Jill Zarin's Husband Bobby Dead at 71 After Cancer Battle

1/14/2018 8:01 AM PST
Breaking News

Bobby Zarin, the husband of Jill Zarin, has died after a long battle with cancer.

The "Real Housewives of New York" star posted a statement, saying the family was devastated.  Bobby died Saturday surrounded by his family.

Bobby battled cancer for years. He was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2009 and underwent radiation treatment -- eventually having his thyroid removed.

In 2016, Bobby was diagnosed with a brain tumor. The pic (below) is the last one taken of the 2 of them out at Andy Cohen's show last June when she was a guest.

There will be a service Monday.

Bobby was 71. RIP 

Joe Giudice His New Prison's Like a 4-Star Resort ... Brunch & Yoga Included

1/1/2018 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Joe Giudice has a pretty cush prison stay ahead of him while he's locked up in Pennsylvania -- the place is like a damn resort ... even though it's got its own "deal breakers."

Like we told you, Joe was transferred from a federal prison in Fort Dix, New Jersey last month to a low security correctional facility in Allenwood, PA. Now, TMZ has learned exactly what's in store for him there -- and we gotta say ... it sounds nice for the pen. 

First off, Joe gets access to a wide variety of food and products. He can buy stuff like butter pecan ice cream, a mackerel fillet, Thai tuna steak, and cappuccinos. 

He can also buy Neutrogena shampoo, an MP3 player, and Skullcandy earbuds -- like we said, luxury living. If that doesn't convince ya, consider he also gets brunch every weekend, and can participate in yoga, fitness classes, bocce ball and even flag football.

There are some ground rules, though. He's only allowed 5 guests at a time per visit -- and none of them can wear makeup or anything sexy. Sorry, Teresa ... save it for Mexico.

Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky Cleaned Out In Million Dollar Jewelry Heist

12/30/2017 1:00 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky were cleaned out of all their jewelry -- many of the pieces extremely sentimental and irreplaceable -- and the burglars' haul was north of a million dollars.

Law enforcement and family sources tell TMZ, Wednesday's break-in was a professional job ... the thieves knew exactly how to break in without being detected and where to go once inside. The burglars used a ladder to climb to a second story balcony, broke a window and beelined it for the 2 master bedroom closets. Nothing else in their Encino home -- which they bought in October - was disturbed.

TMZ broke the story of the break-in and at the time we knew burglars stole $150,000 worth of watches Mauricio had in his closet. One watch was given to him by his late grandfather. As for Kyle ... burglars took everything but the few items she took to Aspen, where the family was vacationing.

Among the pieces stolen ... her gold wedding band with the inscription, "Mauricio forever." The burglars also took the $100k earrings Mauricio got Kyle for their 20th anniversary last year. Andy Cohen actually presented Kyle with the earrings on "Watch What Happens Live."

Burglars also took all her handbags, including Birkins and Chanels. Some of the items were given to Kyle by her late mom and she wanted to give them to her daughters, but now they're gone.

Cops have told the family they do not believe this was an inside job. There are some similarities between this burglary and the hits on the homes of Mariah Carey and Yasiel Puig, but cops have not yet made an official connection.

We're told this was a freak event where burglars were able to get in and out undetected, because the house has a state-of-the-art security system which can be turned on remotely, but there was a misunderstanding and it was not turned on.  

The family also has 3 very big dogs -- one of which is a 100 lb. German Shepherd -- but they were finishing a 5-week obedience course. And there's a surveillance system with multiple cameras, but because of renovations it was turned off.

We're told there is now an armed guard firmly planted on the property.

No one has been apprehended and it's unclear if cops have any suspects.

Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky Latest Celebs Hit in Home Burglary

12/28/2017 11:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards and Mauricio Umansky are the latest victims of celebrity break-ins ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the house was empty Wednesday night -- the family went to Aspen the day before. The burglar or burglars made their way in by breaking a window and stole some expensive items. Our law enforcement sources say the thieves made off with more than a million dollars in jewelry, including $150,000 worth of watches owned by Mauricio. Kyle's jewelry was in a lock box. We don't know if they got into that. The housekeeper discovered the break-in.

