Kim Granatell

It’s early in the day, you’ve probably just had your breakfast, so apologizes in advance for this story.

It seems Real Housewives of New Jersey extra Kim Granatell and professional famewhore Michael Lohan need some publicity… desperately. If not, what else would explain the above photo of the two randomly making out?

So what gives? Well, according to Tom Murro of Celebritymagnet.com, the photo was taken Wednesday at a bar in NYC following the taping of a new show they are doing together .

As for Kim, who will reportedly appear on season 3 of the NJ Housewives, she describes Micheal as “a good kisser” adding that “he just needs to ditch the cigarettes.”

When asked what attracted her to Michael the most, Kim replied, “I liked that he didn’t have a saggy ass, he has a nice smile, killer eyes and he’s devious like me!” Oy.

TELL US – THOUGHTS?

” I liked that he didn’t have a saggy ass, he has a nice smile, killer eyes and he’s devious like me!”

Just 24 hours after the Bravo network confirmed her departure from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, scorned woman Danielle Staub is wasting no time in trashing her co-stars.

The 48-year-old reality star who was fired by Bravo, despite her claims that she left the show on her own accord, is giving out interviews to every media outlet that is willing to listen to her. In the process, she is making certain to bash her fellow housewives, while spilling some of their secrets. In fact, the only housewife not to bear the brunt of Danielle is Jacqueline Laurita, who famously made up with her during the reunion show.

In an interview with Steppin’ Out magazine via RadarOnline, Danielle goes as far as to refer to Teresa Giudice as an “ape” while stating that Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice “loves his strippers.” Excerpts are below –

Danielle on Teresa’s Looks –

“She needs a hairline revision. Planet of the Apes has nothing on her!.. She reminds me of Cornelius from Planet of the Apes. Could you imagine if her face is that hairy what her body hair must be like? It’s got to be out of control.”

Danielle on Teresa and hubby Joe affair rumors –

“I would not doubt that for a second. I hear that all the time. I was hearing those rumors before we even taped the show. Joe loves his strippers. Maybe that’s another reason Teresa hates me. She forgets I used to be a stripper. I’m not a stripper anymore. Don’t hate us all… If she was making Joe happy maybe he wouldn’t have to go some place else. I don’t know what goes on in their bedroom, but from what I’ve seen, Teresa is not exactly a turn on. Her forehead is disturbing. But it’s not even about her looks.”

Danielle wasn’t done yet as she also gave an interview to OUT magazine, during which she trashed Caroline and Dina Manzo. In the interview, Danielle claims she is friends with Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga, while stating that Teresa treats them very poorly and that she is jealous of their wealth. Excerpts below –

Why did what you said about her nephew make Teresa so mad in the first place?
Teresa never greeted her nephew. I have proof of that in email. She never said congratulations to her brother when her nephew was born. Her brother has been directly contacting me for the past year and a half, letting me know how he feels about his sister. And how he and his wife — pregnant wife — were thrown from her house because they brought my favorite cookies to Christmas Eve… Teresa threw a hissy fit. And not once do you see her with her brother and her sister-in-law and their beautiful children. Not once! But she glorifies everybody else. Why couldn’t she show her real family? Why? Just tell me why? Because they have more than her maybe? Because she’s jealous of them maybe? Or maybe they would have told the truth and said Teresa goes off like that all the time. “It’s not just Danielle. Teresa’s certifiably crazy.” I think they’re going to have their chance now to speak the truth. Go for it, I’m all behind you.

Did you try to get Dina’s kids taken away from her?
No, I don’t even know her daughter’s last name. I do know that Dina did a whole article devoted to trying to make the world believe that I did that, but Dina’s not doing the show because she forged a legal document with her ex-husband’s name on it, giving her daughter permission to do season 1. And when her ex-husband found out about it, he forbade her to do season 2, leaving Dina with nobody in her immediate family — her daughter or her husband, who never taped with her once — to do anything with her. So she left the show because she was too embarrassed to say that she forged a legal document. I had to have my ex-husband sign for my children. She didn’t do that. But again, Dina lies, and everybody swears by it. Dina is more fake than the whole lot of them. It’s just that she’s the baby of the family, so Caroline’s going to keep backing her up. I am truly the only gay advocate. And I’ll tell you one thing, none of them can prove to me they’ve walked one foot in any Pride. Where I have walked, continuously over the years, a total this past year of eleven miles. In stilettos. To support and lift up, and be there, and hug and embrace my gay community. And I will continue to do that. I speak for equality, and I always have.

