    North Carolina Airport Insanely Long Lines ... Passengers Fuming Over Missed Flights

    It looks like business as usual at one airport in North Carolina ... where passengers are PISSED, and it has nothing to do with no one social distancing.

    This is the scene right now at Charlotte Douglas International Airport in North Carolina on Memorial Day, where long lines have wrapped around the lobby just to get through TSA. A reporter there says the travelers are getting furious over missed flights.

    Based on the video, you wouldn't think the country's in the middle of a pandemic right now. If ya look closely, you can see it's about a 50-50 split on people wearing masks or not.

    Most of the major airlines have said they will attempt social distancing by underbooking flights -- but doesn't seem like that's gonna be possible tonight in Charlotte.

    You'll recall a UCSF scientist snapped a pic earlier this month showing his United Airlines flight packed like sardines ... a situation that made many customers uneasy.

    Every row was packed to capacity ... including the middle seats.

    Point is ... if ya think they're restless in Charlotte now, it could be getting a lot hairier once they actually get onto a flight.

    We'll see if cooler heads prevail.

    Joe Exotic's Hubby Boatload 'O Fun with Bryce from 'Too Hot to Handle!!!'

    Exclusive Details
    NOT TOO HOT TO HANDLE

    Joe Exotic's husband and Bryce from "Too Hot to Handle" got together for one helluva soirée.

    Joe's husband, Dillon Passage, partied with Bryce on Bryce's boat Sunday in Marina del Rey, where witnesses tell us they hung out with Bryce's crew to celebrate his 30th birthday. Huge milestone, for sure. We're told Bryce had his boat parked and had only 15 people at a time every 2 hours. The rest of the partygoers hung out on the dock and beach area.

    The obvious question ... how'd Bryce and Dillon even meet? We're told after "Too Hot to Handle" streamed on Netflix, Dillon hit up Bryce to show some love and say he really enjoyed the series. We're told they stayed in touch, and when Bryce planned his birthday party he invited Dillon.

    And, how's this for a birthday wish ... we're told Dillon and Bryce each downed a couple of shots and Bryce wished for Joe to be freed from prison. The party -- which included several other "Too Hot to Handle" cast members, including Harry and Matthew -- went pretty late. Actually, pretty early. We're told it lasted till about 5 AM.

    A great time was had by all.

    Cardi B Baby's Got Tat!!!

    Cardi B's body now plays host to a massive new art installation ... because the ink has just dried on her insanely colorful back tattoo.

    Cardi showed off her latest handiwork, which she says took months to complete, with a special shoutout to the tattoo artist. The piece traverses Cardi's entire backside, from the top of her back down to the middle of her thigh. It's festooned with flowers, butterflies and even a hummingbird.

    FRESH NEW INK

    The new tattoo isn't Cardi's first -- she already had some serious ink on her other leg -- but her latest, thanks to the steady hand of Jamie Schene, is a spectacle if not spectacular.

    Cardi isn't the first to engage in a rear-view coverup. Ben Affleck revealed an insane back piece a while ago. Fans thought he was clowning, but turns out it was the real deal.

    Now that we think about it ... what a perfect time to do something massively dramatic -- while no one can see. Then, when we actually can re-emerge back into society ... voila!!! We wait eagerly for the shock and awe of it all!!!

    Boater Rescue A Cooler Saved Our Lives!!!

    Two men may have some ice-cold drinks to thank for their survival, because they were rescued in the deep blue ocean after clinging to a styrofoam cooler.

    It went down in the Gulf of Mexico. Adam Vetter says he was heading to shore in his boat at around 6:30 PM when he spotted 2 men in the ocean, clinging to the cooler. They were spotted 12 miles offshore from Hudson Beach, Florida.

    Adam spotted a sinking boat, and then -- in the distance -- spotted the 2 men in the water, clinging for life and waving their hands wildly in the air.

    The 2 men say they were holding on for dear life for nearly 4 hours. Adam and his crew pulled the 2 men up on their boat to safety.

    This could have gone much worse. Adam and crew didn't spot the boat when it was in front of them ... they were 1 1/2 to 2 miles away from the sinking boat and the 2 men, but someone saw something and the 2 men are alive as a result. The fact the cooler was white helped, because it stood out in the water.

    Good job.

    Shad Gaspard Moving Memorial at Venice Beach

    Exclusive

    Former WWE star Shad Gaspard was honored Friday during a sunset memorial at the site where he tragically died.

    Shad's wife, Siliana, invited lots of friends and family, along with some of his many fans, to pay homage where the beloved star drowned last weekend, after heroically directing lifeguards to help his 10-year-old son out of the churning waters of Venice Beach. Shad's body was found 3 days later.

