Real Housewives of New Jersey Cast Blogs by RamonaCoaster with Photos by Boston
So far only two people were not too traumatized to write their cast blogs after filming the reunion – Teresa’s ghost writer and Melissa. (note from NMD – by the time this made it on the blog 4 cast blogs were posted on Bravo)
I’m glad you got to see some of my Gabriella’s personality. I told you she’s not shy with her sisters, she just doesn’t run for the cameras! She is so funny and she’s like an old soul. The things she says amaze me. I love her, like I love all my girls. I’m just happy you got to see a little more of her this week.
Gabriella seems like the sweetest and prettiest of the Giudice girls. I knew Gabriella wouldn’t be standing by the water pump with Annie Sullivan.
Since Melissa is so much younger than her sisters, my girls are the closest cousins that Antonia has. I love that little girl so much and would do anything to have her over more. We’ll keep inviting her and our door is always open. Hopefully her mama will let us have a play date soon. We’ve haven’t filmed in a year, and coincidentally, we haven’t seen Melissa and her kids in a year (except for Melissa’s solo appearance at Gia and Milania’s birthday party in January). Maybe if the cameras come back around, we’ll see “all-about-family Melissa” again too. Fingers crossed!
Snarky, snarky. I’m sure you’ll get blamed for the missing play dates too.
So I had my Fabellini launch party after the Napa trip. I didn’t invite Jacqueline, because I didn’t want her drama there.
What are you worried about? She’s literally a big schnooze at a party.
You’ll see in the next few episodes, Jacqueline was not ready to be friends with me again. She was… well, you can watch and decide for yourself.
She was zapped. Caroline activated her collar and gave her a shock when she saw her starting to be friends with her again.
She did hurt me. (I can’t believe I said “hurted” on TV! Oh my gosh! That’s what happens when I think in Italian but speak in English!)
Thinking “hurted” your head.
I have always hoped Dina and Caroline, and Caroline and her other siblings, would get along. For Caroline to say I have anything to do with her and her family’s fights is just crazy. Crazy, crazy, crazy. Dina said herself I had nothing to do with it. I don’t know why Caroline can’t just own up to her own problems, but I guess blaming me for everything helps her sleep at night.
I wonder if there’s a “Teresa” in her family. A scapegoat whom everyone blames their problems on. Could Caroline be the “Teresa” of the family? That would be so effed up and so funny.
PS: Last night on Watch What Happens Live, I high-fived Perez Hilton for losing weight naturally and not getting a lapband. I know Lauren thought it was a random dig at her, and I’m sorry for that. It came from a big conversation we all had at the reunion. You’ll have to wait and see what we said, but I didn’t mean for it to spill over. I guess I’m still a little delirious from a weekend of reunion madness…
Careful Teresa. She’s starving and could get violent.
Well, let me start by saying we filmed the reunion this past week, and boy oh boy words cannot even explain the craziness. That day is probably the hardest part of being a Housewife and being on Bravo. We got through it, and I am so glad it’s over. It was pretty emotional and very intense, but it feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
So you let Teresa have it.
Knowing what’s to come in the season finale, this episode makes me happy and sad at the same time. When I called a truce with Teresa, I meant it. I truly wanted to put all the past behind us and start with a clean slate. I wanted to forget about all the vindictive things that went on between us and move on for our children and our family. I was putting my two feet forward and giving the relationship my all. I didn’t want to go back to where we were in the past. We made a promise to move forward, and that’s exactly what I did. You will soon see that wasn’t the case for Teresa.
Singing the same old tune. Now all you need is to make your JLo style video you can play on Youtube. I guess we’ll see if Teresa was instrumental in outing you as a stripper and not Bravo production.
The play date with the cousins was so much fun. How gorgeous were Antonia, Gabriella, and Milania? They are all so precious. What a great day we had together! The girls loved it and loved being together. To be honest, Teresa is the reason we even live in Montville. Joe and I sold our house in Franklin Lakes so that we could move to a town that we would have family in and so our kids could go to school with their cousins. I grew up with so many cousins, and I wanted my children to have that bond. I wanted them to have those relatives that would support them up no matter what. That’s how it should be.
So why hasn’t Antonia seen her cousins in a year? Hhhhmmm, let me think. Could it be Teresa’s fault?
Unfortunately Jackie and Caro did write their blogs this week.
I sympathized with Kathy while Victoria was checking out her college options. I remember when we did that with Albie, the dorms were small with cinderblock walls and it was quite a shock when we first walked in. Don’t worry, Kathy! She’ll be back looking for dinner with a bag full of laundry before you know it.
