7/14/2016 8:44 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

071416-stevie-j-joseline-hernandez-tmz"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Stevie J says Joseline Hernandez is out to ruin his character, and calls her allegations he molested his 6-year-old daughter ... a sick attempt at revenge.

Joseline posted a message to Twitter earlier this month, claiming Stevie had molested the daughter he shares with Mimi Faust for years.

Stevie remained quiet about the claim until Wednesday when he filed for, and was granted, a temporary restraining order against Hernandez. In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Stevie calls Joseline volatile, jealous and says she's filled with an evil sense of revenge after their nasty split. 

The order says Joseline must stay at least 200 yards away from Stevie, but she can still pick up her Rolex and diamond ring from his house ... as long as the cops come too. 

Gay 'Bachelor' A Rose with a Hose

EXCLUSIVE

0711_robert-sepulveda_launch_instagramMove over, Chris Soules ... there's a new bachelor in town. The good news ... he's not after your girl.

We've learned the Logo network is shooting a gay 'bachelor' show, and the prize is Robert Sepulveda Jr. He's an interior designer with Puerto Rican roots who now lives in ATL. In case you didn't notice, Robbie's in good shape.

Our production sources say 13 male contestants have been cast and the show is filming at an L.A. mansion.   

The show is called "Finding Prince Charming" and it's hosted by Lance Bass.

There might be a rub. We're told the show is not a spinoff of "The Bachelor," and it's unclear whether producers of the OG show might have a problem with the knockoff.

No word on when the show will premiere on Logo.

The co-founder of a product featured on "Shark Tank" is in serious trouble after he was busted for allegedly pulling a gun on someone outside his home.

Burbank police tell TMZ ... Mike Barzman -- who pitched "Invisiplug" in season 5 -- went off the rails earlier this month on a man smoking in front of his house. We're told Mike got into a heated argument over the ciggy, and pulled out a gun threatening to kill the man.

We're told cops arrived at his home the next day and recovered a semi-automatic handgun. Barzman was arrested for felony assault with a firearm. He posted $50k bail the next day.

Barzman's attorney, Gregory Brenner, says his client did have an unloaded gun on him ... but never pointed it at the smoker and never threatened him. In fact, he says Barzman is the one who felt threatened.

Kim & Kyle Richards Sued Kingsley the Pit Bull Strikes Again

7/7/2016 5:26 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0707-kim-kyle-richards-tmz-01Kim and Kyle Richards are being sued by a stylist who claims Kim's pit bull viciously attacked her and Kim refused to call 911 unless the woman lied to protect the dog.

Paige Sanderson says in a new lawsuit -- obtained by TMZ -- she went to Kyle's house in April to help Kim dress for a promotional appearance for 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.'

Sanderson says when she saw Kim's pit bull, Kingsley, she became fearful and ran into a bathroom. She says she was assured the dog was docile, so she came out and says Kingsley went ham.

Sanderson says the dog lunged at her, bit and held on to her lower abdomen and crotch, tearing off her leggings and underwear and ripping out portions of flesh.

From there she says it only got worse. According to the lawsuit, Kim refused to call 911 unless Sanderson lied to EMT's by blaming the attack on a stray dog ... not Kingsley.

Kingsley has a history of attacking. The dog bit Kyle's daughter, Alexia, in November 2014, sending her to the hospital. The dog also attacked a dog trainer and an 80-year-old woman.

As for Sanderson, she's suing Kyle because the attack occurred at her house. She wants a ton of money for emotional distress, cosmetic surgery and medical bills.

EXCLUSIVE

070616-lisa-vanderpump-tmz-02Lisa Vanderpump is coming back to 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,' TMZ has learned, but there are serious strings attached.

Production sources tell us Lisa made some demands, but none had to do with money. She wants 'RHOBH' to showcase her work in the LGBT community. She also wants the show to put a spotlight on the work she does to fight AIDS. And finally she wants publicity for her fight to put a stop to the dog meat market in China.  

