A ton of Real Housewives of New Jersey news to report today so let’s begin with the 4th season of the hit show!
Yes, filming on the RHONJ season 4 has already began! In fact, it began weeks ago. This is pretty surprising as to my knowledge, Bravo has never filmed a new season of a Real Housewives series while the previous season was still on the air.
It is likely this is being done due to the extremely high ratings and the network doesn’t want to wait an entire year to push out a new season. There are also rumblings Bravo did this to capture Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial which was originally scheduled for mid July. As we reported, that trial has now been postponed to October 13. I am also hearing Bravo is planning to debut the new season this fall. Wowzers.
Meanwhile Perez Hilton recently reported the producers behind the show put out an ad looking for new housewives. I can however confirm all of the current five housewives have been filming so it’s likely Bravo is just looking to add an extra housewife to the mix.
In other news, after receiving backlash for the awful things her husband Joe Giudice said about Melissa Gorga on the most recent episode of the show, Teresa is now blaming editing for Joe’s actions claiming he wasn’t trashing Melissa. While the Gorgas visited the Giudices for Christmas, all seemed to be going well until Joe decided to unleash some not so nice words about Melissa who was nearby but couldn’t hear. Bravo captioned Joe’s words on screen and below is the transcript of Joe’s exact words –
- “I don’t give a sh*t about her”
- “She’s a friggin’ animal”
- “They’re f*cking animals”
- “Who the hell would want to be that friggin’ racoon face over there? She’s a witch”
In Teresa’s latest blog on Celebuzz, she claims Joe wasn’t talking about Melissa but rather one of Melissa’s sisters – Lysa Simpson – and that Bravo simply edited it to make it appear he was trashing Melissa. “At my Christmas Eve party, sitting in his own house with his own brother-in-law, Joe was talking about Lysa NOT Melissa,” wrote Teresa. But how can Joe be talking about Lysa when he used the words “over there” to describe the person he was trashing? Need more proof? Below is a screen shot from the episode.
Perhaps Melissa’s sister was lurking in the room somewhere in Teresa’s home and went undetected by everyone including Bravo’s cameras. Even more interesting are the number of negative comments on Teresa’s Celebuzz blog. As you all know, Bravo has a policy of not posting the very negative comments on the housewives’ blogs on the Bravotv website.
Also interesting is the fact that those “f*cking animals” are not the ones going on trial for bankruptcy fraud, being arrested for DUIs, or facing 10 years in prison.
And finally, the most recent episode of the RHONJ featuring the smackdown of Kim Granatell was the highest rated episode of the season! Over 2.9 million viewers tuned in to see the Manzos take down the sh*t stirring Kim G. Sunday’s episode was up 15 percent among total viewers compared to the previous week’s episode.
