More Leaks for the Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion / Real Housewives of Miami / Project Runway / Inspirational Blog

More has been leaked about the upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. According to the Huffington Post, Melissa Gorga got physical with sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, and Teresa threatened to sue her.  This is according to an insider.  (There are a whole lot of insiders related to the Real Housewives of New Jersey.)  This is coming out after Melissa said on Wendy Williams that Teresa had twisted her wrist.  Teresa is defending herself against that allegation – and her friends are backing her up and telling the Huff Post nothing happened at that party.

RadarOnline also has some information about the reunion. “There was so much yelling, Andy  was shouting at us to be quiet!” said Lauren Manzo, adding that “Xanax was passed around like candy.”  Ugh – that sounds familiar.  Apparently Teresa tells Andy that she pleaded with him to take out all the footage of stripper allegations against Melissa.  Not that it would have helped – it was all over the news at the time.  Joe told Teresa that their dad said she was going around town saying Melissa used to be a stripper.  And when Teresa said that her mom told her that Kathy and Richie were getting a divorce, Kathy told Teresa, “her mother is a “f***ing liar” and that she is a “disgrazia.” (Italian for disgrace.).  

Radaronline had a second article on Teresa – that called her “the most hated housewife on television.”  According to the article, Teresa told them, “I said to myself I wasn’t going to get upset, but I couldn’t help it.  After the taping (of the reunion) was done, I broke down. I started crying and I couldn’t stop.”

Cat Omnanney had her Inbox Full2 Party yesterday.  Sonja Morgan was in attendance accompanied by Milliondollar Listing NY bravolebrity Michael Lorber.  Sonjainthecity – Sonja’s company -planned the event.   Other bravo and ex-bravo cast listed in the sarcasm.net article included Kathy and Richie Wakile, Rosie Pierri (Kathy’s sister), and Dina Manzo.  Lynn attended a similar event when Inbox Full launched, and blogged about it for us.  Cat had invited her to attend this year’s event.

Want to learn more about the relationship between Joanna Krupa and fiance Romain?  There’s an article and video here.

Real Housewives of Miami, A Mynt Meltdown by MKValle

Joanna and Romain are in bed.  He’s writing emails, she wants to play.  He’s annoyed, she annoying.  We all wake up with cameras in the morning, don’t we?  Marta calls Joanna in the room to talk about Lisa’s offer to have Marta stay at her house.  Joanna doesn’t like the idea.  Marta, you’re a big girl, move out and let your sister get on with her life.

Karent’s skyping with Rodolfo.  She tell him about last weeks Swine & Wine event where ladies talk Rodolfo being her make believe boyfriend and Ana tells her Rodolfo texts her.  Rodolfo tells her not to listen to any of the “snakes”, just walk away.  Once again, Karent tells us how he’s a handsome soap opera that everyone is falling in love with him.  Rodolfo talks about wanting a harem, Karent thinks he’s kidding, I don’t think he is.  I don’t think this relationship will last the season.

Not much of Adriana this week.  She meets with her business partner and talks about the upcoming art show where she wants to invite true art collectors, not just people looking for free alcohol and entertainment.

Lisa’s lounging at the pool where her maid Daysy brings her a vodka and redbull.  After all, she’s the princess of the house.  Lisa tells us (again) that Daysy is more like a paid friend and that she needs to lose weight before getting plastic surgery.  Joanna calls and invites her (and the rest of the girls) to the 10 year anniversary of Romain’s  nightclub.  Lisa is going to host a pre-party sushi get together for the ladies.

Lea tells us about her maid Freda.  Freda lives in her own apartment on the property.  She doesn’t clean, do laundry, or cook.  She has a driver, computer, alarm system and a part time housekeeper. Lea’s doing her hair.  Lea’s just adding those little ball elastics to her already braided hair.  RJ (Lea’s son) is teaching Freda how to swim, she doesn’t have a swimsuit so she jumps fully clothed.  Freda’s been around a long time, RJ loves her, the dogs love her, she’s the queen of the house.

Marysol is being interviewed by the editor of Ocean Drive magazine.  They are doing a “day in the life” on her.  She’s a girl about town and has a successful business.  No Elsa this episode.

Romain goes in to get his citizenship.  Did Joanna really just wait in the car for him?  Odd scene. Romain comes out, an American citizen.  He’s very proud and thankful for all the USA has allowed him to accomplish.  He came to America from France with $1000 that he went through in 2 months, worked his way up from busboy to club ownership.  If it wasn’t for America, he wouldn’t have a Ferrari, he wouldn’t have a club.  Hmm, I don’t have either of those and I’ve been an American for a long time.  Must be doing something wrong.

Lea has her meeting for volunteers for her gala. They aren’t the type of women who would volunteer to set up tables & chairs and be on the decorating committee.  Her main goal is to get them to buy tables and donate items.  Lea’s good friend, Elaine Lancaster (a drag queen) makes a late entrance.  Oops drama, the drag queen says Marysol wouldn’t let him walk on the red carpet last year.  He feels disrespected by Marysol.  Lea tells us Elaine is very well liked in the community and Marysol better make nice with him.  The Patton Group will not be doing the PR for the gala this year.

Ana’s getting ready to hit the nightclub with the girls.  She talks about problems with her boyfriend Mark.  He is upset because Ana’s not divorced yet.  It’s been 2 years, don’t know what the hold up is.  Her ex Robert drops by the house for food.  He talks about his great relationship with his 30 year old, she’s sh*tting rainbows, is 15 years younger than Ana and doesn’t fight with him.  Oh, and she doesn’t fart.  Great.

Some of the ladies are at Lisa’s eating sushi.  Joanna doesn’t want any drama, but she starts (and ends) the evening starting drama.  Arguing with Marta about Romain.  Just the third episode and I’m tired of hearing about it already.  Anyone else with me?  Lisa’s husband Lenny tells us he was a surgeon at 23, that he skipped college?  What? Skipped college?  Some research might be needed on this one.  Karent and Adriana arrive, putting an end to another Joanna/Marta argument.  They start an conversation about Elsa, Adriana says she’s a lady in her 70’s and looks great.  Lisa says no, she doesn’t look great, she looks scary.  Adriana was a bit angry at the girls remarks of Elsa.

The ladies are at Mynt.  It’s a fabulous club in fabulous Miami Beach.  Marysol and Ana arrive at the club, followed by Lea and Elaine Lancaster, the drag queen.  Lisa comments, “Shoot me if I’m at a club at the age of 40”.  Joanna, who’s a bit tipsy now, attempts to find out what went on between Marysol and Elaine at last year’s gala.  I’m confused and don’t have a clue what happened.

Joanna spots the DJ at Mynt who “done wrong” by Marta.  The DJ and Marta dated for four years, he cheated, they broke up and he’s with the woman he cheated with.  Joanna doesn’t like it one bit.  She’s sobbing, yelling that she f*cking hates him, over and over.  Romain is embarrassed, tried to calm Joanna down, Lea, Karent, Adriana try to calm her down.  Not happening.  Romain takes off for fresh air (run Romain, run!) , who can blame the guy.  Marta shows up at the table yelling at Joanna for getting involved in her affairs.  Lisa, the voice of reason (surprise) says the sisters are in each other’s business too much and they need a time out.

That’s it, off to a slow start, maybe something exciting will happen next week.

______

A few notes from NMD – I was a little curious about the what was going on between Elaine, Lea and Marysol because that seemed to be the main drama Lynn’s insider reported on last year.

Elaine and Lea seem to be good friends – tweeting each other back and forth.  A few days ago Elaine tweeted this:

You’ve gotta Have FRIENDS & I’m a lucky gal to have @LeaBlackMiami as one of my dearest. Wish this woman a great day.

Elaine exchanged tweets with a few of the ladies last night -and took a few gentle swipes at Marysol.  It sounds like some of this will be explained in the cast blogs.  I find it a little more interesting than the “texting” drama from last week and the sister-sister-fiance drama we saw this week.  How funny that we’ve got another model married to a club owner and sister drama – hello Atlanta’s Cynthia – someone stole your storyline.

Project Runway “It’s Fashion Baby” by BB

This month, Project Runway host Heidi Klum launched her own baby fashion line called Truly Scrumptious for Babies R Us.

Tonight, the remaining six designers will be challenged to make a look for Heidi’s baby clothes line.  Oh, no!  First, real women, now real babies!  Three designers get boys and three designers get girls.  There will be a boy winning look and a girl winning look to be featured as part of Heidi’s line.  The designers meet their models, who range from 12 to 18 months.  Dmitry thinks they’re screwed.  Chris is happy with his model, who is wearing some Cheetah shoes.  The designers have 30 minutes to meet with the babies and moms.  Tim tells them to listen to the moms carefully.

Elena’s client likes blazers (for a baby?); Melissa’s baby’s mom likes pink; Dmitry’s baby’s mom is opinionated; Fabio’s client likes things that are easy to put on.  Fabio was a babysitter when he first came to New York.  His baby’s mom also likes vintage.  Christopher’s baby’s mom likes to dress classic but has trouble picking out something she likes in the store.  Chris may have trouble making the mom happy.

There is a special surprise awaiting the designers back in the workroom.  It’s those mechanical babies.  The designers will have to take care of the babies while they are designing.  They are like the baby dolls high school teenagers have to take care of so they will never ever have sex.  Ha, Ha!  When the babies cry, they either need to be fed, changed or rocked.  Elena is in shock.  It’s hilarious to watch the designers walking around the room with babies on their shoulders trying to get them to shut up.  How in the world are they going to get their outfits done in a day?

Fabio loves his fake baby.  He can’t seem to put it down.  He wants to have a family.  Dmitry doesn’t think he’ll be having babies anytime soon.  Chris, Elena and Melissa have girl baby models.  Fabio, Dmitry and Sonjia have boy baby models.  Melissa has a good fake baby, Elena has a fussy one.

The designers are having baby wars.  Sonjia accuses Fabio’s baby’s crying as causing all the other babies to cry.  Fabio says his baby is polite, it’s the other babies that aren’t.  This is so fun to watch.

Heidi and Tim come in to give all the designers their little critiques.  Heidi doesn’t think Melissa’s outfit is very fun.  She seems to like everyone else’s designs, but gives each of them pointers to make them more fun and whimsical.  Melissa thinks Christopher is copying her white denim jacket from a previous challenge.  Oh, wait, Heidi just threw in another challenge.  The designers must make a companion piece for the moms.

Mayhem ensues and the designers all have their trials and tribulations getting their outfits ready.  At least they get an extra day.  They are told the babies outfits are what will be mainly judged.  The designers have to take their babies to Mood to get the fabric for the Moms’ outfits.  Tim tells the designers not to try to please the moms, they are just to compliment the babies on the runway.

Melissa decides to completely change her baby outfit from leggings to a white shift dress.  The designers had to take the babies back to Atlas with them, so of course, they didn’t get much rest.  There is at least one baby crying at all times.  Tim comes in that morning and takes the babies off to daycare.  Melissa says it’s perfect because she was going to neglect her baby that day anyway.

Fabio doesn’t like the colors Elena is using for her baby and Christopher wants to know why Melissa is making her baby a cocktail dress.  Melissa is way behind and hasn’t started on her mom’s outfit yet.  Elena is trying to do a drape dress for her mom, which she has never done.

The moms come in with their babies for the fittings.  Dmitry’s baby looks like one of the Cone Heads with that hood.  Melissa has nothing done for her mom.  Christopher’s mom hates the outfit he made for her baby.  She also hates the dress he made for her.  She tells Christopher she feels like she’s wearing her mom’s dress.  Poor Christopher is about to freak out.  Melissa should be freaking out since she hasn’t even started on the mom outfit.

