On June 27th Joe Giudice will return to court to finalize negotiations for a possible plea bargain resulting from his 2011 indictment for obtaining a fraudulent license and other associated crimes. Joe negotiated more time to attempt to arrange a deal and previously rejected a plea bargain offered by the state to serve five years in prison with no restrictions on when he would be eligible for parole.
Joe has been hoping to avoid jail time in exchange for an extended probationary period, however Passaic County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay Mc Cann has announced that’s simply not an option. According to North Jersey.com, McCann commented that at least “some jail time” must be part of any plea agreement the state accepts as Joe’s charges are “too serious to allow a probation-only sentence.” Well, there you have it – it looks Joe will be headed to prison sometime soon.
Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding…oh oh oh ohhhh! It’s time for the much anticipated Zolciak-Biermann nuptials. Can you hear the wedding bells? They’re auto-tuned!
There is a lot of construction and place settings happening at Kendra Davis‘ abode. A trailer filled with high-end porta-potties pulls into the driveway. Kim forgoes the regular conversation with KJ, just singing to him while he’s held by an assistant and praying he won’t be fussy for her ceremony. Kroy and the couple’s officiant (and former Kroy teammate) Koy decide to imbibe a few beers. Kroy thinks this wedding is a gift from God, therefore, he isn’t the least bit nervous.
Kim wants to sent him a voice message professing her love. Kroy’s mom and sister are getting their make-up did done. His mom is trying to convince everyone about how young her skin looks. Kim’s mom enters stage wasted and finds Sheree Whitfield getting the full make-up/hair treatment. Mama Zolciak is jealous. Sheree seems to have popped some Xanax before being filmed…perhaps she’s dealing with some RHOA withdrawals.
Emily Maynard is engaged! The last man standing proposed to The Bachelorette just after midnight on May 11. He reportedly put a 4-carat Neil Lane diamond ring worth roughly $90,000 on her finger! ABC filmed the final rose ceremony on the Caribbean island Curaçao.
An insider tells Life & Style, “It was truly a one-of-a-kind fairy-tale experience for her.”
The average Bachelor/Bachelorette engagement normally ends sometime between the most dramatic proposal ever and the most dramatic after the rose ever. Will Emily and her man beat the odds? The source says, “Emily is still happy and engaged. She is ecstatic. She’s over the moon and loves her ring.” So far, so good.
No word on WHO the lucky fella is, but many believe it could be Arie Luyendyk, Jr. With the Arie love, though, comes the Arie controversy.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that there has been a lot of back and forth about Kim and Kroy’s living situation, which all came to a screeching halt when Kendra Davis, homeowner and landlord of Kim’s Barbie dream house, kicked the family to the curb. Where to Zolciak-Biermanns? To Big Poppa’s condo it is! Tamara Tattles has some very insightful notions as to why Kim and Co. moved back into her Atlanta townhouse, not the least of which being it seemed the only viable option. She also has some interesting (and quite probable!) views on why Kendra finally said enough is enough!
Tamara also enlightens viewers about some of the wedding hullabaloo. What I found most interesting is that, in previews, Brielle informs her mother that there are helicopters flying over the property. My first thought? Paparazzi. My second thought? This isn’t Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston’s wedding. Why is the paparazzi going to such extremes to snap a picture of a Bravolebrity couple? According to her blog, those helicopters don’t belong to invasive tabloid photographers, but Bravo cameras which are shooting all the aerial scenes for the wedding. Oh Kim, you had me fooled!
Oh reality television stars… you never cease to amaze me. One of the greatest things about reality TV is scathing, over the top, out of control ridiculous cat fights, arguments, and behind the back insults. It’s what differentiates reality from reality TV. See, I would never call someone a “dumb drag queen” … but in the wilds of reality TV, anything goes!
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our favorite reality TV insults. Below is some delightful footage of our hardworking stars doing what they do best – acting nutty and getting paid to do so! Let the memories come flooding back.
As if any of you were planning to watch the fifth season of Basketball Wives, I have some breaking news that may just send you over the edge completely. TMZ.com is reporting that three of the ladies (and yes, these may actually be considered ladies) are getting axed from the show. While nothing has been confirmed, VH1′s official statement is, “We don’t comment on casting until everything is final. Thanks for checking in.” However, when you hear who is getting the boot–and why–I doubt you’ll be surprised.
First to hit the road is Royce Reed. Why? I would say it’s obvious. First, a lot of the women, including Queen Bee Shaunie O’Neal herself, refuse to film with Royce. I am guessing that makes it more difficult to have a legitimate story line. She doesn’t go on the cast trips, isn’t invited to birthday dinners, and misses out on all the bottle throwing and brawls. Lucky. Second, due to a gag order that has been in place since 2009, she isn’t even allowed to say the name of the basketball player to whom she was never a wife. Sorry, Royce, but the writing seems to be on the wall for you.
Last night’s Around the World in 80 Plates found the chefs in Bologna, Italy. It’s a tad awkward because the teams remain on the same team. That means Liz Garrettand Jenna Johansen are going to have issues. After an immune Liz voted for Jenna in the last challenge, Jenna is confused. Wasn’t she Liz’s biggest cheerleader in the kitchen? Um, maybe Jenna is confusing “cheerleader” with “bitter Betty.” John Vermiglio reminds his remaining teammates that they are all great chefs…although some might be clumsier than others. #curseofthewhitebeans
The black team (Nookie Postal, Avery Purcell, Nick Lacasse, and the immune Nicole Lou) is riding the high of their win. Both teams arrive at the Parmigiano Reggiano Creamery where they get their first clue. They learn that the winner of this course will win $10,000. Each team must find three wheels of cheese which are marked with a triangle, signifying that the cheese hasn’t aged properly. No big deal, right? Both teams enter the creamery where they are greeted by walls and walls and walls (and WALLS!) of cheese. Right of the bat, the red team finds one marked wheel, then another. They are leaving with their third wheel as the black team finds their second. The members of the red team collect their next clue. They must deliver one wheel of cheese to Tamburini Salumeria in the historic district of Bologna. John is glad that Jenna and Liz have put aside their differences to work together.
