It’s not shocking to learn that Real Housewives of New Jersey’sJacqueline Laurita and the housewife everyone loves to hate Teresa Giudice are still not on speaking terms after a rocky season. It’s also not shocking to learn that “reality” hangers on are lining up to give their two cents about the former two besties’ current relationship.
To whom am I referring? Kim Granatell…or Kim G. for serious fans. She’s been missing from the season for the most part, so of course she’s going to resurface in tabloid land. Don’t tell me you’re surprised!
Oh reality television stars… you never cease to amaze me. One of the greatest things about reality TV is scathing, over the top, out of control ridiculous cat fights, arguments, and behind the back insults. It’s what differentiates reality from reality TV. See, I would never call someone a “dumb drag queen” … but in the wilds of reality TV, anything goes!
Reality Tea has compiled a list of some of our favorite reality TV insults. Below is some delightful footage of our hardworking stars doing what they do best – acting nutty and getting paid to do so! Let the memories come flooding back.
A day after we reported on the drama that took place during the annual Posche Fashion Show on Tuesday night, we now have more details on what really went down thanks to an insider who was not only at the event, but is actually close with the cast members.
According to the insider, Monica Chacon was NOT at the event, and neither was Kim G. though the producers of the show wanted her there and even invited her. Kim G. however sensed the set up and declined the invite which in itself is quite shocking.
The insider reveals the drama all had to do with Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice. Apparently, Kim D. akaKim DePaola, who is the owner of the Posche Boutique, was attempting to expose Melissa's alleged past as a stripper during the fashion show. Even worse, Teresa was apparently in cahoots with Kim D. though she tried to play innocent in usual Teresa fashion.
"Teresa was involved in a rumor that started which stated Melissa was a stripper," the insider tells Reality Tea adding that "Melissa was never a stripper."
The insider continues, "Of course, once Teresa got caught, she [started] playing the blame game. Teresa and Kim D were part of this "set up" which is why Joe Gorga came at the end of the fashion show."
The above is the reason Joe Gorgawas extremely upset yesterday and tweeting up a storm about his sister. Joe tweeted Wednesday morning – “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT”. Upon arriving at the fashion show, Joe had it out with Kim D and had to be calmed down by Caroline.
The source reveals that Jacqueline Lauritaand Caroline Manzo are no longer on speaking terms with Teresa and that they only sat at the same table with her because Bravo made the cast sit together.
The insider also confirms Jacqueline did NOT attend yesterday's reunion as promised. Wowzers. In fact, PEOPLE magazine is reporting today that Jacqueline has officially quit the show after tweeting yesterday about her displeasure with the turn the show has taken. "Jacqueline [Laurita] definitely quit," a source tells PEOPLE. "She had to walk away for her sanity."
As for the stripper accusation, Melissa denied this on twitter. She wrote: "Fact: I was never a stripper… But have nothing against them."
Teresa, who passive aggressively encouraged Danielle Staub to leak out any information she had about Melissa weeks ago, also passive aggressively defended Melissa. Teresa tweeted – "And for the record: I don’t believe MG was a stripper but I wouldn’t care anyway. (I have lots of ex-stripper friends… ahem…)"
Our source however insists Teresa was in cahoots with new BFF Kim D. (she has alienated all of her costars) to expose Melissa's alleged stripper past, stating that Teresa and Kim D. even arrived at the fashion show together in an Escalade limo. The two had been filming all day together — at a spa and getting ready for the event.
And right after Teresa wrote her tweets yesterday including this particular one – "I don’t even wanna go there b/c I don't fight on twitter not w/ fans, not haters, not w/ mean RTs & def not w/ a friend (ahem) or my family!", Jacqueline responded making it 100% clear her tweets from yesterday about somebody being set up were indeed about Teresa setting up Melissa. Jacqueline wrote -
"I love the blame shifting when someone is caught in lies. Unbelievable… There is no real love there. Things aren't always what they seem. SOME people live a different life OFF camera then they do on. ( ahem)… You'll all see through the bullshit if you look closely enough. I think you all are pretty smart."
You gotta love the use of "ahem" aka the same word used by Teresa minutes before Jacqueline's tweets. Can you say so much drama?
And finally, RadarOnline is reporting today that Joe Giudice, Teresa's husband, was caught having a friendly dinner with another woman on Tuesday night – the same night the Posche drama was going down. In fact the site obtained a photo (posted below) of Joe with the other woman, who is described as being "in her late 20s or early 30s.”
