Melissa Gorga appeared on Good Day New York to promote her new jewelry collection. Melissa also answered questions about Teresa Giudice and Real Housewives of New Jersey. She actually spent a lot more time talking about Teresa than her jewelry, but such is life as the sister-in-law of a convicted felon.
Melissa admitted that she hasn’t visited Teresa in prison, adding, “I think she’s keeping her visits for her children.” I honestly don’t blame her. I wouldn’t visit the narcissist, either, family or not. Melissa went on to say that Teresa’s holding up “really well” despite being away from her girls. “It is obviously not easy being away from the children,” said Melissa. “I think that’s probably the hardest part.”
The casting disaster that was season six combined with the favorable response to adding Lisa Rinna and Eileen Davidson to Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has prompted producers to dig deeper (or just not troll the Dunkin’ Donuts for cast members) for season seven.
The first “big name” that leaked out is Tiki Barber‘s wife Traci Lynn Johnson. “Yes, the rumor is true,” an inside source told E! News. “Traci is down the road with the production company. She and Tiki moved to NJ a few years ago. They are next door neighbors with Snooki.”
Melissa‘s hairstylist, Julius Michael, rescued two Pomeranian puppies from a “horrible lady” at the airport last week. The 11-week-old puppies were in bad shape when he found them. Julius kept one puppy, sharing, “I rescued him and have been nursing him to health for the past few days and today I finally got him on film climbing the fence to get out into the rest of the house. He’s making a full recovery.” Melissa adopted the other puppy. See photos below!
No one at Bravo is discussing the future of Real Housewives Of New Jersey, which remains in limbo while Teresa Giudice completes her 15-month prison sentence. Despite the uncertainty where Teresa is concerned, producers are “quietly” putting plans in motion for a seventh season and looking to bring celebrity names into the mix by possibly adding Tiki Barber‘s scandal-plagued wife Traci Lynn Johnson!
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is speaking out to deny he is being unfaithful while his wife goes without hair and makeup in the clink. According to a recent report Joe was spotted with a woman named Jamie Jackson, a 30-year-old “party girl” who was drunk enough to make-out with Juicy all over Atlantic City with cameras present. Is anyone that desperate?
Joe denies cheating on Teresa with Jamie, and says the rumors are baseless. “I met this girl twice and nothing went on,” he insists.
Mark Behar, a celebrity security specialist who was hired to follow Joe in Teresa’s absence, says Juicy has been wasting hours of his day at the bar, drinking heavily, and puffing on cigars! Maybe he should call ultimate sober companion Brandi Glanville!
Nothing like a little snow day delirium to get the instagram videos flowin’! Melissa Gorga and Jacqueline Laurita have been putting all the bad New Jersey weather to good use with a little blizzard fun!
Together with their husbands Joe Gorga and Chris Laurita, the Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars busted into the wine cellar and had an old fashioned dance party and tons of rotten egg smelling wine and karaoke!
“Snowed in!!! We are delirious!!” Melissa wrote. Clearly. She got her best J. Faux on and while Jacqueline and Chris Laurita mimicked a raunchy high school dance while the chaperones were distracted by someone sneaking in Boone’s Farms!
Then Melissa and Poison belted out a little Michael Bolton! I warn you – it’s worse than Melissa’s usual singing. In fact there was lots of karaoke! “I’m totally sober by the way,” Jacqueline insisted. OK, yeah, you can judge for yourself.
You can watch their silly fun in the snow videos below!
First up Tuh-resssssssa and her husband Rino Aprea have been stung with a class action lawsuit by two former employees who allege the restaurant owners refused to pay employees for full shifts! Oh – and they had to pay to launder their own uniforms.
Teresa and Rino own Angelo’s of Mulberry St in NYC and a former bartender and a waiter have taken the RHONJ stars to court over a laundry bill and on an accusation that they intentionally “short changed” employees checks by paying them for 7 hour shifts when they routinely worked 10 hours. The suit, filed in US district court. cites that the Apreas “regularly scheduled or knowingly permitted” employees to work more than 40 hours but then refused to pay time-and-a-half for hours.
