The Jersey ladies are gathered together for the first time in over a year, with the exception of Dina Manzo, who exited the show mid-season because of Danielle Staub. Despite Dina’s absence, she is still the topic of conversation among the housewives and Teresa has no problem putting all of the blame on Danielle.
A video preview is below that shows the aftermath of a fight between Danielle and Teresa. It seems Danielle brings up Teresa’s family, and she decides to take out her bankruptcy humiliation frustration on her. The super-sized 1 hour and 15 minutes reunion episode airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
You have all likely seen the previews by now which shows Teresa Giudice shoving host Andy Cohen as he tries to hold her back. Well, Teresa is now speaking out about her actions, trying to explain why she want ape nuts on Andy.
“I didn’t mean to shove Andy,” Teresa tells UsWeekly. “I love Andy.” On why she shoved him, she said: “When I’m attacked, I attack back. I don’t like to be held back or touched…Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don’t hold me back!”
Caroline Manzo gives her take on the reunion show as well, “There are no words,” she said. “Just no words. I could not compose a rational thought in my head for two days [after the taping]. It took me two days to regroup.”
There is also a rumor that has been going around for the past couple of weeks stating that Teresa’s husbandJoe Giudice has been having an affair with a Jersey woman named Tara G. We received an email about this a while back, with someone telling us that everyone in the Giudices hometown is aware of this woman and the affair, including Teresa.
We didn’t publish this as there was no proof attached to the email. So, if there’s anyone out there with proof, photos, last names, facebook pages etc, Please feel free to email us the details using our site contact page or at Realitytea@yahoo.com.

TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & THE REUNION SHOW PART 1?
Well thanks to RadarOnline and People magazine today, we can now report a physical fight occurs between the bankrupt Teresa Giudice and former prostitution whore Danielle Staub.
RadarOnline reports things got so heated between the two ladies, to the point that producers had to step in to separate them. “A fight broke out between Danielle and Teresa. It got so crazy that the producers had to get involved and break it up,” says a source.
“It got a little crazy,” another source adds. “Did anyone walk away with a black eye, no… But it definitely got to the point where I think everyone was more than holding on to their seats or being held back.”
PEOPLE magazine adds that at one point host Andy Cohen and Caroline Manzo had to intervene as Teresa got up out of her chair and started for Danielle, who was sitting across the room.
Andy Cohen calls this the best reunion show ever, adding that “you won’t believe how it starts and you won’t believe how it ends.”
Part one of the reunion airs Aug. 30 on Bravo, with part two airing on Sept. 6. Another photo from the reunion is below -
We’ll start off with Danielle Staub, who hosted a party for her 48th birthday last night at NYC’s Scores strip club. The former stripper/escort however took some time away from the pole her party to talk to the press, during which she told NBC Newyork she’s in the works of creating her own spin-off reality show.
“It will definitely be a lot more of her (gal pal Lori Michaels) and I and definitely my kids,” Danielle told the site. “There will be a lot of questions that will be answered.”
And when asked about the status of her relationship with faux girlfriend Lori, “We’re exclusively committable,” answered Danielle while holding Lori’s hand.
The HollywoodLife is also reporting today that Danielle’s former BFF, three-faced Kim Granatell, tried to crash Danielle’s strip club party last night.
According to the site, right as Danielle was about to walk into her party, Kim G., pictured above in front of Daniele’s party last night, arrived with an entire entourage in tow even though she wasn’t invited. Danielle was reportedly blindsided and refused to walk in until Kim G. was escorted off the premises. “It took a little while but Kim finally got into her black Bentley and sped off,” says the site.
Next up is Dina Manzo, who bowed out of the Bravo hit show mid season. According to the Crushable site via Life&Style magazine, Dina did not attend the recent taping of the reunion show. Dina’s reason for being a no show? She wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle.
Teresa Giudice also talked to the mag about the reunion taping. “The reunion was crazy, exhausting and unbelievable,” Teresa tells Life & Style.Andy Cohen also chimes in saying, “It was nuts, absolutely nuts!”
Life & Style reports that taping lasted nearly 12 emotionally-draining hours.
According to a Bravo press release, the reunion will be in two parts airing August 30 and September 6. The show’s finale will air August 23.
And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.
“They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”
Teresa also shares her plan of writing another book with the magazine, while revealing she hasn’t lost all the weight she gained during her last pregnancy. “I haven’t lost it all yet!” she says. “I still have about 10 pounds to go.
“I’m going to tell her what I told her before — your house is in foreclosure,” Danielle tells PEOPLE. “I wasn’t lying and you did know,” says Danielle as she references a recent episode of the show, when she accused Teresa of having a home in foreclosure.
