Reunion for RHONJ Hit Ratings Out of the Park

It’s official.  The reunion episode 1 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey was the highest episode of the season,  delivering 3.5 Million Total Viewers.  It was the No. 1 Cable Unscripted Entertainment Telecast Of The Week.  Season 1: The Last Supper brought in similar ratings, but the Season 2 Reunion Special 1 (the one where Teresa shoved Andy) is still the mark to beat with 3.85 million viewers.  Press Release

Teresa’s In Touch Covers

Meanwhile, Teresa Giudice is on the cover of In Touch Magazine – “Inside my Breakdown”  Under pressure and out of control, Teresa lashes out at family and friends with violent insults.  Now she finally admits she’s cracking.  “I need help.”

I’m sure someone’s not happy!

Here’s a trip down Teresa’s In Touch memory lane…

The ones above were after last season’s reunion.

I think the one’s below were the ones they were talking about during Season 4

Flipping Out – House of Lies By Keida

The scene opens with Andrew’s leaving in a huff and a squeal.  Everyone’s freaking out.  What else has he lied out?  But you know what?  How’s all of their work plus Andrew’s going to get done?  Jeff is freaking out.  Of course, Gage is happy.  Jeff laments the fact that he didn’t check references.  He didn’t check the resume.  Are you kidding?  What kind of businessman is he?  Why am I siding with Gage?  After Jeff FINALLY checks Andrew’s resume, he’s found that the entire thing is embellished.  Will he learn from this?  No.  As long as you’re quirky and entertaining, you will have a job with Jeff Lewis.  At the Calabasas house, almost all the big work is done; now it’s time for the little things.  She has one HUGE, GINORMOUS mirror.  I would love that mirror!!!  In Lisa’s room, she has 10 boxes of clothes, but she told Jeff she only had 5.  She says, “I’m like Andrew. I lie.”  Hahaha.  What a snarky chick!  I love her.  Of course, Jeff starts to needle Jenny about her wedding.  This makes me think he might be jealous of her.  I bet he is.  He already had the Freudian slip in Chicago when he said “my day.” At Lisa’s house in Venice, Roberto is the contractor.  Jeff is the designer, not the project manager, so Roberto is home free.  He’s been in that house for almost a year instead of the planned six months.  Jeff’s famous lists of things that need to get done are not getting done.  They’re actually non-existent.  Jeff/Jenny give them to Roberto and who knows what he does with them.  This upsets Jeff.  He later finds that Roberto has given discounts on certain items, but then upcharged the discount elsewhere.  Apparently contractors do this all the time.  That sucks.  You must have to watch them all the time.  What’s happened to Roberto?  When he first took over the one job for Jeff, he was great.  During Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis, he was great.  There was no job too big or to demanding for him.  What is up with him?  Has he gotten a little taste of fame and is now spreading himself too thin?  Or is he really a d___ who feels he can get away with whatever because “he’s in charge”?  Most of the episode shows Jeff riding Roberto about things.  Jeff pretty much straightens Roberto out.  He also makes about $80,000 for project manager fees.  Not bad.  Seems a little cheap to me.  Oh yes, he’s doing all this project manager duties for free.  Many times has he mentioned that Lucy didn’t want to hire him as project manager, and this is what happens without a project manager.  I were to think he’d charge $150,000.  He’s definitely worth it. Gage has took it upon himself to start interviewing for a new design assistant.  Of course.  How lame.  He asks her what three words would describe her.  Puh-lease. Andrew calls Jeff and asks to meet him.  My first thought was that he might bring a gun.  Unfortunately Gage also thinks this.  Maybe that’s why I don’t like him.  We’re so alike. Roberto is still messing up.  He’s not getting things done.  He’s left appliances of the first floor of the house.  Anyone can come in and steal them.  Roberto, what is up with you?  Laura is lucky Jeff hates when anyone attempts to take advantage of him.  Roberto totally gives in to Jeff’s demands.  I didn’t think he would.  I guess the grass is greener on Jeff Lewis’s side. Now here’s the infamous showdown.  Jeff wants the real story.  Everyone in the company is there when Andrew shows up.  Andrew says the reason why he lies is because as a child he was abused by one of his dad’s friends.  Because of this, he’s created a fantasy world to protect him.  This seems true, but how can you know?  How can anyone trust him anymore?  Dammit, Gage!  Quit saying what I’m thinking!  When Andrew asks if he can return, Gage says no.  Big surprise.  Not. Jeff says yes.  Big surprise.  Not.  Poor Gage.  Jeff is not used to being a couple.  Jeff is used to being the boss, the project manager, the designer, the flipper, and everything else.  He’s going to have to learn that if he’s planning a family with Gage, he’s going to have to listen and compromise with Gage.  Dammit Gage.  I am not on your side.

Dancing with the Stars –All Stars, Elimination by COCFarm

I watched the whole show.  What’s wrong with me?! Going into tonight, Sabrina & Louie had the highest score of 26 and were asked by Len to dance their quick-step again. We then find out that Sabrina is safe along with Emmitt & Drew, however, Joey is not safe.  I’m bummed. Joey had a great dance that scored a 22.5, but it was really entertaining.  He scored in the middle. We also find out that next week will be a double elimination.  No one is happy to hear it.  Once Bristol & Kirstie are gone, the rest of the pack has some pretty great talent.  It seems likely that Sabrina, Gilles, Shawn & Apolo are probably the top contenders for the mirror ball trophy. Ugh.  Shawn, Kirstie (score 21) and Bristol (score 18) are safe.  Kelly, who scored a 22 is in the bottom with Joey. I gotta say, it bugs me that Bristol is going to stay in the competition.  I have nothing against her.  I don’t know her and I don’t particularly care to.  She is, in my eyes, not much of a star and it bugs me that politics get involved in a dancing competition.  That’s what I’m assuming, sorry if you disagree.  She also doesn’t exude anything that I can connect to.  She seems young, reserved and emotionally cloaked.  So she is safe and someone who is really trying hard is going to have to go home. The next group is Gilles, Melissa, Apolo & Helio.  Of this group, Helio is in the bottom three with a score of 23. Joey, Kelly & Helio are the bottom three but one of these things, is not like the others.  Did I just ‘date’ myself with that last line?  Two of them are truly in the bottom and the other is there for sport.  Kelly is safe. Helio had never been in the bottom two and it turns out his luck is with him.  Joey is going home.  He’s fine about it because he has a wedding to go to tomorrow, so he gets to go all Ramoja now and not worry about practice. I’m sorry to see him go.  He did a great routine dressed as Charlie Chaplin with Kym that was a crowd pleaser.  He was not someone who had a chance of winning the competition, but he was great to watch. Bummer. Until next week, keep dancin.’

Life After Top Chef – Meet the Chefs by Keida

Bravo’s new show Life After Top Chef follows four former Top Chef contestants, Richard Blais, Jennifer Carroll, Spike Mendelsohn, and Fabio Viviani. The show will follow them as they expand their careers through opening new restaurants and expanding their businesses to see what life is like after Top Chef. Chef Richard Blais is based in Atlanta. He was on Season 4 of Top Chef where he finished in 2nd place losing to Stephanie Izard. Throughout the season Blais managed to stay at the head of the pack, but according to the judges, the pressure of the finale overwhelmed him and underwhelmed them. He returned to Top Chef for Top Chef All-Stars. Again, Blais led the charge through many challenges. He meant business this time, and this time, he took the gold, winning Top Chef All-Stars. Based in Georgia, Blais has opened restaurants, business companies, product endorsements, and currently is busy opening a new restaurant, The Spence. Supporting him in his endeavors are his wife Jazmin and his two children. Chef Jen Carroll has never been one to take the backseat while the big boys sit up front. From Top Chef Las Vegas, Carroll was always a badass. Staying at the head of the pack, she made it to fourth place losing out to the Voltaggio brothers and Kevin Gillespie due to supposedly losing her confidence. Another contestant from Top Chef All-Stars, Carroll was shocked, and so was the audience, when she was told to pack her knives in the second episode. She’s known for making great food and making men cry. During the filming of Life After Top Chef, she was based in Philadelphia where she had been working in Chef Eric Ripert’s restaurant 10 Arts. Currently she’s working on opening her first restaurant Concrete Blonde, but is having a hard time locking down a location. Chef Spike Mendelsohn is a funny guy. Known as a jokester or one who isn’t very serious about his craft, yet he really is a talented and innovative chef. Growing up in his family’s restaurant instilled in Mendelsohn the love of cooking. A contestant on Top Chef Season 4, along with Richard Blais, Mendelson made it to the final five. He returned to Top Chef All-Stars with a seemingly thirst to win, but he was eliminated in episode 4 because he didn’t force Jamie Lauren to take a turn. I felt he could’ve done much better, but he wasn’t as aggressive as he should’ve been. After Top Chef All-Stars, he competed in the season 4 of Next Iron Chef alongside chefs Anne Burrell, Robert Irvine, and Marcus Samuelsson. I didn’t really think he belonged on this show, and he was eliminated on episode 1. Currently he lives in DC and owns two restaurants with his family, Good Stuff Eatery, which specializes in burgers and fries type cuisine, and We, the Pizza, a pizza place. Ever the innovative, he’s always looking for new ways to expand his repertoire. Chef Fabio Viviani made famous the saying, “This is not Top Chef Scallop.” As a contestant on Top Chef season 5, Viviani made it to the final 5 and was eliminated in a double elimination. However, he did win Fan Favorite that year. He also returned to Top Chef All-Stars where he formed a very strong bromance with Richard Blais. He was eliminated in episode 9 in the infamous Jimmy Fallon “borgor” incident. However, he’s a winner by many standards. Working in a restaurant since he was 14 in Firenze, Italy, he quickly owned nightclubs in Italy. Moving to the US, he now owns 2 restaurants in California, Osteria Firenze in LA and Café Firenze in Ventura county. He’s also planning on opening a restaurant in Chicago. Besides being a restauranteur, he has countless endorsements, an internet food show, and many other irons in the fire, supposedly he’s William Shatner’s personal chef. And despite the fact he pretended to be auditioning for chef of Heather Dubrow’s non-existent restaurant she and her friends were planning to open, he does partner with other restaurants. _____________________________

  1. ladyballs says:

    first?

