Teresa Giudice

Just a week after an all out brawl at a child’s christening ceremony, it seems there is still drama raging on for the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

And once again the drama ensued at the Posche Fashion Show, you know, the same place cops were called to last year during the weave pulling fiasco involving Danielle Staub. And though there were no cops called this go around, RadarOnline reports emotions spilled over during the fashion show.

According to Radar, the show last night was the first time feuding sister-in-laws Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga (pictured above at the fashion show) came face to face following the fight that broke out at the christening of Melissa’s son. As reported, Melissa has been added as a new housewife to the Bravo hit show.

“Melissa and Teresa were on separate sides of the room,” an eyewitness told RadarOnline. “And not surprisingly, they were not speaking. It was Melissa’s side versus Teresa’s side. But you could see Teresa was intimidated. She sat in her seat. She didn’t move or talk to many people. She was not her ‘big’ self.”

The cause of the tension this time around? Competition according to sources. “It all started because Teresa was mad that Melissa was in the show for Posche and that Melissa was originally supposed to walk the runway before her,” said the eyewitness, who added that Teresa ended up walking out first.

The source added that the audience made it clear who’s side they were on. “When Teresa came out there was not much clapping or reaction. But when Melissa came out the room went nuts! A lot of the guests even stood up,” the eyewitness said. “Melissa looked beyond beautiful.”

And despite the denials from Caroline Manzo and Teresa that all is well in their relationship, RadarOnline reports once again that there is a rift between the two ladies which was  more obvious last night.

“Teresa and Caroline were talking at the table, but you could tell that they aren’t as close anymore,” an eyewitness said. It didn’t help matters when Teresa’s hairdresser Daniel, who was reportedly intoxicated began hurling profanities at Caroline and her husband Al Manzo.

Caroline reportedly reacted to the outburst by saying, “This is my home and this isn’t the time or the place,” and then kicking him out of the event, as the event took place at the Brownstone.

Radar also adds that Teresa’s cousin Kathy Wakile has been added to the cast and that Teresa was unhappy last night as she thought Kathy was too friendly with Melissa. Sources however say Kathy was just trying to play peacemaker between Teresa and Melissa.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? ARE YOU AS EXCITED ABOUT THE 3RD SEASON OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES AS WE ARE?

We reported two days ago that Joe Giudice started a brawl by punching his brother-in-law at the Christening ceremony of his wife Teresa’s nephew, well it now seems there might have been good reason for Joe’s misplaced anger.

Teresa Giudice, star of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, graces this week’s issue of Life & Style magazine under the title, “Betrayed By Her Man.” The magazine cover (a bigger photo is below) goes on to state: ‘Teresa’s Sleazy Husband Caught With Another Woman.’

According to Life & Style, Joe has been leading a secret, double life – filled with regular visits to strip clubs. A former dancer at the Showoffs strip club in West Orange, NJ tells the mag that Joe was a regular at the strip club before it was closed down in 2006 amid accusations of prostitution.

“He was always up for a lap dance,” reveals the insider. “There was a lot of hanky-panky that went down in the club’s basement… If you had money, you could get pretty up close and personal with the strippers.”

Joe was also allegedly a regular at another NJ bar called the Latin Bar. A source says “there was one particular waitress Joe really liked there.” The insider recalls, “She was from the Dominican Republic, about 5 feet tall with big breasts and long, dark hair. Joe would always make sure that wherever he was, he could be back in Paterson on a Friday night so he could see her.”

And finally, Life & Style reports that Joe developed a very close relationship with a “young female staffer” who wasn’t “qualified” for the job back at his former real estate development office. Sources reveal that Joe called his upstairs office the “boom boom room,” and that when he tried to give away his couch, no one would take it.

When contacted by the magazine for a comment, Teresa maintains that her marriage is strong. “I have a great husband,” she tells Life & Style. “I wake up every morning and I’m like, ‘Thank you, God.’”

