They performed a song called “Too Close.” Not only that, but they may or not have been in a romantic relationship at the time. That whole situation is still abundantly unclear and we will probably never get the real story. This is especially true given all of the recent Danielle drama. Why delve into the past when there’s so a constant stream of new material? Oh yeah, Danielle’s past will entertain us forever and ever. Plus, there is always new information coming out of the woodwork.
Danielle Staub got an unpleasant treat while at a Halloween party last night reports TMZ.
Danielle was reportedly on the red carpet at the Halloween event in Woodridge, NJ when the process server walked up with an envelope and said, “Here, Danielle … you’ve been served.” Danielle did not seem too distraught as she simply handed her publicist the envelope.
Steve is suing Danielle for defamation as he is claiming she falsely accused him of secretly videotaping a sex romp with her. Danielle made the claims during an episode of the Bravo hit show. Steve has since stated publicly that Danielle was well aware she was being taped.
Danielle is no stranger to defamation lawsuits as she recently settled one with her ex-husband Kevin Maher. Though the settlements terms were kept confidential, sources close to Kevin have stated Danielle had to pay him a nice sum.
In other Danielle news, a new report by RadarOnline states her faux lesbian relationship with songwriting “superstar” Lori Michaels was just that – a faux lesbian relationship. A friend of the now broken up couple tells Radar that though the two women were “physical” with one another, they “were not a couple.”
“Did they have a connection? Yes. Was it was very strong through work and song? Yes. Did Danielle feel more? Yes. Did she indicate that to Lori? Yes. But Lori was never going to put herself in a place where she was going to run away with Danielle,” adds the source.
Radar adds that Danielle has wasted no time in moving on as she showed up to the Thursday night Halloween party (the same party she was served at) with a mystery man.
“Danielle is crazy about Lori, but doesn’t know she’s seeing another woman,” a source said. “Lori is a proud, openly gay woman, and the relationship with Danielle is just an amusing sidetrack for her. She’s really with Courtney.”
The source adds, “And if Danielle expects something serious and long-lasting with Lori, she’s going to end up being one heartbroken housewife.” A picture of Courtney Lynch is below courtesy NJ.com. She is the dancer on the left.
The reason? Apparently Bravo thought it was a dumb PR move. The club owner of The Funkey Monkey in Delaware tells TMZ they will now be holding a Teresa look alike contest.
The super-sized Real Housewives of New Jersey part 1 reunion episode aired last night. The good news? With the exception of some of our brain cells, the show ended with no casualties.
For some odd reason, I assumed the highly promoted “fight scene” between Teresa, Danielle and innocent bystander Andy, would occur in part 2 of the reunion set to air next week, but thanks to the ape-like animal instincts of Teresa Giudice, all the drama went down within the first 20 minutes of the show!
The reunion started out with host Andy Cohen greeting each of the ladies, while issuing them phony compliments, buttering them up for the madness that is about to ensue. Andy decides to ask the ladies about that other little Jersey show aka the Jersey Shore, and Teresa, who likes to request an occasional spanking on her bottom in public, immediately lets us know she does not approve. When asked why, Teresa reveals one of the female cast members jumped into bed with a guy on the show after barely knowing him.
All was going well until Teresa decided to take a dig at Danielle 2 minutes into the show. “I think Danielle could relate to them, right Danielle? Because after a week you met Steve, you slept with him in my Shore house, in front of your kids. That was okay, right, right?” Danielle calmly refers to Teresa as insane, and Teresa retorts by calling Danielle a pig. Jacqueline chimes in, stating that Danielle’s kids heard her having sex with her ex Steve on that faithful day. More on Danielle’s kids later, as we will discover their mother’s actions is taking a toll on them.
Andy decides to ask the ladies how their kids are dealing with the notoriety of the show. Danielle immediately lets us know her kids are doing amazingly well, you know, despite the fact that their prostitution whore of a mother is on national television acting loony, and released a sex tape just a few months ago.
Danielle is accused of not congratulating Jacqueline when she had her baby boy. So she congratulates Jacqueline, who fake accepts the congrats. Dina Manzo‘s name comes up, and the big topic of last year’s reunion show is brought up, which was the accusation by the other ladies that Danielle did something very awful to Dina. Dina has since come out this year, stating in a national magazine that Danielle offered unsolicited help to her ex-husband to try to have her daughter taken away from her. But what we didn’t know is that following the publication of Dina’s interview with Life&Style magazine, Danielle had her lawyers issue a gag order to Dina, forbidding her from discussing Danielle’s role in whole issue.
“We can’t talk about it. Can’t talk about it! End, done, next,” proclaims Caroline Manzo. Danielle doesn’t yield to Caroline’s command and continues to discuss the issue. “Do not speak of my sister! Did you hear what I said? Do not speak of my sister, she is not here!” screams Caroline.
And I have nothing against Caroline, but at this point I’m trying to figure out who died and made her authority over what can and cannot be discussed. Yes, I understand she wants to defend her sister, but that sister was a part of the show this season, and because she chose not to attend the reunion doesn’t make her exempt from discussion. Caroline came off as a major bully in this scene.
Some more words are exchanged amongst the ladies, and Teresa brings up the fact that Danielle failed to acknowledge Jacqueline’s son. “Do you acknowledge your nephew?” are the words uttered by Danielle, obviously meant to get a reaction out of Teresa. “Yes of course I did,” calmly replied Teresa before giving us a delayed reaction by going into an extreme rage! “Do not bring up my family!” screamed out a very angry Teresa. “You bitch, you f*cking bitch,you piece of sh*t, you motherf*cker,” were the words of Teresa, who I found out last night is actually college educated with a marketing degree.
