Teresa's Stuff Worth $51,000.00

From North

The contents of the ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa Giudice’s purported $5 million Towaco mansion are expected to fetch a little more than $51,000, according to an appraiser appointed by a bankruptcy court trustee.

Teresa Giudice, above, and her husband filed in October for Chapter 7 bankruptcy listing nearly $11 million in debt. Teresa and Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice filed in October for Chapter 7 bankruptcy listing nearly $11 million in debt.

An attorney for the Giudices counters that many of the items listed in the 21-page appraiser’s report – including the children’s beds, toys and various faux antique accessories – should not be sold.

A hearing is scheduled for Monday at U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark to determine if the Aug. 22 sale should happen.

Ramona and Elmo To Appear On Wendy Williams Show

Camille-RHOBH Getting Paid

Article from WENN.

Kelsey Grammer's estranged wife stands to receive half of the TV star's fortune - a staggering $40 million, according to U.S. reports.

The actor wed Camille Donatacci in 1997 but the former Playboy model filed for divorce last month, citing "irreconcilable differences".

Grammer subsequently filed court papers requesting that Donatacci should not be allowed to lay claim to profits from his hit show Frasier as he has sole financial interest in the series.

But according to New York Post gossip column PageSix, Donatacci is eligible for half of his $80 million estate as she part-owns his production company, Grammnet Productions.
A source tells the publication, "Camille stands to get half of all syndication of Frasier made during the years they were married. That's seven years of episodes, as well as income from other shows the company made, including Medium and Girlfriends."

In the papers filed on July 14 - two weeks after Donatacci filed for divorce - Grammer also asked for a number of property assets to be kept separate from the official split proceedings.

The actor is set to become a dad again with his new girlfriend Kayte Walsh - who at 29 is 26 years his junior. He is seeking joint legal custody of his two kids with Donatacci.

Life & Style's press release follows:
Life & Style has exclusively obtained the first photos of Bethenny Frankel in a teeny turquoise two-piece-- the newlywed's first time in a bikini since giving birth to daughter Bryn on May 8th! Bethenny looked amazing," an onlooker, who spotted Bethenny (pictured above) on August 11th in Montauk, N.Y., tells Life & Style. "She looked like she'd lost all the baby weight, and she was toned too. Even her tush was remarkable."

How has the best-selling author of Naturally Thin and Skinnygirl Dish bounced back so soon? "There's been no real drastic any­thing," Bethenny, who weighs a healthy 118 lbs, tells Life & Style. "I've really been eating, just not like a crazy person." The 5-foot-6 natu­ral-food chef has a new mantra, "Taste everything, eat nothing."

It’s episode 2 for the D.C. ladies and my husband, our assistant and I have opened some champagne and sat down together. We open with the Salahis and clearly no Housewives franchise would be complete without a big shopping spree. The first scene was the only time Michaele hasn’t bothered me so far, and it lasted all of 45 seconds. She completely lost me when she named her horse (or was it My Little Pony?) Sparkle. Are we 7-years-old?

Moving right along, Mary’s oldest daughter moved back home and brought a 150 lb. dog. And she doesn’t clean up after it. WHAT??? Sorry, I know my boys are only 4 and 6, but that is not happening and never will happen in Brooklyn. Wait, I know, give the dog its own room that can only be opened by Mary’s biometric finger lock. Done.
The coffee shop meet-up between Mary and Cat made me laugh. Yes, I know Cat’s only got little ones. So do I for that matter – but does that mean none of us can talk? No way in hell would I stand for a 23-year-old daughter who sasses back at the table and doesn’t take care of the dog — and then give her an oversized tip. Plus, I couldn’t believe she actually said she’d take her housekeeper over her husband.

Michaele planned a birthday party for Paul, and I declare we’ve gone back in time because this planning scene looked exactly like last week’s scene when the eating disorder convo happened. Sloppy editing, much?

Did I say last week that Stacie was boring? I apologize: she woke up a little this week. I loved her decision to have everyone over to Aunt Frances’s for dinner. I loved the fried chicken, the peach cobbler and I wanted to taste the Scotch and sample every side dish. I also wanted to know why Cat had a problem with the wine? We saw her bring in a bottle of wine, and doesn’t everyone know that if you are worried about what you are going to get to drink at someone’s house, you say, “let’s open this bottle I brought. I want you to taste it?” So easy, Cat! I know her hair was standing on end when she heard that southern cooks reuse their grease, but guess what, it tastes better. She couldn’t take it and she ducked out early. Badly played … once again.
Next, we got to my favorite part of the episode, where the three stooges go into the basement and measure their penises. Or not. But I really loved all three of these guys -– from Rich’s blue pocket square and his offer to leave the room, to Jason’s earnestness and Ebong’s perfect ending line. (”Just ask Lynda“) As much as I have had to say about Lynda, the girl must be doing something right.

The day of Paul’s party arrived and where was Michaele? Sorry, I don’t care who you are but if you’ve agreed not only to host someone’s party but get ready together, you need to show up on time. (Maybe she was too busy petting her little pony.) And when she finally managed to arrive, it was in a white stretch limo. Even in New York, where we’re a little flashier than D.C., a white limo is just not okay.

At the party, Lynda decided she liked Cat’s husband because “he has access to the entire city, including the Oval Office.” Not because he was cute, or witty, or British. Just because of his access. Geez, maybe she’s not Ramona. Maybe she’s Jill!! Bwahaha. (No, she’s definitely Ramona because she made the comment later on about Virginia wines, and Jill would be too scared to do that.)

At the party, Tareq made the grand gesture of sabrage (opening champagne with a sword) and accidentally-on-purpose zipped the cork straight at Lynda.

When she’s not dodging champagne corks, Lynda does need to realize that she is being filmed, and we the viewers remember that last week she told her friend Paul to tell her frenemy Michaele that she has an eating disorder. Paul, being the adorable little Boy Scout he is, did as he was told. Michaele didn’t appreciate the comment and told Lynda so. That, my dear lady from south Georgia, is the time when you say, “I’m concerned about you.” It is not the time to lie about what you said. When you know you’re on record saying something, try to own it

So far, I’m going to continue watching. Are you? –Alex McCord
