The last Real Housewives of New Jersey season felt like we stepped back in time. After finally making amends, sisters-in-law Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice had tension all season long. They even went at it during the reunion, just like old times! Caught in the middle was Melissa’s husband and Teresa’s brother Joe Gorga. All he wants is for the two women in his life to get along.
Will that ever actually happen though? Drama with Teresa and Melissa almost always results in drama between Teresa and her brother, or vice versa depending on whose version of the story you buy. So what’s going on with the trio these days? How are they handling Joe Giudice’s impending deportation to Italy? Melissa recently opened up about the situation.
Is it even a Real Housewives of New Jersey season if the cast doesn’t celebrate Melissa Gorga’s birthday? Her birthday has brought us some major episodes over the years. No one can ever forget Melissa and Teresa Giudice throwing cake during the cast trip in Boca.
Last year, we met Jackie Goldschneider and Jennifer Aydin at Melissa’s party. This year, Melissa is finally hitting the big 4-0. Of course, they’re going all out for a celebration.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans should admire Danielle Staub’s hustle. Her
fiasco wedding to Marty Caffrey was filmed for Season 9, even though Danielle was once again only a Friend of The Housewives. Jersey girls Teresa Giudice, Margaret Josephs, and Melissa Gorga were part of the bridal party, and witnesses to Danielle’s bridezilla demands.
The doomed wedding was quickly followed by an acrimonious divorce, which was finally settled in February of 2019. In what seems like record time, Danielle was not only dating, but back in a serious relationship. Maybe now Danielle can be upgraded to full-time Housewife?
Real Housewives of New Jersey husband Joe Gorga has been busy lately. He wrote a memoir/ inspirational book about how to achieve success in both your personal life and career. The book is called “The Gorga Guide To Success.” I wonder if fellow author, and Joe’s wife, Melissa Gorga gave him some literary advice?
Joe has also been busy telling RHONJ fans how he and Melissa had sex every day for 10 years. That is something that I never needed, or wanted, to know about the Gorgas. Joe also traumatized himself by attending his sister, Teresa Giudice, bikini fitness competition. I am also having orange spray-tanned flashbacks.
Real Housewives of New Jersey husband, Joe Gorga has certainly been stepping up to the plate with speaking out for his family. Recently, he addressed his sister, Teresa Giudice’s plans to separate from her husband if he was deported.
Well, Joe is now speaking out in defense of his brother-in-law Joe Giudice. He has been released from prison after serving his sentence. He is now in ICE custody pending his deportation appeal.
The last Real Housewives of New Jersey was a revival for the show. They didn’t even need to bring in Kim DePaola, aka Kim D, to make things interesting. However, she’s still doing that. It’s just not in front of the Bravo cameras.
She still has a ton of tea to spill on her enemies Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. She discussed Joe Giudice’s possible deportation to Italy. As expected, she had a lot to say about the Teresa cheating allegations. She even came for Joe Gorga. It was a glorified family affair- with a little Ramona Singer shade thrown in to mix things up.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans are used to hearing all about Joe Gorga and Melissa Gorga’s hot and steamy marriage. Viewers may remember Joe and Melissa getting busy in a bathroom during a cast trip to Punta Cana. Then, Melissa gifted us in 2013 with her book, the somewhat controversial Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage. The book suggested that women treat their man “like a king.” Melissa has since changed her views from traditional to more modern. Nowadays she is a working wife and mother with her own boutique, Envy. And Joe still wants her to be a stay-at-home wife and mother. Remember how Joe built a recording studio in their basement to
support his wife keep his wife at home?
Now, there is another author in the Gorga family who is sharing relationship and life advice. Joe unleashed “The Gorga Guide To Success,” which is a motivational memoir about succeeding in business, love, and life. Joe authored the book with co-writer Kristen McGuiness. It is refreshing to see a Bravo-celebrity
admit to having a giving credit to a co-writer. Of course, literary talent must run in the family since Joe’s sister, Teresa Giudice, has written a memoir about her time in prison at camp.
Real Housewives of New Jersey rookie, Jackie Goldschneider certainly brought a lot to the table during her first season. She gave us some epic moments and served many of them directly to Teresa Giudice’s face. More often than not, Teresa was only able to reply in profanity and random hand gestures.
Now that her first season with the show has ended, does Jackie regret confronting Teresa with
the truth questions no one else would dare ask? According to the mom of four, not so much.
