Last night’s season finale of Teen Mom was another super-sized episode that had each member of the franchise making very difficult decisions. Will Farrah take Sophia to Florida (thanks Life & Style for being a spoiler!)? Will Carly come to Catelynn and Tyler’s graduation? Will Amber reconcile with Gary? What will become of the Maci-Kyle-Ryan drama trifecta?
It’s Sophia’s second birthday, and Farrah wants to put the family stress of her impending move aside for her party. She walks into her parents’ home and her father greets her warmly. “Shut the hell up, MICHAEL!” she screams. Way to put the stress behind them. At lunch, Farrah’s mom brings up how much pain her daughter was in during labor. None of them seem to remember the day of her birth in anywhere near the same manner, but whatevs. Happy birthday, Sophia! Welcome to the cra-cra!

There’s never a dull moment for Team Frankel! This past weekend a peaceful afternoon cruise turned in nightmare when the entire team was lost at sea!
While filming scenes for the new season of her Bravo reality show (which, as of yet, is unnamed), Bethenny Frankel and husband, Jason Frankel Hoppy experienced their own personal Gilligan’s Island when they were lost at sea for 20 hours and floating out into the great unknown after a GPS unit malfunctioned!
If you can’t imagine your life without Bethenny, you’re in luck, because they were found unharmed by the US Coast Guard and escorted back to shore around 4 am. “I was on a sailboat on Saturday that was supposed to be eight hours and it ended up being 20 because were lost at sea,” Bethenny tells E! in an exclusive interview related to the incident. “The captain had to call the Coast Guard and we were hit by a big wave. It was very scary. It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic.”
The boat, which was carrying 10-people – including the Bravo film crew – strayed off course somewhere around Block Island and Nantucket. Bethenny tweeted that her made-for-TV shrink was also on board. Perhaps they were trying some immersion therapy… “We were in the middle of the deep sea with no land or anybody near us,” Bethenny reports. “The captain had never, in 30 years, called the Coast Guard.” No word yet if Skinnygirl Margaritas had anything to do with the boat straying off course!
Thankfully, Bryn was not on the trip. “I was thinking, oh, my God, Bryn! I’m not going to be there at six o’clock in the morning when she wakes up and she’s going to wonder where Mommy is and gosh, if something were to happen to me, what would happen to her. I was having horrendous thoughts,” Bethenny recalls.
BestWeekEver.TV has the activity log from the boat which features how Bethenny passed the time while stranded on the cruise from hell. Shark Piss cocktails, anyone? Only 98 calories for 4oz!
In response to their idol temporarily vanishing at sea, Bethenny’s Frankenzombies rallied around her via Twitter and the reality star and cocktail maven, happily tweeted back. An excerpt from Bethenny’s Twitter page featuring the Tweets is below.
Bethenny also posted a TwitPic of Team Frankel on the dock before their nightmare at sea. That pic is below! In other Bethenny news, she will be the subject of an E! True Hollywood Story tonight at 10pm ET.
Thoughts on Team Frankel’s adventure at sea? Do you think Bethenny’s castaway story is a publicity stunt or legitimate? Will you be watching the E! True Hollywood Story?
The affair became public knowledge last week after Michaele’s soon to be ex-husband Tareq Salahi publicly stated she had been missing and kidnapped. TMZ however reported the next day that the former Real Housewives of DCstar had simply decided to run off with Journey guitarist Neal, whom she had been having a 2-year affair with.
In their first interview since the incident became public, the two are speaking out about their relationship and how they became a couple.
“It’s like a fairy tale. It is, it really is,” said Neal to the Daily Beast about finally being able to be out in the open with Michaele. “I’m very happy, very happy after waiting for her for 15 years. Now I want to get beyond all this media hype that Tareq has put out there. It’s really quite embarrassing.”
It gets even better as Michaele goes on to reveal that she dated both Tareq and Neal back in the late ’90s, but ultimately decided to choose Tareq after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. She apparently believed she would receive better care from him.
“I chose Tareq over Neal because I thought life would be less stressful living on a vineyard in Virginia,” said Michaele. “Life on the road with a rock band…well, I thought I might not have been able to keep up.”
The two admit that the Journey concert at Tareq’s winery in Virgina early this month (Tareq was also in attendance) was a turning point in their affair relationship. “I began to see he really loved me. I had to begin to feel it completely in my soul, ” she said with Neal adding that Michaele told him she loved him that night.
