The Root of the Problem Between Dina Manzo and Caroline is Jacqueline Laurita (Updated November 9, 2014)

October 6, 2013

The simple truth about the feud between Jacqueline Laurita and Dina Manzo:

1. Dina didn’t like Jacqueline to begin with because Chris was engaged to Dina’s friend, Jen (the nail girl at the Nisha Spa, still owned by Dina’s ex-husband and Lexi’s father, George Hadjiapostoli, along with his current wife), when Chris knocked up Jacqueline in 2001 on one of his trips to Las Vegas.

2. At the table flip dinner in the final episode of season 1, The Last Supper (click here for the video), Jacqueline spilled the beans about who revealed the book that Danielle’s ex-husband wrote, Cop Without a Badge, claiming Dina was the one who brought it to the salon, Chateau in Franklin Lakes, to show it to everyone, and she told Dina she wasn’t going to lie for her anymore. Then Jacqueline started in on Caroline about Dina, saying: “You came to me and you were like, ‘I know what Dina is, don’t you think I know what she is, I know.’ You were like, ‘Feel sorry for her, feel sorry.’ How could I feel sorry for her when you know what she is? You said you knew too (Caroline tries to interrupt her but Jacqueline continues with a sly grin, pointing at Caroline), and your husband said he knew.” Earlier, Jacqueline had screamed at Dina: “The whole town knows about you!”

3. Jacqueline implied during the season 1 finale that Dina had a business arrangement, not a real marriage, with Tommy (who cheated on her both before and after their marriage) and that Tommy agreed to marry Dina on camera for VH1’s ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding’ to help launch her reality TV career. For Al and Tommy, The Brownstone would be prominently featured as the event facility for the wedding, which would lead to an increase in bookings, so Tommy’s (and Al and Caroline’s) motivation was to boost revenue for the family business. The VH1 wedding special was taped in 2005-2006 and aired in 2007, which was the same year Dina signed her Bravo contract for RHONJ, so it did launch her career. The RHONJ casting story is that Dina and Jacqueline were chosen for the original cast, then Dina recruited Teresa, and then Jacqueline suggested two other mutual friends. When the two other friends dropped out, Jacqueline suggested Caroline, and production found Danielle Staub when they were scouting the Chateau salon in Franklin Lakes. Tommy, who played his part by marrying Dina on camera, wanted nothing more to do with reality TV and declined to participate in RHONJ, but Al decided to make some cameo appearances to help promote The Brownstone.

4. Sometime in 2008, Jacqueline told Danielle that Dina had forged Lexi’s dad’s signature on a contract, which gave permission for Bravo to tape her, and this is why Caroline went off on Danielle during reunion 1, while Dina pleaded with Caroline to stop.

5. Dina threatened to quit RHONJ unless Danielle was fired but the rest wouldn’t stand in solidarity with her, so she left on her own in the midst of taping season 2. Dina told Life & Style in July 2010: “My ex husband was well aware of Lexi’s involvement in the show. She would often call him with details after a day of shooting.” However once the show aired and her ex saw the content, he allegedly decided he wanted Lexi off the air. It was this moment, according to Dina, when Danielle began to spread malicious lies in an attempt to turn Lexi’s dad against Dina. “She told my ex’s family that I’d actually forged his signature on the contracts, which I did not,” Dina said. “She knew she could work on his emotions, so she supplied him with every phone number of everybody he’d need to follow through with a lawsuit — contacts at Bravo, our production crew and her attorneys.” According to Dina, her ex-husband didn’t believe Danielle’s tales and never went forward with filing a lawsuit. “She thought more would come of it, like I could lose custody,” Dina explained. “She just wanted to hurt me.” Dina also told Life & Style that Danielle continued to spread lies about her, and she felt as if she had no choice but to quit the show. “Now she’s telling people my ex-husband is suing me and that Bravo fired me because of that,” she claimed, adding that Danielle has been spreading new lies that Dina’s current husband, Tommy, left her and lives with a younger girlfriend. “Tommy lives right here with me and is happy as a clam,” she said. “Things are better than ever.”

6. In September 2010, Jacqueline passed along a story to blogger Lynn Hudson that Project Ladybug did not have 501(c)(3) status, causing problems for Dina just as her charity was getting launched.

7. Dina had her gay brother’s wedding lined up for her HGTV show, and Caroline snagged it for Bravo instead for RHONJ season 4.

8. For years, Jacqueline has posted and retweeted negative tweets about Dina and has fed biased stories against Dina to bloggers and tabloids, often using gossip monger Tom Murro to disseminate her version of the feud; and Dina’s blood relatives, Chris and Caroline, have done nothing to stop Jacqueline.

9. After four years of refusing to make her family’s issues public, Dina broke her silence in Part 1 of the Season 6 Reunion Special (in her Bravo blog Dina wrote: “An incident happened at the reunion, and I won’t even give that person the attention they crave, but it set me off to tell my truth. Well some of it at least”). She told Andy Cohen that Chris contacted her after he heard about her divorce and they arranged to meet, but that lasted all of 15 minutes because Jacqueline insisted she be present. She also mentioned that neither Chris or Caroline attended her daughter Lexi’s graduation party and that she and Lexi were not invited to Lauren’s engagement party. Also, Dina implied that during season 1 and season 2 Jacqueline was manipulating Danielle Staub behind-the-scenes by telling her stories about Dina, which caused friction between the two. This is obvious when you watch the final episode of season 1, The Last Supper. Jacqueline screamed that she was told it was Dina who showed the book to everyone at the salon, and she exclaimed that the same person who told her that it was Dina also told Danielle that it was Dina. Dina yelled at Jacqueline: “You pretend to be her [Danielle’s] friend. That’s why you have to say this!” Jacqueline yelled back at her: “You brought it over to me!” Dina then stood up and, as she walked way, said to Jacqueline: “You are two-faced, two-faced; you’re not her friend (pointing toward Danielle).” Jacqueline shouted back at Dina, “You’re two-faced. You’re such a liar Dina! I’m not covering for you anymore!” As Dina responded back, “You never did,” Jacqueline continued her rant and screamed, “The whole town knows about you!” Caroline shouted: “Jacqueline, Jacqueline, enough!”

10. Caroline is turning on Dina now that Dina has addressed, on camera, her issues with Jacqueline (see November 3, 2014 update below). If Chris and Caroline don’t keep appeasing Jacqueline, she’ll do to them what she is doing, and continues to do, to Dina (and has done to Danielle and Teresa). With the business fraud hanging over his head, Chris needs to keep Jacqueline under control (remember him getting caught on camera lurking, keeping a close eye on Jacqueline). And Caroline, for Chris’ sake and the sake of his children, is siding with Jacqueline over Dina. Jacqueline keeps the “receipts.” She saves information such as texts to use as ammunition when she needs it. She knows where the bodies are buried. Jacqueline herself admits that she gets nasty when she perceives that someone has hurt her. Furthermore, Jacqueline wants her feud with Dina to be public so she can generate interest in the family fight and give herself a storyline for season 7. Because the Lauritas need the money, Chris must have agreed to sell-out his sister Dina for a storyline. Melissa, Kathy and the Marcheses also seem to have their eyes targeted on Dina for a storyline for season 7 (the Housewives have a mob mentality and tend to gang up on one person, and with Teresa going to the pokey, they see Dina as their best option), but Dina has stated she won’t be returning for another season. In her Bravo blog, Dina wrote: “Kathy and Melissa should not have challenged me about ‘family values’ if they don’t want to hear my side.” Dina also wrote: “I have no words for my sister on WWHL. She could have answered the no engagement question and left it at that. The lies that followed after were extremely hurtful and must have come from the sheer frustration of having to defend her position on the engagement party. All of you have seen I have ONLY ever said positive things about her no matter what I was feeling.”

UPDATE NOVEMBER 3, 2014: Dina Manzo made the video below, “Dina’s Truth, The Reunion Part 1,” and published it on youtube and her website on November 2nd.

Caroline Manzo was a guest on WWHL after Part 1 of the Season 6 Reunion Special for RHONJ premiered on November 2, 2014. After host Andy Cohen showed Caroline a montage from the reunion special of Dina’s comments about her conflicts with Jacqueline and Caroline, Caroline explained her point of view. The following is a transcript from Reality Tea.

“It’s true I didn’t invite her to Lauren’s engagement party, for good reason. First of all, I’m embarrassed, I’m mortified that I even have to say this, because you and I both know I have come at you hard when anyone tries to discuss this. But I have to defend myself now at this point. Over the past four, five years Dina has never attended any family functions at all [in fairness, there are photos of Dina with multiple siblings (see photo below) and her parents, so perhaps Caroline is referring to the functions held by the Manzo side of the family]. We’ve got nieces and nephews that are three, four, five years old that she doesn’t know. She didn’t go to my brother Jamie’s wedding [in fairness, of the 11 Laurita siblings, besides Jamie, only two, Caroline and Chris, attended, probably because they were on the cast of RHONJ for that season], babies were born, baptisms, graduations, birthdays. Not just me, not just Chris.”

Caroline said that less than ten minutes after Lauren got engaged, the first person she called was Lexi (Dina’s daughter). Lexi said to Lauren, “I’m so happy, my mom says congratulations.” Caroline continued: “That was in November; the party was in April. From November through April, not a word.”

Andy then said that it seems like Dina is willing to reconcile after she mentioned that she’d do a cooking show with Caroline. Caroline replied: “No, I’m a package deal. I come with everybody. You may have issues with somebody, but you don’t dismiss someone in your family. You don’t say, ‘I’m giving you a choice, I’m giving you an option. The only way you and I can have a relationship is if you cut someone out of your life.’ That’s my brother’s wife. Chris was given the same ultimatum. You can understand the gravity of that. This is a man that has a son that has special needs and you’re saying to him to leave his wife in order for you to have a relationship with him. The same little boy that she walked past two weeks ago at a party [if Dina hasn’t attended a family function in five years, how did she ignore Nick a couple of weeks ago at a family wedding?]. And how you cannot take that baby and hug him and tell him you love him, I don’t understand that. So I have to say I don’t want the cooking show. I don’t care about TV, I don’t care about what the papers say. I want my family back. And I have done everything in my power to make that happen and so have the rest of us. Dina has to grow up.”

Lauritas

Right after Caroline shared her perspective on the family feud, Jacqueline Laurita tweeted (among other things): “Wow! Caroline, I know how hard that was for you to speak up. I Love you! XOXO! Hope it can be put to rest now. Too much hurt for too long.”

For some reason, Kathy Wakile thought it was her place to jump into the Lauritas’ family conflict, tweeting, “You go Caroline, always telling it like it is!”

According to a source, Caroline and Jacqueline are not fans of the Gorgas or the Wakiles:

“The Gorgas and Wakiles are about…THEMSELVES…such famewhores. They came out of the gate thinking they would steal the show. What they really did was help Bravo turn the show from fun to dark. Caroline and Jacqueline don’t try to out-do Melissa or Kathy. Melissa is a piece of work. She and her sisters retweet blogs when they favor them. Teresa seemed to have had a point about the Marco sisters and their past. The Wakiles need Rosie as she is truly entertaining and at ease with the camera; Rich and Kathy, and even their kids, are too camera aware. Joseph Wakile is just like his father. At what age does a father of three kids stop acting like a horny teenager.”

Dina did not directly address Caroline’s rant on WWHL, but she did respond to a tweet about it from one of her followers: “I’d be quiet now my ‘sister.’ Don’t go there or I won’t be so quiet. I would text you but I don’t have your number.”

The next day, on November 3, 2014, Dina tweeted Jacqueline, telling her: “You are using your son against me and that is sickening. I was only slammed by those you try to manipulate. Smart ones see through you.” Dina then told Jacqueline: “Forget my name for real and move on to your next target. Get the psychiatric help you need. Now I’m DONE.”

Finally, Dina tweeted: “I’ve never taken this to social but I have my breaking points.” She also said: “So appreciate the support and kind words but let’s end this. I am moving on and will focus on my family that loves me!”

Jacqueline tweeted the next day with what a appeared to be a dig at Dina and her marital situation: “I think when people don’t have real love in their lives they become bitter and lash out at those that do. It’s a jealousy that’s hard to control.” She also tweeted: “I need to feel sorry for those people and understand their bitterness. Instead of getting angry, I need to just pray they find inner peace. It’s hard.”

Jacqueline followed up that tweet with some positive thoughts, despite being egged on by a blogger.

And later in the day, Jacqueline tweeted encouraging words to help reunite the Laurita family, but apparently she is also “favoriting” harsh tweets about Dina (and because Dina does not follow Jacqueline on Twitter, Jacqueline retweets other people that tag Dina so that it will show up on her timeline).

Commenters at Reality Tea (Holly, SicilyJo and TamG) made some astute observations on the Laurita family dynamics, at least for the siblings and in-laws pursuing careers in reality TV:

“Why don’t they ALL get off TV and quit discussing their dirty laundry in public? But no, they would rather sit around pointing fingers at one another on one hand and cashing their Bravo check with the other. Seems to me a simple solution instead of dragging this ‘feud’ around like a ball and chain. Much of it comes from their own famewhoring needs and the desire to be on TV.”

“Caroline is the biggest hypocrite of them all, and Andy is so afraid of her Don-Caroline-act to call her on it. When has Caroline ever admitted to hitting below the belt (i.e. predicting the demise of someone’s marriage, speaking negatively about someone’s MINOR children, plus she knows Jacqueline screwed up in defending Danielle)? Yet she wants someone else to admit to it? On the WWHL After Show, Caroline said Dina needed to get off Twitter. When has she ever said Jacqueline needs to get off Twitter? Chris and Caroline clearly enable Jacqueline to do their dirty work for them. Jacqueline has always continued to write about Dina on Twitter, even though Dina left the show to avoid a public battle with her family, and yet Dina is in the wrong for defending herself? Jacqueline uses her innocent-act to garner sympathy and an army against Dina, and yet Dina is wrong?? I’m not getting it.”

“What’s hilarious is that Caroline’s most famous line on the show is: “Let me tell you something about my fambly. We’re as thick as thieves.” LOL. Um, seems like nothing could be further from the truth. They are a grudge-holding, back-stabbing, gossiping mess. When your most famous line is a blatant, provable lie, it’s time to STFU.”

UPDATES OCTOBER 2014: See the last comment in this blog post for updates on the feud between Dina Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita. Also see the last comment in the blog post “Dina Manzo’s Feud with Jacqueline and Caroline Stems from Project Ladybug” for more 2014 updates.

Jacqueline Laurita confirmed on twitter that she was asked in March 2014 to tape scenes for season 6 — Bravo wanted Jacqueline and Kathy, along with their husbands, to talk on camera about the Giudices’ guilty pleas and sentencing, and the Lauritas and Wakiles were happy to oblige.

Bravo interviewed Jacqueline about her return to RHONJ in the episode that premiered on September 21, 2014. The following is what Jacqueline said about her relationship with sister-in-law Dina Manzo, which Bravo later removed from the published interview:

“Currently there is no relationship between us, but only because she chooses not to have one. It’s frustrating because I feel like it’s all petty, nonsense stuff, that all just seems silly and unimportant to me. I have other, more important things to focus on, although, I’m always open to reconciliation with people that are willing and sincere. My husband is probably the most hurt by Dina. Maybe one day we can heal as a family like the Gorgas and Giudices did. Miracles have happened on #RHONJ. All it takes is for both parties to want it at the same time and be sincere about wanting it. (That’s the key.)”

Melissa revealed in her Bravo blog for the season 6 finale that she decided to opt out of taping on the day the Giudices’ verdicts were announced (so apparently that was an option). She wrote:

“Even though there were many positive moments this episode, there was just such a sadness around it all. As you saw, I made the decision not to share our reaction to the outcome of the sentencing. It was an extremely hard day for this family, and I believe issues this serious are meant to be private. I know I’ve asked you before, but continue to pray for their family.”

Throughout season 6, Dina refused to discuss the Giudices’ legal issues.

“It was left open 4 me 2 come back 2 the housewives at some point but 2b honest I’m enjoying filming for #ManzodWithChildren 4 now #FunShow” – Jacqueline Laurita, Twitter, July 16, 2014

UPDATE FEBRUARY 21, 2014: When interviewed by Life and Style magazine on February 21, 2014, Jacqueline claimed her departure from RHONJ was because “I needed a little bit of a break, but we’ll see what happens from there.” She then took aim at her sister-in-law Dina Manzo by telling the magazine:

“I understand why Dina wouldn’t want me on the show: She doesn’t want to address family issues on-camera!”

The following is the original blog post, which was published on October 6, 2013.

On October 3, 2013, Jacqueline Laurita, through family friend Tom Murro, told RadarOnline that because of an old feud that goes back to season one, she has to be gone for Dina Manzo to return to RHONJ:

“Dina Manzo gave the producers an ultimatum – fire Jacqueline Laurita or I’m not coming back. Dina wants to come back but wants Jacqueline fired first, because she is afraid of fighting with her.”

After the story was published, Jacqueline tweeted:

“I don’t think Dina is trying to get me fired, but I know she doesn’t want to come on the show with me on it. Probably to avoid any conflict. Dina and I used to be really close when Chris and I first started dating and got married. We had a lot of fun together. Until the show. :0( “

Jacqueline also tweeted an indirect accusation that Dina is the reason the feud continues:

“Hopefully one day, the family will come back together. Like other families we know, everyone has to sincerely want it and try, or it doesn’t work.”

