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.”

Just a week after her PEOPLE magazine cover story came out detailing her volatile childhood, Bethenny Frankel’s mother, Bernadette Birk, is now telling her side of the story to Star magazine.
“I love my daughter but what she’s saying is killing me,” Bernadette reveals in a new interview in this week’s issue of Star. Bernadette denies Bethenny’s assertion that she was a bulimic who was always drinking.
Bethenny told PEOPLE Bernadette was “never a mother to me” and calls her childhood “toxic.” Bernadette, an interior design professor, admits there was discord in the family but insists Bethenny was “the most important person in my world.”
Bernadette says she and Bethenny have only spoken twice in the last 10 years, also adding that she only knows what is going on in Bethenny’s world by watching her on television.
Bernadette’s ex-husband and Bethenny’s former stepdad John Parisella did however corroborate Bethenny’s story in PEOPLE.

Judging from last night’s episode, it seems Annie will be the first house guest to leave. The other HGs have revealed they simply deem her a bigger threat than Rachel. Also not shown on TV, Annie has been wrecking major havoc in the house since being on the block, and it seems the other HGs are simply tired of her.
Also tonight, the ‘Saboteur‘ will finally be unveiled! It’s anyone’s guess who it is. The HGs seem to suspect Andrew.
Another twist revealed this week was that two of the HGs are lifelong friends. Britney suspected Brendon and Kristen because she didn’t buy their reactions, while Kristen suspected Matt and Annie because they hadn’t interacted but had more in common than any of the other house guests.
The only thing that’s clear is that this season of Big Brother is one to watch! The new episode airs tonight at 8:00 pm Eastern on CBS.
My Thoughts So Far: Big Brother is indeed my favorite reality show and I must say this season has been great thus far. I wasn’t that impressed with the Saboteur twist, but this lifelong friends twist however has me very intrigued. Now that’s the kinda twist I like!
Saboteur – I really have no clue on who the Saboteur is though I highly doubt it’s Andrew, that would simply be too obvious right? He is too reminiscent of former America’s player Eric. I truly believe (and hope) it is a woman this time around. I suspect Kathy, Annie or Monet. Plus if you notice, the physical stature of the Saboteur seems to be of a smaller stature, similar to that of a woman. But then again, perhaps Big Brother is just screwing with us and has altered the size of the Saboteur. Must say I can’t wait to find out who it actually is tonight.
Lifelong Friends – This is such a great twist, similar to the Twins twist they had in the past. There are a lot of theories as to who these could be. The biggest one is that it is Kathy and Britney, and that they are mother and daughter. Remember during the message to the HGs, the Saboteur said: “And if you think about it, it’s actually quite easy to figure out.” Well Kathy and Britney are both from Arkansas, plus the Saboteur did put Xs on both of their names earlier on, perhaps as a clue to the HGs. Another theory is that if they are not mother and daughter, they are at least related. Another theory is that Matt & Ragan might be brothers.
Brigade Alliance – The Brigade, yikes! This could possibly be the dumbest alliance in BB history. Enzo nicknaming himself Meow Meow? Priceless. There are so many flaws with this alliance. For starters, they will be discovered by the other HGs any minute now. Two, one thing I’ve learned from watching BB is that joining an alliance too quickly is always a bad idea, plus the number of people in the alliance, four, is one too many for the time being. And finally, there are simply one too many idiots in the alliance aka Enzo, Hayden. I am really hoping someone not it the alliance wins HOH tonight and hopefully puts up two people from the alliance.
Showmance – How hot is Brendon by the way? But in all seriousness, it seems Brendon and Rachel are getting way too caught up in their showmance and it is without a doubt affecting their game play. Rachel saying she would have saved Brendon had she won POV was very adorable, but really, has she forgotten her reason for moving into the BB house? These two being so open with their showmance, so soon, is also a bad idea. People are not going to want to go into an alliance with them because they know Brendon and Rachel will always be loyal to each other and put the other first. With that said, I really do like Brendon and am rooting for him.

Just days after Danielle Staubannounced her plans to sue all “perpetrators” involved in the fashion show fiasco, co-star Jacqueline Laurita is now slamming her lawsuit.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is looking much slimmer nowadays, thinks the lawsuit is pathetic. “You can’t defame someone who defames herself,” Jacqueline told Zap2It. “I have not told any lies about her. I never physically touched her or threatened her, so I am not worried.”
Danielle’s attorney, Paul Giblin told the HollywoodLife on Tuesday, “We are going to use this footage and prepare a case against these women,” despite the fact that Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashely Holmes, was the only one shown physically attacking Danielle. Giblin continued, “We are seeking assault and battery charges, defamation of character and punitive damages as well.
No one was arrested as a result of the attack, but Ashley did get fined $189 by the courts for pulling Danielle’s “hair.”
As for Jacqueline, she feels this is just another way for Danielle to get publicity. “She will do anything, and I mean anything, to stay in the press,” she says. “I think she’s pathetic and desperate. Maybe she has a fear that she won’t be asked to return next year so she’s grasping at straws to keep a connection between us. I don’t know.”
In other Danielle Staub news, a new story by Star magazine asks, ‘What Happened to Danielle Staub’s Face?’
The above before and after photo is posted and some surgical experts try to determine what work the 47-year-old hasn’t has had done. The after photo was taken on July 6th.
“Is she wearing a mask?” asks Palm Beach-based dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer. “Her proportions are not correct anymore, because it appears she’s had too much filler injected into her lips and cheeks.”
Danielle is also featured in this week’s ‘What I Ate Today’ column in OK! magazine. Her diet seems slightly less restrictive than Kelly Bensimon’s700 calorie a daystarvation diet.
Below is a sample of what Danielle eats during a normal day:
Breakfast: a bagel Snack: almonds and a Venti white chocolate peppermint mocha Lunch: grilled chicken wrap Dinner: grilled chicken salad with snow peas and mandarin oranges
