Are Season 5′s ‘Friends of Housewife’ Teresa Guidice Really Her Friends?
December 29, 2012 183 Comments
Bravo recruited three new “friends” — Kim DePaola (paid), Jennifer Dalton (paid) and Elvira Grau (unpaid?) — for Housewife Teresa Giudice to supposedly even the playing field in season 5, but are they really her friends?
Below is a photo of Jennifer Dalton fraternizing with the enemy: pictured are Kathy Wakile, Jennifer, Jennifer’s good friend Misa Hylton Brim, and Melissa Gorga.
Jennifer Dalton was featured on Bravo’s “Pregnant in Heels”. Teresa was at her baby shower earlier in 2012, along with Lil Kim and Elvira Grau (see photo below). Jennifer is best friends with Lil Kim (a music industry connection which Melissa surely would like to cultivate), and Lil Kim is the godmother of her daughter Reign. Jennifer is presently a real estate agent with Sotheby’s.
Elvira Grau is owner of Space Odyssey where Teresa held parties for her children’s birthdays and where Bravo taped a Hurricane Sandy fundraising event on November 30, 2012. Pictured below are Jennifer and Misa at that fundraising event, which Joe and Melissa Gorga also attended (see photos at the end of this article) — Teresa and Kim D were also there.
We already know about Kim D’s shady dealings, and things are looking even more suspicious with the recent revelation that Jennifer Dalton’s good friend Misa Hylton Brim visited Melissa Gorga at her home on December 12, 2012 (in other words, Teresa’s new ‘friend’ Jennifer may have an alliance with Melissa that is unbeknownst to Teresa):
On Christmas day, Teresa tweeted a photo of herself with Elvira Grau and Jennifer Dalton (and Jennifer’s baby Reign):
Enjoying friends w/ my home made deserts! @partyelvira @flygirljennifer pic.twitter.com/B8vwnv0q
On Christmas day, Jennifer tweeted the same photo plus a photo of herself and her baby in front of Teresa’s Christmas tree:
@Teresa_Giudice @lil kim, Reigns first Christmas at godmommy Kim’s house and finished the night at Auntie Teresa’s! pic.twitter.com/ywXS6RxF
@Teresa_Giudice @PartyElvira had a great time tonight, great Christmas with Teresa’s amazing food!!!!! Still stuffed! pic.twitter.com/u94h3WEn
On Christmas day, Cherokee Rose Marie (@KatStacksDeport) tweeted Teresa, warning her to “watch your back” because Jennifer was going to “stack her in the back” like the rest of them since Jennifer’s good friend Misa (Sean Comb’s ex and her baby’s daddy) had been at Melissa’s house two weeks earlier:
@Teresa_Giudice @PartyElvira @flygirljennifer , teresa watch ur back jennifer’s bestfriend is down with melissa, they took pics at her house
@flygirljennifer @Teresa_Giudice @PartyElvira yeah right jennifer here’s pic of ur bff misa at melissa’s crib http://pics.lockerz.com/s/268651838
@flygirljennifer @Teresa_Giudice jen and lil kim are misa’s friends, misa is puffy comb’s ex n baby mama, jen will back stab like the rest
Jennifer, on the defense, responded to Cherokee Rose Marie, saying she had just met Melissa but was a long-time friend of Teresa:
@KatStacksDeport @teresa_giudice @partyelvira 2nd Misa has NEVER styled Mellisa and Teresa is a long time friend ❤her! Just met Mellisa.
Jennifer also tweeted that Misa was at Melissa’s house because of her, and that Teresa knew about it:
@KatStacksDeport @teresa_giudice Misa was at mellisas because of me, which Teresa knows about. Watch and see, I brought Misa with me my fri
Jennifer also confirmed she is friends with both Lil Kim and Misa:
@KatStacksDeport @teresa_giudice @partyelvira again, Misa is not my BFF @lil Kim and Allison are! Misa is a good friend tho
@KatStacksDeport @teresa_giudice @partyelvira please get your facts straight! 1st I have two best friends @lil Kim and Allison.
Not sure what to make of these tweets from Christopher Manzo about Lil Kim back in February 2012:
Bravotv: First up is Ladies Night, and then a little Crush On You and rounding it all out with our personal fave, Magic Stick. @lilkim #nowplaying

Jennifer’s best friend Lil Kim has been a guest on Andy Cohen’s WWHL show:
See shots of Lil’ Kim and Willie Geist getting their groove on with Andy Cohen at the Bravo Clubhouse:
Lil’ Kim tells Andy what she thinks about Nicki Minaj:
Bravo hired “friends” for Teresa — Kim D and Jennifer Dalton — who already had connections to BravoTV, which makes you wonder where their allegiance lies (with Bravo and not Teresa).
Another one of Teresa’s friends for season 5 is Elvira Grau, owner of Spacy Odyssey (pictured above with Teresa and Jennifer and pictured below in the first photo on the left with both the Gorgas and Wakiles) — it seems she is not an official “friend of housewife”, which could mean she is a genuine friend to Teresa (since she is not paid or under contract to Bravo). However, you have to wonder why she was at Bravo’s Pregnant in Heels baby shower for Jennifer Dalton.
Elvira exclusively told RadarOnline.com on December 28, 2012, that she’s going to be squarely in Teresa’s camp if any of the other women want to cause trouble with her friend:
“We have been friends because we’re both comfortable with each other as we are, not jealous or insecure,” the party planner said about her relationship with Teresa.
“I would absolutely defend Teresa against the other woman,” Elvira told Fox News Correspondent Tom Murro.
“I have zero loyalty to anyone on the show except Teresa because I simply don’t know them,” New Correspondent Tom Murro tells us she revealed to him.
“We both have families that we love and that’s priority over anything else.”
“She’s been a great supporter of my business Space Odyssey and I’ve hosted all her girl’s parties!”