And back, and back, and back. Caro would know. There’s only so much an umbilical cord can stretch. They still need their
allowance payroll money.
The scene with the little girls getting their nails done was too adorable for words; say what you want about the Jersey Housewives, you can’t deny we have the cutest little group of kids!
If it’s true that Don Caro said something about Teresa’s kids on the reunion show, she must be playing the spin doctor in this blog. She better not say anything about my girl Milania. I’d never want to meet her in person but she sure is entertaining to watch in the safety of my home.
Sirius Radio was a blast! We did a three-hour open mike special, allowing listeners to call in and talk about anything they’d like.
The Fabellini party scene was not an easy one for me to watch. It is what it is.
Not fun to watch your sister Dina shoot down your conspiracy theory that Teresa is the antichrist.
Woohoo! A short blog!
I was very disappointed by the obvious calculating and scheming ways of certain people in this episode, but it doesn’t surprise me. It’s a shame. Teresa knew exactly what she was doing by bringing Dina into that conversation about Caroline while the cameras were on them, and Dina had to know what she was getting into as well. That’s all I will say on that.
How dare they not stick to the storyline Caro writes for them!
As far as the Fabellini party goes, I didn’t expect to be invited.
You’d probably be at home hammered anyway.
It was what it was, and I was just very frustrated at that point in time with the person Teresa had become. I knew at that point that her make-up with me was not sincere, and I had been waiting for her true feelings to come out on camera.
Let’s stick to the true timeline please, not the Bravo fake one. Your make-up with Teresa on the camping trip was over by the Fabellini party. Probably blew up during the Posche fashion show which happened Tuesday, September 27. Third Season Reunion was Wednesday, September 28, 2011 which Jackie missed. Fabellini launch party was October 7, 2011. Lynn had the Posche fashion show scoop a year ago. Thanks, Lynn! We miss you!

The Jersey girls went up in flames yesterday since I showed you Jacqueline’s tweets yesterday, so much more has become public. The Real Housewives of New Jersey filmed their reunion without Jacqueline Laurita on Wednesday. This is the first time in Bravo Housewives history that a Housewife was missing from a reunion filming but I can’t say that I blame her.
Best we can tell there was a battle over at the Posche Fashion Show (not again!) that filmed last night and Jacqueline claims that someone got “set up” and we know that Teresa and her neon pink dress were involved.
Somehow during all the Twitter drama, Melissa Gorga was accused of being a stripper. Once the ladies were released from Reunion Purgatory, Twitter went all bat shit crazy, here’s what Teresa Giudice had to say:
On my way home… Loooong day. Wow has Twitter gone crazy.
Wow have some people gone crazy… #sadforthem.
Let’s get this straight: I LOVE my WHOLE family. Would never do anything to hurt them. xx.
THIS is exactly why I didn’t want my family on the show–people come out of nowhere to try & hurt you. I don’t want my family hurt. Ever.
Breaks my heart that anyone would believe I would be part of something to hurt my family. Fame can mess with your mind. Family is forever.xx.
And for the record: I don’t believe MG was a stripper but I wouldn’t care anyway. (I have lots of ex-stripper friends… ahem…).
She’s the mother of my niece & nephews & part of my family. You’ll see how I defend her in S4. xx #lovemybrother #lovemyfamily
Please make note of Teresa’s comment in particular the “ahem”: I have lots of ex-stripper friends… ahem.. Keep in mind that Teresa doesn’t have many friends at all!
Now read Jacqueline’s latest: Note the “ahem”.
@JacLaurita: I love the blame shifting when someone is caught in lies. Unbelievable. There is no real love there. Things aren’t always what they seem. SOME people live a different life OFF camera then they do on. ( ahem) You’ll all see through the bullshit if you look closely enough. I think you all are pretty smart
The ladies are “ahem” ing to each other, Jacqueline didn’t stop there:
@JacLaurita I love the blame shifting when someone is caught in lies. Unbelievable.
@JacLaurita Ok,I’m pulling back.I’m not going there.I was impulsive.It’s behind & beneath me.Too Unimportant.My life is good now.
@JacLaurita Come on! You should know me better than that by now. There is OBVIOUSLY a lot more to it.Things were done to me personally too.
@JacLaurita I’d like to only focus on positive things now please.I threw the trash out.I’m cleaning now and reorganizing.Starting fresh and new.
I was on to what was going on last night…I wasn’t about to get set up again! That’s over. It’s now my ballpark and my game!
I love it. U go Jacqueline! It’s about time you woke up!! Teresa is a jealous vindictive B…..
Oh I meant Monica. She would never ever subject herself to that ever ever again!
I told you Teresa was no good!! She has zero morals and a forehead that she shaves! Confirmed through a very good source.
