Twitter, Texts, and Blog Wars Oh My! from the Real Housewives of New Jersey plus other Housewife News by NoMoreDrama

Before we get into the Jersey drama – a big congratulations to Brianna and Ryan Culberson!  Proud Grandmom (gulp) Vicki Gunvalson shared the happy news on twitter and her facebook page this morning:

“News everyone has been waiting for: Troy William Culberson was born a healthy 7 lbs, 11 ounces and 20 inches at 7:53 a.m. this morning! Thank you everyone for all your support! I’m a GRANDMA! Im so proud of Briana and Ryan. They will make amazing parents.”

Sonja Morgan from the Real Housewives of New York made the New York Post Page 6 for hosting Cat Ommanney’s book party in a club called The Vault Grill – which is inside the bank vault built in 1902 for J.P. Morgan, founded by Sonja’s ex husband John Adams Morgan’s great grandfather.

PerezHilton has reported the following for next year’s Real Housewives of New Jersey lineup.  It’s from another insider:

Jacqueline [Laurita] and Kathy [Wakile‎] were not made offers, so Jacqueline won’t be back but look for Kathy to return in a limited capacity. Currently three [new] women are under consideration to join the cast. Caroline Manzo was made an offer to return and declined — it is possible she is waiting for a bigger offer or has something up the pipelines. She had only participated in season 4 so that her children would get exposure for their business ventures.”  The article says that Teresa and Melissa will be returning.    When asked by a fan if she was returning for another season, Jacqueline tweeted “I was asked.We’ll see.;0)”

Melissa Gorga gave an interview to the Huffington Post.  Asked if she felt it was worth it to be on the show she says – ““There is always good with bad, I didn’t come on the show to bring anyone down. I didn’t come on to expose anyone. I came on to show we have a great life and we worked hard to have that life.  We weren’t born with silver spoons in our mouths. You can have parents that immigrate here and build a great life. Was it worth it? Yes and no. At night, I can put my head on my pillow because I’m not doing anything wrong. I’m not trying to hurt anyone. I cannot control what other people do to me or how Teresa [Giudice’s] actions are hurting this family. For me, it’s worth it, because I’m not doing anything wrong.”  There’s more – and you can read the whole thing here.

Twitter, Texts, and Blog Wars Oh My!

A small  fight broke out between Melissa Gorga and Kim DePaulo on twitter yesterday afternoon.  Last week’s episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey featured Joey Gorga yelling at Kim DePaulo over her role in trying to expose  Melissa’s alleged past as a stripper  – which Melissa has firmly denied.  Some fans/followers have wondered why Melissa still supports Kim’s Posche boutique.  Melissa cleared things up (a little) by tweeting this yesterday.

Melissa supports another boutique with a similar name:  Posh versus Posche.  Melissa’s four word “not the bad posh” seem to have set of Kim DePaulo – owner of Posche boutique, because she tweeted back a string of nasty tweets to Melissa.  I’m only putting Kim’s direct tweets out there – first she tweeted out this string of three (read bottom up for chronological order).

Then this one …

And then this

Plus a whole lot of comments back to people who were tweeting her by this time.  Melissa was silent on twitter through all of this.

There is also a business account for the boutique. These are the tweets that came out of that one …

Kim D included Melissa’s sister Kim P in her Porsche tweets to make sure she’d see what was going on – probably in the hopes of starting a big twitter war since Melissa didn’t respond in any way, and her sisters are known to jump in and have her back.  Kim P sent a tweet that summed up how I feel about the entire situation.  Oh my!

_______________

The big New Jersey drama of the day went down between Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita.  It started when Jacqueline told Anderson Cooper that Teresa hadn’t reached out to her after Jacqueline’s People Magazine interview telling viewers about Nicholas’s autism.  Anderson confronted Teresa about it, and Teresa said that Jacqueline had sent her a series of mean texts – so she was tired of it and felt threatened.  Jacqueline took to twitter to defend herself – posting pictures of the texts (which you can see in a blog from a few days ago).  Teresa then blogged about it – and 1) explained when Jacqueline and Chris learned that Nicholas was autistic, they were still friends and they had talked about it many times and she had reached out then.  On-screen everyone respected Jacqueline and Chris’s wishes to keep it private.  2) The People Interview was a year and a half later.  Teresa did send two messages to Jacqueline at that time – one through a people representative, and the other via text.

Teresa then posted pictures of the string of texts between the two of them – filling in some of the blanks that Jacqueline had left out when she posted pictures on twitter.

Teresa also put out a plea for her supporters to NOT bash Jacqueline or any of her family/friends on twitter.

Jacqueline then tweeted out the following:

“Teresa thinks she’s being clever with her text edits. Want to see the horrible things Teresa has said?”

“Nice try @teresa_giudice Ugly people like you never win. You’ll see. Everyone will see.”

Jacqueline’s fans responded by tweeting negative things about Teresa to her – which she either replied to or retweeted.  This one was particularly interesting – is she confirming that  Dina’s name was blacked out?

@JacLaurita TG’s txt post are so edited. And she blacked out names (Dina) but left Chris’. ??? Just to be ugly obviously.”      

Then: “This feels good! Lol”

“Now I will go back to enjoying my day. I had a great taping today with Good Morning America. I’ll let u know when it airs.”

Then she started retweeting nasty tweets again.  And then as quickly as it started she switched to tweeting about her kids and family.  It was a very strange string of tweets to read though – sort of like the texts up above.

Obviously I don’t know what Jacqueline thought Teresa did to make her say the things she did with the texts – but eluding that Gabriella wasn’t Juicy’s daughter  – I actually have no words.

UPDATE:  Looks like Teresa attended Kim’s Porsche Mixer on September 27.  Kim D retweeted this (with the photo) : Kristen Anne@KristenPosche The girls at @POSCHEBOUTIQUE mixer!@gijanek @Rxy36h @Teresa_Giudice@KimDPosche today.  But the event was a few days ago before all of this broke out.

Aviva Drescher

I have learned the hard way that I do have a tendency to over-exaggerate to make a point. 

Over-exaggerate? That’s putting it lightly.

The breakfast with Ramona, however, was a different matter.  Yes, it was the aftermath of St. Barths, but my frustration with Ramona had been building for a long time and finally it came to a head. It is so much easier to say nothing and ignore things, but a cancer growing is not good either. 

When a cancer is growing you cut it out. So if you don’t like someone, don’t pay them any attention.

While I sounded shrill, I could not keep it all bottled inside any longer.

That’s the problem. You keep things bottled up until you explode.

Do I think Ramona needs to go to “rehab?” No. I am certainly not the appropriate person to comment on people’s drinking. I’m not an expert, but my mom died six years ago of alcoholism.  I’ve seen the havoc and devastation that alcoholism can wreak, and it makes me overly sensitive to heavy drinking.  I need to remove myself from that topic as it is too close to home.

Alcoholism is an insidious disease.  We don’t know who it affects until it’s too late.  It affected your mother which in turn affected you. But just because alcoholism in your family had a negative effect on you, it does not mean you can project your feelings onto others.

Here is what I do think about Ramona: 

She is rude and insensitive to most people most of the time.

True, yet she still has lots of friends that support her as we see at her charity event and she does have a good heart.  When you tell her she’s crossing the line, she listens & apologizes.

She prioritizes her “turtle time” before anything else.

You’re mad because she didn’t make you priority #1.  Ramona works hard and plays hard.  It’s all on Twitter – traveling to promote her wine events, pictures with her family & friends having a great summer, supporting causes.

She will stop at nothing to cover up the truth. She will lie, discredit people, run away, or over-talk to deflect attention from her bad behavior. 

You’re describing yourself. When you make Ramona look good, there’s something wrong with you.

Ramona brags that she is “honest,” but honesty without kindness is sheer brutality. 

What was brutal was your behavior.

Ramona, however, seems to relish slamming others, both to their face and behind their backs. With that kind of honesty, I think I’d prefer polite deceit. 

Then you deserve a friend like Jill Zarin.  Hope you two become BFFs.

Growing up, my dad was my hero.  He was an amazing father and husband to my beautiful mother.  When I had my accident, he  was the one who told me to “keep screaming” while I was trapped for three hours in the conveyor belt, even though others were trying to quiet me down.  He was the one who told me that I would be the “bionic woman” when we learned the doctors would have to amputate my leg.  He taught me never to be a follower and always believe in myself.  He has always been funny, real and my champion —  the way a great father should be.

I heard you say you were resentful of the way your parents spoiled you.  If they had treated you like a normal child, maybe you wouldn’t turn into the narcissist you are today. But then again if you were normal you wouldn’t be on this show. Bethenny can really pick ’em. Andy owes her more than a fruit basket after handpicking that fruitcake.

And NEVER would he throw anyone out of his home, vacation spot, or party.  Please try to look beyond his schtick — he is a decent, good man.

He’d probably try to poke a woman with his pecker, then she’d run out.

Suddenly, he found himself in a situation where he felt he had to protect his daughter.

I see the humor in sending a man to a women’s event after St. Barth’s but you should’ve never put him in that position.

All I can say is that Ramona should not have had two guards eject my father from  her party. It was a vile moment that says more about Ramona’s relentless need to be seen in the best light than my father’s behavior. For the record Ramona’s self serving overreaction to my fathers touching her arm was the worst bad  acting I have ever seen.

He did it twice. When he first said “hello” he held onto her wrist.  Then after she walked away, he grabbed her upper arm. Too bad you can’t recognize your self serving overreaction.

 I was very surprised that Ramona wouldn’t accept my check. This was about a charity, where personal feelings should not get in the way of money given to help those in need.

She should have accepted the check.  But I see from her point of view how you would be an abuser and the irony of contributing to that cause.

If the tables were turned, I would never order the removal from my home or party of one of Ramona’s  relatives. Believe me, my father was rattled and speechless. 

I’m sure George has rattled many women to make them feel uncomfortable & speechless by his inappropriate behavior. Now he knows the feeling!

I would also like to  cheer for my new friend Bradie. She lost her leg recently in a boating accident.  She is 17 years old and lives in St Louis. This week she got up for the first time in a new temporary  prosthesis. I am so proud of her strength, courage, and perseverance.

I hope your charity continues after the show ends.

Heather Thomson

This week’s show along with next week’s, highlights some of the charity work that the ladies of RHONY do. Tonight you saw Ramona’s event for the Domestic Women’s Abuse Center and you get a preview of my upcoming fashion show benefiting the Kellner Pediatric Liver Foundation, as well as a glimpse of Carole prepping for an event of hers that will support a charity in honor of her late husband. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to bring attention to the work we are doing at Kellner Pediatric Liver Foundation and for Organ Donor Awareness with the platform of RHONY. At Kellner among other initiatives, we raise money to support families who have a child in need of a liver transplant to survive but simply can’t afford it.

