The fellas of Jersey Shore get unguidofied in the latest issue of GQ.
Since the Jersey Shore guys take a lot of pride in their GTL rituals aka Gym Tan Laundry, the folks at GQ decided to address the gym “situation” by providing them with some simplified sportswear.
Above is a after shot following the makeover for Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino,Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Vinny Guadagnino. The guys also did a Q & A with GQ, excerpts below -
GQ: What about using personal trainers? Yes or no? Vinny: I used to be a trainer, and 90 percent of the people who use trainers are women and old people. But it can be good—I used to train other trainers sometimes. DJ Pauly D: Sometimes I look at the trainers at the gym, and I look better than them. I’m not gonna take advice from somebody who doesn’t look better than me, bro. Mike, I don’t really have a six-pack. Should I be crying in my beer about it? The Situation: Nah. Be confident in what you got.
GQ: What’s the best body-related compliment you’ve gotten from a girl? Vinny: I’m not that big next to these guys, but— Ronnie: It’s more about the mind-body connection with Vinny. The Situation: It’s more about the pushin’.
The before shot and more makeover photos of the guys below!
On the sixth episode this season, titled “Securing Homeland,” Mary and Cat connect over parenting issues, while family dramas haunt Stacie, who hopes to find her biological father. Elsewhere, Cat copes with the death of a friend; Michaele searches for a new home; and Tareq’s family troubles escalate.
In other DC news, Popeater is reporting today that Bravo is oh so over the Salahis, adding that the Salahis are the only cast members of the DC Housewives to not be invited back for another season.
“The DC show is the only show in the entire franchise that isn’t a true hit,” an insider tells Popeater. “And the Salahi’s are the biggest reason for that. At first, execs thought they struck gold with all the attention the couple got over the White House dinner. But now they realize not all press is good press and this couple’s involvement in the show has turned more viewers off than on.”
According to Popeater, the final straw with the Salahis came this week when they alleged in their new book that Bravo’s “iron-clad” contract didn’t allow them to talk to the media about the White House-crashing incident. Bravo was apparently not happy with this claim, that they had to release a statement denying the allegation.
An unidentified Bravo housewife tells the site, “They are a loose cannon. Now, Michaele has revealed she has multiple sclerosis; next she’ll be announcing she is pregnant with triplets to get attention.”

Well, we can now bring you the story details, but you might be in for a bit of a letdown as Teresa’s marriage with Joe is stronger than ever according to them. And those past infidelities? Well, it actually has to do with an ex-boyfriend of Teresa’s and not Joe. And finally, Teresa has never moved out on Joe, but tells the magazine she would if Joe were to ever cheat on her.
Teresa On the Joe Love Child Rumors – Teresa tells the mag it was Joe’s ex-business partner who first informed them of the love-child rumors. “He called, and he was laughing at Joe, saying, ‘Ha ha, look what’s coming back to haunt you – the love child!’” she recalls. “My husband didn’t even know what that meant.” Teresa insists there is zero truth to the rumors that Joe fathered a son out of wedlock. “I wish I knew who started it,” she says. “Maybe it was Danielle.”
Joe On Teresa & Their Amazing Sex Life – Joe also talks to InTouch, telling the mag he still finds Teresa incredibly attractive, and that they still make love at least once a day. “If she passes out on me, we do it in the morning,” says Joe. “The morning is actually pretty good.” As for what he loves about Teresa, Joe says: “She’s a good mom, she’s a hard worker. And she has a nice ass.” Teresa adds with a smile, “I have to say, an orgasm is a great stress-reliever.” And no, we’re not making this up folks.
Teresa On Past Infidelities – While Teresa and Joe deny all cheating rumors, Terese, who tells the mag she got suspended in high school for giving a girl a black eye, opened up about an ex-boyfriend who repeatedly cheated on her. “I had an ex-boyfriend who cheated,” recalls Teresa. “I would check his phone, his answering machine.” That relationship ultimately ended after Teresa confronted one of his women in a nightclub, during which things got physical.
When it comes to Teresa and Joe’s relationship, Teresa tells the mag the two were childhood friends, and that she always had a crush on Joe, though they didn’t start dating until they were adults. A picture of Teresa and Joe is below. Teresa was 12 when the photo was taken.
You can read more about Teresa and Joe’s interview in the latest issue of InTouch Weekly. There are also more old photos of the two in the magazine issue.

