RHONJ: Melissa Gorga has ‘no guilt’ about the state of her relationship with Teresa Giudice – TK

Fans were a bit shocked when Teresa Giudice recently revealed that she was not having any Housewives in her wedding party. Especially since one of her castmates is family – her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.

The two have had a tumultuous relationship since Melissa and Joe Gorga wed in 2004 but have worked on improving their bond and work together as friends and family. During this season’s reunion, the pair suffered a blow when a fight erupted between Melissa, Joe, and Teresa.

Melissa is now speaking out about where she and Teresa currently stand and what the future holds for the Gorga family.

Melissa said she ‘tried really hard’ to keep peace with Teresa

Melissa was a guest on the Betches Mention It All podcast on Monday, and of course, she was asked about her relationship with Tre. She openly spoke about her decision to end her friendship with her sister-in-law, although they are family.

“I truly feel like I have hit every avenue,” Melissa revealed. “I have no guilt. It’s OK to say that [Teresa and I] don’t have the best relationship, and I don’t feel guilty saying that because I tried really hard, and I know that I tried hard — for my in-laws and for [my husband] Joe [Gorga],” she continued. Fans really feel for Melissa because it is obvious on the show that she wants to help Joe keep his relationship with his sister.

Both Joe and Teresa have said that they are the only family they have since their parents passed and don’t want to spend time fighting. Melissa agreed, saying, “[My in-laws] are not here anymore and now … it is sad to see [Joe] not have family.”

Melissa said that she is just plain tired of talking about her issues with Teresa. “We are all, as a cast, sick of it,” she told Betches listeners. “Does anybody really wanna see Teresa, Melissa, and Joe argue and make up to break up? Just leave it alone!”

Melissa has been a full-time Housewife for ten seasons, and every season has focused on her and Joe’s relationship with Teresa, and she is done talking about it. She admitted, “I don’t care if we never talked about it again. You have me all f****d up, and you got it twisted. I don’t want to talk about Teresa or the family, never again if it was up to me.”

Joe Gorga feels disrespected by his sister

Just last week, Joe was a guest on Melissa’s podcast, Melissa Gorga on Display, where he said, “Regardless if she liked my wife or she didn’t like my wife, she’s basically smacking me in the face, and she’s giving me no respect, and she’s making it hard on me.” Joe adds that he takes it personally, saying, “It’s not about just my wife — it’s basically ‘I don’t care about my brother.’”

He also admitted that he would include Teresa’s spouse if he were to get married now, even if he didn’t like them. But Joe does say it will be Teresa’s day, and all he wants is for her to have a great wedding. He told Melissa, “I don’t want drama. I want it to be a great day. I want to be happy, and I want my sister there, and I want it to be peaceful [and] make my sister happy.”

Will Melissa be able to stick to her decision to distance herself from Teresa?

‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’: Is Lisa Rinna Infested with Rats? – TK

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna might have lost a friendship over a sketchy infestation situation. Rumors are circulating that Sheree Zampino‘s visit to Lisa’s sent her to the emergency room.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Sheree Zampino Steering Clear of Lisa Rinna’s Home
Bravo fans all know that there are always crazy rumors surrounding the cast. However, this latest Real Housewives of Beverly Hills report is wild.

The new rumor is circulating online. Sources reportedly reveal that a rat allegedly bit newcomer Sheree Zampino during Lisa Rinna’s event at her home.

RHOBH viewers have to know that fans cannot resist roasting Rinna on the subject despite the potential seriousness of the matter on Zampino’s side of things.

On a more serious note, the source says that Rinna’s party fizzled out fast over the rodent. What is unknown are the details. Fans want to know how something like this happens.

Sheree Could Face Serious Health Issues After Attending Lisa’s Party
Per the unknown RHOBH informant, the terrifying rat bite sent Zampino rushing to the hospital with serious health concerns of exposure to Hantavirus.

So, what is Hantavirus? The Centers for Disease Control website states Hantaviruses can be very serious. The Hantavirus is a family of viruses spread mainly by rodents and can cause various disease syndromes.

Humans most commonly contract the virus through urine, feces, and saliva, less frequently from a rodent bite. Symptoms include fatigue, fever, muscle aches, dizziness, chills, and abdominal issues.

HPS has a 38 percent fatality rate. The CDC site states no specific treatments, cures, or vaccines for HPS. Bites from infected rodents are the main source of the disease in humans.

Rinna Laughs Off Past Rat Incidents in Her Home

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans may recall this isn’t the first Rinna rodent reveal. You may recall one RHOBH episode revealed rat droppings on Lisa’s husband Harry Hamlin’s outside barbeque grill.

