Reality TV - This and That!

So, I've been vegging laying in bed trying to clear my DVR because it's almost full.

 

First (and most importantly) I do apologize for the mis-mash title...I have been fishing on the internet as I've watched various reality shows to see who's doing what to whom (is that phonetically correct?  Whom?)....

 

Anyway, they're just little bits of what I can remember (not the best memory as you guys know) of some of these ummm...mind if I call them "idiots"....are unbelievable.  I also apologize for all of my run-on sentences.

 

OK, so I googled if Jay has been deported as what I read:

 

"Smith and Martson have a court date set for August 7, 2019, according to Martson, and she has stated, “He will be deported on August 7 unless he runs, which is what I’m assuming he’s probably [planning] … The thing that’s really frustrating is he’s here illegally now … I did file for his adjustment of status, and then two weeks later he screwed up again, so I withdrew it.” Martson continued, “[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] has already been here to arrest him. They know where he works… I mean obviously, if they come to my house at this point, I’m gonna tell them where he’s at. So I’m not sure why he’s still sticking around because we got a letter three weeks ago saying he has an active warrant for his arrest.”

If you're keeping up with this one remember Ashley went to Jay's barber shop where he 'hangs out' and found out he's been very naughty with some girl(s) in their bathroom.  She was shown on camera talking to the owner who showed her video of him (the owner) throwing Jay out of the barber shop.  

 

I read several articles and according to Ashley TLC has had her lie on several occasions just to make this more dramatic.  She has been on several websites explaining herself and taking the haters on.  I don't know if it's true but I did read where she was in rehab trying to get her meds straight for depression and remember that she does have some major medical issues anyway.

 

I wish her the best.  However, it seems like she just jumps from one male to another.  It doesn't seem like she puts her two sons before anyone.  I know one can't believe everything on the internet, just saying.....

 

So, I googled "how much money does the TLC reality people get".  Here's a little that came up.  This is from:

https://www.newsweek.com/90-day-fiance-paid-how-much-money-what-happened-1251371

 

"According to prominent 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates, the amount of money each couple earns varies. A couple on 90 Day Fiancé proper rakes in $1,000 an episode; a couple on Before the 90 Days makes $500 an episode. Wages for Happily Ever After, however, can differ, with individual couples making anywhere from $2,000 an episode to $7,500 episode, Yates told Newsweek.

 

According to Nikki Cooper (wife of the guy (Chris) who loaned money and a place to live to David and his wife (remember they live(d) in the loft that doesn't have a kitchen...at all?  This is from his wife:

Fiance season 5) revealed the cast members only get paid $1,000 per episode plus $2500 to film the tell-all. As for the supporting cast members, such as friends and family, they get paid nothing to appear on the show.

David and his wife (whom I really like, she smart and cute....him? well I think they really love each other....also do the follow-up show called "Pillow Talk" with several other TLC - 90 day alumni.

 

While 'fishing' I found an article which compared TLC's payouts with Bravo's payouts.....quite a difference.  Remember, Bravo does the Real Housewives from ....well everywhere!  Ha!

 

Here's something I found out about Lisa Vanderpump's salary.  Actually it's difficult to put an exact amount on it (If only our country's secrets were as well protected....Ha!)  

 

This article is dated May 2017: 

According to Radar Online, Lisa Vanderpump has agreed to return for The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Season 8 after the Bravo execs bumped up her salary by quite a bit. Although the insider did not reveal how much exactly is Vanderpump’s salary when RHOBH Season 8 rolls in, it was said that she is now the highest paid housewife.

 

Lisa has decided to return for season 8 after getting a very lucrative deal that she simply could not refuse,” the insider said.

Putting the substantial salary increase aside, Lisa Vanderpump also agreed to return for the next season because she was reportedly happy with how Bravo was highlighting her charitable causes. Last season, fans of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills saw the cast fly to Hong Kong in support of Vanderpump’s advocacy for the humane treatment of animals.

So then I got bored and (while catching up on RHW where Camille spilt tea (is that how you say it) on air that Dorit and PK are being sued.  It's all true... Camille calls it like it is, you've gotta give her that.  However, it didn't seem like the right time and/or place to announce this:

 

From:https://www.realitytea.com/2019/01/14/rhob-dorit-kemsley-and-husband-pks-financial-problems-take-a-t...

