[quote] This season of RHONJ is so blatantly fake its ridiculous. That fight last nite that Melissa and Teresa had to have been staged.
You're wrong. That was so NOT staged.
Remember, this was filmed during the airing of last season, and Teresa was pissed that Melissa and her brother were going to be on the show. This was HER show.
The way that Melissa held her tongue until she couldn't hold it anymore, was admirable. And that girl (Melissa) is a fighter. She stood there up against Teresa, and made a logical, coherent, and 100% true case against Teresa, and all Teresa could do was stand there like an idiot.
Melissa is many things, but she's not stupid. She called out Teresa, and Teresa had no defense.
I agree 100% with Caroline, that Teresa wants to see Joe and Melissa divorced. I assume it's because Teresa married a total loser, and she needs some kind of affirmation that everybody's marriage is the same.
Remember, Teresa never wanted Joe and Melissa on the show. She is very jealous of Melissa, and Caroline and Jacqueline are "her friends." When the season started airing, Caroline and Jac started liking Melissa, and that's where this season began.
I think that the majority of the Housewives shows are fake, but this episode was definitely not.

We don't like to say "jail." We like to say "going away." Give me a break. They're obviously all criminals, right? Tell me how any one of those goombahs could operate a busines without mob ties, graft and corruption.
And there's always an unhappy fat daughter with two brothers, sitting in a self-made shadow, marinating in her own victimhood.
The boys don't manage to aim any higher than "strip club owner" when it comes to career options.
I used to watch the show for Dena Manzo, driving down the Garden State in her black 500SL, expertly colored tresses hovering around her head in a ballet of blondness. Yes, I adored Dena.

Dina, yes. (Not Dena) The rumor is she beards for Al's brother Tommy who lives elsewhere with his boyfriend. She always seemed to be alone in her little country-french mansion, with Grandma Wrinkles and her smart kid Lexi (not Tommy's)
She left the show after the subject of the Manzo's mob connections were brought up on a reunion show. Her father-in-law was, the 300-lb "Tiny" Manzo, was found naked, wrapped in plastic, and shot numerous times, in the back of his Lincoln. Maybe she was afraid her relationship with her husband would come out also.

I don't think any of these people are wealthy. I am convinced Gorga is headed down the bankruptcy path.
I think what we see on television is every nickel they can beg, borrow, or steal proudly converted into a tacky Greek statue or godawful gold lamé outfit. They don't own anything that isn't on display, and a lot of what IS on display is a mirage of debt, theft, and Bravo designers.
Joe Giudice is clearly a criminal and a thug and not a businessman. Teresa I feel a little sorry for. She is just soooo stupid, and now, her stupidity for public consumption is her household's only source of income.
Soon enough we'll see the Joe and Melissa relationship is the same dynamic.

Work & partner time demands forced me to give up this show at the start of last season. Can someone fill me in on what's so horrible about Teresa? Is she really the villain in the fight with her bro & sis in law? Do the other housewives really hate her now too? Who is going to jail?

Looks like bad hairplugs to me -- like he had pubes grafted on his head.
Also, he's proportioned like a midget even though he's 5'5" or 5'6". He has stubby little arms and small, fat-fingered hands. Kinda like a guido Orc.

Now I am really confused. Radar has a story today about how the gorgas lived in a 500k house until they moved into the spec home (for the show). So why is teresa saying that Melissa only married her brother for money? Would a gold digger be happy in a 500k house? That is very middle class. Also, where does Melissa get the cash for all of the designer clothes and shoes?

Both the Gorga's Montvale and Tom's River homes are up for sale. Since they built it as a spec house they only had to make interest payments. Now they have to make balloon payments they can't afford. I think they're asking $3.8 Million for the Montvale house which is worth about $1.2. They'll move to LA where Missy's recording career will evaporate and eventually settle into a small place with a pool in Reseda.

I hate that Teresa is probably thrilled that her sis-in-law is broke. I knew, we all knew, that something funky was up with the Gorgas. Flashes me back to 1st season of RHOOC , when Slade looked gtreat, lived in a big house, and (pre housing market falling out) , was a high flying mortage broker, with Jo, his little GF. He wore expensive suits, made a ton of money, and life was beautiful......we thought. Next thing we knew, his house was forclosed, and he was broke - so , other than living at Gretchen's, he's been homeless, and unemployed for 4-5 years now. Seems to happen to most of them on these shows.

