Instead the ladies joined Andy Cohen in New York yesterday, where all were present and accounted for – even Teresa! Teresa arrived at the taping, dressed casually, and shared that she’s doing “OK” in the wake of her sentencing for bankruptcy fraud, wire fraud, and mail fraud. Joe Giudice also attended the reunion filming, but arrived separately from Teresa.
Some options include putting filming for season 7 on long hiatus until Teresa returns from prison. “It’s been done before,” an insider explains. “There was a point where `Real Housewives of New York’ was off the air for almost a year.” It’s fair to note however, that when the show return ratings were at an all-time low. Of course with the drama of Teresa re-enacting Orange Is The New Leopard Black, I doubt that will be the case with RHONJ!
Reality star Brooks Ayers, infamous for being the nefarious boyfriend of Vicki Gunvalson – and the subject of many a feud – just revealed that he has progressive stage 3 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
“My reality is that I have, once again, been diagnosed with a form of Non-Hodgkin lymphoma specifically diffuse large B cell lymphoma,” the Real Housewives Of Orange County star shared. Brooks was initially diagnosed in the fall of 2013. Interestingly this was never included in RHOC as a storyline – or even mentioned on the show.
Several car owners accused Mr. Khan of selling their automobiles on consignment, but then never relinquishing the cash – and in some cases the owners were still paying for car loans on vehicles that had been sold to new owners because Mr. Khan was not transferring the titles. Oops.
As a result of the investigation Emporio is now closed – and Khan has since been evicted from his showroom by his landlord for failure to pay $49,000 in rent! Good thing Melissa and Joe got those Bravo cameras there in time!
The Gorgas were reportedly trading the lease (or a discounted lease) of their Bentley in exchange for getting Bobby to appear on RHONJ.
Tameka seems conflicted over whether or not the show portrayed her accurately, admitting that while her “snarky personality” shined through, her day-to-day life wasn’t represented. “I feel like the show focuses a little more on the conflict between the five of us as opposed to what we really do on a day to day. That kind of feels disappointing,” she admits.
Responding to Kirk Frost‘s statements calling her crazy and a woman scored after her divorce, Tameka pretends Kirk doesn’t even exist. “Who?” she wonders. Oooohhh… icy, stonewalling, shade.”I really don’t know him. Let me just clear that up,” Tameka clarifies to VH1. “I was hoping that he was misquoted.”
Yesterday Teresa Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison, while her husband Joe Giudice received a 41 month sentence for federal fraud charges of bankruptcy fraud, mail fraud, and conspiracy to commit wire fraud. The Judge decided to give the couple staggered sentences allowing one of them to always be at home with their 4 daughters.
Teresa will begin serving her sentence first, on January 5th, 2015, so she will be able to spend the holidays with her daughters. Teresa and Joe owe $414,588 in restitution as a couple and each face two-years of supervised release following prison.
The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills is in the middle of filming and while some have reported that everyone is getting along just too well, there are, of course, exceptions to the rule. Exceptions like Brandi Glanville! The cast is currently on their cast trip in Amsterdam, where things are fraught with drama!
Lisa Vanderpump revealed that although this season is “better than last season” things are anything but easygoing! “I can’t say it is all plain sailing, that’s for sure. At it’s best, it is not an easy situation sometimes.”
Happy Sentencing Day! Before receiving their federal fraud sentence, Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice settled their bankruptcy – finally. But unfortunately the news is not good, the judge denied the bankruptcy discharge which mean the case is closed now, and it’s as if the couple never filed for for bankruptcy at all and must repay their debts the old-fashioned way!
