Real Housewives of New Jersey Star Teresa Giudice in Pittsburgh to Knock Out Cancer

14 Nov

Last night, Teresa Giudice, the reality star known for her spot in the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast, was in Pittsburgh to appear at the Knock Out Cancer event at the Galleria.

Not only did she give Glitzburgh a quick shout-out (see video, below) but she happily posed with fans at a VIP reception before the main event. After the meet-and-greet, she signed cookbooks and posed with photos with other fans who bought a copy of her latest book, Fabulicious.

Tall Cathy from 96.1 KISS interviwed Ms. Giudice on stage, where Teresa said, “Now that I’m in Pittsburgh, I’ll say, I LOVE the Steelers. Go Steelers!” which the crowd loved. She spoke candidly about her feuds with the other women and her brother, and also mentioned that her dad (who is occasionally seen on the show) is in the hospital and is in ill health.

Giudice said that she was still having problems with some of her castmates, but that she is as proud as ever of her talented and adorable daughters, and that her husband “Juicy Joe” is thinking about opening up a winery near where they live in New Jersey. “We want to host wine tastings and stuff,” she said.

This wasn’t her first time in Pittsburgh. She says that in Season 4 you see that they actually had a layover here at the Pittsburgh airport.

Later, she took to Twitter to say she loved meeting her fans from Pittsburgh and she shared some photos of the event. Knock Out Cancer featured vendors and raffles, and proceeds from the night went to support research and awareness of various forms of cancer. SHAG Salon of Robinson was on hand to do fun pink extensions for breast cancer research, local singers performed, a caricature artist did drawings, and more. A lot of fun for a great cause!

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kim Zolciak Comes Out…

28 Mar

Yes, while I read classic literature, I also watch some trash television which I consider “guilty pleasure” TV … and one of these shows just happens to be the “Real Housewives” series.

The Atlanta cast was full of fun, feuds, and fierce feistiness (how’s THAT for some nice alliteration?!?)

One of the most controversial – and one of my favorite – cast members was Kim Zolciak. (Who recently said cheating hubby Jesse James should be “castrated” by wife Sandra Bullock! LoL)

Aspiring recording artist and former model Kim, known for her wigs, lavish lifestyle, and mysterious fiancee, “Big Poppa” always had some sort of drama going on her life. (But, then again, which Real Housewives cast member doesn’t?)

Whether it was her breakdown on the reunion show over losing her hair (was she, or was she not sick?!?) to her knock-down drag out fights with NeNe and Sheree among others, there was always something irritating someone about this blonde bombshell.

Akin to “Speidi” with her ploys for attention, she has now become a tabloid – and a fan – favorite.

However, she’ll now be reaching out to an even more diverse audience: not only did Zolciak pose (topless!) in the famous NOH8 campaign in a show of support for gay marriage rights; but in this week’s issue of Life & Style Magazine, Kim Zolciak came out, announcing that she is, in fact, bisexual. During the recording process of her hit dance single, “Tardy for the Party”, she fell in love with one of the producers…who happened to be a female DJ named Tracy Young.

Kim has a healthy view on her sexuality and believes that “love has no gender” and she won’t let neither a woman nor a man define her. Her relationship with Tracy lasted several months and now her and “Big Poppa” (who has finally been revealed as still-not-legally-divorced businessman Lee Najjar) are back on. While both Poppa and Kim were surprised at how her romantic life during her break from him unfolded, Kim loves Tracy as a person and does not regret the loving and caring relationship that they shared.

Kim calls claims that she had the relationship for “publicity” reasons  “absolutely disgusting” and said it was about the relationship and the companionship.

Zociak isn’t the only famous female who has announced that she is bisexual. Will and Grace actress Megan Mullally came out in The Advocate and thinks that “everyone is innately bisexual.” Famously, Lindsay Lohan, Angelina Jolie, and Anne Heche have been in high-profile relationships with both men and women, and relative newcomers Megan Fox and Lady GaGa have also admitted to being attracted to both men and women.
