Meet the sixth housewife of D.C.

Post from the Washington Post.

Paul Wharton and Erika Gutierrez, co-hosts of the "Tie One On" cocktail fundraiser for MenzFit at -- hey, what's that camera guy doing? We thought the reality TV season was done for the summer! (Amy Argetsinger/The Washington Post)

By: Amy Argetsinger&Roxanne Roberts
This city may snooze in the depths of summer, but reality TV never sleeps.

During a week when our dance card had dried up, we got a last-minute invitation to a cocktail fundraiser for MenzFit, a nonprofit that gets struggling fellows into proper suits to compete in the job market. And, as with so many invitations lately, the grim warning was: "This event will be filmed for TV."

The cameras were there all right, on the rooftop of the Donovan House hotel Thursday, circling one partygoer in particular. Paul Wharton, a local stylist and occasional TV personality (VH1, CW), hasn't been highlighted in the promos for "Real Housewives of D.C.," but he's poised to emerge as the unofficial "sixth Housewife." The flat-ironed, high-cheekboned fashionista is all over the premiere, debuting next month -- cackling as Lynda Erkiletian declares Michaele Salahi to be anorexic, then telling Michaele what Lynda said. Fun! And Thursday, a camera (labeled "HYP" -- for "Housewives" producer Half Yard Productions?) rolled on around him . . .

Now wait: It's too late for the first season of D.C. "Housewives," and too soon to shoot a second season. . . . Do we smell spinoff? Will the madness never end? We pried Wharton (pinstriped skinny pants, pointy shoes) from his frenetic airkissing. "I am in the business of TV, and D.C. is the place to be these days," he told us cryptically. "I've found a great partner in Half Yard . . . and the rest you'll have to see.".

Bethenny co-hosting The View

From Hollywood
Reality TV star, best-selling author, mother, wife and chef Bethenny Frankel will be taking on another job as a co-host of ‘The View’ next Thursday.

Frankel took to her Twitter to tease her fans in anticpation by asking, “Bethenny Co-Hosting ‘The View’ Next Thursday?” However, she couldn’t keep it secret and let everyone know that they should tune in to catch her with the other ladies next week.

But if that is too far away, she let her Twitter followers know that her show, Bethenny Getting Married?, is on tonight and showing everyone just what happened on her honeymoon.

Bethenny will be co-hosting The View next Thursday, July 22, 2010.

Is Danielle-RHONJ picked on?

From The

Posted by: Ami Angelowicz
I’ve had a couple of days to process the “unbeweavable” episode of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” that aired on Monday night. In case you missed it, it came complete with name calling, hair pulling, broken boots, dirty accusations, police reports, and of course, subsequent lawsuits. But believe it or not, I’m feeling mildly sympathetic toward Danielle Staub. Maybe all of her fears about being attacked were not unfounded after all?

I’ll admit that Danielle was acting like a total a-hole during the Posche (pronounced posh) fashion show, but I expect that from her. To her credit, she didn’t try to start anything with the ladies. What I did not expect was Teresa Giudice’s lunacy. What was she doing? Trying to start a fight so she could go home to her foreclosed mansion and tell her husband about it as foreplay? That’s sick.

And Jacqueline Laurita. Shame on her. She needs to control her daughter! I’ve always thought that Jacqueline would try to keep the peace at all costs, but her attempts to restrain Teresa and Ashley were pathetic. She even seemed to be smirking. And Ashley? Oh Ashley. Have we heard any explanation as to why that girl isn’t getting dragged by the ear to college? Higher education is what she needs to be involved in, not Danielle drama. Finally, Kim (Posche’s owner) is a two-faced beyatch! I think she set this whole dirty thing up to draw business to her stupid store.

Was Danielle overreacting for effect, shaking and crying behind a bush? For sure. Does she have the police on speed dial? Probably. Is she crazy? Definitely. But the other women had a responsibility not to kick the rabid dog, and they did anyway. No matter how mad someone makes you or how crazy they may be, that doesn’t give you the right to attack them. Shame on them for thinking the incident was funny. It was not funny; it was illegal.

Phew. So what did you think?

