Real Housewives of New Jersey: Bar Brawl in Dominican Republic… Teresa Giudice Caused It

The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Teresa Giudice is known for causing a scene, and that’s just what she did while vacationing with the cast in the Dominican Republic last month – leading the “star” to be punched in the face … Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Somebody Alert Andy… Phony New Jersey Housewife and it Ain’t KimG!

Well, isn’t this something!

Isn’t it considered a felony crime to describe oneself as an ‘upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey star’ without kissing Andy Cohen’s ring and receiving his blessing first?

                                                              Uh, it explicitly says right here in your contract, that you signed, Taylor, that you must kiss my ring before your show airs.  I only let you slide this long ’cause your mouth is so huge I thought I’d just have an elbow left…

This blurb was on a local Louisville KY site:  “Playboy centerfold and upcoming “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Annika Bruggeworth will attend Saturday night’s shindig with her husband, Dr. Scott Bruggeworth.”

Here’s what… this ‘upcoming’ self-proclaimed ‘star’ of RHONJ is an attention diva and her husband is a dentist.

So, the following scenario probably takes place during the next season of Real Housewives of New Jersey on a “very special episode” of RHONJ

“Albie made all by himself a yummy surprise for his mommy... her favorite chocolate walnut cheesecake, which took him two days to make ’cause he was studying hard for a place in next year’s law class at Phoenix University of Online Law.   Albie knows that as a lawyer, he must understand and follow the letter of the law and he applied that understanding to the cheesecake recipe.  The recipe said to grind walnuts for the bottom crust and since the recipe assumed that everyone knows to not use the shell, that was not fully explained in the recipe and, of course, Albie ground the walnuts for the cheesecake crust, shell and all.

                                                Albie, you idiot… look what you did to Tree and lil Milania… make sure you wrap the rest of that rock-riddled cheesecake for Juicy…

“All the Manzos and Joo-dices are seated in their giant king and queen diningroom chairs, fully sated from the meal they just devoured when Albie enters with his masterpiece chocolate walnut cheesecake… it’s especially special ’cause even Chris can see that Albie didn’t swipe it from the Brownstone.  All the ooohs and aaaahs are over and before Jackie can get a forkful, Tree and little Milania have already attacked the cheesecake and began screaming.

“Forks drop and everyone covers their ears from the eerie sounds coming from little Milania amplified by Tree’s shreaking.  Little bits of white tooth chips are landing on their dessert plates and blood is dripping from their lips.  Caroline has seen this before (when Lauren beat the hell out of Christopher and Albie ’cause they told her she would never be flight attendant…) and knew a dentist was needed.  Big Albie and Caroline whisk them off to the nearest dentist, (Juicy wasn’t there… he had to attend an ‘important meeting’ at the apartment over the pizza shop) which is the above-named ‘upcoming star’ of RHONJ‘s husband.   As they rush into the dentist’s office, they are met by the ‘upcoming star’… her screen time lasts for five seconds.”

                                                Danielle warned about havin’ a non-Manzo on the show… losing teeth won’t make ME quit…

And that is why this particular fame-seeking wife of a dentist thinks she is the next ‘upcoming star’ of RHONJ… try as she may, poor thing will never be another Kim G.

                                                Yo, dental assistant… keep your drill and suction equipment out of Franklin Lakes… this is MY town, honey.  Got it???


Bar Brawl in Dominican Republic… Namin’ Names

Didn’t we all know that there had to be a Joo-dice involved in the bar fight that took place in the Dominican Republic…

Sidahn, Tree… I’m just gonna break his arm… or maybe his leg… you’re right, Tree, I’ll go after the neck…


From New Jersey to the Dominican Republic, Real Housewives of New Jersey house hubby Joe Giudice just can’t escape trouble with the law.  Radaronline has obtained exclusive new details about who was involved in the bar fight  —  and hauled away by police  —  while the cast was on vacation late last month for the upcoming season of the hit Bravo show.

A late night bar brawl led to Teresa Giudice’s burly hubby being detained by police along with Caroline Manzo’s sons Albert Jr. (known on the show as Albie) and Christopher, and their roommate Gregory Bennett.

Teresa Giudice Joe Manzo kids Dominican Republic Real Housewives of New Jersey I just felt something warm on my leg… did you pee in the pool, Christopher? Uh, nooo...  Awww, Joe…

According to our source, all the cast members partied at their hotel bar at about 1 am on February 23 at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, including:  Caroline and her husband Albert, Jacqueline and Chris Laurita, Teresa and Joe Giudice, newcomers Kathy and Richy Wakile, Joey and Melissa Gorga, the Manzo children (Chris, Albie, and Lauren) and roommate Gregory Bennett.

