RHONJ’s Rich Wakile Too Famous To Pay His Landscaper?

First, let me apologize for SO MANY Real Housewives of New Jersey posts this week!  Hot on the heels of the season finale and because of the frenzy surrounding the upcoming reunion shows, they are EVERYWHERE in the media right now!

Well, we now know why Rich Wakile was spotted mulling around the courthouse in his beach couture recently!  It seems that the Real Househusband of New Jersey is not only hoping to get free clothes, but he thinks he's so famous he should get free landscaping, to boot! 

Rich was ordered to pay an outstanding bill owed to Natural Paradise Landscaping this week by a judge in the Passaic County court.  The owner of the company chatted with Radar Online and shared some pretty outlandish conversations he had with Richie while he was attempting to collect the debt. 


Natural Paradise did work for a full year without being paid, reportedly.  The owner, Louie Khalil, cut off their service in fall of 2011 and tried to get Wakile to pay up.  "I saw him and told him to pay the bills, we kept asking him to pay, we sent him the bill and when we would call him he would just say 'f**king sue me' and hang up on me."  Khalil adds, "He would say to me 'Who the f**k do you think you are? I'll smash your face if I ever hear you ask me for money again".

So, the company filed suit and won. It should be noted that Rich filed a countersuit, but the judge tossed it out.

Right after being ordered to pay the $814.34, Rich wrote out a check for $815 and went on his merry way. 

Has reality TV fame gone to Rich's head?
