I Hate Jill Zarin And Teresa Giudice Too! October 2, 2010

First let me make a correction from my opening on yesterday’s blog, Stacie Turner did mention that her mother had sent her photos of her father in an earlier episode of The Real Housewives of DC and I missed it. Thank you HD for pointing that out. I wish Stacie the very best in finding her birth father. I don’t think her mother would have sent her photos if she was that adamant about keeping the two apart. She certainly has given Stacie some pretty good clues, a name would have been nice but she’s off to a good start. I do hope that Bravo lets us see a resolution to this story.

Yesterday Teresa Giudice in her infinite wisdom Tweeted this:

@Teresa_Giudice: @Oprah How bout you cancel the Oksana interview & address bullying & the SHOCKING # of CHILD suicides! @TWLOHA @trevorproject @perezhilton

@Teresa_Giudice: It’s your last season @Oprah We want stories that matter, like CHILDHOOD CANCER, not mistresses!

Teresa Giudice, table flipping scum of the earth, angry with the world garbage, who doesn’t have a charitable bone in her body is going to tell Ms. Oprah Winfrey what to put on her show? This low life, nasty piece of dirt actually has the audacity to try to influence the content of the number one rated talk show on television. To insinuate that Oprah doesn’t do shows to further the greater good is insulting to Oprah and to her audience. An interview with Tiger’s ex wife doesn’t wipe out all of the good that Oprah has done by any stretch of the imagination!

Teresa, how about you go back to flipping tables, screaming at your children, using vulgar language in your cleansy house and leave the real television to the professionals? When has this horrible woman ever done anything on her show to further these causes?
Teresa held plenty of parties, spent thousands of dollars to impress the neighbors and the viewing audience. Yet Danielle Staub is the one who turned her daughter’s birthday party into a charity event, Teresa hasn’t even been seen attending a charity event on television!

I could write an entire blog on the charitable activities of Oprah Winfrey, yet this trash talking classless New Jersey Housewife is going to try to bully Oprah for hosting Tiger Wood’s ex-wife? Oprah has done hundreds of shows to try to better this country, to try to bring to light terrible tragedies that have gone on in this world.

Maybe this subject of cheating hit a nerve with Teresa Giudice, maybe she doesn’t want to hear what the Ex- Mrs. Tiger Woods has to say because it will force Teresa to face her own feelings of being the wife who was wronged?

Whatever the reason, Teresa Giudice needs to shut the hell up and go back to making pizza with her frozen dough, putting ugly crap in her kids hair and flip a few tables! You are not worthy to speak Oprah’s name, or even watch her show! Your 15 minutes are ticking away Giudice, your sister in law and your cousin are dogging you, time to slap Andy Cohen or something so that people will talk about you! I Hate Teresa Giudice!

Speaking of Danielle Staub, she’s not been tweeting since September 24, until yesterday, one tweet, just a few words…

@DanielleStaub: stay positive ……all else will follow. DS

Thanks for those words of wisdom Danielle, now I can sleep at night.

Kelly’s at it again, you can see her entire library of You-Tube video’s if you’re ever bored enough to want to watch them, the latest must have been inspired from Bethenny Getting Married and seeing Bethenny’s baby Bryn’s room come together:

I uploaded a YouTube video — how to remake a tween room http://youtu.be/Fw-xtxZqEKw?a

It is easy to predict what Kelly will do next, just watch what Bethenny is doing today…

@JillZarin: Didn’t see the Tina Fay bit yet. Did she flatter or insult me? No matter which..gotta love that she even knows me. I die for her.


Jill Zarin, please watch the Tina Fey bit! I wish I could see Jill’s face when Tina chooses being Renewed by Ramona over having Jill Zarin decorate her apartment. Add to that the video of Jill being a horrible to Bethenny on the phone is cut in with a Tina Fey clip, once again reminding us of Jill’s mean and vicious treatment of her “friend”. The very best has to be the bit during the after-show on Bravotv.com when Tina is asked who she would be friends with if she were on the Real Housewives of NY and she chooses Alex!


Jill apparently things that she is free to quote Rachel Zoe with her “I die for her” nonsense!

Speaking of Rachel Zoe, rumor has it that she’s three months pregnant with her first child. Congratulations Rachel and Rodger!!!

And speaking of Alex McCord, yesterday was her birthday so on behalf of IHJZ, Happy Birthday Alex! Simon was having some fun on Twitter today planning Alex’s birthday surprise. “You ruined the fu&*(%$ Surprise!”

@SimonvanKempen: doing reconnaissance for the big birthday party 2m. If you see me pls don’t tweet location!
@McCordAlex: @SimonvanKempen My beautiful love, I hope that every birthday I celebrate has you by my side. xoxoxoxox

Can I get a great big…AWWWWWWW!!!

Alex’s blog on The Real Housewives of DC is available, here is Alex’s tweeted announcement:

@McCordAlex: Here’s my latest DC blog for @peoplemag – http://bit.ly/DCPeople8

Alex also tweeted this to Ramona Singer’s daughter yesterday:

@McCordAlex: @averysinger had a blast today, and your room is awesome! Xo

Lots of discussion regarding Andy Cohen and his latest obsession, Bishop Eddie Long and his “Mazel” that he sent out during Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night. Many thought it was a mistake and Andy meant to give him the “Jackhole” of the week instead of the Mazel, rest assured it was no mistake. Andy Cohen has turned this whole thing into a joke, he is mocking the man because of Bishop Long’s anti-gay stance and the irony of him now being accused of molesting young boys.

I don’t find any of this funny and incidentally Andy Cohen has, in the same week, released a video of his own experiences being a young gay boy. His pain and sharing how he felt with his encouraging words to boys in his very same position was a nice thing to do but completely negated by his jokes about a man who is accused of molesting young boys and abusing his wife.

If a straight man made this same types of jokes about Eddie Long, Cohen would be the first to make him Jackhole of the week and call him out on his inappropriate jokes. None of this is funny Andy Cohen, and you owe an apology to the victims of Bishop Eddie Long.


RealOldHousewife is reporting that her source says that Kim Granatell has been signed on to be one of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. Her outrageous behavior and her part time appearances must have been enough for Bravo to decide she’s perfect for this tacky version of their Real Housewives series. I must say they’re right! If there is anyone who is perfect for the worst housewives series on television, it is Kim Granatell!

If all of these rumors are true, the fact that Bravo doesn’t want Dina because she cannot/will not bring her family on board and all these new relatives of Teresa’s will appear along with dirty old lady, Kim G, I’m all over this season! Bring it on Bravo!

This should put the nail in the coffin for Teresa Giudice, first her sister in law, then her cousin, now her nemesis, Kim Granatell.

Anything that makes Teresa squirm is ok with me! Read the story here:

@RealOldHouswife: Guess Who’s Coming Back to RHONJ? http://bit.ly/bN9CdA

Keep reading down RealOldHousewives blog to read about (although the video has been pulled) Kim G’s racist rant while driving to an event. I refuse to type what this moron said, but you can read about it on ROH’s blog. I can only imagine that Bravo signed her before this happened.

The Real Housewives of DC are not very diligent in posting their blogs but we do have two posted regarding this past week’s episode, Michaele says absolutely nothing in her short blog. Cat, in Cat fashion tells it like it is and talks about all of the housewives and how she feels about them. I think after going on a roller coaster ride with Cat Ommanney, I have come down on the positive side with her. I do like her after all.

There is a new blog posted by Lynda but as it was dated Thursday prior to the episode airing, it reflects her feelings on last week’s episode (sigh) but she does provide excellent insight into the “brawl” between Cat and Erika at Stacie’s Ice Cream Party. Those three blogs are available here:


Dina Manzo is now officially the Jill Zarin of Jersey! She doesn’t know when to shut up and get off of Twitter. With rumors continuing to swirl of her husband’s infidelity and even “Tommy is gay” buzzes, many people, including Real City Housewife and I predicted that Claudine (Dina) Manzo would soon post a photo of herself with her husband lovingly cooing at each other. As if she read our minds…..

@DinaManzo: Awww my hubby… http://plixi.com/p/48044696

Just a day later, Dina tweeted this:

@DinaManzo: Want to post the video of the celebration but it features my husbands bald spot up close. He might kill me. Trust me it was beautiful.

But Dina doesn’t have a book on Amazon, so creating a fake name to write a review wouldn’t make sense for Dina, instead she creates Twitter accounts. We all know she can get nasty right out in the open on her own @DinaManzo moniker, and that she gets really vulgar using her cat’s name @GrandmaWrinkles. Now Dina has apparently started another account, @janislanton. Using this new name, Dina can log on and attack with a fake name hiding behind someone named Janis.

There is a new FUN Twitter account by the name of @TommyManzo_ don’t miss the hilarious tweets if you’re on twitter, people are having a lot of fun with it. (probably not Dina though) If you’re not on Twitter, I’m happy to bring you some gems from this parody account:

TommyManzo_ Dina–funny that you tried to hit on me here on twitter under the name janislanton–once a douchebag always a douchebag
TommyManzo_ Dina……when I look into your eyes, I see the back of your head.
TommyManzo_ don’t bother kissing Dina’s ass, she already thinks you’re an asshole
TO: @TommyManzo_ @Geoaubsmom Your back, I just checked my car trunk because I was worried!
TO: @TommyManzo_ Come on, say it. Her cooch looks like grandma wrinkles.
TommyManzo_ grandma wrinkles smells better
TommyManzo_ Dina fakes everything…. including her honesty about charities
TommyManzo_ nope bald….her ass is hairy thou
TommyManzo_ You’ll have to donate $100. for that to happen. Make the check out to Dina’s Closet Fund. Thanks.
TommyManzo_ Dina’s finally sleeping. I can sneak in a bubble bath, gonna use her ladybug sponge to wash my pits & ass.

Yes, believe it or not after reading these tweets people still tweeted to me asking if it was the real Tommy Manzo! Yikes!

I never thought I’d see the day but Bethenny Frankel has created a Twitter account for her dog Cookie, and it has been confirmed by Bethenny to be legitimate! @cookiedabooboo is the only legitimate account of Bethenny’s dog. There are several imitations out there that are actually very funny, but this is the real deal.

Cookie: Found nice sunny spot. Will be right here when you get home.
Cookie: Half the time I don’t know whether I’m nervous or just cold.
Cookie: **YAWN** Another nap completed. If you’re descended from apes, I must be descended from sloths!
Cookie: It’s not a lazy nap if you call it a “siesta”.
Cookie: For what I’m about 2 eat I am truly thankful…
Cookie: Too tired. Can’t. Lift. Whiskers. Send help.
Cookie: If you forget about me during the day, just sniff your shoe and you’ll get a little reminder I left you. ; )
Cookie: Just saved you from eating box of cookies left on counter. You can thank me later.
Cookie: Not loving the rainy weather– I just got my fur done!
Cookie: Try thinking of my amazing hyperactivity as simply my individual effort to fight canine obesity.
Cookie: That delivery uniform doesn’t fool me! You’re the devil!
Cookie: Let’s try and treat those trashcans with a little more respect, shall we!
Cookie: Gotta remember: refrigerator magnets are decorations, not food.

Caroline Manzo has practically stopped tweeting altogether but she does Retweet other people’s messages, she’s retweeted over 15 times in the past 24 hour with nothing original of her own.

A Public Service Announcement, anyone in the New Jersey area interested in working for Albert Manzo and Tommy Manzo, Caroline is apparently helping out with HR duties:

@CarolineManzo: thebrownstonenj FYI Now hiring Servers, and Bridal attendants, interested parties should email Al Manzo at albert@thebrownstone.com

I wrote a guest blog about Twitter, you can view it here: http://spoiledeggs.wordpress.com/

  1. tweeterlaura says:

    Am so looking forward to the new Real Housewives Franchise – Beverly Hills – I need a break from the fraudy Jersey Girls always hawking something.

  2. Melinda says:

    we all know that Jill Zarin has seen Tina Fey’s “bit” on WWHL……the fact that she tweets that she “hasn’t” seen it is really code for, “I have seen it and I can’t comment for fear the great and powerful Tina Fey will smite me!!”

    she is so full of crap we can smell her from here!!

  3. Trudie says:

    Oksana isn’t Tiger’s ex-wife.

  4. BKAamia009 says:

    love ya lynn but Oksana is Mel’s soon to be ex wife and Elin is Tiger’s Ex wife

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Sorry, my mistake, I really wasn’t paying attention to WHO Teresa was talking about, just that she had the nerve to talk to Oprah like that!

      • TrueLifeDiva says:

        Just because Teresa hopes Oprah will listen to hear, doesn’t mean it will happen 😉
        Shoot, I can twitter a request for a million dollars…. we all know that ain’t happening either!

    • Adgirl says:

      Oksana and Mel Gibson’t didn’t marry but do have a child together. TMZ hilariously released today that while demanding more child support or alimony from Timothy Dalton she also alledged abuse.

      I am NOT denying that she was hit by or abused by Mel Gibson.

      I have noticed:
      1. She has only beome pregnant by wealthy actors.
      2. She likes hot heads or creates hot heads.
      3. Men are (sometimes) idiots.

    • sophie says:

      I thought Oksana was the woman Mel Gibson supposedly left his wife for….got her pregnant but didn’t marry her. To my knowledge, Mel is not married to this woman. She’s just a woman he had an affair with…and I bet his wife Robin found out about it and left HIM, not the other way around

  5. BKAamia009 says:

    i wish i lived in Jersey so I could go undercover & work as a server there oooh I’d be a BAD girl!

    • boston02127 says:

      @BKAamia009–If I lived in NJ, I’d suck it up and befriend Danielle (I’m sure that would require some type of shots) and I’d find out everything about everyone. Then I’d spill the beans.

      • TEB says:

        Boston- I would too.
        “Not that there’s anything wrong with that….” 🙂

      • cusi77 says:

        Boston & TEB_ Lol!

      • BKAamia009 says:

        Danielle? We all already no her news. It’s the Manzo’s that need to be exposed for what they really are. They use intimidation for cooperation, Dina’s lifestyle is supported by her charity, what bigots they really are. I dont care about Danielle hell they talked about her rolled her in the mud, went out of their way to get the dirt out. Just read Jac’s obsessed blogs.

  6. I finally got to the end of the other blog… just to find a link to this blog. Lynn, I can’t keep up!
    I love Dina. She is soooo much fun!! I hope she never gets a clue and keeps on tweeting craziness and freaking out. There are also some very passionate DinaFans out there who are equally as funny. Everyone needs to get on twitter, it’s a great time.
    And @TommyManzo_ is fucking hilarious.

