Teresa’s FU Blog / Let’s Chat Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 1

It’s Reunion Time! by NMD and Photos by Boston

Filming had just about ended for the Real Housewives of New Jersey when the Season 3 Reunion aired.  That means the Teresa has had essentially no contact with the rest of the cast for the past year.  What seems to be clear is that while they were filming S4 they were watching S3 air – and getting more and more frustrated with each other.  But they couldn’t bring it  up on S4 – so their excuses for being mad were unsatisfying to viewers.  They weren’t allowed to say, “I’m mad because you trashed me in your talking head interview,” last night when we’re not supposed to be reminded about this strange timeline.

Compound that with Jacqueline Laurita coming to grips with learning that her son had autism.  My suspicion is that Jacqueline really needed a friend and Teresa didn’t fulfill that role.  Those situations are challenging on friendships during the best of circumstances – especially with both ladies having children of a similar age.  Jacqueline was going through a lot, but couldn’t tell the viewers how she was feeling since she didn’t want to talk about the diagnosis.  I certainly have a lot of empathy for her situation.

It seems clear to me from reading the text exchange between Jacqueline and Teresa that they both would have liked to make up, or at least reach a truce, but someone kept stirring the pot.

There are a whole lot of someones stirring the pot in New Jersey.  There is a long cast of supporting characters, including producers of the show, that all have their own agendas.  All of the cast have their owns agendas as well – to win viewer support and sell their products.

Teresa Giudice knew going into the reunion that she didn’t have a friend in the room.  Danielle Staub was in a similar situation in Season 2.

How will Teresa handle herself?  

Will the other ladies be able to grab a little bit of the spotlight?  

And will this be a ratings bust or  boom?

Not to put words in the mouth of Caroline Manzo  – but ….  well Boston did put words in the mouth of Caroline Manzo …

___________________________________________

But first … Remember Back When Teresa Giudice wrote her own Blogs?  Here’s a trip down memory lane…  NoMoreDrama

Cotext:  Bravo Blog – midway through Season 2 when the news of bankruptcy, etc. was just breaking.

Felicitations!  Teresa takes a different approach and focuses on the positive.  Jun 8, 2010

Unlike my other blogs, I’m going to try something different this week by only saying nice, classy things.

Caroline’s family restaurant, the Brownstone, is a fabulous facility. It is so beautiful. The Manzo family works really hard there. You should have your wedding there.

Kim G. was so nice to throw a birthday party for Danielle. Their make-up artists did a great job.

How pretty are Dina’s big blue eyes? She is the best godmother ever!

And Caroline was so sweet to make dinner for us. It was super delicious. I loved her pink chef’s uniform.

That baby of Jacqueline’s is so cute, I could just hug him all day! I love love love them both! I love her whole family! I love everyone!

Even though Ashley is only 18, I think she is doing a pretty great job living on her own, making her own decisions, and she is as pretty as her mama.

Really excited to see Jacqueline wearing one of my “Happy Wife, Happy Life” t-shirts during the episode. I sell them on my Web site. They are soft and very comfortable.

So I heard that Bravo is editing out all the drama and only showing the Housewives smiling, vacuuming, and petting kittens from now on. (I kid.) I can’t wait to watch next week, can you?

Seems positive enough – doesn’t it.  What a sweet girl she is.  Now let me condense it down a little …

Felicitations!  

Unlike my other blogs, I’m going to try something different this week by only saying nice, classy things.

That’s one way to say nice, classy things Teresa.  What the heck is wrong with Melissa, Caroline and Jacqueline that they’ve made people defend this woman!!

And with that

    Remember when there used to be nothing on TV on Sunday nights? Wow.

  2. Powell says:

    Haha. He we go! It’s almost the bewitching hour. 😉

    • A says:

      Watching social media take of last nj episode. Any body language catch t’s crazy blinking after saying in her talking head that she had nothing to do with the set up? If that doesn’t confirm her lie, I don’t know what does!

  3. Powell says:

    Did you notice boston didn’t give Kathy anything to say. 🙂

  4. Boy..the bottom of Lauren’s shoes are NASTY !!!!
    The HIGH tea looks Delish !!!!!
    REVENGE TONITE….. then 666 PARK AVE…. then repeat Bar Rescue !!
    Dont give a frogs fart about jersey…OVER IT….

    Diva

    • chismosa says:

      If those are Louboutins- (if not, they are fake)– they scuff very very easily at the bottom. Remember back at one of the NY reunions, i think Bethenny’s last one– Jill had her red bottoms all taped up to prevent further scuffing. It looked so odd on tv when she crossed her legs.
      It’s a natural process unfortunately with these crazy-expensive shoes.

  5. After a 4 hour break, she’s back on twitter.

    Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita
    Going to @melissagorgas for some homemade apple pie!!! Wooohoo!!! I just LOVE the fall!!! XOXO!

  6. Powell says:

    HA NMD! Did anyone get Ts blog when Lynn posted it? I sure didn’t. Very subtle T.

  7. VV says:

    Boston, hilarious! What’s her name? didn’t get a caption. 😀 too funny.

  8. MamaZ says:

    I remember that blog! I sent a comment that spelled out F U T O O and Bravo posted it, LOL.

    Anyone watching Amazing Race? Beakman

  9. VV says:

    Carole Radziwill and Joey Marco exchange tweets:

    “@joegorga: Thats what i enjoy to make u laugh RT @CaroleRadziwill: @joegorga I knew if I followed you you would make me laugh one day. #samehumor”

    No surprise here. Carole is Andy’s friend…

  10. AZGirl says:

    Ok…here we go. I am going to try and watch but I may skip due to Boardwalk Empire. I check in.

  11. VV says:

    One of Melissa’s sisters tweeted early today that one of his cousins lost her battle with breast cancer. I saw Bitter Clown tweet sending condolences. Wonder why Melissa didnt mention anything and why Jac was so upbeat on her tweet about visiting the Gorgas.

  12. chismosa says:

    hi everyone hope you all are having a good weekend, i’ll check in once NY airs, and yes, i hope no one mentions Amazing Race spoilers tonight as i am dvr’ing right now.

    I have to go get mentally prepared for Homeland tonight, followed by NJ Reunion, followed lastly by Dexter– all in that order. Taking deep breaths now…..;)

    • cocfarm says:

      No spoilers. Your tv plans are almost identical to mine but in a different order. Drive safely!

      • chismosa says:

        no, DVR-ing, not driving, ha ha ha!! thanks cocfarm! Imagine i’m posting on here while driving that is hysterical. But hell if i could, why not?

  13. chismosa says:

    Boston (or whoever did it) thank you so much for the Lauren captions up above, the Rosie O’Donnell one is HYSTERICAL. Loving it!

  14. chismosa says:

    Trying to comment with a different name— just testing….

  15. boston02127 says:

    A tweet from someone I don’t know that’s at the Manzo’s house. And there’s Caroline hanging out with all her friends again.

    Pajama partyyy! RT @ErinAndrews The “new” Sunday Funday @Laurenmanzo @AlbieManzo @chris_manzo @chrissyteigen http://lockerz.com/s/247835772

  16. BB says:

    Amazing Race Down, next is Revenge!

  17. VV says:

    Just for the record. I hate Caroline Manzo! Old hag!!!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Caroline is what she is and she makes it very difficult to like her or listen to her constant unasked for “advice”. I get a dull buzzing roar in my hears when she starts talking!

    • kendo says:

      Apparently she’s Jacqueline’s voice tonight, she’s answering every question for her!
      STFU Clown!

