4/4/2016 6:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0404-vicki-tamra-crash-photos-GALLERY_LAUNCH-TMZ-01'O.C. Housewives' Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Barney were way worse off than we initially thought after they rolled an ATV while taping on Saturday. 

TMZ obtained these photos and video from the crash scene in Glamis, CA ... where Vicki had to be airlifted to a hospital for treatment. Witnesses on scene tell us she was puking after the accident, and couldn't feel her fingers. Both women complained of neck and back pain, and you can tell from these images ... everyone on scene was concerned about the severity of the injuries. 

We're also told Tamra, who was driving the Polaris RZR, had been warned several times by the people training her to slow down. 

TMZ broke the story ... both women had to be hospitalized after the accident, which happened while they were shooting for the show.

Both have been released, and we're told they're recovering well.

0403-tamra-barney-nicki-gunvalson-GETTY_TMZ-01Tamra Barney and Vicki Gunvalson were hospitalized -- one of them was even airlifted -- after a joyride in the California desert nearly turned tragic.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the accident happened in Glamis, CA around 12:50 PM Saturday ... when the Polaris RZR the women were riding in rolled over multiple times. A camera crew for "Real Housewives of the O.C." was taping at the time, and according to sources connected with production ... Tamra was behind the wheel.

We're told Vicki was airlifted to a nearby hospital for treatment. She was released early this morning with no major injuries. Tamra was also hospitalized, but released on Saturday. 

Both women were transported mostly out of an abundance of caution. We're told neither was in grave danger. 


Alexa Curtin from 'RHOC' I Was Raped By an O.C. Cop

4/1/2016 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

040116-alexa-cutin-twitterupdate_graphic_red_bar6:25 PM PT -- The O.C. Sheriff's Department tells us the officer Alexa names in her lawsuit, Deputy Epson ... is not one of their employees. Nor has he ever been. However, a Sheriff rep tells us they take the allegations seriously and they are investigating.update_grey_gray_barThe daughter of 'Real Housewives' star Lynne Curtin says an O.C. Sheriff's deputy raped her after a bizarre traffic stop and search of her vehicle ... and now she wants the county to pay. 

Alexa Curtin says she was leaving her boyfriend's Dana Point home in April 2014 when she got pulled over by a man she believes to be an O.C. deputy. In a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Curtin says the deputy searched her car and found underwear. She says he grilled her, saying things like ... how many pairs of underwear she had and why she needed them. 

Alexa, who used to make frequent appearances on 'Real Housewives of Orange County,' never says why he pulled her over in the first place.

After the search, she says the deputy abruptly announced he had to tend to another call, but told her to stay put on the side of the road -- only to return 20 minutes later in his personal vehicle, and in plain clothes. 

Curtin says he jumped in the passenger seat of her car and said, "Since you are still here, I am going to f**k the s**t out of you." She says he groped her, digitally penetrated her and then told her to straddle him. She describes the encounter as "nonconsensual sexual intercourse." 

She says he ejaculated inside her and on her seat.

In the suit, Curtin says she was afraid to report the alleged rape to authorities out of fear the deputy would harm her again. She's suing Orange County for violating her civil rights and for an illegal search and seizure.

The O.C. Sheriff's Department had no comment.

'RHOC' Star Squad Not Down with Racism From Possible New Cast Member

4/1/2016 11:09 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


3:04 PM PT -- Kelly Meza-Dodd tells TMZ, "I am truly embarrassed. There is no excuse for bad behavior or comments that offend anyone. That video does not represent who I really am and I apologize for acting irresponsibly."


'Real Housewives of Orange County' star Heather Dubrow is drawing a line -- she will NOT hang with rumored new cast member Kelly Meza-Dodd after some racist comments Kelly made on camera.

We caught Heather at LAX and showed her Kelly's racist rant Tuesday night outside The Nice Guy. For those who missed it, Kelly -- who seemed like she'd knocked back one too many -- told a camera guy point blank she didn't like black guys.

Dubrow has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to racism. 

Apollo Nida Feds Want My '64 Skylark!!!

3/29/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325-apollo-nida-INSTAGRAM-01'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Apollo Nida can't get the feds off his back -- due to a more than $1 million tab -- and now they're targeting another one of his prized possessions.

Court docs show the government wants him to put his 1964 Buick Skylark on the auction block to help pay down the nearly $1.94 million in restitution he owes. 

Nida -- who is in the can serving 8 years for money laundering and bank fraud -- already got his 2014 Ducati and Yamaha Raptor ATV seized.

A '64 Skylark in mint condition fetches $25k ... which is barely a dent in that debt.  



'RHOA' Star Cynthia Bailey My Breakup Isn't Just About the Show

3/28/2016 10:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star Cynthia Bailey is desperately trying to save her marriage ... or she's completely given up hope -- depending on your take of this video.

Cynthia arrived solo at LAX over the weekend. We broke the story ... she and husband Peter Thomas are now living in separate cities. When we asked about the split, she insisted there's more to it than 'RHOA' drama or story lines.

But watch what happens when our photog asked if there's a reconciliation in the works. Either Peter's still got a shot ... or he can start making permanent moving plans.

