Real Housewives of New Jersey

Luann de Lesseps blog

Sure, every show in the Real Housewives franchise is unique is, but there are certain elements that carry through in every series. Although each Housewife is unique, there is pretty much always one person in each show who is a real stickler for etiquette- and wants every single person to be aware of it.

These are the ladies who live by a set of social rules and love to remind the other cast members about it whenever they possibly can. You know who I’m talking about and there’s one of these girls in each series. Sometimes these ladies are just genuinely trying to share some guidance based on their past experiences. And other times these are the kind of women who just like to hear themselves talk about etiquette over and over again.

andy cohen annoyed with teresa giudice on wwhl sit-down

I’m sure my fellow Real Housewives of New Jersey fans watched the Real Housewives of New Jersey Teresa Checks In and have kept up with all of the legal drama surrounding Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice. With that said, it was pretty highly publicized that Joe and their four daughters visited Teresa as much as they could.

So I just figured that Teresa would return the favor with the regular visits- especially since he is going to be behind bars for such a long time. Well, apparently that is not exactly what’s happening and the reasoning is pretty surprising.

OK! Magazine So Sexy - Kandi Burruss

Two weeks ago, a random assortment of west coast reality TV stars, including Lala Kent, James Kennedy, and Farrah Abraham, came out for the OK! Magazine “So Sexy” Party in West Hollywood. Last night, OK! threw the same party for the east coast stars in New York City.

Above: Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kandi Burruss shows us why she’s worthy of the “So Sexy” invite. Is it just me, or has Kandi never looked better?! And I don’t mean just her figure, she’s positively glowing these days. Seriously, I will have what she is having. Um, err, except for the crazy mother and the infant that doesn’t sleep through the night. ūüėČ

The majority of the party goers were stars from Mob Wives and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, including Drita D’Avanzo, Brittany Foggarty, Karen Gravano, Carla Facciolo, Jacqueline Laurita, and Rosie Pierrri, but a few from Party Down South, Big Brother, Rich Kids of Beverly Hills, and Real Housewives of New York made an appearance as well. Check out the pics below.

Teresa Giudice in a maroon dress

In the case of Teresa Giudice it’s once again, No Money, Mo Problems! Hey – stars, they’re just like us! Teresa and Joe Giudice cannot get their finances together no matter how money they earn, how many professionals they hire, or how many months they spend in prison!

Last year Teresa and Joe were nailed with a $551,000 tax lien, and this year the State Of NJ¬†is after them for owing another $250k in back taxes. People it is not that difficult. I mean: GET TURBOTAX! Or maybe the issue comes in the writing the checks portion of the exchange? Anyway… the Giudices are again in trouble for not paying the IRS.¬†

Real Housewives of New Jersey

This week was ChristmasByBravo as they dropped not one but two new premiere dates on us! First they gave us The Real Housewives of Orange County premiere date (June 20th) and a season sneak peek trailer featuring vow renewals, dune buggy crashes and more. The next day they put another present under our tree: The Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere date (July 10th) and sneak peek trailer for the season. 

The trailers left us with more questions than answers and we can’t wait for both train wrecks to blow back into our living rooms. Until those days arrive, let’s dish on the upcoming seasons. What you can’t wait for, what you wish you could change about the upcoming season, and more. Vote in our polls below and tell us in the comments what you’re looking forward to – and what you’re dreading the most on RHONJ and RHOC!

RHONY season 8

Andy Cohen popped in this week on Amy Phillips’ Reality Checked radio show. He dished for a few minutes on some things we can expect coming up for Real Housewives of New York, Dallas and New Jersey. Andy shared what made him cry this week, what we can expect from an insane RHONY secret, why Erika Jayne is hooked on a particular Housewives show and more!

Andy shared with Amy that next week’s episode of Real Housewives of New York is something we cannot miss. “The entire thing takes place over two and a half hours at Dorinda’s house in the Berkshires. It’s like a one act play, it’s like a drawing room comedy, with some blood. Like a couple murders, basically. You may need hours to dissect next week’s episode. Bethenny dismembers Luann, basically, within the first six minutes of the show in a way that I’ve never seen.” But he says with all the drama and insanity, it’s still funny as only RHONY can be in the midst of drama.

Teresa Giudice Bankruptcy

One step forward, two steps back in the designer shoes Teresa Giudice couldn’t afford but bought on credit she never intended to repay… a federal judge has decided to reopen the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star’s $13.5 million dollar bankruptcy case.

The reason Teresa spent a year in prison, and the reason Joe Giudice is currently behind bars, is the result of being found guilty of bankruptcy fraud. Shortly before Teresa got locked up, a judge decided to close their bankruptcy, meaning Teresa and Joe were liable to repay their creditors.