Jacqueline is the reason Caroline Manzo and Christopher Laurita no longer speak to their sister Dina. However, she told RadarOnline, through Tom Murro, that Danielle is the “real instigator of all the old fights” and asserted that she “always protected Dina until she dragged her into the season 1 finale, wanting her to lie for her while she cowardly let Caroline cover for her” (see transcript below):

“Jax stopped Danielle from exposing Dina so many times by refusing to film with her if she said anything about her. Jax told Danielle that if she said anything about Dina, she would not be friends with her anymore. Danielle always told stories about Dina and everyone else. Jacqueline always protected Dina until she dragged her in the season one finale wanting her to lie for her while she cowardly let Caroline cover for her.”

Danielle was asked via Twitter if Project Ladybug was the cause of the rift between Jacqueline and Dina, and she confirmed that it was:

Jacqueline, through Tom Murro, also told RadarOnline on October 1, 2013 that “Dina’s own marriage may be in trouble and her status will all depend on her own success” (Dina revealed in February 2013 that she and her husband had separated, but they may not actually be getting divorced). Jacqueline insulted Dina in the piece by saying that since leaving RHONJ Dina’s attempts at TV have failed, and that her only option now to make money so that she can leave her husband is to stay in the spotlight:

“If Dina makes enough money on her own then she can leave her husband; if not, she’s going back to him. She’s already attempted a few shows to further herself but they fell apart. RHONJ was her only option to stay in the limelight for now.”

Oddly enough, just before RadarOnline published their exclusive story, Dina tweeted on September 26, 2013 about Danielle, writing, “If it wasn’t for the ‘telephone game,’ I think Danielle Staub and I would have even gotten along – I hold ZERO ill feelings towards her”:

“Ahhh, I guess old episodes are showing … you guys are so sweet. I agree it’s more fun to see good times!  If it wasn’t for the ‘telephone game’ I think Danielle Staub and I would have even gotten along! I hold ZERO ill feelings towards her BTW.”

Jacqueline’s friend Tom Murro tweeted Dina for a response to the RadarOnline story, and Dina responded, vaguely implying that Jacqueline may not be returning for season 6, but she made it clear that she had nothing to do with it (Dina did not confirm or deny that she herself would be returning for season 6).

When Tom tweeted, “Your enemies are closer than you think,” Dina replied, “Yes, I’m well aware who my enemies are, and I send them love”:

Jacqueline, through Tom Murro, also told RadarOnline on October 1, 2013 that “Dina doesn’t want to be exposed for who she really is,” which could relate to the confusing conversation between Jacqueline and Caroline in the final episode of season 1 (Episode 7, The Last Supper) after the infamous table flip went down.

jac dina 4

In early November 2014, Bravo premiered a “supplemental edition” of season 1 episode 7, The Last Supper, “featuring previously unseen footage and commentary from the Housewives and their families, and reflection on the dinner dramas in the season 1 finale.” The following is a transcript of the conversation between Jacqueline and Caroline after Jacqueline told Danielle that Dina was the one who brought the book Danielle’s ex-husband wrote, Cop Without a Badge, to the salon, showing it to everyone (this conversation was not included in the premiere but made the “director’s cut” and was not in all copies of the season 1 finale on the internet) – “TH” means Talking Head, the interview/confessional that the Housewives give with producers which later are edited into the footage.

Jacqueline screamed that she was told it was Dina who showed the book to everyone at the salon, and she exclaimed that the same person who told her that it was Dina also told Danielle that it was Dina.

Caroline looked over at Jacqueline and shouted that she and Dina were together when they showed the book at the salon and at The Brownstone.

Dina yelled at Jacqueline: “You pretend to be her [Danielle’s] friend. That’s why you have to say this!”

Jacqueline yelled back at her: “You brought it over to me!”

Dina then stood up, and as she walked way, said to Jacqueline: “You are two-faced, two-faced. You’re not her friend (pointing toward Danielle).”

Jacqueline shouted back at Dina, “You’re two-faced. You’re such a liar Dina! I’m not covering for you anymore!”

As Dina responded back, “You never did,” Jacqueline continued her rant and screamed, “The whole town knows about you!”

Caroline shouted: “Jacqueline, Jacqueline, enough!”

During the exchange, Chris at least twice tried to stop Jacqueline from going off on Dina by gently squeezing her upper arm, but she ignored him, and he eventually gave up and put his head in his hand and then started biting his nails.

Teresa then addressed Danielle. Danielle told Teresa to “Pay attention, puhleeze!,” which sent Teresa into a rant, followed by the infamous table flip. After Joe escorted Teresa from the room, Caroline said to Jacqueline, “Jacqueline, Jacqueline, I told the truth. I showed the book. Dina wasn’t with me.”

Teresa returned to the room, sat back down, and shouted (while shaking her head and doing the “talk to the hand” motion): “Don’t fucking think that I’m fucking airheaded and stupid, because that’s what pissed me off. And then telling me to fucking pay attention. She doesn’t know who the fuck she’s fucking with, okay! Telling me to fucking pay attention! I don’t think so!”

Dina then tried to clear the air with Danielle, but Danielle wasn’t buying it.

Danielle TH: To be honest with you, my real opinion of Dina and her fake everything is that I really could give a flying ya-know-what about you!

Jacqueline to Caroline: I know you begged me not to tell the truth, but that’s not fair…

Chris: I don’t want to hear another word. Enough! Enough!… Danielle, you’re welcome in my home…

As things started to settle down a bit, Dina left the room and Jacqueline started to talk about her to Caroline (both Caroline and Chris tried to cut Jacqueline off, but she grinned and ignored them both).

Caroline: Jacqueline! … That’s my family.

Jacqueline: You came to me and you were like, “I know what Dina is. Don’t you think I know what she is? I know. You were like, “Feel sorry for her, feel sorry.” How could I feel sorry for her when you know what she is?

Caroline: Because you’re wrong.

Jacqueline: You said you knew too (Caroline is repeating, “Jacqueline, Jacqueline,” but Jacqueline continues with a sly grin, pointing at Caroline) and your husband said he knew.

Caroline: Jacqueline, you know who you’re hurting? My parents.

Talking head interviews:

Jacqueline in her TH: In the end I feel good that I told the truth as I saw it. I just hope that they can love and respect and accept me for the decisions that I make.

Dina in her TH: Jacqueline, obviously, was misinformed. Here’s my thing: you wanna stick up for your friend, that’s great, I admire that, but know what you’re talking about first.

Caroline in her TH: Has it affected my relationship with Jacqueline? Probably not. Has it affected Dina’s relationship with Jacqueline? Yes. Does it bother me? Absolutely.

After the table flip, with Jacqueline sitting in his lap, her husband Chris told Danielle that she was welcome in their home. Later, when Danielle was outside with her daughters, Danielle said, “See what happens to Dina when she messes with me — her own family (Chris and Jacqueline) turned against her on that one.”

GPM said on October 3, 2013 at 11:14 AM at FW:

I suspect Jacqueline may be trying to drum up interest in and lay a foundation for something similar to the stupid Teresa/Melissa controversy for Dina/herself should Dina return. The obvious problem with that scenario is that Dina’s whole cachet revolves around her Zen way of being. Jacqueline can’t fight with someone who won’t fight back. And if Dina were to fight back — which wouldn’t really sell in any case — she’ll end up losing her own reputation and fan base. I think people like the Dina/Teresa dynamic because they really are true friends — we not only sense it but we know Dina was there for Teresa after Jacqueline and Caroline beat her up on the deck and that she was also there for her in the Hamptons right after her arraignment. Right now Jacqueline’s about as popular as a member of Congress. She’s not only perceived to be a con artist (BLK, Susan B. Komen) with possible drinking and mental problems (tweets), but she’s also perceived to be the worst friend (Teresa, Danielle) and worst mother (Ashley, her exploitation of Nick’s autism) ever. E-V-E-R. If Dina doesn’t like Jacqueline, it only makes Dina look smarter and ahead of the curve! Lucy had a big career without Ethel, but without Lucy, Ethel slipped into TV history. Let’s hope Jacqueline’s TV career fades to black as well.

From what I gather from the rumors, Jaq got a pink slip. I believe this for many reasons. I think Kathy would have been fired also, but Bravo wants Rosie, so Kathy got demoted to friendship. I believe this because they made the Juicy and Rosie clips and people loved it. Bravo went from covering up things for Melissa to revealing things about her. Bravo did not edit what Wyatt Webb said about Melissa, and you have to wonder why. She downgraded to a rental for a reason. Bravo could have easily invested in maintaining their “mansion” — they knowingly threw money down the drain for her music and a book. I think it is possible that Danielle, Dina and Teresa obtained Bravo contracts that gives them some control over what is being filmed. If filming starts in December and the trial begins in February, Dina can be there to support Teresa. Teresa’s MIL and her mother have been filmed, and I do see Bravo continuing to film them and Teresa’s children no matter what happens with Teresa and Joe. Danielle may make an appearance if there is something she can reveal about Melissa that has not already been shown. If Joey and Melissa were not related to Teresa, I think they would have been gone as well, but Milania is a delight interacting with her cousins. People will want to see more of this. Bravo will want to milk everything they can from what is going on in Teresa’s life.

I am praying that Jacqueline is fired…can’t stand her vindictive and nasty behavior. I am banking the story that Dina got her fired was started by Jacqueline herself… just in case Dina goes back to the show, Jacqueline can throw a negative cloud around Dina. I see her fingerprints all over this one. Jacqueline is one nasty biatch. I remember when Lynn Hudson was alive (RIP Lynn), Jax would feed some pretty nasty stories about Dina and Teresa to her, then play miss innocent victim on twitter. The fact that Caroline says nothing and sits idly by while Jax does this to her flesh and blood sister speaks volumes about why Dina continues to stay away from Caroline. I think Caroline left the show before her shit could be exposed. She saw what Bravo did to Teresa’s family and was not sticking around to see that happen to hers. For that I can understand her. As far as Jacqueline… good riddance bitch.

    The minute that I saw that Radar online story about Dina I knew without a doubt that Jacqueline was behind this. Tom Murro uses Jacqueline for sourced info on the show ALL THE TIME…especially negative stories about Teresa. Jacqueline was behind a lot of bad blog stories regarding Dina…..and Caroline knew of ALL OF THEM. Dina was the smartest one of them all when she cut Jacqueline off….she knows “what Jacqueline is”. Caroline and Chris have protected Jacqueline in soooooooo many situation and continue to enable her. Jacqueline will do and say anything to destroy Dina….and Dina continues to IGNORE. That is the best way to deal with Jacqueline…..to just ignore her. The minute u show any attention to her baiting…..you will awaken the beast and she will go nuclear on her tweets and harassment.

    The best thing for Teresa is to have Dina back…..her “real” friend….someone who won’t set her up and talk shit behind her back. I am sure Dina will give Teresa advice and/or guidance but it won’t come from a condescending and self centered place like Caroline….because Dina actually cares about Teresa and her children without the underlining venom that C has. Dina will not come from a judgmental and instigating place like Jacqueline or a fake and insincere place like Kathy. Dina will have a good story line as she has just got separated…her daughter is getting ready to leave the nest, and she could be showing herself getting back in he dating pool. She has a new book and she can talk about all the events she plans and she has a real relationship with her assistants and her other siblings. She actually has a lot going on. Besides the exploiting stories about her son, what storyline does Jax have? Without Caroline or Teresa….Jacqueline is irrelevant…..no one would even notice she is gone after a few new episodes….same for Kathy. Dina hasn’t been on the show since season two and we are still talking about her.

      I agree with everything you said, and wonder what happened in Jaqs life for her to snap so completely. How did she land and keep someone that seems as sane and nice as her husband? The only answer I can think of is that he is somehow crazier in reality than his wife! Something is UP with that pairing because Chris seems like the only voice of true sanity on that show, and we know that cant possibly be true because of all the stuff going on behind the scenes, so whats the real deal there?

  6. Mel
    October 6, 2013 at 6:32 PM

    Forgot to add….the reason Jacqueline is sending these stories to radaronline is to throw a stink on Dina when she comes back. Jax is one vindictive B. I am pretty sure Dina knows it was her and continues to keep it moving. Tom Murro pretty much confirmed this when he said “your enemies are closer than u know” (paraphrasing). The sad part of this is the fact Caroline knows all the shiit that Jacqueline has done and said on blogs about Dina and continues to stand behind her. Yet Caroline and her posse don’t understand why D continues to be close to T. The hypocrisy of the Manzo clan is blearing. We can stand tall with your enemies….but u can’t hang with our enemies is their motto. Yeah….ok.

    • suedechik79
      October 7, 2013 at 3:50 PM

      The truth is probably closer to Caroline and her posse DO understand why Dina hangs out with Theresa, but C Manzo’s kids need to make a living so who cares about Dina? Caroline is a momma lion – her kids come first no matter what. We can fix things later, as Caroline always predicts will happen. This is all a big game so 40 years from now we can all sit back and laugh at what we all did. In her world, everyone has her attitude so Dina will come around eventually.

        If Chris won’t step up and put Jac in a mental ward where she can get help then IMO Dina should cut all the Lauritas and Caro out of her life.

        • October 7, 2013 at 1:07 AM

          Half of the siblings or mire are firmly in Dina!s side. Which is a source of real irritation to Caroline as she has to be in charge of how people think, feel, and behave and she has lost control. Whatever the original source if a rift between Dina and Caroline, Caroline stealing Jamie’s wedding for Bravo from her show, had a direct impact on the lack of success of Dina’s show, which probably would have been renewed for another season even though it was pretty awful, just because the first big gay wedding was such a coup and Dina would have decorated the hell out if it. That us why nobody was there except Chris, Caroline and Jax and nobody eke except the mother who of course does nit cut off her children and would naturally attend her son’s wedding no matter what .

            Come on Gessie didn’t you believe Caro when she said her family did not attend the wedding because of the short notice and some had to work? Just because she says it doesn’t make it true. Bravo had time to get an entire production crew there! Love how Caro demands her family issues are off limits yet screams about others. The fact that Dina has not reached out to bro Chris re: Nicholas is just disgusting in my opinion, all because of envy.

          Jac was pregnant with Chrs’s baby. At the time she was BFFs with his fiancée a make-up artist in Vegas whom Dina loved. Dina never forgave her brother for cheating on his fiancée and Dina’s friend, and can’t stand Jac for cheating with her best friend’s future husband. Caroline stuck with Chris not his jilted fiancée.

  8. October 6, 2013 at 7:11 PM

    With her children so entwined with chris Laurita, Caroline probably doesn’t want to hang them on the line – if there’s trouble with her relationship with Chris and BLK. how would that affect BLK and the boys? could get $$ nasty –

                Yes! This one was different. Teresa was more articulate and she held her temper surprisingly well. She wasn’t perfect because some things she was called out on, she couldn’t point out that it was Bravo or so and so. Like when Joe Gorga asked why she brought those people (Penny and Johnny) around? The truth is everyone knows them except Teresa but she couldn’t say it so she just made a face.

    OK, am I missing something? In the last conversation Fame posted between Caroline and WakyJax, what are they referring to about “what Dina is”. I’ve always suspected that it ment something more. Am I wrong? I’ve always liked Dina, but does she have something dark she is trying to hide? And why would Caroline say to Jax that she’s hurting her parents?? Danielle used to refer that she had dirt on Dina too. Did anything ever come of it? I would love Dina to come back regardless…missing the old rhonj. I won’t be coming back for next season unless it lightens up, and even then I won’t consider it “real” after all reading Fames awesome reporting.

    • October 6, 2013 at 9:27 PM

      Melissaver, I got the same thing out of J and C conversation. I don’t have a clue what Dina may be trying to hide. I think a lot of us have history we don’t want r family broadcasting, Jac needs to stop hurting family with her big mouth, no matter what the deal is with Dina.

    • embee
      October 6, 2013 at 9:53 PM

      I couldn’t come to a conclusion about what J was referring to either. Does anyone know?

      I agree with you, Gloria. The take-away from the scene is that Jacqueline was trash-talking Dina at that dinner, and making her husband and Caroline uncomfortable. She needs to go away, far away.

      • Sharon
        October 7, 2013 at 1:28 AM

        Wasn’t Jac mad at Dina cuz Jac got knocked up when Chris was engaged to Dina’s girl friend plus Dina would not invest in BLK? Besides Jac had bad and lied abt Dina’s Ladybug Charity PLUS Jac did not turn over the $18K from shirt sales that was earmarked for the Susan Komen cancer fund. Lots of reasons to hate Jac! Besides we know Jac is a nasty, materialistic bitch.

      I agree, what did they mean “what Dina is” ? Makes me think something bad being both Chris and Caroline were trying to shut her up. She said Al Manzo also knows “what Dina is” ??? My mind is thinking , what did she get around or something? Something very fishy about that whole convo.

      • Melissaver
        October 7, 2013 at 3:12 PM

        I agree, and I don’t think anyone has ever figured it out. I like Dina, but it looks like she got lucky that whatever “it” is wasn’t exposed. I think Jac was real close to spilling the beans, and that’s another reason there is such a split in the family.

        • Anonymous
          October 7, 2013 at 7:48 PM

          I’m just guessing, but I think Dina married Caroline’s brother for financial reasons. I think that’s what Jacko wanted to expose.

          • October 8, 2013 at 11:15 PM

            but if Dina married Al’s brother for financial reasons, how would that “hurt our parents” which Caroline was yelling at Drunk Jac? Sorry but I’m thinking escort or something. Has to be something bad that the parents would be ashamed of…maybe Dina revamped herself being on HW’s and Jac was jealous and wanted to call her out? I don’t know. I do like Dina and follow her on twitter and feel anyone can change their future but usually the past comes a calling. Maybe I’m just very jaded in my thinking, I don’t know.

