The sister of "Big Brother" contestant Jocasta Odom is tearing cast member Frankie Grande to shreds ... for saying Jocasta "can kill herself."
Frankie's back stab stung hard ... because Jocasta -- a pastor -- just performed a memorial service for his recently deceased grandfather.
Miranda Chelsea, Jocasta's sis, tells TMZ, "It was an ignorant statement and the little respect I had for him just went out the window." And the parting shot, "It shows the lack of maturity he has."
Miranda isn't the only one pissed off -- so are the fans ... @JrAguja1997 tweeted "I don't f**king care if your sister sings good, you're a s**tty person Frankie. Calling Jocasta to kill herself. Argh."
Whatever sympathy Frankie had built up this past week has now quickly gone away ... and it only took 13 seconds of footage to do it.
David Tutera, Ryan Jurica
Twins From Split
Have Never Met
7/29/2014 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The twins born more than a year ago to David Tutera and ex-partner Ryan Jurica have never met.
As TMZ previously reported, Tutera and Jurica each fertilized an egg that was implanted in the same surrogate, who gave birth to the two babies at the same time. David and Ryan split before birth ... David kept the girl, Cielo, and Ryan kept the boy, Cedric.
David -- who hosts CELEBrations on WE tv -- told Harvey and Charles on "TMZ Live" ... the kids have had zero contact because of the nuclear breakup.
Ryan tells TMZ ... he's attempted to create a relationship between the twins, but David would have none of it. Ryan says he thinks the kids need to establish a bond sooner than later, and, "I will do all that I can to foster it."
David hedged on "TMZ LIve," saying he's open to the kids connecting one day.
I Needed a 'Social Lubricant'
7/29/2014 12:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Zac doesn't mention any drug or drink by name ... we broke the story he had 2 stints in rehab last year for cocaine and Molly.
The actor says it became impossible to go out in the world because, as he put it, the press followed him everywhere. So he needed what he called a "social lubricant" to muster the courage to venture outside his house.
You gotta hear Zac talk about his problem and how he's now put it in check. It's interesting.
Kiefer And I Drank Hard During '24'
7/29/2014 9:29 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kiefer Sutherland didn't just drink while filming -- "24" co-star Giles Matthey says ... he drank BIG ... which is interesting in the wake of Freddie Prinze, Jr.'s recent rant.
Giles played Jordan Reed on the latest season of the hit show and was known to partake in an adult beverage or two (or 3 or 4) with Kiefer. When we caught up to him back in May, Giles said there's no hops or barley on Jack Bauer's party menu -- only WHISKEY.
"No beers for him," Giles tells us.
This comes on the heels of former "24" star Prinze going off on Kiefer yesterday -- as we reported ... Prinze claimed Kiefer would regularly show up on set drunk and was so unprofessional Freddie almost quit acting altogether.
Cool thing is -- this video was shot two months ago, so Giles wasn't reacting to recent events.
Gotta give it to Kiefer, though ... when he goes hard, so does everybody else -- he's well known for ringing the bell and hooking up the entire bar.
Kandi Burruss' Tour Demands
Don't Even Think of KFC
I WANT POPEYES!
7/29/2014 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kandi Burruss' backstage demands are HILARIOUS ... whatever you do, don't screw with her Popeyes fried chicken!
TMZ has obtained a copy of Burruss' contract rider ... listing her demands for the touring production of her musical show, "A Mother's Love" ... and she's VERY picky.
When it comes to food ... the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" star demands Popeyes fried chicken. The contract states: "Please do not substitute for KFC or Churches, we know the difference."
But ... even though she won't eat KFC birds ... she insists on KFC cole slaw.
Burruss is just as finicky about her bathroom requirements ... a brand new toilet seat for starters -- which must be installed under the supervision of the road manager or an assistant. Plus, the bathroom must be fully stocked with Cottonelle toilet paper and Dove soap.
-a black Mercedes Benz Sprinter
-golf carts and umbrellas in case of rain
-a police escort to skirt traffic jams -- because "under no circumstance shall Kandi be delayed arriving at or departing" from the venue.
Kandi's rep confirms the authenticity of the contract.
Andi & Josh
First Public Outing After the Finale
7/29/2014 6:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
With the finale of "The Bachelorette" having aired Monday night, Andi Dorfman and her new fiancé Josh Murray can finally go out in public together ... and they did so the first chance they got.
Dorfman picked Murray over fellow suitor Nick Viall and the new couple immediately jumped on the red eye at LAX to do the morning shows in New York City.
Andi and Josh clearly couldn't wait to be together -- the video was shot around 9:15 PM PT ... and Dorfman making her pick didn't air on the west coast until around 9:45 PM.
Teen Singer Pia Mia
You Made Me Rich!
7/29/2014 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Pia Mia knows it pays to keep up with the Kardashians ... the 17-year-old singer/friend of Kendall and Kylie Jenner just signed a recording contract that will make her rich -- not Kardashian rich ... but close enough.
Pia signed a multi-album deal with Interscope which pays 1.3 mil for her first album ... and up to $9 million more if Interscope green lights her next three albums.
And according to the contract -- obtained by TMZ -- she stands to make even more in bonuses ... if the albums are hits.
Pia -- who was born in Guam -- got her start on YouTube and hit it big when Kim K. posted video of her singing a Drake song at Kylie's 16th birthday party -- with Drake and Kanye front and center.
