Housewives Hostile Takeover!

“Do mean girls grow up to be mean women?” That’s the question Real Housewives of New York City uber mean woman, Jill Zarin was asked on Joy Behar‘s show recently, where the topic was bullying among adult women. After being shown a clip of Teresa Giudice‘s infamous prostitution whore table flip, Jill commented on how “embarrassing” Teresa’s behavior was, but does admit it is “not a proud moment,” for the NJ housewife who’s flipping outburst is largely what led to her fame!

Well, I have a couple points to make here: One: Yes, Jill is an expert on mean desperate for celebrity, bullying, immature women – I mean she pretty much wrote the book on that, and Two: while Teresa is totes embarrassing, that’s a bit rich coming from the woman who’s embarrassing breakdowns and screeching fits have made her one of the least popular housewives ever. Far less popular than Mrs. Giudice!

Jill goes onto explain that the drama on Real Housewives is authentic, and often the “emotions get to you when you’re in one of these scenes,” adding “They’re not staged, but I wouldn’t be friends with some of the girls on my show had I not been cast on a reality show. We have to, sort of, travel together or be together and what really happens between us is real.”

“ … but mean girls, I wouldn’t really be friends with them, so there wouldn’t be any meanness, but sort of when you are thrown into together, these things happen.”[sic] Wait – isn’t Jill biffles with Kelly “Krazy-legs” Bensimon and [Countess] LuAnn de Lesseps? And wasn’t Jill previously friends with Bethenny Frankel and Ramona Singer before she possibly, maybe, perhaps out-mean woman’d them? Ok, that’s what I thought!

Moving on, the RHoNYC ex? stars, Jill and former? fellow castmate Alex McCord are preparing for their post-housewives careers by heavily hawking their wares. Jill’s Skweeze Couture, which is a distant second place finisher to Bethenny Frankel’s Skinnygirl Shapewear line, recently debuted a bridal collection which: “has little blue hearts sewn into it, so you get something new and something blue, and it takes off about two inches, so everyone looks amazing.”

According to Jill, Skweeze is “projected to reach $50 million in sales by 2012,” and she has plans to add shoes, sunglasses, handbags, skin-care products, perfumes, watches, and jewelry in the near future! Beat that, Frankel! Will these two ever stop competing against each other?!

“She is really building an empire, brick by brick,” alleges a source. “She will be joining other reality stars like Jessica Simpson and Lauren Conrad.” Ok, seriously who is buying this stuff? Her mom? Bawby? Who?

Alex McCord is also branching out into product pimping now that her modeling attempts have failed and announced she will serve as President to Aluxe Home, a bedding company featuring 18 lines of bathroom towels and 24 different bedding selections – all made of 100 percent Egyptian Cotton and manufactured in Egypt.

“This new venture was cemented when we visited and inspected the factory last month to ensure that we were happy with its quality, professionalism and working standards for its employees,” Alex stated via press release.

Add this one to the list of housewives products we can all avoid and roll our eyes over! Here’s hoping it goes more successfully than Simon Van Kempen’s mean tweeting social networking or singing careers!

Can you believe Jill Zarin was asked to serve on a panel about “mean women?” Can you believe Jill thinks she is going to be selling $50M in products by next year? Delusional Much? Do you think Alex’s new “career” indicates she may be leaving RHoNYC?

After going from a nobody to a fairly famous reality star in a span of less than 2 years, it appears Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D now feels he is really famous!

Just how famous you ask? Well according to him, too famous to do Dancing With The Stars! Wowzers. The Huffington Post interviewed Pauly D, during which he pretty much dissed the ABC hit show, implying it is for has-beens. He does have a point no?

Citing that he has a hot career as a DJ, which brings him over $10,000 per gig, Pauly D, 31, (yes he’s really 31-years-old) stated: “I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.” Ouch.

