According to UsWeekly, DeAnna, 29, wed Stephen on Saturday in the Serenbe community of Palmetto, GA.
“We’re so ecstatic to be husband and wife and we’re thrilled to be sharing this day with all our family and friends,” the couple told UsWeekly.
Stephen, a high school teacher, proposed to DeAnna back in May 2010 with a 2.12-carat white-gold ring.
DeAnna starred on the Bachelorette season 4 back in 2008. She and Stephen met in 2009 months after DeAnna called off her engagement to her then fiance/winner of her Bachelorette season Jesse Csincsak. Congrats to the happy couple!
As long as there has been reality television, there have been reality television feuds. And of course, as long as there have been Real Housewives, there have been Real Housewives feuds. Case in point, the current feud involving Teresa and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast!
If you watched the first half of the New Jersey reunion last week, you saw, as did the rest of the world, what would appear to be a very unlikely housewives’ feud between former friends and now enemies Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo.And as we learn on tonight’s reunion conclusion, the Guidice/Manzo blow-up seems to have undertones of Manzo versus Manzo as Teresa makes sure to bring up the discord between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo.
But first in an interview with People right after the reunion, Teresa claims to love her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga despite just telling In Touch Weekly that Melissa married her brotherJoe Gorga for his money. “I love my family,” states Teresa. “I love Melissa. My brother is married to her for seven years… I’m trying to make things better.” Teresa adds: “They are trying to make it look like I’m hurting Melissa. But, if anything, I always stuck by her.” Always stuck by her???
When it comes to Caroline, Teresa plays the victim changes her tune, saying, “I don’t get Caroline’s problem with me. I never did anything to intentionally hurt people.” Maybe, maybe not, but I certainly never heard her apologize for unintentionally hurting people. Claiming she was “set up” by her cast mates on the reunion, Tre continues, “I never, ever got in between Dina and Caroline. It’s none of my business.” That may very well be the case, but one has to wonder, why does she even bring it up tonight then?
Maybe her reason is spite. Caroline did reveal on national television that Teresa recently called brother Joe an a$$hole. Family tit-for-tat, perhaps? You air my dirty laundry, I’ll air yours! Thankfully, Caroline has taken to her Bravo blog to clear up any confusion on her part.
She writes, “I don’t regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn’t hide my feelings. I didn’t see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga’s face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa’s true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn’t deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it.”
Caroline also touched on the comments Teresa made about her in her cookbook which included calling her 1/16th Italian. “It was never about the Italian remark, it was about the underhanded sneaky insults towards the rest of us followed by an insincere apology. I referred to her once as a modern day Lucille Ball because of her flighty “innocence” and goofy personality back in the day. To use my words as a defense against your insulting remarks towards my son is unbelievable. Apology not accepted.”
Discussing her issues with Dina, Caroline states that her reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet on the reunion had less to do with her pride and more to do with her parents. She says, “My fear in having this issue exposed had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about my parents.” She continues, “Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start.” Ouch!
Caroline continues to discuss the feud with her sister, admitting, “Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it’s a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I’m only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass.”
Dinaechoes her sister’s sentiments, stating, “Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister. I wish all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives. As far as my relationship with my sister is concerned I’m sure in time things will mend itself.”
Caroline finishes up her blog by stating: “Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”
So Teresa didn’t cause the feud, she just brings it up tonight on the second half the reunion? I, for one, can’t wait to see the drama unfold. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s madness below. The conclusion of the reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 10PM ET.

