In attendance was Melissa Gorga, while Teresa’s brother Joe Giudice did not attend. The party included a dance featuring both Gia and Milania. More photos from the party below!
Meanwhile, our RHONJ insider tells us that Teresa continues her attempt to push Gia into the spotlight. “Teresa has always been desperate to have Gia in the limelight,” the source tells Reality Tea. “She wanted her to model, that didn’t work out. She wanted her to sing, that didn’t work out. Now, she has Gia in a ‘dance’ group.”
Our source continues that guests were shocked at Gia’s dance outfit. “Guests at her daughter’s birthday party were disturbed by the outfits Gia wore. She is just a little girl. Teresa dresses her like she is 16. People were shocked,” says the insider.
As for the drama that took place between Melissa and Teresa at the party, the Wetpaint blog is now confirming something did go down between the two sisters-in-law!
A source tells Wetpaint the drama began when Teresa would not even allow Melissa to be photographed. Indeed, Melissa was not pictured in any of the professional photos taken at the party. “When a photographer went over to ask Teresa if he could take a picture of Melissa, Teresa said ‘no,’ ” says the source.
Despite getting the cold shoulder from Tre, the source reveals Melissa still tried to have a good time at the party, spending most of the night with her mother-in-law. “She said ‘hello’ to Joe Giudice. He was nice, and Melissa was nice right back to him. Milania and Antonia [one of Melissa’s kids] were hugging and dancing the whole time. ”
Teresa reportedly looked annoyed watching Melissa and decided to approach her while others were getting ready to leave. “Teresa started to get loud, and you could see Melissa was struggling to keep the scene low-key, because her youngest son, Joey, was in her arms,” says the source. Yikes!
As for why non-juicy Joe wasn’t in attendance, he was reportedly upset that Teresa did not invite him to the private family party she had for Gia in early January. Doesn’t seem like the Giudice/Gorga feud will be ending anytime soon!

When Kim Kardashian decided to file for divorce from Kris Humphries after a mere 72-days of marriage, I’m sure she never, ever, anticipated the fallout. It’s pretty much nuclear at this point for the 31-year-old reality star, as almost every aspect of her life has come plummeting down around her. Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on how you look at it), things are potentially about to get much worse for Kim!
But first reports are circulating that the desperate for love and attention Kim is shacking up with NY Jets Quarterback Mark Sanchez. Is there a professional athlete Kim hasn’t boinked?! No wonder Tebowrejected her!
According to the blog TerezOwens, a source reports that Kim was “secretly” dating the NFL player while she was in NYC filming the first season of KKTNY and now that she is done with old Hump things are once again hot and heavy – still in secret, of course – since Mark has a real girlfriend (reportedly model Kate Upton)! “Kim and Mark like to meet in hotels for dinner dates and flings”, a source reports. “Whenever Kim is in New York, they hang out. They are very careful with not being seen together, Mark is seeing someone!”
So are the two serious? “Kim’s just in it for the sex”, says an insider close to Kimmie. “She has her hopes set on a bigger ‘star’ than Sanchez. But for now, he will do.”
Kim is, however, denying any sort of relationship with Mark. Taking to Twitter, Kim claims the rumor is complete BS. “Dating rumors are always fun when u don’t even know the people your supposedly linked to! Who makes this stuff up!”, she wrote. And just in case you’ve forgotten, Kimmie Kakes denied she had a sex tape just weeks before it was “leaked.”
Moving on to Kimmie’s drama with Kris. If you recall, shortly after Kim filed for divorce, Kris retaliated by seeking an annulment claiming “fraud.” Because Kris filed for the annulment, Kim is now legally unable to end her marriage until a judge rules whether or not there is “clear and convincing evidence” that fraud occurred!
Currently there are no divorce talks taking place according to a Humphries family insider, since neither party wants to compromise or withdraw their petition. If Kimmie isn’t careful she could be headed for a very, very public divorce – like televised public. Oooohhhh… some real reality TV from the Kardashians for a change!
Family attorney Vikki Zeigler tells HollywoodLife exclusively that if Kim doesn’t start negotiating with Kris, she will likely find herself in court early this summer. Which would necessitate the many Kardashian family members (and Scott Disick) to testify! Since California has an “open policy on popular court cases,” television cameras will be allowed in the courthouse to capture every minute of Kim attempting to convince a jury that she went into her marriage with the purest of intentions.
