Real Housewives of Orange County rookie, Peggy Salahian, was blasted with criticism after her brother, Pol’ Atteu, and his partner, Patrik Simpson, were shut out of a family funeral.
As readers know, Peggy is being slammed as a shameless homophobe after the couple was turned away from Peggy and Pol’s father’s service. While Peggy denies the unproven claim, Pol’ and Patrik are clearly enjoying their time in the spotlight — their happy place, according to their colorful history.
A quick look back reveals that Pol’ and Patrik aka “the PP Boyz’” adoration for the limelight is well documented.
The couple were friends with Anna Nicole Smith, and capitalized on her tragic fame, before and after her death. The PP Boyz were dubbed “Anna Nicole insiders,” by the press, and the guys were always happy to share.
The duo appeared on CMT’s Big Redneck Vacation.
They also appeared on an episode of Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis — entitled, “The House on Haunted Hill.” Jeff likened the house to “an abandoned crack house” due to the filthy, rundown condition of the space. Jeff told assistant, Jenny Pulos, that they were looking at ten years of serious household neglect — labeling the couple loony, after listening to them describe their lifestyle.
The duo loves striking a pose every chance they get — their Instagram accounts jammed with pop-and-flash moments.
As reported, Pol’ and Patrik are currently in legal hot water — as owners of Network International Models & Talent. The pair is accused of unlawfully charging the parents of an underage child for photos and fees. That hasn’t slowed their roll to publicly rant against Pol’s allegedly “homophobic” sister — the newest breakout Bravo star. The couple were charged with seven criminal counts:
- Violating the Krekorian Act
- Operating without a “Child Performer Service Permit”
- Falsely representing that the business was a licensed talent agency
- Petty theft
- Attempted grand theft
- Criminal conspiracy
If convicted, Pol’ and Patrik could face up to four years in jail and $33,500 in fines.
Below take a look at a reality TV show concept the duo are peddling.