The topic then turned to his costar Snooki and the talks that she had signed on to do the show. “I texted her congratulations about doing ‘Dancing,’ but she texted back ‘am I?’” Pauly D revealed.

In fact, new reports are now stating the Snooks, 23, will NOT be appearing on the show after TMZ prematurely confirmed she had signed on for the new season.

There had been rumors that Snooki wanted more money, but a report by the Hollywood Life blog states the Snooks was simply too busy to do the show. Not sure how this bodes for the so called celebs on the show if Snooki has a busier career than they do.

“They have finalized this seasons cast and Snooki will unfortunately not be doing this season of Dancing With The Stars,”a source stated. “There is no drama between producers and Snooki. She just won’t be available to appear on the show. There is still hope they can get her in a future season though.”

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US – IS DJ PAULY D TOO FAMOUS FOR DANCING WITH THE STARS? DISAPPOINTED SNOOKI WON’T BE ON THE SHOW?

The gig is up for former Real Housewives of DC stars Tareq and Michaele Salahi, well at least when it comes to their winery.

According to a new report by RadarOnline, the couple’s once lucrative Virginia Oasis Winery is now scheduled to be auctioned off due to bankruptcy.

An online Virginia auction calendar has the Salahi’s winery, Oasis Vineyards, listed for auction on September 18 by order of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

Assets to be liquidated will include items such as: 60+ Oak Barrels, DeFraneschi Grape Press, Ice Machine, Dish Washer, approximately 5,000 bottles of Sparkling Wine, 100 cases of Cabernet, amongst other items.

And just a month ago, the Salahis were sued for fraud by a woman who claimed she was defrauded out of the money she paid to tour Virginia’s Wine Country.

In the meantime, TMZ reported last week that the Salahis have taken their famewhoring ways to Beverly Hills by moving there. Can they afford to live there? It gets even better as the Salahis reportedly had their manager contact Bravo to see about getting them on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. But fret not, as they were flat out rejected by Bravo! Andy Cohen is said to have replied, “We are not interested.”

Michaele, who might or might not have TMZ on speed dial, also told the site that at age 45, she is now trying to have a baby with husband Tareq.

She revealed the plan is to go with a surrogate because she suffers from “multiple sclerosis.” She apparently feels that her “condition” combined with her age is not safe for a baby. Where’s the Captain Obvious cap when you need it?

Driving to Spring Oak, Jenni enthusiastically describes her friend Star, an “animal communicator” to Jeff. Can I have one for my Basset Hound?

PEOPLE magazine has released the official Kim Kardashian cover for her wedding issue!

PEOPLE, which reportedly paid a now estimated $1.5 million for the exclusive pics of Kimmie’s wedding, made a curious decision to exclude Kimmie’s husband Kris Kardashian Humphries from the cover. A bit of an unusual move. Perhaps the mag feels they will move more copies with just Kimmie. They gotta recoup that $1.5 mil somehow!

To go along with the images, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also granted the mag an exclusive interview about her wedding day.

“It was like we were in heaven,” Kimmie tells PEOPLE. Mr. Kardashian adds: “I’m going to remember how perfect it was.”

Kim, 30, who wore a custom-designed Vera Wang ball gown (she wore a total of 3 Vera Wang gowns for her big day), reveals she “felt like a princess.” She however adds, “Glam aside, that wasn’t our main goal. It was really about our family and each other.” Well family and each other alongside the E! camera crew and the reporters.

In fact UsWeekly, which reported yesterday that the wedding was “awkward” due to all the camera crews, is now reporting today that Kris’ family “looked appalled” during the made for TV nuptials.

“It was so hard to take it all seriously,” says a guest. Another insider adds that Kimmie even told guests repeatedly: “This is our version of the royal wedding!” Wowzers.

A pal adds: “Everybody felt awkward, like it was all for the cameras and more like a TV show than a wedding.” And while Kris’ family “mostly looked appalled by the entire thing,” they reportedly “cheered when Kim and Kris were pronounced husband and wife.”

