Watch: The First 13 Minutes Of ‘Jersey Shore’ Season 2

"I need to get ma ass to Miami"

Just a few weeks ago we learned that production on the second season of Jersey Shore wrapped in Miami Beach, FL and today we get to see the first 13 minutes of the upcoming second season of the show. Yes, believe it or not, the folks at MTV have managed to piece together the first footage to be seen from Jersey Shore season 2 which was filmed in Miami Beach … check it out right here:

The biggest shock for me from watching this footage was hearing Nicole Snooki Polizzi pontificate on political matters like taxes on tanning. I mean … yeah. Didn’t get enough GTL goodness from the first season of Jersey Shore? Well, worry not … as you can see from this footage, there’s gonna be a whole lotta the same stuff we saw last season in the upcoming new season. Jersey Shore season 2 premieres on July 29, who’s excited … and don’t lie!

‘Showgirls: Exposed’ Releases A Second Movie Trailer

Not to be confused with 'Showgirl', the other planned 'Showgirls' sequel film

Remember back in February we learned that director Marc Vorlander was planning to release a sequel to the 1995 NC-17 rated box-office-bomb-turned-cult-classic film Showgirls entitled Showgirls: Exposed? You may recall that we got to see a very confusing, partially NSFW trailer for Showgirls 2 … and then just a few days later we got to see another trailer for another planned sequel to Showgirls entitled Showgirl which stars original Showgirls actress Rena Riffel. Yes, it’s all confusing, I know. Well, today we get to see a second NSFW trailer for Vorlander‘s Showgirls 2 … which, I’m sorry to say, is even worse than the first trailer we saw:

For as long as I can recall, the world has been clamoring for a sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s 1995 lap-dancing epic, Showgirls. It’s been fifteen long years, but filmmaker Marc Vorlander is ready to make our dreams a reality with his newest project, Showgirls: Exposed, and we’ve got the four minute promo clip to prove it. Hopefully you have some eye rinse handy, because you’re gonna need it after watching this thing. Trying to catalogue all of the Boll-esque hilarity contained in this trailer would be impossible. Do you talk about the wonky title cards? What exactly is a “photoplay” and who thought “Disturbing. Provoking. Completely Shaved.” was a good tagline? Do you focus on the cheesy song that plays over the whole thing or the hilariously awful CGI gunshot to the head effect? The options are endless … We don’t learn much about Showgirls: Exposed’s story from the preview, but you have to wonder if it even matters. For a teaser filled with naked women dancing and grinding on each other, it may be the most un-erotic thing I’ve ever seen — and yet, I feel almost compelled to seek out the full version when it releases sometime “soon.” Well played, Marc Vorlander, well played.

No, I’m sorry … this movie looks like complete and utter crap. As much as I’d love to see a sequel to Showgirls, which has just been re-released in celebration of its 15th anniversary, I really DO NOT want to watch this garbage. I’m much more interested in seeing Rena Riffel‘s sequel Showgirl instead. This movie just looks beyond bad … like, for serious. What do y’all think … would YOU see this movie?

Prince William Plays Polo For Charity

Light on top

Last month we learned the sad news that Princes William and Harry of Wales lost a beloved pony after it suffered a fatal heart attack during a polo match … but this weekend, Wills was back up on another horse as he participated in another polo match to raise funds for his favorite charities. Here are photos of Prince Wills (who really seems to be thinning out a lot on top) at this weekend’s polo match:

The prince, a keen player, helped his team Umbogo beat Cirencester Park four to three-and-half. Several hundred spectators watched the Prince, 27, play an “excellent” game at the Cirencester Park polo club, Glos., on Sunday. Organisers said the teams helped raise an undisclosed amount of money for two of his charities, Centrepoint and Mountain Rescue, which he is patrons of. “He did very well,” the game’s umpire Jason Dixon, the former England polo captain told The Daily Telegraph. “He was very reliable, very effective and very accurate. I believe he enjoyed it. He won it and it was a very fast and fair game. “We only blew the whistle four times, which is incredible.” Organisers said Kate Middleton, his 28 year-old girlfriend, did not attend the game after speculation the pair would announce their engagement last week fizzled. Prince William was earlier photographed arriving at the game wearing his spectacles while driving his Audi A5. The game comes after Prince Harry’s favourite pony, Drizzle, last month collapsed and died of a heart attack after he had been riding the animal at a charity polo match at Coworth Park in Ascot, Berkshire. The prince was said to be “very upset” at the death of the 10-year-old brown and white mare that was also ridden by Prince William and the Prince of Wales. Drizzle was one of a number of polo ponies stabled close to the Prince of Wales’s Highgrove estate near Tetbury in Glos.

