Not for nothing, I love these crazy screaming harpies and their intense hair and makeup routines. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is perhaps the most bombastic of all the “Real Housewives” franchises, not the least of which because of one Ms. Teresa Giudice, the dim little bulb that regularly flips tables and friend groups like it’s no big deal. Teresa never met a dully sly comment she didn’t like, and thank bless, because otherwise this show would be a total snoozefest.
After all the dramz of the last couple of seasons regarding Teresa and the rest of the goils, it’s a bit shocking to see her palling around with Jacqueline, Kathy and Melissa. These women could teach warfare classes at West Point (and Andy Cohen, call me if this is a series spin-off idea you’re into!). Yet, here they are, all smiles and gold lamé stretch pants at NYC’s Dylan’s Candy Bar store. On the books, it was to promote Kathy’s new “Cannoli Kit” project (they are all hawking something, aren’t they?), but we imagine it probably made good tape for Bravo, too. [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
Sunday night can’t come soon enough. “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion part three is going to be, to use this year’s most over-used word, EPIC. Joe Gorga and Teresa Giudice are going to be screaming at one another about hurting “Mommy and Daddy” and Jaqueline’s going to intervene at the exact wrong moment. Good god, I can’t wait.
Since we have a few days to kill til we park it on the sofa and watch with wide eyes as a real family is decimated before our very eyes, let’s talk about the latest Joe Giudice rumors. And, yeah, I’m being a little too magnanimous calling these cheating allegations “rumors” because, come on, everyone knows he’s screwing around behind Teresa’s back. The latest news is that he’s in a committed relationship with a 25-year-old college student. Read more…
Caroline Manzo predicted the demise of Joe and Teresa Giudices’ marriage on ”The Real Housewives of New Jersey” recently, but things may not be playing out the way she thought. Oh they’re likely headed for divorce all right, but it may not be just because he ruined them financially and ends up in jail. Rather it seems that Juicy Joe is caught up in a juicy scandal that no one saw coming.
According to The Huffington Post, Joe has been caught in a scenario that pretty clearly indicates he’s cheating on Teresa – on tape by Bravo. He wasn’t actually caught in the act (thank you, Jesus), but talking to a mystery women in an intimate way. He calls Teresa some pretty ugly names in the process too. Read more…
Is there anything more frightening than seeing monstrosity Teresa Giudice, she of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” abomination, posing behind a DJ deck? Can you imagine the horrible music she’s fake-playing right about now? In reality, Giudice was the paid hostess for a party at Gypsies, the nightclub of the Mount Airy Casino.
But sadly, the rest of the stars in this gallery have actually attempted to play DJ for real.
The other day, I was stuck in a k-hole (aka a hangover) and watched, like, 7,000 episodes of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” I then topped it off with some “Mad Men” and had a revelation: Teresa Giudice of “RHONJ” — she of the bankruptcy troubles and the ostentatious house, and the feud with sister-in-law Melissa Gorga — is just like “Mad Men”‘s meanie mom Betty Draper! They’re both grown ass children who try and manipulate everybody around them. Don’t believe me? Check out this handy comparative chart.
Well, hallelujah, today just got elevated by the curious joy of Teresa Giudice’s mysterious three-head! Yes, Andy Cohen’s fave Jersey girls return to Bravo on Sunday, April 22, presumably with more red wine, drama and pasta fagioli. This season, it looks like some of the bad blood that played out at the season three reunion show between Teresa, Jacqueline and Caroline continues to deliciously fester. Yay, grown women! Check out the preview after the jump!

Since part one of the “RHONJ” Reunion Special aired, I’ve been obsessing about what mysterious thing went down between Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita (and by proxy Caroline Manzo). Amelia and I traded a series of late night texts about it. The transcript, after the jump.

Yesterday, we introduced you to our new favorite “Real Housewives” cast member, Joe Gorga, aka Teresa Giudice‘s younger brother. So far this season, he has been stealing scenes from both his sister and his wife, new housewife Melissa Gorga. Then came last night’s Halloween episode, in which Joe dressed up as … Snooki. “You’re really a Jersey chick now, honey. You look like your sister,” says Melissa watching him slink into a gold, leopard-print dress and put on a pouffy wig. Then Joe looks Melissa up and down and says, “I look better than you as a woman.” Classic. Keep reading »
Mark your calendars for May 16, folks. That’s when “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns. Well, at least a few of them anyway—Dina Manzo called it quits midway through last season and our favorite skin suit wearer, Danielle Staub, was ousted after last season, too. But there are some new ladies filling in their slots. First there’s Melissa Gorga, who just happens to be Teresa Giudice‘s sister-in-law. Melissa is a mother of three who wants to be a pop star and has been recording tracks with producer Keith Boles. “It’s feel good music,” he explains. The second new housewife is Kathy Wakile, who happens to be Teresa’s cousin. Kathy is a mom of two and is super into throwing parties. Apparently, we have her daughter’s belly dancing themed Sweet 16 to look forward to.
But just because these new housewives are family doesn’t mean things are going to be all lovey dovey. Keep reading »
