While we continue to be in awe at the amazing classic masterpiece video created for Countess LuAnn’s song “Money Can’t Buy You Class,” comes news that a new housewife is ready to give her some competition!
According to PEOPLE, Danielle Staub of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has decided to embark on a singing career. Her genre of choice? Pop music. Danielle is not wasting any time and has in fact recorded a duet called “Real Close” with singer Lori Michaels, who wrote the track.
“It’s a song about having commitment issues — one person is leaving, the other person is staying,” Danielle tells PEOPLE. “It’s called ‘Real Close’ because you want to pull the person closer.” Danielle also shares there will be five versions of the song, which will all be released in eight weeks.
But the question everyone wants to know is can she sing? “I sang in an R&B band when I was a young teen,” says Danielle. “It’s been a long time since I exercised [my musical chops] but when I was sitting down going over Lori’s music, this song grabbed me.”
And when it comes to her fellow NJ housewives, Danielle reveals she doesn’t “care what they think,” of her move to become a singer. “I don’t have a relationship with them.”
Jon Gosselin was photographed introducing his 23-year-old girlfriend to his kids just two weeks ago, and according to a new report, Ellen Ross was not that eager to meet them.
The latest issue of Us Weekly reports Ellen, who has been dating the Jon & Kate Plus 8 dad since mid-April is simply using Jon to “be famous” and that “she hates kids.” Another source reveals it was Ellen who “pushed Jon to finally meet his kids because she knew it would get her attention.” A source close to Jon however denies Ellen is using him for fame.
And as for how Jon’s ex-wife Kate Gosselin is dealing with all this? An insider tells US Kate, 35, “was heartbroken to see a stranger hugging her kids.”
Kate’s heartbreak will however likely be short lived as her new show, Kate Plus 8, premieres on TLC this Sunday, June 6.
Tonight is the finale and here’s what we can expect. As Ramona prepares for the special day of her wedding renewal, she gets a last minute visit from Jill, who wants to re-hash all that went down during her surprise visit in St. John. And while Bethenny Frankel prepares for her new life by moving downtown with her fiancé Jason, she must face her past when she and Jill finally meet for lunch to discuss their broken friendship. A video preview is below.
We also reported this week that a “source” told Life&Style magazine that Jill and Bethenny are working to mending their friendship. Well according to Ramona, the story is false and Bethenny and Jill “are not friends again.”
As for the anticipated reunion, Ramona reveals it “got hectic” and that “Two people walked off. One person got up and stomped her foot!” And when it comes to Kelly’s mental well being since the her infamous breakdown in St John, Ramona says Kelly “is absolutely not” doing better. “She goes in and out,” says Ramona.
And since we’re on the topic of Kelly Bensimon, who continues to take a downward spiral into crazyville, especially after releasing her home-made anti-bullying PSA video (screen shot above). Must say using an important issue such as bullying to selfishly serve her own agenda is a bit disgusting. Even more disgusting considering this woman was arrested just a year ago for punching her boyfriend in the face. Seems like Kelly knows a lot about bullying.
In a new interview with Access Hollywood, the 42-year-old moron mother of two, is now claiming Bravo forced her to go on the St. John trip. “I was asked by Bravo to go, I didn’t want to go,” she told AH on Wednesday. “These women are not for me. Clearly, Ramona does not like me …I went against my will and the minute I got there, it was everything I hate.”
“They’re playing a game. We’re playing two different games. I’m playing basketball and they’re playing hockey,” continued Kelly. “And they want blood.”
In other housewives news, Jill Zarin did a new interview with TV Guide, and she is now blaming Alex McCord for being turned away in St. John. Below are excepts from Jill’s interview -
“I think had Alex not cared whether I stayed or left, I could have gotten past it. But for whatever influence Alex has over Ramona right now worked… Alex wants to make herself more important on the show, and I totally respect that. And this was her way of doing it. This was her way of creating a place for herself to stay on the show. Without the drama of what she’s been doing, she really doesn’t have a place on the show. In the finale, you’ll see there’s a moment with Alex where she wants to talk to me. I just remove myself from it. I have nothing against her, I’m just not going to give her another shot at me since her history with me is to attack me unprovoked. I’ve done nothing to her. In the first two seasons I was the only one who supported her, and now all of a sudden she found this voice and wants to attack me.”
So according to delusional Jill, Alex is controlling Ramona, and that was the reason she got kicked off crazy Island. Delusional Jill also can’t fathom why Alex could possibly dislike her, despite the fact that she has spent the past two seasons of the show constantly taking digs at Alex and her family.
The preview clip of Bethenny and Jill’s meet up is below –
TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE NYC HOUSEWIVES?
So what’s an attention whore to do when she just “split” from her controlling husband? Well if you’re Heidi Montag, you immediately strike up a deal to appear on a new reality show about your newly “single” life, and then quickly call up the paparazzi and attempt to make sad faces with your frozen face. The above photo of Heidi was taken Tuesday, June 1st.
