Teresa Giudice Pre-Prison Christmas Special Coming to Bravo: She Got Paid HOW MUCH?!

Even though the delusional reality star is still fighting her sentence, there’s officially no getting around it: Teresa Giudice will serve 15 months in prison beginning on January 5.

Teresa Giudice on The Real Housewives

Though you’d think they’d have enough drama in their lives, sources say the Giudices are arguing about how to spend their last Christmas together before they’re separated for several years.

(Joe Giudice will begin his 41 month sentence after Teresa completes hers.)

We’re not sure if the felonious couple have agreed on how to spend the holidays yet, but one thing’s for sure – it will be a lucrative affair for the entire family.

Teresa and Bravo have reportedly reached a deal for a Giudice family Christmas special that will pay the Real Housewife $250,000, with bonus checks being handed out to the rest of the family.

“Teresa had been very concerned about how she was going to pay for the extravagant gifts for their four daughters at Christmas,” says a source close to the Giudices. “This could be a way for her to say goodbye to her fans ahead of the prison sentence.”

Right…we’re sure saying goodbye to her fans is Teresa’s real motivation here.

Teresa is already one of the highest-paid Real Housewives, with Bravo insiders claiming Giudice’s salary reached $700,000 a year in recent seasons. 

Between that income and the cash from her pre-prison interviews, Teresa has nearly paid off her court-ordered restitution before even beginning her sentence. Jeez, almost seems like she didn’t need to commit all that fraud in the first place, right?

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey online at TV Fanatic to see Teresa living high on the hog before it all came crashing down. 

Table Flipping Fiend


Teresa Giudice is not gonna take any crap. Her table-flipping reputation will precede her in prison, thanks to The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 1.

Who was the best dressed lady at Matthew McConaughey’s tribute?

FFN_RIJ_2014_CINEMATHEQUE_102114_51564528

I actually liked Matthew McConaughey’s GQ interview (go here to read), especially when he talked about his rom-com past and how that made him the man he is today. He’s not ashamed that he made those films, which is nice. And as a reward, so many of Matthew’s leading ladies came out to support him last night as he received the American Cinematheque Award. Seriously, almost all of Matthew’s former costars are women. It’s kind of nice. For the event, Matthew and his wife Camila were both wearing Dolce & Gabbana. Camila is a beautiful woman but this whole look is a NO. Matthew looks kind of rough here too.

I think Anne Hathaway finds it really difficult to incorporate bold colors into her red carpet looks. Her default is to always wear black, metallics or neutrals. She needs to rethink that. She wore this gothy Christopher Kane dress and I’m not really into it. I will give her this: she’s starting to grow out her hair and it looks fantastic.

Jessica Chastain in Givenchy. Redheads in yellow… I have mixed feelings. This isn’t the best on her but it’s far from the worst.

Reese Witherspoon in a Prabal Gurung. I really like this! I know, it’s kind of prom-y and girly, but I think it’s interesting and she wears it well.

Yes, Kate Hudson’s hair is actually a weird dishwater-pink shade. I don’t get it either. Her dress is Jenny Packham. It looks like the bust wasn’t tailored correctly, right?

Jennifer Garner in Dolce & Gabbana. Camila should have worn this! On Garner, it’s pretty and simple. I like her styling here much more than her God-awful makeup at the Elle event two nights ago.

Michelle Monaghan in Miu Miu, shoes are Louboutins. I like this. This is a great dress for an event in which you’re not the main event. Also: YAY SLEEVES!

Duchess Kate in baby blue Jenny Packham in London: cute or too mullety?

Here are some photos of Duchess Kate’s appearance last night at the Wildlife Photographer of the Year Awards in London. This was Kate’s second public appearance yesterday. And yesterday’s two public events were her first events since August. It seems Kate is through the worst of her morning sickness, and she looked much improved in these evening shots. Meaning, she didn’t look like she about to barf on a ceremonial horse for the evening event, but horse-barfing was definitely a possibility at the carriage procession in the morning. I’m also including some photos from earlier in the day, including that shot of Kate’s coatdress billowing up because she’s still not weighting her hems. Classic Waity!

