A new Danielle Staub sex tape may be creating the most online buzz around The Real Housewives of New Jersey, but it's a Danielle Staub tirade that has reportedly led to the exit of a show cast member.

Multiple sources confirm that Dina Manzo will quit the series after next week's episode, a decision that was hyped in a recent Bravo promo that teased one of the Housewives will be "leaving forever."

Danielle and Dina have clashed throughout the season, but Zap2It reports it was the former's behavior at a recent charity benefit that truly opened up Manzo's eyes to the self-absorbed lunatics with whom she was sharing the screen.

Referring to Staub's outburst at the event (read about it HERE), Manzo said: "For her to make a mockery of it was extra upsetting as a cast member. It was really the last straw for me."

Away from the cameras, Dina runs Project Ladybug, an organization for children with life-threatening illnesses.

Manzo says she was "a thousand percent" against Bravo filming the aforementioned charity gala. The reason?

"I take this very, very seriously. I am so exhausted at the end of the day and I don't make a penny for Ladybug."

Of course, Bravo would only make the following statement in regard to this rumor: "While there is a lot of speculation about who, if anyone, is leaving the cast - viewers will have to tune in on Monday night to find out the truth."

Okay, fine. We'll do so. But only to give Dina a standing ovation when she walks away from the spoiled nuts jobs that surround her.

We know she lives in denial, but this one is an all-timer.

Lindsay Lohan's excuse, as relayed by her mother Dina, for her SCRAM ankle monitor shockingly going off Sunday at an MTV Movie Awards after-party?

"Somebody spilled a drink on her leg, which must have set off the SCRAM bracelet," Dina told the N.Y. Post. Right. 'Cause that's totally how it works.

The device measures perspiration in the skin, not alcohol specifically. Even if someone did spill a drink on her leg, how would it distinguish the liquid?

Hilarious. Dina adds: "She has done absolutely nothing wrong and shouldn't have to wear the bracelet in the first place. She is doing absolutely fine."

Okay, Dina. NOTE: A judge ordered her to wear it after she failed to appear in court for probation hearings stemming from her two DUI convictions.

Shopping Maniac

Amazingly, this is up there with her best/worst excuses we've heard in recent memory, but this is Lindsay Lohan. It's got legitimate competition for the #1 spot.

Here's a look at some other tall tales she's told (via E! Online):

1. The black guy did it: In the 2007 incident she's still in hot water for, Linds tried to pin her drunk Pacific Coast Highway joyride on her assistant's pal Dante.

2. Pants on fire: After she claimed "the black kid" was driving that night, cops found cocaine on her. Oh, she borrowed those jeans from a friend! That bitch!

3. Fearing for her life: Lindsay has blamed her reckless (substance-abusing) driving on the fact that cameras follow her every move. She was scared, okay??!

4. Dog ate my passport: Despite a looming court date, Lohan still went yacht hopping in France, missed her flight back, then said someone stole her passport.

5. It was a set up: While in Cannes, a photo surfaced of LiLo and a plate of cocaine. What?! No, those were just fans staging the cocaine pic to sabotage her.

Mmm hmm. At this point, Pinocchio couldn't front on this lunatic.

We have bad news and good news, THG readers. First, the bad:

This season of The Real Housewives of New York City is over. But, now, the good: our reality show correspondent sucked it up and watched Bethenny Frankel's spin-off show last night instead! She's filed the following report on Bethenny Getting Married?

Watching this show is a totally different experience than watching another one of the Real Housewives shows.  The major differences?:  This new spin-off focuses on one likable person and there’s relatively little drama.  My familiar stomach knot of extreme Housewives anxiety never reared its ugly head while watching Bethenny Frankel on her own.  I think I like that... but I’m not sure yet.

I’ll admit that I tune into both The Real Housewives of New York City and The Real Housewives of New Jersey to see all the catfights and shit-storms that crop up each week.  I imagine those of you who also watch these shows choose to come back each week for a similar reason.  Will a show about a Housewife be compelling without the normally high level of kookiness we associate with them?

