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!

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! Melissaand 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 sisterDina 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?

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?!

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 Gorgarevealed 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.

In the latest issue of the National Enquirer, out of the woodworks is a woman named Jamie Bauer alleging she had a lesbian relationship with Melissa and dated her for 18-months while she was still a teenager. In fact Jamie even ponies up photos to the tabloid magazine to prove her claim, some of which are below.
“Melissa had one of the most insatiable sexual appetites I’d ever found in a woman,” declared her alleged former girlfriend Jamie, adding that Melissa once led a hell-raising life that is nothing like her now squeaky-clean motherly image. “This domesticated family woman that fans see on ‘Bravo’ is definitely not the same wild child I used to share a bed with when we were younger.”
Jamie reveals she met Melissa when she was a 16-year-old sophomore at South Florida’s Boca Raton High School back in 1995. Jamie was also 16 at the time. “We met one night at a house party and it was love at first sight,” says Jamie. “As a couple, we couldn’t have been a more unlikely pair. Melissa was from a affluent family and hung out with all the popular kids. She was a cheerleader, never got into trouble and made good grades. I was just the opposite. I was a high school dropout and already living on my own.” says Jamie.
“After we started dating, Melissa told me I was the first girl she’d ever been with. We managed to keep our relationship a secret from her mom for several months, even though I spent the night at their house several times a week and we’d sleep in the same bed.”
Jamie adds that Melissa’s mom eventually caught on to the relationship and banned them from seeing each other, though they still did secretly. “I’d sneak into Melissa’s bedroom window several times a week for sex,” claims Jamie. Eventually things cooled off between the two when Jamie was sent to jail for a probation violation.
Jamie adds that Melissa still wrote her “steamy letters” almost every day while she was in jail. However things ended after 18 months of dating when Jamie discovered Melissa had cheated on her. “When I got out, I found out she had cheated on me with another girl while I was away,” states Jamie.
Fast forward to today and it appears Melissa’s alleged lesbianism didn’t take as she has been married to Joe Gorga for almost 7 years with three children together, something Jamie is not too fond of. Jamie reveals watching Melissa’s new life on the RHONJ makes her “nauseous.” Wowzers. As for Melissa, she has yet to publicly comment on this story. You can read more about the story in the current issue of the National Enquirer.
Photos of Melissa and Jamie together are below.
In other NJ news, the Enquirer is also reporting that Melissa’s sister-in-law Teresa Giudice is seriously considering getting $40,000 worth of plastic surgery after recent photos of her in a bathing suit caused her “severe anxiety.” A source reveals Teresa, 39, is dealing with “a lot of insecurities.”
On Teresa’s reported to do list? A $12,000-$15,000 tummy tuck and thigh liposuction, a $7,500 “touch-up” on her boob job, a $5,000-$7,000 butt-lift, a $9,500 face- and brow-lift and $1,000-$2,000 on lip plumping. “She’s suddenly found herself famous around the world and feels entitled to this makeover because now she’s a star,” said the insider. Teresa’s publicist however denies she’s planning any cosmetic work.
And finally, no new episode of the RHONJ will air tonight. The show returns next week with an all new episode.

UPDATE – Melissa denied the story during her recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live. According to Melissa, her relationship with Jamie was only a friendship.
It seems Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudicesells magazines! That is evident by the fact that she is gracing three magazine covers this week, two of which are above (you can click on the covers to make it bigger). And if the cover stories are to be believed, Teresa is both pregnant and pursuing a new man. So let’s examine both stories!
First up is the In Touch cover story as Teresa graces the magazine cover for the 4th time in 6 weeks! Holy famewhore! Out of all the mags, In Touch actually has a paid real interview with Teresa.
The cover touts “A Baby Boy For Teresa!” So is she pregnant? Well that answer is NO. In reading the actual story, it is a what if scenario for Teresa who reveals she is considering having another baby, a son, for husband Joe Giudice. “I don’t know if my body will be able to take it,” explains Teresa who gained nearly 50 pounds with first child Gia.
Teresa, who has four daughters with hubby Joe, adds that having a son is very important to her husband. “That’s important to him, she says adding that even though a new baby would take a toll physically, financially and emotionally, she still wants to give Joe the little boy he’s always wanted.
In fact, Teresa and Joe already have a name picked out for their yet to be conceived baby boy. “It would definitely be Franco, after my father-in-law,” she shares. And Joe approves. “I think my dad would like that,” smiles Joe adding that he daydreams about teaching a son “football, baseball, boxing, karate, anything he likes.”
Teresa, who filed bankruptcy in 2009 with an $11 million debt, however worries about the financial toll having another baby would bring. “You have to worry about college,” says Teresa. “I want to be able to give them everything, and the more kids, the harder that gets.”
Moving right along to the OK! story which states Teresa is on the brink of divorce with Joe. The reason? Because he might be going away for 10 years. Joe was arrested earlier this year and charged with using his brother’s ID to get a driver’s license (his license is suspended due to a past DUI conviction) and faces up to 10 years in prison.
“If he goes to prison for years, Teresa will likely file for divorce,” says an insider. “Teresa’s really angry at him, she can’t believe he got arrested again. She just can’t forgive him. The fact that he premeditated [illegally getting the driver's license] and didn’t ask her what she thought has made her flip,” adds the source.
“She’s accepted that Joe will probably end up in prison for a while, and there’s no way she wants to be single. She’s faced the idea of dating again,” reveals the insider before going on to state Teresa already has a certain man in mind that she wants in her life.
As for Teresa, she is laughing all the way to the bank about the stories. She tweeted yesterday morning after the mags came out, “Happy hump day!!! What’s news (besides more tabloid covers…)? Enjoying your summer? xx.” You can read more of both stories in the issues of In Touch and OK! magazine.
