Melissa Tells the Gang Joe Will Do Anything on a Dare on 'Real Housewives NJ' (VIDEO)

Joe Gorga, 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'Do you think Melissa knew what she was doing when she told everyone at the house that her husband Joe will do anything if dared? We suspect she was hoping someone would throw out something outrageous, and that's exactly what happened on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' (Sun., 10PM ET on Bravo).

Joe was asked to switch outfits with Jacqueline, and she was game for it. And then he came out and looked either absolutely ridiculous or perfectly dressed for a high-flying trapeze act.

"Am I supposed to put that back on when his balls are flopping in there?" Jacqueline asked as Joe danced around. Then, when he was asked to do a high kick, he obliged yet again. Now Jacqueline has even more to worry about going on inside that outfit.

Guidice's Love Life as Conversation Topic on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Jun 27th 2011 3:09AM
'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'Something happens when you've been friends with people for a long time. Suddenly, one day you find yourself talking about things openly with them and in front of them that you've hardly talked about with yourself. Teresa and Jacqueline experienced that on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' (Sun., 10PM ET on Bravo) when talk turned to intimacy with their husbands.

Apparently, Teresa is not as good at the oral service as Jacqueline. Maybe it was the drinks. At first, Teresa seemed to be taking the news well enough, telling Jacqueline, "You gotta give me pointers."

Later, though, she turned on Joe a bit. "I'm really insulted. You better say sorry to me."

But Joe had no idea why. He was just being honest. "While you're doing it I tell you your good, but I lied." Maybe he'd have been better of to continue lying about this.

Teresa and Her Brother Joe Finally Talk on 'Real Housewives of New Jersey' (VIDEO)

Joe & Teresa Guidice, 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'Teresa Guidice may still see her brother Joe's wife Melissa as a gold digger on 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' (Sun., 10PM ET on Bravo), but that doesn't mean she won't try and mend fences with her. Not for Melissa's sake, but so she and Joe can get back on better terms.

She opened this week's episode by having a sit-down lunch with Joe where she tried to get past the enormous emotional walls he put up. She found a crack in his defenses when she asked him if he wanted to have regrets should their ailing father not pull through.

"Call my wife and you work it out with your mother and my wife, because you're the one that's involved," Joe told Teresa. As determined as she is to mend this relationship, Teresa set out to do just that.

Teresa and Joe GiudiceMore trouble for some of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' cast: They're being sued by a police officer for alleged assault. Two lawsuits have been issued relating to an alleged brawl in the Dominican Republic earlier this year.

Adolfo Arreola, a law enforcement officer at the University of Illinois in Chicago, alleges that he suffered a broken arm, cuts, bruises and had blurred vision after members of the 'Housewives' cast "savagely beat, kicked, punched, scratched" and cracked a glass over his head during an altercation that began with Teresa Giudice in a Hard Rock Hotel & Casino bar in Punta Cana on Feb. 23.

According to the 'Chicago Tribune', the police officer's cousin, Jason A. Gomez, also alleges he suffered a broken leg while trying to help out Arreola.

Jersey 'Housewives' Are Coming Back May 3

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 26th 2010 10:47AM
real_housewives_of_new_jersey_standingIn anticipation of the new season of 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey,' the restaurateurs in the Franklin Lakes vicinity have decided to anchor all dining tables to the floor like McDonald's and Burger King. That way, Teresa can't be doing any table-flipping unless she's wearing a cape with a giant 'S' in red and has an aversion to Kryptonite.

No seriously -- and table-flipping is hardly that -- those Jersey women are coming back. Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey' returns Monday, May 3 at 10 PM ET. And unlike some editions of the 'Real Housewives,' all the principals are part of the action.

Andy Cohen on Jersey Housewives, 'Top Chef,' and Being the Face of Bravo

by Joel Keller, posted Mar 18th 2010 2:02PM
Andy Cohen of BravoWhen NBC Universal had their all-star party at the January press tour, I got a chance to talk to Andy Cohen of Bravo. Who's Andy Cohen? Many of you who follow Bravo's reality shows may know him as "the reunion guy," who hosts all the reunion shows at the end of each season. Others may know him from the talk show 'Watch What Happens Live,' which debuted last summer and discusses the week in the world of Bravo and beyond.

But Cohen has a day job: as the network's senior vice president of original programming and development, he's largely been responsible for bringing shows like 'Top Chef,' 'Project Runway,' 'Flipping Out,' 'The Real Housewives' series and others to the network. So he's the perfect guy to talk to about the mishegas going on with the Jersey Housewives as they shoot their second season, fluky edits on the finale of 'Top Chef,' and whatever he could say about the Salahis, who crashed a White House dinner while being recruited for 'The Real Housewives of D.C.' Our talk is after the jump.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Nine on-air breakdowns

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 15th 2009 11:00AM
Glenn BeckOn the ninth day of Festivus, TV gave to me... nine on-air breakdowns.