|by Caroline||reply 53||05/12/2012|
I'm sorry to rock the boat with some people on this thread with what I'm about to say, but I have to be honest. I know I'm going to be lambasted.
I can't, and I do mean can't, STAND!!, Dina!! She is a major snob, and she thinks she is above everybody. When she had her own show on HGTV on how to give parties, which was laughable. She thought she was hot stuff, and she was going to be on her own becoming another Martha Stewart. At the time, she ditched and bad mouthed her sister, Caroline, who was honestly responsible for getting Dina on RHONJ and setting a foundation for Dina to get some fame. Also, at the time, Dina got fatheaded tweeting what a bunch of losers are on the RHONJ and she tweeted that I'm over their drama, etc. Now! this major phonyâs show bombed, and she coming back on RHONJ!! What a major, major phony!! Maybe she turned her husband gay?!! LOL!
I like Melissa a lot. I think she is one of the least phonies out of all of them. I really believe she truly loves her husband Joe. Teresa is aware of Melissa and Joe's solid marriage, and she is obviously jealous. Melissa seems like the type of person that if she and her husband went totally broke, she would manage completely. I think Melissa likes the wealthy lifestyle, but I think she can take it or leave it. However, I think Joe's sexuality is questionable, and on the show they keep throwing that question mark out there. I think her husband Joe is a, major major Italian stud, but he is just too crass.
The person who was asking what does Joe do for a living, he flips homes and he owns rentals. Joe used to be in business with his brother-in-law, Teresa's husband.
I know people on this thread must think I'm loony, but I love Melissa and Joe's decor. Not every piece but I like many pieces. I notice they don't have any antiques in their home, which is a drawl back for me though. However, I love the glitzy decor, and I think itâs definitely not a boring home.
I love Caroline's daughter, and I think she is very real and honest. I think Carolineâs husband is a complete pig when it comes to his daughter. You notice when he talked about his daughterâs future weight loss he told his two sons she'll have gorgeous tits?!! Then, daddy jackass puts on his I-phone a picture of a pretty girl, and he shows the picture to his daughter's boyfriend giggling. Apparently the daughterâs boyfriend has a roving eye for women. How considerate of her father. What kind of shit bag father is that? Any guy who puts my sister down, my dad would beat the crap out of the guy. My sister has had a weight problem though out her life off and on. And my dad never ceased to express fatherly love for my sister, and he has always expressed what a truly intelligent and lovely daughter he has. He thinks the world of my sister no matter how she looks. Once again, I was floored by Caroline's husband. I can't stand that obnoxious turd! Also, I used to like Caroline, but I think the way she is handling her daughter's weight issue is degrading!! Especially she conveys her daughter's weight problem with millions of viewers!! What a witch!

A few thoughts: - Dina and her foundation? Rubbish. All about promoting herself as a philanthropist. Small-time foundations are a really effective way of supporting a cause. They generally don't know what they're doing and lots of times very little, if any, makes its way to the cause in question after the principals pay themselves salaries and lay off their expenses on it.
- I liked Lauren until the last episode where she starting spouting off over and over about wanting to be filthy rich. Get a real aspiration. And maybe a job!
- Danielle would love watching Teresa being piled on. If only Danielle could afford cable...
- I think the Teresa/Melissa confrontation was real and it wasn't. The emotions were real. But clearly the producers made her stall while they told Melissa now's your chance -- your big scene!

Tonight, after the conversation between Joe, and Teresa, by the pool, I am even more convinced that Teresa has both narcissistic personalty disorder, and bordrline personality. She has the absolute inability to see anything wrong in her actions-only in others. Whenever Joe would ask her if she had ever done anything wrong, in all the problems with he, and/or his wife, she simply could not utter a simple 'sure', or 'of course'. She couldnt acknowledge one little thing. it was all about, what Joe, or Melissa, had done. She's got serious mental issues to deal with - but I can see, she'll continue down this mentally destructive path, until she has no friends, or family, speaking to her anymore. Oh, and she's dumb as a clam.

why is she so very different on Celebrity Apprentice? The Donald was very disappointed. he kept trying to get her to flip tables and lose her temper, and she didn't.

R60, I agree, Joe was was acting very calm ,and he admitted being wrong ,but Teresa thinks she doesn't do anything wrong.

I really like Melisa and Joe, even though Joe can get pretty crass.Teresa's husband seems like he is heading for a break down. No wonder why Teresa's husband had an affair. Living with that woman will drive a guy to drive off of a cliff. BTW, Teresa's husband said Melissa has horse face; that is sure laugh! Right! like Teresa is equivalent in beauty to Ava Gardner!

Remember her saying on camera that she was now the breadwinner of the family? If you remember that, then you can see how she has emasculated a "macho" man, who thinks that he should be the one to dictate everything, rather than being moved to the background, as his wife became a celebrity. So he goes to another dimwit who tells him he's the greatest and admires his masculinity and heroism...no "doting" by Teresa will substitute for that.

