On last night’s episode of Mob Wives, Renee and Carla made amends after a series of miscommunications left them at odds, Drita took more steps towards divorcing Lee and Ramona got arrested!
Every week I think I am going to be annoyed with Renee. Every single week. And then I love her more and more. I’m starting to feel like I might love Big Ang just as much. I guess I love an over the top broad or something. Too many years spent watching Dynasty reruns in my parent’s basement growing up, perhaps.
The episode begins with the ladies making the rounds to discuss the throwdown between Drita, Karen and Ramona at Renee‘s birthday party. Everyone is blaming everyone else, because really, who wants Renee to be pissed at them? Drita and Big Ang grab a cocktail and discuss Ramona’s bodyguard act. Was anyone else waiting for Whitney Houston to burst out singing “I Will Always Love You”?

In a recent interview with NecoleBitchie.com, the controversial former manager of rapper Jim Jones discusses her edit on the show, her real friends and how she got to the top of her profession… that, and a little rumor about her boyfriend’s fight with Jim Jones. Because it’s not reality television if there isn’t fighting — even off-camera — right? An excerpt from that interview is below.
Yandy, you came out the Violator Management camp. Exactly how long have you been in the industry?
I got an internship with Violator in 2004, right out of college at Howard. Then I turned that into a position there.
When and where did you meet Jim Jones?
I met Jim in 2005 on a private jet chartered by Russell Simmons. They were flying us to Detroit for the Hip Hop summit to register young voters and Jim and I sat next to one another. He kept telling me that he managed this group The Diplomats and I told him to hit me up if he needed any help. He started calling me every day and eventually I was like ‘You’re going to have to pay me for this.” So I became his official manager and left Violator in 2005.
On the show you’re definitely portrayed as a woman about her business. Were you always that way? Or was there a situation that brought that out of you?
You know what, when I went to Howard, I got a scholarship the first two years. But my mother made me pay for the last two years. So that really taught me to be about my business. Yeah, being social was great and I did that too but I definitely learned quickly that I had to handle mine. And when school was over, I brought that same mindset to Violator Management. I knew I had to hurry up and find a job so I could pay back my student loans. So I came in on my business.
So on the show you made the statement that at the end of the day, for you it’s about making money…
See that was only part of the statement. What they didn’t show you was that I also said how much I love Jim. See a lot of that is changed in editing or manipulated by producers.
Let’s talk about that. Are you happy with the way you’ve been represented? (Groans) See, here’s the thing: most people don’t realize how this really works. If the producers contact me and say there’s a woman named Erica Mena interested in meeting with me about management, I don’t know what an Erica Mena is. But I took the meeting and all the sudden its made to look like I’m starting something. Or if Emily [Bustamante] invites me along with the rest of the girls to her party, I don’t know what type of party it is until I get there. And really I didn’t come with Kimbella. The camera just shows us walking up to the house together, so now it looks like I’ve brought Kimbella [Vanderhee] and I didn’t.
So have you been portrayed wrong?
Listen, you can’t edit something that you do. I am who I am on the show with one exception: I really don’t have any drama in my life. I’m not around grown women fighting and all of that. That doesn’t happen in my normal life. A lot of that is manipulated because it makes sense in the storyline.
Would you consider your cast mates friends in real life?
No. I’m friends with Kimbella. She is genuinely my friend. I like Somaya [Reece]. I like Olivia. I knew Olivia from my Violator days. I wasn’t on her day to day team but we got to know each other better after that.
What about Chrissy?
I never had a reason to be close with Chrissy [Lampkin]. Before the show I really only had a relationship with Chrissy through Jim. If we were going somewhere and Jim was like ‘I’m bringing Chrissy’ then I was like cool. But we never hung out or had dinner at each others houses. I have that relationship with Juelz and Kim. I’m the God mother of their child.
So you’ve finished filming and I know you’ve got a big episode coming up and you can’t tell us too much. So let me ask you this, are you at peace with how the situation ended with you and Jim?
I’m at peace. Absolutely. You know what? The show brought a lot of things to light. I’m quick to brother out somebody. I’m super quick to call a dude my brother – and part of that comes from being a woman in this industry. Calling someone my brother lets other people know there’s nothing going on and it sends a message to that dude that there’s a line he shouldn’t cross with me. But Jim? Jim was deeper than my brother. In a lot of ways I think of Jim as my first born. He really was my very first project. We were broke together and then got rich together.
