The Jersey Girls Will Return To "My Big Gay Italian Wedding" In October

Post from Broadway World.

                                       By:BWW News Desk
After launching a limited engagement in the Off-Broadway comedy My Big Gay Italian Wedding, September 1st - 4th, the stars of the hit Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" have announced that they will return to the production for four more performances. October 20th - 23rd, Teresa Giudice, Ashley Holmes, Jacqueline Laurita, Caroline Manzo and Lauren Manzo will return to the roles of Wedding Officiator, Connie Scuccifuffio, Toniann Naso, Angela Pinnunziato and Maria Pinnunziato, respectively, in the outrageous Off-Broadway comedy now playing at St. Luke's Theatre, 308 West 46th Street.

"The last two weeks of rehearsal have been so exciting for all of us," says Caroline Manzo. "Our limited engagement sold out very quickly and the ladies and I have had so much fun with the show, that we decided that we should return for a second engagement next month. If you are surprised at how well we can all dance now, just wait and see what we look like in October!"

Joe And Teresa's Marriage Is Fine

Article from People.

By: Sabrina Ford
Don’t believe everything you read. Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice says rumors that her husband Joe is a philanderer who may have fathered a love child are “so crazy I laugh at them.”

“We’re totally in sync and amazing together. We’ve been married 10 years and I’m still so attracted to him,” Giudice told PEOPLE at the opening night celebration of her guest stint in the Off-Broadway comedy My Big Gay Italian Wedding, produced by former Housewife, Dina Manzo. Her RHONJ cast mates, with the exception of Danielle Staub, also appear in the play.

The missing Staub was mentioned, however. Regarding the spreading of rumors, which picked up steam after an explosive reunion special, Giudice said, “I hope it’s not Danielle.”

Giudice says her “Juicy Joe,” as she’s famously nicknamed him, are still as in love as they’ve always been. “I look at him and I’m like, ‘Wow he’s hot!’ I think he feels the same way about me. I love his body, I love his muscles.”
Giudice finds the rumors of a love child particularly preposterous. “It’s so crazy that I can brush it off,” she says. “I don’t even think about it. I guess that’s when you know you’re really a star when people start making up things. What’s the next thing? Are we doing drugs? I think I heard that’s the next one.”

And what about Joe? Is he upset about the accusations? “Not Joe,” says Giudice, “We’re both positive people and we don’t let the negative get to us. That’s why we’re so happy together.”

Andy Does Not Take Sides

Article from Pop Eater.

By Rob Shuter
Andy Cohen, the adorable Bravo exec who gave himself his own talk show ('Watch What Happens: Live'), sat down with me to answer some of my burning questions about his uber-hot 'Housewives' franchise. Find out what secrets he reveals about part two of the 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' reunion show, airing Monday. He's the brave host. Plus, learn why the ladies should NOT need a pay increase any time soon and why Bravo passed on doing a gay version of the franchise.

What can we expect on Monday night ... come on Andy, give us a tease!
More engaging dialogue, Kim G., a show-and-tell from Danielle, a surprising plea for forgiveness and a shocking conclusion.

Why do you think the 'Jersey' show is the most popular?
I think people love the women, the drama and the family dynamic.

Who is your favorite housewife. Who do you hang out with?
I really don't have a favorite. I love them all and see them all out and about.

How do you decide whom to invite back. Is it all focus groups?
It is dictated usually by what they have going on in their lives and with each other.

The 'Housewives of DC' doesn't seem to have the same buzz as the others. What's your honest take on it?
I am so excited about the 'DC Housewives.' It surprises me every week because it touches on issues previously unseen in the franchise -- race, politics, genealogy, DC society and hierarchy. There's a really compelling and surprising debate about gay marriage coming up.
Some people complain there are too many 'Housewife' franchises out there, and that Bravo is diluting the brand. What would you say?
Actually, the brand has never been more popular, and we are very careful about where and how we expand it.

Why did Bravo pass on the gay housewife idea that another network (Logo) has picked up on?
It didn't interest us.

Which housewife calls you to complain the most?
I take the fifth.

Are you team Jill or Bethenny?
I am team everybody. They're both amazing.

Which housewife do you think leaks the most stories to the press?
I think the New York women run the leakiest ship in town, but they live and breathe in the center of the media universe, so they're way more exposed to the press on a daily basis.

Do all the housewives earn the same? How much?
They all do well for themselves.

