After looking like a s#*!-stirring suck-up on this week’s episode, with her husband saying he’s not allowed to hang out with the Juicys because of their legal issues, Amber is trying to set the story straight.
“Neither Jim nor I have ever been judgmental of Joe and Teresa [Giudice]. At this point, we hadn’t even met Joe Giudice, and had only met Teresa once at our party. We knew of their situation, but still opened the invitation to them without regret,” Amber begins.
Melissa Gorga is no stranger to being in the middle of some drama. Since joining the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the On Display singer has been constantly locking horns with her sister-in-law, Teresa Giudice. But since their feud has been placed on hold, so Teresa and her husband can attend to their legal issues, Melissa has found another way to keep things interesting.
On last night’s episode, we saw Melissa stir the pot by telling the twins — Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitan0 — that Amber Marchese had been spreading rumors behind their backs. So how does Melissa justify her behavior?
Melissa Gorga, behind-the-scenes s#*!-stirrer and perpetual wannabe victim, tackled the double-trouble twins with some gossip and found that Teresa Giudice isn’t the only person who flips-the-f-out!
Before all that, Joe and Melissa embark upon a new career – one they’re suited for! Joe bought a big ol’ garbage truck and announced they’re in the garbage business. At first I thought he meant they ARE the garbage business, which of course, but they are for real compacting garbage. This type of garbage is a truck specifically designed to incinerate important papers. And if Juicy or Chris Laurita‘s “paperwork” are any indication – I say that truck is going to be doing a lot of business! Also now they can finally “smoosh” all evidence of Melissa’s past – like the Lookers! paychecks!
Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller had a line of fans waiting to meet her and a book signing and Lisa Vanderpump filmed some scenes for RHOBH with husband Ken Todd. Also spotted: LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian doing interviews to promote their (epically failing) show.
Former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin was also spotted… for reasons unknown. I have a feeling Jill sniffed out reality stars in Vegas, popped a squat, and hoped someone would pose for pictures with her. Oh Jill…
The event at Caesars Palace paired each of the housewives with a high roller from the casino for silly games. One game was walking on a runway. Of course, Kenya‘s no stranger to a runway, but she got ahead of herself and took a major spill. There are no words to describe what she did next! See video of Kenya’s fall and snapshots of the Bravolebrities below.
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.
