Oh, Ramona! Real Housewives of New York viewers are used to seeing Ramona Singer sometimes behave…well, rudely. It is part of her charm. Look at the way she always insists on getting the best room on RHONY getaways and orders the staff to help her unpack her belongings.
Ramona also has an issue with remembering the names of other Bravo celebrities that she has already met. And word on the street is that Real Housewives of Potomac star Gizelle Bryant has been the most recent victim of Ramona’s selective memory.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is heading to Italy soon with her four daughters to visit her husband, Joe Giudice. Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to fraud charges in 2014, and both went to
prison camp. Joe, who was sentenced to 41 months in prison, never became an American citizen.
Joe was taken into ICE custody when he was done serving his prison time, and an immigration judge ordered that Joe be deported to Italy. Teresa’s husband appealed the ruling. Joe opted to leave the ICE detention center where he was held for nearly a year and head to Italy, where he will wait for the final decision on his appeal.
This is not entirely unexpected. Real Housewives of New York is filming right now, minus one melodramatic humanitarian. Yes, viewers will need to find the strength to move on without Bethenny Frankel dominating every scene she is in.
You won’t find Luann de Lesseps crying in the corner over the loss of Bethenny. Especially after last season. Luann has often been the target of Bethenny’s multiple mood swings and vice versa. Fans will also be introduced to new ladies that will inevitably be reduced to showing audiences if they
crack under pressure have the right stuff. Good luck, Leah McSweeney! Now Luann shares her thoughts on life without Bethenny. You can take off your sunglasses for this one, because it gets a little shady.
Wow Lauren, did things get too hot? It looks like Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is finally in a good mood. Why else would she send words of glad tidings towards the man who essentially gave us all petty goals? Yes, Lala is talking about 50 Cent, again.
Someone must have gotten in trouble! Lala has given us songs. Lala has given us face. And Lala given us way too many details. It was those details that sparked a major row between the former (?) SUR hostess and Fofty. Fiancé Randall Emmett was dragged into it as well. He ultimately wound up in the hospital for
being a scaredy cat chest pains. The incident was resolved after Randall paid an outstanding debt to Fofty. All was well in the land until Lala started talking smack about Fofty to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Now in an effort to keep Lala quiet put the whole thing to bed, Lala and Her Chins Man have some new words for the entrepreneur.
Is it Sunday night yet? The anticipation is killing me waiting for Andy Cohen’s interview with Joe and Teresa Giudice. The
estranged couple hasn’t even seen each other since he was released from an ICE detention center, yet they are reuniting via video chat for this very public interview. Don’t get me wrong, I’m nosy as hell and I can’t wait to watch, but I can’t help feeling like they should have met up in private first.
Previously, Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga said that Teresa should be prepared for a divorce. Teresa herself said that she wouldn’t stay with Joe if he gets deported. She also said that she “wasn’t sure” if she was still in love. Those comments and the hand-holding with the 26-year-old man in Miami and New York, really aren’t adding up to happy reconciliation for the Giudices.
Well, by now you’ve heard the news that Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice has been deported to Italy. Teresa Giudice’s husband made several attempts to avoid exactly this, being sent away from his family. As soon as Joe finished serving a 41 month prison sentence after being found guilty of fraud, he was immediately transported to an ICE detention facility. Joe’s little problem about not becoming a legal citizen in his youth wound up being a bigger problem than jail in his adulthood.
Joe repeatedly requested to wait out the court’s decision in his own home, though he was denied. Then Joe pleaded with the courts to let him travel to Italy while the latest appeal is still pending in court. Thankfully for Joe, he was granted one wish. Last week a skinny and non-juicy Joe boarded an airplane and traveled back to his homeland. A few snaps of Joe have appeared on social media, courtesy of his daughters. Now Joe is speaking out for the first time since his long-awaited release.
Rumors have been swirling about Teresa Giudice and her
estranged husband Joe Giudice for years months. She was seen holding hands with a 20-something-year-old named Blake Schreck… more than once. Sources claimed that Teresa barely visited Joe in jail. Reports surfaced that Joe’s mother and brother gave Teresa the cold shoulder during a court appearance in response to all of the cheating rumors.
Now, Joe is out of the ICE detention center and living the skinny life in Italy while he waits on the deportation decision. Teresa and their four daughters haven’t visited yet, but there are some major plans on the agenda. Teresa and Joe will sit down for an interview with Andy Cohen.
Bravo has certainly given us some polarizing characters to deal with. People you either love or hate, with not much grey area. The shows we watch often celebrate poor behavior and even reward those who may commit crimes. We enjoy discussing the fallout of DUIs or court cases. But what about the folks behind these somewhat messy characters? The network execs who run the shows? One of those guys used to be Andy Cohen. He was the Executive Vice President of Development and Talent at Bravo until 2013.
People have a lot of thoughts on Andy, now the host of Watch What Happens Live. Several of the core Bravo franchise programs used to be fun and light. Viewers appreciated the luxury and escaping from their own lives for an hour. But as the years wore on, a few of the shows became darker. Many fans felt like horrible behavior was encouraged and fingers were pointed in Andy’s direction. Kathy Griffin used to have a reality show on Bravo and she has pointed some fingers at Andy too. Now she’s speaking out about her time on the network and how Andy performed in the boss role.
