'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' Season 6 Finale Recap:

"It's a different day and everything's changed." Cousin Kathy's words refer to The Guidices' sentencing, but can easily describe the whole lot of them.

Although Dina's Ladybug Charity is the main focus of the episode, everyone's life goes through some sort of transformation: Melissa and Joe Gorga break ground for their next McMansion, which is going to be even bigger and more garish then their present abode; and Amber cut her hair for cancer. She's been growing it for five years, and now will donate the locks to make a wig for a child.

The one thing that hasn't changed is that Teresa Apre...

‘RHONJ’ Season 6 Episode 13 Recap: 'Sorry, Not Sorry'

This week’s title implies that, as Elton John sang, sorry seems to be the hardest word…or maybe it just refers to what a sorry bunch they all are.

Now that everyone has returned from Florida, the whole group is back on the party circuit: Rino and Teresa are having a “tasting” to introduce the menu of their new restaurant, and Dina’s charity event Project Ladybug is coming up.

Jacqueline and Chris go over to Kathy and Rich's house where they and Rosie are making cannolis, which were requested by Teresa Aprea for her party. Nicole shows up to pick up the pastries for her sister and ends up ...

Rumor Patrol: George Clooney Runs Out On Honeymoon, Nick Cannon
You can't go one week without hearing a ridiculous story involving some of your favorite celebrities. Thankfully, the Starpulse Rumor Patrol is here to sort out what's real and what's fake.

Trouble In Paradise? George Clooney Runs Out On Honeymoon: Instead of spending time with beautiful new wife Amal Alamuddin, George Clooney hightailed it out of their romantic English getaway to New York City to meet up with some friends.

Verdict: True, Kind Of: Clooney did go to New York City, but for work. Clooney surprised fans attending the annual ComicCon convention with an appearance to promote ...

'RHONJ' Season 6 Episode 12 Recap: 'Pack Your Bags And Get Out!'

There’s bag packing all around with the Guidices heading off to prison, Jacqueline and her husband Chris moving out of their house, and Amber and Jim thrown out of Boca.

Now that it’s been reported that Teresa will serve a 15-month sentence for fraud, and when she’s out, Joe will serve 41-months, watching their storyline is a bit anti-climactic. On the show, they're still at the stage where they don't know what's to come. Since we do though, there’s no tension.

This week, Joe announces he’s taking Teresa out for a date night – really a date weekend – in New York City, leaving the kids wit...

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Finale: What We've Learned From The Daters

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Finale: What We've Learned From T
I won’t front: I really liked this show. It put the "real" back in reality TV for me, as I think it captured so many of the scenarios that those on the hunt for “the one” deal with day to day. I also appreciated that the cast of very nice people got friendly, and we were spared the usual table turning, back biting, screaming matches among the stars. Even when two of the cast members had a situation where the same man showed interest in both of them, there was no predicable you-stole-my-man “cat fight”; the one who felt spurned kept the focus on the man for being a rather flighty player.

I ...

It's the First Responders party all over again, but this time it's the men of the Garden State who are about to let the fists fly.

Teresa Guidice is probably glad she chose not to join them down south. She stayed home with her family, not only her nuclear one, but Joe's clan, which includes his parents as well as his brother and his brood. "I'm protected from the world," said Teresa about being with her extended family. Basically because she knows that none of them are going to ask about her legal issues in person or via text like Jacqueline, whose husband Chris reached out to Joe wanting ...

'The Singles Project' Season 1 Episode 7:  Fall-ing In Love
The appeal of this show is the thrill of the chase. So now that Ericka and Lee have found each other, I'm ready to wish them well and send them on their romantic way. I'm really not interested in following their two-or-the-road Hamptons weekend where the workaholics go off the grid and leave their cell phones home. I feel our work here is done and we need to turn our attention to making sure that the rest of the cast meet their matches as well.

Perhaps they'll have the opportunity at Brian's big 3-0 birthday dinner, which is this week's event.

So, will the four remaining cast mates go sta...

'The Real Housewives Of New Jersey' Recap: S6 Ep10 The Day Of Ja
Just when you thought it was safe to go back over the George Washington Bridge: Jac is back.

The former cast member does very little in this episode except reintroduce herself to the audience as the loving mother of autistic four-year-old Nicholas. She’s still on the housewife periphery though, as her only contact is with sometime-housewife Kathy, who’s building a house that they visit. Jacqueline tells Kathy that she’s reached out to Teresa Guidice in her time of need via text message; apparently the two women have not spoken in a while. She says that even though they no longer have a rel...

'The Singles Project' S1 Ep 6 New York Date Of Mind

'The Singles Project' S1 Ep 6 New York Date Of Mind
OK, so we can all die now: Ericka and Lee are a couple. I am genuinely happy/relieved for the new twosome, as well as for the rest of us who went on what seemed like their never-ending journey with them.

I think Lee is truly swept away by his cast mate, as well as sincere in feeling, “I'm done. I don't want to date anyone else.” He's had a long-term relationship before, so we know he's capable of commitment. Aside from his interest in Ericka, I think he's also truly tired of rolling up to woman after woman, throwing his rap, doing the number exchange, meeting for coffee, and having the "So...

Cancer, colonoscopies and conspicuous consumption. This was the least entertaining episode of this show I have ever watched and would have stopped watching immediately if it were not my job to recap. It just could not end fast enough.

If you recall from last week, the NJ ladies are preparing for a Florida trip, mainly to get Teresa Guidice out of her element (where plea deals and jail sentences swirl around her), but also for the women to discuss plans for Dina’s charity event.

By the end of the hour, both Teresa G. and Amber have begged out of the vacation.

The lives of Teresa and Joe G...
