Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 4


If you take the time to blink by the time you open your eyes there will be some rehashed new Real Housewives of New Jersey drama. In the latest Melissa Gorga‘s crusade to prove she was not, under any circumstances, in any way possible a stripper, exotic dancer, go-go dancer, adult entertaintress — whatever. Nope not for one hot moment! Girl, give it up already — we don’t care!

If you remember the blog AllAboutTRH interviewed Angelo Vrohidis who was the manager of Lookers where Melissa worked possibly as a bartender (according to her) and possibly as a dancer (according to him). Melissa was so enraged by this accusation she accused him of being a drug addict on Twitter and then threatened to sue any media outlets who claimed she had danced. Even going so far as to have her ex-manager speak out saying she was a bartender and having the owner of Lookers, Chris Kontos, sign a sworn affidavit corroborating those claims. She also promised she would get payroll sheets proving she was merely a bartender.

Well, they’re heeeere! See, in his interview Angelo explained the payroll system claiming strippers were paid as independent contractors and other employees were on the bar’s payroll. “You have to understand, bartenders got paid by checks. Dancers were independent contractors that did not get paid by the establishment,” Angelo described. “Its different now but she worked a long time ago and that’s how it was back then. When Melissa worked, we didn’t pay the dancers and they didn’t pay us.”

And now Melissa AllAboutTRH has produced paystubs that verify she worked 7-hours per week for about one year (literally Jan 2003 – Dec 2003) as a part-time bartender. While, this does verify that Melissa bartended, some of her story doesn’t add up. Melissa claimed she worked at the club as a bartender for a few months and her manager, Larry Guarino, was quoted as saying: “She was a bartender for a couple of months years ago, it was such a short time. She was never ever a dancer.” Angelo also said she worked at the club for less than a year.

The payroll sheet clearly shows she was employed at least a full year. Some commenters wondered if the paystubs could be made up to substantiate Merlissa’s claims. And some fans wondered if Melissa could have been both dancing and bartending? While it really doesn’t matter and it was years ago, the stories still don’t add up for Melissa.

Moving on, things are apparently getting better between Dina Manzo and Caroline Manzo as the two sisters are planning to spend Christmas together! Wetpaint Entertainment spoke to the Manzo spawn: Albie, Chris and Lauren (I’m sure Greggy was lurking around somewhere too) who revealed Dina would be part of the family Christmas festivities. “Christmas Eve is bigger for us than Christmas Day,” Lauren explained. “My mom is one of 11 kids. We have everyone over and we have a five-course meal and tons of presents. The whole great room is filled with presents.

“She’s part of the family. At the end of the day, we’re family and we love each other, no matter what happens on the show,” Lauren added. While they were excited to talk Christmas, the Manzo siblings were less enthused about the upcoming fourth season of RHONJ.

“It’s funny, but Season 4 is going to go a little bit backwards,” Albie revealed. “They showed some of the footage in Season 3 – the part where the cookbook comes out. But Season 4 had already been shooting and starts even before that.”

“The cookbook isn’t what started all the problems, it actually came in the middle of all the trouble,” Albie continued. “So in Season 4, you’ll see all the events that led to it.” And speaking of the climactic Posche Fashion Show, Lauren describes it as a “disaster,” confirming that everyone is mad at Teresa Giudice!

While Dina may still be working on her relationship with her sister, she’s getting along swimmingly with Teresa as the two friends had a girls night out in NYC! Dina posted on Twitter that she had a “no drama” dinner with Teresa and another friend this Friday night and included a picture. A copy of the photo is below.

Teresa talked the dinner on her personal website and explained the third friend, Jackie, was Dina’s Maid of Honor. “She’s actually the one who first introduced me and Dina,” Teresa wrote. I bet Caroline loves that Jackie!

“It’s soooooo nice to be able to hang out with my girlfriends again without cameras around for a change,” Teresa continued. “We’ve promised to do it at least once a month… ” While it’s great that she wants to pursue friendships away from cameras is she going to post about it every month on her website because to me that’s pretty much the same as having cameras there!

