According to the NYPost, Chris and Law-School HottyAlbie Manzo have enlisted the help of Patti Stanger to help them find their matches. And what are the boys looking for in a mate? A source tells the Post they are interested in “brunette, Italian-Catholic girls.”
Chris (pictured left) currently works at the family-owned Brownstone in Paterson, NJ, while Albie, 23, attends law school. While the kids are not millionaires, not yet at least, the Post reports Caroline and Patti are old friends from Jersey. Should be a fun episode to watch.
The 4th season of Millionaire Matchmaker is currently being filmed in NYC.
Despite last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey bringing us stripper poles and a mother-daughter fight, the topic everyone is talking about this morning is Dina Manzo’s exit from the Bravo show.
Dina, 38, tells UsWeekly Danielle Staub is the sole reason she left the show. “I would say 99.9 percent is because of Danielle [Staub], but the other .1 percent was drama created by her,” said Dina. The final straw came when Danielle, 47, showed up to the Manzo’s Brownstone for a charity event along with some ex-cons. Danielle ended up causing a ruckus while her escort Danny hurled a gay slur at Chris Manzo, Dina’s nephew.
“That whole night at The Brownstone just put me over the edge,” shares Dina. “Danielle became all we ever talked about! I wanted to film some fun stuff. I thought I signed on for a nice family show and it really turned in a different direction.”
Dina also made a special appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens last night with Andy Cohen, during which she made some very funny interesting jokes at the expense of Danielle. Andy asked her about Danielle’s claim that Dina was doing nails when she first met her. Dina did acknowledge she once did nails, but she was 17 at the time, asking “What should I have been a stripper” instead? Good one Dina.
Another great question that came up was why Dina’s daughter, Lexi, was not on the show this season. Oddly enough, Lexi appeared on WWH last night. If you recall, Danielle claimed earlier this year that Dina forged her ex-husbands signature the first season to get Lexi on the show, and that Lexi wasn’t on the show this season because Dina didn’t have her ex’s permission. Dina however said last night the reason her daughter wasn’t on the show was because she didn’t like the prostitution whore direction the show was going in.
Five Questions/Observations about last night’s show (Brief Recap) -
1) While it’s understandable Dina and the NJ ladies want Danielle out of their lives, will someone please inform them they would have no show without Danielle. Yes Danielle is all kinds of nuts, she is however the one making the show somewhat interesting.
2) Did I miss a press release? Is Kim G. the new housewife? She is obviously auditioning for a spot on the show.
3) Doesn’t it seem like Danielle has her own show on the NJ Housewives show? You know the one with all her ex-con friends and “rich” girlfriends. Perhaps Bravo will give her a spin-off, she seems to have really created her own little mini-show on the show.
4) Does Danielle really expect us to believe she was not aware she was being taped on Steve‘s cell phone? Were we also to buy her whole I’m too scared to get back into the dating world routine? This coming from a woman who’s porn videosex tape was just released. And how gross was the stripper pole scene with Danielle’s ex-con friends ogling at her?
5) Now that Dina is gone, will Bravo please give us a new NJ housewife?
Bonus – Did anyone else have nightmares about Grandma Wrinkles (Dina’s cat) last night?
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE SHOW? ARE YOU SAD TO SEE DINA LEAVE?
Tonight marks an all new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and as Bravo promises, we will see one of the NJ housewives leave the show for-ever! (cue up dramatic music).
So what else can we expect tonight? Just after Ashley moves back home, the drama starts back up with mom Jacqueline. While the guys try to enjoy a relaxing poker night, Ashley refuses to speak with her mother. Danielle’s sex tape drama will also be brought up in tonight’s show. You know, that other sex tape involving her and her ex Steve Zalewski, who will be appearing once again on tonight’s show.
Teresa Takes Home Off The Market – In other NJ news, just 24 hours after her home appeared for sale on multiple Realtor websites, Teresa Giudice tweeted to her fans that her home was “NOT FOR SALE.” Surely enough, the listing for Teresa’s home was yanked off these websites. So what gives? Well no one knows, perhaps Teresa and hubby Joe received some more “assistance” from their family members who reportedly supply them with $10,000 a month.
