On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s Merry Jersey-mas! Jacqueline hosts another Gorgadice Reunion, Teresa gets rowdy in court, Melissa gets a record contract, The Caroline‘s daughter has some issues letting go, and Kathy makes more plans to open a restaurant.

Things start out with preparations for Jacqueline’s holiday party/Gorgadice reunion. In the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard Ashley (yes ASHLEY!) counsels Jacqueline to stay out of Gorgadice drama. Um… can someone please counsel Ashley on how her orange spray tan is atrocious? Please, someone? She looks like a Snork with her bright orange face and high ponytail.

At the Manzo’s Santa is bringing patience and cheer and bitchy sisters. Poor Lauren is left out of Manzo sibling bonding since the boys have moved out. Farewell Ham Game! Oh, Lauren – she has officially become The Caroline, Jr – storming around and telling everyone what to do. Albie says one positive about living with Greg is that Greg won’t end up dating Lauren… Oh, really? Is it because he may end up dating Albie? I kid, I kid… After discovering a mouse has eaten the plastic Santa, the Manzos play Mariah Carey’s Christmas album, buy two all-feather Christmas trees, call Cher and Chris March and invite them to their annual Christmas drag show starring Joey G-to- the-Orga! Actually I made that last part up, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun than watching the Manzos bicker about nothing again?!

One can be assured that wherever NeNe Leakes goes drama is sure to follow. The drama in this case is the possibility that her divorce may be a publicity stunt story line created for the Real Housewives of Atlanta!

If you recall, in a recent interview, NeNe promised that the upcoming season of RHoA will finally reveal what led her to file for divorce from husband Gregg Leakes.

A week after that radio interview, the StraightFromTheA blog published photos of NeNe and husband (or possibly soon to be ex-husband) Gregg out on the town at New Orleans nightclub Belvedere Lounge during the 2011 Essence Festival! Although Gregg was hanging out in the corner and made sure NOT to be photographed with NeNe on the red carpet, they were definitely there together – and the photos prove it!

The story also alleges Gregg has been travelling with NeNe to Miami and LA in secret. Not accompanying the Leakes during these outings? Bravo camera crews!

The gossip around town is that NeNe and Gregg will never break up because they have too much dirt on each other (oh, please break up and write a tell-all Gregg!) but have decided to play the game to remain on Housewives.

Former housewife star Lisa Wu Hartwell was reportedly booted from the show because she refused to create fake drama for the series. A report came out back then alleging Bravo “basically wanted to script elements of Lisa’s life and make her amp up the drama. She wasn’t with that at all. Lisa felt like if her real life alone wasn’t enough for the network, then maybe it was time for her to go.” Things that make you wonder.

And finally, following the arrest of her son Bryson Bryant for stealing razors at a Walmart (yes you read that right), Nene visited Los Angeles over the weekend to attend the wedding of R&B singer Monica.

In fact she met up with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards and her husband Mauricio Umansky for dinner. Mauricio posted a photo of the threesome on his twitter page with the caption, “Fun dinner tonight with bi coastal housewives @neneleakes and @KyleRichards18.” Nene tweeted, “Thanks 4 supporting me & takin me out last nite n LA! Thanks 2 u guys, my stomach hurts LOL.” That pic is below!

Do you think NeNe and Gregg’s divorce has been manufactured for Bravo? Are you going to be watching Real Housewives of Atlanta this season?

Holy &%#@*! I feel like they’ve been on hiatus for an extreme amount of time, but it is finally time for the ladies of Mob Wives to reconvene for the first season’s reunion special. And holy host! Unless she was tag-teaming with Maury Povich on Jerry Springer’s set, I can’t imagine a better host for this reunion than Wendy Williams. This is going to be AH-MAZE-ING!

First off, we get to see fabulous highlights from the first season with Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, and Wendy Williams, and it’s as if I just died a Mob Wives death and the best parts of my life are flashing before my eyes.

Wendy Williams, or W Squared, begins by discussing the public perception of the show. Drita can’t believe that people are upset over her representation of Staten Island. As far as she’s concerned, it wasn’t a representation of Staten Island as it was just a representation of her personal life, so what is the big deal? I can see her point. I mean, if New Jersey were judged on the representations of the cast of Jersey Shore or RHWNJ, the Garden State would be royally screwed…oh wait. :) W2 reminds the ladies that Mob Princess Victoria Gotti has bad-mouthed the show, calling it scripted, and that clearly strikes a nerve with Renee, but she doesn’t elaborate.