So where is that relationship now?
I will always love Mama Jones. Mama Jones and I used to talk for hours about all sorts of things – not just Jim – so I will always have a relationship with her.
What about Jim?
I’ll just say this: Jim will always be a very important factor in my career history. Like I said, he was there in the beginning, so my appreciation for that will always be there.
[If] they asked you back for Season 3, would you do it?
I don’t know at this point. Honestly. The people that can really affect my bottom line, know what it is. But the other people that see the show and call me the Don King of the show, they think ‘oh Yandy’s messy.’ I don’t know if there’s anywhere else for me to go on the show. And I don’t need my own show. America likes to watch a train wreck. Chrissy could have her own show. But I’m not a train wreck. So I don’t know.
Do you have a boyfriend? (Laughs) Yes, I have a boo.
Did he beat up Jim Jones?
I don’t know. I wasn’t there. I heard Jim say it was a botched robbery in Harlem.
Did your boyfriend attempt to rob Jim Jones, in Harlem?
No. My boyfriend definitely doesn’t need to rob anyone.
Whoa! According to the rumor mill, Yandy’s boyfriend allegedly beat up Jim Jones a few weeks ago in NYC. Sources close to Jim have, however, insisted it was a botched robbery. That is some pretty hefty stuff if you ask me. Personally, I enjoy some Yandy on the show, but all the ladies bring that certain something (read: DRAMZ!) to each episode.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YANDY’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU THINK SHE’S A LEGITIMATE PROFESSIONAL OR THE “DON KING” OF THE SERIES? ANY TRUTH TO THE RUMOR THAT HER BOYFRIEND BEAT UP JIM JONES?
Last summer, Dr.Drewannounced he no longer had time to do his show Celebrity Rehab, and it would be taking an indefinite hiatus. Now, it looks like the good doctor has found time in his schedule to host yet another reality show, but this time, it will feature regular people; young adults in their twenties with addiction issues.
A press release posted by VH-1 has more details on the new show with a working title of Rehab With Dr. Drew.
VH1 is once again partnering with Dr. Drew Pinsky to lead a group of addicts through the difficult process of getting clean and sober. The new season of “Rehab with Dr. Drew” (Tentative title) will not feature celebrities with substance abuse issues, but instead follow the real-life experiences of young adults who are struggling with addiction as they undergo the same detoxification and treatment plan at The Pasadena Recovery Center as utilized in “Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.” “Rehab with Dr. Drew” is set to premiere in the summer of 2012 on VH1 with eight one-hour episodes.
Has it finally happened? Has Dr. Drew simply run out of D-listers willing to put their lives on screen for a minuscule shot at a comeback by attempting the extremely difficult and private matter that is attending substance abuse rehab on a reality show? Well, that is up for debate.
Surely, regular folks will demand much less money than a known celebrity and will probably be far more willing to discuss their lives. While Celebrity Rehab did “go there” on many occasions due to the nature of the show, actors are still actors and I’d bet money that there were many things that were kept from the public.
The network claims the show’s format is changing due to “many people” who have decided to seek help due to the show. Dr. Drew hopes that this show will inspire others to take the same step, saying “”It is my sincere hope that this show will encourage people who are struggling to seek the help. Treatment works and there is hope and recovery is possible.”

Every season of the Bachelorhas that one super cray overly emotional contestant and unfortunately for Jenna Burke, she was “that girl” this season!
Ben Flajnik ended up eliminating the NYC blogger last week following two episodes of a cry-fest. In a recent interview with the press, Jenna, 27, reveals she doesn’t blame Ben for sending her packing.
“Watching it, I wanted to shake myself and say, get a grip,” says Jenna. “I would have sent myself home, to be honest,” she says adding that she was able to laugh at herself while watching the episodes. Glad to know she was laughing with the rest of us!
Jenna goes on to blame a bad break up for her being overly emotional and vulnerable. “It was just a rocky start. A lot of people react differently. I think we all have our own insecurities. I apparently cry and other girls come off more aggressive.” She adds: “Everyone always talks about strategy. I had no strategy. I thought, am I supposed to have one? I thought this was about finding a connection.”
Calling her time on the show “one big therapy session,” Jenna, however, owns up to her behavior on the show. “I’m owning it. I cried a lot. I’m human. My emotions and nerves got the best of me. But… I have no regrets,” she says.
