There are some of the most ridiculous rumors out there that we can’t afford it and that we are broke. Joe and I have worked very hard for many years to get where we are today. When we first started the show, we only owned one building. Now we own four or five. Joe was the only one bringing in money for the last few years, because I didn’t work and I was with the kids. Now we are both bringing in money. Why on earth would anyone think we are in that position? It’s just ridiculous. We do pay our mortgage and we are NOT broke.
There is a wonderful thing called the internet where you can look up public records and find out what we paid for our house, the rate on our mortgage, pretty much everything. The truth is this: we put our house up to get away from the negativity. I have to protect my family.
AT THE 2:20 MARK: Melissa says that her Montville house is SOLD and she and JoeyOrgan are now building their new house in FranklinLakes. This chat with the non-stop-gum-chewing Melissa is from her visit to a Florida Home and Garden Show just FOUR months ago, July 6, 2014… where people actually paid to see her! Before she explains her house situation, she also says that people are begging her to write another book; that she is STILL working on her “singing” career with JohnnyWright; she doesn’t watch TV (except for Bravo); and she’s very “hands on” with her kids… except when her mother, aunt and sisters are watching them:

Best caption will receive a tour of the recording studio where the GirlGroup recorded their songs! FinePrint: Before stepping into the studio, an unpaid lien must be satisfied. Last checked the amount was $835,633… the GirlGroup just couldn’t get the song right, even WITH auto tune!!
NOTE: The latest attention-getter now amongst Housewives is boyfriends just under the age of 26. Sorry, Sonja, but we’re givin’ you and your 25-yr-old boyfriend the side eye on this PR item. Perhaps you should have joined the other group of Housewives who are getting attention with their health issues!
“Sonja reveals that she purchased a life-saving “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” device to save her only daughter from finding Sonja in a crumpled pile at the bottom of her stairs in her much-needed renovating East side townhouse”…would have been much more believable!
The two met on camera when the housewives were having a girls’ night out at Beautique. “He kept my attention the whole night. He’s charming and elegant and well-mannered.”
The two were spotted last week dirty-dancing at BPM in the Out Hotel after a romantic dinner at KTCHN.
“I can leave him with my pocketbook, come back, and my pocketbook is still there, and he’s still there. He hasn’t left with a girlfriend,” Morgan laughed. “I like that in a guy.” Apparently, Sonja’s new under-25 boyfriend read her bankruptcy documents and knows that there’s nothing in her pocketbook!
SONJA: Call me if you need actual believable PR stories to plant!!
According to an “inside source” close to the wife of a cousin who use to date one of the vendors who supplied Twix bars to the Danbury commissary who told the cellmate of a Danbury prisoner who was released in 1999, there is a male prisoner serving time in Danbury for committing the crime of assault with a deadly weapon. The prisoner claims that the charges are trumped up and he never assaulted anyone with a deadly weapon! Unless throwing an XBox III at his wife after she scored higher than him counts.
Another “inside source” tells us that John “Whacky” Thrombotelli claims to have details in connection with the real identity of the person who offed Tiny Manzo and left him in the trunk of a Lincoln Continental. In a bizarre twist, Thrombotelli will only reveal the killer’s identity IF he can remain a prisoner in Danbury until January 30!
Thrombotelli is a huge fan of New Jersey Housewife, Teresa Giudice and wants to be Teresa’s private guide when she arrives at Danbury on January 5. Thrombotelli says that if his sentence is not extended, he will commit the first crime he can after he is released from Danbury… just to be back in Danbury to be one of the first Danbury inmates to greet Teresa!!
Will Thrombotelli get his wish to be Teresa’s personal guide to prison life in Danbury? Will Thrombotelli unlock the keys to the contents of that Lincoln Continental truck which was overloaded with the bloated body of a Manzo? Will Thrombotelli be released as scheduled and the killer’s identity never known? OR will Thrombotelli cut out of Danbury, commit another crime as he has threatened… only to be sentenced to 50 years… in ANOTHER PRISON!?
Teresa Giudice is finding the thought of prison a little difficult to digest. With her 15-month prison sentence just over six weeks away, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star has lost her appetite, a source reveals in the new … Continue reading →

SH has been asked to assist one of our international readers in their Housewives research! His questions would be better answered by as many SH readers/viewers of the Housewives franchises as possible and not strictly the viewpoint of SH.
Therefore, kindly respond in comments to assist…
“Hello. I’m coming to you today because I’m doing a thesis on the Housewives franchise. I’m a French student at Sorbonne in Paris, France. I’m currently doing a master in translation studies in english. Indeed, I would like to be an english translator. I have this class which is about the media in the US and we have to focus on a show (whether it’s an actual show or a reality tv show). So obviously, I chose the Real Housewives. Being a big fan of the franchise, I couldn’t miss this opportunity.
But the problem is I’m not American. And I would need your help, and the help of the SH readers to help me for this thesis. I have several questions I would like you to ask the readers so that I can put the general feeling of the answers (and even some answers that I would like to quote) in the work.” Signed “M.E.”
IN GENERAL… he is researching
“the perception of these shows, the core values etc”
And would like his paper to focus on
“how Bravo manipulates the viewers”
SPECIFICALLY… your answers to these questions:
WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU REALIZED THAT THE SHOWS LOST THEIR “SPARK”?
WHEN DID YOU DECIDE THAT THE SHOWS WERE NO LONGER WORTH VIEWING?
IS THERE ANY ENTERTAINMENT VALUE LEFT IN ANY OF THE HOUSEWIVES SHOWS? PLEASE EXPLAIN.
NOTE: As these are broad topics and some words have have been lost in translation, kindly do your best to answer! Your opinions are appreciated!
Milania has been the focus of many examples highlighted by the RHONJ producers because of her inappropriateness and her advanced “vocabulary”. Milania Giudice has been the poster child of how “reality” show children should not behave. While many find Milania’s … Continue reading →