Kim’s attorney, the famedLaura Wasser, is attempting to move the marriage dissolution to mediation instead, but Kris is resisting!
Kris believes he has evidence that proves fraud took place and is adamant he thought their marriage was real! According to an insider Kris is certain “Kim had no intention to stay married to him and she just got married to make money. He and his team wouldn’t go forward if they didn’t believe that they could prove this [in court.]”
“Kim was filming scenes saying that she was dissatisfied with her marriage during the week of Sept. 8, which was barely three weeks after the wedding,” says the source. “His team believes that the season of Kourtney and Kim Take New York was developed with the theme of divorce, without Kris being made aware of it.”
Claiming he never knew Kim was feeling unhappy in their relationship, Kris says “he was never in the scenes where they discuss Kim’s unhappiness and he never caught Kim talking to her sisters about being unhappy.” On last week’s season finale Kris was seen searching for Kim while she sat in her dressing room furtively sobbing to her sister. Kris seemed completely in the dark about Kim’s feelings.
“When the pair wasn’t filming, Kim was normal and affectionate to Kris”, the source explains. Additionally, it seems E! edited a scene of Kris to make it look like he was the one talking about divorce.
Kris’ motivation for an open trial is his desire for the public to see the truth about Kim and her dishonest behavior! “Kris wants the world to know how badly he was duped into this sham of a marriage”, a source tells Reality Weekly.
He believes he was fooled from the get-go and cast unwittingly to play a role as the groom to garner Kim attention and a huge payout! “Kris feels he was set up by the Kardashians. He wants to be able to tell his side”, says the insider. “When he married Kim, he thought it was forever, but he realized Kim wasn’t in love with him and now believes he was merely a prop.” Remember, Kim allegedly made an estimated $17M in endorsements, TV specials, photos, and product placements all due to her nuptials. No one knows how much of that money went to Kris, as it was reported he was only eligible for a “limited cut of the wedding money,” per their prenup.
And for all of those who think Kris is stupid, he insists he was well aware of what he was marrying into! “Kris understood that he was committing himself to the Kardashian way of life,” and was not surprised that he would be asked to participate in scripted scenes to further the plot of their shows.
Once Kim filed for divorce, “Kris knew he was going to look like the bad guy on Kourtney and Kim Take New York, but it’s so blatant and over-the-top, it’s just cruel “, says the source.
Vikki Zeigler believes scenes from Kim’s various reality shows could be admissible in court to help prove she had no intention of staying married to Kris! Citing the scene where the couple is discussing where they will live post-filming and Kim basically tries to convince Kris not to move in with her, Vikki believes, “It shows that she never had any intent of doing what a wife is supposed to do — live with her husband.”
And Kris may have another reason for wanting the trial to go public! Allegedly the prenup the couple signed bars Kris from publicly discussing the details of their marriage, including monies earned from the event, “But if a judge grants the divorce on the grounds of fraud,” a source explains, “the prenup is void.” Tell-all time!
So why is Kim willing to risk a public trial over agreeing to an annulment? Her already eviscerated reputation! If Kim admits her marriage was a fraud, she might be liable to pay back some of those vendors who offered services and products for her wedding. Potentially she could face civil suits from others who feel they were duped by Kim’s money grubbing, attention whoring ways!
Whether or not fraud was committed isn’t the only issue the former couple is facing-off over. Kris wants to know just what happened to all those wedding gifts and he believes legally he has a say in what happens to them! Kris wanted her to return all the gifts to their original senders. Kim instead decided to donate the estimated $200,000 the gifts were worth to the Dream Foundation, a charity she supports. Shortly after this promise, reports emerged that Kim had actually exchanged many of those exorbitantly priced gifts for Rolex watches!
Well Kris is still furious that greedykins-Kimmie still won’t return any of the remaining presents – even the very, very pricey ones! “One of the super expensive wedding gifts they received was a Ferrari and he thinks it, like all the other gifts should be returned to its sender,” a source close to Kris reveals. Kris claims he had no control over the gifts because he wasn’t involved in the decision of what to do with them post-wedding – believing his marriage was forever he wasn’t concerned!
“Kris has never seen any of his gifts. He doesn’t have a list of any of the gifts. He feels the gifts are communal property in the marriage and therefore, they should have been at least divided 50/50,” a source tells HollywoodLife. And because Kim isn’t communicating with her ex, he has been learning about her sketchy behaviors through the media and is appalled that she would exchange presents from his family and friends for personal items instead of returning them!
