We've got your hottest reality star pics so far this week!
La La Anthony was looking fabulous as she promoted her new book at Barnes & Noble in Atlanta.
Gia Giudice headed off to L.A. (just in time for the weekend earthquake!) to attend the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards with a friend. Gigi Hadid was also in attendance. Free tix for all the Housewives kids, apparently!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star hit up Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with her daughters Milania and Gia. The Giudice girls were all smiles in the front row for the Just Dance with Boy Meets girl by Stacy Igel fashion show during Style360 Spring 2014 at Metropolitan Pavilion.
All kidding aside, Gia filmed a video message about cyber bullying for the brand. Gia writes, "My #BMGLiveOutLoudMoment was dealing with cyber bullying by social media. Knowing that this is a hard thing to deal with I want to inspire kids to let them know everyone is special in there own way and that they have a voice to stand up to bullies." Her video is below.
Just so you know, the always fabulous Real Housewives of New Jersey preteen G-to-the-I-A may be tweeting away, but that doesn't mean that her mom Teresa Giudice isn't monitoring what her daughter is doing online. She wants to make sure that her daughter is LOLing in the appropriate manner…and that means not using any bad language, even in abbreviations (or 'breves as I like to call them).
Gia recently tweeted the above picture with the caption "Omg.. My mom played softball. #lmfao @Teresa_Giudice" Cute, right? Not to Tre, who quickly responded, "@TrueGia don't say "f"! It's lmao for you. Wait don't say "a" either. How about lmbo?"
Some of our favorite reality TV stars may not have the best fashion sense, but they do love to try. Some of them even headed to New York Fashion Week to take in the shows (and hopefully pick up a few tips). We've rounded up some of the best photos for you.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

In case you have yet to see the video, it can be pretty much summed up in three words – Everybody vs. Tre! “I am still saddened by what transpired,” Teresa tells PEOPLE magazine of shooting the new season. “There are a lot of hurtful and shocking moments.”
When it comes to the new feud with costars Caroline Manzo andJacqueilne Laurita, Teresa says: “One thing I have noticed is that some people tend to change when the cameras are rolling.”
And in very unusual Teresa fashion, she appears to take some responsibility for her role in all the drama. “I live in the moment and nobody is perfect. We all make mistakes and in retrospect there are times where I would have handled a situation differently,” admits Teresa. Wooow.
Back to sounding like the Tre we’ve all come to know and love, Teresa makes it clear she is a fighter! “I am a strong woman and it is important for me to defend my character if it is being assassinated,” she said. “It was a very difficult to go through and especially hurtful when family is involved.”
Teresa also gave a brief interview to Star magazine, during which she made it clear her baby factory is closed for business! “If you ask Joe, he’d want us to have another baby,” reveals Teresa, 39. “But I’m happy with my four girls! I don’t want to stretch myself too thin.”
In other Teresa news, her daughter Gia Giudicewill be appearing on an upcoming episode of the controversial Toddlers & Tiaras! But fret not as Gia, 10, won’t be competing in a pageant, but rather her dance group is performing in one of the pageants.
Over the weekend, Teresa tweeted a photo of Gia in her dance costume (posted below) later adding: “So here’s the unbelievable part: the pageant Gia is performing at is serious business. It’s being taped for “Toddlers & Tiaras”…” While backstage at the pageant, Teresa also ran into one of the contestants – a little girl who was dressed like her! That photo is below as well.
Meanwhile, our RHONJ insider tells us: “Teresa is still desperate to have Gia be a star. The woman who has been Gia’s manager filmed for Toddlers and Tiaras. Gia danced with her dance group at the event. Xisit Talent is involved with pageants now.” The source alleges: “Gia is so young and hanging out with kids a LOT older then her. Gia is closer to her manager these days then her own mother.”
And finally, Teresa continues to promote her Fabellini wine as she held a bottle signing at Shoprite Liquors in Lincoln Park, NJ on March 24. Those photos are also below!