According to police, they don’t know who started the fight, but our source says that after the New Jersey clan popped open a bottle of champagne which accidentally sprayed on surrounding patrons, it led to the bar brawl with other male patrons.  “Everyone was involved. It became a massive scene,” the source told

But it turned physical with about eight people involved, said police when contacted by, including Joe, Albie, Christopher and Gregory, who were defending the women.  “Usually when there’s a fight we take one guy, but this time we took everybody,” the police representative said.

Danielle did it… Danielle started the bar fight, Andy…  But Danielle wasn’t in the Dominican Republic… OH… Well then YOU started the bar fight, Andy…

According to our source, Joe was “beating on the guy” and struck a male patron with glass.  Police said the patrons injured made the complaint to police.  According to police in the Dominican Republic, the two injured “victims” were Americans Adolfo Arriolla, who had a fracture in his arm, and Jason Gomez, who had a fracture in his leg and scratches on his face. Others involved had bruises.

When authorities arrived, Arriolla and Gomez, along with Joe, Albie, Christopher and Gregory were detained and taken to the police station where their passports were seized, said our source.  Local attorneys came in to smooth over the situation.  The cast was scheduled to fly home  Thursday, February 24 and everyone left on time except for those who were questioned by police.  Teresa also stayed behind to be with her husband. (Oh, Juicy had to love that!)

Tree, you can go home wit da Manzos… please, Tree, get on the plane… I’m beggin’ you, Tree… get on the plane!

Those involved were detained until the afternoon of Wednesday, February 23 when a verbal agreement was reached between all parties and no charges were filed, according to police.  Our source added that they were under supervision at the Hard Rock Hotel until they returned home days later on Sunday, February  27.

As Real Housewives of New Jersey fans will be aware, this isn’t the first time Joe has seen the inside of a police station or taken part in a public fight.  Just last year he served eight days of a 10-day sentence after turning himself into New Jersey police for driving on a suspended license, as first reported.

Joe Joodice, the hot-headed Italian also got into a physical brawl with brother-in-law, Joey Gorga, at a baptism reception surrounded by friends and family.

CAROLINE MANZO: Prince Albie Manzo… Albie Got A Job!!!… Sellin’ Black Water Crap… BLK…

March 10, 2011  2:00 pm

Albie’s got a job (sung to Janie’s Got a Gun)!

No, he is not sitting on the New Jersey Supreme Court and no, he is not patroling the Franklin Lakes metro area in his squad car and for God’s sake, he is not party plannin’ at the Brownstone!   Albie Manzo, the eldest son of the Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Caroline Manzo, has been chosen to represent a beverage.

                                Albie and Chris Manzo… “Get to your book learnin’ now, Chris… I got an important job now and can’t be playin’ witchu any more…”

In celebration of this miraculous event, all gathered at Kiss and Fly in NYC’s Meatpacking District for the launch party of this non-alcoholic libation… everyone was there, in fact, someone close to this crowd told me that it was the RHONJ‘s season wrap party.  Well, why not launch a liquid refreshment and sponsor the wrap party at the same time? Genius!

Caroline will pose in front of blk water, but that’s about it…. don’t make me drink that stuff…

So, what thirst quencher will we be seeing Albie carrying around, gushing about and guzzling at every opportunity?  Well… it’s this really, really great stuff called blk.  blk is spring water infused with fulvic acid… and it’s black.  What is fulvic acid?  Fulvic acid has proven to be the most powerful organic poly-electrolyte antioxidant and free-radical scavenger known to man, serving to balance cell life… and obviously turns any liquid into a black colored cocktail… YUM!  Good luck with that, Albie…

Saratoga Springs Sidelined…

The following is posted as a warning public service for all of you who arranged to be at the Vapor Night Club in Saratoga Springs from 8 to 10 p.m. on Thursday, March 10 ….  So sorry to break the news to you, but your plans to mix and mingle with Teresa and Caroline, along with Albie and Chris, all from the Real Housewives of New Jersey have been CANCELLED!

Jersey Housewives at Vapor

But, good news… If you paid for your tickets, the casino is bending the rules and will give you a full refund.  Your $12 or $15 will be credited to your account ASAP.

