Abby Lee Miller Changes Plea To Guilty

Dance moms abby
Abby Lee Miller joined the ranks of  reality personalities who will have a felony record in federal court last Monday. The Dance Moms star pled guilty to one count of concealing bankruptcy assets and one count of structuring international monetary transactions. Once again the charges stem from a  Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.

Last fall, Abby was charged with failing to disclose (and attempting to hide) $775,000 worth of income from Lifetime and her related appearances and master classes that resulted in 20 separate charges. Basically, what Abby is alleged to have done is having payments she was due paid to her mother instead of herself to avoid paying taxes. I am assuming based on the charges that she did that a total of 20 times in amounts that totaled $775,000.

Deadline, who has had the exclusives on most of this court battle, provided new information on Tuesday reporting, “Miller on June 20 was slammed with a whole new case that threatened her with up to another five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The dance coach allegedly brought more than $10,000 into the country from Australia on August 7, 2014, without the required reporting.”

Meet the Guys of #BB18 Not a Hot One in the House

BB18 Paulie
Paulie  Calafiore
, 27

Hometown: Howell, NJ
Current City: Howell, NJ
Occupation: DJ
Three adjectives that describe you: Driven, passionate, and quick-witted.
Favorite Activities: I love various martial arts, exercise, and instruments. I like Krav Maga the most on the martial arts side and playing the guitar on the instrument side.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house?  
Being away from my family and my business. I’ll definitely have to put a lot of faith in the fact that I have good people working for me to make sure the business continues to grow, especially during the crucial months of the summer.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?
Cody Calafiore from Season 16, for obvious reasons.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game? 
There are multiple strategies I’ll use, none of which have any meaning prior to entering the house and seeing what pieces I’ll be playing chess with.
My life’s motto is… 
A comfort zone is a wonderful place, but nothing ever grows there.
What would you take into the house, and why? 
A toothbrush, toothpaste and mouthwash because it would be impossible to be social at all with rancid breath.

TT’s Thoughts: I don’t think he knows that he is gay. NTTAWWT. I think there are a lot of things he doesn’t know.

Meet The Female Houseguests of #BB18

BB18 Tiffany Rousso
It’s time for Big Brother 18 you guys! The hamsters are already in the house, the first week is in the history books and my live feeds have been purchased.  So far there are 12 players six women and six men.  However four more players will be added live tomorrow night. The speculation is that there are four returning veterans and some variation of the “coaching twist” will be in play. No one really seems to know for sure about who is coming back. There are huge arguments on the sites about that with multiple combinations being promised to be the true spoiler. I’ve been super busy and have not had time to investigate all of that. In fact, I have been working on the introductory posts since the cast was release but things have really been popping around here and I have to prioritize by what gets the most views. So I hope my Big Brother fans will turn up so that I can keep on recapping!  Here are the ladies. I’ll try to get the guys up ASAP for now I suppose Michelle is my girl.

Tiffany Rousso, 32
Hometown: West Palm Beach, FL
Current City: Palm Beach Gardens, FL
Occupation: High school teacher
Three adjectives that describe you: Passionate, smart, and sincere.
Favorite Activities: Playing basketball, wakeboarding, paddle boarding, painting, singing, and playing guitar.
What do you think will be the most difficult part about living inside the Big Brother house? 
Staying focused and positive. It seems like a lot of past Houseguests start getting paranoid and that seems to be their downfall. Every moment in the house is a chance to turn it all around. It’s like living in a fairytale book you’re creating yourself.
Which past Big Brother cast member did you like most?  
I really liked Janelle [Pierzina from Season 6]. She was a competition beast and was also very smart. She played social when she had to, and pulled out the competition wins when she had to. She was also very likeable, in general.
Do you have a strategy for winning the game?
I am planning on integrating three key facets into my game: I want to build rapport with everyone, be social, and have one person I can trust until the end. I will make people feel like I am on their side. I also hope to be great at competitions when needed. It’s all about timing. You don’t want to come out with guns blazing!
I’ll also be sure to align myself loosely with bigger threats, so they get taken out first, but they will be more likely to win HOH competitions.
My life’s motto is… Live with urgency.
What would you take into the house, and why? 
A secret spy kit—kidding!—music, and champagne and orange juice. Mimosas for everyone!

TT’s Thoughts: She seemed really boring in her interview with Jeff. She is probably just going to replay Vanessa’s game. She’s the oldest female and a high school teacher. She may take the maternal role.