  2. LA_Debra says:

    second day in a row?

  3. Zoey says:

    Sooo glad I’m not first,lol! I know what comes with being first here…can’t handle even thinking about being in the same ROOM with George! Lainey won him and now she wants to give him away, haha.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Poor Lainey…she is stuck with Dirty Pervi George!!!

      • Zoey says:

        Haha, well, on a positive note, she’ll have use of that gorgeous condo in Miami…..lots of room in there to run away from him, lol!!!

        Guess she’ll have to auction him off to unsuspecting women! OR, instead of to an abuse charity luncheon, let’s invite him to a women’s anger management meeting, ha! Let him try to ‘poke’ them and see what he gets, lol.

  4. Zoey says:

    Going back up to read the blog now. Thanks for blogging!

    Thought I’d share this song with yous guys. I watched The Good Wife for the first time since you all recommended it, and enjoyed it! However… though cute, I can’t get this song outta my head!

  5. Powell says:

    Good morning all. I was blocked by Kathy & Jac on Twitter. Hmmm. I wonder why? :-). Have a good day.

    • lizzle says:

      Not my Powell! If they blocked you, one of the sweetest people around, then they have self-esteem problems. It’s the Michael Jackson disease… where all they want are “yes men” around… not me… I want someone to tell me that I am out of control and need to chill. Or that what I said or did wasn’t very nice. Or that if I have one more plastic surgery procedure then I will start to look like the “cat lady”

      • Powell says:

        🙂 Thks lizzle. All I did was tell Jac to lay off of Twitter & going on about T, and I told Kathy she should be ashamed of the way she spoke about her aunt. Who new that their behavior is appropriate & right and I’m wrong? Oh well. I guess my momma just taught me too well. 😉

  6. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Windows are open and high of 103 today. Cooling down next week.
    Yesterday someone posted Caroline’s wedding picture. Can’t remember if it was here or at SH. She was so beautiful in that picture. Then you see her upthread holding the In Touch magazine and it makes you wonder what the hell happened?
    Teresa obviously is trying to get her family out of debt. If that means shilling herself to a rag magazine so be it. No one in their right mind believes anything in those rag mag anyway.
    I watched the Wendy Williams interview on-line and let me say Teresa held her own. I don’t like Wendy and never watch her show. The audience love Teresa and Wendy probably held back after watching their reaction to Teresa introduction.
    I am going to be watching Melissa very carefully in the next reunion. She was awfully quiet last Sunday.

    • skogsstig says:

      Just for fun, here is a link to wedding photos of all the Jersey “ladies” on their wedding days. Enjoy. 😉

      • lovemamaearth says:

        Thanks. welcome if you’re new.

        • Thanks, lovemamaearth. ♥
          Not new, but without noticing, I posted under my old handle – the one other posters found hard to deal with. So I renamed myself. 🙂

          • lovemamaearth says:

            OHHH now I recognize you. 🙂 Great to see you. ❣(º♥◡♥º)❣

            • MamaZ says:

              CAroline was cute in her picture. Dina is much prettier. Teresa and Joe were a really good looking couple. Kathy was beautiful. I wish she hadn’t changed her nose. 😦

              • lori says:

                I agree her nose was fine before..now not so much 😦 Her son looks exactly like his dad and i never saw that before I saw this wedding picture.

              • I Need A Life! says:

                What happened to Albert?

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Good question. I never realized until I saw that wedding pic how MUCH Lauren looks like her father facially. I mean, she’s like his female version. I guess Albie looks a bit like Caroline used to look. I don’t know WHO THE HELL Christopher looks like!

                  I think I’m going to start a rumor that Chris Manzo is not REALLY Albert’s son. Maybe I’ll say that he is the product of a torrid affair between Caroline and Bernie Kerik — or hell, maybe I’ll pick someone else just for the hell and for the fun of it!!

                  I’m getting off the blog to go and do that RIGHT NOW…..

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    Donald Rumsfeld?

                    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                      No, because there’s actually no resemblance. Help me out here, CAP. You MUST think of someone Chris Manzo kinda resembles. Give him a gap in his teeth, dye his hair brown and he looks a bit like Alfred E. Neuman, who graces the cover of MAD Magazine.

                      He also looks, if his hair were dyed red, a bit like Howdy Doody.

                      We cannot use Alfred or Howdy, though, because one is simply a drawing, and the other is simply a ventriloquist’s dummy.

  7. SoutheastVA says:

    Non-Bravo related topic. I got a tweet cool response from Eric Braeden. He plays Victor Newman on The Young & the Restless. He just joined twitter a few weeks ago. I’m not usually one to care if I get a response but I’ve been watching him for 30 years of my life.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      I meant a “cool tweet response”….I need coffee!!

      • BB says:

        Neato SoutheastVA. I was in Sears the other day looking at dishwashers and I think that was him on the TV screen in the TV department. Did he just get into some kind of accident and was acting like he didn’t know where he was?

    • Zoey says:

      That’s cool, Victor Newman himself!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Victor (Eric Braeden), from what I remember from my days of watching Y&R, always had this way of speaking in a very low, whispery tone that always, despite the whispery part, made him seem so powerful — kinda like Marlon Brandon in “The Godfather.”

      I haven’t watched Y&R in years, but I recently saw Eric Braeden on some talk show interview. He came across as a very lovely man who said how he just LOVED having granddaughters because he only had sons. He said how his granddaughters were just so much FUN and how girls were just so different from boys. You could tell her really adored them. He seemed like a family man.

      Congrats on the tweet response, SVA!

  8. BB says:

    Thanks NMD, Keida and COC Farm for the updates. Life after TC looks interesting. I especially like Richard and Fabio. As for Flipping Out, I think Gage needs to find someone ready for a serious committed “equal partner” relationship. I don’t know if Jeff will ever be ready for that. I also don’t understand why Jeff doesn’t just stay at West Knoll and move straight to Grammercy instead of moving to the interim place. Did he explain the reasoning for that and I missed it? I think there’s a psychological reason for not getting Grammercy finished. That would mean Jeff would have to make a permanent commitment to his relationship with Gage and starting a family. Armchair analyzing here.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      ITA with everything! Jeff fell in love with the work he did and just bought the place! No discussion with Gage – strange for a committed relationship.

    • keida says:

      I also agree. Jeff is totally not ready for husband, family, and house. He’s too into himself and career. I think he got caught up in the dream last season. Now, as long as he can keep Grammercy under contruction, he won’t have to make that next step.

    • Zoey says:

      Their relationship is definitely interesting. They seem so opposite! Of course they say opposites attract, but Gage seems to dislike any type of drama, and Jeff creates and thrives on it!
      I figure surely Gage must secretly love the drama?? I liked him at first, but now he just seems sort of cold and unfeeling. Again, opposite of Jeff’s warm heart, deep down.

      I used to feel bad for thinking he looks like the Whoville people, which is not necessarily a bad thing, but now that I dislike him/his character on the show, I’m ok with it!

      The business side of things is a bit odd, too. Gage refers to it as ‘Jeff’s’ business, which it was, but wouldn’t you say ‘our’ business now that you are partners? Maybe they have a clear cut financial pre nup (without the ‘nup’) and Gage is a paid employee and it remains Jeff’s business, which would be smart of Jeff in case they break up. Kind of selfish though, imo.
      And, Jeff makes all the decisions for the home they will be living in. He overrode Gage’s opinion a few times, that they showed, but probably more. Gage definitely seems to rate second in the relationship rather than an equal, yet Jeff does seem to respect his opinion.

      Maybe when you date Jeff you just have to know that he has to get his way most of the time!

  9. Updated blog with US Weekly Cover with Jacq, Caroline, and Melissa – she owns her behavior and seeks help and they slam her. Who’s got a better PR team?

  10. Boobah says:

    Happy belated birthday sparklemuffy and Rubie Newbie!! Hope you both had a great day. Happy belated Birthday to anyone I have missed.

    ((Cusi)) Thoughts and prayers are with your grandniece.

    Thanks NMD, BB, Lady C, and everyone involved with the blog. I am really enjoying it. Your efforts are very appreciated!!

    Going back up to read todays blog…Happy Hump Day all!

  11. plainviewsue says:

    Note all of Teresa’s articles are about her & her family.

    Melissa’s deal with US Weekly has her slaying Teresa.

    And to top all of the hypocrisy of these NJ women, a new US Weekly just came out with CAROLINE, JACQUELINE and MELISSA on the cover trashing Teresa, how TERESA bullies them and they dish about Teresa’s marriage.

    I just can’t anymore. People wonder why viewers get so involved with the women. I cannot stand the hypocrisy of all season long these vile judgemental women have criticized Teresa and her managzine covers. And once the reunion has been aired and Andy cant question them about it, they are now all on magazine covers.

