It was a family affair as cast members Teresa Giudice, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita brought their families along. Also in attendance was Susan SaundersJill Zarin, and Alex and Simon from the NYC Housewives franchise. Missing in action were Dina Manzo and Danielle Staub. More photos from the party below.
Also making headlines and gracing this week’s cover of Life&Style magazine is Dina Manzo who apparently underwent a bubbies breast reduction.
Dina reveals she had her surgery on April 6 to correct a decade-old breast augmentation that she says gave her back pain and made her self-conscious. “I woke up from surgery and just knew I was super huge and needed to get the implants taken out,” she tells Life & Style of her 2000 surgery. “I went back within the first two weeks and got them reduced.”
Despite her first reduction, Dina reveals she was still unhappy with her breast size. “I was uncomfortable and felt like I was carrying a child around with me all the time,” she says. “Plus, you don’t realize it until you have big boobs, but they’re a pain when it comes to dressing.”
Dina says her new surgery has taken her from her previous 32DD size breasts to a more modest 32C cup. “Everyone says I look the way I should now,” boasts the NJ housewife. “I’m proportional!’

The 2nd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered last night, and things are quickly taking a turn for the worse when it comes to controversial ‘housewife’ Danielle Staub vs. the other housewives on and off the show.
In her new blog on Bravo, Danielle has resorted to spilling all sorts of secrets about her fellow castmates include things that were confided to her by former close friend Jacqueline Laurita. There’s a good chance Bravo will end up deleting this blog by Danielle, so below are the lowpoints highlights of Danielle’s blog. Danielle dishes on the sex life of Jacqueline’s teenage daughter Ashley Holmes, accuses Dina Manzo of forging her ex-husband’s signature on a document, and also accuses Caroline of being close friends with a criminal.
“Teresa, Teresa, Teresa … Seriously? A Jewish anti-Semitic statement out of your darling little daughter’s mouth? Is this how you teach your children? I suggest you pay a little more attention to what’s going on in your home and less to what’s going on in mine. And when you talk about my vagina … could you do so a little bit less? It’s beginning to concern me how obsessed you are with my body, mainly my vagina. You’re like an insane asylum without medication. You have no filter, no vocabulary, and absolutely no room to be passing judgment upon others. I’d love to entertain your thoughts of me giving a crap what you say about me. But oh, gee … I don’t. Sometimes listening to your voice is like nails on a chalkboard. Just sayin’ my personal opinion. I would love to talk all day about everything that is going on in your life like bankruptcy fraud … yikes! Your husband drunk driving … double yikes! All those wonderful things when you claim you have nothing to hide. Maybe we’ll save just a little bit for episode two. And your husband is filling your trash cans with perfectly good toys that your children have finished playing with? It may be a good idea to, instead, clean them up and give them to underprivileged children. Just a suggestion – not that you are asking, but I am going to tell you anyway. If that is your way of giving back – you should consider why you think you are such a wonderful person.
Jacqueline – why are you talking to your daughter about birth control now? I think it would have been more important when she told you she was giving BJ’s at the age of 17. I never once heard you voice one concern about birth control at that point. “Just sayin’.” And as far as your husband telling me that he doesn’t want me around, you stated that very clearly in a national publication before your son was even born. You know, the son that I helped you to conceive by taking you to my infertility doctor of 17 years? When you told me to stay away, I stayed away. So, did your husband really expect me to bring a baby gift? Congratulations. You have a beautiful baby boy – and now your true colors are really starting to show. I really felt bad that Ashley got thrown out of Catholic school. I’m so happy to hear she finally did graduate. Was that by a GED or with her graduating class?
Shows me a lot about who you really are Caroline. You’ve shown me who you really are and it’s definitely not a matriarch. But when you decided Kim’s boyfriend Michael, who was completely wasted, was a source of value, instead of a man clearly in an “alcoholic” dazed stupor. Are you really that desperate to hear anyone talk about me? You did, after all research me by your own admission. It took you back 25 years to find anything bad about me, right? Will you stop at nothing? You yourself say your husband is never home because he works all the time. Sweetie, get a hobby. So, you threw a thousand dollar a plate dinner? Was that for the sheriff, or was that for your good friend, Bernie Kerik, who is serving a four year sentence? Is what he did more important then what I did 25 years ago? That glass house thing, so cliché – but very applicable here. I know a lot of women the same age as me. I’m proud I don’t know you as well as you think you know me. The only thing we share is age.
Premiering tonight at 10:00 pm eastern is the all new second season of the NJ housewives. So what can we expect this season? Well tonight, we will see a still pregnant Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita. Caroline’s husband, Albert Manzo, is 70 pounds lighter, all thanks to his lap-band surgery, so she takes him out shopping to buy a new $8,000 Armani suit ofcourse.
