All About the Tea’s Reality Person of the Year: Legal Edition

Posted on Dec 16 2014 - 12:11pm by Stacy Slotnick, Esq.

AATT’s Person of the Year Legal Edition Collage

TIME magazine introduced the tradition of naming a person who has been the most influential in the news for better or worse but All About the Tea wants you to decide who should be its 2014 Person of the Year: Legal Edition. There is no denying Bravo TV cast members put the “law” in lawlessness in 2014.

Not all civil and criminal disputes are created equal. Generally speaking, greed, arrogance, a gargantuan ego, and sociopathic tendencies act as the catalyst for legal drama. Even though some of AATT’s 4 finalists (see below) for Person of the Year did not self-destruct in 2014, their PR and legal clout sure did.

1. Divorce Divas Phaedra Parks & Ramona Singer:

RHOA’s Phaedra Parks broke her silence regarding her marriage woes on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in October – sort of.  She dispelled certain rumors while igniting others.  “I’m an attorney myself and so I wanted him [Apollo Nida] to have the best [lawyers and investigators] so we could fight this together, but obviously it did not turn out like that,” remarked the author of “Secrets of the Southern Belle: How to Be Nice, Work Hard, Look Pretty, Have Fun, and Never Have an Off Moment.”

Phaedra has said Apollo’s dishonest, illegal actions constitute the ultimate betrayal but did the self-proclaimed “sassy but always classy atty” know about his illegal activity when it was occurring?  Phaedra has insisted she was a devoted wife to the bitter end despite the fact she skipped his fraud sentencing and distanced herself as soon as his legal issues – he pled guilty to identity theft and fraud – became public. 

“I tried to make my marriage work because I have strong values and I believe that people make mistakes,” Ramona Singer, 57, said. “But you reach a point where you realize the other person isn’t putting in as much effort as you are.”  Ramona is steadfast in her resolve to go through with the divorce she filed in January. The coroner ruled the cause of death on Singer’s 22-year marriage to Mario Singer, 60, to be his alleged affair with a 32-year-old.

You can count on Ramona’s “crazy eyes” to be out in full force and effect when a court addresses how her future RHONY earnings, Upper East Side condo, and Hamptons estate will be divided.  On the other hand, Phaedra may ask a court to terminate Apollo’s visitation rights; convictions of certain crimes cause the legal system to limit or terminate custody, visitation, and parental rights.  Stay tuned as Ramona and Phaedra navigate the dark, treacherous waters of divorce.

 

2. Under The Influence (Bella Hadid):

RHOBH’s Yolanda Foster and Mohammed Hadid’s second daughter, Bella, was arrested Tuesday, July 22 on the Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles for drinking and driving.  “This reckless choice was so shocking and disappointing to me,” Yolanda, a former model, explained in her Bravo TV blog.  Bella evidently drove through a stop sign and almost collided with an L.A. County Sheriff’s Department police car. Law enforcement sources say the minor blew a .14 on the breathalyzer, which is almost double the legal limit.  FYI: 17-year-olds are not permitted to have any percentage of alcohol in their system while driving.  To add insult to injury, Bella was reportedly driving on a suspended license at the time of her arrest. 

The court suspended Hadid’s license for a year, put her on six months probation, and required her to complete 25 hours of community service and 20 hours of AA meetings.  Is this an appropriate penalty? While David Foster’s stepdaughter did not harm anyone when she elected to drive drunk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an estimated 10,322 people died in drunk driving crashes in 2012.  That is 10,322 people too many. 

 

3. Bitten in Broad Daylight (Kim Richards):

After the former child star’s beloved pit bull Kingsley attacked her niece, Alexia Umansky, RHOBH’s Kim Richards removed the dog – which she called her “best friend” – from her home. 

Kingsley has a long history of biting: It attacked its trainer on an episode of the show and court documents filed by longtime family friend Ellen Catherine (“Kay”) Rozario assert that Kingsley left her with bloody wounds on her hand, arm, and back.

Rozario’s lawsuit dated December 12, 2014 names both Richards and Evolution Film & Tape, Inc., which is the company that produces the Real Housewives series, as defendants.  Rozario’s legal theory against producers is that they fraudulently concealed evidence of Kingsley’s violent tendencies.  Richards faces a lawsuit for negligence, statutory strict liability based on California’s Dog Bite Statute, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other claims. 

California is a strict liability state in which its dog bite statute makes the owner of a pooch strictly liable for any dog bite from the moment ownership begins, provided the victim was not trespassing, provoking the dog or performing a paid service involving the dog. Strict liability is plaintiff-friendly insofar as the defendant’s actual negligence or intent to harm is immaterial.

 

4. Fraudulent Felons Teresa Giudice & Apollo Nida:

Last but certainly not least are Teresa Giudice and Apollo Nida. The fraud perpetrated by Teresa, who is scheduled to report to prison on Jan. 5 is so legendary it is the stuff of law school hypotheticals – well, the pathetic ones at least.  Teresa and Joe Giudice pleaded guilty in March to tax evasion, hiding assets from bankruptcy court, and conspiring to commit mail and wire fraud. 

Meanwhile, RHOA’s Apollo Nida tucks himself into bed each night at the Federal Medical Center in Lexington, Kentucky. He pleaded guilty to bank fraud and identity theft earlier this year. Apollo was sentenced to eight years behind bars.

You decide who should be anointed “AATT’s Person of the Year” by voting in our poll and posting your thoughts below.


On a personal note, I want to wishAll About the Tea posters and fans a Happy Holidays plus a New Year filled with health and prosperity. I look forward to covering all the latest legal news for you in 2015!

