Teresa Giudice’s Father Giacinto Gorga Is In The Hospital

It has been another tough year for the Giudice/Gorga family. Now Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga’s father Giacinto Gorga is in the hospital.

This is sad news for the family and fans of Real Housewives of New Jersey who have adored Giacinto throughout his years of appearances.

Danielle Staub Says Caroline Manzo Saw Her Friendship With Teresa Giudice “Coming All Along”

Even though Danielle Staub is all about maintaining the namaste with former sparring partner Teresa Giudice, she still has it out for her old enemies Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo, and Kim Granatell. It’s safe to say that she will not be doing yoga with those three women at any time soon.

Danielle made that very clear when she threw shade (and even some direct insults) at Jacqueline, Caroline, and Kim on Watch What Happens Live last night. Believe it or not, she just kept it old school with her beef and there was not one Dolores Catania dig the entire episode. She’s probably saving those up for the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taping.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap: Walking On Broken Glass

She’s managed to behave herself for long enough – now it’s time for Teresa Giudice to start breaking sh*t in restaurants again! This week on The Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Tre goes bananas when she hears Kim DePaola is spreading rumors about her rumored side piece. But her real issue is with Dolores Catania, who she claims didn’t defend her against the three-headed snake that is Kim D. While Siggy Flicker and Melissa Gorga come to a better place after a “healing” exercise about cake -(yesss! please let this be the frigging cake’s final gasp!) – Danielle Staub silently plans her next move against Dolores. As for Margaret Josephs? Well, she just continues to be kind of awesome.

We begin at Siggy’s hellish retreat, where she’s mimicking Margaret in a far inferior sketch than Marge just pulled off. No one is impressed. Furthermore, no one understands how this lame game is supposed to bring them closer together. Essentially, it’s like we’ve all died and gone to corporate retreat team building hell. But anyway, here we are. At least Siggy and Margaret get over the exercise fairly quickly, returning amicably to their spot on the wall of shame. But not so fast for Siggy! Get back in the ring, woman!

Margaret Josephs

This week in her blog entry, The Real Housewives of New Jersey newcomer Margaret Josephs gives us a look at her family’s ups and downs. She also weighs in on the ridiculous over-the-top behavior of Siggy Flicker, most specifically her trying to make the cake drama seem equal to Margaret’s family heartache. Same, right? #sarcasm

She starts off her blog talking about her complicated relationship with Margaret Sr. “Family is sometimes hard work, and it’s definitely always a work in progress. Life’s journey doesn’t come with a road map, and there are pitfalls at every turn that no one can plan for.”

Joe And Melissa Gorga Vacation With Their Family In Mexico- PHOTOS

Anyone who had one too many awkward conversations with relatives on Thanksgiving needs to take a cue from the Gorga family and just get away from it all. Melissa Gorga, her husband Joe Gorga, their three kids, and Joe’s father Giacinto Gorga all spent the holiday together at a resort in Mexico. That sounds like the ideal Thanksgiving to me: no cooking, no cleaning, no nonsense.

They lounged in the sun, coordinated outfits, fished on a boat, and it looks like they had a way more relaxing Thanksgiving than I’ve ever had in my whole life. Thanksgiving on the beach definitely seems like the ideal way to celebrate the holiday.

Check out the photos of Melissa, Joe, and the rest of the family,  enjoying their vacation in Mexico. And just in case anyone was wondering where Melissa’s vacation outfits are from- rest assured, there are  a lot of tags and shout outs for Melissa’s store Envy, which is shocking to no one.

Teresa Giudice & Dolores Catania Attend Charity Events For Families Affected By Cancer- Photos

This season of Real Housewives of New Jersey has brought Dolores Catania and Teresa Giudice’s friendship into question over and over again. After decades of friendship, these two have questioned each other’s loyalty in almost every episode. I mean, come on, Dolores’s tag line is “Look loyalty up in the dictionary and you’ll find my face.” Clearly it’s a focal point of the season- or at least Dolores’ story line.

That’s why it’s a little surprising to see the two of them hanging out and having a blast these days. Well, it’s really not that shocking since these two do go way back and they did get together to support a great charity, so it really does make sense. Plus, anyone who follows these two on social media in between episodes can see that they really are cool these days and that the drama on the show was filmed many months ago.

Danielle Staub’s Ex Fiancé Is Suing Her & Kim Granatell Is Paying His Court Fees; Kim Says Danielle Is Using Teresa Giudice & That She Lied About Current Fiancé On Watch What Happens Live

No one stirs shit up on Real Housewives of New Jersey quite like women named Kim. Blast from the past Kim Granatell aka Kim G still has some major beef with Danielle Staub and she’s doing the most to make sure that justice is served.

Kim is even paying for Danielle’s ex-fiancé Joe Masalta’s court fees so he can sue Danielle after she allegedly ditched a charity event and pocketed the appearance fee.

Instagram Roundup

There is just so much to be grateful for this Thanksgiving. Obviously, health and happiness are high up on the list, but somewhere after the main priorities in life, the dedicated TV viewers are thankful for their favorite reality stars. Aside from spending time with family and devouring delicious foods, there’s no better way to celebrate Thanksgiving than by enjoying some reality star photos in the latest edition of Instagram Roundup. It’s also a lot better than indulging in awkward or boring conversation with your least favorite relatives.

There were just so many random (and juicy) things going on this week! Real Housewives of New Jersey pot stirrer Kim D was hanging out with former cast members Jacqueline Laurita and Amber Marchese to talk shit about Teresa at a friend’s baby shower. Love & Hip Hop star Joseline Hernandez shared a photo with her and Cynthia Bailey’s ex husband Peter Thomas. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent shared a selfie from church (yes, you read that correctly) and she even made it to Kathy Wakile’s pizza restaurant in New Jersey- if that is not the most random pairing in the world, then I don’t know what is. Oh wait, yes I do: Whitney Sudler-Smith at a baby shower with Reese Witherspoon. I have so many questions about that one.
