Phaedra Parks Busting Out of Hiding After Divorce Drama

5/8/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is still legally married to Apollo Nida but that's not stopping her from dancing on couches at the club dressed in head-to-toe lingerie.

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" star hit up the Banco Lounge in Atlanta for celeb stylist Jeremy Haynes' birthday. As you may have guessed ... lots of skin.

"Basketball Wives LA" star Angel Love, "Married to Medicine" star Quad Lunceford, Toya Wright, Monyetta Shaw all showed face. Kenya Moore's ex-beau, Matt Jordan, was also front and center.

As we reported, Phaedra's divorce had been finalized back in November but a judge overturned it because Nida, who's behind bars, hadn't been properly served.

NeNe Leakes Close to Signing 'RHOA' Deal And Spinning Another

4/29/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes is inching closer to striking a deal for her return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... and it might lead to a starring role on a new show.

Sources close to production tell us ... NeNe's ready to come back for season 10 of 'RHOA' but hasn't signed the paperwork yet. We're told Bravo's trying to sweeten the deal by working with her on a spin-off ... à la Kim Zolciak's "Don't Be Tardy."

There's also the matter of money. We know NeNe wants to be paid as much as, if not more than, Kim. Our sources say Leakes will only return to 'RHOA' as a part-time cast member. Once again ... just like Kim.

Season 10 is about to be amazing.

Kenya Moore Restraining Order Tossed Matt Jordan's Ducking Me

4/27/2017 1:59 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's ex-BF, Matt Jordan, no longer has to stay away from her because a judge tossed the restraining order when she couldn't find him to serve legal docs.

Kenya's temporary restraining order was dismissed Wednesday after she was a no-show at a hearing on the matter. Kenya's lawyer tells TMZ ... she only skipped court because she knew the judge would toss it once he heard Matt hadn't been served.

You'll recall ... Kenya said Matt was blowing up her phone 30 times a day and had also threatened her. The temporary restraining order required him to stay 200 yards away from Kenya. 

Her attorney says Kenya will refile for another protective order ... but she's gonna have to locate Matt eventually.

Phaedra Parks to Apollo Nida Let's REALLY Divorce Now But Don't Forget the Prenup!

4/27/2017 11:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks is facing a do-over in her divorce but still insists their prenup should block Apollo Nida from attempting to get alimony.

Phaedra filed docs in Georgia asking the court to enforce what she considers an ironclad prenup Apollo signed on October 23, 2009 ... 9 days before they got married.

In docs, obtained by TMZ, Phaedra says they both agreed to waive their right to alimony ... meaning he shouldn't get a dime in spousal support when the divorce is final. She also claims they agreed how to divide their assets when they signed on the dotted line.

Phaedra thinks it's simple -- the prenup should control who gets to keep what, and doesn't want to leave things up to the judge ... as Apollo requested.

And she really sticks it to him ... saying the fact his assets have plummeted is his own doing because of his criminal activity. Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.

TMZ broke the story ... a judge threw out Phaedra's final divorce judgment because he was concerned by a number of things -- including Phaedra intentionally misspelling Apollo's name in docs.

4/23/2017 11:56 AM PDT
Breaking News

One of Kim Zolciak's sons is in the hospital recovering from an operation after he was bitten by a dog this weekend. 

Kim posted a pic Sunday of 4-year-old Kash Kade Biermann in a hospital bed, with a pretty gnarly description. Apparently, he's been there since Saturday night after he was bitten by a dog ... which sent him to the operating room.

In the post, Kim says Kash suffered "traumatic injuries" and the operation lasted a couple hours. 

The whole family seems to be there by his side. Kim noted she'd be missing her guest spot on Andy Cohen's show Sunday night. 

Vicki Gunvalson Steal from Me? Yeah, Your Ass is Going to Jail!

4/23/2017 7:16 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The ex-employee Vicki Gunvalson claims she caught red-handed embezzling is going to be locked up soon enough ... if she gets her way.

We got the star of 'Real Housewives of Orange County' out Saturday night at Craig's with her squad -- who had A LOT to say about interracial dating btw -- before she launched into a rant about the guy she's labeling a crook.

We broke the story ... Vicki called cops after one of her new hires allegedly siphoned commissions from her biz, and there's an open investigation now. She's clearly gunning for prosecution.

Oh, and since Vicki's friends made a thing of it ... here's the drunken backstory on interracial dating.

Kim Zolciak All Systems Go for 'RHOA' Season 10!

4/20/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak's coming back to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' -- she's officially signed on to return this Fall ... TMZ has learned.

'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim will shoot for season 10, although we're told it'll be a limited role. The show wanted her back as a full-time cast member, but obligations to her other show, "Don't Be Tardy," only allowed her to sign for a part-time gig.

