Kelly Bensimon 50 Reasons Why ... I'm Slaying in a Swimsuit!!!

12/10/2018 2:10 PM PST

Kelly Bensimon is one smoking hot mom -- the former model and 'Real Housewives of New York' star hit the beach to prove her hotness is still on point.

Seriously, 50-year-old Kelly went peak MILF when she slipped her rockin' bod into a couple of sexy swimsuits from Melissa Odabash and turned up the heat for a Miami photo shoot. 

Check out the gallery ... Kelly wasn't afraid to get down in the sand and the surf. She also did her best "Baywatch" from a lifeguard tower.

If Harry Dubin's looking at these pics ... he's gotta be pissed Kelly's not on his lengthy list of 'RHONY' hookups. Sorry, bro. 

The only person NOT hyped about this is Father Time.

Seriously, Kelly's essentially flipping him off!

Phaedra Parks to Cardi B It's Good to Book Work ... But Don't Get Booked to Jail!!!

12/5/2018 8:01 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Phaedra Parks wants Cardi B to handle her business -- in court, that is, before it starts affecting her money biz.

We got the 'RHOA' star Tuesday night heading into NYC's Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum for the TPG Awards and wanted to kill 2 birds with one stone -- getting a celeb lawyer to weigh in on Cardi skipping her Monday court date to shoot a music video.

As we first reported, Cardi pissed off the judge in her strip club beatdown case when she was a no-show to Monday's court hearing in NYC. Turns out she was twerking her ass off in Miami ... for work, of course.

Remember, the judge's already warned Cardi -- show up to court Friday or face arrest. Phaedra's free advice ... just get it over with, Cardi.

'RHONY' Star Ramona Singer Booze to Blame for Harry Kiss ... We're Not a Couple!!!

12/5/2018 12:10 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Ramona Singer and Harry Dubin are just friends -- friends who had one drunken makeout sesh -- but we're told they're definitely not banging ... not at this point.

Sources close to the kissing pals tell TMZ ... the 'RHONY' star and Dubin are not dating or even going the "friends with benefits" route. Despite the fact they were inhaling each other's faces Friday night in NYC, we're told there was nothing Biblical about how the night ended.

Translation: no nookie.

Our sources say Ramona and Harry were just talking and flirting and maybe definitely had too much to drink ... which led to the passionate kiss. We're told both are happily still single though.

As you 'Housewives' fans know ... Harry's got a long history with the 'Housewives' -- he's divorced from Aviva Drescher and is a former flame of Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps.

But, for now -- when it comes to Ramona -- a deep tongue kiss is JUST a kiss.

'RHONY' Star Ramona Singer Add Me to Harry Dubin's 'Housewives' Hookup List

12/4/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

We probably shoulda put a graphic warning on this ... but yeah, that's Ramona Singer heading down the well-beaten 'Housewives' path to Big Apple bachelor Harry Dubin's lips.

We got these shots of Ramona and Harry devouring each other's faces in NYC. We're told the booze-fueled makeout sesh went down around midnight Friday at Pomona restaurant in Midtown.

The 'RHONY' star -- clearly single and ready to mingle -- hooked up with Harry in a lounge area of the hot spot, locking lips most of the night ... according to witnesses. 

We're told Tinsley Mortimer was also there, but wasn't engaging in any softcore PDA like this. 

Ya gotta hand it to Harry ... the dude must have something going on, having now hooked up with nearly a handful of 'Housewives' -- from his ex-wife Aviva Drescher to former flames Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps

Might be time to expand your dating pool, bro.

Jill Zarin 'RHONY' Return Comes with New BF

11/22/2018 12:20 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Jill Zarin's return to "The Real Housewives of New York City" will touch on the new man in her life and her relationships with other cast members ... but her story's only getting part-time shine.

Production sources tell TMZ ... Jill's role on the upcoming season of 'RHONY'  that of contributor -- not a regular -- as a "friend" to full-time 'housewives' like Ramona Singer, Luann de Lesseps, Dorinda Medley, Sonja Morgan and Tinsley Mortimer.

We're told Jill's filmed episodes for Season 11 in which she divulges details about how she's found happiness with her new boyfriend, Gary Brody, following the death of her husband Bobby earlier this year after a long battle with cancer. Jill appeared briefly in Season 10 when the cast attended the funeral.

Our sources say it's unclear how much the show will touch on Jill's life in the aftermath of Bobby's death or her new rug line business, Jill Zarin Rugs Collection, but will definitely cover her relationship with Brody ... who she started dating a couple months ago.

We're told the 2 have known each other longer, but bonded over tennis and things got serious quickly -- they're already living together in Manhattan.

As for Zarin's "friend" status with the cast ... we're told it doesn't apply to Bethenny Frankel, with whom she had a notorious falling out years ago. Our sources say the women are cordial, though still not close enough to hang out.

As we reported, Frankel dealt with a tragic loss of her own recently ... when her boyfriend died of a suspected OD. It's highly likely 'RHONY' will cover that incident.

