Teresa And Joe Giudice Court Appearance

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. 

Below we give a rundown on the course of the day and what led to the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars’ sentences.

They have been dubbed the ‘Fakest Family In America and now we have proof that not only are the Kardashians fake but their reality shows are also phony and staged!

While a new episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New York aired last Sunday, Kim Kardashian’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, made the following cryptic tweet — “I can’t wait for the truth to come out! People will be surprised or maybe they won’t. #FCC.” This had many wondering what Kris could have been referring to and folks, I believe we have cracked the code.

The photos you’re seeing above of Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner were taken on December 6, 2011. The photo agency which snapped the pics stated Kim and Kris were leaving a studio in Los Angeles.

Does Kim outfit look familiar? It should because Kim is sporting the same exact outfit, same hairstyle and same makeup as she did in a scene that aired on KKTNY last Sunday which according to E! was filmed in Dubai… in October… weeks before Kim pulled the plug on her marriage.

In the scene, Kim tries to garner sympathy appear remorseful as she tells her mom she is having marital issues with hubby Kris. There’s only one problem folks: Kim filed for divorce on October 31 and it appears that “Dubai” scene was actually taped in Los Angeles on Dec. 6. Still having doubts? Well, feel free to check out the outfit Kris’ assistant is carrying behind her. Ding ding ding! It’s the SAME “Dubai” outfit plus Kris is still wearing the same earrings.

Wowzers. So this proves the Kardashians’ shows are as phony as the Kardashians. Furthermore, Kim and Kris actually filmed this scene last month to not only try to fool their audience, but to also try to make Kim a victim. Unfortunately for Kris Humphries, he didn’t get a chance to go back and film phony scenes to help his image.

KHLOE KARDASHIAN’S STEPMOMS SAY SHE’S NOT A REAL KARDASHIAN!

Even before we were able to put two and two together with these images many were already doubting the authenticity of this “heart to heart” scene between Kim and mom Kris.

For starters, TheImproper blog via Perez Hilton points out that in the scene:

– Windows are totally blacked out

– No visible lights and the scene has low lighting

– Scene seems contrived, and could have been staged to gain sympathy for Kim

It gets even better as two body language experts for the HollywoodLife blog stated the scene was fake based on the body language and the reaction of Kris to Kim’s bombshell about her marital issues.

“[This seems] completely phony, staged and emotionless for someone who is not happy about a marriage,” Dr. Lillian Glass told the HollywoodLife. “Plus, Kris’ dialogue is just that like of a bad actress giving bad dialogue. There is too much pause time between the answers and her reaction shows no surprise and a matter of factness monotone — much like Kim’s indicative non-genuineness.”

Also, raising a red flag was Kris’ reaction to her daughter’s bad news. “She is smiling while her daughter is sharing this terrible news,” says body language expert Patti Wood. “This is not normal. She isn’t leaning toward Kim to show her support or trying to comfort her in any way.”

Still need more proof that the above photo of Kim was taken in December? UsWeekly did a story about Kim and that photo of her on December 7. The story also states Kim was snapped leaving a studio in LA on Dec. 6.

The actual clip of Kim and Kris’ phony heart to heart is below.

As for Kris Humphries, his family and friends have always insisted the show was fake and scripted including scenes which demonstrate Kris being a jerk or villain. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, told Life & Style in November. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”

To close out this story, SHAME on the Kardashians and SHAME on E!. It’s one thing to make a reality show and kind of create scenarios to make it more interesting, but to actually go back and act out FAKE scenes months after the fact is a new low. No word yet on how the Kardashians and E! will try to defend this.

Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is probably used to being questioned about her weight by now, after all she did receive some criticism for dropping her baby weight too quickly a year ago. However it is her most recent appearance at a Bravo event this week that is now causing a bit of a stir.

Less than a day after we posted photos of Bethenny, 40, attending Bravo’s Upfront party, a ton of the post comments seem to be about her startlingly thin appearance. While Bethenny has appeared skinner in recent months, her latest appearance seems to be her thinnest yet. Below are some of the comments posted by our readers, most of whom are her fans –

  • “She does look a bit too skinny, but she is a busy woman.” – Real Moe
  • “Love Bethenny, and hope she reads this because she is looking seriously anorexic, and it is not at all attractive. She doesn’t look fresh and healthy. She’s looking worn and old. Skinny girl needs to strive for healthy girl.” – Michelle
  • “Bethenny is one of my favorites…yet she does like too thin…wonder if she is burning the candle at both ends.” – Jada Murray
  • “Bethenny looks really thin. Almost anorexic. Hope she’s taking care of herself, she’s a mommy now.” – Kari
  • “Bethenny is way, way, way too thin.” – MamaG
  • “I love Bethenny but….she is way too thin!” – Jackie

Those are just a few. Bethenny, who has penned best selling books about weight loss, has always been open about her past weight struggles. In fact, she revealed to UsWeekly back in February that she was once obsessed with dieting.

