Dina Manzo speaks! Says Teresa had NOTHING to do with family issues

16 Oct

Dina Manzo, ever the classy lady took to her personal blog to finally (or once again depending on how you look at it) clear the air about the last few episodes of RHONJ, her family issues, Teresa and bullying. Dina says:

A lot of you are wondering why in the world I would film with Teresa after staying away from the housewives for so long. Let me first say that I’ve gone to every single one of Teresa’s parties that I’ve been invited to, most of which the cameras were NOT rolling.  When Teresa asked me to attend the fabellini launch my first question was “will there be cameras there?” She said yes, but you can come after they leave”…as I have done in the past. But that’s not where it ended…

(What most of you don’t know and you can choose to believe this or not, but up until the night of the deck debacle and Teresa showed up at my doorstep crying, I had no idea that she was even fighting with Caroline and Jacqueline, that’s how much I stayed out of that bullshit and even after that night I had no idea of the extent of the hate until I watched it live with all of you)
Now back to the fabalini launch…I showed up 2  1/2 hours late hoping the cameras would already be gone (I know that it was naive of me) I was promised that I didn’t have to be mic’d at first, just show that I was there to support Teresa. When I arrived one of the producers took me aside and explained to me that Teresa was really taking a beating this season and needed some much needed “on air” support. As a friend I felt bad for her, as a human being I never like to see anyone standing alone (I was always that girl in the lunch room who went to sit with the loner in the corner of the cafeteria) It is also why I was so quick to forgive Danielle at the reunion. I don’t like when Everyone is against one person and I certainly don’t like to see this happen to someone I care about.
Teresa has always supported me and has especially always supported Project Ladybug. She has come to every charity event I have ever asked her to and never complained taking this time out of her crazy schedule to help me. At the time I was even under the impression she was doing celebrity apprentice for ladybug. In the end she chose another worthy foundation, was I disappointed at first??? Absolutely, but she explained to me how she met this beautiful little boy with a rare disease and it really hit home for her. Now how can I be mad at her for helping a sick child? I was proud of her for giving a foundation that i was told had no prior national exposure a platform. BUT I would be lying if I also didn’t feel a bit obligated to be there for her “on air” too because of this. I would cut off my right bubbie for these kids and one quick scene on housewives didn’t seem that bad at the time…Boy was I wrong, do not mix booze with raw emotions…let me first explain that 90% of our convo was about her brother and Melissa. That is where the “blood is thicker than water” comment came in. Think about it, does it make sense that Teresa would bring that up about her and Caroline’s relationship?? You guys are smarter than that…
Now from my understanding this scene was shot AFTER even the reunion and things with her brother was worse than ever. I was explaining to Teresa that blood is NOT always thicker than water when her brother has to get in bed with his WIFE every night and not her….and we all know (unfortunately) about Joe Gorga’s poison. Water wins in this case every time! TRUST MESo here I am giving Teresa advice to just give her brother his space then she brings up my sister…did you see the look on my face? I was pissed but before you go getting mad at T I’m sure the producers convinced her this was a good idea, I could be mad at her but I understand the position she was in. I also understood via text from Jacqueline that I was a topic of not only season 3′s reunion that was just filmed but throughout season 4 as well. A part of me felt I should say my peace and I was pissed I was even brought up, I don’t know who did it and at this point I don’t even care.I had also had a few fabellinis on an empty stomach after a LONG day of shooting for HGTV and there was a lot of hurt off camera with my family who is on the show.  So I went ahead and said how I felt about the joke in the book. Do I regret talking about it on camera? Was it wrong of me?? Yes yes yes… But it’s done and I can’t take it back. I should have walked away but I didn’t. I do feel that this book nonsense is all that -nonsense…but I regret talking about it on film. Ok… It’s now Sunday night, I wrote this before I saw the last reunion tonight…I still feel the same about regretting filming but I DO NOT feel bad about defending Teresa, I know what it’s like to be on the other end of an attack like this and I don’t think it’s cool. She had nothing to do with my issues with my family in fact as I said before my issues stem back all the way from season 1. Teresa and the girls were buddy buddy up until last year, so please stop saying I chose her over my family…it’s really annoying. I would also like to say that I have 11 siblings…my family does not consist of just who is on this show and yes I do talk to the other 9 and I’m quite close to many of them and my parents. So enough with thinking I will die alone please…
 
I will publicly say I think they ALL handled this wrong…I begged some of the players (I won’t go into who) to just respond with kindness and all this will end. But I understand how emotions can get the best of you…they did tonight after I watched the show. I do wish all this could end, I don’t like seeing people especially WOMEN fight like this. If you can’t get along with someone or you feel that they just don’t like you…JUST STAY AWAY. Well at least that’s what works for me, you can completely FORGIVE people for how they treated you but it doesn’t mean you have to go back for more. Do you guys get it??? Thanks for listening~ Peace out
I wish they would stop blaming Teresa for their family feud. You can blame her for a lot but this? Its directly from Dina’s mouth that she has NOTHING to do with it (we hear its business issues and lack of familial support when Dina had to quit the show). Maybe Caroline, Jacqueline and even Chris will stop blaming Teresa and acting like they love Dina SO much.

