Just in time for the holidays, Albert Manzo is getting a lawsuit in his stocking. Oopsie!
A waitress claims that Al and his brother Tommy Manzo (you know… Dina's hubby!) stiffed her of overtime pay plus called her and other co-workers "Spic bitches" along with other "racial, sexual, ethnic and country of origin epithets."
Lanise Jackson filed a suit against the former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars and Brownstone manager Robert Manger. Her lawsuit states she was employed there from October 2011 to April 2012 and then again from September to November 2013 when she was "constructively terminated as she could no longer endure the racial, sexual, ethnic and country of origin epithets hurled at her hourly."
Tamra's three kids were once part of her storyline as the "hottest Housewife in the OC" in her dreams, but ever since their divorce Simon has refused to let the kids be filmed for the show. He claims they hate the show and that it's better for them to be kept away from the spotlight! I agree. Simon even refused to drop his position to permit his children to be seen on Tamra's OC Wedding.
Tamra, of course, desperately wants her kids on film and like all good famewhores, she's fighting Simon on the matter. Tamra filed a court order to petition a judge to overturn Simon's ban, stating: “Petitioner (Simon) is acting in bad faith. When he himself was on the show, prior to our separation, he had no issue at all in consenting to the children’s participating."
“Now that we are separated, the Petitioner refused to allow the kids to partake and has directly threatened legal action against the network," say documents obtained by Radar Online. When filming for Tamra's wedding Simon did threaten the network not to even show the kids in passing – allegedly.
“My first marriage ended in divorce,” the former Real Housewives of Orange County star told In Touch Weekly. “And then my second fiancé passed away, so I kind of felt jinxed.” Gretchen joined the cast with Slave to address her commitment phobia issues. I think she only has commitment issues when the engagement ring is sub-par!
If you recall in an episode of RHOC the ladies even had a botox party there – remember Alexis worked for Dr. Niccole! He also did her nose job, which was completely for medical reasons of course…
Dr. Niccole's two daughters Brittani and Charm have been the recipient of several of his procedures, including boob jobs! In fact Charm got her first operation at aged 10 when Dr. Niccole – HER DAD – turned her outie belly button into an innie. It's called a navel lift!
"Having surgery done by my dad makes sense – he's the best at what he does and I know I'm in safe hands," Charm, 25, explained. "Every other month I'll get something done to my skin." Mostly botox and peels. She also gets botox under her armpits to prevent sweating! #necessities
The ladies of Real Housewives of Atlantalove to argue over body parts! From wigs, to teeth, to bootys – and now "head". Oh goodness.
On last week's episode NeNe Leakes finally admitted to knowing of Phaedra Parks from growing up in their tiny town of Athens by revealing that Ms. Southern Belle had a bit of a reputation as the "head doctor". That's classy!
I was disappointed that the normally classy Mrs. Vanderpump would ever try to defend the tragically unclassy Ms. Glanville – and apparently Lisa shares my disappointment! In her latest Bravo blog, Lisa admits this is the episode where the tide turned and she started realizing that wait – there's no friends here, only big bad biatches wanting to take me down with a hair flip and a smile!
"Oh dear! That is all I want to say really! Could we just leave it at that?" Lisa begins. Don't we wish… Except we can't, unfortunately.
Referring to Brandi, Lisa is shocked she chose to reveal so many sexual tidbits. Choking anyone? "I am not particularly interested in the two finger maneuver that will be explained in her book. After 31 years of marriage I probably have a few maneuvers of my own I could share," Lisa teases.
But on a serious note, "It's hard to understand this constant need to shock. Her admission of indulging in cocaine, nudity, of being choked? Calling yourself a whore? What message does that send?"
