Former reality star and daughter of infamous mob boss, Victoria Gotti, is now facing foreclosure on her Long Island estate.
A New York State Appellate Court ruling may cost Victoria Gotti her Long Island mansion – the five-bedroom, 5½-bath white brick residence might be familiar to viewers of her former reality show – Growing Up Gotti.
“I’m bitter,” the daughter of late Mob boss John Gottisaid. “The house, all the marital assets, are part of a divorce package [from ex-husband, Carmine Agnello], I have never seen yet.” According to reports, Gotti, 46, owes $650,000 to her lender. As the so-called Mafia princess tells the paper, “This should finally put to rest all the government lies and rumors that I have $200 million buried in my backyard.”
Victoria has however vowed to save her home speaking outside Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday, “I’m never going to lose the house – trust me. The only way I’m leaving is selling it, and we wanted out of there, anyway.”
The I love money 2 finale ended with Flavor of Love 3 alum Myammee winning the final prize of $250,000. Tailor Made came in a close second with IT coming in a very distant 3rd. Myammee talks to VH1 in the interview below about what it feels like to win, her plans for the money, and her feelings towards Ice & Prancer.
What was key to your success?
I came not to make any friends (even though I did). I came to try and win the money the best I could. And I did what I had to do to get it done, in all areas. Of course, I had a couple people around me motivating me to keep going even though I wanted to quit and say f*** it. Tailor Made kept me there.
There were also people there who were attempting to do the opposite. Any regrets that you grabbed Buckwild’s face?
No, because where I’m from, grabbing somebody’s face is way worse than punching somebody in the face. At home they were like, “Damn, I would’ve told you to just punch me in the face before you did that.”
You cried a lot, which was surprising. Were any of those tears fake?
No tears were fake.
Not even when you were crying like, “Oh Ice!”
Even though the blog said it was fake, no, it was not fake. I felt real bad because I raised my hand for her and she didn’t do the same. Like, “Damn I just voted for you. You’re not gonna vote for me?” So I cried a lot when she left and felt like it was my fault. She is still my girl to this day and she kind of forgave me about it because she understood it was a game.
Is she your main dog from the show?
She is the only person I still get in contact to this day with. And she is just a cool girl. She just understood my situation. Even though it was very sad…like I really cried, for real. Like seriously.
Why did you clash with with Saaphyri and Buckwild so hard?
Saaphyri was jealous. Look at her, look at me. Put us side by side. There’s no comparison. She was so into It, and she knew how he was flirting with everybody in the house. Baby, I don’t want It. It? What can I do with him? Nothing. I guess she was jealous of the fact that we were cool.
Were you interested in anybody?
No. Craig was kinda cute, but the dudes in the house were wack. They’re not my type. Whiteboy, if he was on this season, you probably woulda seen something go down.
That’s very Megan of you, just like the lingerie.
Oh my God. Do not start with this girl and this lingerie! First of all, let me talk about Whiteboy. Whiteboy’s from Miami, so I’m used to that type of swag, anyway. Second of all, me like her? I would never be. I wore lingerie on Flavor of Love 3 during the second episode. I didn’t know we could walk around in it till I saw her ass on the TV! I’m like, if they can let her walk around in the bathing suit, they can let me walk around in my damn lingerie. That’s what I was trying to say, but then everyone took it and twisted it, like, “Oh, you tryin’ to be like Megan.” I would never try to be like anybody. I’m me. Myammee is always Myamee.
Do you like Megan?
She’s cool. I don’t have anything against her because I don’t know her. But I’m not trying to be like her. We’re two different markets. Like: no.
What about Becky?
I don’t even want to discuss her. She’s like nothing. I don’t even see her. Who is that?
On the other hand, you were uncommonly tight with Tailor Made.
He was kinda like my big brother in the house. He kept me grounded. I kept him grounded, fashionably right. I got mad love for him.
Your alliance took you to the end.
It was really hard to believe that it was going to do that, because the “loudmouths” were crazy. But the good thing about them is that they talked so much that they revealed too much. We laid back and didn’t talk too much. They had no idea what we were thinking.
Any regrets when it comes to your eliminations?
No regrets. I’m happy I got rid of Prancer, I’m happy I got rid of 20. I went against Tailor Made and It at the end. If I would have kept one of those other people, I probably wouldn’t have won or it would have been a greater challenge.
You eliminated Prancer because she was a threat, right?
