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.

Joe Giudice recently spoke with the Daily Mail about Teresa’s life in prison. Apparently, he is doing some publicity for the three-part special on life without Teresa that premieres on Bravo October 11th. Joe says life in prison is a lot like a “low budget spa” and complains that Tre leaves the family waiting in the visitation area while she gets her hair done.
I’m wondering who the off camera female voice is helping Joe find the right words at times and hoping that it isn’t Gia.
TMZ has apparently seen the screener and is making a big deal out of Teresa making a joke with Joe about phone sex. I doubt that will be more than a passing comment. I find it amusing that every outlet reporting on the show says that we don’t see Teresa’s face and only hear her voice. BECAUSE SHE IS IN PRISON.
Click through for an extended sneak peek of the show, and a the latests Tweet from Teresa, because apparently, Tweeting from prison is allowed at Danbury… Continue reading
Joe and Tre at the shore during happier times…
Joe Giudice and the girls went to the shore house this weekend for one last time before
it is auctioned by the bank school begins. The house is scheduled to hit the auction block tomorrow, August 18th, according to the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office. So Joe decided to have one last hurrah in the form of a big party. It appears that all of the girls were with him.
And the cops were called!
There are numerous accounts of what happened early Saturday evening when the party was in full swing. Let’s look at the two most reliable sources, shall we? Continue reading
There is a very interesting article published by People magazine tonight that I simply have to purple pen. I knew that there was a time when Teresa Giudice was blaming her lawyers, ALL of her lawyers, shortly after her conviction on WWHL. You can read the recaps of those interviews here. Be sure to read both parts of the two part fiasco. I never in a million years thought she would actually sue them from behind bars! Isn’t she bankrupt? How is she affording a malpractice attorney? I must say that the one she hired doesn’t seem to be a legal mastermind. Then again, check out the other attorney she is using these days, he is also her publicist. It’s astonishing.
According to People, “In a statement to PEOPLE, her malpractice lawyer, Carlos Cuevas, says that her former bankruptcy attorney James Kridel’s “legal malpractice is the reason why she is incarcerated.”
Um, seriously? I want to see the guy say that with a straight face in a sit down interview with the media. Please make this happen.
On July 28, Cuevas filed a 53-page complaint in Morris County, New Jersey, Superior Court, alleging three causes of action against Kridel: legal malpractice, breach of contract and breach of fiduciary duty.
He filed the lawsuit on Giudice’s behalf “to vindicate [her] legal rights, her good name and reputation,” he says in the complaint. Giudice is seeking to recover an unspecified amount of money from Kridel “because she has suffered significant monetary damages because of Defendant Kridel’s negligence,” Cuevas says in the complaint. But, he continues, any damages she recovers from Kridel “cannot restore her freedom, her good name, her lost professional opportunities, or her agonizing, extended absence from her husband and children’s daily lives.”
Her good name and reputation? Um, okay. That’s going to be a hard thing to prove. Kridel’s negligence? Again, how is this the bankruptcy lawyer’s fault? Continue reading
They showed some pictures of Lauren Manzo’s wedding which looked lovely. Melissa was there and said everyone looked amazing. Andy asked why Caroline wore white to the wedding. Lauren asked her mom to wear white. The other housewives at the wedding were Jaqueline, Kathy and Dina. Dina was at the church but not at the reception. Who go the drunkest of the housewives. Melissa say she a Rosie drank their fair share. Joe Gorga wore plaid pants.
Andy showed a montage comparing season one Countess with this season’s Luann. Night and day.
Melissa says Tre is doing as well as can be expected. She’s really strong and good at keeping it positive when she is on the phone with the girls. The girls play with her kids a lot. She has requested to visit Tre but she has not been approved yet. She thinks it is a prison redtape issue and not coming from Tre. Andy says she thinks it is Tre and Melissa says something like she was trying to be diplomatic. Joe has been to see her. Continue reading
What the fuck is going on with TMZ lately? I’d blame it on a slow news summer but it seems way more like they are being paid to publicize stories. Kendall and Kylie get nipple piercings? Do you really want to run so many stories on two kids, one of which last I heard was under 18 and their nipples? And conveniently it is during filming for that show?
Anyway, the latest allegedly paid promo is for the Juicy Show on Bravo. The big news they are reporting is it is now a “two part special.” So has it been expanded to two hours, because I hear it is a one hour special. Whatever. Great! Can’t wait to watch!
But here is their whole story… Continue reading
