Reality Tea

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice took a break from gracing magazine covers touting fake divorces and yet to be conceived pregnancies this week to actually open up about those topics during a “Twitterview” with her fans.

In the twitter interview organized by Celebuzz yesterday, Teresa revealed her regrets in doing the RHONJ, talked about those pesky divorce rumors regarding her and hubby Joe Giudice, and also revealed if she’s really planning to have more children.

When a fan asked Teresa if she regrets doing the RHONJ, she gave a surprising reply of yes. “Gonna be honest, I’m thankful for the blessings it brought but yes, I do regret it esp when they cast my family :(,” wrote Teresa adding, “I would never have done the show if I thought it would be me & my inlaws. No fame or opport is worth it. #family1st.” This isn’t the first time Teresa has made mention of the show’s adverse effects on her family though she has yet to mention any desire to leave the show.

When it comes to her marriage with hubby Joe – some tabloids have them divorcing – Teresa revealed they are doing great. “We are great, thank u! the stuff in the tabloids ab us divorcing is complete BS. our family is together & happy xx,” she wrote. So can we expect a new Giudice baby in the future, a son to be precise based on last week’s In Touch cover story featuring Teresa? Well she reveals uncertainty. “I’d love a boy and I know Joe would too but I think I’m done. If it happens it happens, but 4 is enough!”

Teresa also shared she is currently working on her third cookbook. As for her favorite housewives series other than the NJ series of course, Teresa reveals she’s a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Love Lisa & Kyle,” she added.

In other NJ news, last week Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorga revealed her 5-year-old daughter Antonia Gorga will be making her acting debut in a Snazaroo commercial on the Nickelodeon network. Melissa also posted photos of her 3 kids visiting the Jersey Boardwalk this weekend. Those pics are below!

And this week, Teresa also revealed her daughter Gia Giudice participated in a dance competition in Florida during which she came in first place. Teresa blogged, “Gia and I are finally home from Florida. We had such a great time and she did so great! She won 1st place and got 5 stars for her team, then she got 4-1/2 stars out of 5 for her personal routine which she only learned in February.” Photos of Teresa with Gia below!

And finally, below is a video of the NJ Housewives, Caroline, Teresa & Melissa, during their appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday -

Jeff Lewis returns in Season 5 of Flipping Out and oh how I’ve missed him. Never leave me again, Jeffrey Lewis.

Opening the show we learn, Jeff has sold his Valley Oak house and is living in a sacreligious rental called West Knoll, because his schedule is too cray-cray to find new digs. Perhaps if he stopped micromanaging Zoila so much, he’d have more time, but something tells me he’d NEVER cut that out of his schedule. Jeff threatens Saint Zoila with a walker if she doesn’t stop resting her hands on the walls of his pristine rental – hey, the man doesn’t want to forfeit his security deposit! Zoila and Jeff go back and forth over who is more lucky to be stuck with the other one – Zoila is more lucky, no Jeff is more lucky. Personally I feel most lucky to have you both back in my reality TV life.

Sarah (with her signature garish makeup) and Trace are also back, and they are fighting over who gets to sit further away from “crazy” aka Jeff, who is apparently now screening their emails. I bet Jeff Lewis Design blocks Facebook at the office. Lame! Sarah is still looking for more project manager duties, and has been handling a lot of the client needs with (surprisingly!) few mistakes.

According to a new report, Bachelor “winner” Emily Maynard, 25, is in talks to be the next Bachelorette with sources revealing it’s almost a done deal!

UsWeekly is reporting the newly single Emily, who recently confirmed her break up with Brad Womack, is angling to become the next Bachelorette just a month after splitting from Brad.

“She hasn’t officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal,” a source reveals. And despite Emily’s recent comments that appearing on the series was “the last thing on my mind,” the insider adds that Emily is hoping to use her stint on the show to jump-start a broadcast career… of course. “She wants to be famous,” the source says of the single mom to 6-year-old daughter Ricki.

And with the show ratings down about 10% this season with the boring Ashley Hebert, ABC execs reportedly have high hopes for Emily: “They know she’s a fan favorite,” reveals a source.

In addition to boosting her profile, Emily is also reportedly ready to move on from her ex-fiance Brad. “He has issues, and you could tell from the start that it was never going to work with Emily,” another insider reveals. A pal however insists Emily “gave it everything she had.”

If Emily does indeed become the next Bachelorette, it is likely ABC will film her season right away instead of waiting until next year. Plus in looking at Ashley’s final four, none of the men really seem like Bachelor candidates.

Forget the grenade whistle, sound the litigation trombone! As Jersey Shore progresses, the gorilla juicehead gang seems to be more about lawsuits than bathing suits. The Situation finally comes to a resolution with his estranged father, but Pauly D has been strapped with a lawsuit to the tune of millions of dollars. It’s a total GTL situation: Guidos Turned Litigants. Hey-oh!

