So everyone is pretending they like each other to head out to Arizona and celebrate Melissa Gorga's birthday at some spa retreat. Melissa isn't feeling too good - I think what Melissa is coming down with is a bad feeling of impending drama…
Before everyone packs up their sequin-sucking chuckalina bathing suits, Teresa Giudice is doing a cooking demo at the mall for the 85 & Older Club. I mean seriously, yeah spinach will probably save your life but you likely have to start eating it before you're eligible for AARP.
Kathy Wakile shows up to support whatever it is Teresa is doing with olive oil, bread, and loud rambling. I remain focused on her hair. It's literally a hair helmet (hairmet?) at this point, all plasticy and just perched there. I'm perplexed. So is Wallpaper; she's confused about how all of the sudden Teresa is absolved of her sins? Kathy tells her, 'It's not like a sponge, Tre, you can't just wipe it over the mess with some kitchen cleaner and have it be gone. This is like a big mess - like you need a hazmat team, but hey – let's go heal on another Vacations By Bravo. Free shit is free shit, right?!' Cannoli and Wine for the Jersey Woman's Soul by Kathy!
Remember that childhood expression that when you point a finger you have four more pointing back at you? Newly minted delusional hair care maven Teresa Giudice recently launched Milania Hair Care (and won an award for it!) and despite her own um… helmety plasticy looking locks she's now dispensing advice along with her shampoo!
Kenya was recently being evasive about whether or not she'd return to the show that reignited her career (and made her faux-booty the subject of much discussion) because she wanted way, way more money – she all but confirms her status when discussing the new lady!
"We've met someone named Mynique, but I wouldn't say officially if they were part of the show or not," Kenya said about reported new castmate Mynique Smith.
Despite the less than inspired decor sparsely populating her own mansion, Melissa Gorga is focusing on her own "Italian Style" home decor venture!
Basing the collection, which will be featured on Joss & Main's site in a special flash sale on her Italian-Renaissance inspired home, Melissa's " Home Italian Style" collection features furniture, upholstered pieces, rugs and accessories which represent her own personal tastes! Yikes.
"I want you to walk in and feel like our home is something you haven’t seen before," the Real Housewives of New Jersey star gushed. "I always strive to find pieces that are unique. I love the wow factor."
Oh Adriana de Moura – little tip: don't tell a lie when it can easily be disputed on film or in writing! #Housewives101
After getting engaged last season on Real Housewives of Miami the media discovered that Adriana had actually been married to Frederic Marq since 2008. Her rep said they got a marriage license but because of an error in the info on the license it was nullified. THEN it emerged that a month after obtaining said erroneous license, Frederic and Adriana actually got married.
Fast forward to last week's season premiere of RHOM and Adriana is now claiming they got a license but called the wedding off before actually getting married. Well that's Adriana's new storyline and she's sticking to it! "This season is drama galore," Adriana hints.
“Maybe 8 weeks into the relationship, Frederic asked me to marry him. I was in that lustful stage and the sex was great, so I said yes, "Adrianainsists to NBC Latino. "But when I started to feel conflicted, we started fighting and he finally pulled the plug."
I don't know if there's magic powers in the blinged out bible or she just finally decided that being herself was better than trying too hard. Or maybe Jim Bellino let her have brain back and reversed the lobotomy? Because not only is Alexis thinking for herself she's setting a good example for the other ladies to put pettiness aside and forgiving but not forgetting!
"It's easy to forgive, even though you don't necessarily forget. . .," Alexis writes in her Bravo blog of all the changed relationships she's experienced this season.
Good lord – in reality TV world a divorce last longer than a marriage! The latest couple who can never resolve their differences whether in holy matrimony or bitter divorce is Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif!
The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars finalized their divorce last year and despite contentious arguing and unfounded abuse claims finally came to a 50/50 custody agreement. However, some of the particulars are still being debated. Adrienne and Paul's 11-year-old son Gavin has been the subject of the latest family court drama.
Gavin reportedly has "some learning and attention issues" so Adrienne and Paul were arguing about where he should attend school. Adrienne, says TMZ, wanted him to continue in his regular school yet receive special attention. But Paul preferred to send him to a school that specialized in learning disabilities.
