If you were hoping the Kardashians would fade into obscurity following a year of famewhore antics gone wrong, think again! They’re back and apparently as big as ever. According to the ratings, the Sunday night season premiere of Keeping Up With The Kardashians hauled in an impressive number of viewers.
Nearly 3 million (yes, I said million, not hundred) people tuned in to catch a glimpse of Kimmie Kake‘s butt, Khloe Kardashian‘s paternity drama, and a Kanye West sighting. I personally watch for Bruce Jenner‘s mutated face. I keep hoping and hoping to see some semblance of normalcy return to the rubber mask that has eclipsed his head.
Most shocking, the ratings for KUWTK are up 16% since last season’s premiere. And surprisingly the show did really well in the coveted 18-49 year-old-demographic, with 1.5M women making up the viewership last Sunday according to The Hollywood Reporter. I thought you people were boycotting?!

Oh lawdy, last night was a night of meltdowns wasn’t it?Real Housewives of New Jersey was an emotional hot mess of whining, tantrums, crying, cursing, bickering, double talk and fat talk. Sometimes we all freak out – even if we are a forty-something father of four or a ten-year-old girl or an overweight twenty-four year old woman. You know what – we’re all just people at the end of the day.
But before we get to tantrums, let’s talk butt cheeks. There were a lot of those weren’t there? There were also bras and tampons. And I learned something important today that I never particularly wanted to know… Teresa Giudice didn’t wear a tampon until she was 27. Did she never go to the beach on her period until she was married?
So things begin in the car with Teresa and Joe Giudice. She tells him about the pool party and he starts screaming and cursing about how much he hates her family and will throw them out of his house and kill people. It was horrible. Juicy needs an intravenous drip of prozac and an anger management coach. Teresa was mortified – as well she should be – dump this loser please. He’s bad for her image and her self-esteem.

On last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the family feud continued. Teresa Giudice andJoe Gorga exchanged heated words at Kathy Wakile‘s pool party and family and friends remained divided over who is to blame for all the issues. It seems there will never be a resolution between the Gorgadice families and it’s made worse by Joe Giudice palpable hatred towards Teresa’s family.
As we all know the issues between Teresa and Melissa Gorga are nothing new. Reality Tea’s source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Teresa’s family has never approved of Joe‘s marriage to Melissa and it drove a considerable wedge between the family – and that Joe G-to-the-Iudice calling Melissa a “tramp” on last week’s episode is a sentiment shared by the whole family!
“Teresa was used to always having her brother Joe around and when he got married, yes things changed,” our source shares of the family back story. “They had a bond like no other brother and sister I have ever seen. It was actually pretty odd. They were obsessed with each other. Teresa put her brother first, always.”
Up first, Reality Weekly is reporting that Caroline is so annoyed with Teresa’s presence in her life she is trying to get Bravo to fire the drama besieged housewife! Caroline is apparently trying to convince her fellow castmates to all band together and refuse to film with Teresa. A tactic that was also used in part to oust Danielle Staub from the series.
“Caroline is the ringleader, as usual, and has pulled all the other New Jersey Housewives into the plan,” an insider discloses. This is a tactic that often backfires. When Jill Zarin attempted to do this to Bethenny Frankel, Bravo retaliated by handing her a spinoff…something Teresa has, apparently, already been angling for!
Teresa Guidicehas become the break-out star for Real Housewives of New Jersey. But unfortunately with fame and success there often comes a price. While Teresa’s third cookbook has already landed on the NY Times Bestseller list, her home life and family life remain in upheaval. And while she was competing on the hugely popular Celebrity Apprentice her friends and co-stars have all but disowned her.
Plagued by rumors of her husband’s infidelity, along with his legal and financial woes, Teresa put her big girl panties on and went to work. And apparently, Mrs. Giudice, who despite her tongue twisted ways, appears to be a bit of a marketing genius. Teresa intends to have the last laugh and spin all of the drama to her favor. In a new story by Us Weekly several sources reveal Teresa’s plans to turn lemons into fabulicous lemonade.
Teresa’s marriage has been making headlines since the first season of RHONJ, while Joe Giudice often behaves like a drunken buffoon, Teresa consistently defends him. “Teresa puts on blinders when it comes to Joe,” a family insider tells the mag. “It’s difficult for her to accept he’s such a scumbag.” Indeed, Teresa recently confessed to losing her virginity to her husband of twelve years, and she has ardently defended him through all his tribulations.
Ahhh… Melissa Gorga… back in the press defending yourself. Last year it was stripper allegations, this year it’s financial woes! The Real Housewife of New Jersey star fell under scrutiny when she and husband Joe Gorga listed both their Montville, New Jersey mansion and their shore house for sale last week. Melissa claims the couple is just ready for a change and it has absolutely nothing at all to do with speculation that they can’t pay the billz!
“The rumors that Joe and I can’t afford our mortgage payments and bills are 100 percent false,” Melissa told The Huffington Post. “Since when does selling your house mean you are broke?” Well, I can think of a time or two that it has, I’m not saying this is one of them. I’m just saying it happens!
Melissa, herself, told Reality Tea that she and Joe have always been financially stable and there is absolutely no validity to the rumors, citing proof that their mortgages have always been sound. Melissa’s publicist provided documentation to Reality Tea which directly proves Melissa’s statements about their home ownership.
*Sigh* When I started watching the Real Housewives of Orange County way back when I was intrigued by the wealthy and fantastical lifestyles of women very different from me. As Real Housewives of Atlanta and Real Housewives of New Jersey came onto the Housewives scenes, they were my two favorites of the franchise. They were light-hearted, silly, and kooky – and I loved the genuine friendships along with the realistic seeming issues between friends.
As with Atlanta, no one on this show likes each other anymore. It’s painful and obvious that even the supposed friendship scenes are fabricated and the ladies are dialing it in. Additionally, I am very tired of the husbands dominating the storyline. This is a show about Housewives – I don’t care about your hubby. If they are that interested in being housewives, get a sex change!
