“The View” co-host Sherri Shepherd and her husband Lamar “Sal” Sally were enjoying a party over the weekend in the Garden State until one of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey” brought along their infamous drama to the soiree. But before Shepherd could get all of the facts straight, she took to Twitter to condemn the wrong housewife.
“Why am I at a party in Jersey with Sal & one of the New Jersey Housewives gets into an altercation w someone! This is surreal & a #hotmess,” she tweeted. But word must have gotten out that Shepherd was pointing fingers at Teresa Giudice because before long, Shepherd was issuing apologies: “Apology to @Teresa_Giudice … thought you were at the party. I swear you got a doppleganger [sic]! Just as well – the drama didn’t involve you!”
Although the “housewife” in question wasn’t Giudice, it turns out she wasn’t too far off — it was Giudice’s sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga.
“She was at a party I was at,” Gorga explained to me. “I didn’t even meet her. Someone tried to cause a fake fight to get attention because they are trying to be on the new ‘Housewives.’ Someone pretended that they overheard me and [fellow Real Housewife] Kathy talking about a girl in the bathroom that is trying to get on the next season. I knew it was B.S. because we didn’t talk about anyone in the bathroom. So I called them out on it right away. The girl admitted it the next day. It was so stupid they were just trying to get attention.”
Is this how you get on a reality show these days? Bravo, what have you created?