    Also, Kim D in an interview w/Star Magazine (yeah, I know) says once and for all that she set up Melissa & Teresa had no knowledge of it.

    Teresa could take a lie detector test, be water boarded, tortured, and they still will never believe her. Their agenda is for everyone to hate Teresa.

    What fools. Her fourth book is coming out. Melissa is performing at flea markets. Kathy is selling a canolli kit, not even her desserts.

    Oh, and Teresa is on the cover with those witches. Cos without her on the cover, who would care what any of them have to say.

    • I saw your tweet with the cover so I updated the blog to include it 🙂

    • PJ says:

      One thing that I still can’t wrap my hear around is why it’s OK for Kathy to go after both of Teresa’s parents, one of whom is blood related. But Teresa merely mentions Kathy and Rosie’s father and Rosie goes postal while Kathy smirks and let’s Rosie take care of her dirty business. I find that to be very strange and I think this is the reason Teresa doesn’t like Kathy, because this is the kind of person Kathy is at heart.

      • melthehound says:

        Because they are all Do as I Say, not as I Do. When they see it, the Giudice girls will be so proud of Aunti Rosie.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I think it’s weirder how they have convinced themselves on twitter that it was fair game because Teresa brought the parents into it when she mentioned her own mother.

          Honestly, if Teresa is as bad as they say she is why would Kathy assume what Teresa saying about her mother knowing (about Richie and Kathy’s marriage) was true . How can she lash out at her Aunt over something Teresa says she knew.

          I also think when they were filming, they must have had a break after that or something and that when something happened where Teresa’s dad walked away.

          There also seems to be some sort of collusion on part of the other HW and their hangers on because they keep on tagging Teresa or mentioning Teresa and saying :”Shame on you” knowing that is a trigger for her.

          • melthehound says:

            To me, her extended family is All worthless. If she’s really cut ties, good for her.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              ITA. Since the Season 3 Reunion, Teresa has seemed to be taking the approach of doing her best to focus on her immediate family, her businesses and on her parents. She seems like she is doing her best to simply IGNORE the rest of her cast mates. She cannot TOTALLY ignore them as she has to address them and certain events involving them due to her BRAVO contract and her job as a housewife (blogs, certain interviews to promote her products where she may be asked about them, etc.).

              They and theirs have bashed her on Twitter and in interviews constantly for about a year now. With regard to Twitter, she has refused to respond in kind. With regard to the interviews of her that I have seen, she does her best not to get too in-depth talking about the rest of them or bashing them. It has only been very recently (since the Season 4 Reunion) that she has actually fought back a little by revealing Jac’s texts to her (and that was only IN RESPONSE TO Jac only showing SELECT texts SHE sent to Teresa after Teresa said on Anderson Cooper’s show that Jac has consantly texted her, although she has barely responded, and she was a little creeped out/scared by it).

              Teresa’s BEST policy is to do her best to IGNORE them. It is clear that Jac has wanted Teresa’s attention for some reason (with the constant tweets and bashing, which also included her DM’ing people to tell them about Joe Giudice’s cheating). It is also clear that Melissa, via the constant awful bashing of Teresa by her own sisters and her own makeup artist, wants Teresa’s attention too (although, as usual, she is sneakier about it and gets others to do her dirty work).

              Ignoring all of that toxic B.S. not only allows Teresa the time to focus on more positive and productive things, it also is the ultimate F.U. and insult to the rest of that toxic crew, as it basically says, “You people are no longer worth ANY of my time or attention because I have MUCH better things to do with my time and MUCH better things and people to whom to pay attention. I have now become INDIFFERENT and ‘Ray Charles’ to all of your b*llsh*t!”

              The opposite of LOVE is NOT HATE. It is INDIFFERENCE. *Shrug* I’m glad she cut all ties with the rest of those fools. She’s probably much happier now because she did so.

          • kit9 says:

            Because obviously Kathy knows T’s mother and apparently she’d been telling other lies about her. And let’s not forget Teresa’s mom is nasty piece of work in her own right. I remember at a prior Posche debacle, she was right there in the middle of the scrum screaming her head off. And guess who she was screaming at? Kathy. Can you imagine Kathy’s mother doing that? Kath’s mom scolded them once for talking about Teresa. But, T’s mom goes ape-sh*t screaming at Kathy in public. And, if T’s mom spread lies about Kath getting a tummy tuck and she didn’t..she, like her daughter, is a dirty liar. And, I’m inclined to believe the apple doesn’t fall far from the lying tree.

            • PJ says:

              Teresa’s mother is not a public person and it is not obvious at all that she said anything bad about Kathy or told any lies about her. If my understanding of the situation you are referencing is correct it had to do with Kathy talking trash about Teresa and Teresa’s Mother was only defending her daughter. If what Kathy did at the reunion is an indication of what Kathy is like, and I think it is, then I don’t blame Teresa’s Mother because she has probably had her fill of dealing with Kathy.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Is it apparent that Teresa’s mom has been telling lies about Kathy? Or is that only a ‘claim’. Yes, she did yell at Kathy at the fashion show last year but it was a pretty short burst and she was reacting to what Teresa told her. I am sure just thinking about the baptism brought up a lot of painful emotions which is why she seemed to over react.

              I still think Kathy was wrong for what she said and that Rosie acted like a lunatic.

          • PJ says:

            RR I don’t do twitter but I can see them all justifying their actions and blasting Teresa. What else do they have to talk about?

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Not much, a lot of tweets that try to try and sell something…and RT’s anything nasty someone tweets to them about Teresa.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              The ONLY things of interest OTHER THAN Teresa about which many of them have to talk is all of their own SKELETONS.

              I wish those DUMMIES would “recognize”!! CONTROVERSY and SCANDAL sell!!

              They should get off their high horses and start getting paid to dish the dirt on THEMSELVES (just like Teresa did)!!

    • Donna says:

      LOL canolli kits, After reading about katfish kits, Ann Burrell was on the food network showing us how to make canolli.

      Mel had every right to address T publicly after T was complicit with having her called a stripper on national tv. Teresa was absolutely involved with/knew about the set up. Up to her eyeballs. My fav T is Guilty As Sin moment(and there were SO many)was when T made sure to say that when Mel was a teacher, she didn’t work nights(*wink*see, the whore was available to strip nights!*wink*). That and the warm beaming smile she gave the bald sleaze when he came up to the table.

      And, nothing Kim D says can be believed. She’ll say whatever she needs to to continue to be on the show and that means taking the hit for T. And, according to Jac, she didn’t agree to do with that cover, it’s pulled quotes from the reunion and a public event.

      • PJ says:

        Mel had to extend her fifteen minutes. The only way for Mel to do that is to talk about Teresa.

        So anyone who defends Teresa is not to be believed, but of course anyone who says bad things about Teresa should be believed immediately.

        I sure didn’t see a smile on Teresa’s face when Angelo came up to the table. I did see a smirk on Jac’s face though and I saw Caroline and Lauren pretending not to notice him and Melissa trying to look innocent claiming not to know him but then she did know his name and where he worked.

    • savannah111 says:

      Why didnt Teresa just give her a call and let her know about it, and when the guy got to the table, Teresa could have followed him where ever he was going at the bar and cut a bitch like she normally does, She has her brother in law, Teresa is out of Character , she didnt really act rught that night she seems very much off

  12. It's all too much! says:

    I find it interesting that Kathy didn’t join with Mel, Caroline, and Jacqueline on the cover of the magazine. Is she feeling a sense of family?

    • VV says:

      Kathy Who?

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        EXACTLY.

        I truly wish and hope that Kathy refused to appear on the cover out of a sense of family; however, it is probably more likely that the mag decided not to even photoshop Kathy in because it does not even find Kathy relevant enough to do so. *Shrug* I could be wrong (but I doubt it).

    • MamaZ says:

      I doubt it. She’s the Cindy Barshop of NJ. Nobody remembers her.

  13. lovemamaearth says:

    I’m still reading comments so sorry if this has been commented on, but does anyone have thoughts on the news anchor Jennifer Livingston response to Kenneth Krause’s strong criticism about her weight ? http://www.usatoday.com/story/ondeadline/2012/10/02/wisconsin-tv-anchor-weight-response-bully/1609319/

    • BB says:

      I read about and viewed her response yesterday. I had a conflicted mixed reaction to it. What are your thoughts about it?

      • lovemamaearth says:

        I do think public figures are kind of role models. Jennifer did say the guy’s comments were well articulated so she didn’t just respond willynilly. I have mixed feelings too.

        We as a nation need to eat healthier and live healthier. And too many men (especially) judge a woman by how she looks. What if his comments got her fired? Did he ever write similar things to men who are overweight?
        This is what the guy said.
        Hi Jennifer,
        It’s unusual that I see your morning show, but I did so for a very short time today. I was surprised indeed to witness that your physical condition hasn’t improved for many years. Surely you don’t consider yourself a suitable example for this community’s young people, girls in particular. Obesity is one of the worst choices a person can make and one of the most dangerous habits to maintain. I leave you this note hoping that you’ll reconsider your responsibility as a local public personality to present and promote a healthy lifestyle.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          PS I guess it was just an email to her. So she could have kept it private. Another bit is that Kenneth Krause is a lawyer. Hmmmm… More mixed feelings on my part. Don’t we have a general rule here not to complain to people here from email stuff? So wouldn’t a newsroom have at least that standard?

