As for how she’s coping with the public split, she is “doing great,” according to an insider. “She went through a tough time, and she’ll never forget it. She feels like she put herself out there and got slapped in the face. It doesn’t matter how thick skinned you are, it’s going to hurt.”

Despite the fact that she and her husband Joe Giudiceare being accused of perjury, in the form of concealing assets during their bankruptcy filing, in addition to an auction date set for August 22nd to auction off the contents of their home items to pay off their creditors, Teresa Giudice is showing off her home in the latest issue of In Touch magazine.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who seems to be in major denial when it comes to her financial and legal woes, tells the mag of her 12,000-square-foot NJ mansion: “My house is very warm — even though it’s big, it’s very inviting and that’s what I love.”
And despite the fact that her husband’s finances are being investigated by the IRS plus the very public knowledge of her $11 million debt, Teresa makes certain to brag about just how luxurious her mansion is. “We had our house built with nothing but marble, granite and onyx,” she says, “I don’t think you can ever have too much of that. I could’ve had even more,” says Teresa the idiot.
Teresa could also be heard bragging that her mansion is worth $5 mil in last week’s episode of the Real Housewives of NJ, despite the fact that it’s value was listed at $1.7 mil in their bankruptcy filing. More photos of Teresa’s home below.
In other NJ news, more legal woes for Danielle Staub. Just days after her ex-boytoy/former sex tape partner Steve Zalewski filed suit against her for defamation, Zap2It is now reporting that her ex-husband is also planning to file a new lawsuit against her within the next two weeks .
That ex-husband is Kevin Maher, the man who wrote ‘Cop Without A Badge,’ the book which details Danielle’s sordid past as a prostitution coke whore.
Kevin tells Zap2it his attorneys will file a lawsuit against Danielle, her book’s alleged ghost writer and its publisher, Simon & Schuster for “lies” found in her book, “The Naked Truth.”
And what exactly are those lies? “The lie that she told about me was that I beat her in a cocaine stupor for days,” Kevin says. “And then when the police showed up, I confessed and then I went to prison.” He adds, “I was never in prison in my adult life. Period.”
Kevin also reveals he is actually working with Steve and that the two had hoped their suits would hit together. “Steve and I were working together,” he reveals. “We wanted to sue her on both coasts at the same time, but my lawyer was too busy and Steve beat us to it.”
VH1 has now unveiled the cast of Ochocinco: The Ultimate Catch! The dating show follows NFL superstar and former Dancing With The Stars alum Chad Ochocinco as he tries to find love amongst 85 women. Yes 85 women.
However Chad, who was romantically linked with his DWTS partner Cheryl Burke earlier this year, will be eliminating majority of those women to get to his final 17 top choices in the premiere episode of the show, which debuts tonight July 11th at 9/8c on VH1.
There was a minor scandal involving Chad and his choice of women that hit the blogs as filming began on the show last month. A contestant on the show and someone working in production alleged that Chad did not want any African American women on his show, and that he wanted “all the black girls to be “cut”, except for 1.”
Chad allegedly wanted to keep the Latina and brunette White girls because he believed they are “better” for him. The producers had to Chad into keeping two black women as part of his final 17.
Chad did deny the claims, stating that “certain girls” were mad they got sent home and that he’s colorblind. Oddly enough, a look at the 17 finalists show only 3 black women.
Also premiering tonight is the second season of Terell Owen’s reality show – The T.O. Show. VH1 promises season 2 will feature TO leaving Buffalo, rocking a wig, possibly rekindling an old flame, all while embracing fatherhood. Also returning are TO’s two longtime friends, Kita Williams and Monique Jackson, to yell at him help him make better life decisions.The new season premieres tonight at at 10:30/9:30c.

The 38-year-old mother of four declares she likes her “body better now!” since having her children. Teresa also credits her breast implants for helping her feel confident in a bikini. “I just got them done last summer, so this is my first time wearing a bikini and I have to say, this is the happiest I have ever been with my body. I feel like I have the whole package!”
Teresa, who’s been married to hubby Joe Giudice for 10 years explains how a “healthy Italian diet,” gym workouts and running after her kids has helped her get into tip-top shape for the summer.
You look amazing! How much do you weigh now?
Well, I hardly ever weigh myself, but I do fit back into most of the clothes I wore before I had Audriana. I think I’m a 27 jean size and size 4 in dresses.
Did you diet to lose the baby weight so fast?
No! I’m never on a diet. I always eat what I want. When I was pregnant, I had to eat anything that was in front of my face. It’s an Italian thing — they say if you see something and don’t eat it, your baby will get a birthmark!
What part of your body do you like the most?
I love my new boobies, but if I had to pick between an ass or boobs, I’d have to say my ass is more important to me. I’m proud of my bubble butt!