Now, let’s break this down and try to figure out why this festive bash, which included a diamond necklace giveaway for those who stuck around after the Manzo/Joo-dice’s took off at 10 pm, was scrubbed.   There are a few theories as to why this event fell through…

No-shows at Vapor

…they did not pre-sell enough tickets to make it attractive enough for Tree, Caroline and her offspring to show up for two hours… at $12 or $15 per ticket, they needed to pre-sell a lot of tickets and the promoters probably thought that the ‘cute and cuddly’ Manzo boys would have the 21 to 30-year-old target crowd rushing to buy tickets, but that didn’t happen.  This proves that the majority of people don’t think that the Manzo ‘boys’ are that cute and cuddly… that’s why Vapor had to throw Tree and Caroline in the mix, but people don’t want to buy tickets to see them, either.

Too cute… uh, really… who thinks that??

…the trip to Punta Cana was marred by the altercation with the drunk in the bar who was assaulted by Tree either Caroline or Tree… this we know.   However, (and this is confidential information) all parties involved in the bar fight are being held by the Dominican Republic police until the man, whose skull was busted, has recovered enough to talk, so they cannot be in two places at one time and are still sunning at the Hard Rock in Punta Cana…

She did it!!!

…Juicy wanted to come along. Tree wanted to have a girl’s night out and relive the Punta Cana evening with Caroline, but Juicy can’t sell enough pizzas to cover Tree’s ever-growing legal fees.  Juicy phoned Vapor and told them that he has to escort Tree… Vapor immediately put out the cancellation notice.

Juicy getting ready to go to Vapor…

Vapor Nightclub even tried to give tickets away, but no one wanted  them…



Real Housewives of New Jersey: The Punta Cana Predicament

The Hard Rock all-inclusive Resort in Punta Cana… Caroline and Big Albie, third from right on the beach

The accommodations for the Real Housewives of New Jersey,  the Hard Rock Hotel Resort in the Dominican Republic:

“The massive complex of 121 acres, boasting more swimming pools than you can count on two hands and almost as many theme clubs and lounges, soft opens to guests on November 1, 2010, with it’s official grand opening coming next spring.   It’s an all-inclusive resort, of course, even though it’s the first all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel. There’ll be photobooths and live performances all over the place, just be sure to budget for some extra playing in the “Vegas-style casino,” which will have 457 slots and 40 tables.  Enough of the public stuff…what do the actual rooms have?  Well, there’ll be “priceless” music memorabilia all over the darn place, and more so in the villas and Rockstar suites. In the latter, you don’t get a fish tank in your room; you get a jellyfish tank. And don’t forget the mandatory baby grand piano, custom pool table and outdoor fire pits. “


                                     Guess who smashed the guy’s head in with a bar glass??

So, which Housewife got into a heated argument with a male patron at the Hard Rock Resort lounge, hit him over the head with a bar glass and sent him to the hospital?   It’s been verified that there were two Housewives seen at the bar at the time of the incident:  Caroline Manzo and Tree Joo-dice.  Out of the two of them, which one would be the most likely to commit this act of aggression?  Well, I’m not naming names in this specific incident, but I’d like to see Tree go ballistic again.   Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers expect to see Tree go ca-razy at least once per season!

In the upcoming season, it’s been revealed that Tree got into it with her brother, Joe Gorga and his wife, the newest cast member of RHONJ, Melissa, at their son’s christening party and that alone would have filled the requirement for her once-a-season flip out, but this latest explosion gets my vote for the one to see.  Why?

                                                                                                         So sweet and nice… and if you fall for that, you’re a moronic idiot…

Let me gift you with a reasonable scenario:  Tree and Caroline are having nightcaps in the lounge before calling it a night.  Another guest of the Punta Cana Hard Rock Resort is doing the same.  They’ve all been in the lounge enjoying their cocktails, and as it’s an all-inclusive resort, the cocktails continue to replenish.  While enjoying the atmosphere and his drinks, the gentleman is trying to place where he’s seen the two women who are seated across the club room.  After his fourth straight scotch, he realizes that these two are from that show that his wife watches.  Being the gentleman that he is, he asks the server to take them a drink and introduces himself and the women invite him to sit at their table.  The three of them are having a wonderful conversation and as he is finishing up his fifth scotch, more pictures are swirling in his head; he can see the two women in various scenes from the TV show that his wife makes him watch and he can hear the scenes play out while he’s carrying on conversation.

