“I wish I could say I can see them being friends again, but I don’t think it’s going to happen,” says messengerAlex McCord, who explains that the falling out was much worse than what we’ve been seeing on the show. “Sometimes you find things out about people that you didn’t believe and glossed over,” shares Alex. “You get to a point where you just can’t do it anymore and it blows up in your face. There’s so much going on between Jill and Bethenny. You don’t see 80 percent of it on camera.”
Interesting point of view by Alex. Also joining in the Bethenny vs Jill conversation is Jill’s new underdog BFF Countess LuAnn: “I think there’s a certain sadness to the whole situation,” she said. “I don’t know if they’ll ever be BFFs again, but I think they will be cordial to each other.”
When asked about the criticism being thrown her way regarding her new song, ‘Money Can’t Buy You Class‘ (which I unfortunately found myself humming this morning as I tried to find something), LuAnn reveals she has a tough skin. “Darling, I’m a brave adventurous soul,” she says. “That’s why I’m doing a reality show…I just hope people kind of tip their hat to me for doing it.”
LuAnn also shares that her new boyfriend, French wine distributor Jacques Azoulay, is a fan of her ‘music.’ “He thinks it’s great,” LuAnn says. “He’s very proud of me for getting out there and flying by the seat of my pants.”

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE 2ND SEASON OF NEW JERSEY? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREMIERE EPISODE?
As this season of theReal Housewives of New York City moves along, it becomes more and more obvious that Jill Zarin is the “source” who leaked this story and this story to the press. The first story is the infamous Bethenny is friendless story and the second one is the story that came out earlier this year about Alex and Simon possibly being cut from the show.
Moving right along to this week’s recap -
Bethenny – I blogged about her pregnancy leak last year and thought it was very wrong for Perez Hilton to leak the story, especially considering her age amongst other factors. I mean the woman was only 8 weeks pregnant for goodness sakes. Her reaction and Jason’s reaction seemed genuine and understandable. And a lot of people are now asking how could this have leaked to Perez? Well for one, there are usually 6 – 10 production people involved in the filming of each scene for the show, and considering Bethenny filmed her pregnancy test just weeks earlier, the possibilities of the leak are endless. Plus in Perez’s story, he claimed Bethenny was in talks with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy with them at the three month mark. My guess is someone from UsWeekly leaked that info to Perez. But I loved Jason in this episode, he seems like a stand up man, and perfect for Bethenny.
Next we see LuAnn, Sonja and Jill engage in a conversation about Bethenny and party planning, during which Jill informs us she has a google alert on herself. For some reason, I am not surprised. By the way google alerts is something that alerts you whenever a story is written about someone, a show etc. Jill, the gossip queen that she is, seems more concerned about the gossip factor than the actual news about Bethenny’s pregnancy. And you have to love her dig about LuAnn’s evite invitations not being up to par. LuAnn also informs us that Bethenny blocked her from twitter, which is a bit petty in my opinion for Bethenny to do that, if she did. Was a bit surprised about this as it doesn’t seem like Bethenny’s M.O.
We then get a brief view of new housewife Jennifer Gilbert during a meeting with Jill, and umm yeah, with Jill doing most of the talking, we will have to wait until the next episode to learn anything about Jennifer. Sonja is starting to grow on me, she seemed a bit more interesting in this episode, as she showed us there’s more to her than just talking about sex. Taking Ramona along with her to the plastic surgeon’s office was probably not necessary and just done for good tv. Her scene with her physic during ,which she got emotional when talking about her former marriage, was a however good scene. Great to see another dimension to her.
And then we have the phone call between Alex and Bethenny, during which Bethenny confirms her pregnancy news. And Bethenny informs Alex that Jill sent her an email on how to handle the rumor. Just like Jill, to want to involve herself in the “scandal” as a means to get press/publicity for herself. Anyone remember last summer when Jill started hanging out with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan, and even began speaking to the press on behalf of Jon? Enough said. Bethenny was fortunately able to see through Jill’s very transparent colors.
Bethenny then makes the error of casually informing Alex that she could tell Jill she’s done with the friendship if she sees Jill talking about the pregnancy news. Alex, who ofcourse has a score to settle with Jill couldn’t be happier to deliver the message. We then get to Ramona’s event with Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn in attendance. Jill informs us she plans on taking the high road, and will not ruin Ramona’s event like Ramona did her Kodak event. Seconds after saying this, we see Jill saying there’s no need for any more skin care lines in the world and then proceeds to trash the food at the event. Oh yeah, did I mention Ramona’s event was to promote her new skin care line? Nice to see Jill being the “bigger person” on this one.
So last year Danielle Staub was able to get a court injunction to stop her former fling Steve Zalewskifrom selling some sex footage of her, but get this, there is now another new sex tape of the 47-year-old reality star, that will soon be released according to a new report.
And this new tape is a full on explicit sex tape that shows the Real Housewives of New Jersey reality star engaging in various sexual acts with an unidentified man.
Danielle’s ex-boy toy Steve, the younger man Danielle dated during Season 1, spoke to Zap2it and said he is not the man on the new sex tape. Citing that his tape of Danielle only included a few scenes of Danielle giving him oral sex, with the remaining footage being mostly of her alone, shooting herself doing sex acts.
And what’s on this new explicit tape? According to CrabbyGoLightly.com, Danielle and her pierced you know what can be seen engaging in “some missionary, some doggy style, and some pile-driving” with the unidentified male in the 45 minute tape. The crabbygolightly site claims, “You really don’t see her partner’s face, just his condom-covered member. At least she’s practicing safe sex.”
Sex tape queen Danielle has yet to publicly comment on this new tape. The new season of the New Jersey Housewives premieres May 3 on Bravo.