We're told NeNe Leakes hasn't signed on yet, though she's made it clear that IF she does return she should get more dough than Kim.

Here's the way it could work ... since Kim will only be part-time, if producers can convince NeNe to be a full-fledged cast member, they would pay her considerably more than Kim ... problem solved.

Scottie Pippen & Larsa Moving Forward with Divorce ... But It's Friendly

4/18/2017 12:06 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Scottie Pippen and Larsa have finally made a decision on the state of their marriage -- and will move forward with the divorce ... TMZ Sports has learned. 

The good news ... the NBA legend and the former 'Real Housewives' star are on really good terms and have vowed to remain friends after the split.

We broke the story ... Scottie filed divorce docs back in October after 19 years of marriage. The two have 4 kids together.

But the two spent months trying to work things out and just last week they traveled to Universal Orlando Resort as a family.

In the end, the two sides decided it's just not working and the best move is to split. We're told both Scottie and Larsa have vowed to remain friends and co-parent their kids.

Of course, the couple had issues in the past -- but, as one source put it, "Couples argue. It never got physical."

The good news ... both should do well on the dating scene. Especially Larsa. See proof below.

Kenya Moore's Ex-BF Gets Cold Shoulder from 'RHOA' Reunion

3/31/2017 12:30 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Even 'RHOA' producers are showing Kenya Moore's ex-boyfriend the door -- we've learned Matt Jordan didn't get an invite to the reunion episode.

Matt and Kenya's drama was a staple of the latest season, but we're told producers ultimately thought he was too violent to bring back. Not to mention the severe awkwardness that would have ensued during the taping a couple weeks ago.

We broke the story ... Kenya says Matt's been harassing her for months and, in fact, just got a temporary restraining order against him. He now has to stay 200 yards away.

Jordan infamously punched a driver while cameras were rolling during the previous season, so it seems he's worn out his welcome ... on several fronts.

Claudia Jordan Black People Don't Watch Pregnant Giraffes

3/31/2017 7:03 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Apologies to April the Giraffe, but Claudia Jordan and all other black people just don't care if she ever gives birth ... at least that's what Claudia thinks.

The former 'Real Housewife' couldn't believe it when we told her what an Internet sensation the knocked up giraffe has become. Seriously, we had to break it down for her outside Catch, and she immediately dropped some serious eye rolls before blaming this on a particular group of people.

And she says this animal obsession thing goes way beyond giraffes.

BTW ... the owner of the NY animal park said this week "all signs are a go" April to pop ... but we've heard that before.

Exclusive Details

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Kenya Moore says she's had to dodge up to 30 phone calls a day from her ex-BF, Matt Jordan, so she went to court to get protection.

In legal docs, Kenya says Matt threatened her last week, telling a mutual friend ... "she'd get what she deserves" after she blocked his harassing calls.

The couple broke up after a nightmare vacation last year in Mexico, which Kenya mentions in her request for a restraining order. She adds Matt kicked in a hotel door and threw her suitcase in the driveway after they got back.

Last week, she told us things haven't gotten any better since last summer.

The judge granted her the restraining order which requires Matt to stay 200 yards away from Kenya, and stop all harassing or intimidating behavior toward her or her family.

As we've reported ... Matt has a long rap sheet that includes 4 arrests in the last year alone. 

Phaedra Parks & Apollo Nida Judge Says ... Not So Fast, You're Still Married!!!

3/24/2017 1:02 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra's rep Steve Honig tells us, "It’s very confusing why a man who is engaged and enjoys frequent visits with his fiancée would work so aggressively to avoid ending his marriage."

"Regardless, Phaedra is reviewing her options with her attorney to determine the most efficient path toward ending this marriage so she can move forward and focus on raising strong, healthy and happy children.”Phaedra Parks' ride in the single lane has come to a screeching halt -- a judge tossed out her divorce judgment because it was unfair to Apollo Nida.

The judge said he was troubled by a number of things, including Phaedra "intentionally misspelling the parties names." 

In the docs -- obtained by TMZ -- hizzoner also said he was troubled Apollo was given the impression he would attend future divorce hearings from prison, which was always out of the question.

Apollo was also not informed of the final hearing or served with docs notifying him the divorce was final.

So, back to the drawing board.

NeNe Leakes My Contract's Gotta Be Richer than Kim's

3/24/2017 9:52 AM PDT

NeNe Leakes knows 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' producers would never say how much money Kim Zolciak is getting for her comeback, but NeNe thinks it's gotta be less than her booty.

We got NeNe at LAX Thursday where she told us there's a reason she should get a bigger check. It's funny ... Kim had her own reasons for thinking she's a bigger draw.

As we previously reported ... negotiations are underway for both NeNe and Kim to return as full-time cast members on season 10. It already seems like it's gonna be worth it.
