Kandi Burruss' backstage demands are HILARIOUS ... whatever you do, don't screw with her Popeyes fried chicken!
TMZ has obtained a copy of Burruss' contract rider ... listing her demands for the touring production of her musical show, "A Mother's Love" ... and she's VERY picky.
When it comes to food ... the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star demands Popeyes fried chicken. The contract states: "Please do not substitute for KFC or Churches, we know the difference."
But ... even though she won't eat KFC birds ... she insists on KFC cole slaw.
Burruss is just as finicky about her bathroom requirements ... a brand new toilet seat for starters -- which must be installed under the supervision of the road manager or an assistant. Plus, the bathroom must be fully stocked with Cottonelle toilet paper and Dove soap.
-a black Mercedes Benz Sprinter
-golf carts and umbrellas in case of rain
-a police escort to skirt traffic jams -- because "under no circumstance shall Kandi be delayed arriving at or departing" from the venue.
Kandi's rep confirms the authenticity of the contract.

With the finale of "The Bachelorette" having aired Monday night, Andi Dorfman and her new fiancé Josh Murray can finally go out in public together ... and they did so the first chance they got.
Dorfman picked Murray over fellow suitor Nick Viall and the new couple immediately jumped on the red eye at LAX to do the morning shows in New York City.
Andi and Josh clearly couldn't wait to be together -- the video was shot around 9:15 PM PT ... and Dorfman making her pick didn't air on the west coast until around 9:45 PM.

Pia Mia knows it pays to keep up with the Kardashians ... the 17-year-old singer/friend of Kendall and Kylie Jenner just signed a recording contract that will make her rich -- not Kardashian rich ... but close enough.
Pia signed a multi-album deal with Interscope which pays 1.3 mil for her first album ... and up to $9 million more if Interscope green lights her next three albums.
And according to the contract -- obtained by TMZ -- she stands to make even more in bonuses ... if the albums are hits.
Pia -- who was born in Guam -- got her start on YouTube and hit it big when Kim K. posted video of her singing a Drake song at Kylie's 16th birthday party -- with Drake and Kanye front and center.

7/28/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is back at work -- shooting episodes for the new season -- and rumors that she's taking a leave of absence are NOT true, sources tell TMZ.
What's more ... we've learned her husband, convicted felon Apollo Nida, is back, too -- at least for a while.
We're told Phaedra and Apollo have been filming for almost a month -- trying to shoot as much as possible before he begins serving his 8-year prison sentence for money fraud.
Sources tell us ... their storyline centers on Apollo's conviction and the upheaval it's caused in their relationship ... a relationship that appears to be on the brink of divorce.
We're told Phaedra may skip some filming to take care of family business ... but there's no way she's leaving the show.

The plea deal was unveiled this morning in court in Middletown, NJ. Sitch was with Frank ... the brother he punched in their tanning salon ... and told us he's not looking forward to anger management, but admits he could probably use it.
Sitch's attorney Edward Fradkin says the anger counseling will be done on a one-on-one basis.

Popped for DWI & Drugs
7/28/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Florina "Flo" Kaja is still a 'Bad Girl' to cops in NY, where she got busted for DWI and drug possession -- but not before she tried to dupe 'em with the oldest move in the book ... TMZ has learned
Kaja -- from Season 4 of "The Bad Girls Club" -- was stopped by cops in Yonkers, NY on Monday night for making an illegal U-turn. According to police, she appeared to be under the influence ... acting erratic and fidgety.
Cops say they found a bag of weed and another substance they believe to be cocaine. Officers say Flo also gave them a fake name, which -- as every delinquent teen knows -- NEVER works.
Flo's been charged with possession of a controlled substance and DWI -- and cops say she also had an outstanding warrant for harassment.
Yeah, she bad.

