And This Time I Call the Shots

4/25/2015 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Anna Chickadee Cardwell Pregnant AgainAnna Chickadee Cardwell is pregnant ... but this time around grandma won't be in charge.

Chickadee tells TMZ, she and husband Michael are 6 weeks pregnant. If Mama June reads this it will be the first time she'll learn she's going to be a grandma 2 times over.

June was calling the shots after Anna's first baby, Kaitlyn, was born, but this time June will be allowed to visit when Anna's around, but that's it. 

Anna says she doesn't trust her mom's judgment anymore, because when she was younger, June would leave her with various people for long periods of time. One of them was child molester Mark McDaniel

Anna says the only men who she'll trust with the new baby will be her husband and Uncle Poodle.

But Anna knows the value of a buck ... she says that there's one thing Mama June will come in handy for ... diaper coupons. 

The woman loves a good bargain.

0424-bruce-jenner-throwback-kylie-jenner-INSTAGRAM-01Bruce Jenner's daughter picked an ... interesting time to post a throwback pic of him in a crop top and cutoff shorts -- proving Kylie Jenner already understands the family biz ... promote, promote, promote.

Kylie just posted the shot of Bruce, circa 1980, showing off his Olympic Gold medal winning abs and legs. She captioned it ... "daddy throwback. #Tonight #DianeSawyer #ABC #love" -- so she's clearly reminding her 21.5 million followers to tune in for the special.

Mum's the Word On Bruce's Special

In the Midst of Insanity

4/24/2015 6:56 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Kardashian klan is saying nothing about Bruce Jenner's special which airs tonight, and they chose to say nothing at a place known for the highest concentration of paparazzi in L.A. 

Kris, Khloe, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and Scott all showed up at Craig's in West Hollywood, arguably the most popular restaurant in the city.

All the photogs asked about the special but lips were glossed and sealed.

Kim and Kanye didn't join.  

One thing's for sure ... this family knows how to do what they do.

Off to Prison After Wedding

breaking news

0422-mendeeces-lhh-instagram'Love & Hip Hop' couple Mendeecees Harris and Yandy Smith might be honeymooning in a federal prison ... because the groom just plead guilty to running a drug ring in upstate NY. 

Harris struck a plea deal in the case, and will now face 5 to 40 years in the federal pen, and/or a fine of $5 million. The feds nailed him for a drug trafficking operation that shipped cocaine and heroin to Rochester for 7 years. 

Harris will remain free on bail until his sentencing in August -- good thing for him ... since he and Yandy are getting married next month on "Love & Hip Hop Live: The Wedding." By the way, he also has to surrender all his paychecks from 'LHH.' 

The only good news for Yandy -- when her hubby gets locked up ... she'll get back most of the $200k she put up for his bail when he originally got busted last year.

Kanye & Kim

Not Funny, Amy Schumer ...

Get Off Our Red Carpet!

4/22/2015 7:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-kimye-amy-gettyIf looks killed, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian would have been booked for slaying Amy Schumer right on the red carpet of Time's fancy 100 most influential gala. 

Amy went for a quick laugh Tuesday night as Kimye cruised into the event -- faking a fall right in front of them as they posed for pics. Now, every comic knows a good pratfall gets a laugh every time ... UNLESS you're playing to an audience of 2 who ain't having it one bit.

Yeezy and KK's faces said it all ... 100% pure unimpressed shade. 

As for where Amy got the ridiculous idea it's fun to upstage people? Who knows ... maybe Taylor Swift and Beck have a clue.

Kris Jenner

Bruce Never Talked Transition During Marriage

4/22/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0421-kris-jenner-bruce-jenner-01

Kris Jenner was in the dark about Bruce's desire to become a woman during their entire marriage ... this according to sources directly and closely connected to Kris.

Our sources say Kris says Bruce did speak with her 25 years ago about his feelings, but she says he talked about his "tendency" to dress like a woman ... not to become one.  

We're told Kris insists the subject never came up again during their entire marriage. She also says she never saw Bruce dressed as a woman during their entire relationship.

Our sources connected with Bruce tell a different story ... that she knew full well he was very conflicted about his gender. 

Kris tells our sources the subject of sexual transition did not come up until after they were divorced. In fact our sources say Bruce told the girls about it before Kris.