Even worse for Kim, apparently divorce court isn’t the only court Kris is hoping to visit with Kim! Sources are reporting he is looking to file a civil case (aka lawsuit!) against Kimmie for misleading him about her affections. ”Kris thought he was getting married for life and he found out he was getting a divorce on a radio show,” a source contends.

THOUGHTS – WILL KIM’S DIVORCE PROCEEDINGS BE MADE PUBLIC? DOES KRIS HAVE A SAY IN WHAT HAPPENS TO THE WEDDING GIFTS? DO YOU BELIEVE KIM AND MARK ARE A SECRET ITEM?
According to a report by Radar Online, the person behind the twitter handle @Hardboiledpeggs, is a teenage girl from New Jersey. Even more disturbing, Taylor has a book signing scheduled for February 7 in NJ. Security has now been increased in light of the threats.
On Jan. 29, @Hardboiledpeggs tweeted: “See u on February 7 ill be there with a book and a rope so i can kidnap u,” to which Taylor responded by saying: “Don’t ever contact me again.” @Hardboiledpeggs went on to make more alarming threats against Taylor’s daughter Kennedy.
“This was taken very, very seriously. The death threats Taylor and her daughter received are from a teenage girl that lives in New Jersey. The teenager appears to suffer from mental health issues,” a law enforcement source tells Radar. “Taylor is extremely grateful to the FBI for identifying the culprit.”
The source adds, “It was disturbing for Taylor to find out that the girl lives in New Jersey, because of the specific threat she got in regards to her book signing in the Garden state on February 7.” Taylor’s tell all memoir Hiding from Reality: My Story of Love, Loss, and Finding the Courage Withingoes on sale Feb. 7.
And speaking of Taylor’s memoir, her sister-in-law a.k.a Russell Armstrong’syounger sister is once again speaking out against her, calling her a lying gold-digger over her tell all memoir!
Talking to the HollywoodLife blog today, Laurie Kelsoeisn’t buying Taylor’s claims that she is releasing the tell all, six months after Russell’s passing, to help inspire other abused women. Laurie believes Taylor’s motivation is all about money.
“Taylor never reached out to my family about writing a book. She’s a gold digger; that’s why she wrote the book,” says Laurie. “I don’t think Taylor took into consideration what [effect] a book like this would have on Russell’s children! Her decision to write this book was purely motivated by money, but she is pretending that it’s about helping other women. What about helping her own family?!”
Laurie adds that she is more upset over the damage being done to Russell’s reputation as he is no longer here to defend himself. “It’s the utmost disrespect…my mom is heartbroken. It’s such a disgrace and embarrassment,”says Laurie. “Even if what Taylor wrote is true, why does she have to come out with a book about my brother now, so soon?”
Moving on to Lisa Vanderpump, who’s spinoff show unfortunately is a no go. According to Radar Online, Bravo has decided to pass on Lisa’s show.
The proposed spinoff, which Lisa filmed a pilot for, was reportedly centered around the ins and outs of one of her restaurants. The show would have followed the chaos surrounding the restaurant, including both the lives of Lisa and her staff.
“Lisa was hoping to follow in the footsteps of New York housewife Bethenny Frankel who had her own successful spin-offs focusing on her wedding and new baby but the network decided not to pick up her show,” a source close to Bravo revealed. With Lisa’s spinoff out of the equation, a return for a RHOBH third season is all but certain!

Marlo, Marlo, Marlo… I’m almost afraid to write anything controversial about Ms. Marlo Hampton because she scares me a little bit. Anyways, last week Marlo showed viewers her true colors feisty side when she went head to head with Sheree Whitfield.
Among the cray-cray accusations flying back and forth between two ladies of questionable means was the suggestion that Marlo has an 80-year-old white sugar daddy and that Sheree has quite the reputation as a shop’n swapper, akaJill Zarin-ing the merchandise by wearing it with the tags on and then returning it!
Well, that got the blogosphere’s ears perked up and several people started investigating just who Ms. Hampton’s allegedly Big Poppas are! The blog Diary Of A Hollywood Street King got the scoop on Marlo’s relationship status, and was told by a source they consider reliable that Marlo is allegedly the mistress to none other than mogul, Atlanta dweller, and CNN founder Ted Turner! Ted, pictured below, while not quite 80, is actually a very dignified 73 – and he is very, very rich.