And her thoughts on Ben today? “I think Ben is a great guy. It’s tough to be in that situation with all these women vying for your attention. He maintained his sanity and went with the flow,” says Jenna.
Jenna also shared her thoughts on two troublemakers of the most controversial contestants thus far, a.k.a Courtneyand Blakeley. “The girl does have a heart. But I think we all have our insecurities. The way Blakeley deals with her insecurities is she’s more aggressive. She can only stay strong for so long,” Jenna says of Blakeley. When it comes to Courtney, she adds: “I just know she’s a model. She plays with her hair a lot. After watching the show, I think there’s a serious case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”
Moving on to tonight’s new episode as a mystery woman will be coming on to the show to try to win Ben’s heart!
According to OK! magazine, the mystery woman is not an ex-girlfriend of Ben’s but rather the ex of former BachelorBrad Womack! Yes Shawntel Newton, who was dumped by Brad after the hometown dates on his season, comes on the show to fight for Ben’s love. Seriously what are these women seeing in Ben that we’re not???
“It’s Shawntel, and I’m here to date Ben,” Shawtel announces to the girls in a preview of tonight’s episode. “You don’t know Ben!” one of the girls screams. It appears poor Shawntel will be receiving a very negative reception from the other ladies! How will Ben feel about this surprise?
We will find out tonight (8/7c) on ABC.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JENNA’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE WAS GOING THROUGH A TOUGH TIME OR JUST SUPER CRAY? THOUGHTS ON SHAWNTEL WANTING TO DATE BEN?
It’s Sunday, the day of rest and that day where you are filled with free-floating anxiety. Not because you have to return to work tomorrow, but because it’s Real Housewives of Atlantatime and some states cruelly do not allow you to purchase alcohol on Sundays. Personally, I think Bravo should petition those laws to change. RHOA without wine is criminal.
However, I digress. While the ladies have been in the news due to Nene Leakes‘ guest role on Glee (and her unsurprising revelation that she is still with “ex-husband” Gregg) as well as the very sad revelation of Marlo’s past, the other women have been fairly quiet on the scene.
Kandi Burruss, songwriter turned adult toy impresario, gave an interview to Sister 2 Sister about the group that made her famous, Xscape, claiming they will never have a reunion: “We didn’t get along. Why would I go back for a headache and I [didn't] really make that much money in the situation? That don’t make sense.”
Kandi also adds that despite the group’s success they hardly made any money. “I don’t want to give no exact numbers, but we didn’t make that much money off of our albums for us to have three platinum albums… We really didn’t get a lot of money as a group,” stated Kandi.
Also, not making sense isCynthia Bailey in her latest Bravo blog, where she reveals that husband of the year Peter Thomasrecently gave her a gift of a three-day spa retreat… for her alone.
“I am so blessed people have responded to my first big business venture with so much love and support. Having to review thousands of applications to attend The Bailey Agency is a great problem to have! However, my husband Peter did surprise me! Peter sent me away to an astonishing all inclusive spa for three days. I usually don’t like surprises, but since I was beyond exhausted and in dire need of a massage, I made an exception. I spent three gorgeous days alone doing spa treatments, reading books, napping, and watching movies. It was incredible, and I felt reawakened! Thank you, Peter, for the gift of rejuvenation and peace! I love you for giving me exactly what I needed. As always, I am grateful.”
While the gesture is sweet, three whole days alone at a spa? One day alone at the Atlanta Bliss outpost would have been nice, but three days seems like he is sending her away for other reasons. She also explains Peter’s disappearance at the opening of The Bailey Moneypit, The Bailey Agency. Apparently, Cynthia’s party was the one time Peter had to run to his business, Bar One, to “deal with something.”
“Peter Thomas was the one that spent most of his day setting up everything up for The Bailey Agency opening. He made sure that everything was beautiful and perfect. I was happy that he took the time to help me out, because managing Bar One is a full-time job. Between bouncing back and forth between The Bailey Agency and Bar One, he was exhausted. At one point he stepped out to check on something at Bar One and was MIA during my thank you speech. Of course, when he returned the speech was over and the rest is history. My only issue with Peter was that he should have communicated to me that he had to step out and would be right back. Communication is key!”
Again, somewhat understandable, but I’m curious why Peter just didn’t send Cynthia a simple text about where he was, or let any one else at the party know he would be stepping out. Oh, I know why: because he is inconsiderate and selfish.
