Real Housewives of New Jersey

As long as there has been reality television, there have been reality television feuds. And of course, as long as there have been Real Housewives, there have been Real Housewives feuds. Case in point, the current feud involving Teresa and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast!

If you watched the first half of the New Jersey reunion last week, you saw, as did the rest of the world, what would appear to be a very unlikely housewives’ feud between former friends and now enemies Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo. And as we learn on tonight’s reunion conclusion, the Guidice/Manzo blow-up seems to have undertones of Manzo versus Manzo as Teresa makes sure to bring up the discord between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo.

But first in an interview with People right after the reunion, Teresa claims to love her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga despite just telling In Touch Weekly that Melissa married her brother Joe Gorga for his money. “I love my family,” states Teresa. “I love Melissa. My brother is married to her for seven years… I’m trying to make things better.” Teresa adds: “They are trying to make it look like I’m hurting Melissa. But, if anything, I always stuck by her.” Always stuck by her???

When it comes to Caroline, Teresa plays the victim changes her tune, saying, “I don’t get Caroline’s problem with me. I never did anything to intentionally hurt people.” Maybe, maybe not, but I certainly never heard her apologize for unintentionally hurting people. Claiming she was “set up” by her cast mates on the reunion, Tre continues, “I never, ever got in between Dina and Caroline. It’s none of my business.” That may very well be the case, but one has to wonder, why does she even bring it up tonight then?

Maybe her reason is spite. Caroline did reveal on national television that Teresa recently called brother Joe an a$$hole. Family tit-for-tat, perhaps? You air my dirty laundry, I’ll air yours! Thankfully, Caroline has taken to her Bravo blog to clear up any confusion on her part.

She writes, “I don’t regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn’t hide my feelings. I didn’t see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga’s face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa’s true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn’t deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it.”

Caroline also touched on the comments Teresa made about her in her cookbook which included calling her 1/16th Italian. “It was never about the Italian remark, it was about the underhanded sneaky insults towards the rest of us followed by an insincere apology. I referred to her once as a modern day Lucille Ball because of her flighty “innocence” and goofy personality back in the day. To use my words as a defense against your insulting remarks towards my son is unbelievable. Apology not accepted.”

Discussing her issues with Dina, Caroline states that her reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet on the reunion had less to do with her pride and more to do with her parents. She says, “My fear in having this issue exposed had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about my parents.” She continues, “Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start.” Ouch!

Caroline continues to discuss the feud with her sister, admitting, “Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it’s a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I’m only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass.”

Dina echoes her sister’s sentiments, stating, “Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister. I wish all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives. As far as my relationship with my sister is concerned I’m sure in time things will mend itself.”

Caroline finishes up her blog by stating: “Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”

So Teresa didn’t cause the feud, she just brings it up tonight on the second half the reunion? I, for one, can’t wait to see the drama unfold. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s madness below. The conclusion of the reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 10PM ET.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice is firing back at her costars in a big way by gracing the latest cover of In Touch Weekly magazine!

According to the mag, the real reason Teresa’s costars have turned against her all has to do with jealousy and the resentment of her success! And definitely not at all with her taking shots at them in her cookbooks or talking smack about them in her blogs!

The shocking magazine cover reads: “Jacqueline skips reunion after a “mental breakdown”, Melissa caught confessing she married for money; Caroline’s shocking financial mess.” So let’s examine each claim shall we!

Jacqueline’s Finances & “Mental Breakdown” - An “insider” close to Teresa tells In Touch that the real reason Jacqueline Laurita skipped the reunion had more to do with greed and jealousy rather than that whole Porsche Fashion Show drama thingy. The mag states Jacqueline is “envious” of Teresa’s success as she is now suffering from her own financial troubles. “I’ve seen her husband Chris’ credit card declined numerous times,” the insider claims.

Another “source” says they suspect Jacqueline was the one who sold the now infamous photo of Joe Giudice dining with another woman (who has now been revealed as Davana Medina) to the press. Jacqueline has always denied this and below, Kim G. takes credit for leaking the pic. As for Jacqueline’s recent twitter rants, one of which included calling Teresa “scum,” the source claims she suffered a mental breakdown. “She went a little crazy,” says the source. “She lost it.”