I’m glad Bravo shows the charity events on the show.  I think you all are doing great work.  Just don’t forget to fight so your event makes the show.

And thats Yummie stuff.

You go girl with the gratuitous advertising!

This year Sam suggested that I put on a Yummie fashion show. I figured the men would love seeing the beautiful ladies in their lingerie and the women would love the product so that was a  Win/Win!

You know George would.  Sell everybody!

I decided to asked Aviva to model in my show because:

1.  She lives her life bravely with a disability. 2. She is gorgeous. 3. She add another level of attention to the show and to the charity as an inspiration to others. I was nervous that she would say no, but was thrilled that she immediately and without any hesitation agreed to do it. YAY!!

Of course she’d say yes. You’re feeding her ego and she eats it up.

As you all know, I am juggling a lot of different balls right now from Yummie to family but I really needed to focus on making this event the best it can be.

Sell, sell, sell!

We talked about the magic number of $400,000 that it takes to pay for one transplant. With all of my heart, I want us to reach that goal. You will have to see how far we get next week, but in the meantime, you can log onto KellnerLiverFoundation.org to help us!!

I hope you reach that goal and then some.

Off to Ramona’s lunch and fashion show to benefit the Domestic Women’s Abuse Center. Carole and I are whisked up to the 90th floor to a fabulous apartment with incredible views. Everything is going great. . .I am feeling super nerdy chic in my glasses and black satin skirt suit channeling J. Crew President and Creative Director Jenna Lyons (she’s so fab!).

Oh that’s who you are channeling.  Problem is the details and the textures don’t come out on screen & on photo when you wear black. Jenna wears color.

Despite the fact that George might have been a bit too aggressive in his defense of Aviva (at Ramona’s party none-the-less), the guy is harmless and he was embarrassed and a little shaken to be asked to leave — truth be told.

I seriously doubt this was the first time he has been asked to leave because of his behavior.

So, Carole escorted him out in the most low key way possible as the emotions were flaring throughout the room.

Carole is very brave for being alone in an elevator with him.

Luann Delesseps

I’m wondering why Sonja waited so long to take down the portrait of her ex husband! It’s going to be therapeutic for Sonja to redecorate her dining room and fill it with art that she enjoys and that doesn’t remind her of the past.

Did you have to point out how empty the two spaces on the wall were?

Aviva and Ramona’s lunch played out just like I thought it would. They are both so different and both are unwilling to let bygones be bygones. I think Aviva was wrong to blame Ramona for Sonja’s behavior. While Ramona loves to party with Sonja, Sonja is a grown woman and can make her own choices.

Wow you’re actually making sense without Jill’s influence.

Poor George! He loves Aviva and probably would do anything for her but coming to Ramona’s charity event and advocating for Aviva wasn’t the best idea even if he was bearing donations. Aviva needs to fight her own battles and keep her father out of it. We tried to preserve his dignity by walking out with him but I know he felt embarrassed. I just wish George had opted to leave before Ramona called in the guards to have him removed.

Holy cow jumped over the moon! Are you feeling okay Luann? You don’t seem like your snake-like self. I’m actually beginning to….(gulp) like you.

Carole Radziwill

Today is F. Scott Fitzgerald’s birthday. He had a lot of friends and trust me, they all drove drunk. He was a wiz, too, with metaphor so I think I’ll borrow his words.

“[Real Housewife] quarrels are bitter things. They’re not like aches or wounds, they’re more like splits in the skin that won’t heal because there’s not enough material.”

I know what he’s talking about — I don’t have enough material for this blog.

It’s hard to defend Aviva after what you’ve seen. You can’t say anything (not enough material) to alleviate Aviva’s hate and Ramona’s hard feelings.

Do you get the feeling you’ve read it all before? Same stuff, different scene. I’ve got George buying potency wood, Sonja too upset to hang her coat, Heather strutting her Yummie with skill, Robin Pocker of the Pocker pictures pocketing paintings with her crew, Aviva giving spelling lessons and. . .well, whatever.

I’m sure there’s a passage in the housewife handbook stating “it sucks to fight but we need the ratings.”

That penthouse is really high up.

It’s a penthouse. What do you expect?

Sonja has turned a corner on friends and husbands. She’s taking down the portraits that the Queen Mother’s painter painted. Oh boy. Nothing sincere can come after that statement. Here it comes: The Morgans are American royalty. Yes, royalty who charge us $3 to use their ATMs. There’s an Aristocrat for you. (Cheap!) No wonder he hasn’t kept to his pre-conception agreement.

Royalty expects loyalty without having to pay for it.

Heather is Yummie

Heather’s even got you advertising for her. Gotta love it.

$400,000 for one organ? Wow. I’m not an organ donor, but now I’m going to be. Everything but my heart — it’s taken some hits, it’s mostly scar tissue now. I think I’m going to have my heart buried with me. Me and my heart on a hilly green knoll under big shady elm trees. My tombstone will read “She Was Something. . .” Unless any of you come up with something else. Tweet me.

Heather’s would be “She Was Yummie.” She’s even got me advertising for her!

It’s really amazing, the work Heather does to raise money for transplants. Like with Jake. Remember when Aviva helped get Jake running legs? It’s so humbling to see kids like that — like Heather’s son Jax — who need legs and new livers, and still smile so big with their great big hearts. It puts pinot and pirates in perspective. Having a son who almost died is sobering. Maybe this is why Heather is so grounded.

Could you teach Aviva to be grounded?  She seems to take advantage of her missing limb and phobias as a way to manipulate people.

M-E-TA-P-H-O-R meet R-A-M-O-N-A

When Bravo does a montage (have they already folks?) of the Top 10 Fights of Housewife History, I’ll bet this scene is number three. I’d put it against anything Miami comes up with this season.

Aviva’s flip out in St. Barth’s would make the top 3. This scene is just a continuation.

I don’t know about Ramona and Sonja and LuAnn, but I would love to go to rehab. 28 days to talk about myself, and the ladies, and the day we vowed not to be mean girls and how things really took a turn that day at lunch when we first talked about Heather talking. I want to talk about the crumb tray that never appeared, the Italians who didn’t show, the parade that never was. . .oh, boy, do I want to talk.

I can’t wait for the reunion.  Did they let you talk?  Better yet, write a book.

Charity starts at Home

George should not have come, but he did, then he left. It wasn’t the right place for apologies. The cameras didn’t catch it but he was rattled. Heather and I noticed it. For all his bluster he is uninitiated in the ways of Housewife Warfare. He seemed confused.

He’s used to his money talking for him.  Entitlement is a disease that can spread and when you realize you’re just like everyone else, it can be disconcerting.

Sonja Morgan

I was so angry because I wanted closure with my ex above all else and was willing to give up a lot in my settlement financially to keep my daughter in her childhood home.

When I didn’t get my face-to-face with him, and a fair way to do that (not even close, according to my lawyers), I was angry. It’s been so long that I have been working and supporting so much on my own beyond what child support can do.

There are many women that work and have kids with no child support who don’t live in a NYC townhouse. Maybe if you let go of the old stuff, you can invite better stuff in.

My assets and cash are tied up in this divorce and I want what is rightfully mine, and to be independent again so I can move on. If it means losing our home and a lot of what I have worked my whole life for, then I would have to continue in court to fight, in other words sue, for cold cash. It’s not what I want to do. . .It takes time, energy, and money away from my daughter.

Why your ex would rather let the money go to the lawyers is beyond me.

Wow! It’s not appropriate for George to go out with Carole because Aviva cares for her? What does that say about me and Aviva?  No wonder I said I questioned her motives in my earlier blog when she wanted to set me up with George.

Apparently it’s okay for George to screw someone she thinks is “white trash” and not her friend that’s like a sister.  Glad you didn’t fall for that setup.

Aviva should have never sent her father to an all-girls event that Ramona was hosting when they are on bad terms.  Mail the check.  He says he gave thousands and thousands of dollars?  Try $500?

He says he has sex every day too. I guess all those libido herbal meds are going to waste.

Then when he calls Ramona “trailer t–d.” Oh my. Now we understand where Aviva gets her language from. I feel bad for Aviva at this point.  I think George has enabled Aviva, as Carole has.  No one has helped Aviva see the truth.  Carole has no idea what has gone down at this point.

How did Aviva change a lightbulb? She said, “Daddy, I want a new apartment.”

I am standing on my own two feet. I am not out at the Bed Bath and Beyond looking for a husband to support me and my daughter.

Reid opened his wallet and there she appeared.

 I am working hard with Sonja in The City.  So many parties!  And in real time with months and sometimes a year to plan!  Not with in days, and with budget!!! Not comped and out of my pocket!!! Yipppppeee!!!

Did Aviva attack you for Sonja in The City anniversary party at the reunion? It looked okay. She should just be thankful you didn’t ask Luann to sing.

Ramona Singer

Divorce is always hard and it takes so much strength to get through it. I haven’t gone through this and LuAnn has. She showed such a warm, kind, compassionate side of herself with Sonja. I am happy LuAnn was there for Sonja to give her the support and understanding she needed.

Bizarro world!

I just loved the scene between Carole and Mario. Its always great when your friends and significant other get along and I really enjoyed watching Carole and Mario interact and work together in his office.

They are paisans.

I grew up in a home with domestic violence. So many victims are afraid to speak because they are afraid of the judgments. Domestic violence crosses all races and classes. I have tried to give it a voice whenever I can. I decided to raise money for a NYC shelter that takes in women and children who are victims of domestic violence. I set it up as a ladies luncheon, women supporting women. There was a fashion show showing Kimberly Towers’ designs, wine, hors d’oeuvres, and a pretty glass bowl set up where everyone could put their donations.

Aviva is too self-absorbed with her own issues to realize that others may have issues in their past.  I’m sure Aviva can never be as scary as your father was to you. Stay strong!

I was very surprised to see George there.  Isn’t everyone a little taken back when an uninvited guest shows up?

They know you don’t like surprises.

Not only did he start yelling and demanding apologies but he was taking attention away from the cause!

You were yelling too.

George made it about himself and Aviva. He made it a huge scene. I wanted to just walk away because this wasn’t what the afternoon was about. Then he grabbed my arm with a hard pinch to keep my attention. He hurt me and he was trying to force me into a situation I didn’t want to be in.

The utter irony that he put his hand on you during a charity event raising money for abused women is unbelievably idiotic.

Of course, in the end the donations were not rejected and I accepted them. They donated $500. The same I donated to Aviva’s cause.

Mr. Big Bucks says he donated thousands of dollars. I’m pretty sure he exaggerated his sexual conquests too.

I did not have two burly bodyguards carry a weak eighty year old man out of an event.

