It’s all about the Jersey Shore ladies today. Snooki is headed to court, Sammi ditches the extensions and talks Jersey and JWoww launches a bikini line to go with her new body!

It’s another Jersey Shore lawsuit and this time Snooki is being sued. Uh-ho! The pint-sized poufflette has been slapped with a lawsuit for $7M. The NY Post is reporting that the recently svelte Snooks has been countersued by licensing company SRG Ventures. Snooki claims she saves her money — and it’s a good thing just in case she has to pay up!

Last year, Snooki partnered with SRG Ventures company to launch a line of Snooki merchandise — because that’s just what everyone wants — but filed a suit against the company in October to end her contract claiming SRG did not fulfill contractual obligations to net her enough money or branding partnerships.

SRG retaliated and filed a mult-million dollar counterclaim against both Snooki and her management company, Neon Entertainment (yes, I know — two things that go together like bread and butter: Neon and Snooki. SRG’s counterclaim accuses Le Snooki of sabotaging the deal by negotiating with other brands “behind SRG’s back” and not following up sufficiently on development deals they arranged, such as: Snooki-school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie.

Snooki’s rep calls these claims ridiculous, stating: “Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG’s version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court.” We shall see how this all hashes out. Maybe they should all go get drunk at The Shore and work things out the Jersey-way!

Moving along to other Jersey ladies, Sammi has been the subject of a Jane MakeUnder! The mag straightened her hair, scrubbed her face, exfoliated the fake tan away, put her in some clothes that cover her lady bits and voila! Classy! Photos of a de-Jersified Sammi are below.

While she was getting her Jersey Shore image washed away, Sammi talked to the mag about the new season and how things are going in her life. Thankfully she is still Ronnie-free! Sammi claims she is “nervous” about the upcoming season, but “excited” and reveals that she is actually closest to cast mate Deena Cortese.

“Deena’s actually my best friend on the show and outside of the show, we hang out all the time, we talk all the time,” Sammi reveals. “She balances me out. She’s loud, crazy and extremely positive and fun and I’m more calm and collected so we kinda balance each other out.”

As for who she doesn’t get along with, the answer is very clear: The Situation! “I just don’t get along with him at all; he’s crazy,” Sammi explains. “Mike’s the troublemaker in the house and I think he loves it. He loves to stir up the drama, that’s just who he is.” But despite their tumultuous relationship he still has a place in Sammi’s heart. “He’s a part of my family, he’ll always be a part of my family… but he’s like that brother that you just never really wanted.”

As for her relationship status, Sammi is definitely still single! “Right now I’m single,” she shares. “Ronnie’s cool. We’re really good friends, I’ll always love him, but I’m working on myself and my career and doing what’s best for me.” Good for you, Sammi! Stay strong, but not steroid strong!

Surprisingly, this season their relationship was pretty low-key. “You’re not gonna see too much drama with the relationship because there barely was any,” Sammi relays. How boring!

Sammi also dishes on The Situation’s supposed financial situation and his situation with Snooki! “I have no idea what even goes on with the Nicole and Mike drama,” Sammi confesses. “For some reason, I don’t know, I feel like something did happen between them. Nobody knows because they have their own issues and beef with each other in Italy and that definitely falls out and carries over in Seaside, so I mean, I don’t know what really went on with them but they used to be best friends and when we go back to Seaside it’s just madness.”

For the upcoming season, Sammi says expect the usual! “The whole Mike and Nicole drama thing is definitely gonna happen again, and then the whole Nicole and Jionni thing, but that’s really it. In Seaside we really got along — you see less drama with me. Of course, there’s gonna be hookups, partying … the whole nine yards.”

You can read the rest of the interview at xojane.com; it’s a good read and she discusses her life away from the shore, what she thinks of her other castmates as well as her beauty routine!

Finally, JWoww has released the sun worshipper’s dream bikini line! Using her public persona to confront the important things to a Jersey Shore girl, JWoww has partnered with Perfect Tan to release the Perfect Tan Strapless Stay-Put Bikini. That’s right — no tan lines girls! Never again worry about sitting up unexpectedly while sunbathing only to have your boobies exposed to the world. Thank goodness Jenni has offered a classy solution to a very important sun bathing dilemma!

Photos of her Perfect Tan Strapless Bikinis are below. I have to say, pretty hot if you’re into that sort of thing! The line is available in February 2012. Just in time for Jersey Shore’s fifth season!

Judi Jai mugshot

Proving that she’s just as cray in real life as she is on TV, Bad Girls Club New Orleans star Judith Jackson a.k.a. Judi Jai is now wanted by the police!

According to TMZ, the drama with Judi began last month on November 9 when cops pulled Judi over for driving erratically. She failed a sobriety test and then placed under arrest for suspicion of a DUI.

