Teresa Aprea in Florida

If you’ve had the displeasure of reading Amber Marchese‘s term papers about the Real Housewives of New Jersey, you know she blames Teresa Aprea and Dina Manzo for the drama in Florida.

Interestingly, Teresa claims she isn’t angry with Jim Marchese for throwing the cheating rumor in her face. He was just the “drunken messenger” she says.

Teresa‘s beef is with Teresa Giudice. She blames Teresa G for Victoria Gotti being on the show. And she feels Teresa should have showed compassion for her family after she heard the rumor

Tamra Barney in Hawaii with daughter Sophia

Tamra Judge has been battling her ex-husband Simon Barney in court over custody of their three minor children Sydney, Spencer, and Sophia. Simon has accused Tamra of neglect and of putting her Real Housewives Of Orange County career before the well-being of her children, but yesterday Tamra won a court victory against him! 

Simon has been called out by court psychologists for some of his statements. And he alleges that their eldest daughter does not want a relationship with Tamra. There has been drama in and out of the courtroom between the bitter exes. Simon was seeking sole physical custody, allowing for visitation with Tamra, and for Tamra to pay his attorney fees in the case. Yesterday they met back in court where it was good news for Tamra and their children.  

The presiding judge dismissed Simon’s case against Tamra for custody of their two younger children, Spencer and Sophia, citing a lack of evidence to substantiate his claims!

Part two of Joe and Teresa Giudice’s interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live aired tonight and they didn’t disappoint.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars talked about their prison sentences, their current financial situation (broke, broke, broke), their support systems, why they continue doing the reality show and so much more. 

Andy starts right off with Teresa’s claims in court that the show is fake.  “In court papers you claim that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is scripted. ‘It is little more than a work of fiction engineered by Bravo TV through scripted lines and clever editing.’  What did you mean by that?”  Teresa responds, “Meaning that there are editors on the show and our producers”, Andy cuts her off “were you told to flip the table?”  Teresa says “no flipping the table I did.”  Andy asks if she was told to fight with Melissa or Joe Gorga. “My family coming on the show, you know Andy, I didn’t know they were coming on the show.”  Andy says “you didn’t want them on the show,” Teresa jumps in “not that I didn’t want them on the show, they never told me they were coming on the show.”  Andy tries to end it with “we’ve had this discussion many times, ya ya ya.”  Teresa says “When my family came on, I didn’t like the way I was portrayed.  I was the villain, I was this mean person. People would come up to me and they’re like ‘oh my God you’re so nice’ and I’m like ‘what do you mean?’ and they’re like ‘you come off so mean on the show.”

Days after Teresa Giudice was sentenced to federal prison, Real Housewives Of New Jersey went ahead with the reunion filming. Among the many rumors circulating is that Teresa was hours late, annoyed her co-stars, and repeatedly stopped filming to cry. Andy Cohen denied all that – and he’s also giving more details about what went on!

“The reunion show was really intense,” the WWHL host admitted, but reminded us that all Real Housewives reunions are! “It was a typical reunion show, which means it was really dramatic, emotional, intense,” Andy clarified to Extra. “Obviously there was an undercurrent of something incredibly serious that’d just happened with Teresa, but we all got through it.”

george blames carole radziwill for aviva drescher's firing on rhony

You would think since Aviva Drescher has moved on to a new reality show, she’d let go of all the drama from Real Housewives Of New York and toss it aside like yesterday’s leg news – not so! Her notorious father George Teichner is still reeling from Aviva’s firing – and blaming Carole Radziwill as the reason she got the axe! 

“The whole show is a phony!” George laments. “It is not comprised of real housewives. It should be called Divorced Housewives, Single Housewives or Non-Resident Housewives.”

George claims that it was Aviva who brought in all the ratings last season! Wait, I thought that was Ramonja? “They should have never let Aviva go,” George complains. “The ratings were at 2 million, then down to 1.3 million. And the only reason the ratings went up recently is because Aviva threw her leg.”
