Danielle Staub

Ever since Life&Style broke the news that Bravo fired Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the question has remained is she fired or isn’t she?

Well the NYDailyNews is now confirming today that Danielle was indeed fired by Bravo, but they put it in nicer terms, stating that Bravo simply did not ask her to return.

An insider confirms to the site that Bravo has began working on the 3rd season of the hit show, and has asked Danielle’s co-stars Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita to return.

It all went down a week after the reunion show taping. Bravo reportedly sent Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline letters asking them to return for a third season. The insider adds that Danielle did not receive a letter and, was not even aware that her co-stars had.

A source also adds that Danielle was unaware she was off the show until she read it online on Monday. As for Danielle’s cryptic non-denial message on Monday, the source says she’s not that upset because she might be getting her own solo reality show. She is said to be “working with production companies who are really interested and have talked to Bravo.”

And as for the gruesome twosome aka the two Kims, they weren’t asked back as well. The source stays this season was a bit of an audition for Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, adding that they might be asked to make guest appearances next season.

The NYDailyNews doesn’t touch on whether or not Dina Manzo was asked back. Dina left during this season because she no longer wanted to film with Danielle. Dina however posted an interesting tweet this week regarding the Danielle story – “yes, I’ve heard the news, don’t know if it’s true. Rumor has it I may not be invited if I don’t put my daughter back on air. Can u believe?”

Perhaps someone should inform Dina the show is about the women and their families. Without a husband or daughter on the show, she really isn’t bringing much to the table.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST NEWS? DO YOU WANT KIM G ON THE SHOW? DO YOU WANT DINA BACK?

The Hills are alive with the Giudice indeed. Airing last night was Episode 15 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which might or might not have been one of the more boring episodes this season.

What did we learn last night? Well for one, ‘Ethninticity’ is a word according to Danielle Staub, Caroline Manzo finds it cute and adorable when Joe Giudice decides to throw a temper tantrum and go on a cursing rampage around kids, and Jacqueline Laurita really really cares about “old people.”

The episode starts out with the families as they get ready to dock in Naples. We immediately see a very cranky Joe and Teresa tries to convince us the source of this is that Joe doesn’t like being away from his business for a week. They all get on the bus, and Caroline tells us she’s annoyed by the Giudice children. Teresa however makes it clear she is not responsible for Caroline’s funky mood.

Danielle and her eyebrows attempt a heart to heart with her daughters, as she wants to discuss her birth mother. But before getting to the main topic, Danielle takes us down a trip on victims’ memory lane, rehashing Kim G’s betrayal and Teresa’s big mouth. And at the end of this convo, I’m still uncertain what the point of Danielle’s sit down with her daughters was. This just seems like an opportunity for Danielle to share her woe-is-me-Kim G-betrayed-me sob story. We do find out Danielle’s mother had her at age 15, but something tells me her daughters already knew that.

The families go out to dinner and we see the men eating “like they were going to jail.” Joe mentions they might have to hike it when visiting his family the next day. Jacqueline is immediately concerned as she realizes babies and old people do not know how to hike. Teresa however assures us in her interview that all will be well as Italy also has babies and old people, who hike everyday.

Danielle‘s favorite ex-con Danny decides to pay her a visit and informs her the others are gone to Italy. Danielle, who has had to suffer the last couple of weeks/months without a panini, is happy as she can now drive over to the market in Franklin Lakes without having to fear for her life. Danny randomly and oddly brings up Ashley, stating he has met some of her friends who have offered to help him. Help with what exactly? We’re not told. Danielle immediately goes on an Ashley bashing rampage. “She doesn’t have friends, she’s got terroristic tendencies,” said former prostitution whore/kidnapper Danielle.

Danny decides he needs to keep tabs on the then teenage Ashley, and Danielle encourages this because Ashley’s “got a special kind of crazy,” says the nutty pot.

