Quotable Quotes:

“Are you going to cook for your husband when you get married? (Teresa asks Milania as they’re stirring a pot on the stove.)  “No, he’s gonna cook for me.” (Milania’s response = Priceless.)

“Congratulations, Stupid.” – Gino (Melissa had encouraged Gino to say, “Congratulations, Daddy” after they drove by Joey’s billboard for the very first time… and instead, this is what came out of his mouth.  While this made me laugh hysterically, if I had ever said that to one of my parents I would be D.E.A.D.)  Then, as if to explain himself, Gino emphatically says, “It’s just a billboard!”  Indeed, Gino, indeed.

Kathy Wakile – She just got back from a “fantastic trip to Italy.”  She has a photo journal on instagram @officialkathywakile if you’re interested.

“It put a smile on my face to see Teresa, Melissa, Joe, and Joe and all the kids together. Go forward; it’s about building a whole bunch of new happy memories. It totally reminded me of when we all as cousins used to play and hang out, and we shared a lot of first things together. Those childhood memories keep us bonded together, no matter what! So it was nice to see that the younger generations are the same and still have that natural unconditional love and affection! So, so happy for all of them!”

It was great to see all the kids reunited.  However, I really couldn’t care less about the adults since they’re the ones who put their familial relationships on the line for 15 minutes of fame and a little cash.  I love how the kids react to each other and love each other – but unfortunately, “unconditional love” has NOT been modeled to them by their parents since they’ve not spoken to each other nor have then seen one another for well over a year.  Instead, I’m afraid the kids have learned that it’s okay to discard significant relationships over stupid misunderstandings.  They’ve learned that stubbornness is valued over talking out tough misunderstandings and/or miscommunications.  Hopefully, in light of recent events, the adults will behave less like children and will actually “be there” for each other in tangible, meaningful ways.

“Caroline sharing her conversations with her kids about life and getting older is one that is hard to have. There always comes a time in your life where you finally realize your kids are adults and no longer children, but in some ways they will always be your babies. So it’s a bittersweet moment when you have to make the leap to discuss those things. I especially relate, since I know I’m not far behind. When it comes our kids, I think that we are very similar. Caroline is very direct and has no problem communicating head on with anyone.”

It’s pretty easy to communicate with your husband when you only see him once a week for the last 20 years, no?  So, help me understand again why anyone is listening to Caroline’s advice on anything? Her marital advice is not anything I would want to listen to since she has no idea what she’s talking about because she’s barely seen her husband for 20 years.  Why on earth would I want to pattern my marriage after theirs?  Any advice she’d have on raising kids I’d also question based on how her 3 kids have turned out… not that it’s all her fault, but come on… I’m hard pressed to find any success stories between the three of them.  It’s really too bad, too – because it seems like they were set up to succeed – but they just haven’t.  Relationship advice from Carolyn would also be tough to listen to since she’s so blinded by her own biases she couldn’t see the truth if it hit her over the head.

Kathy goes on to talk about the clubbing adventure with Rosie. I dunno, there’s nothing that says, “I’m available and I’m a person you should want to get to know” like going to a club with your overprotective sister and her creepy husband, no?  Rosie, I know you were feeling weird and all… and this whole outing was just for filming purposes and stuff… but Rosie, alcohol is NOT your friend! Also, you need to stop hanging out with the guys because they’re not doing you any favors.  It seems like it’s hard for you to even keep up a normal conversation with someone.  I attribute it to the fact that you lose a significant number of brain cells for every minute you spend with Ritchie and Joey.

Kathy goes on to talk about how she’s protective about who Rosie dates.  Kathy says, “…If I’m being honest here, I will always step in if I see someone trying to take advantage of my little sister. Rosie is my first best friend in life and that will never change.”

Sorry, Kathy but I think Rosie is right on this one… You can absolutely voice your opinion about someone she’s dating… but then just you just have to “zip it.”  Rosie could totally go off on you about that gem of a man, Ritchie… but she smartly keeps her mouth closed.

Caroline Manzo – Caroline blogs, “I’m glad that Jacqueline accepted Teresa’s invitation to meet and discuss open ended issues between the two of them. I don’t care how many times I’ve heard that it was over and put in the past from each of them, I never believed a word they said. Now, some may wonder why I would ask for such a meeting when the animosity between the two is at a level 10. That’s exactly why! Look and listen and watch as they speak about one and other — it’s hurt masked in anger and resentment. The level 10 is based on hurt, not anger. I believe they both needed to have an honest conversation, and if nothing else, get true closure. I didn’t think they would come out of the meeting as best friends, but I would like to think that they could come to terms with their feelings and at least be civil towards one and other, nothing more. Mission accomplished… I think.

Oh Caroline, it’s because you’re a “Level 10” manipulative control freak that you goaded Teresa into extending the invitation to the friendship summit.  Jac had no intention of wanting to make up with Teresa… and Teresa had no inclination to make up with Jac.  The viewers had no interest in seeing any of it, either.  We all lose in this scenario.  Thanks a lot, Caroline.

“Albie makes me so sad sometimes. I hated to hear him say he wasn’t ready to be happy.”

I totally didn’t understand Albie’s statement at all.  Perhaps someone can enlighten me.  I understand that when you’re walking through life’s dark hours… perhaps as a result of fresh grief, pain, hardship, heartbreak, etc. – that one would possibly say that they’re not “ready to be happy yet” – but it’s because they’re aware they’re in the middle of a life altering process of some kind.  But what 20 or 30 something person says that they’re not ready to be happy?  I think I was born ready to be happy… that doesn’t mean I always AM happy… but come the heck on… Poor, poor Albie… Did his comment bother any of you?

Caroline goes on to say how she and Al instilled a strong work ethic in their kids.  That’s funny, because I just don’t see it.  Not from any of them.  Now it’s true, I’m basing my perception on only what is shown to the viewers… but really, come on, folks… get a grip on it.  Caroline says, “However, a balance of work and play is very important for the mind. Albie is incapable of creating the balance. My husband Albert is the same way and he can’t see my point, therefore, we do disagree from time to time when it comes to the kids.”  It seems like Albie needs a good dose of one of my mantras, “Life is what thou makest it… so makest it fun!”  Then Caroline seemingly addresses the viewers by saying, “Do me a favor, relax and don’t read too much into his attitude at the dinner table.” Caroline, I’m quite relaxed, thank you very much.  It’s your son who’s a nervous wreck and who’s wound tighter than a drum.

