Noticeably missing from the reaction shots were Dina Manzo, Melissa Gorga, and Joe Gorga. Melissa took to her blog to explain why she didn’t let cameras into her home that day and throw a little shade at those who did.
Addressing the fans of the show, Melissa said, “We’ve been through so much together throughout the years. It’s not always easy being on reality TV. I’m not complaining, because obviously I signed up for it, but there are times I wish I could turn it on and off. Unfortunately I don’t have that option, so here we are.”
The two have been sparring for a while but they really got into it at the RHONJ reunion. And then Dina and Jim really, really got into it on twitter! It got so intense that Dina has stated she will not return to the show.
The latest drama started when Jim started making accusations bout Dina’s charity Project Ladybug.
After Teresa was sentenced and all the bigwigs sat around wondering what to do now, I was like, “Um, FIRE HER?!?” I mean, seriously! I was not shocked, however, to learn that a pink slip wasn’t on the list of options.
Lordy the saga that of felonious Teresa Giudice never ends! This morning Teresa’s crisis PR representative Wendy Feldman fired her because Teresa refused to follow her advice, and allegedly took it upon herself to write a letter to the judge begging for a prison assignment at Danbury Federal Prison in Connecticut. And even worse – Teresa is now attempting to serve the bulk of her sentence in a halfway house under a seldom used Second Chance Act!
First Teresa’a attorney sent a letter to Judge Salas requesting clarification of the judge’s “language” during sentencing, explaining that it wasn’t explicitly clear if she was recommending a prison camp or detention center.
Oh Teresa Giudice… remember when you promised to be a better person? And to learn from your mistakes through this whole legal tribulation? Well, ummm… we’re still waiting! Teresa has parted ways with her crisis PR manager Wendy Feldman after she submitted a letter to Judge Salas requesting Danbury Federal Prison to serve her 15 months.
“Sadly, my time with Teresa and has come to an end,” Wendy said in a statement. “My client relationships are very important to me, however today’s filing regarding Teresa’s Bureau of Prisons designation request was not done with my knowledge or input.”
According to Wendy the Real Housewives Of New Jersey star worked with someone else – Juicy?! – to submit a letter to the judge asking that she be placed at Danbury in Connecticut, where Piper Kerman the author of Orange Is The New Black served her time. Good lord – Teresa probably thinks of herself as the new Piper!
Victoria’s rep Steve Honig reached out to share that she did NOT get paid for her guest appearance on the show. “Victoria did not get paid for her appearance on RHONJ, so she didn’t do anything for money. ” He continued, “And as far as her being a liar, well, we have a polygraph test that says otherwise.”
It turns out when Kim told Poison Gorga she runs with the big the boys, she wasn’t lying – her man is New Jersey’s infamous “King of Con” Thomas Giacomaro! Thomas just got out of prison after serving time for bilking investors out of $73 million dollars! And now he’s ready for the next phase: working on a book, movie deal and television show about his legendary life. “Hundreds of millions of dollars went through my hands,” Thomas bragged. “It makes ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ look like he stole a pocketbook.”
I don’t mean to be negative but compared to previous seasons this one was kind of weak sauce, no? I mean, Fabellini has more sparkle than last night’s finale did. And dare I say it, it’s far less tacky!
Really – what could possibly be more tacky than having your boobs, butt, and midriff hangout at a charity fashion show for children with cancer?! Oh wait – trying to start a fight at one… while your boobs threaten to pop out of your Posche clearance special gown! When you get a reputation for running out of stores without paying for the clothes, I suppose you get stuck with the Posche end of the season leftover sale! Pass the Dunkin’ Donuts – the twins and their DDs are out to play.
