Nicole: This is Not 'Jerry Springer'

Nicole Napolitano can't believe Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese would entertain Victoria Gotti's gossip.

By Nicole Napolitano

Hello everyone,

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

This has been a very busy week as you all might have noticed by how late I submitted my blog. The boys are back in school. Joey started high school. I can’t believe my baby is a freshman and Anthony is already a junior. I love how they are in the same school and for the first time they share their lunch period together. Joey is continuing to play football for the high school team and Anthony is playing lacrosse. I absolutely love watching my boys play sports. Joey had his first game this week and his team won! The win was followed by an amazing team pasta dinner, for which of course I dropped off a delicious tray of baked ziti. They are wonderful athletes, but most importantly they have the best team spirit!

Well, I can’t believe next week is the first week of fall. It is one of my favorite seasons. All the mums and pumpkins are already out in Colts Neck. I probably could have waited another  week to get into the fall spirit, but I’m just hoping and praying it lasts as long as possible. Looking at those winter scenes made me realize I better start stocking up on my DuraFlame logs. It was cute watching the snow shoveling scene with Bobby and Teresa. Yes, we really do drink iced coffee in the winter, and yes, as you can see Teresa can dress the part but really isn’t into shoveling or manual labor. Regarding the text messages, in the scheme of things it is actually ridiculous. Even though the WHOLE text message was NOT read out loud, there were more nonsense accusations regarding Bobby and of course me. So I absolutely was not able to advise Bobby to call Amber when she was making accusations that he is with me for the wrong reasons. 

I’m not even going to bring up Amber crying, because the world bashed her enough! 

Amber talking to Jim in her kitchen -- I feel  this whole thing with the invite to bowling got so blown out of proportion. Bobby truly never would want to hurt anyone. Yes, he absolutely told Rino the reason why Jim wasn’t going, but when Jim told Bobby he knew the whole world would eventually hear as well. I think what is more damaging about that conversation was Jim once again trying to ruin Bobby’s reputation with those ridiculous comments about his cheating antics.I was extremely excited to go to Dina’s house that day to talk about Project Ladybug. It felt really good for the first time in a while to all be on the same page. I loved the enthusiasm of all the girls being excited to work together. My sister came up with the best theme, Candyland, since it was a fundraiser for children. Candyland was our favorite game as children, we played it constantly. Can’t wait for you to see how beautifully  the event turned out.

Looking back at the day at Dina’s house, I should have been honest when Amber asked what we were talking about. I should have told her Bobby read the text to me and that Jim is the one who should be texting Bobby, not her, and the accusations she made in the text really hurt my feelings. The reason why I opted not to tell her is I just didn’t want another confrontation, and I truly wanted to move forward in our relationship. However after seeing the conversation between Teresa Giudice and can can these two women talk about keeping a secret from us when they divulged the false, deceitful secret to the whole world?


I was truly excited about going away with the girls to Florida and having the guys meeting us down there! I was looking forward to having bonding time and really taking Teresa Giudice’s mind off of everything she’s been going through. I truly was an amazing friend to her and never ever asked ANY questions, just always let her know we were praying for her. And on top of that, we never allowed anyone to speak negatively about her or her family. I knew we were on the same page with how IMPORTANT family is to us. Although I only knew Teresa for a short time, I watched out for her and felt very protective, trying to make sure nothing would upset her. I felt we had a nice bond going, but after seeing this episode, I realized I was so sensitive to her feelings yet I don’t feel she reciprocated. First off, I don’t think anyone was surprised this was going to take place. This is not Mob Wives and this is not Jerry Springer. How could two women sit there and even say in an interview that this could actually happen!? You knew through our talks how strongly we feel about family. Teresa Giudice and Amber, I would never make anyone say anything disrespectful about your mothers! That’s where we differ, because I would never let anyone speak about one of your children or parents! On a wonderful, positive note I love my sweet Abagail, who I speak to on a daily basis. I was blessed to have met her on Twitter. I have had the pleasure of meeting her a couple of weeks ago in person when Bobby and I went to Las Vegas and spent a couple of days with her. She is the most beautiful 7 year old. Regardless of all that she has been through and is still battling, she has so much joy in her heart and constantly loves to laugh. This family has been through a lot and her mom works long night shifts so she can be home with her during the day. There is a fund set up for anyone who would like to help this fabulous family, which I met personally. Financial stress is something they just don’t deserve especially when it comes to certain medications not covered for their daughter. Abagail has a Twitter account if anyone would like to follow her and send her good wishes. You will also fall in love with her like I did, Abbey’s Awareness @Abbeysawareness. if anyone would like to donate.


Thank you to my Twitter family, who is so supportive and such amazing fans. You have made this journey an amazing one! May God bless you all!

Much love and happiness,

Nicole xoxo