    • October 8, 2013 at 11:32 PM

      Dina is very Zen. In my opinion Dina would never lie to cover Jac’s stripper past nor Al’s affair, if indeed he is having one. Caroline was just turning on her “smoke and mirrors” drama.

      I would love Dina and Danielle to come back. If those two would come back, I would have to watch the program again.

      • AnnieMarie

        • October 6, 2013 at 10:46 PM

          TB is the self-proclaimed “VICTIM” at this reunion! Penny and JTG victimized him, oh and Tre! What about all the victim’s he and his temper have made?

          TSIL was trying to get Caro on her “side” when Caro and Tre were “discussing” Tre’s blog she posted on her website. I think it was the blog where Caro said Tre didn’t life the horses leg. Caro was calling Tre a liar for writing in her blog that Caro and Al were miserable during the trip. I guess Caro doesn’t like being called a liar because she pointed and called Tre a liar. I think there’s a difference between thinking a couple is miserable (I think that’s more of an opinion) versus saying someone didn’t do something they did! The reunion ended with Rosie, The Gorga’s, Kathy and Caro telling Tre that she lashes out and goes for the jugular when she gets mad. Jaq did keep quiet, I wonder if she took a valium before she went on?

          I can’t stand TSIL and TB! I hope they read this because they seem to think that people who don’t like them are being told to write negative things about them because Tre is telling us to. I guess they think Tre sends out mass emails to us and tells us what were suppose to think/say about the Gorga’s? I don’t like the Gorga’s because their disgusting and went on international TV to hurt a family member. I wish they would get that through their thick (one bald the other weaved) head of theirs. It’s your actions/attitudes that make you despised, not that TSIL is a skank or TB sold his parents house, or lost their house, because he’s such a loser! They don’t get it and want Tre to make us like them, I guess?

          I will say that TSIL is going to hang herself with her snotty, slef-righteous attitude. Both of the Gorga’s are nothing but low life liars. They both call themselve’s ‘victim’s’ who need people to defend them when TB is the most barbaric one out of the bunch!

            TB seems to think Gia calling him a maniac is the worst thing to be called! His own wife calls him a psycho but that’s ok? TB goes for the jugular when he’s yelling around saying insulting things about his sister? He can say, “At least I don’t call my wife a c u next tuesday!” Yet, Tre writes Caro was miserable on a trip and that’s going for someone’s jugular? They can use that blog as a way to make a point at how Tre gets angry and loses her temper. I’m glad Caro is off the show. When she started in on Tre it was like the rest of the cast, besides Jaq, followed. I’m going to have to remind myself next week to see if TSIL asks Caro why she said that she (TSIL) wasn’t being truthful this season.

          Why does she have to do better?? What about TSIL? She gets another free pass? Besides, it has been said that TSIL whoring around is common knowledge in Jersey.

        • October 6, 2013 at 10:06 PM

          Dr. V is a famewhore with shitty credentials. Who gives a crap what she says. She is under bravo’s orders to bash Teresa. What I found interesting about the reunion, is that they all obviously read Fame Whorgas. Bwhaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Famey! How does it feel to influence the diologue on the reunion show. You may as well have been on the panel because you were the Pink Elephant in the room. Love You Famey, You rock!!!!!!!!!!!!

          p.s. Love that Teresa called Meho on her deal with Radar Online.

              Teresa mentioned a blogger confirming something and I just assumed it was Fame.

              • October 7, 2013 at 9:33 AM

                She did that also, but she mentioned radar online as having a deal with melissa to not print negetive things about Melissa as long she feeds them bullshit about Teresa.

                • October 7, 2013 at 2:14 PM

                  I know. She was cut off before she finished because it’s probably true. I was only talking about the part where she said something and they asked how she knew and she said a blogger confirmed it.

        • Rosalie Marie,
          October 13, 2013 at 1:50 AM

          That so called, “Dr. V.” came across to me as a sex therapist. There is nothing, Nothing professional about her at all. Frankly, I doubt she has a real title, real office (Oh, wait, she has an office located at her Home. Her Home? Hmmm) and maybe, just maybe, she’s a paid actress. She dresses like a hooker, she talks like trash, she sits like a whore. You tell me what she’s really doing in that homey little so called office? She is how she appears. A whore.

    I would give anything if Bravo would bring back Dina and focus on her and on Teresa. Caroline is on my last nerve, Kathy and Rosie are inconsequential, Jax is unstable and I could live without her on the show. I don’t like how Jaq flips on people and goes for the juglar. I could have lived my whole life without knowing Melissa Gorga exists – ugh. She and her smarmy husband gross me out. I wish we could keep their kids on the show and drop them.

    What was going on with the audio on the reunion. I only assume that they were resorting to thier ususal editing tricks. There were way to many dropouts in the audio to chalk it up to “a glitch”. I did get as kick out of seeing The Venitian portrayed the way it was. If you kmew the area it’s situated in you would get a chuckle..

    • October 6, 2013 at 11:03 PM

      I believe they weren’t glitches I think it was bravo covering for the others

      • October 6, 2013 at 11:44 PM

        Yes. You’d hear the audio click out mid-sentence. That was deliberate. I thought it was my tv the first time but then it happened at least twice after.

    Melissa is such a lying skank. I think she lied about her father’s affair and I’m glad Teresa called her out on never hearing that story until she told it on television. It made Melissa look like a dime store hooker. Also, she feels everyone is trying to get on the show for their 15 minutes by coming to take her down. Project much whore? That’s how you got on the show so it makes sense you think everyone is following your lead, you pathetic pig. God, I hate that woman.

        I hate the bitch. She is always the victim, when in fact she is the real troublemaker. She lies like a rug. All the personal information that baby joey is talking about came from here, which is where JTG and everybody else including me heard it. We have been talking about it for years. Notice how he didn’t fly into a rage about stealing his parents house because he knows it’s true. Also, glad the whore with the online degree called out the bowling ball for his rages.

    • October 6, 2013 at 10:16 PM

      notice how she backpeddles when that viewer question/ ok for messys sister to bash tre….she doesnt control her sisters. its ok for her sister to bash tre

      • October 7, 2013 at 1:15 AM

        But Tre controls and manipulates the bloggers and tweeters. sure. When Douchebag said I told you to get off twitter Teresa should have pointed out that she has never tweeted a negative thing about anybody .

    Jac is a snake (and a snake oil salesman). Teresa should not trust her as a friend – in the tweet below she is referring to reunion 4 and her saying that Teresa told her that Juicy cheated on her with the babysitter and his secretary:

    Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita
    Last reunion, although brutally honest, I said things that were not my place to say! I was not going there again.
    5:25 PM – 6 Oct 13

    I stand behind my blogs because it is obvious that the Lauritas were using autism as a platform to promote blk, but Jac is boasting that they were helping others, not themselves:

    Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita
    Only a few crazies! Lol! @Kim Novak What twisted mind would think ur exploiting ur son when ur raising so much awareness #stupidpeoplesuck

    https://famewhorgas.wordpress.com/2012/11/26/blkwater-and-autism-the-lauritas-use-autism-as-a-platform-to-promote-blk/

    Watch the final episode when they are giving Nicholas blk and talking about how much progress he’s made in just six months. They are suggesting that blk “is recovering” Nicholas. Jac cried in late September 2012 that Nicholas stopped saying, “I love you, mommy”, and voila!, by early 2013 there he is saying it (with captions) ON CAMERA.

    • October 6, 2013 at 10:51 PM

      From her Parenting Magazine blog in June, – “Hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Applied behavior analysis. Gluten-free diet. Specialized schools. Stem cells. Even camel’s milk. The list of potential treatments, remedies, and supposed “cures” for autism goes on and on. How do you know what to believe?”

      I think this is why they show Nicholas with BLK , so parents believe.

      Wow! This footage needs to be sent to the Federal Trade Commission. There are laws preventing supplement and other food companies from making medical claims. That is against the law. They were definitely suggesting that the BLK is helping Nicholas “recover” from autism. That, and the tweet last season that one of the Manzo boys received from an anonymous woman (which I believe was Jac) who said that she gave her autistic son BLK and he was improving.

      These people are sick for exploiting an autistic child like that for profit. It is so obvious that is what they are doing.

    from the reunion, it seems to me like its all getting to joe gorga, the lies the manipulations by his wife. he’s embarrassed and its all falling apart for him imo

    • October 7, 2013 at 1:41 AM

      I agree, Gorga needs to step back and look at his wife through new glasses. I think Melissa has been the real poison in all of this and he is finally realizing this is not all Teresa’s fault. When he finally wakes up and smells the coffee it very will could mean the end of their marriage. I have seen this same situation in my own family.

          • October 7, 2013 at 2:34 PM

            He doesn’t want to get sued? I don’t know. I’m wondering if it’s his mother holding the baby because the person on the left seems like an older woman. I don’t know how long these “informants” think they can drag this out because no one’s really going to care soon. Melissa’s 15 minutes will be up in another year or so.

            • October 7, 2013 at 4:02 PM

              I think it has maybe less to do with who the 3rd person in the picture and more to do with the dates. As best I can tell, that picture is date stamped 9 6 03.

                  At the bottom it says “9 6 03”. I know he mentions the year 2009 in his actual comment but have no idea what the picture is supposed to mean.

                    Also…..he obscured all 3 in the photo…..that may not even be Messy. Just supposed to assume it is. I’m getting bored of what seem like empty threats. I know the guy is ill and deemed a “nice enough guy” but if you don’t wanna be caught up in the drama anymore……then don’t. I realise he was attacked first but defend yourself with the TRUTH rather than a slight hint at what might be the truth. It wouldn’t surprise me anymore if TSIL got him involved in the first place to draw the whole senario out and to give her a chance to play the victim from every side imaginable. This Bulldog guy is just pissin’ me off now.

                    Next thing we know….Teresa put him up to it.

                    • October 7, 2013 at 7:56 PM

                      Hear, hear! Since he has no contracts, I can’t really see what’s holding him back (aside from maybe a defamation suit or something). I know he’s recovering and all but quit with the game playing. If you can’t be bothered to get involved, don’t tweet about the show.

                      The only thing in his favor for me is that they had to blank out his name which means he really didn’t allow them to use it. Which means they did ask him to use it.

                      I think his point of showing the dates is that in 2009 she was already with joe gorga so why would he have a photo of her (he also points out the cross necklace) from 2009 unless she was still seeing him in some capacity after she was with joe.

Its probably his nephew and that she might have been in the picture with the grandmother. Too be honest, is there a pix of sushi looker with long straight hair.

Once again he’s “planting a seed” that Tre is really the liar when it’s really him! Give it up, TB, your a little roided out liar with an anger problem! I’m sick of the Gorga’s constant digs at Tre! It’s been three season’s of their constant bashing of Tre and it’s monotnus! Too much has come out about the Gorga’s backstabbing, jealous ways. I have a feeling the Gorga’s are digging their own graves because they can’t let go of their hatred for Tre. TSIL appears to be in a pissy mood. I wonder if it’s because she had to answer some “uncomfortable” question’s viewer’s asked? Maybe she was upset that Tre was sitting next to her ol’ BFF and she was sitting next to boring Kathy?

    I’m going to copy and paste myself because I finally had a comment at 4am my time and we’ve moved on already!!! Props and Spects to those who have already read!!!!

    PS Jac Vs Dina = Missy Vs Teresa 2.0 and a poor reproduction at that. Yawn.

    Sackem says:
    October 6, 2013 at 3:22 PM
    Ok the Thunder from Down Under (aka the Aussie) has been a week behind all season. I just watched the finale and I gotta say I’m probably more confused and underwhelmed than I have been watching ANY other episode.

    So let me get this straight. Penny and the Greek came out and blamed Teresa for everything and are now blaming it on editing when we know their connection to Melissa is stronger than any connection to Teresa because of salon history. And everyone’s angry about the whole not going to hospital to see Mr Gorga when the Gorgas outted THEMSELVES on twitter.

    Joe Gorga who denied so many rumours confirmed them all by saying if they know all this, it must come from Teresa, reading between the lines as Jac insists we do. Hello, it’s called the World Wide Web – and we have friends in interesting place – see below.

    Caroline, who wanted nothing to do with Teresa is now saying that that you never cut ties, behaving like she put Humpty Dumpty back together again. Oh and PS, does have mob ties and police ties in a previously corrupt government AND has threatened to take the Giudices down. (Insert shot of smoking gun).

    Jac who said she wanted nothing to do with Teresa is relieved that Teresa “lies” have been exposed, ummm Mrs I say things when I’m angry and am compulsive on twitter but that just who I am *giggle giggle?

    And Missy, well she feels vindicated but is so gracious and never says a word about anyone because she’s good like that, can move on from it all.

    Teresa – honestly, for 90% of the series, was just nodding her head.

    She told them the only thing she is guilty of is enjoying hearing bad shit about Missy and I have to say, I don’t blame her. She reiterated that she was not behind any setup and yet, they are all hearing that she has admitted to everything they accused her of…. Missy, how was Wendy Williams? Did that feel good?

    So into this mix, we now know that Ashley/Ashlee/Ashleigh has been working for US Weekly, as a blogger – not on the front lines but certainly close enough to spill some beans. How does a kid with no credentials get a gig like that? Because she looks pretty? Further more we’ve discovered that the Wakilies have adopted The Greeks’ niece (a booker for Magazine TV aka talk shows) and nephew but says she doesn’t know them. “Who are these people?” Kinda makes you wonder who is the smiling assassin doesn’t it? It was the Professor in the library with the candle stick.

    SO recap. Melissa & Joe, Kathy & Richie get a spot on RHONJ by promising to take Teresa down. Missy talks to Danielle Staub spilling little details of their relationship. Meanwhile, the “family” is breaking bread with the accountant and lawyer who have had a hand in bringing Teresa’s financial situation to the attention of the government and getting angry at the Greeks trying to gain a spot on the show using the Gorga Method (aka bringing the gossip).

    Melissa & Joe have gone on international television telling the world that Joe cheats (bus ride – did you think that would hit the cutting room floor Joe “I never said a word to anyone about your husband cheating” Gorga? Calling his sister all manner of derogatory words, denying he put their parents in financial distress, airing family laundry for all and sundry to see, putting his nieces through hell – saying Teresa is a bad mother for talking in front of her kids, whilst talking in front of his kids. Telling the universe that her husband’s a bum, scum, beneath him, allowing Wackjob Wakilie carte blanche to say ANYTHING (LETS BURN THE BITCH) And yet Teresa is a terrible sister because she listened to other people say bad things about Melissa and kinda liked it?

    Let’s talk about Kathy for a moment. From the time she came onto our screens, it was a subtle bash. When we first meet her, she’s telling Teresa what a bad parent she is…. that she’s a recipe thief, that she has low comprehension skills, that her parents are fucking liars and cowards all the while standing by and allowing Icky Ritchie to say the most vile things about her blood, serving her purpose as the confirmer ie the person who validates the Gorgas claims. Yes, Teresa is a bad person for feeling good about hearing negative information about Melissa.

    How did Teresa’s financial issues come to light? Melissa, feeling good about talking to Danielle.

    All the things they blame Teresa for, the cheating, the stripping came to light on the blogs when Missy hit the stage. One of the perks of infamy. Missy, let’s not forget, was busy working the blogs before she got the Golden Hand Shake to embarrass her husband’s family on international TV.

    So, I’m confused. Because Teresa nodded her head silently, and said I’m sorry for listening when I shouldn’t have ( it was obviously Melissa and Kathy’s evil twins at the Fashion Show with Kim D and Monica) then we have resolution?

    Can I just suggest, ever so subtly, Melissa, had you not tried to usurp your sister inlaw, coveting her fame and earnings, none of this would have happened.

    It all comes back to five simple words: YOU CAME ON THE SHOW.

    Keep filling me in on the reunion – how many parts?

    • October 7, 2013 at 1:58 AM

      Great post, Sackem! TB said he apologized to Tre for calling her scum, 100 or 1000 times! Then Tre told him he didn’t. He was busted! Oh, Andy read a question a viewer asked about why, since TB is so wealthy, doesn’t he buy something better than “hair in a can”? He answered that question saying the canned hair spray thickens his hair. Juicy told him it looked like he still had all his hair and TSIL said it was thinning, promting TB to get upset that TSIL pointed that out. TB came on with an attitude and I’m sure his target was Tre! TB said the Lake George fight was the best thing that could have happened. Then he backpeddled and said he was embarressed about it, a little. Oh, did I tell you I can’t stand TB? Ewww… if he was my little brother I’d go “Oklahoma” on his butt!

      • October 7, 2013 at 9:45 AM

        He doesn’t have to apologize to her because they are brother and sister. How many f***cking times have we heard him say, “I just want her to admit she is behind it and apologize.” Andy DO YOU WATCH THE SHOW???????????????????????????? Why didn’t you ask him about that you f***ing IDIOT. IDIOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! One of these days we are going to see Andy on Page Six for texting his junk to a straight guy. It seems that he is turned on by trying to turn straight guys. Joey is this close to switching teams. And for those of you who worship Rosie, she is a fucktard.

      Kathy Wakile Did NOT Bring Johnny Karagiorgis And Penny Drossos On Real Housewives of New Jersey
      Posted on October 6th, 2013
      richard@rumorfix.com

      Johnny “The Greek” Karagiorgis and his wife Penny Drossos have been lightening rods on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, so cast members and fans are finger pointing to see who is to blame.

      The biggest rumor: Kathy Wakile brought them in because she was a friend of Johnny’s niece, Margio Mihalos.

      But Johnny Karagiorgis is going on record with RumorFix. He tells our Mr. Real Housewife exclusively, “This is not true. It’s sad that people fabricate what they assume is the truth. PR is my niece’s job and I respect her for not taking sides. In her business, she needs to be neutral and I understand that, but I’m not friends with all of her friends, as she’s not friends with all of mine.”

