Dina Lohan is far from being a millionaire ... and she's got an insane amount of baggage -- but that's not stopping Patti Stanger from pimping her out to potential suitors.
TMZ has learned Dina will guest star on the upcoming season of "Millionaire Matchmaker" for a few dates -- normally that's reserved for someone with a lot of moolah ... but this season they're switching things up and featuring celebs.
We shot Dina heading into her pre-interview in NYC a few days ago ... and DiLo was mum about her appearance -- as well as the $$$ requirements to appear on the show.
So let this be a warning to any of the dudes Dina meets ... Lindsay Lohan is her daughter, Michael Lohan is her ex-husband, her house had foreclosure issues ... and well, just check Google.
PROCEED WITH EXTREME CAUTION!!!
Dating Man Who Molested Her Relative
10/23/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Mama June is seeing someone new, but there's a big problem ... the guy just got out of prison after serving time for molesting one of June's relatives ... TMZ has learned.
The new guy is 53-year-old Mark McDaniel. He was convicted in 2004 for aggravated child molestation. Prosecutors say he molested an 8-year-old child -- forcing oral sex. June was dating McDaniel at the same time he molested the child.
We will not identify the child but it's someone with whom June has contact.
McDaniel served 10 years and was released this past March. He is now a registered sex offender in the state of Georgia.
We're told Honey Boo Boo's mom has been seeing McDaniel for the last few months ... sneaking away from production of the show and meeting up with him. We're told she's also been setting him up by buying him various gifts.
The photo was taken a few weeks ago in a hotel room where June, McDaniel, and other guests were hanging out.
We contacted TLC, which produces "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." The official says, "TLC is not currently in production on HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO. We are very concerned about this new information and are reassessing the future of the series."
We reached out to June ... so far no word back.

Will Serve Her Time At 'OITNB' Prison
10/22/2014 4:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice's prison life is officially headed down a familiar path ... because a N.J. judge ordered the reality TV star to serve her time behind the bars made famous by "Orange Is The New Black."
After her request to spend 12 of her 15 months at a halfway house was denied ... Teresa got the news Wednesday that she'll be headed to the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, CT.
Strangely enough ... Piper Kerman, the author whose memoir inspired "OITNB" was similarly sentenced to 15 months at Danbury ... for money laundering.
Teresa's been begging the judge for weeks not to send her to Danbury ... which the show depicts as being one of the worst prisons in the U.S.
Don't drop the soap, Teresa!
Bravo Star Geneva Thomas
Arrested for Violent Bottle-Cracking
10/22/2014 5:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
11:50 AM PT -- Turns out the victim was Geneva's co-star Melyssa Ford ... whose rep tells us Ford had to get 3 staples to close the wound on her head -- and also cut her feet on the broken glass.
Bravo star Geneva Thomas has perfected her skills of being an out-of-control reality show bitch ... by getting arrested Tuesday night after cracking a bottle over a chick's head.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Thomas was on a boat in NYC during a shoot for her show, "Blood, Sweat and Heels." We're told she got into an argument with another woman and her choice of weapon was a vodka bottle, which connected with the other lady's head.
The injured woman was taken to a hospital where she was stitched up.
As for Thomas ... she was arrested for felony assault.
Thomas had a less violent run-in last month ... getting arrested for skipping out on an $18 cab fare.
Accused of Mob Hit ...
Yous Guys Stole My Identity
10/21/2014 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"The Simpsons" pulled off a major heist when the mafioso character Louie rolled into Springfield -- and now a "Goodfellas" star wants a cut of the action.
Frank Sivero played Frankie Carbone in the classic 1990 film ... and says "The Simpsons" created a Carbone copy of that character when Louie first appeared in an episode entitled "Bart the Murderer" on Oct. 10, 1991.
Louie, who is Fat Tony's henchman on "The Simpsons" ... is hardly a regular. According to Sivero's lawsuit against FOX, the character appeared in 15 more episodes between his debut and April 27, 2014.
In the suit, obtained by TMZ, Sivero says he lived in the same apartment complex as some of the 'Simpsons' writers back in '89 ... and they knew all about the character he "created and developed" for 'Goodfellas.'
To the naked eye ... Louie does look like a dead ringer for Frankie.
Sivero is suing for $100 million ... or a whopping $6,250,000 per episode. We've reached out to FOX for comment, but no word back yet.
Spanish Fans Can't Get Enough
... Of His Stunt Double
10/21/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Either Peter Dinklage has the most loyal fans in the world ... or the dumbest -- which is a label they might be stuck with after screaming in joy for a look-a-like.
You'd like to give the overeager fans outside the cast's hotel in Osuna, Spain the benefit of the doubt. Maybe they're simply cheering anyone who has anything to do with "Game of Thrones."
However, it seems clear they can't tell the guy is a fake.
To us, Peter's stunt double looks more like the love child of Dinklage and Dave Grohl ... but judge for yourself.
And to the good people of Spain -- they don't all look alike.
Prosecutor Says No Way You Louse
To Half Way House
10/21/2014 9:47 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice wants to go only half way when it comes to serving her prison sentence ... but prosecutors are now saying over their dead bodies.
Giudice is asking the judge for mercy -- to allow her to serve most of her sentence in a half way house. But we just obtained a letter prosecutors sent to the judge ... vehemently objecting ... claiming the judge made it clear she needed prison punishment, and nothing less.
Teresa had sent a letter to the judge -- which we also obtained -- in which she seems to say she has a right under a law called The Second Chance Act to spend 12 out of the 15 months in the half way house.
But prosecutors say the law doesn't give convicts the right to have their punishment watered down, so all her bellyaching should be ignored.

Kris Jenner is way more bush league than we thought ... if you want to make yourself look younger by photoshopping, don't do it AFTER someone else posts the pic of you looking older than you want.
Kris is hawking her new cookbook and Gordon Ramsey gave it his stamp of approval. But check out Gordon's Instagram and then compare it to Kris's. Clearly she doesn't believe cookbooks get better with age.
There's a Latin legal phrase: res ipsa loquitur ... Translation: the thing speaks for itself.
Once and For all ...
I'm Not Khloe's Dad!
10/21/2014 6:11 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lionel Richie didn't answer immediately when we asked him if the rumor was true that he's Khloe Kardashian's dad ... but he answered definitively.
Khloe's paternity made headlines again when a tabloid claimed the "Dancing on the Ceiling" crooner was actually her pops.
But as he left Madeo Monday night, Richie laughed it off ... though he does care for KK very much.
Of course he isn't, everyone knows it's really O.J. Simpson ... We kid.

Threatens Dance Pros ...
Don't Tango With the Competition
10/21/2014 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Dancing With the Stars" is drawing a line in the parquet floor with some of its famous pros -- warning them to stay away from an upstart live dance show, or risk a tango ... in court.
Our 'DWTS' sources tell us producers fired off warning letters to several dancing pros right after they sued a touring show called "Ballroom With A Twist." The letter informs the dancers they could be violating their "DWTS" contract if they do any side gigs with the rival.
'Dancing' vets Peta Murgatroyd, Tony Dovolani and Val Chmerkovskiy have all appeared on promotions for 'Ballroom' ... but the show hasn't started touring yet. We're told they've now been told to bail, or face potential legal action.
In other words ... they own you, jive turkeys.
