'Andy! Andy! Andy! Your mom's a liar, your dad's a coward, and I slept with them both – and Juicy, bitch! bleeep, bleeepetey, bleeep, bl-bleeep, bleep, c-word.' Oh was this Jerry Springer we watched last night or Real Housewives of New Jersey? I really couldn't tell because it was so embarrassing, disgusting, and low-brow.
Whatever happened last night, I am fed up. And I am incredibly horrified by the behavior I witnessed. There was once a time – long before many of you wee youngins were around – when grown women who were also possessors of the title "Housewives" behaved like grown women on TV.
And then this stuff started happening and the bottom dropped out. But to draw it out until people stoop to the lowest and expose their families as truly dysfunctional is not what Housewives was ever about. If I was interested in watching Intervention, I would! I'm not.
Frankly, I am bored with the over-blown drama, the orchestrated plots. The storylines that never reveal the true story but always read between the lines. And the lies. So tired of the lies.
And I'm really saddened this is what it's all become. So sit there, smug and manipulative in your $2000 suit, Andy Cohen, and continue acting like you're none the wiser and it's all a little game. Just keep sitting there like the king of fools.
Hey y'all! It's time for your daily Teresa Giudice round-up! So in today's exhaustive report we'll discuss how Teresa is possibly getting a spinoff, how she never yanked Melissa Gorga's arm at a children's birthday party, and how she had a breakdown following the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. We've also got some EXCLUSIVES from our source on Teresa's possible spinoff and her brother-in-law, who seems like quite the scandalmonger.
Oh – and Jacqueline Laurita is all on the tweeter again (I swear she's the internet's number one twit) responding to Teresa'saccusations on Anderson Live yesterday. If you recall, Teresa accused Jacqueline of sending her harassing texts and mentioned she wanted to go to the cops because it gave her chills. Well if Teresa can go to the cops, Jacqueline can too! So HA!
Tonight begins the two-part season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And so it goes – we are finally nearing the end of the line with this series. Just it seems RHONJ will never come to an end! At this point I think Bravo needs to start a totally separate network dedicated entirely to Jersey. It'll really make things easier.
Following the explosive Posche Fashion Show: Round 3 (aka the cesspool of all things drama where Jersey is concerned) the ladies of Jersey entered into a tidal wave of denial and furtive tweeting; each one accusing the other of being culprit. I guess tonight we leave it up to the Gods of Editing to determine who truly is to blame. My money is on Kim D.
After last year's reunion most of the ladies have not spoken to each other – and no one has spoken to Teresa Giudice. Until this season's reunion, that is! Following filming nearly all the Housewives spoke out about their experiences on twitter, yet Teresa remained quiet saving her thoughts for an episode of Watch What Happens Live.

Aaaahhh… Real Housewives of New Jersey - just when I thought this season would never end and we'd be trapped in a labyrinth with Melissa Gorga popping up around random corners to sing at us and Teresa Giudice chasing us down calling us "prostitution whore!" comes word that the reunion for the eternal fourth season has filmed.
So there is light at the end of the tunnel. I won't be recapping RHONJ until the end of eternity. To quote a certain NJ lady, "Thank you Jesus!"
Yes, that's right this weekend the RHONJ reunion filmed to insane reviews. Just ask anyone who was there. Taking to twitter the cast reacted to what was surely a PTS inducing nightmare of screaming, accusations, hysteria, and one very afraid and powerless Andy Cohen shrieking randomly for people to shut-up. Oh, Andy… why you so useless?
On last night’s FINAL episode of Real Housewives of New JerseyI breathed a serious sigh of relief, opened up the wine for a guzzlet or two, and prepared to cringe. I have run out of steam with these people. I’m going to try and cover this the best I can, but there was a lot of yelling about things like Kool-aid that left me confused. So, hang in there!