  18. JustDee says:

    Andy Cohen ‏@BravoAndy
    #RHONJ REUNION – The view to my left of @Teresa_Giudice @melissagorga @KathyWakilehttp://say.ly/Eww4gY9

  19. dickens says:

    I wouldn’t miss the reunion for anything, but I’m actually dreading it and feeling a little sick the closer it gets.
    What mostly burns me up is knowing about Rhodes Scholar Lauren bringing flashcards to test Teresa on her word knowledge. So underhanded. What makes it worse is that Lauren has proven to be one of the most ignorant on the show. It makes me mad before the show even starts.

  20. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ok just a few things while we wait…
    Why did Melissa keep telling Kim D to relax and calm down but never told Joe to relax, calm down STFU?
    Does anyone else get angry when a woman wants to see her man fight? I HATE IT-I met my husband when we were in our twenties-he was a bartender-BIG GUY-football player in college. I have gone out of my way our whole life together to make sure he NEVER had to defend me. People fighting-actual fist fighting-make me sick. Violence makes me physically ill. Melissa almost encourages it-it is so gross. Of all the things I have seen these women do-riling up your husband to fight is the worst.
    That’s all…I feel better now

    • Nancy says:

      I bet he’s taking steroids and that’s why his anger goes through the roof. IMHO

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The fact that his sister didn’t want him there because of his fighting tendencies and going to jail but his wifey didn’t care speaks volumes to me.

  21. boston02127 says:

    Ahh, b/f gone 2 work. (mr crabby pants 2 nite) Sloppy Joe & celery & chips. I’m ready.

  22. Iowagirl says:

    Just got back from the Ryder cup where the Europeans kicked our butts and my hotel doesn’t have Bravo. WHAT A CRAPPY DAY!

  23. VV says:

    Too bad Caroline. She was on the cover of a mother magazine this week.

  24. ItWasTorture! says:

    “They weren’t allowed to say, “I’m mad because you trashed me in your talking head interview,” last night when we’re not supposed to be reminded about this strange timeline.”

    Eureka! Now everything makes sense to me! Thanks NMD! I know, I know… I am slow in getting it! But this time! The craziness wasn’t about the Magazines’ interviews! Got it now!

  25. Nancy says:

    Notice what Melissa is wearing at the reunion. It’s exactly the same style Teresa wore last season but she doesn’t copy Teresa does she? Please!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I noticed. If someone copies you once or twice, it’s flattering.

      If someone does it ALL the time, they are SWF-ing you. And it’s creepy. JMHO.

  26. Nancy says:

    Lot’s of luck with your book Caroline.

  27. VV says:

    Good answer Tre.

    • Zoey says:

      It’s obvious to me that T lied right off the bat. When you say I don’t miss someone in that way, you usually do.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I love you, Zoey, but I totally disagree. *Ducks* Don’t hit me too hard, Girl! We’re both from Louisiana! *Ducks*

        I think Teresa honestly does NOT miss a single one of them anymore. *Ducks* Go Saints!

        The only one I think she misses is her brother, Joey. *Ducks*. Laissez le bon temps rouler. *Ducks*.

        I think JAC is the one that misses Teresa, and that’s why she cannot keep Teresa’s name out of her mouth (or off her Twitter). *Ducks* “You Are My Sunshine, My Only Sunshine!” (Remember LA’s singing Governor?).

        Teresa said the perfect thing when she told Jac that she needed to focus on her son and his autism instead of being focused on her. *Ducks* (Remember our great Governor Edwin Edwards a.k.a., “Fast Eddie,” “The only way I’d ever lose an election in LA is if I were caught in bed with a dead GIRL or a live BOY!!”) *Ducks*

        LOL. XOXO. (*Waving*). 😀

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      LOVED!!!

  28. lillybee says:

    Loved Caro’s stink face when Andy was talking to Kathy about the plastic surgery.

  29. Powell says:

    Caro is scowling.

  30. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Eww @ Kathy with the plastic surgery.

  31. WindyCityWondering says:

    I’m hearing scary music……….buckle up ma friends, here we go!

  32. VV says:

    Why is Caroline answering for Jac?

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      VV, You’re asking that question like this is some NEW thing that Caroline does when it comes to Jac? LOL

  33. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    STFU Caroline and let Jac dig her own hole

  34. amalfi says:

    it is the chucky and drunkie show… nice way to start it off…

    what a bitch

  35. Cusi77 says:

    Jacqueline needs Caroline to communicate for her! Haa!

  36. Powell says:

    My remote is screaming “Ouch. Leave me alone”! I’m watching 666 Park also. I’ve been watching multi shows all night.

  37. Zoey says:

    Ugh, I’m trying to watch this, but Teresa is a big old ball of green jealousy and lies!

  38. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    HAHAHAHA PROVE IT BITCH

  39. amalfi says:

    jacqueline is a bloated drunk. wow… messed up

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      She looks REALLY bad!! She no longer has a waste. It’s like she’s a bloated, boxy mess with a pack of weenies stuck in her neck. Her lips also look weird.

      Her looks have definitely changed for the WORSE.

  40. Nancy says:

    Ok I already need a Xanax. lol

  41. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Jac has a set of balls this year…last year not so much

  42. VV says:

    Jac stirs the pot big time.

  43. degroohj says:

    Jax is insane…

  44. amalfi says:

    i have never felt about anyone in my real life the way i feel about that woman jacqueline and her shit eating grin.

    listen you loser, focus on your autistic kid whose life you would swear on to make a point. what a total drama queen. get a life. and some rehab.

  45. Powell says:

    The ladies are nuts!

  46. VV says:

    Andy just might as well be invisible. People are talking at the same time, people are interrupting, people are answering for others. Andy Cohen is a total moron!

  47. WindyCityWondering says:

    Hope Chuckie can muzzle that whiny bitch – I’m inclined to think it would have been more interesting if she played hooky this year as well.

  48. amalfi says:

    teresa cannot communicate in real life situations. granted, i would have a tough time in a situation that was 4 ogres vs me, but teresa is just not capable of being verbally coherent. it is painful to watch.

  49. VV says:

    I’ll be honest I don’t think a can watch three parts of this crap. It’s all gonna be the same.

  50. VV says:

    Zzzzzzzzz who cares about Ashley Zzzzzz

  51. boston02127 says:

    I already want to smack Jacqueline’s face with a boat paddle, I mean a newspaper.

  52. amalfi says:

    sorry… i am so out. i cannot watch these trash bags anymore. well, that frees up the next few sundays for me. adios bravo.

  53. nohausfrau says:

    Donning my flameproof armor… I think Tre is lying. She does that rapid eye blinking thing when she lies.

  54. Zoey says:

    Go Jac!!! Tell the truth!

  55. Nancy says:

    Poor Teresa.

  56. VV says:

    Jac before she messed up her face was kinda pretty.

  57. Nancy says:

    This is sad.

  58. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    SO not necessary….at all

  59. VV says:

    OLD HAG! STFU!!

  60. VV says:

    Even when Caroline smiles. She’s ugly 👿

  61. Zoey says:

    Teresa is not only mean, but very greasy looking tonight!

  62. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Caroline totally made this about Teresa…on purpose!!!

  63. contessa says:

    Jaq is the most disgusting person…she is sick and I believe a serious alcoholic. She needs to get her act together for her child who needs her. She looks awful, I cannot believe the physical change in her. The bloat is probably from booze, and her face – she needs to lay off the injectibles. Yuck. I cannot even go there with chuckie – she is simply scary and horrid!

  64. Powell says:

    Why cant Jac just focus on Nicholas.?.

    • Nancy says:

      Because when one drinks they become stuck in life.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Really. She is just too full of hate.

    • contessa says:

      Did she ever focus on Ashlee? Why would this be different….it’s always about poor Jaq, no the child who needs her. I always believed that the Manzo’s did not make Jaq welcom and also made Ashley feel like an outsider. Does everyone remember Caroline judging Ashley, but than she goes out and buys her daughter a business and a lap band, after she worked one entire day before walking off her little cosmetic concession. Give me a break here.

