Teresa Giudice 'Prostitution Whore' Is My Friend Again ... Namaste

10/20/2016 3:23 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1020-teresa-giudice-instagram-01Teresa Giudice and the woman she called a "prostitution whore" on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' are back in the friend zone ... and they brought their yoga mats with them. 

Sources close to Teresa and Danielle Staub tell us ... the former foes connected for the first time since Danielle left the show in 2010 by taking a yoga class together. Teresa reached out to Danielle after she heard she was tweeting out support for her during her family and legal problems.

We're told Teresa fell in love with yoga -- something Danielle has done for a long time -- while she was in prison ... so it was the perfect idea for their reunion. 

It seems like the friend date was legit too, because 'RHONJ' isn't filming right now ... which probably made things even more peaceful.

10/17/2016 12:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1016-Joshua-Waring-mug-shotFormer 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Lauri Peterson left the show years ago to help her troubled son ... but now he's in more trouble with a man he allegedly shot.

The man claims ... at 2:30 AM on June 20, Joshua Waring drove up to the sober living home they were staying at and started honking his horn. Residents came outside and told him to leave, which he did -- but then u-turned, came back and started firing shots at the crowd. 

One of those bullets reportedly struck the 35-year-old man in the lower torso. Waring was arrested for the shooting hours later after a police chase and is still behind bars ... facing attempted murder charges.

The shooting victim wants Waring to pay up for his medical bills and all the pain and suffering he's caused him.

'RHONY' Star Jules Wainstein Ex Misses Payments ... May Cost Him Even More

10/14/2016 1:36 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012_Michael_wainstein_jules_Instagram_gettyJules Wainstein has a problem with her ex -- she claims he's not bucking up the support the court ordered him to pay her.

A source close to the situation tells TMZ, the 'Real Housewives of NY' star has filed docs calling out her estranged husband, Michael, for not ponying up the $10,000 per month he was ordered to start paying last month. We're also told he hasn't paid their children's tuition or sent a dime for utilities.

Now, Jules doesn't just want the money ... she's asking the judge to find Michael in contempt, which could lead to additional fines.

Jules and Michael have had a rocky few months, starting with an argument that led to a 911 call. Michael's lawyer has claimed he doesn't have the income to make the payments, so looks like this won't be settled easily. 

We've reached out to reps for Jules and Michael, but no reply yet.

Kandi Burruss Booted Off Flight Airline Admits Screwup

9/30/2016 4:27 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kandi Burruss is getting a half-hearted apology from Hawaiian Airlines for a computer glitch that led to her whole crew getting temporarily grounded.

Kandi blasted the airline on social media, saying she, hubby Todd Tucker and 2 friends had been booted off their Honolulu to Maui flight for no good reason. But Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle tells TMZ ... Kandi and co. were not kicked off, and the unfortunate episode was partially their fault.

Croyle says shortly after Kandi and Todd boarded flight 526, the computer revealed an issue with their boarding passes ... so, an employee asked to check their boarding passes. Everything was fine, but the employee forgot to return their passes and baggage claim tickets.

As the plane was taxiing, flight attendants reassured the couple they wouldn't have a problem claiming their luggage -- but the airline says they got "irate."

Kandi says they were told to deplane because of the commotion -- while the airline says someone in Kandi's crew demanded they be let off. Either way, they all got off and boarded another flight 45 mins later.

0930_nene-leaks_tmzNeNe Leakes' son, Brentt, was trying to help his mom out on her tour but got robbed by an irate fan instead.

Brentt was hawking mom's merch Wednesday night when her "So Nasty, So Rude" comedy tour rolled through The Promontory in Chicago. Our PD sources tell us a customer was demanding a refund, and when the 17-year-old didn't fork it over ... the guy made off with a backpack containing Brentt's wallet and laptop.

We're told cops already have surveillance of the heist, but haven't made any arrests yet. Brentt wasn't hurt, and we're told he and NeNe are actually more pissed about losing his ID.

DMV lines are a bitch.

Breaking News

0926_Herman-and-Alexia-Echevarria-TMZHerman Echevarria Sr. -- ex-husband of 'RHOM' star Alexia Echevarria -- was found dead in a Miami hotel room Monday morning.

The businessman didn't show up to work and was not answering calls ... prompting his family to check on him. Police confirmed he died at the Epic Hotel. Sources tell us they believe Herman suffered a heart attack, but the coroner has yet to determine cause of death.

Herman and Alexia both appeared on 'Real Housewives of Miami' and founded Venue magazine. We're told they had separated in 2015, and recently divorced.

Still, Alexia said of her late ex-husband, "He was a family man, a hardworking businessman, dedicated to helping others and a pillar of his community that was loved by everyone who's life he touched."

Brandi Glanville Something's Fishy With Her Taxes Uncle Sam Says She Owes $112k

9/13/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0822-Brandi-Glanville-tmzAdd Brandi Glanville's name to the growing list of 'Housewives' with tax problems because Uncle Sam says she's on the hook for $112k.

The ousted 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star has been hit with a federal tax lien. The feds say she owes $29,396.35 from 2013, and $82,448.38 from 2014.

The timing is no coincidence. Brandi was promoted to a main cast member during season 3, the majority of which aired in 2013.

On the bright side ... it doesn't look like Brandi's as far in the hole as NeNe Leakes, who reportedly owes the IRS $824k, or Teresa and Joe Giudice, who are paying off a $261k tab to the state of NJ.


Kim Zolciak Sorry, NeNe ... I'm Not Back On 'RHOA' But My Kids Are

9/9/2016 11:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0909-Kim-Zolciak-nene-leaks-tmzKim Zolciak isn't sure why NeNe Leakes is telling people she's coming back to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' -- 'cause she's definitely not ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Kim tell us she has not shot anything for the show, and hasn't signed on to shoot either ... contrary to NeNe's statement. 

Kim has her own show on Bravo, and we're told she doesn't see any point in returning to 'RHOA.' Funny enough, our Kim sources say her daughters, Brielle and Ariana, will actually make an appearance next season ... because they went to Sheree Whitfield's son's birthday.

As for NeNe claiming she's not coming back ... we're told producers ain't buying it, and expect to see her there front and center -- just like last season.

Exclusive Details

0907-Jules-Wainstein-tmz-02Jules Wainstein got some good news in divorce court Thursday -- her estranged husband has to fork over $10,000 per month, but he's already warning her he can't afford it. 

The 'Real Housewives of NY' star and her ex, Michael, were in an NYC court when the judge ordered him to pay the $10k for spousal and child support. She had requested $25k a month.

Michael immediately cried poverty -- his attorney says his client doesn't have any income and his credit cards have been frozen ... so he doesn't think he'll be able to make the payments.

The judge wasn't swayed. First payment's due Sept. 30. 

As for custody -- both children will stay with Jules at least until the nasty divorce battle plays out.

Kim Richards Dodges Jail Bullet

8/24/2016 1:42 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0824-kim-richards-tmz-02Kim Richards narrowly avoided jail after blowing off her community service and AA meetings in her shoplifting case.

Kim's lawyers were in court Wednesday for a probation violation hearing ... this after she missed the deadline for completing 30 days of community service and 52 AA sessions.  

Her lawyers presented proof that Kim belatedly did most of her community service and is now up to date on AA meetings, so the judge cut her a break.

Kim stays on probation and everything must be completed by the next hearing in November.

Kim was convicted of shoplifting for stealing $600 worth of stuff from Target.