I feel badly for Teresa. She seems very sweet but very conflicted. I hope she makes amends with her brother.

Why haven't we seen Granny G this season? She really knows how to bring the drama.

I love Granny G, too! I can't wait to see her.

If Teresa made up with her brother, her plot line is over.She wants to milk it for several seasons, making the series about her.But, the series will soon be over, if it isn't already.The producers were successful with making the series about everybody vs. Danielle, but Teresa still has deluded, very stupid supporters who are on the same mental level as she.

Teresa is the sweetest. I met her at a book signing and she loved my shoes!!!! God, I love that woman.

The REAL Real Housewives of NJ:
Caroline: Nowhere near the perfect mother/wife she portrays. Beyond obsessed with controlling every minutia of her children's lives. Al has a mistress and she is ready to walk, right into her kids' live full time. Extremely corrupt and very shady business dealings. The Jersey Water Commission scandal was just the tip of the iceberg. God complex.
Teresa: Loud, brash but not nearly as stupid as one would think. She is about an inch away from divorcing Joe. Was facing serious financial trouble a few years back but got her shit together and worked worked worked to dig herself out of that hole. Basically followed the Bethanny Frankl guide to success with her own little Italian twist and it paid off...big time.
Jaqueline: Certifiably insane. Stripper, hooker, alcoholic. Extremely violent and just recently attacked a man in a bar along with Chis and Joe Gorga. She literally stabbed him in the head with her stiletto and drew blood. Knew her son was autistic for awhile but "played the card" to save her spot on the show. Makes Taylor Armstrong look stable. Both her and Chris are facing serious jail time for bank fraud, money laundering and false asset claims.
Melissa: Her and Joe are practically broke. T are not leaving heir home to get their kids away from Teresa's kids. They are leaving because they are being thrown out after living illegally in it for a few years. Bravo fronted the Gorgas an expensive vacation in the Hamptons to "keep up appearances."
Kathy: Hairdresser. Richie pumps gas. Lives above her means all for the sake of the show. Hates that her sister is a lesbian but will never allow that to be seen on television. Image is everything.
Most of the "Housewives" are damaged in some sort of way (don't even get me started on Bev Hills or NeNe "MY shit don't stink" Leakes) but I do admire the NYC gals. Aviva, Sonja and LuAnn really do care about equal rights and are always willing to lend their time/resources to help raise money for LGBT causes. A lot of what they do goes unreported in the media.

Spill on the sexual proclivities and personalities of men of various franchises, R111. I want to hear about: OC Eddie, OC Doug, OC Terry, ATL Apollo, BH Mauricio, NJ Joe Gorga, and Miami Romain.
|by Caroline||reply 112||06/27/2013|
OC Eddie was a bartender at Ripples in Long Beach in the 90's. ...doesn't mean he's gay, but I tend to think so.
|by Caroline||reply 113||06/27/2013|
[RE113] Really ? I still get the gay vibe off Eddie, but more like a 'gay for pay' / opportunist vibe. He strikes me as one more good-looking / buff guy, working at a gay bar for better tips, and if patron wanted to give him a lot of cash for a night, he'd do the deed. Very flexible, re sex, if the price is right. I used to go to Ripples in the 90's, but would have remembered him.
|by Caroline||reply 114||06/27/2013|
Thanks for the inside info..it all sounds so right.
Especially about Caro and Theresa.
I do admire T b/c it does look like she is always working and she still keeps a smile on her face.

[quote]I want to hear about: OC Eddie, OC Doug, OC Terry, ATL Apollo, BH Mauricio, NJ Joe Gorga, and Miami Romain.
OC Eddie: Straight, really nice guy
OC Doug: Don't know him
OC Terry: Laid back, jokes a lot, definitely straight as an arrow
ATL Apollo: Sexy and straight, doting father. Fantastic husband material.
BH Mauricio: Self-infatuated scumbag, but then look what he is married to. Serial cheater.
NJ Joe Gorga: Straight but loves attention in all forms
Miami Romain: Honestly none of us really pay attention to this one. Ratings are horrid but it is Andy's pet project so it takes top priority.

Bravo insider -
But what about Albie?
|by Caroline||reply 117||06/27/2013|
Albie is very, very private. A hard one to read. The cheerleader girlfriend plus Billy Joel's daughter, Alexa was all created for the show. Albie is always so quiet and reserved.
Crittafur is classic straight Italian fat boy but is very personable and sweet.
|by Caroline||reply 118||06/27/2013|
Thanks for great info, Bravo Insider! What's the deal with Danielle? I thought she was rumored to come back this season. The show started to suck once she left.
|by Caroline||reply 119||06/27/2013|
Shut up, R120. You seem like the type of DLer who flames someone with legitimate dish, turns them off, and then bitches in another thread about how the site has gone downhill in terms of interesting gossip.

