In the preview clip, we see Joe Gorga sucking on Melissa's toes as Teresa walks in their room at the Miraval spa in Arizona (yes, we're stillllll there!!). Teresa gifts Melissa with a pair of black lace underwear with a peace sign bedazzled on the crotch for her birthday present. Ya know, because there's peace in Jersey now.
Melissa shared a photo of the moving truck in the driveway. She wrote, "It's been a long 2 days.. 12 hrs yesterday & still going strong. Can't believe it's actually happening." There probably wasn't too much to pack as that house was pretty empty for its massive size! Which I'm not knocking – I'm all about less is more. I hate "stuff", so I'm a minimalist when it comes to that.
The Gorgas hit spent their Labor Day weekend at their Jersey Shore house before heading home to Montville to pack up and finalize things. The couple is now renting a place in a Franklin Lakes and are reportedly planning to build a new mansion. She can furnish it with her new home decor line, right?
There are still some disputes over the selling price of the home and questions about whether or not the Gorgas owned or rented it. We've been checking every day, but so far the closing and sale price haven't been updated on the government site. We'll keep you posted!
The couple was slated to stand trial in Newark, NJ on October 8th, but now will appear in court on February 24, 2014! Joe is already standing trial in October for his fake ID trial, the judge opted to push his other fraud trial back as lawyers for both sides petitioned for a continuance.
NorthJersey.com reports that the charges of assault and terroristic threats have been adjourned and will no longer go before a criminal court judge. Instead the trial will be heard in municipal court on September 26th.
The case against Johnny, filed as a result of charges being pressed by Jacqueline, Chris, and Joe, will also be adjourned and held in municipal court.
Yesterday the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion taped for an EPIC 15 hours! Seriously – is there enough booze in the world for that group to last that long?
We had thought an apocalypse came and claimed Franklin Lakes, NJ since no one was tweeting all day yesterday. Naturally we assumed Jacqueline Laurita had been nabbed by aliens, right? Nope – she was just being quarantined on a sound stage by Bravo. Luckily today she returned, tweeting: "Yesterday was a great day but VERY long!"
Teresa Giudice allegedly brought her attorney to the taping. A girl can never be too prepared! “Teresa wants to clear her name, but she’s extremely limited in what she can talk about,” a source told Wetpaint. “It’s very frustrating to her.”
Teresa is very blunt about her frustration with the editing of this week's episode, blaming Bravo for skewing certain things, slamming Melissa for Tweeting nonsense and calling Caroline a liar.
She starts off sharing that she loved and hated the episode. She first says what she liked about the episode (and throws digs at Melissa right out of the gate), "I loved it because I really loved the entire experience in Arizona. I love new things. You didn't see me making fun of the counselors or putting it down or whining in bed because I really appreciated everything about it. Part of life is to keep learning new stuff, and I love that. I was open to everything: the drums, the psychic, the horse, the high-wire. We were there to get some healing, and I was ready. I was tired of crying! Some good vibes and happiness were welcome!"
WhenJoe Gorga wanted to give Melissa Gorga a fun week celebrating her birthday at a spa with her co-stars and family, what she got isn't quite she was expecting.
Melissa took to her blog this week to share why she was just not into the therapy sessions at Miraval. Melissa says she's just all therapied out after the weekend in the mountains with Dr. V.
Melissa shared about this week's episode, "This was a strange one for me. I’m not going to sugar coat it, when I was told we were going to a spa resort in Arizona to celebrate my birthday, this is not exactly what I pictured. I don’t even think Joe quite understood what Miraval was."
About the horse therapy: "As I said that morning, I honestly did not want to do therapy and healing. Not that I didn’t want to heal our family, I just wanted to relax and for everyone to have a good time and enjoy our vacation. We had just done therapy at Lake George. We needed a break."
Kathy Wakile had a breakthrough this week with Cowboy Wyatt, sharing how much she keeps things bottled up instead of letting on that she's bothered. This week in her blog, she definitely doesn't keep her feelings under wraps! I think this is one of my favorite blogs that Kathy has shared!
Kathy kicks off her Real Housewives of New Jersey blog with a bit of shady snark – she gets two points from me! Kathy writes, "Heading into this week's show, the journey to find balance continues. How do you think we're doing so far? Some of us were really receptive to finding more about ourselves and some not so much (as usual)."
About horse therapy, she slams the cast mates who weren't being authentic. (cough **Terlissa** cough). "As you'll see, the effin horse proved to be smarter than all of us! He was smart enough to feel each of our energies and call B.S. on those that were not being authentic and were still holding back…letting your guard down is the first step of making progress."
