Poor Taylor Armstrong! It seems nothing is working out for poor loony lips as she is desperate to hang onto both her reality show gig and her pennies!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star recently filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit filed against her by MyMedicalRecords.com. I’m sure you remember, Taylor and her late husband Russell Armstrong were accused of defrauding investors and misappropriating their funds, which they then used to fund a “lavish lifestyle.” Well, some of that money has never been recovered and MMRGlobal wants Taylor to pay up to the tune of $1.5M.
I guess Taylor feels she could use that money elsewhere – like on more injections and botox? – and so her lawyer filed a petition to dismiss the suit. RadarOnline reports that Judge Frederick Shaller denied the motion citing Team Taylor did not meet “its burden of proof.”
“All the circumstances existing at the time of the making of the contract are considered, including the relationship that the damages proved in the contract bear to the range of harm that reasonably could be anticipated at the time of the making of the contract,” his ruling explains.
Oops. Foiled again Tay-Tay! Hope you’ve been saving your paychecks!
DID THE JUDGE MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION? SHOULD TAYLOR HAVE TO PAY UP?
Just as season 2 of Mob Wives is winding down, VH1 has announced that season 3 is a go! No word on which cast members are returning for sure, but I’d bet Drita D’avanzo, Karen Gravano, Renee Graziano and company will all be returning for more drama.
Season 2 of VH1′s hit reality series, “Mob Wives” is ending just as it began…on an emotional roller coaster as all the ladies end up in the same room for the first time this season. The explosive 2-part reunion special, hosted by The View’s Joy Behar, is set to air on May 20th and 27th and will reveal even more laughter, tears and drama than was already packed into the 17 episode season. And for the millions of “Mob Wives” fans out there, there will officially be a season 3 premiering in early 2013.
The big question will be – what about Big Ang? Now that she has landed her own spinoff, it’s hard to say.
Laura Govan has been working hard to change her image – both in her personal life and her appearance! And perhaps she’s had a little work done in the nose department! But hey – she’s a big TV star now – she’s gotta look good, right?
Laura’s body transformation has been on-going and since she has allegedly (possibly?) left Basketball Wives LA, the star seems to be much happier and she is looking good! “My diet is terrible. I’m not even gonna lie. I eat a lot of junk food,” she confessed to Vibe in an interview last year. “Right now I’m a size four and I think when I first started the show I was a size 14.”
She adds, “There are things that I do and I’m definitely gonna share but not just yet. I’ll put it on dvd and then I’m gonna share.”
With the Bachelorette premiering in less than a week, everyone (that may be a stretch), including me, is wondering what to expect from mild-mannered single mom Emily Maynard. She infamously turned down being the Bachelorette (much to Bentley Williams’ chagrin) after first being approached, explaining she wanted to live out of the limelight with young daughter Ricki. However, the rose veteran and former “winner” of Brad Womack’s (second) season, has since done a one-eighty, agreeing to let twenty-five cheesy eligible bachelors vie for her hand in marriage on the show’s eighth season.
Realitytvworld.com has the skinny on her latest print interview in the upcoming PEOPLE magazine. Emily talks of finding love, little Ricki, and those ever-present hot tub scenes the ABC franchise loves to exploit.
The newest Bachelorette tells the magazine, “I don’t want to be kissing every guy. I want to still be a lady. I’m a mom first,” adding, “I’m hoping the hot tubs have been completely phased out.”
Emily also doesn’t want date time to ever interfere with daughter time. While Ricki has been traveling with mom throughout the season, she has spent a lot of time hanging out with her grandparents and a nanny, and, according to Emily, loving every minute of it. Emily reveals, “[The show] has been so good at making sure there’s time scheduled for the two of us.”
After last week’s blindside, last night’s Survivor episode assured us that finally-FINALLY-the remaining castaways are playing the game.
After Kat gets the shaft, the women (and Tarzan) are laughing on the beach about her final words. Tarzan has a master plan he’s unwilling to share, but he approaches Kim about her strategy. He promises to get the jury to vote for her if she ends up in the final three with Alicia and Christina. Of course, that means that Kim has to vote off her biffle Chelsea. Tarzan is all about the mind games.
