Real Housewives of New Jersey Preview Recap: Felons, Fakes, And Frenemies

Posted on Jun 6 2014 - 2:41pm by Staff Writer

RHONJ Season 6

I’ve finally gotten around to watching the half-hour preview special of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Bravo ran it again last night and this time I DVR’d it. 

The episode begins with Teresa and Joe Giudice’s legal drama and Teresa is doing what she does best — lying her ass off! Teresa says, it’s sad people have to judge and gossip about what she does. Um, excuse me, isn’t that what you’ve done for the past five seasons? Teresa insists to Melissa that the charges are not true but we already know they are true because she pled guilty to them in court. Later Joe says he may be going “on vacation.”  Going on vacation, not like you and I do but to that luxury federal resort where men try not to drop the soap!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 6

Not much has changed, Teresa is still delusional as hell. She seems to think everyone is going through what she’s going through. “Ya know what stinks, is that other people are probably going through the same thing, but people know who I am, so I’m being judged,” she tells Dina Manzo. This loathsome woman really thinks all Americans live beyond their means, run up credit card debt, defraud banks then turn around and file fraudulent bankruptcies. Um, NO! Teresa also says that people come up to her (all the time) and tell her, they wish the worse for her and Joe. Good! I’m glad people are not comforting this crook. Teresa really thought she could defraud banks out of $5 million and her “fans” would continue to support her? She complains that they’re paying high legal fees and because of that, they don’t have enough money to put away for her girls college. As if putting away for the girls college was ever on the agenda.

Dina “Zen” Manzo is back after being fired during season two. For more details on Dina’s firing read hereDina and her hubby, Tommy Manzo, are going through a divorce, she’s dating again and her daughter Lexi is going off to college. From the start, Dina proclaims “The bitch is back and if you don’t like it, you can kiss my ass!” Well Dina, I don’t like it and I ain’t kissing your ass!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 6

Dina’s storyline in season six is to be Teresa Giudice’s best friend. “With the legal situation going on, you bet your ass, I will be by her side every step of the way,” Dina says of Teresa’s legal drama. Dina is seen listening to Teresa as she tells her lies tales while she plays the dutiful friend holding her hand. Gag me with a spoon! Dina “Zen” Manzo is going through a divorce and needs the cash, that’s the main reason she’s back.  Period!

Moving on, Melissa Gorga and Teresa have made up for the show. Last season, viewers complained of the contentious family feud, so Bravo has put an end to that for season six. Melissa and Joey have moved from their Montville mansion and are now living in a Franklin Lakes rental while they build their dream home. They couple have invested a large portion of their money in a garbage disposal business.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey - Season 6

Melissa’s friend, Amber Marchese, is introduced. She’s in remission from breast cancer and the two are getting reacquainted after not seeing each other since Melissa got married. Amber is snarky as she confronts Melissa about not reaching out to her during her cancer. Amber is a certified Jersey Italian firecracker Amber is married to Jim, a mortgage broker and has four kids (two step kids and two with Jim). She’s good friends with the Napolitano twins, Nicole and Teresa. And from the previews that friendship quickly dissolves into caddy name calling, trash talking and hair pulling.

Speaking of  Nicole and Teresa. These two b*tches are reality TV gold! The identical twin sisters are briiiiiiing it! Crass, loud, rude, Jersey Shore meets Mob Wives are just a few descriptors to identify these sisters. They are off-the-chain! 

Teresa and Nicole are best friends. The sisters had me in the opening scene when Teresa walks into the party and they start to make fun of her. That’s my kind of caddy — LMAO! Amber is also spreading rumors that Joe Gorga was engaged to someone else when he started dating Melissa.

Teresa A. first married her husband Rino in 1991, divorced him, and then got married again after 11 years apart. She helps her husband run their successful restaurants in New York. While, Nicole is the mom of two teens and has a new career in private aviation.

