Star magazine is reporting that Carla has decided to hold off on her divorce to her ex-con husband Joseph Ferragamo in favor of reuniting with him!
Carla herself confirms the news to the mag. “I didn’t like him much before,” admits Carla. “But now I’m beginning to like him again.” If you recall, Carla had decided to divorce Joseph on the show while he was incarcerated citing they already had marital issues before he went to prison.
Joseph, who has 8-year-old twins with Carla, was however recently released from a Brooklyn halfway house after serving six years in prison for stock fraud.
“Carla has been gracious and given me another chance,” he tells Star, while Carla adds: “The hope is to hold this family together. We will be OK.”
Carla reuniting with Joseph isn’t much of a surprise. It was pretty clear on the show that she still had feelings for him, despite having a boyfriend, as she would always perk up whenever he called from prison. Good luck to the two.
And as we reported months ago, VH1 renewed Mob Wives for a second season and Carla just tweeted moments ago that it will premiere in January! “Coming back in Jan…Get ready!” she wrote. Can’t wait!

The hotness known as Maksim or is it ‘Mad Maks’ rather blew a fuse during the live competition last night following some harsh criticism by Len. After dancing a sexy rumba with his partner/soccer player Hope Solo, Len stated it was Hope’s “worst dance of the season.”
“I always feel like there is so much there, and for some reason it hasn’t come out,” stated Len, 67. “This is your worst dance of the season in my opinion.”
Maksim, 31, made it clear he did not agree with Len’s comments which promtped Len to tell him: “I’ve been in this business for 50 years.” Maksim was less than impressed as he promptly retorted: “Then maybe it’s time to go!”
In fact judge Carrie Ann Inabahad to step in as she scolded Maks by telling him, “Don’t be disrespectful like that!”
After receiving a low score of 20 from the judges (Chaz Bono was the only contestant to score lower with a score of 19), Maksim was unapologetic backstage! “With all due respect, this is my show. I help make it what it is,” said Maks to host Brooke Burke Charvet, leading to a slightly awkward moment.
As for Maks, the ballroom seems to be split as some of his pro dancers supported his opinion while others made it clear they did not agree with his stance.
Lacey Schwimmer agreed: “They always have their favorites, and this season it’s completely clear who they are. I won’t name names, but we are not one of them,” she said. “I’m actually proud of what Maks said. A lot of us don’t get the chance to stand up for us and our partners.”
Karina Smirnoff, who also happens to be Maksim’s ex-fiance, did not share his point of view. Karina told E! News, “We danced right after Maks so I just wanted to make sure that the judges made sure that we didn’t concur with Maks’ opinion…He needs a hug.”
Hope stated she was “so grateful” that Maks defended her while Maks has no regrets about his outburst. Maks said “I’m extremely proud of her. This is the first time she came out and she did exactly what she planned and there was no stress and no tension and it was a great performance. And I really liked dancing with her tonight. And to get comments that was the opposite of what it was, it wasn’t even upsetting, it was more like, ‘I have had enough!’ You have an opinion. I also have an opinion…The judges will say, ‘Hey, this is show business, this is supposed to be fun.’ Well, I had fun tonight.”
Morgan, 38, was arrested last December in his hometown of Plano, TX after undercover investigators discovered file transfers from his computer that allegedly featured images and videos of children, from toddler-aged on, engaged in sexual acts. Morgan also attempted to share these files.
When Plano police officers searched his residence and showed Morgan the incriminating images he admitted he had viewed the images and signed and dated them to indicate he agreed with the police. He was taken into custody and released on $10,000 bail with a stipulation that he have no computer access without monitoring software.
Earlier this month Morgan was indicted on three felony counts of possession with intent to promote child pornography and faces up to 10-years in prison if convicted. He is scheduled to go before a judge on Oct 27th.
Prior to this incident, Morgan was employed as the Executive Pastry Chef at The Ritz-Carlton, Dallas, but he has since been let go. “He is no longer employed here,” a marketing manager for the company informed the NY Daily News. Bravo has not released any statements related to the matter.
Morgan starred in the first season of Top Chef: Just Desserts in late 2010 and was known for intense, often volatile demeanor. He is also the father to a young son and is reportedly engaged, according to his Facebook page.
