Jacqueline made some not so cryptic tweets last night which made it clear she is over the Bravo hit series. In fact, Jacqueline stated she is ready to move on from the show.
First Jacqueline revealed she will be skipping the season 3 reunion, which is taping today. “I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!” wrote Jacqueline. Yikes! A reunion show without a current housewife has yet to happen in the history of Bravo. Not sure the network will be too happy with one of the main characters missing out on a reunion show.
What is clear is that Jacqueline was well enough last night to attend the annual Posche Fashion Show. So it appears her reasons for wanting to skip the reunion today has less to do with her health. In fact, her next series of tweets seem to prove that.
Jacqueline added, “Someone( not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”
She continued, “2b honest.I’m tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn’t know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.” No word yet on whom she’s referring to.
But what is clear is that some major drama went down at the Posche fashion show last night and it involved Teresa Giuidice! Of course. According to the tweets of those in attendance, there was a fight that went down in the bathroom during the fashion show. The rumor is that the fight was between Teresa and her new nemesis Monica Chacon. If you recall, Monica was Kim G’s guest to Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party this season, which of course led to nothing but drama.
Based on some of the tweets, it seems producers of the show might have purposely invited Monica in other to set off some drama. This would make sense in regards to Jacqueline’s tweets about a “set up.”
Soap actress, Martha Byrne, who was at the show, was live tweeting through the event. She tweeted last night: “Fight in the bathroom,” adding minutes later – “Teresa in bathroom with ….” Martha, who also stated some of the fashion show drama was scripted, tweeted some photos from the event. Those are below!
It also appears Joe Gorga was somehow involved in the whole fiasco as he has been making tweets about Teresa all day. First Joe tweeted — “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT” Joe then went on to retweet the following messages from fans: -
“I think Teresa must have set Melissa and/or Joe up to look bad (ie @JacLaurita tweets and now @joegorga tweets).”
“Me too theresa changed all bout her & $$$ nothing else shame.”
Danielle Staub, who claimed producers of the show had been contacting her to film, has also been mum on twitter since yesterday. Leaving some to wonder if she is involved in this fiasco is any shape or form.
In the meantime, below is a screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets -
For the most part, the NJ housewives have been mum on twitter today as the reunion is filming. Though Jacqueline did manage to tweet this message just hours ago – “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
On last night’s episode of the Real Housewives of Beverly HillsAdrienne deals with a chatty Kim, Kyle throws a charity event, and Lisa confronts the enemy – who happens to be Brandi Glanville. And Taylor! And speaking of Taylor – let’s just pretend she wasn’t there!
Leaving for what is possibly the last Kings game in Sacramento, Adrienne and Paul are waiting on a PJ (that’s slang for private jet) for Kim to arrive and she is late. Very late. When she finally shows up, Paul is concerned about her face. He is itching to get his anesthesia out and do a little nip tuck right on the plane. Hey, the seats recline! I’m concerned about her state of mind? Under the influence or flustered? On the flight, a very spastic Kim raaaaambles on and on making Paul and Adrienne feel a little nutty themselves. Adrienne gives Kim a direction for her loquaciousness by bringing up Crazy Creek. Kim provides Paul with a spot-on demonstration of Lisa skiing in her fur hat– I was dying! Ahahaha! Kim also lets us know she was humped by a bra and thong-wearing Taylor and yeah, she’s had PTS ever since!

If you recall, the Bravo network announced the first ever Housewives tour back in August and Jill was scheduled to headline the October 15 date in Atlanta alongside Nene Leakes, Melissa Gorga and Marysol Patton.
When Bravo announced the tour back then, many assumed it meant Jill would be a sure thing for the Real Housewives of New York City season 5! But as we all learned, that was not the case. Days after Bravo finally confirmed the firings, Jill, 48, made it clear she would no longer be a part of the tour. Not a fan of Jill’s but I must say I actually see her point of view in this. Really, who wants to do PR for the company that just publicly fired them?
So it’s a surprise today that Alex, who was also fired by Bravo, is more than happy to take Jill’s spot! In a statement to UsWeekly, Alex, 37, cites her “close relationship” with Bravo as her reason for having no pride doing the tour!