Cynthia also explains why she received marriage counseling so quickly, turning it around on us, and saying we should all get counseling! She goes on:
“We needed to bring in a third party. So we decided to seek counseling from Pastor Pollard. He was the pastor that married us, and we both welcomed his advice. After talking with the pastor, Peter and I both left the church with a sense of encouragement, enlightenment and support.
I would recommend any married couple to consider marriage counseling. Any marriage can benefit from the spiritual support. People are not perfect, and most marriages are not perfect. I don’t want to change, or expect Peter to change. We are who we are. I just want us to be better than we are. We love each other and this is a fight worth fighting for.”
I would be very worried if my very young marriage already necessitated marriage counseling, but I’ve only been engaged once (as opposed to Cynthia’s three times) so clearly, I know nothing. Let’s hope these wacky kids figure it out!
Moving on to newbie Marlo Hampton, who hosted an event in ATL days ago, only to suffer an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction! Err we’ll just let the pics do the talking below!
On tonight’s episode, the women gear up for their big vacation to Africa. In the following preview clip, the producers force Kandi invites all the women to sit in the private room of a restaurant with Kandi’s mother, Joyce, at the head of the table to clear the air. Nene and Kim are contractually obligated to sit across from each other and refuse to even say hi, even at Joyce’s request. This might get weirder than Crazy Island!

With the second season of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills(finally) winding down, viewers still don’t know what to think about resident drama queen Taylor Armstrong. The lady who made an entire series revolve around her faux tears (are her tear ducts frozen from botox?!) is still leaving us perplexed months after filming ended and months after the unfortunate death of her estranged husband Russell Armstrong.
Taylor, who is said to be destroyed by Russell’s passing and working hard to rebuild her life as a stronger person, has been all over the place in the media giving interviews, selling books and giving a very interesting portrait of a woman in grief. In the latest, three conflicting reports give us three different versions of Taylor — really, who knows what to believe.
First up, from RadarOnline comes the story of Taylor, the abused wife, and more information about the time-frame for Monday’s episode. Next week viewers will see Lisa Vanderpump re-opening her revamped lounge SUR with a big party attended by all the ladies of the cast. Previews show Lisa questioning Taylor about a suspicious bruise near her eye and Taylor having yet another tearless, wailing breakdown over her marriage.
According to the new report, more than a month had lapsed between shooting because Taylor had been hospitalized after an alleged serious beating left her face terribly bruised. Taylor also confessed to having Lasik eye surgery in early July, while filming was still taking place. Taylor has stated Russell severely beat her following the surgery, dislocating her cornea which resulted in the hospitalization. The photos she released of the alleged beating stemmed from that incident.
“Taylor still was bruised when she was at the party. She admits on camera to the ladies that Russell had badly beaten her. This beating had taken place after she had told him their marriage was over,” an insider reveals.
“Taylor wanted to face the ladies, especially Camille Grammer, because Taylor felt that Kelsey’s ex-wife had put her in danger by telling the others that Russell had been violent with her in the past,” Taylor the insider adds.
Last week, viewers saw Taylor speaking to wannabe Housewife Dana Wilkey supposedly a few days after Russell moved out and days before next week’s episode was filmed. At that time Taylor did not appear to have any visible facial injuries.
According to this report Lisa postponed the reopening of SUR to accommodate Taylor’s healing because Bravo wanted to film the event. Which would mean all the ladies are acting on next week’s episode?!
“Taylor’s hospitalization threw a monkey wrench in Lisa’s bottom line. The restaurant had been ready to open, viewers will see Lisa frantically trying to get the restaurant open, but Bravo had told her they wanted to film the grand opening party, so they had to wait until Taylor was out of the hospital,” the source describes of Bravo’s decision to fabricate scenes.
“Taylor wanted to face all of the women in one place. She wanted and needed to have them see her with the bruise on her face. Taylor was in VERY heavy make-up that night.” SUR allegedly actually re-opened in early-September, which was almost a month after Russell’s death — Perhaps this was a special event party filmed expressly for Bravo, but it’s very interesting from a timing perspective.
Last week, Bravo filmed the season two reunion. Andy Cohen stated that Taylor “didn’t shed a tear” during filming, which left many viewers alarmed given the tumultuous season and all that has been exposed in the course of filming.
“Taylor didn’t cry at the reunion because she is such a stronger person now, and she is no longer a victim,” the source clarifies. “This was a tremendous accomplishment because of everything that she has been through, with Russell’s suicide, and Taylor’s issues with Camille and the other Housewives this season.”
