During the show, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy Cohen, “I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce. So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t.”
Dina replied, “That’s not true. Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. I wanted to meet with my brother more than anything.” In response, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy, “Chris Laurita favorited my tweet. He knows the truth.” and “I still have our text messages that I can show you.” Does anyone delete texts?
Dina Manzo was a guest on Watch What Happens Live tonight after part 1 of the lost footage episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. It was fairly uneventful but Andy did shed a little light on what we can expect to hear from Dina at the reunion – like addressing her family issues once and for all.
Andy jumped right in, “You were more verbal about your family situation at the jersey reunion than I’ve heard you be – ever.” Dina responded, “Because I’ve kept my mouth shut all these years and that didn’t help, so I thought maybe if I talk this will go away.”
Andy tried to ask about her relationship with Caroline because it seems to Andy like that Dina sounded hopeful that it could be mended. Dina laughs, “Do you ask Caroline these questions when she’s on?” He confirms, “I do!” He added that Dina made it seem at the reunion like there’s a resolution with Caroline in the future. Dina replies, “Yeah, she’s my sister.”
In the first one Teresa attempts to explain what she meant by “I don’t understand why this is happening to us.” She also tries to plead her case about her respect for the law and how she’s going to pay back the $400,000. In the second video they take a few calls from viewers. And she goes on and on again with the ‘victim’ stance of how the biggest lesson she learned from this whole mess is to never sign things without asking an attorney to explain them. She also talks about how this is just a blip in time and they’ll get through this and move on with life.
When a caller asked for Tamar‘s opinion on Kenya‘s music, she shared, “She sings? No shade! I think I heard [Gone with the Wind Fabulous] in the club one time. I didn’t know it was a serious record. No shade. Well, I can’t lie, she’s not my favorite. Something about the thirst of it all. She’s a pretty girl. It’s just, like, the pageant thing kind of reeks.” Tamar admitted that NeNe Leakes is her girl.
I’m sure I wasn’t the only one watching the Real Housewives of Atlanta star’s social media accounts for a reaction. And Kenya delivered!
Andy Cohen is releasing another memoir and it’s due to hit shelves next month. To celebrate the release of “The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year”, the Watch What Happens Live host sat down with Glamour Magazine to share his thoughts on how to have a happy life and we have a few excerpts from the article, including giving props to his friendships withNeNe Leakes and Bethenny Frankel.
DO know: You’re your own worst critic: “When Christina Hendricks and Dylan McDermott were on my show [in October 2013], I felt like everything I said didn’t come out right or landed with a thud. When I have off shows, I have to remind myself that my experience of what just happened was only my experience. It’s never as intense for everyone else as it is for you.”
Victoria’s rep Steve Honig reached out to share that she did NOT get paid for her guest appearance on the show. “Victoria did not get paid for her appearance on RHONJ, so she didn’t do anything for money. ” He continued, “And as far as her being a liar, well, we have a polygraph test that says otherwise.”
Andy commented and asked Teresa Aprea if she felt bad about her scene with the “clink clink” karma diss, saying she took a lot of heat over it on Twitter for “kicking”Teresa Giudice when she’s down. Teresa A says she did feel bad and that the two of them are okay at the moment. “I did apologize. It came from a place of anger. It was mean, it was a little harsh. So, I did apologize and I did address the situation.” Teresa G sees the clip for the first time at the reunion and Teresa Aprea admits that Tre was pissed.
We start off taking a stroll down memory lane with clips of Slade from when he started in season one of the show. And then Andy shared a hilarious montage of clips of Tamra Barney (now Judge) slamming Gretchen.
Gretchen says “Tamra Barney has lost all credibility with everyone, including the viewers. She’s the biggest lying, manipulating, conniving, narcissistic sociopath. And I say she’s a sociopath because sociopaths don’t even realize that they do anything wrong. All they do is blame everyone else for their mistakes and that’s all she continues to do and the viewers saw it last season.”
