Of course Jim seems to court the publicity and love the controversy. Jim and his wife Amber Marchese, who are at the center of nearly every controversy this season, give their feedback on the show – and warns all us devoted and adoring viewers that not only does he make the show, but the Florida episode, which begins tonight, is out of control!
Jim shares [sarcastically] that the amazing amount of love he receives is the best part of being on TV. While Amber takes a more somber approach about the difficulties of being on RHONJ “I guess it didn’t sink in how much drama it would really be. How much fighting, and arguing,” she admits. “I guess you get girls together, and we’re around each other all the time, it’s gonna happen, but it didn’t sink in.”
According to sources before cameras started rolling the twins made a pact with Dina that they would not mention her tempestuous (and estranged) relationship with Caroline Manzo, if Dina promised to have their backs!
Despite Dina stating that she did not believe that Teressssssa’s husband Rino slept with her mother no matter what Victoria Gotti said, and despite Dina telling Teressssa that the rumor was being spread, the twins are still accusing Dina of breaking the pact – and they might be out for revenge!
“Man is made of such a seemly shape, that friend or foe is not discerned by face; then hard it is the wickeds’ wiles to scape, since that the bad to mask with honest grace.” – Geoffrey Whitney
Amber continued, “If Whitney could reach into my soul and pull out exactly what is there, he would have used these words. I don’t know who to trust – who is my friend, who is my enemy, what are everyone’s intentions? This is a truly awful feeling that, clearly, many have felt throughout history based on so many literary works on the subject. What is the driving force behind our actions? How do we come to our perceptions of situations? It all can be profoundly attributed to the interactions between genetics, social factors, and environment. We take from our experience good attributes as well as negative attributes such as, weakness, insecurity, jealous, hatred, and even a lack of empathy.”
Teresa hasn’t blogged lately… but she has a few things to say this week!
“This blog is way overdue and only because of one reason. I have been totally disgusted with what Victoria, Teresa Giudice, and Amber have brought to this show,” said Teresa. “That repulsive episode of lies brought my parents, my son, and my nephews a lot of pain. And it did not stop there. Jim Marchese took it further and continued to spew these lies all over the media. What kind of a man would go after mothers and children?”
Sweet little Audriana Giudice celebrated her fifth birthday on Sunday. And Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice shared the above picture of the birthday girl, adding, “Happy 5TH Birthday to my Princess AUDRIANA!” See more pictures of Audriana‘s big day, which included a trip to FAO Schwarz and a yummy looking dessert in New York City and a Frozen-themed birthday party with family at home, below.
By no means am I Giudice supporter, but I have to admit that the pictures tug at my heart strings. I cannot help but to wonder if Teresa and Joe Giudice will be able to celebrate Audriana‘s sixth birthday with her… Milania‘s 9th birthday… Gabriella‘s 10th birthday… Gia‘s 14th birthday… In my opinion, Teresa and Joe absolutely need to serve time for their plethora of crimes, but that does not mean I don’t feel for their four girls.
Still, Melissa took to her blog to share her thoughts on the episode, starting with the 9,000-square-foot home Joe Gorga plans to build. “A Joe Gorga house is impeccable,” Joe said on RHONJ. “When you open up those history books and you look in Rome, that’s what I build. I just have that gift. I’m the Michelangelo of New Jersey of building homes.” History books? I think he meant Beaver Habitats For Dummies.
