As taping for the next season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" is underway, it seems as though much of the same drama will be shown, particularly between siblings and Montville residents Teresa Giudice and Joe Gorga.

The Christian Post Reports that Gorga confronted Giudice, asking her why she did not visit him in the hospital, but Giudice replied that Gorga's wife, Melissa Gorga, had never told her he was there.

Joe Gorga jokingly admits to being an exotic dancer in final reunion episode.
After five months, season four of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” ended Sunday night when the third and final part of the series’ reunion special aired. The women continued to argue about their relationships with one another throughout the reunion. The topic of who used to take her clothes off for money just wouldn’t die. Even the women’s husbands were dragged into the conversation when they were brought out. “What’s wrong with being a stripper?” Joe Gorga asked. And then the truth came out. “Joe, I heard you were a dancer of the Chippendales variety,” host Andy Cohen said. “Absolutely,” Gorga said, adding that he performed in a thong. In fact, everyone made it pretty clear it was the lying between castmates, and not the stripping, …

Joe Giudice apologizes for insulting his wife on the second of a three-part reunion show.
The second part of the “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion aired Sunday, with an anticlimactic showdown between Rosie Pierri and Teresa Giudice and an appearance from Joe Giudice. During the episode, Melissa Gorga, of Montville, said she and her husband decided to put their home on the market to get away from the Giudices. “I don’t want my kids going to school with her kids,” Gorga said. Despite the fact that they are currently in different elementary schools, Laurita pointed out that they would attend junior high school together. “I see where it’s going and I have one little girl,” she said. “I don’t want [the four Giudice girls] ganging up on her." Last week, Kathy Wakile called Teresa Giudice’s mother and father a liar. Giudice…

Wednesday, August 29, 2012
Spoiler alert. If you were hoping that by the end of this season of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" all the fighting housewives would make up and be best friends forever, think again. In fact, the Huffington Post reported Teresa Giudice has not spoken to any of the castmates, not even brother Joe Gorga or sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, of Montville, who Giudice seemed to have a fairly decent relationship with the past few episodes. Giudice has also not spoken to cousin Kathy Wakile, of Wayne, since filming wrapped last year. The last time the women or their husbands talked to Giudice was on the "Watch What Happens Live" Reunion Show, which airs after the season finale on Bravo. The castmates have all taken issue with Giudice this season…

Siblings argue on this week's episode, but not the ones you think.
This week’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” resurrected some old issues from last season and solved—temporarily—some from this season. In fact, it was not the Gorga/Giudice siblings but the Manzo siblings that brought on the trip to Napa Valley’s first meltdown. During the ride to another camp site, Albie Manzo revealed to his sister, Lauren, that he has asked his girlfriend, Lindsay, to move in with him, brother Chris Manzo, and roommate Greg Bennett. “I really feel like if they could replace me with their new friends that they could and maybe they already have,” Lauren said. Later that night, over a home-cooked meal, Albie and Chris started teasing Lauren for the way she talks to her boyfriend, Vito. When she began to get upset, her …

Long awaited session gets to the root of the problem.
This week’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” episode featured the long-awaited therapy session between Towaco resident Teresa Giudice and her brother, Montville resident Joe Gorga. Early in the episode, Gorga revealed to his family that his sister had agreed to go to therapy with him. While Giudice has repeatedly said in the past couple of episodes that she thinks therapy will make her brother realize he has a problem, Gorga revealed he has similar beliefs about her. “Go in with an open mind and use that therapy to help yourself as well,” Gorga's cousin, Rosie Pierri, said, revealing that therapy helped her when she was going through a very angry period of self hatred before coming out as a lesbian. Both Giudice and Gorga managed to make it…