In tonight’s episode, Bethenny Frankel’s pregnancy is leaked all across the internet thanks to blogger Perez Hilton, and she is forced to confront her fiancé ,Jason Hoppy, with the news. We get to see the reaction of a press-shy Jason, as well as the reaction of the other housewives. A video preview of this is below.
On the other side of town, we get some more new blood this week whenJennifer Gilbert makes her debut as a part of the group. Meanwhile, when Sonja enlists Ramona to accompany her to a plastic surgeon consultation, the ever appropriate Ramona does not hold back in grilling the doctor about his credibility. And finally tonight, we get to see the big confrontation between Jill and Alex.
Below is the preview of Bethenny telling her fiance about her pregnancy leak -
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
This recap was written on Friday evening, I then decided not to post it because it was too late in the day. Then decided on Saturday I should just scrap it all together, then decided on Sunday that I should probably post it since it’s already been written, and now it’s Monday and what the hay! So below is the recap, hope you enjoy.
We started off last night’s episode with a little TMI involving Jill Zarin and her sick dog. Moving right along to Bethenny visiting Alex, and sharing her engagement news with her.Bethenny reveals Alex is the first person she’s telling, and plans on telling all the other housewives at a later date. It’s nice to see a genuine friendship developing between Alex and Bethenny, who would have thought? Who would have guessed? That’s the great thing about the housewives’ series, you never know what’s next to come.
Next up is a get together between the single women on the show, we get to see the Countess, Kelly and new housewife Samantha from Sex & the CitySonja Morgan meet up for drinks. Interestingly enough, all three of these women married much older rich men, and all three are still holding on to their last names. Sonja does what she does best, which is to blab about sex. Kelly attempts to downplay her past relationship with male gigoloMax, which is interesting considering she spent all of last season flaunting him around. I’m still on the fence about the addition of Sonja. Perhaps its because this season has been very interesting thus far, but I’m not really seeing what she adds.When you think about it, Bethenny, Ramona, Jill, Kelly, and even Alex are all one of a kind. I mean really, have you ever come across anyone like Ramona? The answer is likely no, but Sonja doesn’t seem to have that unique factor.Anyone who’s seen an episode of Sex & the City, knows this woman is a Samantha wannabe.
And how cute and funny was Kelly’s daughter when she decided not to talk to the cameras, but rather write down what was happening. Very cute scene.
The big event of the night came towards the end of the episode at Kelly’s event for Gotham magazine.For some reason, some of the ladies (Bethenny, Kelly and Alex) decided this was the night to sport their shortest attires.Bethenny’s one liner about what the ladies had on was priceless.“This was the party evidently that we were all told to wear a square of toilet paper and make an outfit out of it. I mean I literally, I didn’t have a top on, Kelly’s vagina was hanging out. Alex’s ass cheeks. Literally, it was like a yard sale of body parts,” said Bethenny. Seriously, it must be hard for one to hate Bethenny because love her or hate her, she will make you laugh!
Though the 2nd season of the New Jersey Housewives doesn’t premiere until May 3rd, Bravo has supplied certain media outlets with the season premiere episode and Teresa’s 9 year-old daughter, Gia Giudice, is seen making racist anti-Semitic comments.
According to HollywoodLife, Gia, 9, is seen saying she’d never marry a Jewish guy and goes on to make a gesture mocking Hasidic Jews’ long, curly hair when referring to Jewish people. When Teresa was asked about her daughter’s comments during an April 20th interview, she snapped, “I can’t control what my daughter says. Kids say dumb things … what, am I going to be crucified for it?”
No, Teresa cannot control what her daughter says, but the bigger question is where did her daughter learn this language and behavior from? I think from her home and parents would be a good guess. This will likely spark a major controversy once the new season premieres.
Teresa then goes on to defend her husband, Joe Giudice, who was arrested for a DUI back in January. “He was two seconds from home and he closed his eyes for two seconds and yawned when he was turning the bend,” said Teresa. “It’s pretty sad you can’t have one drink … everybody does it. I know he was not drunk at all.”

First the OC mom lied about her relationship with new beau Eddie Judge, you can read all about that here. And now she has chosen to lie about her affiliation and usage of weight loss drug, Duzoxin.
A reader emailed us a conversation Tamra had with a friend on her facebook page, during which which she denied taking the weight loss drug, and even denied having anything to do with the company. A quick check to Tamra’s facebook two days ago showed the conversation. She seems to have now deleted it from her page. The coversation is below -
Christi – Tamra. Does Duzoxin really work? Does it make you feel like your loaded on caffeine or is it an even energy and metabolism heightner?2 hours ago · Tamra Barney I do not take it… I have nothing to do with that company
2 hours ago · Christi – Ok great. I saw the video they had posted and was thinking about ordering it if you said it worked.
about an hour ago · Christi - Do you know of something that does work? With all the weight loss/maintaining drugs out there it would be nice to know of some that actually work. Tamra Barney – be very careful taking any diet pill. have you tried a green tea fat burner? I use to take lipo 6 and it worked for me
about an hour ago ·
As you can see from the above photo, Tamra was a spokeperson for the company along with some of her fellow co-stars. Not only that, her page and personal testimonial is still up on the company’s site – at http://www.duzoxintv.com/tamra/. She gave the following testimonial below -
“As a mom, reality TV star, and a busy woman, I have tried many different products in the past to help me with my workout regimen. Nothing I have tried so far has come close to what Düzoxin has done for me. I’ve just started taking Düzoxin, and judging by how wonderful the other girls look and feel, I have a feeling I’ll be taking Düxoxin for a very long time to come. Thank you Düzoxin for making my life just a bit easier!”
It’s a wonder she and Gretchen Rossi don’t get along better, they both seem to have A LOT in common.