Silex loves Montauk

Post from

By TV Divagal
Rock the Look’s Maureen Tokeson-Martin recalls her posh weekend out in the celeb-infused Long Island getaway!

“Escaping the hustle and bustle of New York City every once in a while is a must. So last weekend, my husband and I hopped into our pick-up truck for a three hour drive to Montauk, N.Y.

Located at the northern tip of Long Island within the city of East Hampton, Montauk has the fourth oldest lighthouse in the United States and a population under 4,000. Of course, most of those just happen to be the rich and famous.

We didn’t score an invitation to Robert DeNiro’s oceanfront home in town, but we did nestle into Panoramic View for 48 hours of pure relaxation.

This exclusive resort offers studios to two-bedroom units and beach houses for rent along with luxury residences. Think VIP ocean views, crisp cream linens, hot tub! And we weren’t the only ones spotted enjoying our mini-vacay.

“The floor plans are great for families and you can chose studios or multiple bedroom units, depending on how many kids and people you have along for the ride,” The Real Housewives of New York City’s Alex McCord, who was there with her devoted hubby Simon, told us.

“It is incredibly quiet with all the amenities of Montauk just a five minute drive away. You have autonomy and privacy without a typical ever-present resort staff, but the conveniences you do want such as towel service at the beach and pool and housekeeping are provided.”

Private beaches, and famous neighbors, plus hanging with The Real Housewives. Who wouldn’t love that?

Steve is suing Danielle-RHONJ

Funny article from Chicago Now about Steve and Danielle.

By: Jenn Sale
Stumble....Get your scorecard out, let me walk you through this one...

First, Danielle took her 45 year old 26 year old boyfriend to court over a sex tape he reportedly "secretly taped" and didn't want it released. At first the injunction was successful and the judge spared us all from ever seeing that. Thanks, Judge. However bananas Danielle couldn't provide any proof to her claims, and the case was eventually dismissed.

Then the reason I now type in Braille, Danielle Staub Raw, was released at about the same time the episode "Play at Your Own Risk" was aired on Bravo. In this episode you'll remember that Danielle was crying to her new extras paid by Bravo friends that Steve violated her and taped her secretly. And we later find out that it was Danielle that taped herself doing nasty things to her naughty bits on her cell phone and sent them via text.

Ooops, just spewed my coffee...hang on a sec.

So now, Steve's all mad that Danielle called him a creeper on national TV, and is suing her for defamation. Steve boo-hoo'ed to Radar Online..

"I have people come up to me in restaurants telling me I'm going to hell, I'm not a good person. I try to explain to people I didn't do anything wrong. She would send me video texts of her playing with her self, I have nothing to do with that."

Ok, people are probably telling you you're going to hell because you tapped that demonic albatross in the first place. I wouldn't sweat it, dude. Just dip it in Purell twice daily, go to church every Sunday, and you should be fine in about 5 years.

At this point, all of this court nonsense is getting re-DONK-ulous! Kind of makes you wish for the simpler and quaint times of Jay Photoglou and Gretchen Rossi, doesn't it?

Aside from a dedicated workout routine, the former model stays in shape with a balanced diet and admits her fast metabolism is definitely an asset!
Kelly Bensimon looked better than ever when she turned up in an alice + olivia get-up at the alice + olivia M.A.C. launch party at Beauty Bar in NYC on Jul. 14 — I was dying to know what her secret is! Lately we’ve spotted the reality star jogging all over NYC, but there’s something behind her vigorous workout routine — she’s actually training five days a week for a 13 mile marathon. Kelly says when it comes to her diet, she usually follows a six day plan. “I eat healthy and then on the seventh day I eat whatever I want,” she said.

“My largest meal is lunch and then I’ll have a lighter dinner, I eat a lot of carbs at lunch,” she said. Kelly, who normally eats rice with vegetables and tofu chicken or shrimp, admits her fast metabolism definitely contributes to her trim figure and her ability to chow down!

Teresa and Joe in trouble with bankruptcy trustee

From DBKP about Joe and Teresa in hot water financially.

