Melissa backtracks and now wishes she hadn’t said that she was moving away because of sister-in-law Teresa Giudice. “So as you already know, we moved to Franklin Lakes last September and you will see us in our rental home this season. We bought a property there and are building a house a couple miles away from where we are renting. Watching this episode makes me think about two things that I wish I could go back and erase. The first was making that statement about why we wanted to move and the second was not listening to my gut and going through with the sale of our Montville home to the person who bought it.”
Kai claims that things didn’t go in Melissa and Joe’s favor as several reports claimed after their court hearing last week. He shared the court order and some additional information with us.
Kai says the court hearing wasn’t anything like the news reports claimed. “I got a fair and favorable order by the Judge yesterday. The Judge never said or alleged that Mr. Gorga was getting their property back in 17 days, or the Judge would have ordered an eviction yesterday that would require the removal in 17 days. Nowhere in the order was an eviction granted.”
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.
