Some of the Real Housewives of New Jerseyladies may view Kim Das a cockroach (pronounced cock-A-roach), but she does certainly bring it with her cameo appearances. There’s no better way to get the RHONJ fandom on your side than to go against Kim D- and if it’s at a Posche fashion show, it is always iconic. We saw glimpses of the table-flipping Teresa Giudice from Season 1 of the show when she crashed the Posche Fashion show to confront Kim D about those cheating rumors.
Teresa spelling out “Posche” with a letter by letter insult aimed at Kim D was nothing short of legendary. Pushing that chair was just the cherry on top. Unfortunately for Teresa, she ultimately just gave Kim what she wanted: publicity for her store and increased attention on social media. Fortunately for the viewers, we will always have this scene to treasure. Margaret Josephsopens up about her first shake down and what the viewers did not get to see.
Teresa couldn’t believe that Kim D was trashing her marriage (even though it’s a #TotalKimDMove) and she was miffed that Dolores Cataniaand Siggy Flickeragreed to walk in the Posche fashion show. Now Teresa’s former nemesis-turned-bestie Danielle Staub has a lot to say about that and she’s calling out Siggy and Dolores on behalf of her girl Tre.
The Posche Fashion Show may have been over a year ago, but for Bravo it's the gift that keeps on giving! In the latest crazy story to emerge about the night from hell, a Real Housewives of New Jersey producer reveals that neighbors called the cops because there was such a ruckus!
I'm sure you all remember the screaming fight between Poison Gorga and Kim D. Remember – he accused her of being a "coke whore" and she rebutted: "I play with the big boys!" (which I'm inclined to believe – lady has some serious dirt, drama does fall into her lap after all). This all happened outside the venue.
Well, RHONJ producer Sezin Cavusoglushared with Wetpaint that local residents were so annoyed by all the noise and carrying on they called local authorities. "You see cops on the scene later on in this episode, and this is around the time when they started arriving,” she shared.
Real Housewives of New Jersey has been like the black plague this season. It's been all dark, dreary, and depressing. And just when things were starting to get semi-good between some of the castmates the annual Posche Fashion Show – the epi-center of all things drama on RHONJ – showed up and all went to hell in a handbasket!
Well, apparently the fourth season will be the last for the PFS (what will Kim D do with her life now?) as Bravo is not filming it for the fifth season! Despite the fact that the show will happen on October 2nd at THE BROWNSTONE of all places, Bravo cameras will be absent according to NorthJersey.com because they have no idea what ladies will even be returning for season five!
EEERRRK! Hit the brakes! Didn't MelissaGorga just complain about Teresa Giudice continuing her friendship with Kim D after she caused all that drama in her life? But Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita get a pass? Well, I guess family is family and co-stars you aren't really friends with but pretend to like for the sake of a storyline on your reality show are another thing. BTW, Jacqueline wore a top from Posche in her People cover. I can't keep up with these ever-changing pseudo-friendships!
While Teresa has been busy filming Celebrity Apprentice, Melissa has taken the opportunity to make the media rounds and do some interviews about her music “career”, her family and of course the show — specifically how she gets along with Teresa! Speaking to Fishbowl NY at Michael’s restaurant in NYC, Melissa again talked about the season three reunion and the Posche Fashion Show drama that will air in season four.
“We had just had a huge blow up the night before, and that was what was on everyone’s mind. It was so hard not to say anything. That’s why Jacqueline [Laurita] wasn’t there,” she explained about the season three reunion. “It was very confusing for us, and we were constantly trying not to say things about things that hadn’t aired yet.”
“Bravo is so sorry they shot them back to back,” she expects us to believe. “I don’t think they are ever going to do that again.” As for what happened, Melissa simply states that Teresa “tried to set me up”, claiming she is back to her “old tricks.” All of this is interesting because in several recent interviews featured on Reality Tea, Melissa has claimed the sisters-in-laws are in a better place now, getting along well and working on their relationship. She also said the show has “brought them closer together.”
This sudden change of heart wouldn’t have anything to do with a recent interview given by her ex-boss, Angelo Vrohidis, who claims Melissa was a stripper? In that same interview Angelo says Teresa had nothing to do with Melissa’s past being exposed.
Melissa goes on to add that her husband Joe Gorga, finds Teresa’s behavior “disgusting” but of course Melissa insists she is supportive of her husband’s family coming together. “The children don’t know about any of this stuff and they don’t care. They just want to be together. They really love each other. That’s what I don’t get. Why does she [Teresa] think I’d want to keep my husband away from his family? It makes no sense,” Melissa mused.
