In other news, another day, another new unflattering story about Teresa Giudice. The NYPost is reporting today that the broke Real Housewives of NJ star, who’s home items will be getting auctioned off next month, demanded $3,000 to appear at a charity event for abused women.
The Post reports a manager for Teresa said she would only appear at the July 19 New Jersey fund-raiser for Strengthen Our Sisters if she was paid. The event organizer told the Post, “Mike Esterman, who books her appearances, said . . . she would not show up unless she got paid. I explained this was for a shelter for women and children. He said it doesn’t matter…Danielle Staub, her daughters, and Lori Michaels came for free.”
Esterman however attempts to defend his client Teresa telling the Post, “I made it clear I only handle her paid appearances, and the fee is $3,000 and a car service. I said charity events have to be agreed by Teresa personally, and they should reach out to her directly.”
In other Teresa news, a new scandal is brewing in the form of Pizzagate. It all stems from Teresa’s comments during the last episode of the NJ Housewives during which she mentioned that she buys frozen dough to make her pizzas.
The only problem? It just so happens that Teresa has a dough recipe in her cookbook Skinny Italian, for what she calls the “best crust in the world!” This is leading some of Teresa’s fans to question the honesty and integrity of her book.
Below is a preview clip of Teresa wanting diamonds from hubbyJoe Giudice. Keep in mind this episode was filmed just weeks after the Giudices filed bankruptcy.

After posting some new pictures of Ashley this weekend during which we pointed out she looked a tad different, some of our awesome readers pointed out in the comments section that Ashley did indeed get some plastic surgery.
A look at Ashley’s facebook page shows a picture of the bandaged up reality star after getting her nose job (that picture is posted below). When asked by her fans, and yes she has fans (26, 650 fans to be exact), why she got a nose job, Ashley gave the following hollywood answer, saying her rhinoplasty was done for her “septum and sinus problems.”
“it was actually for my septum and sinus problems.. while they were in there they smoothed a tiny bump i actually still kind of have it haha,” was actually Ashley’s full reply on June 10.
One has to wonder if her nose was the only thing she had done as she looks much different from before, and as much as we hate to say it or even think it, she does look much prettier no? Not that there was anything wrong with the way she looked before, but here’s to hoping Ashley stops here and doesn’t get any more changes done to her face or body.
Below are more photos of Ashley plus a photo of her with dad Matt Holmes, who also happens to be Jacqueline Laurita’s ex-husband.
UPDATE: Another photo of Ashley’s dad added.

Apologies in advance for the poor embarrassingtragic photoshopping skills. With that being said, let’s get right to the recap of episode 11 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, brilliantly titled – Staub Wounds.
The episode starts out with a scene of Teresa and hubby Juicy Joe, as they get the girls ready so Joe can take them out. For a minute there, I was touched at the thought of Joe being a good father to his little girls, well that is, until Teresa casually mentions that Joe threats their daughters like boys, you know because he hasn’t been able to get the son(s) he wants after 4 tries…
Things then take a disturbing turn when Joe makes his very young daugthers fight each other after their karate lesson. I just found this scene to be all kinds of wrong and disturbing. Nothing wrong with putting his daugthers in karate/taekwondo, but the making them fight each other was just wrong and icky to watch.
We move on to victim Danielle, who has decided the best way to protect her weave self is to take self defense classes, at the suggestion of her ex-con rumored bed buddy Danny, who spends the entire time standing back in ring glaring at Dirty D. Danielle of course is involving her two daugthers in her quest to be the ultimate fighter. Danny suggests Danielle picture Teresa and Jacqueline in front of her as a means to add more fuel to her fighting fire. The Bravo cameras then pan to Danielle’s daugther Christine, who looks pretty embarrassed and would probably rather be back home doing homework at this moment.
Danielle gives us her best dose of crazy during her 1 on 1 interview when she declares, “Walking away is not good enough for them. They want to make you feel like the prey. And then they sit there and they go, I don’t know why you keep you saying you’re the victim. Well Bitch cause I am. Stop effing chasing me!”
The former prostitution coke whore then declares, “It only takes one good smack to the head to make a person never walk again.”
We see Jacqueline at home, and Kim Granatell, who is arguably the most two faced person in the universe, decides to pay a visit. I’m just going to refer to Kim G. as the newest housewife from here on out. I don’t even think she’s auditioning anymore for a slot on the show, she has obviously replaced Dina. No need to wait for a press release from Bravo. So why exactly did Kim G. show up to Jacque’s? Well to stir up the drama pot of course! The two rehash the country club drama and Kim G. informs us clumps did indeed come out of Danielle’s head.