Sonjia tells Christopher not to worry so much about what “Mary J. Blige” thinks, it’s what Heidi thinks that counts.  When the designers finish for the day, the talk is about what Melissa has to do the next morning before the runway show.  Melissa hasn’t finished either of her outfits.  When the mom’s come in, Christopher’s mom apologizes to him for how she acted the day before.  Dmitry and Fabio both think they have made the best outfits and that Sonjia is their competition.  Melissa has to ask her baby’s mom to help with her outfit by sewing buttons on.  Dmitry’s baby is getting fussy and he’s worried because the baby has to sell his look.

It’s runway time and Melissa is still at the sewing machine.  Tim tells Melissa she has to get her outfit on the mom whether it’s finished or not.  The guest judge for this challenge is Hilary Duff, who is a new mom herself.

Fabio’s mom and baby look adorable.  I love the baby’s outfit with the shorts and hat!  Melissa’s dress looks awful on her baby and is not cute at all.  The mom’s outfit is even worse.  Dmitry’s outfit is unique and cute, but I still don’t like that pointy hood.  Sonjia’s outfit looks cute and comfortable, but it’s not my favorite.  Christopher’s outfit looks prissy and girly on his baby.  I like it and think he will at least be safe.  Elena’s outfit is the most unique of them all and her baby definitely stands out.  It may not be what I would pick out for my baby girl, but it’s “fashion forward.”  If I had to pick a fav, it would be Fabio’s design.  My least fav is Melissa’s design.  I’m not going by the mom’s outfits, just the babies’.  With the exception of Melissa, I think they all did a good job.

Sonjia’s baby is flirting with and wowing the judges.  Heidi thinks Sonjia’s baby looks sharp and he looks like a little man.  The other judges like it and like the mom’s outfit too.  It’s no fuss, but smart.

Melissa tries to explain her look.  Heidi loves the jacket but not the dress.  It’s too simple and rides up over the diaper.  She doesn’t like the zipper on the side because it might be uncomfortable.  Heidi also thinks the mom’s outfit is too messy.  Michael thinks Melissa’s mistakes were in her fabric choices.  The judges all like the vest, but not the dress.

Heidi loves Fabio’s baby’s look and all the details.  She’s not crazy about the mom’s look.  Nina likes both mom and baby’s outfits.  Hilary loves the old fashion look.

Michael thinks Elena’s baby’s jacket is well-made, but the rest of the outfit has too much going on.  Heidi doesn’t like the pants on the baby’s outfit.  All the judges like the jacket except Nina.  She sees no practicality in the jacket.  Nina likes the mom’s look, but it’s not a mom’s challenge.

Dmitry’s baby is asleep while he’s explaining his look.  Michael likes how graphic the baby’s outfit is, but the hood makes it a little super-heroish.  Heidi says a lot of kids clothes are like that and it’s a trend.  Michael didn’t know and learned something.  Hilary thinks it’s borderline costume, but she likes it.  Heidi thinks it’s kind of out there, but a lot of moms would like it.

Michael is last but not least.  Nina thinks it looks adorable, but not practical.  Heidi thinks it’s a baby dress up outfit that’s adorable.  She also likes the mom’s dress.  Michael doesn’t like the jacket, but loves the dressy dress.  Hilary loves the sweet dress and thinks the jacket is cut well and the headpiece is adorable.  Both mom and baby look like they are going to Sunday brunch.

Heidi congratulates them all for doing a great job, especially under the circumstances.  There will be two winners, one boy look and one girl look.  Nina loves Fabios’ boy look; Heidi and Hilary love Sonjia’s look.  They liked Dmitry’s look and think it would be one a baby would wear a lot.  Nina thinks it looks like a crayon.

For the girls’ looks, the judges all liked Christopher’s dress.  Hilary called it whimsical and sweet.  The judges are not crazy about Elena’s outfit, but don’t hate it either.  They really don’t like Melissa’s outfit, especially the dress.  The vest is good, but it’s not a head to toe look.

Sonjia is the winner for the boy look and Christopher is the winner for the girl look.  Dmitry and Fabio are safe.  That leaves Elena and Melissa in the bottom.  Elena is out.  I don’t agree this time.  I think Melissa should be gone for that design only.  Overall I think Melissa is a better designer than Elena and that’s probably why the judges decided to keep her, but if it was just based on this challenge alone, Melissa should be out.

I totally enjoyed this episode; no big histrionics and cute babies.  What more could you ask for?

From MarDrag

Hello All! I have some (I hope) good news! Through the aftermath of the tragedy of Lynn’s passing I wanted to help in some way.

Your acceptance of this has thrilled me, but also, your responses that what I had to share has helped you has warmed my heart. I am so very glad it has had a positive impact in some of your lives.

It is this, and your kind words, that has inspired me to start my own blog. There is so much more I would like to share, and I have some great ideas that I hope will benefit everyone even more. It will also relieve NMD from one less thing on her plate, as we all know how hard she works to keep this blog going. (as well as the others!). Thank you NMD for handling the page!

My Love and Hugs go out to you all! I hope to see you over at From The Desk of MarDrag!

P.S. I am new to this blogging thing, so be patient with me as I learn the ropes!! J

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning and happy Friday everyone. It’s a sunny Friday. Have a great day!

  2. AZGirl says:

    Good morning Everyone! Powell I hope you had a great birthday. MarDrag I will stopping by and checking out your blog. Off to the gym!

  3. Morning all!! It’s a rainy Friday here but still Friday so in my mind it’s sunny!!! My take on Miami is that Karent is a FOOL if she believes that Rodolfo isn’t cheating on her. Her pathetic attempts at defending him and their “relationship” is just sad. She’s a beautiful woman with a successful career, she could definitely find someone to treat her as she deserves to be treated. Joanna needs to get a wake up call….it’s “understandable” to be a drunken screaming crying mess at a club when you’re in your late teens/early twenties but when you’re engaged, in your late twenties/early thirties, with a career, it just looks pathetic and childish. She needs to LET go of her sister and quite frankly Marta needs to grow a pair and move out….does she really need Sissy’s approval for everything? Pack your bags and GET out girl!!! Marysol doesn’t bother me but I sure wish she would do more impressions of Elsa…she killed me with that last time!!! Alexia was definitely my favorite because she had such a good head on her shoulders….she was able to balance out family/real housewives etc without letting anything change who she was to her core. Adrianna is so insecure it’s obvious. She needs to admit to herself she doesn’t want to be with Frederic and be done with…oh and stop flirting with other people’s men sweetie…not cute. Lea…well..Lea is the mamma bear and even though she’s a bit of a wackodoodle I don’t mind her. She is definitely smart so the idiosyncracies don’t bother me as much. Lisa is just such a vapid airhead and I can’t deal with her…..the princess crap/fembotness is boring…..get a storyline sweetie and enough with the botox and fillers otherwise you’ll look like Elsa by next week. It almost looks like her face is a balloon that’s been blown up to the point of almost popping….no movement in her face at all..you don’t know if she’s pissed, happy, sad or miserable…no change in her expression. Bad work in my opnion and her boobs look like Alexis’ from RHOC. The mark of GOOD plastic surgery (incl fillers) is that it is subtle. These women however don’t know the meaning of subtle espeically Lisa with those two canteloupes sitting on her chest….

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I agree with everything you just said. I said it last night, and I will say it again: RHOM has the hottest/most attractive cast members in the entire Housewives franchise.

      It SEEMS (I could be wrong, though) like many of them have REAL money as opposed to some of the other shows where they ACT like they have money, but they really do NOT.

    • Powell says:

      I don’t know what’s up w/Karent & her soap opera playa BF but she’d better wise up to his games. Joanna is a protective big sis which I understand sin e she helped raise her but she needs to let her live her life. It’s so obvious that Joanna is trying to create a story for herself. I tweeted Alexia that I missed her last night. She’s also my fav & ITA w/your assessment of her. Adriana is a trip. I think she loves Fredric but is just to afraid from what her ex did to her. Tell ne why Ana isn’t ready to sign the divorce papers after 2 yrs. Her ex sure is. Lisa is a harmless ditz. I like her but I think her ditziness is what turns Lea off. Lisa totally needs to stop w/all cosmetic surgery/injectables enhancements. She’s too young for all that & is quite attractive.

  4. Oh I forgot Ana….I like her but there’s something she’s not admitting as far as the “never happening” divorce….methinks she still wants her ex….but so far she seems like she has a good head on her shoulders and is a good business woman, albeit it her and her daughters talk about topics that are a little too much TMI for me…

    • disgrazia4 says:

      The money too, for her children. She’s also concerned about a second wife’s claim to her children’s inheritance, or is at least justifying her refusal to divorce on that.

      • I was about to say she is probably justfying her refusal on that but then I realized she’s a lawyer. (as am I) so she knows that as part of her divorce settlement she can stipulate that Robert agree to set up trusts for their kids as part of his estate plan, get life insurance in a certain amount for the benefit of the kids etc., so I think it’s more of an emotional thing than financial….

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I agree with this too. SHE seems to be the one resistant to officially getting divorced. Her ex-husband seems like he was ready to do it “yesterday.” I love the very friendly relationship they have because it is good for their children. I can’t wait to see her boyfriend. I also admire the way she manages to be a successful lawyer; a successful homemaker/cook and a cookbook author; and a good Mom. She’s one of those women who looks like she has been able to juggle and have it “all,” which is NOT easy.

  5. WindyCityWondering says:

    Good morning to all! Off to replace my Blackberry that one of my huskys decided to munch on last night!

  6. disgrazia4 says:

    Oh no she di’int!!!!!! Kathy has a lot of nerve calling T’s Mom a disgrazia!! I imagine T’s parents being the most tight lipped of this Jersey bunch. They never spoke to the camera, Teresa never translated for them. Conversely, Kathy is quite the blabbermouth talking about her family since the get go! Her Mom has talked about her own brother and SIL and she has told tales of her childhood. Also, everyone knows my own blogging name is dedicated to the 4 disgrazia who famewhored their way onto our screens in order to humiliate one of their own and make a buck in the process! The nerve of that zingara strega disgrazia!! OK, have a nice day. 😉

    OT: Has anyone seen OneMoreInBoston?? I haven’t heard from her in a bit and I’m starting to worry. I don’t have her email and I haven’t seen her in any of our Lynn places. OMIB, if you’re lurking, I’m thinking about you and hoping that all is well. Please contact me. ❤

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I’ve been wondering about OMIB myself. I know we see Boston a bit less, but that’s because she’s busy with being back in school.

      OMIB, come out! Come out wherever you are! We miss you!

      When did Kathy’s mom call Teresa’s mom a disgrace? I totally missed that!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Oops, never mind, Disgrazia with regard to the Kathy question. I have this habit of saving “the best for last” (when it comes to food and when it comes to reading different items on different blogs. I saved the Jersey part of this blog for last and realized I failed to read it. I’m going back up to read it now. That probably answers my Kathy question.).

      • disgrazia4 says:

        NMD says it’s a reunion leak.

    • Mary E says:

      whatever happened to erizzle? anyone know?

    • Powell says:

      I don’t like them bringing their parents into their infantile fights.

