Uh oh Jersey Shore, fans could the fifth season be their last? For the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights it seems being the drunken party animals embarrassing themselves on television has grown old now that they’ve had a taste of fame and fortune!
HollywoodLife reports that according to a source close to the show the cast members are over it! “The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” the source reveals. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly Dhas been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” a different source explains. “Mike [The Situation] wants his own show but no one really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
JWoww has already confirmed she is filming a spinoff with BFF Snooki and is hopeful the plot will include them going on a road trip.
Jersey Shore’s Fifth Season airs on January 5th on MTV.
WOULD YOU WATCH ANY OF THE JERSEY SHORE CAST IN THEIR OWN SPINOFF OR SHOULD THE CAST STAY TOGETHER?
This week (like every other week in reality TV news) has been dominated by Real Housewives of New Jersey. You know how they say NYC is the city that never sleeps, I feel like it’s actually Jersey that never sleeps because the drama just keeps on coming faster than you can say “Joewwww!”
In the latest, Reality Tea’s source gives us exclusive behind the scenes details of Joe Giudice‘s Identity Theft case and reveals why Melissa Gorga‘s and Teresa Giudice‘s Christmas cards look so similar!
Earlier this week we reported that Juicy was indicted on wrongful use of identifying information and impersonation charges and could be facing multiple years in prison for his crimes! Reality Tea’s source confirms the Giudice family is “not happy” with the verdict and allegedly Joe has claimed to have stolen the documents used to obtain the driver’s license from his brother Pete Giudice!
“I will say Joe is loyal to his family. Pete is the one who gave Joe the documents,” the source shockingly reveals! “But, since that hasn’t been reported I assume Joe is saying he ‘stole’ them from his brother.” This possibly explains why Pete has not been charged with any crimes related to the incident.
Our source also reveals that Pete’s wife, Sheila Giudice, had no idea how the documents ended up in Joe’s hands! “The truth is, his wife Sheila had NO clue Pete gave Joe the documents. The documents were in their safe and only Pete and Sheila have access to it.”
“Sheila was irate when she learned Pete gave Joe the documents. But, since Joe was giving Pete work at the time and still is, Pete is indebted to Joe.” Pete filed for bankruptcy in 2010 and presumably was having financial troubles as the debts listed on their filing were “consumer debts” or personal debts and as opposed to business related debts.
Our source then goes on to describe the animosity between sister-in-laws at war Teresa and Melissa! Apparently, while Christmas is the birthday of Baby Jesus (and that’s what matters most to Melissa #backwardssignofthecross), and should be a time of peace, love, and giving these two ladies just cannot put their differences aside and focus on the bigger picture! And speaking of pictures… here comes Christmas Card-gate!
According to our source, the annual Gorgadice Christmas card feud has been happening for years as Teresa and Melissa battle it out to have the biggest, the best, and most over the top cards of them all! Our source also touches on some of Melissa’s other alleged copy-cat behavior, “Melissa is now putting recipes on her blog?”
“They both used the SAME photographer for their Christmas cards this year,” our source reveals, explaining why the Antonia is wearing the exact same coat that was seen on Gia in a card a few years back! Copies of the cards are below! Teresa posted on her website that she gets her cards from Portrait Artistry by Linda Marie and found her when she was “driving past her studio” and looking for someone to photograph Gia’s birth announcement.
Melissa recently announced on her personal blog that she has also used Linda for years, “I’ve been going to her since Antonia was born! She also did the beautiful family picture you saw us do on season 3 with Joe [Gorga]‘s family!” Right below that Melissa also offers one of her personal recipes.
According to our source, the ladies keep using Linda Marie for competition! Poor Linda Marie! “They both act like they love her [Linda] so much… meanwhile, neither one of them have used her the past few years. Teresa did use her last year for Christmas pics.” Teresa claims to have always used Linda on her website and included a montage of Christmas cards past for us to enjoy.
Our insider continues, “Melissa was going to Photos By Ginny for the past few years but, since she feared Teresa’s cards would be better then hers she went back to Linda.”
“They always hold out and wait until the last minute to mail their cards. As soon as Teresa sends hers out, a day or 2 later here come Melissa’s. This is the 4th year in a row Melissa has done this. Teresa stopped using Linda when Melissa started using her. Melissa tries to act like she always used her in her blog.”
“Melissa has been trying to keep up with Teresa and copying her more and more,” our insider adds. Well hopefully Melissa doesn’t copy her way into bankruptcy!
