The Situation

#WeSayThanks To Reality Stars Giving Back During Coronavirus

Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.

#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.

#WeSayThanks

We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.

We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!

Jersey Shore Star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Slammed On Social Media For Coronavirus PSA

You would figure that people would be done beefing on social media during a global pandemic. Yet, that’s not the case. Even when people try to help and do “the right” thing by encouraging people to comply with CDC guidelines during the coronavirus outbreak, there are still haters.

The New Jersey government posted a PSA featuring Jersey Shore cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino. He encouraged people to social distance and stay safe, yet he still had some criticism in response.

Jersey Shore Star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino Is Out Of Jail

After eight months behind bars, Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is finally a free man and back in New Jersey with his wife Lauren Sorrentino.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation viewers watch the Sitch prepare for his prison stint and even saw the drive on the way to prison. Even though he hasn’t appeared in the most recent episodes (obviously), his wife Lauren has, and the Jersey Shore roomies have visited him and talked about how he’s been doing in jail. He has also called the cast and appeared via speakerphone in a few episodes.

Porsha Williams

The last couple of years have certainly been eventful for Porsha Williams. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star has weathered plenty of highs and lows. She got engaged to entrepreneur and hot dog king Dennis McKinley. Porsha was even awarded a spin-off special as she awaited the birth of her daughter. Finally, Pilar Jhena McKinley, also known as “PJ,” made her debut on March 22.

Porsha is now in a position that is familiar to several Housewives across the franchise–financial trouble. Teresa Giudice, Sonja Morgan, and Dorit Kemsley have all dealt with money woes. Jersey Shore’s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is currently serving a prison sentence for failing to pay income taxes between 2010 and 2012 on $8.9 million dollars.

Snooki Says The Situation Is Having “Time Of His Life” In Jail

Anyone who watched Jersey Shore: Family Vacation can see that Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has truly changed for the better. He was completely sober. He was completely faithful to his now-wife Lauren Sorrentino. He really was a completely different person than the guy we met during Jersey Shore’s initial run.

Even the abs were gone. Instead of drugs and alcohol, The Situation turned to pasta and funfetti cake for comfort. He truly seemed like a kinder, gentler soul. Nevertheless, he did the crime and now he’s doing the time. And it’s not like he’s the only reality star with tax issues. Teresa Giudice, Joe Giudice, and Abby Lee Miller have served jail time for similar offenses. But, apparently, he’s having a great time behind bars. Or at least he is according to Snooki.

Mike-Sorrentino-The-Situation The Situation

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has had an eventful couple of years. In April 2017, the star was charged with falsifying records and tax evasion. This stemmed from his failure to pay income taxes on 8.9 million in earnings between 2010 to 2012.

Getting into tax trouble is a mistake that several reality stars make. Case in pointReal Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Giudice and his wife Teresa Giudice. What is going on in New Jersey?

Instagram Roundup: Teresa Giudice, Stassi Schroeder, Andy

It felt like there were Real Housewives meetups happening all over the country this week. Or at least that’s what it seemed like when I scroll through my Instagram feed. Kandi Burruss supported Beverly Hills Housewife Erika Jayne at her Atlanta concert. Potomac Housewives Gizelle Bryant hung out with Real Housewives of Atlanta OG NeNe Leakes. Warning: they applied way too much airbrush to their IG photo. Cynthia Bailey left the ATL to hang out with Dorinda Medley in New York City.

Bravo worlds collided when Vanderpump Rules cast members Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark spent time with (the remaining) Summer House stars Kyle Cooke, Carl Radke, and Amanda Batula.

Real Housewives of Dallas stars Stephanie Hollman and Brandi Redmond shared photos hanging with their kids. Meanwhile, their costar Cary Deuber shared a photo of her face all marked up and ready for a cosmetic procedure. Orange County Housewife Shannon Beador followed her lead. Shannon posted a photo of herself getting some cosmetic enhancements. This is a social media trend that I just don’t understand.

Captain Lee Rosbach and Katie Chastain attended an event in Florida with Below Deck alum Connie Arias. Josiah Carter shared a picture of himself  Ashton Pienaar, Ross Inia, and Adrian Martin. Meanwhile, the two most controversial cast members (who haven’t been fired yet) Rhylee Gerber and Laura Betancourt took a selfie while kayaking.

Southern Charm stars Cameran Eubanks, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, and Whitney Sudler-Smith enjoyed some quality time. Naomie Olindo shared an “after” photo following some Botox injections. Kathryn Dennis slayed in a hot pink outfit at her brother’s wedding.

Teen Mom and star of the upcoming Ex on the Beach season Farrah Abraham channeled her inner Ariana Grande (who was inspired by Mean Girls) for a photo.

90 Day Fiance couples Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores, Ashley Martson and Jay Smith, and David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan let us all know that their relationships are still going strong with some photos.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member Melissa Gorga and her daughter Antonia posed for a photo with Jennifer Lopez.

Are you even a reality TV star if you don’t have tax problems? Obviously, that’s not an actual requirement, but it’s definitely a common occurrence. I’m looking at you, Joe Giudice & Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.

It is very rare for any reality star to actually be straight up about their financial issues. Usually, they employ the “deny, deny, deny” strategy. However, that is not the case with new Atlanta Housewife Shamari DeVoe and Ronnie DeVoe. They have no problem answering any question that comes their way.
