'RHONY' Star Sonja Morgan Whoops!! My Gown's Going Down ... But Show Goes On!!!

3/9/2018 8:45 AM PST

'Real Housewife of New York' star Sonja Morgan turned a cabaret revue into a full-on burlesque strip tease when her wrap dress unraveled in front of a packed crowd.

Sonja was dancing backup Thursday night for fellow 'Housewife' Luann de Lesseps during her #CountessAndFriends cabaret in NYC. Sonja was putting down some serious white girl dancing, and seemed like a seasoned, fearless performer. Maybe too fearless.

The dress came undone, her girls came popping out, and through it all ... Sonja did not skip a beat. 

Best of all ... Luann was singing her hit, "Money Can't Buy You Class" when the wardrobe malfunction happened. Awesome timing.

Luann de Lesseps Rejects Plea Deal In Felony Drunken Arrest

2/14/2018 7:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps ain't afraid of no felony charges, apparently ... because she's rejecting a plea deal offer from prosecutors.

The 'Real Housewives of NY' star's attorney was in court Wednesday morning for a hearing on her drunk and disorderly arrest in Palm Beach on Christmas Eve. Prosecutors offered her a deal during the hearing ... and her side turned it down.

Prosecutors didn't lay out details of their offer.

Rejecting the deal is a pretty bold move on Luann's part. She's been charged with a felony count of resisting an officer with violence for the incident -- not to mention 2 misdemeanors ... trespassing and disorderly intoxication.

She could get up to 5 years in prison for the felony alone, so ... someone's feeling lucky.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Luann entered her plea in Florida just a few days before New Year's. As we reported ... Luann was charged with 5 crimes, 4 of which are felonies -- battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence, and 2 counts of corruption by threat.

'RHONY' Star Luann de Lesseps Resurfaces for Christmas ... After Drunken Arrest

12/26/2017 11:06 AM PST

Luann de Lesseps played it cool for Christmas -- hanging with family, and keeping a low profile ... which was probably a good idea after her arrest this weekend.

The 'Real Housewives of New York City' star was seen hanging with her fam Monday at a barbecue, where her brother, Michael Nadeau, was firing up the grill. You see Luann here, too, but she's definitely not jumping to be in front of the camera.

As we reported ... Luann was arrested in Palm Beach Sunday for being drunk, disorderly and for allegedly attacking a cop. She was ultimately charged with 5 crimes, 4 of which were felonies. 

The Countess did end up apologizing, saying Palm Beach brought back bad memories ... and aspired for a "transformative and hopeful" new year. Good start on the day after.

Bethenny Frankel I Want My Daughter!!! Sues Ex for Custody

12/12/2017 7:50 AM PST

Bethenny Frankel is taking her ex-husband back to court for custody of their daughter ... and she might be using his stalking and harassment case as leverage.

Bethenny reopened her divorce case against Jason Hoppy, according to docs filed December 6. She's most likely seeking full custody of their 7-year-old daughter, Bryn ... since they'd previously reached a custody agreement in 2014.

Since then, Hoppy was ordered to stay away from Bethenny after he allegedly told her, "I will destroy you." He was charged with stalking and aggravated harassment, and struck a plea deal in the case.

Unclear if that's the reason for her reigniting a custody battle -- we've made calls in to their attorneys -- but they're due in court in January.

Bethenny Frankel Might Put Her Dog, Cookie, Down ... After 45 Minute Seizure

10/29/2017 11:42 AM PDT

Bethenny Frankel had an extremely tough weekend -- her family dog suffered a massive seizure ... and now she's saying she might have to put her down.

Bethenny posted a number of harrowing videos Saturday of her pup, Cookie, having a seizure at her home ... with a distraught Bethenny literally asking her social media followers what she should do, especially since her nearest vet is 40 min away.

Bethenny later said their docs didn't have good news at first -- Cookie was alive, but unconscious ... but she's now resting with a high temperature. During the seizure scare, Bethenny said she'd be putting her down if she didn't recover.

The ex-RHONY star caught flak for what some thought was a terrible reaction to the situation -- people assumed she waited 45 minutes before bringing the dog to the vet, and opted to film instead.

Bethenny cleared up the controversy, though ... she said they left for the vet only 3 minutes into Cookie's seizure, and that she only resorted to social media out of desperation. 

