Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Danielle Staub is moving forward with her music career.

RadarOnline is reporting that the part time porn star sex tape star has filmed her first music video. The video, which was shot last week, will reportedly show a different, emotional side to Danielle as it was filmed on location at a woman’s shelter in northern New Jersey.

“Danielle talked to all the women. It was a very emotional day,” a source told RadarOnline. “She was so touched she even said she was going to send a box of things to the women at the shelter that they can all use.”

The video is for Danielle’s new single called “Cry.” The plot of the video will have “an actor that plays Danielle’s love interest and she goes through the emotions of a woman in an abusive relationship,” the source explained. “These are real circumstances these women go through. In one scene, Danielle makes dinner for him and he complains and she turns to look back at him because she’s afraid he’s going to hit her and then she runs to lock herself in the bathroom.”

Danielle posted on her twitter that the video premiere will announced in the next couple of weeks.

In other NJ news, Caroline Manzo attended a NYC season-finale party for E!’s The Spin Crowd, during which she was asked what she thought of Kim Kardashian dating her sons, Albie and Christpher Manzo.

“[Albie] is only 24, but you never know,” Caroline, 49, told PEOPLE. “Christopher’s only 21, so that’s stretching it a little bit. They’re both good catches in my mind, so either one works.” Asked why her boys are good catches, the Mama Bear replied: “They’re good boys. They’re hard workers, they’re honest. We taught them from a young age how to treat a lady, how to respect a woman, how to be a good father, husband, provider, friend.”

And finally, RadarOnline reported this week that Ashley Holmes, who might or might not be appearing on the next season of the NJ Housewives, was seen hooking up with The Spin Crowd’s Jonathan Cheban. He’s straight?

According to Radar, Jonathan and the newly single Ashley/daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, were seen locking lips this week in NYC. “They were in the corner making out,” said a source. “They were all over each other.”

And it seems Jacqueline might not be too pleased with the new relationship as Jonathan tweeted to her this week, wondering why she hadn’t been responding to him.

TELL US – ARE YOU HIGHLY ANTICIPATING DANIELLE’S MUSIC VIDEO?

It seems Jacqueline Laurita, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, wants absolutely nothing to do with a lawsuit against her former co-star Danielle Staub.

Following the leak or release of Caroline Manzo’s deposition, in a defamation lawsuit brought against Danielle by her ex-husband Kevin Maher, TMZ is reporting today that Jacqueline desperately wants to avoid testifying.

As for her reason, Jacqueline tells TMZ “I don’t want to go back to that dark place.” She added, “I didn’t even know I was on the list … it’s not really a list I want to be on … can I be taken OFF the list?”

As we previously reported, Kevin is suing Daniele for $5 million, citing that she spread horrific lies about him in the press and in her memoir. In addition to Caroline, Jacqueline was also added to the witness list to testify about Danielle’s “dishonest reputation.”

RadarOnline also reported a week ago that Danielle offered Kevin a settlement deal, but he ultimately rejected it.

“I really don’t want to go back to that dark place. Every time I’ve moved on the tide tries to pull me back in. I’m enjoying the sun. Let me be,” said Jacqueline, who is set to take the stand in February 2011.

In other NJ news, Dina Manzo tweeted a rare picture of she and her husband Tommy Manzo, who has never appeared on the Bravo show. That photo is below -

Teresa Giudice of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is opening up on a number of topics.

In a new interview with Parade, Teresa discusses her former cast-mate Danielle Staub, her future, and she also touches on what we reported a while back, which is that she has a college degree. Yes folks, Teresa is college educated as she tells Parade she thinks she is the only NJ housewife with a degree. And unlike her fellow cast-mate, Caroline Manzo, who gave Bravo a ‘Me or Danielle’ ultimatum, Teresa actually voices that she would have been okay with Danielle’s return to the show.

Excerpts from Teresa’s interview below -

Do you have any regrets about getting involved with The Real Housewives of New Jersey?
“Nothing could prepare you for being instantly famous. Being on the show was the best thing I ever did — and the worst thing. Yeah, the paparazzi and the fake stories about my family are aggravating, but we choose to concentrate on the blessings–the great things that came out of it, like my New York Times best-selling cookbook, Skinny Italian, meeting so many wonderful fans, things like that.”

