This is one reality TV couple that isn't breaking up anytime soon – despite some pesky infidelity rumors

Caroline Manzo just celebrated her 30th anniversary with husband Al Manzo. Caroline posted a montage of their years together on Facebook, which included a fabulously 80's flashback wedding photo. Caroline was gorgeous!  

"Happy 30th Anniversary Al, If U live 2 B 100, I want 2 B 100 minus 1 day so I never have 2 live without U," Caroline wrote

Melissa Gorga is not just going to be hanging out at home when the new season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Sunday, July 13th. Melissa, along with a few of the other housewives is turning their premiere party into a charity event.

Melissa posted the flyer up on Twitter, which features pictures of herself, returning star Dina Manzo, Teresa Giudice and newcomer Amber Marchese, so I am assuming that they will be in attendance.

So just what will your $100 ticket get you at a Real Housewives of New Jersey Premiere Party?

Do you have any pinot and popcorn left over from yesterday's long and crazy tale of the sale/notsale of Joe and Melissa Gorga's mansion in Montville?  If not, go get a fresh batch of both because the story isn't over!  Kai Patterson is sharing many more details and further explanations today in a statement he prepared.  Lies, money issues, shady business dealings and back-outs, and much more..just another day in the RHONJ hood! 

I'm going to warn you in advance that this is hella long.  I was going to find a way to trim it down and summarize, but really..it's just too detailed and fascinating to cut up.  In a nutshell, there's a possibility that Joe wasn't totally up front with Melissa about his side deals, repair promises and other agreements with Kai.  They did ask Kai to participate in an episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey where he would say he purchased the house.  Also, Patterson didn't get the keys to the house until February of this year. Melissa shut off all the utilities when they moved out in September and -big shock- the pipes allegedly froze and burst over the winter. 

Settle in because here is his statement and explanation almost in its entirety!

As with everything involving The Real Housewives of New Jersey, things are not ever as they seem.  And in the case of Melissa Gorga's $3.8 million Montville mansion, the cracks are showing – literally!  Kai Patterson's spokesperson reached out to shoot down the claims made in the press yesterday by Joe and Melissa regarding the sale of their home and their attempt to evict him from the mansion for non-payment.  It would appear there's another side to the story (shocker!) and it's a doozy!

Mr. Patterson's rep shared an extensive response which includes a laundry list of repairs not completed on the home – with photo evidence and more.  Get your popcorn and Pinot.  There are BEAVERS running amok in the Gorga mansion, y'all! 

"In response to your article related to the Gorga's home, Mr. Patterson's rental agreement was modified on November 21, 2013, which changed the price of the rent to $10,000 per month (See Attachment: Modification of Lease and Purchase Terms Executed by All Parties on 11-21-2014.pdf – Paragraph 3b).  A subsequent agreement changed the start date of the agreement executed on November 21, 2013 to February 26, 2014 and possession was taken the property on February 28, 2014.  The February 26, 2014 agreement pushed back the increase in rent until after October 2014, which the Gorgas failed to provide to the Court (See Attachment: Paragraph 1 of Modified Rider as of 02-26-2014).  In addition to paying $10,000 rent, an additional $10,000 per month was to be paid towards the purchase of the property, and those payments were to be used make several needed repairs before and after taking possession of the property.  Although the Gorgas were initially paid $10,000 rent, and a deposit of $25,000, which was to be applied to the purchase price of the home and used to make the repairs, none of the repairs were made on the list of repairs provided below (See: Needed Repairs List and Pictures Below)." 

RHONJ Melissa and Joe

Well, things are making a little more sense in the sale of Joe and Melissa Gorga's mansion. 
The couple reportedly sold their Montville home for full asking price of $3.8 million dollars back in August, but no sale was ever recorded with the county.  Our sources told us that the couple was  either renting out the home or dealing with a land-contract type situation (reportedly software engineer and Project Child Support founder Kai D. Patterson – sometimes known as Kai Paterson).

A rep for the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars shared that they are trying to evict the buyer for non payment and bounced checks.  “In August 2013, the Gorgas entered into a purchase agreement with an extended close option for the sale of their Montville home. To date, the purchaser has failed to uphold his financial obligations under the agreement and provided bounced checks totaling $20,000 as well as failed to pay rent for the months of April, May, and June 2014."

Luxury Ladies Luncheon hosted by Jill Zari

Despite losing her job, Kathy Wakile is forging full-speed ahead in the building of a massive new home! Hopefully this means she invested her Real Housewives of New Jersey paychecks wisely and isn't headed down the same path of some of her former co-stars and family members (ahem… Teresa Giudice! Ahem… shady house issues with Melissa Gorga and hubby Joe!). 

Kathy and Richie have been working with Kevin Jonas (as in Jonas brothers) to design and build their new place and updating fans on instagram. 

It's too bad we won't get to see more of the project on the upcoming season of RHONJ. And congratulations to Kathy and Richie – can't wait to see the completed project.

The Manzo family are taking their goofiness on the road as they travel to Texas – perhaps for their spinoff Manzo'd With Children

Caroline Manzo shared photos of Lauren Manzo, the boys Chris and Albie, and even Al goofing off as they took for a trip down south with cowboy boots, big hats, and even bigger antics. 

Below are some photos from the Manzo family trip which included a honky-tonk bar, a county fair, and BBQ, of course!

Chris And Jacqueline Laurita: New Movement In Signature Apparel Bankruptcy Case

It's mind-boggling that it has been almost five years since Signature Apparel Group filed for bankruptcy!  The company, owned by former Real Housewives of New Jersey star Chris Laurita and his brother Joseph filed for bankruptcy in late 2009, despite having record income of $250 million during the years of 2005-2009.  The bankruptcy has been held up by a number of a issues, namely the accusation that the Lauritas frivolously spent eight million dollars for personal use. 

According to the complaint at the time, Chris and Joseph were accused of "draining the company of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations,” the complaint filed November 2, 2010 alleged. “Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.”
