Caroline Does Not Know Who The New Housewife Is

Interview from Wonder Wall.

Caroline Manzo: No Idea Who the New 'Housewives' Might Be
By Drew Mackie, with reporting by Paris Hampton

"Real Housewives" star Caroline Manzo made the short trip from New Jersey to take in Fashion Week -- not only as a spectator but also as a model. Wonderwall scored an exclusive interview with Manzo at the Sachika fashion show. Here are Caroline's thoughts on hitting the runway for the first time, spring fashion and, of course, who will be on the next season of "Real Housewives of New Jersey."

Wonderwall: Is this your first time walking?
Caroline Manzo: Yes!

WW: How do you feel?
CM: I'm not even thinking about it! I'm just going to go out there and walk. That's it! I'll worry about it when I get there. I'm sure when I hit the entrance where I have to start walking, my legs will probably turn to Jell-O. But I will walk, turn around and come back!

WW: Do you have a favorite supermodel?
CM: I admire them all. I think they're all beautiful and gorgeous. I saw Iman the other day, and she is beyond fabulous.

WW: Who else are you excited to see at Fashion Week?
CM: I saw Chris Benz. I did a lot of charity work this week, so I haven't had a chance to do any fashion work.

WW: Is there a shoe or bag you're coveting?
CM: Jimmy Choo is my favorite ever. Anything by Jimmy Choo I love. I am a bag whore, so I have millions of bags and shoes. Whatever makes me happy at the moment, that's what I chose.

WW: What do you think of the other celeb lines?
CM: I've heard of JWoww's, but I haven't seen it. I actually have a few things of Gwen Stefani's. I like her line. I think it's fun. Bebe -- I'm too old to wear Bebe. There should be a Bebe 40-plus line. A hot mama line!

WW: What can you tell us about Danielle Staub during the reunion? Was the hug at the end real or fake?
CM: Well, clearly my reaction and my opinion still holds true. I didn't feel it was sincere. If the other girls felt they needed to do that for themselves, that's fine. I respect that. I am what I am.

WW: Where is Teresa Giudice?
CM: I have no clue where Teresa is.

WW: How is the bankruptcy?
CM: Status quo. Teresa is strong. She handles it well, and I give her a lot of credit. She's a pretty strong person. I wish her the best.
WW: So Danielle is off the show?
CM: As I understand it, yeah. We know there's a season three, but we don't know who's in it. True story!

Will Bravo Block Danielle's New Shows?

Article from Babble.

For those of you hoping for a Danielle Staub spinoff show, it may not happen if Bravo TV execs have anything to say about it.

This week has been full of wild theories of what the now unemployed Real Housewives of New Jerseystar Danielle Staub will do now that she has been given her official walking papers from the hit reality show, but it may all be a no-go.

Danielle has reportedly been shopping around everything from a spinoff reality show to a Oprah-esque talk show. Apparently Danielle hasn’t read through her Housewives contract which bars her from working for any other network for several years without Bravo’s written permission. (Given the legal battle Bravo put on when Project Runway jumped ship, they most certainly aren’t going to let her waltz off to another channel without a fight!)

“These ladies think they are superstars now and that something like a contract doesn’t matter,” an insider tells Popeater about the situation. “Well, think again. Bravo isn’t in the business of creating stars and then letting them go to other networks. That just isn’t going to happen.”

So unless Danielle heals some of the bridges over at Bravo don’t expect to see her returning to reality TV anytime soon

Danielle Bartending Tonight


Please, please, someone tell us they are going to Boxer’s NYC (New York City’s gay sports bar!!) tonight and seeing former Real Housewife of New York Danielle Staub make a guest-appearance. Why? Who knows! Sometimes life just hands you these little bits of joy, and you have to take them as they come.

Bethenny Will Only Return To The RHONY If Legally Obligated

Article from Hollyscoop.

by: Bridget Daly
Bethenny Frankel is in a pretty good position right now. She’s been successful in distancing herself from Real Housewives of New York, although she’s still technically contracted to them.

With her own reality show, Frankel has been able to break free and stay in the spotlight at the same time. We’ll be seeing more of her on Bethenny Getting Married, which has gotten picked up for another season.

Bethenny told Hollyscoop, “People love my show because I am telling the truth. It is what it is…that’s my real life…every minute, nothing sensationalized.”

She added that it’s “not scripted at all,” and what you see on the screen is what’s really happening in her, Jason, and baby Bryn’s lives.

As for Real Housewives, as Hollyscoop previously reported that Frankel will be returning to the show for the fourth season. But Bethenny continued to play coy with us, saying, “I wont go back to Real Housewives unless I have to. If I am legally obligated. I don’t know--they haven’t started yet, so I have to see.”

Since Bethenny has had so much success in the reality world, we couldn’t help but ask if she would ever consider doing Dancing With the Stars. “There’s been so many seasons of it,” she told us, adding, “Maybe something else like it,” she teased.