The new issue of PEOPLE hits newsstands Friday while the E! network will air “Kim’s Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event” on October 9 and 10, 2011. Below is a photo of Kimmie in her Vera Wang reception dress!

TELL US – ARE KIMMIE’S WEDDING PHOTOS WORTH $1.5 MIL? SURPRISED KRIS’ FAMILY LOOKED APPALLED?

UPDATE – PEOPLE magazine’s assistant editor, Jen Garcia, defended the decision to axe Kris from the cover. Jen told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday morning: “It’s all about the bride. We wanted her. It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover. He’s got a little height on her. It’s kind of tough to get them in the (same) shot.”

On last night’s Teen Mom, Maci has baby fever, Catelynn and Tyler work towards another visit with Carlie, Amber fixes up her house AND gets a date, while Farrah is going back to Cali, to Cali, to Cali.

Maci has dropped most of her classes to spend more time with her son, so it makes sense that she takes him to daycare. While I agree the little guy could benefit from socializing with other toddlers, wouldn’t putting him in daycare free her up to actually attend school? And now, does she even have much school to attend? Ridic. Bentley enjoys the classroom, but has a meltdown when Maci and Kyle leave. Maci hates to see him so upset, but Kyle is able to go back into the classroom to calm him. Awww, Maci thinks he’d be such a great dad if when they decide to pop out some babies.

According to a new report, Jacqueline Laurita is filming her final season with the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

As we reported weeks ago, Bravo is currently filming season 4 of the RHONJ while the 3rd season is still on the air. A rarity for a Housewives series.

Well the Rumor Fix blog is now reporting that Jacqueline is filming her final scenes for Bravo.“It is confirmed that Jacqueline Laurita is now filming her LAST season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey,” states the blog.

“Jacqueline’s six-year contract is still in full force and effect and she is now filming limited scenes for Season Four but she does not want to return for Season Five. She just wants to have her normal life back and she’s hoping that Bravo will allow her to break her contract for the remaining two seasons,” adds the Rumor Fix.

Jacqueline, 41, didn’t help matters when she tweeted days ago, “I’m thinking I’d like 2 go back 2 being a normal family.I miss those days.I’d like us all to focus on positive things & positive people.”

Perhaps she’s over the drama with daughter Ashley Holmes and all the backlash. It has also been rumored that Ashley is barely filming for the new season as Jacqueline and hubby Chris Laurita kicked her out of their home. Ashley, who wants to move to California, is reportedly living in Texas at the moment. And let’s face it, while Jacqueline’s very likable, she’s mostly drama free on the show and doesn’t seem to have much of a storyline without Ashley.

Another factor could be wanting her privacy back. Just days after Ashley’s dad, Matt Holmes, appeared on the show, his arrest for arson, insurance fraud, and money laundering quickly made headlines. Only time will tell if Jacqueline is indeed leaving the show a la Dina Manzo. Jacqueline’s reported exit might also explain her recent blog in which she completely calls out her BFF Teresa Giudice.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT THAT JACQUELINE IS LEAVING RHONJ? IF TRUE, WILL YOU MISS HER?

UPDATE - According to Ashley’s twitter, she moved to LA yesterday. Ashley tweeted yesterday, “I’m moving to LA today!” later adding, “Been here for a total of 10minutes and i already LOVE my new home! #LA !!!!”

Ashley also wrote on her Celebuzz blog, “I have an internship waiting there for me with Buzznet & Celebuzz. I recently formed my own LLC. I’m currently working on my own clothing line that I hope to launch by 2012. I am working on building my own website, that will also be up and running soon. I am also writing a book. I think the content of the book is going to surprise a lot of people, no one REALLY knows me the way they think they do.”

Here’s to hoping she has her finances in order because in the words of Caroline Manzo, “You don’t want to hit rock bottom in California.”
