Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3 Teresa Giudice

The never ending legal drama for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice continues.

Almost 2 years after filing bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt, Teresa is facing the possibility that her bankruptcy filing could be overturned. Why? She is facing trial for bankruptcy fraud alongside her husband Joe Giudice.

If you recall, we reported last year that the Giudices were scheduled to go on trial July 14th. However the Giudices were able to get that date postponed last month. While New Jersey Judge Morris Stern refused to dismiss the trial, he did postpone it to October 13th… just in time for the filming of the RHONJ season 4.

The Giudices’ trustee John W. Sywilok is accusing them of concealing assets and hiding income on their bankruptcy filing. You can read all about that by clicking here. The goal of the trustee is to get the bankruptcy granted to them dismissed so that they will be responsible for all their debt. In addition to that, Teresa and Joe also have another trial scheduled for January 2012. It appears plaintiffs in that case are trying to get a judge to exclude a mortgage debt related to Joe’s dealings with his former business partner Joe Mastropole, excluded from their bankruptcy.

In other NJ news, Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga spoke about their feud in a new interview. Melissa, 31, reveals she is willing to let bygones be bygones when it comes to her relationship, or lack thereof, with Tre. Melissa also insinuates that Teresa was only willing to make up with her because of the Bravo cameras.

“There’s definitely times where I hear her point,” Melissa told the L.A. Times “But it’s been frustrating for me because I’ve been asking her for years and years and years to fix it, to work it out with me. All of a sudden, within the last year, she was doing all the right things and saying the right things. But better now than never, I guess. I’ve been trying to get her to act this way for years. I guess I was confused: ‘Why now?’ But whatever. We’re family. I’m always willing to forgive.”

So how is their relationship today? “Right now, she’s my sister-in-law,” Melissa said. “We have kids the same age — we try, we try to work it out. And we try to be together for the family. It’s not like we’re best friends, but we’re family. I want my husband to have a relationship with his family.”

It’s official, Real Housewives of New York City star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is now Team Blonde!

LuAnn debuted her lighter hair color yesterday during the premiere party of her latest music video Chic C’est La Vie. Yes the Countess has yet to give up on her singing career. Joining Countess Lulu at her party were her former fellow Brunettes Jill Zarin, Kelly Bensimon and Cindy Barshop.

And in case you’re wondering, that is NOT a wig as she actually dyed her hair blonde with the help of celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson, the same man responsible for Kate Gosselin’s famous hair transition. LuAnn however had a bit of help with some extensions.

“I don’t know how long I will stay a blonde, but everyone should have the chance to live out a fun fantasy! If you want to try something, go for it!,” LuAnn posted on her facebook page. More pictures below of LuAnn and her fellow NYC Housewives at her party!

Meanwhile Jill and Kelly make a cameo in LuAnn’s new music video as Popeater reports Alex McCord and Ramona Singer declined to be a part of it.

The always classy Countess did not miss an opportunity to talk smack about her costars. “It was very disappointing that the other ladies wouldn’t be part of it. The other girls didn’t come, they didn’t think it was appropriate. I didn’t want anyone to feel like they were being excluded so I invited everyone. And let’s face it, I sing about them in the song,” said LuAnn. “They said it was not the right image they wanted to portray and I was like ‘excuse me, not the right image?’ Who goes out without their panties, another rubs her husbands naked chest on the show, please.”

Below is the new music video for Chic C’est La Vie!

Kroy Jagger Biermann

Finally, we get to meet the baby boy of Kim Zolciak!

Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, graces the latest cover of Life & Style magazine with a photo of her newborn Kroy Jagger Biermann who weighed in at eight pounds at birth. The photo comes a month after Kim delivered her baby on May 31st.

“It’s unimaginable — I’m so blessed, so lucky,” gushes Kim, 33, about her first son, whom she affectionately calls K.J. “I’m just so crazy in love with K.J. – I’m always kissing his big old lips.”

And while Bravo cameras were in the hospital with Kim, they were not in the delivery room. “The actual delivery itself was very private, very personal,” Kim reveals. “To be in such a happy place with Kroy there, it was definitely very emotional. It couldn’t have been more perfect.”