Director Alfred Hitchcock once said, "Television has done much for psychiatry by spreading information about it, as well as contributing to the need for it."

Yes, having a camera stuck in your face for an hour or more a day must take a toll on your sanity. Your privacy is virtually limited. Your every move is scrutinized and criticized by faceless meanies. Your therapist is one session away from owning his own fishing trawler.

It's only a matter of time before the grasp of sanity is clipped away like a loose thread on a homemade snowman sweater and you turn into a blubbering, snotty, incoherent mess for all the world to enjoy. These are the personalities who lost it and may or may not have gained whatever "it" is back.

The Twelve Days of Festivus: Twelve shows a'stinkin'!

HeroesOn the twelfth day of Festivus, TV gave to me ... twelve shows a'stinkin'!

Being the endless wasteland that it is, television has no shortage of bad product. Mind you, "bad" is always a matter of opinion. This year saw the end of According to Jim after eight years of decent ratings while in terms of quality it lasted about seven years too long. What follows is my own opinion and at the end of each item in the list, I will quote everybody's favorite critic, Jay Sherman.

12. Heroes – This show was great in the first season, then with only brief glimpses of greatness in the later seasons, the writers and the network proceeded to dump it in the trash, rub it around some sewage and finally make it have a one night stand with Andy Dick. IT STINKS!

Hair-Pulling Drama Hits 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey'

by Amy Kuperinsky, posted Dec 4th 2009 4:15PM
Danielle StaubProviding a clue of what's to come in the second season of Bravo's 'The Real Housewives of New Jersey,' star Danielle Staub, the center of much of the drama last season, says another housewife's daughter pulled her (fake) hair out by the (fake) roots.

According to The Record newspaper of Bergen and Passaic counties in NJ, where much of the reality series is filmed, Staub filed a complaint in municipal court in Wayne, NJ, alleging that during a fight at a country club last month, Ashley Holmes, 19, pulled one of Staub's hair extensions out. Holmes is the daughter of Jacqueline Laurita, another housewife on the show who had previously demonstrated a friendship with Staub despite pressure from her husband's family -- including housewife sisters Caroline Manzo and Dina Manzo -- to cut ties with Staub.

Staub -- who arrived in court yesterday with three friends and Bravo cameras -- was the main event last season when it was revealed, via an uncovered old book penned by an ex-boyfriend, that she reportedly had a questionable past, including another name and an arrest on what she said were false charges.

MTV's Jersey Shore: yet another chance to laugh at the Garden State

by Joel Keller, posted Nov 11th 2009 7:06PM
As much as I loved The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I knew that I was loving it for all the wrong reasons. I'm New Jersey all the way: born here, went to college here, have lived here all my life. About ten percent of the people I've met fit the yelling, lunkheaded Jersey stereotypes we've seen on TV since The Sopranos; what I don't understand is where reality TV's recent fascination has been with the louder residents of the Garden State.

First it was Housewives. Then it was Cake Boss, where Buddy Valastro and his crew scream and gesture so much it's a wonder how their cakes don't collapse in the oven. Even TLC's relatively gentle Masters of Reception seemed to highlight the more "Jersey" aspects of my home state.

Now we have Jersey Shore, an MTV reality series premiering December 3. It documents goings on last summer in a shore house with the "hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos," according to this particularly annoying promo:

teresa_joe_guidice_bravoIf you can, imagine Fran Fine from The Nanny saying these words, "Oh my gawd..." because that's the voice in my head when I read that Real Housewives' Teresa Guidice is losing her New Jersey mansion to foreclosure.

The table-flipping mother of four, who was shown moving into the palatial, marble-laden manse during the first season of Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey, is behind in her mortgage and DLJ Mortgage Capital filed papers in Superior Court of New Jersey this week to begin foreclosure.

Now, this could be as simple as Bethenny is moving on to star in her own show as was announced. However, there are rumors that in the few episodes she's done for the new season of Real Housewives, Bethenny has been feuding with the other ladies.

Seven shows that need funny commentators more than American Idol

by Danny Gallagher, posted Sep 22nd 2009 11:05AM
Ellen DeGeneresAmerican Idol's choice of Ellen DeGeneres as a judge replacement threw everyone for a loop, even schlubs like me who don't watch the show.

It's not that she's not talented, successful or funny. It's just an odd choice, putting a comedian on the show that takes its goal of crushing losers' dreams on live television so seriously. It would evoke the same reaction from me if they picked Andrew "Dice" Clay as the new judge, if the Diceman was talented, successful or funny.

And besides, why do they need humor and comedy on such an otherwise serious show? There are lots of humorless, vapid and downright boring shows that are crying out for comedic interjection.
