Melissa took to her blog to explain that she didn't purposely exclude certain people at her birthday dinner raising of the glass. "I was grateful for the opportunity to thank our family and friends at my birthday dinner. I addressed individuals as part of a couple and I gave extra love to those who needed the positive attention and appreciation. Joe Giudice, Kathy, and Rosie really opened up in Arizona. They showed their hearts. I was proud of them for it, and said so. Somehow, my singling out some with special admiration got twisted into “snubbing” others. That was not the vibe in the room or my intention. Frankly, I was upset to hear that anyone interpreted it that way."
Teresa first shares that she and her cast mates are competitive, "Zen tennis wasn't very zen for me because I'm too competitive. I think we all are! And I've never played tennis before in my entire life. Swear! But it was fun and great exercise — a full body workout! I really like it. Maybe when Audriana goes to school, I'll take lessons or something." Not sure if they'll offer those in federal prison? But what do I know? They might!
Things begin with yet another fight about Melissa Gorga allegedly cheating on Joe Gorga. I was rolling my eyes and guzzling my wine with my Milania Hair Care Hairmuffs on so I really don't know what that man was yammering on about. I was all prepared to throw my wine glass at the TV in my own Incredible Hulk Man-angsty moment when Bravo flashed us back 12 hours earlier.
And I really wish I had been prepared with my blinders on! We are greeted by Poison grinding his junk in Melissa's face. 'Happy Birthday baby – just call me Justin Timberlake cause I got you some d*ck in a box!' Melissa is like 'Where? I don't see it… Oh. Yeah that little guy. Awwww… thanks… Hi TUHREEEZA!" If I got Poison's junk in my face for a birthday gift I would cancel birthdays for the rest of my life. And Melissa had never been so happy to see her sister-in-law.
Danielle Staub stopped by the Watch What Happens Live clubhouse tonight to dish with Andy Cohen and it was almost as good as if Kim Granatell was on! Danielle shared her love for Teresa Giudice, her loathing of the other housewives, including sharing just how Melissa Gorga landed a spot on the show! Danielle also shared that she's shooting a new reality show!
Andy kicked off the show irritating Danielle by mentioning Kim G. Trust us, we know how much she despises Kim G. Danielle blocked us on Twitter for just for saying we wished that Danielle and Kim G would be on a show together. We meant it to be fun but she wasn't having it.
Her thoughts on Teresa's federal indictment charges: "I feel bad for them. They're people, they're family and you know things that are very bad are happening to them, so it would be really wrong of anyone to enjoy that."
In the preview clip, we see Joe Gorga sucking on Melissa's toes as Teresa walks in their room at the Miraval spa in Arizona (yes, we're stillllll there!!). Teresa gifts Melissa with a pair of black lace underwear with a peace sign bedazzled on the crotch for her birthday present. Ya know, because there's peace in Jersey now.
Melissa shared a photo of the moving truck in the driveway. She wrote, "It's been a long 2 days.. 12 hrs yesterday & still going strong. Can't believe it's actually happening." There probably wasn't too much to pack as that house was pretty empty for its massive size! Which I'm not knocking – I'm all about less is more. I hate "stuff", so I'm a minimalist when it comes to that.
The Gorgas hit spent their Labor Day weekend at their Jersey Shore house before heading home to Montville to pack up and finalize things. The couple is now renting a place in a Franklin Lakes and are reportedly planning to build a new mansion. She can furnish it with her new home decor line, right?
There are still some disputes over the selling price of the home and questions about whether or not the Gorgas owned or rented it. We've been checking every day, but so far the closing and sale price haven't been updated on the government site. We'll keep you posted!
The couple was slated to stand trial in Newark, NJ on October 8th, but now will appear in court on February 24, 2014! Joe is already standing trial in October for his fake ID trial, the judge opted to push his other fraud trial back as lawyers for both sides petitioned for a continuance.
NorthJersey.com reports that the charges of assault and terroristic threats have been adjourned and will no longer go before a criminal court judge. Instead the trial will be heard in municipal court on September 26th.
The case against Johnny, filed as a result of charges being pressed by Jacqueline, Chris, and Joe, will also be adjourned and held in municipal court.
