Real Housewives of Atlanta star has long criminal record  Clink to read more

The latest series of hit reality show 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' has not yet hit TV screens - but a new member is already causing controversy.

The latest series of hit reality show ‘The Real Housewives of Atlanta’ has not yet hit TV screens – but a new member is already causing controversy. For it has emerged that Marlo Hampton has a long criminal track record and was snapped for seven different mugshots between 1999 and 2003. – HSD / Splash News

It has emerged that Marlo Hampton has a long criminal record and had seven different mugshots taken between 1999 and 2003.

Hampton, who is engaged to NFL player Charles Grant, was booked on a string of different charges by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Department while living in Tampa, Florida.

She has been arrested for aggravated battery with great bodily harm, probation violations, buying items with a worthless cheque and possession of a firearm.

Hampton, 35, said: ‘I am not ashamed of my past as that has helped me become a better woman today.

‘We all have a past and my hard-knock childhood in and out of the foster care system is a reflection on a bigger issue we are faced with here in America, a broken foster care system.

‘My present charge in life is to live with God in my heart and help young women especially from the foster care system avoid the challenges I faced.’

‘Mob Wives’ Drita D’avanzo: I Don’t Want My Kids To Take After Me!   Clink to read more

And Drita’s kids are luckily adhering to their mother’s advice. “Aleeya had an incident when she first moved here — girls not wanting to be nice to her. She came home crying,” remembers Drita. But Aleeya didn’t raise her fist. “She actually said, ‘I was so mad that it was so hurtful, but I remember you said ignore them and I did.’ I was so proud of her because I was in kindergarten when I punched a kid in the face.”

“When people say mean things to you, you have to feel sorry for them and pray for them to be a better person at night,” Drita always reminds her kids.

But Drita still fears that Aleeya’s emotions could cause her problems down the road, because that’s exactly what happened to her father, Lee D’avanzo. “Why I want to get my daughter help in therapy is because my husband had anger issues with the fact that the feds killed his father,” explains Drita. “He immediately had a hatred towards the law. His mother said he became a totally different person when he woke up.”

“Not that that’s Aleeya’s case,” continues Drita. “She can get angry at the world because her father’s not around,” but she keeps it all inside.

Drita just doesn’t want to see her daughter ever react like Drita does under pressure. “The last incident that I had just went to show me that really I could just end up in jail,” says Drita referring to the season finale fight where blood is drawn. “These kids have no business not having both parents around”

Ramona Singer: I Don’t Have a Drinking Problem Clink to read more

Ramona Singer: I Don't Have a Drinking Problem    

“Do I overdrink? No. I drink with responsibility,” Ramona told In the Mixx at a recent event for Hamptons Magazine at the Southampton Social Club. “I drink with a beautiful dinner. I would rather have my one or two glasses of Pinot Grigio than dessert which is 700 calories.”

Though she admits her name has become synonymous with the white wine, she’s using that to her advantage with her own line, Ramona Pinot Grigio.

And besides, the 54-year-old explains, drinking comes with being a Real Housewife.

“All I can say is, we’re filmed in social events. If you look at anytime I have a drink in my hand, look what LuAnn [de Lesseps] is drinking. The other people are drinking,” Ramona said. “The only person who doesn’t drink is Jill [Zarin]. She only drinks Diet Coke – and you wonder why? But anyway, all the other Housewives shows – they’re all drinking.”

Does it bother her that her costars, like Jill, have said they worry about her drinking? Or that she’s portrayed on the show as always wanting a glass of her beloved wine?

“I actually said to Bravo, I called them up I said, ‘Wait, is the story line so bad you have to make [my drinking] a story line? Because you know I don’t have a drinking problem,’ ” she said.

She also noted: “I’ve been on the show for four years. How can I have five businesses, be married 19 years, have a daughter who’s a straight-A student? I cannot even be a … functioning alcoholic if I had all of this stuff going on. It would be impossible. Do you ever see me fall down on TV? Do you ever see me slur my speech? Absolutely not. Do I have a drink or two with dinner? Absolutely.”

