Ed Bergan, owner of the Something Sophisticated clothing store in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey did a photo shoot with Rich and his son Joseph to help promote his store after they reached out to him. In exchange, they received some free shirts (two shirts apiece).
That all sounds good enough. However some drama ensued when according to Ed, Rich decided he didn’t get enough free shirts (the polo shirts retail for close to $100 a piece) and had his assistant send the store a scathing email, demanding they stop using Rich’s image to promote the store.
In the email, which was sent to Reality Tea, an assistant for both Kathy and Rich writes, “Richard and Joseph lending themselves to your shop for a photo shoot is definitively much more of a benefit to you than it is to them… I feel it is totally of bad taste and disrespectful not only to give both Richard and Joseph a limit of two items that they could take from your shop.”
The email continues, “Two shirts at a price point of a total for maybe $100 in exchange for all that associated your shop with both Richard and Joseph is not at all being thankful nor grateful for whom they are. Richard and his family are already established brands.” Wowzers.
To end the email, the assistant Leslie Mota then demands the store immediately stop using the Wakiles’ images for any promotion. “I must regretfully inform you that we are not allowing the pictures to be used by you, your shop and/or photographer in anyway. We are not authorizing you to use them for the purpose of promoting your business and/or clothes line.”
The store owner first relayed the story to Tom Murro of Celebritymagnet.com, who was there visiting the store with new couple Kim Granatell and Michael Lohan. Yes the two are reportedly now dating. Tom adds that the store however has other supporters in the form of the Manzo brothers, and as for Kim G., she was “disgusted beyond words” upon hearing the store owner’s story.
The Wakiles have yet to respond to this story. In their defense, these are the words of their assistant… though the assistant was likely doing their bidding. A screen shot of the entire email is below plus a photo of Kim G. and Michael Lohan at the store.
Meanwhile, a week after writing the following on her blog – “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,” Teresa Giudice once again graces the cover of In Touch magazine while granting them yet another interview! The cover story this time around? “I’m Terrified of Being Poor.”
Teresa is pictured on the cover with one of her daughters which brings up a point made by one of our readers, Frankswif3y, who questioned in a recent comment if Teresa is using images of her kids to gain public sympathy. In looking at her five recent In Touch covers, she is pictured with her daughters on four of those covers. But we’ll let you be the judge. The latest cover is below.

On last night’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey it’s a very special holiday – Trashymas! I’m sure everyone got many, many lumps of coal. Jacqueline got one in the form of Ashely, Teresa received one in the form of Kim G, Melissa and Kathy received one in the form of Teresa, and The Caroline – well, she got diamonds. Lucky girl.
At the Giudices, they are decorating the hugest Christmas tree ever, but sadly it’s not made of money. Teresa wants us to know that because of the bankruptcy they only got a tree decorated in semi-precious metal and not the one made entirely of gold. D’ya hear that bankruptcy judge – they’re cutting back. If cutting back means driving a Benz and wearing Louboutins then I can only hope to cut back some day! Teresa also wants us to know that all she wants for Christmas is for Melissa’s bad energy to go away. ‘Cause, it gives her a headache.
Melissa is not happy because she just wants an authentic smelling tree for Christmas AND Jesus’ Birthday (which are NOT one and the same, apparently) as she is throwing Jesus like the best birthday party ever. Joey and Melissa discuss their concerns about Jr. Mafia not mixing well with others at their party since he is like totally responsible for the Christening incident. Uh huh. Joey Giudice totally caused the entire thing. Joey G-to-the-Orga and Teresa and Melissa and her sisters had nothing to do with it. Nothing. At. All. Uh huh. We learn Melissa’s hoping to be cast next season sister, Lyssa claims Joe G-to-the-Iudice’s mother punched her in the face at said Christening. Is that where Joe gets it from? Melissa makes it clear NOTHING is going to ruin Jesus’ party!

