Thanks Mappy! Just WOW!

If any of my family's money came from the mob I would be scared to death someone would still be coming back for it. I would change my name and move. I would not be on a TV show flaunting my money for sure. I am too paronoid. I would be thinking some member (current or from the old days) would come calling.

Knowing the background will definitely make it even more interesting to watch.

Tiny was/is the father of the two brothers. Interesting history about The Brownstone.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
They live in a land of made men and unmade beds.

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" are coming next month, with the latest installment of the hit reality show introducing a quintet of Garden State gals - including two with a mob pedigree.

Sisters Dina and Caroline Manzo - they married a pair of Jersey brothers - provide a real-life link to "The Sopranos" for the Bergen County-based program.

Their father-in-law, Albert (Tiny) Manzo, was executed mob-style in August 1983, after he and Gambino family soldier Peter A. Campisi were suspected of skimming from a mob casino on Staten Island.

"A couple of weeks later, they found Tiny Manzo in the trunk of his car," recalled Robert Buccino, a New Jersey organized crime expert.

The 350-pound mobster took four slugs to his torso. His naked body - the arms and legs bound in plastic - was discovered in the trunk of his parked Lincoln-Continental outside a supermarket in Hillside, N.J.

The killing was never solved.

Campisi, a made man and Tiny's partner in the casino, suffered a similar fate, Buccino recalled.
The colorful Manzo, who ran for mayor of Paterson in 1974, also owned the Brownstone Restaurant - one of the main backdrops for action in "Housewives."

His two wealthy sons, Albert and Tommy, still operate the venerable Paterson catering facility. Blond Dina and red-headed sibling Caroline are the first pair of sisters featured on the hit show.

Last night's episode left me questioning Danielle's motive's. I didn't like the way she made herself apart of Jaqueline's talk with her daughter,I mean that clearly was not her place,or it could've been the way she was kissing Dinah's ass. She is just trying too hard to be apart of that group,it makes me wonder why she care's so much.

Cheat sheet for those memory impaired (like me)



From left to right:

Jacqueline Laurita: A former cosmetologist, she is now a stay-at-home mom, but still loves to pamper herself. She has a teenage daughter from her previous marriage and a 6-year-old son with her husband Chris, who owns wholesale apparel businesses and is brother to Caroline and Dina.

Teresa Giudice: Born and raised in New Jersey, her husband Joe owns a successful construction company. Together they have three young daughters, who take up much of her time. A friend of Dina and Caroline, she also loves to shop, get spa treatments and spend time at her beach house on the Jersey Shore.

Danielle Staub: “You either love me or you hate me, there is no in between,” says the single mom of two daughters. She prides herself as one of the first female American Express Black card members in New Jersey. She is also active in her local parish and regularly attends mass. She and Jacqueline are friends.

Dina Manzo: Founder of the nonprofit Project Ladybug, which helps children with cancer, she’s also an interior designer, an event planner, mother and best friends with her sister Caroline. Her husband Tommy works with his brother (Caroline’s husband) at their family’s catering business.

Caroline Manzo: She’s a mother of three and own a real estate firm and a line of children’s accessories. Described as a “feisty spitfire,” she’s Dina’s sister and is on the board of Project Ladybug. She’s married to Albert Manzo, brother of Dina’s husband Tommy. Dina and Caroline’s brother is Jacqueline’s husband Chris.

Real Housewives‘ Teresa Giudice Is Pregnant!

May 21, 2009

Looks like there’s a baby boom in New Jersey!
Teresa Giudice, one of the stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, is pregnant with her fourth child, a Bravo rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. The reality star is five and a half months along, and is “excited” about expanding her family.
Giudice, 36, already has three daughters — Gia, 8, Gabriella, 4, and Milania, 3 — but is unsure about the sex of her new baby. According to Bravo, Giudice “wants to keep it a secret until she delivers.”
But Giudice isn’t the only expectant Housewife. PEOPLE confirmed in April that castmate Jacqueline Laurita is expecting her third child this summer

I finally got to watch tonight! I'm getting into it although there are a couple of things that are too close for comfort for me. The date that Danielle went on was at the Highlawn Pavilion in West Orange. It's a beautiful place and my husband and I go there on special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries). The thought of her entertaining the idea of having sex in the bathroom made me want to throw up.

