If you live in the Garden State, spend far above your means, and at least eighty percent of your wardrobe contains sequins and/or faux fur, you could possibly be a Real Housewife of New Jersey. If you're racing your former friends and family members to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List, you are on Bravo's short list for sure!
Depending on what floats your boat, there's a book penned by a RHONJ star that is just right for you. Do you like sampling new Fabulicious recipes? I think we all know that Teresa Giudice has you covered. Is party planning one of your hobbies? Pick up a copy of Dina Manzo's new book. Is TMI in the bedroom the kind of juicy gossip you crave? Look no further than Melissa Gorga to dish on her relationship with Poison! And, of course, if you want straight talk, Caroline Manzo is going to tell it like it is in her new tome. It looks like this Bravo franchise has the book market cornered!
Joe and Melissa Gorga took their family to see the circus this weekend and it made an impression on Melis. She joked on Twitter, "I'm quitting reality and joining the circus;.) @bravoandy pls note;.)."
It wouldn't be much of a career change - RHONJ is definitely a three-ring circus most days: sequin covered costumes, death-defying acts (often featuring your family members), clowns, traveling with wild animals and more!
If there's one lesson reality stars never seem to learn, it's "don't throw stones from your glass house", especially when said house could go into foreclosure at any moment. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita may be regretting all the shade she threw at Teresa Giudice about not paying her bills because it looks like Jacqs is facing more financial hot water herself.
First, there is the pesky business bankruptcy that is ongoing, which Jacqs reportedly has/had to testify for. Then there was the revelation this week that she owes the state of New Jersey more than $300,000 in back taxes. It seems that 2013 is continuing to be a rough year for Jacs, as her home is now in pre-foreclosure, reportedly.
According to Zillow (screen shots below), Jacqueline is in pre-foreclosure on her own Franklin Lakes McMansion. The Lauritas were allegedly served papers by their bank for being in default on their $1.8 million home loan.
Juicy and Tre and their four daughters posed for some under water shots while they were vacationing at the Majestic Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We were only able to procure two of these nautical gems for you, but trust us, it's enough to get the visual of what the rest of the shoot was like!
Teresa Giudice has apparently decided with all Joe Giudice's impending legal issues, she better hang onto the family she's got and she is "very confident" that her family will reconcile for good!
“Everything is good," Teresatells In Touch about her relationship with Melissa Gorga. We've heard this before! Teresa says she believes things will stay that way. "You have to let things go," she admits.
Just like Joe adamantly defended Melissa against stripper-gate, he is coming to her defense in the rumors that she had an affair.
“I don’t even know this guy,” Joeinsists to Life & Style. “People tried to bring this up two years ago; they tried to put this bulls–t out there. All I have to say is, ‘Ha, ha, ha.’”
“There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations…but I love my wife,” Joe shares. "The poor girl keeps getting all this abuse for no reason. They find a good mom with a good image, and it's like, ‘How can we take her down?’”
