The 38-year-old mother of four declares she likes her “body better now!” since having her children. Teresa also credits her breast implants for helping her feel confident in a bikini. “I just got them done last summer, so this is my first time wearing a bikini and I have to say, this is the happiest I have ever been with my body. I feel like I have the whole package!”
Teresa, who’s been married to hubby Joe Giudice for 10 years explains how a “healthy Italian diet,” gym workouts and running after her kids has helped her get into tip-top shape for the summer.
You look amazing! How much do you weigh now?
Well, I hardly ever weigh myself, but I do fit back into most of the clothes I wore before I had Audriana. I think I’m a 27 jean size and size 4 in dresses.
Did you diet to lose the baby weight so fast?
No! I’m never on a diet. I always eat what I want. When I was pregnant, I had to eat anything that was in front of my face. It’s an Italian thing — they say if you see something and don’t eat it, your baby will get a birthmark!
What part of your body do you like the most?
I love my new boobies, but if I had to pick between an ass or boobs, I’d have to say my ass is more important to me. I’m proud of my bubble butt!

In other housewives news, a new episode of Bethenny’s Getting Married? (really hate dislike that darn question mark) is airing tonight. In a different kind of March madness, Bethenny Frankel tries to get some planning done but it’s hard when she competes with March Madness for Jason’s attention. A preview clip is below.
Reality show bitch villain Omarosais dishing about her life in a new interview with Vibe.
The 36-year-old star of her dating show, The Ultimate Merger, opens up about her past marriage, her calling to be a minister and also discusses her infamous feud with Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of NYC.
And despite being photographed at various events with actor Michael Clarke Duncan, Omarosa claims she is still dating the winner of her show.
Excerpts from her interview below -
In all your press over the years nobody ever mentioned that you’re Nigerian. What does your name mean?
My full name is Omorosaonee; it’s a Yoruba name that means, ‘my beautiful child desired.’ My father’s family is Nigerian my mother is American. I do recognize where I’m from and my lineage. I mean you look at my cheekbones, you look at my fierce fighting spirit and attitude—you know exactly where I’m from. I went to Nigeria three years ago and did a whole press tour there for about three weeks and helped to launch an ApprenticeAfrica. It was pretty exciting.
When we first met you on Season 1 of The Apprentice you wanted to work for Donald Trump, when did you discover you wanted to be a minister?
I got my calling two years ago, I didn’t respond to my call immediately but that’s when I got it. I absolutely want to be a minister. I’ve been doing missionary work around the world for the last five years; work in Haiti and for the homeless. Wherever God calls me, wherever he leads me that is where I’ll go, and if he eventually leads me to a church that’s where I’ll be.
The Ultimate Merger was completed last year, which means you’ve already shot the reunion special and found your man. I know you can’t reveal the ending but are you really saying you’ve married someone from the show?
That was my intention to find love. I went all the way in, one hundred percent [with this show.] The hardest part is not being able to be seen [in public] with the person that you ultimately chose. It’s been seven months since we’ve finished the show and we’ve [my new guy and I] have had to do some sneaking and creeping around because we can’t disclose who the winner is. So that’s been interesting.
So what would say went wrong with your first marriage?
My ex-husband and I married very young. I was 22; about to turn 23, he was in his early twenties. We were college sweethearts at Howard University and we had no clue what it took to make a marriage work. A benefit of recognizing that early enough was that we could decide amicably to go our separate ways. And we still have a good relationship.
You called Bethenny Frankel (from Bethenny’s Getting Married? and Real Housewives of New York) a “twit” recently. How did that all come about?
Bethenny Frankel was on The View and she was actually being complimented by Sherri Shepherd who said, ‘Bethenny you were on the Martha Stewart Apprentice and now you’ve got your own show and you’re doing your own thing. You’re utilizing this opportunity like Omarosa.’ And then Bethany says, ‘I’m not like Omarosa, she’s just famous for being infamous, she doesn’t have a real career I have a real career.’ It was really crazy stuff because Bethenny was a friend. She called after Martha Stewart Apprentice and asked me, ‘What can I do to extend my fifteen minutes of fame?’ Martha Stewart Apprentice had like two viewers, and The Apprentice had 28 million viewers— so who has the real career? Don’t get me started. That arrogance and the idea that [Bethenny thinks she has] this superiority [over me], it just baffles me, really baffles me. I mean this girl was a cocktail waitress five years ago; I worked in The White House. I mean really, who has the real career?