Caroline then tells us that she and Albert have been together for over 32 years and they’ve had their share of ups and downs.  Thanks, Caroline, I’ll alert the media!   She blogs on to say, “There is no divorce hiding in the shadows or discontent with each other.”  While it’s true that what works for one couple doesn’t necessarily work for another… but really, how contented can one be in a marriage when you see each other only once a week? That was such a startling nugget of information to me and by the way, one in which no one has disputed its validity.  Where I live, a 45 minute commute is considered an easy commute and thousands do it and more every single day. And if the commute was an issue, move closer to work, for goodness’ sake. Unless of course, you don’t WANT to see your family more often than that… you WANT to live a double life doodling anyone you want/whenever you want… etc., etc.  I now know why the clown wears a frown… that’s a crazy level of rejection to have to carry with you every single day of your life.

“I’ve told Albie more times than I can count that God forbid his father predeceases me, there’s nothing he or anyone else can do for me. Al and I have always lived within our means, saved, and invested carefully. We have life insurance policies in place for each of us and a home that is nearly paid for. The bottom line is this — I will be a very wealthy woman with a shattered heart. Money can’t fix that. Having my children around me healthy and happy is what I will need then. Everything else has been carefully thought out and prepared for.”

Okay, I’m kinda afraid that if Caroline sees an episode of “Snapped” that we might have a murder to investigate or something… allegedly…

Melissa Gorga – She starts out her blog by telling us how much fun their family has had over the summer, that the boardwalk is open and that the Jersey shore is back in business.  She encourages everyone to visit and support the local businesses.  She wants us to tweet her pics if we go… lol… Go ahead, I dare you to tweet her pics of your visit…

Melissa blogs, “How amazing is it to see our whole family together? The kids running up to each other puts a huge smile on my face. It’s such a beautiful thing to be able to have Sunday dinners together and really enjoy one another’s company. Antonia and Milania are priceless together! That’s all I ever wanted; just to see the kids happy and see Joe and Teresa happy and be able to have all our children at one dinner table.”

Are you seriously trying to tell us that your goal was to “see the kids happy and see Joe and Teresa happy??”… Well, either you suck at it or you have a funny way of showing it.  Instead, it seems like you have worked tirelessly against those goals for the last couple of years – based on what we’ve seen onscreen.

“The Sizzle Tan photo shoot was hysterical! Joe is such a HAM! He loves himself, LOL… I can’t take him with the pecs and the pushups! How about that hottie he was with? OMG if that was me, I would never hear the end of it. And to top it all off, he stole my line and said it wrong! The correct saying is, “Why are you gonna go out for a burger when you have filet mignon at home?” Where the hell did he get hot dog from?!”

Yeah, I didn’t get the whole “hot dog” comment either… I just chalked it up to his weird preoccupation with wieners in general. Personally, I think he’s full of B-O-L-O-G-N-A.

In talking about Teresa and Jac, Melissa says, “I don’t want to get involved in their relationship, but I will say that the reason Teresa and Joe didn’t speak for over a year had nothing to do with Jacqueline. It was so beyond that.”

Well, even though we all know that part is true, you guys sure used that specific incident over and over again as the reason you all stopped speaking to each other.  Umm, hello… You were speaking to Teresa before and during that stupid Posche fasion show night… then after the night’s activities you were no longer were speaking to her – and didn’t for over a year. Do we look stupid?   

Melissa then talks about going out with Rosie to the bar to pick up girls – and that she thought it was hysterical watching her talk to Ellen.  I thought it was rather painful to watch her talk to Ellen. Ellen had zero interest in Rosie from what I could see but seemed to be going along with things just because there were cameras present.  Melissa says, “Rosie makes for some great TV.”  While I think that’s basically true, it just was a sad scene to me.

Melissa actually has the nerve to say – and this is AFTER she watched the episode itself, “How did you like my rapping skills?! Ha! You didn’t know I had that in me, did you?”  Umm, no, we didn’t know you had it in you to do that.  I actually physically recoil whenever people who have no business rapping decide to bust one out… They are all cringeworthy moments, really.

Melissa finally makes reference to her own photo shoot and explains, “The fan just makes everything better. I swear!” Well, since you’ve told us previously that you never sweat – I’m deducing your obsession with having “more fan” was solely because you knew that fan used during the photo shoot was actually the only real “fan” you’ll ever have.

Teresa Giudice – For the first time in a long time, Teresa doesn’t start her blog by calling us, “lovies” but instead says, “Thank you all so much for your support this week. I appreciate it more than you will ever know.”

Teresa blogs, “I loved seeing my girls get to play with their cousins this episode. I love them all so much! Can you imagine me and Joey and Rosie and Kathy running around like that when we were kids? We did! Cousins are your first friends, and I think it’s important to get them together so they can grow up together. I really am trying to let things roll off my back. I just want my family together and at peace, no matter what. Insult me, make fun of me, do what you will. I’ll keep being a “good little girl.”

You forgot to say that you’re being a “good little martyr” because of course, you’re perfect in every way.

Teresa continues, “Milania just cracks me up. I never know what’s going to come out of her mouth. She says the funniest things. You know how some kids act up in front of company, and some kids get shy? Milania is always just Milania. She makes me smile. Everyone has been asking me about her health since it was reported I took her to the hospital this week. I didn’t, it was the doctor’s office. She wasn’t feeling well, and paparazzi were shooting us coming out of the building. Thankfully, they were very nice. The guy kept saying “I love you Teresa, my family love you.” He apologized, and even asked me to take a picture with him. Then a picture of poor Milania and me shows up on TMZ with a nasty headline. Ah marone! Thankfully, Milania is all better now. Thank you all for your prayers and well-wishes.”

