D'Andra Simmons We Want Omarosa ... On 'Housewives'

8/14/2018 12:50 AM PDT

The White House didn't work out for Omarosa ... but she might be a better fit in a different house. 

D'Andra Simmons, one of the stars of 'Real Housewives of Dallas,' is certain Omarosa could be the next big thing on her series, which returns Wednesday night.

We caught up with Simmons in NYC, and she tells us Omarosa would be "an amazing Housewife" cast member -- mainly because she's proven she's not afraid to mix it up with people ... just ask President Trump. Remember, she told us he's trying to start a race war.

As for any current drama in Dallas -- it sounds like D'Andra's relationship with LeeAnne Locken is strained ... at best. 

Bethenny Frankel Boyfriend Took Fatal Oxy Night Before ... Awoke in Desperation

8/10/2018 2:01 PM PDT

Bethenny Frankel's boyfriend started the binge that killed him Thursday night and realized he was in trouble ... TMZ has learned.

Dennis Shields was found dead Friday in Trump Tower from an apparent oxycodone OD. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Dennis took an unknown quantity of oxycodone Rx pills Thursday night. He woke up Friday AM feeling ill and asked his housekeeper to go to the pharmacy to buy Narcan, which blocks the effects of an opioid overdose.

It's unclear when Dennis fell into a state of unconsciousness, but at some point the maid realized he was unresponsive and called 911. As we reported, the maid administered the Narcan but he remained unresponsive.

EMTs rushed to Trump Tower but it was too late.

Dennis was 51.

'RHOBH' Star Dorit Kemsley & Hubby Sued for Stiffing Bathing Suit Partner

8/9/2018 12:25 PM PDT

2:40 PM PT -- Sources close to Dorit say that, while she and Paul know Ryan Horne, he never fronted them a dime ... and they'll respond appropriately to his claims in court. 

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Dorit Kemsley and her hubby have just been slapped with a lawsuit alleging the couple royally screwed a business partner.

Ryan Horne filed new legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- claiming he struck a deal back in August 2017 to partner up with Dorit and her husband, Paul Kemsley, to make bathing suits. In docs, Ryan claims they each owned a third of the biz and he says he fronted them nearly $130k in merch plus $75k for other expenses.

But, Ryan says he never saw a dime after Dorit and PK sold the bathing suits for a huge profit and lined their pockets without paying him back. He's now suing to get the money he fronted Dorit and PK, plus a cut of the profits from the bathing suit sales.

We've reached out to Dorit and PK, so far no word back.

The "Real Housewives of Miami" star tied the knot with Douglas Nunes Saturday in an intimate ceremony just months after the two announced their engagement.

Unclear if any of her fellow 'Housewives' stars attended Saturday's ceremony, but plenty of friends and family were in attendance. 

As for Brandi Glanville ... safe to say she didn't get an invite.

Luann de Lesseps Out of Rehab ... Says She's Much Better

8/2/2018 1:48 PM PDT

Luann de Lesseps has been released from rehab after less than 3 weeks, and she says it helped her out ... so she's already preparing to get back to work.

Sources close to the situation tell TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of New York' star reached out to friends Monday to let them know she was out of her Connecticut rehab facility. She told them she's "doing better" and getting ready for her cabaret gig at The Paramount in Long Island Saturday night.

The show will be her first public appearance since her rehab stint.

We broke the story ... those close to Luann said she fell off the wagon at least 2 weeks before she checked into rehab a few weeks back -- for the second time in less than a year.

Hopefully ... take two does the trick.

Tamra Judge 'Real Housewives' Get Real Naked!!! And Break Real Bones Too

7/31/2018 7:58 AM PDT

Gotta respect Tamra Judge's hot tub game -- get drunk, get naked and dive right in, baby! She just sucks hard at sticking the landing.

The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' crew was down in Mexico on Monday night's episode, and things got pretty wild when Tamra and Shannon Beador decided to hop in the tub. Tamra just decided to do it in the nude.

Like we said, she's got hot tub game! TJ even flaunted her bod outside the tub, but watch ... the plot twist came when she tried to jump back into it, apparently breaking her foot.

The good news ... she seemed to be pretty wasted. As they say ... tequila kills the pain.

Bethenny Frankel Not Just Frenemies with Carole ...

7/30/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The icy relations between Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill aren't unique -- we're told a whole lotta 'Housewives' aren't feeling the love from Frankel ... or giving it back.

Sources close to 'The Real Housewives of New York' cast tell TMZ ... it's hard to find any 'RHONY' stars who are fans of Bethenny. We're told most of the women feel she's negative, toxic and talks trash about everyone ... but they try to stay on good terms to avoid trouble.

They say Frankel acts high and mighty around the rest of the cast because of her successful side hustles ... but won't acknowledge the other ladies were successful too before and after their stints as 'Housewives.'

