Breaking News

0728-phaedra-parks-TMZ-01A guy claiming he had a bomb strapped to his leg went looking for Phaedra Parks in her Atlanta office Thursday morning -- but he got the wrong building.

Police evacuated the office building the man walked into on Peachtree Road and responded to the scene. According to witnesses he walked in demanding to see Phaedra and said, "I'm not leaving. I've got a bomb." 

The 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star -- an entertainment lawyer -- does have an office on Peachtree, but it's a few buildings down from the one the man entered.

We don't even know if Phaedra was in her office. She's been in Philadelphia this week.

'Shark Tank's' Scrub Daddy You're Sponging Off Our Customers!

7/28/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727-scrub-daddy-01The company behind Scrub Daddy -- the most successful product ever pitched on "Shark Tank" -- is accusing a man of tricking customers with a knockoff sponge.

Scrub Daddy says Brian Reaux's attempt to push "Scrub 'N EZ" will confuse faithful Scrub Daddy customers because of the similar name and use of a smiley face ... this according to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ.

In the docs, Scrub Daddy also has beef with Reaux marketing his sponge holder as fitting "perfectly in Scrub Daddy [sponges]." 

SD has reportedly generated more than $75 mil since striking a deal with Lori Greiner on the show. The company wants "Scrub 'N EZ" to change its name, and quit using Scrub Daddy in advertising. 

Teresa & Joe Giudice Wedding Photo Album Raided ... Photog Sues

7/27/2016 2:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0727-teresa-joe-giudice-tmz-01Teresa and Joe Giudice's wedding photos are at the center of a legal battle involving their photographer and a reality TV blog.

The wedding photog, Neil Clipper, is suing a NYC-based blog for using a pic from the Giudices' 1999 nuptials -- a shot he says he took, and the site used without his permission.

According to docs obtained by TMZ ... Neil says he owns the rights to the photo which was used for a 'Before They Were Famous' post on the 'Housewives.'

He included the pic in the lawsuit -- Joe and Teresa looked so young and innocent. Of course, Joe is 4 months into a 41-month prison stint for conspiracy to commit wire and bankruptcy fraud.

Aaron Rodgers I Don't Watch 'Bachelorette' 'Inappropriate' to Air Family Drama

7/27/2016 6:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0727-aaron-jordan-rodgers-getty-02Aaron Rodgers says he has NOT watched his little bro, Jordan, compete on "The Bachelorette" -- but is clearly upset about the episode that put a spotlight on his family rift.

The Packers QB spoke with WISN in Wisconsin -- and was asked specifically if he was affected by last week's episode, when Jordan and his family explained how Aaron has cut them off from his life. 

"I haven't seen the show, to be honest with you, so it hasn't really affected me a whole lot," Rodgers said. 

When asked to explain why he no longer speaks to his brother or his parents, Aaron said: 

"As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm just -- I'm not going to speak on those things, but I wish him well in the competition."

Translation -- Aaron ain't too happy that his family aired their dirty laundry on prime time television ... and it seems to have only made the rift worse.

There's more ... Tammy also says she's got belly issues after surgery for cervical cancer a few years ago and liposuction would he HUGE in helping her get her ideal bikini body back.

"Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson's got some advice for Ted Cruz -- get off the tracks, the Donald Trump express is coming through. 

We got Phil on his way out of the RNC Wednesday night and he was fired up about "Lyin' Ted" going rogue -- refusing to endorse Trump during his speech.

Check out Phil's take -- it's interesting because he admits he was a Cruz man ... until Cruz got crushed by Trump. He's moved on, and thinks it's time for Ted to do the same. 

'Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta' Star Cops Say Not So Innocent in 'Brutality' Video

7/21/2016 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Tommie Lee was flat out lying when she claimed she was brutalized for no reason by cops -- at least according to the police report -- but she maintains she's innocent.

Tommie blasted the Georgia State Patrol Tuesday, posting a video of an officer yanking her from the backseat of a Jeep back in January and arresting her. She claimed she was a passenger and was manhandled for no reason. 

According to the police report -- obtained by TMZ -- when deputies pulled the Jeep over in the ATL area they noticed lots of movement in the vehicle.

Deputies say the guy in the driver's seat first lied, but then admitted he had switched with Tommie -- who jumped in the back.

0720-tommie-lee-alleged-injuries-instagramThat would explain why deputies wanted Tommie out of the backseat. They demanded she step out of the vehicle several times, but she held her ground. Deputies then pulled her out and hooked her up.

Cops say Tommie's eyes were watery, bloodshot and her speech was slurred, so she was booked for drunk driving, disorderly conduct and driving on an expired license.

And, for bad measure, she peed herself in the cruiser on the way to the station.

Tommie tells us the police report is BS, and insists she did nothing wrong. On the peeing ... she blames deputies for not taking her to a bathroom.

7/19/2016 7:13 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

Aaron Rodgers' family drama is now front and center on the 'Bachelorette' -- and even JoJo Fletcher is pleading for the NFL superstar to reconcile with his brother. 

Aaron's bro, Jordan, brought JoJo back to Chico for his hometown date on Monday night's episode -- and things got dramatic when there were two empty chairs at the family dinner table ... presumably for Aaron and his GF, Olivia Munn

JoJo explained that Aaron has cut off his relationship with his family for the last 1 or 2 years -- and Jordan got flustered when she asked him to explain why. 

It's still unclear exactly what went wrong ... but the family made it seem that the ball is in Aaron's court -- and implied that fame got to his head.  

So far, Aaron has been mum on the situation. 

'Real Housewives of Toronto' Pregnancy Got Me Fired From Show!

7/19/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

"The Real Housewives of Toronto" producers allegedly dumped one of their cast members when her pregnancy didn't jibe with their shooting schedule.

Ariane Bellamar -- who's already been on TV as one of the "Beverly Hills Nannies" -- is nearly 9 months along and says the show was excited to have her child birth as a story line for Season 1 of the Canadian spinoff.

That all changed on Friday when her c-section date shifted by a week and ended up conflicting with an all-cast retreat. Ariane says that same day, she got a letter of termination.  

Ariane is pissed -- not only about getting dropped -- but about a bunch of risky things she claims producers asked her to do during shoots. You've gotta see her "pump and dump" accusation. 

We've reached out multiple times to the show's producers, so far no word back.

NeNe Leakes Too Busy For ‘RHOA’

7/18/2016 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0718-nene-leakes-real-housewives-TMZ-01NeNe Leakes' streak on "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is finally coming to an end ... at least based on what's NOT been going on during season 9 tapings. 

TMZ has learned they've been shooting for weeks now, and NeNe is nowhere in sight.

It seemed like she was possibly coming back to the main cast after being named a guest last season. She's been busy with a HSN clothing line, one woman tour, new game show and a stint on "Fashion Police."

Our 'RHOA' sources tell us producers have added at least one new cast member, and NeNe -- the only remaining OG ATL housewife -- doesn't look to be part of plans going forward.

We're told "guest appearances" are always a possibility, but as of now producers aren't counting on having NeNe.

We suspect Kim Zolciak might have 2 little words for her ole frenemy ...