“I have a close relationship with Bravo and when they asked me to step in I was happy to accept,” Alex states. “The audience coming to see The Real Housewives Live Tour want to know about the past and our experience of filming and being a ‘Real Housewife’ on Bravo TV. With four seasons under my belt, I have plenty to say about that subject! The live show format is similar to a tour I did with the New Jersey ladies a few years ago, and we had a lot of fun doing it.”
In other RHONY news, non-fired housewife who really should have been fired Countess LuAnn de Lesseps reportedly fell off a table while dancing.
According to the NY Post, Countess Lulu took a Snooki-style tumble during a birthday party over the weekend at the uptown restaurant Desmond’s. Apparently, Lulu heard her song come on – Katy Perry’sLast Friday Night – during which she decided to do some table dancing. Unfortunately for the Countess, she ended taking a fall and cutting her knee.
The Post doesn’t state whether or not the Countess was inebriated. This isn’t however the first time there has been a report of the Countess acting wild in public. Here’s to hoping the Bravo cameras will be around to capture it all next time!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ALEX AGREEING TO DO THE TOUR AFTER BEING FIRED? DESPERATE OR OKAY?
Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice seems to be fighting with everyone these days. Last week’s episode contained an explosive fight with Kathy Wakile, it looks like theManzos no longer consider the Giudices “like family”, Jacqueline Laurita is over the petty nonsense, and Teresa just can’t stop saying negative things about people! But in her defense, it appears no one else can stop saying negative things about her either!
A quick peek at Teresa’s Bravo blogs confirms that Teresa is annoyed with everyone and perhaps a real rift is developing between Teresa and Caroline!
In a recent blog, Teresa addresses the book signing and subsequent text drama between her husband and her brother, Joe Gorga. And after stating that it “meant so much to her that her brother and Melissa and Kathy and Richie” all came to her book signing, Teresa goes onto complain that it took them so long to get there! “I had dozens of book signings all summer long and into the fall. The book signing they all came to was at the end of January. That’s a long time not to come out and support me, no? I talked to my whole family about them all the time. It was a big deal to me and I was hoping they would come.”
Taking the high road as always, she let’s us know that her brother and Melissa don’t care about her best-selling cookbooks, “I never got one public congrats. Not one. (I still haven’t…) For the record, I have congratulated Melissa and my brother for her song on Twitter several times and I’m happy to do it here on my blog as well: Congrats to both of you!” Passive aggressive much, Tre?
In defense of Joe Giudice’s rude texts and drunken anger, Teresa reiterates that he believed Joey’s attendance at the signing “was to look good on the show.” She goes on to point out that she hopes that was not the case, because “we’re all working on getting to a better place now.” So, writing snarky comments on a nationally published network blog isn’t going to further strain an already tumultuous relationship?
Responding to Caroline’s comments about Gia’s heartbreaking song to her family at Melania’s birthday party, Teresa insists “ She’s not screaming out in pain or whatever Carolinesaid. She’s a normal ten-year-old girl who’s creative and passionate.”
Teresa also addresses that she was “surprised” to hear Caroline and her kids speaking negatively about her and her books. “I had no idea they did that. I’ve always adored Caroline’s whole family and have never said a word about them, so it was a little shock.” She does admit that the Manzo family likes “to laugh a lot and they have silly senses of humor,” concluding that, “Life’s too short to take offense to the small things!”
And after last week’s trip to Punta Cana, both Teresa and Kathy both have plenty to say about that little fight they got into regarding how Teresa may or may not be a negligent parent and Kathy may or may not have been intentionally insulting her.
Teresa states her reason for verbally lashing out at Kathy on the beach, in a blog entitled “Go Time”, goes a little something like this: “I had never gotten to talk to Kathy about her comment about Audriana being left unattended, and yeah, it bothered me a lot. She got her little dig in about detaching from my children, and it gave me a chance to finally ‘go there.’ “
“It might seem like Kathy’s comment to me about detaching from her children was innocent, but believe me, I know my cousin. I’ve known her a long time.” Reacting to gossip that Caroline and Jacqueline might be taking Melissa and Kathy’s sides against some of the pettyness, she asserts:”I get that the Manzos and Lauritas don’t know this about her, but I know how she is. She likes to give little subtle digs that hit people where she knows it will hurt them.”
