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!
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 from this week. Enjoy!

On a serious note, I am so thankful to you, dear readers…thankful for your loyalty to this site, for your comments, and yes, even for your critiques! I feel very grateful for a gig where I am able to watch awesomely bad reality television and share my snark, shock, opinions, and life with all of you. That said, I’m also thankful for the Charleston police for releasing what may be the most amazing cell phone video footage…ever. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again–I am so glad that I didn’t grow up in a time where technology was the norm. Unfortunately, Southern Charm’sThomas Ravenel didn’t either, yet it’s not working out for him at the moment!
By now, y’all know that my Bravo guilty pleasure is returning with T-Rav front and center (I never believed him when he said he was done!). You’ve also heard about his recent incident where ex-girlfriend/baby mama Kathryn Dennis’ stylist/baby-sitter accused Thomas of assault and claimed to have iPhone video footage to prove it. Well, Merry Christmas, y’all! The Post & Courier (my local paper) has said footage, and it’s every bit as fabulous as you’d hoped. There is yelling. T-Rav accuses Kathryn and her friend of smoking weed in his house. Kathryn reminds him multiple times that he fell into the pool with their baby (baby is fine!), and someone is fishing for a new designer bag. Did I mention that T-Rav is naked the entire time? Yes, Christmas certainly came early! I still have a weird affinity for Thomas, and I kind of wish that his business wasn’t blurred in the video. #sorrynotsorry Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to you and yours!

So, I received a text last night from my dear friend Will (not Folks–ew–a.k.a. T-Rav’s consultant turned nemesis) asking if I’d seen Thomas Ravenel’s latest campaign commercial. As many of you know, the Southern Charm Lothario and par for the course embarrassing South Carolina politician is running for United States Senate. He wrote, “PLEASE tell me you’ve seen T-Rav’s political ad. He’s holding his baby, talking about how he doesn’t ‘run away from his responsibilities.’ YouTube it. Totally worth it.” (Un)fortunately, I didn’t have to YouTube anything, as the seems to run on a constant loop on any given channel…and he was right–totally worth it.
In the ad, T-Rav goes on to say he’s done things he’s proud of as well as things he’s not proud of (I wonder in which category Southern Charm falls). Well, yesterday news erupted that made this campaign ad particularly hilarious…and it involved Thomas likely doing something he’s not proud of while holding his daughter…allegedly. According to a recent accusation, T-Rav drunkenly fell in his pool while holding his baby (she’s fine!) before assaulting girlfriend Kathryn Dennis’ stylist. Good times!

Full disclosure: I set out to loathe Southern Charm. I anticipated watching like one would a train wreck. In the beginning, I did, but then something strange happened. It was as if the Who's Who of WhoovilleCharleston various towns throughout my great state were able to change this Grinch. At first I couldn't stand the thought of Thomas Ravenel, having once watched him make out at the table next to me in some oyster bar years ago. Then, strangely, I began to feel sorry for him, as he clearly just wanted to find love and a proper Senator's wife. Finally, he grew on me, much like a wart or some other weird skin abnormality, but grew on me nonetheless. I honestly think he's going to be an amazing dad.
That said, I guess I'm going to have to start following politics, because T-Rav isn't planning on any more Bravo stints. Instead, he's hoping to revamp his political career with the hopes that people will remember his time on Southern Charm more than they do the time he served in prison. T-Rav certainly has a colorful past, doesn't he? He's like a modern day Ernest Hemingway without the works of literary genius.
