Tonight marks episode 2 of the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Last week’s season premiere brought us anti semitic comments, stalking, and one can only wonder what is to come in episode 2.
Well tonight, we will see Jacqueline and her daughter Ashley Holmes butt heads over Ashley’s bad girl behavior, while Danielle’s daughter, Christine Staub, is invited to model in NYC Fashion Week. Meanwhile Danielle decides to extend an olive branch to Dina and Jacqueline by inviting them to celebrate Christine’s success in an effort to move forward. Will they show up? Well, we’ll get to find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.
Meanwhile, the drama continues to carry on off screen for the NJ Housewives. The latest is that some of the housewives, including Jacqueline Laurita, might not return for a third season if Danielle is still on the show. Jacqueline told the NYPost, “So I’ll be honest, I don’t know that I will continue to film if Danielle is on the show.”
And then in a new interview with Steppin Out magazine, Teresa shares that Bravo is “trying to get rid of”Danielle Staub. “They want to phase her out,” she said. “It doesn’t make sense to have her on the show. We don’t hang out with her. So what’s the point?”
Well upon hearing Teresa’s comments, Danielle didn’t take to possibly being kicked off the show and had some choice words for her co-star. “No truth to this or anything that comes out of that ignorant bitch’s mouth,” said Danielle. And there you have it folks.
TELL US – CAN THE SHOW CONTINUE ON WITH THE LADIES HAVING NO CONTACT WITH DANIELLE? AND WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON EPISODE 2?
Jill Zarin, star of the Real Housewives of New York City, continues to prove that she is her own worst enemy. Just 2 weeks after amazongate, during which the housewife was caught threatening someone on Amazon.com who left her book a bad review, and then making up a fake name to give her book a good review, Jill seems to have found another shocking way to top herself. We shall call this ‘Babygate.” By the way, the above picture of Jill was taken just yesterday. That looks like a genuine smile no?
And no, this isn’t a Bethenny Frankel is a saint and Jill is evil story, but to be quite frank, Jill’s behavior both on and off the show, has been downright nuts and sometimes ‘evil.’ On Friday, Bethenny went into labor, a month earlier than expected. This was reported by several reliable media outlets and even confirmed by Ramona Singer, who said she spoke to Bethenny.
Hours later, a nut who goes by the twitter name of Tweetmaxine, posted that Bethenny had delivered a baby boy. Shortly after, Jill posted a congratulatory announcement on her facebook page congratulating Bethenny on delivering a baby boy. What really drove me nuts about this was that Jill did not have to mention the sex of B’s baby, but of course being the gossip monger that she is, and in her pathetic attempt to gossip and scoop the press, she had to include the baby was a boy.
After hearing of Jill’s post, I searched all over the internet Friday night, visited PEOPLE.com and all the major websites, only to find absolutely nothing on Bethenny giving birth. Not one single story from a major site. Visited PEOPLE.com because Bethenny announced her engagement and pregnancy through them last year, and logic told me she would likely do the same with her birth. My thought process at the time was that perhaps Bethenny did give birth to her baby on Friday, but why is Jill the first/second person to announce it before her? Shouldn’t Bethenny be the first to do this? And my instincts were right as Bethenny did announce the birth of her baby girl with PEOPLE on Saturday morning.
The main question on my mind is what the hell is Jill thinking? I’m guessing Jill’s thought process was, “Okay, I have to be the first person to congratulate Bethenny on her delivery. Hopefully when people see this, they will think that I’m not so awful, the press will include my congratulatory message in her delivery news. Hopefully the fans will like me again. Plus I get to prove I’m still “in the know” by knowing this, and I get to win cookie points with fans by scooping the press and breaking this news to them.”
Yes that’s what I believe was going through Jill’s head, all very irrational thinking, without even considering that no official announcement had been made by Bethenny herself. And as we all know now, Jill couldn’t have been more wrong. Not only did Bethenny not give birth on Friday, but her baby was a girl. Jill posted the following explanation on her facebook on Saturday:
“Yesterday [my daughter] read a tweet and blog that Bethenny gave birth. We were excited and congratulated her obviously prematurely. I should have waited until B announced it herself. Sorry.”
Yes Jill, you were really that happy, overjoyed and excited for Bethenny that you couldn’t wait to inform the world of her false delivery. Must say Jill is a pretty amazing person to be that overjoyed for someone who wants absolutely nothing to do with her. And oh yeah, for someone, who just a month ago, referred to her wedding ceremony as being “circus like,” must say Jill is truly amazing, almost saint like to be that excited for Bethenny. Now some feel she is throwing her daughter under the bus and using her as an excuse, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. And as for her daughter reading the story on a blog? Absolutely false. The only blog that posted the story on Friday, did so after Jill’s facebook message and used Jill as a source. The worst part about this is that Jill forcefully and selfishly inserted herself into the biggest news of Bethenny’s life and now most of the stories out there about Bethenny’s delivery, including ours, includes Jill Zarin, all thanks to Jill Zarin of course.
The Amazing Race finale aired last night with three teams vying for the top $1 million prize. In the finals were the cowboys, the models and the brothers.
So who came out on top? Well after a long race, which ultimately ended at the Candlestick Park in San Francisco, the Pious brothers, Daniel and Jordan (pictured far right), came out on top of the competition. Coming in a close second were the cowboys, which consisted of brothers Jet and Cord McCoy from Tupelo, Oklahoma.
The models and dating couple, Caite Upton and Brent Home, came in a distant third after having some issues with their imcompetent cab driver. The models however put the nail in their own coffin when they forgot to take their money and other items with them after leaving the Star Wars challenge, thus having to turn back around. That basically put them out of the competition.
The best part of the night came when model Caite attempted to apologize to the lesbian team, consisting of Carol and Brandy, only to have Brandy snap back at her. “I don’t want to hear sorry from you. You purposely whacked us,” said Brandy. Caite however handled the situation well, replying, “I’m the one standing here and not you.” This didn’t exactly come as a surprise because even in their post show interview, Brandy and Carol continue to hold a grudge.
Another controversy from the finale came when the Pious brothers cut in line, in front of the cowboys, at the airport. A number of fans feel this was a dirty move. Fortunately, it didn’t seem to matter, as the brothers were able to move up to first class during their flight to San Fran, thus putting them in first place.
TELL US – WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE? DID THE BROTHERS PLAY DIRTY?
Going into the last episode of Survivor, it was all but certain that Rupert and Colby from the Heroes tribe would be the ones going home, but somehow, their fellow cast mates seemed to make very stupid poor decisions, thus leading to their eliminations.
Case in point, Candice Woodcock, who for whatever reason decided to flip to the Villains side 2 weeks ago, when it was absolutely and completely unnecessary. Unfortunately for Candice, the Villains decided they could not trust her and her flippy floppy ways, so they decided to vote her off. And how amazing was Rupert’s gameplay of pretending to have an idol in his pocket?
In a new interview with TVGuide, Candice, 27, expresses regret over flipping, voting out Amanda and discuses why she joined Russell in an alliance. Excerpts from her interview below -
TVGuide.com: Did you anticipate that your switching to the Villains alliance would backfire the way that it did?
Candice: I didn’t think that that was a good argument — that I would flip back, because once you’ve already betrayed a group of people, are they really going to want to take you back? But I was worried that some of the girls in the Villains tribe would be threatened by me coming over, so I just tried to keep my head down and be nice to people and just be personable. But in a game for $1 million, it’s really not about who’s nice and who you like as a person because obviously Russell is not all that cuddly and he’s there and I’m not.
TVGuide.com: Had you known your switch to the Villains side was going to backfire like this, would you have voted differently on the night Amanda went home?
Candice: I knew going into it that I should not be voting for Amanda. I don’t know what got into me. I totally just messed up. I knew right afterward that it was the wrong decision to have made. I felt really bad about it. I think I just freaked out because I had been miserable the entire time with the Heroes. They didn’t want to listen to me. They didn’t want to play with me. I was just kind of there and they were tolerating me and I was just so tired of that. I just wanted to do something different, be able to talk to somebody different and have new people to maybe play with. Although I did end up getting along with Amanda in the end, I caught her lying to me that day and Sandra had been going back and forth about whether she was going to vote with the Heroes. … But, it was a mistake and I knew it right away.
TVGuide.com: Part of the reason you switched to the Villains side was because of Russell, so what are your thoughts on Russell looking back?
Candice: I know that I said I didn’t trust Russell 100 percent, but that wasn’t the whole story. He did show me the idol and I didn’t tell anybody else about it because he was so aggressive. If he saw you go to talk to somebody, he’d go right up to them after that and ask, “What did you say?” So that they didn’t have time to make up a story or you didn’t have enough time to agree on the story you were going to say. It was really difficult, I felt, to get around him, so I just agreed with everything he said to his face and didn’t really go off and tell other people what he said because I knew that would be dangerous for me. I thought he would have that idol for a little bit and that that was a good piece of information for me to have because he was telling me he wanted to use that idol to vote Parvati off. I thought, OK, good, I can use that piece of information and tell Parvati and then we can vote Russell off.
TVGuide.com: Do you think you will play Survivor again?
Candice: When they first asked me, I thought “No, I’m not going to do it again.” But then it just kind of kept eating away at me. So I could say no right now and if they asked me again, I would probably do the same thing and I’d have to just go and do it.

When writing this story earlier today about Jill Zarin confirming thatBethenny Frankeldelivered a baby boy yesterday, we were very skeptical and careful to not state this as fact. Apparently, we had good reason.
PEOPLE magazine, a more reputable outlet than our good ol Jill, is now confirming that Bethenny, star of the Real Housewives of New York City and her husband Jason Hoppy welcomed a baby girl Saturday morning, as in today, and not yesterday as gossiped reported by Jill.
“Bethenny and Jason are proud to welcome their new baby girl, Bryn Hoppy, born at 8 a.m. . . . in New York City,” the rep says. “She is a 4 lb. 12 oz., healthy baby. Bryn, mom, dad and [their dog] Cookie are all very happy.”
Bethenny and Jason were surprised by the sex of the baby, as they decided not to find out beforehand. As we reported earlier, Bethenny is weeks early and was actually due in June. Hopefully the baby will continue to remain in good health. Congrats to Bethenny and Jason!
UPDATE: So Bethenny has to deal with having her baby prematurely and then thanks to Jill, swerving off rumors that she had a baby boy yesterday. It’s just shocking that after all that’s been said about her on the show, she would still resort to this. Jill has however received some major backlash from fans on her facebook page. Some are below -
“No wonder Bethenny got rid of you as a friend !! She can’t even enjoy a happy moment in her life with out you stealing it from her! this was not your information to Post,” a user named Summer Breaz wrote.
And Christine Marker added, “You really are stuck in Jr High!! The fact that you announced the birth of B’s baby boy is DISGUSTING!! How dare you? You really do need to seek therapy for your need to be center of attention.”
UPDATE #2: Jill has now removed the post, announcing that Bethenny had a boy, from her facebook page, instead posting this explanation for her major fail faux pas. “”Yesterday Allyson read a tweet and blog that Bethenny gave birth. We were excited and congratulated her obviously prematurely. I should have waited until B announced it herself. Sorry.”
TELL US – DID JILL GO TOO FAR IN ANNOUNCING THE SEX OF BETHENNY’S BABY? OR WAS IT AN INNOCENT MISTAKE?
The theme of Thursday night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York City seemed to be “Woe Is Me” by Jill Zarin. Not since Vicki Gunvalson of the OC Housewives have I seen someone play the victim role so effortlessly. The more I think about it, the more I see the similarities between Jill and Vicki. They both make everything about them, and they are always the victims.
We start out this episode with the charity event planned by Countess LuAnn. The point of the oxy-moronic event is to donate coutoure dresses to the homeless (scratching head on this one). Jill’s underdog feels the need to scold Alex, and try to guilt her into apologizing to her new BFF Jill. LuAnn makes an interesting comment saying Alex shouldn’t take sides. Interesting because it seems rather obvious LuAnn has picked a side. And then Jill arrives, and the underdog informs her she has told Alex she “has to fix” things with her or else!
Jill makes a point to not talk to Alex, after all, she did vow last week to forget but never forgive! Jill’s husband, Bobby, attempting to talk to Alex was sort of sweet, but unfortunately he didn’t know the whole story. It’s however understandable for a husband to want to smooth thiings over for his wife. As I was watching this episode, it dawned on me that the issue with Jill wasn’t so much Alex’s delivery but the actual message. It finally dawned on her now that Bethenny’s DONE with her, so she decided to kill the messenger – Alex. Yes Alex was wrong in her delivery, but Jill’s continued reaction is over the top.
And then Ramona decides to scold Alex for the “bad timing” of delivering her message. This coming from the woman who decided Jill’s Kodak event was the right time and place to inform her of the company’s shortcomings. Perhaps Ramona needs to crawl back into her glass house and shut her mouth.
“Her water broke at 12:46 a.m. She’s at the hospital now,” revealed a close friend of Bethenny, who recently married entrepreneur Jason Hoppy.
This was also confirmed by Bethenny’s co-star,Ramona Singer, who tweeted yesterday, “ OMG at the airport. & just spoke to @bethenny…she’s in the hospital having the baby!!!!!!! do you think it’s going to be a boy or a girl?”
Okay, all this occurred early yesterday and as of this morning, there are no official reports from any publication on the sex of Bethenny’s baby, but low and behold, a quick look at gossip monger, Jill Zarin’s facebook, reveals Bethenny had a baby boy.
Jill posted the following yesterday evening, “Heard Bethenny had a baby boy…so happy for her and Jason. So happy for them.”
So there you have it. Jill is pretty much the only person to inform the world of the sex of Bethenny’s baby. Not even Bethenny or the people she actually talks to have shared this information. It’s good to see Jill staying true to her character. No word on who she texted to get this exclusive “gossip” but we will let you know once this has been confirmed by a reliable source.
First came news that Kendra Wilkinson made plans to sell her own sex tape back in 2008, and now comes a new report claiming the former Girls Next Door star has more than one sex tape.
According to RadarOnline, Kendra consulted a top Los Angeles law firm and set up a company called Home Run Productions LLC to sell the tape.
However, the documents referencing Kendra’s sex tape used plural terms whenever referring to the tape, meaning more than one sex tape is in existence. The term “tapes” were referenced multiple times in the documents.
Radar was also able to confirm that Kendra was successful is setting up the Home Run Productions in November 2008, while she was well into her relationship with now husband Hank Baskett, and had even publicly announced her engagement to him. This was also during the time she was getting ready to start filming her own reality show – Kendra.
Kendra has yet to comment on the new report she planned to sell her own sex tape, and as we reported yesterday, Vivid has announced it will release the tape by the end of this month.