  65. nohausfrau says:

    This whole fiasco is just sad.

  66. degroohj says:

    Jacqueline cannot be on this show next season. Her Psyche cannot handle it. Her family needs her and this show will prevent that from happening. I’m almost disgusted they are displaying this…

    And Teresa doesn’t stand a chance tonight which sucks…

  67. boston02127 says:

    If Caroline wears her rolls proudly, why didn’t she let Lauren wear hers proudly and without insulting her on TV?

  68. Zoey says:

    I can’t watch this. I’ll catch it on the reruns. Jac is sad, I feel for her. I think she’s a good person. Teresa is a lying piece of trouble making crap, and Caroline is a bully. A supportive bully to Jac tonight, so that’s good.

    • karrylyn says:

      The RHNJ are all nasty but why are the REAL WOMEN on this site, being so mean about Kathys looks, Jax’s bloat, etc etc? I dont remember this, at least it had a sense of humor or decorum when calling someones sugery….not successful……I’m not saying the RHNJ are acting right…but where is the humor, the love? Just wondering….or maybe its me?
      I love you all…..but WOW…

  69. boston02127 says:

    Jac heard T talking behind her back saying “I can’t even look at her face”. Well Jac, it’s not an easy mission.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      So what if Teresa talked/vented about Jac to mutual friends. That’s better than dogging her out constantly on Twitter in front of the entire NATION!

  70. Powell says:

    Since the cookbook whatever T says Caro is going to think she means something else.

  71. Nancy says:

    Andy is loving this. Jerk!

  72. I swear on my child who’s autistic. There it is.

  73. VV says:

    Jac is a lier. She lied on her talking head about being hurt for not being invited to the Fabellini party. LIE LIE LIE.

  74. WindyCityWondering says:

    OMG – my husband just said that Caroline got really fat!

  75. Powell says:

    You see what Chris said. “Our family is going thru a lot”. Well get your wife focused on Nicholas and off of T.

  76. nohausfrau says:

    Tre is her own worst enemy. If she would just sit back and and quit trying to make this the Tre show she would get my sympathy because I don’t like ganging up.

  77. Nancy says:

    I think she looks like a hooker.

  78. Cusi77 says:

    After 28 minutes of Reunion they have already covered practically everything! What else can they talk about for three parts Reunions?

  79. VV says:

    This is boring. Who cares about Lauren.

  80. LaineyLainey says:

    I turned it off. I just can’t do it. My daughter was here and said, “you look so stressed out, mom., let’s turn it off.” So I turned it off and I feel better.

    • cocfarm says:

      Come watch homeland!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Oh honey, I would if i could!!!!!!! I don’t have showtime or hbo or starz or nuthin’ – – – well i do have bravo. hahahahahaha!!!

        • cocfarm says:

          We got showtme for free when we quit our carrier for Internet connection (they gave it to us to keep us for cable clients). I would not pay for it but am secretly glad I have it when dexter and homeland seasons begin.

  81. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    HAHAHAHAHA they didnt have jobs….its true!!!!!

  82. Cusi77 says:

    And it shows , Caroline!

  83. Nancy says:

    Charming Lauren.

  84. VV says:

    Why is Lauren still there sitting on the couch?

  85. WindyCityWondering says:

    Chuckie really raised a nice daughter. She is nasty.

  86. Good for Melissa and Lauren. Teresa was WAY out of line.

    • VV says:

      Something tickled her. Not sure exactly what it was or if Bravo cleverly edited it out. I think Bitter Clown finger pointing was a trigger for Tre – if we are to believe the events the way we just saw them.

      • I want to like her – but she clearly lied about the ghost writer – and she’s just mean. I think she just has really good assistants who do her social media for her. That’s why she comes across less awful than the rest of them.

        • VV says:

          If she lied about the ghost writer, she’s only hurting herself ( personally, I don’t think that’s a big deal ) when the rest of them is with the specific intention of hurting Teresa. There is a difference.

          • Tracyshea says:

            It makes you wonder what else she is lying about. I don’t think Tre knows the truth. Lying is like breathing for her.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I don’t think it’s a big deal either.

            Speaking of lying, EVERY single one of those women sitting on those couches lies all the g*ddamn time — not JUST Teresa!

            Jac is going to lie next week (or the next) and say she was never a stripper and and escort. She just used to model lingerie for men before they would buy it for their girlfriends or wives.

            Ummm….o.k., Jac. That sounds plausible….

            …..to the g*ddamned Easter Bunny!!

            She’s also NEVER going to admit that she was the secret source who gave several ugly and damaging stories about her own sister-in-law, Dina, and her former friend, Teresa. LIES of omission.

            Jac needs to stop calling Teresa a liar; get off the booze; get some mental health treatment; get off Twitter; get off the internet; get OUT OF Teresa’s family and general business; STFU; have several seats; and focus on at last ONE of her children for once in her pathetic life (because Nicholas needs her)!!

  87. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    OMG….over the limit!!!!!!

  88. Powell says:

    Ok!!!! That was pleasant. 😦

  89. BB says:

    I’m not watching the reunion and by the comments, I’m glad I decided not to. Lol.

  90. WindyCityWondering says:

    Andy and Teresa are playing these fools!

  91. I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    Lauren still looks fat to me (Sorry), and I can’t believe that, even with a lapband, after all of this time, she has only lost 35 pounds (*Shrug*). And I see the weight coming back. Maybe I’m wrong, but that’s what I see.

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Detox. How are you doing?

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Hi, Nancy,

        Mentally, these bitches are all making me crazy.

        Physically, I’m feeling much better (Knock wood!). Thank you for asking.

        • Nancy says:

          I was getting worried as you were MIA today. Glad to know you are doing ok. 🙂

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I was on the blog today. I got on kinda late, though.

            I was too busy dealing with Mama Detox (who decided to stand and cook 75 gallons of gumbo when she NEEDS to NOT be standing on her feet that damned long because of her recent back surgery); dealing with Papa Detox who was watching Westerns, constantly screaming at me to bring him some Crystal Light mixed with Diet Coke (GROSS); to find out what’s wrong with his remote; to call DirecTV to see if he can get some free channels for being such a good, longstanding customer; doing absolutely NOTHING to prepare for getting up at 6:30 tomorrow morning for his cataract surgery; AND constantly asking me to get up and get this and then that and then this and then that (Why can’t he just make one long list and then give it to me? JEEZ!!! Spoiled Rotten!!).

            And washing dishes; doing laundry; and….

            Just trying to maintain my sanity (*Shrug*).

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      My son has lost 70 pounds since February – diet and exercise does work. Lauren is lazy and looks lumpy.

      • contessa says:

        Congrats to your son – that is a HUGE ACCOMPLISHMENT. The sad thing is Lauren has access to health clubs, proper food, and a nutritionist. She is simply lazy and on top of that very nasty and she looks dirty. Her makeup looked awful and her hair looked stringy and greasy.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Congrats to your son, Windy!!! diet and exercise, huh? No magic cure, no shortcuts for him! He must have worked very hard. Hubby and I just went for a walk – – – it’s been a long time since I walked a mile. But I did it! Gonna try to start a new habit.

    • Sam says:

      My hairdresser got a lapband two years ago, and after losing everything she wanted to lose, she gained it all back plus at least 20 more pounds.

    • kendo says:

      There’s no way in hell she’s working out 3 hours a day.
      She looks fat, maybe all of her anger is wrecking havoc on her body.
      If she was working out that much, she wouldn’t need the lapband.

