Jacqueline Laurita


Last night the Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about giving thanks even if you don’t want to. Teresa is thankful her friends still put up with her after all her drama, Jacqueline is thankful that Ashley finally learned how to operate a vacuum cleaner, Caroline is thankful Vito hasn’t proposed so Lauren won’t be leaving her, Melissa is thankful that she has Non-Juicy (?) and Kathy is thankful she can bake. And if I were friends with Kathy, I would be thankful for that too.

The episode started out with Melissa and Non-Juicy grocery shopping for Thanksgiving where Melissa grabs some butt that isn’t Joe’s! Melissa spends the entire shopping trip whining at Non-Juicy until I just zoned out and pretended I was watching Extreme Couponing. Meanwhile at Kathy’s house more yummy cooking is happening since she is making all the deserts for the Gorga-giving celebration. Ruining a perfectly delicious scene is talk of Teresa and Non-Juicy’s “sibling rivalry.” Kathy’s hubby Rich mentions that if Teresa shows up at Gorga-giving something interesting might happen to prevent food coma like another BRAWL! Oh Rich, don’t give the Bravo editors any ideas… Kathy is so distracted by all the Teresa talk she burns some pies and freaks out.

Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was all about the careful, delicate process of making amends which is almost as painstaking and precarious as writing the perfect cookbook. Melissa changes strategies regarding the infamous feud, Kathy gets the Caroline-treatment, Teresa decides she is going to learn how to write, Jacqueline deals with bratty friends and bratty daughters, and Caroline is forced to mediate some Gorga-drama.

Things start off with a flabbergasted Kathy telling husband Rich about the events at the Posche Trashion Show. Kathy, worried that she may be blackballed from The Brownstone after angering The Caroline, needs to make amends and explain she wasn’t trying to pull a Gorga and cause a big scene in public. After all, she couldn’t help it because she was talking to Teresa and it’s in Teresa’s genes to flip out in public and cause a HUGE scene. Kathy is also surprised that her attempt to have an adult conversation with Teresa didn’t go well. Wait – hasn’t Kathy known Teresa her entire life? How is this shocking to her?

On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey they celebrated Halloween with some serious drama and some serious fashion. The annual Posche Trashion show is back with Teresa, Jacqueline, and Melissa as models, Caroline puts her foot down on family drama, Kathy tries an unsuccessful Gorga mediation. Oh and The Kims re-emerge!

The show started on a happy note with Teresa and her Made For TV family, Caroline and Jacqueline getting together with their kids to carve Jack-o-lanterns with Danielle’s face on them. Scary! Naturally they begin talking about the Christening Day Masacre, and all the kids are pushed aside somewhere so the ladies can dish. While Teresa is telling the story of how push came to shove came to insanity, Caroline is standing there, arms crossed, giving the hairy eyeball and reminding Teresa that it’s her family, and family’s first – so she better fix things, because after all, the Posche Fashion Show is happening. Frankly, I’m shocked anyone would invite Teresa after last years “incidents,” but hey, The Kims love them some dramz! Tersea puts Caroline in her place by declaring she doesn’t need any advice from mommy dearest, because she is the matriarch of her family and knows just how to manipulate handle them.

On Monday night, the Real Housewives of New Jersey, minus Teresa Giudice, gathered together at the Brownstone to celebrate the show’s season premiere!

Housewives Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile were all in attendance along with their families. As for Teresa, she held a separate premiere/‘Fabulicious’ book launch party for herself at the Tribecca Night Club in Fort Lee, NJ. And yes that is Simon van Kempen pictured with the ladies as he and his wife Alex also attended the party.

The Montville Patch was on hand to cover the event, both snapping the housewives and interviewing them. The general consensus amongst the housewives was that watching the premiere episode, with the now infamous brawl, was an emotional experience. Melissa stated that if you didn’t cry by the end of the episode you “had a heart of stone.”

