I'm so curious as to how many of our RT readers live in or around New Jersey and have attended these multiple Real Housewives of New Jersey meet-and-greets. I'm sure all of the franchises have them, but I only seem to hear about the ones happening around the Garden State. I'm not kidding, I'd love to have my picture made with any one of the ladies. I'd be so star struck that I wouldn't care that I don't care for all most of them.
If you were fortunate enough to be in Brunswick earlier this week, I hope you were able to catch Melissa and Poison Gorga as they posed with fans. What I wouldn't give to meet Poison. He's just such a caricature. He needs to start hawking something of his own (besides his wife), because I would totally buy whatever he is selling. The possibilities are endless! Wow, Lauren, digress much?
As you know, I'll be sharing some Watch What Happens Live posts sporadically throughout the week, and for Monday's show, I was in full recap mode. For last night's episode, I tried to go less recap/more highlight reel to see which style our wonderful readers prefer. Please sound off with your opinions in the comments section!
Andy Cohen's guests last night were former Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kim Zolciak Biermann and Tony award winner and writer Harvey Fierstein. The leading lady of Harvey's Broadway hit Kinky Boots is the bartender. Harvey thinks Kim's hair is real (um, does he need glasses?), clarifying, if she bought it, it's really hers. Fair enough. If I close my eyes and just listen to Harvey's voice, I can easily picture Big Ang from Mob Wives!
The drinking game alert is "boots" (said thirty times throughout the show!), and we learn that Kim keeps all her old pregnancy tests. Ew.
I'm not sure if you've noticed but there's been a green mesh dress floating around the Real Housewives circuit. Maybe they're all trading clothes now? Sharing is caring, after all! At least according to my son's preschool teacher.
First Kim Zolciak was spotted in the side-boob baring spectacular on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kim says hers is the original Stella which must be why it was much too tight and revealing, cause you can't get a loaner dress altered. Her stylist provided the duds and celebs (or wannabe celebs) borrow gowns all the time so no shame in that!

Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter 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 the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Not, of course, because we think Teresa is an amazingly kind individual who would never, ever plot to ruin her sister-in-law's reputation, but because the image conscious Mrs. Giudice has her own reputation to protect. Disputing rumors that she is out to undo all of their family therapy sessions, Teresa insists she has no ill-will towards Melissa and is happy the families are getting along!
"My brother and Melissa and I have been in a good place for a long time now," Teresatells RumorFix. I'm thinking Teresa's definition of 'long time' and mine are different, but she's probably on reality TV time! She continues, "I would never do anything to hurt my family, ever. I don’t give two craps about rumors about Melissa’s past, as long as she treats my brother and my parents well, we’re good!”
Caroline Manzo has promised a more peaceful season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. She's also promised the ladies are working to mend fences and self-reflect over the last two seasons where famewhoring and petty drama got the best of them. I certainly hope I never again have to watch a reunion like the last two!
Apparently the cast that brawls together, stays together because Caroline says her friendship with Teresa Giudice is currently a work in progress, but they're working on it!
“I’m thrilledMelissa [Gorga] and Teresa are talking, that they’re trying to work things out, that’s the way things should be," Caroline tells Naughty But Nice Rob. "Between Teresa and myself it remains to be seen. There’s been a lot of self-reflection, a lot of conversation trying to mend a lot of broken bridges. I can’t tell you how the story’s going to end because I don’t know.”
