4/7/2016 10:41 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Exclusive Details

Ex 'Bad Girl' Amber Meade just wanted to shake her ass and flash her assault rifle, live on the Internet -- but ended up having cops bust into her bathroom to investigate the incident.

The former "Bad Girls Club" star was on Periscope last weekend, doing what she does -- dancing around in booty shorts, but this time she did it with an AR-15. The video is hysterical ... Amber flaunts her assets for several minutes, until there's a knock on her door.

That's when her fiance yelled the cops were there, and Amber scrambles to hide the massive weapon ... but it was too late. Maui PD explained to Amber they'd received a call about a "girl with a machine gun online."

As for how the officers tracked her down? Amber tells TMZ, her phone's location services were on. Ooops. However, she wasn't arrested since she and her fiance are legal owners.

In true 'Bad Girls' fashion, Amber says she's glad people know she has a gun so they won't mess with her.

4/7/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

040616-bad-girls-club-ace-of-diamonds"Bad Girls Club" learned the hard way about filming in a strip club -- strippers don't work pro bono. 

We're told the Oxygen show set its sights on filming inside L.A.'s Ace of Diamonds. Thing is, the production company needed everyone to sign a release form, but every single stripper demanded cash.  

A standoff ensued because "Bad Girls Club" wouldn't deal. The show ultimately did film inside the club ... sans strippers. 

Here's one of the 'Bad Girls' cast members filming inside AOD's bathroom with a waitress in tow.

0805_Kim-Zolciak_nene_leakes_bravo_tmzKim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes are determined to take a road trip even if it kills them ... which is why they aren't giving up on their new reality TV project, and it looks like it's back on track. 

We're told Kim and NeNe are back in talks with Bravo, trying to work out a concept and scheduling for their "Road to Riches" project. The title is not set in stone, but the idea is the 2 of them on an Oprah/Gayle King-type journey.

One of the sticking points ... Kim doesn't want to be away from her 4 youngest kids for long stretches of time. 

The project's been on the back burner for months but now both are close to wrapping their other projects, so they're ready to roll.

The big question ... who drives?

4/5/2016 4:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stevie J is tearing into his baby mama Mimi Faust for coming out as a lesbian, because he's not cool with their 6-year-old daughter being raised by 2 women.

Stevie tells TMZ he doesn't condone Mimi's new relationship with GF, Chris. Mimi came out on Monday night's episode of "Love & Hip-Hop: Atlanta." He says he doesn't want his little girl being raised in a lesbian household, and thinks that's only a job for a dad and a mom. 

Even more shade -- Stevie thinks Mimi's only deciding to be lesbian for a good story line on 'LHHA.' 

He's not threatening legal action yet, and believes he'll convince Mimi to see things his way.

4/5/2016 12:54 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0805_William-Hung_Brian-Dunkleman_gettyTwo people responsible for putting "American Idol" on the map are definitely returning for the final shows, and we don't mean Kelly Clarkson and Simon Cowell.

Yes, they'll be there too ... but more importantly, original 'Idol' co-host Brian Dunkleman will open the show and crowd favorite William Hung will sing on Thursday's series finale ... TMZ has learned.

That's not all ... we're told the show's trying to bring back every 'AI' winner and most of the top 3 from all 15 seasons for a big performance. No small feat, considering some of the superstars that would involve.

Clarkson's appearance will be pre-taped since she's about to pop with baby number 2.

On the host side ... we're told Simon's a shoo-in -- along with Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson -- even though he's claimed it wouldn't fit in his schedule.

We're told the plan is he'll surprise Ryan Seacrest. Oops.

4/5/2016 7:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-andi-dorfman-startraks-01Former "Bachelorette" star Andi Dorfman has a law degree and presumably a sizable student loan nut to crack ... which made her new career turn a tad puzzling.

Andi has moved on from posing questions to posing ... on a NYC rooftop for a bikini line.

Andi left her job as a prosecutor for a turn on the 'Bachelor' and later the 'Bachlorette,' but had begged her bosses for her job back after the shows wrapped.

Any objections?

MTV Star Arrested For Drinking In Public

4/4/2016 5:21 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


"Real World: Skeletons" star Tony Raines narrowly avoided a DUI, but still got busted for boozing in public after a crazy night in Charleston, South Carolina.

Witnesses told cops Raines was driving his truck in a motel parking lot Wednesday night when he almost struck a pedestrian -- and then backed the truck into a parked moped. Someone called the cops and an officer spoke with Tony, but he was not arrested since the moped owner wasn't there at the time to file a complaint. 

Tony wasn't done -- an hour later he was in a Burger King parking lot and almost hit another vehicle. This time police responded and found him sitting in his truck with an open can of Budweiser. 

He was booked for drinking in public, and had his car towed. Since the car was parked, he dodged a DUI.

According to his manager ... Tony thought it was okay to have an open container, like he does back home in Baton Rouge, and he's learned a hard lesson.

Alexa Curtin from 'RHOC' I Was Raped By an O.C. Cop

4/1/2016 2:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

040116-alexa-cutin-twitterupdate_graphic_red_bar6:25 PM PT -- The O.C. Sheriff's Department tells us the officer Alexa names in her lawsuit, Deputy Epson ... is not one of their employees. Nor has he ever been. However, a Sheriff rep tells us they take the allegations seriously and they are investigating.update_grey_gray_barThe daughter of 'Real Housewives' star Lynne Curtin says an O.C. Sheriff's deputy raped her after a bizarre traffic stop and search of her vehicle ... and now she wants the county to pay. 

Alexa Curtin says she was leaving her boyfriend's Dana Point home in April 2014 when she got pulled over by a man she believes to be an O.C. deputy. In a lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Curtin says the deputy searched her car and found underwear. She says he grilled her, saying things like ... how many pairs of underwear she had and why she needed them. 

Alexa, who used to make frequent appearances on 'Real Housewives of Orange County,' never says why he pulled her over in the first place.

After the search, she says the deputy abruptly announced he had to tend to another call, but told her to stay put on the side of the road -- only to return 20 minutes later in his personal vehicle, and in plain clothes. 

Curtin says he jumped in the passenger seat of her car and said, "Since you are still here, I am going to f**k the s**t out of you." She says he groped her, digitally penetrated her and then told her to straddle him. She describes the encounter as "nonconsensual sexual intercourse." 

She says he ejaculated inside her and on her seat.

In the suit, Curtin says she was afraid to report the alleged rape to authorities out of fear the deputy would harm her again. She's suing Orange County for violating her civil rights and for an illegal search and seizure.

The O.C. Sheriff's Department had no comment.

We caught Heather at LAX and showed her Kelly's racist rant Tuesday night outside The Nice Guy. For those who missed it, Kelly -- who seemed like she'd knocked back one too many -- told a camera guy point blank she didn't like black guys.
