Real Housewives of New Jersey

Real Housewives of New Jersey newbie Melissa Gorga is now having to experience the not so fun part of her new found fame.

In the latest issue of the National Enquirer, out of the woodworks is a woman named Jamie Bauer alleging she had a lesbian relationship with Melissa and dated her for 18-months while she was still a teenager. In fact Jamie even ponies up photos to the tabloid magazine to prove her claim, some of which are below.

“Melissa had one of the most insatiable sexual appetites I’d ever found in a woman,” declared her alleged former girlfriend Jamie, adding that Melissa once led a hell-raising life that is nothing like her now squeaky-clean motherly image. “This domesticated family woman that fans see on ‘Bravo’ is definitely not the same wild child I used to share a bed with when we were younger.”

Jamie reveals she met Melissa when she was a 16-year-old sophomore at South Florida’s Boca Raton High School back in 1995. Jamie was also 16 at the time. “We met one night at a house party and it was love at first sight,” says Jamie. “As a couple, we couldn’t have been a more unlikely pair. Melissa was from a affluent family and hung out with all the popular kids. She was a cheerleader, never got into trouble and made good grades. I was just the opposite. I was a high school dropout and already living on my own.” says Jamie.

“After we started dating, Melissa told me I was the first girl she’d ever been with. We managed to keep our relationship a secret from her mom for several months, even though I spent the night at their house several times a week and we’d sleep in the same bed.”

Jamie adds that Melissa’s mom eventually caught on to the relationship and banned them from seeing each other, though they still did secretly. “I’d sneak into Melissa’s bedroom window several times a week for sex,” claims Jamie. Eventually things cooled off between the two when Jamie was sent to jail for a probation violation.

Jamie adds that Melissa still wrote her “steamy letters” almost every day while she was in jail. However things ended after 18 months of dating when Jamie discovered Melissa had cheated on her. “When I got out, I found out she had cheated on me with another girl while I was away,” states Jamie.

Fast forward to today and it appears Melissa’s alleged lesbianism didn’t take as she has been married to Joe Gorga for almost 7 years with three children together, something Jamie is not too fond of. Jamie reveals watching Melissa’s new life on the RHONJ makes her “nauseous.” Wowzers. As for Melissa, she has yet to publicly comment on this story. You can read more about the story in the current issue of the National Enquirer.

Photos of Melissa and Jamie together are below.

In other NJ news, the Enquirer is also reporting that Melissa’s sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is seriously considering getting $40,000 worth of plastic surgery after recent photos of her in a bathing suit caused her “severe anxiety.” A source reveals Teresa, 39, is dealing with “a lot of insecuri­ties.”

On Teresa’s reported to do list? A $12,000-$15,000 tummy tuck and thigh liposuction, a $7,500 “touch-up” on her boob job, a $5,000-$7,000 butt-lift, a $9,500 face- and brow-lift and $1,000-$2,000 on lip plumping. “She’s suddenly found herself famous around the world and feels entitled to this makeover because now she’s a star,” said the insider. Teresa’s publicist however denies she’s planning any cosmetic work.

And finally, no new episode of the RHONJ will air tonight. The show returns next week with an all new episode.

UPDATEMelissa denied the story during her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live. According to Melissa, her relationship with Jamie was only a friendship.

It seems Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice sells magazines! That is evident by the fact that she is gracing three magazine covers this week, two of which are above (you can click on the covers to make it bigger). And if the cover stories are to be believed, Teresa is both pregnant and pursuing a new man. So let’s examine both stories!

First up is the In Touch cover story as Teresa graces the magazine cover for the 4th time in 6 weeks! Holy famewhore! Out of all the mags, In Touch actually has a paid real interview with Teresa.

The cover touts “A Baby Boy For Teresa!” So is she pregnant? Well that answer is NO. In reading the actual story, it is a what if scenario for Teresa who reveals she is considering having another baby, a son, for husband Joe Giudice. “I don’t know if my body will be able to take it,” explains Teresa who gained nearly 50 pounds with first child Gia.

Teresa, who has four daughters with hubby Joe, adds that having a son is very important to her husband. “That’s important to him, she says adding that even though a new baby would take a toll physically, financially and emotionally, she still wants to give Joe the little boy he’s always wanted.

In fact, Teresa and Joe already have a name picked out for their yet to be conceived baby boy. “It would definitely be Franco, after my father-in-law,” she shares. And Joe approves. “I think my dad would like that,” smiles Joe adding that he daydreams about teaching a son “football, baseball, boxing, karate, anything he likes.”

Teresa, who filed bankruptcy in 2009 with an $11 million debt, however worries about the financial toll having another baby would bring. “You have to worry about college,” says Teresa. “I want to be able to give them everything, and the more kids, the harder that gets.”

Moving right along to the OK! story which states Teresa is on the brink of divorce with Joe. The reason? Because he might be going away for 10 years. Joe was arrested earlier this year and charged with using his brother’s ID to get a driver’s license (his license is suspended due to a past DUI conviction) and faces up to 10 years in prison.

