Gia Giudice

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 another interview 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 Giudice was 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!

ARE YOU SURPRISED JOE GORGA SKIPPED GIA’S BIRTHDAY PARTY? THOUGHTS ON THE NEWS? SHOULD JOE HAVE ACCEPTED THE PLEA AGREEMENT?

It seems there is never a dull moment with the Real Housewives of New Jersey and the cast works overtime to keep the drama coming day after day. I guess they don’t want us to forget about them! Surprisingly this latest news update has nothing to do with Teresa Giudice squabbling with any Housewives! Shocked? I know — me too. It also has nothing to with Melissa Gorga making backhanded comments about anyone! Shocked? I know — me too.

As well all know Teresa is moving onto other projects besides being a hot-tempered Housewife and recently announced that she will be starring on Celebrity Apprentice. It seems that Terea’s stint on the show was a great experience for her and she gets along famously with The Donald.

Appearing on New York Live, Teresa warned fans that while some tempers flared Celebrity Apprentice was a totally different reality show experience. “I loved it. At first we are working 20 hours a day — getting up at 4:30 a.m., sometimes working until 2:00 in the morning, but overall I have to say it was an amazing experience and if I had to do it all over again, I would.”

Even though there were still some mean girl antics, no one let it get in the way of professionalism. I mean, what’s a little drama when it’s for a good cause, right? “The girls are very catty you know, but this was different from Housewives. We were asked to do tasks and we did them. Donald is amazing. It’s about charity, so it’s totally different from Housewives.”

Teresa admits there’s “definitely clashing” as there are “a lot of us Italians on the show,” but for the most part she wasn’t giving anything away about her rumored dispute with Victoria Gotti, whom Teresa described as “lovely.”

As for her relationship with the show’s infamous host, Teresa loved working with him! “Donald is amazing,” Teresa gushed. “He just said ‘Teresa, I see a different side of you. This is not the Teresa I know.’ And I’m like that’s what I wanted everyone to see,” Teresa regales. “There are going to be a lot of surprises on the show.”

You can check out the video below. Teresa also talks the differences between Housewives and CA and other aspects of her life.

While things are looking up for Teresa professionally, her husband Juicy Joe Giudice was recently indicted which might land him in prison for up to ten years. On the very same day he was indicted Joe proved he is a Giudice at heart as he shopped through his pain and was seen “trying on a mink coat and hat!” I can tell he’s taking this whole felony thing very seriously. As well as this whole paying back his creditors thing…

Apparently, the thought of leaving his marble mansion behind for a cell hasn’t really sunk in for Joe, who continues to put on a happy face. “Everything he does he laughs at,” a source tells Us Weekly. “He doesn’t take anything seriously.” Teresa is reportedly furious and embarrassed by her husbands legal incident. And frankly, I would be too!

Moving on to another Joe who also has some problems managing his money, Non-Juicy Joe Gorga recently settled a lawsuit brought against him by a Paterson window company.

According to NorthJersey.com, Joe owed the Starlite Window Manufacturing Co. Inc. an approximate $25,000 for unpaid services and agreed to settle out of court for an undisclosed amount before the case went to trial. Starlite’s attorney Darren Del Sardo revealed that the exact settlement amount would remain confidential by “mutual agreement” of both parties in the case.

According to Joe, he hired the Starlite to install windows in the Courtland Suites apartment complex in Paterson and was given an estimate of $100,000 for the work. During the course of the project the company increased the price by another $30,000. Joe willingly paid the originally quoted $100k for the job but refused to pay the additional $30 grand which resulted in a lawsuit against his company, Gorga Enterprises Inc.

Starlite decided to go through the Passaic County state Superior Court’s Civil Law Division to recoup their loses on the basis that Gorga Enterprises “entered into a contract” with the company “from December 2008 to January 2009 to deliver $25,577.19 worth of windows.”

