Danielle Staub 'Racist' Rant Pisses Off 'RHONJ' Cast ... They Want Her Gone!!!

9/10/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Some of the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' want Danielle Staub edited out of the new season because they just found out about a racist rant she went on years ago ... TMZ has learned.

Cast members are demanding a meeting with producers after someone on the crew pointed out the audio footage existed. The audio recording is reportedly from a fight Danielle had with an ex-bf in 2015. She can be heard calling him a "stupid f***ing Mexican." She also dropped the n-word several times. 

Danielle was not on 'RHONJ' at the time of that recording ... she left after season 2. But here's the dilemma -- she's back now for season 8, which has already wrapped, and we're told she has an enormous amount of airtime. Cutting around her would be no simple task for producers. 

Still, now that they know about Danielle's rant ... we're told several cast members are disgusted they shot scenes with her. They're worried it will hurt their reputations and the show's ratings.

EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks channeled her inner Whoopi Goldberg and rocked her little heart out in the house of worship.

The 'RHOA' star hit up the Atlanta Dream Center for a Friday night service that also doubled as the album release party for her friend and gospel singer, Tasha Cobbs Leonard ... who, btw, is taking heat from the gospel community for featuring Nicki Minaj in one of her tracks.

More than 500 people packed the center, many of whom got down to the holy rhythm. Phaedra was there with friends and is clearly washed over by the Holy Spirit.

Don't fight the feeling ...

Lisa Vanderpump is expanding her empire, and she's counting on a couple of Toms to make it happen.

Our "Vanderpump Rules" production sources tell us ... the groundwork's been laid for Lisa to open up a new dining spot in West Hollywood, the same block on which SUR and PUMP sit. We're told she's enlisted fellow show stars Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz to help out.

It's interesting -- the Toms are best buds and tossed out the idea of opening a joint with Lisa last season called Tom & Tom ... and it looks like she's making their dream come true.

Our sources say the plan is to open the new restaurant in November ... right around the same time the new season of 'VR' debuts.

We're told Lisa's still working on a possible deal with Sandoval and Schwartz regarding ownership and management.

Kim Zolciak's adamant her son's not terrified of dogs 3 months after he was attacked by one ... and that's why she got him one for his birthday.

Sources close to the 'RHOA' star tell TMZ ... Kim and the family recently fostered 3 puppies from a pitt lab mix litter of 9 while they searched for their forever homes. The fam kept one puppy, Sage, but as Kash's 5th birthday approached, Kim surprised him with Sage's puppy bro, Sailor.

Kim insists Kash is not scared of dogs and he has no recurring issues following May's attack. As we reported ... a dog bit Kash in the face which required surgery. Kim said Kash healed up fine and has perfect vision in his left eye ... even after getting stitches on his water line.

'RHOA' Star Peter Thomas Spin-Off Show in the Works with Bravo

EXCLUSIVE

Peter Thomas -- the guy who brought a knife to a ... well ... fight -- could be getting his own spin-off show after splitting from Cynthia Bailey on 'RHOA.'

Production sources tell us Peter and Bravo started filming a pilot focusing on his club in Charlotte, NC, Club One -- think "Vanderpump Rules."

We're told the show will cover Peter's life owning and managing the club in the aftermath of his breakup with Cynthia last year on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta.' We're told it's highly unlikely Cynthia will come on as a guest.

You'll recall ... Peter pulled a box cutter on Kenya Moore's ex, Matt Jordan, in March during a brawl the 2 had in the middle of a radio interview. At the time, he claimed self-defense.

We're told the network is happy with what it's seeing and it's looking like the show will make air.

Hey ... why wouldn't it? The drama's so thick, you could cut it with a ... forget it.

8/4/2017 6:49 AM PDT

Joanna Krupa says her defamation lawsuit against Brandi Glanville was way more than hygienic vindication ... she hopes it will inspire others to stand up for themselves in the name of truth.

Joanna arrived at LAX Thursday and was at first slow to talk about her confidential settlement, but then opened up about the meaning behind her legal attack.

As for the saying, "Let bygones be bygones" ... well, it's not hard to read between the lines when it comes to a future friendship with Brandi.

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Divorce Drama Was Not On Camera

8/3/2017 4:03 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino timed her divorce just right to avoid it playing out on the show.

Our 'RHONY' sources say production for this season wrapped a couple months ago ... so if there were any juicy spats in the days before Luann and Tom D'Agostino's divorce announcement, cameras missed the action.

D'Agostino also dodged any mention of the big D during the reunion, which was taped a few weeks ago. Our sources say the couple's sometimes rocky relationship was discussed, but there wasn't a peep about a split.