A mere two months following Kim Kardashian’s zillion dollar “wedding of the year” (ha!) to Kris Humphries-Kardashian the rumors of marital issues are simply refusing to go away. In fact, several new reports claim the couple is moving dangerously close to splitsville.
Apparently while Kimmie was in the United Arab Emirates & Dubai (wearing 6” heels on a camel?!) earning a kool 1M for who knows what, Krissy-poo was home in NYC getting veeerrry friendly with other women.
Life & Style is reporting that Kris was seen leaving 1Oak Nightclub holding hands with a mystery blonde who is apparently a friend of his sister and instead of meeting Kim at the airport following her six-day trip, he grabbed lunch with his buddies. Husband of the year!
Another insider reports that while Kim was working in Miami last month, Kris was seen getting lap dances from two women in a different club. While the mommy’s kat’s away, the mouse will play!
“Kris takes other girls’ cell phone numbers all the time. To be honest, I don’t think Kris truly loves Kim. And I don’t think he ever really did,” a source tells Radar Online about the marriage.
Even worse, Kim’s agent has reportedly dropped Kris from his client roster. Well, he does have even LESS talent than his wife! Along with dropping Kris from their roster, William Morris Endeavor Entertainment has also canceled plans for a Kris & Kim reality show. I’m … just… so… disappointed! “I don’t know when they’ll announce the split or why they got married in the first place but they are done,” an insider close to the couple tells Mail Online.
“Kim isn’t willing to change her life [for Kris],” Page Six reveals. “She works hard and cannot take any time out. And she doesn’t have time for his friends.” In fact, one reason their relationship is in trouble is they spend no alone time together. “They haven’t had any time to settle in together. They have an army of people around them all the time,” a source explains. “It’s hard for them to be alone and have quality time together,” the source elaborates, claiming Kim “films until midnight every night,” for Kourtney & Kim Take New York (seriously who watches that show?!)!
In fact, supposedly the implosion of their barely existent marriage is a plot line for the upcoming season. Which makes me wonder – is their made for TV marriage really in trouble or is the couple just trying to generate ratings?
Filming for the show seems to be a major hurdle in their relationship and part of the discontent stems from Kim’s homesickness for LA. “I’m kind of homesick,” Kim told Life & Style. “So I need to go back to LA for a little bit.” Wait didn’t she promise to move anywhere for her hubby’s career?! “Kim’s mapping out 2012, including holidays, and Kris isn’t a part of it. Any itineraries for the future don’t include Kris very much. That’s not a good sign,” says a source.
While sources say things are so bad Kris was spotted – sans wedding ring – moving boxes out of their NYC residence after Kim kicked him out, Kim denies the allegations. Multiple sources tell TMZ that filming for Kourtney & Kim has finished and the couple is simply moving back to LA together. As for the missing wedding ring – Kris “isn’t a fan of jewelry.”
Who knows what to believe? I guess, we’ll wait for the next round of tabloid reports.

WHAT DO YOU THINK – A MARRIAGE IN TROUBLE OR A PUBLICITY STUNT? DO YOU THINK KIM AND KRIS WILL MAKE IT IN THE LONG RUN?
“I regret how I acted. I am very sorry and it is so hard for me to watch the show,” tweeted Kim. She later added: “Thank you for your support!! I of course regret my behavior as well and im sure we both wish we could take it back.”
Also speaking out once again about her mean girl behavior is Kyle, who assures us she is absolutely NOT mean in real life! “The last couple of weeks I look like a mean person and I’m not, but you don’t always see everything and it’s hard to explain to people,” Kyle told Wetpaint. “I can say that when I watch it, I think that’s not me.”
Kyle goes on to reveal that she doesn’t have an issue with Brandi while seemingly blaming Brandi’s friendship with Cedric Martinez(Lisa Vanderpump’s former houseguest) as the reason for treating her the way she did.
“I don’t have anything against Brandi, I think she’s a beautiful girl. I think things are misunderstood about her son going to the bathroom on the grass. I don’t have any sons, but I know that little boys do that,” explained Kyle. “There is just a lot of stuff that people don’t see leading up to Brandi coming into the show, amongst all of us girls talking and knowing she is friends with Cedric,” she added.
As for Brandi, she is now firing back at both sisters in her latest Bravo blog. In the excerpt below, Brandi takes back the crystal meth comment she made about Kim but makes it clear she still believes Kim was under the influence of something -
“No, I do not believe that Kim was on crystal meth, and for that I apologize. I am also not 100 percent sold it was merely anxiety medication. Didn’t she tell Kyle she was inhaling air freshener? So maybe I was wrong: it wasn’t crystal meth, it was Febreeze. Under extreme circumstances I have taken anti-anxiety medication, and it did not require me to make 10 to 15 bathroom trips in the matter of four hours. Just sayin’.”
Brandi goes on to slam both Kyle and Kim for taking her crutches -
“When someone is dealing with an injury or a disability, it’s really funny to hide their means of support, right? It’s really funny to hide someone’s crutches. Isn’t it interesting that Kyle and Kim question my etiquette, morals, and upbringing, and yet they hide an injured woman’s crutches? Hilarious. There are three sides to every story and everyone saw the truth. Kyle’s version was entertaining, wasn’t it? I should have gotten a bowl of popcorn and some red vines because that story was straight out of her imagination.”
And finally, Kim Richards recently celebrated her 47th birthday and posted photos on her personal facebook page! In attendance were all four of her children as well as her sister Kyle. Those photos are below!

