As reported last week, Joe Guidice is facing potential jail time due to all his shady dealings regarding his counterfeit driver’s license. The prosecutor isn’t likely to come to a plea agreement that doesn’t include some time served, and Joe’s attorney warns that all the talk of the incidents on the show are tainting the potential jury pool.
If Joe does go to jail, one can only wonder WWTD? Teresa Guidice already has a strained relationship with brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa (to say the least), but jail time for hubby could only add to the gossip and hatefulness that is bringing down the show. Also up against Teresa is Manzo matriarch Caroline, who recently said, “I hold Teresa responsible for a lot of relationships in my life that are hurting. Of course I fight with my brothers and sisters…the difference is, she puts the wood on my family’s fire. I put the lid on hers.”
Let’s talk about hypocrites… we see a lot of those on reality TV. Something we also see a lot of is impending nervous breakdowns – and it seems to me we’re witnessing a scary combination of the two in Caroline Manzo. Last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey was supposed to be about gay rights with the celebration of Jaime Laurita‘s wedding and Rosie Pierri accepting her own sexuality – sadly it was eclipsed by Caroline vs. Teresa Giudice with Caroline serving up more pettiness and more spite. This show was also about sibling relationships – and so many of these reality sibs actually have some pretty abysmal ones.
Things begin with Teresa and Gia having a chat about Teresa’s never peaceable relationship with Joe Gorga. Teresa is poking at Gia to open up with her while Gia is poking at an eggo waffle – I don’t remember that recipe being in any of T’s cookbooks! I kid, I kid.
Teresa wants to know if Gia thinks she is working hard enough on her relationship with Non-Juicy Joe and if she should do anything differently. Teresa taking advice from a ten-year-old says everything. LOL. In all actuality I thought it was a very sweet and age-appropriate conversation. I appreciated that Teresa wanted Gia to know they are working on things, but I also think Gia is exposed to a leetle too much family drama.

“Melissa is manipulative and jealous of Teresa’s fame and she has a dirty secret,” a source tells the site.
The source claims, “Years ago, Melissa and her husband, Joe Gorga, sent a tape to the producers promising that if they were cast on the show, they would do whatever it takes to get rid of Teresa.”
Apparently, Melissa has been vying for a spot on the show for a very long time no no avail. She even got friendly with the villainous Danielle Staub in hopes of gaining the attention of Bravo producers. When that didn’t work, according to the insider, Teresa told producers she would be able to bring down Teresa. I’m confused though…I know the producers want a lot of drama (clearly), but I just can’t picture them engaging in some sort of espionage laden plot to ruin the Guidices. Isn’t this old news RadarOnline?
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

It’s no secret that Teresa Giudice is having some major issues with her day job. And unfortunately her professional problems are also carrying over into her personal life. Rumors have been flying that the Real Housewives of New Jersey star may be gravitating towards a spinoff centering around Teresa and her girls. Well, now it seems Teresa is majorly hinting that she might be ending her days as a Housewife.
In her recent Bravo blog, Teresa talks about life on reality television and about her experience on Celebrity Apprentice, away from the family drama and friendship breakdowns. “Last night was also a personal celebration of the exciting new chapter I am starting in my life. I am in a really good place now and just want to wish everyone the best,” she wrote of being on Arsenio Hall‘s winning team.
On last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey the family feud continued. Teresa Giudice andJoe Gorga exchanged heated words at Kathy Wakile‘s pool party and family and friends remained divided over who is to blame for all the issues. It seems there will never be a resolution between the Gorgadice families and it’s made worse by Joe Giudice palpable hatred towards Teresa’s family.
As we all know the issues between Teresa and Melissa Gorga are nothing new. Reality Tea’s source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Teresa’s family has never approved of Joe‘s marriage to Melissa and it drove a considerable wedge between the family – and that Joe G-to-the-Iudice calling Melissa a “tramp” on last week’s episode is a sentiment shared by the whole family!
“Teresa was used to always having her brother Joe around and when he got married, yes things changed,” our source shares of the family back story. “They had a bond like no other brother and sister I have ever seen. It was actually pretty odd. They were obsessed with each other. Teresa put her brother first, always.”
