The View

Real Housewives of DC

Tonight is the long awaited premiere of Bravo’s newest housewives franchise – The Real Housewives of DC. Pictured above are the DC ladies as they visited the Today Show this week. From left to right is Mary Amos, Lynda Erkiletian, Cat Ommanney, Stacie Turner, and Michaele Salahi.

The DC Housewives have already proven to be the most controversial franchise yet all thanks to notorious cast member Michaele Salahi, who made headlines last year when she and her husband Tareq Salahi decided to crash a White House party.

As if that wasn’t enough, a new controversy hit early this week when the Washington Post reported that Michaele’s husband Tareq threw a drink on another cast member, Lynda.

Lynda, during her appearance on The View Wednesday, said it all started when she heard Tareq being verbally abusive to some Bravo execs during a press dinner in a Beverly Hills hotel. She said she tried to calm him down and he ended up tossing his wine on her. “Aside from ruining the day, he also ruined my beautiful Zac Posen couture suit!” said Lynda to the Post.

Even more interesting, Michaele admitted the incident occurred during her appearance on The View, but defended her husband, saying he was just defending her from past insults Lynda had hurled at her.

And there’s more folks! During the ladies’ View appearance, host Whoopi Goldberg, who was offstage during the segment, walked on the set, touched Michaele’s arm and told her to refocus on answering the White House party crashing question.

After finishing taping the segment, Michaele then reportedly told the producers of the show that Whoopi hit her, leading to an ugly exchange backstage between the Salahis and Whoopi. Whoopi admitted on The View this morning that words were exchanged backstage between she and the Salahis, saying Tareq began taking photos of her on his Blackberry at one point during the argument.

As for Michaele, she tells PEOPLE magazine that her experience on The View was “humiliating and torturous.”

“The first encounter I had with this woman is her grabbing my arm and telling me to change the subject,” Salahi told PEOPLE Thursday. “It was very inappropriate … They want to torture me. I didn’t know [being interviewed on the View] would be this horrific.”

Seems the DC cast will fit right in with the other franchises. A preview clip of tonight’s premiere is below –

Real Housewives of New Jersey

Tonight brings us a new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, titled ‘Don’t Drink the Holy Water.

Kim G. and Jacqueline may find common ground as Kim G. recounts the latest Danielle drama and insists that their friendship is over. Skeptical of her past two-faced behavior, Jacqueline is not quick to trust and even calls Kim G. out on her shady behavior.

Also this week, Dina Manzo makes a guest appearance as she’s named Teresa’s baby’s godmother. Will Dina’s brief return get her caught up in any Housewife drama? And finally, we get the big showdown between Danielle and Kim G. The new episode airs tonight at10/9c on Bravo.

In other Housewives news, Teresa Giudice appeared on The View talk show this morning and her appearance was nothing short of extremely humiliating as she was verbally bitchslapped by the show’s hosts.

Teresa, who seemed very excited to be going on the show according to her twitter, likely did not expect the intense interrogation she received. Right from the start, Teresa seemed tense and nervous, even stammering over her words. She was grilled by the ladies about her financial situation, and at one point during the show, host Joy Behar was just laughing at her, right in front of her.

Teresa’s appearance on the show was first preempted by the foreclosure argument she had with Danielle. The first question came from Elisabeth Hasselbeck who wanted to know how she went broke, since she is always shown spending frivolously on the show. Before Teresa could even finish stammering her words to answer Elisabeth’s question, Joy chimed in, “Is your husband a slumlord?”

And before Teresa could finish answering Joy’s slumlord question, guest host Bryant Gumbel brought up the accusations being made by Joe Giudice’s former business partner, who told PEOPLE magazine a while back that a bad economy only played a small role in the Giudices bankruptcy filing, saying living beyond their means played a big role.

After Teresa tried to put the bankruptcy blame on a bad economy and Joe’s businesses going bad, Bryant brought up a good point when he asked her if people not paying Joe rent could really be to blame for their $11 mil debt. Teresa then claimed their debt was not $11 mil and that those numbers were exaggerated by the media. Bryant asked her how much her debt was, “$10 million?” snarked Bryant to Teresa, who then replied that she did not know the exact amount.

Teresa claimed she was not aware of her huge debt because Joe kept it from her until it was absolutely necessary to tell her. I always live within my means. Always. The money was coming in from the apartment buildings so we were able to live the lifestyle that we did,” insisted Teresa. “How are you living within your means if you’re $11 mil in debt? I don’t get that,” were the next words out of Joy’s mouth.

