Melissa Gorga claims Teresa called Antonia ugly!

4 Oct

More shocking details emerge from the terrible Us Weekly article featuring the Housewives Vs. Teresa. Interesting article, considering they bashed Teresa all year long for doing articles (about herself and her family, not her castmates). Melissa claims she got “not a penny” for her last cover bashing Teresa. Yet Jacqueline Laurita tweeted that “when its one person on the cover they get paid, when its three only one gets paid [I did not get paid].” Someone’s lying, but what else is new. Here are some details from the Us Weekly interview with the ladies, with more lies in my opinion as told to RadarOnline:

In an all new interview, the other RealHousewives of New Jersey have slammed themost unpopular cast member in the show’s history, and the details aren’t pretty,RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Not only has Teresa Giudice been accused to trying to set up her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga by revealing her alleged past as a stripper, new details have come out about how she has torn her family apart and allegations of how her husband, Joe, has cheated on her several times.

As the reunion shows kicked off last weekend, the Housewives spoke to the issue of US Weekly, and Melissa Gorga especially hinted that she has plenty still to reveal about husband’s sister.

“When she stops telling lies about me, I’ll stop telling the truth about her,” Melissa vowed.

After “Strippergate” feelings between the Housewives became super strained and Teresa barely has a relationship with her brother Joe Gorga now – and to make matters worse she’s making her parents take sides in the family feud!

Speaking about whenever Teresa, 40, sees her parents Giacinto and Antonia, Melissa,33, also said: “Every time they’re together she tells them a laundry list of terrible things against us.

“They’re more distant with us now. Joe feels like she’s poisoned their brains. Teresa needs them so they’re standing by her.”

Teresa’s marriage also comes under fire. In the second reunion episodeJacqueline Laurita claims that Teresa once caught Joe having sex with a woman on his desk and insiders say that Joe’s wandering eye is an “open secret”.

“You walked in on your husband when he had someone on the desk in his office,” Jacqueline told Teresa.

“Teresa and Joe are very unhappy,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Joe feels tremendous pressure to give her this big, over the top life.”

However Teresa furiously denied this, claiming: “We’re happily married. I don’t need to defend myself.”

Teresa is also accused of being totally heartless. When Jacqueline admitted at the reunion that her autistic three-year-old son couldn’t say “I love you” anymore the tears were flowing…everyone cried except Teresa.

Jacqueline said: “Teresa was like that all year. My son had been regressing while we were filming and I was doing a lot of crying.

“If I went to talk about my son she would quickly change the subject and start bashing her family. Despite what she’s claiming on TV she wasn’t there when I needed her the most.”

The reunion also showed some of Teresa’s most vicious behavior yet, according to the report.

Among other things Teresa slammed Caroline Manzo’s daughter Lauren, 24, for her decision to get a lap band procedure.

“Lauren has all time in the world to work out. She took the easy way out,” Teresa reportedly sniped.

And, even her seven-year-old niece Antonia wasn’t spared! Mom Melissa said that when she signed her daughter to a modeling agency, Teresa said: “I heard Antonia got accepted. Yeah the ugly kids always get picked.”

Melissa went on to say that Teresa is two-faced and fakes all emotion for the cameras, and that her teary reconciliation with Jacqueline was totally for show.

“That’s how she filmed with me,” Melissa said. “She’d be nice on camera and as soon as they were done, she’d be like ‘f**king b*tch’.”

And it’s got so bad that Melissa has put her New Jersey mansion up for sale. She added: “I moved to this town so my kids could go to school with their cousins.

“But after this I got really scared. I don’t want them around anybody who is bashing their mother.”

If Teresa did say this about Antonia, that is terrible. But honestly, I just don’t believe it. One because I don’t see her attacking a child like that and two, the girl is just so gorgeous I cannot see how anyone would say it. I think Melissa believes her own lies. And poisoning her parents again Joe and Melissa? Um, no. I think the parents clearly can see things like the above cover and know who is hurting the family. Teresa never brings them into this but Joe and Melissa clearly do. Sad sad sad…

RHONJ decoded: What they REALLY meant.

1 Oct

So being from New Jersey, I have the wonderful talent of being able to decode the verbiage that is RHONJ. Well that and I am an intuitive, snarky brat when I wanna be 🙂 So, here you have it. I am going to decode a few of the night’s best quotes and tell you what it really meant. Some may be paraphrased as I have no more Xanax left so I cannot watch the show again for accuracy. Buckle up bitches (can I say this at the start of all my posts from now on???), you’re about to be schooled…Jersey-style!

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: My mom let me have lapband…

What they meant: My Mommy paid for my lapband. Or was it Daddy?

What they said:  

Andy Cohen: Kathy, Kathy, we get it. Enough.

