The History Channel's Pawn Stars is being sued for a whopping $5 million!
The talent agency Venture IAB Inc. signed Richard "Rick" Harrison, Richard "The Old Man" Harrison, Richard "Big Hoss" Harrison, and Austin "Chumlee" Russell as clients in 2007 and again in 2009.
According to the talent agency, they played a part in the deal that led to Pawn Stars, which premiered July 19, 2009 on History.
However, just six months later, the stars of Pawn Stars terminated their contracts with Venture IAB after alegedly being influenced by two Pawn Stars execs, Mary Donahue and Nancy Dubuc, to sign with a friend of theirs, Michael Camacho.
I know, I know, this could describe almost every single one of the reality TV stars of late, right?! Being rich seems to be the exception and not the rule. This little blind item tidbit has to do with a more up and coming Housewife reality TV star and that's all we can say about that.
The alleged dirt:
"Mrs. X has several kids from (possibly) two different baby daddies and there may be another on the way. Her husband, who has been touted as a "very wealthy man" doesn't quite live up to that title (when do they ever?!). His profession is not what it has been presented as. He is actually a general laborer of sorts. Considering that the application process for many reality shows include a full and lengthy questionnaire on financial details, it's safe to assume they may have fudged the numbers a bit – or a lot. They borrow luxury brand items to make it seem like they have the best of the best – including clothing. The show may have a hot scandal on its hands since he reportedly has wandering hands and she and the kids spend a lot of time at a friend's house because of it."
Remember that Blind Items are more about the fun of the guessing game. Although, the truth does tend to come out eventually….
Oh Evelyn Lozada. You keep doing your thing, and I'll continue to have a job. It's a win-win! Geez, the Basketball Wives star needs to teach a class at a local college called Staying Relevant 101. Perhaps it could parlay into an upper lever professorial career. If there is one thing that Evelyn knows, it's how to throw a wine bottle keep her name in the media. Surely it has to get exhausting, right?
Not only has Evelyn just unveiled her new PETA photo shoot, she's also responding vehemently to haters. I KNEW it! All of Ev's fur vests were faux, and her leather boots/gladiator footwear/snakeskin stilettos were so fake. She's a friend of animals even if she's not a friend of actual humans. Evelyn is so multi-faceted. Don't you agree? I know you don't, and I love you all for it!
Hell hath no fury like a cheap extension loving woman with clothes to hawk! ApparentlyKim D (and the "D" stands for dastardly) is signing into the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey with a serious ax to grind and one Melissa Gorga is quaking in her boots. Maybe she can write a song about it…
Apparently Kim does run with the big boys – and those big boys go by the name of Bravo! Kim has been in "top-secret" negotiations with Bravo a source tells The National Enquirer and is developing a scheme to take Melissa down and vindicate Teresa Giudice. And Kim frankly doesn't give a damn if the other women of the cast like her or not! Did I ever tell you guys I secretly love the Kims something awful?
“Bravo knows Kim D would bring some serious drama to the show, and that’s going to mean huge ratings," a source shares. And the network is reportedly over the two-seasons long family hate fest the show turned into and they are looking for some new ways to cause controversy, but they're keeping ties with Kim veeeeery secret!
I know I've said it before, but I love, love, LOVE the Robertson family. If I didn't think Jase and his wifey were so adorbs, he would totally be my dream guy. Yes, I'm talking about that little gem on A&E known as Duck Dynasty. Sure, the situations they get into are definitely scripted, but the love and hilarity is so real. Duck Dynasty is what reality programming should always be like…it's the same reason I watch Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Jersey Shore. They all truly care for one another.
Yes, they're hairy and silly and don't shower that often, but they are all very intelligent and kind. Did you know that Phil is a former school teacher who declined the NFL draft while playing first-string quarterback at Louisiana Tech? The second-string quarterback when Phil played was NFL Hall-of-Famer Terry Bradshaw. All of his boys went to college, and they all became Duck Masters except for Al who used to be a minister…he's also the only one sans beard. Okay, okay, I'll stop with the ridiculous Robertson trivia. I just love them…and now they've given me yet another reason.
The Robertsons typically live under the radar (minus the whole reality show thing), but now they are using their popularity for the greater good. I am not at all surprised. These are good people, y'all, and if you've never watched, I highly encourage you to do so. It's drama-free fun…and cute burly men!
Hey remember when Kenya Moore was telling everyone she was going to get engaged to Walter Jackson and then Walter told the media they weren't even really dating because she asked to be her pretend boyfriend just for a Real Housewives of Atlanta storyline? Yeah, well that happened – at least according to Walter!
Days after Walter spilled the secret that he was a boyfriend-for-hire ( a plot straight out of a corny Lifetime movie) and that Bravo producers had no idea they were faking things for the camera, Kenya is insisting that's not true to save her butt!
"The truth is and has always been that I want to be in a loving, honest, long-term relationship with someone who genuinely loves me for me — Walter's recent statements are completely false," Kenya told TooFab.
