The first viewer question asks why Melissa loved Rosie and Kathy last season when they stood up for her, but this season she’s dropping them. “I’m not dropping them. I feel like we have grown apart, I’m not gonna lie about that. They actually stopped calling me to start that off. Sometimes people just grow apart and we didn’t have a big fight. I love them very much – they’re like family – they ARE family to us. I feel like what goes on between them and Teresa runs deep down the line. Like before I was even around, generations.
Melissa Gorga has been struggling all season to find a way to keep her family and her business endeavors in balance. She shares in her latest blog that they’re still in a work in progress.
She starts off, “Watching these last two episodes you really get to see the struggle Joe and I have been going through balancing both work and family life. Our babies are now all in school and are growing up so fast.”
Jacqueline Laurita has discovered a new way to drunk rant – is this good or bad? She recently posted two videos answering viewer questions about her life, the show, and all things in between. Interestingly, Jacqueline ignored most of the questions about Teresa Giudice (she was asked over and over again where they currently stand) but she did address her situation with Dina Manzo, drop hints about the reunion, dish on almost landing a spinoff, and more.
Jacqueline is preparing for the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion, which films next month. Jacqueline predicts it’ll “be a good one” and “extremely eventful,” adding, “I think it’s gonna be pretty intense.”
A few months ago, I would have never imagined that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga would peacefully come together for a family gathering. Times have really changed though!
Both the Gorgas and the Giudices celebrated the birthday of Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father, Giacinto Gorga, and Gino Gorga in one big happy family celebration. All of the adorable Giudice girls – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana – were present, hamming it up for the cameras, and the Gorga kids – Antonia, Gino, and Joey – were as cute and demure and darling as always.
Caroline weighs in on the Teresa and Kathy/Rosie situation: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So I’d like Teresa to open up her heart and just understand that people make mistakes and say bad things they don’t mean sometimes and I think it’s time she kind of grows up and accepts them back.”
The newbie shared that watching the episode was a hard reminder of losing her beloved Boo. “Losing Boo was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through. He really was my best friend. Even though he couldn’t talk to me, I know without a doubt that he “got” me. Through thick and thin, Boo was by my side and always brought me such comfort. He was my protector and according to my girlfriends, the only “man” I ever trusted. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss Boo terribly, but I know that he’s always with me in spirit.”
