A ton of Real Housewives of New Jersey news to report today so let’s begin with the 4th season of the hit show!

Yes, filming on the RHONJ season 4 has already began! In fact, it began weeks ago. This is pretty surprising as to my knowledge, Bravo has never filmed a new season of a Real Housewives series while the previous season was still on the air.

It is likely this is being done due to the extremely high ratings and the network doesn’t want to wait an entire year to push out a new season. There are also rumblings Bravo did this to capture Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial which was originally scheduled for mid July. As we reported, that trial has now been postponed to October 13. I am also hearing Bravo is planning to debut the new season this fall. Wowzers.

Meanwhile Perez Hilton recently reported the producers behind the show put out an ad looking for new housewives. I can however confirm all of the current five housewives have been filming so it’s likely Bravo is just looking to add an extra housewife to the mix.

In other news, after receiving backlash for the awful things her husband Joe Giudice said about Melissa Gorga on the most recent episode of the show, Teresa is now blaming editing for Joe’s actions claiming he wasn’t trashing Melissa. While the Gorgas visited the Giudices for Christmas, all seemed to be going well until Joe decided to unleash some not so nice words about Melissa who was nearby but couldn’t hear. Bravo captioned Joe’s words on screen and below is the transcript of Joe’s exact words –

  • “I don’t give a sh*t about her”
  • “She’s a friggin’ animal”
  • “They’re f*cking animals”
  • “Who the hell would want to be that friggin’ racoon face over there? She’s a witch”

In Teresa’s latest blog on Celebuzz, she claims Joe wasn’t talking about Melissa but rather one of Melissa’s sisters – Lysa Simpson – and that Bravo simply edited it to make it appear he was trashing Melissa. “At my Christmas Eve party, sitting in his own house with his own brother-in-law, Joe was talking about Lysa NOT Melissa,” wrote Teresa. But how can Joe be talking about Lysa when he used the words “over there” to describe the person he was trashing? Need more proof? Below is a screen shot from the episode.

Perhaps Melissa’s sister was lurking in the room somewhere in Teresa’s home and went undetected by everyone including Bravo’s cameras. Even more interesting are the number of negative comments on Teresa’s Celebuzz blog. As you all know, Bravo has a policy of not posting the very negative comments on the housewives’ blogs on the Bravotv website.

Also interesting is the fact that those “f*cking animals” are not the ones going on trial for bankruptcy fraud, being arrested for DUIs, or facing 10 years in prison.

And finally, the most recent episode of the RHONJ featuring the smackdown of Kim Granatell was the highest rated episode of the season! Over 2.9 million viewers tuned in to see the Manzos take down the sh*t stirring Kim G. Sunday’s episode was up 15 percent among total viewers compared to the previous week’s episode.


Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about Jesus’ Birthday and in the spirit of Christmas everyone got along except for the notorious Kim G. – who really is incapable of getting along with anyone so she got thrown out of Jesus’ Party by the Manzo’s – who don’t let no body mess with their family.

Things pick up where they left off at Jesus’ birthday party. Melissa lets Teresa know she “got that bitch outta there” meaning Monica Chacone, who was Kim G. ’s plus one for about five minutes until Melissa escorted her politely to the door. Teresa gives her brother and SIL props for handling it well, BUT she wants to know why Kim G. was invited in the first place? Melissa says Kim is harmless which ummm…. What?! Please re-watch season 2, Melissa! However, Melissa calls a spade a spade when she describes that Kim G. and Teresa are eerily similar – in fact, so similar they may be “secret sisters.”


We are midway through the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey so what better time to bring you an all new before they were famous post! You can click here for the first edition!

On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s a very special holiday – Trashymas! I’m sure everyone got many, many lumps of coal. Jacqueline got one in the form of Ashely, Teresa received one in the form of Kim G, Melissa and Kathy received one in the form of Teresa, and The Caroline – well, she got diamonds. Lucky girl.

At the Giudices, they are decorating the hugest Christmas tree ever, but sadly it’s not made of money. Teresa wants us to know that because of the bankruptcy they only got a tree decorated in semi-precious metal and not the one made entirely of gold. D’ya hear that bankruptcy judge – they’re cutting back. If cutting back means driving a Benz and wearing Louboutins then I can only hope to cut back some day! Teresa also wants us to know that all she wants for Christmas is for Melissa’s bad energy to go away. ‘Cause, it gives her a headache.

