Teresa Giudice Forced To Sell Mansion As Bank Account Goes Empty Following Fraud Charges


RadarOnline.com:
For years, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice and her family lived a life of luxury, complete with a sprawling mansion, luxury cars and international travel. But now that her life of lies has come tumbling down since she and her husband Joe plead guilty to fraud and conspiracy charges last month, RadarOnline.com has learned that the money stream has dried up – and she could soon be forced to sell her house!

“Teresa has hardly any income coming in because of her guilty plea in the federal fraud and conspiracy case,” a source told Radar. “If it weren’t for the money she’s made from Real Housewives of New Jersey, she would be in serious financial trouble right now.”

“Her book sales have been very low, and Teresa hasn’t been offered any gigs for paid promotional appearances either,” the source continued. “It’s a foregone conclusion, Teresa absolutely will have to sell her beloved New Jersey mansion. She’s terrified she could end up homeless.”

As Radar has reported, the luxe-living reality TV will only be ordered to pay back $7,500 of the shocking $13 million debt they cited in a 2009 bankruptcy filing, and their creditors are angry about being stiffed.

“We just want the money she owes us,” an employee of the North Hudson IVF fertility clinic, one of the Giudices’ creditors, told Radar exclusively. Teresa, 41, was rumored to have undergone fertility treatments there in order to conceive youngest daughter Audriana, 4.

The Giudices owe the clinic $11,765.59 for their services, and the employee says the couple’s refusal to pay is simply unfair, insisting, “We’re just a company that helps people.”

However the bankruptcy documents, obtained by Radar, reveal that other companies lost much more. The couple has virtually stolen more than $1 million from Dime Savings Bank of Williamsburgh, nearly $2 million to the Community Bank of Bergen County, and more than $5 million from Wachovia Bank. Only the Giudices’ bankruptcy lawyers and trustee will receive payment.

Teresa could be facing 27 months in prison, while Joe could get 46 months hard time after pleading guilty to 41 counts of mail, wire, bank and bankruptcy fraud in March.

Deshawn Snow Calls NeNe Leakes "Dismissive and Offensive as Hell"


Wetpaint.com:
The battle of words between Real Housewives of Atlanta powerhouses NeNe Leakes and Kenya Moore wages on! Now, after one of the former Hotlanta gals decided to weigh in on the situation, Kenya responded by saying that NeNe doesn't possess enough "intellect" to match her. Ouch!

All About the Real Housewives has all the deets.

Season 1 old-timer Deshawn Snow took to Twitter to share her opinion on NeNe's behavior, writing, "For NeNe Leakes to weaponize mental health and constantly refer to Kenya Moore as 'crazy' is ableistic, dismissive and offensive as hell."

In case you are unfamiliar with the term, ableism is the act of discriminating against people who have disabilities. The word Deshawn was looking for is actually "ableist," not "ableistic," but you get the gist of what she was trying to say.

NeNe has repeatedly referred to Kenya as mentally unstable and has even mentioned that she forgets to take her medication before filming.

In response, Kenya tried to rationalize why NeNe — and all of her co-stars, for that matter — chooses to behave the way she does, explaining, "That's from fear and inadequacy. They don't have the intellect to take me on so they resort to basic name calling and slander."

If there's one thing Kenya is good at, it's hitting below the belt. You can criticize NeNe all day long, but we know how heated she gets when people call her anything less than smart.

Tamra Barney's 15-Year-Old Daughter Claims Her Reality TV Mom Is ‘Verbally & Emotionally Abusive,’ and She Also Forged Child’s Homework


RadarOnline.com:
Not only is Tamra Barney‘s ex-husband accusing the Real Housewives of Orange County star of child neglect, but Simon Barney also claims his three children are suffering at school because of their mother’s “high-profile” job and her eldest daughter says the reality TV star is “verbally and emotionally abusive.”

Simon says the kids are ridiculed and bullied, and in documents exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, he provides proof that they are often tardy for school — and Tamra was even accused of allegedly forging daughter Sophia‘s reading log by the 8-year-old’s teacher!

“These minor children are not going through the same issues as other minor children in their community. They are going through the same issues, exemplified with Respondent’s position in the spotlight. The children suffer from ridicule and bullying in school and isolation from their fellow peers,” the court documents filed on March 28 state.

“Respondent’s neglectful behavior is evident in Sophia’s school homework, which is often incomplete and her attendance record in school. Petitioner learned that Respondent may have forged Sophia’s school reading logs. This was brought to Petitioner’s attention by his daughter Sophia’s teacher, [redacted] and by Sophia herself.”

In particular, Tamra’s estranged 15-year-old daughter — who now lives solely with Simon at her own requestSidney claims her mother is verbally and emotionally abusive and her status in the public eye results in harassment from her teenage peers.

“Sidney continues to claim that her mother is verbally and emotionally abusive towards her and does not give her the attention she needs as a daughter,” the legal docs read.

“She further contends that Respondent’s behavior in the media causes her embarrassment and results in ridicule and harassment from her peers.”

Tamra has three children with Simon; Sidney, 15, Spencer, 13, and Sophia, 8.

