A former staff writer at People and Us Weekly, I have covered everything from hero pets to hurricanes to the secrets of celebrity slim-downs (which is basically avoiding carbs and anything else that you might actually enjoy eating). My work has also appeared in Essence and Self Magazine. Now an editor at The Stir, I spend my downtime hanging out with my hubby, toddler, and Shih Tzu in New York City. My other favorite pastime -- reality TV. I swear I've learned everything I need to know to survive this life from Snooki, Kim K, and NeNe Leakes.

The party may be over for a Jersey Shore alum. One of the notorious reality TV show stars is being indicted for tax fraud. They allegedly failed to pay all the taxes owed on $8.9 million in income. Charged with conspiracy to defraud the United States, it could mean three years in prison and fines of $250,000 for falsifying tax returns. So which Gym-Tan-Laundry fanatic is headed to the slammer?
