The latest with Tareq are his plans to now produce his own dating reality show! Apparently, many clueless women are just dying to date the troubled reality star!
According to TMZ, Tareq, 43, has been pitching his dating show to various networks, with the non-vomit inducing title of “Seducing Salahi.”
The dating show would shoot at his winery in Virginia and would be similar to the formula of the “Flavor of Love” and “Rock of Love” type shows — with 14 women competing for Tareq’s affection.
And get this, TMZ adds that several networks are actually interested! Yikes.
When Tareq’s not busy planning his dating show, he is also training for a “celebrity” boxing match. Tareq is planning to box fellow “celebrity” Jose Canseco on November 5. Tareq assures us via TMZ that when he steps into the ring, all he will be thinking about is the face of the man who stole his wife, Neal Schon aka the guitarist for the band Journey.
And speaking of Neal, he spent the weekend serenading his lady love Michelle on stage during a Journey concert.
The special event was for Michaele’s 46th birthday on Saturday. She came out on stage during which Neal serenaded her by singing “Happy Birthday.” TMZ summed it up best with this quote: “Sounds like a dream birthday any girl would want … in 1982.” A video of the serenading is below –

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST WITH THE SALAHIS? WOULD YOU WATCH TAREQ’S DATING SHOW?
Ryan Vieth, son ofTamra Barney has been slapped with a restraining order and ordered to stay away from his ex-girlfriend.
According to TMZ, Ryan, who also stars on the Real Housewives of Orange County, used to date Daniella Kelley (pictured below) — his mom’s stylist — but new court documents now require him to stay at least 100 yards away from her and her dog.
Sources close to Daniella tell TMZ that Ryan began harassing her after she broke up with him last year. Ryan allegedly began showing up to her house randomly and even posted racy photos of her on TheDirty website, which have now been removed.
Ryan’s lawyer however makes it clear to TMZ that “He broke up with HER,” adding that the TRO also states Daniella can’t contact Ryan or his family. Both parties agreed to extend the order until August of 2011.
Tamra is now defending her son in a statement to RadarOnline. “It’s heart breaking that this troubled girl who we all cared about and let into our lives is out for her 15 minutes,” Tamra told Radar. “They broke up months ago and they were BOTH ordered to stay away from each other.”
Tamra also adds that Daniella has not been abiding by the restraining order. “She continues to contact him any way she can,” Tamra revealed. “Our whole family has blocked her from communication and now she is using the media to get attention. I really hope that she can move on and get the help she needs.”
In other OC news, Tamra alongside cast mates Alexis Bellino and new housewife Peggy Tanous appeared on the Lopez Tonight show yesterday. Below is a video clip of their appearance.
The new season of the OC Housewives premieres March 6 on Bravo. A picture of Daniella Kelley is below.
As we reported last week, sources close to the 48-year-old reality/sex tape star claim she had to find out about her firing the same way everyone else did – by reading about it online.
The NYDailyNews is now reporting today, via Life&Style magazine, that Danielle has since resorted to tormenting her still employed cast mates.
“She spends her days driving around Franklin Lakes, slowing down outside her co-stars’ houses,” an insider tells Life&Style, even adding that Danielle was spotted pulling up to co-star Caroline Manzo’s home in her white Range Rover on Aug. 5.
“Danielle pointed to Caroline’s house and said something to the other people in the car,” says an eyewitness, adding that after identifying the home to her passengers, Danielle sped off.
Another source tells the mag the other housewives, along with their children, feel vulnerable because none of them live in a gated community. “None of them needed security before,” a second source added. “But now everyone’s nervous.”
Caroline is also reported to have completed flipped out when watching the finale episode, as she was not aware Danielle brought armed men to their sit down. “It’s one thing to create silly drama for television. It’s a completely different story when you involve guns,” says the source.
In other NJ news, the very public humiliation continues for Teresa Giudice. RadarOnline uncovered some court documents from a February 2010 Chapter 7 hearing, during which Teresa claimed all of her jewelry is fake, with the exception of her wedding band.
Oddly enough, a July appraisal ordered by the court showed the value of Teresa’s wedding band as being a mere $150. So in February, Teresa states her wedding band is real, and in July, that real wedding band is appraised at $150. Seems like someone might have pulled a good ole switcharoo to avoid losing their wedding band. The same appraisal showed the value of Joe’s wedding band as being only $240.
According to Radar, Teresa told the court all the jewelry she and hubby Joe Giudice owned got stolen a couple of years ago during a break in. “It’s all costume jewelry… and if you look at what I wear, it’s all costume jewelry,” stated Teresa to the trustee attorney questioning her during the hearing.
It gets even better. Teresa told the court she got about $20,000 from the insurance company, after which the trustee lawyer reminded her she and hubby Joe filed a claim for $120,000.
“Well, I mean, you know, when you get estimates from jewelers, they always put it for more than what it is,” was Teresa’s reply.
Other revelations from the court documents include the Giudices claiming they only had $1,000 in their bank account in their bankruptcy petition filing. Joe also admitted he gets $5,000 in monthly assistance from his father. “Whenever I need it, I ask him,” Joe said.
The Giudices also claimed their home furnishings are “used.”
And finally, Danielle Staub performed her non-hit single ‘Real Close‘ alongside rumored girlfriend Lori Michaels on the PIX11 Morning News show. The hilarity is above.
