Who Is Your Favorite Atlanta Housewife?

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta never fails to amuse us in ways we never imagined. Whether it be the disgraceful display of Sheree and Kim on The Ellen Show or Sheree pulling Kim’s hair, the list goes on.

We placed a poll on our website a few weeks ago and the results have been really interesting. Surprisingly, NeNe Leakes is still your favorite Atlanta Housewife, though her popularity seems to be dwindling down in recent weeks. It seems the more you all have gotten to know Kandi Burruss, the more she is liked. Lisa and Kim are tied in the like-ability department.

Kandi is without a doubt my favorite Atlanta housewife, as her easygoing demeanor reminds me of Jacqueline from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Nene has become a tad more obnoxious this season. She’s louder, meaner and her unprovoked jealousy towards Kandi is rather transparent. Sheree is more unlikeable this year, who knew that was possible? She comes of as being angry at the world, while still having major delusions of grandeur. Lisa is still Lisa, and Kim? Well her wig looks slightly better this season.

NJ Housewife Danielle Staub’s Daughter Becomes A Model

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Danielle Staub’s life has been filled with controversy following the show’s first season. On a much brighter note, her daughter Christine Staub recently signed a modeling contract with IMG Models – the same agency that represents super models including Gisele Bunchen, Heidi Klum, Kate Moss and Taylor Momsen.

Though the 15-year-old high school sophomore is taking test photos, she is expected to hit the catwalk as early as September during the New York Fashion week, according to IMG.

“She came into our offices and we were blown away!” Ivan Bart, SVP and Managing Director of IMG Models Worldwide, tells PEOPLE. “She has an amazing amount of potential as a model. If we had seen her on the street we would have signed her on the spot.”

“This is all very new to me,” Christine told The Daily . “I’ve never really done any modeling before, so I’m just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I’m also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!”

We certainly hope that her life is nothing like her mother’s past. From watching the show, she seems like a smart young lady.

NY Housewives’ Danielle Staub Speaks Out On What She Did To Dina

Danielle Staub made an appearance this week on Bravo’s new weekly talk show, “Watch What Happens” hosted by Andy Cohen.

Andy wasted no time in asking The Real Housewives of New Jersey “star” about the infamous reunion incident which left Caroline Manzo in tears. Danielle claimed that just prior to the reunion show, she gave a phone number to the brother of a longtime friend … and that brother just happened to be Dina Manzo’s ex-husband. The reason being? It had something to do with contracts of the show according to Danielle.

Dina has admitted in a past interview that the tension between she and Danielle began over lawyer fees for their show’s negotiations. Dina hired a lawyer and wanted all the women to chip in so that they could all negotiate their contracts together for the show. Danielle declined saying she wanted to do her own negotiations.

Danielle went on to admit she regrets her actions saying, “It wasn’t my place to do so.” She also adds that she didn’t think it was a big enough deal to provoke Caroline’s reaction.

Other topics covered during the show included questions about her plastic surgery and sex tape. She denied ever having a brow lift, and claimed to be laying off on the botox for a while. When it came to the sex tape issue, she claimed to have been “set up.” She also denied the news of being a past escort.

I’m not really sure how one can be unaware that they are being taped with a cell phone camera while having sex, but umm sure Danielle. I’m sure she was set up the same way someone set her up to go on national television and ask her 46 26 year old boyfriend for public restroom sex.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Attend Cirque Du Soleil – Photos

The Real Housewives of New Jersey attended the Cirque Du Soleil in New Jersey yesterday. Well only some of the housewives, as Caroline Manzo was not in attendance.

You have to love the picture above and the space between Danielle and Teresa. Wondering if this means Jacqueline and Danielle have made up.

Below are more pictures of the cast with their families. Is it just me or is there something sorta sexy about Jacqueline’s husband, Chris?

Real NJ Housewife Teresa Is Preparing For Baby #4

Energetic Real Housewives of New Jersey star, Teresa Giudice is expecting baby #4 in September. Teresa opens up to OK magazine about her pregnancy.