And that, according to her husband Mario, is good for business.

“You know what? It promotes the Pinot Grigio,” he says of the frequency of Real Housewives footage of Ramona drinking. “So if they want to make a big deal about it … that’s [fine].”

News, Rumors and Just Plain Ol Gossip

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 25, 2011



Kim Zolciak to Kelly Bensimon: “Grow Up”  Damn I love me a twitter war.  Clink here to read more.

Kim Zolciak had some strong words for Real Housewives of New Yorkstar Kelly Bensimon on Twitter today — but then she apparently took them back.

The pregnant Real Housewives of Atlanta star tweeted: “How disgusting Kelly from RHONY to make comments about my unborn child and Kroy! Grow up and keep my name outta ur mouth!”

(Real Housewives gossiping about each other? Shocking!)


 Camille tones down her act  Is this possible that Camille Grammer is toning it down?  Well I guess if a court order demands it, its not from free will!  Click here to read more!

Camille Grammer

Has Kelsey Grammer‘s ex-wife Camille Grammer been ordered in their divorce settlement to shut up about their painful split and calm down on “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills”?

After hitting the jackpot in her recent divorce settlement with the “Frasier” star — and facing a custody battle for their kids — Camille has returned to the show’s second-season tapings “subdued.”

So much so that Bravo producers are finding her character — which provided a lot of the crazy entertainment in Season 1 — “really boring,” according to sources, one of whom added, “Producers have told Camille she has to start being more interesting and causing more drama.”


Melissa Gorga Considered Leaving Jersey ‘Housewives’.  And I don’t believe this for a moment!  Do you?  Other wise Angry Joe would of given her “the look”  Clink here to read more!

Melissa – sister-in-law to “Real Housewife” Teresa Giudice – told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover on Friday’s Access Hollywood Live that she considered leaving the series after a fight broke out at her son’s baptism reception.

“That was crazy!” she said of the fracas that started after her husband, Joe Gorga, called his sister Teresa “garbage,” which incensed Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, and led to the massive brawl featured on the show’s season premiere.

“It was sad,” Melissa continued. “It’s obviously not because Teresa came over and said hello. It’s deep, it’s deep and I think you’re going to see play out on the rest of the show.”

The new “Housewife” claimed she doesn’t want to be a wedge between her husband and his sister.

“I do not want Teresa and [my husband] Joe to be apart,” she told Billy and Kit. “I want them to be together and I’m kind of stuck between a brother and a sister who are having this quarrel… This happens in everyone’s families. How many people get along wonderfully with their sister-in-laws? I don’t know many!”

Mob Wives Recap – “It’s On And Poppin!”

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 23, 2011

Folks, I wasn’t so sure I was going to recap this episode since it’s a busy week with Housewives, but after watching this episode, “ITS ON AND POPPIN!!” 

We begin this episode with tensions still high with Renee having words with Carla’s boyfriend at Drita’s birthday party, which I gotta tell ya, Drita was SMASHED!  Renee tried to tell Carla that her boyfriend was not good enough for her and “She could do betta”, but before Renee could go any further in the conversation, Carla walks away not wanting to hear any of it.

Also, we have the infamous sit down between Drita and Karen, where Karen wants to confront Drita on jumping in her grave so quickly when she broke up with Lee where eventually Drita married Lee, Karen’s ex.  I can understand Karen’s feeling of betrayal because it was not just any relationship.  Karen dated Lee for 7 years AND Drita lived with Karen and was privy to all the relationship ups and downs.  I find it creepy that your best friend who has supported you through a relationship and break up, now dates and then marries the same dude?

Twinkly Tweets With VH1 “Mob Wives” AND HOLY SHIT!! It’s On Like Poppin!

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 22, 2011


I was actually writing a post for all of Renee Graziano’s funny tweets since she is so hysterical and truly witty.  As I spent some time scrolling down the twitter page for maybe 75 pages which took a lot of time, it was 8:00 pm and time to watch “Mob Wives”. I opened another browser page for twitter to view and tweet about tonights show. What I didn’t know was a HUGE twitter war that would unfold right before me own eyes!!. Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano really hold their own on twitter. Drita seems to be playing both sides and Carla? WHAT A FREAKIN WHIMP! She can not cut a bitch or even lick one.

