Likely In – Not confirmed but likely in are retired NFL player Kurt Warner, BacheloretteAli Fedotowsky and her fiancé, Roberto Martinez, who according to E! Online and OK magazine, have yet to finalize their deal. Also heavily rumored to be in? Soccer player Landon Donovan and Michael Bolton.
Long Shots – There are also rumblings that the show wantsJon Gosselin, you know, following the media blitz his ex-wife Kate Gosselin brought to the show last season. Bravo Housewife Teresa Giudicealso seems to be a long shot, as there have been no reports about her joining the show since her tweets about doing the show in late July. Though we do think adding a Bravo housewife to the show would be genius, maybe just not Teresa.
Other long shots include David Hasselhoff, Lindsay Lohan, and Jennifer Love Hewitt.
TELL US – WHICH OF THESE STARS DO YOU WANT TO SEE ON DWTS? WHICH BRAVO HOUSEWIFE WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE ON THE SHOW?
UPDATE - UsWeekly is now reporting that David Hasselhoff has signed on for the 11th season of ABC’s Dancing With the Stars. The mag also states Bachelorette Ali and her fiance Roberto are likely out.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, the weatherman had some choice words for crazy pants Elizabeth Kitt, who spit on her hands, rinsed them off in the pool and sniped, “I just realized how gross this is” after kissing Jonathan in the kissing competition on Monday night’s episode.
“I didn’t consider her a contestant,” said the Weatherman, 30, in a post-show interview. “I consider contestants to be of a human form, not of a demonic form. Everybody else was cool. If I don’t have respect for somebody, they can say whatever they want about me and it doesn’t phase me.”
As for why he was voted off the show, the Weatherman is still not sure, adding that “there were definitely girls that would have benefited and given themselves more longevity in the game by keeping me around.”
In other news, after sharing what seemed like a romantic connection with Wes Hayden on the Bachelor Pad, Gia Allemand is now opening up about the ABC resident bad boy.
Gia, 26, tells UsWeekly she feels she got sent home because she backed out of the very gross kissing contest. Gia felt uncomfortable with the competition because she had a boyfriend, Hockey player Chris Campoli, back home.
“I took away a shot at winning the rose — that was huge,” said Gia. “But I had to do what was right for my boyfriend back home and what was right in my mind. Kissing people down the line was not right for me to do.”
And what about her close relationship with Wes on the show? “I feel bad that I got close to another guy on the show — even though I didn’t cheat,” said Gia. “My boyfriend handled everything with such class.”
So is she still with her boyfriend? Gia declined to answer stating the answer to that question will come out after the finale. However RadarOnline reported weeks ago that Gia and Chris are no longer together. According to Radar, the two split up shortly after Gia came back from doing the show.
So is a single Gia dating Wes? Unlikely as she tells UsWeekly she has not seen Wes, 33, since she got sent home. “We’re going to see each other at the finale,” she said. “That’s a little nerve-wracking.”
The finale episode brilliantly titled ‘The Heads of the Family Will Roll‘ brought us the same thing we have seen all season. The others vs Danielle Staub. The others claiming they are tired of talking about Danielle, only to gather together and talk about her. The others claiming they want nothing to do with Danielle, only to arrange a sit down with her.
And judging from the previews of the reunion show, we have more others vs Danielle coming our way! Yaay us! Because seeing any of the others decide to disagree with each other, or argue with each other is simply too much to ask for. Though it would be nice to see Caroline call out Teresa on her irresponsible spending habits and $11 mil debt, however, these are moments we can only dream of.
Well folks, last night was no different in this long drawn out season. After stating all season that she wanted nothing to do with Danielle, Caroline decides to call a face to face meeting with Dirty D, bringing us the highlight of the finale.
The episode starts out with the Giudices cooking on their soon to be auctioned off fancy gas range which I might or might not be seriously considering bidding on. They are having a dinner party for all the families sans Danielle of course. A few minutes into dinner, Danielle is brought up as they discuss the charges against Ashley. The Manzos and Lauritas seem upset that Danielle is refusing to drop the charges against Ashley. And I have to ask myself, why should she?
Caroline mentions she wants Danielle to go away, and I once again ask myself – wasn’t Dina the one who asked to meet up with Danielle? Wasn’t Danielle minding her business when Teresa decided to confront her at the country club? Wasn’t Danielle walking away when Ashley pulled out her extensions?
Is Danielle a drama queen nutjob trouble maker? Absolutely! But the others keep contradicting themselves in their actions towards her.
We see Danielle at home as she receives a text from Caroline to meet up. Danielle immediately wants to know how the f*ck Caroline got her number, you know considering she went through all the trouble of getting a new number and going into the witness protection program to get away from her big bad scary co-stars. Danielle, who could have easily said no to the meeting, agrees to meet up with Caroline.
We get yet another scene with the good cop/bad cop Jacqueline and Chris as they attempt to talk some sense into Ashley, and this talk pretty much goes the same way all the others have this season, so moving right along.
Honorable sixth housewife Danny pays Danielle a visit, during which Danielle informs him of her plans to meet up with Caroline. In her interview, Danielle informs us Caroline formed an opinion on her without ever having a conversation with her. Based on this logic, we must all immediately delete the horrific sex tape images from our brains, and wait until our individual sit-downs with Danielle, before we can refer to her as a trashy skank.
