'Biggest Loser' Winner Don't Go Suing If You Get Fat Again

5/25/2016 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"The Biggest Loser" is under fire by former contestants, but a past champion says the woman blaming the show for regaining tons of weight needs to take a look in the mirror.

Ali Vincent won 'BL' season 5 -- and recently gained all her pre-show weight back.

But unlike Suzanne Mendonca and others, Ali says her weight gain was her own fault and she's working hard on her own to get it off.

As for the class action lawsuit Mendonca says she's filing ... Ali calls it "preposterous." She had other choice words for 'BL' haters.

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Karen King was busted for scamming a person's identity for financial gain ... and there's video of the arrest going down.

Karen was arrested Monday night moments after arriving at an 'LHHA' promotional appearance at Level V in Atlanta. Her appearance there had been heavily promoted, so police were ready and waiting to arrest her for the alleged identity theft that went down last year. 

According to docs, King walked into the Saks Fifth Avenue in ATL, and bought $4,946.52 in merchandise under someone else's name. Cops think she was in cahoots with the employee who rang up the purchase.

According to the arrest record, Karen was booked for financial identity fraud, theft and first degree forgery. 

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

5/24/2016 7:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

HATERS BE HATIN'!!!!!

Aaron Rodgers' younger bro, Jordan, made his debut as a suitor on "The Bachelorette" Monday night -- and while he was a HUUUUGE hit with rose-giver JoJo Fletcher ... the dudes were SUPER JELLY PANTS!!! 

Besides winning the first impression rose -- which puts him through to next week -- JoJo was clearly into the 27-year-old ... and even made out with the guy in the middle of the show. 

Jordan's fellow competitors clearly feel threatened -- and reacted by spewin' hate. 

"You're a 27-year-old failed football player. You've done nothing with your life other than throw a piece of leather," one of the ridiculously jelly contestants blabbed. 

By the way, in the season preview at the end of the show, JoJo wraps her legs around Jordan while wearing a bikini. 

Better get used to that hate, bro. 

'Biggest Loser' Contestant I'm Fat Again Now I'm Gonna Sue

5/24/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Suzanne Mendonca says "The Biggest Loser" ruined her life, making her fat, unhealthy and flat broke ... but sources connected with the show say she's just a malcontent. 

Mendonca was in NY Monday when she told our photog she's gained a ton of weight since appearing on season 2 of 'Biggest Loser.'  

There are more serious allegations ... Suzanne claims the show withheld water, overexercised them and simply discarded them when the cameras stopped rolling.

0523_Suzanne-Mendonca_2005-SUBSuzanne says she's in the process of corralling other contestants and filing a class action lawsuit.

Show producers tell TMZ, "We stand by the integrity of the show. The safety and well-being of our contestants is, and has always been, our #1 priority."

Bob Harper came on "TMZ Live" recently and talked about the difficulty of keeping weight off after the show.

Ex 'Dual Survival' Host Sues Discovery Paired Me with an Axe Wielding Psycho

5/23/2016 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0523-cody-lundin-joe-teti-YOUTUBE-FACEBOOK-01Former "Dual Survival" host Cody Lundin's toughest job was surviving his co-host, who threatened to kill him with all sorts of weapons ... according to a lawsuit he filed against Discovery.

Lundin says producers made it look like he was losing it on set -- but according to the docs, his partner, Joe Teti, was the real menace. He says while shooting in Norway ... Teti threatened to "bury" him on a mountain while waving around an ice axe. During a shoot in Hawaii, Lundin says Teti threatened to impale him with a spear.

Lundin says Teti, a former CIA operative, once said ... "You better not blow this for me ... I think you know what is going to happen to you" -- and also flaunted pics of people he allegedly killed during his CIA days.

His biggest issue -- edits that made it seem like he was cracking under pressure. For instance, they showed Lundin throwing matches into a pool of water -- a cardinal sin for any survivalist. Lundin says producers set him up and that scene, along with several others, have made it impossible for him to find work. 