Well, it’s a good sign that Wills isn’t letting the sad death of his horse deter him from playing one of his favorite sports. The fact that he participated and helped raise so much money for his fave charities makes this story all the sweeter. I just love it when the rich and famous do whatever they can to lend a helping hand to the less fortunate, don’t you?

Lindsay Lohan’s SCRAM Bracelet Goes Off During An Afterparty

She's got some 'splainin' to do

Uh oh … it looks like all that good behavior that Lindsay Lohan has been exhibiting since she was forced to wear a court-ordered SCRAM alcohol-monitoring bracelet a couple of weeks ago might all be for naught. As you may recall, Lindsay made an appearance at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards on Sunday night … but she also made a few appearances at a few afterparties later Sunday night/early Monday morning. It was during one of those afterparties that Lindsay‘s SCRAM bracelet was mysteriously triggered … and now she’ll have to explain why to the judge overseeing her probation case:

Lindsay Lohan has some explaining to do. Her court-ordered alcohol-monitoring bracelet, called a SCRAM device, was trigged Sunday evening during an MTV Music Awards afterparty, according to a source close to the case. It remains unclear whether alcohol was detected in her system or if the device was tampered with. Either one would alert authorities. Lohan, 23, could face jail time if the judge in her case rules that the actress violated the conditions of her bail – which include abstaining from alcohol and submitting to random drug testing. Judge Marsha Revel is expected to receive the SCRAM report soon, the source says, and could order Lohan in for an immediate bail revocation hearing. Lohan’s attorney, Shawn Chapman Holley, wasn’t immediately available for comment. The SCRAM checks for traces of alcohol in the wearer’s perspiration. The device must be worn at all times.

Ah but the very clever L. Lo immediately posted messages on her official Twitter profile hoping to deflect attention from the flashing SCRAM bracelet on her ankle. THIS is how she explained the lights flashing on her SCRAM bracelet on Twitter yesterday:

Haha! Last night-My friend Johnny put a light up bracelet on my boots and someone asked me if my SCRAM was lighting up RED…. / Well it was a light up bracelet from the bathroom-regardless..paparazzi now see through black suede fringe Christian Louboutin boots? Wow!

Niiiiiiice try, Linds. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what the judge has to say about her convenient little explanation. You know, I was starting to actually be proud of Lindsay and her good behavior … but it’s startin’ to look like she may have fallen off the wagon. What do y’all think … did Lindsay really get busted by her SCRAM bracelet or do you think this is merely a mistake?

‘Make Me A Supermodel’s Ronnie Kroell Does ‘Playgirl’ Magazine

Who's in the mood for a little P33N?

Back in March we learned that Ronnie Kroell from season 1 of Bravo TV‘s Make Me a Supermodel (a show that many of you very likely did not watch) posed for Playgirl magazine, ready to show the world what his mama gave him. Kroell‘s Playgirl shoot was getting some buzz because it was reported that he would be “erect” in the photospread (hey, I’m only passing along the info here). In fact, Playgirl hadn’t enjoyed as much attention for one of their photospreads since Levi Johnston appeared disappointingly P33Nless within their publication back in November and then again this past February. As you might expect, Ronnie‘s totally nekkid photos have made their way to the Internets for our viewing pleasure:

Now, of course, you’re going to have to pick up a print copy of Playgirl magazine (on newsstands now) to see this first batch of nekkid photos of Ronnie Kroell and find out the hard truth about whether or not he is featured as was promised but a subscription to will not only get you this first batch of photos but also the promise of MORE nudie pics in the weeks to come. After the jump, check out a sneak peek of what Ronnie looks like in his new issue of Playgirl magazine … More »

Jennifer Lopez Releases Her 16th Celebrity Fragrance

'Love and Glamour' promises Lights, Camera, Passion!