Now remember this is all alleged information and none of it is to be taken as fact. “Ted Turner was Marlo’s sugar daddy. My understanding is that Marlo is one of the reasons why Jane Fonda divorced Ted Turner,” the insider exposes. “Ted Turner is the ‘sponsor’ who financed the The Red Carpet Boutique Marlo had at the Perimeter mall in ATL. Marlo knows how to get money, she’s a true hustler.” Marlo owned a boutique? Please tell me one of you amazing readers has been there!
Following up on the story is Atlanta’s StraightFromTheA blog, who learned from one their readers that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star may have another source of, ahem… income, other than Ted. Allegedly, of course.
Apparently speculation is that Marlo was previously the girlfriend of a high-profile drug dealer from her days in Florida and this is where the majority of her money comes from. Prior to living in Atlanta, Marlo was breaking the law all over Florida, the results of which garnered her a whopping SEVEN arrests! Can’t say the girl just sat around!
“She was dating a drug dealer back in 95, initials WM,” the source explains. “They were living together, had an argument and she tried to have him arrested for battery. He moves out and moves in with another girl. Marlo comes back into the picture. Goes over to his house and attacks WM. He tries to have her arrested for battery.”
The source continues, “A few days after the altercation and trying to file charges on her, he gets investigated for various drug charges (he has prior convictions of selling drugs). Within the month he goes down- charged to the hilt.”
“Probably because of previous plea deals and probation he got slammed.” Marlo’s supposed ex-boyfriend is still incarcerated! After unceremoniously ending her relationship Marlo moved her money to Atlanta where she paid cash for her luxury townhome, which was shown in an episode from two weeks ago. If you recall Marlo had quite the extensive security system set up and if any of the above allegations are true, it would make sense why!
According to StraightFromTheA, a “well-informed source” told the her about the deal Marlo negotiated to purchase her home. Tax records show that the home was paid for in cash and Marlo owns it outright! Not too shabby.
Moving right along to that other accusation about Sheree’s activities at the return merchandise counter at Neiman Marcus, it seems she’s not the only one! As several readers pointed out, Marlo had a tag hanging off the back of her caftan during last week’s breakfast scene! Photos below!
StraightFromTheA got the scoop from one of her sources, who claims Marlo likes to visit the return counter as well! Perhaps she and Sheree can start going together. The insider also alleges that Marlo’s extensive collection of Louis Vuitton luggage was also on “loan” and she was seen storing all the tags “neatly” in an envelope, meaning she purchased them expressly for the trip. When Marlo was asked why she was keeping the tags, she told cast mates she likes to “catalog” her items by designer and year! Le sigh.
Moving right along, NeNe Leakes is apparently highly incensed at Sheree’s behavior towards her new friend. Taking to Twitter, NeNe decided to remind fans of what Sheree looked like beforeBob Whitfield came into the picture and supplied her with a new nose, as he purports. NeNe posted a “before” photo of Sheree and let’s just say she’s taken things down a notch.
Now I think Sheree looked fine before and she looks fine now, but there is most definitely a difference in her appearance! “Sheree’s old nose RT!!! <I remember,” NeNe ReTweeted. The photo is below.
NeNe is still working on Glee. as she made several Tweets about reprising her role and apparently she will also be branching out into the talk show market. NeNe Tweeted, “Great news: I’ve been asked 2 co-hosting on The Talk, next Wednesday & Thursday! This should b fun! Tune n,” she revealed.
And in other NeNe Leakes Takes Twitter activities, the star Tweeted about filming last night. “Just kicked @kingdomlos out my house! We finally finished shooting or did we LOL.” Kingdomlos is a the Twitter account for Carlos King – a RHOA producer! So what was NeNe shooting for Housewives?
Check out this TwitPic, below, and take a good look at what Ms. Leakes is wearing and see if its the shirt from her interview segments. It looks similar!

It’s back to the beach with the peeps of Jersey Shore. Last night, Vinny settles back into shore life, Snooki loses bladder control, and Mike is eerily nice.