      I know! They all add their own special something to legal drama.

        There’s something there for animal lovers, felon fetishes, domestic issues, out-of-control minors, … o.0

          Love your summary! Bravolebrities gave us a whole lot of meat to chew on this year, even for us vegetarians (tofu anyone?).

          • twifan2

            Pass on the tofu. TY anyways. 🙂
            *takes a bite of cold cut combo sammich*

      • misstc

        Hi Stacy! Is this the blog U were speaking of over the weekend? I guess my biggest question is: If Apollo couldn’t rat on Phaedra (being involved, etc.) due to being married, can he spill all the tea once they R divorced & possibly reduce his sentence & have a chance of keeping his visitation rights?

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Here is my only concern with the veracity of any evidence he has against Phaedra: Why would his lawyers not have come forward with such exculpatory or accessory evidence when they were negotiating his plea deal for him? If he seeks custody when he is released from prison and/or visitation rights now, he should 100% come forward with evidence of Phaedra’s wrongdoing. It would not reduce his sentence, however, at this point.

          • misstc

            Thank you Stacy. I didn’t think so either; realizing one reveals all before/on day of sentencing. The only catch, I thought, was that a married person could not testify against his married partner. Guess now time will tell, or when the divorce papers are signed.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            You are very welcome. I think you are referring to spousal privilege in which one spouse cannot be COMPELLED to give testimony against his or her spouse who is a defendant in a criminal trial or the subject of a grand jury proceeding. The accused spouse may claim the privilege or the other spouse may claim it on behalf of the accused spouse.

  • WestCoastFeed

    After much deliberation, I had to opt for the Fraud Broad.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Do you mean the broke and the beautiful? Sorry, but I love alliteration. So Teresa’s fraud trumps a dog bite, divorce proceedings, and a DUI WestCoastFeed? Tell me more.

      • WestCoastFeed

        The dog bite was a close second. That dog should have been put down the first time it bit someone.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          The three major dog bite incidents involving Kingsley are disturbing, and California law favors the injured plaintiff. There is no such thing as “one bite rule” or disputed liability in the Golden State. The dog owner is “strictly liable” for the injuries caused by their dog. The law does not allow for a dog owner to dispute who was at fault – the dog owner is automatically responsible to pay for your damages.

          • misstc

            The dog bite inflicted on longtime friend was serious from what I saw on Inside Edition. For an older person like Rozario (in her 70s/80s) that dog could have killed her, and he bit her in three different places.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            You are indeed correct. Her injuries appeared rather severe and she is a sympathetic plaintiff. Richards allegedly refused to pay her medical bills after the pooch badly injured her at Richards’ Los Angeles home. The dog reportedly bit through Rozario’s hand, down to the bone, and also damaged the woman’s arm after she used it to shield her face. Richards, knowing that her dog had a propensity to be dangerous, was negligent in allowing the dog near “Kay.”

          • twifan2

            DANG! DimKim REFUSED to pay Rozario’s med. bills?!
            DimKim might just get my vote! >(

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Hey, after having all the facts, it is 100% acceptable to change your vote. Too bad we can’t have that in politics. Imagine how productive our politicians would be if we could vote them out of office ASAP if they did not accomplish their goals expeditiously.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Kim was always my favorite of that cast until this happened. I know addicts have problems with responsibility, but this was just too much.

          • twifan2

            She should never of had that type of dog or any dog for that matter.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            According to the Insurance Information Institute, the cost of treating dog bite injuries is rising. In 2003, the average dog bite claim was $19,162. In 2011, the cost rose to $29,396.

          • twifan2

            Those figures have to be ‘without’ hospital stay. AND too many variables left out. Like requiring plastic surgery, deep wound treatments, rabie shots,…etc
            I wonder what they are now? :/

          • Stacy Slotnick

            I know. Exorbitant, for sure. Dog bite laws are rapidly changing with each passing case as the severity increases.

          • twifan2

            Yes, I know rabies shots costed over a little $11K for the series here last year. 🙁

          • misstc

            Wow!! Kim lost plenty of brain cells from previous alcohol/drug abuse; and being related to Hilton arrogance made her think she was above the law. Any chance she could go to jail for negligence?

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Criminal charges have not been filed against Kim. California has a dog-bite statute listed under its Civil Code section 3342. However, its an excellent question as some states, like Pennsylvania and Florida, have laws in which any injuries caused by a “dangerous dog” (there are standards for what “dangerous” entails”) may result in criminal charges for the owner.

          • misstc

            Yes Stacy, but here in Florida the law seems murky. About four years ago, a 12 yo boy got chewed up by a pit bull and nearly died. It was all over the news. Here’s the kicker. I live catty corner across the street from where it happened & will vouch these people who live there are not of best character and have lots of dogs. The matriarch insisted her dog would never hurt anyone, and surrendered one of two pit bulls, which was taken away & put down. I learned a week later that dog that was put down was not guilty. The one that mauled the child was her son’s dog living 200 feet in another trailer; and she pulled a bait & switch. Now 4 years later, my dog got loose & got mauled by her dog in middle of the street. The officer said since both dogs in street, I could not press her for vet bills.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Have you consulted an attorney yet to determine if you have a case? A police officer isn’t a lawyer. I would check with a FL attorney to see if you have a viable case. It sounds like you do since your dog was not unlawfully on her property.

          • misstc

            Both dogs were in the middle of the street – no man’s land I call it, or neutral zone; since both dogs got out of respective owner’s yards.

