Kandi Burruss I'm All For a NeNe Leakes Comeback

2/17/2017 6:49 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss insists she's down for the return of NeNe Leakes on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' ... even if NeNe's already cranking up the drama.

We got Kandi Thursday at LAX where she refused to clap back at NeNe. Remember, she talked some serious trash on anyone who doesn't want her back on the show.

Word is several cast members aren't thrilled about NeNe's season 10 comeback after a nearly 2-year hiatus. Kandi's clearly taking the high road -- for now -- even when it comes to choosing between NeNe and Kim Zolciak.

Bethenny had to jump 2 fences to reach her $5 million Soho apartment Tuesday night. It was blocked by barricades which corralled a crowd trying to reach Kylie Jenner's pop-up store.

Bethenny was spotted earlier out with a mystery man, but doesn't look like he made it back to the apartment. Too bad ... she's very limber.

NeNe was at Catch Monday night in WeHo and we asked her about some cast members holding a meeting to protest her possible return. Check it out ... pretty clear NeNe's confident she'll outlive anyone else talking smack.

EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak won't get a warm welcome from their fellow 'RHOA' cast members, who think the former dynamic duo is too messy and too expensive.

Sources close to 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' tell us the women are saying there's no need to bring back NeNe and Kim because all they bring is over-the-top drama just to get camera time. As one source put it, there's "no substance."

We're told there's also a financial concern -- that Kim and NeNe's bloated salaries might chew up the budget, resulting in lower raises for the current cast.

Our sources say certain housewives called production Thursday to complain about the infamous frenemies returning. We're told some of the current housewives feel dissed after working hard to keep ratings up -- which they have, and now producers want to "add bulls***."

Ironically, it sounds like all this dissent would create real drama ... with substance.

However, Sheree Whitfield told us Thursday ... she'd welcome them with open arms. You buyin' it?

Teresa Giudice's paychecks are going to be a little fatter now, because she's completely paid up the six-figure tab that was part of her sentence for fraud charges.

As for Teresa's husband, Joe ... he's in the middle of a 41 month stint in the slammer.

EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives' producers are ready to Make Atlanta Great Again, which means bringing back NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak ... and the infamous frenemies just might be up for it.

Sources close to the show tell us execs want the milestone 10th season to be HUGE, and since fans have been clamoring to see NeNe and Kim reunited ... they're trying to make it happen. Previous attempts to get them for a spin-off failed ... due to scheduling conflicts, but we're told that won't be an issue this time around.

We're told producers put out feelers already and there's definite interest on the part of both women. No formal offer's been made yet, but the fact Kim is doing a cameo at the end of season 9 is a good sign a deal is close.

We can see it already ... "Welcome back, Wig!"

According to the docs ... James then pushed Amber's face away and released his grip around her neck. A passenger also complained James appeared drunk.

TMZ broke the story ... James was yanked off the flight and arrested for domestic violence. The charges were later dropped, and James claimed in his lawsuit  he and Amber did nothing to warrant getting booted from the plane.

Bethenny Frankel vs. Lawyers You Screwed Me in My Divorce

1/4/2017 1:42 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Bethenny Frankel got screwed in her divorce -- once by her ex-husband and once by her own lawyers -- so she claims in a new lawsuit.

According to the lawsuit, back in 2011, Bethenny bought a Manhattan condo for $5 million. Jason Hoppy, her hubby at the time, suggested she put the property in a trust. She claims she wanted it held in her name alone, but went along with the trust idea and they had their lawyers draft the document.

Bethenny claims, after divorce papers were filed -- to her horror -- she discovered the trust gave Jason a 50% interest in the condo. What's more, he had the right to live there and not pay a penny in rent.

Bethenny claims the snafu made the divorce super messy and it took 3 years to resolve. 

She's suing her lawyers for $2 mil minimum.