"Bravo Insider" means that the poster is obsessed with reading every single bit of info on the Bravo website.

Well, at least OC Doug and Albie can still be gay...
|by Caroline||reply 123||06/27/2013|
OC Doug is a devout Christian who met his wife at bible camp. He would never be with another man.

Excellent parody, R124!

It looks like Caroline and Kathy have turned on Melissa this year. Is that because they have learned that she really was lying about her stripper past or are they pissed because their husbands lust after that ass and those legs? Caroline's shameless flirting with Joe Gorga, while pretending to give him "sisterly" advice about his relationship with his real sister, was kind of creepy. She needs to find something to do besides meddling in other people's shit. Buying an apartment in Hoboken to be closer to her sons and pushing the friendship with Gorga also insures she gets more screen time. I agree wtih the Insider, she is not as Saintly as she would like us to believe. Her daughter always looks resentful and jealous of her brothers but in her own way she is as dysfunctional and dependent on her parents as Ashley. Giving Kathy's sister more screen time is a mistake. It is cringe worthy to watch this woman in the throes of an alcohol fueled manic episode every week. I know it is mean to talk trash about kids but Gia is insufferable. The face doesn't justify the attitude. That bratty child is in for a rude awakening.
|by Caroline||reply 126||06/27/2013|
Andy offered Danielle a ridiculously low amount of money.
|by Caroline||reply 127||06/27/2013|
Insider, What was the story on Kathy. Didn't Bravo declare that she would not be a full time housewife this year? And weren't they looking at another family member of Teresa?
And, more details on Caroline's dealings! Any gossip on if one of her sons is gay?

Real Housewives of Sing Sing?

I bet Melissa is laughing really hard right now. Though she'll be joining Teresa soon enough. I always had Sheree from RHOA as the Housewife most likely to serve time post-show.
Who will raise the children???

By the way: the name "Giudice", pronounced Gee-OOO--dee-chay, is the Italian word for Justice. Judges, in Italy are called "giudici". .. Ironic, huh??

She and her husband are going to jail. The only question is for how long...
NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Teresa Giudice, 41, and her husband Giuseppe “Joe” Giudice, 43, stars of the Real Housewives of New Jersey were indicted Monday on federal fraud charges.
They have been accused of exaggerating their income while applying for loans before their TV show debuted in 2009, then hiding their improving fortunes in a bankruptcy filing after their first season aired.
The couple, of Montville Township, were charged in a 39-count indictment with conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud, bank fraud, making false statements on loan applications and bankruptcy fraud.
They say they hope to resolve federal fraud charges as quickly as possible.
A 39-count indictment, handed up Monday in federal court in Newark, N.J., accuses the couple of bank and bankruptcy fraud. Joe Giudice is also accused of failing to file five years of tax returns, before the show began airing, when he allegedly earned nearly $1 million.
Teresa’s attorney says she will plead not guilty and that “we look forward to vindicating her.”
Giudice also issued her own statement saying “today is a most difficult day for our family.”
She says she supports her husband and is committed to continuing her career.
The show is in its fifth season on Bravo. A network spokesman had no comment.
The reality TV stars submitted fraudulent mortgage and other loan applications from 2001 through 2008, a year before their show debuted on Bravo, making phony claims about their employment status and salaries, the indictment said.
Joe Giudice also failed to file tax returns for the years 2004 through 2008, when he is alleged to have earned nearly $1 million, the government said.
Their attorneys did not immediately return calls seeking comment. A spokesman for Bravo said he had no comment.
The two were scheduled to make their initial court appearances Tuesday.
“The indictment returned today alleges the Giudices lied to the bankruptcy court, to the IRS and to a number of banks,” U.S. Attorney Paul Fishman said. “Everyone has an obligation to tell the truth when dealing with the courts, paying their taxes and applying for loans or mortgages. That’s reality.”
When Teresa filed for a mortgage loan of $121,000 in 2001, she falsely claimed she worked as an executive assistant, submitting fake W-2 forms and fake paystubs as part of the ruse, the indictment said.
In their petition for bankruptcy protection, initiated in October 2009, the couple concealed businesses they owned, rental income they received, and Teresa’s true income from the “Real Housewives,” website sales and personal appearances, the indictment said.
Prosecutors said they also hid their anticipated increase in income from the then-upcoming second year of the show, which is in its fifth season."
