Every stuffed crust pizza has a silver lining.

After Wedding Meltdown
5/28/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Rob Kardashian is determined to drop his considerable gut after fleeing Kimye's wedding in fat shame ... vowing to hit the gym EVERY DAY until he sees his toes again, Rob's trainer tells TMZ.
Celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson tells us ... Rob texted him when he arrived back from Italy, where he bailed on Kimye's wedding because he felt too fat to pose for family photographs.
Gunnar says Rob's text was clear as crystal -- he wanted to hit the ground running ... literally ... posting up workouts every day this week, and continuing the intensity until the fat is gone.
As we reported, Rob's gym regimen hit a lull before Kim's wedding -- he worked out just a couple times a week -- but we're told Rob is now determined to get his old body back.
Gunnar tells us ... he will show Rob no mercy -- he'll endure a full hour of high-intensity full body exercises, cardio, resistance training ... the whole hog -- daily.
Gunnar tells us ... "Rob is locked and loaded" ... and NOT with cheeseburgers.
Casey Kasem's Daughter
Weight Loss Program Made Me Fatter and ...
Nearly Killed Me

Casey Kasem's daughter -- an aspiring singer -- claims her weight problem went from bad to DEADLY ... all thanks to a quack wellness center that plied her with crappy weight loss meds ... and now she's suing.
Liberty Kasem filed the lawsuit against Dr. Edgar Guess of Beverly Hills Wellness Center, claiming she sought out his medical advice on losing weight while prepping for a music video shoot in 2012.
Kasem claims Guess gave her a treatment plan that included a new diet, vitamins, meds, and supplements. Six months later Kasem says she began to experience serious health problems.
One day, Kasem says she began to sweat profusely and vomit -- and exhibited other symptoms that caused her to fear for her life. Worst of all, she claims she hadn't lost any weight ... in fact, she'd GAINED.
As a result of the sudden health problems, Kasem claims she had to be hospitalized. She's suing Guess for medical bills, lost wages, and other unspecified damages.
We've reached out to Guess, but haven't heard back.

I Never Asked Sherri
To Stay Thin
5/17/2014 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Sally tells TMZ he did NOT want Sherri Shepherd to sign an amendment to their prenup ... despite the fact that TMZ has a copy of the amendment in question.
Lamar insists, "I did not want her to sign an amendment to our prenup." TMZ broke the story, at some point during the marriage, he presented Sherri with a document that required her, among other things, to say she would commit to staying thin. We're told she refused to sign it.
And we're told Sherri's current lawyer is in possession of the amendment in question.
Lamar goes on, "We had a lot of love in our marriage. I still love her. To no one's fault, at some point, we started to view marriage differently. I refuse to let her friend's, advisors, hanger-on's and the media sullen those memories."

Rules for Our Marriage:
1) DON'T GET FAT
5/17/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Sherri Shepherd's estranged husband wanted her to sign a document promising that she would enjoy sex and not get fat ... TMZ has learned.
Sherri and Lamar Sally signed a prenup before they got hitched in 2011. We're told at some point after the wedding, Lamar wanted an amendment to the prenup, which included the following:
-- "I respect my husband's opinions and recognize him as the leader of our home. I will always speak well of my husband."
-- "I enjoy having sex with my husband. I crave intimacy with him and want to be uninhibited and free in our lovemaking."
-- "MY BODY IS IMPORTANT TO ME. I STRIVE TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY WEIGHT AND EXERCISE AT LEAST THREE TIMES A WEEK." (HIS emphasis)
-- "It is my joy to submit to my husband as a way to honor God."
Of course Sherri rejected the amendment.
Lamar filed for separation earlier this month ... Sherri has since filed for divorce. They're fighting over custody of their unborn baby via surrogate.
We contacted Lamar's lawyer ... so far no word back.

Tom Cruise's Son

Connor Cruise hit the beach on the Mexican Riviera ... and was almost unrecognizable with dreadlocks and a chinstrap.
Tom's son is 19 now ... and looking much different from the kid we used to see around NYC and L.A.
Connor was down in Mexico for the grand opening of a Hard Rock Hotel and Casino -- and of course Cinco de Mayo.
CC's been blowing up as a DJ -- we shot him about a year ago after a gig in L.A. ... and the difference is amazing.

What isn't Gilbert Grape eating? Leonardo DiCaprio hit the beach last week with his 21-year-old supermodel girlfriend looking rounder than usual ... but the fact is, Leo's so rich and awesome, it doesn't matter.
Days before dancing like a weirdo at Coachella, Leo and his GF Toni Garrn vacationed in Bora Bora. While Toni removed her top and unleashed her boobs, Leo removed his top and unleashed his as well.
And no one cared ... because he's Leonardo DiCaprio.
Seriously, though. We're big fans.
