RHONJ- Recap 6-14-2010

The show starts with Dina and Danielle at Chakra. Dina is telling Danielle she is done and Danielle starts fighting back. Other patrons in the restaurant are staring at them as they start yelling. Danielle goes back to the book and how the Manzo's put it out there. Dina tells Danielle to stop playing victim and gets up to go, but he and Danielle keep going at it. Dina calls Danielle CRAZY which really sets her off. Dina leaves, so Danielle calls Danny and his friend John from the parking lot to join her so she can tell them what happened.

Jacqueline,Chris,Caroline,Theresa,Joe, Albie,Derek, Ashely and the kids go to a pumpkin farm. The kids feed the animals, Theresa refers to a pig as Danielle. Chris,Joe and Albie talk about inviting Derek to poker night. The show then cuts to Dina,Jacqueline and Caroline in Caroline's kitchen talking about Dina and Danielle's meeting. Dina calls her a crazy bitch a few times, Caroline calls her pure evil.

Danielle meets her friends at a restaurant including Kim G. Danielle tells the women that Dina is still sending her e-mails telling Danielle she is done with her. The e-mail is titled closure, Danielle texts back LOL, WHATEVER. Danielle calls Dina a pig.  Danielle's friends seem to agree with her.

Kim G. goes to Jacqueline's house and they talk about Dina and Danielle's meeting. Jacqueline tells Kim that Danielle has been calling Dina and texting her. Jacqueline tells Kim that Danielle is only friends with people with money and goes after that money. Jacqueline thinks Kim may be playing both sides. Jacqueline talks about how Danielle texted her daughter and said some nasty things. Kim lies and says she told Danielle not to overreact(she told her to call a lawyer and the police).

Chris and Albie get coldcuts and other provisions for the game and spend over $500.00 at the deli. Danielle goes to her friend Sue's house, her other friends are there including Kim G. Danielle talks about how Steve taped them having sex without her knowing or consenting. She has gone to court to stop it.

Jacqueline and Theresa are getting food ready for the guys poker game. Jacqueline has set up a video/audio baby monitor to eavesdrop on the guys. The guys have some sour wine and plan to give to it to Derek and tell him it is the most expensive wine and make sure he drinks it all. Jacqueline is annoyed to see Steve after what he did to Danielle, so she asks to speak to him away from the other guys. Steve tells her I did not tape her, she sent videos to his phone of her gratifying herself. Theresa says Danielle told her that she thought Steve was texting during sex and now Danielle thinks that he was controlling the cameras. Steve says Danielle dismissed the lawsuit. Steve tells the guys about what Jacqueline wanted, they don't care one bit.

A short clip on Danielle trying on lingerie, enough said. Ashley and Derek arrive. Derek drinks the sour wine and the guys laugh it up. Ashley brings food into the guys and Jacqueline says you look like grandma when she was younger(commenting on the baby monitor video). Ashley gets offended because grandma is heavy, so she goes to sit with the guys. Jacqueline and Theresa follow, Ashley and Jacqueline get into it. Jacqueline tells Ashley to get out, she grabs her clothes at the shoulder and shoves her out the door. Derek stays and looks uncomfortable. Joe comments that he has never seen Jacqueline like that. Ashley calls Jacqueline a bitch as she walks out.

Danielle meets Danny and his crew at a strip place, she has brought a lot of friends for stripper lessons. Kim G. tries out the pole out and so does Danielle. Danielle works that pole like a pro, Danielle says she was a burlesque dancer at one time. Danny is loving it and so are his friends, they start throwing $1.00 bills at Danielle as she slides up and down the pole.

Dina has decided to leave the RHONJ, I am not sure if she will be on any more episodes. That's all folks.

RHONY part 2 recap

Good write up from the LA Times of part 2 of the RHONY reunion show.

by:Yvonne Villarreal
Ever wondered what witnessing a public stoning would be like? Well, if you tuned in for Part 2 of "The Real Housewives of New York City" reunion, there was no need to wonder. The casualty wore a black dress and teal-colored suede pumps (which, if you happen to know where I can get a pair, please make use of the comments section). Her name? Jill Zarin. Her crime: a season's worth of catty behavior. Host Andy Cohen had a few of the stones -- courtesy of die-hard viewers (and Jill critics) everywhere -- lined up on his handy little flash cards. The ladies sitting nearby supplied the other stones.

