I thought Jacqueline was fun, spunky – a littly kooky and off-kilter – but she seemed to be able to laugh at herself and enjoy life. I remember in season two when everyone was on the on the Italian cruise, Jacqueline and Teresa Giudice (then best friends) were riding the elevator and she playfully rubbed her butt against the door. I thought it was unfiltered, silly and in short real – even though a lot of viewers found her behavior immature. Maybe Jacqueline is immature – maybe she was all along. But still, she had fun. She lived life her life on TV without pretensions. It was refreshing.
Jersey has been a franchise marred by serious infighting, drama, and negativity since the beginning. Danielle Staub was the original brunt of controversy and hatred. Did she deserve it? In part… Did it make good TV? For the most part. With Danielle leaving, tides have turned – and they've turned like a whirlpool drowning the entire cast in murky water. Jacqueline seems to have descended to the deepest depths.
If I had a dollar for every time I wrote the name Teresa Giudice, I could bail her out of bankruptcy debt. Not that I would, but I would think about it because Lord knows her antics are paying my bills so maybe I owe her. Sheesh this stuff happens so fast, we just don't even want to keep up!
Anyway, days after releasing an interview with In Touch Weekly announcing that she needs help and is taking a break from drama, Teresa has been all over the media defending herself and perpetuating drama. Some of that drama I have seen in person. And of course she is not alone. Helping her every step of the way are Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita. When desperate famewhores meet, the sane world explodes.
The Real Housewieves of New Jersey stars who really, really, and I mean REALLY need to step away from the computer, the TV, and the United States are making wild accusations left and right – from lawsuits, to harassing texts, to releasing so-called texts, to blaming each other for the collapse of the economy and last year's Swine Flu outbreak. So let's break this latest shenanigan down.
After Melissaaccused Teresa of assaulting her while she was holding her infant nephew at Gia's birthday party, Teresa has been telling any publication that will listen that she didn't touch Melis. She tells the Huffington Post: “I usually don't comment on stories about me, but I cannot ignore Melissa Marco's vicious lie that I assaulted her at my own children’s birthday party while she was holding my baby nephew. It is completely untrue in every way. To make such a horrible accusation that involves our children is beyond despicable and speaks to her true character."
Wonder why she's suddenly calling Melissa by her maiden name?
Teresa agreed to give it another go, but it doesn't appear that today was any "lighter" than yesterday. We have a peek at the do-over interview below! Check it out and tell us your thoughts in the comments!
Hey y'all! It's time for your daily Teresa Giudice round-up! So in today's exhaustive report we'll discuss how Teresa is possibly getting a spinoff, how she never yanked Melissa Gorga's arm at a children's birthday party, and how she had a breakdown following the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. We've also got some EXCLUSIVES from our source on Teresa's possible spinoff and her brother-in-law, who seems like quite the scandalmonger.
Oh – and Jacqueline Laurita is all on the tweeter again (I swear she's the internet's number one twit) responding to Teresa'saccusations on Anderson Live yesterday. If you recall, Teresa accused Jacqueline of sending her harassing texts and mentioned she wanted to go to the cops because it gave her chills. Well if Teresa can go to the cops, Jacqueline can too! So HA!
First, let me apologize for SO MANY Real Housewives of New Jersey posts this week! Hot on the heels of the season finale and because of the frenzy surrounding the upcoming reunion shows, they are EVERYWHERE in the media right now!
Well, we now know why Rich Wakile was spotted mulling around the courthouse in his beach couture recently! It seems that the Real Househusband of New Jersey is not only hoping to get free clothes, but he thinks he's so famous he should get free landscaping, to boot!
Rich was ordered to pay an outstanding bill owed to Natural Paradise Landscaping this week by a judge in the Passaic County court. The owner of the company chatted with Radar Online and shared some pretty outlandish conversations he had with Richie while he was attempting to collect the debt.
Ok – so this morning I made a trip down to Anderson Live where I was the guest live-blogger of the day. Which is awesome. Kellie Pickler, who is cute as a button and sweet as tea, was the co-host with Anderson. She could not be more adorable, more gracious, or more kind to the fans.
Kellie spent every break walking around the audience engaging with people, talking about life, and just being awesome. I snagged a super secret photo of her being sweet and that is below. Shhh…don't tell Anderson's producers. #instagram
Also, Kellie is itty-bitty in real-life and she proudly displayed her newly shaved head, which looks fantastic (and she does have a perfectly round head). She seems 100% genuine and down-to-earth. Unlike some of Anderson's reality star guests who I'll get to in a minute.
So, now for the news you've all been waiting for: Teresa Giudice! As you know she was the other guest. And since Real Housewives of New Jersey has dominated my life for what has now been the last six months I was super SUPER excited to meet the lady, the myth, the legend in the flesh.
Can I just say, I'm watching Anderson Live, and that interview certainly didn't go as Teresa Giudice planned. If looks could kill, Kellie Pickler would be performing CPR on poor Anderson Cooper right now. Wow. It's not Teresa's morning, and unfortunately for her, I have some more bad press for her, courtesy of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. These women of Real Housewives of New Jersey love to give an interview, don't they? I really can't believe they don't get along seeing as how much they have in common.
In light of stripper-gate, Melissa is making sure we remember just how mean Teresa is (we get it, we get it!). This time around she's talking about the "roughing up" that happened at poor G-to-the-IA Giudice's birthday party. I mean, these poor, poor kids. Shame on these ladies!