Now, I’m not sure what I think of Taylor’s allegations just yet, but I’ll withhold complete judgment until viewing the remainder of the season and the reunion, where Taylor has promised all the “haters” will eat “crow.”
Moving on, in report two we see Taylor, the grifter mess in danger of being exposed, also from the RadarOnline. Radar has released photos of a drunk and hysterical Taylor being hauled out Craig’s — a Beverly Hills restaurant — by a friend on Thursday night.
“Judging by the way she was staggering she was very drunk. She couldn’t stand up without help and was being held up by her friend as she walked to the car. She looked absolutely wasted,” a witness reports. “She was obviously very emotional and distraught. When she got in the back of the car — with considerable help from her friend — she broke down in floods of tears.”
This is not the first time Taylor has been photographed completely intoxicated in recent months. When she was in NYC to film WWHL Taylor appeared completely out of it and looked a wreck. “She’s a total mess,” a friend reveals. “Her world was built on a fantasy house of cards that’s crashing down.”
“Taylor’s whole persona is false and with Russell’s death friends say that she’s afraid the jig is up and people are aware of what a phony she is,” the friend adds. Indeed, Taylor has been in court battling a lawsuit filed by MyMedicalRecords.com, a company Russell and her supposedly scammed.
“Every time I’ve been around her lately she drinks excessively, we’re all worried about how badly she seems to be doing,” the friend muses. Multiple reports have come forward questioning Taylor’s drinking habits and asserting that friends and family are so concerned they have encouraged Taylor to consider rehab. Taylor’s drinking was also a concern on the show when viewers watched her become intoxicated and out of control with rage and emotions on several episodes.
Finally, Taylor is moving on as photos of Taylor on the prowl on a date are below. Girl’s got bills to pay! Photogs spotted the grieving widow with a mystery man Thursday night — guess where!? Craig’s restaurant in Beverly Hills. Headed into the restaurant Taylor was a little steadier on her feet, but judging from the above information, I’m guessing a second date isn’t happening…
Taylor is seen walking with and then hugging the unnamed man. Photos of Taylor with her date are below!

THOUGHTS ON THE SHOCKING INFORMATION ABOUT THE FILMING SCHEDULE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE CONCERNING THE LATEST INFORMATION ON TAYLOR?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE TAYLOR DRUNK WITH HER DATE -
They have been dubbed the ‘Fakest Family In America‘ and now we have proof that not only are the Kardashians fake but their reality shows are also phony and staged!
While a new episode of Kourtney and Kim Take New Yorkaired last Sunday, Kim Kardashian’s husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries, made the following cryptic tweet — “I can’t wait for the truth to come out! People will be surprised or maybe they won’t. #FCC.” This had many wondering what Kris could have been referring to and folks, I believe we have cracked the code.
The photos you’re seeing above of Kim and pimpmomager Kris Jenner were taken on December 6, 2011. The photo agency which snapped the pics stated Kim and Kris were leaving a studio in Los Angeles.
Does Kim outfit look familiar? It should because Kim is sporting the same exact outfit, same hairstyle and same makeup as she did in a scene that aired on KKTNY last Sunday which according to E! was filmed in Dubai… in October… weeks before Kim pulled the plug on her marriage.
In the scene, Kim tries to garner sympathy appear remorseful as she tells her mom she is having marital issues with hubby Kris. There’s only one problem folks: Kim filed for divorce on October 31 and it appears that “Dubai” scene was actually taped in Los Angeles on Dec. 6. Still having doubts? Well, feel free to check out the outfit Kris’ assistant is carrying behind her. Ding ding ding! It’s the SAME “Dubai” outfit plus Kris is still wearing the same earrings.
Wowzers. So this proves the Kardashians’ shows are as phony as the Kardashians. Furthermore, Kim and Kris actually filmed this scene last month to not only try to fool their audience, but to also try to make Kim a victim. Unfortunately for Kris Humphries, he didn’t get a chance to go back and film phony scenes to help his image.
Even before we were able to put two and two together with these images many were already doubting the authenticity of this “heart to heart” scene between Kim and mom Kris.