Christmas Card-gate is apparently just the tip of the iceberg with these two and even more upsetting, according to our source things are so acrimonious between the Gorgas and the Giudices, they will not be spending the holidays together because Teresa’s parents won’t allow it!
“Teresa’s father refuses to be in the same room as the 2 Joe’s. He is afraid of them fighting and can’t handle it in his health condition.” Ok, that’s when you know you need to stop it, sit down, and work out your differences!

“Having a new baby changes you,” Kim told PEOPLE. “Watching this season, I feel like you can just see how happy I am on my face – I don’t even have to say anything.” And this season Kim is happy to have her life on film, “I’m grateful to have all this captured on camera.”
Kim admits that past seasons were hard to watch due to the non-stop confrontations and drama surrounding her, but now that she is in a different place with a different focus she doesn’t cringe at all. Not even when we see her carting around a couple dozen wigs she treats like children? “I used to cover my eyes sometimes [during my Housewives scenes]. I’d be like, ‘Oh, god,’ ” Kim confesses. “And now, this season … it’s been incredible … I wasn’t involved with the drama.”
“I absolutely have no regrets, but this season is a lot easier for me to watch,” she reveals. “Last year I was caught up in drama and trying to do that bus tour. And it’s hard to watch.”
“You live it, and then six months later, you watch it on TV,” Kim explains of how reality TV works. “So this season, there aren’t any moments where I’m in a position where I’m going to cover my eyes.”
Kim is equally excited about the new year and the premiere of her spin-off, Don’t Be Tardy For The Wedding. So what’s her New Year’s Resolution? “To get more for sleep.” Darn, I was hoping it’d be something along the lines of start more drama or that her wigs would get their own spin-off. At least it’s not to produce another song!
THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW? IS KIM CAPABLE OF AVOIDING DRAMA OR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL SHE GETS SWEPT BACK IN? ARE YOU LIKING THE LESS CRAZY KIM THIS SEASON?
Frankly, I’m surprised Vicki and Gretchen haven’t bonded over their woes. Apparently, Vicki’s children are less than thrilled with her new beau and some of the other women are concerned about how fast the relationship is moving hot on the heals of her split from Donn Gunvalson!
Tamra Barney and her soulmate/bathtub porno partner Eddie Judge are still together but there are some hurdles as “free bitch” Tamra has difficulty settling down and apparently lets another man touch her boob! Hey, she is the hottest Housewife! And taking a cue from the totally believable and awesome Real Housewives of New York storyline, there appears to be some sort of Tamra-related pregnancy scare. Oh, please…
Finally it seems that Gretchen and Tamra are able to put the past behind them and mend fences as we see Tamra apologize to her former nemesis, but will Gretchen and Tamra’s new-found closeness interfere in her relationship with Vicki? The brief preview clip is below!
In other RHOC news, the new girl in the gated community recently introduced herself with a “Five Things You Don’t Know…” segment in Us Weekly! Heather, a former beauty queen, is originally from NYC and majored in Theater at Syracuse University where she aspired to be a Broadway actress! When an audition sent her to LA she “never looked back.”
She has since appeared in several TV roles on shows such as Married With Children! And despite being a full-time mom, she tries to fit in acting, joking that she “still [does] a pilot every year that doesn’t get picked up.”
Heather met her husband Terry Dubrow, a plastic surgeon, on a blind date. Terry is also a Reality TV veteran that appeared on such gems as The Swan and Bridalplasty. Of her family life Heather says, “My husband and I are very down to earth people. We’re not defined by where we live or what we have. We’re just normal people and we’re incredibly grateful for what we have and each other.” We’ll see about that! A photo of Heather, Terry and their four children, below.
Finally, it seems that Vicki and Jesus Barbie, original flavor, Alexis Bellino have made up! Alexis recently posted a photo of Vicki, Brooks, herself, and her king husband, Jim Bellino on her Facebook page under the caption: “It’s gonna be a great season!” The photo is below.
Real Housewives of Orange County Season 7 premiers on Bravo, February 7th at 9/8c.

Well, In Touch Weekly now reports that what viewers saw was mild compared to what was happening behind the scenes and that Kim’s situation was far more dire than we could have imagined! In a new expose titled “Destroyed By Hollywood,” the magazine speaks to a relative and a family friend of Kim’s that claim appearing on the series caused Kim to relapse! “Before the show, Kim was sober and living a low-key life,” the relative reveals.
