I watched this Bobby Ciasulli interview/video over a week ago and meant to transcribe it to share the juicier bits with you guys, but time slipped away and I never got around to it. Bobby dishes on everything from how they all landed gigs on The Real Housewives of New Jersey to his friendship with Jim Marchese and his wife Amber and so much more!
I’ll admit that Bobby’s version of events is interesting and worth a watch. So, if you find yourself with some down time this weekend and you love hearing the “behind the scenes” tidbits, I’m sharing the full video below!
It’s like an overdose of Bravolebrities in our new Friday photos roundup! The reality stars were out in droves this week and we’ve got the picture proof of the good, the bad, and the just plain ugh!

Quick update: Dina Manzo is responding to Jim Marchese‘s latest claims that she asked to watch Jim and his wife Amber Marchese having sex. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star is reacting with some shade and good humor.
Dina Tweeted this morning: “It’s all good. Once I saw Amber go down on a coke bottle in AC I knew there was nothin much to c.” And then she added, “Oops did I just type that? Yeah I did. They shouldn’t take my kindness for weakness!”
TELL US – TEAM MANZO? TEAM MARCHESE?

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jim Marchese has had some pretty jaw-dropping things to say since he signed on for the show, but today’s quote from The Jim takes the cake.
Dina Manzo isn’t going to be a happy camper when she gets wind of the things that he has to say in a new interview. Jim made some crazy accusations, including that Dina reportedly wanted to watch Jim and Amber having sex.
Real Housewives Of New Jersey is nothing without a good villain – and this season, unlikely candidate Jim Marchese stepped into that role. Jim has been polarizing since the first day he appeared on the show, and he’s never shied away from being outrageous. Even today, after the season wrapped, Jim doesn’t apologize!
The Jim readily admits that he can be “a douchebag” but he’s OK with that title if it comes with defending his wife Amber Marchese, his career, or his reputation. “I am unfiltered. Clearly.” Which Jim says is why so many of the Housewives found him “unlikeable” – something that also goes for viewers who have lobbed a full-scale attack against Jim on social media and other platforms. One Jim encourages, it seems, by always retaliating.
Perhaps people really just want to see if the lawyer, who is not a lawyer, but did go to law school and didn’t take the bar, will follow through with suing us until we’re financially decimated, after he explains the ethics of abusing the legal system.

Part three of $#*! Jim Marchese Says, also known as the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, aired on Tuesday. So, with as many words as possible, Amber Marchese took to her blog to clear up a few things about Jim’s career, Jim’s bar exam, Jim’s misogyny, and Jim’s social media haters. Somewhere, Bobby’s hiding in a bathroom and crying, “Jim! Jim! Jim!” #MarciaMarciaMarcia
“Jim was a self-made, successful man at a very young age. He has never done drugs and has never been in trouble with the law. He put himself through undergraduate, then through a Masters in Public Administration at Columbia University while working at a pharmaceutical company,” bragged Amber. “Jim was then accepted to law school and once again attended in the evening while working for a biotech company. In addition, Jim was raising his son, Michael.”

Last night was part 3 of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion and it was officially the end of an era. Teresa Giudice, headed to prion in a few scant months, told Andy Cohen this was probably it for her – she meant it – she seemed at peace and ready to move on. “I 80% regret doing the show and 20% don’t,” she admitted.
Teresa didn’t go into why she regrets it, but I think we can all surmise that one of those reasons was sitting to her left in a white dress, and the other two were backstage pretending to be pure of motive, while eating cannoli, and the third one was in the green room having his 5th or 6th glass of rotten egg smelling wine; tawking too loud and laughing a bit too convincingly like everything was OK. Now sure, Teresa is mostly sowrry she got caught defrauding banks, but I think she’s mostly mostly sowrry that she’s realized how much she has to lose. Mostly her dawters – she wishes she could take them with her because she’ll miss them so much.
Teresa says her favorite memory on the show was Audriana being born in season 2. And when she gets out of jail she doesn’t think she’ll be back – instead she wants a cooking show. I do not think Teresa will be back. I think she will get a spinoff, of that I am positive. Will she take that spinoff? Who knows. Yes, she’s broke. And I also think this the perfect time for Bravo to wipe the slate clean and completely start afresh with all new women. Sowrry Melis!

Last night was the second installment of the Real Housewives Of New Jersey reunion. I don’t want to go into the stupidness that is stupid Teresa Giudice and her stupid financial nonsense and stupid decisions that made her go to jail. I mean damn, read what you sign, ask questions if you don’t understand – hello!
The most laughable comment from the whole reunion was Teresa trying to convince us that she’s usually a very conscientious-y type of person who “always dots her ‘I’s and crosses her ‘T’s.” First of all, she knows two letters in the alphabet? Bet they were both used a lot in the PLEA AGREEMENT Teresa didn’t read, but signed. Second of all, if you were a routine “i” dotter or a “t” crosser you’d not get indicted for bankruptcy fraud or sign fake W-2s because you’d actually make sure the people you hire, like your accountant, are doing their jobs! And finally – I’m frankly surprised Teresa was able to use that expression correctly. I would fully expect her to say something like “I’m the type-a person who crosses eyes and dots my teacup, with you know, fabulicious teas – coming soon!”
Let’s just say this, Denial is the longest river in New Jersey. The river of denial flows right out of Melissa Gorga‘s $3.8 million Montville mansion (where they had the big ol’ plumbing disaster and the leaky pipes and the plastic sink) and it roars down the hill into the chicken coops of Teresa and Joe’s purloined marble encrusted converted trailer, built at the base of Mount Tackiola. Now for sale, delusion included in purchase price!
