Interesting words from Andy. Could Jacqueline be the housewife that will reportedly leave the show forever? Guess we’ll find out tonight!

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND PART 2 OF THE REUNION?
According to the mag, the former Bachelor star is “begging” ABC to make him the new Bachelor, you know, considering how successful his first stint was.
“Jake has made it clear he would do it again in a heartbeat,” says a source about Jake, 31, who had a nasty split with ex-fiance Vienna Girardi, just 4 months after proposing to her.
However, it seems the Bachelor producers are on to Jake as a show source tells the magazine Jake is “more concerned with becoming famous than with finding a wife,” adding that “what he loved was the attention.”
According to the insider, the producers of the show “want someone whose goal is to find true love.” Good luck with that Bachelor producers.
TELL US – WOULD YOU WANT TO SEE JAKE RETURN AS THE BACHELOR? OR A FORMER BACHELOR RETURN FOR THAT MATTER?
The finale of The Ultimate Catch ended last night with Chad Ochocinco throwing us for a loop by actually picking one of the finalists, contrary to the rumors that he didn’t pick anyone.
The lucky Mrs. Ochocinco ended up being Rubi Pazmino, which came as no surprise considering she was his #1 pick from the start.
The shocker however is the fact that Chad and Rubi are still together! In a new interview with VH1, Rubi discusses how she and Chad are making things work, talks about her singing career, and also addresses the rumors that Chad is datingBasketball Wives‘ Evelyn Lozada.
Excerpts from Rubi’s interview below -
What has it been like since the show? Is this, in fact, for real? Have you been pursuing something with Chad?
Yes. We’ve definitely been talking. We talk all the time, everyday. And we definitely have an amazing connection. I don’t know if I’m allowed to say, but we do get to see each other and it’s been way more intimate and way more real since the show because you don’t have all these other women getting in the way. You get to have real conversations. There’s no stress, no time limits. There’s a lot of a possibility.
What do you make of the rumor that he’s dating Basketball Wives‘ Evelyn?
Even while we were on the show a lot of girls were saying he was with her. There have always been rumors. It wasn’t a huge shock to me when I heard that it was out there in the media. But just like with anybody, when you hear a rumor you just ask like, “Hey what’s going on?” I asked him about it. He said Evelyn’s a friend of his, they didn’t have anything and they’re friends. And that’s all. If someone tells you something, you just have to believe them. I’m not gonna sit there and ask him every two seconds. I asked him once and he answered it and that’s enough.
Was your career as a singer ever a consideration for signing up for the show?
You always think about your career, wondering if a given situation is gonna be a negative or a positive. I wondered, “Hey is this gonna be something that’s bad for what I do?” Obviously that’s a no. I’d be a super lazy person not to take advantage of the things I’m reaping now because of the show. It’d be dumb. And what I do of course depends on fan base and popularity and if this helps it, great. And Chad absolutely has no problem with it.
Would you go as far as to call it love?
I think love is a super strong word. Do we have the material and the hard work to make it to love? Yes. I think we definitely have the material to get there. But should we say love love love as of right now? I don’t know. It’s a love. Like I luv him, like L-U-V. He probably feels the same way about me. But we definitely have the potential to be able to get there.
Rubi might be in for some bumps in this relationship as one of the show’s contestants, Heather, gave an interview to Bossip, during which she claimed Chad was still trying to hook up with her after eliminating her on the show. Heather also alleged Chad was still calling his former Dancing With The Stars partner Cheryl Burke, and sending her gifts while filming the show.
If you have been following the news reports about Teresa Giudice for the past few months, and have recently wondered if things could possibly get worse for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, we are here to report the answer is yes.
The media outlet RadarOnline has uncovered some new documents filed on Thursday by Roberta A. DeAngelis, the US Trustee overseeing the bankruptcy petition of Teresa and husband Joe Giudice, basically asking the Judge in the case to dismiss the Giudices’ Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition because of fraud.
The main fraud accusation has to do with that little known book Teresa wrote titled Skinny Italian. The accusation is that Teresa failed to disclose the $250,000 advance she received from her publishing deal with Hyperion, which might explain why she went on a $60,000 shopping spree just days after filing.
This is fraud because the contract Teresa signed has been uncovered, and it is dated October 22, 2009, which is exactly a week before she filed for bankruptcy on October 29, 2009 to the tune of $11 million in debt. “The Defendants have knowingly and fraudulently made false oaths in this case” states the court documents.
Popeater also reports that while Teresa acknowledged in an April 2010 examination under oath that she received the book advance, her legal team failed to officially update court records about the newly disclosed assets.
Other assets the couple is accused of concealing include a bank account of Joe’s, two pieces of real property, vehicles, the ownership of an online boutique called TG Fabulicious, as well as Joe’s 1601 Maple Avenue Associates, LLC.
The complaint also accuses the Giudices of presenting false income tax returnsto the bankruptcy court. And as the days go by, prison time is starting to look like a real possibility for the Giudices, that is if the feds decide to file fraud and perjury charges against them.
As if this wasn’t humiliating enough, RadarOnine is also reporting today that Teresa will be hosting a table flipping contest in Delaware on September 25. The site states “Teresa will appear at the Funky Monkey in Wilmington Delaware, where she’ll hold a meet-and-greet with fans and invite women to flip a table for a prize.”

Bringing you the week 8 spoilers in the Big Brother house.
Thursday night brought us Ragan’s eviction. Though he was able to figure out the Brigade alliance, it was simply too late for him, as losing the POV competition to Enzo all but sealed his faith.