Sonja Morgan Spazzes On Ramona Singer, Declares ‘You Couldn’t Handle A Day In My Life!’


RadarOnline.com:
Fireworks and fights are about to explode between the Real Housewives of New York City ladies on the upcoming episode.

In a surprising twist, Sonja Morgan and her BFF Ramona Singer end up in a heated blowup after Singer said some unkind words.

“You don’t have a lawsuit. You don’t have divorce. You don’t have a custody battle. You couldn’t handle a day in my life,” Morgan ranted to Singer as their co-star Aviva Drescher looked on.

Morgan continued to question her pal’s comments, which remain unknown to viewers.

“That’s just really low blow!” Morgan yelled.

“I’m keeping my sh*t together, and I need you to be a friend! You’re not a friend I want to be around.”

Meanwhile, Kristen Taekman became a victim of the “Singer stringer,” after trying to get involved in the other ladies’ drama.

In the clip, she scolds Singer for RSVP-ing and then not showing up to Heather Thomson’s 10-year anniversary party.

“You really should have said you weren’t coming,” Taekman said to Singer.

Singer got in her co-star’s face — clearly annoyed.

“Now you talk? Usually you just sit there and look pretty with a smile on your face. It’s none of your business,” Singer said.

That wasn’t the only veteran to scold new cast member Taekman.

“If you’re going to say you’re not going to get involved, then shut the f*ck up!” Drescher told her.

Kenya Moore Files Assault Charges Against Porsha Williams


Porsha's long proven that she's not the brightest bulb in the room. But letting a rabid instigator like Kenya Moore get to you to the point where you try to beat her up on national television? Well, there's just no excuse:
"Real Housewives of Atlanta" star Porsha Williams is a wanted woman ... as in we've learned there's a warrant out for her arrest.

ATL cops are going after Porsha over a fight she had with Kenya Moore on the set of the show.  Porsha allegedly attacked Kenya, who filed a police report. The show has the raw footage, and that was enough to charge Porsha with misdemeanor battery -- thus the warrant.

Porsha's lawyer, Joe Habachy, tells TMZ she will surrender Thursday.

We're also told Porsha plans to go after Kenya ... she wants the D.A. to file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore.

‘Stop Lying About Everything’: Teen Daughter Of Tamra Barney Lashes Out At Estranged Mom, Calls Her Father A ‘Great Dad’


RadarOnline.com:
The mother and child reunion is more than a motion away in the case of Tamra and Sidney Barney.

The plot thickened in their saga Tuesday, as the precocious 15-year-old broke her silence on the ongoing family drama via Twitter, imploring her estranged reality star mom to “stop lying about everything,” involving her children in the social media mudslinging, and assuring the masses that she’s “not suffering.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, The Real Housewives of Orange County star’s daughter moved out of her mother’s home last October to live with her father Simon, who’s currently in a contentious co-parenting battle with the blonde Bravo bombshell.

Simon Barney, wanting to modify their current custody agreement to have full custody of his teen daughter, said the reality star has been guilty of child neglect, even shirking her duties of making sure the children are bathed and fed while in her stead.

(Mad as a hornet at Radar for breaking the humiliating story, Tamra posted a family pic on her Facebook page and defiantly declared, “I even fed my kids afterward and made them take a shower. Imagine that radar online.”)

Barney’s new husband Eddie Judge got in on the act Tuesday, implying Simon was on a cash grab when he asked via Twitter, ”If u need money wouldn’t u just ask?

“Why embarrass the kids through all these false allegations? Will this justify u?”

But Sidney Barney was having none of it, countering Judge’s inferences in saying that that if her father Simon — who parted with Tamra more than two years ago — “needed money, he would have gone for child support and not full custody.”

In another comment, Sidney said of her father: “He is a great dad but everyone thinks he is a terrible person because they believe the lies. It’s getting old.”

The starling comments from Sidney came on the heels of her revelation that she was excluded from her mother’s Hawaiian vacation, — an accusation Tamra told us amounted to “bullsh*t.”

Joe Giudice’s Former Business Partner Wants Joe And Teresa Locked Up For A Long Time


RadarOnline.com:
Teresa and Joe Giudice are currently facing prison time after pleading guilty to extensive fraud, but even if they each end up serving their respective maximum sentences, justice will not be served, the Giudices’ former friend and business partner, Joe Mastropole, exclusively tells RadarOnline.com.

“A few years in jail is not enough,” Mastropole says of the parents to four young daughters, who pled guilty in March to multiple counts of mail, wire, bank and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa, 41, faces 27 years in prison while her husband of fourteen years, 42, could serve 46 months behind bars. “The time is not enough for the crime,” he adds.

New Jersey construction exec Mastropole has good reason to demand harsher penalties: He yet to see a dime from the $260,000 court judgment he won in 2011 after Joe was found guilty of forging his onetime pal’s signature on a mortgage document in order to pocket $1 million. “Juicy Joe” also never paid 
Mastropole a $420,902.60 real estate debt— but the sum was swept away by the trustee’s April 8 final report in the couple’s $13 million bankruptcy case.

