6/1/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0531_teresa_joe_giudice_tmzHard time hasn't taught Teresa and Joe Giudice a damn thing if you ask the state of NJ ... which says the 'Real Housewives' stars owe a ton of income tax.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Teresa was hit with a tax lien for $23,365 in February, just two months after she got sprung from prison. Of course, Joe started his 41-month prison stint in March ... but still managed to get nailed in April for $238,269 of unpaid taxes.

The Giudices' lawyer, James Leonard Jr., tells TMZ Joe and Teresa have set up a schedule to pay off the debt in full.

In a new promo for 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' ... Teresa promises she's leaving all her problems in the past. Ooops. Again. 


NeNe Leakes I'm Feelin' a Little Smokey

5/23/2016 7:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

NeNe Leakes is no stand-up comic ... she's also no singer, although she got the chance of a lifetime singing with his awesomeness, Smokey Robinson.

Nene hit up Johnny Gill's 50th birthday bash Sunday night at a Bel-Air mansion, where Smokey made a surprise appearance and dueted with Jeffrey Osborne. And they sang the 'Woo Woo' song no less!

Smokey and Jeffrey goaded NeNe to come up and join, but she was too shy so the mountain went to Mohammed. She sang the chorus and, well, she's great on 'Real Housewives.'

Kim Zolciak My Daughter's Face Is No Piece Of Work

5/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0520_Kim-Zolciak_instagramKim Zolciak is coming to her daughter's defense, denying rumors surrounding 19-year-old Brielle's face in a family vacay photo.

Kim tells TMZ ... Brielle's face has NOT been under a scalpel, and the ONLY work she's had are the lip fillers she got during a mother-daughter trip last year.

Kim deleted the IG pic with Brielle and hubby Kroy Biermann after trolls went off about Brielle's face ... which mom insists only looks different because of the angle, and Brielle's lack of eye makeup.  

In her defense, Brielle does look a little different in this video from the same night.

Exclusive Details


'Real Housewives of NY' star Carole Radziwill's boyfriend is recovering after he was lucky enough to walk away from a small plane crash.

Adam Kenworthy and his 65-year-old dad -- who was flying the plane -- made a crash landing Thursday in Iowa. Law enforcement tells TMZ ... Adam's father reported engine problems shortly before the plane went down on a hillside.

5/19/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Kandi Burruss celebrated the big 4-0 in grandiose fashion ... thanks to her VERY generous hubbie.

Todd Tucker presented his 'RHOA' wife with a $20k diamond encrusted Rolex. And that was just the beginning ... Todd shut down the ritzy DS17 Lounge for a surprise party with family and friends, including reality stars Tiny HarrisToya Wright and the cast of 'Love & Hip Hop' and 'RHOA.'

We're told Todd's also taking Kandi and her family and friends down to the Bahamas.



Phaedra Parks Son's 6th Bday Bash Family's All Here Except ...

5/18/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0517_phaedra_parks_son_party_launch'RHOA' star Phaedra Parks put her broken marriage with Apollo Nida aside to make sure the entire family was together for their son Ayden's 'TMNT'-themed 6th birthday party, minus Apollo, of course.

Phaedra rented out Stars & Strikes bowling alley over the weekend in ATL, and the guest list was stacked -- 100 of Ayden's closest friends and family, including Apollo's mom. Phaedra's 'RHOA' co-star, Porsha Williams, also showed.

Apollo wasn't there since he's serving 8 years for bank fraud, but Ayden still looked like he had the time of his life, which isn't really hard when you're turning 6 and laser tagging.

Phaedra might've lost some cool mom points in the gift department. She followed up last year's tricked out Mercedes SUV with a $50k deposit into his college savings account.

Good thing Ayden's got 100 more presents to unwrap!

'RHONJ' Star Won't Face Charges In Dom. Violence Case

5/15/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

042016-james-marchese-sub-3Former 'Real Housewives' star James Marchese will NOT face domestic violence charges for an alleged altercation with his wife. 

As TMZ reported, the reality star was busted last month for fighting with his wife, Amber, on a plane. Marchese was immediately bailed out by Amber. Outside the jail, he told us it was a huge misunderstanding. 

Sources familiar with the case tell us the L.A. City Attorney will conduct an informal office hearing where the couple will be counseled so this sort of thing doesn't happen again. 

No word yet on whether Marchese still plans to sue Virgin America, as he hinted he would.

DMX I Don't Open for 'Real Housewives' ... Especially at Gay Clubs!

5/11/2016 1:02 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0511_dmx_Erika-Jayne_tmzDMX is pissed off he's getting billed as the opener for 'RHBH' star Erika Jayne at a gay club -- even though he is set to perform before her in a Miami club that does cater to gay crowds on some nights.

Here's the deal ... X has a gig at HOUSE Nightclub on Saturday -- but so does Erika. There have been reports describing her as the headliner, which doesn't sit well with the legendary rapper.

