Jacqueline & Chris Laurita List Home for Sale

Jacqueline & Chris Laurita List Home for Sale

Laurita Home ListingThe Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita and her husband Chris list their Franklin Lakes, New Jersey home for sale.  The couple bought the home back in 2002 for $1,720,000 according to tax records and are asking $2,850,000 according to real estate website Zillow.

Looking at recent sales via tax records it appears the Laurita’s have significantly over priced their home to the tune of almost $1,000,000.  With the exception of one home, recent sales have been in the $300 per square foot range, the Laurita’s are at $502 per square foot.

If you take the most recent comparable (highlighted below) which is much bigger than theirs and sits on a considerably bigger lot, the Laurita’s home sits on approximately a 76,00 square foot lot, the home, if I were listing it, should be listed at approximately $324 per square foot.  Taking all this into consideration and if they want a quick sale, the home should be listed between $1,838,376 (low-end) and $2,133,424 (high-end $376 per sq. ft.).

Back in March 2013 the Laurita were allegedly facing foreclosure on this home, at which time the estimated value was $1,808,435.  Currently Zillow Zestimates (notoriously incorrect), the value of the home at $2,320,391.  Either way you slice it the home is overpriced. The Internal Revenue Service has placed federal tax liens on all the Laurita’s properties for unpaid taxes totaling almost $95,000, according to public records. 

One thing I do find interesting about the on-line listing is that the listing agents claims in the marketing remarks that this is the first time the home has been on the market, claiming the Laurita’s are the original owners.  According to tax records the home was built in 2001, the Laurita’s purchased it in February of 2002, things that make you go hmmmmm.

I guess now that Jacqueline is no longer on The Real Housewives of New Jersey there’s no need to live in the big manse with all the put on pretense. Hmmm, wonder if their moving to the much smaller home in Wayne, NJ?  They purchased the Wayne home back in November of 2007.  Notice the date?  It’s right after the real estate market crashed nationwide, nothing like hedging your bets!

    I honestly think it all just caught up with Chris. Chris makes deceptive choices. Has friends who regularly partake in white colar crimes with great self entitlement.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Trying to reply to RX, but have been having problems with the reply function today. If you are including Joe Giudice as one of Chris’ friends, I have to agree with you about partaking in white collar crimes. But, if you don’t mean Juicy Joe, what friends do you mean?

    • Dr Seuss

      Hi RX. Do tell?

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Can you please elaborate?? These cryptic posts drive me crazy with no follow up!!!! Thanks.

      • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

        I think RX is trying to say Chris is a shady as Juicy

        • https://twitter.com/ResearcherX/favorites RX

          yes in my opinion

      • Kjibbers

        Ed can not elaborate because he stole the posts off of Famewhorgas, that is why. Lisa asked Fame what the deal was with Melissa and Fame left a long reply to her and mentioned the Us Weekly Article also.
        What are the odds that Ed has two posts up right after Fame was the first to announce that the Lauritas were selling their house and Fame also told Lisa the Gorgas did not sell their house. Ed needs to credit her. He reads her site all the time.
        Also, the Brandi Glanville post. He never got an email. He once again put his own spin on it and copied off of Tamara Tattles. I can’t wait for the truth to come out how he messed up.

        • twifan2

          Oh PULLLEEEZZZ!
          He did elaborate. Go and read for yourself.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          @Kjibbers:disqus Give it up child, you seem to want to prove something, yet timestamps refute all your claims.

          Reading comprehension is a great thing, NAWS was asking RX to elaborate, not me.

          I want you to bring your so called evidence.

          • twifan2

            Ed, I think Kjibs was just jumping in with their comment. :/

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              No Twi, Kjibbers is a troll account, created 2 days ago with the sole intent on causing problems here. All 7 posts are only here at TVFB and all trying to insinuate that I’m stealing from other sites.

              • twifan2

                Oh ok then. The troll is trying to put their 2 cents in & wanting change back! ;D

              • Babson_Chick

                Someone just wants to come on here to cause trouble. Good Gravy – we’re getting along on here just fine without all that. Don’t need the losers to bother us. Cheers!!

              • Tre’s Twits aren’t Angelic

                I fail to see the importance of one site picking up information from another as being any big deal.

                For example another site with “on line” in their name reported that the Giudice’s had created a rather less than elegant Christmas card. Now between 2 to 3 days PRIOR, I had seen a UK site post on this same card. Now “on line” gave no credit what-so-ever to the UK site.

                So, really, what’s the big deal that Kjibbers (troll extraordinaire, I suppose) uses this as a full court press for you or anyone else to credit anywhere or anyone else.

                It appears that Kjibbers was attempting to discredit Ed by throwing mud, and in fact the mud was boomeranged back with a solid face shot to Kjibbers.

                Funny, isn’t it, how that sort of happens more often than not.

                • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                  Those who claim to have solid facts and threaten to use them very very rarely do. In KJibbers case she went combing for facts after claiming she already had them.

                  A Google search today confirmed which alcoholic blog she came from!

    • Marsbars09

      That’s too bad. I really like Chris for his mellow, even tempered ways. I guess a lot has been revealed since he’s been on the show.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I like Chris, too. People have been too eager to create dirt where it doesn’t exist with the Lauritas that I really have to have proof before I believe he is shady.

        • Birdie11

          He strikes me as actually having integrity…shocking for the NJ crew.

      • Dr Seuss

        Mars!!! Welcome back dear :-)…Nice seeing you again.

