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!
Sharon suffered what is believed to be a stroke on Monday, and was found in her NY home before being rushed to the hospital. She unfortunately lapsed into a coma yesterday afternoon, with Todd by her side, before passing Tuesday night.
“Today has been a tough day. Our family has suffered a terrible loss. Sharon was the best mother in-law! She was fun, energetic, loving, & caring. I loved how she liked to get up & go all the time,” Kandi said in a statement. “She would get you in check one minute & give you a hug the next minute. She still had a young spirit. It’s unbelievable that she’s gone.”
There was no shortage of shade and tension on Real Housewives of Atlanta this week. Kenya Moore spent her on-camera time with her Aunt Lori and Claudia Jordan this week, but it didn’t stop her co-stars from talking ish about her. Like a good little bravolebrity, Kenya’s firing back in her RHOA blog.
First, Kenya gave a shout out to her Aunt Lori, “The one constant in my life is that I can count on my Aunt Lori to dispense sound advice. She is always the neutral party, who is often the moral compass of the show. And my take away is forgiveness should not come with conditions, neither should apologies.”
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media 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 this week. Enjoy!
Above: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Yolanda Foster has been sharing pictures of her “health journey” in Seoul, South Korea. She captioned the photo above: “I guess you fight through the bad days to earn the best days of your life. #LymeDiseaseAfterMath #RebuildingTheBrain #StemcellTherapy #MedicineOfTheFuture.”
If Cynthia Bailey wants to celebrate bringing sexy back without NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams around, I say, so be it. I definitely don’t blame her and I certainly don’t think she needs to defend herself. Nevertheless Cynthia took to her blog to explain her decision to not invite NeNe and Porsha to her party on this week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Short and sweet: “I did not invite NeNe since we no longer were friends.”
Cynthia shared, “I chose not invite Porsha to my Ebony Magazine party since she spoke negatively about me on WWHL. I was under the impression we had always gotten along without any real issues. The first time I met Porsha was with NeNe at the home of her grandfather, Hosea Williams. I was excited to meet the granddaughter of such a legendary historical black leader. I was impressed by her strength and commitment to her grandfather’s legacy. I’m led to believe Porsha’s unkind remarks in her interview were directed toward me because I did not support her actions at the reunion.”
NeNe Leakes kept her the Real Housewives of Atlanta blog short – but not so sweet – this week. I imagine she’ll have a lot more to say when she’s back in Atlanta on next Sunday’s episode. I can hardly wait.
Along with a link to her blog, NeNe tweeted, “There is no need 4 me 2 waste words on people who deserve my silence. So I’ll let you b the judge … #TheThirstIsREAL.” NeNe silent? Only in my dreams! Of course those people include Cynthia Bailey, Apollo Nida, and Kenya Moore.
NeNe thanked those who supported her in Las Vegas, adding, “We’ve got one woman working in Vegas at Zumanity doing something different and out of the box, while the others sit around a bar to gossip and lie.”
Cynthia Bailey‘s marriage to Peter Thomas almost never happened, but happen it did – and it’s been causing Cynthia grief ever since. Apparently that is partially The Real Housewives Of Atlanta’s fault. Of course, it’s also NeNe Leakes‘ fault. Speaking of which, Cynthia says NeNe’s days as star of RHOA are numbered – well that’s it, it’s time for a reality TV divorce!
Regarding their marriage, Peter has threatened to cheat, wanted a love nest, gets in fights with her friends, can’t keep a business afloat, her family can’t stand him, and – and! – when Cynthia had fibroids the dude could not cope! Cynthia says this season her marriage has improved now that NeNe is out of her life, but she and Peter still continue to have a bevy of financial problems – he declared bankruptcy, Bar One is currently in the process of being relocated after the owner of the building was foreclosed on, and Peter can’t afford to put gas in his Mercedes.