Kim, who already has two daughters Brielle, 14, and Arianna, 9, reveals her NFL beau Kroy Beirmann has been very supportive. “Kroy is just very calm,” says Kim. “He gets up with me every time I get up. We’ll change his diaper together, or he’ll give him a bottle if I pump. We’re really a team versus me doing a lot of things myself.’

“I’m 100,000 percent certain that Kroy is the one for me. I definitely would like one more child,” she adds. So can we expect another baby for Kroy and Kim? “I’d like to get married first,’ she says. “But I definitely would like one more child so K.J. has a little playmate. And then I’m done.”

And when it comes to her costar Nene Leakes, Kim reveals she hasn’t heard from her but she is a-okay with that. “But I don’t care,” she says. “I don’t want any negativity around me. ‘I’m in a different place in life now and I couldn’t be happier.”

A week after news broke that ABC is planning to air an interview with Emily Maynard discussing her breakup with Brad Womack, the two are opening up about just that in an all new interview.

The former Bachelor couple grace the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine in which they both discuss what led to the demise of their relationship. And unlike former couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, the two keep things classy.

“We’re no longer engaged,” Emily, 25 tells PEOPLE. “This is my worst nightmare. I thought there was no way Brad and I wouldn’t work out.”

So what led to the breakup? Emily admits it was hard for Brad, 38, to understand her life as a single mom to 6-year-old daughter Ricky (she turned 6 today). “It’s hard to convey what it’s like to be a parent to somebody that has no idea,” Emily explains. “He didn’t understand why I couldn’t go on a random vacation the next day. It’s hard for me to say, ‘I am so tired, I want to go to bed at 8,’ and for him to understand.”

Another issue for the couple was Emily’s reluctance to pack up and move to Austin, TX with Ricky due to the on-again off-again type relationship. “I need stability,” Emily says. “I can’t just say I’ll figure it out when I get there. I didn’t feel it would be a good move to take my daughter away from her life for a guy I don’t know if it’s going to work out a month down the road.”

Brad also spoke to PEOPLE taking full blame for the failure of their relationship. “The demise of our relationship was completely my fault,” Brad says. “I gave Em every reason under the sun to get out much sooner than she did. She hung in there with me much, much longer than she should have.”

So now that she’s a single gal, can we expect to see Emily as the future Bachelorette? According to Emily, that answer is a no. “I’m just like any girl dealing with a heartbreak, the last thing on my mind is to do this all over again,” she says.

You can read more of Emily and Brad’s interview in the latest issue of PEOPLE. Emily’s ABC interview is set to air July 11th during the episode of the Bachelorette. Brad declined to sit for the TV interview.

On the upcoming episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, Jill Zarin borrows the buzzword of her BFF Kelly Bensimon when she accuses Simon van Kempen of cyber-bullying her.

In fact on the last episode, Jill’s husband Bobby Zarin confronted Simon, hubby of Alex McCord, wanting to know if he was “actively involved” with a hate-mongering blog, which Simon denied.

So let’s examine both claims shall we. The blog Bobby is referring to is a blog called the “I Hate Jill Zarin” blog. The blog was created last year to cover Jill during the climax of her unpopularity with fans of the RHONY in light of her feud with Bethenny Frankel. However today, the blog covers a variety of different topics and reality shows.

So what is Simon’s involvement? Well at one point last year, Alex and Simon were doing their book tour during which they made a stop in Chicago, the same city the owner of the IHJZ blog resides in. A meet and greet was organized for Alex and Simon to meet local bloggers and fans which included the writer of the blog in June 2010. The writer blogged about the event and posted pictures on the IHJZ blog. In her Bravo blog this week, Alex states that was the extent of their involvement with the blog. Below is an excerpt –

I don’t know how that translates into Simon or me being investors, content writers, posters, or even members of the blog. We don’t own it, we don’t have money in it. We don’t write for it. There is a link on the blog to a recap of the Chicago fan event held for us with pictures, and as the blog covers the whole Housewives franchise, we along with all other cast membersare regularly discussed on it. That doesn’t mean we are doing the discussing.”

