Gia Giudice Has a New Video Out

Check out Gia’s new video, Circus (Britany Cover)with her group 3TK. Try to make it all the way til the end with a surprise guest. I’ll hold back my opinion until you guys give yours.

But I will ask you to look at the facial features of the main singer, then look at Gia.  Um, hey, girl singing in the middle, who’s yer daddy? I’m just asking. Also, it looks like this is where at least some of the money went.

Jodia Arias Trial: My Guess On The Mystery Mitigation Witness

This trial is aging Judge Stephens.

This trial is aging Judge Stephens.

Based on something posted on twitter, (please click the link) my new guess for the identity of the mysterious mitigation witness is, Dr. Cheryl L. Karp, the Vice-Chairperson for the State of Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners. And it may be the prosecution that is asking for the secrecy.  It seems that last time the defense actually objected to Karp being a secret witness. Karp would likely be testifying to Arias’ abuse claims.

I do not believe Karp actually testified last time. I believe she was allowed to just have her report placed into evidence when DeMarte testified for the prosecution. This time, I think the only people objecting to the witness testifying in secret are the media. I believe Karp doesn’t want to be identified for professional reasons. It might blemish her high powered job to be known as the person who provided evidence that benefits Jodi Arias. Continue reading

Brandi Glanville Running Her Mouth On Steve Harvey Show

RHOBH Brandi Glanville Steve Harvey

Brandi Glanville’s father recently had heart surgery and just a couple days ago was released from ICU, and during that time, Brandi took the opportunity to go on Steve Harvey to have him help her find a man. According to publicity trailers for the show that will air tomorrow, Steve Harvey, for the first time ever basically declared Brandi undateable and suggested she get her shit together before trying to date.  Today on her Twitter she once again announced she had dumped another man, a 23-year-old boytoy. Actually, it’s unclear who dumped who… On the show Brandi asked one bachelor how he felt about women with fake hair, breasts and nails.  He replied that he’d be concerned everything else about her was fake. She immediately dismissed him from consideration. Eventually, Steve tells Brandi he doesn’t think she should go out with either of his choices. After watching her in action, she’s just not ready to date. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Morning Recap 10/28

Jodi Arias Day 2

We begin the morning with a sidebar. Juan has some scheduling questions. Nurmi has some objections, I’d presume. It’s taking a while. I think Juan left the courtroom briefly. The plan if we make it that far is for Nurmi to cross Flores today. I think Nurmi will be playing the sex tape to show that Travis was sexually deviant. Bascially, it will be a blame the victim day, in my prediction.  Yep, there it is. Judge Stephens warns court watchers that graphic video and audio of a sexual nature will be displayed. They should not have a reaction. If they don’t think they can handle it they need to leave. Then the jury is allowed in and Flores takes the stand. The sisters of Travis Alexander opt not to be in the courtroom for this portion of proceeding and wait elsewhere in the courthouse.

Nurmi begins by showing Flores a cardboard box with a mix of blood and water. Then attention is turned to the shell casing in the bathroom. The casing is on top of the blood stain. This has been an issue in every version of this trial. Flores says he is not sure if the casing was kicked during investigation of the scene. Nurmi seems interested in knowing if the  bullet is a hollow point. Flores says he can’t tell from the picture. I’m pretty sure Flores knows if it is a hollow point or not.

Nurmi shows the shower scenes and the time stamps. He says if Jodi wanted to kill him (what?) she had twenty four seconds to do it while his back was turned. He measures off 24 second of silence.  He waits out another 16 seconds for the amount of time between next photo. Nurmi asks Flores if he were to turn his back to him, would he be able to see him? This line of questioning seems pointless. Nurmi is trying to say that Jodi had opportunities to kill Travis that she didn’t take. Inadvertently, he is also saying she wanted him to know who killed him. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Afternooon Update 10/27/14

This is the look Jodi gives to each juror as they walk in.

This is the look Jodi gives to each juror as they walk in.

