Days after it was reported the NJ Housewives were visiting the Dominican Republic for a vacation on Bravo’s dime, TMZ is now reporting a crazy bar fight broke out on Wednesday.
According to sources involved in the situation, a couple of castmembers were hanging out at a bar inside the Hard Rock around 1:00 AM Wednesday morning when they got into a heated argument with a male patron.
The argument reportedly got so bad, to the point that someone involved grabbed a drinking glass and smashed it over the man’s head. The guy was hurt pretty badly and needed immediate medical attention.
Unfortunately, TMZ did not report the names of the castmembers involved though sources reveal Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo were spotted at the Hard Rock that night.
Bravo refused to comment on the situation, and RadarOline reported last week that the Bravo cameras were on hand to film the vacation aka there’s a good chance this will make the third season.
TELL US – SO LET THE GUESSING GAME BEGIN. WHO WAS BEHIND THE BAR BRAWL? DO YOU THINK IT WAS TERESA, TERESA OR TERESA?
“All the housewives and husbands took off on Sunday for Punta Cana,” said a source. “It’s a fun trip with friends and family.”
Radar adds that the housewives left their kids behind for this trip, and that Bravo is on hand to film the vacation for season 3. Scary Island 2 anyone?
Meanwhile, some fans are now wondering if Dina Manzo, who quit the show midway through season 2, might be returning based on a recent tweet she made.
“Filming a secret “project” for Bravo today…this should be fun!” tweeted Dina on Monday. However, it’s likely the filming wasn’t for the NJ housewives as Dina revealed a while back that while she wasn’t returning to the Real Housewives of NJ, she was indeed planning a return to TV.
And finally, weeks after Teresa Giudice jokingly stated she actually missed Danielle Staub’s presence on the NJ Housewives, Danielle is now firing back via a new interview with Popeater, making it clear the “the feeling isn’t mutual.”
“I am so happy with my life after leaving [‘Housewives’]. It wasn’t funny to me. It was very painful,” says Danielle, the current host of Wealth TV’s ‘Social.’ “I’m really happy in my life,” she says. “I have so much that I’ve just begun to do.”
For starters, controversial housewife Danielle Staub will not be returning, and that is a-okay with Caroline Manzo, who threatened to leave the show if Bravo allowed Danielle to come back.
The HollywoodLife caught up with bothAndy Cohenand Caroline this week and they both seem to agree on one thing. “Without Danielle, it’ll be great!” Andy said.
“People worry that the show won’t be what it was. I’m glad it’s not what it was,” Caroline stated. “Now, it’s drama that’s memorable.” Caroline also confirms there will be some new housewives this season, reportedly Melissa Gorga (Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law) and Kathy Wakile (Teresa’s first cousin).
“There’s a couple of new faces,” Caroline reveals. “It’s a very different dynamic this year. It’s a lot of fun.”
And despite reports that the third season finished filming last December, Andy states that “Jersey is filming right now,” adding that “it’s going really well.”
“It’s the best it ever was,” Caroline finalizes. And in a separate interview with E! Online, Caroline reveals that she doesn’t miss her sister Dina Manzo on the show because she gets to see Dina in real life, while also hinting at some drama with Teresa according to E!.
“Oh Teresa! You’re gonna have to watch and see, there’s a tremendous dynamic going on,” Caroline said. “My beautiful daughter and sons are doing great, they’re loves lives come into play. Interesting things go on this year.”
Bravo has yet to officially announce the premiere date for season 3 but all signs point to sometime in May.
As for Danielle, who is rumored to be working on a spinoff reality show about her personal life, her new show called ‘Social’ premiered on Wealth TV days ago and according to our reader ZOSO666, the show is a train wreck. “It is awful. I want my 1/2 hour back but I had to watch it. She is like the white trash version of Robin Leach. I don’t suspect it should last too long,” added Zoso. Ouch!

After it was reported earlier this year that Melissa had signed on to join the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey, sources immediately informed us that the two ladies do not get along – at all. In fact, just two months ago, it was reported that Teresa and her hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at the christening ceremony of Melissa’s son. Joe reportedly punched Teresa’s brother/Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga, leading to an all out fight between the men and some other party guests.
According to RadarOnline, the two sister-in-laws seem to have put the bad blood behind them, well at least for now. The above photo was taken at Melissa’s Christmas party which took place on Saturday night. “Teresa may have ignored some guests,” said a source. “But Melissa and Teresa got along great and had a lot of fun dancing together.”
Also in attendance at the party was Jacqueline Laurita and hubby Chris, Caroline and Al Manzo, Kim G., and the other new NJ housewife Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s first cousin.
All signs point to this party marking the end of filming for the Real Housewives of NJ’s 3rd season. Melissa also tweeted the following this morning – “Time to wrap……..” Perhaps she’s just referring to wrapping gifts. From what we have heard, the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives will be explosive! With a lot of drama that will have you saying Danielle who? Bravo has yet to officially announce the airing date.
In other NJ news, Danielle Staub continues her attempt to stay relevant in the press. The latest is an interview with RadarOnline, in which she reveals her new year’s resolution is to have her former NJ costars “stop being mean girls!”
She adds, “Collectively stop being mean girls and resolve to be nice to everyone. Period. There is a much better existence.” Danielle also claims “I tried to [make amends] when I said goodbye at the reunion, when I walked away and quit.” Umm shouldn’t she be busy filming her “spin-off show?” More photos from the party below.