    I don’t even know why DC is getting a second season. They should just film Jersey year round.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      you know I went over to the twitter picture of Dina and Tommy together and just could not believe the fawning tripe that people wrote about her.

      People or Sheeple? I ask myself that everyday.

      • I know!

        I can’t believe my comment is still up… she must not be able to delete it because I’m sure she would have by now.
        I’m going to go comment again with the link to my blog comment where I predicted she would post her pic. Lol.

      • nathania says:

        I read Michaele Salahis blog on Bravo the other day and I couldn’t believe that there are still people out there who don’t think she’s nuts but she had a handful of comments, only one negative, the rest full of fawning tripe as well.

  7. Hey where did my comment go? Spam again?

    Why does your blog hate me Lynn? I love it so much…. 😦

  8. lillybee says:

    She is Mel Gibson’s baby momma. Gag, I know too much about this crap.

  9. Ali's Mom says:

    Oksana was never Mel’s wife. He is still married to Robin but sounds like that divorce will be over soon. I don’t believe that Tiger’s ex-wife is allowed to talk about their marriage or divorce any longer due to the divorce settlement.

  10. AZ Girl says:

    Thanks for the blog!!! So glad Lynn that you are getting to like Cat. I have from the beginning. I think she is really sharp!

  11. HD says:

    I can’t believe that Teresa opened her mouth to say one thing about Oprah. Teresa-a broke nobody. Oprah-a billionaire media mogul. Please just shut up, Teresa.

    Why would Bethanny make a Twitter for her dog? I think that is a little overboard.

  12. oopsy says:

    I posted this on the last site; I feel it is important enough to bring over here.
    oopsy says:
    October 2, 2010 at 5:08 pm
    Ok. I’ve tried to post this twice, never had a problem before. Third time is the charm? Imagine you are watching TV and Andy Cohen, on national tv mind you, Gives a positive shout out to the man who molested your child. (No. I don’t know anyone involved. ) Oh. My. Word! What the HELL was he thinking??! If this terrible, terrible thing happened when these people were young and innocent, so vulnerable, why the hell would Andy give him the mazel of the week? There are no words for how livid I would be if this happened to me or my child and Andy Cohen swayed public opinion about the man who molested my child. We are talking about MOLESTATION

    oopsy says:
    October 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm
    (Got cut off) we are talking about someone molesting children! I never cared about Andy one way or the other but now I HATE him. I try to live my life by putting myself in other people’s shoes and in this case I just can’t IMAGINE how I would feel if it were MY child and Andy says, ‘call me!’ and gives that person the mazel of the week. UNBELIEVABLE! Andy doesn’t know if Long did this terrible thing and he should keep his mouth SHUT!

    • oopsy—I’m pretty sure that we finally figured-out that it was supposed to be a joke. Like, the bishop was homo-phobic, yet he was molesting children and/or boys.Andy was trying to act like he was “outing” him in a back-handed compliment kind-of way?
      I think that back-fired on Andy ’cause nobody got the joke.

      • MickeyMouth says:

        I knew it was his idea of a joke from the minute he started tweeting, commenting on it in his blog, and making him is mazel of the week on WWHL. The problem is at no point was it funny. The jackhole of the week is Andy Cohen for being too dense to realize when to STFU.

      • oopsy says:

        Even so, I’m not sure which would be worse…Andy making a JOKE about something so awful? Out of respect for those poor people he should know it would be common sense to keep his mouth shut. I can’t even get my mind around him even commenting on it. He has no idea if Long did this and it isn’t fodder for WWH.

      • oopsy says:

        Thank housewifehater. I probably shouln’t have commented because I didn’t see it, I just read about what happened.

  13. So which one is Oprah having? From what I heard about Tiger’s ex, supposedly she took a big chunk of her divorce settlement money & started some kind of educational charity or something.
    I don’t get all the petitioning of Oprah anyhow-this is her farewell season-I’d have to think that she’s pretty booked-up?
    Speaking-of books, I also heard that she’s bringing-back the book club for this season, but I haven’t seen any of the titles yet.

  14. tuzentswurth says:

    Further proof that KKB is a moron and a nutjob. Go to an awesome store and literally get butterflies……Here’s a better idea Kelly, go to Columbia…..yes, the country. Don’t come back.

    • jezzibel says:

      Go to any gardening store buy a butterfly bush(which attracts LITERAL butterflies) plant it and the you would’nt have to go to a store for butterflies

  15. Wall St Lady says:

    I guess you’re phone doesn’t have spell-check, so a yes or no will do.

    By housewife hater on October 2, 2010 at 3:01

    This chick says I live in South Hampton s. Sorry its Hampton s or S H not SHs. Furthermore Hampton s r the beach. No one goes down grade to a NJ beach if u live in the Hampton s. Last I don’t know any one who commutes 2&1/2 hour to Manhattan from the Hampton s daily.

    Last $hit over whatever ,Lynn is a lady & attracts classy people. Ur moniker should b left in a bathroom in my very lady like opinion.

    • TEB says:

      WSL- totally agree. I thought the Hampton/Hamptons thing was a bit off (not to mention who the heck gets a beach house in NJ except Snooki and the Sitch)

      • Buffywood says:

        I do! And as some of the other posters in this vicinity can attest, Avalon is definitely not slumming it. That umpa-lumpa (sp?) Snookie wouldn’t make over the bridge.

        • TEB says:

          I’m sorry Buffywood! I was trying to be snarky. Please forgive- Umpa Lumpa is my only exposure to the Jersey Shore. I should not have made the mass assumption.

        • American Idiot says:

          I’m posting right now from our house at the Jersey Shore, Lavallette. We love it here, even though it is rather close to the town that Jersey is filmed in.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I play along- who knows who anyone is?
      I have a friend from a very wealthy family in NYC, who’s family has had a house on the beach in NJ for years. It was her grandparents, and everyone meets there once a summer. She acts like she’s “slumming” but still goes.
      So who knows?

      • Tootsie says:

        Grace Kelly’s parents had a huge home in Avalon, NJ. Not all of Jersey is awful. Cape May is also beautiful. Lately even Wildwood is sprucing up. It was the dreg of New Jersey several years ago.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Thank you…thank you…Thank you…..WSL

    • klmh says:

      So funny! She misspells words that are unrecognizable, can’t compose a complete sentence and uses the wrong punctuation and you say mention Hamptons and Hampton.
      She does mention she’s on a phone though-tiny tiny keys… no spell check either.

      Loved housewife haters comment as well though.

    • quincyil says:

      Very few things in those posts rang as true to me.

      I am upset that Teresa would instruct Chicago’s Oprah. She belongs to us and Teresa better keep her twitter off our Oprah. lol.

      • Sha2000 says:

        She belong to us ALL : ) (sorry!) Who doesn’t love Oprah?

        • Diana says:

          Me, to be honest.

          • justanothermary says:

            Sorry, but on the Diana train on this one. Don’t like Oprah.

            • Sha2000 says:

              Why? I’m curious. I no longer watch (no time) but I still admire her. She’s done a whole lot of good.

            • butterisafruit says:

              I can’t stand her. I wince when I see her. I think she has a big case of vainglory. Two weeks ago I was at a small house party and had to pretend to like her. Oprah started this season about best friends and one of her guests is a sister of a very good friend of mine. So when Oprah opened her show with them driving onto the set, we were all celebrating…..I bit my tongue and it killed me.

              • Diana says:

                Your first three sentences summarise my feelings exactly.

              • Waxdiva says:

                Hitching on the NOprah train. I didn’t like her and then I read the Kitty Kelley book and now I REALLY don’t like her. She is a product of affirmative action (sorry, but I don’t care for people who have gotten to where they are on an uneven playing field), has lied about her past and uses others to her own advantage. Just read the book for the details.

              • anniieee says:

                Me neither… hear she treats her staff nasty nasty – and comes across as a benevolent world savior. She lies, and thinks everything is about her.

        • colibrimoon says:

          @waxdiva, your claim that Oprah made it because she is an affirmative action product is complete and utter bullshit. Oprah entered into the talk show arena with close to 10 competitors and took great strides to not make her show a “black” show. Oprah owes her success to the world tuning into her show. I can’t stand when folks start talking that affirmative action shit and don’t know what they’re talking about.

          • Waxdiva says:

            to colibrimoon:
            YOU have no idea what you are talking about. If it weren’t for affirmative action, she would have no talk show. I guess you didn’t care enough to gather your facts before you made your erroneous statement. This is from Kitty Kelley’s book and she vetted each and every sentence in her book. This is what she had to say about affirmative action as it pertains to NOprah (there’s more, but this is enough):

            It was through affirmative action that she entered the media in an effort to become “the black Barbara Walters,” landing jobs at a Nashville radio station and then a Baltimore TV station, where she botched her gig as co-anchor of the nightly news but, Kelley reports, bedded the future star of “Entertainment Tonight,” John Tesh.

            NOprah owes her success to affirmative action.

          • Waxdiva says:

            I can’t stand people who mouth off before they’ve done a little research to back up their statements, and people who resort to name calling prove their low intelligence. They cannot form sentences, so they just throw in some name calling. The next time you think of writing something to me, you better have your facts in order, because believe me, I do.

            Here’s more:
            “Initially, Oprah’s success was the product of Affirmative Action and a WHITE audience. Don’t kid yourself, BLACKS didn’t ‘make’ Oprah. Now, gazillions of dollars later, her show has become nothing but a not too subtle political forum. Many of us are tired of hearing what Oprah thinks…her ratings prove that! The sun is starting to set on her little empire.”

            Again, NOprah is the result of affirmative action. Look it up!

  16. Wall St Lady says:

    I would do the “Happy Dance” if Ms Gorilla peeeeed off Oprah. Ms Ape thinks she is an opponent of Queen Oprah.
    Please Oprah figure out who Ape woman is & send her a banana to suck on !
    Then ignore her publicly !

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO it is another case of Teresa Big Talk – remember “which guy on Dancing with the Stars should I pick?”…..now she thinks she can throw out relevent topics to Oprah and that Oprah will go “Teresa you are so right, I should be talking about suicides and cancer!”………Hey Teresa! Why don’t you do a lecture at The Learning Annex on Bankruptsy and how to spend other people’s money without a conscious?????

  17. finally but.... says:

    Its unfortunate that even though Teresa has her downfalls, she doesn’t run her twtiiter so the idot she has tweeting for her will make her 15 minutes be up in about 2. The stupidity of the jackass that thinks Teresa/her hired tweeter would have an influence on Oprah. P.s. all of her bullshit @britney @oprah and whatever else is a long stretch to have the real celebrities recognize her, probably a better chance of geting her bancruptcy approved.

  18. Wall St Lady says:

    The Jersey shore is pretty & fun. Its more like
    Myrtle Beach SC. I have been honored & delighted to b a guest there. The Hampton s focus on social parties & not much on the beach & is not very relaxed in general.

      WSL, if you ever find yourself in South Jersey let me know. I will take you and WSM for a nice cocktail cruise.

      With so many board posters in the SJ area we should have our little get together in Atlantic City. Then I can take the whole group out for a cocktail cruise!

    Ok no not to excuse Teresa, but she clearly does not twitter herself, write her blog or her book so you really can’t blame her for her “words’ because they are the words of her “hired help” who writes everything for her!!! Most of her tweets are pathetic attempts to keep up with everyone else.

  21. Buffywood says:

    Please Please Please don’t think all Jersey Shore beach towns are like what that group of low class umpa lumpa portrays. I have a house in Avalon in South Jersey and many on this board from Philly/South Jersey can attest; it is beautiful. It is a very small barrier island with probably less than 250 year round residents (in terms of # of houses). Our elementary school is k-8 and has a whopping 79 children enrolled. I used to live there year round but now I just live there in the summers.

      @Buffywood–I’d never think that. It’s like me living in Southie, people think it’s EXACTLY what they see in the movies.

      • TEB says:

        Sorry Buffywood (or anyone else) if I offended with my Jersey Shore comment!! Not intentional. I was trying to be snarky…

        • Buffywood says:

          Oh no offense at all my dear. Gov Christie should sue both The Jersey Shore and RHWNJ for defamation of character on behalf of the whole state!!

            Thanks! 🙂

          • Buffywood says:

            Opps.. my double post too probably makes it seem like I was being defensive… my first post up thread seemed to dissapeared into cyber space at first so I didn’t think it went through. I see someone else was having some pointing issues up tread too.

        • American Idiot says:

          No offense taken. I love the Jersey Shore, always have. Jersey shore, the show, is filmed in one specific area, but most, if not all of the Jersey shore, is nothing like the show.

      • Buffywood says:

        I love Boston! I will be there again next month. Last time I stayed at the new W on Stuart Street as the price as very good (and my company pays for it). Do you work downtown?

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          She almost IS downtown! I hope your visit to Boston in fun!

          • Buffywood says:

            I used to go there weekly for work as that is where my company is located. Now just once a month or so. It is one of my favorite places!!!

            • When I visited there, I was like, “WoW! they must not want anyone to know about this place. -I’ve seen the mansions in Rhode Island, all-over the East Coast really, and Avalon pretty much has all of them beat.
              They make Duke’s Estate, and the mansions of North Jersey, even the Freehold area where Nixon had his house look puny!-I think that Ed McMahon had a place there?

                did you visit Stone Harbor?

              • That’s exactly where I stayed, Stone Harbor, but Avalon was the “old money” area that I saw.-there’s no reply button?

          @Over the Rainbow….Girl you don’t have to prove yourself to anyone. The only thing I care about all the Real Housewives. Who you are, where you live, what you do and all of that is the least bit of my worries or concern. I just was concerned about the Real Housewife information. Don’t put your business out there like that. Just give us Housewives information and all the other stuff about beach houses and all that is irrelavant. Who cares.

          Now as to the information on the housewives, girl, the way you typed that was a hot mess but I am going to read through it again cause I love gawwwwwwwwwsip as Jill would say. It wasn’t grammar or any of that it was the fact I didn’t know what half that stuff meant or what it should mean. LOL! Oh well. My daughter has an Ipod and I watch her type on that thing like nobody’s business. When I try to type on it, I peck, peck, peck and the funny thing I type all day long but I can’t on an Ipod.

          So whatever…if you have gawwwwwwwwsip share it. We will do it like fish-eat the meat and spit out the bones.

            okay,sorry i’m new to the rules of blogging I will stick to the Housewives. One more in Boston the housewives themselves are responsible for parading on TV they can refuse to not do any shows, .

