As you know, there are daily reports about the Giudice family since Teresa Giudice entered prison just two and a half weeks ago. The stories range from hilarious to creepy to downright ridiculous, as per usual when it comes to the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast members, but the crazy gossip has really been amped up to insanity levels where Teresa is concerned.
Our source reached out this week to set a few things straight, including the latest report that Teresa’s sister-in-law Sheila is dying to take her place on the next season of RHONJ. Our source asserts, “I haven’t ever seen an article out by Radar that was the truth. Some are suggesting ^****^ and her camp are speaking to Radar since they have known to in the past.”
Hey y'all! It's time for your daily Teresa Giudice round-up! So in today's exhaustive report we'll discuss how Teresa is possibly getting a spinoff, how she never yanked Melissa Gorga's arm at a children's birthday party, and how she had a breakdown following the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. We've also got some EXCLUSIVES from our source on Teresa's possible spinoff and her brother-in-law, who seems like quite the scandalmonger.
Oh – and Jacqueline Laurita is all on the tweeter again (I swear she's the internet's number one twit) responding to Teresa'saccusations on Anderson Live yesterday. If you recall, Teresa accused Jacqueline of sending her harassing texts and mentioned she wanted to go to the cops because it gave her chills. Well if Teresa can go to the cops, Jacqueline can too! So HA!
The last two seasons ofReal Housewives of New Jerseyfans have watched the Gorgadice family fall apart over what seems like petty arguments, silly competitions, and straight-up jealousy. Viewers have seen sisters-in-law from hell Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga blame each other for the problems and cite jealousy over money, marriage, and fame as the reasons for family discord.
It also seems like Melissa and Joe G-to-the-Orga‘s marriage has been the polar opposite of Teresa and Joe G-to-the-Iudice‘s tumultuous marriage. Well, Reality Tea’s source tells us EXCLUSIVELY that Melissa and Joe’s marriage is all for show – literally – and before Bravo cameras started rolling they had many problems of their own which they now disguise for the the sake of reality television!

It seems that the illustrious Joe Giudice can add “slum lord” to his résumé!
A recent investigation by a local ABC news station has discovered that Joe failed to pay the utility bill and properly maintain an apartment building he owns and manages. Joe’s negligence and selfishness left five families–many with children–homeless this week over fire safety concerns, and because the utility company was forced to shut off service due to the severely delinquent account.
“The gas and electricity were shut down,” a resident explained. “Tenants can’t care for their kids and have no heat.”
Joe has an outstanding balance of $52,000 (or about two of Teresa Giudice‘s outfits), and the building was deemed hazardous after evidence of meter tampering was uncovered. Signs labeling the premises “unsafe for human occupancy” were put up after the Fire Marshal determined that a generator installed to get around paying the services, caused a deadly carbon monoxide leak!
The apartment building in question was featured in season two of Real Housewives of New Jersey, when Joe was seen showing Teresa around the premises before it was leased. Teresa famously said she would never live there. Well, apparently, no one should – since the remiss utility bill has also left all the tenants without hot water or heat!
Joe told newscasters, there was nothing he could do. “I don’t own the building,” he said in a voicemail. “I basically manage the building for a company in New York.” Unfortunately, their research uncovered that, while Joe doesn’t own the building directly, a company he owns does! Whoops. In fact, Joe basically admitted ownership when he confessed to installing the generator to help his tenants.
After the news station’s investigation, the power was restored and safety issues rectified, allowing the tenants to move back in. Sadly, it was also discovered that Joe’s failure to pay the alarm company left the building without working fire alarms! Joe was cited for these violations and something tells me he has a lawsuit coming his way very soon! A video of the news report is below!
Teresa and Joe have not commented on the episode, but I’m sure they’ll have something to say soon. Teresa will likely defend Joe. And while I’m not a huge Teresa fan, the more I learn about Joe, the more I am compelled to feel sorry for her. In my opinion, if she wants to remain in the public’s good graces and see her celebrity rise, she may need to ditch that husband of her’s! Especially because she’s working her butt off to pay his bills, and he’s likely going to end up in prison resulting from last year’s identity fraud indictment!
In other news, it looks like Jacqueline Laurita will be back for season five, whether she likes it or not. Our source told Reality Tea directly that Jacqueline signed a six-year contract when she initially joined the show, and despite her no-show at the reunion and her Twitter rampage, Bravo has no intention of firing her…yet!
