We reported last month that Jeana was not coming back. She later confirmed this news in a local interview. We are not sure what changed between then and now, but she is back on for the 5th season. Her interior decorator, Kelli Ellis, who was featured on the show last season, confirmed this news on her facebook saying -
“Kelli Ellis – Yes, it’s true our beloved Jeana Keough is back for Season 5 of Housewives!! Now we have a reason to watch Bravo!! 14 hours ago”
Good to have Jeana back on board. Now if only Tamra could be eliminated from the show altogether.. They were rumors swirling back then that she quit the show because her family didn’t like being filmed, or that Bravo did not invite her back.
There are now rumors that she might be back on the show because she needs the money, which we highly doubt. She however just listed her home for sale for the amount of $5.5 Mil.
Hollywood actor Lou Diamond Phillips was crowned the champion of I’m a Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! During Wednesday night’s lives finale broadcast on the NBC, co host Damien Fahey announced Phillips as “King of the Jungle”.
“This experience has proven to be so much greater than I expected it to be,” Phillips said in a video clip that aired before his triumph was revealed. “I expected it to be a competition. I expected it to be hard. What I did not expect was the emotional bonds that we’ve created, the foundation of relationships that will go on from here.”
The final three included retired NBA player John Salley , Former wrestler Torrie Wilson and of course Phillips. The winner was determined by viewers voting. Phillips made an impression on viewers and also fellow celebrity cast.
Salley was the first of the three remaining finalists to be eliminated from the finale based on the voting results of Tuesday night, leaving Phillips and Wilson to duke it out.
“The public has decided and voted and I can honestly tell you two that it was incredibly close. Incredibly close,” Fahey told the pair before revealing Wilson Phillips’ victory.
“Congratulations, you deserve it,” Wilson told Phillips as she immediately embraced him.
Other celebrities on the show were former American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar,former supermodel Janice Dickinson, Patti Blagojevich, the wife of indicted former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, Baldwin brother actors Stephen Baldwin, and Daniel Baldwin; “Frangela” comedy duo members Frances Callier and Angela V. Shelton, and The Hills stars Spencer Pratt, his new wife Heidi Montag and her older sister Holly Montag also competed on the show.
Rumors of an additional member-Jon’s former fling Deanna Hummel being featured on the TLC show “Jon & Kate plus 8” has been shot down by a TLC spokesperson.
The New York Daily News reports, “Deanna’s role isn’t expected to be big, but because she’s part of Jon’s life, she’ll be filmed,” an insider told the paper. The rep for the network informed Entertainment Tonight that there were no plans for such arrangements.
According to TLC president, Eileen O’Neill, the network will stop airing the show until Aug. 3 in light of the couple’s split so that viewers can adjust to the new circumstances. “It’s hard to walk away from a big number,” O’Neill said, referring to Monday’s record 10.6 million viewers. “Once we understood that they were going to make an announcement [regarding their split], we discussed various scenarios with them,” she said. “We really collaborated on what would make sense for the family.”
O’Neill doesn’t foresee the show being cancelled or postponed further than August. She is “very confident” in the August return date.
Regarding any changes on the show, TLC believes that the focus will remain on the parent-child relationship.
I think the most interesting part of Bravo’s Housewives series is actually what seems to happen once the camera stops rolling. That’s when the real drama begins.
As you can see from the above photo, The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast are on the cover of the new issue of Us Magazine. US promises to reveal their dirty secrets, but we pretty much know everything there is to know about this women.
The article talks about Jacqueline Laurita ending her friendship with the very toxic Danielle Staub. Jacqueline tells US, “I am not friends with Danielle.” But she doesn’t stop there, “She has never seen the baby, nor will I ever show her. I learned my family was right about her all along.” Ouch! One can’t help but wonder what Danielle might have said or did to have Jacqueline feeling this way. Maybe part 2 of the reunion will shed some light on this.