Kathy, who meant it when she said she wasn’t backing down, strikes back calling Teresa out as being the reason their relationship has deteriorated!
“What happened to moving forward, not rehashing the past, and staying positive? Why do you insist on pointing fingers about something that happened six months ago?”
And then Kathy accuses Teresa of having “issues”! “Don’t keep holding me responsible for your inability to see things for what they really are. She obviously has some unresolved issues and once again mishears, misunderstands, and puts her own spin on it.” Those are some fightin’ words, Kath!
In more positive Kathy news, she recently did an interview with The Celebrity Café about the future of her catering company and, in typical housewives fashion, the other business ventures she has on the horizon.
“We are having to hold on catering for now. We are still looking at different options,” Kathy explained. And revealing what those options may be, she confesses: “I’m really working on getting a line out of desserts that people respond to. It may be a retail store.”
When asked if she had thoughts on doing a cookbook, Kathy disclosed: “I would love to put a cookbook out one day, but first I want to make sure that it’s something I’m really behind.” Ok, so reading between the lines, that means expect one on bookshelves next year!
Finally; The lady who wants to repay her creditors the old-fashioned way by, you know, sending them a check, has just become the new face of PearlBrite! Teresa released the following statment about the partnership: “I am excited to be part of this innovative teeth whitening solution that offers great results at an affordable price for the consumer and an amazing business opportunity for the individual or business owner. As a shareholder and devoted user of the company products I see a bright and profitable future for all of us.”
Teresa has inked a three-year endorsement deal with the company, for which she is also a shareholder. PearlBrite stated: “We are very excited to have Teresa as a shareholder, spokesperson and friend of the company and believe the relationship will bring great opportunity for growth.” And for those of you who may want to go into business with the Giudices, PearlBrite is a network marketing company with many opportunities available!
Sadly, for those of you dying to see Melissa’s singing debut there will be no new episode of RHONJ tonight, but the show resumes it’s never-ending season next week at it’s regularly scheduled time!
Thoughts on Teresa’s Bravo Blogs – is she defending herself or starting the dramz? Thoughts on Kathy’s newest baking venture – would you buy her products? What do you think of Teresa’s new PearlBrite deal?
In the never-ending saga that is the Real Housewives of New Jersey, the gang heads to Punta Cana and it’s more of the same: drunken antics, terrible trashy clothing, and bickering. To borrow a phrase from the one, the only Juicy: “Shut UP!”
Preparing for a luxurious 5-day kid-free stay in Punta Cana on Bravo’s dime, at The Gorga Marble Compound, Joe, after stuffing his children in a suitcase, begins personally inspecting all Melissa’s stripper bikinis by sniffing the crotch. In front of his mother-in-law and his children he is sniffing the crotch of his wife’s bathing suit while she dangles another hoochie mama confection in front of his face.
At the Giudice marble mansion, Teresa has raided the Victoria’s Secret Swimsuit Catalog from 1993 and is packing every sequined string bikini in the land. Melania takes this opportunity to assault and batter both her sisters. Um… where is Gabriella? Was she taken away by family services or something – I haven’t seen her all season. Maybe she’s already too embarrassed to be participating in this show. Joe promises to try and have a good time – Gia echos what we’re all thinking when she gives him a disbelieving look.

It all started with this humble Tweet from an Auto-Tune inflicted New Jersey Housewife who apparently thinks she can sing and thinks she as clout with the Bravo-machine: “@GreggyBennett @jaymohr37 why are u tweeting him? He’s such an asshole… Pulls food out of peoples mouths.”
See, Greg Bennett, aka Albie and Christopher Manzo’s roommate and mister, is now apparently the “pseudo-manager” of Melissa Gorga and he also has a twitterelationship with comedian and Real Housewives of New Jersey Blogger extraordinaire, (whose recaps make me bitter and jealous!) Jay Mohr. Part of this Twitter-lationship includes pitching some really scary TV ideas of his own…
Anyways, back to the feud! Apparently, Melissa is upset that Jay is unnecessarily harsh about her and her family on these said blogs and she felt the need to call Jay out!
