On the shoulders of . . . dogs Author and inspirational speaker Sarah Palin is giving PETA all it wants of her . She Facebooked and Instagrammed photos of son Trig , 6, standing on the back of their dog Jill Hadassa , wanting to help wash dishes. PETA hated it and called her out. She's woofing back, calling PETA hypocrites, using the Hawaiian term okole (meaning "butt"), and telling PETA to "chill" and "shake it off," a clever cultural reference to Taylor Swift 's big hit. Teresa checks in early Very early (3 a.m.)

ORANGE never was a good color for the "Real Housewives" Teresa Giudice . But that may be her new color, as she has gone to the big house. And that's not a McMansion.

Things just got real for the Real Housewives. As you may have heard, Joe Giudice and his wife, Teresa, who is one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey on Bravo, are going to jail for bankruptcy fraud. I'm going to miss Teresa, whose lack of anger management was a thing of beauty. She famously turned over a table in anger, and I don't know a single woman in the world who hasn't dreamed of doing that, or at least being the kind of woman who would do that, on impulse. By the way, when she flipped the table, she yelled "prostitution whore," which is a great thing to yell at any time.

Joe and Teresa Giudice , reality-TV stars of Real Housewives of New Jersey , are in for reality, all right. In federal court Thursday in Newark, N.J., Joe was sentenced to 41 months in prison for wire and bankruptcy fraud. Teresa got 15 months. She will serve her term first, and then Joe will serve, so there'll always be a parent to care for their children, Gia , 13; Gabriella , 9; Milania , 8; and Audriana , 5. Joe, an Italian national who never became a U.S. citizen, may also be deported, but Judge Esther Salas reserved that decision for later.

"REAL Housewives of New Jersey" star Teresa Giudice and her husband, Giuseppe "Joe" Giudice , face prison time after they pleaded guilty yesterday to federal fraud charges for concealing income and lying during bankruptcy proceedings. In contrast to their screechy TV-show personas, Teresa and Joe stood as solemnly as pallbearers as they barely broke a whisper in front of U.S. Magistrate Esther Salas in Newark.
