When news of the firing of Danielle Staub hit weeks ago, a few media outlets revealed the reason was an ultimatum given to Bravo by the Manzos.
Well, we can now confirm today that ultimatum is indeed true and fact. TMZ obtained a video of Caroline Manzo during her on camera deposition in the defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.
In the video, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals she delivered a strict ultimatum to the show’s producers — if Danielle returned for another season … she’d quit the show.
“I did tell Bravo and Sirens that there is no amount of money you could put on the table for me next year,” said Caroline, adding that “if Danielle Staub is on the show, I am out because my integrity means too much to me … so for Season 3, they know it’s either Danielle or myself.”

The “lucky” one is Cindy Barshop. Cindy is the owner of Completely Bare, a successful chain of day spas specializing in hair removal. The spa has three locations in Manhattan, Palm Beach, Fla. and Scarsdale, New York.
UsWeekly reveals Cindy is a single mom to two twin girls born in 2009, while a source tells the mag “she’s funny and very nice!”
In a recent interview with UsWeekly, Ramona, who didn’t reveal Cindy’s identity, had the following to say about her: “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself. Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her about something — that’s just who I am sometimes!”
As we reported last week, Ramona confirmed all of the NYC housewives from last season will be returning to the show. More pictures of Cindy below.
Just days after RadarOnline first reported the split, PEOPLE magazine is now confirming Kim Kardashian and boyfriend Miles Austin have broken up.
“There’s no huge reason except their distance apart,” Kim a source close to the couple tells PEOPLE. “With his season and Kim’s filming [Keeping Up with the Kardashians] it just slowly split them apart.”
Another source tells Radar “they broke up about a week ago.” The breakup comes as Kim is in Europe promoting Keeping Up With the Kardashians, while Miles is focusing on his new football season with the Dallas Cowboys.
“They tried to keep it as low profile as possible when they were together. They were acting as if they were single or just having fun, but they never were – it was the real deal. They were always strong, but before Kim left for Europe they decided it’s not fair that they don’t get to spend more time together and ended it,” says a source to PEOPLE, adding that the breakup was mutual.
Life&Style magazine is reporting that at approximately 11am EST Saturday morning, Danielle Staub had her Range Rover repossessed at the house she had been staying at.
“You should have seen the begging,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “Danielle pleaded with the repo guys but they had their job to do, and they did it.”
Life&Style reports Danielle has been having financial troubles since the court took over her final checks from the Bravo network. She fell behind on her car payments and is reportedly penniless. No word on why the court took control of Danielle’s checks.

Joe Giudice has been sentenced to 10 days in jail reports RadarOnline.
According to Radar, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sentenced this Wednesday. The sentence was in regards to the DUI Joe received back in January, the same one that was featured on the show.
Radar reports the jail sentence is a result of Joe driving with a suspended license. In addition to the 10 days in jail, Joe was also fined $1,000, with his license being suspended for at least another year. If you recall, Joe was also sentenced earlier this year for the actual DUI. The Judge in the DUI case imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service.
Joe is scheduled to begin serving his sentence next week. The Giudices have yet to comment on this though something tells us Teresa is very devastated she will have to go 10 days with no hanky panky from Joe.
The 6th episode of the Real Housewives of DC titled “Securing Homeland” (love all the DC puns by the way) aired last night and the above photo of Mary pretty much sums up my reaction throughout this episode.
The episode starts out with Mary and Cat bonding over the topic of their children. Cat, who is now separated from her husband Charles, expresses that she sometimes feels like a single mother because Charles is away often. Mary explains her struggle with trying to keep her daughter Lolly away from her closet, as she brings up the lock she put on it. In her interview, Mary makes it clear that Lolly is completely innocent of being involved in the theft Tareq accused her of. Mary then proudly proclaims the only thing she has to worry about is Lolly breaking into her closet. Must say if keeping Lolly out of her closest is Mary’s biggest issue with her daughter, then Mary should be a happy mother.
In the next scene, the hilarity in the episode begins as we see Michaele calling up Stacie to discuss hiring her as a real estate agent because she and Tareq are ready to fake pretend to want to buy a home, you know, just as long as the cameras are rolling. Stacie mentions in her interview that things with the Salahis are a bit awkward thanks to the Winery dinner from hell, but Stacie is all about her business, and is willing to overlook the overall shadiness of the gruesome twosome.

In what some fans of the show saw coming from a mile away, RadarOnline is reporting today that there is a major rift between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice.
According to RadarOnline, Caroline and Teresa are now on the outs because Caroline is tired of all of Teresa’s drama. A source even tells the site the two ladies hate each other! “Caroline is not talking to Teresa,” says an insider to Radar. “She is just tired of all the drama. She is just keeping her distance. She doesn’t mind if Teresa is on the show, but they all hate each other now.”
The insider adds, “She feels that Teresa has gotten to carried away with everything and she is just aggravated with her.” Radar also reiterates the news that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, whom she hates, will be on the show next season. Must say season 3 of the NJ Housewives is looking good right about now.
This reported rift between Caroline and Teresa doesn’t come as a surprise, as the two ladies have had some rather interesting things to say regarding the other’s behavior this season.
Here’s what Teresa wrote in her Bravo blog regarding Caroline’s complaints about her kids on the trip to Italy –
“I don’t know why Caroline was so crabby. I know she was sick before we left and in pain, but she could have stayed home like Dina. What did she think it was going to be like with 20 people and babies? It wasn’t a romantic honeymoon for her and Albert. I don’t know why that shocked her. And I’m sorry she felt uncomfortable when we were all speaking Italian, but hello, it’s Italy! Her Italian grandfather might not have taught her Italian, but I think she’s had plenty of time over the years to learn it if she wanted to!”
And Below is what Caroline had to say in her blog about Teresa’s outburst on part 1 of the reunion show –
“First things first. I expected yelling, screaming, and tears. I NEVER expected Andy to get tossed like a rag doll. I was in complete shock when that happened. Actually, I had to compose myself because I wanted to cry. Seriously, I did. When Teresa jumped off the couch and approached Danielle it was literally within the first ten minutes of filming. The only thing going through my mind at that moment, beyond the obvious WTF is going on, was that I couldn’t sit through hours and hours of this. If this is happening now, what’s it going to be like when we get to the real issues? Thank God it never got to that level again, it was an ugly moment. Ugly, ugly, ugly.”
