Real Housewives of New Jersey

With less than 2 weeks until the season premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice has released her second book.

As we reported last week, Teresa’s first book – Skinny Italian- was a big success selling over 100,000 copies, and the follow up to that is a new cookbook titled Fabulicious!: Teresa’s Italian Family Cookbook.

Fabulicious, released yesterday, promises “60 more flavorful family recipes straight from Salerno–with an emphasis on preparing, serving, and eating meals with the ones you love” as Teresa shares her simple, inexpensive, and “fabulicious” dishes. Okay, all seems pretty harmless except Teresa manages to take a dig at her sister-in-law and costar Melissa Gorga in her cooking book. Yes folks, you read that right.

Below is an excerpt from the book in which Teresa talks about her family -

“I see my brother, Joe Gorga, his wife Melissa, my niece Antonia, and my nephews Gino and Joey several times a week. Same with all of Joe’s sisters and brothers, and their families, my cousins, my aunts, and my mother and father-in-law… and no, we don’t always get along. Do I sometimes wish my cousin would stop with the lame jokes? Yes. Do I wish my baby sister-in-law didn’t copy everything I do down to the shoes I wear and the chairs on my front porch? Of course! But you know what they say: “You can’t pick your family.”

Yes folks, that is a direct quote from Teresa’s cooking book. It must take a special skill to use a cooking book as a venue to take a dig at a family member though something tells us Teresa will play dumb deny she meant it in a bad way. But slamming of the family members aside, the book also offers some pretty delish recipes!

In other New Jersey news, the housewives visited the Bravo offices yesterday to do some promotion for the show. Those pictures are below as well as the screen shots from Teresa’s book. Also below is a preview clip from the upcoming premiere episode in which Teresa explains her relationship with her brother Joe and Melissa.

Let the drama games begin!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice took to her twitter page yesterday and managed to slam two of her Bravo housewives counterparts including her sister-in-law.

First, Teresa, 38, took a shot at Real Housewives of NYC star Simon van Kempen. Though in Teresa’s defense, Simon did sorta fire the first shots. In an interview with Popeater yesterday to promote the release of his new music single ‘I Am Real‘ (listen here at your own risk), Simon was asked which Bravo housewife should never record a song, and he replied “Teresa Giudice.”

It seems Teresa was none too happy with neither Simon’s response nor his music. She tweeted yesterday, “I guess RHONY Simon said of all people *I* should never do a song. Hmm… Singing’s not my thing. Apparently not his either. #worstsongever.”

Okay, fair enough. Except Teresa then took things a step further insulting her costar and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga with her follow up tweet. “And I have heard some BAD Housewife songs. Trust me. xx,” added Teresa.

See Teresa hates Melissa, who also happens to be a singer with a new single whose singing story line will play a major role on the upcoming season of the NJ Housewives… according to the season trailer.

Melissa caught wind of Teresa’s tweet and responded with “I see the green eyed monster strikes again…….” Safe to assume the two sister-in-laws have yet to make up. A screen shot of the tweets below -

Meanwhile, the AMNY site is reporting that we can expect to see a whole lot more of Albie and Chris Manzo when the third season of the NJ Housewives premieres May 16.

Albie reveals he and his younger brother filmed “a lot more” this season with their mother Caroline Manzo. “At this point, I think it’s become a family experience — it’s what separates us more from the other ‘Housewives’ shows,” said Albie.

As for what we can expect this season, Albie teases, “You’ve got to wait and see.”

UPDATE - Teresa responded to our story on her twitter page stating she was not slamming Melissa but rather former costar Danielle Staub.

“Me tweeting a joke ab Simon’s song is turned into a whole article? http://t.co/OkL0x9p LMAO But sorry I was NOT talking about my sis-in-law,” tweeted Teresa adding “My sis-in-law doesn’t even have a song out… I was talking about D and her hilarious fake lesbian song from last year.”


The Real Housewives of New Jersey managed to remain in the headlines while they filmed their third season thanks to the antics of some of the stars, which included a brawl at a christening party and a recent brawl during a vacation to the Dominican Republic.

So when Bravo finally released the season 3 trailer last week, many fans were disappointed as it seemed to be lacking the drama we were expecting. Well fret not as it seems Bravo heard the complaints. The network has released a new sneak peek giving us a look into the family drama involving Teresa Giudice, her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga, and her cousin Kathy Wakile.

In the video below, Teresa says about her brother, “He was like my best friend … [But that changed] after he got married. Melissa’s my sister-in-law and we’re not exactly best friends.” We then get to see the widely talked about christening brawl which begins with Teresa walking over to her brother and his wife, words are exchanged and Joe tells Teresa, “You’re garbage.”

The family feud erupts, and well, you just have to see the madness below. Kathy sums it up best when she states: “War has lots of casualties.” The new season of the NJ Housewives premieres May 16 on Bravo.

There is life after being a Bravo housewife after all!

Former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dina Manzo has landed her own reality show.

Dina, 39, will star in a new series for the HGTV network. The series will follow Dina and the staff of her event company Design Affairs as they create lavish events in their clients’ homes.