“Kim is a really quiet person when she’s sober,” the relative shares. “But in order to get good ratings you need big personalities. So she started drinking again almost as soon as she got on the show.” It was Kim’s sister Kyle Richards who got her a spot on the show after she introduced Kim to producers and it was also Kyle who exposed Kim’s alcoholic past and publicly worried about her drinking and behavior throughout this season.
The pressure of being on camera and dealing with the show, including interacting with the other ladies, led Kim to start drinking again. “She turns to alcohol to deal with her nerves,” the relative explains.
Initially, Kim’s silly and goofy personality along with her shy, but straight-forward demeanor earned her fans and she became one of the breakout stars of the series, but all that changed this season when viewers witnessed a very different side of Kim. According to Bravo insiders much of Kim’s behavior was so outrageous it had to be cut from the series, which is perhaps why we aren’t seeing much of her this season.
“They’ve actually edited out a lot of scenes in which she was acting really sloppy,” the insider recounts. “It was too evident that she was on something.” That lost footage was one of the reasons the network supposedly encouraged Kim to seek treatment for her addiction.
Kim apparently has a “lifelong” pattern of using alcohol and has been in and out of rehab throughout the past decade. Kim actually admitted this to fans in a Twitter blog, in which she acknowledged her past struggles with alcohol abuse and claiming that she was better now.
According to her family friend Kim was far from healed and in fact her desire to be famous fueled her addiction. “She has always wanted to be famous,” the friend shares. “Even a taste of it is addictive to her.” Indeed, Kim’s days in the limelight as a child star dwindled once she reached adulthood and pursued marriage and children.
Kim tried to break into acting as an adult, but never quite got a big break. Making it a particularly bitter pill to swallow was her niece Paris Hilton‘s rise to superstardom for a sex tape and personal scandals. Kim “actually had talent,” the family friend explains, “so to watch her niece, Paris become huge for doing nothing was especially difficult. It ate her up inside.”
The pressure of dealing with disappointment, along with the sudden new-found interest in her personal life due appearing on a hugely popular reality show pushed Kim to drink again. “She’s a closet drinker who uses alcohol as a way to escape from pressure,” the relative reveals.
And despite Kim’s ex-husband Monty Brinson‘s optimism that this time rehab will work for the struggling star, her relative is dubious about her potential for long-term success. “It’s good that she’s taking responsibility. But she won’t really get better unless she quits TV altogether.”

THOUGHTS ON THE ARTICLE? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM WILL TRULY GET THE HELP SHE NEEDS AND BEAT ADDICTION? SHOULD KIM LEAVE THE SHOW?
Another day, another piece of news about the Kardashians! In the latest, Kim Kardashian is furious about so-called “malicious” claims that her trip to Haiti was for publicity (cough, cough) and a human rights group leader insists there is no proof that any Kardashian klothing utilized sweatshop labor. Why is there no proof? Because the organization has not finished conducting their investigation.
Kimmie Kakes recently took to her blog to defend her trip to Haiti as righteous and without ulterior motive. #yeahright. Claiming to be “inspired” by the women of Haiti, Kim believes the trip changed her life.
Calling the experience a “very emotional and surprisingly positive journey that I will never forget,” the Kourtney & Kim Take New York star then tackles the rumors of what she really did in Haiti, writing, “some media outlets have tried to tarnish the motive behind my visit and have written completely ridiculous and untrue things.”
“The National Enquirer wrote that I went to a fashion show in Haiti and then spent a fortune pampering myself! The truth is that I was at the Haitian Artisan Fair, where the amazing men and women who make their jewelry and crafts sell them to visitors to make a living, and I bought some of their beautiful jewelry after the fashion show!! Reading this made me so disappointed in the media.”
“Taking such a positive thing and writing something malicious and untrue,” Kim continues. “The journalists obviously didn’t bother to do their research and instead published a ridiculous story to sell copies.”
“I have become accustomed to dealing with rumors and lies spread about my family or my relationships, and have learned to ignore it to a certain extent,” Kim seethes. “But when a magazine makes the decision to twist the truth and write lies like that, it belittles the entire experience we had in Haiti, and I won’t let them do that.”
Considering Kim usually likes it when journalists follow her around and report on her every move for money, I’m surprised she is this upset. Maybe it’s because this time she doesn’t like what these so-called malicious journalist have to say! A photo of Kim enjoying the fashions of Haiti are below. She was only shopping for charity, you guys!
Charles Kernaghan, the Executive Director of the Institute is claiming he advised Star Magazine against printing the untrue article! “It was a wise idea to wait on the article,” Mr Kernaghan explains, because currently there is “no proof that the specific factories the Kardashians use violated child labor standards or human rights.”