All of your fans are very concerned about your, Joe’s and the girls’ well-being. Is your family really $11 million in debt?
“I really appreciate everyone’s concern. I get the sweetest, most uplifting letters from people. And yes, Joe and me and the girls are all happy and healthy. We’re in God’s hands. What more could I ask?

Do you think that you will have to sell your gorgeous house? Or will you have to get a job?
“I have a job! I have four jobs actually. My first and most important job is being a mommy. But I’m also an author, I run an online boutique, and I make appearances around the country. I think I’m the only New Jersey Housewife that actually went to college. I have a fashion degree and worked as a buyer for Calvin Klein and Macy’s before I had kids. I’ve always worked. I love to work. But my family comes first.”

You truly “sizzle” in the commercial for Sizzles Tanning Salon in Totowa, N.J. How did that come about?
“I just signed with ICM [International Creative Management, a leading talent agency], so yes, you’re going to be seeing a lot more of me! I’m also releasing my own fragrance, a make-up line — and a line of cookware.”

It’s official: Bravo announced that Danielle Staub will not be returning to The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
“If Danielle was on or off the show, it didn’t bother me. I can deal with her. And I’m certainly not afraid of her or anything. Was she fired? You’ll have to ask Bravo.”

In other news, despite Teresa’s claims that she and her sister-in-law/newest NJ housewife Melissa Gorga are not at war, their facebook and twitter postings tell a very different story.

As we have reported, the two ladies do not get along – at all, mostly due to what sources say is the constant mistreatment and non acceptance of Melissa by Teresa. But we’ll let you be the judge. Check out the following twitter postings made by both ladies last week. Please feel free to pay attention to the timelines -

Guess who else was at Audriana’s small family party? My brother Joe, my sister-in-law Melissa and their gorgeous kids. xx 8:33 PM Sep 21st via web

Here’s a pic of Melissa & my baby nephew Joey at the party. Neither of them are black or not speaking to me. Hmm.. http://twitpic.com/2qqp7d 8:35 PM Sep 21st via web

Don’t you love little Joey’s outfit? I brought it to him when I visited him at the hospital. So much for those feud rumors… xx 8:36 PM Sep 21st via web

Above are all tweets by Teresa trying to dispell the rumors. It however seems Melissa wasn’t buying it as she made the following tweets -

This is a first… What a JOKE! 9:34 PM Sep 21st via web

Well I think we have never made it to a tweet or even a mention at all, why now… hmmmmm, good night! 9:41 PM Sep 21st via web

All joking aside, the past is the past, everyone starts with a fresh slate, family is family, period. 11:27 AM Sep 22nd via web

What a day, can a leopard change its spots? I’m not to sure yet… 5:23 PM Sep 22nd via web

Must say I love the balls on this chick named Melissa Gorga. I’m guessing Teresa badly wants to mend things with Melissa as not to appear as a phony and mean person to her fans on the new season of the NJ Housewives. Teresa’s popularity has taken a major hit with the news of her $11 mil bankruptcy filing and irresponsible spending. Having her true colors shown on the new season of the show will definitely not help matters.

So far, it seems Melissa isn’t willing to play along with the phoniness. Plus if Melissa is even telling half the truth about the awful way Teresa has treated her in the past, then I must say that Teresa is a pretty crappy being. And there’s a whole lot more interesting exchanges between these women. For example, just this week, Teresa posted that she was taking dance classes, after which Melissa called her a “copycat,” later posting that she had been taking dance classes for the past 4 months.

And again, I ask regarding the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Danielle Staub who? The addition of Melissa to the show is absolutely genius. Also, as of the moment, it does not seem like Bravo wants Dina Manzo back. Can’t say I blame them considering Dina’s husband refuses to do the show, and Dina’s ex-husband has now reportedly banned their daughter from appearing on the show.

According to a new report, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is not happy that her deposition video has leaked online.

Just days after TMZ posted the video, which shows Caroline admitting she gave Bravo an ultimatum that she would not return to the show if Danielle Staub did, Zap2It is reporting today that Caroline is fighting to get the video taken off the net.  Wonder why?