And eyewitness tells Radar: “They were drinking martinis and when the woman finished hers she took a sip out of Joe’s glass too. They looked like they were having a good time together and laughing with each other." The source adds that after a waiter brought the two wet naps the woman opened hers and “wiped Joe’s hands off with hers."
"It was really intimate to see her touching his hands like that," states the eyewitness adding that Joe and the other woman "looked very comfortable and cozy together." Ai ya ya. That photo of Joe with the mystery lady is below. Unfortunately for Tre, this isn't the first time Joe has been spotted out with another woman.

Jacqueline made some not so cryptic tweets last night which made it clear she is over the Bravo hit series. In fact, Jacqueline stated she is ready to move on from the show.
First Jacqueline revealed she will be skipping the season 3 reunion, which is taping today. “I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!” wrote Jacqueline. Yikes! A reunion show without a current housewife has yet to happen in the history of Bravo. Not sure the network will be too happy with one of the main characters missing out on a reunion show.
What is clear is that Jacqueline was well enough last night to attend the annual Posche Fashion Show. So it appears her reasons for wanting to skip the reunion today has less to do with her health. In fact, her next series of tweets seem to prove that.
Jacqueline added, “Someone( not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”
She continued, “2b honest.I’m tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn’t know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.” No word yet on whom she’s referring to.
But what is clear is that some major drama went down at the Posche fashion show last night and it involved Teresa Giuidice! Of course. According to the tweets of those in attendance, there was a fight that went down in the bathroom during the fashion show. The rumor is that the fight was between Teresa and her new nemesis Monica Chacon. If you recall, Monica was Kim G’s guest to Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party this season, which of course led to nothing but drama.
Based on some of the tweets, it seems producers of the show might have purposely invited Monica in other to set off some drama. This would make sense in regards to Jacqueline’s tweets about a “set up.”
Soap actress, Martha Byrne, who was at the show, was live tweeting through the event. She tweeted last night: “Fight in the bathroom,” adding minutes later – “Teresa in bathroom with ….” Martha, who also stated some of the fashion show drama was scripted, tweeted some photos from the event. Those are below!
It also appears Joe Gorga was somehow involved in the whole fiasco as he has been making tweets about Teresa all day. First Joe tweeted — “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT” Joe then went on to retweet the following messages from fans: -
“I think Teresa must have set Melissa and/or Joe up to look bad (ie @JacLaurita tweets and now @joegorga tweets).”
“Me too theresa changed all bout her & $$$ nothing else shame.”
Danielle Staub, who claimed producers of the show had been contacting her to film, has also been mum on twitter since yesterday. Leaving some to wonder if she is involved in this fiasco is any shape or form.
In the meantime, below is a screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets -
For the most part, the NJ housewives have been mum on twitter today as the reunion is filming. Though Jacqueline did manage to tweet this message just hours ago – “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
Could a Real Housewives of Orange County star be gearing up for a mid season exit? Perhaps. According to RadarOnline, Fernanda Rocha has now joined the Bravo housewives series!
This news comes as a surprise because the 6th season of the Bravo hit show has been filming for weeks now and the addition of another new housewife Peggy Tanous, was announced close to 2 months ago. This is a likely indicator that Fernanda will be replacing a veteran housewife midway through the season.
As for Fernanda, RadarOnline describes her as a drop dead gorgeous personal trainer with a killer body, who is bisexual and open about it.
“She’s going to be a more controversial character because she’s been married and she’s just got out of a lesbian relationship,” a source said.
Fernanda, who is a good friend of Tamra Barney’s and recently posed in some topless NO8H photos with her, is a co-owner of the fitness club, Art of Fitness & SPA in Laguna Beach, CA. She appeared on the show last season teaching her fitness class to some of the housewives.
A show insider tells RadarOnline that “they’re probably going to use her as more of a villain-type character that will stir the pot like Kim G. But she’s younger, sexier and more controversial.” More photos of Fernanda below -
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON OC’S LATEST ADDITION?
The 48-year-old reality star who was fired by Bravo, despite her claims that she left the show on her own accord, is giving out interviews to every media outlet that is willing to listen to her. In the process, she is making certain to bash her fellow housewives, while spilling some of their secrets. In fact, the only housewife not to bear the brunt of Danielle is Jacqueline Laurita, who famously made up with her during the reunion show.
