Bring Danielle Staub Back to RHONJ Movement / RHONJ Cast Blogs – Blogged / Andy Cohen denies Producer Scandal / Housewives News / Inspirational Post

As many of you know, I’m new to the twitter world.  And in the twitter world I discovered that someone had started a twitter account with the sole purpose of bringing Danielle Staub back to the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  I found that intriguing – so I began to follow the account, and asked them to follow me.  And then I asked them to write us a blog post on why we should support bringing Danielle Staub back to the show. So here it is. NMD

“Bring Danielle Back” to The Real Housewives of New Jersey

by @bringdback

Let’s face the “reality” facts. Since the departure of Danielle Staub, the show has steadily gone down the tubes. As a fan of Danielle Staub and The Real Housewives, I have launched the twitter account or you can call it a movement, to @bringdback #bringdanielleback.

“Love me or hate me, there’s no in between with me.” Not only does it sum up Danielle, but it’s safe to say her fan base follows a similar beat. Without Danielle, fans of RHONJ have been left with a mere shell of a show that continues to fall flat and at times is downright uneventful.

So why does Bravo continue to use Danielle on the show, even though she is gone? Is it a ploy to keep viewers or are they making us think she’s coming back just to save the ratings? As fans, we can only hope it’s something different. The hope is that a new contract offer is in the works to bring Danielle back.

It makes perfect sense. Keep in mind that viewers want to know more about the e-mails between Melissa Gorga and Danielle. And why did Melissa contact Danielle? Maybe Melissa needed support during her own epic battles with Teresa? Or Maybe Melissa was manipulating both Danielle and Teresa?

Viewers will never know this and many other juicy secrets unless Bravo “Brings Danielle Back.” Fans need her to return more than ever, especially now that the tides have turned on Teresa Giudice during this current season. Lets all admit, Danielle endured the most bullying, attacks and character assassinations from her co-stars and so many past truths are now being shown.

So I guess Caroline Manzo has always been the “puppeteer” pulling the strings, operator of Mr. Toads Wild Ride” What about Jacqueline; poor, poor Jacqueline. That’s all I have to say for her.

Finally, there’s Ms. Dina Manzo; the housewife that started the whole mess with Danielle. Here’s a “slow clap” for you. And for the love of God, enough with the freakin’ Kims. Puuuhlease!

It’s time to wake up from this snooze fest and realize that Danielle is desperately needed back to breathe life into The Housewives of New Jersey. It’s time to put differences aside. Fans of the show need a housewife they can cheer for, on many levels.

Bravo, enough with the flashback scenes. Her triumphant return will most certainly prove to be a “win-win.” Your ratings will jump and fans of the show will jump for joy in celebration of the return of the most epic housewife.  So make your voices heard!~~   @bringdback

Thank you @bringdback.  I’m intrigued by the idea of having her return to the show.  What does everyone else think?  Poll below if you don’t feel like commenting.  NMD


Real Housewives of New Jersey Cast Blogs by RamonaCoaster

Kathy Wakile

Ok so in summary Kathy congratulates the Manzo boys for opening their new restaurant. No bitterness about good ol’ Al discouraging them from opening their own restaurant but I don’t think Kathy had that in mind anyway. Then she goes into a whole spiel how she got on a journey to selling her baked goods line.

my Dolci della Dea – Goddess Sweets will launch very soon on QVC with my introductory product The Cannoli Kit. Now you too can be the Goddess of Sweets for your family and friends in your own kitchen.

That sounds so corny.  I’d rather buy my cannolis from a bakery.

All of this now brings me to the fashion show. When I agreed to go I made a conscious decision to stay out of any drama.

Bravo production didn’t fill you in on the set-up so you sat there.

When we arrived, I have to be honest, I was a bit put off and upset to see the number of men that were in attendance.

Please don’t say it changes the dynamic. I’ve been hearing that ad nauseam.

I still can’t figure out why this creep thought it would be of any interest to Teresa and Kim that he claimed to know Melissa. I must admit to being naïve. I had no idea of the manipulation that was about to unfold.

Innocent and doe-eyed Kathy.  Now that she’s trying to sell some baked goods she has to keep as far away from the trashy kerfuffle. How about not being on a reality show.

When he walked over to the table I thought it seemed very strange and contrived that he kept going on and on about how he knew Melissa. What was even more bizarre was the fact that Teresa didn’t call security to get rid of this loser. What was he doing there? She had to have known what his intentions were, since she met him earlier in the day while getting her hair and makeup done. After viewing that scene it’s pretty clear to everyone that he wasn’t there to pass out party favors.

Why? And what? And why didn’t she do that? And what was he doing? I see what you’re doing – making an accusation while not making an accusation.

What happens next is just a mess, and I don’t even want to play it over in my brain any longer. Till this day I keep thinking about it and wondering if there was any way this could have been avoided. Could someone have stopped the impending disaster from occurring?

See you next week when unfortunately things get even uglier.

The end of reality tv is the impending disaster you see.  It’s clear Baldy was mic’d and was there to set up someone per the script.  No point in watching reality tv when it’s scripted.  I can see now why someone on the production staff was fired. This reality show’s credibility is compromised.

Teresa Giudice

To all my Jewish friends, L’Shanah Tovah!

Nice touch.

I see our visit made headlines again, and for such a ridiculous reason! Joe was playing with a little boy’s toy gun and I told him, “Put it down before someone takes a picture of you with it! I can just imagine that headline!” Surprise, surprise, that was exactly the headline, that Joe “pointed a gun” at me.

Just in case, take his name off the life insurance policy.

My heart was racing all over again watching this week’s episode. I think you can see I was sincerely uncomfortable at this strange guy trying to talk to me about Melissa’s past. (We all know I’m no actress — that’s actually what finally got me fired from Celebrity Apprentice!) It was very weird because the guy Angelo didn’t really do anything terrible, he wasn’t rude or aggressive, so I couldn’t really say anything more than I did. I think he really did think I knew about her past — which I didn’t, I still don’t, and I, like the rest of America, don’t care! — and when he saw I was upset, he apologized right away. But I didn’t want anything to do with anyone talking about my family, so I left (and I was downstairs, not just around the corner! I couldn’t hear Angelo and Kim D. at all!). I even told Kim D. to shut the f— up! (Sorry, Kim.)

I don’t get it. What are you apologizing to Kim for? Wasn’t she in on  it?  If Kim is going to be on RHONJ next season, I guess it helps to have an ally.

The whole situation just felt weird, so I took myself out of it. I can’t keep track of all the people Melissa has pissed off in our town, but I am not going to be a part of it.

How does one piss off people in their community? By requesting services and not paying for them? Go to small claims court.

You did see my honest reaction to everything and I’m proud of how I handled it. I think I’ve learned a lot over the past few years — thanks in part to Posche Fashion shows! — and I kept it together, but rose above it. I’m so thankful I don’t have to defend myself and work as hard as the other ladies do to try and convince the viewers of what “really” happened. You’re all smart, you can see for yourself.

At least you never told us to “read between the lines.”

