Reality Tea

We said a while back that you couldn’t make these things up, and folks you simply can’t when it comes to the Bravo housewives. Just a week after showing off her lavish unaffordable mansion in InTouch Weekly, Teresa Giudice’s luxurious home items have now been officially listed on an auction website to be auctioned off on August 22nd.

The website, A.J.Willner Auctions, specializes in auctioning off home items of the rich and morally bankrupt aka Teresa and hubby Joe Giudice. The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, who can been seen bragging about their lavish lifestyle on the show, filed bankruptcy to the tune of $11 mil in debt back in October 2009.

And not only does the site list Teresa home address, and a time for the auction, 12:00pm for those interested in stopping by, it also posts the photos of items set for auction from Teresa’s home. Oddly enough, a lot of the items pictured, including Teresa’s stainless steel gas range, flat screen TV, and crest leather & fabric sofas, were all featured in her InTouch magazine home spread.

Other items of Teresa’s that are being auctioned off?

  • Schaefer & Sons Grand Piano
  • Wolf 48″ Stainless Steel Gas Range
  • 1080 Pure 42″ LCD Television
  • Chippendale Style Arm Chair & Pair of Oversized Candle Sticks
  • Round Pine Kitchen Table & 8 Upholstered Tudor Style Chairs
  • Panasonic Viera Oversized LCD Television
  • Dark Finish King Size Bedroom Set
  • Love Seat, Upholstered Arm Chairs & Area Rug
  • Connelly Antique Style Pool Table
  • Faux Marble Chess Set

Yes, even the bed Teresa sleeps on will be auctioned off. Not sure if it gets any more humiliating than that. Unfortunately for the Giudices, their problems have only just began.

As we reported last week, Teresa and Joe are now being accused of perjury by their bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok, whose responsibility is to round up the Giudices’ assets and distribute the proceeds to creditors.

John alleges in court documents dated June 30 that the couple failed to list profits from several business, including Teresa’s clothing line TG Fabulicious LLC, a pizza parlor (which was shown in the most recent episode of Real Housewives) and her cookbook, Skinny Italian, which he claims was written prior to the bankruptcy filing.

The Wall Street Journal also reveals the Giudices are accused of undervaluing some of their luxury items in their bankruptcy filing, including a pool table ($1,000), wedding bands ($400) and living room furniture ($2,000). Like anyone would believe their wedding bands cost $400.

Jim Kridel, an attorney for the Giudices, however tells PEOPLE his clients are innocent of any wrong doing and he plans to object to the filing in court, saying they did not hide sources of income.

“The contract for Teresa’s book was signed after the bankruptcy petition was filed, and all money was received post petition,” he says, adding that the Giudices are legally allowed to freely spend money earned after filing bankruptcy. “If she knew the recipes, it doesn’t take four years to write a cook book,” he says. “It’s not a Mary Higgins Clark novel.”

As for the pizzeria, Kridel claims it is owned by Joe’s father, and therefore should have never been considered an asset at the time of the filing. What’s interesting is that Teresa said during last episode of the NJ Housewives that Joe owned the pizza parlour.

And when it comes to the book fiasco, Teresa is likely lying about that as well, because Teresa wrote in one of her Bravo blogs back in June that her book, Skinny Italian, went to press before Bethenny Frankel’s book, The Skinnygirl Dish, came out. This was Teresa’s attempts at fending off rumors that she copied Bethenny’s book.

So let’s dig a little more into this. Bethenny’s book came out December, 29, 2009 according to Amazon. Teresa filed for Bankruptcy on October 29, 2009. So according to Teresa, she signed the contract for her book, finished writing the book, and was able to get it to press, all within a 2 month span?! Well, we call BS and say it’s highly impossible unlikely. Plus one also has to wonder if Teresa is being made fully aware of her financial troubles. Showing off her home in a national magazine two weeks after their trustee filed documents to auction off her home items just seems surreal and downright moronic, but then again…

UPDATE - It seems the items listed on the auction website are only the featured items of the auction. A whole lot more of Teresa’s home items will also be auctioned off including all of the beds of her kids, all of the TVs in the kids’ bedrooms, toys, games, books, and even some of her baby’s items including the crib and rocker. Even her refrigerators and jewelry will be auctioned off.