Danielle adds that while she’s also had some problems with debt, she was never in as bad as a situation as the Giudices. “Divorce put me in debt. I didn’t lie about that. But we’re talking $100,000. We’re not talking $11 million,” she says. “I think people need to spend within their means and if you don’t know what you have, you need to communicate with your husbands.”
This follows Teresa’s appearance on The View Monday, when she claimed her husband, Joe Giudice, kept their financial problems from her.
Danielle however makes it clear that should never be an excuse. “One thing that comes with marriage is that it’s fifty-fifty,” she says. “It is your responsibility to know these things. You can’t just throw him under the bus … That’s not cool,” adding “if you have it, don’t flaunt it because it will come back and bite you.”
The Reunion – As we reported, the reunion show was taped this week on Wednesday, and it seems something big went down. Below are the few tweets those involved with the taping have since made -

Danielle has yet to tweet anything about the reunion and Dina twitted a lot during the day of the filming, meaning she likely did not attend the reunion taping, or if she did, she filmed a very small segment. No word yet on when the reunion show will air.
Star magazine is also reporting today that the classiness known as Danielle Staub will be hosting a birthday bash at New York City Gentleman’s Club Scores, on Tuesday, August 10. This is in celebration of her 48th birthday, and the invitation promises Danielle will treat partygoers to a live performance of her tortured lullaby ‘Real Close.’ No word on if the former stripper/porn star will hit the pole.
We are now onto the 12th episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and while it wasn’t as good as next week’s episode will be, it was still very interesting to say the least.
There are two angles one can go with in doing this recap. One is we finally get to meet Tom Staub, the man behind the legend, you know the man who decided Danielle Staub was fit to be his wife and the mother of his children. The other angle is Teresa Giudice of course, who was one of the most searched people on the internet yesterday thanks to the news of the impending public auction of her home items, and her thirst for diamonds, you know considering this episode was taped just a few weeks after she signed off on the bankruptcy documents. Oh what the hey, I say let’s go with both angles!
The episode starts off with some precious family time with the Giudices as they do monopoly night. When Joe wasn’t busy threatening to kick one of his daughters, Teresa decides to bring up their upcoming 10th anniversary. Teresa can’t believe she and Joe have been married for 10 years because “it feels like 5.” Teresa asks the kids for anniversary gift ideas and one of their daughters suggests chocolate and flowers, but bankrupt Teresa makes it clear that’s not good enough. Joe has an even better suggestion, when he jokingly suggests the $100 luxury tax ring, before retracting it, joking saying that he couldn’t even afford that. Must say the financial jokes by Joe are very telling. Notice how they seemed to start just a few episodes ago? Teresa however makes it clear there will be no hanky panky for one month if Joe doesn’t come through, and I can’t help but wonder if Teresa can even go a week with no hanky panky from Jiucy Joe.
Danielle decides to meet up with her friend/party planner to plan a party for herself her daughter Christine‘s sweet 16. Danielle then lets us know she plans to make this a memorable party for herself Christine because she never had a birthday party “thrown to” her until she was 47-years-old. Really Danielle? Not even a party at 1? 10? 16? 18? 21? 30? 40? 45? Well since Danielle is not known to ever lie or exaggerate, I will go ahead and take her word for this.
Christinereveals her idea to donate all proceeds from her party to a charity and Dirty D decides this is a perfect moment to take credit for Christine’s idea because that’s her daughter and she gave birth to her. And I take a moment to ponder how Danielle’s daughters seem to have turned out amazing and well grounded in spite of their mother. Danielle asks Christine if she wants to invite her father and Christine answers yes. Danielle then lets us know that Tom hasn’t been the best father in the world to his daughters, and I can’t help but wonder if Danielle is being truthful about this, or just trying to paint her ex in a bad light out of vengeance, not that this is Danielle’s MO or anything.
Jacqueline and Caroline meet up and yet again Caroline is making perfect sense when she advises Jacqueline to distance herself from the three-faced Kim G. and focus on her daughter.
The Giudices and the Lauritas have a get together during which Joe, who looks rather stressed, ponders what to get his wife for their upcoming 10th anniversary. Joe mentions the 10-year gift has to be a “big one,” bankruptcy be damned. Teresa, who just signed off on bankruptcy papers to the debt of $11 mil a few weeks earlier, is then shown having a conversation with Jacqueline. “I love diamonds, diamonds and diamonds and diamonds,” says the bankrupt Teresa when asked what she wants for her anniversary by Jacqueline. And how genius are the show’s editors for choosing the oh so perfect background music for this ridiculous scene.
And it’s now that time of the show, when we get to see the hotness known as Albie Manzo. This time around, Albie is sporting a buzz cut, which might or might not be slightly taking away from his hotness, and we find out Albie has joined the police academy while waiting to get into a new law school. Must say it’s nice to see a Manzo with ambitions that go beyond the Brownstone.