The new season is expected to premiere in Spring 2019. We reached out to Bravo ... so far, no word back.

Lisa Vanderpump Special Place at Gala for Dogs Affected by Woolsey Wildfire

11/16/2018 2:09 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Lisa Vanderpump's opened her heart and wallet for dogs all over the world ... but those affected by the California wildfire are a plight that hits close to home, and she's doing her best to help.

The 'RHOBH' star tells TMZ ... her annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Fundraising Gala was once again an incredible success thanks to several familiar faces who, as she puts it, know how to walk the walk. As we reported ... a portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

It's truly incredible the work Lisa's done to help man's best friend ... from her gala to opening a sanctuary in China that's already adopted nearly 800 dogs. 

We also talked to Lisa about how a very tough 2018 for her personally has meant less time with her 'Housewives' castmates -- on camera and off.

However, LV made it clear ... you're getting the wrong idea if you think her reduced time on 'RHOBH' means she's leaving the show. She told us exactly where her loyalties lie and why.  

Lisa Vanderpump If I Were Leaving 'RHOBH' ... You'd Hear it From Me!

11/15/2018 7:19 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

11/15 -- We got Lisa out later Wed, and she insisted that if there was any news about her role on the show, she wouldn't let the rumor mill churn, she would address it herself.

She also had a message for everyone clamoring for news about the show -- priorities, people!

Lisa Vanderpump has NOT decided to leave "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" ... contrary to new reports.

Sources close to Lisa tell TMZ ... the reality is, reality shows are not the center of her life the way they used to be, but that doesn't mean she's hanging up the towel. Sources very, very close to Lisa say she honestly has not made a decision about future seasons, although she has finished filming Season 8.

As for her decision not to go to France ... we're told her priority was her Vanderpump Foundation Gala, which she's throwing Thursday night. A portion of the proceeds will go to animals affected by the California wildfires.  

Lisa, we're told, finds it a little absurd that anyone is focusing on the next season of 'Real Housewives' when it seems half the state of California is on fire. As it was put to us, "She doesn't give a s**t about casting for Season 9."

As for why she's been a lady of few words on the current season ... she's emotionally upset over the death of her brother, who passed days before filming began for season 8.

From our point of view ... it feels like a toss-up as to whether Lisa returns, but it's clear based on our conversations ... she hasn't decided one way or the other.

Luann de Lesseps Celebrates 100+ Days of Sobriety And 'Housewives' Return

11/14/2018 12:50 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Luann de Lesseps is making a strong comeback to close out 2018 ... nearly a year after spiraling out of control and getting arrested in Florida.

We've learned Luann recently celebrated more than 100 days of being clean and sober, and it's triggered a positive domino effect in her personal life. She's returned as a regular for an all-new season of 'Housewives,' and is already shooting scenes.

We're told she missed the reunion episode taping back in July, but only because she'd checked into rehab.

That was her second time in rehab since her Palm Beach arrest on Christmas Eve 2017 ... for allegedly attacking a cop during a drunken rampage. She eventually struck a sweet plea deal.

Luann tells us, "I take my sobriety very seriously and continue taking it one day at a time. Every step forward is a means toward a better life for me and my family."

On the family front, we told you her ex-husband and kids had sued her for breaking her divorce deal -- but we're told she's patching things up with them and working on an amicable resolution.

Luann's also been traveling around the country with her cabaret show, and recently launched a jewelry line that was filmed for an episode of 'RHONY' at SuperJeweler in Manhattan. 

She credits yoga and the Zen surroundings of her new lakefront home in upstate NY for keeping her grounded ... and sober.

Camille Grammer Loses Home In California Wildfire

11/11/2018 8:00 AM PST
Exclusive Details

Camille Grammer is one of the many people who lost their homes in the terrible California wildfires.

Firefighters fought valiantly to save the home, but the fire was just too ferocious. It burned to the ground Saturday night.

Camille has had a rough go, we're told her assistant died last week,

So far, 177 homes have been lost in the Woolsey fire and things could get a lot worse. The Santa Ana winds are expected to kick up Sunday morning and last for 2 days. The winds are the most treacherous condition firefighters have been battling. 

All of Malibu has been evacuated. Lots of people are enraged that Donald Trump has cast blame on Californians on the fires ... a baseless claim that only makes a terrible situation even worse. 

Teddi Jo Mellencamp Make Way For My Stepmama!!! Meg Ryan May Appear on 'RHOBH'

11/10/2018 10:25 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Make room Charlie Sheen, 'cause there may be another high-profile guest making an appearance on 'Real Housewives' ... Teddi Jo Mellencamp's future stepmom, Meg Ryan!

We got Teddi, Lisa Rinna and Kyle Richards Friday at LAX. Their reaction is priceless when we "break the news" on John Mellencamp's engagement to Meg. Needless to say ... they were in the loop.

Naturally, we had to know if there was any chance Meg would make an appearance on the show. Teddi doesn't exactly rule it out but ya might wanna hold your breath on that one.