Other items include the kids’ bikes, Gia’s ATV that was given to her on the show for her birthday, and also a boat owned by the Giudices. Poor kids. You can see the full list of auction items by clicking here. Thanks to our reader Anita Vacation for the link.

UPDATE #2 – More photos of Teresa’s home items to be auctioned off have been added.

While the headline grabbing Real Housewives of DC doesn’t debut for 2 more weeks on the Bravo network, the show’s stars have already began their press interviews.

Two of the show’s cast members, Mary Schmidt Amons and Stacie Turner, recently did a phone conference interview and well, let’s just say they had some interesting things to say.

The HollywoodLife points out that both of the DC ladies had nothing but praises for Bethenny Frankel, who is by far the most successful and popular Bravo housewife.

“I have watched the New York and Atlanta Housewives,” said Stacie (pictured right), who owns her own real estate agency and is also married to a man named Jason. She added, “I relate to Bethenny the most because she’s an entrepreneur juggling a bunch of things like being a mom” and owning a business.”

Stacie’s cast-mate Mary also states she can relate to Bethenny the most. “It’s really hard to associate with the other casts,” Mary explains. But “the person I most identify with is the person who has been a very positive influence … [is] Bethenny!” She added, “I enjoyed watching her on this season [of the NY Housewives]. It’s been interesting to see how motherhood and marriage has changed her!”

The Washington Post also adds that during the conference call interview, Mary wanted to make certain that the show “is not all about the Salahis.

“We spent five months together, and we spent a lot of time sharing our stories, and I think that the American public is going to be really interested and inspired by our stories,” she said, with the Post adding that she didn’t sound like someone too happy to be upstaged by Michaele Salahi.

And when it comes to the impact the party crashing incident had on the cast, Stacie stated: “It was so unbelievable because they’d been nothing but nice and normal around us,” adding, “things did change a little bit after that point… I was just shocked that anybody would have the gall to crash a party like that.”

The Real Housewives of D.C. is set to premiere August 5th on Bravo.

It seems Real Housewives of Orange County star Gretchen Rossi is keeping her chin up after months of not so great press, you know following the makeup fiasco, the song fiasco, and the whole bench warrant & having to pay her alleged stalker ex $20,000 fiasco.

Well it seems Gretchen is now set to launch another new random business venture her handbag collection at the end of this month. According to Gretchen’s website, the Gretchen Christine Collection (Christine is her middle name) will include a collection of designer handbags, shoes, fashion and accessories available in limited quantities at select retailers.

Her blog also announces Gretchen will debut her new collection July 30th on Shop NBC @6pm. There will be “seven styles to choose from all at affordable prices-ranging from $129 to just under $300 dollars! Happy Shopping!” says Gretchen on her blog.

Kristin Cavallari, star of the Hills, also wore one of Gretchen’s handbags to the Hill’s finale party.

Bachelor Jake

Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is now weighing in on those is pesky gay rumors swirling around Jake Pavelka.

Ali had the following to say during her appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday: “Just because he wears really nice turtleneck sweaters does not mean he’s gay!” Jake has been the subject of gay rumors since his nasty split with Vienna Girardi last month, after Vienna, 24, told Star magazine he refused to have sex with her for months.

BuzzSugar also did an all new interview with Ali during which she discusses being dumped by Frank Neuschafer, what really happens on those overnight dates, and briefly touches on her final decision.

Excerpts from Ali’s interview is below -

BuzzSugar: Was it difficult to watch this week’s episode with Frank again?
Ali Fedotowsky: I really did get emotional. I’ve been watching the shows and sort of reliving them, so to see myself that down is hard. Watching yourself cry is difficult! It just reaffirmed that I’m so much better off for him leaving. This whole time, I had always said to my producers that I knew Frank would hurt me at same point. He really made me feel insecure throughout the thing, and I said to him, ‘My relationship with you scares me.’ I’m positive that I would not have ended up with Frank in the end, because I wouldn’t have been able to commit to someone who scared me that much.

