In last nights installment of Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s another round of the feud that never ends (it just goes on and on, my friends), as Teresa and Melissa engage in sister-in-lawemy behavior with behind the back comments and to the face fracas. Kathy hosts a goddess get-together to debut her catering ideas, but Teresa decides that she is the only goddess there, so the party becomes allll about her! Jacqueline and Ashley argue, and argue, and argue some more until Chris reaches his breaking point! Oh, and no Joe G-to-the-orga this episode – so happy days!
Things pick up where Hat-ley and Jacqueline left off last week. In an extremely emotional scene, Jacqueline is sobbing in the basement of the restaurant while Chris tries to console her. Jacqueline asks the questions millions of viewers have been screaming at the TV for 2.5 seasons: Why are they letting Ashley have free room and board when she treats us like crap? Exaaaactly, Lauritas, exaaaactly!

In today’s reality news, Bravo Housewives continue their attempt at world domination!
The Bravo network announced earlier this week that for the first time in history of the series, Housewives from various cities will gather together on one stage for what is being called “The Real Housewives Live Tour.”
According to the press release, “Fans will have the chance to get up-close and personal with their favorite cast members as the ladies discuss the most talked about moments, reveal cast secrets and answer questions straight from the audience.”
The three-city tour begins in Atlantic City, NJ on October 1 with Caroline Manzo (RHONJ), LuAnnde Lesseps (RHONY), KyleRichards (RHOBH) and VickiGunvalson (RHOC).
On October 8, Sonja Morgan (RHONY), GretchenRossi (RHOC), Lisa Vanderpump (RHOBH) and PhaedraParks (RHOA) will meet fans in Hammond, Indiana.
The tour will then conclude October 15 with NeNeLeakes (RHOA), JillZarin (RHONY), MelissaGorga (RHONJ) and MarysolPatton (RHOM) in Atlanta.
For the fans looking to get up close and personal with the cra cra housewives, it’s gonna cost you! The ticket prices will range from $49.50 to $170.00. They go on sale Friday, August 19.
In other housewives news, a new report is once again dispelling those silly Jill Zarin is considering leaving theReal Housewives of New York City rumors. According to the NY Post, that is far from the truth as the Jillousy has practically been begging Bravo to keep her on the show.
“Jill would re-sign tomorrow if she could. She has been pitching herself very aggressively to keep her on next season, because she’s terrified she’ll be phased out,” reveals a source. “She would love to have her own show like [former “Housewives” star] Bethenny Frankel, but she’s not getting it.” Ouch!
This makes you wonder if Jill was indeed one of the reported two NYC Housewives who told Bravo they would be willing to take a pay cut to remain on the show. In the meantime, some are speculating that Jill alongside Countess LuAnn and Sonja Morgan will indeed be returning next season due to the fact that Bravo is including them in the tour.
Perhaps Jill has now received word from Bravo that she will be returning because she has changed her tune since last week. Jill recently told UsWeekly that she is NOT leaving the show.