Joe claims he had no formal (a.k.a. written) agreement with the company for the monies owed because “he does business with a handshake.” Joe, a developer who works with large-scale projects, claims “discrepancies happen all the time” in his line of work and people “always want to sue you.”

Indeed, court records show that Joe and Gorga Enterprises, Inc have been the subject of 26 liens and civil court judgments for small-claims matters mainly less than $15,000. In 2010 Joe was sued for breach of contract by another New Jersey company for the installation of a fire suppression system in that same apartment complex.

The most interesting thing about this entire situation is Starlite Window’s attorney Darren Del Sardo. This is not Mr. Del Sardo’s first affiliation with the RHONJ as in 2009 he represented former Housewife Danielle Staub in a lawsuit against her ex-boyfriend over his attempt to release sex tapes starring the racy mom of two. The lawsuit was eventually dropped.

He then represented Danielle again when she filed a complaint against Ashley Holmes for ripping out her extensions during Season 2′s Posche Fashion Show. Del Sardo was seen in an episode walking with Danielle from the courthouse with Kim G looking like a “broke down Sex And The City,” Jacqueline Laurita famously quipped.

Oh that Danielle – those were the good old days when your cray-cray brought the drama and the laughs and no one was hating on their family and ruining their child’s welcoming into God’s kingdom with a knock-down, drag-out drunken brawl.

And speaking of family drama – you know there is no RHONJ news without some – G-to-the-eeya Giudice turned 11 this weekend and celebrated with a huge blowout befitting of a queen. No just kidding, Teresa actually had a modest family party for her eldest daughter and posted photos of the celebration on her website.

“Being a mom is the best gift I could have ever been given. Gia was the best gift I’ve ever been given. All my girls are,” Teresa wrote. “I love you, Gia! You are a beautiful, amazing girl and I’m so proud of the young lady you are turning into.” Very sweet.

If you are wondering if Joe and Melissa were guests at the party, indeed they were not! Joe Tweeted “wish I had an invite” when asked by fans if they were present. Melissa added that they called instead and wished Joe’s goddaughter a Happy Birthday over the phone. “we called I think that was much better,” Melissa explained.

Photos of Gia’s fete are below. I cannot believe how big the first girls of Jersey are becoming! It seems like Gia was so little when the series started. Happy Belated Birthday Gia from all of us here at Reality Tea!

Celebrity Apprentice premieres on NBC, Frebruary 12th at 9/8c. I, for one, cannot wait to watch!

Missing in action was Jacqueline Laurita who has also been absent from recent publicity events and interviews for the show.

G to the I-A Giudice now has her own twitter account!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice confirmed yesterday that the twitter handle @TrueGia does indeed belong to her 10-year-old daughter Gia.

“Alright so Gia finally has a Twitter account! It’s @TrueGia It’s really her, but her mgr @XistTalentMaria monitors it so be nice! She’s 10!” wrote Teresa, adding, “Love love love you @TrueGia !!! Can’t believe your first tweet was to @BravoAndy though and not me! xx.”

Bravo’s own Andy Cohen also welcomed the 5th grader to the twitter! Andy tweeted to Gia: “@TrueGia omg gia i didn’t see this tweet! i need you to come demo your fierce runway walk on wwhl! XOX.”

Some are however criticizing Teresa for allowing her young daughter to own a twitter account, citing she might be too young to handle all the attention, both good and bad. Teresa however assures us Gia’s account is monitored by an adult.

“Gia’s Twitter @TrueGia is monitored & filtered by her mgr @XistTalentMaria so she will only see/respond to nice msgs xx,” wrote Teresa. It appears this is to help Gia’s career as she’s trying to get into acting and modeling.

As for G to the I-A, the little one appears beyond excited to be on twitter and has been tweeting up a storm. Below are some of Gia’s adorable tweets -

TELL US – OKAY FOR 10-YEAR-OLD GIA TO TWEET? OR DO YOU THINK SHE’S TOO YOUNG?

In two new interviews, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga talks her music career, the current status of her relationship with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, as well as her take on Jacqueline Laurita’s drama with daughter Ashley.

