Here's a Compilation of 'Real Housewives' Singing Without Autotune

Being part of the Real Housewives franchise gives women the opportunity to promote their various products, land book deals, and, weirdly, launch music careers. However, that doesn't mean that they can sing, as evidenced by these raw moments, captured on camera, in which they're laying down vocal tracks in the booth,… » 10/01/13 6:30pm 10/01/13 6:30pm

Melissa Gorga Can't Believe Anyone Would Think Her Book Advocates Rape

Real Housewife turned great American author Melissa Gorga thinks it's just "disgusting" that some people think her new book is promoting marital rape. Marital rape is just, like, subtext. Why don't you learn some reading comprehension, internet? Melissa Gorga has nothing but contempt for your dismal SAT scores. » 9/28/13 11:15am 9/28/13 11:15am

'Real Housewife' Melissa Gorga's New Book Advocates Marital Rape

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga has written an advice book, Love Italian Style, for people who want a marriage as hot and happy as the one she has with her husband Joe. Her entire ethos on the subject boils down to this sentence: "Husbands want their wives to submit; wives want our husbands to… » 9/24/13 1:00pm 9/24/13 1:00pm

Real Housewives of NJ Producer Reveals Just How Far Reality TV Will Go…

What started as a supposed revelation of one New Jersey Housewife's alleged stripper past has turned into a larger scandal, with the rest of the cast accusing Teresa Giudice of setting her up. Of course it was a setup. They're on reality TV. But why aren't they pointing their fingers at the show's producers, who… » 9/24/12 7:00pm 9/24/12 7:00pm

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey Reunion, Part 1: 'The Teresa Giudice…

Come one, come all to the Teresa Giudice Show! RHONJ's most delusional housewife was on the offensive during last night's reunion, pitting the rest of the cast — including two of her actual family members — against the Fabulicious author. As you've come to expect, the entire special was an hour-long cat fight, but… » 10/17/11 4:35pm 10/17/11 4:35pm

In An Intellectual Battle Between The Jersey Housewives, We All Lose

Last night's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey followed the housewives and their respective families on an exotic vacation in the Dominican Republic. The crew stayed in Punta Cana, which, obviously, the producers chose based on the number of jokes they expected the Manzo boys to make about the name. » 10/03/11 5:10pm 10/03/11 5:10pm

Housewives' Joe Gorga Really Knows How To Talk About Arabs

Real Housewives of New Jersey's Melissa and Joe Gorga were guests on Watch What Happens Live last night where Joe—Teresa Giudice's brother—was asked a question about a comment made by his cousin's husband, Richie, a man of Lebanese descent.

Jersey Housewife Exposed To Poisonous Semen

Was anyone else totally uncomfortable with Joe Gorga's expressions of his sexuality on last night's episode? It's unclear if the no-sex-for-four-days subplot was the real deal or simply a machination on the part of the couple to make them appear endearing, but either way, it came off as crass and inappropriate » 5/31/11 4:13pm 5/31/11 4:13pm

Somehow Teresa Giudice Is The Sensible Jersey Housewife

Seeing how much of a mess this season is turning out to be for the Giudices and the Gorgas, it's easy to see why Teresa was resistant to adding her sister-in-law Melissa to the cast. Reality TV cameras very rarely serve to diffuse tension, and in fact, tend to do the opposite. The fact that the drama is happening… » 5/24/11 1:46pm 5/24/11 1:46pm

Violence, Weeping Men, & Lizzie Grubman Star In RHONJ Premiere

Danielle Staub who? Seriously, that lady will not be missed (although, you can still see plenty of her at Scores, where she's now a stripper). Including Teresa's brother Joey, his wife Melissa, and their first cousin Kathy was the best casting decision Bravo could have possibly made. (Not to mention Kathy's husband… » 5/17/11 10:50am 5/17/11 10:50am
