Settlement Reached, Charges Dropped, On to the next Lawsuit, by NMD
The court case between Chis Laurita, Jacqueline Laurita, Joey Gorga and Johnny the Greek was dropped yesterday as they informed the judge a settlement had been reached. The news was expected, and they all had a lot more to lost than gain if it moved forward -since there were charges leveled at both sides. Amazingly, Johnny is still trash talking Jacqueline about the tweets. Is it ALL for the attention and rating? The finale is this weekend.
Case was dismissed4a reason!Disgusting that He lied about me hitting him w/a shoe!It never happened!I didnt do that!Raw footage proves that!
People emailed me about Johnny’s tweets, I looked at his timeline & saw them.People I know collected them.He deletes!He lies!NO shoe attack!
Not wasting my time anymore on insignificant nonsense. I am focusing now on more important things. Just wanted truth to be known.That is all
(My Guess is that won’t be all.)
Wow, I love her tweets. She really has no grasp of court system. Maybe her lawyer should explain it to her when she’s sober #ItsNotOverMoron
How about all that redacted Penny blog nonsense. Does anyone really believe bravo redacted that blog?? If they did, why is the interview with Jan on AllAboutTRH still up. Jan talks candidly about the editing. Read the full interview here.
How did she approach you to film with her and her other friend Maria?
Out of nowhere, she calls me to go meet her for lunch. Again. She wanted to know if I told anybody about the night we were out at Sushi Lounge with Bryan. I said no, but of course there were other people there. And Bryan is friends with Penny!
So she asked me if I would come on and film with her to say that there was no meeting together. I didn’t really want to get involved, but she asked me to film because she needed girlfriends to go to lunch with her. Melissa doesn’t have a lot of girlfriends. If you look at her wedding party, I’m the only friend at her wedding. It was all family. Her two sisters, her cousin, Teresa, me, I think Kathy might have been there too.
She was like “Please, please, please,” so I said alright. Now mind you, I denied a majority of the stuff because I just didn’t want to get involved in this. So we go out to lunch and after that, Kim D and Penny start calling me and my partner. At first, they tried telling me that Teresa had a hair product line and she wanted it in my salon.
Kim D has this guy Damien who was friends with my old partner, set up a meeting behind my back with Penny and they wanted to see if we could get me to come on the show. I said I didn’t want to get involved, but then they said it would only be about the hair products and Melissa wouldn’t be there. Kim D gave me the whole run around.
My partner then begged me and said it’ll be good for the business. At the time, I was still mad at Melissa because she had used me to get information about Bryan and to deny all that stuff. So when we get there, they push Malcolm, who is my partner, to the side and they place me next to Penny to make it seem like we came here together.
The night at Bellissimo’s [with Teresa, Kim D, and Penny] I was defending her. They were attacking her and ambushing her. And once again, I’m sticking up for her and Bravo switched it up because apparently Penny has a lawsuit with Bravo, so they didn’t use her in that scene bashing Melissa. I don’t know, maybe they wanted to make it look realistic. I have no idea. The whole thing was just fake.
They just started bashing Melissa. At the table, when they showed me saying all this stuff. It had nothing to do with Melissa. We were talking about an old boyfriend. It was just stuff that had nothing to do with Melissa. They re-arranged the entire conversation which was really messed up.
So then someone behind the cameras asks me to tell them about how Melissa cheated on Bryan, and I said no. I knew we went to dinner together, but I didn’t leave with them so I don’t know what happened.”
I don’t you, but I am absolutely tired of Penny and Johnny and all their theatrics. Done!
The Big Bang Theory
“The Hofstadter Insufficiency”
The scene opens with Leonard at sea on the deck of a ship with torrents of rain pouring down on him. He answers a call from Sheldon on his cell phone. Sheets of rain and angry waves are really pounding on Leonard and he tries to tactfully tell Sheldon that it’s not such a great time for them to talk but asks him what he wants. Sheldon snippily responds, “Well, hello to you, too!” Sheldon insists that he’s sorry and wouldn’t have called unless it was important. He goes on to explain the reason for this very crucial call is that he discovered their DVD of “Back to the Future 2” was mistakenly put in the “Back to the Future 3” case… and that “Back to the Future 3” was in the “Back to the Future 2” case. Leonard exasperatingly says, “So?” Sheldon says, “So… Did you do that or am in a house with an intruder?” as he nervously looks around. Leonard tells Sheldon that he has to go because it’s getting rough out there on the deck of the ship. Sheldon thinks Leonard is just dodging the question, but then says he hears some loud noise on Leonard’s end of the phone – and that it sounded like someone might have just released a Kraken. You then see a sea serpent’s tentacles wrap around Leonard and then effortlessly toss him overboard into the ocean. Sheldon screams himself awake from the bad dream he just had.