Sex Tape Partner Gets Screwed
7/27/2014 12:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Danielle Staub will probably get the cold shoulder the next time she shops at Nordstrom ... because she just screwed them over in bankruptcy court ... and she royally screwed the guy in her sex tape in the unforgettable onion bagel scene.
Staub got a sweet deal in bankruptcy court, excusing more than $200,000 in debt. Among those who are saying bye bye to their money ... Sex tape partner Stephen Zalewski won't get $100K from his defamation lawsuit against her.
In addition to Nordstrom, which is out more than $7K ... Ford is saying bye bye to $3K, American Express is out more than $7K. and her lawyers are out more than $30K ... but no one feels sorry for them.
Finally for Danielle ... a clean discharge.
Female Stylists Brawl ...
'Do I Look Like a Man Now?'
7/27/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two hairdressers threw down in an explosive chick fight on the reality show "L.A. Hair" -- all because one has repeatedly confused the other for a man.
Naja Rickette and Lisa Buford came to blows on the episode that aired Thursday night ... after Buford got fed up with Rickette telling others she looks like a dude.
Buford got in Rickette's face and yelled, "Can you see my Adam's Apple now?" -- aaaaaaaaaand, fight!
Plenty of punching, shoving and, of course, hair-pulling (long-haired chicks never win these things).
Based on this video -- both chicks have balls.
'Big Brother' Contestant's G-Ma
There's No Curse
I'm Not in Fear For My Life
7/26/2014 11:54 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
People die in threes ... so the urban legend goes ... but the grandma of "Big Brother" contestant Amber Borzotra is fearless -- despite the fact grandparents of two other contestants died this week.
Producers broke the news to Frankie Grande -- Ariana's bro -- about their beloved grandpa. And Friday night house guest Derrick Levasseur got similar bad news.
Nonetheless ... 64-year old Iris Beverly isn't nervous -- and same goes for her 67-year old husband. She tells us, "We don't believe in curses, when God calls my name I will go."
Beverly adds, "Them dying is a tough coincidence, but he stays healthy walking and I'm a professional piddler."
We made calls to the grandparents of some of the other contestants, but there was no answer.
Please Love Me, Nerds …
Working Blue at Comic-Con
7/26/2014 7:21 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Patridge tried to blend in at Comic-Con by dressing up as Mystique from X-Men Friday in San Deigo.
Truth is, if there weren't cameras all over the convention center, Audrina probably wouldn't be rubbing elbows with Wookies and Klingons -- but she gets some props for the authentic comic book Mystique costume.
She'd get way more if she'd gone as one of the movie versions.
Quarantine Broken Again …
Derrick's Grandpa Dies
7/25/2014 9:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
For the second time in days, a "Big Brother" houseguest got shocking news from the outside world about a family member's death -- this time it was Derrick Levasseur's grandfather.
On tonight's live feed, houseguest Derrick was handed a note from producers -- like Frankie Grande on Wednesday evening -- and learned of the death in his family.
It's eerie … Derrick purposely lost the Head of Household competition on Thursday so Frankie would get a chance to see photos of his grandfather who died on Tuesday.
Derrick shared his news with Frankie in the house tonight … and said his family isn't as close. He said he wasn't planning to leave the house for the funeral on Sunday.
As we told you … it is extremely rare for producers to break the 'BB' house quarantine even once in a season.
How to Make Peace in the Middle East
7/26/2014 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The United Nations, John Kerry and every foreign policy expert can't figure out how to bring peace to the Middle East ... but thank God Farrah Abraham has the answer.
The hosts of Matty P's Radio Happy Hour asked the MTV/porn star how a peace agreement could be forged.
Her answer -- a minute-and-a-half of blithering idiocy -- is epic ... she makes Selena look like Golda Meir.
Truth be told ... Farrah's better at piece agreements.
In the Hamptons Again
7/25/2014 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Scott Disick returned to the scene of the crime last night with a wine glass in hand as he partied with French Montana and Fat Joe at J.Lo's 45th birthday bash.
Interesting that Lord D posted the pic himself. We can't tell what's in the glass, but it seems Scott has gotten over the night of severe boozing in the Hamptons about a month ago that sent him to a hospital with alcohol poisoning.
As we told you ... that incident got Scott on the wagon -- sources told us he hadn't had a drink since.
To be fair ... Fat Joe's pants would drive anyone to drink.
