The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3

Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Melissa Gorga is opening up in an all new interview.

Melissa spoke to TV Guide this week during which she touched on her portrayal on the show (she doesn’t feel she was edited fairly for the first 1 -2 episodes), her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice (“a leopard cannot change it’s spots” says Melissa), her singing, and how she really came about being on the show. Excerpts from Melissa’s interview below –

Do you feel you’ve been portrayed fairly on the show so far?
Melissa:
I’m going to have to say the first one or two episodes I was a little disappointed with and I felt that they were heavily edited. And they were. I get it because they wanted to come out with a bang. I do feel like the more you get to know us and know my family, you’re going to see more of the real us and more of the real me and the real Joe. They’re definitely edited, but I feel like now as I’m watching, I’m seeing more of who we are.

Teresa has told the press that you and Kathy approached Bravo about joining the show and not the other way around. Is there any truth to that?
Melissa:
What happened was, I was really just driving in my car on a Friday afternoon when they called me. They just said, “Hi, its The Real Housewives of New Jersey producers. We’re from Bravo. We want to interview you.” I have no idea how they found me. I think they found Kathy on Facebook. Neither of us pursued it, wanted it, were looking for it — it just kind of fell into our laps. Bravo is smart, they figured it out. They heard through the grapevine that there was some type of tension. … They caught on to it.

Do you have faith that your truth about your and Joe’s relationship with Teresa will come by the end of the season?
Melissa:
Yes. I know it was said. I know that it was filmed so I don’t know what they’re going to choose to air and what they are going to choose not to air.

In the last episode, Teresa made a distinction between her old self — who threw out your cookies and things like that — and the new Teresa. Have you seen a difference?
Melissa:
I think maybe she’s trying. She’s trying to be a new Teresa, but Teresa is Teresa. You cannot change a person. A leopard does not change their spots. … You can say what you want to the people, but I feel like it’s very transparent and everyone sees right through it. I know I do. I see certain times where she is acting a certain way, and I just wonder: Does America see it or is it just me?

Viewers are also going to get your pop star side as you start pursuing a singing career. How long have you been singing and trying to go professional?
Melissa
: I have been singing my whole life, but never professionally. It’s just something that I always loved. … This is a great stepping stone for it. I have had the talent my whole life. I have always been the girl who can get on the stage and not be shy. I’m so excited that they captured this all, because it’s a little biography for me as well because I have to see the steps I had to go through to make this happen.

Moving on to tonight’s new episode of the RHONJ (the show moves to Sundays tonight). On the 5th episode this season titled “Stick It,” Teresa encounters her brother for the first time since the tumultuous christening. Elsewhere, Melissa tries to fulfill her dream of being a pop star; Caroline plans to offer matronly advice on the radio; and Jacqueline’s daughter plots to get a car. It airs at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Flipping Out stars Jeff Lewis and Jenni Pulos. And earlier today, Jenni tweeted of photo of her and Andy Cohen and err, she is looking a bit different. Well, we’ll let you be the judge. The pic is below!

Real Housewives of Miami fans can breathe a sigh of relief today as it does not appear the show will suffer the same fate as the DC Housewives.

According to a new report by the Miami Herald, the show will likely return for a sophomore season. However it appears the Bravo network is looking to replace some of the cast members… rightfully so if I might add.

An insider reveals that Bravo has axed the show’s original producers and casting agents and is now using its own staff. In addition to that, Bravo producers are also reported to be in town this weekend to re-interview the original cast.

“Not everyone from the original cast will be back,” says the inside source. As for Bravo, they refuse to confirm or deny the story with a rep for the network stating, “We haven’t made any announcements regarding a second season.”

KUWTK Season 6
They are baaaack! The Kardashians return to the E! network on Sunday, June 12 with the season 6 premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The season kicks off with Kourtney being upset that momager Kris seems to have forgotten the real meaning of family and has turned the Kardashians into a business. Taking matters into her own hands, Kourtney plans a gathering for the family where the only item on the agenda is having fun. Unfortunately, not everyone got the memo and things quickly go awry.

Meanwhile, we get to meet Kim’s new boyfriend (now fiance) Kris Humphries as the two discuss how they met during a date (hint – Kimmy had someone slip him her number) and also engage in a romantic burping contest. Khloe however is having a hard time accepting Kris as she feels Kim falls too quickly for all her boyfriends.

In the preview clip below, Kim heads over to Khloe’s house only to discover Khloe still has photos of her with her ex-boyfriends in her home. The show premieres tomorrow at 10/9c on the E! network.

Tamra Barney vs. Gretchen Rossi take 20.

Days after Gretchen sort of made a valid point called Tamra a hypocrite for her actions on the Real Housewives of Orange County, Tamra is now responding. In a new interview, Tamra refers to Gretchen as being “obsessed” with her and also makes reference to her legal issues and dead-beat boyfriend Slade Smiley.

“Gretchen’s constantly bashing me in interviews is nothing more than a clever diversion, created so the attention is not on the three lawsuits in which she is currently involved and the problems with her [boyfriend Slade‘s] past-due child support,” Tamra tells E! Online via an email she sent to them. “She has NO knowledge of the issues I had with Jeana [Keough], yet she constantly finds reasons to talk about me in interviews, on the show and on her Bravo blogs.”

Tamra continued, “She is nothing more than obsessed with me…You would think with all her legal problems, she would use her time more wisely. I truly feel sorry for her and hope that she lets go of the anger she has in her heart as I did for Jeana Keough.”

