Last night on Don't Be Tardy, the Biermann family celebrated Christmas and argued about traditions. See, Kim Zolciak's traditions include dropping thousands upon thousands on tacky Christmas decorations like she lives in the White House where as Kroy Biermann's traditions include embracing the true meaning of Christmas: family and quality time.
Eventually in a Bravo-tized version of The Christmas Carol, Wigenezer Scrooge realizes Christmas isn't about Cartier and $4000 diamond-studded Christmas trees with a LV logo, but about the people you love the most!
Things begin with Kim trying to convince us she's a young woman of 35 by getting Thermage, a laser face lift. At first I thought Kim must be getting vaginal rejuvenation because her skirt slit was so high she was borderline in need of a black modesty bar to hide the ladybits. I was wrong though – apparently one just wears really revealing clothing to the dermatologist!
Years after vacating the show that made her gold digging ways a household name, she has returned to Real Housewives of Orange County to stir up trouble and give Vicki Gunvalson a bad name. As if Vicki needed any help in that department!
Lauri claims to be defending her husband's honor over untrue information Vicki shared years ago that no one – unfortunately! – has heard. WHY?! Who is hiding this precious gossip from us? And in response Lauri accused Vicki of hauling a toothless Greek God back to the OC and having a three-way on an insurance trip. And I don't mean three-way phone call…
The prosecutor did not reveal what the new evidence is, but reportedly the Real Housewives of New Jersey star was captured ON CAMERA (and not by Bravo!) at the DMV in the process of obtaining the fraudulent license using his brother Pete's identification.
Joe maintains his innocence and his attorney has rejected several plea deals put forth by the prosecution insisting his client is being unfairly made an example of because of celebrity and will not serve actual jail time related to the incidents.
Yesterday Teresa Giudice wrote an open-letter to the tabloids lambasting them for making accusations about Jr. Mafia Jailbird Joe's alleged cheating ways. Proving that Stand By Your Man is on repeat on the iPod, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star insists there is no truth to the rumors and furthermore threatened to sue organizations making accusations!
Several media outlets – from the littlest to the hugest – have reported on Joe's purported adultery, a situation not helped by some seriously unflattering footage of him in Napa last season andJacqueline Laurita's accusations at the reunion. There's also been photos of Joe with other women, although nothing incriminating!
It's speculated that Teresa is attempting some damage control before a really juicy (pun intended) tabloid story emerges later this week that will contain further allegations and photographs of Joe in a compromising situation.
The latest in a string of bad financial news for the Real Housewives of New York star is that a U.S. Bankruptcy Judge has signed off on an agreement to escalate her bankruptcy and appoint a trustee.
Sonja has been attempting to liquidate several luxury multi-million dollar properties, including her NYC townhome, her Colorado ski home, and just recently a St. Tropez vacation home in an effort to repay a $7 million dollar debt related to a failed movie production deal.
The ratings did not disappoint! 2.84 Million people watched RHONJ in the original 8PM airing! That's impressive for a premiere. Ratings usually increase as the season progresses.
Ratings for seasons 3 & 4 of the show were steadily in the 2.6 million mark per episode with the season 4 reunion yanking in over 3.4 million gawkers. Everyone wanted to see Jacqueline Laurita lose it in person, apparently!
In her first blog of the new season she discusses reuninting her family and trying to work things out with Melissa Gorga. Perhaps the first step should be duct taping Juicy's mouth shut!
Chapter 1: On Why She Stopped Speaking To Poison & Melissa
After last season (which was not fun) and the horrible reunion, we all took a big break from each other. We didn't see each other for over a year. Not seeing my brother and his family was heartbreaking, but after what Joey and Melissa said at the reunion — that they were moving and didn't want to have anything to do with me or my kids — what could I do?
I had to respect their wishes and give them space. It broke my heart, but it was what they wanted. I just concentrated on my own family, on my girls, and prayed that they would find their way back to our family.
