Lisa Vanderpump Sues Ex-Attorney ... Your Crappy Work Lost Me A Ton of Money

11/7/2015 7:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1106_lisa_vanderpump_ken_todd_tmzLisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd are going after an attorney they say did a really crappy job defending them against a former employee. 

The "RHOBH" stars say Marieanne Zakarian cut a lot of corners when she repped them. You'll recall, one of their Villa Blanca employees, Karina Bustillos, claimed she was assaulted and sexually harassed at work. She eventually won a $1.6 million judgement against Lisa and Ken.

Now they're looking to get some of that money back from Zakarian with a lawsuit claiming she committed malpractice. 

The couple's demanding more than $1 mil in damages. 

Brandi Glanville Pasties Hide Nipples ... But Not Thirst

11/4/2015 9:08 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1104-brandi-glanville-gettyHere's Brandi Glanville's idea of charity -- proudly exposing her nipples at a fundraiser. She's a giver!

Brandi and Susan McKagan, Duff's wife, attended Rhonda's Kiss charity concert for cancer patients Tuesday night at the El Rey Theater -- where, apparently, the dress code was top optional.

Outside, an absolutely parched Brandi tried to apply logic to her decision to openly sport heart-shaped pasties. Fashion is a very subjective thing. Obviously.


'Real Housewives of ATL' Ex-NBA Player In Physical Altercation ... Cops Called

11/4/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1103-glen-rice-jr-getty-01There was real life drama during a recent 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' shoot -- with a troubled ex-NBA player allegedly knocking one of the women to the ground ... multiple sources tell TMZ Sports

It all went down at a home in Miami back in September, where ex-Washington Wizards player Glen Rice Jr. was involved in a scene with Tammy McCall Browning

FYI -- Glen is the same guy who was recently arrested in ATL after being shot in a dispute at a restaurant owned by T.I.

Our sources tell us ... producers brought Browning in to test her for a full-time gig on the show ... and she brought Rice Jr. because she thought it would help her chances. But things took a turn for the worse when they began drinking -- with the ladies complaining to producers that Glen was getting aggressive and making the women uncomfortable. 

We're told Tammy went to ask Glen to leave -- and as one source says, "He lost it." Our sources say Glen went to confront one of the housewives -- and Tammy tried to get in the way to stop him -- but he wouldn't stop and knocked her to the ground. Tammy smacked her head pretty hard and began to cry. 

We're told the whole thing was captured on video ... in fact, footage of Tammy reeling in pain was used in the promo for the new season. 

Tammy was eventually taken to the hospital for evaluation -- where doctors determined she was fine, no concussion. But later, Tammy and Glen returned to the home -- where the housewives made it clear Glen wasn't welcome. An argument ensued and cops were called to the scene. 

Things eventually calmed down -- no one was arrested -- and Glen left without further incident. But our sources say Glen was told he was NOT welcome back and Tammy did not get a featured role on the show. 

We reached out to Rice for comment -- so far, no word back. 

'RHOA' Star Kenya Moore I Bought a House Without Doors!

11/3/2015 12:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1102_kenya_moore_houseKenya Moore just dropped $515k on a fixer upper that may be the most insecure place in the ATL ...  because it didn't even have doors.

We're told Kenya paid cash and almost instantly began extensive remodeling. The house was actually under construction but was never completed because the owner ran out of money, so Kenya had her work cut out for her.

Kenya's realtor, Jeremy Smith, tells us she wanted a contemporary and there aren't a lot in the area so she settled on the partially built pad. He says the house when finished would easily go for $1.5 mil. She's spending around $400k on the remodel, so on paper it's a great investment.

The house is 15 minutes outside of Buckhead, which is where she wanted to be, but that's why God invented cars.

Kenya will do a big remodel reveal on her show.


Lisa Rinna & Harry Hamlin Sorry About the Swastika ... Just Keeping it Real

Breaking News

Lisa Rinna, Harry Hamlin Halloween CostumeLisa Rinna is apologizing for her husband Harry Hamlin, stepping out with a giant Swastika across his chest ... but her excuse probably won't sit well with anyone who was offended.  

Lisa and Harry dressed up as the Sex Pistols' Sid Vicious and his gf Nancy Spungen for the Casamigos Halloween bash, and as you can imagine ... Harry's getup pissed off a lot of people.

Lisa says they were just trying to be authentic ... recreating a classic 1978 pic of Sid and Nancy. She says they didn't mean to offend anybody. However, when we got them out Saturday night, Harry changed his shirt, but was hardly apologetic for the Swastika.

Interestingly, even the 1986 biopic "Sid and Nancy" avoided this kind of PR nightmare -- replacing the Nazi symbol with the Soviet hammer and sickle.


Kim Richards 2 For 1 Sentence In Target Shoplifting Case

10/28/2015 11:36 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Kim Richards copped a plea deal in her Target store shoplifting case, and the sentence is going to feel very familiar to her. 

Kim appeared in front of an L.A. judge who sentenced her to 300 hours of community service, 3 years probation, and 52 AA meetings.

Kim got precisely the same sentence for a drunken rampage at the Beverly Hills Hotel back in April. The judge decided she won't have to repeat the community service and AA meetings twice ... once will be sufficient. 

