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
Tamra recently petitioned the court requesting that Simon's ban on the children being filmed be overturned. Simon claims that their two oldest children, fifteen-year-old Sidney and thirteen-year-old Spencer have been subjected to "social ridicule" by classmates after Tamra's often raunchy behavior on the show. Somehow I don't find that hard to believe in the least!
Last season Heather Dubrow sold her mansion for $16 million dollars and now she and husband Terry are building an even bigger spread! Heather hosted a hoe-down themed ground breaking party to celebrate construction on the new project and of course her co-stars attended!
"AMAZING day at our Groundbreaking party!#buildingournewhome #HoeDown #familyandfriends#RHOC," Heather tweeted.
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!
Tamra's three kids were once part of her storyline as the "hottest Housewife in the OC" in her dreams, but ever since their divorce Simon has refused to let the kids be filmed for the show. He claims they hate the show and that it's better for them to be kept away from the spotlight! I agree. Simon even refused to drop his position to permit his children to be seen on Tamra's OC Wedding.
Tamra, of course, desperately wants her kids on film and like all good famewhores, she's fighting Simon on the matter. Tamra filed a court order to petition a judge to overturn Simon's ban, stating: “Petitioner (Simon) is acting in bad faith. When he himself was on the show, prior to our separation, he had no issue at all in consenting to the children’s participating."
“Now that we are separated, the Petitioner refused to allow the kids to partake and has directly threatened legal action against the network," say documents obtained by Radar Online. When filming for Tamra's wedding Simon did threaten the network not to even show the kids in passing – allegedly.
When will reality stars learn? Alright, I realize the answer is "never," but throw me a bone, people! We have seen enough fame whores dying to have Bravo cameras following them around, but they don't give a second thought to the fact that the fleeting fifteen minutes will undoubtedly unleash all of the skeletons in their closets.
"That will never happen to me," they all say. Clearly these folks have heard of the Giudices, right? The public is always going to find out your business if you put it on television! Not shockingly, the newest reality stars to fall victim to this truth will be a new couple on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of Orange County.