Buzz: Last night we saw the overnight dates — are they as awkward as they look?
AF: So awkward! I shouldn’t even say awkward, but you don’t know what people are expecting. Because I’m offering a guy an overnight date card, that doesn’t mean we’re going to go in the room and take all of our clothes off and get into bed! Yes, I’m giving him an overnight card, but I am not the type of girl to be with one guy, and then a minute later be with another guy. I would never do that. Ever. It’s not what people think it is. I don’t know that I’m even necessarily ready to sleep next to a guy one night and then another guy the next night.

Buzz: Well, we know Frank is out, but there are conflicting rumors saying that you’re single or that you’re engaged and already planning your wedding! Has it been difficult to keep the real outcome a secret?
AF: I’m good at keeping secrets, so it’s been OK. But it is really hard in the sense that I don’t want to keep in the secret! I just want to be like, ‘You’re wrong, you’re wrong, you’re kind of right but wrong.’ I just want everything out there, so I can talk about it and live my life whether I’m a single woman or whether I’m happily engaged.

Buzz: So, I take it you’re happy with your decision?
AF: I’m so happy with my decision. I wouldn’t change anything!

Eric RobertsRachel Uchitel

RadarOnline is reporting today that actor Eric Roberts has now joined the season 4 cast of Celebrity Rehab.

VH1 officially announced the cast earlier this week, which included “celebrities” such as Janice Dickinson, Jason Wahler, and Jeremy London. “Eric Roberts is my roommate and is simply amazing,” London told Radar. “He’s an incredible person.”

Eric’s addition to the show is a bit of a surprise considering he has had a pretty successful career as an actor having starred in films such as The Dark Knight and Fight Club.  Eric, 54, is the brother of popular actress Julia Roberts, and father of budding actress Emma Roberts.

In other “celebrity” news, TMZ also reported this week that Donald Trump is no longer interested in having Rachel Uchitel on the Celebrity Apprentice.  For those not familiar with Rachel, she is the mistress extraordinaire who has bedded the likes of Tiger Woods and actor David Boreanaz.

Donald had asked Rachel to be on the next season of Celebrity Apprentice and she had accepted, however it seems the Donald was none too pleased with Rachel’s decision to do Celebrity Rehab.

“It’s a terrible decision.  We have zero interest in her now,” said Donald to TMZ before adding that “‘Celebrity Apprentice‘ is a huge show and ‘Celebrity Rehab’ is not.  I have 10 people who want to be on the show for every slot that’s available.  I’m moving on.”

Danielle Staub Real Housewives of New Jersey

The feud between former BFFs Danielle Staub and Kim Granatell continues to get nasty.

Kim G. is now claiming the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has slept with thousands of men.

When asked about the number of men porn star Danielle had slept with, Kim G. had the following to say in her video interview with Celebrity Magnet via RadarOnline, “I’ve lost track. Maybe thousands, who knows? She’s in the business!”

“She spread her legs, look at her on the pole the last time we were at that place where we were on the pole – I looked like an idiot,” she added. And yes Kim, you did look an idiot. A major idiot.

And when it comes to Danielle’s rumored lesbian relationship with singer-songrwiter Lori Michaels, Kim G. has her own theory. “The reason why she’s with a woman now too is because you know why, guys don’t want to f*** her,” the mother-of-three sniped.

“I don’t think they want her,” she claimed, going on to say that she thinks Lori was pursued by Danielle. “I think she’s going after her, maybe they feed off each other because one wants one for one reason and one wants it for another… Then she’ll be on her own,” predicted Kim G.

What’s sad is the claim of Danielle sleeping with thousands of men isn’t a far stretch as Danielle has admitted her past as an escort prostitution whore.

Tonight’s episode of Bethenny’s Getting Married is titled “Baby Won’t Wait” referencing Bethenny Frankel’s early delivery.

