We have seen the couple go head to head with Melissa Gorgaand Joe Gorga many times throughout the years. The longtime couple has never backed down from a fight, no matter who it is with. JoeGiudice is now taking his old moves that he previously reserved for his brother-in-law and moving them into the boxing ring!
Reality Tea is proud to announce that we’re collaborating with our fellow Evolve Media LLC websites for #WeSayThanks. This is campaign to thank and raise money for essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic.
#WeSayThanks coincides with Police Week, Public Works Week, and National Medical Services Week. We have also created a limited-edition T-shirt, with the promise to donate $5 from each sale to charities that support our essential workers and their families during this difficult time.
We understand that the pandemic has affected everyone in some way or another. Charity should be about contributing what you are comfortable with and able to do. It is completely understood that not all of our readers are in the market for a philanthropic t-shirt. That is completely OK! Whether or not you purchase a shirt, we would love it if you joined our initiative by telling us who you are thankful for in the comments section of this article or on Twitter with the hashtag #WeSayThanks. A simple “thanks” goes a long way.
We would also like to thank some reality TV stars who have given back during the coronavirus pandemic. And, of course, we want to thank everyone who has given their time and money during this time, especially those who are not in the public eye. We appreciate you!
It has been a difficult few years for the Giudice/Gorga family, to say the least. Earlier this month, Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorgashared the heartbreaking news that their father Giacinto Gorga passed away. “Nonno,” as he was referred to by his family, was a beloved character by his grandchildren and RHONJfans alike.
Since Nonno’s passing on April 3rd, Teresa and Joe have both been sharing family photos on their respective Instagram accounts. Their kids have posted sweet messages and tributes to their grandfather. Joe Giudicealso posted some touching tributes to his father-in-law. Now, Melissa Gorga is speaking out on how the family is coping with their loss.
This is not surprising news, but it’s still major. Teresa Giudice’s estranged husband Joe Giudice has lost his deportation appeal. The news broke today, after he has been living in Italy since November 2019. Before that he was locked up in an ICE detention center after he completed his 41-month prison stint for wire fraud and bankruptcy charges.
Usually, this time of year is consumed by tax-related worries. April 15 is around the corner, after all. However, that deadline has been pushed to July in response to the coronavirus pandemic. There’s no doubt about it, this is a difficult time for all of us. The coronavirus has changed everything. Essential workers are putting themselves at risk on the front lines. Many people have lost their jobs. So many of us are working at home while taking care of relatives and homeschooling kids. Everyone has had to adjust in some way.
At the very least, there are still some small joys to provide escapism, like reality TV for instance. Some of our readers are binge watching old favorites. Others remember the day of the week based on the new show that is on that night. Yes, there are more important things going on in the world, absolutely. But, at least reality TV has given us all some entertainment and a community for discussion.
The news cycle never stops. Even in a global pandemic, reality stars are thirsting for attention (i.e. going live on Instagram and making embarrassing Tik Tok videos). Not only that, but there are some old episodes and news stories that will be interesting forever. One thing that a lot of reality stars have in common, other than extreme thirst and a propensity for cosmetic enhancement, is an issue with taxes. How do so many public figures think they can get away with not paying taxes when they’re in the spotlight? Can’t they just hire someone to be on top of this? Overall, it makes zero sense, yet it happens a lot. Let’s take a look back at some of the reality TV star tax scandals throughout the years.
It’s going to be hard to watch Real Housewives of New Jersey without Nonno. Throughout the years, we’ve seen him as the center of his entire family. We even saw his grief when his beloved wife, Antonia Goga died back in 2017. I will never forget watching Nonno cry over missing his wife. But Nonno gave us so many good times on the show and it’s clear that it’s not just his family that will miss him.
Nonno was a part of RHONJfrom the very beginning. Nonno loved being in the kitchen. He could boil an octopus like nobody’s business, and I loved seeing him cook with his granddaughters. Ever since the death of Nonno’s wife, Antonia, Nonno had been living with Teresa and her four daughters. He was a huge part of their lives, and a support during Joe Giudice’s incarceration and deportation woes.