  7. Powell says:

    MKV you are so right. I was tired of Joanna’s drunken tears at Mynt on Romain’s special night. Did you figure out if it’s 7 or 10 yrs? Ha. Joanna is still so upset at the DJ ex after 4 yrs? I don’t think so. He camera time faked drama. And speaking of fake, when Elaine said Marysol didn’t let her walk the red carpet at last yrs gala. I’m like da*n, that was last yr. Lisa’s red bull & champs as Dubrow calls it, I have never heard of before. Doesn’t the red bull just defeat the purpose? Oh well what do I know. I missed Alexia last night. I hope we see her next week. Great job MKV. 🙂

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Alexia seems like she is just as beautiful in the inside as she is on the outside. I thought that last season, and I still think it.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        She seemed a little full of herself last season, but I still like her overall. I hope her son is doing well.

  8. cocfarm says:

    Dont know if it was listed above but Andy Cohen is cohost on the view today if someone wants to throw things at the tv.

    • LuvMyGals says:

      Is that the show with Whoopi? Maybe she’ll hand him his ass.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I watched. He actually was not that bad, and the women seemed to enjoy him. I DO wish he would get called out a bit more regarding his blatant favoritism and blatant dislike of certain housewives.

      Like many of you, I also wish someone ELSE hosted the reunions. I think Jeff Lewis or Kathy Griffin would be great. I know many people hate her, but I also think Nancy Grace (if given every episode of every season to review) would be a good interviewer. I also think the same thing about Joan Rivers or Wendy Williams. Joy Behar (I know many people hate her too) would be good too, I think. I thought she was great on the “Mob Wives'” last reunion show.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        IMO… Joy Behar was not very good when she did the Mob Wives reunion. She let the room get the best of her. She also has a habit of stepping on peoples responses to her questions and it seems like she is rushing the pace of the show. I do want it to be a women. Jeff is really not a host because he is too introverted and a trouble maker, like Andy. I do not want a male as the host because it changes the dynamics of the room. I think any of the other female choices would be better then Andy. I think the reunion needs to be more about the cast and less about the host. It might be interesting to have a housewife from another franchise, be the host. Lisa Vandercamp? Cat, formally of DC? JMHO.

      • Powell says:

        Detox I do like Nancy Grace but she can get on my nerves. I don’t like it when she asks her guests a ? and if they disagree w/her she basically tells them their wrong & sometimes talks over people. If she hosted WWHL she would only turn a topic around to her ( in my Nancy Grace voice) sweet babies Lucy & (her son. I forgot his name).

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          You do make good points. I forgot about that.

          She does often turn the topic to her twins too. I agree with you on that also. I guess it’s because she had given up hope of ever getting married or having kids, and she found herself unexpectedly knocked up (NATURALLY) with twins at 46 or 47. That’s kind of a miracle (particularly for a FIRST-TIME pregnancy without any medical intervention. Older women having babies after they have already had at least one child is more likely because, supposedly, the body has become “primed” to become pregnant again. At 41, almost 42, I’ve given up the hope of having children. I guess it’s just not in God’s plan for some reason. *Shrug*).

            Watch out now Detox! I have a friend who thought the very same thing at your age. She named her son Ian, LOL.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I went to this psychic once a year for 2 years a couple of years ago. She was accurate about SO MANY things that had gone on in my life and that were presently going on. She was also extremely accurate about things that were going on in my life at that present time.

              She predicted things that were going to occur within that year that DID occur (She allows you to tape the session and to take notes. She also refuses to see people more than within 6 months to a year because she says God and time has to reveal some things). Her mother had “the gift,” and so did her grandmother. None of them could see for THEMselves, though — only for others.

              ….Anyhoo, she told me that I was going to have twins in either my mid- to late-40’s. I was 38 at the time. She told me that they were either going to be boy/girl or fraternal. They would NOT be identical. She also told me that twins ran on both sides of my family (which they DO).

              I told her that, at 38 years old, I was already EXHAUSTED and BURNT OUT from my job, and there was going to be absolutely NO way I would be able to run around after some damned kids in my mid- to late-40’s. I also told her that I had a special-needs brother, and I did not feel I could take on special-needs children, which they would probably be because of my advanced age.

              She told me they were going to be perfectly healthy and just as lively and active as I was as a child.

              I told her that, if that prediction came true, I was going to bring their bad a*sses to her office/salon TWICE a year so I could sleep as they tore up her place because they were destined to be juvenile delinquents because I would have absolutely NO energy to discipline them. So, I was just going to let them loose to do whatever the hell they wanted as I tried to rest and maintain my sanity.

              She just laughed.

              She is the 3rd or 4th psychic that predicted I would be having twins. The first one to do so was an 84-year old woman in the French Quarter who was 4’11 with dyed-flaming red hair and who used to be the personal psychic for the actor Tony Curtis. She retired to New Orleans because her son lived there. Everything she told me has come true thus far.

              But I REFUSE to believe the TWINS’ mess.

              I just can’t see it. *Shrug*

              I STILL don’t believe it. I think I have altered God’s plan (She said we had free will and could do so).

                  No, but more than one of them told me I had several past lives as a MAN (which explains a LOT, I think).

                  One of them also told me I once had a past-life as Middle-Eastern royalty (they probably tell that to everybody so they can feel special) and that I had such a love of different cultures, races and people, that I CHOSE, in this life, to come back as a mixture of SEVERAL (*Shrug*).

                  Oh yeah, with regard to the ONE and ONLY Man I say that I SHOULD have married and “the one that got away,” that last psychic described him to a T, and said that he and I had such a strong connection because we’d lived several past lives together: more than one as husband & wife; one as Mother & Son; and more than one as siblings.

    Good Morning everyone! Thanks for the news and Blogs Ladies! Great job!

    BB_ Thanks for Blogging PR! I have a question about Nina Garcia and Elena during judging time:
    I did not get (I didn’t understand) what Elena told to Nina which pronted her to tell Elena that that was her opinion… Knowing that Elena has an attitude problem which is in her disadvantage… Do you think that this was a factor for her being eliminated? Her little jacket was way better than Melissa’s vest. I agree with you that Melissa is more consistent with her successful designs.

    Who will be going to Linconl Park? Dmitri, Christopher and Sonjia? I think that the five designers left are good enough to put a good show there!

    I watched Miami HW’s like five minutes… made me laugh after NJ “TooMuchFabricatedDrama” should be the name of this Season! If the keep the same cast, I’m out for next Season! They beat this horse to death!

    Good luck MarDrag! Besos!

    • mkvalle says:

      Did you see the previews for the next Project Runway All Stars? I wish they replaced Isaac Mizrahi because I think he’s a bit of an ass. I think his designs suck so I have a hard time seeing him judge others. Looks like there’s a new host as well, modeling icon (according to the bio) Carolyn Murphy. Never heard of her. Joanna Coles, newly appointed editor in chief of Cosmopolitan is back as is Georgina Chapman, co-founder of Marchesa. The “all star” designers have some interesting characters, some good, some not so good. You can view the contestants recent work at http://www.mylifetime.com/shows/project-runway-all-stars/season-2/designers.
      Althea (I don’t remember her at all) has a couple of nice outfits, some hideous. I think those leggings were worn by the Sacramento King’s dancers in 1992. Andrae’s designs are all draping, not bad but show m e something else. Casanova likes to design handbags, Anthony Ryan does mens wear along with women’s clothing. Emilio, I remember that I really liked him, he is a nice guy. Ivy is a one note bitch of the her season, remember she was accused of copying her competitors. Joshua is a drama queen, go home already. Kayne has added a lot of shoes to his beauty pageant line. I liked him. I remember Laura, barely, she’s got some fabric pattern issues. Peach is just wrong, into designing tennis outfits, not an all star in my opinion. Suede has some cool stuff, if he’s only stop talking about himself in third person, Uli, love her work. Last but not least, Wendy Pepper. I like her designs but she’s a defensive.
      Sorry for the rambling.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I do not like how Isaac comes off as a person and or judge. He was past around from show to show for a while. I think he is a difficult person to work with. I do not like his designs for the everyday women. Most I have seen, seem joy less not unlike his snide persona. My take, is that he knows his talent is limited and that projects his failures onto the Project Runway All Stars. Who deserves that kind of pain? Maybe Wendy Pepper?JMHO.

        Can you picture Vickie in the delivery room? I bet she would be one of those people who freaks out and faints and take the medical attention away from the person in labor.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’m sure Vicki will find some kind of way to make it all about HERSELF (as usual).

              I was invited to my potential daughter-in-law’s delivery room, handed the camera and told to film it ALL, but avoid crotch shots. LOL. I basically hid behind the camera. The entire family was in that room. What an eye opener that was! Whoa!

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I happened to be in the room when one of my cousins gave birth because she requested my presence, and I stayed on the other side of the curtain until the baby was born. I walked over to look at the little papoose (because that’s EXACTLY what she looked like: reddish brown with a head FULL of black hair, so much so that she could have had a ponytail.) in her little infant contraption.

            Then I happened to turn to look at my cousin to smile at her and WAS unexpectedly HORRIFIED and TRAUMATIZED by what I saw. I can’t take the sight of ANY blood. So, I almost passed out. SERIOUSLY! From that day forward, I vowed if I ever had a baby, my husband/baby daddy would stay right next to my HEAD during the delivery. I do NOT want him witnessing ANYTHING that is going on down below AT ALL!! No filming of anything either!

          • trudie says:

            I agree. My husband was the only non-medical person in the room with me. When I had my second child, my boss (a woman) told me I should have my 2 year old daughter in the room so she could witness the birth of her new sibling. No thank you.

  11. Pghemtchick says:

    Morning Ty for the blogs. I’ve been reading not commenting too much as I’ve had some stuff going on.

    As for the new reunion tidbits, I swear their source is Melissa’s article from US Weekly (issue 920, Oct. 1,2012, pg 53). There’s a purple box that says “More reunion drama”. Then under a preview it has:
    “Jacqueline speaks up Absent from the 2011 reunion, Laurita goes on the offensive. Says a source, “She confronts Teresa and exposes how she’s always spoken badly about Melissa and Joe.”
    Lauren mocks Teresa Dubious that Giudice writes her own blog for Bravotv.com, Caroline’s 24 year old daughter-who was criticized by Giudice for having lap-band surgery- brings flash cards of words used in the blog and challenges her to define them. Reveals the source, “Teresa can’t.”
    Caroline zings Teresa Poking fun at Giudice’s floor-length green gown, Manzo quips, “You and your Christmas pageant dress!”
    Joe explodes Melissa’s husband “has a major blow up with Teresa,” says an insider. “it’s non-stop yelling! They don’t resolve their issues.”
    Teresa buries her head All the housewives air grievances about Giudice, but she doesn’t admit one fault. Says the source, “She’s in denial.”
    Kathy snaps When Melissa touches Giudice’s arm to get her attention, Giudice shouts, “I’ll sue you!” Kathy Wakile, referring to the time Giudice grabbed her face in Napa Valley, shouts back, “Should I sue you then?””

    • Called A Princess... says:

      If Teresa went postage, I would not blame her. She has been dealing with this crew throwing bed pan water in her face for two solid season. Something has to break, at some point. “All is fair in love and war” ? JMHO.

  12. Good Morning! Thanks for posting that NMD, and for your kind words and all you do. You are, as ever, a rock star! And thanks for the great posts everyone. I don’t watch Miami or NJ, but keep up on all the happenings through your great words. Love all the scoops you get too!

    Wishing everyone a Happy Friday and a lovely weekend! Hugs to all!

