If at first you don’t succeed; try, try again, right? Such is the case with Melissa Gorga trying to sell her Montville, NJ mansion! Melissa and Joe Gorga have once again listed their 9,000 square-foot behemoth, this time with an asking price of $3.5 million in hopes of finally unloading it.
The Gorgas supposedly purchased the home in 2007 for $950,000 – even though Joe was actually the builder (essentially they purchased the home from his company?). Rumors even swirled that Joe, a luxury home developer, initially built the house with a construction loan only sell, but they moved in when Melissa joined Real Housewives Of New Jersey to provide the illusion of being uber wealthy.
Based on the last Real Housewives of New York season and the current Real Housewives of Dallasseason, I feel like every Real Housewives cast needs to go on an annual Mexico trip. These episodes have the best mix of drama and fun times.
The episodes have also showed us a different side of D’Andra Simmons, who has had the tough task of being LeeAnne Locken’s best friend and joining the cast as friend of Kameron Westcott‘s – who is far from a fan favorite. I’m sure D’Andra had some vicarious stress since pretty much everyone else in the cast was arguing, but she managed to turn up and make some peace without overdoing it with the meddling.
I think we all saw it coming when bestie/worstie of friends Reza Farahan didn’t exactly jump to Asa’s defense during her falling out with Mercedes “MJ” Javid over whether or not Asa used IVF to conceive her “miracle baby.” But let’s face it, MJ wasn’t really mad about Asa using IVF or not, she was really just pissed that Asa beat her to the punch when it came to having a kid. So MJ just found the weakest link in the Asa Chain (the fact that Asa isn’t forthcoming with all aspects of her life) and exploited it with the rest of the Shahs to get them on board with casting Asa aside. And it actually worked!
Then there’s someone like Stephanie Hollman, who is there to lighten the mood and be the one who’s “just like us”…. with a way higher budget. Even though Stephanie and LeeAnne cannot stand each other, their differences make this show worth watching.
Is it just plain naive to think that one couple on the train wreck of 90 Day Fiance could really, truly make it? Because I want that for Evelyn and David, young lovebirds who seem smitten with one another, are (somewhat) age-appropriately matched, and who share core values. Alas, the TLC machine might chew them up and spit them out by the end of season five, but until then, let’s pretend they are the real deal, okay? We need this!
In addition to Evelyn and David being introduced this week, we revisit the absolute sh*tshow of everyone else’s relationships. Nicoleholds her daughter hostage goes to Morocco to further torture Azan, the other David (in Thailand) tries in vain to come up with enough scratch to pay for his bride, Annie. And Molly continues to delude herself into thinking that her much-younger fiance, Luis, is the love of her life – despite her eldest daughter’s protestations, not to mention her father’s warnings.
This week brings us the series premiere of The Platinum Life. The cast of “music’s most savvy women and their significant others” includes Crystal Smith, married to NE-YO; La’Myia Good, married to Eric Bellinger; Shantel Jackson, in a relationship with Nelly; Lola Monroe, in a relationship with King Los; Asiah Azante, married to Kid Ink; Nazanin Mandi, engaged to Miguel; and newly single recording artist Alycia Bellamy.