Also Classic Kate – this Jenny Packham gown she wore to the Wildlife Photographer event. This makes me recall the old Issa dresses she used to wear during her long courtship with William. Back then, Kate loved some clingy jersey, she loved to show her legs in anything short (some things never change) and she loved to party all night. I have mixed feelings about this Packham gown – I think the color is pretty and the general silhouette is clean and smart. You know I like a good sleeve. But the tufting on the sleeve is pissing me off and the front slit/mullet dress effect is really, really tacky. Not princessy, not duchessy. Very Real Housewife, honestly.

Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels: It’s Over! Rapper Dumps Boyfriend of 14 Years!

When rumors that Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels were engaged surfaced back in May, many fans were taken by surprise. After all, Nicki does such a good job of keeping her personal life private that few even realized she was in a relationship.

Nicki Minaj and Safaree Samuels Photo

Now it seems that we’ll never know if Nicki and Safaree had plans to get married, because sources say the “Anaconda” rapper has officially kicked dude to the curb after an on-off relationship that lasted for fourteen years!

Rumors began to surface that they were finished after Safaree was spotted shirtless in public with his Nicki tattoos inked over. Yes, he had several Nicki-related pieces including her name and portrait on his chest.

Now, insiders have confirmed to TMZ that Nicki and Safaree are through. The reason? Well, it seems there was only room for one star in the relationship, and Safaree wouldn’t stop pressuring Nicki to help make him famous.

Sources say they had an arrangement that had worked for years – Nicki was the A-list rapper, Safaree was the personal assistant/hype man.

It worked from the time they were in their teens up until now, but insiders say Safaree’s ego couldn’t bear another year of playing second fiddle. He probably also got fed up with Nicki giving Drake a drunk lap dances, but that’s another story.

So Nicki is on the market again, fellas. We’ve studied her song lyrics, and as far as we can tell, she’s only into guys who have pet snakes, for some reason.

Jennifer Lopez to Sign MEGA Las Vegas Concert Deal: Eat It, Britney!

She may still be Jenny from the Block.

But Jennifer Lopez will soon be able to live like a queen.

According to TMZ, the American Idol judge is nearing a deal to perform often in Las Vegas and, based on the contract, she’ll earn more per show than Britney Spears.

Jennifer Lopez in Singapore

Lopez is being offered $350,000 per show – yes, that’s $350,000 PER SHOW – to sing and dance at The Axis’ Planet Hollyood, which is the same venue in which Britney is currently performing.

But Spears is only taking in $310,000 per show.

However, Spears has signed on to do 96 concerts in a two-year period, while Lopez will do 72 concerts over the course of one or two years (about three per week).

So Britney will earn more than J. Lo over the course of her deal. ($29,760,000 to $26,383,326, for those keeping track at home. Neither singer will exactly be going hungry any time soon.)

By comparison, however, Celine Dion puts on 70 concerts per year and gets paid a total sum of $33,320,000 for her time in Las Vegas. This artist’s bank account will clearly go on and on.

Kim Kardashian in a red ribbed skirt & grey bodysuit: unflattering or not bad?

FFN_KimShopping_CPR_RR_FF2_FF10_102014_51563447

I’ll admit it: after looking at La Pinocchio Butt for too long, Kim Kardashian’s butt looks almost normal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m sure both Khloe and Kim have butt implants and they might even be in the midst of some kind of butt battle, but Khloe’s butt is clearly the winner, if by “winner” we mean “the biggest freakshow butt.” Anyway, these are new photos of Kim out and about in West Hollywood yesterday. She stopped by some office building and then she did some shopping at Fred Segal.

