In their interview, none of the cast members mention Victoria Gotti specifically and they keep referring to Jim as the one to blame for the affair rumor. Teresa and Rino adamantly deny the affair accusation and snipe, “People do things for money. When you’re a has-been, you do anything to put your name in the spotlight and get on TV.” We’re not sure if Teresa means Victoria or Jim here.
In another massively long-winded missive, Amber lambasts Dina Manzo for being a ish-stirrer and blaming her for the Victoria Gotti rumor. After all, Teresa Giudice shares 50% of the blame. Silly Amber – doesn’t she know Teresa is never, ever, like ever responsible for anything bad?!
First of all, Amber calls Dina out on being faux-happy that Amber and Jim were meeting the group in Florida. “Did anyone catch Dina’s reaction to my call. She did not exactly seem pleased we were coming down or excited that I was in good health. I get the rumor was on her mind, but that was not exactly fair to me.”
“I was so torn on what to do with this info,” blogged Dina. “My first instinct was of course to let the girls know that someone was talking about their mother. If someone was talking about my mom, I would want to know so I could rip their face off. Not very zen, huh? Say all you want about me, but mention my kid or my parents and all bets are off.”
“Who knew this was going to be The Real Housewives of Medical Conditions? I think it’s great that Amber is choosing to share her cancer journey with the world, that Rino shared his colonoscopy adventure, and next week we get to catch up with Jacqueline‘s son Nicolas and see all the progress that he’s made,” said Teresa. “It’s very brave of anyone who’s struggling with a serious issue to use the exposure they have to share their experience with the world and help educate others.”
“Man is made of such a seemly shape, that friend or foe is not discerned by face; then hard it is the wickeds’ wiles to scape, since that the bad to mask with honest grace.” – Geoffrey Whitney
Amber continued, “If Whitney could reach into my soul and pull out exactly what is there, he would have used these words. I don’t know who to trust – who is my friend, who is my enemy, what are everyone’s intentions? This is a truly awful feeling that, clearly, many have felt throughout history based on so many literary works on the subject. What is the driving force behind our actions? How do we come to our perceptions of situations? It all can be profoundly attributed to the interactions between genetics, social factors, and environment. We take from our experience good attributes as well as negative attributes such as, weakness, insecurity, jealous, hatred, and even a lack of empathy.”
Teresa hasn’t blogged lately… but she has a few things to say this week!
“This blog is way overdue and only because of one reason. I have been totally disgusted with what Victoria, Teresa Giudice, and Amber have brought to this show,” said Teresa. “That repulsive episode of lies brought my parents, my son, and my nephews a lot of pain. And it did not stop there. Jim Marchese took it further and continued to spew these lies all over the media. What kind of a man would go after mothers and children?”
Twin sisters and cast newbies Nicole Napolitano and Teresa Aprea are understandably upset over the accusations made about their mother Santa having an affair with son-in-law Rino Aprea on the most recent episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Santa is so angry that she may file suit against…Jim Marchese? Color us confused, but were we watching the same episode? The one where VICTORIA GOTTI told the tale of Rino and Santa’s fling? And shared that it came straight from Rino himself?
The twins went to Us Weekly to share their tale of woe. And Us Weekly apparently did not see the show and claimed in their article that Jim is the one who relayed the gossip to us viewers. (photo above is of the moment Amber and Teresa hear the rumor from Victoria Gotti) Maybe Jim should sue Us Weekly for their error and besmirching his reputation! UNLESS the ladies/Us Weekly are claiming Jim starts spreading the story in upcoming episodes, but still, it didn’t originate with him.
A story exploded that the twins’ mother Santa once had an affair with Teresa Aprea‘s husband Rino (while their father was allegedly in prison, no less!). While the twins haven’t out and out denied the story, they are said to be furious at Bravo for bamboozling them and secretly conspiring with Victoria Gotti to air this super personal and private information – without even warning them that it was coming!
As a result Nicole Napolitano and Teressssssssssa were said to be so angry and embarrassed they quit RHONJ mid-season and refused to film additional scenes! Of course this rumor is brought to you by Jim Marchese and his super fascinating twitter feed!
When a twitter user asked Jim if Bravo producers used Victoria to reveal the rumor because they couldn’t get the information on their own, Jim agreed. Jim replied, “The twins quit because of this, so I guess Bravo is trying to soften the blow in case they want them back.”