Unfortunately for Dina she took a lot of heat on Twitter from some fans that accused her of being disloyal to her sister by continuing a friendship with Teresa. Dina responded, Tweeting: “To a few of u who just won’t give it up, just because I had dinner with a friend doesn’t mean I hate my sister. Get over it, it’s a TV SHOW!” Good point! She also pointed out to fans that Teresa was the one who reached out to her to rekindle their friendship, adding: “It works both ways doll.” Twitter… ruining the lives of C-List celebrities everywhere!

DO MELISSA’S PAYSTUBS PROVE SHE WASN’T A STRIPPER OR IS THERE MORE TO THE STORY? SHOULD DINA CONTINUE HER FRIENDSHIP WITH TERESA DESPITE THE FEUD?

The crazy continues with the ladies of the Real Housewives of New Jersey and even though the cameras aren’t rolling sisters-in-laws Melissa Gorga and Teresa Guidice are at it again!

While Teresa has been busy filming Celebrity Apprentice, Melissa has taken the opportunity to make the media rounds and do some interviews about her music “career”, her family and of course the show — specifically how she gets along with Teresa! Speaking to Fishbowl NY at Michael’s restaurant in NYC, Melissa again talked about the season three reunion and the Posche Fashion Show drama that will air in season four.

“We had just had a huge blow up the night before, and that was what was on everyone’s mind. It was so hard not to say anything. That’s why Jacqueline [Laurita] wasn’t there,” she explained about the season three reunion. “It was very confusing for us, and we were constantly trying not to say things about things that hadn’t aired yet.”

“Bravo is so sorry they shot them back to back,” she expects us to believe. “I don’t think they are ever going to do that again.” As for what happened, Melissa simply states that Teresa “tried to set me up”, claiming she is back to her “old tricks.” All of this is interesting because in several recent interviews featured on Reality Tea, Melissa has claimed the sisters-in-laws are in a better place now, getting along well and working on their relationship. She also said the show has “brought them closer together.”

This sudden change of heart wouldn’t have anything to do with a recent interview given by her ex-boss, Angelo Vrohidis, who claims Melissa was a stripper? In that same interview Angelo says Teresa had nothing to do with Melissa’s past being exposed.

Melissa goes on to add that her husband Joe Gorga, finds Teresa’s behavior “disgusting” but of course Melissa insists she is supportive of her husband’s family coming together. “The children don’t know about any of this stuff and they don’t care. They just want to be together. They really love each other. That’s what I don’t get. Why does she [Teresa] think I’d want to keep my husband away from his family? It makes no sense,” Melissa mused.

While denying that Teresa is “jealous” of her, Melissa is confused about why Teresa is bothered by her success. “I don’t know why it bothers her that I’m doing what I’m doing as a result of the show. It doesn’t take anything away from what she’s done. I think it bothers her that I even exist!”

Melissa conducted another interview with Mommyhood to Hollywood (wait – she’s a Hollywood Mom?) where she calls her relationship with Teresa a “work in progress”and again stresses it’s all about the children. “I know in my heart that I have done everything I can do to help her relationship with her brother and from this point on it’s between the two of them,” Melissa revealed.

The controversy continues for the hopeful pop star as AllAboutTRH blog (the same site that interviewed Melissa’s ex-boss) recently received an email from a person affiliated with Melissa’s publicist. Melissa is represented by “Illumination PR”. In this email, written by Will Love an entertainment reporter, he has some interesting things to say about Melissa! Including that he met Melissa when her publicist, Robyn, gave him an opportunity to meet the infamous “furtive confidante” of Danielle Staub at the 2010 Posche Fashion Show (featured in season 3).

Will goes on to describe Melissa as rude and claims that her inner circle (her sisters, I suppose) refer to her as “Lady Gorga.” Oh lawdy! Will also claims that Melissa, along with her sisters and Robyn, had a vendetta against Teresa! He claims Melissa and Robyn blacklisted Teresa, along with Kim D from a “Fashion & Beauty Week” Charity night and attempted to convince Bravo not to film the annual Posche Fashion Show in lieu of this event.

You can read the email in its entirety at AllAboutTRH and decide for yourself what you think. I’m inclined to believe there is some truth to it, but also some embellishments.

Moving on Teresa has apparently been thriving in her new gig, Celebrity Apprentice and according to her Tweets is getting along famously with Donald Trump Jr, Aubrey O’Day and Lisa Lampanelli! Anyone else disappointed about that — I was hoping for some drama!