So this is when things get a little cra-cra folks! See, instead of simply allowing herself to be arrested, Judi decided to climb out of the squad car and run down the street while the police were searching her car.

According to the Illinois arrest report, cops found Judi hiding  in a nearby home and ended up taking her to the police station where she was booked on three charges — DUI, resisting arrest, and theft. The theft charges were a result of Judi attempting to run away with the cops’ handcuffs. Wowzers.

Oh, but it gets even worse as Judi was scheduled to appear in court on Monday but failed to show up. This led to a bench warrant being issued for her arrest.

Why did Judi miss her court date you ask? Oh, she tells TMZ she had more important things to do a.k.a. she had to host an out of town event! However, Judi states she plans to take care of that minor warrant arrest issue asap.

Judi can currently be seen Monday nights on the 3rd season of Oxygen’s Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JUDI’S ACTIONS? STUPID OR VERY STUPID?

On this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills viewers saw the unraveling of Taylor Armstrong‘s relationship with her late husband Russell Armstrong as they were asked to leave Kyle Richard‘s White Party for sending intimidating emails to castmate Camille Grammer.

Camille is speaking out on her Bravo blog about her confusion related to the incident, why she felt the need to contact her lawyers and admitting she still doesn’t know what to believe when it comes to Taylor and Russell! Camille begins by describing that she was looking forward to attending the party and despite the recent friction with Taylor, she “didn’t have any concerns about seeing everyone, even though obviously things were going on.”

Unfortunately things took a turn for the nasty when she opened her Inbox! “Russell had emailed me about 2:30 am the night of Pandora‘s bachelorette party. I first showed Adrienne [Maloof] the email. She immediately came to my defense and questioned Russell’s right to send me an email of that nature.”

“At the party I was in the backyard with Brandi [Glanville] and my girlfriend Dedra talking to the guests. Until I saw this episode, I didn’t know exactly what the conversation was. It was difficult to watch it go down.”

“Watching the episode and what the girls were saying, it was apparent at that point all of us were so confused,” Camille continues. “I was upset because friends don’t sue friends. Taylor had told all of us her story, so some of the other Housewives were concerned that they would also receive emails like I did.”

“I didn’t want to alienate Taylor and her husband — but at that time, it wasn’t in my control,” Camille explains. “I had called Taylor several times before the email to apologize. However, after I received the email, my only course of action was just to get in touch with my lawyers and follow their advice, which was essentially to stay clear of Taylor and Russell.”

“It was such an unfortunate situation all around. You can tell it was a confusing time for all of us, We’re a group of friends that all want to support each other. Then, all of a sudden, you see divisions in the group, which are disappointing. Like any close knit group, we all want to help each other in the most difficult of real life situations, yet we might not all agree how.”

“I don’t think anybody felt good afterwards. For me, I was still as confused and disappointed as when I had gotten that email. I still wasn’t sure about Taylor’s true situation with all that was happening,” Camille concluded.

Speaking of Taylor, last Friday she attended a court hearing related to the lawsuit against her from MMRGlobal. MMRGlobal is seeking damages against Taylor for her involvement in alleged investor fraud, orchestrated while Russell was a shareholder and board member for the company. Russell was subsequently removed from the board of directors for misappropriating investor monies.

In an attempt to recover some of these assets, MMRGlobal decided to go ahead with their suit against Taylor, despite Russell’s death, because they believe some of those missing investor monies are being held in an off-shore Cook Island Trust started by the Armstrongs in 2002. Reality Tea will be bringing you more details on the case as they unveil. This was a preliminary hearing against Taylor and no decision has been made as to the course of action.

Finally some good (well, better) news related to the RHOBH ladies — apparently Kim Richards is thriving in rehab! Kim’s ex-husband from her first marriage, supermarket heir Monty Brinson spoke to Life & Style and said Kim is “the happiest she’s been in a long time.” A photo of Monty and Kim at their 80′s wedding is below!

Despite their divorce over twenty-years ago, Monty and Kim remained “best friends” and he has been in touch with her during her stay in a rehab facility. Monty is the father of Kim’s eldest daughter, Brooke. “Kim wasn’t happy with her life,” Monty says. “She wanted to seek help so she could get better for herself, her children and her family.”

Monty says Kim’s decision to seek help was triggered by Russell’s suicide, which was a “wake-up call for Kim,” adding that “all the castmates realized just how precious life is.”

Monty believes that Kim is very serious about recovery and is positive that rehab will truly work for Kim this time, as she is taking full responsibility for her actions related to addiction. “She’s ready to start a new life when she gets out.”

No word if Kim’s boyfriend (or ex-boyfriend) Ken Blumenfeld is still in the picture and supporting her through this time. Recent reports have stated Kim moved out of the house they shared prior to entering rehab and they are no longer together.