While talking to the Hollywood Life, Melissa discusses the toll the Gorga/Giudice feud has had on Teresa’s daughter Gia. “Gia’s different, but the kids are still young enough where they don’t know what’s going on [between Teresa and I],” states Melissa, adding that things between her and Teresa are actually OK at the moment, but more on that below.

And when it comes to Ashley Holmes’ volatile relationship with her mother Jacqueline, Melissa actually defends Ashley, 20.“I’ve never seen a bad thing out of Ashley,” Melissa explains. “She’s very respectful to me, to all adults around her.”

“It’s that time of her life, she’s kind of not sure where she wants to be or what she wants to do and it’s a little frustrating for Jacqueline,” adds Melissa, also saying that if she ever has to experience something similar with her now six-year-old daughter Antonia, she’ll hope to work through it. “I want to show her that I’m her friend, but I also want to be her mother. I don’t want her to hate me, but I want her to respect me.”

What is clear is that Melissa will not hesitate to take parenting pointers from the one and only Caroline Manzo! “I look at her and I see a lot of my family with them,” Melissa says of The Caroline. “I love Mama Caroline!”

Melissa also discusses her new single “On Display,” which is currently available for purchase on iTunes. She explains what the song is really all about: “It’s about being on display in your everyday life. It’s your first day at your new job, people are looking at you and watching you… People are looking at you, they’re waiting for you to do something wrong, but you’re not going. You’re standing tall.”

When asked which housewife she would most like to do a duet with, Melissa is smart enough to name the only talented housewife RHOA’s Kandi Burruss!

And in a separate interview with UsWeekly, Melissa reveals that Teresa actually likes her new single, while also opening up some more about the current state of their relationship citing some days are better than others.

“Sometimes it’s awkward. When we watch the show things are said that we had no idea were even said,” says Melissa. “The kids had a play date recently. Are we best friends or together every single day? No. But we try for the kids. At the end of the day we’re family and we are going to be throwing birthday parties and we are going to be at family dinners here and there.”

And speaking of Teresa, she has yet to update her twitter page since last Sunday, Aug. 28, the same day Bravo aired the RHONJ episode which showed her husband Joe Giudice using a gay slur. Bravo has also yet to post the housewives latest blogs but the minute Teresa defends responds to the episode and/or Joe’s comments, we’ll be sure to let you know!

Finally, following her move to Los Angeles over a week ago, Ashley Holmes posted some new pictures of her apartment on her blog. Those pics are below!

No new episode of the RHONJ will air tonight. The show returns with a new episode next week.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice took a break from gracing magazine covers touting fake divorces and yet to be conceived pregnancies this week to actually open up about those topics during a “Twitterview” with her fans.

In the twitter interview organized by Celebuzz yesterday, Teresa revealed her regrets in doing the RHONJ, talked about those pesky divorce rumors regarding her and hubby Joe Giudice, and also revealed if she’s really planning to have more children.

When a fan asked Teresa if she regrets doing the RHONJ, she gave a surprising reply of yes. “Gonna be honest, I’m thankful for the blessings it brought but yes, I do regret it esp when they cast my family :(,” wrote Teresa adding, “I would never have done the show if I thought it would be me & my inlaws. No fame or opport is worth it. #family1st.” This isn’t the first time Teresa has made mention of the show’s adverse effects on her family though she has yet to mention any desire to leave the show.

When it comes to her marriage with hubby Joe – some tabloids have them divorcing – Teresa revealed they are doing great. “We are great, thank u! the stuff in the tabloids ab us divorcing is complete BS. our family is together & happy xx,” she wrote. So can we expect a new Giudice baby in the future, a son to be precise based on last week’s In Touch cover story featuring Teresa? Well she reveals uncertainty. “I’d love a boy and I know Joe would too but I think I’m done. If it happens it happens, but 4 is enough!”

