The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 6

It’s been over a year since Real Housewives Of New Jersey last aired. The show paused while Teresa Giudice was on an extended “away” in prison. Time flies when you’re having fun, right?!

Let’s be honest – season 5 was essentially the lost season. Nothing much happened because everyone was far more interested in how Teresa’s legal issues were playing out in real time. Also, everyone was just so freaking tired of the deja-view Gorgadice Family Feud, so Bravo was conflicted: They weren’t sure what to do with the show, but they sure as hell didn’t want to miss capturing Teresa’s unfolding legal situation. Conundrum!

 Real Housewives of New Jersey ratings

Yesterday reports were zipping around, claiming that Bravo execs have decided to put The Real Housewives of New Jersey on hold until Teresa Giudice is released from prison next year.  First, we all know that Bravo never confirms or denies the status of any of the Real Housewives franchises or which stars will or won’t be asked to return.  Second, we’re going to be hearing every sort of rumor and supposed “tea” on what’s going on behind the scenes, but don’t start placing your bets just yet.

Last season’s cast member Jim Marchese is speaking out with his thoughts on the filming status of the New Jersey franchise.

I watched this Bobby Ciasulli interview/video over a week ago and meant to transcribe it to share the juicier bits with you guys, but time slipped away and I never got around to it.  Bobby dishes on everything from how they all landed gigs on The Real Housewives of New Jersey  to his friendship with Jim Marchese and his wife Amber and so much more! 

I’ll admit that Bobby’s version of events is interesting and worth a watch.  So, if you find yourself with some down time this weekend and you love hearing the “behind the scenes” tidbits, I’m sharing the full video below!

Part three of $#*! Jim Marchese Says, also known as the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, aired on Tuesday. So, with as many words as possible, Amber Marchese took to her blog to clear up a few things about Jim’s career, Jim’s bar exam, Jim’s misogyny, and Jim’s social media haters. Somewhere, Bobby’s hiding in a bathroom and crying, “Jim! Jim! Jim!” #MarciaMarciaMarcia

Jim was a self-made, successful man at a very young age. He has never done drugs and has never been in trouble with the law. He put himself through undergraduate, then through a Masters in Public Administration at Columbia University while working at a pharmaceutical company,” bragged Amber. “Jim was then accepted to law school and once again attended in the evening while working for a biotech company. In addition, Jim was raising his son, Michael.”

rhonj recap teresa aprea, nicole napolitano defend their men

Last night was the second installment of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion. I don’t want to go into the stupidness that is stupid Teresa Giudice and her stupid financial nonsense and stupid decisions that made her go to jail. I mean damn, read what you sign, ask questions if you don’t understand – hello! 

The most laughable comment from the whole reunion was Teresa trying to convince us that she’s usually a very conscientious-y type of person who “always dots her ‘I’s and crosses her ‘T’s.” First of all, she knows two letters in the alphabet? Bet they were both used a lot in the PLEA AGREEMENT Teresa didn’t read, but signed. Second of all, if you were a routine “i” dotter or a “t” crosser you’d not get indicted for bankruptcy fraud or sign fake W-2s because you’d actually make sure the people you hire, like your accountant, are doing their jobs! And finally – I’m frankly surprised Teresa was able to use that expression correctly. I would fully expect her to say something like “I’m the type-a person who crosses eyes and dots my teacup, with you know, fabulicious teas – coming soon!” 

Let’s just say this, Denial is the longest river in New Jersey. The river of denial flows right out of Melissa Gorga‘s $3.8 million Montville mansion (where they had the big ol’ plumbing disaster and the leaky pipes and the plastic sink) and it roars down the hill into the chicken coops of Teresa and Joe’s purloined marble encrusted converted trailer, built at the base of Mount Tackiola. Now for sale, delusion included in purchase price!

RHONJ season finale Teresa and Melissa

Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped up season six with Jim and Amber Marchese, Rich and Kathy Wakile, Rosie PierriChris and Jacqueline Laurita, Bobby Ciasulli, and Nicole Napolitano reacting to Joe and Teresa Giudice being sentenced to 41 months and 15 months, respectively, in prison.

Noticeably missing from the reaction shots were Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga. Melissa took to her blog to explain why she didn’t let cameras into her home that day and throw a little shade at those who did.

Addressing the fans of the show, Melissa said, “We’ve been through so much together throughout the years. It’s not always easy being on reality TV. I’m not complaining, because obviously I signed up for it, but there are times I wish I could turn it on and off. Unfortunately I don’t have that option, so here we are.”

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