            They have big houses,cars endless shopping sprees ect but, are only known locally.

            Their goals are to get out their to the nation,and be known.

            Someone ask earlier who is Toni …Tony=Tommy, Claudine=Dina, Caroline=Cara or Caro, Albert=Albie or Alb ect I was just calling them by their names family,and friends know them by.

            And to the poster calling me Tweet Maxine ,I can assure I am 130% Siciliana. I am not this Tweet Maxine person.

    Dina’s body language is very telling. She has to put her arm around Tommy’s neck as he’s not the least bit interested in her.

    I have an observation. I noticed that Jeff Lewis talked about the bathroom being used for a baby. Carrie Lewis, his sister in law, was on guard with that. Later, at dinner, everyone at the table had red wine glasses, but Carrie had two water bottles. This is a girl who had her wedding in Napa and drank at the rehersal dinner. She appears a little larger than before too. A little like Bethenny trying to fit in regular clothes. I have a feeling Jeff may be an uncle fairly soon.

    Gate crasher Salahi’s polo club files bankruptcy
    By the Associated Press
    October 2, 2010

    HARRISONBURG, Va. – Alleged White House gate crasher Tareq Salahi’s polo club has filed for bankruptcy.

    The Northern Virginia Daily reports that America’s Polo Cup Inc. filed for Chapter 7 in U.S. Bankruptcy Court on Sept. 13.

    The petition says America’s Polo Cup grossed more than $400,000 in 2008 and 2009 but slightly more than $50,000 this year.

    It lists $67,000 in assets–all in the form of money owed to the company–and $329,850 in debts, including more than $304,000 for catering that is the subject of a civil lawsuit.

    A winery business owned by Salahi filed bankruptcy in 2009.

    Salahi and his wife, Michaele, made headlines last year when they allegedly crashed a White House state dinner. Michaele is a cast member on Bravo’s reality show “Real Housewives of D.C..”

  33. WindyCityWondering says:

    Just read the DC ladies blogs – those that were current that is. Glad Mary called Erika out for being a mean girl. Even better – Cat didn’t even mention the bitch’s name in her offering! Michaele is excited about dressing for their WH crashing. Poor Mary must be too relaxed to blog and Jason likely grounded Stacie from using the computer!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Lynda called Erika out – sorry I’m cocktailing (and no – not with Mary)!

      • quincyil says:

        If I was publically treated this way by Mary, Lynda, and Stacy who were my long term friends, they would never hear from me again. Her only mistake was calling someone she perceived to be mean, mean. Apparently, the rest of their relationship is the same as it has been for a decade. I think Erica has been thrown under the bus.

        Mary stated that she would not get into the middle of fights between friends. Yet, she wants everyone to gang up on Michaela over the Lolly attack. I’ve seen this before. Only my feelings are important. I think it’s called narcissism. Mary, the therapist isnt’ working. Perhaps, 7 years with one therapist is too long. Perhaps, you just pay her to go and bitch about your easy life. Rich people and their problems…. shesh.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Erica’s mistake was not getting the memo. After seeing rude and inappropriate behaviour and hearing countless stories of Cat’s actions, she thought she was talking for the “group”. Her “friends”. Wrong. They threw her ass under the bus, and defended the mean girl.

          • quincyil says:

            Amber, you are my new best friend. We should have coffee and discuss Cat. If we were in DC, I bet Erica would pay for our lunch. LOL.

          • nathania says:

            I have gone back and forth on this. It was really hard to watch Cat going on about how she would never ‘annihilate’ someone like that, yet the truth is this is at least the second time that she has gone down this road with Mary and Mary seems visibly uncomfortable each time, yet it doesn’t shut her up. I can see Erika feeling thrown under the bus, no doubt…and more importantly, I can see that Erika mistakenly assumed that Cat who dishes out this stuff far more than anyone else, would be able to take it. In my opinion that is an honest mistake she made, with someone who is so verbally aggressive, you don’t expect them to be such a complete wuss when confronted. When I was in my early twenties I worked with a woman who would lean over right in my face and talk to me in a patronizing voice about whatever conflict there was going on (I worked in a restaurant so there was a lot of conflict). One day I said “look if you want to have a conversation with me you need to back up about three feet.” Her face crumpled and she almost started to cry. She was completely speechless. I didn’t now how to react because she’d been so intent on violating my boundaries and I realized she had absolutely no awareness about her own behavior. There is no way Cat can be unaware but like others have said if she dishes it out, she ought to be able to take it.

Perhaps we can meet up at SFA for some Berry Mojito or cheesecake? 🙂 I said in the other post it’s up to all parties involve to come forward. I guess my biggest mistake was discussing what I know.?

      • OneMoreinBoston says:

        Well, you really haven’t discussed it. You’re making claims and allegations that you then either can’t or won’t substantiate.

        And then you want to get into a pissing contest with other posters that call you out on your incongruous statements.

        personally I’m neutral about you. You’ve brought in some interesting comments and theories, and there is a ring of veracity about some of what you’ve said. But it seems as though it’s the same ole same ole with the cast of RHONJ.

        Something is fishy, something is most certainly amiss- but no one will come out and say what it is… always just a little bit out of reach.

  35. Wall St Lady says:

    Let’s make a date 🙂

    • Buffywood says:

      Sounds like a plan. I will be up in your neck of the woods too in about two weeks. I Love NYC. As to not give away my employer I will be near 61st and 1st for 1/2 a day, 67th and Columbus for 1/2 a day, Exhale Spa on Central Park South for a massage (thanks to RueLaLa), then around the corner to Angelo’s (good casual local’s kinda place) for dinner.

  36. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Slightly off topic:

    Did you know there is a blog sorta like this devoted to the Mafia?

    It’s called Gangster Bulletin Board:

    these guys have a whole forum devoted to RHONJ. Their wives got them hooked on it and they debate who is actually in the Mafia or not.

    this quote was too much:
    “When Teresa told Joe the guys needed a check, and Joe just whipped out the bills, I thought the poor delivery guy would shit a brick. He gave a look like he suspected it as well.
    How much you want to bet that The Brownstone restaurant is paid for out of their daddy’s connections as well.
    I think Carmella Soprano would be jealous as hell of these women. haha.”


    I was having lunch in a restaurant in Paterson’s Little Italy when word came that Tiny had been killed. One of the owner’s daughters, visibly upset, said, “Who’s going to protect us now?” That’s the way they thought. I had met Tiny a couple of times but he wouldn’t know me by name. Word on the street was that he was connected but not a made guy and that he definitely was not into the violent side of things–more gambling and hookers. Of course if he stiffed the wrong person he was going to pay the price–especially in those days. “Tiny” was a misnomer BTW–he was well over 300 pounds and probably 5/5. He was an excellent dancer, however–several times I saw him dance with women at the Brownstone. He seemed to be a very happy guy and an entrepreneur. Besides the Brownstone he owned an up and coming restaurant called Da Tomasso’s that was ironically later featured in The Sopranos. You never saw a single grafitti mark on that restaurant although the rest of the neighborhood was covered with them.”

    And this rather disturbing post:
    Rosie said,
    on June 21st, 2010 at 1:24 pm
    “He was killed because he could not leave women and young girls alone. He tried to “phisical” with me in my highschool years on more than 1 occasion. The fact that he is dead and found inthe trunk of his car, hog tied, naked, and possibly with his “member” in his mouth is justice! I am 1 who would not allow him near me without others around because of this. But how many others did not!!!”

    • WoW—-I may have to steal this an make a perma-link on my NJ blog just to check-up on these guys. You really have to wonder when the wise-guys have their own MB. I can picture the FBI people in The Sopranos reading it in their offices.

    • cyotteeflower says:

      Great find OMIB! I’m off to check it out.And to look for ur photo to see how cute you are!
      WSL you look a tiny bit familiar and you are truly a beauty.
      I notice what over the rainbow said about Tiny is in agreement with some of what was revealed here.
      Hey Rainbow I see alot of what you say as ringing true.Any other small tidbits?Like how is it Joe’s mistress hasn’t been outed?And why does Joe get off so easily in court?

      • I took a quick look and then backed out of there real fast. They were talkin’ about my family! And I’m not even Italian. And yeah, I’m sure that forum is populated by mostly LE, (internet lingo for law enforcement)

        • cyotteeflower says:

          I couldn’t get pages to load.You found them talking about your family? That has to be weird and unsettling.Did you know you were important?Did you find out anything you didn’t know?

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          well- that’s actually how I know about it. Not family members of mine-but someone close to me…Not all law enforcement, some wannabe’s too

      • i_shited_over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold! says:

        cyoteeflower, I don’t why she has not come forward I guess it is because she is afraid of what her family would think of her being intimate with a man like Joey G. HE also keeps her bills paid, and gifts flowing,so perhaps she does not want to give it up?

        I guess I could understand since she is not from a wealthy family, a guy like Joey comes along,and she feels cared,and taken care of? Someone that I know sent some information over to Bravo,TMZ ect ,and other outlets when word got back to the families their Attorney’s dealt with the information he have swiftly!

        I stepped aside from it because my husband did not want us to be involve nor place his reputation on the line,so I baked off! And so did my friends.

        I couldn’t tell you why Joey got off but people have been trying to get them for years him and one of his partners who he drained their pockets from.

        As far as the auction they are wanting a private sale so, Joey G family,and his close friends can bid then gave back to him, the courts are aware of what they are planning and, is already ten steps ahead of them.

        I guess they would never learn they are not taking this seriously but the courts, Lawyers are . Part of me wanted a camera crew to be rolling when things go down, but in all honesty as a Mother I am sad it has to happen ,because they have kids too,but they should have not been thinking only about theirselves. They should have thought about those little girls.

        The only way then call pull off saving the house is if someone come forward to help pay off the debts, and the last I heard many have washed their hands with them because they have used every and, anyone they know.

        The most people are willing to do for them is to purchase the items then give back!

        And as far as I know the auction is still on, but people are spreading false dates to the public of as to when the items go up to grabs!

        • Waxdiva says:

          I paid $300 to participate in the auction. Heard the auction was called off. I called AJ Wilner (the auction house) and was told “the auction has been called off indefinitely.”

        • nathania says:

          Everything I have heard about the alleged mistress is that she is from a wealthy family. Which would come as a relief to Teresa I am sure. But that is all unsubstantiated gossip.

  37. TEB says:

    This may have been discussed:
    I’m curious. Usually, when a new Bravo show airs.. the blogs are what ‘pops up’ as new additons on the home page. Even when the DC girls post their blogs- you have to go to the specific page to view. It’s never on the homepage. Old blogs beat their blogs. Hmmm.

  39. American Idiot says:

    L ynn:

    I have read Teresa’s first twitter post, and I have a theory. I maintain this is just a theory or a thought.

    Here in New Jersey, there has been tons of media coverage of a recent suicide of a Rutgers University freshmen. This boy was bullied via secret video recordings of his private moments with another male.

    I have seen on TV yesterday, several PSA ‘s by Perez Hilton and Ellen De Generes (sp?) regarding this matter. They both call for more understanding of young gay people, and more resourses to help all young people deal with bullying.

    I think Teresa is jumping on this bandwagon and calling for Oprah to do a show about bullying. It seems like too much of a coincedence to me.

    Mind you, I in no way agree with Teresa. I am sure Oprah has done many show about bullying.

    • Buffywood says:

      That was the first thing I thought about too when I read her tweet here.

      • American Idiot says:

        ok, glad I’m not alone here. I remember you said in an earlier post you were from Jersey too. Just think it is Teresa trying to stay revelant.

        • Buffywood says:

          Yes, I saw upthread you are in Lavalette. I’ve never been there but I’ve been into the Barnegat Inlet and up the Forked River.

          • American Idiot says:

            I’ve been to “old barney” the lighthouse. Never been to Forked River, but heard it’s really nice.

            We mostly boat in the Barnegat Bay.

            • Buffywood says:

              I haven’t done much boating up that way so I am not too comfortable with all of your inlets and canals. We’ve done some trips with Marine Max out of either Ship Bottom or Brick but I can’t remember which. It’s a nice area up there. I worked at Marina’s from the age of 15 until after I was first married. I love boats!

    • nathania says:

      If they are doing a show about bullying then Teresa Giudice should be spotlighted since if there ever was a bully in the world, it is her. I suspect that her sister in law feels bullied by her, that is the feeling I get from what I have read about that dynamic.

      I have mixed emotions about Kim G. being on there but if I have to say, if Teresa is going to be on there then I would love for Kim G. to be as well because she is one of the few people I have ever seen stand up to Teresa. About the only enjoyable moment of that reunion was when Teresa started mouthing off to her and she said “don’t you start with me, because you are going to go down.” I wanted to stand up and cheer. If we have to suffer through Teresa’s insanity there should be someone equally insane and a whole lot richer to put her in her place.

      • Agreed. Teresa is a huge bully, and nothing but a bully. Oprah should invite her on the show, letting Teresa think it’s a show about the Housewives or whatever, then give her hell about her bullying, as well as her ridiculous financial irresponsibility.

  42. emily says:

    Last week, in the scene where Charles was rattling off his schedule for Cat, he mentioned that in between assignments to photograph Peter Jackson and Bill Clinton, he was flying to London for his brother’s wedding. It was thrown out so casually that it was easy to miss, but WTF? Why isn’t his own wife accompanying him to his brother’s wedding? Were they so estranged by that point that he wasn’t even keeping up the facade of a normal relationship? Does his family hate Cat to the point that she wasn’t welcome to attend? It’s not like she has a job that would keep her in Washington and the daughters are old enough to be left with a sitter, or heck, they could fly too and hang with dad while they were at the wedding (assuming the girls’ dad lives somewhere reasonably close to brother’s wedding).

    • quincyil says:

      That is correct and I saw that at the time as the reason Cat might be upset with the list. Why would a new wife go to welcome a sister in law into the family. Cat is the younger sister of one of Charle’s friends. He had a summer fling with her around 18 years ago. Since then, Cat was married and had twins. When the twins were very young, Cat had an affair with a married man who it seems remained married. She had multiple relationships after that by her own admission some were inappropriate.

      It seems that Cat claims she was an interior decorator, but there is no evidence of her having a company or having worked for a firm. The home in Chevy Chase looked great, but I don’t know if that was Cat’s work or not. A little overkill with the photos on the wall, but he is a photographer.

      I think the reason that Cat was not working when she first came over was the visa situation. She came over at the request of a company with one type of visa, then took the job with Bravo that required another type of visa. Bravo states that she is working legally and companies can help foreigners get specific visas for work here.

