Jacqueline Laurita has a hard time keeping her comments to herself on Twitter and in light of that insiders are claiming Bravo has given her the boot for sitting out the reunion and spilling details about the just completed Season 4 of Real Housewives of New Jersey!
AllAboutTRH recently got the details from an insider who claims Jacqueline “violated her contract” by refusing to attend the Season 3 reunion! The source (who purports to be an insider very close to production) goes onto add, “Jacqueline won’t be returning to season 5 because she violated her contract and Bravo doesn’t trust her anymore. Her contract is now terminated.”
Apparently, Caroline Manzo is on the fence about a return to the show. “Caroline will possibly be on season 5 and she can’t stand Melissa Gorga! They rarely speak only when it’s regarding the show and have only seen each other at Albie, Greg, and Chris’s apartment a few weeks ago.” Wait — is this trouble in made for TV fauxship paradise I’m hearing of? You mean Caroline and Melissa weren’t true friends? You don’t say!
After the report came out, Caroline did manage to tweet Melissa wishing her a happy and safe trip to Miami where Melissa will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party alongside her husband, Joe Gorga!
So, who will Bravo be bringing back for Season 5? According to the AAT’s source — everyone’s favorite feuding family! “No one has been signed for Season 5 but Teresa [Giudice], Kathy [Wakile], and Melissa will be in it for sure.”
Bravo is also looking to add three new Housewives to the line up and some of the rumored additions are Teresa’s other sister-in-law (this one actually likes her, I think), Sheila Giudice and Heather Robinsonthe wife of NJ Nets player Clifford Robinson.
Heather is considered a friend of Kathy’s and the two have been tweeting back and forth a lot lately. Heather was also reportedly present at the party Melissa and Kathy attended with Sherri Shepherd where Melissa allegedly got into a verbal altercation with her stylist!
Moving right along Teresa may have received some unfortunate news regarding Joe Giudice‘s indictment, but she didn’t let it dampen her spirit! Teresa posted some family photos on her website and updated fans about Christmas. She also posted a non-Christmas themed photo of her four daughters.
“I wanted to share one more picture from our Christmas card shoot this year. I LOVE the pictures so much, but I don’t want to have Christmas scenes hanging in my house all year, so the photographer Linda Marie always makes me a non-holiday shot I can use,” Teresa said. The non-holiday photo is below!
“We had a wonderful Christmas. Everyone was at my house on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year! Over 20 people and tons of food. We did fish on Christmas Eve, and then lamb and hot peppers and pasta yesterday. The girls are off school this week — so excited to just hang out with them,” Teresa continued.
Not included in the Christmas Eve gathering? Joe and Melissa! “I did invite my brother and his family of course, my house is always open to them. xx,” Teresa shared. Present at the holiday feast instead were members of the Giudice family along with Teresa’s parents. Photos of Teresa’s family Christmas are below! The food looks amazing!
Joe and Melissa spent the holidays with Melissa’s family. Melissa’s sister posted a photo of Joe on the Marco Sisters Twitter page. The same photo was also posted on their Facebook page under the heading: “Merry Christmas!!!! We’re all together and that all that matters!!!” Joe confirmed via Twitter that he spent his holiday with Melissa’s family.

Guess what time it is!? Kardashian time! Which, in my mind also means it should be 5 o’ clock somewhere — because hearing about them leaves me exhausted and in need of libations!
Since Kim Kardashian has no job to speak of besides famewhoring she did a little sit down with Life & Style about what’s next for the falling star!
In the interview, Kim admits she is eager to put 2011 behind her and is ready to welcome the new year since you know, this one hasn’t been so great for her with the media backlash divorce and all. “It will be a new year and a new me!,” Kim enthused to the magazine. “I think 2011 was a great year of learning lessons, so I’m excited for 2012.” Oh, Kimmie learned some lessons alright — like how to isolate the public with her shenanigans!
According to Kim she is anticipating the new year because she is a changed person thanks to her two-day publicity humanitarian trip to Haiti and that hour she spent posing for cameras in an apron at the food bank on Thanksgiving. “It’s been such an awakening experience for me, and I would love to do more,” Kim shares of her Haitian trip where she apparently shopped for charity.
One thing Kim is not planning for 2012 — marriage no. 3! In fact, she’s not even ready to date! The Kourtney and Kim Take New York star reveals, “I’m not even thinking about it!” Instead, she’s working to improve herself ’cause she’s a new Kim ya’all! “I’ve been hanging out at my mom’s house. It’s been fun taking cooking lessons, chilling out and wearing sweat pants everyday,” Kim shares.