Mr. Kernaghan feels he was misquoted by the publication and that his statements were twisted to convey a certain point! Star Magazine reported him as saying: “The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people. Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights.”
But Mr. Kernaghan explains that he was actually speaking, not of the specific factories the Kardashians use, but of a specific region of China known for utilizing slave labor. His actual sentiment is that while child labor practices in many of the factories are appalling he has “no proof that the specific factories the Kardashians use employ such practices.”
He goes onto add that his organization is conducting an investigation into the factories the Kardashians use to produce their merchandise, but at this time there is NO EVIDENCE of any human rights abuses, adding that “75%”of the factories in that region have violations similar to those reported by Star.
Kris Jenner has spoken out denying the accusations, telling TMZ the factories used to produce Kardashian products are “strictly policed” and do not violate child labor or human rights practices.
Finally, onto something important! Kendall Jennerturned sixteen in November, so naturally she needed an over-the-top party to celebrate this milestone. There was some sort of costume-circus theme and Khloe Kardashian played photographer for the evening. Some photos of the event are below.
TELL US YOUR THOUGHTS: DO YOU BELIEVE KIM’S TRIP TO HAITI WAS A PUBLICITY STUNT? DO YOU THINK THE KARDASHIAN’S FACTORIES WILL BE FOUND GUILTY OF ANY HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATIONS? HOW LONG UNTIL THEY DO A PUBLICITY TRIP TO CHINA TO VISIT SAID FACTORIES WITH PHOTOGRAPHERS PRESENT?

In Touch Weekly has just learned that Jacqueline was indeed a stripper at an illustrious and elegant establishment named the Glitter Gulch (a photo of the sign is below) — an off the strip joint that I’m sure is just as classy as Lookers ever was!
A former close friend of Jacqueline’s spoke to the mag and gave some pretty salacious details about the sweet-natured Housewives past. “She was a stripper at a Las Vegas club called the Glitter Gulch,” discloses the friend (some friend she is!). “She worked there from 1992 to 1993. Like all strip clubs, it was an awful place.”
“She was very young, she was newly divorced, and she was a single mother,” the friend reveals of Jacqueline’s decision to go into stripping.
In addition to her tumultuous past as a dancer, in 1996 Jacqueline was also arrested for assaulting her then live-in boyfriend! A different former friend tells the magazine that Jacqueline spent “several years” in a “volatile” relationship that culminated when she was arrested after she “slapped him in the face and punched him in the groin,” according to the police report!
“She go into an argument with her boyfriend because he came home later than he should have,” the report states. “She no longer wanted to speak to [him], so she went into the bedroom.” It also claims that the boyfriend “would not leave her alone and kept wanting to talk about why she was angry” which led to the aggression on her part.
Ashlee recently blogged about her mom’s alleged past and flat-out denies that their pre-Jersey life had anything to do with nudie bars. When asked by a fan she responded: “NO. Stereotype much? That rumor was actually started by Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub (go figure — LOL!). Jealousy is an UGLY thing. My mom was NEVER a stripper. She’s a cosmetologist.”
“The rumor actually started when people heard we moved to NJ from Vegas when my mom’s fiancé (Chris) was from Jersey. Teresa and Danielle just put it in the press knowing it wasn’t true to start a problem. I don’t think my Mom really cared. She thought it was kind of flattering that people could believe that. Haha. Only her right?”
Shockingly, Jacqueline has been keeping quiet on her Twitter page — for now — which is a first for the loquacious Twitter-holic. Hopefully Jacqueline is focusing on friends and family and enjoying the holiday, despite the bad news coming to light.
I have to say all in all this is a bad week for the ladies of Jersey. A lawsuit, an indictment and now an expose. Hopefully 2012 will bring better things for the most drama-filled Housewives of them all!
But on a lighter note, following in the footsteps of Teresa,Melissa Gorgais now showing off her family Christmas Card photo! “Happy Holidays!! Our Christmas card will be in the Us Weekly tomorrow! But here is a little sneak peak!” wrote Melissa on her Facebook page. The adorable photo is below!

DO YOU BELIEVE JACQUELINE WAS A STRIPPER? SHOULD JERSEY-STRIPPER GATE BE LAID TO REST ALREADY? DO YOU BELIEVE TERESA OR DANIELLE ARE INVOLVED?

It’s all about the Jersey Shore ladies today. Snooki is headed to court, Sammi ditches the extensions and talks Jersey and JWoww launches a bikini line to go with her new body!
