So far, Teresa Giudice has outlived Victoria Gotti, Adam Carolla, Patricia Velasquez, Tia Carrere, Cheryl Tiegs, George Takei, Debbie Gibson, Michael Andretti and Dee Snider on the Celebrity Apprentice. And according to her sister-in-lawand Real Housewives of New Jersey co-star Melissa Gorga, that's not a coincidence.
"I think Teresa being quiet is more of a strategy than anything else," Melissa tells Housewives blogger Lynn N Chicago about T's boardroom survival skills. It may not be Hunger Games, but Melissa adds, "We have been trying to watch each week. It's been fun to watch and I can't believe how intense the boardrooms and challenges are getting."
Not to say there won't be drama, but Melissa promises this season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey won't be as cutthroat as Mr. Trump's competitive gem. "This time around I think the fans are going to get to see a little more of what they are looking for – reconciliation and lots of fun times. You can see from the preview, there was definitely drama and relationships change between the Housewives for the good and the bad. But most of the season was filmed during the summer, so you get to see everyone let loose and have fun down on the shore." Snooki, is that you?
Prepare yourselves – the Jersey Housewives return on April 22.
