Danielle Staub

Ever since Life&Style broke the news that Bravo fired Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the question has remained is she fired or isn’t she?

Well the NYDailyNews is now confirming today that Danielle was indeed fired by Bravo, but they put it in nicer terms, stating that Bravo simply did not ask her to return.

An insider confirms to the site that Bravo has began working on the 3rd season of the hit show, and has asked Danielle’s co-stars Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita to return.

It all went down a week after the reunion show taping. Bravo reportedly sent Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline letters asking them to return for a third season. The insider adds that Danielle did not receive a letter and, was not even aware that her co-stars had.

A source also adds that Danielle was unaware she was off the show until she read it online on Monday. As for Danielle’s cryptic non-denial message on Monday, the source says she’s not that upset because she might be getting her own solo reality show. She is said to be “working with production companies who are really interested and have talked to Bravo.”

And as for the gruesome twosome aka the two Kims, they weren’t asked back as well. The source stays this season was a bit of an audition for Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, adding that they might be asked to make guest appearances next season.

The NYDailyNews doesn’t touch on whether or not Dina Manzo was asked back. Dina left during this season because she no longer wanted to film with Danielle. Dina however posted an interesting tweet this week regarding the Danielle story – “yes, I’ve heard the news, don’t know if it’s true. Rumor has it I may not be invited if I don’t put my daughter back on air. Can u believe?”

Perhaps someone should inform Dina the show is about the women and their families. Without a husband or daughter on the show, she really isn’t bringing much to the table.

Heidi Montag and Frank Ryan

Plastic Surgeon Dr. Frank Ryan, who became well known for performing  Heidi Montag’s 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, has died in car accident on Monday in Los Angeles.

According to TMZ, Ryan’s Jeep steered off the Pacific Coast Highway and landed on the rocks below.  He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Even more sad, PEOPLE magazine is reporting today that Ryan, 50, was texting right before crash. His ex-girlfriend, Charmaine Blake, tells PEOPLE he was sending a Twitter message about his border collie right before the fatal car accident.

“He lived up in Malibu on a tiny street and he was texting while driving and he accidentally went over the cliff,”  says Charmaine, also confirming to PEOPLE that investigators told Ryan’s family his Tweeting caused the accident.

As for Heidi, the Hills star had the following to say upon hearing the news of Ryan’s passing.  “I am devastated to hear the news of Dr. Frank Ryan’s death,” she wrote on her Twitter. “He was the most amazing person I have ever known. He was an angel and changed my life and the lives of everyone he met. He was the most brilliant talented surgeon who will ever exist. Dr. Frank Ryan changed the world.”

RIP to Dr. Ryan, and let’s keep our fingers crossed that Speidi won’t exploit this to get publicity for themselves.

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are still surprisingly married after tying the knot back in September following only a few weeks of dating.

And though pregnancy rumors have plagued Khloe, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she states she isn’t trying to get pregnant, while not doing anything to prevent a pregnancy.

“It’s in God’s hands, and let it happen when it happens,” said Khloe to PEOPLE.  “I’m 26. It should happen naturally. I don’t want to force it. I would love to have a baby, and if I get pregnant, I get pregnant.” She adds with a laugh: “I don’t think, like … my biological clock is ticking!”

And in other Khlamar news, RadarOnline is reporting the married couple got into a big fight recently after Lamar’s Team USA basketball win over France Sunday night.

According to Radar, Lamar was giving attention to other women while out celebrating which made Khloe very upset, causing her to leave the celebration solo.

“Women kept stopping by the table to say hi to the guys,” an eyewitness told Radar.  “After only 10 minutes, Khloe’s jealousy got the best of her and she stormed out.”

The eyewitness adds, “I overheard Khloe cursing Lamar out for being ‘too friendly… But Lamar didn’t really seem bothered when she left.”

The new season of KUWTK premieres August 22.

The Hills are alive with the Giudice indeed. Airing last night was Episode 15 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which might or might not have been one of the more boring episodes this season.

What did we learn last night? Well for one, ‘Ethninticity’ is a word according to Danielle Staub, Caroline Manzo finds it cute and adorable when Joe Giudice decides to throw a temper tantrum and go on a cursing rampage around kids, and Jacqueline Laurita really really cares about “old people.”

The episode starts out with the families as they get ready to dock in Naples. We immediately see a very cranky Joe and Teresa tries to convince us the source of this is that Joe doesn’t like being away from his business for a week. They all get on the bus, and Caroline tells us she’s annoyed by the Giudice children. Teresa however makes it clear she is not responsible for Caroline’s funky mood.

