Teresa comments on her bankruptcy

Teresa explains her bankruptcy.

By Vicki Hyman/The Star-Ledger

"Real Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice says she and and husband Joe are looking at their recently-uncovered bankruptcy filing as a "fresh start."

“While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion,” she tells People magazine. “What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband’s real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a ‘fresh start.’”

The bankruptcy papers list $8.7 million in liabilities, including $2.6 million in mortgages on their three homes, including the huge mansion in Towaco, and $6.1 owed to credit card companies, high-end department stores, and banks for Joe's real estate dealings, several of which are in East Orange.

As for the "scrutiny and distortion," It's true that the Giudices took out a huge mortgage for their Towaco mansion in September 2008, just as the real estate bubble burst, but it's kind of hard to overlook the profligate spending depicted on the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" so far this season, considering they had one foreclosure pending on a home they owned in Lincoln Park before they even started shooting the second season. Several other collection proceedings were instigated against the couple during filming of the second season.

“When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes,” Giudice says. “We are in that process.”

Meanwhile, Dina Manzo, Giudice's pal and "Real Housewives" co-star, told the day the New York Post broke the news that she believes the bankruptcy reports are the work of a "hater."

"I think I would know if she was in that kind of trouble," Dina says. "And I think it's all kind of fabricated by a hater out there."

Catherine Ommanney-RHODC splits with hubby

Here is an article from The Reliable Source-Washington Post about one of the RHODC getting a divorce.

By: Roxanne Roberts & Amy Argetsinger

Real Housewives of D.C.'s Catherine Ommanney and husband Charles split, even before show airs.

Even before the series airs, one of "The Real Housewives of D.C." is on her way to becoming an ex-wife.

Catherine Ashley Ommanney, one of five local women that a TV crew tracked for several months over the past year, is expected to be announced soon as a cast member of the hit Bravo franchise's upcoming Beltway edition. And we've learned that she and her husband, veteran Newsweek photographer Charles Ommanney, have recently separated.

"There's no question that having a television crew in their home all those months was a huge strain," a friend of the couple told us.

Reality TV can be hard on relationships -- both LuAnn de Lesseps of "The Real Housewives of New York City" and Tamra Barney of the original "Real Housewives of Orange County" split with their husbands after the show catapulted them to fame.

When reality TV entered her life, Ommanney was both extremely new to her marriage and extremely new to Washington. Few in D.C. cocktail culture had heard of the blond, British mother of two when her name surfaced in connection with the show's taping last year. And it was only in the summer of 2008 that she wed the prizewinning photojournalist, after a brief courtship in England, and followed him to the States.

Sources close to the production have described Ommanney as well-liked by the rest of the cast, and by most indications she hasn't provided as much drama as, say, her White House-dinner-crashing co-star Michaele Salahi. (Bravo hasn't officialy unveiled the cast, but other presumed stars include McLean socialite and mom Mary Amons, D.C. real estate agent Stacie Turner and modeling agency owner Lynda Erkiletian.)

Yet, as we reported last month, Ommanney does have a flair for the sensational: In 2006, when she was known as Catherine Davies, Ommanney blabbed to a British tabloid about her brief make-out session with much-younger Prince Harry. And friends say she has a dishy memoir in the works.

Danielle has another sex tape

Check out this article from The Hollywood Gossip about Danielle and her sex tapes.

by Hilton Hater
We already know that the past of Danielle Staub is littered with drugs, prostitution and arrest records.

But might it also be filled with multiple sex tapes?!?

In June 2009, this Real Housewife of New Jersey successfully used the legal system to block a video of her and ex-boyfriend Steve Zalewski getting it on. Raunchy case closed, right? Apparently not.

TMZ reports that Hustler Inc. has uncovered another 75-minute tape of the Garden State's most reviled reality star spreading her legs for mystery man. It was allegedly shot in September, months after the aforementioned case was settled.

It won't be long until we have confirmation of this tape's existence: it's scheduled to be released on June 14. That's in less than a week!