Interesting! We love Bethenny, and think she’s in her reality prime right now! She should continue to ride the wave as long as possible!

Danielle's Motion To Dismiss Will Be Heard September 27th

Article from Radar Online.

Warning: This story contains graphic details
Real Housewife of New Jersey Caroline Manzo has been dragged into her cast mate Danielle Staub's ongoing court battle with her ex-husband, and has the exclusive document detailing her involvement with the case.

The red-headed NJ Housewife who has openly talked about her disdain for Danielle on - and off - the show was recently deposed in a Federal defamation lawsuit filed against Danielle by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.

At one point during her deposition, Manzo recounted the tales Danielle told her about her sordid married past in which Danielle claimed to have hid from Maher in a tree, claimed she was forced by him into prostitution, and how she feared for her life.

"She depicted him as a monster," Manzo recalled during her July 22 deposition. "She depicted him as someone who would beat her daily, as someone that put her in the hospital due to the beatings, I want to say on more than one occasion."

Manzo was deposed on behalf of Maher in an effort to help prove his defamation claim against Danielle. Maher claims the former Real Housewife of New Jersey star made damning allegations to other people about him, including that he raped her on broken glass, hanged or shot her dog, and that he inserted a gun into her and played Russian roulette.

Under oath, Manzo recalled statements allegedly made by Danielle and they appear to confirm Maher's claims. "She told a story about being raped on broken glass. One incident, she said that he shot her dog. And then another incident she claimed that he hanged her dog. I'm confused as to whether this all was at the same moment of the rape on the glass with the dog, and inserted a pistol up her vagina and played like a Russian roulette."

Manzo continued, "She claimed to have been hiding in a tree at some point, afraid that when he came home he would find her and beat her. She claimed to be the victim of prostitution due to his demands, that he put her into that world, again depicting him as an absolute monster. And the only reason she stayed with him, because she feared for her life if she left."

"Again it was just a picture of an absolute monster, that she was under his control... anything that she did during the course of her relationship with Kevin Maher was not of her own freewill; it was more or less a domineering person."

Danielle has filed a motion with the court to dismiss the case which will be heard on September 27.

Danielle Starts Taping Her New Show Thursday

Article from Hollywood Life.

By:Chloe Melas
Danielle has moved on from The Real Housewives of New Jersey to not one but TWO new reality show spin-offs and we’ve got exclusive details right from Danielle!

Danielle Staub has revealed exclusively to the title of her new show — and what it’s all about!
We spoke to the reality vixen Sept. 13, at OK! magazine’s Fifth Anniversary Celebration at NYC club Avenue. The mom-of-two had a camera crew in tow when she finally told us EXCLUSIVELY that her show is called Social and it will air on the WealthTV network.

“I’m replacing Robin Leach basically, of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, but with a twist,” she says. “There will be more socializing with the rich and famous celebrities and we’ll show how they give back as well.”
WealthTV is a network aimed at high-net-worth viewers with shows titled “Tales of Kings and Castles” and “Wealth in the Air.” And it’s only available on high-definition TV. (So wear great makeup, Danielle!)

Danielle, 48, says she tapes the first episode this Thursday — and she will do it for 26 straight weeks.
“Each week I’ll have a different celebrity or billionaire,” she excitedly tells us. “I’ll be filming anywhere from New Jersey all the way to India. We have a lot of celebrities lined up but I can’t tell you their names yet. Lori Michaels [her rumored girlfriend] will be a part of this too.”

But the reality star was quick to tell us that Social is just one of the shows she’s working on.
“My spinoff will be introduced very soon as well,” she says. “I’ll be doing two shows that are intertwined and my kids will be on both shows.”
Danielle wouldn’t tell us the exact name of the second show but she did tell that ABC approached her with 10 different possible names.

“The funniest suggestions was My Two Moms,” she says even though she wouldn’t reveal if ABC was the official network. “You’ll have to keep watching to figure it out [her relationship with Lori] but I’m so attracted to her … she’s just like me but only more manly!

Being On The RHONY Is Now A Family Decision For Bethenny

Photo: Wire Image

Bethenny Frankel has opened up about her decision not to return to “The Real Housewives of New York City,” citing family concerns.

During Monday’s premiere episode of Access Hollywood Live, Bethenny told show hosts Billy Bush and Kit Hoover that the decision to leave the popular Bravo series was due to looking after both herself and her “family’s health,” she said.

“The truth is, when I first was on that show, it was a personal decision. I used to say it was only for me, but now, it’s not good for my family,” Bethenny told Billy and Kit. “My husband would never want to do it. It has to be a family decision, so that’s the point.”

When Billy asked if she had officially quit the show, Bethenny suggested that she was off the show, but hinted there could be a reason for her to return.

“Um, I’m not gonna be a ‘Housewife.’ I’m, ironically, a housewife, but I’m not gonna be a ‘Housewife,’” she said, referring to her recent nuptials to Jason Hoppy on her own Bravo reality show, “Bethenny Getting Married?” “If I have to, that’s a different story.”