Andy Cohen even got a powerful shove from the angry Teresa as he tried to hold her back from Danielle, who calmly walked off the stage. Okay, yes Danielle tried to push Teresa’s buttons but Teresa’s reaction was over the top, uncalled for, and pretty much a very unnecessary sequel to last season’s table flipping. Let’s assume Danielle’s accusation is untrue, why react like a lunatic? By now, we all realize what a trouble maker and sh*t stirrer Danielle is, why give her that reaction? It seems to me that Teresa’s over the top reaction as more to do with the other issues going on in her life at the moment.
We are back from commercial break and we see Caroline, who looks a bit mortified, attempting to calm down an enraged Teresa backstage. Danielle wonders out-loud why her life and past is fair game, but she’s not allowed to bring up their dirt, which is a sorta valid point. “It’s true, she didn’t even acknowledge her nephew,” says Danielle to her new posse.
Back on stage, Andy Cohen grows some balls, albeit very little balls according to the good folks at AbsurdtoSublime, when he tells Teresa she must keep her animal rage in check! Danielle is backstage relishing in her role as a victim, while being consoled by her ever changing posse. With a hug from her rumored lesbian superstar superhero girlfriend Lori Michaels, Danielle is ready to face her foes once again.
Tonight is the highly anticipated reunion smackdown of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The Jersey ladies are gathered together for the first time in over a year, with the exception of Dina Manzo, who exited the show mid-season because of Danielle Staub. Despite Dina’s absence, she is still the topic of conversation among the housewives and Teresa has no problem putting all of the blame on Danielle.
A video preview is below that shows the aftermath of a fight between Danielle and Teresa. It seems Danielle brings up Teresa’s family, and she decides to take out her bankruptcy humiliation frustration on her. The super-sized 1 hour and 15 minutes reunion episode airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
You have all likely seen the previews by now which shows Teresa Giudice shoving host Andy Cohen as he tries to hold her back. Well, Teresa is now speaking out about her actions, trying to explain why she want ape nuts on Andy.
“I didn’t mean to shove Andy,” Teresa tells UsWeekly. “I love Andy.” On why she shoved him, she said: “When I’m attacked, I attack back. I don’t like to be held back or touched…Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don’t hold me back!”
Caroline Manzo gives her take on the reunion show as well, “There are no words,” she said. “Just no words. I could not compose a rational thought in my head for two days [after the taping]. It took me two days to regroup.”
There is also a rumor that has been going around for the past couple of weeks stating that Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice has been having an affair with a Jersey woman named Tara G. We received an email about this a while back, with someone telling us that everyone in the Giudices hometown is aware of this woman and the affair, including Teresa.
We didn’t publish this as there was no proof attached to the email. So, if there’s anyone out there with proof, photos, last names, facebook pages etc, Please feel free to email us the details using our site contact page or at [email protected].
A preview clip of the reunion show is below! –
TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & THE REUNION SHOW PART 1?
As we reported last week, sources close to the 48-year-old reality/sex tape star claim she had to find out about her firing the same way everyone else did – by reading about it online.
The NYDailyNews is now reporting today, via Life&Style magazine, that Danielle has since resorted to tormenting her still employed cast mates.
“She spends her days driving around Franklin Lakes, slowing down outside her co-stars’ houses,” an insider tells Life&Style, even adding that Danielle was spotted pulling up to co-star Caroline Manzo’s home in her white Range Rover on Aug. 5.
“Danielle pointed to Caroline’s house and said something to the other people in the car,” says an eyewitness, adding that after identifying the home to her passengers, Danielle sped off.
Another source tells the mag the other housewives, along with their children, feel vulnerable because none of them live in a gated community. “None of them needed security before,” a second source added. “But now everyone’s nervous.”
Caroline is also reported to have completed flipped out when watching the finale episode, as she was not aware Danielle brought armed men to their sit down. “It’s one thing to create silly drama for television. It’s a completely different story when you involve guns,” says the source.
In other NJ news, the very public humiliation continues for Teresa Giudice. RadarOnline uncovered some court documents from a February 2010 Chapter 7 hearing, during which Teresa claimed all of her jewelry is fake, with the exception of her wedding band.
Oddly enough, a July appraisal ordered by the court showed the value of Teresa’s wedding band as being a mere $150. So in February, Teresa states her wedding band is real, and in July, that real wedding band is appraised at $150. Seems like someone might have pulled a good ole switcharoo to avoid losing their wedding band. The same appraisal showed the value of Joe’s wedding band as being only $240.
According to Radar, Teresa told the court all the jewelry she and hubby Joe Giudice owned got stolen a couple of years ago during a break in. “It’s all costume jewelry… and if you look at what I wear, it’s all costume jewelry,” stated Teresa to the trustee attorney questioning her during the hearing.
It gets even better. Teresa told the court she got about $20,000 from the insurance company, after which the trustee lawyer reminded her she and hubby Joe filed a claim for $120,000.
“Well, I mean, you know, when you get estimates from jewelers, they always put it for more than what it is,” was Teresa’s reply.
Other revelations from the court documents include the Giudices claiming they only had $1,000 in their bank account in their bankruptcy petition filing. Joe also admitted he gets $5,000 in monthly assistance from his father. “Whenever I need it, I ask him,” Joe said.
The Giudices also claimed their home furnishings are “used.”
And finally, Danielle Staub performed her non-hit single ‘Real Close‘ alongside rumored girlfriend Lori Michaels on the PIX11 Morning News show. The hilarity is above.
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.
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.
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.