Ouch. Tamra also promises all of her drama with Gretchen will be addressed on the upcoming 2-part reunion show.

And speaking of Gretchen’s legal drama, she scored a small victory in court this week against her ex Jay Photoglou. A week after requesting a protective order to keep Jay from talking to the press about certain issues, Gretchen was granted most of it.

A judge granted a protective order which prohibits both Gretchen and Jay from discussing the “sexual history of either party, either party’s financial information,” plus home and cellular telephone numbers and home addresses. As we speculated last week, this order was likely requested by Gretchen to prevent her financial information from leaking to the press during a deposition. Gretchen was ordered to fork over $40,000 to Jay for his legal fees earlier this year and has yet to.

In fact Jay’s attorney Bryan Freedman confirms a deposition is indeed in the works. “Our next move is to take Rossi’s deposition within the next few weeks,” said Bryan.

Teen Mom star Amber Portwood finally faced the music yesterday in an Indiana courtroom regarding the domestic violence case against her.

Amber, 21, was arrested back in December for hitting her baby daddy Gary Shirley, 24, in front of their daughter Leah and in front of MTV cameras. And yesterday, Amber pled guilty to two counts of felony domestic battery.

Though she had been facing up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine, the judge decided to go easy on her. Madison Superior Court Judge David Happe suspended Amber’s two-year sentence, and placed her on two years of probation.

Also as part of her plea deal, the judge ordered Amber to undergo 30 days of inpatient therapy, obtain her high school diploma and put $10,000 in a college fund for her 2-year-old daughter. The prosecutors also dropped the most serious of charges against her — the felony child neglect charge.

And finally, the no contact order that prevented Amber and Gary from being around each other in the presence of Leah was also dropped as a result of the plea deal. So it appears Amber and Gary are once again free to be a disaster happy family. Meanwhile, you will be able to see more of Amber’s drama on the upcoming season of Teen Mom, which premieres July 5 on MTV.

Two weeks after Emily Maynard was photographed without her engagement ring from Brad Womack, she is now confirming the break-up.

Emily, 25, is finally breaking her silence as Life & Style magazine is reporting the former Bachelor winner told a reporter it was Brad, 38, who did the final dumping over the phone.

Emily spoke to the reporter on June 1 and confirmed that things are definitely over between her and Brad. “There’s nothing going on between us anymore,” she sadly admitted. “It’s over. He called me and broke up with me. That’s it — he ended the relationship.”

The duo were last seen together at the beginning of May in Texas in what appeared to be a final effort to save their relationship. “The last time we were together was when we said goodbye at the airport in Austin,” Emily confessed. “That was the last time I saw him.”

It appears Emily is speaking out to quiet down the rumors that she dumped Brad, was never in love with him, and only used him to try to become the next Bachelorette. As for the reason the former couple has yet to put out an official statement regarding the split, it might have to do with their contracts with the ABC network.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3 Teresa Giudice

Fresh off ingredienses-gate, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was the victim of another English language faux-pas.

Teresa, who is actually a college graduate (really she is) failed to detect the very obvious sarcasm tweeted to her yesterday from someone whom we’re guessing is a non-fan.

“Sometimes I beat myself up about not being famous, but when I see @Teresa_Giudice I realize how much talent, brains, & hard work is involved,” tweeted iDealgasm.

Teresa’s response? “@iDealgasm wow! i really appreciate that. what a compliment! xx.” And just in case you have any doubt iDealgasm was being sarcastic, they made it clear with their retort.

“And a great sense of sarcasm!” replied iDealgasm. A screen shot of the exchange is below. Kudos to the Perez Hilton blog for detecting this exchange.

Oh Teresa. But then again perhaps Teresa is really an evil genius who’s in on the joke? Can’t promise that was typed with a straight face.

Bringing you a new photo post this week as the Real Housewives of New York were out and about, attending different events!

Pictured above is the always shy and conservative Kelly Bensimon, as she donned a see through sequins attire with what looks to be a bra and a matching thong? underneath along with some flip-flops? The event was the 2011 CFDA Fashion Awards which took place on Monday in New York.

Below, photos of other housewives Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and Luann de Lesseps as they all attended the 6th annual Made In NY awards also on Monday. Also pictured are Mario Singer and Andy Cohen. All of those photos are below!

Meanwhile, the 43-year-old Kelly recently spoke to OK! during which she made it clear she is a totally like nice person. Kelly tried to explain what separates her from her mean costars. “I don’t have any enemies,” said Kelly . “I like everybody. I am Miss Congeniality. I’m a brunette. I don’t really hate anybody. I mean, they try to make me hate people, but I still don’t.”

And despite trashing castmate Sonja and her home on a recent episode of the Bravo show, Kelly states she is far from being a bitch. “In all honestly, a lot of girls do a lot of really bitchy things. To be honest with you, I think that’s one thing that they’re striving for, is who can be the bigger bitch? But that’s not cool. People don’t like that.”

Kelly added, “My virtual family, they don’t like bitches. They like the cool girl, and I’d rather be cool all day long. I don’t need to be a bitch. Why? Bitch may have sold before, but it doesn’t sell now. It’s a whole new year and a whole new season. It’s all about good people with good values.” So there you have it folks, Kelly bitch is so last year.

And moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the NYC Housewives. The Sex in the City Moroccan trip comes to an end with a bump in the riad. The aftermath of a blowout between Jill and Ramona leaves Ramona still shaken, prompting yet another confrontation. Luann and Alex get into it as well, and minus Ramona, the ladies tour lavish palaces. It airs at 10/9c.
