Andy Cohen

The Bravo network has finally confirmed what we’ve all known for weeks, which is that Danielle Staub is leaving the Real Housewives of New Jersey “forever.”

The confirmation came last night from Andy Cohen via a blog on Bravo. “The reunion was Danielle’s last appearance on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. We thought the hugs were a great way to end two seasons of bitterness between the women,” said Andy.

No reasons were given for Danielle’s departure from the show, though reports state that Danielle’s co-stars gave Bravo an ultimatum. As for Danielle, she is currently trying to get her own spin-off show. No word yet on whether any network has picked it up.

In other news, could Teresa Giudice be the next housewife to leave the New Jersey franchise?

According to a story by the NYPost today, that answer is very likely. The Post reports Teresa herself a friend of Teresa’s tells them “Teresa is done with Bravo, I don’t think any amount of money will make her come back.”

The reason? Apparently Teresa made a bad deal with Bravo over royalties from her cookbook, “Skinny Italian.” A source tells the Post Teresa is the only housewife in the franchise to give Bravo 10 percent of royalties from her book sales. In exchange, Bravo was suppose to make up the difference by promoting her book on the show.

She reportedly filmed several scenes with the book such as cooking and testing recipes, but as we all know, none of that footage was aired. The only brief mention of Teresa’s book came during the finale episode.

The NYPost story also confirms that Teresa hates her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, who Bravo has reportedly signed on for season 3.

Plus, following the news that Teresa and her husband Joe Giudice are being accused of fraud and hiding assets in their bankruptcy filing, Popeater is reporting today that Teresa is “terrified” of going to prison and “would rather drop out of the show altogether than end up in prison because of something she lets slip on TV.”

A source also tells Popeater that Teresa would rather have Danielle back than have her sister-in-law on the show. “If Melissa does join, Teresa will quit for sure,” says the source.

UPDATE: Danielle is now speaking out on her departure from the show.  She tells UsWeekly, “I’m way too good for this… They have used me about as much as I can be used.”

“I think it’s time for me to move on and upward,” says Danielle. “I don’t see any interest for me to be attacked like that.” She adds, “I mean, what’s left for [the other castmates]? To kill me? Bravo seems to be glorifying their behavior. And I think it’s almost like telling children to behave poorly at school, ‘It’s OK.’”

Danielle however makes it clear she wants a spin-off. “I want my own show,” she says. “I want to be me now. Not me according to other people. Me…a spin-off is absolutely, positively where I’m going.”

TELL US – DO YOU WANT TERESA BACK FOR ANOTHER SEASON? WILL YOU CONTINUE TO WATCH THE SHOW WITHOUT HER?

The craziness continues tonight as part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is set to air.

So what can we expect? Well, Kim G. makes her return as she comes back for a special appearance to call Danielle out on using her and being a bad friend.

Other serious allegations are brought up in the reunion, which include the story behind Danielle and Ashley’s texting war. Last week Teresa unleashed her anger on Danielle and this week the rest of the ladies are ready to join in. Will Danielle make it through the reunion shoot or will she flee the scene again? Find out tonight at 9/8c.

In other news, last week’s reunion episode brought in a Bravo housewives best at 3.9 million viewers, making it the most watched housewives episode in the history of the Bravo network.

Back to tonight’s episode, Andy Cohen did a new interview with E! online during which he assured us the part 2 of the reunion would shock us even more than the first (Is this even possible?).

“What I’ll tell you is that Jacqueline has something of an epiphany somewhere through the taping and her epiphany is really going to surprise people,” said Andy to E!. “Two things happen that I never would expect to happen in million years. Literally, the shots of me, my mouth is on the floor.”

Interesting words from Andy. Could Jacqueline be the housewife that will reportedly leave the show forever? Guess we’ll find out tonight!

A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND PART 2 OF THE REUNION?

The super-sized Real Housewives of New Jersey part 1 reunion episode aired last night. The good news? With the exception of some of our brain cells, the show ended with no casualties.

For some odd reason, I assumed the highly promoted “fight scene” between Teresa, Danielle and innocent bystander Andy, would occur in part 2 of the reunion set to air next week, but thanks to the ape-like animal instincts of Teresa Giudice, all the drama went down within the first 20 minutes of the show!

The reunion started out with host Andy Cohen greeting each of the ladies, while issuing them phony compliments, buttering them up for the madness that is about to ensue. Andy decides to ask the ladies about that other little Jersey show aka the Jersey Shore, and Teresa, who likes to request an occasional spanking on her bottom in public, immediately lets us know she does not approve. When asked why, Teresa reveals one of the female cast members jumped into bed with a guy on the show after barely knowing him.

