On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New JerseyI breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!
The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!

Despite being photographed looking chummy with Matt, 29, both in Texas and California, Taylor, 40, denies there is anything romantic going on. “I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter,” she tweeted. Sources however insist the two have a “friends with benefits” relationship going on.
And in an interview with Access Hollywood, Taylor opened up about finally moving on with her life 2 months after her estranged husband Russell Armstrong took his own life.
“Day by day things are getting easier,” Taylor revealed, adding that she plans to make one of her first major appearances since the August tragedy during a New Year’s Eve Ciroc/Bravo event. “It was something that I had decided to do a while before the tragedy occurred,” Taylor explained. “I wanted to honor that commitment; it was important to me.”
“I do have to get on with my life at some point,” continued Taylor. “At that point, it will have been quite some time. I feel like New Year’s Eve is a time for new beginnings, and a time to set goals for the future. I think that’s a good landmark for me.”
For the time being, Taylor continues to work to raise awareness for domestic violence victims. She alleges Russell was physically abusive to her.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 8th episode of the season titled ‘The Opposite of Relaxation,’ Adrienne hosts a spa get-together at her home, but it’s far from a bubbly affair when twisted sisters Kim and Kyle continue to steam over Brandi’s game-night antics.
Following the cancellation of their wedding last year which was followed by Matt’s arrest for domestic violence (the charges were eventually dropped), the Basketball Wives LA stars have decided to end their relationship and engagement.
Matt confirms the split in a statement released to the LA Times. “I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship,” Matt’s statement read. “We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”
Matt and Gloria have two kids together — 2-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isiah Michael. The LA Times also adds that it’s unclear on whether the former couple will be dividing their assets, which includes their Palos Verdes home.
There were signs that this breakup was coming as just weeks ago Gloria admitted her relationship was not perfect, even revealing the two had been in couple’s counseling.
And just last week, a fan tweeted to Matt that he should marry Gloria or else someone else will. Matt responded: “He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Yikes.
Gloria has yet to comment on the split though she did retweet this on Saturday: “If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you.”
A new episode of Basketball Wives LA airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS BREAKUP? ARE YOU SURPRISED?
UPDATE – Gloria is now confirming the breakup via her twitter page. She tweeted: “I’m sure you guys are hearing a ton of buzz about Matt and Me breaking up, sorry to say… its true!!!” She later added, “But the most important thing is focusing on my kids and continuing to have a good relationship with their father, thanks for your support!!!”
Kim Kardashian, the really real reality and sextape star is moving to the big screen!
According to a new report by Deadline, Kimmie will star in Tyler Perry’s new film The Marriage Counselor! Kinda ironic, considering her own marital woes!
Filming for the flick begins next week in Atlanta and Kim will play the role of Ava, a co-worker and friend to the main character, who “helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.”
This will be Kim’s third attempt at the big screen – the first two attempts was so completely unmemorable I didn’t even know they happened!
In other news, Kim also took to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate her 31st birthday the only way she knows how! How you ask? Just by getting paid to host her own birthday party at a club! According to reports that came out last year, Kimmie commands up to $250,000 for each of her paid club appearances.
The HollywoodLife blog is however reporting Kimmie might be regretting this latest paid gig as she reportedly got booed at her own birthday party!
The blog states that Kimmie, who held her party at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Oct. 22, was booed after she was introduced!
In fact, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, who was also in attendance, reportedly tried to calm the crowd down but unfortunately the rowdy crowd only got louder when Khloe took the mike. Ouch!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S BUDDING FILM CAREER OR HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF HER? THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE GETTING BOOED?
Former Real Housewives of New Jerseystar Dina Manzois speaking out once again, for the last time according to her, about the recent drama on the show. In a blog posted on her personal website on Sunday night, Dina appears to be taking sides and hint: it ain’t her sister’s.
Dina, found herself the topic of conversation on part II of the RHONJ reunion when her fake BFF Teresa Giudicemade certain to bring up her rift with her sister Caroline Manzo.
On the reunion show, Caroline blamed Teresa for coming between her and Dina. “[Dina] was led to believe a lot of things that are not true. She has a good friend that likes to talk and she says things to her that aren’t true against me and Jacqueline [Laurita],” Caroline stated while looking directly at Teresa. “[Dina] claims I never supported her, and Teresa’s a big part of it. When you get into this world, the fame, your mind isn’t right. You drink the Kool-Aid.”
In her blog, Dina tries to come off as neutral though it’s pretty clear where she stands when she refutes Caroline’s claims that Teresa is to blame for their feud and even strongly insinuates that Caroline, Jacqueline Laurita, and their costars have been ganging up on Teresa.
Dina also confirmed what our sources told us weeks ago which is that she and Teresa are no longer close these days, and are pretty much using each other for press and publicity. Melissa Gorgaconfirmed the same on the reunion last night when she stated Dina and Teresa went 6 months without speaking.