This comes as no surprise as Danielle has always shown just how vindictive she is. In other news, TMZ posted some bikini photos of the elderly Kim G. this morning, and yes you read that right, bikini photos. No word on how TMZ got the photos or why exactly, but so umm yeah, the photos are below.

The craziness continues tonight as part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is set to air.

So what can we expect? Well, Kim G. makes her return as she comes back for a special appearance to call Danielle out on using her and being a bad friend.

Other serious allegations are brought up in the reunion, which include the story behind Danielle and Ashley’s texting war. Last week Teresa unleashed her anger on Danielle and this week the rest of the ladies are ready to join in. Will Danielle make it through the reunion shoot or will she flee the scene again? Find out tonight at 9/8c.

In other news, last week’s reunion episode brought in a Bravo housewives best at 3.9 million viewers, making it the most watched housewives episode in the history of the Bravo network.

Back to tonight’s episode, Andy Cohen did a new interview with E! online during which he assured us the part 2 of the reunion would shock us even more than the first (Is this even possible?).

“What I’ll tell you is that Jacqueline has something of an epiphany somewhere through the taping and her epiphany is really going to surprise people,” said Andy to E!. “Two things happen that I never would expect to happen in million years. Literally, the shots of me, my mouth is on the floor.”

Interesting words from Andy. Could Jacqueline be the housewife that will reportedly leave the show forever? Guess we’ll find out tonight!

A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.

Danielle Staub

The finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey titled ‘The Heads of Family Will Roll‘ airs tonight on Bravo.

After getting wrapped up in the Danielle drama for way too long, Caroline is ready to take a stand. Wanting to support her family and friends, especially Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley, who is in jeopardy of having the hair-pulling incident on her permanent record, Caroline is ready to meet face-to-face with the enemy Danielle.

Meanwhile, Danielle, still claiming to be the victim of all Housewife drama discusses who is behind the attacks with her partner-in-crime Danny. Will Caroline’s attempt to get rid of Danielle finally work or are we in for another table-flipping situation? Find out tonight at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.


In other news, it seems with the end of the Real Housewives of New Jersey in sight, Kim Granatell is desperate to keep her name in the press.

Weeks after crashing the birthday party of Danielle Staub, the two-faced trouble maker is up to a new stunt. According to RadarOnline, Kim G., who owns both a Bentley and a Ferrari, plans on buying out all of Teresa Giudice’s home items at her upcoming auction.

The reason? Well for one Kimmie is not a fan of Teresa’s, adding, “I’m going to buy everything and re-sell it on eBay.” Kim tells Radar she plans on donating the proceeds to the Emmanuel Cancer charity.

Kim G. also manages to take a parting shot at Teresa, saying: “Her things should be for sale on a folding table on Mulberry Street.” Ouch.

And finally, RadarOnline is also reporting all of the New Jersey Housewives have been banned from the North Jersey Country Club. You know, the same country club in which the whole Danielle extension yanking drama went down.

The club’s General Manager John Stanley sent out a letter to the club members on July 19 apologizing, stating the ladies are not welcome back at the club, while also calling their behavior staged.

A preview clip of the finale episode is below –

Danielle Staub

Ever since Life&Style broke the news that Bravo fired Danielle Staub from the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the question has remained is she fired or isn’t she?

Well the NYDailyNews is now confirming today that Danielle was indeed fired by Bravo, but they put it in nicer terms, stating that Bravo simply did not ask her to return.

An insider confirms to the site that Bravo has began working on the 3rd season of the hit show, and has asked Danielle’s co-stars Caroline Manzo, Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita to return.

It all went down a week after the reunion show taping. Bravo reportedly sent Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline letters asking them to return for a third season. The insider adds that Danielle did not receive a letter and, was not even aware that her co-stars had.

A source also adds that Danielle was unaware she was off the show until she read it online on Monday. As for Danielle’s cryptic non-denial message on Monday, the source says she’s not that upset because she might be getting her own solo reality show. She is said to be “working with production companies who are really interested and have talked to Bravo.”

And as for the gruesome twosome aka the two Kims, they weren’t asked back as well. The source stays this season was a bit of an audition for Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, adding that they might be asked to make guest appearances next season.

The NYDailyNews doesn’t touch on whether or not Dina Manzo was asked back. Dina left during this season because she no longer wanted to film with Danielle. Dina however posted an interesting tweet this week regarding the Danielle story – “yes, I’ve heard the news, don’t know if it’s true. Rumor has it I may not be invited if I don’t put my daughter back on air. Can u believe?”