“What happened was…she takes off her wedding ring…right in front of Tareq. Takes it off,” Neal explains. “And then she proceeds to come into my dressing room where I’m sitting down. I have tennis shoes on and she’s like, nine feet tall over me. And she looks down at me like she’s standing on stilts and says ‘I love you, and that’s never gonna change.’ And when that happened I said, ‘Get over here! This has taken 15 years!”
Michaele adds that she wanted to get on the tour bus and run off with Neal that night but ultimately decided to go home with Tareq to avoid humiliating him. Though she would end up doing just that about a week later.
“I didn’t want to hurt anyone, but I realized I was hurting myself,” she said of her decision to finally leave Tareq, whom she refers to as “controlling.” Neal chimes in adding that Tareq would order Michaele around, take away her money, phone and car so she had to be dependent on him, and also tell her when she could and couldn’t leave the house.
“I was going crazy,” says Michaele. “Because when you want to be with someone that bad, you start to go crazy. He [Neal] sent someone to come get me. I got on a plane by myself and I just went. I just walked away from everything.”
There’s also speculation that Neal’s July wedding to wife Ava Fabian might have been more of a spiritual ceremony and not a legally binding wedding.
Last night’s episode of The Rachel Zoe Project featured totally improvised, unscripted drama that left us all on the edges of our seats! Rachel and Rodger fought about nothing until he conceded, Joey started acting like Brad to get more camera time, and Rachel is just so over this whole giving birth thing even though she’s like 8 months pregnant. Oh, and Jerewhinah whined.
Rachel is hanging out with Joey, who has ditched his life and moved to LA to be her bitch for hire. They have a totally spontaneous conversation about her boobs. Joey can’t believe she has them and wants to touch them; suddenly, because she is about to be a mother she is protective of them and it’s hands off. Joey muses that Rachel feels like a sexy woman for the first time in her life.
Rodger assigns Jeremiah the task of decorating their brand new 7,000 square-foot home, since he has a background in design but doesn’t know jack about clothes and they might as well pay him to do something! The catch is he has 10 days to do it! Jeremiah is worried that if he messes this up he’ll lose his job, because succeeding with the decorating is the only way to prove his worth to Rachel.

Exactly two years after filing bankruptcy in 2009, to the tune of $11 million in debt, Joe Giudicewithdrew his bankruptcy filing on Monday in a New Jersey court.
The NJ Star-Ledger was the first to break the shocking news regarding the Real Housewives of New Jerseystar. So why did Joe abandon his bankruptcy bid? Well it all has to do with the accusations levied against him and his wife Teresa Giudiceby their bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok.
About a year after they initially filed, the trustee accused them of hiding assets, and concealing income amongst other things. The Giudices were accused of concealing assets including three vehicles, a boat, properties in Hillside, the family pizzeria, a laundromat and apartments. Teresa was also accused of hiding income including a $250,000 advance she received for her bestselling book “Skinny Italian.”
While in court, Joe abandoned his quest to have his millions of dollars in debts forgiven in federal bankruptcy court. The Ledger reports the change of heart came after he invoked his Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination during questioning by the trustee for his creditors about assets, income and business interests he is accused of hiding from the court.
The judge signed off on the settlement between Joe and the trustee. The court order reads, “The defendant Giuseppe Giudice acknowledges his desire to resolve the matter without the need for further inquiry or litigation, and without making any further admissions.”
However, the agreement signed by Joe does not apply to Teresa. Though it’s likely Teresa, who has been raking in the dough since filing bankruptcy, will end up dong the same.
So why did Joe make this decision? More than likely to avoid future criminal prosecution. Joe and Teresa were scheduled to face trial over the bankruptcy fraud leveled against them. If they had been found to be in the wrong during that trial, the next steps would have been a criminal case.
“They are really cracking down on bankruptcy fraud,” said bankruptcy lawyer Leonard C. Walczyk. “It is a real hot issue.”
So to sum this up, Joe is now responsible for millions of dollars of debt while Teresa’s bankruptcy case is still working its way through the court system. The trustee is still opposing her discharge of debt. A bankruptcy lawyer reveals Joe would still be responsible for their joint debts even if a judge absolves Teresa’s liability.
As stated, it’s likely Teresa will end up following in Joe’s footsteps, you know, if she wants to avoid criminal prosecution and/or prison.