In other housewives news, a new episode of Bethenny’s Getting Married? (really hate dislike that darn question mark) is airing tonight. In a different kind of March madness, Bethenny Frankel tries to get some planning done but it’s hard when she competes with March Madness for Jason’s attention. A preview clip is below.
CBS has now unveiled the cast of the best reality show ever hit reality show Big Brother. The 13 houseguests that will be taking part in the 12th season of what CBS is dubbing the “Summer of Sabotage,” include a model, a bartender, and a chemistry graduate student who is also a VIP cocktail waitress.
But what everyone wants to know is what is the big twist this season? Well according to executive producer Allison Grodner, a mole has been planted among the houseguests to do the viewers’ bidding and disrupt the players’ lives during this season which debuts July 8 at 8 p.m. ET.
The mole, who will be revealed to viewers during the July 15 episode, is being called the Saboteur and isn’t eligible to win the $500,000 grand prize.
“For the first time ever, we have someone in the house who, in a way, is playing their own game,” said Grodner, who stressed that the operative is not an actor but a real person who was picked alongside everyone else. “They’re playing for a cash prize, if they make it a certain amount of time in the house. If they don’t last, they’re out, and their cover is blown.”
The Saboteur is similar to season 8′s introduction of “America’s Player,” which allowed one contestant, Eric Stein, to complete viewer-voted tasks for cash, unbeknownst to his house mates. The main difference this time however is that the cast will be made aware of the saboteur’s existence beforehand.
Reality villainess Omarosa Stallworth’s dating show premiered last week on TV One. The show, officially titled Donald J. Trump Presents The UltimateMerger, follows Omarosa’s quest to find love amongst 12 eligible bachelors.
Omarosa, 36, who is mostly known for her role on the first season of The Apprentice, describes her new venture with Donald Trump as “a mix between ‘The Apprentice’ and ‘The Bachelorette.’”
Donald and Omarosa reportedly developed the show together.“When you have a development project with ‘the Donald’ you don’t pass it up,” Omarosa told BV Newswire. “Donald is invested in me and seeing me succeed and you have to have someone who is going to look after your success.”
As for the show, it was revealed in premiere episode that Omarosa has a history with two of the bachelors. Omarosa revealed she had briefly dated Charles Parker, a foreign currency trader whom she refers to as a “player,” and R&B singer Al B. Sure, who Omarosa notes, “didn’t seal the deal” the first time around.
Another notable bachelor on the show is CJ Miller, who appeared on the first season of ABC’s True Beauty.
When it comes to the direction of the dating show, Omarosa makes it clear her show is distinct from the others. “I really enjoyed the whole franchise, from ‘Flavor of Love’ to ‘Ray J,’ and I think there’s a place for that type of program, but this one is kind of different. Ain’t nobody passing out roses or writing poetry,’ she laughed.
The Ultimate Merger airs Thursdays on TV One at 9 p.m. ET. A new episode airs tonight. I gave the show a shot last week and actually enjoyed watching it. It was a good show all around. I would like to know what you all thought of the show.
In the mean time, below are the photos & brief bios of the 12 Bachelors.
Name: Al B. Sure!
Age: 41, Occupation: Recording Artist
Name: CJ Miller
Age: 27, Occupation: Author/Model
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BACHELORS AND THE SHOW?
The Real Housewives of D.C., set to premiere August 5th, has already proven to be Bravo’s most controversial housewives franchise, though an episode has yet to air.
Bravo officially announced the cast of the DC housewives this week, and white house party crasher Michaele Salahi is part of the cast, but this isn’t exactly a shocker considering the DailyBeast revealed months ago that Michaele would indeed be on the show.
Joining Michaele on the reality show, from left to right (pictured above), are Catherine Ommanney, Stacie Turner, Mary Amons, and Lynda Erkiletian.
Bravo describes the DC ladies as “connected D.C. power players,” who “have their pulse on the most important cultural events, political galas, gallery openings, and fundraisers in Washington society.”
And as for the controversial decision to put Michaele Salahi on the show? Andy Cohenhad the following to say -
“We kept Michaele in the show because she has a compelling life story, distinct relationships with the other women, and most especially because she represents a very real example of the inextricably intertwined worlds of political connections with social hierarchy. To the people who might excoriate us and say we’re making Michaele famous or glorifying what she did: ‘here’s what’ — we don’t make shows to make people famous and as a corollary, we don’t view being on a television show either as a reward or a punishment. That’s up to the individuals who choose to do so and the people who choose to watch and react.”
Michaele and her husband Tareq Salahi were never charged or prosecuted by the white house though presidential Social Secretary Desiree Rogers did lose her job as a result of the incident.
The Photos and Bios of the Ladies Below -
Michaele Salahi, 44 – Even before the white house incident, Michaele and hubby Tareq were notorious for their flamboyant polo matches and a long-running family feud over their Oasis Winery in Fauquier County. Raised in Oakton, Michaele worked at Nordstrom before marrying Tareq in a splashy 2003 ceremony. Though she turned up with camera crews at Redskins cheerleader alumnae events, the organization denied she was a member. A lot of people are also claiming the Salahis owe them money.
Alexis, who might or might not have gotten a new face since her Bravo show went off the air, hosted a Hawaii Day luau at the TAO Beach on Friday where she joked about Jim’s nonalleged controlling ways. Alexis told the crowd, “I think we all know that I am the one in charge!” The couple also hit up LAVO for more celebrating.
More pictures of Alexis, 33, below as the mother of three even stripped down to show off her bikini body at TAO Beach.