I don’t really get Kim’s outfit. But after yesterday’s fiasco ensemble – the jorts and backless shirt thing – this outfit is almost a welcome respite. Still, I don’t get the combo of a red ribbed-knit skirt with a grey bodysuit. I’ve never been one of those people declaring some color to be “the new neutral,” which is what happened here. Someone told Kim that either grey or red is the “new neutral” and thus it could be paired with any other color. When really, this combination just looks off. To me. Maybe I’m alone. Fame/Flynet also notes that Kim was carrying a purse that read “PUNTA.” Yikes.

Meanwhile, Radar says that Kim has over-the-top demands for any appearance or business deal that she might undertake:

Kim Kardashian has shilled everything from diet pills to video games, perfumes, and more. But slapping her name on a product doesn’t come without a price: RadarOnline.com has uncovered secret business emails from the star’s reps outlining just what it takes to get Kardashian involved with a product launch — and her over-the-top demands will shock you!

The emails were sent between a rep for Kardashian and the owner of a firm that was interested in hiring Kardashian to promote their brand. Radar has decided not to reveal the brand to protect the source.

According to the emails, Kardashian’s minimum rate for an endorsement is $750,000 to $1 million. Wrote the rep, “I think you should definitely come back with the best offer that you can make her from a money standpoint, so that we can save the time going back and forth.”

But the fee is only the half of it. For travel related to personal appearances for the brand, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star requires “5 first class tickets, plus 1 coach, first class hotel accommodations (1 suite for talent and standard rooms for others in party), portal to portal first class exclusive ground transportation, airport greeter service, security, glam fee (day rate for her hair and makeup squad), and a per diem.”

Her rep also noted, “We would need approval over photographer, all photos used in print materials, glam squad (hair, makeup, stylist, manicurist), hotel/airline/car service and PR usage.” Said the rep, “We would need to review and approve [the media plan] with her PR team.”

But if Kardashian’s diva demands put her out of the company’s price range, the rep was willing to offer second best: Kendall Jenner would shill the line for $500,000 to $1 million, the rep said.

[From Radar]

Is anyone really shocked by this? Most of this stuff is pretty standard for the higher-caliber celebrity endorsers. Mariah Carey would look at this list of demands and scoff! Jennifer Lopez wouldn’t understand how Kim could get by with so few people too. Here’s my question: if you have the money and you can get Kim for $1 million plus all of the extras, why would you go for a Jenner girl? I don’t get how Kendall can get $500K for anything. Why would anyone care? I mean, if you get Kim, at least the photos will run on every blog and entertainment show. With a Jenner girl, there are no guarantees (because I still refuse to believe the Jenner girls are a thing).

Weatherman Invites Dog on Set, Immediately Regrets It

Mike Sobel is the weatherman for the Global Edmonton Morning News.

And he came up with what seemed like a perfectly innocent and adorable idea for a live television segment last week:

Why not relay the impending weather to viewers while hanging out on set with Ripple, a brindle mastiff mix.

But Sobel quickly learned why this wasn’t exactly the best idea: Ripple doesn’t like to sit or stand still. He does like, however, to eat through his leash and jump up on the nearest human.

You’ve gotta love live television, don’t you?

And at least Sobel can find solace in the fact that he isn’t alone when it comes to on-air reporter snafus.

Remember the reporter who thought Samuel L. Jackson was Laurence Fishburne? Or the reporter who was robbed while reporting on a robbery?!?

Relive some of the most awkward moments in news history here:

Duchess Kate wears plaid McQueen for her first public event in months: lovely?

127936PCN_Catherine12

Yay!!!! Duchess Kate finally came to a scheduled event. She didn’t cancel at the last minute! This is Kate first public appearance since her second pregnancy was announced. It’s also her first public event since August 7th (the Tower of London appearance with William and Harry). Kate is said to be in the beginning of her second trimester and the worst of her hyperemesis gravidarum seems to be past. It was also announced over the weekend that Kate is due in April… doing the math, that means that she’s probably about 13-14 weeks along, I’m guessing. When the palace announced her due date, they also stressed the fact that Kate is expecting “a baby,” as in NOT twins. Just FYI.

