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.
She’s ba-ack! It’s Abby Lee Miller, suckers! I am a bit frightened watching the highlights from last season’s original Dance Moms. I had forgotten who intense it was!
The girls and moms are ready for the pyramid, and the women are polling the kids as to who will thinks Abby will apologize for storming out in the past season’s finale. The girls know that she won’t. Holly thinks Abby ditched the troupe at competition because poor Maddie forgot her dance, and Holly finds Abby’s behavior deplorable. It’s interesting to watch this after Dance Moms: Miami, where the instructors were so nurturing to the kids…they just (rightfully) thought the moms were insane!

Oh good gravy! Those Kardashians will never go gently into that good night, will they? I guess I have to take some of the blame for still writing about them, but what can I do? (Stop writing about them, I hear you) Perhaps today I’ll write about the authority on all things love-related…at least in Bravolebrity world.
Patti Stanger, everyone’s favorite Millionaire Matchmaker, recently spoke with HollywoodLife.com about the whole Kimye phenomenon. Of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s fauxmance romance she exclaims, “This is a good, good fit for her and I hope that Kris [Jenner], her mother, gives the blessing because I think they’ll end up getting married. I really do. I think he has known the family long enough to know what the problems are. I love it. KK babies all the way! I think that they both made a mistake at one point in their life. They understand each other and they were friends first. Friends are the best foundation for a really good marriage.”

Good gracious, last night was the Basketball Wives Reunion, and I must say I was a tad scared to watch it. The majority of those ladies (bwahahaha!) are seriously unhinged. Once again, John Salley hosts the parade of crazy. He begins by introducing the veterans–Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, Suzie Ketcham, and Royce Reed, followed by the newbies–Kesha Nichols and Kenya Bell. John next touts Shaunie O’Neal as their team captain. If nostrils looks could kill, John would be a dead man.
He announces that Jennifer Williams is backstage, and Evelyn thinks it’s for the best. What in the world is up with her hair?? John asks Shaunie to address the violence on this season. Is it just me or does she look like a hot pink penguin? She hopes that all her cast mates use the show as a mirror, and she believes that each woman takes responsibility for their actions. Sure they do! Evelyn is always once to admit fault. Shaunie throws around the buzz word “balance” several times before reveling in applause.