 

Dorit, whose faux English accent has the same effect of nails dragging across the chalkboard, and her husband,  PK Kemsley, live a lavish lifestyle in Beverly Hills.  Where Boy George sleeps in your guestroom, and a $3 million car as a possible birthday present is nothing to bat a fake eyelash over.

However, it seems as though their lavish spending might have caught up with them. Not only is it time to pay the piper…their payments are late.

 

According to an article from The Blast, Dorit’s husband, PK Kemsley owes a man named Nicos Kirzis $1.2 million for an unpaid loan. Apparently, Kirzis filed a case in New York back in 2016. He claims PK had not repaid him even though he was supposed to by 2013.

PK responded by stating the bankruptcy he had filed in the U.K had removed all debt. However, Nicos countered that he had never been named as a creditor.  Therefore, he was still entitled to his payment.

In 2016, a New York judge agreed with Nicos. The judge ordered PK to pay the

$1.2 million. This means there is a chance Nicos could seize the PK’s assets in order to collect.  What will happen to Boy George!

The Blast also states that while PK has made a payment of $250,000, it only covered the interest which leaves an outstanding amount of $1,275,221.48.

As if that wasn’t bad enough, the article also mentions that Dorit and her hubby still owe the Bellagio for an unpaid casino marker, or an IOU, from back in 2013.

It’s a familiar sounding story where PK owed money, made a couple payments before he stopped, then used the excuse of the bankruptcy filing to get away from paying anymore.  And yes, I do know that is the purpose of filing for bankruptcy.

However, PK was able to reach an agreement with the casino. However, they since filed a motion asking the court to order a judgment for the remaining balance.  If the order is granted the Bellagio will be able to seize the Kemsleys’ assets as well.

Dorit better start pushing that swimsuit line!  Maybe Kyle Richards can sell them in her store? Or maybe Lisa Vanderpump can hire Dorit as her new SUR hostess?

 

I read another article where a judge told Dorit in California when married everything gets bunched (my word) together and her money isn't just her's it's PK's too.....so that's not good.

 

They are in the process of TRYING to sell their house.

Dorit Kemsley and Husband PK Attempt to Sell House on Million Dollar Listing After $4M Price Cut

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Dorit Kemsley and her husband Paul “PK” are attempting to sell off their Beverly Hills home, yet again.

The pair appeared on Million Dollar Listing: L.A. on Thursday, where they attempted to close a deal on the property, known as “Dawnridge,” which was first listed in August 2017 for $12.75 million.

During the episode, realtors James Harris and David Parnes take a second stab at selling the six-bedroom, seven-bathroom abode located near the Beverly Hills Hotel after it had failed to attract a buyer for months.

“It was way overpriced and as a result, it’s been sitting on the market for almost six months with nothing—no interest,” Parnes says.

With his new realtors, PK, an English businessman who also manages Boy George’s career, agreed to significantly drop the asking price to $8.995 million with the hope of not dipping below $8.5 million on a final offer.

However, after the agents throw a brokers’ open house and Parnes gets his first offer of $7.45 million with a counter offer at $7.7 million, things go south for the sale thanks to PK.

 

Every time I watch a show (as I've told you guys) I'm more interested in the 'background' (i.e. what we don't see...) of these people and places.

 

I learned a long time ago what my Mother taught me, "You can't judge a book by it's cover" is really true....especially with these .....reality shows (that word reality is a joke)...but hey, it's better than the news....

 

I read several articles that said Dorit and her husband (PK) are in trouble with back taxes (over a million there) and on and on.  Remember where he was managing Boy George?  I assume he still is....but I guess he isn't good at managing money.

 

One article I read said that PK is just not good at telling Dorit "no" and that's some of his problem...

 

After reading that I started thinking....Humm...that also sounds like some of these other reality shows...like TLC...those idiots also have trouble saying the word "no" to each other too....

 

Anyway, I don't think anyone (I know I don't) wishes bad things to happen to others.  I do hope they are all able to get their financial situation straightened out.

 

I guess no matter how much money you have....it's never enough.

 

ps  If you were able to get through this.....I applaud you.  I was bored just typing the @#$% thing!  I sure didn't want to read it over.  I apologize for any boo boo's in the typing...

 

I posted this because I know some of you don't like going on other websites.  I'm sure many of you are just as curious about some of this (let's call it stuff rather than trash...sounds better) as I am...
