Joanna Krupa & Brandi Glanville Settle Smelly Vagina Lawsuit

8/1/2017 1:45 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:45 PM PT -- It appears part of the settlement includes Brandi making a public mea culpa. She just released this statement to TMZ ... "I want to apologize to Joanna Krupa for the statements I have made about her. I regret ever making such statements about Joanna Krupa; I also certainly never intended my statements to be taken so seriously and out of proportion."

She added, "I apologize as I never wanted my statements to affect Joanna Krupa's reputation and I wish her nothing but continued success in life."

The big stink is over -- Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville struck a settlement in the infamous smelly vagina lawsuit ... TMZ has learned.

We just got a hold of new docs filed Tuesday confirming both sides have reached a "full and final settlement." Joanna's now officially withdrawing her defamation suit against Brandi.

Sounds like there was a financial settlement, but the terms are confidential.

As we reported ... the beef started in 2013 when Brandi -- while appearing on "Watch What Happens Live" -- claimed she'd heard from a friend that Joanna's lady parts smelled.

Brandi said it a second time ... prompting the defamation suit. Joanna's estranged husband even testified recently ... her vajayjay's "better than any other woman in the world."

Case closed.

NeNe Leakes & Cynthia Bailey Here's The Truth About Kim vs. Kenya ... Our Truth, Anyway

7/31/2017 4:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes are not down with fake news, and they think that's what Kim Zolciak's pushing when it comes to her beef with Kenya Moore.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' duo at LAX ... and our photog peppered them about what really happened to make Kim charge at Kenya while shooting last week. 

You'll recall Kim went nuclear ... thinking Kenya brought up Kim's "injured son" during some intense trash talking. So, was Kim justified? Well, there's Cynthia and NeNe's version of events. And then there's Kim's.

Anyone smell another Kim rant coming?

Joanna Krupa's Ex I Swear, Under Oath ... 'Her Vagina Smells Amazing'

7/30/2017 2:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joanna Krupa's vagina is in a league of its own when it comes to scent ... according to her estranged husband, who's defending her against Brandi Glanville.

Romain Zago dropped the sweet, sweet compliment earlier this month during a deposition in the now-infamous smelly vagina legal battle between Joanna and Brandi.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Romain told Brandi's attorney -- "If you want to know the answer to this stupid comments from your client, (Joanna's) vagina smells amazing. And I swear on God, Jesus, my father, my brothers."

Brandi's lawyer asked Romain if Joanna smells better or the same as the other women -- and he said, "Better than any other woman in the world." Ringing endorsement, for sure.

Romain also accused Brandi of being a horrendous bully who damaged his marriage.

Joanna filed to divorce him just 4 days before the deposition, and he STILL testified pro vajayjay!

Who-ha, indeed!

Ex-'RHONJ' Star Lauren Manzo's Salon Avoids Full Blown Fire By A Hair

7/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The hair salon co-owned by Caroline Manzo's daughter narrowly escaped going up in flames when an electrical fire broke out in the basement ... TMZ has learned.

Lauren Manzo's Westchester, NY branch of Full Blown -- co-owned with her pal, Lia Cagliostro -- filled with heavy black smoke last weekend while customers were mid-styling. Lia tells us the only warning they had was flickering lights. She thought it was just a blown fuse, but then everything went dark in the smoke cloud.

Firefighters battled for hours, and everyone got out safely. The salon itself wasn't as lucky -- even though firefighters beat back flames, there was severe water damage from fire hoses. Lia says they had to trash all their hairdryers, brushes and clips ... which reeked of smoke. 

The building still doesn't have power, and will need rewiring, but they're planning to reopen next week.

In the meantime, their NJ branch, formerly seen on 'RHONJ,' is still fully blowing ... hair.

Kim Zolciak Attacks Kenya Moore ... Nobody Talks Crap About My Kids!

7/24/2017 7:39 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak raged out on Kenya Moore because she thought Kenya said something about her son, who was horribly injured by a dog bite -- and it took several cast members to hold her back.

Multiple 'RHOA' production sources tell us Kim went all Mama Bear while they were shooting over the weekend at a home in Atlanta. We're told Kenya and Kim were throwing shade as soon as they saw each other -- but when things got personal, it got out of hand.

Kim made comments about Kenya's new marriage being fake ... and Kenya fired back that Kim had pimped out her daughter to get John Legend tickets. Everyone we spoke to agrees to that much, but here's where it gets messy.

We're told Kim thinks Kenya said the Legend tix were for "your injured son." Others in the house say they never heard Kenya say the son part. Doesn't matter ... Kim was convinced and lost it ... rushing at Kenya, knocking over and breaking glasses on the way.

Cast members and production staff grabbed Kim and calmed the situation. We're told Kim immediately bounced, and is genuinely pissed -- not just "for the show" drama ... like last season.

Bethenny Frankel Pay Up, eBay Or Pull My Ad!!!

7/19/2017 6:34 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel never signed off on being in a commercial for eBay, but they went ahead and aired it anyway ... according to new legal docs.

Frankel's camp claims she was in talks with eBay and an ad agency about running an ad featuring clips from last season's 'Real Housewives of New York' ... but no deal was ever struck. However, the commercial still went live on "multiple media outlets" last week ... according to the docs.

So, Frankel fired off a cease and desist letter to eBay demanding they pay up for using her name and likeness or yank the ad. And she says even if they pull the spot immediately, they'll still owe her for the week it aired.

As for the ad -- it's a spoof featuring fellow 'RHONY' star Dorinda Medley ... who's apparently totally cool with being in it.