  13. LuvMyGals says:

    Powell! Belated Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderul year.
    Disgrazia, I’ve often wondered the origin of that word and why you had that name. So at least we have that clarified. I’m so so worn out by the HWs, haven’t watched much of anything. But I did catch a rerun of stripper gate. Anyone who cannot see that KimD was the puppeteer with scripting/orchestration by Bravo… well, I have some land. My greatest hope right now is that the rumors are true – no more Manzos. Think of all the negative energy that will no longer be making our screens “toxic.” (I think it’s funny that people use that word to describe relationships, but it fits in many cases.) I think Caroline needs to sit in Cafface permanently. And I have a suspicion that we’ll be hearing about a divorce within the year.She and Albert have been giving off that vibe. So if they don’t divorce it still seems apparent that there’s no marriage. (Again, my observation has been that the kids are comforting a very hurt “mama bear.”) Don’t care about Jac or Kathy and her extremely irritating husband. I do think that Melissa has a sincere heart (even though it has some weird NJ undertones.) I think a show that shows her family along with Teresa’s, them rebuilding their relationship, the kids, and their “Italian” husbands could be worth watching. I’ll be watching the reunion tomorrow – I really want Caroline to get her ugly ass handed to her. (Is she not strong enough that Lauren has to be there? Why is that wench there?) What a convoluted Bravo mess. I sometimes wonder if all the “actors” are in on all the antics and behind the scene they’re getting along just fine. I still find it hard to believe that people really can be this ornery, suspicious of one another, self-centered, and stupid – with such an overblown view of their lazy ass grown children.

    MTH – Thanks so much for the Survivor recap. I don’t think I’ll be able to watch it. I did something Wed nite that I hadn’t done for a long time – watched In the Middle and Modern Family WITH MY FAMILY! And we laughed and laughed together. That’s one of the best TV nights we’ve had for a few years. I think we need to repeat that one.

    Thanks again to all of you bloggers! Lynn brought some amazing people together.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Why was Albert the ONLY husband NOT there to support his wife the way all of the other husbands were? He ALWAYS uses the “work” excuse. I personally think he tries to be around Caroline as little as possible.

      I guess that’s why she pulled Lauren on there for support.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Are we sure that Albert is not there. He may just not be in the previews. Maybe he did not bring much drama. I do not think the show is really his thing. Most of the time he seemed to try to talk people out of the drama. I this point,

        I do not care if Melissa and Teresa mend the relationship. If I were Teresa I would try to figure out ways for the children to have play dates without both sets of parents, as much as possible. Melissa and Joey have proven to me untrustworthy, at this point, in the game. A year is a long time not to talk, when you are family, over fake Bravo drama! IMO.

        • Winston says:

          I don’t believe it is possible for the kids to even have play dates w/out the adults because not only is Melissa jealous of Tre, she is jealous of Tre’s kids and the attention they get. She has gone out of her way to make remarks about Gia and the outfits she is wearing when she dances and said all the adults were making remarks at her bday party about what she was wearing and that Tre is desperate for Gia to be famous. It looks to me like Gia is having a great time dancing.
          I read somewhere that the rift between Melissa and Tre is more about status than anything. The Gorga Family (Teresa’s extended family) come from money and the Marco
          Family (Melissa’s Family) do not. The Gorga’s have respect and status and the Marco’s do not. Melissa can never measure up because of her background. Joey married down in everyone’s eyes and Melissa knows it. I think that is why she tries so hard to emulate Teresa and wants everything she has. She is seeking that same kind of status and respect.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I do not care if Melissa and Teresa ever mend their relationship either.

          In fact, I think they should let that notion go and stay as far away from each other as possible for good (as in until one or the other drops dead. DONE).

          In my family, 2 of my aunts by marriage that LOATHED each other and fought with each other constantly until it ended up with one of them smashing the other over the head with a glass ashtray picked up from the other’s OWN coffee table managed, after THAT incident, to never have ANYTHING AT ALL to do with each other EVER again.

          Despite that, the brothers to whom they were married managed to remain close and still get together without their wives even though they lived right next door to each other. 3 of my Mom’s brothers lived on the same street in houses right next door to each other in a row. Their children grew up together more as siblings than first cousins. The children still managed to have playdates at each other houses, and everything was carefully managed so those 2 women never had to cross paths again.

          Teresa is definitely NOT a Saint. She has MAJOR flaws, but she just does not strike me as a MALICIOUS or DEVIOUS person that has the time or the smarts to mastermind “plots” to try and hurt Melissa. I know many people may disagree with me, but it is MY honest opinion.

          Has Teresa been guilty of bad behavior when it has come to Melissa in the past? Sure. (But so has Melissa.).

          Has Teresa been petty and childish when it comes to Melissa in the past? Yes (but so has Melissa).

          Has Teresa allowed her inability to appropriately and articulately express her emotions cause her to behave in inappropriate ways at times? Yes. (Melissa is sneakier and much more streetwise and manipulative than Teresa. She does her inappropriate and underhanded stuff to Teresa “in the dark” and “behind the scenes” and plays the “innocent, put-upon VICTIM,” — an act I do not buy for one single minute.).

          Has Teresa been supremely irritated and a little freaked out by Melissa’s constant copying of her clothing, her makeup artist, her hairstylist, her photographers, her former PR. company, etc., etc.? Yes. I would be too because I find that a person who DOES that SWF type of stuff is in desperate need of an identity of their own because they do not really have one. So, they try to take over the identity of the person with whom they have become obsessed for some reason. It’s just creepy, IMO.

          Has Teresa been jealous and competitive with Melissa in the past? Sure (But so has Melissa).

          At THIS point, however, I think Teresa no longer gives a damn what Melissa is doing and no longer feels the need to “compete” with Melissa because when it comes to having built a “brand” by which she can generate an income for herself and her family, she has Melissa beaten by MILES. I think THAT has become her focus (getting herself and her family out of debt).

          Melissa, on the other hand, has a JOKE of a singing career that, not only will probably never really bring ANY significant money into her household, it may eventually bankrupt Joey if he continues to bankroll that unrealistic “pipe dream” of Melissa’s for which she simply does not have the TALENT to accomplish. She is also too old, IMO, to appeal to the younger demographic to which she appears to be trying to appeal.

          Also, Teresa no longer has the need to compete with Melissa because she and/or her people now realize that she has the “X-Factor” that Melissa simply does NOT have. Teresa provokes visceral reactions in people. You either LOVE her or you HATE her, but the BOTTOM LINE is she is compelling enough to get people TALKING about her because she is INTERESTING (even her foibles and mistakes are interesting and cause tongues to wag).

          Melissa is simply NOT all that interesting. She does not have that “X-Factor.” You either have it or you don’t naturally. It cannot be manufactured (I think a large part of that has to do with the fact that I do not find Melissa to be all that genuine/authentic or even to really know which “identity” is really hers. First, she copied Teresa. Now, she’s trying to copy J-Lo. She’s failing miserably at both. Teresa is authentic and REAL, and it comes across — even when she is being authentically and really BAD!).

          In fact, the MOST INTERESTING thing about Melissa is TERESA! It is why almost every single interview of Melissa involves talking about MELISSA. It is also why, until very recently, Melissa was never really invited to talk shows and interviews ALONE, whereas Teresa was (because Teresa can give an entire interview about her products, businesses, children and husband with barely a mention of Melissa). Melissa has ONLY just recently been given a cover of a magazine (That has also always HAD to include a pic of Teresa somewhere on that same cover as well) because of the recent show about the PFS.

          Once that dies down, and Teresa continues to no longer have anything at all to do with Melissa….there will really be no more interest in Melissa (unless she leaves Joey or finds some new nemesis with which to pick a fight or start some type of drama).

          I think Teresa is DONE letting Melissa and Joey ride her “coattails” in any kind of way ANY longer. And she should KEEP it that way, IMO.

          I truly think Teresa is now DONE with Melissa. I think she has now accepted the fact that she will probably never be able to have a relationship with her brother again, but I think she would be there for him in a NY minute if he needed her.

          I think he, on the other hand, would step over her dead body in the street without too much thought or care as he runs behind his wife and continues to be brainwashed by her. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Joey is “Fredo” from “The Godfather,” a very WEAK and EASILY MANIPULATED man with an extreme sense of entitlement (for no good reason, really) who betrayed his brother because of his extreme resentment and jealousy over the fact that he felt his brother was given the position that should have been HIS!

          Because of this extreme entitlement, resentment and jealousy, Fredo betrayed Michael, his own brother. Fredo also had a trampy wife who brainwashed him and supported him in his thinking that HE deserved what was rightfully his but wrongfully given to Michael.

          So, Michael had him killed.

          In the same way, Teresa should symbolically “kill” Joey in her mind. She will never be able to trust him to refrain from hurting her again as long as he is with Melissa.

          She should send him and his kids gifts on all occasions that require gifts. She should show up at the hospital if he is ever ill or on his deathbed. And she should show up at his funeral.

          She should never ever give Melissa a g*ddamned thing again in LIFE! In fact, she should continue to simply IGNORE her. Narcissists hate to be ignored and/or to have NO attention paid to them.

          Teresa should stay far away from Melissa because Melissa is not to be trusted as far as she can be thrown; she wishes no good for Teresa and hers (She will forever find a way to make Teresa “pay” for not recognizing how great and wonderful and special she is the way her Sisters and her Daddy did and constantly told her. Narcissists need this. If the do not get it, or if they feel offended, they will hold it against the offender forever — even though they CLAIM to have “forgiven” the offender. Yeah, right!).

          To me, instinctively, I feel that Melissa IS MALICIOUS and DEVIOUS and will use any means necessary to get what she wants. She does not give a damn about Teresa or Joey’s parents at all, IMO. I honestly do not think she gives a damn about Teresa’s children either.

          I think Melissa is all about MELISSA. She is concerned with HER family and HERSELF only. Having Joey all to herself is thrilling to her, IMO (until a better option comes along, although I do not foresee that happening for her. *Shrug*).

          If I were Teresa I would facilitate the kids having playdates at their grandparents’ (because Teresa CAN trust her parents) or at some type of neutral location where all of the adults can avoid interacting with each other as much as possible.

          And “wash her hands” of dealing with her brother and Melissa ever again. JMHO.

            Oops, I meant to say “It is why, just until recently, almost every single interview of Melissa involved Melissa talking about TERESA.”

          • PJ says:

            I agree on all points. Teresa needs to cut Melissa out of her life forever and completely. Melissa will never be family to Teresa or act like real family. Even in Napa when she was “acting” nice she was putting Teresa down just saying it in a nice voice. Joey is being manipulated but in my opinion the way he reacts shows a lack of good character on his part. I have no respect for a man that allows himself to be manipulated like that because on some level he knows what he is doing is wrong. In my opinion Joey and Melissa are climbing Teresa’s back to achieve what they think will be fame and fortune, figuratively speaking they would walk over her cold dead body to get what they want. Just my opinion of course.

            Look at this blog, if it is representative of how people feel in general, the main person discussed when it comes to NJ is Teresa. People are over Caroline, no one cares about Kathy, Melissa is mentioned sometimes but not usually in a good way, Jac is mentioned but only because of her rants in her blogs, tweets and texts. It is Teresa people talk about either in a good way or bad way but it is Teresa, not the others. Teresa is the one with the x factor none of the rest have it, no matter what Kelly Ripa
            may say. Atlanta apparently it’s NeNe and to some degree Kim. NY I don’t know right now. I think you need a balance of people who like you and people who don’t like you to be interesting on a show like this and only Teresa has that balance. Love her or hate her or love to hate her people watch her.

          CAP – I think it’s nice that you are thinking of the children . I know there’s a leg joke there somewhere, but I digress…I wouldn’t even try to get the kids together at this point. They have other friends. That bridge has been burned. Just because someone is your blood doesn’t mean they are the best choice for you. This might not be the best thing for the children from either family. The grownups made their choices and now there are consequences. When the girls get older and can get together without their mothers being around to poison the well, then that would be cool if the kids can reach out to each other.

