During their bankruptcy proceedings (which led to their federal indictment and imprisonment) Teresa and Joe were allowed to retain possession of the home because they owed more than it was worth. Unfortunately with all their other financial issues the couple couldn’t make the mortgage payments of $10,679 per month and as of December 2014, lapsed into foreclosure. Again.
With their house in foreclosure, Teresa and Joe have been trying to sell at $2.99 million with no takers. Apparently no one wants to live in the fraudulently gilded remains of failed delusions of grandeur. Last week the indebted Real Housewives Of New Jersey couple attempted to contest the bank’s foreclosure proceedings, but had their request denied.
Caroline Manzo justifies the trip as a great experience for Lauren and Vito Scalia to learn to fly on their own as Caroline and Al remain “waiting in the wings” – or first class rather. They upgraded, but left the rest of peons back in coach. “It’s a farewell to Lauren Manzo,” describes Ma Smothers, as she hunkers down with her popcorn to watch the disaster of Lauren Scalia unfold. Don’t worry mommy is always waiting in the wings (or the hallway) with a hamper to help scoop up the mess!
14-year-old Gia Giudice, the eldest of Teresa and Joe Giudice‘s 4 daughters, is very aware of all the changes taking place in her life. As her mother prepares to return home from a year-long prison stint, Gia’s father Joe prepares to ‘go away’ to federal prison for 41 months. Following that Joe could face deportation as he is not a US Citizen.
“It could be worse,” acknowledges Gia; trying to keep a positive attitude. “My mom doesn’t want me or anyone to get emotional, so I try my best just to keep it all together.”
Thursday night – well very early Thursday morning to be precise – the Dash Dolls star crashed her car on the 101 freeway in LA. The accident happened around 3am! Malika was said to be leaving a birthday party when she apparently failed to call a cab and decided to drive herself home. The Kardashian limo service wasn’t available?
With Brandi along with Kim Richards out, Lisa says dynamics have drastically shifted. “It’s going to be a lot different in Season 6 because of the cast changes,” she dishes. Of course, new cast members doesn’t necessarily mean less drama!
“Having Kim gone is different,” explains Lisa. “But there are other dynamics and now there are other differences of opinion to keep it interesting. That is what makes us so fun to watch!” Hopefully “FUN” is the operative word – because last season’s sobriety whodunit was tiresome.
Heather Thomson recently announced her departure from Real Housewives Of New York after three seasons.Heather holla’d her way into our hearts(?) and minds during season 5, following the dramatic firing of half the original cast. Despite being the new gal, the Yummie Tummie entrepreneur wasn’t afraid to speak her mind – even if the person she was holla-ing at threatened bodily harm with a pinot glass. (Or a prosthetic leg).
Below we recap Heather’s standout moments from Real Housewives Of New York. Of which there were many! From stormy St. Tropez (and Turks and Caicos) situations, getting toaster oven burnt, Avivalicious insanity, and more.
