Among the various Gorga family feuds, Teresa's father is also at odds with Kathy Wakile's mother and they have been for years! This week Teresa and Rosie Pierri sat down to try and iron out differences and be a family again. Our source gives us an EXCLUSIVE back story about the Gorga family feuds, both Original Flavor (old school) and Reality TV Flavor (New School starring Poison and Teresa!).
Apparently part of Teresa's parent's drama with Kathy centers around her decision to join RHONJ despite the family issues. "Teresa's parents were against Melissa [Gorga], Joe, and Kathy joining the show. Why? Because of all the family drama. Who would want their family drama on TV? So, yes, Teresa's father holds a grudge against Kathy and her family as well as their own son and his wife."
SoTamra Barney is once again on the warpath where Gretchen Rossi is concerned. Who is she going to phone at the reunion this year? Did she take the friendship bracelet back?
Of course Gretchen may not deserve Tamra's friendship after all the lies and manipulations she's been attempting to dish out this season, which is exactly what Tamra takes issue with in her latest Real Housewives of Orange County blog!
Tamrawrites aboutGretchen's ever-changing truths and point-blank calls her a liar with regard to Alexis Bellino being invited dress shopping and her alleged role on Malibu Country. Tamra also wonders about why Gretchen was so desperate for attention she tried to make bridal shopping all about her. Ummm… maybe because Gretch was supposed to get that wedding spinoff first?
It seems like Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are constantly in the media for feuding or cookbooks or club promotions, so today we thought we'd send some love to Real Housewives of New Jersey'sKathy Wakile. Granted, it's not as exciting or dramatic as anything her co-stars are usually stirring up, but sometimes we need a little calm in our lives, right?
Speaking to Parade, Kathy dishes on life with the Bravo cameras and how she's tried to maintain balance with her family, her new business opportunities, and the all encompassing world of reality television.
Kathy has tried hard to make sure her kids don't listen to the haters, saying, “Sometimes it gets to you when people feel they are entitled to negatively judge you based on what they see on TV. My husband and I always discuss these things with our kids and try to reinforce what they know to be true about our family and not respond to ‘critics’ who don’t know the whole story. At the end of the day, we are each others foundation and stability, and that will never change. Our mantra is: ‘Don’t let other people’s perception change your reality.’”
Poor Gretchen Rossi has once again found herself on the receiving end of Tamra Barney's "Wrath of Furry" (which is ironic considering Tamra was wearing a wrap of furry this episode)! Bet Gretch figured she'd never end up there again after all her groveling and BFF espousing, but alas a leopard doesn't change its spots!
This week the Real Housewives of Orange County star got a firsthand glimpse of just how flimsy her friendship with Tamra is when she threw her under the proverbial bus for Alexis Bellino and then talked ish about her to everyone who would listen.
In her latest Bravo blog, Gretchen explains her feelings on seeing Tamra's true colors, once again, and defends herself against accusations that she was giving Tamra an ultimatum concerning Alexis and that she lied about her role on Malibu Country. Read on – warning: it's a biggun!

I know a few of you aren't happy with the blind items, but remember that they're more about the fun of the guessing game. Although, the truth does tend to come out eventually….
Todays blind gossip piece: "Which reality star husband has a mistress in Florida? This relationship has been going on for a year now and the reality hubby recently impregnated the mistress and paid her to have an abortion."
It's no secret that one of my guilty pleasures is the cray-cray drama of Love & Hip Hop Atlanta. But, if I'm going to be totally honest, trying to figure out Lil' Scrappy's secret language is something I look forward to each Monday. I honestly think that if I could get Shay to go away (man, she bugs!), Scrappy and I would be the best of friends.
Sure, he may not be in the running for Father of the Year, but there is something about Scrappy that is so endearing. Now, he's won my heart over even more as he's planning to start preaching sobriety and clean living to teens. Don't even try to tell me it's PR. I don't care. I lov-is-nigh-ee it!
Blah, blah, blah….that's what comes to mind when I hear the title of the latest Dance Moms special Dance Moms Chatter. Jeff Collins returns to mediate (is he wearing pink pants? Props!) an hour of filler that promises Kelly and Christi drama, comediennes, and drunk fans (turns out they were one and the same). Jeff revisits the breakdown in Kelly and Christi's friendship, and Kelly admits that she has a hard time letting people into her life. Likewise, Christi knows that it's going to take a long time to regain her former bestie's trust.
Two super fans/comediennes join Kelly and Christi on stage. As the four women share cosmos, Christi wouldn't mesh well with the super fans who hope their kids are never more than mediocre. They don't want their entire lives to revolve around their children's after-school activities. Kelly reminds the super fans that their kids would fit right in with her daughters as Abby Lee Miller is constantly reminding her that her girls are average.
I notice that Christi's hair is the same color as Jeff's pants–it's got a pink tint…or is that my television? We are treated to a montage of all the moms yelling and bickering at some point during the franchise (there is no cohesiveness or chronology in this special), and Christi takes the opportunity to take digs at Kristie 2.0. Kelly reveals that it was Asia that dubbed the original Christi as "Fat Christi." Out of the mouths of babes…