I wouldn’t describe Carole as burly.

When Aviva called me to meet her for breakfast I for sure thought she wanted to clear the air and have us be in a good place again.  What happened to the Aviva who said, “Say what you mean, but don’t be mean”?

I believe Reid had to tell her that. Now we know why he did.

Harry (Aviva’s ex-husband) and I have been friends for years, long before I knew Aviva. I called Harry to see if he could give me some better insight into Aviva.  I really wasn’t understanding any of her behavior towards me in St. Barth’s.  I apologized twice already and that was clearly not working.

I would want to know why Aviva’s a-hole is so tight – you couldn’t push a needle through her butt with a bulldozer.

It’s as if Aviva became a snake full of venom and vile words, that were lies nonetheless. No one can say that I ran away from Aviva.  I just sat there and took her non-stop abuse. Part of me was in shock.  I was frozen in my chair. I was hoping this would stop and quickly. I was thinking maybe she worked like a light. As quickly as you turn a light switch on, she would just switch and become the Aviva I first knew.

None of this happened. There was nothing more for me to do but exit.

Can’t argue with crazy.  It’s not as if anything you did would scar her life permanently.  Hand her your face cream.  She’s jealous ’cause for a 56 yr old woman you look younger than she does.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning ladies & gents. Happy sun filled Saturday. :-). What’s everyone up to today? I’ve got laundry to do. :/

    • Christi44 says:

      I was in a happy place. After reading your post, I realized the washer has stopped running and I need to go “advance the laundry”. 🙂

    • trudie says:

      Good morning Powell! For me it is the dog park and then laundry. Beautiful day here.

    • Donna says:

      Good moring, my grandaughter is coming over to help close up the pool

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Good Morning..I also have soo much laundry! I hate laundry. I’d hire someone just to wash and fold it for me. lol

    • LaineyLainey says:

      HI Powell – it’s not sunny here, but we’re grateful for that!! We need this rain and hope for more!!! So yummy to sleep in when it’s raining!

  2. Christi44 says:

    Wow! I wouldn’t shop at Poshe if you paid me. Not that I am a Melissa fan (or a Teresa fan for that matter), but Kim D. is a nasty piece of work and is not a friend to Teresa. If Teresa’s PR people are smart they will distance Teresa from Kim D. as quick as they can. I’ll even write the statement for them…”While I understand Kim D.’s frustration over what happened at the fashion show and the backlash she has been getting, I will not associate with someone who continually bad mouths a member of my family. (insert a vague dig at Melissa)”

    • Rebecca says:

      Why should Teresa have to defend Melissa? Melissa’s sisters, make-up artist, and girlfriend are constantly trashing Teresa – and for four years. Where is Melissa shown to defend her sister-in-law?

      • It’s a smart PR move to take the high road and not engage in this nasty stuff. Just like it was smart of Teresa to ask her fans not to bash Jacqueline. I think people are tired of this nasty stuff. I could barely stomach recapping it for the blog.

        • Powell says:

          Right NMD. You said what I was going to say to Rebecca. Taking the high road is the best PR move even if she personally doesn’t mean it.

          • Rebecca says:

            I still don’t agree. Kim D is not the only business owner the Gorgas have pissed off. They are not considered model citizens.Why don’t the two of them (and her vile sisters) act like mature adults? You’re not asking Teresa to take the high road, you’re asking her to stoop down to their level.

      • Christi44 says:

        She doesn’t have to defend Melissa… but, true or not, assumptions are made about Tre due to her continued “friendship” with Kim D. All I am saying it is a good public relations move for Tre.

      • Christi44 says:

        Maybe this would sound better to those that are big fans of Tre…”Even though said member of my family has continually condoned others bad-mouthing me, I will not associate….”

    • She also tweeted a photo of a young Melissa (maybe 20) on the toilet. It had the allabouttruth watermark on it – so Kim had grabbed it from the blog. Who does that? I wonder if she just wanted press before the reunion or something like that – but wouldn’t this behavior affect her business? Maybe it brings more business in if people are curious about her.

      • Powell says:

        So many of these “friends of the HWs” want to be a HW so bad that they go to any lengths. He business us her bread & butter but she doesn’t care if she jeopardizes it just for a chance to be one of them. She’s & her store have been highlighted from the beginning & she’s got exposure & money & she wants more. I hope it backfires on her.

      • VV says:

        My guess is Kim knows a lot of dirt on Melissa and perhaps Joey. Twitting that picture proves nothing really – and I despise Melissa – Melissa looks very young and it was obviously a joke that a friend played on her. If Kim really wants to prove something, she has to do better than that.

    • trudie says:

      I agree – I wouldn’t shop there either.

    • Powell says:

      Right Christi44. B did the same. You could be my PR. I like how you stated that.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Seriously, I’m no Melissa fan by any stretch of the imagination, but Kim D is a piece of work. Her next show is at the Brownstone and she tweeted how she loves the Manzo. They are all staying friendly with Kim D (except Melissa) just to piss eachother off, IMO.

    • lori says:

      My hair stylist said she wanted to go to Porsche and punch Kim in the face…made me lol, except I could totally see her doing just that.

  3. HAPPY BIRTH DAY PlainviewSue….. Saturday B days…THE BEST…..

    Hugs and Peace
    Diva

    PS…Loved the needle and the bulldozer statement….ROFLMAO…Good ONE !!!

    Since you share a birthday with the late, great Madeline Kahn, we have a special song for you: “Here I stand, the goddess of desire. Set men on fire. I have this power. Morning, noon, and night, it’s dwink and dancing. Some quick womancing. And then a shower. Stage door Johnnies constantly suwwound me They always hound me, with one wequest. Who can satisfy their lustful habits? I’m not a wabbit! I need some wesss….. west.”

    Happy, happy day Plainviewsue! May it be fabulous from beginning to end!

  6. trudie says:

    If I am reading the text messages properly, Jac says she just sign a multi-million dollar deal. Wonder what it is?

    • Trudie…maybe in jacs purple haze , she meant to say they signed a multi million dollar agreement to PAY BACK the millions they pocketed… I hope she realizes that “someone” just might be paying the Laurita’s a HOME VISIT to check on the well being of Nic and CJ ..her rants are becoming more and more disturbing..I see WHITE COATS in her future !!!!

      • Powell says:

        Yeah. Someone in NJ that’s like Gloria Alldollar calling CPS on Nadea Sulliman.

      • The Tin Man says:

        Maybe that’s just the white light you wrapped her in the other day.

        • Tin Man..OOHHH I didnt even think about that…. weird… I wish jac and chris good things , really.. they need to STOP this nonsense and take care of FAMILY …
          Hugs and Peace

          BTW…an oil changing place here in town has a TIN MAN out front …i think of you when I see it… it makes me smile..LOL

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      A multi-million dollar deal would negate any interference by Teresa in regards to providing for her son with needs…..too much fantasy, never any proof….getting tired of the wacky one.

  7. VV says:

    I didn’t See where Dina’s name fit in any of those characters that where blacked out. I saw “Kim” fits on the text about about is not going to clear your name up.
    Either “producers or Catherine” fits on the text about setting me up.
    There are 5 characters on the name where Jac says (blank) says hi. But T replies give “him” a kiss for me. That can’t be Dina either.
    The last black out the word “boyfriend” fits but it could be a name too.

    Jac flew over the cuckoo’s nest…

    • Powell says:

      I just don’t understand her.

    • I guess the part about that text that really bugged me was Dina is her family. Why drag her into this – especially if T was trying to keep her out of it. But doubly so if her name wasn’t even one that was blacked out.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Yah I don’t think any of them were Dina’s name at all. Obviously one is Kim’s, the other is either “production or Melissa”…I think it’s interesting Jac says “None of us are safe” which makes me think it said “Production” and probably Jac knows that production sets this stuff up, so just “take the money and live your life”. Interesting.

      Teresa also updated it saying she did not leave out any of her texts, which makes Jac sound even crazier since, like T points out, Jac is basically talking to herself.

      • VV says:

        There are 11 characters blacked out on the Text about setting me up. What is telling is that according to Jac, Teresa was the one setting Melissa up and on the text Jac doesn’t call Tre on it. Proving that Jac knows Tre didn’t set anybody up. Teresa clearly texted Jac saying she (Teresa) was set up and Jac doesn’t call her on it????After claiming having texts about it. Odd…..

    • dch60 says:

      Cat – they refer to that producer as Cat and that certainly fits. And the conversation lends itself to that too. The fact that they aired Joe’s phone call – producers. Then Jac says “none of us are safe. Just take the money and live your life.” Think about it… none of the cast is safe from a bad edit so just take the money Bravo pays them to be a housewife… It bet anything it’s Cat.

      • dch60 says:

        I missed a part… The fact that Teresa was set up (the producers) she wouldn’t be surprised by anything the producers (Cat) would do which follows what Jac says about Joe’s phone call.

  8. Donna says:

    Sometimes I wonder if Jac’s drama is real and that she is having fun creating twitter drama so people will “pay attention” to her while she flips her mind.

  9. melthehound says:

    Obviously I don’t know what Jacqueline thought Teresa did to make her say the things she did with the texts – but eluding that Gabriella wasn’t Juicy’s daughter – I actually have no words.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I have One, for Jac. It starts with a C and ends with a T. There is one vowel and the remaining consonant is one of the most popular letters used on Wheel of Fortune.

  10. VV says:

    Sounds like a dig at Tre

    • VV says:

      For those that don’t know. Lysa Simpson is one of Melissa’s sisters.

      • Powell says:

        Ok. Thks for clearing that up. He just said that to hurt T. That’s so wrong.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I always thought it was so hateful during Joe and Melissa’s very first episode on the show when, at the christening, after the fight started and Joey was running after someone, Melissa’s sister Kym stood in front of him and said, “Joey, look at me, your REAL Sister!!” and tried to get him to calm down.

        I did not even like Teresa then, and I was trying to give Melissa and Joey a chance, but I instantly thought that was SO ugly. I also thought about how I would punch someone’s lights out if they told one of my brothers that THEY were his REAL sister, as opposed to me — his BLOOD!!

        I think it was Melissa’s sister Kym, not Lisa. I can’t remember which one for sure, but I’m pretty sure it was Kym Pirella.

        As for those sisters, it would seem that they have a whole lot MORE to worry about than interfering in Joey and Melissa’s family business and constantly trashing Teresa on Twitter for months and months and months.

        For one thing, one of them filed bankruptcy within the past year. SH did an article and had the documents backing it up.

