Lisa Vanderpump Special Place at Gala for Dogs Affected by Woolsey Wildfire

11/16/2018 2:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's opened her heart and wallet for dogs all over the world ... but those affected by the California wildfire are a plight that hits close to home, and she's doing her best to help.

The 'RHOBH' star tells TMZ ... her annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Fundraising Gala was once again an incredible success thanks to several familiar faces who, as she puts it, know how to walk the walk. As we reported ... a portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

It's truly incredible the work Lisa's done to help man's best friend ... from her gala to opening a sanctuary in China that's already adopted nearly 800 dogs. 

We also talked to Lisa about how a very tough 2018 for her personally has meant less time with her 'Housewives' castmates -- on camera and off.

However, LV made it clear ... you're getting the wrong idea if you think her reduced time on 'RHOBH' means she's leaving the show. She told us exactly where her loyalties lie and why.  

Lisa Vanderpump If I Were Leaving 'RHOBH' ... You'd Hear it From Me!

11/15/2018 7:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11/15 -- We got Lisa out later Wed, and she insisted that if there was any news about her role on the show, she wouldn't let the rumor mill churn, she would address it herself.

She also had a message for everyone clamoring for news about the show -- priorities, people!

Lisa Vanderpump has NOT decided to leave "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... contrary to new reports.

Sources close to Lisa tell TMZ ... the reality is, reality shows are not the center of her life the way they used to be, but that doesn't mean she's hanging up the towel. Sources very, very close to Lisa say she honestly has not made a decision about future seasons, although she has finished filming Season 8.

As for her decision not to go to France ... we're told her priority was her Vanderpump Foundation Gala, which she's throwing Thursday night. A portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

Lisa, we're told, finds it a little absurd that anyone is focusing on the next season of 'Real Housewives' when it seems half the state of California is on fire. As it was put to us, "She doesn't give a s**t about casting for Season 9."

As for why she's been a lady of few words on the current season ... she's emotionally upset over the death of her brother, who passed days before filming began for season 8.

From our point of view ... it feels like a toss-up as to whether Lisa returns, but it's clear based on our conversations ... she hasn't decided one way or the other.

Luann de Lesseps Celebrates 100+ Days of Sobriety And 'Housewives' Return

11/14/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps is making a strong comeback to close out 2018 ... nearly a year after spiraling out of control and getting arrested in Florida.

We've learned Luann recently celebrated more than 100 days of being clean and sober, and it's triggered a positive domino effect in her personal life. She's returned as a regular for an all-new season of 'Housewives,' and is already shooting scenes.

We're told she missed the reunion episode taping back in July, but only because she'd checked into rehab.

That was her second time in rehab since her Palm Beach arrest on Christmas Eve 2017 ... for allegedly attacking a cop during a drunken rampage. She eventually struck a sweet plea deal.

Luann tells us, "I take my sobriety very seriously and continue taking it one day at a time. Every step forward is a means toward a better life for me and my family."

On the family front, we told you her ex-husband and kids had sued her for breaking her divorce deal -- but we're told she's patching things up with them and working on an amicable resolution.

Luann's also been traveling around the country with her cabaret show, and recently launched a jewelry line that was filmed for an episode of 'RHONY' at SuperJeweler in Manhattan. 

She credits yoga and the Zen surroundings of her new lakefront home in upstate NY for keeping her grounded ... and sober.

Camille Grammer Loses Home In California Wildfire

11/11/2018 8:00 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Camille Grammer is one of the many people who lost their homes in the terrible California wildfires.

Firefighters fought valiantly to save the home, but the fire was just too ferocious. It burned to the ground Saturday night.

Camille has had a rough go, we're told her assistant died last week,

So far, 177 homes have been lost in the Woolsey fire and things could get a lot worse. The Santa Ana winds are expected to kick up Sunday morning and last for 2 days. The winds are the most treacherous condition firefighters have been battling. 

All of Malibu has been evacuated. Lots of people are enraged that Donald Trump has cast blame on Californians on the fires ... a baseless claim that only makes a terrible situation even worse. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp Make Way For My Stepmama!!! Meg Ryan May Appear on 'RHOBH'

11/10/2018 10:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Make room Charlie Sheen, 'cause there may be another high-profile guest making an appearance on 'Real Housewives' ... Teddi Jo Mellencamp's future stepmom, Meg Ryan!

We got Teddi, Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards Friday at LAX. Their reaction is priceless when we "break the news" on John Mellencamp's engagement to Meg. Needless to say ... they were in the loop.

Naturally, we had to know if there was any chance Meg would make an appearance on the show. Teddi doesn't exactly rule it out but ya might wanna hold your breath on that one.

