Real Housewives of New Jersey

While the third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey doesn’t premiere until a few more months, Teresa Giudice is now speaking out on the upcoming season in a new video interview with Perez Hilton.

In the brief interview, Teresa also discusses her feelings on Danielle Staub, the infamous shoving of Andy Cohen at the reunion show and her other projects in the works such as opening up a new restaurant.

On Former Costar Danielle Staub – “She would say things that were not nice like ‘don’t call me honey,’ like really? My reaction was is bitch better? You know, like for instance the table flip, she said to me ‘pay attention please,’ like who are you to tell me to pay attention. Are you serious?”  Teresa added, “Like you can’t just expect to say whatever you want to people. You’re going to get a reaction out of them.”

Feelings On Danielle Today – “You know, like I have no grudges to hold towards Danielle. You know, I wish her all the best,” said Teresa. So is she happy Danielle isn’t coming back for the third season? “It didn’t phase me at all. To tell you the truth, I kind of miss her,” replied Teresa with a laugh.

On Shoving Andy Cohen -  “I mean I love him. It was not something I meant to do. I think he got in the middle or something and you know, at that moment…” When asked if Andy was surprised at how strong she was, Teresa replied, “Yes he was. He was like ‘wow you’re strong.’ I have good guns.”  And by guns, she meant her arms.

On Season 3 & Sis-in-law Melissa Gorga Joining The Cast – “Well you’re going to have to watch and see. I’m definitely going to be on.”  Teresa coyly added, “If anything, I had to go see a lot more family. Let’s say that.”

On Other Projects -  Teresa revealed she’s coming out with her second book in May called Fabulicious, calling the new book “straight up Italian.”  Teresa also shared she and hubby Joe Giudice are opening up a new restaurant, something she called “a great Italian restaurant.”

Bravo has yet to officially announce the premiere date of Real Housewives of New Jersey season 3 but it’s expected to debut sometime in May.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO A SEASON 3 OF THE JERSEY HOUSEWIVES?

It seems Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey who is mostly known for flipping a table and filing bankruptcy, does not want her daughters to turn out like her other Jersey counterparts.

In a brief interview with Popeater, Teresa reveals she doesn’t want any of her four daughters to end up like the Jersey Shore kids aka Snooki.

The reasons? Teresa states she hears the girls on the MTV hit show “sleep around” a lot. “No, I don’t want them to act like the Jersey Shore kids,” said Teresa. “I hear that they sleep around. I don’t want my daughters sleeping around.”

And when it comes to the biggest misconception about her, Teresa reveals — “I’m really a business woman. I’m a mom, wife and business woman.”

The interview took place following Teresa’s sold-out speaking engagement at The Learning Annex in NYC this week, titled “An Evening With Teresa Giudice.” If you recall, the seminar which cost $44.95 per person, was originally titled “How to Have It All,” but was ultimately given a new title after much snickering from fans of the show who wondered if having it all included bankruptcy and being investigated for fraud.

According to NorthJersey.com, below are some of the highlights of Teresa’s seminar -

  • Before she had her oldest daughter, 10-year-old Gia, and became a “housewife,” Teresa revealed she worked for Macy’s as an assistant buyer, then associate buyer, then became a sales rep for 9 West and Calvin Klein handbags.
  • Her second cookbook, “Fabulicious!” is due out May 4.
  • She regrets the commercial she did for Sizzle Tan, calling it “a terrible mistake,” adding that Brad Pitt did a chicken commercial early on.
  • When the cameras aren’t rolling, the cast member she hangs with the most is Jacqueline Laurita.
  • Teresa doesn’t want any more children, but husband Joe wants one more. “I really want to get my tubes tied. Maybe next season.”

Teresa’s second cookbook coming out in May indicates the 3rd season of the NJ housewives will be airing in May. And when it came to her financial and legal woes with hubby Joe Giudice, Teresa didn’t really want to talk about it instead stating “there’s always going to be haters out there.”

Despite winning a $260,000 ruling against his former business partner Joe Giudice for forging his name on a $1 mil mortgage loan and then pocketing the money, it seems Joe Mastropole is not too optimistic he will be able to retrieve a penny of the amount owed to him.

In a new interview with RadarOnline, Mastropole feels his ruling is bittersweet because he doesn’t believe Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and her hubby Joe will cough up the money. In fact, Mastropole refers to Joe’s money as “untraceable.”