Remember, Kyle spilled the beans back in August on Denise Richards' ex, Charlie, possibly making an appearance this season. With Meg now in the mix you have to wonder, who else is gonna show up?

Danielle Staub My Ex Secretly Listed Our House!! He Left Me Out in the Cold

11/8/2018 2:22 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Imagine finding out your estranged spouse put your house up for sale without telling you, and if not for a friend's phone call ... you'd never know it -- well that's exactly what happened to Danielle Staub

Sources tell TMZ ... the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' star found out about the listing first thing Thursday morning when a friend called her. We're told Marty Caffrey, Danielle's estranged husband, is listing their NJ mansion for over $2 million.  

We're told Danielle started crying when she got the news. That's totally understandable because Danielle currently lives there with her youngest daughter! We're told she called Marty to hear it from the horse's mouth, and then called her lawyer to see if she can block the sale. 

Danielle and Marty are going through a messy divorce, but they've been sharing the mansion since the split. Yes, it's 7,500 square feet, but it's still uncomfortable. We're told Danielle feels like she has to close her doors.

The brick colonial was built in 1950 and boasts 6 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms and 10-foot ceilings. Great buy for someone, but meanwhile ... Danielle's screwed. Her rep tells us, “This is yet another example of the blatant disrespect and emotional abuse she has endured in this relationship.”

Worth noting, Marty and Danielle only got married back in May. Now suddenly, the 'Real Housewife' is gonna be an ex-wife ... with NO house.

Ouch.

Kenya Moore Gives Birth Early To 1st Child w/ Marc Daly

11/4/2018 1:50 PM PST

Kenya Moore is a mom for the first time at age 47, but she gave birth this weekend a few weeks early due to health complications.

The 'RHOA' star revealed she'd given birth to a baby girl, Brooklyn Doris Daly, early Sunday morning with her husband, Marc Daly, by her side. Kenya said she'd be delivering her baby early because she'd developed preeclampsia. She was due around Thanksgiving.

View this post on Instagram

If you want to make God laugh have a plan... won't be long now. Pray for us 🙏🏾 #babydaly #weloveyou #prayers

A post shared by Kenya Moore Daly (@thekenyamoore) on

Kenya appears to be doing better now, sending out an update on her health via Instagram, saying ... "She's so perfect and strong! Marc was incredible in the deliver room. I lost a lot of blood so I'm very weak but they both were strong for me."

She added ... "God is so good. We are blessed and doing well. My heart is so full at the abundance of love for our family! We love you all."

This would be Kenya's first kid ever, and a lot of people doubted she was even pregnant when she first made the announcement earlier this year. Her ultrasound put those questions to rest ... and, obviously, an actual baby does too.

Congrats!

Larsa Pippen Files for Divorce From Scottie Pippen

11/2/2018 4:08 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

4:08 PM PT -- Larsa tells us, "It is with deep sadness that Scottie and I announce that we are legally separating. We have both tried very hard for a long time to make our marriage work and have ultimately come to the conclusion that it is best that we live separate lives."

She continues, "We have so many amazing memories together, remain best of friends and love each other very much. Our four children have always been our priority and for their sake we ask for as much privacy as possible for our family during this sensitive time."

2:59 PM PT -- According to the court docs, Larsa lists the date of separation as October 29. She's also asking for joint legal and physical custody of their 4 minor children. 

She's also asking for spousal support. Unclear how much she's seeking but they live a very wealthy lifestyle so you know it ain't gonna be nominal. 

Larsa and Scottie Pippen are getting divorced. We've learned Larsa filed legal docs Friday in L.A. County Superior Court to end their marriage. 

They've had multiple issues over the years ... Scottie filed for divorce back in 2016 but they called it off last year. Just before he filed, cops came to their home twice for domestic disturbance calls, but no one was arrested. Larsa told cops Scottie scared her.

Sources connected to the couple tell us, there's no scandal this time around. The 2 have just grown apart over the last few years and decided to end their relationship. They're still committed to co-parenting their kids, but they don't want to be married anymore.  

Larsa was hanging out at Kendall Jenner's Halloween party without Scottie -- and having a great time partying with people like Kim K and French Montana

Larsa is best friends with Kim and the Kardashians and hangs out with them a lot. 

When they filed in 2016, a rep for the couple told TMZ, "After careful consideration and 19 years together, Larsa and Scottie have each filed for dissolution of their marriage. Although they are no longer to be married, Larsa remains hopeful that she and Scottie will always do what is best for their 4 beautiful children and jointly raise them with love and respect."

The couple has 4 kids and married in 1997. The two moved from Miami to L.A. last year and now their son, Scotty Pippen Jr., has blossomed into one of the best high school basketball players around. 

The move was also great for their 9-year-old daughter Sophia Pippen who got cast on "Dancing with the Stars: Juniors." She was eliminated last month but the exposure is clearly huge for her career if she wants to continue in showbiz.
