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.

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.

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.

We got Andy at LAX on his way to film the "Love Connection" reboot and asked him about the shade he threw Trump's way over Twitter. 

Apparently Trump's not the only one checking off the 'RHODC' requirements.

3/23/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars Peter Thomas and Matt Jordan threw everything that wasn't nailed down during a radio interview that looked more like UFC 210.

They dislike each other intensely, so it seems the interview was destined for disaster, and they did not disappoint. Matt threw a water bottle at Peter, then charged him. We're told they locked up, and Peter scored a takedown, because station staff broke it up.

It was so bad, cops were called and took an assault report from Peter against Matt.

Here's the bad news. The interview was not live and it looks like the station isn't going to air it.

Exclusive Details

Cops arrested 2 men for the murder involving Kim DePaola's car and 2 friends of her son ... and TMZ has learned family members believe it was all a setup revenge killing.

Paterson, NJ cops took two men -- Clarence Williams and Gerry Thomas -- into custody for the Friday killings. As we reported ... two friends of Kim's son, Chris, were driving his car when they were shot execution style and burned.

The victims have now been ID'd as 27-year-old Aaron Anderson and 25-year-old Antonio Vega.

Sources connected to their families tell us Aaron and Antonio were driving around with a third person in the backseat when they stopped at a gas station to smoke. We're told the families believe that third person set up Aaron and Antonio, directing them to that lot where the shootings went down.

Family sources tell us the suspects shot them first and came back later to ignite the car. They believe this was revenge against Aaron, and Antonio was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

We're told both Aaron and Antonio have young children -- in fact, Antonio has another on the way.

Williams and Thomas have been charged with murder and arson.

'RHONJ' Star Kim DePaola Murderers Should 'Rot in Hell' Over Double Execution

3/20/2017 2:08 PM PDT

'RHONJ' star Kim DePaola is almost at a loss for words over the murders of her son's 2 friends.

As we reported, Kim owned a car she allowed her son to drive. Her son had a friend take him to the airport last Wednesday in the car and the friend then drove it around New Jersey. On Friday, the friend and another male passenger were shot in the head execution style and the car was set on fire.

Kim says the killers are savages, and it's so horrific the victims can't be buried because authorities can't positively identify them.

Kim says she and her son are devastated.

Exclusive Details

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Kim DePaola's car is at the center of a double murder in New Jersey -- and her son's friend could be one of the victims ... TMZ has learned.

Two badly burned bodies were found in the 'RHONJ' star's torched car Friday -- both had reportedly been shot in the head ... execution style.

We've learned Kim's son, Chris, was the one who regularly drove the car. We're told a friend drove Chris to the airport  last Wednesday, and was in possession of the car while Chris was out of town.

Our sources say the friend was not supposed to drive the car around town ... rather, Chris told him to take it back to his house and leave it.  Apparently that didn't happen.

Family sources say Chris has not been able to reach the friend and is extremely worried.

Later Friday, police in Paterson responded to a call that shots had been fired on East 28th street ... when cops arrived, the car was fully engulfed in flames and the bodies burned beyond recognition.

Caitlyn Jenner No-Go for 'Real Housewives' Cast

3/17/2017 11:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Caitlyn Jenner won't be giving reality TV another go as a housewife of Beverly Hills ... TMZ has learned.

The rumors Cait is joining 'RHOBH' just ain't true. Sources close to production tell us she was neither asked, nor considered as a possible addition in the first place.

Cait's now canceled show, "I Am Cait," aired on E!, which is owned by NBCUniversal, like Bravo. We're guessing people thought that would make it easier for Caitlyn to jump to 'Housewives' ... but it's a moot point. It's not happening.

'RHOBH' is currently airing season 7, and we're told no decisions have been about the 8th.

Real Housewives of Atlanta Negotiating with Bravo For Triumphant Return

3/16/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are deep in negotiations to return to "The Real Housewives of Atlanta."

Sources close to production tell us Kim and NeNe both have offers on the table from Bravo for Season 10 this Fall, and we're told the network wants them as full-fledged cast members.

We're told both women are receptive, but there's a problem. Kim's got her own show on Bravo that just started filming ... and NeNe's shooting her own stuff.

We're told Bravo's willing to bend if necessary and hire them as part-time cast members, although that's not ideal. 

We know both want a lot of money, and we don't know if the 2 sides are far apart.

Kim hasn't been a regular on 'Housewives' since season 5, and NeNe bailed after season 8. Members of the existing cast are not all down with the move, but they have no choice.

Welcome back, girls ... maybe.

Kim Richards Gets Softer, But Longer Sentence

3/10/2017 3:32 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards just got her sentence nearly doubled in her drunken Bev Hills rampage case, and she's actually happy about it.

Kim was ordered on Friday to do 450 hours of community service for her 2015 arrest at the Beverly Hills Hotel. You'll recall she allegedly kicked an officer who responded when she got hammered and unruly in the famed Polo Lounge.

Kim was originally sentenced to 30 days hard labor but as we reported, she begged for a softer sentence due to a foot injury. The D.A.'s Office originally wasn't down to let her off the hook, but is now showing her some mercy.

We're told she must complete the majority of her 450 hours by September, or risk pissing off the judge ... which could open the door to jail time.
