On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, the ladies went back in time to West Beverly High to relive their high school days of catty drama, cliques, and mean girls. Oh, I love a good time warp! The only thing missing was some killer acid wash jeans and a pouf bang!
Lisa and Ken are preparing for a dinner party to celebrate the return of Pandora and Jason from NYC. Lisa is cooking dinner (yes, it appeared that she was actually preparing food sans chef) whilst Ken assisted with the wine tasting. Lisa’s son Max got on the phone with his girlfriend and dropped an “I love you” leaving Lisa in a tailspin. While she is all but marching Pandora down the aisle, she isn’t sure about some other girl stepping on her toes where Max is concerned!
From domestic divas to people who don’t know what their microwave looks like, Taylor is making cookies from a box and needs Dana’s help. Both ladies don aprons and then poke at a bowl of unconvincing looking batter while lamenting about Adrienne’s BBQ where the notorious c-o-c-k incident occurred! Taylor mentions the upcoming “Game Night” she was supposed to host at her house but asks if Dana can take over since she has too many … issues going on. Event planner Dana is fine with hosting the big event, but will be outsourcing the planning cause she’s too busy. Keep in mind, Dana’s career is Event Planning and she supposedly has put on events like the Grammy’s.

Weeks after Joe Giudicewas photographed having an intimate dinner with a mystery woman, Reality Tea can now reveal the identity of the woman!
WhileTeresa Giudicewas busy stirring up drama attending the Posche Fashion Show on September 27, Joe, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was photographed having dinner at a local TGI Fridays with a mystery brunette. RadarOnline was the first to publish the photo.
Well our RHONJ insider is now alleging to us that the mystery lady is Davana Medina, a divorced 37-year-old professional female body builder. And while Teresa came out stating the lady photographed with Joe was simply a family friend, the insider tells Reality Tea that is not the case.
The insider alleges that Davana used to date Joe’s brother Pete Giudice way way back in the day. “She used to “hook up” with Pete Giudice when they were younger. They have known each other a long time,” says the source. “But she sure is not a “family” friend as Teresa stated. [Teresa] had no idea he was going out with her that night. It is rumored that they have been seeing each other for years.”
The same insider revealed last week that Teresa was “a mess” and very “upset” over the Joe cheating allegations, adding that she “has accused him of infidelity many times over the years.”
A different source tells Life & Style magazine: “Joe actually used to date Davana’s sister before he married Teresa,” reveals a former friend of Davana’s. “But Joe was very close to Davana, as well. He’s been at her house many times, late at night.” Yikes.
As for Teresa, she stated in a recent interview that she would leave Joe if he cheated on her. More photos of Davana below.
In other RHONJ news, Teresa is firing back at costar Caroline Manzo following Sunday night’s dramatic season 3 finale! In a blog posted on her website, Teresa claims the comments she made about Caroline in her Fabulicious book ware simply jokes (Isn’t it funny how she never does anything wrong?) and also goes on to accuse Caroline of being jealous of her cookbook success. Below are excerpts from Tre’s blog -
“I remember when I was writing my very first book proposal, Caroline was also trying to sell her own cookbook (and 5 other Housewives were too!). Caroline told me I was doing it wrong, that I wasn’t smart enough, that I didn’t have the right agent, the right co-writer, the right anything. I took her criticism like I always do, with a smile, and did what I wanted to anyway. And my book got picked up. Caroline’s didn’t. Not one publisher wanted it. I don’t know why. I wish everyone success in all they do, but I can’t help it hers didn’t get published. “
“What I wrote about the Manzos in Fabulicious! was the same thing: a joke. And not even a mean joke, a repeated joke that was made up for a fake feud on the “Rachel Ray” show…. To be honest, I don’t think Caroline is really upset. I think she’s trying to make up a reason to be mad at me and she doesn’t have anything else because I’ve never done anything to her or her family…”
Below is the excerpt from Teresa’s book that set Caroline off. Not quite seeing the humor in it…
“Unlike some of the other “Housewives,” I do not condone young girls stripping to bring in business to a car wash, old ladies in hot pants climbing up on a pole to bring their sexy back, or videotaping yourself in any state of undress at any time.”
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JOE’S CHEATING? ARE YOU BUYING TRE’S CLAIMS THAT HER COMMENTS WERE A JOKE? DO YOU THINK CAROLINE IS JEALOUS OF HER SUCCESS?

Last night’s episode of Basketball Wives: L.A. was just a whole bunch of lunch. The ladies were meeting up left and right to gossip over whoever wasn’t invited to restaurant…and nine times out of ten, that person was Draya.
Imani and Malaysia meet for lunch. Draya has reached out to Malaysia, and Imani teases that the two will be new BFFs. Malaysia is unsure as to why Draya wants to meet up with her. Sure, she was compassionate about her situation, but that hardly means she wants to be buddy-buddy. Imani thinks it is Draya’s way of being manipulative.
Gloria heads to an audition for Cedric the Entertainer’s new show. Her first reading is dubbed “a practice round,” and Gloria says it’s hard to act as if she’s flirting with her crush when she is reading with an older woman. She is praised on her second go-round, but I don’t know if this is the kind of publicity Cedric the Entertainer was hoping for with his new endeavor.