      I don’t know how she is going to fit into the Housewives in DC when she has no home in America, will she live out of a hotel like the Salahis? Anyone want to comp a few months at the 4 Seasons so Bravo can film Cat? She seems to have lost all of Charle’s friends in the process of divorce. She has Stacy, Lynda, and Mary. Lolly and Erica really don’t like Cat. So, we will see her on the phone with her loyal gay friends and the 3 women that talk to her. It’s going to be a short second season.

      The girls will be in England in bording school. Someone here said the dogs are probably in a compound waiting for clearance from British customes. I feel sorry for the kids and the dogs.

      Cat’s husband number one and his family are anxiously awaiting her tell all book on their lives. I think they have some stories to tell too.

      Oh, did I mention creditors? Apparently, Cat, in hard times, borrowed and shopped on credit. There’s no mention of any problems in the US, but some people in Spain seem to be complaining about money that Cat may owe them.

      I guess anyone can sell books even Jill Zarin. The Salihis have sold books when the ghost writer herself doesn’t believe some of their claims.

      Do I think Cat is honest and that she will tell her version of the truth? Absolutely. Just a warning. Don’t get in Cat’s way. She knows how to make other people look really bad. Look at husband number one, Charles and Erica. A few tears from Cat can really sway an audience. I have watched women manipulate like this many times in the real world and in the reality world. They only feelings that matter to Cat are Cat’s feelings. Ignore the child’s story about school, it’s time to pay attention to Cat. Hmmmm… maybe, the girls and the dogs are better off without Cat.

    nothing to talk about that you haven’t already known.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I think there must be a misunderstanding. Newer posters often confuse @boston02127 and me as the same poster. It rarely bothers me because we are usually in agreement.

      You are posting opinions and allegations that were not known before.

      You are not backing it up with anything, other than innuendo.

      You are getting defensive, and when I said “pissing contest” it means any argument that just goes back and forth between two individuals but never gets resolved.

      • But what do you know about Teresa? Ha ha—-just trying to lighten’ it up a bit. Again Rainbow S-thank-you for the interesting info. and no, I had not heard most of it ’till today.
        Speaking-of Teresa, here’s the thing. We, (the “lynn-Fam”-courtesy WSW), try to get the facts straight. For Months, we were under the impression that ALL of Teresa’s in-laws lived in her basement, and that they were her built-in “help”. We utilized that “fact” repeatedly-making fun of her every time that she claimed that she “does it all”-herself.
        Recently, we were corrected. It appears that her mom & dad do NOT live in her home.
        Just an example of why we like to keep our “facts” straight, not to even mention the mess that Maxine caused with all of her made-up BS lies.

        • American Idiot says:

          I remember the show when Teresa went into labor. Her mother could be seen in the background, helping out with the little girls. To me, it looked like she was in a nightgown. So I always assumed her mother and father lived with them.

          • quincyil says:

            My mom came around the time of the due date. You have to have someone in the house if labor starts quickly.

            I do think her mother and father live with them most of the time. They had to be taking care of the kids when Teresa is on the road and Joe is in prison.

    you are right nothing will get resolved it’s just my personality. I tend to go back and forth with any and everyone.

LOL@ Joey G comments he look clueless,but he’s not. When word got to Teresa that he was hooking up with viga venditori ambulanti as we say in Italian.

My brother used to bring his buddies in after school and I would use my tips to feed them Reese’s Sundaes and burgers! LOL. Never could figure out why they closed them all down, we were NEVER empty. ALWAYS a line at the carry out and busy inside as well. Best time ever. Still my favorite job ever had.

    I meant to add to the upper thread of the auction. It is still on, but they are spitefully giving wrong dates for the auction to throw the public off! Their Lawyer request a private sale the other team are seeking for a different judge to make sure the sale goes public. The original ruling was to go ahead with the auction,but they kept on delaying, the victims that were taking advantage of by Joey and Teresa are PISSED! ,and want justice to the full extent . They were in shock when they stalled the original auction

    and we are all hoping this current judge give the go ahead with a very public bidding or else get a new judge in. It’s a headache they’ve been dipping in others pockets for years it’s time they pay the price.

    Someone asked about Caroline sisters and brother in the other post. Yes their names are all C’s, only 5 of them are close with each other Claudine, Caro, Christ, Cookie, Camello, the others aren’t close with them.

    AS far as the B.stone goes hopefully some workers will come forward, many ask why no one is. It’s a different process behind the scenes that it is on camera.

      I left a previous post re the auction and it will not be taking place. How do I know? I called the auction house on Sept. 30.

      • nathania says:

        It makes sense that they are pulling strings because it’s inconceivable to me that they could have gone this far in the red without some help in high places. It’s really a shame that Teresa’s parents either elected or were not allowed to participate in this show, I think they would have been a humanizing edition to the family. Or Joe’s, I mean, whomever it is that helps them so much. I wonder how they feel about her claiming to do it all herself.

    I know all the boys ;
    “Wish they all could b California girls !”
    In 1976 my neighbor at my 1st apartment was a close friend of Jackie Astor. I think they grew up together. Anyway she was a few years older than me & living w/ an Egyptian man at least 10 years older named JC Swares. I thought it was VERY “dangerous” especially since she could have been my older sister. Anyway Jackie mad an art film called “Iron Man” & Jackie rented out a theater to preview it. I don’t remember the film at all. After the film the star came out to do his thing in person. Arnold Schwartzanager had a hair cut like Justin Beaver & a proportion like Heidi ? . The veins almost scared me. Oh I can’t forger the weenie bikini !
    U never know who is gonna make it big.
    I am sure there were after parties but I wasn’t invited. I can b grateful I was on the third row & got a good look !

    May I start off by saying I love your blog, thanks for all the hard work, There really was no Oct 3rd Auction for Teresa Giudice and her husband ever planned. I think that was a lie by Teresa and her camp, When our Tabloid read the bankruptcy petition and all the items associated with it, at the Pacer web site, the only thing about the auction was when it was set for Aug22 and than in a move from the trustee to make sure the creditors do not get stolen from even the more, he wanted to get there items appraised 1st, and that was granted by the court, and it seems that when that is done there will be a date set for a public auction still. On Sept 28 the Court ordered the Giudice’s to pay for that appraisal at a cost of $2,600.00 Teresa is spinning these lies along with the help of People Magazine.
    People magazine keeps her on the cover because her story is selling now but in reality in these interview’s it is her side only and you know how that goes.
    On Oct 7 she and her Husband must answer the US Justice Dept. complaint as to whether they hide assets. That will be a good read I am sure and the Pre trial is set for Dec 12 in Newark at the Bankruptcy court!

    The holidays are around the corner. I’m cooking this Thanksgiving & Christmas. First time and I’m already nervous. I’ve started a blog so we could share some recipes. I hope you guys are interested. You can click on my name and leave you’re favorite recipes. Thanks!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      What a great idea!!! Don’t be nervous, I was too but if you’re doing traditional Turkey dinner, it is a lot easier than you think it is. The trick is making sure everything is ready at the same time so it all stays hot to serve. Good luck!!!

      • boston02127 says:

        I didn’t want to admit it but I will. Last year I cooked a turkey and for some reason I thought the turkey sat on its legs in the pan. When I took the foil off the poor thing was just a bunch of bones with meat all around it! It was pretty gross.

        • justanothermary says:

          The first year I was married (25 yrs ago) I invited my parents, brother and sister-in-law to my home for Thanksgiving. My parents lived about 500 miles away at the time but agreed to make the trek on Amtrak and I was scared crapless. The house was clean, the good dishes were out and I sent the hubs to pick up the parents. When they walked in my mother had a turkey in her arms! She spent 10 hours on a train holding a turkey on her lap because she thought I wouldn’t know what to cook!

          • boston02127 says:

            @ justanothermary –Luckily the “sitting” turkey that I cooked wasn’t for Thanksgiving.
            I could have used a back up turkey that day thou. I made it thinking I’d impress my boyfriend. HA! We still laugh about that turkey.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          If you have a grill available, I highly recommend you do the turkey on the grill so you have the oven free for your sides!

          • Waxdiva says:

            Whole turkey on the grill was the best tasting turkey ever. If you’re going to do this, make sure you read directions beforehand! My very first turkey was years ago; had family over, etc… Ta-da! I present the turkey on a huge platter and it looked perfect, but there was no meat on it. After everyone left, I realized that I cooked it upside down; I think everyone was too polite to say anything.

            • Katie says:

              My grandmother cooked her turkey in the microwave. It was “cooked” on the inside but it was white on the outside. I will not be adding that recipe. Lol

              • lillybee says:

                My son-in-law makes a deep fried turkey. I am ashamed to admit it but it was the best turkey I ever had.

        • quincyil says:

          Ok, I gave two recipes that I use on Thanksgiving because I have Hindus and vegetarians clammering to appear at my Turkey festival every year. I have the traditional American favorites, but I throw in Middle Eastern rice dishes because it seems a large number of people on this planet like rice more than potatoes. I do make mashed potatoes with gravy, but I put potatoes on the bottom of a pan with butter and steam basmati rice with peeled lima beans and dill. That gets topped off with saffron which comes from my husband’s own saffron farm in Iran. He likes to come and make the saffron mixture and I let him, but I could do it a lot faster than him. LOL.

          Now… when my Italian son in law came… I added lasagna and antipasto to the mix. Hey..America is a melting pot… LOL.

    • quincyil says:

      I have a ton… I have the secret recipe for the pumkin entree at the Afghan resturant owned by President Karzai’s old brother. The name of the restaurant is Helmand and it’s in Boston. I have a spy there.

      It’s going to take some time, but I will contribute.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Quincy–I just went to the website of the resturant. The kaddo looks delicious.

        • quincyil says:

          LOL… a chef told me the secrets, he’s an Iranian cousin.
          That would be the perfect entre for vegetarian guests. I just love that dish.

          I bought a stone at one of the Avon, CT, stores that you can use for pizza or Iranian bread, naan.

          I practice the dishes that I am going to make for one of my dinner parties before the event. That way I can coordinate all of the dishes. You can make things the day before to cut down on work the day of the dinner too. I make my pies the night before and my table is set then too. Anything I can do to have less work on the holiday.

          Oh…Boston… make sure you have containers of some kind for the left overs. Walmart has plastic containers, I was them and have them ready long before Thanksgiving. I’m a list maker. I bet you are too.

          • nappykink says:

            Hey! I live in avon, Ct!!!!

            • quincyil says:

              My daughter lives on a hill… I got lost on that hill last spring… 4 hours in the rain and one lost cell phone later a nurse told me how to get to the bottom. So many dead end cul de sacs, by the way.. and all of the houses looked the same. I thought the rushing river sound was the highway…oops.

              • nappykink says:

                I think I know the hill. I live in a part of town that is older and the houses are not the same. But yes, on that hill they do. Is your daughter still here? Such a small world. No one has ever heard if Avon!

    • AZ Girl says:

      What a great idea. I always cook for the holidays. My dad was in charge of the turkey every year. He taught me how to cook a turkey when I was very young. Helped him every year. My mom tried but was not a good cook. Funny thing though she knew how to make fantastic gravy which is hard to do. I would happy to share my recipes with you.

    • butterisafruit says:


      I keep a cooking/knitting/do nothing blog. I have for a couple of years.
      This is the page that has creamed pearl onions. It will shine at your dinner.
      People will be commenting on your skills. It’s the best you’ll ever have. I
      guarantee it


      Look around you might see something else you may want to try.

      (The crostini’s are delicious, you can practice making those they’re so simple)

      • boston02127 says:

        @butterisafruit—Thank you!

      • boston02127 says:

        @butterisafruit—Do you crochet? My grandmother taught me how when I was about 12. I don’t do anything fancy thou, I have a hard time following the patterns. It’s easier if someone shows me. Last year I made an Irish flag blanket. I brought it to a pub about a month before St. Patrick’s Day and they raffled it off. I made over a thousand dollars.

        • butterisafruit says:

          I’m sorry I’m so late responding (company dropped in). I’m very impressed Boston, that must have been beautiful. And so much work. I wish I could have seen it. I do crochet but I haven’t done a nice project in years. I like knitting because I don’t have to look at the stitches. I can watch tv or read while I’m doing it. I give crocheters a lot of credit because the patterns are tricky. I do think it’s prettier than the simple knit. OH I WISH I saw your blanket, it’s keeping someone nice and warm.

      • Thanks!!! I adore cooking/knitting blogs. I belong to the cult of sock knitters! Ask me about my yarn stash….

        • butterisafruit says:

            me too.. although I must admit that I have not been faithful to my craft lately. But, I must get my ass in gear, I have to knit socks for everyone for the holidays.

      @ boston2127
      I am not a Cook! Or a chef!
      I hosted my first Thanksgiving last year – and we had just moved the prior week (I moved into my parents former house so I thought it would be nice for the family to get together here).
      Lynn is correct- it is probably the easiest meal to prepare and cook. Just stay focused on serving time.
      The single best thing I did was to write a schedule to start cooking the various foods;
      12:00 turkey in oven
      1:30 potatoes in water
      3:00 rolls in oven
      3:45 veggies steam

      I also laid out all the serving bowls and flatware so I wasn’t confused at the last minute.

      It went off without a hitch!

    • anniieee says:

      I love to cook… I will put up some recipes for you! And don’t be nervous–it will be wonderful because it’s all about family!!

    • klmh says:

      I bet this will be your favorite meal to cook because it means friends and family are around to help you eat all that good food. Until I lost so many in my family, it was the best of the holidays for me because I was cooking with love…
      My dear mother had a wonderful way of cooking a turkey. She stuffed it with a wonderful dressing, nothing that could spoil or ruin the recipe, use a bit of paprika and s/p on both inside and outside before stuffing. Butter it liberally both side and out. Then, here it comes, put it in a brown paper bag! I always used a 24 lb or so turkey, so it takes up most of the bag, but you can try to close it as best you can. Make a hole in the bottom and elevate the turkey just enough to allow the drippings to be gathered and baste it after its cooked for a few hours. Then as needed. 325 almost 15 min/lb.
      There are so many good thoughts and recipes here. Thanks for a great way to share with others.
      Enjoy your holiday and cooking experience.

    I’m kinda bored with Housewives talk, so I thought I would tell a story about a conversation I had yesterday with a 20-something woman that blew my mind.