“I eat everything,” she tells OK with young daughter Gia at her side. “I don’t watch what I eat – I’m not one of those ‘oh I have to watch my figure.’ I just make the baby happy. Whatever the baby wants, I eat it. No cravings.” Teresa says she has had to satisfy her alcohol cravings with food.

She goes on to say she is not interested in knowing the sex of the baby. “Whatever God wants – as long as it’s a healthy baby.” Gia adds, “It’s the fourth child and you want it to be a surprise – you should let it be a surprise.”

Big sisters Gia, Gabriella and Milania are anxious to meet the new addition to the family. Teresa also adds that hubby, Juicy Joe, is a great dad.

Lessons she will like to pass on to the kids- value family and be a well-rounded good person because you have to look at yourself in the mirror daily.

More Danielle Staub Excerpts From Cop Without A Badge Reprint

danielle-staub-cop-without-a-badge-reprint

Danielle Staub’s past unraveling in front of the public eye apparently means big business for her ex husband, Kevin Maher. The book he helped write about his and Danielle’s past, Cop Without A Badge, has now gone back into print. It is due out July 10th for all those wishing to their hands on this very significant piece of history.

Below are some more interesting excerpts from the book about Danielle/Beverly Merrill courtesy of Starcasm

The book’s description of Beverly / Danielle’s involvement with the kidnapping:

”Some rich kids kept saying he didn’t have the money. But the DD knew the father was some rick old f**k, so the DD [dealer] grabbed the kid. Beat the s**t out of him for three days. Didn’t feed him. Kept telling the kid that if his father didn’t send money, he was going to kill them . . .

‘She was there man’, Uribe said with a sigh. ‘She was there through the whole f**king thing. She was partying with the DD for a month straight.”

What Kevin Maher thinks after meeting the pantiless Beverly/Danielle in Miami:

“She’s beautiful. I hope she’s not just another coke whore.”

After a couple lines of coke and romp in the sack Kevin has a startling revelation about Beverly/Danielle:

“She has no morals, but she’s a good person.”

Coke-fuelled insights don’t lie and within hours Maher is “in love,” forgetting completely that at that time he is still married to a woman named Beth. How Maher got Beverly / Danielle off with probation instead of prison for her kidnapping charges:

“Maher . . . bent the truth about one of the dealers.”

How Beverly / Danielle reacted to her light sentence which Maher’s helped orchestrate:

“She stared into Maher’s eyes in the dreamy way someone would regard a hero.”

Maher moves Beverly/Danielle away from all the coke dealers in Miami that she has sexed up in exchange for drugs, and relocate to New York. He becomes jealous when he finds Beverly getting some suspicious “deals” around town, including a quick promotion at work and a cut-rate apartment deal:

“You don’t become the featured dancer at Gallagher’s making six hundred a night unless you’re f****ing somebody.”

The night after Maher almost shoots up the strip joint where she works Beverly / Danielle lets him in her apartment:

“’You shouldn’t have done that, Kevin,’ she said with a smile. Beverly laughed. Maher laughed. Then they tore each other’s clothes off.”

When Maher’s wife Beth had finally had enough of all the drama and got herself and her son out of Maher’s life, Beverly slinked right in. The pair immediately started having a grand time:

“Cocaine and passion, endless weeks of delirious pleasure. Maher and Beverly floated into the charcoal days of autumn. By October, Maher had moved into Beverly’s Brooklyn apartment.
‘You know, Kevin,’ Beverly said one night, ‘I’ve been with probably a thousand guys and I’ve never felt this way about any of them.’
Maher looked at her in disbelief. A thousand guys?
Maybe it was the cocaine. Maybe Maher had just gone crazy. Whatever it was, Kevin Maher and Beverly Merrill were united in matrimony on October 20, 1988.”

And the two lived happily ever after, okay not really. They would go on to have a volatile relationship in which Kevin claims Danielle continued to dance and cheat on him with a ton of men. They would end up separating. A divorce was never needed as Kevin was still legally married to his first wife.

