According to the NYPost, Chris and Law-School HottyAlbie Manzo have enlisted the help of Patti Stanger to help them find their matches. And what are the boys looking for in a mate? A source tells the Post they are interested in “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls.”
Chris (pictured left) currently works at the family-owned Brownstone in Paterson, NJ, while Albie, 23, attends law school. While the kids are not millionaires, not yet at least, the Post reports Caroline and Patti are old friends from Jersey. Should be a fun episode to watch.
The 4th season of Millionaire Matchmaker is currently being filmed in NYC.
Despite last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey bringing us stripper poles and a mother-daughter fight, the topic everyone is talking about this morning is Dina Manzo’s exit from the Bravo show.
Dina, 38, tells UsWeekly Danielle Staub is the sole reason she left the show. “I would say 99.9 percent is because of Danielle [Staub], but the other .1 percent was drama created by her,” said Dina. The final straw came when Danielle, 47, showed up to the Manzo’s Brownstone for a charity event along with some ex-cons. Danielle ended up causing a ruckus while her escort Danny hurled a gay slur at Chris Manzo, Dina’s nephew.
“That whole night at The Brownstone just put me over the edge,” shares Dina. “Danielle became all we ever talked about! I wanted to film some fun stuff. I thought I signed on for a nice family show and it really turned in a different direction.”
Dina also made a special appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens last night with Andy Cohen, during which she made some very funny interesting jokes at the expense of Danielle. Andy asked her about Danielle’s claim that Dina was doing nails when she first met her. Dina did acknowledge she once did nails, but she was 17 at the time, asking “What should I have been a stripper” instead? Good one Dina.
Another great question that came up was why Dina’s daughter, Lexi, was not on the show this season. Oddly enough, Lexi appeared on WWH last night. If you recall, Danielle claimed earlier this year that Dina forged her ex-husbands signature the first season to get Lexi on the show, and that Lexi wasn’t on the show this season because Dina didn’t have her ex’s permission. Dina however said last night the reason her daughter wasn’t on the show was because she didn’t like the prostitution whore direction the show was going in.
Five Questions/Observations about last night’s show (Brief Recap) -
1) While it’s understandable Dina and the NJ ladies want Danielle out of their lives, will someone please inform them they would have no show without Danielle. Yes Danielle is all kinds of nuts, she is however the one making the show somewhat interesting.
2) Did I miss a press release? Is Kim G. the new housewife? She is obviously auditioning for a spot on the show.
3) Doesn’t it seem like Danielle has her own show on the NJ Housewives show? You know the one with all her ex-con friends and “rich” girlfriends. Perhaps Bravo will give her a spin-off, she seems to have really created her own little mini-show on the show.
4) Does Danielle really expect us to believe she was not aware she was being taped on Steve‘s cell phone? Were we also to buy her whole I’m too scared to get back into the dating world routine? This coming from a woman who’s porn videosex tape was just released. And how gross was the stripper pole scene with Danielle’s ex-con friends ogling at her?
5) Now that Dina is gone, will Bravo please give us a new NJ housewife?
Bonus – Did anyone else have nightmares about Grandma Wrinkles (Dina’s cat) last night?
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SHOW? ARE YOU SAD TO SEE DINA LEAVE?
Tonight marks an all new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and as Bravo promises, we will see one of the NJ housewives leave the show for-ever! (cue up dramatic music).
So what else can we expect tonight? Just after Ashley moves back home, the drama starts back up with mom Jacqueline. While the guys try to enjoy a relaxing poker night, Ashley refuses to speak with her mother. Danielle’s sex tape drama will also be brought up in tonight’s show. You know, that other sex tape involving her and her ex Steve Zalewski, who will be appearing once again on tonight’s show.
Teresa Takes Home Off The Market – In other NJ news, just 24 hours after her home appeared for sale on multiple Realtor websites, Teresa Giudice tweeted to her fans that her home was “NOT FOR SALE.” Surely enough, the listing for Teresa’s home was yanked off these websites. So what gives? Well no one knows, perhaps Teresa and hubby Joe received some more “assistance” from their family members who reportedly supply them with $10,000 a month.
One of our smart readers however pointed out that “a broker is not going to place a property in the MLS, without a listing agreement from the seller,” meaning Teresa and her hubby had to have signed off the listing.
Danielle’s Sex Tape Comes Out Today - Today is the release date of the infamous sex tapeno one wanted to see. Danielle is described as being the “horniest housewife.” It will be interesting to see how Danielle’s tape fares on the market considering most of the housewives’ fan base consists of women. Dina Manzo also did a new interview during which she had some harsh words for Danielle. “This doesn’t shock me,” Dina said. “I feel horrible for her kids. Horrible. I wanted to start a ‘save Jillian campaign.’ The younger daughter, her face just breaks my heart.”