Fresh on the heels of Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Danielle Staub’s attorney claiming he’ll seek restraining orders against cast members Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita–which should make for a rather interesting filming of the second season reunion episode, with Danielle beamed in via satellite from her bulletproof bubble located in a separate studio–the Wall Street Journal reported Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe’s “fresh start” Chapter Seven bankruptcy has hit a major roadblock. Part of the roadblock, the rather bizarre Chapter Seven bankruptcy papers Joe and Teresa filed on October 29, 2009 where Joe and Teresa claimed they owed $11 million, $7 million unsecured, with Joe and Teresa’s annual income $79,000.

According to the WSJ, the court appointed trustee is planning to auction off Teresa and Joe’s personal belongings from their Towaco, N.J. mansion on August 22nd.

A hat tip is in order for I’m Just Sayin who discovered the Wall Street article and Teresa Giudice’s entry at the site Smoking Gun.

Wall Street Journal:

Court papers show that the Bravo reality TV star and her husband, who filed for bankruptcy protection last fall, are facing a lawsuit to prevent them from taking advantage of the debt discharge available to individuals under the Bankruptcy Code. According to Chapter 7 trustee John Sywilok, tasked with rounding up the couple’s assets and distributing the proceeds to creditors, the Giudices allegedly concealed key documents about their finances and business transactions.

According to the WSJ, Sywilok accuses Joe and Teresa of hiding interests in a pizza parlor, laundromat, Teresa’s TG Fabulicious Clothing and Accessories Line and Teresa’s cookbook, The Skinny Italian. Sywilok alleges Teresa and Joe made false statements, under oath, about their assets, income, and expenses.

The site Smoking Gun posted Sywilok’s court documents.

Smoking Gun has more info including:

A court-appointed trustee has accused the bankrupt star of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reality TV show of lying under oath about her financial condition, concealing documents, and failing to disclose her interest in several businesses. As such, Teresa Giudice (and her husband Giuseppe) should not have their case formally discharged, according to a U.S. Bankruptcy Court complaint filed by lawyer John Sywilok, who was appointed to oversee the Chapter 7 action.

According the court documents filed by the trustee, the documents were filed on are shortly after July 1, 2010.

-On October 29, 2009, Teresa and Joe (Giuseppe) Giuduce filed Chapter Seven Bankruptcy at a Federal Court.

-The Office of the United State Trustee appointed John W. Sywilok as trustee, on or around October 29.

-Sywilok’s deadline to file a complaint was originally January 29, 2010. The deadline was extended twice to July 1, 2010.

-The trustee stated Teresa and Joe had been involved in “certain litigation” prior to filing the bankruptcy petition, which according to the trustee, was the “impetus” for Teresa and Joe filing Chapter Seven.

-The trustee stated Joe and Teresa were owners or limited owners of property which were on the “eve of foreclosure”.

-The trustee noted Teresa was involved a reality show, Real Housewives of New Jersey, with an employment contract to appear on the show. Teresa received income from “appearances” and her book, Skinny Italian which was written prior to filing Chapter Seven bankruptcy.

-The trustee alleges Teresa and Joe concealed documents, records, and papers which their true financial condition or business transactions could be ascertained.

-Teresa and Joe made false oaths when filing the Chapter Seven petition which include but are not limited to income, expenses, and assets.

-Teresa and Joe failed to disclose their interest in real properties and businesses.

In short, the trustee asked the court to deny the discharge of Joe and Teresa’s Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition. Not a “fresh start” but a “starting over” for Joe and Teresa and their attempts to file bankruptcy.

Which leads back to the Chapter Seven bankruptcy petition filed by Teresa and Joe on October 29, 2009.
Court documents posted at the site Absurd to Sublime.

In the Chapter Seven petition Teresa and Joe stated they owed $2,582,376,83 in secured claims. An example of a secured claim is a note secured by a deed of trust or mortgage on real property

Teresa and Joe stated they owed an astounding $6,127,454.51 in unsecured claims.

Unsecured Claim
A claim or debt for which a creditor holds no special assurance of payment, unlike a mortgage or lien; a debt for which credit was extended based solely upon the creditor’s assessment of the debtor’s future ability to pay.