One other thing ... we're told reports that Kris might take legal action against Bruce if he speaks negatively about her are untrue.

Karlie Redd Liquor

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" chicks are best known for getting ratchet on cam -- and now cast member Karlie Redd can fuel those fights with her own line of rum.

We've learned Redd signed a deal with Local Choice, the booze bottlers behind Tiny's Tequila (as in T.I.'s wife). Spokesperson KD McNair says they first approached Redd with the plan to create a custom liquor -- but going the rum route was all her idea. 

Our 'Love & Hip Hop' sources say Redd's getting a 25% ownership stake in her brand, and will be very hands-on. We're told she'll weigh in on everything from bottle designs to testing new flavors -- a dirty job that can get sloppy... if done right. 

No word on a product name yet. One suggestion: Redd Rum -- it's murdder.

Ok, the tagline needs some work.

Erin Andrews

Did She Just Take a Shot

... at Jarret Stoll?!

4/21/2015 6:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Erin Andrews may have sent a passive aggressive message to her NHL star boyfriend Monday night -- seemingly chiding him for his Vegas drug arrest ... and it all went down on "Dancing with the Stars."

Erin was interviewing Willow Shields after her wild performance -- and asked her if she ever busted out similar moves on Spring Break. 

When Willow gave her super boring answer -- "I just sit at home and watch movies all week" -- Andrews gave a very interesting response:

"I feel like some other people should learn from you."

Paying attention Jarret Stoll?  

Kim Richards

Off the Wagon or Stone Cold Sober

Someone's a Liar

4/20/2015 12:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

 Kim Richards DrinkingKim Richards was either a hopeless, pill-popping alcoholic the entire last season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" or she was sober and doing better than ever ... depending on who you talk to on the cast and production crew.

Several sources involved in the production of the show tell TMZ ... Kim's protestations last season that she was sober were laughable.

We're told veteran cast members Kyle Richards, Lisa Vanderpump and Yolanda Foster learned to just look the other way to avoid confrontation, it was only new cast members Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson who dared to confront Kim.

The sources say Kim would never drink where anyone could see her ... she'd appear sober but then disappear in the restroom and emerge ... well, not sober.

But other sources connected to the show say Kim did better controlling her addiction last season than she has in years.  

The most interesting cast member when it comes to Kim is Brandi Glanville. Sources in both camps say Brandi sides with them. If true, Brandi is playing both sides, which would be shocking, right?

Kim's sobriety became an issue during the dog biting incident. We're told Kim's camp sent a dog trainer to Kim's house to assess the situation, but the trainer found that Kim was such a mess, he had to help put her to bed.

Kim was arrested Thursday for public drunkeness and battery on a cop in Beverly Hills.

The bash was thrown at 1OAK.  There was a pretty big crowd, sans all the other Kardashians.  Kim's at home in L.A., Kylie's at Coachella with Tyga and Kendall.

0419-kendal-kylie-kardashian-INSTAGRAM-01Khloe was busy Saturday night throwing a shindig for her new group messaging app called Regroupd.

0419-khloe-kardashian-INSTAGRAM-01There was a buzz that Rob Kardashian might have gone to Coachella as well, but there's no evidence of it.

Kim Richards

Arrest Puts Her On

'RHOBH' Chopping Block

EXCLUSIVE

Kim Richards Real Housewives Of Beverly HillsIf you don't see Kim Richards on the next season of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" it'll be because of her drunken arrest earlier this week ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us producers feel Kim's substance abuse issues make her a liability. There are insurance issues with the show, and serious concerns that if something happens to Kim, Bravo could be on the hook for keeping her on such a contentious, demanding show. 

We're told a decision has not been made, but the alarm has been sounded and there's serious discussion about giving Kim the ax.

Here's where there's a split. Some production sources says Kim's substance abuse problem has been in full bloom all season. Several members of the cast and crew say they've watched Kim present a public picture of sobriety, but when the cameras are off she goes off the rails.

But other production sources tell us Kim actually did better this season in the sobriety department than she's done in years. They also think it's hypocritical for producers to turn their back on Kim now ... they say if she was such a problem she shouldn't have been exploited all year.

The show still has a few months before production starts back up again, so producers have some time to make their final decision.
