Updated: Tom was misquoted by Radar. He nor his source claimed the $850K salary figure for Jacqueline Laurita. And his source shared that all the ladies are reportedly making around $750, excluding the new Housewives.
Today’s Wishful Thinking award goes to Jacqueline Laurita. Who also gets a mention for encouraging us to believe the unbelievable. Nice try!
A report emerged today that claims Jacqueline, who is rumored to be returning to Real Housewives Of New Jersey next season as a full-fledged Housewife, will be earning an $850,000 salary. Which would make her one of the highest paid Housewives in the franchise history – almost as highly paid as the (allegedly) million-dollar earning NeNe Leakes!
This month NeNe nabbed the cover of Pose Magazine, while Cynthia nabbed the cover of Kontrol’s “Fabulous At Every Age,” edition.
“Thank you Pose for choosing me to Grace your cover! Pick up your copy of Pose Magazine and read my amazing interview speaking on motherhood, being a wifey, friendship, my clothing line, my production company, my Glam’baby, RHOA and my future!” NeNe wrote on instagram.
So Poison is in the garbage business. It’s not the type of garbage business you might think – like producing garbage songs for a wife who can’t sing or calling his sister garbage on national TV, but he actually bought some big garbage truck to recycle documents. Melissa wants to give the truck a makeover so it stands out and they get more attention for their business. Melissa suggests putting wings on the truck. And the slogan, “Going green gives you wings.” First of all, she stole that from RedBull. Second of all, I don’t know why she didn’t just glue some Melissa Gorga jewelry on it and blast “On Display” from the speakers while it cruises around town. Better yet, old J. Faux could dance on top of the truck! Third of all, what does the leasing agent from a car dealership have to do with Joe’s trash business?
NeNe claims they never even knew each other to begin with and pretended to be friends for the show. But at the crux of their friendship split was Kenya Moore, whom NeNe feels Cynthia betrayed her with. Of course, NeNe claimed she has no intention of ever speaking to Cynthia again. But Cynthia isn’t ready to let go of the friendship just yet!
Jacqueline Laurita is returning – briefly – at the end of this season when filming resumes to capture Teresa Giudice‘s sentencing drama. Jacqueline revealed that she’ll actually just be filming to support season extra Kathy Wakile‘s newest dessert launch, but rumor has it the real reason producers pulled Jacqueline in was in the hopes of a showdown with Dina!
Jacqueline has also remained friendly with Teresa after the two made amends last season, so presumably they were hoping both Dina and Jacqueline could film together in support of their friend as she deals with her sentencing news. Well – Dina was not havin’ any of that! What’s that zen you speak of? More like ignore what you don’t want to see! The usual.
Thank you lord – because Stassi is the best villain on reality TV and I need her in my pseudo-reality life. Having her in my real life, however, oh no – nope! Don’t want that!
Stassi is one helluva a vindictive girl and after sleeping with Stassi’s boyfriend Jax Taylor and lying about it (for a year!) Kristen Doute is facing Stassi’s wrath – big time! Luckily Stassi has a Kristen-hating partner in her corner, their boss at SUR Lisa Vanderpump!
Oh it makes me sad – but it looks like another end to an infamous reality TV friendship! After a season full of Tamra Barney‘s crazy ish-stirring antics, even long-time bestie Vicki Gunvalson is tired of the nonsense.
Vicki was visibly shocked after her Real Housewives Of Orange County co-stars apprised her of Tamra’s backstabbing behavior while in Bali. Tamra faced a trial by fire in which she fled the scene, claiming she feared saying something she’d regret. While Vicki had nothing to say at the time, she has plenty to say about Tamra now – and she’s officially over the drama!
“Tamra saying that I wanted to her to ‘go down’ isn’t the truth,” Vicki says. “I cherish my girlfriends and their trust, and there is NO way I ever had any desire to see her ‘go down’ or be hurt this year.”
“I’m tired of her causing problems and never being called out on it because of people fearing her backlash,” Vicki admits. “Every season and every year, she has gone after someone. I don’t know if that’s for the show or if it’s really how she is.”
So this may have been the shortest reality TV friendship of all time! Amber Marchese and Nicole Napolitano are NOT FRIENDS. Nicole has terminated her friendship after “Scamber” lied about her breaking up a marriage. She also claims she didn’t yank Amber’s hair without reason – Amber swatted her hand away from her face, and Nicole was like so totally justified in yanking Amber’s hair out. These new Real Housewives Of New Jerseygirls are disturbing #TooThirsty
Still, Nicole is glad this episode showed her Amber’s true colors. “Happy this episode at Bobby’s house is over. Again this was supposed to be a fun-filled night for all…along with a chance to hear an apology that now (knowing SCAMBER’S true character) I realize she had no intention of giving.”
“This was the first time ever that Bobby and I were hosting a party at his home. I never wanted it to go there,” Nicole admits. “We had our friends who are police officers and fellow firefighters from our town attend, and I would have never wanted to put them in a bad position. I was happy to hear Melissa [Gorga] state when she met Amber for lunch how Amber was the aggressive one and how she whacked my hand first. Amazing how when the Mar-crazies left the party it was like all the evil was swept out of the house. The black cloud had lifted!”
