“Danielle is crazy about Lori, but doesn’t know she’s seeing another woman,” a source said. “Lori is a proud, openly gay woman, and the relationship with Danielle is just an amusing sidetrack for her. She’s really with Courtney.”
The source adds, “And if Danielle expects something serious and long-lasting with Lori, she’s going to end up being one heartbroken housewife.” A picture of Courtney Lynch is below courtesy NJ.com. She is the dancer on the left.
In other NJ news, TMZ is reporting this morning that Bravo has put the kibosh on a classy table flipping contest that was set to be hosted by the always classy Teresa Giudice.
The reason? Apparently Bravo thought it was a dumb PR move. The club owner of The Funkey Monkey in Delaware tells TMZ they will now be holding a Teresa look alike contest.
Just days after TMZ posted the video, which shows Caroline admitting she gave Bravo an ultimatum that she would not return to the show if Danielle Staub did, Zap2It is reporting today that Caroline is fighting to get the video taken off the net. Wonder why?
Zap2It reports that sources close to Caroline tell them she’s working with Bravo to try and get the video pulled, though she’s uncertain TMZ will cooperate.
As for the reason Caroline wants the video off the web, a source says it’s not because she doesn’t stand by what she said or that she’s scared of Danielle, but rather because she wants the “Danielle Drama” over with and completely out of her life.
In other NJ news, days after Life&Style broke the story of Danielle Staub’s Range Rover getting repossessed, a rep for the fired Bravo housewife is now denying the story to HollywoodLife, claiming the story is “untrue.”
“As for false statement out there saying her truck was repossessed this weekend … the lease was up and she turned it in … plain and simple,” claims Danielle’s rep. Riiiight.

RadarOnline is reporting today that Joe Giudice has turned himself in to begin serving his 10-day jail sentence.
The Lincoln Park Police Department confirms that Joe, husband of Real Housewives of NJ star Teresa Giudice, turned himself in at 9 a.m. this morning, just days after a judge ordered him to do jail time for driving with a suspended driver’s license. Joe has been transferred to the Morris County Correctional Facility where he will be serving the 10-day sentence.
According to Radar, Joe will be alone in an 8 by 10 foot cell. “Since it’s a high profile case and he has a short stay he will be in the cell alone,” says a source. Who knew appearing on a housewives series made someone “high profile.”
Radar is also reporting that Joe isn’t too worried about doing his hard time. He reportedly told a family member this morning that jail is just like a “vacation”.
“He doesn’t care if he goes to jail because he said then he gets paid because the magazines will want his story,” a source told Radar. “He said he’ll be on vacation and getting paid at the same time.” Guess we should be expecting a “Joe Goes To Jail!” headline on the cover of a weekly magazine any day now, along with an exclusive interview and exclusive jail photos.

When news of the firing of Danielle Staub hit weeks ago, a few media outlets revealed the reason was an ultimatum given to Bravo by the Manzos.
Well, we can now confirm today that ultimatum is indeed true and fact. TMZ obtained a video of Caroline Manzo during her on camera deposition in the defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.
In the video, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals she delivered a strict ultimatum to the show’s producers — if Danielle returned for another season … she’d quit the show.
“I did tell Bravo and Sirens that there is no amount of money you could put on the table for me next year,” said Caroline, adding that “if Danielle Staub is on the show, I am out because my integrity means too much to me … so for Season 3, they know it’s either Danielle or myself.”

Life&Style magazine is reporting that at approximately 11am EST Saturday morning, Danielle Staub had her Range Rover repossessed at the house she had been staying at.
“You should have seen the begging,” an eyewitness tells Life & Style. “Danielle pleaded with the repo guys but they had their job to do, and they did it.”
Life&Style reports Danielle has been having financial troubles since the court took over her final checks from the Bravo network. She fell behind on her car payments and is reportedly penniless. No word on why the court took control of Danielle’s checks.
Joe Giudice has been sentenced to 10 days in jail reports RadarOnline.
According to Radar, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star was sentenced this Wednesday. The sentence was in regards to the DUI Joe received back in January, the same one that was featured on the show.
Radar reports the jail sentence is a result of Joe driving with a suspended license. In addition to the 10 days in jail, Joe was also fined $1,000, with his license being suspended for at least another year. If you recall, Joe was also sentenced earlier this year for the actual DUI. The Judge in the DUI case imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service.
Joe is scheduled to begin serving his sentence next week. The Giudices have yet to comment on this though something tells us Teresa is very devastated she will have to go 10 days with no hanky panky from Joe.
In what some fans of the show saw coming from a mile away, RadarOnline is reporting today that there is a major rift between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice.
According to RadarOnline, Caroline and Teresa are now on the outs because Caroline is tired of all of Teresa’s drama. A source even tells the site the two ladies hate each other! “Caroline is not talking to Teresa,” says an insider to Radar. “She is just tired of all the drama. She is just keeping her distance. She doesn’t mind if Teresa is on the show, but they all hate each other now.”
The insider adds, “She feels that Teresa has gotten to carried away with everything and she is just aggravated with her.” Radar also reiterates the news that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, whom she hates, will be on the show next season. Must say season 3 of the NJ Housewives is looking good right about now.
This reported rift between Caroline and Teresa doesn’t come as a surprise, as the two ladies have had some rather interesting things to say regarding the other’s behavior this season.
Here’s what Teresa wrote in her Bravo blog regarding Caroline’s complaints about her kids on the trip to Italy -
“I don’t know why Caroline was so crabby. I know she was sick before we left and in pain, but she could have stayed home like Dina. What did she think it was going to be like with 20 people and babies? It wasn’t a romantic honeymoon for her and Albert. I don’t know why that shocked her. And I’m sorry she felt uncomfortable when we were all speaking Italian, but hello, it’s Italy! Her Italian grandfather might not have taught her Italian, but I think she’s had plenty of time over the years to learn it if she wanted to!”
And Below is what Caroline had to say in her blog about Teresa’s outburst on part 1 of the reunion show -
“First things first. I expected yelling, screaming, and tears. I NEVER expected Andy to get tossed like a rag doll. I was in complete shock when that happened. Actually, I had to compose myself because I wanted to cry. Seriously, I did. When Teresa jumped off the couch and approached Danielle it was literally within the first ten minutes of filming. The only thing going through my mind at that moment, beyond the obvious WTF is going on, was that I couldn’t sit through hours and hours of this. If this is happening now, what’s it going to be like when we get to the real issues? Thank God it never got to that level again, it was an ugly moment. Ugly, ugly, ugly.”