    • contessa says:

      I knew someone who had lap band and they lost a ton of weight, 35 pounds is nothing with that surgery. I’ve seen photos of her recently and it appears it is coming back. Karma is a bitch isn’t it. Detox so good to see you. We all missed you and the comments, truly hope you are on the mend XXOO

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Thanks, Contessa. I am (Knock wood). I agree with you. I saw a recent pic of Lauren, and her face looks like it’s gotten fatter. A lapband will not help a person who does not address what is causing him/her to be an emotional eater in the FIRST place. I know some of Lauren’s weight problem may be due to genetics. I totally get that.

        However, I think a LARGE part of it has to do with low self-esteem and scars from years of verbal and emotional abuse about her weight, her intelligence level and about how she simply is not worth as much as her brothers.

        She does not need a lapband. She needs therapy.

        She also needs to get out of her Mama’s house and out of “grown folks'” business and focus on building a life of her own and on hanging out with people her OWN age to whom she is NOT related.

        Get out and see the World, Lauren!! It might do you some good!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          That nasty little girl could grow to become a worldly competent confident woman if she escaped the dysfunction that is her fambly. But will her jailer let her go?

  92. boston02127 says:

    What’s the diffrence between Teresa insulting Caroline and Caroline insulting Lauren?

  93. Nancy says:

    That was a strange exchange.

  94. degroohj says:

    Jax even lokoks unstable during the commercial short…

  95. VV says:

    Wasn’t the question for Teresa? Why is everybody interrupting her.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Anytime she tries to speak, one or more of them CONSTANTLY interrupt her. It’s like a bunch of cats with their claws out surrounding her and hissing at her if she tries to make even one move.

  96. WindyCityWondering says:

    Missy is wearing the same style dress as Teresa did in her talking heads – different color and no feathers but same style – did she get it from the nice posh.

  97. VV says:

    Xanax for Jac please.

  98. VV says:

    Whore out Gia? WTF YOU F*CKING BITTER CLOWN!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      She actually said that??????

      • VV says:

        She did say Teresa is whoring Gia. How disgusting is that.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          How can anyone think that is ok???

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Very. She loves to talk about Teresa’s poor parenting.

          Meanwhile, HER kids are basically useless.

          And her sister-in-law sitting next to her not only WAS a FOR REAL W-H-O-R-E that her brother married when she got knocked up (and finally got off the damned pole and finally gave up her Client List)…..

          She is too damned busy being on Twitter to focus on her children, especially one with special needs.

          Caroline needs to STFU about other people’s parenting.

  99. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ohhhhhhhh who cares…..it was boring the first time now its just TORTURE!!!!!!!!!

  102. nohausfrau says:

    Jac needs to get off this show. I think she’s telling her truth but she’s become obsessed with taking down Tre. It makes her look crazy.

  103. VV says:

    Yes, that’s true. Kathy is Caroline’s puppet.

  104. degroohj says:

    This reunion is the definition of relational aggression…

  105. WindyCityWondering says:

    Kathy is really a jealous little asshat.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Did I hear correctly? did Andy say she (Kuzzin Kathy) looked like Michael Jackson with her newly pinched nose??? Or was I just thinking that so hard that I only think I heard it.

  106. Nancy says:

    WOW!!!!

  107. VV says:

    Apparently Teresa’s mom is in the audience.

  108. nohausfrau says:

    Caro is right. This is insane!!! It’s like a bunch of snotty 13 year olds in the bodies of middle aged women.

  109. djprincessc says:

    Its barely going to be 8pm here so I still got 2 hours till the reunion. But I just wanted to say this:

    1.- I’ve never liked Jaq since the first time I heard her speak, and mainly bc of she’s very immature and antagonistic with her daughter (I would cry if my mom taunted me the way she did with Ashlee)

    AND…

    2-. I HATE LAUREN MANZO SO MUCH, and the fact that, that fat, ugly, sweaty bitch is even allowed to sit on the couch makes me livid. She’s not a housewife, nobody cares about her lazy ass getting lap band, Teresa is right why didn’t she work hard and loose weight??

    IDK how I’m gonna get though the reunion tonite, but there’s NO way I can’t NOT watch.

  110. Powell says:

    W T F???????

  111. Cusi77 says:

    Who was shouting back there? JoeGo?

    • VV says:

      Rosie (Kathy’s sister)

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I like Rosie, and I am NOT trying to be mean at all. This is a SERIOUS question: Is she slow? I have wondered about that, honestly.

        • Called A Princess says:

          Detox, I have always wondered the same thing. I wonder if being gay somehow held her back. Also I think she drank away the pain of not fitting in for her young adulthood. She plays the class clown because she does not want people to see her hurting. I think she is really very angry. JMHO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            VERY. And I don’t buy Kathy and Rich’s, “Oh, we’ve always been so open and totally gay-friendly and NEVER had ANY problem with Rosie being gay AT ALL!! We’ve ALWAYS hung a RAINBOW flag right next to our American and Italian flags!!”

            I think that’s a bunch of B.S.

            Why are Kathy and Rosie’s brothers not on the show or ever mentioned? I’ve read several comments on Jersey-based and other blogs that their brothers are or once were involved in illegal activity (or activities….like of the drug-type variety, as in possibly selling. Do NOT quote me, but I’m pretty sure I’ve seen that more than once. ALL of these people are just so wholesome and LOVELY, aren’t they? It’s ONLY Joe and Teresa that are the “bad,” “evil” and “criminal” and “lying” people. GMAFB!!).

    • Powell says:

      I couldn’t tell but I would think it was him.

  112. Wow. I never thought I’d like Caroline again – but she won me over when she tried to moderate that. Holy Gorga switch. Kathy and Rosie have it too.

  113. nohausfrau says:

    Thank goodness that’s over.

  114. lillybee says:

    Kathy also called Tre’s father a coward for leaving. I wonder how JoeGo feels about his cousin insulting his parents.

  115. kendo says:

    That was bad! Rosie is insane too! Damn, I can’t believe I’m watching this shit!

  116. Nancy says:

    How long do you think it will take for Jacq’s twitter to blow up?

  117. ATLnNYC09 says:

    If Kathy called my mom a f-ing liar, we would be going to blows.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      True – it would be going down here as well. Kathy is the cousin no one likes and it showed tonight why.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Same here. Kathy drew first blood in talking about the parents. It’s o.k. when Kathy calls Teresa’s mother a “fucking liar,” but when Teresa says, “My father did more for your family than your own father did,” all of a sudden it’s so unforgivable that Rosie talks about cutting her tongue out.

      By the way, SATIN is NOT Kathy’s friend. I could see all of her rolls.

  118. Nancy says:

    Andy thinks this is all a joke. It makes me sick.

  119. boston02127 says:

    Well, I’m blocked by yet another. Kathy blocked me tonight for this tweet:
    @KathyWakile big (HUGH) mistake doing that to your face.

    Damn, just when I wanted that cannoli recipe of hers!

    • Nancy says:

      I’ll get it for you boston. 🙂

      • boston02127 says:

        TY Nancy, I’m thinking of cannoli’s now and urging one. We have Michael’s Bakery in the North End that makes the best in the world. People line up to get in for a cannoli.

        • Rebecca says:

          Get some shells. Drain a pint of ricotta over cheesecloth and a sieve. Drop that into a food processor with 3 tablespoons of powdered sugar and 2 tablespoons of sambuco. Pulse until smooth. Hand mix in 6 oz chopped dark chocolate. Fill shells. Dust with powdered sugar.

        • I Need A Life! says:

          Best Cannoli in Chicago is the bakery at Belmont & Harlem. Can’t think of the name. I don’t care about Kathy after this. I’m on Tre’s side. You can’t touch HER dad, but she can call Tre’s dad a coward. You can cut the hate between Tre & Kathy with a knife. Damn, I like Caroline tonight. Tre went to sit next to Caroline because of all the women there, Caroline is the only person who would lend a sincere arm of comfort.