Sheldon goes over to Penny’s house and excitedly knocks on her door in his customary triad of knocks. Knock, knock, knock… “Penny”…. Knock, knock, knock… “Penny”…. Knock, knock, knock… “Penny!” A very sleepy Penny answered the door and asks Sheldon, “What’s the matter?” Sheldon tells her he was “concerned” that she might have been having bad dreams – Say, like for instance, if she had watched “The Clash of the Titans” right before going to bed. Sheldon suggests he sleeps at Penny’s so “she doesn’t miss Leonard too much” because Penny is, “being a baby about it.” Penny concedes that it would make her feel better. As she opens the door wide for Sheldon to walk through, he walks in and then walks right into Penny’s bedroom, says, “Goodnight” and closes the door.
(Insert theme song here… btw… You don’t have to actually sing the whole song if you don’t want to… but you must chime in with the song on the line, “We built the pyramids” … And then you have to end the song by saying “BANG” really loud… No really, you have to… it’s the law…)
The next scene is of the guys at work the next day eating lunch in the cafeteria. As they carry their trays to sit down at a table, Raj says, “I think you’d be pleased to hear that this morning in the parking garage, I saw this oil stain on the ground that was shaped just like my ex-girlfriend Lucy…. And I didn’t get upset at all.” Howard tells him he is proud of him. Raj says, “You should be… Cuz she was looking goooooood!” Sheldon says, “Dear lord, you’re an astronomer… Although you may have earthly woes, get your mind back on the stars. Even the lowly dung beetle chooses to plot its course by using the Milky Way.” Raj says, “Is that true?” Sheldon responds, “Everything I say is true.” Sheldon continues (while Howard is trying to eat his lunch), “Now of course the dung beetle enjoys eating feces, living in feces, and making little balls out of feces, so… Pick and choose which aspects of his lifestyle you want to embrace.”
Now that Raj can talk to girls without having to drink alcohol, Howard thinks it should be easier for Raj to meet other girls. Raj insists that it’s hard because everywhere he looks he sees Lucy’s face. He points to his food and tells them he sees her smile in the crust of his chicken pot pie. Being the ever so helpful friend that he is, Howard brutally stabs the crust with his fork, smashing it to smithereens. Howard offers to go to a welcome party that evening with Raj so he can meet some women. Raj was blown away he would do that for him. Howard tells him he is his friend and that he wants him to be happy. Raj asks Sheldon if he would also like to go since his girlfriend, Amy, is also out of town at a conference with Bernadette (Howard’s wife). Sheldon says, “I want you to be happy, too… But not enough to do anything about it.”
The next scene shows that Bernadette and Amy are sharing a hotel room at the conference. They’re obviously on the phone with their respective “significant others.” Bernadette cautions Howard that he needs to stop talking “like that” cuz Amy is very close by. Amy is obviously talking to Sheldon, promising him that she won’t bring home bedbugs. Bernadette sweetly promises to meet Howard in dreamland… while Amy tells Sheldon, “No, I will not consider sleeping in my garment bag.”
Sheldon is playing 3-D chess while Penny is lazily flipping through a magazine. Penny is convinced Sheldon is missing Leonard… but Sheldon assures her he’s not. He then tells Penny several specific ways that he doesn’t miss Leonard that range from the way Leonard draws a face out of syrup on his toaster waffle to how he fixes his jacket zipper when it gets stuck. While not convinced, Penny finally concedes, “Okay I get it, I get it – You’re an emotionless robot.” Sheldon matter-of-factly says, “I try.” Sheldon then asks Penny, “How are you with zippers?” Penny responds, “Why?” Sheldon says, “Cuz I really need to go to the bathroom, and this one has gone all cattywampus.” Penny just looks at him.
Raj and Howard are at the mixer that night… Raj is talking to a girl. They’re both socially awkward but they promise they will download each other’s research papers from the university server. As she awkwardly leaves, Raj does his best impression of a Rico Suave kind of guy (maybe it was a used car salesman) and victoriously makes a hand gesture like he just shot a pistol while making a clicking sound with his mouth.
Raj walks over to Howard who asks him how it went. Raj tells him, “If you like dry, factual statements interspersed with painful moments of silence… it was bananas.” Howard and Raj are talking together when they see that Mrs. Davis from Human Resources is there. Howard fills in Raj that her husband recently left her for a young, hot undergrad. Minutes later, when Mrs. Davis joins Raj and Howard, Raj awkwardly says, “I recently read a fascinating article on infidelity among penguins.” Mrs. Davis is dumbfounded and slowly responds, “Okay…” Raj cheerfully continues, “So, if the fact that your husband left you makes you feel unattractive, just remember penguins get cheated on – and they’re adorable!” She is positively speechless and just walks away without saying a word. Raj does another pistol point and another click… Howard deduces that Raj was better off when Raj couldn’t talk to women at all without the help of alcohol.
