Kristin Cavallari

Eating for 2 ...

Damn Hot for All

10/1/2015 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1001-kristen-cavalleri-splash-01Kristin Cavallari can scarf down all the frozen yogurt she wants because pregnancy cravings look really good on the expectant hot mom.

The former 'Hills' star is close to popping out her third kid with Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler. Kristin's about about 7-8 months along, but was still in MILF mode when she stepped out in West Hollywood for froyo with her son.

The Bears might be 0-3 on the season, but Kristin's still winning.



Chet Hanks

I Was Wrong to Fight for 'N-Word'

... It Was the Cocaine Talking

10/1/2015 6:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Tom Hanks' son is waving the white flag in his crusade to use the n-word ... admitting he was off the rails due to drug addiction and the pressure of being Tom's kid.

A few months ago Chet Hanks -- who raps under the name Chet Haze -- ranted about his right to say the n-word whenever and wherever he wanted ... but now says, "It's not my place to speak on it and I'm genuinely sorry for the people that I offended."

The reason for his about face ... rehab. Chet says he's been getting treatment for cocaine addiction that got so bad his nose was clogged. He adds that being Tom Hanks' son isn't all silver spoons. In fact, he thinks that's part of the reason he got so screwed up.


Russell Simmons

Someone Needs to Hit Michael B. Jordan

... With the Ugly Stick

10/1/2015 6:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael B. Jordan needs to ugly himself up if he has any hope of playing Russell Simmons in the Def Jam biopic ... so says Russell Simmons himself!

1001-sub-jordan-simmons-tmz-01We got the Def Jam co-founder out at the Dolby Theatre in L.A. Wednesday night, and he not only gave his thumbs up to Michael B. ... but he thought Jonah Hill would make a great Rick Rubin.

1001-sub-hill-rubin-getty-01Universal is making the flick, which Russell is producing. Sounds awesome.


Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie


After Wife Gets Last Tooth

10/1/2015 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930-thomas-nancy-beatie-tear-getty-01Thomas Beatie, aka "Pregnant Man," just finalized his nasty divorce from ex-wife Nancy but only after he agreed to hand over his beloved shark tooth collection.

The couple's divorce had dragged on for years and it was ugly ... they originally separated in 2012 and there's footage of Nancy attacking Thomas, throwing their computer in the pool, and at one point, he claimed she threatened to kidnap their kids forcing him to install a GPS tracker on her car.

In the end, they split most things evenly ... down to the custody of their 3 kids and even decided to forgo spousal and child support checks. But, Nancy was still able to sink one last bite ... demanding that she keep Thomas' prized shark tooth collection.

Thomas tells us he began collecting the teeth in 2006 on the North Carolina shore where he sprinkled the ashes of a deceased girlfriend. He'd collected 72 teeth ... even one from a megalodon.

He says he waved the white flag so the divorce could be over, and now plans on marrying his girlfriend Amber.


Carl's Jr. Tex Mex Commercial Model

It's Not Racist ... It's Delicious!

10/1/2015 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Carl's Jr. Tex Mex commercial featuring hot babes in a standoff in a volleyball game on the Texas-Mexico border is NOT RACIST ... so says one of the models in the commercial.

Our photog spotted Kara Del Toro, who reps Team Mexico in the ad, and she sorta says you can look at anything and come up with a Grassy Knoll theory, but really the commercial is about burgers and babes.

Kara also dispels any myths about models not eating the burgers they hawk ... or does she? 


Brandi Glanville

Smelly Vagina Suit is Bogus

It's in Krupa's Contract!

10/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930_brandi-glanville_joanna_krupa_tmzBrandi Glanville has another trick up her sleeve to get the smelly vagina lawsuit thrown out ... she claims Joanna Krupa signed away her right to go after Brandi in court. 

In documents obtained by TMZ ... Brandi says Joanna's defamation suit  should be tossed, because Joanna's 'Real Housewives' contract forbids her from suing her fellow 'Housewives' cast members.

It would make sense since the heat on those shows comes from the women sniping at each other. 

Joanna was on "The Real Housewives of Miami" back in 2013 -- and, in fact, Brandi's vagina comment came on the heels of the 'Miami' reunion show. 

Brandi admits she doesn't have a copy of Joanna's contract ... but considering Brandi was on the Bev Hills edition, it's a good bet she knows what's in the fine print.

Krupa's lawyer thinks Brandi's reaching -- trying everything she can and "hope something sticks."

0930_star_trek_spoilers_launch2Hold on to your tricorders, space geeks -- TMZ has exclusive pics from the set of "Star Trek Beyond," ... and it appears a torn up Enterprise  could be a major plot line.

Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, and Simon Pegg have been tight-lipped on the movie, but if you're itching for a glimpse of what's to come ... click away.

And as always, live long and prosper.


Chipotle Customer

They Screwed Me ...

With a Side of Hardware

10/1/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0929-chipotle-screw-tmz-01Chipotle did NOT nail the order of one customer, who says she found a screw buried in her burrito bowl ... and almost busted a tooth.

We're told the woman visited the Chipotle location at The Grove in LA Monday night. She ordered her usual -- a chicken bowl with brown rice, salsa, guacamole and lettuce ... to go.  

She says she bit into something that "felt like a rock" and when she spit everything out, she found the screw. She immediately called the restaurant, and claims she was told there was nothing they could do about it.

So, she called Chipotle's corporate office and finally got some satisfaction -- 20 free meals. She doesn't know if that includes chips and guac, but says she'll be pissed if it doesn't. 

A Chipotle rep described the situation this way, "She has been taken care of. All is well."

Don't hold the chips & guac.

ASPCA Employee Sues

They Called Me 'Sexual Chocolate'

9/30/2015 4:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


update_graphic_red_barAn ASPCA rep tells us the true reason for Li'Gon's firing will be clear when they respond to the lawsuit. The rep says the ASPCA denies the allegations and maintains a diverse and respectful workplace.update_grey_gray_barAn ASPCA employee in NYC says he was treated like a piece of meat, or rather -- a giant piece of chocolate candy by female co-workers who groped him and discriminated against him.

Benjamin Li'Gon is suing the animal rights group where he was the hiring manager up until August ... and in the docs he says he is a gay black man, which is significant since most of his co-workers were white heterosexual women.   

Li'Gon describes a sorority girls gone wild atmosphere where one colleague groped him and called him "sexual chocolate" while others watched. It might have been a reference to a hysterical "Coming to America" scene, but Li'Gon wasn't laughing.

He also says another woman called him "sexy Benny boo boo bear" in an elevator. None of those people were disciplined, according to his lawsuit.

Li'Gon says he thinks the head of HR hates gay black men, since his frequent complaints to her fell on deaf ears. He was fired in August, after he says he was accused of "inappropriate horseplay" with his male assistant ... which he denies.

Li'Gon is suing for wrongful termination and discrimination, seeking at least $2 million.

Ben Carson

I Used to Outrun Cops

Before They Shot You ... JK!!

9/30/2015 3:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

ben_primary_v3Ben Carson flashed some energy and personality on the campaign trail Wednesday ... by cracking a joke about cops shooting black kids.  

The good doctor was stumping in New Hampshire, and reliving his childhood -- telling a story about how he and pals used to throw rocks at cars and run from the police.  

Innocent enough tale about his wayward youth, and then he said ... "That was back in the day before they would shoot you." 

Hard to tell if the GOP presidential candidate's comment was truly off-the-cuff or planned, but considering the current climate ... it seems like a risky door to open.

Especially for a guy who's moving up in the polls.
