One thing about The Real Housewives, no matter what city they are in, it’s irresistible TV. A guilty pleasure that millions indulge in. There’s big hair, big boobs, intrigue, and scandals. Lots and lots of scandals.
Some of the scandals are more like social hiccups, such as someone crashing someone else’s party, someone saying something about someone else, or someone hurting someone else’s feelings. Then there are those housewives who take it up a notch – transgressions that include the FBI, cops, lawyers, judges and pornographers.
Here are the top 5 Real Housewives scandals:
Crashing the White House -
Tareq and Michaele Salahi became front page news way before their episodes of the Real Housewives of DC even started to air. The two famously crashed a state dinner at the White House which resulted in a great big investigation, as well as an appearance in front of the House Homeland Security Committee. The two still stick with their story of innocence, saying they were indeed invited.
Teresa’s Bankruptcy -
It’s no secret that Teresa and Joe Giudice have some serious money issues. The two are $11 Million in debt. But the story doesn’t just end there. Right after they filled for bankruptcy, Teresa has been accused of going on shopping sprees, claiming that was money made after the filling. The Giudice’ also apparently didn’t report all the assets, forgetting to mention properties, cars and that Teresa reportedly signed her Skinny Italian book contract – for $250,000 – a week before they turned in their bankruptcy paperwork.
Danielle’s Porn Tape
Danielle Staub of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is still feigning innocence about the leaking of her sex tape, claiming it was released without her permission, but there are few who believe her. She says she isn’t profiting from the tape but perhaps she did it just for more exposure…literally.
Ashley Holmes Hair Pulling
Danielle Staub could have simply let it go, but instead she pushed ahead with pressing charges against Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashley Holmes. Ashley had pulled Danielle hair at the infamous county club run-in, taking with her some of Danielle extensions. Along with getting the law involved, the two have also apparently engaged in a facebook, twitter, text war.
Danielle has a sordid past, some of which was covered in the book Cop Without a Badge. And now new shocking revelations are being declared by her ex boyfriend who says that she was involved with drugs, kidnapping and had been a prostitute. Who knows how much of it is true, but just the claims are scandalous enough.
Now one thing you may have noticed, four out of the five scandals are from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Yeah, these ladies now how to live! But we know this won’t be the last of the scandals. With more cities being added, and more ladies joining the crew, you know more skeletons will come dancing out of the closets.
