The former Bachelor“winner” hosted a “Single and Fabulous” party Saturday at Tao Beach and Palazzo Las Vegas’ LAVO. “It was a pretty much a girls-only weekend,” a source tells UsWeekly. “They had fun.
While hosting the beach party at TAO beach, a source reveals Vienna told the crowd, “It’s great to be single and fabulous, Hpnotiq shots for everyone!”
As for how she’s coping with the public split, she is “doing great,” according to an insider. “She went through a tough time, and she’ll never forget it. She feels like she put herself out there and got slapped in the face. It doesn’t matter how thick skinned you are, it’s going to hurt.”
It also seems Vienna is not the only one who made a splash this weekend. RadarOnline is reportingJake Pavelka was photographed on Sunday paddleboarding with a mystery female friend in an attempt to put those pesky gay rumors to rest.
And for the three people who miss seeing Jake on television, fret not as he’s 15-minutes of fame aren’t over just yet. He will be making a cameo appearance on the Lifetime TV show Drop Dead Diva, as well as ABC’s new reality series, Bachelor Pad, when it debuts on August 9. The photos of Jake are posted below as well.
In what seems like deja vu, the Jersey Shore cast is once again in a widely publicized contract dispute with MTV, all regarding the third season of the hit show.
Despite the fact that the 2nd season has yet to even air, TMZ is reporting MTV is ready to begin filming a season three. However, the cast is very unhappy with their contract situation that they refused to shoot scenes for the upcoming third season until they get a better deal.
According to TMZ, the cast was supposed to begin shooting “at home” scenes yesterday for the third season, but JWoww, Ronnie, Sammi, Pauly D and Vinny ended up telling the crews they weren’t shooting without new contracts.
SnookiandThe Situation are scheduled to shoot today, and Snooki will reportedly be following in the footsteps of her castmates, while there’s no word yet on what The Situation plans to do.
The reason the cast wants more money? Well the first season was a huge hit for the MTV network, bringing in higher ratings than The Hills plus sources close to the cast tell TMZ the cast feels they can make more money doing appearances for two months, rather than filming the show.
RadarOnline is also reporting Angelina Pivarnick will not be returning for a third season. Famous for leaving the show early last season, she reportedly did the same again while filming season two in Miami.
Angelina explains why she left the show to Radar, “With all of the people in the house getting physically violent with each other, and all the diva personalities on- and off- camera, I just knew that I’d be happier if I left.” She added, “The working conditions in the house were pretty brutal, I can’t get into details, but you’ll see it all, I’m sure, when season two airs.”
Life goes on in the Big Brother household just days after the biggest fail in the history of BB twists.
Annie Whittington, 27, was revealed as the Saboteur last Thursday. Only one major problem. Annie was also the first house-guest to be evicted from the Big Brother house, basically ruining the “big twist” this season.
While Big Brother deserves major kudos for at least picking a woman to be the moleAmerica’s Player Saboteur, one has to ask, what the heck were they thinking in picking Annie? She was a terrible choice to be the Saboteur as she simply talked too much, did too much, and annoyed her housemates to no end. A lot of TV viewers are wondering why Annie got sent home over Rachel, and it was simply because her housemates found her obnoxious and annoying. The TV editing for some reason did not touch on the fact that the HGs didn’t like her. To sum it up, Annie was simply the wrong person to do the job, and the fact that she couldn’t even last a week in the BB house speaks volumes. Someone like Kristen or Kathy would have been better suited. The Big Brother Saboteur twist equals a MAJOR FAIL.
Zap2It is however reporting the first eliminated HGs, including Annie, will be sequestered. This means there’s a very good chance one of the first 3 – 5 eliminated HGs will be brought back into the game. Plus we still have the lifelong friends twist, so perhaps all hope is not lost for Big Brother 12.
Moving on to this week’s happenings. Rachel surprisingly won HOH, which means “her man” Brendon is safe. Also coming up in tonight’s episode, we get to see Rachel’s nominees and the HGs will find out Annie was the Saboteur.
In today’s spoilers, we reveal the nominees and the POV winner, plus it seems a certain someone isn’t being so true to his Brigade alliance. Find out who below!