          • misstc

            Also, Florida laws are wonky.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I kind of wanted to have Teresa be up there all by herself but I understand why Apollo shares top honors. IDK why he doesn’t chap my hide the way Tre does but he doesn’t. It’s the way Teresa rubbed her stolen goods in everyone’s faces and her continuing saga of trying to get out of jail–her thinking she is TOO GOOD to go to jail and her utter refusal to acknowledge what she did, her lack of apologies to the many victims who suffered under her theft, and her complete and total lack of remorse or ownership of what she did.

    She truly does chap my hide. I can’t wait until she punches a few guards–and I do predict violence in her prison stint–AND more time to boot!

    • misstc

      I’m sure BigBertha will put Tre in her place.

      • twifan2

        Thanks so much, misstc!
        Now I have a mental image of Big Bertha getting a lap dance from Tre! 😮
        *running away screaming here!*

        • misstc

          Tre won’t be running anywhere as BigBertha’s minions will be holding Tre down. LOL

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I hope Teresa punches in the face first–so she can have a little more time added on!

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Here is the Shakespearian tragedy: Apollo is viewed more favorably than Teresa but Teresa got less time in jail (for now). Isn’t it ironic that two employs of Bravo are serving and about to serve jail time for fraud? The network pays them to be “themselves” and apparently “themselves” like to engage in fraudulent behavior.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        You are so right! But I think the reason why Teresa is viewed so badly is because of her obnoxious, arrogant, entitled behavior. Apollo didn’t flaunt it and rub it in people’s faces the way Teresa did–although I should include a disclaimer: I have not watched ATL for at least 3 years–maybe 4. I can’t stand Neigh Neigh.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Yes! Apollo does not have the PR problem because he does not whine while Teresa fails to take responsibility. Apollo did not fire and sue his lawyers. He will surely get off early for good behavior and completing this treatment program. Whether he has a career post-prison in the spotlight is tough to determine but he is going about it the right way if that is his desire.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            You are so right–Apollo’s doing his timethe right way and as you said, will get time off for GB. Teresa, OTOH, will not be able to hold that temper–I am almost certain about this. She’s got the most violent temper of all the HW, including all franchises. The way she tossed Andy Cohen down like he was a rag doll–and apparently, she did the same thing with her “Crisis Manager” (rolling eyes at that).

          • WestCoastFeed

            And the crisis manager is also in the news today talking about the book she has coming out. It will include chapters about dealing with Tre and what a difficult client she was.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I actually think I might want to read that book!

          • Stacy Slotnick

            I agree with you completely. She showed us all, knowing we were watching, her inability to maintain self-control. She cannot use adult-like restraint when provoked. That is not a good quality to have in prison.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            That’s why I think she’s going to punch someone–maybe an inmate, even a guard. Flipping that table was very telling. Not very many people would do such a violent act in the middle of a nice restaurant. It showed right there that she can’t control herself.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            It is so ironic that the criminal behavior she found so objectionable in Danielle Staub was behavior she herself was engaging in at the time. Fascinating how the criminal mind works.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            YES! Teresa–meet Karma!

            I remember how she screeched out, “I don’t have NO SKELETONSES in my closets!”

            She’s had a few lines that have come back to bite her. Also, “I won’t live in a used houses because they isn’t cleansly enough for me.”

            She’ll be scrubbing toilets in prison! How’s that for “cleansly” Teresa? Oh yes, that cold hard slap of karma–it always comes.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    Oh–and does anyone know why Apollo is in a medical center prison and not a regular one? TYIA.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Yes, he’s in a facility that offers an addiction rehab program. And if he successfully completes the program his sentence will be shortened.

      • twifan2

        He’s rehab’ing fro drug usage? Or what? Do you know, WCF?

        • WestCoastFeed

          I believe it is alcohol, not drugs.

          • twifan2

            Sorry, I included alcohol as a drug in my question.
            Wonder if he got any Pruno in prison yet? :/

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Good question. He actually does not have a substance addiction issue but law enforcement sources claim that Apollo used a previous DUI arrest as a way to get into the program.

          • twifan2

            Maybe as way to get obtain ‘early release’?
            That would seem kind of easy for him to get thru-rehab program, I mean. He’s not really addicted to alcohol.
            But, 20 days less of a sentence is better than serving out the complete sentence.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            He could get an early release from prison based on a number of factors, such as prison staff recommendations, sentencing judge’s report, victim statements, and mental or psychiatric exams. Now, taking those items into account, what is the difference between Apollo and Teresa’s chances for early release from prison?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Oh, oh! It doesn’t look good for Teresa.

          • twifan2

            I would think Apollo would be a ‘model’ prisoner. Tre, idk-she MIGHT not hold her her tempter once in there.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            She has not shown in any way shape or form that she could be a model prisoner.

          • WestCoastFeed

            And her current antics are most definitely not helping her.

          • twifan2

            Maybe JUST maybe, Tre will be quiet, submissive. Like that will happen!
            She’s too much of a ‘spoiled child’ diva!
            *facepalm*

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Here is my prediction: She will complain to guards that she isn’t getting enough time to meet with her lawyers and try to create a constitutional issue on that basis. You just watch, she’ll be a nightmare for guards.

          • WestCoastFeed

            What lawyers? She keeps firing her lawyers.

          • twifan2

            uuummm, I don’t think so. Not with the guards at least.
            I think she’ll try to pull a stupid stunt. Bribery. Get her cellmates to do her work.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            Because she generates so much negative publicity for others, will the prison system bend over backwards to give into her demands?
            What is your guess which prison she will be assigned to? Describe that prison, please.
            Jodi Arias was allowed quite a few interviews after she was found guilty and in jail. Do you think Teresa will be allowed that same privilege?