    • VV says:

      LMAO Boston!

              for the life of me….I cannot think of ONE LOUSY excuse for Richie to come up with, to excuse what he said about Kathy and the fish taste….i mean, he cannot even say he LOVES fish, its his favorite food….He would be better off saying I made a huge mistake,…I dont know why I said that….but someone had just made a tuna joke and I told myself do not go there Richie….dont say tuna and we all know that when we say DO NOT DO THIS or DO NOT SAY THIS….that is what our brain remembers!!!!
              If i was Kathy, I would have beat him…..with a dead fish and tell him you ASSHOLE….I do not smell like fish!!!!!!!!!!!!! or taste like fish!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot believe that Bravo left that in….it is not a cool thing to do….oh well….maybe she does. But still….is he so dense that he would say that on camera?????? true or not???????

              • NJBev says:

                Honestly, I think his response was edited. No man worth his due would EVER

      • nohausfrau says:

        I’m surprised things are so proTre tonight. Others must be seeing something I’m missing. I really think they are all nuts….

        • djprincessc says:

          Someone else said it on the blog before but I can’t remember who, its the hypocrisy and glancing over of the others. I’m 100% pro Teresa, I’ve always loved her but what I think is making more people have sympathy or being on her side is that she gets called out on EVERYTHING and the others NOTHING. Why is it ok for everyone to call her stupid, scum, ape, etc etc etc when the others are guilty of exactly the same? What makes her more wrong? Its ok for Caroline to call Danielle a clown but Teresa can’t say Caroline has blubber? Its ok for Caroline to call her daughter fat but Teresa can’t say why didn’t Lauren work hard to lose weight naturally? Its not ok for Teresa to be on a magazine but Melissa was on the cover last week and sold her story. Its ok if Jaq is in a lawsuit with her husband for 11 million, but Teresa can’t file for bankruptcy?? So what if Teresa lies! They all lie! If she doesn’t want to say how much she makes or wether she gets paid for the stories or not thats her business! At what point is Teresa allowed to break? Would anyone be able to sit there quietly and NOT defend themselves? I don’t think so. If I were Teresa I would be saying A LOT worse and horrible things to all of them. You see what I mean? Like I said I love Tre but I know she’s not an angel, none of them are. If they were all asked the same type of questions I don’t think you would see soooo many more pro Teresa posters. Hell, last season people hated her because of the bankruptcy issues. lol.

          • I think they all suck. She’s no better or worse than the rest of them.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            AMEN!!!

            This is what I have been screaming ALL season long! If I were Teresa, I’d be a really MEAN BITCH at the Reunion too.

            And, I’m sorry, but after everything all of those women said about me and did to me for the past 2 seasons, I would be THANKING GOD every day that I now had those people out of my life.

            And, I’m a very compassionate and sensitive person….but after ALL of that, I simply could not find it in within myself to shed one single tear for any of them and any of their hardships.

            Because they sure as hell did not give a damn about any of mine. In fact, they ALL ganged up and tried their hardest to break me and kick me when I was down and going through one of the WORST times in my life.

            That is when family is supposed to come together.

            NOT make it their MISSION to totally break me down.

            If I were Teresa, I would be like, “PHUCK Kathy; PHUCK Melissa; PHUCK Caroline; PHUCK Jacqueline; PHUCK Rosie; and yes, PHUCK Joey MARCO too.

            PHUCK ‘EM ALL!!

            See ya, Bitches!! Watch the back of my ass as I continue to focus on my OWN family and my OWN business and do my best to pay my debt and prosper. I probably will because I will have gotten rid of the negative and toxic people in my life whose JEALOUS/CRABS IN A BARREL asses wish me NO GOOD and want to drag me back down into the toxic barrel with ’em.

            See you all again…..Ummm….

            NEVER!!!!

            • djprincessc says:

              Totally Detox. The problem with Teresa is when she’s put on the spot she frets a lot, she’s not good with words. I have friends like that, I’ve always been sharp with my tongue and comebacks since I was a baby! I would have friends ask me, so what do I say now or how should I say this?? Its not a big deal Teresa can’t express herself the best but its frustrating! Of course those women look good against her on the couch, but have them one on one asking real questions and they’d crumble.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Same here, DJP. Being quick with a comeback, sassy and a smartass is the MAIN reason I was punished to much as a child (My parents are BOTH the SAME way, though. I mean…I was totally THEIR apple).

                I totally agree that Teresa’s just not good with the quick comebacks. I honestly think a lot of the “quick blinking” that Teresa does is seriously her brain processing things from Italian to English. I also think she may have a slight processing disability.

                I have a LONG LIST of friends whose E-mail responses and letters and whatever I type for them when they are not good with words and being verbally slayed by a foe too.

                I don’t mind. It’s just so natural and easy to me (*Shrug*).

                Lord, how I wish I could insert my brain into Teresa’s head for the Reunions!!!

                I eat bitches like Caroline, Jac, Kathy, Melissa, and Lauren FOR BREAKFAST!!

                They would either be CRYING or being held back by bodyguards because they would be trying to PHYSICALLY HARM or MURDER me while I sat back and laughed my ass off at ’em withou breaking into a single sweat.

                I promise you they’d think twice before they crossed my a*s again too!

                I love to get along with people.

                But when PUSHED….I push back REAL HARD (I usually give people TWO very nice, but firm, warnings beforehand, though. THIRD strike….and, oh, bitch….LOOK…THE…EFF…OUT. I’m COMIN’ for YA….and it’s gonna be BRUTAL!!!

                I warned you TWICE beforehand, though (*Shrug*).

                • djprincessc says:

                  Lol. I take more after my grandma, my mom isn’t sarcastic or quick with the comebacks…shes nice. lol. And my dad is quick with comebacks and normal sarcasm wise I guess. I got it all really bad. I treat people the way they treat me PERIOD. I don’t care who you are or what you do. My thing is I don’t have anything to explain to anyone, I do what I want, when I want. I always tell the truth though even when I look bad and slay anyone who hurts anyone I love. The best way to describe me is “When I like you I love you, and when I don’t I hate you, theres no in-between with me.” Those women are lucky Teresa is the way she is. I don’t think she has anything wrong, she’s just processing what everyone is throwing at her. I bet she thinks of what to say AFTER and goes man I should’ve said that.

                    Thanks, NJ Bev. Yes, I am an attorney (unfortunately).

                    It is a VERY stressful profession. There are a lot of good, honest, hardworking, ethical attorneys out there.

                    There are also a whole LOT of unethical, sociopathic, BAD ones out there too — unfortunately.

                    It’s disheartening when you sometimes want to take a shower after having to work with certain colleagues. There’s a reason lawyer jokes were invented (*Shrug*).

      Chrissy Tiegen is a former commenter’s cousin, This Is An Emergency People. She’s John Legend’s fiance and was featured on Chris March’s Bravo Show. Chris designed a dress for her.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        She’s also a huge Manzo lover because Caroline and some of the other Manzo’s met her somewhere and SUCKED up to her so much (the way they do to several celebrities) that she’s totally biased and in favor of the Manzo’s.

        I LOVE John Legend’s music.

        I think Chrissy Tiegen is gorgeous (even though she is biased).

        And I think John Legend is TOTALLY gay and Chrissy knows it (and is TOTALLY his beard). JMHO.

        • BB says:

          This is the impression I got of them from blogging Chris March’s show. Chrissy was kind of flighty and immature and John was kind of controlling over her. I don’t know how much older he is than her, but it didn’t seem like an equal kind of relationship. JMHO. Sorry if TIAEP see this. Just an observation from the show.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            That man could sing the phone book to me, and I would love it.

            He probably seems a bit controlling over her because she is always sticking her foot in her mouth and saying things in interviews and on Twitter to offend people — usually his fellow celebrities (with whom he is presently working or with whom he may like to work in the future). She has done it more than once, and he has had to “clean up” and apologize for her.

