Michael Rapaport and Melissa Gorga on Watch What Happens Live

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga and Real Housewives super fan Michael Rapaport are Andy Cohen‘s guests on WWHL tonight.

First, Michael weighs in on current Real Housewives story lines. About Teresa Giudice‘s emotional return, he says, “Great TV. Her hair was fantastic – best hair line in the business.” As for Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s newbies, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, he loves them both. About a post-face lift Siggy showing up in bandages, Michael says, “This woman has balls.” He adds that Dolores is fantastic and has a beautiful family.


How does Michael feel about the “new” Ramona Singer dating and going out every night? “The new Ramona and the old Ramona are having a struggle. I don’t know who’s going to win or who’s going to lose. The new Ramona really thinks she knows what’s going on, but sometimes the old Ramona reminds her that she doesn’t really know what’s happening.”

Speaking of Ramona’s dating life, Michael‘s thoughts on Luann de Lesseps getting engaged to Tom D’Agostino Jr., “I’m concerned about what’s going on with Tom, Sonja, Ramona, and Luann. I wish them all the luck in the world, but he’s dipped his wick in two housewives, God only knows what’s next.”

A caller asks Melissa if she’s trying to compete with Kim DePaola and Posche Boutique? Melissa insists she is not, adding, “I think every now and again a rat needs to come out of the sewer for a piece of cheese.”

Andy brings up Kim‘s recent comments about Melissa – not only that she’s being fake with Teresa and that she’s lying about having several nose jobs, but also that Kim wants to punch Melissa in the face. Melissa repeats the same “rat – cheese” comment.

A caller asks Michael how his life has changed since he won the Biggest Bravoholic award at The Bravos. “How has my life not changed since I won the Bravo?” he snarks. “I mean, I get applause when I walk down the street, women open the door for me, I haven’t paid for a cup of coffee all week.” After meeting some new (to him) real housewives at the awards show, Michael says Teresa is “a lot more low key” than he expected.  

Who would Michael rather be cell mates with – Joe Giudice or Apollo Nida? “Gotta go with Juicy Joe.”

Andy calls out Danielle Staub for Tweeting about Melissa:

Melissa rolls her eyes, and asks, “Why is she bringing up stuff from, like, 2009 and we’re in, like, 2016?”

A caller asks Melissa why Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri were not invited to her Christmas Eve party and Teresa‘s New Year’s Eve party. “For Christmas Eve, it was just that we wanted it to be intimate just with her parents. It was her first day back. For New Year’s Eve, I’m not sure. It was her invite.”

Andy pushes Melissa to dish on Teresa‘s issues with Kathy and Rosie. “I don’t know,” she claims. “It’s something you have to ask her. It runs through the veins of the family. Things that were said bother her.”

Andy shares a new Tweet from Kim D directed at Melissa: “You know everything there is to know about rats!!!!” Andy adds that there was a picture of Pinocchio attached to the Instagram post, but Kim has since deleted it.