        • BB says:

          The gender of the author of the e-mail didn’t even enter my mind. I would suspect that the type of bullying this newscaster is referring to that is going on in the schools and to young people is just as much if not more girl on girl bullying than boy on girl bullying. My question is if the e-mail she’s using as an example is a form of bullying, because that’s what the she is inferring. Her message is great, but is she using a good example of what bullying is? Is the e-mail nice? No. Is it a form of bullying? I’m not convinced. A person cannot control the color of their skin, their race, even their acne, as she says. But a grown person like her can control their obesity. The writer of the e-mail was not commenting on a child’s appearance. I’m overweight by the way. She says she has a thick skin, but I wonder about that. Just my random thoughts about it.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            Great points BB. I think she said that the email sets up the atmosphere of judging others by appearance and then bullying plus it was Livingston’s husband who initially got angry about it. Our local news had a woman who could relate and she explained her point of view. Gayle King commented on it too.

            And regarding her thick skin, she did say if the criticism had been about her delivery or accuracy of the news it would have been fair. I agree with that. We have some chunky guys on our news and wonder if they get similar mail. And last thought, I wondered if Jenny Craig would contact her now. She might get rich. lol

        • lizzle says:

          I don’t know what Jennifer eats or how much she exercises, because that wasn’t addressed… but I think to have the Jennifers, the Oprahs and the Melissa McCarthys on TV is a good thing. This woman is a working mother of three children… she is on TV and is not perfect… heck, even I look up to her!

          • lovemamaearth says:

            Lizzle and Tin, love your comments. lol

            • lizzle says:

              Thanks mama! I love these types of discussions.

              And BTW… I don’t think she was bullied. I’m not sure if she said she was bullied or not… but she did equate her situation with the bullying of children and her concern for her daughters.

          • BB says:

            I don’t have a problem with any of them. The tv newscaster is the one who brought it to the fore. Like she said, I don’t know her.

            • lizzle says:

              I agree with your comments above. I like these type of discussions. When I was working out today I was thinking about media and the effects it has had on our lives (because there is a tv in the gym that is constantly on CNN). The discussion about Jennifer is a much more mild subject than the one I was thinking about earlier… and I will leave it at that 🙂

              • lovemamaearth says:

                And the subtle effects can go unnoticed and snowball. Women have been on the short end of equality for a very long time. Mad Man shows a wee bit of that reality.

                I saw the documentary on Walmart and the woman in one section was interviewed. The whole team were supposed to take turns cleaning the bathrooms. But since she was the only woman, it was always her turn.

                • MamaZ says:

                  You all know I am an advocate for healthy diets and exercise. But emailing a woman to chastise her about her weight is just wrong.

                  As Ms. Livingstone noted she is aware of her weight problem. You cannot shame a person into losing weight, just ask Caroline Manzo, she tried to shame her daughter.
                  Of course a person can have a great deal of control over their weight but many women have hormonal issues that contribute. And in the case of working women, especially if they are mothers losing weight can be an overwhelming task. Between the job, the children, the husband and the housework there aren’t many hours left for exercise and healthy cooking.

                  I would not go so far as to call it bullying but only because Ms. Livingstone refused to be a victim. Just because it was a private email doesn’t make it less bullying. Many young people who are bullied are harassed by email and social media. It may have been meant for her eyes only but she was under no obligation to keep it private. I’m glad she spoke out because many bullied teens are too shocked and embarrassed by the cyberbullying they receive that they keep it quiet.

                  Everyone has faults and flaws. What gives Mr. Krause the right to point them out? And as other people have said there is a stronger bias against overweight women than there is for men.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I love this comment.

  14. PJ says:

    Cannoli you either make yourself from scratch or pick up at a good bakery I personally think a kit is a really stupid idea.

    These women are such hypocrites and the viewing audience is not supposed to notice, frankly many Teresa haters don’t notice or don’t mind the hypocrisy.

    It would appear that Caroline, Melissa and Kathy can’t sell a magazine article without Teresa being attached to it in some way, kind of amusing.

    • BB says:

      I read somewhere that Kathy’s QVC appearance is tentatively set for 12/15 (didn’t see a time). It will be interesting to see how many kits she sells. I’m with you. Either I’m going to go buy some at a bakery or find a recipe, buy the ingredientces and make them (most likely the first option).

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        And “everybody knows” that freshly made cannolis are the only way to go – make them yourself or go to a great bakery – not from a kit!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Seriously, I don’t get the point of it.
          There is still labor involved with using canolli kit, so it’s not convenient nor are they fresh.

    • mkvalle says:

      I’ve seen cannoli kits in specialty stores. I was in the market for them a while back when I catered a wedding rehearsal dinner, I was looking for a shortcut! They were too pricey so I went a different direction.

      • MamaZ says:

        I think most of the crap they sell on QVC and HSN is stupid.

        • princesspindy says:

          except Serious Skin Care and Adrienne Arpel,and Bare Minerals, they have some excellent products, imho but I took the channels off my remote cuz late at night some things look sooooo good, lol!

          • MamaZ says:

            I don’t know anything about Serious Skin Care but both Adrienne Arpel and Bare Minerals were around before they sold on these stations. They already had credibility. But a lot of the stuff, like Kathy’s Cannoli Kit is straight to QVC. It reminds me of those stright to DVD movies, lol. They are always stinkers!

            • princesspindy says:

              Just the thought of a kit makes me think of yuck flavor and preservatives and you are going to have to buy the dairy products to put into it right, unless it is some powder that you whip with milk, right? It just sounds gross, and the shells, are they going to be premade? It’s all gross! And you are right about BM and AA, Serious Skin Care was launched on HSN, she is married to Sly Stallone, I am moving away from a lot of the products cuz she has changed the formulas and added fragrance. But AA has fragrance free stuff.

            • looneylucy says:

              I have rosecea on my forehead and cheeks. Adrienne’s Vitamin C caplets have been the only thing to keep it under control. I’ve trie Este Lauder, Clinique and Lancome. Everybody to their own (skin problems)!l

          • trudie says:

            LOL pindy, late at night when I can’t sleep and can’t find anything to watch on tv, I watch QVC in bed. I am always glad that my credit cards are safely downstairs and I am too lazy to walk down and get them!

            • princesspindy says:

              IKR!?!

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              ^5, Trudie! I can SO relate.

              I once went through a very brief period where I watched infomercials and bought some of the DUMBEST stuff. For instance, I bought a MAGIC BULLET, even though it basically did the same thing as the cheese grater and the blender I already POSSESSED. And I was SOOO excited to wait for and get my Magic Bullet. I kept calling it just “my bullet,” though, and eventually my friends asked me why I would be bragging so openly about being excited about purchasing and waiting for a sexual aid.

              I did not know WHAT IN THE HELL they were talking about. We finally got it straight, though, and I was mortified once I realized that some of my family and friends now probably thought of me as some kind of pervert.

              I also bought this contraption that allegedly wrapped around your waist and allowed you to develop a 6-pack by just SITTING there with it wrapped around your waist. I tried it TWICE and gave it up because all it did was make my stomach sweat. I gave it to my gay husband who SWORE it was going to work for him because I was probably operating it wrong.

              It didn’t.

              I also boutht some exercise DVD’s that gave me some type of muscle sprain/injury after I finished with the WARM-UP portion. Phuck the actual exercising part. I couldn’t even make it through the damned WARM-UP! I forgot to WHOM I bestowed those DVD’s.

              Finally, after I confessed to some of my friends that I’d developed a bit of an infomercial problem, they talked about me and laughed at me and judged me SO BAD that I just snapped out of it.

              I love my friends!! They keep me grounded. 😀

              • trudie says:

                🙂 Detox, you do make me laugh!

                On 9/11, my husband was in India on business. I was home with 3 small kids and was terrified that something would happen to my husband and/or us. Anyways…. after watching the various news programs every night, I would wander over to QVC in the wee hours of the morning. I don’t know why, but each and every night for a week I bought Oxyclean (this was before it was sold in stores). Big containers, small containers, sprays, etc. I had more Oxyclean than I knew what to do with!

        • looneylucy says:

          Why would you say that MamaZ? Some of us live in small towns where bigger retail stores are not available. Even if Sears or Pennys are in small towns, the inventory correlates to the population. I can go to Sears for a washer I saw in the Sunday ads. It’s not in stock and I’ll have to wait 10 days for delivery. I don’t know where you live, but if I want to buy a tablecloth, I can guaranteee you I will have to go online and pay s&h and wait 5-7 days for delivery. I’ve bought many things from QVC & HSN. Even when I used to live in a metropolis.

          I will say, though, both networks have gone to hell in a handbasket in the last few years. S&H charges for one.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      The fact that Teresa still has to appear somewhere on the cover is slightly amusing to me too. I mean, the mag chose to put their mortal enemy Teresa on the cover with the rest of them instead of their BFF Kathy.

      Even though I no longer like Jac, and I think she has gone crazy, I AM glad that “People” magazine had only her and Nicholas on the cover for the interview she gave about autism. Sweet little Nicholas and autism should have definitely been the FOCUS because he and the subject are so much more important than some petty, “Look how Teresa ‘DONE ME WRONG’!!! Let me count the ways!!” B.S.

    I know there were people who commented on Alex’s towels (Aluxe Home) when they came out. Well, she made it to Groupon. For $45, you get a 10 piece bath set. It’s a decent deal, figured I’d share with anyone still interested in her stuff.

