NeNe Leakes has big things on the horizon as she prepares for her final season on Real Housewives Of Atlanta. It’s long been rumored that ratings-nabber, NeNe is the highest paid Housewife in the Housewives franchise, and as she reluctantly agreed to do one final season of RHOA there comes a rumor that she’s earning more than a million dollars! But is it even more?
“I was not offered 1.5, let’s be clear, yeah, it’s a lot nicer than that,” NeNe said coyly, adding that despite the huge financial gains she’s ready to move on from Housewives.
This time, the drama in question, is about next week’s episode. As you can see from the clip below, Jacqueline is meeting The Troublemint Twins Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea for the first time when she hears that people have been calling her “crazy” behind her back. Jacqueline learns that it is Dina Manzo, of the Zen Manzos on Cuckoo Hairless Cat Hill. Well, apparently that was all lies and thankfully we have blessed purveyor of truth Jacs to set us all straight.
Quick question: is being like a totally honest and truthful person but also being in court for bankruptcy fraud, kind of like saying you live within your means and don’t care about material things but filing for bankruptcy, and ending up in court for bankruptcy fraud? Just checking before we dive in…

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 family photos from the past few weeks.
Melissa Gorga has remained pretty quiet about her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice, and her husband Joe’s recent legal troubles. After they were each sentenced to prison on Thursday — she received 15 months, he got 41 months — I kept expecting to hear something from Melissa regarding the entire situation.
Last week, Teresa Giudice learned her fate on multiple fraud charges — 15 months behind bars for her and 41 months for her husband Joe Giudice.
Luckily the judge showed some leniency for the parents of four daughters and are allowing the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars to stagger their sentences, allowing one parent to remain home with their daughters while the other one serves their time.
Teresa is up first and has to report to prison by January 5, 2015. So as she prepares to spend 2015 — plus a little of 2016 — away in prison, she received some advice from someone you may have never seen coming: Orange Is the New Black author Piper Kerman.
Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice spoke out for the first time since their prison sentences were handed down on Thursday. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars sat down with Andy Cohen for a special edition of Watch What Happens Live. And let me summarize it for you: Teresa thinks she’s a victim in this, y’all! A VICTIM. Nope, she hasn’t learned a single lesson.
Andy opens the show trying to keep the twinkle out of his eye recapping the Giudices’ federal prison sentences: Joe will sit for 41 months and Teresa for 15 months. He says that he wishes he were seeing them under happier circumstances and the mood is grim, as expected. Andy starts off asking how they’re doing. Teresa says she feels like she’s numb and things feel surreal. “All I keep thinking about is my daughters.”
The drama surrounding the Giudice’s legal matters continues to unfold. Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Teresa Giudice landed herself 15 months. During the course of the Giudice’s fraud indictment it emerged that despite living in the US for the majority of his life, and being married to a US citizen, Joe isn’t one himself, and therefore faces deportation after he serves his time.
Joe’s immigration attorney, Jerard Gonzalez, says that proceedings for a possible deportation will not begin until after Joe’s sentence is completed, however experts connected to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said that officials could decide to expedite proceedings at any time – even while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still behind bars!
“They could come pick him up tomorrow. I doubt they would do that,” says immigration attorney Edward Shulma (who is not connected to Joe’s case).“They want them to do most of the time.”
Dina is ready to move on from the Florida trip too. She kept her blog short and sweet this week, poking fun at Amber Marchesefor her victim complex and asking fans to send positive and warm thoughts to Joe and Teresa Giudice.
