"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star NeNe Leakes says it doesn't matter they're all on a reality show -- if Kenya Moore and Claudia Jordan don't zip their lips she'll sue.
Both Moore and Jordan got warned by Leake's lawyers Tuesday to stop damaging her brand with smack talk. NeNe's pissed at Jordan for calling her bipolar and, even worse, sporting bad veneers. Her beef with Moore is unclear.
Two things strike us. It's a little "pot calling the kettle black" because NeNe's been known to go after other cast members ... por ejemplo saying Claudia was such a tramp "her clit has left her body."
And you gotta wonder what producers think about their stars setting limits on the drama.

Jeana Keough Returns ...
On a Short Leash
1/24/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Ain't nothin' like an original ... Jeana Keough is coming back to "The Real Housewives of Orange County" -- but she'll be a part-time cast member ... for now.
Jeana's been shouting from the rooftops about her return to the show she left in 2009 -- but production sources tell TMZ her camera time will be limited to start the season. We're told Bravo execs want to see if fans are still into Jeana ... before they go all in.
Of course, 'Housewives' fans remember Jeana for her epic fight with Tamra Barney -- one of the greatest in reality TV history -- and we're told things might get dicey again between them this season.
Just a hunch, but a rematch would probably cement a full-time role for Jeana. When it comes to the 'Housewives' ... if it bleeds it leads.
Joanna Krupa Sues
Hey, Brandi Glanville ...
Keep My Vagina Out Of Your Mouth
1/22/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
According to legal docs ... Krupa claims she experienced severe emotional distress when Glanville went on "Watch What Happens Live" ... and told the world JK has a stinky beaver. Now Krupa's slapped her ass with a defamation suit.
Glanville reiterated the scentiment multiple times ... and Krupa went ballistic about it last month.
If Joanna wins the suit -- filed by her attorney Ray Rafool -- she'll finally force Brandi to pay up ... but the move isn't without risk. Krupa's lady parts will now be up for discussion in open court.
The witness list should be ... interesting?
'RHOBH' Star Yolanda Foster
Lyme Disease Has Robbed Me of the Ability
to Read or Write
1/19/2015 6:26 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Yolanda Foster says her Lyme Disease has gotten so bad, she can no longer read or write.
In a blog for Bravo, Foster (who has had Lyme Disease for three years) says she relapsed last month and has had a hard time recovering.
She writes, "I have lost the ability to read, write, or even watch TV, because I can't process information or any stimulation for that matter. It feels like someone came in and confiscated my brain and tied my hands behind my back to just watch and see life go by without me participating in it."
Foster describes herself as being "of no use to anyone or anything," but says she will continue to fight and is thankful for the support from her family and friends.
Early Monday morning, Yolanda posted a photo from a hospital in Singapore, writing, "I guess God gives his hardest battles to the strongest soldiers."
No More Bud ...
She's Drinking Alone
1/16/2015 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Adrienne Maloof is cutting back on the carbs -- she's kicked her Anheuser-Busch heir BF to the curb.
Sources close to the couple tell us Adrienne ended her year and a half relationship with Jacob Busch -- but there's no bad blood between 53-year-old Maloof and 25-year-old JB.
Maloof and Busch started dating in 2013, but their relationship apparently started to fade last fall and now has finally run it's course.
Jacob shouldn't have trouble finding a beer to drown his sorrows.

Lisa Rinna abides by the motto, "If ain't broke, don't fix it!" -- because she attended two parties ... 10 years apart ... in the exact same dress!!!
Care to venture a guess which photo was taken over the weekend and which was taken in 2005?
If you said the photo on the LEFT is the more recent one ... you are correct!
If you've got a good tailor and an even better surgeon ... you'll never want for anything else in this town.

