‘RHONJ’ Trailer: Teresa Giudice & Joe Gorga Engage In Epic Feud As Cheating Rumors Surface

The new trailer for season 11 of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ features an intense yelling match between Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga, plus more drama for the ladies! Check it out here!

Things are about to get explosive! The Real Housewives of New Jersey trailer for season 11 debuted and there’s plenty for longtime fans of the Bravo series to look forward to. This season promises to be unlike any other, with accusations of infidelity, family drama, and plenty of yelling matches — notably between Teresa Giudice and her brother, Joe Gorga.

The trailer opens with an ominous exchange between Margaret Josephs and Melissa Gorga. “Everyone’s marriage can look absolutely perfect on the outside,” Margaret says, before Melissa’s voice can be heard saying, “But guess what? Things aren’t always what they seem.” At that point, Dolores Catania interjects, “Anyone can be a cheater.”

Cheating becomes a major theme of the season, and it looks like it’s the main conflict between Joe and Melissa. “Last night, the owner of the restaurant asked Melissa for her number,” Teresa says of her sister-in-law. “They’ve been texting all day,” her voiceover can be heard, as footage of Melissa looking at her phone and smiling from ear to ear is shown. But that’s not even the most intense part of the trailer!

Joe Gorga discusses his former brother-in-law on ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ season 11 [Bravo].

Following a tense conversation between Joe and Melissa, the season’s biggest yelling match comes at the end of the trailer — and it looks like it’s between Joe and Teresa! As its revealed that Joe Giudice, Teresa’s now ex-husband, has seemingly been talking about Joe Gorga behind his back, things reach a complete boiling point during a family dinner.

Teresa Giudice is totally shocked by what her brother says on ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ season 11 [Bravo].

“You’re going to defend him?” Teresa’s brother shouts at her. “F**k that piece of s**t. He put my mother in a f**king grave. Do you understand that?” It’s an incredibly tense moment between the two that leaves Teresa practically speechless. There’s so much more in store for the ladies of RHONJ, and fans don’t have to wait long to see everything play out in the upcoming season!

Mark your calendars, The Real Housewives of New Jersey returns to Bravo for its 11th season on February 17 at 9 pm ET.

‘RHONJ’ Alum Jacqueline Laurita Shades Melissa Gorga: I Don’t Get Her ‘Purpose On The Show’

‘RHONJ’ alum Jacqueline Laurita sat down for a tell-all interview with fan account Bravo After Thoughts, and gave her honest opinion on Melissa Gorga and the other stars on the Bravo show.

Jacqueline Laurita, 50, didn’t hold back while giving her honest thoughts on the current cast of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, which she left after Season 7. This led Jacqueline to shade Melissa Gorga, 41, despite giving compliments to the other cast members during her Q&A interview with the Bravo After Thoughts fan account.

“I don’t really know Melissa’s purpose on the show,” Jacqueline admitted during the interview, which was uploaded on Nov. 23. Shen then tried to soften her diss by adding that Melissa “looks good.” Meanwhile, Jacqueline said Jackie Goldschneider is “very smart and intelligent,” Jennifer Aydin is “funny and over the top,” Margaret Josephs is “funny” and “holds her own,” while Teresa Giudice is “Teresa — Teresa’s always good TV.” Jacqueline did admit that she thinks Teresa is “a little subdued now,” though. She also added that she “like[s]” Dolores Catania.

Jacqueline did have criticism for the entire cast, though. “I think everybody is pretty much aware of the cameras now and they kind of know what the deal is with the show, and what kind of drama to bring,” Jacqueline confessed. “I feel like some people aren’t always themselves and I feel like a lot of people play to the camera.”

Jacqueline has never been one to keep her opinions a secret. She infamously slammed Teresa — who is also the sister-in-law of Melissa — for “choosing the show over her marriage” with Joe Giudice, whom she split from in 2019. “Teresa never really takes accountability for things she does in her life. It’s very hard for her to do that. It always has been. She’s a narcissist, sociopath,” Jacqueline said on her podcast The LookOver Ladies in Nov. 2019, shortly after Joe had moved to Italy after serving his prison sentence for fraud charges.

Melissa hasn’t hid her thoughts on Jacqueline, either. Before Jacqueline left the show in 2017, Melissa wrote in a 2016 think piece for Bravo, “Jacqueline  is someone who needs a ridiculous amount of control. And when she doesn’t have it, she either gets crazy or runs away and then goes off the grid to plan and scheme. Just look back at every conflict she’s ever had on the show.”

