Chad OchocincoRubi Pazmino of Ochocinco the Ultimate Catch

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 dating Basketball WivesEvelyn 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 returns to 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.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST NEWS ABOUT THE GIUDICES?

In what can be best described as a real life soap opera, RadarOnline is reporting today that Melissa Gorga, sister-in-law to Teresa Giudice has joined the cast of the Real Housewives of New Jersey!

Even more shocking? Radar reports Bravo has already began filming Melissa for weeks! A Giudice family source tells Radar, “She [Melissa] is not replacing her [Teresa]. I think Melissa is actually Dina’s replacement.”

Radar reports that not all the current housewives have officially signed off on a new season. TMZ reported yesterday that Teresa is holding off on signing on because she wants more money from Bravo. Similar to what has been reported of the NYC Housewives, TMZ states that Teresa wants Jersey Shore cash, or $30,000 per episode to be exact.

A source tells TMZ Teresa is “asking for a cut of the DVD and merchandise sales … freedom to make more paid appearances … and her salary DOUBLED.” Teresa is reportedly ready to walk away if Bravo doesn’t give her what she wants by September 3, when filming on the third season is scheduled to begin.

But back to Melissa, her addition to the show could be genius, as we reported yesterday that a source revealed to us that Melissa and Teresa do not get along. Melissa even reportedly complained about Teresa not allowing her young daughter to ride in the Limo with Gia and her friends during Gia’s birthday celebration.

As for Melissa, a source tells Radar she used to do paperwork for her husband Giuseppe Gorga as his secretary, before becoming his housewife. Talk about a come up.

The source adds that Melissa’s husband/Teresa’s younger brother is in real estate and that the Gorgas’ extravagant lifestyle will put the Giudices to shame. “Their house is actually twice the size as Joe and Teresa’s. It’s enormous! She has two live-in nannies and lives in a $4 million mansion on an exclusive lot in Montville. Teresa and Joe’s house looks like a garage compared to theirs.”

It’s likely that Danielle Staub’s nephew comment is what got this ball rolling. Something tells us this upcoming season will be good!

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel is dunzo!

The Real Housewives of New York City star has officially quit the show that made her a star, reports the new issue of UsWeekly.

“Last season was scary and painful,” she tells the magazine about the reason she rejected Bravo’s offers to return for season 4, which is scheduled to begin filming on Sept. 20. “It took all of the joy out of it.”

This decision by Bethenny doesn’t exactly come as a shocker as she has another hit show on Bravo, Bethenny Getting Married, a show that doesn’t require her to try to decode the incoherent ramblings of NYC co-star Kelly Bensimon.

Bethenny, who welcomed daughter Bryn Hoppy in May with husband Jason Hoppy tells UsWeekly she doesn’t “see any reason to go back.”

Despite Bethenny quitting the show, viewers can still expect to see her when the 4th season of the NYC Housewives returns. Why? Well a Bravo insider tells UsWeekly that Bethenny is still contractually bound to make a few appearances on RHONY next season, though Bravo is still hoping that she’ll return full-time.

Could money have played a part in Bethenny’s decision? Hollyscoop reported just last week that Bethenny was in negotiations to return to the show. Either way, I can’t say I blame Bethenny. I’m not certain Bravo could pay me enough money to go on vacation with the nutty Kelly and mean girl Jill. I think this will definitely impact the show though. Bethenny not appearing on RHONY would be equivalent to Nene Leakes leaving the Real Housewives of Atlanta.

Despite her constant denials of having relationship problems, it seems there was trouble in paradise after all for Gloria Govan.

NecoleBitchie is reporting that the Basketball Wives‘ star and her fiance Matt Barnes have called of their wedding, well that is unless the two “kiss and make up before the upcoming wedding date,” according to the site.

Matt and Gloria, pictured above on June 26, were set to tie the knot on August 21 in Santa Barbara but text messages were sent to a few of the groomsmen over the weekend informing them that the wedding had been canceled. Matt’s only reply to inquiries wondering what could have gone wrong was “Please respect my privacy”.

This doesn’t really come as a big surprise. Since the couple’s appearance on VH1’s Basketball Wives, there have been numerous rumors and rumblings that Matt wasn’t being the most faithful fiance.

The NicoleBitchie site also reported last month that Gloria might be appearing on season 2 on the show despite speaking out against the show this year. Her rep confirmed to the site in July that she was gearing up for a second season.

Jersey Shore Snooki Arrested

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, star of MTV’s the Jersey Shore has been arrested in New Jersey.

According to TMZ, Snooki was arrested for disorderly conduct Friday afternoon with law enforcement telling TMZ she remains in police custody.

“She didn’t hurt anyone or get in a fight,” says a source to PEOPLE. “She just needs to be in a drunk tank for two hours.”

The arrest will likely be on your TV screens in a couple of months as Snooki and co are currently filming the third season of the hit reality show, and oddly enough the second season premiered yesterday night.

MTV has yet to comment on the arrest.

UPDATE: More Arrest Photos Added.

Ashley Holmes Nose Job

It seems Ashley Holmes, 19-year-old star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, is joining the ranks of Bravo reality stars who have had some form of plastic surgery, as Ashley got a nose job just weeks ago.

After posting some new pictures of Ashley this weekend during which we pointed out she looked a tad different, some of our awesome readers pointed out in the comments section that Ashley did indeed get some plastic surgery.

