Kathy Wakile

Welcome to the third season of Real Housewives of New Jersey! This season – whew – it looks like we’re in for a wild one! While the Real Housewives of New York may have needed to be ‘re-edited’ for more drama – New Jersey probably needed to be re-edited for less!

Teresa Giudice is ba-ack: angrier, crazier, bronzer, bossier, and apparently less broke because “mama is bringin’ home the bacon!” Caroline Manzo is worried about her adult children leaving the nest (wasn’t that the same issue she had last season?), Jacqueline Laurita is still dealing with good old Ashley, and we are introduced to Teresa’s maybe crazier relatives new housewives Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile.

The 90 minute premiere episode was chock full of crazy as it opens with a Christening party for new housewife Melissa’s son, Giuseppe. It has all the attributes of a classic NJ Housewife Christening party: giant ice sculptures, an open bar, smarmy guidos with open shirts and gold chains, an oil painting of the baby, a lavish sit-down dinner, a knock down, drag out fight… Oh! Wait a second – maybe most Christenings don’t involve full-on fistfights. Well, Melissa had to one-up Teresa’s party from last year! See, Melissa is Teresa’s sister-in-law and is married to Teresa’s brother who is also named Joe, but is not Juicy. Teresa and Melissa are “not exactly best friends,” in fact they are pretty much enemies. As it was well documented that Teresa threatened to quit the show if Melissa was included, but then she realized mama needs that paycheck!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 3

We’ve heard about all the drama and fights for months now, and finally we get to see it with our own eyes tonight as the 3rd season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres on Bravo at 9/8c!

On the super-sized 1 hour 30 minutes premiere, Bravo gets right into the thick of things with the widely reported brawl that took place during the christening of Teresa Giudice’s nephew.

When looking back at that very ugly incident, both Teresa and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga have different takes on it. “I was screaming at the cameras to get out of my son’s christening,” says Melissa to the NY Post “I didn’t sleep for three days. I was devastated.”

On the premiere episode, Melissa says of Teresa, “That bitch will never miss a party, especially if someone else is paying for it.”

Melissa, who was able to watch the premiere episode with her husband Joe Gorga in advance reveals, “My husband and I were both gasping for air.” She told Joe, “Now the whole world is going to think you’re crazy as she is. He said, ‘Unbelievable. I can’t believe I have to go work tomorrow.’”

As for Teresa, she told Ryan Seacrest last week on his radio show that she “blacked out” during the drama. “It has to do with my family and it’s sad and it breaks my heart.” Teresa recounts, “I blacked out…what happened on the show, I could’ve never imaged it in a million years…me and my brother, we were like best friends, up until he got married.”

Teresa adds, “[Joe Gorga] started it…it was something that came from left field.”

Meanwhile other newbie Kathy Wakile has sort of taken a backseat thanks to the Teresa/Melissa feud. Below are brief bios of both Kathy and Melissa-

Kathy – A first cousin of Teresa, Kathy resides in Wayne, New Jersey with her husband of more than 19 years, Rich, and their two children, Victoria, 17, and Joseph, 15. Kathy works hard to keep her family’s world in order and carefully monitors her children’s social lives. However she loves to party and have a good time. Kathy and her family definitely live life to the fullest.

Melissa – Melissa is a sassy Italian who is known for her witty, fun, and loving personality. After graduating from New Jersey City University with a B.A. degree in education and psychology, she is now a stay at home mom whose life is all about her family. Melissa and Joe have been married for almost seven years and met while both were away on spring break in Cancun. They live in an ornate mansion that her husband, a successful real estate developer, built and Melissa decorated. Melissa and Joe have three beautiful children, Antonia, five, Gino, three, and Joey 11 months.

A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below. In the Season 3 opener titled “In The Name of The Father,” Kathy and Melissa gear up for a family christening while Jacqueline’s lunch with her daughter leaves a sour taste. Meanwhile, Caroline’s surprise gathering with her sons turns emotional; and Teresa serves up a cookbook in a bid to bring financial stability to her family.

Surprise, surprise Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice isn’t getting along with fellow castmates – especially the ones she’s related to!

