Joe Gorga Hasn’t Spoken to Teresa Giudice in a Year

Joe Gorga Hasn’t Spoken to Teresa Giudice in a Year

Families completely imploded on the season finale of The Real Housewive’s of New Jersey last night. Speculation and assumption turned to pretty damning proof that Teresa Giudice did indeed set her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga up. At this point I don’t think anyone really cares whether or not Melissa spent a year swinging from a stripper pole years ago. Far more crushing is the (seeming) fact that Teresa set her up to be embarrassed about it in the most public of ways, at a fashion show.

Melissa was seated with all of the ladies when approached by a man who had earlier claimed (to Teresa) to be her ex boss. He said Melissa danced for him at Looker’s for nearly a year. Melissa still insists that it was a bikini bar where she bartended, with clothing. As things between Melissa and Teresa escalated, Jacqueline Laurito received texts from a mutual friend explaining details of how it was a set up. She eventually forwarded those to Joe Gorga, Melissa’s doting husband. By the end of last night’s episode he had texted his sister telling her she was “dead” to him.

It looks like he meant it too! The Gorga’s have had nothing to do with the Giudice’s since this incident aside from taking the reunion show which will air next Sunday. Not only has Joe Gorga cut Teresa out of his life but he also put his 3 million dollar home on the market in order to move his family further from her!

Some RHONJ fans believe that Joe should try to work things out with his sister for the sake of family. I’d have to disagree. If you insult a man’s wife enough eventually he washes his hands of you, even if you are blood! Should Joe stay away? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!

RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice Hits New Low – She DID Set Up Melissa Gorga!

RHONJ’s Teresa Giudice Hits New Low - She DID Set Up Melissa Gorga!

It’s a really good thing that Teresa Giudice is so very strong- I mean she tells us all the time on camera, right?  Well, she’s going to need that inner strength right now because she sure as heck has lost the support of the entire Real Housewives of New Jersey cast in no time flat.  She has always hated her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, going so far as to blame her for the lousy relationship that she had with her brother. Teresa never gets it that if you insult a mans wife, he’ll have little use for you even if he is your brother!

Teresa recently encountered a man who claimed that Melissa worked as a dancer at his club, Lookers, years ago. She has been waiting for an opportunity to really stick it to Melissa and so she quite obviously arranged for this guy, Angelo Vrohidis, to have a (not so) chance meeting with her.  She wanted Melissa to feel uncomfortable and in that moment Tre looked pretty unhappy that Melissa handled it all so well. Melissa claimed not to remember exactly where she knew Angelo from but her eyes told a different story. She kinda looked like her past was about to hit her between the eyes.

While all of this went down Jacqueline Laurito was receiving texts from a friend who had overheard Angelo say that Teresa wanted him to embarrass Melissa. It all got ugly and after last night’s episode it was revealed that the entire cast has severed their ties with Teresa and her family.

Twelve hours after this pivotal episode aired good old Angelo decided to talk to the press and according to Celeb Dirty Laundry, he confirms a set up.

‘Angelo Vrohidis bragged that Teresa knew about Melissa’s stripper past and that he appeared on the hit Bravo show because “Kim and Teresa want to blow the whistle on her.  They had me do this thing, ya know…’Melissa! Wow, I almost didn’t recognize you. You look fabulous!’” he said. During the encounter at the fashion show Melissa claimed she couldn’t remember where she knew Angelo from, so Teresa cornered her in the bathroom wanting to know the truth — even though Angelo claims she was in on it.”

Of course Teresa orchestrated this whole public fiasco! Things always happen when she has the biggest audience possible. She thrives on the attention of tossing a grenade and then ducking for cover as the damage spreads.

Are you surprised by the dramatic turns from last night? Tell us in the comments below!

Vanessa Paradis Finds Love In The Arms Of French Singer Benajamin Biolay

Vanessa Paradis Finds Love In The Arms Of French Singer Benajamin Biolay

It took me a while to move past the heartbreak and shock that was the division of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, but they’re moving on just fine! Johnny Depp has been seen stateside with several different women on his arm and now a source is reporting that Vanessa has turned to former French first lady (wife of President Nicolas Sarkozy) and singer Carla Bruni. If you’ve heard “On me dit” then you know it’s the perfect break up song, and now she and Benjamin Biolay, an ex-lover of Carla, can enjoy it together!

Karl Lagerfeld, currently the creative director for the brand Chanel, has introduced the couple, and since then they’ve been making beautiful music—for his new album! They were first seen together in April, and Vanessa has since opened up about her and Johnny, telling Harper’s Bazaar, “sometimes you could be unhappy in a relationship. You are very much in love with someone, but it’s making you unhappy and you think things can change and you can work it out.” Obviously the change she needed was a full-fledged split.