Danielle then gives us a great quote, ” Caroline, you are not Carmelo. You are not a Soprano. So stop sending out your little brilliant ones to make it look like you’re not doing anything while you’re sitting there on your proverbial throne judging. Get a life.” I’m guessing ‘proverbial’ must have been Danielle’s word of the month on her spelling calendar or something. And no, Danielle is not referring to NBA player Carmelo Anthony, she means Carmela from the Sopranos of course.
We see Caroline as she prepares to meet with Danielle, during which her daughter Lauren makes perfect sense when she asks her mommy why she wants to meet up with the crazy lady. On the other side of town, Danielle is also getting ready, but this time around, she doesn’t involve her kids, instead calling up her “Energist” as they proceed to do some odd breathing exercises.
Energist – “There you go, did you feel that?”
Danielle – “Oh yeah, I always feel it when you start on me.”
Too easy, so I will move along. The ladies drive to meet with one another and Danielle lets us know she has no reason to stress because “there’s guys here with guns.” As Danielle enters the the private room to meet with an already seated Caroline, Bravo decides to tease us a little bit longer by cutting away from the scene. What the hay! I had to sit through 9 non-eventful episodes this season to get to the dramatic Country club episode, so what’s a few more minutes of waiting.
The NYDailyNews is reporting today that Bravo has asked back all of the ladies of last season with the exception of one. Who wasn’t asked back? Bethenny Frankel, who has been very vocal about not wanting to return to the show.
It seems Bravo is pleased and content with the success of Bethenny’s spin off show – Bethenny Getting Married, as she is currently filming a second season.
Now on to the shocker, which is the return of Kelly Bensimon, who famously had a mental breakdown last season, and has bashed the network for false editing and forcing her to go on the St. John trip. Even Bravo’s VP of programming, Andy Cohen, recently referred to Kelly’s breakdown as “deeply disturbing” in an interview with Harper’s Bazaar magazine. But oh well, who cares! Evidently, crazy sells!
Houston, we have a situation. According to the Hollywood Reporter, The Situationis set to earn an astonishing $5 million this year!
Just how? Well the site reports the breakout star of Jersey Shoreis raking in $60, 000 per episode on the MTV hit show, in addition to the $1,000,000 he is expected to earn in appearance fees.
But that’s not all, The Situation also signed a $400,000 deal to help promote a new line of protein vodka drink called Devotion, and yes you read that right, a protein vodka drink. He is also developing several products including an ab workout video and a line of chewable supplements.
But wait, there’s more! He also released a rap song on iTunes and has signed endorsement deals with Vitamin Water, Reebok and a clothing company.
So there you have it folks. Who knew fist pumping could be so lucrative.
In other Shore news, RadarOnline reported yesterday that Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola walked out on the show (season 3 is currently filming) late last week.
According to Radar, Sammi got into a rage after watching the season 2 episodes that showed her boyfriend and co-star Ronnie Magro cheating on her, and then coming back to the Shore house to sleep with her.
“Sammi was angry and hurt by everyone,” a source tells Radar. “She couldn’t believe Ronnie did this and the girls hadn’t really told her… She just couldn’t stay living with the person who did this to her, so she moved out.”
The source adds that Sammi “had to find out in front of everyone that her boyfriend was lying to her and treating her like hell.” Radar reports the entire cast sat together last week to watch all the episodes of season 2.
Ok magazine is also reporting today that Sammi has since returned to the Jersey Shore house.
According to TMZ, professional mistress and Celebrity Rehab star Rachel confided in a close friend yesterday, stating she would “give up everything” to be back with Tiger, whom she had an affair with.
The friend tells TMZ Rachel said, “I feel horrible for him. He loved her. But he was in love with me. I hope he remembers that was real, and reaches out to me.” Wonder if Rachel would be willing to give up the $10 million settlement she reportedly received from Tiger to stay mum about their affair.
In other Rachel news, RadarOnline reported yesterday that Rachel is now being accused of having an affair with her Celebrity Rehab co-star Jeremy London.
Jeremy’s estranged wifeMelissa London has apparently been telling friends she believes the Party of Five star is involved in a romantic relationship with Rachel.
Jeremy is however denying the affair, telling PEOPLE – “Without a doubt we are only friends. We never even kissed. We’ve never had an affair.”
Celebrity Rehab 4 is scheduled to premiere in October on VH1.
After getting wrapped up in the Danielle drama for way too long, Caroline is ready to take a stand. Wanting to support her family and friends, especially Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley, who is in jeopardy of having the hair-pulling incident on her permanent record, Caroline is ready to meet face-to-face with the enemy Danielle.
Meanwhile, Danielle, still claiming to be the victim of all Housewife drama discusses who is behind the attacks with her partner-in-crime Danny. Will Caroline’s attempt to get rid of Danielle finally work or are we in for another table-flipping situation? Find out tonight at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.
In other news, it seems with the end of the Real Housewives of New Jersey in sight, Kim Granatell is desperate to keep her name in the press.
The reason? Well for one Kimmie is not a fan of Teresa’s, adding, “I’m going to buy everything and re-sell it on eBay.” Kim tells Radar she plans on donating the proceeds to the Emmanuel Cancer charity.
Kim G. also manages to take a parting shot at Teresa, saying: “Her things should be for sale on a folding table on Mulberry Street.” Ouch.
And finally, RadarOnline is also reporting all of the New Jersey Housewives have been banned from the North Jersey Country Club. You know, the same country club in which the whole Danielle extension yanking drama went down.
The club’s General Manager John Stanley sent out a letter to the club members on July 19 apologizing, stating the ladies are not welcome back at the club, while also calling their behavior staged.
A preview clip of the finale episode is below -
