You didn't really think that Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice would actually get along on the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, did you? As much as these two preach family and forgiveness, it's hard to get past stripper allegations and the desire for siblings to value blood over marriage. You know how it is.
With the fifth season of the Bravo hit right around the corner, the women are flocking to whatever media outlet that will listen to air their dirty bedazzled laundry while at the same time claiming to be in a "better place." Sure.
As if you don't already know these ladies better than some of your family members, Bravo always likes to update the women's bios with all things bright and happy. There is nary a mention of Posche fashion shows or strippers or a cousin Rosie meltdown. You've got to love Bravo's positive spin! In anticipation of the new season, let's re-introduce ourselves to the Jersey girls, shall we?
For all of you hoping for a newer, classier, gentler Real Housewives of New Jersey, it ain't gonna happen! Apparently following last year's reunion and an off-season of being accused of things she didn't do, Teresa Giudice intends to make this season her act of vengeance!
Teresa has been watching V For Vendetta (or Days Of Our Lives) and practicing her wordsmithing so she can really go to battle against her family and former friends, who she believes have trashed her and dragged her through the mud unnecessarily.
“Teresa is not going to take any shit from her family members!" a source tells RadarOnline. "She felt like everyone ganged up on her last season and she has been dishing it out herself so far this season.” Oh god… I really do need to watch this show under the influence of sedatives, because I'm not sure I can take it.
Oh good lord – it's as if the reality TV gods realized all had been quiet on the Real Housewives of New Jersey front because now comes swirling rumors of a casting shakeup.
Now bear in mind these rumors come from RadarWrong-line so they may or may not be true, but here comes an exclusive report detailing who's in and who's out for season 5.
The most surprising news regardsTeresa Giudice. Now regardless of whether you like Teresa or not Bravo knows she brings ratings and controversy – she's basically been the plot and main character of this show for two seasons now. Apparently Joe Giudice's legal problems have become the make or break item that determines if Teresa will return – or if she'll be getting a spinoff!
Tonight, dear readers, you're in for a treat – it's the motherload of Real Housewives of New Jersey posts! We've got it all, but most of all we've got salacious and gory EXCLUSIVES about whose living a lie on national TV. That would be all of them. Oh, we've also got more Caroline Manzo acting like a bulldog. It wouldn't be RHONJ without that!
First up, last week Melissa Gorga hosted a beautiful birthday party for her daughter Antonia. We all saw Melissa getting beautified for a six-year-old's birthday party and then strapping on her best hoochie heels. Melissa admitted that her daughter's parties are always a "lavish" affair.
Are they lavish enough for Kennedy Caroline Armstrong? Likely not. Watching from home, you know Kennedy was thinking "That bitch can't touch me. I had a mother effing horse."
Anyway, our source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Melissa only throws parties for her daughter and that her Joe Gorga's parents weren't even invited to the party! Is that because it wasn't anywhere near Antonia's real birthday?
"Antonia's party was just for the cameras," our source shares. "Melissa never throws her kids big parties. Her boys have never even had a birthday party. The baby had no 1st birthday and no 2nd birthday party! Not even cake at the house," our source assures us.

Jacqueline Laurita has a hard time keeping her comments to herself on Twitter and in light of that insiders are claiming Bravo has given her the boot for sitting out the reunion and spilling details about the just completed Season 4 of Real Housewives of New Jersey!
AllAboutTRH recently got the details from an insider who claims Jacqueline “violated her contract” by refusing to attend the Season 3 reunion! The source (who purports to be an insider very close to production) goes onto add, “Jacqueline won’t be returning to season 5 because she violated her contract and Bravo doesn’t trust her anymore. Her contract is now terminated.”
Apparently, Caroline Manzo is on the fence about a return to the show. “Caroline will possibly be on season 5 and she can’t stand Melissa Gorga! They rarely speak only when it’s regarding the show and have only seen each other at Albie, Greg, and Chris’s apartment a few weeks ago.” Wait — is this trouble in made for TV fauxship paradise I’m hearing of? You mean Caroline and Melissa weren’t true friends? You don’t say!
After the report came out, Caroline did manage to tweet Melissa wishing her a happy and safe trip to Miami where Melissa will be hosting a New Year’s Eve party alongside her husband, Joe Gorga!
So, who will Bravo be bringing back for Season 5? According to the AAT’s source — everyone’s favorite feuding family! “No one has been signed for Season 5 but Teresa [Giudice], Kathy [Wakile], and Melissa will be in it for sure.”
Bravo is also looking to add three new Housewives to the line up and some of the rumored additions are Teresa’s other sister-in-law (this one actually likes her, I think), Sheila Giudice and Heather Robinsonthe wife of NJ Nets player Clifford Robinson.
Heather is considered a friend of Kathy’s and the two have been tweeting back and forth a lot lately. Heather was also reportedly present at the party Melissa and Kathy attended with Sherri Shepherd where Melissa allegedly got into a verbal altercation with her stylist!
Moving right along Teresa may have received some unfortunate news regarding Joe Giudice‘s indictment, but she didn’t let it dampen her spirit! Teresa posted some family photos on her website and updated fans about Christmas. She also posted a non-Christmas themed photo of her four daughters.
“I wanted to share one more picture from our Christmas card shoot this year. I LOVE the pictures so much, but I don’t want to have Christmas scenes hanging in my house all year, so the photographer Linda Marie always makes me a non-holiday shot I can use,” Teresa said. The non-holiday photo is below!
“We had a wonderful Christmas. Everyone was at my house on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day this year! Over 20 people and tons of food. We did fish on Christmas Eve, and then lamb and hot peppers and pasta yesterday. The girls are off school this week — so excited to just hang out with them,” Teresa continued.
Not included in the Christmas Eve gathering? Joe and Melissa! “I did invite my brother and his family of course, my house is always open to them. xx,” Teresa shared. Present at the holiday feast instead were members of the Giudice family along with Teresa’s parents. Photos of Teresa’s family Christmas are below! The food looks amazing!
Joe and Melissa spent the holidays with Melissa’s family. Melissa’s sister posted a photo of Joe on the Marco Sisters Twitter page. The same photo was also posted on their Facebook page under the heading: “Merry Christmas!!!! We’re all together and that all that matters!!!” Joe confirmed via Twitter that he spent his holiday with Melissa’s family.