'RHOA' Star Porsha Williams Blindsided By Beatdown Video

3/27/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325_Porsha-Williams_Real-Housewives-of-ATL-logo'Real Housewives of Atlanta' producers let a giant skeleton out of Porsha Williams' closet at the final reunion show taping ... raw footage of her dark alley assault on pal Jami Ziegler.

We broke the story ... Porsha allegedly attacked Jami at a party in December while being filmed ... all because she didn't like the person Jami brought as her plus one.

Producers told the ladies the cameras didn't capture the fight ... since Jami ran out of the house and down a dark alley where the beatdown occurred ... but turns out it wasn't true. 

Our sources say the whole thing was captured on a camera  ... notably Porsha throwing some pretty mean punches, and the footage will air in April. 

We're told several women on the show want her kicked off since it was her third fight with castmates ... Cynthia, Kenya and now Jami, if you're keeping score.

Porsha knows how to keep the paychecks coming.

'RHOA' Cynthia Bailey Separated from Peter ... Living Miles Apart

3/25/2016 4:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325-cynthia-bailey-peter-thomas-TMZ-01Cynthia Bailey and Peter Thomas' marriage has been torn apart by 'RHOA' ... at least that's how Peter sees it, now that he's moved out of their Atlanta home.

TMZ has learned the 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' stars are now living in separate states -- CB's in their ATL home, while Peter's in their Charlotte crib.

We're told it's been this way for months, because Peter decided he doesn't want to do 'Housewives' anymore. He thinks the show drama -- which has focused on their marital issues -- is making it too hard to patch things up when cameras are off.

Despite promos for the upcoming reunion that mention cheating rumors ... we're told Cynthia doesn't think Peter's stepping out on her. No one's filed separation or divorce docs yet, but we're told it's just a matter of time. 

Teresa Giudice Day 1 ... So Lonely

3/25/2016 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0325_Teresa_Guidice_alone_launch_2Teresa Giudice has a ton of lonely nights and days ahead, and kicked off her ME time with a pensive, solo walk.

The 'Real Housewives' star took the stroll Thursday near her home in NJ ... no doubt, thinking about the next 3 plus years. Hubby, Joe Giudice, shipped off to prison on Wednesday to begin his 41 month sentence.

It won't be a walk in the park for her, and definitely NOT for Joe. 

We don't wanna say Teresa's posing or staging these pics, but ... "Show me, SAD!"

Joe Giudice Checks Into Prison Kisses Teresa's Ass G'bye

Breaking News



9:40 AM PT-- Joe's lawyer, James Leonard, tells TMZ Joe Giudice surrendered himself around noon. He was surrounded by his brother, sister, Teresa and several family members. "It was obviously a very emotional day, but this is a very strong family with a tremendous support system and they will get through this, just as they did when Teresa was away."


Here's Joe and Teresa Giudice saying their last goodbyes -- in public -- before Joe heads to the slammer for the next 41 months ... and sharing one final kiss on the way out.  

After this pic was taken, Joe got in a car headed to Fort Dix, a low security prison in New Jersey -- where he'll serve time for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.

It's kinda like a passing of the baton -- Teresa already served 11 months for the same charges. 

Bravo to Joe Giudice You're No Teresa No Special for You!

3/23/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0322_teresa_joe_guidice_tmz-gettyJoe Giudice is getting the bum's rush from Bravo as he enters prison ... at least compared to his wife.

Production sources tell TMZ ... the network will not give Joe the same 3-part special Teresa got when she was in the big house. In fact, Bravo's not doing anything special. Joe will be filmed Wednesday as he enters the prison gates, but it'll be for season 7 of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," which won't air for months.  

Joe will essentially disappear from sight during his 41-month stay, unless it affects Teresa and the kids. His story line will only live in her orbit. 

For her part, Teresa will be standing by her man. We're told she has no plan to pull the plug on her marriage.

Porsha Williams Fainting Spell Mid-Flight

3/16/2016 2:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0316_porsha-williams_tmz-2Porsha Williams had a medical emergency in the middle of a flight from Atlanta to Miami when she fainted in her seat, prompting that call ... "Is there a doctor on board?"

Sources on the plane tell TMZ ... Porsha was in her first class seat when she got woozy. We're told 3 doctors actually responded to the flight attendant's call.

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' cast member was traveling by herself, but we spoke with her sister, Lauren ... who tells us one of the doctors helped PW come to with the aid of a sugar pill. Lauren says Porsha has a low blood sugar issue and has had fainting spells in the past. 

Paramedics met the plane upon arrival in Miami, checked out Porsha and felt she was fine. 

Ex 'RHOBH' Star Files for Divorce ... Like I Said, He's Not My Type

3/14/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0311-marisa-dean-zanuck-instagram-getty-01Former 'Housewives of Beverly Hills' castmember Marisa Zanuck and her husband Dean are calling it quits after 13 years of marriage. 

Marisa filed the divorce docs in L.A. last month, but the writing's been on the wall for at least 3 years or so. Back in season 3 of 'RHOBH' she called Dean "not her type" ... but tried to blow it off, claiming Dean loved her loose lips. Guess not.

Marisa wants she and Dean to have joint legal and physical custody of their two boys, ages 11 and 13.

Dean comes from Hollywood royalty ... his late father was Richard D. Zanuck, the big time of "Jaws," "Cocoon," "Driving Miss Daisy" and more.
