It’s nice to know that no matter how many seasons of Real Housewives of New Jersey we have, some things will remain the same. Teresa Giudice will always be delusional, Melissa Gorga will always be pretending to be someone she’s not (i.e. rich), and the fashions will always be an abomination that is almost unbelievable!
While Teresa is in denial about potentially going to prison – and perhaps if you’re headed to prison the only way to get through is to be in denial – she’s planning for Christmas with her daughters. I will say, and I may regret saying this, Teresa seems much more humbled, sincere, and real this season.
All the Jersians are preparing for Christmas in their own way: Dina Manzo has to put the tree outside because her hairless cat Botox is afraid of it or something. Maybe seeing his reflection in the shiny ornaments was traumatizing. Lexi is waiting for college admissions letters, but has her heart set only on NYU. Dina encourages her to throw a rock over a bridge and let go of preconceived notions of destiny. #ZenByBravo Dina needs to stop getting her life tips from old episodes of Dr. Phil.
Our favorite reality TV stars cannot get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to social media to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from this week! Enjoy!
E! News shared the above picture of Giuliana Rancic, adding, “Surprise! G has gone blonde!”
A judge ruled that Kai Patterson can stay in the Gorga house for another 17 days if he coughs up $25,000. According to the Gorga attorney, Patterson owes them more than $180,000. So, the eviction proceedings are delayed for a few more days.
The two sides went back and forth and Gorga’s attorney made it clear that Melissa and Joe want the eviction done as quickly as possible so they can move back into the mansion! The Gorgas want to get back in the house and enroll their kids in school for the upcoming year. Hmm..guess that “Dream Home” isn’t happening anytime soon.
I’m apologizing in advance because this is another book-length tale. I am sharing the whole thing once again, for those of you who enjoy every last morsel of gossip and craziness. I’m also summarizing a bit of in bullet highlights, although that won’t do these latest revelations and accusations a bit of justice.
A few highlights - Joe Gorga allegedly owes the state of New Jersey Workers’ Compensation more than $45,000, Joe Gorga also allegedly hired a man to sit on the Montville mansion’s property to make sure that Mr. Patterson wasn’t hiring other contractors to fix the house and more! Even that “fake attorney” from the Posche 2 salon brawl legal debacle makes an appearance in this twisted tale, too!
Velocity 1 Media hosted the Real Housewives of New Jerseypremiere party at the Pure Restaurant and Lounge in New Jersey. Proceeds from the tickets go to Project Ladybug, Dina‘s charity, and the Deborah Hospital Foundation.
According to a local news source, Dina was the only star who went out of her way to mingle with the guests. She regularly came out of the VIP room, where the RHONJ stars were stowed away, to meet and pose for pictures with fans. Melissa and Amber mingled with guests at the end of the event only. Juicy made a brief appearance by the ropes guarding the VIP room, looking like a bouncer, I’m sure. Teresa hid in the back of the VIP room all night.
UPDATE: Several party attendees reached to tell us that the local news report was not accurate. Many have shared that Teresa did not hide from the guests and that all the ladies mingled.
We open with Melissa Gorgawatching the news of Teresa and Joe heading to court to plead guilty to a 41-count federal indictment for a staggering number of financial frauds. Melissa, proving she’s no more an actress than a pop star, pretends to be shocked and worried for Teresa. Melissa vows to be there for Teresa.
She calls her on the phone where Teresa is stirring a pot of colored water on the stove because the script read ‘pretend to cook ingredientzes’. Melissa expresses her concern and Teresa says they haven’t pled to anything yet, while Gia sits there with tears filling her eyes. I am really sad to see that reports were true and Teresa will indeed be filming how the legal situation affects her daughters.
Teresa Giudice is the master of putting on a happy face, despite the drama surrounding her. She’s always pretending everything is fine! But finally, unfortunately, the facade is being forced to crack as she and husband Joe Giudice deal with the upcoming federal sentencing related to a 41 count fraud indictment and the sudden loss of Joe’s father.
In addition, with Real Housewives of New Jersey airing, Teresa’s problems are about to be thrust in our faces to dissect. And of course, since nothing with RHONJ is as it seems, the recent so-called reunited Teresa and Melissa Gorga are already falling apart.
Reality Tea received an exclusive scoop from an inside source about what’s going on behind the scenes at RHONJ ‘Headquarters’.
Real Housewives of New Jersey is upon us – and with it comes the mayhem that always follows. With a brand new cast – that also includes their own family drama – plus the addition of Melissa Gorga‘s former bestie Amber Marchese, things are bound to get interesting. Finally somebody that knew Missy way back when..
Melissa warns – it gets exciting! “There’s some hair-pulling! There’s arguments, there’s a lot of laughs. I definitely think the new girls came ready to go. I think the viewers are going to love watching all of this unexpected stuff.”
Melissa is also gearing up for a different kind of season; one where she and sister-in-law Teresa Giudice finally aren’t at odds. “I feel like I don’t want to fight anymore. I think we’ve agreed to disagree on certain things,” Melissa says of her relationship with Teresa. “There’s a bigger picture going on obviously in her life. I think right now, she needs family, and it’s a time for family to back her up, and her brother and I are here for her.”
