'Little People, Big World' Divorce We Even Split The Family Photo Album

5/12/2016 6:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0511-amy-matt-roloff-tlc"Little People, Big World" stars Amy and Matt Roloff's divorce was a VERY even split ... right down to the family pics they collected over 27 years of marriage.

The Roloffs' divorce was finalized in late April. Neither is getting spousal support and their 4 kids are all grown -- so no issue with child support.

Each gets to keep half a stake in their Oregon family farm and the pumpkin salsa company -- which are featured on the show.

There's a special section in the docs about family photos ... it's a 50/50 split and they have to make copies of all the originals and share 'em with one another. Matt also made off with his 2 classic VW Bugs. 

The new season of 'LPBW' premiered Tuesday night, and so far it's been the most civil onscreen breakup ... we'll see if it continues that way.

'Little Women: LA' Star Rushed to Hospital Risk of Premature Birth

4/27/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0426-briana-renee-matt-erickson-LIFETIME-TMZ-01Expectant "Little Women: LA" star Briana Renee is in the danger zone after going into labor only 6 months into her pregnancy ... TMZ has learned.

Briana's husband, Matt Ericson, rushed her to a hospital Monday night in Murrieta, CA after she experienced severe pains that had her worried about the baby. It turns out those pains were contractions, and now doctors are closely monitoring Briana.

We're told there's serious concern because premature births are typically far more risky for little people. Doctors have Briana on round-the-clock bed rest, and meds to slow the contractions because it's just too soon.  

The show is currently shooting, but we're told production is on hold ... since cameras are banned at the hospital.

Exclusive Details

Four of the "Little Women: Atlanta" cast members got into a knock-down, drag-out fight that ended with one of them -- the pregnant one -- ending up in the hospital. 

In an episode airing Wednesday ... Emily and her friend Bri got into it with twins Amanda and Andrea Salinas. The twins just started waiting tables at the same club where Emily and Bri work as dancers -- and as everyone knows ... waitresses and dancers don't mix. 

Watch, Emily (with cornrows and a "Boss" tee) is the one with child ... but she didn't hesitate to throw down. We're told she went to a hospital for a checkup after the fight.

She and her fetus are fine, but some hair was definitely damaged!

'Little Women: LA' Gets a Little Justice in 'The People's Court'

2/10/2016 3:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Little Women: LA" star Christy McGinity learned rolling through an intersection -- even just a little -- can prove costly.

Christy appeared before Judge Marilyn Milian Monday for a taping of "The People's Court."  She was being sued by a woman who claimed Christy slammed into her Mercedes at a L.A. intersection.

Christy climbed a step ladder to give the judge a blow-by-blow, but in the end, it was her admission she rolled through a red light to make a right that sunk her.

It's ironic ... Christy was in the car with her 16-year-old daughter, whom she was teaching how to drive.

Sources close to the reality stars tell us Ashley just found out she's pregnant with PT's baby and both are very excited.  

Ashley and PT's off-and-on romance has been covered on the show, but we're told they want to keep the pregnancy off camera ... so no diaper drama story lines, for now. 

Even though their relationship was shaky for the last 8 months, our sources say they're good now. Obviously, they were VERY good on at least one occasion.

0605-DIVORCE_DOCS_LAUNCH-amy-roloff-matt-roloff-divorce-TMZ-02Divorce is no small matter ... even for reality TV stars Amy and Matt Roloff, who are pulling the plug on their 27 year marriage.

Amy and Matt are listed as co-petitioners in the docs -- so, neither one's playing the heavy in this split.

Little People of America We Are PEOPLE ... Not Bowling Balls

8/9/2012 3:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Little people are NOT objects to be greased up and hurled down a bowling lane for the sick enjoyment of an audience -- so says the Little People of America, which tells TMZ, Zac Brown's "midget bowling" is a "direct insult" to little people everywhere. 

You'll recall ... TMZ posted footage of country singer Zac Brown going "midget bowling" at a motorcycle rally in South Dakota last weekend -- sliding a little person named Short Sleeve Sampson down a greasy ramp ... and into bowling pins (he got a strike).

But a rep for Little People of America -- the country's biggest non-profit for people with dwarfism -- tells TMZ, "Little People of America does not endorse any activity in which a person of short stature is used as an object rather than regarded as a competitor, in a 'sporting event.'"

The rep adds, "We believe that such practices are a direct insult to the equality of people with dwarfism, grounded in a respect for basic human dignity."

But tell that to Short Sleeve Sampson -- he called in to TMZ Live earlier this week ... insisting there's NOTHING wrong with a little "midget bowling" every now and then.