    Shad was universally liked ... a genuinely good man who died a hero.

    RIP

    Gavin Newsom Californians Urge Gov. ... Put Volleyball Nets Back On Beach!!!

    Breaking News

    California beach junkies are PISSED volleyball nets still haven't been returned to beaches ... and now, they're begging Gov. Gavin Newsom to put the sport back on the sand ASAP.

    An online petition is making its way through CA social media communities this week ... with more than 3,000 people already on board to try to get government officials to put back the nets.

    As we previously reported, most Calif. counties -- including Los Angeles -- took down the courts back in March to help slow the spread of coronavirus.

    But, just a few days ago, Newsom and California mayors announced some sports activities could resume ... putting golf and tennis back on the acceptable list.

    In the petition, Californians argue volleyball should be included as well ... saying, "Similar to tennis, outdoor volleyball is a non-contact sport and can be played with doubles teams."

    The petition continued, "This means there are only two people on each side of the net with plenty of space to spread out. The only shared equipment between players is the ball."

    It's unclear if and when Newsom will relent to putting the nets back ... but the governor did say on Monday he's targeting a June 1 return for pro sports in the state.

    So, if it's safe enough for LeBron at Staples ... is it safe enough for the beach bums in Santa Monica?!?!

    Stay tuned ...

    Ex-WWE Star Shad Gaspard Family 'Praying for Safe Return' ... Please Stay Positive

    Exclusive

    10:46 AM PT -- Shad's family has issued a statement saying they are still "hoping and praying for his safe return."

    "We would like to express our gratitude to the first responders who rescued Aryeh and to the lifeguards, coastguard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad," the Gaspard family said through a rep.

    "Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return."

    "As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad."

    8:32 AM PT -- 5/19 -- The search to find Shad Gaspard has been suspended, the U.S. Coast Guard tells us.

    We know there was at least one boat still searching for Gaspard on Tuesday morning ... but it's become clear the chances of finding the ex-WWE star are fading fast.

    We're told the case will not be closed until officials find the missing person -- but for now, the efforts have been drastically scaled back.

    Officials are desperately searching for ex-WWE superstar Shad Gaspard -- after he went missing during a swim at Venice Beach on Sunday with his 10-year-old son.

    Gaspard and his son were among a group of swimmers caught in a strong rip current around 4 PM -- with lifeguards racing into the water to pull everyone out.

    Gaspard's son was rescued -- but the 39-year-old pro wrestler has not been located.

    One official working with the L.A. Fire Dept. told media they believe the 39-year-old "did submerge."

    Divers were sent to scour the area. Helicopters were searching from above.

    One witness at the scene tells us ... when lifeguards raced into the ocean, Gaspard directed rescuers to help his son first, which they did.

    During the rescue, we're told another big wave crashed down on Gaspard -- and that's the last time he was seen.

    We're told the photo of Shad officials are using in the search (included in this post) was taken earlier Sunday, before the incident.

    Shad was at the beach that day with his wife and their 10-year-old son.

    Gaspard was a big star with WWE back in the day -- making up one half of the tag team Cryme Time with his partner, JTG.

    Outside of pro wrestling, Gaspard made headlines in 2016 when he stopped an armed robbery in Florida.

    In fact, Shad came on the "TMZ Sports" TV show to talk about it and couldn't have been a nicer guy.

    Ex-WWE Star Shad Gaspard Posted Touching Video w/ His Son ... Days Before Tragic Beach Incident

    BEACH BONDING

    This is heartbreaking -- Shad Gaspard was hanging at the beach with his son and shared how blessed he felt about life ... just days before the former WWE star went missing during a swim with his kid.

    Gaspard posted a few photos of his 10-year-old boy -- along with a clip of them walking together by the ocean -- on May 6, and wrote ... "Love the life I built for my self and my family."

    It's pretty clear ... Shad and his son enjoy spending some quality time together at the beach.

    Sadly, as TMZ Sports first reported ... Gaspard went missing Sunday afternoon after he and his boy were among a group of swimmers who got caught in a strong rip current at Venice Beach in L.A.

    Lifeguards were able to rescue the boy after Shad directed them to his son first, but the 39-year-old ex-pro wrestler reportedly submerged after a wave crashed on him ... and hasn't been seen since.

    Officials are still scouring the area looking for Gaspard, and shared a photo of him taken earlier in the day in hopes he will be found.

    Johnny Manziel Slips, Falls In Failed Cliff Dive ... Luckily Not Hurt!!!

    Breaking News
    CLOSE CALL

    Johnny Manziel is a LUCKY man -- because he slipped and fell while trying to dive off a cliff ... and fortunately, escaped injury.