The one thing that does still sadden and confuse me is why my cast members, especially my own family, were back then and still are so ready to believe I would “set Melissa up.” First of all, I don’t play like that. For better or worse, what you see with me is what you get. I don’t scheme and plot and try and twist people’s minds and opinions about things.

Usually people with short tempers don’t have the foresight to be sneaky.

I wish the other ‘Wives would spend half as much time taking care of their kids as they do getting into fights on Twitter. We’d all be so much better off, don’t you think?

This means you Jacqueline!

Second, I have nothing to gain from exposing Melissa. She is my parent’s only daughter-in-law, she goes by our family name “Gorga.” Why would I want anything bad out there about a Gorga? She’s my only brother’s wife, the mother of my godson, and my daughter’s godmother. She may not have any family loyalty toward me, but I have it toward her and I always will.

Save it post-divorce.

I’m just so over all of this backwards, made-up drama.  

We are too. Time to go back to scripted drama. Revenge on ABC is pretty good.

When I found out — by Danielle outing Melissa on WWHL, not by Melissa owning and admitting it — I forgave her. I truly don’t believe she would forgive me for something that evil, but I did forgive her. I didn’t wait for a year to see how I would look on TV to forgive her. I did it right away. Yes, I wanted my family to be whole that bad!

So why keep bringing it up? Doesn’t sound like you’re over it.

The only thing that made any of this a big deal is the fact that Melissa freaked out, ran into the bathroom, and right away called my brother and said she’d been “set up.” What? You’ll see my face next week when everyone immediately jumps on the “Melissa was set up” train. I’m so confused. First, because I don’t think the big incident was really that big a deal. I didn’t like to hear it or be put in the middle of it in a creepy, unexpected way, but it was no ambush. (And I think I know ambush!) The guy said, “Hi, remember me?” and LEFT.

Thanks. Now that I know what happens, I don’t have to watch this fallacy of a show.

But conveniently the other Housewives, the ones with the matching blogs every week, came to the same exact conclusion right away: Teresa set Melissa up! What, what, and what? And again: what? It doesn’t make sense for me to do, they had absolutely no proof, the guy himself denied I had anything to do with it, but the truth doesn’t matter to them.

As long as you’re their whipping post, they have something to keep the cold hearts warm at night.

But the worst part is my brother, who wasn’t there, doesn’t see it. He believed their crazy story right away, still believes it I guess, and we haven’t spoken for a year. In the end, who got what they wanted? Not me…

At least your husband doesn’t have to worry about his brother-in-law borrowing tools. He already is a tool.

Caroline Manzo

Hello again! Sorry for the late blog two weeks in a row, I’m really slacking!

Now we know where your kids get it from.

I was happy to see Kathy follow her passion for baking and bring it to a new level. She’s super talented, and I wish her nothing but success in her new endeavor. Just remember Kathy, the Manzos are willing to taste test at any time!

Caroline would be happy to sabotage Lauren’s diet.

I am thrilled for Lauren; Cafface is absolutely gorgeous and she is doing a phenomenal job, but more importantly, she’s happy.

Thin=happy Are you going to put that piece of advice in your book?

Ashlee is doing very well in California. Yes, she’s had some growing pains and has made her fair share of mistakes, but she was back home a few weeks ago and she has made some very positive changes. She’s growing up and taking responsibility for herself. We all knew she had it in her; maybe the California sunshine had to bring it out?

Glad she left the bad influences back in New Jersey.  I’m referring to you, Big Red Clown.

The Posche fashion show is proving itself to be a memorable event year after year, wouldn’t you agree? Are we gluttons for punishment or suckers for fashion, that’s the million dollar question.

I think the million dollar question is – do you like holding the whip?

Melissa Gorga

There is going to be a lot of information thrown at you in the season finale, but first let me just say for the record, I was never a “stripper or a call girl or a whore or a lesbian or a drug user” as my sister-in-law likes put out there for everyone. If I was a stripper, I would say I was. I have nothing against them, and I am definitely way too smart to deny it. I would have to be a fool to think I could get away with stripping and go on a reality TV show and no one would ever find out. Come on, you have to give me more credit than that.

I remember when you joked with Teresa in the RV about making a sex tape to get your career started.  I don’t think you’re going to jumpstart your pseudo-singing career with this stunt.

Now on to the Sunday’s episode. I wish I could have been a fly on the wall when those two “masterminds” were putting this together. Are we really supposed to believe that this is just all one big coincidence?

Well, it’s how production planned it.  You got the script.

First, I find it hard to believe that Teresa just so happened to go to a random hair salon to get her hair and makeup done before going to the Posche Fashion Show. We all see her get her hair done at home each week, and trust me, she does not like to try out new people when she knows she will be filmed and photographed.

Bravo is sending her a paycheck so she has to be there when they tell her to.

Second, the salon has a creepy PR manager that greets them and hands out champagne to their “housewife customers” and just so happened to work as a manager at a gentleman’s club. Interesting career move. I wonder how one goes from gentleman’s club manager to a public relations professional? I guess he wasn’t that good at his job, because the salon is now closed.

Oh snap! Bitter much?

What I love most about this scene is Teresa looks like she has stood in front of a mirror and practiced what face she was going to make for the last two weeks. For a second she actually looks confused, I think she forgot which face she was going to use, then in typical Teresa ah ha fashion she remembered and went with it. Pretty good, pretty good.

Teresa should just get a SAG card and screw reality tv.

But your family knows you all too well, sister. Then it cuts to a one-on-one of Teresa saying, “I heard rumors that Melissa was a dancer and now this just confirms it.” Way to give me the benefit of the doubt. Looks like she is just going with this one. This is all just so convenient now isn’t it?

No one really cares if you were a dancer or not.  People really want to know how this affects Teresa and her relationship with her family and fake friends. Teresa, Teresa, Teresa.  Sorry Melissa, you’re just playing second fiddle to your sister-in-law.

Back to the salon, Kim looks like a pig in sh– and Teresa takes the chance to say, “Please don’t ever talk about my family.” I guess only she and her husband can call me a gold-digging, raccoon-faced, lip-synching, fame whore, leave-my-husband-for-a-richer-man kind of girl. But not the creepy, fake PR guy. OH NO!

Well, if you can’t hear it from family, who can you hear it from?


Andy Cohen Denies the New Jersey Producer Scandal

Valley Val discovered that Andy Cohen, the man behind the housewives shows at Bravo, is denying the producer manipulation that is rumored to have gone on at the Posche fashion show last year.  Famewhorgas blog is reporting that they have insider knowledge that it was fired producer Cat Rodriguez that was texting show star Jacqueline Laurita as the fashion show unfolded.  Rodriguez allegedly told Laurita that co-star Teresa Guidice was responsible for a former co-worker of Melissa Gorga talking to Melissa at the fashion show.  The funny thing is  – all the co-worker said to Melissa was hi.  Scandalous.  Perhaps that wasn’t enough drama for the season finale so Rodriguez had to amp it up by feeding information to emotionally fragile Laurita.  Famewhorgas blog is also reporting that the producer – Cat Rodriguez – was let go by the production company for conflict of interest after the fashion show.

Andy Cohen addressed charges by tweeting this:

Judging from comments on this blog, people no longer care.  That’s right Bravo – you’ve jumped the shark with this one.