Teresa and Joe stated on the petition that their monthly income at the time when they filed the filed petition was $16,583.33 which included $3,250 a month in income for Joe, $3,333.33 paid to Teresa by Bravo, and $10,000 from “family members”. Included the petition Teresa and Joe’s monthly expenses, $16,582.00 which included a $12,362 house payment. According to Teresa and Joe’s monthly take home pay and expenses, Joe and Teresa were left with $1.33 after paying their expenses. Missing from the “take home pay”, any mention or income from Teresa’s appearances or income (advance book commission) from Teresa’s Skinny Italian cookbook. In businesses owned, no mention of a pizza parlor, laundromat, or Teresa’s clothing line.

On July 4th, the New York Post reported Joe’s former business partner alleges Joe engaged in forgery and that the IRS is currently investigating Joe’s business interests.

New York Post:

Joe Mastropole, who owned property with Joe Giudice, gave him a $586,000 loan secured by three East Orange, NJ, buildings. Giudice paid back only $300,000 with the balance due in December 2007.

But Giudice forged Mastropole’s name on a June 2007 document saying the mortgage was paid, Mastropole charges in a lawsuit. The witnesses to Mastropole’s supposed signature were two of Giudice’s employees, court papers say.

Mastropole won an Oct. 23, 2009, judgment in his case, which is now in dispute because the Giudices filed for bankruptcy just days later. They left a trail of debt, including money owed on mortgages and to department stores and a fertility clinic.

In the court documents the trustee stated Teresa and Joe had been involved in “certain litigation” prior to filing the bankruptcy petition, which according to the trustee, was the “impetus” for Teresa and Joe filing Chapter Seven. According to the New York Post, Teresa and Joe filed for bankruptcy six days after Matropole won his suit against Joe.

According to the WSJ, the trustee intends to auction off Teresa and Joe’s personal property on August 22nd. When you file for Chapter 7 there are personal items which you can claim as “exempt”, meaning the court will decide whether they can be auctioned them off to pay your creditors. Joe and Teresa claimed they had $24,150 in personal property including “dogs” worth $600.00. Joe’s Movado Watch worth $500, Teresa’s wedding rings worth $400 and costume jewelry the Giudice’s valued at $750.. Also included, go-carts, a lawn mower, kitchen table and chairs, tools, a swing set, clothing, televisions, den, living room, and bedroom furniture and computers. Three properties which the Giudice’s owned or had 50% ownership. In the court documents Joe and Teresa listed every single personal item including the go-carts as exempt except the three properties.

According to the WSJ, “up for grabs” at the auction:

Next month, the trustee is aiming to hold a public auction of the contents filling the family’s newly built Towaco, N.J. mansion.

Up for grabs at the Aug. 22 auction are home furnishings, accessories, tools and a boat.

Danielle had a listening party last night

Danielle and Lori performed last night at Red Velvet, wonder how the reviews were?

Teresa-RHONJ and her critics

From the Jewish Journal.

Posted by Ilana Angel
I find this show painful to watch. I will go as far as to say that I am embarrassed I even watch this show. It is mortifying for the ladies, their families, their children, and themselves. Let’s start with the facts, Teresa is vile, and if I were at that party, I would have decked her.

Danielle is pathetic, and while she is out for fame, there is no way on earth that this woman is a good enough actress to have been faking her performance this week. I have not been shy about saying I think Danielle is a skank, but this week I’m on Team Danielle for the first time.

There is no point in going through the entire episode because it’s simply too gross, but let’s make a few things clear about these ladies of New Jersey. The women we loved in the beginning, the same ladies who we wanted to live next door, are now just a bunch of bitches.

Danielle: This chick is a whore. Who cares? There are worse things to be than a whore. I can be friends with a whore, however I can’t be friends with a liar, or someone who endangers her children. She is not innocent, and her history with these women is now coming into play big time.

That said, Danielle did not deserve what Teresa did to her in this weeks episode. It made me question all the times I thought she needed to be locked up, and wonder if maybe it’s really not all Danielle. That Bravo is continuing to broadcast this show is insane. At some pint should they not be decent?

