Game of Thrones: Is This Jon Snow’s Real Name?

What’s in a name?

Well, when it comes to Jon Snow (Kit Harington), a lot.

After Game of Thrones‘ sixth season finally confirmed one popular fan theory about Jon Snow’s parentage — that he’s actually the son of Rhaegar Targaryen and Lyanna Stark — fans immediately starting buzzing about a new theory about Jon’s background.

In her final moments with her brother Ned (Sean Bean), Lyanna whispered something in his ear that was inaudible to viewers, but which some lip-readers have claimed can be interpreted as his true name.

According to some, the name Lyanna shares with Ned is Jaehaerys, which would have been chosen to honor Rhaegar’s esteemed Targaryen ancestor of the same name, if true. This theory began to gain major traction again earlier this week after an excerpt from Empire Magazine appeared to confirm Jon’s real name is Jaehaerys Targaryen.

However, this apparent confirmation is nothing more than a mummer’s face. Since the excerpt was shared on Reddit, Empire contributor Dan Jolin clarified that Jon’s name is in no way confirmed and this report was simply based on the lip-reading of dedicated fan Claire Williams, who is credited as first popularizing the Jaehaerys theory last year.

As Game of Thrones‘ seventh season approaches, the resurgence of this moniker matter is a stark (ha!) reminder that this is one loose thread that still has yet to be sewn up by the series. With only 13 episodes left in the series, the reveal of Jon Snow’s name will likely play a major part in his arc during the remaining, abbreviated seasons.

With Ned, Lyanna and Rhaegar all dead, there likely aren’t many people alive who know Jon’s real name. But luckily for us all, Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) got the chance to observe the pivotal conversation between his father and aunt thanks to his Three-Eyed Raven time-traipsing ability, so there’s a good chance he’ll be the one to share the news with Jon when (and if) they are reunited.

And if Jon Snow is named Jaehaerys, this lends credence to the theory that he will help fulfill the “dragon has three heads” prophecy. Jaehaerys was the most beloved Targaryen leader who, in addition to quelling the divide between the monarchy and Faith Militant, was a dragonrider. If Jon were named after Jaehaerys, it would be even more evidence that he will be one of the dragonriders alongside his aunt Daenerys (Emilia Clarke).

Game of Thrones returns to HBO for its seventh season on July 16, 2017.

Exclusive: Are Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge Leaving RHOC?

 

There have been numerous reports that RHOC stars Tamra Judge and Vicki Gunvalson will not return to the show for season thirteen. But a network insider is telling us that these reports are totally bogus.

“Many people were very confused what would happen after Vicki threatened to quit at the reunion,” our source exclusively shares. “She’s not going anywhere.” Our insider calls the rumors “stupid” and points out, “every year this happens.”

“The network is ecstatic that the women have finally reconciled,” our show source continues. “This will help the show’s ratings. Everyone at Bravo is fully aware how much this season was lacking.”

“Tamra isn’t leaving either,” our insider said. “She plans to show the renovation of her new house and Jeff Lewis is hoping to lead the project.”

“They start filming next month,” our source adds.

We reached out to Tamra and she tells us, laughing, “Ya I’m coming back. Unless they fire me 😂” She said the same goes for Vicki.

Our other insider says the likelihood of these two being fired is probably “unlikely” and that the network is aware of what big cast changes do and they aren’t willing to risk what happened with RHONY.

And as we previously reported, the reconciliation was REAL. I questioned whether or not it was real, but I have been assured that it was “unexpected” but “authentic.” In my opinion, this could lead up to a really great season now that Shannon and Tamra are getting along with Vicki. They are definitely funny together.

AllAboutTheTea also exclusively reported Vicki and Tamra will not be leaving the show.

Kenya Moore Owes Almost $7000 in Taxes

Kenya Moore Owes Almost $7000 in Taxes

 

Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore is having some financial troubles, according to a new report. Moore has a lot of tax debt from her infamous home Moore Manor.

According to a tax bill obtained by Fulton County Tax Commissioner, Moore, owes $6,984.85 on her Sandy Springs, Georgia home.

“These are delinquent tax sales,” a spokesperson for the Sheriff’s Office told RadarOnline. “When taxes are not paid by homeowners, the tax commissioner can sell the taxes to a third party. If they don’t make the payment to satisfy the lien, we auction the taxes off.”

In a police report obtained from the Sandy Springs Police Department, Moore’s ex-boyfriend Matt Jordan vandalized her home on August 15, 2016.

“There was obvious damage to the middle (of three) glass garage door,” the report read. “Three of the glass panels had been shattered. A vehicle was parked on the other side of the glass garage door that was damaged. Through one of the broken glass panels, the rear window of the vehicle had been shattered.”

But Kenya may be leaving her issues with her home behind her, as she discussed moving out of Moore Manor to live in a new home with her husband Marc Daly, who she married in June.

AllAboutTheTea was the first to report this story.

Are you surprised that Kenya is in that much tax debt?

Teresa Giudice’s Father Still in Hospital, But He’s Getting Better

 

Teresa Giudice’s father, Giacinto Gorga, is still in the hospital but an insider is revealing that he is getting better, much to Teresa’s relief.

Gorga is still in the hospital, suffering from pneumonia, but is slowly on the mend. “He’s getting better,” a source said of the 74-year old. “Of course, Teresa is relieved.”

As we reported, Teresa had to skip an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and had to leave her father’s bedside to tape the RHONJ reunion last week.

“All of the ladies hugged her and told her she was so brave for coming to work in the middle of her dad’s hospitalization,” a source told RadarOnline of Teresa’s co=stars.

We have gotten to see a lot more of Teresa’s dad since he moved in with her after his wife passed away. He is very charming. We are sending love and prayers to Teresa, Giacinto and their family.
