As a jaded reality TV addict, I'm never really shocked to discover that yet another one of the so-called high-falutin' Real Housewives cast member has a sordid past that includes all sorts of failed financial schemes, flings, shady business dealings, and even an arrest or two. By now, I've actually come to expect it... which is actually rather sad, when you think about it. But, then again, how can I not anticipate a less-than-squeaky background when current cast members are constantly getting busted for allegedly committing one crime after the other? For example, there's RHONJ's Teresa Giudice, who's currently serving time in federal prison and RHOBH's Kim Richards, who was arrested for allegedly shoplifting in a Target store.
Perhaps the fact that those particular Housewives have highly-publicized legal troubles explains why I simply shrug and shake my head when I hear about another Bravo-lebrity gone rogue. I mean, they’re in good (or bad) company. Who hasn’t heard all about RHONJ’s Danielle Staub and her allegedly gritty past? Hey, the public actually watched RHOA’s Porsha Williams go from basically being a Stepford wife to collecting a mugshot (a gorgeous one, but still) after she viciously attacked Kenya Moore during a Housewives reunion.
Unfortunately, the laundry list of crimes doesn’t stop there. Here are seven
more Housewives you didn’t know had
RHOM's Marysol Patton
The crazy thing about this case is that Marysol went to jail for an alleged DUI several months before her mother, Elsa, was arrested and charged with the same alleged crime.
