Journey Guitarist

Sues Ex-Mother-in-Law --

Stop Trashing Me Online!

EXCLUSIVE

Most people get to forget their in-laws after divorce ... but not Journey guitarist Neal Schon -- he's suing his ex-mom-in-law for defamation, claiming the woman is continuing to ruin his life ... by badmouthing him on the Internet.

Neal filed the defamation suit against Judy Kozan, the mother of Amber Schon -- whom Neal divorced in 2007 -- claiming Judy has "attacked and harassed" him through Internet postings and false comments to the media for years.

According to the lawsuit, Judy published a blog article in January, accusing Schon of not paying her daughter enough money to support herself -- letting their two little girls "go homeless," putting his ex "in a situation where she literally has no money for food, gas for the car, bills, nothing."

Schon says he's paid his ex amply ... more than $1.3 million to be exact ... and her mom's lies have tarnished his reputation, resulting in multiple media outlets accusing him of being a "deadbeat" dad.

He's suing for at least $75,000. 

FYI -- Judy has since removed the offending blog post ... and replaced it with a post that sounds a lot like a retraction, in which she says the "deadbeat dad" reports are FALSE. Too little, too late?

itsasecret is Howard. I had suspicions about him, mostly because HNC NEVER uses "your" and "you're" correctly. Also,Howard was stinking drunk the other day, and then came in itsasecret right around the time HNC was posting about drinking, and I think you can see, IAS was either drunk or on something. I guessed it was the latter.
Neal is/was paying HNC to be his secondary PR rep, problem is HNC is useless in this capacity. Seriously, the work he does for NS and MS is exactly the same kind of work an intern at an established PR firm would be doing. HNC is basically a charity case.
But the great part about HNC is his aptitude to fail at everything he does. He talks about how huge his "company" is, and he then latches onto an idea for SOMETHING BIG, like a TV show pitch or now being some bigwig at the Grammys. He always has something brewing, and he never ever ever ever succeeds at any project he's been attached to. After he fails at his project he simply stops talking about it because he's onto something new.
What's even funnier about Howard is that he's been sued by his landlord a half dozen times in the past year because he doesn't pay his rent on time. Then he has the audacity to come on this page and tell people to "get a job". HAHAHAHAHA!!! The only thing funnier than that would be Howard attempting to give you tips on how to pick up women.
If you look up "loser" in on-line dictionary they'd refer you to HNC's FB page for his fictional company.

Here's what you should hope for.
.
You should hope that everyone in this mess finds their way to happiness and fulfillment. I hope that even for you, lost cause that you appear to be this evening.
.
You should hope that Neal and his in-laws mend their fences. You should hope that Neal and Michaele make it as a couple, despite the long odds they face. You should hope that Neal's daughters grow up to love their father like his other kids do and that they become wonderful young women.
.
These are things worth hoping for.

.
.
My feelings on that still hold. I have no antipathy for anyone here. Not M, not HNC, not Danno, not DD and certainly not Neal Schon.
.
I hate the behavior. Stop the lies and the manipulative bullying and all the rest of this hateful soap opera.
.
Work your issues out in private. Learn to be happy with what you have and love the ones you're with.
.
If you continue to create elaborate puzzles of manipulation for clever monkeys like me to solve, we will attempt to solve them. Stop feeding us and our interest fades.
.
I have decided not to sue.
.
I hope this will be my last post here. Best wishes to all, and I mean from the bottom of my heart.

Marq > BRAVO and Andy Cohen pretty much black balled her, he won't even answer her emails since RHoDC went off the air. So Michaele WON'T be replacing Adrienne Maloof on RHBH?

Hey Marq, what has Bravo said about needing to stop taping because of Michelles MS flair ups? Ever happen? You would think with all that drama and stress she would have had many !

Another HNC story: About 2 years ago, T and M Salahi were trying to throw a charity party at his mom's vineyard, which at the time was being foreclosed. The place was pretty much ramshackled at the time and the vines of the vineyard had been dead for a while. On top of that, they really were not allowed to throw a party of that size at the vineyard, as their neighbors had complained a lot about other parties that took place at Oasis. Anyway, it was a charity for some MS organization that didn't really exist and they hired HNC to be the PR person and help run the operations of the party. So what does HNC do? He tells everybody on the literature promoting the party that MONTEL WILLIAMS was going to go to the party. Montel, who also has MS, was going to come down to Oasis and party with everybody to promote the fictional charity that the party was raising money for.
Of course, somebody tipped off Montel's management and they shut that **** down in about a day, because not only had Montel NOT been invited, he didn't want to be involved with shady characters such as T+M as well as Howard.
This made it all the way to the tabloids, and the Salahi's then blamed HNC for the whole debacle to the press.

This was pretty much the MO of HNC and the Salahis at the time, they did the same exact thing at the RHoDC "premiere" party that ended up taking in some money, but the venue was never paid and the charity was never given a dime of money either. Oh, and the guests of honor? Little Ms. MS herself.
