Kim Zolciak‘s family has gone through a lot of changes on reality TV. And through it all Kim’s doggie Chanel has been there. Yesterday Kim revealed that the family made the agonizing decision to put Chanel to sleep.
“One of the hardest days of my life today! We had to put our ‘little fur ball’ Chanel down. We had her almost 12 yrs! My heart is so broken,” the Don’t Be Tardy star tweeted.
Oh Teresa Giudice… remember when you promised to be a better person? And to learn from your mistakes through this whole legal tribulation? Well, ummm… we’re still waiting! Teresa has parted ways with her crisis PR manager Wendy Feldman after she submitted a letter to Judge Salas requesting Danbury Federal Prison to serve her 15 months.
“Sadly, my time with Teresa and has come to an end,” Wendy said in a statement. “My client relationships are very important to me, however today’s filing regarding Teresa’s Bureau of Prisons designation request was not done with my knowledge or input.”
According to Wendy the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star worked with someone else – Juicy?! – to submit a letter to the judge asking that she be placed at Danbury in Connecticut, where Piper Kerman the author of Orange Is The New Black served her time. Good lord – Teresa probably thinks of herself as the new Piper!
LuAnn will be hosting a glamorous yard sale next weekend where luxury seekers can buy items personally touched by The Countess – and several of your other favorite RHONY stars. I have my eye on Ramona Singer‘s used pinot glasses!
LuAnngot $8 million for her glamorous 6,5000 square-foot Hamptons retreat which she sold to developer Joe Farrell. He plans to tear it down to build a property double that size (yuck) so LuAnn is selling off all the fixtures – why let it go to waste?!
Jillian Michaels famously left The Biggest Loser because she felt the show had taken a negative turn and destroyed her reputation as a health and wellness advocate in favor of promoting dramatic weightless results. But Jillian hasn’t left reality TV behind for good – she’s embarking on her own solo show and she’s also rebranding herself after taking a public beating.
In an effort to reestablish her image after her merry-go-round relationship with the Biggest Loser, Jillian now reveals a softer approach – and a more down-to-earth one. Like “hell no!” she doesn’t like to exercise, “I watch the clock every minute,” the personal trainer admits.
“People assume that I think I’m better than that show. I do not. Also, there’s a misconception that I keep leaving,” Jillian explains. “On season three, I was fired. On season 11, I asked for time off to start a family. In this go-round, it was a mutual decision. I wanted to make some creative changes, but I was not a producer. I need some control in something with my name attached to it.”
It turns out when Kim told Poison Gorga she runs with the big the boys, she wasn’t lying – her man is New Jersey’s infamous “King of Con” Thomas Giacomaro! Thomas just got out of prison after serving time for bilking investors out of $73 million dollars! And now he’s ready for the next phase: working on a book, movie deal and television show about his legendary life. “Hundreds of millions of dollars went through my hands,” Thomas bragged. “It makes ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ look like he stole a pocketbook.”
I don’t mean to be negative but compared to previous seasons this one was kind of weak sauce, no? I mean, Fabellini has more sparkle than last night’s finale did. And dare I say it, it’s far less tacky!
Really - what could possibly be more tacky than having your boobs, butt, and midriff hangout at a charity fashion show for children with cancer?! Oh wait – trying to start a fight at one… while your boobs threaten to pop out of your Posche clearance special gown! When you get a reputation for running out of stores without paying for the clothes, I suppose you get stuck with the Posche end of the season leftover sale! Pass the Dunkin’ Donuts – the twins and their DDs are out to play.
It’s also the first time Bravo has recycled a Housewife by bringing Dina Manzo back from the dead as an official Housewife. And poor Dina – what a mistake that seems like it was for our zen princess! Tonight Dina will try to inject a little positivity into the show when she hosts a Project Ladybug fashion show to raise money for children with cancer.
But SOME PEOPLE – some people like the Troublemint Trashbag Twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano decide to cause trouble when the confront Teresa at the event because they blame her for a little rumor that’s been spreading around. A little rumor started by Victoria Gotti who revealed that Rino, Teressssssa’s hubby, slept with his mother-in-law, Teresssssssa’s mama! That’s gotta make for an awkward game of Family Feud!
“So, you ask? Why? Why do I share my story? Good question…” For Amber there really isn’t any other option than to share the true story of her life – and that, of course, includes cancer. And with a platform like RHONJ and Bravo to educate people, it turns out that is why Amber continues to speak out about The Cancer.