The Housewives Girl

Also, is anyone interested in watching a show that is simultaneously brand-new and also totally outdated?  We all know Bethenny did in fact get married, which makes the question mark in the show’s title seem oddly placed.  We also know she had a baby girl and that, at least so far, Bethenny and Jason are still married.  Do I want to spend my time watching all these “new” episodes when I already know what the conclusion will be?

So far, my answer is yes.  I find Bethenny charming and relatable.  I just like to root for this girl even though she certainly doesn’t need anyone else cheering her on; she’s enough of a success as it is.

She has a nice smile and a great sense of humor.  She drops funny lines left and right and is perfectly self-deprecating.  When Jason objects to having a young straight man work as Bethenny’s new assistant in their home Bethenny says, “What 24-year-old guy wants to hit this?  I’m sure a 24-year-old wants a knocked-up 39-year-old.”  I love it - it’s funny but also true and quite unlike what we see women saying on most reality television shows.

Cheers to Bethenny!

When we were first introduced to her boyfriend (now-fiancée on the show and now-husband in real life) in this season’s Real Housewives of New York City, I will admit that I found him sort of boring.  He didn’t seem to be a match for Bethenny intellectually or socially.  But now I appreciate his demeanor.  He is the calming and kind "yin" to Bethenny’s hyperactive and crass "yang." 

And Bethenny thinks they are totally compatible and truly similar in most of their likes and dislikes.  She says, “Both of us would rather be eating potato skins at a mall.” Ummm... maybe not.  I can’t quite imagine Bethenny eating fatty-fat potato skins at the Chili’s in the mall, can you?

Jason also appears to be able to come up with his own funny lines.  While looking at Bethenny sitting at the kitchen counter in her pajamas eating frosting for breakfast he observes, “I love how your boobs now rest on your belly.  It’s great.  So sexy.”  He also tells her she is beautiful seemingly every 15 minutes.  What girl wouldn’t love this? 

He’s open about his feelings toward his soon-to-be bride when he says, “To be honest, she was engaged three times.  So I guess I should have a little concern.”  I would share your concern, too, Jason, if I didn’t already know that you actually do get married.

Abby Sunderland is okay.

The 16-year old sailor lost a satellite phone call with her parents yesterday morning, an hour before she set of a distress signal and was feared lost in the Indian Ocean.

But a search plane launched from Australia made radio contact with Sunderland almost 24 hours later, as it was discovered her boat was continually knocked down by huge waves, causing its mast to break and a sail to drag in the water.

Said search coordinator Mick Kinley, acting chief of the Australia Maritime Safety Authority:

"The aircraft (crew) spoke to her. They told her help was on the way and she sounds like she's in good health. She's going to hang in there until a vessel can get to her."

Sunderland had been attempting to become the youngest person to navigate the globe solo, though some critics believe she departed for her trip during a dangerous time of the year.

Abby told the rescue crew, via radio, that she was doing fine, using a space heater to keep warm, and possessed at least two weeks' worth of food.

The French regional administration on the island of Reunion said it had sent a trio boats in her direction and should be able to reach her some time tomorrow. Thank goodness.

Earlier this week, Taylor Swift took down good friend Kellie Pickler in an epic Fashion Face-Off.

Over 75% of readers polled thought the country music superstar looked better at the CMT Awards than the former American Idol finalist.

Was that result due to Taylor's new hairstyle? Or in spite of it?

Below, we give fans a chance to compare Swift's two looks. No matter which you prefer, both options look much better than what Katherine Heigl did with her hair at the London premiere of Killers. YIKES!

  • Curls

Which hairstyle looks best on Taylor Swift?

Can't a rumored hermaphrodite just watch a ballgame in peace?

Apparently, Lady Gaga decided to check out the Mets game Thursday in New York, which is cool, since she's from New York, and celebrities go to games a lot.

Lady Gaga on GMA

They usually get good seats, too, and because of that and merely being celebrities, are often photographed. It's just sort of what happens in that situation.

Well, apparently Lady Gaga of all people is not keen on this.

When she showed up in her traditional costume, the "Alejeandro" singer took issue with people photographing her and had to be moved to a luxury suite.

There, she continued to flip off the photographers.

Wait ... Lady Gaga doesn't want her photo taken?

We love the girl, but call us crazy here - when has Lady Gaga ever not clamored for attention? It's part of her act. You can't just turn it on and off at will.

