Yes, you read the above right! The tangled web of 'I hate you, I love you, I want to destroy your life, oh but I just want us to be close again' that is Real Housewives of New Jersey just got… crazier? Hold on – you're in for a wild one!
Yesterday we reported that despite an alleged reconciliation of the Gorgadice families, Joe Gorga said things were still very, very bad between the families.
Following two seasons of the same fighting between Teresa Giudice and her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga (and massive fan backlash), Bravo hired new producers to handle S5 of RHONJ as they apparently want a storyline with a more positive spin. Melissa hinted at this in an earlier interview.
According to an exclusive obtained by TamaraTattles, producers are so desperate for this family feud to end they are forcing Teresa, Melissa, and the Joes to film together and make nice (our source confirmed they held a staged playdate to appear like they are working things out).
I have, what I consider, to be bittersweet news. One of my favorites is quittingReal Housewives of New Jersey. I realize I'm likely in the minority, but I have a soft-spot for most of the Manzos. Sure I didn't like when Caroline Manzo got all bitter for an entire season (I was fearful someone was going to awaken to a horse head in their bed), but I do think she is sick of the toxicity and drama…even if she was a participant.
Even though it can certainly be argued that Caroline's children are overly coddled, I still think Albie and Chris are good guys. A friend of mine grew up with Albie, and he has nothing but nice things to say about their family. Of course, without the Manzo boys, there would be no Greg Bennett. Greggy is by far my favorite Manzo by association…and now he's leaving.
Greg is heading to the West Coast at the end of this month to make his home in San Francisco. Sadly (for me), this means he will no longer be appearing on RHONJ, but I'm hoping that he gets some screen time when he comes back to visit!
Yesterday there were quite a few reports that with Melissa and Poison Gorga attending Teresa Giudice's Milania Hair Care launch, the families were burying the hatchet and finally getting along.
Imagine – a Real Housewives of New Jersey filled with peace, love, and siblings that speak to each other. No one would watch, right? Well before anyone jumps the gun and assumes that all is tranquil, Poison is setting the record straight.
And OF COURSE everyone still hates each other. Le sigh. “It’s a dirty situation right now,” Poisontells RumorFix.
Despite Melissa and Teresa both agreeing to film another season together (possibly their last as Teresa continues to make moves towards her own show) in the hopes of rebuilding their relationship, Joe says “they are not in a good place.”
Hey, it's the same old Melissa Gorga story, different day? Is anyone else complete annoyed with this already? Well it's either ridiculous fake or it's totally true, but here's the latest Real Housewives of New Jersey story concerning Melissa and the allegedly fake life she lives.
Apparently Melissa has decided to shed her drama reputation and instead steal a cue from S1 Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo as the queen of family values on the upcoming season.
"Melissa feels that one of the main reasons Teresa became a quick fan favorite was because her relationship with the husband and kids was used as a featured storyline,” a source tells RadarOnline.
Caroline was seen meeting with one Dr. Dov Rand learning about treatments for her foul mood. Hopefully she didn't listen too carefully to his advice, because Starcasm reports the good doctor is headed to jail for the next five months and was just fined $30,000!
Dr. Rand pleaded guilty in federal court for accepting kickbacks in exchange for patient referrals to Orange Community MRI. Dr. Rand, along with 12 other NJ doctors, were arrested last December and charged with taking money in exchange for recommending Medicare and Medicaid patients for tests they may not necessarily need.
Some of our favorite reality TV stars may not have the best fashion sense, but they do love to try. Some of them even headed to New York Fashion Week to take in the shows (and hopefully pick up a few tips). We've rounded up some of the best photos for you.
Sometimes it's the most random of pairs that make for the most interesting television. Who would have thought that RHOBH'sLisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville would have become biffles? Not this girl…but how hilarious are they to watch? While we're at it, let's list some more unlikely couples that have had viewers glued to their TV screens.
