We also get to see the birth of Teresa’s fourth daughter, the debut of Danielle’s daughter, Christine Staub, on the catwalk at New York Fashion show, plus a trip by most of the women to Venice, Italy. Oh yeah, there are also stripper poles, police officers, and some boxing.
The New Jersey Star-Ledger is reporting that some of the New Jersey housewives including Teresa Guidice and Jacqueline Laurita (photographed above) decided to have dinner with Danielle’s ex husband Kevin Maher, who also happens to be the man behind “Cop Without A Badge” — the book that outed Danielle’s past as an escort and drug user.
Kevin is the man on the far right, and the man on the far left is Charles Kipps, who also helped write the book. Also at this dinner were Joe Giudice, Chris Laurita and Albie Manzo, the son of Caroline Manzo.
So what was the point of all this? Well it was all apparently to get answers about Danielle’s past. Danielle had denied being a “coke whore” and claimed Kevin “brutalized and terrorized” her during their brief marriage. A claim Kevin doesn’t deny, saying, “I did hit her. I’m not proud of it.”
Well after this dinner, Jacqueline tweeted, “everything was answered, i have clarity. moving on now!” She later added, “Just so this talk of crazy ends. Ex took a polygraph to clear his name and crazy is a big time liar. That’s my closure. Let’s all move on.” Not to be outdone by Jacque, Teresa also tweeted the following – “omg what am i hearing, music to my ears…she is certifiable…”
Bravo held their 2010 Upfront Party at theSkylight Studio this week in NYC, and all of our favorite Housewives as well as other Bravolebrities were sure to be in attendance.
The upfront party is when Bravo announces what is to come during their next season of television.
OK magazine was there and was able to report some behind the scenes moments. Representing the Real Housewives of Orange County were Alexis Bellino, Lynne Curtin and Gretchen Rossi, who did not seem phased by their new competition – the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. The OC ladies joked that they did hear the Beverly Hills Housewives all have their own private jets.
The Real Housewives of NYC’s Jill Zarin, Ramona Singer and Alex McCord hit the red carpet together during which Jill would not reveal whether or not she and Bethenny will reconcile, simply saying “watch the show.”
Kelly Bensimon also hit the red carpet with LuAnn De Lesseps, and when asked how she thinks Bethenny will be as a mom, she replied, “I can’t really speak to that. I’m sorry.”
The Real Housewives of Atlanta were the only housewives franchise to all walk the red carpet together. The Atlanta ladies are reportedly getting along better these days.
Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.“
Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.
Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week.

The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.
Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”
Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions. “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

The latest is that Ashley Holmes, the 19 year old daughter of her costar Jacqueline Laurita, was found guilty of assaulting Danielle. She was fined $189, including $33 court costs, by Wayne Court Judge Lawrence Katz on Friday. As we reported back in December, Ashley was arrested for pulling out Danielle’s hair extensions during a fight that took place November 11th.
The argument was between Jacqueline, Teresa Giudice and Danielle. Ashley thought her mom was being attacked by Danielle, and then proceeded to attack her and pull out her hair extensions. Ashley went on to confess to the assault.
“Danielle did the crime and the time,” a ‘source’ tells Us. “Now Ashley has to.”
The fight was taped by Bravo and will appear on the upcoming season of the NJ Housewives series. Sighs, and just when you thought the table flipping could not be topped.
“I’m abstinent now,” she reveals to PEOPLE. “I realized that with abstinence, if you really, really believe in yourself like I do, you discover your own self-worth. Abstinence means you refrain from any sex — thinking about it, doing it — even to yourself! I’m a born-again virgin.”
Danielle, who’s past as an escort and drug user was revealed during the last season of the New Jersey Housewives series, claims it’s been “over a year-and-a-half” since she’s had sex. “I am saving myself for marriage. I didn’t do it the first two times but I learned from my mistakes. So now, it’s okay to wait,” she says.
So does this mean she’s looking to get married right away? “Marriage is a goal of mine but not because I need it, but because I want it. It’s a big difference.” Danielle reveals she’s however not out there prowling for a Mr. Right, “I will never find him, he’ll find me. I think the right one will see me. I want old-fashioned courting.”
In the meantime, Danielle is keeping herself very busy while abstaining from sex. It might be safe to say abstinence has opened up a whole lot of free time for the mother of two. Danielle says she is now focused on managing her daughter’s new found career as Christine Staubis now an IMG model, and she plans on releasing her autobiography, The Naked Truth, in the spring.
And she’s not stopping there. Danielle will also be releasing a fitness and nutrition video, as well as an athletic-inspired clothing line in the spring. And oh yeah, the 2nd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to premier sometime during the spring.
