One of the constant story lines from Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the opening of Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant. Joe supposedly bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it first. Then it became a family affair with all three of them and Joe and Teresa’s father helping out as well.
With all of the publicity around the restaurant, it would make sense for the place to be popping off – especially if Joe, Teresa, or Melissa ever announce that they’re popping in on social media. Now the restaurant is closing down with the hope of looking for a larger location.
As we count down to the season finale, Siggy is OK with her decision to leave and has no regrets. “I’ve never been so happy with my decision,” she says. “I made the right decision and I would do it all over again. I love Bravo and I love Andy Cohen but at the end of the day all the odds were stacked up against me and I chose my family.”
Margaret Josephs and Siggy are now in open war after Siggy’s accusation that Marge was anti-Semitic. Siggy’s half-hearted (and delayed) response to Marge’s apology did nothing to cool the flames. Melissa Gorga is back in the strip mall trying to make Envy happen, despite the wishes of Joe Gorga. He apparently needs a waitress at the new pizza joint, and his only remaining name tag says “Melissa.” Teresa Giudice is living like it’s 2009 all over again as she turns up at Danielle Staub’s home to offer a contractually obligatory apology to her dorters. Except one of the dorters doesn’t even want to see her! She’s like, Namaste away, crazy lady! Tre has trouble counting to two anyway, so she likely thinks all Staub offspring are present for the blessed event.
I don’t blame Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for escaping the winter cold to go on vacations with their families. Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 has wrapped up filming, they already shot the reunion, they enjoyed their Christmas cookies (pignoli and sprinkle), and it’s just too cold these days. Who wouldn’t want to soak up the sun for a few days? Plus if we’re being realistic, all of those Instagram tags and hash tags are strong indications that these trips were comped (or at least partially comped).
Teresa headed down to Cancun, Mexico with her four daughters, her father, and some of her friends. Melissa, her husband Joe Gorga, and their three kids enjoyed their vacation in Jamaica.
Your favorite Reality TV stars celebrated 2018 in style and documented their good times on social media, of course. They shared photos with their significant others, children, and friends on New Year’s Eve.
The most shocking post by far was from Vanderpump Rulesstar Lala Kent who finally posted a photo with her longtime boyfriend Randall Emmett, after over a year of speculation about their relationship. Then again, the news became officially official when that video leaked of them making out at a party, his divorce is actually finalized, and there’s really no reason to keep the romance under wraps at this point. It was just pretty surprising considering how private the two have been in the past.
It’s a family-filled time of year for all of your favorite reality stars who have been posting a lot of photos in between Christmas and the New Year. It seems like everyone went on a family vacation this week… just in time to share some great photos for this week’s Instagram Roundup.
Marge Sr. has become one of the most lovable characters on this Real Housewives of New Jerseyseason and she’s not even a Real Housewife. Margaret Josephs‘ mom steals the spotlight in every scene she is in and I find myself wanting to know more about her. She needs to be a Housewife next season. We’ve already had sisters and sisters in law on this show, so why not a mother and daughter? Marge Sr. is the most hilarious person on this show. It needs to happen.
Unfortunately I have zero pull at Bravo, but at least we all got to see Marge Sr. out on that double date with Margaret, Margaret’s husband Joe Benigno, and the accountant Steve. So did that work out? Is Marge Sr. playing the field? Is Margaret going to have a new step father? Inquiring minds want to know.