Now, Mastropole worries that the potentially lenient sentences will encourage others to commit similar crimes. “People will be willing to do a few years in jail for $13 million,” predicts Mastropole, who refers to the Giudices as infamous 1930s bank robbing pair Bonnie and Clyde. The court “should make an example of these swindlers so other people don’t try to do the same thing.”

The Giudices’ sentencing is scheduled for July 8.

Tamra Barney‘s Ex-Husband Simon Accuses The Mother Of His Kids Of Not Feeding Or Bathing Their Kids For Days At A Time


Damn, he really went there:
Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney‘s ex-husband made some shocking and horrific allegations against the mother of his three children in divorce documents between the two, exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com.

In the documents, filed March 28 in a California courthouse, Simon Barney claims Tamra has been neglectful in her care for the children — not feeding or bathing them for days at a time!

“Respondent, especially, in recent times, has been very neglectful in her care for the children,” the Memorandum of Points and Authorities reads.

“This has resulted in the children not getting prompt medical care, nutritional meals, hygienic care, and deterioration in their school work and attendance.”

Simon cites an incident on March 7 when their son Spencer, 13, was in Tamra’s care and she failed to take him to the doctor when he broke his thumb.

“While in her care he jammed his thumb. Although he complained it hurt, Respondent did not take him to a doctor… At that time, Petitioner informed Respondent of the injury and asked that she take him to the doctor, yet she failed to do so,” the document states.

“When Spencer came back into Petitioner’s care on March 12, 2014, Petitioner saw that the child’s thumb was not doing well and immediately took him to urgent care on the very same day, a full five days after the injury had occurred. The thumb was later found to be broken and Petitioner made an appointment to go see an orthopedic specialist.”

Also included in the court documents are text messages between Simon and Tamra in which the father claims the RHOC star neglected to properly bathe their 8-year-old daughter, Sophia, resulting in bugs in her hair!

“You haven’t washed Sophia hair in 3 days,” Simon texts.

“She had a bath yesterday and was too weak. It’s not a big deal,” Tamra responds.

Simon then attaches a photo of his daughter’s matted hair asking, “This is not a big deal?”

“She has been in bed the entire time at the house. Like I said she has been in bed. Give it a rest …she is sick and sleeping. She came over with knots in her hair. Did I text you?” Tamra snaps back.

“She was in bed at my house and throwing up every hour. I still got her in the shower and took care of her,” Simon wrote in the April 17, 2013 conversation.

Then just a month later, on May 30, 2013, Simon accuses Tamra of again not properly bathing their daughter.

“When Sophia came to my house yesterday she smelled really bad. I asked her and she said she had taken a shower since she was at my house. Her hair was so dirty that it smelled sour and we found a bug in it,” Simon wrote to Tamra.

She immediately responded, “Shut up! She was here 1day … Leave me alone!!! Did you ever think she ran around at school and was sweating??”

“Why Wouldn’t you have her take a shower?” Simon asked.

Sonja Morgan Has To Sell House To Pay Off Debts


NYDailyNews.com:
“Real Housewives of New York” star Sonja Morgan is now renting out her beloved Upper East Side townhouse, which has been on the market for years, and is getting a whopping $25,000 a month to pay the taxes on it until she can unload it.

The sassy Morgan was forced to declare bankruptcy in 2010 after she was sued by Hannibal Pictures, a production company, for allegedly failing to raise money for a film starring John Travolta.

The ex-wife of J.P. Morgan heir John Morgan had hoped to have the judgment thrown out, but a judge upheld a $7 million settlement to Hannibal, with the company enforcing a lien on Morgan’s assets. In 2011 things got worse for the reality star when a federal court upheld the judgment after Morgan appealed.
Morgan then listed her E. 63rd St. five-story, five-bedroom home, which has a fireplace, garden, gym-spa-bath with sauna, and cedar-lined, climate-controlled closets. She was hoping to sell it to pay off her debts, but found no takers. So she’s renting it out to make money until she can unload it. Morgan is living in an apartment nearby on the Upper East Side.

Morgan and her ex-hubby paid $9.1 million for the 4,500-square-foot house in 1998. After listing it for $9.25 million, she cut the price to $7.25 million. Morgan later took it off the market, saying she decided to keep the house.
While trying to get her finances in order, Morgan is also promoting her “fashion lifestyle brand” and producing events for charities. A rep hired to push her personal business recently sent out a press release noting that Morgan is “clearly a fan favorite.”
“She has been named ‘favorite NYC Housewife’ on ‘Watch What Happens Live’ by Andy Cohen, ‘favorite housewife of the entire franchise’ by Tina Fey, and she is on Perez Hilton’s ‘all-time favorite housewives’ list,” it reads.
Her website, Sonja in the City, describes her as a “Fashion Lifestyle Brand, Entrepreneur, Single Mother, Luxury Brand Consultant, Writer, Producer, Event Planner, Performer, Entertainer and Philanthropist.”
As Morgan tries to get out of her financial hole, the rest of the cast is “paranoid” they are about to get canned due to low ratings, Confidenti@l reported last week, after an episode of the reality series drew just 1.2 million followers, an all-time low for the show.
