Jacqueline Laurita is returning – briefly – at the end of this season when filming resumes to capture Teresa Giudice‘s sentencing drama. Jacqueline revealed that she’ll actually just be filming to support season extra Kathy Wakile‘s newest dessert launch, but rumor has it the real reason producers pulled Jacqueline in was in the hopes of a showdown with Dina!
Jacqueline has also remained friendly with Teresa after the two made amends last season, so presumably they were hoping both Dina and Jacqueline could film together in support of their friend as she deals with her sentencing news. Well – Dina was not havin’ any of that! What’s that zen you speak of? More like ignore what you don’t want to see! The usual.
Jim reached out to us to share his side of the story and explain the circumstances regarding custody of his two sons, his ex-wife’s legal situation, and the truth behind his involvement in the Whistleblower action.
Whistle Blower Action
Jim makes it clear he has “never” had any trouble with the law. Jim explains he and his former company Cell Therapeutics became embroiled in a civil lawsuit which explains his desire to acquire a maximum award from the judge.
Teresa Giudice is the master of putting on a happy face, despite the drama surrounding her. She’s always pretending everything is fine! But finally, unfortunately, the facade is being forced to crack as she and husband Joe Giudice deal with the upcoming federal sentencing related to a 41 count fraud indictment and the sudden loss of Joe’s father.
In addition, with Real Housewives of New Jersey airing, Teresa’s problems are about to be thrust in our faces to dissect. And of course, since nothing with RHONJ is as it seems, the recent so-called reunited Teresa and Melissa Gorga are already falling apart.
Reality Tea received an exclusive scoop from an inside source about what’s going on behind the scenes at RHONJ ‘Headquarters’.
As with everything involving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, things are not ever as they seem. And in the case of Melissa Gorga's $3.8 million Montville mansion, the cracks are showing – literally! Kai Patterson's spokesperson reached out to shoot down the claims made in the press yesterday byJoe and Melissa regarding the sale of their home and their attempt to evict him from the mansion for non-payment. It would appear there's another side to the story (shocker!) and it's a doozy!
Mr. Patterson's rep shared an extensive response which includes a laundry list of repairs not completed on the home – with photo evidence and more. Get your popcorn and Pinot. There are BEAVERS running amok in the Gorga mansion, y'all!
"In response to your article related to the Gorga's home, Mr. Patterson's rental agreement was modified on November 21, 2013, which changed the price of the rent to $10,000 per month (See Attachment: Modification of Lease and Purchase Terms Executed by All Parties on 11-21-2014.pdf – Paragraph 3b). A subsequent agreement changed the start date of the agreement executed on November 21, 2013 to February 26, 2014 and possession was taken the property on February 28, 2014. The February 26, 2014 agreement pushed back the increase in rent until after October 2014, which the Gorgas failed to provide to the Court (See Attachment: Paragraph 1 of Modified Rider as of 02-26-2014). In addition to paying $10,000 rent, an additional $10,000 per month was to be paid towards the purchase of the property, and those payments were to be used make several needed repairs before and after taking possession of the property. Although the Gorgas were initially paid $10,000 rent, and a deposit of $25,000, which was to be applied to the purchase price of the home and used to make the repairs, none of the repairs were made on the list of repairs provided below (See: Needed Repairs List and Pictures Below)."
Million Dollar Listing New York season three kicks off tomorrow and Ryan Serhant sat down with us to chat about what we can expect (a war) and gives us the exclusive news that his girlfriend will be appearing on the show this season!
I always love my job here at RT. What better way to get away from my day job than to pour a glass of wine or three and spend the evening with my favorite reality stars? Of course, yesterday, I loved this job more than normal as I got to have my morning coffee with none other than the star of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing: New York. That's right, I spent some time chatting with Ryan Serhant. Be jealous. It's only natural! 😉 If you're like me (and I know most of you are!), you're waiting anxiously for the third season of MDL: NY which premieres tomorrow night, April 2nd, at 9 PM ET/PT.
Adriana described the ups and downs in her relationship with Joanna Krupa and just what exactly happened between her and Lea Black. She also discussed some of the things viewers don't know about her and talked season 4 – if there is one!
Describing the reunion as "emotionally draining and explosive," Adriana says many of the conflicts are "bound to happen."
Do you have any regrets?
"Not really. I regret the downfall of my friendship with Lea because she's so unflexible and unsympathetic. I regret the fact that our boys aren't as close they used to be."
Reality Tea had the pleasure of chatting with Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi about the new season. She's really looking forward to it!
"I’m excited about this season because I think people will get to see a new side of me that hasn’t been that evident in past seasons," shared GG. "I’m hoping the audience will see a more compassionate side of me."
While hosting The Abbey's 8th Annual Christmas in September Charity Event, "Klassless Kyle" turned her wrath towards Lisa's friend Daniel DiCriscio. You may remember him as a former friend of Faye's, who sold him out once she thought she hit the big leagues interior decorating Paris Hilton's pad (which if you've seen The Bling Ring is nothing to brag about from a design standpoint).
Daniel was a guest at the event, invited presumably by Kyle, which he quickly realized was a set-up for the hair-whipping, high-kicking, splits wielding Kyle to scream at him about how much Lisa sucks and accuse of him of trying to ruin her reputation and Faye's. Lovely. Last year the two had issues at an after party for Lisa's appearance on Dancing With The Stars.