We're told producers agreed to give her what she wants, so she's coming back. Lisa didn't raise issues over what she considers bullying by her castmates last season. She realizes it just goes with the territory of reality TV.

Mally Mall Slays Birthday With $900 Joint

EXCLUSIVE

0705_B-Real_joint-uzi-TMZ"Love & Hip-Hop: Hollywood" star Mally Mall got a stoner's dream gift for his 38th birthday ... a 4-foot blunt disguised as a weed sword, and he smoked it all at his Ace of Diamonds birthday bash while shooting out $50k from a laser gun.

The mega-joint was a gift from B-Real of Cypress Hill. The two are actually partners in the weed biz and their hallmark is packaging joints in creative silhouettes.

0705_MALLY-MALL-JOINT-TMZWe're told B-Real rolled about 3 oz of weed into Mally's present ... totally legal in California where anyone with a medical license can possess up to 8 oz. As for the price ... $900 since it was packed with M&M Cookies -- not the candy, but the award-winning weed strain. 

As it turns out ... it still wasn't enough to go around, so they sparked another blunt, this one shaped like an uzi.

Who says grown men don't like birthday presents?

Lisa Vanderpump Too Busy for 'Real Housewives'

EXCLUSIVE

070516-lisa-vanderpump-tmzLisa Vanderpump may bail on 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell us ... Lisa's the only 'Housewife' who hasn't signed on for a 7th season. She's complained to producers she didn't dig the "negative vibes" last season from castmates who ganged up on her.

She met with producers early last week at Pump, and added a concern -- time. She spends most of it focused on "Vanderpump Rules" as well as operating her 3 restaurants.

And there's more ... Lisa's on a mission to end the dog meat market in China, which also eats into her time.

It seems like this is not a money play ... Lisa may be gone.

'Love & Hip Hop' Star Alleged Saks Spree Might Cost Her 3 YEARS!

EXCLUSIVE

0701-karen-king-mug-01

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" star Karen King is staring down some serious prison time for allegedly going on a shopping spree ... with someone else's identity. 

King was arrested in May after cops say she strolled into Saks Fifth Ave in ATL and racked up a $5k bill on dresses, perfumes, shoes and other accessories. The D.A. just hit her with 3 felony charges -- one for financial identity fraud, and two for credit card fraud.

Each carries a sentence of at least a year behind bars if she's convicted.

TMZ obtained video of the arrest when it went down, and at least Karen can say ... she was dressed to the nines for her arrest! Unclear if the outfit came from Saks though.

Kim Zolciak's Daughter Caught a Pitcher!!

7/3/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

063016-primary-brielle-bierman-instagramKim Zolciak's daughter is following in Mom's footsteps, and we don't mean she got a wig ... instead she's snagged a pro baller.

Sources close to the "Don't Be Tardy" star tell TMZ ... Brielle Biermann is dating Michael Kopech, a 20-year-old pitcher in the Boston Red Sox minor league system. 

We're told she and Michael started chatting in March, but things started getting serious recently, meaning they're monogamous now ... a big step for 19-year-old Brielle. It's a long distance thing at this point -- she travels to Salem, VA to see his games, and he comes to Atlanta when he can.

Michael's a tall drink at 6'3'' and 205 pounds, and we're told the family loves the fact he's a gentleman. Which is good for him, since NFL-playing papa Kroy Biermann is also 6'3" ... but 260 lbs.

Dad strength is real, y'all.

Kim Zolciak I'm Not Selling My 'Lazy' Daughter's Car

EXCLUSIVE

0629_Brielle-Biermann_jeep_instagramKim Zolciak did not put her daughter on blast by calling her a deadbeat and selling her car to teach her a lesson.

Someone posted on a car sale website that Brielle's 2013 Jeep was up for sale for a reasonable $50k. The seller's description had these choice words, "This car belongs to my lazy daughter Brielle Bierman."

It looks legit enough ... there are even pics of the Jeep in the driveway of the former 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star. One of the photos was taken from the other side of Kim's gate.

We spoke with Kim, who says the Jeep's not for sale and she's looking into the person behind the post.
