'RHOBH' Star Erika Jayne Having Surgery for 'DWTS' Injury ... Didn't Blow Off Last Dance

5/26/2017 11:06 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Erika Jayne wasn't being stuck-up on the finale of "Dancing with the Stars" like some fans accused her of being -- she skipped the final group performance because she needed surgery.

The 'Real Housewives' star is at an L.A. hospital Friday to have surgery to fix an upper body tear she suffered during the show. Sources with 'DWTS' tell us ... Jayne felt like something was wrong during a dance in early April.

Doctors confirmed the injury, but we're told she pressed on without telling anyone ... because she didn't want to play the sympathy card. She was eliminated shortly thereafter.

Doctors told her she should stop all dancing after that, which is why she sat on the sidelines -- on top of a unicorn -- during the finale.

We reached out to ABC about Erika's injury ... they had no comment.

Kyle was leaving Craig's Tuesday night when our photog asked how Conrad's doing after being released to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation.  

The 'Housewife' star made it clear .. Conrad's struggling.

5/12/2017 4:07 PM PDT
Breaking News

Peter Thomas and Matt Jordan's radio station brawl was as epic as advertised -- the video is finally out, and one of them definitely delivered an ass whoopin'.

You'll recall ... the 'RHOA' guys went toe-to-toe back in March during a radio interview in Charlotte. There were several tense moments of trash talking while the host stepped between them ... but Matt eventually had enough, and charged at Peter.

At the time, Peter bragged he'd held his own in the fight. You can decide for yourself.

Peter is pressing assault charges, and our 'Housewives' sources tell us his attorney subpoenaed the video from the radio station. 

Phaedra Parks I Was Set Up to Get Taken Out ... Now I'm Being Harassed!!

5/11/2017 3:37 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is blasting 'RHOA' producers for feeding her lies and firing her when she called them out ... which has ruined her rep and led to daily threats and bullying.

Sources close to the ex-Housewife tell us she's mad as hell, because she claims a producer gave her the B.S. story she told to Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss -- the whole drugging and raping thing.

The producer didn't necessarily tell her to repeat it with cameras rolling, but we're told Phaedra explained the producer's role during the reunion show. She's also angry because that was edited out of the reunion to make it look like she acted alone.

We're told the way Phaedra sees it, she was fired in retaliation for throwing producers under the bus.

Phaedra's been getting online threats, and as we reported ... at least one fan wants her to face even more punishment. We're told her office is also getting bombarded with hate mail, and her kids are getting harassed.

We're told Phaedra insists the 'Housewives' crew knows she's not the source of the lie.

Joanna Krupa Transparent Politics

5/11/2017 6:54 AM PDT

Joanna Krupa has a way of making politics very titillating ... and it involves wearing a see-through dress. Without a bra.

The newly single, ex-'Real Housewife' was leaving Craig's Wednesday in WeHo -- and while she waited for her ride, she got to talking Trump and how politics break up couples.

We'd like to say this is an interesting convo because Joanna just separated from her husband -- but we'll be honest ... she's damn near naked.

So, enough talk. Watch the clip.

Phaedra Parks 'RHOA' Lies Should Get Her Disbarred Says Famed Whistleblower

5/10/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks' punishment for spreading lies on 'RHOA' should go beyond her reality show firing, she also needs to lose her license to practice law ... according to a guy who lives to challenge the 'Housewives.'

Michael Lissack has filed an official grievance with the State Bar of Georgia against Phaedra for her behavior on 'Real Housewives.' He told us why he thinks Phaedra's treatment of Kandi and Porsha this past season is grounds to yank her law license.

Lissack's a former Smith Barney director who famously blew the whistle on his firm in 1994 for overcharging municipalities. This also isn't his first 'Housewives' rodeo either -- he claims to have exposed Vicki Gunvalson last year for allegedly running a fake cancer charity. 

What's odd is ... the guy who's complaining so hard about the 'Housewives' seems to be watching them as closely as any superfan.

Phaedra's rep tells us, "This is a frivolous complaint filed by an attention seeking fan. We fully expect that it will be dismissed."

One more thing you're probably wondering about -- his little dog's name is Zeus.

5/9/2017 1:18 PM PDT

Kim Zolciak just shared an up close and personal post-surgery photo of her son's injured face after he was gnarled by a dog ... and the attack left several marks.

Kim posted a pic Tuesday of 4-year-old Kash Biermann, with a long caption thanking fans who sent prayers during the ordeal. She says ... "Kash has healed up incredibly and has perfect vision in his left eye. Stitches on his water line, and his eyeball was never touched! God is Good!"

Kim also thanked the doctors who operated on her son.

As we reported ... Kash had to undergo surgery after he was bitten in the face. At the time, Kim cited his injuries as "traumatic." She's never said anything more about the attack or whose dog was behind it.

Great to see Kash is doing better now.

