Danielle Staub

According to a new report, sex tape alums Danielle Staub and Ray J are an item!

Danielle 48, former star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was snapped kissing the R & B singer/VH1 reality star/Kim Kardashian’s ex who is 18 years her junior. The two pictured above at the grand opening of the Lemon Basket restaurant last Wednesday were spotted kissing at the same event.

No word yet on when we can expect a new sex tape from these two but the photo of the kiss is below!

In other news, Danielle, who is set to star on VH1’s upcoming reality show Famous Food, is now speaking out once again against her former costar Teresa Giudice. In a brief interview with Rumor Fix, Danielle reveals she is not surprised Teresa got into a bar brawl and reportedly got punched in the face.

“I’m not shocked at all” said Danielle of Teresa’s involvement in the bar brawl.”She’s an animal.”

Meanwhile, Danielle’s former costar Caroline Manzo is speaking out against her via an interview with Life & Style magazine, explaining why she decided to shun Danielle at the last reunion of the NJ Housewives. If you recall, Danielle attempted to call a truce with Caroline, who refused to hug her.

“I knew she wasn’t sorry,” Caroline tells Life & Style of the shocking moment. “I wasn’t about to let her end the show on a fake positive note. I refused to give her that moment.”

Caroline added that Danielle hasn’t lived up to her promise as she continues to bad mouth her former costars. “During the finale, Danielle offered to stop the war of words,” Caroline states. “But she’s still talking about everyone. She broke her promise. Things have not changed with her one bit. She’s the same person now that she’s always been, and I want nothing to do with her.”

And finally, Danielle also tells E! News that the ratings of the new season will go down the drain without her. “It’s not going to have the ratings,” she said. “I brought the [drama]. People either loved me or hated me, but they were paying attention. This [season] is just full out nasty family fighting. Everyone’s got that. Where’s the element of surprise there?”

The VH1 network is planning to turn up the heat this summer with the announcement and premiere dates of some all-new series as well as returning favorites!

Basketball Wives – The biggest surprise of all is the very quick return of the Basketball Wives. While the second season only ended less than 2 months ago, season 3 will debut on May 30 at 9/8c. With the exception of Suzie Ketcham, who quit the show, all of the cast members including Royce Reed, Shaunie O’Neal, Evelyn Lozada, Tami Roman, and Jennier Williams will be returning. VH1 also announced that Meeka Claxton, wife of former NBA player Speedy Claxton, has joined the cast. According to reports Meeka and Tami have already gotten into a physical altercation during filming. A photo of Meeka is below!

Famous Food – The network confirmed what we reported weeks ago, which is that reality famewhores Danielle Staub, Heidi Montag, and Jake Pavelka will indeed star together on a new reality show. The concept of the reality show is that the famewhores are given an opportunity to create a flourishing and fully-operating restaurant. Over the course of eight weeks, the colorful crew of “celebrities” will roll up their sleeves and work together to launch their own restaurant, aptly named, “Famous Food.” Joining the above three famewhores will be DJ Paul and Juicy “J” (from rap group Three 6 Mafia), Ashley Dupre (famed ex-prostitute) and Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”). The show debuts Sunday, July 10 at 10/9c.

Tough Love – Also returning this summer is Tough Love: Miami. Steve Ward and his mother Joann Ward are back to help single women make a splash in the Miami dating pool. Steve will work with a group of eight single, attractive women, all composed of classic female archetypes including the “too much too soon” romantic, the “gold digger” and the late 30’s “work obsessed.” They will be living together in a house for 10 weeks and given a chance to learn Dating 101.”VH1 Tough Love: Miami” premieres Sunday, July 10 at 9/8c.

Celebrity Rehab – Season 5 of Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew Pinsky and Michaele Salahi debuts Wednesday, June 29 at 10/9c. From heartbreak to hope, this season follows Dr. Drew and his patients on their difficult and deeply emotional journey to sobriety, as well as an often raw and unflinching look at the many faces of addiction. As we reported back during filming, Michaele got kicked off the show early on for not having an addiction. Joining Michaele this season are Michael Lohan, Bai Ling, Jeremy Jackson, and Dwight “Doc” Gooden.

Also returning, The T.O. Show season 3 will premiere Monday, August 22 at 10:30/9:30c and La La’s Full Court Life will debut the same night at 10/9c.

According to a new report, not all reality stars are raking in the dough when it comes to their books.

