After this past episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, I am sure Napa was beyond ready to bid farewell to the crazy crew. From name calling to doing the dirty grape style, it was all just to much for me. Also, I never needed to see Joe Gorga in nasty, tight boxer briefs. Have these people no shame?
We all know the main drama occurred when Juicy Joe Giudice had some choice names for his wife Teresa while on the phone with “a business contact.” Not surprisingly, Teresa takes to her blog (and the cover of In Touch–go figure!) to share her pain.
Michael Stagliano has been a Bachelor Pad mainstay for two seasons now, winning last year’s with ex-fiance Holly Durst and starting out strong in Bachelor Pad 3. Well, all that changed Monday night when his plotting, scheming, and manipulating encountered a vindictive Chris Bukowski (who are the people that find him attractive again?) and a crazy Erica Rose!
In a new blog for Parade, Michael discusses his elimination and shockingly takes accountability for his actions. He also discusses Chris‘ potentially game damaging actions of taking Erica into the voting room with him!
Michael co-signs that everyone was on board with Chris and by default SarahNewlon being eliminated at the start of the episode following his ploy the week before to get Blakely Jones voted out.
Tyler visits his mom. Kim shares that she is considering counseling. She’s feeling “held back” from seeing Carly. She says, “I knew Carly would go and live and out of state, but I thought they [Brandon and Theresa] would be more open to letting me go see her [Carly].” Kim says she’s running out of patience. I feel for Kim, but she does realize Brandon and Theresa aren’t babysitting Carly, right?
NeNetellsIn Touch Weekly that Bryson kept it a secret from her for months and that’s why she denied reports that he had fathered a child.
“I only found out about everything because I ran into Ashley when she was more than six months along,” NeNe insists. “I said, ‘You look pregnant.’ And she said, ‘Hasn’t Bryson told you?’ But he hadn’t because he knew that I wouldn’t approve of him having a child so young.”
Another day brings another American Idol judge casting rumor. This time, we have none other than Kanye West in the running for one of the empty seats at the table.
Reportedly the big wigs contacted Kanye to see if they stood any chance of landing him, and according to TMZ, he’s intrigued. He’s not 100% sure if it’s his thing and then there’s the little issue of money. Kanye wants to be paid the same amount as Mariah Carey ($18 million for those of you who forgot that staggering figure already), if not more!
It’s not a great time to be Renee Graziano! The Mob Wives star has witnessed her father going back to prison thanks to her ex-husband, and now she’s facing quite a hefty lawsuit. Nope, it’s not a good day to be Renee…
As you all know, Renee was hoping to reconcile with her ex Hector “Junior” Pagan, but he was only getting close to her so that he get even closer to her father…while wearing a wire. Now, Renee’s father Anthony Graziano has been sentenced to nineteen months for receiving illegal debts. In true Graziano fashion, he was cracking jokes and laughing during sentencing, causing both the judge and his wife to scold him.