        For another thing, one of them is married to a GAY or BISEXUAL man. This is, ALLEGEDLY, according to Will Love (formerly part of Melissa’s P.R. team who quit because he interviewed that he did not like the nasty and unethical behavior and lengths the team was willing to go to bash, hurt and undermine Teresa. He said he thought it was very unprofessional. He also says, in real life, Melissa Gorga is a very fake, nasty, spoiled, snotty, very MEAN woman who is OBSESSED with all things Teresa. *Shrug* He is also a gay man, and he says that he first saw either Kym or Lisa’s husband in a gay bar before he met him as Melissa’s in-law once he started working for Melissa’s P.R. team. He said that the husband appeared supremely uncomfortable around him once they were officially introduced, and Will opined that it was because he recognized Will from the gay bar (and he knew Will recognized HIM too).

        That is MORE THAN ENOUGH to convince me that those trashy sisters need to be a bit more focused on their OWN backyards, as opposed to Joey & Melissa’s; Teresa and Joe’s; and even Kim D.’s.

        • VV says:

          Yes, I remember the first Season the Gorgas were in. Melissa saying something like… Joe (Gorga) always tells me why isn’t my family (Gorga) more like your family (Marco).
          Joey Gorga is a certified idiot. I’m sorry in my opinion he is.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            The Gorga family is far from perfect, I am sure (but what family IS perfect?).

            I get the impression, however, that they are a very TRADITIONAL and HARDWORKING family that raised their children with very STRONG CATHOLIC Values and Morals.

            I get the feeling Papa Gorga ruled his home with an IRON-FIST and had very DEFINITE ideas about how a MAN should behave and about how a girl should behave and turn into a RESPECTABLE AND DECENT YOUNG LADY (I’ll bet you he was super-strict with Teresa and imposed a curfew. And I honestly do NOT think Teresa was lying when she said that Joe Giudice is the ONLY man she has been with sexually. Poor her. One of the reasons she probably stays with Joe is because she is “dickmatized” and has no idea that she probably can get just as good or better from someone who would also treat her with respect. She probably also stays because she is a hardline Catholic who sees divorce as either NO option or the VERY LAST option).

            My Father was very similar in my home. He also always told my brothers and me, “I do not care who you choose to date and marry when it comes to color or creed or financial status. All I ask is that NONE of you bring TRASH into this home. If you DO, I will TELL you that they are TRASH and that I do NOT approve.”

            And he DID. I brought 2 men home to meet my parents. My father (and mother) LOVED the first one and told me that he was a DECENT and HONORABLE person, and they would welcome him as a member of our family. We later broke up amicably. He was/is a great person too.

            My parents had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to say about the 2nd man I brought home. They were very polite, but noticed a slight distance and coldness from them to him. HE did not even notice and LOVED them.

            Once I broke up with him, my Mom told me that she and my Father HATED him on sight. She said she almost had to tape my Father’s mouth shut and tie his hands together to stop him from calling me and telling me that he thought the guy was TRASH. They decided that if they did, I would REBEL and end up marrying him out of rebelliousness and my refusal to be controlled.

            But, Boy, did I hear it when we broke up!! They STILL say it to this day whenever his name comes up as they suck their teeth and roll their eyes (And, in the end, it turned out that he WAS straight NO GOOD and straight TRASH. So, their first impression of him was right on the money.).

            Melissa’s family strikes me as straight GUTTER TRASH who have NO idea what the phrase “morals and values” mean. I am sorry, but that is simply what my instincts SCREAM to me. JMHO.

            I mean, those sisters look like they have done some HARD-ASS LIVING and PARTYING. People I know who have done cocaine and other hard drugs have that “hardness and coarseness” to their skin and features. That’s what her sisters look like to me. Melissa’s mother also looks very OLD and WRINKLED in the face. Now, the woman could be 80 years old and actually look very GOOD for her age. I doubt that her mother is that old, though.

            Melissa’s father was also ALLEGEDLY a a drug addict. He should not be penalized for that as it IS a disease, but he was not this “wonderful Ozzie and Harriet-type father constantly walking around with a camcorder” the way Melissa tries to portray on television, however.

            I don’t know. They just look like a family that comes from a “different” side of the “tracks” (as in the WRONG side) than the Gorga’s. JMHO.

            I am sure they are very polite to Melissa, as they are decent people, and they recognize her as their son’s wife and as the mother of some of their grandchildren.

            I doubt, however, that Mama and Papa Gorga ever seriously WARMLY embraced Melissa. I get the feeling they TOLERATE her (but that, if they would have had a choice, they would have chosen a different type of woman for their son. And it’s a pretty sad day when Joe Giudice comes out as the “winning” in-law when it comes to the Gorga’s, huh?).

            This is all just speculation on my part, and I could be TOTALLY wrong (….but I doubt it. *Shrug*).

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm. I am not sure he can read or write. JMHO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I’m not trying to be ugly. I am actually being dead serious. I honestly do not think Joey can read.

            If he CAN, it is only at a 2nd or 3rd grade level. I got that impression during the very 1st season when he always had to have everything read to him. I did see him supposedly reading a text he sent; however, I honestly think he repeated what he was told (by Melissa) to memorize.

            I’m pretty sure Teresa can at least read and write because she was at Jac’s house when she was working on her letter to Joey during Season 3. If Teresa could NOT read and write, Jac would have OUTED her on Twitter (or her blog or in an interview or as a secret source to the different blogs to which she dials in and acts as “Deep Throat,” — which considering Jac’s alleged past professions as a stripper and an escort is probably an accurate nickname for her It is probably what also got Chris Laurita to dump his fiancee’ and to marry her — well, that and getting knocked up. :-D).

            • Called A Princess... says:

              I was not trying to be mean either. Sometimes I am too the point. I do not think that Joey reads very well. And writing?

              The production crew for Bravo seem to think that Joe and Teresa are strange/weird/odd people. Well I think that Melissa and Joey are just as strange/weird/odd people. The common tread being the Gorga family tree. Joey and Teresa seem at times to be, dropped on the floor, brain damaged. A glimmer of brain washed terror/rage seems to layer them both when in battle with one another. Their spouses are not smart enough, or mature enough to help them heal and recover from a mysterious upbringing? JMHO.

  13. Wow…Good Morning! What a casino. I haven’t read everything yet…I need a second cup of coffee before I do! Kudos to you NMD for putting it all together! (and anyone else I missed before reading!)

    I hope you all have a nice Saturday. I have laundry and cleaning to do, but taking it easy after that. I am hoping I also decorate for the fall, but many of those things are in storage somewhere. I don’t plan to buy anything at the moment. Do you guys decorate? How about for Halloween? I like to out some little things out, but I don’t do a lot.

    Happy Birthday PlainViewSue

    Thank you, as always, to our amazing bloggers. You guys are so awesome!

  16. It was RealHousewifeVa who discovered Teresa’s blog on her website – and BeetTweets on twitter who made sure I knew to look for it and recap the whole saga for you. I don’t want anyone to think that I find this stuff by myself.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      You know what was so funny, I NEVER go to Teresa’s site. I just randomly decided to go and apparently she had JUST posted the blog when I commented about it here. A minute later I checked her twitter and she posted it there after I posted it here. lol. It was so weird how I decided to check out her site at that moment. But within minutes it was all over the place.

      Anyway, you really are doing such a wonderful job, all of you, I love reading your writing, findings, recaps…etc. Lynn would be so proud

    • Rebecca says:

      Notice how Jacqueline’s texts show Teresa’s name on top, meaning Teresa is in her contacts list. Teresa’s text show a phone number, meaning Teresa does not have her in her contacts list. She’s the only one who has moved on. If Jacqueline ever did, well, let’s face it… we’d be trying to pull pigs out of the sky.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey NMD…I’m BeetTweets on twitter!! I saw that RHV posted about Teresa and went to check it out. I NEVER go to the HW’s web sites so thanks RHV for leading me there. After reading I wnet I twitter and noticed that no one was talking about. I figured that all the people I follow never go to the web sites either so I tweeted the link….than all hell broke loose!!!!

  17. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I know there are a lot of people here who get upset at the pro-Teresa posts here. I’d just like to say I went to Reality Tea this morning, and there were 1200, yes 1200 comments on the Text Drama btwn Jac and T and that site is very ANTI-TERESA. Just to make everyone feel validated, there are lots of T haters out there, too. lol

    I really do think, in the end of it all, it’s very sad how these women behave on social media. My daughter started middle school this year and a big part of the school’s open house concentrated on encouraging the parents to NOT allow their children to have facebook and twitter accounts because the principal said that the majority of bullying they are facing is now going on online, and the school cannot control what the children are doing in their homes.
    The way Jacqueline uses her social media accounts to prove how awful Teresa is, is kind of scary. And it’s not just because I’m not a Jacqueline fan. Honestly, if Teresa was doing this I would also say the same about her. At this point, it’s been a year since these women have had anything to do with one another. From what we know, they are all living their own lives, pursuing their own endeavors and are not even filming yet. Why is Jacqueline so set on showing the world how awful Teresa is when it seems they’ve all moved on at this point? Plus, nothing that she says is even about things Teresa has done to HER…it’s about how Teresa hated Melissa. Why does Jac care so much??

    For the sake of their children (Ashlee and Gia both are on twitter and can see all of this!) they should really do what my daughter’s middle school principal suggested, and be mature enough to not use social media in a way to harm others. Sad sad.

    • California35 says:

      I agree with you, they need to stoooooop bashing each other on public. Do people ever move one anymore? I do wonder if it is part of what they need to do for the show, while the show is still on. If it is or isn’t, I think it doesn’t let them move on. I am not T’ fan, but I don’t bash her. I am over her :-P, but seeing all the T bashing from those who used to be her friends, and from her family, I do feel bad for her. Even if she is horrible, all we see now is the bashing from the others, and that makes those others look very bad. I wonder also, if that is why they want to bash her and expose her. They are so upset because she is going on with her life (and making $), by doing things they don’t approve of. Who knows, but the whole NJ thing is so not interesting to me. Enough bashing, and if ther will continue to be bashing, please do so by saying what really bother them…no more stupid texting note, or more “you know what you did” coments. TELL US ALREADY and move on lol

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        I agree. I just don’t understand what they are hoping to accomplish. For everyone to hate her, her businesses to fail, really sink into financial debt with no way out? Would Jac then be happy? Would she then move on with her life? Just confuses me. Teresa still does have 4 young children and a husband facing prison time. Let her make a living and move on. Geez.

        Someone on twop said Jac’s tweet sounded like a bunny boiler “You will get what you deserve. You will see. Everyone will see”. I don’t blame T for getting scared of her.

