Can I just say, I'm watching Anderson Live, and that interview certainly didn't go as Teresa Giudice planned.  If looks could kill, Kellie Pickler would be performing CPR on poor Anderson Cooper right now.  Wow.  It's not Teresa's morning, and unfortunately for her, I have some more bad press for her, courtesy of sister-in-law Melissa Gorga.  These women of Real Housewives of New Jersey love to give an interview, don't they?  I really can't believe they don't get along seeing as how much they have in common.

In light of stripper-gate, Melissa is making sure we remember just how mean Teresa is (we get it, we get it!).  This time around she's talking about the "roughing up" that happened at poor G-to-the-IA Giudice's birthday party.  I mean, these poor, poor kids.  Shame on these ladies!

I will never understand how people can not like Real Housewives of New Jersey's Kathy Wakile.  She is just so down-to-earth and (compared to her cast mates) drama free.  I'll be honest, I felt badly for her during the finale.  All she wanted to do was enjoy her salad!

Kathy plays the voice of reason in such a ridiculous situation.  Of course, she seems just as confused and bewildered as most viewers who were watching that debacle go down. 

Luckily, Kathy is trying to make sense of the madness, and she's breaking it down for us…not that she draws any conclusions.  I am still so baffled by all of it, so forgive me if I come across as a befuddled mess–and I've watched the finale three times!

Oh Lord.  I am terrified to write this blog post because I know how things go when one speaks of Teresa Giudice from Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Here's my disclaimer:  I think Teresa is a whole lot smarter than she lets on, and I think she has the ability to be extremely manipulative when it works for her.  But guess what?  I think the same thing about Melissa Gorga as well!  In fact, all of these women seem hell bent in taking down one another in the press.

Here's the thing, Teresa can't have the keen business sense she possesses and be as ditzy as she appears.  She knows fully what her fan base expects her personality to be…but it is the same with each of the ladies.  Carolina Manzo is the Mama Bear, and Jacqueline Laurita is the airhead.  This isn't their first rodeo!  I actually find myself feeling sorry for Teresa.  Her marriage seems to be in shambles, and her husband is grossly disrespectful.  It's not fun to watch, it's pathetic.  Of course, Teresa's fatal flaw is that she never can (and probably never will) actually admit when she is in the wrong.  Oh, she'll flippantly say it in the tabloids or in her blog, but it is always followed by a qualification of how things aren't really her fault.  Though she claims otherwise, Tre has perfected the art of playing the victim…and people buy it hook, line, and sinker.

That said, do I think Teresa set up Melissa with stripper-gate?  No!  Teresa says there is no way she could pull off that stunt given that she's a horrible actress.  False.  She is a wonderful actress, but I have watched enough Bravo to know that it has its own agenda and story line.  The network is the ultimate puppet master, and we all know Kim D. would do anything to be one of those puppets.  So, let's recap before we get into the meat of this post:  I think Teresa is capable of masterminding stripper-gate, but I honestly think she has some sense (twisted as it may be) of family loyalty.  Paired with Melissa's obvious desire to replace Teresa in popularity with the viewers, it makes for a perfect storm of drama.  So, while Teresa has clean hands in this situation, it doesn't mean she isn't culpable for other things, like selling stories to the tabloids or pretending to think digging at Caroline's kids in her cookbook was an innocent joke.  Disclaimer complete!

Ahhh… Real Housewives of New Jersey. Never  a dull moment. And never one where I don't need earplugs. Yesterday Melissa Gorga paid a visit to Ryan Seacrest's radio show where she debuted her new single "I Just Wanna…" Oh, the fetes of autotune and audio editing. Amazing, no? I mean I could probably make a hit and I sound like my bassett hound howling when I sing. 

Anyway, Melissa tells Ryan: “I’m really excited about this one. I love it, it’s my absolute favorite. I think I have a hit here. There’s a male vocal that comes in on it…I’ve been looking for an opportunity to do something where a male vocal would come in."

