Let’s talk about hypocrites… we see a lot of those on reality TV. Something we also see a lot of is impending nervous breakdowns – and it seems to me we’re witnessing a scary combination of the two in Caroline Manzo. Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was supposed to be about gay rights with the celebration of Jaime Laurita‘s wedding and Rosie Pierri accepting her own sexuality – sadly it was eclipsed by Caroline vs. Teresa Giudice with Caroline serving up more pettiness and more spite. This show was also about sibling relationships – and so many of these reality sibs actually have some pretty abysmal ones.
Things begin with Teresa and Gia having a chat about Teresa’s never peaceable relationship with Joe Gorga. Teresa is poking at Gia to open up with her while Gia is poking at an eggo waffle – I don’t remember that recipe being in any of T’s cookbooks! I kid, I kid.
Teresa wants to know if Gia thinks she is working hard enough on her relationship with Non-Juicy Joe and if she should do anything differently. Teresa taking advice from a ten-year-old says everything. LOL. In all actuality I thought it was a very sweet and age-appropriate conversation. I appreciated that Teresa wanted Gia to know they are working on things, but I also think Gia is exposed to a leetle too much family drama.
After last week’s brief hiatus from Real Housewives of New Jersey, I have to admit I kinda missed them. Well the drama starters of Jersey are back again and with them comes chaos, catastrophes, and craziness galore. Oh, Jersey – don’t you ever change. Ok, well maybe change a little bit… I could do with less spray tan, less marble, and less sister-in-law vs. sister-in-law drama. But you can’t win ‘em all!
To welcome back Bravo’s finest besequined, be-spray tanned, be-ostentatious ladies, Reality Tea’s source EXCLUSIVELY reveals how the possibility that Joe Giudice may end up in prison is affecting his family. “Joe’s parents are very upset over the possibility of Joe going to jail. Other family members think he deserves this and feel sorry for the kids.”

“Melissa is manipulative and jealous of Teresa’s fame and she has a dirty secret,” a source tells the site.
The source claims, “Years ago, Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, sent a tape to the producers promising that if they were cast on the show, they would do whatever it takes to get rid of Teresa.”
Apparently, Melissa has been vying for a spot on the show for a very long time no no avail. She even got friendly with the villainous Danielle Staub in hopes of gaining the attention of Bravo producers. When that didn’t work, according to the insider, Teresa told producers she would be able to bring down Teresa. I’m confused though…I know the producers want a lot of drama (clearly), but I just can’t picture them engaging in some sort of espionage laden plot to ruin the Guidices. Isn’t this old news RadarOnline?
While there is no new episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey tonight, the tumult rages on! Teresa Giuidce can’t keep her family drama out of the media for a second. First it’s her brother, then her husband, and now her daughter! Wherever Teresa goes, it seems chaos follows. However, despite appearances things aren’t as bad as they seem!
Our source tells Reality Tea EXCLUSIVELY that no matter what happens Teresa remains loyal to her husband Joe Giudice and will never divorce him! “Teresa will never leave Joe. She worships him,” our source shares. But it goes deeper than Teresa just loving her husband – apparently it’s also about her pride. “Plus, she will never let anyone see her fail at anything, including her marriage.”
Despite Joe‘s less than appealing behavior this season – including last week’s episode where he threatened to leave Teresa – is apparently the result of pressure from the show and from the media. “Joe’s behavior is off the wall due to all the TV pressure and family drama,” our source explains.
“Joe doesn’t like drama and never starts problems. He is quick to forgive and move on. Joe is not a mean person. His anger and frustration are a result of the show.” Joe may be a wonderful man, but that doesn’t take away from his DUI and his pending trial which could land him in prison for up to 10 years!

Us Weekly‘s annual Hot Bodies issue is out on newsstands and just who found themselves the recipient of such title but three of our Housewives friends!
Gretchen, Melissa, and Alexis all got together to talk being hot and how they stay that way while posing as fifties housewives in cute retro swimsuits. All the ladies are in their thirties – and they look phenomenal – photoshop or no!
About her appearance Alexis Bellino, who has admitted to struggling with an eating disorder in the past and has had several surgical enhancements says: “I’m done picking myself apart. Life’s too short to spend another month recovering.” Did I hear this correctly – Jesus Barbie is over plastic surgery?! Well, I guess hell does freeze over.
Alexis also shares that she’s over obsessing about what she eats. “I won’t give up red wine, chocolate, or carbs.” Say whatever you want about ol’ Lex, but she looks fantastic for three kids and eating carbohydrates.
Was it field day or feud day on this past episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey? Don’t you just love reading the women’s blogs, hearing what they have to say, knowing all the things they know now? Those talking head interviews can be really biting, and it’s never easy to hear a supposed friend talking smack about you. That said, can we please talk about Jacqueline Laurita and Caroline Manzo’s sportsmanship intervention with G-to-the-ia? I am not going to comment on the spunky Miss Gia (as I think it’s incredibly unacceptable and disgusting to see how some bloggers and commenters bash these kids who never asked to be growing up on television in the first place), but I will ask, do you think Jacqueline went to far in disciplining her friend’s child? Jacqueline addresses the situation in her Bravo blog:
Watch out Bethenny Frankel – there’s another Housewife mogul nipping at your heels! Teresa Giudice just announced that her third cookbook Fabulicous Fast & Fit has made it’s way to the NY Times Bestseller list.

So, does Teresa like exclamation points or what? First rumors of a spinoff, now a three-time bestseller… Teresa may just be the next uber successful Bravo star to go out on her own! Congratulations, Tre!
And just a reminder – Reality Tea will be reviewing Fabulicous: Fast & Fit for next month’s Booze ‘N’ Books Club! Grab a copy and let us know what you think of Teresa’s newest bestseller.

SURPRISED TERESA MADE THE LIST AGAIN? HAVE YOU USED ANY OF HER COOKBOOKS?
It’s no secret that Teresa Giudice is having some major issues with her day job. And unfortunately her professional problems are also carrying over into her personal life. Rumors have been flying that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star may be gravitating towards a spinoff centering around Teresa and her girls. Well, now it seems Teresa is majorly hinting that she might be ending her days as a Housewife.
In her recent Bravo blog, Teresa talks about life on reality television and about her experience on Celebrity Apprentice, away from the family drama and friendship breakdowns. “Last night was also a personal celebration of the exciting new chapter I am starting in my life. I am in a really good place now and just want to wish everyone the best,” she wrote of being on Arsenio Hall‘s winning team.
