April 11, 2013 – Teresa makes guest appearance at Kim D’s Birthday Bash at Il Tulipano, Cedar Grove, NJ [Comment from attendee: "The event was not what I expected. Very unprofessional. Rude girl a 'Maria' telling us to move to another table after we had sat at our assigned table for 60% of the time we arrived. They lied & said there was an error in the seating, but the truth was their friends wanted to be seated there with the 'in crowd'. We were banished to an obscure table & didn't get our main course as we had ordered it at our original table. The person in charge, a 'Maria', was threatening & said we would move when she got the boss. Getting up & moving was embarrassing for us. She was on the microphone during the fashion show & actually said the 'F' word. The guest appearance by Teresa was short, she arrived late, her posing time with the few fans there was cut short. People there were mostly their personal friends. A tacky event. I will say that Teresa & Kim D were polite. However, I now understand why Jersey Girls get a bad reputation. I am a Jersey Girl & proud of it. I do plan on trying for a refund, no dinner, not right."]

The Sparkling Event
‘Housewife’ Helps Raise Money for Autism Research
September 21, 2012
Jacqueline Laurita and her family hosted a tricky tray fundraiser for Autism Speaks. Laurita’s son Nicholas was diagnosed with autism earlier this year.
Hundreds of people attended Sparkle Speaks, a charity tricky tray at The Brownstone in Paterson Thursday. The event raised money for Autism Speaks, an international autism science and advocacy organization.
The Sparkling Event, an event planning agency run by Candice Laurita and Cristina Granelli, Jacqueline’s nieces, organized Sparkle Speaks.
‘Glitz, Glam and Gifts’ Benefits Sandy Victims
November 27, 2012
‘Housewife’ Wakile, other local business owners donate items to victims of storm and offer holiday shopping with The Sparkling Event’s Glitz, Glam and Gifts event.
Hundreds of North Jersey shoppers got a jump on their Christmas shopping and raised money for charity at the same time.
The nearly all-female crowd flooded The Brownstone in Paterson for Glitz, Glam and Gifts, The Sparkling Event’s annual holiday shopping event.
Dozens of vendors showcased their best products. They included “Real Housewives of New Jersey” Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita.
“It’s a fun night out and gives people a chance to have some fun, network a little, and showcase their business,” said Candice Laurita, co-owner of The Sparkling Event. “We’re moms and we all want a chance to help each other, and the community, out in some tangible way and this is a great way to do that,” Laurita said.
Laurita held Sparkle Speaks in September. That event raised money for Autism Speaks, an international autism advocacy organization.
Wakile showcased cannoli as the inaugural desert in her new Dolce Della Dea dessert collection.
“There are so many people who were down and out, who still are, but the community, and the entire state, has really come together after Sandy and its wonderful to see how resilient everyone is,” Wakile said as she filed cannoli with her daughter Victoria. “It’s been amazing to see and if we can help people out with something like this, that’s wonderful.”
During season 5, the others will have much less to promote:
Melissa has her auto-tuned music; Kathy has her cannoli kits, and the Lauritas will be exploiting their son and autism so that they can sell more blk.
UDPATE December 20, 2012: Melissa is co-writing a book, “Love, Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage,” to be published by St. Martin’s Press in Fall 2013.
