NENE’S BIG WHOOPS
So that’s how they afford their luxe lifestyles! These Bravo stars owe Uncle Sam
This major mistake has Nene Leakes in hot water.
She once dropped $20K in cash in an on-camera shopping spree, then did a prison stint (her husband is still serving time) for financial fraud. But RHONJ’S Teresa Giudice, 44, still hasn’t gotten her money issues in order. Two months after a $243,425.50 federal tax lien was filed against her in April, she got slapped with another one for an additional $219,804.38.
The Brownstone in Paterson, N.J., is the site of many RHONJ- related debacles, er dinner parties — and also the subject of many liens against its owners, former Housewife Caroline Manzo, 54, and hubby Al. He now owes $208,012.77 in 2015 state taxes for the banquet hall. Perhaps all the ladies should meet there on April 15 for cocktails and a tax seminar? “Running … to pay this bill. Ya’ll know I ain’t got no jobsssssss,” RHOA’S Nene Leakes, 48, captioned a jokey Instagram pic (hashtags included #oversight) the day after it was reported that she’d been hit with an eye-popping $824,366.01 tax lien in July for Georgia back taxes owed for 2014 (left). In Touch has also obtained a tax lien stating she owes $86,624.69 for 2014 California back taxes. If Nene, whose real name is Linnethia M. Leakes, doesn’t cough up the cash, the IRS says it will begin the process of seizing her assets. Don’t worry, Nene, they can’t take back your new nose!
No wonder she rejoined RHONJ! Jacqueline Laurita, 46, will need the paycheck for her $338,337.05 state tax bill. But she recently lashed out at frenemy Teresa for comparing their financial woes, noting that at least she “didn’t file a personal fraudulent bankruptcy.”
