On a recent episode of the reality TV drama Real Housewives of New Jersey, guest star Victoria Gotti (daughter of the late mob boss John Gotti) told two of the Real Housewives, Amber Marchese and Teresa Giudice that fellow housewife Teresa Aprea’s husband Rino once slept with Teresa’s mother. There are worse things for a wife to hear, surely–we just can’t think of one right now.
So RHONJ couple Teresa and Rino Aprea sat down with a journalist from OK! to address a number of issues including the rumor about Teresa’s mother, Santa, and Rino getting busy. Teresa and Rino deny there’s any truth to the rumor. Teresa said of Victoria Gotti: “People do things for money. When you’re a has-been, you do anything to put your name in the spotlight and get on TV.” Teresa and Rino own the Little Italy restaurant Angelo’s on Mulberry Street, just a few doors down from Umberto’s Clam House (where legendary mobster Joey “Crazy Joey” Gallo was shot down in the 70s). Among Crazy Joey’s many offenses, he had allegedly called the wrong person a has-been. Just sayin’.