Apologies in advance for the poor embarrassingtragic photoshopping skills. With that being said, let’s get right to the recap of episode 11 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, brilliantly titled – Staub Wounds.
The episode starts out with a scene of Teresa and hubby Juicy Joe, as they get the girls ready so Joe can take them out. For a minute there, I was touched at the thought of Joe being a good father to his little girls, well that is, until Teresa casually mentions that Joe threats their daughters like boys, you know because he hasn’t been able to get the son(s) he wants after 4 tries…
Things then take a disturbing turn when Joe makes his very young daugthers fight each other after their karate lesson. I just found this scene to be all kinds of wrong and disturbing. Nothing wrong with putting his daugthers in karate/taekwondo, but the making them fight each other was just wrong and icky to watch.
We move on to victim Danielle, who has decided the best way to protect her weave self is to take self defense classes, at the suggestion of her ex-con rumored bed buddy Danny, who spends the entire time standing back in ring glaring at Dirty D. Danielle of course is involving her two daugthers in her quest to be the ultimate fighter. Danny suggests Danielle picture Teresa and Jacqueline in front of her as a means to add more fuel to her fighting fire. The Bravo cameras then pan to Danielle’s daugther Christine, who looks pretty embarrassed and would probably rather be back home doing homework at this moment.
Danielle gives us her best dose of crazy during her 1 on 1 interview when she declares, “Walking away is not good enough for them. They want to make you feel like the prey. And then they sit there and they go, I don’t know why you keep you saying you’re the victim. Well Bitch cause I am. Stop effing chasing me!”
The former prostitution coke whore then declares, “It only takes one good smack to the head to make a person never walk again.”
We see Jacqueline at home, and Kim Granatell, who is arguably the most two faced person in the universe, decides to pay a visit. I’m just going to refer to Kim G. as the newest housewife from here on out. I don’t even think she’s auditioning anymore for a slot on the show, she has obviously replaced Dina. No need to wait for a press release from Bravo. So why exactly did Kim G. show up to Jacque’s? Well to stir up the drama pot of course! The two rehash the country club drama and Kim G. informs us clumps did indeed come out of Danielle’s head.
Next up, we see Mama Bear Caroline making individualized eggs for all three of her very adult children. Two of the kids leave to go to work and Caroline and Albie McHottie Manzo discuss his future. Albie informs his mom that he needs to get a recommendation letter from his old law school before he can get into a new school.
Teresa, who filed bankruptcy just a few weeks before this episode was filmed, is shown going into Kim DePaola’s boutique Posche to do some shopping, but then again Teresa is never really shown shopping, but rather talking during her time there. Teresa once again assures the world her house is absolutely not in foreclosure. Stalker Wannabe new housewife Kim G. then randomly shows up, wearing a very age inappropriate sleeveless fur attire. Teresa once again states that she meant well in trying to strike up a conversation with Danielle, despite admitting on last week’s episode of Watch What Happens that her intention was to confront Danielle on some of the rumors she was spreading about her.
Teresa then makes a funny, the funniest quote of the night actually, when she states, “The only thing I regret about that night was pushing Kim G. because she is an older woman and I do respect the elderly.” Hilarious, especially considering that it came from the very unintelligent Teresa. And how old is Kim G. by the way? She can’t be a day younger than 70 60, no?
“Do not let her win this time. You win by doing nothing.” – Caroline Manzo (Episode 9)
“She got exactly what she wanted. She wanted everybody to say, ‘See, mean girls. You see the mean girls? You see what I have to deal with?’ And you gave it her.” – Caroline Manzo (Episode 10)
The fight club scene of the Real Housewives of New Jerseyaired last night and it definitely lived up to the hype. Perhaps this episode was a gift from Bravo, you know, for putting us through one of the most boring seasons ever of a housewives franchise.
I started watching the episode just ready to feel sorry for Danielle. I mean I just knew I would end up feeling sorry for Danielle, who after all was going to be attacked, oops I mean assaulted, byAshley Holmes, but within the first 10 minutes of watching the show, I quickly realized that would not be the case. The reason? Well you’re just going to have to read the recap
So the episode begins where Bravo left off 2 weeks ago, with the Danielle and Teresa conversation turned confrontation. I tried to give Teresa the benefit of the doubt two weeks ago, thinking she perhaps meant well in trying to talk to Danielle. But after watching the events that unfolded, it’s pretty clear Teresa’s intentions were to stir things up. Even Teresa herself admitted on WWH last night that Danielle had been going around town spreading rumors about her, and she intended to confront Danielle about those rumors.