We are now back in Italy and as the families get ready to leave for Joe’s hometown, the cursing resumes as the cranky and bankrupt Joe complains about the prices of things. Perhaps someone should inform Joe luxurious trips to Italy don’t come cheap. But then again Joe isn’t quite used to taking responsibility for his debts.

And at this point, I wonder just how much Bravo is shelling out for this fancy trip. As I said earlier, Bravo typically foots the bill for the ladies from the Housewives franchise to take a trip each season. My guess is Bravo was not willing to cover the expenses for the kids, grand parents and other family members involved in this trip, which would explain Joe’s outbursts. Which would then also mean the bankrupt and suppose to be broke Giudices continued to live beyond their means by bringing their whole family to Italy. What I wouldn’t do to know the amount of debt the Giudices have racked up since filing for bankruptcy back in October.

Teresa Giudice

Not that you needed any more reasons for your disgust dislike of Teresa Giudice, but we’re about to give you 60,000 more.

The NYPost is reporting today that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star celebrated being debt free by going on a $60,000 spending spree, after filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt back in October, 2009.

The shocker hasn’t even come yet. According to the Post, Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, just days after filing bankruptcy. Just days folks…. Unbelievable.

This little tidbit came out yesterday as the morons Giudices had their attorney James Kridel file a court document with receipts that detailed the irresponsible spending, as a way to show the court that some of their auction items were purchased after their filing. The Post reports even Kridel seemed at a loss for words when trying to explain the asinine spending to Judge Morris Stern, saying he knew the documents presented “a dilemma” and that the Judge might view it as “conspicuous consumption.” Ya think?

“These were not Ikea-purchased furniture items,” Judge Stern said. “These were from high-end design stores.”

As we reported yesterday, the judge refused to stop the public auction of the Giudices home items, but postponed it to Oct. 3. Bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, who has accused the Giudices of concealing assets, was also present during the hearing and stated that right before their bankruptcy filing, the Giudices purchased $21,000 worth of furniture and paid off a total of $11,000 of that amount just two days before filing.

And there’s more folks! While Teresa refused to comment on her irresponsible wasteful disgusting spending spree, hubby Joe, who is said to have been sweating profusely, got a little testy at the reporters. “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!” stated an angry Joe outside of the courtroom.

And somewhere in America, an average couple is holding multiple jobs to keep a roof over their heads, feed their kids, and pay off their debt, while the Giudices get to remain debt free and live in their $5 mil mansion! Surely this has to be criminal…

UPDATE: Teresa’s lawyer James Kridel tries to explain the unbelievable spending spree she went on just days after filing bankruptcy.“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” her attorney tells PEOPLE. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.”

It doesn’t end there. Kridel then tries to explain why Teresa needed to buy $60,000 worth of furniture while also acknowledging just how incredibly awful and disgusting this makes his client look. “She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” says Kridel. “It’s a big house and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.” No Kridel, it doesn’t, not by a long shot.

Must say it’s quite interesting that Teresa managed to receive her book advance just a few days after filing bankruptcy.

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

As the end of the season nears, a new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey titled ‘Hills Are Alive With Giudice’ airs tonight.

As the housewives continue their overseas vacation, some of the ladies have trouble hiding their foul moods. Will Teresa’s rambunctious young ones ruin the trip for the other families or will Teresa be able to control the girls? Meanwhile, back in Franklin Lakes Danielle enjoys the freedom of knowing the other women are out of the country. Heading out to lunch with Danny, Danielle opens up about her fears of being ambushed by the other housewives. Will Danielle have to run for cover once the ladies return or will there ever be Housewife a truce? Find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On to the big news of the day. The Star-Ledger is reporting that Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe Giudice have been able to get a postponement on their scheduled Aug 22 auction.

The auction for the couple, pictured above during their court appearance this morning, has now been set for October 3. According to the Ledger, the Giudices appeared in Newark this morning before U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Morris, who stated he would allow the postponement of the auction to allow for a review of which items can be sold. The judge however made it clear this is not to cancel the auction.

