There’s been a lot of speculation that Bravo is delaying the 7th season to accommodate Teresa’s release from prison, which is due to happen sometime around the end of this year, in theory. Joe Giudice said Teresa was done with RHONJ unless offered ” a lot of money” – well, has she been offered that moola?! (Goodness knows she needs it!) because her attorney says she’s in the process of negotiating a contract with the network.
Teresa’s attorney shared that she will most-likely be returning to RHONJ if terms can be agreed upon – and really why wouldn’t she because it’s basically The Teresa Show. “Anyone who has watched that show since the very first episode understands that Teresa Giudice is the central figure around which the show revolves,” her attorney James J. Leonard Jr. says.
Nia Frazier is the sweet-natured, hard-working fan-favorite on Dance Moms, even if her belligerent dance coach Abby Lee Miller doesn’t recognize her as the amazing person she is.
Nia recently released her first music video, Star In Your Own Life, which she worked on with Aubrey O’Day, and she doesn’t care whether Abby likes it or not, because she’s proud of herself! Nia also shares she’s remained close friends with her former teammates and co-stars Paige Hyland and Chloe Lukasiak, and that all the girls on the show support each other despite Abby’s attempt to cause friction.
The former Couples Therapy star made a sex tape, it founds its way to Vivid Entertainment headquarters, and Steven Hirsch has offered Courtney big bucks for the rights to the tape. I can’t even snark about this. It makes me sad.
The only positive… Courtney‘s sex tape is a solo effort. No Doug Hutchison.
Bethenny Frankel is switching gears from “professional reality star” to producer. She’s been hinting about working on a new television project for a while, and that new project is a cooking show called ‘Food Porn.’
FYI Network has greenlit the 14-episode series co-executive produced by Bethenny (who mercifully will remain behind the camera) and hosted by New York restaurateur and The Meatball Shop co-owner Michael Chernow. ‘Food Porn’ will build on the “cultural phenomena” of how social media and food have merged together to create an interactive world of cooking and eating.
For each episode Michael Chernow will travel the country to find the most “buzzed-about food” and meet with those behind the most delicious online food posts.
Although both sides of Bruce Jenner’s family showed public support (tweets, interviews, soundbites) in the wake of his Diane Sawyer interview last week, things aren’t as hunky-dory as they may seem. (Are they ever!?) In the new issue of US Weekly, an “inside source” reveals, “It’s still Camp Jenner and Camp Kardashian, in a major way.” (On the Kardashian side are Kourtney, Kim, Khloe, Rob, Kendall, Kylie, and Kris; on the Jenner side are Burt, Casey, Brandon, and Brody, Bruce’s kids from his marriages to Chrystie Scott and Linda Thompson.) Evidence of this divide may lie in the fact that the two camps have not come together in a joint statement, joint interview, or – US is told – even in a joint viewing of the original interview on TV last Friday. US reports, “In order to keep the peace, Bruce scheduled two separate viewing sessions for the 20/20 interview, one with his Keeping Up With the Kardashians family, and one with Scott and his four eldest kids, who appeared on the ABC special in a show of solidarity with their father.”
Kylie and Kendall Jenner, the youngest of the Jenner children, and the “link” between the Jenner/Kardashian tribes in many ways, are reported to be struggling the most with Bruce’s public revelation. “The whole transition was much harder for the Kardashian kids and Kylie and Kendall,” a source tells PEOPLE. “It was hard to grasp. And there was a lot of lying to the kids over the years on Bruce’s part, even as close as they were. It’s going to take some time for the kids to get used to it all.” But one more clue of the disrupt between the families came in the form of a tweet from Burt Jenner, 36, who wrote, “Having a hard time not putting a few people on blast who were not supporters beforehand, but want to act like they were all along.” Hinting at the tension between the Jenners and Kardashians, one source tells us, “He [Burt] feels they’re [the Kardashians] only supportive now for publicity.” Burt has since deleted the tweet.