The owner of the IHJZ blog also states Simon is not involved with the blog.

And speaking of Bravo blogs, Jill accused Simon of “mean tweeting” about her and Kelly in her latest blog. It appears this is what she means by “cyber-bullying” on the upcoming episode. So does Simon sometimes “mean tweet” about the NYC housewives? Absolutely. However, Jill appears to take the cake when it comes to “mean tweeting.” In fact, a fan question called her out on it during her recent appearance on Bravo’s WWHL.

Below are just some of tweets made by Jill about her cast mates (mostly Ramona) in recent weeks –

  • “Mixed message? Your a hypocrite!” tweeted Jill about Ramona on June 23rd.
  • “Just watched next weeks episode. It’s like soft porn. Gross!!! Then Luann takes down a housewife. Want to guess who? Such great episode!” tweeted Jill on June 11th.
  • “We r dying laughing watching Ramona fake cry.” tweeted Jill June 9th.
  • “She is just using me to try to get more twitter followers. Desperate move don’t u think? She did that with b too. Sad.” tweeted Jill on June 5th.
  • “I agree its gross.RT @jlrtweets101665 “@Jillzarin I think RHONY has become a 1 hour advertisement for Ramona’s beverage and it is becoming very very annoying.”” tweeted Jill on June 5th.
  • “Actually a producer!RT @KNeddie “@Jillzarin didn’t ramona hit a cameraman during filming?” tweeted Jill June 2nd.
  • “I think so too!RT @AbbieLLear “@Jillzarin what a selfish heartless bitch..Ramona is a prime example of bullying! I would be mortified if I were Avery! Jennifer is GORGEOUS.” tweeted Jill May 20th.
  • “What did I do that hurt Ramona to her face. She publicly attacked me. Big difference, you admit u put your foot in mouth and that’s ok?” tweeted Jill May 19th.

The tweets with RT in front of them were tweeted to Jill by fans, and her response is in front of the RT. May 19th is where we decided to stop with the tweets though we could have went on and on and on. And just 2 weeks ago, Jill Zarin posted a poll question on her official facebook page asking “Is Ramona a hypocrite?So we ask, will the real cyber bully please stand up?

Vicki Gunvalson Boyfriend Brooks
Very negative publicity and unflattering reports of arrests for a DUI and unpaid child support in tow, Vicki Gunvalson is standing by her man.

In the current issue of UsWeekly magazine, the Real Housewives of Orange County star not only defends beau Brooks Ayers, but also denies she cheated on her estranged husband Donn Gunvalson with him. A report came out a week ago with an ex-girlfriend of Brooks stating Vicki had been involved with him since 2007. Even more puzzling was the handwritten letter Vicki sent to a judge on behalf on Brooks last August, two months before filing for divorce from Donn.

“We never had an affair,” states Vicki, 49 of her romance with Brooks, 44. It however appears Vicki took a page from the book of her BFF Tamra Barney as the UsWeekly article states she has been dating Brooks for the past 8 months. Just when did Vicki file for divorce? Exactly eight months ago in October. Did she start dating Brooks hours days after filing for divorce???

The report of the 8-month romance is even more surprising because when the reports about Brooks first came out, Vicki downplayed their relationship claiming “I’ve only just started dating this guy, we’ve had like three dates.”

Vicki also takes a page out of Gretchen Rossi’s handbook when she denies Brooks was a deadbeat dad despite his two arrests for being just that. “He fell back on payments,” she admits but says he’s paid $100,000 to his ex over a span of years. “Is that a deadbeat dad?” asks Vicki.

And during her Sunday night appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, Vicki went a step further when she revealed she is in love with Brooks adding, “I knew everything. There wasn’t any secrets and lies.”

When asked about the hypocrisy of her situation, you know, being that she has called out Slade Smiley for not paying his child support once or twice, Vicki attempted to defend herself. “If the viewers saw me the last year” said Vicki. “I never talked about Slade. It’s his business and his life and I don’t want him in mine.” Well those in glass houses have no business throwing rocks.

