The creator and producer of the show has always dreamed of owning her own television empire (watch out Kris Jenner!) – a veritable mafia of her own, if you will – and has big plans to not only expand the reality show franchise, but venture into scripted TV, food and wine, and even movies!
Jennifer says she always knew she wouldn't be a mob wife herself, but growing up in the lifestyle and around those women she was fascinated. And circumstances sort of decided for her since she was "book smart as well as street smart".
"I knew from a young girl that I did not want to marry a man and stay at home and take care of the family," Jennifer shared with The Examiner. "Starting from kindergarten I was up (and ready to go to school) before my mother and my sister (Renee)," she recalls. Translation: Jennifer inherited her father's head for business but was too smart to end up in the mob herself!
Sources reveal to TMZ (so you know it's gotta be true!) that almost immediately after the separation announcement was dropped Bruce went off to shoot scenes with Kendall and Kylie. The family is still filming season 8. And there's more: Bruce will continue to be part of season 9 (rumored to be Kimmie's last after she becomes a legit A-List baby mutha fashionista. #yeahright)!
The upcoming season will feature Kris and Bruce "living separately" but getting together for various family events – of which there will be many, of course. "The family is very conscious of the fact that they can make more in syndication," sources said.
If you never thought the day would come when Melissa Gorga dropped the victim act; well you're wrong!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star took to twitter to admit that maybe, just maybe the nonsense with Teresa Giudice is so over. Oh yeah – and that possibly she also has something to do with the problems in their relationship. I kid you not – THIS REALLY HAPPENED!
I'm not judging you for being any other kind of hoe except for the famehoe kind. Please and kindly seek help for your addiction to attention and we'll forget about all the other unsavory antics you've pulled.
That's not gonna happen right? Anyway, Farrah has gone from Teen Mom reject, star of a now defunct reality show, to sexytimes maven who considers herself something of an expert. She recently appeared on The Doctors to talk about her sex toy line modeled off her lady parts, sex tapes, and how her new business ventures will affect Sophia's childhood.
Melissa Gorga's new modus operandi seems to be a different day, a different recollection, a different excuse! Recently her book Love Italian Style came under fire for promoting some not so fabulous advice.
Melissa sat down with Vh1's The Buzz to discuss the show and her latest attempt to get attention book;claiming she wanted "controversy" to get people talking about the book. Likening herself to Miley Cyrus, Melissa brags, "She wanted controversy, her plan worked!" So, is that stuff what Melissa actually does in her marriage or she just wanted to sell books? Just. stop. tawking.
Joanna Krupa and Romain finally had a breakthrough in their relationship. Adriana de Mouracontinuedto be insane by insisting her wedding guests dress pure and innocent as angels, newborn fawns, and daisies at her sham re-wedding, which is anything but fresh as the first snow.
Joanna has Lisa Hochstein over for dinner. Joanna doesn't cook or use dishes so she serves sushi and soup out of the restaurant takeout boxes. I was getting the BPA heebie-jeebies watching them drink miso out of the big plastic cartons. The food doesn't really matter since the wine is the main course.
Last week Johnny Karagiorgis was threatening to sue Bravo and other Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members related to a brawl that took place at the Moxie Salon/Posche 2 opening. Johnny believed producers and cast members conspired against him to lure into a confrontation and that the fight was pre-meditated for a storyline.
On October 2nd Johnny and his wife Penny Karagiorgis officially filed a lawsuit in Hackensack, N.J! Named as defendants are Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita, Sirens Media LLC (the producers of RHONJ), NBC Universal (Bravo's parent company), Bravo Media, and Moxie Salon. Kim DePaola is not specifically named as a defendant despite everyone claiming she orchestrated at least part of the set-up!
Johnny believes the incident was arranged to increase ratings. Jacqueline, on the other hand, denies any such incidents occurred!
I just don't know what to think about Real Housewives of New Jersey. I always have such hope! Despite an entire season of therapy and what seemed like true reconciliation, the Giudice and the Gorga families are right back where they started.
At last night's reunion it was revealed that the families didn't see each other all summer. Reality Tea's source gives us an exclusive on what's happened since the reunion taped and where the families stand.
This weekend Teresa Giudice's daughter Gabriella celebrated her 9th birthday and while Melissa Gorga attended, Reality Tea's source reveals that Joe Gorga did not! "Of course, Teresa was upset. Melissa did attend, Gabriella is her godchild." Above is the entire family at the party, Poison isn't there!
