If there’s one thing we know for certain, it’s that reality TV and BFF-hood don’t mix. Repeat: Do not come on a reality show with your BFFL and expect it to be buddy-buddy 4 eva. It seems the second the cameras start rolling and the editing kicks in – along with the drinks and the contracts stipulating drama, fights, and backstabbing, the individual interviews and the out-famewhoring and jealousy – these long-time friendships melt faster than an ice cube in a toaster.
Friendship divorces have come to dominate reality TV and sadly it was often those friendships that got us hooked on the show in the first place. When a friendship divorce happens, often it leaves the fans as divided as the main characters.
So here’s to the used-to-be friends and their friendship divorces. So sorry it didn’t work out – but sometimes one person’s loss is another’s gain! Big things can come from public relationship break-ups.
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our most memorable friendship divorces.
I have to say that mob life as I always pictured isn’t quite as mob-esque as what I gather from VH1. Let me break it down for you…today’s Mob Wives‘ news revolves around a rap video and contract dispute. Not very Tony Soprano if you ask me.
It seems that Mob Wives Chicago stars Nora Schweihs and Renee FecarottaRusso have a lot to learn about the entertainment industry. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, both are being sued by their manager Nick Celozzi, Jr. He claims that he entered into management contracts with both women, and his talent company was able to land them a place at the Mob Wives Chicago casting call. According to the two year contracts which were signed in December, both women agreed to pay him fifteen percent per episode of their VH1 paycheck. With the women scoring $6,000 per show, Nick is entitled to $900 per show from each woman.
If Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries keep going the way they’re going, this is going to be the divorce trial to end all divorce trials. Of course, I think that is the mantra of the Kardashian Klan…go big or go home, right? Or is it go to your big home? Either way. It’s shaping up to be quite the legal battle. I don’t know about y’all but I am crossing my fingers for a televised trial.
The latest news is pretty hilarious if you ask me. Apparently, according to RadarOnline.com, Kris’ legal team never had any plans to bring up the fact that Kim moved on so quickly with Kanye West. Now I don’t know the laws in California (so someone please help me out in the comments section), but I find that hard to believe. If it were the state where I live, Kim would be flat out cheating on him as their divorce isn’t final yet. How could you not bring that up in your legal argument?
Having a deadbeat dad on the cast roster is rapidly becoming a Real Housewives rite of passage. Hopefully it’s not going to replace the speakerphone invite!
The latest accused deadbeat comes in the form of serial Housewives-schtuper Harry Dubin. Oh dear… According to the New York Post, Aviva Drescher is accusing her ex of being delinquent in child support and other related fees and alleges that he owes her $294,372 for their son Harrison, 10.
Aviva also claims Harry owes $50,000 in private school and summer camp fees. Harry, probably busy fornicating with a Housewife somewhere, forgot he had a child and completely denies owing a red cent.
The increasingly vitriolic divorce between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries will seemingly never end. Oh, well – at least it’s interesting as they drag each other through the mud with ever-escalating crazy!
In the latest Kris is apparently accusingKris Jenner and Kim of staging her sex tape to make her famous. Hot on the heels of Kim telling Oprah that she was embarrassed of the tape and had no intention of it entering the public eye all while admitting it benefited her career, Kris H is allegedly told possible ex-girlfriend Myla Sinanaj that the Kardashians staged the whole thing.
In text messages Kris allegedly sent to Myla (according to her!) shortly after his divorce – which Kim is hoping to release to the public – Kris reportedly trashed the K-fam and accused Kris J of directing Kim in her sex tape! And, even worse, demanding Kim re-shoot scenes because it didn’t make her look attractive enough! Ok, ew to the millionth power.