It seems Mike Sorrentino’s recent Situation with his father has become a lot more civil. You may recall the older Sorrentino was basically exploiting his son and using his son’s fame and popularity to gain notoriety and some extra cash with his website TheConfrontationSite.com. So wrong. If I were Mike, I’d be calling my dad the “Bitchuation” but that’s just me. Luckily, according to TMZ, the lawsuit Sitch brought against his father with claims of using the star’s name, image and likeness without permission is being dismissed much like a grenade after a late night hot tub session.

Frank Sorrentino was sued by his son after creating a website, now defunct, which bashed the Sitch. Frank believes he was the victim of a con artist, Robert Fletcher, who hoped to capitalize on the Sorrentino’s rocky father-son relationship. Frank is apologetic and claims, “I regret getting involved with Robert Fletcher and I am sorry that I participated, to the detriment of my son Michael.” It’s worth noting that the terms of the settlement required Fletcher to pay Mike $5000 while his father got off scott free with just an apology. Blood is apparently thicker than water at the Shore.

Meanwhile, DJ “Pauly DDelvecchio finds himself in $4 million worth of legal woes. The New York Post is reporting that Paul Lis, a DJ out of Connecticut, is suing Pauly D for his part in damaging his business. Years before Pauly D was lugging cases of Aqua Net across the turnpike, Lis had trademarked the name “DJ Paulie.” After forty years in the disc jockey industry, Lis claims that the Jersey Shore information with which MTV flooded (and continues to flood) the internet has made it a virtual impossibility (literally…bad pun) for potential advertisers and clients to find his site. Lis’ attorney elaborates, “He formally trademarked the name ‘DJ Paulie’ and then came the ‘Jersey Shore’ which basically wiped him off the face of the map.”

Lis has even sent a cease and desist letter to the network but got no response. During this time, Pauly D has applied with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to secure a copyright for his name, claiming it’s a very different business and there is no chance for likelihood of confusion with the original Paulie’s registered moniker. Shockingly, Pauly 2.0′s multiple applications were denied. As someone schooled in the excitement that is trademark law, I can say the USPTO doesn’t often deny applications for no reason.

Lis’ suit reaches beyond Pauly D to the deeper pockets of Delveccio’s employers, MTV and The Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, claiming that by employing the young high-haired DJ, the entities are further burying the original Paulie’s name and livelihood. The allegations in the complaint assert that “[t]he reality television show [follows] a group of young adults pursuing a debauched lifestyle suggestive of loose morals, violence, intoxication and liberal profanity — the exact opposite of the reputation the Plaintiff, ‘DJ Paulie’ that[sic] he had spent decades cultivating.”

While I’m thrilled to report that the Situation and his father have buried the hatchet, I have just one word of advice for Pauly D. Give up your dream of being the next big DJ. Forget DTF (Dudes Trademarking Falsities) and RUN, don’t walk, to the USPTO to copyright “Cabs ah he-ah” and “T-shirt time.” Just putting those phrases on t-shirts, license plates and Mardi Gras trumpets will keep you comfortable, coiffed and hot-tubbed for the rest of your life.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SITUATION SETTLING HIS DISPUTE WITH DEAR OLD DAD? DO YOU THINK DJ PAULIE’S LAWSUIT HAS ANY MERIT AGAINST DJ PAULY D?

Luann de lesseps kids noel and victoria

A week after debuting a surprising new hair color, Real Housewives of New York City star Countess LuAnn de Lesseps is explaining why she opted for a new look!

LuAnn debuted her blonde hair last week during the premiere party for her latest video for the single Chic C’est La Vie. “I wanted to try something new,” said Lulu to Radar Online. “I’ve always wanted to be blonde. Every girl dreams of being blonde some time.”

LuAnn adds that she also made the change to look like a certain Miss Marilyn Monroe. “I wanted to look like Marilyn Monroe for a minute!” laughs LuAnn. “I’m definitely going to keep the new look for awhile.”

So does her beau Ross Geller Jacques Azoulay approve? That answer is yes! “He’s having fun with this other woman,” she jokes. And the mane expert responsible for Lulu’s blonde hair, Ted Gibson, also spoke out on her new look. Ted believes this new look makes the Countess look much much younger. “I think she looks 20 years younger. It looks sexy and fresh,” said Ted. Uh uh.

LuAnn is pictured above with her two kids Noel de Lesseps and Victoria de Lesseps at the June 29 premiere of Cirque du Soleil ‘Zarkana.’

In other RHONY news, Jill Zarin made her acting debut yesterday on USA Network’s White Collar. Jill played a speed dater on the episode and according to critics, her performance was lackluster. Gawker describes Jill’s acting debut as “underwhelming,” and the Hollywood Reporter stated viewers were “bewildered” by Jill’s acting citing some of the twitter comments below -

Kiki (@kikinitwithkiki): “Jill Zarin on #WhiteCollar? Oh, Jill, don’t quit your day job. #RHONY”

Grace Yu (@graceyu): “Why is Jill Zarin on #whitecollar?”

