Kourtney Kardashian

DUMPS SCOTT DISICK

'He Chose Partying'

7/6/2015 8:31 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706-kourtney-scott-getty-tmz

Kourtney Kardashian has finally pulled the plug on her relationship with Scott Disick ... kicking her baby daddy to the curb after his partying habits got out of control ... sources tell TMZ. 

Our well-placed sources -- and they're solid -- tell us Scott hasn't come home to the family house in Calabasas in over a month and Kourtney lost her patience. 

As one source put it, "His partying lately has made her make this tough decision."

We're told Kourtney is also frustrated with Scott's friends -- and believes they're enabling his substance abuse. 

Scott and Kourtney have been together since 2006. They have 3 kids together. 

It's well-documented that Kourtney and Scott have been rocky over the years -- but we're told, "but now, after 3 kids, it's gotten old and she has to do what's best for the kids."

As for Scott, he was last spotted in Monte Carlo -- getting touchy-feely with celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli. 

Sources tell us Scott knew the relationship had ended -- because he was telling people in Monte Carlo that he was "newly single."

... In Sin City

EXCLUSIVE

0705-khloe-kardashian-james-harden-03Khloe Kardashian and James Harden couldn't keep their hands off each other in Las Vegas this weekend ... and TMZ Sports has a PIC of the PDA. 

The two hit the pool at the Encore Hotel in Las Vegas on Saturday ... and as you can see in the photo, they were pretty affectionate right out in the open -- more proof they're full on dating. 

Sources at the pool tell us they were doing couply things -- she was rubbing his arms and his stomach while they kicked it in a cabana with about 20 other people. 

Later that night, they had a romantic dinner together at Red 8 -- before going to the Chris Brown concert together. 

Meantime, Lamar Odom still thinks there's hope ... 

Brandi To Joanna

I May Be a Real Bitch

But So are You

7/5/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-brandi-glanville-joanna-krupa-02

Brandi Glanville has unveiled her defense in the defamation case Joanna Krupa filed against her ... Joanna's at least as much of a bitch as her, so she should shut up.

As we reported, Joanna's suing Brandi, claiming she was defamed when Brandi told Andy Cohen her vagina smelled like fish.

Brandi says in new legal docs what she's doing is nothing compared to Joanna's campaign of bitchiness, saying Joanna taunted her on Twitter by giving her the finger after the Hard Rock in Tampa cancelled Brandi's personal appearance.

And Brandi says Joanna has publicly ridiculed her, claiming she was a drunk and a racist with a "little brain" ... and she's trailer trash.

It gets worse. Brandi notes Joanna had the audacity to wear a "TEAM RIMES" tank top in public. 

Anyone heard the expression, "A pox on both of your houses?"

Scott Disick

Kourtney 'Fuming' and 'Worried' ...

He's Hooking Up and Off the Wagon

7/4/2015 1:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0706-scott-disick-launch-splash-01Kourtney Kardashian is telling friends she has no doubt ... Scott Disick is hooking up with the chick he was all handsy with in Monte Carlo, but she's also deeply worried he's lapsed and fallen back into substance abuse. 

Our sources say Kourtney believes the woman, celebrity stylist Chloe Bartoli, is an opportunist and taking advantage of Scott, whom Kourtney believes is getting wasted again. We're told she knows Chloe and, as we reported, Scott knows her as well ... they even dated.

Our sources say Kourtney's sisters have the same view as her and on Friday they all went from simmer to boil, targeting their anger at both Scott and Chloe. 

Kourtney hasn't made any decisions about the fate of her relationship with Scott, but we're told it's already in a "fragile state." 

'Basketball Wives' Royce Reed

Don't Pin Tampon Mess On Me

7/4/2015 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-royce-reed-tmz-05

Royce Reed's landlord is accusing her of clogging her dance studio plumbing ... with excessive tampons, and he's getting revenge by kicking her out on her ass ... according to Reed, anyway. 

The "Basketball Wives" star -- and Dwight Howard's baby mama -- just got slapped with eviction docs for her Orlando dance studio. The landlord says she missed rent in April and wants her gone, pronto.

Meanwhile, Royce filed her own docs ... saying she DID pay, even though the studio's become a real s**thole -- the plumbing backed up and flooded the joint. Not a great setting for dance classes.

In the docs, Royce says the landlord tried to blame it on tampons, and wanted her to cough up the dough to fix it. Her reply? There's no evidence the offending fem products are hers or her students. 

If that wasn't enough to tank her biz, Royce also says he leased out the neighboring space to a gun store -- intending to make her dance studio less desirable to kids. 

Royce wants the landlord to flush the eviction.

'The Bachelorette' Producers

We Love Sex on the Show!!!

7/3/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-kaitlyn-nick-bachelorette-getty-01Kaitlyn Bristowe and Nick Viall apparently were the wet dreams of "The Bachelorette" producers ... they were drooling to make a story line out of the sexual tryst, but the other guys wouldn't bite. 

Sources connected with the show tell TMZ, some of the contestants definitely knew Kaitlyn and Nick had sex. We're told producers did everything they could to goose those contestants into talking about it and making it a big deal.

Now here's the rub. The contestants wouldn't bite. We're told they all knew producers wanted to make it a story line and a source of conflict, but they felt if they did that it would help Nick and therefore hurt them.