        Doing the Happy Dance!!!!!

        • Marsbars09

          Nice hearing from you as well, Doc.

          Have you informed Izzy of this site?

          • Dr Seuss

            Thank you! Yes I have and she has commented on some threads. She’s been busy lately but plans to participate more.

            • Babson_Chick

              Good to know!!

  • WestCoastFeed

    Jac claimed that they refinanced not long after that pre-foreclosure listing.
    Are you the first blogger to catch this, I hope.?

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      According to tax records the home has not been refinanced since 2007. Now it’s possible they made an arrangement with the bank, which I seem to recall reading somewhere. But, if memory serves me, that arrangement was made prior to the 2013 foreclosure proceedings and included a clause about missing one payment.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Well, it’s not a foreclosure sale. It’s a sale by owner. What I am also wondering is whether his Signature Apparel bankruptcy is finally concluded and if that has something to do with their deciding to sell and probably downsize.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          I didn’t say it was a foreclosure sale. They somehow managed to cure the delinquency/delinquencies that put them in that alleged foreclosure proceeding in 2013.

          As for the company bankruptcy I have heard that one account has been settled, not sure about the rest.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I was just making an observation, not trying to accuse you of misinformation, Ed. I appreciate that you make the effort to get facts right on this blog while still being humorous. The last I saw on the bankruptcy was just a decision disallowing an attorney from withdrawing from the case.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              No probs.

              I had read somewhere in the last couple days that one of the creditors had settled. I’ll have to see if I can find that again.

              • WestCoastFeed

                Thanks. That bankruptcy has been going on forever.

                • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                  Yes it has. Wouldn’t be surprised if the sale of this home has something to do with the BK settlement.

                  If I were them and the alleged fraud is true, I’d take a look at the Giudice case and try to settle with everyone. Although Joe and Chris would make a nice prison couple.

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    I’ll be really disappointed if Chris cooked the Signature Apparel books. He always struck me as an upright guy.

            • Dr Seuss

              you’re such a sweet lady.

              • ohdearme

                ROTFLMAO, WCF has always had a soft spot for this couple, it is sweet. But they’re up to their eyeballs in dirt.

                • WestCoastFeed

                  Yes, I especially have a soft spot for Chris. And of course, the two boys.

                  • ohdearme

                    Chris because of the “hot” factor? I know a lot of people think he’s the hottie of the show. Has Jac posted Nick’s progress lately?

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Because of the calm. even temperament. He is nice looking, but I don’t find him “hot.” The last tweet about NIck’s progress was at Christmas when Jac said that he was beginning to put words together and could actually say, “Merry Christmas.”

                    • ohdearme

                      Oh good for Nick, yeah I will say he seems very level headed especially during the table flipping, after Melissa and Joe joined I tuned OUT!

                    • Babson_Chick

                      That’s great news!!

                • Dr Seuss

                  you ain’t ever lie.

                  • ohdearme

                    I don’t get the warm and fuzzy feeling about any of them lol, I read the recaps and just wait lol.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Hahaha! I hear ya. That’s the best way to do it…these mofo’s will let you down every damn time. smh!!!

                    • Birdie11

                      It would be such a bummer if Chris turned out to be a skeeze like the rest of them. I think he is elevating Jaq to be her best…I can only imagine her without him.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      I really hope not. I too liked him a lot.

                    • Babson_Chick

                      I so agree with your statement “he is elevating Jaq to be her best” she had a stormy past it seems but meeting Chris changed her life in a big way. He was much better trying to help with her daughter than she was.

          • Kjibbers

            Ed,
            You need to do the right thing and credit famewhorgas for this post.
            Just as you need to credit Tamara Tattles for the post about Brandi Glanville you stole and put your own twist on it.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              KJibber get the fuck out of here with your bullshit. Apparently you love to come here to cause problems.

              The Brandi post, I posted it at 6:11pm January 7th, Tamara posted it 3:20 later at 9:31pm. Again the screen shots are attached for your viewing pleasure.

              As for the real estate posts, check with Doc Seuss and RX, I was asked about the Laurita sale, and asked if the Gorga home had closed escrow, which caused me to look into both.

              Before you come her making wild accusations you might want to check your facts.

              • twifan2

                Looks like someone is having a hissy fit for being out posted. :)

          • Kjibbers

            You obviously read the comments on Famewhorgas and came up with the Melissa post also. It is not a coincidence that Fame has a post on The Lauritas selling their home, the comments ask about Melissa and all of a sudden you have two new posts.
            You’re a realitor, so once again, you were able to put your spin on it and look up the property records on a different site to make it look like your own “Exclusive” again.

            I would not deny either if I were you about Tamara because the person who sent the source alerted the intended websites. You your self said it was making the blogosphere, but you and a Tamara were the only ones who posted it. There is so much more evidence that you once again took someone else’s work and put your own spin on it.
            Be a man Ed.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              Wrong again Kjibbers, but thanks for playing. This was up way before Fame-Whorgas, looking at time stamps again (damn they get you every time), Fame posted about the Laurita’s well after I did, I’m guessing around 8pm based on their first comments. My post went up at noon.

              First comment asking about Melissa and Joe’s house on FW was at 11:09 PM, my article posted at 1:02PM.

              Those damn pesky timestamps fuck your argument up every time.

  • WestCoastFeed

    My memory is that Jac & Chris lived with Caroline while they were waiting for this house to be built. The realtor who also posted it calls it custom built.

