Donald Trump Hawaii Tourism Not Hurt By #BoycottHawaii Hysteria

3/23/2017 12:20 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322-trump-boycott-hawaii-tmz-gettyDonald Trump supporters who vowed to boycott Hawaii after his travel ban was blocked by a Hawaiian federal judge have had no impact on the state's tourism industry ... at least so far.

We're told there was concern at the Hawaii Tourism Authority that travel to the Aloha state would take a hit after a federal judge in Hawaii blocked the President's travel order -- especially after the hashtag #BoycottHawaii started trending on Twitter.

The concern was allegedly so great the HTA reached out to travel sites like Expedia to see if the threatened boycott was having an impact ... the answer -- so far, no.

We're told despite hundreds of phone calls and emails from folks saying they wouldn't book travel to Hawaii ... there's no evidence of cancellations. The HTA cautions there could be an impact in the following months ... they just don't know.

The HTA actually supports the judge's decision, saying ... "We celebrate diversity and honor culture ... oppose the travel ban and we applaud the ruling of the U.S. District Court to prevent it from being implemented at this time.”

EXCLUSIVE

Ashley Graham made breakfast more fun for everyone when she used 2 bagels to cover up in a topless video, and it turns out ... that was precisely her mission.

We got the supermodel at LAX and asked her about the bagel bra ... she said she was just enjoying her morning, as we all should. As for what food she'll cleverly pose with next ...

Or maybe she'll just ditch it all and go full frontal.

Harry Potter Yuengling Moves to Own Harry Potter's Butterbeer ...For Ice Cream!!!

3/23/2017 12:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322_yuengling-ice-cream_harry-potterYuengling is using Harry Potter's famed butterbeer for its ice cream ... but it took a legal shortcut that could backfire in a huge way.

Yuengling's rolled out its new "butterbeer" flavor this week ... even though it never secured the legal right to market ice cream.

Yuengling's prez, David Yuengling, tells TMZ his company filed docs to trademark butterbeer ice cream 8 months ago, and he's hopeful he'll win approval.

Here's the problem ... J.K. Rowling created the fictional drink in her Harry Potter books, and Warner Bros. secured all the rights and produced the movies. So it's pretty clear ... Warner Bros. will be extremely territorial over one of it's most valuable franchises.

So far Yuengling's application for the right to use the name hasn't been decided ... but if it's rejected the company has a big problem on its hands, and Warner Bros. could go after it for all the loot its made selling the frozen delight.

We've reached out to Warner Bros. for comment ... so far, no word back.

Katt Williams Sued You're Cheap and You Punched Me!!!

3/22/2017 5:19 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322-kat-williams-tmzKatt Williams was a violent, cheap boss who once held her captive in a hotel room ... so claims a former assistant and she's now suing him.

Yadira Torres says she's the woman the comedian punched back in July 2016 at Sportsmen's Lodge restaurant in Studio City that landed Katt in jail. Yadira says that was the last straw but adds the abuse started long before that.

In docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Yadira says Katt came up short paying her, verbally abused her and once "restrained" her in a hotel room for 3 hours as "punishment." It's unclear what set Katt off.

She also says Katt once left her stranded for 24 hours at an Atlanta airport with no money to catch a flight back home. She's suing for unspecified damages.

We've reached out to Katt, so far no word back.

EXCLUSIVE

"Cash Me Outside" girl Danielle Bregoli denies her mother beat her down a couple years ago ... and says it was nothing but friendly play fighting.

We got 13-year-old Danielle Wednesday in Bev Hills, and our camera guy asks her straight-up ... what was happening in a leaked video that appears to show Barbara Ann brutalizing her child?

Danielle goes to bat for her mom, saying the clip doesn't accurately portray the events of that day ... adding there haven't been further incidents since.

Speaking of Barbara ... we can't help but notice she's nowhere to be seen here.

'The Price is Right' Lady Assplant That Wheel's a Bitch!!!

3/22/2017 2:23 PM PDT

"The Price is Right" contestant Renee was rocking some Drew Carey-themed fingernails on Wednesday's show, but she'll be remembered for something else ... falling on her ass.

Drew warned her to be careful with her fancy nails ... which may have caused her to lose her grip on the wheel after spinning it. Translation -- we blame Carey.

Still ... it's too bad Renee didn't give it another try and go for the $1.

White House New Fence Jumper Dangled From Her Shoelaces

3/22/2017 11:54 AM PDT
Breaking News

0322-white-house-getty-03The latest White House fence jumper was caught as she was hanging from the top of the fence by her shoelaces.

TMZ has obtained the incident report, which details the movements of the 38-year-old woman. It says she went back and forth, staring at the White House for a long period of time before making her move Tuesday at 10:50 PM.

The Secret Service agent who was watching her lost sight for a second and the next thing he knew she had caught her shoelaces on an iron spire and dangled helplessly on the inside of the fence. Agents helped her down before arresting her to keep her from falling on her head.

She told agents she was there to speak to the president.

She had a map of the White House, although the incident report does not explain whether the map showed the interior or exterior grounds.

As we reported, Congressman Jason Chaffetz told us, based on what he knew so far, the Secret Service followed protocol.

Taraji P. Henson, Nia Long At War on 'Empire' Set

3/22/2017 11:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

0322-taraji-henson-nia-long-tmzTaraji P. Henson and Nia Long were at each other's throats on the set of "Empire" in such a big way ... producers almost had to shoot the scenes they were in together ... separately.

Multiple production sources tell TMZ, Nia was extremely rude to the people in hair, makeup and wardrobe -- something Nia's people strongly deny -- which pissed Taraji off something fierce. 

We're told it got to the point they stopped speaking to each other when they were on set. Our sources say it was next to impossible to film the scenes they did together, and that's why they had actually blocked out how to shoot those scenes separately.

Nia played a recurring role in season 3, which has wrapped. Her character was an ex of Lucious Lyon, who was in the process of getting back with Cookie.

As for whether Nia will be back for season 4, our sources say no way in hell. 

Nia's rep tells TMZ, "This story is complete nonsense. Throughout her long, established career, Nia has been nothing but a consummate professional treating all members of productions with respect."

The rep goes on, "This is nothing but another complete fabrication about a series that has been plagued by constant rumors of drama and misconduct."
