That was fast! We just learned a few days ago that Joe Gorga and his family were opening a restaurant and here it’s already done and ready to go! Last night Joe, Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice celebrated the grand opening of Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza in East Hanover, NJ.

LaLa Kent, Terra Jole, LeAnn Rimes, Dr. Paul Nassif, Carlton Gebbia, and other reality stars stepped out for  OK! Magazine’s Summer kick-off party at The W Hollywood.

Doing a little schmoozing for the advertisers, Kim and Khloe Kardashian showed up for the NBCUniversal upfront Summer presentations for E!

You’ll find these and more down in the gallery below!  Are you going to check out Joe’s new restaurant? What about Kathy Wakile’s?

Joe Gorga defends Teresa

I feel like there are so many reality TV stars that (attempt to) open up restaurants, but I’m pretty surprised to learn that Melissa Gorga’s husband Joe Gorga is about to be one of them. Sure, he’s all about the Italian pride, but he was also very adamant about the kitchen being a woman’s place.

Then again, starting up a restaurant would be the perfect compromise for Joe and Melissa. He can take care of the business aspects and she can oversee the menu. I have no idea if Melissa is even involved in this project, but I’m sure her husband has asked her for advice while he has been working to get the place up and running.

Melissa-Gorga-Vacation9

I can’t help having a little jealousy when it comes to the way the Real Housewives live their lives. Nevertheless, the one thing I don’t envy about being a Housewife is those group vacations. Sure, they’re (most likely) all paid for, but it just seems like way too much to handle. So I bet they love when they can go on trips with their family instead of their fellow cast members. I’m sure Melissa Gorga had a lot more fun hanging with her family than she did during the cast trip to Vermont last year.

Then again, I feel like any vacation would be more fun than that hellish trip. Melissa, Joe Gorga, and their well-behaved kids all went to Florida for Melissa’s family reunion. I’m assuming this vacation will make the show since the RHONJ ladies are all about the family time, but just in case it doesn’t- or if you just can’t wait for the next season, Melissa and Joe posted plenty of photos.

RHONJ Teresa Giudice Instagram - mom

It is with a heavy heart that I write that Teresa Giudice’s mother has passed away. Y’all know I love this job, as it’s fun to snark on the world of reality television stars, but, as with this post, we are often reminded that they aren’t just present for our entertainment and amusement. Regardless of their attitudes, their flaws, their ridiculous quirks, or their over-the-top personalities, reality stars are actually real people who experience highs, lows, loves, and losses just like the rest of us.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star encapsulates so much of what we love to hate, hate to watch, and are mesmerized by thanks to her opulent lifestyle, unabashed and unapologetic relationships with family and friends, countless legal woes, and prison terms. However, at her core, Teresa is just a woman who lost someone so incredibly near and dear to her, and I feel horribly that she has to go through it. Coming on the heels of so much other drama in her life, it must be shattering to her.

Envy-Reopening-Melissa-Gorga-Joe-Gorga-post

The future was not looking too bright for Melissa Gorga‘s store Envy after her partner Jackie Beard Robinson left. To add insult to injury, Jackie sold the Envy merchandise at Posche, the story owned by Melissa’s nemesis Kim DePaola. Melissa insisted that it wasn’t the end for her store though and she bounced back quicker than anyone ever expected. Envy is already up and running again and some Real Housewives cast members turned up for the re-opening party.

Of course, Melissa’s sister-in-law-turned-best-friend Teresa Giudice was there to lend her support. The always-neutral cast member Dolores Catania was on hand as well. Weirdly enough, all three of them had the same brown hair with blonde highlights. RHONJ friend (and shit stirrer) Robyn Levy came through as well. The more interesting story is who wasn’t pictured.

rhonj-recap-teresa-joe-christmas

There have been some infamous Christmas moments on Real Housewives of New Jersey over the years. From Teresa Giudice throwing Melissa Gorga’s sprinkle cookies in the garbage, to the the two sisters-in-law ending their feud, this holiday has always been a big deal to Teresa. The viewers know how much the queen of RHONJ lives for Christmas and I’m sure that a lot of them are curious about how she is going to celebrate the holiday while her husband Joe Giudice is in jail.

I will never forget Teresa’s emotional homecoming perfectly timed with Christmas celebrations last year, but I have to assume that this year is going to be a way less happy occasion.