One of our smart readers however pointed out that “a broker is not going to place a property in the MLS, without a listing agreement from the seller,” meaning Teresa and her hubby had to have signed off the listing.
Danielle’s Sex Tape Comes Out Today - Today is the release date of the infamous sex tapeno one wanted to see. Danielle is described as being the “horniest housewife.” It will be interesting to see how Danielle’s tape fares on the market considering most of the housewives’ fan base consists of women. Dina Manzo also did a new interview during which she had some harsh words for Danielle. “This doesn’t shock me,” Dina said. “I feel horrible for her kids. Horrible. I wanted to start a ‘save Jillian campaign.’ The younger daughter, her face just breaks my heart.”
Dina then goes on to make a good point when she says, “Everything a parent does, they should think of their children first. I know that’s what I do.”
Danielle’s Home On The Market – Danielle’s home has been listed for the price of $1.095 million. According to the listing, it was ordered by the courts due to Danielle’s divorce settlement. Once the sale is done, Danielle and her ex-husband Tom Staub, will split the proceeds.
Who’s Leaving The Show? - This shouldn’t be a spoiler as multiple media outlets have reported Dina Manzo will be the exiting housewife. However neither Bravo nor Dina has yet to confirm this news. Dina will also be appearing on Watch What Happens tonight, alongside Ramona Singer.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST EPISODE OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES?
Danielle, who exhibited the paranoia and delusions of Kelly Bensimon mixed in with the narcissism of Jill Zarin, brought us great TV when she decided to use the fundraising event of a cancer struck baby to further her own agenda against the Manzo family.
Danielle made sure to to show up to the event with a crew/posse, ex cons included, and even permitted them to raise hell, but ofcourse leaving ChrisManzo out of it, because he is underage afterall. It was obvious from the start that Danielle was looking to stir up trouble, and nothing the Brownstone could have done would have prevented that. Dani also made sure to include her friend Kim G. in her madness, and Kim G. for whatever reason decided to go along with it all.
Well the father of the baby, who the fundraiser was held for, is now speaking out. In a new interview with Zap2it, Chris Stilianessis shares his thoughts on the events that occurred that faithful night.
“For starters, I would tell Danielle thank you for bringing my daughter’s illness to the table and to the ‘Housewives of New Jersey,’” said Stilianessis. “However, I would also tell her that I’m very surprised that you would utilize my daughter’s sickness for your own selfish reasons, to get back at the rest of the housewives.”
Stilianessis also reveals he was not aware of Danielle’s beef with the Manzos. “I had no knowledge of Danielle’s relationship [to the Manzos] prior to the fact,” he says. “Because if I did, I would have asked her politely not to come.” He continues, “She showed up to the event with I want to say in the realm of 25 people,” he says. “She had some guys who were Hells Angels. She came with people who, I come to know now, were people who were in jail. I was under the assumption they were her friends.”
It seems a friend of Danielle’s bought her one table at the benefit for $350.00, which held only 10 people. However Danielle decided to show up with over 20 people “for protection.”
“When you’re going to a charity event for a child, what do you need that for?” asks Stilianessis who also shares that Danielle only raised $300.00, which came from the owners of a local supermarket. And since her table was paid for by someone else, Danielle has yet to donate any money herself.
Stilianessis, pictured with his daughter above, still hopes that Danielle will see that what she did was wrong and apologize. “If she really has changed as she says she has,” he says. “There will be a public statement. That day in the restaurant, she had tears in her eyes. If those were true tears, her heart would open with an apology.”
The good news is that Emanuela’s cancer is currently in remission. Anyone who would like to get more information on her fight against heptablastoma can visit the Emanuela’s Heart for Hope website.

