Kim D is Jacqueline Laurita’s Friend Not Teresa Giudice’s; Teresa’s Storyline for Season 5 is That She is Trying to Breakup the Manzo and Gorga Marriages

According to Chris Stark’s (@stark3923) source on December 4, 2012:
Last night at the filming for the Posche Fashion Show, they roped off several spots at different times so Kim, Teresa, Penny, etc. could have their “set up chats”. My friend could not hear what exactly was said but someone was upset, and this happened a few times. Later they saw field producer Todd go after Penny and chase Penny outside to her car. My friend followed and could see but not hear… Something went down that made Penny LEAVE. They said Penny was mic’d. Conversations involved Bravo payments to Penny and Kim. Conversations involved Albert cheating. Conversation involved Melissa cheating with bulldog.
Per Todd in production, Kim DePaola, with the help of Penny Drossos, is being paid to expose Albert Manzo and Melissa as cheaters, and the edit will make Teresa look bad again. Teresa needs to stop trusting Kim D because she is not her true honest friend. Kim D is using Teresa for a storyline — her sole purpose is another “bring Teresa down story arc.” Teresa’s storyline is about her relentlessness” in trying to destroy Melissa Gorga and in her attempts to destroy Caroline Manzo by exposing Albert as a cheater. Kim D told Bravo she could “deliver” and make this whole Melissa cheating/Albert cheating blow up in Teresa’s face… again. The truth will never come out because it’s all a fake story line… again. Penny does not want to sell out Teresa to Bravo — it is Kim D not Penny who is being paid and has a major motive. Penny wants to help Teresa but Kim D and the Bravo producers are in cahoots. Teresa will look like she is trying to bring Melissa down, and now also Caroline and her marriage, out of spite and revenge. Caroline has a contract with Bravo, and her sons have a separate contract with Bravo, and Bravo will not let Caroline or her family look bad at all. Bravo is filming and having Kim D and Penny go up to Teresa and say things like: “Do you want to know about your brother’s wife?”… and tell her that Caroline Manzo’s husband cheated on her, and that Penny knows all the scoop on Melissa and Albert through the salon that Robert Polumbo used to own.
The Posche Fashion Show was held at the Brownstone on October 2, 2012, but a second “holiday” show was held on December 3, 2012 at another venue, the Bottagra, so that it could be taped for season 5 of RHONJ.
The only cast member to attend the season 5 holiday PFS held on December 3, 2012, was Teresa — this is because Bravo asked Kim D to approach Teresa on camera to tell her about Melissa being a cheater. Teresa, the good employee, is cooperating with Bravo. Her storyline, whether she knows it or not, is that she is out to breakup Joe and Melissa’s marriage. This is how season 4 ended, and Bravo is continuing the storyline even though more than a year has passed since the PFS season 4 finale where Bravo setup Teresa to take the fall for outing Melissa as a stripper [it was Kim D who did that, but she couldn't have done it without Penny Drossos, who is the one that knows the people from Melissa's past -- see photo below of Penny, Jennifer Dalton and Teresa from the season 5 PFS taped on December 3, 2012].
In season 5, Teresa will continue to be on the outs with her brother and SIL, as well as Jacqueline and Caroline, although Caroline asserts that she will be civil toward Teresa. However, to stir up drama between Teresa and Caroline, and to make Teresa look like the bad guy while Caroline is trying to be civil, Bravo is having Kim D out Albert as a cheater by bringing up this topic to Teresa on camera. To get the conversation on camera, Bravo has to have one of the housewives broach the subject (or a ‘friend of a housewife’ bring up the topic on camera to the official housewife).
Kim D is really Jacqueline’s friend — both admitted they talk every morning for an hour or more. However, in season 5, Kim D will be presented as Teresa’s friend, with the two of them out to expose Melissa’s secrets.
Bravo cleverly setup Kim D as Teresa’s friend for the season, knowing they could use Kim D to put the blame on Teresa for seeking revenge on Melissa and Caroline (just like they used Kim D to put the blame on Teresa for the setup at the season 4 PFS finale).