Danielle and her eyebrows attempt a heart to heart with her daughters, as she wants to discuss her birth mother. But before getting to the main topic, Danielle takes us down a trip on victims’ memory lane, rehashing Kim G’s betrayal and Teresa’s big mouth. And at the end of this convo, I’m still uncertain what the point of Danielle’s sit down with her daughters was. This just seems like an opportunity for Danielle to share her woe-is-me-Kim G-betrayed-me sob story. We do find out Danielle’s mother had her at age 15, but something tells me her daughters already knew that.

The families go out to dinner and we see the men eating “like they were going to jail.” Joe mentions they might have to hike it when visiting his family the next day. Jacqueline is immediately concerned as she realizes babies and old people do not know how to hike. Teresa however assures us in her interview that all will be well as Italy also has babies and old people, who hike everyday.

Danielle‘s favorite ex-con Danny decides to pay her a visit and informs her the others are gone to Italy. Danielle, who has had to suffer the last couple of weeks/months without a panini, is happy as she can now drive over to the market in Franklin Lakes without having to fear for her life. Danny randomly and oddly brings up Ashley, stating he has met some of her friends who have offered to help him. Help with what exactly? We’re not told. Danielle immediately goes on an Ashley bashing rampage. “She doesn’t have friends, she’s got terroristic tendencies,” said former prostitution whore/kidnapper Danielle.

Danny decides he needs to keep tabs on the then teenage Ashley, and Danielle encourages this because Ashley’s “got a special kind of crazy,” says the nutty pot.

We are now back in Italy and as the families get ready to leave for Joe’s hometown, the cursing resumes as the cranky and bankrupt Joe complains about the prices of things. Perhaps someone should inform Joe luxurious trips to Italy don’t come cheap. But then again Joe isn’t quite used to taking responsibility for his debts.

And at this point, I wonder just how much Bravo is shelling out for this fancy trip. As I said earlier, Bravo typically foots the bill for the ladies from the Housewives franchise to take a trip each season. My guess is Bravo was not willing to cover the expenses for the kids, grand parents and other family members involved in this trip, which would explain Joe’s outbursts. Which would then also mean the bankrupt and suppose to be broke Giudices continued to live beyond their means by bringing their whole family to Italy. What I wouldn’t do to know the amount of debt the Giudices have racked up since filing for bankruptcy back in October.

Teresa Giudice

Not that you needed any more reasons for your disgust dislike of Teresa Giudice, but we’re about to give you 60,000 more.

The NYPost is reporting today that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star celebrated being debt free by going on a $60,000 spending spree, after filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt back in October, 2009.

The shocker hasn’t even come yet. According to the Post, Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, just days after filing bankruptcy. Just days folks…. Unbelievable.

This little tidbit came out yesterday as the morons Giudices had their attorney James Kridel file a court document with receipts that detailed the irresponsible spending, as a way to show the court that some of their auction items were purchased after their filing. The Post reports even Kridel seemed at a loss for words when trying to explain the asinine spending to Judge Morris Stern, saying he knew the documents presented “a dilemma” and that the Judge might view it as “conspicuous consumption.” Ya think?

“These were not Ikea-purchased furniture items,” Judge Stern said. “These were from high-end design stores.”

As we reported yesterday, the judge refused to stop the public auction of the Giudices home items, but postponed it to Oct. 3. Bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, who has accused the Giudices of concealing assets, was also present during the hearing and stated that right before their bankruptcy filing, the Giudices purchased $21,000 worth of furniture and paid off a total of $11,000 of that amount just two days before filing.

And there’s more folks! While Teresa refused to comment on her irresponsible wasteful disgusting spending spree, hubby Joe, who is said to have been sweating profusely, got a little testy at the reporters. “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!” stated an angry Joe outside of the courtroom.

And somewhere in America, an average couple is holding multiple jobs to keep a roof over their heads, feed their kids, and pay off their debt, while the Giudices get to remain debt free and live in their $5 mil mansion! Surely this has to be criminal…

UPDATE: Teresa’s lawyer James Kridel tries to explain the unbelievable spending spree she went on just days after filing bankruptcy.“That was the money she earned as an advance for her book Skinny Italian,” her attorney tells PEOPLE. “Since she earned it after the filing, she was absolutely free to spend it.”