      Thank you Luv.

      T & her family having a show would have been ideal but they ALL blew it. I could see T, Mel & Kathy having a show where they cook, show fashion, hair & make-up & do things w/the little kids. I’ve never seen a show where there were cousins & in-laws like that. They could’ve been on HGTV, The Food Network, Style Network, DIY. With their different strengths I think it could’ve been a success. Envey, jealousy & competition is what has torn their families apart. When their kids get older and if they don’t have a relationship I blame all of them.

    • disgrazia4 says:

      LOL LMG, you know the ladies in my family, we have always used that word in fun and jest with each other and with chiding the children playfully. Only with this bunch can they turn everything sour.

      • LuvMyGals says:

        Oh… now I get it. That could be fun! I have to find out the good bitch Polish word and start a tradition in my family. 🙂

        • disgrazia4 says:

          LOL. I don’t know if it’s normally fun but we are a weird bunch..but more fun than that Jersey crew!

  14. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Last night on WWH-Andy asked NeNe a question I tweeted – granted the question was stupid but it was fun anyway!!!

  15. Kat from Ohio says:

    i want to point out that as someone involved with friends who do drag, when a drag queen is in costume, you should refer to the drag queen with feminine pronouns. so in future blogs it would be more respectful to call Elaine Lancaster “she” or “her.” If we see her out of drag, then go with her given name or masculine pronouns. Sorry, but these things are a big deal to me! If someone else remarked on this further up the blog, forgive me.

    • Kat from Ohio says:

      only really remarking because i heard we will be seeing a lot more of Elaine this season (looks like she has a blow out with Mama Elsa). It really bothered me when Marysol kept calling her “he,” which might have been VERY intentional to diss Elaine. If so, not cool.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        I’m glad you cleared that up because I personally never knew, and probably Marysol didn’t either. To me, I always figured a man is a man, regardless of what they are wearing, so I probably would have referred to Elaine as “he” as well.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I never knew that either, and I appreciate the information as well. I now know not to make that mistake in the future.

    • Powell says:

      Kat that is what I thought so I referred to Elaine in my comment saying “her”. 🙂

    Hey NMD….can you get my mardrag26 comments out of moderation? 😦 Thanks love!!!!!

  17. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I admit I got a little chuckle when Teresa responded to the allegation that she twisted Melissa’s arm at her daughter’s birthday party, she called her Melissa Marco.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      If Teresa would have twisted Melissa’s arm, Melissa would have had “bruise-type” makeup applied by her nasty makeup artist to her arm either to create a bruise or make any type of bruise inflicted by Teresa look MUCH worse.

      She would have then tweeted madly about it with several Instagram pics.

      She would have then also scheduled an interview (or 2 or 3) where she talked at length about Teresa’s physical abuse of her and made sure to have pictures taken of her looking sad and hurt and dismayed.

      Teresa did not even TOUCH Melissa’s LYING ass!!

      IMO, Teresa SHOULD have called Melissa outside where there were absolutely NO eyewitnesses and KNOCKED HER THE EFF OUT and then claimed she had no idea what happened once the police and ambulance arrived (Or she should have rushed Melissa over to the hospital HERSELF speeding the whole way so she could seem ultra-concerned about how her baby sister-in-law somehow fell and knocked herself unconscious).

      Teresa should have then given interviews and gotten on the stand in Court saying that she had no idea why the sister-in-law she “loved so much” would try to lie and set her up like this. After all, Teresa IS a MOTHER with 4 children. Why would Melissa want to hurt her and her 4 children this way by making such a false and damning accusation (basically pull the same sh*t Melissa is right now pulling during this whole “Teresa Set Me Up” campaign/tour she is presently on. The “I’m a MOTHER! How could Teresa try to do this to me?” Melissa IS a MOTHER all right — a motherF*CKER if you ask me. *Shrug*.).

  18. RealHousewifeVA says:

    Oh just saw on teresagiudice.com she posted all the texts between her and Jac.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Oh and Jac is PSYCHO!

    • Kat from Ohio says:

      OH MY GOD. i cannot believe those nasty text messages from Jacqueline. And to honestly suggest that Gabriella isn’t a Giudice? Sick. I hate Jacqueline officially now.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Seriously, they can talk and talk about Teresa having mental issues (and maybe she does) but I seriously think Jac does as well. She sounds like a crazy person, and Teresa keeps asking her what she’s talking about but once again she won’t say. Also, now I see why she stayed good with Kim D., she wanted to make sure Kim wouldn’t clear Teresa of any involvement in the set up. No wonder Jac and Caroline are still ‘buddies’ with her.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She is as crazy on TEXTING as she is on TWITTER…someone needs to hide her phone!!!

          • Lulu says:

            She needs to learn that wine and texting just don’t mix! It’s really sad and pathetic. BTW who’s watching Nicholas while she is doing this?

          • Powell says:

            She’ll just go buy another one. I would say lock her in the closet but her boys need her.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Wait a minute!! That crazy bitch actually suggested that Gabriella is not a Giudice??!!

        O to the M to the mother-effin’ G!!!

        I’ve got to go to Teresa’s website right now to see this mess in order to BELIEVE it!!! (Gabriella looks EXACTLY like Joe’s MOTHER, by the way??!!).

        How DARE Jac say something like that?!?!

        • JenninFL says:

          I can’t believe she would even suggest that!! I agree that Gabriella looks just like Joe’s mom! She is nuts!!!!

    • melthehound says:

      Jacqueline Laurita can Seriously go f*ck herself. What a Tuesday.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Jac is now on twitter claiming she is going to post awful things Teresa said. Methinks she’s going to get fancy with Photoshop or else she would have posted all that stuff the other day when she was posting texts. lol

        • mkvalle says:

          Fancy with photoshop…just like Teresa’s team did. Curious that Jac’s name isn’t on the top. I would think she’d still have the number in her phone because we all know she doesn’t have the brain capacity to hold numbers in her head

          • PJ says:

            Oh please.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Jac is not denying the text messages are from her so I dont think photoshop was involved here

          • Exit4 says:

            Oh come on! Jac Laurita is truly nuts and “stupid” Teresa just threw down the gauntlet for her to prove it.

          • RealhouseWifeva says:

            Jac is admitting the texts are from her, lol. She’s just claiming Teresa said mean things, too. But she doesn’t say when Teresa said the mean things…hmmm

            • PJ says:

              Jac always has proof that never materializes. Interesting how Jac only posted part of her texts to Tre, the parts that made her not look so crazy and mean. I think Jac has some pretty serious mental health issues, just my opinion.

              • RealhouseWifeva says:

                I said yesterday it was strange how jac’s pics of the texts were so close up…on iPhone you have to purposely zoom in to do that, she didn’t want the rest to show. Don’t play with fire Jac, or you will get burned.

                • mkvalle says:

                  Maybe she just uses a large font so she doesn’t need glasses to read. I should do that myself!

                  • PJ says:

                    You can change iphone font to larger, even with that taken into account those texts had been zoomed in on. I use the large font myself.

          • RealhouseWifeva says:

            Also, my, I think Teresa deleted jac’s number since she doesn’t contact Jac first.

          • mkvalle says:

            I don’t really believe all that I write in my replies, I just like to “stir the pot”, play the devil’s advocate. I personally think all the Jersey ladies are liars. They all cry and pout about family being important, yada, yada. Actions prove larger, they don’t care about each other much, they like the money and the exposure. All of them. I’m embarrassed for them.

            • mkvalle says:

              And I do find them all entertaining to a degree. Love to love the sweet ones (none of those on NJ) and love to hate the evil ones (take your pick)

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I agree, they ALL lie.
                I know most folks don’t like the gang pile on Teresa but that doesn’t mean that many of us also don’t think she lies (at least some of the time) . I am sure Teresa in her mind thinks she writes her own blogs, because she copies and pastes what the ‘ghost writer’ said so she thinks it came from her own hand.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I said a long time ago that Teresa was NOT writing her own blogs.

                  I mean, for a long time now, after I read Teresa’s blog, and I find it impressive, I always say something like, “Teresa’s blog writer knocked it outta the park” OR “Teresa’s blog writer deserves to be paid very well.”

                  I also said a long time ago that I did not give a damn because she/her team is smart enough to know that she needs help with that. So, she got it.

                  She needs to stop lying about it, though.

                  And Melissa needs to stop criticizing Teresa for it because, just like Teresa does not write her blog, Melissa does NOT sing. Instead she is AUTO-TUNED to death.

                  Teresa has a GHOSTWRITER.

                  Melissa has AUTOTUNE.

                  What’s the damned difference? It’s still the same in principle if you ask me.

                  • disgrazia4 says:

                    Amen. That’s the truth.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    Exactly, I don’t care anymore than Teresa has a ghost writer anymore than if Melissa was a stripper.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Preach, Detox!!!!

                    • Called A Princess... says:

                      To me a blog is more like a speech or a PR statement. Singing is more about an artistic expression. It is not that Melissa can not sing, it is that she has not worked at it long enough to be a real recording artist, particularly for her age. I think that Teresa may feel that she is betraying herself if she admits to any help from anyone else. She already feels isolated from her family. IMO.

      • contessa says:

        I really feel for that little boy, he is the one who needs help and assistance and he has a crazy ass alcoholic mom. I certainly hope Chris steps in and figures out how crazy his wife really is. Those emails are off the wall. Good for Tre for publishing them. Jaq has been doing this for a long time – publishing, now let’s see what drunken fantasy this poor woman will spin.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I feel for poor Nicholas as well. Jac has been on a psychotic, obsessive-compulsive twitter-bash Teresa campaign for months and months now.

          And, unbeknownst to us, the whole time she’s been acting like a teenaged lunatic on twitter, she has an autistic child that needs her FULL AND UNDIVIDED attention.

          Why hasn’t Chris gotten her some help and gotten her to stop that behavior?

          Why hasn’t even Caroline tried to get Jac to stop because it is making Jac (and the rest of them by association) look LOONY, AND it is weakening their whole “TERESA IS THE ONLY AWFUL, SICK PERSON IN THIS WHOLE GROUP” Campaign?

          On top of that, WHY, if you consider a person “scum” and so awful and so beneath you, do you constantly obsess over them and keep their name in your mouth?

          I think Jac, based on her Mother Bonnie’s strange and crazy behavior and Ashley’s strange behavior, possibly has a genetic predisposition to mental illness.

          I ALSO think that one thing that is driving Jac a bit CRAZY — even though she would NEVER admit it in a MILLION years — is extreme GUILT over the way she has f*cked Teresa over. JMHO.

          There is no way Jac and the rest of them would have been friends with Teresa for 10 years or more if she was as awful as they try to portray her.

          Also, the MINUTE Teresa’s apology article went out in that magazine, Jac IMMEDIATELY tweeted Teresa to call her and told her how she wanted to be “Lucy & Ethel” with Teresa again.

          So, Teresa called, but, because she probably did not say, “O.K. No Biggie. Let’s just brush everything you have said and done to and about me during this past season and since the Reunion on Twitter and other places and be BFF’s again JUST LIKE THAT!!”, Jac then IMMEDIATELY went to Twitter after she hung up with Teresa and started bashing her again (even though Teresa did not respond in kind).

          Jac was so quick to tell Teresa to call her because there is a part of her that MISSES Teresa and KNOWS that Teresa WAS a good friend to her for SEVERAL years.