The show opens with Andy’s attempts at fun by bringing up Joe G-to-the-Orga’s horniness and The Gorgasm? A montage of all the couples’ lovey-dovey moments is replayed, except for Caroline and Albert. Cause I guess they don’t have them – or Caroline just won’t discuss them. Uh-huh. Apparently Joe Gorga has a history of dressing up like a lady – it goes way back to when he was little. This is explains a lot. Did The Gorgas want two Teresas?! Ooooohhh… the stress that image just caused!
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO READ THE REST!
As long as there has been reality television, there have been reality television feuds. And of course, as long as there have been Real Housewives, there have been Real Housewives feuds. Case in point, the current feud involving Teresa and the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast!
If you watched the first half of the New Jersey reunion last week, you saw, as did the rest of the world, what would appear to be a very unlikely housewives’ feud between former friends and now enemies Teresa Guidice and Caroline Manzo.And as we learn on tonight’s reunion conclusion, the Guidice/Manzo blow-up seems to have undertones of Manzo versus Manzo as Teresa makes sure to bring up the discord between Caroline and her sister Dina Manzo.
But first in an interview with People right after the reunion, Teresa claims to love her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga despite just telling In Touch Weekly that Melissa married her brotherJoe Gorga for his money. “I love my family,” states Teresa. “I love Melissa. My brother is married to her for seven years… I’m trying to make things better.” Teresa adds: “They are trying to make it look like I’m hurting Melissa. But, if anything, I always stuck by her.” Always stuck by her???
When it comes to Caroline, Teresa plays the victim changes her tune, saying, “I don’t get Caroline’s problem with me. I never did anything to intentionally hurt people.” Maybe, maybe not, but I certainly never heard her apologize for unintentionally hurting people. Claiming she was “set up” by her cast mates on the reunion, Tre continues, “I never, ever got in between Dina and Caroline. It’s none of my business.” That may very well be the case, but one has to wonder, why does she even bring it up tonight then?
Maybe her reason is spite. Caroline did reveal on national television that Teresa recently called brother Joe an a$$hole. Family tit-for-tat, perhaps? You air my dirty laundry, I’ll air yours! Thankfully, Caroline has taken to her Bravo blog to clear up any confusion on her part.
She writes, “I don’t regret anything I said at the reunion to Teresa, because I was telling the truth. All of our emotions were on overdrive from the night before and I couldn’t hide my feelings. I didn’t see why I should at this point. Wait a minute, correction, I do regret one thing; I will never forget the look on Joe Gorga’s face when he saw the clip of me outing Teresa’s true feelings about reconciling with him. Many of you think Teresa said this to me in confidence, not true, it was widely known and said to others beside myself. Joe didn’t deserve to hear that, and I wish I never said it.”
Caroline also touched on the comments Teresa made about her in her cookbook which included calling her 1/16th Italian. “It was never about the Italian remark, it was about the underhanded sneaky insults towards the rest of us followed by an insincere apology. I referred to her once as a modern day Lucille Ball because of her flighty “innocence” and goofy personality back in the day. To use my words as a defense against your insulting remarks towards my son is unbelievable. Apology not accepted.”
Discussing her issues with Dina, Caroline states that her reasoning for wanting to keep it quiet on the reunion had less to do with her pride and more to do with her parents. She says, “My fear in having this issue exposed had nothing to do with me at all. It was all about my parents.” She continues, “Teresa knew how important it was to me to keep the Dina issue hidden, but tried numerous times throughout the season and through her blogs and interviews to reveal it. She finally had her moment at the reunion. Did she think I would deny it? Congratulations, Teresa, the only thing you succeeded in doing was hurting my parents. What a fool I’ve been in my efforts to bring your family together when it was your intent to destroy mine from the start.” Ouch!
Caroline continues to discuss the feud with her sister, admitting, “Despite all the rumors circulated about Dina and me, I remained completely silent, making not one single remark. Many of you confuse my silence on Twitter, Facebook, and in the media as guilt. Quite the opposite, it’s a matter of self-respect. Why sensationalize the situation? I’m only writing this now, because I believe as viewers you deserve some answers, I will never speak of this again, as it is a private matter that will take time and love to heal, but mark my words, this too shall pass.”
