In their interview, none of the cast members mention Victoria Gotti specifically and they keep referring to Jim as the one to blame for the affair rumor. Teresa and Rino adamantly deny the affair accusation and snipe, “People do things for money. When you’re a has-been, you do anything to put your name in the spotlight and get on TV.” We’re not sure if Teresa means Victoria or Jim here.
On a related note, Amy recently shared her favorite Real Housewives moment, the RHOC trip to British Columbia. “All of the women were dressed head-to-toe in their best winter apparel and strapped into their downhill skis, ready to hit the slopes when Lauri decided to accuse Vicki of having sex with multiple partners,” recalled Amy. “This public display of crazy was a gift from the heavens.”
“Have you ever heard of an empath? Well I am one of the many roaming the earth; I absorb feelings and emotions around me, and let me tell you, the range of emotions in this Boca house was off the charts,” explains Dina.
Last night Hurricane Jim hit the shores of Florida (well Boca anyway) and he destroyed all Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars in his wake. Teresa Giudice must have had advance notice that dirty secrets were going to be strewn far and wide which is why she stayed home to color pitchurs, mispronounce her own last name, and respond to texes.
Things started out innocently enough. The Florida division of the RHONJ ladies went swampin’ in their most appropriate of appropriate boat shoes: high heels. Those twins – they sure know how to work a look. #sarcasm On the gator farm, Dina Manzo meets her future pet soulmate: a tailless baby alligator whom she smuggles into her purse and clutches for zen-renity (zen serenity) throughout the night’s escapades.
It is well known that Dina is psychic she feels something is about to rock this boat. And Dina has a little inkling its last name is “Marchese” and it has to do with this little secret she was tasked with guarding and protecting. As the group was about to find out, the gators were the least dangerous thing they were to encounter in Florida.
Last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live was slipped in on the end of the new Real Housewives of New Jersey episode – the one we all thought would be 90 minutes. Annoying. But anyway! Jacqueline Laurita was on along with Rita Wilson and it was a pretty low-key episode. Jacqueline shared some updates on Nick and says he’s doing good and progressing well. The only thing Jacs shared about the show in general was her friendship status with Teresa Giudice.
When Andy asked Jacs how she felt hearing/seeing Teresa saying that she could no longer trust her, she replied, “It wasn’t a surprise because I think I figured it out after we were done taping and we didn’t hang out afterwards. We both had agreed in Arizona that we were going to put our difference aside and we had a choice to either move on with the friendship or we leave it as acquaintances or whatever. We made a pact that we were going to move forward in the friendship and rebuild that and I kept my end and she didn’t.”
Jacqueline, who together with her husband Chris Laurita, filed for bankruptcy via their company Signature Apparel Group in 2009 but creditors accused them of knowingly defrauding creditors while spending a whole buncha so-called company money on themselves. As a result they were sued for $7.8 million dollars. According to reports the couple has now settled the lawsuit to their bankruptcy creditors and if approved by a judge their bankruptcy is over!
Court documents stipulate that Jacqueline, Chris, and a few other siblings including Chris’ brother Joseph, “agree to pay the total gross sum of One Million Dollars ($1,000,000.00)” to the plaintiff.
