For reasons I will never understand, everyone and their mother want to climb aboard the crazy train that is Real Housewives of New Jersey. When I say everyone, I mean anyone who has come into contact with any of the cast members in the last two decades. They all want to spill the beans and "take down" any number of the show's stars, most hoping for their own 15 minutes of Bravo notoriety. Former babysitters, ex boyfriends, grocery store clerks, hair stylists, first grade recess buddies, you name it!
Last week it wasMelissa Gorga'sex beau from a million moons ago, threatening to expose her (ON screen, of course!) and this week it's a former friend. We had sources crawling out of the woodwork this week – with several different versions of the same story, as seems to always be the case where our leading ladies, Melissa Gorga andTeresa Giudice, areconcerned, right?
If we've learned anything from the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it's that blood is thicker than water…unless, of course, one of your family members refuses to hate on the same person you despise or tries to write a better cookbook with family recipes. Then, all bets are off! Basically, blood is thicker than water until someone tries to show up your sketchy accomplishments. It's funny really. When someone in my family succeeds, my first instinct is to be proud and supportive. I clearly have a lot to learn from Teresa Giudice, et al.
While she's not necessarily the biggest cheerleader for some of her family counterparts, Teresa will always stand by her man. And, let's be honest, Juicy Joe needs her. His drivers license hangs in the balance. That's serious, y'all!
Rumor has it Joe and Teresa Giudice aren't as content with four kids as they once said!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars are reportedly thinking about trying for baby #5 so they can fulfill their dream of having a son – and already have his name picked out!
Teresa herself told InTouch's new issue, “Joe really wants a boy. And he said we should get a surrogate to carry it!”
A show "insider" also tells the magazine that Teresa had been against expanding their brood, but she's ready to cave because it's what Juicy so desperately wants. “He is really pressuring her. If that’s what he wants, she may just give in.”
There is apparently never a dull moment when you are a cast member of Real Housewives of New Jersey! And there seems to be no shortage of enemies and people from Melissa Gorga's past threatening to expose her at any moment. Is this how CIA agents feel, too?
The latest person claiming to have salacious details about Melissa's pre-Poison Gorga life is her ex-boyfriend "Bryan". Going by the twitter handle @bulldog_nj, he is coming out of the woodwork promising to drop an "atomic bomb" that will expose her lying and double-dealing to get on the show and make a name for herself.
For all of you hoping for a newer, classier, gentler Real Housewives of New Jersey, it ain't gonna happen! Apparently following last year's reunion and an off-season of being accused of things she didn't do, Teresa Giudice intends to make this season her act of vengeance!
Teresa has been watching V For Vendetta (or Days Of Our Lives) and practicing her wordsmithing so she can really go to battle against her family and former friends, who she believes have trashed her and dragged her through the mud unnecessarily.
“Teresa is not going to take any shit from her family members!" a source tells RadarOnline. "She felt like everyone ganged up on her last season and she has been dishing it out herself so far this season.” Oh god… I really do need to watch this show under the influence of sedatives, because I'm not sure I can take it.
Have any of you been missing Dina Manzo since she bid farewell to Real Housewives of New Jersey? Well, fear not, because she's back…and her name is now Alessandra DiGiacomo. That's right! Dina's an actress now, y'all!
I'm actually really excited about this news. Following in the footsteps of Real Housewives of Atlanta'sNeNe Leakes, Dina has landed a role on an upcoming scripted dramedy. The series, called Tainted Dreams, portrays the drama among soap opera actors behind-the-scenes of their daily stories (was my grandmother the only one who called soap operas her "stories"?). How very Melrose Place of Dina!