  • Babson_Chick

    Well I was interested until I read that the house comes with “pool plans”. Big Whoop, I need a pool that’s good to go. Am not really surprised about the house being up for sale and I’ll bet there’s more of the HW’s that will be scaling down soon.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      Well now that their shows are all being canceled, it wouldn’t surprise me to see them all moving to a nice trailer!

      • Babson_Chick

        LOL – see my comment on the Gorga’s house.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I think the Manzos are the only ones that we can feel assured are in good financial shape.

          • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

            Is it safe to assume we won’t be seeing the Laurita’s as regulars on the show? I mean they can’t be seen on TV without the manse, can they?

            • WestCoastFeed

              They certainly haven’t been spotted in any of the filming that has leaked so far. Other bloggers are saying that their sources claim that Jac has been fired from NJ. But she can still make cameos, but more likely on the Manzo spin-off.

              • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                Sorry I was talking about the Manzo show. Yeah, it appears she’s been canned from the RHONJ.

                Rumor has it that Ashley was sent to California at the request of production to “write” for that blog because she was caught leaking information about filming.

                • WestCoastFeed

                  I do hope to see her somewhere, just because I’d like to be kept up-to-date on the progress of her darling little boy. Well, not just because. I do like Jac, even though I can get very impatient with the immaturity she has shown on twitter.

                  As far as I can tell, Ashley has improved slightly since the move to California, with the emphasis on slightly.

                  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    I believe Ashley is back living in NJ

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Yes, for now. She just had botox treatments by that doctor that Jac has gone into business with. And she has a lingerie shoot scheduled somewhere. it is said that she plans to return to California for beauty school.

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Probably.

                  I believe that. Ashley is a little twit with no filter.

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    I just checked her twitter. She is back in LA.

                      Honey that blog is a glorified LiveJournal, anyone can sign up for an account and write for them. She ain’t getting a dime from that mess.

          • Babson_Chick

            We shall see. Guessing Joe does construction work.

            • WestCoastFeed

              Both Joes do construction work. It does look like Juicy is still working, too. People seem to think that Tre is the sole bread winner, but his company is still in business–Modern Era Construction, or some similar name.

    • Marsbars09

      That house is beautiful. I’d buy it if I had the dough. I’d also have a pool, jacuzzi, and pool house built.

      • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

        What, no hot pool boy?

        • Marsbars09

          He’ll be installed at a later time. :)

      • Babson_Chick

        Agree – would have to have a great pool and everything cool to go with it.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Homes dot com lists the last sale date as 02/25/2002, and they estimate the value at $2.199,200.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      Ooops you are correct, the 2007 date was a refinance date. Still the home built in 2001

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      Here’s the correct sale date.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Interesting that the house is in Chris’ name, not joint tenancy.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      It’s always been in Chris’ name only. They divorce, Jac has no claim to the house. Nor does she have any claim to the proceeds from the house.

      • WestCoastFeed

        If he is greatly in debt on the house, this may be to her advantage.

      • Marsbars09

        Is that part of New Jersey’s divorce law?

      • https://twitter.com/ResearcherX/favorites RX

        Not true in my opinion and experience. Jac has a 50% marital claim.

        • Dr Seuss

          yeah…that’s what I’m thinking too.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          That would depend on what she signed during the home and subsequent refinanced. If she signed a “sole and separate” document, she’ll get zilch even if NJ is a community property state.

          Now if they have a joint checking account and money from that account is used to pay any bill related to the house, she might be entitled to some of the proceeds. It’s a very slippery slope and something tells me that Chris keeps his money in a separate account and writes Jac an allowance check to deposit in her account.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Teresa once said contemptuously that Jac had to ask Chris for as little as $100 to shop. So, I think he probably controls all the finances.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              Oh, now that you mention that, I remember it. I think it was during a reunion

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          New Jersey is not a community property state, that said with Jac not being listed on title, she’s not entitled to any proceeds from the home.

          And, in NJ, the non-titled spouse is not required to sign a “sole and separate” document, that document is only required in community property states like California & Texas.

    • Dr Seuss

      His name may be on the loan only and both their names on the deed. Couples buying a house may sometimes use only one spouse’s credit to obtain the loan for better mortgage rates but then put both their name on the deed.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Interesting, thanks.

        • Dr Seuss

          you’re welcome!

      • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

        Nope, banks have disallowed a non-obligated party from being on the deed. Non-obligated meaning obligated to repay the loan.

        • Dr Seuss

          When did they change this rule? I bought my house in 2005 under those circumstances and so did my bff in 2009.

          • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

            It’s been that way in the 12 going on 13 years I’ve been in the mortgage and real estate business.

            Now that doesn’t stop someone from filing another deed after escrow has closed. In this case another deed has never been filed. Chris is the only person named on the deed.

            • Dr Seuss

              Nope! Not in Texas it’s not. I bought my house in 2005 and the deed filing was done once, right in our mortgage lenders office. No second filing.

              You have a copy of the Laurita’s deed?

                The tax records just list his name. Do they take the name from the deed?

                • Dr Seuss

                  No they don’t….well not in Texas they don’t.

              • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                Tax records show all names on the deed, if a new deed is filed it will show the prior transfer info. Meaning if it was refiled under Jac and Chris it would show the seller as Chris and the buyer as Jac and Chris.

                • Dr Seuss

                  They don’t do that way in every state. Here in Texas, tax records are originated from the name on the mortgage not the deed. Seldom does the names on the deed filter into anything public.