Multiple media outlets are reporting Vienna spent the entire weekend shopping around her Bachelor break up story to a tabloid, even before she officially broke up with Jake. So how much did Vienna receive for her explosive Star magazine interview? According to Popeater, she received a huge payday of $90,000.
“Jake was totally blindsided. Not only did he have no idea that Vienna was calling off their three-month engagement, he also had no idea that she would be the type of girl to profit from the breakup,” adds a source.
But don’t go feeling sorry for Jake just yet because multiple sources believe he never truly loved Vienna and was only staying with her for “fame.” The Hollywoodlife reports Jake has spent almost 10 years trying to break into acting, and he knew picking Vienna would lead to more controversy, more publicity, and more opportunities ala Dancing With The Stars.
A source tells RadarOnline, “She was trying to be a loving, second half to him but he didn’t reciprocate,” the source said. “She wanted a real relationship but he wanted an arm doll and a fake life for publicity.”
One person who isn’t surprised by this sudden break up is Jake’s ex Tanya Douglas. If you recall, Tanya gave multiple interviews this year saying Jake wanted to get back together with her after picking Vienna. “Oh, I’m so surprised,” Tanya sarcastically said on That Guy Kramer radio show after being told that Jake and Vienna were over.
And despite multiple media outlets confirming Vienna dumped Jake via phone, Jake is sticking to his claim that he did the dumping on the phone. When asked by PEOPLE magazine why he broke up by phone, Jake gives a rather interesting answer. He claims the distrust issues with Vienna were preventing him from getting into character for his guest role on Drop Dead Diva, and ending things with Vienna would be the only way he could get out of his “head” and give the character justice. Folks we are not making this up.
“One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head,” Jake, 32, tells PEOPLE. “This [show] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character.”
Troubled by what he termed “trust issues” with Vienna, 24, Jake says he broke up with her in a phone call Monday night.
“I’ve been trying to put all that aside so that I can give this character justice,” he says. “It’s been a struggle thinking about my relationship and going in front of the camera and shooting.”
Yikes, must say Jake’s words are not helping him shoot down those fame whore rumors. And as for ABC’s reaction to this very nasty public split? Popeater reveals ABC is very upset with the way Vienna handled this and are worried that another ‘Bachelor’ breakup will hurt the entire franchise. You don’t say ABC?
“Once people stop believing the show is about finding true love and instead making these awful people famous, they will stop watching,” reveals the industry source. Seems like ABC has very good reason to be worried.
And this time around, Melissa, who is happily married to Tye Strickland, is not vying for a rose. The 27-year-old Dallas native is returning to co-host Bachelor Pad,with Chris Harrison.
Bachelor Pad is an all new ABC show that will feature previous contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette seasons, as they live together in the mansion and compete in a series of challenges and dates for a chance at winning $250,000 — and a second chance at love.
“I’m excited.” Melissa tells PEOPLE. “It’s fun. It’s a brand new experience for me. I’ve never been on that side but I’m anxious. I’m excited and ready to start.”
Her younger sister, Kim Kardashian, also seems to have taken notice as Kim reveals to UsWeekly that Kourtney now weighs less than her. “My sister weighs less than I do, and she just had a baby — so that’s kind of fascinating to me!” said Kim, 29, at Wet Republic in Las Vegas Saturday, where she celebrated Kourtney’s 31st birthday along with Khloe Kardashian.
Kim is however 5-foot-3, while Kourtney is 5-foot-1. And what is Kourtney’s secret for slimming down so quickly after having Mason in December? “Definitely breastfeeding helps,”said Kourt. “Everyone says that, but it’s really true — and it’s just being a busy mom.”
This unfortunately gave Khloe, 25, some ideas. “If that’s all it takes, breastfeeding?” said Khloe jokingly. “Then someone breastfeed off of me! I don’t care!”

First the OC mom lied about her relationship with new beau Eddie Judge, you can read all about that here. And now she has chosen to lie about her affiliation and usage of weight loss drug, Duzoxin.
A reader emailed us a conversation Tamra had with a friend on her facebook page, during which which she denied taking the weight loss drug, and even denied having anything to do with the company. A quick check to Tamra’s facebook two days ago showed the conversation. She seems to have now deleted it from her page. The coversation is below –
Christi – Tamra. Does Duzoxin really work? Does it make you feel like your loaded on caffeine or is it an even energy and metabolism heightner?2 hours ago · Tamra Barney I do not take it… I have nothing to do with that company 2 hours ago · Christi – Ok great. I saw the video they had posted and was thinking about ordering it if you said it worked. about an hour ago · Christi – Do you know of something that does work? With all the weight loss/maintaining drugs out there it would be nice to know of some that actually work. Tamra Barney – be very careful taking any diet pill. have you tried a green tea fat burner? I use to take lipo 6 and it worked for me about an hour ago ·
As you can see from the above photo, Tamra was a spokeperson for the company along with some of her fellow co-stars. Not only that, her page and personal testimonial is still up on the company’s site – at http://www.duzoxintv.com/tamra/. She gave the following testimonial below –
“As a mom, reality TV star, and a busy woman, I have tried many different products in the past to help me with my workout regimen. Nothing I have tried so far has come close to what Düzoxin has done for me. I’ve just started taking Düzoxin, and judging by how wonderful the other girls look and feel, I have a feeling I’ll be taking Düxoxin for a very long time to come. Thank you Düzoxin for making my life just a bit easier!”
It’s a wonder she and Gretchen Rossi don’t get along better, they both seem to have A LOT in common.
