Kyle Richards Kim Zolciak, Come To 'RHOBH'! ... You're Not Racist

4/26/2018 6:49 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards says that if Kim Zolciak ever found herself in the 90210 she'd be welcomed with open arms by the "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" cast now that she's left the Atlanta franchise. 

We got Kyle leaving Craig's in West Hollywood where she came to Kim's defense saying she didn't think Zolciak was being racist when she threw her now-infamous "roach nest" insult at NeNe Leakes, and then later blamed racism on social media during the reunion show.

Kyle says the reunion show was brutal for Kim and hard to watch and, although Kyle's not taking sides, it's evident she believes Kim's being genuine when she says she's open to all people, which Kim attempted to clear up in a lengthy apology on social media.  

During the last RHOA Reunion episode, I made a comment that confused and offended people. I sincerely apologize. Edited out of context, I understand why my remark angered people. Racism is a sad reality in the United States. It has been prevalent throughout our country's history. Let me be very clear, I do NOT support, tolerate or put up with any form of racism, hate or other discrimination. My love for ALL people runs deep - I am open to all and always have been. I was heartbroken when I watched the last few minutes of the episode and saw how my words were taken out of context. My comment that seemingly “racism didn’t exist 10 years ago” was made as part of a larger, emotional 45-minute conversation about how, sadly, social media has become a hub for hate. Immediately following my confusing comment, I also said that "it's not as real as it is now" referring to the power of social media. But those remarks didn’t make the show. I believe that social media has made a centuries-old issue more real. Before social media, the public simply observed the news. Now, the public actively participates and has an opportunity to take action – in real time. But this is a double edged sword. Now, when false accusations are made, they are amplified by online platforms regardless of their merit. This wasn’t the case 10 years ago when I started on RHOA. I truly pray that the people wishing horrible things on others, and on me, channel that energy into something positive. Our world would be a much better place if you do. I am committed to making this world a better place to live. I will continue to learn from, and be open to, ALL people.

'RHOA' Star Marlo Hampton Kim Zolciak Is Racist She Just Doesn't Know It

4/26/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'RHOA' star Marlo Hampton is calling BS on Kim Zolciak, saying she is 100 percent racist for saying NeNe Leakes lives in a “roach nest," even if Kim denies it.

We spoke to Marlo after Sunday's 'RHOA' reunion show, where most of the cast ganged up on Zolciak for the "roach" comment. Marlo says, in the black community, roaches are synonymous with poverty and imply you're living in the projects, which is a far cry from NeNe's gorgeous Atlanta-area home ... and Kim should've put two and two together. 

Kim vehemently denied she was being racist, and was caught on camera calling racism today "bulls**t" because of social media. She also said she felt attacked by five African-American women on the show.

Marlo says that's the problem in the first place ... Kim's ignorance to her own racist comments, and that the reunion should've served as an eye-opener. Might be a little late for the schooling ... Kim's not coming back next season. 

Kandi Burruss Who Cares Kim's Done with 'RHOA' ... She Hasn't Held a Peach in Years!!!

4/21/2018 8:32 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kandi Burruss doesn't think it's a big deal Kim Zolciak's done with "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... because she says her presence was hardly felt anyway.

We got Kandi at LAX Friday night and asked her about Kim telling us she's leaving 'RHOA' for good because it's too stressful. Kandi agrees it's demanding, but for a non-peach holder like Kim ... she's not offering any sympathy.

Kandi also tells us Kim wasn't getting along with any of the Housewives -- except maybe one -- so the ladies are fine with her farewell and more than ready to move on.

As for Kim and Kandi's Bravo spin-off ratings beef -- Burruss sets the record straight ... about how she was simply setting the record straight.

Gretchen Rossi I Didn't Have Surgery! It's Just IVF and This '$50 Boob Job'

4/19/2018 3:47 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Gretchen Rossi shot down rumors she surgically enhanced her boobs by stripping down, and opening up ... about her struggle to get pregnant.