And so it was. The miniseries-esque reunion laid out Jill’s many missteps and questionable behavior for all to poke and prod. Whether she contended that she's always her friends' "biggest cheerleader" in the face of accusations that she tried to sabotage Bethenny’s spinoff show or tried to justify -- and apologize for -- how she dealt with news of Bethenny's father's death, it provided minute upon minute of cringe-worthy and "who is she kidding?" moments. And a few attempts by Jill to walk off the set. If I could roll the tape as evidence, I would. I don't know if, at this point, there's any way she can recover from the backlash. There's no skating around it -- even if she rents out the rink and twirls in a hot pink outfit.

But it wasn't all sticks and stones.

The intentional comedic relief -- sorry, Kelly! -- Sonja Morgan, finally joined the mix to stir the drink with her straw self. Only she didn't even get a chance to do much stirring because attention shifted to lollipop-loving Kelly, who apparently moonlights as a spokesperson against bullies when she's not burning pancakes or warming up her vocal cords for all those high-pitched "Hi-yeeeeees."

It finally came time to get some answers on the wacky girls trip in St. John, only Kelly's answer was almost as nutty as her behavior on the trip (which Bravo was kind enough to rehash, I'm guessing, in case Jill were to demand evidence). So what was Kelly's reasoning for all the yapping about satchels of gold, cartwheels and jellybeans? She was a victim of "systematic bullying." Feel free to check if that was an epidemic in the year 1979. I know I did.

Kelly claimed that Bravo forced her to go on the trip -- which Andy repeatedly denied -- and that she contended that she doesn't consider her behavior a breakdown, but rather a breakthrough. She went on to say her involvement was meant, in her mind (the one where gummy bears aren't processed candies), to serve as a public-service announcement for victims of bullying. Again, if I could roll a tape for evidence, I would.

Cue a mentally exhausted Bethenny saying, "This is not a normal person. It’s like talking to Humpty Dumpty," as a frustrated Kelly made her way off set.

To be continued (again).

Other notable moments:

-- When Jill was asked why she had saved Bethenny's infamous voice mail for two months, Jill didn't have an answer, but Kelly did: "Maybe she wanted to hear [Bethenny's] voice." Was her mind like mid-cartwheel or something? My mind hit a virtual glass door when she said that. Satchels of gold! Satchels of gold!

-- I'm not usually a fan of reunion shows just rehashing footage from the season, but I thoroughly enjoyed the look back at some of the best zingers from the season. My favorites: "Diarrhea of the mouth is not a real ailment," "Mountain out of a holemill" (FYI, I would totally pay any amount of money to take a class in Ramonics) and Kelly's head-scratching Robin-Batman metaphor.

-- The lack of voice time for LuAnn -- although she did try.

-- Sonja's legitimate concern that one-night-stand-fearing Kelly isn't having enough sex. Maybe if Kelly popped in Barry White's -- er, LuAnn's -- CD, finding a companion wouldn't be so difficult.

So what did you think of part two of the reunion, ShowTrackers? Can Jill recover from the hostile response to her behavior this season? Was anyone else disappointed that the clip of Ramona's catwalk debut wasn't playing on loop? If Kelly is like Humpty Dumpty, are the unprocessed ingredients of jellybeans and lollipops enough to put her back together again? Share your thoughts in the comments section.

Danielle ordered to sell house

Article from Zap2It about Danielle selling her house.

By Jethro Nededog
On this season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," Danielle Staub had several meetings with a realtor when she put her house up for sale. Yes, that was a realtor and not just a therapist that does house calls. Poor thing looked so uncomfortable when Danielle burst into tears during their meetings.

In the end, Danielle decided to pull her house from the market, because she couldn't afford the much-needed repairs that would attract buyers at the price she wanted.

Now, The New Jersey Star Ledger reports that Danielle has been ordered by the courts to place the house on sale as part of her divorce proceedings. Danielle has never had the best relationships with courts. Just sayin'.

Bob Lindsay, the real estate agent for the listing, says the price has been reduced from the first time it was on the market at almost $1.5 million to what he calls an aggressive $1.095 million price tag.

According to the report, "The Tudor-style house, in the tony Horizon Heights section of Wayne [New Jersey], is more than 3,000 square feet, with a two-story entry foyer and mirror staircases, a billiard room with wet bar, a pool and cabana, a gym and the requisite in-house tanning room."

For the sake of Danielle's daughters, we hope they land in a new home very soon!