Best of luck to Kim. We are all hopeful she gets the help she needs and is able to get her life back on track and in a positive direction!

THOUGHTS ON CAMILLE’S BLOG? WAS CAMILLE RIGHT TO GET HER LAWYERS INVOLVED? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TAYLOR’S LAWSUIT: DO YOU BELIEVE SHE AND RUSSELL WERE LIABLE? THOUGHTS ON MONTY’S INTERVIEW?

Uh oh! Is pimpmomager Kris Jenner about to get the boot from her favorite famous for no reason daughter?

According to a report by Star Magazine, that might be the case! Star magazine is reporting that there are rumblings that Kim Kardashian is getting ready to fire her momager!

The reason? Since the huge media backlash that occurred following her disastrous 72-day marriage, a source reveals, “She’s having serious doubts about keeping her mom as her manager. She thinks Kris has been giving her bad advice and she blames all of this backlash on her.” Ouch!

Even more telling, Kim met up with Hollywood manager Ray Manzella on Dec. 1 at a cafe in Pacisif Palisades to discuss potentially bringing him on to work for her. In fact, Ray confirmed to Star that he would like to take Kim on as a client while also admitting he’s been having meetings with people who are involved with Kim’s company.

Another source, however, states that if Kim does decide to bring Ray on board she still plans to keep Kris in some capacity as a figure head. “Kris will be working together with Ray on Kim’s projects,” explains an insider. “Kim hasn’t fired Kris as her managed yet.”

Meanwhile, the barrage of bad publicity continues for the famewhoring family. The Kardashians grace the latest cover of Star magazine (to be released on Friday) under the heading “Kardashian Sweatshop Scandal – Family’s Fashion Empire Makes Millions From Child Labor.”

According to Star, the Kardashian family are selling and endorsing fashion products manufactured in foreign sweatshops, where workers as young as sixteen years old are abused and virtually imprisoned.

“The Kardashians are in bed with some pretty bad people,” Charles Kernaghan, the executive director of the Institute for Global Labour and Human Rights, tells Star. “Not only are celebrities like the Kardashians taking advantage of these workers, they are holding hands with a government that spits on democracy and women’s rights.”

Several of the Kardashian brands are said to be involved with the “slave labor.” These include items in the family’s high-end K-Dash by Kardashian label and the Kris Jenner Kollection — which is sold on QVC —in addition to ShoeDazzle, which was co-founded by Kim and endorsed by her. The report states all of the mentioned brands are manufactured in areas of China where government regulations are often ignored and workers are subject to inhumane conditions.

Li Qiang, the executive director of China Labor Watch, is now urging the greedy Kardashian family to take a stand and to stop turning a blind eye to human rights abuses. “People like the Kardashians are producing their products in China because they will get more profit, since the labor cost is so low compared to the United States and other countries,” he tells Star.

In addition to underage labor, the condition of the workshops is compared to being “like minimum-security prisons.” The workers, who earn a measly $1 per hour, are helping add to the $65 million a year fortune of the Kardashians by living in “squalid factory-run dormitories filled with the stench of sewage while toiling up to 84 hours during seven-day work weeks.”

Wowzers. The Kardashians are, however, of course denying they knew anything about this. “This is the first we are hearing about it and take it very seriously as we would never condone this,” their rep Jill Fritzo told Radaronline on behalf of the Kardashians. “We are presently investigating the situation.” You can read more about this in the latest issue on Star!

Moving on to a lighter topic as Kris Humphries has finally been picked up by an NBA team! Even better for Kimmie’s husband of 2 months, he was re-signed by his former team — the New Jersey Nets. According to reports, Kris signed a one year contract with Nets, with ESPN reporting the deal is worth close to $8 million! Not too shabby.

Finally, after releasing photos from their Christmas Card this year, the Kardashians need more attention and have now released some heavily photoshopped behind the scenes pics! Those are below!

Merry New Jersmas! In today’s Real Housewives of New Jersey news, Joe Giudice has been indicted! Despite the rumors that Juicy was able to get off the hook for using a fraudulently obtained driver’s license by ratting out a DMV employee, Joe was indicted by a Passaic Country Grand jury this Tuesday!

Earlier this week the Giudices had some good news when they were able to withdraw their bankruptcy petition and avoid bankruptcy fraud charges, but alas with the good often comes the bad.

According to the NorthJersey.com, Joe was charged with one count wrongfully using identifying information of another and one count impersonation when in 2010 he used his brother Pietro (Pete) Giudice‘s information — including his marriage and birth certificates to fraudulently get a license at the Patterson DMV. If you recall, Juicy, the stellar citizen that he is, initially had his license suspended after he was arrested for a DUI in January 2010. That arrest was included in Season 2 of RHONJ.