Next up, we see Mama Bear Caroline making individualized eggs for all three of her very adult children. Two of the kids leave to go to work and Caroline and Albie McHottie Manzo discuss his future. Albie informs his mom that he needs to get a recommendation letter from his old law school before he can get into a new school.
Teresa, who filed bankruptcy just a few weeks before this episode was filmed, is shown going into Kim DePaola’s boutique Posche to do some shopping, but then again Teresa is never really shown shopping, but rather talking during her time there. Teresa once again assures the world her house is absolutely not in foreclosure. Stalker Wannabe new housewife Kim G. then randomly shows up, wearing a very age inappropriate sleeveless fur attire. Teresa once again states that she meant well in trying to strike up a conversation with Danielle, despite admitting on last week’s episode of Watch What Happens that her intention was to confront Danielle on some of the rumors she was spreading about her.
Teresa then makes a funny, the funniest quote of the night actually, when she states, “The only thing I regret about that night was pushing Kim G. because she is an older woman and I do respect the elderly.” Hilarious, especially considering that it came from the very unintelligent Teresa. And how old is Kim G. by the way? She can’t be a day younger than 70 60, no?
In tonight’s new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the NJ housewives attempt to move on from the unbeweavable drama that took place last we… Ok not really, tonight’s episode is basically a sequel to last week’s drama.
Danielle seeks her day in court in the wake of the hair-raising (and hair-pulling) tangle. On the other side of the law, Caroline’s son Albie tries to forge his career as a lawyer. Meanwhile, Jacqueline’sdaughter Ashley has to face the repercussions of her behavior.
The funniest part of tonight’s episode however comes in the form of Teresa Giudice and hubby Juicy Joe Giudice. The husband and wife duo, who might or might not be going to prison in the near future, can be seen tonight joking about losing their home while Joe shows Teresa around a pizza parlor and an apartment complex, two new business ventures he plans to open.
There’s a very good chance tonight’s episode of the NJ Housewives is part of the reason the Giudices bankruptcy trustee is now accusing them of perjury and concealing assets. The assets the Giudices are accused of concealing? It just happens to include a certain a pizza parlor and Laundromat.
“Joe owns a construction company. He’s always been an entrepreneur,” Teresa says before asking, “That means a person that own their own businesses, right?”
While showing Teresa around the apartment complex, Joe makes a joke telling his wife they will soon be living in one of the apartment suites.
Teresa however makes it clear Joe was simply kidding. “Joe is totally kidding that I’m going to be living in one of those apartments. That’s never going to happen. I could never see myself living there,” Teresa says at the end of the clip, before winking at the camera. Priceless irony all around.
Danielle Staubwill also be appearing on tonight’s episode of Watch What Happens.
The preview clip is below -

Just days after Danielle Staubannounced her plans to sue all “perpetrators” involved in the fashion show fiasco, co-star Jacqueline Laurita is now slamming her lawsuit.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who is looking much slimmer nowadays, thinks the lawsuit is pathetic. “You can’t defame someone who defames herself,” Jacqueline told Zap2It. “I have not told any lies about her. I never physically touched her or threatened her, so I am not worried.”
Danielle’s attorney, Paul Giblin told the HollywoodLife on Tuesday, “We are going to use this footage and prepare a case against these women,” despite the fact that Jacqueline’s daughter, Ashely Holmes, was the only one shown physically attacking Danielle. Giblin continued, “We are seeking assault and battery charges, defamation of character and punitive damages as well.
No one was arrested as a result of the attack, but Ashley did get fined $189 by the courts for pulling Danielle’s “hair.”
As for Jacqueline, she feels this is just another way for Danielle to get publicity. “She will do anything, and I mean anything, to stay in the press,” she says. “I think she’s pathetic and desperate. Maybe she has a fear that she won’t be asked to return next year so she’s grasping at straws to keep a connection between us. I don’t know.”
In other Danielle Staub news, a new story by Star magazine asks, ‘What Happened to Danielle Staub’s Face?’
The above before and after photo is posted and some surgical experts try to determine what work the 47-year-old hasn’t has had done. The after photo was taken on July 6th.
“Is she wearing a mask?” asks Palm Beach-based dermatologist Dr. Kenneth Beer. “Her proportions are not correct anymore, because it appears she’s had too much filler injected into her lips and cheeks.”