        • California35 says:

          Exactly. Jack has her family, her problems, her happiness. She should spend her time with them. She should not watch the show or read the magazines. She should turn off her devices, and live without them for a while. I would rather she comes back out later to tell us about HER life, how her son is doing, how Ashle is doing (ok that is not her life), but you know what I mean. Come back, if you must, to tell us about the progress you have made, the events or trip you are planing or already had. I don’t know, whatever it is that makes YOU happy.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          RHVA – you ask if they are hoping that her businesses fail, and that she sinks into financial debt? My answer is yes. In my opinion, that’s exactly what a lot of people, especially Jac, are hoping. The bunny boiler comment was correct and hopefully not some kind of foreshadowing. Something’s gotta give. Jac gets help or Jac gets crazier. She needs to stop, but it’s like the law of motion…an object in motion stays in motion…that’s only part of it, but Jac’s Kray is DEFINITELY IN MOTION.

        • Sam says:

          I didn’t realize Jac had actually tweeted, “You will get what you deserve.” This jives with what I just posted (although I think it will show up below this post) about Jac’s envy making her furious over the fact that a person she views as undeserving is getting all the goodies.

          I hope her family gets her to a therapist who knows how to deal with anger and envy issues.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Anger, envy…and OBSESSION.

            • Sam says:

              Yup, absolutely, Lainey! And this obsession is so intense it’s almost like a sibling rivalry where one sister is always looking to see what the other sister has.

          • The Tin Man says:

            I think she was just saying that eventually Karma would catch up to Teresa, really. I don’t think it was a threat at all, like what goes around comes around, you reap what you sow. I say stuff like that all the time and it’s judgmental but never threatening.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              It’s hard to know exactly what she meant by that. She’d be better off saying what she means. If she meant to say “Karma will catch up to you.” That’s what she should say instead of “You will get what you deserve.” Then it begs the question “What does Jac think Teresa deserves?” If someone were sending me or one of my children messages like those, I would be very concerned.

              • Sam says:

                Once again, I totally agree with you, Lainey. If she meant Karma, she should have said Karma. And I always hear the line, “You’ll get what you deserve!” as being a wish for something evil to happen to someone, no matter who says it.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              While that might have been what she meant, that is not actually what she said. She said your are going to get what you deserve. It’s just as fair for it to be read as some sort of threat, even if it was just idle chatter. While, we might have all said something like that in general, I am pretty sure none of us ever texted that to someone who use to be a friend, along with dozens of other argumentative messages.

              • The Tin Man says:

                I was only trying to give her the benefit of a doubt. I’m not a fan, but I don’t dislike her. I understand where you’re coming from though because I would never give Teresa the benefit of the doubt as I dislike her intensely and if she said something like that I’d think she meant it as a threat too.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          If Jac saying, “You will get what you deserve” is in reference to Teresa’s “karma,” Jac’s saying that will negatively affect HER (Jac’s) karma, IMO.

          Jac has done a LOT of nasty stuff behind the scenes, not only to Teresa but to her own sister-in-law, Dina, as well. Dina can be snooty, and I know she has her faults. But I honestly DO believe that Dina tries her best to stay away from negativity and toxicity as much as possible. I think this is why she avoids both Caroline and Jac. Jac and Caroline have turned so toxic and negative, that I can almost see dark auras around the both of them on my t.v. screen.

          Using the karma argument, in my own PERSONAL opinion (This is just MY opinion, people), Jac has done things and is continuing to do things that are causing NEGATIVE KARMA to come into her life.

          For instance, Jac and Chris are facing federal fraud charges and the possible piercing of the corporate veil of their former company so that the creditors of that company can go after Jac and Chris’ own PERSONAL assets to get the money they are owed. Jac is also named as a Defendant (not just Chris and his brothers).

          Chris’ BLK water business idea seems to be a big flop and may even end up COSTING him money (thus more money pouring OUT of rather than INTO the Laurita household). There is also talk of some people reporting BLK for making false claims about the healing properties of BLK, including in relation to autism. That could also cause BIG problems for the Laurita’s (e.g., possible future fines; possible future class action lawsuits).

          Jac’s looks have gone DOWNHILL in a MAJOR way, IMO, over the course of the last year. She looks like a bloated mess with a package of weenies stuck in her neck. It is like she has turned into this chubby Asian woman that talks with Jac Laurita’s voice.

          Her blogs and twitter rantings indicate: 1) that she is totally OBSESSED with Teresa; and 2) that she is slowly but surely losing her MIND (Is it her past and continuing PRESENT behavior that is causing Karma to whip her ass and turn her brain into a psychotic frenzy?).

          Companies looking for persons to endorse their brands tend to shy away from people who appear to be INSANE. This is not good for any future business opportunities Jac may wish to pursue.

          Teresa and Joe Giudice probably went through and are continuing to go through severe hardship because of their OWN past BAD behavior which caused Karma to catch up with them.

          However, since the Season 3 Reunion, Teresa appears to me to have GROWN and to be firmly focused on her OWN business and her OWN family without worrying about anybody else’s backyard. She does not Twitter bash or re-tweet nasty tweets, and I do not see her getting her Mother, Father or members of Joe Giudice’s family to do this to the Laurita’s, Manzos and Gorga’s.

          Maybe Teresa was telling the truth about how her “Celebrity Apprentice” experience allowed her to get outside of herself and focus on the positive and on what is REALLY important in life and on giving back and helping when it comes to charitable causes. I’ve also read a couple of interviews where Teresa has said that she just constantly prays to be surrounded by God’s protection as she goes through the constant attacks and bashing by the other women and their followers (Maybe she is telling the truth, and, instead of twitter bashing, she DOES and HAS turned to GOD).

          If she is SINCERE, then I would say Teresa is now “cleaning up” her bad Karma and inviting good Karma to flow her way (Her books continue to be successful. She continues to be asked to endorse products that could provide her with an income stream. Her daughters all appear to be healthy and thriving. It looks like she has built and is continuing to build a “brand” that will provide income to her even after she is no longer an official Jersey Housewife.).

          Jac needs to STOP focusing on Teresa getting what she “deserves” if she is meaning and hoping that it is negativity flowing Teresa’s way — because ALL that is doing is causing negativity to flow JAC’s way. JMHO.

    • Sam says:

      I’ve found that in cases where one person is attacking another for no apparent reason, 99% of the time the reason is a deep-seated, enraging envy. So in this case my assumption is that Jacqueline is furious that someone as “undeserving” as Teresa is getting all the goodies (e.g., magazine covers, fans, healthy children), and this fury is causing her to strike out — and probably drink too much as well.

      • Rebecca says:

        Or maybe this is the real Jacqueline. She does have a history of physical violence. She probably abused the telephone after that when she got upset with someone. Now she has twitter.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Jac does indeed have a history of getting violent.

          People LOVE to call Teresa violent. Yes, Teresa DOES have a temper. We all know this. However, when she was enraged at Danielle, she did not get up and punch Danielle in the face. She took her anger out on an inanimate object: a TABLE.

          Now, now….I am not saying that Teresa would never GET physically violent with someone. I mean, she did give an interview where she said that if she ever found out for sure that Joe had a mistress, and she found out who she was that she would personally go up to the woman and PUNCH her in the FACE. She also says that she told Joe this more than once, and she said that Joe told her that he KNOWS she WOULD (I think she would too. *Shrug*).

          But JAC is not exactly MISS Non-Violence Mahatma Ghandi/Martin Luther King. She DOES have an arrest record for getting violent with an ex-boyfriend. She did also punch her own sister-in-law Caroline IN THE FACE (which is one of the few things I find redeeming about her lately).

          And, ALLEGEDLY, at the Reunion, she had to be physically restrained TWICE from going after Teresa physically (probably because Teresa told the TRUTH about Jac’s SORDID past. *Shrug*).

          I am now musing and wondering who would win a physical battle between Jac and Teresa. That’s a really tough one to call. BRAVO could make a whole lotta money if they set up a televised cage match between those two.

    • dch60 says:

      As far as Gia being on Twitter Teresa has said that it’s not for Gia’s personal use. It’s strictly for her business endeavors and Teresa and Gia’s manager control it just like Jill Z. controlled Bobby’s.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        I know they’ve said that, but Gia does have her own phone and has tweeted personal stuff on it (pics and whatnot) so I have a hard time believing that they are able to completely stop her from accessing her twitter account on her own.

  18. I don’t like the fact that Carole didn’t say anything to George about his Ramona comment. When people use language like this, either sexist, racist, or any other ist, they should be calmly told that it is inappropriate and will not be tolerated in my company!

    • California35 says:

      True, she wanted to “calm the situation” basically he is getting his way by some people, so then he thinks he is right. He isn’t. He should have NOT gone there to begin with.

        • Morning DAME !!!!
          and those were NOT Security Guards that “escorted” George out..They looked like servers who were giving drinks to the ladies… The SECURITY for that Bldg would be more professionally dressed I would think… Like with a jacket and such… Aviva sure does love to embellish her stories…
          BTW…My 82 yr Mom watched NY for me…the past few episodes so I could get her opinion about Chicklets….. WELL… according to Mom , who lives in PBCounty and is President of the Singles Club… She says that Chicklets behavior is TYPICAL among the older men who attend the club and their functions..Mom has PERV RADAR and has asked MANY of those types to leave functions or face having LEO escort them out… She also says that some of these dudes take their Cialis or Viagra and then drink before they come to the dances for J.I.C. they can get lucky they are good to go…. She once told me about a guy she wanted to DECK , but didnt when dancing to Lady in Red this guy decides it would be cute to start gyrating his …as she called it.. swollen pinky .. against her.. she was livid… come to find out that he had done this to others and they never told Mom about it…So she had them all file written statements and she held a Board Meeting and this man has been banned from the club..he is not even allowed as a guest of a member… She says that you can best believe that Chicklet has been on more than one occasion “escorted” from functions…winks
          Diva

          • Oh Diva….. swollen pinky…..hysterical! You and your mom are a hoot!
            I had an uncle that I was caretaker for when he reached late 60’s/early 70’s, before he passed, and he was the same way. He propositioned ME, and at first I was freaked. He had been the BEST uncle ever, we loved him very much, he was like a second father (the real one was not so good!)…but when he reached a certain age, he changed and became obsessed. It was unnerving to say the least, but I handled it with grace as best I could and he calmed down around me. It was rather sad to see him like that.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              That’s a good word for it. Sad.

              • Thanks Lainey (*waves*). I should add that, in no way was he like Aviva’s dad, entitled and cantankerous…..he was just a sweet old man who became obsessed with his “willy’ and couldn’t quite figure out why no one else was. I finally had to put him and my aunt (his wife who became ill also) in a retirement/convalescent home as I could not take care of them both as well as work and care for my family. The nurses and aids there were well trained in how to handle/care for the elderly and they loved him and saw him for who he was around that issue. They made it easier on us and on him! Bless his heart!

