The latest in Jon’s long list of bizarro behavior is the new tattoo the father of eight got this weekend. RadarOnline reports Jon, 33, got a new manager, a life coach and a new dragon tattoo on his back to signify a new beginning.
The ex-husband of Kate Gosselin tells Radar, “I have planned this tattoo for years now.” Jon adds, “I wanted something that resembled a rebirth or a change in me.”
And why the huge dragon? According to the genius known as Jon, he picked the Korean dragon because it’s a symbol of rebirth and the circle of life.
“The dragon is all encompassing. It has all parts of the zodiac,” Jon tells Radar.
If there’s one thing we have all grown accustomed to when it comes to Bravo housewives, it is their penchant fondness for the good life and excessive, borderline obnoxious, bragging of their “lavish lifestyles.”
For example, did you know three civil suits were filed against Danielle Staub and her ex-husband Thomas Staub, including federal and state tax liens? Yeah, neither did we. This might explain why a 47-year-old mother of two would make a sex tape and sell it to the highest bidder. All allegedly of course.
Below is more information about each housewife’s financial history -
Caroline Manzo – Caroline’s husband Albert Manzo has been involved in over 30 judgments and liens (one brought on by a family member) since the early ’90s up until two years ago . Throughout the ’90s and into 2000, there were several judgments against Caroline for nonpayment of hospital and doctors’ bills, as well another judgment involving “Church Chronicle Publishing.”
A state tax lien for $10,546.17 was filed against Albert Manzo in 2000.
A judgment in favor of the Federal Mortgage Association for $148,000 also against Al.
A few judgments in favor of the First Bank of USA and North Jersey Federal Credit for a combined total of over $10,000.
Dina Manzo – Jezebel reports out of all the housewives, Dina is the only one who has a clean slate when it comes to her financial history. Her husband, Tommy Manzo, is however a different story. Dina married Tommy (the brother of Caroline’s husband) in 2006 in a lavish wedding that reportedly cost $1.5 million. The wedding was featured on VH1’s My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding. You can watch that here.
Tommy was sued by American Express for $12,599 in 2007
He was also sued by the Bank of America for an undisclosed amount.
Jacqueline Laurita- Similar to Dina, Jacqueline also seems to have a clean financial slate. However as we reported this week, the company of Jacqueline’s husband, Chris Laurita, filed for bankrupty last year. The company, Signature Apparel Group LLC, was behind the Rocawear and Eve’s Fetish clothing brands. The financial issues found on the Lauritas were for the years 1988 and 1990.
United Jersey bank successfully won a judgment against Chris for over $18,000 in 1988.
American Express also successfully won a judgment against Chris for almost $3000 in 1990.
In a new interview with Ryan Seacrest for E! News, the 27-year-old boyfriend of Kourtney Kardashian admits he’s struggled with anger management, alcohol, and other issues.
“I had to take a look at where my life is going, or where it was gonna go if I kept acting the way I was,” said Scott. “I never ever wanted to admit that I may have a problem.”
And what kind of problems would that be? “I got lots. I got it all,” Scott added. “There comes a point where you can’t keep living like that.” Scott also shared he regrets “the things that I’ve done to Kourtney; [I’ve] treated her poorly.”
“I hope to God I can look to those [mistakes] like blessings in disguise and be able to learn from them, and proceed with a better, healthier life for the both of us — especially now because of Mason,” added the new dad.
In other news, tonight brings us a new episode of Kourtney and Khloe Take Miami. What’s coming tonight? Well more Kourtney and Scott drama of course.
In the preview clip below, you can see Kourtney as she lashes out at Scott after learning he went clubbing with her Dash boutique employees.
TELL US – WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE NEW SEASON OF KKTM? AND OF TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
The 48-year-old shared with PEOPLE magazine that she has lost an impressive 20 lbs on her 5’1″ frame. And what’s her secret? “Just portion control. I eat what I want. I just eat the bad things earlier on in the day,” said Caroline. For example, “If I want pasta, I have it for lunch instead of for dinner. That’s all. If I want a piece of cheesecake, I have half instead of a whole.”
Along with a healthy diet, Caroline also credits her weight loss to regular exercise, by doing “a lot of treadmill” and drinking “a lot of water.
Caroline spends about 45 minutes to an hour working out at least three times a week. “I try to do it every day. And as the day progresses, I eat lighter and lighter,” she says of her routine. “And I stopped drinking soda and juice … [I drink] just one coffee a day and buckets and buckets and buckets of water.”
Caroline shares she began her new regimen back in March, and says the weight came off slowly. “I think that’s healthy,” she says. “That’s the way to do it, so it’s not like yo-yo dieting.”
When it comes to how she feels today, the mother of three reveals she feels “so much better” since losing the weight. “I love it … I always felt uncomfortable in my clothes. But now I’m good.”
The latest is that the former Bachelorcouple sat together Wednesday night as ABC decided to have them do a joint interview to further exploit discuss their break up. The interview, set to air July 5th, reportedly ended in Jake being very angry and even walking off.
“Sources” told TMZ that while discussing their breakup during the taping, Jake lost his temper and even reportedly cocked his arm and made a fist in Vienna’s direction. A source close to Vienna claims Jake “has a really bad hidden temper. He snaps all the time, it was just the first time he did it in front of people.”
The interview then reportedly ended abruptly with Jake walking off. Another “source” however disputes the claims, telling TMZ Vienna was interrupting Jake constantly during the taping … “Chris Harrison had to tell her over and over again to let him talk.”
RadarOnline is also reporting that Vienna told a friend she didn’t think Jake was into girls, you know considering the whole he wouldn’t have sex with her for four months, and would only show her affection in front of the cameras dilemma.
Jake himself A childhood friend of Jake’s is however shutting down the gay rumors telling Radar “he’s most certainly not gay.”