In 2014, Lisa took to Twitter to reveal to her followers, “HH just pulled a dead rat the size of a cat (his words) out of the basement. He is Mcgyver [sic] for reals.”

Then there was another where she said there were rat droppings in their oven! We’re guessing that Andy Cohen was not kidding when he claims that Season 12 of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is one of the craziest and most chaotic seasons yet.

Some fans question the Sheree Zampino and Lisa Rinna rat rumor. At this time, it’s unconfirmed. Fans say if it is true, they hope to see the story during the season. Do you believe the Rinna rat infestation rumor? Or is someone having a little fun picking at Lisa?

Is Sheree Having Second Thoughts About RHOBH?

One thing is true, RHOBH‘s fans will be paying close attention to this story. But, they also say they are awaiting reactions from both Lisa and Sheree.

Seriously, how could Rinna pass up commenting on this one? Season 12 is Zampino’s first year with the franchise. But, who is Sheree? Zampino is a well-known fashion designer and businesswoman.

Sheree is also the ex-wife of actor Will Smith. Zampino and Smith share one son, Trey Smith, 29. The former couple was together for two years before divorcing in 1995. Sheree says she and Will remain close friends.

Something that is not often easy to do after divorce. But, for them, she says, there is no other way. When Sheree first began talking about joining the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she reveals being excited. Zampino also said she was unsure of what to expect.

But she felt she could hold her own with the other women. However, if the Zampino rat-bite rumor is accurate, she may be rethinking that decision.


RHOA’s Kenya Moore On Shedding Her Role As The Show’s ‘Villain’ In Season 14 – TK

Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta is on the horizon, but it’s not going to be the same show as before. Longtime alums Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams announced they were quitting to pursue other projects, so the Bravo network in turn had to do some serious recruiting. The biggest difference, though, might surprise some fans. Namely, Kenya Moore is proclaiming far and wide how she’s shedding her role as the show’s “villain.” But do we believe her?

Due to the other sudden departures, the 51-year-old is now the second-longest reigning OG of the Atlanta-based reality series, after Kandi Burruss. And in that time, she has garnered quite the reputation for not being well-liked by her co-stars. Kenya Moore was even seen losing her one and only solid friendship with Cynthia Bailey during their stints on the first season of Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip last year. Yet Moore told Entertainment Tonight that she turned a new leaf for Season 14, saying:

I’m the Kenya that I was always meant to be this season. It’s so funny because I think that I got pegged into this villain role and now it’s like, girl, just let someone else have that baton. Here, pass the scepter on. Honey, it’s over for you! I just think I’m back to reclaiming who I was always meant to be on this show. Lighthearted, fun, sassy — I will still tell a bitch off, but I do it with such dignity and grace.

It might seem contradictory to some – to not be a villain but still “tell a bitch off.” But then, they must not know Real Housewives of Atlanta, where castmates have literally made shade-throwing a sport. However, we’ll probably have to take what the star says with a grain of salt anyway, given all the drama going on in the Season 14 trailer. Her co-star, Drew Sidora, previously hinted that amid her return, things got “spicy,” but who knew that entailed cheating speculation and having to be held back by security?

The real villain won’t necessarily be the one in the midst of the fighting – but the one holding the ladle and stirring the pot. Technically, Kenya Moore has been known to partake in both. Her “scepter” reference in fact harkens back to the notorious Season 6 reunion (where the use of several of her “props” in a discussion with Porsha Williams led to Williams literally dragging her to the floor). However, she doubled down that she’s changing the perception about herself in the new season. The RHOA star later told the outlet:

I think that I was just pegged into that villain role really early, and I just was never able to get out of that. I sort of, in my own way, leaned into it and then it was just like, ‘OK, this is old, because now this really isn’t who I am and I hate that I’m even perceived that way.’

Perhaps Kenya Moore’s other reference to handing off the “baton” is actually a hint about the new antagonist of the show. Sanya Richards-Ross is the latest addition to The Real Housewives of Atlanta lineup, and she just so happens to be a four-time Olympic gold medalist in track and field. But alum Sheree Whitfield has also returned to the fold after all following a three-season absence, and Marlo Hampton has finally been upgraded to a main cast member. So really, it’s anyone’s guess who picked up what Moore supposedly put down for good.

My bet is that Kenya Moore isn’t quite as done with poking bears as she’s letting on. Although, wilder things (such as that controversial engagement to a co-star’s ex-husband…) have happened over the last year. Find out what happens when Season 14 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres on May 1 at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo as part of the 2022 TV schedule!
