'Real Housewives of Miami' Herman Echevarria Dies in Hotel

9/26/2016 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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
EXCLUSIVE

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.

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

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. 

'RHONY' Star's Divorce Awarded $10k/Mo. But Good Luck Collecting

9/8/2016 2:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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

EXCLUSIVE

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.

8/19/2016 2:07 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0819_kelly_dodd_mansion_launchKelly Meza-Dodd from 'Real Housewives of Orange County' is getting rid of some prime OC real estate ... and doing some high-priced flipping in the process.

Kelly's listed her 4 bedroom, 4 bath oceanside home in Newport Beach for $6.25 million. The pad is a stone's throw from Big Corona Beach and in pristine condition, hence the steep price.

Kelly and her husband bought it just a year ago for $3.575 mil, but they've sunk some dough into it ... doing a bunch of renovations. Check out what they've done to the 4,370 sq. feet of the place.

Pretty sweet, especially the view from the rooftop deck.

Kenya Moore Giving Howard Student a Second Chance

EXCLUSIVE

0816-kenya-moore-dj-harvard-INSTAGRAm-01Kenya Moore is making sure a Howard University student who says she got stiffed by her summer job ... has the cash she needs to keep hitting the books.

The 'RHOA' star tells us she started a crowdfunding page for De'Juae Leathers, who's supposed to be a sophomore this year, but can't fork over the dough for tuition. 

De'Juae, who's known Kenya for 5 years, is already on financial aid and scored what she thought was a paid summer internship with an ambassador for an African nation. But De'Juae says the guy hasn't cut her a paycheck.

So far, more than a quarter of Kenya's $4,270 goal on the GoFundMe page has been raised. Kenya says she's matching every dollar, so if the goal's met by Thursday's deadline, De'Juae will have enough money for next semester.

You'll recall Kenya cut a check in 2014 for $20k for Detroit Public Schools Foundation ... so it's clear education's important to her, and she's good for it

Phaedra Parks 'Bomb' Suspect/Friend Ordered to Keep His Distance

8/16/2016 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0815-phaedra-parks-TMZ-01It doesn't matter if Phaedra Parks is longtime pals with the guy accused of threatening her with a bomb ... a judge says he still has to stay away from her. 

Terence Cook, best known as the rapper, Drama ... was released on a $25,000 bond last week with strict conditions while he's out of jail -- including not coming within 200 yards of Phaedra, her office or her crew. He also has to wear an ankle monitor, and get a mental evaluation.

The tight leash comes after Phaedra told TMZ ... Drama is an old friend and former client of hers, and the whole "bomb" incident was a huge misunderstanding. She says Drama was dropping off his mixtape, not a bomb. 

As we reported, he was arrested back in July for the alleged bomb threat at Phaedra's office

Phaedra told us she was trying to help Drama get legal assistance. We've reached out to her, but no word back yet.

The call came in just before 8 AM Wednesday from Julie's Manhattan home. We're told minutes before cops arrived, Michael left.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star and estranged hubby Peter Thomas put their East Atlanta home up for sale late last month and it's already in escrow ... almost for the full asking price of $699k. By metropolitan standards, it's a bargain ... 4 bedrooms, 5 baths.

Peter and Cynthia separated in March. He's been living in Charlotte, North Carolina where he owns a restaurant. We're told Cynthia has been eyeing a lakeside property outside Atlanta.

It seems they're at the point of no return.