‘RHONJ’s Gia Giudice, 19, Rocks Crop Top & $2K YSL Bag While Reuniting With Dad Joe In Italy — See Pics

Gia Giudice has reunited with her dad in Italy for the first time in almost a year, and has shared new happy snaps with Joe and her younger sis Milania.

Teresa Giudice‘s mini-me daughter Gia, 19, has reunited with her dad Joe, 48, in Italy. The teenager, who is joined by her younger sis Milania, 14, arrived in Europe on November 6, to see their father for the first time in months. Despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the duo opted to see their travel plans through and appear to be making the most of their family time. In a stunning new snap, the eldest child of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star rocked a white crop top with high-waisted, light wash jeans and a beige puffer coat.

Much like her mom, she’s no stranger to designer accessories, carrying a gold YSL shoulder bag with chain detailing, which retails for around $2000. Her boot cut jeans fell just above her brown, suede booties as she accessorized with gold necklaces and styled her caramel tresses in loose waves. The carousel post also featured a family snap of Milania and Joe as the trio posed in front of a harbor in Salerno, Italy.

The sisters have been documenting their trip on Instagram, which has included shopping and dining in Rome, as well as hiking in Sala Cosilina, Campania. Social media savvy Joe has also been uploading a constant stream of photos and videos, showing his daughters around his native Italy. A source close to the family spoke to HollywoodLife about Teresa’s reaction to her daughters traveling without her. “Teresa spoke to Joe and the girls as soon as they landed to make sure they got there safely,” the insider explained.

“They know there are risks with traveling, but as a family, they decided it was okay to go. The plan right now is to be there for about 10 days or 2 weeks, but they are prepared to stay longer if they have to … Both parents knew the risks of them going, but the girls couldn’t bear being away from Joe any longer.” Prior to the trip, the girls hadn’t seen their father since last December. As fans of the Bravo reality television stars will know, Joe moved to the European country in October 2019, after his third deportation appeal was denied following a 41-month sentence for fraud.

Teresa Giudice’s eldest daughter Gia is in the Halloween spirit, and showed off her second look of the season — a couples costume with boyfriend Christian Carmichael.

The pair gave Bonnie and Clyde a modern twist, with Gia rocking a mini skirt reminiscent of the iconic Burberry print, along with a black crop top. “he’s the Clyde to my Bonnie,” she captioned the November 1 carousel post on Instagram. The eldest child of the Real Housewives of New Jersey star also accessorized with a black beret, a neck scarf, knee-high black boots, and a black Gucci shoulder bag.

Christian, who first appeared on Gia’s Instagram page in late July, opted for a classic look, wearing a white dress shirt and black slacks with suspenders. He got into character as he held a cigar up to his mouth and accessorized with a black fedora, black bow tie and a red belt. The pair also tucked a few bills into their clothes at the waist, referencing the iconic bank robbing duo.

This wasn’t Gia’s first look of the Halloween season. Just one day prior, she shared a stunning snap of herself in a DIY ensemble for night one of the celebrations. Gia opted to dress as a zombie, and rocked a barely-there two piece ensemble, including a bandeau top and a figure-hugging mini skirt designed to look like the grey and off-white bandages of a mummy.

Teresa Giudice & ‘RHONJ’ Co-Stars Stun In Mermaid, J.Lo & More Halloween Costumes While Filming

With over a week to go until Halloween, the cast of ‘RHONJ’ has just upped the bar for any other Housewives franchise when it comes to costumes. We’ve got their looks.

Everything is go big or go home when it comes to the women of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The Bravo stars just filmed their Halloween episode and are sharing photos in their amazing costumes with fans. Teresa Giudice looked like a confectionary treat, dressing as a stick of cotton candy. The 48-year-old wore a puffy pink tulle outfit that covered her mid-section, with a pink, blue and purple wig and a blue and white striped cotton candy wand attached to the top of her head.

“I’m the sweetest BITCH you’ll ever meet. tis the season … Are you a trick or a treat?” Teresa teased in the caption of the photo. Her ex-husband Joe Giudice sent his adoration from Italy, writing in the comments, “You look sweet.” In another picture that also showed her amazingly detailed makeup job by @priscilladistasio, Tre wrote, “I’m just here for the Cotton Candy.”

