Last week we reported that Renee Graziano‘s son AJ Pagan was arrested after being involved in a Staten Island street brawl. A witness claimed the seventeen-year-old was actually trying to break up the fight, which included several girls, and was not responsible for the incident. The fight eventually broke apart and police were not called to the scene.
TMZ just released a video of the incident which shows AJ rushing over and pulling one of the girls away from the brawl; he can be heard yelling “Stop!” The video is below. The content is grainy and hard to see, but TMZ identifies AJ.
AJ’s rep maintains he had no involvement in the incident and the teen was driving around Staten Island with his girlfriend when they noticed the girls fighting. AJ stopped to try and diffuse the situation. Afterwards, AJ heard no further news about the incident until this past Wednesday when police arrived at his home to arrest him for allegedly hitting one of the girls in the altercation!
AJ’s rep insists he did not hit anyone and the video clearly demonstrates this. AJ’s rep also insists the girl is trying to exploit AJ because of his connection with Mob Wives! “Beyond engaging in violent behavior, it speaks very poorly of this girl’s character that she would blatantly lie in an attempt to defame AJ’s name. The truth will come out and we feel justice will be served.”

We receive a lot of emails each week asking if we can help identify a particular piece of jewelry, clothing, and/or decor featured on our favorite reality shows. Sometimes we’re able to help, but not always. So, rather than reply with a “sorry, no clue!”, we thought we’d turn to you, our oh-so-resourceful readers! You guys are the best when it comes to sleuthing, so let’s see if you can help two of your fellow readers this week!
Last night’s Mob Wives seemed to be another calm episode, thank goodness. Most of the women were dealing with their jacka$$y exes, but there were no screaming matches, no altercations, and no drama. It was a bit weird, I’ll admit!
Drita D’Avanzo is playing with her new pup Lucky when she receives a call from soon-to-be-ex-husband Lee. She shares her rap video/bank robbing debut with Lee, and he’s excited for her. She drops the bomb that she wants to start dating. Drita is confused at how supportive he’s being, and it makes her remember why she married him in the first place. She’s thrilled the pair is getting along and can be friends, but she really wishes Lee had never cheated.
Ramona Rizzo and Karen Gravano head to a specialty grocery. Karen wants to get Ramona’s opinion about reconciling with Drita. Ramona is not at all on board. At. All. Karen is only considering this treaty to make Renee Graziano happy. Ramona warns that Drita will end up getting physical as she’s a “different breed.” Karen is quick to say that the second Drita gets violent, Karen will end up in jail for rearranging her face. Ahhh, mending fences…
Vicki was reportedly surprised at the news, but no doubt thrilled! Briana and Ryan will be celebrating their wedding later this month. The couple eloped in Las Vegas last October. Upon learning the news that they married in a walk up chapel in last week’s episode Vicki was “shocked” and “disgusted.” Hopefully she’s reacted better to the news that she will become a grandmother!
Congratulations Briana and Ryan! We wish you well!
THOUGHTS ON THE NEWS? DO YOU THINK VICKI WAS EXCITED?
Fans of Teresa Giudice have been upset about what seemed like her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga‘s desire to join the show for the sake of her own fame.

The legal battle between Kim Kardashian and insta-ex husband Kris Humphries rages on. In the latest development, Kris’s lawyers asked for more time to pursue evidence that the whole marriage was a publicity stunt. If the pair doesn’t reach a resolution, the case could go to trial, which could bust open the Kardashian facade. Kim’s lawyer Laura Wasser says Kris is extending the case needlessly, saying “I feel that (Humphries’) personal feelings and maybe some media drive is keeping this case alive.”
Kim’s team said in court last week that if the case is decided in her favor, she will demand that Kris pay her legal fees. The lawyers will return to court on August 15.
Clearly having a better marriage is sister Khloe Kardashian, who has had to deal with pregnancy rumors as of late after she and husband Lamar Odom decided to walk away from their reality show Khloe and Lamar. What may put a stop to those rumors is her recent 20 pound weight loss. Her trainer tells Life and Style her method:
“She eats mostly fresh fruits and vegetables, with small amounts of lean proteins like fish and chicken. She trains like an athlete when she’s with us, even doing weight training. We also run the canyons surrounding their house. Plus she does pilates and stair-running on her own.”
Sounds dreadful! Mama Kris Jenner tells the magazine that the couple is “SO happy” now they no longer have a pesky reality show to worry about. A recent photo posted to Twitter shows a slimmer, glowing Khloe:
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: when RHOBH, RHONJ, and RHOC collide! Gretchen Rossi shared this shot on her Twitter account: “Thanks for the fun night girls @melissagorga @kylerichards18 @lisavanderpump”
Because reality stars (past and present) thrive on attention of any kind, they’re always in the press. Good or bad! Here’s a round-up of what’s been happening as of late.
The formerReal Housewives of DC stars have had an eventful week. Perhaps they’re coordinating press releases for maximum exposure!
Up first, Mary Amons filed for divorce from husband Rich Amons. She announced her split from her husband of 26 years on Facebook! “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my twenty-six year marriage. While I have the deepest respect for my husband and wish him the very best, we have grown apart,” Mary wrote.
She then added that she wants privacy during this difficult time – which is why she publicized it on Facebook, right? What this means is that every single member of the former RHODC cast is now a single lady. Perhaps Bravo can do a former Real Housewives dating show?