Jacqueline is an idiot. She is an uneducated moron who married well. She got pregnant as a child, and how she got to where she is, I would imagine is quite similar to the path that Danielle took. She started out as the sweet one, and in the end she is simply the stupid one.

Teresa is a piece of garbage. Seriously, if someone needs to say all the time how nice and great they are, chances are it’s probably not true. The only thing more horrific than her behavior at the event, was her recounting what happened to her husband Joe.

It’s like dumb and dumber with these two. They are trash and it pisses me off they are on television. They spent money so freely, knowing they were filing bankruptcy, and that says everything we need to know about who they are. Any good thoughts about this woman are gone.

Teresa is an instigator and a bitch. She is a fur wearing, animal torturing, lying piece of white trash who happens to have money. Correction, had money. Teresa’s actions on this week’s show ended my love affair with the ladies of New Jersey. I am not watching anymore

Caroline tries to stay clean and out of the drama, but I’m not sure she can stay clean for much longer. She may not be in the fire, but is fanning the flames from the sidelines and like she says, if you hang around with garbage long enough, you start to stink. Hey Caroline, you stink.

I am not going to watch these chicks anymore. I will tune in for the reunion show because that will be interesting, but my weekly participation has come to an end. I have nothing to say to these women but to their children, you’ll all make it out okay if you keep the faith

Teresa Guidice brings in the fans at Borders Books in Fairfield

Article from the Fairfield Patch.

By Nancy DePalma
If you're not familiar with the Bravo reality TV series, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey," then you might as well be living under a rock. At least that's the way it seemed Thursday night at the Post Road Borders, which was bursting at the seams with "Housewives' " fans. Teresa Giudice, the spunky Italian known for her table tossing, was in town signing copies of her new book "Skinny Italian." The book, a cookbook featuring healthy versions of Italian recipes, also dishes out a few juicy tidbits from the show and her "real" life along with the family recipes.

The one thing that wasn't skinny? The crowd, which Borders staff estimated at about 300 to 400 people. Craig Kennedy, a Borders' employee, said he "lost count after 300." Another employee seemed surprised by the crowd, mentioning that Jill Zarin from the "Real Housewives of New York City" didn't draw nearly the numbers Giudice did.

It was clear from Thursday's event that fans of the show love, love, love (Teresa's catch phrase) Giudice. Though the signing was scheduled for 7 p.m., fans began lining up at 5:30 p.m. From "She's so tiny" to "She's so nice," fans of all ages were squealing with delight after meeting Giudice. While the event drew a large number of female fans, men were also in attendance. One in particular, Stan Tobin, came with his wife Jennifer and their daughter Caroline.

"She's my favorite on the show, " said Caroline, who was turned on to it by her father. Stan was surprised to see so many people in attendance but said there was just "something about Teresa" that draws people. While the Tobins planned to purchase the book they, like many others, were disappointed to learn that the store's copies were sold out by 5:30 p.m. "It looks like a good book," said Jennifer Tobin, who is both Italian and from New Jersey like Giudice.

The Fairfield signing marked the first time Giudice had been in Connecticut. She even tweeted during the signing to say how much she loved it here. Her assistant, Robyn Polay, was delighted with the turnout but wasn't surprised. "Teresa finds a way to connect with everyone and people love her," she said.

While Thursday's signing is Giudice's only Connecticut appearance, she will be signing again through the weekend in her home state of New Jersey in addition to events at restaurants and boutiques in the tri-state area. For information on her appearances, visit

Will Kelly and Bethenny bond over being moms

From Digital Spy.

By Lara Martin
Real Housewives Of New York City star Kelly Bensimon has reportedly said that she is happy she and co-star Bethenny Frankel have something to bond over.

The reality star has two children with ex-husband Gilles Bensimon, while Frankel gave birth to daughter Bryn in May.

Speaking to E! Online, she said: "We haven't been in touch, because we're not filming anymore but her value system has changed.

"I can be sensationalistic on camera, but my children are the most important things to me. So I'm happy that now we have something to bond over."

Bensimon added that she is still deciding whether to return for another season of Housewives, explaining: "The deciding factor is really just being able to celebrate these women - I don't want to fight with people.