While denying that Teresa is “jealous” of her, Melissa is confused about why Teresa is bothered by her success. “I don’t know why it bothers her that I’m doing what I’m doing as a result of the show. It doesn’t take anything away from what she’s done. I think it bothers her that I even exist!”
Melissa conducted another interview with Mommyhood to Hollywood (wait – she’s a Hollywood Mom?) where she calls her relationship with Teresa a “work in progress”and again stresses it’s all about the children. “I know in my heart that I have done everything I can do to help her relationship with her brother and from this point on it’s between the two of them,” Melissa revealed.
The controversy continues for the hopeful pop star as AllAboutTRH blog (the same site that interviewed Melissa’s ex-boss) recently received an email from a person affiliated with Melissa’s publicist. Melissa is represented by “Illumination PR”. In this email, written by Will Love an entertainment reporter, he has some interesting things to say about Melissa! Including that he met Melissa when her publicist, Robyn, gave him an opportunity to meet the infamous “furtive confidante” of Danielle Staub at the 2010 Posche Fashion Show (featured in season 3).
Will goes on to describe Melissa as rude and claims that her inner circle (her sisters, I suppose) refer to her as “Lady Gorga.” Oh lawdy! Will also claims that Melissa, along with her sisters and Robyn, had a vendetta against Teresa! He claims Melissa and Robyn blacklisted Teresa, along with Kim D from a “Fashion & Beauty Week” Charity night and attempted to convince Bravo not to film the annual Posche Fashion Show in lieu of this event.
You can read the email in its entirety at AllAboutTRH and decide for yourself what you think. I’m inclined to believe there is some truth to it, but also some embellishments.
Moving on Teresa has apparently been thriving in her new gig, Celebrity Apprentice and according to her Tweets is getting along famously with Donald Trump Jr, Aubrey O’Day and Lisa Lampanelli! Anyone else disappointed about that — I was hoping for some drama!
Teresa recently appeared on The Wendy Williams Show where they discussed RHONJ, of course, and Teresa revealed she hasn’t spoken to Melissa “in months.” Regardless, Teresa is confident that her family will be okay and after reassuring Wendy that she loves her brother, she added “we’re going to get past all of this.” Teresa said she spent Thanksgiving with her husband, Joe Giudice‘s family.
But Teresa isn’t all that focused on family drama for the moment, because her third cookbook Fabulicious: Fast & Fit is in production and she has been promoting overtime! Teresa recently did a photo shoot for the upcoming book, which she advertises contains “sexier food.” She also released a preview of some of the recipes on her website.
“I thought you’d like to see some of our behind-the-scenes shots. Here are a couple of pictures of me prepping food, and me and my girlfriends. (I’m sooo happy to report my new cookbook is completely Housewife-free! If you can’t take a joke, you’re “fired”!),” she wrote.
And proving that she’s still Teresa underneath it all she Tweeted that the power went out during the shoot, but things got back on track when they found a generator, “Thank you Jesus!…Sign of the Cross backwards…” Ok, that’s funny — admit it!
Photos from Teresa’s shoot are below. Fabulicious: Fast & Fit hits stores in May 2012, apparently you can pre-order it on Amazon RIGHT NOW. Hurry!

Jacqueline made some not so cryptic tweets last night which made it clear she is over the Bravo hit series. In fact, Jacqueline stated she is ready to move on from the show.
First Jacqueline revealed she will be skipping the season 3 reunion, which is taping today. “I feel nauseous and feverish. No reunion for me.Sorry guys.XOXO!” wrote Jacqueline. Yikes! A reunion show without a current housewife has yet to happen in the history of Bravo. Not sure the network will be too happy with one of the main characters missing out on a reunion show.
What is clear is that Jacqueline was well enough last night to attend the annual Posche Fashion Show. So it appears her reasons for wanting to skip the reunion today has less to do with her health. In fact, her next series of tweets seem to prove that.
Jacqueline added, “Someone( not me) got set up tonight. There are some sneaky people trying to make someone look bad & then play innocent on camera. Sad.”
She continued, “2b honest.I’m tired of the BS &shitty low life people.I didn’t know this was what I signed up 4.I have 2rise above&move on.” No word yet on whom she’s referring to.