Tre’s sister in law Melissa Gorga, 41, made for a stunning mermaid. She wore a metallic gold fishnet-style one shoulder top that showed off her toned bare abs. Melissa paired it with a pink sequin mermaid style skirt with a few rips in it, courtesy of her husband Joe. He went as a mermaid fisherman, complete with a net. Melissa wrote in the caption of an IG picture of the two in costume, “He caught the mermaid.”

Jennifer Aydin, 43, paid tribute to another famous Jennifer, wearing a rendition of JLo‘s iconic green plunging Versace gown that the singer famously wore to the 2000 MTV VMAs. JLo later closed Versace’s Sept 2019 fashion show wearing a near replica of the dress, looking like a goddess at age 50. That was the look Aydin went for, big hair and all. Her husband Bill went as Prince, wearing a purple long duster and the late music god‘s trademark white ruffled shirt. He added a black curly wig to complete the look.

Dolores Catania crushed her costume, going as a sexy plastic surgery victim. “It hurts to be beautiful,” she wrote in the caption of her Instagram photo, showing her wearing bandages around her head, neck and other parts of her body. She added bloody red makeup to show breast implant scars and a face lift line atop her forehead. The 49-year-old has admitted to getting a few nips and tucks herself, but told her surgeons in the caption, “Don’t worry @drkarolak and @drjosephmichaels it’s just a costume.”

Margaret Josephs, 53, and Jackie Goldschneider, 44, went with couples costumes, bringing their significant others along to match in their Halloween fun. Margaret went as Morticia Addams while her husband Joe Benigno dressed as her husband Gomez Addams. Jackie and her husband Evan went old school as mid 70s music and TV icons Sonny and Cher.

Finally, show newcomer Michelle Pais already fits in perfectly with the rest of the cast, at least when it comes to creative Halloween costumes. The Signature Realty NJ founder’s husband Jonathan Steingraver dressed as late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, while Michelle went as Karl’s beloved fluffy white cat Choupette. Michelle donned a white wig and ears, along with a white faux-fur top and ice blue eye contacts to resemble the style icon’s pet. “I never thought I’d like cats, until I met choupette ~ Karl Lagerfeld,” Michelle added to her caption.

There have been reports that the Halloween party will be the season 11 finale for the Real Housewives of New Jersey, so fans might have to wait for awhile to see what went down while everyone was in costume. The season 11 premiere isn’t scheduled to air on Bravo until Feb. 2021. For now, the awesome costume looks will have to do for eager viewers.

Party-planner friend of ‘RHONJ’ star Teresa Giudice is sued

A mother has sued the party-planning friend of Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice, claiming that she hasn’t returned more than $33,000 intended for her son’s bar mitzvah. 

The lawsuit against Elvira Grau, her husband and their business partner, Andrew Zang, was filed this week after the alleged incident began in January 2019.

Barrie Granito, a single mother and Upper East Side real-estate agent, told Page Six that she paid Grau $35,510 to host a bar mitzvah for her young son.

But after the party was rescheduled – and eventually canceled – due to the coronavirus pandemic, Grau allegedly wouldn’t refund the money.

According to Page Six, Grau is friends with local TV celebrity Teresa Giudice and has made appearances on the long-running Bravo series. 

Grau, who owns Space New Jersey in Englewood, also organized events for Giudice.  

Granito said that she planned to hold her son’s special party at Grau’s newest Manhattan location, Space 54. 

‘I knew that Elvira was known in New Jersey for creating exciting parties, so I made an appointment and had a hard-hat tour [while Space 54] was still being built,’ Granito told Page Six. ‘I got really excited.’

Her mother’s dying wish, said Granito, was for her grandson to have a bar mitzvah.

‘I signed a contract, and I left a deposit of $7,500 for a May 15, 2020 party,’ Granito told Page Six. 

According to documents viewed by the publication, the contract detailed that ‘if Space 54 fails to comply … due to any event or act outside and beyond the scope of Space 54’s control, [venue] liability shall be limited to a refund of the deposit.’

Marc Held, Granito’s attorney, claimed that this meant all of the deposit money.

Granito and Grau, 50, agreed to a $40,000 deal that included several accommodations, including catering for 140 guests, a DJ, games, dancers, staff and equipment for the religious ceremony.

She paid all the deposits in cash and kept invoices of the transactions at Grau’s request, Page Six reports.

‘I didn’t really think about it. I just went along with everything,’ Granito told Page Six.

But then, Granito reportedly received a call from Grau in the second week of March, when the COVID-19 pandemic first strengthened its grip on the tri-state area.

