Summer may be over, but the Real Housewives are just heating up!
The original Real Housewives of New Jersey villain Danielle Staub is making her return to Bravo this week. The prostitution-whore mother of two will sit down with Andy Cohen on an all new episode of Watch What Happens Live September 8th!
Danielle is prepared to clear the air on some of the rumors surrounding her and her family as well as share her opinions on her former co-stars.
Speaking of those co-stars it must have been a busy week for the New Jersey court system! Two separate cases involving stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been postponed.
Earlier this year a brawl broke out at Kim D’s second Posche store opening involving members of the RHONJ cast. Details about the scuffle are all over the net, however having been at the event which was filmed for the show, we can’t comment.
Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita and Joe Gorga were all charged with assault following the brawl after a lawsuit was filed by Johnny Karagiorgis. The matter was due in court on September 5th.
NorthJersey.com reports that the charges of assault and terroristic threats have been adjourned and will no longer go before a criminal court judge. Instead, the trial will be heard in municipal court on September 26th.
The case against Johnny, filed as a result of charges being pressed by Jacqueline, Chris, and Joe, will also be adjourned and held in municipal court.
The brawl will reportedly be shown on an upcoming episode of RHONJ.
Teresa and Joe Giudice were slated to stand trail in Newark, NJ on October 8th after being indicted last month on 39-counts of federal fraud and tax charges. However, the couple will now appear in court on February 24th, 2014 after lawyers for both sides petitioned for a continuance.
Teresa and Joe both plead not guilty to the charges against them. However, if convicted, Teresa and Joe could each face decades behind bars. Joe even faces being deported to Italy if he is found guilty of just one of the 39 counts in the indictment as it emerged last month that he is not a US citizen.
Joe is still set to stand trial in October for using his brother’s identification to get a new license while his own was suspended due to a DUI. He can face up to 10 years in prison for those charges, alone.
It is no secret that The Real Housewives have their fair share of financial trouble. This time around it is the former Real Housewives of Miami star Karent Sierra. As we reported a few months ago, two of Karent’s properties were being foreclosed upon by their lending agents. Unfortunately, this rumor became a sad reality after her 1,200 square foot property was ordered to auction by a judge. The home, which is co-owned by her mom, was appraised for a mere $137,089.
Florida Community Bank was also awarded a judgment against Karent in the amount of $1.05 million dollars for back interest, principal, and fees attached to the home. Yikes…
Filming for season six of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is currently underway and when the cameras start rolling, the drama always seems to intensify!
A fight involving a couple of supporting castmembers broke out on Thursday night, and according to TMZ, cast member Brandon DeShazer, Kenya Moore’s assistant, caught the worst of the RHOA brawl.
Witnesses told TMZ that Apollo Nida, Phaedra Parks’ husband, “violently attacked” Brandon at an event being filmed for the show.
Apollo allegedly needed to be restrained by seven crewmembers before withdrawing.
The confrontation reportedly stems from Apollo’s anger and frustration after Brandon and Kenya allegedly went back on their promise to produce a workout video featuring Phaedra, and instead made their own, leaving Phaedra out of the mix.
Phaedra and Apollo have since gone on to produce their own series of workout DVDs entitled Phine Body.
Kandi Burruss’s hitmaker show, The Kandi Factory, is no more. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star confirmed the news on Twitter, stating that her spin-off show would not be coming back for another season.
The show followed Kandi as she helped aspiring artists jumpstart their dreams of success in the music industry. Kandi is currently engaged to Todd Tucker. Could there be a wedding spin-off in her future?
One Atlanta Housewife who does have a wedding spin-off is Nene Leakes. Are you counting down the days until , I Dream of NeNe: The Wedding premieres? Well so am I! Catch the video promo for the show below!
The show hits Bravo on Tuesday, September 17.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars Adrienne Maloof and Dr. Paul Nassif have finally put their divorce behind them.
“We recently reached an agreement on all outstanding issues related to our divorce settlement and all pending litigation,” they told People Magazine in a joint statement.
Adrienne and Paul are “happy to be moving forward with our lives in a positive way, not only individually, but as co-parents,” they say. “This is a new beginning for each of us.”
“Our first priority is our children’s well-being and happiness,” they add. “As their parents and advocates that is our goal. Our children are our most important treasures and need to be treated with the respect and privacy they deserve. … We appreciate the good wishes we continue to receive from our supporters around the world.” Adrienne and Paul filed for divorce in August 2012 after announcing their separation one month earlier. They reached an initial settlement in November 2012.
This Roundup is winding down and so is the fifth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, as well as its ratings! The former ratings powerhouse took a hit with only 1.8 million viewers tuning in. Perhaps the season five reunion, which was filmed last week, will hike up the ratings.
The only guest a Real Housewife typically brings with her to a reunion taping is her hairdresser. However, for Teresa Giudice an extra guest pass was needed.
According to Wetpaint, Teresa brought her legal ace Henry Klingeman with her to the taping.
“Teresa wants to clear her name, but she’s extremely limited in what she can talk about,” a source told the site. “It’s very frustrating for her.”
Rumor has it that Dr. Venus Nicolino, the psychologist who tried to help Teresa and Joe Gorga mend their relationship on the group retreat, also attended the taping.