Housewife News by NMD

Jacqueline Laurita was the speaker at an Autism Speaks event yesterday.  Tom Morro,  who used to be Kim G’s PR person, covered the event for Fox Morning Extra according to Reality Tea.  Tom reported that the event was held at the Brownstone and attended by Laurita’s co-star Caroline Manzo, husband Al, and kids Chris, Albie and Lauren), especially since the event was held at the Brownstone.  Tom mentioned that there was: “no sign of the other New Jersey cast – Teresa, the Gorgas or Wakiles.”  Adding that “Caroline was sweet”.  Tom shared, “Jax admitted she was quite nervous, more specifically- ”scared shit” about giving a speech in front of the crowd, she said it’s very different from being in front of camera,” but that she did a great job with a heartfelt speech.

Teresa Giudicewill be in PARAMUS, NJ, at the LORD & TAYLOR HOME STORE today for an appearance.  She tweeted this morning “I will see you today!!! 1-3pm”.  That’s local time – not west coast blog time.  Update:  Teresa is at a soccer game this morning.  When she tweeted the news out, Andy Cohen replied back@Teresa_Giudice where’s MILANIA???!!!”  Perhaps Andy was just being nice, but maybe he’s trying to “make nice” with Teresa, since it’s clear she’s got a large amount of fan support.

And Melissa reminds us to take some time out of our busy day and workout. (Thanks Boston).

    Morning All… I just dont see Bravo bringing danielle back to the show…she ( allegedly ) proved to be a liability and I just dont see dandyandy allowing it..She needs to just go on with her life and leave that chapter behind her…JMHO


    • Good Morning. The only part that makes me think it might happen is he mentioned her several times last year on WWHL. Perhaps their idea of liability has shifted; after all they did bring back Taylor Armstrong.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I hope she gets paid every time they mention her.

      • Thedesigndiva says:

        NMD… true…BUT… how convoluted would that be to bring her back to be what ?? friend of HW Tre ??? Bravo needs to start shutting down these HWS shows down…They are profiting from the destruction of the family unit and the women who participate are just as liable as Bravo… It’s really sad …and for what ??


        • There are so many shows out there (in addition to hws) that exploit families – like that HoneyBooBoo thing – even some of the crazy wedding ones and things like that. It seems to have sprung off the Jerry Springer type talk show platform, where people are willing to do anything/say anything to get a fleeting moment of fame. I wish the HWs shows could go back to the glitz and glam and less of the hair pulling / screaming at each other.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          They are willing participants because it’s easy money.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            I do not think the money is that easy. We all seem to want to count money. I think Andy and the wives are Attention Whores of the Third Kind. Most can not tell the truth to save a life. I do not think Danielle would be back because the reason she was removed is because she likes to litigate a drive threw order. She talked about how many cases and bills concerning lawsuits on one of the reunions. No one wants someone around that is sue happy/proud. I think if Andy decided to hire her back that NBC would step in and say WTH! I could see a guest arc to explain and tie up some loose ends, but no more. She needs to move on. Talk about bad for the image of women and the free walking insane. I have always found Danielle to be a very creepy character, that loved to bask, in her own self perpetuated victimhood. It is impossible, in this day and age, not to see her need, to throw herself up against every wall, before passing, and then blame it on her past or someone else, completely removing herself from any adult responsibility. And she seems to be an evil bitch! JMHO.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I respect your opinion, CAP. But I do think that it’s relatively easy money compared to what regular folk have to do to put food on the table.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                A lot of people are not working. So my point is that as a job, selling you soul to the devil, it is not easy money, regardless of the amount. I think some housewives are over paid and some are under paid. There does not seem to be a reasonable reason why some get more then others but I think it is another way to create conflict between cast members. Also compared to other performers on TV reality stars do not make that much money. Prime time stars can make the same amount as a reality star makes in a season, for one episode. To me they are regular people with a bit of luck, bad or good. I will not compare them very often to real people because the camera distorts how we each perceive them. I will not compare the position of being on TV with the 9 to 5 job because I have never been on TV, but relatively speaking, for TV work, most of the housewives do not make that much money. IMO.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  They make more than I do and I have a comparable amount of talent as the reality stars especially the ones from NJ,and again that’s nothing to brag about. I sing almost as well as Melissa, I cook almost as well as Tre, I bake almost as well as Kathy, I drink almost as well as Jac, I am almost as bitter as Caroline. I wouldn’t mind making that kind of money for being less than spectacular. I don’t however, have as much talent as a prime time star, so I don’t believe I could compare what they make with what I make (or don’t make). For the amount of talent they possess (the NJ reality stars), I maintain that it’s easy money. JMHO

                  • amalfi says:

                    LOL, Lainey!

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    We do not agree because you keep comparing them to you. I will not do that. Just because people make more money then you do, does not make them or their circumstance better then yours or mine. Yes they have more money and exposure then I do, but their is a lot that money can’t buy. Like peace of mind or integrity. Not all network stars are exceptional talented, some are just very well connected. I refuse to give away too much power to fantasy star making procedures. Talent does not seem to be a key to wealth and prosperity and more. False idols are presented to us everyday in the media and we take them at face value more often then not. It is better sometimes to question why someone is a star then to just accept their position. JMHO. Lainey.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      I think it’s ok for me to compare them to me. I don’t think it’s a bad or inferior way of thinking or reasoning. The question often comes up, why do these people subject themselves and their families to this? And I maintain that it’s because of the lure/allure of easy money. It’s my perspective, simplistic as it may seem, and it’s all I’ve got. Also, I don’t think we disagree as much as you think we do. You disagree with my comment and opinion that it is easy money. I disagree with your opinion and comment that it’s NOT easy money. But I agree with most of everything else you say. In fact the list of things LaineyLainey agrees with CAP on is way too long to try to elaborate. I also wonder if you suffer from the same affliction as I. The need to have the last word. Guilty.

                    • disgrazia4 says:

                      I’m with you on this CAP.

    • mrs. peabody says:

      I agree with you, her time on the show is over.

  2. Iowagirl says:

    I think danielle could shed some light to the Tre/Mel issue. I bet she knows a lot of dirt.

    • MamaZ says:

      I would like to hear what she has to say also. But I don’t really believe her any more than the rest of the NJ cast.

    • disgrazia4 says:

      I think she could and she should shed light on this situation. Viewers wnt to know and have a right to know, Bravo storyline editing be damned.

      @bringdback, thank you for your argument defending Danielle coming back on the show. I can’t imagine her coming back as a HW. First of all, no Manzo or Laurita would film with her. Bravo Andy would have to get the support of the Red Queen or be assured that she was not coming back, or fire her. His love for her and her family appears great so I don’t know how he would be able to make that happen. Their are rumors (and in all likelihood that is all they are), that Dina is being wooed back. I believe it would be impossible to entice her with a promise that D would be on as well.

