Tonight the Real Housewives Of New Jersey season 6 reunion kicks off. Teresa Giudice is wearing her finest solid gold Christmas pageant couture to harken back to happier times of reunions when she was just feuding with friends and family instead of heading off to prison! At least Teresa is going out with a bang in designer Christmas Pageant couture, that is!
Tonight Dina Manzo will open up about her family drama and Teresa will storm off set in a huff. Which is all fun and everything, but I just want to know who is wearing what and if it came from Posche.
Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo has never been one to mince words. In her five years starring on the show, she was often the voice of reason to her castmates, no matter what the consequences — good or bad — may have been.
Well, now as she gets ready to wrap the first season of Manzo’d With Children, Caroline is opening up about her former costars and what the future may hold for her new show and her family.
Bethenny‘s currently in the middle of a press tour for her books, Cookie Meets Peanut and Skinnygirl Cocktails, so now she’s promoting the books AND she’s talking about the ratings challenged show. As they say, timing is everything.
In a recent interview with Extra, Bethenny talked about her decision to return to Real Housewives of New York, her personal life, and her reaction to Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice‘s prison sentence.
This week on Manzo’d With Children we saw something very rare — one of the Manzo children made a major decision without consulting mama Caroline Manzo. Normally, you would think — “Well, it’s about time, these kids are adults!”
But the problem this time was not that Lauren Manzo did not consult her mother before she made major renovations to her business — including construction and a name change. The problem was that she did not consult her business partner and investor, who just also happens to be her mother.
I guess when you’re sentenced to the clink, anyone and everyone who has ever spent time in prison is raring to provide their two cents. Teresa Giudice certainly has people coming out of the woodwork to give her advice as to how to spend her time in the big house, but I was certainly surprised to hear the latest person chime in on the Real Housewives of New Jersey star’s fate!
There is no shortage of celebrities and prominent figures who have spent time behind bars, but who knew the Reverend Al Sharpton would be weighing in on Tre’s upcoming incarceration? Preach!
Discussing DICKtionaryGate between Kathy and Teresa, Dina admits she initially thought Teresa was being ridiculous and should just accept Kathy’s apology. But now that Dina knows Kathy a little better… and has seen how Kathy is behaving with Jacqueline Laurita (i.e. using each other for camera time and filming reactions Teresa’s sentencing), Dina has changed her mind. Now she seems to imply that Kathy is manipulative and scheming just like everyone else on RHONJ!
On this episode of Manzo’d With Children, it looks like a typical summer day in the Manzo household with Albie and Christopher practicing their chip shot in the backyard and Lauren moping around them. Caroline decides to drop the bomb that they are heading to good ole Austin Texas next week to do some research on BBQ sauce. It’s the last family vacay before Lauren gets married and Caroline wants to make sure her bbq sauce is competitive with other brands out there before it hits the shelves. The whole family is on board and this should be fun!
As they’re packing their stuff up, we learn Albie and Christopher’s dog died last Christmas and the last memory they have is of him peeing on their luggage. Gross. Across the hallway, Lauren is packing stilettos and might want to throw in some gym shoes because you know, Texas has dirt. Good God. Christopher is eager to get to Texas and experience some authentic Texas goodies (gun fights, big hair, etc.). While I appreciate their stabs at humor, it’s just very Paris Hilton/Nicole Richie-esque and not funny at all. Meanwhile, we learn Abie is now not eating meat and it’s apparently huge drama as Texas might not have any white meat for him. Oiy!
