Just in time for the holidays, Albert Manzo is getting a lawsuit in his stocking. Oopsie!
A waitress claims that Al and his brother Tommy Manzo (you know… Dina's hubby!) stiffed her of overtime pay plus called her and other co-workers "Spic bitches" along with other "racial, sexual, ethnic and country of origin epithets."
Lanise Jackson filed a suit against the former Real Housewives of New Jersey stars and Brownstone manager Robert Manger. Her lawsuit states she was employed there from October 2011 to April 2012 and then again from September to November 2013 when she was "constructively terminated as she could no longer endure the racial, sexual, ethnic and country of origin epithets hurled at her hourly."
When A-List and D-List worlds collide, I start to get a little woozy. In this case, I'm not sure if Jennifer Lawrence is paying someone a compliment or delivering some super-shade worthy of our best Housewives!
Jennifer admits that she found inspiration for her role in American Hustle in an unlikely source: the Real Housewives of New Jersey! Jennifer says her Joisee accent for the character Rosalyn Rosenfeld stemmed from watching too much Teresa Giudice!
Ashlee is participating in an upcoming lingerie photo shoot which she promises will be tasteful. "Tasteful" is usually the first word that comes to mind when I think of lingerie photo shoots…and Ashlee!
This week some of our favorite Bravolebrities gathered for WNBC's private Christmas tree lighting party in NYC and it seems that maybe love was in the air during this magical holiday event!
Our man about town Tom Murro was in attendance at the soiree and shared some tidbits on the get-together. "What can I say? It's a magical event in the greatest city in the world. Caroline Manzo, who's been to the party a few times before, really enjoyed the tree this year – and Al's arms too."
Aside from Caroline and Al, other Housewives in attendance includedAviva Drescher and husband Reid, along with Kathy Wakile's sister Rosie Pierri. Rosie was in great spirits and Tom reveals that she had a possible date with her, Ellen. Tom says Rosie's plus one was "sweet as could be." Rosie has been spotted with Ellen at a few events since October, so it's possible these are two dating, but trying to keep things quiet.
Well now that her mom is leaving Real Housewives of New Jersey (which by the way Ashlee confirmed on twitter a couple weeks ago that Jacqueline was leaving the show, then she quickly deleted the tweet), Ashlee announced she'll be resuming her "career" as a makeup artist.
But just cause she's growing up and getting a real live job, doesn't mean she's actually growing up. Ashlee announced on twitter tonight that she's afraid of flying and what's a girl gonna do to alleviate that fear? Why smuggle some wine onto an airplane, of course. Like mother, like daughter!
Well I know that hell hasn't frozen over because it's pushing eighty degrees here on the coast of South Cackalacki, but I don't have any other rational explanation for this reality news. Much like the Grinch, it appears that some ladies in the Garden State have hearts that are growing and growing. 'Tis the season, right?
Past, present, and future Real Housewives of New Jersey stars–and sisters–and technically still sisters-in-law (ya follow me?)–Caroline and Dina Manzo have reconciled after a long and anti-climactic feud. I know, I know. I can't believe it either!
Melissa said the decision to do the holiday solo wasn't an indicator of more problems with Teresa Giudice! "We honestly haven't spent Thanksgiving together. We try to do Easter and Christmas with them," Melissa told NY Daily News. "Joe and I usually go away for Thanksgiving or spend it with my family."
Melissa and Joe packed up the kiddos (aka Joey, Gino and Antonia) and headed off to Jamaica for the week. Melissa shared a few photos of their getaway on her Instagram account. With as cold and crummy as it was supposed to be in New Jersey this week, I don't blame her a bit. And hey, with downsizing their house back in September, they can maybe afford a little family vacay these days since they're renting a smaller place. For the record, this mysterious "house sale" still doesn't show up on the county records.
