Margaret lives in a $1.125 million dollar mansion with her contractor husband Joseph Benigno – but maybe not for long, because on December 15, 2017, Unity Bank filed a notice of foreclosure against the couple.

It seems like there is a new news story related to the Gorga’s Homemade Pizza & Pasta every day and none of them are good. First of all, Joe Gorga taking Melissa Gorga out to lunch and then “surprising” her with the “news” that he bought that restaurant just seemed way too contrived.
Come to find out, Joe, Melissa, and Teresa Giudice didn’t even completely own the restaurant, which isn’t super shocking. They slapped their name on an existing restaurant in a “rebrand”
for the perfect story line. Now they want their former business partners to drop the Gorga name from the restaurant and they have sent a cease-and-desist letter.
Here we are at the finish line of a cuckoo season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. In the spirit of Real Housewives Reunions past and present, we must pay homage to all of the fights, cake throws, and anti-Semitic slander that went down. Since we’ve already lived through it once, why not do it all over again? Warning: There are split screen throw downs and Release the gimp! moments in store (i.e., Kim D makes an appearance). It’s GO time!
First things first, the attire. Melissa Gorga, in my opinion, wins best in show for this reunion because she went for cocktail chic instead of junior prom night
circa 1995. Controversial opinion: Margaret Josephs comes in second, if only because that shade of green is perfection on her, and I’m loving the noticeable absence of pigtails. Teresa Giudice is looking very…Teresa, which is pretty damn good for someone who struggles valiantly against the gravity of her hairline. Meanwhile, Danielle Staub, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania bring up the caboose of this fashion(ish) show with fullly engorged bubbies On Display! On Display! On Display! in more bronzer than the smush-room of the Jersey Shore house ever saw. Let’s hope these couches get a good dry cleaning after this sh*t goes down.
The first two Real Housewives of New Jersey seasons were nothing short of iconic. Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub, Dina Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, and Caroline Manzo made up the perfect cast. Eventually RHONJ turned into the Teresa Giudice Show and Teresa turned against sisters-in-law Caroline and Jacqueline (and vice versa).
Now there is some chatter that Caroline and Jacqueline might return to Real Housewives of New Jersey.
After eight seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey, I wish that there was a spin-off series about Teresa Giudice and her four daughters. We have seen them all grow up so much throughout the years. Teresa even gave birth to her youngest daughter Audriana Giudice on the show. Real Housewives of New Jersey is essentially the Teresa Show anyway, so they might as well have an official show.
I just cannot get enough of Teresa’s family, especially the true star and funniest person of RHONJ: Teresa’s third daughter Milania Giudice. Teresa took Milania, Audriana, and a couple of their friends skiing in Mount Vernon, New Jersey.
There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice celebrated her oldest daughter Gia Giudice’s birthday with the rest of her family. Gia’s aunt Melissa Gorga also shared a photo with a sweet caption in honor of the big day. Margaret Josephs and her man Joe Benigno (the THIRD RHONJ husband named Joe) enjoyed a date night with friends. RHONJ alum Dina Manzo shared a selfie with her daughter Lexi.
In January 2015 one of Joe’s tenants slipped and fell on ice, fracturing his arm, at a “rental property that [Joe] owned under a business name,” explains Gerard Nisivoccia, an attorney for the plaintiff.
What do they think about Siggy Flicker leaving the show? Did Teresa actually get an apologize from Joe Giudice when she visited him in prison? Why did it take so long for Teresa to visit him? What is going on with their restaurant closing less than a year after it opened.
