If you live in the Garden State, spend far above your means, and at least eighty percent of your wardrobe contains sequins and/or faux fur, you could possibly be a Real Housewife of New Jersey. If you're racing your former friends and family members to the top of the New York Times Bestseller List, you are on Bravo's short list for sure!
Depending on what floats your boat, there's a book penned by a RHONJ star that is just right for you. Do you like sampling new Fabulicious recipes? I think we all know that Teresa Giudice has you covered. Is party planning one of your hobbies? Pick up a copy of Dina Manzo's new book. Is TMI in the bedroom the kind of juicy gossip you crave? Look no further than Melissa Gorga to dish on her relationship with Poison! And, of course, if you want straight talk, Caroline Manzo is going to tell it like it is in her new tome. It looks like this Bravo franchise has the book market cornered!
Speaking of, last night's episode starts as Big Ang is prepping for her Christmas party. Even without Renee and Love, she knows things are going to be jolly! Drita arrives and is floored by Ang's hot pink and silver tree. Ang fills her in on Ramona's engagement, and Drita can't believe that Ramona is considering getting married to someone who could be spending decades behind bars. She wouldn't wish that fate on her worst enemy…and her worst enemy used to be Ramona! Karen is the next guest to show up, decked in a feather boa and a Santa hat. Ramona arrives next. Drita is glad to know that Love won't be in attendance because of her issues with Carla.
When Karen learns that Renee isn't ready to be around Carla, she is excited. Karen was only ever nice to Carla because she was Renee's friend. Ang teases Carla for being late, and Karen and Ramona give her the cold shoulder. The tension is awkward, and Karen breaks the ice by telling Carla that Renee isn't there because of her. She is being double teamed by Karen and Ramona, and Ang doesn't think it's any of their business. Carla wants to know why everyone has such an issue with the butter knife…it's not like she was wielding a machete. When Karen asks Drita's opinion, Drita says that if anyone waved a knife at her, she'd shove it where the sun don't shine. Ramona loves Drita's response.
This time she stayed for about a week. As soon as she returned to civilization – if you can call twitter civilization – Jenelle hopped on twitter to get in a fight with ex-husband who still loves publicity her, Courtland Rogers for spending time with his babymama, Taylor Lewis.
Let's break this down!
First up, Jenelle flees rehab again:
“Jenelle just needed to spend some time trying to figure things out,” a source tells RadarOnline. “She doesn’t think she really needs it. She’s ready to live her life like a normal person not on drugs or dealing with the crappy guys who were around her.”
Last night the ladies ofReal Housewives of Atlanta took their bickering and kill'em with kindness values to Las Vegas where things got um… well things got as invasive as a gynecological exam. There were strip clubs, Bedroom Kandi parties, and a marriage intervention with Porsha Stewart because apparently being a prude is so last season, right NeNe Leakes?
Things begin with Cynthia Bailey and Kenya Moore swapping moisturizer (Kenya doesn't want to be called "ashy feet" again!) and discussing dinner the night before as they pack for Vegas. Apparently the two are now BFF… when did this happen? I mean that's fine but didn't they hate each other a few episodes ago and now all of the sudden Cynthia is the only person Kenya can trust on this show?
Anyway, Kenya doesn't feel comfortable explaining to the other women that the reason she and Walter Jackson broke up is because the whole relationship was fake to begin with and he was tired of people around town actually thinking he would wife that. Mmmm-mmmmm! Walter is not about to ring Krayonce. He is not some hillbilly Kroy Biermann who is going to get run over by the Gold Digger Express.
Apparently a television personality is going to start showing the Kardashians some love…although it's more about getting talk show guests than actually wanting to play nice. Chelsea Handler is turning over a new leaf, and she's not going to be bashing the fame hungry family. That's right. She and Kris Jenner have called a truce on their public, two-year feud.
Just to maintain order in the universe, whenever someone backs the Kardashians, another person must bash them. If we don't maintain this balance, who knows what could happen to the planet? In other Kardashian news, some long lost relatives of Kris Humphries are breaking the family's silence on his never ending divorce from Kim Kardashian. His aunt and uncle are opening up on what they think of the 72 day union, as well as Kris' motives for wanting it annulled.
Joe and Melissa Gorga took their family to see the circus this weekend and it made an impression on Melis. She joked on Twitter, "I'm quitting reality and joining the circus;.) @bravoandy pls note;.)."
It wouldn't be much of a career change – RHONJ is definitely a three-ring circus most days: sequin covered costumes, death-defying acts (often featuring your family members), clowns, traveling with wild animals and more!
