Hello gossip hounds. Brent is off this weekend so I once again will try to deliver the dish.
Let’s start in New Jersey as I know so many of you are very interested in the legal saga of Teresa and Joe Giudice. Teresa told ABC News that she is “easygoing” compared to her table flipping reality tv persona. She says “out of respect of the process” she is going to “let the legal matters play out in court” rather than go into what she did or didn’t know regarding her and Joe’s 41 count tax and financial fraud indictment with charges that span from 2004 to 2011.
The Giudices have asked for separate trials and Joe will “testify to Teresa’s non involvement” in any criminal activity if they are granted. Teresa told correspondent Amy Robach that as strong as she is she does break down after her girls are asleep at night. Joe, who could be deported back to Italy, told Robach “If you’re weak you’re not gonna make it.” He also goes on to say that he is proud of all of Teresa’s accomplishments. The couple is currently filming Real Housewives of New Jersey season 6 which, according to the report, will NOT feature any of the legal storyline.
While we are on the topic of RHONJ EOnline reports that a source close to the shows’ filming has been dishing about the season 6 conflicts, and they are not between Teresa and sister in law Melissa Gorga. According to the article Melissa and Teresa are getting along fine, but Mel is “clashing” with Dina Manzo who returns to the show after departing after season 2. The cast shakeup also includes three new Housewives; Amber Marchese and twin sisters Nicole and Teresa Napolitano, who seem to be stirring the pot as well. Chances are we will not know when season 6 will air for quite a while, but last season wrapped filming in April and aired in June.
RHONJ may be a while away, but The Real Housewives of New York is returning to Bravo on March 11th. As we reported last week, Ramona Singer is in the midst of a nasty divorce from husband Mario. One person who is weighing in on this is former RHONY cast member Jill Zarin. It seems that the mouthy red head took New York Fashion Week as an opporunity to express her opinion on Singer’s marital woes. “Ramona wasn’t admitting socially what was reall going on and I think the viewers want to know,” she told Buzz. Countess LuAnn de Lesseps was a little more sympathetic. “We have talked,” she told the New York Post about her co star. “It’s not easy going through a divorce in public. I went through it. You don’t wish anything bad onto other people, no matter what they’ve done to you in the past.” De Lesseps, though still part of the RHONY cast will be a part timer on the new season. I spent some time over the summer with the cast while they were filming. Be sure to watch next month for what looks to be interesting, and if not, well, this could be the end of this franchise.
Speaking of the end, E Online reports that Real Housewives of Miami will have a season 4. Despite previous rumblings that the show was over, Alexia Echevarria told E that “There will definitely be a season four for Miami. I have spoken to producers and they are currently working on dates for taping, since we usually begin taping this time of year we were told taping is being pushed back a little.” When asked about why castmate Joanna Krupa had “spread” rumors of a cancellation Alexia said that the model, “has poor comprehension” in regards to what producers had told the cast. Alexia also goes on to say that Joanna doesn’t belong on RHOM or any of the franchises. Joanna told E that Alexia needs to “fact check before trying to put words in my mouth.”
One thing that looks like it will definitely end is Kim Zolciak and Kroy Biermann‘s quest to populate the world. The Don’t Be Tardy star told Life and Style magazine that her husband will be undergoing a vasectomy. “We’ll do something permanent because I’m so fertile,” she said. Kim revealed that she really wanted to do something right after the birth of twins Kaia and Kane but high blood pressure prevented it. The couple shares six children, four together and Kim’s two older daughters who Kroy adopted. So there will be no more Biermanns born? Relief, now can we get Kevin Federline to join the vasectomy club?
Tell us what are your thoughts on Real Housewives of Miami. Should there be a season 4?