It’s another Jersey Shore lawsuit and this time Snooki is being sued. Uh-ho! The pint-sized poufflette has been slapped with a lawsuit for $7M. The NY Post is reporting that the recently svelte Snooks has been countersued by licensing company SRG Ventures. Snooki claims she saves her money — and it’s a good thing just in case she has to pay up!
Last year, Snooki partnered with SRG Ventures company to launch a line of Snooki merchandise — because that’s just what everyone wants — but filed a suit against the company in October to end her contract claiming SRG did not fulfill contractual obligations to net her enough money or branding partnerships.
SRG retaliated and filed a mult-million dollar counterclaim against both Snooki and her management company, Neon Entertainment (yes, I know — two things that go together like bread and butter: Neon and Snooki. SRG’s counterclaim accuses Le Snooki of sabotaging the deal by negotiating with other brands “behind SRG’s back” and not following up sufficiently on development deals they arranged, such as: Snooki-school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie.
Snooki’s rep calls these claims ridiculous, stating: “Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG’s version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court.” We shall see how this all hashes out. Maybe they should all go get drunk at The Shore and work things out the Jersey-way!
Moving along to other Jersey ladies, Sammi has been the subject of a Jane MakeUnder! The mag straightened her hair, scrubbed her face, exfoliated the fake tan away, put her in some clothes that cover her lady bits and voila! Classy! Photos of a de-Jersified Sammi are below.
While she was getting her Jersey Shore image washed away, Sammi talked to the mag about the new season and how things are going in her life. Thankfully she is still Ronnie-free! Sammi claims she is “nervous” about the upcoming season, but “excited” and reveals that she is actually closest to cast mate Deena Cortese.
“Deena’s actually my best friend on the show and outside of the show, we hang out all the time, we talk all the time,” Sammi reveals. “She balances me out. She’s loud, crazy and extremely positive and fun and I’m more calm and collected so we kinda balance each other out.”
As for who she doesn’t get along with, the answer is very clear: The Situation! “I just don’t get along with him at all; he’s crazy,” Sammi explains. “Mike’s the troublemaker in the house and I think he loves it. He loves to stir up the drama, that’s just who he is.” But despite their tumultuous relationship he still has a place in Sammi’s heart. “He’s a part of my family, he’ll always be a part of my family… but he’s like that brother that you just never really wanted.”
As for her relationship status, Sammi is definitely still single! “Right now I’m single,” she shares. “Ronnie’s cool. We’re really good friends, I’ll always love him, but I’m working on myself and my career and doing what’s best for me.” Good for you, Sammi! Stay strong, but not steroid strong!
Surprisingly, this season their relationship was pretty low-key. “You’re not gonna see too much drama with the relationship because there barely was any,” Sammi relays. How boring!
Sammi also dishes on The Situation’s supposed financial situation and his situation with Snooki! “I have no idea what even goes on with the Nicole and Mike drama,” Sammi confesses. “For some reason, I don’t know, I feel like something did happen between them. Nobody knows because they have their own issues and beef with each other in Italy and that definitely falls out and carries over in Seaside, so I mean, I don’t know what really went on with them but they used to be best friends and when we go back to Seaside it’s just madness.”
For the upcoming season, Sammi says expect the usual! “The whole Mike and Nicole drama thing is definitely gonna happen again, and then the whole Nicole and Jionni thing, but that’s really it. In Seaside we really got along — you see less drama with me. Of course, there’s gonna be hookups, partying … the whole nine yards.”
You can read the rest of the interview at xojane.com; it’s a good read and she discusses her life away from the shore, what she thinks of her other castmates as well as her beauty routine!
Finally, JWoww has released the sun worshipper’s dream bikini line! Using her public persona to confront the important things to a Jersey Shore girl, JWoww has partnered with Perfect Tan to release the Perfect Tan Strapless Stay-Put Bikini. That’s right — no tan lines girls! Never again worry about sitting up unexpectedly while sunbathing only to have your boobies exposed to the world. Thank goodness Jenni has offered a classy solution to a very important sun bathing dilemma!
Photos of her Perfect Tan Strapless Bikinis are below. I have to say, pretty hot if you’re into that sort of thing! The line is available in February 2012. Just in time for Jersey Shore’s fifth season!
TELL US- WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE LATEST NEWS? IS SNOOKI’S COUNTERSUIT JUSTIFIED OR FRIVOLOUS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SAMMI’S MAKEUNDER? WOULD YOU BUY ONE OF JWOWW’S BIKINIS?
