It’s a double whammer in the slammer for ‘Housewives’ husband-ry this week.
Simon Barney was arrested by the Orange County Sheriff’s Department at 12:30 a.m. this morning and taken into custody on suspicion of domestic battery. He is currently being held on $10,000 bail.
The altercation erupted over … their dog. The divorcing couple was reportedly arguing over the pooch when Simon “allegedly threw the dog’s leash at Tamra and hit her wrist.”
Meanwhile, Radar reports that ‘Jersey’s Joe Giudice is getting a 10-day vacation from his ‘Housewife’ — while he goes to jail.
What was Mr. Giudice’s crime? Driving with a suspended license.
“He doesn’t care if he goes to jail because he said then he gets paid because the magazines will want his story,” an insider tells Radar. “He said he’ll be on vacation and getting paid at the same time.”
That’s an interesting way for the bankrupt reality stars to refill their bank account, no?
The ‘O.C.’ cast member is being sued by ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou for libel, slander and five other counts.
The unwelcome party favor was waiting for Rossi when she arrived at the home of new ‘O.C.’ cast member Peggy Tanous for a dinner party. According to a witness, “She turned away and acted as if she was going to try to avoid being served. But there were two people there to serve her and she had no choice. She finally just accepted service.”
Rossi has previously denied being romantically involved with Photoglou, according to Radar, but a legal war between the two has been raging for more than a year. “They’ve spent a fortune suing each other,” a source told Radar. “But the money doesn’t seem to matter. They each want to stomp the other one.”
