Teresa Giudice Says She’s No Longer Physically Attracted to Husband Joe

Teresa Giudice talked about the end of her marriage to estranged husband Joe Giudice during the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion and didn’t pull any punches.

In a preview clip, host Andy Cohen acknowledged that Teresa, 47, told him during the pair’s joint interview last October that she wasn’t attracted to her husband of 20 years anymore and was interested in seeing if the spark was still there when they reunited in Italy the following month.

“Were you attracted to him when you saw him?” Cohen, 51, asked.

“No,” Teresa said as she shook her head.

“Did you have sex with him in Italy?” the Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen host continued.

“No,” Teresa replied as the awkward exchange continued and she shook her head when Cohen asked her if there was a part of her that wanted to sleep with her husband, who she used to call Juicy Joe because she thought he was “so delicious.”

But she admitted that Joe, 47, had wanted to have sex with her for the first time since he’d been imprisoned for 41 months while he served time for fraud. She refused.

“Thank god [our youngest daughter] Audriana slept with me every night,” Teresa said. “She was supposed to stay with one of her sisters but she wanted to stay with me, so it was a good c—kblocker.”

Joe, who is living in Italy while he awaits a verdict in his appeal against his deportation, “was not happy,” Teresa added. “You know, a guy when you say no to him …”

The former construction business owner admitted in an Instagram post last month that it was when he knew his marriage was over and called it his “AHA moment.”

“That was my moment of insight. I felt rejected,” he captioned a clip of the pair’s awkward exchange the night she and their four daughters, Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10, arrived in Italy to see him. “This is the first time while filming a scene, I had severe anxiety and grief. I was [locked] up for four years, any human would have a psychological impact of prison life. This was the moment, I knew deep in my heart she was being difficult with me for a reason. My wife has never said no to sleeping with me. I had to walk away. I don’t have resentment against her (her emotions are justified). it was off guard should have been private.”

Teresa, who announced their split in December, admitted that her feelings for Joe changed because she had a lot of anger towards her husband after her mom, Antonia Gorga, died in March 2017 at the age of 66. Her passing came a little over a year after Teresa was released from prison after serving 11 months for fraud.

“Everything just changed after I lost my mom,” Teresa admitted. “I just became very resentful and that’s I think when it died out.”

Her brother, Joe Gorga, added, “How much stress do you think my mother went under when my sister went away, right? Just think about that. She was sick too. She had arthritis and she would go every week [to visit Teresa in prison].”

“Do you think Joe’s played a part in her [death]?” Cohen asked Gorga, 40.

“A thousand percent,” he replied. “I got a lot to say but I can’t.”

Teresa revealed in an interview with AllAboutTRH earlier this month that she’s told her brother and his wife, Melissa Gorga, to stop “speaking so poorly” about her husband.

“Going into the next season — if they say boo about him — I am going to explode,” the cookbook author warned. “They know not to talk about him anymore. And my kids don’t want to hear it.”

Sarah Jessica Parker Reveals If She’s Team Big or Team Aidan

She’s such a Carrie. Sarah Jessica Parker weighed in on one of Sex and the City‘s biggest questions — Team Big or Team Aidan? — and her answer mirrored her character, Carrie Bradshaw’s feelings throughout the show.

“As you can imagine, this puts me in a terrible position,” Parker, 54, said on the Wednesday, January 22, episode of “The Bradshaw Boys” podcast. “There is a very quick and simple answer: You have to be Team Big or Team John [Corbett].”

She added, “I guess, only because you can’t tell a story that long and not in the most conventional way kind of root for that ending. And I love Chris Noth [Big] so much, and it felt wonderfully and skillfully written by Michael Patrick [King].”

The sex columnist’s on-again, off-again relationship with wealthy businessman John James Preston a.k.a. Mr. Big was chronicled throughout the HBO series. Later, Carrie falls for furniture builder Aidan and the couple get engaged before splitting. In the 2008 Sex and the City film, Big and Carrie finally tie the knot but Aidan returns in the film’s 2010 sequel as a potential romantic threat when he and Carrie share a kiss.