Caroline Manzo’s “Financial Mess” – The same “insider” tells the mag Caroline Manzo is in a big financial mess and also experiencing money troubles of her own. “She and her husband have big credit problems, and they’ve mortgaged the hell out of The Brownstone,” their family banquet hall, claims the insider. Caroline is also reportedly very jealous of Teresa’s success as the insider claims it’s always been Caroline’s dream to have her own cookbook and make more money. Err didn’t Teresa say the same exact thing in her blog last week??? “It’s got to be hard watching Teresa, whom she hates, do just that,” states the mag.

Melissa Gorga “Married Joe For Money” – Tre also refuses to let go of her claims that her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga is a gold-digger! Teresa managed to get in some shots against Melissa as she once again publicly states Melissa married her brother Joe Gorga for his money. “We were out to dinner with a few other couples,” Teresa tells In Touch of the incident that took place early on in Melissa and Joe’s marriage. “She got a little buzzed, and she said she didn’t like him when she first met him. ‘But then,’ she says, ‘I saw his house.’”

You can read more of this story in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.

Immediately following the release of In Touch magazine yesterday, Jacqueline took to her twitter to fire back at Teresa’s the magazine’s claims. Jacqueline not only believes Teresa is behind the In Touch cover story but also stated that Teresa is planning to file another bankruptcy at a later date. Ai ya ya!

Jacqueline tweeted, “Another disgusting display of Teresas lies. Keep hanging yourself!Tell every1 the plan2file4bankruptcy#2@how u laugh At beating the system!”

She later added: “Teresa,keep spending all the money u do &making profit from people/ fake stories u sell.It will catch up to u.U never stopped spending.” A screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets are below.

Meanwhile, the one and only troublemaker Kim Granatell has now taken credit for leaking out the Joe Giudice picture to the press. Kim G. tweeted yesterday: “InTouch Mag. Teresa’s husband and his latest GF. Thanks to Tom Murro and myself for having those photos! Jacqueline nothing to do with them.”

And finally, the Huffington Post is also reporting that Teresa is maybe in talks to get her own cooking show! Sources tell the site that once she finishes shooting the Celebrity Apprentice, she is off to film her own cooking show. Oddly enough the blog states that details of Tre’s cooking show are “scarce” pointing out that there’s a big difference between shooting a new show and having a successful program make it on TV.

“If all goes [according] to plan, Teresa will be on TV from January to May in ‘The Apprentice,’ May to October with ‘RHONJ’ season four and then with her own show focusing on real Italian food,” reveals an insider. Teresa using ingredientses such as ‘cummin’ on her own cooking show? Must.see.TV!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey drama rages on!

As filming wraps up on the 4th season of the hit show, the latest is a report that Teresa Giudice is actually considering walking away from the show that made her infamous!

Teresa tells In Touch Weekly that she “didn’t sign up” for all the drama. Err you kinda did Tre! “I signed up to be with my friends, hanging out, having fun. I didn’t sign on to have my family and friends trashing me,” says Teresa who managed to slam her costar Caroline Manzo in her latest cookbook.

When asked to explain why she felt the need to refer to Caroline, 50, as being only 1/16th Italian in her Fabulicious cookbook, Teresa snipes: “It was such a nothing thing to get upset over.” She adds, “It’s sad that Caroline is trying to attack my livelihood.”

As for Teresa possibly leaving the show after season 4, a source tells that mag that Bravo is loving every minute of the drama…of course and does NOT want to lose their biggest troublemaker star! “They don’t want to lose Teresa as they feel she is their biggest asset. She is ratings gold,” reveals an insider.

Ratings gold indeed as part 1 of the RHONJ reunion got the highest ratings of the season. Over 3.4 millions viewers tuned in to see the highly promoted Caroline/Teresa showdown on Sunday night!