Well, Kim better get used to that chilling out in sweat pants thing because she may be doing a lot more of it in the near future. HollywoodLife is reporting that ever since that divorce the Kardashians’ wished-had-never-happened the family’s magazine sales have been declining with a capital D.
While Kimmie Kakes managed to appear on more covers than any other star in 2011 (and brought in “bestselling numbers” for her covers of Cosmopolitan and Glamour at the beginning of the year) some of her other covers for magazines like Lucky, Harpers Bazaar and Self brought in tepid numbers.
Additionally, according to reports her January 2012 Glamour cover (which featured Kim alongside Kourtney and Khloe) is “on track for poor performance.” Uh-oh. Perhaps Kim is starting to go the way of her former friend turned foe Paris Hilton and is headed for has-been country!
Moving right along, Khloe recently blogged for Celebuzz and released a plethora of photos from the annual Kadashian family Christmas party throughout the years — including one of her as a blonde!
“As I’m sure many of you know, it’s a Kardashian Jenner family tradition to host a Christmas Eve party every year at my mom’s house. The entire family comes out, along with all of our closest friends,” Khloe wrote. “We’ve been doing it for as long as I can remember, so as you can imagine, I have a lot of photos from the parties over the years.”
Sadly, Khloe wasn’t able to attend this year and instead spent the holiday with Lamar. “This year is the first time in my entire life I will miss our party and Christmas morning with my family. It’s going to be weird but I would never leave my hubby alone on Christmas!”
THOUGHTS ON KIM’S INTERVIEW – IS SHE A CHANGED WOMAN OR A WOMAN WHO IS IN DESPERATE NEED OF POSITIVE PUBLICITY? ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE DECLINING MAGAZINE SALES?

The girls of Teen Mom 2 are at it again. They make a good decision, then they make two bad decisions. They seem to be on the right track, then they derail faster than Chelsea can whine that Adam’s changed. And the guys? Oh the guys! I know boys mature slower than girls, but COME. ON. It’s time to step up to the plate, with everyone acting like adults. There are children involved, after all.
We rejoin Jenelle Evans as she moves back in with mom Barbara after filing domestic violence charges against Kieffer. She is trying to redeem her failing grades and focus on her upcoming nineteenth birthday. Her mother seems passively supportive of her daughter’s efforts, but she is concerned that Kieffer will throw her back off course. The two both agree that Jenelle spending time with son Jace is the right thing to do.

RadarOnline has just uncovered that Heather’s husband, Terry Dubrow, a renowned plastic surgeon who is no stranger to reality TV in his own right has been sued at least twice by two different patients! See, you go on a reality show and ALLLL your skeletons come dancing out of the closet!
One former patient, Leah Goodman, filed a personal injury lawsuit against Terry and the Newport Heights Medical Center where she was treated. Documents obtained pertaining to the suit, which was filed in March 2011, show Leah claiming she has suffered from “wage loss” along with “loss of earning capacity,” among other financial set-backs because of the injuries she suffered at the hands of Dr. Dubrow’s medical negligence and malpractice!
In the lawsuit filed directly against Dr. Dubrow, Leah is seeking $25,000 in damages as well as unspecified damages for the medical malpractice and general negligence she is alleging took place. Copies of the court documents are below.
Sadly this is not an isolated incident for Dr. Dubrow! Last year, former patient June Hofherr filed a suit against the doctor and the Newport Bluffs Surgery Center claiming that she suffered from complications related to a procedure Dr. Dubrow performed on her.
According to the court documents, “Defendants failed to disclose material risks of the procedure to the plaintiff and thereby failed to fully describe the procedures that were proposed and/or exceeded the scope of the disclosure and thereby failed to obtain informed consent from the plaintiff for said course of care, treatment and/or surgery. Had plaintiff been adequately informed of all the risks of the procedure, plaintiff would not have consented to said procedure.”
Mark Hofherr, who is also filing suit, claims June has been ” unable to perform the duties of a spouse and the work and services usually performed in the care, maintenance and management of the family home,” following the surgeries, adding that she “will be unable to perform such work, services and duties in the future.”
Pretty serious stuff for Dr. Dubrow who I am sure will be performing many day of beauty events on the ladies of RHOC. That’s probably the real reason Alexis Bellino isn’t a fan — she likes to pimp her plastic surgeon on the show!