    • lizzle says:

      Thanks… I am a Groupon addict, so yes… I will be looking at that deal

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Speaking of Alex & Simon, I will be watching them on “Couples Therapy” tonight. I’ve seen the previews for the show a few times. Either I blinked and missed Alex & Simon in the previews, or they were not in them at all.

    Good Morning all.
    Thanks for more great blogs ladies.

    NJBev, I left a message for you on the other blog.

    • NJBev says:

      Holy Moly,
      Thanks, RR for the heads up-
      I would have missed it otherwise.
      What a sweet story, thank you so much for
      sharing it. I love hearing about your little RR’s.
      They remind me so much of my own little NJkid,
      when she was younger. So please, if you ever
      see me on site, throw me a story!
      And remember to write some of the stories down in
      their baby books, so they can recount the stories to
      THEIR own little RR’s.
      You are such a great mother, so NORMAL!!!
      BTW, my daughter went to a Lutheran pre-school
      as well, and I know what you mean about the “lessons”
      they learn. Don’t even think about it. They don’t remember
      anything from that age. anything. I guess that’s why
      the “Church” doesn’t start until Communion age!!!

      thanks again RR. 🙂

  17. JustDee says:

    These women are STUPID!
    Kathy could have come out with a Dessert Cookbook a year ago and made a killing. She could be on book two by now. Who cares about a Cannolli Kit?!?
    Same goes for Sonja, a toaster oven cookbook a couple of years ago would have been great. And SHE could be on book 2 or 3 by now instead of still fiddling with the actual Toaster Oven.
    Speaking of books, Sam posted an interesting scoop about the sales of HWs books on the Book Chat page – https://lynnfam.com/book-chat/#comment-26026

    • Sus says:

      Oh, I so agree!! They waste their opportunities. Who is really going to buy a toaster oven made by SonJa?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        You know how on shows like Million Dollar Listing how they say if a home is on the market too long, the listing goes stale and no one is interested?
        This is how I feel when some of these HW talk about what the are ‘going to do’, when over a year later nothing has happened…I am over it.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        LOL I got sick of my toaster oven and purchased a toaster that also toasts bagels to perfection…..kitchen technology keeps advancing and SonJa should have just written the cookbook. cause we are talking the razor and the razor blades here. If you have a toaster oven you would need a cookbook and if you bought a new toaster oven you would still want a cookbook! IMO, Sonja just likes her picture taken.

      • lizzle says:

        Well… if it has a shirtless man on the box… me! (sarcastically)

    if we don’t believe what’s in these magazines, should we believe what’s written in the mag that features melissa, jaq, and caroline on the cover?

    • mkvalle says:

      That’s the thing about rag magazines, they don’t print the truth. A sentence or two maybe true but that’s it. Think about all the stories written on other celebrities. Read them but don’t take the stories as the gospel truth. I like to look at the pictures while standing in the checkout line.

    • Exit4 says:

      The us interview is directly from their mouths. All ditect wuotea from them. Picked it up today. It’s magazine Wednesday! Whether you believe it or not depends on I’d you believe what they say. There is a quote from a source who is so obviously Caroline…

      I wish I kept the in touches. The articles do don’t match the covers! The us mag article does match the cover, but they don’t choose it anyway. If anyone wants a summary I have the mag.

      • Exit4 says:

        “direct quotes” iPhone really screwed up that one!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I want a summary, Exit (Thanks for offering too. :-D).

        I would really appreciate it because I have some new medical bills to pay. I’m forced to hand over the $4 or $5 I would have spent to those bills instead of giving it to “US Magazine” (even though I must admit that I have NOT been above standing in the stores and reading those mags for FREE. Speed reading can come in so handy at times. 😀 *Shrug*).

  23. trudie says:

    I apologize if this has already been posted, but Lady Brooks (http://ladybrooks.com/) has a nice write-up about Lynn.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      What a lovely piece about Lynn.

    • Chicago Diane says:

      It is a lovely piece- and very true. Are there/were there 4 million readers? I has seemed like a lot of mostly-lurkers like myself have come out a bit since she died, but that number sounds high- it makes me think there must be many more!!

      With the wonderful work each of you who are blogging now have done- my guess is they are still there!

      Earlier in the week, someone mentioned what I have been feeling – wishing I could hear Lynn’s reaction to the reunion, and her wise/informed comments behind the scenes, to put it in persepctive. She would be in her element here- and each of you have been terrific. But this unique circumstance- all this discussion of production interference and involvement, as well as the year-long delay as these few sessions have been built/set up-
      a lot of information is coming out about how these shows are produced, and I would welcome her knowledge of what is real, and what is not.

      It is easier to engage our emotions/ reaction when in fact the behaviour is more real than set -up. I am challenged now to sort through what is real , and what manipulated, and it seems most if not all is manipulated at some level. It is one thing for the producers to “rev” up their “stars” by telling them things to get them upset, etc. It is something very different when everyone is in on a set-up it but one person- and we are right to react to that. Or when the story is completely made up-and some one/group is made to look bad, when the production supports the view of some “stars” , so that the audience sees behaviour that labels some, not others, in whatever the color of the day is.
      . But if I was one of them, at some point, I would doubt the veracity of what I was being told, and search for the truth a different way. And my reactions would be less real. I gather the producers choose the “star to go after” based on who has the touger skin or needs the job more – and that some characters are better at handling the manipulation/acting than others. But why should the viewers buy it? They are engaged when it feels real, and judge/react and comment accordingly. Why stick with it when it all is a figment of producers’ minds, becomes a racket, and is mostly ficticious?

      The point of these reality TV shows was for it to be about real people in their unique lives, and expose the viewers to situations other than those they would otherwise routinely experience. It changes when it all becomes manipulated, doesn’t it?

      This is the confusion I am having- RH- esp. NJ- gets high ratings partly because the women are unique, and live in what appears to be a financial level many aspire to- yet the issues they encounter at some level hit home with people- they are about family infighting, jealousy, marriage infidelity, financial issues, lies, etc. How can the audience take any of it seriously when in fact the issues are manufactured and the stars acting?

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Thanks for sharing that nice piece.

      I agree with her comparison of Bethenny to Ramona.

    • AZGirl says:

      That was so nice. Lynn was the “pulse” of Bravo and the Housewives.

    • mkvalle says:

      I’m going to play the devil’s advocate here…while Lady Brooks write up was nice, it was highly exaggerated. Lynn is probably chuckling about having many of the reality stars fearing her and having her opinions used as the measure Bravo executives used to determine casting decisions. She’d be saying, if only….

    Keida I’m so sorry Gage was right & you agreed w/everything he said. There’s always next week. 😀

    COCFarm I didn’t watch DWTS. I was looking at the tweets on Twitter. I should’ve known they where going to pull the,same stunt w/Bristol. Pam Anderson was #1 to go & Bristol shouldve been #2. What are they, scared of Sarah Palin? Geesh. Bristol shouldn’t have been brought back as an All Star in the 1st place but DWTS producers wanted the controversy again. Ugh!!

    • cocfarm says:

      Didn’t even think of that Powell but you are probably right on with that. It makes the show unwatchable for me. I watch it so my mom and I can chat about it but she isn’t even into it this time around.

    Keida I think this is a good cast for Life After. Fabio also does so much on tv, commercials & Good Morning America are 2 I can think of now. I think this is going to be fun.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I like Fabio and Richard, but I can’t stand Spike (I think he is obnoxious) and I have no idea who the girl is. I think they should have went with the Vitagio Brothers and Angelo instead.

      I liked Jennifer. She was in the season that was all strong men including the vitagio bros. she was the woman that went the farthest.

    Would anyone have hired Andrew back? I like that Jeff is giving him another chance. I would have made it a condition that he gets some therapy!

    • MamaZ says:

      I like that Jeff was compassionate but I think it was a bad business decision. I wonder if he took him back for the purpose of the show only? If I were one of Jeff’s clients I would not want Andrew, a person with admitted honesty issues, to have access to my home.
      I’m not a lawyer but I do have experience with hiring and terminating employees and while you can fire someone for lying on a resume I don’t believe you can make therapy a condtion for employment. Unless it’s for substance abuse.

                I probably didn’t. I’m going to go back and look for it. I ended up jumping off the blog SUPPOSEDLY to watch something on television and, before I knew it, I was SNORING like a Senior Citizen. I meant to get back to the blog, but the Sandman came and prevented it.

    Off topic – but deja vu memories of Kooky Lollipops:

    I was catching up on lot of missed TV shows; just watched a Thursday night SNL politics special from a couple weeks ago
    The ” girl you wish you hadn’t got stuck talking to at a party ” character? I swear she could have been KooKoo – even did the “close your eyes, now open your eyes” bit. She should be so honored that she’s such a cliche type that SNL even recognizes the species.

    Latests tweets from JacDaniels….

    “I DID NOT choose2bpart of cover4USmagazine but they asked me a ques. at my last event&I answered it honestly.Quotes were pulled from Reunion”

    “The reunion was an ugly place4everyone involved.I’d like2put it behind me &move forward in a more positive direction w/more important topics”

    “f its a solo picture on a magazine,person is getting paid,3 on the cover,one is getting paid.I didn’t choose to do the cover or get paid.”

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I can beleive that the magazine scooped up stock pictures of them and pulled quotes from the show….my issue is, that they couldn’t seem to accept that the same thing also probably happened to Teresa.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Yep. We’re supposed to believe Jac (and I actually DO believe her in THIS instance), but we’re also supposed to NOT believe Teresa when she says the same thing.

