The Teresa Giudicefraud case is just getting underway and we're all on the edge of seats waiting to see how this will play out. Joe and Teresa are in court this morning and obviously ready to crack under the pressure of it all – if Joe's temper is any indication.
Until we hear more after their court hearing, we just wanted to share this piece of reading to hold you over. Here is the full indictment – it lists everything they Giudices are being accused of. It's pretty mind blowing and worth the 33 page read.
Has the season of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta already flown past us in a flurry of unblinged Rolexes, popcorn hos, no-necks, cabin fever (and flings!), and Joseline Hernandez one-liners? Sadly, it appears so. Last night was the season finale, and wow. I don't know if Stevie J. totally appalls me, or if I should be impressed by his sheer ego induced stupidity.
The episode begins with Stevie asking Joseline to clarify her question. She spells it out that she is asking him to marry her. He's not willing to say yes, but he likes the ring so he'll wear it. Joseline is special to him…and she buys him expensive gifts. Stevie thinks that patience is a virtue, and Joseline is thrilled that he's kind enough to wear the token of her undying devotion. Someone get her some self-esteem STAT.
Rasheeda invites Traci Reece, Erica Dixon, and Karlie Redd over for cocktails and nursery painting. She reveals that she's having a boy…and that she's consulted an attorney about her situation with husband Kirk Frost. Erica is saddened. Whose dysfunctional relationship can she look up to now? Speaking of, Rasheeda asks about Lil' Scrappy and his problem with the wiz-nigh-ee.
The Giudices are back in court again today because yesterday they were indicted for fraud! How's that for a hot date away from the kids!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars are being accused of 39-counts of various financial based fraud including wire fraud, loan fraud, federal tax evasion, mortgage fraud, bankruptcy fraud… you get the gist of it!
Apparently facing time in the slammer doesn't make Joe Giudice feel too good. As the couple waded through a sea of photographers eagerly awaiting to hear their response to the fraud allegations, he started throwing punches!
NorthJersey.com reports that they were more than an hour and a half early to court. Teresa Giudice wore white. Ha! That's like a shotgun wedding honey, the jig is up and you're no innocent. In the sea of photographers Joe lashed out and "swung" at one of them "hitting a photographer's camera". "Calm down, Joe," his lawyer, Miles Feinstein, was overheard warning. "Don't do that."
Joe and Teresa then walked in to the courthouse linking arms around 8:20 am.
The federal government alleges that the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars intentionally withheld and falsified financial information in order to obtain mortgages they could not afford then they failed to honestly report earned income to the IRS. Then upon filing bankruptcy they lied about income, assets, and potential income. All in all they are in biiiiig trouble, little Jersey!
It's interesting that despite Teresa being a stay-at-home wife and mother during that time she signed and submitted loan applications claiming she had income and a job.
Another interesting fact: Teresa and Joe have SEPARATE attorneys in the matter. Which is uncommon considering they are a married couple who filed Chapter 7 together and Joe was presumably the sole breadwinner during the timeframe.
While Kody Brown's hair may be my most favorite thing ever, the whole concept of Sister Wives is a bit off-putting. Perhaps if the women weren't so whiny, I could see why they'd all want to spend time together, but, alas, that isn't the case. However, I do enjoy the episodes that showcase the family's teenagers.
These kids are smart, mature, and seem to think for themselves. While Logan is Kody's mini-me, Janelle's daughter Madison totally speaks her mind. They didn't ask to be brought into this lifestyle. Being a teenager is hard enough, but being a teenager with three extra moms, a bed-hopping dad, and a gajillion half siblings–I can't imagine!
However, in Sunday's episode, Meri's daughter Mariah reveals that she wouldn't want her life any other way, and the seventeen-year-old is looking forward to the day when she has her own sister wives.
Oh thank goodness Gretchen Rossi is making money off the uber romantical and so super special and intimate proposal song she (and a team of Bravo hired producers) wrote for Slade Smiley.
That's soooooooooo special, y'all. Like the most beyond special-ist thing ever! So yeah, if you want to own your own little piece of television's most loving moment like ever you can buy it on iTunes.
The audio for this stunning love ballad is below. And you can be assured that autotune has been heavily deployed, even though like Gretchen doesn't need it because Real Housewives of Orange County producers intentionally made her sound worse on the show, just like because they're mean and like hate her and stuff! Not at all because she can't actually sing…
So, I'm not sure if you're aware, but the big gossip surrounding Princesses: Long Island is Joey Lauren's "persecution" of Ashlee White. HAHA. Ashlee is delusional – with a capital D – and her take on her ongoing feud with Joey is hilarious. Did you know Joey went after Ashlee at Amanda Bertoncini's white party? For no reason, Joey angrily screamed at Ashlee, "Nobody's on your side!" Is this bish for real? Her little recap leaves out the part where she tells Joey that none of "her" friends like her just to hurt her feelings.
"Love your enemies," advises the little wise one troll. "Just in case your friends turn out to be schmucks."
Am I sleeping? Is this a nightmare? I need a break from Ashlee – who's next? Ah, obnoxious Amanda and her speech challenged sister Taylor, of course. Bravo clearly has a mean spirited sense of humor. Amanda and Taylor are shopping. And talking. Amanda asks, "Want some Froooyooo?" and Taylor responds, "Froyo makes you lose weight, right?" Sure, it also boosts brain power, so eat up!