      I admit that I didn’t care for D on the show. I found her to be drama ridden generally, energy sapping, as those types often are, and very possibly unstable, forget that, admittedly unstable. That said, I don’t feel animosity toward her, in fact I wish her peace of mind, for herself and her daughters. I’m sure she could use the money and I even think she would shed some badly needed light on the shark jumped franchise, even if she offers only her own distorted or self promoting view. I’m not saying she would do that but it is a possibility. Even so, I would be willing to analyse what was said, or not said, in order to get some satisfaction finally on this whole mess. I did hear that Teresa would be willing to film with her. I think she should appear on the show and film with Teresa and Melissa and let us sort out the talk. But she prolly won’t get on is what I’m thinking. It would likely reveal Bravo’s hand even more and, judging by Andy’ twitter responses, he has his own charade to keep up. IF D can’t get on the show then let her get a paid interview that extensively examines the NJ saga. I would pay for that.

  3. LA Debra says:

    RHONJ jumped the shark for me when everything got hateful. I can appreciate drama, but not hate. I would love to see a completely new cast of housewives, and get rid of the scripts.

    • I’m not sure how they can fix this mess. I’m sensing a lot of disgust at the network right now.

      • Thank you, NMD for the blog, and I agree that there is disgust at the network. Wonder how long they, NBC, are going to support, give money, to Bravo for such unappetizing hate. After a while, it leaves one cold and bored.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I think the best way too fix NJ is to not film for a season. Let the dust settle. Let the non productive see how it feels to not have the paycheck. Start up again with a whole new production crew and a few new cast members and give the show one more try. The OC spider trap is running on one wheel and has been for at least 3 years. Bravo seems to be very slow to change or fix glaring problems. IMO.

        • Rebecca says:

          I think they support it to a degree. They knew Teresa was going to be crucified and gave her a shot at Celebrity Apprentice as a trade-off.

  4. VV says:

    Many have seen this. Is good to refresh the memory.

  5. VV says:

    OMG!!! Thanks NMD for the mention 😀 !!! That’s why I’m calling him Pinocchio Cohen.

  6. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I may not be around. My uncle died and today is the funeral. You all have a great day.

  7. VV says:

    Ramonacoaster, glad you saw how passive/agressive What’s her Name is. You are right. The rest of the cast is so knee deep into blaming Teresa bandwagon that none of them has the morals and humility to admit they were wrong.

    As for tomorrow, after being told for a year to “read between the lines” now all of the sudden we are supposed to trust Bravo Close Caption and Voice Over. I don’t believe shit of what they’ll show tomorrow. We know Teresa will be blame and the editing will be geared towards that. I’m not worry because many viewers are smart enough to pick the entire episode apart and show the inconsistencies. Sorry Bravo, the cat is out if the bag.

    • I’m hoping Donna read their lips and we can have our own interpretation.

      • disgrazia4 says:

        I hear you NMD. I have asked her for a full report and am sending my energy to her sometimes faulty TV recorders in hopes that they don’t fail her Sunday evening.

    • MamaZ says:

      Kathy thinks it’s bizarre that Teresa didn’t call security? She may want to look up the definition of the word bizarre. Since it means unconventional it would actually have been bizarre if Teresa had called security to evict someone from an event she wasn’t hosting!

      • disgrazia4 says:

        What’s her name is the bizarre one, IMO.

      • mrs. peabody says:

        really, since when does a guest call security when one guest asks another guest if they remember them. Melissa’s face told me she did and knew right away her past was in her present. Another thing that tells me they all knew something was suppose to happen is that her husband was next door waiting for his call.

      • Rebecca says:

        Why didn’t she call security herself?

  8. Donna says:

    I’m going to try and follow this to the bitter end. After that, I am done, done, done with Bravo HW shows. This Gemini can be stubborn, stubborn, stubborn.

    • VV says:

      Why will fired producer tweet what appears to be “I miss you Teresa”. I’m basing this on Teresa’s reply. Also, the fired kitty changed her Twitter pic to one of herself posing in front of the step and repeat for a Fabellini party.

      Is this a way for Teresa to show us what a hypocrite the producer is? After all, her tweets are protected. I don’t think Teresa is that smart though…

      • MamaZ says:

        It’s possible that Andy is telling the truth and there is no scandal. We don’t know who is writing the Famewhorgas blog or where they get their info.

        • VV says:

          Oh no, Andy lies. Most recently asking Jac about the Fabellini party knowing full well the party was after the Posche debacle. If Andy admits to fake timelines and manipulations or script then there goes his golden egg – the Hosewives shows – He has no choice but to deny deny deny…until the whole thing fades away or until he figures something out.

          • djloopsfruit says:

            thats not a lie thats someone who producers several shows not keeping up with every detail and it would be very easy to confuse which event happened first
            he has much more to do at work then us just watching the shows
            plus there is NO real record of anyone that produced the show being fired so how can there be a scandal

            • disgrazia4 says:

              I’m not so sure about that. Over at imbd, if you look up RHWONJ, there is no longer a credit for Cat on any episode for any year. Nor is there any story producer listed for this season after the second episode, IIRC. What’s up with that? Andy may not be aw are of every detail for one of his highest rated franchises but I find the idea that he’s not up to speed on this major uproar too unbelievable to really consider.

              • MamaZ says:

                People do leave jobs though. She may have gotten a better offer. I’m not really taking stance here on whether or not Andy is lying I’m just saying I am cautious about believing anonymous sources.

            • VV says:

              I’m sure Andy got invitations to both events and I’m sure when Posche happened he was fully informed. Did he have a memory lapse? Not sure…very convenient for him to forget. He is the executive producer and after all, Bravo is a small community. He is the master puppeteer of these shows. Make no mistake.

              • mkvalle says:

                Andy is a busy guy, he produces all those shows and has his own show that’s on five nights a week. You seriously think he would be invited to or even think of attending a Porsche event? He also does not get involved in Twitter wars. He advises the housewives to not read the crap on social media because anyone can write anything, regardless of the truth.
                Sometimes this blog makes me crazy, I know we’re here to express our opinions but I think sometimes the opinions are just as dramatic and unreal
                as the show are. I’m not picking on you VV, I just chose to respond after your post. Take the shows for what they are, entertainment, and stop the conspiracy theories! Okay, you can all beat me up now.

                • VV says:

                  Any did get invited. Both Kim D said so and Teresa said so. These are facts. However, I disagree with you on something as juicy as what happened at the Posche show. I’m sure he found out the next day. The HWs are his employees. He was told.
                  You see it one way. I see it another. Don’t worry be happy…

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    VV Andy talked abut it the next day because they filmed reunion 3. It has stated in the past that he helps edit the final footage, so he is aware of hidden time lines. It is not a conspiracy. This man prides himself on being the warlock behind the curtain. I am not sure these shows are performance art if the plot for reality is all smoke and mirrors. Andy Cohen is the last man that I would want to protect, in the entertainment industry. I think he deals in anti woman propaganda and he make it no secret by the products he releases to the viewer, season after season. IMO.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          MamaZ, his lips are moving so not likely. I think the only time that Andy would be compelled to tell the truth would be if it hurt someone really bad. He would still find a way to get someone else to tell the story, because he is a coward! IMO.

      • VV – I can’t even see that tweet on T’s timeline.

    • chismosa says:

      can you tell for sure the message that was sent to Teresa originally—? Sorry i am not a tweeeeeeter.