Phaedra Parks Fired From 'RHOA' For Spreading Rape Rumors

5/8/2017 12:12 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks won't be showing her face anymore on 'RHOA' -- she's been fired for spreading lies and rumors about cast members conspiring to rape ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the production tell us Phaedra was let go due to a rumor she told Porsha Williams about Kandi Burruss during the course of this latest season, which came to dramatic end Sunday night.

We're told that during filming for the show, Phaedra had told Porsha that Kandi and her hubby, Todd Tucker, were planning to drug Porsha and take her back to their home to take advantage of her sexually. Kandi threatened Bravo if they aired that clip ... so they didn't. 

But during Sunday's finale of a 4-part reunion following the 9th season, all those secrets finally spilled in front of America ... with Phaedra being outed as the source of the nasty rumor.

We're told Bravo felt like Phaedra's allegations were so out of line, they simply couldn't continue working with her and informed her in early April. 

'RHONJ' Star Teresa Giudice Pisses Off Probation Dept. ... Report Your Tickets Or Else!

5/8/2017 10:21 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Teresa Giudice is possibly risking more jail time after failing to report 2 traffic tickets ... during supervised release in her fraud conviction. 

According to court docs, the 'RHONJ' star failed to give her probation officer the heads-up after she was ticketed. The first one was for making an illegal turn last year. She and her lawyer were warned that any future contact with law enforcement had to be reported. But then she got another citation last month for using her phone while driving -- and, again, she didn't tell her P.O.

In the docs, her P.O. makes it clear ... this is her last written warning before she's dragged into court again over it.

Teresa's attorney, James Leonard Jr., tells TMZ ... both tickets were reported, but not within the required time frame. He adds Teresa's been fully compliant other than these incidents, and ... "Both she and I have spoken to her officer and understand exactly what is required should she have any future contact with law enforcement, which we do not anticipate will happen."

Teresa got 24 months of supervised release when she was released from prison in December 2015.  

Phaedra Parks Busting Out of Hiding After Divorce Drama

5/8/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is still legally married to Apollo Nida but that's not stopping her from dancing on couches at the club dressed in head-to-toe lingerie.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star hit up the Banco Lounge in Atlanta for celeb stylist Jeremy Haynes' birthday. As you may have guessed ... lots of skin.

"Basketball Wives LA" star Angel Love, "Married to Medicine" star Quad Lunceford, Toya Wright, Monyetta Shaw all showed face. Kenya Moore's ex-beau, Matt Jordan, was also front and center.

As we reported, Phaedra's divorce had been finalized back in November but a judge overturned it because Nida, who's behind bars, hadn't been properly served.

NeNe Leakes Close to Signing 'RHOA' Deal And Spinning Another

4/29/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes is inching closer to striking a deal for her return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... and it might lead to a starring role on a new show.

Sources close to production tell us ... NeNe's ready to come back for season 10 of 'RHOA' but hasn't signed the paperwork yet. We're told Bravo's trying to sweeten the deal by working with her on a spin-off ... à la Kim Zolciak's "Don't Be Tardy."

There's also the matter of money. We know NeNe wants to be paid as much as, if not more than, Kim. Our sources say Leakes will only return to 'RHOA' as a part-time cast member. Once again ... just like Kim.

Season 10 is about to be amazing.

Kenya Moore Restraining Order Tossed Matt Jordan's Ducking Me

4/27/2017 1:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's ex-BF, Matt Jordan, no longer has to stay away from her because a judge tossed the restraining order when she couldn't find him to serve legal docs.

Kenya's temporary restraining order was dismissed Wednesday after she was a no-show at a hearing on the matter. Kenya's lawyer tells TMZ ... she only skipped court because she knew the judge would toss it once he heard Matt hadn't been served.

You'll recall ... Kenya said Matt was blowing up her phone 30 times a day and had also threatened her. The temporary restraining order required him to stay 200 yards away from Kenya. 

Her attorney says Kenya will refile for another protective order ... but she's gonna have to locate Matt eventually.

Phaedra Parks to Apollo Nida Let's REALLY Divorce Now But Don't Forget the Prenup!

4/27/2017 11:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is facing a do-over in her divorce but still insists their prenup should block Apollo Nida from attempting to get alimony.

Phaedra filed docs in Georgia asking the court to enforce what she considers an ironclad prenup Apollo signed on October 23, 2009 ... 9 days before they got married.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Phaedra says they both agreed to waive their right to alimony ... meaning he shouldn't get a dime in spousal support when the divorce is final. She also claims they agreed how to divide their assets when they signed on the dotted line.

Phaedra thinks it's simple -- the prenup should control who gets to keep what, and doesn't want to leave things up to the judge ... as Apollo requested.

And she really sticks it to him ... saying the fact his assets have plummeted is his own doing because of his criminal activity. Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... a judge threw out Phaedra's final divorce judgment because he was concerned by a number of things -- including Phaedra intentionally misspelling Apollo's name in docs.