Teresa recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where they discussed RHONJ, of course, and Teresa revealed she hasn’t spoken to Melissa “in months.” Regardless, Teresa is confident that her family will be okay and after reassuring Wendy that she loves her brother, she added “we’re going to get past all of this.” Teresa said she spent Thanksgiving with her husband, Joe Giudice‘s family.

But Teresa isn’t all that focused on family drama for the moment, because her third cookbook Fabulicious: Fast & Fit is in production and she has been promoting overtime! Teresa recently did a photo shoot for the upcoming book, which she advertises contains “sexier food.” She also released a preview of some of the recipes on her website.

“I thought you’d like to see some of our behind-the-scenes shots. Here are a couple of pictures of me prepping food, and me and my girlfriends. (I’m sooo happy to report my new cookbook is completely Housewife-free! If you can’t take a joke, you’re “fired”!),” she wrote.

And proving that she’s still Teresa underneath it all she Tweeted that the power went out during the shoot, but things got back on track when they found a generator, “Thank you Jesus!…Sign of the Cross backwards…” Ok, that’s funny — admit it!

Photos from Teresa’s shoot are below. Fabulicious: Fast & Fit hits stores in May 2012, apparently you can pre-order it on Amazon RIGHT NOW. Hurry!

The drama surrounding Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to explode! Melissa Gorga and Caroline Manzo are scrambling to get their sides’ of the story heard while ostracized castmate Teresa Giudice is indisposed filming Celebrity Apprentice.

Or perhaps they are just responding to the latest round of stories reported by In Touch Weekly, which are rumored to have been planted by Teresa, herself!

Speaking out on New York Live, Caroline did not hold back! “I noticed a change [in Teresa] when other ladies joined the cast,” she revealed. “We were acquaintances, not friends. Off camera, there was nothing — no interaction,” she insists.

“It has been an unbelievable experience. A growing experience, a learning experience, but I’ve had a lot of heartbreak because of it,” she explains, alluding to her rift with Dina Manzo, which she seems to believe was caused or at least exacerbated by Teresa. “So much I won’t say, because I don’t want to hurt anyone. I’m not going to blame the network. For a TV show, I’m not going to hurt someone. I’m not going to do it,” she declares.

Caroline is also still reeling from Teresa’s attacks against her children, who in her mind have never crossed the threshold into adulthood or something. “My children didn’t sign up for this. We put ourselves out there and have no idea.” Caroline insists, claiming they had never seen reality TV before joining the cast and were not prepared for the negativity.

Caroline also joined Melissa and Kathy Wakile for an interview with The Insider where they spoke about, what else – Teresa! Oh, and the upcoming Season 4 drama!

“Why should I feel sorry for someone who walks away from love?” Caroline asks, referring to castmate and never-really-friend Teresa. “You don’t have the right play the victim, when you’re the one doing all the hitting,” she admonished.

Describing her relationship with Teresa prior to the reunion and the explosive stripper-gate incident supposedly filmed the night before, Melissa expresses her shock over Teresa’s behavior. “I get very disappointed in her,” Melissa laments. “When we’re so good, why would you take that chance?”

“We were great, probably better than ever. And I owe a lot of that to Bravo” Melissa explains, claiming that the interaction required for the show brought them closer and helped a positive a more relationship develop.

As for the friendship between the other castmates, Melissa describes: “It’s just easy, there’s no insulting going on.” Caroline and Kathy echo those sentiments, claiming they are supportive of each other, not competitive, and they “help each other” by offering opportunity and support.

Melissa also spoke to Hollywood Life about the reunion and dealing with the sister-in-law from hell on national television. And she believes the other ladies did not gang up on Teresa!

“Everyone was upset with her,” she states. “We had an explosive night the day [before the reunion] — that was a lot of the reason for the bad blood that you saw,” Melissa reveals, refusing to give any more details about what may have happened.

“I felt the pressure she was going through,” Melissa mentions, claiming she tried to keep a low-profile since Teresa and Caroline were embroiled in so much animosity. “Obviously you saw the commotion between her and Caroline, so I didn’t want to sit there and her think that we were ganging up on her. That was not the intention at all. We’re not trying to team up on her. We are addressing the issue. That’s what the reunion is.”