                  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    Well that makes Texas unique. Deed are recorded with the county Assessor/Recorders office, which is the office where tax assessments are made.

                    You are correct the original information on tax records is pulled from the real estate transaction mortgage documents, once subsequent documents are filed (new deeds, tax liens, etc), county tax records are updated. The updates are called “chain of title.” The “chain of title” is used to determine who has a lawful right to the property.

                    In the issue of liens the “chain of title” is used to pay off the holders of the lien in order the liens were filed on the property, taxes liens typically take priority over other liens. The mortgage holder is normally in the first position.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      That makes sense. But you know Texas is slow as molasses with everything. I bet you they never update their title records and if you inquire about “chain of title” they’ll think it’s a chili cook-off. Heck, I’ve called 911 on drunk drivers and they put me on hold. lmao!! ;-)

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      Hey at least they answered. I was in San Diego last month, called 911 to report the homeless dude masturbating in front of the hotel housekeeping office. When they finally answered, I’m talking like 10 mins of ringing, they told me to hang up and call another number. When I explained I was driving and couldn’t right the number down, she hung up on me.

                    • shayvoe

                      Not just unique to Texas. We did the same in Alabama.

                  • shayvoe

                    Not in my state either, as mine was exactly like yours in 2006.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Same here Shay. It looks like the rules vary from state to state. Interesting all the stuff we learn here.

                • shayvoe

                  My loan and deed were all done at closing. There was nothing refilled. My name had been on the deed since the day we closed.

        • shayvoe

          Hi Ed… Actually that’s not true. We built our house in 2006 and only husband’s name is on the loan, but both of our names are on the deed. As a matter of fact, it is a law in my state that regardless of who takes out the loan, both spouses names must be on the deed.

          • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

            I’ve never heard of such law, which state is this?

            • shayvoe

              I put it further down in another post, but Alabama. We did our loan exactly like Doc did, and the mortgage broker told us that my name had to be on the deed, because it was a law in Alabama that both spouse’s names must be on the deed. It was a moot point, because we intended to do it like that anyway.

              • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                Just looked up Alabama property laws. Alabama is not a community property state, sound like your mortgage broker was looking out for your best interest, there is no such real estate law requiring both spouses to be on the deed.

                Jersey is also not a community property state, which means that if the home is titled or deeded in one spouses name, they other spouse has no claim to the property.

                • shayvoe

                  ALABAMA

                  Alabama law presumes that real estate conveyed or deeded to a husband or wife
                  during their marriage is a tenancy in common unless the conveyance expressly
                  states another type of tenancy is created. During a marriage, a husband and wife
                  may separately sell or mortgage real estate without their spouse signing onto
                  it. The spouse may have an inheritance right, sometimes referred to as a dower,
                  courtesy, or statutory share, in the real estate and usually the spouse joins in
                  signing a contract, deed or mortgage. Alabama requires that in the case of sale
                  or mortgage of the homestead, both spouses sign the contract, deed or mortgage.
                  Alabama Code §6-10-3; 30-4-30-31.

                  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    That applies to homesteading. If you’re not homesteading the home the non mortgage obligated spouse is not required to be on the deed.

                    • shayvoe

                      Homesteading….lol. Does that still exist?

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      Believe it or not, it’s still in play in a lot of states.

                    • shayvoe

                      That’s crazy.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      It has been about 50 years now, but my brother homesteaded some land in the desert here in California.

                    • shayvoe

                      Hmmm…interesting. I always think of that Elvis movie, “Follow That Dream” when I hear about homesteading. It was a funny movie as Elvis movies go.

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      While outdated, it’s actually a good protection for a homeowner. Basically it prevents a creditor or lien-holder from being able to force the sale of your property to collect what’s due them.

                    • shayvoe

                      Hmmm…good to know, you learn something new everyday. Thanks.

      • shayvoe

        Hi Doc! That is true. When we built our house we took out the loan in my hub’s name only, but were going to put my name on the deed. Then we found out in my state it is a law that you must put the spouse on the deed regardless of whose name the loan is in, so it was a moot point then. I would imagine that is the case with Chris’ and Jac’s house too. Hope you are having a great weekend.

        • Dr Seuss

          Hi my lovely Shay! Glad to see you posting again!!

          My hubby and I shared the same experience. And my bff as well. I would imagine Jac’s name is on the deed. I couldn’t imagine why it wouldn’t be.

          My weekend so far has been great. The hubby FINALLY took down the xmas decorations from the yard. The year is off to a good start–yahoo! :-) Hope you’re having a relaxing weekend.

  • Dr Seuss

          Got it lol, no prob, I’m trying to think how to get in touch with some of the others. lol

  • WestCoastFeed

    No reaction from either Jac or Chris to this news. They may just be unaware that it has hit the twitterverse and the blogosphere.

    • Dr Seuss

      Oooh I would think they’re very aware just embarrassed (maybe). I wonder if Caroline and Al will help them out? Where will they move to?

      • WestCoastFeed

        They just might move in with Caroline again. That’s where they lived while they were waiting for this house to be built.

        • Dr Seuss

          Oh wow! How would that look? I’m sure Caroline would be happy to have them but that would make them look down & out–destitute.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Caroline took Dina in after her first divorce. She has Frannie living there now. I think she’d welcome them back with open arms and even encourage them to move in.

        • Marsbars09

          WCF, doesn’t the article state they own a home in Wayne?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes. but when I searched for that home, it is in Franklin Lakes and was purchased last August. I just haven’t asked Ed to explain it yet.

