Last night Andy Cohen sat down the ever-so-crazy ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey for a little tell-all dish session and some word association. Word association was the best part and if Teresa Giudice's skill at the game is any indication of how she did on the SAT's, well… errrr… yeah.
Other than word association, the flashback photos were A-MAZ-ZING. Lord knows I love an 80's Jem & The Holograms hairstyle. And speaking of 80's, 'Vacations all I ever wanted; Vacation time to get away… from RHONJ before it even started!' (Courtesy of The Bangles).
I guess they're putting on their happy faces to gear up for tonight's Watch What Happens Live RHONJ special. Tonight Melissa and Teresa will discuss 'On Display Gate' which silly me, I didn't know was a thing. Apparently there is some debate about whether or not it was written about Teresa. Is that a compliment or an insult?
Reality Tea will belive-tweeting the drama, so make sure to hop on twitter for our immense sarcasm. I guess you could say we'll be 'on display' (they're just waiting on us to fall… )
RHONJ's WWHL special airs tonight at 8/7c on Bravo
Melissa headed over to Little Falls, New Jersey to pose for potential pics. She tweeted during the session, "Photo shoot today for new single cover.. @georgemiguelc glamming me up:-)". We have a sampling of the photos below.
Have you bought any of Melissa's previous singles? So far we've heard I Just Wanna, Rockstar, and On Display. What do you think is up next? And it will it hurt our ears?
TELL US – WHICH PHOTO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR THE NEW SINGLE?
I'm starting to think every, single thing I hear concerning Real Housewives of New Jersey is a big ol' fat lie. A lie bigger than all of the cast members' combined debt (that's in the millions, if you're counting!). I also think it's gross that a day of Holy Sacrament has become yet another reality show argument. And even worse this isn't first time where RHONJ's warring families are concerned.
Since each family attends a different parish, it was unfortunate that the churches scheduled the events on the same day. Our source tells us that while Teresa opted for a low-key family celebration, Melissa opted for a huge bash filmed by Bravo and filled with vendor "donations".
"Teresa had a small immediate family only party at an Italian restaurant," our source shares. Gabriella wanted a "simple" party and was happy. "Teresa's parents did attend both parties," but were "less than thrilled to attend their granddaughter's over the top affair. Of course, they went for their granddaughter."
While we all wait for the debut of season 5, the Real Housewives of New Jersey continue to promote their books and other projects. Over Mother's Day weekend, Caroline Manzo made another stop at the C. Wonder store at the Garden State Plaza.
Since it was Mother's Day weekend, Albie and Chris came to support Caroline – and provide some comic relief.
Well, a very reliable source just confirmed EXCLUSIVELY to Reality Tea that the recently reported RHONJ salaries are not true! In fact – they're totally off base.
"All 5 RHONJ cast members, Teresa, Melissa, Caroline, Jacqueline and Kathy made the same amount this season – $600k. That wasn't always the case but for season 5 they are all on the same salary," our source shares.