Tonight will also be bringing us the reported racist comment Teresa’s then 8-year-old daughter Gia, made about Jews. And ofcourse there will be plenty of drama involving the ladies and Danielle, who’s new sex tape will be released any day now.
TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED FOR THE 2ND SEASON OF NEW JERSEY? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREMIERE EPISODE?
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.
The second season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey does not premiere until May 3rd, but the back and forth between the cast and slandering each other in the press has officially began.
HollywoodLife caught up with Dina Manzoand asked her about fellow castmate, Danielle Staub. “Danielle loves drama. She loves every second of it and being the center of attention whether it’s positive or negative,” said Dina.
The site then caught up with Danielle a few days later, informing her of Dina’s comments. Here’s what Danielle had to say, “I’m not going to put stock in her opinion. I think it’s really easy for Dina to judge — she’s never really left home. She’s the youngest of 11 children. She went from mom and daddy to husband number one and her sister found her husband number two. People are figuring out I’m not the person that [the wives] make me out to be.”
When asked what we can expect from the upcoming 2nd season, Dina reveals, “It’s a lot of crazy.” She continues, “We’re Jersey so we keep it real and we’re a little bit more street than the other housewife series. We’re not afraid to show everything – the good, the bad, the ugly. And you don’t mess with us either!”
In other Jersey news, Danielle also revealed that her 12 year-old daughter, Jillian Staub, is the “new Miley Cyrus.” Apparently Jillian is a great singer and has just recorded her first sing, “Whatcha Saying.”
“Any age group will be interested in listening to Jillian’s music,” says Danielle. “It’s clean, fresh, fun and entertaining. I call it pop with a little twist of soul. She has a great pop voice and it’s not like lollipops and bubble gum but yet you could eat some pizza and have some fun. You have a journey with her music. I think she’s relateable and she’ll touch a wide group of people.”
Good to see nice things happening for Danielle’s daughters, her other daughter, Christine Staub, 16, is also a model with IMG.
There seems to be a trend with Bravo Housewives when they decide to write a book, they tend to reveal some rather TMI details about their lives. First Nene Leakes revealed she used to be a stripper in her book Never Make the Same Mistake Twice, and there’s no telling what New Jersey Housewives’ Danielle Staub will reveal in her upcoming book – The Naked Truth. It is now however Alex McCord’sturn.
The Real Housewives of New York City star has decided to share some rather interesting tidbits in her new parenting book, Little Kids Big City: Tales From a Real House in New York City, set to hit the stands tomorrow April 6th.
The NYDailyNews got their hands on an except from the book during which Alex shares some rather controversial details about her pregnancy. She has two sons with hubby Simon Van Kempen. “Throughout my pregnancy, I gave into every craving I felt,” admits Alex. “When I wanted to have a drink, I did.”
And it doesn’t end there. Alex also reveals she actually drank the night she went into labor with Francois. She sipped on champagne as Simon escorted her to the hospital.
Alex then shares that she and Simon spent most of their time with the boys, “We’re very lucky that we’re able to pay our nanny extra for two evenings a week to go out,” shares Alex.
A “source” however claims the husband and wife duo go out way more than two nights a week. “They definitely go out A LOT during the week,” says the source. “They’ll go to practically any event to be seen.”
Danielle Staub, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey recently experienced some heartbreak as she recently lost her mother.
According to PEOPLE, Ruth Merrill died on March 21 after having a stroke at the age of 75 in Athens, Penn. Her funeral was held this past Thursday.
Danielle, pictured above with her 2 daughters — Christine and Jillian — shares that her mom will have some appearances on the new season of the NJ Housewives, set to premiere May 3. “She’s on the show a little bit, she’s definitely a voice of reason with me,” reveals Danielle. “She was a sweet woman, she adopted me, I was her miracle. She was one of the most energetic women. She was a very religious woman, a God-fearing woman.”
As for whether or not her co-stars offered their condolences, Danielle answered no and explained that she did not expect them to. “We know how they feel about me,” said Danielle of her costars. “They weren’t my friends before the show, they weren’t friends with me on the show, and they won’t be friends with me when the show has come and gone. I don’t expect them to reach out to me. I would actually be shocked. I would prefer not to have people be fake around me.”
Some of her fellow housewives are however responding to her comments. Jacqueline Laurita tweeted, “Last she told me, she had NO contact w/her Mom in many years & had NO desire to. News to me.Must be new in the past few months. Sad to hear.”
Teresa Giudice also had the following to say via a tweet, “Just found out that Danielle’s mom passed away may she rest in peace..”
We also get to see the birth of Teresa’s fourth daughter, the debut of Danielle’s daughter, Christine Staub, on the catwalk at New York Fashion show, plus a trip by most of the women to Venice, Italy. Oh yeah, there are also stripper poles, police officers, and some boxing.
