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".
Last week Johnny Karagiorgis was threatening to sue Bravo and other Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members related to a brawl that took place at the Moxie Salon/Posche 2 opening. Johnny believed producers and cast members conspired against him to lure into a confrontation and that the fight was pre-meditated for a storyline.
On October 2nd Johnny and his wife Penny Karagiorgis officially filed a lawsuit in Hackensack, N.J! Named as defendants are Joe Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita, Sirens Media LLC (the producers of RHONJ), NBC Universal (Bravo's parent company), Bravo Media, and Moxie Salon. Kim DePaola is not specifically named as a defendant despite everyone claiming she orchestrated at least part of the set-up!
Johnny believes the incident was arranged to increase ratings. Jacqueline, on the other hand, denies any such incidents occurred!
I just don't know what to think about Real Housewives of New Jersey. I always have such hope! Despite an entire season of therapy and what seemed like true reconciliation, the Giudice and the Gorga families are right back where they started.
At last night's reunion it was revealed that the families didn't see each other all summer. Reality Tea's source gives us an exclusive on what's happened since the reunion taped and where the families stand.
This weekend Teresa Giudice's daughter Gabriella celebrated her 9th birthday and while Melissa Gorga attended, Reality Tea's source reveals that Joe Gorga did not! "Of course, Teresa was upset. Melissa did attend, Gabriella is her godchild." Above is the entire family at the party, Poison isn't there!
Eight is Enough? Don't Be Tardy'sKim Zolciak-Biermann certainly has a lot on her plate, and she's making sure that those less fortunate do as well. In case you're wondering, yes, I am patting myself on the back for that segue!
The soon-to-be mother of six in relishing in her last month of pregnancy with twins while donating her time and, ahem, celebrity to charity. As for who is watching the kids with her busy schedule, that's what grandparents are for, right?
All season long there has been a ton of speculation about how Johnny The Greek and Penny Karagiorgis not only appeared on the scene but seemed to have so. much. inside. information. about everyone! But most specifically, Melissa Gorga! All fingers pointed to Teresa Giudice, our intrepid Melissa-hatin' Housewife. But perhaps, just perhaps, there was a lurking saboteur that was actually the mad pot stirrer of the RHONJ universe: Kathy Wakile! Is she Wallpaper no more?
After last night's reunion during which Teresa was prepped for federal court testimony grilled again about where Penny came from, Teresa allegedly re-tweeted an article pointing out that it is actually KATHY who has "The Grk" connection. I never saw Teresa's tweet, so I'm going by the rumor-mill here. The connection? Kathy's daughter Victoria happens to be be BFF with Johnny's niece a girl named Marigo Mihalos.