As for this appearance today, Kate and William joined the Queen in welcoming the president of Singapore, Tony Tan Keng Yam, at Buckingham Palace. There was some sort of carriage procession. Kate wore a plaid Alexander McQueen coatdress which is utterly appropriate. It’s a demure, professional length and the fabric is heavy enough to ensure no “flouncy skirt blow-ups” or Marilyn Moments. Kate also wore a Jane Taylor hat. You can read more about the event here.

As I said, I think Kate looks completely appropriate. The coatdress is boringly pretty and smart, her hair isn’t flying all over the place and she’s put on some much-needed pregnancy weight, which is good. I’m glad she’s able to keep some food down. I hope this is the first of many appearances she makes during this pregnancy!

Kate is also due to attend the Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2014 awards in London tonight. Since she wore McQueen during the day, I’m thinking…Stella McCartney?

Joan Rivers Ordered "Burn Book" Diaries to be Published After Her Death; Tell-All Reportedly Contains Shocking Revelations!

Now that Joan Rivers’ cause of death has been determined, the world can stop focusing on the events of her final days and get back to the lifetime of work that made her a household name for generations.

R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014)


R.I.P. Joan Rivers (1933-2014). She will never be forgotten.

Joan was frequently brilliant, but just as often scathing, brutal, and relentless in her assessments of other celebs.

From claiming Kristen Stewart slept her way to fame to accusing Miley Cyrus of incest, Joan never seemed to hold anything back, but now sources close to the legendary comic are claiming that she saved her best (and the worst) for last.

“Joan requested that after she is gone, her personal diaries be turned into a book,” a source tells Radar Online. “The problem is, they are having a hard time shopping it around because of how over-the-top defamatory it is.”

“Joan bashes celebrities and politicians in first-hand accounts throughout her life. Among her biggest revelations is that President Obama is gay, which is something she joked about while she was alive.”

Wow…Well, if that’s the sort of thing her people are offering as a preview, we can only imagine the kind of revelations that are found throughout the rest of the book.

Naturally, whoever publishes the book is certain to face a barrage of lawsuits, which is probably exactly why Joan requested that it not be published until after she was dead. 

She may have come off as entirely unfiltered, but Rivers also knew how to avoid unnecessary trouble.

The book seems certain to be published at some point, at which time, Joan will be defended by a bunch of lawyers she’s probably never met and she’ll anger a slew of celebs who have no one left to rail at. Surely, that’s a last laugh the legendary comic has had in mind for years.

Joan Hosts the Tonight Show


Joan was a frequent guest and fill-in host on Johnny Carson’s Tonight Show. She and Carson never spoke again after she launched a rival late night show.

The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5 Recap: It’s the Plague!

The Blacklist got its Da Vinci Code on for The Blacklist Season 2 Episode 5.

The latest installment of this NBC hit was all about secret organizations and hidden maps in priceless works of art. And let’s not forget about those plague-ridden bones.

The concept of terrorists using biological warfare is certainly a very real and a very scary one, but a group digging up ancient bones in order release the plague seems a little ridiculous.

Not that The Blacklist is really aiming for realism on a weekly basis, of course.

Once Samir and Liz were exposed, it was obvious a cure for this disease would be found So there was scarcely any drama to be wrought from their temporary quarantine.

Still, we’re assuming most viewers were okay with this because there main focus was on Red and Liz. Did the episode reveal any more about their relationship?

Red was anxious to track down a woman implied to be his daughter, though never confirmed, and he relied used both on his criminal and his legal resources to do so.

Liz was jealous. But not jealous enough to reveal that Tom is hidden behind her basement door.

In the end, Red tracked down the girl in question, Zoe Dantonio, and she does look a lot like Liz.

But it remains unclear what this means and we’re left to wonder for another week whether Red is actually Liz’s dad. Sigh.

Is everyone else as frustrated as we are by the series dragging out this key plot point? Would you like to see it resolved sooner than later?

Go watch The Blacklist online via TV Fanatic if you need to catch up and sound off now!