For starters, TheImproper blog via Perez Hilton points out that in the scene:
- Windows are totally blacked out
- No visible lights and the scene has low lighting
- Scene seems contrived, and could have been staged to gain sympathy for Kim
It gets even better as two body language experts for the HollywoodLife blog stated the scene was fake based on the body language and the reaction of Kris to Kim’s bombshell about her marital issues.
“[This seems] completely phony, staged and emotionless for someone who is not happy about a marriage,” Dr. Lillian Glass told the HollywoodLife. “Plus, Kris’ dialogue is just that like of a bad actress giving bad dialogue. There is too much pause time between the answers and her reaction shows no surprise and a matter of factness monotone — much like Kim’s indicative non-genuineness.”
Also, raising a red flag was Kris’ reaction to her daughter’s bad news. “She is smiling while her daughter is sharing this terrible news,” says body language expert Patti Wood. “This is not normal. She isn’t leaning toward Kim to show her support or trying to comfort her in any way.”
Still need more proof that the above photo of Kim was taken in December? UsWeekly did a story about Kim and that photo of her on December 7. The story also states Kim was snapped leaving a studio in LA on Dec. 6.
The actual clip of Kim and Kris’ phony heart to heart is below.
As for Kris Humphries, his family and friends have always insisted the show was fake and scripted including scenes which demonstrate Kris being a jerk or villain. “Little did Kris know that he was being set up,” his father, William Humphries, told Life & Style in November. “Kris got used — 100 percent used.”
To close out this story, SHAME on the Kardashians and SHAME on E!. It’s one thing to make a reality show and kind of create scenarios to make it more interesting, but to actually go back and act out FAKE scenes months after the fact is a new low. No word yet on how the Kardashians and E! will try to defend this.

As I’m sure you know the Real Housewives of New Jersey drama never ends. Long after she left the cast, Danielle Staub continues to be at odds with her former co-stars and has continued to be the subject of much controversy and speculation.
Melissa Gorgawas infamously accused of communicating with Danielle and giving her dirt on Teresa Giudice — a tale that has never been substantiated nor disproved. Jacqueline Laurita has long suspected that Danielle was spreading false rumors about her and the other ladies. Well, vindication is Jacqueline’s.
Jacqueline’s persistence on Twitter has finally paid off because after Danielle had a falling out with her number one fan and co-conspirator Mardigrasbarbie, sh*t hit the fan. Or Direct Messages did anyway! Mardigrasbarbie was able to provide “proof” that Danielle was intentionally stirring up trouble and going to the tabloids with stories that were apparently made up. Oh, to have Danielle’s imagination and spare time…
Mardigrasbarbie, a longtime fan of the show, was apparently crazy naive enough to consider Danielle a friend even though they never met in real life and had only an online relationship. Mardigrasbarbie’s real world name is allegedly Nikola Charpentier, and together with Danielle, the poor man’s Thelma & Louise would hang out on Twitter all day (jobs, anyone?) engaging in arguments against any detractors. Mardigrasbarbie became Danielle’s henchman — her online Danny, if you will.
Their relationship started to unravel about a week ago. Danielle suddenly unfollowed Mardigrasbarbie on Twitter and Mardi was apparently tired of doing Danielle’s evil bidding. Signs of trouble began to appear with ominous Tweets such as this: “Sometimes ppl are manipulated to do things out of their nature. Not because they are weak, but bc the manipulator is a professional at it!” There’s many more like it, but you get the drift.
It seems that Mardigrasbarbie has run into the curse of Danielle, a situation experienced by many before her — including former nemesis by association only, Jacqueline! The unfortunate side-effect of being Danielle’s friend (besides associating with Danielle herself) is that Daneille doesn’t tell the truth and she uses everyone.
See, once Danielle has no use for her little friends, she turns on them or drops them faster than you can say “Posche!” Or “Strip club!” And very often it is about the same time these friends realize Danielle is a manipulator with a little problem called dishonesty. Can you imagine if she and Taylor Armstrong teamed up? Oh lawd…
In order to get back at Danielle, the spurned sidekick is now releasing a plethora of communications between Danielle and herself. And they expose Danielle basically telling Mardigrasbarbie to make up stories and and tweet them to the other ladies on the cast and even contact the tabloids with false information! Some of those exposed conversations are below! They are a little hard to follow, but you’ll get the gist.
Amidst the revelations comes the idea that many of the stories we have used to harangue and hate several NJ Housewives likely aren’t true at all! Oops. I guess the age old adage is true — always consider the source!