Rachel Leigh (@TheRachelLeigh): “What the heck is jill zarin doing in an episode of white collar? Im a fan of jill but celebrity-wanna-be much? #sticktoyourdayjob.”

But we’ll let you be the judge. Below is the video of Jill’s cameo!

Mob Wives Cast - Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Renee Graziano, and Carla Facciolo

Season One of Vh1’s Mob Wives might be over but the drama sure isn’t! In a post-season, pre-reunion interview for Complex the cast of Mob Wives give their opinions of all the fights, drama, and friendship destruction and reveal what’s next for the ladies.

As for how the cast reacted to having cameras follow their every move, resident badgirl, Drita D’avanzo describes it as “stressful”, describing herself as a private person who kept her identity as the wife of a gangster secret for years: “I worked in [Saks Fifth Avenue] for seven years and no one ever knew anything about me. They probably, honestly, would be shocked. I mean, seven years in the same place, 55 hours a week with 55 women, and you never tell anyone that your husband was in jail or that you’re a single mom—they’re gonna be shocked. I never used profanity!”

Renee Graziano, on the other hand, called the experience “therapeutic,” proclaiming: “I got to learn a lot about myself.” As for how the editing process portrayed her, surprisingly Renee is ok with it: “At first, I was a little uptight because people weren’t seeing the side of me… I’m very funny. I’m very, very loving. I came off extremely hard and, I think, cold. But as the show has unraveled, you get to see who I really am and I love it.”

Karen Gravano gives the status of her book Shadow of the Bull, which we can expect to find in clearance racks bookstores this fall! Karen explains she is meeting with her ghost writer and using the book to establish her own identity outside of being Sammy The Bull’s daughter: “Not by any means am I saying that I don’t love my father, but you want to have your own identity, you don’t always want to be your mother’s child or your father’s child.”

As you could expect, she and Drita are still not speaking following their explosive season-ending blow-up, but Drita admits she is sorry for the way things escalated: “Physical violence isn’t going to solve anything, and I think it’ll make it worse, so I’m mad at myself that I allowed that. That’s me, that’s my temper, but I want to change that about me and I’m not happy it happened. Karen and I don’t really talk right now,” but Drita is still friends with Renee and Carla Facciolo, of course.

The ladies also divulge they were picked up for a Season Two and will begin filming very soon. As for what to expect, according to Carla even the cast doesn’t know: “You know what, I don’t even know what to expect yet, but I am excited about it. It’s weird because when we ended off, that [fight] happened with Drita and Karen, and I just want everything to try and like get back to normal in Season Two so everybody can just hang out and be happy again and be friends and have a good time!” Well, don’t hope for that too much or you definitely won’t be doing a Season Three!

Drita has some news though for Season Two – something major is on the horizon: “For me, you can expect a huge life change, an event. It’s going to be shocking, probably.” All my bets are on D-I-V-O-R-C-E based on some interesting posts via her Facebook page. If you recall, Drita discovered on the finale episode that her husband Lee D’avanzo had cheated on her.

Drita posted the following on July 2, “I just wrote Lee a letter~ sayn now your ho can send packages and visit you…hope she can keep her legs closed while your away too. Good Luck Asshole.” And on June 29, she hinted about a possible break up. “I think breakups ae like a broken mirror. You’ll probably hurt yourself more by trying to put it back together. Get a new mirror!” Season 2 should be interesting!

And speaking of Drita, she will doing something new for reality stars – hawking her own product: “I have a cosmetics line coming out. I’ve always been in the field of make-up [and] I’ve modeled, so all these things now I can do.”

The Mob Wives Reunion will air July 10th on Vh1 at 8pm.

So will watch Season Two of Mob Wives? Do you think Drita will divorce Lee while he’s in prison?


They’re ba-ack! The original Teen Moms, Maci Bookout, Amber Portwood, Farrah Abraham and Catelynn Lowell returned last night for their third season as the first Teen Moms.

Maci is taking time off from work, and she and baby Bentley are living in Nashville for the summer to be close to new beau Kyle. She is concerned because Ryan seems to have slacked off with his child support payments. Maci calls a friend to complain, and they joke about the possibility of him going to jail. Maci doesn’t want future Bentley (at age eight, to be exact) to ask if Dad’s ever been in jail only to find out that yes, Dad was locked up for not providing for him. Is jail something that normal third graders inquire about in regard to their parents?

Farrah and her mother have continued counseling to mend their volatile relationship. Farrah is juggling culinary school, waitressing and modeling…oh yeah, and being a mom to baby Sophia. She reveals she’s ready for a big change…a move perhaps? College? Volunteering for a good cause? Um, no. A boob job. Seriously? Can I get a slow clap for MTV for making this girl a TV “star” and providing her with the money to “fix” the breasts that her toddler so selfishly changed by being born? She plans to take out a loan because, duh…she deserves to treat herself.
