'RHOC' Star Vicki Gunvalson I Caught New Hire Stealing Big $$$ ... Cops Investigating

2/24/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-vicki-gunvalson-tmz-01Vicki Gunvalson says she caught an employee red-handed stealing thousands of dollars from her business and reported him to the police.

Sources close to the 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tell us she recently noticed huge discrepancies in the books of her insurance brokerage -- a few thousand dollars at least. We're told she did some digging, and it led to a guy who was hired just 2 months ago.

Our sources say Vicki believes the employee embezzled sales commissions to his personal account and poached clients from Vicki's son, Mike, who's a VP at the brokerage.

We're told Vicki canned the guy, and filed a police report 2 weeks ago. Law enforcement sources tell us they've opened an investigation.

Porsha Williams Kandi Took a Low Blow at Me! I'm No Bigot, But I'll Re-Apologize

2/23/2017 1:25 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0223-porsha-williams-kandi-burruss-TMZ-01Porsha Williams thinks Kandi Burruss is taking shots at her just to fire up the LGBTQ community over some ancient video, for which Porsha's already apologized.

Porsha tells TMZ she's extremely disheartened Kandi would stoop low and bring the word "hate" into the mix while referencing her church sermon from 10 years ago. She claims it was taken out of context, and stands by her former apology for the video.

Kandi told one of our photogs she thinks Porsha doesn't love herself, because she attacked the gay community in the sermon even though she's had lesbian experiences ... which came out on 'RHOA.' 

Porsha says Kandi should stop trying to make trouble ... especially because she already did a mea culpa, saying ... "I believe we are all God's children ... although some people judge others by race, gender, status, religion, or sexual orientation, we should ALL have the right to serve God."

She says she stands by those words today, no matter what Kandi thinks.

Kandi Burruss Porsha Is a Self-Hating Hypocrite On LGBTQ Issues

2/23/2017 7:18 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss isn't gonna lay down for Porsha Williams attacking her over her sexuality and, in fact, says Porsha's throwing stones from her own lesbian glass house.

Kandi was at LAX when we asked her about last week's bombshell 'RHOA' episode -- Porsha accused her of having a long-term lesbian relationship ... and she revealed Porsha had hit on her in the past.

But KB says the real crime here is the infamous video of Porsha condemning gays years ago during a church sermon. As she sees it -- Porsha's guilty of some serious hypocrisy, and she owes the LGBTQ community an apology.

Kandi Burruss I'm All For a NeNe Leakes Comeback

2/17/2017 6:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss insists she's down for the return of NeNe Leakes on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' ... even if NeNe's already cranking up the drama.

We got Kandi Thursday at LAX where she refused to clap back at NeNe. Remember, she talked some serious trash on anyone who doesn't want her back on the show.

Word is several cast members aren't thrilled about NeNe's season 10 comeback after a nearly 2-year hiatus. Kandi's clearly taking the high road -- for now -- even when it comes to choosing between NeNe and Kim Zolciak.

Bethenny Frankel Thanks, Kylie Jenner ... At Least I'm Straddling Something Tonight!

2/15/2017 7:00 AM PST

Bethenny Frankel's Valentine's Day ended with something long and hard.

Bethenny had to jump 2 fences to reach her $5 million Soho apartment Tuesday night. It was blocked by barricades which corralled a crowd trying to reach Kylie Jenner's pop-up store.

Bethenny was spotted earlier out with a mystery man, but doesn't look like he made it back to the apartment. Too bad ... she's very limber.

EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes delivered a stern message to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars bitching about her possible return to the show -- I'm the straw that stirs the drink and best get used to it.

NeNe was at Catch Monday night in WeHo and we asked her about some cast members holding a meeting to protest her possible return. Check it out ... pretty clear NeNe's confident she'll outlive anyone else talking smack.

For what it's worth ... Cynthia Bailey was partying with NeNe, and all seemed A-OK ... but unclear how they feel about Kim Zolciak.

