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.
As sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, those wild and wacky Jersey sisters from different misters are at it once again! This time our favorite creepy Househusband Joe Gorga of Real Housewives of New Jersey recently shared his feelings on the very much on-again feud between his sister and his wife.
We all witnessed wildly angry Teresa Giudice in all of her spray tanned glory go on and on about controlling husbands and tossing cue cards during the three-part reunion special. While most of her anger was focused on new Housewife Jackie Goldschneider, Tre managed to rekindle the feud between herself and her long-suffering sister-in-law Melissa Gorga. This wasn’t taken lightly by brother Joe. In fact, he opened up about how emotional he became after witnessing first hand how the tension between the two sequined sisters impacted him.
Real Housewives of New Jersey fans finally saw Teresa Giudice spell out what the future holds if her husband, Joe Giudice, is deported to Italy. During the Season 9 reunion, Teresa revealed that she and Juicy Joe will part ways instead of Teresa moving their four daughters to Italy. Her fellow Jersey Housewives, especially Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin, were stunned. What happened to all those traditional, old-school values, Teresa?
In 2014, Teresa and Juicy plead guilty to federal fraud charges. Teresa served nearly a year
in prison at camp. Juicy is scheduled to be deported in March of 2019, after completing his 41-month long prison stint. He came to the United States when he was only one-year-old, but never became a citizen. Juicy filed an appeal in November of 2018, hoping to stay in the U.S. with his family. Teresa also revealed during the reunion that she is not willing to have a long-distance relationship. She also claimed that she has been faithful to Joe and uses a vibrator. There are some things that I wish I didn’t know, and that is one of them. I guess those sightings of Teresa with much younger man Blake Schreck were just some platonic hand-holding sessions. But one person who is firmly in Teresa’s corner is her brother, Joe Gorga.
One of the rights of passage of Real Housewives is the side hustle. Over 100 women have attempted to parlay their reality TV fame into side businesses. From clothing lines to stores that seem to close up shop in the middle of the night with a U-Haul, the enterprising Housewives are always angling for new ventures.
And one of the most popular side gigs is “writing” a book. Find a good ghostwriter, and you are set! We have seen Housewife books on everything from etiquette and cooking to fluffy autobiographies. Fortunately, House Husbands who aspire to be Housewives can also cash in on the book train. The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Joe Gorga has now cast his literary lot as an expert on business, love, fame and life!
Congratulations! We’ve survived the the final chapter of
the Teresa Giudice Show Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, although newbies Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldscheider definitely made sure their voices were heard. In the ladies fight for relevancy, they were faced with even more competition last night in the form of Danielle Staub and the extra wives husbands of the Garden State. Let’s be honest…these men bring just as much drama as their spray-tanned counterparts, and that is no small feat! Joe Gorga is reveling his second installment of the RHONJ reunion, having been invited early by Andy Cohen to attempt peace talks between his sister and his wife Melissa Gorga. Up to this point, both Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania have been relatively quiet. I did preface that with relatively… 🙂
Last night begins with a continuation of Andy’s conversation with Teresa in which she admits that she won’t move her family to Italy if husband Joe Giudice is deported. She hedges around the word “divorce” but she won’t endure a long distance marriage. Her friends seem both shocked and sad at this admission. Tre explains that she and Joe have spoken about what will happen, and they agree that they should go their separate ways if he is no longer in the country. Teresa didn’t share this news with any of her friends, but Melissa isn’t surprised–she wants her sister-in-law to be happy, and she can’t imagine having to make that decision.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion ended with Andy Cohen asking Teresa Giudice about the future of her relationship with Joe Giudice. If he does end up getting deported after prison, will Teresa stick with him? Or is she not down to have a long distance relationship with someone living in Italy.
Andy also asks Teresa if she’s been faithful this whole time Joe has been in jail. Unfortunately (for the viewers), this was taped before those photos came out. You know the photos of Teresa holding hands with a much younger man. The guy that was supposedly just “helping her to the car” in Miami.
Last night was the second installment of
The Teresa Show Real Housewives of New Jersey. Before Teresa Giudice can throw Andy Cohen’s cue cards at Jackie Goldschneider, Jackie reminds Teresa that she is on parole. The women shriek back and forth about which one is more obsessed with the other. When Andy is finally able to get in a word, he questions Jackie about the article she wrote about Jennifer Aydin’s kids. Not surprisingly, this causes Jennifer to transform into a banshee who demands THE TRUTH! Jackie tries to defend herself but admits that she should have given Jennifer a head’s up before it was published. A viewer calls the article complimentary and wonders if Jennifer even read it. Jennifer did read it, and she didn’t appreciate the critique of her parenting. That said, had she known it was coming, she wouldn’t have been as angry.
A fan questions why it’s okay for Dolores Catania to speak for Teresa, but it’s not okay when Jackie sticks up for Melissa Gorga. Dolores clarifies that she is just trying to share Teresa’s viewpoint in a quieter different way. Regarding the entire “control your husband” conversation, Teresa changes her tune and asserts that she only meant Melissa could persuade Joe Gorga to spend more time with Nonno.