Danielle is also featured in this week’s ‘What I Ate Today’ column in OK! magazine. Her diet seems slightly less restrictive than Kelly Bensimon’s700 calorie a daystarvation diet.
Below is a sample of what Danielle eats during a normal day:
Breakfast: a bagel Snack: almonds and a Venti white chocolate peppermint mocha Lunch: grilled chicken wrap Dinner: grilled chicken salad with snow peas and mandarin oranges
“Do not let her win this time. You win by doing nothing.” – Caroline Manzo (Episode 9)
“She got exactly what she wanted. She wanted everybody to say, ‘See, mean girls. You see the mean girls? You see what I have to deal with?’ And you gave it her.” – Caroline Manzo (Episode 10)
The fight club scene of the Real Housewives of New Jerseyaired last night and it definitely lived up to the hype. Perhaps this episode was a gift from Bravo, you know, for putting us through one of the most boring seasons ever of a housewives franchise.
I started watching the episode just ready to feel sorry for Danielle. I mean I just knew I would end up feeling sorry for Danielle, who after all was going to be attacked, oops I mean assaulted, byAshley Holmes, but within the first 10 minutes of watching the show, I quickly realized that would not be the case. The reason? Well you’re just going to have to read the recap
So the episode begins where Bravo left off 2 weeks ago, with the Danielle and Teresa conversation turned confrontation. I tried to give Teresa the benefit of the doubt two weeks ago, thinking she perhaps meant well in trying to talk to Danielle. But after watching the events that unfolded, it’s pretty clear Teresa’s intentions were to stir things up. Even Teresa herself admitted on WWH last night that Danielle had been going around town spreading rumors about her, and she intended to confront Danielle about those rumors.
The confrontation continues and evidently in New Jersey, Paterson to be exact, “Don’t call me honey,” are fighting words. Watching this scene made me see Teresa is a whole new different light. I always knew she wasn’t the brightest bulb of the bunch, but her behavior made her appear extremely immature and downright moronic. The excessive head twisting and “Don’t forget girlfriend, I’m from Paterson,” comment was beyond ridic! Is this woman serious? Surely she jests.
Things take a turn for the worse when Danielle uses the F word. In case you’re wondering, the F word stands for Foreclosure, at least when it comes to the housewives of Bravo. Danielle, perhaps referring to the foreclosure story that came out about the Giudices last year, tells Teresa her home is in foreclosure, and boy o boy, did she unleash the kraken! The truth foreclosure comment hit a major nerve with Teresa, and Danielle decides to start running for some odd reason. Really, why is Danielle running? Teresa, being the Paterson badass that she is decides to chase after Danielle.
Back to the foreclosure story. Danielle was actually correct, well sorta. A story came out last October stating Teresa and Joe’s home was in foreclosure. It however turned out the foreclosure was for a property they owned and not for their mansion. What’s even more interesting? Well according to police documents, this “fight scene” actually took place on November 11th. Just 2 weeks after Teresa and Joe filed for bankruptcy on October 29th. This might explain why Teresa went nuts with the comment. You know what they say, the truth hurts. This also makes me think the whole housewarming party took place sometime after the bankruptcy filing, yet before the Kim D fashion show, which if true, is quite unbelievable.
Now back to the show. I was certain I was going to feel sorry for Danielle because Teresa was the aggressor and instigator this go around. However, her over the top acting, antics, and just all around hysterics were extremely ridiculous. I mean seriously Danielle? When you think about it, there wasn’t a change in Danielle’s behavior and reaction before and after being attacked by Ashley. Teresa decides to pick an argument and that means she needed to take off running? I ask again, why was she running? She even had a bodyguard with her. Teresa and Jacqueline never touched her, so why the hysterics?
Well I’ll tell you why. Danielle is a perpetual victim who relishes in playing the victim role. Some people aim to be survivors while others accept the victim role, and get very comfortable in it. Danielle is the later. And speaking of roles, did you know Danielle has an acting background? Yes, years before embarking on a porn career, Danielle was an actress and even had a tiny role on the ABC soap – All My Children. Caroline said it best when she later told Teresa and Jacqueline, “She got exactly what she wanted. She wanted everybody to say, ‘See, mean girls. You see the mean girls? You see what I have to deal with?’ And you gave it her.”
The best part of the show comes in the form of the random blonde lady for yelling out, “This is such f*cking bullsh*t,” right into the cameras. Someone please get this woman a reality show asap!
