BRAVO's Real Housewives of New Jersey is set to air "The Manzos Continue to Snub Danielle."
Real Housewives of New Jersey? Poor Danielle, she tries so hard and still gets nowhere.
While family is the most important thing to these Jersey wives, it’s also the cause of lots of drama: Jacqueline and her daughter Ashley continue to butt heads over Ashley’ bad girl behavior.
Meanwhile when Danielle’s daughter is invited to model in NYC Fashion Week, Danielle extends an olive branch to Dina and Jacqueline to celebrate Christine’s success in an effort to move forward.
But when neither shows up to Danielle’s luncheon, will her bruised ego inspire her to take revengeful action? Find out this Monday 5/10 @ 10/9c on BRAVO’s Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Parade.com’s new Mom-to-Mom blog checked in with Teresa Giudice, from Bravo's The Real Housewives of New Jersey, just in time for Mother’s Day.
The Housewife dished with Parade.com’s Fran Carpentier on everything from her new Italian cookbook to her daughter’s recent remark about not wanting to marry a Jewish person, to her infamous...BUBBIES!
Turns out she only wanted to have sex in the dark before she got implants. Read on and click here for the full interview
On why she got her “bubbies” enlarged last year...
"I did it for myself, because I didn't feel sexy. You know, I would only want to have sex in the dark. At first, I liked my little bubbies. They were A cups. They reminded me of Kelly Ripa, who is so secure about herself. But after breastfeeding my three daughters, they deflated! Joe even said it once on the show last season, "Geez, all you have is nipples!" I couldn't believe he said that, but he was right. So when I said I wanted to get a boob job, Joe said, 'Whatever makes you happy, go for it.' After I got them, he saw that I was more sure of myself, and he liked them. I mean, it worked. Look, we had another baby! The reason I chose the doctor I did -- Dr. Zubowski in Paramus -- is because Caroline got a tummy tuck from him. Now he gets so much business because of the show. I'm happy about that, because he's the best. My boobs look real, right?"
On daughter Gia’s comments about how she "would never marry a Jewish person"
"I think that happened because, one time, we were in Brooklyn, and Gia saw all these Orthodox Jews -- there were so many of them, the ones with the long black coats and the long curls. And she had never seen anything like that before. So she asked, "Mommy, why do those men have those curls hanging down the side of their heads?" And I said, "Honey, that’s their religion." I never explained to her that there are different kinds of Jewish people. So I guess she put it in her head that all Jewish people wear their hair like that. After that episode aired, I explained to Gia what happened and she said, "Oh, Mommy! I hope nobody hates me. But then someone told me that Danielle [Staub] in her blog called my daughter semi-racist or something. How dare she!"
On “training” husband Joe to help out at home...
"Joe's amazing. He does a lot. Well, not a lot. But I trained him good. He started helping when I had Milania, our third. But before Milania, he didn’t do nothing. I'm not the type to tell my husband to do things. By the time you tell them, you might as well do it yourself. But now that we have four children, Joe does the food shopping. I mean, if I put the four girls in the car, where am I going to put the food? So I make a list for Joe, and he does it. And when he comes home, I put the food away, and he holds the baby. The other times that I'm not with my girls, like when I'm filming and doing book signings, my husband is with them. My work gives my husband time to be alone with our girls.
