And this time around, Melissa, who is happily married to Tye Strickland, is not vying for a rose. The 27-year-old Dallas native is returning to co-host Bachelor Pad,with Chris Harrison.
Bachelor Pad is an all new ABC show that will feature previous contestants from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette seasons, as they live together in the mansion and compete in a series of challenges and dates for a chance at winning $250,000 — and a second chance at love.
“I’m excited.” Melissa tells PEOPLE. “It’s fun. It’s a brand new experience for me. I’ve never been on that side but I’m anxious. I’m excited and ready to start.”
Danielle Staub made her first public appearance last night since news of her new sex tape hit. The picture above was taken at the one year birthday celebration for Scores in New York City. And in case you’re wondering, Scores is a strip club.
TMZ has also published graphic photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star today. The photos show the 46-year-old mother of two smiling into the camera while sometimes holding up the camera herself. Eight of those images are below. The photos are tagged with Daniellestaubraw.com(the site is not yet up), where her sex tape will ultimately be released next Monday on June 14th.
Speaking out against Danielle now is her co-star Jacqueline Laurita. Jackqueline tells TMZ, “I’d be very happy if [Staub] left our show … Why doesn’t she just leave and go do porn?” Adding, “Danielle has total disregard for how [the tape] will affect her daughters’ impressionable years.”
The question everyone has now seems to be did Danielle leak her own sex tape? Well Jacqueline seems to think so, as she also took to her twitter to express what most of us suspect. She tweeted, “Heard from a VERY reliable source that D (Danielle) released her OWN sex tape. Heard it’s disgusting. Such disregard 4 her kids. I feel horrible 4 them.”
Can’t say we disagree with Jacqueline. Why is Danielle the likely culprit behind this sex tape leak? Well for one, Hustler revealed this sex tape was shot last September, just a few months after she won an injunction to stop the release of her first tape with Steve Zalewski. Perhaps she wasn’t happy with that tape content, as it only included an oral sex scene shot with a cell phone camera. The new tape however includes 75 minutes of footage.
Another clue? As we have previously reported, porn companies cannot release a sex tape of a public figure without some kind of authorization, meaning Danielle and yes Kendra Wilkinson too, had to sign off on a release. Plus when you see the images from the tape, well it become more obvious.

So what’s an antention whoring reality star to do when several media outlets reveal her so called split from her husband is nothing short of a publicity stunt?
Well if you’re Heidi Montag, star of the Hills, you attempt to take things up a notch by calling your favorite paparazzi photo agency and then heading up to the court house to file for a legal separation. RadarOnline confirms Heidi called a paparazzi agency to tip them off about her courthouse appearance.
The only problem is no one is buying Heidi’s latest stunt. A legal separation is nothing other than a piece of paper that states her earnings will become hers alone from the date of “separation” from Hubby Spencer Pratt.
As we reported last week, people close to the two have confirmed their “split” is their latest attention getting ploy. “This breakup is the latest part of Spencer’s master plan,” an insider told Us Weekly, explaining that the couple is in panic mode now that The Hills is winding down. They are “laughing over” the breakup headlines “and having a blast,” added another source.
Others not buying the fake split? Heidi’s co-stars from the Hills. “I don’t buy it,” saidLo Bosworth. “I’ve worked with them for too long, and they haven’t been filming, so I think this is a way they think they can get back on the show for the last few episodes.”
Unfortunately for Heidi, Linday Lohan’s court appearance yesterday seems to have stolen her fake news thunder, so it will only be a matter of time before these two famewhores leak out another fake story.
In the audio, which his lawyers are now calling an unauthorized recording, Gregg can be heard bashing the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, saying she has let the Housewives fame go to her head. “I put $300,000 of my own money for [NeNe] to become a housewife. Without that, she wouldn’t be sh*t . . . She’s going to give me every dime of my $300,000 back,” said an angry Gregg.
As we reported last week, Gregg was secretly recorded by radio host Corey King, during what he thought was a private phone call between the two. The reason King decided to tape Gregg’s conversation? Well allegedly, Gregg owes Cory some money and began avoiding Corey when he couldn’t pay him back.
In a new statement released through his lawyers at The Gardner Law Group, Gregg apologizes to his wife and acknowledges the two are having marital problems. The statement also claims Gregg’s conversation with King took place after an argument with Nene.
Excerpts from his statement below -
“On June 2, 2010, an unauthorized audio taped conversation between Mr. Gregg Leakes and Mr. Corey King was made privy to the public by Mr. King and Large FM. While Mr. King touted an “exclusive interview”, the taped recording was obtained by fraud and deception. Neither Mr. King nor Large FM were granted consent to interview Mr. Leakes and an interview never occurred.
Throughout the duration of the call with Mr. King, Mr. Leakes was under the impression that he was simply confiding in a friend after an argument with his wife. However, Mr. King has demonstrated through this blatant disregard of Mr. Leakes’ privacy that he does not even comprehend the word “friend”. The audio recording was deceptive and the release of it was nothing short of malicious.
It is not a secret to anyone that Mr. and Mrs. Leakes are facing marital challenges, a situation common to many couples. However, there is no doubt that Mr. King’s intentions were dishonorable, hateful, and inexcusable. His deceptive act was committed without any regard to Mr. or Mrs. Leakes.
Mr. Leakes has apologized privately to his wife and he offers a sincere apology to the others mentioned in the audio. Any further discussion of the matter should be amongst Mr. Leakes and those individuals, privately.”