Melissa also agreed that poor plagued by stripper-rumors, Jacqueline Laurita would not have been able to pull herself away from Twitter handle the reunion! “It was something that Teresa has done that Jacqueline does not agree with,” Melissa cites “She just wouldn’t be able to handle a nine-hour filming session.”

As for how Teresa could make amends with her family and her former (maybe never?) friends, Melissa thinks a simple apology will suffice. “We all do things wrong, we’re all not perfect; she just needs to be able to say ‘you know what, I’m sorry.’” Although Melissa confirms: family is family. “I’m always going to be here to support her and her children.”

My Thoughts: Caroline’s new-found relationship with Melissa and Kathy seems eerily similar to her prior fauxlationship with Teresa! And for someone who was merely an on-camera acquaintance she certainly played up the “like family/thick as thieves” angle in S2 and off camera in interviews and appearances. Which is interesting because Caroline emphatically states over and over that she does not lie. Now, I am 100 percent certain Bravo demanded their relationship seem authentic, but Caroline did a mighty good job of convincing us that it was! Also, Teresa’s reactions at the reunion seemed to indicate she believed they had an authentic relationship (although it’s hard to be sure with her).

Second of all Caroline’s children are adults and have been for the duration of filming. Therefore they did sign up for this show – they knowingly signed contracts, agreed to film, and were compensated for their involvement. Does that give Teresa the right to insult their ideas or behaviors in a cookbook for her own financial gain? No, of course not. But the Manzo children are not innocent by-standers in the situation. They insulted Teresa plenty this season and did not seem to have any qualms about their behaviors. The children who truly did not sign up for this show are those of the Gorgas, Giudices, and Lauritas (save for Ashlee).

THOUGHTS? DO YOU THINK THERE IS HOPE FOR TERESA RECONNECTING WITH HER FAMILY AND CASTMATES? DO YOU BELIEVE CAROLINE, KATHY, AND MELISSA HAVE A GENUINE RELATIONSHIP? ARE CAROLINE’S CHILDREN INNOCENT VICTIMS OR IS SHE OVER-REACTING?

Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion from hell gave me stress-induced anxiety, like for real! I could not guzzle the wine fast enough! The rage was palpable and the ladies were down right dirty. This made RHONY’s reunion seem almost tolerable. Did I just type that?!

First of all, does anyone remember that notorious website Socialite Rank? Well, I wish we had a website devoted to Housewives Ranking, called of course, Housewives Rank, because if we did The Caroline and Teresa would be neck and neck for bottom of the heap after last night’s dreadful performance! Melissa had her moments of dirty as well, and for the most part Kathy kept her hands clean and imagined beautiful beaches and escape. Me too, Kath!

*Simple Disclaimer – I am a woman without a housewife – I play no favorites. I participate in equal opportunity snarking. All the ladies are ridiculous to a degree (yes, some more than others) and I like to spread the snark around!

Real Housewives of New Jersey fans will finally get to see Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo butt heads on tonight’s season 3 finale which was taped this Spring.

On the finale, Caroline will discover the diss not so kind words Teresa wrote about her in the Fabulicious cookbook. As we reported last week, Caroline as well as Jacqueline Laurita are no longer on speaking terms with Teresa, and we can now bring you the exact reasons!

While things reached a boiling point during the Posche Fashion Show two weeks ago when Teresa reportedly plotted to expose Melissa Gorga as a past stripper, a RHONJ insider tells us Caroline and Jacqueline had stopped talking to Teresa before that event.

The reason? The two have had it with her after seeing her true colors. “They have seen the real Teresa through this last season with Melissa. Melissa is very close with Jacqueline and Caroline,” reveals the insider.

While Joe Gorga’s screaming match with Kim D. at the Posche fashion show has been widely reported, our insider adds that Jacqueline and Teresa also got into a big fight that night. In fact the two former BFFs will be seen getting into A LOT of fights on the upcoming 4th season which is still filming at the moment.

Another reason for the tension between Caroline/Jacqueline and Teresa also has to do with Teresa’s many business ventures. Apparently, Teresa has been stepping on Jacqueline and Caroline’s toes by entering into businesses she knew they were planning to do.

