At 6 a.m. on Friday morning, a fleet of cars arrived at the Borgata Hotel in Atlantic City carrying the cast of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" to tape their reunion show. It wasn’t until 10 p.m. that same evening that the ladies finally emerged from the hotel, looking exhausted and not very happy.
Taping started with Teresa Giudice, Kathy Wakile and Melissa Gorga on one couch and Caroline Manzo and Jacqueline Laurita on the other. However, after Teresa refused to acknowledge the family members sitting behind her, literally turning her back on them, production staffers rearranged the cast.
“It was four against one, with Teresa being the odd one out. Everyone lost it, but it was Jaqueline's and Melissa’s response to Teresa bringing up accusations saying they were once strippers that started the biggest fights,” one insider tells me. “Caroline is so over Teresa that she couldn’t even be bothered to fight that hard. She raised her voice several times, but it was nothing compared to Jacqueline."
One of the funniest moments of the taping was when Caroline’s daughter, Lauren Manzo, picked random words from Teresa’s blog and asked her what they meant. Teresa’s responses caused many to laugh and wonder who actually writes her blog.
“Kathy went crazy when Teresa brought up her father that has passed away,” a cast member tells me. “Joe Giudice, Teresa's husband, said he paid dearly for calling his wife the 'C-word' on camera, after which he bought her new jewelry. But overall nothing new was said, and old stories were rehashed over and over again. Teresa even brought up old cast member Danielle Staub and her relationship with Melissa once again.”
“If it was bad between all the ladies and Teresa before going into the taping, it was worse by the time filming had ended,” one source close to production tells me. ”At this point, producers are not even trying to make them all get along, they know its over. I’m sure they are going to be looking for a new cast member for Teresa to film with because at this point she will be taping all her scenes alone.”
AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVE Details On What Went On At The RHONJ Reunion!
So much went on at the season 4 reunion of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and AllAboutTRH has all the juicy details! While I’ve already told you a lot of what went happened, there’s so much more! Joe Gorga reveals why he’s really upset with Teresa Giudice and I can tell you exactly why!
A show insider tells AllAboutTRH EXCLUSIVELY, “The reason Joe Gorga hasn’t spoken to Teresa is because of the stripper drama. Joe Gorga revealed at the reunion that Teresa told their father that Melissa was a stripper and that their father went back to Joe Gorga and told him Teresa said that. Teresa denied the fact that she told their father that Melissa was a stripper and even said she wanted to call him in front of everyone to prove she never told him that. She kept telling Joe that she never actually called Melissa a stripper and that she just heard it as a rumor but Joe isn’t buying it. Things got real ugly between them but Teresa got extremely emotional talking to her brother who she had not seen in a year.” Teresa said on WWHL that she called her father and he denied telling Joe Gorga that. That’s when Andy Cohen stopped Teresa from talking about the reunion noting that no one knows what she’s talking about…well now you do!
That’s not all! Teresa apparently flipped out when Kathy spoke about Teresa’s mother! What exactly did Kathy say to tick off Teresa? My insider tells AllAboutTRH, “Kathy calls Teresa’s mother a liar which makes Teresa freak out. I think that got Teresa upset the most and Caroline is seen even comforting her.”
On WWHL, Teresa reveals she sang Melissa Gorga’s song ‘On Display’ at the reunion..so why and how did that happen? My insider tells me, “Melissa got annoyed that Teresa always says she wants to hear Melissa’s voice and not the auto tune so Teresa asked Melissa to sing the song to her. Melissa was shocked Teresa asked her to sing the song and wasn’t prepared. Teresa showed Melissa how she can sing it and kept pushing Melissa to sing her song as well. Melissa finally sang in front of the ladies without any auto tune but only sang a few lines which had Teresa laughing.”
