Donald Trump & Hillary Clinton Thanks for the Debate Dough! Random Student Cashes In

10/21/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton helped a savvy college student rake in more than a grand on the heels of their heated final debate in Las Vegas.

Alexander Lin, a biology major at UNLV, knew having the debate on campus would mean prime time exposure -- so he whipped up a sign asking people to donate to his GoFundMe account ... and grabbed a spot behind Anderson Cooper.

Alex appeared through most of CNN's post-debate coverage, and although he's no harder up for cash than the average college student -- he was instantly flooded with donations. Check out the video to find out how much he hauled in as of Thursday afternoon.

He's got big plans for the cash -- including a charitable donation, and his personal charity.

Well played, sir. Well played.

Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz and Young Dolph shook off a near-shooting incident to fire off Benjis upon Benjis inside V Live Atlanta.

Our sources say the rappers dropped $60k combined on the evening's entertainment ... and all stayed until closing time. You can tell from this video, they weren't the least bit rattled by gunshots near their music video set earlier that night.

We're told Gucci arrived with his girlfriend, Keyshia Ka'oir, but spent most of his money on FAME (best known as Ph*** Fame) -- one of the most popular girls in the biz.

Gucci's been on a roll this week, or maybe that's Rolls.

Teresa Giudice 'Prostitution Whore' Is My Friend Again ... Namaste

10/20/2016 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-teresa-giudice-instagram-01Teresa Giudice and the woman she called a "prostitution whore" on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' are back in the friend zone ... and they brought their yoga mats with them. 

Sources close to Teresa and Danielle Staub tell us ... the former foes connected for the first time since Danielle left the show in 2010 by taking a yoga class together. Teresa reached out to Danielle after she heard she was tweeting out support for her during her family and legal problems.

We're told Teresa fell in love with yoga -- something Danielle has done for a long time -- while she was in prison ... so it was the perfect idea for their reunion. 

It seems like the friend date was legit too, because 'RHONJ' isn't filming right now ... which probably made things even more peaceful.

Donald Trump Accuser I Never Plotted with Hillary ... I'm Republican!!!

10/20/2016 2:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-donald-trump-temple-taggart-mcdowell-tmz-nbc-01One of Donald Trump's accusers has news for him -- she'd never team up with Hillary Clinton, and has ZERO interest in Hillary being prez ... because she plays for the wrong team.

Temple McDowell -- who repped Utah in the '97 Miss USA pageant -- claims Trump planted unwanted kisses on her lips during a rehearsal, and during a business meeting. She tells TMZ she's outraged at what Trump said during the debate -- accusing Clinton of coercing women to go public with fake stories.

Temple blew up his theory, saying she's always voted Republican, and has NO plans to vote Clinton. She added ... she's willing to hand over phone records to prove she had no contact with Hillary or her campaign.

To be clear, she's also not voting for Trump. Temple says she's backing Utah independent candidate Evan McMullin for President. So, yeah ... she's pissed.

Fun Fact: McMullin is currently leading the Presidential polls in Utah.

Jared Fogle Child Porn Victim Drops Lawsuit

10/20/2016 1:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-jared-fogle-tmz-01One of Jared Fogle's child porn victims just agreed to drop her lawsuit against him, and it has all the ear markings of a settlement. 

Jane Doe filed docs Thursday saying she and her family agree to dismiss the civil suit against Fogle. You'll recall, Fogle was sued by the woman for conspiring with his ex-partner, Russell Taylor, to secretly record a nude minor. She was initially looking for $150k from each of them. 

Fogle was already convicted and locked up, but had the balls to sue the girl's parents ... saying they were the ones who screwed her up mentally and emotionally. 

According to the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- she's dismissing the suit with prejudice ... meaning she and her parents can't ever sue him for the same thing. It's a sign they likely reached a financial settlement.

We've reached out to both parties ... so far, no word back. A judge still needs to sign off on the dismissal. 

Donald Trump Mexican Menus Now Serving 'Bad Hombre' Specials

10/20/2016 2:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Mexican restaurants across America are cashing in "bigly" on Donald Trump's "bad hombres" comment from the third and final presidential debate.

We spoke to Mexican restaurants in 3 different states -- Tennessee, Maine and Pennsylvania, who clapped back at Trump by adding "bad hombre" specials to the menu.

The El Corazon taco truck in Portland, Maine says they sold out of their "Bad Hombre Burrito" 2 hours after putting it on the menu Thursday morning. The Grubhouse in Philly says it added the "Bad Hombre Breakfast Sandwich" which they say is tremendous since it's stocked with chorizo, eggs, pepper jack and jalapeño ketchup.

To wash it all down ... Rosepepper Cantina, an award-winning stomp in Nashville, is serving up the "Bad Hombre" cocktail which features "very, very strong, believe me, Mezcal" and "The Nasty Woman" with potent, but well-aged tequila. 

Mexican food ... making America great again.