In other Tre news, her husband Joe Giudice’s mystery date is now speaking out. If you recall, Reality Tea confirmed last week that divorced female body builder Davana Medina was indeed the lady who was snapped dining with Joe, sans Teresa, a few weeks ago.

Davana, 37, is now breaking her silence as she tells Star Magazine there is no funny business going on between her and Joe. “We were old friends having fun,” Davana tells Star. “I’ve known Joe and Teresa since I was little.”

And while Teresa has claimed she was aware Joe was out with Davana whom she called a “family friend,” Davana tells a different story when she admits Teresa wasn’t happy about the dinner date.

“I think she’s upset because it makes her look like a jerk,” explains Davana. “But I don’t need to apologize for anything.” Davana’s comments falls in line with what a source told us about the situation, which was that Teresa was a “mess” over the Joe cheating rumors. Our source also insisted that while Davana and Joe go way back, she is NOT a family friend.

Other sources also tell Star that Teresa might have good reason to be upset. “Davana and Joe had a past together, and who knows what’s going on now?” says a source. “Teresa had better watch her back.”

Moving on to Dina Manzo, who continues to remain in the headlines after her sister Caroline finally admitted their relationship is indeed strained. After getting backlash from fans who felt she took Teresa’s side, Dina is once again defending herself.

“Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister,” Dina revealed to UsWeekly. “I had no idea of their discord until very recently.” She added: “I am at a very good place in my life with my foundation, Project Ladybug, helping so many children with cancer and my new show Dina’s Party on HGTV.”

When it comes to the state of her relationship with Caroline, Dina stated, “I’m sure in time [it] will mend itself. To quote a favorite saying of mine, ‘This too shall pass.’”

Allrighty. So we have to ask -

Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!

First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did The Caroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!

*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

More exclusive Real Housewives of New Jersey news to report today!

As we reported days ago, Caroline Manzo finally admitted there is indeed a rift between her and sister Dina Manzo in a preview clip for the show’s reunion. Even worse, Caroline blamed Teresa Giudice for straining her relationship with Dina.

But what’s even more surprising is the fact that Dina continues to be BFF with Caroline’s new enemy Teresa while shunning her own sister.

And today, we now have exclusive details on the real deal when it comes to Dina and Tre’s friendship. According to our RHONJ insider, the friendship between Dina and Teresa is pretty much fake as the only time the two hang out together is when there are cameras around. Our source states the two are simply using each other for different reasons — more so Dina than Teresa.

“Dina’s Party (Dina’s HGTV show) isn’t getting such rave reviews. It sure isn’t a hit show. So, she is desperate to stay relevant. Teresa was seen filming with her. That is why they remain friends,” says the insider. “Dina who claims she hates all the BS hangs out with the biggest trouble maker of all. But, Dina is no dummy. She does it to stay on the map. Dina also uses Teresa to make appearances because she knows she gets a larger crowd at her Ladybug events.”

“Teresa and Dina’s friendship was totally played up for the show. They never see each other. The only time they do is when they are using each other for business,” reveals our source adding that Dina “knows Teresa is a trouble maker and doesn’t agree with what she does.”

As for what caused the rift between Dina and Caroline, our source states it all started when Caroline refused to quit the RHONJ. “Caroline and Dina have had a strained relationship since Dina left the show. When Dina left she wanted Caroline to leave as well. It really is a mess. This show has screwed up so many relationships.”

Our source also insists Dina left the show not so much because of Danielle Staub but because of her husband Tommy Manzo — who never appeared on camera. “Dina’s husband Tommy told Dina she HAD to leave the show. She had no choice in the matter.”

The insider adds that Dina is “NOT happy” that Teresa revealed her feud with Caroline on the reunion show. However, “Dina won’t dare stay mad at Teresa since she hopes she chooses Project Ladybug as her charity on Celebrity Apprentice. It is one big circle of using people.”

Indeed, Teresa began filming Celebrity Apprentice a few days ago. No word yet on whether or not she chose Dina’s Project Ladybug as her charity.

As for Dina, she started receiving some backlash from RHONJ fans who feel she is taking Teresa’s side over her sister Caroline’s. She then took to twitter to defend herself.

