Color me surprised (or not given that this is reality TV) but Abby Lee Miller filed for bankruptcy in December 2010.
Luckily for Abby her Dance Moms revenue saved her – she sure owes Kelly and Christi now. Back when Abby filed she alleged assets of $325k including her dance studio, but was underwater for more than $400k.
According to TMZ, most of Abby's debt stemmed from mortgages and taxes. She had a $245k mortgage that went into default and an additional $106k debt attached to her dance studio.
Part of me feels sorry for Dr. Jenn Berman because it seems she bit off more than she can chew with her "celebrity" "clients" this season. Meaning some of these so-called celebrities are actual messes who need like for-real therapy and not the made for TV Couples Therapy kind.
First of all, Dr. Jenn insists that although Taylor's behavior was terrible it ended up having some positives.
"When they went bowling, unfortunately things got a little out of control, which was unexpected and hasn’t happened before. In a certain way it was unfortunate but it ended up giving me really important material to work with in therapy because I got to see a side of Taylor in particular that was really important for me to see and to address. You’ll see the therapy that resulted out of this in episode three and it was really a huge breakthrough."
New TNT reality show Private Lives of Nashville Wives promises to be explosive and insane. Featuring six high-profile ladies who are either married to country music royalty or lead their own very dynamic lives, this show will follow in the footsteps of their Real Housewives counterparts.
We already introduced you to wives Erika Page White, Cassie Chapman, Jenny Terrell, Sarah Davidson and identical twins Ana Fernandez and Betty Malo, but the trailer for the first season was just unveiled.
Yes, if Kanye West gets his way, he and Kim Kardashian will honeymoon in space. Now, I normally ignore the ridiculousness that comes out of Kanye's mouth, but I'm all ears today. Someone seriously needs to make sure these two narcissists do, in fact, receive two tickets to outer space.
Two ONE WAY tickets. And they can take that hideous purse with them.
A source recently shared with Grazia magazine, "Kanye is obsessed with space and anything sci-fi – he's shot many spaceship-themed videos and he even considered training as an astronautical engineer. Now he is fixated on the idea of honeymooning in space." Yesss! Good riddance!
Last night we met Kenya's dad, who is just as strongly opinionated as she is. She defends his outspoken way, "I was excited to see my dad as I hadn’t seen him in years. My dad always speaks HIS truth. Sometimes it can be off-putting, polarizing, and misunderstood but underneath it all has a heart of gold and would do anything for his family. Sound familiar?".
Kenya also claims she can dish out shade and take it, too. She also defends her new car, "Oh and yes, I can take their [NeNe & Cynthia] jokes and their shade they throw out at me — it works both ways. Note to Cynthia, last I checked a brand new Bentley GTC is a $225,000 car so that must be a lot of ass…DVDs to sell! LOL! I’m blessed to have a dream car in my driveway and regardless of how or by whom it was purchased, I’m proud and blessed that I am self-made and can afford to drive whatever I please and my name is on the title."
Well, it seems that it's not just the Fresco Italian restaurant in Montclair, New Jersey that is disappointing members of the community for allowing Bravo to use it to film scenes for Real Housewives of New Jersey. Local fans of the show were also disappointed…not in the eatery, but in the women dining inside.
Last week, the restaurant posted (and then promptly deleted after negative feedback) some pictures of Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice eating at Fresco surrounded by lights and cameras. Fans who were able to catch the Facebook status before it was taken down rushed to the restaurant in hopes of seeing their favorite RHONJ ladies. You see where I'm going with this, right?
Phaedra Parks is still reeling over Chuck-gate. Lest you forget he accused her of being a member of the Big Homie Team. As it turns out the only thing big about Chuck is his forehead and his ego. He's actually more like a little homie, or as Phaedra tells Kandi Burruss: "bitesized brownies and a cocktail sausage." Ouch.
Kandi is shocked that Chuck would classify their relationship so falsely, I'm shocked her chunky little dog is eating Pringles. Seriously – what adult purchases Pringles? Phaedra wonders if Kandi's dog needs a Colt 45 to go with his "ghetto" snack. She also calls Chuck a pig. Because he is one.