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  George may be ill too? He is being used as a character, on the show, by people who have a history of bad taste, and a habit of mocking others, bad behavior, when the production edit should be in question. I also think that Adiva is playing a role on the show. Because she is not an actress, she is coming off as a one note, Borderline/Hysteric. JMHO.

                  • I agree there is something not right there CAP. At his age, there can be so many physical, mental and emotional things going on, not to mention all at the same time. He doesn’t need to be on the show IMHO. Or his daughter.

      • klmh says:

        California I agree with you. She wanted to calm the situation. You do not calm the situation by reprimanding an older person, or anyone, because of their choice of words. You just step around it when someone is that angry.

        • klmh, Cali also stated that he is getting his way, so he thinks he’s right. Which is exactly why I think offensive language should be stopped. I did not say to put yourself in a dangerous situation. George was not threatening Carol in any way; she was in no danger if she told him she was offended by his words. Obviously, she wasn’t.

          • klmh says:

            It just wasn’t the time or the place, imo

            • Well then when do you stop inappropriate language? After you laugh at a racist joke or giggle at a sexisy comment? The lack of these social expectations are the precise reason meanness is rampant in our society. JMO

            • California35 says:

              She was probably worry that he would flip on her also if she corrected him or speak up about he called Ramona. Or she simply was on shock lol I mean WHO SAYS that lol. Also, I wish she had put him in the elevator, but not gone in with him.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                I think she was in shock as well. I know there have been occasions when someone has said something completely inappropriate or non-P.C. or so outrageous that I am momentarily so shocked/stunned that either my mouth flies open or I am in silence because my brain cannot quite process or believe what I have just heard.

          • California35 says:

            Yes, and that is too bad. Maybe she could have said something since she is so polite and he “likes” her. Maybe he would have taking it well coming from her. I mean the guy was trying to set a date with her right there lol. But she is just not comfortable speaking up, I guess.

            • klmh says:

              No, and as we’ve seen she doesn’t like confrontation, and I agree with her response. She is a kind person, I think.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I think that Carole knows that George is mentally ill. She see’s and feels it. I am not sure how you correct a sick person if you are not their caretaker or a member of the family. To me Ramona is headed down the same road as George and knows it and that maybe why she was very polite to him, until he became aggressive and grabbed her. Once some one touches you, game over. I really hope that his family wakes up and gets him some help. I am not holding my… JMHO.

                • You correct a senior the same way you correct a child that has special needs. (if he truly has them) They are told that is unacceptable behavior. You don’t let them do whatever they want. And that is being kind to them.

                  • klmh says:

                    Its a bit like Caroline and Jacq reprimanding Gia, except worse. He is a self made successful man who has been asked to leave by someone that he feels has been cruel to his daughter. He has always protected his daughter and always will, whether is be right or wrong. He was angry, obviously. Nothing, nothing could be accomplished by Carol shutting him down, especially on TV. C. weighs her options and acts in a mature fashion, unlike immediately raging, like most of these ladies. I guess if its right for you to correct someone that has been made to look a fool in a room full of women, then its your choice. I though think another reason was that she has a relationship with ADiva and smacking George verbally for his poor choice of words wouldn’t be appreciated or accepted by her. Lots of consequences…

                    • Called A Princess... says:

                      klmh, ITA with your assessment. I am not comfortable treating an elder person like a child. For me there would seem to be a different skill set involved. Maybe the problem is that we have a population that wants to treat the elderly like children? I have seen it. Not good. IMO.

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    Well if the person, in need, does not understand or the behavior does not change, then the disciplinarian is only making themselves fell better by correcting another person. I still do not have an answer that works for me regarding the chronic mental sufferer. JMHO.

                  • kmhl, I think you’re a b#tchy white trash turd! But don’t correct or challenge me on that comment or my word choices. I am a very well educated, highly successful woman of class, who has been protected & have never been taught right nor wrong among my fabulous circle of friends. Nothing can be accomplished by your reprimand because I am obviously upset because you dared to embarrass me and if you dare to call me out on my words all my good friends will rally against you so it will not be for your benefit!

                    • klmh says:

                      That’s ok Dame. Im not going to challenge you, because your opinion of me isn’t important, and I consider the source. Not a problem at all…

  19. Powell says:

    Reading those texts makes my head swim. I’m not trying to be funny, mean or sarcastic. Jac’s personality goes up & down w/in seconds in those texts. It’s like Cybill & Eve White/Eve Black. Chris better be looking seriously at his wife. Jac’ said she was depressed but something else may be going on. It’s scary.

  20. Christi44 says:

    I am sorry if this has been discussed and I missed it…Is anyone else surprised by the poll results in regards to Tre and the fashion show? I thought it would be higher in favor of Tre given the comments here. It makes me wonder if someone (group of people) sat around all day and repeatedly voted. Is there any way to tell if there were more votes cast than normal?

    • I don’t remember how many days I put each poll up so it’s hard to compare – but NJ polls always get more votes. There isn’t a way to see if most votes came from one or two people from what I can see – because I was curious about that too.

      The votes are never higher than blog hits – but we’ve had 2 polls now that were pretty different from the way the comments lean.

      • klmh says:

        Are people voting more than one time? That could certainly make a difference.

        • melthehound says:

          I’m sure there are, KLMH. Of course, I can’t prove it but the very fact that one CAN leads me to believe that they DO. It isn’t a country altering poll though, it’s about a TV show so either way, I can live with the results even if, I don’t believe them 😉 .

    • VV says:

      Yes, it’s odd. However, is clear Teresa is supported by many here. You can’t deny that. Who knows maybe Mel supporters were multiple voting were told to come here to vote.

      • Perhaps those that don’t like Theresa are not posting because of the intensity of the comments by those who do. I don’t comment on NJ because, well I don’t watch it, but after I read the blog I just don’t want to get into the fray.

        Have a great day; off to get ready for Buckeye football!

      • stellastars21 says:

        My theory has always been that it was people voting who don’t comment. When we lost Lynn there were dozens of posts by people who said they read everyday but never commented. Perhaps they participate in polls since all that takes is a click of the mouse. I dunno.

        • I think there’s a lot of that going on as well. A poll is an easy way to express your opinion – especially if you’re worried people will disagree with you and you don’t want to deal with the conflict. We’ve also had a lot of new people reading if I’m interpreting the click throughs wordpress shows behind the scenes. Jezzibel put a link to one of the articles (Lies, Manipulation and Viewer Distrust) and we got hundreds of clicks.

        • TexasTart says:

          Stella, that is a solid theory and the fact people who are not fans of Lynn’s place can also vote as much as they like. Oh I’m sure we all enjoy the polls for fun but they’ll never be fluid with the pulse of fans of this site until it’s one vote per IP.

        • PJ says:

          Oh come on it was Jac. She sat at her computer voting and tweeting and texting till she finished her box of wine.

      • Rebecca says:

        I’m not surprised. I don’t think people here are as pro-Teresa as they are anti-insult our intelligence.

    • The Tin Man says:

      I cannot tell a lie (okay, I can, but I won’t today); every time I clicked on the blog and saw the poll I voted that Teresa was the worst of the lot. While I did not sit around all day and do this, I did do it “multiple” times. Is that not allowed? I thought we were encouraged to vote as many times as we wanted to. Was I wrong? Gee, I suddenly feel so powerful and a bit corrupt, and I kind of like it. (btw, I don’t like Melissa either, but I dislike Teresa the most.)

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        lol! Hey at least you’re honest! I don’t think there is a rule about how many times to vote so it’s all good.

      • lovemamaearth says:

        I voted more than once on the Bravo question. In fact at one point I saw someone say to refresh the page and that you could vote again. Thanks to all for the fun reads and the comments. ╫╟╖A╥╖K╙╢O╙╜☛ ├♥‿♥┤ ╫╟╖A╥╖K╙╢O╙╜

      • Tin Man, I admit, I did the same. But not being a wordsmith, contrary to my name, I may have misunderstood too. I think I’ll change my name to Maladroit Malapropisms.

      • Nope – nothing wrong with that. The polls are set up so you can vote as many times as you want. That’s because that’s the way I like polls to be set up when I’m voting. If anyone wants me to do a poll that’s limit to one vote per IP just send me the Q and A and I’ll post it and set it up that way. I thought the Danielle poll would have her supporters clicking all day – but sadly no. It got the “average” amount of votes as the rest of the polls.

      • BB says:

        I don’t sit and vote all day long either, but I will vote more than once. Usually when I log on.

    • Constance says:

      Not surprised at all.

    • Christi44 says:

      I voted a few times too. Voting multiple times isn’t quite what I meant. I think that is all good. I just had the impression from reading comments that the majority (at least of posters) were very pro-Teresa. I think there is a difference between voting multiple (even dozens) of times and voting hundreds or times. Does that make sense?

      • lovemamaearth says:

        It was a good topic Christi imo. LOL at Dame’s Maladroit Malapropisms. —Dame is so much easier to type.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        I think a lot of Tre haters come here to see what is being written (even castmembers) but never comment. They probably vote. I can see Melissa’s sisters voting here, lol.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I imagine that’s true. I also imagine them doing a long drawn out witch laugh when they’re voting.

  21. Happy Birthday Plainsviewsue! I hope it is everything you wish it to be!

    NJ…just SMH at how sad and troublesome. That is all.

    Ramonacoaster…..you outdid yourself with the NY blog recaps today. OMG…..how to change a light bulb? Epic!! Loved every word!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      RamonaCoaster: I agree with mardrag great HW comments!!! – and your ending “hand her your face cream” was golden.

    • ramonacoaster says:

      You gotta laugh when you see these fights and all around craziness.

      Mar drag, a month ago I lost my cousin and I was looking for something to say on her sister’s Facebook. I went to your inspiration to find, well…inspiration. I found the words I wanted to say and it is always so hard to do that. Thanks. She died on a trek to Mt Kiliminjaro 2 days before her 29th birthday. She was supposed to take a picture holding up a happy birthday banner at the peak.

      • Powell says:

        I’m sorry you lost your cousin Ramonacoaster.

      • trudie says:

        I am so sorry for your loss.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        So sorry for your loss Ramona Coaster, she sounds like she was a really cool person. So very young. Again, I’m sorry.

      • Ramonacoaster, I’m so sorry to hear that your cousin died so young climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. My husband & son climbed it a few years back. Son had no problem, but my husband wasn’t doing so well. Thank God one of the guides talked him into turning back down the mountain, he would have died from altitude sickness if he had continued. Deepest sympathy to you & your cousin’s family.

        • ramonacoaster says:

          It’s scary, altitude sickness can strike the most experienced climbers. She went up too fast. Took the 4.5 day trek. I hope what happened to her doesn’t happen to anyone else.