            • Dr Seuss

              That’s odd because Franklin Lakes and Wayne are far apart.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Doc! The article states they own a home in Wayne, correct? If Caro & Al don’t help them I’m sure someone within their large family will.

        • Dr Seuss

          Hi Mars! GREAT seeing you here. I missed you.

          Good point. They’ll likely go to their house in Wayne

                • Dr Seuss

                  Same here! The serve no point to a small family. IMO

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    When they first began building them around where I live, I asked a realtor friend who on earth was buying them. She told me then that it was mostly Asians who moved the entire extended family in with them. That makes some sense, but for others I just don’t get it.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      I agree. In my neck of the woods, it’s the same, mostly large extended Indian families… which makes sense but not a family of four. That’s such a waste and beyond silly.

                WCF recommended me to check it out.

        • WestCoastFeed

          I am trying to remember a conversation I had some time back about a title transfer from the elder Lauritas to Chris. It was one of the $1 transfer of title deeds. I think that must have been for the property in Mahwah that Chris and the Manzo boys used as offices for blk. I wonder if that is when Chris bought the Wayne property and if that is where the older parents are now living?

          • Marsbars09

            I have no idea.

            • WestCoastFeed

              It’s been so long now, that I don’t know where to look, It was someone who thought Chris was taking advantage of his father by buying his house for $1. So, she probably got her information from either Fame or Faux both bloggers try to paint Teresa’s cast members as evil. But both bloggers have had to remove some of their most irresponsible blogs.

              • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                What county is that home in? I can try to find records tomorrow to answer your question.

                • WestCoastFeed

                  Bergen County, if it is the house I am thinking of. On Airmont? I am unsure of the spelling of that street.

                  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    Ok I found nothing other than the property up for sale for Chris, and there’s a Patricia, Gary & Diane, Louis & Alice and a Matthew, but none on that street name. Possibly sold?

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      I found it in the tax records. Chris is still listed as owner in 2013. 2 Airmont Ave. I wonder when he took title to it.

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      Ok that property was sold by Joseph Laurita on August 30, 2013 – it sold for $680,000

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Joseph is either the father or Chris’ brother and business partner in Signature Apparel. Joseph Sr or Jr

                      Ok there’s more. In 1999 Michael Laurita sold the property, and in 2003 Annette bought the property back from the person Michael sold it to. She held the property up until the $1 sale to Chris.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Annette must be Nettie Laurita the mother.

                For some reason, this situation reminds me of when Joey Gorga sold his parents’ home right from under their feet without their knowledge. I know his father wanted to kick his ass over that.

                • WestCoastFeed

                  But, do we know that it was without his father’s knowledge? That’s just the kind of innuendo that Fame is famous for.

                  • Marsbars09

                    When you mentioned that the senior Laurita may have been taken advantage of by one of his sons it just reminded me of what Joey did.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      I am just not convinced that it wasn’t mutually agreed to by both Joey and his father.

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      I agree WCF, there’s so much love their for the parents, I think they agreed to it.

                    • Marsbars09

                      Of course it wasn’t! That’s one of the main reasons Joey’s parents are so pissed with him.

                      WCF, we do watch the same show, correct? Yes, the senior Gorgas do not like Mel, but they are understandably pissed with Joey selling their house. Please don’t forget there are plenty other issues the viewing audience isn’t privy to.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      We’ll just have to agree to disagree on this one. And I urge you not to take much stock in the insinuations and innuendo that the hate bloggers publish.

        Ed, did you leave off a chart? That house on Calusa Trail is in Franklin Lakes and was sold in August. It is another big house. I am confused.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          What house on Calusa Trail? The Laurita’s only have one home, the one mentioned above, under their name in Franklin Lakes.

          • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

            Just ran their name again, only one house in Franklin Lakes.

            • WestCoastFeed

              He did own the Laurita family home in Mahwah which they used for blk offices until they relocated in Hoboken. It looks like he has sold that home. I wonder where his parents are living?

              • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                In an apartment over a garage?

                • WestCoastFeed

                  I think that the father may have Alzheimer’s or some other really debilitating condition. He did not go to Jaime Laurita’s wedding because he had suffered a concussion in a fall. But Nettie is active and cheerful and keeps making those bracelets that she sells for some charity.

                  • Marsbars09

                    I’ve always wondered why Caro is so angry. From what they’ve shown of her mother she seems so sweet and easy going. Caro’s father seems OK as well. I wonder if Caro’s parents were really strict while raising eleven children and the upbringing affected her or if she is just personally unhappy. WCF, you appear to like the Lauritas. Could you shed some light on this?

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Good morning, Mars

                      Caroline is not always angry. She was during season 4 when she was so fed up with Teresa that she could barely abide being around her. She admitted that she did not like the person that she was during that season. I watch Caroline’s tweets and can see that she is really a warm, loving, kind woman who has a wonderful relationship with her family and friends. She is not an unhappy woman.

                    • julyol1972

                      Hi West! I’ve always liked Caro a lot too. She’s always seemed pretty genuine especially in comparison to the others. I just don’t think she has any patience with the foolishness and drama! Looking forward to at least checking out her show!

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Hi. July. I’ll be watching, too. And I really hope they show the family’s funny, bantering moments together. I am ready for some happy shows from Bravo.

                    • twifan2

                      Hi Hi WCF! :)
                      I agree. Bravo needs to cahnge their programming format before the RHW shows all sink.

