"Real Housewives of New York City" star Alex McCord and her family are dealing with a real tragedy -- their beloved cat Madge passed away this week after she was hit by a car. 

Neighbors discovered the cat lying in the street on Wednesday after she managed to get out of the house. McCord said Madge's body was still in perfect condition, so the family (including their other cat Erin) was able to say their goodbyes.

McCord says the death of Madge has been difficult to explain to her two boys, adding, "We talked about how … she was different because she wasn't alive anymore. They each wrote her a little note which we put in a box we buried her in and put a marker above her grave."

RIP ... cat.

The people behind the "Real Housewives" franchise are poking around in Calabasas, CA ... searching for Christian women to star in a new reality show inspired by "GCB" ... TMZ has learned.

We've confirmed ... producers have already reached out to several members of the Calabasas elite who live in the same extremely private gated community Justin Bieber will soon call home.

We're told producers are looking for "accomplished and upscale women in the Calabasas area who have fabulous lives, are very social, are involved in the community, but also have a very deep commitment to their faith."

The community is loaded with stars ... including Travis Barker, Shanna Moakler, Gary Sinise, D.L. Hughley, Kourtney Kardashian, Keyshawn Johnson and Nikki Sixx.

So far, it's unclear if producers have reached out to the stars ... but they probably should.

Slade Smiley from "Real Housewives of Orange County" is threatening legal action against his baby mama after he was verbally assaulted on a Hollywood red carpet and accused of being a deadbeat dad.

TMZ posted the video this morning of a man attacking Slade and Gretchen Rossi ... accusing Slade of being $160,000 in arrears on his child support to Michelle Arroyo

Slade's attorney tells TMZ, “Slade is not a deadbeat dad and is making timely payments. We will be looking into this further and if Miss Arroyo did hire these clowns to harass Slade we will exercise all our rights including a restraining order if necessary."

The attorney also says Arroyo is actually denying Slade time with his son, Grayson ... an 11-year-old diagnosed with cancer. Arroyo says Slade is now paying her $775/month, but claims he's still $95,000 behind.

As for last night's 3 ring circus ... Slade's lawyer says, "It appears this whole thing was staged and created by Miss Arroyo who is obviously looking for attention."

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley were caught in a CRAZY scene last night when a bill collector angrily hit 'em up for more than $100K in late child support Slade allegedly owes for his son ... an 11-year old who's fighting brain cancer.

The "Real Housewives of Orange County" couple had just stepped off a red carpet in Hollywood last night when the bill collector jumped out and shouted at Slade, "Pay your child support! Your son has cancer."

As TMZ reported, Slade owes a major chunk o' cash to his ex-gf Michelle Arroyo. Their son Grayson was diagnosed with brain cancer at age 6 and has had 11 surgeries.

In the video, the collector repeatedly says Slade owes $160,000 in back child support -- but Michelle tells TMZ the total was around $130,000 ... until she agreed to reduce it to $95,000 in a recent court hearing.  

She claims Slade is currently paying her $775 per month. We called Slade's rep for comment ... but haven't heard back yet.

Dating a younger guy has Camille Grammer acting like a kid again -- we spotted her making out in the middle of a packed Las Vegas nightclub!

Grammer -- along with fellow "RHOBH" stars Kyle Richards, Mauricio Umansky, Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif -- hit up MOON inside the Palms. The former Mrs. Kelsey Grammer spent most of her evening in close proximity of her boyfriend, Dimitri George Charalambopoulos.

The gang was in town for Paul Nassif's new Blizz Frozen Yogurt & Desserts store at the MGM Grand.

Interesting to see how Kelsey has already gotten married and is expecting twins ... and Camille is the one hanging out in the clubs.

Ain't nothing wrong with that.



'OC Housewife' Gretchen Rossi Tamra's Engagement Is a SHAM

"Real Housewives of Orange County" star Gretchen Rossi is telling friends ... Tamra Barney's new engagement is based on a money-grubbing lie -- manufactured by show producers desperate for a dramatic finale.