“Teresa knew what Jacqueline and Caroline were working on as far as business deals and Teresa went behind their backs and copied what they were doing…. in other words she stole their ideas to make money,” said the insider. Yikes!

Our source adds that Caroline and Jacqueline are absolutely done with Teresa! “Jacqueline and Caroline think Teresa is a liar, vindictive, and so into the fame that she doesn’t care about anything anymore. Teresa will sabotage anyone to remain relevant.”

And while Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile have been diplomatic with their recent public comments about Teresa, our NJ insider reveals that she continues to remain friendless as none of her RHONJ cast members attended the party to launch her Fabellini wine on Friday night.

“None of the other women, their husbands, or children were in attendance. Not one cast member was present. She has burned every bridge she had,” says the insider. “Dina Manzo was there for less than an hour. None of Teresa’s “friends” were there. It was all family and the Bravo crew.”

Also in attendance was Teresa’s brother-in-law Pete Giudice and his wife Sheila Giudice. It has been rumored that Bravo is considering bringing Sheila on for season five.

Our insider adds that Sheila, who isn’t a fan of Teresa’s, is desperate to be on the show and has now switched her alliance from Team Melissa to Team Teresa! With the reports of Caroline and Jacqueline leaving the show after season 4, it will be interesting to see if Bravo decides to bring Sheila on.

Moving on to tonight’s finale/the 19th episode this season, below is a preview clip –

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REASONS CAROLINE & JACQUELINE ARE NO LONGER TALKING TO TERESA? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S FINALE?

UPDATE – As seen in the above preview clip, Caroline is not only ticked at what Teresa wrote about her in the cookbook but at also what Teresa wrote about her son Christopher Manzo. Below is what Teresa said about Chris via two excerpts from her cookbook -

“This is a family cookbook! Unlike some of the other “Housewives,” I do not condone young girls stripping to bring in business to a car wash, old ladies in hot pants climbing up on a pole to bring their sexy back, or videotaping yourself in any state of undress at any time. “

“That’s how it is with us Italians… We spoil our kids rotten, so much that they never want to leave home. Albie and Christopher Manzo are adorable, but don’t let them fool you. Their “L” in “GTL” (Gym-Tanning-Laundry) is “Leave it for Mom.” That’s just how it is, and how we moms like it.”


Bringing you an all new photo post of the Real Housewives of New Jersey as the cast attended the New Jersey Fashion & Beauty Week 2011 at the Pleasantdale Chateau on October 3, 2011 in West Orange, New Jersey.

As we reported days ago, Teresa Giudice was not in attendance as she is currently on the outs with the cast. Below are more photos of the RHONJ cast including Caroline Manzo, Jacqueline Laurita, Kathy Wakile and her family, plus Melissa Gorga and hubby Joe!

Meanwhile, based on the previews by Bravo for the upcoming RHONJ finale, it appears most fans will finally get to see the showdown between Caroiline and Teresa that they have been waiting for.

And of course it all has do to with Teresa taking not so subtle digs at her Caroline in her cookbook Fabulicious. We reported back in May that Teresa took some shots at her sis-in-law Melissa in the same book (Really — who takes shots at people in a cookbook?). Well apparently, Teresa didn’t end with Melissa.

In the excerpt posted below, Teresa disses Caroline’s Italian background or lack there off when she states: “I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …).” Wowzers. Below is the full excerpt from Tre’s book -

“I can’t help it. Every time I sit down to write this intro to my Italian Family Cookbook, two things keep popping into my head: that cheesy Olive Garden commercial, “When you’re here, you’re family”; and what I said about Caroline Manzo when she insulted my meatballs on the Rachael Ray show: “Caroline’s as Italian as the Olive Garden.

If you read Skinny Italian, you know I’m not a huge fan of Olive Garden because it takes traditional healthy Italian dishes and turns them into heart-clogging servings of ungodly proportions. (Forget Jersey Shore, it’s the Olive Garden that gives us Italians a bad name!) I am, however, a huge fan of Caroline Manzo. (Even if she’s only 1/16 Italian, or whatever she is …)”

With digs like that, it’s no wonder Teresa now finds herself friendless! Teresa, who apparently sees herself as a victim, also took to her Bravo blog this week to fire back at her costars, mostly Jacqueline who called her “scum” during a recent twitter rant.

