even going as far as trying to prevent her from divorcing Kris Humphries until she paid the judgment ... but that didn't work.
So now Dr. Gordon is trying to sell his judgment to the highest bidder ... someone who either likes or hates Kim so much, they'll spend time and money to get a check from KK herself.
Now here's the best part. Since interest has accumulated, the judgement has swelled to $3,486.85. The good doctor believes he can sell it for $13,000 ... he says because of its "collectible value."
Now that's what you call a judgment with teeth.
Drinking Was a Problem
But I've Changed
7/9/2014 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The relationship problems between Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian are more about alcohol than partying ... sources connected with the couple tell TMZ.
As you know Kourtney threw Scott out of their house recently because she was fed up with the way he parties. Now we know the way ... and it involves booze.
We're told Kourtney was upset because when Scott went out he got wasted, and when he came home it wasn't pretty. It's not that he did it every night, but when he did she went ballistic.
Here's the good news. Kourtney has no problem with Scott going to clubs. In fact ... he makes a lot of money doing appearances, and it's good for the Kardashian business.
For Scott's part ... he's promised Kourtney he'd stay away from the bottle when he went clubbing, and so far so good.
Disick took home a nice paycheck -- around 50k -- for his gig Saturday night at Harrah's Pool After Dark. Our spies say he didn't have a single drink all night but did smoke a bunch of cigarettes.
And he wore some cool shoes.
As we previously reported, Scott and Kourtney have been working on their marital problems with the pastor who married Kim and Kanye. Our sources say Pastor Wilkerson has been a good influence on Scott and he's cut back on the drinking big time.
We're told with baby #3 on the way, Scott is ready to settle down and be a good dad.
No offense, Mason and Penelope.
'Housewives' Star Apollo Nida
8 Years In Prison
Sentence Shortened For SNITCHING
7/8/2014 12:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Apollo Nida just got an enormous break for singing like a canary ... he got 1/4 the maximum sentence for a massive money fraud scheme.
Nida -- who appears on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" with wife Phaedra Parks -- was just sentenced to 8 years in federal prison for cashing stolen checks and laundering more than $2.3 mil through phony bank accounts.
The judge who sentenced him today in a Georgia court said Nida did indeed cooperate with federal investigators by spilling criminal secrets ... and that's why he got leniency.
Nida could have been sentenced to 30 years, so 8 years is a big victory.
It's all relative folks.
Kim and Kanye
Ellen's Got Nothing on Us
We're Flipping Houses Too!
7/8/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West don't see bedrooms and bathrooms in their new mansion ... they see dollar signs ... and that's why they're going to sell it and officially enter the house-flipping market.
Kim and Kanye bought an $11 million mansion in Bel Air last year and did a major redo. Their plan going in was to live in it, but sources connected with the couple tell us ... they've been told they could make millions if they sell it so, like Ellen, they're saying 'Why not?"
But this won't just be a one off. We're told Kim and Kanye enjoyed the renovation process so much they've decided to make it a side business. Their plan is to renovate several houses/estates a year.
As for why they think they have what it takes ... actually, their angle is that they know the best people in various fields of home renovation -- architects, landscapers, interior designers, etc.
As for their living situation ... we're told Kim and Kanye are happy living with Kris Jenner for now. Plenty of space, and a built-in babysitter.