            If she does not stop, he is probably not going to renew her “beard contract.” He’ll probably find a model/companion that keeps quiet like all good beards should (e.g., like Dr. Dre’s wife, for instance. You never hear her say anything — which is why they have been together about 14 years now, despite the fact that he is allegedly gay).

            She and Giselle both need to just LOOK BEAUTIFUL and STFU. Nobody cares about their opinions and judgments. They are there to be beautiful clothes hangers and that’s all (particularly when they are judgmental but not really all that bright; however, they are under the mistaken delusion that they are geniuses). JMHO. No offense to anyone.

    • NJBev says:

      one is married to Joe Swisher of the NY Yankees
      and the the other (to our right) is married to singer

      I’ve seen it.

    • NJBev says:

      I’ll have to agree with you, NMD, about Kathy. I think the minute she
      heard Tre say her Mom said she and Rich were almost getting
      divorced, she blew a fuse. It was great to see her grow some effin chops.

          and maybe her Aunt (who is not a “true” Gorga, but just by marriage,
          as is Melissa), hasn’t shown any respect to her family either, (rmbr
          Posche show at brownstone last year, when Kathy said to Tre about
          Audriana being left at Christening and Tre ran to her Mom saying “Ma-
          Ma, Kath is saying… and Tre’s Ma starting YELLING at Kathy!!
          I think the problem may lie with Tre’s Mom more so than the Gorga’s~~~
          she may not want Tre to have relationship w/ Kathy b/c Kathy’s Mom
          and the rest of the Gorga’s had all those crazy issues??
          Just throwin that out there—-

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          exactly – no respect and name calling!

      • BB says:

        All she had to say was that it wasn’t true and she doesn’t know where Tre’s mom got that idea. They are all trash as far as I’m concerned. BTW, I didn’t watch it, just going by what has been said here. Why people make excuses for everyone except Teresa I don’t understand. Not excusing Teresa either. They are all trash.

          I would divorce him! Not a bad thing in my book. JMHO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I agree.

            Look, if I was told, “You MUST have sex with one of the husbands or significant others of one of the housewives!!!,” I would gladly screw the BRAINS out of the following: Apollo (Atlanta), Romain Zago(Miami) and Mario (New York). They wouldn’t even have to pay me. And I’d do it with Apollo and Romain SEVERAL times. I’d only do it with Mario once or twice because I’d probably KILL him. I mean, he is a little older than the other two.

            Also, I go through LONG periods of celibacy because I am choosy and don’t like sleeping around. But I am much like a camel when it comes to sex. A camel eats like CRAZY and STORES all of the food in his hump because he knows he’s got to cross the desert where there will be no food for months and months. He will be o.k., though, because he’s got the “reserves” in his hump.

            In between my periods of celibacy, I usually wear my boyfriends OUT (*Shrug* More than one 6′ – 6’3, 200-240 pound man has asked me how a 5 foot tall woman like myself can just wear them out the way I do. I tell ’em to SHUT THE EFF UP and get some REST for the next round and to ALWAYS remember to eat their Wheaties and pack a lunch when they cross through my bedroom door. I don’t have time for their whining or their excuses).

            I like Ramona. So, I would NOT want to make her a widow.

            On the other hand, if I were FORCED at GUNPOINT to either have sex with Joe Giudice or Richie Wakile, I would pick Joe Giudice.

            And I HATE to ADMIT this, but I have a feeling that, despite my disgust, I’d probably have sex with Joe Giudice more than once (because he would probably make me LAUGH. That’s my one weakness).

            If I were told that my only choice was to sleep with Richie Wakile or be SHOT,

            I’d take the gun out of my tormentors hand and shoot MYSELF because that is just how UTTERLY and TOTALLY G-R-O-S-S I find Richie Wakile!!

            I honestly think even Kathie — despite her EXTREME BORING-NESS — can do a lot better than Liver Lips, Butter-Colored, Buck-Toothed Rich!

    Anyone get the feeling that Teresa knows something about Kathy’s father that Kathy and Rosie do not want us to know? Not being disrespectful -just a feeling I got. Never seen Kathy so passionate-should have shown that side to her during filming….

        • NJBev says:

          It’s sick, Jill!!!
          All of them are guilty, every single one of them.

          BUT>> it’s so fascinating as they all drop secret
          “bombs” on each other
          things you know were discussed in total confidence
          (you CAN tell they were at one
          time very good friends, b/c only good friends divulge
          these secrets to each other in total moments of trust)
          ie; Caroline had a tummy tuck!
          Teresa tells Jax she walked in on Juicy with a broad
          on his desk. How many bombshells will land in our laps
          over the next few episodes???

          IMO. things told in confidence like that, should stay in
          confidence. NOt used as a total low-ball shot on a TV
          show. Jax and Tre are the worst at this, imo. As you
          say, usung the skeleton’s. that are no longer skeleton’s.
          low blows.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              for that matter, that my friends will never be on
              national TV!!
              I got a b-day card from a 20 yr + friend this year,
              that said, I can’t afford to Piss You Off—- You know too
              much!!! And, man oh man, she is not kidding.

              But even in a show like this, I couldn’t imagine the
              “low blows” coming out, from my friends. We were
              reared better.

    • Rebecca says:

      Don’t you remember the last reunion when Teresa said her husband told the other husbands how to flip houses. Kathy then got pissed off and said “you don’t wanna go there.” Cut to this season, Juicy says the same thing to the men and they DON’T deny it.

      Kathy is such a fame whore she will say anything to cause a casino.

  132. WindyCityWondering says:

    Something I know – when your “family” is attacking you and your former friends are helping them then they are the ones who are breaking up the family. At the end of the day, Teresa will be there to pick up the pieces of her brother’s life. You don’t have to love her or hate her to know that.

  133. boston02127 says:

    The most shocking part of the reunion for me was when Jacqueline got so angry and yelled “I swear on my son, my autistic son”.

    What is that about? Is her other son better? Why not say “kids” in general? Swear on Ashley. Why say that?

  134. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Let me just say that if my BFF ever went to my SIL’s and told them everything I ever said about them-the fight we would get into would put these Jersey girls to shame. Everyone vents to their friend about their family-no one expects them to blabber mouth it at a reunion. Jac is no friend-at all.

    • djprincessc says:

      I second that Jill.

    • I agree. Jaq caused a boatload of trouble for that family and she is no friend to any of them.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think what Teresa said to Jac and Caroline when they were all friends should be kept out of this. It isnt right to bring up private convo’s that took place when they were friends-its low and mean. It also help NO ONE and causes nothing but pain…which is exactly what Jac and Caroline wanted-IMHO

        • lori says:

          And then they get mad when she does the same thing to them. It’s all such a pathetic joke. I’m not even a Teresa fan. I just cannot stand how these “women” (using the term loosely) behave. For Caroline to be offended by the three rolls comment is a joke when she’s said far worse about her own daughter. That being sad I wish Teresa would have taken the high road at the reunion..or at least higher road.

  135. VV says:

    Finally!!! We know why Jac tweets a lot. She tweeted the following tonight:

    “I tweet a lot because I do a lot of research on the computer all day on Beauty and Autism, so it’s convenient for me. So what.:0) I enjoy it
    Sent Sep 30, 08:55 PM
    From Mobile Web”

    (Notice this tweet was sent from her phone not her computer)

  136. boston02127 says:

    Another odd thing. Melissa’s reaction when Teresa called out Caroline’s rolls. When Kathy called Teresa’s mom an f’n liar, Melissa just sat there.

    K, I can’t talk about them anymore tonight. Good night everyone, it was fun chatting with everyone tonight.