Parker explained that, just like Carrie, she has a soft spot for Aidan despite believing that the character belongs with Big.

“I loved [Corbett’s] Aidan,” she said. “The best of both worlds is in fact having your cake and eating it too. So I feel like I got both teams. Ultimately, Carrie should have ended up with Big, but it was a delight to mess around before she arrived at that.”

Although the Divorce alum portrayed Carrie, who was constantly bouncing between love interests, Parker’s sights have been set on just one man — her husband, Matthew Broderick, since they first met in 1991. The couple married six years later at a Lower East Side synagogue in May 1997. They are the parents of 17-year-old son James, and 10-year-old twins, Marion and Tabitha.

Parker shared her secret for keeping her marriage to Broderick, 57, strong after all these years in an interview with Us Weekly in September 2019.

“We’ve grown,” she explained at the time. “We have a family, we have children, we have friends that have passed away, we have relationships … We don’t talk about it — that’s how it stays strong!”

Madisson Reveals She’s Dating Former Producer

This is … awkward! Brandon Gomes and Madisson Hausburg are officially over when season 3 of Siesta Key premieres — and she’s moved on. In Us Weekly‘s exclusive sneak peek of the Tuesday, January 7, episode, Madisson, 25, meets up with Chloe Trautman to tell her all about her new relationship.

“I’ve been seeing someone,” Madisson says awkwardly. Chloe, 25, looks concerned immediately. “Do I know who it is? You’re freaking me out,” she responds.

After a moment of silence, Madisson drops the news: “I’m dating our producer Ish. Do you remember him from season 1?”

Shocked is an understatement for Chloe’s response, as she worked with Ish — whose real name is Ismael Soto — in the first season of the reality show. First, she asks if he’s going to come out of the bushes somewhere. Madisson reassures her that he’s not there at the moment — but he will be soon.

“He’s your boyfriend? I’m gonna freak the f–k out,” she tells Madisson. “This is nuts.”

With that, Chloe chugs her entire glass of wine before asking the million-dollar question: “How old is he?”

Madisson then casually reveals that the producer — who has worked on Big Brother, Kitchen Nightmares and The Amazing Race — is 46. Chloe then responds, “It’s fine, he could be our dad.”

In a recent interview with Us, Brandon, 24, revealed that while he was surprised by the relationship between Madisson and Ish, he just hopes she’s happy.

“I don’t really know too much exactly about the relationship, but as long as she’s happy, then I’m happy,” he said. “We’re definitely cool. I’m definitely not going to do what I did last time, you know? I don’t really let things sit on my conscious too much and I don’t really have any hate in my heart. So I just let it dissolve how it did and you know, I’m happy she’s happy now.”

Season 3 of Siesta Key premieres on Tuesday, January 7, at 9 p.m. ET.

Rihanna Trolls Fans Over New Album, Hints She’s Ready to Drop It

#WheresTheAlbum? Rihanna continued to troll fans by teasing her highly anticipated ninth studio album, this time dropping a major hint that it might be coming soon.

“Update: me listening to R9 by myself and refusing to release it,” the nine-time Grammy winner, 31, wrote via Instagram on Sunday, December 22, alongside a video of a dog rocking out to House of Pain’s 1992 hit “Jump Around.”

Naturally, Rihanna’s 77.7 million Instagram followers put on their detective caps and began speculating about the release date. Many suggested that the album must finally be finished if the “Work” singer is listening to it, while others came up with plausible theories that it could drop by the end of the year.

One fan pointed out that Rihanna teased in an Instagram comment on December 22, 2018, that the project would be out in “2019.” Then, on Sunday, she posted the trolling dog video exactly one year later.

Another member of the Rihanna Navy reminded fans that the Barbados native similarly teased via Twitter on January 25, 2016, that she was “listening to ANTI,” her eighth album, which dropped three days later.

