Apollopled guilty to one count of Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud – all other charges were dismissed. Apollo was sentenced to 96 months in prison, but he may get out early if he attends a drug rehabilitation program during his stint in the big house.
According to court docs filed last week, Apollo will be on supervision for five years after he’s released. The terms of his supervision are pretty standard, with community service hours to be served, no hanging out with other felons, etc. Apollo also can’t open any new credit cards or lines of credit without approval and more.
Also worth noting is that Apollo will pay restitution. The amount will be decided at a later date, but the court waives the cost of his incarceration and no fine has to be paid.
Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga and Dina Manzo stopped by to chat with the ladies of The View this week. Teresa Tweeted the photo above, “Great interview at @theviewtv with @JennyMcCarthy @SherriEShepherd.”
During her interview Teresa shared that she’s focused on her family and grieving her father-in-law. “This past year has been like a roller coaster. It’s been an amazing education on the way our legal system works. Right now what I’m focusing on is my family. I just lost my father-in-law. My husband, not only did he lose his dad but he lost his best friend…that’s what I’m focusing on my family.”
On Brandi Glanville’s podcast this week she spent time setting the record straight on a few rumors floating around, but she also devoted some time to helping Josh Taekman clear up some misconceptions about his marriage to Kristen.
Kristen Taekman, who is one of Brandi’s BFFs, is new this season on Real Housewives of New York. While we are loving Kristen, her husband Josh has been a little hard to take. Brandi wanted to help by explaining what a great guy Josh is and sharing that editing is making him look like an ass, but he really, really isn’t – he just has a dry sense of humor that’s not coming across well on TV!
Josh called in to Brandi’s podcast and shared that it’s been tough to watch to his scenes on the show each week. “It makes me cringe, it makes me sick to my stomach because Kristen and I have been together almost twelve years, we have a strong relationship. We’re far from perfect just like any relationship. I’m building a business which is incredibly stressful, but at the end of the day we are deeply in love and love our children and have a great working relationship. But we also have a lot of inside jokes and those do not translate at all.”
Catfish Season 3 finale Episode 10- Bianca and Brogan
I can’t believe that it’s already the season finale of Catfish! I’m sad that I joined you mid-season—hopefully I’ll be back!
We’ve returned to the land of ridiculously named twenty-somethings, aka the land of Catfish. Nev gets an email from Bianca- a girl who has been talking to another girl over the internet named Brogan. Bianca fell in love with Brogan because Bianca is really into body modification and Brogan’s pictures depicted her with a lot of tattoos. Bianca felt an instant connection with Brogan, but had never wanted to video chat with her because she thought it would be awkward. Then, all of a sudden, Brogan vanished into thin air. She deleted her Facebook and stopped answering her calls.
Brandi Glanville is fed up, y’all! The Real Housewives of Beverly Hillsstar took to her podcast this week to hit back at some of the crazy rumors floating around and also gives a scathing explanation of why a certain media outlet loathes her and will never write a nice article about her. Hint: it involves drugs.
Brandi first addresses the rumors that Lisa Rinna is joining the cast of Beverly Hills and that Brandi supposedly super jealous over it. Brandi says that she can’t confirm or deny anything regarding casting and says she honestly doesn’t know if Lisa has signed on, but she hasn’t filmed with her. She says that she met Lisa at an event a few years ago and loved her and chatted with her all night. So, jealousy rumors are total B.S.
Brandi shares that a bulk of the negative stories about her originate from Radar and there’s a reason why…
While some of our favorite reality shows may deserve Emmy Awards for their acting and scripts, they DO get some recognition in other categories. The Primetime Emmys were announced this morning and several of our favorite shows made the cut!
Dancing with the Stars, Project Runway, Flipping Out and Million Dollar Listing New York were among the many shows given an Emmy nod today. The Emmy winners will be announced on August 25th. Check out who made the cut!
Melissa Gorga and two of the newbie housewives, Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano, did a few press events together yesterday. The ladies stopped by Extra’s NYC studios at H&M in Times Square to do an interview and chat about the new season.
I think it’s just now hitting me that our only ‘originals’ this year will be Melissa (not technically an original), Teresa Giudice and returning former casts member Dina Manzo. I know not everyone loved Caroline Manzo or Jacqueline Laurita, but it’s going to be a totally different dynamic without them! And it sounds like we won’t be seeing as much of Kathy and Rich Wakile this time around, either.
I’m curious to see what the new cast members bring this season, but if it doesn’t work out, I’m voting for the return of the original cast – Danielle Staub and all! Are you with me?
