Last week at the Human Society To The Rescue Gala at Cipriani 42nd Street, Jacques was pimping his new wine and talking politely about his former lady love, The Countess.
Jacques had a tasting table set up at the event for his newest wine venture Gabriella Wines and chatted up Tom Murro on their split. "Jacques was in a super great mood, he goofed around posing for pics with me and my +1, Olympic Skating great Sasha Cohen, in the photo booth. He didn't seem heartbroken and didn't have a bad word to say about the Countess."
There were rumors that this was going to be the first big event to be filmed for the new season, but we have confirmation that the event was not filmed for season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Tom Murro shared with us that his insider at the party said "there wasn't any drama or anything really noteworthy other than the fact that they all held hands and meditated at one point in the evening. Dina held Teresa's hand and they were acting like BFFs. Dina did smell like an English garden and had a trail of fairy dust behind her as she did the downward dog and everyone sang hallelujah just before they meditated… At least that's how I imagined it."
Even though this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey is still not over rumors concerning the next season's cast are already relentless! The most exciting rumor currently circulating is that Dina Manzo may be rejoining the show. Unfortunately there's a little snafu in the way: Jacqueline Laurita. You know that sister-in-law Dina doesn't actually speak to anymore. Oopsie!
Well no problem, because Dina can just get her fired! 1-800-Andy-Cohen. Or not. Yesterday Dina denied that she was trying to get people she no longer speaks to fired. Thank goodness because no one wants ANOTHER season of family drama, do they?! Same story + different players = no bueno. Anyway, now Jacqueline is confronting the rumors on twitter – where else!
"I don't think Dina is trying to get me fired but I know she doesn't want to come on the show with me on it.Probably to avoid any conflict," Jacqueline begins. Interesting that Jacqueline seems to admit both that Dina IS joining the show and that she is in fact LEAVING the show! #Drinking&Tweeting
The worst kept secret at NYFW was that the Ramona Singer, LuAnn de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan were taping scenes for the new season, namely at the Zang Toi show at Lincoln Center. Anyone in attendance and hanging with the cast had to sign a waiver and keep things hush hush.
Kim DePaola returned to Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, continuing her role as resident drama starter. The scheming sidekick chats with Tom Murro about everything from getting back in the dating game to addressing those stripper rumors and more!
Kim D. broke up with her boyfriend back in September and then he passed away in November. She's been off the market for a long time and admits that she may be ready to dip her toes back in the dating pool again.
While Kim may be ready to date, she's not ready to give online dating a try just yet. She says "Nooo way! Never!" to Match.com, even thought it's been a while since she had "some". "It's been a real long time, I'm an emotional girl, I'm not a dog in heat, I need to care about the guy before that happens''
Tonight's episode the plot will mostly center around Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo facing off for the first time since last season's "Disgrace" argument in Napa. The former friends, turned frienemies, turned total enemies will meet to try and mend Teresa's relationship with poor, widdle Poison.
Tom Murro's source EXCLUSIVELY reveals that the main point of contention will be Teresa's continued friendship with Kim D. Caroline presses Teresa about why she would remain friends with Kim given her involvement in the Posche Fashion Show set-up with Melissa Gorga last season.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star spoke toTom Murro of FoxCT last night to deny and explain the charges. Tom reveals that Jacqueline was essentially cornered and forced to address the situation. Sounds RHONJ-ish.
"Thank you for all who were concerned, but my house is NOT in foreclosure. There is no threat of losing it. We simply modified our mortgage which is a process," Jacqueline insisted. "Our mortgage modification has been approved and all is good."
Sonja dished withTom Murro on returning to RHONY for the new season. Tom shared, "[first of all] Sonja looked smokin HOT! When I asked Sonja if she was happy to be back on the show, she said 'well, I am very happy, but hate being stuck in the Hamptons all summer because we shoot. I would rather be laying on a beach in San Tropez.'" We have to agree with Tom here, whatever Sonja's doing is working because she looks incredible!!
At the end of Jerry's performance he took a few questions from the audience. Heather Thomson asked him what his favorite sitcom was. Jerry deadpanned, ''you're really asking me what my favorite sitcom is?'' He then said "I'm pretty fond of myself.. but the greatest sitcom ever was The Honeymooners."
Rumor has it Sonja, 49, was there with her new 23 year old beau – Radar Online has that part of the story. Rawr Sonja!
