In January 2015 one of Joe’s tenants slipped and fell on ice, fracturing his arm, at a “rental property that [Joe] owned under a business name,” explains Gerard Nisivoccia, an attorney for the plaintiff.
What do they think about Siggy Flicker leaving the show? Did Teresa actually get an apologize from Joe Giudice when she visited him in prison? Why did it take so long for Teresa to visit him? What is going on with their restaurant closing less than a year after it opened.
After a short season of Siggy Flicker unravelling, Teresa Giuidice namaste-ing, and Margaret Josephs pig-tailing, it’s the end of the road for The Real Housewives Of New Jersey. Despite the left turns and dead ends going on behind the scenes (and damn, is it a MESS!), the cast boldly pretends to finish out the season on a unified path. Well, except for Siggy and Margaret. And Danielle Staub and Dolores Catania. And Kim DePaola and…everyone else. Okay – never mind! All these b*tches still hate each other. But they did wear glittery eyeshadow and weird wigs!
Margaret and Marge Sr. are checking out the custom made dress commissioned for Margaret’s 50th birthday party. She’s forever 21 in her head, but in the dress, her boobage is still 49. As she yanks and tugs at her cleavage, Danielle saunters in to join the party. They all discuss Siggy’s rude behavior at the Gorga’s restaurant opening. Marge isn’t going to uninvite Siggy to her disco bash just because she acted crazy – I mean, everyone’s used to that sh*t by now, right?!
As with everything on RHONJ there are 13 sides to the story, and the truth is obscured at the bottom of a fake Chanel bag underneath leopard print, glitter, and salami. So of course that’s also the situation surrounding the sudden closure of Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza.
According to a source although the Gorgas (and one Giudice) are no longer part of ‘Gorga’s’ the restaurant remains open, in the same location, but is being run by Joe’s now ex-partners, who are still using the name Gorga’s.
In the middle of the current Real Housewives of New Jersey season, there was a trailer for what’s to “come” during the rest of the season and that included Danielle Staub and her boyfriend Marty Caffrey having sex in the bathroom at Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga’s restaurant opening.
That scene never made it into the episode and I had no idea why. Why dangle that kind of content in front of us and then not air it?
One of the constant story lines from Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the opening of Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant. Joe supposedly bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it first. Then it became a family affair with all three of them and Joe and Teresa’s father helping out as well.
With all of the publicity around the restaurant, it would make sense for the place to be popping off – especially if Joe, Teresa, or Melissa ever announce that they’re popping in on social media. Now the restaurant is closing down with the hope of looking for a larger location.
It’s been a minute since we’ve checked in with The Real Housewives Of New Jersey on Bravo, but oh boy, have things heated up behind the scenes! Since Siggy Flicker’s announcement that she’s leaving the show, social media and news outlets have been abuzz with what went down at the reunion – and what portion of that drama we’ll actually see. (Crossing fingers that a rogue editor somehow splices in the juicy stuff at the last minute!) Until then, we must travel back in time to the ladies’ post-Milan lives, which are just as much of a mess as they were pre-Milan.
Margaret Josephs and Siggy are now in open war after Siggy’s accusation that Marge was anti-Semitic. Siggy’s half-hearted (and delayed) response to Marge’s apology did nothing to cool the flames. Melissa Gorga is back in the strip mall trying to make Envy happen, despite the wishes of Joe Gorga. He apparently needs a waitress at the new pizza joint, and his only remaining name tag says “Melissa.” Teresa Giudice is living like it’s 2009 all over again as she turns up at Danielle Staub’s home to offer a
contractually obligatory apology to her dorters. Except one of the dorters doesn’t even want to see her! She’s like, Namaste away, crazy lady! Tre has trouble counting to two anyway, so she likely thinks all Staub offspring are present for the blessed event.
I don’t blame Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for escaping the winter cold to go on vacations with their families. Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 has wrapped up filming, they already shot the reunion, they enjoyed their Christmas cookies (pignoli and sprinkle), and it’s just too cold these days. Who wouldn’t want to soak up the sun for a few days? Plus if we’re being realistic, all of those Instagram tags and hash tags are strong indications that these trips were comped (or at least partially comped).
Teresa headed down to Cancun, Mexico with her four daughters, her father, and some of her friends. Melissa, her husband Joe Gorga, and their three kids enjoyed their vacation in Jamaica.