It doesn’t end there. Kridel then tries to explain why Teresa needed to buy $60,000 worth of furniture while also acknowledging just how incredibly awful and disgusting this makes his client look. “She needed to re-buy furniture because she didn’t have any furniture in the house,” says Kridel. “It’s a big house and she wanted furniture consistent with her style on the show. There is nothing wrong with doing that, except that it doesn’t look good for her to be doing it.” No Kridel, it doesn’t, not by a long shot.

Must say it’s quite interesting that Teresa managed to receive her book advance just a few days after filing bankruptcy.

Kim Zolciak Mom

Things continue to get serious between Kim Zolciak and her new non-married NFL boyfriend Kroy Biermann.

InTouch magazine is reporting the Real Housewives of Atlanta star paid her non-married beau a visit on Monday at his Atlanta Falcons NFL training camp.

Kim, 32, brought along her mom Karen (the woman responsible for the wig legend), and her two daughters. Above is a picture of Kim and her mother. “It was a closed practice and she sat in the family section while she cheered him on. She had so much fun, and she’s very supportive of him,” says Kim a source to InTouch.

And did we mention Kroy, 24, is not married?


DeShawn Snow Mansion

In other Atlanta news, former star of the show DeShawn Snow has now put her Atlanta mansion up for sale. Yes this is the same mansion that DeShawn and husband Eric Snow were shown moving into during the first season of the show.

Things have since taken a bad turn for DeShawn as Eric got a woman pregnant, filed for divorce back in May, and has since had a baby girl with his mistress Marisela Alvarado.

Homesoftherich reports “the 15,000 square foot mansion is located in Alpharetta, GA and boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 full and 6 half bathrooms, floating staircase, 2-story great room, formal dining room, 2-story family room, gourmet kitchen with breakfast room, 6-car garage, paneled gentlemen’s study, separate ladies office, home theater, wine cellar, billiards room, card room, recreational room with large custom bar, hair salon, steam shower, dry sauna, basketball court, swimming pool with spa, and a gazebo with fireplace.”

The asking price? A mere $4,998,000.

Kara DioGuardiShania Twain

While Kara DioGuardi has remained mum since news of her firing from American Idol made headlines weeks ago, her dad is now speaking out on her behalf and what he had to say is a bit shocking.

Kara’s dad, Republican senate candidate Joe DioGuardi, told Capital Tonight that Kara found out about her firing the same way the public did – from reading about it.

“She read it the way you did and I did,” said Joe. “Would you believe she did not hear — and still has not heard — anything?”

Joe added, “Her disappointment is that that’s the way she’s being treated and she feels that’s not proper. I think they’re trying to create a lot of buzz… they’re trying to reformat the thing.”

Though Fox has yet to publicly confirm the firing, TMZ and multiple reputable media outlets broke the news on July 30. Yikes.

In other Idol news, TMZ also reported AI was negotiating a deal with Jennifer Lopez and Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler to be the replacement judges. News however broke a week ago that negotiations with Jlo fell through due to her many diva demands.

However, TMZ is reporting AI is still in talks with Jlo, but they do have a back up plan in case the talks fall through. The back up plan? None other than Shania Twain. TMZ refers to the country star as “plan B.”

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

As the end of the season nears, a new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey titled ‘Hills Are Alive With Giudice’ airs tonight.

As the housewives continue their overseas vacation, some of the ladies have trouble hiding their foul moods. Will Teresa’s rambunctious young ones ruin the trip for the other families or will Teresa be able to control the girls? Meanwhile, back in Franklin Lakes Danielle enjoys the freedom of knowing the other women are out of the country. Heading out to lunch with Danny, Danielle opens up about her fears of being ambushed by the other housewives. Will Danielle have to run for cover once the ladies return or will there ever be Housewife a truce? Find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On to the big news of the day. The Star-Ledger is reporting that Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe Giudice have been able to get a postponement on their scheduled Aug 22 auction.

The auction for the couple, pictured above during their court appearance this morning, has now been set for October 3. According to the Ledger, the Giudices appeared in Newark this morning before U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Morris, who stated he would allow the postponement of the auction to allow for a review of which items can be sold. The judge however made it clear this is not to cancel the auction.

The Star-Ledger reports the Giudices objected to the sales of a number of items in the auction, including children’s toys, beds and antique accessories. They reportedly feared that some used personal property would fetch far less than it would cost to replace it.

The Judge agreed that their children’s items should be removed from the auction list, and has appointed a court-appointed trustee and auction agent to meet with the Giudices and go through every item to decide what items will be put up for sale and which will remain exempt.

Guess those of us interested in that nice gas range will have to wait a few more weeks.