The ceaseless onslaught of celebrity fragrances continues to plague us as we learn that Jennifer Lopez is ready to release her 16th (!!!) celebrity fragrance onto the already over-saturated market. J. Lo‘s latest offering will be called Love and Glamour … here is the first promo photo for the smell:

Lights, Camera, Passion! Jennifer Lopez dominates the fragrance counter once again as she releases her 16th fragrance this Fall 2010 aimed toward vintage Hollywood glamour. Designed to be “a modern expression of femininity,” JLo introduces Love and Glamour perfume for women! This careful blend of fruit and exotic blossoms address red carpet allure as it blends decadently with sensual musk. Having one of the highest selling celebrity fragrance lines, her fragrances are staged to sell for a whopping $150 million this year alone. Lopez says, “I am very competitive, but I don’t look at it [as a competition]. I’ve always thought that authenticity, at the end of the day, wins, and the cream always rises to the top. I really don’t worry about other people, because I’m in competition with myself.” She added, “I feel like a lot of people get into it just for money — it’s like, ‘Here, I can create another business.’ For me, whenever I get involved with something, I get really involved. Every business that I do get involved with is something that is super close to my heart.” Love and Glamours sexy top notes begin with delicious Italian mandarin, guava and nectarine pulp that fall into a breathtaking heart of water lily, coconut orchid, jasmine petals and orange flower absolute. Its dry down entails sandalwood, amber and sensual musk which exhibit a traditional smell, one that captures the invigorating heart of Jennifer Lopez herself. “I drive [Coty] a little bit crazy because it’s always not signature enough,” says the actress/singer. “I go back and say things like, ‘Can we push the sandalwood a little bit more, can we make a tiny bit more sexy?’ To translate that into actual chemistry is a difficult thing. Then they go back and say, ‘What does she mean by sexy?’ And I’m like, ‘You know if you [take] that little piece that smells a little bit like wood but has a little bit of musk? But I just want you to add a little bit of sweetness. Can you do that for me?’ And then I think we are in the right direction. And then they come with one or two variations and I say, ‘No, that’s not it.’ It’s a long process.”

Top: Italian Mandarin, Guava, Nectarine Pulp
Middle: Jasmine Petals, Water Lily, Coconut Orchid, Orange Flower Absolute
Bottom: Sandalwood, Amber, Musk

JLo’s Love and Glamour will be available this Fall in a lovely eau de parfum spray. It’s bottle design represents “a woman in an evening gown attending a glamorous red carpet event.” Jennifer Lopez is, and always has been, the advertising face for her own campaigns. This time, she’s all dolled up, displaying the rare golden age of 1940′s Hollywood glamour. The Jennifer Lopez complete fragrance collection includes Glow, Glow After Dark, Blue Glow, Glow Sunkissed, Deseo for men and women, Deseo Forever, Live, Live Luxe, Live Platinum, Love at First Glow, Miami Glow, My Glow, and Still.

Damn … 16 smells. I thought Paris Hilton was bad with her 10 fragrances but … yeah, J. Lo takes the cake. I can’t really speak to how any of J. Lo‘s many odors smell but she must be doing something right if she’s up to #16. Does Love and Glamour sound like something YOU’D like to smell like?

Revealed: The Reported Logo For ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

The real deal?

Last Friday we got our first look at the title logo that will reportedly be used in next year’s Marvel Comics film Thor and on Sunday we got our first look at the official title logo for next year’s DC Comics film Green Lantern. Today we get to see the title logo that is purported to be used in next year’s other Marvel Comics film Captain America: The First Avenger:

The Captain America movie officially begins filming this month in London, England and Manhattan Beach, CA, with an already confirmed cast of Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes), Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter), Hugo Weaving (Johann Schmidt/Red Skull) and Samuel L. Jackson (Nick Fury). Today, courtesy of another reliable source that goes by the name RealIrOnMaN, we have what may possibly be the official logo for the film, which is slated to hit theaters July 22nd, 2011. As opposed to the tentative THOR movie logo … there isn’t anything stellar about this teaser as it fits the Captain America theme fans expect.

While I must admit this title logo isn’t early as interesting or exciting as the official concept art that we saw last week of the new Captain America costume, I am posting it here for the sake of completion. I’m pretty surprised by how much information we are seeing from Thor, Green Lantern and Captain America so far in advance of their releases in theaters next year. I suppose with San Diego Comic Con just over a month away, the movie studios have to come up with exciting stuff to share with eager fans to ensure their loyalty to these movies that haven’t even been filmed yet. I, for one, am not complaining at all … I love all of these characters and I cannot wait to see them come to life on the big screen. I am happy to pass along any tiny bit of new info that comes along. I’m telling you, the year is going to fly by … it will not be long at all before we will actually be able to see these films in theaters.