The Star-Ledger reports the Giudices objected to the sales of a number of items in the auction, including children’s toys, beds and antique accessories. They reportedly feared that some used personal property would fetch far less than it would cost to replace it.

The Judge agreed that their children’s items should be removed from the auction list, and has appointed a court-appointed trustee and auction agent to meet with the Giudices and go through every item to decide what items will be put up for sale and which will remain exempt.

Guess those of us interested in that nice gas range will have to wait a few more weeks.

Danielle Staub

Breaking newsLife&Style is now reporting that Bravo has fired Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The magazine doesn’t give a reason for the firing as an insider tells the mag, “Danielle was told that she would not be returning for a third season.” Adding that Danielle finding out she was fired “came as a complete shock, and she thought she was definitely going to return to the successful Bravo series.”

This might be the reason Danielle mentioned she was working on a reality show for herself a week ago. The timing of this also makes sense as the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives will likely start filming any day now.

Bravo did not have a comment for this news, telling Life&Style, “Bravo does not comment on casting of upcoming seasons of Housewives while current seasons are still airing.” Danielle’s booking agent also had “no comment” on Danielle’s status on the show though Danielle was likely the one who leaked this story.

Could this have to do with the lawsuit Danielle planned against her castmates? Or the threats from her co-stars that they would not return if Danielle did? Perhaps something happened during the reunion taping. We will be bringing you more updates as soon as they become available. (Thanks to our reader I’mJustSaying for this link).

UPDATE – Wanted to add that Life&Style has always proven to be a very reputable source when it comes to Housewives news.

UPDATE #2 – HollywoodLife is now reporting that a source close to Danielle says the firing report is just a rumor. “Danielle has no clue if she’s signed on for season three, none of the girls do,” says the source, adding that “there aren’t any firm negotiations going on until mid-September.” Based on track records, I am more inclined to believe the Life&Style story.

UPDATE #3 – Danielle is speaking out on the firing rumors in a statement posted on her twitter page. She doesn’t confirm or deny the firing, only giving out a cryptic message.

“Actually, I’m not even thinking about season 3 right now as I am considering many incredible options that have been presented to me,” said Staub. “Right now I just want to let fans know that we have a fantastic finale coming up next week and explosive reunion shows on August 30 and September 6. Don’t worry next year, I’ll still be the one you either love to hate or hate to love.”

And the plot thickens…

UPDATE #4 - PEOPLE magazine, arguable the most reputable entertainment outlet around, says they have learned Danielle “is likely leaving the show after the end of Season 2 and is not expected to participate in a third season.”

UPDATE #5 – RadarOnline is also giving details of Danielle’s proposed spin off show which a source tells them is being produced by Sirens Media, the same company behind the Real Housewives of NJ.

“A spin off is in the works,” a source told Radar. The deal is still in talks while a source says it will “loosely reflect the character she started on the Real Housewives and the future of her career, her high-profile life, her kids, her being a ‘mom-ager.’ But she also has a normal life with her assistant and the whole team surrounding her.”

So it seems Bravo might be firing Danielle to make way for a spin off show for her a la Bethenny Frankel.

Teresa Giudice

With one week left until her very humiliating public auction, court papers show the value of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s home contents isn’t worth as much as most would think.

According to RadarOnline, court documents show the A. Atkins Appraisal Corporation predicted the forced sale value of Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice’s home items to total only $51,160.  A very tiny amount compared to her massive debt of $11 million.

The amount is even more surprising considering pretty much everything Teresa owns is being auctioned off, including her bedroom set, refrigerators, gas range, televisions, furniture, a boat, and even the toys belonging to her kids.

The Giudices, who are being accused of perjury for allegedly failing to disclose some of their assets, also had their wedding bands appraised to the amount of $150 for Teresa’s 14 kt. yellow gold band, and $240 for Joe’s 14 kt. white gold wedding band.

Evidently, the Giudices want the world to believe that while they squandered millions of dollars, and racked up $11 million in debt living beyond their means, they somehow forgot to upgrade their wedding bands.  It’s a wonder these two geniuses are being accused of concealing assets.