TELL US – WERE YOU DISAPPOINTED WITH THE SABOTEUR TWIST? PLUS WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
Despite the fact that she and her husband Joe Giudiceare being accused of perjury, in the form of concealing assets during their bankruptcy filing, in addition to an auction date set for August 22nd to auction off the contents of their home items to pay off their creditors, Teresa Giudice is showing off her home in the latest issue of In Touch magazine.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who seems to be in major denial when it comes to her financial and legal woes, tells the mag of her 12,000-square-foot NJ mansion: “My house is very warm — even though it’s big, it’s very inviting and that’s what I love.”
And despite the fact that her husband’s finances are being investigated by the IRS plus the very public knowledge of her $11 million debt, Teresa makes certain to brag about just how luxurious her mansion is. “We had our house built with nothing but marble, granite and onyx,” she says, “I don’t think you can ever have too much of that. I could’ve had even more,” says Teresa the idiot.
Teresa could also be heard bragging that her mansion is worth $5 mil in last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of NJ, despite the fact that it’s value was listed at $1.7 mil in their bankruptcy filing. More photos of Teresa’s home below.
In other NJ news, more legal woes for Danielle Staub. Just days after her ex-boytoy/former sex tape partner Steve Zalewski filed suit against her for defamation, Zap2It is now reporting that her ex-husband is also planning to file a new lawsuit against her within the next two weeks .
That ex-husband is Kevin Maher, the man who wrote ‘Cop Without A Badge,’ the book which details Danielle’s sordid past as a prostitution coke whore.
Kevin tells Zap2it his attorneys will file a lawsuit against Danielle, her book’s alleged ghost writer and its publisher, Simon & Schuster for “lies” found in her book, “The Naked Truth.”
And what exactly are those lies? “The lie that she told about me was that I beat her in a cocaine stupor for days,” Kevin says. “And then when the police showed up, I confessed and then I went to prison.” He adds, “I was never in prison in my adult life. Period.”
Kevin also reveals he is actually working with Steve and that the two had hoped their suits would hit together. “Steve and I were working together,” he reveals. “We wanted to sue her on both coasts at the same time, but my lawyer was too busy and Steve beat us to it.”
Kelly, who just always happens to be in the same locations as the paparazzi, is pictured above walking in the SOHO district in NYC on July 13th. She gave a new interview to E! News during which she revealed what it would take to have her return for another season (perhaps Kelly should wait until Bravo asks her back first) and even suggests new additions to the NYC cast. Oddly enough, Kelly’s co-star Bethenny had mentioned a few weeks ago that she would only return if changes were made to the cast.
Kelly tells E! News on returning for another season – “We’re just going to see. The deciding factor is really just being able to celebrate these women—I don’t want to fight with people. That’s really like the big deciding factor, if it’s going to be authentic. If it’s not authentic, I don’t want to be a part of that.”
Kelly even has some suggestions for a new cast – “I’ve asked a lot of my friends. If they do want to change up cast, I have a lot of awesome friends that I’m sure would jump on with me. I’d be like, ‘Let’s have some good times. Let’s have some fun here.'”
Kelly is also open to making up with Bethenny – “We haven’t been in touch, because we’re not filming anymore,” Kelly explains, “but her value system has changed. I can be sensationalistic on camera, but my children are the most important things to me. So I’m happy that now we have something to bond over.”
Kelly, who plans on releasing an exercise video any day now, also continues to take her new calling as an health expert very seriously. This time around, she shares her diet and fitness tips with the HollywoodLife, “My largest meal is lunch and then I’ll have a lighter dinner, I eat a lot of carbs at lunch,” she said.
And what does Kelly eat for lunch 6 days a week? Brown rice, tofu and broccoli. Despite running 7 days a week, Kelly largest meal of the day is her 356 calories lunch, which also contains “a lot of carbs.”

They say when it rains it pours, and when it comes to the financial troubles of Teresa Giudice, it seems to be storming.
First news came out that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her husband Joe Giudice filed for bankruptcy last October to the tune of $11 million in debt. Then the NYPost also reported the Giudices’ finances was being investigated by the IRS. News of a $1 million fraud/forgery lawsuit against Joe by his ex-business partner also made headlines.
Fast forward to today and there is now a new story from Zap2It, via the Wall Street Journal, stating the Giudices are being investigated for concealing some of their assets during their bankruptcy filing.
The accusation comes directly from their Chapter 7 trustee John Sywilok, who is responsible for rounding up the couple’s assets in order to distribute payments to their creditors. Sywilok is investigating them for concealing income and assets.