Perhaps someone should inform Dina the show is about the women and their families. Without a husband or daughter on the show, she really isn’t bringing much to the table.

Danielle Staub and Lori MichaelsKim Granatell aka Kim G

A lot to report on the Real Housewives of New Jersey today, and when we say a lot, we mean A LOT.

We’ll start off with Danielle Staub, who hosted a party for her 48th birthday last night at NYC’s Scores strip club. The former stripper/escort however took some time away from the pole her party to talk to the press, during which she told NBC Newyork she’s in the works of creating her own spin-off reality show.

“It will definitely be a lot more of her (gal pal Lori Michaels) and I and definitely my kids,” Danielle told the site. “There will be a lot of questions that will be answered.”

And when asked about the status of her relationship with faux girlfriend Lori, “We’re exclusively committable,” answered Danielle while holding Lori’s hand. 

The HollywoodLife is also reporting today that Danielle’s former BFF, three-faced Kim Granatell, tried to crash Danielle’s strip club party last night.

According to the site, right as Danielle was about to walk into her party, Kim G., pictured above in front of Daniele’s party last night, arrived with an entire entourage in tow even though she wasn’t invited. Danielle was reportedly blindsided and refused to walk in until Kim G. was escorted off the premises. “It took a little while but Kim finally got into her black Bentley and sped off,” says the site.


Dina Manzo

Next up is Dina Manzo, who bowed out of the Bravo hit show mid season. According to the Crushable site via Life&Style magazine, Dina did not attend the recent taping of the reunion show. Dina’s reason for being a no show? She wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle.

Teresa Giudice also talked to the mag about the reunion taping. “The reunion was crazy, exhausting and unbelievable,” Teresa tells Life & Style. Andy Cohen also chimes in saying, “It was nuts, absolutely nuts!”

Life & Style reports that taping lasted nearly 12 emotionally-draining hours.

According to a Bravo press release, the reunion will be in two parts airing August 30 and September 6. The show’s finale will air August 23.

 

Teresa Giudice Children

And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.

“They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”

Teresa also shares her plan of writing another book with the magazine, while revealing she hasn’t lost all the weight she gained during her last pregnancy. “I haven’t lost it all yet!” she says. “I still have about 10 pounds to go.

Real Housewives of New Jersey

We are on episode 14 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The bad news? It was a pretty non eventful episode that only featured the highly entertaining nuttyness known as Danielle Staub for a few minutes. The good news? there’s only two more episodes left. Just two more episodes and the second season will be finally over. That is until the reunion comes around of course.

A while back, our genius reader gigi1234 had a highlarious view on what the reunion should would be like –

Dirty D [Danielle] – “Kim who, Teresa who, Manzo who?”
Dina – “I’m in such a spiritual place now I simply choose to not comment” sitting w/cat oil stains on her Dolce dress.
Jacqueline – “Yea I know Ashley has no life, no interest & is disrespectful BUT”
Chewbaca [Teresa] – “I can’t comment on the foreclures since it really only has to do w/my husbands business. You know Joe is an entremanure & aint he hot”
Caroline – will be on couch not saying a word nursing Albie”

Let’s all hope the NJ ladies can give us a great reunion show a la the Real Housewives of NYC, but please Bravo let’s not make it 3 hours. I simply don’t think I want to sit through 3 hours of everyone against Danielle.

Guess it’s time to get into last night’s episode. It starts off the Jacqueline and her hubby Chris deciding to pay the Giudices a visit at their luxurious mansion. Jacqueline mentions Joe received a DUI and is puzzled because “Joe was not drinking and was not drunk,” during their night out. Really Jacqueline? Not even one drink by Joe? Not sure I’m buying this.

Danielle and her feathered head ex-con buddy Danny are shown eating out and of course, the topic of Joe’s DUI is brought up. Before Danielle can fully dissect the issue, we are forced to listen to Joe’s lies explanation of his version of events. “I was tired, it wasn’t from drinking at all,” claims Joe.

It’s now back to Danielle and the former prostitution whore actually makes good sense when she wonders out-loud why Joe simply couldn’t call a cab, being that he could afford to. Wondering if he could actually afford to, you know following the bankruptcy and over-spending wife. Joe then tries to explain away his .11 alcohol level, saying he started downing shots once at his friend’s house, following the accident. According to the DailyRecord.com, this is a defense is known as a ”glove box defense,” or claim of drinking after an accident so a blood test reading would be invalid.

