Yes, you read the above right! The tangled web of 'I hate you, I love you, I want to destroy your life, oh but I just want us to be close again' that is Real Housewives of New Jersey just got… crazier? Hold on – you're in for a wild one!
Yesterday we reported that despite an alleged reconciliation of the Gorgadice families, Joe Gorga said things were still very, very bad between the families.
Following two seasons of the same fighting between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (and massive fan backlash), Bravo hired new producers to handle S5 of RHONJ as they apparently want a storyline with a more positive spin. Melissa hinted at this in an earlier interview.
According to an exclusive obtained by TamaraTattles, producers are so desperate for this family feud to end they are forcing Teresa, Melissa, and the Joes to film together and make nice (our source confirmed they held a staged playdate to appear like they are working things out).
You know, there is something genuinely entertaining about former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin. Seriously. I don't think she intends to be entertaining in the hilarious and ridiculous way in which I find her, but it's fun stuff nonetheless!
Not one to shy away from the spotlight, Jill has managed to extend her fifteen minutes into several hours, which is, in and of itself, rather impressive. One minutes she's dying to get back on the Bravo show that hired her, the next she's scoffing at the idea of reality television. Oh Jill, you are such a fickle filly, and I love it!
In a new interview, Phaedra says she wins by default because at least her posterior is real and not a Made in China implant!
“If you’re gonna sell a video talking about bottoms, you need to have one that’s homegrown,” Phaedrashares with In Touch Weekly. “I’ve never been altered by plastic surgery,” Phaedra says. “My butt is really my butt. [Kenya’s] is full of silicone!”
Kenya of course, has a re-butt-al. “I’m not opposed to plastic surgery," Kenya says. “I’m just not a big fan — and I’m glad that I don’t need it.”
I'm sure you all remember Bobby Trendy as Anna Nicole Smith's friend and interior decorator. Bobby reached out to us to share a story about another friend of his who has allegedly done him wrong! Hey – everyone's favorite grifter strikes again!
Bobby accuses the Real Housewives of Beverly HIlls star of borrowing several dresses from him – designed for charity, I might add – and then failing to return them OR pay him for them!
I have, what I consider, to be bittersweet news. One of my favorites is quittingReal Housewives of New Jersey. I realize I'm likely in the minority, but I have a soft-spot for most of the Manzos. Sure I didn't like when Caroline Manzo got all bitter for an entire season (I was fearful someone was going to awaken to a horse head in their bed), but I do think she is sick of the toxicity and drama…even if she was a participant.
Even though it can certainly be argued that Caroline's children are overly coddled, I still think Albie and Chris are good guys. A friend of mine grew up with Albie, and he has nothing but nice things to say about their family. Of course, without the Manzo boys, there would be no Greg Bennett. Greggy is by far my favorite Manzo by association…and now he's leaving.
Greg is heading to the West Coast at the end of this month to make his home in San Francisco. Sadly (for me), this means he will no longer be appearing on RHONJ, but I'm hoping that he gets some screen time when he comes back to visit!
