The cover teases Teresa and Joe might have split up with the headline “Teresa’s Shocking Split.” And inside the article, Joe Guidice admits he and Teresa have been having fights over her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa. In fact Joe admitted he once went a week without talking to Teresa after a fight.
The In Touch story was all the more surprising since Teresa sold gave an exclusive interview to the mag. So is their marriage on the rocks? “Of course not!” Teresa tells Popeater. “Joe and I were just in Miami together for our birthdays, and we’re in San Diego together right now for my ‘Fabulicious’ book tour. ”
When asked about the In Touch cover touting her “shocking split,” Teresa stated that “you’re not supposed to judge a magazine by its cover.” Allrighty. Also below are two photos from the In Touch article of a younger Teresa and her little brother Joe .
Meanwhile, Teresa recently hit the beach with hubby Juicy Joe. The 39-year-old mother of four showed off her rocking bikini body in a sparkly green bikini in Miami Beach. The couple was in Florida as a part of Teresa’s book tour for her latest cookbook, Fabulicious, and also to celebrate Juicy’s birthday!
And in case you’re wondering, pictured above with Marlo is her fiance NFL Player Charles Grant. And if that names rings a bell to you, it’s because Charles has been heavily rumored to have had a fling with a certain Ms. Nene Leakes. In fact, Nene was rumored to have gotten pregnant for Charles just back in December.
Both Nene and Charles denied the rumors back then but with Bravo’s strategic casting of Marlo, one has to wonder if those rumors were true after all. The StraightFromTheA blog speculates that Marlo was brought on to stir up some trouble with the Nene. Even more interesting, Marlo is said to be a stylist who has styled Nene in the past plus she has an arrest record for assaulting anther female, reportedly over a man.
And as was reported a while back, all of the Atlanta housewives from last season are returning this season so Marlo is not replacing anyone on the show. There had been some rumors that she was brought on to replace Nene but those are false. Marlo’s casting also makes sense as a report came out a month ago stating Bravo is seriously in talks with both Nene and Kim Zolciak to give them their own spinoff shows a la Bethenny Frankel. And we all know what happened with Bethenny as she ended up not returning to the Real Housewives of NYC.
While Bravo has yet to officially confirm Marlo’s casting (they never do until a series is ready to debut), it’s safe to say Marlo is the newest Atlanta Housewife! That is unless Bravo has a change of heart and decides to give her the Fernanda Rocha treatment, aka demote her to an extra because she ended up being too boring. But judging from Marlo’s storyline, that is highly unlikely.
More photos below of Marlo with the other RHOA housewives.

Bringing you more details today about Kim Kardashian’s engagement to beau Kris Humphriesand the upcoming wedding! Just in case you have yet to purchase the latest issue of PEOPLE magazine which has all the exclusive details of the engagement, including photos of Kimmy’s bedroom during the actual proposal.
When it comes to the possibility that Kim’s wedding and honeymoon will likely be broadcasted on the E! network, home of her reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney Kardashian’s response is ‘Well duh!’ “It comes with the territory,” Kim’s sis Kourtney told E! before Khloe chimed in: “I mean, I would assume it would be…we sell our souls to E!, but that’s obviously up to Kim and Kris.”
And experts are predicting the wedding will easily net Kim at least $5 million! Popeater estimates the sales of the photos alone will yield at least $3 million — $2 million for domestic rights to the photos and an additional $1 million for the international rights. And then there’s the money E! will pay to air the wedding in addition to the wedding vendors who will be willing to pay big bucks to be featured in “the celebrity nuptials of the year.”
In fact, Khloe Kardashian is comparing it to the royal wedding. Oh yes she did! “It’s going to be royal wedding number two,” Khloe, 26, told E! News Wednesday. “I could only imagine Kim having the hugest wedding.” Khloe also makes an interesting comment about Kim, who is seemingly always in a relationship “Kim has always been a hopeless romantic,” Khloe told UsWeekly. “She thinks she is a Disney character, like everything is a great love story. It’s so sweet and cute. It’s just Kim. I feel like she is very much in love with love.”
And today, Kim, 30, is currently in Monaco on vacation with Kris and his family. They departed on Thursday. “I wanted to propose before the trip so we could really spend some quality time together with my family as a couple,” Kris, 26, tells PEOPLE. “I planned it out this way.”
Perhaps the most surprising part of everything is that Kris and Kim are actually planning to marry this summer, before Kris begins his fall basketball season. So what does Kimmy love the most about Kris? “If I’ve had a long day, I’m working really hard or I’m stressed, I just can’t wait to come home to him,” she tells PEOPLE. “The time that we’ve spent together, we have so much fun together and he always, no matter what, puts me in a good mood.”
Also, a lot of people have expressed curiosity at Kris’s race. According to reports, Kris is of mixed race. His mother Debra Humphries is Caucasian and his father William Humphries is African American. Kris also has two older sisters, Krystal and Kaela.
UPDATE – Below is a photo of Kris with his mom, dad, and one of his sisters –
A photo of Kim’s 20.5 diamond engagement ring, reportedly worth $2 million, is below –