Two months after an ex-manager sued her for $100 million claiming breach of oral contract, Bethenny Frankel is speaking out about the “frivolous” lawsuit.

During a recent visit to Canada to promote her Skinnygirl drink line, the Bethenny Ever After star gave an interview to the Globe and Mail during which she displayed her trademark brutal honesty. “That doesn’t bother me,” she retorts when asked about the lawsuit. “That’s frivolous and I would spend $20-million to punish him for wasting my time, the legal system’s time and that bag of bullshit. I will send back all the purses and all the diamonds and everything to sue that guy’s ass and put him where he belongs.”

And when it comes to her Bravo reality show, Bethenny was asked if there’s a part of her people do not get to see on the show. “I get very moody and grouchy,” she admits. “Sometimes, I’m from a place of no.” You don’t say Bethenny?

When asked what her estranged mother Bernadette Parisella Birk would think of her mega success (she sold her drink line for a reported $120 million), Bethenny replies, “I don’t know what she makes of my success.” She continues, “I’m sure it’s quite shocking and overwhelming to her,” adding she hasn’t talked to her “in years.”

As in past interviews, Bethenny once again reiterated her plans to leave the world of reality television sooner than later. “We won’t be doing this for much longer at all,” she declares. “I don’t want to be on reality TV that much.”

And what is Bethenny’s advice to her fans who would like to be in her shoes? “I have always believed in myself,” she states about her work ethic. “You treat every job as if it’s the most important job, and you will end up where I have ended up.”

Meanwhile ABC announced that Bethenny will return to The View talk show on Tuesday, July 12 as a guest co-host.

The isn’t Bethenny’s first time on the show as she also co-hosted last summer during which she got into a minor disagreement with Joy Behar over breast feeding. After Bethenny complained that that breastfeeding can be “the hardest thing in the whole world,” Joy stated, “I didn’t find it hard at all” and that Bethenny “shouldn’t tell women” it’s difficult.

Well that didn’t last long. A week after quitting the Jersey Shore, it appears Vinny Guadagnino realized he had nothing else going for him has had a change of heart!

Vinny was photographed above over the weekend moving back into the Shore house with the help of his roommates. So what happened? Well according to TMZ, it might have been his costars who convinced him to return to the show.

Sources tell TMZ Vinny met up with his castmates for dinner and a club Saturday night in an effort to heal the wounds between them. Evidently it worked. And despite the reports that the others were happy following Vinny’s departure (he was reportedly a pain to live with), his roommates appeared more than happy to welcome him back.

Vinny left the house/show after a fight with one of his roommates in addition to his complaints of “being homesick” and feeling “burned out.” Vinny’s castmate The Situation also stormed off the show last week after getting into it with producers but quickly returned.

MTV continues to film season 5 of the show in New Jersey while the 4th season is set to premiere August 4.

TELL US – HAPPY ABOUT VINNY’S RETURN?

Emily Maynard’s sit down interview about her break up with Brad Womack will finally air tonight on ABC during the new Bachelorette episode.

In a preview clip released by the network, the former Bachelor winner opens up and discusses her struggle to trust again two months after her split from Brad.

“Right now I just want to focus on being a mom, and not have to worry about you know, somebody is in the bushes taking pictures or if something I tell a girlfriend is going to end up in the magazine the next day, not knowing who to trust,” Emily tells host Chris Harrison in the preview below.

Emily adds, “It’s been really hard on me. You don’t know who to turn to so you end up staying by yourself and that makes you even more sad.”

While Emily reveals her focus now is on her 6-year-old daughter Ricki, other sources state she has a desire to be the next Bachelorette because she wants to be famous. In fact UsWeekly reported last week that Emily is very close to inking a deal with ABC.

Brad declined to sit for the interview with Emily but did tell PEOPLE magazine he takes full responsibility for the demise of their relationship. The new Bachelorette episode airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON EMILY’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU OVER THIS BREAK UP?

Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo recently gave an interview to AOL where Melissa expressed her hope of a better family relationship, and Caroline did was she loves to do: give family advice.