“If he goes to prison for years, Teresa will likely file for divorce,” says an insider. “Teresa’s really angry at him, she can’t believe he got arrested again. She just can’t forgive him. The fact that he premeditated [illegally getting the driver's license] and didn’t ask her what she thought has made her flip,” adds the source.

“She’s accepted that Joe will probably end up in prison for a while, and there’s no way she wants to be single. She’s faced the idea of dating again,” reveals the insider before going on to state Teresa already has a certain man in mind that she wants in her life.

As for Teresa, she is laughing all the way to the bank about the stories. She tweeted yesterday morning after the mags came out, “Happy hump day!!! What’s news (besides more tabloid covers…)? Enjoying your summer? xx.”  You can read more of both stories in the issues of In Touch and OK! magazine.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3 Teresa Giudice

The never ending legal drama for Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice continues.

Almost 2 years after filing bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt, Teresa is facing the possibility that her bankruptcy filing could be overturned. Why? She is facing trial for bankruptcy fraud alongside her husband Joe Giudice.

If you recall, we reported last year that the Giudices were scheduled to go on trial July 14th. However the Giudices were able to get that date postponed last month. While New Jersey Judge Morris Stern refused to dismiss the trial, he did postpone it to October 13th… just in time for the filming of the RHONJ season 4.

The Giudices’ trustee John W. Sywilok is accusing them of concealing assets and hiding income on their bankruptcy filing. You can read all about that by clicking here. The goal of the trustee is to get the bankruptcy granted to them dismissed so that they will be responsible for all their debt. In addition to that, Teresa and Joe also have another trial scheduled for January 2012. It appears plaintiffs in that case are trying to get a judge to exclude a mortgage debt related to Joe’s dealings with his former business partner Joe Mastropole, excluded from their bankruptcy.

In other NJ news, Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga spoke about their feud in a new interview. Melissa, 31, reveals she is willing to let bygones be bygones when it comes to her relationship, or lack thereof, with Tre. Melissa also insinuates that Teresa was only willing to make up with her because of the Bravo cameras.

“There’s definitely times where I hear her point,” Melissa told the L.A. Times “But it’s been frustrating for me because I’ve been asking her for years and years and years to fix it, to work it out with me. All of a sudden, within the last year, she was doing all the right things and saying the right things. But better now than never, I guess. I’ve been trying to get her to act this way for years. I guess I was confused: ‘Why now?’ But whatever. We’re family. I’m always willing to forgive.”

So how is their relationship today? “Right now, she’s my sister-in-law,” Melissa said. “We have kids the same age — we try, we try to work it out. And we try to be together for the family. It’s not like we’re best friends, but we’re family. I want my husband to have a relationship with his family.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Teresa and Melissa vow to put the past behind them but just can’t, Jacqueline has a few too many red wines, Caroline gets her panties in a bunch and isn’t any fun, Kathy wants to open a restaurant, and Teresa invites her Made For TV Family to The Catskills for some old fashioned gun shootin, four-wheelin, TMI sex talk,wine-guzzling fun! Did I mention the TMI sex talk?

Ending where things left off last week, Melissa and Teresa are disagreeing about the Gorga Family Feud. Melissa comes out swinging by essentially blaming Teresa for the “disgusting” Christening debacle and insisting Teresa is never around and never sees their kids. Seriously. And suddenly it becomes all about the Joes and which Joe owes more money to which creditors. In the tit for tat convo, Teresa brings up Joe owing money to some plumbers and Melissa responds with a savage blow when she declares that Jr. Mafia Joe borrowed money from Non-Juicy, but when her hubby tried to collect on his debts Joe told Joe: “If you want your money sue me!” Melissa is confused and wants to know why her fellow shopaholic housewife just can’t skip a pair of Manolos to pay back the loan: “just pay me the $1000 – your wife is wearing more than that on her feet!” Duh!

Joe Gorga

On the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the feud between sisters-in-law Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga took a turn for the nastier when Teresa accused Melissa of being a gold digger.

In a new interview, Melissa is now defending herself stating she married Joe Gorga for love and not for money. “When I hear her call me pretty much a gold digger, it’s like putting a knife in my heart and twisting it, because I know that she knows that’s not true,” Melissa told E! News.

Melissa continued, “Joe and I have been married for seven years and have three kids.” She goes on to add that she has stuck by Joe through financial difficulty. “We went through a time where we couldn’t even buy diapers. We had to sell every house we lived in…Did I go anywhere? Would I ever? No. It hurts me that she would even put that out there, to put that in someone’s head. And it doesn’t even hurt me as bad as it hurts her brother,” said Melissa.

Melissa also revealed that while she got along with Teresa in the beginning, they were never really BFFs. “Before the show came around, Teresa and bumped heads, but we always worked it out,” she said. “It wasn’t like we hated each other. We’d always be in the same rooms, but we never were best friends. You know, some people just don’t click.”

