Monica Chacon, Kim G and Danielle Staub Shared a Table at the Season 2 Posche Fashion Show; Nancy Grace Predicts the Giudices Will Go to Jail
In July 2010, Frank of Ranus Reviews interviewed Kim D and Alina, her buyer, after the Posche Fashion Show in season 2 premiered.
This is my interview with Kim D and Alina from the Posche Boutique in Wayne, NJ. We talked all about Danielle and the Posche fashion show. Learn what Kim D did before Posche and what the hell she was thinking when she interrupted Teresa at her housewarming party. I also asked her if the drama on the show is real, if the NJ Housewives have set the bar in the drama department, if she is concerned about Danielle taking boxing lessons, if she thinks Danielle pulled out her own hair extensions, if she bought Danielle’s crying, her relationship with Kim G and much more!
In the interview, Kim D conveys that within a year after opening Posche in Wayne, NJ, she was on international TV because of RHONJ, and explained that “the worldwide televised fashion show” in season 2 was “our first one.” Kim D refers to Danielle Staub as “the big D” or “the dirty D.” She claims that Danielle “was an acquaintance that I’ve known for a year from her shopping here, that’s it,” and elaborates that she was clearly making friends with Teresa and Jacqueline at the time.
As far as the Posche fashion show (PFS) in season 2, she explains that Kim G bought a table and asked Danielle to sit with her; however, Danielle was two hours late but they (and the 230 guests) waited for her, which is why the show lasted from 6:30 PM to about midnight.
Kim D expresses her opinion about why Teresa made a point to confront Danielle after the show: “I think that Teresa had had enough with all this talk behind her back, the talk about the house [being in foreclosure]. Now what I heard through the grapevine is that the big D made friends with an enemy of Joe – the attorneys that have something to do with what’s going on with the house – and brought her [Monica Chacon] to my fashion show to kind of needle Teresa, and Teresa saw her. I think Teresa wanted to get in her face and say, ‘Listen, you want to talk behind my back. Lets say it face-to-face, women-to-women.’ Danielle can’t do that.”
Note from Fame: Melissa was contacting Danielle during this time period – trying to worm her way onto the show by giving Danielle dirt on Teresa and offering to film with her to expose Teresa – so it is possible that Melissa introduced Danielle to Monica. However, I think it is more likely that Kim G is responsible for Monica being at the table she bought for the season 2 PFS.
When Danielle was a guest on WWHL on September 9, 2013, she was shown clips of what the current Housewives said about her during their appearances on the show. On Melissa saying Danielle in-boxed her on Facebook about the sprinkle cookies and that she never met her in person, Danielle said:
“Well, the one truth in there is that we did never meet; however, it was because I wouldn’t allow that to happen. She wanted to film during season 2, and she thought it would be a good way to get back at Teresa. And I said I wanted absolutely nothing to do with that, however, I would forward all her e-mails, which were a lot, to the producers, which I did. Which is how, after two seasons of her being behind the scenes – on camera but behind the scenes – she all the sudden became a person of interest and that’s how she landed on the show. Um, I think that it would be good for her to just come clean. I wanted nothing to do with what she wanted to do to Teresa. It’s not my place. I don’t play with that. Karma has a return policy and it isn’t an exchange.”
Lee on May 15, 2012 said at AllAboutTRH.com:
“Teresa’s bankruptcy was exposed by Danielle at the 1st Posche fashion show when she said Teresa’s house was in foreclosure (Melissa fed Danielle this information, which was a lie). After that episode aired, the wave of articles on the web and in the magazines started. Monica Chacon, whose husband was the lawyer representing Joe Giudice’s partner, fed a lot of dirt to Kim G,and she in turn fed it to Danielle and the bloggers. When they were ready to film season 3, Teresa was forced to talk about it because the producers invited Monica to the 2nd Posche Fashion show (season 3 episode 2 – she sat with Melissa, her sisters, Kathy Wakile and Kim G) and the Gorga’s Christmas party (season 3 episode 10 – she came with Kim G but was invited by Melissa and producers). Remember when Monica introduced herself to Melissa and Kathy as the lawyer suing Teresa. Let’s not forget, the Wakiles and the Gorgas were asked to be on the show if they would address Teresa’s personnel finances.”
On Kim G, Kim D describes her as “my sister-in-law.” She says she introduced Danielle to Kim G at Danielle’s luncheon because Danielle wanted to met her because of “her means.” She remarks that Kim G is kind of a people pleaser – and even though she did “play both sides,” she didn’t mean any harm; she just wants to have fun.
Kim D accuses Danielle of doing things to her and her business, but says she doesn’t want to discuss it, but declares that “we Sicilians don’t forgot!” She tells the interviewer that she wants to be nice and cool and mysterious.
Kim D reveals that at Teresa’s housewarming party, she didn’t interrupt her but was physically pushed by someone from Bravo and, “once pushed up there, she had to say something because she knew exactly what they wanted” – “but I do love Teresa and Joe and their house.”
Kim D thinks 90% of the show is real and says there’s a “little provoking but not staged drama.” She explains that the producers wanted the drama yet didn’t expect what they got at the first PFS, but they were thrilled.
She asserts that Posche has never done better since the first PFS aired.
Hat Tip: Thank you pjbottoms for reminding me about this interview.
On October 28, 2013, Nancy Grace appeared on WWHL and predicted that the Giudices will be convicted and go to prison because the charges are “founded” and “they were in it together” and “you don’t mess with the feds.”
Nancy Grace said:
“Don’t mess with the feds when it comes to money. Never mess with the tax man. Never mess with the feds. Alright, they have no mercy. I predict they’re going down. And [as] much as Martha Stewart was used, I think they will be used as an example to other people.”
“Did she sign her name on those documents? Did they get money from banks loans, etc. from signing those documents? Did they, Andy, did they?!”
In a related story, according to NJ.com, Joe Giudice will go to trial for state forgery charges on November 19, 2013.