  137. VV says:

    Teresa is freaking pathological! She is a compulsive liar! Even when caught, she just plows ahead! Best moment, by far, was Lauren nailing that lying bit*h to the wall about lying about writing her own blog! It was glorious! Also love T claiming Mel copied her eyeshadow and Mel pointing out she wore it last year, ‘you wackadoo’. T really is an narcissist of the highest order. Everyone copies her, everyone wants to be her. She’s insane. Oh, man, I’ve got to get a screen cap of T’s pathetic face as dead silence fell when Lauren was waiting for an answer to napalm.

    • NJBev says:

Calling out kathy on her nose job…..really? I think everyone got called out on something….but not funny stuff….Oh well….when the reunion ladies are mean to one another, we get that….its expected. but…..I think we are better than they are.
    maybe I’m just being hormonal…..????
    Cuz I love this site, but I dont like it when women say hurtful things about another one….and they cant choose to change it. If Kathy sees this, she knows people think she made a mistake and what is she supposed to do, ask for her old nose back?
    Jax a drunk? really? tell her to mind her kid at home and get off the show? really? well, where is all the judgement coming from?
    really….Ladies…..I know the Laughter and Love has gone….but always in our memory….

        • Zoey says:

          Haha, I still got what you meant NJBev. And I sort of agree with you and Karrylyn. I feel there’s a bit of a slant in one direction. Lynn usually came in and put a lid on some things and now it’s running free, if I may speak openly. I wish more who I know read the blog would join in and maybe it would be more balanced again. Just my lil ole opinion. I do love it here and love the people here, but it just seems somewhat more hostile.

    • contessa says:

      I don’t get what you are saying…yes we all get on here and let it rip. NJ is a travesty of human behavior and reality TV. I don’t see the difference from last year to this year, with the exception of missing Lynn. I think the people who write the blogs are extraordinary for keeping her memory alive and continuing the blogs. We all rant on here and we ranted on Lynn’s site as well, the love and support to one another has not lessened whatsoever. However the shows have just gotten nastier and we here react to the darkness. Yes we are better than they are, we are real, they are in a reality program and are going for the jugular for ratings. I agree it isn’t nice to make fun of one’s appearance, but they are all doing it to each other on screen and sometimes we can cross the line as well (I have on the blog when I am feeling really emotional about something that hit a chord). I wouldn’t worry too much about the love and joy being gone, as I still feel it here and see it when someone has a problem or a worry.

    • The Tin Man says:

      All that hate coming from the Tree lovers is just too ironic and zaps the fun right out of this place. Oh well, it is what it is.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      I agree wholeheartedly … But I think the difference is when Lynn (still miss you lots) started this blog, we ALL pretty much had a common dislike of Jill Z. However I do remember some mean judgemental remarks directed at KKB and Bethany. Maybe it seemed lighter and funnier because the majority of us were on the same page about Jill Z. What I see here with Teresa, I don’t get it and I likely never will, to me her behavior on and off camera is 10 times worse than Jill Z ever was..and I also think she brings out the worse in all the other cast members. She is difficult to watch and listen to. Most people here think she is being ganged up on and bullied, I think she is getting the exact reaction to her actions that she wants to deflect her real life problems. I feel extreme pity for her and I’ve said this many times … She is a ticking time bomb. IMHO

    • RealhouseWifeva says:

      I’m sorry but there was lots of insults about looks when Lynn was alive (RIP) as well. Kelly got hit a lot. As did tre for looking like an ‘ape’. Countless others did as well. It hasn’t changed… I can go back and find examples for you. NJ in general got uglier and darker (not looks, just behavior) so response to them seems to get uglier and darker. Wish they would replace the entire cast at this point 😦 I’m not even watching anymore

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Karrylin-you want to know what happened…NJ happened. Read the blog when other shows are on and tell me how you feel. NJ has always brought out the uglies in ALL of us. I have seen Lynn get pretty heated when discussing NJ -she had her favorites and she had her not-so-favorites,its just what NJ does-an ugly show that makes people act ugly. We all have different opinions on this one franchise and we all want to voice that opinion-and we certainly have that right. Sometimes our snark gets out of hand but no anymore than NJ own snark.
      This blog is now what it always was-a place to come together and smack talk about a TV show-a place to come and chat with our “friends” and give and get advise, encouragement, hope, prayers and just shoot the breeze-NJ cant take that away from us. 2 more weeks and it will be over-

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Dear Karrylyn: Good morning to you!! I still experience love and laughter here. Just weighing in on the love and laughter thing. Do you post everyday or is this just a “hit and run”? Either way, you are certainly entitled to your opinion about the show. But your blanket statement about the whole board? That rubs me in an unpleasant way. Either way, I am sorry you find this board to be so mean now. I lurked for a long time before I started commenting and I don’t remember this board being filled with loving comments for the housewives. What would that be like, I wonder?

      Let’s see: Instead of: Kathy’s plastic surgery looks bad.
      how about this? Kathy’s plastic surgery is certainly interesting. One might wish to avoid going to her plastic surgeon due to the interesting outcome.

      Instead of: Jacqueline drinks too much. how about: Jacqueline certainly enjoys the occasional cocktail, doesn’t she?

      Instead of: Did you hear Rosie screaming like a viking in heat backstage?
      How about: That Rosie, her voice certainly does travel!

      Karrylyn, I’m just joshing with you! Hope you take this in the spirit it is intended,…to make you giggle!!!

    I think that that what is going on between Kathy and Tre is really about what has happened between the elder Gorga siblings i.e. Tre’s father and Kathy’s mother.

    • NJBev says:

      I think there’s truth in your statement, lillybee…..

      • I Need A Life! says:

        You’re probably right, lillybee. I also wonder if Tre’s parents openly disapproved of Rosie?

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I also wonder if ROSIE’S parents openly disapproved of ROSIE.

          • NJBev says:

            I think we saw an episode this year
            that showed Rosie’s Mom being very
            accepting of Rosie and a Girlfriend.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              NOW.

              But I’m sure it was a process, NJBev. Rosie’s parents were immigrants that hailed from a CATHOLIC country.

              I doubt very seriously that they just said, “Oh, so you’re a lesbian, Rosie! That’s GREAT!!! Let’s have a party.”

              I’m pretty sure Rosie, even if nothing was ever SAID, was possibly made to feel like she had to sublimate or DENY that aspect of her being (i.e., her sexuality) for a very LONG time.

              When one of my first cousins came out to his parents, my uncle brought a priest to their home more than once to “counsel” him. His younger sister (who is about 6 years younger than me), who is his ONLY sibling and absolutely ADORES him and who has always been super-progressive actually SERIOUSLY told me, after her brother had just come out, “I don’t really think he’s GAY. I think he’s just had bad luck with some girls and his relationships. So, he’s convinced himself he is gay because of low self-esteem.”

              I could not believe it. She was NEVER homophobic, but when it came to her OWN brother, it took a while for her to get over her shock and to just digest it (even though, instinctively, I think they knew he was gay from the time he was about 3 years old. ALL of the cousins in his age group, including myself, did — even before we knew what “gay” even WAS).

              When she said that, I had to take her by the shoulders, look her straight in her eyes, and say, “Detox’ Cousin, your brother is GAY and always HAS been. This has absolutely nothing to do with having low self-esteem or having had bad relationships with a female or two. In fact, if you will recall, he actually had a few GOOD relationships with women. He is naturally attracted to MEN, though. It was the way he was BORN. It is not the result of something ‘bad’ happening to him and ‘turning’ him that way. It simply just IS. You have to do your best to accept and come to terms with it. You don’t have to UNDERSTAND it, but if you want to keep your brother in your life, you need to ACCEPT it.”

              NOW, he and his boyfriend often visit my aunt and uncle and stay over for holidays, and his sister often visits them and takes trips with them.

              That did not just INSTANTLY happen overnight, though, NJ Bev. And my aunt and uncle were not fresh off the boat, and it’s not like they were these super-religious Catholics either.