The HollywoodReporter reported last week that Bethenny Frankel is the most successful of them all. Not only did she sell her Skinnygirl alcohol line for $120 million, but both of her first two books – which made the New York Bestseller list – sold a combined total of 480,000 copies!

New Jersey Housewife Teresa Giudice’s first cookbook – Skinny Italian – was also a hit as she sold over 100,000 copies.

Other Bravo housewives didn’t have as much luck starting with Real Housewives of Atlanta star Nene Leakes whose memoir ‘Never Make the Same Mistake Twice‘ flopped pretty badly. Nene’s book sold 10,000 copies according to the Perez Hilton blog.

Also flopping were Jill Zarin and Danielle Staub, as their books reportedly sold fewer than 10,000 copies each. The Jersey Shore reality stars didn’t fare much better as Snooki’s book sold 35,000 copies with The Situation’s book only selling 15,000 copies.

In what can only be described as a match made in famewhore heaven, three of the most popular attention-whoring reality stars gathered together for lunch Monday afternoon in Los Angeles, and of course there were cameras around to film it all.

Former angry Bachelor contestant Jake Pavelka, former Real Housewives of New Jersey prostitution whore Danielle Staub, and former The Hills mannequin Heidi Montag, all pictured above, have reportedly joined forces to film a new reality show.

According to reports, the untitled show being filmed for the VH1 network will follow the z-list reality stars as they attempt to get help for their addiction to fame? No! Of course not! They will attempt to open up a new restaurant in just 28 days!

“They are revamping a restaurant from the ground up,” says a source on the set of the new reality series to PEOPLE. “They started shooting this past weekend.”

Danielle recently tweeted, “I’m working on a project. Let you know soon what and with whom!! Xxoo.” Jake also tweeted on Tuesday, “Crazy fun day of shooting!” No word yet on what happened to Jake being a “pilot.”

And it gets even better as there are three more cast members joining the above “stars” on the show. They are Ashley Dupre – aka the world’s most famous call-girl, plus Three 6 Mafia rappers DJ Paul and Juicy J.

UPDATE – VH1 announced on April 20 that the reality show is titled Famous Food and will debut in the fall.

In what might or might not be a slow news day, season three of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is still filming and the housewives are now taking a trip to the Dominican Republic!

According to RadarOnline, housewives Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and newcomers Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile — left for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic over the weekend for a family vacation with their house husbands.

“All the housewives and husbands took off on Sunday for Punta Cana,” said a source. “It’s a fun trip with friends and family.”

Radar adds that the housewives left their kids behind for this trip, and that Bravo is on hand to film the vacation for season 3. Scary Island 2 anyone?

Meanwhile, some fans are now wondering if Dina Manzo, who quit the show midway through season 2, might be returning based on a recent tweet she made.

“Filming a secret “project” for Bravo today…this should be fun!” tweeted Dina on Monday. However, it’s likely the filming wasn’t for the NJ housewives as Dina revealed a while back that while she wasn’t returning to the Real Housewives of NJ, she was indeed planning a return to TV.

And finally, weeks after Teresa Giudice jokingly stated she actually missed Danielle Staub’s presence on the NJ Housewives, Danielle is now firing back via a new interview with Popeater, making it clear the “the feeling isn’t mutual.”

“I am so happy with my life after leaving [‘Housewives’]. It wasn’t funny to me. It was very painful,” says Danielle, the current host of Wealth TV’s ‘Social.’ “I’m really happy in my life,” she says. “I have so much that I’ve just begun to do.”

While we’re still months away from the third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, some of the stars are now talking about what to expect.

For starters, controversial housewife Danielle Staub will not be returning, and that is a-okay with Caroline Manzo, who threatened to leave the show if Bravo allowed Danielle to come back.

The HollywoodLife caught up with both Andy Cohen and Caroline this week and they both seem to agree on one thing. “Without Danielle, it’ll be great!” Andy said.

“People worry that the show won’t be what it was. I’m glad it’s not what it was,” Caroline stated. “Now, it’s drama that’s memorable.” Caroline also confirms there will be some new housewives this season, reportedly Melissa Gorga (Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law) and Kathy Wakile (Teresa’s first cousin).

“There’s a couple of new faces,” Caroline reveals. “It’s a very different dynamic this year. It’s a lot of fun.”

And despite reports that the third season finished filming last December, Andy states that “Jersey is filming right now,” adding that “it’s going really well.”