Unfortunately for Joe, the cops didn’t buy his glove box defense, with the cops stating that the witness Joe called to support his claim of drinking only after the crash ”completely lacked credibility” and ”was out and out lying.” Ouch.

It’s now back to Danielle, who believes Joe’s DUI is a result of karma. “I’m just going to continue living in the love and light that they make fun of, while their darkness rains upon them, says Danielle, who’s sex tape would be ultimately released just months after uttering these words.

And for the fans of the show who say Bravo shouldn’t have Danielle and her supporting cast on the show, well you know what they say – be careful what you wish for, as the next 55 minutes of the show will be Danielle free.

Teresa, Caroline and Jacqueline meet up and Teresa makes an interesting comment. “Since the accident, it has been a stressful time for us, cause it’s a small town, everybody talks,” states Teresa, who’s bankruptcy filing would be unveiled just months after uttering these words. If their small town was abuzz about Joe’s DUI, one can only imagine all the yapping that took place regarding their $11 mil debt.

And then randomly out of the blue, the three ladies decide that Joe’s arrest is too stressful for them to handle or something, as the talk of taking a trip to Italy is randomly brought up. This whole scene seems very staged, as Bravo PAYS for these trips taken by the housewives, including the infamous St. John trip for the NYC Housewives, and the Florida trip taken by the OC Housewives. The Atlanta housewives also took a trip for their upcoming third season. So basically, this scene is phony and the trip idea was Bravo’s.

Caroline heads over to the Brownstone to inform her bobby about the trip, and maybe it’s just me, but Al seems more and more disinterested in Caroline as the days go by. And in what seems like perfect foreshadowing, Al states he doesn’t want a trip with Teresa’s kids 18 kids running around. Jacqueline wants to bring her parents to be babysitters, while Teresa feels it would be a good idea to bring her parents “you know since that’s where they were born.” All the husbands are on board, and Italy is about to get some NJ trash coming their way! And by NJ trash, I mean the Jersey Shore cast Teresa Giudice.

CLICK HERE FOR THE REST OF THE RECAP! –

Last night brought us the 13th episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, featuring the big showdown between Danielle Staub and former BFF Kim Granatell.

After watching the drama that took place between these two, I only have three questions. Who is nuttier between the two? Who is the bigger drama queen? And did Danielle finally meet her match in Kim G?

The episode begins with the morally and financially bankrupt Giudices, who have now come up with another creative way to continue living beyond their means, even after filing bankruptcy. Joe and Teresa visit the Brownstone to plan out yet another party. This time around, it’s for baby Audriana‘s christening and Teresa declares she wants ice sculptures. Teresa then reveals that the cause of Dina not being around anymore is Danielle. Evidently their close friendship only extended to being in front of Bravo cameras.

Next up we see Danielle pull up to a hospital, and we soon find out this TMI hospital visit is for her 16-year-old daughter’s first visit to see a OB-GYN, and I find myself asking if it was really necessary for Danielle to bring the cameras around for something so private. I mean it’s bad enough Christine has Danielle for a mother, is it really necessary to have her OB-GYN appointments filmed? Are we about to see poor Christine’s pap smear? Are the other home viewers as uncomfortable for Christine as I am at this point? Thankfully, we find out this appointment was more of a talking one. Danielle decides she isn’t done embarrassing her daughter on national television and proceeds to ask her if she’s having sex or “being a good girl” rather. An embarrassed Christine refuses to answer, and we get a HPV after school special. In this scene we also find out born again virgin Danielle does not date, not surprising considering she’s too busy making sex tapes with randoms.

Christopher Manzo is playing some pool with best friend John G. who just happens to be Kim G’s son. Kim G. decides to randomly show up with some popcorn for the adult men, and immediately gives us this awkward scene when she tries to get Christoper to arrange a playdate between she and Caroline. “Umm… Why don’t we go with you,” is what Chris is able to muster up. Kim G. is game and ready to do whatever it takes to become a regular on the show Caroline Manzo’s new BFF!

It’s the day of the wedding quinceanera christening and we see Teresa getting her girls ready. “Mom, where’s my purse? Can I wear my silver Juicy Couture one?” asks diva in training Gia. Teresa shares that Joe’s a little grumpy this morning due to working long hours in the pizzeria, oops his father’s pizzeria that is of course. Me thinks Joe’s a little grumpy cause he had just gone bankrupt trying to make his wife happy, but that’s just me.
