What do you do when the going gets tough? Well, if you are Mike Shouhed, you sink your bright white teeth into a get rich quick scheme.
If you follow the Shahs of Sunset star on Facebook or Twitter, you know that he's forever pushing an anti-aging skim cream called Nerium AD. Two recent posts from Mike: "Align with me and let's build an empire. Inbox me if you are business minded and self motivated." and "Are you are an experienced Network Marketer with an MLM background and would like to capitalize on the First Movers Advantage? Nerium International's revenue over the past two and a half years of existence has been astronomical, they have broken every record in the industry and my business is an all out massive momentum. If would like to partner with a celebrity or are serious about making 2014 better than 2013…"
What do you do when said multi-level marketing scheme gets you sued? Well, um, I guess Mike will soon need to figure that out.
This weekTeresa Giudiceand Joe Giudice finally faced the inevitable and pled guilty for their 41 counts of federal fraud charges. Teresa has expressed her shame for what this has done to her daughters and vowed not to speak publicly about the matter again. Until Barbara Walters or Oprah comes a'callin' I'm sure!
Faced with an insurmountable indictment, the Real Housewives of New Jerseystar is subject to a sentence of 21 – 27 months but Judge Esther Salas has the final say in just how long – if any – Teresa will serve in prison. Perhaps Joe may just be headed to the slammer solo! Teresa's attorney explained to People that Teresa has a strategy for convincing the Judge why she should be permitted to remain a free lady.
"Teresa's plan is to explain to the court both how she ended up in this mess to begin with as well as how she has made a life for herself and the girls that will see them through it," her lawyer Henry Klingeman revealed. "We have the right to ask for probation and we are going to."
I don't think a day goes by that I wonder if reality stars ever learn from their bad behavior. I realize they likely never will, but sometimes even I get surprised. Basketball Wives star Tami Roman may have just shocked me yet! The volatile bestie of Evelyn Lozada and Shaunie O'Neal seems to have learned some lessons after watching herself on the small screen. Too bad her friends have yet to follow suit!
The veteran reality star compares her time on MTV's Real World to the producer created (I'm looking at you, Nostrils!) drama, and cites that one genre (at least back in her day) was a lot more authentic than the other…you know, back when reality television was actually supposed to be real.
Carlton Gebbia was rushed to the hospital via ambulance last night after she got WASTED at dinner and passed out cold only 20 minutes in!!
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, whose job is already reportedly on the line, hosted a dinner at Mastro's Steakhouse for six of her girlfriends last night. The ladies were downing shots of tequila and she passed out cold at the table!
Do we know the whereabouts of the Bling Ring? Really, are they in jail? Filming a new season of Pretty Wild (I loved that awful show #sorrynotsorry)? Collecting Hollywood paychecks as residuals for the major motion picture that was made about them? The authorities in Calabasas, California may want to find out what that crazy gang of kids has been up to as of late because someone has been ripping off the Kardashians.
Both Khloe Kardashian and sisterKourtney have been robbed recently…and the instances may be connected. Quick, someone call Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson because this could be a job for them (totally obsessed with True Detective when I'm not watching reality shows!). Seriously, it is odd that both sisters were targeted by criminals at the same time.
I admit that I am not a sports fan and I don't know much about Erin Andrews, but I was hoping she would be a step up from Brooke Burke as co-host on Dancing with the Stars. The more I read, however, the more I think this will not be the case. Not even close.
First I read that Erin's worried about living up to Brooke's legacy. Huh? She's striving for vapid nonsensical chatter? Okay, then. Next I see that she's girl crushing season 18 competitor NeNe Leakes. I'm not really a fan of the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, so this pains me to read.
In her recent Bravo blogLisa Vanderpumpexplains what motivated her to leave Puerto Rico in the middle of the night (in addition to the onslaught from her castmates they left because Ken was having health problems) and she is saddened that none of her supposed friends reached out to her.
"I was deeply hurt and had not heard from any of them, which was fascinating by virtue of the fact that this was just an accusation, hurled by someone who had a penchant for vindictive, defamatory statements," Lisa wrote alluding to Brandi Glanville and the tabloid accusation.