“Dina is an accomplished interior designer and also runs a thriving event planning business — her Real Housewives fans will be very surprised to see this side of her,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager of HGTV. “Dina brings a unique set of skills to HGTV and I’m thrilled to have her join our growing team of expert talent.”

The weekly series is set to debut in September.

It also seems Dina will make some appearances on the upcoming season of the ‘NJ Housewives.’ “Yes even tho I’m part of the HGTV family now u will still see me on @BravoTV here & there! Sooner than you think ; )” tweeted Dina on Friday.

As suspected by most, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice was indeed the reason behind the Dominican Republic bar brawl last month.

RadarOnline is reporting that while Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice and Caroline Manzo’s sons were detained for the fight, it all started with a simple innocent act courtesy of Teresa at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana on February 23. A playful antic that didn’t sit well with one bar patron.

“She opened the champagne and just started spraying it everywhere and it went all over this woman near her,” said a source. “It was late, they were on vacation, and she was just having fun.”

However, the husband of the woman who got drenched did not take kindly to Teresa’s actions, as he physically attacked Teresa.

“It was crazy, he got really angry and punched Teresa in the face!” said the source. Whoa! At this point, Teresa’s husband Joe along with Albie and Chris Manzo stepped in to defend Teresa. “Joe, Albie and Chris were trying to protect Teresa and they just grabbed the guy and started fighting, and then people joined in.”

Bravo reportedly tried to break-up the fight to no avail. “Everyone was involved. It became a massive scene,” another source explained.

As previously reported, eight people wound up injured with two reports stating Joe stuck a male patron with a glass. Two of the injured patrons complained to the police resulting in all parties being detained and their passports seized. Eventually, everyone was released after local attorneys came in to smooth things over.

But the biggest shocker of all you ask? According to Radar, Bravo will not air fight on the upcoming season of the show.

No reason was given for this decision by Bravo. Perhaps the network feels this fight crossed a line in trashy reality TV, not that we think Bravo has any high standards to begin with. However, the most likely reason would be due to the legal ramifications, aka a lawsuit by the injured parties if proof footage of the injury causing attacks are aired on national television. And as we all know, the last thing the Giudices need is more legal drama.

Days after being arrested, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Joe Giudice was arraigned on fraud charges on Monday.

Joe, husband of Teresa Giudice, was arrested on Friday at the couple’s home in New Jersey and charged with fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license. He reportedly used his brother’s marriage license and birth certificate to obtain the forged license, as his license remains suspended for a DWI conviction.

The NY Post reports Joe, 40, appeared in Paterson, NJ, before Judge Philip Fenster, who maintained Joe’s $50,000 bail and scheduled a pre-indictment hearing for April 19. He was not able to enter a plea at his arraignment “because it is an indictable offense.”

Meanwhile, prosecutor Jay McCann tells the Star-Ledger that authorities were tipped to the license fraud when Joe’s brother was stopped by a cop, and the photo in the state system didn’t match.

Joe remains free on a $50,000 bond, which RadarOnline reports was posted by two of his friends. His bail was set without the 10% option.

While Joe was in jail Friday, Teresa went to her book signing at the Mount Airy Casino Resort in the Poconos. Following his release on Friday, Teresa’s mother reportedly drove him to meet his wife.

Teresa, who definitely doesn’t have a habit of being in denial when it comes to her legal problems, tweeted on Friday night, “Hanging out with my honey at Mt Airy Casino. Just finished dinner now we are going to check out the scene.”

Joe faces up to 10 years in prison for the fraudulent use of an ID and forgery.


The Giudices continue to have a rough year as Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe Giudice was arrested yet again.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was arrested at the couple’s NJ home on Friday and has been charged with fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license.

If you recall, Joe’s license got suspended last year following a conviction for drunk driving, which then landed him 10 days in jail back in September after it was discovered he was driving on a suspended license.

Well according to authorities, Joe, 40, allegedly obtained a driver’s license from the Paterson branch of the Motor Vehicle Office using his brother’s identifying information in June 2010. He is said to have used his brother’s marriage license and birth certificate to obtain the forged license.

“Mr. Giudice was arrested at his home earlier today as the result of an investigation this office did with assistance from the state Motor Vehicle Office,” said Chief Assistant Prosecutor Jay W. Mc Cann yesterday.

Joe has been charged with wrongfully using the ID of another person and for forgery. He faces more than 10 years in state prison if found guilty. His bail is set at $50,000 with no 10 percent option. No word yet on whether or not Joe has been released.

Back in January, Joe was ordered to pay $260,000 to his former business partner for forgery, and then just a month ago, he and Caroline Manzo’s sons were detained in the Dominican Republic for a bar brawl. In addition to that, the Giudices are still required to stand trial on July 14 & 15, 2011 for charges relating to bankruptcy fraud.

A report that came out last year also stated Joe’s license has been suspended a total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years due to numerous driving sanctions.

UPDATE – Teresa Giudice tweeted away last night about like nothing was wrong.  “Hanging out with my honey at Mt Airy Casino, just finished dinner now we are going to checkout the scene… We had dinner at Le Sorelle in Mt Airy Casino in Pocono Resort excellent u should try it,” tweeted Teresa on Friday night.
