Alicia DiMichele Garofalo is in whole heaps of trouble after being embroiled in an embezzlement case. And you know, potentially serving time interferes with your ability to appear on Mob Wives, so Alicia quit the show! With her husband already serving ten-years, she awaits sentencing.
Alicia's official song and dance is that she wants to focus on her kids, which is probably a good idea just in case she heads to the slammer. But she also had a rough time on the Mob Wives. Weighing in on Alicia's departure, Renee Graziano and Drita D'avanzo spoke to Radar Online.
"Honestly, I was a little surprised she joined the cast because of her whole court case. The show didn’t bring her any good, so I can see why she’s pulling out now,” Reneeacknowledged.
If twitter is an indicator of fact, the sisters-in-law have laid their battle axes down and are at least getting along-ish for the children. Our source confirms the SIL at war storyline is all but dead. Thank you Jesus! "Season 6 of RHONJ is nothing like the past few seasons," our source assures us!
"Teresa and Melissa were forced to play nice. Off camera, they have NO relationship. The kids do see each other and have interaction. But, that is about it," our source adds.
Did the entire cast of Real Housewives of New York lose their minds (I mean, that's insinuating they had minds to begin with, but…) – someone must have spiked the pinot! Sonja Morgan is in hot water – and I don't mean in the spa hot tub. She's got a mess of financial issues that are literally drowning her. Because Ramona Singer has issues of her own, she's decided to ignore them and focus all of her animosity on taking care of Sonja. It doesn't bode well for Ramonja! Is Turtle Time dead? (Please say yes!).
Sonja has a pool day, so she and her intern hit up the local Whole Foods some refreshments and then hire a the DJ/Bar Tender. The guests? Sonja, Aviva Drescher, and Ramona. Yes – Sonja hired a DJ and bar tender for this. "If you don't feel decadent, you're doing something wrong!" Sonja explains. Something wrong like spending money on things like DJs when your iPod playlist will do just fine? Something like that decadence? #ThisIsWhyYoureBankrupt
Apparently Ramona doesn't care about those lettersMario's mistress, Kasey Dexter, is leaking to the tabloids about her amazing sex life with Mario. Perhaps Ramona was sipping on the pinot when she made her trip to the courthouse to file – or perhaps she's sipping on the pinot now because Ramona and Mario just spent a romantical weekend together celebrating his birthday. Modern romance…
Tom Murro shares with us that Ramona has had a "change of heart" concerning Mario. The Real Housewives of New York stars spent the weekend celebrating with friends for a bit of a NYC staycation. They started the festivities at Lavo Nightclub, then checked into the Pierre Hotel where they spent Saturday having breakfast in bed.
On last night's 16 And Pregnant, seventeen-year-old Millina Kacmar and boyfriend Trevor dealt with trying to parent son Kayden and parent their own mothers who were at least as immature and needy as the infant, right?
Millina's mom is in jail for drugs and her father is flaky and broke (and in the past he was abusive), so she and her younger brother Moses live with their grandmother Nan. Millina is dating Trevor – and his pornstache – but has trouble trusting him because of her rocky childhood. As a result of her mom's issues Millina dropped out of school and fell into the rave scene including all the drugs, alcohol, hideous neon fashions, piercings, and all-nighters it had to offer. That's also where she met Trevor.
Millina realizes she has to give up the party scene for her son because she worries about turning into her mom and losing her son to Child Protective Services. She confides in her friend Haley that she freaks out about this daily.
We're still at Shannon's dinner party and tensions are running high. I blame Shannon and her non-organic vodka and her totally toxic marriage, despite the efforts of radiation detectors. Where's the detector that detects the bad vibes Shannon radiates?! She's got everyone gripping their knives for protection and wondering when the next onslaught is going to come. At least the food was good – everyone talks about the food – and the house.
Heather is most on edge of all. Fancy Pants doesn't like the new girl with her shi-shi-shi house giving her a run for her fancy pants money. To assert her crown Heather starts taking it out on the little people. She tells Vicki to hush (which finally, somebody did!) and stop interrupting while Shannon tells her Unhappily Married Support Group opener about how she was the girl who could never be alone and then she married David because well, he said hey!
Vicki Gunvalson has been making decisions with her empty love tank. And unfortunately her mid-life crisis love tank is leading her to Brooks Ayers!
Despite everyone in her life seriously questioning her decisions in the romance department leading to family and friends ostracizing her and beau Brooks (is he not sending them enough affirming Hallmark cards?) the Real Housewives of Orange County star insists she has no regrets when it comes to the choices she's made!
"I can't tell you how difficult this has been having my daughter and myself continue to not see eye-to-eye on some very important issues," Vickiadmits in her Bravo blog.
On last night's episode of Married To Medicine things got real as the ladies explored health, friendship, and marriage.
Things begin with Quad Webb-Lunceford doing some investigative research (aka shopping) for her puppy couture line. Is this real? I mean, is this something that's really happening or is it like a jokey storyline. Apparently not because Quad's eyes glow as she describes herself as "Louis Vuitton of dog couture."
Quad has visions of ostrich, and sequins, and leather – for dogs. And she also has visions of checks in the bank. She's savvy enough to recognize she needs Lisa Nicole Cloud as a business advisor or else she'll spend all her profits on herself. Quad believes in going big – and then going bigger, which means seriously styling her pooches as if they are Housewives. Cocktail dresses – check! Swarovski crystals – check! Botox – check! Jimmy Choos – not yet!
