A new TMZ report reveals that Aaron owes the IRS over a million in back taxes. Documents were filed in Los Angeles yesterday, showing the former teen heartthrob owes a staggering $1,010,635.08 to the government.
It has been reported in the past that all the stars on DWTS get paid a nice amount to participate in the show. The amount allegedly ranges from $100,000 to $300,000 with bonuses for the first and second runner ups.
Jo appeared on the 1st and 2nd seasons of the show as the fiance of Slade Smiley. In this new interview, Jo talks about her feelings towards Slade and Gretchen’s new dating relationship (Gretchen was friends with both Jo and Slade), the new man in her life (pictured above) and why she chose not to return to the show this season.
Excerpts from Jo’s interview below -
Q. Reality Wanted: Will you make an appearance in Season 5 of The Real Housewives of Orange County?
A. Jo: It is one of those things where, I left the show back in Season 2, and my life is so different now, who I am now compared to who I was 4 years ago. I live in LA now. There were talks of me coming on the show to confront Gretchen and Slade, but I need to be selfless at this point. Regardless of how I feel about them being together, this is Gretchen and Slade’s time in the spotlight and I just want to move forward with my music. It would have put me back out there in the public eye, but for all the wrong reasons. I will forever be thankful for The Real Housewives of Orange County, because that is how I got my start, but I have my own story that I have to tell through my music, and for me to go back to confront the past just doesn’t make sense.
Q. Reality Wanted: How long did you & Slade date? Even on Date My Ex, he was always with you…
A. Jo: We were together for five years. Here is the funny thing, some insider information: even though I was on the show; I was still in love with Slade. I was still trying to work things out. It was never really over for Slade and I. Even after Date My Ex, Slade and I were still trying to work it out and then….came Gretchen.
Q. Reality Wanted: On the show, Gretchen said that she called you to let you know about her and Slade, even though he had said not to. Is this accurate?
A. Jo: She called me because I found out from her ex-boyfriend Jay that Slade and Gretchen were hooking up. So the whole reason she called me was because it was already out. She actually called me when Slade was in jail and she was asking for help. (Smiley was arrested in February 2009 for unpaid child support, purportedly at Rossi’s Costa Mesa home.) I was just like, “How can you call me and ask me for help when I just found out that you are sleeping with Slade?” The truth of the matter is that it is what it is, and Gretchen, to me, is…it’s just dumb. We were ALL friends, you know, no matter how close we were, I just wish they would have come to me first, without me having to find out the way that I did. Even being able to talk to Slade on it, one on one, but they didn’t even give me that. I just have to move forward, and not have a confrontation on camera. He was the love of my life, and she knew that. I was with him for 5 years, we were engaged, I acted as the mother of his children, and I was building a life with this man, and she was the girl that I knew, and you know what it is, at the end of the day, I just hate the way it all came down and came to an end. Slade and I are no longer even friends, and I haven’t even been able to talk to him face to face about it, and I know that is because of her (Gretchen).

The reality star, 26, who battled a bad case of the swine flu last month, will be performing live on Tuesday night’s live results show. “I’m so excited but I’m not nervous. I’m not being judged so it’s all for fun. But I remember that feeling last season when I made it to the semifinals. I was so happy I made it, but I also knew how much hard work was ahead,” says Melissa.
In other news, host Samantha Harris, believes viewers are in for an exciting semi final week.“It’s anyone’s game,” says Harris. “The competition has picked up so much momentum in the past two weeks and now it’s come down to the final four and the right final four.”
In a new interview with SeattlePI, Molly Malaney opens up about her new life post The Bachelor. Molly talks about her recent engagement to Jason Mesnick, dealing with her new found fame, and settling down in Seattle with Jason, and his son Ty. Molly reveals that she and Jason are planning to get married within the next year.
Excerpts from Molly’s Interview below -
On Wedding Date – No. We haven’t had even a minute to think about the wedding. We haven’t even had one discussion about it. Now that things are slowing down, I think we’ll start talking. There are so many different factors: Is it going to be on TV? Is it going to be part of a magazine spread? Or are we just going to do it ourselves? It will definitely be in the next year.
On Dealing With Tabloid Attention – It’s amazing, seeing how personally invested people get. A lot of it, first of all, just with all the backlash that happened after the show, it was like, “Hello, people. It’s a television show!” Even today there’s still a small group of people who are still upset about it and still have animosity toward Jason and it’s just so strange to me.
I can’t say I regret going on the show or going through all the tabloid drama because I met the person I’m going to spend the rest of my life with, which makes it worth it. And I think a lot of our success comes from having gone through all that negativity. I mean, it sucked. It totally sucked going through it, but it brought us a lot closer.
On Life With Jason – We are complete opposites. Oh my God. Two totally separate people. But it works. We disagree about any little thing. What to eat, how to rearrange the living room. But at the end of the day we love going to bed together and waking up next to each other and just being with each other. So our personalities definitely complement themselves. But he is so carefree and easygoing, doesn’t let a thing bother him. Everything just slides off. And he is such a glass-half-full kind of person. He always sees the positive side of everything. Whereas I am very square and safe and play by the rules, I’m very organized, and very consistent, so yeah — we’re very different. But we pull each other in the right direction. He eases me up a little bit and I kind of wrangle him in.
The estranged couple will discuss the recent events since their split earlier this year and how they went from reality TV family to being in the tabloids daily. In addition, they plan to address their future projects and plans for their children.
Besides showing the meeting between Jon and Kate, the last episode will also feature Kate’s trip with the kids to a dairy farm and firehouse. The show which started on TLC in 2004 will air its final episode November 23.
This is a rather interesting update considering TLC is currently suing Jon, and vice versa.

“We’re trying to be peaceful with each other,” NeNe told PEOPLE Thursday at Tao Las Vegas. “Kim and I have an up-and-down relationship. Don’t be surprised if we have a falling out again. That’s just how we are.”
Throughout the second season of the show, Kim and NeNe fought and made up. Then, Kim accused NeNe of choking her. They also fought because Kim refused to let NeNe sing on her hit song “Tardy For The Party”.
Now that the 2nd season is over, the two remain civil. Recently, both NeNe and Kim were spotted having dinner in Los Angeles. The frenimies certainly know how to have fun together especially over a glass of wine. According to NeNe, they will continue to be civil as anyone can expect. “We’re not friends and we will probably never be friends,” NeNe said, “but we’re just trying to be respectful”.