"That's really like the big deciding factor, if it's going to be authentic. If it's not authentic, I don't want to be a part of that."

Jewish Journal not a BGM fan

Article from the Jewish Journal.

Posted by Ilana Angel
Let me begin this blog by saying that I think Bethenny Frankel is mortifying, and should no longer be on television. I watched her wedding, and wished her well, but seriously people, this chick is out of control. If you love her, just don’t read it. It’s probably best.

I’m not saying anything about her wedding because it was her special day, and good for her. The peeing in a bucket, whoring herself to the paparazzi, being rude to her new husband, self-absorbed outbreaks, and overall nastiness will not be commented on by me.

We arrive in St. Barts with Bethenny and Jason for their honeymoon. God forbid this chick does anything in private, so here we go. Her voice is grating in my nerves and I can’t help but think that the piecing screech of Jill would be welcome right now, if got Bethenny to shut up.

They decide to take a swim and Bethenny strips down and jumps in naked. How is it possible that Jason was annoyed she would walk around in a thong in front of Max, but she can strip down in front of a cameraman and skinny dip? This show screams, “watch us! we’re fake!”.

Bethenny is complaining about how ugly she is, and Jason is being charming. He calls her Mamma, which is sweet. You forget for a minute that he is a celebrity whore just like her. Sidebar: A reader of mine wrote to say he has already moved out of the house. Interesting.

An animal of some kind has wondered into their room and pooped on the floor. She is freaked out and thinks she might puke. Really? Wait until your baby starts projectile vomiting while having diarrhea. This chick needs a reality check and I’m not sure she can handle it.

Jason is waxing her stomach and all I want to do it shut off the television. This chick is out of control and nothing reads authentic about her. She is an annoying caricature and incredibly rude to her husband. I think he’ll be out of there pretty fast, or he’ll stay and be miserable.

They are talking about babies and have no clue. They are incredibly unprepared for what their lives will become. You can love your baby more that anything on the planet, but that does not make it any easier. Raising kids is hard, and it gets harder with every year.

Jason is taking a wind surfing lesson and Bethenny has another fake cry episode. She is a poser. I don’t buy it when she cries. She is always complaining about how hard her life was. Blah, blah, blah. I think Bethenny has created stories in her head, which she now believes.

Question: If Bethenny’s mother is so horrible, why isn’t she talking smack about Bethenny for money? It makes no sense. Perhaps her mother is mortified by her daughter, and wants nothing to do with her? Maybe Mommy Dearest is more classy than trashy.

We are now going to spend forever watching Bethenny and Jason eat. For ten minutes, we are watching them eat, with nothing to really say to each other, and both of them so aware of the camera that you half expect them to turn to the cameraman and offer him a taste.

They are at their last dinner in St. Barts and I’m bored. It’s the same thing over and over because they have nothing to talk about. The entire time, Jason talked about how he wants to be involved. Cut to New York and Bethenny is doing everything for the baby’s room without Jason.

She selects every single piece of furniture for the baby’s room, without Jason. This chick is just not cool, or interesting, or nice. I think that is the bottom line with Bethenny. She is simply not nice. She is selfish and garish and I really hope there is not a follow up to this show.

We’re now back in therapy listening to Bethenny complaining. Does she think she is the only woman to have a baby? Get married? Have issues with her parents? She’s a loon who lives in Bethennyville where the only thing that matters is Bethenny, which is not that cute.

It’s yet another naked photo shoot with Bethenny. I’m going to go fold some laundry and make a cup of tea. I’ll be back in a minute. Okay good. Bethenny is at a doctor’s appointment and surprise, surprise she decided to let Jason go too! So sweet. Whatever.

Next week the baby comes. It will be interesting to see how she makes the birth of the little girl all about her, and not at all about Jason or the baby. She tells Jason the baby’s room is apple green and he is surprised. It’s sad that he finds out she did it all without him, in front of us.

I wonder if Bethenny’s mother was at her first wedding. I’ve gotten emails from people who know Bethenny from childhood and think she is full of crap. We’ll never really know and it’s okay
