I will fully admit to being obsessed with The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Those ladies really made the most of their brief stint on Bravo and I anxiously await their return. Sometimes lost in all the table-flipping drama were crazy Danielle's two daughters. The first time I saw the older one, Christine, I thought she was one of the most gorgeous girls I'd seen in a long time. And apparently so does IMG as they've just signed her. She told FWD, "I've never really done any modeling before, so I'm just learning while I have a chance and being guided by the best in the business. I'm also getting used to industry people looking at my face so closely!" We're slightly concerned about the crazy "mom-ager" situation that is sure to come out of this deal. Visions of Dina Lohan are dancing through our heads.
New Jersey Fashion Week Is A Thing That Happened and Real Housewives of New Jersey Were There
And you thought fashion month was over. Not true! New Jersey's inaugural fashion week (ahem, NJFW) kicked off this week to showcase emerging designers from the Garden State. “I want people to understand that New Jersey Fashion Week is the next great destination to showcase global emerging talent,” Donnella Tilery, the co-founder of NJFW told MSNBC.

The Manzo sisters, Caroline and Dina, from the Real Housewives of New Jersey were front row and opened up about Jersey style stereotypes. "We dare to be ourselves — whatever makes us happy," big sis Caroline, always reasonable, told Tonic. “I definitely feel the stereotypes," Dina told MSNBC, "But tonight we’ll see the more elegant side of New Jersey.” Hmm..."Elegant" isn't exactly the word I'd use to describe the near-crotch-revealing numbers that came down the runway at New Jersey Fashion Week. There were also some fun chiffon guys with big bracelet-like rings attached to the trains so you could loop the bracelets over your wrists and make like a bird. But judge for yourself. Or judge from the reactions of the front row which vary from open-mouthed shock (of horror? delight?) to a guy on his cell phone. Here is what NJFW looked like:
