We were momentarily distracted by his abs until TMZ revealed that Michael A. Cerussi III was accused of rape when he was in college. When Michael, who at 34 is almost a decade younger than BitchyBethenny, was attending Union College in New York another student accused him of raping her.
The victim took her complaints to the school who took them very seriously and expelled Michael. The alleged victim never filed a police report but instead opted to sue Michael in civil court. In return Michael sued both the girl and the school for defamation.
The talk show host was spotted on vacation over the New Year's holiday and on New Year's Eve the two were making out. "Bethenny and a date were there with a group of friends" and it was "definitely romantic," a spy shared with E! News. "She seemed relaxed with him and having a great time. At the stroke of midnight, they shared a passionate kiss and proceeded to make out in front of everyone."
In Touch Weekly did some investigating and discovered that the new beau is Michael “Mac” Cerussi III, and he's pretty hot! The two reportedly exchanged kisses at Mondrian South Beach.
Well, despite your best efforts to change the channel every time Bethenny Frankel's talk show comes on television, it looks like the show will back for a second season. Guess what? You're not the only ones not watching…the ratings have been consistently bad.
However, Bethenny, as you know, doesn't leave quietly, and many insiders are speculating that she'll return despite all the negativity that has plagued the show. Of course it will.
Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests.
Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!