UsWeekly and RadarOnline are now confirming today what we all suspected, that the supposed split between Heidi and her hubby Spencer Prattwas 100% a publicity stunt.
According to RadarOnline, the two famewhores were seen smiling and laughing yesterday at Heidi’s beach house. UsWeekly also confirms “Heidi and Spencer are laughing over [the fake split] and having a blast.”
Heidi’s big sister, Holly Montag, 26, even twittered that the couple are “liars.”
A source reveals the two are in publicity seeking mode since the Hills is about to end, and Spencer is no longer on the show. “This breakup is the latest part of Spencer’s master plan,” reveals an insider.
It’s interesting to watch these two continue to self destruct in their quest for fame. There’s a very good chance this will not end well for either of these two. They seem to have no bounds or know no limits when it comes to their actions.
According to theybf.com, Greg borrowed some money from one of the radio show hosts Corey King. The money helped Greg take he and Nene’s house out of foreclosure. Greg however began avoiding Corey when he couldn’t pay him back. This led to Corey calling Greg and secretly taping their convo out of revenge. The coversation was then leaked online yesterday.
In the phone conversation, Greg shares that he plans on divorcing Nene and that the Atlanta Housewives fame has gone to her head. “I put $300,000 of my own money for [NeNe] to become a housewife. Without that, she wouldn’t be sh*t . . . She’s going to give me every dime of my $300,000 back,” said an angry Greg.
It seems Greg also intends to get spousal support from Nene, who is now the breadwinner of the family, thanks to her Bravo income.
Greg also phoned in to Kandi Burruss’s internet radio show yesterday night, and admitted it was him on the tape. Theybf sources share that Nene heard the conversation yesterday and was livid. She’s apparently planning on beating Greg to the divorce filing.
This third season of Real Housewives of New York City is proving to be the hottest ever! And just how hot you might ask? Well the NYC Housewives are gracing this week’s cover of UsWeekly magazine as you can see above. Apparently crazy drama sells!
The ladies are talking and victimJill Zarin, 46, tells the mag she still has yet to get over the chilly reception she received when she decided to surprise Ramona Singer, Alex McCord and Bethenny Frankel on vacation in St. John.
Jill apparently cried so much, to the point that she doesn’t even recall how many days she cried for. “It was such a Mean Girls moment that I literally cried for like two or three days,” she tellsUs. “They didn’t offer me a glass of water or a bathroom! We had just traveled nine hours, and they knew it. I had to pee! You have no idea what a schlep it was. Schlep doesn’t even describe it!”
Jill revealed on the show that she flew via a private jet. Apparently her private jet did not have bathrooms. And in case you’re wondering, the plane ride from New York to St. Thomas is 3.5 hours. Visitors then take a boat ride or ferry ride to reach St. John. The boat ride is 45 minutes, and the ferry is 25. For some reason the trip took Jill nine hours, and for some reason, she couldn’t pee on her private jet or at the St. Thomas airport. And surely Ramona and the other ladies would have said no had she asked to use the restroom. “It was the most hurtful thing that’s ever happened to me,” says Jill. Ah that crafty Jill! Trying to manipulate viewers and readers into giving her sympathy. You gotta love her, she just doesn’t quit!
As for Ramona‘s response to Jill’s teary story? She tweeted yesterday, “Crocodile tears.”
Regarding the new UsWeekly cover., Kelly also tweeted this morning, “The usweekly cover and story is amazing! Love you usweekly.”
In other NYC news, the ladies are making so many headlines these days that it’s almost hard to keep with them, Bethenny Frankel did a new interview with Access Hollywood.
Bethenny, who has a new reality show – Bethenny’s Getting Married? – reveals she might be ready to leave the NYC Housewives show after this roller coaster third season. “I tend to think it might be the end,” Bethenny recently toldAccess’ Billy Bush. “I just feel like it might be the end of the party and I don’t like to be at a party too long. Money wouldn’t be able to make up for a mistake like staying on a show too long. That wouldn’t be good. And I don’t know if it would be smart to stay on. And I don’t know if I want to stay on.”
Translation: “I’m waiting to see how well my reality show does. If it does well, I’m hightailing the Housewives asylum! And if not, I’ll be back for another season of insanity.”
And as for the reunion? “There were crazy outbursts. It was a great, great reunion,” Bethenny explained. “[But,] I wanted to get home to the baby. And I just had given birth two weeks ago and I just felt like I was in a really different place. And a lot of this didn’t feel all that important to me at that point.”
Bethenny also revealed she plans to try for baby number two. “I’ll probably have two, probably,” she told Billy. “There’s probably, I would say, a 73 percent chance I’ll have another baby and it will be with in the next two years.”
Also in the new UsWeekly issue, Bethenny poses in a size 4 swimsuit just 3 weeks after having her baby. Bethenny, who is said to be 122 pounds reveals she’s already lost 29 of the 35 pounds she gained while pregnant. The 38-year-old, who underwent a c-section, also shares that she still manages to do easy exercises while still healing. The swimsuit photo of Bethenny is below.
