Oh no! It’s the news no one ever saw coming! Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro have broken up yet again.

Ronnie broke the news that the Jersey Shore couple decided to go separate ways at a Paranormal Activity 3 screening, saying: “We are not together.”

Despite the good times the couple seemed to be experiencing in Italy, things just didn’t work out. “Being in Italy, in such a romantic atmosphere, brought us together,” Ronnie explained to US Weekly. “The first week was rough — everyone was like ‘Oh, my God.’ But [Sammi and I] didn’t fight at all in Italy. [It was] probably the highest point in our relationship.”

I’m pretty sure that any regular viewers of the show expected the couple may not make it for the long haul, especially considering their constant fighting and the allegations of cheating that has plagued the couple.

Ronnie’s co-star Pualy D is however glad the couple has gone their separate ways! “I love single Ronnie!” he enthuses. “When he’s doing the relationship thing, I let him do his thing, I don’t get involved. When he’s with Sammi he’s a different person. She’s a difficult woman!” Nice, Pauly.

So far Sammi hasn’t officially confirmed or denied the break up – or trashed Ronnie publicly in any way. Darn! But she did Tweet: “Thank u to all my fans and supporters :) u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo” Ronnie on the otha hand posted a Tweet asking fans for their best breakup line. Oh, dear…

Meanwhile, the 4th season of the Jersey Shore quietly ends tonight on MTV! On tonight’s finale and 12th episode of the season, the gang gets ready to say good-bye to Italy and head back to Seaside Heights but tensions between Mike and the rest of the roommates leave him doubtful that he’ll be joining them back at the Jersey Shore.

The episode airs at 10/9c and will be immediately followed by the season 4 reunion!

THOUGHTS ON THE BREAK UP? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK UNTIL THEY GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE & REUNION?

Last night’s Survivor had it all…lost love (what will Ozzy do without Elyse?), drama (Mikayla or Edna?), pious musings (Coach and Brandon…take your pick), backstabbing (um, Albert?), a touching after-school special moment (Dawn and Cochran are finally invited to the party!), and of course, a rousing final speech (courtesy of Crazy Pants). It was epic. Oh, and there was a shuffleboard challenge.

Back at the beach, Ozzy is flabbergasted by his fellow Team Pretty members for voting against the alliance. He declares himself a free agent, and both Keith and Whitney think he’s being just a tad dramatic for taking Elyse’s elimination so personally. Dawn calls him out for not playing as honestly as he wants his teammates to play, and Ozzy is prompted to admit that he has found the immunity idol. To each his own is Ozzy’s new way of life with Savaii. The following the say, his tribe mates think he’ll come around, but the following day he’s still pouting. The Savaii tribe is in agreement that he’s being an annoying cry baby, and Dawn and Cochran are finally part of the in-crowd.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey drama rages on!

As filming wraps up on the 4th season of the hit show, the latest is a report that Teresa Giudice is actually considering walking away from the show that made her infamous!

Teresa tells In Touch Weekly that she “didn’t sign up” for all the drama. Err you kinda did Tre! “I signed up to be with my friends, hanging out, having fun. I didn’t sign on to have my family and friends trashing me,” says Teresa who managed to slam her costar Caroline Manzo in her latest cookbook.

When asked to explain why she felt the need to refer to Caroline, 50, as being only 1/16th Italian in her Fabulicious cookbook, Teresa snipes: “It was such a nothing thing to get upset over.” She adds, “It’s sad that Caroline is trying to attack my livelihood.”

As for Teresa possibly leaving the show after season 4, a source tells that mag that Bravo is loving every minute of the drama…of course and does NOT want to lose their biggest troublemaker star! “They don’t want to lose Teresa as they feel she is their biggest asset. She is ratings gold,” reveals an insider.

Ratings gold indeed as part 1 of the RHONJ reunion got the highest ratings of the season. Over 3.4 millions viewers tuned in to see the highly promoted Caroline/Teresa showdown on Sunday night!

In other Tre news, her husband Joe Giudice’s mystery date is now speaking out. If you recall, Reality Tea confirmed last week that divorced female body builder Davana Medina was indeed the lady who was snapped dining with Joe, sans Teresa, a few weeks ago.

CLICK HERE FOR MORE PHOTOS OF DAVANA MEDINA!

Davana, 37, is now breaking her silence as she tells Star Magazine there is no funny business going on between her and Joe. “We were old friends having fun,” Davana tells Star. “I’ve known Joe and Teresa since I was little.”

And while Teresa has claimed she was aware Joe was out with Davana whom she called a “family friend,” Davana tells a different story when she admits Teresa wasn’t happy about the dinner date.