This season there seems to be a strong emphasis placed on the Italian-American culture. A lot of stereotypes are mocked and these women do very little to disprove the negative categorizations.

There’s also beef between Joey Gorga and Amber’s husband, Jim Marchese. Jim cooperated with the prosecutor’s office in a whistleblowers case and Joe and Jim get into a heated argument because of it. Tensions erupt at a house party resulting in  Joey Gorga kicking Jim out!

Kathy Wakile is back in a limited capacity. Teresa undermines Kathy’s dessert business when she reveals to Kathy that she also plans to debut a dessert line. Previously, Teresa criticized Kathy’s cannoli venture as a bad business choice because “desserts don’t do well.” Is anyone surprised that Teresa is undermining Kathy’s dessert business? Teresa is an envious woman who hates to see others doing better than she is. She’s obviously jealous of Kathy’s cannoli business and wants to cut into her money by putting out her own dessert line. How do you spell bitch — T-E-R-E-S-A!

Based on this 30-minute preview, I am excited for the new season to start! Oy vey!

“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” season 6 will premiere Sunday, July 13 at 8p.m. EST.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the recap, Doc. Jim Marchese works for a mortgage company and what he said to Joey was that he might help the prosecutor in the case against Teresa and Juicy. It’s hard to hear, but I listened again last night.

    • Vince Foster, Jr.

      Maybe he was their mortgage broker???

      • WestCoastFeed

        I’ve been meaning to look that up. Jim’s company is NOW mortgage, I wonder if his firm is one of the firms the Juicys defrauded.

      • True or maybe they try to lure him into their scam.

    • Thanks West. It was hard for me to make heads or tails of that part and I rewinded several times

      • WestCoastFeed

        Yes, it was very hard to decipher. That’s another place where closed captioning helps.

        • Jim being a mortgage broker he probably (and this mere speculation) has info into how they ran their scams. I bet they try to do the same to Jim and he did not go along with their bullcrap.

  • Marsbars09

    I’m not excited by the preview, but I’ll watch the first episode to see what’s what.
    Doc, you forgot to mention Dina is so broke she’s still living with her soon to be ex-hubby. If I were Tommy I would not allow Dina to use me just to give the illusion that she is still wealthy.

    • Hi Marsie. Dina has done that their entire marriage. She never loved Tommy, she only married him for his money. Dina is the biggest con-artist and phoney (next to Teresa) on that show.

  • realitygur4eva

    Teresa is just a fake ass felony bitch! Dina came back because she is probably a broke zen bitch; And when Teresa goes to prison (she better) Dina will be in position to take Teresa’s top spot!!! By the way 31 days til that bitch is sentenced.. Pray on that Teresa!!! Lmao

    • WestCoastFeed

      And the local blogosphere gossip is that Dina has switched her allegiance to Melissa and dropped Teresa.

      • Marsbars09

        Why would she do that?

        • WestCoastFeed

          Hitching her wagon to any star.

          • Marsbars09

            Girl you know Mel isn’t going to ascend past RHOA. Dina is dumb as f *ck! (Excuse my French, WCF. That’s how much I dislike Dina).

          • WestCoastFeed

            Dina will always be looking after herself and do whatever she thinks will help her. If that means dropping Teresa and latching on to Melissa, it’s done.

          • Marsbars09

            That’s fine WCF. It makes sense for Dina to do something like that since we know she doesn’t better.

        • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

          Cause she needs the $$$$. & Tre must no longer be a viable & realistic option!

          • Marsbars09

            Tiger, like I told WCF, Mel won’t ascend past RHNJ. There’s absolutely no reason for Dina to waste her time.

          • Hello & thank you! OMG, if this is true that’s more sand on the Trehugger’s face!

    • Marsbars09

      Reality, all of your “bitches” has me LMAO!
      As for Dina, she’s too sorry and boring to take anybody’s place. After Tre leaves that show is OVER!

    • Hi Realitygurl…LMAO! Tell it girlfriend!

