Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga celebrated her 33rd birthday this week with the help of her costars!

Melissa, who is pictured above with costar Jacqueline Laurita during her birthday dinner, was also joined by Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile! Melissa rang in her big day on March 21 with a dinner at the Delmonico’s Steak House in New York City.

Also in attendance, were Melissa’s hubby Joe Gorga, Albert Manzo, and Melissa sisters who are all pictured below! Melissa had a fabulous birthday cake, which was done by Cake Boss’ Carlo`s Bakery. All the PHOTOS are below!

The only RHONJ star not in attendance, was of course Melissa’s sister-in-law/nemesis Teresa Giudice! And judging from the recently released preview of the RHONJ season 4, it’s easy to see why Tre’s invite may have gotten lost in the mail.

In fact, Jacqueline took to her Twitter page yesterday to voice her true feelings about Tre. After a fan asked Jacqueline what does Teresa have to be jealous of, Jacqueline responded: “IMO [In my opinion] its the relationship & attention her bro gives Mel her need 2b the best.” Wow! Very honest of Jacqueline there.

Jacqueline later added the following tweets -

“Season 4 gets pretty ugly but you all will enjoy watching I’m sure. I am in a completely different place now.SO Happy&Focused”

“I dont recruit an Army of soldier friends 2b on “Team me” all the time.I appreciate constructive criticism.Just dont b rude.Help me2c light”

And finally, our RHONJ insider is also telling us that Teresa, who seems to have alienated all of her costars, continues to have issues keeping friends. Well with the exception of her new BFF, who also happens to be her employee, aka her make up artist, Priscilla DiStasio!

“Teresa seems to have new BFF’s left and right now. The latest is her makeup artist. She has not one long term friend in her life. She uses people and then she is done with them!” says our insider. “All her other friends are long gone. They, like Jacqueline, see her for who she really is.” Yikes!

The new season of the RHONJ is set to premiere April 22 on Bravo.

On Monday night, the Real Housewives of New Jersey, minus Teresa Giudice, gathered together at the Brownstone to celebrate the show’s season premiere!

Housewives Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile were all in attendance along with their families. As for Teresa, she held a separate premiere/‘Fabulicious’ book launch party for herself at the Tribecca Night Club in Fort Lee, NJ. And yes that is Simon van Kempen pictured with the ladies as he and his wife Alex also attended the party.

The Montville Patch was on hand to cover the event, both snapping the housewives and interviewing them. The general consensus amongst the housewives was that watching the premiere episode, with the now infamous brawl, was an emotional experience. Melissa stated that if you didn’t cry by the end of the episode you “had a heart of stone.”

Caroline admitted that the episode was hard to watch but added you have to “take the ride with us.” Ticket prices for the premiere party were between $75 and $200 with the Patch reporting that “proceeds from the premiere party benefited several charities, including the Wounded Warrior Project, To Write Love on Her Arms and Stop Child Trafficking Now.” More photos from the event below!

Meanwhile it seems we the viewers do love us some trashtastic television! Why? Well because the Monday night premiere broke all kinds of records for the Bravo network. With over 2.87 million total viewers tuning in, the NJ Housewives delivered the highest rated season premiere in the network’s history! The episode also helped Bravo earn its best Monday night ever.

*Also wanted to note that we will no longer be doing the weekly reality stars photo posts. We will start doing more photo posts through out the week, instead of posting it all on Saturdays. Thanks!
