Joe Gorga is experiencing a reinvention of sorts. He’s been on Real Housewives of New Jersey for years now, first introduced to us as Teresa Giudice’s brother and now better known as husband to Melissa Gorga. But he brings a lot to the show on his own, despite a somewhat bumpy start. Let us not forget the Christening from hell where he called his sister “garbage” then cried to his dad outside. Then there was the infamous physical fight between Joe and brother-in-law Joe Giudice, where they fought so hard that Joe’s spray-on hair rubbed right off. In recent years, it’s been the treatment of Melissa, from investing large sums of money into a pizza joint without telling her, to making fun of her efforts to start her own boutique, even calling her earnings “crumbs”.
But it looks like our small-minded, little Joe is all grown up and if you aren’t following him on Instagram, run, don’t walk to hit that follow button right now. Why? For starters, he has started a series of photos of him in various poses, with the text of some very deep quotes. Quotes like “I may not be the fittest I may not be the srongest but I’ll be damned if I’m not try my hardest”. I left that as a direct quote without fixing what I think he actually meant to say on purpose, all for your reading pleasure.
After each deep thought, he uses a goldmine of hashtags, most notably #growwithgorga. As if that wasn’t enough, Joe has written a book, done some stand up comedy (yes, really) and even started a speaking tour, actually called Grow With Gorga, that “brings together the leading minds in real estate investing, lending and developing for training, enlightenment, and motivation” according to the website.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey are headed to the Jersey Shore! Anything can happen at the Jersey Shore. Jennifer Aydin and Melissa Gorga are still on bad terms, so being under one roof will only make it worse. Where does Teresa Giudice’s loyalty lie in this feud? Will she still with family or side with her loyal friend? She’s given Melissa hell in the past for siding with Jackie Goldschneider against her.
Dolores Catania may regret having all of these women together in one place. She means well, but it’s a little naive to think it’ll go smoothly. All hell may break loose. Danielle Staub is returning in this episode which means possible fuel to the fire. Imagine if Danielle and Margaret Josephs end up in another fight? A lot more may end up going down than a pulled ponytail. Someone might get sent to the hospital.
“Gia Catania” has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it? Obviously, I’m getting way ahead of myself on this one since Gia Giudice and Frankie Catania aren’t even dating, but a Real Housewives of New Jersey fan can dream, can’t I?
On tonight’s Real Housewives of New Jersey episode, Dolores Catania’s son Frankie takes Teresa Giudice’s daughter Gia to prom and I cannot even convey how happy this makes me, as a complete stranger who is just overly invested in the Giudice family. Frank Catania, Joe Gorga, Melissa Gorga, Milania Giudice, and Nonno are all on hand for support (and to take a million photos) before Gia and Frankie head to the dance.
Get ready for an eye roll. Joe Giudice is starting his own podcast. No one asked for this. Reality TV stars hosting podcasts is beyond played out at this point. Yet, here we are.
I guess Joe is gonna need some money to fund those trips to Mexico and whatever else he has going on. Maybe he can even start paying his own legal fees. Just imagine Joe reading the script for ads from his podcast sponsors. I am cringing already.
Joe Giudice is playing a major role on this season of Real Housewives of New Jersey, even if it is by phone. Viewers listen in as he calls his family from the ICE detention center. We also hear him argue with, and insult his wife, Teresa Giudice. He even told her that no one would want her because she has too much baggage. In my opinion, the only baggage that Teresa has is living in Italy awaiting his final deportation decision.
It is clear that Joe and Teresa have gone their separate ways, although there is no official confirmation. Teresa and Joe’s four daughters spent the Christmas holiday with their father in Italy. Teresa spent Christmas Eve in the company of her high school boyfriend, “pool boy” Tony Delorenzo, at Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga’s house. I am rooting for Tony and Teresa to get together. Just saying.
HOW COULD TERESA GIUDICE LEAVE HER WALLET AT HOME? All these girls want to do is see their father Joe Giudice, and now it’s not looking possible. The Real Housewives of New Jersey is always a little dark, but that is awful. All their daughters talk about is how much they miss their father. I almost had a heart attack watching last week’s episode when she realized she was missing the required identification.
A big question mark heading into this episode is Jennifer Aydin. She’s feuding with half of the group, and it gets worse by the episode. Her outspoken and over the top antics are not well received by the other women. Only time will tell if she can get back on the good side of the women who are allegedly her friends. You have to give it to her though. She brings the drama more than most of the group, and that cannot be taken away.
Even though Teresa Giudice hasn’t publicly acknowledged the end of her relationship with Joe Giudice, Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are so curious about her love life. It seemed like she was dating Tony Delorenzo, aka the pool boy, after they spent Christmas Eve together. They were also photographed together a few times since then.
Nevertheless, on last night’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Melissa Gorga insisted that Tony and Teresa are truly just friends. In fact, he’s been a close friend of Joe Gorga’s since elementary school. Melissa also said that Tony is at her house all the time. She even said she wished he and Teresa would date, but she promised that they weren’t actually dating. However, Melissa did open up about Teresa’s future dating life.
The aftermath of Jennifer Aydin’s meltdown on The Real Housewives of New Jersey did not disappoint. You just can’t be throwing dinnerware in a restaurant. Absolutely not appropriate. Not only was that bad, but some tension is starting to brew again with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. PLEASE DO NOT LET THEM GO DOWN THIS TROUBLED PATH AGAIN. OUR HEARTS CANNOT TAKE IT.
However, another big topic heading into this episode is what’s going on with Joe Giudice. Where will he end up? More important than that though might be “will Teresa and Joe remain together?” All signs point to no, but we will see what this episode brings. Something might change, but I doubt it. They seem done for good. There comes a time where you can’t take the verbal abuse and uncertainty anymore.
