 Foul-mouthed Deena Cortese has met her match in Caroline Manzo's son, Chris, who were caught in the act at a New Jersey nightclub, has learned.
The unlikely duo ran into each other in the VIP section of hotspot, 118 Lounge, this past Saturday, where they got down and dirty on the dance floor.
“Deena was basically humping Chris in front of everyone,” said one onlooker.

Chris is a hit on the show, where he is portrayed as the 'cute class clown', although his penchant for naughty girls was an important storyline on the show, after he attempted to open his own bikini strip club/car wash.

Deena - who was originally denied entrance to the VIP section - has been labeled the new wild child of the Jersey Shore and is set to make her debut on the third season, which has just wrapped.

Danielle And Kevin Unable To Reach A Settlement

Article  from Radar Online.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s most controversial resident Danielle Staub has been embroiled in a federal defamation lawsuit filed by her ex-husband Kevin Maher for months, and it looks like it’s definitely going to trial. 
Photo: Mike Derer/AP has learned exclusively that all parties were in settlement negotiations Wednesday but were unable to come to a mutual agreement and the negotiations abruptly fell apart.

"The mediator Gary Donovan tried all day for a settlement and the other side jerked us around,” Maher told exclusively.

“We tried to settle this in good faith and negotiations failed. We are going to trial!”

Staub’s lawyers had filed a motion Tuesday requesting to exclude certain evidence from trial regarding Staub’s criminal history, Maher’s polygraph examinations, any references to Staub’s extra-marital sexual history, the testimony of Daniel Aguilar, and Caroline Manzo’s deposition testimony.
Staub’s attorney Peter Cook outlined 29 points in his motion requesting to prohibit certain evidence, including the following: any depictions of Staub as either a stripper, prostitute or cocaine addict by Maher; any use of video footage from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, any use of Staub’s book The Naked Truth; any and all references to her criminal history, sexual history; and any references to her past or present illegal drug use and sex tapes featuring Staub.
And when it comes to Danielle’s former reality co-stars, Cook requested the exclusion of all references to Danielle’s relationship with Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice, Jacqueline Laurita, and Danielle’s interactions at The Brownstone owned by Caroline Manzo. Also, any references made by Caroline regarding Danielle’s reputation, alleged outstanding debts, and alleged deceitful acts.

Staub is scheduled to be deposed in the case on October 5 and Maher says it may have been a motivating factor to discuss a settlement.

"I believe that October 5 would be the worst day in Danielle Staub's life, worse than her arrest,” Maher told regarding the possible reason Danielle’s lawyers and Simon and Schuster (that published her book The Naked Truth) were attempting to settle.

Although Maher is disappointed in today’s outcome, has plans to take further legal action against the Real Housewife and those affiliated with her book.

“The mediator was talking to everyone involved so this didn't have to go to court and so I could put this behind me and she could put this behind her."

“What her lawyers did today is going to get Danielle sued twice! Danielle Staub with writer Steven Prigge and Simon and Schuster will be named as defendants in an upcoming lawsuit to be filed next week.”

Calls to attorneys for Danielle Staub were not returned.

The Real Housewives Give Makeovers

Post from the LA Times.

By:Yvonne Villarreal
Over on “Maury,” the paternity tests are getting a break.

Taking a breather from the baby daddy drama, veteran TV host Maury Povich is enlisting the help of a few “Housewives” with another pastime of the longstanding talk show: makeovers.

In the episode, to air Thursday, Danielle Staub ("Real Housewives of New Jersey"), Ramona Singer ("Real Housewives of New York City") and NeNe Leakes ("Real Housewives of Atlanta") will help transform a few disheveled “real” housewives into moms worthy of being followed around by cameras.

Hmm. Images of knee-high boots with broken heels, age-inappropriate skirts and revealing tops are dancing in our heads.

Show Trackers, do you think these were the right “Housewives” to help with the makeovers?

Simon Does Not Want His Kids On The RHOOC

Article from The Orange County Register.

Simon Barney, estranged husband of Tamra Barney, one of “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” issued a statement Wednesday exclusively to The Orange County Register. He was responding to his arrest early Tuesday on suspicion of throwing a dog leash at his wife Monday night.

Simon Barney, 46, was released Tuesday from Men’s Central Jail in Santa Ana, after posting his $10,000 bail. Here’s his statement:

“There are a lot of rumors and speculation about the events of September 20th. I am confident and have faith that the truth will come out in the courts instead of the media. This incident was a setup by my ex-wife and she is already using it to make a claim for 100% custody of our children. It stems primarily from me refusing permission for our children to be filmed on her reality show, ‘Real Housewives of Orange County.’

“Recently my ex-wife and the production company have pressured me to allow the children to be filmed. I have always refused because I don’t believe it is in our children’s best interest to be exploited in this way. This has not set well with my ex-wife. If she succeeds in obtaining 100% custody, she will then be able to give permission for the children to be filmed even though I object.
“I have never been a danger to either my ex-wife or our children, as she has recently claimed. As so many people know, I love our children more than anything in the world. To me, it is tragic that any parent would go to such extreme measures as using custody to allow their children to be filmed on a reality program. I pray for my ex wife and our children all the time.”

Simon, who still faces a charge of domestic violence, did not wish to comment further. When asked if he threw the plastic, retractable leash at his wife as she has claimed, he said, “No.”

He added that he will probably appear in court next week to respond to Tamra’s charge.

On Tuesday, Tamra Barney appeared at Lamoreaux Justice Center in Orange to start the process of filing a restraining order against Simon. The two, who were depicted in three seasons of “Real Housewives of Orange County,” have three children together.