      • VV says:

        I can’t because the fired producer tweets are private. We can see she tweeted Teresa because Teresa “replied” to her tweet.
        I hope that makes sense :-/

    NMD, check your email.

  11. Blog Updated with Teresa, Caroline, and Melissa cast blogs. Thx RamonaCoaster!

  12. MamaZ says:

    I would like to see Danielle and Dina both come to the reunion. It would be interesting to get their input as to waht happened behind the scenes. But I don’t want to see either of them back on the show. Danielle is BSC and I don’t think the show is a good place for her. I wouldn’t mind Dina being on if Caroline was gone but I’ve had enough of the family take down storyline.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Dina and Danielle could be friends of the housewives to further the stories of who set up who and when. But if this means all of them come back then no way!

    • klmh says:

      So true. To see how the families are being affected, not only the adults but their children and parents, is horrifying to me.

  13. djloopsfruit says:

    one of the reasons you dont see me on here as oftten is so many of the people on twitter going crazy and i mean Kelly like crazy
    comparing Aviva to Kelly
    Going on and on about a producer who WASNT fired Bravo is against Tre (despite that shes been on wwhl more times then any of her cast mates)
    the list goes on and on
    i dont understand why anyone needs to see or hear from Dani on the reunion other then the continued Caroline witch hunt
    and the continuation of turning Tre into a saint
    no one here ever mentioned her anger managment problems but werte so quick to point out Nene’s
    but the worst is just how quickly almost everyone has turned on Aviva over one episode of the show when others have done far worse over the years
    Anyone else recall Sonja throwing Alex out of her house ove that b/s over marriage equality i love Sonja but she was a drunken mess on this st barts trip and Ramona was really obnoxious and passive agressive and we all know that LuMann was calling Aviva and telling her of the shenanigans and the sec Aviva arrived somehow off cam Countless LuMann told her that the other women didnt want Reid there
    i would have flipped out too it was for two freaking days and these Lady’s couldnt handle that ??? i hope they retool NY again and just keep the new women esp Aviva

    • not THAT Jill says:

      DJ-I gotta disagree with you on the Aviva thing-it wasnt one episode-it was 3..4 if you count her blog about St. Barths before she even got there and 5 if she keeps going this week.
      Sonja was horrid to Alex when she tossed her out but she knew what to do after. Aviva is beating this dead horse with all shes got. She is full of “I’m sorry I’m not sorry”.
      Sonja and Ramona were on vacation and behaved as such-they are GROWN women who like to party-so what? They did nothing to Aviva to warrant the brow beating they received. They didn’t want Reid there- it was a girls trip. They were not rude to him. Sure they spoke behind his back about kicking him out but they all talk behind backs. Aviva went to St. Baths with an attitude-she didnt come off as a scared, phobic person she claims to be-she came off like a bull-full of piss and vinegar. She picked the wrong 2 to tangle with and I think she knows it. I bet at the reunion she was a lot more apologetic than she has been in her blogs and on the show.

      • klmh says:

        Not only that, in hind sight you saw it coming when she told Heather how she was acting badly by not inviting Ramona, and there were a few more occasions that Im blanking on now, but ADiva was telling people they were wrong and she was right. A know it all from the get go, but many didn’t see it because we were shocked Heather didn’t ask Ramona, and supported her outrage.

        • ramonacoaster says:

          Yes we’ve seen it before and with other cast members. We see the outrage when Carole told her she smokes pink cigarettes. I think Aviva feels that if people don’t live their life according to her standards, there is something wrong with them. She’s used to getting her way. When someone like that comes up against Ramona, you have to overreact to get your point across. Problem is she took it too far even 8 months later.

    • MamaZ says:

      I agree that Aviva isn’t crazy. But I do think she behaved badly on more than one episode. If I were going on a girls vacation my friends would not want my husband there. And I can understand why. If I insisted on bringing him I would never expect them to shower him with affection and praise. I think Aviva is a spoiled brat. And I find her father DISGUSTING!

      But Ramona and Sonja have behaved poorly as well. I think if at least one of them had shown up for Aviva’s charity event things might have gone differently. I know Sonja’s dog was sick. As a dog lover myself I would have missed it too but I think Aviva was right when she said if there had been drinking or men involved Sonja would have gone. I am really sick of Sonja’s sick kitten routine. She hasn’t been a kitten for a long, long time. It’s desperate and unattractive. Ramona was an awful house guest. If I had invited her and she behaved that way in my home I would never invite her again. And she needs to think before she speaks. I know she came from an absive household. But she is grown up now and needs to stop using that as an excuse to spout whatever obnoxious crap that pops into her head. I’ve said it before, I don’t know how she manages to run a business behaving that way.

      As for NJ I don’t really think anyone is turning Teresa into a saint. She is a terrible person. What bothers me is that I think Caroline,Jaq, Melissa and Kathy are terrible people too. I’m not pro Teresa but I am anti everyone else on the show!

      I still love NeNe though even though I am sometimes put off by the things she says and does. She’s the first Housewife I really liked and the only one I could see myself hanging out with.

    • disgrazia4 says:

      I don’t agree that anyone here is trying to make a saint out of Teresa. I think that many find it unreasonable and very unsettling to see the hand of Bravo so intimately involved in manipulating a storyline that consists of family members ganging up on one person in order to scapegoat for every sin we are all well aware they each are guilty of as well Do the other franchises do this? To a lesser extant they all partake in this activity but without, as appears, such devastating consequences. The ramifications in the NJ debacle personally affect innocent family members including children who are cousins and elderly parents in ill health. Personally, I believe the fact that NJ is a family drama is what so many find so particularly offensive about it. While other hw’s can walk away from each other after the camera’s are packed up, this family remains attached to this drama, a drama heavily distorted by Bravo story manipulating. That aspect makes it deeply troubling for many viewers. May Bravo enjoy their profits. They were gained at great cost.

      • MamaZ says:

        Bravo did the same thing with Danielle. I was never a fan of hers but the way the cast went after her was ugly. And Teresa was a big part of that.
        Danielle even said on WWHL that she didn’t mind playing the villain. I think maybe Teresa feels or felt the same way. The problem is that even if things start out scripted people get way to into it and things are said and done that cannot be taken back. Real feelings are hurt. Real friendships and families are broken up.