Following a successful first season on American Idol, judge Jennifer Lopezis revealing she is uncertain about a return to the show next season.
After Wednesday’s finale, Jlo, 41, refused to confirm whether she would sign on for the upcoming 11th season of the show.
“It’s too early to tell,” said Jennifer, who is believed to be in contract negotiations with FOX. Unlike her fellow judges, Randy Jackson andSteven Tyler who have multi-year deals with FOX, Jennifer only signed a one year contract for a reported $12 million.
It however seems the FOX network would love to have Jlo back on. “Everyone has multiple-year contracts. Jennifer had [a] single-year contract. We loved having her — the hope and expectation is she’ll return,” FOX chief Peter Rice said earlier this week.
This is all likely a negotiation ploy for Jennifer, who is said to have earned significantly less money from the show than Randy and Steven. Steven reportedly raked in $18 million for his first season alone.
Meanwhile, following the kiss seen around the world during the Idol finale on Wednesday, new winner Scotty McCreery is now responding to the rumors that he is romantically involved with runner-up Lauren Alaina, 16.
So are they an item? “Oh no,” Scotty, 17, said during a conference call on Thursday. “We’ve been getting that question all morning. Me and her – it’s a brother-and-sister relationship.”
So what was up with the kiss? “She told me before the show she was going to [kiss me],” he said. “It was kind of like a joke. She’s a character.” Scotty also added, “We are really close friends. I met her on day one of Hollywood Week.” So there you have it folks! They are just “really close friends.”

And immediately following the airing of the show, Ramona’s costar Countess LuAnn de Lesseps kept it classy by making the following tweet – “The fortune teller was spot on with all of us. It was scary.” See what the Countess did there? A not so subtle dig at Ramona by insinuating the fortune teller’s tale was accurate.
Ramona was however one of the guests on Watch What Happens Live last night, during which she denied her husband Mario Singeris cheating on her. “Well I never take fortune tellers to heart. I know what I have,” she said of Mario.
When informed of the tweet from the Countess, Ramona appeared visibly upset. “Hello, she’s the one who’s cheated left and right on her husband. She’s cheated on him, he’s cheated on her,” said Ramona. “What is she talking about? I never cheated on my husband. He never cheated on me.”
Andy Cohen also asked her the drinking question as many fans of the show this season have wondered if she has a drinking problem, you know, since she’s always shown with a half full glass of wine or flipping out whenever her own Pinot Grigio line is unavailable. Well Ramona also denied having any issues with the alcohol.
“You know what, I don’t have a drinking problem. I definitely have a glass or two at dinner. I drink responsibly. I don’t drink and drive. I wouldn’t have 4 businesses. I wouldn’t have a marriage,” said Ramona. “It’s just unfortunately some of these women are threatened by me or let’s say they just want to attack me for certain reasons.” She later added that she is simply a “social drinker” and that wine is only about 8% alcohol.
I suspect this is a case of Ramona trying too hard to plug her Pinot line on the show gone wrong, but perhaps it could be the editing. Or then again, maybe she just drinks too much. But don’t they all?
Some of our readers are also speculating if the “fortune teller” might have been planted, you know, to stir up drama. This actually never crossed my mind but it could be a possibility. For one, Brad, the guy who planned the party and set up the reading with the fortune teller, made it known he wasn’t a fan of Ramona’s.