Vinny has come back to the Mothership, which is awesome because it means no new roommates for the gang. Everyone heads out, but Rawn for one is leery that Mike is being nice. Like really nice. Scary nice. It is very strange. JWoww is upset that Roger has been MIA, while the Situation reveals that he wants to get a tattoo that says “Loyalty and Betrayal” since he knows so much about those two things. Ronnie thinks “Betrayal and Betrayal” would be more appropriate given Mike’s pension for stirring up dramz among the roommates while being anything but “loyal.”
No matter, let’s just go to Karma! Pauly D is thrilled to have his wing man Vinny back at the Shore. Snooki is thrilled to have all of her guido family back together. So thrilled, in fact, that she totally soils herself on the dance floor. I know when I have to pee…do you, dear readers? Luckily Snooki takes a Shore shower, which means she maybe washed her hands when she went to the bathroom. Who are these people?

Tamra Barney, a four season veteran of the reality show, is talking about what viewers can expect besides plastic surgery, bickering, and tanning!
Discussing her newly repaired relationship with former nemesis Gretchen Rossi, Tamra admits the show encouraged them to keep the drama high! “Well, as you know, there was a lot of outside input that led to our bad relationship. Then it just escalated,” Tamra explains to The B Plot.”It got to the point where we were verbally attacking each other for the sake of the show.”
“It just felt time to build a bridge and get over it. In the process of doing that, we’ve realized that we really like each other and we get along really well. We’ve become extremely close through this adventure.”
Surprisingly boyfriendsSlade Smiley and Eddie Judge have also buddied up and have bonded over bicycles! “They’ve become pretty close. They both cycle, so they ride on the weekends. The four of us go out on weekends, so it’s nice.”
Tamra has also connected with new Housewife Heather Dubrow, whom she describes as “too nice.” “I liked Heather the minute I met her,” Tamra shares. “I worried, however, that she wasn’t going to fit in with the group. I mean, she’s so nice, classy and elegant. We don’t run like that on the show we don’t run like that. Haha. I honestly thought she would run from us. ”
Tamra is excited about what viewers will see of her life this season and she promises no more porno-moments! “Eddie got very camera shy after that,” she says referring to the infamous bathtub bare-all. “There will be no more steamy scenes.” #thankyoulord.
“You see a lot of me finalizing my divorce and figuring out how to put my life back in order. Even though I don’t film with my kids, I talk about them also so people will see me try to raise three kids who have a difficult time with the divorce,” Tamra reveals. “I also start several new business, which includes a fitness studio and a wine of the month club.”
When asked about the stress of embarrassing herself on a reality show, Tamra confessed she turns to alcohol to cope. Oh, dear… “I drink a lot. Haha,” she jokes. “I think for me, I just try not to take it too seriously. I know that I say things that piss the girls off and they say things that piss me off, so I’ll be mad for an hour and then I’m over it. You have to be that way, or you’d go crazy.”
Viewers will also see Vicki Gunvalson going through her divorce from Donn Gunvalson, whom she was married to for close to twenty years! Speaking to the Chicago Sun Times, Vicki talks about her history with Donn and her experiences this season! “I never would have guessed it — that our marriage wouldn’t make it — when we started this seven years ago,” Vicki confesses.
Vicki and Donn met when they were both working at a hardware store, of all places. “He got a job with Home Depot, and they moved us out here [to California],” she describes. “We had no intentions of being on a TV show. It just sort of happened.” Surprisingly, Vicki admits the show contributed to her marital issues, blaming the time commitments and pressure for driving the couple apart. Vicki did not mention Donn’s recent cancer diagnosis though she tweeted about it days ago.
Vicki also claims this season has been a positive one for her and she is excited to have people meet her new deadbeat man Brooks Ayers. “This season, I’m in a much better place,” she says. “I’m becoming the person I feel like I was always meant to be.”
Regardless of their issues, all the ladies promise the drama is still at a maximum. “No matter where you put cameras, there’s going to be drama,” Vicki assures us. “It doesn’t really matter what state you’re in. I think we’ve proven it with this franchise.”
Surprisingly, Jeana Keough and Peggy Tanous will also be back for a couple episodes. “Jeana does come back, we pick up where we left off,” Tamra hints.
Vicki also posted a picture of herself with Jerry Springer on Facebook. I wonder if he will be hosting the next reunion! We could only hope…
Real Housewives Of Orange County premieres February 7th at 9/10c on Bravo.

