The moment Joe Giudice knew it was over with Teresa

Joe Giudice has revealed the exact moment he knew that his marriage was over.

On Saturday, Joe posted a clip from the upcoming season finale of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" that shows Teresa Giudice refusing to let him sleep in the same bed as her, as they've been apart for four years while he served prison time.

"My 'AHA moment!'" he captioned a video, along with a montage of photos of himself and Teresa from their 20-year marriage. "That was my moment of insight. I felt rejected. 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."

Joe and Teresa separated in late 2019 after she visited him in Italy along with their daughters, Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11. It was the first time in four years that they were able to see him as a free man, as all other visits took place in prison.

During the sneak peek, Joe and Teresa speak about their sleeping arrangements in Italy.

"Well, I mean, were you expecting to sleep with me?" she asks.

"I mean, we got 20 years in our marriage," he replies.

"We haven't been together in almost four years, so it's kinda weird, right?" Teresa says. "I don't know, I mean, it's been a long time, you know? You need to, like, slow it down."

Joe is seen putting on his coat and leaving, saying, "Listen, by the end of this trip, things could change. Who the hell knows?"

Instagram

In his Instagram post, he gave more context to the conversation.

"This was the moment, I knew deep in my heart she was being difficult with me for a reason," Joe said of the clip. "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. I realized I must be responsible for only my kids that's what matters. I want to provide, encourage, embrace them with my love in limited time together."

Nasty split

Dr. Dre's ex files lawsuit over his most valuable trademarks

Dr. Dre's estranged wife has filed a lawsuit against the hip hop legend, claiming she co-owns the trademarks to some of his most valuable assets, including his stage name.

In the lawsuit, obtained by Page Six, Nicole Young claimed that not only does she co-own the name "Dr. Dre" and "The Chronic," the rapper's transformative album, but she alleges that the hip hop mogul is hiding assets so that she can't get to them.

Nicole claims she "caught [Dre] secretly transferring valuable trademarks he owned with his wife … to a newly created asset holding company that he created and controlled after he expelled his wife from their home, and before he threatened to file divorce."

"Two days after the threat, Nicole had no choice and initiated divorce proceedings," she continues. "Andre's transparent and reprehensible scheme to transfer these assets away, without Nicole's knowledge or consent, so he could retain more for himself in a divorce from his wife of 24 years, and the mother of his three children, is an epic failure and reveals the true nature of his character, or lack thereof."

In late June, Nicole filed for divorce from Dre, ending their 26-year relationship. The split has been contentious, as she's claimed she was forced to sign a prenuptial agreement (she also claimed Dre ripped up the paperwork a few years later, something he denies).

Nicole argues that because she was with Dre, real name Andre Young, as he gained fame and notoriety, everything should be shared. 

"After Andre forced Nicole out of their family home on or about April 2, 2020, he quickly plotted to secretly transfer their assets, to deny Nicole her equal share," she claims in her new lawsuit. "These valuable Trademarks were filed during Andre's years married to Nicole, which coincided with Andre's years of rising success in the music industry. The Trademarks are presumed to be community property pursuant to California Family Code Section 760. Because they were married, Nicole and Andre owned the Trademarks jointly, from the date of their first filing in 1997, and through 2013, by virtue of being community property owners."

"Andre now purports to own the Trademarks in full," she added.

Sources close to Dre told TMZ that the lawsuit is "ridiculous" and done simply to embarrass him.

"They were married in 1996. Chronic came out in '92 and Dr. Dre used his name since the 80's, so it's all his and his alone," a source said. Another added, "It's the act of a desperate woman who finally realized that the iron-clad prenup she signed doesn't win her the lottery."

Nicole is asking the trademarks be put in a trust, and she's also suing for damages and legal fees.

ageless wonder

Salma Hayek, 54, recreates bikini photo shoot from 1999

Salma Hayek has still got it, and she has the receipts to prove it!

On Sept. 17, the actress took to Instagram to post a photo from a 1999 ad campaign that showed her donning a brown bikini.

"This photo is from a European bathing suit campaign I did for H&M in 1999," she wrote alongside the series of snaps. 

After posting the images, Salma was flooded with compliments. One person even commented that she could pose for the same ad campaign today. Perhaps she took note of that statement, because she essentially recreated the photo shoot on Sept. 18.

"2020: More than 20 years after my last post," she wrote alongside two images that show her relaxing on a diving board in a brown one-piece swimsuit. "Ready for the weekend! Have a great #Friday!"

