Melissa Gorga is doing her Bravo duty and pole dancing for the network like a good little devotee.
Amid rumors that Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile are not returning for season 5 of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa spoke out to In Touch Weekly insisting those rumors are simply not true! Gotta keep the fans guessing to keep controversy and interest alive, right?
"Caroline is returning,” Melissa says. “Okay, there you go. Caroline is back and so is Kathy."
Just this week a flood of rumors started emerging that Caroline and Kathy were leaving in order to be replaced by friends of Teresa Giudice. Also possibly making a return is former supervillian Danielle Staub.

I think we all learned a good lesson on Real Housewives of Miami last night. Thomas Kramer's house is no place for Housewives of any strife, location, or wig-wearing persuasion.
The creepy, weird older guy who hosted the ladies of Atlanta on an unforgettable girls weekend two seasons ago, once again did Housewives no favors by hosting the ladies of Miami for an atrocious dinner party where the lest desirable thing at the table was Thomas himself. Look dude, if you think telling an 80-year-old woman to sit down and shut-up because she's nearing her expiration date is going to get you a reality show, you're mistaken.
Things begin at Lea Black's house with Mama Elsa and a case of missing mozzarella. Apparently Mama Elsa wants Lea and Marysol Patton to make up, but Lea has a conflict of interest – or two. One of them is 8 foot tall drag queen in a 40" wide wig named Elaine Lancaster. And the other is that essentially that The Patton Group screwed up The Black Gala two years in a row and there was nary an apology in sight.

After last night's episode of the Jersey Shore, MTV hosted a Restore the Shore special to aid victims of Hurricane Sandy. Of course, the network wanted to keep us abreast of all things Jersey telethon, so they updated during commercial breaks. Manning the duck phones are Teen Moms Catelynn Lowell and Maci Bookout, as well as Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa and Poison Gorga. You've got to love when two
worlds networks collide.
I must say that I appreciate Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, DJ "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Deena Cortese, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino are doing for their beloved shore. You have to admit that these kids have come a long way. Snooki was even a guest host on Anderson Live yesterday, and she actually sounded slightly intelligent and not at all the cooch flashing train wreck of seasons past. Baby steps.
We begin with Rawn, Snooki, and Deena working at the Shore Store. The meatballs are already hoping to bail on their shift, and hard-working Ronnie is beyond frustrated. He and Danny retaliate by donning trucker hats and ditching work like true meatballs. Mike calls his sister and dishes on Paula. He wants a classy girl, and his sister gives him advice on how to proceed with "shocking" Paula. A giant storm rolls in (which I realize is nothing compared to the super storm), and Snooki and Deena are freaking out. Down the boardwalk, Ronnie and Danny drink fruity cocktails and laugh about the chaos the girls are likely unleashing on the store.

"It definitely affected the show, but what’s funny is it affected it in a good way," Drita D’Avanzo said. "Whatever beef or nonsense was going on, it just disappeared. Everybody was like, texting each other, seeing if we were all okay, we were all helping and donating and cleaning and doing everything, it was nice to see that. Everybody put all their problems aside."
We get our first look at the new show in this highlight reel released by Bravo and now I see why Lisa was able to remain on season 3 of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills AND tape a spinoff show – because (from the glimpse in the video) she won't be the main focus on Vanderpump Rules! After watching the trailer, it seems as if it will be more about the drama in the lives of her employees at Sur. I have to admit that I have the sads after watching and seeing that Lisa's fabulosity won't be the central focus.
Take a look and tell us what you think. Will you tune in for "employees gone wild"?

Does the world really need one more teens-a-mess reality show?
According to Lifetime, yes. The network picked up eight hour-long episodes of a new series titled Teen Trouble. The show's host, Josh Shipp, is a teen behavior specialist, motivational speaker, and former advice correspondent for MTV's Total Request Live. He's also the author of The Teen's Guide to World Domination: Advice on Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Awesomeness.
In Teen Trouble, Josh will "embed himself" into the "hidden lives" of teens who are abusing drugs and alcohol, stealing from family, and otherwise breaking the law. He will then confront the teens and parents with a few harsh truths.