Yeah. I mean, I think I still could have taken her, but I thought I owed Tailor Made to stay there. I was going off my emotions and something inside said, “What are you doing? Keep Prancer here.” But I thought that since he kept me here, he deserved a chance to try to win. I knew if I was meant to win, I would.

The woman in the alleged cheating scandal involving Jon Gesslin of Jon & Kate Plus 8 is speaking out, denying all cheating allegations.
Deanna Hummel, 23, tells PEOPLE, “We’re just friends. It’s absurd that anyone would think otherwise.” Deanna claims she met Jon through a mutual friend months ago, and the two have been hanging out – as part of a group of friends, not as couple. She goes on to claim the social outings have included visits to each other’s houses and nights out on the town, but always with others there, and it’s always all innocent.
She also want on to say the above photo of her leaving a club with Jon was being misinterpreted, “He just got this new car and I wanted to drive it. I’m into cars,” she says. “We all have guy and girl friends. Because of who he is, it gets portrayed the wrong way, and it’s unfair to him and his family.”
Jon released a statement last week after the photo was released saying he show “poor judgement.” Gee you don’t say Jon. It seems rather interesting though that Jon’s wife, Kate has yet to release any sort of statement since this scandal broke out.
The cheating allegations are not going away anytime soon for Jon Gosselin as the father of 8 was caught leaving a club at 2:00 am with another woman, not wearing his wedding ring. All this while his wife Kate was 2,000 miles away, promoting her book Eight Little Faces in Bellevue, Washington.
USWeekly reports that Jon arrived at the club at 11:20 p.m. and by 2 a.m. “could barely walk” as he exited the less-public back entrance of Legends Lounge — near the family’s $1.3-million home in Wernersville, Pennsylvania — on April 18.
Jon was alledgedly overheard yelling, “Hey, babe! Babe! Give me my jacket!” before climbing into his Nissan Nismo. As cameras began snapping, he panicked, urging his female friend to “get in the car!” before speeding off hastily — without even turning on the headlights.
Jon has however denied this cheating allegation in his statement to USWeekly stating, “I went to Legends to speak to the owner. A friend of mine wanted to check out my car, so I let her drive it to her car. Yes, I have female friends — but that is all she is. I’m not going to end my friendships just because I’m on TV.”
We can be sure to expect some more berating of Jon by Kate in the next season of the show.
In what looks to be nothing short of a freak show, The Hills stars Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag met up with ousted Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich this week in LA to take promo pictures for NBC’s new reality show – I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here!
The attention whoring reality show couple have signed up to appear on the new reality show scheduled to air this summer. Ex-Governor Rod Blagojevich was also signed on for the show, but dropped out when a judge ruled earlier this week that he is not allowed to leave the country while still under investigation. He however for some reason still decided to fly out to LA to take promo pictures.
The show is set to premiere on NBC on June 1. It will involve dropping 10 celebrities into a Costa Rican jungle to face challenges and elimination.
The other “celebrities” signed on for the show include -
BET’s College Hill South Beach brought in the drama with the first episode, and that trend seems to be never ending unfortunately with Kyle who is arguably the most hated and worst cast member in the show’s history.
So last week’s episode ended with Kyle deciding for no reason at all to be a bully to the newest cast member Kay. What makes this worse is his idiot audience (Tiffany, Paul, Chris & sometimes Milan) who for some strange reason find his crude and disgusting behavior “funny.” There’s a saying that goes along the lines of the only thing worse than a Bully is his audience.
So we get into this week’s episode and Kyle continues to PMS, deciding to up his ante in his attacks on both Kay and Allison. I was truly in shock, angry, and disgusted with the things he was saying to both women. What made me angrier was the fact that none of the other roommates seemed to stand up for Kay with the exception of Allison.
This “man” goes on to threaten Allison by saying he wants to fight her, and beat her up. Gay or not gay, did Kyle forget he was still a male? Once again, none of the other punks and cowards, mostly Paul and Chris stepped in to defend Allison. Kyle goes on to make some very shameful remarks regarding Allison who is openly bisexual.
We see Kyle break down at the end of the episode admitting to being a bully and showing some remorse for his mean behavior, but that is not enough for me. I understand that he might be battling some emotional issues but his behavior on this show is simply shameful.
I would like to end this by giving kudos to Allison for sticking up for both Kay and herself. The other roommates with the exception of Brandon are nothing but punks, cowards and followers. Paul and Chris need to grow a pair, and oh yeah, it’s time for Chris to kick down that closet door, he’s not fooling anyone.