Giuliana, 37, who also underwent reconstructive surgery, was back on the set at E! News on Tuesday. “Back at work today since surgery,” tweeted Giuliana. “Excited to be on set of @ENews. I’ve missed my 2nd family (co-workersnd you guys!!!) #thankful”
In a statement to E! Online, the Giuliana & Bill star wrote, “Even though I moved a tad slower than usual today, everyone welcomed me back with open arms and it was a wonderful homecoming.”
She added: “It feels great to be back at work,” she says. “I wasn’t sure whether I was going to return to E! News this week or after the new year. The last thing I wanted to do was rush my recovery. Thankfully, I’ve been feeling better every single day since surgery and this weekend my doctors gave me the green light to get back to work.”
Giuliana had her surgery on Dec. 13 after lumpectomies failed to eradicate her breast cancer. She revealed that she decided to go with the aggressive surgery in order to continue attempts to have a baby with hubby Bill Rancic.
“If I had chosen to just have another lumpectomy… Then I would have to put off having a baby for several years,” said Giuliana earlier this month, as the procedures following another lumpectomy could have left her at the age of menopause. Nice to see Giuliana is recovering well and back to work!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey have obviously not heard of Christmas vacation because the ladies past and present were up to their drama antics despite the holiday. Instead of spending time with family, Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo spent the holiday with Twitter where they seemed to get into a little Twiter for tat, although all’s well that ends well because the two seemed to make peace and spend part of their holiday together!
Jacqueline, whom I’m guessing doesn’t know how to operate a telephone or text, took to Twitter to post more personal business. Sending a heartfelt message to her cast mates and including Dina, Teresa Giudice and Danielle Staub in the missive Jacqueline beseeched her former friends to take a lesson from Jesus and get along. I guess there is more to Jesus’ birthday than Rolex watches and Louis Vuitton!
Jacs Tweeted: “Pay Attention Please @Dinamanzo @carolinemanzo @teresa_giudice @melissagorga @kathywakile @daniellestaub..” and attached the following TwitPic! The second part of the message is below.
Jacqueline also used Twitter to invite sister-in-law Dina to Caroline Manzo‘s house for the family’s annual Christmas Eve celebration. Dina seemed to turn down the invite tweeting, “@JacLaurita ooops sorry, I’m doing open heart surgery on Rudolph so he can deliver all the toys to the good little girls and boys.”
Dina then tweeted: “The most dangerous ‘Hateful’ people are the ones who has everyone convinced that their angels… eventually the ugly comes out for all the world to see.” Jacqueline responded, “What a hateful thing to tweet. Lol! I agree with u. R we going to see u at Caroline’s today? Let’s make it happen. Time 4 a change.”
When fans asked Dina to explain her tweet and pinpoint just who the “hateful” words were aimed at, Dina brushed it aside, claiming it was just a general thought. Dina also seemed to take issue with Jacqueline putting their private business on Twitter, because she replied to a fan expressing that she was tired of the BS! That Tweet is below.
Dina possibly spent time with her family, as Jacqueline tweeted a photo of herself with someone who looks an awful lot like Dina under the caption: “Where’s Santa?” although Dina was not included in any of the family photos of Christmas Eve dinner featured on Babble! Those pics are below!
Moving on, Jacqueline is now focusing on 2012 and taking to Twitter again she talked about her hopes for the new year and they seem to include forgiving certain people (ahem… Teresa). Perhaps Jacqueline isn’t paying credence to those rumors that it was Teresa who spilled the beans on her alleged former employment at Glitter Gulch!
The blog AllAboutTRH personally spoke to Jacqueline about her relationship with her former bestie turned nemesis and Jacqueline confirmed that she is working on forgiveness! “Yes I’m trying. I decided to forgive those who have wronged me,” Jacqueline explained.
“I’m letting go of any resentment and only focusing on the positive and important. Holding onto hate in your heart is bad for the soul. I’m just in a very happy place and I want to stay here.” Are we ever going to find out what happened between those two anyway!?
Speaking of Teresa she took to Twitter as well to discuss the past season of RHONJ and admitted it was a difficult season filled with fake drama! “And I think you can tell the fake drama people bring to filming wears him down. We’re not like that. We’re just real and happy and relaxed..,” Teresa Tweeted. Adding, “This was *not* a fun season for any of us. Tore my family apart and made my former friends crazy. Very sad. Very glad it’s over…” Well that’s one thing I agree with Teresa on – I’m glad this season is over too. Now if we could just get Season 4 over with already!
