Teresa and Joe Giudice arrive at a federal court

Today is the big day!  Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice just arrived at federal court this morning to plead guilty as part of a plea deal with the prosecutors in their federal fraud case. 

Until we hear the final verdicts of what happened inside this morning, here are the photos of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars arriving to court just a bit ago to hold us over.  Stay tuned…

Updated Again:  The couple pled guilty in front of the judge this morning with a simple "yes, your honor" when asked if this is how they wished to plead.  Their sentencing will be on July 8th!

From NewJersey.com:  Under the plea agreements Joe "could be sentenced to a minimum of three years but less than four years in prison."  and Teresa "would face a term within the range of 21 to 27 months."    Teresa's attorney reserved the right to ask the judge for a sentence below the guidelines range based on family circumstances and her minimal role in the fraud.  The Judge is not obligated to accept the plea deal's sentencing!

Under their plea agreements, Joe Giudice, 43, could be sentenced to a minimum of three years but less than four years in prison, while Teresa Giudice, 41, would face a term within the range of 21 to 27 months.

Her attorney, Henry E. Klingeman, however, reserved the right to ask the judge for a sentence below the guidelines range based on family circumstances — the couple has four daughters — and her minimal role.

U.S. District Judge Esther Salas set sentencing for July 8. She is not obligated to accept the sentencing parameters agreed upon in the plea deal.

Premiere of 'The Hungover Games' - Arrivals

Um…I'm not sure what to do with this information. It's just plain gross, but I think the issue I have with it is that I am not at all surprised by it. Have I become so jaded that nothing to do with Farrah Abraham shocks me anymore? Yes. The answer to that question is yes. In fact, with this morsel of gossip, I find myself saying "eww" in the highest.

So, when the Teen Mom star isn't waxing her daughter's eyebrows or showing up to Couples Therapy sans the other half of her "couple," Farrah is trying to make money off her porn private home sex tape filmed for the sole purpose of promoting her future self-esteem…because Backdoor Teen Mom clearly wasn't filmed on a set…with a production crew…and a porn star. You won't believe the latest gossip!  Or maybe you will…

30th Annual PaleyFest - 'The New Normal'

Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is strapping on her Louboutins and doing a little ballroom dancing, y'all!   Dancing with the Stars just released the names of season 18's contestants and NeNe's name is on the list! 

NeNe is paired up and ready to get her own twirl on with pro dancer Tony Dovolani. If you'll recall, poor Tony was stuck with Kate Gosselin during her spin around the ballroom back in season 10.

Melissa will be bringing you the full cast lineup, including who their pro partners are later today – with photos and more details on what to expect this season!

southern charm thomas ravenel

I've never had more of a conflicting feeling when recapping a new show.  On one hand, I couldn't wait for the train wreck that is Bravo's Southern Charm. On the other hand, it's a train wreck that's filmed in my backyard of Charleston, South Carolina. Okay, so maybe it's not technically my backyard because I am certainly not living South of Broad (anymore…I did rent a carriage house for two years in law school that was in the exclusive area blocks from the Battery, but it didn't have central air or any form of heat which made it less hoity-toity!), but this is a small town. Everywhere I went yesterday I heard people talking about the show with equal parts disgust and intrigue…which is exactly how I approached it! I do have to applaud Bravo for finally making dudes look like total d-bags instead of focusing on women who eat, sleep, and breathe drama.

And so it begins. In the opening montage, I see my office and my church. It's surreal, but I have a feeling it's something I'm going to have to get used to as the season progresses. I apologize in advance for being all "fan girl" over the city…not the participants in this debacle! Thomas Ravenel, the state's former treasurer, is just ridiculous. I'm going to have the hardest time not being horribly snarky when it comes to T-Rav. I once saw him making out at an oyster bar, and it was sloppy. Then he went to jail. As he's being introduced, co-star Whitney Sudler-Smith (who is also listed as an executive producer on the show…really, Andy Cohen?) does a spot-on interpretation of the name-dropping Southerner. T-Rav opens by reinventing himself on a radio show. Good times.

The lucky few have been chosen! 

Four select ladies from various Real Housewives franchises banded together to film a bit for the upcoming Bravo Upfronts. The Upfronts is when Bravo dangles its most popular shows to hype the upcoming seasons. Not being seen at the Upfronts probably means you won't be seen on TV. Unless of course you're select members of Real Housewives of New York. Case in point: Sonja Morgan

During last year's Upfronts Sonja was in a contract dispute with the network and was a no show – mainly because she was rumored to be uninvited

It looks like someone's ego needed a slight reality check last night after the Oscars.  This latest blind item reveals someone who needed to be knocked down a few pegs. 

The gossip: 

Lots of celebrities attended Oscar parties yesterday. Oscar winners and nominees prefer the big parties like the the Vanity Fair Party or The Governors Ball, while music types gravitate more towards the Elton John Party or the Madonna Party.  Among the party guests yesterday was a well-known Reality Star.

While some of the lesser celebrities were happy to meet her and get their photo taken with her, some of the bigger celebrities gave her a wide berth. Two of them were a Singer and an Actress – who are friendly in real life – who were chatting on one side of the room with a few other people.

“The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” season 4 and “Vanderpump Rules” season 2 Cross-over premiere

Where would the Real Housewives franchise be without twitter? Particularly Brandi Glanville who has created a whole best-selling book career surrounding her inability to spell or censor. 

Well now Lisa Vanderpump wants to get in on the fun! Following last week's Scary Island 2.0 adventure in Puerto Rico where the ladies cornered Lisa at the beach, she's been retweeting and tweeting all about being victim numero uno (I hope Brandi's OK with my using a bit of Spanish there!).
