Chris And Jacqueline Laurita: New Movement In Signature Apparel Bankruptcy Case

It's mind-boggling that it has been almost five years since Signature Apparel Group filed for bankruptcy!  The company, owned by former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Chris Laurita and his brother Joseph filed for bankruptcy in late 2009, despite having record income of $250 million during the years of 2005-2009.  The bankruptcy has been held up by a number of a issues, namely the accusation that the Lauritas frivolously spent eight million dollars for personal use. 

According to the complaint at the time, Chris and Joseph were accused of "draining the company of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations,” the complaint filed November 2, 2010 alleged. “Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.”

Shannon Beador and Vicki Gunvalson 2014 Bravo Upfronts

Vicki Gunvalson is seeming saner this season – and strangely (and scarily) emerging as somewhat of a voice of reason amid a turbulent season of Real Housewives of Orange County. 

With co-stars turning on each other left and right, and friends quickly becoming enemies, Vicki has stayed above the fray and for the most part out of the drama! After learning of Shannon Beador's marital issues, and that an extremely personal email between Shannon and her husband David became the subject of gossip, Vicki shares that her heart goes to Shannon – and that she is disappointed in both Heather Dubrow and Tamra Barney. Vicki, are you feeling OK?

"It was sad for me to see Shannon, who I care about so much, be in such a vulnerable and sad place in her life this episode," Vicki writes in her Bravo blog. "Shannon learned the hard way — that by sharing that intimate email with Tamra she had no idea what would happen from there."

miami blue dress Samantha DeBianchi

Sam DeBianchi is the first woman to ever join the ranks of the Million Dollar Listing franchise. Breaking into the boys league on Million Dollar Listing Miami, Sam shares her experiences joining the cast and doing reality TV in general. 

Sam admits that she had always hoped that she would find her way to reality TV (of course) as her ambitions have already led her to be a real estate commentator on Fox News. However, she was still surprised when Bravo came a'callin! “They essentially sought after the top agents. I was one of them and now I am here. They were also looking for something different,” Sam says. 

"I have been a fan of the show since Day 1," Sam admits to The Wrap. "I loved it and I'm obsessed with the show. I think it is awesome. Its funny, but you also see deals."

melissa gorga at the 2014 bravo upfronts

For the first time since Melissa Gorga joined Real Housewives of New Jersey, family feuding will not dominate the storyline. Of course, that just means there's room for other feuds! With non-family members. Oh goody. 

This year twin sisters Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea join the cast, along with Melissa's former friend Amber Marchese (pronounced Mar-CHEESY – how perfect, amirite?!). And, of course, Dina returns now that her family members have been kicked off the show. 

"I think they fit in really well. It's fresh and different," Melissa tells WetPaint about the new cast members. "But it's a bumpy road… There's a lot of things you won't expect to happen."

Mob Wives Renee Graziano

Apparently Renee Graziano is taking over reality TV. All reality TV. She'll be sowing her wild oats as she spreads the love around VH1. But don't worry – she's not leaving her home show Mob Wives

Renee chatted with Wetpaint about expanding her reality TV palate by taking guest runs on Hollywood Exes to hang out with the cast. Not only is she appearing on Hollywood Exes (which just goes to show you don't have to be a Hollywood ex or even live in Hollywood to make the cut), but we're also going to see her on Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta…also proving that you don't have to live in Atlanta or have any ties to the hip hop community to be in good with Mona Scott Young

Khloe Kardashian

Another day, another rumor about her love life. Do you ever think Khloe Kardashian longs for the days when Lamar was normal and her love life was not constantly under a microscope? Well, those days are long gone and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is being hounded by two very different reports about her personal life.

In the first one, a college coed is accusing her rumored beau of the last few months, French Montana, of trying to put the moves on her while Khloe was in L.A. at Kidchella — AKA North West's first birthday party.

In the second report, Khloe's momager, Kris Jenner, claims that Khloe and French are just 'homies.' (Note to Kris Jenner — at a certain age no one and I mean NO ONE should say the word 'homies')

So are they together or aren't they? If they aren't then can't he do whatever he wants with coeds? And, if they are just 'homies,' then why are they attached at the hip?
