Last night was the much awaited season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And I mean much awaited because we are all desperate to escape the meandering Gorgadice feud storyline which has dominated the show for three seasons.
With majorly dropping ratings this season, we're hoping next season is a season of change. But until then, our favorite existing Jersey stars weigh in on last night's episode.
Teresa Giudice did not comment – clearly her appearance on WWHLsaid enough. As for Melissa Gorga she used the opportunity to promote her various endeavors – currently a controversial "marriage bible" – and retweeted that this season had the "perfect ending". OooooKaaaay.
Caroline Manzo has already landed a spinoff aptly titled 'Manzo'd With Children' and in light of that has opted to leave the show. At least temporarily while she shoots a pilot for her new show! Some sources say Caroline may come back pending the spinoff's success, others say she is officially done!
My Magic Hate Ball predicts 'Try Again', Caro! I'm sorry while I think they're a sweet family, they just don't have much charisma or presence. I think that will be super boring to watch.
Dina tells Oprah's network that the show turned toxic and it was no longer an environment she enjoyed. "At the very beginning of filming we had a lot of fun," Dina confesses. "Because they weren't sure what direction the show was going into — it was before the table flip happened."
Teresa Giudice is in a hailstorm of trouble. If she thought strippergate was something to get worked up over, she hasn't seen anything like going to trial against the federal government. No amount of body glitter can save a girl now! #OrangeIsTheNewLeopard.
While I fully intend Kim D, Teresa's eternally supportive BIFFL, to make her some Posche-appropriate prison garb and stage a Big House fashion show, Teresa is still hedging bets that she'll avoid jail time.
Right now Teresa and Joe Giudice are developing a legal strategy that seems to focus on Juicy serving jail time while the Real Housewives of New Jersey star plays the innocent, doting wife who was a victim of his schemes.
The dramedy Tainted Dreams, which we reported on back in January, has finally come to fruition, with Dina filming her first scenes yesterday in New Jersey. The show explores a different concept–it's a fictional reality show about the behind-the-scenes drama of a soap opera starring a mix of reality and soap stars. However, everyone is playing a part. I'm getting confused just trying to type it!
Teresa and her daughters (three of them at least) are hanging in the Hamptons with Dina Manzo and her daughter Lexi. The former co-stars have been Tweeting up a storm, showing off their vacation pics. Teresa wrote with the above photo, "Hamptons visit with my girls @dinamanzo and @pamcolacino #greatfriends".
Teresa hasn't shared any photos of Joe or Gia, so they must've opted to stay home. I can only imagine how tough this media storm is for Gia. Adolescence is hard enough but then add into that your family is on reality TV and now being federally indicted for fraud…I truly feel for her.
