Now that recent ‘get out of jail, free’ card holder Teresa Giudice is back in the bosom of her family after spending nearly a year in lock-down on fraud charges, inquiring minds want to know, has she been gallivanting around town? Well the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is under house arrest, spent intimate time with her four daughters, hubby Joe and extended family members over the holiday and now, she is reportedly trying to get her outside life back on track.
Whenever Teresa wants to leave her home, she must first have the Bureau of Prisons sign off on the request according to a source who spoke to People Magazine. “She asks permission to go places. The probation officer then gives her the parameters of that. He will ask her which stores she is going to and then says, ‘You can go from this time to this time.’ She can go to work, go to the doctor or go see her lawyer – all with the officer’s permission.” Reportedly, if Teresa needs to travel to New York City for RHONJ, she can, as long as the trip is work-related. However, if she wants to travel elsewhere, she’ll have to put the brakes on those plans, until after her house arrest ends on February 5 of next year.
Reality star alum and actress NeNe Leakeswill get to add some fabulosity to this year’s NBC-TV’s annual new year’s eve festivities. The diva will hobnob with the likes of Carson Daly as part of a comedy panel he hosts, “New Year’s Eve With Carson Daly” that will take place at New York City’s famed Times Square according to US Weekly.
NeNe, who after seven seasons, left the reality show that helped put her name up in lights, “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” grew tired of the negativity that seemed to take over the show. While Nene was a ‘housewife’ and thereafter, she has always maintained a pretty hectic career schedule. She had a recurrent role on the defunct sitcom “Glee,” was a series regular on NBC-TV’s “The New Normal,” acted in a couple of Broadway productions, was a contestant on “Dancing With the Stars,” and will even be a judge on the upcoming ABC-TV revival 1950’s game show “To Tell the Truth.” In addition to performing, NeNe also manages to oversee her fashion line, The Nene Leakes Collection for the Home Shopping Network and there is also a jewelry line as well.
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta could-have-been-regular cast memberAmiyah Scott was supposed to be a fixture on the Bravo hit reality show but was reportedly, so put off by the producer’s antics, she called it quits. Despite all of the show’s fanfare and praise for featuring Amiyah, as its first transgender cast member in the franchise, she refused to be the stereotype that the show’s producers wanted her to portray according to TMZ.
Amiyah had actually made the one month of filming mark on RHOA. When the show’s plots smacked of devious underpinnings like producers wanting to sexualize Amiyah and have her act “like a vixen” which was not in her character, her patience grew thin. The news outletthen claims, the actress went on to reveal how producers wanted to make her look like the “bitch of the cast,” when she instead strived to become a transgender role model.
Jeff Lewis and Vicki Gunvalson both know a little bit about Flipping Out! They’ve also both been on reality TV since Bravo was a channel people were still trying to find in their expanded cable package. So, they know a thing or two about how this game works, and how to work it when the chips are down. This begs the question: Are Andy Cohen’s OG’s joining forces now that Vicki’s future on the Real Housewives of Orange County has come under scrutiny?
RHOC served up an exhausting season of watching Vicki defend her lying sack o’ shizz boyfriend Brooks Ayers over his claims of “fighting cancer” – followed by Vicki claiming she was “duped! duped, I say!” when the truth (at least about Brooks faking his medical documents) came to light. As a result, Vicki has some serious ground to make up with viewers who claim she is also a liar. But can Vicki’s besmirched reputation ever be restored to its former bed-wetting glory?
Former resident bad boy and Kourtney Kardashian’s baby daddy, Scott Disick, is seemingly not a welcomed guest at the famed family’s abode. According to an unnamed family insider who spoke to New York Post’s Page Six, Scott was not present and accounted for at the Kardashian clan’s much-talked-about Christmas party.
As a matter of fact, Scott’s name is reportedly not even uttered by the Kardashians which can’t be a good sign. According to the insider, “When he’s not there, no one’s thinking about Scott. They literally don’t talk about him. Everyone has their whole thing going on . . . I don’t think anyone cares if [Scott and Kourtney] are together or not.”
Recording and reality star husband and wife duo, T.I. and Tiny Harris had a merry Christmas indeed! The ride or die couple took to Instagram on the joyous holiday to announce via video that their “T.I. & Tiny:The Family Hustle” clan was about to expand, Tiny is pregnant!

“Merry Christmas, everybody. Thank you to my family for my wonderful gifts. Thank you to my husband for the beautiful chain…and these wonderful earrings,” then revealing her “tiny” baby bump with a bow on it she continued, “but most of all thank you for our new heir to the throne, the best Christmas gift you could give me, ever.”
Phaedra Parks isn’t afraid of putting self-proclaimed new queen of delusion bee Kenya Moore on blast, and she spent some time in her blog this week doing just that! Right or wrong, Phaedra is still convinced that Kenya’s “fears and poor communication skills” turned a sticky situation into an all-out brawl in Miami. The Real Housewives of Atlanta lawyer also discusses her thoughts on the plight of black men – and specifically black youth – in this country, and why the Miami incident sparked conversation about deeper issues.
Phaedra reflects on the Miami scene: “Everything happened very fast. One moment we were all having fun and in a split second things took a disastrous turn. Initially, I was shocked and stunned, but when I saw Tammy [McCall-Browning] on the ground, I sprung into EMT mode and went to help her. I took her pulse, checked her breathing, and determined she did not need CPR, so I just stayed by her side until the ambulance arrived. It could have been much worse.”