Zap2It reports that sources close to Caroline tell them she’s working with Bravo to try and get the video pulled, though she’s uncertain TMZ will cooperate.

As for the reason Caroline wants the video off the web, a source says it’s not because she doesn’t stand by what she said or that she’s scared of Danielle, but rather because she wants the “Danielle Drama” over with and completely out of her life.

In other NJ news, days after Life&Style broke the story of Danielle Staub’s Range Rover getting repossessed, a rep for the fired Bravo housewife is now denying the story to HollywoodLife, claiming the story is “untrue.”

“As for false statement out there saying her truck was repossessed this weekend … the lease was up and she turned it in … plain and simple,” claims Danielle’s rep.  Riiiight.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THE VIDEO SHOULD BE TAKEN DOWN? DO YOU BELIEVE DANIELLE’S STORY?

When news of the firing of Danielle Staub hit weeks ago, a few media outlets revealed the reason was an ultimatum given to Bravo by the Manzos.

Well, we can now confirm today that ultimatum is indeed true and fact. TMZ obtained a video of Caroline Manzo during her on camera deposition in the defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.

In the video, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star reveals she delivered a strict ultimatum to the show’s producers — if Danielle returned for another season … she’d quit the show.

“I did tell Bravo and Sirens that there is no amount of money you could put on the table for me next year,” said Caroline, adding that “if Danielle Staub is on the show, I am out because my integrity means too much to me … so for Season 3, they know it’s either Danielle or myself.”

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON CAROLINE’S ULTIMATUM? DID BRAVO MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE?

With their common enemy Danielle Staub gone from the show, it seems the Real Housewives of New Jersey are now ready to turn against each other.

In what some fans of the show saw coming from a mile away, RadarOnline is reporting today that there is a major rift between Caroline Manzo and Teresa Giudice.

According to RadarOnline, Caroline and Teresa are now on the outs because Caroline is tired of all of Teresa’s drama. A source even tells the site the two ladies hate each other! “Caroline is not talking to Teresa,” says an insider to Radar. “She is just tired of all the drama. She is just keeping her distance. She doesn’t mind if Teresa is on the show, but they all hate each other now.”

The insider adds, “She feels that Teresa has gotten to carried away with everything and she is just aggravated with her.” Radar also reiterates the news that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, whom she hates, will be on the show next season. Must say season 3 of the NJ Housewives is looking good right about now.

This reported rift between Caroline and Teresa doesn’t come as a surprise, as the two ladies have had some rather interesting things to say regarding the other’s behavior this season.

Here’s what Teresa wrote in her Bravo blog regarding Caroline’s complaints about her kids on the trip to Italy -

“I don’t know why Caroline was so crabby. I know she was sick before we left and in pain, but she could have stayed home like Dina. What did she think it was going to be like with 20 people and babies? It wasn’t a romantic honeymoon for her and Albert. I don’t know why that shocked her. And I’m sorry she felt uncomfortable when we were all speaking Italian, but hello, it’s Italy! Her Italian grandfather might not have taught her Italian, but I think she’s had plenty of time over the years to learn it if she wanted to!”

And Below is what Caroline had to say in her blog about Teresa’s outburst on part 1 of the reunion show -

“First things first. I expected yelling, screaming, and tears. I NEVER expected Andy to get tossed like a rag doll. I was in complete shock when that happened. Actually, I had to compose myself because I wanted to cry. Seriously, I did. When Teresa jumped off the couch and approached Danielle it was literally within the first ten minutes of filming. The only thing going through my mind at that moment, beyond the obvious WTF is going on, was that I couldn’t sit through hours and hours of this. If this is happening now, what’s it going to be like when we get to the real issues? Thank God it never got to that level again, it was an ugly moment. Ugly, ugly, ugly.”

Millionaire Matchmaker

She is baaack! Bravo has announced the all new fourth season of The Millionaire Matchmaker will return on October 19 at 9pm ET/PT.

Even better, in an attempt to capitalize on the success of the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, Albie Manzo, 24 and Chris Manzo, 21 will appear on the show this season, as Patti Stanger will attempt to fix them up. A source told the NYPost back in June that the boys were interested in “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls.” No word yet on if mama bear Caroline Manzo will make a special appearance.

