According to the site, Rachel sent one of Jake’s friends an email asking to be set up with the newly-single former pilot. But it seems Jake wasn’t too keen on dating the Celebrity Rehab4 cast member.
“Jake thinks she’s probably a ‘nice girl’ but isn’t looking to date anytime soon,” the source said. As for what Jake wants in a woman, he jokingly tells UsWeekly he likes “blondes, brunettes, redheads or any combination.”
Jake adds, “I’m just looking for a sweetheart. That’s the biggest thing. I’m looking for a girl that has a really big heart.” Getting into another relationship is however not on Jake’s radar at the moment. “You know what, being single sometimes isn’t a bad thing. It gives you time to worry about you and work on yourself.”
In other news, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinezare still going strong an entire week after their show ended. For those not familiar with the show, a week in Bachelor/Bachelorette couple history is equivalent to about a year month in ‘real life.’
The two have even moved into their new place in San Diego, CA. Ali twitted, “All moved into our place in San Diego- minus the furniture. So excited to decorate our home together”.
And as for their wedding, you know since they are engaged and all, the two are wanting to tie the knot by next summer and are open to doing it on national television.
“We’re definitely open to that idea,” Roberto said. “The money we can save on that, we could use to invest in our lives. You know what? It’d be kind of cool to share that moment.”
In tonight’s episode, the housewives take a trip to Venice, Italy sans Danielle Staub. Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline head to Venice for a family vacation and are excited to explore the city on water. The three and their crew enjoy all that the city has to offer but are upset by their non-singing gondola guys! Will the ladies make it through the trip in one piece or will the famous Housewife drama follow them across seas? Find out tonight at10/9c on Bravo.
Also coming up in tonight’s episode is the Joe Giudice DWI arrest. Joe was arrested back on January 14th for driving under the influence, and as we reported yesterday, he has been sentenced for his driving offense.
However in a preview clip for tonight’s new episode, Joe denies he was drinking that night, even though his blood-alcohol content after the crash was .11 percent, above the .08 percent at which a motorist is considered intoxicated in New Jersey.
This isn’t the first time Joe has had driving issues, as his driving license has been suspended an astonishing total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years. As for Joe’s sentence, the judge “imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended, providing the community service is completed.”
UPDATE - Thanks to our reader Bryan, Danielle Staub is now denying to HollywoodLife that she tweeted Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes should kill herself.
This all began last week when a twitter user @PrinceEdwiin tweeted to Danielle that it was his birthday and he wanted “Ashley Holmes to kill herself and videotape it.” Danielle then replied to him saying: “happy birthday. May every wish come true!”
Well Danielle’s stupid defense is now that she doesn’t read every single tweet sent to her and that she sometimes barely reads what is said to her, adding that “I never tweeted that Ashley should kill herself! I would never wish death upon Ashley! I can’t stand the fact it has gotten this far.” Umm then who made the tweet Danielle?
Danielle also seems to be confused about how twitter works as she wonders how @PrinceEdwin was able to tweet to her since he doesn’t follow her. Umm will someone please inform Danielle people who don’t follow you can tweet to you?

The highly talked about Bachelor Pad is set to premiere tonight on ABC at 8 P.M./ET.
The show will feature 19 Bachelor and Bachelorette alums as they try to find love and win money at the same time. The lone winner of the show will end up walking away with $250,000.
In tonight’s premiere, the contestants will arrive separately via limousine to greet co-host Chris Harrison, the other host is Melissa Rycroft. They are unaware of who else is on the show and according to UsWeekly, and weatherman Jonathan is not happy to see his nemesis Craig M.
On more of the premise of the show – there will be a competition in each episode and the winner of each competition gets a rose and he/she gets to pick three people to go on a date with. During the date, the winner will hand out a rose to someone, and that person is then safe from elimination. One guy and one girl will be ousted each week.
While the competition aspect sounds interesting enough, the juicy part of the show comes in form of the hooks ups amongst the cast members, and there are reportedly lots and lots of it! As for what to expect tonight and this season in terms of hooking up, and not who wins the competion. Some spoilers are below -
Elizabeth Kitt (Bachelor: Jake) is in love with Jesse Kovacs (Bachelorette: Jillian), but the feeling isn’t mutual, and when Jesse K tells her they should just be friends while doing the show, she threatens to have her girlfriends in the house vote him out.
