No good deed goes unpunished! Following last week’s epic Jersey Shorebar brawl, the cast members are being taken to court! Justin Viterito and Devon Chichele, two of the victims in the fight, are planning a massive lawsuit against Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, J-Woww‘s boyfriend Roger Matthews, MTV, Viacom (the company that owns MTV), the bar’s bouncer, and Bamboo Bar where the brawl took place!
The fight began innocently enough, but quickly spiraled out of control. According to TMZ, Justin Viterito was drinking with Ronnie and Roger but when Devon Chichele approached to find his friend a member of the Jersey Shore entourage “pushed him in the back,” says their lawyer Matthew DiBrino.
Mr. DiBrino alleges that Justin went to help Devon but was physically assaulted by Ronnie in the process after the bouncer held Justin in a headlock allowing Ronnie to hit him in the face.
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was a knockdown, drag-out war of words. It would appear that this is the beginning of the bitter end for former besties Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita. I hate a reality TV friendship divorce – I feel like I need to have a funeral for Jacqueresa. Next week I’m so wearing black while tuning in.
Some other stuff happened like Lauren Manzo continued to complain about being fat and drinking egg whites while her parents made snippy comments about how she is fat.
So I guess Teresa and Joe Giudice are so broke they’re selling fake stories – or photos – to the tabloids (or volunteering to let the tabloids run stories about them depending on whom you ask and what week), yet they’re building a brand new carport and a garage with an inlaw apartment. Teresa wants her parents to live there. Apparently Teresa has also installed a new closet. I’m sure she cleaned out all of Italy’s marble reserve and all of JoAnn Fabrics fake gold leaf for the accents.
Last night’s Sister Wives was more like solo wife, as the majority of the episode focuses on Kody and Meri.
Kody is taking Meri to Mexico…she’s beyond shocked. He’s been saying he wanted to take her back to Mexico for ages, but she never expected him to actually follow through. Kody’s having a hard time packing, given that his closet is spread out among several houses. Kody is hoping that trip will provide him with the opportunity to force Meri into a decision about having another baby with Robyn as the surrogate.
Both Meri and Kody admit that there is pressure when such a big trip is planned. Kody hopes the other wives aren’t expecting the same treatment, and Meri hates that she can’t act too excited for fear of hurting the other wives’ feelings. Robyn and Janelle think that Meri is long overdue for a big trip. Christine agrees and says she’s thinking about where she wants to go on her next Kody vacay…cut to Kody talking about the pressure of his wives’ expectations.
It’s the second installment of Mob Wives: Chicago. These ladies aren’t pulling any punches…they are coming in guns blazing.
Renee Fecarotta Russo is embarrassed that the women are fighting in such a classy place. Christina Scoleri pulls out Pia Rizza’s weave. Someone has taken Drita 101. Pia gets kicked out of the restaurant, although she seems confused as to why she was asked to leave.
NoraSchweihs goes to talk to Renee. Neither can believe the debacle from the previous evening. Renee thinks that both women were acting a fool. Nora tries to defend her friend’s behavior. Nora convinces Renee to call Pia to see if she would be willing to call a truce. Renee invites Pia over to have coffee with her and Nora.
The E! News anchor and her Apprentice winning husband have certainly been through a lot this past year, so I am thrilled that Giuliana and Bill Rancic have some exciting news to share. After discovering she had breast cancer while undergoing fertility treatments, the couple didn’t give up on their dream to have a child. The pair announced in April that they were expecting a baby via gestational surrogate. Reality TV reports that their upcoming bundle of joy will be a boy!
“We are beyond excited to be having a little boy,” Bill says “We are so ready for everything that comes with being a new mom and dad!”
His wife agrees, citing, “This truly is a miracle baby.”
Bethenny’s ex-manager, Doug Wald, claimed that he helped her put together the deal and that just days before her big $120 million payout, she fired him. Wald had stated that he helped Bethenny find an agent and introduced her to David Kanbar, who put together the business plan for Skinnygirl and helped Bethenny grow it and sell it for a nice profit to Beam Global.
Remember when they were the closest of friends? I guess reality television really does change people, and that is evident when you look at the relationship between Real Housewives of New Jersey’sJacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice. Reality Tea has an exclusive source who is close with all of the ladies in the Garden State franchise. Our insider, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that with Jacq, what you see is what you get, but Teresa has allowed fame to go to her head.
The sources tells us, “Jacqueline is one of the nicest people you will ever meEt. She is a true friend and has a heart of gold. She is a sweetheart. She is 10000% real. Teresa is the exact opposite. She competes with anything breathing… Kim D. and her are not as close as you think. Kim D. uses Teresa for the exposure Teresa gives her store. Kim D. liked Melissa and even asked her to walk in her fashion show the 1st season they were on. Teresa told her to pick a side and Kim. D. picked Teresa’s side. All the ‘true’ friends Teresa ever had are no longer friends with her. Now, she claims Kim D., her makeup artist, and other random people are her best friends. Teresa only is friends with people she feels she is above or she can use.”
Bethenny Frankel is eager to make the transition from reality star to talk show host. Sadly, that trasnistion has been rocky at best. Since the first twinkling rumor that the Bethenny Ever After star was hoping to move to primetime and score a new gig, she has been plagued by bad news.
First she was too abrasive and no networks wanted her, so she was forced to work with a “nice coach” (a rumor Bethenny denied), then no networks picked up the show and she got dropped – and finally Fox bit after Ellen Degeneres got involved in the production of the show.
Well, following Bethenny’s first week as a talk show host, the limited released show has been plagued by topsy turvy ratings – that according to some are getting lower by the day. Day one of ‘bethenny’ got pretty decent numbers about 1.5 million viewers on average. Which is pretty solid.