The Hollywoodlife gives a more detailed summary of what Vienna had to say about Jake in her startling Star magazine interview -
Jake wouldn’t be intimate with her: He made excuses, like he was doing a “religious fast,” “he didn’t feel like it,” “he wanted to wait for marriage,” Vienna says. Lastly, Jake blamed it on their constant fighting turning him off.
Jake screwed up Valentine’s day: “I set up rose petals, had a bubble bath running and got into the bath,” Vienna says. “And Jake never came in — he told me that he just didn’t feel like it that night!”
Jake wouldn’t cuddle or hold her: “When you wake up in the morning, I want you to kiss me and say good morning,” Vienna said to Jake. “He’d do that for a few days but then go back to like it was before.”
Jakes stopped saying “I love you!” “We haven’t said ‘I love you’ for a couple of days,” Vienna says. “I’m the one who always says it, every phone call.”
Jake was more focused on his career than his marriage: “Every second we’re together, it’s always business with Jake,” Vienna explains. “He went on auditions while I sat in the apartment doing nothing.”
Jake lied about his career ambitions: “I thought he was a pilot,” Vienna says. “He really wants to be an actor. This wasn’t supposed to be our life.”
Jake moved Vienna to an unfamiliar place: “He moved me out to LA,” she said. “I didn’t know anyone there!”
Jake never talked about wedding plans, EVER: “The whole story I said about finding Jimmy Choos for the wedding … was all a lie,” Vienna admits. “Whenever I’d bring up the wedding to Jake, he’d just blow me off or ignore me.”
Jake killed Vienna’s self-confidence: “Jake has made me hate myself,” she says. “Being with someone who won’t be intimate with me, who is constantly fighting with me, has totally taken away all my self-esteem!”
Who could have ever imagined this Bachelor breakup would end with so much mudslinging? The “anticipated” joint interview with Jake and Vienna will air July 5th on ABC during an episode of the Bachelorette.
According to RadarOnline, Kelly was photographed wandering down the beach of the exclusive New York beach resort on Wednesday while in the Hamptons.
Joining Kelly in the photo-op is her new dog, which is said to be a young black lab. Perhaps this is some sort of media strategy to distract fans from her nutty behavior on the show, you know considering the anti bullying rants and PSA video failed to work.
The boring lost footage episode of the NYC Housewives also aired last night, but we were lucky enough to get a few great moments from the one and only Kelly. The best part of the show was probably when Kelly said the following to Alex McCord regarding her anxiety over going on the St John trip. “Everyone is unpredictable, and I’m so normal,” said Kelly.
Another interesting part of the show was when Kelly decided to pay Sonja Morgan a visit as Sonja recovered from her liposuction surgery. This visit was after the St. John trip, which left me wondering why Kelly would go visit her “bully” and even go bearing gifts? Things that make you wonder.
Oh well, below are more freakishodd bikini photos of Kelly Bensimon taken this week, as well as some others from earlier this year.
Multiple media outlets are reporting DJ Pauly D has several sex tapes floating around. Popcrunch reports the amateur tapes are said to be with a Canadian model he met this year while doing promotion for the first season of the MTV hit show.
“It is being revealed that they filmed a few sex videos while together – Our insiders say the girl in question has no intent on selling the recordings… But we all know eventually they will come out!!,” adds the ZackTaylor blog.
The magazine cover photo, which hit stands this week under the banner “Queer Issue” and above the headline “The Guido Ideal” — a story about “gay Jersey guidos on the down-low,” has led to some whispers and questions about the guys’ sexuality, but not so fast reports the NYPost.
The Post is reporting the guys were not aware what they were posing for and had no idea they were being photographed for the Queer cover. A source from the mag also adds, “The paper’s not saying the cover boys are gay, just that that they’re hot.”
The guys however seem to be good sports about the cover and The Situation was even quoted in the past as saying: “I’ll be honest, I like the attention [from gay men]. I’m flattered if there are guys with different preferences that have crushes on me.”
We learn tonight about Bethenny’s first marriage, as she opens up about her divorce. It all starts when her wedding planner hunts her down in a hair salon. A still pregnant and hormonal Bethenny doesn’t seem too comfortable when the discussion turns to her previous relationships or the fact that she needs to find her divorce papers in order to get married again.
The new episode airs tonight at 10:00pm Eastern on Bravo.
“We haven’t been asked back yet. Let’s see if the show is renewed for another season and then we’ll see,” said the Countess to PEOPLE magazine. “I’m going to cross that bridge when I get to it.” Right Countess. Going to go out on a limb here and predict there’s a 100% chance LuAnn will be back for more.
LuAnn, pictured above with boyfriend Jacques Azoulay at last night’s premiere of ‘Grown Ups,’ also shares that she doesn’t have a problem with anyone on the show. And when it comes to Bethenny’s spin off, LuAnn says she is a fan. “I’ve seen it,” she said. “I think it’s great.”
Since we’re on the topic of the NYC Housewives, despite the fact that Jill Zarin has mentioned several times that she cannot understand the words that are coming out of Kelly Bensimon’s mouth, it seems the two have still managed to strike a great friendship despite the language and IQ barrier. Kelly twitted the above pic of her and her new BFF on Tuesday with the caption: “I loved lunch at World pie. I admire our friendship so much.”
Kelly then tweeted to Jill the next day, “tks for coming to watch me ride. I was proud.”
Kelly also had an interesting tweet for the website Gather which wrote a brief article about her lunch with Jill. She tweeted, “i love gather.com they wrote about @jillzarin and i having lunch. i wish they’d write about SAFE SEX and the work of AIDS Service center.”
Good to see things are still the same in Kelly lala cartwheel land. The lost episode of the NYC Housewives show airs tonight on Bravo.
