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.
Because Teresa Giudice has nothing more pressing to worry about in her life, she's making sure we all know that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga was not the only Real Housewife invited to the MTV VMA's last night.
Sunday afternoon Teresa Tweeted that she turned down an invite to the VMAs to spend the weekend with her family, which might not be the whole truth. You're shocked, I know.
Yesterday night Melissa Gorga was on WWHL. There she was cross-examined about the myriad of rumors that are her life. They don't call it six degrees of Melissa Gorga for nothing!
Among the allegations Melissa has been hit with on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a cheating scandal concerning her ex-boyfriend Bryan. A few episodes back Melissa's former BFFL Jan met up with Kim D where she dropped a salacious bomb about what Melissa was doing early in her marriage to Poison. Here's a hint: she wasn't doing Poison!
Melissa denied it of course, and blamed Teresa Giudice for spreading rumors. Last night she denied it again and accused Jan of being after camera time. Aren't they all!
Our source chimed in to allege that Melissa is telling tall tales and Teresa is definitely not out to get her!

So in case you haven't heard, Joe Giudice was charged with like 3 zillion money fraud related indictments. Which is about how much money he also owes because of bankruptcy debts related to falsifying income. And when he's done there he owes the IRS big too. Long story short, homeboy is in biiig trouble!
Among the revelations that emerged about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star during the court proceedings was that, despite being married to Teresa Giudice for like 15 years, Joe never bothered to become a U.S. citizen. Which means he's still an Italian citizen, since he was born there. And since he's not a U.S. citizen, as a felon or a convicted offender he could be deported!
We've been wondering how likely it was that ol' Juicy could be shipped off to Italy and lucky us, we got the opportunity to speak to an immigration attorney who gave us some insight into how cases such as these generally work.