Below is an excerpt from Tre’s blog -

“As for the craziness on Twitter, I don’t think it’s a very healthy place to be right now (I just can’t take anyone who’s suddenly friends again with Kim G. seriously, sorry!), so I’m going to slowly slip out of it, and maybe take a little break for a while. I have a big project I have to work on, and I want to spend every other second with my family. Don’t worry, I’ll be back!”

Teresa has yet to begin that twitter break as she has been tweeting up a storm since she posted that blog. Even more interesting, a source told UsWeekly that Teresa has a “ghostwriter” for her Bravo blogs!

Below is another excerpt from Tre’s blog about her costars from the most recent episode of the show -

“I will say I didn’t like everything they showed of course. 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. That’s why you see me dancing around and trying to have fun in Punta Cana. It’s not until I watch the shows that I see all four of the other ladies having a go at me. On the show, I might talk about a certain incident and how I felt about it, but I don’t talk about personalities or their kids or how they spend their money, or how smart I think they are… I say, “She pissed me off, but I’m not going to let it bother me.” Cut to everyone else: “Teresa can’t be reasoned with, Teresa was dropped on her head as a baby,” all about my “character flaws” and how I didn’t “grow up,” how I’m “cuckoo.” I had no idea they were bashing me like that. Although, tell you the truth, even if I did, I wouldn’t do it back. I’m just not like that. It’s not fun to watch though.”

The drama never ends! More photos from the NJ Fashion & Beauty Event below!

The never ending drama involving the Real Housewives of New Jersey rages on off camera.

The latest is a new report by Huffington Post columnist Rob Shuter which states Bravo is planning on firing both Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita once filming ends on the 4th season. Err didn’t Jacqueline quit already?

According to the report, the network is tired of the ladies and their lack of drama! “Jacqueline and Caroline were told months ago that they wouldn’t be returning for a fifth Season if they didn’t bring the drama,” a network insider reveals. “This season has been dominated by Melissa [Gorga] and Teresa [Giudice] drama and season four, that they are filming right now, is going to be no different.”

The source adds that the Caroline — aka the voice of reason — has refused to get overly dramatic on the new season. And as for Jacqueline, she is in need of a storyline on season 4 after daughter Ashley Holmes decided to move to L.A. and is no longer filming.

“Producers have been showing all the ladies private footage of what they have all been saying behind each others’ backs hoping to bring Jacqueline and Caroline into the drama,” an insider says. “But so far, they have kept their cool on camera and saved the drama for Twitter, not TV.”

Hours after the Huffington Post story came out, the Bravo network released a carefully worded statement which pretty much only confirmed Jacqueline and Caroline would be returning for season 4. Below is Bravo’s statement on the issue -

“Bravo is not firing anyone from The Real Housewives of New Jersey. This is completely inaccurate from sources who are unreliable and making up rumors. All five cast members will be featured on season four. No decisions have been made about season five at this time.”

While Caroline’s return might still be up in the air, it’s pretty much all but certain that Jacqueline is dunzo after season 4. As we reported, Jacqueline made good on her threat last week by choosing to skip the reunion — a major no-no. A report by the Hollywood Reporter is now stating that decision by Jacqueline has landed her in hot water with Bravo.

A source tells THR that Jacqueline “is currently waiting to see how Bravo will penalize her for skipping the Season 3 reunion and not fulfilling her contract.”

In fact, the Huffington Post adds that Bravo even sent for Jacqueline on the day of the reunion taping. “Jacqueline refused to come out of her house the day of the reunion taping,” states an insider. “Bravo’s car sat in the driveway all day and she just refused to leave her home even if it meant she was violating her contract.”

Even worse for Jacqueline, she is also in trouble with the network over her tweets about Teresa from the weekend. If you recall, Jacqueline called Teresa “scum” during a twitter rant. “She revealed a significant amount of a plot line [that] has not yet aired,” a Bravo insider told the New York Daily News. Bravo “is not happy — even if she was upset,” says the source. “There are rules. She knows that.”

It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. In the meantime, Teresa Giudice continues to be on the outs with her castmates. A week after sources confirmed to Reality Tea that she was indeed in on the set-up to try to expose Melissa Gorga as a past stripper (she was never a stripper), Teresa was absent from the NJ Fashion and Beauty event that took place Monday night. In attendance were all of her costars.

