Help boycott The Real Housewives of New Jersey. The show has taken an ugly and vile turn when it hired the brother and Sister-in-Law to one the show's stars, Teresa's Giudice.
The show has lost all form of entertainment value and has become nothing more than a complete, non-stop attack on cast member Teresa Giudice. Not only is Teresa bullied by her castmates and family, she has also been the victim of bullying by Andy Cohen, Bravo's Executive Producer. While this constant display of hatred has become more than difficult to watch, it has now come to a point of total intolerance with the new attacks directed on small innocent children. From Bravo's executive producer, Andy Cohen, calling 5 year old Maliania Giudice a brat on national television, to the exploitation of 10 year old Gia Giudice during her highly sensitive and emotional state due to the constant attacks on her mother delivered by castmates and family members.
While the parents of this show have signed a contract agreeing to expose their private lives for the world to see, these young children have no say as to what can be aired and what cannot. Bravo has no problem showing the children at their worst and making them look like they are continually misbehaving. This alone is very difficult for children to deal with. If the adults have a hard time dealing with the editing and being made to look like a fool on this show, just imagine how hard it would be for a young child.
Gia is in a constant state of emotion turmoil due to the productions influence to create a story line based around the destruction of a family with the sole intent to break her mother, Teresa Giudice. You can see the effects that the show has had on other children of the show, such as, Ashlee Holmes. The main story line for Jacquelyn Laurita has been to constantly display how out of control her daughter, Ashlee, is in an attempt to create pity and sobbing hearts for Jacquelyn and her family. The price that Ashlee has had to pay by agreeing to be filmed in this light has had an enormous backlash which still affects Ashlee to this day.
With the darkness that now surrounds this show it is impossible to be entertained by it. It breaks millions of hearts with each episode and THIS is NOT why people want to watch these shows. The problem lies mainly within two of the current cast members. Caroline Manzo constantly needs to be the 'top dog' so she stirs the pot to cause trouble within the Giudice and Gorga family in hopes to bring her enemy and one time friend Teresa down. The show hasn't been the same since Caroline has decided to eliminate Teresa at any cost. This was good news for Teresa's sister-in-law who is obsessed with her and wants to run her off the show and out of the family. She plays innocent for the cameras and has manipulated many, including cast members and her husband into believing that she is trying to repair the family. The truth is, none of this family drama and heartache would be public and on our TV if this woman and her husband had not come onto the show with the sole purpose to bring Teresa down. It is no secret that there were problems in the family for some time, so why would one choose to join their family member's show when they know there are so many problems and that the producers want to show all of their dirty laundry. Only someone who is fame hungry and selfish would attempt such an act.
While removing Caroline Manzo and Teresa's Sister-in-Law might not make the show perfect, it would be an amazing start to creating a show that is worthy of watching.
Bravo, stop the bullying, stop the family feud, we don't want to see it!
Please sign this petition to let Bravo know that this type of exploitation is NOT entertaining and we do NOT want to see it. Remove the family and keep it light, keep it fun, keep it 'real'.