All was going well until Teresa decided to take a dig at Danielle 2 minutes into the show. “I think Danielle could relate to them, right Danielle? Because after a week you met Steve, you slept with him in my Shore house, in front of your kids. That was okay, right, right?” Danielle calmly refers to Teresa as insane, and Teresa retorts by calling Danielle a pig. Jacqueline chimes in, stating that Danielle’s kids heard her having sex with her ex Steve on that faithful day. More on Danielle’s kids later, as we will discover their mother’s actions is taking a toll on them.

Andy decides to ask the ladies how their kids are dealing with the notoriety of the show. Danielle immediately lets us know her kids are doing amazingly well, you know, despite the fact that their prostitution whore of a mother is on national television acting loony, and released a sex tape just a few months ago.

Danielle is accused of not congratulating Jacqueline when she had her baby boy. So she congratulates Jacqueline, who fake accepts the congrats. Dina Manzo‘s name comes up, and the big topic of last year’s reunion show is brought up, which was the accusation by the other ladies that Danielle did something very awful to Dina. Dina has since come out this year, stating in a national magazine that Danielle offered unsolicited help to her ex-husband to try to have her daughter taken away from her. But what we didn’t know is that following the publication of Dina’s interview with Life&Style magazine, Danielle had her lawyers issue a gag order to Dina, forbidding her from discussing Danielle’s role in whole issue.

“We can’t talk about it. Can’t talk about it! End, done, next,” proclaims Caroline Manzo. Danielle doesn’t yield to Caroline’s command and continues to discuss the issue. “Do not speak of my sister! Did you hear what I said? Do not speak of my sister, she is not here!” screams Caroline.

And I have nothing against Caroline, but at this point I’m trying to figure out who died and made her authority over what can and cannot be discussed. Yes, I understand she wants to defend her sister, but that sister was a part of the show this season, and because she chose not to attend the reunion doesn’t make her exempt from discussion. Caroline came off as a major bully in this scene.

Some more words are exchanged amongst the ladies, and Teresa brings up the fact that Danielle failed to acknowledge Jacqueline’s son. “Do you acknowledge your nephew?” are the words uttered by Danielle, obviously meant to get a reaction out of Teresa. “Yes of course I did,” calmly replied Teresa before giving us a delayed reaction by going into an extreme rage! “Do not bring up my family!” screamed out a very angry Teresa. “You bitch, you f*cking bitch,you piece of sh*t, you motherf*cker,” were the words of Teresa, who I found out last night is actually college educated with a marketing degree.

Andy Cohen even got a powerful shove from the angry Teresa as he tried to hold her back from Danielle, who calmly walked off the stage. Okay, yes Danielle tried to push Teresa’s buttons but Teresa’s reaction was over the top, uncalled for, and pretty much a very unnecessary sequel to last season’s table flipping. Let’s assume Danielle’s accusation is untrue, why react like a lunatic? By now, we all realize what a trouble maker and sh*t stirrer Danielle is, why give her that reaction? It seems to me that Teresa’s over the top reaction as more to do with the other issues going on in her life at the moment.

We are back from commercial break and we see Caroline, who looks a bit mortified, attempting to calm down an enraged Teresa backstage. Danielle wonders out-loud why her life and past is fair game, but she’s not allowed to bring up their dirt, which is a sorta valid point. “It’s true, she didn’t even acknowledge her nephew,” says Danielle to her new posse.

Back on stage, Andy Cohen grows some balls, albeit very little balls according to the good folks at AbsurdtoSublime, when he tells Teresa she must keep her animal rage in check! Danielle is backstage relishing in her role as a victim, while being consoled by her ever changing posse. With a hug from her rumored lesbian superstar superhero girlfriend Lori Michaels, Danielle is ready to face her foes once again.

Tonight is the highly anticipated reunion smackdown of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

The Jersey ladies are gathered together for the first time in over a year, with the exception of Dina Manzo, who exited the show mid-season because of Danielle Staub. Despite Dina’s absence, she is still the topic of conversation among the housewives and Teresa has no problem putting all of the blame on Danielle.

A video preview is below that shows the aftermath of a fight between Danielle and Teresa. It seems Danielle brings up Teresa’s family, and she decides to take out her bankruptcy humiliation frustration on her. The super-sized 1 hour and 15 minutes reunion episode airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.

You have all likely seen the previews by now which shows Teresa Giudice shoving host Andy Cohen as he tries to hold her back. Well, Teresa is now speaking out about her actions, trying to explain why she want ape nuts on Andy.

“I didn’t mean to shove Andy,” Teresa tells UsWeekly. “I love Andy.” On why she shoved him, she said: “When I’m attacked, I attack back. I don’t like to be held back or touched…Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don’t hold me back!”

Caroline Manzo gives her take on the reunion show as well, “There are no words,” she said. “Just no words. I could not compose a rational thought in my head for two days [after the taping]. It took me two days to regroup.”