        • disgrazia4 says:

          I completely agree with you MamaZ. These people are not professional actors and they’re playing themselves. How can the lines NOT get blurry? Add to that the type of personality that would be drawn to this type of endeavor and oye, you’ve got the makings of a disaster on your hands. Personally, I cannot imagine anyone feeling truly comfortable being a villain when the story is your life. Soap opera actors tell all the time of being vilified on the street when they play villains in a completely fabricated story. Imagine when the story is your life and you can’t even defend yourself because of contractual obligations. That cannot be what anyone would be satisfied with, no matter what the salary, IMO.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          You are right MamaZ, Tre was a more than willing partner in the “gang up” on Danielle. She wasn’t the grand supreme bully but, she was a willing soldier. No amnesia here. Karma Karma Karma!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        If the accusations are true that people here want to make Teresa into a saint, I thought I would share this link with you alleged Saint Makers:
        The accused “Saint Makers” could order Teresa a “certificate of Sainthood” or construct a “Cyber Shrine” for her. Good luck! 🙂

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I have lived over half my life. One thing I have learned is the a woman’s reputation means a lot. If a group of women feel that a associating with a woman might bring that reputation down, they act quickly to eradicate that danger. Season one and two painted Danielle as a women with a unstable persona and a bad reputation solidified by a crime novel. Some viewers seem more then happy to have Danielle in the lives of the NJ housewives cast but how would you like to have her in your own life? I have had friends like Danielle, they are a self absorbed nightmare train wreak of unlimited drama, not worth the time or energy. They see nothing in destroying another’s time and good will to keep the drama going. Danielle was smug about it. Maybe it was an act on her part but isn’t that why we call them drama queens? JMHO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            You are correct, I’d be more than happy to have Danielle in the lives of the NJ housewives’ cast. I am not ever trying to make any of this housewife stuff personal but I will address your question about whether or not I would have Danielle in my own personal life. If I, like the NJ cast, was guaranteed a six or seven figure paycheck for a few weeks of putting up with Danielle, I would be happy to have her in my life, too. I don’t think either of those proposed scenarios are actually ever going to play out, but that’s my position. Sorry that you’ve had experiences with people like Danielle, I have too, and I wouldn’t want to relive that, because those experiences, unlike those of the NJ cast, WERE NOT accompanied by a big fat paycheck.

            • disgrazia4 says:

    • lizzle says:

      Hello DJ… I am sorry that these shows have affected you in this way. But please don’t let the shenanigans of twitter discourage you from commenting here. As for T and the fired producer… conspiracy theories are always popular… I mean…we are still wondering if the CIA killed JFK! As far as Aviva goes, she is a reality novice and she went too far. Now that she sees how it appears on screen… she will probably adjust next year. Her mistake was not owning her behavior until the backlash had reached epic proportions and for many… the apologies that were riddled with the same crazy explanations…. were too little, too late. And yes! LuAnn’s grubby little hands were all over that one…. so why does Aviva still love LuAnn? I firmly believe Lulu got her to that heightened state of cray!

      And those moments you speak of like Sonya kicking Alex out of the party…. I was pissed at Sonya! But I wasn’t on twitter at the time. I think more housewives fans are on twitter than ever before. I mean, it was the reason I joined! Although, I don’t comment much.. I just stalk the housewives!

      Anyways… I miss your comments here! So keep telling us how you feel!

      • lizzle says:

        Sonja not Sonya

      • LaineyLainey says:

        A couple of months ago I was getting my nails done and a woman stated (in all seriousness) the she knew Elvis was still alive. I guess we all believe what we want to believe.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          In a way Elvis is still alive. His art will live on forever. IMO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            CAP, that is not what she meant. She went on to elaborate about Elvis sightings and about how he needed to escape his fame and live as a regular person…someone in the salon giggled and she got angry. When she left there was a collective guffaw in the salon. But of course Elvis’ art does live on forever, ITA!!! 🙂

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Well the same has been said about JFK and Diana, Princess of Wales. That they are on some island some where living in peace, must help some people sleep better at night, me not so much. JMHO.

              Everybody knows Elvis is a vampire living in Louisiana. He once protected Sookie. 😉

    • chismosa says:

      i agree with your entire feelings on NJ. Hope you decide to stay around/ check in

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I hope they keep everyone on RHoNY except Aviva.

    • Christi44 says:

      I think that people like to comment and judge what they see on the show. That is what we do with all TV shows. When Revenge comes back on, I am sure my friends and I will be dishing about the Greyson family. The difference with Real Housewives is that the people are real and we don’t know for sure how much is scripted and how much is spontaneous. Like someone said below, the lines get blurry. I don’t know Adiva and may find her pleasant in person. She is, however, on a TV show that is supposed to entertain us. I don’t have a problem with people commenting on the behavior she shows us on screen.

      With New Jersey, it is different. They are family and some viewers seem to be emotionally invested in their saga. Viewers have mostly taken “sides” and tend to call out the other side, but ignore the transgressions of their “side” (kind of like in politics). For example, glossing over the financial issues of the Gorga’s, Manzo’s, and Laurita’s and calling out JoGu for his comments, but justifying those of JoGo and Richie OR forgetting to mention that Teresa lied about the timeline too and picking up on the connection between Melissa and producers, but dismissing the connection between JoGu’s brother and the owner of the salon. I guess my point is every one of them has lied, manipulated, and tried to play victim. I don’t think any of the cast members are saints and I also don’t take delight in any of their pain. At this point, I wish they would all leave the show and fix their families in private. Until then, they should expect continued criticism of their behavior. At least that is my 2 cents (and probably not even worth that).

      • LaineyLainey says:

        No C44, your two cents is at least twice that. I’ll give you 4cents! You should be honored as I am very cheap. Except when it comes to my hair, nails and feet. Quite the intellectual, I am, huh? But seriously, I think your comparison about this Reality “taking of sides” is very reminiscent of politics and choosing a candidate. A lot of blustering, filibustering and even passionate outcries for what? In truth nobody ever truly changes their mind completely because of a single comment from any of us. It is, however, good, healthy discourse. A way to connect strangers with each other. To form friendships to feel accepted and like our opinions matter to someone. Anyone? For me it’s an excuse to use a big word like “schadenfreude”…heh heh heh. For others it’s an opportunity to use a fun word like “shenanigans”. For some of us, it’s An excuse to exorcise our own demons or to exercise one’s writing skills (or lack thereof). That is not to say that I don’t enjoy reading everyone’s impassioned opinions, because I do. So carry on everyone and have fun!! (not that you need my permission) Lord knows you put up with me, and for that I am grateful! 🙂

        • Christi44 says:

          Don’t get me wrong… I really really enjoy reading the comments (even when I don’t agree) and occasionally posting 🙂 That is why this board is so great.

  15. The Tin Man says:

    Teresa said when Angelo started talking about her family, she left the room, went downstairs, and couldn’t hear what he said, BUT when Kim told her she could come back, she heard that easily enough. I don’t believe anything that comes from Teresa. The others may very well be lying, but so is she.

    • BB says:

      I think they’ve all (including Andy) lied so much they don’t even realize when they are lying.

    • PJ says:

      You don’t see absolutely everything, it’s heavily edited. Also it isn’t shown in chronological order so you have to take that into consideration. Plus some scenes are re shot to make them better. I don’t think we can believe a lot of what we see especially after this so called set up. I think this is the death knell of this show.

    the things that make you say hmmmm

    later kids

        B O R I N G here at work..even sent home the sign kid…pouring down rain here AGAIN in sunny fla…LOL

    • chismosa says:

      what happened with her brother? interesting
      She seems like an only child to me

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I assumed she was an only child. Guess I was wrong.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          You can be in a big family and still be a spoiled brat. Birth order can come into play. The big issue with Adiva was the accident that took her foot. The family seemed to have never recovered. When I was 6 it was really hard to get away from grown ups. She said that they were playing in the wrong place. I wonder if she was with an older child. The owners of the farm were sued. This story is a good example of how guilt can destroy a family. forever. IMO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Only coming from my perspective as a teacher; I can usually guess when there are no other siblings at home; i.e. “only children” they possess a big and impressive vocabulary, they are usually more comfortable with adults than with peer group, they scold everyone else, somewhat unforgiving, they are the center of the universe without question etc. I can also spot the eldest (perfectionists, responsible, helpers, nurturers, leaders), the middles (peacemakers, witty, clown, self-sufficient, don’t want to make waves), the baby of the family (babyish – duh, cute, helpless when it’s convenient, self-centered, wants to be center of attention and fights for it, etc.). As with Aviva, every now and then I am totally wrong. I had her pegged as an only. WRONG. Perhaps as you said CAP the tragedy has coloured everything else (these are not textbook family dynamics). It is, without question, a unique situation.

