It’s also the first time Bravo has recycled a Housewife by bringing Dina Manzo back from the dead as an official Housewife. And poor Dina – what a mistake that seems like it was for our zen princess! Tonight Dina will try to inject a little positivity into the show when she hosts a Project Ladybug fashion show to raise money for children with cancer.
But SOME PEOPLE – some people like the Troublemint Trashbag Twins Teresa Aprea and Nicole Napolitano decide to cause trouble when the confront Teresa at the event because they blame her for a little rumor that’s been spreading around. A little rumor started by Victoria Gotti who revealed that Rino, Teressssssa’s hubby, slept with his mother-in-law, Teresssssssa’s mama! That’s gotta make for an awkward game of Family Feud!
According to the lore of Victoria, or in my mind the defacto law of New Jersey, TerESa’s husband RinoAprea was telling tales that he hooked up with his MILF-y mother-in-law Santa and that is why he and Teressssssa divorced. Teresssssssa and sister Nicole Napolitano have been wishy-washy about denying the rumor, but finally came out and said it’s absolutely not true.
Apparently Dina feels Caroline, Jacqueline, and her brother Chris Laurita didn’t support her against Danielle Staub, but her buddy Teresa Giudice did when she flung a table and screamed “Prostitution Whore!” on national television.
“Dina isn’t speaking to her Caroline,Chris or Jax because of the first season table flip,” an insider tells Tom Murro.

Teresa’s crisis PR Manager Wendy Feldman confirms that her client will be writing a book about her time behind bars and about her life. Of course, Teresa’s motivation is money!
“She will make money off a tell-all book, because people will want to know her prison secrets,” Wendy explains. Wendy, an ex-felon herself who now specializes in helping others post-prison advised Teresa to use her experiences to her advantage.
Teresa Giudice has made a major step in putting her fraud case behind her. She has paid $200,000 in restitution that she was ordered to have in-hand at her sentencing trial — which was almost two weeks ago! (see update below)
But now, with this major hurdle out of the way, although there is still over $200,000 more to pay, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star can focus on what is really important. Preparing her family for her absence when she serves her 15 month prison sentence.
Will this rumor ever end?? Well, this is the Real Housewives of New Jersey, so chances are no, it will never end. So, am I the only one who thinks Victoria Gotti knew exactly what she was doing when she opened her big mouth to Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese?? Shame on her for continuing to spread such a gross rumor!
Then Dina Manzo got involved. Granted she was trying to put out the flames before an eruption instead of fan them! (Ahem, Hurricane Jim!) But, then she was caught in the middle just trying to make peace between TerEsa Aprea — who wanted an apology — and Teresa — who didn’t think she should give one.
And the hits just keep on coming for Teresa and Joe Giudice. After being sentenced to prison on multiple fraud charges — she got 15 months, he got 41 — now the judge has gone a step further and is insisting that the couple keep all of their finances separate from now on. (updated below)
Which could spell trouble for Juicy Joe, because we can never quite pin down what he does for a living. Although the Real Housewives of New Jersey star told Andy Cohen during their sit-down that he “still has his rentals” and that he is getting back into the building business, we have also seen him open a couple of restaurants and yet he always seems to be at home. Hmmmm……..
“I haven’t turned against Teresa,” Dina assures us, speaking slowly for maximum zen-pact in her post-episode vlog. “We’re 1000 percent fine – off-camera, on-camera. The editing likes to make things look a little more juicy than they actually are.”
