Melissa Gorga

Teresa Giudice

Obviously that last episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was a tough one for Teresa Giudice to watch since it is the one where she and her family said goodbye to Joe Giudice as he left for his prison sentence. Like her or not, it’s clear that Teresa is a pretty strong person, so I’m sure she will fare just fine. On the bright side, it seems like things are all good with her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. The one person who she’s definitely not cool with (at all) is Jacqueline Laurita.

I was honestly a little offended that Jacqueline and any Housewife not named Teresa were so prominently featured during such a crucial episode, but I really couldn’t stomach it when Jacqueline was talking about how she was so upset seeing Joe and Teresa hug before he left. It didn’t seem authentic and it’s hard to follow her train of thought: does she love Teresa or hate her? I get that life isn’t that black and white, but it’s just such two extremes going from wanting to be BFF’s to constantly trashing her. And well, Teresa isn’t here for it.


Jacqueline Laurita

If you have been waiting for Jacqueline Laurita‘s take on the last episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, sorry, you’re sh-t out of luck.

Jacqueline claims she “can’t remember” the last episode, adding, “So I’m just going to share my thoughts on Melissa Gorga because…why not?” She says Melissa is a “two-faced trouble making RAT!” who lies. A lot. “The list is a mile long. It’s insane. I will save some of her lies in my back pocket for a later time.”

Jac blames Melissa for her “scattered emotions” about Teresa Giudice. Not PMS? Not her period? What happened to those convenient excuses?

In this week’s new roundup of reality TV star sightings we have Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann, still making their way around L.A. doing press.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills co-stars Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump were snapped as they made their way through LAX this week, likely as they returned from their cast trip to Hong Kong.

Real Housewives of New York star Luann de Lesseps stopped by the Sirius XM studio, while Bethenny Frankel was spotted on the streets of NYC with Million Dollar Listing New York’s Fredrik Eklund.

Melissa Gorga

After an emotional goodbye to Joe Giudice on this week’s Real Housewives of New Jersey, Melissa Gorga says she’s convinced family is more important than ever. And former friends like Jacqueline Laurita are, frankly, just not worth her time anymore. Claiming that friendship with Jacqueline was basically “EXHAUSTING,” Melissa sounds off in her blog about how Jacqueline cannot let go of the past.

Before unraveling that mess, Melissa focuses on Juicy Joe’s departure for “camp.” She writes, “I think we can all agree that last night’s episode was so raw and emotional. No matter how you look at the situation, it is heartbreaking to see a family go through something like this. Teresa [Giudice] and her girls are incredibly strong. I’m so happy that we were able to be there for them and have the kids spend time together with Joe Giudice before he went away.”


Vicki Gunvalson and Ramona Singer - Mohegan Sun 20th Anniversary

Several reality TV stars whooped it up in Connecticut over the weekend to help casino/resort Mohegan Sun celebrate its 20th anniversary. Obviously, no whoop it up is the real deal without Real Housewives of Orange County star Vicki Gunvalson.

Vicki was joined by Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice, Real Housewives of Potomac star Karen Huger, The Bachelorette stars JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rogers, Real Housewives of New York star Ramona Singer, and more. Look below for pictures of the reality TV stars on the red carpet, and with other attendees, including Bravo superfan Chrissy Teigen.


Juicy Goes To Prison

Last night Real Housewives Of New Jersey lost one of its greatest assets when Joe Giudice left for prison. Just think – all it took for the Gorgadices to mend their family feud was for Juicy to get incarcerated!

The episode begins counting down the days before Joe goes “away” for 41 months. No one feels it as deeply as Teresa Giudice, who tries to make each moment count with special activities for the girls to bond with their dad. First is a little Magnolia Bakery plug to decorate cupcakes for the birthdays Joe will miss while locked up. Also, there was glitter and we know Teresa has never been able to turn her back on an errant piece of glitter.

Jacqueline says goodbye to Vermont

I’m glad Jacqueline Laurita is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s a bit of a loose cannon and just lays it all out there, giving zero effs about holding back. She used to be an amazing Tipsy Tweeter but nowadays we’ll have to settle for her bitchy blogging instead. After last night’s episode Jacqueline has plenty to say, especially where Melissa Gorga is concerned. Get your popcorn and pinot because it’s a long one.

She shared, “After seeing that episode, I realized I was right about the feelings of doubt I was having about Teresa and Melissa. They were clearly not my friends before we ever got to Vermont.” Adding, “I was really upset when Teresa and Melissa brought up Strippergate to me and tried to turn it around on me. In fact, I was blown away. They both know the truth. I thought it was dirty that they teamed up to do that to me. I’m certainly not proud of the way I acted at dinner.”
