Velocity 1 Media hosted the Real Housewives of New Jerseypremiere party at the Pure Restaurant and Lounge in New Jersey. Proceeds from the tickets go to Project Ladybug, Dina‘s charity, and the Deborah Hospital Foundation.
According to a local news source, Dina was the only star who went out of her way to mingle with the guests. She regularly came out of the VIP room, where the RHONJ stars were stowed away, to meet and pose for pictures with fans. Melissa and Amber mingled with guests at the end of the event only. Juicy made a brief appearance by the ropes guarding the VIP room, looking like a bouncer, I’m sure. Teresa hid in the back of the VIP room all night.
UPDATE: Several party attendees reached to tell us that the local news report was not accurate. Many have shared that Teresa did not hide from the guests and that all the ladies mingled.
Teresa Giudice is the master of putting on a happy face, despite the drama surrounding her. She’s always pretending everything is fine! But finally, unfortunately, the facade is being forced to crack as she and husband Joe Giudice deal with the upcoming federal sentencing related to a 41 count fraud indictment and the sudden loss of Joe’s father.
In addition, with Real Housewives of New Jersey airing, Teresa’s problems are about to be thrust in our faces to dissect. And of course, since nothing with RHONJ is as it seems, the recent so-called reunited Teresa and Melissa Gorga are already falling apart.
Reality Tea received an exclusive scoop from an inside source about what’s going on behind the scenes at RHONJ ‘Headquarters’.
Are yous ready for this? Real Housewives of New Jersey is ba-ack this Sunday. Before we dive into the new New Jersey, let’s rehash last season so we’re all prepared. Undoubtedly the theme for season five was Love & Fight. The cast made amends and broke up every other episode!
We were promised a season of family reunification but it was really more of the same old family crucification. The cast took their battling, bickering, and brawling all across the USA since Juicy was banned from international travel via his bail agreement #FlightRisk, where they attempted to mend fences with therapists, magic pony rides, and “truthing” exercises. And it all came crashing down again when they took a little venture to The Land of Posche.
In the end, we ended up right back where we started, but at least Bravo fired some people and a new cast might bring new dramas. Here’s hoping! Oh – and Teresa Giudice got indicted, so that’s also something new.
Lucky gal Teresa gets more time to spend with her doting husband Joe, but also more time to fret and worry over the possibility of winding up in prison! And that makes Teresa sad, because she doesn’t think they let you bring your shiny, sequined bikini collection to the slammer… She’s watched OITNB – she knows!
As the Real Housewives of New Jersey star faces the very real possibility that she could be headed for prison, Teresa admits she’s petrified and not coping well. “No one can ever prepare themselves to go to prison,” she acknowledges. “More importantly, how could I ever prepare myself to be away from my kids? It’s too terrifying for me to even think about.”
Teresa Guidice took to Twitter and Instagram to pay tribute to her late father-in-law this weekend. As we previously reported, Joe Giudice's father passed away suddenly on June 18, while at Teresa and Joe's home.
The troubled reality star's crisis manager, Wendy Feldman, told US Weekly that "Joe and his dad were chasing the dog Simba and suddenly Franco fell ill." She also noted that they are focusing on "their family right now, especially the girls."
Well, it looks like Apollo Nida is the only RH star that will be sentenced for fraud charges on July 8th! The U.S. Attorney's office confirmed today that sentencing for The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars Joe and Teresa Giudice has been pushed back to September 23rd, 2014.
The move has nothing to do with yesterday's death of Joe's dad Frank. The U.S. attorney's office confirms that the schedule change is due to an administrative issue and Rebekah Carmichael of the U.S. Attorney's Office shared, "It was not moved because of any other factor."
Joe Giudice's dad, Frank Giudice, died this afternoon at the age of 63, reportedly of a heart attack.
Reports are coming in which claim that Frank was building a chicken coop in the backyard and collapsed, and passed away on the scene. No other details are available at this time.
Our thoughts are with Teresa and the Giudice family. This has been a rough year for the family. Granted, they brought the legal drama upon themselves, but those poor girls are facing losing their parents for a few (or more) years and now they've lost a beloved grandfather, too.
As the Giudices are less than a month away from their sentencing hearings both are embracing denial in a different way. For Joe Giudice he is using his precious time to party and possibly cheat!
It's all but certain that Joe will serve jail time related to their 2013 fraud indictment and instead of staying home to cherish the moments, he's out on the town and "ignoring" his family. And Teresa Giudice is not happy! You know what they say: psychotic wife, unhappy life!
“Teresa feels like Joe should be spending every minute that he can with her and their four girls, but he’s still doing his own thing, doing stuff with the guys and she’s getting really frustrated,” a source confided to Radar Online. "She doesn’t understand why he can’t just stay home with their girls and with her. She wants to know why he’s ignoring them." Well, would you want to spend time with Teresa?