Mark Lowe, the owner of HOUSE, says it's all a misunderstanding. He tells TMZ ... DMX and Erika's shows are 2 separate events, requiring different tickets for admission. X has the club from 5-11 PM -- and once his crowd exits, Erika takes over from 11-5 AM.

Lowe says it's "insulting" anyone would make it seem like DMX is an opening act.

For the record, Erika has a lot of gay fans, but her show is not being promoted as a gay event. HOUSE has LGBT nights, but Saturday isn't one of them. BTW, X's show is sold out -- Erika's isn't yet.

And DMX ... he gets to keep his streak going ... 

Kim Richards Jail Bound For Shoplifting Case

4/29/2016 9:14 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


1:55 PM PST -- A rep for Kim showed up in court and conceded Kim had no proof she'd made progress in completing her AA classes or community service. The judge withdrew the warrant and set a probation violation hearing for June 3. The judge could throw Kim in jail after the hearing if he determines she didn't make a sufficient dent in the classes or community service.

9:40 AM PST -- The bench warrant has now been signed by a judge. Bail was set at $26,000.


Kim Richards is staring down an arrest warrant in her shoplifting case because she's ditching her AA classes ... as far as the court is concerned, anyway.

TMZ has learned the judge is about to issue a warrant for the 'RHOBH' star. Our sources say Kim never turned in documentation to prove she's attended the number of AA classes ordered in her plea deal.

Kim's been struggling in all her cases. As we've reported ... the judge in her Beverly Hills arrest already scolded her for not doing community labor, and shot down her foot injury excuse.

She's supposed to do a total of 52 AA classes and 30 days community labor for the shoplifting arrest -- but if she doesn't present some proof, STAT ... she'll be doing jail time.

'O.C. Housewives' Vicki I Learned My Lesson ... I'll Never ATV Again

4/23/2016 2:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"O.C. Housewives" star Vicki Gunvalson is just fine staying on two feet and off of four wheels after a serious ATV crash.

Vicki spoke with our photog Friday at LAX and made one thing VERY clear ... she has no plans to hop back on a bike any time soon. In fact, Vicki says the ride was only a bucket list item ... so there's probably no chance she'll fall back on her word to stay off the things. 

TMZ broke the story, Vicki and Tamra Barney were ATV'ing in California earlier this month when they lost control of the vehicle they were driving. Both women were hospitalized.

Glad to see she's OK. 


'RHONJ' Star James Marchese Arrested, Yanked Off Plane ... Allegedly Attacked Amber

4/20/2016 6:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Former 'Real Housewives' star James Marchese got busted for domestic violence after allegedly getting into a fight with his wife Amber on a plane, but he swears the cops and the airline got it all wrong.

Law enforcement sources tell us the ex-'RHONJ' stars had just boarded their Virgin America red-eye flight at LAX, and before they took off the airline called cops to report James for grabbing Amber by the throat and threatening to hurt her.

LAX PD officers responded and yanked James off the plane. He was booked for felony domestic violence, but Amber immediately showed up at the police station to help bail him out.

We got video of the couple leaving the station ... walking hand in hand. James played it off like nothing happened on the plane, and more than hinted he's taking legal action -- "I guess Virgin Atlantic wanted to take care of my kid's scholarship fund."


Mohamed Hadid Lisa Vanderpump Is Dead To Me!!!

4/15/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0414-mohammad-hadid-lisa-vanderpump-tmz-01Lisa Vanderpump's calling BS on Mohamed Hadid's kids suffering from Lyme disease, and her accusation is having major repercussions for the 'Real Housewives' shoots.

Sources tell TMZ Lisa and Mohamed's 20 year friendship came to an abrupt end when Vanderpump, for the umpteenth time, asked about his kids, Bella and Anwar, and their Lyme disease. We're told Hadid was embarrassed because Lisa asked while taping at dinner with friends.

Sources close to the situation tell us Hadid will be cordial during shoots, but ANY attempt to renew the friendship -- even for the show -- is out of the question, as far as he's concerned. 

We're told Lisa's husband, Ken, even tried to patch things up, but Hadid's not budging ... and hasn't even been to any of Lisa's 3 restaurants since the drama.

Lucky for him it's a big city.

Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes We'll Ride Before We Die on Reality TV

4/6/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805_Kim-Zolciak_nene_leakes_bravo_tmzKim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are determined to take a road trip even if it kills them ... which is why they aren't giving up on their new reality TV project, and it looks like it's back on track. 

We're told Kim and NeNe are back in talks with Bravo, trying to work out a concept and scheduling for their "Road to Riches" project. The title is not set in stone, but the idea is the 2 of them on an Oprah/Gayle King-type journey.

One of the sticking points ... Kim doesn't want to be away from her 4 youngest kids for long stretches of time. 

The project's been on the back burner for months but now both are close to wrapping their other projects, so they're ready to roll.

The big question ... who drives?
