Both Kenny and Shaq have publicly talked about wanting Kobe to join the panel on the TNT show after he retired from the NBA ... and now, our sources tell us the courting has officially begun. 

It's unclear if producers are trying to lock Kobe up to join the guys for the current NBA playoffs ... or if they're looking more toward getting him as a regular for next season. 

As one well-placed source connected to the show put it ... "We'd love to have Kobe."

Our sources say Kobe is still evaluating all of his post-NBA options and hasn't made a decision about what he wants to do ... but ya gotta believe he's taking this offer seriously.

Cabot Phillips, the main prankster behind the viral faux zombie attack video, tells us that since the video went viral they've gotten offers from producers to do reality shows. He says one of them even had a test shoot planned for the fam.

If you missed it, Cabot sprang the zombie plot on his sister, Millicent, right after she got her wisdom teeth pulled. It's brilliantly hysterical.

Even though Millicent's reaction was painfully real ... Cabot says she's getting offers from talent agents who want to rep her as an actress. He says she's more interested in writing comedy, but adds they'd all love cameos on "The Walking Dead" -- which was the inspiration for their prank.

Jeff isn't asking for spousal support now, but indicated in the docs he's reserving the right to do so later.

'Pretty Little Liars' Star Busted for Whipping Out a Gun In Neighbor Dispute

4/14/2016 9:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414-brandon-jones-tmz-01"Pretty Little Liars" star Brandon Jones ended a dispute with his neighbor by allegedly pulling out a gun ... and he's now facing serious prison time.

Law enforcement sources tell us the argument went down on March 24 ... and the 27-year-old actor was arrested for taking out his handgun and pointing it at a male neighbor. It's unclear what they were arguing about. 

The D.A.'s Office just slapped Jones with a felony, assault with a firearm. We're told Jones did not actually fire the gun or strike the man with it, but pointed it at him ... which constitutes an assault.

Jones was also charged with 2 misdemeanors ... exhibiting a deadly weapon and exhibiting a concealable firearm in public. That second one happened in October 2015.

Jones' rep tells us, "It is our understanding that the gun in Mr. Jones' possession was fully legal and registered, that he was on his girlfriend's private property, and that he and his girlfriend felt that they were under threat in a dispute with neighbors."  

The rep added they're confident Jones will be exonerated. He faces up to 5 and a half years in prison if convicted.

The NBA legend fired back at Horry Tuesday night ... after Big Shot Bob clowned Tracy on ESPN's "The Jump" when he told T-Mac he couldn't borrow a championship ring because "you gotta earn it."

"Did he burn me?" McGrady told TMZ Sports ... "Listen man, it was a joke."

"I can understand how people take things but I'll say this ... anybody can be a champion, everybody can't be a Hall of Famer."

... and boom goes the dynamite. 

BTW -- we also asked Tracy about Kobe's last game ... and asked him -- if you could only get tickets to one game, which would it be ... Kobe's finale or the Warriors going for 73?? 

Wait'll you hear what Tracy says!

041116-cat-jennifer-cora-getty'Iron Chef' star Cat Cora was stabbed in the back by her estranged wife, who intentionally ignored PR 101 -- let the celebrity file for divorce against the nobody.  

According to documents filed in the divorce between Cat and Jennifer Cora, Cat's lawyer fired off an angry letter to Jennifer's mouthpiece, claiming they had a deal -- Cat would file the divorce petition for "public relations" reasons. Translation ... make it clear Cat was leaving Jennifer. 

According to the letter, when Cat was flying somewhere, Jennifer backstabbed her and had her lawyer file for divorce. Cat's lawyer says Jennifer clearly did this out of spite. 

The letter, written last October right after the petition was filed, was just included in the court file but makes it clear how nasty this divorce got.  

Cat's lawyer also accused Jennifer of trash-talking Cat to their kids' school and to mutual friends.

It hasn't gotten better ... Cat wants Jennifer to submit to a vocational analysis ... in other words, she needs to get a job.

Rob Kardashian & Blac Chyna Wedding TV Special Worth Millions

4/11/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

040816-rob-kardashian-blac-chyna-gettyRob Kardashian and Blac Chyna are in position to follow in Kim's footsteps and cash in with a TV wedding special worth millions, but Rob's gonna have to go against the family to get paid.

Several big-time TV producers tell us pitchmen are putting together offers for Rob and Chyna. We're told the most lucrative path would be an episodic docusoap leading up to the big day. They're looking at $150k-$200k each per episode, plus another $500k each for the finale.

In addition, we're told wedding vendors hawking flowers, cakes, dresses and all that crap would also fork over big dough for integration deals, but Rob's got a big mama problem. 

Kris Jenner has the family, including Rob, under a blanket deal that gives E! first crack at anything Kardashian. Kris has made it clear she's not a fan of "Blac Rob" ... so it's doubtful she'd be down with the project. 

So, Rob and Chyna would be stepping out on their own -- familiar territory at this point.

Sources close to the couple tell us they're weighing their options.