We spoke to the former 'RHOC' star Thursday about the flood of haters on social media claiming she'd either gained a bunch of weight and/or had a boob job. They were reacting to her appearance last week on Andy Cohen's "Watch What Happens Live."

Gretchen made it clear she has nothing to hide, and revealed what she calls her $50 boob job. Watch the video ... you'll get it. She also admits she has put on a few pounds, because she's getting hormone shots for IVF.

Gretchen and her fiance, Slade Smiley, are going through a second round of IVF, and she told us they're right in the middle of a critical stage.

The overall message to her haters -- step off, she's trying to get pregnant. Oh, and she buys really, REALLY good bras.

Kim Zolciak I'm Officially Done with 'RHOA'!!!

4/14/2018 3:34 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Kim Zolciak's not mincing words -- she says her time on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" has come to an end ... and she's not leaving the door open for a return.

We got Kim and her hubby Kroy Biermann at LAX Saturday, and asked if reports of her leaving the show are true ... she tells us they are. Kim says it's too much stress ... and she's "never, never" doing it again.

As you know ... Kim's an OG on 'RHOA' but left for a few seasons to star on her own Bravo spin-off, "Don't Be Tardy," which -- as she reminds our guy -- is still going strong.

She returned for this season of 'RHOA' but clearly didn't have a good time ... most likely due to her ongoing feud with longtime rival, NeNe Leakes

Speaking of feuds ... Kim had no comment on Marlon Wayans.

Brielle Biermann Leave My Mom Alone, Marlon ... But, HMU for 'White Chicks 2'!!!

4/12/2018 10:44 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Brielle Biermann's conflicted about Marlon Wayans' "White Chicks 2" joke about her mom -- on one hand she's not down with it, but on the other hand ... it's kinda funny.

We got Kim Zolciak's daughter at LAX Thursday and asked her how she felt about Wayans making fun of her mom's appearance ... and her response is kind of surprising. Brielle admits she's a huge "White Chicks" fan, and if Marlon had cracked on anyone else ... she'd probably have no beef.

But, Brielle's protective of her mother -- who we know was NOT HAPPY about the dig -- so her message to Marlon's pretty clear ... back off!

No we are not in production on White Chicks 2. The fuck?!

A post shared by Marlon Wayans (@marlonwayans) on

Here's the bright side -- Brielle says there can be a happy compromise. She's open to being in a 'White Chicks' sequel in place of Kim ... and is willing to go above and beyond for the role.

Hear that, Marlon?

Cynthia Bailey It Is a Tumor!!! But, Thank God It's Out

Cynthia Bailey's breathing a sigh of relief now that a mini-pumpkin looking tumor is out of her back and locked away in a container.

We got these shots of the Lipoma tumor recently removed from the 'RHOA' star's back. The tumor turned out, thankfully, to be benign -- it was deeply embedded, partially under a muscle. Doctors told her it was much larger than they expected.

For the squeamish ... the fatty tumor is the size of a golf ball. Think orange Silly Putty, but scarier.

Cynthia said she first felt a bump on her back near her left shoulder blade about 2 months ago, but thought nothing of it until it started growing.

She's recovering at home, and we know what you're thinking. We're told the answer is NO ... she's not keeping it as a souvenir.

Joanna Krupa I Love the UFC's Joanna ... 'Pol**ks Ruuule!'

4/1/2018 12:15 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Here's Joanna Krupa declaring her allegiance to Poland's #1 UFC star, Joanna Jedrzejczyk ... and using some questionable vernacular along the way. 

We got Krupa -- who moved from Poland to the U.S. when she was 5 -- in the Bev Hills ... where 'The Real Housewives' star told us she was a huge fan of her same-name sister.

"I love her. She’s Polish, of course I support her!" Krupa told TMZ Sports.

But when we asked if JJ could beat Rose Namajunas in their UFC title rematch ... that's when things got a little dicey.

