Melissa Gorga


Danielle Staub (l.) and Caroline Manzo (above).

Kevin Maher, the ex-husband of Danielle Staub and father of her two children, is suing Staub for defamation of character, and his legal team deposed Caroline Manzo, who gave testimony recently as to claims that Danielle made in her presence about Maher.  Manzo, the arch rival of Staub, was probably more than happy to talk to the court about Danielle, who she recently swore she’d never forgive or absolve for her actions toward her at the Bravo RHONJ reunion special.  Those actions include pressing charges and refusing to drop the charges against Caroline’s niece Ashley for pulling out one of Danielle’s hair extensions in an altercation at a New Jersey charity event.

The fiery Manzo, one of the matriarchs of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” was called to give a deposition in the $5 million defamation suit filed in New Jersey against Staub by her ex-husband, Kevin Maher.

Manzo was asked to recount stories that Staub allegedly divulged during a “Housewives” taping about Maher.

Manzo testified that Staub told her that Maher “beat her daily,” pushed her into prostitution, raped her on a bed of broken glass, shot — or hanged — her dog and “inserted a pistol up her vagina and played like a Russian roulette.”

Maher had this to say after Manzo’s testimony:

“I really can’t think of which is worse . . . being accused of being a rapist or being [accused of] being a dog killer,” Maher said in his own deposition. “And I’ve been accused of both, a dog-killing rapist.”

The best claim Manzo made by far was that Staub told her that Maher had Danielle so terrified and terrorized by him that she took to hiding up in a tree.  No joke.

She claimed to have been hiding in a tree at some point, afraid that when he came home he would find her and beat her. She claimed to be the victim of prostitution due to his demands, that he put her into that world, again depicting him as an absolute monster. And the only reason she stayed with him, because she feared for her life if she left.

Maher, in addition to being Danielle’s ex, also penned the tome Cop Without A Badge, which detailed Staub’s sordid past and life of crime.

I wonder as to what Caroline’s testimony would have sounded like had Danielle agreed to drop the charges against Ashley when Danielle urged her to do so in their big pow wow during the season finale, at which Caroline offered to let all other matters between her family and Danielle go in exchange for dropping the charges against Manzo’s niece.

The embattled couple, Teresa and Joe Giudice (above).

http://crackbillionair.wordpress.com/2010/09/04/real-housewives-of-nj-danielle-fired-replaced-by-teresas-sister-in-law-joe-giudice-cheating/

Just days after reports surfaced that Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law and mortal enemy, Melissa Gorga, has been added to the cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey to replace Dina Manzo, and after an In Touch Magazine report that Joe may be cheating on Teresa with a Sicilian beauty, The New York Daily News is reporting that an attorney for the Giudice’s has objected to the Giudice’s bid for bankruptcy protection because Teresa and Joe did not reveal major assets when they filed for chapter 11.

On Thursday, New Jersey attorney Roberta A. DeAngelis filed an objection to the couple’s request for protection, which they filed after discovering they were $11 million in debt, popeater.com reports.

The court document, released on Lynnchicago101′s “I Hate Jill Zarin” blog, alleges that the Giudices failed to list a $250,000 book advance Teresa received from Hyperion for her cookbook, “Skinny Italian.”

The couple also reportedly failed to disclose Teresa’s ownership of TGFabulicious - an online boutique that sells accessories and clothing - as well as her husband Joe’s ownership of another company.

According to DeAngelis, “the Defendants have knowingly and fraudulently made false oaths in this case” as Giudice’s contract with Hyperion was reportedly signed before the couple’s petition for bankruptcy protection.

What?  Teresa and Joe have been lying about their bankruptcy?  I can’t say as we are shocked since…we called it.

Congratulations to our friend Lynnchicago101 (I hate Jill Zarin blog) for finding the latest dirt on Teresa and Joe.  Lynn has kicked a lot of readers our way, and we thank her for that as well.