Well, Teresa, you and your husband’s actions have given enough ammo to the tabloids for quite a while… Hopefully, ugly headlines and unflattering pictures are all that Milania will have to deal with… but I fear it will be much, much worse…

Teresa says, “The sit-down with Jacqueline was intense. I was deeply hurt because we had been so close for so many years. I never expected her to turn on me like she did. I certainly never got any packet of information about Danielle’s past, but if I did, I wouldn’t have read it. I really don’t care about people’s pasts, and I don’t have time to go digging. I’m raising 4 kids and working! I’m not the gravedigger in the bunch, believe me!”

Well, Teresa, sad as it is, you and your husband just dug your own graves, no? And your children are going to be the ones who really suffer for it.  And all of it was just to be able to live a life well beyond your means.  Wow.

Teresa reminds us, “Yes, five years ago, I flipped one table — the first and last I’ve ever flipped in anger. I’m a passionate person, but I have grown. I watched the scene on TV and I didn’t like what I saw. I don’t want my kids to see that, and I would never do that again. I’ve never physically attacked anyone, and you certainly haven’t seen me do that this season! I’ve learned from my mistakes.”

If only table flipping was your worst vice.  You have continued to scream at people until you were red in the face… is that something you want your kids to emulate?  I’m confident there are several people working in the prosecutor’s office who will ensure that you continue to, “learn from your mistakes.”  I hear orange is the new black.

Teresa then tells us how she doesn’t have any issues with Danielle anymore – and that she’s apologized to her and they’ve moved on.  She compliments Danielle on how great her kids have turned out – and that Danielle “must be doing something right to have such great kids.” And then because she just can’t help herself, she throws a jab by saying Danielle’s kids are, “(Kids that aren’t making fools of themselves on Twitter…)”  Gee, I wonder who she’s referring to? Lol… She then warns us… err… tells us that we need to stay tuned to see how things play out between she and Jac.  Sighs… I don’t care.  Really, I don’t…

Jacqueline Laurita – She starts out her blog by saying, “I will not be publicly discussing anything relating to the recent news regarding Teresa and her family. I reached out to Teresa directly. I am strictly discussing the episode and how I felt at the time.”

I’m shocked, shocked I tell you! Lol.  Of course neither you nor anyone else can talk about Teresa and Joe’s indictments.  It’s an ongoing investigation… But I’m telling you… If there is any silver lining in all of this… It’s the idea that it’s the absolute juiciest (sorry about the pun) storyline ever BUT Bravo just can’t use it or exploit it… although I’m sure they’re busy trying to figure out how to do so. I’d die laffing if it wasn’t just so danged serious…

Jac continues, “Apparently, what I had suspected about Teresa’s sincerity was right. Teresa didn’t want to be my friend again, she just wanted to keep what she considered her enemy closer. That is the same attitude Teresa had toward me in California when she fake made up with me. I knew Teresa well enough to know that she doesn’t forgive and forget that easily and that she probably wasn’t sincere this time around either.”

Teresa had no intention of making up with you at this point of time.  Her priority was to get things right between her family and her brother’s family.  She should have never bought into Caroline’s manipulative web to force her into trying to make amends with you before she was ready. You are not on Teresa’s radar and you haven’t been for months.  However, that being said – her tune may be changing because she’s going to need all the friends she can get at this point.

I’m including the following paragraph in its entirety because it’s priceless, Jac says, “I was very disappointed in Teresa’s comment that I had 800 pages of Danielle’s court records faxed over to me. Teresa knows VERY well that I didn’t ask for, or seek out Danielle’s court documents. They were actually sent by mail and ADDRESSED TO ALL OF US, from Danielle’s ex-husband after he saw Season 1, to warn us ALL about how dangerous of a person he thought Danielle was. OF COURSE I read them. I’m no fool. It’s good to know the person you are dealing with. I always like to have my facts straight about a person before I say something or make a judgment. Even if I don’t like the person, I would never make up lies about them. That’s just not my style. Most people know that about me.”



Okay, hold for just a moment, please… I have to wipe away the tears of laughter that are streaming from my eyes… Okay, I’m back… Is she trying to be funny or something?  How can she possibly say with a straight face, “I always like to have my facts straight about a person before I say something or make a judgment.” Hardee har har har.  Wow…  Delusional party of one, please!  Jac continues by talking rehashing a whole bunch of stuff back from Teresa’s infamous table flip to past reunions.   Oh, I get it now… that’s why Teresa referred to Danielle and the table flipping in her own blog.  Hmmm…

Jacqueline continues to try to convince us she’s perfect in every way by saying, “Another thing about me is that I don’t like lying for people. I am honest to a fault. If I call out someone, it’s because I feel like I’m being put on the spot and I know they are lying. That’s just who I am. I’m not going to change. Teresa was clearly trying to paint a picture of me that made “me” look like the shady one, when the only shade I saw was coming from her. I get it though, she was mad at me at the time.” 

I love how Jac’s been recently reading the “urban dictionary” so she can use hip terms like “shade” just like the cool kids.  However, I’m not sure she actually knows what it means or how to correctly use the term.

Jac says, “Don’t get me wrong, I can get bitchy when I’m angry, and I do speak my mind. Clearly, I do it publicly. I tweet from my own Twitter. I don’t make up fake accounts or get others to speak or tweet for me. Whatever I have to say comes straight from me and I’ll even say it to them and/or publicly. I’m certainly not sneaky. When people lie to or about me, I get upset and sometimes will snap back by throwing their ugly truths in their face, because I feel the truth always hurts worse than any lie someone can say to try to hurt me. I’m not saying that is right thing to do in a heated situation either, but that’s what I do sometimes. I can be impulsive at times. It’s a defense mechanism.”  



Okay, this explanation is just 50 shades of crazy to me.  What reasonable adult considers their use of Twitter as a means of effective communication with someone? The entire concept of being mad at someone and then causing it to play out publicly on Twitter is just so incredibly stupid to me. Jac needs to be reminded of Abraham Lincoln’s sage advice:  “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”  Seriously.  Jac then blathers on about Teresa having a selective memory.  She then she brings up the reunion shows again and who said what to whom and who drew first blood. Bladdity blah blah blah.  Move on.  Sheesh.  Jac does tell us that next week the peace talk continues.  O joy. O rapture. I can hardly wait, can you?

