Stevie J (aka Steven Jordan) returned to court yesterday hoping he could convince a judge that he’s not guilty of remiss child support payments! The Love & Hip Hop Atlanta star pled “Not Guilty” following an indictment for owing more than $1.1 million in unpaid support, and insists he does pay – but it’s being spent it faster than he makes it!
Stevie’s case is being tried in federal court, instead of state court as is the norm in family proceedings. “There is a history in this case of the failure of Family Court to address this successfully,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew DeFilippis explained, calling the federal court a “last resort” due to the extreme dollar amount of what Stevie owes and the lack of suitable resolution in state court due to filing errors.
Above, Stevie outside court, he captioned the photo: “My day 1 support system! @stefateaser @thebaddestputa1 @mcl_pr #The DevilIsALiar #lhhatl #TheJordans”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite family photos from the past few weeks.
We pick up at Kyle Richards’ gay singles mixer and let me tell you, if there is one thing that unified the gays in that room it’s that they were all: “HOLLA we never have to end up tied to one of these crazy broads!” Then they retreated to a corner, made good use of the free drinks, and watched the single almond dinner show, because as we learned last night women of Beverly Hills think indulging in a hot dog shared three ways is a treat.
Kyle wants Brandi and Kim Richards to leave – obviously because they have sucked the air out of a party already about dry spells – but Kim just sits at some table in the mood-glow lighting like, ‘I don’t want to leave it’s my by-proxy party cause Kyle is my sister and I can ruin it if I want to!’ Brandi hauls her out, after reminding her that Kyle is not her sister, which jerks Kim to life, cause – Brand is right!!! Huh?
Outside Kim complains that Kyle was trying to “force” Brandi to spill secrets about her life and wanted to embarrass her. Oh, and Kyle is to blame for everything. Brandi and Kim are a toxic mess.
Abby Lee Miller makes me want to break my television set. You mess with Nia, you mess with me! Last night’s Dance Moms was just more of Abby’s downward spiral into mean madness and delusion…and to be honest, I didn’t think she had much farther she could go! Boy, was I wrong!
After the ALDC’s first competition in Los Angeles where Abby was missing in action most of the time, she is back and more hateful than ever. I wanted to spit nails just watching her. When the group gets to a new studio, the moms and dancers wonder if Abby will even arrive at rehearsal. Holly has reached out to Aubrey O’Day (formerly of Danity Kane) to see if she would be interested in working with Nia. Abby beckons her students in with the shrieks of a banshee, yelling that the girls first attempt to compete in LA was “FAILURE!” Holly and Jill speak up to remind Abby that she was absent all last week so it’s not fair to blame the girls. Abby refuses to tell the mothers where she was the previous week, and Holly continues to ask her whereabouts. Holly then cites Abby’s unprofessional behavior during Nia’s casting call, and she screams that Abby is a shallow, nasty woman. She’s not Kelly or Christi and she accuses the other mothers of being cowards for not supporting her and standing up to Abby. Holly is sobbing and poor Nia is in limbo as Abby smirks.
“Remember not so long ago when some of you were asking when Season 5 was going to really get the Crazy Train in motion? Well, that Crazy Train is moving full force through Beverly Hills, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing anytime soon,” Lisa reflects.
“There are times when I’m enjoying the ride, times when I’m pissed off, and times when I’m just plain dumbfounded by what’s going on,” Lisa admits. “The bottom line is, I’m always looking for the best way to deal with what comes my way.”
Claudia Jordan may be new to Real Housewives of Atlanta – but she is no wallflower. Claudia came for that peach and she started drama with NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams to get it. If you’ve enjoyed Claudia thus far, you will love her blog this week. She called out her catty and hypocritical co-stars left and right. If you have NOT enjoyed Claudia, then this is going to be painful.
“When I watched the lunch between Porsha and NeNe, I wasn’t surprised at all. Since they only hang out with each other, what else are they going to do besides talk about me, Cynthia Bailey, and Kenya Moore?” snarked Claudia. “First of all, note the contrast between my girls vs. NeNe and Porsha. While we are out shopping, going to events, laughing, going on road trips, supporting each other, visiting each other’s homes, and actually having real fun, these two ‘ladies’ are always just sitting around at lunch being negative. I mean seriously, without their beefs with us, what would they talk about? We are the focus of every single one of their conversations, tweets, blogs, and talking points. Now I am not saying we have never discussed these ‘ladies,’ but we talk about other things as well. We actually have lives outside of NeNe and Porsha.”
