Plenty of people were skeptical over Melissa Gorga‘s latest business venture last season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. When the reality star opened up a clothing boutique with a partner, many stories circulated that Melissa was just the “face” of the store and not the actual owner. Turns out that might be somewhat true, at least according to Kim D. Melissa’s business partner packed up the store and is now selling off the inventory at Posche Thursday night!
Our source shared, “Melissa’s store, which was really never her store, is closed down!! All of the merchandise is out. Nothing is left but the fixtures! The real owner, Jackie Robinson, took everything.” Our source adds, “The store was always just a storyline for Melissa. She wasn’t the real owner. It was never about her having a career. It was just for the show! Melissa would have had zero storyline with the store. Same like the singing, the book, and the jewelry line….”
Reality Tea is ranking ALL the Housewives from every season and every city! Our list is broken down into three parts with Housewives ranked from worst to ‘best’ (or best of the worst, if you will). Below is Part 1.
What makes a superior species of Housewives? Is it class? Money? Fabulous plastic surgery and good shoes? Beautiful home? A revolving door of crazy that keeps us on our cheaply-clad toes? Is it a supportive husband? An in-home zoo of fabulous miniature fluff balls clad in their own designer wardrobe? Is it a witty zinger or indispensable advice? Is it their ability to rewrite history without irony? To crack open the egg of their emotional travails in front of cameras? Or is it their ability to deftly control the scenery while cracking a Chanel whip?
Andy Cohen is playing another round of “Ask Andy.” This time the questions centered around Real Housewives reunions, and Luann de Lesseps‘ upcoming New Year’s Eve wedding to the always controversial Tom D’Agostino!
Andy will not be attending the Real Housewives Of New York star’s nuptials, but he smirks that he sees “nothing but happiness” in Luann and Tom’s future.
Ashlee is now a certified makeup artist, a new mom, and an engaged woman. Not only that, but she recently announced she has two new ventures in the works: a bridal business and a beauty blog. Considering Ashlee is engaged, she is probably doing a lot of wedding research, so it makes sense to think she is in the know when it comes to all things bride.
About her “amazing” transformation, Chris shared, “I cannot believe how much she has matured and what a great mother she is. After some of our challenges and struggles with her through the years – and a lot of people have seen that on TV – it kind of catapulted her into being an adult and a very responsible one at that. She’s very, very, very attentive with her son.”