    Good morning again. Happy Sunday.

  2. Cartwheels says:

    Thanks for the blogs Stars. I can’t always comment but try to read any time I can.

    The joy of watching RHNJ has been taken away from me :(

    I still side with Teresa in her dispute with her brother and SIL, with the Wakiles and pretty much the other cast members but in light of the legal problems that Teresa and Joe are facing, I just can’t support them any longer.

    So here I am, enjoying them in the show (but also looking for all those signs of denial and crookery) and then feeling guilty for supporting two criminals (allegedly) and thinking about those precious girls and what is going to happen to them when their parents go to jail. As much as I like Teresa, if the feds can prove the allegations of the indictment, then I do think that she deserves to go to jail. It saddens me to think that as a nation we have come to value material possessions so much than some are willing to become criminals to get there and that others find that like it is not such a big deal at all.

    With all that, I will never like or support any of Teresa’s cast members but I just can’t turn a blind eye to Teresa and Joe’s criminal behavior.

    • Powell says:

      Hi cartwheels. It is a shame that many of the HWs & their spouses throughout the franchise have done some crazy stuff to live a certain lifestyle. They have taken “keeping up with the Joneses” to a totally new level.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I often wonder how life will be for them after all is set and done. I am used to my middle class life and perfectly content with what I have. I bet they (some celebrities and also just regular people) have a harder time adjusting to their new income reality because they got use to have so much and live for appearances.

        • Birdwoman says:

          There have been several times in my life where I have had to deal with income adjustments. It is painful but if you are introspective at all, you realize that things are not that important in the end.

  3. Powell says:

    Lulu. I hope Mistresses is back. There are too many unanswered questions. I know what happened on the UK version but I won’t spoil it for you. :-)

    Chismosa I missed The Real on Friday. It’s very good. I hope its back next summer. I heard Tamar on the radio Friday and she said they had fun doing it but she didn’t mention it being picked up.

    Cali OMG if its true that Tre & Joe are getting jail time I feel for the kids & Tre’s parents. I just hope that good comes out of the mess and they all change how they run their biz & live their lives. One thing I will say regarding Tre is that she’s been working to pay the debts & if she’s in jail she won’t be able to do most of what she’s doing to earn money. But what ever happens is what will happen.

    • chismosa says:

      I feel bad for Tre’s parents if Tre was completely not involved and because of their health.
      They warned her years ago to not get involved with Juichead.

      What kind of person does juicy think he is to get away with this stuff? That, along with the way I’ve seen his mom and at times dad, act on camera – both at bravo and at the courthouse- make me think he grew up thinking he could get away with this sort of $hit. Did any of Joe’s brothers or sisters do weird illegal stuff like this?

      I know Tre’s parents can do no wrong. But they are the “Gorgas” when we talk about the “Gorga switch” and if they are left to take care of the girls …..
      Well, can they? With Mr Gorga being elderly and quite ill at times?

      I guess it’s up to Juicy’s siblings then since god forbid Devil gets them. The monsters they’d become !! (Not Milania of course 👼👼)

    • chismosa says:

      Sorry Powell meant to say also– I read that ratings for the Real far surpassed expectations and that they did MUCH better than the crapfest summer 2013 that is Kris Jenner’s show.
      So I feel it may come back. The Asian girl and Adrienne Bailon annoy me. I don’t mind the others. The Mowry girl seems to stare daggers at Adrienne. That intrigues me…..

    • california35 says:

      I am no fan of hers, (or NJ’s real-housewives group). i am not watching. Basically, i am not even thinking if she is guilty or if husband is. It still made me feel for them and their family. When all came out about the spending and fraud and whatever, i did think these people need to stop pretending, etc. seeing that Theresa has been working and is so busy made me think she really is trying. I figured she is Trying to fix things in a way.

      Any ways, it was sad to hear it may actually happen… Them BOTH going to jail is what surprised me the most. All along i thought maybe joe would or should, but i didn’t think SHE would too. Then what support does she have With the family and friends problems, i don’t see it. even though all is her doing, she didnt make good relationships either…so what will be of her daughters? grandparents?

      • Birdwoman says:

        I am not making excuses for Tre and Joe’s behavior, but I have a feeling this was some sort of racket that many people used to work the system and make more money. It is sad that they had to live this completely over the top lifestyle instead of a nice comfortable upper middle class lifestyle.
        I never could figure out how any of them could afford this lifestyle. I know Jersey has more taxes than I do in CA. The contractors, real estate agents, small business owners that I know live comfortable lives. But none of them are driving Ferraris, Bentleys, living in 15,000 square foot homes. Most of them live in 3000-4000 square foot homes and drive nice cars. The only people I know that even that live like that are top level executives in multi-national companies or maybe some lawyers.

      Just one item they aren’t paying their debts from what I have read.

    Thanks for blogging Stars and entering that site that I just can’t —- bravo needs to revamp their site STAT!

    I liked this gem from Tre : I really don’t care about people’s pasts, and I don’t have time to go digging. I’m raising 4 kids and working! I’m not the gravedigger in the bunch, believe me!”
    That accounts for her stalking Danielle like prey at the Brownstone that year. Ok.
    And she forgot pushing Andy.
    No wait I forgot that drag out fight /hair pulling was Melissa’s fault. 🆗

    Heather and her must have discarded those index cards

    🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸🔸
    Have a nice Sunday everyone – good weather here. Just so happy we’re not in the 90s like a typical August.