David Beckham Becomes An Athletic Supporter

Also becomes brand spokesperson for Yahoo!

Because of a foot injury suffered a couple of months ago, soccer star David Beckham has been relegated to the sidelines as the 2010 FIFA World Cup Soccer Tournament gets underway this month in South Africa. Becks has already begun his duties as the official athletic supporter for Team England (as you can see below) and has also signed on to be the official brand spokesman for Yahoo! Here are a few photos of Becks cheering on England at Moruleng Stadium in Lesetlheng North West Province, South Africa yesterday during a friendly match between Platinum Stars and England (with a really cute little boy on his lap) and the deets of his new deal with Yahoo!

Yahoo Inc said it signed British soccer star David Beckham as a brand ambassador ahead of the World Cup tournament in a move to draw more users to the online media company’s products. Under the deal announced on Tuesday, Beckham will be featured on Yahoo websites and products exclusively before and after the World Cup, which begins in South Africa on Friday, as well as in company marketing. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The deal runs through the end of September to take advantage of the start of 2010-2011 European soccer seasons, and the first print and outdoor ads featuring the English soccer star will appear in Britain later this week, said Andrew Cocker, head of Yahoo marketing in Britain. “Yahoo will allow me to interact one on one with as many football fans as possible talking about the game I love,” Beckham said in a statement. However, due to commitments with the English soccer team, Beckham will not comment on the 2010 World Cup during the tournament, Cocker said. “It’s not just a World Cup deal for us,” he said in a telephone interview. “This is a partnership with David going through into the course of next season.” The Beckham deal is another step in Yahoo’s push to boost its sports offerings … As part of the deal, Beckham, who is not playing in the World Cup due to a ruptured Achilles tendon, will be featured in a multimillion-dollar global marketing campaign in select markets throughout and beyond the World Cup. Beckham played in the previous three World Cups. The campaign, which focuses on highlighting specific products, services and experiences on Yahoo, is meant to drive more people to search, use and talk about Yahoo, the company said. Fans will have access to exclusive content from Beckham in addition to Yahoo’s existing microsites, mobile experiences, fantasy games and search tools for more than 20 countries. Three main components to the deal include a David Beckham page within Yahoo Sport’s coverage of the World Cup, where Beckham will share his thoughts on playing in three consecutive tournaments; the opportunity for soccer fans to ask Beckham questions through various Yahoo channels; and Beckham’s participation in the marketing campaign.

Man … even when the man is sitting on his butt watching soccer he is making oodles of money. I have to admit, tho, that it’s pretty smart on Yahoo!‘s part to team up with David Beckham. I’m very curious to see what sort of exclusive Beckham content Yahoo! plans to offer … even tho I’m not a huge sports fan, I’d be more apt to check in with Yahoo! on the off chance that I get to see some fun Becks stuff. But … that is still a bit of a ways away … right now, we should be focusing on the World Cup. Team USA faces Team England in competitive play on June 12. I ain’t gonna lie … I’m excited. I’ll be cheering for a major US upset of England … who will YOU be cheering for?

Joe Manganiello Is Ready To Bear His Bod For Season 3 Of ‘True Blood’

As am I!!!

We are just 5 days away from the third season premiere of True Blood on HBO and today, courtesy of Popwrap, we get to know a little better the actor who will bring the werewolf character Alcide to life on the show. Feast your eyes on this amazingly hawt photo of actor Joe Manganiello and read about how he got his body in to sick shape to faithfully portray Alcide on the show:

Today marks the day we can finally say, there is less than one week until the premiere of “True Blood” season three! It’s an event that’s long in the making and one I plan to celebrate by bringing you exclusive cast interviews throughout the week, so stayed tuned for that. But for now, I’ll give you a taste of my interview with new castmember Joe Manganiello, who plays werewolf Alcide. The actor went all Taylor Lautner for the role, seriously bulking up in order to convincingly bring his character to life … as you can plainly see in the brand new still above “Vampires can get away with having very slight builds and the audience will still believe that they’re super powerful,” Joe tells PopWrap. “Werewolves are animals and in my mind they should be very muscular. Not an extra ounce of fat on them. Really ripped. I wanted people to look at Alcide and think, ‘wow, he’s a super strong animal.’” Another difference between playing claws vs. fangs? “It was important for me to get a tan,” Joe says. “Because, well, I can and it would offset my character in relation to the vampires.” Joe was also determined to make his incarnation of Alcide live up to the version author Charlaine Harris had created in “The Southern Vampire Mysteries” series. “Charlaine went into a lot of detail in the books about Alcide being giant. About having arms that look like boulders, like Sookie could do pull-ups on them,” Joe says. Luckily the actor had a good head start. “My mom is half Austrian and comes from a long line of giant athletes. I remember my mom doing double bicep flexes and her arms were just ripped. She had like Madonna arms. She would flex and say, “that’s where you get it kid.” So I have my mother to thank.” As do we all Joe. “True Blood” kicks off its third season Sunday June 13 at 9pm on HBO

HMMMM … I’ve got me a problem, y’all. I have been very clear about how much I love the pasty white and lithe vampires on True Blood but now that they had to go and throw a tanned and beefy werewolf into the mix, I might have to switch my alleigence. To be honest, I never thought anyone would be able to take my eye off of hottie Alexander Skarsgård … but then comes along this Joe Manganiello fellow and I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I’m stymied, y’all. It looks like I’ll just have to share my lust love betwixt both Alexander and Joe … which, to be honest, doesn’t sound like a bad place to be ;) Oh and let’s not forget the hotness known as Ryan Kwanten … I dunno … am I just being too fickle? Is it wrong to spread my admiration between so many supernatural men?

‘Spartacus’ Star Andy Whitfield Is Cancer-Free, Ready To Get Back To Work

"I'm raring to go"

In early March we learned the shocking news that actor Andy Whitfield, star of the Starz dramatic series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin lymphoma and would immediately undergo cancer treatment. I am very happy to update his condition today by passing along the happy news that not only is Whitfiled cancer-free but he is ready and rearin’ to go back to work on Spartacus! Deadline Hollywood has all the deets:

Spartacus star Andy Whitfield has been given a clean bill of health and is already training for his return to the set of the Starz drama series. “I’m raring to go,” Whitfiled said in a phone interview from New Zealand. Fans will be able to meet the actor at next month’s Comic Con where Whitfield will make an appearance along with other actors and producers from Starz’s breakout series Spartacus: Blood and Sand. Welsh-born Whitfield was diagnosed with treatable Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma in early March during a routine checkup just as the show was about to start shooting Season 2. He began treatment immediately while production was put on hold. About five weeks ago, tests revealed that Whitfield was clear of cancer and three weeks ago, he completed his treatment. Whitfield, who thanked Starz executives for sticking with him and supporting him through his ordeal, has already started his own training for what is a very physically demanding role and will start vigorous boot camp training at the end of July. While Whitfield was undergoing treatment, Starz announced a six-episode Spartacus prequel focused on two other characters from the series, played by Lucy Lawless and John Hannah. Whitfield will appear in two of the episodes and is expected to get in front of the camera sometime in October, giving him plenty of time to get in shape. (He notes that for the first season, he only had a month to prepare.) Upon wrapping the prequel, the cast and crew are expected to segue directly into filming Season 2 of the original series. Whitfield shaved his head after starting to lose his hear during chemo but it is already growing back and he will have his trademark Spartacus hairdo shortly. For 35-year-old Whitfield, the news of his cancer diagnosis came out of the blue just as the first season of Spartacus was breaking ratings records for Starz week after week and production on Season 2 was about to begin. “After the initial shock – I was a healthy young man and had no idea that this could happen — it was frustrating that the first season was ending on such a high note and we could’ve been rolling into season 2.” But after that initial shock came “time to heal, figure things out and spend time with my family,” he said. And the experience has thought him some important lessons, like: “Stay in the now and enjoy every moment.”

Awww … this is amazing news. I cannot, for the life of me, imagine what it must be like to be told that you have cancer in your body but it sounds very much like Whitfield decided to battle the disease head-on in order to get it OUT of his system. You may note that Whitfield‘s cancer battle sounds very similar to that of Dexter star Michael C. Hall. He, too, was diagnosed with the disease and immediately went into treatment and is now also cancer-free and is already back to work. I am just so happy and pleased to know that both men are doing well. Here’s hoping they both remain happy, healthy and totally cancer-free! Isn’t this the best news ever?