Speaking of Staub, Zalewski once said: "Not only does she want to have sex all the time, but she loves the thrill of doing it in public places, where she might get caught.

"She wanted to make love in restaurant bathrooms every time we went out - she'd get excited and say, 'The people can hear you doing it outside!'"

Soon, they may be seeing Danielle doing it inside. Yuck!

Details about Teresa's bankruptcy

Article from TV Watch-People about Teresa's financial woes.

By:Charlotte Triggs

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is breaking her silence after it was discovered that she and her husband Joe filed for bankruptcy.

“While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion,” Giudice says in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband’s real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a ‘fresh start.’”

Indeed court papers filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark, N.J., show that Giudice, 38, and her husband filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which requires liquidation of assets in order to pay creditors, in October of last year.

Papers also show that the couple had to undergo credit counseling, and were awarded a temporary stay on payments for their Cadillac Escalade and mortgage payments for properties.

In the documents filed, the pair declared their personal assets, which include real property and personal property, as $2,261,150. But their liabilities — $8,709,831.34 — far exceeded that number.
In addition, the couple had to assess their monthly income. Combining Joe’s salary as owner of G&G Stucco and Stone Specialist in Clifton, N.J., with Teresa’s income from Bravo and “monthly assistance from family members,” that number totaled $16,583.33. Their expenditures, including their mortgage, food, clothing, dry cleaning, health insurance and other expenses, total $16,582.

The couple owes more than $33,000 on various store credit cards, $85,000 for home repairs and $91,000 for materials used to build their new home.

During the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giudice, who famously flipped a table on the show, and her family moved into their $1.7 million mansion in Towaco, N.J. The reality star, who was often filmed treating her daughters to new clothing and expensive toys, was also depicted flashing stacks of cash while furnishing the house. And in a recent episode on the second season, she boasted of spending significant funds on her daughter Gia‘s spa birthday party.

“When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes,” Giudice says. “We are in that process.”

Jill calls the cops

Check out this article.

TV Examiner
Katrina K Wheeler

Jill Zarin and other Real Housewives - APJill Zarin who is a cast member on the hit Bravo reality TV show The Real Housewives of New York City was forced to call the police over the weekend after receiving threats and being harassed.

PopEater reports Zarin saying via her Facebook page: "We are being harassed and threatened by a family from Chicago and Alabama. We have contacted authorities. I will block anyone who is linked to them per postal service law enforcement until they finish investigation. This is a serious crime and all evidence has been handed over. If you are involved in anyway. I suggest you stop. Enough is enough. It is NOT funny or a joke."

Zarin also posted on her Twitter page:

"Someone posted my address and told people to send me threatening mail. She and others did. Using the US Postal service is a serious crime."

What do you think of what Zarin is reportedly going through?

That was last year,this year I got alot to say

The latest RHONJ starts with Theresa taking Gia for an audition in a Christian Slater film, same old stage mom crap. Theresa talks up all the other parents waiting at the audition. Danielle and Kim G. talk about Danny calling Christopher a faggot at the cancer event, Kim G. did not like that. Danielle was unapologetic for Danny's behavior and seemed put off. Kim G. runs into Jacqueline at the nail salon and Kim brings up Danielle. Jacqueline tells her that if she criticizes Danielle she will get a bad reaction.  Kim G. has a party for Danielle's birthday and mentions Danny's slur again to Danielle.  She starts to cry and moan about how the Manzo's would love to see this happen to her. Danielle is annoyed and it shows.

Ashley sends Danielle a text telling her off but not threatening her. Danielle tells Kim G., her new BFF how Ashley is threatening her. Danielle ponders about calling the police and getting a restraining order.  Theresa and Jacqueline have lunch and Ashley threatening Danielle is brought up. Ashley comes to the lunch and tells her mom that she sent texts but is not going to hurt her. Jacqueline asks Ashley if she has a Facebook about hating Danielle, Ashley says yeah and Jacqueline tells her to take it down and stop it. Ashley tells her boyfriend about the lunch and he tells her to take the I hate Danielle Facebook stuff down. Ashley does not seem to care what anyone thinks about her Danielle hate.