Melissa is not happy because she just wants an authentic smelling tree for Christmas AND Jesus’ Birthday (which are NOT one and the same, apparently) as she is throwing Jesus like the best birthday party ever. Joey and Melissa discuss their concerns about Jr. Mafia not mixing well with others at their party since he is like totally responsible for the Christening incident. Uh huh. Joey Giudice totally caused the entire thing. Joey G-to-the-Orga and Teresa and Melissa and her sisters had nothing to do with it. Nothing. At. All. Uh huh. We learn Melissa’s hoping to be cast next season sister, Lyssa claims Joe G-to-the-Iudice’s mother punched her in the face at said Christening. Is that where Joe gets it from? Melissa makes it clear NOTHING is going to ruin Jesus’ party!


Despite stating on numerous occasions that she wants nothing but peace for her family, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice continues to slam her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

After calling Melissa a copycat in her latest cookbook (yes she took a dig at her in a cooking book), calling her a liar in an interview last month, and referring to her as a gold-digger on the RHONJ, Teresa took to her Bravo blog this week to bash Melissa once again.

First Teresa, who is hoping to get her own cooking show, attacked Melissa in regards to their recent appearance on Live with Regis & Kelly stating she looked sad on the show because unlike Melissa who is enjoying all the negative attention, she simply isn’t.

“Yes, I heard from you all that I looked a little tense on the show, but that’s because I was. Having issues with my family blow up even bigger because we’re on TV together is kind of a nightmare. It’s not fun for me. I can’t pretend it is,” wrote Teresa. “I’m not gonna sit there and be all smiley and happy that I’m on a talk show when I feel like crying. I’d rather never have been on TV and have a happy family than go through any of this. And it’s hard to sit next to people who obviously don’t feel the same way and are loving every minute of it…,” added Teresa who has appeared on the cover of In Touch Weekly a total of five times in the past 2 months alone granting them exclusive interviews each time.

It doesn’t end there as Teresa goes on to attack Melissa’s singing aspirations. “Hopefully things will get better, but as long as Melissa gets attention for saying negative things about me, I think she’ll take it,” she wrote. “Once it all dies down, I’m looking forward to having our family whole again (I’m guessing that won’t happen until she fulfills her Britney Spears dreams though. Please, make it quick and painless. Thank you, Jeezus!).”

In true Teresa fashion, she also manages to take a subtle dig at Caroline Manzo who was rumored to be on the outs with sister Dina Manzo. “Caroline pointed out that with all her brothers and sisters, someone is always fighting, and I’m sure that’s true. She’s maybe more used to not speaking to her sisters or brothers for awhile, but I’m not. It’s just me and Joey, and I can’t stand not having him in my life,” wrote Teresa.

Teresa also talked about her recent magazine covers stating it’s starting to affect her daughters. “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,” wrote Teresa. Odd considering she gave paid exclusive interviews to In Touch Weekly for all of their recent cover stories about her.

As for Melissa, she has yet to respond to Teresa’s latest comments but seemed to have a more positive outlook on things in her latest Bravo blog. “I really meant what I said about wanting Teresa to be my sister. I wish she would have let me in from the beginning, but better late than never! We are fixing this!” she wrote. Safe to assume Melissa wrote that before reading Tre’s blog.

It also appears things are at least going well between the Gorga/Giudice kids as Melissa tweeted on Monday that she took her daughter Antonia alongside two of Teresa’s daughters to get manis and pedis together. Meanwhile Joe Gorga made the following tweet after reading his sister’s blog, “Just read the blogs, when will she stop?”

Great question but better yet, when will it all stop?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s Merry Jersey-mas! Jacqueline hosts another Gorgadice Reunion, Teresa gets rowdy in court, Melissa gets a record contract, The Caroline‘s daughter has some issues letting go, and Kathy makes more plans to open a restaurant.

Things start out with preparations for Jacqueline’s holiday party/Gorgadice reunion. In the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard Ashley (yes ASHLEY!) counsels Jacqueline to stay out of Gorgadice drama. Um… can someone please counsel Ashley on how her orange spray tan is atrocious? Please, someone? She looks like a Snork with her bright orange face and high ponytail.

At the Manzo’s Santa is bringing patience and cheer and bitchy sisters. Poor Lauren is left out of Manzo sibling bonding since the boys have moved out. Farewell Ham Game! Oh, Lauren – she has officially become The Caroline, Jr – storming around and telling everyone what to do. Albie says one positive about living with Greg is that Greg won’t end up dating Lauren… Oh, really? Is it because he may end up dating Albie? I kid, I kid… After discovering a mouse has eaten the plastic Santa, the Manzos play Mariah Carey’s Christmas album, buy two all-feather Christmas trees, call Cher and Chris March and invite them to their annual Christmas drag show starring Joey G-to- the-Orga! Actually I made that last part up, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun than watching the Manzos bicker about nothing again?!


Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo recently gave an interview to AOL where Melissa expressed her hope of a better family relationship, and Caroline did was she loves to do: give family advice.