          I think her GUILT (along with all of the other stresssors in her life) are slowly driving Jac insane. I also think there is possibly a substance abuse issue that is contributing to her mental decline and psychotic behavior.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            It was a little sad to me to see Jac out in the street talking to Mego about over hearing that Teresa was involved in the set up. Jac’s had the choice to stay out of it and she put herself right in the middle of the story which gave Caroline a reason get involved in the lie. I could not be friends with any of these people, too difficult and shady. They truly remind me of a human jungle. IMO.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Just read them. I think they both have issues. Who goes from accusations to accepting love/kisses? And on the flip side who goes from being on the receiving end of accusations and offers kisses etc? That’s just a little fishy to me. I’m not saying they were altered; however, there is admitted editing to make one picture. With that IMO the validity goes down a bit. I get blacking out names, but she could have put an end to suspicion with screen shots from her phone and several images. Just my two cents, but either way both have issues IMO.

      • PJ says:

        All I can say is that if they both have issues Jac’s issues clearly show in her texts and Twitter, Tre’s don’t.

        • SoutheastVA says:

          Jac’s comments don’t make sense because Tre isnt showing her responses in the string of texts.

          • PJ says:

            I don’t agree. I think Tre doesn’t reply often.

          • Exit4 says:

            I text strings like that, where I get texts from someone over the course of weeks or months that all belong to them and maybe I reply a few times. Some people text like gangbusters every little thing. If someone outside read them, they wouldn’t get it. But I do because I know the context.

      • NightLight95 says:

        The problem with reading texts, emails etc. is that you can’t give it the emotion it was intended with. She could of texted kisses and it was FU. who knows. But where she questions the boys paternity does stand on it’s own.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          what boys paternity was questioned? Jac insinuated that Gabriella looked like an ex boy friend of Teresa’s.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            Jac also refers to Joey’s son – so that would mean Joey Gorga because Joe Guidice doesn’t have a son. She wants the reader to think that Melissa fooled around and one of their son’s is not her husband’s! Sick she is and stable she is not.

  19. shamrockblonde says:

    I did not see RHOM – the commercial with that drunk woman screaming like a lunatic was enough for me not to watch it – as for the New Jersey jerks – I have to say this – there was a time – probably the first season, when I actually liked Caroline – her kids seemed well adjusted, she seemed to have control of herself in a circle of loons, so I liked her – it has been painful for me to watch her devolve into this bitter resentful person – I hope she is gone along with her children and her husband, although oddly, he is probably the only one out of all of them that I can tolerate for any length of time – oh – and Kathy – teach your daughter to do the laundry – and then make sure she does it – not you – enough with the babying – and please – invest in duct tape for your idiot husband’s mouth – please – please – please

    thanks so much for the project runway recap – totally forgot it – I was watching Big Bang, Last Resort and then Elementary – all really good shows – I like Heidi’s line of children’s clothes – hopefully I will be able to catch the episode over the weekend!!

    *hugs Mardrag really hard* – that is great news!!!! – all of us already know what a bright ray of light you are in this world, and I cannot wait until more people get the chance to soak up your courage and grace – sometimes I think of this place as a giant net, like the kind that is underneath a high wire act – when one of us is up on that high wire if we should fall – the net – all of us – is right there to break the fall and help us bounce back up again – thank you Lynn for making the net, and thank you all for keeping that net strong with laughter, love and support – YAY Mardrag!!!!!!

    as for people in the delivery room – I did not want to be in the delivery room – no way I wanted anyone else in there either!

    my love to you all!!

    • 2Stupid says:

      I guess I was a big Baby having a baby. I wanted my sister in with me, because I was scared to death and wanted someone I could trust to help me. I mean the only reason my husband was there is because he felt like he needed to be, trust me, he really didn’t want to be. The ironic thing is, now my sister and my husband have more experience as to what child birth is like, than I do. After and epidural, I didn’t feel a thing and you don’t really see much from where you are. The next birth, I was comfortable just having my husban traumatized. From what they tell me, it isn’t for the faint of heart- I wouldn’t know- LOL!

    • Beautiful words shamrock, thank you! Hugging you back really hard!

  20. AZGirl says:

    Watched Miami last night and I do agree that they are the hottest wives of Bravo. I just have a gross reaction to the fake boobs that you can see the veins with. The skin is so stretched that the boobs are almost blue.
    Sloppy drunk is for teenagers and college kids not 30 year olds. Nothing worse than sloppy drunk.
    As for Teresa I just don’t get why all the hate. Even after a year’s passing these women are that upset at whatever went down (we don’t know really what happened) at the PFS? Who cares about Mel and stripping? I don’t. Unless the stories about Teresa and Mel getting physical are true I just don’t see what Teresa has done to warrant the ganging up on her. Even Anderson Cooper is on her ass what the heck is that about?

    • Nancy says:

      Teresa became successful. End of story. I really think that’s the issue.

      She sure didn’t do them any favors.

    • Winston says:

      The whole debacle about if Teresa reached out to Jac when her son was diagnosed with autism is ridiculous! They are acting as if Teresa gave him autism and should be out finding a cure!

      • PJ says:

        Jac should be home focusing on her son not on Twitter, texting or on a reality TV show. Jac needs to leave Tre alone and stop with the baseless accusations..

        • Winston says:

          I agree. Those text messages on Teresa’s website from Jacqueline are crazy but not surprising coming from Jac. I think I would block her number if I were Teresa, imagine how nutso Jac would go on twitter when she discovered that. I sure hope Teresa sees the crazy that Jac is and moves on and far away from her.

    • Your comment about fake boobs is spot on!!! The veins are SO gross!!! I think that happens when the implant is too big for the person’s frame/skin. Just because skin is elastic doesn’t mean you should shove the biggest implants you can find under that skin!!

      • JenninFL says:

        Agree! Some of the housewives implants literally look like they are trying to escape their bodies. It looks so painful!

    Whacko Jaq claims in an earlier tweet that Joey son does not look like him. That is low but who cares what Teresa has to say about anything. Personally, they all need to shut up. Especially, Lauren.

    • PJ says:

      That was really low but not unexpected or surprising considering it was coming from Jac.

    • PJ says:

      No wait I guess I didn’t read your post properly. Jac was saying that Gabriella looks like Tre’s ex and not like Joe. It wasn’t about Mel and Joey.

      • Orson says:

        I’ll go as far as saying that Gabriella is a pretty little girl who looks nothing like her sisters Gia and Melania, who look very much to me like Teresa does in childhood photos of her. Who knows what the children in JoGu’s family looked like?

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Precious little girls, Yes, Gabriella is so pretty. JoeGui and Tre hit the jackpot in the cute kid department. They are all little dollbabies.

        • PJ says:

          But that doesn’t mean she isn’t the child of Joe. I have first cousins who are twins and look nothing alike one is blond and one has really dark brown hair, they have the same parents but one looks like his mother one looks like his father. Jac was insinuating something very despicable, and that says a lot about who Jac is. Jac can cry Teresa is mean all she wants but look at Jac’s texts and tweets and tell me who is mean. JMO.

      • AZGirl says:

        I saw that tweet but there is another Jac sent saying that Tre said that Joey’s son did not look like him.

        • PJ says:

          Is there any text where Jac can prove that or is it another one of these things we just have to take Jac’s word for? Because I don’t believe anything Jac says.

  23. Exit4 says:

    It took roughly 4 seconds for the rabid Teresa haters to cry photo shop. I think that’s a record! I’m glad someone too stupid to remember a phone number is able to create a whole string of faked text messages. Instead of writing-oops I mean ghostwriting-books she should be in special ops. She’s like a sparkly, over done version of Mata Hari.

    Jac really has problems. She really does. I imagine her racing around her house, pulling up her emails, queing up her “recordings” and frantically taking screen shots if every text message she ever got. Maybe she’ll even show us the secret ones from the PFS. Because you know she saved them on her hard drive in a special folder called “Bring Teresa Down Evidence”.

    Because you see, no one cares about the fashion show or the “set up”. No one cares if Teresa had a part in it really, since most people figure she did. Only the “Brooke Shields” fans care. But the crazier Jac gets, the worse she looks. The more she frantically tweets and posts her evidence, the more people will be turned off, because it’s petty and weird. And even if teresa sent a nasty reply to her, I imagine in would be in response to a crazy Jac text. Like the one she sent last year with a pic of her husband that showed up online the next day. People understand reacting to someone in anger. They don’t get, or at least slightly suspicious of people who try to prove someone is bad. Simply b/c you may be next on the list. I imagine the extraneous people that getting dragged through the mud due to her lack of control aren’t going to be happy and may retaliate on their own. Teresa knows what she’s doing.

    Jac Laurita is like a high school girlfriend who gave her virginity to the captain of the football team and can’t handle the fact he A) told the whole team and B) won’t talk to her. Now she’s hanging out by his locker, crying and telling everyone he has a small penis, which only confirms she’s seen him naked.

    I’m sure Melissa will be next on the parade with this. Surely she doesn’t want to be left out of the attention! And it will ultimately backfire on her too. Because she will only be doing it to insert herself and people will see through it.

    (Oh and the “Brooke Shields” reference is from an old episode of Friends. She played a woman who thought Dr. Drake Ramore was a real person. )

    • AZGirl says:

      HA! Excellent post!!! We all knew this girl in high school,

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I knew girls like this in college.

        One particular acquaintance of mind had a years-long crush and eventual 1 or 2-year relationship with this guy she was C-R-A-Z-Y about. They eventually broke up, and she would bitch about “him and his LITTLE DICK!!!”

        I just figured she was being a hater and lying because he’d dumped her. I mean, why would she have been so crazy about him and stayed with him for 1 or 2 years if she were telling the truth (I later figured out it was because he was going to school to become a dentist, and she was materialistic).

        YEARS later, I ended up dating him for a VERY short time. It turns out that she was NOT lying — which is why I ended the relationship VERY quickly. Why waste time when you’re really not all that “into” the person in the first place? I left his apartment and, thanks to caller i.d. — that had JUST come out, this was the 90’s — was saved for several months from having to talk on the phone to him and explain my disappearance. I know that was immature of me, but I was in my 20’s.

        I’ve matured since then. 😀

        He eventually saw me out in public and read me the riot act before I gave him this big speech about how it was all MY fault because I was emotionally damaged from my prior relationship, and it had absolutely NOTHING to do with him. I also told him that I felt like he was simply TOO GOOD for me because I was just SUCH AN EMOTIONAL MESS at that time.

        In other words, I lied my ass off so as not to seem like an awful, shallow person (who also happens to be a bit of a Size Queen) and to keep his self-esteem intact.

        I should have listened to that acquaintance in college. That experience was a whole 15 minutes of my life I will NEVER get back. I would’ve been better off staying home in my P.J.’s and eating a gallon of ice cream while I watched the boob tube. I wasted my makeup, shaved legs, bikini wax, hair appointment and nice outfit and super-sexy matching bra and panty set on THAT tragedy! *Sigh*

I’m just trying to power my way through it and only take Lortabs in the morning if needed (just in case this pain goes on for 30 days. I have no refills on that prescription). I have been taking that prescription ibuprofen 3x a day as recommended, though.

            My body is betraying me as I get older. *Sigh* Other people have it MUCH worse, though. So, I’m counting my blessings.

