Melissa started off gushing about how happy she is that the family is getting along. "It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to have Sunday dinners together and really enjoy one another's company. Antonia and Milania are priceless together! That’s all I ever wanted; just to see the kids happy and see Joe and Teresa happy and be able to have all our children at one dinner table."
Last night's Real Housewives of New Jersey was all very…orange. From Caroline Manzo's hair as she bossed around her family and tried broker a treaty between Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice to Joe Gorga's billboard extravaganza, orange was definitely the color scheme. Thankfully, it's a color I like. What I don't like is all the underhanded quips and lack of accountability, but I've learned that behavior is par for the course with this crowd!
Melissa Gorga takes her boys to visit Joe at the job site and he gets a call asking him to model on a tanning salon billboard. Mel doesn't want to join him in his highway advertising debut because Tre once did a commercial for the same salon. What a throwback! Melissa doesn't want Teresa to assume she's copying her yet again. She's content just to drive the bulldozer. All of the bouncing and shrieking and "make it stop" is probably something Joe is used to hearing in the bedroom.
Teresa is hosting the first family dinner in ages. She has her girls help her prepare the table, and they are excited to see their cousins. Teresa asks the always entertaining Melania if she plans to cook for her husband when she grows up. Um no. Melania's husband will definitely be cooking for her.
You know, sometimes when the women of the different housewives franchises are promoting their endeavors, they seem real and down-to-earth. Then there are times when one will try to sound real and down-to-earth and end up coming across as totally ridiculous. In my opinion, this is what happened in a recent interview with Real Housewives of New Jersey'sMelissa Gorga.
I'm neither a fan nor a hater of Melissa, but gracious, she sounds so self-important when all I think she's trying to do is promote her new tome and connect with her fans, but it's just too much. I'm sure she's a nice girl, but please. I'll let you decide for yourselves, but in the meantime…bless her heart.
Speaking to the a local New Jersey CBS station, Melissa shares that she's always up for meeting her adoring fans. I'm sure she is! She says, “I’m very welcoming to the fans, I always take pictures and always talk to everyone. I would never come all the way out there and not talk to people.” Melissa knows who pays the bills!
Teresa Giudice is in big trouble! And not the kind of generic fodder for tabloids that usually erupts on reality TV shows.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star has just been federally indicted on 39-counts of financial fraud along with her husband Joe Giudice. Teresa and Joe both plan to plead Not Guilty and it's clear Teresa is going to try and dumb her way out of this because she has a lot to lose in going to prison. Hey, Martha Stewart's career survived, maybe Teresa's can as well?
Reality Tea's source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that while Teresa is putting on a tough exterior, reality is for real hitting home for the Giudices and things are a mess!
"Teresa and Joe are a nervous wreck," our source reveals. "Joe's parents went to court with him and Teresa today. Things are bad."
