Joining a reality show is often like opening Pandora’s Box. And Natalie Guercio has learned this first hand! She hasn’t had an easy time since joining Mob Wives – she’s fought with co-stars, had her boyfriend’s face slashed, and her personal life and mothering insulted. Now Natalie admits she might be done with the show, but she does share that the show has some positives.
One of the biggest struggles for Natalie, aside from dealing with her standoffish co-stars, was the preconceived notions people had about her, but luckily she was bolstered by hometown support. “A lot of people at home they’re happy for me, because it’s somebody from their hometown that made it on TV,” she shares.
Natalie, who moved from Philly to Staten Island to participate in Mob Wives, says even getting an apartment willing to allow filming was a challenge! “They didn’t want us there. They didn’t want the cameras there,” she recounts. “They would Google the show, they would Google me and it’s like, what the hell – it’s like a job! There’s a law in New York you can’t hold somebody accountable for their legal paying job.”
Brandi Glanville. Hmmm… what to say about Brandi Glanville. Sometimes I think there’s nothing left to say, but then Brandi says more stuff, and then naturally I have to counter that. SO – here goes another round.
On Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills, Brandi has found herself in the crosshairs (see what I did there – “hairs”) between Kim “Rambles” Richards, Rambles’ addiction, and Kyle Richards. It’s not a pretty place to be, but Brandi apparently relishes it. Didn’t Eileen say Brandi thrives on conflict? Sounds about right! So let’s breakdown what Brandi has to say about this week’s episode.
First of all, Brandi calls everyone out for labeling Kim as an addict like it’s a bad thing. Has Intervention taught you people nothing?! “Addiction is not a negative label, and it’s not an insult. It’s being used by some people to label others in a negative light, which I find distasteful and shameful,” Brandi asserts.
After this week’s dramatic episode in which Holly believed Abby Lee Miller tried to shatter Nia’s dreams, she emotionally told cameras, “I cannot take this anymore. Not only do I deserve better, that little girl deserves better. She is a vicious and nasty, vile woman … That woman is insane! She’s crazy!” Holly continued to call out Abby on twitter – and she makes one thing clear: she is NOT backing down!
Nia has since recorded a single “Star In Your Own Life” with Aubrey O’Day (Celebrity Apprentice alum!) which Abby felt was the work of a traitor. In response she tried to sabotage Nia’s opportunity to record with Aubrey by blaming HOLLY’s behavior. Luckily, Aubrey did not take the bait.
Jax Taylor is not a fan of Kristen Doute, even though he was willing to sleep with her. Twice. But c’mon, people make mistakes, right?! Jax shares that not only is Kristen a manipulative nightmare, who is using James Kennedy, but that she ruined Scheana Marie‘s wedding!
Jax says the scene where Tom Sandoval confronts James about Kristen’s sneaky behavior made him “really feel bad for the guy” because he is so clearly being used by Kristen. “He’s a young kid who likes this girl and trying everything in his power to have a relationship with her, when she’s still pining over Tom,” the VanderpumpRules star says.
Stevie J (aka Steven Jordan) returned to court yesterday hoping he could convince a judge that he’s not guilty of remiss child support payments! The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star pled “Not Guilty” following an indictment for owing more than $1.1 million in unpaid support, and insists he does pay – but it’s being spent it faster than he makes it!
Stevie’s case is being tried in federal court, instead of state court as is the norm in family proceedings. “There is a history in this case of the failure of Family Court to address this successfully,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew DeFilippis explained, calling the federal court a “last resort” due to the extreme dollar amount of what Stevie owes and the lack of suitable resolution in state court due to filing errors.
Above, Stevie outside court, he captioned the photo: “My day 1 support system! @stefateaser @thebaddestputa1 @mcl_pr #The DevilIsALiar #lhhatl #TheJordans”
We pick up at Kyle Richards’ gay singles mixer and let me tell you, if there is one thing that unified the gays in that room it’s that they were all: “HOLLA we never have to end up tied to one of these crazy broads!” Then they retreated to a corner, made good use of the free drinks, and watched the single almond dinner show, because as we learned last night women of Beverly Hills think indulging in a hot dog shared three ways is a treat.
Kyle wants Brandi and Kim Richards to leave – obviously because they have sucked the air out of a party already about dry spells – but Kim just sits at some table in the mood-glow lighting like, ‘I don’t want to leave it’s my by-proxy party cause Kyle is my sister and I can ruin it if I want to!’ Brandi hauls her out, after reminding her that Kyle is not her sister, which jerks Kim to life, cause – Brand is right!!! Huh?
Outside Kim complains that Kyle was trying to “force” Brandi to spill secrets about her life and wanted to embarrass her. Oh, and Kyle is to blame for everything. Brandi and Kim are a toxic mess.
“Remember not so long ago when some of you were asking when Season 5 was going to really get the Crazy Train in motion? Well, that Crazy Train is moving full force through Beverly Hills, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon,” Lisa reflects.
“There are times when I’m enjoying the ride, times when I’m pissed off, and times when I’m just plain dumbfounded by what’s going on,” Lisa admits. “The bottom line is, I’m always looking for the best way to deal with what comes my way.”
