2014 was a year for law breaking, court cases, tax issues, and bankruptcies from our favorite reality TV stars.
Below, we’ll update you on who owes what, whose divorce is a mess, who is suing, who is being sued, and who’s going to prison! In addition to adding several new cases to the rosters of law-dabbling reality stars, some stars continued to battle existing cases – such as Jacqueline Laurita‘s and Sonja Morgan‘s bankruptcies.
Meanwhile other stars finally resolved long-standing issues. Undoubtedly the biggest legal drama of the year was Teresa Giudice finally facing a judge and being sentenced to 15 months in prison after pleading guilty to 4 counts of fraud, which all began way back in 2009 when the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star filed for bankruptcy for an incredible $13 million dollars of debt!
While Teresa is trying to make the holidays as normal as possible, she’s worried about Joe managing everything in her absence. Rumors of divorce have swirled, but a source says Teresa and Joe’s marriage is fine, they are just trying to juggle the stressful situations they’re currently dealing with – mainly Teresa’s worries that Joe won’t be able to fulfill the full-time parenting role.
Happy Holidays indeed for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jim Marchese and his company Mortgage Now! Remember at the reunion when Jim bragged about bringing in $8.5 million dollars this year alone? Yeah, he was NOT EXAGGERATING, y’all! I know, I had to sit down, too.
It seems that although Jim seemed a little famewhorey and nutty at first, the guy is probably the only one on the show who REALLY is rolling in the dough and can afford to live the lifestyle these shows were meant to portray!
Amber recently dished about the possibility of a hiatus — shocker… she hates the idea – and her current thoughts on her co-stars.
Amber said her life is back to normal, which means free of drama, since filming ceased. “Normally there’s no drama in my life,” said the aspiring actress who is married to drama queen Jim Marchese. <side eye> “I’m a very focused mom and a very focused wife … that is where I’m happiest. I’m a homebody. I love being home with my children and honestly that’s my favorite job in the world.”
I watched this Bobby Ciasulli interview/video over a week ago and meant to transcribe it to share the juicier bits with you guys, but time slipped away and I never got around to it. Bobby dishes on everything from how they all landed gigs on The Real Housewives of New Jersey to his friendship with Jim Marchese and his wife Amber and so much more!
I’ll admit that Bobby’s version of events is interesting and worth a watch. So, if you find yourself with some down time this weekend and you love hearing the “behind the scenes” tidbits, I’m sharing the full video below!
Dina Tweeted this morning: “It’s all good. Once I saw Amber go down on a coke bottle in AC I knew there was nothin much to c.” And then she added, “Oops did I just type that? Yeah I did. They shouldn’t take my kindness for weakness!”
Dina Manzo isn’t going to be a happy camper when she gets wind of the things that he has to say in a new interview. Jim made some crazy accusations, including that Dina reportedly wanted to watch Jim and Amber having sex.