    ***DISCLAIMER: The following rant in no way reflects how I feel about the commentors who comment on NJ or the blog itself, I absolutely love it here.***

    I am SICK & TIRED of RHNJ. I am completely over it. After these two seasons, what do we have, a bunch of liars. They all lie about big and small stuff. I can’t believe anything ANY OF THEM say so what do I want to keep watching them for each week. I am willing to suspend belief (makes no sense for something called a REALITY show, I know) for recreating scenes that actually happened if no cameras caught it and it actually turns out to be interesting. But all of this she said / she said stuff is too much already. If I believe they all lie and we have actually caught them in some lie at one time or another, then I don’t believe anything they say in accusation of someone else. Besides that, none of them are truly candid in their stories. Even if there is a measure of truth in what they are saying, there are bits they’ve left out about their own involvement in the issue. Also I’m sick of all the insiders coming out of the woodworks to defend this side or that side cause they turn out to be lying or not telling the whole truth either. Also the articles in magazines and websites (not this one cause I see stories posted from both sides) that are one sided on either side I can’t trust either.

    Now about the issue of the gang up, sure it sucks but I’m over that too. For instance if all of them lie, cheat, steal or whatever then they have no business accusing the others of doing it but I don’t think I have to list everyone’s faults every time I make an observation about one of them. I’m not doing the bad stuff I see them doing so I feel like if a scene is dealing with one of them, I should be able to comment on what they are doing without having to also list all the offenses of the others. I say that, not to talk only talk about my comments here, I mean comments to my mom, to myself, to the t.v. (yes I do that lol). If I feel the need to stick up for any of them cause of the gang up it just gets tiring. I don’t know if that makes sense.

    The other day I had an interesting exchange with PJ about how we couldn’t try Teresa on our opinion of what she may have been guilty of in the fraud case. It allowed me to see another perspective and so if I agree that people should only be tried based on fact and not opinion, that means I have to give up the thought of how guilty the others are of saying they’d take Teresa down in their audition tape. We haven’t seen the tape or any real proof of the tape so their behavior that suggests they’d make one should no longer sway me to believe they made one, you know. So then what would I have to be so angry about?

    I don’t want any of these people to come back. They all should go home and stay there off of my tv. If they tried to bring in people to gang up on Melissa that wouldn’t solve anything. We’d have to apply the principle we have with not wanting to see it done to Teresa, to Melissa or else we’d be hypocrites right? I don’t want to be a hypocrite and I don’t want to defend these people either so only solution for me is to not see them anymore.

    Thanks for allowing this impossibly long rant. Hope everyone has a great day.

    • PJ says:

      Stella in the end it is just a TV show. But the people are real and families are being torn apart for real. I have to ask myself how are we different from those who watched gladiators in the ancient Roman era? Albeit no one is being physically killed but this is really ugly and to me it is not entertaining. We are watching a gang of bullies, ugly, nasty bullies.

      As for the audition tape I have heard that the Gorga’s did really say that and that there are probably clips of that audition tape on line, although I have not looked for them. It may have been AC who said it but I can’t remember for sure where I heard it from. Maybe someone else remembers.

      If this show goes on there will continue to be gang ups.

      I do understand why you are through I actually feel exactly the same. I won’t be watching anymore unless there is a really big shake up of the cast.

      • Exit4 says:

        Jac, during a twitter rant admitted it existed. It was awhile ago. I’d love for bravo to do a list footage ro with it included! As well as other scenes that she’s she’d some light on the crazy. I’m sure Angelo isn’t the only one to forget he we miced…

        • stellastars21 says:

          Oh I didn’t know she did that. However just based on the comments above throughout today’s blogs about how wacky Jac is and unstable, a liar, a psycho, and a drunk, I’m not gonna call her comment proof, regardless of who’s side she was on when she said it. I’m not saying she doesn’t truly know it exists but how can I take her word on something and exclude her word on everything else, you know. I mean she says a lot of things that are anti-Teresa during twitter rants, should I believe that too?

          • PJ says:

            I think someone else also admitted the audition tape did exist just can’t remember who but I’m thinking AC.

            • stellastars21 says:

              ooh didn’t know that. Something like that existing is pretty bad. I must say though that I’ve known of my own family members doing even worse things. Hey Andy, where’s my show. Haha I’m just kidding I wouldn’t want to be on a show with my family the way that they behave. I gotta say that I’d probably have a sour face like Caroline most of the time with my family cause I have no poker face so I couldn’t hide that I really don’t like certain family members for what they’ve done.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              On the famewhorega’s site , the insider who claims to have worked for Bravo said there was such a tape and Melissa did say she would take Teresa down but that her voice was more playful than vengeful sounding.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            So Stellastars, basically what you’re saying (in a nutshell) is that you’re breaking up with RHofNJ?

          • Exit4 says:

            She was on team Gorga when she said it. She alluded that it is funny.

    • Powell says:

      Stella I loved your rant. 🙂 I don’t want to see them either. I really want Bravo to cancel NJ if they don’t get a whole new cast. And you’re right. I don’t want them to bring someone in to gang up on Mel cause that’s the same old thing. Just another person for Caroline to hate because that person/people would like T. I also feel anyone else in their circle would probably have financial issues of some kind & I’m really over that throughout the franchise.

      • stellastars21 says:

        Thanks. And you’re right whoever joined from their circle of friends would probably have financial issues too.

    • Putchka says:

      Tee hee Stella, come here and rant anytime you want! As an adult woman, I abhor their I’m “bullied” rants. Like the kooks Kelly and Aviva. Ooh, so mean and nasty, they hurt my FEELINGS. Yeah, I was “bullied” as a kid occasionally, who wasn’t? Get over it man. When you’re bullied at 40+ years old, it’s your problem, not the “Bully”.

  25. PJ says:

    I never liked Kathy but if she really said what is reported that she said about Tre’s mother then she is a disgrace herself; it will prove to me that she is exactly the way I thought she was and her whole nice act was indeed just an act.

  26. NightLight95 says:

    Jax son has autism and she is arguing about texts? I feel sorry for Nicholas, he has a poor excuse of a mother and of a father if he doesn’t put a stop to this nonsense. Jax failed her daughter and then kicked her out. What is she going to do with with Nicholas? She is so busy fighting when she should be tending to her son. I suppose her middle child will have to take care of him. Sad!

    • Winston says:

      Can you imagine what she is like in real life if this is what she acts like on twitter and in her blogs. Could you blame Chris if he left her.

      • NightLight95 says:

        I just feel bad for her two boys. Jax and Chris are adults, but those two boys? I don’t know about autism but I do remember Jenny McCarthy when she first announced her son had it. This is not a cold. It’s a life changing. But Jax instead fights with Tre and drinks. Those children are not being properly supported.

    • Powell says:

      Nightlife I wish Chris would forbid her from texting and tweeting. I don’t think spouses should forbid each other from doing things but I think this is an exception.

      • NightLight95 says:

        I agree Jax is an adult and Chris shouldn’t have to forbid her from anything. I am thinking Jax has displaced anger. (HA! displaced anger and bully are two words that are used on RH a lot lately.) Jax is taking out her frustration on Tre for things that went wrong in her life. Her daughter, her son, whatever is going on with her financially. She admitted as much, that she’s depressed. Then there is Tre in spite of everything that she is going through, doesn’t SEEM to crack. On top of that Tre’s daughters are all healthy. Yeah, Jax has misplaced anger.

        • Powell says:

          Misplaced anger? Yeah. I see that. Jac’s going thru hell & is depressed. Tre was/is going thru hell & she smiles thru it. Jac could be thinking how come Tre can smile thru it all. It’s not fair.

      • powell…. I agree with you.. I think and really feel that the Laurita family and Jacs parents need to do an intervention NOW !!!!! I have an internal bad feeling that this is not going to end well …… As much as I dont care for any of the players…. I am wrapping Jac in a white light ..She needs HELP quickly…..

        Hugs and Peace

    • Sam says:

      I’ve always thought her parenting skills were extremely weak, and her ranting when should be caring for her son sure proves it.

    • PJ says:

      I never liked how Jac treated Ashley. I know Ashley was a lot to deal with but I saw things that Jac did that I felt were abusive that’s just my opinion but it was the feeling I got watching her interaction with Ashley—–however they spell it.

  27. Powell says:

    I haven’t read thru all the comments. Vicki tweeted Troy Williamulberson 7lbs 11 oz 20 inc.

    • Powell says:

      Jac should be attending this event. Instead she’s on Twitter. 😦

      • NightLight95 says:

        I teared up reading the article. The little boy was affectionate because their parents were in his face loving him.

        • Nancy says:

          Thanks for posting that. My cousin lives in Canada and his son is autistic.

          • NightLight95 says:

            Both of my boys are dyslexic and let me tell you I know all that there is to know about it, I made sure my children had all the resources available to them even when I was a single mother. My oldest graduate top 5% of his class and my youngest is on track to beat that. I can’t even imagine how overwhelming autism can be to a parent. But I know I wouldn’t waste my time on twitter fighting. My ex wasn’t paying child support much less tuition for dyslexia or music classes that helped, NOTHING. Jax is a bad mother.

            • Nancy says:

              What kind of music classes did they take? I’m very interested in that field.
              How great that you were there for your sons. I feel sorry for your ex.

              • NightLight95 says:

                Different music instruments: trumpet, piano, flute. This was to help transfer reading music sheets over to regular reading material. Also, they use a clear translucent sheet. Depending on how their vision, the color makes their reading easier. They had to learn to take their time speaking because their words would get all jumbled up. There all kinds of dyslexia so there is a lot of testing to find out where they need help. My way of explaining it to them was: most people are right handed and they make everything with them in mind. It’s how they learn and absorb things that is different but they have very high IQ’s.

                • MamaZ says:

                  NightLight – Congrats on your sons academic success! They didn’t acheive that on their own. You are a great mom.

                • Nancy says:

                  I think that’s great. Music is really helpful with post-op patients as well.
                  Hopefully they will continue with their music to really learn the instrument. 🙂

              • Powell says:

                I don’t hardly feel sorry for Nightlife’s ex. He missed out. He doesn’t get any of the applause since he didn’t participate in providing what they needed. I hope I didn’t overstep Nightlife.

            • Powell says:

              Nightlife that’s fantastic your boys are doing so well thanks to their terrific mom fighting for them. There are so many famous people, multi-millionaires that are dyslexic. You’ve scouted out all the tools they’ll need to succeed. Hurray for you!!!! I hope you congratulated yourself along w/your boys cause it’s your success too. 🙂

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              You go NightLight….you are a Mom who ROCKS!!! Nothing like taking the bull by the horns, digging in and educating YOURSELF about any problem that comes up for your children. The best way to help is to know HOW to help. And how to help does not mean Tweeting all damn day about crap that really means nothing!!!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Nightlife, I totally agree with your last sentence. It is great to read your real life success story. You must be so proud of your kids. And they must be or WILL BE very proud of you, too. Without a doubt. I wonder if Ashley is proud of Jac.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I am also dyslexic ( I am sure some of you might have guessed by now). I think you are awesome xox

  28. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Teresa added this to the end of her blog on her web site…I dont know if Im allowed to copy and paste from her web site-so please delete if need be.

    I am NOT trying to keep this going, only end it– that’s why I posted the ENTIRE thing, all texts from her and me since April, so it would just be done. No teasing, no bits, just done. Sorry it looks like the texts are choppy but I had to take pics of them on my phone and then email them to myself and cut her phone number off the top of every screen. I didn’t leave anything out. It’s a huge one-sided conversation Jac is having with herself and it doesn’t make sense to me either. I just wanted to clear up that I’m not suing, I didn’t say she was “threatening” me, I want my fans to stay drama-free and fabulous, and that I wish everyone the best. To me that’s honest and mature. Sorry if you disagree. xx

  29. MamaZ says:

    Good afternoon all. I just caught up and read Jaq’s texts to Teresa. I have to say I think they are a little scary. Her hatred of Teresa is out of proportion for the things she accuses Teresa of even if they were all true.

