Was everyone watching the same Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion I was last season? You remember the one where Melissa Gorga tearfully dabbed at her eyes with a sequined sleeve and told Andy Cohen they were selling their Montville mansion so her daughter wouldn't be bullied at school by Teresa Giudice's wayward band of hoodlum children?
Just checking because apparently now that's not the case. Apparently now Melissa and Joe Gorga are moving to avoid rush hour traffic or something and because they bought some oceanfront property in Arizona to lovingly construct their next zillion-dollar, impeccably finished mansion. Joe – little tip: this time skip the plastic sinks. Teresa's in debt maybe she can sell you some of her marble vanities.
Last June Daniellealleged her liabilities at $1.9M and her income of only $63,791 in 2011. She earned $13,791 from her work with Dial-A-Star (HA!) and $50,000 for winning the massive reality TV flop Famous Food. Danielle owes Nordstrom a few thousand dollars and is in hot water with the IRS for $111,161. Does anyone in Jersey pay taxes?!
She also owes $70,000 to the town of Wayne NJ because of unpaid property taxes! $5,162 to the New Jersey Taxation Department (whomever that is?) and a whole slew of money to lawyers and "communication experts." Is Danny on the list? I'm guessing low-budg sextapes and stripper antics don't cover the cost of paying PIs to dig up dirt on all your RHONJ co-stars!
On last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the Gorgadice battle continued, although the small beginnings of a peace treaty seemed to have been forged. Maybe…
Things begin in Casa de Giudice. Teresa Giudice is cooking while wrangling four screaming girls. Apparently there is some confustion (Teresa tawk) about who is actually the mama because while Milania is playing on the stove terrorizing some peppers, Gia is lecturing her about safety. Teresa meanwhile is flitting around in full hair and makeup yelling, "O.M.G!"
Teresa says she always reminds her girls to stick together and not end up married to men their siblings hate. Then she gives them a lecture on table manners. 1) Like, don't scream 'prostitution whore' unless the person really is a prostitution whore and has been engaged like 19 times! Like O.M.G!
Tonight's episode the plot will mostly center around Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo facing off for the first time since last season's "Disgrace" argument in Napa. The former friends, turned frienemies, turned total enemies will meet to try and mend Teresa's relationship with poor, widdle Poison.
Tom Murro's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that the main point of contention will be Teresa's continued friendship with Kim D. Caroline presses Teresa about why she would remain friends with Kim given her involvement in the Posche Fashion Show set-up with Melissa Gorga last season.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is pedaling a book about life lessons and this season she is back in her role as Mama Manzo, Mrs. Fix-It! as she counsels the Gorgadices on mending their family. Well apparently – and it's totally no surprise – there is a hidden agenda.
The prosecutor did not reveal what the new evidence is, but reportedly the Real Housewives of New Jersey star was captured ON CAMERA (and not by Bravo!) at the DMV in the process of obtaining the fraudulent license using his brother Pete's identification.
Joe maintains his innocence and his attorney has rejected several plea deals put forth by the prosecution insisting his client is being unfairly made an example of because of celebrity and will not serve actual jail time related to the incidents.
Yesterday Teresa Giudice wrote an open-letter to the tabloids lambasting them for making accusations about Jr. Mafia Jailbird Joe's alleged cheating ways. Proving that Stand By Your Man is on repeat on the iPod, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star insists there is no truth to the rumors and furthermore threatened to sue organizations making accusations!
Several media outlets – from the littlest to the hugest - have reported on Joe's purported adultery, a situation not helped by some seriously unflattering footage of him in Napa last season andJacqueline Laurita's accusations at the reunion. There's also been photos of Joe with other women, although nothing incriminating!
It's speculated that Teresa is attempting some damage control before a really juicy (pun intended) tabloid story emerges later this week that will contain further allegations and photographs of Joe in a compromising situation.
