Farrah Abraham I've Got a Wrestling Fantasy ... Bring On Alexa Bliss!

7/17/2018 6:35 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Hulk Hogan. Ultimate Warrior. The chick from 'Backdoor Teen Mom.'

Yes, Farrah Abraham has dreams of becoming a professional wrestler -- and tells TMZ Sports she's got her sights set on squaring off with some of the biggest names in WWE. 

FYI, the former MTV star recently inked a deal with World Class Revolution Pro Wrestling -- but, it appears to be more of a promotional thing than an actual wrestling contract. 

Still, when we saw Farrah at the Syndicate L.A. party at Jimmy Goldstein's home on Monday night ... she seemed excited about the possibility of throwing down at some point. 

"I would probably choose Alexa Bliss or maybe the Bella Twins," Farrah said ... "I think those ladies are great."

She also claims to be a HUGE wrestling fan -- and says a match with Stone Cold Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan would be a dream come true. 

There's one WWE superstar Farrah's afraid of ... for a good reason.  

Taylor Hicks Of Course 'American Idol' Results Were No Secret Everybody Talked!!

7/17/2018 6:47 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Taylor Hicks doubled down saying "American Idol" contestants knew who was getting eliminated because, as he put it, everybody talked ... never mind what Nigel Lythgoe says.

We got Taylor at LAX on Monday night and told him what Nigel, the 'AI' executive producer, said ... denying he gave Taylor -- or any contestant -- the heads-up on results at any time.

Taylor just ain't buying it ... saying everybody kept tabs on each other -- at least during his 2006 run -- because they were all in a bubble.

Corinne Olympios Wake Up, 'Bachelor' Nation Colton's Definitely Not a Virgin!!

7/17/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios isn't buying what Colton Underwood is selling on this season of "The Bachelorette" -- insisting the ex-football player's already swiped his V card. 

The villain from Nick Viall's 'Bachelor' season was in Venice on Monday when she weighed in on Colton confessing to Becca Kufrin that he's a virgin. He still got a rose, but Corinne thinks Becca got taken.

First off, she says Colton's too hot to still have unwrapped goodies. She also says his so-called confession is one guys use all the time for sympathy. That said, she thinks it's hurting him more than helping. He did get eliminated on this week's episode, so ... Corinne might've had a point.

As for whether the jock has what it takes to be the next 'Bachelor' ... Corinne scoffs and takes a shot at all of Becca's suitors this season. Bitter ... table for one?

7/16/2018 2:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Theresa Caputo's estranged husband, Larry Caputo, is getting cozy with a woman he, ironically, met through "Long Island Medium" ... and yet no one saw it coming.

Sources close to the 'LIM' star tell TMZ Larry has been seeing 53-year-old Connie Stauddy of Decatur, Alabama. We're told they met online when Connie reached out to get a reading from Theresa. They stayed in touch, and have been talking long distance for a few months now.

We're told they're not quite an exclusive couple just yet ... the relationship is very new. We broke the story ... Larry was spotted out shopping with Connie in 'Bama this weekend, picking up some home essentials and perusing the furniture section.

Interestingly enough ... sources say Connie is going through a divorce of her own, so she and Larry have a lot in common right now. 

There's not much else we know about Larry's new gal, other than she has a couple of cute grandkids she's really proud of. She's also pretty hot for a 53-year-old ... good pick, Lar.

So, this is a first -- someone's complaining about Kourtney Kardashian sharing a hot thong pic ... and that someone is her boyfriend, Younes Bendjima.

He's since deleted his IG burn.

Kourtney and Younes have been dating since last October and reportedly had a brief breakup in March ... and word was there was some tension over Instagram.

Social media ... the ultimate relationship killer.

7/16/2018 10:08 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Farrah Abraham is going to have to answer for her hotel meltdown in court -- 'cause prosecutors have filed charges against the ex-'Teen Mom' ... TMZ has learned.

The L.A. District Attorney's Office just filed 2 charges against Farrah for her Beverly Hills Hotel arrest last month -- when she allegedly struck a security guard and cussed out cops on the scene. She's facing charges for battery and resisting an officer ... both misdemeanors.

If convicted on both charges, she faces up to 18 months in jail.

TMZ broke the story ... Farrah was arrested last month at The Beverly Hills Hotel after allegedly striking a hotel security guard, who asked her to leave the premises. 

When cops arrived, she got belligerent and taunted police ... yelling, "Go f**k yourself" to officers. Farrah's tone changed when she was being hauled off in a police cruiser ... sobbing and yelling. 

CBS Fires Off Warning to 'Survivor' Star!! But, a Really Nice Warning

7/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

CBS didn't unleash the big legal guns after 'Survivor' star Jonny Fairplay allegedly jacked its show's logo ... but the network does wanna have a chat with the former show villain.

TMZ's obtained a legal letter CBS fired off to Jonny warning him about using the "Survivor" logo for his podcast, formerly known as "Survival of the Fairest" ... which has since been renamed 'Survivor NSFW.'

CBS says it owns the logo, but what's interesting is the friendly language with which it approaches Jonny about using its logo.

Most warning shots are more threatening ... some examples here, here and here. But, not with Jonny.

In fact, CBS goes out of its way to play nice ... even saying they "appreciate interest in the Series, including a podcast about the Series."