In other steamy news, Danielle went to court today to stop the release of the sex tape she made with 26 year old ex boyfriend, Stephen Zalewski. We reported last week that Stephen claimed to have sex tapes involving Danielle, and was threatening to sell them to the highest bidder.
Luckily for Danielle, the judge issuedan injunction banning the release of any sexually explicit video or pictures of her pending a hearing next month.
What 46 year old woman in her right mind makes a sex tape? Especially one with 2 young daughters? To make matters worse, below are photos of Danielle leaving a New Jersey courthouse today. Yes that’s her blowing kisses to the camera, and taking photos with her “fans.” This woman is the definition of pathological, sad, and delusional. She seems to want fame, no matter the cost. SAD.
Audrina Patridge is one step closer to having her reality show air on MTV. According to Entertainment Weekly, the Hills star’s new series is currently in development at MTV.
The new reality show is titled The Audrina Showand is being produced by Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice). The Audrina Show will focus on her personal and professional life. Umm what professional life?
Audrina’s final episodes of The Hills will begin airing in the fall and will also feature former Laguna Beach star Kristin Cavallari.
Next to Big Brother, Megan Wants a Millionaire is probably the next reality show I’m really looking forward to. VH1 has released photos of the men hoping to win Megan’s heart. Megan Hauserman had previously appeared on other reality shows such as The Beauty and The Geek, as well as Rock of Love 2, and I Love Money. Megan has mastered the art of playing the super villian, but the great thing about her is that she is very entertaining.
The premise of the show is that all the suitors are millionaires. The show is set to premier on August 2nd on VH1. Judging by the looks of this cast, it should be rather interesting.
VH1 seems to have found its niche with bringing it’s viewers dating reality shows. The latest reality ‘star” to get their own show is none other than Frank the Entertainer. Frank Maresca aka The Entertainer has previously appeared on other VH1 shows such as I Love New York, and I Love Money.

A brief bio telling us: 1) Who you are AND 2) Why you would be the perfect girl for THE ENTERTAINER.
Seems like Danielle Staub failed to come completely clean on her past during the finale of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Danielle only admitted to being arrested, changing her name, and being a past stripper. What she failed to admit was that she also used to be a prostitute/high paid escort.
The Gawker got their hands on the court documents involving Danielle’s 1986 arrest, and it definitely sheds more light on her past.
The documents revealed the following -
1) In 1986, Staub went by the name Beverly Merrill, but her working name as a high-end prostitute was “Angela Minelli.” She was living in Miami, and one of her clients was Daniel Claudio Aguilar, a cocaine dealer for the Medellín cartel.
2) Danielle wasn’t in the wrong place at the wrong time as she claimed. She was heavily involved with the kidnapping which came as a result of a cocaine deal gone wrong, which Danielle also had a big part in. Danielle’s job was to help test the cocaine that was being sold for $48,000.
3) During the kidnapping, Danielle helped make phone calls to the victim’s family demanding a ransom.
4) Danielle was picked up/arrested with six kilos of cocaine and $16,000 in cash.
5) After her arrest, Danielle turned on her boyfriend/kidnapper known as Aguilar, and helped in convicting him.
6) During the trial, Aguilar’s lawyers tried to undermine Danielle’s credibility by repeatedly pointing out that she was a prostitute who worked for an escort service and coke addict.
7) Danielle’s ex husband and author of the Book – Cop Without A Badge, Kevin Maher, has critized her for appearing on reality citing the fact that Aguilar might want to carry out his revenge on her. Aguilar was released from prison in 1994.
I guess being a past prostitute/escort isn’t something anyone would want to admit to, but why go on a reality show knowing you have all these skeletons in your closet? If you are going to come clean, you might as well come all the way clean.
In other news, the big rumor that refuses to go away is that Dina’s husband, Tommy Manzo, has left her and moved in with a younger girlfriend. Sources say Tommy is living with his girlfriend in an apartment close to the Brownstone where he works at. I guess time will tell whether or not Dina is truly separated from her husband.
