Viewers were stunned on last week’s episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey when Rino Aprea was accused of sleeping with his wife’s mother, Santa. And according to a new report, producers waited to film the season finale until earlier this week after the drama-filled episode aired.
An insider tells RadarOnline that James Marchese was banned from attending the finale episode which was filmed at an event for Dina Manzo’s Project Ladybug charity. Insiders claim Marchese told Victoria Gotti about Rino’s alleged affair.
â€œProducers waited to film the finale until after the explosive episode about Rino and his mother-in-law having sex aired because they wanted to get that raw emotion captured on camera,â€ the source said. â€œAnd it worked!â€
The source continues, â€œTeresa and her twin sister Nicole went after Amber for what they say are lies Jim is spreading about the family. Dina got very upset that everyone was fighting at her charity event, and Teresa Giudice just hung back and let everyone else act like fools.â€
â€œThere was plenty of alcohol flowing at the event because producers were truly hoping there would be another moment similar to Teresa Giudiceâ€™s infamous table toss,â€ the source said. â€œBut even though it didnâ€™t get quite that dramatic, there were plenty of tears, yelling, and threats of violence.â€
