If there's one lesson reality stars never seem to learn, it's "don't throw stones from your glass house", especially when said house could go into foreclosure at any moment. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita may be regretting all the shade she threw at Teresa Giudice about not paying her bills because it looks like Jacqs is facing more financial hot water herself.
First, there is the pesky business bankruptcy that is ongoing, which Jacqs reportedly has/had to testify for. Then there was the revelation this week that she owes the state of New Jersey more than $300,000 in back taxes. It seems that 2013 is continuing to be a rough year for Jacs, as her home is now in pre-foreclosure, reportedly.
According to Zillow (screen shots below), Jacqueline is in pre-foreclosure on her own Franklin Lakes McMansion. The Lauritas were allegedly served papers by their bank for being in default on their $1.8 million home loan.
Juicy and Tre and their four daughters posed for some under water shots while they were vacationing at the Majestic Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We were only able to procure two of these nautical gems for you, but trust us, it's enough to get the visual of what the rest of the shoot was like!
Teresa Giudice has apparently decided with all Joe Giudice's impending legal issues, she better hang onto the family she's got and she is "very confident" that her family will reconcile for good!
“Everything is good," Teresatells In Touch about her relationship with Melissa Gorga. We've heard this before! Teresa says she believes things will stay that way. "You have to let things go," she admits.
Just like Joe adamantly defended Melissa against stripper-gate, he is coming to her defense in the rumors that she had an affair.
“I don’t even know this guy,” Joeinsists to Life & Style. “People tried to bring this up two years ago; they tried to put this bulls–t out there. All I have to say is, ‘Ha, ha, ha.’”
“There’s a lot of lies and a lot of accusations…but I love my wife,” Joe shares. "The poor girl keeps getting all this abuse for no reason. They find a good mom with a good image, and it's like, ‘How can we take her down?’”
We've all been wondering when it would happen, but Juicy Jucidice is finally getting his day in court! The Real Housewives of New Jerseystar, who has the distinction of being the worst Reality TV hubby ever, will be headed to trial on April 1!
Unsurprisingly Teresa Giudice will be by his side day-after-day. Think of the glorious courthouse outfits. Squeeeee! “Teresa could be the star witness if we need to call her,” Joe’s attorney Miles Feinsteinconfirms with RadarOnline.
“And even if she doesn’t testify she will be there every day for him because she completely supports him. She wants Joe to win this case!”
Yes, you read the above right! The tangled web of 'I hate you, I love you, I want to destroy your life, oh but I just want us to be close again' that is Real Housewives of New Jersey just got… crazier? Hold on – you're in for a wild one!
Yesterday we reported that despite an alleged reconciliation of the Gorgadice families, Joe Gorga said things were still very, very bad between the families.
Following two seasons of the same fighting between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (and massive fan backlash), Bravo hired new producers to handle S5 of RHONJ as they apparently want a storyline with a more positive spin. Melissa hinted at this in an earlier interview.
According to an exclusive obtained by TamaraTattles, producers are so desperate for this family feud to end they are forcing Teresa, Melissa, and the Joes to film together and make nice (our source confirmed they held a staged playdate to appear like they are working things out).
I have, what I consider, to be bittersweet news. One of my favorites is quittingReal Housewives of New Jersey. I realize I'm likely in the minority, but I have a soft-spot for most of the Manzos. Sure I didn't like when Caroline Manzo got all bitter for an entire season (I was fearful someone was going to awaken to a horse head in their bed), but I do think she is sick of the toxicity and drama…even if she was a participant.
Even though it can certainly be argued that Caroline's children are overly coddled, I still think Albie and Chris are good guys. A friend of mine grew up with Albie, and he has nothing but nice things to say about their family. Of course, without the Manzo boys, there would be no Greg Bennett. Greggy is by far my favorite Manzo by association…and now he's leaving.
Greg is heading to the West Coast at the end of this month to make his home in San Francisco. Sadly (for me), this means he will no longer be appearing on RHONJ, but I'm hoping that he gets some screen time when he comes back to visit!