Melissa’s anger began after reading Jay’s most recent blog where he, predictably, insulted Melissa’s singing:
“Did anyone else notice that last episode, after Teresa autographed a book for her brother, Joey made her read it to him? This is the second or third time Joey Gorga has made someone read to him. He is either illiterate or a pimp.”
“Melissa’s voice on speaker phone is somehow worse than her voice while singing. On speaker phone Melissa sounds like a cross between a Vietnamese lady and one of Charlie Brown’s teachers. Teresa tells Melissa that they both need to talk to their Joes and Melissa snaps like Mike Tyson at a spelling bee. Melissa talks so loudly and long and shrilly without a break it sounds like she is calling a horse race.”
“Melissa plays her song for the boys and they say they like it. Then they inexplicably ask Melissa to sing at their company’s launch party. Are they launching ear plugs?”
Well, Melissa felt he took his insults a step too far and she confronted Jay on Twitter, in what began a Twittercation:
Melissa started with the above Tweet to Greg and then when Greg responded: “@melissagorga girl did your twitter get hacked? #confused” Melissa explained: “No it’s Meee, I don’t care for jay, do u read his blogs.,,,he’s not funny anymore” After a fan criticized Jay’s blogs as no longer being “objective.” Melissa responded to the fan and included Jay and Bravo in the response, whining: “@jaymohr37 @BravoAndy @bravotv guess they don’t have my back with this….”
Jay retaliated by Tweeting: “Listen up! @melissagorga I CRUSHED Teresa four weeks in a row. I CRUSHED Joe G. Too! WHY ARE YOU ON REALITY TELEVISION THEN?!!” Touche, Mama Gorga, Touche. Go back to being off display if you don’t want people “critiquing” your hypocritical behavior!”
Jay launched another Tweet: “@melissagorga Did you think I was mean when I said your daughter was the most beautiful child I had ever seen? Don’t remember a thank you.” “For the record @melissagorga tonight told me to blog negative things about @Teresa_Giudice books and businesses. #fact #sad”
In Melissa’s defense (she needs one bad!) it appears Melissa did not ask Jay to trash Tre but rather asked him why he trashes her singing but never Teresa’s books and businesses. Melissa then responded with: “Never her books or business, crush? Hardly… Mean doesn’t =funny” Yeah, Melissa – family comes first!
Real Fan Club also called Melissa out on her nonsense, Tweeting: If @melissagorga can’t handle @jaymohr37, a comedian, then she has no business trying 2 break into the industry! #Lifeofanentertainer. Melissa responded with this ridiculous Tweet: “@REALFANSCLUB @jaymohr37 I can handle him just don’t like him, Don’t get it twisted!” With Jay snarkily responding: “DONT GET IT TWISTED is my new single.”
Melissa even involved co-star, Caroline Mnazo, Twhining: “Carolinnneeee!!!!He’s soo mean….. get the bat!” Caroline, pleading the fifth, commented back: “hey you two, don’t make me get the wooden spoon out – play nice! he’s not mean, he’s doing his job – you know me – I don’t support mean – now kiss and make ups kids….”
After realizing everyone alive thought she was ridiculous and melodramatic, Melissa abruptly ended things by tweeting: @jaymohr37 Wow! I thought we r having fun, that took it to a whole new level, goodnight.” and “By the way read my tweets, never said to, I said, Jay doesn’t…. Big difference”
Even Greg wasn’t on her side, Tweeting: @melissagorga thick skin honey If you can’t laugh at yourself, everyone else will do it for you. Looove you.” Well said, Greggy! He also added that the feud wasn’t a publicity stunt!
Teresasurprisingly had no comment on any of this! Is she still alive?! Possibly has she broken both her hands rendering it impossible for her to type?
Melissa must have realized she was cutting off her nose to spite her face because she immediately started back pedaling, Tweeting Andy Cohen and other Housewives co-stars. Since this whole Jay-debacle I noticed there hasn’t been tweeting going on between Greg and Melissa. Dare I say, is Greg ditching the Madonna wannabe for a real celebrity friend?
Things are about to get a whole lot more interesting as the livid Melissa is slated to appear on Watch What Happens Live, Oct 9th with her new nemesis. And yes, deep down Melissa knows he’s funny…
Thoughts on the Twitter feud? Whose side are you on? Was Melissa Jay out of line with his snarking on Melissa or does she need to toughen up?
