Jackie Beard Robinson

Teresa

News from the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies has been on the quiet side since the last season went off the air. Its spin-off show Manzo’d With Children isn’t even on right now. So basically no one is getting into arguments and even the self-promotion has gone down (very slightly). This week, however, there are some little slivers of news from the Garden State reality stars.

Teresa Giudice has been honored for her skills as an author – yes, I’m totally serious. Dolores Catania has basically confirmed that she and Siggy Flicker will be back on RHONJ. Also, Caroline Manzo’s daughter Lauren Manzo is about to pop out her first baby at any moment.

I get that Dolores Catania’s shtick on Real Housewives of New Jersey is that she’s the neutral party who’s friends with everyone in the cast, but I was definitely surprised to see Melissa Gorga’s former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson at the opening of the Dolores’s new gym.

There was zero indication that Dolores and Jackie were friends and the end of Jackie and Melissa‘s business arrangement was far from amicable. I get that Dolores has “been around forever” and has known most of these ladies for years, but I feel like Jackie’s appearance would not sit well with Melissa.

Envy-Reopening-Melissa-Gorga-Joe-Gorga-post

The future was not looking too bright for Melissa Gorga‘s store Envy after her partner Jackie Beard Robinson left. To add insult to injury, Jackie sold the Envy merchandise at Posche, the story owned by Melissa’s nemesis Kim DePaola. Melissa insisted that it wasn’t the end for her store though and she bounced back quicker than anyone ever expected. Envy is already up and running again and some Real Housewives cast members turned up for the re-opening party.

Of course, Melissa’s sister-in-law-turned-best-friend Teresa Giudice was there to lend her support. The always-neutral cast member Dolores Catania was on hand as well. Weirdly enough, all three of them had the same brown hair with blonde highlights. RHONJ friend (and shit stirrer) Robyn Levy came through as well. The more interesting story is who wasn’t pictured.

Melissa-Gorga-Envy

For the most part, Melissa Gorga’s main story line last season on Real Housewives of New Jersey was opening up her clothing store Envy which was basically just a multi-episode push for publicity, but I would do the same thing if I were her. Recently Envy made headlines Melissa’s former business partner Jackie Beard Robinson liquidated inventory and had a big sale at rival Kim DePaola’s store Posche. Well, Melissa got it together way sooner than any of us expected and Envy is set to reopen pretty soon.

We all know how thirsty Kim D is for attention and that she would do anything to screw with Melissa, so it is not at all shocking that she managed to involve herself in this mess. At this point, Melissa is winning this feud, but I feel like Kim D always manages to slither her way to some form of revenge.

Just because the clothes are gone and some of the fixtures yanked out at her envy boutique, that doesn’t mean Melissa Gorga is packing up and going home. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star vows to reopen and soldier on with her clothing store. Her costar Dolores Catania also weighs in her two cents on the situation between Melissa and Jackie Beard Robinson.

Melissa took to Instagram to let her fans and customers know that the show will go on. She shared, “Awesome couple of days buying at #intermezzo #jacobjavits for your spring/summer 2017 styles! All for @envybymg.” She added, “Can’t wait for you to see!! Coming back stronger than ever & doing it on my own. #bosslady.”

In just under a year, Melissa Gorga‘s business arrangement with Jackie Beard Robinson and envy boutique fell apart. Jackie wants to share her side of what happened and also wishes the Real Housewives of New Jersey star the best on reopening the store in time for the Spring season.

Jackie shared, “Just to clarify a couple things, Melissa and I were partners. I decided that I wanted out. In the termination agreement we’ve been working on for months, we decided that I would take all of the inventory and I was going to liquidate the store… because I basically own everything.”