Caroline and Albert have a big dinner party for family and friends. It looks like they put out a nice spread. Theresa and Joe are almost an 1 1/2 hr. late. Caroline seems aggravated because she has to hold dinner and it throws off her serving the dinner fresh. Once they arrive and everyone settles to eat Ashley brings up Danielle. Jacqueline did not tell Chris about what has happened. Ashley tells everyone that Danielle said her arms were fat. Ashley calls Danielle square tit and something else. Dina was not at the dinner, she meet Danielle instead. Danielle has Danny waiting in the parking lot, she thinks Dina may ambush her.  When Dina arrives she does not want a drink because she is not planning on staying long. Dina tells Danielle she is done and wants nothing to do with her. Danielle trys to interrupt but Dina sushes her, Danielle gets livid and they start to spar. The show ends with them arguing in the restaurant. Not the best show, not my favorite RH franchise, hopefully it will get better. Don't forget about the RHONY reunion show Thursday.

Bethenny Interview

Interview Bethenny did with NY Magazine.

By: Emma Rosenblum

Bethenny Frankel is known as the voice of Housewives reason. While the other women flit about in their reality-TV worlds of unreality, Bethenny brings the action back down to earth, delivering punchy one-liners at the expense of their absurd antics. She took a few minutes out of her busy day — she has newborn baby and is promoting her new spinoff show for Bravo, Bethenny's Getting Married? — to talk to us about the past season, her feelings about Jill, and the true story behind Kelly in "Poison Island."

Happy end of season! What did you think of the finale?
It was definitely an interesting episode. People were commenting and tweeting to me about what I said to Ramona and Alex, saying it was really nice. And I did really mean it. And I do speak to them now, and they're part of these big things in my life. I don't know if everybody got what they wanted; a lot of people have asked me about the situation with Jill and revisited the Kelly situation. It was a crazy season.

You, in particular, had quite a tumultuous time.
My father was dying; I had a blot clot and was on bed rest; I found out I was pregnant; I got engaged — there was a lot on my plate. What you saw last night was the tail end of the Jill thing, and I was already kind of beaten up and resigned. Like a divorce, as I said — when someone sees their ex and they're just civil to them, but there's not much left to say. I wasn't heated about it; I was just numb.

It looked like neither of you ate during that lunch.
I ate, she didn't. It was awkward.

It must have been satisfying to watch the season, and have people agree with everything you've been saying all along.
That's been happening since the first season. I think it was Andy Cohen who said I was the Greek chorus. I feel like I have a lot in common with the audience, and we're always in it together. In the other week's episode with Kelly, that's why I said that thing about how I feel like I'm watching a movie, and I don't know if anyone else is watching the same movie with me. You guys are there with me, just months after.

What was that trip really like?
It was much worse in real life, what you saw was very toned down. I don't think the viewer could have handled what really happened. It was just much more intense, and I don't want to overuse the word crazy, but it was much more scary. I was worried for our safety and hers.

She wasn't really going to hurt anyone ...
No, I don't know. She was very irrational. I'm not being dramatic, I don't know. I have no idea what she's capable of. It's hard to comment on someone who's not living in the same reality that I am. It was just crazy.

Even Sonja was taken aback.
She's new to the whole thing, and she's very much not trying to ruffle anyone's feathers. Sonja's great; I really like her. She's like Chrissy from Three's Company. And she was being compassionate and we all were trying to be. But in the end we were hitting a brick wall, and it just wasn't normal.

Are there things you did this season that you regret?
I regretted the moment I called Luann a snake. I meant what I said, unfortunately, but I regretted how I handled it. At that point, I felt she was always making digs and being duplicitous. I don't feel that way anymore, so it's hard to comment now about it.

