President Donald Trump came through on presenting "The Fakies" ... his 2017 Fake News Awards. He teased it up as "The Most Dishonest and Corrupt Media Awards of the Year" ... and here are the HUGE winners (losers?) in his words. No shocker, CNN took the most trophies.

- CNN FALSELY edited a video to make it appear President Trump defiantly overfed fish during a visit with the Japanese Prime Minister. Japanese Prime Minister actually led the way with the feed.

- CNN FALSELY reported about Anthony Scaramucci's meeting with a Russian, but retracted it due to a "significant breakdown in process."

- CNN FALSLEY REPORTED that former FBI Director James Comey would dispute President Trump's claim that he was told he was not under investigation.

Oprah for Prez 'NOprah' Gear on the Horizon ... But Only If She Runs

1/16/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

There's at least one person who really doesn't wanna see Oprah in the White House -- and he's aiming to make some cash on the anti-O movement if she runs in 2020.

An Arizona man applied for the rights to use "NOprah" earlier this month on shirts, jackets, shoes, pants and other garments ... presumably to sell.

The guy, who only wanted to be ID'd as Lewis, tells TMZ ... he filed for the "NOprah" trademark because he saw a swirl of opposition to a possible O run. He says enough already with celebs in the Oval.

Lewis says he's not sure if he wants to start selling the clothing now, or wait until the 'Oprah for Prez' thing is more of a reality. 

One last thing ... Lewis tells us he personally likes Oprah -- just not for President. 

Elvis Presley Are You Thirsty Tonight ... Historic Dixie Cup For Sale

1/16/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Someone's selling a crusty paper cup that might've once touched Elvis Presley's lips and there are people already willing to drop over $150 for it.

The cup's supposedly from The King's first concert in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1956. Elvis was only 21 at the time and played his first show there in April of that year. The cup was supposedly taken from him at his hotel by a woman named June who then kept it in a box with his autographed picture for decades.

If you're wondering whether it's authentic or not ... the nearly 62-year-old cup comes with a letter of authenticity and notebook full of supporting "research" ... which includes a few pictures of Elvis WITH the cup.

It's being sold on eBay and, as of late Monday, the high bid was $157. The seller is optimistic they'll get $1,000 for it though.

Hawaii Missile Alert Duck & Cover is Best Advice ... But, Location is Everything

1/15/2018 1:07 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The Hawaiian missile alert instruction to take cover wherever possible isn't an antiquated tip -- it's still the safest response in a real nuke scenario.

As we reported ... Hawaiians got a horrifically false alert Saturday telling them to "seek immediate shelter" due to an incoming missile.

We spoke to Suzet McKinney -- a member of the Science and Security Board of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (basically, a nuclear security expert) -- and she defended the advice.

According to McKinney, getting underneath or inside anything that can immediately protect you from loose shrapnel could save your life. Retired Navy Seal Don Mann backs that up and adds, a basement is ideal ... but duck and cover is better than nothing.

Here's the catch ... if you're right next to the blast site, you're kinda toast no matter what you do. So, cross your fingers if this ever really happens.

Minnesota Vikings Crazy Playoff Ending Screws With Gamblers

1/14/2018 5:59 PM PST
Breaking News

The wild ending to the Vikings/Saints playoff game cost a lot of people a lot of money ... and it all came down to that extra point play.

The spread before kickoff was 5.5 in favor of the Vikings -- meaning if you bet the Vikings, they had to win by at least 6 points for you to collect on your bet.

So when Stefon Diggs caught that insane last-second pass with time expiring to put Minnesota up by 5, Vikings betters thought the extra point was a gimme ... and would be money in the bank. 

Now the twist -- the players clearly thought the game was over, as both teams started to leave the field. But when officials explained the extra point play was mandatory, both teams returned ... but the Vikings apparently didn't wanna put salt in the wound ... so they took a knee instead of kicking the field goal for the extra point.

Final spread -- 5 points. Hope you bet on the Saints. 

BetOnline.ag -- one of the biggest betting websites -- tells us that the kneel on the extra point favored a majority of gamblers ... 'cause 63% of people on their site bet on the Saints getting 5.5 points.

EXCLUSIVE

The scent of a woman will be pussy if a budding entrepreneur can nail down a trademark for her new line of fragrances inspired by the enduring symbol of the Women's March ... the pussyhat.

Fran Moss filed docs with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in hopes of flooding the market with fragrance-emitting wicks, sachets, pet sprays, body sprays and perfumes -- all with the pussy label.

According to the docs, Fran's toying with product names like pussy juice, pussy power, pussy now, and pussy positive. She also wants her trademark to include the "pussy power color" pink, and the pussyhat ears.

Good luck, Fran -- and if you're looking for a spokeswoman ... 

'Little Women: LA' Star Briana Files for Divorce Claims Abuse, Death Threats and Much Worse

1/4/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee is divorcing her husband and dropping some heinous accusations against him, including abuse, death threats and bestiality ... TMZ has learned.

