Sorry, I have too much going on today to try to explain the RHONJ trailer with interpretive dance and sign language. I can’t grasp why Bravo guards AN ADVERTISEMENT for their show like gold and doesn’t make it embeddable for all. So I will do a bit of purple pen on the press release and call it a day.
NEW YORK – May 24, 2016 – There won’t be any lazy days of summer when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” returns for its much anticipated seventh season on Sunday, July 10 at 8pm ET/PT. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new Housewives, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, along with the return of a true Jersey veteran, Jacqueline Laurita. Also appearing this season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.. Wait whut? What happened to the lesbian couple? They aren’t mentioned at all? I thought they were downgraded after the fight in Vermont (that was Jac’s fault) but no mention at all? So you can hit people all day long in Atlanta, but not Jac Laurita? If they were cut out, then why were they at the finale filming that Jac refused to show up for?
Last night, the RHONJ finale was filmed a Macauso’s catering hall in Hawthorne, NJ. The pretense of the gathering, where the women are supposed to attempt to resolve all of the storylines was …… wait for it! …… a fashion show. But it was not a Posche fashion show a the Brownstone. This year, there is a new boutique owner in town. Remember when Teresa almost violated probation trying to make it home by curfew after filming the opening of Melissa Gorga’s new shop, Envy? Well, Envy Fashion Show is the new Posche Fashion Show.
Teresa was of course there as required to support her sister-in-law, Melissa. Those two have formed a surprisingly tight alliance in season seven. All the newbies were there including Robyn Levy and her wife Christina Flores, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania.
According to Vicki Hyman of NJ.Com, “The event was open to the public, but tickets were $85.39 for standing-room only to $370.24 for the VIP experience, which included a front row seat, a photo with “Real Housewives” stars, an open bar, dinner and gift bag.”
And in true RHONJ um…. fashion, no storylines were resolved and one returning housewife committed a major production no no and refused to film. In case you had not heard the bad news, Jaqueline Laurita is back on RHONJ, according my sources she is a full housewife. Or she was. She may now be bumped down to a friend since her tantrum last night. Continue reading
Teresa Dog Sledding in Vermont!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been filming since even before Teresa Giudice was sprung from prison. Last week a few of them went on the group trip. Teresa was joined by Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga and Robyn Levy and her wife Christina Flores. What is NOT clear is whether or not Juicy Joe is there. I get the feeling since it is so close to his self-reporting day, and well, you know, so close to the border with Canada, he was not allowed to go. Teresa has posted 99 pictures of her with Juicy at a recent family wedding. I’d assume that if he were allowed to go she would have a photo of them together in Stowe.
We have photos of Joe and Melissa, and we have photos of Robyn and Christina. I don’t know too much about that last couple. But I have to say their Instagrams are full of photos of their adorable kid (kids?). I mean I don’t really get twitching ovaries over babies, but their kid is adorable. They are supposedly long time friends of Teresa and Juicy’s who conveniently showed up when gay marriage is the new black. If you recall both Giudice’s have made disparaging comments about the gay community and don’t really strike me as having any gay friends. Regardless, they’re here, they’re queer and they have an adorable kid or two. I like them already.
According the above report by Entertainment Tonight, Bravo cameras were following Melissa Gorga as she sets about to open a boutique. The story says they are not sure if she if filming for the upcoming three part special with Joe and the girls, but I’m pretty sure that is already in the can. Also, Melissa opening a boutique is not a storyline for the Teresa is in Prison special. It is a storyline for RHONJ though. It’s one of the last businesses left that Melissa has not already tried.
This actually makes sense. Last season, filming started during the holidays. The season premiere in July and had a million episodes ending in November. If they start filming now, they can all sit around and gossip about Teresa being in prison, stop by and see Joe and the girls and then film the whole house arrest thing with Teresa around Christmastime.

It seems that Jac an Chris Laurita may FINALLY be evicted from their Franklin Lakes home. After two or more years of legal issues related to their alleged theft from Chris’ company for things like cars and private jets it seems it is finally time to pay the piper.
It’s bizarre to me how long it takes for people to actually get thrown out of their McMansions for not paying their mortgage. I first reported on this story in April of 2013 ! And the bank is just now filing for foreclosure?
According to Vicki Hyman of NJ.com:
Another “Real Housewives” star could be real house-less soon. Hudson City Savings Bank has filed papers in Bergen County Courthouse to foreclose on the Franklin Lakes home of Jacqueline and Chris Laurita. Another home owned by Chris Laurita, located in Wayne, is also being foreclosed upon. Continue reading
I suppose this is as good a time as any to tell you what I know about RHONJ and the upcoming season. Everything is on hold for now. It looks like the twins and the other bitch are hoping to be asked back but that is unlikely. Manzo’d With Children is still filming for their upcoming season. Melissa Gorga, Kathy Wakile and Jacqueline Laurita are all filming minor parts on that show hoping it seals the deal for them to be back on RHONJ. Before I tell you who will be back….
Here is what someone posted on Teresa’s Twitter today.
” Thank you everyone for all of the cards, letters, and kind words of support I love, love, love you all xo T!” Sounds like someone got a pickup letter and her PR team is working her fans.
Moving on to what I have an exclusive source on. Continue reading