“I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” she said. “Bingeing and then fasting or starving. Forbidding everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down 5 pounds every single day, to the extremes. My metabolism was totally wrecked.”

As stated in some of the above comments, Bethenny does have a busy career and is currently on a book tour in addition to being a mom. Here’s to hoping all is well with Bethenny. Below are some more photos of Bethenny before and after.

Like mother, like daughter…

Just a few days before the Real Housewives of Miami is set to debut on Bravo, E! News has uncovered mugshots of housewife Marysol Patton, and her mother Elsa Patton.

Their offenses? They were both arrested for DUIs in 2010 on separate occasions. A spokeswoman for the Florida State Attorney’s Office tells E! News that the younger Patton, Marysol — a Miami-based publicist, was arrested in January 2010 on suspicion of drunken driving.

Marysol ultimately struck a deal with prosecutors, which had her pleading no contest to a lesser charge of reckless driving to avoid jail time. She was fined $1,000 plus $581 in court costs.

As for Mama Patton, who might or might not have had many injectables to the face, she was busted for her DUI last October. E! states the 76-year-old’s arrest details are scarce, as the case ended up being dismissed on Dec. 6 when her arresting officer failed to show up to court to testify.

Oh yeah, the Real Housewives of Miami premieres February 22 on Bravo at 10/9c.

A day after the shocking report by the Hollywood Reporter (a very reputable media outlet) revealed the Kardashian clan earned an astonishing $65 million in 2010, we now have more details on just how the Keeping Up With The Kardashians family earned that amount.

We reported yesterday that Kim charges as much as $25,000 to tweet about a product or company, while commanding a personal appearance fee of $100,000 to $250,000 per event, and demanding up to $1 million internationally. Below are more detailed earnings of the Kardashians –

– The family splits a six-figure paycheck per E! episode. However, while the show might provide a steady paycheck, it serves a larger purpose of being a marketing platform for their endorsements and best-selling products, which include book, fragrance and clothing lines. Example, “Kourtney & Khloé Take Miami,” focused on the opening of a Florida outpost of their clothing store, Dash.

Kim is rumored to have signed a seven-figure deal with a Las Vegas club owner for a handful of 2011 appearances. (Kris will not confirm.) “Kim sells,” a nightlife source says. Kim, who now has over 6 million followers on twitter tells THR, “I have a blog that has 40 million hits a month.”

Kourtney sold her 2009 pregnancy news to Life & Style magazine for a cool $300,000! The deal included multiple stories: the pregnancy announcement, sex of the baby, birth announcement, first baby photos and body-after-baby reveal. (Life & Style declined comment.)

Khloé and husband Lamar Odom scored close to $300,000 from OK! magazine for their wedding photos. Kris had everything from the Lehr & Black custom invitations to Khloé’s 9-carat engagement ring “donated” for the wedding, promising the vendors massive product promotion that would come from the media circus surrounding the wedding. In the event that an item wasn’t gifted, E!, it is believed, picked up the tab (E! declined comment).

– Certain paparazzi agencies have agreements with the family to stage photos, sell them and split the profits. Example – Kourtney and Scott Disick recently earned $7,500 for an afternoon laying poolside in Cancun.

– The Kardashian Kard, a prepaid credit card the sisters launched in November, gave them $3 for every card activated or sold, 25 percent of fees, a $75,000 advance on royalties and a $37,000 signing bonus. However, Kris quietly terminated the agreement when then-Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal complained the card had hidden predatory fees. The card’s issuer is now suing the family for $75 million.

To round up the interview with THR, Momager/Pimp Kris Jenner reveals the family has no plans of slowing down. “My fantasy is to have ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians,‘ season 26,” Kris, 55, tells THR. “Who knew it would be this profitable? I should have had more kids.

And believe it or not, Kris reveals she worries about overexposing the family. “We definitely worry about overexposure. We never want to get to a place where people are thinking, ‘Enough is enough.’ ” We take it Kris does not read “the blogs”

So teens, the moral of this story is to stay in school, and with hard work, you too can build a $65 million fortune. Oh, who are we kidding? Feel free to purchase a camcorder, find yourself a D-list singer and have at it! We kid, we kid… we think. Though we do have to wonder if going public with a story like this is good PR for the family, which has started to receive major backlash and criticism from the public in recent weeks.

TELL US – ARE YOU SHOCKED BY THE AMOUNT THE KARDASHIANS EARNED & HOW THEY EARNED IT? HOW DO YOU REALLY FEEL ABOUT A FAMILY “WITH NO TALENT” EARNING SUCH A FORTUNE?
