Well, it seems that it's not just the Fresco Italian restaurant in Montclair, New Jersey that is disappointing members of the community for allowing Bravo to use it to film scenes for Real Housewives of New Jersey. Local fans of the show were also disappointed…not in the eatery, but in the women dining inside.
Last week, the restaurant posted (and then promptly deleted after negative feedback) some pictures of Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice eating at Fresco surrounded by lights and cameras. Fans who were able to catch the Facebook status before it was taken down rushed to the restaurant in hopes of seeing their favorite RHONJ ladies. You see where I'm going with this, right?
Well, we all know that Real Housewives of New Jersey can be slightly, um, polarizing, right? In general, I think fans have the strongest feelings for this group of women, whether they are loyal to the core fans or staunch haters. The ladies of the Garden State can certainly bring out the emotion in their viewers!
That was made abundantly clear recently when a local restaurant allowed Bravo to film scenes for the show. The Fresco Montclair was hoping that posting photos of filming on its Facebook page would bring with it some publicity…and boy did it!

Nothing like reality TV to break up a few relationships! This year several reality stars called it quits on their longtime relationships, sometimes shocking the viewing public. And some PR stunts just didn't pan out. Unfortunately many of those meltdowns included plenty of scandal!
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Well I know that hell hasn't frozen over because it's pushing eighty degrees here on the coast of South Cackalacki, but I don't have any other rational explanation for this reality news. Much like the Grinch, it appears that some ladies in the Garden State have hearts that are growing and growing. 'Tis the season, right?
Past, present, and future Real Housewives of New Jersey stars–and sisters–and technically still sisters-in-law (ya follow me?)–Caroline and Dina Manzo have reconciled after a long and anti-climactic feud. I know, I know. I can't believe it either!