Jason seems great. How did he feel about being on the show?
He hates doing the Housewives. He thinks that it's nonsense. He doesn't want the collective of these women in our lives, and with our child, and the things we argue about, and the drama — it's just not him. In my new show, he's fully a big part of it, which he's happy to do and to support me in, but with the Housewives, he's peripheral. He frankly found it a little embarrassing, which I can understand. He'd never seen people behave this way; he'd never seen people speak to each other this way. He comes from a small town in Pennsylvania.

That kind of sounds like how Kelly always says she's from the Midwest ...
I know, like no one's ever had a one-night stand in the Midwest. It must have a very low teen-pregnancy rate out there.

What do you really think was going on with Jill this season?
Jill really wanted to come out on top of this, and she wanted to make me look bad and to have people hate me. And I think the viewers are smarter than people think, and they really pick up the nuances, and they get the gist of the entire thing. Because for her to start out the season saying to me, "My husband had cancer and you didn't care," it made me wary. I didn't know he was even sick, I just knew he was going in for a procedure. She could have called me and said, "You know, I'm going through something." So the fact that the first time I heard about that was on-camera, I immediately knew, Oh, this is what the season's going to be about.

It was sweet to see you become better friends with Ramona and Alex.
Both of them are really coming into their own. I think everyone's just digesting Ramona's craziness. I said this before: Ramona's the best kind of crazy. I think she's the star of the show, I really do. I think she's the only one they couldn't do the show without. And Alex never opened her mouth before this season.

So what's Bethennys' Getting Married? going to be like?
It's just a complete departure. It's hilarious; it's emotional; it's dramatic without having to be mean or have huge arguments. It's like a reality sitcom. It's totally me and it shows the intricacies of my life. It's way more micro.

Commenter ladygoodman asks: Do you have plans to come back next season?
It's not 100 percent, but the way I feel right now, with having a new baby and a new family, I just don't think that it's what I want to do right now. I feel like the show's peaking — it's at full tilt, and I just feel like I should leave the party when it's at its best.

NELLE777 asks: Oh, please say how you really feel about Kelly's PSA about bullying.
I really feel sorry for her. I can't even comment; it's just so absurd. She just needs to grow up. She acts like she's 16 years old. It's jaw-dropping.

Brawndo wants to know: Was Kelly leaving Poison Island her idea or was she asked to leave by the producers?
She had to leave, it wasn't really a request. No one handcuffed her, but it was like, okay, here's your flight, we're going home. And she was escorted home by a producer, flying in First Class, which shows you just how serious it was, because Bravo's not flying producers first class.

Satchelsofgold1979 asks: Do you think Jill's desire to make amends had anything to do with you getting your own show?
I think it had to do with remorse about how she was portrayed. I think it had to do with the fact that I was pregnant, you know. I don't know what her motives are; I have no idea. It's so beyond me.

Teresa is not broke, it's just a hater says Dina-RHONJ

Dina gives her take on Teresa's bankruptcy

Zap2it First
By Jethro Nededog

Reports just broke Saturday (June 5) that "Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Teresa Giudice filed bankruptcy papers showing she was $11 million in debt. But, castmate Dina Manzo tells us exclusively that the news is B.S.

"I think I would know if she was in that kind of trouble," Dina tells Zap2it. "And I think it's all kind of fabricated by a hater out there."

There is very little that the reports leave up to the imagination. According to the news, Teresa and her husband make only $79,000 a year combined and receive $10,000 a month from relatives.

Additionally, the reports say that their $1.8 million mansion in Towaco, NJ and their Jersey Shore vacation home are being foreclosed on. The news outlets also state that the Giudices have defaulted on their Cadillac Escalade and they owe $12,000 to a fertility clinic.

"I don't think that any of that's true," says Dina. "I think that's just a hater out there, maybe getting some old [information]. I mean we all have debt here and there. I know my Neiman's bill would knock your eye out."

Hm, well, it would seem that the news hits on everything that Teresa would hold dear. Could someone have engineered the whole story to get back at her?

"In my opinion, it's all someone making something up," Dina stresses.