There is also a rumor that has been going around for the past couple of weeks stating that Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice has been having an affair with a Jersey woman named Tara G. We received an email about this a while back, with someone telling us that everyone in the Giudices hometown is aware of this woman and the affair, including Teresa.

We didn’t publish this as there was no proof attached to the email. So, if there’s anyone out there with proof, photos, last names, facebook pages etc, Please feel free to email us the details using our site contact page or at Realitytea@yahoo.com.

TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & THE REUNION SHOW PART 1?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion

We reported two weeks ago that something major went down during the reunion show taping of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, based on the tweets from all parties involved.

Well thanks to RadarOnline and People magazine today, we can now report a physical fight occurs between the bankrupt Teresa Giudice and former prostitution whore Danielle Staub.

RadarOnline reports things got so heated between the two ladies, to the point that producers had to step in to separate them. “A fight broke out between Danielle and Teresa. It got so crazy that the producers had to get involved and break it up,” says a source.

“It got a little crazy,” another source adds. “Did anyone walk away with a black eye, no… But it definitely got to the point where I think everyone was more than holding on to their seats or being held back.”

PEOPLE magazine adds that at one point host Andy Cohen and Caroline Manzo had to intervene as Teresa got up out of her chair and started for Danielle, who was sitting across the room.

Andy Cohen calls this the best reunion show ever, adding that “you won’t believe how it starts and you won’t believe how it ends.”

Part one of the reunion airs Aug. 30 on Bravo, with part two airing on Sept. 6. Another photo from the reunion is below -

TELL US – ARE YOU TEAM TERESA OR TEAM DANIELLE?

Danielle Staub and Lori MichaelsKim Granatell aka Kim G

A lot to report on the Real Housewives of New Jersey today, and when we say a lot, we mean A LOT.

We’ll start off with Danielle Staub, who hosted a party for her 48th birthday last night at NYC’s Scores strip club. The former stripper/escort however took some time away from the pole her party to talk to the press, during which she told NBC Newyork she’s in the works of creating her own spin-off reality show.

“It will definitely be a lot more of her (gal pal Lori Michaels) and I and definitely my kids,” Danielle told the site. “There will be a lot of questions that will be answered.”

And when asked about the status of her relationship with faux girlfriend Lori, “We’re exclusively committable,” answered Danielle while holding Lori’s hand. 

The HollywoodLife is also reporting today that Danielle’s former BFF, three-faced Kim Granatell, tried to crash Danielle’s strip club party last night.

According to the site, right as Danielle was about to walk into her party, Kim G., pictured above in front of Daniele’s party last night, arrived with an entire entourage in tow even though she wasn’t invited. Danielle was reportedly blindsided and refused to walk in until Kim G. was escorted off the premises. “It took a little while but Kim finally got into her black Bentley and sped off,” says the site.


Dina Manzo

Next up is Dina Manzo, who bowed out of the Bravo hit show mid season. According to the Crushable site via Life&Style magazine, Dina did not attend the recent taping of the reunion show. Dina’s reason for being a no show? She wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle.

Teresa Giudice also talked to the mag about the reunion taping. “The reunion was crazy, exhausting and unbelievable,” Teresa tells Life & Style. Andy Cohen also chimes in saying, “It was nuts, absolutely nuts!”

Life & Style reports that taping lasted nearly 12 emotionally-draining hours.

According to a Bravo press release, the reunion will be in two parts airing August 30 and September 6. The show’s finale will air August 23.

 

Teresa Giudice Children

And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.

“They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”

Teresa also shares her plan of writing another book with the magazine, while revealing she hasn’t lost all the weight she gained during her last pregnancy. “I haven’t lost it all yet!” she says. “I still have about 10 pounds to go.

As the second season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey winds down, it seems the drama is never ending.

Danielle Staub is now speaking out on castmate Teresa Giudice’s widely publicized financial troubles, and the troubled reality star has some choice words for the bankrupt Teresa.

“I’m going to tell her what I told her before — your house is in foreclosure,” Danielle tells PEOPLE. “I wasn’t lying and you did know,” says Danielle as she references a recent episode of the show, when she accused Teresa of having a home in foreclosure.

Danielle adds that while she’s also had some problems with debt, she was never in as bad as a situation as the Giudices. “Divorce put me in debt. I didn’t lie about that. But we’re talking $100,000. We’re not talking $11 million,” she says. “I think people need to spend within their means and if you don’t know what you have, you need to communicate with your husbands.”

This follows Teresa’s appearance on The View Monday, when she claimed her husband, Joe Giudice, kept their financial problems from her.

Danielle however makes it clear that should never be an excuse. “One thing that comes with marriage is that it’s fifty-fifty,” she says. “It is your responsibility to know these things. You can’t just throw him under the bus … That’s not cool,” adding “if you have it, don’t flaunt it because it will come back and bite you.”