And similar to Tre, Melissa states she is also getting into the liquor business. “I have a champagne that I’m coming out with,” she said. “It’s called Magnifica Giornata and it stands for ‘magnificent day.’ It’s like a motto, ‘Every day’s a magnificent day.’” Seems like Ramona Singer has some competition coming her way!

Moving on to tonight’s all new super-sized episode of the RHONJ. On the 7th episode this season titled “Teresa’s Got a Gun,” Teresa and Melissa attempt to make peace, after which some of the gang journey to the Catskills. Back in the Garden State, Kathy savors the flavor of scouting for restaurants and Melissa prepares for a holiday dance recital. This spins into motion a family reunion that won’t include Teresa.

The episode airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below. And finally, Melissa, who was in Los Angeles this week to do press for the show, linked up with OC housewives Tamra Barney and Peggy Tanous on Friday. “At a club w/ Melissa and Joe from jersey… I luv them!” tweeted Tamra. A photo of Melissa with Tamra is below!

Watch What Happens Live – The show is also super-sized tonight with guests Vicki Guvanlson, Jacqueline Laurita, and Dina Manzo.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA CALLING MELISSA A GOLD DIGGER? DO YOU THINK SHE IS? PLUS THOUGHTS ON PREVIEW & NEW EPISODE?

Following their widely publicized bankruptcy, Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice painted a picture of a hard working Joe running a pizza shop on the season premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

However, a new report by UsWeekly magazine is painting a slightly different picture. An insider tells the latest issue of the mag that Joe, 41, is no longer working. The reason? He has already sold his Giuseppe’s Homestyle Pizzeria, where he’d worked since at least last October.

“He now has no job,” the source reveals of the former entrepreneur, who filed for bankruptcy with Teresa in October 2009, to the tune of $11 million in debt.

The source adds that Teresa, 39, is now the breadwinner of the family. “They’re living off her Housewives paychecks and even from her two cookbooks!” adds the source. In the Giudices’ defense, it could be that perhaps Joe is now looking to start a new business venture.

In fact, Teresa recently revealed in an interview that her and Joe are looking to get into the wine business. “We’re starting a new business with wines,” Teresa told the NY Daily News this week citing that Joe actually makes homemade wine. Teresa also stated a while back that she is hoping to get her own cooking show.

In other news, Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorga alongside her husband Joe Gorga appeared on Ryan Seacrest’s radio show this morning during which they discussed Teresa and Melissa’s singing.

When asked what led to the brother-sister feud, Joe reveals it all stems from competition. “What happened was competition. My daughter was born and she was competitive with the kids.” said Joe. “Me and my sister were cool. My problem was when my daughter was born. that was my biggest issue with my sister. She’ll say she doesn’t know what we’re talking about, but that was my issue.”

And what about the angry meltdown during the Christening? “It was a tough moment. I was holding in a lot of pain for a lot of years, and it happened. I was very embarrassed,” Joe explained.

Melissa adds, “I think that she was used to being the only Italian girl around. Because she had just her brother, they don’t have a lot of family.”

As for Melissa’s singing, she reveals she plans to release her first single in July before going on to assure us she can really sing. “You’re going to see it, not this coming episode, but the following episode, you’re going to see me sing a cappella next to a piano,” said Melissa. “So, there is no auto-tune going on, this is real voice. I’m working with producers that produce songs for Britney and Beyonce.” A picture of Melissa and Joey with Ryan is below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JOE BEING JOBLESS & JOE GORGA’S COMMENTS ABOUT TERESA?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey it was all about Family Feuds (which sadly did not include the game show). Teresa behaves appropriately, Kathy just wants to be liked, The Caroline discovered a new medium for interfering in people’s lives, and Jacqueline helped broker the Gorga Peace Treaty.

The episode started out with The Caroline preparing for her big radio debut by using her friend Dolores to act as a Teresa-imposter so she can “practice” administering advice for “Caroline Rules” her new show on New Jersey 101.5. For some reason The Caroline is nervous about being her bossy self in public, despite spending a couple seasons on a reality show doing just that! Caroline brings up Teresa’s bankruptcy judgment and pending auction – describing that her friend has a lot on her plate and things are out of control in her life.

In the Gorga household, Alexis 2.0 Jersey Jesus Midge (Barbie’s brunette friend!) is thanking Jesus that peace is being made today between Teresa and Non-Juicy Joe, as she helps her husband untuck his shirt just so to avoid looking messy. Meanwhile in Foreclosed Marble Mansion-Land (aka the Giudice residence) Teresa is also getting ready and announces that Joe needs to do something about Melissa because she is leading their family down a crooked road with all of her poison! Ummm… I thought poison was something used to make babies according to Joe Gorga? Teresa declares: “A wife makes it or a wife breaks it” and therefore it is Joe’s responsibility to put Melissa in check! Is it also Jr Mafia’s responsibility to put Teresa in check – because frankly I don’t think that’s possible (see: Bankruptcy spending.) After adjusting his cross and refolding his letter from Teresa, Joe is off to demand an apology from his sister, the villainess.