Just like that, we are already halfway through the third season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey as the 9th episode airs tonight on Bravo!
On the all new episode titled “Twas the Fight Before Christmas,” the Jersey girls jingle all the way during Christmas, but it’s much more naughty than nice when clashing and trashing mar Melissa’s over the top fabulous holiday party. Tempers will fly as Teresa clashes with both Kathy and another guest at the party. The episode airs at 10/9c.
Watch What Happens Live – The guests tonight are the Gorgas! Melissa and hubby Joe will join Andy in the Bravo clubhouse. Should be good!
In other RHONJ news, Teresa Giudice announced this week that she is getting ready to
stamp her name on some wholesale make-up launch her own cosmetics line!
“My first products are nail polish, lip gloss and lipstick. The packaging looks so hot, the makeup is so great, I LOVE it! I’ll let you know where you can buy it soon!” wrote Teresa on her website. The cosmetics line will be called TG by Teresa Giudice. Cre-ative!
Teresa also gave another interview to In Touch Weekly magazine this week to talk about plastic surgery! She denies the reports that she was planning to spend over $40,000 for a full body makeover but did reveal what work she has had done.
“After I breast-fed three babies, they deflated to nothing,” she tells In Touch on her decision to get a boob job years ago. “I didn’t’ like my boobies at all, so by my third baby, I was ready.” And now she feels “sexier and more confident.” Teresa also reveals she gets regular botox. “I do it right in between my eyebrows. I go twice a year.”
And when it comes to her stomach and butt, Teresa admits she has insecurities about those parts of her body. She however states that a butt lift and a tummy tuck are not in her immediate plans though she is open to getting those surgeries somewhere down the line.
A preview clip of tonight’s RHONJ episode is below!
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW, TERESA STARTING A COSMETIC LINE, & TONIGHT’S EPISODE?
After calling Melissa a copycat in her latest cookbook (yes she took a dig at her in a cooking book), calling her a liar in an interview last month, and referring to her as a gold-digger on the RHONJ, Teresa took to her Bravo blog this week to bash Melissa once again.
First Teresa, who is hoping to get her own cooking show, attacked Melissa in regards to their recent appearance on Live with Regis & Kelly stating she looked sad on the show because unlike Melissa who is enjoying all the negative attention, she simply isn’t.
“Yes, I heard from you all that I looked a little tense on the show, but that’s because I was. Having issues with my family blow up even bigger because we’re on TV together is kind of a nightmare. It’s not fun for me. I can’t pretend it is,” wrote Teresa. “I’m not gonna sit there and be all smiley and happy that I’m on a talk show when I feel like crying. I’d rather never have been on TV and have a happy family than go through any of this. And it’s hard to sit next to people who obviously don’t feel the same way and are loving every minute of it…,” added Teresa who has appeared on the cover of In Touch Weekly a total of five times in the past 2 months alone granting them exclusive interviews each time.
It doesn’t end there as Teresa goes on to attack Melissa’s singing aspirations. “Hopefully things will get better, but as long as Melissa gets attention for saying negative things about me, I think she’ll take it,” she wrote. “Once it all dies down, I’m looking forward to having our family whole again (I’m guessing that won’t happen until she fulfills her Britney Spears dreams though. Please, make it quick and painless. Thank you, Jeezus!).”
In true Teresa fashion, she also manages to take a subtle dig at Caroline Manzo who was rumored to be on the outs with sister Dina Manzo. “Caroline pointed out that with all her brothers and sisters, someone is always fighting, and I’m sure that’s true. She’s maybe more used to not speaking to her sisters or brothers for awhile, but I’m not. It’s just me and Joey, and I can’t stand not having him in my life,” wrote Teresa.
Teresa also talked about her recent magazine covers stating it’s starting to affect her daughters. “It’s getting harder and harder to keep the girls from reading the outrageous headlines when we’re in the store,” wrote Teresa. Odd considering she gave
paid exclusive interviews to In Touch Weekly for all of their recent cover stories about her.
As for Melissa, she has yet to respond to Teresa’s latest comments but seemed to have a more positive outlook on things in her latest Bravo blog. “I really meant what I said about wanting Teresa to be my sister. I wish she would have let me in from the beginning, but better late than never! We are fixing this!” she wrote. Safe to assume Melissa wrote that before reading Tre’s blog.
It also appears things are at least going well between the Gorga/Giudice kids as Melissa tweeted on Monday that she took her daughter Antonia alongside two of Teresa’s daughters to get manis and pedis together. Meanwhile Joe Gorga made the following tweet after reading his sister’s blog, “Just read the blogs, when will she stop?”
Great question but better yet, when will it all stop?

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TERESA’S LATEST COMMENTS ABOUT MELISSA? CALLED FOR OR UNCALLED FOR? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE REALLY WANTS THIS FEUD TO END?
On last night’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it’s Merry Jersey-mas! Jacqueline hosts another Gorgadice Reunion, Teresa gets rowdy in court, Melissa gets a record contract, The Caroline‘s daughter has some issues letting go, and Kathy makes more plans to open a restaurant.
Things start out with preparations for Jacqueline’s holiday party/Gorgadice reunion. In the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard Ashley (yes ASHLEY!) counsels Jacqueline to stay out of Gorgadice drama. Um… can someone please counsel Ashley on how her orange spray tan is atrocious? Please, someone? She looks like a Snork with her bright orange face and high ponytail.
At the Manzo’s Santa is bringing patience and cheer and bitchy sisters. Poor Lauren is left out of Manzo sibling bonding since the boys have moved out. Farewell Ham Game! Oh, Lauren – she has officially become The Caroline, Jr – storming around and telling everyone what to do. Albie says one positive about living with Greg is that Greg won’t end up dating Lauren… Oh, really? Is it because he may end up dating Albie? I kid, I kid… After discovering a mouse has eaten the plastic Santa, the Manzos play Mariah Carey’s Christmas album, buy two all-feather Christmas trees, call Cher and Chris March and invite them to their annual Christmas drag show starring Joey G-to- the-Orga! Actually I made that last part up, but wouldn’t it be a lot more fun than watching the Manzos bicker about nothing again?!