      He continues, “We might know of each others friends, but that doesn’t mean we’re also friends. I admire my niece and all of the things she has accomplished. She is far beyond her years in the amount she has managed to accomplish so far, but these rumors need to stop. We are not friends with the Wakiles and never were, and they did not bring us on the show.”

      There you have it- rumor fixed!

      • October 6, 2013 at 11:22 PM

        Whether they are friends or not is kind of beside the point IMO. Here we’ve had Kathy and Melissa saying they don’t know these people like they’ve just landed on the planet when clearly Twitter’s timeline suggests the family is on their radar. The thing that always made me scratch my head was why would the Greeks say the Wakilies called them the night before Moxie and that Rich tagged along for the meeting? Why the Wakilies? The Gorgas, yes, Caroline even, but why the Wakilies? False sense of comfort?

        There is an established link between Melissa and this niece. Yes, PR’s a big game but NJ from what I’ve been told here is a small place (right Saddle?) Surely they’d know who belongs to who PARTICULARLY as people love to name drop by nature in a proud way..

        • October 6, 2013 at 11:38 PM

          Do I think they were “friends” with the Wakilies? No. But I think they used the Wakilies as a neutral party due to the family relationships to negotiate peace. Big mistake on the Greeks part thinking it was real.

        • Karla
          October 6, 2013 at 11:40 PM

          I know! Everyone makes it seem like only Teresa knew about the Greeks just because there is a pic at an event of them together. I liked how Tre said you need proof. Then she links the website to prove that her other cast members knew about the Greeks way before.

          I wanted to hear Tre tell Melissa that Penny just wanted her 15 min just like her friend Jan. I know she did say she wanted to be a housewife, but I wanted Tre to say something like.. : “Oh so you can say and believe the reason Jan talked about you was because she wanted to be on the show, but you can’t believe that about Penny?” something like that. But overall I liked how Tre defended herself and had good points.

          • October 6, 2013 at 11:58 PM

            They all knew of the Greeks (and the Greek’s niece, Marigo, who booked them when she was a booker for Wendy Williams and now is one for Bethenny’s show).

            1. Melissa knew Penny through mutual friends;

            2. Kathy knew of them through her daughter’s friendship with their niece and nephew (who are rubbing shoulders with the Wakiles in an obvious attempt to share in their spotlight – even calling Rich, Kathy and Rosie uncle and aunt on twitter, and tweeting nothing to their real uncle John and aunt Penny);

            3. Penny said Caroline and Jacqueline had been calling her in March 2013, telling her that Teresa was trash talking her;

            4. Teresa and her makeup artist Priscilla know John Karagiorgis’ sister Vasilia (the mother of the niece and nephew who are the subjects of the article), tweeting photos of themselves with her in August 2012.

            Faux tweeted about this on September 29th:

            Faux Reality Ent ‏@FauxRealityE:

            So @RichardWakile used his daughter’s friendship with #JohnnyTheGrk’s niece to go see him, but “doesn’t know who he is?”

            @donna627lee @MarigoPR @WendyWilliams Now she books for Bethenny & besties with Wakiles, calls Rosie, Aunt Rosie.

            So let me understand, Bethenny’s booking girl who is #VictoriaWakile’s friend is #JohnnyTheGrk’s niece but “who are these people”

              Its just funny how Kathy says “Who are these people, where do they come from?” like she has no clue who they are. I wonder if Tre knew that Kathy’s family had ties with the Greeks family? Or if she just found out? Because why would she be tweeting the link?

              • October 7, 2013 at 12:42 AM

                Karla, all of the cast members (and producers) have known the Greeks since September 2011 or earlier. They may not be friends with them, but they know who they are. Every single one of them is lying when they say they “don’t know who these people are.”

                • October 7, 2013 at 2:07 AM

                  This whole ordeal has gone way too far. Bravo, please shut this down before it gets any worse. I know I know they all signed up for this. Still, there are innocent children involved. This program has destroyed too many family’s, It is time to STOP.

                  i don’t think Teresa was trying to prove who brought the Greeks on the show, I think what she was trying to prove is that everyone points at her when it comes to the question “Who knows the Greeks” and that’s why she tweeted that link. To prove that she is not the only one that knew about them. Its just confusing to believe that she is ok to agree with Bravo that she will be the one to be blamed for the Greeks… then tweet prove that everyone else also has ties with them.

    Annoyed … my DVR (an old one) won’t let me switch from WWHL to Revenge as I guess I didn’t have my priorities right. Just when I was starting to like Rosie, um nope. She grabbed TB’s crotch? Who does that? OMG more Teresa bashing, WTF? Apologies are only sincere if you cry — who the fuck says that? The poll question is about TB’s hair? — do you like it shaved or sprayed? OMG — plainviewsue asked why Rosie doesn’t defend Teresa but does Joe – she said she calls them both out when they are wrong — BS.

    Poop they really didn’t talk a whole lot about the reunion. Boring.

    Watching the reunion tonight made me livid and provoked me to come and comment, to my husbands dismay, on this horrific display of delusional females (Andy included).
    I was proud that this reunion, by some miracle, Tre was able to hol her ground and respond in line with the responses I’ve screamed at my tv on seasons past(not proud).
    So far, she seems the most credible. Melissa seems without character, but she’s in second place to Joe, who, I swear, I’m not an our for blood Tre supporter, literally made me puke in my mouth. Did anyone notice his out of the blue, heavy accent when he was first allowed to talk? I almost had an adult diaper moment!
    I put this statement out on another blog. I’m joining twitter( I hate twitter and vowed I’d never ) for the sole purpose of getting my first and sure to be only, due to blocked, comment to that stupid mitherfuc?$&r Andy bitch ass Cohen. I hate the sense of inacountabilty the social lackluster standards that these so frequently morally deficient gay people use to their advantage. I think these “victims” of society have raped and pillaged the efforts that their “serious” pioneers worked and suffered for.
    Andy Cohen is a lot like the gay bitch men that expect acceptance but are unable to follow their plight of acceptance when it applies to anyone who disagrees.
    So sick of bitches crying foul! Humanity is a celebration of differences. Just as you want to be accepted for ur sexuality, you need to accept that some people have different political, racial, everything views!
    The very argument you preach is the thing you heavily perpetrate against when it’s not how you view things. I’m sorry but the hypocrisy is vomit inducing. Andy Cohen, I used to love you. You crossed over to THAT gay guy that sucks every bit as much as a gossipy, back stabbing, snorting bitch sucks!

    I agree Jac is a snake that sells snake oil. I love these reviews about BLK .

    Donald | March 22nd, 2012

    Ingredients are impressive. The humic and fulvic are natures pathway for inoganic soil to be absorbed and transported by the plant kingdom. This soil then becomes ionized organic minerals, bioavailable for metabolic activity. The same biological activity occurs in animals which makes this product interesting.
    Caveat # 1—-Mineral spring water is not all the same, and much is contaminated. Where does Blk get its water and what are the TDS (total disolved solids)?
    Caveat # 2—Not all fulvic is the same quality. Where did BLK get it? Moreover,
    I do not want water with a ph of 9 unless I am very sick and need to detoxify under medical supervision.
    Caveat # 3—“Plastic is for Profits” not health.

    kate | May 1st, 2012

    SNAKE OIL ON TAP! Just like all those companies that claim to sell “alkaline” water. The body does not need help balancing its pH. The body’s pH is normally between 7.35-7.45 (this is the blood and body cavities; stomach pH and certain other areas might have their own unique acid-base balance). Any deviations form this and you’re talking SERIOUS health consequences (metabolic alkalosis/acidosis for starters).

    There is NOTHING on the market and approved by the FDA for food use that will alkalize the body – nor should you want something like it. This is purely a market gimmick, that will fade over time.

You are putting a littler dirt (decomposed sediment same damn thing) in you shitty local tap water and selling it for ten dollars a bottle or whatever it is. You should be jailed for fraud.

      • Rosalie Marie,
        October 13, 2013 at 3:02 AM

        gessiewtf,
        In Canada, the original Black Water, it is rain water that filters through a coal mountain and comes out of a stream deep black.
        I think since the Manzo’s have been caught using that actual product…. taking the Canadian product and pouring it into a different bottle, using a different label, is what got them into trouble. I think now the Manzo’s and Laurita’s are getting away with selling BLK because they had to make up their own formula. I believe in my heart, mind and soul, they are filtering water through coal. Yes, coal. They claim they are not using a dye, but I think they are in fact using a dye and disguising the food dye under a different name. OR…..
        It’s possible the Manzo’s and Laurita’s are really just spokesperson’s for the product. Perhaps there was an agreement by the parties involved in the scandalous product agreed that the Laurita’s and Manzo’s have to use their television appearances to sell Black Water for the origninal company. Either which way, it’s the only two explanations I can possibly think of that makes me wonder why Manzo’s and Laurita’s are still claiming the product as their own. Also, if you recall, the Manzo brother’s and Chris Laurita was shown hussling to those food and beverage shows in their newly BLK custom designed trucks. They were making a HUGE deal of the water. Even Chris lamented how very important it was to him. Well, this season, we see something completely different. None of them seem to be climbing mountains for BLK this season. In fact, show the product but they don’t seem to be going to crazy with it. They talk about it a little but it’s doesn’t really seem that important as they claim. Certainly no urgency this season now is it? Nope. In fact, the Manzo boys are bullshitting how BLK is their wife, but how can we believe that when they are clearly spending the majority of their airtime on the show building up a restaurant. My guess is they are forced to be spokespersons for the drink, and lying about being the actual owners. Think about it, every season, we see the Manzo boys trying to ‘pretend’ their lives are very busy and very important. They look silly trying to make viewers believe they are business savvy when in fact, they are lazy fucking losers who will never do a damn thing in their lives without their mommy paying for them to “appear” good. Anyway, It’s easy to tell they are all lying about owning the product because I saw several bottles of BLK on the shelf at a Giant grocery store. Hmmm? HMMM? Don’t you think, if the Manzo boys really accompished a product that made it on the shelve’s at Giant’s supermarket, those boys would be showing off on television where the product is being made? The Manzo’s love to show off. If they really had a company producing the water, they would be showing themselves on television being bosses, running a warehouse. Especially Albie. Albie would love to show off his corporate business if he were that fucking good. Nope. We aren’t seeing where the water is being bottled. We don’t see the warehouse where the water is being boxed and shipped out. We don’t see Albie on television talking about how stressed out he is getting those bottles out all across the country and to Australia. As a matter of fact, the only thing we hear from Albie is, “BLK is my wife and my restaurant is my mistress.”

        Really Albie? You Don’t Own BLK! You’re A Spokesperson for the product’s company and frankly, you can’t even do that right. What A Fool They Are Making Themselves.

    NowHow are they able to tell such blatant lies and hold a straight face. This reunion is a joke! When Caroline was asked if she wanted to fix her problem with her sister like Teresa, she said I don’t look through other peoples glasses my head almost exploded. What the hell does she call what she has been doing all this time if not looking through Teresa’s .
    I had so many jaw dropping experiences watching this reunion it is a wonder why I’m not tripping over my bottom lip. Andy gave Melissa a little yank when he asked about them selling their house if you noticed she didn’t say they got full price just that they did pretty well, lies.
    All of them tried to throw Teresa under the bus, I think she held her own for the most part. Loved Juicy Joe’s attitude through it all especially him cracking up when Andy asked Gorga did he bite his balls, lol. He didn’t let them bother him one bit,he looked kinds bored through most of it.
    What surprised me the most was Jac and Kathy’s not going in on Teresa maybe they will join the say I’m sorry to me Teresa mob next week God knows the other sadistic twits enjoyed her apologies.
    All in all I’m disappointment that they are still sticking to their scripted lies and insulting our intelligence. But hey,that’s Bravo for you,keep lying until they believe it’s true.
    So glad I have Fame and fame-ily to report the truth. Watching the reunion was more like comic relief of the truth.

    I did watch the reunion with my husband and daughter. I had to explain about the blogs and twitter………which they do not read any of it unless I tell them about it. Because that is all that the reunion is about. Unless you follow social media you really have no clue what the heck is going on with these women. Then I realize all the women including Teresa is going along with the finale episode where penny calls Teresa out. Yet on social media penny says it was edited to look like she did. They are all following the script. I hate to say it but I’m over all of them even Teresa. Its their job and they all need that pay check because none of them have real jobs and they all have law suits that are draining them dry.

        After reading a couple of twitter exchanges I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s because Tre posted a link to a story about the Greeks. Apparently, the Wakile’s have a link to the Greeks via JTG’s niece and nephew. The neice is Victoria Wakile’s BFF and Victoria is dating the nephew. Some people are calling the Wakile’s out for lying about not knowing them. Here are some tweets:

          I think most of the cast think its ok to lie because the show is literally lie upon lie upon lie manufactured by Bravo. Its just part of the game, and when the viewers see through that curtain, they change the cast so we can keep playing the game, looking behind that curtain.

        A highlight of the article

        The latest source of idiocy comes from Melissa Gorga, a woman made famous by the ‘Real Housewives’ franchise and therefore about as qualified to give marital advice as a piece of lint you might find stuck to a Mintie inside an old jacket you never wear anymore. Gorga’s new book, Love Italian Style: The Secrets of My Hot and Happy Marriage was released recently, offering such pearls of wisdom as, “The way I see it, if a wife is a puttana, her husband will never feel the urge to go outside the marriage to actual whores, or strip clubs.” Got it ladies? If you don’t want your husband to fraternise with ‘actual whores’, you have to act like one yourself. By demeaning other women around you, comparing yourself to them and treating them like enemies, you can guarantee that Your Man will stay loyal! He’s like a big ole puppy in that respect.

            No arguments here. I have a cousin who went crazy on me one time. We weren’t close but we were friendly until that conversation. After that, I was done with her. She apologized to me. She’s been apologizing for about 12 years now. I’m civil to her and that’s it. I love my family but that doesn’t mean they get to bring drama to my life.

      Last night Teresa tweeted the Reality Row link that outed Kathy’s connections to Johnny the Greek through her kids…..Rosie is probably PO’d and defending her sister Kathy….Good for Teresa – I am really glad she finally has a PR “crisis team” and is defending herself……

      I think everyone at the reunion looked miserable, except T, she looked surprisingly empowered and actually spoke her mind – nice.. Kathy had no value to add at all and probably thinks it was a slap that her hubby was not invited, Melissa and Joe just looked like Wow, we thought everything was going to be sunshine and rainbows and we are not getting to beat on T anymore, sucks huh? And Caroline, well, she just wants to go out with the upper hand and a dig at T….Jaq was actually really quiet…nice for a change.

          I really doubt he was asked to attend the reunion and declined! Didn’t he go to a New York State Fair’s Midway Music Series event with Kathy and stuck his head out from the back curtain six times, desperate for attention? It was reported that the other two HW’s, Tamra Judge and Jill Zarin called him out for it because he was being an annoying nuisance! Richie is just like the Gorga’s when it come’s to fame whoring!

    October 7, 2013 at 7:27 AM

    I agree AGIRL614. I thought Teresa was very put together this show! One thing I noticed off the bat(it was like one of the very first things) was when the Radar Online stuff came up and Teresa presented very articulate evidence about what her PR team learned (Andy even looked totally nervous when Teresa was explaining BTW) before an answer could come out-DIVERSION QUEEN CAROLINE swoops in and starts squawking “WHO CARES??!!!”

    As this blog clearly points out–because Radar has been close to the Manzo/Laurita camp from day one and Caro was not sure if she was going to get called out next so she diverted the actual topic and planted yet another “Petty Teresa” seed!! As an invested viewer I knew right away what she was doing and of course Andy let it ride out.

    The other things I did not like were, well, it seems like Dr. V may have changed her tune and had some choice words with the Gorgas, but that was edited. Melissa does not like V, that is clear as day. Melissa knows she is the cause of the problem and she feels threatened by her.

    Why was it not clear to anyone else on that stage that Melissa is the issue between Tersa and Joe Gorga?? She sat there and started in on Teresa for calling Joe on the phone–HER BROTHER– and it just went over everyone’s head. There. Right there is all the evidence in the world what/who the issue is.

    For Melissa to sit there and call Penny and Jan out for the tactics they used to get on the show was laughable at best. I am actually glad that made the cut of the reunion bc Danielle outed her on WWHL and (not that attention will be brought to it other than here), more proof what a hypocrite she is!! Oh and for Joe Gorga to sit there and say ” I’m the victim here…” to Teresa when she was trying to point stuff out to him (all of which was all making sense), that was evidence that the words he uses are things Meilssa says (just like Teresa pointed out in her TH).

    I know I should know better but I hate how they ended the Dr V segment looking like Tersa was chastised as the instigator by V saying “don’t lash out at ppl.” bc from the looks of it, I think V let them all have it a little but of course Bravo had to frame the hell out of it!!

    It seemed like DrV and Andy were teaming a little so now my thoughts are that V really and truly did not know the full back story going in to Lake George and now she has had time to look into things and was a little more fair towards the situation. Shame on Andy for using her in his agenda.

    I hate how Joe Gorga was able to excuse his bad behavior at Lake George by saying that the fight between him and Giudice was the best thing that happened for them and now he realizes he loves Juicy. Oh please. He was just saying that to put a positive spin on it in case he got called out bc he knows he was wrong. In fact they were all trying to excuse their bad behavior by refuting Tersa’s feelings when she said that she did not want the kids to see the family fighting on TV and here goes Rosie and Joe “so what kids are going to fight…” yeah, no shit idiots!! But Tersa had a valid argument that pointed out their wrong doing so they made light of it and made excused for it.