Melissa collaborated with Santino Noir who sings on the track. And she also shot her first music video. Somehow I imagine a lot of discount Brittney Spears-esque grinding circa 2002? "I just shot an amazing video for it that’s going to be released next week. So, I’m just excited about the whole thing,” Melissa gushes. 

You can hear a clip of I Just Wanna… below. It hits iTunes September 9th! I know what I'm saving my money for…

Wow and wow.  Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice can't just leave well enough alone, can she?  As evidenced on the most recent episode, she's skilled at throwing her brother Joe Gorga and sister-in-law Melissa Gorga under the bus.  Is it just me, or weren't they finally getting along?

Now, believe me when I tell you, I think all of these ladies are a big ol' piece of work.  Unless Teresa's involved, it usually takes two people to create drama and tension (I'm looking at you Manzo sisters!), and it is, in my experience, much easier to always turn the other cheek.  When I was in college, my mother gave me the best advice when I was stuck in the throes of a manipulative friendship.  She said, even if people don't realize it now, and even if it takes several years and you no longer care, crazy always catches up to crazy.  She couldn't have been more right.

Ahhh… Melissa Gorga… back in the press defending yourself. Last year it was stripper allegations, this year it’s financial woes! The Real Housewife of New Jersey star fell under scrutiny when she and husband Joe Gorga listed both their Montville, New Jersey mansion and their shore house for sale last week. Melissa claims the couple is just ready for a change and it has absolutely nothing at all to do with speculation that they can’t pay the billz!

“The rumors that Joe and I can’t afford our mortgage payments and bills are 100 percent false,” Melissa told The Huffington Post. “Since when does selling your house mean you are broke?” Well, I can think of a time or two that it has, I’m not saying this is one of them. I’m just saying it happens!

Melissa, herself, told Reality Tea that she and Joe have always been financially stable and there is absolutely no validity to the rumors, citing proof that their mortgages have always been sound. Melissa’s publicist provided documentation to Reality Tea which directly proves Melissa’s statements about their home ownership.

The family feud on Real Housewives of New Jersey has cast a dark shadow over the last two seasons of what was once a fun and lively family-centered show. Save for the Danielle Staub drama, of course!

Fans of Teresa Giudice have been upset about what seemed like her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga‘s desire to join the show for the sake of her own fame. Melissa, herself, told Reality Tea that their family problems existed long before the show. Which has led many to question why, if you have so much family drama would you join a reality show to showcase those issues?

Our source confirms that the problems between the Gorgadice families has indeed existed for years – and that Teresa and Joe Gorga‘s parents are horrified by Melissa’s desire for fame which is tearing their family apart!

There’s always something with the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Which is probably why they’re our favorite of the Housewives franchises. The ladies can never keep the drama or the fashions tame and understated. As the ladies have been making the media rounds to promote the upcoming season, one key member of the cast has been conspicuously absent.

Teresa Giudice has been keeping a lowish profile as of late – at least where the RHONJ is concerned – and focusing on her other reality venture, Celebrity Apprentice. Apparently that’s a calculated move on her co-tarts’ part as they are refusing to do any publicity with her! Eeks.

“It is so ugly between Teresa and the rest of the cast that they can’t even be in the same room with each other,” a network insider tells The Huffington Post. “But this isn’t one-sided, and the hate goes both ways. Caroline Manzo, Kathy Wakile, Jacqueline Laurita, and Melissa Gorga want nothing to do with Teresa, and she wants nothing to do with them.”

And apparently the cast is yet again blaming Teresa for all of this season’s drama.  “This season is the most dramatic yet,” Melissa one cast member reveals. “It got so ugly that I’m not sure any of us will want to return for another season if Teresa remains on the show. The betrayal and backstabbing is heartbreaking. I have not seen how it will be all edited together yet, but let’s just say everyone will get to see [Teresa’s] true colors.”