As TMZ reported, Richards was busted back in August for stealing more than $600 worth of Target merch at a Van Nuys store.  

She's been ordered to stay clear of the store.   

NeNe Leakes I'M BACK!!! 'RHOA' Is Soo Boring Without Me

Exclusive Details


NeNe Leakes is eating her words ... returning to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' this season, even though she declared there was no chance she'd go back. 

Leakes surprised the cast when she showed up to their retreat in Jamaica. We're told none of the ladies knew NeNe was coming back and her surprising entry even left some of the ladies speechless. No small feat.

1028_nene_leaks_in_jamaica_facebookOur sources say producers phoned NeNe earlier this month, pleading with her to come back because the storylines were lacking excitement so far this season. In a nutshell: We suck, please help.

NeNe agreed to do it because the price was right this time, and it didn't affect the shooting schedule on her new game show.

We're told NeNe's episodes will air toward the end of the season.

Kim Richards I'm Not Homeless Anymore

10/25/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1023-kim-richards-sobriety-home-TMZ-888hilgard-01Kim Richards has taken at least one step in her 12 step recovery ... she found a place to live. 

Kim was practically homeless -- living in her car -- when her family refused to take her in after she bailed on rehab. But now we're told she's living in a somewhat swanky Westwood condo.  

Kim's new place is small -- 1 bedroom and 1 bath  -- but the building has all sorts of amenities, including a gym. Rent in the building ranges from $3k-$5k a month. 

No word on who's footing the bill, since Kim's out of work after getting the ax on "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." 

We're guessing it may be a really wealthy family.


'RHOBH' Mauricio Umansky Calls BS Brandi Glanville's NOT Coming Back

10/22/2015 1:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mauricio Umansky was first shocked and then scoffed at a new report claiming Brandi Glanville is making her triumphant return to "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills."

Mauricio was leaving Craig's in WeHo Wednesday night when our photog clearly surprised Kyle Richards' hubby, and he used all the vocal force he could muster to shoot it down. 

Kyle and Brandi hate each other ... at least that's the way it played on the show.


Kris Jenner I DO Weddings ... For My Famous Friends

10/12/2015 8:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

1012-kris-jenner-officiates-wedding-INSTAGRAM-01Kris Jenner threw a wedding for her longtime pal and 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Faye Resnick, and even officiated the ceremony.

It went down Sunday at Jenner's Calabasas pad. 'RHOBH' star Kyle Richards was one of the bridesmaids and her daughter Portia was flower girl. Khloe Kardashian even taught her some dance moves.

Kris has married off people before, including her own pastor Brad Johnson. 

Faye married lawyer Everett Jack in a small ceremony, and it's hardly her first rodeo. This is marriage #4 for Faye.

BTW ... there's a whole O.J. twist to this wedding. Faye and Kris go way back -- they were both besties with Nicole Brown Simpson, and of course ... Robert Kardashian was O.J.'s pal and attorney.

We doubt any of that came up on Sunday. 



Lisa Vanderpump Chinese Need to End Barbaric Torture, Killing of Dogs

10/5/2015 6:16 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Vanderpump rallied hundreds of people Sunday to protest a barbaric Chinese festival that involves the torture and brutal killing of dogs.

Lisa, Kyle Richards, Lisa Rinna, Gretchen Rossi and other celebs were there on Sunday in L.A.'s MacArtuhur Park, protesting the Yulin Festival.

The festival is unbelievably cruel, where dogs are sometimes burned alive and then eaten.  

Lisa and crew are trying to put pressure on the Chinese to end it.


Brandi Glanville Smelly Vagina Suit is Bogus It's in Krupa's Contract!

10/1/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0930_brandi-glanville_joanna_krupa_tmzBrandi Glanville has another trick up her sleeve to get the smelly vagina lawsuit thrown out ... she claims Joanna Krupa signed away her right to go after Brandi in court. 

In documents obtained by TMZ ... Brandi says Joanna's defamation suit  should be tossed, because Joanna's 'Real Housewives' contract forbids her from suing her fellow 'Housewives' cast members.

It would make sense since the heat on those shows comes from the women sniping at each other. 

Joanna was on "The Real Housewives of Miami" back in 2013 -- and, in fact, Brandi's vagina comment came on the heels of the 'Miami' reunion show. 

Brandi admits she doesn't have a copy of Joanna's contract ... but considering Brandi was on the Bev Hills edition, it's a good bet she knows what's in the fine print.

Krupa's lawyer thinks Brandi's reaching -- trying everything she can and "hope something sticks."

Porsha Williams' Boyfriend I'm Returning My Porsha

9/27/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0925-porsha-instagram-01The 'Real Housewives' shows have a big problem ... they build their seasons around romances that blow up before the shows air.

Porsha Williams is the latest R.H. star who happily filmed burgeoning love that flamed out. She hooked up with Buffalo Bills star Duke Williams and they cavorted for season 6 shows, but when the cameras stopped rolling they stopped too, only after a few months of dating.

The problem ... viewers know the relationship is history, so the storyline doesn't ring true.

Porsha doesn't have a problem scoring a touchdown on the playing field ... she just can't hold out for the win.

It also happened on "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," when Brandi Glanville dated a real estate agent but they were dunzo before the shows aired.

Maybe it's better this way ... most of them get divorced anyway.
