'RHONY' Star's Divorce Awarded $10k/Mo. But Good Luck Collecting

9/8/2016 2:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0907-Jules-Wainstein-tmz-02Jules Wainstein got some good news in divorce court Thursday -- her estranged husband has to fork over $10,000 per month, but he's already warning her he can't afford it. 

The 'Real Housewives of NY' star and her ex, Michael, were in an NYC court when the judge ordered him to pay the $10k for spousal and child support. She had requested $25k a month.

Michael immediately cried poverty -- his attorney says his client doesn't have any income and his credit cards have been frozen ... so he doesn't think he'll be able to make the payments.

The judge wasn't swayed. First payment's due Sept. 30. 

As for custody -- both children will stay with Jules at least until the nasty divorce battle plays out.

EXCLUSIVE

0824-kim-richards-tmz-02Kim Richards narrowly avoided jail after blowing off her community service and AA meetings in her shoplifting case.

Kim's lawyers were in court Wednesday for a probation violation hearing ... this after she missed the deadline for completing 30 days of community service and 52 AA sessions.  

Her lawyers presented proof that Kim belatedly did most of her community service and is now up to date on AA meetings, so the judge cut her a break.

Kim stays on probation and everything must be completed by the next hearing in November.

Kim was convicted of shoplifting for stealing $600 worth of stuff from Target.

0819_kelly_dodd_mansion_launchKelly Meza-Dodd from 'Real Housewives of Orange County' is getting rid of some prime OC real estate ... and doing some high-priced flipping in the process.

Kelly's listed her 4 bedroom, 4 bath oceanside home in Newport Beach for $6.25 million. The pad is a stone's throw from Big Corona Beach and in pristine condition, hence the steep price.

Kelly and her husband bought it just a year ago for $3.575 mil, but they've sunk some dough into it ... doing a bunch of renovations. Check out what they've done to the 4,370 sq. feet of the place.

EXCLUSIVE

0816-kenya-moore-dj-harvard-INSTAGRAm-01Kenya Moore is making sure a Howard University student who says she got stiffed by her summer job ... has the cash she needs to keep hitting the books.

The 'RHOA' star tells us she started a crowdfunding page for De'Juae Leathers, who's supposed to be a sophomore this year, but can't fork over the dough for tuition. 

De'Juae, who's known Kenya for 5 years, is already on financial aid and scored what she thought was a paid summer internship with an ambassador for an African nation. But De'Juae says the guy hasn't cut her a paycheck.

So far, more than a quarter of Kenya's $4,270 goal on the GoFundMe page has been raised. Kenya says she's matching every dollar, so if the goal's met by Thursday's deadline, De'Juae will have enough money for next semester.

You'll recall Kenya cut a check in 2014 for $20k for Detroit Public Schools Foundation ... so it's clear education's important to her, and she's good for it

Phaedra Parks 'Bomb' Suspect/Friend Ordered to Keep His Distance

EXCLUSIVE

0815-phaedra-parks-TMZ-01It doesn't matter if Phaedra Parks is longtime pals with the guy accused of threatening her with a bomb ... a judge says he still has to stay away from her. 

Terence Cook, best known as the rapper, Drama ... was released on a $25,000 bond last week with strict conditions while he's out of jail -- including not coming within 200 yards of Phaedra, her office or her crew. He also has to wear an ankle monitor, and get a mental evaluation.

The tight leash comes after Phaedra told TMZ ... Drama is an old friend and former client of hers, and the whole "bomb" incident was a huge misunderstanding. She says Drama was dropping off his mixtape, not a bomb. 

As we reported, he was arrested back in July for the alleged bomb threat at Phaedra's office

Phaedra told us she was trying to help Drama get legal assistance. We've reached out to her, but no word back yet.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star and estranged hubby Peter Thomas put their East Atlanta home up for sale late last month and it's already in escrow ... almost for the full asking price of $699k. By metropolitan standards, it's a bargain ... 4 bedrooms, 5 baths.

EXCLUSIVE

0805-kim-kyle-richards-baby-shower-INSTAGRAM-TWITTER-01Kyle and Kim Richards are still on good terms, and Kim's daughter also seems to have made up with her ... at least based on the baby shower Kyle just threw.

We're told Kyle threw niece Brooke Wiederhorn the party Thursday at her Bel-Air home. While our sources tell us 'RHOBH' cameras weren't there, several cast members were present including Faye Resnick and Camille Grammer.

As we previously reported, Yolanda Foster is off the show, and she was not at the party. Perhaps it's a clue to who's sticking around for season 7.

Brooke and her husband, Thayer, are expecting their first kid in the fall. You'll recall Brooke was pissed at her mom, Kim, after she got wasted and went M.I.A. from her 2015 wedding in Cabo. 

They've all come a long way.

Phaedra Parks 'Bomb' Suspect Not a Threat ... He Was Racially Profiled

8/3/2016 10:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0803-parks-drama-tmz-youtube-01Phaedra Parks is standing up for the rapper who got busted for threatening to blow up her office, and believes he was racially profiled by someone in her office building. 

Phaedra tells TMZ she considers Drama a good friend, and knew he was going to come by her office last week to drop off his new CD. The 'Real Housewives' star says things started going south though when Drama went to the wrong floor.

According to Phaedra ... Drama demanded to see her, and when the receptionist asked him to leave -- because he wasn't in Phaedra's office -- he refused, and she called security. Here's where it really gets messy.

We spoke to Drama's mother, who says her son told the guard, "I have a bomb CD. It's about to blow up." She says the security guard followed up by asking if he had anything else about to blow up -- and Drama replied, "I got that bomb ass CD in the car" ... referring to a package full of CDs in his vehicle.

Moments later cops descended on the building and evacuated the place. Phaedra thinks whoever called the police just saw a guy in a white t-shirt and baggy pants with gold teeth ... and assumed the worst.

A video posted by 🍦👅💦🍭 (@c0ntrolla) on

She admits Drama had a poor choice of words, but says that's just the way he speaks -- plus, he thought he was having an innocent convo about his music.

Drama was booked for making terroristic threats, and is being held without bail. Phaedra says she spoke to him on Tuesday and is referring him to a criminal attorney.

Phaedra Parks Bombing Suspect Is Former Client

EXCLUSIVE

0728-phaedra-parks-TMZ-02Phaedra Parks has history with the man who allegedly threatened to blow up her law office, because she was once his manager and lawyer ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to Terrence Cook -- aka Drama -- tell us Phaedra managed his music career back in 2000 when he was an up-and-coming rapper in Atlanta.

She was also his lawyer in a 2003 robbery case before she was removed as counsel. Cook served 12 years in prison for that case.

0728-phaedra-parks-man-arrested-cook-in-custody-TWITTER-03We're told after Cook was released from prison in 2015 ... he told friends he was going to Miami to meet up with Phaedra and shoot an episode of 'Real Housewives.' While in Miami, we're told he got seriously injured in a skydiving accident, and has been on the mend since.

Sources close to Cook say he blamed Phaedra for his downfall in life ... including his long prison term, defunct rap career, and skydiving injury. For the record, Bravo says Cook was never invited to shoot a 'Housewives' episode.

As we previously reported -- Cook was arrested Thursday morning when he showed up to what he thought was Phaedra's law office claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg. Cops said he had an envelope and book, but determined there was no bomb.
