‘Real Housewives Of New Jersey’ Producers Faking Scenes And Feeding Lines?
Many of the Real Housewives of New Jersey ladies will argue that what you see on the show is very real: their arguments, their friendships, their business ventures, and even their prison sentences. However, it sounds like some of the producers like to get the shots just perfect, and they don’t mind inserting themselves into the scenes to make it happen. Melissa Gorga recently did her fashion show, and some eyewitnesses are questioning how real the show is after seeing the producers get involved.
According to a new Radar Online report, the Real Housewives of New Jersey producers are now being accused of pushing the ladies to say certain things, and they are even shuffling the ladies around when they are filming to get the perfect shots. Many will argue that this doesn’t make the show real even though the plot doesn’t change necessarily.
“On several occasions, they rearranged the women so that the camera guys could capture the shot that they wanted,” an eyewitness has revealed, adding, “They moved the women around in the frame like they were pieces on a checker board.”
This isn’t the first time that the Real Housewives franchise has been criticized for not showing the real aspects of these women’s lives. However, moving them around in a scene is apparently just the tip of the iceberg. The Real Housewives of New Jersey producers were also whispering in people’s ears about what was going on, and they were also caught doing several takes to get the perfect shot.
“One of the production crew whispered something into Dolores Catania’s ear just before she got on set,” the witness said, sharing, “I am pretty sure he was feeding her lines. While Dolores and Siggy Flicker showed up, they had to do two takes because the directors weren’t happy with the first one.”
When the show was over, the production crew started removing hidden microphones that they had supposedly placed in the lights, ceiling, and walls. It seems a little drastic, especially since the ladies do wear microphones themselves.
“I was shocked by how much effort the crew put into molding a scene to be exactly the way they wanted it to be,” the source revealed about what went down at Melissa’s fashion show.
But one thing that wasn’t discussed was the drama with Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita. Laurita decided to come back on the show, but she’s supposedly not happy about filming with the ladies. Catania had revealed that she didn’t want to discuss the feud going on with Jacqueline in front of the cameras. According to In Touch, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Laurita was supposedly threatened to be fired if she didn’t show up to Melissa’s fashion show. And when she was a no-show, rumors quickly started spreading on Twitter.
“Teresa hasn’t missed any filming with the cast, and has been on time the entire season,” a source has revealed, adding that producers were “absolutely furious Jacqueline refused to show up for the fashion show because it was mandatory that everyone be there. Jacqueline didn’t let anyone know she wasn’t coming until the last possible minute. There was absolutely no reason why she shouldn’t have been there.”
It sounds like the feud between Jacqueline and the Real Housewives of New Jersey women is very real, but the show could be highly influenced by the Real Housewives producers. Even though the ladies say it is real, one has to wonder how much of it would have happened without the crew there.
