Real Housewives of New Jersey

Melissa-Gorga

The feud between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice has been revived on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Once again, the drama stems from personal family matters. Teresa’s adorable father Giacinto Gorga told his son Joe Gorga that he misses him and wants to see him more. Giacinto shared the same sentiments with Melissa.

Teresa and her daughter Gia Giudice rallied for Giacinto and encouraged Joe to see his father more. Joe claimed that he was so busy with his business. Teresa wasn’t buying it. Both Joe and Teresa dragged Melissa into it. The whole thing is just a mess. It could easily be resolved by a phone call or a lunch date here and there. Nevertheless, it is the focus of the season, at least at this point.

Thanksgiving Instagram Roundup- Teresa Giudice, Marlo Hampton, JWOWW, Lala Kent, & More!

It’s safe to assume that pretty much anyone reading this is thankful for reality television. This gratitude is probably applicable to reality TV Instagram posts as well. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebrations and charity work.

Vanderpump Rules cast member Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett gave out turkeys to those in need. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania gave out turkeys in their local community as well. Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Marlo Hampton volunteered at the Women’s Community Kitchen.

There are some reality TV Thanksgiving gatherings that I wish were filmed. First and foremost, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, and Stassi’s man Beau Clark all spent Thanksgiving together. Stassi even joked on Instagram, “Why weren’t the cameras here?” Seriously though. That is a great question. Exes hanging out and actually being friends will forever fascinate me.

Speaking of exes, JWOWW and her ex Roger Mathews spent time with family on Thanksgiving. What is going on with the two of them? Are they just keeping it cordial for the sake of the kids? Are they repairing their romantic relationship? Either way, there were no smiles in the Instagram posts.

Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis shared a photo on Thanksgiving with her costar Austen Kroll. Who knew these two were such close friends? Southern Charm matriarch Patricia Altschul shared a picture from her Thanksgiving girls night out. Meanwhile Shep Rose spent some quality time with his mom and dad.

Don’t Be Tardy stars Brielle Biermann and Ariana Biermann posed for a sisters photo on Thanksgiving.

Black Friday Gift L

Now that Thanksgiving is over, it is officially Christmas and Hanukkah season! This means that Black Friday is upon us. Who wants to deal with that though? Enduring stop and go traffic, scrounging for a parking space, and sweating it up in a mall crowd does not sound appealing at all.

Skip all the hassle and just shop from home instead. That would make Black Friday way more enjoyable. Right? You can even purchase all reality TV-themed gifts for your friends, family, and even yourself. You deserve a gift too. If you don’t know what to get the reality TV addict in your life, don’t worry. Reality Tea has you covered with a great list of go-to products that are available from Amazon.

 

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Recap:Today I am thankful for witnessing the most awkward, fish-out-of-water weekend getaway in the history of Bravo. I was hoping for a Real Housewives of New Jersey crossover with Sweet Home. All I got was the preemptive simmer of a Teresa Giudice/Melissa Gorga meltdown. However, I am so grateful for last night’s RHONJ episode, and all the wind that wound their weaves. Happy Thanksgiving, y’all!

The ladies are prepping for their southern safari with the requisite amount of leopard print and rhinestones. Margaret Josephs is thrilled to work on her Hospital Heroes children’s hospital gown line with her longtime friend Polly. Teresa calls her brother Joe Gorga asks him to spend time with the amazing Giacinto Gorga, aka Nonno, while she and Melissa are out of town. Joe is frustrated with his sister’s directives. He’s far too busy with work. He urges a reluctant Melissa to go stand up to Tre in his absence. She doesn’t want to get in between the siblings. She’s been there, done that, bought the t-shirt, and has the stripper rumors to boot!

Real Housewives of New Jersey

At this point, Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 is all about Teresa Giudice vs. Melissa Gorga. Teresa’s father Giacinto Gorga told Joe Gorga and Melissa that he wishes he saw them more. They brushed off his claims. Teresa just repeated that same message and Joe and Melissa got super offended.

All Teresa wants is for her brother to see his father. However, it’s not really fair (or rational) to put the blame for Joe’s absence on his wife. Sure, it would be great if Melissa could persuade Joe to prioritize his own dad. But shouldn’t Teresa have this conversation with her brother instead of Melissa? That would be logical. Then again, this is Real Housewives of New Jersey. What is logic? Oh, yeah. It’s virtually nonexistent.

Jennifer Aydin Says It’s “Totally Unreasonable” That Danielle Staub Doesn’t Margaret Josephs Hanging Out With Dolores Catania

We are only two episodes into Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9. Even so, it is clear as day that the demise of Margaret Josephs and Danielle Staub’s friendship is imminent. Margaret told Danielle that she accepted an invitation from Dolores Catania to go hatchet throwing, as strange as that sounds.

Danielle and Dolores have residual beef for Season 8. Margaret and Dolores did not get along last season either. Nevertheless, they are trying to make amends and start new. The same cannot be said for Danielle and Dolores. Danielle completely flipped out when Margaret calmly informed her about the party. It was honestly pretty uncomfortable to watch.

Dolores Catania Sees “Something Serious Brewing” Between Teresa Giudice & Melissa Gorga; Looking Forward To Friendship With Margaret Josephs

As much as things change on Real Housewives of New Jersey, a lot stays the same. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga buried the hatchet two seasons ago. Now there’s tension again. In contrast, Dolores Catania and Margaret Josephs went from burying the hatchet to throwing some during the last episode. While the sisters-in-law have some some familial drama ahead, Dolores and Margaret are getting along better than ever. Will it last though?
It’s a great thing that Dolores and Margaret are finally cool. Just don’t say that to Danielle Staub. She is not on board with their new friendship. At all. During the last episode, she even asked Margaret, “What do you two really have in common? You cheated on your husband and she got cheated on?” Overreaction much?

Hot Photos: 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala

Where in the world is Lisa Vanderpump? Last night was the 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala and it was a Bravolebrity magnet, except that Lisa was MIA again (at least on the red carpet)! (see update below)

Nearly all of Lisa’s Vanderpump Rules cast was there to celebrate: Kristen Doute and Brian Carter, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz, Lala Kent and Randall Emmett and more! But no LVP from what we see in the agency pics.

Also there to take part in the event: Shahs of Sunset star MJ Javid and her husband Tommy Feight, former RHOC star Gretchen Rossi, former Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars LeeAnne Locken and Kameron Westcott made the trek to Hollywood to support the cause. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga turned up.
