Yes, you read the above right! The tangled web of 'I hate you, I love you, I want to destroy your life, oh but I just want us to be close again' that is Real Housewives of New Jersey just got… crazier? Hold on – you're in for a wild one!
Yesterday we reported that despite an alleged reconciliation of the Gorgadice families, Joe Gorga said things were still very, very bad between the families.
Following two seasons of the same fighting between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (and massive fan backlash), Bravo hired new producers to handle S5 of RHONJ as they apparently want a storyline with a more positive spin. Melissa hinted at this in an earlier interview.
According to an exclusive obtained by TamaraTattles, producers are so desperate for this family feud to end they are forcing Teresa, Melissa, and the Joes to film together and make nice (our source confirmed they held a staged playdate to appear like they are working things out).
In a new interview, Phaedra says she wins by default because at least her posterior is real and not a Made in China implant!
“If you’re gonna sell a video talking about bottoms, you need to have one that’s homegrown,” Phaedrashares with In Touch Weekly. “I’ve never been altered by plastic surgery,” Phaedra says. “My butt is really my butt. [Kenya’s] is full of silicone!”
Kenya of course, has a re-butt-al. “I’m not opposed to plastic surgery," Kenya says. “I’m just not a big fan — and I’m glad that I don’t need it.”
I'm sure you all remember Bobby Trendy as Anna Nicole Smith's friend and interior decorator. Bobby reached out to us to share a story about another friend of his who has allegedly done him wrong! Hey – everyone's favorite grifter strikes again!
Bobby accuses the Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls star of borrowing several dresses from him – designed for charity, I might add – and then failing to return them OR pay him for them!
The reality hoegul, who on the most recent episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami was just lambasting and berating sister Kourtney Kardashian for putting her small children before the demands of the Kardashian dynasty, has just announced that she too would like to abandon reality TV for her personal life!
In a recent interview with DuJour Magazine, Kim announced her intentions to quit Keeping Up With The Kardashians after season 9, which is due to begin filming soon and will air in the fall. Kim says Kanye encouraged her decision to leave reality TV, or what she calls "the best family movie ever."
Despite the controversy, last season's cast returns in its entirety and joining them is newbie Lydia McLauglin. Below are photos and bios for the season eight cast and I am excited to see a whole lot less blonde extensions!
Real Housewives of Orange County premieres April 1 at 8/9c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LYDIA? WHO DO YOU THINK WILL CAUSE THE MOST DRAMA THIS SEASON?
Yesterday there were quite a few reports that with Melissa and Poison Gorga attending Teresa Giudice's Milania Hair Care launch, the families were burying the hatchet and finally getting along.
Imagine – a Real Housewives of New Jersey filled with peace, love, and siblings that speak to each other. No one would watch, right? Well before anyone jumps the gun and assumes that all is tranquil, Poison is setting the record straight.
And OF COURSE everyone still hates each other. Le sigh. “It’s a dirty situation right now,” Poisontells RumorFix.
Despite Melissa and Teresa both agreeing to film another season together (possibly their last as Teresa continues to make moves towards her own show) in the hopes of rebuilding their relationship, Joe says “they are not in a good place.”
Brandi told the radio host that on her first season as a 'Friend of the Housewives' she earned a paltry $18k. That's barely enough to cover spray tans and manicures!
Lucky for her, Brandi says since all the other ladies hated her and wanted her off the show, Bravo hired her full-time! "They just didn't want me there!" Brandi admitted. "They were like, 'Oh, she doesn't fit in. She's out.' " Now as a full-time cast member Brandi says she earns on the low-end of the totem pole raking in $136,000.