“I think she’s upset because it makes her look like a jerk,” explains Davana. “But I don’t need to apologize for anything.” Davana’s comments falls in line with what a source told us about the situation, which was that Teresa was a “mess” over the Joe cheating rumors. Our source also insisted that while Davana and Joe go way back, she is NOT a family friend.

Other sources also tell Star that Teresa might have good reason to be upset. “Davana and Joe had a past together, and who knows what’s going on now?” says a source. “Teresa had better watch her back.”

Moving on to Dina Manzo, who continues to remain in the headlines after her sister Caroline finally admitted their relationship is indeed strained. After getting backlash from fans who felt she took Teresa’s side, Dina is once again defending herself.

“Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister,” Dina revealed to UsWeekly. “I had no idea of their discord until very recently.” She added: “I am at a very good place in my life with my foundation, Project Ladybug, helping so many children with cancer and my new show Dina’s Party on HGTV.”

When it comes to the state of her relationship with Caroline, Dina stated, “I’m sure in time [it] will mend itself. To quote a favorite saying of mine, ‘This too shall pass.’”

Allrighty. So we have to ask -

Today Bethenny Frankel is firing back and furious at all the recent “lies” about her in the press!

Just to rehash the last few months in Skinnygirl Frankel’s magnum opus of falsehoods; Bethenny (who is also being sued by her ex-manager) got caught in a fib about the ingredientzes in her infamous Skinnygirl Margarita, resulting in it being pulled from Whole Foods shelves, which resulted in some additional “fan” lawsuits.

Then she fibbed about how much money she sold said company for. Well she didn’t lie, per se, she just never actually corrected anyone on the $120M number, when it was actually more like $64M. Still, a good chunk of change for schlock.

Finally, Bethenny has been implicated in a lie involving a “lost at sea” shenanigan where she attempted to manipulate the US COAST GUARD for a reality show! Of course, Bethenny is not to blame for any of this! It is irresponsible journalists spewing venomous lies in an attempt to destroy her. Remember: “Everyone wants to tear down a success!”

Now, on to the latest. If you recall, last week the towboat operator who “rescued” the desultory Team Frankel from their adventures at sea (hosted by her therapist) spoke out after Bethenny dissed him on The Ellen Show, claimed she gave him a $2800 tip for his services (which he denies), and then threatened to have sex with him as a thank you. Classy.

Tim Russell, the towboat operator, who rightfully felt offended that Bethenny would jeopardize his business for her own personal gain, explained his version of the events, which dispute nearly all of her accounts. Now I am one for believing there are three versions of every story, but it might be worth mentioning THE US COAST GUARD supports a portion of his recollection, specifically the statement that it was him that aided the group and not the Coast Guard, despite receiving a delusional phone call from someone on Frankel’s boat requesting unnecessary assistance.

And if you remember when Bethenny originally “broke” the story to her fans via Twitter she stated she was lost at sea for hours and RESCUED by the US Coast Guard. Do these Tweets still exist? Indeed they do, for Reality Tea has a screen shot!

Bethenny recently told US Weekly: “My entire brand is based on that [honesty]. I felt like I had a responsibility to my fans to say something,” in response to all the allegations. Perhaps all that saying something is what is getting Bethenny in more and more trouble!

Well yesterday, Bethenny made an appearance on the Today show with poor Matt Lauer where she ranted about people wanting tear her down and gave her opinion on all the lies being told about her. “There are certain people and certain bloggers…they want something to be wrong,” she seethed. “They want it to be that I lie or cheat or I must have done if I can have this success.”

Finally Bethenny confronts lost at sea-gate and she feels the situation was very real and very dangerous. “My sound guy doesn’t know how to swim,” Bethenny explained. “They lost a lot of the tapes because of salt damage…” she also insists some camera batteries were dead. Oh no, a casualty! #getoveryourself.

Granted, a person who does not know how to swim is definitely dangerous on a boat, but does it warrant Coast Guard intervention? Apparently no, because now Bethenny is claiming they were never involved!!

“The towboat man who accused me of lying has been put on a gag order because what he’s effectively saying is that we called the Coast Guard. It’s like calling 911 without an emergency. I’d be in jail probably.” WAIT. HOLD UP – REWIND. Seriously – read that again and then go back and look at the facts.

Bethenny, HERSELF, stated that the coastguard rescued them. The Coast Guard confirms they were called and declined to assist, stating their boat was not in danger. The towboat operator only said just that – the coastguard suggested they call a tow company, which they did, and he helped lead them back to shore. For verification, see the original Tweets below. Perhaps Bethenny is upset that he outed her on making up a story about the GPS being broken because they were essentially trying to manipulate a plot for Bethenny Ever After?