Not the same handbag as everyone else!! 😂 thank you for this @eBay @bethennyfrankel #wow #didyoucheckebay?!

Phaedra Parks & Apollo Nida Strike Divorce Settlement He Gets Phone Calls with Kids

7/11/2017 1:22 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida's long, drawn-out divorce case is finally over ... they've reached a settlement that includes a parenting plan.

You'll recall the huge hang-ups were spousal support and how they'd split property. She was adamant they had an ironclad prenup but he wanted the judge to toss it out. The agreement is confidential so it's unclear who got what.

They also struck a custody agreement -- they'll share joint legal custody and Phaedra will have primary physical custody. Makes sense -- Apollo's serving prison time for money fraud.

As part of the custody arrangement, Apollo gets weekly phone calls with their 2 kids.

Brandi Glanville Quit Making a Stink, Joanna!! 'Smelly Vagina' Just Part of the Deal

7/6/2017 2:43 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brandi Glanville had carte blanche to criticize or poke fun at Joanna Krupa's genitals ... at least that's what Brandi claimed under oath.

Brandi was deposed in the infamous smelly vagina lawsuit filed by Joanna -- and told Joanna's lawyer ... she "didn't say anything that I knew to be false." You'll recall ... Brandi made the vajayjay claim during a 2015 'Watch What Happens Live' appearance.

According to the depo transcript, obtained by TMZ, Brandi also said you get what you sign up for when you're on a reality show. Joanna's lawyer asked, "Do you think that means you can say things like her pu**y smells?" Glanville replied, "Well, yeah."

Brandi also reiterated her claim the 'Housewives' contract bars cast members from suing each other. She insists being on the show means dealing with "the good, the bad and the ugly that comes along with it."

She wants the court to toss Joanna's defamation suit like it's day-old fish.

'RHOA' Show Gives Kenya Ultimatum Your Husband or Your Job

7/6/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's facing an impossible situation -- put her extremely reluctant husband on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' or get fired from the show.

Production sources tell us, producers have told Kenya the only way she'll survive on the show is if they can chronicle her relationship with husband Marc Daly. The problem ... former banker Marc doesn't want on the show, because he has big problems with the way 'RHOA' portrays black men.

We're told Kenya has argued the show hired her, not her husband. There's no mention of him in her contract. What's more, she told producers she's waited 46 years for a loving relationship which she now has, and doesn't want to jeopardize it.

Our sources say her plea has fallen on deaf ears. We're told producers have essentially given her an ultimatum -- either get Marc on the show or she'll be phased out.

There's one other complication. We know Kenya wants to get pregnant and is undergoing IVF treatments, and stress decreases the likelihood of success.  And she's made it clear ... she's stressed out.

'RHOC' Star Kelly Dodd How's This For 4th Fireworks I Fought a Guy!!!

7/5/2017 4:13 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kelly Dodd's 4th of July got real when she got into a fight with a guy who she says tried stealing from her.

The 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star tells TMZ she was partying with some girlfriends at Descanso Beach Club on Catalina Island, when a random guy tried stealing her drinks as well as her sunglasses and purse.

She says she confronted him, and that's when he got physical and punched her in the stomach. She countered with a kick. You see her yelling at him and that's when security stepped in.

The man was was kicked out of the party, but he wasn't deterred ... he tried coming back.

Lucky for him ... cops weren't called.

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' We Want 'ANTM' Winner Eva

7/3/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"The Real Housewives of Atlanta" wanna switch things up this season, and it's up to former "America's Next Top Model" winner Eva Marcille to pass the test.

Sources close to the production tell TMZ ... producers invited Eva for the upcoming season to see if she fits with the current cast. We're told she's already shot a few scenes with NeNe Leakes at her home.

Eva -- who won season 3 of 'Top Model' -- could possibly replace Cynthia Bailey or Porsha Williams because we're told one of them might be phased out next season on account of their story lines drying up.

Eva's age also makes her attractive -- at 32 she'd be younger than the other ladies. However, we're told the most important requirement is chemistry and drama. Eva's gotta bring it ... like she totes did on 'ANTM.'

Kenya Moore Ex-BF Ordered to Stay Away for 1 Yr

6/20/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kenya Moore's best wedding gift came from a judge, who gave her some long-term protection, a 1-year restraining order against her ex-bf Matt Jordan ... TMZ has learned.

The judge granted the protective order earlier this month. Her temporary restraining order against Jordan ended back in April when she no-showed for court. At the time, she told us she'd been unable to find Matt to serve him.  

Per the court's order, Matt has to stay at least 200 yards away from Kenya and her family ... which now includes her new husband.

Kenya posted pics from her surprise (to all of us) wedding in St. Lucia. As for the who the groom is? She ain't saying.

NeNe Leakes I'm Back for Season 10 of 'Housewives' With One Catch ...

6/14/2017 1:52 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

You didn't really think NeNe Leakes was going to let Kim Zolciak hog the spotlight -- she's finally signed on for Season 10 of 'RHOA.'

Sources connected to production tell us NeNe signed on the dotted line Wednesday, ending months of negotiations to bring her and Kim back for the show's 10th anniversary. Kim struck her deal back in April, but NeNe's been holding out.

There's a twist though ... NeNe will only be a part-time cast member. We're told she passed on a full-time gig because she has too many other balls in the air right now such as her clothing line.

Some of the other women on the show have already started shooting the next season, but NeNe's yet to appear.

As you'd expect, NeNe's being totally modest about her new deal, saying ... "All hail the queen for season 10."
