Earlier this week a media report came out accusing Teresa Giudice of plotting to destroy Melissa Gorga this season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Since filming has almost wrapped for the fifth season and the cast – including Teresa and Melissa – seem to be getting along and working on their relationships, we had our doubts about the story. 

Not, of course, because we think Teresa is an amazingly kind individual who would never, ever plot to ruin her sister-in-law's reputation, but because the image conscious Mrs. Giudice has her own reputation to protect. Disputing rumors that she is out to undo all of their family therapy sessions, Teresa insists she has no ill-will towards Melissa and is happy the families are getting along! 

"My brother and Melissa and I have been in a good place for a long time now," Teresa tells RumorFix. I'm thinking Teresa's definition of 'long time' and mine are different, but she's probably on reality TV time! She continues, "I would never do anything to hurt my family, ever. I don’t give two craps about rumors about Melissa’s past, as long as she treats my brother and my parents well, we’re good!”

Yes, we have ANOTHER Real Housewives of New Jersey post for you on this fine Wednesday morning! As fast as we type up one round of news, something bigger and better comes our way to contradict the last bit!  We need a nap.

Our favorite celeb journalist Tom Murro spilled some hot tea on the upcoming season's casting and filming.  Tom's source shared this juicy tidbit (juicy, but it gives us the serious sads), "All of the Housewives are back for the 5th season. Danielle has NOT been asked back and Kim D has not been given a contract, but has a small role (and not that of a Housewife).  Teresa has friends they they have asked to film with her but not offered contracts yet or to be Housewives."

Former Celebrity Apprentice contestant and foul mouthed comedienne Lisa Lampanelli is reveling in some pretty kick-a$$ weight loss.  While appearing on Bethenny’s talk show, the funny lady explains that her decision to get weight loss surgery came on the heels of her husband’s discussion with RHONJ’s Albert Manzo.  As you all know, his daughter Lauren recently had a lap band procedure to aid in her weight loss.

Lisa reveals that she and her husband decided to get a gastric-sleeve surgery together together to improve their health, and after ten weeks, Lisa has lost an astonishing fifty pounds.  Her husband has lost thirty-six pounds in the two weeks after his surgery.  Of course.  Weight loss is always easier for the dudes, right?

Chris Laurita
It seems Teresa Giudice isn’t the only Real Housewife of New Jersey star facing major financial troubles! A new report states that Twitterholic, Jacqueline Laurita and her husband Chris Laurita were recently named in an $8M lawsuit for “improperly using funds and assets” from their company Signature Apparel.

RadarOnline is reporting that Chris and his brother Joseph formed Signature Apparel Group (a company that once owned brands such as Rocawear and Eve’s Fetish) in 2005 and “drained the company” amassing a debt of $7,804,227 which was used to “support their luxurious lifestyle”!

According to documents the company banked more than $250 million between 2005 and 2009, but then surprisingly declared bankruptcy in September 2009, and just like their friend Teresa, someone started complaining that the bankruptcy petition might just be fraudulent. The suspicious bankruptcy filing prompted the debtor “to come forward with the complaint”, claiming company monies were “misused,” RadarOnline reveals.

Chris and Joseph “drained the Company of all its funds and assets in order to support their families’ increasingly opulent lifestyle of private jets, limousines, extravagant parties, premium automobiles, designer clothing, ostentatious home furnishings and lavish vacations,” the complaint filed November 2, 2010 alleges. “Signature’s assets were misused to make outright and unjustified payments to Laurita family members, and to fund the operations of the Laurita brothers’ other companies and business ventures.”

So what exactly did the Lauritas spend all that money on? Well, according to the documents, here’s the breakdown:

  • Nearly $2 million in credit card payments for the Laurity Family, including payments to more than 40 bank accounts
  • At least $331,637 for payments on no less than eleven leased cars, including a Bentley and a Maserati
  • At least $284,793 in airline travel expenses for the Laurita Family
  • At least $145,894 for private airplane rentals for the Laurita Family
  • At least $7,280 for travel agent expenses for the Laurita Family
  • At least $755,184 to defendant Christopher Laurita for undocumented or insufficiently documented reasons
  • At least $784,160 of disbursements directed by the Laurita Director Defendants (Chris and Joseph) to unknown recipients, without any documentation whatsoever

Even worse, the complaint alleges that Jacqueline had knowledge that shady business dealings were taking place and willing participated in wrongfully accepting money from the company, which is why she is named as part of the suit! The documents claim Jacqueline, along with Anthony Laurita, “knew of the Laurita Director Defendant’s wrongful conduct, and each substantially assisted the Laurita Director Defendants in breaching their fiduciary duties by, among other conduct, accepting funds they each knew belonged to Signature and for which they each knew they had performed no services and/or provided no value.”

“Funds that should have been used to grow Signature’s business and to pay Signature’s vendors and creditors, instead were diverted to the Laurita Family Defendants.” Oops – that’s not good.

Chris has denied “nearly all of the 155 allegations made in the claim” and believes it should be summarily dismissed, citing: “a failure to state facts sufficient to constitute a cause of action and a failure to state a claim upon which relief may be granted.” The case is still pending so Reality Tea keep you posted with all the updates! Jacqueline has yet to comment, but if Bravo had wind of this matter it may have been another reason she skipped the RHONJ Season 3 Reunion!

In my limited knowledge of bankruptcy law, this is what I understand to have happened: it seems that instead of paying creditors to keep the business lucrative the Lauritas allegedly pocketed the proceeds and spent the money for personal use, then filed bankruptcy to avoid paying their bills. Now they are being accused of fraudulently filing bankruptcy. Any legal or financial experts out there please chime in!

In other news, when it flurries it becomes a Norwegian! Just a few days ago it was reported that Jacqueline was indeed a stripper before marrying Chris and Jacqueline is still adamantly denying it! You know the old expression “the lady doth protest too much…”

Jacqueline took to her personal website to clear up any lingering suspicions about how she met Chris and is sticking to the story that they met while she was a convention model. She also posted yet another Tweet denying she was a stripper and accusing someone (ahem…Teresa) of leaking false stories: “Im being 100% honest w/everyone w/my story of how Chris&I met in Chicago. I WAS NOT A STRIPPER/PROSTITUTE as said by shady people 4 money”

I, for one, can’t wait to hear what sister in law from hell, Caroline Manzo has to say about the latest!