I will most definitely have a recap up later folks. This one can not be missed. Reruns for Mob Wives go all night on VH1. You MUST check it out. I IMPLORE YOU! If you love Real Housewives of NJ, then this show is right up your er.. um.. alley.

News, Rumors and Just Plain Ol Gossip

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 11, 2011

Bethenny Frankel is featured in ‘Time’ entailing her past years parlaying her reality show stints into a financial success rising above all reality stars.  Excerpt below and Click here to read full article.

Why there was ever a doubting question mark on Bethenny Getting Married? is up for debate, though one might blame those pesky, undermining Real Housewives castmates. One of the great hilarities of the show was watching Frankel — youngest, skinniest, arguably prettiest, her career advancing by the minute — bullied mercilessly by women who were forced to renew vows, restock closets and redecorate to garner equal camera time. Informed breezily by Ramona Singer that best friend Jill Zarin only liked her because she liked to root for the “underdog,” Frankel incredulously told the cameras, “I hadn’t realized I was this deformed, undateable human being.” When Frankel was chosen for the cover of Social Life magazine, former model Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ well-placed dart — “Are they going to airbrush you?” — hit home. Visibly rattled, Frankel tried vainly to pry an apology out of this blithe Cruella over an excruciating lunch. The ingenue couldn’t see garden-variety jealousy when it smacked her with her own rising star. But viewers (and savvy producers) could.

Consumer Reports on how “The Real Housewives of New York City” are really irresponsible.  Something some of us had discussed already and confirmed by the experts.  Click here to read more.

Less than two weeks ago on Bravo television, The Real Housewives of New York City took a risky ride on a couple of all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). In a scene that lasted for less than 45 seconds, the characters managed to misuse the vehicles in numerous ways. They—and worse, their children—were at a greater risk of injury and potentially death because they lacked helmets, rode tandem and allowed children to drive and ride two abreast as passengers behind the driver.

From 2004 through 2008, there was an estimated annual average of 864 ATV-related deaths in the United States and 141,080 emergency-room-treated injuries. This five-year period consisted of an annual average of 142 reported deaths of children under the age of sixteen. Of those injured in that time period, 40,420 were under the age of sixteen. For this reason, we recommend against the use of ATVs by children as either drivers or passengers.

“Mob Wives” Tough Talking Renee Graziano Dishes!

Posted by ImaJustSaying on May 5, 2011


New York Post –  Renee Graziano finally can tell all.  Some excerpts below

The VH1 reality series, which premiered April 17, has freed Graziano, 41, to talk about her life as the daughter of Anthony “The Little Guy “ Graziano, the reputed consigliere in the Bonanno crime family, and ex-wife of mobster Hector Pagan Jr, who was convicted of running a huge marijuana distribution ring.

“I’m no longer living my own secret life,” she says. “The best part of “Mob Wives” for me is being able to say it out loud.”

The show is the brainchild of Renee’s sister Jenn, and follows four women whose husbands and fathers are “connected” mob men, including infamous Mafia turncoat Sammy “The Bull” Gravano’s daughter, Karen, who moved to Arizona with her family when her father entered the witness protection program in the mid-1990s.

Mob Wives Recap – Real Stink and Man Muscles

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 25, 2011

Sorry folks, I dont have time to recap this show.  Instead I give you VH1’s recap which is still pretty good.

Attention gangsters and gangstettes! This week’s episode of Mob Wives picks up where last week’s left off, with Renee Graziano (aka @ReneeGmobwives) going toe-to-toe with Karen Gravano (aka @KarenGravanoVH1) outside of Carla Facciolo‘s birthday party. We’ve seen reunions on the North Pole that are less frosty than this one!
We pick up with a quick rehash of last week’s climactic verbal altercation, punctuated by Karen’s new assessment of the situation between her and Renee. “[Renee] doesn’t own Staten Island and she’s not gangster, so she better move the f*** out of my way,” Karen so bluntly puts it. It’s at this time that Drita decides to come outside and play peacemaker, despite her belief that Renee is a drama queen. Renee’s is clearly on the defensive at this point, and her reaction to Drita is a surefire notable quotable:

“I’m not gonna ask Carla f****** d***.”

