Melissa Gorga appeared on Good Day New York to promote her new jewelry collection. Melissa also answered questions about Teresa Giudice and Real Housewives of New Jersey. She actually spent a lot more time talking about Teresa than her jewelry, but such is life as the sister-in-law of a convicted felon.
Melissa admitted that she hasn’t visited Teresa in prison, adding, “I think she’s keeping her visits for her children.” I honestly don’t blame her. I wouldn’t visit the narcissist, either, family or not. Melissa went on to say that Teresa’s holding up “really well” despite being away from her girls. “It is obviously not easy being away from the children,” said Melissa. “I think that’s probably the hardest part.”
Dang – does he have his own parking spot at the Passaic County Courthouse? Probably – and guess what, he can use it because Juicy gets to keep his driver’s license even after taking a plea deal in his fraud case which stipulated he wasn’t legally able to drive. #Winning
The Real Housewives Of New Jersey star is speaking out to deny he is being unfaithful while his wife goes without hair and makeup in the clink. According to a recent report Joe was spotted with a woman named Jamie Jackson, a 30-year-old “party girl” who was drunk enough to make-out with Juicy all over Atlantic City with cameras present. Is anyone that desperate?
Joe denies cheating on Teresa with Jamie, and says the rumors are baseless. “I met this girl twice and nothing went on,” he insists.
On her disagreement with Phaedra Parks, Cynthia says “It wasn’t really a disagreement. We talked amongst the group and it didn’t really go that well. I thought “let’s do this again, let’s talk one on one.” And she says that didn’t go well either.
Mark Behar, a celebrity security specialist who was hired to follow Joe in Teresa’s absence, says Juicy has been wasting hours of his day at the bar, drinking heavily, and puffing on cigars! Maybe he should call ultimate sober companion Brandi Glanville!
First up Tuh-resssssssa and her husband Rino Aprea have been stung with a class action lawsuit by two former employees who allege the restaurant owners refused to pay employees for full shifts! Oh – and they had to pay to launder their own uniforms.
Teresa and Rino own Angelo’s of Mulberry St in NYC and a former bartender and a waiter have taken the RHONJ stars to court over a laundry bill and on an accusation that they intentionally “short changed” employees checks by paying them for 7 hour shifts when they routinely worked 10 hours. The suit, filed in US district court. cites that the Apreas “regularly scheduled or knowingly permitted” employees to work more than 40 hours but then refused to pay time-and-a-half for hours.
One thing is for sure, though; Andy Cohen cannot imagine a world which does not include RHONJ. I bet neither can the sequin and spray tan manufacturers.
“I can’t imagine not filming the Real Housewives of New Jersey,” said Andy. “It’s a big franchise for Bravo. I think whatever we do, we’re going to do it the right way, so we’re still figuring that out right now.”
In December, Amber insisted waiting for Teresa to film season seven would be “silly,” adding, “I think they have an excellent cast, as is, and we can carry on.” Later, Jim argued that Teresa wasn’t the star of the show. He even pointed out that the most talked about episodes from season six – the trip to Florida – had nothing to do with Teresa.
