Right off the bat Melissa wants to clear up that she did let her kids stay to have cake at Gia's party even though the editing looked as if she didn't stick around. I can say that seeing all of the photos from the event, Melissa was definitely there with her kids for a long time. She was in the photos through many stages of the evening, so they really whittled down the birthday party footage/drama.
Melissa shared, "I did let my kids have cake and then we got out of there." When Andy commented how nice it was to see Kim D. back on the scene, Melissa replies, "Yes, isn't that wonderful?" in a heavily sarcastic tone. She then explains that things are good with her and Kim.
Teresa Giudicecelebrated Gia's birthday back in January and the photos seemed to tell the story of a scuffle between Teresa and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. We now know that the argument is over Teresa and Joey's father, Giacinto Gorga. Papa Gorga was hospitalized back in November and Teresa is "interrogizing" Melissa about if and when she paid a visit to her father-in-law. Melissa swears she's visited him soon after, but Teresa insists it wasn't until four days later. Melissa then adds in that she waited because of a sore throat. They can't even agree on what day Papa G was admitted. Let the petty shenanigans of season 5 begin!
The recent rumors suggest that Joe got caught with the nanny. How cliche! No one will be surprised to hear that Caroline Manzo is offering up her thoughts on the situation. It would be more surprising if she just remained mum!
Melissa repeated once again that she is not moving because of Teresa and her family, emphatically denying that it was her reason for wanting to sell her house. She also noted that Antonia and Milania are taking cheerleading lessons together.
Also interesting was Caroline's response when Sherri asked her if Al cheated early on in their marriage, since it felt that she was almost saying it in her book. I had to rewind twice to see if I was understanding Caroline's response. It sounds to me like she's saying he didn't cheat and neither has she. #confused
Take a look at the video clips below and tell me if you agree?
The ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey have a new story to peddle this season – they're all getting along. Finally! In a new interview the entire cast sits down to discuss how they deal with the show, what's happened to bring peace, and remind us that there is still much, much more drama to come.
Oh they also talk cheatin' spouses…
"It's crazy when it comes on because there's a lot said that you don't see that's filmed, and then we've come so far from where we were in the beginning, so it's very hard to rewatch the beginning but you just have to remember it was before the makeup and before everything got better in all of our situations," Melissa Gorgatells the Associated Press.
In her first installment, Kim talks about her friendships with both Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita, and of course hints at some major upcoming drama. Yay!
"At the beginning of last year my mother was diagnosed very suddenly with lung cancer. It was one of the hardest times in my life I have ever had to go through. Both Teresa and Jacqueline were there for me every step of the way during that horrible period," Kim begins.