They alleged assets & income concealed include:
Interests in a pizza parlor and Laundromat,
Teresa’s TG Fabulicious clothing and accessories company, and
Teresa’s “Skinny Italian” cookbook, which is a New York Times bestseller
Sywilok also accuses the couple of making false statements under oath about their assets, income and expenses. Perhaps some of our readers knowledgeable in law can comment on the seriousness of this accusation. Is it right up there with tax evasion?
But the financial troubles still doesn’t end there for Teresa and Joe. While Teresa continues to try to convince us her home is safe, despite the fact that it was publicly listed for sale last month, albeit briefly, it seems the contents of her home might be in serious jeopardy.
The trustee is also trying to hold a public auction for the contents of the Giudices $1.7 $5 million NJ mansion, which happens to be the home they live in.
The auction has already been set for August 22, and up for grabs will be the couple’s home furnishings, accessories, tools and a boat.
Ironically enough, Teresa, who might or might not be completely out of touch with reality, is in this week’s issue of InTouch magazine showing off her home. Teresa tells the mag, “We had our house built with nothing but marble, granite and onyx.” She adds,“I don’t think you can ever have too much of that. I could’ve had even more.” And folks, we simply can’t make this up.

Kate, who’s last book ‘I Just Want You to Know’ bombed after its April release, is set to pen an instructional manual for fellow single moms and dads, you know because with the eight kids, bodyguards, nannies, housekeepers, multiple TV appearances, she is just like any other normal single parent.
Moving right along, UsWeekly is reporting Kate is once again the target in a new child labor law probe for the second time in a year span. This time around, Pennyslyvania Rep. Thomas Murt is arguing that state law permits children under the age of 7 to work in movies, but not on television. This would make Kate’s co-stars sextuplets ineligible to appear on her show. However, the possibility of the kids not being allowed to film for TLC is very unlikely.
Kate’s former Dancing With The Stars professional partner Tony Dovolani is also speaking out about the TLC reality star. When asked if he still keeps in touch with Kate at Wednesday’s ESPY awards show red carpet, Tony said: “I’ll be honest. I actually haven’t stayed in touch with her, she hasn’t stayed in touch with me.”
“I needed a break,” continued Tony. “I got a break with my family, and she’s not someone I worry about. I am more concerned with my own family.” Ouch!
Tony was also asked his opinion on the Jake and Vienna split, being that Jake also appeared on DWTS this season. According to Tony, the split was no surprise to him. “In public, I think they were great,” he said of the twosome. “In public, they only showed that they were in love with each other. But you could tell it was fake.”
As for how he new it was just a showmance, Tony added – “You can tell because you can look at a person and tell if they’re in love or they’re not in love. Me being married for ten years, I knew it wasn’t going to last.”
Just days after announcing her lawsuit against her co-stars for assault and defamation, Danielle Staub now finds herself on the receiving end of karma a new lawsuit being filed by her former sex tape partner.
RadarOnline is reporting today that Steve Zalewski, is suing the reality star for defamation of character and harassment. Steve is the same ex that tried to sell a sex tape of he and Danielle a year ago, but was unsuccessful as Danielle won an injunction to stop the release of the tape so she could shop around a better quality one less than a year later. Steve appeared on the 1st season of the Bravo show as Danielle’s “boyfriend.”
The basis of the lawsuit stems from Danielle’s comments about Steve on this season of the RHONJ. In the episode titled “Play at Your Own Risk”, Danielle claims that Steve had filmed the sex tape without her knowledge or consent, much to the non-belief of her fellow co-stars.
Steve’s attorney, Nase Naumoski, denies Danielle’s claims, telling Radar that Danielle absolutely knew about the sex tape and even filmed parts of it herself! Naumoski also adds that they have emails & texts messages that show Danielle knew about the tape & was actually all for it.
Naumoski continues that such claims that Danielle didn’t consent or know of such a tape made his client look like an out right criminal.
RadarOnline also spoke to Steve who says because of the episode, “I have people come up to me in restaurants telling me I’m going to hell, I’m not a good person. I try to explain to people I didn’t do anything wrong. She would send me video texts of her playing with her self, I have nothing to do with that.”
Steve adds, “Basically I want her to stop lying and ruining people’s lives, she’s really out of her mind, there’s something wrong with her. She plays the victim and says everyone is out to get her, but it’s really the other way around.”