Bernadette and Amy are at a bar in the hotel perusing their conference program guide to determine what lecture they want to attend. Bernadette decides she might want to go to the lecture on, “posterior cingulate cortex brain lesions in the formation of autobiographical memory.” Amy says, “Brain lesions are fascinating… Unless they’re yours – then they’re a drag.” They clink their drinks together, and Bernadette toasts, “To the advancement of science.” Amy adds, “And to the sick and dying who make it possible.” Two guys buy them drinks from across the room….and Amy gets very demonstratively excited about it since the guys are hitting on them even though they don’t have their usual male-bait, the beautiful Penny around to attract their attention.
Penny and Sheldon are playing 3-D Chess back at Sheldon’s apartment. Penny is trying desperately to lose because she just wants the game to end. She says she misses Leonard and Sheldon suggests that she call him. Sheldon would not consider calling, of course, because as Sheldon says, “The absence of friends does not cause me pain. As the rock and roll bad boy Paul Simon once said, ‘I am a rock, I am an iiiiiiisland.’” Penny decides to call Leonard and Sheldon shouts, “Oh, goodie… put him on speakerphone!”
You then see Leonard answering his cell phone during the middle of a huge party where everyone is dancing and having way too much fun for words. When the phone rings, Leonard says, “Excuse me ladies, but my pants are buzzing.” Leonard answers the phone, “North Sea, how can I “kelp” you?” Penny tells Leonard that it sounds like he’s having a good time. Leonard corrects her and says he’s having, “The best time of my life.” Sheldon is scowling in the background and Penny looks dejected. Sheldon asks, “Isn’t it 5:30 in the morning there?” Then you hear someone on Leonard’s end of the phone yell, “Iceberg” and the whole crowd cheers “berg!” They’re playing a drinking game – Whenever someone sees an iceberg they all drink a shot. The phone mysteriously disconnects. Penny is cranky and says, “I cannot believe that we were missing that jerk.” Sheldon corrects her, “You were.”
Bernadette is returning to their table and Amy wants to know how it went? Bernadette tells her it went well – That she thanked them and told the guys that they’re not available. Amy responds with, “So, I can drink this without having to give up the goodies?” Bernadette confirms that she could, but then adds, “Although if you wanted to talk to one of them, no one would blame you.” Amy doesn’t understand why Bernadette said that and she presses her to explain. Amy says, “It sounds like you’re saying I could do better than Sheldon.” Bernadette deflects by starting to talk about how strong the alcohol is in their drinks. Bernadette then offers the explanation, “I just meant that you’re not married, and your boyfriend’s kind of “Sheldon.” Lol… she totally used “Sheldon” as an adjective. Amy quickly retorts, “And your husband is extremely “Howard” – What’s your point?” Bernadette concedes that she has no point… and apologizes and just wants to go back to having a nice time. Amy says, “We could, but unfortunately my brain is lesion free and I remember that rotten thing you just said about my sweet baboo.” Bernadette said she apologized and wants to move on. Amy agrees, but then says under her breath, “Your husband is weird and his clothes are ridiculous.”
Penny is lamenting that they both have been sitting around and missing Leonard. Penny says, “And do you know what the worst part is?” Sheldon says, “That you’re having to process your emotional pain without vodka?” Penny says, “No… Yeah… But you know what the 2nd worst part is? He does not miss me at all.” Sheldon supportively says, “Well, at least you’ve got your health.” Penny tells Sheldon she doesn’t think that was very comforting… Sheldon tries again, “In a hundred years… You’ll both be dead and it won’t matter.” Penny chides Sheldon for not saying something more sympathetically like “Of course, he misses you! The only reason he’s partying is to cover up his pain.” Sheldon says, “Oh no, I don’t think that’s true at all.” Penny wonders why she feels so upset that Leonard is off having a good time. Sheldon helpfully supplies, “Well, perhaps you’re obsessively picturing him engaged in drunken coitus with another woman.” Penny gives Sheldon the evil eye. Sheldon honestly asks, “Is that it? Did I get it right?” Penny just wants Sheldon to stop trying to make her feel better. Sheldon tells her that he can’t stop trying. Evidently, before Leonard left on his trip, he made Sheldon promise that he’d take care of Penny while he’s gone. Sheldon adds, “Plus, if I do a good job, he promised he’d bring me back a sailor’s cap.” Penny’s immediately forgets she was ever mad at Leonard because her heart just completely melted into a pool of warm fuzzy feelings. Sheldon offers Penny some consolation that he’s sure that Leonard is tormented every moment he’s away from Penny’s warm embrace… oh, and her cherry lips. Penny says, “Thanks.” Sheldon can’t believe she’d believe that and sarcastically says, “Oh, seriously?”