Dinaechoes her sister’s sentiments, stating, “Teresa has nothing to do with my relationship with my sister. I wish all of the girls peace and happiness in their lives. As far as my relationship with my sister is concerned I’m sure in time things will mend itself.”
Caroline finishes up her blog by stating: “Teresa may think she hurt me, but what she doesn’t understand is that she can never hurt me, because I take into account where it’s coming from. Unlike you, Teresa, I can look in the mirror and hold my head high knowing that I have always given the best of myself to my family and friends. I live my life with integrity and self-respect.”
So Teresa didn’t cause the feud, she just brings it up tonight on the second half the reunion? I, for one, can’t wait to see the drama unfold. Watch a sneak peek of tonight’s madness below. The conclusion of the reunion airs tonight on Bravo at 10PM ET.

The latest is Caroline Manzo is finally speaking out against her former friend and costar Teresa Giudice. Following Sunday night’s finale which revealed the growing rift between the two ladies, The Caroline is not mincing her words when it comes to Tre! The drama began when Teresa insulted Caroline by stating she is “as Italian as the Olive Garden,” and then to add insult to injury, she also took a shot at Caroline’s son Christopher Manzo in her cookbook.
In an interview with Life & Style magazine, Caroline, 50, states fame has changed Teresa, 39. “I’m done with her,” Caroline states. “We’re housewives, nothing more,” Caroline asserts. “But she believes she’s Angelina Jolie or something!”
“She’s a bully,” Caroline adds. “She crossed the line in so many ways in trying to maintain this image that she has, that there were no boundaries.”
Oh but there’s more! In a separate interview with The Insider, Caroline accuses Teresa of playing the victim. “You don’t have the right to play the victim when you’re the one doing all the hitting,” said Caroline. “Everybody here wants to hug… Everybody loves each other here, it’s all love.”
Teresa apparently sees herself as the victim as she blogged last week: ” The whole time we were filming, I had no idea what other people were saying about me. I just assumed they were all my friends.”
Caroline, who had remained loyal to Teresa on the show, almost to a fault, then goes on to admit she even mistreated Teresa’s sworn enemies family members Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile based on what Teresa had told her about them.
“I was awful to them, awful to them. [Kathy] came to my house, this poor thing — her angel wings are underneath the dress, you don’t see them — and I abused her. Because I had a preconceived notion about who they were, and it was so far from the truth,” said Caroline.
Caroline finishes the interview stating: “Why should I feel sorry for somebody that walks away from people that want to help her, that walks away from love and tries to hurt?”
A former friend of Teresa’s tells Life & Style: “She is just not the same person. When filming began on the show, she seemed so sweet but now she doesn’t seem to care about the people around her.”
Our RHONJ insider told us Teresa is now friendless as evident by the fact that none of her RHONJ castmates attended her recent party to launch her Fabellini wine with the exception of Dina Manzo.
And speaking of Dina, Caroline is finally confirming what we reported a while back. Back in June, we broke the news that Caroline and her sister Dina were no longer on speaking terms. A source confirmed the story to us back then in addition to the fact that the two sisters stopped following each other on twitter.
Back then Caroline denied the feud, perhaps wanting to protect her family, but in a new preview clip for the upcoming reunion, she finally comes clean. In fact she blames Teresa for straining her relationship with Dina.
In the clip below, Teresa says to Caroline, “No wonder why Dina doesn’t want to talk to you! Like, what happened to you?” Caroline responds: “I lost a lot of my relationship with her.” Andy Cohen then asks, “With Dina?” Caroline states, “Yeah.” Andy asks over what, and Caroline right at Teresa and says, “I’m looking at you.” Whoa!
Part 1 of the reunion airs this Sunday on Bravo at 10/9c.

Teresa Giudice says to Caroline, “No wonder why Dina doesn’t want to talk to you! Like, what happened to you?” Caroline says, “I lost a lot of my relationship with her.” Andy asks, “With Dina?” Caroline says, “Yeah,” and when Andy asks over what, Caroline looks to Teresa and says, “I’m looking at you.”