What they meant: Stop wasting airtime. You are irrelevant and not even going to be here next season.

What they said: 

Kathy Wakile: You’re father’s a coward.

What they meant: I am going to say the most shocking thing I can think of so that Andy and co. think I bring enough drama to be asked back. The mom is a liar thing didn’t work, so I am going to go with this.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: He was Audriana’s boyfriend, but now they broke up.

What they meant: I am uncomfortable and don’t know what to say so let me insert  joke here to ease the tension.

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: You and your Christmas pageant dress…

What they meant:  You look ten times better than me, so I better attack whatever else I can find.

What they said: 

Andy Cohen: You do go a little (hand signal crazy)  on Twitter

What they meant: Seriously Jac, you are bat shit crazy and your Twitter rants make you look like a fool. But do keep doing it, for ratings of course.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: Rich? Yeah, with his yellow teeth.

What they meant: Rich? Yeah, with his yellow teeth.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: I was on a red carpet and they asked me about Teresa.

What they meant: I was fame whoring and it was, like, so totally annoying that all they wanted to do, was like, talk, like about Teresa.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga:  That is so wrong. You don’t go on someone’s looks.

What they meant: Except of course when I am talking about Angelo, Kim D., or anyone else I deem worthy of an insult.

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: Spell napalm. Go ahead, define it, spell it, go ahead.

What they meant: I am a bitter, nasty bitch so I sit on the computer trying to find ways to discredit you while simultaneously throwing darts at a picture of Lindsey and suckling from Mommy’s teet.

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: Yes you did and I have the recordings to prove it.

What they meant: I can totally drum up any fake evidence I want and say legally I cannot play it. WOO HOO! Everybody drink!!!

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: Hi Andy.

What they meant: Everybody drink!

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: My brother and I were very scared for her and her mental state.

What they meant: She got ridiculously drunk at Kim G’s house the night before and we were afraid she would either castrate Andy or blow some of Bravo’s best kept secrets.

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: This bitch is crazy.

What they meant: JOE!! Yell shame on you from backstage or no sex for a week!

What they said: 

Kathy Wakile: Your show, the Teresa Show.

What they meant: Its not just your show, anyone can be on it. Well, except me. Because its more fun watching paint dry than me bike riding, pretending to want to buy restaurants I cannot afford, taking my daughter to see colleges she has no intention of attending or watching my husband in any capacity whatsoever.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: Yeah, everytime you are with my parents you tweet a picture of it to piss me off.

What they meant: This, this and two others that were since deleted. 

What they said: 

Lauren Manzo: Because of dickheads like you.

What they meant: This freaking dress is cutting off my circulation.

What they said: 

Jac Laurita: You wanted me to call her out and call her a stripper.

What they meant: I would  never do such a thing. I have a, uh, soft spot, for ex-strippers. Unless its Danielle Staub. Then its wrong. EVERYBODY DRINK!

What they said: 

Jac Laurtia: They hid assets, and purposefully defrauded.

What they meant: We hid assets better than them. EVERYBODY DRINK!

What they said: 

Caroline Manzo: I want to go home.

What they meant: Al is alone in Atlantic Titty. I NEED to keep on eye on him.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: You said in your blog Jacqueline that I never spoke badly about Melissa and Joey, to you.

What they meant: Yeah, I read famewhorgas.wordpress.com bitch!

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice:  Blubber, Blubber and Blubber.

What they meant: Didn’t you wear this dress last year? Either way…too tight.

What they said: 

Teresa Giudice: You copied my eye shadow.

What they meant: You want to be me. You copy everything I do. I am going to use a poor example of this because I am on the spot, but you really really do.  

What they said: 

Melissa Gorga: Can you look at me? I am tired of staring at your weave all night.

What they meant:  If you don’t face me, how can I get camera time?

Well there ya have it…there is more I could translate, but I will save my sanity for part two.  Oh and p.s. Rosie Pierri meant exactly what she said…no translation needed.

Top ten things we learned from the RHONJ finale

24 Sep

Honestly, I don’t even know where to begin this time. Its like a trainwreck, one you cannot look away from but feel kinda dirty for even seeing. We are watching this for entertainment, and I get that…but we are also watching the destruction of a family. A once close and proud family. Its sad. Its a shame. And it was all done for a buck. Buckle up bitches…its about to get pretty bumpy…

Top ten things we learned from the RHONJ finale:

10) There was 100% a set up. I just can’t figure out who was ultimately set up and who was the mastermind. I do know, from multiple sources AT THE SHOW that filming was for hours and hours and we only saw snippets. What they WANTED us to see. Its obvious that the producers decided long ago to make Teresa the villain this season. Sources told us that conversations were edited and snipped together to show what they wanted to convey: That Teresa set Melissa up. Case in point…when Pete Giudice congratulated Teresa, he said “Congrats, good job, I am proud of you, you held your own”. He was referring to the verbal assault Teresa experienced outside the fashion show. But this was edited in to look as though he was congratulating her on her set up. He was not.

