In this Friday edition of “The Real Housewives” notes, we are going to focus on stories that pertain mostly to the “New Jersey” and “Atlanta” versions of the hit Bravo show.
Is Teresa sorry? – Has everyone in New Jersey really moved on past some of the in-fighting? While we were starting to get a glimmer of hope courtesy of an apology Teresa Giudice made for her actions in In Touch Weekly, it may have been premature.
In a new post on Twitter, Jacqueline Laurita suggests that Teresa was not as willing to move on as she hoped after the two spent some time talking on the phone after the In Touch story came out:
“4give me 4 being upset, I wanted 2 believe the apology was sincere … When I called her, it got intense w/ rehashing past. Thought she wanted 2 move 4ward.”
In reading between the lines here, don’t expect the feud between Teresa and her cast members to calm down anytime soon — even with an apology in the tabloids. Jacqueline is at least still hopeful that everyone will be able to move forward in time.
Caroline speaks out – As for one of the other stars of the show, Caroline Manzo has spoken out to address the rumors about her potentially quitting the show because of all the drama.
Is it true? She didn’t really provide a yes-or-no answer; instead, she told Wetpaint that there are only a few circumstances that would convince her to walk away:
“If it ever got to the point where the show affected my life as Albert’s wife or as Albie, Lauren and Christopher’s mom, I’d leave.”
Personally, we don’t think Caroline is going anywhere — but only time will tell for sure.
Kim vs. Marlo – Finally, we’re going to head down to the ATL to talk about one final story stemming from the show’s reunion special — that Kim Zolciak allegedly used money from her engagement ring from “Big Poppa” to pay for the ring Kroy Biermann gave her.
These rumors came from Marlo Hampton, and Kim didn’t hold anything back when speaking to The Hollywood Reporter on the subject:
“[It was] just appalling to insult my family and it really ticked me off … But I kept saying to myself, ‘I’m pregnant, calm down, don’t get aggravated, she doesn’t know me, doesn’t know anything about me.’ It seemed very rehearsed to me.”
What Marlo seemed to be forgetting in her accusation was that Kroy is a pretty rich guy himself thanks to his football career, and he really doesn’t have any reason to try and get an engagement ring by such atypical means.
As always, check back soon for more “Real Housewives” news! We’ll have a full preview of Sunday night’s episode of “New Jersey” coming up on Saturday afternoon.