          • Stacy Slotnick

            I do not see her smoothly sailing through her 15-month sentence. Some reports say she has been assigned to Danbury Federal Prison in Connecticut. Danbury is a low-security federal correctional institution. This is the same facility that inspired the hit Netflix show Orange Is the New Black.

          • Mary Stonehouse

            I am one of the few who didn’t watch ” The Orange is the New Black” series, but I am in line at the library to read the book.

            After posting my questions, I read the entire thread. Again, ‘Ms.Slotnick, I am so impressed not only by your knowledge, but your writing ability. Thank you!

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Thank you Mary Stonehouse. I am very glad you could join us today for this discussion. I appreciate immensely your compliments and I am delighted you’ve found them to be helpful in understanding the legal nuances surrounding Bravolebrities. Let me know what you think of Orange Is the New Black after you’ve read it. 🙂

          • Addie2U

            Hi Miss Mary. A few months ago I got so tired of being out of the loop re “The Orange is the New Black” I had a marathon session & watched the entire series in 1 week. It was quite good but as is always the case, I’ve heard the book is much better.

            How’s your recovery going?
            Also, please be cautious with too much reading — after all you’ve been through you need to be careful you don’t strain your eyes.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Even people on death row are permitted to give interviews to the press, so what a coup for Matt Lauer or Robin Roberts! Will a network purchase her interview? Probably.

          • twifan2

            Bravo has the say on who she can give interviews to, AFTER Bravo tho.
            I don’t know if she’s signed her contract for the new season yet. But even if she hasn’t, she is still under Bravo for at least 2 yrs I believe.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Teresa has given interviews to a variety of media outlets such as Entertainment Tonight and The View. These types of non-compete interview clauses in network contracts are often struck as unenforceable.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        I had no idea he needed rehab. He never looked like an alcoholic to me but then, I don’t watch ATL at all so I haven’t really seen him much.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      It is reported that Apollo agreed to undergo 500 hours in an “intense” drug treatment during his prison sentence to ensure an early release date for himself.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Ah, thank you, Stacy! We are lucky to have you!

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Not a problem! Glad I could help!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Stacy, have you been following the Phaedra vs Angela Stanton defamation suit? The last I heard, the judge ordered Phaedra to sit again for a deposition and this time he ordered her that she had to answer questions about Apollo. I assume the depo has been sealed and is private. But at some point won’t Phaedra have to try to take this to court or find a way to weasel out of it?

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Yes, Phaedra has been embroiled in this defamation lawsuit that supposedly began when Stanton published a book, Lies of a Real Housewife. After months of trying to avoid questioning about Apollo’s criminal activities, Phaedra will now be forced to talk about what she allegedly knew. Parks will have to sit for another deposition where she will be cross-examined by Stanton’s attorney because her answers from her previous one were allegedly incomplete.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      The key issue many people don’t understand about filing a slander or libel lawsuit is that they will end up highlighting the exact statement they wanted crushed by pursuing litigation.

      • twifan2

        It’s like Phaedra is taking a page out of Tre’s inane behavior!
        She should have just stayed quiet.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Do you think Phaedra had the foresight to think a lawsuit could backfire?

          • twifan2

            Imo, she didn’t think it thru.
            She should have. I wonder what she would have told a client to do, if they were in her situation?

          • Stacy Slotnick

            That is what is surprising to me. Did she not know Angela would get her say? It is bizarre.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Phaedra appears to be just as unable to think things through as Teresa is.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            I guess so. I always thought Phaedra carried herself well in interviews so I drank the Kool-Aid but her legal moves strike me as less than savvy.

      • WestCoastFeed

        That’s why I expect that she will try to weasel out of it. Probably by offering a sum of money to Angela and getting the settlement sealed.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    I have to also say that Kimbecile should have never gotten a dog that needed an alpha-type owner. She didn’t even try to listen to what that trainer told her to do–and now look what happened. The poor dog should have been partnered with someone who could BUY A CLUE!!

    Also, I am going to say it right now–I believe that Kimbecile is going to be taking her ex-husband’s painkillers while he is staying with her. She’s an addict–cancer victims are given all kinds of strong pain meds (and as much as they want). Kim won’t be able to resist. But then I never did think she was sober–maybe for a few days or even a week but I truly believe she has continued to use throughout all the filming.

    • twifan2

      Sober, I think she was.
      Off drugs, never!

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Yes–that is actually what I meant. I always thought she looked more drugged out than drunk. I never saw her act overtly drunk. But I do think she’s going to have a heyday with those painkillers.

        • twifan2

          She’ll hoard away as much as she can, for as long as she can.
          I hope she doesn’t withhold any meds from her ex! Hopefully he’ll be on IV push!

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            What do you want to bet she climbs in bed with him to share his IV push. He’s probably in no state to even be able to tell. I really do think she would drink his morphine. She’ll figure a way to siphon it out of there. Addicts always figure out a way!

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Remember too, the law does not require Kim to be culpable in any way. California passed a statute that eliminated the “one-free bite” rule by holding a dog owner liable even if the dog has never bitten anyone or shown a tendency to bite. No matter how much care she used to protect those around Kingsley, it is immaterial. You bite, you get sued, is how it works in CA.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Wow. But I kind of think that should be the case. An owner HAS to be able to control her/his dog. Especially one of those kinds of dogs. I love all animals but those dogs need special owners who really put in the time. But watching Kim with Kingsley–I predicted this very thing at the time. I truly did. And now here it is.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          I completely agree. I adore animals and spend time working with some wonderful organizations that support dogs but you can’t have a dangerous animal around people. Period.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I so agree, Stacy. I really feel bad for that poor dog. This isn’t his fault–it’s KIM’S.

