James Leonard Continues To Peddle Non-Stories To People Magazine

Wait, Joe was cute when they met! #FBF

Wait, Joe was cute when they met! #FBF

I continue to be fascinated with Teresa Giudice’s “attorney” and his love of media attention. James Leonard  particularly seems to like selling stories to People to answer questions that no one is asking.  Today’s breaking story on People is entitled ” The Surprising Reason Teresa Giudice Can’t Visit Her Husband Joe In Prison More Frequently.”  Which is a poor title not just because of the unnecessary length but because in fact, Teresa is allowed to visit Joe as frequently as she would like  Despite tis fact, Leonard goes into great detail about why Teresa is not visiting more often while claiming that she goes every other weekend.

Here is a partial list of “reasons” why Teresa isn’t visiting more according to Leonard, “Where he is, you get a certain number of points every month and each visit counts as a point. Weekend visits are considered more points,” Leonard explains. “So because he also has his mother and sister coming to visit, and Teresa can’t go during the week because the girls are in school, they’re having to do it every other weekend.”

Except none of this is accurate.

Sad News From RHONJ, Johnny The Greek Has Died

RHONJ Johnny the Greek

John Karagiorgis, best known to us as “Johnny the Greek” from the Real Housewives of New Jersey has died of a massive heart attack according to Vicki Hyman at NJ.com.

Here at Tamara Tattles we are especially saddened by the news.  I was once coerced by Johnny to speak with him on the phone, something anyone who knows me knows I am loathe to do.  Johnny was always quite funny and upbeat during our occasional chats.  He was usually out somewhere with Penny who would chime in at times and give me updates on all things RHONJ.

Johnny the Greek was front and center in one of the biggest dramas ever on RHONJ, Stiletto Gate 2013.

The RHONJ Trailer Is Out

RHONJ juicy joe

Sorry, I have too much going on today to try to explain the RHONJ trailer with interpretive dance and sign language.  I can’t grasp why Bravo guards AN ADVERTISEMENT for their show like gold and doesn’t make it embeddable for all.  So I will do a bit of purple pen on the press release and call it a day.

NEW YORK – May 24, 2016 – There won’t be any lazy days of summer when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” returns for its much anticipated seventh season on Sunday, July 10 at 8pm ET/PT. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new Housewives, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, along with the return of a true Jersey veteran, Jacqueline Laurita. Also appearing this season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.. Wait whut? What happened to the lesbian couple?  They aren’t mentioned at all? I thought they were downgraded after the fight in Vermont (that was Jac’s fault)  but no mention at all? So you can hit people all day long in Atlanta, but not Jac Laurita?  If they were cut out, then why were they at the finale filming that Jac refused to show up for?

Vicki Gunvalson’s Newest Beau Is Briana Approved! Plus #RHONJ & #RHOOC News

RHOOC Vicki and family

Vick Gunvalson has dated quite a few men since her split with Brooks and she shares quite a few of them on Instagram. This latest one has not to my knowledge been named yet, presumably to avoid all the drilling down by websites for background information.  A few of the ones in between Brooks and this guy did not pass the prying eyes of the internet to be sure.

This one seems to be just part of the family. I’m not sure what the details are on Briana’s husband but it seems like I heard something about him getting a discharge for some sort of disability? I could be wrong about that. At any rate, whether Briana has finally gotten the hell out of Oklahoma permanently, as seemed to be the plan, or is just back in Orange County for filming RHOOC, it seems the whole gang is one big happy family at this Angels game last night.

This weekend, probably on Saturday, I will post my Top Ten Real Housewives of all time. I just finished writing my part and have a couple of friends you may know from the radiator room contributing theirs.  Now that I have mine hammered out ( I can’t believe how seriously I took this and how I agonized over my choices!) and Xanadude and The Lady Cocotte have their homework turned in, I can now go and read their lists.

While we are waiting until tomorrow (probably afternoon) for me to get all this information organized into a post, why don’t you guys post your top ten lists in comments.  We are giving reasons why we placed our choices where we did, and feel free to do that as well.

For me, I needed to come up with some sort of guidelines to go by. So let me know how you chose. Just housewives you like?  The most interesting?  The most watchable? What drives your ranking?

Teresa Giudice’s Upcoming Court Cases Just Got Interesting

Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!

Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!

There are a few little things to report on Teresa’s Giudice’s court case against her former bankruptcy lawyer, James Kridel.  Personally, I find Teresa’s constant attempt to find anyone to blame for her actions sad and ridiculous.

Kridel feels much the same way I do and asked the judge to throw out the case.  His stance is obvious, Teresa  went to jail for mortgage and bankruptcy fraud. Even it if he did something to cause her bankruptcy filing to be fraudulent, she had lots of federal charges not related to the bankruptcy at all. Like all those fraudulent meetings with bankers where she produced fake W-2s from jobs she knew full well she didn’t have.  Teresa has lied repeatedly about her assets, and most importantly she signed  documents she reviewed that left off most of her actual assets during the bankruptcy filing and she signed a plea deal!

Despite all of that, a judge ruled against Kridel and is allowing Teresa to go on with her ridiculous case. To me this is a non-story.  Idiots can file whatever cases they feel like paying lawyers for with little to any actual legal standing. I read this information and decided it was not particularly newsworthy and didn’t change a thing. The case is still moving forward at the usual glacial pace.