On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New JerseyI breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!
The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!

Despite being photographed looking chummy with Matt, 29, both in Texas and California, Taylor, 40, denies there is anything romantic going on. “I am NOT dating anyone from anywhere! Stop the rumors! I am trying to heal with my daughter,” she tweeted. Sources however insist the two have a “friends with benefits” relationship going on.
And in an interview with Access Hollywood, Taylor opened up about finally moving on with her life 2 months after her estranged husband Russell Armstrong took his own life.
“Day by day things are getting easier,” Taylor revealed, adding that she plans to make one of her first major appearances since the August tragedy during a New Year’s Eve Ciroc/Bravo event. “It was something that I had decided to do a while before the tragedy occurred,” Taylor explained. “I wanted to honor that commitment; it was important to me.”
“I do have to get on with my life at some point,” continued Taylor. “At that point, it will have been quite some time. I feel like New Year’s Eve is a time for new beginnings, and a time to set goals for the future. I think that’s a good landmark for me.”
For the time being, Taylor continues to work to raise awareness for domestic violence victims. She alleges Russell was physically abusive to her.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHOBH. On the 8th episode of the season titled ‘The Opposite of Relaxation,’ Adrienne hosts a spa get-together at her home, but it’s far from a bubbly affair when twisted sisters Kim and Kyle continue to steam over Brandi’s game-night antics.
Following the cancellation of their wedding last year which was followed by Matt’s arrest for domestic violence (the charges were eventually dropped), the Basketball Wives LA stars have decided to end their relationship and engagement.
Matt confirms the split in a statement released to the LA Times. “I’d like to address the rumors surrounding mine and Gloria’s relationship,” Matt’s statement read. “We have reached the difficult decision of ending our relationship and will be going our separate ways at this time. We will work together to raise our sons and wish each other only the best.”
Matt and Gloria have two kids together — 2-year-old twins Carter Kelly and Isiah Michael. The LA Times also adds that it’s unclear on whether the former couple will be dividing their assets, which includes their Palos Verdes home.
There were signs that this breakup was coming as just weeks ago Gloria admitted her relationship was not perfect, even revealing the two had been in couple’s counseling.
And just last week, a fan tweeted to Matt that he should marry Gloria or else someone else will. Matt responded: “He can have her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Yikes.
Gloria has yet to comment on the split though she did retweet this on Saturday: “If someone is dumb enough to walk away, be smart enough to let them go. Your destiny is never tied to anyone who leaves you.”
A new episode of Basketball Wives LA airs tonight on VH1 at 8/7c.

Kim Kardashian, the really real reality and sextape star is moving to the big screen!
According to a new report by Deadline, Kimmie will star in Tyler Perry’s new film The Marriage Counselor! Kinda ironic, considering her own marital woes!
Filming for the flick begins next week in Atlanta and Kim will play the role of Ava, a co-worker and friend to the main character, who “helps her friend gain new confidence with a big city makeover among other things.”
This will be Kim’s third attempt at the big screen – the first two attempts was so completely unmemorable I didn’t even know they happened!
In other news, Kim also took to Las Vegas this weekend to celebrate her 31st birthday the only way she knows how! How you ask? Just by getting paid to host her own birthday party at a club! According to reports that came out last year, Kimmie commands up to $250,000 for each of her paid club appearances.
The HollywoodLife blog is however reporting Kimmie might be regretting this latest paid gig as she reportedly got booed at her own birthday party!
The blog states that Kimmie, who held her party at Marquee Nightclub at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Oct. 22, was booed after she was introduced!
In fact, Kim’s sister Khloe Kardashian, who was also in attendance, reportedly tried to calm the crowd down but unfortunately the rowdy crowd only got louder when Khloe took the mike. Ouch!

ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT KIM’S BUDDING FILM CAREER OR HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF HER? THOUGHTS ON KIMMIE GETTING BOOED?
Former Real Housewives of New Jerseystar Dina Manzois speaking out once again, for the last time according to her, about the recent drama on the show. In a blog posted on her personal website on Sunday night, Dina appears to be taking sides and hint: it ain’t her sister’s.
Dina, found herself the topic of conversation on part II of the RHONJ reunion when her fake BFF Teresa Giudicemade certain to bring up her rift with her sister Caroline Manzo.