Bethenny delivered her baby girl Bryn Hoppy back in May. Bryn came 5 weeks early for the first time mom. Above is a new photo of baby Bryn with Bethenny and dad Jason Hoppy.

Coming up tonight, 5 weeks before the due date and fresh off their honeymoon, the newlyweds realize that the time has come… Bethenny is going into labor! Bethenny and Jason frantically try to rearrange their busy schedules (well, Bethenny at least), get to the hospital and stay calm through the hours and hours of labor as they welcome baby Bryn into the world. As usual, the couple keeps things amusing, even through the labor pains! A preview clip is below.

In other Bethenny news, fresh off the feud with fellow reality star Omarosa, could a new feud be brewing up for Bethenny? That answer is yes according to E! News. Bethenny, during an interview with E!, had some rather harsh words for Bristol Palin and her rumored reality show with baby daddy Levi Johnston.

“If it was her mom getting married or remarried it would be interesting,” said Bethenny. “If it was Sarah was raising the baby, maybe. But what’s the deal with the two of them?”

“I don’t know what they are and I don’t even know who they are,” she added. “I don’t get it. And it would be too awkward to watch them in something L.A. because they don’t belong there.” Ouch, neither Bristol nor her people have yet to respond to Bethenny’s mean unprovoked comments.

Bethenny, who has stated on numerous occasions that she would rather not return to the Real Housewives of NYC, is however open to doing a second season of BGM, perhaps this time titled Bethenny Going For Baby #2? “I can’t have that many more because I’m not a spring chicken,” said the 39-year-old. “But my husband really wants to have another one. I think maybe subconsciously because his brother passed away and he’s now an only child is part of the reason he’s really desperate to have another.”

She also adds that her success with her diet books, drinks, shows etc is still somewhat of a surprise to her. “I thought I was destined for something special, but I certainly didn’t know it could be like this,” she said. “It’s very surreal.”

Patti Stanger, Bravo’s resident crude loud mouth Millionaire Matchmaker is back at it and this time around, no celebrity is safe!

The 49-year-old matchmaker, who finally got engaged last year to beau Andy Friedman after 5 long years of dating, sat down for a video interview with Popeater during which she discussed filming the 3rd season of her hit show in NYC, her wedding plans and sounds off on some headline making celebrities.

When asked what was one of the biggest challenges she faced since moving her show from Los Angeles to New York, Patti doesn’t mince her words, answering: “Finding hot girls in New York city.”

On how regular women can go about snagging their millionaires – “Well if you want to get a millionaire, you got to hit a steak house… Go where the men are. If they are playing golf, go there. If they are playing tennis, go there.

On her upcoming wedding plans – “No we haven’t planned one yet, Bravo’s kept me on a tight leash. She later added that “there is no rush,” and that she has no plans to have any children. She is however open to “adopting someday.”

Patti also dishes up some love advice for some celebrities -

On Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston – “That’s the ridiculous thing, he has no interest in her. He had a baby out of wedlock, he’s selling her down the river and she’s selling herself down the river. This is a shotgun wedding at most and they’re never getting married.

On Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher – “I love this couple. I knew the minute like she made a decision to get married like after twenty one, that girl would find true love. And she found an athlete, and he’s very wealthy in Canada besides playing hockey. She’s marrying into a good family. I’m happy for her! A baby in 2 years.”

On Jessica Simpson and new ex-NFL player beau Eric Johnson – “Umm he has no money, no job. Seriously what are we thinking here? He basically is 30-years-old, making her do cupping, trying herbs. This is a creepy deepy guy.”

When asked which other celebs she would like to sound off on, Patti revealed she would like to help Kate Hudson and Jessica Simpson find love, then going on to refer to them as the “serial daters” and “the crazy pants.” Patti would also like to put Tiger Woods and Jesse James in another group to help them. Helping Mel Gibson is also not off limits, that is if he decides to become a jew according to Patti.

Good to see Patti is still the same ol Patti. The 3rd season of the Millionaire Matchmaker continues to film in NYC. Bravo has yet to announce the premiere date.