Danielle is now outside and hysterically crying because having a co-star and former friend yell at you during an argument calls for hysterical crying. The third best part of the show comes when Kim G. tries to calm Danielle by yelling at her, “Calm down!” All that was missing from this scene was a calming slap across the face ala Airplane.
Coming up in tonight’s episode, Jacqueline and her husband have reached their limit with Ashley’s bad behavior as she continually provokes Danielle. Fearing the unpredictable wrath of Danielle, Jacqueline’s husband threatens to kick Ashley out of the house if she keeps stirring up drama. Even without the Ashley and Danielle drama, Jacqueline can’t seem to escape Danielle and gets a surprise phone call from Danielle’s “energist”.
Ashley, who has already seen tonight’s episode, is apparently not happy with her behavior. And what’s a Bravo star to do when you are not happy with the way you behaved on national television? Well, if you’re Jill Zarin Ashley, you blame it all on editing. Ashley tweeted:
“WOW THE NEW EPISODE IS BULLSHIT.. F*CK EDITING. I’M OVER IT…SO DONE WITH THIS.”
Ashley has since deleted the tweet.
In other NJ news, Danielle continues to use her faux lesbian relationship with singer/songwriter Lori Michaels to garner attention. We reported last week that Danielle showed up to an event with Lori and her two daughters. InTouch magazine was able to interview Danielle during the said event, and she stated she doesn’t care much for men.
“I can say that people are reading between the lines, and pictures don’t lie. In all honesty, I don’t care much for men. Let’s leave it at that.” Dirty D continues, “I’m very happy. I really am. She is a big part of my soul, and we share a lot of chemistry together.”
Not sure who’s more to blame. Danielle for pretending to be a lesbian, or supposed proud lesbian Lori Michaels for going along with the nonsense publicity stunt?
Moving right along, below is a preview clip of the drama that ensues. We see Danielle literally trying to run away from the fashion show, while Teresa Giudice chases after her, repeatedly calling her a “coke-whore.”
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE OF THE REAL HOUSEWIVES OF NEW JERSEY?
The episode starts off with Caroline Manzo auditioning two of her sisters to be Dina’s replacement. No, just kidding! But oddly enough, the two sisters look more like Dina than Caroline. Albie’s law school dilemma is brought up and Caroline shares she is at a crossroads in her life, as her kids are now getting older and getting ready to move out of the house. It seems Caroline, who has devoted her entire life to her kids and family, is now starting to realize it’s time to start stepping back on the mama bear role.
Teresa and Jacqueline meet up for lunch with Kim D. who does her best Kelly Bensimon impression when she utters a “Hiiiiii” as she walks in late. And did you know Kim D. and Kim G. are sister in laws? Yep I just found that out today. Definitely puts things into perspective. Teresa brings up a good point when she asks Kim D. if she can be trusted since she talks about Danielle behind her back, only to turn around and hang out with her. Kim D. invites the ladies to her fashion show and informs them Danielle will be in attendance. Jacqueline is hesitant to be in the same room with Dirty D (excellent nickname given to Danielle via our awesome commenters), while Teresa seems on-board.
Next up is New Jersey’s equivalent of Kelly Bensimon, except Danielle, even at her worst, still seems very sane in comparison to Kelly. Danielle shares she’s received text messages from 16 ex-cons people informing her that Kim D. has invited her enemies to the fashion show. Dirty D then storms into the Posche boutique and demands to see Kim D. Danielle immediately decides the front desk lady, Donna, isn’t bowing down to her, thus causing her to storm out of the store. Danielle proceeds to once again involve her young daughter in her adult issues via a phone call. Danielle then decides to head back into the store and commands Donna to have Kim D. give her a call. Donna has the best reply as Danielle storms out again: “Didn’t catch your name.” The only thing missing from this scene was Danielle screaming out a ‘Don’t you know who I am!’
Kim D. returns to the store and calls Danielle, who accuses Donna of being rude to her and putting up her finger at her. I went back to watch the footage and at no point did I see Donna raise a finger at Danielle. Dirty D then proceeds to return to the store to stir up some more drama. When Kim D. doesn’t bow down to her, she threatens to stop shopping at Kim D’s store because it would “ruin” their friendship. Perhaps someone should inform Danielle the only reason Kim considers her a friend is because of her wallet. Kim D. realizes she no longer has to pretend to be Danielle’s friend, you know since Danielle is no longer a paying customer, and politely kicks her out of the store.