Vienna Girardi made headlines yesterday when she told Star Magazine she would be posing for Playboy later this year and expected to receive a payment in the range of $250, 000.
There’s only one problem with Vienna’s declaration – Playboy has yet to make her an offer! A rep for the magazine told UsWeekly, “This is the first we’ve heard of Vienna Girardi appearing on the cover of Playboy.”
The rep added, “We are not in negotiations with her and have not made her an offer.” Perhaps Vienna is trying to ‘secret’ the playboy shoot into existence.
In others news, the mudslinging in this Bachelorbreak up soap opera refuses to end. The latest is those pesky Jake Pavelka is gay rumors that simply refuses to go away.
First Vienna insinuated her ex-fiance might be gay when she told Star magazine he refused to have sex with her for four months. Someone close to Vienna then told RadarOnline that Vienna told them, “I don’t think Jake is into girls.” A good friend of Jake’s however denied the claims, telling RadarOnline that Jake is not gay.
The next person adding fuel to the gay rumor fire is none other than Jake’s ex-girlfriend Tanya Douglas who Jake dated from 2008 to 2009.
Tanya says she believes Vienna’s claims 100 percent. “He told me that he had to abstain from sex for religious purposes until we were married, which is exactly what he told Vienna. It was so weird, because we had already been intimate! It’s bizarre to change overnight like that.”
And when Tanya’s flat out asked if Jake is gay, she gives the following reply: “I always wondered if he could be,” she admits to Star. “There were a lot of signs. … Jake would get really giddy [with one particular male friend] and the two of them were very touchy-feely.”
Tanya also claims Jake once told his mom he needed to see a psychiatrist because he was “confused.”
It doesn’t end yet folks as Star magazine also speculates that Jake may have had a fling with Bachelor Pad contestant Juan Barbieri. Though Juan, 37, denies the story, sources tell the mag he and Jake were seen at West Hollywood gay club Micky’s in mid-2009 acting like a couple.

CBS has now unveiled the cast of the best reality show ever hit reality show Big Brother. The 13 houseguests that will be taking part in the 12th season of what CBS is dubbing the “Summer of Sabotage,” include a model, a bartender, and a chemistry graduate student who is also a VIP cocktail waitress.
But what everyone wants to know is what is the big twist this season? Well according to executive producer Allison Grodner, a mole has been planted among the houseguests to do the viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during this season which debuts July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
The mole, who will be revealed to viewers during the July 15 episode, is being called the Saboteur and isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.
“For the first time ever, we have someone in the house who, in a way, is playing their own game,” said Grodner, who stressed that the operative is not an actor but a real person who was picked alongside everyone else. “They’re playing for a cash prize, if they make it a certain amount of time in the house. If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.”
The Saboteur is similar to season 8’s introduction of “America’s Player,” which allowed one contestant, Eric Stein, to complete viewer-voted tasks for cash, unbeknownst to his house mates. The main difference this time however is that the cast will be made aware of the saboteur’s existence beforehand.
According to the NYPost, Jill appeared on The Cooper Lawrence Show last night and pretended to be discussed having second thoughts about coming back for a fourth season of the hit show.
“I don’t think I could handle it again. It hurt me terrible,” Jill said. “There are compelling reasons for me not to come back and there are compelling reasons for me to come back — I feel I was totally misrepresented. And the risk is that if I come back, it could happen again.”
Bravo has yet to ask any of the housewives back for the 4th season. Jill also shared she wants to renew herself ala Ramona. “You know what I want, I want to go on a spiritual journey,” added Jill.
In other NYC news, Kelly Bensimon, who is proving to be the biggest famewhore of them all, reportedly paid someone to be has a new man in her life. Photo agency BuzzFoto took the above pic of Kelly with what they are calling her mystery date.
And when she’s not busy being photographed randomly out on a date, strolling the beach, or working out, Kelly makes time to go running in the streets of NYC. Dlisted posted some photos of Kelly as she ran the streets of Manhattan on Monday afternoon. Also pictured running with Kelly looks to be her new mystery man.

The Real World: Back To New Orleans is set to premiere tonight June 30th at 10 p.m. eastern. The new season features eight new cast members and promises to bring the drama, romance, and drinking that the Real World fans have grown accustomed to.

The premiere episode opens up with the roommates in the middle of The French Quarter, where they quickly find out first impressions are not always what they seem,” reveals the press release.
And though the new season has yet to premiere, the cast made headlines back in March when cops were called to the house by cast member Ryan Leslie, who complained that his housemate, Preston Roberson-Charles, with whom he had an argument three weeks earlier, urinated on his toothbrush, and used it to scrub in the inside of a toilet bowl, causing a subsequent sore throat and fever experienced that required Leslie to go to the hospital on February 21, where he was treated for a viral infection.
According to Ryan, Preston previously called him a gay slur and threatened to take some action against his belongings. Ryan learned that Preston had soiled his toothbrush only after he had been using it for two weeks.
The first Real World New Orleans debuted 10 years ago.

A lot of news to report in the spectacle that has become of the Bachelor break up.
The latest is now news that Vienna Girardi will be posing for Playboy. This comes straight from the horse’s mouth as the 24-year-old former Hooters waitress confirmed the news to Star Magazine exclusively.
“I am going to be on the cover of Playboy later this year,” Vienna tells Star in the July 12 issue. And when it comes to Vienna’s reason from stripping down, it seems she was solely motivated by finances.
“The Bachelor didn’t pay me a dime, and I ran through my savings living with Jake,” Vienna says of her decision to pose for Playboy — a deal she hopes will net her $250,000. “I need the money. And I want to do something fun and happy for myself!”
Oddly enough, ABC released a press release this week giving the press a sneak peek at the highly volatile reunion showdown between Vienna and her ex-fiance Jake Pavelka. During the show, set to air July 5th on ABC, the pot Vienna calls the kettle Jake ‘a liar’ and ‘a fame whore’.”
Jake on the other hand feels “Vienna always undermines him and tears him down. They face off about who broke up with whom. Vienna defends herself against allegations of infidelity,” teases the press release.
And finally TMZ has uncovered some more scandalous photos of Vienna. These photos were taken in March 2009 in the Bahamas, just a few months before Vienna met Jake.
The photos show Vienna getting down and very dirty with a stranger during a spring break dance contest.
