Melissa Gorga’s Former “Envy” Business Partner Slaps Andy Cohen & Melissa With $30 Million Lawsuit For Defamation!

Shocking news! Not everything we see on reality television is REAL! Okay, we already knew that, but in Melissa Gorga’s case, made-for-tv-drama is coming back to bite her in a very real way. The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’s former business partner, Jackie Beard Robinson, is filing suit against Melissa and Andy Cohen for besmirching her good name publicly. She’s hired hard-hitting lawyer Larry Klayman to handle the case.

Jackie, who opened Envy boutique with Melissa last year, parted ways with the reality star in January due to differences of opinion and clashing visions for the store’s direction, “specifically about Robinson’s desire to expand selection to accommodate shoppers who aren’t, say, a size 2,” according to the press release. Jackie and Melissa both signed legal paperwork to dissolve their partnership, but since then Melissa is reportedly fabricating a story that Jackie deceived her and actually “stole” her merchandise in the middle of the night. Not true, according to the lawyers!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s resident parolee, Teresa Giudice, who has a strict curfew following her recent release from prison, nearly violated it. Teresa, who got locked up on fraud charges, attended a red carpet soirée to celebrate the opening of sister-in-law and RHONJ co-star, Melissa Gorga’s fashion boutique Envy’s opening in Montclair, N.J.  

According to TMZ, Teresa, who has to adhere to a 10:00 pm curfew as part of her probation, nearly missed her check-in time had it not been for an Uber driver, who was willing to break speed limits to get her home and the merciful cop, who stopped but didn’t ticket them.

I mean, besides get her own show, write a book that isn’t vomit inducing, wear the jewelry she sells, and sing on key. But hey… when all else fails, open a clothing boutique!

Yes, it is true. The Real Housewives of New Jersey star revealed yesterday that she is opening a clothing boutique in New Jersey.