We reported days ago that we suspected a feud was brewing between Real Housewives of New Jersey BFFs Jacqueline Lauritaand Teresa Giudice; well fast forward to today folks, and that feud has been confirmed! In her latest Bravo blog, Jacqueline confirms she was indeed talking about Teresa in her tweets from over the weekend. In fact, in what can only be described as the ultimate verbal bitch slap, Jacqueline takes things a step further when she completely slams her former BFF, pretty much calling her a liar and a hypocrite. Jacqueline’s comments all stems from Teresa’s blog last week in which she called out Caroline Manzo for stating that she will not hate Kathy Wakile or anyone else because Teresa told her to. It didn’t end there as Teresa then included Jacqueline in her comments for not having her back when it came to Kathy and Melissa Gorga. Below are the excerpts from Teresa’s blog –
“I do have to address one thing about Caroline. When she said, “I will not hate someone because you told me to,” I’m hoping she was speaking theoretically and not about me, because I never asked her to hate Kathy or anyone else. I do think it’s funny that she talks about not getting on the “hate train” because I remember when it came to Danielle, she not only got on the hate train, she built it, fueled it and was the Hate Train Engineer. Danielle never did anything to me or my family (except for lame insults, but those don’t bother me)… Caroline and Jacqueline telling me that Danielle hurt their families was enough for me to support them. I didn’t need proof. I didn’t need to invite Danielle to my parties to “see for myself.” I trusted my friends and had their back. Caroline and Jacqueline have no idea about the years and years of family history between me and Melissa and Kathy.”
Well Jacqueline didn’t take too kindly to Teresa’s nonsense words. In her blog, Jacqueline makes it clear Teresa did not have anyone’s back when it came to Danielle Staub. Jacqueline also calls Teresa a hypocrite for saying her family members only joined the show to get rich, citing she also did the same. And finally, Jacqueline criticized Teresa for what we reported last week, which is that she was encouraging the cra cra Danielle to release whatever information she claims Melissa sent to her. To finish Teresa things up, Jacqueline closed out her blog accusing Teresa of pretending to be going through a hard time to get public sympathy – something we’ve suspected all along because for starters, she can be seen on the show driving a Mercedez Benz and wearing Louboutins, you know, all while being broke and bankrupt. “This year has really opened up my eyes to a lot of things. Thank you for finally clearing up all those rumors out there. It’s good to know that you are fine and really aren’t going through a hard time, but maybe it’s time you let the rest of the world who is worried sick about you in on that too. Sometimes, I wish I would have kept my rose colored glasses on or kept my eyes shut,” wrote Jacqueline. So just in case you’re keeping count, Teresa has now managed to alienate each and every single one of her costars. But surely, she is NOT the problem. As we confirmed days ago, Jacqueline no longer follows Teresa on twitter. What is also clear is that this drama will all play out on the 4th season of the RHONJ which is currently filming. The first screen shot from Jacqueline’s blog is below. Click the continue reading button to see the remaining screen shots.

Well, the holidays have finally ended on Real Housewives of New Jersey, so that means the housewives can just get down to the business of being their normal ridiculous, crazy, over-the-top selves without Jesus’ birthday or New Years Invitation issues or friendsgivings to distract us from the real problems at hand – Ashley. Yep, this episode was all about everyone’s favorite House-child: Ashley “The Hat” Holmes, but luckily it seems her days on Franklin Lake soil are limited!
Things begin with Teresa announcing she is putting that whole bankruptcy fiasco behind her (too bad, the worst of that is only yet to come) and focusing on the future– most specifically her newest cookbook, for which she is hosting a family photoshoot, sans, of course, her brother. Teresa mentions that what’s important to her is: “good food, good sex, expensive stuff she can’t afford, fame-whoring, starting drama, and family and friends.” After several mild meltdowns from children and husband, the shoot wraps. I wonder if Papa Giudice’s wine was on hand for the crew – because they definitely needed it!

The reason? Well Jacqueline made some very interesting/cryptic tweets over the weekend which appeared to be about Teresa but we’ll let you be the judge. A screen shot of those tweets are below –
Even more interesting? Jacqueline no longer follows Teresa on twitter! Plus Jacqueline was at Melissa’s release party on Friday with Teresa and the rest of the RHONJ castmates so perhaps something went down at that event. The first tweet (the last one in the above screenshot) was made at 1:42am on Saturday morning.
In other NJ news, as her new VH1 show Famous Food continues to flop, former RHONJ star Danielle Staub continues her desperate attempt to stay in the news.
Almost a week after claiming Melissa Gorga was the one feeding her information about Teresa last year, Danielle now has her sights set on “exposing” the RHONJ stars for reasons only known to Danielle. Below are some of her tweets –
“I am sick of what they do to my family did anyone ever think about that? something bad happens to them they drag my Family down!”
“If I disclosed all the info that people have sent to me ~ clown head would even cry real tears this time – people see through their facade”
“They broke all deals by continuing to speak about me one full year I stayed quiet – I thought they’d stop!! Enough already!!”
As we reported days ago, Danielle appears to be working hard to get her story about Melissa and Teresa out to a national magazine.
And finally, an all new episode of the RHONJ titled ‘Child’s Play No More‘ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 13th episode this season, Teresa’s children have a play date with Melissa’s children, yet the kids seemingly show more maturity than their parents. Meanwhile, Kathy mulls over how to nurture her teen daughter. And Ashley’s father pays her a surprise visit, but there may be more going on than simply a family reunion.
It airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below –