    After 3 seasons of the Gorga’s, for Joe to sit their and say that he shouldn’t have to apologize to Teresa for calling her names or things he has done to her BECAUSE THEY ARE BROTHER AND SISTER…um…wha…HUH?!!!!!! What a freeing moron of all morons!!! THAT supposedly is his sole purpose for being on the show, Teresa (how we still do not know) did him so dirty and wrong and he demanded several apologies, in fact, THAT was his and Caroline’s main story line this season. MMM, SMDH!!!

    Melissa was able to get away with lying saying that her sister do not tweet nasty things about Teresa-which, again, the blatant out right lies were unbelievable to me…and Joe thought he was helping by saying, “they are her sisters and they are going to defend her” and Tersa’s comeback to Joe was spot on-perfect, ” but I am YOUR sister!”
    I think that statement in and of itself will be the beginning of the end of the Gorgas stupid games. How can anyone deny that Teresa is right. Finally!!

    I hated how Andy was antagonistic to Teresa asking if she “just stopped holding grudges within the last half hour” which is dismissive of her feelings and what she was going through with the whole thing re: her family joining the cast.

    The most awkward moment on BRAVO history—-Rosie grabbing Joe Gorga’s piece!!!!!!!!!Oh my gosh was it weird!! I think this moment is evidence that this whole TV thing has gone to their heads and not in a good way. They all need some real and serious help.

      I agree Jack and I hated the fact that Teresa had to yet again apologize to the stump and he didn’t even apologize to her and came out with that sh** about not having to apologize because they were brother and sister. WHAT???? Like you said that has been his storyline since he came on.

      Also I hate the fact how Teresa had to say that what she wrote on her blog about Chuckie and her husband fighting had been a lie. I don’t believe it for a minute. I think that as a good employee Teresa had to “lie” and say she lied. You could tell on Teresa’s facial expression that she was forced to say this. How is Teresa posting that chuckie was fighting with her husband a big deal when he spoke ugly to her on national t.v. Just because she is going to make a fake-y-ality about her perfect life and family she is going at great lengths to cover any negative things about her.

      I didn’t see the whole reunion but those were some things that stood out. Oh yeah and Jackos face when chuckie brought it up. She is a true psyco. Oh and also when credit was being given to dr V for Teresa apologizing and making things better with her brother, Jacko spoke and said I had something to do with that too, what a bitch.

      • Isolde
        October 7, 2013 at 8:00 PM

        Caroline brought up Teresa’s blog, saying that Teresa lied, but Teresa said that she “heard” that the Manzos were fighting a lot in Arizona, and said “of course you aren’t going to fight in front of me”. Jacqueline was nervous when that came up, because of course she was the one who told Teresa that. FauxReality tweeted yesterday, that Jac contacted peeps back in Jersey, and told them that Caroline was fighting with Al in Arizona. This confirmed to me that it was Jacqueline who was responsible for telling Teresa, and Teresa did not want to say who told her that. Caroline, of course, called it a lie, because of her book and upcoming spin off show, and wanting to portray a good marriage. Jacqueline betrays Caroline, and it is Teresa’s fault, and a lie that Teresa started. Jacqueline has no loyalty to anyone, and Teresa is supposed to apologize for that as well.

        Jacqueline tweeted yesterday, with regard to the cheating question of Joe Giudice and the babysitter/secretary, that she “brutal honest, but she had no business going there, and crossed the line by bringing it up”. So yet once again, on Twitter, she was telling people that what she said on last year’s reunion was true, but she shouldn’t have done it. When asked at this reunion, she said “she wasn’t going back there, and respond to Andy’s question”, but then tweets about it. Then the whole Wakile/Karagiorgis connection on Twitter, and making Teresa the villain–when obviously the Wakiles know of the Greeks, and we know that Rich went to John’s work, and both Kathy and Rich called the Greeks on the phone the night before the brawl, and spoke to them for an hour and a half. If they didn’t know them, why did the Wakiles call them for an hour and a half. I don’t call people that I don’t know for 5 minutes, let alone over an hour. There is no loyalty among this group with the exception of Teresa–and they know she won’t rat them out. However, I was so glad that Teresa did speak up about the Radar Online connection with TSIL, and I say good for her. TB sits and says “no apologies needed between brother and sister”, but since he first came on the show, has said that “all he needed was an apology, and he could forgive his sister, and move on”.

        This is all such a very sad joke, and all of these people have stabbed Teresa in the back, and continue to do so. I have no doubt that their comments last year about Teresa’s bankruptcy, legal issues, and lifestyle, were used against the Giudices. They all made those comments publicly on the show, in order to hurt the Giudices, and have succeeded, and now say, “they feel sad for them, and that their business is personal and should not be discussed”-especially Kathy’s comments, not that they did just that all last season. That is the big joke, everything they did especially last season, and what they say now. It is all fake, and following Twitter last night, just proves that. Teresa should not be speaking to anyone of them, and should never trust them.

What a creep.

    • October 7, 2013 at 2:57 PM

      I agree with all of this. Very nice summary.

      I could never be Teresa and let my family get away with this crap. In my own family, I’m known as the bitch and with good reason. When I hear a lie, I’m like, ahem, and I call the person out. Everyone knows better than to tangle with me in my family and it’s because ever since I was little, I haven’t stood for the bull or the hypocrisy. There’s a vortex of drama that I never get sucked into because I will put people on blast without hesitation. Teresa is just too damn nice. Whenever she so much as hints at the truth, they shut her down. She’s already deleted that tweet exposing Kathy, to keep the peace, and they’re still calling her names. I would have left it up and thrown in some anecdotes with more pictures. Maybe some diagrams with maps of people’s houses.

      Injustice and lying really really bug me and I could never be someone’s scapegoat. Heads would roll. Sorry for the mini-rant but I was so proud of Teresa last night and to see her backtrack is disappointing. I want her to stick up for herself. These people do not love her and she needs to accept that and move on.

    Sorry if any of this was already said(here and above) and for the typos but one more thing, for Kathy to excuse Rich’s bad behavior towards women and for Caroline to back her up is reason enough for anyone with morals to stop supporting these people. THE absolute one and only reason I now want the show to continue without the Giudice’s is because when they fail (and they all will) who are they going to blame? Like for Caro’s spin-off, who can she possibly blame when it fails? I will not watch to find out but I cannot say that will not be interesting.

    Just from Rosie’s tweet to Teresa last night, it is clear there is still animosity, darkness, and ill-will between all the family members. The body language and what was being said last night between TSIL and Teresa just reiterates it. Dr. V coming on and telling Teresa she needs to work harder?? Really?!?!

    I agree with Kay upthread – ALL of them, including Teresa, are following a script to finish up the season and to collect their paychecks. They all are really good employees aren’t they?!?

    I also agree wholeheartedly with Laram – Teresa needs to get her priorites straight – with her children’s well-being priority No. 1 – and turn her back on all of this negativity, rid herself of these people and concentrate solely on getting her life in order. But she won’t. I will get flak for this but I’ve said all along that if it were to come out that Teresa had any part in this, I would no longer be able to give her my 100% support. While I have great empathy for what she has gone through, it is clear to me that, at least this season, she knew what was going to happen. She is playing along with the script and allowing herself to be made a fool, all the while dragging her children through this. And the Whorgas are made out to be fine, upstanding members of the family?!?! Something is very wrong here.

    I am just so disgusted.

    I’ve just skimmed through all these wonderful comments but I don’t have time today to go through them as thoroughly as I would like. But I would like to say I am grateful to be part of such an intelligent and insightful community.

      Yeah, Jeannie maybe I am giving V more credit than what is due? I need to re-watch( I usually will during the twitter feed back episode next week) I need to be careful as I do not want to sound so absolute about her being a positive force but having some background knowledge in how therapy works, my thoughts are, she likely was harsh and realistic with all of them and the big excuse that Cohen always runs with is that due to time constraints they cannot show everything(he clearly leaves out the part that they edit to fulfill skewed agendas etc). I think he showed more of V’s input unlike @ Lake George(for instance, towards the Gorgas). It is clear we do not see the full conversations, there was a lot of dead air to my surprise, but for once, they showed some signs of others struggling!!

    Some of the things that pissed me off about the reunion. First – where the hell did that piece of shit Midget think that since he and Tre were brother and sister they “never had to apologize to each other”? Really??? That Nut Sucking Scum kept whining like a baby that Tre “needed to apologize” to *him* every friggin episode this season.

    And I just love how the Vile Cheating Whore made the little comment about “we did alright” when selling her Barbie Dream House. She skirted the issue about selling it for full price, which we all know did *not* happen. Really bitch? You are happy with the fact that you made *zero* profit on the deal after all the money you sucked out in refis? So where is the “dream house” being built? Funny how the Gorga name doesn’t appear on any property records in Franklin Lakes right now. Where’s your palace being built – in a drainage ditch next to an underpass? Why not move to one of your “luxury” properties in Paterson? With all the trash in the street you would feel right at home…

    • October 7, 2013 at 1:16 PM

      That is what I hate about the Gorgas. Why can’t they just say “we sold the house because we were in a tight spot and felt it was smart to part from the house until we could save a little money to buy a new one” If they were honest, I would actually like them. She could say ” I dont like my sister in law but that is ok cause not all families get along” not all the bullcrap that she is the victim like she says. IDC how many different ways Andy tries to sell the Gorgas, I aint buying. I think Bravo knew or suspected what was going to happen with Tre and Juicy and they tried to replace them with an “equally fun & young couple” but it backfired. No one likes the Gorgas because they are liars and evil.

        As I read the last 2 lines in ur post a light went on for me I did read somewhere that the Guidices had know for quite a while about the charges and that a case was being built against them so bravo probably knew to so it does make sense that they were grooming the Gorgas to become the new IT couple when Tre had to leave hence the bad edit for her and the victim edit for messy they were trying to build the gorgas popularity not because Cohen likes them but because he likes MONEY and needed a new money maker that can only be the explanation for such bad editing for this season the players Jan and the Greeks though were not playing bravos way because messy is just really messy!!

    Bitch couldn’t lie about getting the full asking price on t.v. for some reason, but she felt free to lie about it all over the internet. Interesting. The Shoresplinter is such a pathological liar it is unbelievable. What’s her name, Jan is posting on her facebook that Messy asked her to come on the show with the cheating accusations. So she would have the premiere storyline this year.

    • October 7, 2013 at 2:04 PM

    • Saddle_River_NJ
      October 7, 2013 at 4:37 PM

      My rough guess is they probably got about $2.4~2.7 million for the house. Leaves precious little after all the loans are paid off. Also probably explains why they are renting the house they are. It’s *far* from a luxury home that would make for a pretty filming location – but pretty much all they could afford. If the skank really could “afford her house ten times over” she would do a short term lease on one of several true mansions that are on the market. She is just so full of shit. The nice thing is she is also so stupid she doesn’t realize what a fool she makes herself out to be. To paraphrase the great Dan Aykroyd: “Melissa, you ignorant slut”…

          Here ya go Ms celi

          Frequently Asked Questions
          regarding
          CHANGING THE GODPARENT(S) / SPONSOR(S)

          Q. 1. My daughter was baptized when she was a month old. She had two Godparents (sponsors) in accordance with the teachings of the Catholic Church. Both Godparents (sponsors) moved out of our city within three years and are no longer part of her life. Can I have her Godparents (sponsors) changed? I mean, can I get new ones for her that will be more active in her life?

          A. 1. According to the teachings of the Catholic Church, during the Sacrament of Baptism, a child can only have two Godparents (Sponsors), a male and a female. These are the official witnesses that the child was baptized. Their names are recorded on the Baptismal Certificate. This record cannot be changed. You cannot replace the name(s) of the original godparent(s) because any newly chosen person would not have been the witnesses to the Sacrament of Baptism. Nor would the new Godparent(s) be the one(s) who spoke up for the child, asking that the child be admitted into the Catholic Church.

          In a situation where the child has not yet received the Sacrament of Confirmation, there is hope for a “new” Godparent. During the Sacrament of Confirmation, as during the Sacrament of Baptism, in accordance with Paragraph # 1311 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church and Canon Law # 892-893, the child will need at least one Godparent, a maximum of two, a male and a female. At this time, one or more Godparents can be appointed, providing that the original Godparents are no longer part of the child’s life.

          Being given the opportunity to change the Godparent, in the choosing of a new Godparent(s), it is stronghly recommended that the parent(s) of the child to be confirmed abide by the guideline set up by the Catholic Church in its Canon Laws. This is to ensure that the Godparent(s) will be there to support the parents in their Christian role as models and to guide the child in his/her Christian life.

          Q. 2. I heard that there was a ruling sent to the Bishops of both, the United States and Canada, (Reply of November 13, 1984; in 1985 Roman Replies of the Canon Law Society of America) that permitted a change of Godparent under certain circumstances. Have you heard of this ruling?

          A. 2. The November 13, 1984 response states:

          “The nomination of a new sponsor (godparent) by the bishop to take the place of the original Sponsor who presented the candidate for baptism (c. 872) in the event of incapacity or death, is not foreseen in the new code, indeed it is specifically excluded for just reasons.”

          “There is nothing, however, to prevent the Diocesan Bishop for just reasons, from nominating even officially a ‘substitute’ of the Sponsor who could be inscribed on the same baptismal register.”

          Based on the aforementioned, there is no official replacement of the Godparent. Rather, there is the nominating of a substitute of the Sponsor. The original name of the Godparent (Sponsor) can never be removed from the Baptisam Register.
          http://www.catholicdoors.com/faq/qu129.htm

        • October 7, 2013 at 2:21 PM

          I do not think a Godparent can be replaced. In the Catholic faith, a Godparent is responsible for the child continuing their Catholic faith should something happen to their parents. A court of law does not recognize Godparents as being a child’s guardian should something happen to the parents.

          No worries Celi, I do not think the Gorgas will be raising any of the Guidice girls.

He stated that he didn’t think the girls would even want to go to them (love me some Juicy, he’s not afraid to throw the shade!!!). He said they would go to live with his siblings if they had to.

    • October 7, 2013 at 1:07 PM

      It was disgusting and everyone felt uncomfortable by it. I’m sorry but yu can tell TB was uncomfortable by it too, he did a little awkward smile and then put his hands over his private area as if he were covering. I think that the Wakiles are trying to hard to stay relevant on the show that they would do anything trying to create the “wow” factor but it comes out as “ew” factor.

  50. October 7, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    I wonder if Bravo is going to finally listen to their viewers and either can the show or get rid of the Gorgas and Wakiles. Seriously, its probably more than 70% of the viewers want them out. IMHO they should just can the show, its too far gone and the viewers know too much of the editing, they pushed the lies too far this season and I feel like there is no going back. They made it so obvious that the viewers just gave up. They are not professionals and if I were Bravo I would get rid of Mandy PRONTO. I feel like he is so desperate to be a housewife that he throws so much shade at them.

      @CloudCatcher19 actually liked this season’s direction – forgiveness, healing, trying to break through the bs.

      which tells me that he is more out of touch than I originally thought. I believe at this point, the show cannot be saved because I don’t think he even sees the problem(s).

      • October 7, 2013 at 8:15 PM

        Andy is unable to see the problems this show is suffering from. The pedestal he has placed himself on is too high and the cirrus clouds are blocking his view.

        I was once a diehard fan of four Bravo programs, it seemed I lived to watch Top Chef, RHONY, RHOA and then RHONJ. The episode where Sheree pulled on Kim’s wig did if for me, I was out and have never watched RHOA since. Top Chef seemed to become so “fixed”, I dropped that program in 2009 also. (My husband wants to watch this season, because it was filmed in New Orleans. I will be on this blog or reading.) RHONY bored me to death at the beginning of the last season and I dropped that program after about three episodes.

        I believe I held on to RHONJ because I could relate to that franchise the most, because they were really family and friends. My friends and I actually had cookouts and pot luck dinners, then gathered together to watch RHONJ. Slowly, after the start of Season 3, people dropped out. A group of twelve people, who once loved and watched this show, has now turned to zero.

        Between a family get together and a vacation, I missed three episodes. When I was six minutes into one of my DVR’d episodes, the editing was so bad, I was done, done, done. Not only am I done with Bravo, I am also done with their sponsors and have been for sometime now. Buy fresh and buy local, it is not that hard.

        I believe I held on to RHONJ because I hoped it would turn into what it once was, fun and light hearted. I come to this blog for Fame and my friends who post here. I really care more about this blog and the people who post here than the show.

        Note to Andy – Have a fresh cast after 4 seasons.

    What have we learned from the reunion? We learned that Andy knows all about this blog. He absolutely had to bring up Caroline’s business with Al; Melissa’s whispers against Teresa on the bus; Dr. V’s impression of Joe G’s aggressive behavior; and on and on. Andy was so fair in the questions he allowed too. Why? Because he knows none of the fans on this site believe in the show any longer and will not watch. He knows his plan has gone awry; he has to save face.

    Congratulations to this blog and all us posters who have called him out.

    Teresa learned to not lose her composure as she has in the past, and did a fine job. Melissa will never own up to her shenanigans against Teresa ever, but Teresa explained her reasons and apologized.

    Now, moving forward, I most likely won’t watch NJ any longer, but I do love my BH Lisa.

    I was kind of enjoying the Reunion until the last 1/2 hour or so (when it turned into the usual Teresa must apologize/own it/stop lashing out BS-A-Rama.)

    My fave part was the brief Kathy Wakile retrospective and when the camera returned to the “ladies”. Whack-Jax pretended to be bored/just waking up and was like Oh, was Kathy on? I’m not sure how she meant it (whoever knows with this Loon?) but it was hilarious to me…not so much to everyone else. LOL! 🙂 She is soooo addicted to blogs/internet and obviously knows that everyone makes fun of “Kathy WHO?”