    • RealhouseWifeva says:

      Hmm sounds like de ja vu to me, but Jac is in Teresa’s place defending herself…hahaha…wonder which one of the three got paid “cough famewhore Melissa cough”. I smell Melissa being the villain in a rhonj season soon

    • dickens says:

      This is what kills me about them. It’s okay for her to merely answer a question and for them to make up an article about it but not okay for Teresa to do the same.

      Besides, I’m not in any magazines but I’ve known for a long time that the writers take all kinds of liberties with the truth. Caroline & Co. seem to believe that Teresa is the author of those crazy stories, i.e. I’m terrified of being poor, having a baby boy, etc.

      • melthehound says:

        Where the hell did the 5th kid go? Did she stash him under a rock?

        • MamaZ says:

          Teresa explained over and over that the quotes were taken from the show. And they put the puppy on the damn cover. She didn’t rent a fake puppy as Jaq suggested.

          • kit9 says:

            She chose to sit for that photo, stunt puppy and all. And, of course using her children, which is grotesque. Never too young to exploit her kids for cold hard $$$.

              Aren’t every single one of them doing that just by being on the show? Why do they pretend that being on a trashy reality show is better than being on a trashy magazine cover?

          MTH, Teresa said (and I believe her) that they asked her if she wanted to have a boy and she said yes.
          Voila, we have a whole article about it.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          If we are to believe the portrayal of Teresa provided by her cast mates as being this “evil, money-hungry Antichrist,” then Teresa and Joe probably SOLD their 5th child so Teresa could buy a new handbag (instead of paying off their creditors). It was probably another GIRL. So, it was no biggie to them.

    • ladyballs says:

      teresa admitted to telling the magazines that kathy and richie asked how many times tre had been to the mall.

      joe admitted he and tre told the magazine they were having a boy and that they were getting paid to be in the mags.

      • Exit4 says:

        No he said they got paid. I actually read the article and it was almost the same conversation I’ve has a million times. Do you want another baby? No? What I’d what a girl? Maybe! USDA, yada baby chat..

        FTR I am not having a baby. Just in case anyone believes it because it’s I’m the Internet and all.

        • Exit4 says:

          The covers are salacious and leading to get you to read. The articles are benign and say almost nothing. In touch is particularly bad because they write a story with a couple quotes tossed in. At least in us is slightly more journalistic and I mean slightly! In touch also has had multiple covers about Jen Anistons babies. Girlfriend has at least 23 of them if you go by them.

        • Exit4 says:

          USDA? Lol! It should say yada! I’m giving up auto correct!

  30. Hi all!!! Hope everyone is having a great day…..I’m sad to hear that the NJ reunion got such high ratings because lord knows this plays into the hands of the Bravo producers and they’re just going to continue to feed us this vitriolic mess and that certainly means Attila the Hun I mean Aviva the Diva I mean Aviva Drescher will probably be back for yet another season….gag me with a spoon…

  31. VV says:

    If these are the magazine covers the other ones are complaining, then it’s clear to me the other ones are just plain jealous. None of those Covers make Teresa look good in her personal life.

  32. Zoey says:

    As far as the jerk who sent the email to the Wisconsin news anchor, in my opinion I think it’s more gender bias, even if the jerk who sent it doesn’t even realize it!
    How many overweight MALE newscasters has he sent the same thoughts to? Probably none. They are much easier to find on TV than women! And she’s had 3 kids, she has more of an excuse to be heavy than most men.
    And how many bald, wrinkly women do you see on TV? Hmm…not too many, if any. Men? Everywhere! It’s truly a mans world.

    If I were going to judge her at all, and this is totally my thoughts from afar based on my preferences, and not knowing her situation personally, I would say aw, I wish she stayed home with her 3 kids rather than work full time.

  33. Sus says:

    OT – So I read this whacked out blog – http://prebabyblog.com/ – it’s about this batshit crazy couple who had a baby a few months ago. The mom kept herself inside while pregnant so she wouldn’t pick up any germs or stress. Stress during pregnancy can cause your kid to be gay doncha know.

    Anyway, they posted this pic on Instragram – http://instagram.com/p/QPxy6WoYNp/

    What is behind the baby’s ear?

  34. rabblerouser2010R says:

    re. Flipping out. I am still so confused about the Andrew situation. He might have explained why he lies (if he is telling the truth) but I didn’t feel like we were any closer to the truth about who he really is. Does he have rich parents? Where does he live? What does his boyfriend/partner do?

    I also think it was a mistake for Jeff to take him back after he resigned. Now that it seems like Andrew has a some form of mental illness, it could make it very difficult for Jeff to terminate him later.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree with you RR. Andrew seems unstable. Stable and kooky, that’s fine. Stable and ‘out there’, ok. Stable and wacky, could be fun. But unstable?? I don’t care how funny Jeff thinks he is, he is off, and not in a good way.

      In New Orleans, we have a lot of ‘characters’ we call them. Mostly harmless, and kooky in all kinds of ways, but basically stable.
      I would not be comfortable with Andrew at this time in his life. Bu-bye! Maye Jeff really doesn’t want to pay that unemployment.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I also didn’t think that Gage was being paranoid when he wondered what could have happened at the sit down. I can tell you if I worked for JL, that’s a meeting I would have missed.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Oh man…I’m not part of the fb group but could you put me down for Juicy Joe. Call me crazy but I think he is a handsome guy especially since he lost weight.

      • Winston says:

        oh wait…I thought you meant Joe Guidice. I’m going to have to rescind my vote then. If Joe Gorga sleeps with Melissa there is just no way I could ever sleep with him after that.

          It IS Joe Guidice. Juicy vs Rich.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

            • disgrazia4 says:

                Who can see your fb account? Can you see the walls and fb pics, etc of everyone who has joined your group as the administrator? Just curious how it all works.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I think unless you are FB friends with someone in the group, they can’t see your personal FB page only what you post in the group. They will be able to read your real name though (provided that is the name you use on FB)

                • disgrazia4 says:

        • disgrazia4 says:

      • chismosa says:

        Juicy lost weight? When? On the reunion shots he looks the same

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      I asked NMD to post that a few days ago! lol

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I gave an analysis of why I’d pick Juicy over Richie on another blog.

      I’d go on ahead and sleep with ol’ Juicy (like I said, probably more than once because he would probably make me LAUGH. If a man can make me laugh, he’s already halfway there with me).

      I’d make him come to my house in the dark of the night and leave before sunrise, though. And if anybody EVER accused me of sleeping with Juicy, I would DENY, DENY, DENY and act HIGHLY OFFENDED that they could say such an AWFUL thing about me!!

      Then, if somehow, my name got out to the press (after I CALLED them), I’d do an article DENYING it while I TILTED MY HEAD and SMILED (like Teresa), holding a puppy (I’d do that because I actually DO love puppies) and dressed in some skanky outfit (like Melissa) so I could appeal to this divided nation and capture BOTH fans of Teresa AND Melissa!!

      BRAVO would probably offer me a role on RHONJ even thought I live in LA. They’d pay my moving expenses and stuff too.

      PHUCK law!!

      I think I’ve found my NEW career. I’m getting off this blog and picking up my phone right NOW to call US Magazine, In Touch, and BRAVO. I’ll catch you cats later!!

      Oh, and once I’m on television, I will forget EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU (because I will be too good for all of you then. I’ll be a SUPA STAH!!).

      I must also think long and hard about who I will befriend out of Teresa and Melissa. Melissa is a sociopath, but I’d love to hang out with her just to watch her operate. I am endlessly fascinated by people that have no conscience because of how my conscience bothers me a LOT (Catholic guilt).

      I probably wouldn’t be able to hold much of a conversation with Teresa, but she’s such a hustler…I could probably pick up tips on how to make some bucks from the time on the show just by CAREFULLY watching her.

      I guess I’ll go with Teresa.

    • I have been pretending I didn’t see the earlier request LOL. And I didn’t see this – if anyone asks.

  37. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Someone on twitter found out that Melissa still has an open arrest warrant against her in the state of FLA.

    • Winston says:

      Hmm, that must be the real reason she is selling her house. Once again trying to evade arrest but yet she blames Teresa.
      Hope someone contacts the Palm Beach PD and gives them Melissa’s contact info.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Isn’t she suppose to be performing at flea market there soon? I am sure a die hard Teresa fan has already tipped them off.

      • Winston.. i checked on that case months ago.. It’s for retail theft from years ago..It’s not the type of warrant where Fl would extradite her for..You need to go read the Court files for the history and background… Her Mom also owns a condo down here in Century Village . The SO does not have any desire to arrest her for this…LOL LOL

    • JustDee says:

      Would there still be an arrest warrant for a missed arraignment in 1997?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I don’t know. I am sure the statue of limitations on the charge would probably expired but I am not sure how long bench warrant (if there was on issued) is valid for.

        My sister used to date some loser, who was charged with road rage (or something like it). He missed his original court date so they issued a bench warrant for him. When the court date was rescheduled, the charges were dismissed because the complaining witness didn’t show up. When he walked out of the court feeling smug, he was arrested on the bench warrant in regards to the court case he missed- on the charge he just beat.

        I don’t know it that is standard practice. The arresting officer in the original case had it out for him because they used to go to high school together and my sisters ex was a complete dick to the guy.

    • Zoey says:

      I like it…makes her kinda gansta, lol.

  38. Exit4 says:

    Just for detox..