    We were standing outside a Marshalls in my area that was about to open, and looking at the shoes through the window, in what was, I suppose, a very downscale Sex In The City moment. She was there with her Mom. Her Mom made a cell phone call, so this woman and I started chatting about how this store used to be a Filene’s Basement and then closed. She said she used to work there. I was talking about the demise of Filene’s and what a shame it was, since back in the day, I went to the original one in Boston and got incredible clothes I kept for 20 yrs., some from Bergdorf Goodman. I think I got my mom a sweater and Ferragamo shoes at “The Basement” as well.

    So she said she used to work at Filene’s on that site, and she said, “I don’t know why stores like that are closing. I guess people don’t have a problem paying full price anymore?” She was dead serious, and followed it up with, “I mean, I don’t have a problem with it.”

    This has got to be the product of our failing education system. Really, genius? People WANT to pay full price, and that’s why a discount store closed? (She said this as we’re standing in front of a new Marshalls about to open, and a DSW. Oh, and by the way, the three failed stores in that same shopping center that have been shuttered for a couple of years? They’re being replaced by a giant Walmart coming in). Yes, that must be the problem, with people getting foreclosed on and losing their jobs all over the place — people would like to pay full price for things, and that’s putting the discounters out of business.

    I wonder if Donald Trump asks to pay more than people are asking for reduced-price real estate he wants to buy, or if Bill Gates asks to pay more for the plain clothing he is known for wearing. In fact it is usually the people we think have the most money who ask for discounts. Sure, they may be paying $400 for shoes instead of $800, or they may get it for free in exchange for publicity, but they certainly aren’t asking to pay full-price for things. (The difference with Jill Zarin trying to do that is that the stores know they’re getting the short end of the bargain. But that doesn’t stop her, or other bigger celebs, from doing it).

    My head is still spinning from what that woman said. Anyway, I’m off to IKEA to return my $10 picture frame and see what I can find in the AS-IS department. 😉

    • jezzibel says:

      We were in Abilene last weekend and the book and music festival wrapped up early, so we decided to go kill some time at a Mall we had spotted from the highway, before going back to the camp site(having never been to Abilene before I had no idea of where to go and what to do).
      I did’nt enjoy it..all the clothes in the stores looked ridiculously cheap and over priced, the only redeeming quality the mall had was a book-a-million. I think I would have rather spent a hour or two wandering around a Goodwill hunting for a treasure at a bargin.
      It sad I can remember when I used to enjoy going to the mall to shop, window shop, wander around, check stuff out, but now I’d rather go anywhere to spend what little money I have then the mall.

    • Katie says:

      There are very few colleges that teach courses on personal finances and I am unaware of any jr. High/ high school programs. 

      That leaves parents/family/friends and the media to inform adolescents about finances. 

      The housewives are geared towards an older demographic, but many young adults view the excessive conspicuous consumption. There are also shows geared towards the teen/tween demographic that portray teens with endless access cash/credit. “My Super Sweet  16” is one example.

      I can understand how a young person’s perception of socioeconomics may be distorted. We live in an age where liars and fame whores who are uneducated, are reaping the rewards.

      A generation ago young people strived to be doctors and astronauts. The number one occupation desired by young adults is being famous. It is disturbing that is an occupation.


      • Sha2000 says:

        “I can understand how a young person’s perception of socioeconomics may be distorted. We live in an age where liars and fame whores who are uneducated, are reaping the rewards”

        WELL SAID!

        • Adgirl says:

          The scary thing to me are how many people in politics (I live in CA) don’t understand basic economic principles. Like, you need more individual tax payers (earners) to make the payments (pay taxes) that our state is commited to (programs, salaries, pensions).

          My husband is Chemical Engineer & MBA (Carnegie Mellon) and it makes him crazy to listen to green technology talk. Basically he says the fundemental problem with “renewable” energy is the quality generated (intensity) can’t offset the amount of energy & cost it takes to transport it.
          That’s why it hasn’t become feasible yet.
          It’s a science problem not a lack of desire by scientists or corporations.

          So, I guess that speaks to the lack of education here too.

          • JKW says:

            It isn’t only finances. Thank God for the cash registers that tell them how much change to give. Now I am no math whiz but I can figure out change and do basic math. You do not want to be in a store when their register goes down. I had one girl who couldn’t even figure out a simple problem on paper. I had to do it for her. I couldn’t believe it.

            • Adgirl says:

              HAHA. I know. I think in some situations technology has made us dumber. Remember when you went to the library and used reference books to create your own term papers?
              Now those books don’t exist and everyone relys on the “facts” published on Wikipedia of all things.

              • JKW says:

                It’s crazy isn’t it ? And the way they teach the math and reading…it’s no wonder they can’t do either. Pretty scary..I guess it’s good they have calculators and phones that do everything or they couldn’t survive. LOL how old do we sound ? That damn younger generation.

              • Katie says:

                There is not one professor who considers wikipedia a reputable source, nor New York mag a newspaper of record.

                Peer reviewed academic articles are still the standard. The only considerable difference is the accessibility.

            • Buffywood says:

              I remember my mom teaching me to make change as a kid! She always said the easiest way was to simply continue to count up as you take the change out until to make it to the dollar. I felt so grown up working the register.

      • TLM says:

        I actually think there are some colleges and even high schools that have started teaching personal finance in Home Ec. Funny how the name “Home Economics” always suggested working with numbers, yet it only consisted of cooking & sewing lessons in the past. Fortunately schools are stepping it up now, teaching kids things like unit pricing in the supermarket and how to balance a checkbook.

        The thing that gets me with this woman, though, is that you would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to know about the job losses and foreclosures that have been going on for over a year. This is not something that requires cover-to-cover reading of the Wall St. Journal or even one’s local paper.

        I’m kind of sorry this woman’s mom was on the cell phone. I would have liked to have seen her reaction to that statement. Who knows, maybe this is a family living on credit cards and from paycheck to paycheck, and the bubble just hasn’t burst yet.

        • quincyil says:

          My daughter had six pairs of Manolo Blahnik shoes in her closet. They are hand me downs and they were freed. The shoes came from her friend’s sisters in the Philipines. I’d have some if my darn feet were smaller too. We always shop on sale. Recently, there was a fantastic top that I could use for special occasions like being invited to our friend’s country club, and although it was 100 dollars, I bought it. It was the only one there and my mom said we’d never find that on sale because it was so nice. Plus… I lost a lot of weight… and.. this was my non food rewards for 10 months of exercise with a Jackie Warner diet. Sometimes, I go into my small walk in closet without a chandelier and put it on because I’m still in shock that I bought it. Oh… regular lock on the closet door too… bummer.

          • JKW says:

            Was her friends sister related to Imelda Marcos ? lol I just don’t think they know any better. If you want something you buy it…that’s what credit cards are for The thing that really makes me angry are the young people that save money to buy a house. While they are saving others are going out and buying houses they can’t afford. Some people should be helped with their mortgages (lost jobs, hosp bills ) …but sorry, if you bought and couldn’t afford it that’s your tough luck. There needs to be some responsibility taken. Yes, the banks gave out mortgages like candy. But you know your finances and if you can’t afford it then you lose it. Maybe it would teach them to stop living beyond their means. Sorry, I am so sick of everything being someone or somethings fault or an illness, and no one takes responsibility for anything.

            • quincyil says:

              LOL… She lives in the Phillipines and they are very wealthy. I think those shoes are manufactured in the Phillipines.

          HD- I am sincerely sorry if my post about Al Sharpton offended you. I never meant to be hurtful but in hindsight, I can see that it was sharply worded and I’m very sorry.

              Thanks, Lynn because I had no clue what Dawn was talking about. I do remember the comment now but I knew it wasn’t directed towards me. Oh well. Your heart is in the right place. Hopefully Had Enough will be back and you can apologize to her. Peace and Blessings!

    Hey all ! To the poster who worked at Friendly’s there’s still some open Montauk Hwy and over in Commack. To the person who spent $300.00 on the auction did you get your refund? If any notice the last thing I posted on here last nigt. I said we are all upset with this auction saga .we meaning I, my friends,and I. One of my friend and her husband wanted to invest with Teresa and, Joey they came to us for a loan.

    I talked my husband into giving my girl friend and her husband the loan to invest with them even though Pauly had reminded my friends,and I that Joey and Teresa have had dirty dealing in the past. I and everyone else gave them a benefit of a doubt.

    They not only hurt my girl friend and, her family they hurt mine as well,because we gave our friends the money,so they can invest in Joey,and Teresa real estate fake made up crapola!

    It is alot of things going on behind close doors. We are angry, we are hurt! I could understand if this was just a one time thing that happened but it wasn’t.

    they knew what they were doing and they all sat around lauging talking about it like it was not anything to them.

    As dumb as Teresa looks and act she’s not Oh I had no idea Joey did this Joey did that yada yada yada.

    While Joey went around to banks ect Teresa was on the phone sweet talking people into investing with them.

    The court system over there in NJ is a joke! If it was done here in NY. The Ny court system would have put them away so fast they wouldn’t have known what F them in the A$$.

    When word got out to the media about their shady dealings, she was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. She called her brother Joey G for help he refused and washed his hands with her because everyone is all fed up!

    When she went over to the Manzos crying that she’s gonna be put away in jail. Caro kept rubbing her back telling her that’s not gonna happen, you have kids, the judges not going to put you away ,because you have daughters you have to take care of

    When they ask you what you know and when just tell them you knew nothing.

    Jac knows what goes on over there affraid to say it is happening .,because she know if Christ leaves her there’s no where to go.

    All of them are a joke. I don’t know what made them in their right minds agree to be seen on national tv , Claudine was smart enough to leave before Marie,and Bev told the world she was busy slurping on J.B.L ,and every other married man with kids sausage.

      Jacq is just too hard to believe – she goes back and forth and then cries that she is not where she wants to be. Let’s recall the many times she gleefully shouts out about pistol whipping kidnapping whore Danielle – but she doesn’t want to testify against her. SHE needs to come to terms with what is expected of her by her FAMILY and shut up because that FAMILY has alot on her skanky little ass too.

    Jac told someone who she thought she could trust, the friend she told , word got back to my girl friend they confronted Caro and she lied and said Teresa never told her anything, nor ever came to her for advice.

    She went as far to say she haven’t heard of Joey and Teresa legal troubles.

    as I stated earlier Jac knows the truth she refuses to speak up of what she knew and when. When this all first started because she is afraid of them

        Gah! I still can’t figure out who Marie is.

        It just confirms my suspicions that Danielle has only told a fraction of what she knows, and that Dina got the hell off the show before she spilled more on her.

    Can any of the computer literate people help me out with something? Posts do not automatically update on my computer. I have to hit the refresh button to update the blog comments. Is that supposed to happen? Or is there some way to get the newest comments to automatically update? Thanks for the feedback!! Happy Sunday!

    • Sha2000 says:

      Don’t know sorry! Mine refresh after each post so I assume yours should too. I’m using Firefox…maybe it depends on the browser & is version?

      @TEB– Try doing a disk clean up and a disk defrag. Go to your Programs then to Accessoiries. Then to System Tools, you will see where you can click off disk defragmenter and disk clean up. That should help.

    T Marie she’s the wife of one of the man Claudine was going around with when she 1st heard they were going to do the housewife, she contacted Bravo they brushed her off and pass the message along to Claudine that Marie contacted them ect

    She said it was just some jealous woman who wanted to do the show that’s trying to get back at her.

    Claudine went boo ooing to Cookie and them they called over to Marie with their crapola that Claudine is hurt, she suffers from PTSD, bipolar crap so it’s not fair for you to do this to her.

    those were caro and cookie words to Marie so I guess because Claudine has mental issuses that gives her the right to sleep around with married men?

    that’s their excuses she has issuses.

    well am sure some of you have issuses but don’t use that to justify breaking up family homes

    their all pigs!
    incase your confused cookie is one of their older sister and Anthony real name camello is 1 of their brothers

    I didn’t watch this particular WWHL and as a general rule I tend to be ANTI-Andy Cohen, but I really think he’s being accused/judged unfairly this time. The man did NOT make a joke about child molesting. In fact Bishop Eddie Long has never been accused of molesting children. He is being accused of “coercing” some young men (all of whom were well past the age of consent in Georgia) of engaging in various sexual acts. To say he is a “child molester” and to accuse Andy Cohen of joking about “child molestation” is both inaccurate and unfair. Half the county is laughing about the fact that another anti-gay-marriage, openly homophobic “Christian” Leader” has apparently been exposed as a closeted gay man. Yet again! Andy Cohen, a gay man who has probably aware of the effects of virulent homophobia himself, should certainly be allowed to make a little joke about Bishop Eddie Long WITHOUT being accused of condoning, trivializing or laughing about “child molesting.” These are clearly two separate issues. As to whether Andy’s joke was funny or not, that’s another story…but I for one completely suport Andy’s right to joke about this outwardly homophobic mega-pastor and his gay-as-a-picnic-basket secret exploits. And for the record I do not support or condone child molesting.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Well said Smompy. I agree Andy often gets criticism that is a bit harsh in my opinion.

    • nathania says:

      This makes more sense than anything I have read. I didn’t know the facts and didn’t want to participate because I am not interested in googling to find out. but this blog is the only place I have ever seen accusations of molestation and children being involved in the Bishop Long scandal. Hitherto I had read that Bishop Long had made sexual advances at men who were of age. It short, it was of being a closet gay man who is publicly anti-gay that he was accused. When I read about children here, and since I did not see that part of the WWHL I just assumed there had been more developments. Nobody in their right mind would do what Andy was accused of doing here, I thought, and expect to keep their job.

    Hi , never enter any 1 of their mc mansions, the closest I’ve been is when I’d drive by to visit my mom,and other friends in the area. I’ve been to the Brown Stone couple of times.

    the women are not liked there…. people only put up with them,because the Manzo brothers are likeable and always talk to every and anyone ect esp Tommy/Toni sometimes Albie use to be friendly, but I guess Caro is up his hole too much which makes him grumpy!

    • American Idiot says:

      There are some questions upthread for you. Hope you can answer them.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:


      I like your new screen name more.

      ***So… Danielle/Beverly took up with Danny Provenzano. His great uncle Anthony Provenzano, used his position as Teamsters vice president to take union funds for his personal use and was named as a prime suspect in Jimmy Hoffa’s disappearance.

      ***Danny Provenzano pled guilty to Federal racketeering charges as an Associate and made man of the Genovese Mafia Family.

      ***”Tiny” Manzo was linked to the Gambino family. Manzo and another Gambino family worker, Peter A Campisi were rumored to have stolen money from a mob casino on Staten Island.