Dina then goes on to make a good point when she says, “Everything a parent does, they should think of their children first. I know that’s what I do.”
Danielle’s Home On The Market – Danielle’s home has been listed for the price of $1.095 million. According to the listing, it was ordered by the courts due to Danielle’s divorce settlement. Once the sale is done, Danielle and her ex-husband Tom Staub, will split the proceeds.
Who’s Leaving The Show? - This shouldn’t be a spoiler as multiple media outlets have reported Dina Manzo will be the exiting housewife. However neither Bravo nor Dina has yet to confirm this news. Dina will also be appearing on Watch What Happens tonight, alongside Ramona Singer.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THESE STORIES AND TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
The latest is now that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who famously declared on the show’s 1st season that living in a previously-owned home was “gross,” has listed her famous New Jersey home for sale. The asking price? A cool $3,999,000.
Oddly enough, Teresa and hubby Joe declared the home value to be $1.7 million in their October 2009 bankruptcy filing. Guess the home value must have doubled since last year.
There are also conflicting reports on the status of the home, which they can be seen living in on the Bravo reality show. A previous report by the NYPost stated the bank had started foreclosure proceedings on the extensive marble home. Perhaps trying to sell the home for a $2.3 million profit is their last ditch attempt to save it and make some quick change.
And a new report by the NYPost today claims Teresa is capitalizing off her new bankruptcy fame. According to the Post, Teresa will be appearing in next week’s InTouch magazine to talk about her body and workout routine. Teresa is said to be getting paid less than $10,000 for the story. The post however claims the article will not focus on her financial woes.
UPDATE - Teresa is now claiming via her twitter page, that her home is not up for sale. She tweeted, “HUGE NEWS CORRECTION-I’m telling you guys first and directly…MY HOUSE IS NOT FOR SALE!!! Sorry if you were dreaming of moving in w/ me. xx”
Perhaps more of that “family assistance” has come in for she and Joe, as houses just don’t magically appear on real estates websites for sale.
Danielle, who reveals her past as a stripper and escort in her memoir – The Naked Truth, is now claiming she was blackmailed for months over her sex tape.
In a new interview with HollywoodLife, the mother of two opens up about the sex tape. “I had a sexual relationship that was supposed to remain private,” claims Danielle, who has done nothing to try to stop the release of the tape. “I was approached and I’ve been being blackmailed for quite some time and there’s NOTHING I could do to shut it down.”
Right Danielle. She also denies claims that she leaked her own sex tape. “I would never release my own sex tape. I would never do such a thing,” she says adamantly. “It’s not true that I made the film to be released to the public,” she says. “I’m holding the camera in my hand and taking pictures of myself so I don’t know why people think the footage is high quality.”
So says Danielle who filmed the sex tape months after the airing of the first season of the Real Housewives of NJ. As we have reported, all signs point to Danielle being behind the so called “leak “and “theft” of the sex tape.
Porn star Reality star Danielle Staubis finally breaking her silence on her soon to be released sex tape.
The 47-year-old Real Housewives of New Jersey star was caught running errands yesterday and was briefly interviewed by TMZ. In the impromptu interview, Danielle claims the tape was stolen but admits she won’t be fighting it’s release. Danielle also believes her sex tape will outsell that of E!’s Kendra Wilkinson, because her tape has something Kendra’s tape doesn’t……herself!
Danielle – “You know that’s a good question because I haven’t seen hers. I haven’t seen mine either but I do know I was in it, so if it’s going to do anything, I would hope mine would do better, (laughs) I don’t know how to answer that.”
TMZ – Are you going to fight its release?
Danielle – “Um I did try to in the beginning but I just decided you know what if you can’t beat them, join them, so what am I left to do? It wasn’t something that I would have chose to have released but it’s out there and there’s nothing I can do about it.”
Interesting she has all these “ums” in front of her lies answers. When asked about the unidentified man in the sex tape with her, Danielle shares that communication with him is fine, and to the best of her knowledge, he had nothing to do with it. She however wouldn’t reveal the guy’s identity.
She was also asked about her castmate’s thoughts on the tape, Danielle replied, “Oh I don’t care what they say ever about me.”
Also released today is a 38 second video preview of the sex tape on the site DanielleStaubRaw.com. While the preview clip contains no nudity, it might not be safe for work. For a $29.95 monthly subscription, you will however be able to view the tape in its entirety when its released Monday, June 14th.
In the preview clip, which looks more like a porno movie than a leaked sex tape, Danielle can be seen mostly talking and smiling into the camera. And according to our poll from yesterday, an astonishing 98% of you believe Danielle leaked out this sex tape. Well, can’t say we disagree with you all.
