Melissa Gorga's new modus operandi seems to be a different day, a different recollection, a different excuse! Recently her book Love Italian Style came under fire for promoting some not so fabulous advice.
Melissa sat down with Vh1's The Buzz to discuss the show and her latest attempt to get attention book;claiming she wanted "controversy" to get people talking about the book. Likening herself to Miley Cyrus, Melissa brags, "She wanted controversy, her plan worked!" So, is that stuff what Melissa actually does in her marriage or she just wanted to sell books? Just. stop. tawking.
That's hot cool. I don't even know what I'm allowed to say anymore. With all these celebrities reality stars trademarking things left and right. Now, the Real Housewives of New York are jumping on the bandwagon.
Ramona Singer, LuAnn deLesseps, and Jill (remembah me?) Zarin have all trademarked their names, as well as some more interesting ideas. What's next? I'll have to drop a dollar in the tip jar every time I type out Pinot Singer? Will I actually have to spend money to buy class?
Last night on The Real Housewives of Miami, Adriana de Moura turned off her co-stars by sending out her wedding invitations via email. And not just any old E-vite…one with detailed instructions on what to wear, what not to wear and an inspiration board to get them started!
Adriana took to her Bravo blog to defend her wedding decisions, "Welcome to the 21st century! Yes, I had an Evite for my wedding, because we all live on our computers, tablets, smart phones, etc. Who needs a printed invite when nobody cares about that anymore? Besides we need to save trees and think of our impact on the environment as well." Fellow Real Housewife NeNe Leakes apparently agrees with her, as she did the same thing.
Still together, the engaged couple has settled into a "normal" life in Dallas now that the reality TV offers have dried up. Sean and Catherine are hoping one more offer will roll in though – a free televised wedding of course!
"We've always said our relationship started on TV, so we may as well solidify it on TV," saidSean. "Hopefully we'll have a date sometime soon."
Sean continued, "A free wedding is always a good thing. You can create the wedding of your dream – all her dreams – then you don't have to sit back and worry about the budget and freak out about stuff like that."
Joanna Krupa and Romain finally had a breakthrough in their relationship. Adriana de Mouracontinuedto be insane by insisting her wedding guests dress pure and innocent as angels, newborn fawns, and daisies at her sham re-wedding, which is anything but fresh as the first snow.
Joanna has Lisa Hochstein over for dinner. Joanna doesn't cook or use dishes so she serves sushi and soup out of the restaurant takeout boxes. I was getting the BPA heebie-jeebies watching them drink miso out of the big plastic cartons. The food doesn't really matter since the wine is the main course.
Suzie reveals to real Tami that she took Lil' Tami with her to confront Tasha. The women find it very fishy that Tasha referred to the women as "angry birds" even though she claimed to not have anything to do with the blog stories. Even after flipping Tasha's hat off of her head, the women decide that it's Suzie who is owed an apology first. Tami always has the little guy's back. She is such a champion for the underdog!
Evelyn has a meeting for her clothing line Vida Lux. It's like loungewear meets the wardrobe department of Kids, Incorporated (you know, back when Fergalicious was just plain ol' Stacey). She's waxing on about patterns and colors and the gap that big bootys create in the waistband of some jeans. Evelyn wants to think international. Her maxi dresses plan to take over the world! Later Suzie calls Evelyn so that she can continue to relive the swat-fest with Tasha.
From now until February (when her federal fraud trial begins), Teresa Giudice is throwing herself into her work.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has been packing her schedule with appearances and events and this past weekend was no exception. Teresa headed off to Philly to meet 'n greet with fans attending the Philadelphia Bridal Expo. Teresa signed copies of all four of her cookbooks and posed for pictures with fans.
While Teresa was in Philly, Melissa Gorga was in Atlantic City to sign copies of her "controversial" new book "Love Italian Style".