In the premiere episode, Natalie Getz (Bachelor: Jason) and Jesse Beck (Bachelorette: Ali) strike up a quick romance and are quickly seen making out all over the house, thus making them a target to be split up by the other contestants.
Nikki Kaapke (Bachelor: Jason) and Juan Barbiere (Bachelorette: Jilian) are said to have dated off the show with things not ending well between the two, which will likely lead to some show drama.
Star magazine also gives these juicy tidbits about the show’s cast -
Gia & Wes: She may have a boyfriend back home, but that didn’t stop Jake Pavelka’s castoff from locking lips — a lot — with the aspiring country singer (from Jillian Harris’ season). “She was smitten,” says an insider.
David & Jessie: When it came to the ladies, he was like a kid in a candy store! David, who was also dumped by Jillian, hooked up with both Natalie and Jessie. “He’ll do anything to get ahead in the game,” says the insider.
Tenley & Kiptyn: The temperature spiked in the hot tub when these two and things “got really steamy” one night, says the insider. “I’m pretty sure Tenley fell in love with him, but Kiptyn is such a player.”

Bravo’s newest hotmess Michaele Salahi continues her reign of being in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
UsWeekly is reporting, via the Washington Post, that the Real Housewives of DC star and her husband Tareq Salahi were presented with court papers from PR firm Brotman-Winter-Fried Communications during their private premire party on Thursday.
The lawsuit is regarding the more than $15,000 in unpaid fees the couple allegedly owes the PR firm from a 2008 polo event.
“It was an affidavit for debtors interrogatory,” Steve Winter, president of BWF, said. “It means they’ll have to appear in court to discuss their financial means — how they are capable of paying off the debt.”
In other Salahi news, RadarOnline is now reporting today that Michaele and her hubby are hoping to come out with a Barbie doll in the image of Michaele.
“The Salahis want to produce a Barbie Doll of Michaele in her red sari dress — the same outfit she wore when ‘gatecrashing’ the White House,” said one source, who was familiar with their grand plan. “They even, ambitiously, want to sell the rights of the doll to Mattel or another toy maker in the hopes it could generate worldwide sales and become the next Malibu Stacy.”
The Salahis business plan doesn’t end there as they also want to come out with a Halloween costume. “They also want to make Halloween costumes of themselves and sell the rights to a major store, such as Wal-Mart,” adds the source.
Coming out next month? The release of the couple’s new book, Cirque Du Salahi: Be Careful Who You Trust, which will reportedly detail their White House crashing fiasco.
And move over Teresa and Joe Giudice! There’s a newer and more morally bankrupt Bravo couple in town! While the Salahis pretend to be high class, rubbing elbows with the nation’s elite on the Bravo reality show, it seems they have a lot more in common with the Giudices from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Like Teresa and Joe, the Salahis also have a history with bankruptcy and state court filings. RadarOnline reports that in 2004, an Aston Martin, worth $150,000 and a $90,000 boat were repossessed, as part an auction. This was in addition to unpaid bills for limousine services, tens of thousands of dollars in credit card debt and even unpaid parking tickets.
Who else is having a forced auction on Aug 22? None other than the Giudices of course! Must say Bravo has a special gift for finding these types of people for their shows.
It seems just like last month we were reporting the shocking news that Eric Snow, husband of DeShawn Snow had gotten his mistress pregnant. Well that was then and this is now as the mistress has now delivered a baby girl for Eric.
StraightFromTheA is reporting the former Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who only filed for divorce back in May, became a dad again on July 14th, as his mistress Marisela Alvarado gave birth to a healthy 8-pound baby girl whom the couple have named Ava Maria Snow. A picture of the baby is below.
While the divorce is still ongoing for the Snows, reports state that Eric, a former NBA player, is worth $20 million and might have to shell out an estimated $8 million dollars to DeShawn along with the Atlanta mansion the couple shared with their three sons.
Eric has yet to publicly comment on his divorce or mistress. DeShawn however seems to be moving on and is said to be working on a Disney project for her three sons. DeShawn is reportedly in talks with the network to cast her three sons, Eric Javon, Darius Michael, and Jarren Christopher in a major Disney deal, which involves a television pilot.