The Reunion – As we reported, the reunion show was taped this week on Wednesday, and it seems something big went down. Below are the few tweets those involved with the taping have since made -

BravoAndy – We are wrapped in New Jersey. WOAH. Very unexpected stuff. I am pooped. #needmakersmark

CarolineManzo – Finally home relaxing taped reunion show yesterday, busy day in NYC today. The reunion was UNBELIEVABLE.

Teresa_Giudice – Hi Tweet♥s! FINALLY finished taping the #RHONJ reunion show! All I can say is you will NOT believe what happens. How was your day? xx

JacLaurita – It was a long exhausting day.Lauren,u did a beautiful job w/my makeup.I Love u & ur Mom.I appreciate everything u did.Thank u.It’s over now.

Danielle has yet to tweet anything about the reunion and Dina twitted a lot during the day of the filming, meaning she likely did not attend the reunion taping, or if she did, she filmed a very small segment. No word yet on when the reunion show will air.

Star magazine is also reporting today that the classiness known as Danielle Staub will be hosting a birthday bash at New York City Gentleman’s Club Scores, on Tuesday, August 10.  This is in celebration of her 48th birthday, and the invitation promises Danielle will treat partygoers to a live performance of her tortured lullaby ‘Real Close.’ No word on if the former stripper/porn star will hit the pole.

We are now onto the 12th episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and while it wasn’t as good as next week’s episode will be, it was still very interesting to say the least.

There are two angles one can go with in doing this recap. One is we finally get to meet Tom Staub, the man behind the legend, you know the man who decided Danielle Staub was fit to be his wife and the mother of his children. The other angle is Teresa Giudice of course, who was one of the most searched people on the internet yesterday thanks to the news of the impending public auction of her home items, and her thirst for diamonds, you know considering this episode was taped just a few weeks after she signed off on the bankruptcy documents. Oh what the hey, I say let’s go with both angles!

The episode starts off with some precious family time with the Giudices as they do monopoly night. When Joe wasn’t busy threatening to kick one of his daughters, Teresa decides to bring up their upcoming 10th anniversary. Teresa can’t believe she and Joe have been married for 10 years because “it feels like 5.” Teresa asks the kids for anniversary gift ideas and one of their daughters suggests chocolate and flowers, but bankrupt Teresa makes it clear that’s not good enough. Joe has an even better suggestion, when he jokingly suggests the $100 luxury tax ring, before retracting it, joking saying that he couldn’t even afford that. Must say the financial jokes by Joe are very telling. Notice how they seemed to start just a few episodes ago? Teresa however makes it clear there will be no hanky panky for one month if Joe doesn’t come through, and I can’t help but wonder if Teresa can even go a week with no hanky panky from Jiucy Joe.

Danielle decides to meet up with her friend/party planner to plan a party for herself her daughter Christine‘s sweet 16. Danielle then lets us know she plans to make this a memorable party for herself Christine because she never had a birthday party “thrown to” her until she was 47-years-old. Really Danielle? Not even a party at 1? 10? 16? 18? 21? 30? 40? 45? Well since Danielle is not known to ever lie or exaggerate, I will go ahead and take her word for this.

Christine reveals her idea to donate all proceeds from her party to a charity and Dirty D decides this is a perfect moment to take credit for Christine’s idea because that’s her daughter and she gave birth to her. And I take a moment to ponder how Danielle’s daughters seem to have turned out amazing and well grounded in spite of their mother. Danielle asks Christine if she wants to invite her father and Christine answers yes. Danielle then lets us know that Tom hasn’t been the best father in the world to his daughters, and I can’t help but wonder if Danielle is being truthful about this, or just trying to paint her ex in a bad light out of vengeance, not that this is Danielle’s MO or anything.

Jacqueline and Caroline meet up and yet again Caroline is making perfect sense when she advises Jacqueline to distance herself from the three-faced Kim G. and focus on her daughter.

The Giudices and the Lauritas have a get together during which Joe, who looks rather stressed, ponders what to get his wife for their upcoming 10th anniversary. Joe mentions the 10-year gift has to be a “big one,” bankruptcy be damned. Teresa, who just signed off on bankruptcy papers to the debt of $11 mil a few weeks earlier, is then shown having a conversation with Jacqueline. “I love diamonds, diamonds and diamonds and diamonds,” says the bankrupt Teresa when asked what she wants for her anniversary by Jacqueline. And how genius are the show’s editors for choosing the oh so perfect background music for this ridiculous scene.

And it’s now that time of the show, when we get to see the hotness known as Albie Manzo. This time around, Albie is sporting a buzz cut, which might or might not be slightly taking away from his hotness, and we find out Albie has joined the police academy while waiting to get into a new law school. Must say it’s nice to see a Manzo with ambitions that go beyond the Brownstone.
