To start, Dina talked Project Ladybug and Childhood Cancer Awareness month.
“PERFECT TIMING! I love how this episode has a Project Ladybug focus. Did you know that September is Childhood Cancer awareness month? Yeah, not many people know that, for some CRAZY reason it’s not as prevalent as other awareness months,” shared Dina. “I need a favor, whoever is reading this, if you can post that on your social media sites, I’ll love you forever.”
Teresa and Joe ended up pleading to 4 and 5 counts respectively with Teresa possibly serving up to 27 months in prison. Their sentencing was just delayed again until October 2nd. This is really going to mess up Bravo’s filming plans isn’t it? They’re hoping to capture Teresa and Joe’s sentencing for the season finale, of course.
She may have gotten downgraded to a “friend” of the housewives of this season (maybe on the Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s being relegated to a “relative” of the housewives!), but Kathy Wakile is using her free time constructively. Kathy has finally penned her first cookbook regaling her love of dessert making. Her cannoli kits have even been featured on RHONJ.
Maybe it’s because she’s sweeter than her co-stars (bad pun!), but Kathy is excited to feature her in bite-sized bits of deliciousness in“Indulge: Delicious Little Desserts that Keep Life Real Sweet” (St. Martin’s Griffin, $26.99), and she’s not even trying to compete with another cast member/friend/relative who is also delving into the dessert realm after building her food empire. Table flipping anyone?
The second half of the new season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is going to be an explosive one! Shocking, right? This afternoon Bravo released a mid-season trailer to get fans excited about the upcoming episodes and it doesn’t disappoint.
First, we have the return of Jacqueline Laurita. Jacqueline will be there for Teresa Giudice as she faces the outcome and repercussions of pleading guilty to fraud in Federal Court and also to share more about her family’s journey with autism and the struggles (and triumphs) that accompany it.
Teresa deals with the aftermath of pleading guilty and her potential sentencing and also contemplates sending the Giudice head of household, aka Milania, off to boarding school. She’s kidding. We think.
Twin sisters and cast newbies Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea are understandably upset over the accusations made about their mother Santa having an affair with son-in-law Rino Aprea on the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Santa is so angry that she may file suit against…Jim Marchese? Color us confused, but were we watching the same episode? The one where VICTORIA GOTTI told the tale of Rino and Santa’s fling? And shared that it came straight from Rino himself?
The twins went to Us Weekly to share their tale of woe. And Us Weekly apparently did not see the show and claimed in their article that Jim is the one who relayed the gossip to us viewers. (photo above is of the moment Amber and Teresa hear the rumor from Victoria Gotti) Maybe Jim should sue Us Weekly for their error and besmirching his reputation! UNLESS the ladies/Us Weekly are claiming Jim starts spreading the story in upcoming episodes, but still, it didn’t originate with him.
Joe andMelissa Gorga have been trying to stop the financial bleed that is their former mansion by booting Kai from the premises for nonpayment of rent. The Gorgas have been struggling financially as they have to continue paying mortgage payments on their Montville home, plus the rental costs at their current home in Franklin Lakes, plus paying for attorneys (three so far) and most likely forking over for major repairs to the mansion.
Kai shared a statement this afternoon after the judge ruled – and it sounds like the final ruling was in his favor.