Well alrighty then!

Renee’s refusal of Drita’s suggestion to offer up an olive branch to Karen, as you might expect, begins to irritate Drita, much like a sliver underneath one’s skin. As we saw in this week’s bonus clip, one second she’s cool as a cuke:

And the next she’s all Hulked out.

Unico National Goes After “Mob Wives”, “Jersey Shore” and “Sopranos” With The Same Old Stick

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 20, 2011

Unico National is coming out against all things Italian again to flap their lips about the new hit show on Vh1 “Mob Wives”, based on women who are  allegedly “connected” in Staten Island.

A rep for the Italian interest group — called UNICO National — took no mercy on the new show … telling TMZ,Mob Wives” is “trash TV like ‘Jersey Shore.’ I hope it dies because no one watches it.”

The rep adds, “We were mobsters and mafiosos with ‘The Sopranos,’ bimbos and buffoons with ‘Jersey Shore,’ and now we’re back where we started. It’s a disgrace.”

Funny enough — “The Sopranos” and “Jersey Shore” … two of the most popular shows in TV history.

The purpose of Unico who has chapters all over the country:

UNICO ObjectivesTo promote and enhance the Image of Italian Americans; for members to be of service to the community; to promote Italian heritage and culture; to promote, support and assist charitable, scientific, cultural, educational, and literary projects; to promote members’ interest in public welfare; and, to cooperate with others in civic, social and cultural development.

This is my opinion:

Mob Wives Recap – Karen Gravano Grabs The ‘Bull’ By The Balls

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 19, 2011

Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Carla Facciolo and Renee Graziano of Mob Wives


If I take anything away from this show, I will no longer say mobster but ‘mahbsta!.  The accents are off the hook and now I know that Jersey is getting a bad rap!  All people who have such accents here in Jersey migrate from Staten Island!  That’s my story and I am sticking to it.

The women are in various ways affiliated with da mahb and are serving the following sentences for their crime:

“Doing hard time without ever being behind bars”

“Life as an informants daughter”


“10 – 12 years as a single mom”

8 Years of raising twins alone

We begin with Renee Graziano whose father is Anthony Graziano.   Renee was raised with glitz and glamour and misses her strength and power.   She is a single mother of a 16-year-old and appears to spend a lot of money per the camera’s and we know how that worked out for the Guidice’s. 

Karen Gravano is up next who is the daughter of Sammy “The Bull” Gravano.  If you don’t know who that is, then stop watching this show now.  You will be clueless for the rest of the season and story line.    She currently lives in Arizona and has had to go into hiding while her father ratted on his crime buddies. 

Renee and Karen used to be friends but severed ties from Karen’s father turning evidence.  Karen is returning to Staten Island in order to complete her book and I don’t know about you guys, but Karen… YOU IN DANGER GIRL!!  I wonder how much VH1 security was assigned to Karen to ensure her safety.

VH1 Premiere’s New Show – Mob Wives And I am Loving It ALREADY!!

Posted by ImaJustSaying on April 17, 2011


Watch an extended sneak peek of VH1’s newest series, Mob Wives, premiering Sunday April 17 at 8/7c and I for one can’t wait!  This theme is right up my alley and this will make for great recapping.  We got serious accents tawkin and a serious stereotype threat.  I loved Victoria Gotti’s reality show “Growing Up Gotti” which gives you an insight to family members of mobsters who are presented with obstacles trying to out live the family name and the complications of living a normal life and mostly Victoria’s struggle with raising teen age sons amongst the hype and fame during the airing of HBO’s show “The Soprano’s”.   I really like Victoria and don’t view her anything but a single mother raising kids with a cloud of gloom and doom over her head for her father’s business dealings and notorious conviction.