“Jacqueline doesn’t want to be on the show anymore but, she has a six-year contract,” our source reveals. “The only way to get out of it without being sued is to get fired and they will not fire her.” With all the legal problems the Laurita’s are already facing with their bankruptcy fraud lawsuit and BLK. Water lawsuit, she likely can’t afford another one!
However, Bravo is looking for additional housewives to join the cast, as previously revealed. Reports speculated that they were interested in casting Teresa’s other sister-in-law Sheila Giudice, Joe’s brother’s wife. “When Teresa heard Bravo was interested in them, she quickly wanted to mend the feud between her and Sheila. The last thing she needed was another sister in law on the show bashing her,” our source dishes. Indeed, Teresa has posted a lot of photos on her website featuring her in-laws.
Luckily for Teresa, it seems Bravo has had a change of heart! The insider alleges, “Pete Giudice hasn’t paid taxes in years among other shady business dealings and Bravo didn’t want to take on the risk.” Pete was the one whose identity Joe impersonated, which led to his arrest and indictment late last year. Does failure to uphold the law run in this family or what?!
Finally, our source reveals something we’ve known all along – Melissa Gorga has become a complete famewhore! “Melissa sure let fame get to her head and fast,” the source shares. “Melissa will only do appearances that she is getting paid for.”
“She has been asked to attend several charity events and she doesn’t. But, if she gets paid she will be there! She is very focused on being bigger then Teresa.”
A fan recently asked Melissa about the non-stop appearances she has done (and advertising on Twitter) and Melissa claims she’s just all about the fans! “I love meeting everyone! I’ll do it as long as they keep booking me!,” she tweeted. I, personally, believe the Gorgas are not as financially stable as they pretend to be, and possibly need the money.
Good lord, RHONJ is like the Jerry Springer of Housewives!
TELL US – WHAT IS YOUR OPINION ON THE SITUATION AND JOE’S ACTIONS? WILL TERESA EVER LEAVE JOE? DO YOU THINK JACQUELINE WILL RETURN NEXT SEASON? IS MELISSA A FAMEWHORE OR JUST TAKING ADVANTAGE OF A GOOD OPPORTUNITY?

While things reached a boiling point during the Posche Fashion Show two weeks ago when Teresa reportedly plotted to expose Melissa Gorga as a past stripper, a RHONJ insider tells us Caroline and Jacqueline had stopped talking to Teresa before that event.
The reason? The two have had it with her after seeing her true colors. “They have seen the real Teresa through this last season with Melissa. Melissa is very close with Jacqueline and Caroline,” reveals the insider.
While Joe Gorga’sscreaming match with Kim D. at the Posche fashion show has been widely reported, our insider adds that Jacqueline and Teresa also got into a big fight that night. In fact the two former BFFs will be seen getting into A LOT of fights on the upcoming 4th season which is still filming at the moment.
Another reason for the tension between Caroline/Jacqueline and Teresa also has to do with Teresa’s many business ventures. Apparently, Teresa has been stepping on Jacqueline and Caroline’s toes by entering into businesses she knew they were planning to do.
“Teresa knew what Jacqueline and Caroline were working on as far as business deals and Teresa went behind their backs and copied what they were doing…. in other words she stole their ideas to make money,” said the insider. Yikes!
Our source adds that Caroline and Jacqueline are absolutely done with Teresa! “Jacqueline and Caroline think Teresa is a liar, vindictive, and so into the fame that she doesn’t care about anything anymore. Teresa will sabotage anyone to remain relevant.”
And while Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakilehave been diplomatic with their recent public comments about Teresa, our NJ insider reveals that she continues to remain friendless as none of her RHONJ cast members attended the party to launch her Fabellini wine on Friday night.
“None of the other women, their husbands, or children were in attendance. Not one cast member was present. She has burned every bridge she had,” says the insider. “Dina Manzo was there for less than an hour. None of Teresa’s “friends” were there. It was all family and the Bravo crew.”
Also in attendance was Teresa’s brother-in-law Pete Giudice and his wife Sheila Giudice. It has been rumored that Bravo is considering bringing Sheila on for season five.
Our insider adds that Sheila, who isn’t a fan of Teresa’s, is desperate to be on the show and has now switched her alliance from Team Melissa to Team Teresa! With the reports of Caroline and Jacqueline leaving the show after season 4, it will be interesting to see if Bravo decides to bring Sheila on.
