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.

Last night’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” was highly entertaining, if oddly off season. (Am I the only one who has a hard getting into the Christmas spirit when it’s 90 degrees out?) I was highly amused when Jacqueline joked as she set her table for a dinner party, “Teresa’s flipped a table and Joe bangs on tables. I don’t know why these tables take so much abuse from them! One day they’re gonna fight back.” Oddly, they didn’t. But during the shindig, our favorite new housewife—Joe Gorga—put on Jacqueline’s glittery bodysuit and did high kicks, on a dare from Albie. It’s the second time he’s rocked drag on the show. “Am I supposed to put that back on when his balls are flopping around in there?” Jacqueline asked, watching him. And his wife Melissa added, “I’m so not having sex tonight.” [NY Daily News] Keep reading »
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 »
I was scared to watch the new season of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” sans Danielle Staub. I just didn’t think it could possibly be any fun without her and her delusional paranoia. Man, was I wrong. The first episode, which included a “West Side Story” style rumble at a Christening, made the episode where Staub’s weave got ripped out look like child’s play. And a new star emerged. Only he’s not a housewife — or even a woman for that matter. Keep reading »
There was a moment on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” last year where Danielle Staub takes a few friends to a pole dancing class. The auspice of this activity was that she felt so violated about the release of her sex tape that she needed to do something to feel good again. She played shy at first, but as the scene progressed it became increasingly clear that Danielle was not at all feeling self-conscious or out-of-control of her sexuality. In fact, she took the opportunity to show of some of her former professional moves, including going spread eagle while staring down the male friends she brought to watch. “Always engage,” she said, taking over for the teacher, “And then suggest.” Shy? Please.
Well, apparently Danielle’s pole confidence has led to a new career. Danielle has now signed a three-year contract with Scores Gentleman’s Club in New York. Keep reading »