  5. NMD,
    Thanks for blogging the blogs! I love a good re-cap! I am still confused though cause I thought at the end of the season when Kim D kinda sorta maybe egmitted that it was a set up at the Posche fashion show and that Tre was in on it/aware it was gonna go down. Is my memory fooling me here? I agree that Jac stuck her nose in where it didn’t belong, but since it was a set-up and Tre knew it was coming then Jac’s actions weren’t nearly as bad as Tre’s at the time, right?
    I am speaking as a person who may or may not have a sister in law who was possibly a waitress/dancer (cough cough) back in the day. She was a single mom supporting herself and a child (doesn’t matter why, but everyone has to make money for food). I have never not once ever spoken to her or my brother about this issue because it was NONE of my business. I still think it is funny how Chris L. pointed out at the reunion that they were talking about strippers like they were criminals…it’s a job! Some may think it is not a respectable job, but since I don’t walk in that girl’s shoes (platform or other) I will not judge.
    On a side note, I was disappointed by the RHOC this year…BORING snooze fest! Not sure how they can make the reunion a three-parter since I can only imagine what will be re-hashed again. I am anxious to hear how Brianna will defend her beau!

    • Cartwheels says:

      Kim D. has said several times that Teresa was not on the set up at all. That was the production team, the Karagiorgis and Kim D. who set up Melissa. If you believe in other theories, then the one who was set up was Teresa because they brought Angelo earlier that day just to make it look like Teresa was part of it when it was obvious that she didn’t want anything to do with him. I do think that Melissa’s past in nobody’s business and if Joey took her then it is all forgiven, but Melissa instead of accepting and moving on (ala Nene) has made a point to make it look almost like she was an innocent bystander in a gentleman’s club who worked there for one night but then produces paystubs for months.
      Melissa has dug her own grave, the underhanded way she came into the show has been the example that all these other low lives want to follow (Angelo, Karagiorgis, Bryan, etc) , they all saw how Melissa made it to the show and decided that if the way to get in is via an expose then they are all up for it.

      The best defense that Brianna can do for her hubby is to just apologize and say that he was having a moment and that he deeply regrets it, not one more word.

      At the reunion Kim said Tre had nothing to do w/it at all. Tre said she felt something was happening because of that bald guy at the fashion show but she didn’t know what was going to happen. Yes Jac opened up her yap where it didn’t belong and had Caro, Lauren and then Mel & Joey thinking Tre was involved w/& knew the setup was going down. That’s one thing I don’t get about Mel & Joey. They knew Caro & Jac for 5 minutes & believed what they said about Tre’s involvement. That’s effed up.

    • chismosa says:

      Hi TSOULWA- I think it’s ALL a mass production mess:
      – the set up last year leading to >>>>Jacq seeming to blame on Tre>>>> leading to Joe and Mel believing her>>> Joe and Mel not talking to Tre>>> Tre being blind sighted somehow with this

      However I think there are deep seated issues of Joey and Tre there to begin with ….

      Caroline having nothing TO DO on this show>>>> being “called” by Tre to lake George >>> producers tell her she has to make Jacq and Tre get on camera together or else it’s kaputs for screen time for your babies and 12 visits a year husband

      Blech
      Just give an ankle bracelet home arrest show to Tre and kill the rest of the Jersey show 👽👽👽💀💀💀

      • TexasTart says:

        Maybe you are being sarcastic and there are boxes…but that last sentence is BRILLIANT! :-D

        • chismosa says:

          Sorry Texas— the boxes were just little alien heads and yes, I think she should have her own reality show – I said this before the 39 came down on her! And I hate her ….

          Lol!

          • TexasTart says:

            I still love that last line and just now rememered to check for a reply! See, I like that about you, Chismosa, even though you don’t like Teresa you recognize her success and that she could very likely draw an audience – even house bound with and ankle monitor! Sorry to miss seeing alien heads, lol, even funnier that I know what they are! :-D

  6. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone. Thank you Stars for the recap. Caroline is a miserable woman. Albie is depressed. I agree with Stars that 45 minutes is not a long commute. If someone wanted to be with their family they would make the effort. Al does not want to make the effort.

    Jac is crazy. Mel is a liar…that is all

    I went out to get the Sunday paper and you would not believe who was in the front section of the Arizona Republic. Jill Zarin! Article was about Ginger and having the vet fly with her to treat Ginger. Slow news day in Az. Really…..

    • Powell says:

      Hey AZGirl. Slow newsday at the AZ Republic alright. They better do better or Bezos just might shake his bank acct again and buy them. LOL.

  7. Sasha says:

    No your memory is not failing you. Teresa knew something was going down and was practically dragging Melissa to go and confront him. I just don’t see how that is Jac’s fault.

    • chismosa says:

      Yes Sasha — but Tre was not coached properly at the time on how to say her lines on how to get Mel to see what Tre’s brain was thinking. IOW— her dialect/translation coach wasnt with her

      So……. Bravo production loved that ….>>> drama ensued
      That was Tre 2.0. This season we’re at 3.0.

    • Powell says:

      It’s Jac’s fault cause she had them all believing Tre put it in motion. At the fashion show is when Tre thought something was happening & yes she told Mel to confront the guy. Jac have never said who her imaginary friend is that she supposedly got the info from that Tre was setting Mel up. It’s funny Jac tells everything else, doesn’t hold back and tells A to Z but this time she’s going to keep this to herself.

    • Rebecca says:

      Sasha,

      They said at the reunion they ALL knew “something” was going down. At the pseudo-therapy session, Joey demanded that Teresa come to them when she heard gossip about Melissa. That’s exactly what she did that night. Damned if she does, damned if she doesn’t.

      Jacqueline was told by Cat the producer -who says all over her twitter how much she loves Melissa- that Melissa was setup by Teresa instead of Kim D. Kim D. says a hundred times now that it was all on her. Wacky Jacky should have gone to her FRIEND when she heard some gossip about Teresa. The hypocrisy “knows no bounds.”

      • Sasha says:

        Rebecca, that’s my point that they all knew something was going down because that’s what happens at a Posche Fashion Show.

        Teresa has no problem with Kim D having her grubby hands all over the situation. They are still best girls.

        If she was so concerned about informing them about Melissa gossip, then it could happened the minute she left her makeup session with Kim D. Instead she needed her season ending moment for the finale that did not go so well.

        • Rebecca says:

          Jacqueline helped Monica Chacon gather info on Teresa, yet Joey and Melissa and Kathy still hang out with her.