Kevin Has More Dirt On Danielle

Article from E!.

By: Marianne Garvey and Whitney English
Real Housewives of New Jersey trouble-magnet Danielle Staub doesn't want to be called a prostitute or a stripper.
But ex-husband Kevin Maher tells E! News that he plans on revealing much worse about the reality star...
Staub filed a motion Tuesday asking the judge in Maher's defamation case against her to specifically exclude "any evidence that the Defendant was a prostitute, or a stripper, or is promiscuous, or has been featured in sex tapes."
But despite Staub's attempts to have her alleged sexual history excised from the record, Maher is fighting it, saying the dirty info he has on her will prove she is a "pathological liar."

"Since this woman put these serious rape and molestation charges against me, [information about her past] is relevant...What this woman has done to me…I can't even describe how she has ruined my life. She's without conscience."
Maher is suing Staub for $5 million over her accusations that he raped her on broken glass, hung her dog, and played Russian roulette with her lady parts.

"She lied from day one and I'm going to prove that she's a pathological liar," says Maher.

Staub is due in court Oct. 5 to give her deposition in the case.

"She's been ducking and hiding from her deposition since this lawsuit has been filed," says Maher. "Oct. 5 will be the worst day of her life, when she is confronted under oath with all her lies. She's going to be destroyed."

Maher and Staub's Housewives costar Caroline Manzo have both already been deposed. The trial is set for February.

Here's what Kim Z had to say about her boob job revision. Be forewarned - she gives graphic details:

"I had my nipple moved up half an inch, so my boobs were lifted without having a scar from the nipple to underneath the breast."

The week after the procedure, Kim tore her nipple stitches on a water slide in the Bahamas. Here's what she had to say about it:

"I felt a sharp pain in my left breast but didn't realize how serious it was until the bandages came off and there was a tear around my nipple."

Kim returned to the doctor to have her nipple properly sewn back on.

The new issue of In Touch Weekly will have even more details on Kim Z's boob/nipple situation, for those of you who didn't feel like you got way more than enough details here!

Would U go on a water slide a week after having a boob job revision?

Caroline And Bravo Working Together To Get Her Deposition Taken Down

Article from Reality Tea.

According to a new report, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is not happy that her deposition video has leaked online.

Just days after TMZ posted the video, which shows Caroline admitting she gave Bravo an ultimatum that she would not return to the show if Danielle Staub did, Zap2It is reporting today that Caroline is fighting to get the video taken off the net. Wonder why?

Zap2It reports that sources close to Caroline tell them she’s working with Bravo to try and get the video pulled, though she’s uncertain TMZ will cooperate.

As for the reason Caroline wants the video off the web, a source says it’s not because she doesn’t stand by what she said or that she’s scared of Danielle, but rather because she wants the “Danielle Drama” over with and completely out of her life.
In other NJ news, days after Life&Style broke the story of Danielle Staub’s Range Rover getting repossessed, a rep for the fired Bravo housewife is now denying the story to HollywoodLife, claiming the story is “untrue.”

“As for false statement out there saying her truck was repossessed this weekend … the lease was up and she turned it in … plain and simple,” claims Danielle’s rep. Riiiight.

Tamra Filed A Restraining Order Against Simon

Article from Radar Online. To See a clip of Tamra with Eddie at the courthouse click HERE.

The Real Housewives of Orange County star Tamra Barney showed up at an Orange County courthouse Tuesday to inquire about filing a restraining order against Simon, her estranged husband, has learned exclusively.

Simon was arrested early Tuesday morning on a domestic violence charge.

With her head down and wearing dark sunglasses, the reality TV star arrived at the courthouse in Orange County, CA accompanied by her boyfriend Eddie Judge and Bravo cameras.
When asked by if she could comment about the incident with her estranged husband, Tamra said, "I can't talk about it right now, maybe later."

And when asked if she was there to file a restraining order against him, Tamra said nothing, but responded by nodding her head "yes."

She then entered the courthouse; she left about 20 minutes later.

A source tells that Tamra will file a request for a restraining order against Simon this week.
A spokesperson for the Orange County Sheriff's Department tells that an emergency order of protection (EOP) would be in place for 72 hours following the arrest of someone for domestic violence.

But to ensure continued protection, the victim of the domestic violence would need to file for a permanent restraining order with the court before the EOP runs out.

Tamra and Simon have been going through a bitter divorce since viewers saw their marital meltdown on last season's The Real Housewives of Orange County.

But it all seemed to come to a head -- literally -- when Simon was taken into custody by OC Sheriff's on suspicion of throwing a dog leash at his wife.

Simon was released from jail on Tuesday afternoon after posting bail.

Danielle Is Worried About The Jury's Perception Of Her

Post from TMZ.

Danielle Staub -- star of her own sex tape -- doesn't want to be called a prostitute, a slut, a whore or a sex tape star ... in court, according to the new legal documents she just filed. 
Photo: Getty Images

It's all over the $5 million defamation suit the former "Real Housewives of New Jersey" star's ex-husband Kevin Maher filed against her -- claiming she falsely accused him of raping her on broken glass, sticking a loaded gun in her privates, and murdering her dog.

According to the new docs, obtained by TMZ, Staub wants to make sure any evidence depicting her as "a prostitute, or a slut, or a whore" -- including her sexual history and sex tape -- is excluded from the trial.

In the papers, Staub claims her dirty laundry would turn a jury against her.

Oddly, the motion to exclude makes no mention of her performance on 'Housewives.'