Magazines usually contact their story subjects to get their statement on the story they’re doing about before the issue hits the press, so there’s a good chance Joe and Teresa knew this story was coming days ago.

More details about Joe’s alleged sleazy ways in the latest issue of Life & Style magazine. The cover photo is below.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE THESE STORIES ABOUT JOE?

Just when you thought the Giudices could not get any trashier, RadarOnline is reporting today that Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe Giudice did just that at a baby’s christening over the weekend. The story you are about to read is insanity squared.

According to Radar, the Real Housewives of New Jersey stars single handedly started an all out brawl at the Christening ceremony for the son of Teresa’s brother and sister-in-law Joe and Melissa Gorga. If you recall, Melissa, whom Teresa absolutely hates and does not get along with, has been added as a cast member to the Bravo hit show, must to Teresa’s dismay.

The drama began at the Gorgas’ Sunday Christening ceremony for their son, you know, the same son Danielle Staub accused Teresa of not acknowledging. Teresa attended the church ceremony without husband Joe, but following the baptism, she and Joe along with their four daughters, arrived an hour late to the reception ceremony which took place at The Manor restaurant in West Orange, NJ.

As the Bravo cameras rolled, Teresa walked up to her brother Joe Gorga to congratulate him and he said in an upset tone: “Now you want to congratulate me after all this time? Now you want to be nice to me? Your husband didn’t even come to the church and you show up an hour late!” a source tells Radar.

Teresa attempted to play dumb and simply responded with, “I just wanted to say hi and congratulations.” However due to the bad blood between the siblings, a verbal argument ensued during which Joe Giudice got involved, leading to a physical altercation between him and Teresa’s brother Joey.

“There were punches, vulgarity. It was like a scene out of a movie,” another source tells Radar of the fight. “Guests were also screaming at the Bravo cameras to get out of there.” With over 100 people in attendance, family members and most of the guests tried to help break up the fight.

Shirts were ripped and Joe Giudice, who might or might not be a midget himself, reportedly yelled at one point to the people holding him back: “I’ll kill that f**king midget!” Another source adds, “Joey Gorga and Joe Giudice were like animals. It was complete chaos.”

Teresa’s father was reportedly extremely upset and yelling for them to stop fighting in Italian. Teresa kept telling her father: “I didn’t do anything, I didn’t do anything,” says a source. At some point, Teresa was yelling at Melissa and Melissa’s sisters got involved. “They also got into a physical altercation with Teresa, who was fighting back. Joe Giudice’s father punched one of Melissa’s brother-in-laws in the face and he was bleeding,” the source said.

Melissa and the guests were reportedly mortified by the barbaric behavior. A family friend at the party tells Radar that “Melissa is disgusted and humiliated. Her heart is broken for her son on his christening day.” Most of the guests were reportedly angry that their kids were traumatized and left with their gifts.

“Teresa’s children Gia and Gabriella were hysterically crying,” says a source. “Melissa’s daughter Antonia was also upset. Kids were running around crying, screaming and hiding.”

The family friend adds that “It was a special day; it was going wonderfully and perfectly and Teresa lost her mind and wanted to make it about her and does what she does best. She couldn’t stand all eyes on the Gorga family. It was similar to the Posh runway show situation [that aired on Bravo] where she started a fight with Danielle [Staub].”

Wowzers! WTF is wrong with these people? And for some odd reason, Teresa continues to wonder why people refer to her as trashy. It seems her contract dispute with Bravo is over as filming has started on the 3rd season of the show. Melissa hasn’t updated her twitter account in days and Teresa, who did not tweet all of yesterday, seems to be in damage control mode as she has spent the last 30 minutes tweeting photos of her daughters in their Halloween costumes, with zero mention of this incident.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THIS STORY? WHO IS AT FAULT?

UPDATE – Melissa Gorga posted the following on her twitter page – “Thank you all so much for your support, The day started out beautifully, I can’t stop looking at my son, I’m still in shock….”