Teresa was also asked about the foreclosure rumors, to which she said her home is not in foreclosure and has never been in foreclosure. Regarding the upcoming Aug 22 auction, she confirmed her lawyer has filed an objection. She was also asked if the ring she was wearing was real, to which she admitted it was “costume jewelry.”

When asked about the Dancing With The Stars rumors, Teresa said she could not comment on it. “You should go on Dancing With The Stars, and then have a yard sale!” exclaimed other guest host Mario Cantone. And yes folks, it was that kinda day for Teresa. I almost felt bad for her when it was all over. Almost.

Below is what Teresa tweeted after she finished taping The View

“Whew! It’s over! I knew The View wasn’t going to be a lovefest, but you gotta take the tough questions sometimes…

Thank you all for your encouraging tweets. I’m fine. I’m a tough cookie. It takes more than an old comedian to bring me down. ;)”

In case you’re wondering, the “old comedian” she’s referring to is Joy Behar. The video of Teresa’s interview has yet to hit the net, but it will be posted here the minute it appears online.

Thanks to our reader bailey78. Part of Teresa’s interview is below –



It seems like both Jon and Kate Gosselin enjoy being in the tabloids. The he-said she-said conflict between Jon and Kate continues and there is no sign of it ending anytime soon. After Kate appeared on The View as a guest host, she gave an ambiguous answer about Jon allowing girlfriend, Hailey Glassman to meet their eight kids. Jon is now responding in the media, and denies any claims of Hailey ever meeting the kids.

I’ve never brought Hailey to meet the kids,” he tells E! News, “nor do I plan on doing that anytime soon.”

Similarly, Hailey denied the rumors on her Twitter page, writing “I was never at Jon and Katezilla’s house nor did I meet the children, And nor am I in a rush to… When the truth finally comes out, the public owes Jon and I a HUGE apology, until then keep hating n being blinded, Bunch of Helen Keller’s.”

BTW: Because Helen Keller was known for being such a “hater.

A source close to both Jon and Hailey tells E! that Jon asked Kate where she’d heard about the “Hailey-meets-kids scenario”. Kate responded that she saw it “in the tabloids.” The source added, Jon will consider introducing the kids to Hailey “at the appropriate time” once the divorce is finalized.


Kate Gosselin opens up about her feelings during a speaking engagement this weekend and her appearance on The View.

At Ohio’s second annual Cleveland Women’s Show on Friday, the reality mom of eight, 34, told a crowd, “I’ve lost a lot of control in my life.”

Kate continues, “At the beginning of all of this, you’ve heard me say before, I didn’t want fans gawking, I didn’t want people gawking, I just wanted to be myself, my family.” She however went on to thank her supporters, “I have learned, I appreciate your support, I need you, I love you, thank you.”

The Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom also made her anticipated appearance on The View as a guest host on Monday. When asked about her feelings towards Jon Gosselin bringing his new girlfriend around the kids, Kate admits it is tough. “I’m not going to lie, it’s difficult, this is all difficult” says Kate. She however made it clear that she intends to take the high road, saying – “For the sake of my children, I am going to continue taking the high road.”

Kate went on to admit having a recent meltdown, “I melted down over the weekend in the privacy of my own home.”

In other news, USWeekly is reporting Jon and girlfriend Hailey Glassman were spotted was all over NYC Sunday night celebrating the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Jon was spotted at an after-party at hotspot Avenue and also at a bash at the Hotel on Rivington in NYC’s hip Lower East side.

Lauren Conrad and Spencer Pratt

First it was Kristin Cavallari all but confirming that MTV’s The Hills is fake. Now it’s Lauren Conrad’s turn. Lauren appeared on the View yesterday, and surprisingly admitted that the infamous apology phone call she received from Spencer Pratt was fake. She said she was not on the other line for that phone call.

Lauren was asked by Elisabeth Hasselbeck, “Did you feel like it was a sincere apology when it came from him?” Lauren smiled, paused and rolled her eyes before answering – “To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t on the other end of that call,” Conrad replied. “That was filmed, and I wasn’t on the other end. So I didn’t even know about it until [it was on TV]. So, no, I didn’t get an apology. He lied.”

So why did she agree to go to their wedding if she never got an apology?

“It’s hard to understand now, but a long time ago — years ago — we moved here together, and we were best friends, and we used to say, ‘Some day at our wedding….,'” Conrad said. “I just felt like it was a few hours of my time, and as much as I didn’t agree with it, I might some day regret not doing it.”

So basically Spencer never apologized for spreading those sex tape rumors. MTV should just go ahead and call this show a soap opera instead of a reality show. Are people still watching this show? I pretty much stopped watching a few seasons back.