We broke the story ... Radziwill announced her departure from 'RHONY' by saying she was thrilled to say goodbye to frenemies -- a not-so-thinly veiled shot at Bethenny.

Turns out ... the frenemies are strong with this one.

We reached out to Frankel for comment. So far, no word back.

Denise Richards Slashed Hidden Hills House Price Tag ... for 'Housewives'

7/29/2018 12:40 AM PDT

Denise Richards isn't about to let a little thing like her zip code keep her from joining "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... which is why she slashed the price on her Hidden Hills mansion to move.

Sources close to the situation tell us Denise's motivation for lowering her asking price on her 6 bedroom, 8 bath crib was to get outta Dodge ASAP. As we first reported, Denise reduced the price by almost $1.3 million back in October. She dropped it even more this year and finally sold it last week for $4.995 mil.

Why the fire sale? Denise's neighbors bitched nonstop about filming back in 2008 when she had her reality show, 'It's Complicated' -- so much so, the property management company banned all productions. 

It's widely believed Denise will join 'RHOBH' for season 9, so she'd need a new place anyway. No word where she's moving to now that she's unloaded the mansion.

The smart money's on something in the 90210.

'RHOC' Stars Tamra & Shannon Sued You Bad-Mouthed My Divorce & Biz ... $1 Million, Please!!!

7/27/2018 1:53 PM PDT

'RHOC' stars Tamra Judge and Shannon Beador were warned, and now Alexis Bellino's estranged husband wants 'em to pay up for running their mouths about his family.

Jim Bellino filed a lawsuit Friday, ripping Tamra and Shannon for doubling down on statements they've made to the media ... claiming his trampoline biz had paralyzed customers, and that his pending divorce from Alexis was fake. 

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, he says their statement that "he's going to jail" is a flat-out lie.

Jim adds ... he's not buying the excuse they laid out on "Watch What Happens Live" earlier this month ... when they claimed they were "just poking fun" when they went in on him.

TMZ broke the story ... Jim fired off a cease and desist letter to the ladies, but he says they did neither. He's suing for damages in excess of $1 million.

We've reached out to Tamra and Shannon, so far no word back.

Carole Radziwill Bethenny's Public 'Frenemy' #1 ... Driving Me From 'RHONY'

7/25/2018 3:54 PM PDT

Carole Radziwill's announcement she's leaving 'Real Housewives of NY' due to "frenemies" is a not-so-thinly veiled shot at Bethenny Frankel ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the 'RHONY' cast tell TMZ ... Carole feels like Bethenny is el jefe when it comes to cast members. She's, quite simply, the dominant personality, but after Carole and Bethenny had a falling out in the Spring ... Carole felt blackballed, in a way.

Our sources say BF controls the show and used her power to push Carole out of the picture ... effectively reducing her camera time. Behind the scenes, we're told, other cast members refer to 'RHONY' as 'The Bethenny Show.'

We've reached out to Bethenny ... but no word back yet.

In the end, Carole's gonna be just fine after her 6 seasons on Bravo -- we're told she intends to focus on writing projects better suited for her "more steady temperament," and so far she's got 3 in the works.

'RHONY' Cast Members Luann is Missed! Skips Reunion for Rehab

7/17/2018 11:15 AM PDT

The stars of the 'Real Housewives of New York City' say they feel bad Luann de Lesseps is missing their reunion taping for rehab ... but they're staying positive. 

We got a few 'RHONY' cast members heading into Cipriani in NYC Tuesday to film their season 10 reunion episode, and our photog asked about Luann's absence.

Ramona Singer says all the housewives feel bad, but adds they'll be okay without her. Tinsley Mortimer offered Luann well-wishes and Sonja Morgan says Luann will be missed.

As we reported ... the countess had been spiraling out of control weeks before announcing she was entering rehab for a second time in less than a year.

Her girls all say they're rooting for her, which -- let's be honest -- doesn't always happen with the 'Housewives.'

Luann de Lesseps Sued By Ex-Husband & Kids ... You Broke Divorce Deal & Screwed Us!!

7/12/2018 12:32 PM PDT

Countess Luann de Lesseps, one of the stars of "The Real Housewives of New York City," has another legal mess on her hands with a lawsuit from none other than her ex and their kids.

Luann's ex, Alexandre de Lesseps, and their 2 adult children -- Noel and Victoria -- are suing her claiming she didn't keep her end of the divorce deal signed back in 2009.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, they say Luann treated herself back in 2013 to a luxurious $3.1 mil pad in the ritzy town of Sag Harbor, NY, but never followed through with creating a trust giving the kids half of the house. That was part of the divorce deal.

Now, they say she's threatening to sell the house and use the cash to buy herself a new crib in upstate NY ... which would mean the kids never got their cut. They want the court to declare she's in breach of the divorce and move forward with an injunction blocking the house sale.

We've reached out to Luann, so far no word back.