Days after TMZ reported a contract negotiation standoff between Teresa Giudice and the Bravo network, a new report by Popeater is now revealing the real issue and how much Teresa and her costars are earning.

According to Popeater, Teresa, who is arguably the least classy most popular Real Housewives of New Jersey star, is actually making less money than her co-stars!

There is however a reason for this. See, Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita are earning more than Teresa because Bravo also has to pay their adult children for appearing on the show. Teresa on the other hand doesn’t have any adult kids, and therefore doesn’t get paid for her kids being on the show, something Teresa feels is not fair.

Popeater reports that Bravo states they can only pay the women the exact same amount, which is $250,000 for the upcoming 3rd season, but Bravo gets around the issue by compensating the adult children involved with the show. The Manzo family is reportedly getting $310,000, with the Laurita family slated to earn $270,000 while the Giudices will continue to receive the base rate of $250,000.

“She brings in ratings and [really] invites viewers into her house, even the birthing room of her daughter,” Teresa a source tells Popeater. “That she gets less — that’s crazy!”

The source adds, “Teresa understands her children can’t get paid because of issues with child labor laws, but she just she just wants them to have a college fund.”

With the $250,000 base rate, the NJ Housewives will become the highest paid of the Bravo bunch. Not a surprise as their second season brought in the highest ratings ever in Bravo housewives’ history. The 250k is also a very high amount in comparison to the $150,000 a season the Real Housewives of Atlanta reportedly got for their 3rd season, which is currently airing.

TELL US – DOES TERESA HAVE A POINT? SHOULD SHE BE GETTING MORE MONEY?

Despite a report that came out weeks ago stating that Teresa Giudice was done with the Real Housewives of New Jersey because she felt she was treated unfairly by the show, a new TMZ report today is stating that Teresa wants to return to the show, but only if the money is right.

According to TMZ, Teresa is on the verge of getting the axed from the show due to her money demands holding up contract negotiations, and Bravo is reportedly losing patience.

Sources close to Teresa are however firing back, telling TMZ Teresa’s under the impression the other women in the cast are earning significantly more money than she is and she wants to double her salary from last season.

Teresa is reportedly willing to walk away from the show if Bravo doesn’t cough up enough cash. Though Bravo refused to comment on the contract negotiations, they did state that they are looking at possible replacements. TMZ adds that all the other ladies are expected to return, with the exception of Danielle Staub of course, who despite her claims that she left the show on her own accord, was fired by Bravo.

My take on this? This seems like a negotiation ploy by both Bravo and Teresa. As we have previously reported, Teresa’s sophomore cooking book is scheduled to be released at the same time the 3rd season of the show will be returning so despite the leaked information to the press, Teresa needs the show. And with news that Bravo has signed Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, Bravo needs Teresa back on show as well.

Perhaps it’s a slow news day but RadarOnline is reporting today that Teresa’s brother in law, Pete Giudice, has also filed for bankruptcy.

According to Radar, Joe Giudice’s brother Pete and his wife filed Chapter 7 with the United States Bankruptcy Court in New Jersey on June 29, 2010. The couple listed their monthly income as $7,000 with assets totaling $1.3 million but liabilities of nearly $2 million. Guess this is chump change compared to the $11 million debt of Teresa and Joe.

Pete’s debts are defined as consumer debts with the number of creditors estimated to be between 50-99 with claims ranging from $160 to $46,000. Pete has also filed a notice to abandon his $1.3 million NJ home.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK BRAVO AND TERESA WILL RESOLVE THEIR NEGOTIATIONS DISPUTE? DO YOU WANT TERESA TO RETURN TO THE SHOW?

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo is speaking out about her co-stars and the upcoming season of the Bravo hit show.

In a new interview with Wonderwall, Caroline discusses Teresa and Joe Giudice, whether or not she will be returning to the show next season, and touches on the news that Teresa’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga will be joining the show. Excerpts from Caroline’s interview below -

WW: Are you looking forward to the new season of your show?
CM: You know I don’t even know if I’m on the show to be honest. That’s up to the Bravo producers. At this very moment I don’t even know if I’m in the show. They haven’t told us much of anything.

