Mark your calendars for May 16, folks. That’s when “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns. Well, at least a few of them anyway—Dina Manzo called it quits midway through last season and our favorite skin suit wearer, Danielle Staub, was ousted after last season, too. But there are some new ladies filling in their slots. First there’s Melissa Gorga, who just happens to be Teresa Giudice‘s sister-in-law. Melissa is a mother of three who wants to be a pop star and has been recording tracks with producer Keith Boles. “It’s feel good music,” he explains. The second new housewife is Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s cousin. Kathy is a mom of two and is super into throwing parties. Apparently, we have her daughter’s belly dancing themed Sweet 16 to look forward to.
But just because these new housewives are family doesn’t mean things are going to be all lovey dovey. Keep reading »
So, Heidi Montag, Jake Pavelka, and Danielle Staub walk into a bar. No, sadly, this is not a joke. Apparently, this is a new reality TV show. The three were in Los Angeles filming the series today and were photographed around a lunch table together. We have no idea what exactly the show will be, especially considering that the only thing uniting these three is that fact that they were controversy lightening rods on “The Hills,” “The Bachelor,” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” respectively. Maybe they’ll team up to fight crime? Or perhaps this is a new-fangled “Three’s Company”? Or a porno? Your guess is as good as mine. But, gulp, we will be watching.

Former “Real Housewives of New Jersey” cast member Danielle Staub and her “singing partner,” Lori Michaels, stopped by “The Maury Povich Show” the other day. But they weren’t there for a paternity test, no sir, they were there to perform their single, “Real Close.” By George! They’ve created a new genre of music that I’m dubbing “skin suit pop.” It’s the song you sing to someone before you skin them alive. I’m thinking that she originally penned this tune for Jacqueline Laurita. Does she even need to ask why we’re so scared to be close to her? [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »
The Salahis are finding themselves unwelcomed once again. Reports are saying that the couple have not been invited back to season two of “The Real Housewives of D.C.” Bravo was hoping the attention surrounding the gatecrashing twosome would bring high ratings to the show, but now the network suspects that Michaele and Tareq are turning viewers off the series. I guess there is such a thing as too much self-promotion. [PopEater]
After the jump, other housewives who found themselves booted out when it was time for a contract renewal. Keep reading »
So, Danielle Staub is off “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” But she is not out of our lives forever. As Danielle tells it, “I’ve been approached by some very large networks and production companies that are very happy to try to steal me away from Bravo. I’m keeping my options open now.” Oh, but that’s not all she has to say. “I think people who want to see more of me might be careful what they wish for. There’s a lot more of me to come! I’m the Susan Lucci of reality TV.” True dat? [People]
Ooh! Ooh! We’ve got some ideas for Danielle. After the jump, 13 shows we’d love to see her star in. Keep reading »
