Real Housewives of New Jersey has some of the best "extras" in the Housewives business. C'mon… what would this show be without Kim D? Nothing and you know it!

Oh the desperate hanger-ons that will do anything for a slice of Bravo camera infamy. They're nefarious, they're brazen, they will stop at nothing to take down a Housewife! 

As we are T -1 day until the epic premiere, we count down the best extras ever to appear on this show!

Last week Teresa Giudice celebrated forty-one and fabulous! 

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star kept things relatively low-key for her birthday (is this a whole new Teresa?) and was spotted enjoying drinks with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.

Kim D also posted a photo of her, Teresa, and Melissa together from the same evening. And no – the world did not implode. Shockingly! Teresa celebrated at NYC's STK restaurant.

Kim DePaola's birthday bash last night wasn't nearly as eventful as the Posche 2 party, and we're all a little thankful for that today!  Kim's Real Housewives of New Jersey BFF Teresa Giudice and her hubby Joe were in attendance and we've got some of the photos for you! 

The event was held last night at Il Tulipano in Wayne, New Jersey and featured a mini fashion show, as well as Kim D showing off her Cuffs by Kim D line and the soiree was brought to life with music by DJ Cruze. 

As far as we hear, all sinks were left in tact! 

TELL US – ARE YOU DISAPPOINTED THAT NO DRAMA WENT DOWN?

What happens in Jersey certainly doesn't stay in Jersey, especially when it involves anyone from the Real Housewives of New Jersey!  The big news of late with these people is a recent brawl at a Posche event.  Has Kim D. considered getting corporate sponsors for these fights?  She may as well get some extra money for this insanity, right?

After the bloody incident where Johnny Karagiorgis was slapped in the back of the head by a shoeless Jacqueline Laurita while being jumped by her husband Chris, nephew Albie Manzo, and Poison Gorga, Johnny has now pressed charges…although Albie someone escaped being named.  The fight allegedly started after the RHONJ crowd heard that Johnny was making fun of the Laurita's autistic son Nicholas, an accusation that Johnny denies.

Following the massive brawl that took place during the opening of Kim DePaola's salon and boutique, Posche 2, the police are investigating and possible criminal assault charges could be filed. 

According to sources while filming for Real Housewives of New Jersey some mayhem went down. Joe Gorga and Chris Laurita (aided by Albie Manzo and Jacqueline 'Bad Girls Club" Laurita) got into a physical altercation with Kim D friend and strippergate instigator, Johnny Karagiorgis. 

Johnny reportedly made fun of Jacqueline's autistic son Nicholas (a charge he vehemently denies on twitter) which led to the incident. Witnesses tell the NJ Patch that the fight was very nasty

"It was a huge brawl. Three of Kim D's clothes racks were destroyed and three of our custom sinks were broken," salon owner Jennifer Dunn confirms. "There was blood on the walls." Jennifer also reveals that one of the men threw a sink during the incident. Undaunted Bravo cameras continued rolling the entire time!

Oh Kim D, love her or hate her or secretly relish in her antics as I do, it appears we are stuck with her! Kim is apparently returning to Real Housewives of New Jersey as a full-fledged housewife this season, earning her stripes with last season's stripper-gate set-up. 

In a new interview Kim D is direct, to the point, and makes no secret that she is all about the fame and playing the game! She also has some surprising things to say!

Kim reveals that the show pretty much saved her business which was failing, pre-Housewives. Oh, you don't say? She is now opening a second boutique for all your NJ tackery needs!

Since The Real Housewives of New Jersey news is so often heavy and dramatic, we're happy to bring you a lighthearted post for once! 

Joe and Melissa Gorga took their family to see the circus this weekend and it made an impression on Melis.  She joked on Twitter, "I'm quitting reality and joining the circus;.) @bravoandy pls note;.)." 

It wouldn't be much of a career change – RHONJ is definitely a three-ring circus most days: sequin covered costumes, death-defying acts (often featuring your family members), clowns, traveling with wild animals and more!

For reasons I will never understand, everyone and their mother want to climb aboard the crazy train that is Real Housewives of New Jersey.  When I say everyone, I mean anyone who has come into contact with any of the cast members in the last two decades.  They all want to spill the beans and "take down" any number of the show's stars, most hoping for their own 15 minutes of Bravo notoriety.  Former babysitters, ex boyfriends, grocery store clerks, hair stylists, first grade recess buddies, you name it! 

Last week it was Melissa Gorga's ex beau from a million moons ago, threatening to expose her (ON screen, of course!) and this week it's a former friend.  We had sources crawling out of the woodwork this week – with several different versions of the same story, as seems to always be the case where our leading ladies, Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, are concerned, right?
