The stars of TLC’s Jon and Kate Plus 8, Jon and Kate Gosselin continue to spend time apart as a couple.
TMZ obtained the following photo on the bottom left showing Jon with 2 women, drinking a bottle of beer. This photo seems to be in poor taste as a lot of cheating allegations have been leveled against him lately.
Could it be that Jon simply doesn’t care anymore? There are lots of rumors that their marriage is all but over. The photo of Jon was taken on Monday, the same day the new season of their show premiered to 10 million veiwers.
Kate was also photographed with the kids sans Jon, getting off a ferry on Bald Head Island, NC, Wednesday morning.
Update – The women picture above with Jon are family friends according to him. “The two women with whom I’ve been photographed are family friends – Lauren Glassman andLauren’s daughter, Hailey,” he tells PEOPLE. “Lauren’s husband, Dr. Larry Glassman, performed Kate’s tummy tuck surgery, and since the surgery we’ve become friendly with the Glassmans.”
A lot of information has come out recently about NJ Housewives’ Danielle Staub. People gave a great summary of all allegations about Danielle from the book, Cop Without A Badge. The above mugshot also came from the book. All of the information below comes directly from this book. The story is told by Kevin Maher, an ex criminal who also happens to be Danielle’s ex.
1) The book reveals Danielle, 46, as a woman named Beverly Merrill, a one-time stripper with a criminal past.
2) Felon-turned-FBI informant named, Kevin Maher, says he met Danielle at a drug party in Miami in the ’80s.
3) Their meeting came after she was released on $10,000 bail following an arrest on charges that she was involved in the kidnapping of a man who owed her drug dealer friend money.
4) This led to Danielle and her dealer friend being caught by police and charged with extortion, kidnapping and possession after they failed to collect a ransom from their victim’s father.
5) Kevin Maher used his police connections to help get Danielle get a deal. She pleaded guilty only to the charge of extortion and was sentenced to five years probation.
6) Kevin and Danielle would go on to date and get married. The two would wound up separating as Kevin was still married to another woman, and did not like the fact that Danielle was still stripping.
7) Danielle’s real name is Beverly Merrill, but she went by the name Danielle when stripping. I’m guessing she later decided her stripper name was best once this book came out.
The book also exposes more secrets about Danielle’s aversion to wearing underwear, her drug use and sleeping with more than 1,000 men.
The book also includes more sensational reports about Merrill’s aversion to wearing underwear, her drug use and sleeping with more than 1,000 men.
Sighs, what are my thoughts on Danielle? I think Bethenny Frankel summed it up best when she blogged, “Danielle is the fascinating character with her many levels. She seems desperate and tragic, yet she is really upfront and honest which lessens the desire to loathe her.”
While the new season of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County is scheduled to begin filming next week, one familiar housewife that won’t be returning is original cast member, Jeana Keough. The decision to not have Jeana return seemed to be that of Bravo, and not Jeana.
Tamra Barney gave an interview earlier this week to Radaronline teasing that one of the original housewives would not be returning. While Tamra did not confirm who it was, TheDirty website did confirm yesterday that Jeana Keough is the one leaving.
Tamra also says there might be a new housewife or two added to the show. I can’t help but get the feeling the show will be a-okay as long as Gretchen is still on there, and Tamra continues her pathetic mission to “expose her.” I will however miss Jeana on the show, she was a likable character. No word yet on if Lynn will be returning, does the show really need her?
Tell Us: What do you think of Bravo’s decision not to bring Jeana back?
Jon & Kate Plus 8‘s new season premiered on TLC this week, making it the most watched reality show episode of all time on TLC. Almost 10 million viewers tuned in to watch the couple discuss their martial problems. Us Weekly had reported Jon had an affair with a 23-year-old teacher, and Kate is “inseparable” from her bodyguard.
The ratings were excellent in comparison to the season finale of Lost which attracted less viewers, at 9.2 million. The premiere doubled the Season 4 finale of Jon & Kate, which had 4.6 million viewers.
On Monday’s show, both Jon and Kate who have been married for nearly 10 years, admitted they weren’t sure about their future.
“I don’t know…parents of multiples have, like, triple the divorce rate, and I was thinking we were gonna beat that. I don’t know if I can say that anymore,” Kate said on camera.
It seems to me that the couple needs some sort of family counseling away from the spotlight, and time to work on their marriage.

We have finally gotten our hands of the infamous mugshot of Danielle Staub. This comes directly from the book, Cop Without A Badge. Also shown below are 2 pages containing Danielle aka Beverly Merrill’s story.
The Cop Without A Badge book is suppose to be an autobiographical tale of Kevin Maher, a former criminal turned Cop informant.
The gist of the story is that the main character in the book, Kevin, encounters Danielle and takes interest in her. Only to find out she is a stripper with a recent arrest and run in with the law. The run in with the law includes assisting a drug dealer in kidnapping and extortion. All of this allegedly took place in 1986. Interesting.
Kevin would go on to help Danielle get a good plea deal with the FBI. The two ended up dating on and off for 5 years eventually ending things in 1990. During this period Danielle and Kevin got married, but the marriage wasn’t exactly legal as Kevin was still married at the time. Kevin went on to state he last saw Danielle stripping in 1992.
The star of the Real Housewives of New York City star, Bethenny Frankel, is never one to shy away from showing off some skin. And can you blame her? She does have a great body.
She however seemed to be a little to open with showing off as TMZ posted the below photo of her on their site. The photo was taken recently during a signing for her new book, Naturally Thin. Not really sure what was going on in this photo, or why it was taken, but it definitely screams out trashy classy.
Last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of NJ as a pretty good one, but it is the previews for next week’s episode that has everyone buzzing. As it promises to reveal secrets about Danielle Staub’s past.
The accusations being thrown out about Danielle include her being an ex stripper, being involved in kidnapping and the Colombian cartel. While the accusations were being leveled against her, the above book – Cop Without A Badge, was shown, as it was discussed that Danielle was in the book along with her mugshot. (The above pic is a picture of Danielle from 2000 by the way).
I have searched everywhere and this mugshot has yet to hit the Internet. I will be sure to post it here the minute I find it. The above book also only seems to be available on amazon.com. The book is about an ex criminal turned cop informant. A man name Kevin Maher is the subject of the book.
So how does Danielle tie into all this? Well it is rumored that Kevin Maher is Danielle’s brother, and that Danielle’s maiden name is Maher. So the guess is Kevin, while talking about his life of crime might have implicated his sister, Danielle, as well.
Star Magazine’s latest issue is also reporting that Danielle was arrested last night for allegedly not paying her attorneys. Supposedly, she has been unable to pay off her lawyers due to the face that her ex husband, a manufacturer of exercise equipment, has yet to pay her divorce settlement. The lawyer fees are said to be in six figures so it’s safe to say her settlement money could be in the millions. There is also suppose to be a mugshot from this incident but the cops have yet to release it.
We will continue to get more updates and details on this story. Perhaps people with too many closet skeletons should avoid reality shows. Just a thought Danielle.
