It's always fun to hear stories about fan encounters with celebrities – especially reality TV stars because they are so much more unfiltered than your typical celebs. Sometimes it pains me to find out a favorite star is a complete diva or jerk (I won't mention any names), but it gives us a twinge of hope when a celeb is cool. One of our readers (user name Desiday) shared her recent Real Housewives of New Jersey encounter with us and gave us permission to post it – along with her great photos! Desiday met up with Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Albie Manzo and Chris Laurita at a blk. water tasting and meet 'n greet this past weekend in L.A. Desiday lucked out and before any crowds arrived, she was able to hang out with the RHONJ crew and get some juicy deets!
Casting speculation over Real Housewives of New Jersey has been rampant lately. Who's in, who's out, who's new, who's possibly returning after being dead for seasons soap opera style. Several sources have promised all the originals will be coming back, but that some new "friends" of Teresa Giudice are joining the cast!
The newest name to be tossed into the ring is Jennifer Dalton. Jennifer is a real estate agent at Sotheby's and is married to a prominent (and uber wealthy) New Jersey real estate developer and is reportedly a friend of both Teresa and Dina Manzo. She attended Teresa's Fabellini launch last season.
Jennifer has already been vetted by Bravo and appeared on Pregnant in Heels last season. And just who attended her baby shower which was filmed for the show? None other than Teresa andKim D!
Guess what, y'all? Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice isn't divorcing Juicy Joe after Christmas! She's waiting for Groundhog's Day…it's more appropriate. Not that I thought all the rumors were a publicity stunt or anything, cough, cough. Of course Teresa is on hand to debunk any divorce gossip that may be heading her way. I can't say I blame her.
At a recent NephCure fundraiser, Teresa was quick to put the kibosh on any talk that she and Joe were heading in different directions. I'll be honest….I never thought that Teresa would engage in such a public divorce. She knows where her bread is buttered. No, it's not with Joe, but it's with the publicity she gets as a reality star who is married to someone whose relationship often makes or breaks the tabloids. Tre has to be totally exhausted.
I know, I know…all of these ladies are wearing on our last nerves. However, Caroline is promising to come back for next season with a positive attitude, and she has no time for the negativity that may surround the potential comeback of Danielle (not happening!) or the ensuing drama that swirls around her nemesis Teresa. Why are we still listening to any of these women? Oh yeah, it is mildly entertaining to hear them trade passive aggressive barbs in the tabloids. 'Tis the season!
Tom MurroaskedJacqueline what motivated her to return to the show when she seemed so unhappy during the reunion and with her co-stars. Jacqueline's response: "Several things make me stay, contracts and the money of course, but also because I know my son will get so much help and support from others."
"As much as this helps us, we can help others in a big way," Jacqueline added. "We can use the platform to raise awareness and do so much good."
On a recent episode of Real Housewives of Miami, Joe Francis was heard accusingJoanna Krupa of sleeping with Mohamed. Well now a new report accuses Joanna of being the blame for breaking up Yolanda and Mohamed's marriage!
It's well known that Joanna has quite the past (or at least there are many accusations leading that way), but is she really a homewrecking harlot? I dare say this may be our first case of cross-cities Housewives feuding, but I can't wait until Andy Cohen books these two on an appearance for WWHL together!
Is she, isn't she, is she, isn't she? Is this like that game he loves me, he loves me not with the boy in question beingAndy Cohen? Apparently so! For a man who only loves a lady with a sidepony, he certainly has girls of all hair styles throwing themselves his way.
Well, after much speculation, RadarOnline is reportingDanielle was actually meeting with Andy to discuss the possibility of her doing a one-on-one Watch What Happens Live special alaJill Zarin's 'Look, I be crazy' segment. How great would that be?!?
Our favorite celeb journalist Tom Murro spilled some hot tea on the upcoming season's casting and filming. Tom's source shared this juicy tidbit (juicy, but it gives us the serious sads), "All of the Housewives are back for the 5th season. Danielle has NOT been asked back and Kim D has not been given a contract, but has a small role (and not that of a Housewife). Teresa has friends they they have asked to film with her but not offered contracts yet or to be Housewives."
