Season 3 of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey had a 90-minute premiere Monday night, and it did not disappoint. The show featured a brawl between Teresa's Guidice's husband, Joe, and her brother -- also named Joe. Apparently two Joe's do make a fight.
This season has two new housewives -- Teresa's sister-in-law (wife of Teresa's brother, Joe), Melissa Gorga, and Teresa's cousin, Kathy Wakile. Teresa, who has seen her own drama in the press between bankruptcy and her husband's DUIs, apparently gets along with neither. She told Popeater she did not know that her sister-in-law and cousin would be on the show until Bravo told her.
Melissa and Kathy replace dramatic Danielle Staub, who has told multiple outlets that the show would be boring without her. Apparently not.
Reportedly, the 48-year-old Staub just signed a three-year deal to strip for Scores Gentleman's Club in New York City. Staub has been arrested several times, including for kidnapping. And, she's dating someone new ... who it is might surprise you.
Rumor has it that Staub is dating rapper Ray J! He is 18 years her junior. MediaTakeOut.com reported the news. We caught up with the rapper Sunday night at DeLeon Tequila's two-year anniversary party at Chateau Marmont.
Ray J has been linked to Whitney Houston and Kim Kardashian. Staub and Ray J have one thing in common: both had sex tapes that were released to the public (Ray J's was with Kim and featured him urinating on her).
