Lauren Manzo grew up in front of the Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras. So should come as no surprise that the reality star is pretty open about sharing details from her upcoming wedding to longtime love Vito Scalia.
Lauren, along with the help of her mother, Caroline Manzo, have been planning up a storm. The date — next summer. The place — do you really think that she would get married anywhere other than the family-owned The Brownstone? The dress — a beautiful Vera Wang gown. But what about the guest list?
“This week’s show really made me cry,” shared Dina. “I miss Luke so much, he left early in the season, so I think that’s why I look stressed and tired a lot too!”
Dina continued, “Luke was like my personal jester, no matter what was going on he could always make me laugh. He is truly a son to me and a brother to Lexi and I am hoping he finds what he is looking for back home. If nothing else I’m sure his mom is so happy to have her little boy back on her side of the pond, and like I said, my door will always be open to him (and any other stray that needs a home)!” Well, that explains the tacky hat, it must have been a stray.
Then Teresa and Gia have a heart-to-heart about Teresa’s life. Poor Gia – always the counselor, never the child. Teresa needs to remember Gia isn’t her peer. After Gia gets dropped off (I hope Teresa dropped her off at school and not at the Fashion Design business where she used to work (#DontTellMomTheBabySittersDead. #InsideJoke #GetIt #90s). And then Teresa tells Audriana, aged 4, how nice and amazing and smart, and a good listener her mom Gia is. Teresa is so glad they’re friends!
Since Amber has had The Cancer she’s become The Religious, and now considers herself the Mother Teresa in drag makeup of RHONJ. She and Jim go to church on Ash Wednesday and all of the sudden she receives The Vision and has to run outside to call Teresa. Right. Now. to check in on her. Teresa is in the gym and doesn’t want to tawk. She certainly doesn’t want to tawk about her legal issues but Amber’s questions are more probing than Rino’s prostate exam (see below!).
Last week on Real Housewives Of New Jersey, Teresa Giudice headed to court where she and Joe Giudicepled guilty for various frauds. Teresa submitted a plea for 4 counts and Joe for 5. Although the couple hasn’t been sentenced yet they’re both looking at jail time!
This week the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars struggle for normalcy after the media explosion of their guilty plea. That includes being brave and thinking positively for their four girls – and turning to old friends like Jacqueline Laurita in times of need.
Kai has shared several new emails and documents over the past few days. As we’d prepare to share it, something new would pop up. So, I’m going to summarize up here and paste the rest in full down below for those of you who love the nitty gritty “total package.”
After the judge ordered him to pay Melissa and Joe almost $30,000 in fees, rent and attorney fees, Patterson is ready to leave the Gorga mansion. Kai attempted to persuade Joe to accept a termination agreement that would get him off the hook for both the rental and the purchase of Casa de Beaver, but Joe is not on board. Patterson even found a new rental, but is stuck until the Gorgas agree to let him go – but he may be leaving anyway.
Kai claims he is giving up on the Gorga mansion because he has received estimates from contractors on what the repairs will cost. He claims the repairs will cost between $300,000-400,000! He’s sending Joe a notice that he’s terminating their agreement and leaving the premises and feels he’s well within his rights to do so without further issue.
OK so, Amber Marchese is an emotional girl, but she means well guys. She just feels everything soooo deeply and she just wants everyone to get along, be happy, and love each other! So why the hell is she on Real Housewives Of New Jersey?! And Amber also has a lot to say… about everything! And everyone!
On this week’s episode, Amber sobbed over tabloid stories that Teresa Giudice was going to jail and tried to reconnect with Bobby Ciasulli after making up with Nicole Napolitano. Unfortunately sweet innocent Amber is also dealing with being burdened by knowing a horrible secret about Teresssssssssa Aprea‘s mother and she’s not sure what to do with this sterling information… besides, you know, the obvious: bring it up in front of everyone!
Amber reveals that she’s offended anyone would think less of her for reacting honestly – and she’s also offended that her heartfelt attempt to reconcile with Bobby was to mock her.
“I find it completely offensive that Bobby shared my personal text to him in relation to what Bobby did to me and shared it to not only with Nicole, but also TeResssa, and then with the world,” Amber laments. “I was reaching out and he used it as a ‘look at me’ moment to impress the twins. My intentions and hope were to privately work things out, get through the B.S. and remain friends.”