Because his mother taught him that if someone was sad, he must always make them a hot beverage, Sheldon dutifully makes Penny a hot beverage to comfort her. He points out, “It’s in a “To Go” cup, make of that what you will.” Since the night is still young, Penny wants to do something. Sheldon wants to play 4-D Chess but Penny just wants to talk and not about 4-D Chess. Penny wants Sheldon to tell her something that people don’t know about him. Sheldon thoughtfully responds that he owns 9 pairs of pants. Alas, Penny wants it to be something more personal in nature. Sheldon thinks, and then says, “I own 9 pairs of underpants.” Seeing that Sheldon obviously doesn’t understand what she means, Penny decides to go first. Sheldon tells her that he unequivocally doesn’t want to know many pairs of underpants she owns – but that based on the floor in her bedroom, he’d guess about 1,000.
Unfazed, Penny tells him that when she first came to LA, she did a topless scene in a low budget horror movie about a killer gorilla. After she did it she felt so ashamed but is thankful that the movie never came out. Sheldon said, “I’ve seen that! ‘Serial Apest!’” Penny is completely aghast! He tells her that Howard found it online the day they all met Penny. Sheldon now understand the kind of personal revelation that Penny is looking for… and he’s come up with one. He explains how YouTube changed its user interface from a star-based rating system to a thumbs-up rating system. Sheldon confides that he’s told people that he was okay with it – but he’s really not. He was going to take that information to his grave. Penny shockingly says, “That’s your big revelation?” Sheldon says, “Yes… Whew… I feel 10 pounds lighter.” Seeing that there was no point for their discussion to go any further, Penny gets up to leave. Sheldon tells her that she just hurt his feelings because he just opened up to her and shared something deeply upsetting to him and she treated his words like they didn’t mean anything. Penny said that she didn’t think it was a big deal but it was to Sheldon. Penny says, “You’re right, I’m really sorry, Sheldon.” Sheldon accepts her apology. Penny offers to hug Sheldon but he would prefer a hearty handshake. Sheldon says after Penny hugged him, “Now, I know how you felt, getting mauled by that sex crazed gorilla.”
Meanwhile, Bernadette and Amy, who are very silent and still very cranky at each other, are going to bed in their shared hotel room in separate beds. After lying down for a moment, Amy talks about how flattering it was for strangers to send them drinks. Bernadette agrees. Amy suggests, “Tomorrow morning, maybe we put on some hot pants and see if we can score some free omelets.”
Excitedly, Bernadette asks, “Hypothetically, if we were to go with them, which one would you have picked?” Amy responds, “The short one with a goofy haircut.” Bernadette says that she would have gone for the tall, thin one – because he seemed intelligent and kind of a loner. Bernadette adds, “Maybe a little sexually inexperienced – Like I would have to teach him a thing or two” and then she growls like a tiger. Amy says that she caught the guy, “staring stare at my rack.” Amy continues, “It would be nice to be with a man who wants to know what’s underneath my cardigan… FYI.. It’s another cardigan.” Bernadette tells Amy that her, “Your short, sexed-up guy kind of sounds like Howard. ” Amy equally observes, “Your brainy, virgin kind of sounds like Sheldon.” They immediately turn off the light and stop talking because once again, they’re mad at each other.
Raj and Mrs. Davis are talking and Raj apologizes to Mrs. Davis for what he said and for being insensitive. He also apologizes for making penguins seem like jerks because 99% of them are stand up guys. Raj confides to her that he had come there that evening to meet a lonely, post doc… But instead, he got to connect with her on a human level. He tells Mrs. Davis that it made it a much better evening because she’s a lovely person. Mrs. Davis wonders if Raj is hitting on her… “No, no!” exclaims Raj. “That would be crazy… If I were hitting on you, you’d know it because you’d feel uncomfortable and a little sad for me.” Mrs. Davis says her goodbyes and then exits.
Howard walks in and says, “It looks like she accepted your apology.” Raj says, “And then some… I think we had a moment.” Howard says, “Puhleeze, you did not have a moment.” Raj responds, “Who died and made you ‘King of Moments?’” Howard asks Raj what he would do if they actually did have “a moment.” Raj describes this whole scenario wherein he would slowly seduce her into falling in love with him… but then agrees with Howard that he probably would actually do absolutely nothing.
Last scene: Penny is showering. She says, “Ahhh… I’m so glad that the police finally caught that psychotic, genetically engineered ape.” Then you hear some loud noise coming from outside the shower and then you see the outline of a gorilla on the other side of her shower curtain…. The scene then cuts to Leonard who is still at his party. He is sitting at a laptop with his fellow partygoers huddling all around him watching the film being shown on his computer screen. He tells them, “That is my girlfriend.. I swear to God!” They all start chanting as if he’s a hero, “Leonard… Leonard… Leonard.” You hear Penny screaming in the background as the movie continues to play. Fade to black.