“Eww getting some MEAN tweets. I didn’t take sides, don’t assume~didn’t even know they were not getting along until recently~I’m not involved,” tweeted Dina.

She later added: “If I get one more tweet about this I may scream. TERESA HAD NO IMPACT ON MY RELATIONSHIP WITH ANYONE. Give it a rest tweeple it’s annoying.”

While Dina and Teresa are phony BFFs, it’s still incredibly hard to believe she had no idea Teresa and Caroline were feuding as they have been for a while now. Sounds like she is using that to excuse her choice to continue to hang around Teresa (not that she needs to to end her friendship with Teresa over Caroline). The two were pictured above recently during Teresa launch party for her Fabellini wine on October 7th. Our insider tells us Dina was only at the party for about an hour.

Moving on to tonight’s RHONJ reunion part 1 in what Bravo promises is the most explosive RHONJ reunion yet! It airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below!


Bringing you an all new Real Housewives of New Jersey photo post today!

Missing in action was Jacqueline Laurita who has also been absent from recent publicity events and interviews for the show. No word yet on whether this is Bravo’s doing due to Jacqueline skipping the reunion, or perhaps it’s Jacqueline’s choice to skip these events. Either way, more photos of the cast below!

Also below Teresa Giudice hosted a birthday party for her daughters Audriana and Gabriella Giudice at Space Odyssey on October 9, 2011 in Englewood, New Jersey. Gabriella was celebrating her 7th birthday while Audriana turned 2! Those photos are also below!

More Real Housewives of New Jersey drama to report today!

The latest is Caroline Manzo is finally speaking out against her former friend and costar Teresa Giudice. Following Sunday night’s finale which revealed the growing rift between the two ladies, The Caroline is not mincing her words when it comes to Tre! The drama began when Teresa insulted Caroline by stating she is “as Italian as the Olive Garden,” and then to add insult to injury, she also took a shot at Caroline’s son Christopher Manzo in her cookbook.

In an interview with Life & Style magazine, Caroline, 50, states fame has changed Teresa, 39. “I’m done with her,” Caroline states. “We’re housewives, nothing more,” Caroline asserts. “But she believes she’s Angelina Jolie or something!”

“She’s a bully,” Caroline adds. “She crossed the line in so many ways in trying to maintain this image that she has, that there were no boundaries.”

Oh but there’s more! In a separate interview with The Insider, Caroline accuses Teresa of playing the victim. “You don’t have the right to play the victim when you’re the one doing all the hitting,” said Caroline. “Everybody here wants to hug… Everybody loves each other here, it’s all love.”

Teresa apparently sees herself as the victim as she blogged last week: ” The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends.”

Caroline, who had remained loyal to Teresa on the show, almost to a fault, then goes on to admit she even mistreated Teresa’s sworn enemies family members Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile based on what Teresa had told her about them.

“I was awful to them, awful to them. [Kathy] came to my house, this poor thing — her angel wings are underneath the dress, you don’t see them — and I abused her. Because I had a preconceived notion about who they were, and it was so far from the truth,” said Caroline.

Caroline finishes the interview stating: “Why should I feel sorry for somebody that walks away from people that want to help her, that walks away from love and tries to hurt?”

A former friend of Teresa’s tells Life & Style: “She is just not the same person. When filming began on the show, she seemed so sweet but now she doesn’t seem to care about the people around her.”

Our RHONJ insider told us Teresa is now friendless as evident by the fact that none of her RHONJ castmates attended her recent party to launch her Fabellini wine with the exception of Dina Manzo.

And speaking of Dina, Caroline is finally confirming what we reported a while back. Back in June, we broke the news that Caroline and her sister Dina were no longer on speaking terms. A source confirmed the story to us back then in addition to the fact that the two sisters stopped following each other on twitter.

Back then Caroline denied the feud, perhaps wanting to protect her family, but in a new preview clip for the upcoming reunion, she finally comes clean. In fact she blames Teresa for straining her relationship with Dina.