Danielle claimed during the reunion show that Kevin was very abusive to her, and that was the reason she left him.

RHONJ Danielle’s Ex Husband: Her Life’s In Danger

Real Housewives Danielle Staub

Danielle Staub’s ex and author of “Cop Without A Badge,” Kevin Maher continues to speak out about his ex wife. Kevin gave another interview to Star, stating her life is in danger.

The reason being? “She helped put a couple of big-time Colombian coke dealers in jail,” says Kevin. “These are dangerous men who never forget…and they could be back out on the street now. It’s mind-boggling to me that she’d put herself at risk!”

Kevin continues “I can’t believe Danielle would have allowed herself to go on TV — on a series that basically shows where she lives! — given what she has done in the past.” How sweet of Kevin for caring so much for Danielle’s safety.

In other NJ Housewives’s news, Jacqueline Laurita gave a new interview to Life & Style magazine and spoke out against Danielle once again –

“I don’t think it was something as simple as giving a phone number out, but leave it to Danielle to try to downplay her whole dirty deed. She’s an angry, bitter person. She felt Dina rejected her, so she went out to destroy her!

All of the housewives excluding Danielle also appeared this morning on the Regis and Kelly show. Danielle was not with them because the housewives felt it would be uncomfortable. Also when pressed about what Danielle did to Dina, they all refused to say exactly what it was. Below is a picture of them leaving the studio –

Danielle Staub’s Scene On All My Children Plus More On Caroline’s Tears

Danielle-staub-all-my-children

It is now being speculated that the exact thing Danielle Staub did to Dina Mano was try to help her ex husband get her daughter, Lexi, taken away from her. Keyword here is speculation. Allegedly, wanting to hold on to custody of her daughter might have been the main reason Dina decided to quit her job to become a full stay at home mom.

No word on if the information Danielle gave to Dina’s husband is true or false, nor do we know what information this might have been. This theory does make a lot of sense considering what Danielle wrote in her blog last week regarding Caroline’s outburst –

“I simply gave a phone number to her ex brother-in-law to contact proper people with questions that he had concerning something that was absolutely none of my business. I was asked to give this information to him. If I had to do it again, I would have declined and preferred not to get involved.”

All interesting stuff. Moving on from that, is a clip of Danielle’s appearance on the soap – All My Children in 2001. This seems to be one of the few truths to come out of her mouth, as it was revealed she was never a Ford model even though she claimed she was.

The above photo is from her scene. It is a short scene, and she only had 2 lines in it. You can catch a clip of this on Soapnet.

The Real Housewives of NY & NJ Attend Fashion Show

real-housewives

The Real Housewives of New York and New Jersey were in attendance for the taping of Bravo’s Fashion Show season finale. As you can see from the above photo, the other New Jersey housewives were sure to keep their distance from Danielle.

More photos of the housewives are below courtesy of GettyImages. The NYPost wrote a blub about this the other day saying –

“At this morning’s taping for the “Fashion Show” finale at Cipriani Wall Street in NYC, “The Real Housewives” of both New York and New Jersey sat together in the audience while Danielle was seated apart from the group. When asked to get together for a picture, Danielle’s inclusion was “very awkward,” according to a source in the audience.”

The Real Housewives of NJ Returning For 2nd Season!

NJHousewives

Good news Real Housewives of New Jersey fans! Life&Style magazine is now confirming that the series will be returning for a second season. This does not come as a surprise as the finale episode was the highest rated ever for the Housewives’ series.

According to the story, filming is set to begin next month. An insider revealed, “They’re doing a second season, and it’s going to be crazier than the first. It’s going to explode.”

Can the 2nd season top the table flipping 1st season? We shall see. It will also be interesting to see what Bravo does, as all four of the ladies want absolutely nothing to do with Danielle. Jacqueline has even gone on record saying she never wants Danielle to see her new born son. Not that we can blame any of them.