Our RHONJ source, who also attended the event, tells us the remainder of the cast is no longer on speaking terms with Tre. “None of the cast is even speaking to her, including her brother,” says our insider. “Everyone seems to know that Teresa was totally behind the whole thing. Funny thing is, she looks like the bad guy! Everyone is laughing about just how desperate she is to sabotage Melissa.”

Our source also adds that Teresa, who is planning a launch party for her Fabellini wine on October 7, is now struggling to find guests who will show up as none of her castmates are planning to attend the event. “She is telling everyone she ever remotely knows since she lost all her friends,” says our source adding that guests are being encouraged to “bring a friend or 2″ as “she needs people there for the filming.”

Below is the cheap cheesy invite to Teresa’s event as provided to us by our insider.

For the time being, the RHONJ cast has three weeks of filming left for season 4. No word yet on when Bravo plans to air the new season.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SHOULD BRAVO FIRE CAROLINE AND JACQUELINE? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR A ‘FRIENDLESS’ TERESA?

None of the cast is even speaking to her, including her brother. The ladies all looked beautiful and were having a great time together. Jonathan Cheban was also there with the ladies. He tweeted a funny picture with Melissa pretending to throw dollar bills at her. Everyone seems to know that Teresa was totally behind the whole thing. Funny thing is, she looks like the bad guy! Everyone is laughing about just how desperate she is to sabotage Melissa.

A ton of Real Housewives of New Jersey news to report today so let’s begin with the 4th season of the hit show!

Yes, filming on the RHONJ season 4 has already began! In fact, it began weeks ago. This is pretty surprising as to my knowledge, Bravo has never filmed a new season of a Real Housewives series while the previous season was still on the air.

It is likely this is being done due to the extremely high ratings and the network doesn’t want to wait an entire year to push out a new season. There are also rumblings Bravo did this to capture Teresa Giudice’s bankruptcy fraud trial which was originally scheduled for mid July. As we reported, that trial has now been postponed to October 13. I am also hearing Bravo is planning to debut the new season this fall. Wowzers.

Meanwhile Perez Hilton recently reported the producers behind the show put out an ad looking for new housewives. I can however confirm all of the current five housewives have been filming so it’s likely Bravo is just looking to add an extra housewife to the mix.

In other news, after receiving backlash for the awful things her husband Joe Giudice said about Melissa Gorga on the most recent episode of the show, Teresa is now blaming editing for Joe’s actions claiming he wasn’t trashing Melissa. While the Gorgas visited the Giudices for Christmas, all seemed to be going well until Joe decided to unleash some not so nice words about Melissa who was nearby but couldn’t hear. Bravo captioned Joe’s words on screen and below is the transcript of Joe’s exact words -

  • “I don’t give a sh*t about her”
  • “She’s a friggin’ animal”
  • “They’re f*cking animals”
  • “Who the hell would want to be that friggin’ racoon face over there? She’s a witch”

In Teresa’s latest blog on Celebuzz, she claims Joe wasn’t talking about Melissa but rather one of Melissa’s sisters – Lysa Simpson – and that Bravo simply edited it to make it appear he was trashing Melissa. “At my Christmas Eve party, sitting in his own house with his own brother-in-law, Joe was talking about Lysa NOT Melissa,” wrote Teresa. But how can Joe be talking about Lysa when he used the words “over there” to describe the person he was trashing? Need more proof? Below is a screen shot from the episode.

Perhaps Melissa’s sister was lurking in the room somewhere in Teresa’s home and went undetected by everyone including Bravo’s cameras. Even more interesting are the number of negative comments on Teresa’s Celebuzz blog. As you all know, Bravo has a policy of not posting the very negative comments on the housewives’ blogs on the Bravotv website.

Also interesting is the fact that those “f*cking animals” are not the ones going on trial for bankruptcy fraud, being arrested for DUIs, or facing 10 years in prison.

And finally, the most recent episode of the RHONJ featuring the smackdown of Kim Granatell was the highest rated episode of the season! Over 2.9 million viewers tuned in to see the Manzos take down the sh*t stirring Kim G. Sunday’s episode was up 15 percent among total viewers compared to the previous week’s episode.