Other Bravo stars in the commercial include Kathy Griffin, Kara DioGuardi, Padma Lakshmi, and Patti Stanger. If you recall, this was the same shoot in which some of the Bravo housewives reportedly felt snubbed by Top Chef host Padma, who they say ignored them during the shoot.
On the 8th episode this season titled “Misfortune Teller,” LuAnn hosts the ladies in Morocco, where she nabs Sonja and Ramona trying to secretly leave the property shortly after they arrive. Later, Jill runs into an old friend while shopping, and he invites the women to his birthday party, which features a fortune teller and a snake charmer.
Will this be a repeat of Scary Island? We can only hope have no idea but judging from the Bravo previews, it will be a dramatic trip that will span over 3 episodes! The new episode airs tonight at 10/9c.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are Ramona Singer and news figure Willie Geist.
Meanwhile, in an interview with E! Online, Sonja Morgan briefly touched on her money and legal woes. Sonja filed bankruptcy last year and less than a week ago, a judge denied her appeal to get a $7 million judgment against her dismissed. Hannibal Pictures sued Sonja for agreeing to finance a movie, and then backing out of the deal.
“I had a slate of five films ready to go,” explained Sonja of her production company Sonja Productions. “I had one movie in the can and another movie fell through and a big lawsuit.”
Sonja adds that she was no longer able to finance the movie after she filed for divorce. “It was really hard on me…all while I was dealing with the divorce and I have a little child to take care of and a big house to maintain,” she said. A preview clip of the new episode is below.

She graces the latest cover of In Touch Weekly magazine (out on stands Friday) under the heading “Fame Destroyed My Family.” Things reached a boiling point for Teresa during the Christening ceremony of her nephew as her younger brother Joe Gorgacalled her “garbage” in addition to a nasty words of exchange with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.
Teresa, 39, tells In Touch that she won’t “stoop down to Melissa’s level” and refuses to use the word “jealous” to describe Joe & Melissa, though Teresa’s husband Joe Guidice has no problem doing just that. “Melissa is the most jealous person in the world, and she’s a liar,” says Joe.
Teresa also reveals that the situation with her brother is causing marital problems, with Joe telling In Touch, “I told her a bunch of times not to mention the brother in front of me—I don’t want to hear it and when I hear the name I get pissed off…There have been a couple of times when she has said the name, and I almost did leave.” Joe adds that he once ignored Teresa for an entire week after a heated spat.
And when it comes to Joe’s mounting legal problems, he blames the Bravo hit show stating that being more recognizable has made him and Teresa targets. “It seems like nobody ever went to jail for the stupid thing I went to jail for,” said Joe. That stupid thing is a DUI he received in January of last year. He served 10 days in jail in September. As for his most recent arrest in March, Teresa says she will continue to “stand by” her man, while Joe’s confident he will be exonerated.
The most shocking part of the story is when Teresa reveals that her eldest daughter Gia has been getting bullied at school since her aunt and uncle (Melissa and Joe) joined the show. “The other day at school, a kid went up to my daughter and said, ‘Your family is embarrassing.’ She told me she was crying,” revealed Teresa. Wowzers. Thank goodness Gia’s classmates missed the episodes with the table flipping, shoving of Andy Cohen or the humiliating and very public bankruptcy that made headlines last year. But all snark aside, it’s always sad to see the kids suffer for the consequences of the adults around them. Here’s to hoping things get better for little Gia.
And lastly, Teresa reveals that the turmoil has been especially hard for her sick dad who suffers from emphysema. “It’s breaking my heart,” says Teresa. “My brother knows how sick our dad is. I don’t know why he would do what he did.” She’s referring to the actions of her brother Joe when he began yelling at their dad during the Christening drama.
Oddly enough, Teresa makes no mention of a desire to quit the show in the article. You can read more of Teresa’s interview as well as see photos from her past in the current issue of In Touch. A bigger image of the cover is below.
In other Teresa news, move over Rachael Ray! As Teresa reveals she wants her own cooking show. While talking to the Miami Herald last week, Teresa, who has written two cookbooks, one of which made the NY Times best seller list, revealed her desire to get her own show.
It seems while the RHONJ has caused a strain for Teresa, it could also help achieve her latest goal. “When I first got into this, I didn’t do it for the money. I did it for fun,” said Teresa. “Now hopefully I’ll get my own cooking show. Maybe it’ll take me there.’’
Well if anything Teresa’s show would be entertaining, at least the part where she tries to pronounce her “ingredientces!”
