EXCLUSIVE

Apollo Nida will appear on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' from prison and he's bringing his new mystery fiancée along for the ride too ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the woman lives in NJ, not far from the the federal prison where he's serving his sentence ... and she visits twice a week.

She and Apollo have both shot scenes for the upcoming 'RHOA' season -- he's on by phone -- and we're told producers want to keep her identity under wraps until the episode airs.

EXCLUSIVE

This topless pic of 'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Vicki Gunvalson has triggered an FBI complaint, and the agency is now looking into it ... TMZ has learned.

The pic was taken in Dublin, Ireland where cast members were on a retreat. Production sources say Tamra Judge took the pic and sent it to other cast members and producers with some snarky comments.

Somehow, the photo ended up on the social media account of a 15-year-old girl, who tweeted it out.

A woman named Rosalie saw the photo and filed a complaint with the FBI, saying "Tamara Judge ... sent a nude photograph of an acquaintance of hers (taken at a small gathering) to a FIFTEEN YEAR OLD girl & asked her to distribute it online in an effort to humiliate & harass one Vicki Gunvalson."

We reached out to Tamra ... sources close to her tell us she didn't leak the photo or in any way facilitate it getting into the hands of a minor.

The FBI is evaluating it but has not yet opened a formal investigation ... law enforcement sources tell us.

As for why Vicki posed topless ... fellow castmate Heather Dubrow was FaceTiming her hubby, "Botched" plastic surgeon Terry Dubrow, and Vicki wanted him to examine her nipples, which she felt were uneven.

Exclusive Details

Jules Wainstein's ex tried to pull a fast one by renting out an NYC apartment he had no business hawking because SHE owns it ... according to a new lawsuit, but he denies any wrongdoing.

Michael Wainstein is being sued by Jonathan Sheffer -- a famous conductor -- who says he needed to lease a place for his nanny, and Michael offered the pad ... at a premium. In the suit, Sheffer says Michael demanded more than $20k for rent, security deposit and broker fees.

A Virgin America flight attendant is a bald-faced liar who had 'Real Housewives' star James Marchese arrested for a fight with his wife that never went down ... so says James in new lawsuit. 

James and Amber Marchese just filed suit against Virgin America and flight attendant Moriah Rosser, who the Marcheses claim lied to cops when she said she saw James choking Amber on the plane.

James and Amber claim in the docs Moriah straight-up told them she didn't like James after recognizing him from their show. After James fell asleep in his seat, the couple claims cops stormed the plane and cuffed James ... based on what they say Moriah falsely reported. 

We broke the story ... James was arrested for domestic violence in April, but had the charges against him dropped. He told us he'd be suing Virgin America ... and it looks like he made good on his promise -- now they're suing for major damages. 

Virgin America tells TMZ the lawsuit has no merit and it'll defend itself and Moriah in court.

One of those bullets reportedly struck the 35-year-old man in the lower torso. Waring was arrested for the shooting hours later after a police chase and is still behind bars ... facing attempted murder charges.

'RHONY' Star Jules Wainstein Ex Misses Payments ... May Cost Him Even More

10/14/2016 1:36 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jules Wainstein has a problem with her ex -- she claims he's not bucking up the support the court ordered him to pay her.

A source close to the situation tells TMZ, the 'Real Housewives of NY' star has filed docs calling out her estranged husband, Michael, for not ponying up the $10,000 per month he was ordered to start paying last month. We're also told he hasn't paid their children's tuition or sent a dime for utilities.

Now, Jules doesn't just want the money ... she's asking the judge to find Michael in contempt, which could lead to additional fines.

Jules and Michael have had a rocky few months, starting with an argument that led to a 911 call. Michael's lawyer has claimed he doesn't have the income to make the payments, so looks like this won't be settled easily. 

We've reached out to reps for Jules and Michael, but no reply yet.

Kandi Burruss Booted Off Flight Airline Admits Screwup

9/30/2016 4:27 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss is getting a half-hearted apology from Hawaiian Airlines for a computer glitch that led to her whole crew getting temporarily grounded.

Kandi blasted the airline on social media, saying she, hubby Todd Tucker and 2 friends had been booted off their Honolulu to Maui flight for no good reason. But Hawaiian Airlines spokeswoman Alison Croyle tells TMZ ... Kandi and co. were not kicked off, and the unfortunate episode was partially their fault.

Croyle says shortly after Kandi and Todd boarded flight 526, the computer revealed an issue with their boarding passes ... so, an employee asked to check their boarding passes. Everything was fine, but the employee forgot to return their passes and baggage claim tickets.

As the plane was taxiing, flight attendants reassured the couple they wouldn't have a problem claiming their luggage -- but the airline says they got "irate."

Kandi says they were told to deplane because of the commotion -- while the airline says someone in Kandi's crew demanded they be let off. Either way, they all got off and boarded another flight 45 mins later.

Aloha!
