“I didn’t know she was staying or leaving,” Bensimon told UsWeekly on Tuesday. “Congratulations? I wish you well?” stated Kelly when asked what she would like to tell her former co-star.
And when it comes to Kelly’s return to the show, the 42-year-old mother of two tells Us magazine, “I was just asked to come back and we haven’t negotiated everything yet.” Adding, “But I can answer honestly I would either come back or I wouldn’t come back — we don’t do part-time.”
Seems Kelly was taking a shot at Bethenny, who will reportedly make guest appearances on the show next season. Must say, you gotta love when these fame loving Bravolebrities pretend to be contemplating returning to the show.
“Who started that? Danielle [Staub]?” Teresa asks when queried about the infidelity rumors by PopEater. “She is pathetic and has way too much time on her hands.”
The rumor which alleges Joe has been having an affair with a woman named Tara G. hit the net a few weeks ago. The rumor then grew legs once the reunion episode aired, with people alleging that Danielle was referencing a lovechild by Joe when she brought up Teresa’s nephew. But as we reported yesterday, it seems Danielle was indeed talking about a nephew of Teresa’s.
“It’s totally false,” says Teresa. “Trust me, Joe gets enough love IN our marriage, he doesn’t need to look anywhere else. Unlike Danielle, I know how to keep a real man happy!”
As for who this Tara G individual might be, a source tells Popeater “Joe is not cheating on Teresa,” adding that “there is no Tara G. People saw Joe and Teresa out to dinner with Tamra from the ‘Real Housewives of the OC’ the night of Joe’s [truck] accident and it got reported that that was his girlfriend. Tamra = Tara. But Teresa was with them both!”
In the latest issue of InTouch Weekly, Joe laughs off the rumors, stating that he and Teresa “still make love once, sometimes twice a day.” Whythank ya Joe for that TMI detail.
Back to this Tara individual, there’s still no proof that this person even exists or that Joe is cheating. We however received an email earlier this week, with someone telling us that the girl’s name is Tara F., and that she is blonde with blue eyes, 100% Sicilian and speaks fluent Italian.
The tipster also alleges that Tara F. “makes her own money working for a major fashion brand in Philly. Rumors are that Joe wants to separate from Teresa, sell the house and live with Tara in NJ or PA. She just bought a farmhouse on 8 acres in Bucks County.”
And the plot thickens…
In other news, the ladies appeared on the Today Show this morning, during which Teresa played coy on the story about her sister-in-law joining the cast. And when asked about Danielle being fired by Bravo, the ladies did not confirm or deny the story, simply stating that Bravo has yet to confirm anything to them.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE AFFAIR RUMORS? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE?
According to Bravo’s schedule, there will be no new episode of the Real Housewives of DC airing tonight, there is however news to report on the show.
The NYTimes published a story this week about Charles Ommanney, now estranged husband of Cat Ommanney. Charles, a White House photographer who has been featured on the show this season, apparently regrets doing the reality show.
In the piece by the NYTimes, Charles, who is described as a private guy, expresses his regret in appearing on the show which he says has now overshadowed his previous accomplishments, refers to Cat as his ex-wife, and says he doesn’t watch the show because watching his old life play out on television is simply “too painful.”
“I haven’t seen it, but I’ve seen the previews and I made a promise to myself to not sit and watch my ex-wife,” said Charles who is described as sounding miserable. “It’s just too painful. I’ve got eight more weeks of hundreds of Facebook requests from people I don’t know. I’d almost like to go and live in Katmandu. I have very few regrets in my life, but this is the one.”
Cat is described as a summer fling of Charles’s from 1989 who got back in touch with him in 2008 after two children and an infamous kiss with Prince Harry, a story she reportedly sold to the UK tabloids. The two have two marriages between them.
After five months of dating, Catherine followed Charles to Washington DC with her two children in tow. About a year later, Cat began filming for the Bravo reality show while Charles had become a father to her girls.
The NYTimes reports the two separated shortly after the show taping wrapped up in November, following less than 2 years of marriage. Cat’s book is reportedly on hold as she plans on moving from London back to Washington in the coming week. Cat’s children will remain in England due to the custody agreement Cat has with their father.
As for Charles, he reportedly fled the city. “Primarily I was embarrassed,” he told the mag. “Secondly, people didn’t want anything to do with it. People were like: ‘Are there going to be cameras there? I don’t want dinner. Are there people from Bravo filming it? Are you miked?’ ”
Charles adds that he ultimately did the show to make his wife happy. “But, at the end of the day, it was innocent. I wanted happiness for someone I was in love with. I put all my reservations aside and said: ‘Go for it. Do it if it makes you happy.’ Then I regretted it. I lost touch with everyone, and mix that with my marriage falling apart and the show taking over, it was very sad.”