9) Angelo admits on camera “Teresa and Kim wanna blow the whistle on Melissa”. Ok, I get it. This is pretty damning. I will be the first to admit that as well. And if I am wrong, I will say I am wrong…but here is why I think I am not, when I say that I don’t believe he was saying that. According to a source, his conversation with the woman was almost 15 minutes long. We saw 20 seconds. Is it not plausible that he was saying Kim and Teresa wanted to blow the whistle on Melissa, meaning expose her as a bitch, in a rhetorical way, something that may have been said months ago. He then took it upon himself, with others help obviously, to use this opportunity to out Melissa. If he was talking about Teresa and Kim disliking Melissa and wanting to out her, in a past tense, we would never know, because it was pieced together right in with him talking about Melissa dancing. Case in point: Rich Wakile said that he did not say that fish comment. He claims Bravo pieced it together and edited it in. So…which is it? Cameras don’t lie? Or camera can show what they want you to see?

8) Which is it…Angelo is a liar and Melissa was not a dancer…but its not conceivable to think he would lie about Teresa being behind this?

7) So outing someone for their past is horrible and wrong and sneaky? I think Danielle Staub would have a bone to pick with Caroline Manzo on that subject (who found the book written about Danielle and brought it out Season 1 for all to see).

6) Jacqueline Laurita is a shit-stirring drama queen. Jacqueline gets a text saying Teresa set this up..so naturally it must be true. Did this remind anyone else of a grade school game of telephone? She runs and tells Joe Gorga? Good friend! How about asking Teresa first. And sorry but Teresa did not accuse you of setting up Melissa. She accused you of setting HER up.

5) I am from New Jersey. I can say with 100% certainty that Lookers Gentleman’s club is NOT a bikini bar. Its a go-go bar. While the women cannot strip totally naked if alcohol is served, by NJ law, it does not and will not mean it doesn’t happen. They don’t have a back room for nothing… Melissa says she worked for 1 week as a bartender. Yet her lawyer sent pay stubs to All About the Real Housewives to prove she was “only a bartender”. These stubs show nearly a year of employment. Which is it Melissa? Can’t keep the lies straight?

4) Joe Gorga spoke inappropriately to Kim D. No doubt. Whether she was wrong or right or did this or not, he was not appropriate to her. Especially since he had no proof at that point as to who did what. Sources say he raised a hand to her, but it was edited out in the event of making the Gorgas look better. I cannot confirm this, but its what we hear…

3) Its one thing to be drunk at a night out in a bar with people of age. Another to be drunk at a children’s christening in the middle of the day. Just sayin’

2) Kathy is irrelevant. She came on the show to be a backup to Melissa so she wouldn’t be alone in her hatred to Teresa. But what does she offer? Cannolis? Oh, and Lauren Manzo is the devil’s spawn. Seriously, that girl is a miserable bitter excuse for a female. I hear she is such a super-douche at the reunion. Why is she even there? Why was she even at the fashion show? One minute she is a bitter angry bitch, the next she is a boring wet mop. Nice little combo of her parents, that one.

2a) Rich Wakile and his man boobs was not threatening or scary showing up to the fashion show. Not in the least.

1) RHONJ lost its sparkle. Its so dark. Where is the show about affluent women shopping with a little snark here and there? Why is it all about Teresa’s family? She was the one on the show. She did not sign up with family. The Manzos did. But you can bet the 5 siblings Caroline doesn’t speak to would never be well received on the show. I miss the show about over the top parties and paying for furniture in cash. I miss the laughs. I miss the friendships. I miss the housewives. I’ll end with pointing out that all of the above was gone as soon as Melissa and Kathy joined the show.

Melissa Gorga talks Posche Fashion Show, says Teresa plotted to stay on top!

19 Sep

Melissa Gorga took to her Bravo blog (two days after Teresa, as usual, to rebuttal). She says she was absolutely never a stripper. She doesn’t deny being a dancer, though, but I digress. Anyway…she basically uses her blog to bash Teresa. No this isn’t her blog from April, May, June, July or August. Its her most current smear campaign. While I agree with her that things are convenient and definitely a setup, I do not agree that Teresa was in on it. She says: Continue reading

The Real Hypocrite of New Jersey

19 Sep

I try to remain objective, I really do. I call it like I see it, and this being a blog, I do state opinions. But sometimes I just can’t let the hypocrisy go.  Let’s look at a few of the reasons why I think Melissa Gorga is a famewhore hypocrite. Continue reading

Jacqueline Laurita stirs the pot!