Last week, Danielle Staub introduced us to her two ex-con friends who will protect her from the big bad Manzos. Below is Jacqueline’s hilarous take on that whole situation, taken from her bravo blog -
“Introducing tweetle dumb and tweetle dumber! Are these guys actually coming on national TV and playing that Wangster card? Seriously? No one is listening Danielle, and nobody cares! If Danny really was the wiseguy he and Danielle are trying so hard to portray him to be, I am SURE his superiors are not too happy with him right now. I don’t think a real wiseguy would go on national TV and announce that to the world. It wouldn’t be very smart. Although, it might be good for his acting career. Hmmm. Danielle did nothing but make herself look like a paranoid lunatic who brings ex felons around her and into the lives of her children. Danielle claims 25 years ago she fell into the wrong crowd. Does she feel that today she is surrounding herself with a better crowd? Check again, devout Catholic. Birds of a feather, huh? Are felons even allowed to associate with other felons while on probation? I thought that was not allowed. Is it appropriate for Danielle to choose to bring those felons, for the reasons she chose to bring them, to a sensitive benefit for a family who is fighting for their daughter’s life? I don’t think so. Let’s just see what kind of drama Danielle decides bring to this benefit to make it all about her. Watch what happens.”
Who knew Jacqueline had a great sense of humor. Moving on to tonight’s episode. After bringing home baby number 4 from the hospital, Teresa decides it’s finally time for Joe to get “snipped.” Meanwhile, Caroline invites the ladies over for a “girls night in” with cocktails and snacks where the conversation turns to Danielle’s invitation to Dina’s charity at the Brownstone –will tensions rise over the her potential appearance?
And the road of good intentions gets bumpy for Danielle when she and her protective entourage prepare to attend the Brownstone. How will it all come to a head? And will things turn violent? Find out tonight @ 10/9c on BRAVO.

Must say after three weeks of watching the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, I am simply not impressed. Compared to the Real Housewives of NYC, the show seems to be falling flat and the Danielle drama is getting very old. Will touch more on this later.
But on to the recap of last night’s episode. First we get a quick rehash of Jacqueline’s argument with her teenage daughter Ashley Holmes, who is now living on her own. Jacqueline is in a tough spot with parenting Ashley because Ashley is now an “adult” and no longer living under her roof. I can’t help but feel that had Jacqueline done a better job with parenting Ashley earlier on, things would be better between them now. Jacqueline herself has admitted to making parenting errors with Ashley. This also brings up a point that I feel strongly about which is that just because a kid turns 18, doesn’t really make them an adult and ready to be on their own. A girl like Ashley should still be living at home in my opinion. I’m guessing Jacqueline might be helping her financially in some shape or form. Perhaps cutting her off financially until she stops being rude would help her straighten up.
Moving on to Danielle who receives flowers from Jacqueline congratulating her daughter Christine on her modeling debut. You can see some modeling shots of Christine below. Jacqueline has stated in an earlier episode that her husband does not want her befriending Danielle, but for some reason Danielle is persistent on becoming BFFs with Jacqueline again and even decides to leave her a scolding message, accusing her of not being her own woman.
One thing I really want to touch on is Danielle’s parenting skills and why she insists on involving her innocent children in her drama and in adult issues. This started in the premiere episode when she took her kids along a car ride to stalk Caroline’s event. Her kids looked and acted embarrassed. And then last night, her youngest daughter, who once again looked mortified, asked to be excused as Danielle decided to call Jacqueline. And once again, Danielle decided to unload her adult drama onto her young daughter. Does this woman not have any friends? Involving her children in her drama is simply wrong and unnecessary. Poor kids. I’m really curious to know more about the man who decided to marry Danielle and make her the mother of his children. Danielle’s ex-husband’s name is Thomas Staub or Gerald Staub. If anyone knows anything about him or has a photo, please feel fee to email us at Realitytea@yahoo.com.
And how amazing was it last week when Christine Staub was photographed by Gilles Bensimon, the ex-husband of Kelly Bensimon of the NYC Housewives? I found that interesting for some reason considering Gilles has never made an appearance on the NYC Housewives. By the way the photos of Christine from the Daily Front Row magazine can be seen below.
Something else that robbed me the wrong way was a joke or non-joke Danielle made during an earlier episode about Christine being able to help her financially with her modeling career. Just wrong, wrong, and more wrong. Putting that kind of pressure on a 15 year-old girl is wrong and disgusting. There’s a good chance that Christine, despite being very gorgeous,, might not make it in the modeling world, so why even say that kind of thing? It’s become rather obvious that Danielle sees her daughters as meal tickets as she is also pushing her 12 year-old to get into the music industry, even calling her the next Miley Cyrus. Plus is it just me or does Danielle seem to be living vicariously through Christine’s new found career?