Cat, who is shown as being very rude and obnoxious on the show, showed her human side, when she told the mag, “Every time I see Charles, especially last week, when he comes and surprises me on a photo shoot, and the look of love for him I have, and the admiration I had and in some way still have — it’s painful.”
Cat also shares she is doing some soul searching after watching her portrayal on television. “The fact that I am set up to be the villain, I could probably have lived with if I was still in my life with my husband and family,” she said. “But having all that gone has been incredibly challenging, and I’ve had to do a lot of soul searching about how we’ve got to this point.”

Self proclaimed diabolical genius Matt Hoffman found himself the latest house guest to be eliminated from theBig Brotherhouse last Thursday.
Matt, a 32 year-old web designer from Elgin, IL, was simply deemed untrustworthy and too much of a threat by his Brigade alliance members, who plotted his elimination.
In a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, the diabolical genius opens up about throwing his BFF Ragan under the bus and why he regrets it. What Matt doesn’t regret? Lying about his wife’s fake illness. It also seems Matt is still loyal to his Brigade alliance, as he seems completely unaware they plotted to get him out. Excerpts from Matt’s interview below -
Do you regret throwing Ragan under the bus? Do you think it ultimately led to your eviction?
I do regret [it] and that is why I tried to do it in as subtle a manner as possible. It doesn’t make me feel less bad, but I don’t think it had any bearing in my eviction.
You seemed to have it all: a power alliance, two HOHs, a diamond POV and your purported powers that come with being a “diabolical super genius.” Yet you still couldn’t make it to the final four. How do you explain that?
I got over confident and I abandoned my strategy of always competing and I threw a competition that I could have won. That is what sent me packing.
Why do you think the Brigade ultimately turned on you? Were you surprised?
The Brigade turned on me out of necessity. They had to vote out some Brigade member and I was the strongest one out of the four with three weak competitors.
You said that the move that caused you the most guilt was throwing Ragan under the bus. What about the fact that you lied about your wife being seriously ill? What would you say to the people who actually have a serious bone disease?
To the people who truly have this disease I say that I hope you were rooting for me to win because I was going to give you a large chunk of cash from my winning for research on the disease. To me, a lie is a lie. You can lie about your age, weight, whatever. It is still a lie.
On tonight’s episode of BB12, Ragan or Hayden will be getting the axe. More than likely Ragan, as he is not a part of any alliance in the house. Things should get interesting this coming week, depending on who gets HOH. Will the Brigade members still want to keep Lane who seems more devoted to his Britney alliance? Only time will tell.

Even more shocking? Radar reports Bravo has already began filming Melissa for weeks! A Giudice family source tells Radar, “She [Melissa] is not replacing her [Teresa]. I think Melissa is actually Dina’s replacement.”
Radar reports that not all the current housewives have officially signed off on a new season. TMZ reported yesterday that Teresa is holding off on signing on because she wants more money from Bravo. Similar to what has been reported of the NYC Housewives, TMZ states that Teresa wants Jersey Shore cash, or $30,000 per episode to be exact.
A source tells TMZ Teresa is “asking for a cut of the DVD and merchandise sales … freedom to make more paid appearances … and her salary DOUBLED.” Teresa is reportedly ready to walk away if Bravo doesn’t give her what she wants by September 3, when filming on the third season is scheduled to begin.
But back to Melissa, her addition to the show could be genius, as we reported yesterday that a source revealed to us that Melissa and Teresa do not get along. Melissa even reportedly complained about Teresa not allowing her young daughter to ride in the Limo with Gia and her friends during Gia’s birthday celebration.
As for Melissa, a source tells Radar she used to do paperwork for her husband Giuseppe Gorga as his secretary, before becoming his housewife. Talk about a come up.
The source adds that Melissa’s husband/Teresa’s younger brother is in real estate and that the Gorgas’ extravagant lifestyle will put the Giudices to shame. “Their house is actually twice the size as Joe and Teresa’s. It’s enormous! She has two live-in nannies and lives in a $4 million mansion on an exclusive lot in Montville. Teresa and Joe’s house looks like a garage compared to theirs.”
It’s likely that Danielle Staub’s nephew comment is what got this ball rolling. Something tells us this upcoming season will be good!