Even Rihanna’s inner circle is on high alert for R9. Her brother Rorrey Fenty commented on Sunday’s Instagram post, “Drop de ting nuh!” while choreographer Parris Goebel reposted the dog video on her Instagram Stories with the caption, “Me waiting to choreograph for my sis album.”

Multiple sources told Us Weekly exclusively in February that the Fenty Beauty founder had finished recording her ninth record, although one insider explained that “mastering and more behind-the-scenes stuff” were still in the works at the time.

“I like to look at it as a reggae-inspired or reggae-infused album,” Rihanna told Vogue in October. “It’s not gonna be typical of what you know as reggae. But you’re going to feel the elements in all of the tracks. … Reggae always feels right to me. It’s in my blood. It doesn’t matter how far or long removed I am from that culture, or my environment that I grew up in; it never leaves. It’s always the same high. Even though I’ve explored other genres of music, it was time to go back to something that I haven’t really homed in on completely for a body of work.”

Kim Admits She’s ‘So Mean’ to Kourtney During ‘KUWTK’ Finale

The Kardashians are taking on Wyoming … and their issues with each other during the season 17 finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

“I want each one of you to pick one person sitting here and tell them what’s the one thing you’d love to focus on strengthening in your relationship,” Kris Jenner suggests to her family, who are embracing the southern vibes in bandanas and cowboy hats, during a sneak peek of the Sunday, December 15, episode. “What we’re gonna do is build the communication. Khloé, is there somebody on the bus that you’d like to strengthen with?”

Khloé Kardashian is quick to name her sister Kourtney Kardashian.

“I feel like Kourtney and I sometimes fizzle,” the 35-year-old Revenge Body host admits. “So, I think I would love to get us back on course and maybe not be so reactive. For myself.”

After Kendall Jenner acknowledges that everyone in the family is very “judgmental,” Kim Kardashian shifts the conversation back to Kourtney, 40.

“I want to fix, you know, my relationship probably with Kourtney, for those mean reasons and those mean comments. … I mean, I can be so mean,” the KKW Beauty CEO, 39, explains.

Khloé then points out that both Kim and Kourtney go low with each other: “You guys go back and forth though. It’s an equal.”

Kim, Khloé and Kourtney went head-to-head during the Sunday, December 8, episode of the E! series after the Selfish author and the Good American designer accused their eldest sister of hiding parts of their life from the cameras.

“All of the days that Kourtney isn’t filming, Khloé and I are picking up the slack and having to share more,” Kim said during the episode. “Because if we’re not sharing our lives, then what is the show?”

While Kourtney argued that she shared “everything” from her previous relationship with Scott Disick, with whom she shares kids Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4, on the show, Kim and Khloé threatened to fire her from the series.

Fans will see the sisters try to mend their relationship during the season 17 finale, but Kourtney already confirmed she is taking a step back from KUWTK in November.

“I just decided to spend more time as a mom and put more of my energy there,” she told Entertainment Tonight on November 7. “But I’m not saying goodbye. I think you’ll have to see more of it on the new season, season 18. It isn’t airing yet but it’s being filmed.”

Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs on E! Sundays at 9 p.m. ET.

Hannah Brown on How She’s Been ‘Vulnerable’ on Reality TV

Baring it all. Hannah Brown allowed audiences into her world in more ways than one as the Bachelorette, but they have since witnessed her share an entirely new side of vulnerability as a contestant on Dancing With the Stars.

“You’re being judged on something you’ve never done before, and having to learn a dance with a professional in a few days,” Brown, 24, explained to Us Weekly exclusively at the 53rd annual CMA Awards in Nashville on Wednesday, November 13. “It makes me very vulnerable in the sense of, like, how I feel sometimes because, you know, you’re watching a professional do it and I’m never going to be that.”

The former pageant queen continued, “Just knowing that I’m doing my best and that I can see myself continuing to improve has been really incredible. I don’t really know any other way than to be vulnerable or just be myself.”