  • Happywife

    Tre you are beautiful and wonderful. Please don’t pay attention to the simple minded people who believe the story line that you are stupid or delusional. You are the best and rational people understand what’s going on.

    • WestCoastFeed

      And I am Marie of Romania.

    • Sorry Happy. I disagree with all of this. SMDH!

      • Marsbars09

        LOL!

        • Seriously though! 🙂

          Happy Friday, Marsie. Any plans for the weekend?

          • Marsbars09

            Actually Doc, I was ROFLMAO at your SMDH!
            I hope you have a nice weekend too. I’m currently getting my hair done.

          • Hi hon…..I know your hair turned out beautiful!

          • Marsbars09

            Thanks.

    • Chloe

      Are you serious? Teresa is the queen of stupid and delusional.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

        Oh Chloe. I see you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting Happywife. Happy says she is a good & close personal friend of the Giudices. Especially Tre-ape. & according to Happy, we are all wrong to be angry & frustrated by Tre & Juicy’s behavior. She knows them. So that means she believes committing felonious crimes for the last 10 years is okay in her book. As long as it’s not HER that gets fucked over!

        • cutie pie

          happy is like clockwork…always here on a Friday..and a Friday only…it’s weird…

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

            Must be the only time she is not too closely monitored & therefore is allowed to use the computer in the Day-room! Sorry to be so insulting but she must be institutionalized Cutie. That’s the only way I can make sense & can understand her defense of her good buddy Tre-ape!

          • cutie pie

            LOL

          • Chloe

            This sounds plausible to me, lol.

          • Marsbars09

            Oh Tiger! :/

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

            R’uh-R’oh!

          • Marsbars09

            Don’t be ashamed Tiger! We just need to be respectful of those that share a different POV from the rest of us.

        • Chloe

          Thank you for filling me in, lol. She must be related to Teresa or working for her. Those are the only people that would support the felon.

          • WestCoastFeed

            She claims that she and Tre have been friends since childhood. And she blames Juicy for ALL of their legal problems. She’s taking the innocent, obedient wife tack with this.

          • Chloe

            Thank you for the scoop. She sounds stupid. Plain and simple.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Happy! I’m so glad you can join us!
      I respectfully disagree with your comment.

  • cutie pie

    the best line for me was T saying she has no money for college for the kids…almost died laughing…they have millions stashed…

    • WestCoastFeed

      But where is it stashed, cutie pie? In Italy?

      • cutie pie

        could be..no idea…all I know is the figures don’t add up. they obtained well over 11 million illegally. they didn’t use it on their home..joe built it and stiffed the suppliers..all the other stuff they bought is minor when compared to 11 million..where is all that money?..what was it spent on?

        • WestCoastFeed

          Some of those loans and mortgages were paid back when they had their hands out for larger loans. It’s one of their methods for building their credit scores so they could qualify for large amounts.

          • cutie pie

            they tried to get rid of over 11 million dollars of indebtedness..

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes. You mean in the bankruptcy? Yes, and those creditors are still waiting to be paid. Plus the new creditors since then. So now they are 13+ million in debt.

          • cutie pie

            and where did the money go?..they didn’t spend it…it’s stashed.

          • WestCoastFeed

            No. she doesn’t have millions invested in Hermes bags.

          • cutie pie

            that’s what I’m saying…all the purchasing she does is peanuts…as compared to multiple of millions. they’ll do their time and come home to cash…

          • Some similarities to their own version of a pyramid scheme.

      • I myself wonder that.

    • They have million stashed and won’t use a dime of it on their kids college. That commentary (imo) was Teresa once again trying to garner sympathy from the public. Such a deceitful lying bitch she is. UGH!!!!!!!!!

  • She Stinks!

    Is Tre and Juicy do not get hard time, the justice systems has failed us. If Martha Stewart can go to jail, so can these 2 slobs. My concern is Tre may get away with this – perish the thought.

