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!
Below is the 2013 legal round up.
Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots
Teresa Giudice and husband Joe took a little time away from hanging with this daughters this holiday season to do a little product promotion.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars got their hustle on yesterday at an autograph signing event in NJ. Teresa was celebrating her new Fabellini that is being produced and imported from Italy. She shared on Twitter, "Joe and I on our way to Bayway Liquors 639 Bayway Ave. in Elizabeth for the new Fabellini imported from Italy. Who is coming?". Plenty of fans did show up – and even Joe got in on the posing for photographs with fans.
The show is currently filming its new season, but it didn't look like cameras were on hand to film. I'm going to assume that they're taking a week or so off for the holidays.
If you look through the gallery, Teresa's jacket has the Fabellini name and logo blinged out on the back of it. New clothing line coming to an episode near you?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Above: Tamera Mowry-Housleyshared, "Mommy and Daddy on the Ferris Wheel. Aden was unenthused. He didn't like being squished by the both of us."
Yesterday Joe was spotted in court alone so attorneys could determine whether or not his identity fraud trial should take place before or after his federal trial for fraud. Decisions, decisions! Noticeably absent (as she always is) was Teresa!
“They are having problems. It is almost impossible for a marriage to survive all this stress,” a friend confides to Naughty But Nice Rob. “We are praying for them, but it does not look good."
Melissa said the decision to do the holiday solo wasn't an indicator of more problems with Teresa Giudice! "We honestly haven't spent Thanksgiving together. We try to do Easter and Christmas with them," Melissa told NY Daily News. "Joe and I usually go away for Thanksgiving or spend it with my family."
One of our eagle-eyed readers sent us the news this morning. She and her husband were out this morning and witnessed Joe pulled over in his black Maserati. "We drove right by the "inspection" pull-over area by the Montville Police Department. There were two police officers checking inspection/registration stickers on cars, if you didn't have one, they pull you over. There were about 5 police offers in the "inspection" van."
In the photo, you can't really make out if it's a man or a woman. It's someone in a hat and sunglasses, but that's all you can see. It could be Teresa for all we know, but the fan is adamant, "It was DEFINITELY not Teresa,”