Just days after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was photographed visiting Miles in Texas at his Cowboys training camp, comes a report from E! News stating the two have decided to cool things off. “They’re taking things slowly” and “are cooling off a little,” says an insider, adding that “Kim wants to be single and date around.”
There are however rumors and rumblings that Kim was dumped and leaking this ‘cooling things off’ story to E! News is her way of saving face.
In other Kardashian news, E! News is also confirming that Kourtney Kardashian’s boyfriend Scott Disick is stepping up his plan to get help. We reported last week that Scott was getting therapy for his many problems, and E! is now reporting that he is also seeking help for his alcohol related issues.
“Scott received outpatient rehab treatment and counseling for alcohol use and psychological issues after his Miami outburst,” sources confirm to E! News. “He’s still being treated.”
Bruce tells UsWeekly that the pictures are just like any other modeling photos out there “but because she is 14, all of a sudden [people are like], Is it right for a 14-year-old to do?” he says. “She wasn’t showing anything that was inappropriate — you know, too much cleavage or anything like that. They were just like hot shots … I saw the pictures and I said, ‘OK.’ If that is what she wants to do — she wants to be a model — then more power to her.”
Kendall also defended her modeling pics, telling PEOPLE magazine that “going into this shoot, it was never my intention to be provocative or too racy. It was a beach shoot, and I was wearing beachwear. I am happy with my age, and am not trying to rush into anything too soon. I look forward to all the milestones my teens have to offer–Sweet 16, turning 18, and so on.”
According to our poll, with over 1,000 votes received, 75% of you found the pictures to be too racy for a 14-year-old.
Just when you think you’ve heard it all when it comes to the Giudices, comes two shocking new reports about the Real Housewives of New Jerseyposers stars.
The first report comes courtesy of NorthJersey.com, which states that Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe failed to inform the Bravo network of their bankruptcy filing. According to the site, Bravo did not know about the October 29, 2009 filing until the NYPost broke the story in June.
A Bravo representative tells the site, “We had no idea about any of that,” also adding that the bankruptcy issue will not come up in of the future episodes, including the Aug. 23 season finale.
“We just follow the ladies. They tell us what they’re doing and we decide if we want to film them that day. So, if Teresa [had] said, ‘Hey, guess what, guys? I’m going to file for bankruptcy today,’ we probably would have followed it. But it’s easy for them to not give us that information,” continues the Bravo rep.
The North Jersey site then goes on to make a valid point stating that as “a result of the Giudice’s selectivity, there’s a strange discrepancy between “reality” and real life on ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ this season.”
Joe’s former business partner Paterson Realtor Joe Mastropole, who is listed as being owed $586,000 on the bankruptcy petition, also had some choice words for the Giudices, stating: “It’s really a disgrace… Why are they still pretending to be people they’re not on the show?”
Mastropole wasn’t done talking as he also accuses Joe of being a slumlord. “Mr. Giudice had been collecting rent on [those] three properties … and not paying the mortgages, not paying the oil, not paying the utilities, not paying the taxes, not paying the fines and violations and so on and so forth and put those buildings into a hole. Now, he’s going bankrupt.”
Mastropole also adds that Joe was using money he gave him to pay expenses on those buildings to help build his mansion. “He’d say, we need $5,000 this week. We need $10,000 this week, so at the beginning I would give it to him, thinking that it was legit. I find out that it’s going into his house in Montville.”
An attempt is now being made by Mastropole to block the discharge of Joe’s unpaid debt to him. Adding to Mastropole’s dismay is the fact that a Judge ruled in his favor on Oct. 23, 2009 regarding the debt. However, the Giudices decided to file bankruptcy just days later.
Driving Record – In other news, another shocking new report by the Daily Record states Joe Giudice is now appealing his sentence for the DWI he received earlier this year on January 14, the same one that will be featured on the upcoming episode of the show.
But that is not the shocker folks, the site reports that Joe’s license has been suspended a total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years! The site also adds that at the time of the municipal court trial, Joe had 39 points on his license. The sanctions were for offenses such as speeding, leaving the scene of an accident and careless driving.
This DWI is reportedly Joe’s first, but the Judge did not go easy on him due to his driving history. The judge “imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended, providing the community service is completed.”