                                                    ‘scuse me!  Do not talk about that bankruptcy stuff …

Right in the middle of Caroline talking about how Albie will be matriculating at Harvard Law School in 2020, the guy asks Tree if she’s the one who had the stuff in her house up for auction, how much did she get for all her crap and isn’t the guy that got screwed out of all that money by her husband also named Joe?

 What he saw right before she clobbered him over da head and he went down… poor guy!

Tree was livid, but just smiled her usual goofy smile and answered in her little baby voice that nothing in her house was sold and all of that is behind her now.  Caroline is still talking about Albie gettin’ into Harvard and how great an attorney he’s gonna be when the guy asks Tree if all of that stuff is true about her husband… that he now makes pizza and lives above the pizza shop with some chick named Tara and their little boy. WHOMP!!!

The guy didn’t know what hit him; he’s on the floor and Tree’s voice has changed back to her normal man-like gutteral yell and is screaching at him that none of that is true and how did he know about Tara; she’s standing over him ready to finish him off with a broken glass aimed right at his jugular when Caroline grabs Tree’s hand and shakes the glass to the floor, just missing the guy’s neck.  The server watched it all and calls for help… Tree and Caroline snake out of the lounge and get to their rooms.

                                                              Don’t ever say ‘Tara’ again…ever… ever… ever… ever.  Let me catch my breath.  OK.  Ever… ever… ever… ever… ever… ever…

Here’s the interesting teeny-tiny tidbit that I hadn’t heard before:  the entire scene was caught on camera! I just hope that Bravo doesn’t ummm… maybe accidentally erase the altercation or decide not to air it because of some ridiculous ‘liability’ dispute or because it’s part of an ongoing lawsuit or some frippy excuse such as that.   Can’t wait to see it…

Real Housewives of New Jersey… Who’s Tara???

NOTE:  The following schedule for the Real Housewives of New Jersey was taken from wikipedia; therefore, it’s probably not the actual schedule, nor the actual show titles.  As reader ‘HousewifeHater’ pointed out, it’s highly unlikely that Bravo would schedule the RHONJ to air on a Saturday.  I’m keeping the post, as it’s a creative wiki list and I still want to know about Tara… IMO, Tara is the reason that Tree went ballistic on Danielle over ‘BREAKING UP’ her family before she lunged at Danielle on the reunion show.

Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga, the RHONJ newbies…

Jackie, Tree, Danielle/Beverly/Angela (didn’t she leave?), Dina and Caroline

The episode list for Season Three of the Real Housewives of New Jersey has just been published on wikipedia (not very reliable):

Season 3: Episode List:

1. Welcome Back New and Old Housewives! May 7, 2011

2. Teresa Has Had Enough. May 14, 2011

3. Danielle Is Out. May 21, 2011

4. Happy Days, Sad Days. May 28, 2011

5. Jacqueline Says Goodbye? June 4, 2011

6. Kim G. Steps In– June 18, 2011

7. Paris is Like Jersey- June 25, 2011

8. Snooki Has Game- June 25, 2011

9. Fourth of July, Winter of July. July 2, 2011

10. Step In, Step Out, Take A Run- July 9, 2011

11. So You Think You Can’t Salsa?- July 16, 2011

12. Pay For Jay- July 23, 2011

13. Joe Pays for Tara’s Game- July 30, 2011

14. Deena Had Game- August 6, 2011

The episode title summarizes the show, and there aren’t really any big doings until episode #5,  Jacqueline Says Goodbye? Does this mean that Jackie is exiting the show?  Permanently?  The following episode’s title, Kim G. Steps In, could mean that Kim G. will be advanced to being more than the ‘Gladys Kravitz’  of the show??  Numbers 8 and 14, Snooki Has Game and Deena Had Game are making it clear that the RHONJ did a cross-over show with Jersey Shore.  Why?

Lucky #13 is the show that hopefully explains the big mystery that has been floating around the Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Joe ‘Juicy’ Joo-dice for the past couple of years… that he has a child… a little boy that was born to his (alleged) side girlfriend, Tara G (or Tara D).

Andy trying to contain Tree… fail!

This is the reason that Tree got all up in Andy’s face and shoved him over to get to Danielle on the last reunion show and then got all up in Danielle’s face and screamed at her, “Do not break up my family!”

The nephew that Tree wants everyone to believe she went ballistic over…fail!

Tree immediately made the rounds of any talk show that would take her to explain that she actually said, “Do not BRING up my family!” Puh-leeze, Treetrunk, pay attention to yourself!  Go back and listen very carefully to the tape of the reunion (as I did) and you will hear yourself very clearly saying, “Do not BREAK up my family!” Danielle is a little sneak and knows a lot about the Franklin Lakes and Montville ladies and Danielle definitely hit a nerve with Tree at last season’s reunion show for Tree to react as she did.