    • PJ says:

      She probably never noticed she had one.

  17. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Its very revealing that the only way Melissa can get a magazine cover is by mentioning Teresa. Not about her singing, her immediate family or anything remotely positive.

    If you notice Melissa doesnt have any female friends aside from her sisters. That is very telling to me.

    • chismosa says:

      US nor any of these other mags would never take any reality show personality if it didn’t involve the storylines/ gossip going on in their lives. Even someone like Bethenny wouldn’t book a cover unless it was going to go deeply into all her inner life stuff, i.e. marriage troubles right now and stuff. Why even book them? No sales … and these mags are struggling right now with online availability of gossip.

      Teresa was on 400 covers of mags, Melissa never EVER begrudged her that– at least i never saw that onscreen,– she just wished Tre had been honest about it and the nasty allusions and comments made inside. I find nothing wrong with being in or on cover of the mag., just don’t bash and bash others when there is no evidence to back that up. I think everyone can say by now, there’s evidence of what Tre has done to bash Melissa both onscreen and off, so just IMO, i feel it’s fine for her to be on a cover now. So what? Good for her, she’s had (IMO) Tre tearing at her all two seasons long. And she’s- to use the favorite word– *hustling* on her music career. And i know everyone here hates her music but i think her music is 100000x better than the other housewives’ natural voices or production (except production of Kandi’s song for Kim)- so i can’t begrudge her going out and following her dream. Plus it’s a talent she can’t fake, the singing is her voice, at least i was impressed when i hear her sing a cappella. (i know auto tune is involved– similar but imo, much less of a degree than how much a ghostwriter, a dictionary, and copying mommy’s recipes are.) The talent is innate. JMHO.

      • chismosa says:

        (Kandi doesn’t count of course, she’s a singer by profession)- meant that above

      • ATLnNYC09 says:

        I never said that Melissa begrudged or really criticized Teresa. I simply stated that she cant get a cover of a magazine without mentioning Teresa. She once again is, however indirectly it is, using Teresa to publicize and promote herself. This is one of the main reasons that many people dont like Melissa. She uses Teresa and taking her down as a means of making herself successful.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          True. She sings one note. The “Teresa” note. La, la, la, la, la,laaaaaaaaaaa! the chorus: “Teresa, bad. Me good. “

        • PJ says:

          I think she does begrudge Teresa anything good that comes Teresa’s way.

          • disgrazia4 says:

            I also think that she has bashed Teresa from day 1 and hard. Anyone who thinks otherwise is puttin’ de blinders on,IMO.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        My singing voice is similar to Melissa’s. I’m not bragging, believe me. My daughter even said so, “Ma, she sounds like you!” and then we both died laughing! Hey my daughter was being honest and that’s ok with me. I wonder how someone like Melissa (or I) would do in a blind audition like the show “The Voice”….that type of stage is where the truly “innately talented” shine. Where the judges can’t pre-judge you based on your facial appearance, age, race, weight cool dance moves,…etc. Just your natural voice. I am confident (weird choice of words, I realize) that NOT ONE chair would turn around for MY VOICE. I wonder if any chairs would turn for Melissa’s voice.

      • Rebecca says:

        The reason Jay Mohr no longer blogs RHONJ is because he was sick of Melissa.

        “Listen up! @melissagorga I CRUSHED Teresa four weeks in a row. I CRUSHED Joe G. Too! WHY ARE YOU ON REALITY TELEVISION THEN?!! Ahem “Joe has drank enough booze to blind Keith Richards”. Did you think I was mean when I said your daughter was the most beautiful child I had ever seen? Don’t remember a thank you. I never wrote that you made the sign of the cross with your LEFT hand did I?

      Melissa seems like a friendly girl, I feel she may have a friend or two stashed away. Just because we don’t see them on the show does not mean they don’t exist. Jill Zarin seemed to be Bethenney’s only friend until she got her own show. Then we got to see that she did have women friends. Kim Zolciak even had a best friend that we didn’t know existed.

    • PJ says:

      I was thinking the same thing, Melissa manufactures this drama and now she in on a magazine cover, talking about Teresa.

    Happy birthday DND,

    Sorry but i’m impressed Kathy is getting QVC. That’s pretty fantastic. I want to tweet her congrats….
    But right now i have bigger fish to fry in trying to contact Wendy Williams about WHY GOD WHY she is employing Jill Z. on some terrible friday gossip roundtable. Every Friday? Why Wendy!!??? Jill was on yesterday and i couldn’t take it. So i need to create facebook accounts/ twitter accounts to contact her on this because i think that is where they get feedback on Wendy.

    Hope everyone is having a lovely lovely weekend. Beautiful here in Long Island, just working on my big battle against Stinkbugs- it consumes me everyday over here.
    Thanks for the blogs! I loved the Danielle insider info…

  20. Okay, I will weigh in on the bring back Danielle thing. With all respect to the wishes of the writer of this portion of the blog, I just cannot see that ever happening. First of all, if the hope is that she will give details regarding the Melissa story, or how she was editied etc, all those “juicy details” as stated, that is a hope that would never come true. Bravo would contractually shut her down and tie her up in legaleze so that she would not be allowed to pull the curtain back on the wizards of oz. Toto would be sealed up in her basket and not allowed out.
    Secondly, Danielle is not a housewife the majority of fans felt they could “cheer” for. She showed herself to be disturbed (stalking houses with her kids in the car) and associated herself with groups of people that were willing to bring the necessary attitude and tools to harm other cast mates (bodyguards and guns and hells angels etc). Perhaps if she had not gone so far off the deep end in season 2 there would be a possibility of redeeming her, but her actions and her obvious glee in the potential wrecking of a childs charity event, and putting it bluntly, ballsing up to act all bad ass while she had guys with guns surrounding her one moment and then breaking down in tears all victimized the next show a person that needs to NOT be in the spotlight.
    Her actions season 2 made me personally BELIEVE the accusations in THE BOOK. She showed herself capable of being “THAT” woman.
    She may be a polarizing force, and may generate talk, but in the end I just see a woman with some issues that could go cray cray in a manner that makes Kelly seem reasonable and there is a danger there when the cray cray goes with guns. I dunno. could just be me.

    • BB says:

      I totally agree. I’m not going to watch anyway, but bringing Danielle back would be a big, big mistake IMO.

    • I’m struggling to understand how they kept Taylor Armstrong – and whether or not I’ll watch BH. I don’t get any pleasure from people self destructing.