As we reported, Luann announced Thursday she and hubby Tom were calling it quits ... just 8 months after they tied the knot.

We're told producers are scrambling to figure out a way to weave the divorce into the reunion episode. Take 2?

'RHONY' Star Luann D'Agostino Splitsville

Exclusive Details

'Real Housewives of New York' star Luann D'Agostino and her husband are calling it quits.

Sources close to Luann tell TMZ ... Tom D’Agostino didn't get along with Luann's family and it seemed his inappropriate behavior in the past was too much for the family to get over once married.

She made the shocking announcement Thursday on Twitter, saying, "It's with great sadness that Tom & I agreed to divorce. We care for each other very much, hope you respect our privacy during this sad time!"

Luann -- who got married just 8 months ago -- had a tumultuous relationship with 2 of her 'Housewives' co-stars, Ramona Singer and Sonja Morgan. Luann constantly bickered with them because Ramona and Sonja would bring up the fact they used to date Tom. Awkward.

Luann and Tom started dating in late 2015 and have no children.

2:45 PM PT -- It appears part of the settlement includes Brandi making a public mea culpa. She just released this statement to TMZ ... "I want to apologize to Joanna Krupa for the statements I have made about her. I regret ever making such statements about Joanna Krupa; I also certainly never intended my statements to be taken so seriously and out of proportion."

She added, "I apologize as I never wanted my statements to affect Joanna Krupa's reputation and I wish her nothing but continued success in life."

The big stink is over -- Joanna Krupa and Brandi Glanville struck a settlement in the infamous smelly vagina lawsuit ... TMZ has learned.

We just got a hold of new docs filed Tuesday confirming both sides have reached a "full and final settlement." Joanna's now officially withdrawing her defamation suit against Brandi.

Sounds like there was a financial settlement, but the terms are confidential.

As we reported ... the beef started in 2013 when Brandi -- while appearing on "Watch What Happens Live" -- claimed she'd heard from a friend that Joanna's lady parts smelled.

Brandi said it a second time ... prompting the defamation suit. Joanna's estranged husband even testified recently ... her vajayjay's "better than any other woman in the world."

Case closed.

EXCLUSIVE

Cynthia Bailey and NeNe Leakes are not down with fake news, and they think that's what Kim Zolciak's pushing when it comes to her beef with Kenya Moore.

We got the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' duo at LAX ... and our photog peppered them about what really happened to make Kim charge at Kenya while shooting last week. 

You'll recall Kim went nuclear ... thinking Kenya brought up Kim's "injured son" during some intense trash talking. So, was Kim justified? Well, there's Cynthia and NeNe's version of events. And then there's Kim's.

Anyone smell another Kim rant coming?

Joanna Krupa's Ex I Swear, Under Oath ... 'Her Vagina Smells Amazing'

7/30/2017 2:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Joanna Krupa's vagina is in a league of its own when it comes to scent ... according to her estranged husband, who's defending her against Brandi Glanville.

Romain Zago dropped the sweet, sweet compliment earlier this month during a deposition in the now-infamous smelly vagina legal battle between Joanna and Brandi.

According to docs, obtained by TMZ, Romain told Brandi's attorney -- "If you want to know the answer to this stupid comments from your client, (Joanna's) vagina smells amazing. And I swear on God, Jesus, my father, my brothers."

Brandi's lawyer asked Romain if Joanna smells better or the same as the other women -- and he said, "Better than any other woman in the world." Ringing endorsement, for sure.

Romain also accused Brandi of being a horrendous bully who damaged his marriage.

Joanna filed to divorce him just 4 days before the deposition, and he STILL testified pro vajayjay!

Who-ha, indeed!

Ex-'RHONJ' Star Lauren Manzo's Salon Avoids Full Blown Fire By A Hair

7/28/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The hair salon co-owned by Caroline Manzo's daughter narrowly escaped going up in flames when an electrical fire broke out in the basement ... TMZ has learned.

Lauren Manzo's Westchester, NY branch of Full Blown -- co-owned with her pal, Lia Cagliostro -- filled with heavy black smoke last weekend while customers were mid-styling. Lia tells us the only warning they had was flickering lights. She thought it was just a blown fuse, but then everything went dark in the smoke cloud.

Firefighters battled for hours, and everyone got out safely. The salon itself wasn't as lucky -- even though firefighters beat back flames, there was severe water damage from fire hoses. Lia says they had to trash all their hairdryers, brushes and clips ... which reeked of smoke. 

The building still doesn't have power, and will need rewiring, but they're planning to reopen next week.

In the meantime, their NJ branch, formerly seen on 'RHONJ,' is still fully blowing ... hair.
