The Real Housewives of New Jersey have yet to call a truce with their co-star Danielle Staub.

The New Jersey Star-Ledger is reporting that some of the New Jersey housewives including Teresa Guidice and Jacqueline Laurita (photographed above) decided to have dinner with Danielle’s ex husband Kevin Maher, who also happens to be the man behind “Cop Without A Badge” — the book that outed Danielle’s past as an escort and drug user.

Kevin is the man on the far right, and the man on the far left is Charles Kipps, who also helped write the book. Also at this dinner were Joe Giudice, Chris Laurita and Albie Manzo, the son of Caroline Manzo.

So what was the point of all this? Well it was all apparently to get answers about Danielle’s past. Danielle had denied being a “coke whore” and claimed Kevin “brutalized and terrorized” her during their brief marriage. A claim Kevin doesn’t deny, saying, “I did hit her. I’m not proud of it.”

Well after this dinner, Jacqueline tweeted, “everything was answered, i have clarity. moving on now!” She later added, “Just so this talk of crazy ends. Ex took a polygraph to clear his name and crazy is a big time liar. That’s my closure. Let’s all move on.” Not to be outdone by Jacque, Teresa also tweeted the following – “omg what am i hearing, music to my ears…she is certifiable…”

Danielle then tweeted the following:

“@chris_lala @jillzarin @jaclaurita eating dinner with an admitted Rat and wife beater? Did you even read his book?”

“Jacqueline is in a desperate dark place she told ms everything about her family still hiding behind my past she’s miserable.”

Slow news day folks.  Two cast members of the mega hit show – Jersey Shore dropped a bombshell on Tuesday, when they both revealed they are not even Italian!

Snooki and fellow castmate J-Woww appeared on Fox News’ The Strategy Room, during which J-Woww revealed she was Spanish and Irish, and not Italian. Even more shocking, she also shared that “Nicole isn’t and [castmate Ronnie Magro] is not full Italian either.”  By the way, Nicole is Snooki.

So what nationality is Nicole/Snooki — who regularly describes herself as a Guidette — well that answer is Chilean.

It’s safe to say Italian-American groups will not be happy with the revelation of this latest tidbit. Mainly because they were already complaining about the use of the terms “Guido” on the show, which they had always believed to be widely offensive to Italian Americans. The show perpetuates “negative stereotypes,” UNICO National President Andre DiMino told Fox last year.

“If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?” he continued.

This could prove to be rather controversial, as it will be interesting to see how people feel, mostly Italian Americans, about non Italians using the terms “Guido” and “Guidettes.”

TELL US – IS IT OFFENSIVE FOR NON ITALIANS TO USE THE TERM “GUIDO”?

In other news, J-Woww along with NJ Housewives – Dina and Caroline Manzo attended Kim Kardashian’s Bebe fashion Tuesday at New York Fashion Week.

Ready or not, here they come! Some of our favorite and not so favorite Bravo Housewives are set to bring their drama onto the popular game show – “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

Eighteen of the Housewives are set to appear on the show February 22 – 26 as they team up with real-life housewives for a special presentation of “The Real Housewives of Millionaire.” Housewives from all four casts – New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and Orange County – will participate.

Andy Cohen, Executive Producer of the Housewives’ franchise will sit in via Skype as the expert for the “Ask The Expert” lifeline all week. Not to worry though as the Bravo housewives will not be without any help.  They will actually be paired in the hot seat with the contestant housewives to help them answer the trivia questions.

The Housewives that will be teaming up with contestants include New Jersey cast members Caroline, Dina, Jaqueline and Teresa; New York cast members Kelly, LuAnn, Ramona, Alex and Jill; and Atlanta housewife, Kandi. Celebrity questions will then be presented to the contestants by Orange County Housewives Vicki, Lynne, Jeana, Gretchen and Tamra, as well as Danielle from the New Jersey cast and Lisa and Sheree from Atlanta.

Jill Zarin of the NY Housewives talked about her excitement in doing the show – “I’m really excited to be here. I bet I’m the only one who really watches the show on a regular basis. I watch it every day. I TiVo it and watch it at night. I do. And then when I got asked to be on the show, I died. It was like dying and going to heaven.”

Dina Manzo of NJ was nervous and hoped to get a lot of pop culture questions.  “I’ve been too busy to get ready, that’s why I’m so afraid. I could redecorate the whole set with my eyes shut, but I’m scared to answer these questions. I just hope she has a good sense of humor, my partner,” said Dina.

TELL US – WILL YOU BE TUNING INTO THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MILLIONAIRE?

Is Tamra Barney a grandma? There are rumors floating around that the self professed “hottest housewife” on the block might have become a grandmother. Allegedly Tamra’s son, Ryan Vieth posted some information on his facebook about his one month old daughter named Dakota Vieth. Perhaps someone with access to Ryan’s page can confirm this for us.

Gretchen Rossi also recently took to her facebook fanpage to post a photo of her shooting a commercial for TurboTax, not sure what the correlation is between Gretchen & taxes but a behind the scenes photo is below.

Real Housewives of New Jersey

Everyone seems to have their own opinion on the infamous White House party crashers aka Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the Real Housewives of New Jersey are now letting theirs be known.

Yes, they may flip tables and call each other crack whores, but one thing they would never do is crash a White House party. “It’s a little crazy,” Teresa Giudice told Us Weekly at the My Hero Gala in NYC Tuesday. “I wouldn’t go to any place I wasn’t invited to. It’s poor etiquette. It’s not my style.”

“There are plenty of ways to get your 15 minutes,” said Caroline Manzo. “I thought it was irresponsible — very irresponsible. We are at a time of war and what message does that send to those who want to do us harm?”

Dina Manzo, who is rumored to not be returning for a 2nd season, also chimed in. “I don’t care if it’s the White House or your next door neighbor and you’re not invited, you don’t show up,” she said. “It’s really not the right thing to do.”

Danielle Staub made an appearance this week on Bravo’s new weekly talk show, “Watch What Happens” hosted by Andy Cohen.

Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.

Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.

Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.

Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.

I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.

Kelly Bensimon

Kelly Bensimon was able to take some time away from Kelly world to talk to People in a new interview about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of New York.

As we reported earlier, Kelly has signed on for the 3rd season, but she is uncertain as to which other housewives will be returning. “I am coming back,” says Kelly. “But I actually don’t know who else is coming back. They don’t really tell me.”

Kelly is however uncertain is the new season will be able to match the drama of the other housewives’ franchises. “We start shooting in two weeks,” she said. “And it’s going to be interesting now because the bar is so high. When Gretchen [Rossi from The Real Housewives of Orange County] is getting a motorcycle at a party and Teresa [Giudice from The Real Housewives of New Jersey] is throwing over the table, what’s going to happen?”

She goes on to talk about The New Jersey Housewives – When I met Danielle, she said, ‘Thank you so much for being supportive of me. She was just really excited and flattered that I supported her. Unless you do something wrong to me, I will give you a chance.”

And what about Caroline Manzo? She’s “the all-time mama bear,” Kelly said. “And actually, she was really sweet and really nice.”

Kelly has also gotten close with some of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, “I was going down to Atlanta to open a hotel, so I called NeNe [Leakes],” Bensimon said. “I took out NeNe and Lisa [Wu Hartwell] and we had so much fun. They’re crazy, fun and spirited. They’re awesome girls.”