    Us weekly summary (and it goes without saying I’m on the phone so lets play decifer the misspellings as we read)—I’m paraphrasing the quotes too.

    Okay, it starts a out saying Teresa isn’t the type to bring a casserole to your house but she will bring over her new shoes and tell I how much they cost. Mel says she’s been that way since she met her. Teresa is the most controversial housewife, the gold digger comment, Kathy abandoning Rosie comment fromthe show, strippergate (these are the bad things Teresa has done).

    Melissa says she covered for her, kept in secrets but not anymore. Melissa will stop telling the truth about Teresa when Teresa stops lying about her. Melissa says she’s forcing her parents to take sides,Melissa host midweek dinners for them becaus Teresa stole Sunday. The parents are distant to Melissa and joe because she poisoned their brains. Thy stand by Teresa because she needs them. Teresa also turned the Gorgas against Kathy. Kathy came to the house to talk to them and Yeresa mother agreed with Kathy that she didn’t do anything wrong and her father walked away.

    Goes into Teresa saying jathyvand Rick almost got divorced, then how Jac states in part 2 that Teresa found joe with a woman non his desk. Joes always cheated. Here’s a sources quote: “Teresa and joe are very unhappy, joe feels trmendousbpressure to give her this big, over the top life”. (hmmm who could that be?) Teresa didn’t cry during nicks video and whenever Jac brought it up Teresa would change ye subject. She wasn’t there for Jac and only sent a text when the story came out.

    Teresa called Lauren lazy for getting a lap band and they didn’t show it… Melissa says that when Antonia got signed by a modeling agency tersa called her and said yeah, the ugly kids always get picked. Teresa faked making up with Jac and Melissa. Shd bash them off camera. Melissa is selling her house to get away from teresa because she doesn’t want her kids in school with someone who bashes their mother. There are sidebars of reunion shockers, which Melissa said drained her so much Her and joe drank 2 bottles of wine after. We already know the shockers. Also a montage of Teresa’s bad deeds. Whew&

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Thanks for the wrap up.
      I am puzzled about this part tho
      “Teresa also turned the Gorgas against Kathy. Kathy came to the house to talk to them and Yeresa mother agreed with Kathy that she didn’t do anything wrong and her father walked away”.
      When did Kathy to their house? Before the reunion? If so, Teresa’s mom WAS supportive of Kathy and Kathy then turns around and calls her a FN liar?

    • AZGirl says:

      I agree with Teresa about Lauren. She was lazy. She is only 24 and could have lost that weight easily with exercises and diet. I don’t buy the fact that she “tried everything”. The apple does not fall far from the tree in Lauren case.
      I had 2 babies in my thirties 13 months apart. When all said and done I was huge. About 175. I started working out at gyms that had childcare and it took probably one year but I got down to 110. It was hard and I was constantly tired. Stayed thin until my 50’s and menopause kicked in. Still working out everyday and staying at 140. Knees, back, butt all hurt and yes I am still contantly tired 🙂 he,he,he

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Oooh, thank you SOOO much, Exit! That was a great summary.

      How dare Teresa not bring a casserole??!!

      Was Melissa being the saintly, loyal sister-in-law and “covering” for Teresa when she would have her lovely girlfriend chats with Danielle about how horrible Teresa was?

      Was she “covering” for Teresa when she told Danielle that Teresa did not even show up at the hospital when Baby Joey was born? Speaking of which, during a conversation between Teresa and Melissa on the show, Teresa directly confronted Melissa about that LIE and said she did INDEED show up at the hospital when Baby Joey was born. At THAT point, Melissa responded by saying, “Well YOU did, but your husband, Joe, did NOT??!!”

      I notice how Melissa has a way of doing that — that being letting Teresa know that whatever Teresa does is simply just NOT good enough for Her Royal Highness, Melissa.

      For instance, according to Melissa, she deserves a special, engraved invitation to one of Teresa’s book signings. The fact that she did not GET one simply is just NOT good enough!! If a family member of mine wrote a book, I would show up at a book signing to congratulate him/her and express how proud I was personally to him/her. And, guess what? I would not even need for him/her to send me an invitation — probably because I’d have the good sense to understand that he/she might be too busy working a job he/she may have OUTSIDE of writing and selling books; possibly tending to a spouse and/or kids; promoting his/her book by making certain appearances; AND ALSO taking the time to sit in various establishments to sign his book as gratitude for those who spent their hard-earned money to buy it.

      Melissa claims it is ONLY Teresa that does this (act like nothing Melissa ever does is good enough for her), though. I’d bet money that BOTH those bitches have done that to each other in the past — not JUST Teresa.

      BRAVO clearly showed that Teresa invited Joey and Melissa to her housewarming (despite Melissa’s claims/lies — like in her VERY FIRST BRAVO blog — that Teresa kept Melissa and Joey away from any events taped by BRAVO). This was NOT good enough for Melissa, though. She wanted Teresa to get her a speaking part on camera — or at least have her FACE shown, Dammit!!! How DARE Teresa force the BRAVO editors to cut that scene of Joey and Melissa out of the episode??!! Despite being “dumb as a box o’rocks,” Teresa is STILL all-powerful, dont’cha know? She could have MADE BRAVO show Melissa’s beautiful mug during that episode!! How DARE she NOT (Never mind that Teresa’s making such demands on her employer could have possibly gotten Teresa’s ass fired. So what?!)??!!!

      Teresa sends out a tweet wishing Antonia a “Happy Birthday.” Melissa tweets that Antonia would prefer a phone call and a personal visit with her cousins. When it is revealed that Teresa not only tweeted her birthday wish to Antonia, but also DID call (just like she DID show up at the hospital), Melissa all of a sudden says she missed the phone call because the loud music from her party prevented her from hearing the phone. And never mind a tweet from Melissa (for everybody to see) apologizing for her error and thanking Teresa for the birthday tweet AND the requested phone call after the fact.

      Also, one of Teresa’s children had a birthday after Antonia’s. Teresa’s child not only did not even receive a PHONE CALL from Joey or Melissa, the child did not even get a “Happy Birthday, You Little Bitch!!” tweet from Joey OR Melissa. I don’t remember Teresa taking to a public forum to complain about that, though.

      I don’t have children, but if I did, I’m PRETTY SURE that one of them would NEVER have the power to FORCE me to choose between him/her and another child of mind (I’m sure Melissa’s mind could not even possibly comprehend that maybe Joey’s parents simply don’t LIKE her ass for their own reasons!! Maybe they love their son and their grandkids and TOLERATE a woman that has hurt their daughter terribly. Maybe, to the Gorga parents, blood IS thicker than water, and they do not appreciate the way Melissa crawled across broken glass to find a way to be hired by Teresa’s employer and, from the VERY beginning, TALK and WRITE sh*t about their daughter for the ENTIRE NATION to see. Just a thought. *Shrug*).

      And HOW DARE Teresa “steal” Sunday? I thought I was going crazy when I went to bed Saturday night, and I woke up to MONDAY morning instead of SUNDAY!! Now that I know that this EVIL BITCH Teresa STOLE Sunday, I’m going to write BRAVO and my Congressman. I want my damned Sunday BACK!! I used to get a lotta stuff done on that day, namely watching Melissa’s lovely ass on my t.v. screen on those nights!! I guess I imagined the Reunion I JUST watched this past SUNDAY because Sunday no longer even exists.

      Teresa took it.

      I’m sure Teresa’s mother agreed with Kathy and took Kathy’s side against her OWN daughters the EXACT SAME WAY she took Kathy’s side at the Season 3 Posche Fashion Show (You know — the time on the show,when, in broken English, Teresa’s mother screamed at Kathy, “Dis is you COUSIN!! You should be ashamed of youself” for basically trying to call my daughter a negligent Mother on national television). I TOTALLY believe Melissa (NOT)!!

      I also TOTALLY believe that Teresa told Melissa that the UGLY kids always get picked by modeling agencies because I SAW Teresa telling GIA, during Season 1, that she was going to take her to a modeling agency in New York because she was just “SO UGLY”!! You guys don’t remember that episode? I do. Teresa sat Gia down and said, “Gia, Mommy loves you, but you are UGLY. Mommy wants some more money. So, we’re going to make use of your unfortunate looks and drive your UGLY ASS on over to a modeling agency in New York. EVERYONE must contribute in the Giudice household. You GOT that, UGLY? Good. Learn it. Live it. Love it. Did Mommy ever tell you that one of her favorite movies when she was younger was ‘Heathers’? Well, it was. That’s where I STOLE that line…just like I plan to STEAL Sunday from everybody one day soon!! MUUUUUUUUAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAA!!!” (Teresa was rubbing her hands together in an evil way as she cackled loudly about her upcoming dastardly plan).

      I could go on, but I won’t because I want to watch an episode of “Paranormal Witness” that comes on at 5 (that’s 2 minutes from now).

      AGAIN, thanks so much for the summary of the article, Exit!! 😉

          By the way, I realized AFTER I hit “Post Comment” that I got the move with the line, “LEARN it. LIVE it. LOVE it.” wrong. What WAS the name of that movie? I think it starred Rose McGowan and Judy Greer.

          …..ANYHOO….These people and some of their RUMORS are all just SO ridiculous. It’s hard not to write about them in a ridiculous way sometimes, you know?

