Adrienne Maloof & Paul Nassif Money Truce in Divorce

11/9/2012 5:00 AM PST
1108_maloof_nassif_gettyAdrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif agreed ... they would not try to screw the other out of money in their divorce ... striking a deal that essentially leaves both parties with whatever they came into the marriage with ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... the 'Real Housewives' stars settled their divorce this morning after a breakup that got downright nasty.

Sources tell us the agreement was reached after both families stepped in to help mediate ... with Paul's brother, Chris Nassif, and Adrienne's brother, Joe Maloof leading the charge.

Of course, money COULD have been a major issue ... since they're both incredibly wealthy. But sources close to the former couple tell us the two hammered out a deal that will allow them to each keep the assets they brought into the union ... and split everything else they acquired during the marriage right down the middle.

As for custody of the couple's 3 sons ... we're told Adrienne and Paul agreed to a deal that is "very close to 50/50 custody."

One source close to the couple tells us, "They're both happy ... and they just want to move on with their lives."

They go on, "Our goal is for our children to have stable and nurturing relationships with both of us so we can all find as much happiness as possible."

'Real Housewives' Big Poppa ARRESTED

11/8/2012 7:40 AM PST
Breaking News
Lee Najjar -- who was known on "Real Housewives" as Kim Zolciak's mysterious ex-sugar daddy "Big Poppa" -- was arrested in Atlanta this week ... TMZ has learned.

Najjar was taken into custody by the Fulton County Sheriff's Dept. on November 6 ... though it's unclear why he was arrested.

According to law enforcement, Najjar has since been released from custody.

Najjar has developed a reputation as a fame whore ... especially when it came to flaunting his wealth. Back in 2009, he showed off his ATL mansion on an episode of MTV's "Teen Cribs" ... and then funded Kim Z's ridiculous spending sprees back when he was nailing her.

9:42 AM PT -- We've learned ... Najjar had a bench warrant out for his arrest for failing to appear in court to face allegations he failed to maintain a storm water system at one of his properties.

Najjar has already been hit with a $75,000 fine for violating the ordinance and was supposed to appear in court on July 5 ... but apparently, he blew off his court date.

'Real Housewives' Star $75k Win in Child Support War with Ex-NFL Star

10/22/2012 3:35 AM PDT
Former NFL star Bob Whitfield has 21 days to fork over $75,000 to his reality star ex-wife Sheree Whitfield for overdue child support ... or else. 

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... Bob admits he failed to make 38 monthly child support payments of $2,142 to the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star ... more than $81k.

Bob claimed he simply didn't have the money -- and had asked the court to lower his obligation ... but that was denied.

Now, the two sides have struck a deal in which Bob has agreed to hand over $75k before Nov. 11 ... or face the consequences in court.

In addition to the $75k, Bob has also agreed to pay $1,000 per month for the next 12 months -- before reverting back to the original $2,142.

Fun Fact -- Back in 2000, Whitfield signed a 6-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons in the neighborhood of $30 million.

Danielle Staub Bravo WILL NOT Bring Her Back to 'Housewives'

10/21/2012 6:00 AM PDT
There are absolutely ZERO PLANS to bring Danielle Staub back to "Real Housewives" ... despite her meeting with Andy Cohen ... this according to very well-placed sources.

TMZ posted footage of Staub exiting a meeting with the Bravo honcho earlier this week ... and she hinted that a possible return to the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" could be in the works.

But network sources tell TMZ ... Staub left such a bad taste in the mouths of producers when she was fired from the show back in 2010, that there's NO WAY they would even consider bringing her back.

However, we're told Andy and Danielle got along well during the meeting -- fact is, Andy's a good businessman so he's keeping the door open for other possible projects down the line.

Kim Zolciak to Judge My Mother is an Unfit Grandparent

10/19/2012 4:00 AM PDT
Kim Zolciak's two young daughters have sworn under oath ... they DO NOT want to be forced to spend time with their grandmother ... claiming she's nothing but a disrespectful old lady.

The kids are responding to a lawsuit filed by Kim's mom Karen Zolciak -- who wanted the court to FORCE Kim to let her spend time with her granddaughters.

In her docs, Karen had claimed Kim cut her off from the kids back in 2011 ... simply because she used an off-limits indoor bathroom instead of a porta-potty at Kim's televised wedding to NFL player Kroy Biermann.

Now, Kim's kids -- Ariana and Brielle Zolciak (ages 11 & 15) -- have submitted sworn affidavits to the court ... in which they beg the judge to shut Grandma down, explaining, "We both love our grandparents, but due to their actions at the wedding of [Kim and Kroy] ... we have grown apart."

The girls say they have no real desire to see their grandparents ... and insist they have too much going on in their lives to be forced to hang with Granny for overnight visitations.

