Spilling the tea!
Kim recently appeared on the Juicy Scoop podcast with Heather McDonald, where she opened up about the “malicious” way Melissa Gorga got cast on RHONJ and some gossip she’s hearing around Franklin Lakes about Teresa’s boyfriend.
It’s no secret that Teresa NEVER wanted her family on RHONJ. Kim claims that Teresa had no idea her sister-in-law Melissa and cousin Kathy Wakile had signed on for season 3 of RHONJ.
According to Kim, Teresa found out that Bravo had cast her family on RHONJ the night before filming for season 3 started.
“Teresa did not know that they signed for that show until the night before the christening,” Kim revealed. “They told her ‘you’re filming the christening [and] your brother and Kathy Wakile signed,’ and I swear I was on the phone with Teresa until one-thirty in the morning. Teresa said, ‘I don’t even want to sign this! I don’t even want to go!’ She was distraught.”
Kim says Melissa was only cast on the show after she sent Bravo a “malicious” tape slamming Teresa. Kim insists that Melissa wouldn’t have been cast any other way since the “true star” of the show, aka Teresa, “couldn’t stand her.”
“Melissa sent in a video to Bravo,” she explained. “And I heard from one of the producers; he told me that if I had seen that video, I would have fell on the floor. It was directly to cut at Teresa. It was to come on [and] to go on the back door of Teresa. They were disgusted because Teresa didn’t bring them in. There was animosity between them, and that’s what got her on the show.”
As RHONJ fans know, Kim and Teresa had a falling out. The former RHONJ friend says that she will never feel “fondly” or “kindly” towards Teresa.
“She back-doors people,” Kim admitted. “And this is what I’m trying to say. She doesn’t have a soul; she doesn’t know how to be a good friend. She goes through friends like I’ve never [seen] and she can’t hold onto a friend because of that reason.”
Kim does claim to wish Teresa “the best.”
When asked if she is happy for Teresa and her “normal” new man, Kim took the opportunity to spill some major tea.
“Well, he’s not normal… I just got a [message] – I didn’t get involved in this, and it’s the first time I’ve minded my own business – but listen, we’re on,” she alleged. “I got a message from a very good friend of mine that used to do my nails stating that he’s seeing her girlfriend too.”
“She goes, ‘Teresa got herself another cad [and] he’s really no good.’ She sent me pictures, and I’m like ‘I’m not getting involved,’” Kim claims.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey will return to Bravo in early 2021.