Melissa admits, “There is a huge desire on my part to make amends. I want nothing more than my husband to be with his family.” She says she doesn’t want to be the one who appears to stand between her husband and her husband’s sister Teresa. Melissa believes that she hasn’t had the opportunity to prove herself like the ladies who have been on since the show’s beginning. She says, “It’s hard especially for me being the new girl trying to come in and give my side of the story when you have other women who have been on for two seasons, that you know, people have learned to love and people have learned to get to know.”

Caroline thinks it’s “wonderful” that the women share their lives with millions of viewers. She says, “I think it’s a learning experience to teach everyone that they’re not alone in what they are going through.” She elaborates that “in struggles with families and relationships” the most important thing to do is maintain “an open line of communication.” Caroline continues, “Look within yourself to find out what you did wrong.” She’s a regular Dr. Drew!

Melissa concludes with some things we viewers can expect to see as the season continues. She reveals, “On a lot of the upcoming episodes you’re going to see a lot of good times and house husbands. You are going to see us kind of go full circle and makes amends, and I think that is what America is looking for.” My bad, I thought America was looking for drama.

Not to be overshadowed by her sister-in-law’s exposure, Teresa Guidice was featured in US Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I must say I learned a lot about dear ol’ Teresa. She was once a buyer for Macy’s, although I doubt that is something Macy’s likes to advertise. She had a crush on Jean-Claude Van Damme (remembering that picture of Juicy Joe doing the splits, there is no surprise about this one), and she had a curfew until she married Joe at age 27. Teresa wears high heels everywhere she goes, even if it’s too the beach (I think we’ll get to see this later in the season), and she lurves some club music. Again, not especially shocking. Teresa still has her Catholic school uniform that she models weekly for Joe, and she can play the saxophone. My personal favorite? Teresa’s favorite television show is “Dancing with the Stars.” Are you listening, ABC?

On tonight’s episode, “Holidazed and Confused”, Jacqueline hosts a Christmas party, although there isn’t much cheer at the Manzo residence. Lauren is feeling a little bit of separation anxiety with her brothers’ departure from the family home. Joe builds his wife a recording studio…the gift that keeps on giving. Despite their money woes, Juicy and Teresa make plans to spice up their love life…I’m guessing it will be more than just standing under some mistletoe. {shudder} A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens LiveAndy Cohen will not be hosting tonight. Taking his place will be guest host Jay Mohr. The guests are Kathy and Rich Wakile.

DO YOU BELIEVE MELISSA AND TERESA WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE AMENDS? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Drita D'avanzo and Aleeya D'avanzo

In a shocking new interview, Mob Wives star Drita D’avanzo reveals she is leaving her currently incarcerated husband Lee D’avanzo.

If you recall, Drita discovered Lee had cheated on her, you know, during one of his brief stints out of prison, on last week’s finale episode. Even worse, Drita also found out Lee had been bringing their daughter Aleeya around his mistress. And today, Drita is making it clear she is done with Lee, even stating they are no longer speaking.

“Right now it looks like I’m going to 100% [get divorced],” Drita tells the HollywoodLife. “I did speak to him and we do not speak anymore since I confronted him about it. We don’t talk.”

Drita also reveals Lee lied about the affair when she confronted him. “He said exactly what I thought he was going to say,” says Drita. “He said it wasn’t true, but I know it is. It’s just something that I don’t see him confessing to. I don’t really need his confession, I just need him to know that I’m not going to be there for him anymore.”

Drita adds that her decision to leave Lee wasn’t an easy one. “It’s not easy, but I’m too prideful and I could never lay with a man that I know was with someone else,” continues Drita. “I can’t do it. I’m still heartbroken.”

So is Drita planning to start dating again soon? “I don’t think I’m ever trusting anybody ever again,” she states. “I’d rather be by myself than with somebody I can’t trust. I’m used to being alone.” As for her message to Lee, she states this is the worst mistake he ever made. “‘Just to lose your family, it’s not worth it,’” she adds.

We will get to see all of this divorce drama play out as the second season of Mob Wives is scheduled to begin filming soon.

Moving on to tonight’s reunion episode which will have the ladies revisiting all their issues from the season. In the clip below, Drita and Karen Gravano are in the same room together since their rooftop brawl and there’s still some tension lingering between them. The reunion airs on VH1 at 8/7c and a preview is below -
