'RHONY' Star Down and Dirty in Divorce Court

11/16/2016 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1116-michael-jules-waintsein-tmz-03Only thing missing between 'Real Housewives of New York' star Jules Wainstein and estranged hubby Michael was some actual slimy mud during a vicious back-and-forth slinging in court. 

The estranged couple appeared in court Wednesday in NYC for a spousal and child support hearing that quickly went south ... with their lawyers going at each other's throats with allegations of money troubles, drug use and being unfit parents.

Michael painted Jules as someone living way beyond her means ... whose spending quadrupled when she joined 'RHONY.' Michael pointed to a $40k AmEx bill in 2015 and $2k spent on Uber the first 15 days of October.  

He also brought up Jules' history of drug use documented on TV ... to which the judge snapped back by saying, "I don't decide my cases based on what's on TV."

Jules admitted to making $60k during her 1 year stint on 'RHONY' while she was married. She blamed Michael for a pile of unpaid bills and not having filed proper tax returns in nearly a decade.

She said Michael doesn't deserve more time with their kids. She claims every other weekend is more than enough, since all he does is pawn the kids off on their nanny.

The judge made no decisions, saying they need to resolve their money issues first. Same goes for custody ... though the judge added there could well be a trial.

As we reported ... Michael filed for divorce back in July and wanted full custody of their 2 kids.

1115-kaitlyn-cardwell-before-after-surgery-tmz-03Mama June's granddaughter, Kaitlyn Cardwell, is now bandage-free and showing off her solo thumb.

TMZ broke the story ... Kaitlyn's mom, Anna, made the decision last month to have an extra thumb surgically removed from the 4-year-old's right hand. The surgery went off without a hitch, and Kaitlyn's recovery went faster than expected ... so she got to ditch her cast early.

Kaitlyn's extra digit was a big talking point on the show, but we're told it won't be missed. Most importantly, she's feeling great after the surgery.

EXCLUSIVE

1111-apollo-nida-INSTAGRAM-01Apollo Nida will appear on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' from prison and he's bringing his new mystery fiancée along for the ride too ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us Apollo started dating the woman 2 years ago ... before he started his prison sentence, and they got engaged a couple months ago. We're told the woman lives in NJ, not far from the the federal prison where he's serving his sentence ... and she visits twice a week.

She and Apollo have both shot scenes for the upcoming 'RHOA' season -- he's on by phone -- and we're told producers want to keep her identity under wraps until the episode airs.

The 2 big questions: NO, the fiancée did not shoot scenes with Apollo's ex, but Phaedra Parks' reaction to the relationship was captured -- and NO ... the fiancée doesn't have a ring.

Diamonds are frowned upon in federal lockup.

'BiP' Star Amanda Stanton Child Support Takes a Hit

11/14/2016 12:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1109-amanda-josh-instagram-gettyAmanda Stanton's monthly checks from her ex just got slashed by almost 75% ... but at least her fiance's still by her side.

Amanda and her fiance, Josh Murray, were together in family court when Amanda lost a battle in her ongoing custody and child support war with her ex-husband, Nick Buonfiglio.

Nick wanted to pay less child support to the "Bachelor in Paradise" star for their 2 daughters, and the judge agreed -- cutting his payments from $2k a month down to $530.

The reasoning is simple -- Amanda admits she's making more cash after being on 'BiP' ... while Nick says he's had financial hardships.

'Bachelorette' Star Luke Pell Strips Down For the Dogs

11/11/2016 11:07 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelorette' alum Luke Pell didn't score a gig as the next 'Bachelor,' but he might want to see if Chippendales is hiring after making $1,500 for taking off his shirt.

Luke, a fan favorite from JoJo's season, swept the Cocktails for Canines bachelor auction earlier this week in Delray Beach, Florida. Basically, it's a bunch of hot dudes stripping for the highest bid ... with the dough going to a dog charity.

The competition was pretty stiff ... Luke's season 12 cohort, Nick Benvenutti, and "Big Brother" alum Zach Rance also showed skin. "Bachelor in Paradise" alum Vinny Ventiera hosted the event.

We're told the event raised $25k for the Tri-County Animal Rescue, which adds up when you hear the roar from the crowd.

'Hogan's Heroes' Star Bob Crane Murderer to Be Revealed on Live TV

11/11/2016 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1110_bob_crane_crime_scene_getty-fox-news-10_2The man who viciously murdered Bob Crane, the star of the iconic TV show "Hogan's Heroes," may be exposed on TV after a 38 year unsolved mystery.

Crane was bludgeoned to death with a camera tripod in his Scottsdale apartment back in 1978. He and his good friend, John Carpenter, were deep into kinky sex ... secretly filming various sexual configurations involving numerous women.

Carpenter's rent-a-car was seized by cops just days after Crane's murder, and they found blood inside. Carpenter was tried for murder, but there was a problem. DNA was not perfected then, and the jury found him not guilty because there wasn't conclusive proof it was Crane's blood.

1110_bob_crane_blood_SUB_fox10Enter Phoenix Fox 10 anchor John Hook. More than a year ago, Hook started working with the Maricopa County Attorney's Office and convinced prosecutors to release enough blood so state-of-the-art DNA tests could be conducted.

The DNA results are in. Hook is mum, but he will reveal the results Monday on the 9 PM news.

If the blood is a match with the blood found in Carpenter's car, it's close to a slam dunk he was the killer, but he can't be prosecuted for 2 reasons ... double jeopardy, and he's dead.

11/8/2016 12:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1107-amanda-josh-instagram-tmzAmanda Stanton claims she and Josh Murray have taken their "Bachelor in Paradise" relationship to the next level by living together with a soaring household income.

Amanda shared financial info as part of her custody battle with ex-husband/baby daddy Nick Buonfiglio. In the docs, she says she's making more than $13k a month from her fashion blog and social media. She also lists live-in fiance Josh's monthly income at $10k.

According to the docs, Amanda's paychecks increased big-time after her recent appearance on 'BiP' -- thanks to new endorsement ops. This seems to support Nick's claim she's making way more dough these days ... which is why he wants more child support for their 2 daughters.

One more tidbit/confession from the docs ... Amanda spends 2 grand a month on clothes.