    I’m not as disgusted as I thought I would be with Teresa-the-good-employee.” I’ve struggled being the blue-collar breadwinner with a disabled hub and 2 daughters…I’m certain I wouldn’t give this gig up with 4 young daughters with the hub and I facing federal prison. The show is a platform for so many ventures for her, and she’s knocked them out of the park. (That’s why they hate her, right?) It would be great for Dina to return during the trial. If Teresa escapes jail time – or even house arrest – those two would make a great spin off of down sizing and redecorating Teresa’s life.

    I wasn’t riveted to the Reunion and think I saw only two “good employee” moments. 1) When Teresa backtracked on Al-Caro fighting the whole time at the retreat. She stated that she’d “heard” they were and blogged about it because she was “hurt” by Caro’s horse comments. 2) The exchange with Whack about being Lucy and Ethel. I felt like that was leaving the door open for a Whack-return to the Show. Whack-0 was proving that she is willing to be side kick again.

    NOoooooo BRAVO Noooooooooooooo0000000!!!

    Rosie is a POS, just like her sister btw.

      Kitten, ITA with you.
      I like Teresa but of course am sad that she was involved with the fraud. No. I don’t think she is innocent but I also think Joe may have done a lot behind her back to get them to that place. Also I rather doubt either of them will do jail time. Possibly they will work out a way to pay some or all of it back and do community service.
      Teresa needs to get away from the Bravo network and have her own show. Despite what is said on Facebook she still has a lot more fans then Melissa.The most filthy things are said against Teresa but FB won’t remove them but agree or post negatives abt MeHo and one is Blocked from commenting or sharing. Not a bit fair!
      I was blocked from posting on FB for weeks so I unsubbed from it.
      I presume one of the MeHo Fans reported me but I wonder what they claimed I had done? I’d like to know so I can do it back to a crowd of suspects.

      • October 7, 2013 at 3:37 PM

        If you were on TSIL’s FB page, then she blocked you. If people are saying negative things about Tre on her FB page, then Tre can block them. Whoever’s page you are commenting on does the blocking. And we know TSIL isn’t going to block people who are saying negative things about Tre on her page.

    October 7, 2013 at 3:07 PM

    Did anybody catch the part of the reunion last night when Teresa clearly almost said “the writers”?! I forgot what the question was (the season & the finale have been so repetitive that I zone out a lot while watching) but I think it had to do with why Penny would say Teresa put her up to everything if it weren’t true. Teresa answered “Well, obviously the wr… Penny and Johnny…” I gasped and couldn’t believe edit-loving Bravo didn’t do a better job of editing it out!!

    Melissa has done so much already to contradict herself but I really feel like the finale was one of her worse performances yet. Usually she’s a pretty good liar, I mean she sounds like she’s even convinced herself that the stories she tells are true (no matter how many times she tells them or how many times she changes them) but last night you could see her tripping all over her words. I love how Teresa is getting crap all season for merely hearing someone talking bad about Melissa, yet, Melissa’s sisters, Dumb and Dumber, sit around and bash Teresa like it’s their full time jobs. But that’s okay according to Melissa because “they will always have her back.” So please, can someone pleaseee explain to me why it’s not okay for Teresa to be an innocent bystander to people speaking the TRUTH about her sister in law, but it’s totally okay for Melissa’s own BLOOD to bash her sister in law? She is such a hypocrite, I can’t deal with her. All I’m saying is we all know damn well that if it were Teresa, her daughters, her family or her in-law’s trashing Melissa on twitter the way the Marco women do, they’d have Teresa’s head on a stake.

    Also, I know this is totally off topic and I might even get some crap for this, but am I the only one who thinks Melissa looks stoned most of the time?! Her eyes are almost always red & droopy. I definitely think she either smokes funny cigarettes or enjoys popping happy pills.

    Twitter feud going on between teresa Kathy and Rosie.. Actually it’s just the wakile family and Rosie fighting with themselves

    Because of the blog below

    http://www.realityrow.com/1/post/2013/10/kathy-wakilefamily-friends-with-johnny-the-greek.html

    You can use my comments to repost if you’d like 🙂

    I don’t think Teresa’s intention was to blame them (you guys) about starting rumors but she was pointing out that everyone was acting like they are complete strangers that only Teresa knows.

    Melissa’s bridal party got their hair done with Lenny, Penny is friends with Jan, Kim D, and Melissa’s ex as well (a connection she doesn’t want to say in tv)

    Kathy’s kids know their family

    Jac knows penny about as much as Teresa does (pictures at appearances and Kim D store)

    Caroline … Not sure

    Teresa deleted the tweet because she knew it was wrong to retweet it and her intention was to clear her name not cast a cloud over her cousin. I see both sides and both have a right to be pissed. Please take your issues up over the phone and not twitter,

    The article didn’t bash the kids.. And the kids pics are public by the way.,teresa didn’t write the blog

    She wasn’t trying to say they brought Greeks in the show or even started rumors. She was trying to show they didn’t bring these complete strangers into their lives only

    Rosie and her “Speak for all gays” soapbox can go. She was so extra and unneeded at the reunion.
    I don’t see why people act like she’s such a great addition to the cast..

    NOBODY wanted to see her doing what she did with Joe Gorga there on the couch. DISGUSTING! That was supposed to make Richie look better for grabbing her boobs, but it really just proved how disgusting they all are.

    I don’t feel better having watched the reunion at all. They can go on and on about progress but it’s clearly the same dumb crap we’ve seen since Season 3.

    Melissa can’t even fake emotion anymore. She looked like a zombie the whole time

      Rosy is as much a spokesperson for gays as Flavor Flav is for African Americans.

      • October 7, 2013 at 6:13 PM

        Best comment of the week! And it’s only Monday. She’s still mouthing off on Twitter about how she’s gay and so she knows. I don’t tweet or I’d tell her to shut her face. I have lots of gay and lesbian friends and guess what, there’s no model or rule book. Everyone knows this so being the spokesperson for homosexuals worldwide that she is, she should too. Being gay doesn’t mean you know how it works for every gay couple. She’s the one who looked like a dumbass, not Teresa and Joe who were speaking about a specific couple who they know.

        • October 7, 2013 at 6:50 PM

          I’ve decided that I’m the new spokesperson for for all heterosexuals. I’m going to write a book to impart my knowledge on all. After all we do know everyone is the same and not unique! Anyone want to give me help on a chapter or two … thoughts?

            your chapter 2 should have something about actually poring a drink over the ice cubes in a glass for your hubby and maybe a recipe or 2. TSIL just puts the ice in a glass and takeout Chinese on a plate. Yours would be groundbreaking.

The castmembers of RHONJ are vile people – the lowlifes of society. Bravo and I will be parting ways as soon as the last episode of the Reunion airs. Done.

  65. October 7, 2013 at 4:16 PM

    In TSIL’s book she writes how she was always picked on – how the Boca B*tches hated her and set her up, blah, blah, blah. . . .

    In the following video, Andy asks the question: “What were you voted “Most Likely” in high school?” TSIL’s answer: “I used to always get ‘Miss Congeniality’. ”

        I will also continue to wish Teresa and her family well, and I’ll follow her career. But I won’t keep up with the housewife blogs for next season. Not unless I read that she is through being Cohen’s punching bag – and that’s not going to happen anytime soon.

I come here to share what I read etc. Its hard to know what these people are willing to do for fame and money and to their families and children. Its like we can’t let them get away with it….I know that sounds absolutely absurd! When you shut your site down….I was literally lost…..that probably sounds pretty darn crazy…lol. If you stop blogging….I stop too…I already quit rhonj…I just have to quit the rest of the madness. I even told my husband what is wrong with me why do I care….he just shakes his head….he did surprise me with Teresa’s cookbooks…lol. He enjoys the meals. (and he doesn’t mind if I have a headache or not in the mood he holds me anyway and he has never had to rip my clothes they are off before he can count to 3). Wait now where was I…lol. I have enjoyed your blogging, your research, the truth you share. I’m sure the housewives will be jumping for joy when you stop…(dang it I can’t deal with that!) because they know you report the truth.

        • October 7, 2013 at 8:28 PM

          “I was literally lost”, so were very many of us posters on this site. I do not watch very much television. If Fame blogs about a show she/he enjoys, I would watch that program and comment accordingly. If Fame blogs about a recipe, I am in on that also. For the most part we are fame ily.

            Agreed Jackie. I am so bored and disillusioned with what they have turned this show into that I even have had trouble getting into the stuff Fame has posted lately. I know that didn’t come out right…not sure how to say it. Come here now because of all of you, and not because I’m dying to hear all the NJ dirt. I can’t believe Fame has done this as long as he / she has.

    One thing I thought Andy was dead-on was that TB needs anger management.

    Yeah, ya think?!?!?!

    And I just love the glossing over of Rosie’s outrageous temper ‘Oh yeah, that’s just how I am!’ (giggle, giggle). And then she pulls the sh*t on Twitter last night and today.

    The same with Wretched’s tweets – according to Kathy you’re gonna get slapped if you hit first, especially against his wife and/or kids. But his tweets have been aimed at people who didn’t even say anything negative – he is a pig. And so is she.

    The standards of behavior for these people are subpar – if that.

    • IhateAndy
      October 7, 2013 at 10:14 PM

      It was glossed over though. It was a token question to satisfy critics of his behavior this season. If they were serious about anger management issues, they would of made it more of the focus.

    John and Penny Karagiorgias filed a civil lawsuit on October 2 against Joe Gorga, the Lauritas, Sirens, Bravo, NBCUniversal, Moxie Salon and others. The law firm Sekas and Abrahamsen represent the Karagiorgias’.

    An excerpt from an article on the InTouch website posted this evening:

    “Joe Gorga Chris Laurita, Jacqueline Laurita and Others Sued For Bloody RHONJ Brawl”

    While criminal charges resulting from the infamous brawl at Moxie Salon were dismissed in September, In Touch has just learned that a civil lawsuit has been filed on behalf of Johnny “The Greek” Karagiorgis and his wife Penny Karagiorgis. In the suit Johnny claims he was physically attacked by Joe, Jacqueline and Chris. It reads: “John Karagiorgis was unlawfully attacked without warning by Giuseppe (Joe) Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita, and Christopher Laurita. Giuseppe Gorga unlawfully attacked John Karagiorgis by punching him in the face and/or head with a closed fist. Christopher Laurita unlawfully attacked John Karagiorgis by punching him in face and/or head with a closed fist. Jacqueline Laurita then unlawfully attacked John Karagiorgis by striking him on the head and/or face with a stiletto-type shoe.”

    The violent physical altercation took place at Moxie Salon, where Kim DePaola’s designer dress shop, Posche 2, was holding an event back in March and was featured during a climactic showdown in the recent season finale of RHONJ.

    In the lawsuit, filed in Hackensack, N.J., on Oct. 2, Karagiorgis claims that Bravo producers conspired with the Housewives and their husbands to confront him in order to increase the show’s ratings.

    The confrontation ultimately led to punches being thrown and, according to the lawsuit, Karagiorgis suffered serious bodily injury at the hands of Melissa’s husband, Joe Gorga, as well as Jacqueline Laurita and her husband, Chris.

    Court papers obtained exclusively by In Touch name a slew of defendants — many of them not named — in this case. Noticeably missing from the lawsuit is Joe and Teresa Giudice (who have enough legal headaches of their own to deal with).

    The couple is looking for punitive damages plus the cost of attorneys’ fees. The complaint states that Johnny and Penny “have suffered but are not limited to bruising, scarring, disfigurement, fractured bones, facial lacerations, mental anguish, psychological health problems, physical discomfort, pain and suffering, economic losses, and shame and embarrassment.”

    Scoop! Gorga Construction is building a spec house on Prospect Avenue in Oradell, NJ. ( I thought TB’s construction license expired??) STRONG rumor is the Gorga’s will be moving there as soon as the house is complete. A family friend lives on that street. He said “The lady from RHNJ with little kids is moving there.” We shall see. Nice town but not exactly Franklin Lakes.

        Oradell?!? Are you joking?!? That particular area makes Kathy’s place look like Versailles. It’s right off Oradell Avenue just up from Kinderkamack Rd. *NOT* a desirable location because of the horrific traffic. Bergen County east of Route 17 has only a couple of major east-west thoroughfares – Oradell Ave is one of them. Traffic around rush hour and pretty much all day Saturday is awful. Also – White Beeches Country Club is way east of Prospect Ave on the Oradell/Haworth border. I know that area very well from a friend that lives near the CC. Melis-slut is better off in her rental with the Interstate almost in her front yard then she is in this supposed house. I also find it hysterical if in fact it’s true that “Gorga Construction” is building there. Aside from the actual slums he normally builds in – after the Montville Barbie Dream House – this area is “slumming it”

    • October 7, 2013 at 10:44 PM

        October 8, 2013 at 11:11 AM

        Yes Fame. Family friend said the home is almost complete… and also said “at first, it was supposed to be a “spec house”.. but now, they are moving in.” I thought it was interesting he said “spec house” bc he doesn’t watch the show, and he doesn’t know the history with their Montville “spec” home. The neighboring property is a private country club “White Beaches” and there were concerns about filming RHNJ. He also said he thought the street number was “405” Prospect Ave , or something near that. If I get more scoop, I will send it your way. BTW: Thanks for all you do Fame!

        • Randie
          October 8, 2013 at 11:32 AM

          Fame, I just looked up the address on Google Maps and there is no way in hell the Gorgas are moving on that street. It would be a major step down from their Montville Mansion. If they do, I would be shocked! Google Maps shows the broken ground but not able to see a structure. Nonetheless, “Gorga Construction” is on site according to neighbor. If they move there, my guess is that it would be what they truly could afford, instead of living beyond their means. I don’t see TSIL taking a step down. I’ll let you know if I hear anything else.

          • October 8, 2013 at 7:47 PM

One day I will explain more, but, you’re posts especially about your Mom have always touched me. I hope you are finding some peace.

    I had thought Rosie showed a changed for the good during the season. However, seeing her tweets of last night I realize it was all an act. Gessie, you are right. That family is just despicable! What I find laughable is Kathy telling Tre to call off her dogs. If anyone here has been around twitter long enough it’s not hard to see some of the key players in her ” doghouse” , heck, she’s talking smack to one of them in the screen shots!

    Dr V and the cast are so condescending towards Teresa. “You learnt a new emotional language” crap and “admit her mistakes”. Seriously what is wrong with Teresa to take that crap? How can she grovel and blow so much smoke up all of their backsides? Its simply bullying the way Dr. V handled the end of that reunion. Rosie, Kathy, Carowhine and Messy ALL took advantage and accused her of “going for the jugular” “not listening” etc. WTF?

    What about Joe’s anger management? That just gets mentioned and brushed away, but Tre ‘errors’ whatever it is, has to be milked.

    Sick people who come on this show and sicker people who make TV. IF Penny and JTG niece is an indication of who works in the media….we are the dumbest audience to keep watching this crap.

    I don’t know and I don’t care anymore. I invested a lot of time reading all the articles and comments here And IT Still doesn’t make sense. I wish I used the time to learn something worth while but it was hard to turn away from this. The dark side of the media was just jaw dropping with the lengths they go to

    Teresa doesn’t make sense. How does she give in and ‘apologize’. Its like the whole season they were saying “Teresa apologize for breathing you low life” And after 20 odd episodes later, Tre says, yes, I am sorry for being around oxygen and taking it in”. ITS CRAZY!! WHAT IS WRONG WITH HER? IS she that money hungry? That’s not strength of character to take this relentless attacks, its cowardice.

    The media is a sinister place and it saddens me that the truth has been hidden to such lengths.

    Don’t get me started on Andy….!

      That part pissed me off to. She was only talking to Teresa and was talking to her like a child. Only once did she look @ Melissa and joey. Also it was laughable that they brought up Teresa’s blog about Caroline and her husband fighting in Arizona ( Which I believe btw!) It shows that Bravo and Andy will go at any length to protect Caroline and Co. Teresa was not believable when she said she was lying or heard they were fighting! She had to say it!

    New blog is up:

    John and Penny Karagiorgias File Civil Lawsuit Against Joe Gorga, the Lauritas, Sirens, Bravo, NBCUniversal, Moxie Salon and Others
    https://famewhorgas.wordpress.com/2013/10/07/john-and-penny-karagiorgias-file-civil-lawsuit-against-joe-gorga-the-lauritas-sirens-bravo-nbcuniversal-moxie-salon-and-others/

    A Reddit user summed up the Caroline-Jacqueline-Dina feud well:

    There were other issues behind the scenes. One of them was, Caroline blamed Teresa for her problems with her sister Dina. The other issue was endorsement deals Teresa took from Jacqueline. Also, while filming season 4, they were watching season 3 with us, and getting upset, but they couldn’t say that on camera.

    Caroline and Teresa

    Caroline said Teresa worsened her problems with Dina at the season 3 reunion. Dina stopped speaking to Caroline and we all know Caroline is very family oriented. Teresa continued being friends with Dina and would say negative things about Caroline to her, and it made it worse. Caroline said she had e-mails from Dina quoting things Teresa had said.

    Jacqueline and Teresa

    Being on the same reality show, they had opportunities for endorsement deals and magazine covers. Teresa was a bulldog business wise. She did magazine covers with phony headlines to get paid. Apparently she went behind Jacqueline’s back and took a teeth whitening endorsement and a fruit based alcohol deal from her.