The confrontation continues and evidently in New Jersey, Paterson to be exact, “Don’t call me honey,” are fighting words. Watching this scene made me see Teresa is a whole new different light. I always knew she wasn’t the brightest bulb of the bunch, but her behavior made her appear extremely immature and downright moronic. The excessive head twisting and “Don’t forget girlfriend, I’m from Paterson,” comment was beyond ridic! Is this woman serious? Surely she jests.
Things take a turn for the worse when Danielle uses the F word. In case you’re wondering, the F word stands for Foreclosure, at least when it comes to the housewives of Bravo. Danielle, perhaps referring to the foreclosure story that came out about the Giudices last year, tells Teresa her home is in foreclosure, and boy o boy, did she unleash the kraken! The truth foreclosure comment hit a major nerve with Teresa, and Danielle decides to start running for some odd reason. Really, why is Danielle running? Teresa, being the Paterson badass that she is decides to chase after Danielle.
Back to the foreclosure story. Danielle was actually correct, well sorta. A story came out last October stating Teresa and Joe’s home was in foreclosure. It however turned out the foreclosure was for a property they owned and not for their mansion. What’s even more interesting? Well according to police documents, this “fight scene” actually took place on November 11th. Just 2 weeks after Teresa and Joe filed for bankruptcy on October 29th. This might explain why Teresa went nuts with the comment. You know what they say, the truth hurts. This also makes me think the whole housewarming party took place sometime after the bankruptcy filing, yet before the Kim D fashion show, which if true, is quite unbelievable.
Now back to the show. I was certain I was going to feel sorry for Danielle because Teresa was the aggressor and instigator this go around. However, her over the top acting, antics, and just all around hysterics were extremely ridiculous. I mean seriously Danielle? When you think about it, there wasn’t a change in Danielle’s behavior and reaction before and after being attacked by Ashley. Teresa decides to pick an argument and that means she needed to take off running? I ask again, why was she running? She even had a bodyguard with her. Teresa and Jacqueline never touched her, so why the hysterics?
Well I’ll tell you why. Danielle is a perpetual victim who relishes in playing the victim role. Some people aim to be survivors while others accept the victim role, and get very comfortable in it. Danielle is the later. And speaking of roles, did you know Danielle has an acting background? Yes, years before embarking on a porn career, Danielle was an actress and even had a tiny role on the ABC soap – All My Children. Caroline said it best when she later told Teresa and Jacqueline, “She got exactly what she wanted. She wanted everybody to say, ‘See, mean girls. You see the mean girls? You see what I have to deal with?’ And you gave it her.”
The best part of the show comes in the form of the random blonde lady for yelling out, “This is such f*cking bullsh*t,” right into the cameras. Someone please get this woman a reality show asap!
Danielle is now outside and hysterically crying because having a co-star and former friend yell at you during an argument calls for hysterical crying. The third best part of the show comes when Kim G. tries to calm Danielle by yelling at her, “Calm down!” All that was missing from this scene was a calming slap across the face ala Airplane.
A blogger’s dream, Kelly Bensimon, is back in the headlines once again. This time around the Real Housewives of New York City star attempts to defend herself against those pesky crazy ‘rumors’ in the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine.
And nothing says I’m not crazy like the above photo. We’re guessing the theme of the photo was meant to be fighting back, but all we see is a crazy lady with boxing gloves.
“I am not crazy. I am unpredictable,” declares Kelly, adding, “I’m not in therapy.” Interesting words coming from the 42-year-old mother of two who accused her co-stars of being “dangerous” and “unpredictable” during the reunion show. And in next month’s Glamour magazine, Kelly will declare, ‘I’m not crazy guys! Just a little dangerous.”
Things get even better as Bravo VP Andy Cohen also spoke to the magazine. “I think it was deeply disturbing. It seemed like she had a break of some kind, but I can’t say exactly what it was,” said Andy of the infamous St. John breakdown. Could Andy’s comments be a hint regarding Kelly’s unlikely return for another season? Perhaps.
And when it comes to her co-stars, Kelly has convinced herself is convinced they are jealous of her: “Whether it’s my nail color, my hair color, or the shoes I’m wearing, everything about me bothers them…They want to go to the parties I go to, they want to hang out with me, they want to do the things that I’m doing.” Her co-stars are about as jealous of her the same way Taylor Swift is jealous of Lindsay Lohan.
So how does Kelly explain her behavior to her two young girls? “I tell my girls, ‘Your mom gets paid to engage in inappropriate behavior.’ It’s an amazing opportunity for them to see that being mean is not okay. I tell them, ‘If you’re in a situation like this, walk out. Don’t come back with jelly beans.’” So in Kelly lala land, it’s okay for adults to engage in inappropriate behavior as long as they are getting paid?
And folks, you simply cannot make this up. The best writers in Hollywood couldn’t make this up. The August issue of Harper’s Bazaar hits newsstands July 20.
