I Hate Jill Zarin Tuesday, Nov 16, 2010
There has been a lot of activity surrounding Teresa Giudice of The Real Housewives of New Jersey lately. Discussions of what is appening in regards to her bankruptcy, her filming the show and whether or not she’ll be a regular Housewife next season or will she be the Lisa Wu Hartwell of New Jersey? I doubt it, Teresa knows that Bravo doesn’t fool around, look at what happened to Dina.
The Giudice’s attorney spoke to the press and explained that the fallout of the Giudice’s bankruptcy is denied would be great and it would harm those that are innocent in this whole situation. I’m sure he’s referring to the four children but how many times have we heard Teresa say that it’s not about money or what you give your children, it is all about how much you love them and family togetherness? Isn’t that what matters to Teresa and Joe? Read it here:
Teresa: ““I really appreciate everyone’s concern. I get the sweetest, most uplifting letters from people. And yes, Joe and me and the girls are all happy and healthy. We’re in God’s hands. What more could I ask?”
Popeater claims they have a source who is a friend of Teresa’s, here’s what @NaughtNiceRob had to say:
The reality star’s friend tells me she would rather drop out of the show altogether than end up in prison because of something she lets slip on TV. The poor thing is terrified.
Her legal troubles are not the only reason Teresa is scared. nsiders tell me Teresa’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, contacted Bravo about joining the cast. Bravo liked the idea so much that they even spent a week with Melissa doing test filming behind Teresa’s back.
Is Teresa worried about allowing cameras to follow her around in case she lets something slip that could get her into trouble? What a way to live!
Teresa is also following in Bethenny’s footsteps, teaching a class at the Learning Annex in New York on how to “Have It All”. For about $45 bucks, you too can learn how to spend wildly money that you don’t have, screw over contractors who work hard for their money, overindulge your children, flip a table, scream like an animal, and more! Don’t miss this opportunity!
A few months back, I posted a legal document that was filed in New Jersey that accused Joe and Teresa of hiding assets when they originally filed their bankruptcy. Obviously this is against the law and there are consequences for this behavior. However, many reports of criminal charges are inaccurate. At this time, no criminal charges have been brought up against the Giudice’s. Could there be in the future? Sure, but right now, there are none. I think the biggest problem that they’re going to run into is with the IRS, reports that the couple never filed their income tax returns could be a big problem. Based on the documents, their returns were prepared, but never actually filed with the IRS. Oops!
More speculation on Teresa’s appearances on the show imply
that she has major issues with her sister-in-law Melissa Gorga who is rumored to be the newest New Jersey Housewife. Teresa has tried to deflect these rumors by pointing out Melissa and her brother Joey’s very brief appearance at her baby’s Christening party, they can be seen in the background of one shot. Apparently Teresa feels that the couple’s attendance at this party dispels all of the rumors that they do not get along.
That doesn’t really do it for me as the rumors of Teresa refusing to film with Melissa and even holding out on signing on for the season were due to Melissa being the newest housewife. These were widely spread rumors that the two ladies did not get along, nothing that either of them have said on Twitter contradicts that rumor:
@Melissa_Gorga: I know this might seem strange, but I think I’m a little bit of Gretchen and a little bit of Caroline…
@Melissa_Gorga: Enough of this nonsense talk, It’s a gorgeous
day (in Jersey at least) So lets go enjoy it!!
@Melissa_Gorga: To everyone asking yes we were there, it was
our nieces 1st birthday, we are not animals…
Even better, some older tweets that lead us to believe that Melissa is responding directly to what Teresa is saying based on the timeline:
@Teresa_Giudice: Guess who else was at Audriana’s small family
party? My brother Joe, my sister-in-law Melissa and their gorgeous kids. xx
@Teresa_Giudice: Here’s a pic of Melissa & my baby nephew Joey at the party. Neither of them are black or not speaking to me. Hmm.. http://twitpic.com/2qqp7d
@Teresa_Giudice: Don’t you love little Joey’s outfit? I brought it to him when I visited him at the hospital. So much for those feud rumors… xx
@Melissa_Gorga: This is a first… What a JOKE!
@Melissa_Gorga: Well I think we have never made it to a tweet or even a mention at all, why now… hmmmmm, good night!
@Melissa_Gorga: All joking aside, the past is the past, everyone starts with a fresh slate, family is family, period.
@Melissa_Gorga: What a day, can a leopard change its spots? I’m not to sure yet…
Is it just me or does Melissa seem a bit skeptical?
Teresa has her own blog web site and posts just about every day, she promotes her wares and tries to crush rumors. In a post called, “Crazy Press Week” she confirms that she loves her brother but does not mention his wife at all, she talks about filming with Caroline and Jacqueline but never mentions Melissa, you can find it here:
Bethenny has announced some tour dates and another Body By Bethenny video that she’s working on, here are some of her posts on Twitter and Facebook:
TO @Bethenny I follow ur yoga DVD 3-4 a week & LOVE it.do u plan on making another?
Bethenny: I’m doing another one! maybe w a guy? thoughts?
Bethenny Frankel CHICAGO- you asked for it! I’ll be at the Genesee Theatre in Waukegan on Jan 28. Tickets go on sale Friday, but below is a link for an exclusive presale (available now) for my Facebook friends. Password is ‘SKINNYGIRL’ ttp://xr.com/rtzv
The remaining Real Housewives of New York are still in Morocco, best we can tell. Simon tweeted the exact number of hours he has to wait until his wife is back home: (how sweet!)
@SimonvanKempen Oh yes we’re hanging in. 93 hours down & 54 to go.
Possibly to throw people off a bit, a few of the New York Housewives tweeted on Monday leading many to believe that they’re back home again, but I don’t think so. Kelly doesn’t tweet just once a day if she can tweet ten times, here’s all she’s posted since word leaked that she was leaving for Morocco, Kelly and Ramona posted :
@Kikilet: happpyyy mondayyyy. what are my cool tweeters
@Ramona Singer: super! Everyone visit http://www.TrueFaithJewelry.com to get your special gift for the Holidays.
We know that the ladies did not all travel to Morocco together, Kelly, Jill and Luann flew out one day before Alex, Cindy, Sonja and Ramona joined them.
Until Next Time…