In the docs, the girls also fire back at Grandma's claims that Kim pushes them into the spotlight -- saying, "We do not live a crazy or abnormal life. We are not forced to appear on television with our mother."

The girls -- and Kim -- are asking the judge to throw out Karen's case. Kim also wants her mom to pay for her legal costs.

Gonna be a fun Thanksgiving.


Danielle Staub Hints at 'Housewives' Return 'I Met With Andy Cohen'

10/18/2012 6:25 AM PDT

THE B*TCH IS BACK ... well, almost ... 'cause Danielle Staub says she had a meeting with Bravo honcho Andy Cohen yesterday and claims they totally talked "Housewives."

Staub -- who was booted from "Real Housewives of New Jersey" in 2010 -- was in NYC with her daughter yesterday when she told us about the sit-down with Cohen.

"It was a general meeting," Staub says ... adding, "There was a lot of talk about everything -- including Housewives."

As for rumors that Staub ALREADY has a deal in place to return to the show, Staub says it's bogus ... nothing is official ... yet. 
But if she does return, it's gonna be great -- 'cause it's clear she still HATES her former castmates. When we asked if she's spoken to any of the women, Staub shot back -- "No, I have absolutely no interest in speaking to any of them."


Dr. Paul Nassif Head Honcho of Domestic Violence Charity

10/17/2012 12:15 AM PDT
Dr. Paul Nassif
has been a prominent member of an anti-domestic violence charity for years, TMZ has learned -- and he's even been invited to a big event THIS WEEK ... despite allegations he beat his wife Adrienne Maloof.

Organizers of the Face to Face charity in NYC emailed Nassif this week to confirm his attendance at the event. The charity offers victims of domestic abuse free reconstructive surgery ... and Nassif, a well-known plastic surgeon, has been on the executive committee for years.

In fact, we've learned Nassif was honored with Adrienne just last year at the charity's 9th annual benefit for the couple's "ongoing commitment to improving the lives of victims of domestic violence."

It's pretty crazy ... considering Nassif's invitation to this week's event was confirmed AFTER Adrienne accused him of beating her and attacking their children.

We're told Nassif definitely plans to attend ... without Adrienne, of course.

Dr. Paul Nassif I Did NOT Do This to Adrienne

10/15/2012 3:44 PM PDT
Dr. Paul Nassif
's lawyer tells TMZ, his client absolutely, positively did NOT inflict the bruises and marks depicted in disturbing photos released by Adrienne Maloof's personal chef.

Adrienne's chef Bernie Guzman -- who has appeared on several episodes of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" -- just posted the eight photos on his Facebook page, strongly insinuating Paul is responsible for the injuries.

Bernie wrote several messages on his wall as he posted the photos, saying, "ADRIENNE MALOOF WAS PUSHED TO THE GROUND. PUNCHED & BEATEN ... HE IS A BEAST."


Dr. Nassif's lawyer, Marty Singer, tells TMZ, "Any suggestion that the photos show my client struck Adrienne Maloof is a complete fabrication."  Singer goes on, "No physical assault ever occurred."

As for how Adrienne suffered the injuries, Singer said, "I can't speculate how these marks occurred.  I know the woman does martial arts."

Lisa Vanderpump Targeted In Sexual Assault Suit

10/12/2012 5:08 PM PDT

An actress/restaurant server claims she was the victim of sexual assault and battery at Lisa Vanderpump's Beverly Hills Restaurant, Villa Blanca, and she's suing Lisa and the man she claims did the dirty deeds for more than $5 million.

Karina Bustillos -- who has appeared in "The Mexican Conspiracy" and "86'd" -- claims in April, a Villa Blanca manager, Michael Govia, told her to close her eyes. She says when she eventually opened them, Govia's mouth was open with his tongue sticking out, right by her mouth, in an attempt to kiss her.

Bustillos says she complained and then Govia began retaliating, calling her a "bitch" and a "c**t" and telling other servers he could "get her" -- implying he could sleep with her if he wanted.

Karina Bustillos
She says in August, Govia allegedly approached her and aggressively twisted her wrists. She says when she asked him to stop, he responded, "I will do whatever I want. I'm the manager."

Bustillos says she complained to others but no action was taken. Bustillos also says Lisa Vanderpump gave her the cold shoulder after she complained.

Bustillos, who claims she was forced to quit, is suing Lisa, her husband, Ken Todd, the restaurant and Govia for more than $5 mil.

Lisa Vanderpump tells TMZ, "The waitress had a falling out with a manager.  Of course I take that seriously.  We've looked at all the cameras and there's no sexual harassment." Lisa adds, "This is just a disgruntled employee."