          • Sasha says:

            That’s nice that Jacqueline can still hang with the Gorga’s despite Monica.

            My point was that If I were Teresa I would be a little angry at Kim D for bringing us face to face for him to spout off his information. Maybe she was angry and got over it because she holds no grudges.

            • Rebecca says:

              If Teresa couldn’t hang out with anyone who hated her sil, there would be no one to be friends with in New Jersey.

              • Sasha says:

                I’m not talking about her not hanging out with people who don’t like Melissa. Apparently that is a bunch and them some.

                She is not mad at Kim D because she was in on part of the plan.

              • melthehound says:

                Heheheeee :lol:

      • VV says:

        Good point because the Gorga serán to be playa eith Kim D. Joey apologized to her and they are in talking terms. Go back to Melissa’s TL ans you will read some nice things that Melussa has to day about her. Weird. Melissa and her hubby are scum. Anybody can go to the Famewhorgas website and read. Even if 10% of it it’s true. It’s despicable the problem is that website is very well researched, documented and informed. Those who want to see it will those blinded by hate will not.

      • Powell says:

        They knew something was going down at the fashion show, but Tre wasn’t in on the “goings down”. Remember she also said she didn’t feel good about the situation at the hair salon that she didn’t really go to or something to that affect. It really boils down to Kim, bald guy & I don’t know who else set out to hurt/embarrass Mel at Kim’s fashion show. Kim put it in motion. I don’t know if today Joey & Mel finally understand that it was Kim. But they cant blame Tre for that. Just like they can’t blame Tre for Mel’s supposed best friend talking smack about Mel.

    This is going to be a tough one for me, I’m scared 🙈🙈🙈🙈

    Ok have a good day y’all catch you on the flippy 👀

  9. Birdwoman says:

    Wasn’t it last season that Caroline said that the boys didn’t have time to ‘date’ anyone? Now, she wants them to date?

    My feeling is that Albie is starting to realize that his parents marriage is strange. Just think, his aunt is divorcing his uncle probably because of that issue. He is also realizing that modern women are not going to put up with that crap unless he is bringing home big money and even then probably not.

    Jacq, is all kinds of delusional. That recap of her blog was spot on and funny! :)

  10. Powell says:

    HA. Mel has said she doesn’t sweat? Then that’s the problem right there. If you don’t sweat then there is something medically wrong w/you. Well that clears that up for me cause I thought there was something wrong w/that chick.

    • Amalfi says:

      You are healthier if you sweat a lot, though not always pleasant to be around. There are lots of people who do not sweat much, though. Her use of never (if she used it) was probably an ill-used superlative.

    • Amalfi says:

      Beyond that, Powell, there is something wrong with Melissa and it probably starts with her gigantic head. And I am not talking literally… although….

  11. Rebecca says:

    Jacqueline when over the top crazy last year trying to get Teresa to talk about her finances last season. How many times did she try to say Teresa was getting paid every time a rag made up a story about her?

    Kim G. says she and Jacqueline talk for an hour every day.

    Kim G’s friend Monica Chacon is bragging how she’s been helping the feds for years try to take down Teresa and Joe.

    Conclusion = Jacqueline is a reprehensible, unforgivable, evil bitch who is going to get all that is coming to her and more. She is lower than pond scum. Helping these harpies in the face of the $55 million is fraud charges her family is being investigated for is karma waiting to happen. I will not feel sorry for her boys when she goes to the slammer. They will be MUCH better off without her.

    • Rebecca says:

      Jacqueline “was” over the top….. stupid autocorrect

    • mrs peabody says:

      Wacky and Monica were in it together trying to help the feds get Tre and JoeG. Wacky was trying to get Tre to say it on tape that she was being paid so the feds could use it against Tre and JoeG. More unreported income to use against them.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Since all this come to light I have often wondered if Jacqueline was offered a deal by the feds meaning if she helped them to get as much information on air about Teresa’s finances or get Teresa to confide in her and then report back that the Lauritas would not follow the same faith in lieu of their own bankruptcy process.
      I always thought that it was mighty weird that Jacqueline was suddenly so interested on Teresa’s finances and in finding out or putting out there that Teresa was being paid by these magazine covers (could it be that it was another way to prove that Teresa was hiding assets).
      I also have the suspicion that the Gorgas and production inviting Monica Chacon to that party was not a coincidence at all, they probably wanted a confrontation that would result in blurting things that were supposed to be hidden from the public’s view.
      I hate to say this because it sounds like I am making excuses for Teresa (obviously if she and her husband wouldn’t have done any of these alleged crimes they wouldn’t have to worry at all) but I do sense that in this mess and in the gathering of evidence , Melissa and Jacqueline’s hands are not clean at all.

      • lulu says:

        Interesting theory but no the feds do not need any help uncovering evidence. Tre/joe submitted plenty on their own. Wacky jack is evil plain and simple. She had no reason to go after Danielle but she did. Now her new target is tre and the angle of using mego is not panning out. Its sad and pathetic if only she’d invest all that time to her sweet son Nick.

      • cusi77 says:

        Not that I would defend Jacqueline, whom clearly wanted to make Teresa talk in front of the cameras about her going to jail and to talk about the real responsibility in their financial issues… But KIM G has NONE credibility on my book.

        I don’t believe that Jax fed Monica Chacon with information because she had none! Teresa has kept her financial issues just for themselves. Reason for which Jacqueline invited her (When Laurita became “Lurkita”) To clarify why the Magazines were saying “I am afraid to be poor” “My life without Joe” and her with one her girls and her fake dog… Jacqueline is a moron, but is she malicious? I find difficult to believe.JMHO. Oh! Everybody knew something was going down for the finale! If Jax had more information… why she didn’t share with Melissa in advance? What.an.idiot.

  15. Donna says:

    My take on he/she said he/she didn’t say. Teresa would have been damned if she told what she knew as a warning. Remember when Teresa was trying to tell Melissa something was going on and Melissa blew her off with a wave of the hand and immediately called baby Joey. Melissa knew something was going down and was very gleeful to make it seem that it was Teresa. I can’t remember when I have a vague memory of Teresa warning someone and everyone was very angry with her.