Kyle and her real estate mogul hubby bought the Encino home in October for $8.2 million and were in the middle of renovations.  

We're told there is a security system but it was not on when burglars entered. Cops do know the burglary occurred at around 1:15 AM because a closet sensor inside the home was triggered by the burglars.

The home -- once owned by Motown legend Smokey Robinson -- has a number of surveillance cameras, so cops are hopeful it will help them nab the culprits.

One family source tells TMZ they suspect it could be an inside job because a number of people had access during the construction. We're also told the burglars did not ransack the house and knew exactly where they would find the jewelry. 

'Real Housewives' Alum Carlton Gebbia Sued for Allegedly Attacking Housekeeper

12/27/2017 3:53 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' alum Carlton Gebbia mopped the floor with her housekeeper, and the maid's now taking her to court ... and she says Gebbia even tried to kill herself.

The housekeeper -- referred to in the lawsuit as Jane Doe -- claims she was hired by Gebbia back in 2011 and toiled for 6 years as a housekeeper/nanny/chauffeur/grocery shopper/assistant.

Jane Doe claims Gebbia was often under the influence of alcohol and repeated physically, verbally and emotionally abusing her, including slapping her. She says 4 months ago, without provocation, a drunken Gebbia attacked her at her Bev Hills home.

She says the trigger was when Jane Doe texted Carlton's husband, David, and said Carlton had broken the TV in the movie room with a baseball bat. Jane Doe says when she tried to calm Carlton down, she became enraged, yelled at her and pushed her so hard, she fell against the door.

She says she was badly injured and was given 2 weeks off. She says the following month, she was fired.

Even more interesting ... the maid says over the last 6 years, Gebbia attempted to harm herself ... she mentions one incident in which she allegedly threw herself off the second story of her home.

We've reached out to Carlton's rep ... who said, "No comment."

Kim Zolciak Don't Renew Vows for Romance ... Try Something Sexier!!!

12/26/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak-Biermann says renewing your wedding vows isn't the spark for a fizzled out relationship -- but if that's what you're aiming for ... she's got a suggestion.

We got Kim and her hubby, Kroy, at LAX and asked if they recommend married couples renew their vows -- like they did this past spring -- to reignite romance. 

Sounds like Kim and Kroy didn't say 'I do' again to rekindle lost passion. According to her ... look in the women's wear department for a fix to that problem.

Phaedra Parks Selling Atlanta Crib for $1.195 Million

12/20/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is having a good ole fashioned French provincial sale ... which has less to do with 18th Century Paree, than it does 21st Century ATL.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star's unloading her 4 bedroom, 6 bath home which she bough in 2013 for $845k. Phaedra could be turning a nice profit since she's listed it for $1.195 million.

That's the bargain price, too -- she initially put it on the market in July for $1.499 mil.

The pad has a pool, nice yard and a sweet covered patio area for chilling through hot ATL summers. As for why Phaedra's bolting -- we're told she has another home in Atlanta.

So, this beautiful spread was just her backup. Nice.

Kim Richards 450 Hours Later ... Community Service All Done!

12/19/2017 12:23 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards is 1 step closer to shutting the book on her Beverly Hills rampage case, 'cause she just checked off the last thing a judge wanted from her ... 450 hours of her time.

Kim's lawyer was in court Tuesday and presented proof that the ex-'Real Housewife' completed her required 450 hours of community service for allegedly kicking a cop during a drunken episode at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2015.

As we reported ... Kim was originally sentenced to 30 days of labor, but prosecutors cut her break and pushed for a softer sentence ... AA classes and community service.

Her team had already provided proof of enrollment for AA, but she still had about 270 hours of community service hanging over her head this past September. Looks like she picked up the pace since then.