The live episode ended with the Big Brother house-guests playing a new HOH competition. In this week’s spoilers, find out the new HOH, their nominees, and the POV winner who will determine the HG to go home on Thursday.
The photos are here! ABC has released the official costume photos of the Dancing With The Stars season 11 cast.
There is however one cast member missing from the photos, as MTV reality star,The Situation, was still filming the 3rd season of the Jersey Shore when the photos were taken.
Above is this season’s Kate GosselinBristol Palin with partner Mark Ballas. Oddly enough, Bristol mentioned last week that she planned on wearing the most modest outfits and planned on being the most dressed contestant. Perhaps the above outfit is conservative in Alaska.
Bristol also appeared on the Tonight Show Friday, during which she denied the rumors of being a diva. “Literally, I was thinking about it today: the only thing I’ve ever asked for is a velcro mic pac so I don’t have to wear it on my belt loop,” she said. “That’s the only thing I’ve ever asked for.”
As for how she got on the show, Bristol mentioned she received a text message while working as an office manager at a dermatologist’s office in Alaska, and jumped at the opportunity. “Within the next week, we had signed the contract. Some people are like, ‘Do you really want to be in the spotlight?’ but I’m having fun with it,” said Bristol.
And when it comes to her dancing skills, the 19-year-old admits she is “so uncoordinated and I don’t have any rhythm.” Her partner Mark however reveals Bristol has been making good progress in her dancing.
We reported earlier this week that a source told us there was a rift between the ladies, but little did we know just how bad this rift was. Thanks to Melissa, who seems rather ballsy, we can now bring you more details of this feud. The source, who sent us the photos of Melissa, also sent us some facebook postings the 31-year-old housewife and mother of three has made on her facebook page within the past year.
Here’s what Melissa posted on her FB page on December 28, 2009 -
“Finds it amazing how you can bring Christmas cookies to someones house, then go back there again the next day after Christmas b/c of a different celebration, and the woman of the house picks up some cookies and says to you, “these are the k…ind of cookies I like, when you come to my house bring these cookies, I threw out the ones that you brought, did you get them from A & P” a supermarket”, NO I replied, I got them from Corrados, an excellent Italian shop, that we all know and love. And I’m pregnant so those caught my eye and I bought them, then she replied, “I threw them in the garbage I don’t like those kinds of cookies” NOTE TO SELF: I should have said, ” Well they are better then the NOTHING THAT YOU BRING TO MY HOUSE EVERY EASTER!! How can someone be so rude, and always want to attack someone else, what could it be, HMMMMM! I think I might know but I wont go there. I think some people need to come back to plant earth, Oh I forgot, she also let everyone know Last night, AND I QUOTE ” I AM A CELEBRITY” I’ve been quiet for so long but now you’ve pushed me right over the edge! RIGHT OVER IT!!”
Whoa! After getting some supporting messages from friends, Melissa then added, “I feel a little better, I was really upset and hurt so I just said it, not usually my personality, but don’t push a pregnant woman! Thanks for the kind words!”
And it doesn’t end there folks! Melissa also accuses Teresa of using her mother as a nanny! The following post was made on March 26, 2010 -
“I agree I hate when people say I don’t need a nanny I do everything myself, & their mother is there everyday!!!!”
Teresa has mentioned on many occasions that she doesn’t have a nanny and does everything herself. And Melissa is not the only one getting the cold shoulder from Teresa, it seems the rift extends to Teresa and her brother as well. The following was posted April 23, 2010 when a friend asked Melissa if she and Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga would be making an appearance on the show.
“We were at some of the parties but she really didn’t do any thing with her brother or his family….”
There you have it folks, straight from the horse’s mouth or posts rather. As of September 2nd, when the source sent us these messages, Melissa had yet to delete her posts. Must say this chick has a lot of balls. We like!
As for what might have caused the feud between Teresa and Melissa, a source tells RadarOnline the two have always been in competition, before adding that “Melissa will stand up to her on TV. She’s a nice woman, but Melissa will give her a run for her money if Teresa busts her balls.”
A source also tells us exclusively that Melissa’s daughter Antonia is into modeling and acting, similar to Teresa’s daughter Gia, which might also be a reason for their competition.
So how does Teresa, 38, feel about her sis-in-law-nemesis joining the show? Well if Teresa’s reaction on the Today Show wasn’t evident enough that she is none too pleased about the news, RadarOnline reports she absolutely does not want to be on the show with Melissa, but unfortunately for her, Bravo has made their choice.
The question on everyone’s mind now seems to be what is the real deal with Melissa and hubby Joe’s finances? As reported earlier this week, Melissa reportedly lives a very extravagant lifestyle, one that puts Teresa’s lifestyle to shame. A source told Radar that Melissa’s house is twice the size of the Giudices and that she has two live-in nannies! And we ask, why does one need two live-in nannies?
What stood out about the Gorgas is the statement that “Melissa’s husband used to have a landscaping business and then he got into real estate.” As we all know, the real estate market took a major dive in recent years, which is leading many to wonder if the Gorgas might be having financial troubles.
While there is no bankruptcy news to report on the Gorgas, we can confirm that their custom built 2009 home was listed for sale earlier this year. The 13,500 sqft home, with 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, was listed for $4.1 million, and was only taken off the market just days ago. This has us wondering why a financially stable Gorga family would be trying to sell a custom built home that they just moved into a year ago.
There are also rumblings of liens being put on the Gorgas’ home, but the only thing we found is that they have a $2.25 mortgage loan on the house and pay over $50,000 a year in property taxes alone.
Below are more photos of Melissa, who seems to be a party girl/housewife, as well as photos of the Gorgas’ mansion.
