Kris Jenner

Parties After Cancelling TV Appearance

It's a Miracle!!!

9/2/2015 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kris Jenner was all smiles a day after cancelling a promised appearance on "Bachelor in Paradise: After Paradise" because of what she said was a blown-up lip. 

Kris hit up Nobu in Malibu Tuesday night and there wasn't a trace of lip 911. A day before, she cancelled her Monday night appearance on the show, saying she had a huge, swollen lip from some sort of insect bite and therefore couldn't appear on TV. She compared it to "a tire on my face."

On Tuesday, the tire was flat.

0902-kris-jenner-akmgsiWhat's weird is on Sunday Kris went to the VMAs, and her lip looked completely normal -- so the insect bite must have happened sometime after that.

Big bugs out there in Calabasas. 


'Bachelor in Paradise'

Ashley Is Still ...

Tightly Gripping Her V-Card

9/2/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Bachelor In Paradise" star Ashley Iaconetti did not serve Jared anything with a cherry on top -- not her's anyway, because Monday's episode was just a tease, or at least that's her story.  

TMZ has learned Ashley I.'s telling friends ... producers fed her those lines about possibly losing her famous virginity. If you missed it, Ashley's chastity seemed up for grabs when she drunkenly slurred that she dug Jared enough to give it up to him.

Sources close to Ashley say she knows virginity is the thing that's made her famous, so she'd never blow it on a one-night stand.

We're told she's holding out for Mr. Right -- who, as we all know, rarely pops up on reality shows.


'Bachelor' Star

Two-Hour Kim Kardashian Ordeal

... And Still No Selfie (Waaah!)

8/12/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0811-ashley-bachelorette-instagramBeing on "The Bachelor" doesn’t have the type of pull you’d think … because it couldn’t even get a contestant to the front of the line to meet Kim Kardashian

Ashley Iaconetti, better known as the show’s hypersensitive virgin, was staying at an L.A. hotel when she heard her idol was doing a meet and greet at a nearby DASH store. She put on heels and a “I’m A Kim” t-shirt – not at all creepy – and spent 2 hours waiting in line like everybody else … to no avail.

Ashley tells us she was still 50 people away when Kim jetted out the back door. 

Might be for the best … Iaconetti has visibly changed her appearance to look like Kim over the years, but swears it’s mostly due to losing weight and adding makeup. Her obsession even earned her the nickname Kardashley on "The Bachelor."  

Don't cry for Kardashley ... she met Kim once before in 2010. No restraining order was filed.

'Bachelor In Paradise' Contestant

Producers Twisted My Words ...

I'm Not A Drug Addict!

8/11/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A contestant on "Bachelor In Paradise" is calling out producers for making him look like a raging drug addict.

Joshua Albers tells TMZ, the story he told on Sunday’s episode about an LA club that sells $30 coconuts filled with Molly is not what it seems. He says he was just relaying what a crew member told him, but says the editing makes it look like the story was all about him.

Albers admits, he’s tried Molly once. He was so taken aback by the way he was portrayed on the show he called his parents, fearing their reaction.

He tells TMZ, "It wasn't too bad because they know the effect of editing. ... Plus, they know that if it was as big a deal as they made it out to be, there would have certainly been footage of JJ (another cast member) running his mouth about it."

Albers continues, saying his parents trust his word over that of the TV show -- "They know their baby boy better than that."

He acknowledges he knew he was signing up for a reality show, but adds, "I don't know how 'Bachelor In Paradise' producers sleep at night."

Juan Pablo

I Got Me a New Bachelorette

... At Least for a Night

7/23/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0721-juan-pablo-tmz-01Juan Pablo was up to no good in Vegas -- at least that's the way it seemed --- cavorting with a soon-to-be bride until all hours of the morning.

The most hated bachelor ever on "The Bachelor" was prowling around The Bank Nightclub at the Bellagio last Saturday, when he spotted a bachelorette party ... not the show, just random chicks.

Juan was like a heat-seeking missile, zeroing in on the bride, taking her on the dance floor where he got all handsy and grindy.

But Juan wasn't done. He invited the entire party to his table, but they all declined ... except the bride. We're told the 2 of them drank and danced until 4 AM.