Tappin' Latin Talent for Co-Host
Lauren Sanchez to Guest
7/28/2014 3:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"The View" producers will give potential replacement co-host Lauren Sanchez her shot at one of the coveted seats when she sits in for Wednesday's episode.
TMZ has learned Sanchez got the call last week, and was told she would be co-hosting with Whoopi Goldberg, Jenny McCarthy and Sherri Shepherd.
Our 'View' sources tell us producers will be watching for Sanchez's "chemistry" with Whoopi -- which makes sense since she's the only one who will be back next season.
As TMZ first told you ... producers are on the hunt for 2 new co-hosts -- one conservative and one Latina. Sanchez -- a former news anchor and 'Extra' host -- was nearly hired in 2000, but they went with Lisa Ling instead.
As Barbara Walters herself put it, Lauren was "thiiis close" to getting the gig back then.
'RHOA' Star Phaedra Parks
I'm NOT Leaving The Show!
7/28/2014 11:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Phaedra Parks is back at work -- shooting episodes for the new season -- and rumors that she's taking a leave of absence are NOT true, sources tell TMZ.
What's more ... we've learned her husband, convicted felon Apollo Nida, is back, too -- at least for a while.
We're told Phaedra and Apollo have been filming for almost a month -- trying to shoot as much as possible before he begins serving his 8-year prison sentence for money fraud.
Sources tell us ... their storyline centers on Apollo's conviction and the upheaval it's caused in their relationship ... a relationship that appears to be on the brink of divorce.
We're told Phaedra may skip some filming to take care of family business ... but there's no way she's leaving the show.
On Jury Duty
7/28/2014 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lisa Kudrow won the lottery today -- completing her jury duty after one day of service.
Lisa just walked out of the Los Angeles County Superior Court in downtown ... where she did her civic duty, and got the outcome everyone prays for when they report: One and done!
Lisa was not selected for a jury panel all day -- and in L.A. County, potential jurors are dismissed after one day if they're not selected.
According to our sources Lisa sat quietly in the jury pool room, and was dressed comfortably ... in smart loafers. Some of the other potential jurors were starstruck, but we're told LK was nothing but friendly.
Freddie Prinze, Jr.
Kiefer Beef Alcohol-Related
Fox Says Hogwash
7/28/2014 1:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Freddie Prinze, Jr. believes alcohol made Kiefer Sutherland impossible to deal with on the set of "24" ... but a key Fox source tells TMZ Freddie's claims are BS.
Sources connected with Freddie tell TMZ ... the actor claims Kiefer would regularly show up on set drunk ... sitting in his trailer often for hours, as everyone waited. The sources say it messed with the lives of the family of cast and crew.
Freddie, we're told, claims Kiefer was temperamental and got people fired he didn't like, yet "24" producers consistently cow-towed to him ... as one source put it, "All they did was keep rewarding him."
Our sources claim Freddie was groomed to take over the series but it became such a nightmare for him he bailed.
Keifer's rep tells TMZ, "Kiefer worked with Freddie Prinze, Jr. more than 5 years ago, and this is the first he has heard of Freddie's grievances." The rep adds, "Kiefer enjoyed working with Freddie and wishes him the best."
A Fox official tells TMZ ... Kiefer was "nothing but professional during the run of the show and is beloved by cast and crew." The honcho adds, "It's so out of left field, 5 years later."
The official goes on, "We wouldn't have done another '24' if Kiefer were anything like Freddie described."
George R.R. Martin
I'm NOT Obsessed With 'Weenies'
... But I Love Boobs!
7/28/2014 12:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
George R.R. Martin says "South Park'" got it all wrong ... claiming he's NOT the wiener-obsessed old man he was made out to be ... he's more of a boob man!
The "Game of Thrones" creator decided to set the record straight at Comic-Con during an interview with Clevver News -- right after he admitted that he's never actually watched the famous "GoT" episode.
"I do have to say I've been told that my character on 'South Park' is obsessed about weenies. I have to deny this as a scurrilous rumor."
But what Martin says next is even more entertaining than watching Lord Tyrion bitch slap Joffrey.
Freddie Prinze Jr.
BASHES KIEFER SUTHERLAND
'Most Unprofessional Dude In the World'
7/28/2014 10:26 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Freddie Prinze Jr. just UNLOADED on Kiefer Sutherland -- saying he HATED working with Kiefer on "24" and calling him the "most unprofessional dude in the world."
Freddie made the comments at Comic-Con -- telling ABC News Radio his experience on "24" in 2010 was so bad, he wanted to quit acting altogether.
"I did '24' ... it was terrible. I hated every moment of it. I just wanted to quit the business after that. So, I just sort of stopped."
He then turned his sights to Sutherland -- saying, "Kiefer was the most unprofessional dude in the world. That's not me talking trash, I'd say it to his face. I think everyone that's worked with him has said that."
In fact, Prinze Jr. still hates Kiefer so badly, he took a shot at the actor for being short -- saying, "I went and worked for Vince McMahon at the WWE, for Christ's sake … but, at least he was cool and tall. I didn't have to take my shoes off to do scenes with him, which they made me do [at 24]. Just put the guy on an apple box or don't hire me next time. You know I'm 6 feet and he's 5'4."
He clearly changed his tune ... back in 2010 Prinze had nothing but good things to say about working with Kiefer.
