First, let me apologize for SO MANY Real Housewives of New Jersey posts this week! Hot on the heels of the season finale and because of the frenzy surrounding the upcoming reunion shows, they are EVERYWHERE in the media right now!
Well, we now know why Rich Wakile was spotted mulling around the courthouse in his beach couture recently! It seems that the Real Househusband of New Jersey is not only hoping to get free clothes, but he thinks he's so famous he should get free landscaping, to boot!
Rich was ordered to pay an outstanding bill owed to Natural Paradise Landscaping this week by a judge in the Passaic County court. The owner of the company chatted with Radar Online and shared some pretty outlandish conversations he had with Richie while he was attempting to collect the debt.
Shocking new child abuse claims surrounding Kate Gosselinsurfaced today. Reporter Robert Hoffman alleges the Gosselin kids have suffered extreme forms of discipline at the hands of their mother. And, he says, he has written proof.
Hoffman was an employee of the Reading Eagle, which is the local paper in Gosselin Land,until 2007. Hoffman later went on to write for US Weekly.
At some point, Hoffman and Jon Gosselin became friends, which allowed him access to their home. Now, Hoffman claims he found one of Kate's journals. With all this information in hand, Hoffman has written a tell-all book about Kate titledKate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World, which Kate's lawyers are attempting to block from being published.
“I don’t judge somebody for spanking, but what Kate wrote in her journal is just absolute violence,” Hoffman says. "She was beating 2-year-old babies in diapers."
Andrew Coleman's web of lies unraveled last night on Flipping Out, and I must say it was much more dramatic than I anticipated. You know, I thought Andrew was funny the first couple episodes, but his attitude is horrendous. I do think, however, that it was the best show of the season so far!
Andrew seems a little sullen after his tongue lashing from Jeff Lewis, but he is willing to do Jeff's grunt work. Jeff insists he isn't trying to punish Andrew….he just want him to prove that he really wants to the job by being willing to do anything…even if it's cleaning the outside range.
Jenni Pulos and Jeff are going to meet with Lisa. At Lisa's office the pair trade off wearing Kangoo boots and racing down the hall, crashing face first into walls. They get scolded by en EXTRA! employee like two children. It's hilarious. Jeff has countertop samples for Lisa, but all she sees are rising dollar signs. He had better keep this budget in check!
Reality shows are still big business and today's list of series renewals proves just that.
TLC announced today that they have ordered additional episodes of the surprise hit series "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo"! The first half of season 1's finale is tonight, but TLC promises they will be back with several more episodes! In a statement they shared, "Alana and her family have become a pop culture phenomenon. What you see is what you get, and we are excited to share even more of their unbridled hilarity, sincerity and love with our viewers."
Love it or hate it, Honey Boo Boo and her crew aren't going away anytime soon!
Ok – so this morning I made a trip down to Anderson Live where I was the guest live-blogger of the day. Which is awesome. Kellie Pickler, who is cute as a button and sweet as tea, was the co-host with Anderson. She could not be more adorable, more gracious, or more kind to the fans.
Kellie spent every break walking around the audience engaging with people, talking about life, and just being awesome. I snagged a super secret photo of her being sweet and that is below. Shhh…don't tell Anderson's producers. #instagram
Also, Kellie is itty-bitty in real-life and she proudly displayed her newly shaved head, which looks fantastic (and she does have a perfectly round head). She seems 100% genuine and down-to-earth. Unlike some of Anderson's reality star guests who I'll get to in a minute.
So, now for the news you've all been waiting for: Teresa Giudice! As you know she was the other guest. And since Real Housewives of New Jersey has dominated my life for what has now been the last six months I was super SUPER excited to meet the lady, the myth, the legend in the flesh.
Can I just say, I'm watching Anderson Live, and that interview certainly didn't go as Teresa Giudice planned. If looks could kill, Kellie Pickler would be performing CPR on poor Anderson Cooper right now. Wow. It's not Teresa's morning, and unfortunately for her, I have some more bad press for her, courtesy of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. These women of Real Housewives of New Jersey love to give an interview, don't they? I really can't believe they don't get along seeing as how much they have in common.
In light of stripper-gate, Melissa is making sure we remember just how mean Teresa is (we get it, we get it!). This time around she's talking about the "roughing up" that happened at poor G-to-the-IA Giudice's birthday party. I mean, these poor, poor kids. Shame on these ladies!