In fact, even Bravo confirms Bethenny’s boat called the Coast Guard, releasing this statement: “The Coast Guard referred a private tow vessel who eventually led their boat out. When people see the episode, they will certainly see for themselves that this was very real.” Whose version of “real”: theirs or mine?

Now Bethenny is blaming Tim Russell for her “mis-rememberings” by issuing a very transparent and pathetic gag order – what is she trying to prevent him from releasing? The truth?

Bethenny went on to bash “irresponsible bloggers” some more and says her outrage is all for her fans, calling the accusations of lies, “all a bunch of nonsense.”

“You have to spend 24 hours of your life defending your honesty to your fans. [These stories are] irresponsible journalism and … a waste of your time,” she lamented to US Weekly over questions about the legitimacy of her stories.

All of this begs to ask the question – Who is crazier: Bethenny or Kelly Bensimon? Because Scary Island is starting seem a little different after learning the lies Bethenny is apparently capable of telling, despite public records disputing them, and most disturbingly that she doesn’t seem to remember the original lies she told!

Maybe she should eat something and put the cocktails down…

SO WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE? IS IT HYPOCRITICAL OF BETHENNY TO SHUT TIM UP? IS BETHENNY TELLING THE TRUTH OR NOT?


On last night’s episode of The Rachel Zoe Project, Rachel and Rodger had some human emotions as Baby Skyler is introduced to the world. It was shocking. And Nice. Keep up the good work guys!

Things start out with Mandana and Joey freaking out about Jeremiah’s firing. Mandana just doesn’t understand why Jers is so upset – I mean he wasn’t fired for incompetence, just for being too talented for the job at hand. Oh and for having dirty nails while touching couture gowns. Joey gets that Jeremiah has the sads and to make-up for it advocates throwing a “sorry for your loss” party.

Mandana grabs coffee with Jeremiah and her eyes glaze over as her “friend” tries to talk to her about how he is feeling post Zoe-pocalypse. She’s just like move on, it’s no big, you had a good attitude – can we talk about ME now? And indeed, Mandana keeps referencing Company Zoe with words like “I” and “Our” Brand. Is it Mandana’s brand or Rachel’s? She who does the most work does not always reap the most reward. But with employees like this it’s no wonder that Rachel feared maternity leave – I also found it ironic that Mandana managed to make a few Brad and Tay jabs while basically announcing she was staging a coup!

With the new season premiering on Bravo November 6, the ladies of Atlanta are gearing up for more drama (Nene Leakes will be back, after all!). However, when all is said and done, one of the Real Housewives of Atlanta proves it takes hard work, and not hair pulling, to remain in the spotlight.

In a recent interview with Sister 2 Sister, Kandi Burruss discusses returning to Season 4 in light of the recent firings of the Real Housewives of New York. When asked what to expect, she reveals, “You never know. I don’t feel too comfortable. I can’t be too comfortable.” Kandi continues, “That’s why I keep multiple things going on. In my opinion, I’ve been in the industry long enough to know that you may be hot, but as soon as you cool down, people are ready to say, ‘She fell off.’”

I don’t foresee Kandi falling off any time soon with all the business ventures she has in the works. Besides being part of the Housewives franchise, she maintains her popular radio show “Kandi Koated Nights,” owns a boutique called Tags, and has developed Bedroom Kandi, a new line of sex toys. To top it all off, Kandi is joining the likes of cast mate Kim Zolciak and getting her own spin-off on Bravo, aptly titled “Kandi Factory.” Oh, and don’t let me forget about her role as executive producer for a program on a different network…where does she find the time?

Kandi admits, “I have multiple hustles. I’m always thinking about what’s my next move.” However, her fans shouldn’t worry that she’ll be jumping off the housewives ship any time soon. She says, “I want them to keep me as part of the show.”

Giving fans a sneak peek at what’s to come, Kandi teases, “It’s so much drama this year. It’s not going to be like one big thing. It’s going to be multiple arguments and blowouts.” She continues, admitting, “There were times I had a couple words.” However, don’t expect to see Kandi throwing drinks, flipping tables or pulling wigs. She jokes, “That’s when you get me acting straight street.”

Getting away from the drama and closer to her roots, Kandi is also the head of Kandi Cares, a foundation created to help single parents “afford to do things for their children they might not be able to afford” without assistance. Kandi says, “I’m from a single-parent home and I am a single parent. I used to get in trouble when I wasn’t involved in extracurricular activities. The best thing to do for kids or any children is to get them in the most activities as possible.”

I honestly don’t know how this woman does it all…especially when you know Kim is likely still using her for contacts, studio time, and dance hits! Kandi and the rest of the Atlanta ladies return to Bravo at 9pm ET on Sunday, November 6.