In attendance was Melissa Gorga, while Teresa’s brother Joe Giudice did not attend. The party included a dance featuring both Gia and Milania. More photos from the party below!
Meanwhile, our RHONJ insider tells us that Teresa continues her attempt to push Gia into the spotlight. “Teresa has always been desperate to have Gia in the limelight,” the source tells Reality Tea. “She wanted her to model, that didn’t work out. She wanted her to sing, that didn’t work out. Now, she has Gia in a ‘dance’ group.”
Our source continues that guests were shocked at Gia’s dance outfit. “Guests at her daughter’s birthday party were disturbed by the outfits Gia wore. She is just a little girl. Teresa dresses her like she is 16. People were shocked,” says the insider.
As for the drama that took place between Melissa and Teresa at the party, the Wetpaint blog is now confirming something did go down between the two sisters-in-law!
A source tells Wetpaint the drama began when Teresa would not even allow Melissa to be photographed. Indeed, Melissa was not pictured in any of the professional photos taken at the party. “When a photographer went over to ask Teresa if he could take a picture of Melissa, Teresa said ‘no,’ ” says the source.
Despite getting the cold shoulder from Tre, the source reveals Melissa still tried to have a good time at the party, spending most of the night with her mother-in-law. “She said ‘hello’ to Joe Giudice. He was nice, and Melissa was nice right back to him. Milania and Antonia [one of Melissa’s kids] were hugging and dancing the whole time. ”
Teresa reportedly looked annoyed watching Melissa and decided to approach her while others were getting ready to leave. “Teresa started to get loud, and you could see Melissa was struggling to keep the scene low-key, because her youngest son, Joey, was in her arms,” says the source. Yikes!
As for why non-juicy Joe wasn’t in attendance, he was reportedly upset that Teresa did not invite him to the private family party she had for Gia in early January. Doesn’t seem like the Giudice/Gorga feud will be ending anytime soon!

Poor, little Gia Giudice often seems like the only mature person in her family — extended family included — and it appears that once again this may be the case! Gia’s eleventh birthday party was this past Saturday and after much ado about whether or not Joe and Melissa Gorga were invited to said party, it appears they sort of attended.
Here’s the back story: Joe had taken to Twitter, the grown-up way of communicating with one’s sister, to put Teresa Giudice on blast for not inviting his family to Gia’s party. Teresa retaliated with an interview claiming, ‘oh yes, she did too invite them; the invites just hadn’t gotten there yet’.
In yet anotherinterview Melissa co-signed the invitation was received and made sure to inform everyone that the Gorgas would be there to represent. It’s called a PHONE, people. You know, antiquated technology by today’s standards — use one!
Gia’s party happened at a place called Space Odyssey, sans Real Housewives of New Jersey cameras, but that didn’t stop an employee (who also happens to be a fan) from gossiping on the interwebs about what took place at the shin-dig.
Here’s what transpired: An employee named Natalia Velandia who was working during the party tweeted that Teresa and Melissa got into a fight at the event. “Confused if this lady here for Teresa’s giudice party is Melissa Gorga cause like that’s my b*tch,”Natalia wrote.
When it was confirmed that it was indeed, Melissa, Natalia tweeted: “I wanted to take a picture with her but I couldn’t cause her and Teresa were arguing and my boss would’ve killed me.” A screenshot is below!
While it seems entirely plausible that Teresa and Melissa would get into a fight at Gia’s birthday, AllAboutTRH did some digging and interviewed a different employee who claims that was not the case!
“The party had 40 to 50 kids and Teresa’s oldest daughter performed with her dance group. They were also celebrating Milania’s birthday and I know Gia grabbed her on stage too,” the employee, who wished to remain anonymous, revealed. The source explains she saw Melissa and Teresa “talking and they were very close to each other. It was really loud but it didn’t look like they were arguing.”
The most shocking — and I mean shocking — reveal in all of this is that Teresa’s brother apparently NEVER CAME TO THE PARTY (yes that necessitated all-caps)!
“I saw Melissa walk in and waited for Joe Gorga to come in because there were a lot of couples at the birthday and I assumed since Joe was the God father he would be at Gia’s birthday but he surprisingly never showed up!,” the source recounts. Say what? Joe G-to-the-Orga “I love my family” never even made an appearance?
Confirming that Joe was a no-show was Space Odyssey owner Elvira Grau who also denies that Melissa and Teresa had an altercation. I am sure Melissa, Teresa, and Joe will all have a defense and a reason for his absence — and it better be a good one — but for now alls quiet on the New Jersey front with no one blabbing on Twitter. We’ll have to wait and see!
Moving right along, remember when Joe Giudicewas indicted for ID Fraud? NorthJersey.com reports that on Monday, Joe appeared in court and pleaded Not Guilty to wrongfully using documentation to illegally obtain a driver’s license and impersonation charges. According to Joe’s attorney, Miles Feinstein, he also rejected a plea agreement that offered to cap any prison sentence at five years in exchange for a guilty plea.
Mr. Feinstein believes the deal was unreasonably harsh and not equitable to deals offered to other clients facing similar charges. “I believe that because of Joe’s celebrity he is being treated differently,” he alleged. “It’s totally unfair.” Joe faces up to ten-years in prison if found guilty in a court of law!
