Kendra Wilkinson Divorce from Hank Baskett Finalized ... Finally!!!

2/21/2019 3:24 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kendra Wilkinson is officially back on the market ... 'cause the former playmate just finalized her divorce with ex-NFL star Hank Baskett.

Kendra and Hank filed docs in January signifying their marriage is dunzo ... and this time they got it right. According to the docs ... they will share joint custody of their 2 kids -- 9-year-old Hank IV and 4-year-old Alijah. They're also splitting most of their property right down the middle.

As we reported, the ex-couple had two previous divorce settlements rejected by the court after making clerical errors in their filings.

Kendra and Hank got hitched back in 2009 at the Playboy Mansion ... with the late Hugh Hefner and her other 'Girls Next Door' castmates in attendance. 

TMZ broke the story ... Kendra filed for divorce back in April, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. 

Right before the divorce filing, Kendra posted an emotional video of herself crying, confirming a split from Hank ... and saying she was frightened for the next step.

That step is finally here. 

Hugh Hefner's Widow Sells Home He Left Her ... For $5 Million

1/24/2019 7:29 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Crystal Harris just unloaded the home Hugh Hefner left her for $5 million.

Hefner bought the 4 bedroom pad in the Hollywood Hills back in 2013. The backstory is interesting. Hef married Crystal in 2012, and the next year he wanted to make sure she had a roof over her head when he died. You'd think the Playboy Mansion would have been enough, but the fact is Hef didn't own it ... it was owned by Playboy Enterprises, and he was worried it might be sold and his wife would be displaced.

So, in 2013, he bought the house which was held in trust for the 2 of them. When he died in September 2017, she became the sole owner.  

As for how much the house appreciated in value ... it didn't. Crystal listed it for $7.2 mil, but it didn't sell. She just sealed the deal on the 5,900 square foot home for $5 mil -- the price for which it was purchased. 

L.A. realtors Jason Oppenheim and Christine Quinn represented the buyer. 

Hugh died peacefully at the Playboy Mansion in September 2017 at age 91, surrounded by loved ones. The mogul's health had been deteriorating for years, and was barely seen in public in the months before his death.

EXCLUSIVE

Vendela Lindblom's officially shaken the stigma of women with shaved heads made infamous by Britney Spears more than a decade ago ... by making history as the first Playboy Playmate with the hot hairstyle.

We got the Swedish-born model outside Amoeba Records in Hollywood and asked how she managed to land in the pages of the iconic magazine ... she says a lot of girl power's to thank.

Vendela's not really sure why it took so long for a buzz cut Playmate, but she says the time is right now and she's happy to be the first.

She also reveals who she'd vote for as the hottest woman out there with a buzz cut ... no arguments from us.

As for the comparisons to Britney circa 2007 ... Lindblom's a good sport. But, she wants to make it very clear her look is completely by choice ... no mental breakdowns led to the 'do.

Vendela will be featured in the latest Playboy issue as its January 2019 Playmate of the Month ... get it while it's hot.

Playboy.com Sued Can't You See?!? Your Site's Not Blind Friendly!!!

11/28/2018 4:48 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

The blind are leading the blind ... right into a class action lawsuit against Playboy.com for operating a website that can't be enjoyed by the visually impaired.

Donald Nixon just filed the suit, claiming Playboy.com is violating the Americans with Disabilities Act, because its websites -- Playboy.com and Playboyshop.com -- are not compatible with his screen-reading software.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Nixon says he's legally blind and visually impaired people like him, "cannot fully and equally use or enjoy the facilities, products, and services." He doesn't spell it out, but we're sure Donald's just there for the articles.

He's suing to force the media outlet to make its websites accessible for the blind ... as well as unspecified damages. We've reached out to Playboy.com ... so far, no word back.