Jill tweeted: “Such great lunch with @kellybensimon as I walked home I passed by sonjas house and saw cameras. So happy it is behind me. So much ahead.”
A very brave and smart fan then tweeted to Jill that if she was tired of the so called “cameras” why didn’t she quit the show? Jill responded: “Maybe i did..but it doesnt matter. What is meant to be is how it is. I couldnt take stress and they knew it more than i did.” Just in case you’re wondering, she DIDN’T! Bravo fired her.
In other Jill news, an article appeared in Star magazine claiming she is in talks to join The Talk! (Thought she was tired of cameras?) After guest starring on the talk show, Jill told the mag, “I had a wonderful time appearing on the show, and it would be an honor and a dream to join such a respected, intelligent and successful group of women.”
While Jill has high hopes of being included in cast of respected, intelligent women (so far removed from the cast on RHONY!) her rep claims it’s not official! “She’s considering several exciting opportunities and we hope to make an announcement soon,” he explains.
Unfortunately for Jill a source close to the show debunks the rumors as completely untrue! “She’s not being considered as a replacement on The Talk,” the source scoffs. “There are lots of rumors that circulate, and this is one of them.” I guess we’ll have to wait and see!
In other RHONY news, Ramona Singer and LuAnn de Lesseps are up to their old tricks! Despite a recent report claiming the two had bonded over a HUGE pay raise, their statements to the press belie that idea! Following recent comments made by LuAnn, calling her “Ra-mean-a” and claiming that she wants nothing to do with her, Ramona is slamming LuAnn right back!
“I was quite surprised by LuAnn’s remarks I had just recently seen her at an event we were both invited to and she was more than friendly toward me,” Ramona snipes “In fact she was the one who came over to greet me,” Ramona claims.
Ramona then defaults to her old favorite of bashing LuAnn for commenting on her family (ummm.. Ramona does realize this works two ways, right?) “Luann seems to forget she attacked and went after my relationship with my husband and daughter. The reason I have a marriage of 20 years and a daughter who is an honors student is because I spend time with my family.”
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how LuAnn retaliates next. I have to say all this drama between the two of them is making me believe next season of RHONY is going to be exactly like the last! Perhaps Andy should have fired SIX housewives! Well, seven if you include Simon!

Would you watch Jill on The Talk? Do you think she’s behind the rumor that she’s joining the cast? Are you tired of the Ramona-LuAnn feud? Or are you ready for another round on RHONY Season 5?
Speaking with Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM Radio show last week, Kim announced the couple is frantically busy with a new move to NY and figuring out where Kris will be playing next season, but happy! “I feel good. It was kind of crazy to go right from our wedding straight to New York,” Kim announced. “It’s been work non-stop, and I think [Kris] finally appreciates all the hard work we do.” I am guessing by hard work she means non-stop product pimping and reality TV whoring.
TheKeeping Up With The Kardashians star does admit there was some tension pre-wedding because she wanted help planning her fantasy wedding. E! didn’t hire her a wedding planning team? “I asked him to do a few things,” Kim recounts. “And he kept on being so opinionated … but when I asked him to do something, nothing would happen … It would take him forever to do something.”
“So I think I finally just lost it and was like, ‘I can’t do his seating chart, I can’t do any of the things on his side of the family.’”
Kim also reveals she will move wherever Kris’ career takes him! Hey, reality cameras can follow you anywhere! “I would go to Oklahoma City. We’re not going to live a separate life,” she explained. And as for babies – they’re coming! “Give us a year,” Kim teased!
While everything is happy on the marriage front, not so much on the business side of things! Famed jewelry designer, Alexis Bittar, whose pieces are spotted on celebs everywhere is calling Kim out as a copy-cat! Alexis claims that Kim’s collection, Belle Noel features pieces that look eerily similar to pieces he has actually loaned Kim to wear!
“In the reality TV world, there are so many people coming out with lines to capitalize on their TV shows. They are not designers and they are just stealing,” Alexis fumed! “I passed the Dash pop up store on Broadway, and I saw that Kim’s pieces were very similar to mine, and she definitely has been taking note (of my designs),” he continues.
After realizing Kim may be borrowing his items to replicate, the designer is calling quits on allowing her to wear his goods! “The tricky thing is that we have sent pieces to Kim in the past to wear, so now I have told my staff we cannot send anything to her.” Yikes! Didn’t they have this problem with their BeBe collection also?
Alexis isn’t planning legal action – yet! And he does admit he hasn’t spoken to Kim about the idea theft! “I haven’t talked to Kim about it, the truth is she might not even know. She might be so far removed from it (the design process), and her designers just go shopping and knock things off, “ he snipes!
“But we are definitely not lending to Kim any more, she has been barred,” he concludes. WOW! Bad news for Kimmie!
Kim’s rep, of coursed, dismissed the accusations calling the similarities “purely coincidental” and claiming that Kim “is constantly inspired by her travels which she incorporates into her designs.”
I say, where there’s smoke – there’s fire! Photos of Kim’s Bella Noel Collection and Alexis Bittar’s collection are below.

