We're sorry to interrupt your Friday with something so somber, but we just can't ignore what's happening over in Connecticut. We can't even attempt to wrap our minds around this horrific act of violence on innocent people.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and loved ones of those affected by today's tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown. We also wanted you guys to have a place to talk and react as these unfathomable events continue to unfold.
The reality stars are Tweeting out their shock and sadness, too. We give them grief, but when things get "real", they are able to stop trying to nab the spotlight and pause to focus on what's REALLY important in the world.
The History Channel's Pawn Stars is being sued for a whopping $5 million!
The talent agency Venture IAB Inc. signed Richard "Rick" Harrison, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison, Richard "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Austin "Chumlee" Russell as clients in 2007 and again in 2009.
According to the talent agency, they played a part in the deal that led to Pawn Stars, which premiered July 19, 2009 on History.
However, just six months later, the stars of Pawn Stars terminated their contracts with Venture IAB after alegedly being influenced by two Pawn Stars execs, Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc, to sign with a friend of theirs, Michael Camacho.
I know, I know, this could describe almost every single one of the reality TV stars of late, right?! Being rich seems to be the exception and not the rule. This little blind item tidbit has to do with a more up and coming Housewife reality TV star and that's all we can say about that.
The alleged dirt:
"Mrs. X has several kids from (possibly) two different baby daddies and there may be another on the way. Her husband, who has been touted as a "very wealthy man" doesn't quite live up to that title (when do they ever?!). His profession is not what it has been presented as. He is actually a general laborer of sorts. Considering that the application process for many reality shows include a full and lengthy questionnaire on financial details, it's safe to assume they may have fudged the numbers a bit – or a lot. They borrow luxury brand items to make it seem like they have the best of the best – including clothing. The show may have a hot scandal on its hands since he reportedly has wandering hands and she and the kids spend a lot of time at a friend's house because of it."
Remember that Blind Items are more about the fun of the guessing game. Although, the truth does tend to come out eventually….
The teens on last night's Sister Wives got a bit of a reality check. Maddie, Logan, and Aspyn are volunteering for an organization that helps families who want to leave the polygamist lifestyle. They are traveling back to Utah to paint a house for a family to move into after leaving the LDS community. Kody Brown and his hair hope that Aspyn will remember that plural marriage is a good thing. Christine isn't on board with this trip because she wonders if there are times when people are are "helped" when they really don't want to necessarily leave.
Kody and the wives are optimistic that the teens will remember how different their family is from the families they are about to see. Maddie can't fathom the abuse that some people in plural marriages suffer, and Aspyn is worried that she won't be able to relate to the victims. Right away they meet a polygamist escapee Kollene who readily admits she wants to take out some of her anger on the Browns. Kody is upset that Warren Jeffs has painted his lifestyle in such a bad light.