BTW ... we've seen this before. Kylie's website was hit with a very similar suit

California Wildfires Hundreds of Animals Saved ... In Massive Rescue Effort

11/12/2018 1:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Hundreds of scared animals were helplessly fending for themselves in the midst of the raging California wildfires, that is until an army of humans descended on the ravaged areas to save them.

Check out the video ... tortoises, sheep, a llama, a rabbit, a mini-horse, chickens and an alpaca are all beneficiaries of the rescue effort.

There were scores of horses that had to be abandoned because their owners almost had to immediately evacuate. Many of the horses were tagged and let free, with the hope they would find their way to safety and then reunite with their owners.

It was treacherous work trying to save the animals ... many of which were scared and skittish.

A number of groups, including the Animal Hope and Wellness foundation had volunteers out and about trying to save the helpless creatures.

Former Playboy Playmate Jayde Nicole was among the cadre of volunteers, and she describes the difficulties of the rescue effort. 

Playboy Model Aubrey Evans Blowin' Gaskets ... In a Thong, On Vintage Car

11/7/2018 7:55 AM PST

Playboy model Aubrey Evans introduced her fantastic physique to an exquisite antique -- and we're pretty sure she'd make the classic car overheat.

Aubrey was rocking a black lace bra and heels this week for a photo shoot in Malibu. Plenty to be jealous of here -- the sweet, sweet ride ... Aubrey herself ... or the amazing beach and sunshine. Gotta love Novembers in SoCal, baby!  

The next time you hear someone whining about gas guzzling cars, remember these pics. Sorry, but hot chicks leaning on a Nissan Leaf just ain't the same. Thank you, Henry Ford ... and thank you, Aubrey.

Mostly Aubrey.

Model Khloe Terae Little Black Jacket Can't Cover Big Ol' Booty

10/3/2018 7:17 AM PDT

Khloe Terae is a long way from her home in the Great White North, but she's still dressing for cooler temps even at the beach in Cali ... well, half of her is anyway.

International Playboy's 2014 Playmate of the Year -- who's from Canada, but earned her title in South Africa -- hit up a beach in Malibu, and was clearly feeling chilly up top. Not so much down low, but she's got a lotta cushion. We get it.

Khloe went topless under her leather coat at first, but later slipped into a more traditional bikini.

No doubt aboot it ... Khloe's making all the right wardrobe moves.

Holly Madison is about to be on the market ... her husband, Pasquale Rotella, has filed for divorce from the former Playboy model.

Holly and Pasquale got hitched in 2013, and they have 2 kids together, daughter Rainbow Aurora and son Forest. The couple decided to end their union after their romance was said to have fizzled out.

According to the divorce docs -- obtained by TMZ -- Pasquale filed on August 31 in Vegas.

Rotella posted a statement Tuesday, saying, "It is with love in our hearts and a deep respect for one another that Holly and I have amicably made the decision to separate. First and foremost, we are forever partners and parents to two beautiful children, and are fully committed to raising them in an environment filled with love and positivity." 

Holly famously dated Hugh Hefner and was one of the stars of the TV show, "The Girls Next Door."

Holly and Pasquale got married at Disneyland ... but their marriage won't have a storybook ending. 

Playboy Mansion Hosting Tarantino's 'Once Upon a Time' Party After Next Year's Premiere

9/14/2018 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Quentin Tarantino will host his "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" premiere party at the Playboy Mansion -- this after recently filming some scenes there ... TMZ has learned.

QT and co. are going to have their after-party at Hugh Hefner's romping grounds following the premiere of his highly anticipated flick -- which chronicles the Manson murders. While a date for the party hasn't been set quite yet, we're told it has gotten the green light for whenever the film drops ... which, for now, is slated for summer 2019.

Tarantino and his crew were seen at the Playboy Mansion last week, where they filmed for 3 days. The current owner of the house, Daren Metropoulos, says ... "After Quentin reached out to me and I spent some time understanding his vision for the film, I knew there was a special opportunity to collaborate together and feature the mansion in this thrilling project."