                    • noarguingwithstupid

                      She was always the most likeable of all of them. I always enjoy her and I am glad she is getting her own show!

                    • twifan2

                      I’d watch. :)
                      Better than the game on now. :(
                      COME ON SF! :)

                    • Marsbars09

                      Hi WCF!
                      I’m not going to argue with someone that admires the Manzos so much. :)
                      Happy posting.

                • WestCoastFeed

                  Funny, but now that I think about it, I wonder if they are living in the Wayne house.

          • WestCoastFeed

            The one circled in red in the above chart.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              That’s not the Laruita’s, that’s a comparable recent sale of a much larger house on a much much larger lot.

              • WestCoastFeed

                Okay, I misunderstood what you were posting. Do you have the address of the house in Wayne. Or did I miss spotting it in your blog?

                • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                  I do, but didn’t post it. It’s a little over 2,000 sq. ft.

  • Marsbars09

    The sale of the Lauritas’ home was inevitable, so I’m not surprised by this. However, they want more than the value of the home just because they were on TV? It sounds similar to the situation with Mel and Joey. Didn’t they want more for their house than what it’s worth?
    I did not know the Lauritas’ owned a home in Wayne. I guess they can nestle there once the “big house” is sold. I hope they get a fair price for their home as they have a lot bills, debt, and lawsuits to settle. Also they need money for baby Nic’s education and therapy.

    • Dr Seuss

      I agree, Mars. A seller can ask for whatever they want but it doesn’t mean they’ll get their asking price. I can’t imagine anyone paying over $1 million of the value because the home was featured on a tv show. That would be a foolish business investment if they did. And yes, they do need the cash.

  • Birdie11

    They are counting on the Housewives link to bring in a cash buyer willing to overpay? If anything that would be a deterrent! It seemed like Chris was stressed financially during last season, obviously it’s time to cut back. I don’t know why anyone would want to clean these gigantor houses anyway.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi again, Birdie. I just posted an earlier comment that these housewives are hoping to get what they ask for just because they’re on TV.
      And regarding the enormous houses, I would need to hire a cleaning service. There’s no way in hell I can clean those mansions by myself. :)

  • WestCoastFeed

    I just learned that Dina Manzo’s name is really Claudine. Sorry, but that makes me chuckle.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      That makes sense, Caroline, Francine, Claudine, notice the “ine” trend!!!

      • WestCoastFeed

        I wonder if Cookie is Aline.

        • Dr Seuss

          Cookie.. I love a good old school name

    • Marsbars09

      Really? I wonder if Dina originated from Claudine.

  • Dr Seuss

    Now there’s a thought! Just picturing that scene in my head, that would be hilarious–LMAO!!

  • julyol1972

    Hi Ed, have a question. Could the asking price for the Lauritas house be based also on renovations they’ve done within it. Like a new kitchen, larger closets like a walk-in, and updating and/or completely re-doing the bathrooms for instance? I know the asking price for a house can be increased due to renovating those things.

  • Kjibbers

    Ed, you get angry when caught in a lie.
    You two are on different time zones.
    You can make a post on the dashboard say anytime. You were so upset as you called it that you did not tweet it until 4:00 am their time. Do you want me to post for all your commenters what the person said so you and your commenters can see? They said you put your spin on it and said it was making the blog rounds.
    There is no contact email for you this site either so how did this person email you Ed?
    Your first line was nothing more pisses you off when someone uses the contact form to contact you anonymously then you said you got an anonymous email.
    There is so much more damaging evidence. The person had never heard of you.
    Thank Tamara for not embarrassing you and posting.
    I guest blog at one of the blogs it was sent to and we chose not to post it. I normally would reply directly to a comment but your button to send a voice mail takes up half the screen.
    Your angry reaction is one of a guilty person Edward.
    Be aware commenters, when someone shows you who they are — believe them.

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Goodbye and good riddance to you!!!!!!

      Sure go ahead and post the rewteet, but don’t forget to go through my TL and post the original tweet upon publication. Here allow me to give you the original tweets:

      No go check the timestamps.

      • julyol1972

        Like most trolls who have nothing to back up their innuendo, when you call them out on their lies, you’re either angry, a h8ter, jealous, or D, all of the above.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          Clearly with their admission they guest blog on another blog, it’s not hard to figure out where they came from.

          I hate when facts get in the way of their lies.

          • julyol1972

            You know what I hate? I hate when stupid people make a concerted effort to make facts a reality, in an effort to cause harm to others.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              If Kjibbers had any sense, all they had to do was go look at the 1st comment timestamps, but that’s too easy. Instead they went off a reposted tweet at 11pm last night. Not very bright of them.

              Ask Doc, I schedule all articles to retweet overnight for the readers and tweeters across the pond.

              • julyol1972

                Have you seen most trolls and/or trouble-makers do their homework, ever? I haven’t!

                • WestCoastFeed

                  At 3:15pm today Kjib posted a question to Fame asking her what time she put up her post. Nice research, KJib.

                  • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                    You mean this comment?

                    So much for having all the evidence they threatened to post and expose me. SMDH

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Yep, that’s the comment I was referring to. Kjib exposed herself.

                    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                      Chile Cheese, it exposed itself when it claimed to guest write on another site. It needs to go have a relaxing cup of tea at the tea house!

                  • julyol1972

                    Stupid is as stupid does! That’s why these trolls always get busted!

              • Dr Seuss

                I can confirm Ed does schedule articles and tweets. It’s standard blog practice. ROL doess it regularly.

                • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

                  Thanks Seuss. You know KJibbers is just someone looking for a fight, unfortunately they can’t back their claims up with proof.

                  That one blogger she speaks of, has already been caught taking an article from this site, if I need to break out the e-mail apology from them I will.

                  Someone has way too much time on their hands.

              • WestCoastFeed

                Hmm, I just took a look at the other site’s commenting guidelines. They have been updated and no longer include “going off topic” or “calling out posters for assumed name changes.” Very interesting.

                • Marsbars09

                  Could they be loosening their reins because of folks bailing from their site?

                  • WestCoastFeed

                    Okay, here’s my paranoia kicking in. Had those now deleted rules been added in because the moderator wanted to catch us violating something so she could get rid of us? Were they created just because she had it in for us?

                    • Marsbars09

                      Why would they target certain posters? The site doesn’t exist without any public interest.

      can i post pictures? i can screen shot the email i received of the scoop sent to ME! from listing agent then i tweeted the scoop that jac’s home was 4 sale. then later i sent it to ed then @PinkwvPink asked questions on twitter about gorga’s home…. i involved ed n asked ed to answer as i am in bed very ill n on drugs n to lazy to research it.

      Ed wrote 2 blogs and they r all his work from his research. all i did was point ED in the right direction. but its clear as day the scoop was generated from the email i received at 8:36 am. and ED came involved from twitter exchanges – look 4 urself on my twitter acct.

      as for Fame…. she did her own work from where ever she obtained her lead. usually i tweet the scoop, some1 emails Fame the lead, Fame generates a blog and every1 thinks Fame was the 1st to scoop the gossip. that is my opinion. i love fames work n blogs but her posters r cruel n accuse every1 of stealing without THEM the posters’ doing any research on my twitter acct to see if i tweeted it first. or in this case ED and mines twitter exchange that led to his blog post BEFORE FAME POSTED HER BLOG

      i have a perfect working relationship with Fame and she does not think i steal from her EVER! WE email each other privately

      i am ill in bed plz forgive the grammar n typos

    • Dr Seuss

      The only person “caught” a lie here is you. You posted the following comment on FameWhorgas today at 3:15 pm, begging for confirmation they had published the story before Ed did. I would think you would have done your research prior to accusing Ed of plagiarism. FameWhorgas’s dissimive response to you, proves you have no clue what you’re talking about.

              That is awful!!!!! I would be sooooooo mad!!! Is there anything you can do????

              • WestCoastFeed

                Nope. Fame herself started out by mostly copying and pasting other people’s words. But at least she gave credit. I used to just refer to her site as the “copy and paste” blog.

            • Dr Seuss

              That happens to me often by RT writers. They stole my “cigs & wigs” and a bunch of other stuff I wrote in comments. Just outright steal my words with not and ounce of credit given.

              • Marsbars09

                Hi Doc. Do you know whatever happened to a poster named “Megan”?

                • Dr Seuss

                  That’s the poster most ex-RT posters were ban for.Some posters politely asked her to provide proof and they were warned not to respond to her while she was allowed to reply to whomever she wanted to. I was banned when she changed her name to something else and I replied to her “hi Megs.” The Megs account was disabled after RT banned a “certain” group of regular posters. It’s almost as if she was a pawn placed their to antagonize “certain” posters and once they were banned, Megan aka Megs disappeared. Ironic isn’t it?

                  • Marsbars09

                    I didn’t know you were banned from RT. I thought you left on your own accord (?).
                    I got in trouble because of Megan and the moderator sent me a “warning” e-mail. I thought it was peculiar that RT would allow a “trouble maker” to stay on the site without repercussions. Again, why would RT set up their own die-hard dedicated poster?
                    You’re right, I haven’t heard from Megan for a long time. Now RT has set up another “baiter” to get posters in trouble.
                    I don’t know what the deal is with RT.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      My guess is that they resented both lolag and me because we knew more about RHONJ than they did. I know I annoyed them by calling them out when they included misinformation in their blogs. I know they’re not journalists, just bloggers, but when I felt the snark was unfair I would say so.

                    • Marsbars09

                      I see. I guess they felt you were “showing them up” when you actually investigated what they posted. I guess you’re reporting skills were better than theirs (?).

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Yes! And they hated you both for it. Do you recall the time both “of them” were extremely nasty with you and Franks. They told you all to leave if you didn’t like it or something like that. I was totally disgusted.

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Yes, and franks rarely posts now. I miss her, too.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      I dm her on Twitter a lot and keep her in the loop ;-)

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Good, I’m glad to hear that. Her wedding plans must be keeping her very busy.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      yeah but hopefully she joins us soon.

                    • Dr Seuss

                      I did leave on my accord. They banned me for 3 days before Thanksgiving then reinstated me. If you recall the poster “AriesWriter” was telling posters to email her to get the scoop as if she knew what happened. After they reinstated me, I would post very little. Then they banned my buddies and I was done with them. Now that’s the real deal :-)

                    • Marsbars09

                      If there’s one thing I admire about you is your integrity and loyalty towards your fellow posters. I’m so glad I met you. :)

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Awww…….thanks sweetheart! Ditto!! :-)

                    • Dr Seuss

                      The mod is not stable…it’s sad.

              • WestCoastFeed

                RT stole my “Donald Trump is a national embarrassment.”

                • Dr Seuss

                  They would steal Lolag1 exclusives and then all the comments that ensued from the thread. One day I called them on it and they were not happy. LOL!!!