    The ex-NFL quarterback hit the famous cliffs at Lake Pleasant near Phoenix, Arizona recently and tried to bust out a backflip into the water below.

    But, as the 27-year-old tried to launch himself off the rock, he lost his footing ... and barely managed to use his left foot to propel himself far enough away from the cliff, that he avoided disaster.

    He's fine ... but man, THAT WAS TOO CLOSE, BRO!!

    Manziel joked about the "flawless execution" in a social media post -- but some of his friends had real concern for JM.

    "Got spooky for a second," Victor Cruz wrote.

    NFL wideout Cayleb Jones wrote, "Johnny chill bro."

    Look, whether you're trying to stay away from the 'Rona ... or trying to get an adrenaline rush -- just be careful out there!!

    College Admission Scandal Star Witness Back to His Speedo Ways 100% Chill as Trial Looms

    Exclusive
    OUT ON THE WATER
    TMZ.com

    Rick Singer is the key witness against Lori Loughlin and other parents of accused of bribing universities -- but instead of shaking in his boots ... he's paddling in his Speedo.

    The college admission scandal mastermind -- who copped a sweet deal early on -- was spotted over the weekend in Newport Beach -- where he was, once again, paddling his heart in nothing but a skimpy bathing suit ... something he does pretty often out there.

    It's funny, 'cause you'd think the feds might want to keep their cash cow, so to speak, under close observation or away from the public eye ... ya know, in case someone starts to feel squirrely and tries something nuts ahead of what appears to be a forthcoming jury trial.

    This ain't ''The Godfather'' though -- RIP Frank Pentangeli, BTW. It's just good old-fashioned white-collar crime (allegedly), and it doesn't seem federal prosecutors, or Rick for that matter, have a care in the world about him making it to the witness stand safe and sound.

    Meanwhile, Lori Loughlin just had her bid to have the charges against her and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, dismissed shut down by a judge. She and her team claimed the feds tried coercing Singer into lying and telling them what they wanted to hear about his clients, but the court wasn't buying it and said it was mostly much ado about nothing.

    Rick doesn't seem to care about all that noise these days -- he's got Mother Nature in his ear.

    Naples, FL Beaches Closed Again in Record Time ... But Airplanes Just as Packed

    The Mayor of Naples is a helluva lot better at closing beaches when she sees a problem than the mayor in "Jaws" was -- people were flocking to the sand again ... and she shut it all down in less than 24 hours.

    The Florida city put an emergency order into effect very early Sunday morning -- right at 12:01 AM -- decreeing all beaches and beach amenities be off-limits immediately after photos surfaced the day before showing that their citizenry wasn't obeying new guidelines.

    A little context ... Naples' beaches shut down en masse back on March 23, and on April 30 ... the city reopened them with limitations in place that people were supposed to follow to stay safe -- such as proper social distancing, no crowds larger than 10 people, etc.

    Obviously, those rules went right out the window in the week and change that they welcomed back beachgoers. Now, the City Council's gonna meet this week to discuss further steps -- but at the moment, it's no waves and sand for anybody. Periodt!!!

    Ironically enough ... while social distancing continues to be an issue on the ground by choice, it's also a huge problem in the air too -- only with a twist, by force this time.

    Check out this photo of a United Airlines flight that a UCSF scientist captured and posted online, showing just about every row packed to capacity -- including middle seats -- which flies in the face of United's own updated policy on booking guests in light of coronavirus.

    The company said it'd leave middle seats empty and attempt to limit the number of passengers they let on any of their flights. Clearly, those rules were also DOA.

    Shark Attack Surfer Killed Beach Closed

    Breaking News

    A California beach has been abruptly closed, but not because of coronavirus ... it's because a surfer was killed by a shark.

    A 26-year-old man was surfing in the Santa Cruz area Saturday, around Monterey Bay, when the attack occurred. As for what type of shark ... so far, authorities don't know, saying it was an "unknown shark species."

    The surfer was pronounced dead on the scene.

    Authorities immediately closed a 1-mile stretch of beach for at least 5 days. They will presumably monitor shark activity in the area before reopening. Interestingly, officials are not banning water sports -- like jet skiing or kayaking -- but they are "highly discouraged."

    A photog for KRON-TV in the Bay Area says he's been seeing lots of great whites swimming near shore. On the day of the attack, he says he spotted 15 great whites while boating.

    There's a reality here, folks. Sharks are everywhere in the ocean, and the risk of being attacked is extremely low. Nevertheless, it happens, but it has never deterred surfers, even in areas with high concentrations of sharks.