        • fred

          you did not

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            Yes, I did. But I’m not going to argue with a moron about it.

  • Chloe

    Another great blog by Stacy. Thank you. My vote goes to the Bravo felons Teresa and Apollo.
    They deserve the honor with conviction records and all.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Thanks Chloe! I can definitely see why you would go that route — fraud is nothing to scott at in the criminal justice system.

  • Awesome blog Stacy!! It’s fascinating all the legal issues surrounding these reality stars. The only one I have a little sympathy for is Ramona. She’s not in her right mind half the time and Mario is a miserable husband. The same could be said for Kim Richards. Tre & Apollo wins hands down.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Great analysis! I see where you are coming from entirely re Ramona. I actually thought the statement she put out about making mistakes and then when the person does not change, you move on was excellent PR. She tried and it didn’t work so she is moving on with her life. I think she probably makes more money than him so it will be interesting to see how their businesses and properties are divided.

      • Good point about splitting their finances. I’m sure Mario will take Ramona to the cleaners considering they don’t have a prenup.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          I agree. I think money and image probably keeps Ramona up at night. She has more to lose in the divorce. Although, doesn’t his family own some kind of jewelry business? I know they both have money but her future RHONY earnings is what he will go after.

          • misstc

            But wasn’t Mario the breadwinner all along, with Ramona working her butt off to keep THEIR business going? Bravo pay is probably only about $100K per season? The jewelry biz by far is the earner?

          • Stacy Slotnick

            That’s a good question. She has lucrative businesses with her beauty, cosmetics, and wine lines. Moreover, she may be a part owner of True Faith Jewelry. Ramona Singer Pinot Grigio will keep her afloat for many years; it is just a matter of whether she’ll have to split profits from her company with Mario.

  • cait

    Sorry guys, gonna have to use “other” as Teresa needs to be in a box of HER OWN !

      Ramona is surely a polarizing figure. Do you mean to say that her treatment of Mario may have set the divorce wheels in motion?

      • cait

        It probably not the only reason. When, previously, they were working through some difficulties, Gob-On-Legs saying “Ooohh, I think I’m pregnant ! and Mario, lets renew our wedding vows” This woman is unhinged, don’t know how he stayed with her so long !

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Those episodes you describe probably were cries for help and attention. Their divorce no doubt will see fireworks galore. People do not always act rationally during divorce and that is very understandable considering the emotional and financial hardship associated with divorce. There is a LOT of financial wrangling as the house has to be split and things like TVs, furniture and cars are also thrown into the mix. What many people forget about, though, is the potentially most valuable asset: your spouse’s retirement account.

  • misstc

    Stacy, I posted about dog laws in FL far down below. Just wondering if U have any comment about it.

  • misstc

    Before reading your bio at: http://t.co/qg9mqEd9fB , I had no idea how a busy person you are and want to thank you for taking precious time to answer questions for us here. Happy Holidays to you!!

    • Stacy Slotnick

      I am glad you checked out my credentials (bio)! You are very sweet and considerate. I have the immense joy of getting to do work that is both meaningful and exciting, and that includes speaking with AATT posters to help clarify legal issues and amplify legal trends. I’m busy, yes, but I actually enjoy juggling multiple projects at once. Happy Holidays and thank you again for your splendid comments!

  • Bonita Gee

    I said it … I said it, and Wendy Williams announced it today on her Hot Topics segment of her show.. Theresa Giudice WILL BE going to the SAME PRISON Martha Stewart was in………. Aaaaahhhhhh!!
    now start my thread…. CHOP, CHOP! Heeeeeeeeeeeeeee Heeeeeeeeeeee!!
    But I didn’t know Phaedra was trying to get visitations rights away from Apollo. Damn, that’s cold. Eight years a long time to NOT see your kids.

    • WestCoastFeed

      If Wendy is correct, Teresa is going to be disappointed. She wanted the CT facility which is closer to home and easier for the girls to visit her.

      • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

        Oh good–you just answered my question. Thank you. I thought MS went to VA and not CT.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Yes, Martha wanted the CT prison, too, but the warden didn’t want to have a celebrity among his inmates.

          • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

            I can’t really blame the warden. Ugh–and especially imagine getting an entitled non-celebrity reality television train-wreck like Teresa–she’s going to be a handful.

        • twifan2

          Alderson, West Virginia.

      • twifan2

        Where did Leona Helmsley serveherr time? I thought it was in Lexington, Ky. Wendy said that Leona was at Danbury.

      • Stacy Slotnick

        Judicial recommendations and requests by criminals for designation have no binding effect on the Bureau of Prisons. Although such recommendations may receive consideration, formal designation decisions are confirmed by the BOP. Factors that will influence a designation include (1) the expected length of incarceration; (2) any prior commitments (custodial sentences); (3) any history of violence. Consideration is also given to factors relating to the individual defendant, including the proximity of her family and/or attorneys and programming needs (e.g., drug treatment). Therefore, barring overpopulation issues, defendants who pose only a minimal security risk will ordinarily be eligible for designation to a minimum security institution.

    • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

      Isn’t that much further away that the OITNB one–didn’t MS go somewhere in Virginia?