In the end, there was no rose ... they went their separate ways.

'Bachelor' Chris Soules

Theme Park Appearance

Turned Into Cattle Call

5/30/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


'Bachelor' star Chris Soules is suddenly single, and a lot more marketable ... at least to one venue, which is fully taking advantage of his breakup with Whitney Bischoff.

As all of Bachnation knows ... Chris and Whitney ended their engagement Thursday -- and the folks at iPlay America (an indoor theme park in NJ) immediately reacted by relabeling him the "The Ultimate Bachelor" on all its promos.

Soules is the main attraction June 13 at iPlay, and previously the park was simply billing him as a 'Bachelor' star and "Dancing With the Stars" contestant.

Happy hunting ladies -- 'cause we all know Iowa farmers all dream about finding soulmates at indoor theme parks ... in New Jersey.

'DWTS' Star Chris Soules


4/12/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"The Bachelor" star Chris Soules is definitely no 40-year-old virgin ... but he did a damn good impression by getting his chest hair torn out for his next performance on "Dancing With the Stars."

We're told Chris will be channeling Hercules in the dance number, and his partner Witney Carson suggested he clean up that Soules Patch ... of course, she volunteered to wax on, wax off.

We're told he'll wear a skirt to show off his man-gams, and nothing above to showcase his new, smooth chest. We doubt fiancee Whitney Bischoff will complain.

It's painful to watch but it's funny.

'Bachelorette' Alum Josh Murray

Chill out BachNation ...

Ashley I. Is Still a Virgin!

4/10/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409-ashley-josh-instagramOne photo had 'Bachelor' fans losing it ... thinking Josh Murray was rebounding from Andi Dorfman by banging famed virgin Ashley Iaconetti -- but we've learned her chastity is fully intact.

Quick backstory ... Josh was engaged to ex 'Bachelorette' Andi, but they split up in January. Ashley was a cast-off from the most recent 'Bachelor' -- best known for flaunting her virginity.

Fast-forward to Monday night ... Josh meets Ashley at a NYC sports bar -- along with a bevy of hot chicks -- then posts an Instagram with her cozying up to him. He was instantly flooded by fans sounding off -- some happy about the hook-up, but others taking it as a diss to Andi.  

Ashley tells TMZ everyone can chill because they're not dating. She says ... yes, Josh reached out to her ... and yes, she thought he was cool, but she viewed it as a group date (she brought 2 GFs for backup). So, hardly romantic and definitely bang-free. 

Andi can take a little solace, since our sources say she thought the pic was a "low blow" from Josh.

As for whether Josh and Ashley have a 2nd date? Based on the proximity of her boobs to his back ... we'd guess there's a good chance.


David Charvet

Legal War Over with 'Bachelor' Creator

But Dogs Still an Issue

3/6/2015 1:44 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


David Charvet's feud with his neighbor, the creator of "The Bachelor," has just made its way through the court, and the neighbor scored a victory ... but we found out the real culprits may be canines. 

TMZ broke the story ... David called the cops last fall on his neighbor Mike Fleiss after Fleiss planted a speaker on his property and directed it at David and wife Brooke Burke's house, blaring sounds of nonstop barking dogs. Fleiss was charged with disturbing the peace.

A little digging on our part has revealed that David and Brooke's two German Shepherds -- Velvet and Thunder -- have had a history of running loose in Malibu's exclusive Serra Retreat.

Last July a neighbor reported to Animal Control that the two dogs were running loose and charged a home owner. Last February, Animal Control received yet another complaint that the dogs were off leash and aggressive toward another neighbor.

One neighbor wrote an email to Animal Control saying, "This SOB Charvet's dogs are a threat to my children." And we're told multiple neighbors have complained the dogs barked incessantly. 

As for Charvet's feud with Fleiss, on Thursday a judge dismissed Charvet's request for a restraining order. Also on Thursday, a judge heard Fleiss' disturbing the peace case and agreed to dismiss it outright in May, provided he stays clear of Charvet until then.

Charvet had no comment ... but sources tell us his restraining order request was dismissed because the D.A. advised him to drop it. We contacted the D.A., who says he never spoke with Charvet about the restraining order. Charvet also claims all of the complaints to animal control came from Fleiss.