Kim Zolciak & NeNe Rival Housewives Throw Shade ... We Don't Need More 'Stars'

2/10/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

0209-real-housewives-excluded-tmz-gettyNeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak won't get a warm welcome from their fellow 'RHOA' cast members, who think the former dynamic duo is too messy and too expensive.

Sources close to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' tell us the women are saying there's no need to bring back NeNe and Kim because all they bring is over-the-top drama just to get camera time. As one source put it, there's "no substance."

We're told there's also a financial concern -- that Kim and NeNe's bloated salaries might chew up the budget, resulting in lower raises for the current cast.

Our sources say certain housewives called production Thursday to complain about the infamous frenemies returning. We're told some of the current housewives feel dissed after working hard to keep ratings up -- which they have, and now producers want to "add bulls***."

Ironically, it sounds like all this dissent would create real drama ... with substance.

However, Sheree Whitfield told us Thursday ... she'd welcome them with open arms. You buyin' it?

0209-teresa-giudice-TMZ-01Teresa Giudice's paychecks are going to be a little fatter now, because she's completely paid up the six-figure tab that was part of her sentence for fraud charges.

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star's not completely off the hook. She's still on supervised release for about a year, plus she should consider saving some of her disposable income for the tax man.

As for Teresa's husband, Joe ... he's in the middle of a 41 month stint in the slammer.

EXCLUSIVE

0208-nene-leakes-kim-zolciak-tmz'Real Housewives' producers are ready to Make Atlanta Great Again, which means bringing back NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak ... and the infamous frenemies just might be up for it.

Sources close to the show tell us execs want the milestone 10th season to be HUGE, and since fans have been clamoring to see NeNe and Kim reunited ... they're trying to make it happen. Previous attempts to get them for a spin-off failed ... due to scheduling conflicts, but we're told that won't be an issue this time around.

We're told producers put out feelers already and there's definite interest on the part of both women. No formal offer's been made yet, but the fact Kim is doing a cameo at the end of season 9 is a good sign a deal is close.

We can see it already ... "Welcome back, Wig!"

Joanna Krupa Goes Fishing for Brandi 411 In Vagina Lawsuit

EXCLUSIVE

0127-joanna-krupa-brandi-glanville-TMZ-01Joanna Krupa's demanding to pore over Brandi Glanville's financial docs ... to figure out how much she'll take from Brandi in the "smelly" vagina defamation lawsuit.

A judge gave Joanna the green light to go for punitive damages in the case, and that means she and her lawyers have to determine how much cash Brandi has. The docs will give the judge a clearer picture of how to punish Brandi if she loses the suit.

In the docs, Joanna requests Brandi's balance sheets, bank accounts and tax returns, plus any gifts valued at over $1k. This move comes on the heels of a judge ordering Joanna to hand over her gynecological records to help prove or disprove the smell at the heart of this case.

Joanna's lawyer, Raymond J. Rafool, tells TMZ ... they want to punish Brandi for her "vile" statement.

You'll recall, Joanna sued Brandi 2 years ago for making the "smelly" comment on 'Watch What Happens Live.'

Joanna's gotta be determined to win this lawsuit if she's willing to air her vaginal records in open court.

Teresa & Joe Giudice Old Crib Crushed

EXCLUSIVE

0120-teresa-guidice-jersey-house-torn-down-TMZ-01Teresa and Joe Giudice's former home is officially history ... actually it's really just dust now.

The pad that was once featured on 'RHNJ' has been demolished, just as the new owners promised it would be. It came down Friday and the next step is to sell the lot, we're told.

As we first told you, the new owners -- who want to remain anonymous -- made out when the Giudices went belly-up ... snatching up the pad in August for $127k.

Joe and Teresa bought it for $347k in 2005 but lost it to foreclosure during all their legal problems.

Buh-bye to the bad juju?