Joe Teti tells us he never threatened Cody, adding, "I always had the utmost respect for him, considered him a friend, and am hurt these accusations have been made."

'Teen Mom' Star Gary Shirley Keeps The Kid ... and Scores Cash!!

EXCLUSIVE

0519_gary-shirley_amber_portwood_daughter_tmz_instagram"Teen Mom" OG star Gary Shirley is set for a great Father's Day ... he's keeping primary physical custody of his daughter with Amber Portwood ... and mama's paying child support. 

Gary and Amber have been locked in a custody war for years over 7-year-old Leah.

Amber lost primary custody in 2011 and then went to prison for drug possession the following year. Amber says late last year they agreed to joint legal custody with primary physical custody going to Gary. They have since been fighting over child support.

The parents were in an Indiana court last week and struck a settlement. Gary will retain primary physical custody. As for child support ... Amber has to fork over $1,200 per month.

They both say they can put their beef behind them and properly co-parent their kid.

The Kardashians Doctor Slaps Name On Facelifts ... Doggone It!

EXCLUSIVE

0520-kardashians-face-lift-art-TMZ-01The Kardashians' faces have inspired a new cosmetic procedure which bears their name ... even though they're not the ones cashing in on it.

That honor goes to Australia's Dr. Gary Eldridge, who just filed for a U.S. trademark on his "minimally invasive face/neck lift" ... which he calls the "Kardashian Facelift." He says it's a painless injection of fibrin protein that forces skin to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally.

Despite the name, Kris Jenner and her flock aren't getting a penny from Eldridge's practice. In fact, he cleverly says his procedure is named after his daughter's dog ... Kardashian. 

If you wanna bark up that tree ... it'll cost you $1,870.

Whitney Houston Hologram Duet With Christina Leaks!! Update: 'Voice' Gig Canceled

Exclusive Details

0519-christina-aguilera-whitney-houston-nbcupdate_graphic_red_bar4:45 PM PT -- The duet isn't going to happen, after all. Sources connected to the deal tell us Whitney's estate decided to pull the plug once they saw the finished product 2 days ago.

We're told they weren't satisfied because the hologram simply "didn't look like Whitney." Producers and the estate reps all agreed Christina was flawless, but until technology can do the same for Whitney ... no deal.update_grey_gray_barIt appears the Christina Aguilera-Whitney Houston duet rumors are true -- what looks very much like video of the performance just popped up on the Internet ... briefly.

It was supposed to be a surprise for Monday's season finale of the "The Voice" -- though there's been a ton of buzz about it, so the surprise was already kinda blown. It's unclear who got the footage or how it ended up on a Facebook page ... but it's already been taken down.

We've seen the whole thing, and we won't blow the whole secret ... but it appears Christina will sing a medley of Whitney's hits with the hologram. 

'Voice' reps haven't gotten back to us yet about whether the footage is legit.

Naomi Judd Never Said 'Slave Food' ... Ray J Got It Wrong

5/19/2016 1:38 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0519-judd-ray-j-getty-tmz-01Ray J did Naomi Judd dirty when he accused her of calling grits "slave food" while they were shooting their reality TV cooking competition -- because she NEVER used those words.

According to sources connected to "My Kitchen Rules" ... when the cast gathered Wednesday, producers played back the "grits" footage in question. We're told what really happened is Lance Bass and his mom served shrimp and grits -- as part of the show -- and during the meal Naomi said when she was growing up her mother wouldn't let her eat grits ... because it was poor people's food.

It's a huge distinction from what Ray J said in his video post -- that he'd seen Naomi refer to grits as "slave food." We're told Naomi was merely telling a story about something her mom had said.

Not to say the "poor people" comment is great, but it's a big difference from "slave food" -- plus, they were her mom's words, not Naomi's.

Still, we're told Ray J took the comment as low key racism, and he's unhappy about it.
