Ever since Jacqueline Laurita shared her family’s financial difficulties during the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, I can’t help feeling like she’s determined to stay on this show. Don’t get me wrong, I would feel the same way, but I feel like she’s just such a shit stirrer, especially when it comes to Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s family drama. She seems like more of an instigator than a peacemaker since she has no qualms interfering and criticizing Teresa and Melissa for how they handle familial issues.
Now, Jacqueline has taken it upon herself to be the crusader for Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. I know she is legitimately friends with them and cares about their well-being, but I feel like she is always riling them up to talk shit about Teresa and adding fuel to the fire. Sure, a big part of being on reality TV is talking about your feelings to create story line, but Kathy and Rosie are not even Housewives, so it’s a little much for me.
Melissa Gorga has been struggling all season to find a way to keep her family and her business endeavors in balance. She shares in her latest blog that they’re still in a work in progress.
She starts off, “Watching these last two episodes you really get to see the struggle Joe and I have been going through balancing both work and family life. Our babies are now all in school and are growing up so fast.”
Also throwing a party last night was Us Magazine. Showing up for that event was Bethenny Frankel and her sidekick Carole Radziwill, as well as Padma Lakshmi and others. Check out all of the photos below!
A few months ago, I would have never imagined that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga would peacefully come together for a family gathering. Times have really changed though!
Both the Gorgas and the Giudices celebrated the birthday of Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father, Giacinto Gorga, and Gino Gorga in one big happy family celebration. All of the adorable Giudice girls – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana – were present, hamming it up for the cameras, and the Gorga kids – Antonia, Gino, and Joey – were as cute and demure and darling as always.
Melissa shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “My baby girl is growing up! Such a fun party for her yesterday! Making memories! How amazing is this flower wall from @oncewedwalls.” More pictures of adorable Antonia and her birthday party are below!
