Bethenny Frankel Ex-Hubby Says I Need a Relationship with your BF

11/23/2016 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1122_bethenny-frankel-jason_hoppy_tmz_gettyBethenny Frankel's ex-husband is bristling over threats by her current boyfriend to sue him for trashing her in emails, saying he's forced to interact with the BF because the guy's constantly around his daughter.

Jason Hoppy fired off a letter to the lawyer for Dennis Shields, who threatened to sue Hoppy claiming he was sending a flurry of disgusting, harassing emails to Bethenny and cc'ing him.

Hoppy, who Shields claimed sent emails calling Bethenny ugly, old and irrelevant, never specifically disputed the content of what he sent, but he did say, "As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother."

Hoppy goes on to say as long as Shields is in his daughter's life, "I have no choice but to have some type of relationship with him."

Short story ... Shields threatened to sue Hoppy if he didn't stop the emails, so it seems like they're gonna have a date in court.

Waring's in lockup awaiting trial for attempted murder, and is also facing a lawsuit from the man he allegedly shot.

'RHONY' Star Down and Dirty in Divorce Court

11/16/2016 11:00 AM PST

1116-michael-jules-waintsein-tmz-03Only thing missing between 'Real Housewives of New York' star Jules Wainstein and estranged hubby Michael was some actual slimy mud during a vicious back-and-forth slinging in court. 

The estranged couple appeared in court Wednesday in NYC for a spousal and child support hearing that quickly went south ... with their lawyers going at each other's throats with allegations of money troubles, drug use and being unfit parents.

Michael painted Jules as someone living way beyond her means ... whose spending quadrupled when she joined 'RHONY.' Michael pointed to a $40k AmEx bill in 2015 and $2k spent on Uber the first 15 days of October.  

He also brought up Jules' history of drug use documented on TV ... to which the judge snapped back by saying, "I don't decide my cases based on what's on TV."

Jules admitted to making $60k during her 1 year stint on 'RHONY' while she was married. She blamed Michael for a pile of unpaid bills and not having filed proper tax returns in nearly a decade.

She said Michael doesn't deserve more time with their kids. She claims every other weekend is more than enough, since all he does is pawn the kids off on their nanny.

The judge made no decisions, saying they need to resolve their money issues first. Same goes for custody ... though the judge added there could well be a trial.

As we reported ... Michael filed for divorce back in July and wanted full custody of their 2 kids.

Roy & Lea Black Get Our View From the Top for $3 Mil

11/16/2016 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1115-lea-roy-black-house-launch-6bHigh-powered attorney Roy Black -- who's pulled Justin Bieber and Kelsey Grammer's bacon out of the fire -- is hoping to squeeze more than a mil out of his Hollywood Hills home.

Black and his wife, former 'Real Housewife' Lea Black, have listed the fully remodeled 4 bedroom, 5 bath pad above Sunset Strip for $3.2 million. They bought it in 2004 for $1.76 mil, so looks like they may make a little profit.

The home is listed by Steven Spreafico and has 3,536 sq feet, floor to ceiling windows and some of the best sight lines in the city. The ridiculous amount of outdoor living space is a major bonus too.  

Lea and Roy are also unloading one of their homes in Miami

Joanna Krupa Sues Strip Club ... I'm No Cheap Thrill!

11/15/2016 1:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

1115-joanna-krupa-TMZ-02Joanna Krupa is NOT getting nude for something called "Super Sexy Saturday," but she is going after a Florida strip joint for using her mug and bod to promote the event.

Joanna is suing Pink Pony Tampa, claiming the club slapped her image all over advertisements for the "dance and shower" shows. The former 'Real Housewife' wants off all promos, and she wants to be paid her fair market value for the ads that are already out there.

According to docs ... Joanna says she never agreed to rep the joint, and even IF she chose to jeopardize her career at an "all nude all friction strip club" ... she'd charge an arm and a leg.

Translation: Everyone has their price.

Joanna even got an appraisal on her likeness, and says she can command $100k per photo! Colombian model Lina Posada is also suing the Pink Pony, but says her shots are worth a more reasonable $20k each.

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

1111-apollo-nida-INSTAGRAM-01Apollo Nida will appear on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' from prison and he's bringing his new mystery fiancée along for the ride too ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us Apollo started dating the woman 2 years ago ... before he started his prison sentence, and they got engaged a couple months ago. We're told the woman lives in NJ, not far from the the federal prison where he's serving his sentence ... and she visits twice a week.

She and Apollo have both shot scenes for the upcoming 'RHOA' season -- he's on by phone -- and we're told producers want to keep her identity under wraps until the episode airs.

The 2 big questions: NO, the fiancée did not shoot scenes with Apollo's ex, but Phaedra Parks' reaction to the relationship was captured -- and NO ... the fiancée doesn't have a ring.

Diamonds are frowned upon in federal lockup.

Exclusive Details

1026-jules-michael-wainstein-tmzJules Wainstein's ex tried to pull a fast one by renting out an NYC apartment he had no business hawking because SHE owns it ... according to a new lawsuit, but he denies any wrongdoing.

Michael Wainstein is being sued by Jonathan Sheffer -- a famous conductor -- who says he needed to lease a place for his nanny, and Michael offered the pad ... at a premium. In the suit, Sheffer says Michael demanded more than $20k for rent, security deposit and broker fees.

Sheffer agreed and signed the lease, but according to the docs ... he had maintenance issues with the place, which led to his big discovery -- Michael wasn't the owner.

Sheffer thinks Michael was taking the cash for personal use. He's suing for a complete refund, plus damages.

Wainstein's attorney tells us Sheffer's the one in the wrong, and claims he breached the terms of the lease and is simply looking for "a creative way to cancel his obligations." He adds ... Michael denies all the allegations, and plans to file his own lawsuit against Sheffer.

'RHONJ' Star Couple Sues Virgin America ... Your Flight Attendant Lied About Our 'Fight'

Breaking News

1025-amber-jim-marchese-virgin-airlines-TMZ-01A Virgin America flight attendant is a bald-faced liar who had 'Real Housewives' star James Marchese arrested for a fight with his wife that never went down ... so says James in new lawsuit. 

James and Amber Marchese just filed suit against Virgin America and flight attendant Moriah Rosser, who the Marcheses claim lied to cops when she said she saw James choking Amber on the plane.

James and Amber claim in the docs Moriah straight-up told them she didn't like James after recognizing him from their show. After James fell asleep in his seat, the couple claims cops stormed the plane and cuffed James ... based on what they say Moriah falsely reported. 

We broke the story ... James was arrested for domestic violence in April, but had the charges against him dropped. He told us he'd be suing Virgin America ... and it looks like he made good on his promise -- now they're suing for major damages. 

Virgin America tells TMZ the lawsuit has no merit and it'll defend itself and Moriah in court.