The fourth season of the show marks the big move from Los Angeles to New York City. The always crude Patti mentioned in a previous interview that the toughest part of filming in NYC was “finding hot girls” in the city. Patti is also pulling out all the stops this season, as she will be introducing a few new tricks including a spy camera, lie detector test and hiring a make-up specialist from “Saturday Night Live.”

According to Bravo, we can expect the most over-the-top bachelors and bachelorettes yet, including a Wall Street to beach bum, Judith Regan – the queen of all media, and Freddie Mitchell – ex-wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Patti’s recent break-up with ex-fiance Andy Friedman will likely not be a topic this season, as the filming for the show had ended before it happened. Returning alongside Patti is Chief Operating Officer Destin Pfaff, and newly promoted Rachel Federoff, now the VP of Matching.

UPDATE - Thanks to our reader Valerie, it seems Chelsea Autumn is no longer on the show. According to Chelsea’s facebook page, she now works as the head matchmaker for a company called Queen of Hearts, Inc. Wonder what led to Chelsea’s departure…

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON?

Despite Danielle Staub’s firing from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, it seems Caroline Manzo continues to get dragged into her mess.

The latest is a new report by RadarOnline, which details Caroline’s recent testimony against Danielle in a Federal defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher. Kevin is accusing Danielle of defaming him in media outlets and in her memoir, The Naked Truth.

In her testimony, Caroline, who was called to testify on behalf of Kevin, recalled the many tales Danielle told her about him. “She depicted him as a monster,” said Caroline during the July 22 deposition. “She depicted him as someone who would beat her daily, as someone that put her in the hospital due to the beatings, I want to say on more than one occasion.”

Caroline continued, “She claimed to have been hiding in a tree at some point, afraid that when he came home he would find her and beat her. She claimed to be the victim of prostitution due to his demands, that he put her into that world, again depicting him as an absolute monster. And the only reason she stayed with him, because she feared for her life if she left.”

According to Radar, Danielle has filed a motion with the court to have the case dismissed. An hearing for that has been set for September 27.

In other news, Danielle continues to talk to any media outlet willing to listen. The latest is her claims that she has not one, but two spin-off shows in the works! Danielle is claiming one of the shows will be a reality show based on her life a la Bethenny Getting Married, while the other will have her hosting a show a la Jerry Springer.

Danielle, pictured above on Friday snagging freebies at a MTV VMA retreat (feel free to check out the items in the photo background), told RadarOnline her reality show will be better than that of Bethenny Frankel. “It’s going to be better because it’s actually going to keep people awake and on the edge of their seats,” Danielle told Radar. “They’re going to want to see what I’m doing, where I’m going, who I’m wearing, what I’m wearing, who I’m chewing up and spitting out, maybe who I’m dating, maybe who I’m not, what is going on in my real life … and the one thing people say, love me or hate me, I keep it real and you’re paying attention.”

Danielle also shares she will be revealing her sexual orientation on her show. As for her other show, Danielle says she will be hosting it. “It’s going to be over the top and definitely something that I think people are going to be quite surprised that I’m going to be able to do and who I’m replacing.”

And while we continue to remain suspicious about Danielle’s “two shows,” HollywoodLife is reporting today that Danielle had a camera crew in tow during an OK magazine event last night. Danielle revealed to the site that one of her shows will be titled Social and will air on the WealthTV network. And no, we’ve never heard of the WealthTV network either, just in case you’re wondering.

“I’m replacing Robin Leach basically, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, but with a twist,” she says. “There will be more socializing with the rich and famous celebrities and we’ll show how they give back as well.” Danielle says she will tape the first episode this Thursday — and will tape for 26 straight weeks. “Each week I’ll have a different celebrity or billionaire,” she says adding, “I’ll be filming anywhere from New Jersey all the way to India. We have a lot of celebrities lined up but I can’t tell you their names yet. Lori Michaels [her rumored girlfriend] will be a part of this too.”

Danielle confirmed to HollyWoodLife that her kids will appear on both shows. Poor kids.
