2014 was a year for law breaking, court cases, tax issues, and bankruptcies from our favorite reality TV stars.
Below, we’ll update you on who owes what, whose divorce is a mess, who is suing, who is being sued, and who’s going to prison! In addition to adding several new cases to the rosters of law-dabbling reality stars, some stars continued to battle existing cases – such as Jacqueline Laurita‘s and Sonja Morgan‘s bankruptcies.
Meanwhile other stars finally resolved long-standing issues. Undoubtedly the biggest legal drama of the year was Teresa Giudice finally facing a judge and being sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to 4 counts of fraud, which all began way back in 2009 when the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star filed for bankruptcy for an incredible $13 million dollars of debt!
New girl on the block Demetria McKinney was all set to fight Kenya Moore for possession of Roger Bobb‘s cheerio-hoarding heart, but instead they ended up being friends and Demetria had major issues with Phaedra Parks!
Demetria is throwing major shade at Phaedra – and almost what sounds like slander – in a new interview. Demetria labels Phaedra “bitter” and says she got the “karma” she deserved regarding Apollo Nida and all the rumors swirling around her.
The wannabe Real Housewives Of Atlanta star is “absolutely not” friends with Phaedra. “She is easily intimidated by everybody. I understand that life deals everybody a different deck and sometimes the hand you’re dealt isn’t necessarily fair, but turning bitter and turning on everybody around you is just not cool,” Demetria seethes.
After Phaedra Parks hinted that she’d consider visiting Apollo Nida in prison for Christmas it doesn’t appear that she did!
The Real Housewives Of Atlanta star instead opted for a “quiet” traditional Christmas spent in Atlanta with immediate family. Just three days before Christmas, Phaedra was spotted with bestie Kandi Burruss and She By SheBroke at the Atlanta Mayor’s Ball, where she was all smiles.
Hey guys – Brandi Glanville doesn’t like people who hold grudges, which is why she’s been whining about Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes for the last zillion years. Ok, Ok… maybe an unfair example, but what I really mean is Brandi doesn’t like people who hold grudges against her for her bad behavior. So basically she doesn’t like being held accountable, so stoppit Lisa Vanderpump!
All Brandi wants for Christmas is for Lisa to show up at her Housewarming Party way out in the valley, which is a place Lisa hasn’t been since 1977 when after partying with the Rolling Stones they got lost searching for Keith Richards’ sanity. It happens. Anyway, Lisa has never managed to find her way back there again and for that reason, Brandi accuses her of holding onto anger and blaming her for everything. OMG!
This week the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills attended a soiree at Kyle Richards which was masquerading as a casual BBQ, or the way ‘Look how rich I am Kathy Hilton!’ Kyle throws a BBQ (without Coors Light, hot dogs, or chips & dip, which is how ‘Look How Not Rich I Am World!’ me throws a BBQ). Brandi expects us to believe she had fun pestering Lisa all over the smallest house in BH.
This season of Real Housewives Of Atlanta is full of surprises for Cynthia Bailey! From her friendship with NeNe Leakes deteriorating, to Phaedra Parks marriage to Apollo Nida unraveling, to the addition of new Housewives like Demetria McKinney. Cynthia reflects on the latest episode and talks Phaedra and Apollo’s awkward moment and Demetria’s secret relationship to Roger Bobb!
“Demetria and I met a couple of years ago and have always been friendly. We have a few mutual friends and travel in some of the same social circles. We were never close until recently, so yes, I was very surprised to learn that she and Roger were dating,” Cynthia admits. “Let alone for 8 years! LOL!”
Reality TV is usually known for its TERRIBLE fashions, but once in a while a gal (or guy) gets it right. Rarely, but hey – it happens. Lord knows this list was a struggle, I had to really search and search – wrack my memory, so to speak – to find the good looks.
However, after careful consideration, lots of overlooking, and focusing on the positives here’s my pick for best dressed reality TV stars of 2014. Many people are on this list because of progress made – even if it’s merely outfit to outfit progress, but remember we’re thinking positively. <side eye>
Eileen Davidson is finally mingling with the group. They start her off gently, with the upper echelons of Malibu society, to ease her into the currant of RHOBH, by sending her off to lunch with Yolanda Foster, as supervised by Lipsa. Eileen is surprised to learn she and Yolanda have several things in common: children, anguish over the amount of work required of bossing servants around, and a propensity for micromanaging toilet cleaning. Yolanda expects us to believe she cleans her own toilets. Correction: I believe she cleans My Love‘s toilet so she has an excuse to snoop through his personal quarters. You know, just in case he has a few wayward piano keys or Grammys tucked away!
Eileen and Yolanda get along famously. Lisa is relieved. Her job here is done – now she can move on to more pressing personal matters, traveling to her hometown of Medford, OR to help her parents move out of her childhood home. To say it’s sad is an understatement, but it’s also touching and a really nice illustration that Lipsa has a kind soul, a good heart, and a down-to-earth, lovable spirit. She brings her teenaged daughters along with her. They are scoffish about Medford – even Lisa admits she never felt like she fit-in in small-town Oregon, because she was always dying to breakout her inner fabulosity – or her hoo-ha, preferably both (she admitted to wearing skirts so short you could practically see her “hoo-ha”).
As a mother with 4 daughters Kyle is worried for her fellow-Housewife Teresa as she prepares for prison. “I can’t imagine what she’s feeling right now – every day must feel like a countdown,” Kyle expressed.
