Kathy Wakile's daughter Victoria has just undergone surgery for a brain tumor!
This the second time the 20-year underwent surgery for a brain tumor. When Victoria was 10 she fainted on the beach during a family vacation and after numerous test discovered a benign brain tumor. Unfortunately the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars have had to relive the terrible nightmare all over again.
Kathytells Ok Magazine that Victoria has been feeling off and a second tumor was discovered. "We just passed her 10-year anniversary of the surgery, and she’s telling me that she’s just feeling off. She’s saying, ‘Mom, I just don’t feel right.’ She’s been experiencing some major headaches. She said, ‘Since it’s my 10 year anniversary, maybe we should make an appointment for a follow-up, an MRI just to check on things.’ The radiologist, he read it right on the spot. He said, ‘I think that there is some obstruction.’"
Melissa Gorga is following in the footsteps of some of her fellow housewives by trying on a new career hat — designer. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is set to premiere the Melissa Gorga Collection this July on HSN.
Despite the extravagant jewelry that Melissa may flaunt in her everyday life, her pieces are meant to be affordable statement pieces that are wearable with any look. "The collection is very versatile and features high-fashion statement pieces that are trendy and take you from day to night," she told Us Weekly exclusively. "The overall tone of the collection feels like a mix of sexy and sophisticated where you can wear a piece with a blazer or a black dress and a killer heel and rock it either way."
Melissa Gorga was a ray of sunshine in a teeny yellow bikini this weekend. Melissa and Joe Gorga frolicked around in the sand together and played a little catch with a football as they enjoyed some one-on-one time in Miami Beach.
Earlier this month Melissa made an appearance at a home show in Florida and answered audience questions about the new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She does confirm that along with Dina Manzo coming back,Kathy Wakile and her sister Rosie will be a part of the show and confirms that Jacqueline Laurita isn't returning nor is Danielle Staub – despite rumors. She dishes on Rosie's dating life, the new cast members and more. Check out the videos (and bikini photo gallery) below for the scoop.
We all know that Teresa Giudice and her husband, Joe, have cut plea deals in their individual fraud and conspiracy confessions, but how are they dealing with the possibility of prison time? Or the possible deportation of Joe Giudice back to Italy? Apparently they are looking to a higher power to prepare them for the pokey.
I think we can all admit that one of the most toxic Bravo franchises is Real Housewives of New Jersey. There is straight up malice and manipulation which seems to eclipse the regular ol' mean girl antics of the other series. That said, I believe that all the women on RHONJ are both guilty of the abhorrent behavior as well as victims of it. Case in point? Jacqueline Laurita. There were so many instances in which I felt sorry for her, yet as the seasons progressed, she became part of the problem.
Of course, when her son Nicolas was diagnosed with autism, Jacqueline's priorities shifted away from the drama, and there were several rumors circulating that she wouldn't return for a sixth season. Her daughter Ashlee recently debunked this gossip, but nothing has been confirmed. Perhaps if she does return, Jacq will use the opportunity to show viewers the woman we first met in season one.
Caroline admits her relationship with Teresa was strictly business, "She was never a friend. She was someone I worked with. Someone I knew." Caroline met Teresa through sister Dina Manzo and they quickly formed a tight-knit group on RHONJ – or so it appeared. Caroline claims she tried to have a legitimate relationship with Teresa, but Teresa wasn't interested!
Jacqueline was reportedly done and over the craziness of the show after five long drama-filled seasons, but it looks like that isn't so! We heard reports of film crews at her home, but many assumed she was possibly filming bits for Caroline's spinoff show or another project of her own. But Ashlee seems to confirm that Jacs will be on the show.
If you're totally and utterly confused about what the hell goes on in the world de Giudice, you are not alone!
Here we all were thinking that Teresa Giudice withdrew her bankruptcy filing in lieu of repaying her defrauded creditors the good ol' fashioned way – with work! But now media outlets are reporting Teresa and Joe, who both pled guilty to multiple financial fraud charges (including bankruptcy fraud), recently had their bankruptcy discharged. Which would mean they went forward with the filing? Seriously – any experts please chime in!