              JMHO.

              • NJBev says:

                ITA.
                NOBODY was openly excepting of being
                Gay in those years. Not even the Gays
                themselves. (Thru no fault of their own)

                Detox. I dont know how old you are and I’m
                not even sure how relevant it is, but when
                Rosie was growing up, it took her time to own
                up to who she is. She didn’t chose it, and
                couldn’t understand it herself, even if
                “she knew since she was 8” what the heck
                was she to do with that knowledge?
                The Last 20 yrs have been so progressive,
                it’s hard to rmbr how hard the years before
                were.

                If it took everyone that much time to
                catch up to the realities of Biology, why
                would you judge Rosie’s Mom, more than
                another individual?

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  NJ Bev, Can you point out to me where I said I “JUDGED” Rosie’s parents?

                  Can you also point out to me where I said I “JUDGED” Rosie’s parents “MORE than another individual?”

                  Someone wondered if Teresa’s parents openly disapproved of Rosie’s sexuality.

                  I wondered if Rosie’s own parents, at one time, disapproved of Rosie’s sexuality.

                  Where does that imply some type of “judgment”? My point was that it might not have been easy for Teresa’s parents OR for Rosie’s parents to immediately and easily understand and accept Rosie’s sexuality due to being immigrants from a CATHOLIC country where, in the Catholic Church, this has not been openly accepted and has been considered a “sin.”

                  I even used an example from my own family to analyze how difficult it might have been for them.

                  Am I missing something here?

                  I think, for some reason, you want to put words into my mouth and to ascribe certain feelings and opinions I have that I do NOT.

                  Why is that? I find it very interesting.

                  It’s almost like, for some reason, you want to pick a fight with me for some reason.

                  I have always been kind and respectful to you.

                  I just so happen to have a different opinion than you when it comes to some of the NJ Housewives (or maybe a different opinion from you when it comes to ALL of the NJ Housewives. Who knows? More importantly, who CARES? Is it really all that DEEP? It certainly is not to ME).

                  • NJBev says:

                    I most certainly do not want to put words in your mouth, so don’t infer that. For
                    someone who does not find this stuff all that deep, you sure have a lot to say about
                    it. I get that, and you are entitled to it. It’s your opinion and you are allowed to have
                    it. How about me, am I allowed as well? You wondered if Rosies parents openly
                    disapproved of Rosie. I gave an example that I thought they were trying. You disagreed.
                    ok. Leave it at that. Please don’t read more into my comment than there was.

                    I, too, have always been kind to you and have let you have your say, and have
                    respected you as well. I actually thought we were friends.
                    Well, let me be the first to say I apologize for any mis-communications. I’ll
                    make sure to stay out of your way in all further posts.

    I would like to give the non- reading, can’t decipher road signs, Ms. Lauren Manzo a lesson in spelling….s t a y a w a y f r o m t h e i c e c r e a m. Also please keep in mind that if you are going to publicly announce that your Dad bought you lap band, be ready for varied opinions.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Yes, Lauren is too DUMB to realize that she may have won a minor little battle by asking Teresa to define “napalm.”

      But Teresa’s probably going to win the WAR because many people do not even CARE that Teresa cannot define napalm. They care enough about her to buy her sh*t and to keep talking about her.

      In other words, Teresa is RELEVANT.

      Lauren Manzo is NOT (and never WAS….and probably never WILL be. Hell, she’s not even relevant in her OWN damned family!! That SUCKS the big one. I’m pretty sure Teresa’s Mommy [and Daddy] LOVE her — unlike Lauren’s Mom….who probably would not even NOTICE that Lauren were missing if she were gone from the Manzo household for 90 days — while she would get to Hoboken on the first thing smokin’ if Albie or Chris did not tweet within the hour!!! *Shrug*).

        SMH SMH
        see, I just don’t get it.
        Lauren’s Mom and Dad don’t love her??
        Comments like these are relevant. ?
        I (we?) expect better from someone as
        intelligent as you~~
        I am dumbfounded.
        (I know, i’m just dumb)

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’m using hyperbole, NJ Bev.

          In all honesty, though, I seriously HAVE wondered if Caroline really DOES love Lauren. Some of the things I have heard her say to and about her own daughter do NOT sound like “love” to me. In fact, since Season 1, I have often found Caroline to be both verbally and emotionally abusive to Lauren, while she showers her sons with praise.

          I was also using hyperbole when I used the “relevant” example. Caroline BLATANTLY favors her sons over her only daughter. I am not the ONLY person that has noticed this. It has been commented on over and over. Caroline treats her son like they MATTER (e.g., are RELEVANT to her), and she often treats Lauren like she does NOT (e.g., is IRRELEVANT to her).

          Who said you were dumb? I certainly did not. I have NEVER said anything like that to you EVER. I would not say anything like that to you because I do not believe that you are dumb AT ALL.

          I apologize if you mistakenly got that impression. If you did get it, it was certainly not from ME.

          I DO think my comments are relevant, though. You may disagree with them; however, that does not mean that they are irrelevant.

          Also, the use of hyperbole and sarcasm are often used by intelligent people. Saying you expect “better” from me is a statement I find to be very JUDGMENTAL and UNFAIR.

          This is a casual blog about ridiculous housewives. It is NOT a discussion about the plight of refugees or about people fighting actual real-life wars. SERIOUSLY.

          • NJBev says:

            Honestly. You find me to be JUDGMENTAL and UNFAIR? SERIOUSLY.
            I just highlighted the same words you did. I don’t believe I said or inferred the
            things you are accusing me of and imo(am I still allowed one?) I think
            you grossly over-reacted to my comment. You pretty much proved my
            point without me even trying.
            I won’t bother you again. 😉

      • Vegas Chick says:

        Teresa is relevant? Cough, cough. Teresa is Juicy Joe in a tacky, shiny, green dress. She acts like him and speaks like him and couldn’t care less about anyone unless, of course, you are a consumer of her books, wine, teeth whitener or hair products… know that!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I’d say she is pretty relevant when pretty there is every other HW has a storyline that involves her.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            ugg, I will try that again..I have been up since 2am and can’t fall back to sleep.

    Ugly and UGLY all the way around!
    I’m only up with an ear infection…Good Golly Miss Molly!!!!

    STFU Mel!!!

    So sick of the PILE UP on Teresa. Done, Done, Done!!!

  151. Noelle says:

    Done. HMMMMMMMM…..

  152. Noelle says:

    GRRRRRRRRRR!!!!
    STFU LapBand Lauren!!
    Who on Gods green Earth let Rosie loose???? Disgusting!!

  153. princesspindy says:

    Lauren doesn’t know how to spell either, napalm doesn’t have a q…..

  154. Winston says:

    I am sorry but there is no way that Lauren only got a lap band. She looks like she had major cosmetic surgery on her face.

  155. Zoey says:

    I wish Kathy would have said…..T, you left you’re child unattended. She wouldn’t have had to say anything else all night!

  156. calipam says:

    Teresa is shrewd in her manipulations of all her relationships on the show, yet transparent enough to make it very clear that she is mean-spirited and extremely jealous of anyone who may threaten her crazy notion that she is “better than.” She is indeed narcissistic & in my opinion has no redeeming qualities to warrant ANYONE to want a friendship with her.
    She really is incapable of being a true friend and is THE trashiest woman of any on the Housewives franchise. I would dump this stupid excuse of a woman just like Caroline (and it turns out everyone else, includng her own brother) dd.

  157. LaineyLainey says:

    Is anybody watching Gallery Girls?? Oh gosh, I’m crying right now. Poor little Maggie. And Amy finally had something cool happen to her and finally made a friend… and then this… wow. I didn’t even know I cared this much. I think because they are the age of my kids, I’m getting all verklempt.