      • ramonacoaster….i am so very sorry for your loss! And at such a young age. My heart goes out to you and her family…and so do prayers. You must ride this wave of grief, but as all waves do, they eventually reach the shore. Wrapping a hug around you!

        And, I am incredibly humbled that you would find comfort in my words, truly, but I am so glad they were there for you. It is the reason I write them, and I am glad they fulfill their purpose. ((((ramonacoaster))))

      • dch60 says:

        That’s so sad ramonacoaster. so very sorry. I’m not surprised you found something on Mardrag’s site. It is what it says it is… inspirational.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I’m so sorry for your loss, Ramonacoaster. (((Ramonacoaster)))

        You again did a GREAT job commenting on the blogs too. 😉

  22. plainviewsue says:

    Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes. I know I haven’t been commenting much lately, but I read the blog faithfully everyday!!

    To all the bloggers, you are all doing an outstanding job!!!

    Just hope we all survive Part One of the reunion!!!

    Twitter was on fire yesterday. I don’t hate Jac; I feel tremendously sorry for her. She needs help. No joke. Her obsession with Teresa is scary. Chris needs to step in.

    How will Andy and Bravo feel if something serious happens? There is no way Jac will be asked back. She is way 2 much of a liability.

    Mel & her sisters make me sick to my stomach. I cant wait until NJ is over.

    • Powell says:

      Sue I said the sane thing. Jac needs help & it’s Chris’ job to see that she gets it. I don’t know if he’s in denial but he’d better get w/the program cause his family needs help.

      • dch60 says:

        I guess Jac won’t be getting an epiphany at this end of this reunion like she did season two. Maybe because if what I read is true, Teresa revealed that Jac was a stripper before she got a chance to try and stop her. Although Jac probably thinks that just makes Teresa look bad “see? she lied about it with Melissa and now she’s doing it to me!!” Meanwhile, I heard that Melissa had already known she was going to get “set up” and that’s why she didn’t deny knowing Angelo. What I don’t understand is, if all she did is bartend, why didn’t she just say “yes, I used to bartend for you.” I think she was a dancer… although I still say who the hell cares? yawn.

    • JustDee says:

      Happy Birthday Sue!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I said it below, but I will say it again here: Happy Birthday, Sue!! 😀

  23. I went looking for something “cute” to post for plainviewsue for her Birth Day and came across this from last year….MEMORIES !!!

    http://lynnnchicago.com/?p=1661

    • plainviewsue says:

      OMG, Designdiva, you are the best. I remember that day, waking up to so many wonderful birthday posts from friends that I met thru this wonderful blog. I guess my birthday was also the day after the infamous fashion show!!

      Times have truly changed, cos I was not a fan of Teresa’s through season 3. It was the tweets of this particular day and the reunion airing of season 3 that turned a page for me.

      I believe that Teresa had nothing to do with the events of the fashion show; I believed her tweets and I began to see the lunacy of one Jacqueline Laurita.

      Love you all 🙂

    • Ah Diva, the good old days! I was still doing birthdays; I don’t know enough about Bravo shows to even comment now. Looks like we both got a life
      😉
      Love, hugs, peace.

    • Boobah says:

      Cool link…sad but fun to re-read it. Thanks for posting that.

  24. Putchka says:

    Hey Plainview. Happy B-Day from a fellow Long Islander!

    • Boobah says:

      Hi Putchka, I’m a fellow Long Islander as well. I’m waaaayyyy out East.

      • Putchka says:

        Hi Boobah, how far east? Hamptons, Montauk? I grew up in Patchogue/Bellport. Great place way back when. Smack in the middle between NYC and the best beaches in the world!

        • Boobah says:

          I’m across the bay from the Hamptons. Farm and Wine country. I would just state the name of my town but it is soooo tiny that for some reason it worries me to put it out on the interwebz.
          I enjoyed shopping at a curtain store in Patchogue but I think it closed down. We also go the the Patchogue Theater. They have very good plays/shows! I had family in the Bellport many years ago. Are you still in that area? I agree that area is the best of both worlds – close to the beaches and the city.

  25. California35 says:

    Ok, loundry is still going, and I am done with my cleaning. I culd do more, but I got to get ready to see if I can make it to the bank on before it closes. Since I didn’t want to ruch this morning, nowI am going to rush. Do banks close at noon or at 2 on Saurdays? Does anyone know? Thanks 🙂

  26. WindyCityWondering says:

    Anybody know why Jac did not do her “marriage vow renewal” storyline this year – her intro shows her trying on a headpiece…..we know that Teresa did a magazine feature of renewing her vows but that is a tabloid not the show.

    • Powell says:

      No but maybe because of Nicholas.

    • RealhouseWifeva says:

      I think because Teresa did it, from what Teresa wrote in one of her blogs once. At least that’s what I got from it. That Jac was upset when she saw Teresa did it for the mag since she was gonna do it for the show. You know, another very important reason for their rivalry. Lol

    • WCW they film so much that doesn’t make it on tv. Bravo will bring all that unaired film out one day, sorry to say. “The Lost Footage: Jac & Chris vs. Teresa & Juicy – Marriage Vow Renewal Wars.” Or maybe “Lauren’s Journey: The Early Years, Engaged to Vito, then Cafface Owner & After the Lapband, on the Couch Snarling at Reunion Season 4.”

      How about “Caroline Manzo thru the years: from Teresa’s BFF to Angry Chuckie.”

      Ugghhh! Bravo can swill this garbage footage for years to come.

  27. Powell says:

    As we all know there are a lot of other blogs out hear and we read many of them, but I think because of who our dear Lynn was, always doing her best to be fair to all the HWs & now how NMD & the gang have carried on Lynn’s vision I truly believe that the HWs come here to read our opinions. Like RealhousewifeVA said T posted her blog on Twitter not long after RealhousewifeVA posted it here. It seems like the HWs trust this blog. Do you all get that feeling?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      We rarely have rabid hate fests and most are very respectful and articulate posters so of all the blogs this usually is an easy read.

      • TexasTart says:

        This blog is as respectful as they come, which is what brings me here – although I rarely comment, I must say what a wonderful job NMD and crew have done to keep it alive. RealhousewifeVA, and anyone who is brave enough to go in RealityTea and not get smacked around verbally or get a virus on your computer should count themselves fortunate!
        Happy Birthday plainviewsue!

    • I think Jacqueline read it a few days ago because she blocked me on twitter. The only tweets I’ve sent to her are “read the blog” type of tweets. It actually made me a little sad. I’d have been happy to stop sending her the links if she had said something, because I know Lynn really liked her.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Lynn really did like Jac, it was evident in her blogs. So I’m going to assume Jac liked Lynn, too.

        • Sam says:

          But in my opinion, the Jac of today isn’t the Jac of back then. That Jac is gone, and I’m not sure she’ll ever return.

      • Powell says:

        I hate when these Bravoleberties block us. They “say” they like hearing from their fans. Only on their terms though.

          I do not think that Jax seems that loyal to anyone, including her own daughter. That is very telling. I do not think that because Lynn liked Jax that Jax like Lynn. She may have thought she found another way to get her message out about, that Teresa, and those Guidice’s. JMHO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            As usual, you have point.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I agree. Jax may have seen Lynn as a means to an end: hurting Dina and Teresa by being the “secret source” regarding damage information about them (even if the information was a lie or a figment of Jac’s SICK imagination).

    I went to Amazon and looked up Caroline’s book. I bet she’d love to see this on her book’s page:

    What Other Items Do Customers Buy After Viewing This Item?
    Fabulicious!: Fast & Fit: Teresa’s Low-Fat, Super-Easy Italian Recipes by Teresa Giudice Paperback

    So she’s sort of indirectly promoting and helping to sell all of Teresa’s books. LOL!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I don’t know why, but this made me laugh out loud.

      I once commented on Caroline’s blog when the show started making Lauren’s weight a topic of discussion. I recommended that Caroline look into buying “Skinny Italian” and “Fabulicious Fast & Fit” for Lauren, as it might be helpful. I told her that if she asked Teresa nicely, Teresa might A) give her a discount and/or B) even autograph it personally for her and Lauren,

      Needless to say, my comment NEVER made it through on Caroline’s BRAVO blog.

      I wonder why.

    Re Aviva’s blog:
    When defending her father she says, “And NEVER would he throw anyone out of his home, vacation spot or party.”
    Yet, didn’t she want Carole to throw Sonja and Ramona out of the house at St. Barths?

  30. dch60 says:

    Two theories about the texts: I had mentioned above that the name that blacked out is “Cat” which is what they call that producer. Jac mentions that she feels bad about the phone call, then Teresa says the fact that Cat set her up at the fashion show nothing would surprise her. Jac replies “none of us are safe” from a bad edit “and just take the money and live your life” take the money they make for being housewives.

    Also, I believe the comment about Gabrielle was a set-up for what she texts later – “Just kidding. It’s a JOKE – get it”? Meaning that Teresa said nasty things about people in her book and then called it a joke.

    It’s never going to end, is it? I truly hope Jac doesn’t come back next year and that info is correct. When you think about it… they had to keep her from last year’s reunion because they could trust her not to spill the beans about season 4. I don’t think they were happy about that. However, season 4 had already been filmed. It may look to some like she wasn’t fired over her season 3 reunion antics. Bravo, I’m quite sure, follows twitter and know that she’s a loose cannon. I don’t think she was asked back but she’ll say she was but decided to focus on her family and her son’s autism.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jac, Caroline and Melissa all throw out there some really mean and nasty stuff – and it sticks. Jac is mean and calling her being mean a joke is wrong. Her little drunky rant at Melissa’s launch party about how much the Guidice’s owe, etc – not a joke. She is hurtful, spiteful and mean. No way would she be asked back – she is not a good employee.

    • VV says:

      Uni, why do you think the name is Cat and no Kim?

      • Sam says:

        I think because of the next part, about nobody being safe. It makes more sense to me too that it’s the producers, not Kim — especially since they typically refer to Kim using a last initial, which means extra letters.

        • VV says:

          That is interesting. Why would Cat be at the reunion? We know Kim D was and that is why I thought it was her. I think they Jac or Teresa use the initials D & G on the show only not on their everyday life, but then what do I know…

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Cat had to set up both the salon visit and the fashion show. Jac saying the text was from a mutual friend was an untruth IMO and Kim was a pawn (willing) in the set up.

    • melthehound says:

      Joke or not she invoked the name of a 7 or 8 year old little girl. Completely unforgivable and NOTHING like jokes in a cookbook about Manzo and her ‘babies’.

    • Boobah says:

      Detox – I have been meaning to touch base with you after I read that you weren’t feeling well…I am so happy that you are on the mend! I hope your mom is feeling better also. ((Detox))

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Thanks so much, Boobah!