      • Jennymckitty

        It’s in WV…about 45 minutes from my parents. We can stay with them when AATT goes to visit Tre. It will be fun.

    • cait

      She can’t stop his parental rights, surely, unless he has criminal problems regarding children ! She grabbed him up ‘cos he was a crim so she could control him ! Mmmm
      He’s not a clever boy so someone had to press his buttons last time around and this time as well ! She was there both times !

      • Stacy Slotnick

        No doubt she will try and make arguments against visitation and custody clearly will be with her while he is incarcerated. As for his parental rights, considering he has a long rap sheet, a court may at least entertain her arguments, if she has any, against terminating his rights but that is unlikely.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Phaedra has publicly said she wants her young sons to look back and have them think she handled her affairs with dignity and class. She may not want her sons exposed to prison and remember, she did not bring them to see him before he was sentenced. It is not a far stretch to think that she would try to limit his visitation with his boys.

      • Addie2U

        I have mixed feeling on this. On 1 hand I can certainly see her point — Young boys who grow up with their fathers in prison have a far great chance of ending up there themselves (it’s a psychological theory where they idolize &/or want to be like them). On the other hand, I feel for those 2 young boys not knowing their dad. Sad either way you look at it. ๏̯͡๏

        • Stacy Slotnick

          I agree. You have just described the type of logical analysis courts employ to determine custody, visitation, and parental rights issues. These are not easy questions to answer. A court will be looking at the totality of the circumstances should there be a custody, visitation or parental rights dispute.

          • Addie2U

            “Not easy questions to answer” may be the understatement of the year! I’m just imagining the countless families throughout the country involved in the system & logistical nightmare trying to make everyone happy (& the odds of nearly every one of them being disappointed when their unobtainable expectations aren’t met)!

            ETA: I read your bio & I wanted to personally thank you for taking time out of your busy (& quite impressive) schedule to give us a better understanding of not only what’s going on behind the scenes, but for putting the actual reality into the “reality” shows we watch. It’s too
            bad the “real” housewives that need a dose of reality the most aren’t reading here! ヅ

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Thanks Addie2U! You have made my day exponentially brighter. I think the legal system can be so convoluted and confusing it is refreshing to break down these really interesting issues for AATT. (I hope this attribute is what makes me a better lawyer — when I argue my case before a judge or arbitrator, I find it doubly effective to be clear and concise. There is no reason to “hide the ball.”)

            You explain very well the logistical nightmare that is family law. Family law attorneys and those who work for the state must take into account a variety of considerations when representing their “clients.” Moreover, the judge has oftentimes a difficulty time deciding these cases because the facts are less than clear when two parents paint very different pictures for the court.

  • 4theHighHeels_4theRawDeals

    You know–I just remembered something I read about Teresa being worried about her kids. It blew my mind at the time I read it–and I just remembered it this minute, thinking about her going to the VA facility that is so much further than CT.

    Teresa said, “I wish I could take my kids to prison with me.”

    That is SUCH a revealing statement as to this woman’s utter and complete selfishness. What kind of parent would EVER want their child, under ANY circumstances, to see the inside of a prison? Or even the outside of one.

    Teresa is beyond normal–she is sociopathic in her narcissistic, borderline, and histrionic tendencies. She really is probably the worst excuse for a mother that I have ever seen, read or heard about. What a POS.

    • cait

      Her badly behaved kids would cause riots in the prison and they would be moved to a secure unit ! RESULT !

            Riker’s Island, anyone?

          • Stacy Slotnick

            The federal Bureau of Prisons’ Designation & Sentence Computation Center tries to place prisoners within 500 miles of their home. One possibility is the federal prison camp in Danbury, Conn. Another is Alderson federal prison camp in West Virginia., which houses 1,116 female inmates and was home to Martha Stewart for five months. P.S. Martha Stewart played the PR game very well pre- and post-sentencing.

        • This is nice but sadly not an every day event where the visitors room is nicely adorned. And even this is too much to put a child through.

          • twifan2

            At least there isn’t a glass partition between the moms & their children.
            That one on the right bottom of the pic, looks what? ~ 5,7 yrs old?
            If their moms are serving more than 3 yrs or more, at least their moms can take advantage of this time together.

          • Right, there’s no glass partition because it’s a special one-time annual event not a regular weekly visit. Sadly.

          • misstc

            From what I can see in this pic, this place is nicer than some people’s homes LOL

          • Stacy Slotnick

            It is a noble experiment to try and make prison feel like home, but prison is supposed to be punishment for those who were found guilty of committing a crime.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Is this an actual image of one of their “events?” Wow.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          It begs the question whether the goal of prison/incarceration should be punishment, reform or a hybrid.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      I agree that there seems to be no moral compass which is a strikingly different scene from the one that played out in the Nida case.

      • Addie2U

        We have Teresa who is still blaming others & making excuses & then we have Apollo . . .

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Exactly. Their crimes fall under the same “fraud” umbrella but they have taken a very different path from one another in how they deal with the fallout from their wrongdoing.

          • Addie2U

            As foolish as Apollo looked (repeating his criminal behavior & ending up with another prison rap), at least he’s smart enough to know you look like a bigger fool when you deny your crimes (especially when there’s files upon files of documented evidence to back them up)! ヅ

            ETA: Proves that with some — their foolishness is limitless!

          • Stacy Slotnick

            You are right on all accounts. Moreover, being honest is a fundamental requirement if you want to grow as a person and follow a better destiny than you had before.