But what is clear is that some major drama went down at the Posche fashion show last night and it involved Teresa Giuidice! Of course. According to the tweets of those in attendance, there was a fight that went down in the bathroom during the fashion show. The rumor is that the fight was between Teresa and her new nemesis Monica Chacon. If you recall, Monica was Kim G’s guest to Melissa Gorga’s Christmas party this season, which of course led to nothing but drama.
Based on some of the tweets, it seems producers of the show might have purposely invited Monica in other to set off some drama. This would make sense in regards to Jacqueline’s tweets about a “set up.”
Soap actress, Martha Byrne, who was at the show, was live tweeting through the event. She tweeted last night: “Fight in the bathroom,” adding minutes later – “Teresa in bathroom with ….” Martha, who also stated some of the fashion show drama was scripted, tweeted some photos from the event. Those are below!
It also appears Joe Gorga was somehow involved in the whole fiasco as he has been making tweets about Teresa all day. First Joe tweeted — “I thought the saying was blood is thicker than water. #BULLSHIT” Joe then went on to retweet the following messages from fans: –
“I think Teresa must have set Melissa and/or Joe up to look bad (ie @JacLaurita tweets and now @joegorga tweets).”
“Me too theresa changed all bout her & $$$ nothing else shame.”
Danielle Staub, who claimed producers of the show had been contacting her to film, has also been mum on twitter since yesterday. Leaving some to wonder if she is involved in this fiasco is any shape or form.
In the meantime, below is a screenshot of Jacqueline’s tweets –
For the most part, the NJ housewives have been mum on twitter today as the reunion is filming. Though Jacqueline did manage to tweet this message just hours ago – “I can’t be part of the Charade anymore.It’s unsettling. It’s disturbing & against what I stand for. I’m a REAL housewife.”
And once again the drama ensued at the Posche Fashion Show, you know, the same place cops were called to last year during the weave pulling fiasco involving Danielle Staub. And though there were no cops called this go around, RadarOnline reports emotions spilled over during the fashion show.
According to Radar, the show last night was the first time feuding sister-in-lawsTeresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga(pictured above at the fashion show) came face to face following the fight that broke out at the christening of Melissa’s son. As reported, Melissa has been added as a new housewife to the Bravo hit show.
“Melissa and Teresa were on separate sides of the room,” an eyewitness told RadarOnline. “And not surprisingly, they were not speaking. It was Melissa’s side versus Teresa’s side. But you could see Teresa was intimidated. She sat in her seat. She didn’t move or talk to many people. She was not her ‘big’ self.”
The cause of the tension this time around? Competition according to sources. “It all started because Teresa was mad that Melissa was in the show for Posche and that Melissa was originally supposed to walk the runway before her,” said the eyewitness, who added that Teresa ended up walking out first.
The source added that the audience made it clear who’s side they were on. “When Teresa came out there was not much clapping or reaction. But when Melissa came out the room went nuts! A lot of the guests even stood up,” the eyewitness said. “Melissa looked beyond beautiful.”
And despite the denials from Caroline Manzo and Teresa that all is well in their relationship, RadarOnline reports once again that there is a rift between the two ladies which was more obvious last night.
“Teresa and Caroline were talking at the table, but you could tell that they aren’t as close anymore,” an eyewitness said. It didn’t help matters when Teresa’s hairdresser Daniel, who was reportedly intoxicated began hurling profanities at Caroline and her husband Al Manzo.
Caroline reportedly reacted to the outburst by saying, “This is my home and this isn’t the time or the place,” and then kicking him out of the event, as the event took place at the Brownstone.
Radar also adds that Teresa’s cousin Kathy Wakilehas been added to the cast and that Teresa was unhappy last night as she thought Kathy was too friendly with Melissa. Sources however say Kathy was just trying to play peacemaker between Teresa and Melissa.

Why Kim DePaola, aka the notorious Kim D, has never been a full-time cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey is a mystery. She always brings the drama, pettiness, pot stirring, and rumors. Still, she’s never been paid to be on the show, yet she always delivers, so I guess it’s the reality TV version of “Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?” Kim D doesn’t just bring the theatrics on TV – she also posts some pretty wild things on social media.
The most recent Kim D scandal? A mysterious note that was (supposedly) delivered to Posche. In true Kim D fashion, she never revealed the contents of the note, who sent it, or any pertinent details. She just teased that she received a letter on social media. Obviously, this isn’t Kim D’s first rodeo. She has piqued curiosity, and she knows that there will be plenty of people checking her social media accounts for a follow-up post.