‘Real Housewives’ Star Teresa Giudice Files For Bankruptcy

Danielle Staub releases a sex tape & the NYC 'Housewives' reunite to fight

Wooo, lawdy! We’ve got a lot of fun stuff to get into about the insanely tacky yet deliciously entertaining castmembers of Bravo TV‘s Real Housewives series. First, you may recall that last week we learned that it was reported that Teresa Giudice, who stars on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and her family are $11+ million dollars in debt despite the lavish lifestyle they purport to enjoy on the reality TV show. Today we learn that the Giudice family has been forced to file for bankruptcy because they are B-R-O-K-E:

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is breaking her silence after it was discovered that she and her husband Joe filed for bankruptcy. “While this is a personal matter, I realize that certain aspects of my private life will always be subject to scrutiny and distortion,” Giudice says in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. “What is true is that due to the economy, most of my husband’s real estate ventures failed despite his hard work and effort. As a result, we looked to the Bankruptcy Court for a ‘fresh start.’” Indeed court papers filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark, N.J., show that Giudice, 38, and her husband filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which requires liquidation of assets in order to pay creditors, in October of last year. Papers also show that the couple had to undergo credit counseling, and were awarded a temporary stay on payments for their Cadillac Escalade and mortgage payments for properties. In the documents filed, the pair declared their personal assets, which include real property and personal property, as $2,261,150. But their liabilities — $8,709,831.34 — far exceeded that number. In addition, the couple had to assess their monthly income. Combining Joe’s salary as owner of G&G Stucco and Stone Specialist in Clifton, N.J., with Teresa’s income from Bravo and “monthly assistance from family members,” that number totaled $16,583.33. Their expenditures, including their mortgage, food, clothing, dry cleaning, health insurance and other expenses, total $16,582. The couple owes more than $33,000 on various store credit cards, $85,000 for home repairs and $91,000 for materials used to build their new home. During the first season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Giudice, who famously flipped a table on the show, and her family moved into their $1.7 million mansion in Towaco, N.J. The reality star, who was often filmed treating her daughters to new clothing and expensive toys, was also depicted flashing stacks of cash while furnishing the house. And in a recent episode on the second season, she boasted of spending significant funds on her daughter Gia‘s spa birthday party. “When people fall, the way to success is to get up and learn from our mistakes,” Giudice says. “We are in that process.”

Dang … when hypocrites fall, they fall hard. If you watch the show (and you should, it’s a crazy freakfest each and every week) you had to know that this pitiful family was living way beyond their means. Considering how disgustingly flippant Guidice enjoys flaunting her “wealth” on the show, it just seems karmically right that she get slapped down hard in the real world for her outrageously irresponsible behavior. Guidice recently gave birth to her 4th child and never seemed to care about planning financially for her children’s future. Hopefully this will serve as a lesson.

In other Real Housewives of New Jersey news, castmember Danielle Staub is allegedly about to make her sex tape debut! Referred to as a “prostitution whore” by her fellow castmates, Staub (née Beverly Ann Merrill) is reportedly featured in a 75 minute sex tape that TMZ reports is about to be released by Hustler Inc.:

Another “celebrity” sex tape is about to hit the market — and this time, the people distributing the footage claim the star is Danielle Staub from “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Hustler Inc. tells us it is all set to distribute a 75 minute tape, featuring Jersey’s most hated Housewife — and mother of two — in a naked romp with a mystery man. A rep from Hustler tells us the tape was shot last September — several months after 47-year old Staub first appeared on the Bravo reality show. The tape is set to be released on June 14. A rep for Staub had no comment on the story.

Yikes! I cannot think of a thing I’d MOST never, ever want to see in my life. Previews for next week’s ep of The Real Housewives of New Jersey hint of the discussion of Staub‘s sex tape so it sounds like — like it or not — the tape is on the way.

Oh and one last bit of Housewives goodness to share, the reunion episode of The Real Housewives of New York City is set to air on Bravo this Thursday night — after the jump, check out 2 preview videos from that much-anticipated reunion special (oh, you know you want to) … More »