Krisily Kennedy, arguably the most outspoken person on the Bachelor Pad this season saw her chance at winning $250,000 fade away as she was voted out of the Bachelor Pad house on Monday.
Krisily didn’t take her elimination too well as she got angry and called out the couples, whom she believed would make the final four.
In a new interview with PEOPLE, the 30-year-old Bachelor alum speaks out on being betrayed by Dave, her thoughts on Natalie, and explains why she didn’t side with Wes. Excerpts are below -
One of the things that you said after you were eliminated was not to trust anybody. Who do you think it was that you trusted that you shouldn’t have?
In the end, I don’t think it would’ve made a difference at all. I did definitely have my faith in Dave Goode a little bit. [He] and I did have a bond where each week we would talk about who we were voting for. So, I really trusted him. I had been nervous at every single rose ceremony and that one I felt pretty safe in — and clearly I wasn’t.
Are you still interested in Dave after what happened last night?
No, no, no, no. Dave’s a great guy. I definitely lost interest in Dave after seeing the fantasy suite episode with Natalie, I will not lie. I am all set with sloppy seconds.
Do you think that relationship will last?
I don’t. I do like Natalie. She is a free spirit and she doesn’t really care what people think, which I think is great because I am like that myself. I just wouldn’t put myself in the situations that she does, so I don’t necessarily foresee that relationship being anything too longterm.
Do you regret not siding with Wes?
I had joined that group—the outsiders—and we fell apart and no one was sharp enough to actually follow through with what they said. My strategy was to figure out who the majority vote was and go with them and figure out how to save myself each week. Kiptyn, Kovacs and Dave were the majority vote that last rose ceremony, and unfortunately Kiptyn chose not to save me … so, unfortunately, going with the majority did not help me at all.
The duo, who have been shown expressing their feelings about each other on the Bachelor Pad, walked the red carpet together at an ET Emmy party this week.
“Tonight is our first night out as an actual couple,” Tenley told reporters. “We were friends first and always, always a crush. And he’s just one of the most genuine men I’ve ever met and he’s very, very consistent.”
Ever since Danielle Staub uttered the words, “Do you acknowledge your nephew?” causing Teresa Giudice to lose all control and go ballistic on her co-star, the rumor mill has been busy as to what Danielle really meant with her ‘nephew’ statement.
The most popular rumor is that Danielle was referencing a love child of Teresa’s husband, Joe Giudice, with a girlfriend or better yet Teresa’s sister, with the other main rumor alleging that Teresa refused to acknowledge her nephew because he was multiracial.
Well we can now debunk these rumors, well at least most of it. Danielle was absolutely referencing Teresa’s nephew on the reunion show. Teresa’s brother, Giuseppe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga, welcomed a baby boy back in April. Melissa is Italian which debunks that other rumor. As for the rumor that Joe might have fathered a child with Teresa’s sister? False, as Teresa does not even have a sister.
We were able to get our hands of the above photo of Teresa and her extended family. To the far left is Teresa’s brother Giuseppe, and the lady standing to the direct left of Teresa is her sister-in-law Melissa.
Giuseppe and Melissa have been married for 6 years and have 3 children together, 2 boys and a girl. On the bottom left is their son, and standing between Teresa’s two daughters is their eldest child Antonia. In between the Gorgas is Teresa’s mom who is holding up Teresa’s nephew, born this past April. Teresa stated on her Bravo blog yesterday that she was in the hospital for the birth of her nephew.
What we are hearing is that there is allegedly some tension between Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa. This might be what Danielle was getting at with her comment. A source tells us Melissa recently shared, during the airing of Gia’s birthday episode, that Teresa did not invite her daughter Antonia to ride in the limo with the girls.
There are also other incidents which point to the fact that Teresa and Melissa might not the best of buds. It is likely what set Teresa off is the fact that there might have been some truth to Danielle’s comment based on the reported tension between she and her SIL. In addition to the fact that Danielle was digging into her family business. Plus judging from last season’s table flipping, we all know it doesn’t take much to unleash the animal in Teresa. However, this can put the rumors regarding Teresa’s extended family to rest.
As for that other pesky rumor involving Joe Giudice having a girlfriend and a love child, that is still hear say at the moment, as there has yet to be any solid evidence to support this. Could it be true? Sure, but at this point, it’s all rumors.
Teresa also appears on this week’s cover on InTouch magazine, which promises to shed some light on the cheating rumors. Once we get our hands on that information, we will bring you the details.