What is clear is that Bravo has already replaced Peggy on the series with newbie Heather Dubrow! The National Enquirer was the first to break the story which has now been confirmed by other media outlets.
Heather, pictured above at the 2002 People’s Choice Awards, is an actress who is married to plastic surgeon Dr. Terry Dubrow. The two tied the knot in 1999, have four children together and reside in Newport Beach, CA. Heather, who used to go by the name Heather Paige Kent, also appeared on the 2000-2002 CBS drama That’s Life.
Heather’s husband Terry made the following tweet on September 27 – “Ok I’ll admit. I’m doing a major new reality program. Cameras everywhere. Very weird.” He however now claims he was not referring to the RHOC but rather a plastic surgery show he was filming for a Latino network. Dr. Terry is no stranger to reality TV as he has appeared on Fox’s The Swan and E!’s Bridalplasty.
Heather also tweeted the following to Gretchen Rossiafter attending her improv show on Oct. 6 (yes Gretchen is now doing comedy improv with Slade): “@GretchenRossi you guys were awesome! So brave ! Loved being there!”
Meanwhile, Peggy told The ENQUIRER, “I declined Bravo’s offer to return to the show. The atmosphere was just too toxic.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON HEATHER’S ADDITION TO THE CAST? YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE NEW SEASON?
The surprise of the night however came when it was revealed that Ricki, 43, had threatened to quit the show during the week, despite being the one to beat. “I feel a tremendous amount of pressure,” said Ricki while struggling with the new routine. “Has anyone ever quit the show?”
“I am going to have a breakdown. I just can’t do it,” Ricki complained. “It’s just very confusing for me. I am not getting it. I want to quit. Like I totally want to quit — and I am not a quitter.”
Fortunately for Ricki she hung in there, and even more impressive, she and her partner Derek Hough (who is rumored to be dating Lauren Conrad) nabbed the season’s first scores of 10! Following her performance of a tango that judge Carrie Ann Inaba called “brilliance in the ballroom,” Ricki earned two perfect 10s, scoring a total of 29 points out of 30.
Coming in second place for the third week in a row is war veteran J.R. Martinezand his partner Karina Smirnoff. J.R. received a good score of 26 points for his smooth fox-trot.
At the bottom of the scoreboard was Carson Kressley, who earned a low score of 20 points for his underwhelming pirate-themed Viennese waltz. Judge Len Goodman said the dance was “like childbirth: terrible while it’s happening and enjoyable when it’s over.” Ouch! Carrie Ann also criticized Carson before going on to call the dance his “most butch” performance yet.
The full scores from last night are below -
Ricki Lake & Derek Hough: 29
J.R. Martinez & Karina Smirnoff: 26
Hope Solo & Maks Chmerkovskiy: 24
Rob Kardashian & Cheryl Burke: 24
David Arquette & Kym Johnson: 23
Nancy Grace & Tristan MacManus: 21
Chaz Bono & Lacey Schwimmer: 21
Chynna Phillips & Tony Dovolani: 21
Carson Kressley & Anna Trebunskaya: 20
On tonight’s results show, another celebrity will be sent packing!
TELL US – DO YOU THINK RICKI WILL WIN THIS SEASON? IS IT CARSON’S TIME TO GO?
Well, finally – finally – we reached the season finale to the arduous, tortuous, never-ending season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And it was kinda disappointing, no? Maybe cause we already knew what was happening real time.
Things start off with Melissa meeting with Teresa’s her stylist, because she is an over-the-hill wannabe pop star and over-the-hill wannabe pop stars need to look good! Really booby and trampy apparently = good. Melissa’s stylist, or is it Teresa’s stylist, suggests she wrap a scarf around her boobs and wear it as a shirt. Right. Let me get this straight: TWO WOMEN are paying this woman money to make them look like hookers and fighting over who she styles? There is some issue about how Teresa didn’t want her to also style Melissa. Maybe she wanted Melissa to actually look good?
While Terlissa’s stylist is there, Melissa gets a call from Teresa about the family photoshoot they are planning. Melissa claims this is the first family photo shoot she and Joe have been invited to and she is excited to put the past behind her and move forward. Why do I not believe her?
