In just under a year, Melissa Gorga‘s business arrangement with Jackie Beard Robinson and envy boutique fell apart. Jackie wants to share her side of what happened and also wishes the Real Housewives of New Jersey star the best on reopening the store in time for the Spring season.

Jackie shared, “Just to clarify a couple things, Melissa and I were partners. I decided that I wanted out. In the termination agreement we’ve been working on for months, we decided that I would take all of the inventory and I was going to liquidate the store… because I basically own everything.”

Plenty of people were skeptical over Melissa Gorga‘s latest business venture last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  When the reality star opened up a clothing boutique with a partner, many stories circulated that Melissa was just the “face” of the store and not the actual owner. Turns out that might be somewhat true, at least according to Kim D.  Melissa’s business partner packed up the store and is now selling off the inventory at Posche Thursday night!

Our source shared, “Melissa’s store, which was really never her store, is closed down!! All of the merchandise is out. Nothing is left but the fixtures! The real owner, Jackie Robinson, took everything.”   Our source adds, “The store was always just a storyline for Melissa. She wasn’t the real owner. It was never about her having a career. It was just for the show! Melissa would have had zero storyline with the store. Same like the singing, the book, and the jewelry line….”

Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.

What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?

There have been some infamous Christmas moments on Real Housewives of New Jersey over the years. From Teresa Giudice throwing Melissa Gorga’s sprinkle cookies in the garbage, to the the two sisters-in-law ending their feud, this holiday has always been a big deal to Teresa. The viewers know how much the queen of RHONJ lives for Christmas and I’m sure that a lot of them are curious about how she is going to celebrate the holiday while her husband Joe Giudice is in jail.

I will never forget Teresa’s emotional homecoming perfectly timed with Christmas celebrations last year, but I have to assume that this year is going to be a way less happy occasion.

Since he’s spending Christmas in the slammer, Joe Giudice decided to give Teresa Giudice a gift that was not purchased at the prison commissary – he wrote a song to celebrate their 17 years of marriage together.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star dreamed of John Legend crooning his love song and surprising Teresa with it while he was behind bars. Playing Santa Clause, Andy Cohen made Joe’s dream come true when he begged John to do an impromptu performance of the ballad on Watch What Happens Live last night.

Ashlee Holmes

Let’s give props where they’re due –  Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes has come a long way from being the rebellious teen we saw during the early days of Real Housewives of New Jersey.

Ashlee is now a certified makeup artist, a new mom, and an engaged woman. Not only that, but she recently announced she has two new ventures in the works: a bridal business and a beauty blog. Considering Ashlee is engaged, she is probably doing a lot of wedding research, so it makes sense to think she is in the know when it comes to all things bride.

Ashlee Holmes and Cameron Hendrix Malleo

When Jacqueline Laurita‘s daughter Ashlee Holmes announced earlier this year that she was expecting her first child with her fiance, Pete Malleo, many Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers wondered how the once bratty, self-centered teen would be as a mom. Well, according to Chris Laurita, she’s been “absolutely amazing.”

About her “amazing” transformation, Chris shared, “I cannot believe how much she has matured and what a great mother she is. After some of our challenges and struggles with her through the years – and a lot of people have seen that on TV – it kind of catapulted her into being an adult and a very responsible one at that. She’s very, very, very attentive with her son.”
