Well this took longer than I expected! After all, we’re already two episodes into the latest season of Real Housewives of New Jersey and this is the first time we’re hearing from Kim DePaola. Seriously? I expect more from you, Kim!
The infamous Garden State clinger and purveyor of the finest skin tight faux fur fashions has always been full of opinions, and there is certainly no love lost between her and Melissa Gorga. In fact, if possible, Kim despises Melissa even more this season, and she’s not going to keep quiet about it.
Obviously, Marie was the one who spread the story about LeeAnne Locken, and that is the only reason she is getting any screen time on this show. She is not even a Real Housewife and her desperation is just way too much for me to handle. I am definitely not a LeeAnne fan and even I can tell that Marie is an attention-seeking shit stirrer.
Needless to say, I was pretty shocked to watch the RHOD reunion episode and hear that Marie supposedly hired a social media team to take down LeeAnne and Tiffany Hendra. It’s absurd, to me, that she would invest so much thought and money into maintaining some sort of persona.
I’m not gonna lie, I have been taking offense with pretty much everything LeeAnne Locken does on Real Housewives of Dallas as if I am a part of their friend group. I have always felt like she is at the center of every single controversy. However, LeeAnne‘s frienemy Marie Reyes has a different view of events that have gone down during the show’s first season.
Marie thinks that Tiffany Hendra is the secret shit stirrer on this show and that she riles up LeeAnne and takes the credit for calming LeeAnne down so she can look like a good friend. It sounds a little bit crazy, but she does seem to make some valid points. Plus it would explain why Tiffany insists on being friends with LeeAnne – something I could never wrap my head around. Or maybe Marie is just jealous that these two are full-time cast members and she only gets air time when she stirs up shit with LeeAnne?
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their lives with us. And we would not have it any other way. Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite snapshots and selfies from this week. Enjoy.
It turns out when Kim told Poison Gorga she runs with the big the boys, she wasn’t lying – her man is New Jersey’s infamous “King of Con” Thomas Giacomaro! Thomas just got out of prison after serving time for bilking investors out of $73 million dollars! And now he’s ready for the next phase: working on a book, movie deal and television show about his legendary life. “Hundreds of millions of dollars went through my hands,” Thomas bragged. “It makes ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ look like he stole a pocketbook.”
Of her take on Melissa's experience at her launch party, Teresa writes, "I was sorry that Melissa got into a fight with one of her best friends at the launch party. For the record, I didn't invite Jan or Penny. The party was open to any salon owners who called in and spoke with the Youthful 8 company reps. As soon as I found out Jan had RSVPed, I called Melissa to warn her and make sure she would be OK with it. If Melissa didn't want them to come, believe me, I would have uninvited them immediately!" I believe that, don't you?
Teresa continues, "I don't really know Jan, I just know she was one of Melissa's best girlfriends, and they were in each other's wedding. I have no idea why Jan and Melissa would have a falling out, but like I said in my interview on the show, I have Melissa's back…When Jan and Melissa were talking, I was right there to make sure it didn't get out of hand. My brother was right there too, and he wasn't upset, shrugging it off as crazy talk, so I did too. My main concern was that Melissa knew I was there for her." Really? I don't believe Melissa as far as I could throw her, but it appeared to me that Teresa didn't want to leave because she didn't want anyone to say something she wasn't expecting…
Kim D. thinks the allegations against Teresa are crazy and far fetched. Kim tells her other BFF, Tom Murro, "I don’t think she’s capable of doing the things she's been charged with. I think there’s been a witch-hunt going on for a long time for her. In this country we are innocent till proven guilty !!! I love my friend and will stand by her!!"
I don't think I'd necessarily call it a witch hunt since the feds have been investigating Tre and Joe since 2001 – long before reality TV came knocking. It's pretty clear that Kim D. and Kim G. aren't seeing eye-to-eye on this one.