Remember, Kyle spilled the beans back in August on Denise Richards' ex, Charlie, possibly making an appearance this season. With Meg now in the mix you have to wonder, who else is gonna show up?

Danielle Staub My Ex Secretly Listed Our House!! He Left Me Out in the Cold

11/8/2018 2:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Imagine finding out your estranged spouse put your house up for sale without telling you, and if not for a friend's phone call ... you'd never know it -- well that's exactly what happened to Danielle Staub

Sources tell TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star found out about the listing first thing Thursday morning when a friend called her. We're told Marty Caffrey, Danielle's estranged husband, is listing their NJ mansion for over $2 million.  

We're told Danielle started crying when she got the news. That's totally understandable because Danielle currently lives there with her youngest daughter! We're told she called Marty to hear it from the horse's mouth, and then called her lawyer to see if she can block the sale. 

Danielle and Marty are going through a messy divorce, but they've been sharing the mansion since the split. Yes, it's 7,500 square feet, but it's still uncomfortable. We're told Danielle feels like she has to close her doors.

The brick colonial was built in 1950 and boasts 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and 10-foot ceilings. Great buy for someone, but meanwhile ... Danielle's screwed. Her rep tells us, “This is yet another example of the blatant disrespect and emotional abuse she has endured in this relationship.”

Worth noting, Marty and Danielle only got married back in May. Now suddenly, the 'Real Housewife' is gonna be an ex-wife ... with NO house.

Ouch.

Kenya Moore Gives Birth Early To 1st Child w/ Marc Daly

11/4/2018 1:50 PM PST

Kenya Moore is a mom for the first time at age 47, but she gave birth this weekend a few weeks early due to health complications.

The 'RHOA' star revealed she'd given birth to a baby girl, Brooklyn Doris Daly, early Sunday morning with her husband, Marc Daly, by her side. Kenya said she'd be delivering her baby early because she'd developed preeclampsia. She was due around Thanksgiving.

If you want to make God laugh have a plan... won't be long now. Pray for us 🙏🏾 #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers

A post shared by Kenya Moore Daly (@thekenyamoore) on

Kenya appears to be doing better now, sending out an update on her health via Instagram, saying ... "She's so perfect and strong! Marc was incredible in the deliver room. I lost a lot of blood so I'm very weak but they both were strong for me."

She added ... "God is so good. We are blessed and doing well. My heart is so full at the abundance of love for our family! We love you all."

This would be Kenya's first kid ever, and a lot of people doubted she was even pregnant when she first made the announcement earlier this year. Her ultrasound put those questions to rest ... and, obviously, an actual baby does too.

Congrats!

Larsa Pippen Files for Divorce From Scottie Pippen

11/2/2018 4:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:08 PM PT -- Larsa tells us, "It is with deep sadness that Scottie and I announce that we are legally separating. We have both tried very hard for a long time to make our marriage work and have ultimately come to the conclusion that it is best that we live separate lives."

She continues, "We have so many amazing memories together, remain best of friends and love each other very much. Our four children have always been our priority and for their sake we ask for as much privacy as possible for our family during this sensitive time."

2:59 PM PT -- According to the court docs, Larsa lists the date of separation as October 29. She's also asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 4 minor children. 

She's also asking for spousal support. Unclear how much she's seeking but they live a very wealthy lifestyle so you know it ain't gonna be nominal. 

Larsa and Scottie Pippen are getting divorced. We've learned Larsa filed legal docs Friday in L.A. County Superior Court to end their marriage. 

They've had multiple issues over the years ... Scottie filed for divorce back in 2016 but they called it off last year. Just before he filed, cops came to their home twice for domestic disturbance calls, but no one was arrested. Larsa told cops Scottie scared her.

Sources connected to the couple tell us, there's no scandal this time around. The 2 have just grown apart over the last few years and decided to end their relationship. They're still committed to co-parenting their kids, but they don't want to be married anymore.  

Larsa was hanging out at Kendall Jenner's Halloween party without Scottie -- and having a great time partying with people like Kim K and French Montana

Larsa is best friends with Kim and the Kardashians and hangs out with them a lot. 

When they filed in 2016, a rep for the couple told TMZ, "After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect."

The couple has 4 kids and married in 1997. The two moved from Miami to L.A. last year and now their son, Scotty Pippen Jr., has blossomed into one of the best high school basketball players around. 

The move was also great for their 9-year-old daughter Sophia Pippen who got cast on "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors." She was eliminated last month but the exposure is clearly huge for her career if she wants to continue in showbiz.

