Though Bravo’s Real Housewives of New Jersey series has yet to premier, one of the stars is already making headlines. Jacqueline Laurita is pregnant with her 3rd child as confirmed by People magazine. Jacqueline appeared visibly pregnant at the Bravo upfront presentations in New York City on Tuesday, where the network promoted its upcoming summer and fall schedule.
Jacqueline was shown in the show’s season preview talking about her past miscarriages so good luck to the new mother to be. She has a 6-year-old son, CJ, with her husband Chris, and a 17-year-old daughter, Ashley, from a previous marriage.
Ok Magazine is reporting that the two female judges on American Idol, Kara DioGuardi and Paula Abdul are alledgedly at war with each other. And their tension is all stemming from the fact that they are both in danger of losing their jobs next season.
“The plan to add a fourth person backfired,” an Idol insider told OK! about the troubles that have been mounting since Kara joined the cast at the beginning of this season. “Now the producers are left with a tough decision: Do they go back to the original three-judge format, or leave Kara there?”
Paula had previously taken a snipe at Kara when she talked to OK in January saying, “Kara and I get along great and have known each other for years, but we tried four judges before when we had celebrity guest judges sitting in, and it just doesn’t work.” Kara hit back in a statement: “Paula has a right to her opinions, but I was disappointed by her comments and hurt that she did not address them to me in person.”
The big rumor is that VH1 has given Danger aka Monica Leon her own show. No word yet on what kind of show this will be. Word is the new show will be announced on the For the Love of Ray J reunion show.
The other rumor is one of the remaining contestants on the show will quit in next week’s finale.
In a new interview with the U.K. Mirror, American Idol’s Simon Cowell hinted that he may be leaving the show after this season. Why? The sharp-tongued judge, 49, says he is getting tired of traveling for his three TV shows — and Idol would be the first to go.
“I don’t want to come over as whiney because I am very grateful that I have got these jobs,” says Cowell, who also hosts U.K.’s The X-Factorand Britain’s Got Talent. “But there is a point where I am not sure we can keep this schedule up.”
“It takes longer and longer to make these shows because you have to put more into them, and I am not sure we can sustain me doing three shows a year, with the record label and the TV production company,” he goes on.
He says he “can’t imagine not doing Britain’s Got Talent and I can’t imagine not doing X-Factor. But I guess America is more likely to go because I have got one year under contract. Maybe that will be the end.”
The NYDailyNews is reporting that The Yankees slugger was seen stepping out this weekend in Miami with The Real Housewives of New York star BethennyFrankel.
Alex Rodriguez and Bethenny allegedly shared an intimate dinner at a local restaurant on Friday night. Rodriguez then dropped off Frankel at the Fontainebleau Hotel around 12:30 a.m. Saturday. A source told The News’ Gatecrasher column last month that Frankel and A-Rod hooked up “three months ago” but that, after quickly rounding the bases, “A-Rod cut it off.”
Bethenny has laughed off these rumors saying, “We’re madly in love; we’re engaged. I fly to Miami every weekend. I’m in the front row when they’re playing. I never felt this way.” Before insisting, “No, I’ve never been in the same room with him,” adding, “Can it be George Clooney? Can’t it just be the celebrity I want to be aligned with?”