SHOCKING PHOTOS! Adrienne Maloof beaten and bruised!

15 Oct

Adrienne Maloof’s chef, Bernie Guzman went on a facebook rant today. Seems he is accusing “someone” of physically harming Adrienne, and he has photos to “prove” it.

Bernie said: “Now you know….Everyone else needs to know. Its a secret I have kept…he must be stopped. IF I DON’T SPEAK OF KNOWLEDGE..DEATH IS CREEPING. HE IS TRYING TO STOP THESE PICTURES FROM GOING OUT. We can”t let him get away with this abuse. Now you know….Everyone else needs to know. Its a secret I have kept…he must be stopped. Adrienne did not put me up to this….I feel everyone needs to know.I’m sure she will be relieved everyone knows. Perhaps someone should TWEET THESE PICS. I think ANDY & BRAVO should know. ADRIENNE MALOOF WAS PUSHED TO THE GROUND.
PUNCHED & BEATEN….HE IS A BEAST.”

He then released these photos. He never mentions a name of who did this, as I will not, as nothing can be proven. Here are the shocking photos of a battered and bruised Adrienne.

I don’t even know what to make of this. I would never ever call a woman a liar if she is being abused. And I would never accuse a man of such without any proof. And why would her chef post these? Its confusing, disturbing and incredibly sad. Its like a more classy version of Taylor’s drama…

Kathy Wakile defends her father, Rosie and herself!

4 Oct

I am not a big Kathy fan, we know this. But I did find this to be a heartbreaking blog. There are no winners here. While I completely disagree with her words regarding Teresa and Joe’s parents, I am a tad more understanding of her situation and her reasons for getting angry. I just don’t like how she got angry (and Rosie is another story altogether). I do like that she coped to being wrong and being human. That’s all I have ever wanted out of any of the housewives, including Teresa. Accountability goes a long way for me. In her blog, Kathy writes: Continue reading

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…

EXCLUSIVE! RHONJ: Melissa Gorga’s Us Weekly connection revealed!

3 Oct

Well well, lookey what we have here. Melissa Gorga on a magazine cover. Why, you ask? Because of Teresa. The same cannot be said for Teresa’s covers, which are always about her. Her family, her marriage, her kids, her companies. Melissa on the other hand is only worthy of a cover story when playing the victim and talking ABOUT Teresa. The ladies faulted Teresa for having a “7 cover deal” with In Touch (which is bogus considering there is at least 15 covers out there to date). But let’s take a look at Melissa and her Us Weekly connection. Seems they always publish negative stories about Teresa…and coincidentally publish complimentary stories about Melissa. This girl certainly knows who and how to work it to get what she wants. Here’s why: Continue reading

Teresa speak to US Weekly! “Jac texted me at 1 a.m. the other night!”

27 Sep

Teresa spoke to Us Weekly on the red carpet at the NBA2K13 launch party about her costars, cat fights, drama and family. She goes on to say that she thinks she was the one set up at the fashion show, not Melissa. Best part? She calls her Melissa Marco! Obviously she finds Melissa unworthy of the Gorga name! She also elaborates on the text issue with Jacqueline Laurita and says that Jacqueline needs to leave her alone! She texted her the other night at 1 a.m. according to Teresa. She tells USWeekly: Continue reading

Reunion Sneak Peek: Rosie threatens Teresa!

25 Sep

Ok, this preview is disturbing. What started out as a fun show has turned into a dark and disgusting mess. In this clip from the three part reunion episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, it appears as though everyone is at their breaking point. It ends with Rosie, shouting from backstage (why are siblings even there..ahem Marco sisters..ahem).

Check out this clip from People.com which features insults, Kathy Wakile’s unrecognizable face, a hysterical Teresa Giudice, a comforting Caroline Manzo, a seriously pissed off Melissa and an utterly horrible exchange between Joe and Joe.

This is absolutely heartbreaking to watch and 100% not entertainment. Again, nothing got to this point until we met Melissa. Just sayin’.

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.

Season 5 RHONJ Scoop! Will Melissa be back?

19 Sep

Melissa Gorga tells Us Weekly she isn’t “ready” to be in the same room as her sister in law Teresa Giudice. Then maybe she won’t be on next season, as we are hearing Teresa was first to sign her contract for season 5! Thank you, Jesus! Hoping our source is correct on this one!!

Things between Melissa and Teresa seem to be broken beyond repair. While it isn’t much of a loss for them, it surely will be for Teresa and her brother, Joe Gorga. Especially hurt in this will be the innocents such as Mr. & Mrs. Gorga who will inevitably be put in the middle between their children….and the Guidice/Gorga children who absolutely love each other. Melissa is going on a defense spree (which naturally means she has to bash Teresa while proclaiming she was never a stripper). According to RadarOnline: 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
