Reality Star Books AREN'T Selling…With Exceptions

reality star books not selling with exceptions

We see books by reality stars everywhere…but are we actually buying them???

According to THR, we're definitely buying Bethenny Frankel's first two books, which in total sold 480,000 copies!

Despite Bethenny's success, we're NOT buying books by NeNe Leakes, Jill Zarin, and Danielle Staub, who all sold fewer than 10,000 copies! Yikes!

Teresa Giudice's cookbook has fared better though, with 100,000 copies solid…but then we've got Snooki who only sold 35,000 copies and The Situation who sold 15,000 copies….

Ah well! Even if these reality-star-turned-authors lose shelf space at Barnes and Noble, they'll always have a place at Rutgers University! Ha!

Have U bought any books by reality stars? If so, what did U think of them?

Real Housewives Of New York Husband Simon Van Kempen Records A Single, Unfortunately!

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooKim ZolciakReal HousewivesDanielle StaubReality TV

Wow. Please excuse us while we find some sort of crawl space for us to hide in. We need to cry this one out for a good 20 minutes.

In case Kim Zolciak, Countess LuAnn, and Danielle Staub's shrieking, hyena voices doused in auto-tune and despair weren't embarrassing enough for Real Housewives franchise, some HOrrific, cruel person decided to let the New York castmember Alex McCord's eccentric husband, Simon van Kempen, record his own single.

And yes, it's worse than you could have ever anticipated.

Ch-ch-check it out (above)…if you dare!

Yeah. Hopefully this will be the last time we ever really have to think about this…or those PANTS.

Geesh.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Already Bringing The Drama! Teresa Punched In The Face!

If this is the kind of crazy for which we're in store for in season three, then who needs Danielle Staub? Holy hell!

Sources close to production of The Real Housewives of New Jersey have revealed that when the cast members and their families were filming down in the Dominican Republic last month, poor Teresa Giudice was punched in the face by a bar patron, leading to a brawl that ended with authorities being forced to intervene!

According to the insider, Teresa, along with fellow Housewives Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile, Melissa Gorga - as well as their respective husbands, and Caroline's kids Albie, Chris, and Lauren - were celebrating their vacation late into the evening at the Punta Cana Hard Rock Resort, when they accidentally spilled champagne on a woman, which caused her husband to lose it!

Sources explain:

“It was late, they were on vacation, and she was just having fun. She opened the champagne and just started spraying it everywhere and it went all over this woman near her. It was crazy, [the woman's husband] he got really angry and punched Teresa in the face! Joe [Giudice], Albie and Chris were trying to protect Teresa and they just grabbed the guy and started fighting, and then people joined in. Bravo helped to break up the fight. Everyone was involved. It became a massive scene.”

And it got so bad that when the cops came, they detained the three Bravo stars, as well as the instigators, later identified as Adolfo Arriolla and Jason Gomez.

A representative from the authorities explains:

“Usually when there’s a fight we take one guy, but this time we took everybody."

Local attorneys were brought in to apparently smooth over the situation, and thankfully everything has since seemed to be resolved!

Geesh! What a mess!

According to the insider, however, the fight will NOT air on the upcoming season.

Can't say we blame them, especially after the way Snooki's assault was insensitively used by MTV as a means to attract an audience when Jersey Shore first hit the scene last year.

Hopefully we'll get to see at least SOME of the pre/post footage, however! The whole thing sounds NUTS!

Poor Teresa, though! We don't care how inebriated he was, no man has ANY business laying his hands on a woman. Absolutely deplorable.

Feel better, gurl! Hopefully the whole mess didn't completely ruin your vacation.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey's Teresa Has Some Pretty Shocking Feelings About Danielle!

| Filed under: Real HousewivesDanielle Staub

WTF?!

This is it. Hell has frozen over. The end is coming.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice recently sat down to discuss what's coming up next season on the smash Bravo reality series, and when asked about her nefarious former co-star Danielle Staub, she had a pretty SHOCKING response!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

We appreciate the sentiment, bb, but personally, we're going to have to disagree with you!

Unless producers have found someone even WORSE (dare we say Kim G?!) to succeed her, if that's possible!

Ugh. This is all a little too unsettling.

We suppose we'll know the answer soon enough.

Thoughts??

Here we go again! The lawsuit is officially on!

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey castmember Danielle Staub's ex-husband, Kevin Maher, has filed a $10 million lawsuit against Simon & Schuster, the publishing company responsible for the reality star's tell-all, The Naked Truth, because he believes that they knowingly published false information about him!

According to the legal documents, Maher claims that they "failed to use reasonable care to determine the truth or falsity" of several claims Staub made, including that he beat her so badly she had to be hospitalized with a concussion and "assorted contusions."

Why anyone would willingly publish anything that woman wrote under the assumption that it was the truth is beyond us, but who knows?

It will be very inneresting to see how this case develops!

Wow. We really thought we'd heard it all.

Guess not!

Now that Kim Zolciak, Countess LuAnn, and Danielle Staub have paved the way for all tone-deaf Housewives to drop their own special odes to auto-tune singles, it was only a matter of time before one of the Gay Housewives (proper name: castmembers of The A-List) to follow suit!

And this one takes the cringe-worthy cake!

Check out Reichen Lehmkuhl's truly remarkable vocal-stylingz (above)!

Yeah. That actually happened.

Former Real Housewife Danielle Staub's House Gets A Real Break-In

| Filed under: Legal MattersReal HousewivesDanielle StaubHalloweenReality TV

danielle staubs house gets a break in

Life is tough when you're a former Real Housewife of New Jersey!

First, Danielle Staub was served legal papers from her ex-boyfriend while walking down the red carpet at a Halloween event last month, and now someone has broken into her home!

Here's what Captain Clark of the Wayne, NJ police department had to say about the break-in:

"There were break-ins at Danielle's house and two other neighbors. We do not have any evidence that the tour had anything to do with the break-in. This appears to be a random break-in and has nothing to do with the show. We do not have a suspect at this time. Another house had their security system camera ripped off but they did not do that at Danielle's house."

To make things even worse, it's not even her home anymore…or it won't be soon. Staub has been ordered to sell her house, which is worth over $1 million, but she has yet to hand over the keys to her court-appointed real estate agent.

It really is a hard knock life for former Real Housewives of New Jersey!

Do U feel bad for Danielle Staub? Or not so much?