WW: I hear Teresa’s sister-in-law will be on the show? Did you think she’d fit in?
CM: I know that’s the word on the street, it’s in the rumor mill. I’m not sure though who’s going to be on, so I can’t talk about it. But yep she’s nice [Teresa's sister-in-law]; I’ve only met her in passing. You know just saying hi and bye. I haven’t seen her more than 20 minutes in my life. But she seems nice.

WW: How are Teresa and Joe doing after the arrest and bankruptcy?
CM: They are good people, they are survivors and they’ll be fine.

WW: Would you welcome the idea of returning to “Real Housewives”?
CM: I’d welcome it with open arms, but that’s up to the Bravo producers.

In other NJ news, disgruntled former Bravo employee Danielle Staub continues to bash Teresa Giudice in interviews.  The latest is an interview with UsWeekly magazine, during which Danielle mentioned her desire to dress up as Teresa for Halloween.

“I was just going to take a waxing strip and put it on my forehead, with a little doll hair attached to it and call it Cornelius,” she told UsWeekly. “Oh, is that catty of me to say?”

And though Danielle is into “making fun of Teresa a little bit,” she may not go through with it.  “Why kick her while she’s down?” she said referencing Teresa’s financial and legal troubles.

And finally, The Spin Crowd’s Jonathan Cheban is now denying the news he probably leaked out himself that he is dating 19-year-old Ashley Holmes. “We’re good friends. I’m friends with the family,” Jonathan tells PopEater. “She’s a cool girl.”

Is Teresa Giudice about to follow in the spin-off footsteps of Bethenny Frankel?

According to Popeater, Bravo executives are discussing the possibility of giving the Real Housewives of New Jersey break out star, albeit for all the wrong reasons, her own solo show.

“If they can give Bethenny her own show you can bet that they will give Teresa one,” a TV insider tells Popeater. “You can’t come up with a better script than Teresa’s life. She’s a mother and wife [of Joe] going through financial troubles and having to start all over again. Everyone has been hit hard by this economy and watching Teresa and her family struggle through problems will make for great TV.”

Popeater adds that Teresa has sold more magazines than Bethenny by appearing on the cover, plus her ‘Skinny Italitan’ cookbook is a NY Times bestseller.

However, a Bravo spokesperson failed to confirm or deny the news, simply telling Popeater, “Your Bravo insider has just as much chance of landing a spin-off show as Teresa.”

TELL US – SHOULD TERESA GET A SPIN-OFF SHOW? WOULD YOU WATCH?

Good news for the Giudices and bad news for those wishing to put in a bid on their personal items. PEOPLE magazine is reporting the bankruptcy public auction of Teresa Giudice, scheduled for Oct. 3, has now been canceled.

The lawyer for the Real Housewives of New Jersey star confirms the news to PEOPLE, stating that instead of a humiliating public auction, the Giudices will now be holding a private sale to maximize the amount of money they receive for their valuables.

Those valuables include a stainless steel gas range, a flat screen TV, a crest leather & fabric sofas, a faux marble chess set, bedroom sets, and a piano. You can see photos of the items here.

“When the sale is conducted, the Giudices would get $52,000, because they are allowed that as exemptions,” their lawyer, Jim Kridel, tells PEOPLE. “There would have been a shortfall. What if they got $30,000, but they owed $52,000 to the Giudices? It wouldn’t help, so we said why not have a private sale? It would be best for the state, the creditors, the trustees and the Giudices.”

Despite being able to get their public auction canceled, the Giudices are still facing legal troubles. As we reported weeks ago, a trustee for their bankruptcy case alleged in court documents that Teresa and her husband, Joe Giudice, hid assets, failed to report over $250,000 in earnings, and undervalued items listed as personal property exempt from the bankruptcy filing.
