Charlotte McKinney

I Really Do

Eat Carl's Jr, But ...

1/23/2015 6:19 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012315_charlotte_mckinney_launchCharlotte McKinney's Super Bowl commercial for Carl's Jr. is awesome for sure ... although just about everyone is calling BS on her testimonial, because how can THAT chick eat a big fat burger? 

McKinney was out Thursday at Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills (the exact opposite of Carl's Jr) where it seemed the buxom blonde had a little sake with dinner. Or a lot.

Anyway when it came time to ask if she's a fan of Carl's ... she stayed on message like a pro.

Kate Upton, you've got a real challenger to your throne.

Bravo Star Greg Plitt

Company Warns ...

Drink Won't Make You Superman

1/23/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Greg Plitt Energy Drink
Bravo star Greg Plitt's favorite energy drink will not give you superpowers ... so says the company that makes WheyUP -- the product Plitt was plugging when he was hit by a train.

The pre-workout drink contains protein and caffeine, but Shadow Beverages and Snacks wants to stress what should be obvious -- it would never give anyone the ability to outrun a train.

Even though a bunch of empty WheyUp bottles were found near the tracks ... a company rep tells us Plitt wasn't drinking all of them -- he was crushing most of them with a hammer for the promo shoot.

Plitt was a co-owner of WheyUp, and the rep says he had full creative control when it came to his video shoots.

Dan Bilzerian

He's a Porn Star-Tossing God

Who Hustled Hustler

Larry Flynt
and company may tell their models to spread 'em wide, but they don't push 'em off roofs ... which is why they're going after Dan Bilzerian on the one hand and calling him a God on the other.

Flynt's publishing company has filed legal docs asking a judge to protect them if a jury decides they're responsible for a porn star's injuries suffered during a Hustler photo shoot.

Flynt's company is being sued by a porn star who Dan Bilzerian tossed off his roof into the pool, but she says her leg hit the edge and she broke her foot.

Hustler's legal docs are hilarious ... claiming they're not responsible because the roof toss was "an act of God" ... which gives Bilzerian lots of credit. 

But in case the jury decides otherwise, Flynt's company wants the judge to force Bilzerian to foot the bill.

Yes, we meant to say that.

EXCLUSIVE

Christy Mack AVN PartyPorn star Christy Mack is taking her talents to Vegas for the AVN Awards -- but after recovering from a brutal domestic violence attack ... she's doing it for a charitable cause. 

TMZ has learned Mack will be doing a meet and greet at OG Las Vegas on Friday night -- and a portion of the door proceeds will be donated to Safe Nest -- a domestic violence org.

Christy's appearance kicks off AVN weekend in Vegas ... and we're told there will be VIP gift bags with limited edition Christy Mack merchandise on sale to fans. Some of that revenue will also go to Safe Nest.

TMZ broke the story ... Mack was allegedly pummeled by her ex-boyfriend War Machine back in August ... leaving her with broken bones and a ruptured liver.

War Machine is still behind bars facing 32 charges ... including attempted murder.

Bravo Star Greg Plitt

Life After Death

... On Bravo

1/22/2015 1:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0122-greg-plitt-melanie-instagram
Bravo star and fitness instructor Greg Plitt will live on after death ... we've learned the network will air the episodes he shot shortly before his death.

Plitt -- who was hit by a train Saturday -- shot multiple episodes for "Friends to Lovers," which features 2 friends who attempt to take their relationships to the next level. 

Production sources tell TMZ ... the network will air 3 to 4 episodes in which Plitt tests the waters with long-time bud Melanie Marden.

We don't know if they hook up on the show, but everyone involved knows it will be tough for Melanie because she'll have to go solo promoting the show.

We're told the episodes will hit the air in the next few weeks.

Hope Solo

Husband Driving U.S. Team Van

... During DUI Arrest [Update]

EXCLUSIVE

update_graphic_red_bar
12:20 PM PT -- Multiple law enforcement sources tell us Stevens' blood alcohol level was around 4 TIMES the legal limit ... which would put it somewhere in the neighborhood of .32. 
update-grey-gray-barHope Solo's husband Jerramy Stevens was driving a U.S. Soccer team van at the time of his DUI arrest Monday morning ... and we're told it was the main reason Hope was suspended from the team. 

TMZ Sports broke the story ... Stevens -- a former NFL tight end -- was pulled over in front of a Manhattan Beach hotel around 1:49 AM while Hope was in the vehicle ... and both appeared to be hammered. 

As we first reported, Hope was belligerent with the arresting officers -- and now we've learned cops went out of their way to try to keep Hope out of cuffs ... despite the fact she was being a "major pain."

We're told cops asked hotel staffers to take Hope inside the hotel and keep her away from the situation while they arrested her husband in order to keep her from doing something stupid. 

The U.S. National Soccer Team later suspended Hope for 30 days -- and we're told soccer officials were especially upset that Hope allowed her husband to drive the team van ... potentially leaving the team liable had there been an accident. 

We reached out to team officials for comment -- so far, no word back.

James Franco Kissing Zachary Quinto
James Franco
is teasing the Sundance premiere of his new film by teasing co-stars Zachary Quinto and Charlie Carver in a steamy hot shirtless pic of them sucking face and going at it.

If you somehow missed it, James will assume the position of Michael Glatze -- a former gay magazine editor turned anti-gay activist in the upcoming flick, "I Am Michael."

He just posted these pics on Instagram to give us all a taste of what's coming ... but if this is just the tip of this NSFW 3-way, we can assume things will get even steamier.

One thing's certain ... if you see this at the festival make sure you bring a tissue.

Birdman to Lil Wayne

I'm Pissed

You Disrespected the Family

1/22/2015 11:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

012115_lil_wayne_mix_tape_launch_v2
Birdman is angry at Lil Wayne for "disrespecting" him in his latest song ... and he will NOT voluntarily release the rapper from Cash Money ... sources connected with the mogul tell TMZ.

Our sources say Birdman is angry on 2 fronts ... that Wayne is trying to bail on a binding contract and even more personal, he's putting their relationship on blast.

Wayne's song, "I'm Sorry for the Wait," is especially galling to Birdman because he feels the man he calls "son" is treating him like some random producer.

As we reported, lawyers and others for Wayne and Birdman are in talks, but Wayne has threatened a lawsuit if his album isn't released. 

Our Birdman sources say the mogul won't budge and will only release the album on his terms. And he will fight Wayne if he sues to get out of his contract.

Amanda Bynes

Wins DUI Battle

But Could Lose the War

1/22/2015 8:32 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0121-amanda-bynes-tmz-2
Good news/bad news for Amanda Bynes -- she won't be prosecuted for DUI ... but the arrest could still get her thrown in jail. 

We've learned the L.A. City Attorney has decided not to prosecute Bynes for her September 2014 DUI bust ... for driving under the influence of Adderall

We're told the City Attorney doesn't think he can sell the case to a jury because she had a relatively low level of the drug in her bloodstream. 

Now the bad news. The City Attorney has referred the matter to the D.A., because driving with ANY Adderall in her system could constitute a probation violation. You'll recall ... the D.A. scored a DUI conviction against Bynes back in 2012 for driving under the influence.  

The D.A. could try to revoke her probation, and she could be thrown in jail as a result. But here's the reality ... Amanda has serious mental health issues, and it's unlikely the D.A. will go after her if it gets in the way of her treatment.