Briana filed to divorce Matt Grundhoffer, her husband of more than 2 1/2 years, citing irreconcilable differences. As we first reported, Briana and Matt separated in November. She wants child and spousal support, according to the docs.

She also filed for a restraining order last month and in the docs, obtained by TMZ, Briana says Grundhoffer verbally abused her at least twice in November -- calling her a "c**t" and a "worthless bitch" ... and threatened to take their 1-year-old son, Maverick.

Briana claims Matt is frequently drunk, and threatens violence when he is. For instance, in April 2017 he threatened to "kill everyone in the house" and in June, he implied he was going to kill himself ... according to docs.

Most disturbing are the messages between Grundhoffer and another woman, which Briana claims she found. In the docs, she says they were "sexually explicit and disturbing" ... and allegedly "involved bestiality and proposals of sex acts with minor children, including the proposal of sex acts with Matthew's minor child, age 12, from a previous relationship."

The judge granted the restraining order -- Matt has to stay 100 yards away from Briana and their son. Briana's also been awarded full custody for now. We reached out to Matt ... so far, no word back.

YouTuber Logan Paul Sorry for Posting Vid of Dead Body

1/1/2018 8:17 PM PST

Logan Paul is making a full mea culpa for posting a vlog showing a dead body he discovered in Japan ... saying he only intended to raise awareness about suicide.

The famous YouTuber posted the original 15 minute video Sunday showing him and some friends venturing through a forest at the base of Japan's Mount Fuji -- otherwise known as "Suicide Forest" for the high number of self-inflicted deaths that happen there.

In the video -- which is incredibly graphic -- Logan and his crew stumble upon a dead body hanging from a tree. He comes up close to the body and zooms in while police are called.

As you might imagine, Logan caught a huge amount of backlash online -- and he took down the video soon after. He also issued a lengthy apology Monday. 

Sounds like he's sorry -- but we gotta say ... this one seems like it should've been a no-brainer from the get. 

Joe Giudice His New Prison's Like a 4-Star Resort ... Brunch & Yoga Included

1/1/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Giudice has a pretty cush prison stay ahead of him while he's locked up in Pennsylvania -- the place is like a damn resort ... even though it's got its own "deal breakers."

Like we told you, Joe was transferred from a federal prison in Fort Dix, New Jersey last month to a low security correctional facility in Allenwood, PA. Now, TMZ has learned exactly what's in store for him there -- and we gotta say ... it sounds nice for the pen. 

First off, Joe gets access to a wide variety of food and products. He can buy stuff like butter pecan ice cream, a mackerel fillet, Thai tuna steak, and cappuccinos. 

He can also buy Neutrogena shampoo, an MP3 player, and Skullcandy earbuds -- like we said, luxury living. If that doesn't convince ya, consider he also gets brunch every weekend, and can participate in yoga, fitness classes, bocce ball and even flag football.

There are some ground rules, though. He's only allowed 5 guests at a time per visit -- and none of them can wear makeup or anything sexy. Sorry, Teresa ... save it for Mexico.

'Hollyweed' NYE Prank Won't Happen Again ... If Cops Have Their Way

12/31/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Don't count on the Hollywood sign reading 'Hollyweed' come New Year's Day like it did last year, 'cause the area's gonna be crawling with cops ... TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us security is getting ramped up big time around the Hollywood sign on New Year's Eve to avoid another prank -- like the one Zach Fernandez pulled earlier this year. 

We're told there will be extra officers assigned to patrolling the sign on Dec. 31, with more frequent police drive-bys up the hill as well as occasional helicopter fly-bys.

Sources say the LAPD's Hollywood division will have all hands on deck on NYE, and some of those officers will be tasked with monitoring surveillance cameras around the sign itself.

Fun fact: Recreational marijuana is gonna be legal in CA come Jan. 1, 2018 ... just sayin'. 

Marriott Hotel Sued You Kicked Me Out ... Just Because I WASN'T a Swinger!

12/28/2017 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Can't say we've heard this before -- a woman is suing Marriott for allegedly kicking her out of one of their hotels 'cause she was a non-swinger on a swingers' floor ... yup.

Hale Lewis says she booked a 3-day stay at a Marriott in Atlanta last year for a New Year's Eve party, and before she knew it ... she claims she was hauled out in cuffs because of a mix-up over the floor she was on ... which was apparently restricted to swingers.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, Lewis says she ran into a guy on her floor who thought she was part of "Swingers of Atlanta" ... and after allegedly attempting to get her to pay extra to be on the floor, she says he got hotel staff and police to boot her.

Lewis claims she went through the normal process of booking a room, and says the hotel had no right to kick her out -- let alone get cops involved.  The lawsuit doesn't say specifically what she did, but we're guessing she pitched a fit after being told to leave. She says she was taken out in her PJ's.

She also claims the whole incident ruined her rep, so she's asking for damages.

We've reached out to Marriott and S of A for comment ... so far, no word back.
