Crazy Press Week

Wow, it's been a pretty crazy couple of weeks with me and the press. I did a "public service announcement" for Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity" in D.C. (I'm still trying to find a video clip of it for you guys.) I was featured on "South Park," "Saturday Night Live," and Kathy Griffin's latest comedy special. I was on another magazine cover, and written about in I think every major tabloid and blog out there. As for their reports, apparently I am a jealous, party crashing, punch-throwing, family-hating animal. At least when I'm not clipping coupons while crying over how Caroline now hates me and my husband is cheating on me. I wonder when I have time to be so afraid of jail or Bravo firing me? Hmmm...

Happily, I can tell you directly, none of the gossip is true. Joe and I just celebrated our 11th anniversary. I love him as much now as the day I married him. I love my brother and I would never say anything bad about him. He's my baby brother, he's blood, and I don't talk trash about my family even if some of their friends & family members want to "leak" nasty stories about me. I love Caroline, and I'm pretty sure she still loves me. At least that's how it seems when I see her & Jacqueline & Dina just about every single day.

I'm not jealous of anyone. I am so blessed to have a great life, a great family, and my health (and I think I look pretty good for having 4 kids). I just turned in my second book "Fabulicious" to the publisher. My first "Skinny Italian" just went into its 4th printing. And I think you can tell from all the photos online that Bravo didn't fire me. 

Since we are filming, we can't talk about any of the specifics, but I did Tweet, and I stand by it: "Life & Style" is garbage, and RadarOnline is the the flies who eat poop off of garbage. You'll all see the truth in Season 3. I'm sure it will be a great season, but don't believe everything you read about me. At least the bad stuff. All the good stuff is true! 

PS-- Like my new promotional shot? It's going to be on the cover of The Learning Annex magazine because I'm teaching a class there next month. I'll post more details closer to the date. If you live near NYC, you should come! xx
