In attendance were Alexis Bellino and her husband, Lynne Curtin and her daughter Alexa, as well as Tamra Barney. According to numerous reports, Tamra walked the red carpet with her new beau Eddie Judge. They were however not photographed together. Not in attendance was Gretchen Rossi who of course had much bigger fish to fry.
And I hate to think it, say it, or even admit it but Alexis looks much prettier since her plastic surgery, no?

As this season of theReal Housewives of New York City moves along, it becomes more and more obvious that Jill Zarin is the “source” who leaked this story and this story to the press. The first story is the infamous Bethenny is friendless story and the second one is the story that came out earlier this year about Alex and Simon possibly being cut from the show.
Moving right along to this week’s recap -
Bethenny – I blogged about her pregnancy leak last year and thought it was very wrong for Perez Hilton to leak the story, especially considering her age amongst other factors. I mean the woman was only 8 weeks pregnant for goodness sakes. Her reaction and Jason’s reaction seemed genuine and understandable. And a lot of people are now asking how could this have leaked to Perez? Well for one, there are usually 6 – 10 production people involved in the filming of each scene for the show, and considering Bethenny filmed her pregnancy test just weeks earlier, the possibilities of the leak are endless. Plus in Perez’s story, he claimed Bethenny was in talks with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy with them at the three month mark. My guess is someone from UsWeekly leaked that info to Perez. But I loved Jason in this episode, he seems like a stand up man, and perfect for Bethenny.
Next we see LuAnn, Sonja and Jill engage in a conversation about Bethenny and party planning, during which Jill informs us she has a google alert on herself. For some reason, I am not surprised. By the way google alerts is something that alerts you whenever a story is written about someone, a show etc. Jill, the gossip queen that she is, seems more concerned about the gossip factor than the actual news about Bethenny’s pregnancy. And you have to love her dig about LuAnn’s evite invitations not being up to par. LuAnn also informs us that Bethenny blocked her from twitter, which is a bit petty in my opinion for Bethenny to do that, if she did. Was a bit surprised about this as it doesn’t seem like Bethenny’s M.O.
We then get a brief view of new housewife Jennifer Gilbert during a meeting with Jill, and umm yeah, with Jill doing most of the talking, we will have to wait until the next episode to learn anything about Jennifer. Sonja is starting to grow on me, she seemed a bit more interesting in this episode, as she showed us there’s more to her than just talking about sex. Taking Ramona along with her to the plastic surgeon’s office was probably not necessary and just done for good tv. Her scene with her physic during ,which she got emotional when talking about her former marriage, was a however good scene. Great to see another dimension to her.
And then we have the phone call between Alex and Bethenny, during which Bethenny confirms her pregnancy news. And Bethenny informs Alex that Jill sent her an email on how to handle the rumor. Just like Jill, to want to involve herself in the “scandal” as a means to get press/publicity for herself. Anyone remember last summer when Jill started hanging out with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan, and even began speaking to the press on behalf of Jon? Enough said. Bethenny was fortunately able to see through Jill’s very transparent colors.
Bethenny then makes the error of casually informing Alex that she could tell Jill she’s done with the friendship if she sees Jill talking about the pregnancy news. Alex, who ofcourse has a score to settle with Jill couldn’t be happier to deliver the message. We then get to Ramona’s event with Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn in attendance. Jill informs us she plans on taking the high road, and will not ruin Ramona’s event like Ramona did her Kodak event. Seconds after saying this, we see Jill saying there’s no need for any more skin care lines in the world and then proceeds to trash the food at the event. Oh yeah, did I mention Ramona’s event was to promote her new skin care line? Nice to see Jill being the “bigger person” on this one.
So last year Danielle Staub was able to get a court injunction to stop her former fling Steve Zalewskifrom selling some sex footage of her, but get this, there is now another new sex tape of the 47-year-old reality star, that will soon be released according to a new report.
And this new tape is a full on explicit sex tape that shows the Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star engaging in various sexual acts with an unidentified man.
Danielle’s ex-boy toy Steve, the younger man Danielle dated during Season 1, spoke to Zap2it and said he is not the man on the new sex tape. Citing that his tape of Danielle only included a few scenes of Danielle giving him oral sex, with the remaining footage being mostly of her alone, shooting herself doing sex acts.
And what’s on this new explicit tape? According to CrabbyGoLightly.com, Danielle and her pierced you know what can be seen engaging in “some missionary, some doggy style, and some pile-driving” with the unidentified male in the 45 minute tape. The crabbygolightly site claims, “You really don’t see her partner’s face, just his condom-covered member. At least she’s practicing safe sex.”
Sex tape queen Danielle has yet to publicly comment on this new tape. The new season of the New Jersey Housewives premieres May 3 on Bravo.
Gretchen, 32, who skipped a crucial hearing last week and was threatened with an arrest warrant showed up to court with her boyfriend, Slade Smiley. This is all regarding the $18,000 amount awarded to her ex-boyfriend Jay Photoglou regarding a slander suit he filed against her last year.
It seems Gretchen decided she would pay Jay off to shut him off, there is however a catch. Gretchen’s attorney requested the case be extended until Friday, so that they could give Jay his money in the from of a bond, and not a check.
Why you might ask? Well apparently the sleazeballJay owes the IRS $30,000 and Gretchen’s lawyer Gregory Brown, told the Judge that Jay shouldn’t get a penny of Gretchen’s payout. Instead, the money should go directly to the IRS.
Jay was not in court on Thursday and all parties are due again in court Friday. Must say, very smart move by Gretchen’s lawyer. Regardless of your thoughts on Gretchen, this Jay character is a scumbag and doesn’t deserve a penny from Gretchen or anyone.