Teresa also shared she is currently working on her third cookbook. As for her favorite housewives series other than the NJ series of course, Teresa reveals she’s a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Love Lisa & Kyle,” she added.

In other NJ news, last week Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorga revealed her 5-year-old daughter Antonia Gorga will be making her acting debut in a Snazaroo commercial on the Nickelodeon network. Melissa also posted photos of her 3 kids visiting the Jersey Boardwalk this weekend. Those pics are below!

And this week, Teresa also revealed her daughter Gia Giudice participated in a dance competition in Florida during which she came in first place. Teresa blogged, “Gia and I are finally home from Florida. We had such a great time and she did so great! She won 1st place and got 5 stars for her team, then she got 4-1/2 stars out of 5 for her personal routine which she only learned in February.” Photos of Teresa with Gia below!

And finally, below is a video of the NJ Housewives, Caroline, Teresa & Melissa, during their appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday -

Following the volatile season premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which included a brawl started by her brother, Teresa Giudice is now speaking out once again.

She graces the latest cover of In Touch Weekly magazine (out on stands Friday) under the heading “Fame Destroyed My Family.” Things reached a boiling point for Teresa during the Christening ceremony of her nephew as her younger brother Joe Gorga called her “garbage” in addition to a nasty words of exchange with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

Teresa, 39, tells In Touch that she won’t “stoop down to Melissa’s level” and refuses to use the word “jealous” to describe Joe & Melissa, though Teresa’s husband Joe Guidice has no problem doing just that. “Melissa is the most jealous person in the world, and she’s a liar,” says Joe.

Teresa also reveals that the situation with her brother is causing marital problems, with Joe telling In Touch, “I told her a bunch of times not to mention the brother in front of me—I don’t want to hear it and when I hear the name I get pissed off…There have been a couple of times when she has said the name, and I almost did leave.” Joe adds that he once ignored Teresa for an entire week after a heated spat.

And when it comes to Joe’s mounting legal problems, he blames the Bravo hit show stating that being more recognizable has made him and Teresa targets. “It seems like nobody ever went to jail for the stupid thing I went to jail for,” said Joe. That stupid thing is a DUI he received in January of last year. He served 10 days in jail in September. As for his most recent arrest in March, Teresa says she will continue to “stand by” her man, while Joe’s confident he will be exonerated.

The most shocking part of the story is when Teresa reveals that her eldest daughter Gia has been getting bullied at school since her aunt and uncle (Melissa and Joe) joined the show. “The other day at school, a kid went up to my daughter and said, ‘Your family is embarrassing.’ She told me she was crying,” revealed Teresa. Wowzers. Thank goodness Gia’s classmates missed the episodes with the table flipping, shoving of Andy Cohen or the humiliating and very public bankruptcy that made headlines last year. But all snark aside, it’s always sad to see the kids suffer for the consequences of the adults around them. Here’s to hoping things get better for little Gia.

And lastly, Teresa reveals that the turmoil has been especially hard for her sick dad who suffers from emphysema. “It’s breaking my heart,” says Teresa. “My brother knows how sick our dad is. I don’t know why he would do what he did.” She’s referring to the actions of her brother Joe when he began yelling at their dad during the Christening drama.

Oddly enough, Teresa makes no mention of a desire to quit the show in the article. You can read more of Teresa’s interview as well as see photos from her past in the current issue of In Touch. A bigger image of the cover is below.

In other Teresa news, move over Rachael Ray! As Teresa reveals she wants her own cooking show. While talking to the Miami Herald last week, Teresa, who has written two cookbooks, one of which made the NY Times best seller list, revealed her desire to get her own show.

It seems while the RHONJ has caused a strain for Teresa, it could also help achieve her latest goal. “When I first got into this, I didn’t do it for the money. I did it for fun,” said Teresa. “Now hopefully I’ll get my own cooking show. Maybe it’ll take me there.’’

Well if anything Teresa’s show would be entertaining, at least the part where she tries to pronounce her “ingredientces!”