He added ... "The timing was excellent as the property has already begun to transform back to its original grandeur and has never looked more impressive."

Tarantino's got history with the Playboy Mansion. He hosted his "Kill Bill: Vol. 1" video release party there in 2004. Looks like he's circling back with the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Brad Pitt, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino and other big stars that've been cast.

The premiere party appears to be one of the first major A-list events to be held at the mansion since Hugh Hefner's death late last year and since Daren bought the place for $100 million about a year prior. Most recently, he was cleared to undergo major repairs ahead of a potential historic monument designation. 

The jury's still out on whether the mansion will get that status. 

Ben Affleck Dinner Date with Playboy Model ... Where's Lindsay???

8/17/2018 10:20 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Ben Affleck's latest sighting shows all the signs of a bachelor lifestyle, which has us wondering ... has he broken up with GF Lindsay Shookus?

Ben was spotted Thursday night leaving Nobu Malibu rocking a very casual single-guy look -- loose jeans, jacket, t-shirt with a cig in hand -- after having dinner with a very hot blonde who's not Lindsay.

The chick is Playboy's Miss May 2018, Shauna Sexton.

It's interesting -- Affleck celebrated his bday Wednesday with his kids, and had a dinner date with Shauna last night ... but no sign of any celebrating with Shookus.

Ben and Lindsay haven't been photographed together in nearly a month. And, what's also interesting ... there was a moving van in front of Ben's home on August 9. We don't know if someone was moving in or moving out of his $19 million Pacific Palisades mansion.

We reached out to the "Justice League" star to see if perhaps Batman went through a pre-birthday breakup ... so far, no word back. 

Playmate Amy Lee Summers Bustin' Out of Her Bikini ... No, For Reals

5/4/2018 10:31 AM PDT

New Zealand model and Playboy Playmate Amy Lee Summers brought new meaning to the ol' adage, "1 if by land, 2 if by sea," when she spilled out of her top in the SoCal surf.

Amy Lee was frolicking through Malibu Thursday for a photo shoot when she suffered the nip slip, but recovered like a pro. She had more luck securing her bikini bottoms -- they stayed on. Barely.

Even while she was on dry land, she found a way to end up all wet.

Check out the gallery ... summer's definitely coming.

Model Khloe Terae Bikini Car Wash ... Ready to Service!

5/2/2018 7:59 AM PDT

Jeep Wranglers don't have your standard trunk, but that didn't stop Playboy model Khloe Terae from putting hers all over one ... and in nothing but a red hot string bikini!

Khloe wiped down the custom job -- it's a Jeep Wrangler JK -- for a photo shoot at DCD Customs in SoCal ... and there's a lot more to these pics than just her fat tires.

The last Wrangler JK rolled off the assembly line in Ohio last week, so there's extra value in this 4X4 ... and not just because Khloe, who's a a big fan of water, gave it a rub down.

And that's your T&A -- tires and ass -- bonus info. Enjoy!

Karen McDougal Settles National Enquirer Suit ... Free to Cash in on Trump!!!

4/18/2018 3:05 PM PDT
Breaking News

Ex-Playmate Karen McDougal is clear to spill the beans about her alleged affair with Donald Trump ... and, perhaps most importantly to her, make a ton o' money off it.

McDougal had sued the National Enquirer's parent company, American Media, over a non-disclosure agreement she signed with them in 2016. She got $150k and some promotional perks, and the Enquirer got her exclusive story about the 2006 affair with Trump. She sued to get out of the deal.

Well, they reached a settlement ... according to the New York Times, and is now allowed to talk all she wants about her Trump relationship. You'll recall, McDougal sat down with Anderson Cooper last month for a CNN special.

So, why does the settlement matter? It's pretty clear based on the terms, which include American Media getting $75k of any future profits Karen makes off selling the Trump story.

Start the countdown to Karen's tell-all book hitting stores -- but ya gotta wonder what's left for her to reveal. The NYT says she also gets to keep her $150k fee.