Everyone is back in court, including Juror 12 and we are back to listening to Flores conversation with Jodi.  Actually, this sounds like the interrogation video. Flores tells Jodi they found the camera. She says she has never seen Travis’ camera, she had recently helped him pick a good one but she is not sure what he ended up with. She says she was not there. Flores says they have pictures of her there. Jodi denies it. He tells her he has seen their naked pictures. She tells him it must be from another time. She denies it is her. She lies and denies like a Below Deck Head Stew. Flores explains he has her hair, a bloody handprint mixed with both her blood and Travis’. Pictures. She’s busted. There is no way out of this. She continues to deny. She utters the famous line, “I would never hurt Travis. If I had done this I would beg for the death penalty.”

Jodi wants to see the pictures. She pretends like she doesn’t know about her nude pictures in pigtails. Flores tells her that everyone says she is obsessed with Travis. She was stalking him. She brutally killed him. It was a fatal attraction.  Jurors are watching video intently. Jodi asks if they found the gun. Jodi wants details of the killing because she has a morbid curiosity.

Jodi draws Flores a map outlining her “trip to Salt Lake City.” She had no GPS and is bad with directions and got lost. Flores says she turned her phone off the whole time she was in Arizona. She says the battery died. He points out it worked again when she was in Utah. Jodi says she is not a murderer. They take a break and Jodi acts very bizarrely in the room alone. Stretching, head stands. laying on the table. Flores returns. She asks what kind of gun he carries (a glock.) She says that if Travis were there she would tell him she didn’t do it.  Flores says it’s his job to speak for Travis now. He knows she did it. Flores shows her the naked photos. She admits it looks like her. And Travis. He shows her the picture of her dragging Travis down the hallway. “That’s your foot, Jodi. Those are your pants. That’s Travis’s body.”  Jodi denies. She says if she were going to kill someone, she would use gloves. She has plenty of them. Flores tells her a neighbor saw her at Travis’.  More lies. More denial. He says even her parent have given statements saying they believe she did it. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Morning Recap For Monday October 27th

jodi arias day3

Well, the Jodi circus is up and running again in Arizona. We begin the day with a motion to dismiss the states intent to seek the death penalty due to state misconduct. Basically, Nurmi got his hands on some texts between Detective Flores’ wife and an unknown party about the forged letters that Jodi had someone draw up in prison that were supposed to be from Travis. I don’t see why the detective’s wife would be prohibited from talking about the case just like everyone else in the free world was doing at the time. I don’t think this motion will go anywhere. Just more paperwork for the appeals.

In other news, on Thursday, Detective Flores told the media that no other jurors had been dismissed after Juror 17 was taken into chambers to meet with both sides causing the entire case not to be able to go forward on Thursday afternoon. That was a no no. The judge told him not to speak to the media about events that occur in her chambers.

And on we go to the gas cans which seem to be the major focus of Juan Martinez. Nurmi’s constant objections resulting in numerous sidebars continue. Nurmi objected Martinez playing a video of Jodi’s ex boyfriend explaining about the gas cans. The jury is sent out and Nurmi wins the battle. Video is legally inadmissible, it would seem. So Martinez and Flores read the transcript, with Flores reading as Brewer. Seems ridiculous. But, Arizona. We all recall the gas can story. She borrowed a couple from the ex and bought another at Wal*Mart so that she would not have to purchase gas in Arizona.  They go though all the gas receipts, tank size of car, size of gas cans, etc. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Unable to Proceed After Lunch Break. Juror 17 Is a Problem.

This was Jodi's Day Three Look. It didn't get much use.

This was Jodi’s Day Three Look. It didn’t get much use.

 

UPDATEE 10/24/14 I just zipped through Dr. Drew and he confirms that he did not put up his tweet until AFTER court was adjourned for the day. Which confirms to me that he booked the old Juror 17 after the new Juror 17 situation arose. He did that because everyone wants to know the deal with the new Juror 17 so he booked the old one to play off that interest. So the new #17 was called into chambers for some other reason.