    Jacqueline and Dina

    Jacqueline is Caroline’s follower. She is married to Caroline’s favorite brother, Chris. Jacqueline came into the family by getting pregnant by Chris while he was engaged to someone else. This fiance was Dina’s best friend. (And Danielle’s nail girl). So Dina has never liked Jacqueline. Caroline chose her brother and his new wife, Jacqueline, over Dina. When issues boiled over, both Jacqueline and Caroline disliked Teresa together.

    Edit: Jacqueline also had issues with Dina concerning the charity Project Ladybug. Dina took credit for the charity, when it was actually a group effort. There were also questions about how donations were being used, making it look like charity fraud. Jacqueline outed the story to a blogger. Danielle (sigh) was in the middle of this. Jim Marchese (double sigh) investigated the charity funds for fun and tweeted about it.

    I am so Tardy for the Party on this thread but I’m playing catch up ! I’ve learned a few things from reading his blog and watching the show and reading tweets. First– bravo won’t air the reality of reality TV stars. The reality ends up on the cutting room floor. 2) second — Andy endorses the final edit although he plays dumb at reunions and I’m the clubhouse. I saw this at the end of part 2 of the reunion when Andy had a voice over that said “clearly not everything is fine” or something like that. The reunion sucked by the way — considering they taped for 15 hours and this is what the thought was good? Finally, there are people who know the real reality or whole truth if you will. Bravo uses these people to cause anxiety in the cast members. The cast members know this and they have their tricks (texting under table, not having an opinion on non cast members) to control the storylines a little. Penny and John know stuff, Bryan knows stuff ( as well as other SIL exes), Danielle knows stuff too. Kim D and Kim G have the 411 but they are pretty much a joke. People say they will come forward but never do. I really think the filming of Tre and Danielle would have been nice to see btw, but instead they chose to end the season with a fake fight in the middle of a real fight that never aired.

    During the season 6 premiere Dina was asked about Caroline by one of the producers while she was being interviewed. She rolled her eyes at the producer since she had made it clear that she would not be talking about her family’s feuds on the show. She tweeted the following about her eye roll:
    Eye roll was towards producer for asking me the question. I told them talking about my family was off limits #RHONJ not part of storyline — Dina Manzo (@dinamanzo) July 14, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Also during the season 6 premiere, in response to Dina Manzo referring to herself as “zen,” Ashlee Holmes (Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter) posted the following image on her instagram: A blogger pointed it out to Dina, who responded: “just a hint of why I stay away.” Then, as usual, Jacqueline got involved, before Nettie Laurita, Dina and Caroline’s mother, put a stop to it. (Rosie got into with a fan, as well.) The following are the tweets: Dina Manzo ‏@dinamanzo @AllAboutTRH just a hint of why I stay away Ashlee Holmes ‏@ashleeholmes LOL.. @dinamanzo @AllAboutTRH oh is THAT why?

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js In Dina’s blog for season 6 episode 5, she wrote:
    Lastly I want to talk about all the betrayal going on this week. I have to say I do admire TerEsa’s loyalty to her sister Nicole, and it was so refreshing to see Joey Gorga stick up for Joe Giudice. That is how I believe things should be with family and long term friends. I am a FREAK about loyalty and I am loyal as a freakin’ dog until you are not to me. Then guess what? I don’t go out for revenge, I simply cut you out of my life as if you died. I am BAFFLED when I see people put their loyalty where it doesn’t belong. I don’t always agree with what my friends and family do, but I WILL ALWAYS have their backs. That is unless I’ve had a funeral in my head for you because you didn’t have mine. http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-6/blogs/dina-manzo/dina-im-sorry?cid=related_blog
    Jacqueline countered Dina’s blog with the following tweets:

    It's interesting2me how pple can have such strong opinions on loyalty of others but live with&respect some1 who's not loyal.Better benefits? — Jacqueline Laurita (@JacLaurita) August 14, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js This feud between Dina and Jacqueline existed before the season 1 finale (the table flip episode). During the whispered conversation between Jacqueline and Caroline after the table flip, Jacqueline argued that Caroline knows “what she (Dina) is,” which Caroline tried to shut down, saying that Jacqueline was hurting her parents with her need to put this out there while the cameras were rolling. Jacqueline’s tweet above about “living with and respecting someone who is not loyal” because of “better benefits” can only be directed at Dina and her relationship with Tommy Manzo (they are in the process of divorcing because of his infidelity but still living together). Clearly Jacqueline believes that Dina married Tommy for financial security – Dina said on camera during her TV special for VH1, ‘My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding,’ which was taped in 2006, that Tommy had been unfaithful multiple times. Apparently Tommy was well known as a player and only agreed to the taping of the wedding for publicity for The Brownstone; Dina admitted to Andy that the wedding didn’t really cost $1 million. The following is a transcript of the whispered conversation between Jacqueline and Caroline caught on camera at the season 1 finale:
    Caroline: That’s my family…. Jacqueline: …You came to me and you were like, “I know what Dina is. Don’t you think I know what she is, I know” … You were like, “Feel sorry for her, feel sorry.” How could I feel sorry for her when you know what she is? C: Because you’re wrong…. J: …You said you knew too (Caroline is repeating “Jacqueline, Jacqueline”… but Jacqueline continues with a sly grin, pointing at Caroline) …and your husband said he knew…… C: Jacqueline, you know who you’re hurting? My parents…..

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Bravo interviewed Jacqueline about her brief return to RHONJ in the episode that premiered on September 21, 2014. Here’s what she said about her relationship with sister-in-law Dina Manzo, which Bravo later removed from the published interview:
    Currently there is no relationship between us, but only because she chooses not to have one. It’s frustrating because I feel like it’s all petty, nonsense stuff, that all just seems silly and unimportant to me. I have other, more important things to focus on, although, I’m always open to reconciliation with people that are willing and sincere. My husband is probably the most hurt by Dina. Maybe one day we can heal as a family like the Gorgas and Giudices did. Miracles have happened on #RHONJ. All it takes is for both parties to want it at the same time and be sincere about wanting it. (That’s the key.)

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Here is what Jacqueline said about being in touch with Teresa since their text message exchange:
    I saw her at Joe’s father’s wake and we hugged each other. Other than that, we have only had a few exchanges and her responses to my texts were always pleasant but cold, short, and non-engaging. I’m totally OK with that now. I worry about her and her family, but I only want true, caring, supportive friends and real, sincere people in my circle. I still wish her and her family peace and happiness, but I’ve realized that she doesn’t have the qualities of a friend that I want in my life right now. I’ve let go.
    Here is what she had to say about selling her home:
    We’ve had a lot of lookers but no takers. For now, we’re going to keep it up for sale. Who knows, we might just have to stay here? LOL! Whatever is meant to be, will be. http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-6/blogs/jacqueline-laurita/jacqueline-on-her-status-with-te

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Jacqueline created a fuss after the reunion taped for season 6, claiming Nicole told her she prejudged Jac because Dina said she was crazy. Teresa Aprea denied that Dina said that to Nicole, which compelled Jac to tweet a text message from Nicole where Nicole wrote that DINA AND A LOT OF PEOPLE said Jac was crazy.

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js A RHONJ fan tweeted Dina and asked her, “I know you can’t comment but can you at least say if you have any interest in returning next season?” On October 20th Dina responded and shocked her followers when she replied, “NONE my soul can’t be around horrible people.”

As you saw, I made the decision not to share our reaction to the outcome of the sentencing. It was an extremely hard day for this family, and I believe issues this serious are meant to be private. I know I’ve asked you before, but continue to pray for their family.” Throughout season 6 Dina refused to discuss the Giudices’ legal issues.
    @dinamanzo never ONCE mentionned anything about Teresa's case throughout the entire season even in this last episode! That's LOYALTY! #RHONJ — Audrey V. Pani (@veepani) October 20, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js The following are comments from various viewers about the Wakile’s ‘verdict party’ with the Lauritas in Kathy’s kitchen:
    They’re all pathetic, including Rosie! BRAVO basically fired them all because they were boring and irrelevant but films them because of the sentencing, and they agree to it because they’re desperate for any camera time possible. Call me a cynic, but in that kitchen scene, everyone’s eyes were cast downward…so the camera wouldn’t capture all the dry eyes in the house. All they had to do was cut up an onion – they have no commitment to their acting! Jacqueline tried to cry but the botox wouldn’t let her, so she wrote a book instead, in the form of a text (the usual), and sent it to Tre. Oh, this happened at the Wakiles verdict party where they all gathered to celebrate (well, not really but that’s what I’m calling it). Jacqueline and Kathy fake cried in each others arms. It really was a verdict party at the Wakiles. Both Jacqueline and Kathy feed stories to another relatively new blog that is anti-Teresa and anti-Dina (they even had a clock on their website for a ‘countdown to lockdown’) and only publish positive blogs about the two of them. Oh Bravo, that sh*t was SO scripted! I think the only cast member that was genuinely upset was Joey, and that’s why Bravo didn’t film his reaction. These people and their crying is what gets me too. It’s much more realistic to just be quiet, stfu, and have somber moment of silence than to try and squeeze out tears. I don’t blame Teresa for not wanting to reach out to Jacqueline…she said some pretty horrific things about Tre and Joe, whether it’s true or not; it just doesn’t inspire anyone to reconnect a friendship. Jac went for broke and put all their shit on blast and now she wants to be friends again. Yeah, right. Who ever wants to say this is not the “The f*cking Teresa show over here” (Melissa circa Season 3) is in denial. Right or wrong, everyone’s story line is centered around her. Kathy’s heart was gleaming with underlined joy so bad that is was shining through her 5 pounds of makeup. Richie, save your concerns now. You really called it. “Put the bish on a stick and roast her”. Wishes do come true! Jac – bish please. Chris – fake and seemed drunk. “What do you want to do?”. Like this was all about Jac. Who cares wtf she wants to do. Mind your business! I almost fast forwarded through the FAKE scenes with Chris, Jaq, Rosie, Rich, Kathy, Nicole and Bobby. But, I am glad I watched and saw how phony and ridiculous they are. Nicole had to fight smiling when she read Teresa’s sentence. Doesn’t that idiot know the show is OVER without Teresa?? I loved how Jack was “crying” but had no tears or blotchy red face. She’s as phony as they come. Definitely pre-written. Also, Kathy had her lower face covered with her hand – was she laughing? Also, when Jac was sobbing her hair covered her face. All I could think of was if they were upset it was because they would not have a show or job since without Tre there is no show. This is the only way that Jacqueline can make herself relevant on the show. For some reason Andy seems to feel that the destruction of their friendship is an important plot point that needs to be explored. He asks Tre about Jacqueline in every interview. He asked specifically if Jacqueline texted Tre after the sentencing. Jacqueline is truly the most psychopathic of all the NJ housewives. What makes her so dangerous is she is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. She has turned on and abused every one who has crossed her path, and unlike Teresa, who is much less intelligent, Jac has been the most conniving and scheming in a sneaky, underhanded way. From the beginning when she abused her daughter, to befriending then turning on Danielle, then Theresa, and now Dina – she repeats her cunning pattern over and over. She is a truly vile and disgusting excuse for a human being. She exploits her son’s condition with the same crying on cue she has done about everything the past 6 seasons.
    #RHONJ Ratings climbed back up to 2 Million last Sunday… Was it the magic of @JacLaurita ? — RealHousewivesPics (@RHousewivesPics) September 27, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Can’t believe she is still taking credit for the ratings rise. It was for Teresa’s sentencing you delusional attention seeker. Like we all tuned in for her repeated storylines: 1. Using her child to sell black water 2. Phone harassment of Teresa 3. Eating cannolis whilst boring Kathy Bravo cannot be that stupid to think anyone cared about her?! Surely they understood that as the sentencing loomed and happened, people’s curiosity about the Giudice’s spiked ratings, not some neurotic, babbling nit wit fake crying and talking about her fake concern over Teresa. She keeps parading her son on national TV. Yes, it is heartbreaking that young Nicolas is autistic, but that doesn’t mean she has to expose him to harsh criticisms that come along with being on this show. Jaq wasn’t sincere in her concern over Teresa and family. But, rather, she was hopeful that she’d take Teresa’s place. Jaq is like Brandi. Loves to spill truths. Then acts all offended if any truth about her is spilled. Both have a fondness for wine, for twittering. Brandi tells her haters to STFU. Jaq tells her haters she has dirt on them. Only a matter of time before the “fairytale” unravels. Jaq and Chris are facing their own legal woes. Played out for the world to see. Dina, unlike Teresa, isn’t about to stick around and let Jaq get the upper hand. The Real Housebitches of NJ (yeah Jim, I included YOU in this mix) should morph into a new show called New Jersey’s Most Wanted. Each month Bravo will “go deep” into the criminality of NJ’s famewhore wanna-bes that live beyond their means by engaging in either their own shady dealings and/or date shady characters. So to the Tre and Juicy situation, they can add Whacko and Chris Laurita and their bankruptcy issues, Kim D and her mobster boyfriend, Joey and Melissa and their tenant issues, Sal’s labor law violations, Jim the Troll’s cancer scam, that weird car dealer guy, Victoria Gotti’s luvin’ fambly, Prostitution Whore’s criminal — yet exciting! — past, Albert Manzo’s sexcapades and and his ties to the disgraced NYPD chief Bernie Kerik, Al’s father’s being folded like a cheap suit in the trunk of a car and ……who have I missed? That sounds like a lot of shows for a couple of seasons. The Bravo clan – Melissa, Joe, Kathy, Rosie, etc… only show support for the cameras. In real life, they don’t want to be associated with what’s going down.
    Rumor has it taping for season 7 of RHONJ starts near the end of October. They are rushing it so they can get as much as possible of Teresa before she heads to prison on January 5th. Rumor also has it that season 7 basically will be cut in half due to Teresa’s sentencing, and that all the cast are getting half the pay because they won’t be shooting as much as they would during a normal season. Producers should have enough footage of Teresa to make another short season like season 6 (compared to seasons 2-5). Teresa will still be the star of the show, and the final episode(s) of season 7 could be footage of Joe taking care of their daughters. Teresa will probably only have to serve 12-13 months of her 15-month sentence, so she’ll be out by the time they start taping season 8 – the only thing she’ll miss will be the taping of the reunion for season 7. UPDATE: WaWaWaWHAT! at RT DMed/tweeted Jim Marchese on October 27, 2014, asking him “to confirm if they are currently filming.” Jim answered, saying, “they are not filming right now.” UPDATE 10/30/14: Us Weekly’s source says Teresa is open to taping during the time period leading up to her incarceration:
    Teresa Giudice only has a couple more months with her family before she has to surrender to serve her 15-month prison sentence — and Bravo may be there to catch it all on film. In the new issue of Us Weekly, sources reveal exclusively to Us that the Real Housewives star is “open” to allowing cameras in on her final days. According to a source, Bravo is “pressing hard” to tape extra footage of Giudice before she begins her sentence on Jan. 5. Producers are hoping to capture the star spending Christmas with her husband Joe and their four daughters, Gia, 13, Gabriella, 10, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5. “They want her walking through her house for the final time and taking out her extensions to prep for jail,” the insider adds of the reality star, who will serve her time before her husband’s 41-month sentence. Although Teresa’s rep denies the story, the source adds: “Teresa is open — for the right money.” http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/teresa-giudice-open-to-letting-bravo-film-her-days-before-prison-20142910
    By WireWrap, PreviouslyTVForum, on season 7: 1. They, Bravo, have Teresa/Joe over the barrel so to speak – they are desperate for money. 2. It would be another very short season because she leaves for prison in less than 3 months. 3. There is only so much of poor Teresa the viewers will put up with, especially after this season. 4. Watching Teresa/Joe and the girls keep living the same over-the-top lifestyle, and supporting it, would not be good for Bravo as a whole – more and more viewers would get angry and stop watching Bravo. 5. I do not think Teresa will act any different nor allow the viewers to see what is really going on. 6. It would be extremely cruel to film those 4 girls as the time gets closer to Teresa going to prison. GossipCop cleared up the rumor perpetuated by RadarOnline that Teresa is filming a Christmas special – she is not (see story below). Those “inside sources” at RadarOnline and other similar sites probably are just staffers who write whatever they want to drive traffic.
    Teresa Giudice NOT Filming Christmas Special To “Say Goodbye” By GossipCop October 22, 2014 Teresa Giudice is NOT filming a Christmas special to “say goodbye” to her fans before beginning her 15-month prison sentence, despite a new report. Gossip Cop can bust this rumor, which began on Tuesday when one webloid falsely claimed Bravo offered the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star at least $250,000 to film the holiday send-off. According to RadarOnline, Giudice accepted the offer because she’s worried about how she’s going to buy Christmas gifts for her four daughters. A so-called “source” tells the webloid that Giudice “didn’t want to cut back” on their extravagant presents. RadarOnline’s alleged “insider” also notes that the special will give Giudice a way to “say goodbye to her fans” before she enters prison in January. It sounds like a touching story, except for the fact that it is not true. A Bravo spokesperson tells Gossip Cop “there is no truth to this report.” As Gossip Cop previously reported, Giudice was sentenced to 15 months in prison for fraud charges on October 2, while her husband Joe will spend 41 months behind bars. The couple was also ordered to pay $414,888 in restitution. Prior to their sentencing, Teresa and Joe pleaded guilty to bankruptcy fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and wire fraud, and failing to pay taxes between 2004-2008. RadarOnline has frequently had trouble reporting on the “Real Housewives” franchise. The outlet once falsely claimed the entire “Real Housewives of New York City” cast was being fired when Aviva Drescher was the only person to be let go. The webloid also fabricated a story about “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville refusing to participate in a dramatic on-air intervention held by her co-star Kim Richards. http://www.gossipcop.com/teresa-giudice-christmas-special-bravo-holiday-show/
    At the Daily Mail on November 7, 2014, “Peppermint” from New York City, commented with “inside information.” She claimed Bravo is paying Teresa’s legal fees and said that Teresa is not quitting and that she is in talks with Bravo and holding out for more money.

