My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    How very sad. I wish them God’s consolation during this most trying time. I feel for her father also as he’s lost his most treasured companion. God grant them all His peace.

    Putting all housewife & personality feelings aside, I wish sincere condolences for Theresa, Joe Gorga and their families. You could always tell how close they are to their parents & I’m sure they are gutted at this loss. My prayers are with this family & may God rest her soul.

    My sincere condolences.

  • My deepest condolences, Teresa and Joe. I thought your Mom was great, and a wonderful Mom and Grandma. I liked the scene where you and her were teaching Gia how to make the many jars of Tomato sauce out in the garage the best.