While the all new second season of MTV’s Jersey Shoredoesn’t premiere until July 29th, MTV has released a sneak peak of what is to come in the upcoming season.
The 13 minute clip shows the eight cast members as they prepare to leave for Miami Beach, where the second season was taped. The show’s break out star Snookiintroduces us to her new boyfriend, Emilio Masella, whom she refers to as her “amazing gorilla juicehead.” And in case you’re wondering, the two have since broken up. Snooki also shares that she doesn’t tan as much anymore because President Obama implemented a 10% tax on tanning.
We also see Sammi as she prepares to leave for Miami. Sammi reveals she is no longer with Ronnie but doesn’t know what will happen in the house. Vinny also lets us in that his main focus this season is to hook up with “pretty quality girls.”
The sneak peek is below -
Meanwhile in other Shore news, the show’s creator, Sallyann Salsano, made headlines last week when she shared that she is so worried about the cast members contracting STDs that she hands out herpes medication “like M&Ms.”
“We hand it out like M&Ms! ‘Hey kids, it’s time for Valtrex!’ It’s like a herpes nest. They’re all in there mixing it up,” Salsano said.
Hollyscoop was able to interview the cast during a recent event and they appeared puzzled by Salsano’s comments. “Really? I did not even hear that. What set was this? I wasn’t passed out anything. What story was that?” The Situation said.
Added Sammi, “No, I have no idea anything about that. That is weird. I don’t know why she would say anything about that.”

Well it’s now June, and TMZ is confirming today that Hustler will be releasing the graphic sex tape on June 14th, which is next Monday. The big shocker? This sex tape was shot in September 2009, just months after Danielle was able to successfully stop the release of a previous sex tape she made with her ex Steve Zalewski.
Steve is Danielle’s boy toy from season 1 of the show, and Steve will coincidentally be appearing on next week’s episode to discuss the first sex tape with Danielle’s co-star Jacqueline Laurita. According to Steve, his sex tape with Danielle was only an oral sex scene.
As for what’s on the new sex tape? According to CrabbyGoLightly.com, Danielle and her pierced you know what will be seen engaging in “some missionary, some doggy style, and some pile-driving” with the unidentified male in the 45 minute tape. The crabbygolightly site claims, “You really don’t see her partner’s face, just his condom-covered member. At least she’s practicing safe sex.”
The man on the sex tape has yet to be identified. And in case you’re wondering, most adult companies do not release sex tapes without the consent of the star, meaning there’s a 99.98% chance Danielle has authorized the release of this tape. Let’s all hope that Danielle, who happens to be a mother of two daughters, is being compensated well for selling her soul it.
The above picture of Teresa was taken last night (and yes she really wore that outfit) at a Project Ladybug benefit in Paterson, NJ. UsWeekly was able to interview Teresa and of course the hot topic was her bankruptcy filing.
“I have moral support; I have my daughters and my husband. As long as we’re in good health, that’s all we can do. I think this kind of situation is all over the world,” said Teresa who also claims her financial issues will be addressed on a feature episode of the Bravo show.
Teresa also revealed she contemplated even showing up to the event in light of negative press. “I was like, ‘Should I go?’” she told Us. “I think that by me being here, hopefully everybody will see that I’m just trying to do the best I can.”

The 25-year-old reality star appeared on the Ryan Seacrest‘s KIIS-FM radio show Monday, and when asked if rumors are true that she doesn’t choose anyone on the dating show, Ali coyly replied “maybe.”
“If I happen to find love on the show, would I pick someone in the end? Yes,” she went on. “But if I didn’t find love on the show, there’s absolutely no way that I would pick someone for the sake of picking. I went in with that mindset and it didn’t change the entire time.”
Ali, who famously chose her Facebook advertising executive job over Jake Pavelka last year vows to not make the same mistake again.
“Not that I think leaving Jake was the wrong choice…but I think putting a job over love is not really the right choice,” she said. “Honestly, when I think back to it, if I really, truly thought I could end up with Jake and we were meant for each other and were probably going to get married, I probably would have given up my job at Facebook.”
Ali also reveals she’s open to any opportunity that may come her way including an appearance on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars.