According to Life & Style, the always sweet and easy to get along with Mrs. Giudice has taken a turn for the worse and is terrorizing fellow NJ Housewives with her demanding, diva behavior. In fact, the theme for this season might as well be: Teresa Gone Wild!

She is even going so far to talk smack about former BFF Caroline Manzo by “criticizing her cooking and the fact that she does her grown sons’ laundry,” in the forward for her new cookbook Fabulicious!. The article also warns fans should expect further jabs from Teresa during her upcoming book tour: “Teresa plans to take the feud further, attacking Caroline while she’s not there to defend herself.” Uh-oh! I can’t wait to see Caroline call Teresa a “clown” next!

An insider reports that Caroline and Jacqueline Laurita are beyond annoyed with Ms. Diva New Jersey: “they don’t know how much more they can take. This isn’t the woman Teresa used to be.” Imagine, reality TV fame changing someone… So, what’s the reason for Teresa’s increasingly demanding behavior?

Since Teresa’s husband Jr. Mafia Joe is having all sorts of money trouble, including filing for bankruptcy to the tune of $11 million and being arrested for multiple driving infractions, it is now Teresa who is “bringing home the bacon” and acting as the main breadwinner for the family of six (and hopefully no more on the way!) with her two cookbook. Teresa’s harder than usual to handle behavior is the result of needing Bravo’s paycheck more than ever so she decided to replace the ousted Danielle Staub as the show’s villainess and wants to become “the most valuable star on Housewives.” A source reveals to Life & Style: “She says Jacqueline’s boring and Caroline’s old. She thinks they can’t do the show without her.” Well – she may have a point – who else is crazy enough to flip a table during dinner?

Unfortunately, Teresa’s not just having issues with money, her husband, and her friends; she is also having problems with her new castmates – who she happens to be related to! Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (who is married to Teresa’s brother Joe) and her cousin Kathy Wakile, are the newest Jersey Housewives, and it has been well documented that Teresa did not want her sister-in-law on the show. In fact, she even threatened to quit if she was brought on, but then Teresa remembered she needs the money, so nevermind that!

Teresa, herself, tells E! Online a different story, claiming Melissa and Kathy never even told her about their participation in the show: “I didn’t find out until I had heard from Bravo,” she said. “I got the phone call from Bravo and I was like blown away. I was like, ‘Really?’ And then that’s what made me a little upset because I was like, ‘Wow, it would have been nice for my brother to call me or my cousin to call me. It’s just weird to me. It really is. Just blows my mind.”

The E! Online article explains Teresa and Joe were once best friends, but the relationship apparently fell part after he married Melissa. Teresa further explains she used to like her sister-in-law until she started getting more attention than Teresa: “I wanted him to get married so bad. That was his third fiancée, so we just wanted him to get married. We always said we wanted our kids to grow up together. And I really wanted her to become the sister I never had.” She even asked Melissa to be the godmother for her daughter, Gabriella.

Teresa claims the strained relationship she has with her family “breaks my heart,” and “that’s why you’re going to see a totally different side of me this season. It’s really sad. I cry a lot on the show and it’s very hard for me.” A different side of Teresa? A side that’s not volatile, argumentative, and violent? Well, it must not be too different because: “in the premiere of season three, a full-on brawl actually breaks out during Melissa and Joe’s christening party for their son after they exchange nasty words with Teresa.” Yikes!

Well the good news is we can likely expect just as much drama without Danielle Staub! Real Housewives of New Jersey premieres May 16th at 10p EST on Bravo.

Will you be watching this season? Do you think Teresa’s behavior will have taken a turn for the worse?


The Real Housewives of New Jersey managed to remain in the headlines while they filmed their third season thanks to the antics of some of the stars, which included a brawl at a christening party and a recent brawl during a vacation to the Dominican Republic.

So when Bravo finally released the season 3 trailer last week, many fans were disappointed as it seemed to be lacking the drama we were expecting. Well fret not as it seems Bravo heard the complaints. The network has released a new sneak peek giving us a look into the family drama involving Teresa Giudice, her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa Gorga, and her cousin Kathy Wakile.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SEASON 3 TRAILER AND THE TWO NEW HOUSEWIVES?