It's been a long haul for Kim, but she's almost out of the woods for this one. She's got about a year or so left of probation ... but the courtroom checklist is complete!

Claudia Jordan Roethlisberger Should Be In Jail ... 'Very Questionable'

12/17/2017 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Claudia Jordan's taking a serious shot at Ben Roethlisberger before his Steelers take on her Patriots this Sunday ... pointing to past sexual assault allegations against the QB.

"Steelers, your quarterback is very questionable. He should be in jail," Claudia told TMZ Sports outside Delilah in L.A.

Remember -- Big Ben was accused of sexual assault by two separate women in 2008 and 2010 ...  but no criminal charges were brought against him in either case.

But, the former 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star clearly ain't buying Roethlisberger's innocence.

Jordan also took a parting shot at all the Steelers -- saying their 1-point win over the Ravens last weekend proves they ain't on the Pats' level.

Phaedra Parks Return to 'RHOA'? Nah, It Made Me Sick!!!

12/10/2017 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is in recovery from the drama-filled life she was leading while shooting "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... and it doesn't sound like there's any chance she'll go back.

Phaedra was at LAX when we asked about her post-'RHOA' life. She was absolutely beaming, and while she doesn't rule out a return ... she makes a pretty solid case for staying the hell away. Plus, she just signed with Wilhelmina Models.

Phaedra gives props to her old co-stars, and every woman on reality TV -- 'cause as she puts it ... real housewifin' ain't easy, y'all!

We broke the story ... Phaedra was pissed at 'RHOA' producers for firing her in May, and said she was getting harassed online because of it. Someone's definitely moved on, happily. 

Hallelujah!

Mohamed Hadid Russia's Olympic Ban: 'Best Thing That Happened'

12/10/2017 12:15 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Russia's ban from the 2018 Winter Olympics is the "best thing that happened" to the games ... so says Mohamed Hadid, who tells TMZ Sports it's the most effective way to keep athletes clean.

We spoke with the ex-speed skiier -- who represented Jordan in the 1992 games -- about the International Olympic Committee dropping the hammer on Russia earlier this week, and Hadid says athletes will learn their lesson to prevent doping in the future.

Bonus -- we did some digging and found a pic of Mohamed from the '92 games ... and we must say, the dude looks glorious.

Cynthia Bailey on L.A. Fires Hope You're Safe, Chrissy Here's What I'd Grab If I Were You

12/7/2017 8:32 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and Chrissy Teigen are alike in a lot of ways -- 'cause they'd both be super moms in an emergency fire situation.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star at LAX and briefed her on the latest news about the L.A. fires and people evacuating -- like Chrissy, for example.

We asked Cynthia what she would take in a hot second, were she in that same crisis. Turns out her priorities line up pretty closely with her pal Chrissy -- with a few exceptions.

Cynthia has 2 items on her list Chrissy left behind. Not that there's anything wrong with Oreos. 

'RHOBH' Star Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky Goodbye, Bel-Air Hello, San Fernando Valley!!!

11/30/2017 4:59 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards and super real estate agent Mauricio Umansky want to get the heck outta Bel-Air -- makes sense because she's a Bev Hills housewife after all -- so she's giving folks a couple options to take over her pad.

The 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star has put her North Bel-Air mansion up for sale OR lease -- creating options for prospective buyers or renters. If you're in it for the long haul, the price is $6.995 mil ... tenants gotta pay $50k/month.  

The 7 bed, 8 bath mammoth home is pretty much the definition of luxury, if that's your thing. It's got a private home theater, a pool and spa, a lighted multi-purpose sports court, a chef-style kitchen, marble fireplace, a wet bar and on and on. In other words, it's nice.

BTW, Kyle and Mauricio just bought a new house in Encino ... so she's still not technically a Bev Hills housewife.

They kept it in the family, because their daughter, Farrah Aldjufrie, is the listing agent.