          • Guest

            Apollo certainly looked foolish repeating his criminal behavior & ending up with another prison rap but at least he’s smart enough to know you look like a bigger fool when you deny your crimes (especially when there’s files upon files of documented evidence to back them up)! ヅ

          • Addie2U

            Mr. Nida certainly looked foolish repeating his criminal behavior & ending up with another prison rap but at least he’s smart enough to know you look like a bigger fool when you deny your crimes (especially when there’s files upon files of documented evidence to back them up)! ヅ

    • Addie2U

      I believe Teresa said that because 1) she’s extremely enmeshed with her children and
      2) she struggles having intellectual conversations with her peers. Her kids are like her life preservers. They make her feel important & dare I say – somewhat intelligent (at least with the 2 younger ones).

    • BooHoo

      Yep, I thought the same thing when it came out if that obnoxious mouth.

    • BooHoo

  • colleen

    Correct me if I’m wrong but isn’t Federal Prison often so cushy it’s compared to a Country Club? Do they have issued prison garb?are they ever shackled or handcuffed?I don’t think there is a partition ever when people visit. Waaayyy too good for Giudices

    • Stacy Slotnick

      I love the analogy. State-controlled prison systems have traditionally been seen as more dangerous than their federal counterparts as they house more dangerous criminals. The Federal prison system is designed to house criminals convicted of violating Federal laws, such as large-scale drug traffickers, robbers of federally chartered banks, and immigration violators. In contrast, state prison systems house criminals such as murderers, rapists and those convicted of violent gun offenses.

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Federal prisons are used more for political offenders and white collar criminals than state prisons and they have higher levels of security.

      • THANK YOU!! It’s “tragic” because it tarnishes their good image. They need to stop pussyfooting around and get that girl into rehab, her problem is bigger than drinking.

        • noarguingwithstupid

          Thank you!!!!!! I’ve been watching the reruns today and that is the way they see it. Oh, yes, there is a lot of gnashing of teeth, but this “tragic Mistake” is truly nauseating to me!

          • And not to mention Yo’s admiration over the golden, royal, king penis, David. OMFG! Gag me with a spoon!!!

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Yes! They seem more concerned with the fact that she got caught rather than being focused on the source of the problem. My law school classmate was killed by a drunk driver who had prior DUI charges pending against him. I fail to find persuasive the argument that drunk driving incidents are isolated. I will forever speak out against drunk driving so that the memory of my friend who never had the chance to practice law or live beyond the age of 25 is never forgotten.

          • Morning Stacy. I’m so sorry for the senseless loss of your friend. When it comes to drunk driving I’m always baffled by the laws of this country. It’s like the laws are designed to enable drunk drivers to re-offend. Keep advocating and speaking out, we need to drive change.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            It was very kind of you to reply and encourage me to keep advocating for legislative action. My class rallied around the cause as a tribute to her. Your words are so very appreciated. The system unfortunately is designed to allow drunk drivers to reoffend and we have to work to change that. Thanks again and hope you have an excellent Wednesday!

          • Pinky Pie

            Hi Stacy!
            I agree with you, completely, about the DUI. Two of my friend’s lost sons by drunk drivers. I was really torn on which to vote for above. The DUI could have killed someone, so it seems like the worst. But, Teresa scamming banks of so much money is pretty big. I looked up the top 5 scams, and Teresa’s dollar amounts would fall on the list. Although, the author was probably referring to the most famous scams, liking selling the Brooklyn Bridge. Madoff made number 1.

          • Stacy Slotnick

            Thank you so much for sharing your story. My thoughts and prayers are with your two friend’s whose sons were killed by drunk drivers. It is horrible when lives are cut short by people who make horrendous decisions to get behind the wheel and drink while intoxicated.

            That is fascinating about the countdown of the top 5 scams. I worked as a legal consultant on a piece re Madoff and I bet you saw what I see now, namely, that Teresa and Bernie Madoff have many overlapping similarities in personality traits.

          • Pinky Pie

            Yes, I do see that about the personality similarities. A good friend was an Assistant D.A. In 1988 a gun man went into the building where my husband worked, and shot and killed many people. Our friend was on the case. My husband was home that day, thank God. Our friend kept calling and asking my husband questions about the layout of the building. The whole thing was really, and still is upsetting. We have many friends that are policemen. Our friend that is an Assistant D.A. Said, the gunman, who surrendered never showed remorse, never showed an ounce of sorrow for his actions. One of our policeman friends, said they, also, had encounters with the gunman while he was in prison/jail (it was hard for me to listen to at the time, as the killer shot into crowds running from him, through office hallways), again showed no remorse or emotion. I think Teresa has the emotional IQ of a 3 year old that sticks their tongue out at anyone correcting her. I see these same traits in Teresa. She has no sorrow or shame for what she has done.
            Congratulations on such a successful career!

          • Stacy Slotnick

            I am so sorry Pinky Pie. That is heartbreaking. What you have described is unfortunately very typical. Criminals do not show remorse or sorrow for their actions.

          • Pinky Pie

            Oh, thank you. But, my heart goes out to the loved ones that lost family and friends forever. The gunman got a life sentence, and from what I understand is still not showing remorse, they got him to surrender for a Togo’s sandwich. It was an engineering firm. I understand that guy, currently teaches computers in prison. I doubt Teresa will learn anything from being incarcerated. Teresa will probably still tell everyone she doesn’t know why this is happening. She has convinced herself that she is a good person that deserves luxury. So, sad!
            But, really Stacy, I hope you realize how well you have done. You deserve a pat on the back and a “good job,” I’m impressed.