        Mama Detox and Middle-Aged Detox are slowly but surely on the mend. I white knuckled it and prevented myself from taking Lortab last night even though I was miserable and could not get to sleep until 4 this morning. I woke up at 11 a.m. today to rain.

        My Mom thinks that it may indeed be a fractured rib (as opposed to a bruised lung) because, allegedly, fractured/broken bones and/or arthritic joints ache when there is a weather change. I never used to believe her when she said that, but it just might be true.

        The good news is that I did not need ANY pain meds today. I just felt/feel slightly uncomfortable, and I can live with that.

        Papa Detox has cataract surgery on one eye Monday. He just told me that he scheduled the other eye for 2 weeks after THAT Monday. So, I’ve got to stick around here for at least another 6 weeks.

        Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!! 😉 Oh, the joys of being the childless, spinster daughter who must be responsible for the aging parents! My inheritance better be good (Just Kidding! I have a feeling they are both going to outlive me, which I actually would not mind. *Shrug*).

        • Boobah says:

          Omg Detox! That is so funny – you sure have a way of putting a humorous spin on things. I feel like I shouldn’t be chuckling because you have just been through such a painful ordeal. Seriously, I am glad you getting away from the pain but last night must have been awful.
          I’ll tell ya what – that weather thing is sooo true! My back has made me quite the meteorologist…it sucks but I know whether or not I’ll need an umbrella!

          DetoxDad is smart to get both eyes done from what I understand. My FIL is doing the same thing and said his vision is better than ever.

          Six weeks is a long time. You might want to save some of those pills! 😉

    • plainviewsue says:

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Thanks, Sue! And Happy Birthday again!!

        I think I will take 2 or 3 Lortabs tomorrow and tomorrow night just so I can watch the Reunion in an altered state that will prevent me from losing my voice or smashing my t.v. by throwing my humidifier, shoes and/or big-ass, heavy purse (filled with everything by the kitchen sink) at it (Big purses make me feel secure)!

    I was just going through and cleaning up some word documents and came across this joke. I probably saw it on Lynn’s blog and saved it into a word document. It’s funny so I decided to share with those who hadn’t seen it before.

    An atheist was seated next to a little girl on an airplane and
    he turned to her and said,
    “Do you want to talk? Flights go quicker
    if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger.”
    The little girl, who had just started to read her book,
    replied to the total stranger, “What would you want to talk about?”
    ” Oh, I don’t know,” said the atheist. “How about why there is
    no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no life after death?” as he smiled
    smugly.
    “OK,” she said. “Those could be interesting topics but let me
    ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat
    the same stuff – grass. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a
    cow turns out a flat patty, but a horse produces clumps.
    Why do you suppose that is?”
    The atheist, visibly surprised by the little girl’s intelligence, thinks
    about it and says, “Hmmm, I have no idea.”
    To which the little girl replies, “Do you really feel qualified
    to discuss why there is no God, or no Heaven or Hell, or no
    life after death, when you don’t know shit?”
    And then she went back to reading her book.

  38. BB says:

    Blast from the past. I save some of the dumest stuff. Remember Dana-Pam Wilkey’s ex-boyfriend John Flynn who didn’t want his name ever mentioned in public because he was not a public figure and people made up names for him? I found these on a word document.

    HOW TO BE A GRACIOUS BITCH (Sorry for the “B” word)
    Jennifer’s wedding day was fast approaching.
    Nothing could dampen her excitement – not even her parent’s nasty divorce.
    Her mother had found the PERFECT dress to wear, and would be the best-dressed mother-of-the-bride ever!
    A week later, Jennifer was horrified to learn that her father’s new, young wife had bought the exact same dress as her mother!
    Jennifer asked her father’s new young wife to exchange it, but she refused.
    “Absolutely not! I look like a million bucks in this dress, and I’m wearing it,” she replied.
    Jennifer told her mother who graciously said, ”Never mind sweetheart. I’ll get another dress. After all, it’s your special day.”
    A few days later, they went shopping, and did find another gorgeous dress for her mother. When they stopped for lunch, Jennifer asked her mother, ”Aren’t you going to return the other dress? You really don’t have another occasion where you could wear it.”
    Her mother just smiled and replied, ”Of course I do, dear…..I’m wearing it to the rehearsal dinner the night BEFORE the wedding.”

      BEST DRUNK STORY OF THE MONTH

      A drunken man walks into a biker bar, sits down at the bar and orders a drink. Looking around, he sees three men sitting at a corner table. He gets up, staggers to the table, leans over, looks the biggest, meanest, biker in the face and says:

      ‘I went by your grandma’s house today and I saw her in the hallway buck-naked! Man, she is onnnne fine looking woman!’

      The biker looks at him and doesn’t say a word. His buddies are confused, because he is one bad biker and would fight at the drop of a hat.

      The drunk leans on the table again and says:

      ‘I got it on with your grandma and she is good, the best I ever had!’

      The biker’s buddies are starting to get really mad but the biker still says nothing.

      The drunk leans on the table one more time and says,

      ‘I’ll tell you something else, boy,
      Your grandma liked it!’

      At this point the biker stands up, takes the drunk by the shoulders looks him square in the eyes and says………………..

      ‘Grandpa………. Go home!’

    The Church Gossip
    Mildred, the church gossip and self-appointed arbiter of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose in the other members’ private lives. Church members were unappreciative of her activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

    She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his pickup truck parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon.

    She commented to George and others that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.

    George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny; he said nothing.

    Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s house… and left it there all night!

    3.
    It’s considered poor taste to take a cooler to church.
    4.
    If you have to vacuum the bed, it is time to change the sheets.
    5.
    Even if you’re certain that you are included in the will, it is still considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.
    Dining Out
    1.
    If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label.
    2.
    Avoid throwing bones and food scraps on the floor as the restaurant may not have dogs.
    ENTERTAINING IN YOUR HOME
    1.
    A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.
    2.
    Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are.
    PERSONAL HYGIENE
    1.
    While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one’s OWN truck keys
    2.
    Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good money.
    3.
    Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman’s jewelry and alter the taste of finger foods.
    DATING (OUTSIDE THE FAMILY)
    1.
    Always offer to bait your date’s hook, especially on the first date.
    2.
    Be aggressive. Let her know you’re interested: ‘I’ve been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the bathroom wall two years ago.’
    3.
    Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00 PM; others might say ‘Monday.’ If the latter is the answer, it is the man’s responsibility to get her to school on time.
    4.
    Always have a positive comment about your date’s appearance, such as, ‘Ya’ll sure don’t sweat much for a fat gal.’
    WEDDINGS
    1.
    Livestock, usually, is a poor choice for a wedding gift.
    2.
    Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you shot.
    3.
    For the groom, at least, rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create too sporty an appearance.
    4.
    Though uncomfortable, say ‘yes’ to socks and shoes for this special occasion.
    5.
    It is not appropriate to tell the groom how good his wife is in the sack.
    DRIVING ETIQUETTE
    1.
    Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded, and the deer is in sight.
    2.
    When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way.
    3.
    Never tow another car using panty hose and duct tape.
    4.
    When sending your wife/girlfriend down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer.
    5.
    Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.
    6.
    Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.
    TWO REASONS WHY IT IS HARD TO SOLVE A REDNECK MURDER:
    1.
    All the DNA is the same.
    2.
    There are no dental records

    Do you need a laugh??

    What Religion is Your Bra?
    A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy’s
    and shyly walked up to
    the woman behind the counter and said,
    “I’d like to buy a bra for my wife. ”
    “What type of bra?”
    asked the clerk.

    “Type?” inquires the man, “There’s more than one type?”

    “Look around,”
    said the saleslady,
    as she showed a sea of bras in every shape, size, color
    and material imaginable.

    “Actually,
    even with all of this variety,
    there are really only
    four types of bras to choose from .”
    Relieved, the man asked
    about the types.
    The saleslady replied:
    “There are the Catholic,
    the Salvation Army,
    the Presbyterian,
    and the Baptist types.
    Which one would you prefer?”

    Now totally befuddled,
    the man asked about
    the differences between them.
    The Saleslady responded,
    “It is all really quite simple. ..

    The Catholic type
    Supports the masses;

    The Salvation Army type
    lifts the fallen;

    The Presbyterian type
    keeps them staunch and upright; and

    The Baptist
    makes mountains out of mole hills.”

    Have you ever wondered why A, B, C, D, DD, E, F, G, and H are the letters used
    to define bra sizes?
    If you have wondered why,
    but couldn’t figure out
    what the letters stood for,
    It is about time
    you became informed!

    (A} Almost Boobs…
    {B} Barely there…
    {C} Can’t Complain!…
    {D} Dang!…
    {DD} Double dang!……
    {E} Enormous!…
    {F} Fake…
    {G} Get a Reduction…
    {H} Help me, I’ve fallen
    And I can’t get up!…

    They forgot the German bra:

  48. JOEYS CONFESSION….

    Bless me Father, for I have sinned.
    I have been with a loose girl’.

    The priest asks, ‘Is that you, little Joey Pagano ?

    ‘Yes, Father, it is.’

    ‘And who was the girl you were with?’

    ‘I can’t tell you, Father. I don’t want to ruin her reputation’.

    “Well, Joey, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later
    so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?

    ‘I cannot say.’

    ‘Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?’

    ‘I’ll never tell.’

    ‘Was it Nina Capelli?’

    ‘I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.’

    ‘Was it Cathy Piriano?’

    ‘My lips are sealed.’

    ‘Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?’

    ‘Please, Father, I cannot tell you.’

    The priest sighs in frustration.
    ‘You’re very tight lipped, and I admire that.
    But you’ve sinned and have to atone.
    You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months.
    Now you go and behave yourself.’

    Joey walks back to his pew,
    and his friend Franco slides over and whispers,
    ‘What’d you get?’

    ‘Four months vacation and five good leads.’

  53. Orson says:

    One bright and sunny day, Grasshopper came
    home from school, dropped his backpack, and
    was just about to run outside to meet his friends.

    “Where are you going?” asked his mom.
    “Out to meet some friends, ” said Grasshopper
    “Do you have any homework due tomorrow?” asked his mom.
    “Just one small thing for History, I did the rest in class.”
    “Okay,” said Mom Grasshopper. “Be Back at six for dinner.”

    Grasshopper hung out with his friends,
    came home promptly at six, ate his dinner,
    then took out his History homework.

    His mom read the assignment and freaked out.

    “Rewrite twelve Greek myths as Broadway musicals.
    Write music for songs. Design and build all sets.
    Sew original costumes for each production.”

    “How long have you known about this assignment?”
    asked Mom Grasshopper, trying not to scream.

    “I don’t know,” said Grasshopper.

    Moral:

    There are plenty of things to say to calm
    a hopping mad Grasshopper mom.
    “I don’t know,” is not one of them.
