What’s cooking? According to The Daily Mail it’s a new Bravo cooking show starring Teresa Giudice. A Real Housewives of New Jersey “insider” reportedly told the publication that there is already a deal for the mother of 4 girls, and several New York Times bestselling cookbooks, to host her own cooking show while appearing part-time on the series that made her famous enough to write a cookbook in the first place.
“Teresa is, of course, devastated she has to spend even one day behind bars but she has already made this whole situation a money maker for her…Teresa and Bravo have been taking this time to plan a big media event when she is released from prison either late next year or early 2016.”
Teresa reports to a facility in Danbury, Connecticut to start serving her sentence on January 5th.
Will Jacqueline Laurita see Teresa before sentencing? According to what she told me at an event on November 19th, probably not.” The once besties have barely even spoken since the sentencing. “I texted her, she answered me, and that was it,” Jacqueline said when I asked her about the current status of their friendship. To read the entire interview including what Jacqueline said about coming back to RHONJ and about her feud with Dina Manzo, click here.
Kim Zolciak has 4 reasons to celebrate this week. On Monday twins Kaia and Kane Biermann turned one. Kim posted adorable pictures of the birthday twins on her social media and made the following statement:
“It seems like yesterday I told Dr. Hood I feel different this pregnancy I couldn’t stay awake. Seriously though and he did an ultrasound and BAAM 2 sacs!!! I couldn’t believe it!!!…although twins run high on my moms side I was still in shock! What a blessing!!”
The other two reasons she should celebrate, her impossibly thin waist which she is flaunting in selfies. She credits a cleanse from 310 Nutrition, but let’s not forget that she did have a tummy tuck. As a mother of twins I can tell you that is a huge part of the formula (I had to do it too). She is quick to point out that plastic surgery isn’t a “cure all” and that she does work out (I will also agree that this is key). The fourth reason she should celebrate is that she’s gone a full year without being knocked up. Guess she should be kissing the feet of her plastic surgeon and Kroy‘s urologist. Ummm, it is a urologist that does the vasectomy…right? I’m not sure, what I am sure of is that Kim, those twins would only be inherited from your mother’s side. Twins on the father’s side are usually not genetic. It’s the female line that double ovulates. I’m also sure that you didn’t proofread that post (commas and apostrophes are our friends, my dear.)
Real Housewives of Orange County ‘s Vicki Gunvalson is no longer hiding her relationship with Brooks Ayers. Though the two have been off and on for quite a few years now, Vicki told US Weekly’s Brody Brown that not only have the two been exclusively dating again for the last year, but Brooks has moved into her home. Vicki’s daughter, Briana Culberson, who has been publicly against her mother’s relationship, hadn’t known that the two were together prior to the interview. However, this is the least of the couples’ problems.
Brooks, who has battled Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma since 2009, is once again facing the reality of having the disease. Brooks told Vicki earlier this fall that he was diagnosed with Stage 3 of the cancer. Vicki stated in the interview that cancer, “will either tear you apart as a couple or bring you together. And with us, without a doubt, it’s brought us together.” Vicki also stated that her RHOC castmates have mostly been there for her all except for ex BFF Tamra Judge. “You know what, you really find out who your true friends are when things like this happen,” she said. Are you team Tamra or team Vicki? Tell us why below.
