It all started when Amber Marchese made a comment about Nicole allegedly breaking up a marriage, which Melissa Gorga repeated… to Nicole! Of course some hair pulling and back stabbing occurred. But this week, Amber and Nicole finally made peace and it seemed like things were moving forward in a positive direction. Or will they?
“It was great to finally get an apology. Going back to that night and remembering how I felt, it was a really good feeling to forgive and let go. I truly feel what I said in my interview: ‘Bitterness is leprosy to the soul,'” Nicole recalls. “At this point weeks had gone on with a lot of hurt , lies, and deceit, and with all the anger that I had towards Amber also came deep hurt.”
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star recently accepted an Ice Bucket Challenge and posted a fun video of herself getting doused on instagram. Teresa states that not only is she getting what few precious brain cells she has frozen, but she’s also writing a check for a good cause. Hopefully it won’t bounce!
Updated: Tom was misquoted by Radar. He nor his source claimed the $850K salary figure for Jacqueline Laurita. And his source shared that all the ladies are reportedly making around $750, excluding the new Housewives.
Today’s Wishful Thinking award goes to Jacqueline Laurita. Who also gets a mention for encouraging us to believe the unbelievable. Nice try!
A report emerged today that claims Jacqueline, who is rumored to be returning to Real Housewives Of New Jersey next season as a full-fledged Housewife, will be earning an $850,000 salary. Which would make her one of the highest paid Housewives in the franchise history – almost as highly paid as the (allegedly) million-dollar earning NeNe Leakes!
So Poison is in the garbage business. It’s not the type of garbage business you might think – like producing garbage songs for a wife who can’t sing or calling his sister garbage on national TV, but he actually bought some big garbage truck to recycle documents. Melissa wants to give the truck a makeover so it stands out and they get more attention for their business. Melissa suggests putting wings on the truck. And the slogan, “Going green gives you wings.” First of all, she stole that from RedBull. Second of all, I don’t know why she didn’t just glue some Melissa Gorga jewelry on it and blast “On Display” from the speakers while it cruises around town. Better yet, old J. Faux could dance on top of the truck! Third of all, what does the leasing agent from a car dealership have to do with Joe’s trash business?
In a statement from Patterson’s spokesperson, he reiterates that the judge adjourned the eviction case because Joe had failed to register the Montville mansion as a rental. Kai says that Joe claimed in court that he had a friend at the zoning office who told him he didn’t have to register it, but Kai says Joe couldn’t remember that “friend’s” name when the judge asked for a name.
Patterson then blasts them, claiming the reason they didn’t register the home as a rental is because they didn’t want anyone to know that the mansion hadn’t actually sold for the full asking price. In Melissa’s defense, the house was being sold at $3.8 million, just not all at once in a ‘conventional’ type sale… “In August of 2013 when the Gorgas and Mr. Patterson executed the purchase and rental agreements, the Gorgas told the media they had sold their home for the full asking price, but never represented there was a rental agreement that also was also part of the purchase agreement. After falsely represented the home was sold, Joe and Melissa Gorga did not register the home as a rental property because it would have immediately exposed their home was also being leased under the purchase agreement.”
Jacqueline Laurita is returning – briefly – at the end of this season when filming resumes to capture Teresa Giudice‘s sentencing drama. Jacqueline revealed that she’ll actually just be filming to support season extra Kathy Wakile‘s newest dessert launch, but rumor has it the real reason producers pulled Jacqueline in was in the hopes of a showdown with Dina!
Jacqueline has also remained friendly with Teresa after the two made amends last season, so presumably they were hoping both Dina and Jacqueline could film together in support of their friend as she deals with her sentencing news. Well – Dina was not havin’ any of that! What’s that zen you speak of? More like ignore what you don’t want to see! The usual.