“It’s the best it ever was,” Caroline finalizes. And in a separate interview with E! Online, Caroline reveals that she doesn’t miss her sister Dina Manzo on the show because she gets to see Dina in real life, while also hinting at some drama with Teresa according to E!.

“Oh Teresa! You’re gonna have to watch and see, there’s a tremendous dynamic going on,” Caroline said. “My beautiful daughter and sons are doing great, they’re loves lives come into play. Interesting things go on this year.”

Bravo has yet to officially announce the premiere date for season 3 but all signs point to sometime in May.

As for Danielle, who is rumored to be working on a spinoff reality show about her personal life, her new show called ‘Social’ premiered on Wealth TV days ago and according to our reader ZOSO666, the show is a train wreck. “It is awful. I want my 1/2 hour back but I had to watch it. She is like the white trash version of Robin Leach. I don’t suspect it should last too long,” added Zoso. Ouch!

While the third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t premiere until a few more months, Teresa Giudice is now speaking out on the upcoming season in a new video interview with Perez Hilton.

In the brief interview, Teresa also discusses her feelings on Danielle Staub, the infamous shoving of Andy Cohen at the reunion show and her other projects in the works such as opening up a new restaurant.

On Former Costar Danielle Staub – “She would say things that were not nice like ‘don’t call me honey,’ like really? My reaction was is bitch better? You know, like for instance the table flip, she said to me ‘pay attention please,’ like who are you to tell me to pay attention. Are you serious?”  Teresa added, “Like you can’t just expect to say whatever you want to people. You’re going to get a reaction out of them.”

Feelings On Danielle Today – “You know, like I have no grudges to hold towards Danielle. You know, I wish her all the best,” said Teresa. So is she happy Danielle isn’t coming back for the third season? “It didn’t phase me at all. To tell you the truth, I kind of miss her,” replied Teresa with a laugh.

On Shoving Andy Cohen –  “I mean I love him. It was not something I meant to do. I think he got in the middle or something and you know, at that moment…” When asked if Andy was surprised at how strong she was, Teresa replied, “Yes he was. He was like ‘wow you’re strong.’ I have good guns.”  And by guns, she meant her arms.

On Season 3 & Sis-in-law Melissa Gorga Joining The Cast – “Well you’re going to have to watch and see. I’m definitely going to be on.”  Teresa coyly added, “If anything, I had to go see a lot more family. Let’s say that.”

On Other Projects –  Teresa revealed she’s coming out with her second book in May called Fabulicious, calling the new book “straight up Italian.”  Teresa also shared she and hubby Joe Giudice are opening up a new restaurant, something she called “a great Italian restaurant.”

Bravo has yet to officially announce the premiere date of Real Housewives of New Jersey season 3 but it’s expected to debut sometime in May.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO A SEASON 3 OF THE JERSEY HOUSEWIVES?

Despite winning a $260,000 ruling against his former business partner Joe Giudice for forging his name on a $1 mil mortgage loan and then pocketing the money, it seems Joe Mastropole is not too optimistic he will be able to retrieve a penny of the amount owed to him.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Mastropole feels his ruling is bittersweet because he doesn’t believe Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and her hubby Joe will cough up the money. In fact, Mastropole refers to Joe’s money as “untraceable.”

“I’m disappointed because she’s [Teresa] the one making income and his money is fraudulent, untraceable and untaxed,” Mastropole told Radar.“She’s the only one bringing money in right now… You can’t really go after him.”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem Mastropole will be able to go after Teresa either as a judge dismissed the fraud claims made against her last December.

As reported yesterday, Judge Morris Stern ruled that the money owed to Mastropole be excepted from the Guidice’s $11 million bankruptcy discharge. “Even though I’m an exception to his discharge, I think his money is untraceable so it will be hard for me to recover any debt,” added Mastropole.

In other NJ news, the Luxist is reporting that former NJ Housewife Danielle Staub’s new show will be making it’s debut Wednesday, February 9th on Wealth TV.

It seems the show, titled ‘Social,’ will follow Danielle as she tours the home of wealthy Z-listers. Four episodes of the show have been shot with the network planing two seasons of the show — a total of 26 episodes. In each episode, Danielle will introduce viewers to a “celebrity” with a tour of their home.

One of the “celebrities” that will appear on this season is said to be Ivan L. Wilzig. And no, we’ve never heard of him either. As a matter of fact, we don’t even know what a Wealth TV is. Seriously, what is this network? I have Direct TV, do I have it? Do you all have it? Does anyone have it? Does it exist? Anyone? Help anyone?