Brown argued that the level of vulnerability she has showcased on Dancing With the Stars is “different” from what audiences saw from her on The Bachelorette earlier this year. “I think it’s been cool that they have kind of broken that fourth wall and really shown the real story, and the real journey that we all go on when you are a lead or the contestants,” she said of the dating show.

“I mean, it’s all fun and entertainment for everybody at home. But it is our real life,” the Alabama native added. “I feel like your being able to see that a little bit more and I hope they continue to do that.”

Brown’s comments to Us come weeks after the TV personality spoke out about her time on the ABC dance series. In October, she admitted via Instagram that she joined the show “a little broken and confused.” She also noted that “this experience has been harder” than she had anticipated.

“When I decided to do Dancing With the Stars, I thought it would be a fun way to channel all my energy after a whirlwind experience as the Bachelorette,” she wrote. “I was hopeful that the confidence I gained this year to take pride in the woman I have become would have the opportunity to shine, and I’d feel that reboot in my spirit after it took a bit of a beating after my Bachelorette season.”

Brown continued that each day in the competition has “brought its challenges with my past, my fears and the uncomfortableness of opening myself up again to be judged on something VERY scary, like learning a new skill to perform each week.” She then acknowledged that there’s been a “disconnect” about how she’s presented herself on the show.

“I want to be me. I want to be real,” she said. “I feel my best when I feel like I have the opportunity to share my heart with others.”

Brown became a household name and fan-favorite after appearing on Colton Underwood’s season on The Bachelor, which premiered in January. She later let the world in on her journey of growth and love when she led The Bachelorette’s 15th season.

Though she ended the season with a broken engagement, she embarked upon a new challenge when she was cast on Dancing With the Stars’ 28th season in August. She is currently partnered with pro dancer Alan Bersten.

Brett Reminds Casey She’s Single

If Foster sees it, it’s there! Brett (Kara Killmer) has been single ever since she broke off her engagement and moved back to Chicago — and she is making sure Casey (Jesse Spencer) knows it.

During the Wednesday, November 4, episode of Chicago Fire, Brett reveals to Foster (Annie Ilonzeh) that the juvenile case from episode 3 had a happy ending.

“I just got a message from Ryan, the social worker who helped us with the county and detention facility. He says that Isaac is being released early,” Brett tells her partner in Us Weekly’s exclusive sneak peek. “Ryan’s been visiting a lot. Apparently he was a model inmate. I was gonna visit next week but he’s already gone be home.”

Casey, who happens to be in the locker room during the discussion, can’t help but chime in. “Ryan’s the guy you were dating right? He seems really invested, which makes a difference in those situations,” he tells Brett, who immediately feels the need to correct Casey.

“No, I wasn’t dating Ryan. We had a drink once at Molly’s, to talk about Isaac,” she says, which Casey shrugs off. “Either way, it’s nice to know there’s someone the system advocating for kids like that,” he responds and walks away.

She then realizes how strange her reaction was. “Why was I so defensive about Ryan? That’s super weird,” she says to Foster who smiles and adds, “Don’t ask me, partner.”

While nothing has officially happened between Casey and Brett — she was his ex-wife’s best friend after all — the pair have exchanged flirty glances over the past two seasons. However, things may get more complicated when the winter finale airs (on Wednesday, November 20) and Dawson (Monica Raymund) returns.

“They were really great friends and she left and [Brett] had a little bit of abandoned feelings, but I think it’s that whole pick it up as friends do,” cocreator Derek Haas recently told Us Weekly exclusively. “Brett’s nature isn’t one to hold grudges. She’s got a sweet spirit about her and I think she’ll have the same feelings toward Dawson.”

Watch the exclusive sneak peek above.

Chicago Fire airs on NBC Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

At 10 years old, she’s the youngest Bhakti yoga instructor in the U.S.