                  • twifan2

                    You little instagater you, Dr Seuss! :D

                    • Dr Seuss

                      No instigator here. I’m just telling the truth. Anyone that use to post back then would know exactly what I’m commenting about. It’s the truth ;-P

                    • twifan2

                      Instigate the truth! :)
                      As if The Site That Must Not Be Named would know the ‘truth’.! smh

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Oh LOL! Yes yes…I am “proponent” for the truth!

    • noarguingwithstupid

      Thanks West! We’ll be waiting!!!!

    • Marsbars09

      WCF, do you know whatever became of a poster named “Megan”?

      • WestCoastFeed

        No, maybe RT banned her, too.

        • Marsbars09

          They seemed to like her as she was baiting posters to get into arguments.

      • twifan2

        WHAT! Meggers gone?! :'(
        Aww Meggers, you shall be missed by all 50-75 of us between NAWS & mine in our heads! ;D

        • Marsbars09

          LOL! I just chatted with Doc and she thinks that “Megan” was set up by RT to get rid of certain posters.

          • twifan2

            No doubt that PPP was their pawn.

            • Marsbars09

              I’m sorry, who’s PPP?

              • twifan2

                Meggers

                • Marsbars09

                  Hi many aliases did this person have?

                  • twifan2

                    ???

                    • WestCoastFeed

                      Megan’s aliases were RHONJ 5. Megan, Megan Iglesias, among others. The last one she used was GirlyLove, or something similar. It didn’t really matter what handle she used, she was so easy to identify.

                    • twifan2

                      The ‘hieroglyphics’ were a give away a lot of times. :)

                    • Dr Seuss

                      Hahahaha!!!!

                    • Marsbars09

                      I’m sorry. I meant to ask how many different names does this poster post under.

                    • twifan2

                      I don’t think she eve remembered how many different names she had.

                    • Marsbars09

                      That bitch was crazy, wasn’t she?

                    • twifan2

                      What can I say… :/

  • MissAmia

    Hello Everyone!
    My name is Amia. I am a friend of Ed’s on twitter. At least I think.. Ed? ;-) LOL!!!
    First, Ed is happy to have you all here. I can promise you that if you are a commenting here for over 2 years as some as you were at Reality Tea, Ed won’t drop you like a bad habit like Reality Tea does. Matter in fact.. I want you to know Ed is a GREAT person and it really pisses me off that someone would accuse him of something so F’ing childish.
    Ed is one of the few bloggers that does not take this blogging thing as a fucking competition! Ed has in the past offered to help other bloggers when they had maintenance issues, even offered me to use his software for my site that shoulda (that is slang for the grammar cops) been up and running by now. I can go on and on what a good person he is but I don’t need to.
    Now, this fuckery about “Stealing a post” is F’ing absurd. To make matters worse, for that twat to bring Fame in this is wrong. Ed and Fame are on friendly terms. They may like different people on these shows, but they both credit and link back. Believe me, if Fame thought Ed copied her post (I can’t believe I am actually writing this *shakes head*) she would say something to him. She has a voice of her own and has commented about sites .. *ahem.. Reality Tea..* Copying and not crediting..
    I want to thank everyone for not believing this asshole who is trying to start trouble.. Again.

    If you guys only knew about a “devil” (yes Ed, pun intended!) who happens to be a former employee of Ed’s and what he the former employee is doing now… OMG! I am biting my tongue.. This is not going to make sense to some and I am sorry for that. Let me just say that he likes to copy shit and reword it. Let’s say if… Oh I don’t know, BBC had an article out. If the post said; “Mr. Smith tells BBC” this asshole will put “Mr. Smith tells Our Copy and Past site” and still copy the F’ing thing and claim it as theirs.
    I always told Ed, count your blessings. That will Catch up to them eventually and I hate to be on their end of a lawsuit. Besides, can you imagine having a talk with a grown man who is your employee explaining why you can’t just copy another sites article word for word and put your name on it.?!
    I am done. Thanks for visiting Ed here, you are appreciated and not a number, I guarantee you that.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      Thanks for the kind words Amia. You have been a supporter of TVFB from day one and a long time Twitter friend who has been around to witness the bullshit attacks.

      This is just another it what has been a long line, and I’m sure there are more to come. In the end none of them can prove their statements with facts.

      • MissAmia

        Ed , the shit is just so childish. Are you kidding me? This person is going by F’ing times ? What a whack job.
        Then TT

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          I should have listened way back when!

      • murlut

        I love this site, Stoopid Housewives let some out and out attack those who are not Teresa fans. I was booted from there and I am sure since I don’t like Joyce, my days are numbered at RT cause I speak my mind.

        • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

          Welcome here, I’m not Joyce fan either.

          • murlut

            YEAH.. Well Ed, we are in the minority.

            • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

              We’ll just have to band together and kick some arse!

    • Dr Seuss

      This is so true. Ed is an amazing guy. I’ve known him years and no matter what he was going through he was always there for me.

      • Marsbars09

        That’s so nice to know.

        • Dr Seuss

          Thank you Mars! :)

  • Dr Seuss

    To the person flagging all my comments–> From my ass to your lips…smooches! xo

  • WestCoastFeed

    SH has just posted the Zillow site which says this listing has been removed.

    • http://TVFishbowl.com/ Ed B.

      Interesting, the listing broker still has it on their website as available. I wonder if the Lauritas requested the listing be removed for 3rd party sites like Zillow.