Danielle Staub made her first public appearance last night since news of her new sex tape hit. The picture above was taken at the one year birthday celebration for Scores in New York City. And in case you’re wondering, Scores is a strip club.
TMZ has also published graphic photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star today. The photos show the 46-year-old mother of two smiling into the camera while sometimes holding up the camera herself. Eight of those images are below. The photos are tagged with Daniellestaubraw.com(the site is not yet up), where her sex tape will ultimately be released next Monday on June 14th.
Speaking out against Danielle now is her co-star Jacqueline Laurita. Jackqueline tells TMZ, “I’d be very happy if [Staub] left our show … Why doesn’t she just leave and go do porn?” Adding, “Danielle has total disregard for how [the tape] will affect her daughters’ impressionable years.”
The question everyone has now seems to be did Danielle leak her own sex tape? Well Jacqueline seems to think so, as she also took to her twitter to express what most of us suspect. She tweeted, “Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it’s disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them.”
Can’t say we disagree with Jacqueline. Why is Danielle the likely culprit behind this sex tape leak? Well for one, Hustler revealed this sex tape was shot last September, just a few months after she won an injunction to stop the release of her first tape with Steve Zalewski. Perhaps she wasn’t happy with that tape content, as it only included an oral sex scene shot with a cell phone camera. The new tape however includes 75 minutes of footage.
Another clue? As we have previously reported, porn companies cannot release a sex tape of a public figure without some kind of authorization, meaning Danielle and yes Kendra Wilkinson too, had to sign off on a release. Plus when you see the images from the tape, well it become more obvious.

Well it’s now June, and TMZ is confirming today that Hustler will be releasing the graphic sex tape on June 14th, which is next Monday. The big shocker? This sex tape was shot in September 2009, just months after Danielle was able to successfully stop the release of a previous sex tape she made with her ex Steve Zalewski.
Steve is Danielle’s boy toy from season 1 of the show, and Steve will coincidentally be appearing on next week’s episode to discuss the first sex tape with Danielle’s co-star Jacqueline Laurita. According to Steve, his sex tape with Danielle was only an oral sex scene.
As for what’s on the new sex tape? According to CrabbyGoLightly.com, Danielle and her pierced you know what will be seen engaging in “some missionary, some doggy style, and some pile-driving” with the unidentified male in the 45 minute tape. The crabbygolightly site claims, “You really don’t see her partner’s face, just his condom-covered member. At least she’s practicing safe sex.”
The man on the sex tape has yet to be identified. And in case you’re wondering, most adult companies do not release sex tapes without the consent of the star, meaning there’s a 99.98% chance Danielle has authorized the release of this tape. Let’s all hope that Danielle, who happens to be a mother of two daughters, is being compensated well for selling her soul it.
The above picture of Teresa was taken last night (and yes she really wore that outfit) at a Project Ladybug benefit in Paterson, NJ. UsWeekly was able to interview Teresa and of course the hot topic was her bankruptcy filing.
“I have moral support; I have my daughters and my husband. As long as we’re in good health, that’s all we can do. I think this kind of situation is all over the world,” said Teresa who also claims her financial issues will be addressed on a feature episode of the Bravo show.
Teresa also revealed she contemplated even showing up to the event in light of negative press. “I was like, ‘Should I go?’” she told Us. “I think that by me being here, hopefully everybody will see that I’m just trying to do the best I can.”

News of Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt sent the web buzzing on Saturday. After sending out a message via twitter to tell her fans she was “fine,” Teresa is now once again breaking her silence in a statement to PEOPLE magazine.
“While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion,” said the Real Housewives of New Jersey star. “What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband’s real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a ‘fresh start.’”
Not quite sure what Teresa means by “distortion” considering the debt figures came directly from the bankruptcy court papers she filed with her husband Joe Giudice. Teresa, 38, and Joe filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which requires liquidation of assets in order to pay creditors.
Amongst Teresa’s irresponsible debt?
$104,000 Credit Cards debt including $20,000 to Bloomingdale’s, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom
$1,280 monthly payment for Cadillac Escalade
$85,600 Home repairs
$12,000 Fertility treatments
And despite Bravo’s Andy Cohen falsely proclaiming on the Today Show this morning that Teresa’s $1.8 million home was not in foreclosure, the NYPost reports the banks have started the foreclosure proceedings on the NJ home. This is the home Teresa was shown moving into during the first season of the NJ Housewives.
Andy also revealed one of the upcoming episodes will feature Teresa throwing an extravagant housewarming party. “When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes,” says Teresa. “We are in that process.”
Just last week, Teresa was shown bragging about spending a lot of money on her daughter’s birthday party. It will definitely be interesting to see the public’s reaction to Teresa’s frivolous spending as the show moves along.