On the reunion show, Caroline blamed Teresa for coming between her and Dina. “[Dina] was led to believe a lot of things that are not true. She has a good friend that likes to talk and she says things to her that aren’t true against me and Jacqueline [Laurita],” Caroline stated while looking directly at Teresa. “[Dina] claims I never supported her, and Teresa’s a big part of it. When you get into this world, the fame, your mind isn’t right. You drink the Kool-Aid.”
In her blog, Dina tries to come off as neutral though it’s pretty clear where she stands when she refutes Caroline’s claims that Teresa is to blame for their feud and even strongly insinuates that Caroline, Jacqueline Laurita, and their costars have been ganging up on Teresa.
Dina also confirmed what our sources told us weeks ago which is that she and Teresa are no longer close these days, and are pretty much using each other for press and publicity. Melissa Gorgaconfirmed the same on the reunion last night when she stated Dina and Teresa went 6 months without speaking.
Below Dina reveals she rekindled her friendship with Teresa after Teresa came crying to her following a confrontation with Caroline and Jacqueline during season 4 filming. Dina also points out that Teresa supports all of her charity and TV endeavors… Unlike Caroline?
“It wasn’t until VERY recently that Teresa showed up at my doorstep in tears…apparently Caroline & Jacqueline had a sit down with her on camera (for season 4) and she felt attacked. All I did was console a friend who was obviously shaken. I felt bad for her..even though I had distanced myself from her a bit I was still her friend and she needed me. I did miss my God daughter and the rest of her girls and I’m not proud to say that in staying away from her I had stayed away from them too. Within a few weeks I went to Teresa’s house to spend Audriana’s 2nd birthday with Teresa and her family. No camera’s, no drama just a nice family night the way things used to be…Teresa has been nothing but supportive of Project Ladybug through the years and is extremely supportive of my new show on HGTV. She tweets about it all the time AND watches when she can as a friend should.”
Dina goes on to confirm something else our source told us, which is that she did indeed film with Teresa for the upcoming 4th season despite her claims of wanting nothing to do with the show and all the drama it brings. But get this, Dina claims she filmed with Teresa by accident. Riiiight.
“Teresa then asked me to come to the launch of a new product that’s very important to her. I said yes of course but when I heard camera’s were going to be there I got a bit afraid. I had not attended any other events that were being filmed just to stay away from any potential drama that might go down. I wasn’t invited to any of them either but that’s besides the point lol. Anyway..I was so relieved when I saw on my schedule that I had an HGTV shoot that day and I would have to go late. I thought for sure the camera’s would be gone by then BUT they were not… Teresa and I briefly spoke about her broken relationship with her brother on camera. I gave her my best advice and told her to focus on all the good in her life and if her brother is meant to be a part of her life again he will be one day.”
When it comes to Teresa’s diss of her sister Caroline in her cookbook, Dina claims Teresa only meant it as a joke -
“She mentioned the drama with her and Caroline and I told her that if this is all about a joke in a book (and she assured me it was) that’s not enough for me to hate the mother of my God daughter and a friend of 15 years. Was it necessary to write that stuff in her book? probably not but I don’t think it was written with malice either. We are all guilty of joking a little too much now & then…”
As for her strained relationship with not only Caroline, but also Caroline’s kids, Dina states -
“I feel bad that my relationship with my sister and her family is strained, but I can assure you that one day it will be back to the way it was. I don’t like fighting, I don’t like drama, I don’t like confrontation, I don’t agree with ganging up on someone (one of the other reasons why I left season 2) and I don’t need to share anymore than that. I am not on this show anymore, I didn’t sign on for opening up every aspect of my life to the world for the rest of my life when I signed that Bravo contract.”
Our source insists to us that Dina has called Teresa a troublemaker on more than one occasion but refuses to let go of her friendship with Teresa due to all the press and publicity she gets from Teresa attending her events. In fact, Dina has privately mentioned that she hopes Teresa picks her Lady Bug charity as her official charity during her upcoming stint on Celebrity Apprentice.
And I must say I find it extremely ironic that Dina’s (who claims to be all about peace and no drama) only friend on the show is none other than Teresa Giudice! Let that sink in for a minute!