The NY Post is reporting that Albie andChris Manzohave been given their own spin-off show by the Bravo network.
According to the Post, sources close to the Real Housewives of New Jerseyextras stars reveal that not only have they signed a contract with Bravo, but they have also begun filming the new untitled series.
Oddly enough, it was reported just last month that the boys moved out of their mom Caroline Manzo’s home and into their own bachelor pad. “The boys were looking for some independence,” an insider revealed. “They’re getting a ton of attention from the ladies and needed their own space.”
While a Bravo rep tells the Post that “Bravo has not made any announcement,” Rob Shuter of Popeater tweeted over the weekend that Bravo sources told him the boys are not getting their own spin-off show. Only time will reveal if the story is indeed true.
In other Real Housewives of NJ news, everyone’s favorite bankrupt housewifeTeresa Giudicerecently started her own blog on her official website, teresagiudice.com, on which she writes about her public appearances and family life.
However it was a recent blog post about her fellow castmate Jacqueline Laurita that got people talking. In the post, Teresa praises Jacqueline and then appears to take a swipe at her sister-in-law and newest NJ housewife Melissa Gorga. Well, we’ll let you be the judge. Teresa’s post is below –
“As if you didn’t already know, she is the sweetest, nicest, most genuine person you could ever meet. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body and she always has your back. She’s also so funny. We have the best time together. And she’s a GREAT mom! (And no, she doesn’t have a nanny either! The only person I know with a nanny is my sister-in-law Melissa. (I’m not judging if you have a nanny, that’s cool, it’s just not my style.)”
Teresa then added the following update after a fan accused her of taking a dig at Melissa –
“I didn’t even occur to me that you might take it as a dig, because it wasn’t meant that way at all. I’m sorry if it seemed like an insult. I was only stating facts because people keep sending me questions on Facebook and Twitter about who of us has nannies. I know you are a great mom, and as I have said many times on my Twitter and Facebook and my website I will never say anything bad about my family. “
We’re thinking this might have been Teresa’s way of getting back at Melissa, who accused her of using her mother as a nanny in a facebook posting last year. Teresa has since updated the blog post, deleting any reference to Melissa. We were however able to get a screen shot of the original post thanks to Google cache. The screen shot is below.

Days after we reported the news of Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe Giudice having to stand trial for bankruptcy fraud in July, 2011, their attorney is now speaking out on their behalf.
James Kridel, attorney for the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars, will have to prove to the bankruptcy court come 2011 that his clients’ bankruptcy filing is indeed legit and should not be overturned. Roberta DeAngelis, the attorney in the U.S. Trustees Office who evaluated the Giudices’ filing, has recommended that the court not grant their Chapter 7 petition due to fraud. DeAngelis accused the Giudices of concealing assets, hiding income, providing false information to the IRS, etc.
Kridel’s strategy seems to be to avoid the trial all together. “I am going to be sending a letter to the US Trustees Office because I would like to resolve with them their issue rather than have to try it,” Kridel told RadarOnline.
Kridel however claims he isn’t doing this out of fear of losing the case or desperation. “I’m not doing it out of desperation; I’m doing it in their [debtors and US Trustees] best interest. That’s the next step. But ultimately the ball is in their court.”
Kridel also adds that he will argue that his clients “have been punished enough.” Kridel stated, “Instead of just looking at it as ‘Joe Giudice,’ it is a family and to deny a discharge in this case would destroy this family. Some of the family members are clearly not responsible for anything that occurred here.”
Good luck with that Kridel. In other NJ news, RadarOnline is also reporting that Caroline Manzo’s sons – Albie and Chris Manzo – have officially moved out of their mama bear’s cave and into their own bachelor pad!
“The guys decided to get their own place because they are young and good looking and famous,” a source close to the family told Radar. “They get a lot of attention from women. They are growing up and they need their privacy.”
The source adds that Caroline is however having a hard time adjusting to her new empty nest. “Their mom is really sad because she is really close to her sons,” added the insider.

“Alright for the record, Life&Style=garbage, RadarOnline=flies who eat poop off of garbage. You will all see the truth when Season 3 airs. xx.”
Above is what Teresa Giudice had to say about media outlets RadarOnline for reporting that she and hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at her nephew’s christening, and Life & Style magazine for doing a cover story alleging Joe was cheating on her.
Appearing in the latest issue of In Touch magazine, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star attempts to put an end to the cheating rumors that continue to plague her marriage.
Teresa adamantly denies all the cheating reports and says she isn’t even giving any of it a second thought. “I know my husband – I’m not covering for him,” she insists. “If I knew he cheated on me, I would leave the guy in two seconds.”
As for how’s she’s so certain, Teresa adds, “You get that feeling when you have a boyfriend, fiance, whatever – you get a feeling when it’s not right. By the way they act, and the way they interact with you, you can just tell.”
Teresa does admit however that the constant reports have changed the way she and Joe live their lives as they are both now very careful in their actions when they go out. “I was at a bar [with girlfriends] and some guy asked me to dance,” Teresa shares. “I said no, because I knew that if I dance with him, it would be all over the papers.”
She also states that Joe no longer likes to go to clubs without her because “if a female fan comes up to him and takes a picture with him, it will be all over the place. People will think he’s on a date.”
Things are so great with Teresa and Joe that they are even considering trying for baby #5! “If you ask my husband, I’m sure he would want to have more,” Teresa says. “I did go to a psychic once, and she said I was going to have five. You never know!”
And finally, Teresa confirms to the mag that she has no intention of leaving the Housewives series. She also denies there is any trouble in her friendship with co-star Caroline Manzo, despite multiple reports stating otherwise.