Showing up to a game in full "Telephone" garb is not exactly inconspicuous either. Did she really expect any different as one of the top stars in music?

If there's any silver lining here for Gaga, it's that Kristen Stewart wins for worst paparazzi attack of the year ... even though hers was strictly verbal.

After a court battle that was getting ugly in a hurry, Jesse James agreed to allow his second ex-wife, Janine Lindemulder, a supervised visit with their child.

Tomorrow, Janine will have a long-awaited reunion with Sunny James, daughter of Jesse James and stepdaughter to his now-estranged wife Sandra Bullock.

The motorcycle mogul's attorneys met with Lindemulder and her legal team in court on Thursday to finalize the agreement for her to visit the six-year-old.

James has full custody. Since she got out of prison (really), Lindemulder has sought 50-50 custody again, assailing Jesse in court papers and in the media.

"I'm so pleased I will get to see my daughter," Janine Lindemulder said, adding that they will meet next week to discuss long-term visitation arrangements.

Jesse James extended the olive branch to Janine Lindemulder. For now.

Married to James from 2002-2003, the porn star hasn't seen Sunny face-to-face since her tax evasion conviction and subsequent jail/halfway house stints.

James previously complained that Lindemulder had "no filter" when talking with their young daughter, and noted that she flaked on a Christmas Day call.

He also said in court documents this week that Janine once put Sunny's life at risk by joyriding around under the influence. Yeah. That's never a good sign.

Married to Jesse since 2005, Sandra Bullock helped raise Sunny in the home she and James once shared. Then he ruined everything by cheating on her.

It's sad, as Sunny could use a good maternal influence.

One is a Grammy-winning singer and certifiable douchebag who gets lots of girls and brags about it with absurd comments regarding sexual napalm.

The other is an MTV reality star who talks about himself in the third person, fake tans, also gets a lot of (far less attractive) girls and is proud of it.

  • John Mayer Hair
  • We Gots a Situation

One has chiseled abs because he works at a gym. The other last visited in gym in approximately 1998. One has earrings, the other lots of hair.

If it came down to John Mayer or The Situation, and your life depended on it and/or you were really drunk, who would you rather ... you know?

It's a difficult call, we sympathize with you. But vote below.

Who would you rather ...

Katherine Heigl is hot. This has not changed.

Her recent hairstyle may be almost as bad as her attitude, however. Yeesh. Check out this sky high bouffant she wore to the London premiere of Killers this week.

To be fair, it's not all Katie's fault. The star ditched her signature blonde locks to play the main character in the film adaptation of the novel One for the Money.

It took some getting used to - for her as well.

I was pretty shocked at first... I was like, 'wow, it's dark, that's not just brown, that's black.' It took me a good day and a half to totally embrace it," she said.

Do you embrace it, though? Vote below ...

Authorities have begun a search for Abby Sunderland.

The 16-year old is attempting to sail around the world on her own, but her parents lost contact with her this morning, soon before the teenager set off a distress signal. She's believed to be in the southern part of the Indian Ocean.

"Everything seemed to be under control," father Laurence Sunderland told The Los Angeles Times. "But then our call dropped and a hour later the coast guard called."

A rescue effort, coordinated by the French-controlled Reunion Islands and Australia, is underway. However, Sunderland is likely hundreds of miles away from land and there's concern over how long it would take a boat to reach her.

Said family spokesman Christian Pinkston: "We've got to get a plane out there quick... They are exhausting every resource to try to mobilize an air rescue including discussions with the U.S. State Department, the U.S. Coast Guard and various international rescue organizations."

Meanwhile, Abby's parents have updated their blog with this statement:

Abby has all of the equipment on board to survive a crisis situation like this. She has a dry suit, survival suit, life raft, and ditch bag with emergency supplies. If she can keep warm and hang on, help will be there as soon as possible. Wild Eyes is designed for travel in the Southern Ocean and is equipped with 5 air-tight bulkheads to keep her buoyant in the event of major hull damage. It is built to Category 0 standards and is designed to self-right in the event of capsize.

Thank you for all of your kind emails and calls. We appreciate your prayers and support.

Let's all hope Abby Sunderland is found alive and well.