Below Dina reveals she rekindled her friendship with Teresa after Teresa came crying to her following a confrontation with Caroline and Jacqueline during season 4 filming. Dina also points out that Teresa supports all of her charity and TV endeavors… Unlike Caroline?
“It wasn’t until VERY recently that Teresa showed up at my doorstep in tears…apparently Caroline & Jacqueline had a sit down with her on camera (for season 4) and she felt attacked. All I did was console a friend who was obviously shaken. I felt bad for her..even though I had distanced myself from her a bit I was still her friend and she needed me. I did miss my God daughter and the rest of her girls and I’m not proud to say that in staying away from her I had stayed away from them too. Within a few weeks I went to Teresa’s house to spend Audriana’s 2nd birthday with Teresa and her family. No camera’s, no drama just a nice family night the way things used to be…Teresa has been nothing but supportive of Project Ladybug through the years and is extremely supportive of my new show on HGTV. She tweets about it all the time AND watches when she can as a friend should.”
Dina goes on to confirm something else our source told us, which is that she did indeed film with Teresa for the upcoming 4th season despite her claims of wanting nothing to do with the show and all the drama it brings. But get this, Dina claims she filmed with Teresa by accident. Riiiight.
“Teresa then asked me to come to the launch of a new product that’s very important to her. I said yes of course but when I heard camera’s were going to be there I got a bit afraid. I had not attended any other events that were being filmed just to stay away from any potential drama that might go down. I wasn’t invited to any of them either but that’s besides the point lol. Anyway..I was so relieved when I saw on my schedule that I had an HGTV shoot that day and I would have to go late. I thought for sure the camera’s would be gone by then BUT they were not… Teresa and I briefly spoke about her broken relationship with her brother on camera. I gave her my best advice and told her to focus on all the good in her life and if her brother is meant to be a part of her life again he will be one day.”
When it comes to Teresa’s diss of her sister Caroline in her cookbook, Dina claims Teresa only meant it as a joke -
“She mentioned the drama with her and Caroline and I told her that if this is all about a joke in a book (and she assured me it was) that’s not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years. Was it necessary to write that stuff in her book? probably not but I don’t think it was written with malice either. We are all guilty of joking a little too much now & then…”
As for her strained relationship with not only Caroline, but also Caroline’s kids, Dina states -
“I feel bad that my relationship with my sister and her family is strained, but I can assure you that one day it will be back to the way it was. I don’t like fighting, I don’t like drama, I don’t like confrontation, I don’t agree with ganging up on someone (one of the other reasons why I left season 2) and I don’t need to share anymore than that. I am not on this show anymore, I didn’t sign on for opening up every aspect of my life to the world for the rest of my life when I signed that Bravo contract.”
Our source insists to us that Dina has called Teresa a troublemaker on more than one occasion but refuses to let go of her friendship with Teresa due to all the press and publicity she gets from Teresa attending her events. In fact, Dina has privately mentioned that she hopes Teresa picks her Lady Bug charity as her official charity during her upcoming stint on Celebrity Apprentice.
And I must say I find it extremely ironic that Dina’s (who claims to be all about peace and no drama) only friend on the show is none other than Teresa Giudice! Let that sink in for a minute!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON DINA’S LATEST BLOG? DO YOU THINK SHE’S SIDING WITH TERESA?
Report: Jersey Shore’s Ronnie Cheated On Sammi With Bad Girl Club’s Star Morgan!
Jersey Shore fans were not shocked to hear that on-again off-again coupleRonnie Magro and Sammi Giancola broke up again recently, but they might however be surprised at the reason for the break up!
According to TheDirty.com, the same site that broke the recent Ashton Kutcher cheating scandal, Ronnie not only cheated on Sammi but he did it with another reality star!
The site is reporting that Ronnie hooked up with Bad Girls Club season 5 alum Morgan Brittany Osman! If you recall, Morgan made her mark on BGC by getting kicked off during the first episode of her season.
As for what happened between Ronnie and Morgan, “model” Arian Marie, a friend of Morgan’s, tells TheDirty site that Ronnie and Morgan first had sex in Florida in mid September. The two then met up again a week later at a club in Las Vegas. Arian says Ronnie disrespected her by not letting her sit at his table with him and Morgan so she decided to put him on blast on twitter.
Arian tweeted to Sammi on September 25: “So @MTVsammi I thought u should kno that @mtvronnie was f***ing my girl @Morganbritt724 last weekend n now they r at wet. Sorry.”
Ronnie then blew his fuse, like any normal guy would after just being outed to his girlfriend as a scumbag cheater, by making a series of nasty tweets about Arian, all of which he later deleted.
Next thing we know, Sammi stopped following Ronnie on twitter and Ronnie was announcing the two had broken up last week. Here’s to hoping it’s for good this time!
While Sammi has yet to officially comment on the break up, she did tweet – “Thank u to all my fans and supporters u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo”
As for Morgan, she is keeping mum on the issue though theDirty sites states she “is not proud of her actions.” More photos of Morgan below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SURPRISED RONNIE CHEATED? DO YOU THINK THEY’RE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
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.
