THERE MAY BE SOMETHING unseemly about somebody trying to make money for something that may have more to do with genetics than anything else, but I'm not going to knock a "Housewife" on a hustle. Besides, having a side gig - whether it's selling jewelry, wigs or whatever - is part of what makes acting the fool on Bravo's over-the-top "Real Housewives" series worth the sky-high heels and risk of breaking a nail in a catfight. "Real Housewives of Atlanta" co-star Phaedra Parks last week released a new exercise video called "Phine Body," which purports to teach women how to get a backside like her trademark donkey booty.

A LOCAL COMPANY is quietly casting Main Line women for a pilot to pitch to Bravo as "The Real Housewives of the Main Line. " Bravo typically chooses the cities, including New York, Atlanta and Miami, featured on the popular reality series and then hires producers and gets involved with casting. "Bravo is not involved with this project," Cameron Blanchard, a Bravo spokeswoman, said last night. "I wouldn't speculate that," she added, when asked if the station would consider such a pilot if it were pitched.

MOVE OVER, Teresa Giudice. The rest of the "Real Housewives of New Jersey" might as well use their sky-high stilettos to take a giant step back, too. Philadelphia could be on the verge of getting a "Housewives" show of its own. In recent weeks, a producer associated with the Bravo TV show has been in Philly interviewing some of the city's most successful and glamorous women. But wannabe "Housewives" need to hang on to their Hermes handbags for now. Whatever is in the works is only in its very early stages.

"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. Both pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud and three types of bankruptcy fraud.

On a recent episode of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey , Teresa Giudice gave birth to her fourth daughter, who, in keeping with the family penchant for excess, exited the womb to wear designer togs. Sitting on my sectional, I gasped at the feathered leopard-print baby hat that matched the luxe loungewear and bedding the "real" housewife bought to make her hospital scenes more glam. A month after the blessed event, Giudice and her husband, Joe, quietly filed in North Jersey for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection.

LISA WU HARTWELL should have snatched the wig off someone's head or gone ahead and made good on that threat to flip a cast mate over a sofa. It would have been great for ratings. Then, maybe - just maybe - Hartwell would still be co-starring on the reality TV show "The Real Housewives of Atlanta. " Although she was on the show last night, Hartwell's no longer part of the cast. And Bravo's not saying why Hartwell is no longer an official housewife. Too bad, since she was the only seemingly normal woman on the show.

They should stock extra-absorbent tissues at the concessions stand for The Blind Side , an engaging if transparent tearjerker of the first water. Adapted from Michael Lewis' 2006 nonfiction book, it tells the story of Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy (Sandra Bullock and country music star Tim McGraw), an affluent white couple in Memphis who take Michael Oher (Quinton Aaron), a destitute black teenager, into their home and family. A refugee from the foster care system, Oher is a withdrawn, mumbly young man carrying a sadness so deep it can't fit even his immense body.

PHILLY-BASED "Mob Wives" star Alicia DiMichele will be sentenced in Brooklyn Federal Court today for embezzling funds from Big R Trucking, the company she once co-owned with hubs Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr ., who was recently sentenced to seven years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder and witness tampering. According to court docs, DiMichele faces a $96,000 fine, $20,000 in restitution payments and up to six months in prison. Although the $20,000 fine was agreed upon beforehand, DiMichele's attorney, John S. Wallenstein , called the restitution "both inappropriate and vastly excessive," writing that prosecutors came up with the figure because of DiMichele's participation on the VH1 reality show.

Scandal is the intriguing new drama from Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. It's built around one of the strongest (in every sense) female characters to hit prime time in recent memory. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) is a former Oval Office insider who has formed a thriving, teeming crisis-management firm in Washington, D.C. With her frighteningly fast-talking staff (Henry Ian Cusick of Lost, Columbus Short, Darby Stanchfield, Katie Lowes, and Guillermo Diaz), she represents clients - a Russian diplomat, a Georgetown madame, a decorated military hero - caught in compromising positions.

It looks as if reality-show producers are doubling down on Philly. My colleague Jenice Armstrong recently reported that "Real Housewives of Atlanta" producer Princess Anne Banton-Lofters has been checking out Philly's prominent women for a possible "Real Housewives of Philadelphia" spin-off. But I hear she's not the only reality producer sniffing around socialites. Reality-based production company Wilshire Studios, a division of NBCUniversal, which owns channels like E!

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.

In 2014, you know you've made it when Charlie Sheen tweets about you. Temporary Tattle therefore gives you: Shady McTipper, part deux. As Daily News gossip columnist Molly Eichel reported, lo, those many days ago - Tuesday - it seems that Eagles running back LeSean McCoy took buddies out for burgers at Northern Liberties' PYT Monday afternoon. They racked up a $61.56 bill, and McCoy himself apparently left server Rob Knelly a very lousy tip. Twenty cents lousy.

I'D LIKE TO make a confession. I watch Bravo's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta. " I know. Don't judge me until you hear why. I'm intrigued by many of the "Housewives" shows. I used to watch the ones about the women in Orange County and New York. But these days it's just the Atlanta version. In my defense, there are lessons to be learned from the materialistic musings of these women. In particular, I was disturbed about a recent story line involving Kandi Burruss, a singer and businesswoman who technically wasn't even a housewife.

* THE NEIGHBORS. 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, 6 ABC.   TOKS Olagundoye studied for years to play an extraterrestrial living in New Jersey. She just didn't know it. One of the stars of ABC's "The Neighbors," Olagundoye - whose first name rhymes with "jokes" and is short for Olatokunbo - was educated in her native Nigeria, in England and in the United States. She also was schooled by Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey. " "I watched three seasons of it, fully enjoyed it, then I didn't enjoy it. I stopped," she said of the "reality" show that "The Neighbors" satirized earlier this season, as Olagundoye's character tried to fit in with a group of human females by adopting a "Housewives" persona.