    • melthehound says:

      Forget it Donna… It’s all Teresa’s fault that all these bones have come out of MeGo Martyr’s past closet to bite her in the ass. You obviously watched the same show I did though.

      • Sasha says:

        What I see is everyone’s wrongs coming to light. From their own behaviors and faults. No one to blame but themselves. Each man for himself.

        • melthehound says:

          What I have seen all season is that the kids couldn’t play together because of what Teresa did. Joey didn’t want anything to do with his sister. Phuck Nut was done with Teresa even though her nose was permanently stuck to T’s ass.

          • Sasha says:

            Being mad and not talking to family members is the family dynamic to me. Maybe that is why I don’t involve myself too much when they are warring.

            • melthehound says:

              Seems to me that this entire season and last season for that matter, so far, has been about how Teresa has wronged everyone around her. SHE needs to own up to Her mistakes (or whatever) and SHE needs to apologize for them. None of the others ever have any faults. The Gorgas have sucked up to the Lurkitas because they had a common enemy, Teresa. I actually think they’re all phucked in the head and that’s a little more than my own wiki-shrink telling me that. Let’s at least be honest here… Legal problems aside, if they aren’t ‘warring’ with Teresa, there is no show. Bravo has sunk so far into that pool, they are drowning in it. I didn’t recap it last week because everything that came out of the F Nut’s mouth smelled of bullshit. Honestly, I’m tired of saying that. I kept waiting for the real reason she is so upset with Teresa and all I’m getting is that she’s pissed that T gave her exactly what she asked for…. Distance. The only one who has made any real sense on this show this season, is the dumb ape, Joe Guidice. How STUPID do the rest of them have to be for that to be the case?

              • Powell says:

                MTH so they had their summit & Jac still didn’t say why she’s so mad at Tre?

                Damn. There’s been nothing but summits the 2013 season of the HWs.

    • Sasha says:

      I recall Melissa blowing it off because she said she didn’t care what he said. Teresa(her role) wanted her to confront him. That’s when a 911 was put out to Baby Joey. Then Teresa wanted no part of that plan.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        That ladies room convo was enlightening.
        Teresa wanted to confront Baldy WITH Melissa, which showed she wanted to help her SIL clear her name and end the rumors of her past. Teresa was worried when her SIL called her little brother because T knows him well enough to know he likes to get into physical altercations, which equal jail. Mel didn’t care about what her hubs might do. And of course, true to form, Baldy had left the building so T’s bro wanted to fight Kim D!

  16. plainviewsue says:

    Great job as always Stars!

    Yes, I did sit back a bit when Albie said He’s not ready to be happy. He needs to see a therapist. For a 26 year old to make that statement, esp when he has been giving more opportunities than any other 26 year old I know! His self worth and self esteem is in the toilet. The best thing for him would be to move across the country for a while and get away from his family. Just do it on his own for awhile.

    I felt sad when he said that.

    • Sasha says:

      Sue, I felt bad for Albie too. He always seems so guarded, He seems to have a few issues and I don’t think they all involve his family.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      IMHO – Albie was/is coming to the realization that he is a failure in business and can’t even make enough money to pay the rent! He is unhappy for a good reason and hopefully he will figure out a career path that will lead to his success and happiness.

    • Powell says:

      I think when Albie was being threatened w/being thrown out of law school his self-esteem plummeted. I think Caro & Albert just let him quit instead of really supporting him to seek assistance that was available to him. And then uncle Chris comes up w/Black and that was Albie’s excuse to not even try. There are so many successful people w/dyslexia.

  17. plainviewsue says:

    Of course, Andy didn’t ask Caroline about any of that on WWHL or the argument with Al. Nope, let’s talk about Teresa…………………

  18. Donna says:

    I hope they get away with it. How many people are homeless because of the shyster banks. I cannot count the number of credit cards that were sent to me, telling me all I have to do is call the number and it will be activated. I shredded a platinum one. How many people receive applications for credit cards, pre-approved. As you can tell I am very angry that I am constantly bombarded with credit cards. I do have a couple but use them for a credit rating as we are retired.

    • Powell says:

      I get where you’re coming from Donna. But my wish is coming true. Bank of America & JP Morgan Chase have been charged w/fraud. I want some people in jail.

  19. windycitywondering2 says:

    I just have to vent! The promo commercial for tonight’s RHNJ with Wacky Jacky going under the knife yet again, with Chris saying there is the risk she won’t wake up – WTF!? She is getting a vanity surgery because she is too damn lazy to actually exercise and eat right! Are we supposed to feel sorry for her? Thank you, that is all.

  20. Called A Princess says:

    What I read on another site about the fashion show debacle was that everyone was in on it except Teresa. Bravo had the whole set up pretty well planned out and then out in the parking lot, Jacq’s allegedly went off the reservation. Because of her Bravo had to reedit the episode so that all the scenes would make narrative sense. Even with the production edit it was presented in a very disjointed manner because Bravo could not control Jacq’s. This was allegedly why Jacq’s was allegedly asked to not attend that year-end reunion. Bravo, no longer trusted her not to discuss narrative from the new season and she had added to production costs because of her out of control behavior at the fashion show.

    • Laineylainey says:

      CAP!!! Great comment! It makes sense now why they all looked so guilty When they all walked in to the fashion show together! They are horrible actors and it was obvious that they were ALL in on the “lets bring Tre to her knees” plan.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      I think Kathy wasn’t in on the set up either.
      But Wacky and Lauren knew the most, then hipped Caroline and Melissa. And judging from their behavior they were definitely down with Teresa being the one fileted and fried at the fashion show.

      • Powell says:

        Ok so that means they wanted Tre off the show. If Bravo was in on the setup why would they also want Tre, their cash cow so to speak off the show? The rest of the cast couldn’t bring in a crowd at a high school play. They can’t bring in ratings w/o Tre.

