Housewives for Tots

Last Friday night I attended yet another party with the Real Housewives of New Jersey. These ladies are always out, about, and in the spotlight, but more so now that the cameras are once again watching their every move.The event at Al Di La’ in East Rutherford, NJ was hosted by Housewife friends Heather and Cliff Robinson. You may remember Heather and Cliff from RHONJ Season IV. Cliff is the extraordinarily tall former NBA star and Heather is his stunning wife, the one who got very flirtatious with Rosie Pierri in the hot tub. I spoke to Heather on the red carpet. She was wearing a snakeskin print dress in holiday festive red and was thrilled with the turn out.The Robinson’s head The Robinson Network ( whose aim, as outlined in their mission statement, is to “Unite celebrities and pro athletes under a common banner (in order to use their status to reach) farther and wider (to achieve) better results for a greater number of charities.” Together with Dining Out NJ, they threw a party to benefit Toys For Tots. Guests arrived with new unwrapped toys to be donated, and from the looks of the table when I dropped my gift off, there will be many more smiling faces on Christmas morning.There were all the makings of a Jersey worthy soiree’. Red carpet, photo booth, press, and Kathy Wakile’s cannolis, set up next to a chocolate fountain no less. It was after this evening that I decided to start my New Year’s diet early. Speaking of Kathy Wakile, she looked fantastic fresh off her QVC debut just two days before.

Also at this event was Jacqueline Laurita. This was the first time I had seen her since her Sparkle Speaks for Autism fundraiser in September (Jacqueline Sparkles and Speaks for Autism 9/20/12). She looked incredible in a sequined cocktail dress. She also looked very happy and well rested.

This was the Jacqueline from the earlier days of the series. Her recent tweets about her son Nicholas’s progress and her improved relationship with daughter Ashlee (Holmes) would explain her renewed glow.

This was truly a great night for all involved. Charity, networking, socializing, eating, oh and drinking, as demonstrated by the woman who slipped and fell right in front of me…was it real or was she trying to get on the show?…There may have been a camera there, then again, maybe there wasn’t, you will have to tune in to Season V to find out. And if there was and you do, I’m the woman hovering in front of the cannolis and the chocolate fountain!

Correction: The event was also hosted by New Jersey Dining Out Magazine and its publisher/owner Robyn Levy.