Despite having their lawyer file an objection, the auction is still set for August 22.


Albie Manzo and Angelina

Jersey Shore show outcast Angelina Pivarnick is now telling RadarOnline she has developed a major crush on the hotness known as Albie Manzo. Sighs, can you blame her?

Angelina and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member are pictured above after meeting this weeked at the Beatstock 2010 music festival in New Jersey. “He is adorable, I have the biggest crush [on him],” Angelina told Radar.

“I was hanging out with him at the beach bash and he kept asking if he could get me drinks,” Angelina said. After she got booed onstage, Albie texted her a comforting note: “You did a great job. I got your back girl.”

Angelina however has a boyfriend, but states the possibility of a new romance is in the air, as she believes Albie is interested too. “He texted me after, ’Hey what are you doing? You’re so cute, lets hang out tonight.’”

A friend of Albie’s tells Radar:”He was happy to meet her and thought she was a cool girl.”

Goodluck to Angelina. She might need it trying to get past Mama Bear Manzo.




In other Jersey Shore news, the show’s break out star Snooki isn’t taking too well to the President saying he didn’t know who she was during his recent appearance of The View talk show.

Snooki, who might or might not be getting an inflated ego, tells E! News – “I know he knows who I am… Why did he have to lie and say he didn’t know me? He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff and now he doesn’t know who I am? He has to stop lying.”

What Snooki is referring to was back in May at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner when President Obama joked about a tanning tax, saying “the following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.”

Perhaps someone should inform Snooki the President has speech writers…

And finally the ratings of Jersey Shore this season can only be described as nothing short of amazing. The second season’s premiere episode averaged over 5.3 million viewers, while last week’s episode averaged 5 million viewers. No wonder MTV is currently filming the 3rd season with the same cast.

Danielle Staub and Lori MichaelsKim Granatell aka Kim G

A lot to report on the Real Housewives of New Jersey today, and when we say a lot, we mean A LOT.

We’ll start off with Danielle Staub, who hosted a party for her 48th birthday last night at NYC’s Scores strip club. The former stripper/escort however took some time away from the pole her party to talk to the press, during which she told NBC Newyork she’s in the works of creating her own spin-off reality show.

“It will definitely be a lot more of her (gal pal Lori Michaels) and I and definitely my kids,” Danielle told the site. “There will be a lot of questions that will be answered.”

And when asked about the status of her relationship with faux girlfriend Lori, “We’re exclusively committable,” answered Danielle while holding Lori’s hand. 

The HollywoodLife is also reporting today that Danielle’s former BFF, three-faced Kim Granatell, tried to crash Danielle’s strip club party last night.

According to the site, right as Danielle was about to walk into her party, Kim G., pictured above in front of Daniele’s party last night, arrived with an entire entourage in tow even though she wasn’t invited. Danielle was reportedly blindsided and refused to walk in until Kim G. was escorted off the premises. “It took a little while but Kim finally got into her black Bentley and sped off,” says the site.


Dina Manzo

Next up is Dina Manzo, who bowed out of the Bravo hit show mid season. According to the Crushable site via Life&Style magazine, Dina did not attend the recent taping of the reunion show. Dina’s reason for being a no show? She wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle.

Teresa Giudice also talked to the mag about the reunion taping. “The reunion was crazy, exhausting and unbelievable,” Teresa tells Life & Style. Andy Cohen also chimes in saying, “It was nuts, absolutely nuts!”

Life & Style reports that taping lasted nearly 12 emotionally-draining hours.

According to a Bravo press release, the reunion will be in two parts airing August 30 and September 6. The show’s finale will air August 23.

 

Teresa Giudice Children

And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.

“They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”

Teresa also shares her plan of writing another book with the magazine, while revealing she hasn’t lost all the weight she gained during her last pregnancy. “I haven’t lost it all yet!” she says. “I still have about 10 pounds to go.
