There has been a lot going on with all of your favorite (and least favorite) reality stars this week, which means that Instagram was full of new photos. Jax Taylor got support from his Vanderpump Rules costars (past and present love interests) Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, and Brittany Cartwright in Michigan at a “Celebration of Life” event to honor his father who recently passed away. Meanwhile Scheana Marie cozied up to (yet another) one of Brandi Glanville’s exes- Gerard Butler- and posed for a selfie with him, of course. She even claims that he was the one who insisted on taking the photo.
What do they think about Siggy Flicker leaving the show? Did Teresa actually get an apologize from Joe Giudice when she visited him in prison? Why did it take so long for Teresa to visit him? What is going on with their restaurant closing less than a year after it opened.
Margaret and Marge Sr. are checking out the custom made dress commissioned for Margaret’s 50th birthday party. She’s forever 21 in her head, but in the dress, her boobage is still 49. As she yanks and tugs at her cleavage, Danielle saunters in to join the party. They all discuss Siggy’s rude behavior at the Gorga’s restaurant opening. Marge isn’t going to uninvite Siggy to her disco bash just because she acted crazy – I mean, everyone’s used to that sh*t by now, right?!
As with everything on RHONJ there are 13 sides to the story, and the truth is obscured at the bottom of a fake Chanel bag underneath leopard print, glitter, and salami. So of course that’s also the situation surrounding the sudden closure of Gorga’s Homemade Pasta & Pizza.
According to a source although the Gorgas (and one Giudice) are no longer part of ‘Gorga’s’ the restaurant remains open, in the same location, but is being run by Joe’s now ex-partners, who are still using the name Gorga’s.
One of the constant story lines from Season 8 of Real Housewives of New Jersey is the opening of Joe Gorga, Teresa Giudice, and Melissa Gorga’s Italian restaurant. Joe supposedly bought the restaurant without consulting Melissa about it first. Then it became a family affair with all three of them and Joe and Teresa’s father helping out as well.
With all of the publicity around the restaurant, it would make sense for the place to be popping off – especially if Joe, Teresa, or Melissa ever announce that they’re popping in on social media. Now the restaurant is closing down with the hope of looking for a larger location.
Margaret Josephs and Siggy are now in open war after Siggy’s accusation that Marge was anti-Semitic. Siggy’s half-hearted (and delayed) response to Marge’s apology did nothing to cool the flames. Melissa Gorga is back in the strip mall trying to make Envy happen, despite the wishes of Joe Gorga. He apparently needs a waitress at the new pizza joint, and his only remaining name tag says “Melissa.” Teresa Giudice is living like it’s 2009 all over again as she turns up at Danielle Staub’s home to offer a contractually obligatory apology to her dorters. Except one of the dorters doesn’t even want to see her! She’s like, Namaste away, crazy lady! Tre has trouble counting to two anyway, so she likely thinks all Staub offspring are present for the blessed event.
I don’t blame Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga for escaping the winter cold to go on vacations with their families. Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 8 has wrapped up filming, they already shot the reunion, they enjoyed their Christmas cookies (pignoli and sprinkle), and it’s just too cold these days. Who wouldn’t want to soak up the sun for a few days? Plus if we’re being realistic, all of those Instagram tags and hash tags are strong indications that these trips were comped (or at least partially comped).
Teresa headed down to Cancun, Mexico with her four daughters, her father, and some of her friends. Melissa, her husband Joe Gorga, and their three kids enjoyed their vacation in Jamaica.