Caroline admitted that the episode was hard to watch but added you have to “take the ride with us.” Ticket prices for the premiere party were between $75 and $200 with the Patch reporting that “proceeds from the premiere party benefited several charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, To Write Love on Her Arms and Stop Child Trafficking Now.” More photos from the event below!

Meanwhile it seems we the viewers do love us some trashtastic television! Why? Well because the Monday night premiere broke all kinds of records for the Bravo network. With over 2.87 million total viewers tuning in, the NJ Housewives delivered the highest rated season premiere in the network’s history! The episode also helped Bravo earn its best Monday night ever.

*Also wanted to note that we will no longer be doing the weekly reality stars photo posts. We will start doing more photo posts through out the week, instead of posting it all on Saturdays. Thanks!

Welcome to the third season of Real Housewives of New Jersey! This season – whew – it looks like we’re in for a wild one! While the Real Housewives of New York may have needed to be ‘re-edited’ for more drama – New Jersey probably needed to be re-edited for less!

Teresa Giudice is ba-ack: angrier, crazier, bronzer, bossier, and apparently less broke because “mama is bringin’ home the bacon!” Caroline Manzo is worried about her adult children leaving the nest (wasn’t that the same issue she had last season?), Jacqueline Laurita is still dealing with good old Ashley, and we are introduced to Teresa’s maybe crazier relatives new housewives Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile.

The 90 minute premiere episode was chock full of crazy as it opens with a Christening party for new housewife Melissa’s son, Giuseppe. It has all the attributes of a classic NJ Housewife Christening party: giant ice sculptures, an open bar, smarmy guidos with open shirts and gold chains, an oil painting of the baby, a lavish sit-down dinner, a knock down, drag out fight… Oh! Wait a second – maybe most Christenings don’t involve full-on fistfights. Well, Melissa had to one-up Teresa’s party from last year! See, Melissa is Teresa’s sister-in-law and is married to Teresa’s brother who is also named Joe, but is not Juicy. Teresa and Melissa are “not exactly best friends,” in fact they are pretty much enemies. As it was well documented that Teresa threatened to quit the show if Melissa was included, but then she realized mama needs that paycheck!

Surprise, surprise Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice isn’t getting along with fellow castmates – especially the ones she’s related to!

According to Life & Style, the always sweet and easy to get along with Mrs. Giudice has taken a turn for the worse and is terrorizing fellow NJ Housewives with her demanding, diva behavior. In fact, the theme for this season might as well be: Teresa Gone Wild!

She is even going so far to talk smack about former BFF Caroline Manzo by “criticizing her cooking and the fact that she does her grown sons’ laundry,” in the forward for her new cookbook Fabulicious!. The article also warns fans should expect further jabs from Teresa during her upcoming book tour: “Teresa plans to take the feud further, attacking Caroline while she’s not there to defend herself.” Uh-oh! I can’t wait to see Caroline call Teresa a “clown” next!

An insider reports that Caroline and Jacqueline Laurita are beyond annoyed with Ms. Diva New Jersey: “they don’t know how much more they can take. This isn’t the woman Teresa used to be.” Imagine, reality TV fame changing someone… So, what’s the reason for Teresa’s increasingly demanding behavior?

Since Teresa’s husband Jr. Mafia Joe is having all sorts of money trouble, including filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million and being arrested for multiple driving infractions, it is now Teresa who is “bringing home the bacon” and acting as the main breadwinner for the family of six (and hopefully no more on the way!) with her two cookbook. Teresa’s harder than usual to handle behavior is the result of needing Bravo’s paycheck more than ever so she decided to replace the ousted Danielle Staub as the show’s villainess and wants to become “the most valuable star on Housewives.” A source reveals to Life & Style: “She says Jacqueline’s boring and Caroline’s old. She thinks they can’t do the show without her.” Well – she may have a point – who else is crazy enough to flip a table during dinner?