Sidebar: Curtis Lovelace Posts Bond; Set To Be Released Within Days

Photo: Don O’Brien Twitter Lovelace leaving court today. No shoes?

 

This post is based on the Twitter feed of Don O’Brien a local reporter in Quincy with a close eye on the case.

Some somewhat surprising events occurred today regarding the Case of Curtis Lovelace.   If you haven’t read about this case here previously, Lovelace is accused of murdering his wife on Valentine’s Day of 2006.  He was not arrested until 2014. He has been in jail in Quincy, Illinois for the past 650 days because his bond was set astronomically high. The mid-sized rural town is quite divided over his guilty or innocence.  You should click hear for all the details.  From my perspective, the prosecution has not been able to prove that the wife was murdered at all. Certainly not beyond a reasonable doubt.  On the other hand, Curtis did a lot of bizarre things that make him appear to be guilty.  It’s really quite a curious case.

Last February, there was a bizarre trial where the prosecution brought in media pandering experts, like Baden who would testify that the wife was suffocated. For a town of its size the local prosecutors spent tons of money trying to get a jury to convict. However, the jury was spilt right down the middle and a mistrial was declared. Ever determined to convict, the prosecution plans to bring the case in a new trial, the current date of that is October, 24, 2016.

Real Housewives Court Roundup For This Week!

WWHL with Kim Richards

 

Kim Richards was supposed to have a hearing in the Van Nuys court house today to explain her lack of compliance with her probation on the Target case. The word is, that as of last month Kim had not made enough, or perhaps any progress regarding her community service/labor or her AA meetings.  I think she may have had another date on Wednesday in Beverly Hills.

Apparently, asking someone to go to The Valley (GASP!) to hang out in the courthouse at 8:30 am and give a detailed report is akin to Chinese water torture or something. I was unsuccessful in my efforts and it doesn’t seem as though TMZ sent anyone either.  I’ve been waiting all day to hear something. In fact it was the main motivation to open the laptop today.

I am starting to doubt that she showed up. If I had to make a guess, I say one of her lawyers showed up to file for an extension.  Or maybe something happened and no one cares. A few years ago when a housewife was in court, any post about it drew a lot of views.  The last report on Kim’s court issue got mediocre attention here. It’s so common place for a housewife to be in legal trouble these days, we barely report it.

Here Is (Part of) Why I Am So Disheartened By The World Today

alice-were-all-mad-t-shirt-hr

I’m starting to understand Perez Hilton a bit more. You remember Perez Hilton. He used to be a blogger who was hugely successful for drawing penises on photos of celebrities using photoshop.  Essentially, he made a career out of degrading celebrities. There was a huge market for that. And there still is. Celebrity hate is big business. At some point, after making a shit ton of money, Perez went on a Ramona Singer sort of apology tour.  He wanted to adopt a kid. He didn’t need anyone seeing his dark black soul, particularly adoption agencies. When he finally got a kid, he transformed into a barely tolerable human being. Long before his transformation, he was already hiring ghostwriters to post on his site. Allegedly. Although I used to know one.  He discovered at some point that catering to the lowest common denominator, while lucrative, also changes the molecules in your body and mind. I admire the fact that he recognized this and  saved himself and put other people on his site to do his dirty work. I have no idea if the site is still a penis drawing muckracking piece of shit or not. I have not only not been there; but, I don’t think I have received a single email from my supporters who attempt to help keep me up to date on things. I don’t know nor do I care if the site even still exists.

I know that when I realized this blog was going to be my fulltime 24/7 job there were two things I wanted to avoid. I did not want this to be a hate site.  That was in my initial set of commenting rules. “This is not a hate site.”  That is what caused me to list a commenting rule that we do not use degrading names when commenting on posts here like LuMan, or HeHe, or Miss Andy.  I do not tolerate degrading people here.

There are some that do not understand the difference between mocking the holy fuck out of someone for their ACTIONS, as opposed to degrading someone as a human. For example, Nene can be a gigantic cunt.  Saying did you see her ratchet behavior when she…. there are too many examples to pick just one, is fine.  Saying something like “Ha ha ha no wonder her mother abandoned her and she doesn’t know who her father is !” is not.  Calling out shitty behavior that you have seen on a reality show, is fine. It’s why we are all here.  When it gets to the point of calling someone a shit person, you’ve crossed the line I am trying to keep here.
