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.
Teresa Giudice and husband Joe took a little time away from hanging with this daughters this holiday season to do a little product promotion.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey stars got their hustle on yesterday at an autograph signing event in NJ. Teresa was celebrating her new Fabellini that is being produced and imported from Italy. She shared on Twitter, "Joe and I on our way to Bayway Liquors 639 Bayway Ave. in Elizabeth for the new Fabellini imported from Italy. Who is coming?". Plenty of fans did show up – and even Joe got in on the posing for photographs with fans.
The show is currently filming its new season, but it didn't look like cameras were on hand to film. I'm going to assume that they're taking a week or so off for the holidays.
If you look through the gallery, Teresa's jacket has the Fabellini name and logo blinged out on the back of it. New clothing line coming to an episode near you?