The show has still not squarely addressed the liaison. 

Miss USA

Trump Won't Make a Penny From Reelz

7/2/2015 10:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0702-miss-usa-reelz-021

The CEO of Reelz, which has agreed to run the Miss USA pageant, tells TMZ, Donald Trump will lose money because the fee the network is paying is way less than the cost of production.

Stan Hubbard tells us, he made the decision to air the pageant because it's a TV show, not a political event, and the women participating should not be punished for Trump's remarks.

Hubbard thinks it's hypocritical for people to demand a boycott, because it's no different from buying music or watching TV shows and movies featuring entertainers who have wacky views.

The CEO says he personally disagrees strongly with Trump's remarks about Mexicans, but he feels strongly the pageant should not be the ultimate victim.

As for money, Hubbard says "Trump is not going to profit from what we're paying. What we've agreed to pay doesn't even dent the cost of production."

Hubbard says right now there are no advertisers and it will be a challenge given the political climate and the July 4th weekend, where everyone's gone. But he says Trump won't see a penny of ad revenue.

Hubbard also says pageant organizers are trying to find a Hispanic host. He also says a series of PSAs promoting "Hispanic non-political causes" will air during the show.

Miss USA will air on Reelz July 12.

NeNe Leakes

I'm Not Doing Season 8 'Housewives'

Not Even a Little Bit

7/2/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

NeNe Leakes made it clear to our photog ... 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' is on its own next season, because she will not appear at all ... not even occasionally.

Producers floated the possibility of a reduced role for NeNe in Season 8, but she shot that down in a big way Wednesday at LAX.

The buzz is that the show is in trouble without her. NeNe seems to agree.

And this is interesting ... she said her decision to leave the show never had anything to do with money.  

As we reported, she's signed on to do an ABC game show, "To Tell the Truth."

‘Teen Mom’ Mackenzie McKee

I Have A Sex Tape

... But You Can't See It

7/2/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-mackenzie-mckee-vivid-TMZ-01Mackenzie McKee has gone to Vivid Entertainment about a sex tape, telling them if they dare release it she will nail their ass harder than Farrah Abraham's ever was. 

TMZ obtained a letter Mackenzie's lawyer fired off to the porn giant, acknowledging there's a tape but warning it will remain private, or else.

It's unclear how Vivid got hold of the tape, but here's what IS clear ... the only way Vivid can release the video is if she signs off, and her lawyer has given Vivid 10 days to declare its intentions.

As for her sex tape partner, it's unclear who it is, but she's been a married woman for 2 years.

And you gotta see the video ... she says 2 housewives secretly hate each other, and she names names. 

Carlos Slim

Mexican Billionaire Says

'No Gracias' To 'Apprentice'

7/1/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-carlos-slim-donald-trump-tmz-01Mexican mogul Carlos Slim sits on a telecommunications empire worth billions, making him the perfect replacement for Trump on "The Apprentice," but it’s not gonna happen, TMZ has learned.

Slim’s rep tells TMZ, "No creo que le interese. Esta muy ocupado sobre todo con Las Fundaciones y la labor social."

Rough translation: He’s not interested because his foundations and social work already keep him very busy.

As for Slim's views on Trump, one of Slim's TV companies, Ora TV, followed in the footsteps of Univision and Televisa and cut ties with Trump on a pending project.

Trump … mas remedio tiene un muerto.

NeNe Leakes

Don't Count Me

Out of 'RHOA' Just Yet

6/30/2015 9:23 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0630-nene-leakes-tmz-01NeNe Leakes isn't done with "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... TMZ has learned producers want her to come back in a reduced role, and she's game.

Our sources say, although NeNe made it seem she was gone for good, the show's producers are still angling to have her appear periodically during the season.  

As we reported, NeNe bailed on the show because the money wasn't right. She's already committed to doing a primetime network sitcom, and the only way she'd continue on 'RHOA' was if they delivered a wheelbarrow full of cash ... to make the crushing workload worthwhile.

But our sources say NeNe is open to a part-time role on 'RHOA,' again if the money is right and it fits with her sitcom schedule.

We're told Bravo is absolutely interested, and the negotiations will begin soon.

Stay tuned.

NeNe Leakes

Leaving Real Housewives of ATL

Over Money

6/29/2015 8:52 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

0629_Nene-Leakes_tmzNeNe Leakes is finally hitting the road after 7 seasons on 'RHOA' cause she couldn’t get the big bucks she was looking for ... and now the show’s worried she’s taking the fans with her.

Sources tell TMZ the reason for the NeNe’s change of heart had to do with contract negotiations.

Everyone part of the show is at a loss for words over NeNe’s sudden departure since the show was just about to start filming its new season in the next couple of weeks.

Cast members have been dropping like flies recently but now producers are scrambling because they just lost their queen bee ... and we’re told they’re worried they’ll take a huge hit in the ratings over it.

The show already found a replacement -- actress, model and singer Kim Fields -- but no one can really replace NeNe who was arguably the network’s biggest star.

NeNe is going to be focusing on new projects outside the biz ... one of which is her own clothing store that we reported on before.  

You know what they say, you gotta spend money to make money … guess Bravo never learned that lesson.