    • disgrazia4 says:

      Dear DutchessofDryerLint (my very favorite and first remembered name when I began dropping by at IHJZ),

      You said it better than I did above and you are, of course, correct. I would love to hear what Danielle has to say. Hopefully she will be able to tell what really happened one day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I would watch if Danielle was brought back.

      • Rebecca says:

        I would watch if she came back for a segment to show off her emails from Melissa. I agree she got too caught up in the show and she got too dark and dangerous.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I would like her to only do voice overs like the women who committed suicide on Desperate Housewives. Danielle could explain all her stuff in voice overs while we look at emails and past footage in a classy edit. That is what I would do. But I really do not think that Andy or Bravo really have a problem with a dishonest timeline. I think they feel it is the function of doing business in 2012, in the digital age. IMO.

  21. VV says:

    Who on this blog is going to see Teresa? She will be at:

    PARAMUS, NJ, 1-3pm,

  22. Regarding RHNJ..Well, it’s obvious to me and I just don’t understand why the rest of you can’t see it. Of course I did go to the third eye party and now I have second sight. So I know for a fact all these beeches be cra-zee!

  23. Danielle to our guest blogger

    danielle staub ‏@daniellestaub
    thank you So very much for all that you said in your blog and continue to show me through your love and support! @BringDBack @bravoandy

  24. california35 says:

    Danielle? have I been gone that long? wow! i thought we were hoping NJ would clean house, not bring some back. hhmm
    Miami is back?
    ok i will stop, i am a bit lost for being gone…my fault 😛

    I have been waching NY, the only wives i am following. Aviva – wow! Carol is confusing me, Heather is coming around, Luanne continues to be the same. I am loving Ramona more and more, i like seeing her with Sonjia. they do seem like real friends, they have fun together but also talk about teal things. Sonjia, i feel for her. i hope she gets her life on track.

    i dont know who is still around, so i dont know who knows of me… i dont come often, but lately less. not because i dont enjoy the blog, or comments. love you and miss you all.

    i hope you have a nice weekend…
    thanks to the tweet i found this morning asking for me, i came here to check in.

  25. djprincessc says:

    Hi all! Not sure if this was already discussed but here is a link about the Gorgas that I found. Not sure if anyone has seen this but its crazy! If not maybe put it on the blog here for all to see?? Just an idea 🙂

  26. LaineyLainey says:

    DETOX – update #4 I sent D the comments on the “Hello Kitty” thread. Here’s her reply:

    Thank you so much for sending me these, Lainey! I really appreciate all the love. Please give my hugs and kisses to all the people below who sent these well-wishes (and everybody else too: Mel The Hound; Called A Princess; Lovemamaearth; Boobah; Boston; OMIB; Jill; ATL/NYC; Blue Eyed Girl; Orson; Amber; Lady C; No More Drama Bluesky…Oh, I know there are so many I can’t remember right now, but please tell them to charge it to my HEAD and definitely NOT to my HEART if I did not mention their names. All of this medication has my brain a bit loopy).

    I had a minor setback today (more shortness of breath and coughing). So, I’ve decided I’m just probably going to stay in bed for the next few days and do nothing but bathe, eat, use the bathroom, watch the ol’ boob tube and try to get back to commenting on the blog (I feel like I’m missing ALL the GOOD stuff! Damn!!). I don’t want this thing to turn into full-blown pneumonia.

    I might like to see Danielle Staub come back, but I wouldn’t want her to stay.

    Kelsey Grammar walked out before his interview with Pier Morgan because he saw an image of his ex Camille. What is this man guilty of that he can’t stand to see an image of his ex? What is he hiding from?

    • silexfan says:

      He is guilty of re-writing history to fit the reasons for his being married for so long to such a horrible woman, who helped him kick drugs, put him on the road to financial success, and whatever else he has re-written. I have seen this with other cheaters (my ex included) as it is part of the reason/story they give to their new gf/wife of the abuse they suffered for so many years and the selfless reasons they stayed with this horrible person. He is probably bitter about the money as well. We all thought it was strange they didn’t have a pre-nup, however there was really nothing to pre-nup at the time Camille married Kelsey. His finances were in the toilet from what we have all read previously.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      That is weird. What a loser Kelsey is.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        He is an odd one.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          lovemama, I do not think he is a loser. I think he is a dry drug addict. I also think celebrity can breed a certain selfishness, that is one part image, and survival but causes human damage to the stars interpersonal expectation. Maybe fans love them, but nobody else does in their perception, especially ex anythings. Anything that does not show unconditional love is colored in treasonous terms and banished to no mans land. Forever! IMO.

  32. Happy Birthday DND…. ENJOY…..


  33. LynnNChicago readers,

    As I said last month, I hope the entire Lynn Family is adjusting after the sudden passing of Lynn who instilled a great bond that has carried itself to this blog. I think you all are so amazing for having set up a fund for Lynn’s son as not a day goes by when I don’t think about my childhood friend who suddenly lost her parents and had barely anything.

    My mother was recently diagnosed Alzheimer’s disease after periods of memory disruption. I had an incredibly hard time dealing with it, but my mom’s positive outlook on life has been so inspiring to me that I started going to Alzheimer’s support meetings. These groups, set up by television/radio personality Leeza Gibbons, have been instrumental for me. I just wanted to let anyone here who has a family member or friend with Alzheimer’s that they are taking care of, please visit for information. Alzheimer’s is the 6th leading cause of death and affects nearly 5.5 million Americans. Since this is a place of love and support, I feel very comfortable sharing with all of you. Thanks,


  34. NMD,
    Cute new graphic!

  35. BB says:

    I like the new header. Probably looks like most of us when we’re watching the housewife shows!

  36. boston02127 says:

    Vicki Gunvalson’s tweet~~~~ A relationship is like a house. When a lightbulb burns out you do not go and buy a new house, you fix the light bulb.”

    Hmm…..ok Vickster

    • PJ says:

      Sure like she did with Don.

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      Um Vickster… you cant FIX a light bulb…. You REPLACE IT… and what’s with the equating a house to a lightbulb ?? I wonder how soon that LIGHTBULB will go off in her head… !!!
      I see a major conflict with Brooks as soon as grandbaby is born….baby will replace him in vicky’s life..

    • california35 says:

      poor V – i hope she wakes up soon. it is sad to see how she defends this “relatipnship” that many see as am unhealthy one, when we would see her complain a lot about the last one.

  37. Pizzle01 says:

    Was just watching re-runs of RHONJ and noticed that jac and T are wearing the very same outfits in the episode where jac is at T’s house and they are looking at things T can wear to Jamie’s wedding that was shown
    In the beginning of the season that jac and T are in the same exact clothes & shoes as last episode where Mel came over and jac was on the swing ect. Just thought that was interesting. It was T’s gladiator shoes that made me notice!

    • VV says:

      Good! Another timeline goof. They are wearing the same clothes because it was shot the same day. Editors are using footage to fit their time line and to tell whatever story editors want to tell. So, part of what they shot that day was used on an early episode and the other part for a later episode.

  38. california35 says:

    nice new banner 🙂 for a second i thought i went into the wrong blog.

    thanks to those who replied yesterday and whoever has asked about me 🙂