17 Sep

In this exclusive clip from next week’s explosive finale of RHONJ, Jacqueline Laurita effectively stirs the pot to the point of boiling over at the Posche Fashion show. She gets a “text” from a bravo producer friend who tells her that the salon incident was staged and Teresa, Kim and Angelo (the bald guy) were laughing about how they were going to set up and embarass Melissa. Clearly, watching the episode, we see this is not the case and Teresa was genuinely upset/surprised. But Jacqueline has to get involved and tells Melissa…thus igniting the stippergate of 2011.

Check it out here:

Caroline calls it Jac’s a-ha moment. Yup…its my a-ha moment too. I am now aware that Jacqueline is a moron who believed idle gossip (which was wrong!!!) and ignited a storm that is now beyond repair. Teresa felt setup herself, and in frustration, accuses Jacqueline…who then goes off on one of her tirades. Seems everyone else can get pissed and make accusations and insults…but if Teresa does, she is “scum”. SMH…

Teresa tells Melissa what was said at the salon!

17 Sep

In this exclusive clip from next week’s explosive RHONJ finale, Melissa and Teresa finally have the turning point moment in the their relationship. Melissa is primping while Teresa is basically freaking out that the man from the salon (who told her Melissa was a stripper) appeared.  Teresa is genuinely freaking out, tryingt to piece together what the hell is going on.

Check it out here:

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-4/videos/playing-dumb-may-not-pay-off

 

I honestly think Teresa had no idea what was going on. I do agree that there was a set up, but I have no idea WHO was the culprit. Kim D? Bravo? The bald guy? Either way, it seems obvious to me that Teresa had no idea which end was up. Sad.

Jacqueline Laurita talks “scheming and calculating” Teresa

12 Sep

Someone has abducted Jacqueline Laurita. This Bravo blog could not possibly be written by her. Its only two paragraphs! Where is the T bashing? Where are the misguided metaphors? Where are the paragraphs upon paragraphs of nonsense? She glazes over how she said she was disappointed not to be invited to the Fabellini party. And she contradicts what she said on Sunday’s episode in her interview… Continue reading

Teresa APOLOGIZES to Lauren Manzo!!!!!!

10 Sep

Not that she deserves it, considering she makes fun of and calls out Teresa for everything from breathing to global warming. But Teresa took to her Bravo blog to explain her friendship with Dina AND last night’s episode:

It was so weird to see the girls going back to school this episode since that’s what they did last week, but a whole year later! Milania just started 1st grade, Gabriella went into 2nd grade, and Gia is in 6th! 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. I also loved seeing them with Antonia and Melissa. Milania and Antonia have been best friends since the day they were born, and it hurts Milania a lot not to get to see her cousin as much as she used to. 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! So I had my Fabellini launch party after the Napa trip. I didn’t invite Jacqueline, because I didn’t want her drama there. 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 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!) Caroline, well, that’s obvious. I invited Kathy, but she was in D.C. with her family. And of course I invited Melissa and my brother. They chose not to come. I haven’t seen my brother, for a whole year, until the reunion this past Friday… you’ll see what happens there… Yes, I did lose my voice, yes I did sing On Display (I hope those two things aren’t related!), and yes it was a reunion to remember! I invited all of my friends to my Fabellini party, which includes and always has included Dina. I invited other Housewives from other cities, my best friends from In Touch, Andy was invited, everyone I love! We had it at the Brotherhood Winery where Fabellini is made, and it’s an hour and a half outside of Manhattan, so I get why everyone couldn’t come. I was delighted to see Dina though, as we’re always there for each other. I have been friends with Dina for over 15 years — I met her when she was pregnant with Lexi! — and I was friends with her first. She introduced me to her family. She’s Audriana’s godmother. When she decided to leave the RHONJ show, I publicly and privately supported her, as I do with everything she does. I think she’s beautiful and talented, and I love her. When she had a falling out with Caroline, she stopped talking to me too for a while, not because we were fighting, but because she knew I had to film with Caroline and Jacqueline and she didn’t want to put me in the middle. I have Dina’s back, but I learned a long time ago not to take sides in family fights, because when the family makes up, you look like the jerk. 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’m happy that the Fabellini party was such a success and the drink itself too! It’s doing so well and we’re about to go national! We have a new website with information about the drink (it’s only 127 calories per serving with 12% alcohol!) and where to buy it. Thank you all for supporting me… for better or for worse! Here’s to a future full of better! 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…

Do you think Lauren deserved an apology? I don’t. Yes it was a mean dig but its not like Lauren hasn’t been dissing T on twitter for two years! T NEVER EVER stoops to that level on twitter and only recently defended herself. I am glad she talked about Dina too…the reunion looks like it will be EPIC! Can’t wait!