UPDATED AGAIN: In an odd turn of events, Dr. Drew is interviewing Juror 17 FROM THE ORIGINAL TRIAL, not Juror 17 that is at the center of today’s debacle.  Very sneaky there, Dr. Drew. Very sneaky.  So We are back to the belief that Juror 17 from the current trial has not (yet) been dismissed. Dr. Drew is evil.

UPDATED: It appears Juror 17 WAS kicked off. Will be on Dr. Drew on HLN tonight at 9 During SCANDAL! UGH.

We come back from lunch and Judge Sherry Stephens dismisses the jury for the day. She asks Juror 17 to stay behind. WTF is wrong with these jurors? Can they not stay out of trouble at lunchtime? Do they need to be sequestered? WHAT NOW? Judge Stephens says they are unable to proceed today to an event outside of their control.

The lawyers, Arias and Travis’ sister are all called into chambers. Juror 17 was waiting in jury room. Speculation is she is in chambers  as well. They were only in chambers for a few minutes. Maybe five. Nurmi and Willmott seem “happy” according to one account. Detective Flores told several reporters that Juror 17 was NOT dismissed. But how would he know? He was not present for whatever happened in chambers.

It will remain a mystery until Monday I suppose because there is no court on Fridays. Because, Arizona.

This is just a clusterfuck of a retrial and it’s only day three.

Jodi Arias Trial Day Three Morning Recap: Hissyfits and Crying Jags

Jodi Arias Day 2

The day begins with a sidebar at the bench. Because, Arizona.  Up first is Esteban Flores. Nurmi is finally getting to cross-examine him because for some reason Horn had to be on the stand yesterday. If this is your first trip to the rodeo, Flores was the lead investigator in the murder of Travis Alexander. There have been seats available in the courtroom everyday. The overflow viewing room has not been needed. Who wants to go be the TamaraTattles.com intern for this case? Anyone?

Nurmi immediately goes in on Flores asking him if he lied in any previous court proceedings. At issue once again is the sequence of the wounds inflicted on Alexander. Flores has been accused of changing his story and pressuring Horn to change his. Horn denies having a conversation of that nature with Flores, and continued to do so yesterday.  Nurmi whips out the transcripts of previous testimony by Flores where he said the gunshot happened first. Ooopsy. Flores testified that the neck slicing came last. He claims that it was Horn that told him it was the final wound. This is not what Horn said yesterday. Martinez objections and calls a sidebar. Sounds like Nurmi is doing a good job trying to impeach the testimony of Flores. Continue reading

Blood Sweat and Heels Bravoleb Geneva Thomas Arrested for Felony Assault

Demetria on Blood Sweat and Heels It's Hell Time

If you had Geneva Thomas in the Which Bravoleb Will Be The Next Felon By Bravo Pool, you are a winner!  But really? Who would have chosen her? I liked her and thought she was the voice of sanity on Blood Sweat and Heels.  She made news a month or two ago over stiffing a cab driver, but at the time it just seemed like it was all a big misunderstanding. She has a January court date for that situation.   But now, Geneva has gone full on bad girl!

First of all, the good news is that Blood Sweat and Heels is taping again. I actually liked that show season one, though we all know the second season of anything Bravo produced is when things start to go to shit. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Day Two Afternoon Recap: It Was A Slow, Boring Afternoon

Jodi Arias TwitterWe are officially down two jurors in two days. Yesterday one was excused for a family emergency, today one decided to wander out front, take her badge off, have a smoke and watch the live news interviews. That was juror 9 and she has been sent packing.

Back to the showdown between Willmott and Horn. Willmott says it is possible to survive a gunshot wound to the frontal lobe. Horn sticks to his original story that when he reviewed his initial report he made some corrections. Horn maintains that the gun shot was last. JW ends her cross.

