Reality Tea

lauren-manzo-recap

Welcome Back Manzos!!!  It’s a full house this time around on Manzo’d With Children as Albie Manzo and Chris Manzo have moved back home to save money to start their own business (another business? what about the bar? what about BLK water?).  I’m curious how much money they actually save by living at home.  You take away rent and utilities and groceries that definitely helps.  However, I imagine they are still going out to bars, restaurants and shopping – which is where most of my income went at that age anyway. The key to saving money is actually making money (I’m assuming the Bravo salaries are plentiful) and so far every scene has been the boys lounging around at home like it’s summer vacation.  Maybe the cameras are just capturing the weekends – but do these guys have any job right now??? Even if they are earning money from BLK or the restaurant on the side – that still requires doing some work.  This Manzo business idealism throws me for a loop.  Wanting your children to be their own boss in their early 20s might not be the best idea, Caroline Manzo. There is something to be said for busting your butt for a company, learning all the ropes and then maybe after 5-10 years you can be confident enough to do it independently.  I have a feeling moving home had more to do with the show than saving for their “business ventures”.   Sorry, I had to rant on this topic, it irks me to no end.

Watch What Happens Live - Season 11

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice spoke out for the first time since their prison sentences were handed down on Thursday.  The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars sat down with Andy Cohen for a special edition of Watch What Happens Live.  And let me summarize it for you: Teresa thinks she’s a victim in this, y’all!  A VICTIM.  Nope, she hasn’t learned a single lesson.

Andy opens the show trying to keep the twinkle out of his eye recapping the Giudices’ federal prison sentences: Joe will sit for 41 months and Teresa for 15 months.  He says that he wishes he were seeing them under happier circumstances and the mood is grim, as expected.  Andy starts off asking how they’re doing.  Teresa says she feels like she’s numb and things feel surreal.  “All I keep thinking about is my daughters.”

The drama surrounding the Giudice’s legal matters continues to unfold. Joe Giudice was sentenced to 41 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Teresa Giudice landed herself 15 months. During the course of the Giudice’s fraud indictment it emerged that despite living in the US for the majority of his life, and being married to a US citizen, Joe isn’t one himself, and therefore faces deportation after he serves his time. 

Joe’s immigration attorney, Jerard Gonzalez, says that proceedings for a possible deportation will not begin until after Joe’s sentence is completed, however experts connected to ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) said that officials could decide to expedite proceedings at any time – even while the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is still behind bars!

“They could come pick him up tomorrow. I doubt they would do that,” says immigration attorney Edward Shulma (who is not connected to Joe’s case).“They want them to do most of the time.”

Dina Manzo in Florida

Rejoice, Real Housewives of New Jersey fans! We have survived Florida!

I mean, I never saw it get scary island levels of crazy and I still have no idea why Dina Manzo needed therapy afterwards, but it is over. Can we move on now? Is it too much to ask for entertaining and free of the virus that is Jim Marchese?

Dina is ready to move on from the Florida trip too. She kept her blog short and sweet this week, poking fun at Amber Marchese for her victim complex and asking fans to send positive and warm thoughts to Joe and Teresa Giudice.

We may not have heard the end of Khlomar just yet! Even though Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom almost a year ago, sources are reporting that since her break-up with French Montana, Lamar is trying hard to get back into Khloe’s good graces.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and her basketball-playing-ex have had their fare share of ups and downs though — crack addiction, cheating — so it remains to be seen if there is any truth to the reconciliation rumors.