One of the many comments re Tara:

Anonymous said…   “I want to tell you that I live here in the same town as Tara (Joe’s sicilian sidedish)and I can’t take another second of this.

Joe & Tara (or Beppe and Petit) have been together for a while. I spoke with her friend Alex who said they are all disgusted and surprised at the relationship. Tara comes from a wealthy and well connected family. Her father is a crazy sicilian.

Anyway,they meet up in Long Beach Island at her beach house and it’s easier to meet up now that Teresa is away a lot (like this weekend in Vegas)
Teresa: where was Joe the night of the christening? And the night you came back from Italy. He left the house and you know it, to “check on the pizza place” yeah right!
Joe is a jealous lunatic when it comes to Tara F (not G) she gorgeous, so what the hell is she doing with a broke loser her friends ask? It’s sexual supposedly.

She tweets to him in italian so he can keep tabs on her (again, because he’s jealous) Alexandra said when she posted her photo on her twitter he flipped out because he said if people find it “everyone will want to get in your pants and I’m going to go apeshit”
she hasn’t taken the photo down, but wrote on it to him .

According to her friend she secretly tweets under:   petiteposie

Also according to her friend, Joe is leaving Teresa asap. He can’t stand the cameras and press. He just wants to live quietly. Teresa is a fame whore and 15 minutes is up. Tara told her she’ll never come forward because she’s afraid of her family. ”

We’ll have to wait until July 30 to find out if Tara is the Tara everyone’s been talking about…

Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Housewives…

A man was hospitalized after a glass was allegedly smashed on his head during a bar brawl involving several cast members from the Real Housewives Of New Jersey. The incident happened in the Dominican Republic where the reality stars and their partners were enjoying an adults only holiday. According to reports two of the cast members were sitting at the bar in the Hard Rock Hotel when they got into a heated argument with a male patron.

Scene of the crime: The Hard Rock Hotel in Dominican Republic

The discussion escalated and allegedly resulted in someone smashing a glass over a man’s head.  His injuries were so severe that he required immediate medical attention.

It is unknown which of the cast mates were involved in the alleged dispute.   No one knows for sure which housewives were involved, although sightings of Teresa and Caroline at the Hard Rock Bar that night have been reported.

Rage issues: During the first season Teresa Guidice flipped out at a ladies lunch tipped over the table

RHONJ… Enough Already!!!

RHONY… We went to Morroco…

We all know that the Real Housewives of New York spent a few weeks in Morocco… and now the Real Housewives of New Jersey have been shipped off to the Dominican Republic for their show.

RHONJ… Hey, Miss Andy, where do we get to go?  Paris?  San Remo?  Monte Carlo? You’re going to the Dominican Republic and you’ll like it…

The producers of the HWs franchises are killing this storyline.  It was first done when SJP and the rest of the Sex and The City cast took off for Morroco.  Did we need to see it again?  Uh.. No. But apparently the Real Housewives of New York felt it necessary to copy SATC and ship off everyone to ‘been-there-done-that’ Morroco.  Then Caroline, Tree and Jackie must have had a fit when they learned that the RHONY got a vay-cay that needed a passport, so to keep them from shiving the producers, they were shipped off the the Dominican Republic. IMO, the Real Housewives of Miami was a sign that the Housewives, Miss Andy and Bravo had jumped the shark by throwing more and different Housewives shows at us… however, sending the Housewives off to various ‘exotic’ locations is a sign that not only have they jumped the shark, but that the Housewives are crawling to a slow cable death. The big question is:  Will we all watch these Housewives slowly die and which one will take it’s last breath first?


The Real Housewives Of New Jersey are ditching their parkas for bikinis in tropical Dominican Republic.  Leaving the frigid east coast weather behind, has exclusively learned that the ladies of Franklin Lakes-TeresaCarolineJacqueline, and newcomers Melissa Gorga and Kathy Wakile— left for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic over the weekend for a family vacation with their house hubbies.

“All the housewives and husbands took off on Sunday for Punta Cana,” said our source. “It’s a fun trip with friends and family.”  The reality stars also said goodbye to their kids for the week-long relaxing couple’s-only getaway.  And fans of the hit Bravo show will hopefully see all the fun in the sun because it’s that’s being filmed for the upcoming season.