‘I had just hand-delivered most of the invites and Elvira and [her husband and business partner] Jim called me and said, “Can you do us a big favor and give us $10,000? We’re going to be closing and we could really use the cash to pay our employees. We’re in a bind,”” Granito alleged Grau said. 

The bar mitzvah was still 12 weeks away at the time, but court filings viewed by Page Six alleged that Granito was ‘pressured’ to fast track the money because the Grau’s were ‘broke.’

‘I said, “I don’t have that money.” I had already paid $31,000 in cash,’ Granito said.

‘I’m so stupid. They made me feel terrible because they said they couldn’t afford to pay their staff, so I ran over there and gave Elvira’s assistant whatever I had available, which was $2,100.’

As the pandemic continued, the two parties reportedly agreed to postpone the bar mitzvah until October 23.

But as cases skyrocketed and deaths mounted, it became clear New York City wouldn’t return to normal any time soon.

So, Granito held her son’s bar mitzvah ceremony at home in May with a rabbi performing the service via Zoom call.  

Granito told Page Six that Grau offered to host the party in New Jersey, where party restrictions were lenient, but she asked for a refund instead.

Grau allegedly told Granito they would ‘talk later,’ but the mother claimed ‘later never happened and I haven’t heard from her since July.’

 The two reportedly had a brief interaction in August, but Granito said there was ‘dead silence’ afterwards.

‘I realized I’m not getting my money back,’ Granito told Page Six. Grau allegedly told a few party planner friends of Granito’s that she no longer had the money to refund. 

The lawsuit is seeking the money, as well as attorney fees and relief for her distress, Page Six reports. 

‘You can’t take money from Peter to pay Paul,’ Granito said. ‘I want my money back and I don’t want anyone else to suffer like I have.’

Attorney Evan Cowit, who represents the Graus family, denied the accusations to Page Six.

‘My clients have gone above and beyond to try and accommodate Ms. Granito. They believe that any claims she’s making are baseless and will vigorously defend themselves.’

Teresa Giudice: How The ‘RHONJ’ Star Feels About Ex-Husband Joe Dating In Italy

Teresa Giudice and her ex Joe Giudice, who finalized their divorce last month, ‘still talk daily’ after he revealed that he’s dating a lawyer in Italy.

Teresa Giudice, 48, has no hard feelings towards her now ex-husband Joe Giudice, 48, and “is really happy” for him, after he announced that he is now dating a lawyer in Italy on The Wendy Williams Show this week. The former husband and wife finalized their pending divorce last month and it seems like they’re all good about romantically moving on. “Teresa is really happy for Joe that he’s moving on with his life,” a source EXCLUISVELY told HollywoodLife. “There’s no bad blood between them and she wants him to be able to live a happy life.”

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star and her former love, with whom she shares daughters, Gia, 19, Gabriella, 16, Milania, 15, and Audriana, 11, are still in each other’s lives despite no longer being romantically involved, and Joe’s new relationship shouldn’t affect that. “They still talk daily and it’s always about the girls,” the source explained. “Their marriage was over for quite some time, so it’s not a total shock to her that he’s dating. The girls are OK with it as well and they’re happy their dad can spend time with someone.”

As far as Teresa’s own dating life, she’s open to meeting someone as well but is not currently dating one person. “She is having fun and going out and she’ll absolutely talk to a guy, but she’s not seeing any one person in particular,” the source confirmed. “Joe also knows she’s going to be dating and they really just want the other to be happy. The girls want to see their mom happy, too.”

During his recent appearance on The Wendy Williams Show, Joe, who’s been living in Italy after he was deported following a 41-month prison sentence for fraud in Pennsylvania, admitted “distance” is what led to his divorce with Teresa, who is still living in New Jersey with their daughters. “The distance and how’s it going to work? She’s over there [in New Jersey] I’m over here [in Italy],” he said.  “There’s no way it’s going to work no matter where I’m at. What am I going to do pull the kids out of school to come here? What are we doing to do with the kids? — It just won’t work,” he continued, before explaining the split “really wasn’t by choice. We fought and fought and fought.”

Joe is not sure if Italy will be his permanent residence as he waits for legal permission to go back to the U.S. but as of right now, there are “no plans” for him to see Teresa anytime soon, especially with the coronavirus pandemic going on. “There are no plans for them to see one another at this time and as soon as it’s safe, the girls will go visit,” the insider shared. “Joe is really limited as to where he can travel and with school and their activities, that comes first. They’re really hopeful they can figure it out soon, but right now it’s just a lot of FaceTime.”