      ***I don’t think it’s a stretch to think that Danielle got info about the Manzo’s from Danny, even though they were affiliated with different mafia families.

      ***according to your postings yesterday you claim that Ashley told stories to friends at school that may or not be true that one of the Manzo brother’s molested her.

      ***Danielle became friends with Jacqueline, and lo and behold begins to drop Ashley off at school.

      ***If Ashley was telling these stories to friends at school, I don’t think it is a stretch that she would confide/or try to manipulate Danielle with stories of being the victim of molestation.

      ***So is this it? Is the big dark secret? If the molester was Tommy/Tony that certainly explains why Dina left the show. Also explains Caroline’s coldness and impatience with Ashley.

      Am I close?

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I always got the impression that Albie had a thing for Ashley…..which would likely drive Caroline up the wall! And it sounds like Ashley likes to party so who is to say she didn’t take advantage of Mama Manzo’s golden child.

        • quincyil says:

          I don’t know about any of this. Seems to be far fetched to me.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            Don’t follow the mob stuff – but I really think Albie has/had a thing for Ashley. Caroline would never approve to that relationship! So the puppet master starts calling Ashley “family” and poof she has a “boyfriend”……

      • Jeepers says:

        hey hey now,
        be carful what ya say about my boy, Danny, he is a
        friend of mine. I just spoke with him last week. He
        really is a nice guy, once you get to know him. He
        always calls me Annie…………………LOL…….Jeepers

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Remember a while ago, I posted that I had a work friend that got married and moved to Franklin Lakes?

      She had told me that she had met Dina at a party and Dina was very cold and wouldn’t speak to her. My friend is a very bubbly, happy, upbeat person, but she’s also a true blue New Yorker. If you don’t like her, she honestly doesn’t give a crap-she has a pretty thick skin.

      But it REALLY bothered her that way that Dina treated her. She said when she was introduced to Dina, she wouldn’t even look at her and basically walked away from her mid sentance. In other words snubbed her pretty bad. My friend is gorgeous, black hair , big green eyes, pale skin-killer body, too. So maybe that had something to do with it.

      Now her husband is friends with Tommy/Tony and he kept making excuses for Dina saying she’s been really sick, she’s not well, she’s not herself. Maybe this is what the husband was talking about? She’s sick in the head?

      PTSD can also come from spousal abuse, which I’ve always wondered a little bit about with Dina’s first marriage. Absolutely no reason why, but just sorta a funny feeling.

  82. over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold! says:

    Yes they read the blogs, all the popular ones. My friends and I posted over @ Bravo well at least we tried to post about them,and our comments never got posted. We then went back,and posted all positive things about them, and clap clap wah lah! The positive ones got posted.

    but to answer your question yes they all read the popular blogs,and make up alias names to post crap,and the PTSD big lip inflated 1 makes up fake tweets to pretend she’s bashing herself to get attention.

    To be honest I don’t know if they know it’s me posting on here since they are,so many people who knows about them ect but by some of the things I posted they will and already know it’s me!

    some one ask who is Bev she’s the so call nut job they dis like, even before Bev did the show everyone knew who she was and what she did, her kids father knew because enemies from her past always kept tabs on her and made it their goal to let everyone that knows her or of her about her past.

    when she be friended one of the Manzos friends they had their local law enforcement buddies dig into her past to confirm Bev is Danielle they knew about her before she did the show

    They weren’t upset at her because of her past they just didn’t like her because she be friended Jac and another friend of theirs, and Bev had information on all of them.

    They felt she was going to ”damage” their B stone,and their Lady Fraud establishments.

  83. WindyCityWondering says:

    Sounds like Franklin Lakes is a small town with a large gossip mill.

  84. emily says:


    This is a video and breakdown of the recent Access Hollywood interview with Michaele about her Redskin Cheerleader association. At first, she still claims it as fact. Eventually, the story becomes that she was representing them at a local Sports bar.

    I think Michaele and Tareq are birds of a feather who just happened to be lucky enough to meet. She seems to be the one with the most vivid lying imagination, creating a whole fantasy back story for herself. Tareq lies, but there seems to be some (very small) basis of fact in his exaggerated lies.

  85. Jeepers says:

    so sorry for the delay, the green grocer man was here.
    And hell yes, I did indeed have “contact” with some of
    them………LOL, some hell, I was very busy for a long
    long time after that……………………………………..Jeepers

  86. over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold! says:

    The poster asking about Danny P. I’d rather not touch on cosca,saldato,capodecina, or consigliere. ,Bev had already known about Tiny every one fron NJ to Catskills known about the Manzos.

    Maybe Dany told Bev some inside stuff that we didn’t know about? I couldn’t say.

    I can say that Jaq does not have a relationship with Ashley at least not a good 1 she pushes her to the side and looks out more for the sons she has with Christ. The Manzos does not like her either maybe they do love her, but don’t like her.

    you can love some1 but don’t like someone, I think they are cold with her,because she has a habit of going around talking things about the Manzos.

    I don’t know if she told Bev what she told her ”friends” at school but they have been talks around their community about what Ashley told people,and they became upset with her.

    She had some ”friends” that did shows about her,and was going to say things that Ashley would tell them ect but, Attorney’s were brought in,and all parties had to sign and agree to only reveal certain information about her.

    I feel sorry for her I guess she just want to be love and accepted by them? When she was little she wanted to live with her dad but he’s not the brightest tool in the box ,and was not very ”mature” to take care of her full time.

    I don’t know if it’s true about the things she told her friends,and she did say when she was @ the Bstone late one night helping with work some1 made a pass at her.

    again I don’t know what is true from what is not there’s a reason it’s called rumors but then again rumors have to start from some truth. we as humans we just had to it or substract from the rumors?

    I can’t answer for Claudine,but there could be many reasons she left.

    one…some 1 was going to come forward and out her on her affair

    her mental state, Tommy/toni fathering a child with someone else , the money that some locals gave to her lady fraud charity and, started to question where their money was going once the charity givers got tipped off .

    those could be the reason she left feeling ashame and embaress so she left?

    • American Idiot says:

      OK let me get this straight. Dina/ Claudine had an affair with someone whose initials are J.B.L. and whose wife’s name is Marie and Dina’s husband Tommy/Toni has a fathered a child with some other woman while he was married to Dina?

      Please let me know if I have this right.

    • Savannah111 says:

      Wow ladies a lot of very very interesting blogs today !!

      over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold, I have to say your information is very interesting, it seems like you have a lot of inside information on the NJ ladies..

      Can I ask you a question, are you or were you friends with any of them?

  87. WindyCityWondering says:

    Of all the franchises – NJ has the best skeletons in the closets stories! For the life of me I don’t understand why people who have so much to hide would put their business on national tv…..
    What I don’t get is why Teresa is so “family” and seems not to get along with her own family members or parent her own children!

  88. Adgirl says:

    All I have to say is Bravo really finds TRASH to put onto our TV!
    I didn’t watched NJ because frankly, the level of pettiness + dumbness + repetitive arguing = makes me feel stressed AND bored simultaneously.

    Now I am all for watching delusional narcissists make asses of themselves so … bring on the Salahi’s and ATL.

    • Raquel Papel says:

      adgirl, I feel stressed when I watch RHNJ too. The whole scene where Teresa chased Danielle in the country club made me so anxious. If anyone has PSTD its us the audience

      As for spa stuff, we will see how motivated I am. If I am feeling motivated I will probably take their Core Fushion class and then a massage. If feeling tired (which is most likely) I will do a massage and then a 30 minute facial.

      Is this the one you live near?

    the poster who just drove by Friendly’s and shop in Commack do you shop IGA or Pathmark? Whenever am over in Commack I like eating @ a nice Diner a little ways up from the White Castle.

    And yes where the NJ housewives live is a gossip mill.
    it’s always a he said,she said, my brother,uncle,sister,nana,mother,inlaws,girl at the salon,man at the meat packing, woman in the bagel shop said about this person and that person

    Rumors start from somehwere has to be some truth from rumors, people just don’t pull em from their peep holes.

    either or I want justice serve and I can’t wait when all their crap hits the fan. I’ll be over the moon by then instead of being stuck to this rainbow 🙂

    • Adgirl says:

      I have to say this off screen “information” is way more interesting than the show which is a complete bore.

    • American Idiot says:

      All right then, Rainbow. I have asked you the same question three different times, so I am going to assume there are some things you don’t feel comfortable answering.

      Thanks for the information. Keep us updated on all the goings on with the NJHW’s.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      agree that all rumors start from a nugget of truth and it sounds like there is nothing much to do but gossip there! so is there any truth to a feud between Teresa and her SIL Melissa? Is Melissa really going to be on the next season?

    • vilzvet says:

      I shop at Waldbaums alot actually, only Pathmark when I happen to be near there. IGA is out of my way but they do have good stuff. And I think I know which diner you are referring to!

  91. over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold! says:

    American Idiot I didn’t post the real individuals names whos in the saga with them.Marie, JBL is character names replacing the real identity of the parties involve.

    the question about Tommy/Toni it has been known he fathers a child with another woman and Claudine was very upset,stressed about it,because since she’s been with Tommy she’s been wanting to have a child with him and he refused! And had one with someone else.

    PTSD you can also suffer from it if you have been abused in the past ec., trauma, ect don’t know what caused her ”PTSD” but when her sister Cookie,and Caro called over to Marie house whinning they told her Claudine suffers from ,manic depression and is bipolar that’s why she does,and did what she did those were her sisters words to Marie.

    I don’t know if that’s true but if you were to meet,see her in person and enteract with her…her ”behavior” comes off as child like hardly any eye contact, jumpy, zoning off into space @ times very ditzy and don’t of a mind of her own.

    I am still dumb founded as to why she did the show or why Resa and Joey did it.

    Claudine never liked Teresa and were never friends when resa asked Claudine to be a Godmother for her child she really didn’t want to she caught her off guard and,since the cameras were rolling she felt she’s didn’t have a choice but to say yes!

    the poster asking if I know any NJ housewife my brothers have been friends with Resa brother for years and at 1 point I used to hang out with Resa Joey her husband Joey her brother ,and some other friends of us growing up

    I left NJ and moved to NY for good, I still go over to NJ since my parents is still out that way, and I am soooooooooooo grateful I made the move!

    • Goodday Rainbow!
      You have me a lil concerned and curious.
      One is where have you been the last 2 seasons(as in where you been all my life-lol) and two why are you not fearful of negative repercussions from this group identifing you?
      Maybe you are finially just so fed up you no longer give a crap?
      We had figured out that Teresa and Dina weren’t long time friends.
      Do you know if Chris L. is a good guy and what the state of his business is?

      • AZ Girl says:

        I am curious also about what would happen if the Manzo’s did find out it was you posting these accusations?

    • American Idiot says:

      I’ve been reading this blog since Lynn began over at the other site, and I never remember reading anything about Dina’s husband having a baby with someone else. Can anyone else confirm this is true.

    I’ve been dying, D-Y-I-N-G for someone who knows the NJ wives to post here.

  96. over-the-rainbow-to-find-the-pot-of-gold! says:

    fact Melissa and Resa never got along yes they have always dis like each other. Joey,and Teresa parents dis approved of Melissa, because she was a wild girl,all the Joey’s,Pauly’s,Veto,and Vinny’s around the area told Joey,and Teresa about as well as their parents what type of girl Melissa was.

    Joey G. Teresa brother use to date outside of his race that was a no no for the Gorga family, he didn’t picture Melissa being his future wife but by then he it was already late.

    she was pregnant.

    Mellisa sisters especially her sister(L.S)..who are very much like Caro and Cookie when it comes to bullying,and manipulating others insisted he married Melissa. The fued between Teresa and Melissa is very much real.

    she still have some bad girl bones in her body ,while nanny dot dot dot, is busy taking care of her kids, she’s busy out and about with Joey and their daily,and nighty party crew.

    Melissa sisters were the ones who pitched the idea for her to do the show they want in on the spot light too ,and want to air Teresa laundry out to dry on national tv.

    Their plans were/are to get on Bravo Melissa,and her sister to gang up on Teresa,and spill the beans, one of Melissa sister wants a slot for air time …the amount Kim G was given so, she can cause more drama for the show Melissa family hates Teresa more than Teresa hates them LOL.

    now if you’d excuse me I have to place a call to my Attorney to have him on standby come Monday morning because, someone have already thrown a pissy fit to my parents in NJ THAT I AM ON HERE POSTING CRAPOLA ABOUT THEM BOO HOO! Have a good Sunday evening all

        Just generally speaking, it wouldn’t be at all surprising if some of them do cruise the net to see what’s being said about them. And/or have things pointed out to them by others. Lynn & this blog are known on the WWW among RHW followers & RH “celebs.”

    Someone called over to my parents home to tell them I’ve been in ”blogs” talking about them.their pretending to give me a warning not going to happen . I would keep airing their crap out until a court system tells me other wise.

    the poster asking why I came forward now. Teresa and (R) have been shopping@ the same stores for years she ran into her few days ago and she didn’t have the nerve to acknowledge (R) the same woman her,and Joey stole from

    so I said screw it I’ll put evey last 1 of them on blast until a court system tell me other wise. If a judge or an attorney does not serve me with any legal paper work.

    I WILL BE POSTING ABOUT THEIR LITTLE DIRTY LIVES the poster who asked who is L.S she’s one of Melissa sisters her name is Lysa!

    • Katie says:

      I only mentioned it because you mentioned your lawyer. All I was implying is that legally they have little recourse.

    • Katie says:

      Typically “court systems”‘ do not stop people from spreading gossip. If the information was false, or you broke a confidentiality agreement, etc then you may receive a cease and desist letter.

      Personally, it seems odd that you would expose the alleged call to your parents on a blog. Obviously it implicates you.

      Other than trying to substantiate the validity your posts, I don’t understand the motivation to write that.

      But that is just my opinion and goodness knows I have been wrong before.

      @WSL–I’m leaning more towards Ashley. Because of this:

      “now if you’d excuse me I have to place a call to my Attorney to have him on standby come Monday morning because, someone have already thrown a pissy fit to my parents in NJ THAT I AM ON HERE POSTING CRAPOLA ABOUT THEM BOO HOO! Have a good Sunday evening all”

    Amazing Race & Sister Wives tonight.

  112. Hey guys…. I haven’t read all the comments (there isn’t enough time in the day) but I’ve skimmed.

    Is anyone believing this “Over The Rainbow” person?