I almost fell out of my chair with the part where Albert & Caroline are talking with their daughter, Lauren and Albert says that he's going to call the owner of DePasquale for a job for her. DePasquale Salon, owned by Carmen DePasquale, is a very upscale beauty salon/spa/school in North Jersey which my ex happens to be a Vice President of afraid I swear to God if there is a way he can get his face on this program, it will happen trust me. I'm going to email my ex sister-in-law now and ask her about it.

Anyway, I'm finding it pretty funny. I'm liking it now because everything is light and funny, however, I'm not so sure I'll like it once the drama starts. I think Teresa is a riot with those kids and that God awful gaudy house she's building/decorating (that cash she was counting out was just a deposit for the furniture). Jacqueline seems sweet and I'm happy that she's pregnant with her second son. I can even relate to Caroline, she reminds me of so many women in my family with the home, cooking and over protecting of her kids.

Should be an interesting ride.

Jack'd...all I can say is Wow. The Highlawn place looked so nice on tv that I couldn't believe that Danielle was wanting to do that crap there.

I think Caroline is a very doting mother. Her sister Dina seems to think everyone else is jealous of her. Or is it just me?

I wonder how the drama will play out. These women seem a bit reserved for the moment, except for Danielle maybe. She is pretty upfront with what she wants(a man to take care of her and sex).

Your insight on this show is very heartwarming. Can't wait to hear your thoughts on upcoming shows. dance

I wouldn't exactly use that term for them, but after seeing several commercials, I just don't like them.
I think I'll skip this show.

I loved the NYC gals the best of all the "housewives"

One thing I am still not clear about: Dina's husband, she says is out of town a lot, and that she knew that upfront and is okay with it. If her husband works with his brother in their catering business, ie. the Brownstone, why does he have to go out of town all the time? I still do not know what to think about any of them yet, but I am watching it still.

So far, I agree, the NY housewives have been the best by far.

I have no clue either tea, only that she blogged that he didn't want to be on the show. Now, we do know that they were on My Big Fat Fabulous Wedding, so check out this video and see what you think. zip a lip lol!

BTW, I know you have ties with NJ, just wanted to tell you that Teresa actually lives in Montville and Danielle actually lives in Wayne.

Danielle Staub Arrested!

Star Magazine has reported that at the beginning of April Danielle Staub was arrested at her Wayne, NJ mansion. Apparently, Danielle has yet to pay her divorce lawyers because her ex-hubby - some exercise equipment manufacturer hasn't upped her divorce settlement. I don't know how much Danielle stands to gain in the settlement, but her lawyers fees are in the six figures and they want their money. So, they issued a civil action contempt warrant.
To top it all off, Danielle's star status has already gone to her head because she asked the police if they knew who she was . . . like she was somebody! Come on Danielle, your claim to fame is that you had a Black American Express card before Madonna (thanks to your hubby by the way!), so unless the Passiac County police officers are moonlighting as AMEX black card reps they don't know you!
The shenanigans ended with Danielle spending 90 minutes at the police station and reportedly later had her publicist call the cops and ask them to reenact the arrest for the cameras. They declined, but I'm sure this isn't the last we'll be hearing about this matter.

I have a question for all you Housewives watchers. I read somewhere that the show was 6 episodes. What is this all about? Is that all there really is? I don't get it.

From B Side Blog...

Tonight's a brand spanking new edition of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, and hopefully, some sparks might start flying with these ladies. In the meantime, here's a clip of resident battle ax Caroline forcing her daughter to learn the finer art of pubic waxing. After the jump, two bonus clips that I honestly haven't seen (they weren't working on the Bravo website, but hopefully they'll embed fine here). I don't really know what they're about, but I'm sure they're horrifying and embarrassing for all parties involved....