    • Powell says:

      Hi CAP. Well that pissed me off even more cause Caro & Lauren were sitting there listening to Jac that Tre did this setup on Mel. Jac said at the next season’s reunion Tre was in on it & tried to get her involved. You see. Why would Joey & Mel not believe Tre?

  21. T-Rex says:

    Catching up on Project Runway, I like having a bunch of episodes in a row to watch. Like the new twist of the “save” by Tim Gunn. That Timothy guy is a whackado, I don’t think Helen is a very good designer, IMO, have only seen two shows but didn’t like either of her outfits

  22. HuskerHuny says:

    I just re-watched the season finale of RHOC and I have to say one thing.

    Watching Tamra apologize to Jim Bellino (loved watching Jim tear up), I thought it was heartfelt. Now, that is coming from me who has had nothing good to say about Tamra since the day she set foot on this show. I do want to believe that she has done some soul searching and is trying to make amends for her atrocious behavior. Being a Christian, that is what I am taught to do.

    Now I’m going to qualify that statement. I am going to watch the three-part reunion and in particular, I’m going to watch Tamra. I will be watching if she can say her piece (or is it peace?) without getting all ‘mean girl’. If she can state her position without going off of her rocker, maybe there is hope for her and I will then give her a second chance. I do feel the ‘true’ Tamra will come out at some point and her garbage mouth will open and out will come all of her nastiness.

    Even if she does stay on her road to bettering herself, I still will not watch her wedding fiasco. Let’s see what happens!

    • cusi77 says:

      I am with you,HH! I wish her her change for a better is permanent… Watching her Wedding fiasco… I don’t think I will be watching… let’s see how The Reunion goes…

    • Powell says:

      Darn it Husker I forgot to turn and watch. Oh well. I’ll watch it Friday when I’m off or the weekend. But I like what you said. I hope did some soul searching & is/has really changed & with that said I will see how she handles herself at.the reunion as well. But no matter what I’m not watching her wedding. Her 1st season I liked Tamra but when Gretchen came on Tamra changed for the worst. I don’t care if Gretch was a gold digger or if Gretch, if Gretch & Jeff’s relationship was real or if Gretch & Jeff had an arrangement, Tamra set out from the beginning to not like Gretch & not give her a chance cause Gretch was yes was very pretty w/a great figure & Tamra’s “hottest housewife” status was threatened. Tamra was supposed to be getting to know Gretch & Tamra listened to some ex that wanted to promote himself & to get back at Gretch. None of that was called for. And Tamra got Vicki hating on Gretch. Gretchen was so desperate for Tamra to be her friend that she swept under the rug what Tamra did to her & as of the season finale they were kind of headed back to where they were before.

  23. cusi77 says:

    I’ve been trying to comment and I hope this time This site allows me.

    I’ve just read, when Albert and Caroline are crossing a bridge and in front of a Castle… The Name of the Castle is “LAMBERT”. Lambert Castle according to Wikipedia is in Paterson, NJ.

    What is the name of that Castle where Joey got to bite Juice’s &–ls?

    • cusi77 says:

      Nevermind.. It is Lake George Castle… They look alike but is not the same… So perhaps Caroline was brought that morning day for “Intervention” time with Dr. V.

  24. windycitywondering2 says:

    We all knew that the Guidice indictments were coming and we picked apart those documents when they were made public. While what they did was wrong and want them to answer for their actions and make whatever restitution resulting from their trials, I can still admire the fact that Teresa managed to successfully brand herself and actually make money off the opportunity that Bravo presents all housewives. I am sick of hearing all those “arm chair lawyers” going on about how much prison time Joe and Teresa will get – no one knows who or how much time will be spent in prison nor the amount of the fines they will likely incur! I can hate what they did but don’t have a reason to hate them personally or wish them ill or take delight in the consequences of their actions.

    The Lauritas are throwing everything but the kitchen sink into the wheels of justice to slow down the boat load of indictments that they eventually will have to face for their business bankruptcy and all the nasty little by products of their actions. The shady Lauritas have not managed to capitalize on the Bravo platform, nor have they changed their “lifestyle” and the choices being made, the Wacky one having elective cosmetic surgery vs putting their “income” towards Nicholas’ expensive treatments is a piss poor decision in my opinion. I am hard pressed to find anything about them that I can admire.

    Both the Guidices and the Lauritas got into hot water around the same time. I admire the way the Guidices have handled themselves since then, but the Lauritas, in particular Wacky Jacky, have handled themselves embarrassingly badly.

    Did anyone watch the premier of Hell on Wheels last night? It was so good. I thought it premiered tonight and missed most of it until I saw talk about it on Twitter. It was a 2 he premier. It repeated again. It was good.

  26. T-Rex says:

    WOW WOW WOW just finished the last episode of Project Runway, and applaud PR for their decision!! That dude to me was a douche anyway he was a ticking time bomb and glad they booted him after his extreme rudeness and outburst. Now, that being said Helen SUCKS as a designer, sorry she won that last challenge because Kate constructed the garment, She may have vision but she has no skill. I sew, of course not PR material, but I have made nice pieces and that last garment wasn’t even cut properly it wasn’t symmetric in the curves. Of course from the previews she will be SAVED again from elimination but having stronger designers around her since it’s going to be a team challenge, grrrr She needs to go, while Miranda is bad Helen IMO is worse

    • lulu says:

      Agreed. Sandro is another that needs to go!!! Every outfit looks like something a hooker would wear.

    • chismosa says:

      Hi T-Rex, that Sandro made me laugh sometimes but he was too loud and over the top. Him not showing respect to the almighty Mr Gunn was IT for me. You BOW DOWN to Tim Gunn on this show.
      He gives Russians a bad name.

      I can’t believe they wouldn’t allow him or entertain him coming back!?! Haven’t we had storm-offs before??? I find that interesting
      Zac Posen and his super affected voice annoys me. I wish stupid MK was back.

      I like Helen and would love to see what she showed she can make in the pre- runway shows, I don’t think she can hack it.

      Ps– the bare midriff thing is very “in” but I don’t think that designer knew how to do it correctly and she did it by accident.

      I adore the modern dancer guy!!!