Could it be? Has it been an entire season of Jersey Shore? Are we really saying arrivederci to Florence with our favorite gorilla juiceheads and guidettes? It seems like only yesterday the meatballs were hooking up with one another and Mike was bashing his head into a wall. Ahh, memories. I mean, this was the season that had a bearable, dare I say likeable, Rawn and Sam! That, in itself, is mind boggling.
We rejoin the group at the tail end of their clubbing. At home, Mike continues to talk to himself and practice karate on the walls. Snooki wakes up and proceeds to ignore Mike as he wanders aimlessly around the house having a solo conversation. The rest of the roommates return home from the clerb, with Sam begging Rawn to talk some sense into Mike after his antics earlier in the evening.
The Situation confides in Ronnie that he feels like the villain. Ronnie knows that Mike has been depressed and he wants him to try to mend fences with the housemates. A slightly defensive Mike says he doesn’t care if his roommates don’t like him. He has gotten used to be alone. Sammi commends Rawn for at least trying to talk to Mike.

The recently fired, former Real Housewives of New York couple makes it clear to Wetpaint, that they’re not going anywhere as they threaten promise a return to reality television! And true to form Simon van Kempen does most of the talking in the interview! “I wouldn’t write us off TV just yet, but it’s a bit too early to confirm anything,” Simon promises.
Although Simon claims a return to reality TV would probably not include Bravo, he insists the couple “left on good terms” and the door is still open for a return to HW. I mean after all, Alex McCord got a spot on the Real Housewives Live Tour and “she’s the only “fired” Housewife to do the tour,” Simon boasts of his wife. Victory in small things! A photo of Alex attending the HW tour is below.
“If the rumors are true and they open the door to come back, then, maybe not,” Simon assures. Making sure to reiterate Bravo still likes them – they really do and reality TV is their destiny, “the doors are certainly open because we’ve now left and whether it’s with Housewives or with Bravo or another network, that remains to be seen, but we’ll come back on your TV screens sometime in 2012.” Oh, yay! Or Oh, No! I can’t decide which.
While the couple is most definitely promising a return to our TV screens, they haven’t quit their day jobs just yet (they’re not making that mistake again!) and are hard at work on Aluxe Home, raising their two boys, and supporting many charitable causes – including working together with LuAnnde Lesseps!
“I had wanted to do a home line for years, and Simon jumped on board with that completely — we do everything as a team,” Alex reminds us. “After several potential deals that didn’t go through, we decided that going into partnership with a factory was a really good bet,” which is how they ended up with Aluxe Home. Alex shares that a big inspiration for the line was color, and a desire to create a more sophisticated style of children’s bedding.
Alex also talks family and apparently the couple are not planning for anymore children. But why – it would make for such good TV! “Our family is complete with 2 kids — Simon and I both agreed that we did not want to be outnumbered,” Alex laughs! “Simon and I went from being adamant that we would never have kids, to changing our minds and embracing parenthood (and luckily that happened before our first child arrived!).”
As for working together with LuAnn, Alex explains: “we are putting aside our Housewives differences to support Breast Cancer survivors in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” Wow…I’m shocked, but in a good way.

THOUGHTS ON SILEX’S POTENTIAL RETURN TO TELEVISION? SHOULD THEY GIVE IT UP ALREADY OR DO YOU WANT TO SEE MORE OF THEM? WOULD YOU BUY PRODUCTS FROM THEIR NEW BEDDING LINE?
Well, we finally made it! It’s almost the end and despite there being something like 8 decoy collections, the finalist for this season of Project Runway were chosen! Are you relieved or is that just me?
The designers meet Heidi Klum on the runway and she explains all four designers will design a collection. But only three of them will be moving forward to compete at fashion week. They will have 5 weeks and $9k to create a 10-look collection. Tim Gunn – intellectual and compassionate sounding board – will be checking in on the designers mid-way through to provide feedback.
All the contestants engage in the tried and true emotional breakdown, crying, ‘I can’t believe I made it tears’ and they’re off! Viktor and Eyebrows McSequins hop on a subway and zoom off home. I always love it when the contestants walk or cab it home from Parsons at the end. Remember in season 3 when Laura Bennett with all her fabulous vintage LV luggage and her Manolos just walked right out of the studio and cruised the couple blocks home? Classic.
