Oh Real Housewives of New Jersey. I just don't know what to do with you. Like ever. Last night Melissa Gorga was officially accused of cheating by a former BFF who now doesn't like her. And since this is RHONJ some heavy betrayal was involved. Does anyone like Melissa in NJ? What did this girl do to make so many enemies? Did she give a lot of people unwanted sprinkle cookies?
Anyway, there was also talk of a retreat. I need a retreat from this show – am I invited?
Things begin with Wallpaper Wakile having a meeting of the minds in her brand new test kitchen. She's got her mixer all set up in one corner and the entire vast remainder of the industrial kitchen sits unused and empty. Pretty soon Kathy is going to start moving her bed, her dresser, all her clothes, etc in because if there's one things she's realized about ol' test kitchen – it's a great retreat from Richie. And one long overdue.
And speaking of retreats from hubbies, here comes Caroline Manzo. Is Al in the same country as her anymore? Caroline, Jacqueline Laurita, and Rosie the Rampager are meeting to talk about Rosie's big meet-n-drink with Teresa Giudice. Rosie reveals that the pounding on the table severely bruised the cartilage in her hand. Rosie needs serious help. Gross.
Tonight Teresa attempts to prove she's the bigger cannoli by planning a retreat to rebuild her family and end the Gorgadice bickering. Hopefully she can keep her Milania Weave on long enough to avoid any fireworks. We know it's all made for TV drama but it will be nice to see an end to all the fighting!
Oh poor Aviva Drescher! She just wants everything to be about her, her, her! Sadly being an overgrown Veruca Salt (with a creepy daddy to boot) doesn't win you friends or fans on reality TV!
Rumor has it that producers for Real Housewives of New York hired an image consultant to boost Aviva's appeal to viewers. Good luck with that, Bravo! Aviva has been spotted filming several scenes with her longtime friend Amanda Sandersaccording to the NY Post's Page Six.
Sources reveal that Sanders, who is actually an image consultant in her real life, was hired by Bravo to "make over" Aviva and turn her into a more "likeable" Housewife – to both fans and her castmates!
The Real Housewives of Orange County star shares her hot body secrets and no surprise it involves junk food deprivation (laaaame!) and exercises (laaaamer!). Didn't Lydia McLaughlin accuse her of not eating?
Gretchen says her road to body acceptance and health has been difficult. “I’ve struggled in the past with having an eating disorder way back in the day in high school and going through yoyo dieting and trying every pill on the market," Gretchen confesses to RadarOnline. "But none of it worked [because] I wasn’t feeding my body or taking care of myself." Wasn't this Alexis' storyline already?
"I definitely want to," Joanna says of getting pregnant, "but not in the near future. But who knows? Sometimes things happen after too many vodka tonics at Mynt!"
"If we have a boy, I pray he looks like Romain because he was the cutest little boy," Joanna shares with The Dish. "And I'd want a girl to look like me! But I'd really love to have twins. My dad's a twin and they say it skips a generation. I'd love that. Wham, bam and be done with it!"
And Heather does not condone drama among zillion dollar wedding gowns, pulling focus away from TAMRA'S DAY or lying about your professed acting gigs. So not kosher! Fancy Pants calls out several of the ladies of RHOC for forgetting their manners and for having trouble with the truth.
Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."
SoTamra Barney is once again on the warpath where Gretchen Rossi is concerned. Who is she going to phone at the reunion this year? Did she take the friendship bracelet back?
Of course Gretchen may not deserve Tamra's friendship after all the lies and manipulations she's been attempting to dish out this season, which is exactly what Tamra takes issue with in her latest Real Housewives of Orange County blog!
Tamrawrites aboutGretchen's ever-changing truths and point-blank calls her a liar with regard to Alexis Bellino being invited dress shopping and her alleged role on Malibu Country. Tamra also wonders about why Gretchen was so desperate for attention she tried to make bridal shopping all about her. Ummm… maybe because Gretch was supposed to get that wedding spinoff first?
