A small part of me wonders if all the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey is a publicity stunt. I just cannot believe family members and friends can be so vitriolic towards each other. After some serious drama during the taping of The View last week, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continued their escalating drama on Twitter AND in their personal blogs.
On her Fabulicous website, Teresa told her side of the story about why she demanded a solo taping on The View. Teresa explains that she wasn’t aware of what Melissa and cousin Kathy Wakile said during their segment until watching it from her Miami hotel room yesterday.
“It’s hard to get your thoughts straight when you’re being interviewed for TV — especially when you’re trying to talk to 5 women at once like on The View and there are no ‘retakes.’
I only heard today that Melissa called me a liar or a fibber or whatever, when the press started calling me for my response. I’ve been telling the same story–the truth–since it happened. Suddenly Melissa has a new answer for it, fresh from her new PR people: it’ a lie and it’s my ‘crutch.’ Are you kidding me?”
Kate Gosselin just won’t quit! After her latest attempts to get attention utterly failed (that uh, cruise that was a disaster), Kate is now trying to get the attention of our First Lady, by offering her assistance on Michelle Obama‘s anti-obesity campaign.
Kate wrote, “It’s circulating around… I’d love to help M Obama in her quest… It’s SO my passion for kids, moms & families as a whole!” I’m pretty sure Kate’s “passion” is being on television and making Kate money, but whatever works!
So, Bethenny Frankel has quit her day job in eager anticipation of getting a new one. Yep, the possibly former star of Bethenny Ever After is now the hostess with the mostess potty talk of “bethenny,” a limited release daytime talk show.
“bethenny” is airing on Fox in six select cities starting this Monday. Those lucky cities are Phoenix, LA, NYC, Philadelphia, Dallas, and Minneapolis. Oh, you lucky people who live there!
Anyway, because she’s Bethenny and she’s built her reputation on courting the scandalous and using it to her advantage, she teased everyone by not addressing the many divorce rumors circulating about her and hubby Jason Hoppy. Instead Bethenny evoked us to wait and watch well, bethenny, to clear everything up.
Oh, the repercussions of Costa Mexico! Just once I’d love to write something happy or positive about one of Bravo’s housewives franchises, but alas, I may have to wait until 2013. Here’s hoping! Oh well, onto the Real Housewives of Orange County! Before we begin, let me start with a disclaimer I seem to tout with all of these housewives posts. These women are all pretty much ridiculous. (Not you, Heather Dubrow. Want to plan a wardrobe swap soon? I’ve got some great Target pieces I think you’d really love to wear! Call me. #eventrade)
With all the fallout from the recent intervention (you know, the one that let Alexis Bellino know she’s shallow and pretentious…so nothing like her co-stars), it was rumored that the reunion may be missing a cast member. Thankfully, Alexis didn’t pull a Jacqueline Laurita, and she was there to face Andy Cohen’s music with the rest of her O.C. cohorts.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Good lord – must the Kardashians publicize everything they do? I’m surprised Kim Kardashian doesn’t tweet when she’s inserting a tampon. I can just hear it now: “Headed to the bathroom to use a lady stick, dolls! #ThatTimeOfTheMonth #PeriodFiles” Ugh.
Anyway, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star recently gave her boyfriend of like 3 months a rare $750,000 Lamborghini for his 35th birthday! Lucky man that Kanye West – well except for the dating Kim part.
TMZ is reporting that Kim bought a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 – unfortunately Kanye can’t drive the new digs around because he’s still in Ireland on the Watch the Throne tour. Kim reportedly took a video of the car to Kanye in Ireland to show him exactly what he’s missing – and she showed up in person to livestream the vid! Hopefully he won’t cancel any tour dates to rush home and drive it.
And hopefully Kim didn’t trade in the $325,000 Ferrari she reportedly got for a wedding present to purchase the new fancy wheels. We heard what happened with those Rolex watches, Kimmie!

I don’t know about you all, but I am about sick to death with these Real Housewives of New Jersey and their dramatic shenanigans. My former students acted with more maturity…and they were first graders! This time Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile didn’t limit their issues to the Garden State, but instead brought their antics to ABC’s The View. The women’s segments (that’s right, segmentS plural) aired this morning if you were lucky (?) enough to watch.
An insider tells RadarOnline.com, “The producers on The View asked Teresa if she would try to resolve her issues with Melissa, together, on the show in front of the cameras, but Teresa said she didn’t feel she should do so in front of an audience. Teresa felt that after apologizing repeatedly with no resolution, that Melissa would just attack her, so this all should be handled privately at this point.” And by privately, I am sure she means that Bravo gets dibs to that smack down.