Teresa Giudice Breaks Silence on Joe's Deportation With Lady Liberty Crying

10/14/2018 7:07 PM PDT

Teresa Giudice seems to have broken her silence in the wake of her husband being ordered to be deported after prison ... and it looks like she (and Lady Liberty) are heartbroken. 

The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star shared a photo on Instagram Sunday depicting the Statue of Liberty holding its face and apparently crying. She captioned the pic with a ton of praying hand emojis -- so it's pretty clear she's referencing Joe

🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

A post shared by Teresa Giudice ® (@teresagiudice) on

This is the first post she's added to her IG since a judge ordered that Joe be deported back to Italy once he's finished with his stint behind bars. He's more than halfway done serving his 41-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.

As we reported ... Teresa has no plans as of now to relocate her family to Italy once Joe is deported, fearing the culture shock of an international move would do more harm than good to their 4 kids.

While some of Teresa's 'RHONJ' costars feel like she might be shedding crocodile tears over Joe's inevitable fate ... her own words (or pictures, more like) speak for themselves here.

'RHONJ' Star Kim D Teresa Doesn't Give a Rat's Ass About Joe Getting Deported

10/10/2018 3:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Teresa Giudice is a cold-hearted, good-for-nothing mom who'd rather party like a rock star than sweat about her husband Joe's pending deportation to Italy ... so claims her cast mate Kim DePaola.

The 'RHONJ' star ripped into Teresa when we spoke to her just a few hours after the news broke Joe's getting deported after he finishes serving his 41-month federal prison sentence. She doesn't have much sympathy for Joe, either ... telling us he's not a citizen, and the law's the law.

Then she went off on Teresa's alleged non-stop partying lifestyle, and joked (we think) that TG's already found a way to cash in on Joe's downfall.

Kim D's attack should come as no surprise -- they have a bitter history. Teresa once accused Kim of running a prostitution ring back in Season 8.

TMZ broke the story ... Teresa has zero plans to uproot their 4 daughters and move to Italy when their dad gets the boot, because they've made a life here and she wants to keep it that way.

Pretty sure Kim won't be delivering a homemade pan of ziti to console Teresa.

Teresa Giudice Won't Move Kids to Italy ... When Joe is Deported

10/10/2018 10:12 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

When Joe Giudice gets deported to Italy he'll have to get re-acclimated in his native country without his family ... 'cause Teresa Giudice ain't moving the kids.

Sources close to Teresa tell TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star has zero interest in uprooting their 4 daughters to a country where they have no friends and have never lived. We're told Teresa says moving them outta the country would be a culture shock and completely change their lives.

What's more ... the girls just started school where they've made countless friends. Gia's 17 and is in her final year in high school. 14-year-old Gabriella and 13-year-old Milania are in middle school ... and Audriana's only 9. 

Our source says Teresa and the kids haven't visited Joe in prison in a while.

We also spoke with Wendy Feldman -- Teresa's former crisis manager -- who tells us, "I work with people every day to get them through the system. Now of course it's harder than ever with our new administration." 

Way back in January, during the 'RHONJ' reunion show, Teresa said she was open to the idea of moving to Italy if Joe was deported.

Things change.

Joe Giudice He's Outta Here!!! Judge Orders Deportation

10/10/2018 8:38 AM PDT
Breaking News

Joe Giudice has to get the hell up outta the United States -- a judge is deporting him to his native Italy ... once he gets out of prison, that is.

The judge issued the deportation order Tuesday in Pennsylvania. The 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star had begged the judge to let him stay in the U.S. with Teresa and their 4 kids, but no dice for the Giudices.

Joe's more than halfway through serving a 41-month prison sentence for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.

Teresa was well aware deportation was a very real possibility and sounds like she's down to stand by her man. Earlier this year, during the 'RHONJ' reunion, she called Italy a beautiful place to live and said she'll embrace the change if it comes.

Well, the change is coming. Unless, Joe files a successful appeal. He has until Nov. 9 to do that.

'RHOP' Star Michael Darby Back to Work ... After Sexual Assault Charges Dropped

10/9/2018 10:25 AM PDT

"The Real Housewives of Potomac" star Michael Darby is now back on camera for Bravo after his sexual assault charges were dropped ... TMZ has confirmed.

We're told Darby has been allowed to resume shooting the upcoming season of 'RHOP.' The move comes a few days after the Montgomery County State Attorney's Office decided not to prosecute him for criminal charges over an alleged incident with a cameraman.

According to court records, obtained by TMZ, prosecutors found insufficient evidence to move forward. We broke the story ... Michael was suspended from the show late last month after a cameraman claimed Mike had groped his butt.

Michael had been facing charges of felony assault and misdemeanor improper sexual contact. 

Washington Post first reported the charges were dropped.