    She hasn’t posted anything (as far as I can tell bc those comments were HARD to read) that isn’t already common knowledge. The only piece of “new” information was that Albert is bi sexual, but as much as I love Manzo dirt – I find that IMPOSSIBLE to believe.

    Rainbow – sorry, I’m not trying to be mean, but I just find it so annoying when someone claims to be an insider and then say a bunch of crazy stuff or things that everyone already knew. There are a lot of fake “insiders” out there and it’s getting old.
    Also, I don’t understand what you are saying about hiring a lawyer… if what you are saying is true then why would you be worried about hiring a lawyer?
    Either way, I doubt anyone will be suing you no matter what you say on here.

    • WSL and Boston – I just saw you posts above mine. Lol
      So I’m not the only one calling BS I see.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I asked a few questions…not sure what to make from it, I’m on the fence; but I get you, when I feel its BS I say it too. (see the last 2 blogs lol).

    • tuzentswurth says:

      Seems like a lot of hokey BS to me 😉

    • debbie says:

      I’m really cynical, but Rainbow did name other family members and nicknames, mentioned lawyer=ing up because the Manzo clan is notorious for getting their lawyers on people ready to spill. Rainbow also said her mother called her from Jersey to warn her that people know she’s been posting on this blog.
      Now someone apparently called her out on this , and named her up-thread a bit .
      Maybe this is so all so wacky, it is true? I don’t know..lot of thoughts in my head right know, but Ive probably read 1500 comments in the past hour.
      My brain is scrambled…maybe that’s why some of her comments ring true.

  113. Wall St Lady says:

    Isn’t Kelly from NJ ?
    Wouldn’t she just like to waste our time. Also any attention to Kelly, even if to a faux person,
    feeds her sad personality disorders.
    Talking trash about others was the only way to hide on this blog.

    Any Thoughts ?

    • Kelly is from Illinois.Plus this isn’t self serving enough to be Kelly.Not her particular brand of crazy.IMO

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Kelly Bensimon? She’s not from New Jersey. Do you mean another Kelly?

      I have no idea if Rainbow is playing us or not. It’s certainly possible, may also be possible that she’s not & is posting rumor, scuttlebutt. Or that she does know a few things and is also making stuff up & posting out of animus. The Gs & Manzo’s do have local folks who don’t much like them. The Gs especially are not popular amongh those they’ve burned in the past. It’s the internet. I take things with a boulder size grain of salt. 😉

      I do remember when you, WSL, started posting here a few folks called you out and were rude to you. In time that changed. Not everyone believed you right off the bat. Just sayin’.

      Given enough time, if people stick around, they tend to reveal themselves, one way or another.

      No from the Midwest. Part of her shtick is repetitively talking about driving a truck, eating meat and potatos, and being a non hobag “girl” with values.

    • quincyil says:

      Kelly Bensimon? She’s high functioning, but I think she has adult autism.

      1. Poor communication skills

      2. Social awkwardness

      3. Lack of intimacy

      4. Problem keeping time.

      5. Lack of emotional control.


      In my opinion, Kelly Bensimons has a clear case of Asperger’s Syndrome, Adult autism. She’s functioning, but it’s there.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Yes, potentially. Although a proxy could be used and changed, if the poster(s) took the effort to use one.

        Exactly. My money is on 2 separate email addresses with the same ip address.

    • Waxdiva says:

      She has all the players and supporting cast’s names and status correct (except for the statement about Tommy having a child), so I agree with you that there is some truth in her/his posts. I do think the writer is someone who has very strong ties with their parents and, therefore, is probably a young adult. Lauren and Ashley would both fit this description; however, Ashley would be more likely this writer. Ashley has displayed her need for attention on the RHONJ and these posts are another example of her attention-getting activity.

      Will someone puh-leeeeeze tell me about Tommy’s love child? Or, is ‘over-the-rainbow’ confusing Tommy with Juicy Joe?

      • Anyone who reads the blogs and has twitter could have written that post. There was no new information.
        And she messed up peoples names more than once. She knows the family, but can’t get their names right?

        Sorry but I think it’s total BS. I could have written a better “insider” post with more information than what she offered.

        • quincyil says:

          I have thought it was BS from the beginning. I tried to respect the rule of not slamming another poster so I just kept warning that I had doubts.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          But you’re a better writer and more imaginative than most. Your stuff reads better than the truth and is far more entertaining.

          As for names, I should know after all the repetition all their names. But I still can’t really remember T’s kids for example, little Gelato and whoever. LOL. OK, I don’t care to, really, that’s true. 😉

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Potentially plausible within the realm of human behavior. But yeah, I too am having a hard time picturing Albert as bi.

        But we can sometimes be surprised IRL by what people we thought we knew can be into or do, so who knows about folks we really don’t know at all?

        • justanothermary says:

          She was spewing some crapola (her word) about the creditors throwing out fake auction dates to get the G’s riled up. That’s where she lost credability with me. The actual auction site had the dates and I doubt they would post an auction based on hearsay. I call bs on all of her crap that we didn’t already know.

          • Need a Hobby says:

            Hi Just….I don’t recall Rainbow saying that but perhaps I missed it. I do recall her saying something about the bankruptcy proceedings were essentially f’ed up and the creditors were trying to change judges…which doesn’t ring true. But a lot of folks don’t understand bankruptcy proceedings, there can be postponements, and while the court/trustee do oversee liquidation of personal assets, my understanding is that it doesn’t necessarily have to be just via a public auction. A private sale is another option. The idea is to get the most money as possible.

            I know the Gs folks have spun to Rob Shuter the bogus claim that the auction was set up by the creditors as a publicity stunt. Rob’s an idiot if he thinks that’s how bankruptcy proceedings and the trustee works. And he’s of course too lazy to bother to check. He’s not a journo, just a conduit for spinners.

            The tabloid tv poster here said she believed the Gs made up the Oct 3 auction date, which also is a kinda whacked assertion, based on the record. It may not be in the court docs, but probably in the transcript and certainly the auction house had the Oct 3 date.

        • My own father was the biggest womanizer I have ever known.When I was in my 20’s I was leaving a huge gathering and realized I had a flat tire.I pulled over in the large parking lot and as I was sitting there my father drove by and got stopped in traffic.He had a man sitting by him with his arm around him and they were clearly together.Never would have believed it if I hadn’t seen it.Maybe the reason I can easily believe what others find far fetched is because of what I have witnessed.

  127. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Rainbow came here originally supporting Andy and his statements about the Bishop. Rainbow claimed to have known a girl molested by the Bishop.

    Then went on to make some…interesting insights about RHONJ including Ashley telling stories she had been molested by either Tommy or Albert. Running theme.

    What’s next? Rainbow is also Nigerian and has met Stacie’s father? And was also molested?

    If you take out all of the Lady of the Manor posturing, and Wall St. jivetalking…

    I HAVE read a comment on another blog that insinuated that Albert Sr. NOT Tommy was bisexual, a while back. So this is the second time I’ve seen it.

    My friend who lives in Franklin Lakes did confirm that Tommy had a second house across the street from the Brownstone. Putting a second family in there wouldn’t be a stretch-stranger things have happened.

    Dina is a freak- and I wouldn’t doubt affairs and shady business practices with PL.

    • nathania says:

      I always knew there was a load’ o dirt on all these women. Why? Because their zeal and vigor at going after Danielle Staub. You can take every accusation they’ve flung at her, some true, some not, and reduce them to a single word: You. You, You, You, not Me, Me, Me. They were trying to silence her with intimidation. I have to hand it to her because even though there are so many varying accounts of her history in her present day life she is what she is. Bravo showed a clip of her saying, ‘I’m not passive, and I’m not aggressive’, in which it felt like they were mocking her because it was shown in a bunch of ‘crazy danielle’ clips…but that’s a pretty honest description. I think her biggest mistake is that she wasn’t afraid of these women. With her past, who would be.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Manzo smoke and mirrors! Always going after someone else so they don’t have to answer about themselves…..Rainbow pissed some of the little bunnies off big time which is interesting too.

  132. Diana says:

    Hi Rainbow, I’m going to give you benefit of the doubt in my book, and call your contributions legitimate until proven otherwise.

    I remember a way’s back when some people had their doubts about our much loved WSL being “legit”. Turns out she’s VERY legit.

    This is just a lot of new information to digest after a bit of a dry spell. And I, like Boston, have been DYING for someone with inside information on these people. So perhaps I am biased in my quest for dirt. Still, some of this rings awfully true. We have all speculated that Dina had some mental issues. But when you mentioned PTSD (with a side order of bipolar) that nailed it for me, especially because I have had it for years. I remember how she acted like a trapped animal last year at the table flip dinner, and it reminded me of a PTSD episode.

    Jeff Lewis has some mental issues by his own admission, and every time he’s asked who’s his favourite housewife is, Dina is always at the top of his list. And I don’t think it’s because she is pretty. Jeff likes dark, remember? And he sees that in her.

    Many here thought Tony/Toni/Tommy was gay, possibly a cross dresser. That would be a bigger scandal than if he just had a kid by some chick on the side. (I really did think he was gay). But this news of yours rings very true, because if you were making this stuff up, I would think you would be more inclined to go with embellishing details that we already *assumed*. You also gave us insight into Kim G’s bizarre behaviour being (possibly) due to a mental degenerative disease. All of these bitches are crazy, but an organic basis for her behaviour actually never crossed *my* mind, but now puts her behaviour into perspective. Anyway, I’ve babbled on here long enough, but like I said, I’m giving you the benefit of the doubt, and I’ll be the first one to take the onslaught of rotten tomatoes from everyone if I end up being wrong.

    • justanothermary says:

      As much as I would LOVE to believe everything Rainbow has posted, I do believe she has said some things that are not true and pretty easily proven to be false. Maybe it was rumor that she heard and repeated, but it negates the entire post in my mind. Just MHO.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      won’t be throwing rotten tomatoes at u Diana..I agree there is a ring of truth with Rainbow, not a lot but some, and I think the screamers are split between Diana and Ashley..the bad grammar and spelling likely Ashley’s work … seems like the knee jerk reaction you get from both of them when they feel attacked

    • quincyil says:

      The Jeff Lewis comment is very interesting. She does top his list. I read that in real life she is strikingly attractive. She’s petite and her hair is an asset. She wears blue contacts and has large eyes. I am sure she plays the shy girl game quite well and that is appealing to men.

      We have seen the dark side of Dina with her twitter wars. Jeff doesn’t pay attention to that stuff.

      • Diana says:

        No he doesn’t, but he’s met her. I would love to know what sort of vibes she gives off in person.

    • Raquel Papel says:

      I might be naive, but I have never thought Tommy as being gay. Ever since I saw him way back when on VH1, I thought of him as a “man about town” I have friends that have his mannerism are 100% heterosexual, but on the other hand I have had friends that are 100% manly men, that are gay. So, you cant always judge by the cover. I don’t think he is gay, I just don’t think he was into Dina. I think Dina is into the money and does not much care if he is into her or not.

  133. Diana says:

    Jersey Girl on the other hand…hmmm….

  134. boston02127 says:

    So…umm…Dina is Tommy’s love child a boy or a girl?

  135. boston02127 says:

    Could it be the work of Ashley & Jacqueline? Jacqueline isn’t that bright and Ashley has no diginty. They’re both pretty stupid. That brings me to Teresa. Eh, she’s just stupid. Maybe Kim G, she’s all of the above and has nothing to lose.

    copy of every sailboat that has won the Americas Cup. There is only one ladies room & it still has the urinals in it.
    The best part is the Newport RI club open in the summer. It is fab ,Fab ,Fab. I sail w/ some very serious sailors. One won the Americas cup. I raced in the 150th NYYC Anniversary Race. Our boat a Jay Boat was crushed by the Ticondiroga. We had to get major repairs but ended up coming in 2nd. Actually I was there day one & everyone including WSM was so UNFUN I decided to “wash my hair” Tues. Which was the accident. Wed no race. My Thurs w/major competition on everyone’s brain so I stayed home to do my nails !
    Seriously WSM quick thinking & strength saved 2 lives. I May post our vessel if I can find the picture.

What I don’t understand is why the hoarders they always have on don’t clean. There’s not much room to be organized but they could spray a little Clorox cleaner and wipe stuff down.

    • justanothermary says:

      When I was growing up there was a hoarder living up the block. I’ve been away from home for many years now, but everytime I go home we drive by her house. It is truly horrible and I would hate to live anywhere near that fire trap. That being said, the hoarder is a close family friend and I have know her all my life. Outside the house she is charming, intelligent and very kind. If you didn’t know, you would never guess.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      That show really creeps me out!

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      it’s connected to OCD. It drives the Virgo in me INSANE-must to yours too.

    • Adgirl says:

      boston02127 – I have no idea how you can watch that! It’s too sad to me. Those people are obviously sufferring from mental disorders (OCD?). What a miserable life for themselves and their families. On the West Coast we seem to have a huge amount of people who hoard animals. Awful. The pets are filthy and diseased. The people are very nice but have no clue about how destructive they are being.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I saw a hording show once where the lady saved her USED toilet paper! Did you hear about this:



      • boston02127 says:

        I do feel very sorry for these people. I hate to say it but if that were me I’d throw a match over my shoulder on the way out the door and never look back.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Adgirl–That’s awful about the animals. Very sad. I don’t know why I’m watching this either. I think it’s making me nervous.

        • Adgirl says:

          It makes you wonder if they started this behavior in high school or when?? Can it be stopped early?

      • cusi77 says:

        I have move so many times in my life…( living in several cities in several Countries). I think that help me to be more detached to “things”… When I came to The USA I left 20 boxes of books (Art books most of them) and photos, memories from my Son childhood and 75 framed paintings! The paintings I have been bringing little by little, but no t the books… yet! The photo I posted in the IHJZ fam. was taken 3 years ago when I closed that studio for good.

        • Adgirl says:

          Where did you move from? Pretty exciting to move to another country I would think.

          • cusi77 says:

            I have lived in Barcelona, Spain. Paris, France(6 years). Lisbon, Portugal. Several Cities in It. Pietrasanta, Carrara, Verona and Venice (just months at a time, learning stone carving, Sculpture, Goldsmithing). I think I am a gypsy… I adapt myself easily…

    • cusi77 says:

      When I watch that program… I run around the house taking away things we don’t need! Clothes my hubby and I haven’t wear for more than one year or two, putting away for the good will what is still nice and clean, the rest… to the garbage, my husband laughs at me! I can’t stand to have more than we really use and enjoy. That program helps me to purge my space. I have read from Mortimer Adler the theory of enough… have somebody here?