Juicy was caught after his brother Pete was pulled over in a routine traffic stop last March and according to Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia M. Valdes, when authorities ran Pete’s license the search returned Pete’s information with Joe’s photo! This caused a red flag for officers, as Joe’s license was and still is suspended, and the Financial Crimes Unit opened an investigation. Joe has a long history of driving related issues — his license has been suspended NINE times over the years.

During their investigation the Motor Vehicle Commission, along with the police, discovered that Juicy had gotten the license fraudulently using his brother’s identification documents. Joe was arrested in March, 2011. A copy of his mugshot is below.

As a result of Joe’s actions he faces up to 10 years in prison for wrongfully using identifying information and a maximum of another 18-months for the impersonation charge. Joe has not been sentenced for his crimes yet, and interestingly it does not appear that his brother faces charges related to Joe’s impersonation. Reality Tea will keep you posted on the updates related to this matter.

As for Teresa Giudice, she has yet to comment on her husband’s indictment, and all of her cast mates seem to be keeping quiet as well.  Teresa did what she does best — distracted herself from the bad news by putting on a happy face and releasing her family Christmas Cards.  The cards feature her four daughters, Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana dressed as very cute, yet mischievous elves. You can view the cards below.

In other RHONJ husbands who do wrong news, Jacqueline Laurita is defending her husband Chris Laurita to fans after he was slapped with a lawsuit for stealing the blk. water concept, in addition to misappropriation of the trademark and breach of contract.

It all started with Twitter — which seems to be where most of Jac’s problems begin — when she tweeted: “This months “Hit List” in Beverage World magazine. One of the most innovative products! BLK! …..”

Sadly, Jacqueline made this tweet after it was reported that her husband, along with Albie and Chrsitopher Manzo, were served with the suit. A follower called Jacqueline out, tweeting: “I don’t think I would be bragging about something my husband stole.” Burn! And Jacqueline immediately DM (Direct Messaged) the Tweeter with the following information: “He didn’t steal anything. I guess you’ll soon find that out. Don’t be so ignorant.”

The Twitter user in question, Jeanne Dorsey, turned this information over to AllAboutTRH, who immediately gave readers the scoop. Dang, someone needs to deactivate Jackie’s Twitter account. Chris? Andy Cohen? Caroline? Are you listening out there? Get this woman off Twitter!!

THOUGHTS ON JOE’S INDICTMENT? DO YOU BELIEVE HE WILL SERVE TIME? SHOULD HE? THOUGHTS ON THE CHRISTMAS CARDS: RIDICULOUS, TACKY, OR CUTE? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE HAPPENED WITH BLK. WATER – STOLEN OR A FRIVOLOUS LAWSUIT?

Last night’s Teen Mom 2 doubled the depressing. Jenelle Evans and Kailyn Lowry both battled issues with their distant mothers, while Leah Messer-Simms and Chelsea Houska spent twice the time in the hospital.

Leah is taking time off work to spend time with the twins. She can’t get over her anxiety about Ali’s impending brain MRI. Leah tells her friend that while her daughters are her world, her life would be very different — and probably much easier — if she had waited to have children.

Kailyn is signing the lease on Isaac’s and her new digs. She found the apartment through a non-profit group and she’s keeping the news secret from her mother after getting an ugly note from her mom’s live-in boyfriend. Kailyn is excited to share the news with her boyfriend Jordan and has already decided to turn the laundry room into a small nursery for Isaac since she doesn’t have a washer and dryer.  Jordan seems excited about the prospect of being able to visit Kailyn and Isaac without having to deal with her mom or Jo… although it’s hard to tell, as he’s almost as monotone as his girlfriend.

In today’s not so shocking news, former Real Housewives of DC star Michaele Salahi is accusing her estranged husband, Tareq Salahi, of physical violence in a new lawsuit.

In the suit, uncovered by TMZ, Michaele wants a judge to grant her a separation asap as she states Tareq is a violent control freak who uses psychotic scare tactics and physical violence to control her.

Michaele, who famously ran away with Journey guitarist Neal Schon back in September, says she did so to get away from Tareq because she feared for her safety.

As for the physical abuse claims, Michaele says the final straw came on September 11 when she returned home a few hours late from running an errand. She alleges Tareq waited for her in the dark, in the basement and told her she needed to learn a lesson. Michaele ended up fleeing with Neal two days later.

Tareq is of course denying the allegations, telling TMZ that Michaele is a “chronic liar” while calling her allegations “absurd.”  Tareq insists he truly loved her and did all he could to support her during their marriage.

Last month, Tareq filed a $17 million lawsuit against Michaele and Neal  for what he called “publicly humiliating him with their torrid affair.”