Mary Does Not Talk To The Salahi's

Post from Radar Online.

Photo: Andrew Thayer
Tensions, tears — and Tareq — will dominate next Thursday’s episode of the hit Bravo reality show Real Housewives of D.C.
In a teaser of episode five, the popular and classy cast-mate Mary Schmidt Amons breaks down in tears while at dinner at Tareq and Michaele Salahi’s now defunct winery in Virginia.

Now can reveal the source of the high drama and why it has driven a major divide between the women of the series and the notorious White House ‘gatecrashers’.

In the episode to air Thursday, Tareq accuses one of Mary’s daughters of being linked to the theft of his personal belongings — polo gear — a claim the Washingtonian woman emphatically denies.
“It was very upsetting and disturbing to have your daughter falsely accused of something,” Mary told, in an exclusive interview.
“What was so upsetting, they actually don’t accuse her any crime, but being friends with someone who wronged them. She made a Facebook comment about whatever happened — it was a benign comment, which you will see.

“But it triggered a stomach-turning gut reaction because, in my opinion, this is stooping to the lowest of lows.
“I don’t care if it was true or not, but the fact that these people decided to bring something up that ‘apparently’ occurred years ago and to link to my daughter, I think was unfair.

“To put this on national television speaks to their character.”

While the Salahis seem to feed off of their infamy, their behavior has ostracized Mary and their co-stars Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Stacie Scott Turner.

“I am still very close friends with Cat, Lynda and Stacie; we have developed quite the little bond,” Mary dished to

“Going through what we have this last year will either bring you together or drive you apart.”

Asked if she still hangs out with the Salahis, Mary laughed, "No."

Michaele Is Too Wacky For The Other Housewives

Post from Hollywood Life.

By:Lindsey DiMattina
And Michaele’s husband Tareq Salahi might just be the cause of Michaele’s social downfall!

The division between the women on the The Real Housewives of Washington, D.C. continues to grow as the women definitely don’t want Michaele Salahi to be a part of their group anymore. “She’s just a little too wacky for me to really connect with,” Lifestyle guru and a regular on the show Paul Wharton told exclusively Aug. 28 at the Swagg tent during the closing day of the Bridgehampton Polo Challenge hosted by Hamptons Magazine in Bridgehampton, N.Y. And “I think [the other housewives] do” feel the same way!

“I think that they did the show means that each of them likes a bit of attention,” Paul said. “Obviously the one who craves the most attention is Michaele.” That’s what makes her different from the others.

“She even said something in last week’s episode like, ‘As long as people are talking about you, then you’re doing alright,” Paul told us. “Well, I think the other women [Lynda Erkiletian, Catherine Ommanney and Mary Schmidt Amons] – don’t necessarily feel that way.”
“You saw some of the interviews like on the Today show and on The View where Michaele was like, ‘You’re just jealous of me,’” Paul said. “Nobody in that group is jealous of her. Believe me!”

“I don’t know where her story can go,” Paul added. “You know what I think — and this is a hard thing to say because this is my honest opinion about that — I think that Michaele could come out ahead of everyone else if she left her damn husband! She could say she was being manipulated. She was in an abusive relationship. He does control what she is saying. He’s like all into that.”

“I don’t know how she could come back without getting rid of him because the wheels are slowly falling off,” Paul said. With Tareq gone, maybe Michaele could get her social life back in order. … Michaele and I were very close. We had a great friendship. It’s unfortunate. [But] she’s always in my heart.”

Teresa Does Not Regret Losing Her Cool At The Reunion

Post from US Magazine.

Does Teresa Giudice have any regrets about losing it on Danielle Staub during Monday's The Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion?

"Not at all," she told Wednesday at the opening night of My Big Gay Italian Wedding in NYC. "Danielle brought something up that had nothing to do with the show. I just told her, 'Do not bring up my family.' When she did, it just got heated really fast."

Andrei Jackamets/Bravo/NBCU Photo Bank
After Staub, 48, claimed Giudice, 38, didn't acknowledge the birth of one of her nephews, Guidice jumped off the couch and screamed two inches from Staub's face. In the process, she aggressively shoved host Andy Cohen.
"It was a normal reaction in that situation," Guidice told Us

.She said she would never lay a finger on Staub.
"I know that's what she wants," she told Us. "If I wanted to do it, I could have done it. But I didn't because that’s not my style."