"She can do it, she’s a Pol**k. Pol**k’s rule!"

"We're driven ... especially if you come from a communist country you have that in your blood."

FYI, the P-word ain't really the most P.C. term ... and Poland hasn't technically been communist in 3 decades.

But, hey -- we're sure JJ still appreciates all the love. 

Joanna Krupa Make Mine a Grande Diamond!!! Flashes Engagement Rock

3/26/2018 1:54 PM PDT

Newly engaged Joanna Krupa's coffee runs are a lot sweeter ... thanks to the giant diamond she gets to wrap around her cup now.

Krupa's new engagement ring was on full display as she grabbed Starbucks Monday morning in Tampa. The former 'Real Housewives of Miami' star announced over the weekend she said "yes" to a businessman named Douglas Nunes.

Good news for them, but kind of a shock considering she'd only finalized her divorce from ex-husband Romain Zago less than 8 months ago.

It appears Joanna's rebound theory is ... rock on!

Kim Zolciak Calls Cops on Car Thief ... Hey Loser, We Got You on Camera!!!

3/14/2018 10:16 AM PDT
Exclusive Details

Kim Zolciak called the cops Wednesday morning after an alleged burglar broke into her daughter's car at their home ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with Milton PD in Georgia tell TMZ ... police responded to a call from Kim at her house saying she believed one of their cars had been broken into. Sources close to the 'Real Housewife' tell us it was actually Brielle's car ... and Brielle's purse and wallet got jacked.

It's unclear if cops have a suspect yet, but Kim seems pretty confident her security cams should help bust the perp.

She tweeted out, "Hey you loser we got your ass on camera stealing our sh*t! You are a dumb f**k!!"

Story developing ...

'RHONY' Star Sonja Morgan Whoops!! My Gown's Going Down ... But Show Goes On!!!

3/9/2018 8:45 AM PST

'Real Housewife of New York' star Sonja Morgan turned a cabaret revue into a full-on burlesque strip tease when her wrap dress unraveled in front of a packed crowd.

Sonja was dancing backup Thursday night for fellow 'Housewife' Luann de Lesseps during her #CountessAndFriends cabaret in NYC. Sonja was putting down some serious white girl dancing, and seemed like a seasoned, fearless performer. Maybe too fearless.

The dress came undone, her girls came popping out, and through it all ... Sonja did not skip a beat. 

Best of all ... Luann was singing her hit, "Money Can't Buy You Class" when the wardrobe malfunction happened. Awesome timing.

Kyle Richards A Freakin' Rat Sat at My Table!!! And I Only Got 50% Off

2/20/2018 6:57 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kyle Richards is refusing to turn rat on the NYC restaurant where an actual rat pulled up a chair, and joined her for a meal!

We got the 'Real Housewives' star Monday at LAX and asked about the images she posted of the hungry rodent that ruined her lunch earlier that day in Manhattan. 

Kyle told us the "Ratatouille" experience is by far her worst restaurant nightmare -- even though she's had some doozies -- but the crazy thing is she won't name the restaurant.

And adding insult to her rat-faced injury -- the eatery didn't even comp her meal!! Maybe they have to tip the rat?

Luann de Lesseps Rejects Plea Deal In Felony Drunken Arrest

2/14/2018 7:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps ain't afraid of no felony charges, apparently ... because she's rejecting a plea deal offer from prosecutors.

The 'Real Housewives of NY' star's attorney was in court Wednesday morning for a hearing on her drunk and disorderly arrest in Palm Beach on Christmas Eve. Prosecutors offered her a deal during the hearing ... and her side turned it down.

Prosecutors didn't lay out details of their offer.

Rejecting the deal is a pretty bold move on Luann's part. She's been charged with a felony count of resisting an officer with violence for the incident -- not to mention 2 misdemeanors ... trespassing and disorderly intoxication.

She could get up to 5 years in prison for the felony alone, so ... someone's feeling lucky.