    I think her real reason for hating Teresa is that Nicholas has autism and Audrianna does not. I have seen this before. Two children of friends born within weeks of each other. One child developes on schedule, the other sadly is diagnosed with a disorder.

    Jaq and Teresa were very close. They joked about Nicholas and Audrianna being boyfriend and girlfriend. They planned on raising these two children side by side. I believe that Jaq thought she was not only losing the dreams she had for her youngest child but her best friend as well as
    Teresa was becoming more and more succesful and famous. Chris Laurita’s business went belly up. Teresa had less time for Jaq at the time Jaq needed her the most. Not necessarily because Teresa wanted it that way but because she had signings and appearances to do. Like Bethenny when Bawby had his cancer scare.

    Jaq’s rage toward Teresa seems similar to Aviva’s anger at Ramona. And I think Ramona had a point when she said it was misplaced anger. Jaq’s heart is broken and if she can’t share the good times with Teresa, can’t share the typical childhood milestones she is going to make sure they share the pain.

    I think Teresa needs therapy to come to terms with her son’s disorder. I don’t mane that in a snarky way.

    • contessa says:

      Great points Mama Z. I think that Jaq does drink and that fuels her issues with everything. Heck she tweets at 1 AM in the morning??? I feel for Jaq about Nicholas, as that is a tough thing for a parent and she wanted that child so much, but she needs to get therapy big time, like you indicated above. I would also add her guilt about the way she raised Ashley to the pot as well.

      • MamaZ says:

        Hi Contessa. What is she doing up that late anyway? When my kids were small I was lucky to make it past the 11 o’clock news. I had put in a full day of parenting and had to be prepared for the same again bright and early the next day.

    • Powell says:

      You brought up some things that make you go hmmm.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      You make excellent points, MamaZ. After I found about Nicholas’ diagnosis, I said that I thought some of Jac’s anger toward Teresa had to be displaced anger because of her son’s diagnosis.

      Her family needs to get her some SERIOUS help. Caroline needs to stop worrying about controlling Jac and her friendships and, instead, be a loving family member and convince her to get help. All of those Manzo’s and Laurita’s need to shut up about Teresa and focus on their OWN backyards and problems and getting the help THEY all need, IMO.

    • Putchka says:

      I agree on most of your points, Mama. I don’t twit or twat or whatever but rage and hatred are different from anger. Face it, we’re not dealing with the next Einstein here (except Gia). Jeez. These people are sad. I hope the money they made was worth it….

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I agree with you, MamaZ. At the risk of being thought judgmental, she obviously has not, yet, come to terms with her baby boy. There is a period of denial, anger, grief (this is very real, like you said many dreams die with this diagnosis) finally after all that crap is done with, then you can experience acceptance and dream new dreams that are just as sweet. But they are different, that’s all. She is mired in anger and drama because the process I described is very painful; she seems to be stuck in denial unable/unwilling to venture into the next step. She may be saying it (that she accepts it), but she’s not living like she’s accepted it. Right now, it’s all about her. Your life, not just your daily living, but your thought life, your heart life… is supposed to change so that you can help your child. Hers hasn’t. (basing this on her many hours devoted to twitter rants about Teresa).

    • MamaZ says:

      She’s unbelievable! Teresa’s not the only one who can’t admit to any fault.
      And she thinks Bravo owes them the platform to shill all their crap because they give them thier lives? Uh, Bravo gives them a paycheck.
      Ugh.

    • Nancy says:

      She’s delusional.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I figured that out the first time I heard her sing.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          And the scene was soooooooooooooo fake.. Fade in….Man on bed with daughter, they hear singing in the near distance….”Amazing Grace”….Joey: Listen it ‘s your mommy singing! Father and child run to the walk-in closet: “Honey that was beeeeuteeeeful” Wife: “What? oh, I was singing? Oh you’re so sweet. You like it? Really?”

          Their producer buddy was doing some horrible directing that day, one of the most awkward scenes ever.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            ITA. Joey also acted like she had the voice of an angel while I was sitting on my couch laughing hysterically that she sang “WENCH” like me. I did not like Teresa at that time, and I was giving Melissa a chance. Even with that benefit of the doubt, however, I couldn’t even convince myself that she had any singing talent.

            I also thought, at that time, that Joe married a girl as dumb as his sister (“wench”???? I now think the term is appropriate for Melissa, though).

  30. ladyballs says:

    when i comment here, i do so based on behaviors and conversations i have seen on the shows. i do extrapolate. so i’m guilty of that. having said that…my extrapolations are based on words spoken by the person about whom i’m commenting. for me, it’s pointless to try to get into the mind of someone on tv because i do not know these people.

    bethenny said she never blamed editing for how she was portrayed on the show. she took responsibility for the words she spoke. she was called all kinds of nasty things by her castmates and, more often than not, she agreed with their opinions of herself.

    the new jersey cast put themselves on tv. no one held a gun to their heads. they are responsible for their actions and words on camera. they are not victims.

    they are big people in a big people world.

        funny and mean…but it’s kind of true. 😉

        • Nancy says:

          I agree. I can’t believe Caroline let Lauren bring index cards to test Teresa with at the reunion.
          What a great mom. Yuck!

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I can believe it.

            Instead of focusing on trying to make Teresa look stupid, Lauren needs to attend some continuing education-type makeup application classes because, from the looks of her makeup and Caroline’s makeup (and anyone ELSE who has the misfortune of being made up by her), she SUCKS at her job!

            And she will have the short-term satisfaction of gloating over making Teresa look stupid, but Teresa will have the long-term satisfaction of continuing to make money from her brand.

            People thought Teresa was dumb before, and, despite that, bought enough of her cookbooks to her make her a 3-time NY Times Best Seller. Companies also want her to endorse their products despite the fact that Teresa has a reputation as being “dumb.”

            Like Ray Charles said, “I play COUNTRY DUMB while I watch and make my money and know what is going on the whole time — even though people think I DON’T.”

            I predict LAZY-ASS LAPBAND LAUREN will re-gain her weight, continue to have a greasy “sheen” about her face and body, and eventually get Vito to marry her. Vito will then turn into Albert where he “works” like a dog just to avoid staying home with his bitter, sour, unpleasant wife! 😀

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I agree, I have also said that Lauren FN SUCKS at make up. I have two friends who are professionals and the are 1000x better than her. When you pay to get your make up done, you should leave with it looking like the way Melissa Gorga does when she has hers. Lauren’s looks like a very bad Sears catalog.

              Sometimes in life, we do get out shined by idiots. Take pretty much everyone on the Jersey Shore (with maybe the exception of Vinny, who while not dumb is a d-bag). It sucks….but it is what it is.

              But the viol that these other women go at her with (especially since two of them, used her NAME to get on the show) is just sickening to me.

            It doesn’t surprise me. It’s a mean stunt. Who else would do it? You know that saying that they have for grooms? – if you want to know what your wife will be like in the years ahead, look at her mother. Vito better wake up.

  40. WindyCityWondering says:

    Think Jac’s behavior will get worse next week after the reunion airs? Will she accuse Teresa of boiling and eating kittens? Will she finally show any of the tons of proof she has to back up all her slanderous rantings? She is making me nervous because she bounce between happy and hateful. Will someone finally step in and stop the madness?

    • Nancy says:

      WCW,
      It’s classic alcoholic behavior. IF Caroline was a good SIL she would get Jacq some help.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I have absolutely no proof, but I do have/have had alcoholic friends and family members. Jac’s behavior does strike me that way for some reason. I think there is also something going on in her head “chemically,” and she is using alcohol to self-medicate. JMHO. I could be wrong.

        • Nancy says:

          I agree with you. She is always drinking on the show. The tweets get crazier as the night goes on. You can see it in her face as she’s all puffy. We’ve seen her drunk
          in the afternoon during a business meeting. I’m an alcoholic so I know the signs.

          • Nancy says:

            (alcoholic in recovery that is. :))

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Good for you, Nancy!

              Jac does look like she is sporting “alcohol bloat.” She does often drink on the show (but, then again, so do many of the other housewives who I do NOT think are alcoholics. BRAVO encourages them to drink because it lowers their inhibitions and makes it more likely for them to act the fool and/or fight with each other).

              I think that Jac’s telling Teresa she wanted nothing more to do with her on the night of the Jac/Caroline “deck ambush” of Teresa and then, the very next time she saw Teresa, wondering why Teresa was avoiding her and not speaking to her and Jac stalking Teresa at the party to figure out why is because, IMO, at some point during the “deck ambush,” Jac had been drinking so much that she honestly blacked out and had no recollection of telling Teresa she needed to distance herself from Teresa for her own mental health. JMHO.

              • Nancy says:

                She’s blaming Teresa for all her problems. I feel sorry for Teresa. I’m glad she has
                a lot of fans. But of course they will take that out on her as well. She really can’t win
                in all of this.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Jax really needs to fn zip in regards to autism. I would NEVER take advice from some who didn’t do anything proactive for 8 months while they watched their child regress. While my child does not have that dx, her behaviors are on that spectrum (when she was younger, I could have gotten her that dx but I really didn’t see the point since she was already getting the various therapies she needed)

        Her positioning herself to be the next Jenny McCarthy really makes me want to PUKE.

  41. VV says:

    OMG! Between the Twitterfestos and Manifestos Jac does need help. She should quit the show and help herself those two little boys need her. Seriously!

    • VV says:

      Forgot the Textingfestos…

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Maybe it does not matter because he is so young and because filming is limited to only a few months a year, but my own experience with autism (Aspberger’s in my brother’s case) indicates that routine is VERY important to a child/person with autism. I also know that my brother (and some other autistic people) is extremely sensitive to loud noises. It would seem to me that filming and lights and camera crews and the possible chaos and erratic schedule (The exact opposite of ROUTINE) might not be good for little Nicholas.

      Then again, I’m pretty sure Jac and Chris need the money. So, I guess, like Teresa, they have to deal with the hand they have been dealt and the deal they made with the “Devil” BRAVO in order to do so.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Great comments, because they are based on first hand experience. I hope they do what’s best for the little guy.

        My temper is rising when it comes to Jac, I have already seen her exploit her now adult daughter for a story line…next up at bat is her ‘child….who is autistic’.

    Really O.T. I love Hillary Clinton, but who is advising her on how to wear her hair? I was looking at her photo in the paper today. She’s proof that after a certain point in life, it’s time to bob it.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      My Mom said the exact same thing you did the other day when Hillary was on television.

      I remember, once, Hillary went to some type of meeting with no makeup and with what looked like a potato-chip bag chip clip holding up part of her hair in some sort of weird combo of a half-up/half-down f*cked up semi-ponytail “hairdDON’T” (not a hairDO).

      Of course, when this pic was shown on E’s “The Fashion Police,” Joan Rivers literally screamed bloody murder like someone was literally stabbing her to death on set because she was SO horrified. She asked for water because she literally could not speak about the extent of the horrific nature of Hillary’s hair fashion “crime” until she got some.

      It was HIGH-larious!!

    I just HAVE to make a comment about the poll about Teresa. The majority here seem to think that she’s at least getting a bad rap this season even if they don’t like her. I’m sure Melissa’ et al read the blog. I wouldn’t put it past them to get anyone and everyone possible to come here and vote against Teresa. It just doesn’t seem to match what’s usually in the comments here. I’m just surprised “I dislike them all” or “I’m only on her side because I can’t stand the others” would have many more votes from this group. Just my two cents. Again, I haven’t gotten a chance to read the comments, I’m barely able to even read the blogs, so I apologize if it’s already been discussed. It just smells fishy and I’m not talking about Kathy… or maybe I am… partially anyway.