The posts come a few weeks after Salma's 54th birthday celebration in Greece. Throughout the vacation, the "Frida" star shared several sun-soaked and enviable images. 

"I am very grateful and proud for every single one of my 54 years," she captioned a birthday photo in which she donned a summery yellow dress with side cutouts. 

On Aug. 31, she also took to Instagram to post images and videos from dinner – a dinner that got rowdy in the best way

The first image showed her sitting at the dinner table with an empty plate in front of her and a gold-plated olive branch pinned in her hair. A subsequent video, though, showed her slamming two plates onto the ground while others cheered — all of which was done in the name of Greek tradition.

"I started the night looking #fresh, patiently waiting for my dinner," she wrote. "Six hours later I was breaking plates like it's customary in #Greece."

Candace Cameron Bure discusses 'spicy' Instagram post

Candace Cameron Bure isn't about to apologize for posting an Instagram picture last week that some of her followers found controversial. In fact, she loves that the picture — which she dubbed "spicy" — stirred the pot.

On Sept. 11, the "Fuller House" star posted similar images with Valeri Bure, her husband of 24 years. One image showed Val sweetly kissing his wife as they stood on a bridge. In the second photo, taken on the same bridge, Val's hand cupped one of Candace's breasts as she grinned.

"Sweet and spicy," the actress captioned the dueling photos. "24 years and counting."

Some of Candace's fanbase, which she acknowledges is rather Christian, was critical of the image, dubbing it "inappropriate," among other things (one person even said "the devil loves it").

"I love the fact that so many people had an opinion on it. It made me laugh because I wasn't trying to make a statement," she told Fox News of the backlash. "This is just how my husband and I are. You know, we adore each other and we still have fun and we're spicy together."

She added, "We have a playful, loving marriage and I think that's why we're still married 24 years later. But I did respond because I always get bummed out when people have been married for so long and then I feel like the joke is always like, 'oh, we're married – so that means we don't have sex anymore.' And it's kind of like that a lot. And so I thought it was just a cute, funny picture and it was playful and it's very much reflective of our personalities in real life."

Several of Candace's celebrity followers found humor in the social media photo.

"Love you guys and congrats on second base!!!," Candace's "Fuller House" costar Bob Saget joked.

Holly Robinson Peete wrote,"Wait/—- people are actually offended?????"

Candace thinks the judgers might want to look inside their own house if they're actually offended.

"I'm like, hey, guys, if you're complaining about the picture, maybe you might hope that your marriage is actually a little spicier than it is," she said. "But this is part of our healthy marriage. And I just wanted to say it because I had no shame in posting that picture. You know, nothing was exposed, I didn't think it was immodest. It was just two people having fun and we've been married for 24 years, but together for 26 years. So I just am like, hey, the playfulness doesn't stop just because you're married."

In a separate interview with Daily Mail, Candace had an even more direct message to those who think she and her husband were somehow immoral.

"For all of the Christians that are questioning my post with my husband's hand on my boob — my husband of 24 years — thinking it was inappropriate, it makes me laugh because it's my husband," she said. "He can touch me any time he wants, and I hope he does. This is what a healthy, good marriage and relationship is all about… I'm sorry if it offended you — I'm actually not sorry. I'm glad we have fun together after so many years. He can touch me all day long."

Still engaged??

Fans are questioning if Taraji P. Henson is still engaged

Is Taraji P. Henson still an engaged woman? That's what fans are starting to wonder.

AFFI/Shutterstock

The "Empire" star got engaged to former NFL player Kelvin Hayden in 2018, three years after the duo started dating. In early 2020, they appeared to be the epitome of happiness and were months away from getting hitched. However, he has not been seen on Taraji's Instagram in months.

Adding fuel to the breakup rumors, Taraji celebrated her 50th birthday last week in Mexico, and Kelvin didn't appear to attend the festivities. He also failed to mention her big day on his social media.

"Bliss," Taraji captioned a photo from her birthday celebrations. Noticeably, she does not appear to be wearing her engagement ring, instead donning other statement rings.

Taraji hasn't appeared on Kelvin's Instagram since Valentine's Day. Kelvin, meanwhile, last appeared on her Instagram in March. The last time she flashed her engagement ring was in April.

To be fair, the duo has been somewhat private about their romance — they quietly dated for two years before going public with their relationship. In 2019, Taraji revealed that they actually split at one point, and Kelvin had to claw his way back into her life.