Has hell frozen over? Above is a photo of Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga looking rather chummy.

After it was reported earlier this year that Melissa had signed on to join the cast of Real Housewives of New Jersey, sources immediately informed us that the two ladies do not get along – at all. In fact, just two months ago, it was reported that Teresa and her hubby Joe Giudice started a brawl at the christening ceremony of Melissa’s son. Joe reportedly punched Teresa’s brother/Melissa’s husband Joe Gorga, leading to an all out fight between the men and some other party guests.

According to RadarOnline, the two sister-in-laws seem to have put the bad blood behind them, well at least for now. The above photo was taken at Melissa’s Christmas party which took place on Saturday night. “Teresa may have ignored some guests,” said a source. “But Melissa and Teresa got along great and had a lot of fun dancing together.”

Also in attendance at the party was Jacqueline Laurita and hubby Chris, Caroline and Al Manzo, Kim G., and the other new NJ housewife Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s first cousin.

All signs point to this party marking the end of filming for the Real Housewives of NJ’s 3rd season. Melissa also tweeted the following this morning – “Time to wrap……..” Perhaps she’s just referring to wrapping gifts. From what we have heard, the 3rd season of the NJ Housewives will be explosive! With a lot of drama that will have you saying Danielle who? Bravo has yet to officially announce the airing date.

In other NJ news, Danielle Staub continues her attempt to stay relevant in the press. The latest is an interview with RadarOnline, in which she reveals her new year’s resolution is to have her former NJ costars “stop being mean girls!”

She adds, “Collectively stop being mean girls and resolve to be nice to everyone. Period. There is a much better existence.” Danielle also claims “I tried to [make amends] when I said goodbye at the reunion, when I walked away and quit.” Umm shouldn’t she be busy filming her “spin-off show?”  More photos from the party below.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA & MELISSA? ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE 3RD SEASON OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES AS MUCH AS WE ARE?

Just a week after an all out brawl at a child’s christening ceremony, it seems there is still drama raging on for the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

And once again the drama ensued at the Posche Fashion Show, you know, the same place cops were called to last year during the weave pulling fiasco involving Danielle Staub. And though there were no cops called this go around, RadarOnline reports emotions spilled over during the fashion show.

According to Radar, the show last night was the first time feuding sister-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga (pictured above at the fashion show) came face to face following the fight that broke out at the christening of Melissa’s son. As reported, Melissa has been added as a new housewife to the Bravo hit show.

“Melissa and Teresa were on separate sides of the room,” an eyewitness told RadarOnline. “And not surprisingly, they were not speaking. It was Melissa’s side versus Teresa’s side. But you could see Teresa was intimidated. She sat in her seat. She didn’t move or talk to many people. She was not her ‘big’ self.”

The cause of the tension this time around? Competition according to sources. “It all started because Teresa was mad that Melissa was in the show for Posche and that Melissa was originally supposed to walk the runway before her,” said the eyewitness, who added that Teresa ended up walking out first.

The source added that the audience made it clear who’s side they were on. “When Teresa came out there was not much clapping or reaction. But when Melissa came out the room went nuts! A lot of the guests even stood up,” the eyewitness said. “Melissa looked beyond beautiful.”

And despite the denials from Caroline Manzo and Teresa that all is well in their relationship, RadarOnline reports once again that there is a rift between the two ladies which was  more obvious last night.

“Teresa and Caroline were talking at the table, but you could tell that they aren’t as close anymore,” an eyewitness said. It didn’t help matters when Teresa’s hairdresser Daniel, who was reportedly intoxicated began hurling profanities at Caroline and her husband Al Manzo.

Caroline reportedly reacted to the outburst by saying, “This is my home and this isn’t the time or the place,” and then kicking him out of the event, as the event took place at the Brownstone.

Radar also adds that Teresa’s cousin Kathy Wakile has been added to the cast and that Teresa was unhappy last night as she thought Kathy was too friendly with Melissa. Sources however say Kathy was just trying to play peacemaker between Teresa and Melissa.