    • cutie pie

      she sounds in this clip as though she knows she’s not going to do hard time..it has me wondering if she knows something we don’t.

      • She Stinks!

        I hope that this was filmed a long time ago, before it all really went down.

        • WestCoastFeed

          It must have been filmed before they entered their guilty pleas.

        • cutie pie

          oh right..didn’t think of that…good…I was worried there for a minute.

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

        Hi Cutie. Happy Friday to you. Have a good one.

        • cutie pie

          you too tigerlily…

    • Hi She Stinks! Love the avi. I think Joe will definitely serve time….5+ years at minimum. Teresa I am not 100% sold on will get prison time. House arrest, yes but I’m not 100% confident in our justice system to give this vile stinking trash heap the prison time she deserves.

      • She Stinks!

        Yup, heard Joe will do 5+ and she may get 1-2. She deserves more. And we all know how she will act – run her mouth and brag about it. Guess anyone can steal $11M and get away with it. I pray for a better America.

        • Marsbars09

          I guess Tre will school her fellow inmates with the art of her scams.

        • That’s exactly what she’ll do! Honestly, I’ve lost all hope in our justice system…..ALL HOPE!

        • SAMRA1116

          Makes anyone thinks it’s ok to cheat the government.
          If that’s the case—give me back all my taxes paid n every penny they took out of my paycheck.

      • Marsbars09

        Doc, I think Tre will do prison time. However, she probably won’t receive the sentence she deserves.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I think so, too, Mars. Probably 6 to 9 months in prison followed by another 6 to 9 months house arrest. Probably not long enough to force her to really face up to what she did and who she hurt besides her children..

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

            Hi West. Happy Friday. Hope you are enjoying your day. Have a good weekend.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Thanks, tiger, you too. And I’m looking forward to Saturday funnies.

          • Me too!! 🙂

        • And that’s what’s pissing me off …it’s not fair!!!!!!!

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

        Hi Doc! What’s shakin’ bacon? Happy Friday Doll! Have an awesome weekend!

        • Hey there T-Lily!!!! TGIF!!! You too 🙂

      • realitygur4eva

        Joe will go to prison! But Teresa I kinda doubt it; I say that because part of her guilty plea agreement she agreed to pay 200k at time of her sentencing in 31 days ha ha! Now the question is will she have the money bet she will. Therefore she’ll receive house arrest. If she gets prison time her and joe won’t go at the same time I bet either.. Cross your fingers!

        • I have not only my fingers but toes too.

      • SAMRA1116

        They BOTH deserves jail. No passing go and collecting nothing, but JAIL.
        How much have they paid their creditors back? Ugh
        She don’t think she’s going to jail, she has convinced herself, she did nothing wrong.

        • I couldn’t agree more, Samra!

      • realitygur4eva

        http://www.justice.gov/usao/nj/Press/files/Giudice,%20Giuseppe%20and%20Teresa%20Pleas%20PR.html this is the press release from US DA of New Jersery. Now if she doesn’t have the money at time of sentencing then she may go to prison. But I can’t see agreeing to pay this amount if she couldn’t! She’s gonna pay her way out of prison!! We’ll see what happens!!

        • Thanks! She’ll pay it. These clowns have money stashed.

    • Chloe

      I agree. And it angers me she may get away with this. It seems she’s constantly getting away with everything.

    • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ✿❀❁

      Hi SS. Happy Friday to you! Glad you joined in the fun today! Have a wonderful weekend!

  • Chloe

    No Teresa, what’s happening with you and your husband and your legal “issues” can not happen to anyone. You and your scum hubby made bad choices. Those choices got you to where you are today. Bottom line! But to no surprise, you are not taking any accountability. Shocker.

    And in response to you saying, “We’re good people…I don’t know why this is happening to us..” NO Teresa, you’re not good people. You both lie, cheat, steal, and only put your selfish selves first without one thought about how it could effect your girls or about what kind of example you’re setting for them. Stupid and pure Selfish.

