Roomate Greg. It's been mentioned and seems to pretty obvious.
That's my issue with HofNJ. Chris Laurita is involved and being sued for questionable business practices but none of his business dirt is mentioned on the show. If the allegations are true then he has no more integrity than the Giudices.
IMO, the difference with the Manzos and the Lauritas in comparison with Teresa and Juicy is, yes, the Manzos and Lauritas "dirt" does make news just like the Guidices.
However the big difference I see is the Manzos and Lauritas, don't FEED the news. In other words, they don't give interviews to magazines (Legit or gossip) to feed the stories or explain themselves; either they keep their mouths shut about it or "no comment" or let the lawyers do the talking.
Or, if the they (Manzos/Lauritas) do speak, the know how to effectively
spin things; that is not Teresa's strong suit. Again one may not believe Man-rita spins, but they don't sound as ridiculous or contradictory as Teresa's spins. Teresa does not usually help herself when she opens her mouth.
Teresa is practically the cover girl and tenant for In Touch/Style
or whatever magazine it is (Kim Zolciak-Bierman from RHOA is another one). A lot of celebrities make the news for things in their lives that are both good and bad, but when the celebrity is actively
assisting by giving quotes to articles or interviews,then said celebrities should not get pissed off when people question them about their "personal" lives like Teresa did when Jac was asking her.
"No comment" means to me personal/off limits subject (even if the subject is public knowledge via the news, etc).
Some may say Jac was nosy, but considering the interviews/stories Tre has given and since Jac and Tre are/were friends, I don't think Jac was totally off base for asking Tre "What's the real
The Guidices bankruptcy cases are still not discharged or accepted, yet they are building an addition to your house (even if it is family labor, the supplies cost money) No one is saying life stops after bankruptcy, but it seems no lessons have been learned. (prioritizing).
From what I gather the addition is not for the parents to live in so is there really a rush to add this addition and the bankruptcy is still in progress and my husband may go "away"? I guess I would be very cautious financially speaking given all the question marks going on right now.
My only issue with that scene in the Laurita's backyard with Jac, Tre and eventually Caro was Jac should not have dragged the conversation on for hours. When Jac saw that Tre was lying/ "ineffectively spinning" things, Jac should have just left it alone instead of trying to make a point. The conversation would have ended maybe after 20 minutes not from daylight to nightfall.
Also I think Chris called his sister Caro and told her what was going on with Jac and Tre , and Caro made an appearance in the Lauritas backyard under the guise of returning some children' clothing.
I understand Tre needs money and that is probably why she does the interviews/quotes, but hey everything in life has pluses and minuses and Tre shouldn't get upset when friends question things they read in magazines and it may or may not jibe with what friends see in "real" life.
Having said that, I still give Tre a shout out for her hustle, that is a tuff cookie and "mama is bringing home the bacon."