    • The Hoarders have a mental disease. I get that.
      What I don’t get is their supposedly mentally healthy family members who live with them and complain about all the stuff but don’t do anything to stop them from piling shit everywhere.

      I remember one episode where the wife fell down the stairs because they were covered with boxes of magazines. She blamed her husband for putting the boxes there. Hello?! You have two arms and two legs. Walk that shit outside to the trash can.

      I like that show, but it irritates the hell out of me sometimes.

      • Sha2000 says:


        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I am not interested in starting a disagreement with you but I have to say I find your blanket classification of “Enablers” a little bit insulting and narrow minded.

          If someone was bio-polar and displayed their signs of mental illness with erratic behavior- would you be so hasty in judging their family?

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        My MIL is a hoarder (not as extreme as what is seen in on the stories on TV- but hoarder none the less) and a compulsive shopper.

        It’s not as easy as the family members taking the crap to the trash can to deal with the situation; just like family members of an drug abuser or alcoholic can’t fix the problem by flushing them down toilet or like wise pouring the contents of the bottle down the sink. They will just go out and score those items again unless the real sickness and issues are dealt with.

        There is a lot of anger and resentment on both sides when family members confront the person about the issue-not to mention the excuse making ‘It’s because you don’t help me enough’ ect.

        • MickeyMouth says:

          I just saw my first episode of hoarders about a week ago. I don’t see that show as entertainment. It was sad to watch and although I knew the hoarders were ill, I kept feeling sorry for the family and neighbors living with their illness. It seems this form of OCD? begins after a death or major trauma. I won’t be watching the show again. Too depressing. I am sorry your mil suffers from it.

    • Diana says:

      Boston, I *love* how you moved the conversation toward hoarding. There is a board all about this that has been around for years:
      http://www.squalorsurvivors.com/ it eventually moved to a different board, but you can find it all in the link above. For anyone who has suffered from depression that has manifested itself into an untidy (or further) home, I encourage folks to check this place out. It’s not quite as good as it used to be, but it is still an excellent source of ideas and support.

  146. diamond-lover says:

    hi peeps I’d have 2 agree with wayne&garden girl you shouldn’t believe everything you read about people I’m also a mom & wld hate if any1 talk about my kid& family it’s just low of them dis is nothing but gossip&drama!!!!

    • justanothermary says:

      We don’t believe everything we hear or read. There are some true detectives on this site and most things are proven before accepted as true. We do, however, please court documents regarding bankrupty and the like.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Well, @diamondlover, @waynesgirl, @jerseygirl, @garden_stategirl:

      The fact that you all suspiciously use the word dis for this has completely convinced me!

      I have seen the light and will no longer believe anything I see on RHONJ, or read here on this blog. I will only believe what the 4 (?) of you say because your CAPS must make it right!

      Oh and I won’t think for myself either, because you’ve told me that the Manzo’s are a good family, so you must be right because after all, you have kids too!

      thank you so much for contributing!

    • Sha2000 says:

      You keep coming in with the same pink avatar. It’s not working, you know what I’m saying?

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Of course you agree since you also are wayne & garden. Kinda obvious, even without seeing the IP.

    • justanothermary says:

      So now we have ANOTHER poster with the same avitar as Waynes girl and Jersey girl. BUSTED – too funny. It has to be one of the MGL clan because anyone else would have thought about the avitar before changing their name several times.

  148. WindyCityWondering says:

    It is funny that it didn’t take the peanut gallery too long to respond to Rainbow’s posts, which leads me to believe this site is monitored daily and that the little secrets are not so little or so secret….

    • Sha2000 says:


      • Sha2000 says:

        Funny she didn’t say a peep 2 days ago when I defended Dina’s charity work. I guess they only want to piss & moan when it’s not to their liking.

        Don’t worry Whatever-girl! Good, bad or indifferent we will still watch your moms sorry ass show. And BTW, why are you off the show? Did your stepdad put the kabash on it??????

        • boston02127 says:

          She’s too busy becoming a model. hee hee

          • Sha2000 says:

            & Boston on that twitter acct for JerseyGirl1941 theres a NJ modeling agency being followed. I’m ready to place my bet on Ashley.

        • quincyil says:

          Do you think this was Dina trying to discredit the site?

          • OneMoreinBoston says:

            Manzo/Laurita clan is pretty big. Lots of cousins. rainbow could be one of them and so could the other (s)

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            she has a habit of responding to speculation about her marriage, gets twitter crazy when legitimate questions are posed about her charitable endeavors….maybe she was bored today and couldn’t help herself….

      • Adgirl says:

        Can we find a DC troll/insider?
        I am curious about how the Salahi’s pay for the hotel rooms and clothing (they can’t all be borrowed can they?).
        Do they run an investment or credit card scam on the side?

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          She’s a call girl. For men who like women so skinny they are tough to find in the bedsheets.

        • boston02127 says:

          @quincyil–She’s busy begging Tommy to love her.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          reading this blog and probably RCH’s blog as Dina has been a main topic of late.

          • quincyil says:

            Remember Kandi reading blogs in Atlanta? Bravo told them not to read blogs. I’m sure Dina was told that. She can’t stop twittering so I’m sure she looks for herself on blogs. We all know she has issues with our Lynn. I think Dina is bright enough to follow Lynn here, but she can’t stand up to so many people. Everything about Dina is very sad. Her life. Her family. She is happy about a closet with a chandeliar.
            I really feel badly for her.

      Who’s worrying?

      I’ve got my own cross to bear as we all do. We are mainly all grown women with families to care for, we come hear to talk TV (some times other shows too) & relax. Keep it in that perspective & maybe you will finally realize what a fool you’ve been acting.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Why don’t you grow a pair & tell us who you are. Names are not necessary, just your realationship to the show.
        & Please just tell us one kindness about one HW; I’m sure there must be one good thing you can say, right? Be a woman & converse like one.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Last time I checked I am still not $11 million dollars in debt, my husband hasn’t gotten any tickets much less DUIs or done jail time and no one has had me “checked out” cause my family isn’t thick as thieves!

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I worry about the economy, my son getting a good education and staying healthy. I do NOT worry about people who choose to put their lives on nationwide reality television. If they do not want any criticism, then don’t go on a nationwide reality television show. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

  165. Adgirl says:

    I think it’s terrible to imply that nearly everyone of Italian decent in NJ is mob related. Even if their father or other relatives are or were.
    It’s no different than saying because you are from the South your family owned slaves and youy must be a racist.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      who said that?

    • quincyil says:

      That is true. There are a lot of hard working, good people living in New Jersey. Why Bravo couldn’t find one for their show is a mystery.

    • nathania says:

      I don’t know who painted with a broad brush but the Manzos are living off mafia-skimmed money that Tiny apparently got capped over. They ripped D. Staub to shreds over her 25 yr. old past when their family’s much uglier past is very much pre$ent, and then wouldn’t even talk about it except to call the mob hit a ‘terrible tragic unsolved crime’ or some schlock like that, and shut down the discussion as ‘not relevant to the show’. They are slimier than frogs’ butts and it’s the unbearable stench of hypocrisy about this that I can’t stand.

    is it sleeping?

    or lurking?

    hey people some of these things r funny as hell but sorry I gotta side with the jersey girls we really shouldn’t rush 2 judgement without facts &evidence 2 back up others lies & slanders!!

    • Who wants to take bets on which member of the Manzo mob butterfly/Jersey/whatever is?

      I think it’s Teresa because of the all caps. Even in text she can’t hide her anger issues.

      Okay, dumbass…. You’ve hijacked this blog all freaking day long. You are boring me to tears!! I live on the West Coast and all this NJ v NY shit shit means NOTHING out here.

    Need A Hobby and WindyCity…look at the times of our replies. We are ON it 😀

  175. quincyil says:

    I wish I had the tweets from Dina’s ranting at Lynn on hand so we could do some forensics. First this individual says all of these lies about the Manzos and then she criticizes us for what seems to be our paying attention to reality stars who put their lives out there for a few dollars and a chance to sit with Andy and drink.

    There is one person who can’t take criticism and who has a history of attacking Lynn and stalking Lynn. That person is Dina and we have evidence from Lynn that she has done this. Dina has a reason to be upset as she was discussed here. Trolls are out there for sure, but this troll had an agenda. It even tried to adjust in order to be taken seriously. Dina also put some wild accusations about Tommy out there on her own twitter at times. I wonder if Dina has a drinking problem. We don’t see this on TV so it’s just my speculation, but if Lexi had a weekend with Dad and Dina was home alone with her two cats, she might read the net and freak out as she did with the twitter war. She certainly would not identify herself as Dina. I would never expect her to say harmful things about her family, but she has done that with twitter and Tommy in the past. I don’t know, but I wish I had the words from her twitter to compare with these rants.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      agreed. I think it’s Dina. But I think her meds are off not the booze.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      “It even tried to adjust in order to be taken seriously.” I noticed that too! It has a modicum of intelligence.

      • Sha2000 says:

        She seems SO immature though, & Dina goes out in NY, why then all the NY bashing?

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          Agree with the immensely immature. Maybe Claude has multiple personalities.

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          She’s not NY bashing- she’s bashing @Rainbow who moved out of NJ and now lives in NY, but still goes back to visit her mother.
          @Rainbow wanted to play the Lady of the Manor with WSL and got shot down pretty fast. I wonder what she tries to pull in real life?

          • Zipit Zarin says:

            In real life she tried being on a reality show and found out…GASP..HOLY SHITBALLS! IT’S FOR REAL! So she quit and retreated into shady Tweet and Cyber Land. ? Maybe?

          • boston02127 says:

            I’m not sleeping yet I’m eating a sub first. Had to jump in. Ashley is living in NY now with a roommate. It’s on her tweets.

            Right oneMore I got that but she also takes straight NY shots.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      maybe Tommy is at the house across the street from the Bstone with his other family….maybe Grandma Wrinkles isn’t being friendly today with all the incense fummage and crystals tinkling…..maybe this is “fun”……

    Ok – that clinches it in my mind – How’s it going Ashley? Go ask Albie how avitars work and he’ll explain how really really stupid you’re being. But make sure he doesn’t say anything to your Mom, she’d really get her thong in a bundle if she knew you went from Facebook to Lynn’s blog. BTW, you better get that tat checked out, an infection can be pretty serious.

      On the brighter side, is there one personality you can borrow money from while the main one doesn’t remember it happened? I’m just thinking of the angles. 😉

  179. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Well, this has been worth the price of admission to our little goat rodeo!

    Time to say g’night- don’t let the trolls bite

  180. Ya know, in one way its a good thing that the whole drama with Rainbow, got played-out the way it did here.
    What I mean is what happened, is EXACTLY, what I was afraid-of. That “they” would find-out what was said, and using the personal info. get back to her with threats.
    Love the bully tactics-(not!) (trying to be sarcastic here).
    I was worried,.Lynn was worried enough to post her email addy yesterday, but now the worst has happened, and yeah they are big bad bullies………..if they didn’t want their dirty laundry aired, WHY go on TV?
    I can see where Rainbow’s pain is coming-from. After the lawyers get a-hold of her, we may never here from her again. Looks like RHWONJ have a habit of shutting people up, and then throwing it in their face on People© mag and TV.
    That’s really got to drive the folks in Frankilin Lakes who’s marriages were hurt, and who’e waiting to be re-paid…nuts!
    Look at what Rob on Popeater wrote, I guess he’s trying to be friends-with Teresa again. Some BS quote from Teresa that the auction was all a “publicity stunt” by angry creditors. Wow-can you imagine how it feels for the people who KNOW what’s really going-on?
    RAINBOW—I just hope that we don’t lose you to some puny Cease & Desist scare. I hope that if they send lawyers to shut you up, that they actually have to spend money & time doing it, not just bullying and threats.
    And to you RHWONJ who are bullying her-shame on YOU! You asked for it, you fame-whores. How DARE you go after people when you are infuriating them with the LIES that you put out there.

      That’s the way they roll. If she is for real she shoulda known that, right? Why put out enough info that they could identify her? Naive?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      true dat! well said and for what it is worth – Rainbow must scare them alot! The MO is so Caroline & Co – call the parents, threaten them to get their kids in line – don’t hurt the kids? please….airing your obnoxious bs on national tv? what about your own kids????

    • Need a Hobby says:

      We don’t know the reality of any of this. I wouldn’t take it too seriously.

      And if Rainbow was legit at least in part, she was warned and knew what she was doing. Or she may be entirely bogus and it’s all been a charade, performance art. As with the other poster of many names.

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        Zactly. She gave out personal info knowing how they roll.

        • iceNfire says:

          Agree with Needs a Hobby – The only reality I know right now is that my husband is sulking after NFL Sunday.

          • Oh-yeah, and the way the whole thing played out was a little too predictable wasn’t it?
            If that was all a performance, I hafta applaud, she/he/it really had me going!
            “For best performance as innocently stumbling onto a blog, and getting caught-up in real-life drama, the award goes-to……”?

            • truelifediva says:

              And the award for “Worst/Most boring/Didn’t fool anybody/” troll is….
              Instead shouting their ignorance all over this blog all day, they should have dished some dirt. Revenge dirt is the best kind 😉

    Have a great sleep OMB.

    Ashley, if you come back tomorrow from the same IP, I’ll stop in and bust you on that one too. Ask Albie what and IP is, or maybe you’re little brother CJ, he seems like a bright fellow.

    Anybody here watch Desperate Housewives? Waiting for tonight’s episode, don’t spoil it for me if you’re on the East Coast 😉

    • lillybee says:

      Iron Chef or me tonight.

      • truelifediva says:

        I DVR Iron Chef to watch after Desperate Housewives and then decide to watch based on what the “secret ingredient” is.

      You’re smokin’ HOT!
      Where’s my shoes?…

      • truelifediva says:

        Aww thanks, Noelle 😀
        That’s funny, my fiance asked the EXACT same thing when I changed my avatar. Makes me think you biotches are ONLY interested in me for my damn shoes….. I’ll tell you like I told her, more shoes are on the way. What, my pic from my GlamourShots days ain’t good enough? I got enough pics to change my avatar EVERY week if I’m so inclined. 😉
        Wall St. Lady was hitting on OMB yesterday. Just thought you’d want to know she’s trying to move in on our triangle….

        • Noelle says:

          Oh Hell to the NO!!!

          TO, WSL and OMB…WTF?? grrrrrrr….??

          I’ll have you my pretty and your Louboutin..s, too!

          Diva’s MINE….take your toys AND GO home…she told me to tell you that!! xxxx