TELL US – DO YOU THINK JACQUELINE’S TWEETS ARE ABOUT TERESA? THOUGHTS ON DANIELLE’S COMMENTS, THE PREVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the year may have changed, but everything is still exactly the same. Teresa can’t get along with anyone she is related to, by proxy or otherwise; Jacqueline can’t deal with Ashley, Caroline just wishes she had never gotten involved, and Melissa tries in vain to reason with crazy. Oh yeah, Kathy was there too – kinda.
The Caroline is back on the radio and she’s tawking about New Year’s Resolutions and Ashley calls in and said her resolution is to leave reality TV. I wish! The Caroline gets a call from a person who is being nice to someone who just won’t be nice back; Caroline encourages this person to continue to be good and pure. Guess who is coincidentally listening while wearing her fur coat? Melissa! Melissa, thinking – I’m a good and loving person dealing with someone who just won’t reciprocate, I will not be intimidated – calls Teresa to extend the Swarovski encrusted olive branch, and arrange a playdate between their girls.

It’s Jesus’ birthday on the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and Caroline celebrates with her diamond studded version of Silly Bandz, while Rich and Kathy celebrate with a six foot fried fish. The Gorgas and Guidices go head-to-head for the most modest Christmas ever, and the ever thoughtful Ashley forgets to buy gifts for Chris and Jacqueline. Plus, there’s an added supermodel cameo!
It’s a very juicy Christmas Eve dinner at the Guidices. The recently, and barely, repaired relationship between Teresa and her brother Joe is finally making headway, as he and his family are attending the melee. But wouldn’t you know it? The Gorga siblings’ horrible cousin Kathy has done the unthinkable…she’s invited Joe and Melissa to her house for Christmas Eve dinner as well. What’s such a popular couple to do? Well, attend both shindigs, of course, leaving Teresa forced to do what she does best–give her brother a guilt trip. She leads him into the dining room and shows him the place settings reserved for him and Melissa. Does the mean and hateful Kathy really want those seats vacant on Christmas Eve? Teresa and her brother are ALWAYS together Christmas Eve (newsflash, Teresa, he IS with you on Christmas Eve). Kathy is just a cousin, she can see Joe the day after Christmas. Boxing Day is a great day for cousins. Joe tries to play the peacemaker before he and his Gorgas peace out for Kathy’s dinner.

If you recall, Teresa has been angling to get on the show for over a year now. “I am thinking about doing Dancing With the Stars. What do you guys think?” wrote Teresa back in July 2010.
Well fast forward to today and Teresa is singing a different tune when it comes to DWTS, stating the show does not want any ‘Housewives’ on it. When a fan sent her a tweet saying she should be on the show, Teresa responded, “Would [love] to but they don’t want ‘Housewives’ this season. But Playmates are OK?”
DWTS has yet to respond to Teresa’s comment. Perhaps the show just doesn’t want Teresa this season or maybe they are really anti-housewives. But surely a ‘Housewife’ would be an upgrade from Rob Kardashian no?
Meanwhile, a new episode of the RHONJ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 11th episode this season titled “A Very Jersey Christmas,” it’s Christmas morning and housewives are stirring. Caroline receives a long-overdue present and Melissa considers herself the luckiest woman in Jersey. But there aren’t many ho-ho-ho’s for Teresa, whose holidays take a not-so-merry turn.
The episode airs at 10/9c and a preview clip is below!
Watch What Happens Live – The guest tonight is John Hickey. Not exactly sure who that is either but Andy Cohen tweeted this moments ago, “ATTN BIG BROTHER FANS: watch “watch what happens live” tonight at 11 for a big surprise just for you.”
And finally, as we reported this week, the 4th season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey is currently being filmed by Bravo. It also appears relationships between the ladies on the show are changing. For starters, Caroline Manzo seems to be getting closer to Melissa Gorga and even Kathy Wakile. Just this week, Caroline was tweeting back and forth with Kathy.
Lauren Manzo first made this tweet, “Just saw Sunday’s episode & I just LOVED it!!! I smiled the whole time!! @melissagorga & @joegorga were so cute! @Kathywakile made me cry!” Kathy replied that she had yet to receive the episode, and Caroline then tweeted twice to Kathy including this tweet – “That stinks. I watched it twice, the kids are gorgeous, every single one of them.”
It will be interesting to see how Teresa and Caroline’s relationship unfolds on the new season. If you recall, Teresa has been taking some not so subtle shots at Caroline in her Bravo blogs regarding Caroline’s relationships or lack thereof with some of her siblings. And as we all know, Caroline is very protective when it comes to her family. Can’t imagine the friendship between the two ladies will not be somewhat damaged or tested on the new season.
