When Melissa Gorga "wrote" (as in scrawled with pink glitter pen in her trusty Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper) her book Love Italian Styleabout keeping your marriage to a poison-shrouded mini oaf hot and sexy, she had no idea that some of her very traditional, shall we say, advice may be called out as disrespectful. I mean it works for Melissa right – she gets to keep POISON! GAAAAAAG
Among the beliefs Melissa espouses, one central theme is: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to dominate." That is a direct quote from her book. And husbands want to dominate in all aspects of the marriage – from sex, to the home, their wife's wardrobe!

Kate Gosselin, who has a cook book to promote and a lawsuit to milk, is out and about. Consider yourselves warned. On the Today show, Kate talked about how much she's changed since Jon & Kate Plus 8 aired, as well as the lawsuit she filed against ex-husband Jon Gosselin. She did it for the kids!
For once (I know, I can't believe it either), I am going to reserve judgment on the following interview. In part, I think Basketball Wives'Tami Roman's chat with the Christian Post is sincere, but I can't help but think that all of these ladies are on a massive PR campaign to spiff up their tarnished images despite the same bad (albeit calmer) behavior this season. Plus, I don't want to get struck by lightning…
Talking to the magazine, Tami shares that the online petitions created by fans last season to have her kicked off the show caused her to fall into a deep depression. She says, "I was traumatized. I became an introvert and literally withdrew from everybody that loved me, the people that I worked with and I didn't know how to handle what was happening." Again, reserving judgment.
It was the power of prayer, according to Tami, that turned things around (perhaps things are still turning? No judgment, Lauren). She admits, "It caused me to just say, 'ok God help me out of this situation' and I decided to make all the necessary changes," adding, "But I needed to have people really know me, know Tami and not just the imagery that they see on Basketball Wives."
Melissa Gorga is so over these cheating rumors and the Twitter brigade that's out to tear her down. She shares this week that she's tired of it all and is moving on, hoping these people will get a hobby and live their own lives.
Melissa shared, "UGH! I don’t know about you, but I am so over the he said, she said. It’s getting very old if you ask me. The fact is I came onto the RHONJ scene talking about sprinkle cookies and re-done homes. How we got to gold-digging, stripping, and cheating is beyond me."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star explains why she is not focused on the actual rumor itself, "For me it’s not so much about the actual rumors, because they are ridiculous and almost laughable. The people that came on the show to spread them when confronted and asked for proof have NONE. The people that shout from the rooftops on Twitter and in blogs, promising to “Bring the Truth” never do! Know this: if you were in my past, you remain in my past for a reason. Contrary to what some may say, I’m not spending my time talking about you, and I honestly wish everyone well."
Lamar Odom finally broke his silence. Since the accusations of Lamar's secret life as a hard-core drug addict (and habitual cheater) came out in the press a few weeks back, Lamar has gone completely silent and has refused to defend himself nor admit the rumors. That was until his estranged father decided to chime in with his two cents about the situation.
His father was quoted this week calling Kris Jenner evil, among other things, and blaming the family for Lamar's troubles. Lamar took to Twitter for the first time since July to blast his father: "Won't continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit. He wasn't there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me."
