Real Housewives of New Jersey – Who’s Filming – Who’s Not by NoMoreDrama
Bravo has lined up quite a cast of characters to entertain us for Season Five of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Let’s catch up on latest gossip of who is in, and who’s out.
First there is Manzo younger generation roommate Greggy Bennett. Greg shared this on twitter: “Fun Fact: I haven’t filmed 1 second for Season 5 of RHONJ. TTYN, I guess?”
TTYN according to the urban dictionary is Talk To You Never – coined by Paris Hilton in some sort of show where she was looking for a new BFF. As each contestant was eliminated, she said Talk to you never.
Greg made a joke about his lack of camera time, “I asked to be compensated in Dunkin Donuts gift cards, but they weren’t receptive, so I declined. Don’t be sad-I’ll still tweet about Selena.”
Then there is new Housewife Jennifer Dalton, who is by far and away my favorite Jersey housewife – mainly because I know very little about her and I’m tired of the other ones. Jennifer, Kim DePaulo, and Teresa all had lunch together at Teresa’s house a few days ago, and Jennifer tweeted photos of the three of them together and Kim posted them on her facebook page.
Jennifer’s tweet: “GREAT lunch at Teresa’s! So glad I have such a good friend that cooks cause I don’t lol!” and “Kim and I even got to go bags from Teresa THAT’S HOW GOOD IT WAS!!!!! Xx” and “
@Teresa_Giudice made the most amazing dish! Baked breaded chicken breast over romaine with her own olive oil dressing #delish“
I’m happy that Teresa has some friends to film with, but what in the world is Kim wearing??
Penny Drosso (the stylist who set up stripper-gate) has been pretty quiet since interviewing with TVfishbowl. Penny was pretty much cut out of every scene she filmed for in Season 4, but if Bravo needs someone to spill the dirt on Melissa’s past, Penny is pretty much promising to deliver – although her husband – Johnny the Greek – has implied on twitter that Penny’s participation on the show will only come if she’s paid.
Elvira (the party planner) has clarified that she is NOT an official housewife. Her tweet: “Happy New Year!! No confusion- not an official housewife!!!
#partyplanner having fun!!! Friend of @Teresa_Giudice.” Elvira has been on the show before, and clearly has Teresa’s back. Rumor is she isn’t being paid to appear on the show.
Danielle Staub. Rumors still swirl about Danielle Staub returning to the show. She’s still a little cray cray if you ask me. She tweeted this a few days ago “My security thank you sweeties for always being my friends and taking care of me :-)” Why would she need security? While I haven’t seen any photos of Danielle with cast members, she did respond to this tweet from Teresa about the Season 1 Cast Poster Teresa hung in her game room.
Teresa: “I’m glad you guys liked the pic of the gameroom. They gave us that cast pic after season one. I like it.”
Andy Cohen: “
@Teresa_Giudice I am glad you have it up!”
Here’s the picture if you missed it:
I don’t know if Rosie Pierri is filming for Season Five, but Kathy Griffin did a five minute bit on the reunion featuring Rosie’s backstage reaction. It was spot on, and Rosie got a kick out of it, tweeting: “Wow wow wow!!! I love how
@kathygriffin can do a Rosie impression!! Totally Honored !! I LOVE IT !!!”
Yesterday Teresa Giudice was in Atlantic City watching daughter Gia perform in a dance showcase for thePulseonTour – which seems to be some sort of dance instruction workshop with a showcase. (I sort of wonder if Abby Lee Miller and her girls are there too – wouldn’t that be a fun crossover?). It looks like Gia is doing a great job and hopefully we’ll see some of this on TV next year.
As for Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile, and Jacqueline Laurita, Chris Laurita tweeted this yesterday: “Hey
@joegorga @richardwakile. 3 beautiful girls want to have dinner with us tonight. You guys wanna go? LMK. Maybe we can get some after.” I sure hope he was talking about their wives LOL.
My guess is they were being filmed, because around 11 pm Jersey time, Richie Wakile tweeted this: “With
@joegorga @KathyWakile @melissagorga @JacLaurita @chris_laurita in the hot tub winter fun! Happy new year!!!”
Update on Adriana de Moura’s First Marriage by DesignDiva
Diva posted this in the comments on yesterday’s blog. Since I haven’t seen this on any other blogs or news stories, I thought I’d bring it up to the main blog. Looks like Adriana added the “de” to her maiden name after her first marriage. Now she’s calling it a typo. My guess is Bravo won’t be giving this liar a wedding spin-off.Marriage Date 01/04/1992 Husband Greg A Cummings Husband Born 1961/1960 Wife Adriana S Moura Wife Born 1966/1965 Certificate Number 005183
Bethenny Files for Divorce and Seems … Off by NoMoreDrama
Checking in with Bethenny Frankel. The holidays have been hard for Bethenny Frankel. She announced her separation from Jason Hoppy just before Christmas. Earlier this week she filed the paperwork for divorce (according to TMZ) and since then has seemed – well – a little off. Perhaps because she’s finally free to express what is going on – or perhaps in a bid for attention – her tweets are a lot more personal than usual. Here’s a few:
“Can’t sleep. Just read the last few pages of
@chelseahandler book “lies…” She is one sick broad.” but then she followed that one up with a joke, “At 3 AM I should have just screamed at myself “GO TO SLEEP!” Did images of Kelly Bensimon just jump into your head?
“Sharing breakfast with Bryn. Yum! Comfort food.”
“Tweeps, i need a smile, tell me 1 thing interesting that you can do & 1 you can’t. Me 1st: I can tie a cherry stem w my tongue.”
“I find myself sitting here coloring long after Bryn has stopped. I’m like “girl interrupted.”
I find myself wondering if Bethenny has any REAL (non-twitter) friends to talk to. I hope she finds what she needs to get through this.