Sources close to Gretchen tell TMZ, producers originally approached Gretchen's BF Slade about proposing -- hoping he'd pop the question in time for the show's big finale this year. We're told producers even attempted to bribe Slade with an exotic proposal destination ... and a FREE RING.

We're told Slade turned the offer down -- convinced the public already hated him enough without a fake proposal -- so producers turned to Tamra and her BF Eddie Judge out of spite.

We're told Tamra and Eddie instantly snatched up the proposal package -- and her whole proposal was then conveniently filmed for the show ... at the same exotic location that was allegedly offered to Slade.

Bravo had no comment.

'Bev Hills Housewives' Doctor My Nose Job Patient is Threatening Me!

Snot your typical restraining order ... "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Dr. Paul Nassif claims a dissatisfied nose job patient has been harassing and threatening him to the point the cops are now involved and Nassif is asking for court protection.

Nassif -- a cosmetic surgeon who is married to "Housewives" star Adrienne Maloof -- performed all sorts of schnoz work on Roman Melikov. Mr. Melikov didn't like the results, to say the least.

According to the police report, Nassif claims Melikov incessantly called his office, demanding to speak with him and threatening, "If I don't get to f**king talk to Dr. Nassif, I will just show up and f**king wait for him to talk to me because he needs to f**king pay for this!"

And Melikov left voicemails for Nassif, referring to himself as a "psycho." Melikov also said he would come to Bev Hills to "have Nassif's wife help him out of pity."

Nassif's employees fear Melikov is mentally unstable and could come to the office "and do something crazy."

Nassif wants a restraining order, keeping Melikov away from him and his family. As for Melikov, he wants a $26,000 refund.

We spoke with Melikov, who told us Nassif screwed up his nose. The swelling didn't go down for 2 years. And the 25-year-old businessman tells us his nose is now bigger and ugly.

8:13 AM PST -- Melikov, a portfolio manager, tells TMZ Nassif has taken his "psycho" comment totally out of context ... explaining, "I told him I had to be a psycho to invest in this market, because it has been so volatile. "

'NY Housewives' Star I'm Making My Merkins Fur-Free!

Cindy Barshop
Former "Real Housewives of New York" star Cindy Barshop has heard the cries of the anti-fur community and had a change of heart -- she's going to make her new line of luxury merkins fur-free!

As TMZ first reported, the "RHONY" is selling the pubic wigs at her NYC waxing salon, Completely Bare. One of the merkins used real fox fur -- which, according to our sources, drew lots of hate mail and threats in Cindy's direction. 

So, we're told, plans to use the real fox fur have been scrapped and instead she'll go with faux fur.

Now you don't have to worry about PETA throwing paint on your nether regions.

Gerard Butler 'Who's Brandi Glanville?'

If Gerard Butler really did have mind-blowing sex with "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Brandi Glanville -- as she proudly claims -- he doesn't remember it ... asking TMZ, "Who's Brandi Glanville?"

In case you didn't know ... Brandi -- Eddie Cibrian's ex-wife -- recently appeared on a talk show, announcing she once bumped uglies with Gerard for an entire week ... and it was so good, she rated him an 11 out of 10.

But either Butler has so much good sex, he can't remember every bangmates's name -- or Brandi's lying. Both are equally plausible.

Judge to Danielle Staub: No One Can MAKE You Strip

Danielle Staub can keep her pants on ... for now ... 'cause the former "Real Housewives" villain just won a nasty legal fight with one of the biggest strip clubs in the country.

TMZ has learned ... a federal judge in NY just ruled that Scores New York failed to show why Staub had a legal obligation to continue working for the gentlemen's club after taking a $25k payment to perform in a stripper video in 2010.

As we previously reported, Scores sued Staub for $375k ... claiming she failed to make a series of appearances at the club and on the Scores website ... after accepting the initial payment.

But in the court ruling, obtained by TMZ, the judge claimed Scores drew up a "vague" contract ... and never clearly specified Staub's obligations to the club.

The judge officially dismissed the lawsuit Wednesday -- but the war may not be over ... 'cause Scores can bring the fight back to the court if new information comes to light.

In the meantime, if you REALLY wanna see Staub get naked ... there's always her sex tape -- if you're into bagels, broccoli and onions.
