'Survivor: Game Changers' Star Sorry, I Outed You As Transgender

4/13/2017 6:38 AM PDT

"Survivor: Game Changers" star Jeff Varner apologized again for outing his transgender co-star during Wednesday's tribal meeting, comparing the move to assault.

Jeff wrote a lengthy apology to Zeke Smith, who was born a woman, saying he "recklessly revealed something I mistakenly believed everyone already knew."

Jeff went on to say ... outing someone is assault since it robs a person of their power and protection.

Jeff outed Zeke to save himself at the tribal council. Most of the others jumped to Zeke's defense.

Christina El Moussa I Ain't Part of Your Skin Care Campaign ... Scrub Me Out, Or Else!

4/13/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Christina El Moussa's pissed her good looks are being used to hawk an anti-aging product -- she's only 33, but she says the real issue is she never endorsed it ... so now she's threatening to sue.

Christina's name popped up in an online campaign claiming she's the face of a skin care product line that's made her rich beyond her wildest dreams. It's one of those Internet ads you see dozens of times a day, but Christina says it's straight-up #fakenews -- all the quotes attributed to her are completely made up.

She's fired off cease and desist letters to a ton of companies and individuals warning them to take down the stories, or she'll sue. The problem is it's hard to track down exactly who's behind the campaign. Different versions keep popping up, but all have the same message: Christina's behind these skin products, buy here.

Policing the Internet's no easy task, which is why she's had to send the letter to 23 different companies or individuals. So far.

'American Chopper' Star Sued We Agreed to Do a Show ... Then You Chopped the Deal!

4/10/2017 12:53 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:20 PM PT -- Paul doesn't share his ex biz partner's memory of the deal. He tells us, "Unfortunately, Mr. Derbyshire's interpretation of said events is without merit."Paul Teutul Sr. -- co-founder of Orange County Choppers and star of "American Chopper" -- cost his business partner millions and ruined a future TV project ... according to a new suit.

Thomas Derbyshire claims he and Teutul formed a company specifically to produce a show for A&E called "Orange County Choppers: American Made." Derbyshire says he agreed to fund the project entirely -- up to $3 mil -- but he would own 51% and Teutul would own 49%.

According to the docs ... Teutul agreed to the terms, but a few months after Derbyshire wrote a $1.8 million check to start production, Teutul tried to change ownership to a 50/50 split. Derbyshire says he refused to sign off on the new terms, and production fell apart.

Derbyshire says Teutul was screwing him even before that, though, by striking a side deal with a dog food company, paying his son, Michael, out of the budget without consent and demanding "endless reshoots of himself."

Derbyshire now wants to dissolve the company, and have Teutul cut him a big check for all the money he lost producing a show that never aired.

We reached out to Teutul ... so far, no word back.

If anyone had doubts 'Bachelor' star Nick Viall and fiancee Vanessa Grimaldi were the real deal this footage from Sunday's "Dancing with the Stars" rehearsal should put those to bed.

4/10/2017 6:55 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Don't mess with Miss Nikki Baby's crew ... they're down to brawl with or without show cameras rolling.

The "Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood" star narrowly avoided an all-female rumble Sunday night outside of Catch. She was leaving with friends, when all of a sudden another group of women -- supposedly her friends or acquaintances -- rushed them and started trading blows until bodies hit the floor.

Interestingly, Nikki made sure no one messed up her hair or makeup. You can see she's right next to the action when the fight starts ... but she QUICKLY retreated to the sidelines.

Again, there doesn't appear to be any show cameras recording during the brawl. So, there's a much better chance this reality brawl is actually real.

June says she's lost about 300 lbs and undergone several painful plastic surgeries ... and in this video it looks like just walking is causing her pain. Unclear if her foot issues are related to the surgeries -- she was only rocking inch-high sandals. 

But yeah, she's gonna need new jeans if this keeps up ... or is it down?

'RuPaul's Drag Race' Star Sues Management For Allegedly Stealing Millions

4/4/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

PEG tells us Adore's allegations are "categorically inaccurate in every regard, including [Adore's] income, expenses and PEG's commissions." The managers insist they "would never take actions that are adverse to the careers of our artists" ... and they're confident the suit will be tossed.Drag queen Adore Delano from "RuPaul's Drag Race" says he should be a multi-millionaire, but his management stole almost everything out from under his powdered nose.

In a lawsuit, Adore says he earned $2.5 million over the past 3 years -- mostly off 2 hit singles and hundreds of concerts -- but only walked away with $300k. He believes his managers at Producer Entertainment Group conspired with his record label, and others, to embezzle his hard earned dough.

Adore says he's found multiple examples of PEG nickel-and-diming him, often taking as much as 70% of his appearance fees and other revenue streams. According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, the management team threatened to "destroy his career" if Adore continued questioning his finances. 

He's suing for $1 million in lost wages, and another $2.5 mil in punitive damages.