CHICAGO — As yoga studios pop up all over the country, the certification process for teachers has become more and more stringent. But that didn’t stop 10-year-old Meka Leach.

“I just felt really connected to it; I felt it was my purpose,” Meka said.

At 10 years old, she’s the youngest certified teacher of Bhakti yoga in the U.S.

“She’s the youngest… but it’s not about the age, but about the maturity of the soul,” said Soderworld Yoga instructor  Shakti Divi.

Ask her mom, and she’ll tell you Meka has always been driven to accomplish things well beyond her years. At first it was fencing, and Meka has been winning national competitions since she was eight years old.

In fact, it was the fencing that brought her to a yoga mat.

“My coach started to say that I should do yoga for flexibility because I was getting really stiff,” Meka said.

There she found something bigger than gold medals. Something she calls “centering.” So a month later, she announced she wanted to get certified.

“I was like, ‘no, are you crazy? You don’t have time. You have school. You have fencing,'” her mom Shannon Leach said.

It required 200 hours of training, a commitment that left her friends scratching their heads.

“They don’t understand why I’d rather get certified in yoga than play with them,” Meka said.

Not only did Meka complete the Bhakti certification, but also found a second love in the calming instruments.

“If you’re playing the gong it feels very intense versus the singing bowls, which is very calm,” Meka said.

The student is now a teacher to a room full of adults. And some of her friends are signing up for her  “Mindfulness with Meka” classes too.

“She’s very soulful, and as you can see the sound healing, the gongs and the bowls and the didgeridoo,” said student Mike Rodgers.

Meka also went on to win gold in the nationals for fencing this summer, and she credits what she learned from those 200 hours on the mat.

“She was so calm and so centered and so confident,” Shannon Leach said. “This is just her calling.”

Meka is already making plans to start her 500-hour yoga certification.

Anita Hill says she’s ‘ready to hold Joe Biden accountable’ for role in 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearings

“Have I forgiven Joe Biden? I’m ready to move on, but I am also ready to hold Joe Biden accountable. Accountability means acknowledging your role in a problem and the harm it’s caused. Acknowledging that you have culpability,” Hill told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at the CITIZEN by CNN conference in New York on Thursday.

Hill continued: “Giving me clear information that you have made a change and that you are going to do something to make us all better off around gender discrimination.”

Biden oversaw Thomas’ confirmation hearings, during which Hill testified that Thomas had sexually harassed her. In April, Biden told ABC he believed Hill did not get a fair hearing and was not treated well, and said he took responsibility.

In his bid for president and through the lens of the #MeToo movement, Biden is under renewed scrutiny for the controversial episode from his lengthy Senate career.

The Biden campaign declined to comment on Hill’s Thursday statement.

Earlier this year, Biden had a conversation with Hill in which he shared “his regret for what she endured” during the 1991 hearings, according to his campaign. Hill, in an interview with The New York Times, declined to call the conversation an apology and said she thinks Biden fails to grasp the damage he did to her and other victims of sexual harassment.

Hill also addressed the allegation of sexual and physical assault against now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and said officials “didn’t go far enough” in handling the matter.

Hill said the “structure was hostile” when professor Christine Blasey Ford appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee to testify about her allegation of sexual assault against Kavanaugh.

“Even though the tone of the questions, in some sense, might have been different, the structure was hostile,” Hill said, drawing comparisons to when she herself appeared before the same committee in 1991.

Hill said there was a limit to the number of witnesses called on by investigators, and said there were “limits to what they would do to really find out if in fact this nominee was the best person to sit on the US Supreme Court, in a lifetime appointment.”

Hill said she was disappointed by the outcome of the Kavanaugh hearings, but said she sees it as an opportunity “for us to realize now how much work there is to be done.” She called gender-based violence an urgent “public health crisis” and a “public safety crisis.”

Hill called on the media to ask presidential candidates how they will respond to and address the #MeToo movement, and said she is not satisfied with “the way the media has treated this issue.”
