There are several things the Real Housewives of New Jersey are not shy in using, their hairspray, their cleavage and their kids. These reality TV stars (except for Dina Manzo – who kept her girl out of the spotlight after season 1), don’t seem to have issues highlighting their children on the show. From Teresa’s daughter’s modeling and acting, to Danielle Staub’s daughter’s singing to Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter’s hair pulling….it’s all there for the cameras. And now that there are two new ‘Real Housewives’ on the show, that means two new sets of kids. So who are there new lovely ladies from Jersey and who are their kids?Melissa Gorga (above left) is already part of the family. Her hubby Joe just happens to be Teresa Giudice’s brother. One word to describe her? “Sassy.” They have three children – Antonia who is five, Gino who is three, and baby Joey who is just 11 months. With youngsters like that, I wonder if Teresa and Melissa will compete to see whose kids get the most airtime.
Kathy Wakile (above right) is ALSO already part of the family, she just happens to be Teresa’s first cousin. She has two children but they are on the older side with Victoria being 17 and son Joseph is 15. But she apparently “carefully monitors her children’s social lives,” so you know there may be some drama there!
Do you think it’s unfair for reality TV stars to put their family on the front lines like this?