Martinez jumps up and runs toward Horn with a pen a pretends to stab him while shouting “That didn’t take long, did it?” Willmott objects saying, “Mr Martinez is standing next to the witness and yelling at him…and stabbing him!”  Not nearly as good as Objection! Fairytale! Which will always remain the best objection made by any attorney in any case.  Juan does very little redirect. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Trial Day 2 Morning Recap

Jodi Arias Day 2

Juan was in court early prosecuting an unrelated case. All of Jodi’s family and Donovan are there. Travis’s family is there including all the sisters. Jodi chatted with her mitigation specialist while she waited.  A juror is running late but in en route. Meanwhile Nurmi made a motion to repress the medical examiner’s testimony about the order of the wounds. Judge Stephens denied it.  For some reason I do not understand, Nurmi is not allowed to cross-examine Flores’ testimony from yesterday  until after Horn gives his testimony. I believe Horn is the HOT medical examiner that we enjoyed watching last time. He will be up first today. The order of the wounds and the determination of the fatal wound seem to be very important to both sides. And frankly, if I recall correctly Horn, or someone changed their minds about the order of the wound inflictions last time. I think Horn’s schedule is limited and he can only testify first this morning. That is why Nurmi can’t do his cross yet. Nurmi thinks this is a calculated move by Martinez. Of course it was but there is no law against it.

I am still confused why Nurmi is upset over the phone sex call. Nurmi feels that Martinez is questioning the authenticity of the recording. Martinez says he is not questioning the authenticity, he is questioning whether the tape was stolen. Nurmi wants to call Martinez on the stand to state that he has already acknowledged the authenticity of the tape.  Does anyone understand the point of this? Nurmi seems to be saying if the judge doesn’t find prosecutorial misconduct on Martinez’s part he will call him as a witness. Continue reading

Jodi Arias Sentencing Trial Began Today

Kurt Nurmi has lost a ton of weight and gained a lot of hair.

Kurt Nurmi has lost a ton of weight and gained a lot of hair.

The proceedings began with Judge Stephens excusing a juror due to a family emergency. The defense objected but the juror was replaced. There are 6 men and 12 women on the jury. The judge said the trial is expected to last until December 18th. She also informed the jury that the previous jury found that Travis Alexander was killed in an especially cruel manner and it is up to them to determine a moral and just sentence. Jodi Arias made eye contact with each juror as they walked in. The jury is very engaged and is taking note.

After a brief recess, Kurt Nurmi gave the opening statement for the defense. Kurt is either wearing a wig or has joined the Hair Club for Men as he has a full head of hair!  He described the relationship between Jodi and Travis as one of friendship, lust, passion, spirituality and tragedy. He pointed out they will be seeing lots of very graphic evidence. For some reason he wanted them to know this will include a close-up shot of Jodi’s anus..  Did we see that last time?

Nurmi went on to point out the both Travis and Jodi overcame abusive childhoods.  When they met at a Pre Paid Legal convention Jodi was already beginning to have signs of mental illness. She was young and intelligent but very immature. He says that Jodi as PTSD. She never committed a crime before this. She does not deserve to die. Nurmi’s opening was about 45 minutes.

Juan Martinez comes out swinging ranting about the cruel manner in which Travis was killed. Nurmi objects right away. Nurmi objects four times in the first three minutes of Martinez’s opening statement. Martinez goes into the sex talk about shaved pussies and blow jobs and asking Travis to come on her face. Martinez moves on to premeditation, the rental car, the gas cans, the gun… He describes the murder in detail pointing out that the stabbings did not kill Travis and he was in extreme pain as she killed him in the most cruel manner possible. Martinez goes through all of Jodi’s lies to the police, she wasn’t there, she was there but ninjas tried to kill them. Martinez supposedly has borderline personality disorder, but that is not a mental illness. I can’t believe he said that. I am going from tweets and updates from reporters in the room. Surely they got that wrong. Continue reading