“I’m disappointed because she’s [Teresa] the one making income and his money is fraudulent, untraceable and untaxed,” Mastropole told Radar.“She’s the only one bringing money in right now… You can’t really go after him.”

Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem Mastropole will be able to go after Teresa either as a judge dismissed the fraud claims made against her last December.

As reported yesterday, Judge Morris Stern ruled that the money owed to Mastropole be excepted from the Guidice’s $11 million bankruptcy discharge. “Even though I’m an exception to his discharge, I think his money is untraceable so it will be hard for me to recover any debt,” added Mastropole.

In other NJ news, the Luxist is reporting that former NJ Housewife Danielle Staub’s new show will be making it’s debut Wednesday, February 9th on Wealth TV.

It seems the show, titled ‘Social,’ will follow Danielle as she tours the home of wealthy Z-listers. Four episodes of the show have been shot with the network planing two seasons of the show — a total of 26 episodes. In each episode, Danielle will introduce viewers to a “celebrity” with a tour of their home.

One of the “celebrities” that will appear on this season is said to be Ivan L. Wilzig. And no, we’ve never heard of him either. As a matter of fact, we don’t even know what a Wealth TV is. Seriously, what is this network? I have Direct TV, do I have it? Do you all have it? Does anyone have it? Does it exist? Anyone? Help anyone?

More money troubles for the bankrupt Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

According to a new RadarOnline report, a NJ judge has ordered Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice to pay $260,000 to his former business partner Joe Mastropole.

This all stems from a lawsuit filed by Mastropole in which he accused Joe of forging his signature on a mortgage loan and then pocketing $1 million from that loan. Judge Morris Stern reportedly found Joe, who he described as lacking credibility, guilty of forging the signature.

According to the judge, Joe will have to pay his former business partner the $260k in spite of his legal claim for bankruptcy protection.

“The signing of Mastropole’s name was a forgery… exhibiting willfulness and malice toward a former friend and current adversar,” Judge Stern wrote in his judgment, handed down in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Newark on Monday. “The extraordinary web of lies and misrepresentations woven by Giudice to implement and cover his misconduct reflects on his approach to business matters and suggest his disregard for legal restraints which would bind others.”

Moving on to other NJ news, despite her unwillingness to confirm or deny her return to the Real Housewives of New Jersey on the Bravo New Year’s Eve special, Popeater is echoing what we suspected all along, which is that Dina Manzo will not be returning to the Bravo hit show.

Dina however tells the site that her TV career is far from over. “You’ll see my face pop up on TV in the near future. I’m working on something very exciting, but it’s not reality TV,” says Dina who adds that she’s “happier than ever” since quitting the show. Though we’re not really sure what storyline Dina would have had after her ex-husband reportedly refused to allow their daughter Lexi to continue filming, in addition to her current husband, Tommy Manzo, who has also refused to do the show.

“I love them all. They’re great. The show just wasn’t for me. I’m a private person,” added Dina, who has appeared on two national reality shows in the past couple of years.

A special thanks to you for being a Reality Tea reader! No stories today or a photo post as there were not really enough photos to make one. Who knew reality stars took time off from fame whoring?

So thanks to a suggestion by our reader Carol, we decided to create two polls to see who your favorite and least favorite Bravo housewives are?

[poll id="27"] [poll id="28"]

TELL US – WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE & LEAST FAVORITE HOUSEWIFE & WHY?

Has hell frozen over? Above is a photo of Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga looking rather chummy.

After it was reported earlier this year that Melissa had signed on to join the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey, sources immediately informed us that the two ladies do not get along – at all. In fact, just two months ago, it was reported that Teresa and her hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at the christening ceremony of Melissa’s son. Joe reportedly punched Teresa’s brother/Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga, leading to an all out fight between the men and some other party guests.

According to RadarOnline, the two sister-in-laws seem to have put the bad blood behind them, well at least for now. The above photo was taken at Melissa’s Christmas party which took place on Saturday night. “Teresa may have ignored some guests,” said a source. “But Melissa and Teresa got along great and had a lot of fun dancing together.”

Also in attendance at the party was Jacqueline Laurita and hubby Chris, Caroline and Al Manzo, Kim G., and the other new NJ housewife Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s first cousin.

