This is a bit disturbing. Remy Gonzalez, star of Cake Boss and husband to Buddy Valastro’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,

“We support Buddy and the Valastro family during this very difficult and challenging time. The network respects the family’s wish for as much privacy as possible, and as this doesn’t involve us, we will not be commenting any further.”

This is not a show I follow regularly, but I do check it out on occasion. You just don’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.

    It is very disturbing to me as well. I realize these people are putting on a TV persona so we really don’t know them but it is still shocking. You step into this fantasy fun cake world and can’t imagine these guys doing something so perverted & disgusting. Not sure how I will feel next time I watch the show (if I will).

    I wouldn’t pass judgment yet. We have few details and no evidence ourselves. I have seen false rape charges, and seen a 16 or 17 year olds that are legally minors but you wouldn’t have guessed. Maybe he is guilty, and maybe not. I would wait and see what the courts think.

    FIRST of all he married into the family….how dare anyone bash the family as a whole for one sorry piece of garbage. The details have not come out yet. Either way its bad but, who are we to judge off of 1 person. He should be off the show but stop watching all together? i dont watch the show for anyone i watch it because they make nice cakes… And the most judgements are passed by people who have a less than perfect family.

    The article incorrectly states that Buddy is being held on $30,000 bail. I checked out TLC website and Remy’s face has already been stricken from the bios. Interesting.

    The fact that he is still in jail seems very telling. If the family thought he was innocent, they would have bailed him out. He has two stepchildren as well as the new baby with his wife. It’s so sad because he seems like such a sweet guy on the show.

    Wow.. wtf. I hope this isn’t true.. I kind of like the show.

    Wow, I’m in shock. Half the fun of the show is the members of the extended family. I know them all by name and you get to feel that you could walk in and be a member of the family.
    I just can’t believe it, I just recently watched when they made the baby cake to announce Lisa’s pregnancy to the family. I hope it’s false charges, he seems like a really nice guy, and I hate to think of what this is doing to the family.