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Jacqueline so wants her storyline for season 7 to be her feud with Dina, and Chris must want it too since they desperately need the money and contracts. When Dina appeared on WWHL after the ‘secrets revealed’ episode on October 26, 2014, Jacqueline tweeted the following.
    Jacqueline Laurita @JacLaurita I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce. So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t. @Andy Jacqueline Laurita retweeted Catherine Lopresti @Lopresti47 @JacLaurita @Andy don’t you just love the power of a twist?

    Dina tweeted the following reply.
    Dina Manzo @dinamanzo Maybe if Jacqueline would get off twitter and stay out of it my brother and I can one day mend. DONE with this
    To which Jacqueline responded with the following tweet.
    Jacqueline Laurita He tried a few times and you wouldn’t meet with him. #shame @dinamanzo 26 Oct 2014

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js It’s obvious Jacqueline thrives on stirring up drama for other people as long as she comes out the victor. And, of course, Jim Marchese had to give his two cents. He’s the male version of Jacqueline.
    James Marchese retweeted RealHousewivesPics @RHousewivesPics I want to see Jacqueline vs Dina next season, like a real fight #RHONJ James Marchese retweeted Ha.. Jac Melissa Amber.. VS Dina Resa and Nicole. Throw in a little Danielle and U have #RHONJ season 7! My prediction.

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Rino and Joe Gorga made it clear that they don’t like Jim, so why doesn’t he go after them rather than Dina. He must be afraid to pick on anyone but women and his former best friend Bobby.
    Excerpt from Reality Tea, October 27, 2014: Dina Manzo appeared on Watch What Happens Live last night. During the show, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy Cohen, “I asked my husband to reach out to Dina when she went through the divorce. So did I and I encouraged them to meet. She wouldn’t.” Dina replied, “That’s not true. Just because you say it doesn’t mean it’s true. I wanted to meet with my brother more than anything.” In response, Jacqueline tweeted to Andy, “Chris Laurita favorited my tweet. He knows the truth.” And, “I still have our text messages that I can show you.” Does anyone delete texts? Jacqueline, who lacks a filter and a babysitter, continued to tweet. When a random follower said, “You are such a great person I can’t see you ever coming between your husband and his sister,” Jacqueline responded, “I would never! She chose the separation!” Random from Jacqueline: “I’m so grateful to have a husband that truly loves me as much as I love him. We have mutual respect for each other.” Jacqueline tweeted, “You’re lying is what keeps getting u into trouble Dina in ALL areas of ur life. Y do u keep hurting ur family? You know we’ve ALL tried.” Dina tweeted, “Maybe if Jacqueline would get off twitter and stay out of it my brother and I can one day mend. DONE with this.” Jacqueline responded, “He tried a few times and you wouldn’t meet with him. #shame” Random from Jacqueline: “My husband are sitting here together realizing how lucky we actually are to have each other & the great friends & family that we have! #real” Jacqueline added, “Chris had enough & gave up trying 2 have a relationship with Dina. She has hurt him too much. She’s got 2 make the move. He’ll be here(w/ME).” When a fan pointed out, “Dina seems to be the common denominator with the family squabbles,” Jacqueline responded, “Bingo!” Random from Jacqueline: “I know u guys LOVE that we are on a reality show (&onTwitter) & you get a peek into our lives. You must find something relatable in all of us.” Call me crazy, but I cannot relate to a grown woman who airs her family’s dirty laundry on Twitter. It’s tacky and inappropriate.
    Jacqueline Lauritas SO predictable. Nasty tweets, then tweets of "proof", then few RTs of support she has, then tweets how great life is — Ry (@ry_b25) October 27, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js With exception of the real family drama on this show, this is all fake and they’re nothing but low-paid amateur actors and actresses. The twitter wars with the new cast are fake too. They do it to drum up more interest in the show and keep fans engaged. Jacqueline confirmed this when she tweeted on November 2, 2014 (which she deleted on November 10th):
    “We are on a reality TV show, social media is just an extension of that.”
    On November 7, 2014 Jim Marchese let a viewer know that she is a “moron” for taking the show seriously, and told her that “its a job…#iq 12… Pathetic is you are so stupid you don’t get its entertainment.”
    @Schmandles wow are you a moron…its a job…#iq 12… Pathetic is you are so stupid you don't get its entertainment. — James Marchese (@JLMarchese111) November 8, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js Another viewer replied back to Jim, saying: “Seems like you’re stirring the pot just so you get your contract renewed to be a bitch on the Housewives … Pathetic you are.”
    @JLMarchese111 seems like you're stirring the pot just so you get your contract renewed to be a bitch on the Housewives … Pathetic you are — janettt (@isaidsothatzy) November 8, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js AllAboutTRH captured a screen shot of a reply from Jim to a viewer who tweeted: “Your children will view the show someday and I know they will be disappointed with you and how you handled your emotions.” Jim tweeted back: “No, my children understand business and TV. Funny, they get it… they ar 6 – 14… why don’t you. #iq 12” A day before that exchange, on November 6, 2014 Andy tweeted Jim, telling him: “”We need to talk about you on Twitter.” Jim replied to Andy: “@Bravotv no Andy…we need to talk.”
    @Bravotv no Andy…we need to talk. 😘 — James Marchese (@JLMarchese111) November 7, 2014
    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js On November 10, 2014, Jim tweeted that fighting with the cast and twitter wars are a game to him and that it’s his job, and he told viewers to not take it too seriously. He also tweeted: “It’s called a show…entertainment. It is kinda my job…actually it is my job come to think of it.”

    LaraM says: November 7, 2014 at 11:51 am at AllAboutTRH Did anyone see the outake on Bravotv from NJ Reunion, where they are all laughing about Jim tweeting and farting in bathroom. I mean all, except for Teresa, who was in her own zone and checking her phone, probably for kids and parents? It is like so much of this, we are getting punked. With exception of the real family drama on this show, I wonder about the rest… I am not invested in this show after half a decade when Reunion is over. Let the fools continue. But, I do agree that the viewers are majorly played. Kylee says: November 9, 2014 at 11:30 am at AllAboutTRH YOU NAILED IT, I WROTE THIS LAST NIGHT I wonder if there was a plan from the beginning for “the twins” to hate on Teresa Giudice. Kathy and Rosie are really really good friends with Abbey Feiler and the twins, I mean really close friends. Read Abbeys twitter TL – ALL OF IT!! A couple things stood out to me. First Abbey always advertises upcoming RHONJ episodes and will mention everybody on show but Teresa Giudice. I mean NEVER. Second Abbey constantly RT a/b her being the next housewife and bringing Rosie and Kathy back. Abbey retweeted Rosie attacking T fans. She seems to be at war with Jim on twitter – I call BS. She claims to have blocked him but she still interacts in the drama w/him so she didn’t block him. Or is Abbey advertising herself in hopes for a position with on the HW for next season drama. This made up drama could help her get on the show. Also Matt Shultz is Melissa’s ex and the twins friend who they brought on show?? Why won’t they answer questions a/b Melissa knowing him. I read on another forum awhile back that the twins wanted their friend as “the new housewives.” The BS attack on Teresa Giudice was just so contrived: the fact that the twins knew Teresa would be gone soon and the watched as Dina was pretty much bullied off the show. I call BS on the Jim and Bobby feud/ twins…The twins have thrown shade at everyone, even Dina and Melissa. I honestly believe they came on with the intentions of being the breakout stars at any cost. The twins are disgusting by dragging Teresa in their self-created drama and kicking a woman when she’s already down. The only ones who have kept the rumor going is the twins – that alone speaks volumes. I mean, come on, Teresa Giudice is the only one who hasn’t been gossiping a/b it, WHY?? b/c she doesn’t give a rats ass a/b it. I can’t wrap my brain around the fact that people can’t see through all their BS. Kathy and Rosie are the biggest joke to hit reality TV. Kathy made a point to talk a/b Teresa’s legal issues in every scene she was in, and then the reaction to the sentencing was a way for her to twist the knife a little more; she looked like she was smiling to me. I can’t stand that fat bug eyed gutter rat. Rosie, I’m on the fence b/c when Kathy is not around Rosie is freaking cool, but Kathy comes around Rosie turns into a foul mouthed angry wart hog craving body parts!! Melissa Just shut up!!! Joey and his freakin toys out the window REALLY?? Jacqueline is the reason restraining orders were created. Anyhow, my brain is just all over the place with this show. I’m done with this show. It’s sad that a show I loved so much has turned so dark and ugly!! LAST NIGHT ON TWITTER Wow, Amber, Jim, & Twins seemed to have made up posting pictures of them together. Twin 1 said she forgives Jim b/c he apologized to her mother unlike other stubborn bitches!! Her twitter TL speaks volumes a/b the BS they pulled on viewers. Like I said – was it a plan to Bully Dina off show,and go after Teresa G. Jim has crucified twins/Bobby/Rino on twitter but now its all forgiven REALLY!! Have viewers been played by new cast. Twins being rude to people on twitter yet again. Like I said Rosie and Kathy are really close friends with Abbey and twins. Jim & Amber are just bashing Dina nonstop, even went after her friend Luke. What kind of woman would support and join in this kinda behavior from their husband… LaraM says: November 9, 2014 at 4:44 pm at AllAboutTRH Wow, thanks @Kylee!!! Your facts about Abbey and crew were spot on to most of my intuition and in past reading behind scenes. So, one question. Melissa’s old BF, how did I miss that? I saw Luke and Amber get into it. I peruse Twitter and am astounded that all Marcheses talk about is the show, nothing else. Also, I noticed that with TeResa. I also saw on Bravotv how they showed a clip of in-between takes at Reunion. I think they moved it under “Shows” and RHONJ. All but Teresa and Dina, rolling their eyes, were laughing. As Dina said, “This show is so f’ed up”. Jim Tweets in the Bathroom? http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-6/videos/jim-tweets-in-the-bathroom #RHONJ: Hilarious Extras! http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/rhonj-hilarious-extras# Hopeful says: November 9, 2014 at 4:50 pm at AllAboutTRH P.S. The twins spread this rumor about their mother and spoke about it every episode. Come on. Their mother is obviously more interesting then them. They are Trash bags. Teresa G didn’t hurt anybody’s mother. The twins used her for a storyline. LaraM says: November 9, 2014 at 4:46 pm at AllAboutTRH Also, Andy never rebutted the vetting contracts of Jim’s. Makes sense. miami53 says: November 10, 2014 at 11:49 am at AllAboutTRH Like I’ve said “This is all fake and they’re nothing but actors and actresses”.. Jazmin says: November 10, 2014 at 12:20 pm at AllAboutTRH Yep. They believe the audience are really oblivious to what they trying to portray. If anything we’re sitting here playing along as they probably been faking the funk the whole time on their friendships going south. Cheryl says: November 10, 2014 at 12:12 pm at AllAboutTRH Yes!!!! I have thought this all along. It is just all so weird how TerresA is making such a big deal to blame Tre when Jim is the one who opened his mouth. And she just isn’t letting up on that. I really think they all including Bobby planned this craziness to be on the show. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see a pic of Bobby and Jim in the near future. I think the fighting was all for show. Don’t trust any of these looneys. Taco Tuesday says: November 10, 2014 at 12:24 pm at AllAboutTRH These newbies have been in cahoots all season. I don’t believe for a minute that any of the fighting was real because all six of them are DESPERATE to stay on this show.

    //platform.twitter.com/widgets.js On November 21, 2014, NY Daily News reported that RHONJ will be on hiatus until Teresa is released from prison.
    The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is going to jail along with Teresa Giudice. A source close to the production tells Confidenti@l that Bravo expects to shelve the hit show until the future Jersey jailbirdgets out of the slammer. While other members of the cast have been anxiously waiting for seventh-season contracts to drop on their doorsteps, a network insider tells us that “there is zero moving forward anytime soon for ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey.’ ” “If we’re doing a season seven, Teresa will be part of it,” the source says. “We would shoot it when she’s out of jail.” With the disgraced reality star set to report to federal prison in Danbury, Conn., for 15 months starting Jan. 5, it could be spring 2016 before Giudice is back in front of the cameras. However, Bravo insiders are not expecting the mother of four, who pleaded guilty to four counts of fraud, to serve her full term. “The season for ‘Housewives’ is not consistent in the way that the other shows are, like ‘OK, episode one is always Jan. 1’ or whatever,” explained the insider, “ ‘Real Housewives of New York’ missed an entire year before we brought it back. It’s not that we have to do it within a certain amount of time. We do it when we know it’s right and when we want to do it.” “The network has not made any decision on how we’re moving forward with (‘The Real Housewives Of New Jersey’),” the source added. “We have nothing going forward, we have no (footage) in the can, nothing that we’re shooting right now. “We’re completely figuring out what to do with the show. We can’t really figure it out until we see what’s going to happen with her and the rest of the cast,” added the source, who insisted that Bravo doesn’t plan to shoot scenes with Giudice before she dons her orange jumpsuit. Giudice’s husband, Joe, was sentenced to 41 months in jail after pleading guilty to five counts of fraud and failure to file income taxes. U.S. District Judge Esther Salas is allowing the pair to serve out their sentences at different times so that one of them can always be with their kids, Gia, 13, Gabriella, 9, Milania, 8, and Audriana, 5. Giudice could not be reached for comment. A rep for Bravo said: “The network has made no decisions about ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ as we just finished airing season six.”

    WWHL September 11, 2016, Guests Siggy Flicker and Caroline Manzo

    Caroline weighs in on the Teresa and Kathy/Rosie situation: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So I’d like Teresa to open up her heart and just understand that people make mistakes and say bad things they don’t mean sometimes and I think it’s time she kind of grows up and accepts them back.”

    Siggy agrees – somewhat. “I think Kathy’s great, I think Rosie’s great, but I think Teresa’s even better, I’m sorry. What people don’t understand is Rosie and Kathy’s mother and Teresa’s father are brother and sister and so it starts there. There is bitterness there. So it’s generations upon generations that are not getting along. And I think right now Teresa says ‘I don’t want to have a relationship with you.’ You should say ‘fine, back off.’”

    Caroline jumps in “for the right reason.” Siggy disagrees, “listen, sometimes not everybody needs to have the right reason and I’m sure we’re going to find out sooner or later about the right reason of why she doesn’t want a relationship with them, but Kathy and Rosie are not desperate. They want their family back but they should step back, which they are and give Teresa her space right now. She’s been through hell and back.”

    Andy reads a Tweet from Dina Manzo, saying that she thinks Siggy gives good advice. Andy asks Caroline if things are still all good with Dina and she shakes her head no. Andy says “are you mad at me for asking??” and she says “no, it’s over.” Caroline says “what are you gonna do?” Andy is very sad to hear they aren’t speaking anymore.

    Dina Tweeted in again, but this time letting it rip at Caroline! “I’m sick w the flu for 7 days & not in the mood for this shit. I said one day I will snap and I might be about to. I was told NEVER to reach out/speak to her or her family again. Disinvited to holidays? But I’m the rock she’s trying to get blood out of? No reason to go there publicly. I was asked that same question on my press tour for my skincare & protected “family” by saying all is good. I’ve kept my mouth shut for yrs to protect my parents & husband at the time. I’m done. My parents can’t be hurt anymore than they are now. So go ahead get all the attention you want for your show…while you’re at it call your parents. DONE.”

    Caroline said: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people, Teresa needs to open her heart and realize people make mistakes.” What about YOU Caroline? Dina must be is sick of Caroline’s bigger-sister-know-it-all-holier-than-thou TV persona. Caroline wants Teresa to be forgiving, but she doesn’t show the same to even her own family. Does she not think her own sister, Dina, is “good people”?

    Dina Manzo added,

    Dina Manzo ‏@dinamanzo

    So go ahead get all the attention you want for your show…while you’re at it call your parents. DONE

    Summary of the feud:

    Caroline is close to her brother, Chris. And she supports Jacqueline. And Jacqueline has done some really awful things to Dina. So, of course, Caroline’s support of Jacqueline despite all this is hurtful to Dina.

    Consider this:

    Strike one for Jac: Chris was allegedly engaged to Dina’s friend when he got Jacqueline pregnant on a trip to Vegas.

    And Jacqueline has been antagonistic with Dina. At that table flip dinner, she exposed Dina as being the one that revealed the Staub expose book at that salon. Dina has said that Jacqueline was using Danielle, and intentionally feeding Danielle’s obsessive hatred of her.

    Jac supposedly told Danielle that Dina forged Lexi’s dad’s signature on the Bravo contract. Danielle contacted Dina’s ex, and encouraged him to sue Dina

    Then Dina held out on her Bravo contract, refusing to sign, unless Danielle was fired. She wanted Jac and Caroline to join her. They didn’t. Naturally, Dina felt betrayed.

    And Jacqueline is rumored to have sourced multiple negative tabloid stories about Dina. Even one that targeted her charity — Project LadyBug. The tax exempt status or something.

    Caroline’s loyalty is with Chris. And Jacqueline is part of that package.

    It was a serious situation. Meddling in child custody and encouraging Dina’s ex to sue Dina? Even giving him contact information at Bravo to serve petitions and discovery?

    Even Caroline was outraged with Danielle about it. Remember Caroline crying and admonishing Danielle about it at the reunion?

    If Jacqueline instigated something so awful, and conspired with Danielle, but never took any responsibility for it — well, I completely understand not getting past it.