In an interview with Steppin’ Out magazine via RadarOnline, Danielle goes as far as to refer to Teresa Giudiceas an “ape” while stating that Teresa’s husband Joe Giudice “loves his strippers.” Excerpts are below -
Danielle on Teresa’s Looks –
“She needs a hairline revision. Planet of the Apes has nothing on her!.. She reminds me of Cornelius from Planet of the Apes. Could you imagine if her face is that hairy what her body hair must be like? It’s got to be out of control.”
Danielle on Teresa and hubby Joe affair rumors –
“I would not doubt that for a second. I hear that all the time. I was hearing those rumors before we even taped the show. Joe loves his strippers. Maybe that’s another reason Teresa hates me. She forgets I used to be a stripper. I’m not a stripper anymore. Don’t hate us all… If she was making Joe happy maybe he wouldn’t have to go some place else. I don’t know what goes on in their bedroom, but from what I’ve seen, Teresa is not exactly a turn on. Her forehead is disturbing. But it’s not even about her looks.”
Danielle wasn’t done yet as she also gave an interview to OUT magazine, during which she trashed Caroline and Dina Manzo. In the interview, Danielle claims she is friends with Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law, Joe and Melissa Gorga, while stating that Teresa treats them very poorly and that she is jealous of their wealth. Excerpts below -
Why did what you said about her nephew make Teresa so mad in the first place?
Teresa never greeted her nephew. I have proof of that in email. She never said congratulations to her brother when her nephew was born. Her brother has been directly contacting me for the past year and a half, letting me know how he feels about his sister. And how he and his wife — pregnant wife — were thrown from her house because they brought my favorite cookies to Christmas Eve… Teresa threw a hissy fit. And not once do you see her with her brother and her sister-in-law and their beautiful children. Not once! But she glorifies everybody else. Why couldn’t she show her real family? Why? Just tell me why? Because they have more than her maybe? Because she’s jealous of them maybe? Or maybe they would have told the truth and said Teresa goes off like that all the time. “It’s not just Danielle. Teresa’s certifiably crazy.” I think they’re going to have their chance now to speak the truth. Go for it, I’m all behind you.
Did you try to get Dina’s kids taken away from her?
No, I don’t even know her daughter’s last name. I do know that Dina did a whole article devoted to trying to make the world believe that I did that, but Dina’s not doing the show because she forged a legal document with her ex-husband’s name on it, giving her daughter permission to do season 1. And when her ex-husband found out about it, he forbade her to do season 2, leaving Dina with nobody in her immediate family — her daughter or her husband, who never taped with her once — to do anything with her. So she left the show because she was too embarrassed to say that she forged a legal document. I had to have my ex-husband sign for my children. She didn’t do that. But again, Dina lies, and everybody swears by it. Dina is more fake than the whole lot of them. It’s just that she’s the baby of the family, so Caroline’s going to keep backing her up. I am truly the only gay advocate. And I’ll tell you one thing, none of them can prove to me they’ve walked one foot in any Pride. Where I have walked, continuously over the years, a total this past year of eleven miles. In stilettos. To support and lift up, and be there, and hug and embrace my gay community. And I will continue to do that. I speak for equality, and I always have.
This comes as no surprise as Danielle has always shown just how vindictive she is. In other news, TMZ posted some bikini photos of the elderly Kim G. this morning, and yes you read that right, bikini photos. No word on how TMZ got the photos or why exactly, but so umm yeah, the photos are below.
So what can we expect? Well, Kim G. makes her return as she comes back for a special appearance to call Danielle out on using her and being a bad friend.
Other serious allegations are brought up in the reunion, which include the story behind Danielle and Ashley’s texting war. Last week Teresa unleashed her anger on Danielle and this week the rest of the ladies are ready to join in. Will Danielle make it through the reunion shoot or will she flee the scene again? Find out tonight at 9/8c.
In other news, last week’s reunion episode brought in a Bravo housewives best at 3.9 million viewers, making it the most watched housewives episode in the history of the Bravo network.
Back to tonight’s episode,Andy Cohen did a new interview with E! online during which he assured us the part 2 of the reunion would shock us even more than the first (Is this even possible?).
“What I’ll tell you is that Jacqueline has something of an epiphany somewhere through the taping and her epiphany is really going to surprise people,” said Andy to E!. “Two things happen that I never would expect to happen in million years. Literally, the shots of me, my mouth is on the floor.”
Interesting words from Andy. Could Jacqueline be the housewife that will reportedly leave the show forever? Guess we’ll find out tonight!
A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.
