Following in the footsteps of her husband, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice has also withdrawn her bankruptcy petition.

If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice shocked viewers back in 2010 when it was revealed that they filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt. Shortly afterwards, the two were accused of bankruptcy fraud by their trustee John Sywilok, who accused them of concealing assets and hiding income. By the way, concealing assets just happens to be a federal crime.

In a move to likely avoid persecution, Joe first withdrew his bankruptcy bid back in September, after pleading the fifth amendment during questioning by the trustee.

Following Joe’s move the Giudices’ lawyer told PEOPLE magazine that Teresa would soon follow, stating she felt “vindicated” to be voluntarily paying her remaining debts rather than go to jail have them discharged in bankruptcy court.

The NJ Star-Ledger is reporting that in addition to withdrawing her bankruptcy, Teresa has also settled the lawsuit by the trustee by acknowledging that she wishes to resolve Sywilok’s proceedings against her “without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without her making any further admissions.”

Teresa’s attorney Jim Kridel stated back in September that Teresa was now making enough money to pay off her debts, while also adding that most of the debt in the bankruptcy belonged to Joe. Safe to say the system won this go around.

In other RHONJ news, Tre’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga recently revealed she is now selling T-shirts with some of her catch phrases written on them such as “Thank you Jesus” and “On Display.”

Former prostitution whore and current sex tape queen Danielle Staub has now decided her next ploy to garner attention is to exploit the gay community.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star gave an interview to FOX news during which she proclaimed she is a part of the gay community. “I haven’t even begun my work in the gay community yet,” said Danielle. “I want to go to senate, I want to pass a bill and get gay marriage legalized. I go to events, I march in rallies. I’ve been a part of the gay community for 30 years.”

Oh but she doesn’t end there. When asked about her relationship with openly lesbian songwriter Lori Michaels, Danielle made sure to play coy and not give a straight answer, pun intended.

“I’m not ready to say that one way or the other,” she told Fox News. “Right now my focus is on my kids, but there is room for one more person in my world. Hopefully soon the world will see that.”

Danielle also took her attentionwhoredom to twitter when she referred to Lori as her girlfriend in a recent tweet. “Thank you everyone for supporting me with love and kindness in my song “Real Close” bless my gf Lori Michaels,” she wrote.

And it’s not over folks. Danielle also made sure she tweeted a photo of herself sitting on Lori’s lap. That photo is below.

One person who isn’t buying Danielle’s faux lesbian story? Her co-star Jacqueline Laurita, who tweeted the following on Monday night: “She just asked my friend at her new condo to introduce her to all her single MALE friends so I am as confused as she is apparently. ;0)”

And for all the folks who would like a peek at Danielle’s sex tape, The first 15 minutes of the explicit tape has been posted online for free by Perez Hilton. You can watch that by clicking here. Good luck, you will need it.


Speaking of attention whores, party planner Elvira Grau, who released a press release last week to falsely declare herself Dina Manzo’s replacement, seems to be basking in her 15 minutes of limelight.

Perhaps someone should have told Elvira with fame comes the price of negative press, but something tells us she is more than happy to pay this price.

The NYPost is reporting Elvira and her hubby James Grau owe over $300,000 to the IRS. Elvira, who boasted about having a luxurious lifestyle replete with nannies, maids, cooks and drivers, was slapped with massive state tax liens between January and March on various properties, including her $3 million mansion.

And despite bragging to Teresa Giudice about having a beach house, property records show Elvira and her husband don’t own any thing near a beach.

Despite the bad press, Elvira seems to be loving all the attention, bragging to RadarOnline, “I’m the ‘Crazy Bitch!’ I’m a hustler.” And though Bravo has denied Elvira is a new housewife, they do confirm she will be appearing in a few more episodes of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. No word yet on what Elvira will be doing in the upcoming episodes. Perhaps she will be helping Teresa plan a ‘We’re bankrupt but fabulous party.’ We kid, we kid.

Ali Fedotowsky graces this week’s cover of InTouch magazine with the headline, ‘Bachelorette Lies & Betrayal.’ Please note that this story contains some spoilers about the show, so please do not read any further if you do not want to know any spoilers.

The magazine touches on the men that will end up betraying Ali this season on The Bachelorette, case in point Justin Rego, who had not one, but two girlfriends while on the show. The not so big shocker comes when the mag claims the show’s producers might have knowingly set up Ali with unsuitable guys, simply to create drama for the show.

Ali’s mom, Beth Johnson, tells the mag that when it comes to falling in love, Ali has never had a specific physical type. “It doesn’t matter” to Ali what her dates look like. In fact, “Ali has dated guys who are unattractive in other people’s eyes. It is who they are inside that matters!”

Frank kissing girlfriend Nicole Caruso

And it seems the show’s producers decided to take advantage of Ali’s “open — and somewhat needy — nature” by steering her into the arms of more than one unsuitable guy. While it’s been widely reported that wrestler Justin will be sent home for two timing Ali, In Touch also reveals that nice guy manager Frank Neuschafer also has a major secret of his own.

“Frank was the early favorite because he had the first date of the season with Ali, but by the end of the show, women are going to hate him,” Bachelorette insider “Reality” Steve Carbone tells In Touch. According to Steve, Frank has a girlfriend back in Chicago whom he’s “still in love with.” And even though the producers were aware of this, they never warned Ali, 25, thus leaving her heartbroken and humiliated when she found out.

“Ali was left in the dark,” says Steve, who reveals that she went so far as to take Frank to Tahiti as one of her final three — only to have him tell her, in the midst of a super-romantic date, that his heart belongs to Nicole back home. “There was no rose ceremony — he just left,” Steve shares, adding that it was devastating for Ali.

There are however conflicting reports about Frank and this GF. While a previous report claims Frank and Nicole Caruso, 23, were broken up before he went on the show, Star magazine claims Frank was still with Nicole before leaving to do the show. The mag claims he only went on the Bachelorette to try to further his career.

“Frank wants a screenwriting career, and he assured her that he was only going on The Bachelorette for the show business exposure,” a friend of Nicole tells Star. “This whole business about Frank wistfully longing for a former girlfriend seems like a sham. He and Nicole were rock-solid when he left for the show, and I believe they still are. He never had any interest in Ali.”