Bravo doesn’t need Teresa to out Melissa or Albert — they could have Kim D bring up the topic in front of any of the other housewives — but they want to characterize Teresa as vengeful. Kim D could have brought up these cheating accusations on camera in Jacqueline’s presence since she is better friends with Jacqueline than she is Teresa — just like Kim D brought up the accusations about Melissa being a former stripper in Teresa’s presence.
But Bravo is featuring Kim D as Teresa’s friend rather than Jacqueline’s. All the photos from events show Teresa with Kim D — Jacqueline and Caroline didn’t even attend the holiday PFS. Jacqueline and Caroline also didn’t attend the Hurricane Sandy fundraising event at Space Odyssey which everyone else, including Kim D, attended.
After what the cast did to Teresa and Juicy in S3, S4 and the S4 reunion (and in their blogs and tabloid interviews) — accusing Juicy of cheating on her — it’s understandable that she would want to expose Melissa as the real cheater, but Teresa will definitely be portrayed as the vengeful SIL trying to break up her brother’s marriage. It’s all for the ratings, for sure.
Melissa always claims to be the one making the effort and that’s she tired of trying with Teresa, but her blogs from season 3 say differently.
In Melissa’s very first Bravo blog, No Fakers, on May 16, 2011, she said:
I wanted nothing more than to have her as my third big sister. I tried really hard in the beginning with her, but she was impossible. She was always insulting me or putting me down. And when I would get upset she would say, “God, you’re so sensitive.” No, I just want to be respected, that’s all. You will see this play out as the season goes on. Again, I will say that I wanted nothing more than for her to be a big sister to me. Wishful thinking?
According to a Fame-Whorgas’ source:
When Melissa and Joe were first married, Teresa tried with Melissa but Melissa would come to Salon La Chateau Allure and badmouth Teresa, and she would talk about how she avoided Teresa’s calls and how she made excuses not to hang out with Teresa, and she would always complain about her.
Teresa said she tried to have a relationship with Melissa, even making her Gabriella’s godmother, but Melissa didn’t reciprocate — apparently she didn’t need another sister since she has two blood sisters already. Teresa wanted Melissa to treat her like a sister, but Melissa had no intention of doing that.
During episode 6 of season 3:
Teresa in her TH: “We’re going down this crooked road because of the poison his wife’s given him.”
Teresa to Joe: “She’s a cold person… I’m not saying she’s a bad person. She just pushed me away and I got away.”
During the premiere of season 3, at Melissa’s home, she tells her sister Lysa, while she is helping the family get ready:
“Teresa never had sisters, so she doesn’t know how to be a sister,” Melissa says.
During season 3, there is a very memorable exchange between Teresa and Melissa:
Melissa, talking to Lauren about her problems with her brothers, says, “I would die without my sisters, die.”
Teresa, clutching a big glass of wine, overhears this and says, “I got married and it was like, ‘No more brother’.”
Melissa: “You have a sister, I’m over here. Hello, I’m your sister.”
Teresa: “Well, yeah, you always said, ‘I have sisters.’”
Melissa: “You can be my sister too.”
Teresa: “I’ll do it then.”
Melissa: “Wake up and smell the coffee.”
Teresa: “You wake up and smell the coffee because I tried.”

Teresa is no dummy. She’s not an intellectual, but the woman is by no means dumb. There is no way she would willingly allow herself to be the so-called sacrificial lamb for a THIRD season if it bothered her to do so. Or unless she is being handsomely rewarded for it. If it does truly happen again, I’m going to have a difficult time mustering up sympathy for her. It goes back to the “fool me once, shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me” philosophy. And it can be applied to both Teresa with regard to the other four and Teresa’s fans with regard to Teresa (if she is and has been going along with this the whole time). I have more thoughts on this but I’ll put it in a separate post…
Teresa may be seeking a little revenge after the very personal details, true or not, that Bravo and her cast mates put on camera about her life for more than two seasons, but will it backfire on her?
