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
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
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
Well, we knew this was going to happen. Just in time for Bravo’s Sunday night problem, they have finally hammered out the details for a one hour special with Stay at Home Dad, Joe Giudice and his four daughters. Supposedly, there is something in the contract for the possibility of more shows. Um, Bravo. How stupid are you really? The possibility of more shows? Like if it pulls in more ratings than reruns of Secrets & Wives? Seriously? MAKE ALL THE EPISODES YOU CAN! MAKE EPISODES TO AIR UNTIL THE JAILBIRD WIFE GETS OUT OF PRISON. Are you out of your mind? This is ratings gold. We will ALL tune in. I get thinking that Joe might suck at this. But really, no matter what he does, we will watch.
Filming began earlier this month. If they are smart they will get this up on Sunday nights ASAP. Continue reading
Andy Squared, as I call the duo of Andy Cohen and Anderson Cooper, blessed us in Atlanta with a “performance” at the Cobb Energy Center last night. Tickets were $75 for the nose bleeds. And seriously, you could get a nose bleed. Cobb Energy Center is beautiful and the seats are very vertical after a certain point. I went to an Opera once there an was given a free ticket from a gentleman whose date did not arrive. It was on the first row of the balcony and it was super high up! I am not particularly afraid of heights but I am tall and the wall to keep us from falling over was just around my knees. It wasn’t very reassuring to me, while excusing myself past 50 people to get to the center. The seats down front for hard core housewives fans were $350 dollars and you got to meet Andy and suck his dick, or take a picture or something. I know, I know, some of you guys would pay that for the former option, but frankly it’s little steep to watch two guys chatting arrogantly about themselves on a stage. That said the did sell over 2000 seats in the joint that holds almost 2800.
So needless to say, I didn’t go.
And neither the folks at LaLate I assume, but they have spoken to someone who was there. I was wondering what Andy would do with the Teresa question. LaLate is exclusively reporting that “Cohen said that Teresa’s lawyer told Andy that Teresa wants to return to RHONJ and that a written (deal memo) confirmation from Teresa Giudice via her lawyer is pending within days.” Continue reading
