With the holiday weekend, our favorite reality TV stars were missing in action since not too many red carpet events were scheduled and the photographers probably took a vacation. As the week went on, the stars popped back up as the camera crews returned.

Dina tells Oprah's network that the show turned toxic and it was no longer an environment she enjoyed. "At the very beginning of filming we had a lot of fun," Dina confesses. "Because they weren't sure what direction the show was going into — it was before the table flip happened."
Jacqueline sums up the issues and any hope between Teresa Giudice andJoe Gorga, "That's why there's so much intense feelings because there's so much hurt there, but so much love there, too."
On Joe Giudice's autism comments on last week's episode of RHONJ: "I know a lot of people got hard on Joe for the autism comment but I know Joe and i think he was acknowledging the brains and the intelligence in a lot of children on the spectrum but I think he just has a lack of knowledge of how much time and attention and focus it is and work in terms of raising a child with special need. I think he just doesn't really know but he just saw them as very intelligent which is very true but you know I think he just didn't realize what he was saying."
The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast has come a long way since their arrival on the reality TV scene back in 2009. You know, back when they were still dressing like NJ housewives and not pageant contestants. For some, the style transformation has been a positive thing and for others..not so much.
Last June Daniellealleged her liabilities at $1.9M and her income of only $63,791 in 2011. She earned $13,791 from her work with Dial-A-Star (HA!) and $50,000 for winning the massive reality TV flop Famous Food. Danielle owes Nordstrom a few thousand dollars and is in hot water with the IRS for $111,161. Does anyone in Jersey pay taxes?!
She also owes $70,000 to the town of Wayne NJ because of unpaid property taxes! $5,162 to the New Jersey Taxation Department (whomever that is?) and a whole slew of money to lawyers and "communication experts." Is Danny on the list? I'm guessing low-budg sextapes and stripper antics don't cover the cost of paying PIs to dig up dirt on all your RHONJ co-stars!