Asked if she needs anger management classes, she simply laughed.
Caroline Manzo said she was "shocked" by Giudice's outburst, but she told Us her castmate "definitely had her reasons for doing what she did. I certainly don’t fault her, that was how she felt."

Kelly Thrown From Her Horse But Not Hurt

Post from Star Magazine. Pic./tweet from Kelly this morning.

Thank you Hampton Classic and "Bill" for the amazing horseshow. Congrats to all the riders. Oxoxoox
Avid equestrian Kelly Killoren Bensimon had a bumpy start to her day — she got tossed from her horse!

The Real Housewives of New York star was participating in the Hampton Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton, NY, earlier today when the incident happened.

"For all you haters, you won today," she wrote on Twitter on Thursday. "I got dumped off my horse in the middle of my round. Go celebrate. I am so upset."

This isn't the first time she's taken a tumble in her long history of riding. Last summer — just days before the same horse show, which specializes in jumping — she also took a spill. In her Bravo blog, she said she used that incident as a lesson to her daughters, Sea and Teddy, saying despite the fall, "I always tell my girls, 'Killorens always finish strong.'"

Kelly noted that although horses fear leaves — or even just a tissue — the sport is fun. "400 pounds of fun,” she blogged. “But when I fall, it always goes through my head, ‘What am I doing?’ and ‘Is it all worth it?’ As odd as it seems, I love this crazy sport. I love their athleticism and playfulness. I am hooked."
Sounds like she'll be back on that horse in no time!

Teresa's Sister-In-Law A New RHONJ?

Post from Radar Online.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey will soon be welcoming a new face to the neighborhood, can reveal exclusively.

While not every new or returning member has signed on, camera crews are already following around the new addition.

If Caroline, Jacqueline, and Teresa return to the show for another season, they will be sharing the small screen with Melissa Gorga, who happens to be Teresa Giudice’s sister-in-law! A Giudice family friend told, “She [Melissa] is not replacing her [Teresa]. I think Melissa is actually Dina’s replacement.”

The Giudice family friend said Gorga actually approached Bravo to be considered for Season 2.
“I believe Melissa is coming on the show because they’re at her house filming. They’ve been filming for weeks... at first she wasn’t sure she wanted to go on the show, but she decided to accept it.”
And it looks like Gorga will give extravagant Teresa a run for her money. “Melissa’s husband used to have a landscaping business and then he got into real estate. And she used to do his paperwork as his secretary and now she is a housewife,” the Giudice family friend said.

“Their house is actually twice the size as Joe and Teresa’s. It’s enormous! She has two live-in nannies and lives in a $4 million mansion on an exclusive lot in Montville. Teresa and Joe’s house looks like a garage compared to theirs.”
A rep for the show told, “We’ve announced the show is coming back, but haven’t made any announcements about casting yet.”

Teresa's Wedding Flowers Cost Ten Grand

Teresa finally opens up on her lavish spending, including her $10,000 shopping sprees and over the top wedding! Luckily, she just asked Bravo for a 200% raise to hopefully keep her and her daughters in heels!

Teresa Giudice is finally breaking her silence about how she and husband Joe managed to find themselves $11 million in debt — and of course taking none of the blame! Teresa told In Touch that her bankruptcy is the result of tenants not paying rent on her husband’s investment properties, before she goes on to say about her wedding, “my flowers cost $10,000, which was a lot of money 10 years ago.” Hmmm.

Teresa’s wedding dress was also $10,000, as was her wedding photographer. How does one even go about finding a $10,000 wedding photographer in the state of New Jersey?!

Teresa was not the only clothes horse in the family either, with Joe himself being an admitted shoe fetishist. “I had all these $150 pairs, and I never wore half of them,” said the gentleman famous for doing shots at friends houses after getting into car accidents in the early morning hours.

The Giudices have a plan however — they are making their daughters wear hand-me-downs! No word if Teresa herself would be curbing her clothing budget.
Teresa also continues to say it is her husband’s investment properties and not their home or shore house that is in foreclosure. “We haven’t lost anything yet,” she proudly proclaims.

She is also attempting to supplement the family income by asking Bravo for a 200% raise as well a percentage of DVD sales according to TMZ. Guess those Skinny Italian sales aren’t what she had hoped.

Teresa also has an amazing new plan that should definitely be the answer to all the family problems, “I want to save more.
