"Love & Hip Hop" star Mimi Faust is finally making love not war -- in a BRAND NEW SEX TAPE -- and her partner in slime is her co-star and BF from the reality show.
Vivid honcho Steve Hirsch tells TMZ ... he got hold of the sex tape starring Mimi and Nikko Smith, and then contacted them to sign off on it going public. He says "Love & Hip Hop" producers also gave their blessing ... presumably in an effort to spice up the reality show for next season.
We've seen clips of "Mimi & Nikko: Scandal in Atlanta" ... it's the real deal and it's intense. It's scheduled for release later this month.
As the saying goes, when all else fails ... make a sex tape.
Real Cougars of Bev Hills Gone Wild
4/14/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kyle Richards and her rich friends were ON THE LOOSE this week ... partying at a West Hollywood nightclub like girls 1/3 their age.
The "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star hit up iconic gay bar The Abbey on Thursday night to celebrate a friend's birthday ... and to do some risque table dancing.
According to our sources, Kyle and co. arrived around 11:00 PM and stayed til closing at 2 AM ... so, hardly what you'd call a rager.
We're told Richards is quite the barfly -- at the Abbey, anyway ... where she frequently sips on margs (Skinny Girl, we're sure) and is known for leaving fat tips.
Momma needs her medicine.
'Kitchen Nightmares' Stars
All the 'Unics' Should
LEAVE US ALONE!
4/12/2014 9:01 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The owners of "Amy's Baking Company" returned to "Kitchen Nightmares" Friday to defend their volatile viral episode from last year -- and just like before, it was a total trainwreck.
Amy and Samy Bouzaglo were on the show last night and miserably attempted to tell their side of the story -- specifically regarding their vile comments on Facebook (which they claim were hacked.)
For those who missed it ... Gordon Ramsay walked off "K.N." for the first time last year -- after the baking company owners refused to accept criticism for things like pocketing waitstaff tips and picking a fight with a customer.
Although Amy and Sam insist they were hacked last year ... history repeated itself.
Check out the clip, they're really loathsome.
Mema from 'Hollywood Hillbillies'
During Media Tour
4/12/2014 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Being a reality star might be too much work for Mema from "Hollywood Hillbillies" -- the 70-year-old had to be rushed to the hospital while she was in NYC to promote her Reelz TV show.
We're told Mema was leaving her hotel Thursday when she fell ill. Her grandson and manager David Weintraub found her walking out of the lobby to hail a cab that would take her to the ER.
Mema's temp was 104. She spent the night at the hospital and doctor's think the 12-hour-days media tour was just too much for her.
We're told Mema's fine and she's heading back to L.A. to start filming season two.
Lisa Vanderpump's Husband
Sued For Alleged Sidewalk Attack
4/11/2014 4:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Two construction workers claim Lisa Vanderpump's husband Ken Todd attacked them ... then accused them of blackmail ... all because of a construction beef last year at Todd's West Hollywood restaurant.
The workers -- brothers Kevin and David Cazaref -- claim they were demolishing a sidewalk with a concrete chipper ... when Todd approached them "in a rude and aggressive manner" to complain about their work.
According to the lawsuit, Todd got even angrier when Kevin asked Todd to show him the right way to do it -- and eventually shoved Kevin. David then flagged down a Sheriff's deputy to report the incident.
According to docs, the deputy talked to Todd, who apologized ... and offered Kevin "a sum of money as a gesture of good faith" -- but when the brothers rejected his offer (while standing at an ATM) ... Todd got mad and started yelling he was being blackmailed.
The Cazarefs are now suing for assault, battery and slander.
If all of this sounds a little familiar ... it's because Todd sued the brothers last October, claiming he was the one who was attacked. The brothers say that case was dismissed ... because Todd never showed up to court.

Huge Chick Fight Over Ray J [VIDEO]
4/10/2014 5:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Well, that didn't take long ... a huge fight broke out on the FIRST day "Love & Hip Hop L.A." started shooting -- and TMZ has video which shows Ray J was in the middle of the mess.
The brawl went down between Ray J's GF Princess Love and singer Teairra Mari inside a nightclub.
Check out the video ... Princess goes wild when she sees Teairra standing with Ray J.
Sources close to production tell us Princess demanded to know why Teairra was with her man ... and also claimed she saw photos of them together.
We're told Teairra simply said, "I don't care" ... and then it was on ... with Princess throwing the first punch.
Our sources say landing Ray J for the show was a huge score ... he had originally turned down offers to join the cast.
But hey, money talks -- and while we're told he's getting a ton of it ... Ray J's presence is already paying off for producers. Let's face it ... "Love & Hip Hop" loves a good fight.
I Didn't Jack That 'Worthless' Song
4/10/2014 12:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Porsha Williams claims a songwriter is so desperate for attention ... he's accusing her of stealing his music... but Porsha says she can prove the guy was totally into his tune being used on the show.
On Sunday night's episode of "Real Housewives of Atlanta," Porsha sang a song called, "Perfectly Worthless" ... and that's exactly how it sounded, according to the guy who wrote it.
