Sign in. See the list. When Danielle decides to do a story on the life of a sex worker to please her boss and lover Peter, she meets Gage a professional gigolo. She quickly becomes interested in his work and starts to see a change in herself and her life. The background: A strippers' convention and a major contest.
The filming of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" went crazy this week when Bravo ambushed one of the cast members by arranging for the owner of a strip club where she used to work to show up on camera. Melissa [Gorga] was nervous that ex-Housewife Danielle Staub was going to show up, but it turned out the surprise guest would be much more damaging. No one knew him, no one knew he was coming -- although, of course Bravo had a microphone on him -- and Melissa ran away from him and refused to film with him," a witness at the taping tells me. But a Bravo spokesperson strictly denies that producers had any involvement with orchestrating the encounter: "Bravo was not involved in any set up.
Robin, the stripper from Karl's gentlemen's club, is now living with Susan and Mike, and she's managed to shake things up in a major way on Wisteria Lane. In an episode devoted to Robin and the different ways she's affected all the women on the street, we see once again that most of the "Desperate Housewives" are pretty horrible people, and you're glad you don't live on their cul-de-sac. But it's a difficult thing to take five -- six if you count Karen McCluskey -- different women, bring them into contact with another, and somehow advance their plotlines or draw out their character. Instead the writers simply ended up cranking out the same old cliches -- Susan is jealous of Mike's interactions with women!
The drama — real or imagined — never ends for those Jersey housewives. The source of the story? None other than Gorga's Housewives co-star Teresa Giudice. According to Us Weekly , Gorga's former employer Larry Guarino confirms Gorga did, in fact, work at the club — but as a bartender, not a stripper. Tags: Breaking News , Celebs.