    Why don’t you try to redeem yourself and get off the show, devote yourself to your girls, and get therapy for all of you.

    George hadjiapostoli is not Dina’s ex husband. A blogger got it wrong-others picked it up and Dina never corrected it. Deliberately. The info is out there-plain as day-I’m surprised none of you crack investigators have picked up on it.

    • So you’re saying George and Dina were never married? Why does Dina refer to him as her ex-husband? So basically George Hadjiapostoli is just Dina’s baby daddy? Bwahahaha!!!!

      • Anonymous

        He’s not her baby daddy either. They were never in a relationship. That’s where the confusion started. Check Lexis twitter and go from there. 🙂

        • Not trying to be rude and I mean no disrespect but you’re not making much sense to me. George Hadjiapostoli is Lexi’s biological father so that would make him Dina’s baby daddy. As much as Lexi hates this fact and tries to hide it, he’s her REAL father.

          • Anonymous

            I know you don’t. But he’s NOT her biological dad. And she’s never hidden or hated her real dad. She simply used manzo on social media when she was a minor to protect her privacy. She’s not a minor anymore and her real name is out there! I can explain how the rumor got started if you’d like. You’ll be the only blogger to get it right.

          • This is interesting. Probably best you send the editor an email at editor@allaboutthetea.com. Thanks Anon.

          • Anonymous

            I’ll just lay it out here. It’s quick and I can stay anon! 🙂 Lexis last name is ioannou. She no longer keeps that private. The confusion started because there is a family relationship between the ioannous and the hadjiapostolis. When she mentioned her ex owning the salon (George has been married since 1992-Lexi was born in 1996) the blogger who picked it up googled Nisha-saw George as the owner and made the assumption. It took on a life of it’s own after that. No one thought about the fact that business have more then one owner (investors) who just don’t have a face on the business. It was never publicly corrected because of privacy for everyone. The people who matter, know the truth and didn’t feel a need to put themselves out there. That’s it. Claudine ioannous-just google. It’s all there. PS there was no firing or forgery. To forge the consent forms is not possible. There’s safeguards to prevent that. But the public will believe anything and it’s better then what really happened.

          • Anonymous

            Oops Nisha opened in 1992-George was married well prior to that.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Big question–why does George allow this misinformation to stand uncorrected?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Never mind, I see you have already said that the family just prefers to keep it all private.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Anon, I suspect the doc deleted it until she can find proof. That’s what I would have done if I were her.

            I figured that’s what would happen and I’m totally fine with that-I understand why she did it and like you, I’d do the same. I just gave the info. She can do what she wants with it. 🙂

          • WestCoastFeed

            She’s a very responsible blogger and while I am sure she appreciates your information, she will want to verify it and let the concerned parties comment if they wish to. Thank you for choosing this site to share it with. You made a wise choice.

    These pageant glamour shots are too much. This preview was straight up Jersey Shore. Bravo can thank the felons for not losing me as a viewer. It’s the only story line that’s bringing me back.

    • Birdie, yeeeees!!!!!…nothing beats the banshee’s ugly cry and rolling on the floor — bwahahahaha!!!!!!!!! And my favorite of all is, everybody coming up to her and telling her she belongs in jail — ahahahaha!!!!!!!!!

      Hi birdie! You are correct on how those “Jersey” shows stereotype Italian-Americans. I know enough that not all Italian-Americans behave in that manner.

      • Birdie11

        Hey Marsie!! Plus…is absolutely EVERYONE Italian in NJ?? I guess those are the only ones Bravo is hunting down. I would like to see some diversity!

            Well I say…BRING ON the Irish!! LOLLL

  • Maria

    How wonder how much money they have stashed away? Its just not fair Teresa probally wont get jail time and gets to keep all that money. I wonder what happens if she tells the courts they have no money left to pay creditors but in reality have millions stashed away somewhere that can’t be proven by the government, do they not have to pay if they cry poor?