Jacqueline has claimed that Danielle made up the story about her being a stripper and leaked it to the press. Immediately after learning the news of Mardi’s betrayal, Jacqueline turned to her best friend in times of crisis: Twitter, where she embarked on a rampage to spread the truth.
“WOW! SOOO MANY CRAZY LIES PUT OUT THERE! I INTERCEPTED THE CRAZY HOUR LONG INTERVIEW I TOLD U ALL ABOUT! DANIELLE STAUB NEEDS SERIOUS HELP!!,” Jacqueline Tweeted.
Following that up with this: “HEY @BravoAndy I STAND BY MY OPINION THAT DANIELLE IS CRAZY AND DANGEROUS! LIES! LIES! LIES! I SMELL ANOTHER DEFAMATION CASE GOING HER WAY”
“PEOPLE NEED TO KNOW THAT YOU JUST CAN’T MAKE UP FAKE STORIES AND LIES ABOUT PEOPLE THAT YOU CAN PRINT,SELL IT AND GET AWAY WITH THAT.U WONT!,” Jacqueline seethed. I love Jacs when she gets all fired up! I can just see her freaking out to Chris as she furiously types away at her iPhone while Chris sips some red wine. Some more of Jacqueline’s Tweets are below!
Sadly, Andy Cohen has not made any comments about this latest crazy incident. Ahhhh… Danielle, the original shady character of Housewives and our first notion that Bravo background checks were not nearly thorough enough! Also withholding comment — for now — is Teresa! I cannot wait to hear what she has to say about all of this!
The most unfortunate result of all the lies, is that Danielle’s behavior is likely partially to blame for Jacqueline’s and Teresa’s friendship ending. A fan asked Jacqueline if she was going to apologize to Teresa after learning that she was not responsible for all the false tabloid stories. Jacqueline responded, “NO. Because she does it too,” and included Teresa on the Tweet. Jacqueline quickly added: “but mostly about herself.”
Danielle is, of course, exonerating herself from blame and claiming that Mardigrasbarbie has made all of this up and it is the work of a lone crazy, obsessed fan. “I had [made up lies] do you honestly think I’d tell someone I never met? she’s playing u all,” Danielle Tweeted to Jacs and In Touch Weekly (the magazine that “uncovered” the so-called proof of Jacqueline’s past as a stripper).
“You know no one can break you when you’ve done nothing wrong darlin- in time all in good time people will see they r playing fools,” Danielle added. Danielle also claimed that a new fansite, D_Staub_Fans, that had cropped up in her “honor” was a fake account run by Mardigrasbarbie to further disparage her reputation.
Danielle claimed Mardi acted alone and would create constant fake accounts (remember the “little eggs” drama surrounding the RHONJ on Twitter) and attack other Housewives and fans. So what broke up the dynamic duo Danielle and Mardi? Ultimately Danielle asserts: “I asked her to STOP fighting w people it was bad energy! She wouldn’t – I blocked her”
Mardi Tweeted just how she got so wrapped up in this Danielle drama, “my heart went out to her. I truly felt bad. She’s the underdog so I was pulling for her. I was blinded.”
In response to the so-called mesages between Danielle and Mardigrasbarbie that seem to prove Danielle’s involvement, AllAboutTRH asked Danielle about what happened.
“I thanked her but her dm’s made me extremely uneasy. If i spoke to anyone she would attack them!,” Danielle remarked. And regarding the photograhic proof of said conversations, Danielle responded, “Honestly you see partial messages. At best she lives on her twitter. GN. Not defending myself bottom line! I’m a public figure. She got a little to aggressive. I was uncomfortable. Period” Ok, then!
Finally, in a bit of RHONJ that is not totally insane. Or maybe it is depending on how you look at it. Caroline Manzo the mama bear matriarch of the New Jersey ladies is in talks to get her own spin off. We all know she’s Andy’s favorite because he’s in love with Albie!
According to a new report the only Housewife already confirmed for Season 5 of the tumultuous show is Teresa and Jacqueline is definitely out (which has been corroborated in multiple reports). “They’re always looking for new cast members that would add something to the show; they’ve been heavily courting a few people from other networks who have shows,” a NJ insider tells Reality Weekly.
Caroline is still deciding whether or not to sign on for a fifth season and she is also in talks to develop her own show! About what I could only imagine? Babying her adult children and crying about how proud she is? “It’s all about timing,” the source explains. “She doesn’t jump into anything — and this is no different.”