#TBT to that time I had my own spread in @people magazine #itsallaboutme

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Divorce Drama Was Not On Camera

8/3/2017 4:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino timed her divorce just right to avoid it playing out on the show.

Our 'RHONY' sources say production for this season wrapped a couple months ago ... so if there were any juicy spats in the days before Luann and Tom D'Agostino's divorce announcement, cameras missed the action.

D'Agostino also dodged any mention of the big D during the reunion, which was taped a few weeks ago. Our sources say the couple's sometimes rocky relationship was discussed, but there wasn't a peep about a split.

As we reported, Luann announced Thursday she and hubby Tom were calling it quits ... just 8 months after they tied the knot.

We're told producers are scrambling to figure out a way to weave the divorce into the reunion episode. Take 2?

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Splitsville

Exclusive Details

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino and her husband are calling it quits.

Sources close to Luann tell TMZ ... Tom D’Agostino didn't get along with Luann's family and it seemed his inappropriate behavior in the past was too much for the family to get over once married.

She made the shocking announcement Thursday on Twitter, saying, "It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Luann -- who got married just 8 months ago -- had a tumultuous relationship with 2 of her 'Housewives' co-stars, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Luann constantly bickered with them because Ramona and Sonja would bring up the fact they used to date Tom. Awkward.

Luann and Tom started dating in late 2015 and have no children.

'RHONY' Star Dorinda How's My Slogan Doing? Damn Well, Bitch!

EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of New York' star Dorinda Medley knows bitchin' deals when she sees one -- her "Not Well, Bitch" line of products could soon land at a major department store.

Dorinda's rep at Talent Resources tells TMZ ... the slogan caught fire after she screamed it at "Sex and the City" writer, Candace Bushnell, this season. Since then, Dorinda filed docs to trademark the slogan and started selling coffee mugs, tote bags, t-shirts and towels with the phrase.

We're told business is boomin' -- Dorinda's sold more than 700 items and banked more than $100k a month after launching the line. Business is so good ... Dorinda's now in talks with 2 major department stores.

Not bad, bitch.

Bethenny Frankel Pay Up, eBay Or Pull My Ad!!!

7/19/2017 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel never signed off on being in a commercial for eBay, but they went ahead and aired it anyway ... according to new legal docs.

Frankel's camp claims she was in talks with eBay and an ad agency about running an ad featuring clips from last season's 'Real Housewives of New York' ... but no deal was ever struck. However, the commercial still went live on "multiple media outlets" last week ... according to the docs.

So, Frankel fired off a cease and desist letter to eBay demanding they pay up for using her name and likeness or yank the ad. And she says even if they pull the spot immediately, they'll still owe her for the week it aired.

As for the ad -- it's a spoof featuring fellow 'RHONY' star Dorinda Medley ... who's apparently totally cool with being in it.

Not the same handbag as everyone else!! 😂 thank you for this @eBay @bethennyfrankel #wow #didyoucheckebay?!

Carole Radziwill Threatened by Woman ... You Better Not Air Tapes of Our Convos!

5/17/2017 1:02 PM PDT

1:20 PM PT -- Bravo says the judge just ruled in its favor, rejecting Barbara's motion to block ... which means Barbara stays in the picture ... TV show, in this case.'Real Housewives of New York' star Carole Radziwill secretly recorded talks she had with a woman, and their private convos will air Wednesday night unless a judge steps in ... according to new legal docs.

Barbara K, founder of a DIY company, claims she had what she believed to be a private discussion with Carole at a charity party at Bagatelle in Manhattan. She says 'Real Housewives' was filming ... but their convo took place far away from cameras and she didn't know Radziwill was mic'd.

According to the docs ... Barbara had a phone call with Carole more than a month later that was also recorded without her knowledge. She claims Radziwill called her back afterward to inform her both interactions had been recorded for 'RHONY.'

Barbara says she told Carole she didn't have permission to use the convos on the show or anywhere else, and her lawyer fired off a letter to Bravo telling them the same.

Despite this, 'RHONY' still plans to put Barbara in Wednesday night's episode ... which is why she requested an emergency court order to stop the show from using her likeness and/or voice.

The clock's ticking.