  • Anne Green

    Has it been confirmed that Teresa will be surrendering to Camp Cupcake or is this just based on Wendy William’s word?

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Good Afternoon Anne. I am fairly certain Teresa’s designation has not been confirmed by the Bureau of Prisons yet. Don’t worry though as AATT will be on the story the moment a designation is assigned.

      • Anne Green

        Thanks Stacy!!! I should have known to wait for confirmation from AATT but I saw several posts that mentioned Camp Cupcake….I was just too curious…lol

        • Stacy Slotnick

          I completely understand. Initially it looked like Danbury but its not definite. We are all waiting with breath that is baited. 🙂 I think W. Virginia might be a better choice for all parties involved. She needs to reflect, and that might not happen should she have the kind of access to the outside world and her family that Danbury would afford. Though maybe it wouldn’t make the slightest difference.

  • cait

    What’s Camp Cupcake ?

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Camp Cupcake is what some dub the federal facility in Alderson, W.Va. in the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains. Martha Stewart served her sentence there. It is allegedly the “Country Club of Federal Prison.” Everyone at Alderson has a job and prison officials say most inmates initially work in the food service area. There are also jobs in the prison office, maintaining the prison grounds, and of course, sanitation.

  • cait

    Saw a documentary recently about a prison in Arizona where the warden has reintroduced chain-gangs for both men and women, never releases inmates because of over-crowding, he houses overspill in tents in the yard ! He has a lit Vacancy sign on all the time and removes everything from those not following the rules ! Says if they don’t like it then don’t come back ! NOW THAT’S A PROPER PRISON !

    • Stacy Slotnick

      Wow. What was this documentary called? No doubt a criminal defense attorney/ constitutional scholar would have a field day with this story!

      • BooHoo

        They have had him on 20/20, 60min too. He definitely runs a prison the way they should be run. No perks for his prisoners. Funny when the prisoners were complaining about their rights to a TV so he gave them that privilege but has all turned to one channel, a cartoon channel. He’s my hero when it comes to Wardens.

        • Stacy Slotnick

          Worse yet, turn the one TV channel to C-SPAN.

            Touche. Some people have a hard time accepting that prison isn’t supposed to be cushy or fun, regardless of whether you subscribe to the punitive v. rehabilitative school of thought.

          The one thing that I absolutely LOVE about Sheriff Joe is his ZERO tolerance for animal abusers. He also has animal rehab facility that the inmates run. I wrote to him once about the animal program and he took the time to write me back. God, I sound all groupie like, but we need tougher laws on animal abusers.

        Over here it was called “Inside” May also have been called “Inside America’s Toughest Prisons” Great series but those CO’s have a really hard time ‘cos they get the worst of the worst, and are in danger all the time ! Do they get paid the same as the Fed CO’s ?

          I don’t know about their salaries but I would think they are similar, give or take 5-10%. Thanks for the info on the documentary! Will definitely check it out.

        Stacy, I see where about 5 pm today the Attorney General , Feds and NJ local sheriff’s office all denied a raid took place. They said 100% this never went down yesterday or at anytime. Sad this article had everyone celebrating. I went on ROL posted they stole AATT story and had my a** ripped open telling me to go back over to AATT and stay there. No biggie, I have become a loyal reader and AATT is my favorite place to blog. So bummed I wanted this to be true. It is what SHOULD actually have happened. So is this true that the story is untrue. P.S. Always look forward to your insight and how nice it is that you take time out of your busy day answering questions. Happy Holidays.

          Hi BooHoo,

          Those agencies never released a press release so they didn’t say it directly. Allegedly, it was said to another site. We are working on a follow-up blog that we plan to issue tomorrow. Thanks for all your support.

          • BooHoo

            Thank you for getting back to me so fast. This is why I like AATT so much you care about your readers and if you cannot give us answers to our questions when asked you at least acknowledge with a reply. Have a great evening. Will be looking forward to your follow up blog.

      That’s the very controversial Joe Arpaio, (the 6 time elected sheriff of Maricopa County, AZ.) He presides over the prison Jodi Arias is in. I’m glad I read your comment as I didn’t realize their was a documentary about him. Thanks for mentioning. ヅ

    The prison you are talking about is actually a county jail. The sheriff who is over the jail is joe arpia (something like that) anyway if you watch msnbc lock up which features the cameras go in different prisons and jails. His jail is tough. All the ones that have been featured, the 1 in arizona is the toughest. I wish lock up would go to the prison tg will be going to. Dream on!!!!

    Is it true the news that came out 6 hours ago that the Atty Generals office and the local NJ sheriff office including the Feds are stating 100 percent this raid never took place. Does that mean the Grinch stole back our early Christmas. So sad, I was ecstatic thinking the Feds and Courts actually stepped up to the plate and did the proper thing by doing exactly what we were told happened. Which if this story wasn’t true than hopefully it lights a fire under the Feds asses and they do exactly what this story claimed to have been done. So sad, I thought justice was served and Karma bit Teresa in her ass.

      Hi BooHoo. I wish I had more information for you but this wasn’t my story nor was I assigned the task of speaking with the source of the information. I was merely commenting on the legal implications of the Court Order signed Nov. 10, 2014 and how criminal forfeiture works.

        Thanks Stacy, I appreciate you getting back to me.

    I just popped in to say Happy New Year countdown as I was watching Shawshank Redemption where Freeman does a voice over of the first night in Prison being the worst and how reality hits you when those cells shut that first night & you realize you have nothing but time to think about lots of things. Suddenly, my mind went to Tre.
