I'd like to think that reality stars learn from the mistakes of their peers, but then I remember that they are reality stars. They aren't revered for their brains, but rather for how dramatic their lives are at any given time. Hey, I'm just jealous!
Watching all of the financial strife (to put it mildly) of her family members/co-stars hasn't deterred the maybe recently demotedKathy Wakile from pursuing her dream home. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is hoping that her dessert making skills will be the perfect foundation for a brand new custom home. Sweet dreams, for sure!
This weekend is a busy one for Bravolebrities! So many events going on – like Lauren Manzo's engagement party!
Lauren Manzo and Vito Scalia gathered their friends and family at the Brownstone to celebrate their engagement tonight! A few of the photos from the evening made their way to Instagram via Jacqueline Laurita and others and it looks like it was a good night – and a drama-free night! So rare for a Bravo event, right?
Among those in attendance to celebrate the upcoming marriage (which may be filmed for their spinoff show): Melissa and Joe Gorga, Jacs and Chris Laurita, Kathy and Rich Wakile and of course the proud parents – Caroline and Albert Manzo. Caroline was even caught on camera dancing with her future son-in-law's father. Since the show finished filming its first season already, I wonder if it was filmed for possible use in a second season?
It doesn't look like Dina or Teresa scored an invite…..
The Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice is no stranger to the Twitter rumor mill. And she gives it plenty to work with. Whether she is flipping tables, fighting with her brother or questioning her husband's loyalty, Teresa has always let Bravo's cameras roll to show the good, the bad and the ugly. (Remember when she was called the c-word by her husband at the vineyard??)
This time the Twitterverse is questioning how the mother of four told her daughters about her legal issues. My question is, did she really need to tell them? Do they have access to the internet? I think you may live under a rock if you have not heard she and her husband are facing jail time.
Following the event, Melissa Gorga tweeted many thanks to those who helped make the event a success, including a shout out to DJ Pauly D. "@DJPaulyD thank you for being so generous with your time and donating a meet & greet to Project Ladybug!! Much appreciated!"
Awww. Proof that their marriage is better than ever? Or just Teresa's way of saying "no divorce to see here, b****es!"? Honestly, I think these two are probably clinging to each other more than ever with all that's going on.
TELL US – IS JOE YOUR MCM? ANY OF THE HOUSEHUSBANDS?
Dear New Jersey residents, don't bother checking your mailboxes today because it's a state holiday, otherwise known asMelissa Gorga's birthday!
Today we take a break from busting her balls and joking about renting Chanel (you're welcome for that little side-storyline, though!) and take a look at the Real Housewives of New Jersey star's past year in photos as she celebrates her big day.
Proving that no job is too corny for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star, she just released a new commercial for her Fabellini wine. Teresa has been doing bottle signings all over and really selling the product.
"Sexy. Sophisticated." (Two words that totally come to mind when I think of Teresa!) "We invite you to fall in love," says Teresa as she smizes her heart out. Well, hopefully it'll work. Reality Tea has tried it – and we were not swept away by the sexy sophisticatedness. Nor did we fall in love.
