Simon Barney Arrested For Domestic Abuse


It’s been a banner day for arrests: first Braylon Edwards, then Joe Giudice. Now we can add Simon Barney to the list. The controlling husband from The Real Housewives of Orange County allegedly threw a dog leash at ex-wife Tamra Barney that struck her in the wrist. Reportedly, Tamra called the police, and voila, here we are. Now Simon is being held on $10,000 bail.

I suppose we always knew it would come to this.

Teresa Giudice’s Husband Is In Jail

When it comes to bashing Danielle Staub’s sordid past, Teresa Giudice is the champion. Unfortunately for her, women in glass houses shouldn’t throw oversized vases. Turns out Teresa’s husband Joe has been racking up quite the list of illegal transgressions. First there was the alleged drunk driving. Then there were the allegations of fraud. And now Joe Giudice has been arrested for driving with a suspended license.

Unlike his DUI which he claimed was the result of fatigue and post-collision alcohol consumption, I’m not sure Joe can talk his way out of this one. Still, I suspect we’ll be seeing a scene from next season’s Real Housewives of New Jersey where he explains to a wide-eyed Jacqueline that “It was all a big mixup. I didn’t mean to drive the car, but I suffer from sleepwalking and so happens I fell asleep and got into the car and drove off to buy Tre something from Chanels.”

This of course would be echoed by Teresa, who would say “They got it all wrawng. The press people, they don’t know what they’re saying. Joe was walking in his sleep. He wanted to buy me a gift. He loves me. He would never, ever break the law.”

Nevertheless, Joe is currently serving time at the Morris County jail for the next ten days.
