Jill Zarin clearly has too much time on her hands – and clearly she has not taken former BFF Bethenny Frankel‘s advice to “Get a hobby!” (Which in case you didn’t know is one of my top reality TV insults of all time!) The former Real Housewives of New York star has repeatedly claimed she is relieved she was fired out of one corner of her mouth, while out of the other corner she advocates her fans let Bravo know they made a mistake in firing her. Clearly she has trouble letting go. So much trouble that she reportedly crashedLuAnn de Lesseps‘ premiere party!
Jill as made it known that she will not watch the show, but I suppose she’s changed her mind – after all she needs something to keep her name in the press as clearly Skweeze Couture isn’t doing it. Following last Monday’s episode featuring the mommy wars between Pinot Singer and Jill’s made-for-TV buddy LuAnn, Jill wrote a scathing blog posted to her website about the show and Ramona.
Among the comments Jill made, she implies that Ramona is an alcoholic which may just be the worst kept secret in reality television and mocked this season’s low ratings as a result of her being fired! Jill has since deleted the blog, citing that she was advised to “sleep on it” in a tweet. Well Reality Tea was able to procure a copy from one of our sleuthy readers!
Amber Portwood has officially relocated to her new home for the next five years. Just one week after the final season of Teen Mom began airing, Amber checked in to the Indiana state prison where she will begin to serve out her five year sentence.
TMZ learned that Amber was transported from the local jail she had been housed in to the Rockville Correctional Facility yesterday morning. Amber opted to serve out the remainder of her sentence instead of returning to the court ordered drug rehabilitation program, citing that she was so depressed it caused another suicide attempt.
I’m not sure about her logic, as I can’t really think of anything more depressing than spending the next couple years in prison, but there’s many aspects of Amber’s judgement I wholeheartedly question!
This is terribly sad and hopefully Amber’s life will turn around.
THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S DECISION TO SERVE OUT HER PRISON SENTENCE?
She’s been called a swindler, a grifter, and fraud. Taylor Armstrong of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is probably one of the most controversial women in the history of the franchise. Amid accusations of embezzlement and domestic violence, her husband Russell Armstrong committed suicide, leaving Taylor on the hook for all of his (their?) past shady dealings. Although many don’t buy her claims, Taylor insists she wasn’t a willing cohort to her husband’s crimes. She alleges that his threats of violence induced her to as she was told in regard to his business deals.
In one such deal, Russell and Taylor were accused of stealing money from investors of MyMedicalRecords.com (MMR). Once sued by the company, the couple was forced to disclose each investor who was defrauded. The case settled, with Russell paying the company $250,000. When MMR learned that the pair had neglected to name three investors, they sued again, with Russell killing himself two weeks later. Once again, MMR and Taylor have reached a settlement. According to the Daily Beast, even that settlement had some Armstrong shadiness involved as well…
On June 27th Joe Giudice will return to court to finalize negotiations for a possible plea bargain resulting from his 2011 indictment for obtaining a fraudulent license and other associated crimes. Joe negotiated more time to attempt to arrange a deal and previously rejected a plea bargain offered by the state to serve five years in prison with no restrictions on when he would be eligible for parole.
Joe has been hoping to avoid jail time in exchange for an extended probationary period, however Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay Mc Cann has announced that’s simply not an option. According to North Jersey.com, McCann commented that at least “some jail time” must be part of any plea agreement the state accepts as Joe’s charges are “too serious to allow a probation-only sentence.” Well, there you have it – it looks Joe will be headed to prison sometime soon.
Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding…oh oh oh ohhhh! It’s time for the much anticipated Zolciak-Biermann nuptials. Can you hear the wedding bells? They’re auto-tuned!
There is a lot of construction and place settings happening at Kendra Davis‘ abode. A trailer filled with high-end porta-potties pulls into the driveway. Kim forgoes the regular conversation with KJ, just singing to him while he’s held by an assistant and praying he won’t be fussy for her ceremony. Kroy and the couple’s officiant (and former Kroy teammate) Koy decide to imbibe a few beers. Kroy thinks this wedding is a gift from God, therefore, he isn’t the least bit nervous.
Kim wants to sent him a voice message professing her love. Kroy’s mom and sister are getting their make-up did done. His mom is trying to convince everyone about how young her skin looks. Kim’s mom enters stage wasted and finds Sheree Whitfield getting the full make-up/hair treatment. Mama Zolciak is jealous. Sheree seems to have popped some Xanax before being filmed…perhaps she’s dealing with some RHOA withdrawals.
Emily Maynard is engaged! The last man standing proposed to The Bachelorette just after midnight on May 11. He reportedly put a 4-carat Neil Lane diamond ring worth roughly $90,000 on her finger! ABC filmed the final rose ceremony on the Caribbean island Curaçao.
An insider tells Life & Style, “It was truly a one-of-a-kind fairy-tale experience for her.”
The average Bachelor/Bachelorette engagement normally ends sometime between the most dramatic proposal ever and the most dramatic after the rose ever. Will Emily and her man beat the odds? The source says, “Emily is still happy and engaged. She is ecstatic. She’s over the moon and loves her ring.” So far, so good.
No word on WHO the lucky fella is, but many believe it could be Arie Luyendyk, Jr. With the Arie love, though, comes the Arie controversy.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there has been a lot of back and forth about Kim and Kroy’s living situation, which all came to a screeching halt when Kendra Davis, homeowner and landlord of Kim’s Barbie dream house, kicked the family to the curb. Where to Zolciak-Biermanns? To Big Poppa’s condo it is! Tamara Tattles has some very insightful notions as to why Kim and Co. moved back into her Atlanta townhouse, not the least of which being it seemed the only viable option. She also has some interesting (and quite probable!) views on why Kendra finally said enough is enough!
Tamara also enlightens viewers about some of the wedding hullabaloo. What I found most interesting is that, in previews, Brielle informs her mother that there are helicopters flying over the property. My first thought? Paparazzi. My second thought? This isn’t Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Why is the paparazzi going to such extremes to snap a picture of a Bravolebrity couple? According to her blog, those helicopters don’t belong to invasive tabloid photographers, but Bravo cameras which are shooting all the aerial scenes for the wedding. Oh Kim, you had me fooled!
