'RHONJ' news: Rosie Pierri's girlfriend says it was all faked for the show

Rosie Pierri looked really happy with her girlfriend on a recent episode of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey." Since then, Rosie has shared that they have split, but new reports make it sound like that is not the truth. On Friday, Radar Online shared that it is being reported that it was all faked for television.

Ellen Minkin spoke out to Radar herself and says that when she met Rosie she feels like she needed a story line on the show. After being on "The Millionaire Matchmaker" and not finding love, everyone was hoping that Rosie would find her girl somehow. Ellen did say that they did date for a bit, but it wasn't the way that Bravo made it look on the show. Rosie even told her that she needed a girlfriend for a story line.

Ellen shared that Bravo even asked if another girl could do it if she wouldn't work. It was obvious that they wanted her to have someone on the show. Ellen even said that Rosie told her she didn't care about her if she didn't do it. Ellen is obviously upset and felt like most of the relationship was just for television.

From what Ellen says, it was not all staged and they did date briefly but it wasn't all that the show made it look like in this recent episode. She hoped that Bravo would edit her out of the show but they refused. That could be part of why she is speaking out now.

Rosie has been all over Twitter, but she isn't saying anything about it at all. Don't miss new episodes of "The Real Housewives of New Jersey" on Monday nights on Bravo. It will be interesting to see if they air anymore about Rosie's love life this season.
