Rino Aprea Slept With Teresa’s Mother Santa?


Victoria Gotti rocked The Real Housewives of New Jersey Sunday night with shocking allegations that Rino Aprea cheated on his wife Teresa with her mother, Santa Napolitano. Gotti claimed that she was great friends with Rino, and he shared this private information with her when explaining why he and Teresa got divorced.

“He started talking about his divorce,” Gotti tells Teresa Giudice and Amber Marchese. “And he tells me this crazy story and he said, ‘It’s something she will never forgive me for,’ and I said, ‘You cheated…'”

Gotti continued, “He says, ‘Well, it’s who I cheated with.’ I go what her sister? He went, ‘No.’ And I said who then? What would make her… ”

“He just looked at me and he said, ‘Her mother,'” Gotti said.

Stating that Rino was not intoxicated when the conversation took place and that there were other people at the table who heard him say this, Gotti claims she said to Rino, “‘This is how gossip and rumors get started. You need to stop joking.'”

“He just looked at me and went, ‘I’m not joking,'” Victoria said.

Watch the full scene below.

After the episode aired, Rino took to Twitter to release a statement regarding the allegations. “This is a salacious story that has been manufactured to cause hurt to my family. I will not play into this! My wife and son are my life!”

  1. Of course Rino is gonna deny this…unless he sues for defamation of character and slander, can’t really prove this isn’t true. However, gotti can call on all those witnesses he said this in front of..bottom line: WHO cares? Show is tanking!

  2. They’re not allowed per their contracts to sue one another per Carole or she could and should have sued Aviva. Not sure if they can’t sue over anything said on the show or just can’t sue cast members? Gotti isn’t a cast member, so it would be interesting to read one of their contracts.

  3. I have to say with who could sue who thing…I wonder if Santa could sue Gotti? because it just seems to me that Santa is the one who would be humiliated with this story more than anyone else…after I stopped laughing at it I thought even if I heard a weird ass story like this would I repeat it? Nah don’t think I would it is just nasty.

  4. This is disgusting and I’m repulsed that this is what the show has come to. Shame on these people whether this is true or not, shame on BRAVO, it’s GROSS!!!! This show used to have rawness and depth, how sad.

  5. funny that before gotti showed up, they showed rino with the family.. someone said he slept with every ____________, and that part about loving this family…the mother, the wife, the sister… ha ha… now, that has even more context after this revelation. you would think that Bravotv vetted this information before sharing, to avoid lawsuits… so there must be some truth. Rhino, did you ever have sexual relations with that woman?

  6. Anyd said on WWHL that it is not true that their contracts say that they can’t sue each other. Kandi filed suit against Kim when they were both still on RHoA. Paul and Adrienne Maloof filed suit against Brandi Glanvile when they were all still on RHoBH.

  7. This is a pretty sick storyline. One thing though, why would Victiria make up something that vile? Secondly, I can’t imagine dove thing like that NOT ripping a family apart permanently, and the twins and their parents get along too well. Anyway. Maybe this was just a planted story just to juice up the sagging ratings because this son is going nowhere fast. And what a sick, sorid and pathetic attempt at ratings that is. IMO- that just dragged RHONJ even deeper into the toilet. ‘Scuse me while I go spray some Lysol around the TV set.

  8. Why is everyone so up in arms? If you are on these pages it’s because you are drawn into these dramas. Have fun with it and be glad it’s not your life. It’s a great fun show to watch for exactly that reason… to see how these people live and think, “Better them than me!” Junk TV at it’s best. No sitcom could ever come close.

  9. Has anyone noticed how whiney the twins sound, how BORING dina is, and how mcgresio (messymelissa) just keep copying Teresa G.?
    The whole puppy story, didn’t we see that with Teresa & Joe’s Christmas present to the girls? And what’s up with mgresiomessymelissa’s “sudden squealing” (just like her sister in law (Teresa)? Creepy and starting to think that messymelissa is “stalkerish” and psychotic (for an x-stripper, x-shoplifter)…
    mgresiomelissa really is BORING, and needs to buy a clue, be original (oh, wait, that won’t work—too boring)…..
    But the Gotti story? If it’s true, that is really GROSS…… But did anyone notice how quickly “gino” attached, ingratiated himself to Tre & Joe? (maybe for camera time, the guy creeps me out anyway)….

  10. BTW patched the whole of season 5 cos couldn’t stand what it had turned into at end of season 4.
    Pure loving season 6 x
