NEWS – Reality TV Weekly Round-Up!

Because reality stars (past and present) thrive on attention of any kind, they’re always in the press. Good or bad! Here’s a round-up of what’s been happening as of late.

The former Real Housewives of DC stars have had an eventful week. Perhaps they’re coordinating press releases for maximum exposure!

Up first, Mary Amons filed for divorce from husband Rich Amons. She announced her split from her husband of 26 years on Facebook! “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my twenty-six year marriage. While I have the deepest respect for my husband and wish him the very best, we have grown apart,” Mary wrote.

She then added that she wants privacy during this difficult time – which is why she publicized it on Facebook, right? What this means is that every single member of the former RHODC cast is now a single lady. Perhaps Bravo can do a former Real Housewives dating show?


Next up, Tareq Salahi continues his desperate quest for attention, relevance, and wealth. After having his lawsuit against Neal Schon and ex-wife Michaele Salahi thrown out of court by a Virginia judge, the famewhore remains undaunted. And try, try again he will!

RumorFix obtained court documents stating Tareq is proceeding with the suit, but he has removed Michaele’s name from the list of defendants. She doesn’t have any money anyway! “Tareq is taking her off because he wants to move forward with his life and wants to wrap up this divorce as soon as possible,” a source reveals. “And by taking her off, he can move forward with the divorce, get the divorce done and finish the financial obligations that Journey interfered with, and settle with them in due time.” I’m sure he will prevail!

Puck, on the right

Anyone remember Puck from season three of Real World. Most of you were probably still in diapers (that’s a compliment) when the original outrageous famewhore made his mark on television history. Well, Puck aka David Rainey looks like hell is in the news again. And no surprise, he’s been arrested! The former reality trainwreck was arrested last month on two felony charges and is still behind bars according to RadarOnline.

The now 43-year-old was charged with Battery on a Person and Stalking/Violation of a Restraining Order involving his wife, Betty. Puck was booked at the Van Nuys Jail in California where he is being held on $225,000 bail. This is not the first arrest for the caring and considerate gentleman. Maybe MTV will spring him loose?

That’s Justin on the far right.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richard‘s ladysitter, Justin Sylvester has found himself included in the cast of an all-new reality show about the Beverly Hills nannies. Which is also the title, according to Zap2it. Wait – nannying Kyle counts? Beverly Hills Nannies will air on ABC Family this summer and it will feature a whole host of nannies to the Beverly Hills’ elite – including some celebs. Will you be watching? I won’t be!

Apparently Jon Gosselin has a new lady love. The dad of a zillion has teamed up with a single mom of three, Liz, and now is the dad of 11 zillion! “We’ve been dating for about four months and people might think it’s crazy to add her three kids to the mix, but it has been great,” the former Jon & Kate Plus 8 star tells Star Magazine. “She loves sports and really understands being a parent and my kids love her.” Kate’s not gonna like this!

Moving on, Linda Hogan is still dating a toddler twenty-something friend of her son, Nick. And now she is talking marriage! Linda’s beau, Charley is now 23 and no surprise, he’s not interested in marriage just yet! “We’re just taking it a day at a time, we’re like everyone else,” Linda told Access Hollywood. The couple is currently examining their issues on  VH1’s Couples Therapy. Not to worry, even though they’re not ready to walk down the aisle – the pair is still very much a couple! “It’s exclusive, it has been ever since we met. He was my soul mate from the beginning.” Uh-huh.

Finally, last but not least, Keyshia Cole will be returning to reality TV in an all-new show on BET. Deadline reports that Keyshia Cole: Family First (Working Title) is a six-part series featuring the singer as she juggles being a wife to NBA player Daniel Gibson and mother of a two-year-old son, with her career as a musician and businesswoman. The series is expected to debut this fall!