She also hinted at the success of her current relationship. “Love is the strongest and most fragile thing we have in life. Nothing is ever for sure, but when something in love doesn’t work from the beginning, it’s never going to work. Don’t push it.” If that isn’t a clue that their love is strong, I don’t know what to make of it! Of course, this could be rebound, as she and Johnny were together for 14 years, and one doesn’t simply wake up  “over” it!

Kate Middleton Proud of Body, Promises to Go Topless Again

Kate Middleton Proud of Body, Promises to Go Topless Again

The world has been in an uproar ever since the French magazine Closer printed topless photos of Kate Middleton sunbathing. Prince William was also involved, shown slathering Kate up with sun lotion. Official reports from the palace have called the photos grotesque invasions of privacy, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have sent their legal team to France to see that all privacy laws are enforced. Of course, they had to do that. One cannot take a bite out of the royal family and go without punishment!

A new source close to the family is explaining just where the anger and fury came from—and it isn’t with the content of the photos! Of course, Kate and Wills want privacy, but the source reported, “Kate is proud of her body. She knows she’s got a fabulous figure and isn’t scared to show it off.” Anyone who has seen the photos has to agree—Kate is trim and toned! Rather than getting embarrassed about her figure, Kate is holding her chin up. The problem isn’t that she has poor body image, it’s that she thought she had total privacy.

The source promised that “while she was embarrassed when the photos were published, it hasn’t put her off going topless again. Next time though, she’ll do it somewhere a bit more private. She just wants to lead her life.” I’m not sure how she’ll ensure that, as the Chateau was supposed to be entirely private! I’m sure that paps will be hiring private helicopters to scope her out in the future, now that they know how much money is baking on a scandal like this! But we are thrilled that Duchess Kate loves who she is and is proud of her body!

Kanye West To File Legal Action Against Sex Tape Holder, Lawyer Says It Was Illegally Obtained

Kanye West has not much to be smiling about, other than the fact that he’s dating Kim Kardashian (though, we aren’t sure if that’s a good thing). The rapper is livid upon finding out that his sex tape with an unidentified woman is being shopped on the internet to its highest bigger – and they are saying that offers are ridiculously high due to the publicity the video will get. So, in Kanye’s defence, he has lawyered up with the best in the business to make sure the video never comes to light.

The woman in the video is believed to be 18-years old, while the video lasts for a total of 20 minutes. What makes the situation worse is that according to TMZ, there’s ANOTHER sex tape also going around – most likely with ex-girlfriend Amber Rose, which lasts for FORTY MINUTES, where West is at it non-stop (their words, not ours). So, Kanye’s lawyer has left a statement, hoping that whoever is trying to sell these tapes will change their mind before they end up being sued… for millions.

He explained that “the screen shot, as well as the tape from which the screen shot was taken, were illegally obtained and [are] believed to have been stolen from Mr. West’s computer. We hereby demand that you… immediately cease and desist from posting, advertising, marketing, displaying and disseminating the illegally obtained screen shot of Mr West,” the statement added.

No word on Kanye’s thoughts just yet, but we’re sure he’s not in such a great mood right now. But, look on the bright side – should the video be published, Kim and Kanye will have at least something in common. They both have successful sex tapes… well, Kanye will have two. He’s just showing off, isn’t he? Ha.



Alicia Keys Explains Why She Canceled Beyonce Music Video Duet: ‘It Was Better To Just Leave It’

Back in 2010, singer Alicia Keys had filmed the music video for her duet with Beyonce called Put It In A Love Song. The two flew out to Rio to film the video, which reportedly had a high budget in production. But after the video was filmed, weeks and weeks went by without the visual ever coming out – and there was nothing ever said on why Alicia has not released the video yet. Keys had us all confused.

Now, in a new interview with Essence magazine, Alicia opened up on what really happened and why she decided to shelve the video, despite having spent so much money to film the video in the first place. She tells the mag: She said: “Sometimes with creative things [it] all comes together and it’s [perfect], and sometimes things almost come together and it’s better to just leave it.

The way the singer phrased her sentences sounded like she had talked to Beyonce about the situation before canceling the video release in the long run, though she added they had fun shooting it: “We had a ball shooting the video. It just so happens that the whole thing, for some reason or another, didn’t quite come together, so we just decided to leave it.”

Alicia will drop her latest album Girl On Fire in November – her follow-up to her multi-platinum selling album The Element Of Freedom, which was released back in 2009.