Moving on to tonight’s finale/the 19th episode this season, below is a preview clip —

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE REASONS CAROLINE & JACQUELINE ARE NO LONGER TALKING TO TERESA? THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S FINALE?
UPDATE – As seen in the above preview clip, Caroline is not only ticked at what Teresa wrote about her in the cookbook but at also what Teresa wrote about her son Christopher Manzo. Below is what Teresa said about Chris via two excerpts from her cookbook –
“This is a family cookbook! Unlike some of the other “Housewives,” I do not condone young girls stripping to bring in business to a car wash, old ladies in hot pants climbing up on a pole to bring their sexy back, or videotaping yourself in any state of undress at any time. “
“That’s how it is with us Italians… We spoil our kids rotten, so much that they never want to leave home. Albie and Christopher Manzo are adorable, but don’t let them fool you. Their “L” in “GTL” (Gym-Tanning-Laundry) is “Leave it for Mom.” That’s just how it is, and how we moms like it.”
Days after a photo leaked online showing her husband Joe Giudice having dinner with his girlfriend a mystery woman, an article came out stating Teresa Giudice was laughing off the cheating rumors as she believed the woman in the photo was simply a family friend.
Well fast forward to today and an insider exclusively tells Reality Tea that is far from the case. According to the source, Teresa, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, is “a mess” and very “upset” over both the photo and the cheating rumors.
The insider reveals this isn’t the first time Teresa has had to deal with Joe’s questionable actions. “Teresa has accused him of infidelity many times over the years,” says the source. “Before she was on RHONJ, she expressed that to her family and friends.”
The insider adds that Teresa is definitely not laughing off the latest cheating rumors. “Joe isn’t so innocent and she knows it. She isn’t home laughing like Rob’s article said. She is a mess.”
As for the state of Teresa and Joe’s marriage, the insider adds that it is definitely not the happy go lucky union they try to portray on the In Touch Weekly magazine covers. “Joe cannot stand Teresa. The way he acts toward her on TV is the real deal,” says the source to Reality Tea. “Over the years Joe has been in some shady situations and his loyalty to Teresa has been questionable. He very frequently went to strip clubs and spent many late nights out with “the guys”. That is why when the show started Teresa was always talking about their sex life.” Ai ya ya.
The source adds that those close to the couple found it odd that Joe missed the Posche fashion show while his brother Pete Giudice attended the show with his wife Sheila Giudice. The photo of Joe with the mystery woman was snapped while the fashion show was going on.
For the time being the insider adds that Teresa is also “panicking” over Jacqueline’s recent tweets. As forJoe Gorga, he is said to be livid with Teresa and currently not speaking to her. Can’t say we blame him as more than one source has confirmed to us that Teresa was indeed in on the plan to try to expose Melissa Gorga as a past stripper. Except Melissa was never even a stripper.
Our insider supplied us with the below photo of Teresa with Pete Giudice and his wife Sheila at the Posche show. It is being rumored that Bravo is considering adding Sheila to the cast. Another fun fact? Sheila CANNOT stand Teresa!
Meanwhile Caroline Manzo is now speaking out on Jacqueline Laurita’s latest twitter rants in which she revealed her plans to quit the show. While a source confirmed to PEOPLE magazine days ago that Jacqueline had indeed quit, Caroline states not so fast.
As she participated in the Real Housewives Bravo tour in Atlantic City yesterday, Caroline shrugged off Jacqueline’s threats. “We have our good days and our bad days,” she explained to Wet Paint. “Every single one of us has felt like [leaving].”
Caroline warns fans of the show not to take Jacqueline’s tweets to heart: “Maybe [Jackie’s] in a funk now, and in two hours she’ll be like, ‘Hey, when are we filming next week?'” Interesting comments there by the Caroline. Jacqueline also posted a long message on her twitter page yesterday in an attempt to expose Teresa’s lies. A screenshot of that message is below.
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the RHONJ! On the 18th episode this season (the finale airs next week) titled “An Inconvenient Truce,” the wives continue their vacation in Punta Cana, but they discover the open-air market and streets can be hazardous (especially in heels). Back in the Garden State, Ashley considers getting a tattoo, and Caroline’s sons host a product-launch party. Also: Melissa prepares for an important performance. The new episode airs at 10/9c.