Pierre Medor -- who's worked with Usher, Diddy and Nelly -- says he only gave the song to Porsha to test her voice ... and had no idea the song would end up on the air.
In fact, he claims he made a deal for someone else to record it.
But Porsha tells TMZ ... Medor signed a waiver with Bravo for his appearance on "RHOA" -- and even sent a text message saying he LIKED hearing his song on the show.
The text to Porsha's rep said, "It's cool. It was a good look! Now we need to get a record done."
Obviously Porsha's not as impressed ... her rep says Porsha's focused on promoting her new single, "Flatline" -- and calls Medor's attack a "desperate attempt to ride her coattails."
Khloe & French
The Great Banging Cover-up
... Yet Again
4/10/2014 3:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian and French Montana are going through a lot of effort to try and and show people they aren't banging ... which TOTALLY means they are.
KK and FM hit up Hooray Henry's in West Hollywood Wednesday night, but took ridiculous steps to exit separately. First it was Khloe, blowing off our photog's questions and heading into her SUV.
Then, as if he was waiting for the precise moment when Khloe got inside her car, French emerged from the club -- skirting our questions as he walked to his car ... where Scott Disick was dutifully waiting inside.
Funny side note ... watch as Scott yells at French when French tries to get in the driver's seat. You can barely see Scott behind French's MASSIVE bodyguards.
As TMZ first reported, the pair spent last weekend together -- Khloe helped French look for houses in LA, before the pair spent Saturday night at a strip club in Phoenix.
As the old saying goes -- where there's smoke ... there's banging.
I LOVED Fantasia's
'Motherf****n' Wedding Speech
4/9/2014 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kandi Burruss was NOT offended by Fantasia's foulmouthed wedding speech. Contrary to reports she was horrified at Fantasia's f-bomb barrage ... Kandi LOVED it.
The "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star tied the knot with fiance Todd Tucker on April 4 -- and was reportedly mortified when Fantasia took the mic at the reception, calling Kandi "the realest bitch" and "my motherf****n’ friend." She also went on about Kandi's big ass.
But Kandi's rep says she was NOT horrified in the least, telling us, Kandi laughed her big ass off at Fantasia's speech ... and the two had a blast at the wedding.
Bottom line ... Kandi and Fantasia know each other really well ... and Fantasia could never offend her.
Joe and Teresa Giudice
New Docs Reveal
Lavish Deadbeat Lifestyle
4/9/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Joe and Teresa Giudice will get a clean slate from the bankruptcy judge -- they paid $7,500 to creditors and in the process they'll erase more than $13 MILLION in debts!!!
The docs -- obtained by TMZ -- are shocking. Joe and Teresa lived their lives through smoke and mirrors, having almost no equity in any of their lavish trappings of wealth.
They have a $1.7 million house with only $140K in equity. There are 2 other properties where they have NO equity.
They have a Maserati, an Escalade, a Ford 350 and have NO equity in them. They also have toys -- a Sea-Doo boat, a Kawasaki quad, 2 go carts and other stuff -- no equity.
As for their creditors who will walk away with nothing ... they include 5 banks, all of which loaned the couple more than a million bucks. Wachovia Bank got shafted to the tune of $5.3 MIL.
As we previously reported ... the Giudices are about to get prison time for bank fraud.
BTW ... one really weird thing. The Giudices valued their dogs at $600. The bankruptcy trustee begged to differ, saying the dogs were worthless.

I Did Not Fake
My Dog's Death!
4/8/2014 12:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kenya Moore insists she DID NOT fake her dog's death for ratings and is disgusted at reports that claim otherwise.
On Sunday's episode of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta," Kenya revealed her pooch of seven years -- a Yorkie named Velvet -- had died after being viciously attacked by a neighbor's dog.
But the day after the episode aired, reports came out claiming the dog was alive and well and living with her friend Brandon DeShazer ... and that Moore had FAKED the death to drive up ratings.
DeShazer -- who posted a series of old photos of Velvet when the show aired that sparked the rumor -- calls the reports "vile" and "irresponsible," telling TMZ, "Anybody who has pets knows the kind of love you develop for them. To report that something like that would be staged … it’s disgusting."
We're told Moore is still heartbroken over Velvet's passing and calls the reports "evil."
'Real Housewives of Atlanta'
You Fire Porsha ...
And We Walk!
4/8/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The entire cast of "Real Housewives of Atlanta" -- minus one -- is threatening to walk off the show if Porsha Williams is fired over her fight with Kenya Moore.
The one holdout -- Kenya Moore.
Sources close to the show tell us the women hatched their plan this weekend at Kandi Burruss' wedding ... telling the show's producers how much they despise Moore because of all the drama she stirs up.
As we reported ... Williams attacked Moore during taping of the reunion special ... and producers may use the bitch fight as justification for giving Porsha the axe.
We're told since the brawl, ALL housewives' contracts for next season have been put on hold -- until show honchos figure out what to do with Porsha.
But sources tell us the women have made it clear ... they'll walk if Porsha gets fired ... and we're told NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks are making a play to get Kenya fired instead.
