Jennifer Del Rio from 16 and Pregnant has fled her home state of Florida with her twins to get away from her children’s father. You may recall this happy couple from their episode when her then boyfriend Joshua Smith left her on the side of the road before speeding off with his children in the back seat. He’s a classy guy.
The now eighteen-year-old mother is now with her kids in Illinois, citing her ex’s abusive ways as her reasoning for getting the heck out of dodge. Both were arrested (at separate times) in 2011 alleging battery against the other, a claim Jennifer says is totally false.
“She’s a Johnson!” Shaunie gushed to Vh1, adding that everything about the day was perfect. As for the bride and groom they looked amazing according to Shaunie. Describing Chad’s outfit, Shaunie shares: “When he came down [the aisle], that boy was sharp! I’ve been talking about his outfit ever since I left. He look so good!”
Ocho sported a navy blue “rich looking suit” that was “tailored perfectly.” And his shoes even matched his outfit. Well, that’s success! “They went with that suit and that wedding,” a happy drunk Shaunie slurred announced.
Are you keeping up with the recent batch of couples from 16 & Pregnant? No? Well Georgia’s State Troopers are! Whitney Purvis’ baby daddy Weston Gosa was just arrested for driving under the influence…of alcohol and prescription drugs. All of this came to light after he wrecked his car. Glad to hear that the 23-year-old has learned some life lessons after his stint on MTV.
TMZ reports that Weston was charged with “felony possession of controlled substances, misdemeanor possession of drug-related objects, and DUI.” Police found the young father in possession of Lorcet and Xanax without a prescription, as well as a pipe with unknown residue in it. I really, really, really want to get on my soapbox about the teen moms–especially those who are televised–regarding how NOT hard it is to do the right thing. No judgement, but, seriously? A crashed DUI with pills involved? I wish TMZ could have shaken said Weston Gosa for me. Grow up, step up, be a man.
SHOCKED TO HEAR MORE 16 & PREGNANT DRAMA? WILL THESE KIDS EVER GET THERE STUFF TOGETHER?
Ok, it’s that time again! Reality Tea’s Booze ‘N Books Club! With zillions of reality stars – and new ones popping up every second – and each one with something to sell, we here at Reality Tea decided to test out some of these fetes of literary greatness. And what goes better with books that are badly written than cocktails? So we thought we’d try something fun and review some of these gems!
Each month Reality Tea will be reviewing both a book and a cocktail. Last month we kicked things off by reviewing Bethenny Frankel, the queen of reality star promotions and the inventor of the Bravo Home Shopping Network’s, new novel Skinnydipping and one of the umpteen Skinnygirl cocktails. We weren’t so impressed with Skinnygirl White Cranberry Cosmo, but the book – a little bit better. We invited our readers to participate in the fun by submitting some of their own reviews – and we got some good ones and some photos to match
This month, we’re reviewing Bravo’s other Home Shopping Network queen – the controversial Teresa Giudice. Teresa has turned lemons into well, money flavored lemonade and she is paying her bills (and hopefully her creditors) with her immense popularity and her old-school Italian recipes.
The Real Housewives of New Jerseystar’s newest cookbook – her third – is Fabulicous: Fast & Fit. On the NY Times Bestseller list for the third week in a row, the book advertises healthy alternatives to Italian recipes in 30 minutes or less. Teresa isn’t stopping there, she also has a bottled cocktail (I wonder where that idea came from? wink, wink) called Fabellini. Well, we hardworking girls at Reality Tea reviewed both and lemme tell you our jobs are really crappy.

Last night’s Survivor was just another cut-throat edition of boys against the girls, with the girls winning…as we always do. 🙂
At the merged Tikiano, Model Jay seems to be down with the ladies while Tarzan shares with Troyzan his fears about the gender breakdown. Troyzan knows he has an immunity idol, yet he reminds Tarzan that it’s still to be retrieved. The group goes to find tree-mail, but instead is met with a chalk board, some pegs and logs, and a letter which is not to be opened until everyone is together. The tribe must divide themselves into two teams and finish the intricate challenge. The winners will be rewarded with a boat ride and a barbeque festival…where do I sign up?
The group decides that the fairest course is to randomly draw names. The first team is Troy, Jay, Alicia, Kat, and Tarzan. The second team is Lief and the remaining ladies. Troyzan elects himself to be host of the game. Oh gracious…this is ladder ball, or ladder golf, or horse balls…regardless I have played this game multiple times on Sullivans’ Island. I am about as good at it as the castaways, which reads to be HORRIBLE. Somehow the “red” team wins, even though both groups had poor showings. Regardless, the red team is treated to an amazing feast.
If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice shocked viewers back in 2010 when it was revealed that they filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt. Shortly afterwards, the two were accused of bankruptcy fraud by their trustee John Sywilok, who accused them of concealing assets and hiding income. By the way, concealing assets just happens to be a federal crime.
In a move to likely avoid persecution, Joe first withdrew his bankruptcy bid back in September, after pleading the fifth amendment during questioning by the trustee.
Following Joe’s move the Giudices’ lawyer told PEOPLE magazine that Teresa would soon follow, stating she felt “vindicated” to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than go to jail have them discharged in bankruptcy court.
The NJ Star-Ledger is reporting that in addition to withdrawing her bankruptcy, Teresa has also settled the lawsuit by the trustee by acknowledging that she wishes to resolve Sywilok’s proceedings against her “without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without her making any further admissions.”
Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel stated back in September that Teresa was now making enough money to pay off her debts, while also adding that most of the debt in the bankruptcy belonged to Joe. Safe to say the system won this go around.
In other RHONJ news, Tre’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga recently revealed she is now selling T-shirts with some of her catch phrases written on them such as “Thank you Jesus” and “On Display.”
“We are selling a lot of “Thank you Jesus!” shirts of my website this week! Guess its for Christmas gifts! Send pics! Xo, melissagorga.co” tweeted Melissa last week. Pictures of those T-shirts are below!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA WITHDRAWING HER BANKRUPTCY BID? WOULD YOU BUY ONE OF MELISSA’S T-SHIRTS?
