Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
Caroline Manzo has promised a more peaceful season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She's also promised the ladies are working to mend fences and self-reflect over the last two seasons where famewhoring and petty drama got the best of them. I certainly hope I never again have to watch a reunion like the last two!
Apparently the cast that brawls together, stays together because Caroline says her friendship with Teresa Giudice is currently a work in progress, but they're working on it!
“I’m thrilledMelissa [Gorga] and Teresa are talking, that they’re trying to work things out, that’s the way things should be," Caroline tells Naughty But Nice Rob. "Between Teresa and myself it remains to be seen. There’s been a lot of self-reflection, a lot of conversation trying to mend a lot of broken bridges. I can’t tell you how the story’s going to end because I don’t know.”
Yesterday there were quite a few reports that with Melissa and Poison Gorga attending Teresa Giudice's Milania Hair Care launch, the families were burying the hatchet and finally getting along.
Imagine – a Real Housewives of New Jersey filled with peace, love, and siblings that speak to each other. No one would watch, right? Well before anyone jumps the gun and assumes that all is tranquil, Poison is setting the record straight.
And OF COURSE everyone still hates each other. Le sigh. “It’s a dirty situation right now,” Poisontells RumorFix.
Despite Melissa and Teresa both agreeing to film another season together (possibly their last as Teresa continues to make moves towards her own show) in the hopes of rebuilding their relationship, Joe says “they are not in a good place.”
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 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!
This weekend the Gorgadices (minus Joe Gorga who has been battling a nasty case of the flu!) gathered together to try their hand at this family party thing one more time. Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe threw a big ole shindig to celebrate Gia's 12th birthday and (of course) the Bravo cameras were there to catch the whole thing for our season 5 viewing pleasure. Also in attendance: Kim DePaola and newcomerJennifer Dalton.
If the saying "a picture is worth 1000 words" is true, we're going to assume that things are hardly going okay. And if we're judging by photos alone, Kim D. looks to be at the center of some major shit stirring. You're shocked, right?
So, if you were hoping for a little bit of Kumbaya 'round the fire and no more drama, you may not want to read on and maybe skip down to the photo gallery at the very very bottom of the page! If you were secretly making plans to watch something else on Sunday nights when you heard rumors of a drama-free RHONJ season, don't delete it from your DVR just yet and keep scrolling for your glimmer of hope!
It's the casting rumors that never end! Yes, they go on and on my friend! Gossip has been swirling around the Real Housewives of New Jersey and who may or may not be joining the cast. Apparently everyone from last season will be returning, but there seems to be some confusion whether there will be any new full-fledged housewives.
Even though it's my job to blog on reality shows, and while I love every housewives franchise for different reasons, I have a hard time following the rumors swirling around the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey…mainly because it's exhausting. One minute Jacqueline Laurita is bowing out, the next minute most of the cast is being replaced by people who will actually film with Teresa Giudice. Add in the off-again-on-again family relationships and friendships, and my head is spinning!
However, this new gossip is beyond awesome. Two words: Lil' Kim. I'll get back to that later, but it's hilariously amazing. According to sources in the Garden State, all of the women will be returning for another round. Yes, that means we'll all be getting our fill of Jacq, Teresa, Melissa Gorga, Caroline Manzo, and Kathy Wakile. Not only will all of the ladies be back for more, we'll be treated to some additional familiar faces as well as some newcomers. Count on some Kims, that's for sure!
Casting speculation over Real Housewives of New Jersey has been rampant lately. Who's in, who's out, who's new, who's possibly returning after being dead for seasons soap opera style. Several sources have promised all the originals will be coming back, but that some new "friends" of Teresa Giudice are joining the cast!
The newest name to be tossed into the ring is Jennifer Dalton. Jennifer is a real estate agent at Sotheby's and is married to a prominent (and uber wealthy) New Jersey real estate developer and is reportedly a friend of both Teresa and Dina Manzo. She attended Teresa's Fabellini launch last season.
Jennifer has already been vetted by Bravo and appeared on Pregnant in Heels last season. And just who attended her baby shower which was filmed for the show? None other than Teresa andKim D!