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice took a break from gracing magazine covers touting fake divorces and yet to be conceived pregnancies this week to actually open up about those topics during a “Twitterview” with her fans.
In the twitter interview organized by Celebuzz yesterday, Teresa revealed her regrets in doing the RHONJ, talked about those pesky divorce rumors regarding her and hubby Joe Giudice, and also revealed if she’s really planning to have more children.
When a fan asked Teresa if she regrets doing the RHONJ, she gave a surprising reply of yes. “Gonna be honest, I’m thankful for the blessings it brought but yes, I do regret it esp when they cast my family :(,” wrote Teresa adding, “I would never have done the show if I thought it would be me & my inlaws. No fame or opport is worth it. #family1st.” This isn’t the first time Teresa has made mention of the show’s adverse effects on her family though she has yet to mention any desire to leave the show.
When it comes to her marriage with hubby Joe – some tabloids have them divorcing – Teresa revealed they are doing great. “We are great, thank u! the stuff in the tabloids ab us divorcing is complete BS. our family is together & happy xx,” she wrote. So can we expect a new Giudice baby in the future, a son to be precise based on last week’s In Touch cover story featuring Teresa? Well she reveals uncertainty. “I’d love a boy and I know Joe would too but I think I’m done. If it happens it happens, but 4 is enough!”
Teresa also shared she is currently working on her third cookbook. As for her favorite housewives series other than the NJ series of course, Teresa reveals she’s a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Love Lisa & Kyle,” she added.
In other NJ news, last week Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorga revealed her 5-year-old daughter Antonia Gorga will be making her acting debut in a Snazaroo commercial on the Nickelodeon network. Melissa also posted photos of her 3 kids visiting the Jersey Boardwalk this weekend. Those pics are below!
And this week, Teresa also revealed her daughter Gia Giudice participated in a dance competition in Florida during which she came in first place. Teresa blogged, “Gia and I are finally home from Florida. We had such a great time and she did so great! She won 1st place and got 5 stars for her team, then she got 4-1/2 stars out of 5 for her personal routine which she only learned in February.” Photos of Teresa with Gia below!
And finally, below is a video of the NJ Housewives, Caroline, Teresa & Melissa, during their appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday -

Moments after the
disgusting shocking not guilty verdict came in the Florida case yesterday, majority of the public were incredibly outraged and many compared the results of the case to that of the now infamous 1995 O.J. Simpson verdict.
The irony of the situation was lost on poor Kimmie whose father, the late Robert Kardashian, happened to be one of OJ’s defense attorneys who got him off the hook. Kimmie took to her twitter page to voice her opinions. “WHAT!!!!???!!!! CASEY ANTHONY FOUND NOT GUILTY!!!! I am speechless!!!” tweeted Kim. “I am truly sick over the Casey Anthony verdict! So if the courts don’t believe she is guilty then who do they think killed this little baby?” she added.
Immediately after making her tweets, Kim received some very nasty and negative replies from many who felt she should not be commenting on the case due to her dad’s involvement in the OJ case. “ME TOO!! ITS LIKE WHEN YOUR DAD HELPED GET O.J. OFF!!” was one of the more popular responses made by a twitter user to Kim’s statement of being “speechless.”
Kimmie then tweeted, “Reading the comments here &its nuts people think just bc I was close to the OJ trial I can’t have my own opinion on the Casey Anthony case?” To which a
genius twitter user @MattHelgeson replied, “To be fair I don’t think you should have opinions about anything, not just this case.” Kimmie took the hint and stopped tweeting about the case all together.
Meanwhile, other reality stars were also outraged by the verdict. Below are some of those tweets -
Bethenny Frankel – “I’m so disgusted by the verdict that I’m almost consumed by it.”
Ramona Singer – “A very sad day that justice was not served for Caylee. Please let that poor little baby rest in peace.”
Caroline Manzo – “The defense team should show some kind of respect for this poor baby. Now is not the time for arrogance….. Jackass”
Teresa Giudice – “So insane to be in FL w Gia when Casey Anthony verdict comes out… As a mom of 4 beautiful girls, I just can’t… #disgusting #RIPCaylee”
Melissa Gorga – “Shame on you Casey… Bye….”
Royce Reed – “My what a works we live in… Nancy Grace bout 2go OFF!!! I honestly didn’t think murder 1 but def manslaughter. Wow! Only Guilty of lying!”
Kyle Richards - “So exactly WHO IS responsible for dumping Caylee’s lifeless body away like trash? nobody?”
Jill Zarin – “I can NOT believe Casey Anthony was found NOT GUILTY! What..the glove didn’t fit? The is terrible. I am SHOCKED.”
What’s sad is that when this is all said and done, Casey will end up wealthier than ever with the paid interviews, million dollar book deal, made for TV movie and of course somewhere down the line perhaps her own reality show. In fact an offer to star in a porn movie has already been made to her. Disgusting times we live in these days. As for Kim, she shouldn’t be held responsible for her father’s actions, but perhaps she should have had some tact and stayed away from the issue.
TELL US – DOES KIM DESERVE BACKLASH FOR SHARING HER OPINION ON THE CASE? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE CASEY VERDICT? DID SHE GET AWAY WITH MURDER?
