Kenya Moore isn’t too lucky in love. This week, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star posted a statement on Instagram to her 423,000 followers that her dream man (whom she met thanks to Patti Stanger’s Millionaire Matchmaker) went and got married a week after the show aired. The guy, James Freeman, isn’t talking, but his new spouse, Jaimi Gregory, told Radar Online, that they met on Match.com in December 2014, three months after he appeared on the episode. The newlyweds are accusing Moore of lying about the relationship for publicity. Gregory said that after Freeman told Moore he didn’t want to see her anymore, the Bravo personality told him the rejection would “hurt her brand.”

Seeing the sharks take the bait on ABC’s hit show Shark Tank doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to finish the meal. The chief of SynDaver Labs, a growing Tampa firm that makes“synthetic humans” for trauma and surgical training, among other uses, appeared to win a commitment for $3 million from one of the show’s investors, tech mogul Robert Herjavec, in Friday’s episode. But SynDaver’s chief, Christopher Sakezles, told the Tampa Bay Times he was told by a Shark Tank publicist late Tuesday that no investment would be forthcoming with noexplanation.

TRADING UP

Kate Gosselin has upped her game. The divorcee is still hot and heavy with multi-millionaire Jeff Prescott, UsWeekly reports. The reality stalwart, 40, and the divorced businessman, 51, were seen out on a romantic dinner date in Philly Friday night. Kate’s ex, Jon Gosselin, hasn’t held down a full time job since Jon & Kate Plus 8 ended in 2011. Prescott is the co-founder of Dreamstime, a stock photo agency. He has a mere three kids with his ex.

LIVING IT UP

While Teresa Giudice does her time, her wayward husband appears to be living it up on the outside. A fellow patron at a Newark, N.J., seafood restaurant snapped a picture of Joe Giudice chomping away on a double date on April 29. Seated alongside him: Samary Graulau, a staffer at the Garden State’s Breathless Gentleman’s Club, RadarOnline reported, along with the incriminating pics. Teresa isn’t unaware of Joe’s indiscretions, and, according to a fellow inmate, met with a divorce lawyer while she’s locked away at the Federal Correctional Institution in Danbury, Connecticut.
