Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
Melissa and Joe Gorga threw a lavish party for their only daughter and celebrated with the attendance of several of their RHONJ costars. Somewhere else in NJ, Teresa and Joe Giudice celebrated Gabriella's special day. No word on how many thousands of pounds of lace were deployed to throw the whole thing together.
Teresa says the same day affairs were a coincidence and simply a matter of churches choosing the dates of the celebrations. I'm assuming the Gorgas and the Giudices attend different churches. Teresa did not attendAntonia's celebration.
Antonia's event was held at The Brownstone. I hope they didn't serve BLK Water. Photos of Antonia's celebration are below! Teresapromises photos of Gabriella's Communion are coming soon!
"I didn't know what I was getting myself into," Teresa says of deciding to put her family on television for Real Housewives of New Jersey. "There's good and bad that comes with it." Teresa says her cookbook (and her new food line) are definitely the good.
The bad? Exposing all her personal issues to the world; including her financial messes, her marital troubles and her family dysfunction!
However, Teresa is adamant everything is "good" with Joe Giudice, as he prepares for his trial and that the girls are all doing well. "We've been married 13-years and still going strong," she maintains.
Jacs posed on the red carpet with recording artist Lori Michaels and interior designer (and TV personality) Vanessa Deleon. Jacqueline shared a table with Lori, who performed at the event. Jacqueline was a big fan by the end of the performance, Tweeting out to Lori: "Love you! XOXO! You sang amazing!"
With the launch of her new cookbook, Fabulicious!: On the Grill: Teresa's Smoking Hot Backyard Recipes, Teresa Giudice is hard at work promoting it (and her new olive oil)! Here's the Real Housewives of New Jersey star attending a book signing at Mendham Books in New Jersey yesterday, the official release day. Today she'll be making an appearance on Wendy Williams and on The Couch show.
Mrs. Juicy's book is whipping some book-selling butt on Amazon.
A recent report allegedly revealed the salaries of Bravo's Housewives and claimed that Jacquelineearns far less than her Real Housewives of New Jersey peers! Considering her winemouth revealed the S4 finale spoiler months before it aired and she skipped the travesty of a S3 reunion, we're inclined to believe she's not raking in the big bucks. And of course, there's all her recent financial troubles…
Jacqueline made it known on twitter that she actually like earns a lot more money than the reported $275,000!
Through the bulk of the filming the status quo fights of the last two seasons continued, but somewhere in the middle of things the show took an abrupt left turn and the ladies started to work hard to patch things up.
I'm not complaining – even if it is totally fake! Our source shares that although the Gorgdice family has suffered some serious damage, the desire to make amends is very real. Teresa Giudice and her parents are making an ardent effort to at least get along with Melissa Gorga because they care about Poison and want to be a part of his life. Well, that's how family works y'all! Or at least should…
