Andy Cohen will be earning his one-day sober chip this week because TMZ has learned he will not partake in alcohol during Thursday night's "Watch What Happens Live" ... as a show of support to his guest ... Lindsay Lohan.
For those non-"WWHL" fans ... the show always features a bartender, and cocktails are served throughout the show to both the guests and the audience ... and, of course, to Andy.
But according to our sources, Andy has vowed to not dabble in the libations for the evening, so Lindsay isn't tempted. It's unclear if there will be an open bar for everyone else, or if it will be a teetotalling night for all.
Maybe he'll intro himself. Hi, my name is Andy, and ...

So much for reality television ... the 21-year-old star of "Southern Charm" who had a pregnancy scare on the show -- but said her test came back negative -- just had a baby.
Sources close to the show tell us Kathryn Dennis gave birth to a healthy baby girl 2 weeks ago -- the very day the pregnancy-scare episode aired on Bravo. And the baby daddy is her mega-rich 50-year-old co-star Thomas Ravenel.
The hookup between Kathryn and Ravenel was one of the big storylines on the show ... but at the time, pregnancy tests showed Kathryn was NOT pregnant.
But after filming ended, we're told Kathryn and Ravenel began shacking up in Palm Beach, FL -- where they now live as a couple -- and Kathryn got pregnant for real.
Fun Fact: Ravenel is a former treasurer of South Carolina who was was forced to resign and served 8 months in prison ... after he was convicted in 2007 of cocaine distribution.
Justin & Selena

Even Justin Bieber's hideous hat choices can't keep Selena Gomez away -- the two got up close and personal at Coachella this weekend, despite the fact that Bieber was literally dressed like a newborn baby at the beach.
Wearing sunglasses and a bonnet, Bieber stood beside Gomez during Jhene Aiko's set on Sunday -- and we're told they were hanging together all day. At one point, we're told Selena was sitting on Justin's lap.
It's definitely Justin in the photo too -- earlier in the day, he was wearing the exact same humiliating outfit onstage with Chance the Rapper.
We're calling it "90s street thug beach baby" chic.

Right Before the Car Exploded!
4/15/2014 10:24 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Are You the One?" star Chris Tolleson was the one ... who along with a few friends, rescued a guy from a burning car just minutes before it burst into flames.
Tolleson tells TMZ he was in a car with a group of friends in Virginia Beach a few weeks back when they drove up to an accident scene and discovered a car that had just crashed into a tree ... and was ON FIRE.
Tolleson says he and his friends ran out of their car and found a guy unconscious in the passenger seat (there was no driver to be found) but the door was blocked by a tree. He says he and his friends pulled the tree back enough so they could open the door and dragged the guy out of the car.
After Tolleson says they dragged him 50 feet or so, he says they could hear the car starting to crackle, so they dragged him another 50 feet. Tolleson says the car blew up just a few minutes later.
Tolleson says his other two friends suffered first degree burns from the fire, while he got cut up from helping to remove the tree.
The victim suffered serious injuries. No word on his progress.

B.B. King is totally embarrassed by his subpar performance in St. Louis recently -- but his rep tells TMZ, he has a good excuse for sucking ... the blues legend was off his meds.
King's April 4th performance at the Peabody Opera House was meandering and stilted, he chatted with the audience more than he sang, people heckled him, and some even walked out. It was bad.
But a rep for B.B. -- who's 88 years old by the way -- tells us, "Mr. King suffers from diabetes -- and he mistakenly missed a dose of his prescribed medication on the show day."
In addition to his high blood sugar problem, King's rep says the singer was exhausted from a 1,600 mile bus trip from Vegas -- adding, "Simply put, it was a bad night for one of America's living blues legends -- and Mr. King apologizes and humbly asks for the understanding of his fans."
Now here's one of his best performances.

Johnny to Victor
There Will Be No Mutual Masturbation
From Here on Out!
4/15/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Johnny Weir wrote a 5-page post-nup which is part of his newfangled reconciliation package with Victor Voronov -- and Johnny makes it clear mutual masturbation will NOT be tolerated.
TMZ broke the story ... Johnny and Victor agreed over the weekend to call off their divorce, but Victor wanted Johnny to sign a document apologizing for trashing Victor in the media and promising to keep Johnny's mom out of their relationship.
So Johnny fired back with a document of his own, which, among other things, defines the type of cheating that will not be tolerated. The document -- obtained by TMZ -- lists the following:
-- sex outside the marriage
-- oral sex outside the marriage
-- kissing or making out
-- aggressive flirting
-- mutual masturbation
-- social media/grindr/dating
And it gets better. According to the document, if either one has a situation where they're "in close range or contact with someone from our past or someone to be part of the future" ... the other can veto the contact. Johnny specifically gives an example of a figure skater he dated.
The document also requires joint STD tests every 6 months with the results being read with both in the room.
And there's a section about splitting assets if they ultimately get divorced: "Should a gift be given, i.e., the Cartier Roadster (R.I.P.), the gift belongs to you." Someone broke the watch!
And finally ... there's a section titled "Ultimatums." Johnny lists examples of Victor's ultimatums, including, "If I give you one more day to get your bank records to me, then I want to have a free f*** of anyone I want."

A Lana Del Rey film shoot turned into a bloody brawl ... according to a photog who claims he was attacked by 3 thugs with a box cutter ... to stop him from taking pics of LDR ... and he's gonna sue.
Karl Larsen -- a well-known concert photographer who shoots for Rolling Stone magazine -- claims in a lawsuit that will be filed later this week ... he happened on the L.A. River last June and saw Del Rey shooting her "Tropico" video ... and was confronted by 3 dudes from the production company.
Larsen says the men ordered him to stop shooting ... when Larsen insisted he was within his rights ... one guy threatened to smash his $14K camera gear and another tried to rip it from his hand.
Larsen claims one of the men whipped out a box cutter razor and slashed his finger -- which required stitches -- while another guy grabbed his camera and erased the memory card.
Larsen's suit against the production company, Black Hand Cinema, seeks $1 MIL minimum -- claiming the company has a habit of intimidating photographers.
We've reached out to reps for Lana and the production company ... so far, no word back.