Last night’s episode ofReal Housewives of New Jerseywas about forgiveness. Teresa and Joe work through the text-pocolypse and realize family includes their children, and perhaps it is time to put the petty bickering aside, but not before cheating their way a through a charity marathon! Oh, who am I kidding – last night’s episode was boooor-ring! It seemed to drag along for so long I couldn’t believe it was only on an hour! Maybe that’s because they talked about the same things for the thousandth time!
The episode begins Jacqueline and The Caroline talking fitness – they have big plans to “participate” in a 5K, because Caroline wants get in shape for Punta Cana – which is a week away. Nothing like last minute! Jacs is thinking she’ll just wear Spanx and work out for the trip by upping her tolerance sitting at home by guzzling wine. After exhausting the work out topic, they talk Teresa and The Caroline has a few snarky comments to make about that! Since they are talking about her, when they arrive at Jacqueline’s – who is there unannounced with her ears ringing, but Teresa wearing a pair of giant fur shoulders and heels for a snowstorm, but no coat! Caroline, who told us that while she may have lost 25lbs, she is still completely made of lasagna, tiramisu, and mozzarella, because she is in terrible shape. So, instead of exercising they sit in Jacqueline’s kitchen and eat while discussing the latest Gorgadice dramz. Well, if anything will drive you to dessert it’s hearing Teresa and Melissa out-screach at each other about stupid Joe nonsense.

Fast forward to today and in usual Teresa fashion, she is now defending the actions of her husband. Teresa, who graces the latest cover of In Touch Weekly magazine with photos of her extravagant vow renewal to Joe, tells the mag despite coming off as a jerk on national television, Joe is still her Prince Charming.
“He doesn’t act for the cameras,” says Teresa (Not helping his case there Tre!) adding that deep down Joe’s really a “sweetheart.”
When asked about Joe’s “drunken bullying” on the recent episode of the RHONJ, Teresa asserts that she wasn’t hurt by the incident. “He was drunk, in his own home and upset. I get where he was coming from.”
Teresa also insists that Joe is not verbally abusive to her — but simply a guy who speaks his mind. “Joe is Joe,” she states. “You really have to know him to know it’s not malicious.” She adds, “You learn, with age, to let things bother you less and less.”
In other news, Melissa Gorgadiscusses the hardship of doing the RHONJ in the beginning and how she decided to join the show in an interview with The Insider. Below are excerpts from Melissa’s interview -
TheInsider.com: What’s it been like watching yourself on television?
Melissa Gorga: In the beginning it was hard, but the more I watch it, the more I enjoy it. I’m now at the point where I feel grateful that I’m getting to share my life with America. Show them how I do things. It’s a great experience and I’m eating up every minute of it.
Insider: Teresa and her husband have not said very nice things about you and your husband. Has that been hard?
Melissa: It is. We all went through it months ago so to sit there and rewatch it and find out all these new things that people said behind your back in the confessionals is hard. It’s hard not to pick up the phone and ask, “How could you say that about me?!?” But I take everything I see with a grain of salt because it was said when we were in that place. It’s always hard to go back and watch it, but we knew what we were signing up for.
Insider: Having watched Teresa go through it for two seasons, what made you want to be a part of this?
Melissa: You know, in the beginning, Joe and I weren’t sure if we wanted to do it. But because it really involved my husband’s family, I completely left the decision up to him. It was so much more personal for him, so if he said yes, we were in, if he said no, we were out. I think he knew that we had something to offer and he went for it.
Insider: The cast is about to go on a big vacation together. Can’t imagine that’s going to be good.
Melissa: Yea, we go to Punta Cana and it’s crazy. Kathy & Teresa get into a little tiff on the beach, but there’s always a lot of fun mixed in with the drama – which is the Housewives way!
And finally, following a two week hiatus, a new episode of the RHONJ airs tonight on Bravo! On the 16th episode this season titled ‘Singing in the Pain,” the wives are up and running when they participate in a charity race, with Teresa’s competitive nature on full display. Meanwhile, Melissa premieres her song to an unforgiving crowd in Hoboken. And Teresa throws a birthday bash for one of her daughters, highlighted by a jaw-dropping gift.
The episode airs at 10/9c. A preview clip is below!