Sheree being sued by her lawyer

Blog from Access Atlanta about Sheree being sued.

by Rodney Ho
Being Sheree Whitfield’s divorce attorney is apparently hazardous to the
bottom line.

“The Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast member allegedly owes two separate law firms more than $180,000 in divorce-related fees.

She first hired Levine & Smith as her divorce attorney in 2006 against her now former husband and NFL player Bob Whitfield.

In early 2009, Steve Montalto of Levine & Smith sued Sheree, saying she owed him more than $87,000 in unpaid fees related to her divorce. That situation has not been resolved yet, based on recent court filings.

In an interview today, Montalto said she has “ignored and stonewalled any effort to respond to post-judgment discovery about her assets and income,” he said.

He has asked a judge to force her to respond and to threaten her with incarceration. “She thinks she’s above the law,” Montalto said. He also has liens against Bob, her ex husband, which he has ignored.

Her next divorce attorney, Weinstock & Scavo, began working with her in 2007.

On June 10, the firm filed a civil lawsuit in Fulton County Superior Court for $96,190.18 in fees related to her divorce. (Interest, the lawsuit said, amounted to $18,709.07 of that total.)

The impetus for this lawsuit came after Bob Whitfield sold property in Atlanta last October. He wrote in court documents that he needed to sell the property to finish paying off his original $775,000 divorce settlement agreement with Whitfield he signed in 2005.

Weinstock & Scavo recorded a lien on March 19, 2009 in favor of the firm for unpaid attorneys’ fees and expenses owed by Sheree. The law firm claimed Bob Whitfield and the people buying his property were aware of the unpaid attorney’s lien but chose to ignore it.

In citing breach of contract, the law firm said “Ms. Whitfield has acted in bad faith, has been stubbornly litigious and has caused W&S unnecessary trouble and expense entitling W&S to an award of attorneys’ fees and costs of litigation in connection with this case.”

I emailed Sheree but have not heard back. Bob is a defendant in the lawsuit as well. I emailed Bob’s attorney Alexander Rapasky, who is a defendant in the lawsuit, and have not gotten a response. I will update this if I get any response from the Whitfields or the attorney. I have also left a phone message with Weinstock & Scavo.

AUGUST 5TH is the premiere for the RHODC

Article from Zap2It about the RHODC,the ladies names and bios are included.

By Jethro Nededog
After Bravo pretended to have nothing to do with the Salahis, the network confirmed the official cast of "The Real Housewives of D.C.," which premieres on August 5 at 9 p.m. And it doesn't come as a surprise, that the Salahis made the cut.

The list includes five women in their mid-forties to early-fifties. Aside from a White House gatecrasher, the cast includes a socialite, a Brit, a highly educated real estate agent and a stylish single gal.

Here's the full list according to The Washington Post:

Michaele Salahi - Michaele, 44, and her husband Tareq are, of course, the notorious White House party crashers. Bravo cameras trailed the socialite couple into the 2009 White House Dinner, but refused to confirm that the couple was part of the new D.C. franchise. Even before the notorious stunt, the couple was known for their attention-seeking antics.

Catherine Ashley Ommanney - A British-born interior designer in her forties, Catherine is new to Washington D.C. Currently separated from her husband, Charles, an award-winning Newsweek photographer, she has only really become known when she started shooting for "Housewives." She has two daughters from a previous marriage. According to The Washington Post, Catherine showed a Salahi streak when she told a British tabloid that she once made out with Prince Harry!

Mary Amons - We may be speaking too soon, but 44-year-old Mary seems to have the real socialite cred. The daughter of a telecom exec, who married her husband, Rich, also a telecom exec. Mary is known for her style. She has been featured in Marie Claire, a segment on mothers who look like their daughters on the "Today" show and she was named to the D.C. lifestyle magazine, the Washingtonian's 2009 best-dressed list. The mother of five also founded Labels for Love, which runs a semi-annual sale with proceeds going to charity.

Stacie Turner - Stacie, 42, sounds like a smart cookie. The only African-American woman of the bunch, she spent her undergrad at Howard University and has an MBA from Harvard. She worked in marketing at BET before she switched to real estate. Her husband, Jason, formerly worked for the mayor of D.C. They have two children and live in a former church they had renovated into a mansion.

Lynda Erkiletian - Lynda owns a local artist agency called T.H.E., which claims to represent 500 models and stylists in the D.C. area. At 52 years old, she's currently single. Like Amons, she's known for her stylish flair and she was also named to the Washingtonian's 2009 best-dressed list.