Unfortunately, Teresa’s not just having issues with money, her husband, and her friends; she is also having problems with her new castmates – who she happens to be related to! Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (who is married to Teresa’s brother Joe) and her cousin Kathy Wakile, are the newest Jersey Housewives, and it has been well documented that Teresa did not want her sister-in-law on the show. In fact, she even threatened to quit if she was brought on, but then Teresa remembered she needs the money, so nevermind that!

Teresa, herself, tells E! Online a different story, claiming Melissa and Kathy never even told her about their participation in the show: “I didn’t find out until I had heard from Bravo,” she said. “I got the phone call from Bravo and I was like blown away. I was like, ‘Really?’ And then that’s what made me a little upset because I was like, ‘Wow, it would have been nice for my brother to call me or my cousin to call me. It’s just weird to me. It really is. Just blows my mind.”

The E! Online article explains Teresa and Joe were once best friends, but the relationship apparently fell part after he married Melissa. Teresa further explains she used to like her sister-in-law until she started getting more attention than Teresa: “I wanted him to get married so bad. That was his third fiancée, so we just wanted him to get married. We always said we wanted our kids to grow up together. And I really wanted her to become the sister I never had.” She even asked Melissa to be the godmother for her daughter, Gabriella.

Teresa claims the strained relationship she has with her family “breaks my heart,” and “that’s why you’re going to see a totally different side of me this season. It’s really sad. I cry a lot on the show and it’s very hard for me.” A different side of Teresa? A side that’s not volatile, argumentative, and violent? Well, it must not be too different because: “in the premiere of season three, a full-on brawl actually breaks out during Melissa and Joe’s christening party for their son after they exchange nasty words with Teresa.” Yikes!

Well the good news is we can likely expect just as much drama without Danielle Staub! Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres May 16th at 10p EST on Bravo.

Will you be watching this season? Do you think Teresa’s behavior will have taken a turn for the worse?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3

The first ladies of New Jersey are back!

Bravo announced today that the third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey will premiere with a 90-minute episode on Monday, May 16 at 9/8c.

As widely reported, there are two new housewives – both family members of Teresa Giudice. Melissa Gorga, Teresa’s sister-in-law whom she hates, and Kathy Wakile, Teresa’s first cousin are the new additions.

Returning alongside Teresa are Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. Bravo promises “the drama picks up where last season left off when holidays are celebrated, children leave the nest and tensions run high between housewives.” Despite the rumors that she had left the show, Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes is back for the new season.

And starting on June 12, the series will move to Sunday nights at 10/9c for the remainder of the season. The season 3 trailer is below! -

 

 

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON 3 TRAILER AND THE TWO NEW HOUSEWIVES?


Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita‘s appeared in a recent issue of Life & Style magazine during which she showed off her new bod.

Jacqueline tells the mag she gained 55 pounds while pregnant with her son Nicolas, but still had 30 pounds to lose after giving birth in June 2009.

And today, thanks to regular workouts and Medifast meal replacements (including shakes, soups and bars, all supplemented with one meal of protein and veggies per day), Jacqueline, who is 5-foot-3, has trimmed down to her current weight of 120 pounds. “I lost 12 pounds the first two weeks,” Jacqueline, 40, tells Life & Style. “I’m able to get back into my old jeans — I can’t believe it!”

Jacqueline also reveals she can’t wait to show off her slimmer figure on the NJ Housewives, set to return later this year. “It’s going to be the best season we’ve ever had,” she says.

In other NJ news, Teresa Giudice tweeted an old school photo of she and her brother Joe Gorga this week. “It’s me and my brother at my sweet 16..,” she wrote. That photo is below.

Also below is a photo of Teresa and hubby Joe during their recent vacation to the Dominican Republic. The same vacation in which TMZ reported that some NJ Housewives’ cast members got into a bar brawl.

Teresa also blogged today that her new cookbook “Fabulicious” will be released May 4th. The relevance of this is that it’s very likely the third season of the RHONJ will be debuting around that date.
