This past weekend the Real Housewives of NJ (RHONJ) checked into one of my favorite casino/resorts Revel Resorts, in Atlantic City. The girls Melisa Gorga, sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, a returning RHONJ Dina Manzo and three new wives, twins – Teresa and Nicole Napolitano and Amber Marchese – arrived on Friday and were captured by instagramer Isaac Salazar in the following two photos.
The RHONJ are about as real as the wrastling my grandpop watched when I was a kid. Here’s Melissa Gorga and her sister in law, Teresa “I’m not going to Jail without a fight” Giudice (Giudice is charged with a staggering total of 41 counts of fraud and may be sent to prison with her husband Joe Giudice for a seriously long time.) These two are constantly portrayed as on again, off again fighting, but they’re laughing all the way to the bank, well at least one of them is. The other well they’re paying their past tax bill I hope.
The gals checked in on Friday afternoon. They all had adjoining suites, and a lot of filming occurred there during their stay. On the first day the gals got a private burlesque lesson, and in the evening headed over to the Royal Jelly Burlesque Hall (as you can see in this screen grab. Note lady dancing on runway,) for a show.
At one point one of the housewives joined the professionals on stage, as the others enjoyed their VIP section complete with stripper pole. Can’t wait to see this episode.
carloscrazyself posted a photo of Melissa Gorga, Dina Manzo and three of the new Housewives Teresa and Nicole Napolitano and Amber Marchese at Royal Jelly. On Saturday, the gals filmed a scene on the casino floor, had dinner at Azure, then headed to HQ for a night of dancing. This is the 2nd time they’ve come to Revel Resorts to film scenes for the show. (I was just in AC this weekend, I stayed at the Borgata, had the best dinner at Michael Schulson’s Izakaya , but I have to say Revel Resorts is my number 1 stay, beautiful, new, (& new slots) and it doesn’t smell like smoke.)
Outlets will have you think that this season is the new vs the old, and their was a battle, and in this season that’s where the battles are going to stem from, especially since there is no longer a Melissa and Teresa feud “family has to stick together”. We love to watch this train wreck, and until someone comes out with the script we continue to believe it’s reality.
You know what is real. Teresa Guidice and hubby Joe’s legal problems. It really is quite a shock that someone on a successful franchise as the Real Housewives series could have such financial problems, especially breakout star Teresa Guidice. Not since irritating Bethany has there been such an amazing entrepreneur than Teresa. I would much rather watch a talk show with Teresa than some kvetchy winey chick like Bethany. Anyway, sad to report that she’s down to hawking anything to keep her family afloat. I would support her. I’m sad to see her in such a pickle. I photographed her in October at a poorly promoted wedding expo at the Pa Convention Center, I even bought one of her cook books.
Sunday the cast checked out of Revel Resorts so Teresa and Joe could promote her new sparkling wine Fabellini
at Bayway World of Liquors in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Nothing Fabellini about their lives lately. Best wishes to her and her strength in 2014