Last night’s episode of Project Runway All Stars was all about fashion in the real world. The designers meet hostess Angela Lindvall in the park where she lets them know they will have thirty minutes to trawl the manicured grounds trying to rip people’s clothing off. Nope, this isn’t some sort of weird porno starring fashion vampires – it’s a clothes off your back/muse in the city challenge.
Here’s the deal: The designers have to find a muse in the park and use their clothes to create a whole new look. The clothing the designers amass must be used as the material for at least 50% of their look. They have $150 to do whatever they’d like with – even buying clothes from people in order to source materials. Any leftover money can be spent at Mood.
Anthony instantly takes to this challenge like a southern girl takes to hairspray on prom night. I knew right away he was getting the dreaded “loser edit” and was sad. He uses his gregarious ways to collect an enormous amount of materials, sadly he went for quantity over quality and when he returned to the workroom he realized he had little to work with and lost focus. Anthony decided to use a woman wearing a polyester Brady Bunch shift as his muse, but the material was just so un-Anthony.

The 52-year-old breakout star of the season says, “I would like to have other surgery, like my eyes done and a slight face lift and my love handles removed by liposuction… I just need to get this liposuction fast around my bra and my backsides, and I’ll feel much better after that cause my age is kicking in.” Her sister even found her a doctor–on Facebook of all places!–who she will be consulting with this month.
No stranger to procedures, Big Ang confesses that her first foray into plastic surgery was in 1985.“I had a tummy tuck, liposuction, my lips injected and my breasts done three times,” Big Ang said. “The first time I had my breasts done was 27 years ago, and they put sponges in them. That was in 1985.”
Do what? In 2005 the sponges were replaced with saline implants, and then silicone implants were substituted for the saline a few years later.
Big Ang admits that she is done enhancing her chest, saying, “I’m good now, I have a 36 J and that is perfect. I think that when men look at me, they notice my height and my boobs. I am married to a 38-year-old and I am 52 and he is 6-foot-7.”
In other Mob Wives news, Renee Graziano’s father was recently subject to a sting. As she’s had a great deal of stress going on in her everyday life, this family drama can’t be helping. Nydailynews elaborates on the situation.
Anthony “TG” Graziano, a top Bonanno gangster who was secretly taped by his ex-son-in-law Hector “Junior” Pagan, was in a seemingly good mood at his recent arraignment when he pleaded not guilty to charges of extortion, the evidence of which was garnered from Junior’s taped conversations.
On Tuesday, the mobster, 71, waved to his daughter Lana and wife Veronica before greeting the Magistrate with “Good afternoon, ya honor.” He then asked Magistrate Marilyn Go, “Can you talk a little louder? I’m deaf in one ear.”
Go responded, “You look pretty good.” To which Graziano retorted, “What I got left.”
In November Graziano was arrested while living in a halfway house in Brooklyn as he was finishing out the sentence for a prior conviction. Additionally, he is named in an indictment against acting boss Vincent “Vinny TV” Badalamenti and capo Nicholas Santoro.
Patrick Parrotta, Graziano’s attorney gave an interview outside the courthouse, insisting everything was fine between the Graziano and his Mob Wives daughters. While Renee stars in the show, it is the brainchild of her sister Jennifer. Parrotta stated, “He does not hold what Hector did against his daughters.”
His lawyer further asserted that any animosity Graziano may have had about VH1’s hit show is in the past. “There’s no estrangement, everybody’s talking,” Parrotta said. Also, don’t expect to see Graziano pulling a Pagan any time soon. While he is currently in plea negotiations, his lawyer is adamant that he would never cooperate with the feds. Good to know!
Parrotta claims that he is unsure if the FBI directed Junior to go on the show in an effort to regain closeness with the Graziano family. Junior, who appeared in an episode filmed last summer, began wearing a wire last August.
Renee’s struggles with depression have been shown on the show, from her surgery-gone-so-wrong to her relationship with Junior and her father. Not to mention all her friends and co-starts are feuding. She recently tweeted the following earlier this week:
Like me, I am sure many of you are waiting with baited breath for the next installment of the drama. Unfortunately, we must be patient for yet another week. For some reason the Mob Wives don’t think they can compete with the Super Bowl. Thankfully there is a light at the end of our mafia tunnel, as Carla Facciolotweeted, “To all my #MOBWIVES fans we will not be on this Sunday!! :((( Enjoy the SUPERBOWL and we will be back next Sunday Feb 12th!!”