And speaking of Slade, Gretchen tweeted a photo this week of him with his eldest son Gavin Smiley with the caption “Having lunch with Slade’s oldest son Gavin and his girlfriend Kenna! Love them! Gavin is such a sweet and good kid!” That photo is below.

Kim Kardashian is wasting zero time in moving ahead with her wedding plans!

Just weeks after fiance Kris Humphries proposed to her, the 30-year-old Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has set a wedding date for August. “The date that close friends of the family are being given is toward the beginning of August,” an insider tells Popeater. “They are looking at private estates in Los Angeles, since location will make it much easier for guest flying in to attend.”

And this time around, pimpmomager Kris Jenner is planning to go all out as she has more time to plan this wedding than she did for daughter Khloe‘s quickie wedding to Lamar Odom.

“The last Kardashian wedding was insane,” a family friend reveals. “This time Momma Kris wants time to plan and prepare and make sure the entire family has time to enjoy getting ready for the big day. Kris deserves this moment … and she fully intends to make sure every detail is just perfect.” Kris deserves this moment???

Oh well, Kris’s moment aside, the E! network will air Kimmy’s wedding as a 2-hour special similar to the way they did Khloe’s back in 2009. “Kim really wants her fans to celebrate with her on the most important day of her life,” says a source. Well that and also that massive check from E!

In other KUWTK news, Khloe Kardashian is revealing she recently lost 10 pounds and is now a size 8! Khloe tells UsWeekly she did it the healthy way. “I like working out and eating well,” she said, adding that her diet is “all about moderation.”

However sources tell UsWeekly Khloe lost the weight due to pressure from her mom who wasn’t happy with her weight. If you recall, the pimp known as Kris slammed Khloe months ago citing her weight makes her a bad spokesperson for the Quicktrim diet supplements she endorses.

“Khloe felt really low after that,” a source says of the 5-foot-10 star. The source however insists Khloe didn’t shed the pounds for anyone but herself. Uh uh. Above is a recent photo of Khloe taken June 18.

On last night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert finally got the closure she had been looking for from douche-bag contestant Bentley Williams.

While in Hong Kong, host Chris Harrison revealed Bentley had returned and wanted to speak with Ashley. While Ashley had been hoping Bentley would return to stay and fight for her love, she got her heart broken a second time when Bentley revealed he was there to end their “relationship.”

CLICK HERE FOR SPOILERS ON ASHLEY’S FINAL FOUR & FIANCE!

The good news? Ashley was surprisingly strong and finally realized Bentley was a d-bag who never cared about her to begin with. “I cannot believe I wasted so much time on Bentley,” said Ashley after her meeting with Bentley. “He’s such a player. He disrespected me to the core and I don’t understand what I did to deserve this. Bentley, if you’re watching this, f–k you, I’m done with you.”

In her latest blog for PEOPLE, Ashley explains why she wasn’t able to see through Bentley’s BS earlier on. An excerpt is below –

“In last night’s episode, I hope you were finally able to see what Bentley was consistently doing in each conversation with me. His ego and competitiveness made him want to “get the girl,” but you know, as well as I do (now), that I was certainly not what he wanted.

But he continually fed me lines like, “I didn’t think I would miss you as much as I did,” and, “Come to Salt Lake City.” It was only at this meeting that I was able to clearly see the way he would try to smooth talk his way into my heart and then attempt to crush it on his way out. Looking back, one would think that I would be fearful that my judgment was not intact. However, I am more fearful of the fact that there are men out there so convincing of untruth.”

Ashley also adds that she’s happy to close the B chapter, for good this time. “You will never have to hear the B–– word again,” promises Ashley.

Meanwhile, Ashley decided to come clean to her guys last night causing one of the men, Ryan “Mickey” McLean, to throw a tantrum and leave the show. “You lied to us,” said an angry Ryan. “I just don’t see what the hell you saw in that guy. I thought we had a lot in common, but if that’s what you’re looking for, send me home. I’m just not interested.” Safe to assume Ryan probably wasn’t interested to begin with and was just looking for an excuse to exit the show.