Pass the Skinnygirl Weed!
1/15/2015 7:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Like smoking weed but hate packing on the extra Funyun-induced pounds? Then Bethenny Frankel is about to become your salvation.
Yes, the woman who built Skinnygirl products into a multi-million dollar empire is now branching out into weed. Our sources confirm Frankel is working on selling a kind of pot that does NOT give you the munchies.
Frankel seemed to be doing market research last month in the Rockies when she was seen walking out of the famous Green Dragon Dispensary in Aspen. It's kinda like the Barney's New York of pot sales.
BF later tweeted, "OMG it's the craziest thing to see marijuana legal in Aspen. People walking into pot stores like it's the @Gap #prohibitiondone"
As first reported by Us Weekly, Frankel plans to peddle her buds in states where recreational marijuana is legal ... like Alaska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
'Real Housewife' Phaedra Parks
Hubby's in the Big House
So I'm Selling Mine
1/15/2015 12:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is way better with money than convicted hubby Apollo Nida ... she raked in major dough selling one of her Georgia homes.
Sources close to Phaedra tell TMZ she scored over $27K in profit when she sold her 9,148 sq-ft home last fall -- a huge financial boost when you consider Apollo had just started his 8-year prison stretch for money laundering and check fraud.
She originally snagged the 5 bedroom/5 bath property for $322K on her own back in 2001, and let it go last October for $349K. Great timing for some extra scratch -- Parks dropped strong hints last month she's going to divorce Nida.
"All the women who independent, throw your hands up at me!"
If Brandi Thinks My Vagina Stinks, Wait Till ...
She Gets a Whiff of This Lawsuit
1/14/2015 12:45 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Joanna Krupa's lady parts have finally had enough of Brandi Glanville alleging there is a major funk down there ... so Joanna's gearing up to take Brandi to court.
According to a legal letter sent from Krupa's lawyer to Glanville -- and obtained by TMZ -- JK is warning the 'RHBH' star ... her ass is about to get hit with a defamation lawsuit.
Brandi and Joanna have been feuding since November 2013 when Glanville went on "Watch What Happens Live" and claimed she'd heard from a friend ... Krupa's nether region "smelled."
She re-iterated that again just last month ... which made Krupa go ballistic about Glanville to a TMZ photog -- and most likely led to lawyers drafting this letter.
The suit has not been filed yet, but Krupa and her attorneys say ... it's coming.
Sorry, Nene ...
My Lady Parts Are Fully Intact!
1/13/2015 10:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Claudia Jordan wants to make two things clear: Her dislike of Nene Leakes is LEGIT ... and her pleasure point is doing just fine.
Claudia and Nene engaged in an epic war of words during the last "Real Housewives of Atlanta" -- when Nene accused Claudia of sleeping with so many men ... her clitoris had bailed on her. Whatever that means.
But CJ set the record straight in NYC Monday night with a gynecological update (based on her last shower) -- and took a few new shots at Nene for her lack of clever insults.
She even suggests ... it might be time for the reigning queen of 'RHOA' to move on.
Ooohh, yes she did!
'Real Housewives' May Hibernate
Until She's Free
1/13/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice may have just had a reversal of fortune, because we've learned Bravo is seriously considering shelving "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" until Teresa gets sprung ... they think she's THAT important to the success of the show.
Our sources say Bravo execs have been holding meetings and they're "strongly leaning" in the direction of putting the show on ice, because without Teresa it's boring. Bravo is worried a bad season could tank the show, and it's just safer to wait.
This is not sitting well with the rest of the cast. Bruised egos aside, the women are pissed at the prospect of not pulling in a paycheck for more than a year. She's serving 15 months.
Teresa, who has a conflict with virtually every other "housewife" on the show, can almost certainly use this turn of events to her financial advantage. It's pretty basic ... the more the network needs you, the more you make.
TMZ reached out to Bravo ... they had no comment.
Prison Beauty Regimen
Coffee Grinds and Vaseline
1/10/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa Giudice doesn't have access to MAC products, but a company has jerry-rigged a Sephora-like experience that will keep her fresh and young-ish.
PRIV -- an app that sends a beauty expert straight to your door -- sent Teresa a letter offering beauty hacks for pretty women behind bars. The products generally have a primary purpose that is not cosmetic, but they work in a pinch. They include:
-- Vaseline, which acts as a lip exfoliant. PRIV advises that Teresa gently use a toothbrush to buff her lips with the lubricant, wipe with cool water and dab dry.
-- Advil Liqui-Gels. Break open the capsule. It's great for acne.
-- Protein Powder. Add a few scoops to the commissary conditioner. It boosts hair growth and locks in the moisture and shine.
-- Uncooked Oatmeal and Coffee Grinds. Great for the skin. Combine in equal parts and add just enough water to make a paste for a simple scrub. The oatmeal soothes while the coffee invigorates the skin.
It's like if MacGyver went to beauty school.
Teresa & Joe Giudice
Fire Sale for New Jersey Mansion
1/7/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Teresa and Joe Giudice just DRASTICALLY reduced the asking price for their New Jersey mansion, because they MUST move out stat for cheaper digs.
The convicted couple just slashed half a mil off the asking price. But the situation is more dire than it seems. They had initially listed the house for $3.99 million, but there were no takers, so in November they lowered the price by $500,000. Still no takers.
The latest cut brings the asking price to a relatively reasonable $2.99 mil. Their realtor believes that should do the trick.
Teresa and Joe are cash strapped after their conviction and they want to radically downsize.
