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
Please spare me. I used to be a gym, tan, laundry fanatic. No, I didn't go to the gym or tan obsessively, but adored the drunken fools of the Jersey Shore who did. I still find myself saying "cabs are heeyah" on the rare occasion I take a taxi somewhere. Of course, for the most part, those crazy kids are all grown up (kind of) and having children of their own. We should all be very afraid!
The most recent parenthood convert is DJ Pauly D who is embroiled in a legal battle with the mother of his five-month-old daughter Amabella. What kind of hybrid name is that? She is a precious baby though!
Amanda Markert is not happy over the unwanted media attention that Pauly D has brought her way since he shared that he's the father of Amanda's daughter, Amabella. The mother of his child took to Twitter to share her frustration over all that has transpired this week and it sounds like Pauly is the one reveling in all the press coming his way. I mean, he certainly hasn't been on our radar since Jersey Shore came to an end…
Amanda defended herself, sharing that the only person she told about her baby's paternity is Pauly himself. He's the one who ran to TMZ, etc, to give them the headlines and drag her through the mud. Pauly's even now claiming that Amanda is using him for fame. But if you read this woman's Twitter (which is now protected), she does not want any part of the spotlight.
Yesterday it was reported that the two are locked in a custody battle and Pauly believes baby mama Amanda Markert is unfit so he wants full custody. He's trying to get a Las Vegas judge to decide in his favor, meanwhile Amanda filed a custody suit in New Jersey!
The former Jersey Shore star also believes Amanda is an unstable fameho who was looking to get knocked up so she could score 18 years of child support. Supposedly supporting this is a photo she posted of five-month-old daughter Amabella (WTH with that name, people?!) surrounded by hundred dollar bills. And some tweets she posted announcing she just wants like soooo many baby clothes and costumes (COSTUMES people?!) for her baby girl.
Now the former VIP Hooters waitress (seriously people?!) is trying to sell some text messages allegedly from Pauly in which he tried to convince Amanda to have an abortion and said he would pay for it.
Just yesterday Pauly D announced he was the proud papa of a five-month-old girl. The mama of whom is a one night stand Vegas hookup!
The baby mama in question is named Amanda Markertaccording to TMZ. She's a Hooters waitress who also has another kid. And therein lies the problem – the former Jersey Shore star claims the 25-year-old Amanda is using him for money and he wants custody of daughter Amabella. Pauly believes that Amanda is unfit based on both her occupation and her double single mother status!
Both Pauly and Amanda have filed court docs against each other filing for custody. Pauly has reportedly never met his daughter, but DNA tests confirm he is definitely the father – and he's looking for FULL custody. Amanda is of course also seeking full custody, plus demanding child support. Sources say Pauly is not contesting support as he wants to take care of his daughter, but he also wants a relationship with her. That's sweet.
Pauly (aka Paul DelVecchio) welcomed a baby girl recently with a former flame that he met in Las Vegas. He's not sharing the mom's name, but she does live in New Jersey with the baby. TMZ reports that Pauly's daughter is a few months old already.
Pauly shared, "I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."
Everyone starts a new year with good intentions, right? Even reality stars! While I'm sure they all have a bevy of things they'd like to improve upon (one would hope!) we thought we'd give them a little help in that department. Below are some of the New Year's Resolutions we wish some of our favorite reality stars would make.
Kim Kardashian: 'Please let my mom leave me alone – I resolve to try and say no to her and stop putting all my embarrassing and indecent moments on TV. I really don't want to have to pull a baby out of my vagina on Keeping Up With The Kardashians like Kourtney did. Does being pregnant mean my child has already sold its soul to E!? I hope not. And I resolve to let being pregnant get more media coverage than that icky divorce. Hopefully my next TV wedding will be less of a mess.'
We really, really hope ol' Kimmie Kakes embraces the notion of privacy. Especially less nudie pics on Twitter and less revealing clothing. We've already seen it all, anyway. #sextape #playboy