Coincidentally, Taraji and Kelvin should be married by now. The two were set to tie the knot this summer, but the coronavirus pandemic forced them to postpone their nuptials.

"Our grandparents, my grandmother is about to turn 96, his is 86, how do we get them to the wedding now? Now, we are concerned, just trying to figure out the safest and best way," she told "Access Hollywood" in March.

Insta fury

Lisa Rinna blasted over 'move on' comment on Instagram

9021- oh, the drama!

Lisa Rinna is feeling the heat from Instagram after telling her followers to "move on," which many felt was a reference to her ongoing feud with Denise Richards

After the reality TV show's reunion was aired, Lisa took to Instagram. "The future looks bright. Better not Bitter. Love you all!," she wrote. "Thank you for watching and let's for gods sakes Move on!!!"

Fans immediately pounced, claiming she was the reason for the never-ending storyline involving allegations that Denise Richards had an affair with former "Housewives" star Brandi Glanville, all of which Denise has denied.

"'Move on'…?," one person commented. "Hunny weren't you were the one bullying Denise all season? Lol. But ok."

Another said, "Now you want to move on after you dragged Denise??? You couldn't let it go for an entire season!! You should send her flowers for giving you a storyline."

"You say 'move on' but you're still being petty and dragging it out in your stories right now," yet another said. 

A cavalry of similar comments lit up the comments section of Lisa's Instagram post.

Broadimage/REX/Shutterstock

On Sept. 17, Lisa posted modeling photos of her daughter Amelia Gray. Some of her fans saw it as nothing more than an attempt at a distraction. 

Last week, a slew of "Housewives" fans even called for Lisa to be fired from the Bravo show, and many argued that she's to blame for Denise's decision to leave.

"Gutted @DENISE_RICHARDS is leaving #RHOBH – blame it on @lisarinna," one person tweeted, leading to a chorus of others who agreed.

Perhaps as a nod to the backlash, on Sept. 17 Lisa posted a quote to her Instagram Story that read: "Let your past make you better, not bitter."

Fake news

Cardi B's team responds to Offset affair rumors amid divorce

Cardi B's team is snapping back at rumors that the rapper filed for divorce from Offset because he had an extramarital affair and got another woman pregnant.

"There is no other child. No baby is on the way. That rumor is super false," a source told Page Six on Sept. 17. "Cardi is thinking of her child and wants everything to be amicable. She's evolved over the years and continues to."

On Sept. 15, the "WAP" rapper filed for divorce from there Migos rapper after nearly three years of marriage.

Initial reports implied that the split was contentious, but on Sept. 16, Cardi amended her filing to indicate she wants a peaceful split, especially for the sake of their 2-year-old daughter, Kulture. 

"She went back to have the petition amended because she wasn't aware that it read 'primary custody.' She wants them both to have custody and to co-parent," the source said. "She's not requesting spousal support or child support. She wants everything to be super amicable."

The divorce filing came just days after Cardi shared a cryptic message on her Instagram Story that stated, "Her heart finally told her to stop wasting her time." She added, "It's time." The filing also came just days shy of what would have been the couple's third anniversary.

The couple's relationship has been unconventional. Offset proposed on stage during a concert after he and Cardi were already secretly married. Soon after, Offset was hit with cheating allegations and the duo briefly split in 2018. Then, in December 2018, he surprised Cardi on stage at the Rolling Loud Festival, essentially crashing her performance with flowers in hand and begging for her forgiveness with a cake that read "TAKE ME BACK CARDI." 

They would eventually reconcile.

In the divorce paperwork, Cardi revealed that the two are now separated and firmly states that there is no chance of a reconciliation. Offset has yet to respond to Cardi's divorce filing.

The baby announcement comes less than two weeks after the couple celebrated their sixth wedding anniversary.

"Wow I can't believe we've been married 6 years?!! Time flies," Ashley captioned a series of wedding photos on Sept. 8. "I remember having so much fear the minute we got together because I couldnt believe how good you treated me. I had never been treated that way. But I let go and trusted my heart and 8 months later we were a couple of crazy kids engaged. 

"Chris you truly have made me a better version of myself because you keep inspiring me everyday. Your heart is pure, you would do anything to make me happy, through the ups and downs you are my solid rock," she continued. "I'm so grateful I get to be your wife. I love you and after all this time I'm still into you."