A look at Ashley’s facebook page shows a picture of the bandaged up reality star after getting her nose job (that picture is posted below). When asked by her fans, and yes she has fans (26, 650 fans to be exact), why she got a nose job, Ashley gave the following hollywood answer, saying her rhinoplasty was done for her “septum and sinus problems.”

“it was actually for my septum and sinus problems.. while they were in there they smoothed a tiny bump i actually still kind of have it haha,” was actually Ashley’s full reply on June 10.

One has to wonder if her nose was the only thing she had done as she looks much different from before, and as much as we hate to say it or even think it, she does look much prettier no? Not that there was anything wrong with the way she looked before, but here’s to hoping Ashley stops here and doesn’t get any more changes done to her face or body.

Below are more photos of Ashley plus a photo of her with dad Matt Holmes, who also happens to be Jacqueline Laurita’s ex-husband.

UPDATE: Another photo of Ashley’s dad added.

We said a while back that you couldn’t make these things up, and folks you simply can’t when it comes to the Bravo housewives. Just a week after showing off her lavish unaffordable mansion in InTouch Weekly, Teresa Giudice’s luxurious home items have now been officially listed on an auction website to be auctioned off on August 22nd.

The website, A.J.Willner Auctions, specializes in auctioning off home items of the rich and morally bankrupt aka Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, who can been seen bragging about their lavish lifestyle on the show, filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 mil in debt back in October 2009.

And not only does the site list Teresa home address, and a time for the auction, 12:00pm for those interested in stopping by, it also posts the photos of items set for auction from Teresa’s home. Oddly enough, a lot of the items pictured, including Teresa’s stainless steel gas range, flat screen TV, and crest leather & fabric sofas, were all featured in her InTouch magazine home spread.

Other items of Teresa’s that are being auctioned off?

  • Schaefer & Sons Grand Piano
  • Wolf 48″ Stainless Steel Gas Range
  • 1080 Pure 42″ LCD Television
  • Chippendale Style Arm Chair & Pair of Oversized Candle Sticks
  • Round Pine Kitchen Table & 8 Upholstered Tudor Style Chairs
  • Panasonic Viera Oversized LCD Television
  • Dark Finish King Size Bedroom Set
  • Love Seat, Upholstered Arm Chairs & Area Rug
  • Connelly Antique Style Pool Table
  • Faux Marble Chess Set

Yes, even the bed Teresa sleeps on will be auctioned off. Not sure if it gets any more humiliating than that. Unfortunately for the Giudices, their problems have only just began.

As we reported last week, Teresa and Joe are now being accused of perjury by their bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, whose responsibility is to round up the Giudices’ assets and distribute the proceeds to creditors.

John alleges in court documents dated June 30 that the couple failed to list profits from several business, including Teresa’s clothing line TG Fabulicious LLC, a pizza parlor (which was shown in the most recent episode of Real Housewives) and her cookbook, Skinny Italian, which he claims was written prior to the bankruptcy filing.

The Wall Street Journal also reveals the Giudices are accused of undervaluing some of their luxury items in their bankruptcy filing, including a pool table ($1,000), wedding bands ($400) and living room furniture ($2,000). Like anyone would believe their wedding bands cost $400.

Jim Kridel, an attorney for the Giudices, however tells PEOPLE his clients are innocent of any wrong doing and he plans to object to the filing in court, saying they did not hide sources of income.

“The contract for Teresa’s book was signed after the bankruptcy petition was filed, and all money was received post petition,” he says, adding that the Giudices are legally allowed to freely spend money earned after filing bankruptcy. “If she knew the recipes, it doesn’t take four years to write a cook book,” he says. “It’s not a Mary Higgins Clark novel.”

As for the pizzeria, Kridel claims it is owned by Joe’s father, and therefore should have never been considered an asset at the time of the filing. What’s interesting is that Teresa said during last episode of the NJ Housewives that Joe owned the pizza parlour.

And when it comes to the book fiasco, Teresa is likely lying about that as well, because Teresa wrote in one of her Bravo blogs back in June that her book, Skinny Italian, went to press before Bethenny Frankel’s book, The Skinnygirl Dish, came out. This was Teresa’s attempts at fending off rumors that she copied Bethenny’s book.

So let’s dig a little more into this. Bethenny’s book came out December, 29, 2009 according to Amazon. Teresa filed for Bankruptcy on October 29, 2009. So according to Teresa, she signed the contract for her book, finished writing the book, and was able to get it to press, all within a 2 month span?! Well, we call BS and say it’s highly impossible unlikely. Plus one also has to wonder if Teresa is being made fully aware of her financial troubles. Showing off her home in a national magazine two weeks after their trustee filed documents to auction off her home items just seems surreal and downright moronic, but then again…

TELL US: DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR TERESA & JOE? WILL YOU BE ATTENDING THE AUCTION?

UPDATE – It seems the items listed on the auction website are only the featured items of the auction. A whole lot more of Teresa’s home items will also be auctioned off including all of the beds of her kids, all of the TVs in the kids’ bedrooms, toys, games, books, and even some of her baby’s items including the crib and rocker. Even her refrigerators and jewelry will be auctioned off.

Other items include the kids’ bikes, Gia’s ATV that was given to her on the show for her birthday, and also a boat owned by the Giudices. Poor kids. You can see the full list of auction items by clicking here. Thanks to our reader Anita Vacation for the link.

UPDATE #2 – More photos of Teresa’s home items to be auctioned off have been added.