'Bachelor' Host


... To Be Next 'Bachelor'

2/18/2015 12:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

021715_chris_harrison_launch"The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison tells TMZ Sports he has a job for Dez Bryant next year if the Cowboys don't pay up ... handing out roses to thirsty co-eds as the next "Bachelor"!!

Harrison was freezing his butt off in NYC (we love you, L.A.) when our camera guy asked if there was an ideal pro athlete who could take over the lead role for next season. 

It's not a crazy question ... considering the show has featured several athletes in prior seasons including football player Jesse Palmer, soccer stud Juan Pablo Galavis, and baseball pro Josh Murray. 

Check out the clip -- Chris has a fresh, new and slightly more chocolate idea for the show ... saying that Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant -- and his killer abs -- would be perfect for the next installment.

Jerry, dig deep into your wallet ... 'cause this isn't a half bad idea.


The Bachelor's Hometown

We're Spitting Mad

This Ain't Podunk Jct.

2/17/2015 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The Bachelor Hometown "The Bachelor" star Chris Soules welcomed his girlfriends into his Iowa hometown, and they crapped all over it -- while producers made it seem deserted ... and now Chris' old neighbors are pissed.

If you missed the last 2 episodes ... 4 of the 5 final girls showed up unannounced in Arlington, Iowa for a tour that would lead you to believe everyone's fleeing the one-horse town. Stores were closed, Main Street was dead, and one of the locals slammed Arlington for being boring.

City Clerk Mary Jo Brown tells TMZ it was a totally unfair depiction. She says the town has a ton going for it -- parks, a community center, and plenty of job options.

Brown shared her laundry list of complaints about the production:

-- the use of ghost town music to hype the episode

-- one of the shops shown was only closed the day they taped, but business is doing well

-- producers didn't shoot on a weekday when main street is way busier

'Bachelor' producers had no comment.

Brown says she'd welcome Chris and the girls back to town -- and insists there's plenty to see and do in Arlington.

Now, if Chris would just give her a rose.  

NY Giants' Prince Amukamara

I'm Obsessed with 'The Bachelor'

... I Filled Out a Bracket

1/14/2015 6:54 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
011315_prince_amukamara_launch Oregon shmoregon ... That's how NY Giants star Prince Amukamara felt about Monday Night's big game telling TMZ Sports the only competition he cared about was from the thirsty chicks on ABC's "The Bachelor." 

Prince was out in NYC Monday night -- not watching the big game -- when we asked who he thought might take it between the Bucks and Ducks.

Here's the thing ... Prince didn't care!! He was more into "The Bachelor" ... and the BRACKET he filled out for the show. 

Yes, a "Bachelor Bracket" is a thing ... just like the Final Four where you pick the names of the women who you think will get a rose from Chris Soules and advance every week. 

Hopefully, Prince didn't have Alissa, Jordan, Kimberly, Tandra or Tara going the distance. 

Not that we would know or anything ...

Booted 'Bachelor' Contestant

They Knew My Weakness

But Still Handed Me Drinks

1/13/2015 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Freshly booted "Bachelor" contestant Jordan Branch -- who got bombed on Monday's episode -- is claiming she told producers she was worried about boozing on the show, but they did nothing to address it.

Branch tells us ... it was hard to watch last night because she blacked-out the night of that taping. She claims her cringe-worthy behavior was fueled by non-stop drinks provided by producers.

Branch says during the casting process ... she raised concerns about the amount of alcohol in the "Bachelor" house. Once taping began ... she believes producers manipulated contestants by constantly refreshing their glasses.

But sources close to the show tell us … while they do provide booze, plenty of past and present cast members have done the show without touching a single drop. We're also told all contestants are free to make their own decisions about drinking, and sometimes those decisions are "not good ones." 

Fact is, anyone who watches the show knows most women don't get black-out drunk.

Branch thinks the show should have a booze babysitter for future contestants ... to cut off buzzed women, much like a bartender would. For the record ... she admits overindulging frequently, but insists she's not an alcoholic.  

Fun Fact: She offered "Bachelor" Chris Soules shots when they first met.