She is baaack! Bravo has announced the all new fourth season of The Millionaire Matchmaker will return on October 19 at 9pm ET/PT.
Even better, in an attempt to capitalize on the success of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Albie Manzo, 24 and Chris Manzo, 21 will appear on the show this season, as Patti Stanger will attempt to fix them up. A source told the NYPost back in June that the boys were interested in “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls.” No word yet on if mama bear Caroline Manzo will make a special appearance.
The fourth season of the show marks the big move from Los Angeles to New York City. The always crude Patti mentioned in a previous interview that the toughest part of filming in NYC was “finding hot girls” in the city. Patti is also pulling out all the stops this season, as she will be introducing a few new tricks including a spy camera, lie detector test and hiring a make-up specialist from “Saturday Night Live.”
According to Bravo, we can expect the most over-the-top bachelors and bachelorettes yet, including a Wall Street to beach bum, Judith Regan – the queen of all media, and Freddie Mitchell – ex-wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Patti’s recent break-up with ex-fiance Andy Friedman will likely not be a topic this season, as the filming for the show had ended before it happened. Returning alongside Patti is Chief Operating Officer Destin Pfaff, and newly promoted Rachel Federoff, now the VP of Matching.
UPDATE - Thanks to our reader Valerie, it seems Chelsea Autumn is no longer on the show. According to Chelsea’s facebook page, she now works as the head matchmaker for a company called Queen of Hearts, Inc. Wonder what led to Chelsea’s departure…
The Big Brother 12 finale aired last night with Hayden Moss, a 24 year-old college student from Tempe, AZ, winning the $500,000 prize!
In what made for a great TV moment, the deciding vote ended up in the hands of Enzo Palumbo, who ultimately had to decide which one of his Brigade alliance members should win the half a million dollar prize.
Despite being eliminated by Hadyen just moments earlier, Enzo voted Hayden to win the game, leaving Lane Elenburg as the runner up. Ragan was also revealed to be the second Saboteur, much to the shock of his fellow castmates. He won $20,000 for completing his two week saboteur duties, which might or might not have been rather lame.
American’s favorite houseguest award ended up going to Britney Haynes. Considering the sad news that the home Britney shared with her fiance Nick Grisham burned down just hours earlier, the $25,000 award definitely went to the person who needed it the most.
Britney, 22, seemed to be in good spirits last night upon hearing the sad news. “I heard about it like 10 minutes ago. I don’t know any details about it. Obviously the most important thing is everyone’s okay,” Britney told Zap2It.
Kristen also revealed on the show that she is now single, leaving the door open for a real life romance with Hayden. “Kristen’s a cool chick too … she’s a cool girl, she’s pretty, she’s attractive, she’s hot. We’ll see, I don’t know,” said Hayden to Zap2It.

What’s a reality star to do when their 15 minutes of fame comes to an abrupt end?
Well if you’re Michele Noonan from Big Brother 11, Heat from I Love New York, Pumkin from Flavor of Love or Dunbar from Real World: Sydney, you sign up for a Playboy reality TV show titled “Foursome.”
TMZ is reporting today that the foursome will appear on the Saturday night season premiere of the show. The show, which airs on the Playboy channel, typically features a group of four strangers engaging in naked activities while the cameras roll.
Sources close to the production of the show also tell TMZ Michele and Heat ended up having sex in front of cameras. While the sources didn’t reveal what exactly went down with Pumkin and Dunbar, they do tell TMZ one of them ended up having sex on camera as well with a non-reality star.

The Big Brother 12 lackluster season finally comes to an end tonight!
One of the three remaining finalists/Brigade alliance members will win the ultimate $500,000 prize. With Hayden Moss and Lane Elenburg winning part one and two of the final HOH competition, the last part will be played live tonight, determining the ultimate HOH champion.
The meow meow aka Enzo Palumbo can only watch from the sidelines, and hope that one of his alliance members will take him to the finals. However, Hayden and Lane made a final two deal before the HOH competition even began. Will they keep their word? Or will one of them take Enzo to the finals? We will find out tonight.
Once the two finalists are announced, the jury members will get to question them live. Also coming up in the two hour finale, one of the Jury members will win the $25,000 America’s Favorite Houseguest prize. Voting officially ended for that on Monday. How priceless will the looks on the HGs faces be if Brendon or Rachel ended up winning the prize?
The finale airs at 8/7c tonight on CBS, with the all new season of Survivorpremiering right after.
TELL US – WHO ARE YOU ROOTING FOR TO WIN BIG BROTHER 12?
According to Popeater, Bethenny is still under contract with Bravo to appear on one more season of the show. This means the decision to appear or not appear on the show is completely up to Bravo, and not Bethenny.
“Bethenny’s contract with ‘Housewives’ is for another year,” a Bravo network executive tells Popeater. “Even though she has a contract for her own spin-off reality show, she needs to honor the contact she originally signed.”
And when it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub getting a spin-off show on another network, not so fast says Popeater. Apparently Danielle’s contract with Bravo clearly states she cannot work for another network for several more years without Bravo’s written permission.
“These ladies think they are superstars now and that something like a contract doesn’t matter,” an insider reveals. “Well, think again. Bravo isn’t in the business of creating stars and then letting them go to other networks. That just isn’t going to happen.”
In other housewives news, Danielle is now claiming former co-star Dina Manzo is sending her threatening text messages. “Dina texts me,” said Danielle to E! News. “Yep, Dina—who’s not even on the Housewives anymore. She’s hanging for dear life. Shut the f–k up, Dina!”
“She’s threatening me,” Danielle claims. “She’s an idiot. I don’t answer them.” Dina however denies this. “I left for a reason to get her out of my life,” said Dina. “I wish she would just do the same and move on.”
