Melissa Gorga's new book "Love, Italian Style" hit shelves last week and has been getting an avalanche of negative press, not just for the bad writing, but for the terrible advice, too.
Among the pearls of wisdom Melissa andJoe Gorgadispel is that your man needs sex whether you want it or not and if your woman isn't in the mood, just rip her clothes off and make her in the mood. Some critics of the book felt that Melissa's husband calming tactics promoted marital rape! Not only that they called into question Joe's aggressive temper and wondered if it pointed to abuse. Oh my…
Since the Real Housewife of New Jersey star has a book to sell and teenaged girl fans to appease she quickly dismissed the criticism and claimed that her words were twisted by the media for some press. "That word is so disgusting to me and that's horrible," Melissa seethed to E! News.
As we gear up for NeNe Leakes' second wedding to Gregg on I Dream of NeNe, the couple has a lot of issues to resolve before they walk back down the aisle. Between prenups and drama with Gregg's grown children, the couple certainly have some work to do with Dr. Jeff. Thankfully, NeNe and Gregg have a strong support group in their wedding party…or do they?
Both the Neenster and Gregg discuss their friends in their respective Bravo blogs, and Gregg expresses his appreciation to his "basement ballers" for standing by him as he works to get his family back together. NeNe writes, "My lunch date with some of my Atlanta Bridesmaids: This was supposed to be a Sex in the City lunch with my girls to celebrate my getting married again. Diana Gowins is a longtime girlfriend of mine with whom I've shared a lot. We have been really close over the years. I love her like a sister! We like to call her the protective one, the security, the gate keeper, and Miss Territorial because Diana always questions when someone new is around. She has an uncomfortable attitude when new people are introduced into our circle."

Gretchen Tweeted, "Just landed in Miami! So excited for our vacation in Bahamas for the @AccessHollywood golf tournament this weekend."
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Tia Mowry seems to be the type of woman who effortlessly juggles it all from her reality show, Tia & Tamera to being a new mom to 2-year-old son Cree.
And now she's returning to sitcom acting in the new show "Instant Mom". Tia's character, Stephanie, plays party-girl who marries an older man with children who she in-turn is forced to become a step-mother to! "I think Stephanie, like every mom, is trying to find a balance," Tia tells Essence of her new role and the similarities they share.
"We all know at the end of the day you can’t just be friends with your kids, because you give them an inch they take a mile. So it’s trial and error with her. We’re not perfect. Being a mother and a parent does not come with a handbook."
Caroline Manzo has already landed a spinoff aptly titled 'Manzo'd With Children' and in light of that has opted to leave the show. At least temporarily while she shoots a pilot for her new show! Some sources say Caroline may come back pending the spinoff's success, others say she is officially done!
My Magic Hate Ball predicts 'Try Again', Caro! I'm sorry while I think they're a sweet family, they just don't have much charisma or presence. I think that will be super boring to watch.
