As always, the episode starts with Kim talking to precious K.J. (is he always in a skull cap?) about the big day. The last minute preparations are happening in the back yard. Brielle and Ariana bring Kim breakfast. Kim reveals that the always romantic Kroy has insisted that they don’t see each other on the day leading up to the wedding. The couple won’t be honeymooning until after football season.
Assistant SweetieNiki is now going to serve as matron of honor in place of Kim’s biffle Jen. With all the changes that must take place in order to have Niki ready for the big day, Kim enlists Brielle to call her to make sure she will still have time to fix the girls’ hair. There is one thing that isn’t causing Kim any stress, and that is Antonio Davis. Security is making sure that he isn’t allowed to set foot on his property.
As reported last week, Joe Guidice is facing potential jail time due to all his shady dealings regarding his counterfeit driver’s license. The prosecutor isn’t likely to come to a plea agreement that doesn’t include some time served, and Joe’s attorney warns that all the talk of the incidents on the show are tainting the potential jury pool.
If Joe does go to jail, one can only wonder WWTD? Teresa Guidice already has a strained relationship with brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa (to say the least), but jail time for hubby could only add to the gossip and hatefulness that is bringing down the show. Also up against Teresa is Manzo matriarch Caroline, who recently said, “I hold Teresa responsible for a lot of relationships in my life that are hurting. Of course I fight with my brothers and sisters…the difference is, she puts the wood on my family’s fire. I put the lid on hers.”
Uh oh. Could everyone’s favorite Real Housewives of Orange County couple be heading for Splitsville (population Slade Smiley)? I know you will all be as devastated as I am if this is true. A source close to Gretchen Rossi (of course) recently spilled some dirt on the couple’s relationship to RadarOnline.com, and said source doesn’t appear to be a fan of Sladey Wadey.
“Gretchen is growing tired of taking care of Slade and paying for everything in his life and she’s just about had it,” the insider tells the site.
“She is supporting him and helping to pay his legal bills and it’s getting to be too much for her,” the source reveals. “Gretchen is seriously considering ending the relationship because she’s sick of doing everything for Slade.”
History is repeating itself for Big Ang of Mob Wives. The New York Post is reporting that her son A.J. D’Onofrio was arrested for allegedly pushing painkillers, marijuana, and cocaine. The twenty-three-year old was indicted as part of five-person narcotics ring. The dealer who introduced undercover officers to A.J. and the other men who were arrested had been working with police for months. I guess this isn’t the last we’ll be hearing about rats!
A.J. was charged with criminal sale of a controlled substance, criminal possession of a controlled substance and conspiracy according to a source. The source adds that this isn’t A.J.’s first run in with the law either. He has pleaded guilty to DWI, was accused of hitting a man with a pipe, and has other prior drug arrests.
Just today a Brooklyn judge ordered AJ to be held on $200,000 bond for his alleged offenses. AJ pleaded not-guilty to the charges. His mom the infamous Big Ang was not present in court today.
“This was a long-term investigation,” assistant district attorney Timothy Gearon told the NY Post. “Over 700 oxycodone pills were sold and the price of that was close to $14,000.” A video of the news report covering the incident is below.
All should be fine if A.J.’s Twitter is correct though. He writes, “i run my hood im the boss of all bosses and all u haters can keep hating slime” And there you have it!
This week on Around the World in 80 Plates, we’re down one chef with potential anger issues. After Chaz Brown is voted off, his remaining teammates (Gary Walker and Nick Lacasse) are now the team captains for the two new groups before the group travels to Florence, Italy. They each must choose the chefs for their competitor’s team. Yikes!
Nick of the black team picks Liz Garrett for Gary’s first teammate, which is odd considering she won immunity in the most recent challenge. In turn, the red team’s Gary gives Nick Nicole Lou. John Vermiglio joins Gary’s team, and Nookie Postal is sent to Nick’s team. Nick chooses Jenna Johansen for Gary’s final chef, and Gary is happy as she speaks Italian. By default, Avery Pursell is Nick’s final addition.
It honestly may be Christmas in June. Thank you Real Housewives of Orange County! A little nugget known as Jim Bellino’schin blog has officially made my day. In excerpts from a post written at the beginning of May, he interviews himself. It’s brilliant. Technically, he’s not the one who generated the questions, but he’s certainly answering them in pure Jimbo fashion.
It’s once again time for Dr. Drew Pinsky and his diluted and passive advice to this past season’s crop of 16 & Pregnant girls. Yes, it’s Life After Labor, y’all, and it’s an hour and a half! He touts the triumphs and challenges of the most recent teen moms, and, as you all know, we’re treated to quite an emotional video montage.
Briana, who graduated high school a year early (the girl whose sister had an abortion around the same time Briana got pregnant) is first on Dr. Drew’s sofa. She’s still sporting her adorable cropped haircut. She’s joined by her mother and sister. Everyone is crying. Her mother is devastated, saying it’s not the path she wanted for her daughters. Her sister seems very defensive when answering Drew’s questions about her abortion. More tears. She’s worried her family will feel guilty for her actions. Briana cries saying she had to give up school, and all of her friends have abandoned her.
News flash! Brandi Glanville of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is not, I repeat IS NOT, a mean girl. Like, in no way, shape, or form, has fame gone to her head, and she is just as down to earth as she was when she was in a plane, season two, high on Xanax. That’s how down to earth she is.
RadarOnline.com is reporting that Brandi is very troubled by the recent gossip of her diva behavior. However, a source close to Bravo (where else?) tells the site that Brandi is playing for the cameras for more of a story line.