In the clip below, Teresa says to Caroline, “No wonder why Dina doesn’t want to talk to you! Like, what happened to you?” Caroline responds: “I lost a lot of my relationship with her.” Andy Cohen then asks, “With Dina?” Caroline states, “Yeah.” Andy asks over what, and Caroline right at Teresa and says, “I’m looking at you.” Whoa!

Part 1 of the reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo at 10/9c.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CAROLINE’S COMMENTS? DO YOU AGREE THAT TERESA IS A BULLY AND PLAYING VICTIM? THOUGHTS ON CAROLINE NOT TALKING TO DINA & BLAMING TERESA?

Teresa Giudice says to Caroline, “No wonder why Dina doesn’t want to talk to you! Like, what happened to you?” Caroline says, “I lost a lot of my relationship with her.” Andy asks, “With Dina?” Caroline says, “Yeah,” and when Andy asks over what, Caroline looks to Teresa and says, “I’m looking at you.”

Weeks after Joe Giudice was photographed having an intimate dinner with a mystery woman, Reality Tea can now reveal the identity of the woman!

While Teresa Giudice was busy stirring up drama attending the Posche Fashion Show on September 27, Joe, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was photographed having dinner at a local TGI Fridays with a mystery brunette. RadarOnline was the first to publish the photo.

Well our RHONJ insider is now alleging to us that the mystery lady is Davana Medina, a divorced 37-year-old professional female body builder. And while Teresa came out stating the lady photographed with Joe was simply a family friend, the insider tells Reality Tea that is not the case.

The insider alleges that Davana used to date Joe’s brother Pete Giudice way way back in the day. “She used to “hook up” with Pete Giudice when they were younger. They have known each other a long time,” says the source. “But she sure is not a “family” friend as Teresa stated. [Teresa] had no idea he was going out with her that night. It is rumored that they have been seeing each other for years.”

The same insider revealed last week that Teresa was “a mess” and very “upset” over the Joe cheating allegations, adding that she “has accused him of infidelity many times over the years.”

A different source tells Life & Style magazine: “Joe actually used to date Davana’s sister before he married Teresa,” reveals a former friend of Davana’s. “But Joe was very close to Davana, as well. He’s been at her house many times, late at night.” Yikes.

As for Teresa, she stated in a recent interview that she would leave Joe if he cheated on her. More photos of Davana below.

In other RHONJ news, Teresa is firing back at costar Caroline Manzo following Sunday night’s dramatic season 3 finale! In a blog posted on her website, Teresa claims the comments she made about Caroline in her Fabulicious book ware simply jokes (Isn’t it funny how she never does anything wrong?) and also goes on to accuse Caroline of being jealous of her cookbook success. Below are excerpts from Tre’s blog -

“I remember when I was writing my very first book proposal, Caroline was also trying to sell her own cookbook (and 5 other Housewives were too!). Caroline told me I was doing it wrong, that I wasn’t smart enough, that I didn’t have the right agent, the right co-writer, the right anything. I took her criticism like I always do, with a smile, and did what I wanted to anyway. And my book got picked up. Caroline’s didn’t. Not one publisher wanted it. I don’t know why. I wish everyone success in all they do, but I can’t help it hers didn’t get published. “

“What I wrote about the Manzos in Fabulicious! was the same thing: a joke. And not even a mean joke, a repeated joke that was made up for a fake feud on the “Rachel Ray” show…. To be honest, I don’t think Caroline is really upset. I think she’s trying to make up a reason to be mad at me and she doesn’t have anything else because I’ve never done anything to her or her family…”

Below is the excerpt from Teresa’s book that set Caroline off. Not quite seeing the humor in it…

Unlike some of the other “Housewives,” I do not condone young girls stripping to bring in business to a car wash, old ladies in hot pants climbing up on a pole to bring their sexy back, or videotaping yourself in any state of undress at any time.”

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JOE’S CHEATING? ARE YOU BUYING TRE’S CLAIMS THAT HER COMMENTS WERE A JOKE? DO YOU THINK CAROLINE IS JEALOUS OF HER SUCCESS?