The book titled ‘I Just Want You to Know: Letters to My Kids on Love, Faith, and Family,’ has only sold 10,084 copies since its April 13th release reports UsWeekly. The non-fiction title debuted at #11 on the New York Times’ non fiction bestseller list, and at #103 on USA Today’s bestsellers chart.
Compared to the huge success of her previous books, including Multiple Blessings which sold 523,000 copies in 2009, the sales numbers for the new book is down right disastrous. According to experts, it is on par to sell only 50,000 copies, despite her recent media blitz.
There is however some good news for Kate. According to TMZ, the Pennsylvania Dept. of Labor has approved and cleared her eight children to continue to appear on reality television. As we previously reported, Kate has two new upcoming reality shows with the TLC network, including Kate Plus 8, which will continue to follow the lives of Kate and her eight children.
There’s a new shocking report by UsWeekly magazine claiming The Hills star Heidi Montag might be addicted to painkillers after undergoing 10 plastic surgery procedures last year.
According to US, sources on the set of The Hills fear that the 23 year-old reality star is in trouble. “She’s a shell of her former self,” a show insider reveals. The source adds that Heidi and her husband, Spencer Pratt, have developed increasingly weird behavior, which includes falsely accusing the Hills creator of sexual harassment, and Spencer threatening the life of a female producer.
“They are addicted to the fame,” the source says. “As The Hills winds down and people start to care less, they are desperate to get back that high.”
In other news, PEOPLE magazine is reporting that Spencer has created a dating reality show for Emilio Masella, the ex-boyfriend of Jersey Shore star Snooki. Despite only being dumped by Snooki just two weeks ago for being a famewhore, it seems Emilio is wasting zero time in moving on.
Apparently Spencer has a production company (who knew?), Pratt Productions, and has teamed up with Emilio for his new dating show, Fist Pumping for Love, which will follow Emilio as he travels the country “in search of love.”
“I am tired of these fake Italian girls,” said Emilio, who dated Snooki (real name Nicole Polizzi) for four months. “I want a real guid-ette who can speak Italian, so we are prepared to take my search from Hollywood, Calif., to the streets of Howard Beach in Queens, N.Y.”

TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
After a few weeks of silence, it seems Tamra Barneyand Simon Barney are back at it again. Despite their past pleas and promises to make their impending divorce peaceful for the sake of their kids, their actions continue to tell a different story.
According to TheDirty website, Real Housewives of Orange County star Simon posted the following message on his facebook page this past weekend: “It was Tamra’s weekend to have the kids & she left & went to LA with Lynne, Frank & her Boy Toy. She was suppose to return Sunday but she called and said she got “Stuck” in LA. LA is only 45 min. away how do you get “Stuck”? But yet she had pics of them out at lunch & shopping yesterday.”
A quick look at Simon’s facebook page this morning shows no mention of the above post, but there’s a good chance he has since deleted it.
Tamra however didn’t take too well to the post/accusation and sent the site’s owner, Nik Richie (yes the same Nik Richie who just married former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas), the following text message -
“Hi Nik, I just read the recent post about me going to L.A. It makes me sick that Simon stoops to such low levels to make me look bad. I’m not going to get into a public pissing match with this bitch! But it is all a lie to make me look bad. He is mad cause I was out having fun WITHOUT him. His control issues will never stop. I hope the man gets help soon.”
A screenshot of Tamra’s text message is below. Tamra and Simon both need to stop airing their dirty laundry and start acting like adults, at least for the sake of their kids.
