Well, it seems that it's not just the Fresco Italian restaurant in Montclair, New Jersey that is disappointing members of the community for allowing Bravo to use it to film scenes for Real Housewives of New Jersey. Local fans of the show were also disappointed…not in the eatery, but in the women dining inside.
Last week, the restaurant posted (and then promptly deleted after negative feedback) some pictures of Dina Manzo and Teresa Giudice eating at Fresco surrounded by lights and cameras. Fans who were able to catch the Facebook status before it was taken down rushed to the restaurant in hopes of seeing their favorite RHONJ ladies. You see where I'm going with this, right?
There's a rumor circulating that Kathy Wakile's cannoli-pimping enterprise is about to go bust!
Now that she's been reportedly downgraded on Real Housewives of New Jersey, rumors surfaced, saying her soon to be published dessert cookbook Indulge is being dropped by publishers because she won't be able to promote it through the show!
Rumor Fix shares that this is one rumor that is untrue. It's an interesting rumor considering Kathy's book is currently available for pre-order on Amazon with a prospective release date of September 2014.
Well, we all know that Real Housewives of New Jersey can be slightly, um, polarizing, right? In general, I think fans have the strongest feelings for this group of women, whether they are loyal to the core fans or staunch haters. The ladies of the Garden State can certainly bring out the emotion in their viewers!
That was made abundantly clear recently when a local restaurant allowed Bravo to film scenes for the show. The Fresco Montclair was hoping that posting photos of filming on its Facebook page would bring with it some publicity…and boy did it!
Tonight Melissa shared the above photo and it's glaringly obvious that she's done something to her face because she's almost unrecognizable. My guess is fillers/Botox since she looked like her old self just one week ago. She's super puffy in the lips and up by her cheek bones and eyes, it's especially noticeable near her right eye.
Melissa wrote, "Skin was feeling dry today.. @drkassir suggests using a physical sunscreen to prevent sun damage even in winter months and a moisturizer/antioxidant to nourish your skin in dry winter months. He has the best products!"
Unless she's having a terrible allergic reaction, this is more than just a little sunscreen.
Reality TV stars and legal issues are like siamese twins! This year several stars dealt with legal problems from bankruptcies and foreclosures to lawsuits and arrests.
Without a doubt Real Housewives of New Jersey stars take the crown when it comes to most time spent in court – like a lot, a lot. But the ladies of Real Housewives of Orange County are not far behind them! Of course it wasn't just the Housewives who were getting hauled to court or busted by the IRS or mugshotted; several other shows represented well and held their own!
Below is the 2013 legal round up.
Above, Jenelle Evans confuses a jail cell with a spa and thinks it's a place you visit periodically to get away from it all! The Teen Mom 2 star, whose antics practically caused a cancelation for the show, racked up a whopping FIVE mugshots this year! #CheckMyCharges #GoogleMyMugshots
Twins Nicole and Teresa Napolitano have joined the cast. Unfortunately reports say the constant cat fighting lobbed at them by Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga is proving to be too much and they're already ready to quit!
Go figure that once Teresa and Melissa team up they get unbelievably crazy. This weekend the twins along with their friend (and new Friend of the Housewives) Amber Marchese got into with Melissa during a cast trip to Atlantic City.