Chelsea believes the game is three-on-three: Chelsea, Kim, and Sabrina versus Christina, Alicia, and Tarzan. Chelsea thinks it is funny that Christina’s trio thinks that Kim is joining their alliance. Poor Chelsea. Chelsea tries to sway Christina to further her threesome, but Christina runs back to camp to relay everything she heard to Kim and Tarzan. Kim, of course, tells Chelsea that Christina turned on her immediately after their conversation. Chelsea is pissed, and Kim is getting exhausted trying to play both sides.
The Huffington Post reports Brandi will definitely be added to next season’s cast as a full-time Housewife and that filming with her kids had little to do with Bravo’s decision to hire her! “Bravo signed up Brandi, not her children,” an insider reveals. “They love her personality and willingness to talk freely about anything without having to consult managers and PR agents.”
“She for sure will be a full-time Housewife next season. Filming is going so well she might end up being the new star of the show,” the insider adds.
And the rumor that Brandi was fired for not being able to have her kids on film is just that a rumor! “In fact the opposite is true,” the insider shared. “In the past, cast members have tried so hard to get their kids on camera to make them famous and it has never worked out.”
The insider even alleges that Bravo finds family-centric storylines boring! “You never see Adrianne Maloof’s children and whenever the story line has focused on the kids, it has become dull very quickly. Anyone that tells you they do not want to be part of the show because they are protecting their children is simply not telling you the truth.”
Well, it seems that Brandi and Eddie are still working out the terms of whether or not their children will be featured in the show. At a recent soccer game for their son, Brandi and Eddie were seen arguing and Brandi threatened to take him to court over the matter! A witness describes their exchange as a “hostile confrontation.” See – that’s why Bravo wants her. She’s willing to engage in a “hostile confrontation” in public, at a children’s soccer game. Oh, lawd.
The executive producer of Basketball Wives, Shaunie O’Neal is apparently not happy enough with her VH-1 empire and is going Hollywood. While I think this would be an excellent reason for America’s movie theaters to start serving alcohol like they do in Europe (who can watch this without a box of wine?), Shaunie thinks this will be an inspiring story and tells Vibe that it’s not just ladies fighting. She swears.
It’s fictional. Even though it has to do with basketball life, it’s not actually taking Basketball Wives from TV and making it a movie. And it’s not about women sitting around arguing or lunching all the time. It’s an actual story. It’s a love story. It’s an empowering story. It’s funny. It’s life. It’s similar—we’ve taken a girl who’s just going into the NBA life and experiencing things and showing the whole story. She learns from the organization. She learns from other wives. And by the end of the story, it’s empowering for women and men. It’s so nothing like the TV show at all. No comparison.
Dance Moms: Miami, you never disappoint. After a good showing in Michigan last week, Victor and Angel are focused on Nationals. It’s time for the list! Jessi has moved her way up from the bottom of the list to the top. Kimmy scores second due to her technical skills. However, they want to see more emotion in her dancing. Lucas is safe in third, and Hannah places fourth. Debi is beyond thrilled to see that Hannah has beaten Sammy. Victor is quick to tell the young girl that he thinks she should have been last as she didn’t trust her partner. Angel thinks that Hannah had a rough week and worked hard. Sammy is confused as to why she’s at the bottom, and while Victor thought she should have garnered fourth, her mother’s lack of respect for questioning their choreography lands her in last place.
The group is heading to Orlando. Jessi and Hannah will have solos, and Kimmy and Lucas dance a duet. The week’s theme is “survival,” so this should be good. Sammy is relegated to just performing in the group dance. The children tell Victor and Angel which animals they would be if they lived in the wild. Back in the mom room, Abby is appalled that they women were chastised in front of their children. Debi agrees…Hannah’s behavior was picture perfect during rehearsals for the duet. Furthermore, Debi never threatened to pull Hannah from the duet. Abby continues that she was perfectly happy seeing the girls dance together. Her main concern is that the girls didn’t have enough time to practice because Victor stormed out of rehearsal. Brigette is beyond exhausted of listening to the women pretend they were happy with the duet. They hated the fact their daughters were forced to dance together. We all remember…it was just last week!