All signs point to this party marking the end of filming for the Real Housewives of NJ’s 3rd season. Melissa also tweeted the following this morning – “Time to wrap……..” Perhaps she’s just referring to wrapping gifts. From what we have heard, the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives will be explosive! With a lot of drama that will have you saying Danielle who? Bravo has yet to officially announce the airing date.

In other NJ news, Danielle Staub continues her attempt to stay relevant in the press. The latest is an interview with RadarOnline, in which she reveals her new year’s resolution is to have her former NJ costars “stop being mean girls!”

She adds, “Collectively stop being mean girls and resolve to be nice to everyone. Period. There is a much better existence.” Danielle also claims “I tried to [make amends] when I said goodbye at the reunion, when I walked away and quit.” Umm shouldn’t she be busy filming her “spin-off show?”  More photos from the party below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA & MELISSA? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE 3RD SEASON OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES AS MUCH AS WE ARE?

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

Teresa Giudice and husband Joe Giudice found themselves yet again in a New Jersey courtroom on Wednesday, and no, it had nothing to do with the bankruptcy fraud charges they are facing, but more to do with Joe’s former business partner accusing him of fraud.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars are being sued by Joe’s former business partner Joe Mastropole who accused Joe of forging his signature on a mortgage document in order to take out another loan and keep $1 million for himself.

While in court, the bankruptcy issue came up and Teresa testified that she had no idea her husband Joe was declaring bankruptcy, while also admitting that he forged her name behind her back on court papers detailing their financial woes. Joe’s defense was that everybody does and he didn’t think it was a big deal.

According to the NY Post, Teresa was unhappy about the bankruptcy questions and at one point during her cross examination, she sniped at the judge, “What does my bankruptcy have to do with this?”

It didn’t end there as the Post also reports Teresa was then seen outside of the courtroom arguing with a woman, who she accused of leaking information. RadarOnline adds that the woman Teresa was arguing with was Monica Ciccone, the wife of William Saracino Jr., the lawyer representing Mastropole. While in the courtroom, Teresa reportedly pointed to Monica saying, “You and me gotta talk!”

Then in the hallway, Monica was engaged in a conversation with another person when Teresa interrupted saying adamantly to Monica, “I need to talk to you!” Monica denied her request saying, “I don’t have to talk to you, we both have lawyers,” which reportedly made Teresa irate. She then jumped in Monica’s face, pointing her finger and yelling, “You need to stop telling people my business!”

Monica retorted by calling Teresa a bully. The war of words continued back and forth until Joe pulled Teresa away to get in the elevator. RadarOnline adds that as the doors closed, Joe was overheard saying in frustration, “I’m f**king tired of this TV sh*t!” Interesting.

Some good news though for Teresa. The judge dismissed the fraud charge against her in the case though Joe was not cleared. The judge however added that the dismissal may not fully exonerate Teresa as there still may be a breach of contract issue.

While Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, was able to escape the humility of a public auction, it seems her home items are still up for sale.

If you recall, Teresa and husband Joe Giudice filed for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million in debt.  Back in July of this year, a judge ordered the Giudices to auction off most of their home items as a means to recoup some money for their debtors.  Those items included a grand piano, LCD TV, stainless steel gas range, bedroom furniture, and even her kids’ bedroom sets and toys.

The Giudices’ attorney was however able to get the public auction canceled in October.  RadarOnline is now reporting the private sale is underway.

Even more interesting, the Giudices have put in their own minimum bid of $54,405 in hopes of retaining their valuables.  Meaning anyone who wishes to own Teresa’s home items would have to pay at least $54,406.  So basically Teresa and Joe get to keep their items if the judge approves the price and no other parties outbid them.

Teresa’s attorney James Kridel tells RadarOnline that anyone who puts in an offer would be doing it for the wrong reasons.  “In my opinion, it would have to be out of spite or out of ignorance,” he said. “Because whereas my mattress might be worth the replacement cost to me, it’s probably worth almost nothing to someone else, so the real value of it would be ridiculous.”

Mounting legal troubles continue to remain an issue for Teresa and Joe. As we reported last month, the couple is required to stand trial on July 14 & 15, 2011 for charges relating to bankruptcy fraud.  They are accused of concealing assets and hiding income in their bankruptcy filing.

A pre-trial has been set for Dec 14th, 2010.