Melissa admits, “There is a huge desire on my part to make amends. I want nothing more than my husband to be with his family.” She says she doesn’t want to be the one who appears to stand between her husband and her husband’s sister Teresa. Melissa believes that she hasn’t had the opportunity to prove herself like the ladies who have been on since the show’s beginning. She says, “It’s hard especially for me being the new girl trying to come in and give my side of the story when you have other women who have been on for two seasons, that you know, people have learned to love and people have learned to get to know.”

Caroline thinks it’s “wonderful” that the women share their lives with millions of viewers. She says, “I think it’s a learning experience to teach everyone that they’re not alone in what they are going through.” She elaborates that “in struggles with families and relationships” the most important thing to do is maintain “an open line of communication.” Caroline continues, “Look within yourself to find out what you did wrong.” She’s a regular Dr. Drew!

Melissa concludes with some things we viewers can expect to see as the season continues. She reveals, “On a lot of the upcoming episodes you’re going to see a lot of good times and house husbands. You are going to see us kind of go full circle and makes amends, and I think that is what America is looking for.” My bad, I thought America was looking for drama.

Not to be overshadowed by her sister-in-law’s exposure, Teresa Guidice was featured in US Weekly’s “25 Things You Don’t Know About Me” and I must say I learned a lot about dear ol’ Teresa. She was once a buyer for Macy’s, although I doubt that is something Macy’s likes to advertise. She had a crush on Jean-Claude Van Damme (remembering that picture of Juicy Joe doing the splits, there is no surprise about this one), and she had a curfew until she married Joe at age 27. Teresa wears high heels everywhere she goes, even if it’s too the beach (I think we’ll get to see this later in the season), and she lurves some club music. Again, not especially shocking. Teresa still has her Catholic school uniform that she models weekly for Joe, and she can play the saxophone. My personal favorite? Teresa’s favorite television show is “Dancing with the Stars.” Are you listening, ABC?

On tonight’s episode, “Holidazed and Confused”, Jacqueline hosts a Christmas party, although there isn’t much cheer at the Manzo residence. Lauren is feeling a little bit of separation anxiety with her brothers’ departure from the family home. Joe builds his wife a recording studio…the gift that keeps on giving. Despite their money woes, Juicy and Teresa make plans to spice up their love life…I’m guessing it will be more than just standing under some mistletoe. {shudder} A preview clip is below.

Watch What Happens LiveAndy Cohen will not be hosting tonight. Taking his place will be guest host Jay Mohr. The guests are Kathy and Rich Wakile.


Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice took a break from gracing magazine covers touting fake divorces and yet to be conceived pregnancies this week to actually open up about those topics during a “Twitterview” with her fans.

In the twitter interview organized by Celebuzz yesterday, Teresa revealed her regrets in doing the RHONJ, talked about those pesky divorce rumors regarding her and hubby Joe Giudice, and also revealed if she’s really planning to have more children.

When a fan asked Teresa if she regrets doing the RHONJ, she gave a surprising reply of yes. “Gonna be honest, I’m thankful for the blessings it brought but yes, I do regret it esp when they cast my family :(,” wrote Teresa adding, “I would never have done the show if I thought it would be me & my inlaws. No fame or opport is worth it. #family1st.” This isn’t the first time Teresa has made mention of the show’s adverse effects on her family though she has yet to mention any desire to leave the show.

When it comes to her marriage with hubby Joe – some tabloids have them divorcing – Teresa revealed they are doing great. “We are great, thank u! the stuff in the tabloids ab us divorcing is complete BS. our family is together & happy xx,” she wrote. So can we expect a new Giudice baby in the future, a son to be precise based on last week’s In Touch cover story featuring Teresa? Well she reveals uncertainty. “I’d love a boy and I know Joe would too but I think I’m done. If it happens it happens, but 4 is enough!”

Teresa also shared she is currently working on her third cookbook. As for her favorite housewives series other than the NJ series of course, Teresa reveals she’s a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Love Lisa & Kyle,” she added.

In other NJ news, last week Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorga revealed her 5-year-old daughter Antonia Gorga will be making her acting debut in a Snazaroo commercial on the Nickelodeon network. Melissa also posted photos of her 3 kids visiting the Jersey Boardwalk this weekend. Those pics are below!

And this week, Teresa also revealed her daughter Gia Giudice participated in a dance competition in Florida during which she came in first place. Teresa blogged, “Gia and I are finally home from Florida. We had such a great time and she did so great! She won 1st place and got 5 stars for her team, then she got 4-1/2 stars out of 5 for her personal routine which she only learned in February.” Photos of Teresa with Gia below!

And finally, below is a video of the NJ Housewives, Caroline, Teresa & Melissa, during their appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday –
