This is a bit disturbing. Remy Gonzalez, star of Cake Boss and husband to Buddy Valastroâ€™s sister, Lisa Valastro, has been arrested on sexual assault charges.
He has been held at Morris County Jail since August 18th and is facing several charges including, aggravated sexual assault, sexual assault, criminal sexual contact, and endangering the welfare of a child. Yikes. The identity of the alleged victim has not been revealed, most likely because she is a minor.
TLC is standing behind Remy saying,
â€śWe support Buddy and the Valastro family during this very difficult and challenging time. The network respects the familyâ€™s wish for as much privacy as possible, and as this doesnâ€™t involve us, we will not be commenting any further.â€ť
This is not a show I follow regularly, but I do check it out on occasion. You just donâ€™t think about stuff like that, so when this made the news I was completely disturbed.
Buddy Valastro, owner of Carlo’s Bake Shop, is the boss of his mother, four sisters and three brothers-in-law including Gonzalez who is married to Valastro’s youngest sister Lisa.
Carlo’s Bake Shop is now a tourist attraction, and often has long lines out the door as you can see in the above picture. Cake Boss is quite a successful show with approximately 2.3 million viewers. It has been so successful that there is going to be a spin off – a competition series where the winner will win an apprenticeship at Carlo’s Bakery. I wonder if this will affect business in a bad way…
We will update with more details as they emerge. Remy is being held on $300,000 bail.