There were rumors that Bravo invited Monica to the Posche Fashion show to antagonize Teresa and that Danielle was brought in to confront Melissa about her communication with Danielle during Season Two. Kim cleared up both of those rumors, Monica and Danielle both stayed home.
It seems as though Melissa Gorga was involved in the Teresa drama, no surprise there, she and Teresa have been at each other’s throats and stabbing behind each other’s backs for months while smiling and chanting that it’s all about family in their talking head interviews yet doing nothing to promote the health of the family dynamic. Teresa seems to have a bathroom fetish when it comes to these Posche Fashion shows. Last season she waited outside the bathroom to start a ruckus with Danielle Staub, this season she has apparentlystarted drama in the bathroom where Bravo’s camera’s cannot go.
Here are Tweets from Martha Byrne of As The World Turns who was a guest at the Posche Fashion Show
Getting hair done for Posche Fashion Show.

Hot mess in NJ
Teresa and the gang didn’t disappoint
Joey Gorga had a few things to say too:
Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes never stays too far away from the drama even though she’s across the country, here are some of her Tweets:
@Teresa_Giudice You make me sick. WOW.
@AshleeHolmes: some people are sooooo sad with their own lives that they feel the need to cause drama in other peoples lives to make themselves feel better
@JacLaurita i love you sooooooo much mama ❤ i can’t wait to see you!!!! eeeek !!!!! come sooner!!!
@AshleeHolmes: UGH..i’m sorry..i’m done now..some people just make me so angry..i don’t put up with fake people &their petty bullshit…
I spoke with a Bravo insider this morning and got all the details, look for the whole ugly story on RumorFix sometime this afternoon. Lynn~
Housewife News by NoMoreDrama
Blogger AllAboutTruth has the inside scoop on S4 RHONJ Reunion Antics. It looks like things are still really bad between the ladies – and it was a 4 on 1 fight with no happy ending. Read about it here:
More on the reunion here: http://www.bravotv.com/blogs/the-dish/exclusive-inside-the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-reunion
Joey Gorga claims that Teresa calling Melissa a stripper was the last straw for him, and he hasn’t spoken to her in a year. Read about it here:
Melissa’s alleged ex-boss speaks out in Teresa’s defense – saying she wasn’t part of the set up we’ll see tomorrow on the show. “Angelo insists that Teresa Giudice actually defended Melissa. Angelo said, “I don’t want to say too much, but she was very defensive of Melissa and said, ‘Listen, don’t talk about my family like that.’ She didn’t like the fact that I mentioned that Melissa and I worked together. I apologized to her repeatedly and told her that I had no idea she didn’t know.”
Caroline Manzo’s sons, Albie and Chris, are planning on opening a restaurant in Hoboken, N.J. Chris should have lots of experience since he worked at the Brownstone. Let’s hope they know what they are doing, because it could be a money sink.
Andy Cohen says his day was made better when he ran into Bethenny. We all know he likes Bethenny the best.
Divorce rumors for Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy began to swirl this week when Bethenny tweeted that she needed a break. She’s clarified that she wasn’t taking a break from Jason – just a break from her busy schedule.
Did Carole Radziwill really date George Clooney for a year? The answer so far is no. It was just a comment on camera that was meaningless. Unless Clooney is covering. http://www.wetpaint.com/real-housewives-of-new-york/articles/did-carole-radziwill-really-date-george-clooney-new-report-says-no
Heather Thomson made the “Call the Fashion Police list with this outfit:
Former Real Housewives of Atlanta housewife Lisa Wu has been working on film projects since she was cut from the show. Her latest one is “Must be the Music”. Go here to read an interview with Lisa.
NeNe Leakes has announced that she’s single and ready to mingle. I thought she was divorced months ago and was “dating” on the show – so I’m a little surprised by this announcement. Press maybe?
Gretchen Rossi shoots down engagement rumors, and the rumor started by Tom Morro that Slade calls Joe Giudice a “douche bag”.
Real Housewives of New Jersey continues to have strong ratings, with over 6 million people tuning in for the last 2 episodes. New York’s trip to St. Barths gave them a temporary rating boost – but part 3 had the lowest rating of the three-part series – with 1.8 million viewers. Miami rating are more surprising. Miami wasn’t supposed to be a housewives type show – it was supposed to be a group of women hosting dinner parties. It was recut and thrown into the schedule when NY wasn’t ready to go. It debuted this year to 1,066,000 million viewers – down quite a bit from the 1.2 million the premier drew in last year without any advance advertising. Perhaps running three cities at once isn’t a good idea. It’s hard to get into all of them at once.
