Interesting, because Bravo has been promoting Christopher and Albie's latest project (Little Big Town) pretty heavily on RHONJ. Caroline has also pretty much moved out of Franklin Lakes and relocated to Hoboken near her boys. Caroline's storyline this season has been recapturing the love with Al whose unfaithfulness has been hinted at several times. I imagine the true subject of the spinoff would be starting over with the boys building a new family business and Caroline staying in the role of the matriarch.
Yesterday night Melissa Gorga was on WWHL. There she was cross-examined about the myriad of rumors that are her life. They don't call it six degrees of Melissa Gorga for nothing!
Among the allegations Melissa has been hit with on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a cheating scandal concerning her ex-boyfriend Bryan. A few episodes back Melissa's former BFFL Jan met up with Kim D where she dropped a salacious bomb about what Melissa was doing early in her marriage to Poison. Here's a hint: she wasn't doing Poison!
Melissa denied it of course, and blamed Teresa Giudice for spreading rumors. Last night she denied it again and accused Jan of being after camera time. Aren't they all!
Our source chimed in to allege that Melissa is telling tall tales and Teresa is definitely not out to get her!

Last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was about reinventing the old and making it new again. Make new frienemies, but keep the old… one is faux marble and the other is faux leopard!
Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita made up and by that I mean they vowed not to appear at anymore reunions wearing dresses where the sequins turned into poison darts and and scream cheating accusations at each other's husbands. So by making amends they decided to keep each other's secrets…
Oh and Jacqueline shed her old stripper skin in favor of some new skin that didn't have washed up tacky tattoos on it. When did getting plastic surgery become a requisite Housewives storyline?
Things begin with Teresa and Jacqueline continuing with their "tawk". Jacqueline is clearly flustered because she forgot her translucent powder and her blotting papers. Girl was shiny as a gold lame and her hair was all mussed. Maybe she and Teresa had some sort of knock-down, drag-out, rolling on the table brawl and the footage was accidentally damaged when some Fabellini got tossed on it and that's why we didn't see it? That would explain Jacq's shininess…
Melissa Gorga hasn't commented onTeresa Giudice's indictment situation, but tonight on WWHL she declared that she's got Teresa's back and that the kids are the #1 priority. Melissa also claimed that no one believes the cheating allegations Jan is accusing her of next week, so she doesn't want to give it attention.
Melissa on the Real Housewives of New Jersey family retreat: "It was so stressful. we went from rock bottom to hugging it out to drinking. I was so relieved that it was better. I feel like we are better together and I fee like everyone likes to see us together anyway. It's just more fun. It's better, it's easy. We have a lot in common, as much as we don't have in common, we have stuff in common as well. We just have a good time together."
With the Gorgadice families on the mend, the Gorgas and the Giudices strive to spend quality time together by taking a bus trip. HA! Unfortunately little pitchers have big ears and even less filters!
In other news, Teresa and Jacqueline Laurita continue to struggle with their relationship as Teresa confronts Jacqueline. Teresa also hosts a charity event. And finally, some of Jacqueline's decisions raise some eyebrows with Chris!
Teresa Giudice is in a hailstorm of trouble. If she thought strippergate was something to get worked up over, she hasn't seen anything like going to trial against the federal government. No amount of body glitter can save a girl now! #OrangeIsTheNewLeopard.
While I fully intend Kim D, Teresa's eternally supportive BIFFL, to make her some Posche-appropriate prison garb and stage a Big House fashion show, Teresa is still hedging bets that she'll avoid jail time.
Right now Teresa and Joe Giudice are developing a legal strategy that seems to focus on Juicy serving jail time while the Real Housewives of New Jersey star plays the innocent, doting wife who was a victim of his schemes.
So in case you haven't heard, Joe Giudice was charged with like 3 zillion money fraud related indictments. Which is about how much money he also owes because of bankruptcy debts related to falsifying income. And when he's done there he owes the IRS big too. Long story short, homeboy is in biiig trouble!
Among the revelations that emerged about the Real Housewives of New Jersey star during the court proceedings was that, despite being married to Teresa Giudice for like 15 years, Joe never bothered to become a U.S. citizen. Which means he's still an Italian citizen, since he was born there. And since he's not a U.S. citizen, as a felon or a convicted offender he could be deported!
We've been wondering how likely it was that ol' Juicy could be shipped off to Italy and lucky us, we got the opportunity to speak to an immigration attorney who gave us some insight into how cases such as these generally work.