But it's not all sweet talk. According to the letter, the studio has also noticed the season 7 third place finisher is selling apparel with the show's logo. CBS is worried Jonny's logo will cause fans to think the network endorses the podcast.

CBS ends the letter with, "We would like to set up a time to discuss the above with you. Please give me a call or send me an email with your availability."

As for Jonny, he tells TMZ in part ... "The fact that they are threatened and looking to punish those who are adding value to their content shows how behind the times CBS is. Targeting ME, and ME only considering my legacy, value, and positive life change is frankly illogical."

'Long Island Medium' Theresa's Ex Spotted with Mystery Woman

7/15/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The estranged husband of "Long Island Medium" star Theresa Caputo apparently has a thing for platinum blondes ... because he's got another one by his side.

Larry Caputo was spotted shopping with a mystery woman at the Bargain Hunt in Decatur, Alabama Saturday ... picking up some essentials and checking out their furniture selection.

Sources at the store tell us Larry and the woman looked very much like a couple -- she often had her hand on his back and shoulder ... and he held the door open for her.

We spoke with Larry last month, who told us he and Theresa have been living on separate coasts for months and were in the middle of divorce proceedings.

He also said he'd moved on and found someone else ... so there's a good chance this is her.

Theresa and Larry announced their split in December after 28 years of marriage, but were holding out hope for a reconciliation. Looks like that's officially no longer the case.

Luann de Lesseps Sued By Ex-Husband & Kids ... You Broke Divorce Deal & Screwed Us!!

7/12/2018 12:32 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Countess Luann de Lesseps, one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of New York City," has another legal mess on her hands with a lawsuit from none other than her ex and their kids.

Luann's ex, Alexandre de Lesseps, and their 2 adult children -- Noel and Victoria -- are suing her claiming she didn't keep her end of the divorce deal signed back in 2009.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, they say Luann treated herself back in 2013 to a luxurious $3.1 mil pad in the ritzy town of Sag Harbor, NY, but never followed through with creating a trust giving the kids half of the house. That was part of the divorce deal.

Now, they say she's threatening to sell the house and use the cash to buy herself a new crib in upstate NY ... which would mean the kids never got their cut. They want the court to declare she's in breach of the divorce and move forward with an injunction blocking the house sale.

We've reached out to Luann, so far no word back.

Johnny Bananas Body Slammed ... By NFL's Pouncey Twins

7/12/2018 8:26 AM PDT
Breaking News

The greatest competitor in the history of "The Challenge" ain't playin' real football anytime soon ... 'cause the dude was straight-up ROCKED by the NFL's Maurkice and Mike Pouncey on Thursday!!

Unclear why Johnny Bananas was in Boca Raton, Florida training with NFLers Mark Ingram, Carl Lawson and the Pouncey twins ... but, the MTV show's star openly accepted the invitation for the beatdown when it all went down.

Egged on by Ingram ... Bananas tried pass rushing on the Pounceys -- who are anchors on the Steelers' and Chargers' O-lines -- and the reps didn't go well for Johnny.

J.B. was thrown to the turf a couple times ... and, at one point -- he was run from the field to the wall by Mike!!

Bananas wasn't better in pass pro either ... getting blown up when trying to block Bengals stud Lawson.

J.B.'s probably best to stick with competing against dudes his own size on his reality TV show -- new season premiered Tuesday night.

12:15 PM PT -- We're told the workout  with the players was part of a show Bananas is shooting for NBC.

EXCLUSIVE

Travis Scott busted a Kanye West ... taking the fam on a retreat before getting the creative juices flowing and starting work on his new album.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... Travis, Kylie Jenner and their daughter, Stormi, recently took off to Honolulu where Travis' first order of business was getting some QT with his girls in a massive Airbnb rental. We're told the crib was loaded with Stormi's fave toys, as well as one big toy for Dad -- a recording studio.

The family spent a few days on a private beach before Travis moved on to the second order of biz. We're told barely an hour after Kylie and Stormi jetted back to L.A. ... Travis flew in Nav, Gunna and Cash.

Our sources say the whole crew is in grind mode in the home studio. Travis is keeping the private beach to himself though -- he put up the producers at a nearby hotel.

Pays to be the boss!

'RHBH' Star Taylor Armstrong Kylie is a 'Self-Made' Billionaire ... With Some Help, Of Course

7/12/2018 6:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kylie Jenner might have had help becoming America's youngest self-made billionaire, but she still deserves a lot of the credit  ... so says Taylor Armstrong.

We got the former 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star leaving Craig's in WeHo Wednesday, where we asked what a lot of people were asking after Forbes threw Kylie on their cover and called her a "self-made" billionaire. Is she actually self-made?

Dictionary.com got in on the ribbing too -- posting Kylie's cover and the definition of self-made ... having succeeded in life unaided. Many have argued that Kylie had nothing but aid in building out her makeup empire -- ya know, 'cause her family is filthy rich and famous.

Taylor doesn't see it that way though. She says someone can still be self-made with a little assistance ... it all just depends on what you do with it.

Kylie definitely did that and then some ... amassing a $900 million fortune over 3 years. Plus, she's a great hands-on-mom to Stormi in between all that ladder climbing. Well done.