          Speaking of RUMORS and WRITING MY CONGRESSMAN (for Teresa’s theft of Sunday), if the BRAVO producers decide to keep the SAME cast and decide to go with this same NAUSEATING storyline, I want them to change RHONJ’s theme song to the following — because it describes the cast as it stands presently and their behavior over the past 2 seasons, particularly at that FREAK SHOW of a Reunion this past STOLEN Sunday — PERFECTLY:

              My husband now thinks I am insane because I am laughing so hard, I can’t stop. Thanks for making my day but not for the permanent laugh lines you caused! I will go to bed tonight lighter in spirit, it doesn’t get better than that.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                I apologize for the laugh lines.

              My chest hurts, and I started coughing again. If I find out I’m dying, I’m taking my act on the road before my lights go out.

              I think I’d make a killing (I’d leave it in a Trust for my brother with Aspberger’s so he would ALWAYS, ALWAYS be taken care of and nobody could take advantage of him and touch his money — because they’d have to go through 2 Trustees before they would even cut a check. “QUEENIE” [his nickname for me] will ALWAYS have his back — even from beyond the grave!).

            You’re welcome, Bird!!

      • Winston says:

        Teresa Took It…..LMBO….Detox you are hilarious! Glad to see I am not the only one who thought Melissa’s grievances with Teresa were comical.
        It’s no wonder Teresa didn’t want Melissa on the show…would you want your ex-dancer, retail thieving SIL to be associated with your family? Something tells me there is a lot more to Melissa’s past that has yet to be uncovered. No doubt Teresa will be blamed for exposing it all but I always say..why is Teresa being blamed for Melissa’s past? It’s Melissa’s actions that have led to her past so why is Teresa to blame?

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Teresa is to blame because “She is EVIL, and she must be DESTROYED!!”, Winston.

          Girl, you didn’t KNOW??!!!

          That’s Melissa, Kathy, Jac and Caroline’s story, and they’re STICKING to it, Dammit!!

          Never mind that much of the sh*t they say makes not one damned bit of sense and in NO way supports the theory that Teresa is the Antichrist….

          ….Instead, in reality, JUST LIKE the rest of THEM, Teresa is simply a DEEPLY FLAWED woman who is doing her best to just survive and make it in the Reality World she unwittingly (I mean, she ain’t the BRIGHTEST and can be impulsive!) got herself into.

          This is very UNLIKE MELISSA (who carefully schemed and calculated; crawled across broken glass; allegedly made a videotape with a promise to “take” her Sister-In-Law down — Oh yeah, that’s ANOTHER way ST. Melissa was “covering” for Teresa. I just remembered THAT one; and did EVERYTHING within her power, by HOOK[er] or CROOK[arrest warrant], to get herself on that damned show, BY GOD!!!! I’m glad it’s all been worth it to her, and she can, like she said, have “NO problems sleeping at night.”

  39. AZGirl says:

    FameWhorgas website has a post about the real story of Mel and Joey meeting in Cancun. Mel has given so many different versions but the cool news is supposedly she tried to hit on Penny’s husband’s brother first and that Joey was her third pick. Another really good point is why if Mel has her degree in elementary education would she need over the top breast implants? Has Mel ever dressed appropriately? Stripper shoes, stripper shorts, dresses that are up to her “momma goods”.
    They also have a post regarding Mel and Joey are $1.5 mil in debt. Kim D is threatening to spill all on twitter. I wish she would but may have to wait until after the last reunion is aired.

    There are people out there with brains that don’t think Teresa set up stripper gate…I know there will always be some that still do and those are true Teresa haters…just as some are true Caroline Jac and Melissa haters and will come down on them like vultures to protect Teresa . I think it’s more a case of once Teresa knew what Kim was doing she let it continue cause she really does hate Melissa and her attempt to make peace with her in California was all pretend. Please don’t anybody bite my head off.. I promise to nevahhhh Comment on this again…I’m so over it

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      LOL- I wonder after the reunion is over how long the NJ will drag it out in mags and on twitter. I think if they keep it up, no matter what ‘team’ some is on but s5 everyone will be over it.

      • Nancy says:

        RR,
        I have a question re: Nick (Jacq’s son) In the short tape we saw him counting down from
        3 to 1. He was born having autism so how could he have done that? I hope I’m making sense.

        • Nancy says:

          Never mind I figured it out and my question was offensive so sorry about that.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Hi Nancy. I don’t think you were being offensive, I think there is so much confusion about the disorder that some times it’s hard for people to understand.
            Many kids with autism develop typically in the first couple of years of life.It could be that film of Nic was before he regressed. It could also be a new skill he has learned.

            I know tons of kids with autism who can have a full on conversation, show affection be engaging with family and peers; as well as having normal (and sometimes gifted) cognition .

            • Nancy says:

              Thanks RR. I think people (ie me) assume that being autistic means your IQ is lower
              when that is not true all of the time. My cousins son is autistic but very smart so I don’t know why that didn’t click me after I saw Nick on that tape.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                You’re welcome Nancy. xo

                • Birdwoman says:

                  My Nephew has Aspergers Syndrome. He seemed very ‘normal’ until he reached preschool age around three. He is extremely bright but his challenges lie with social interactions. 🙂

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    I think for some kids with autism or aspies, sometimes things like pragmatic language is kind of like reading comments on line, where in written text it’s sometimes hard to sense the meaning behind them. e,g, I could write I won the mega millions and someone could reply “No way”, those words could me awe or disbelieve. I know at my daughters therapy clinic with some kids, they spend time going over facial expressions with them and tone to try as part of their speech therapy.

    • Exit4 says:

      It didn’t matter….see the problem is people have deluded themselves into believing what they are seeing is fly on the wall TV. Whoever brought up this asinine Melissa was a stripper! At a bar she did actually work! story was getting that story on camera come hell or high water. It’s not real life, where you could warn someone and NO ONE would be any the wiser b/c we (the viewers) already know what she was warning her about….And the fact said bar was owned by penny’s family, who owned the salon who sponsored the fashion show
      Pit on by Kim d? Come on…lots of people were in on this one all for their own agendas.

      These woman are not in charge of their own destiny. Even if Teresa was aware of what was going to happen at the salon and stayed home….it would have been worked in. Even if she stayed home from the fashion show, it would have been worked in. And if again, she warned Melissa, it would have been worked in.

      Strippergate was not “Teresas revenge” it was Melissas end of season 4 story arc and there was nothing that could have been done to stop it. Except bravo could have not aired it, if it didn’t go down well…but thanks to Jac Laurita that couldn’t happen. she spilled the beans before the night was over.

      What a way to head into season 5….. Melissa didn’t strip and everyone hates Teresa. What to do….what to do…

    • ladyballs says:

      i’ve said this same thing, cdn. i think tre instigated strippergate indirectly by talking to anyone and everyone (including kim d) about how melissa and kathy stabbed her in the back by joining the show before filming season 3 began. i think we know tre held out until the day filming started to sign a contract because she was so upset.

      it’s not a stretch to think kim d saw an opportunity and jumped on it–especially if she already disliked melissa, too.

      i think if tre liked melissa and had had a good relationship with her, kim d would never have put herself in the middle of this foolishness.

      • PJ says:

        Why would she do that? All strippergate did was extend Melissa’s fifteen minutes.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I think Kim D would inject herself into whatever foolishness would garner her screen time. Whoever the target is moot, it’s about the drama.

        • ladyballs says:

          would the rhonj be different if melissa, kathy, and tre liked each other and protected each other?

          • Nancy says:

            That would be a YES!

            • ladyballs says:

              ok.
              do you think the nj housewives are local celebrities?

              • Nancy says:

                Yes.

                • ladyballs says:

                  ok.
                  if a local business woman gets national exposure year after year (talking about kim d here), and doesn’t have to pay for it and that same local business woman has local celebrities shopping in her store, it doesn’t make sense for her to “expose” one of them and risk making them all angry.

                  i think kim d knew she wouldn’t make them all angry.

                  • Nancy says:

                    I’m not getting your point. Kim D went on the record that she was 100% behind the entire set-up.

                    • Nancy says:

                      She wants to get on the show so I’m sure that was the reasoning behind it.

                    • ladyballs says:

                      do you think kim d would go on record claiming total responsibility if the nj housewives would all turn their backs on her and her store?

                      what would be her motive to do all of this?

                    • Nancy says:

                      To get on the show.

                    • ladyballs says:

                      4 seasons in the can and she wasn’t on except for the fashion show.

                      i’ll eat my hat if she’s signed to be a full-time housewife for the 5th season….it ain’t gonna happen.

                      sooooooooooo, all she has to do is create drama for her fashion show, which bravo likes. perhaps she’ll still have the support of at least one of the local celebrities because kim d thinks tre won’t mind if the drama she creates hurts melissa.

                      afterall, tre was the only one who was invited to have hair, makeup, and a limo ride with her….

              • Exit4 says:

                They are not. People in Franklin lakes et al do not like them. I know this because I have been there. It’s a really nice place BTW.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I think it would be different in the sense that it wouldn’t be as dark, since real families tearing at each other is harder to take than ‘placed friends’ on a show.

            But the premise of every HW show is the same…the ring leader/top dog and their lackeys, villains and victims.

        • PJ says:

          Exactly it’s about the drama and the Bravo team put the mic on Angelo and didn’t take it off. Jac looked like she knew so who set who up? I could care less about Kim D.

      • Zoey says:

        Very good points, ladyballs. I have been skipping over most pro Teresa posts lately, since I am not pro Teresa, at all, which makes me miss out on a lot of the blog lately.
        People are of course entitled to post whatever they like and feel, and we can choose to read it or not. That’s cool.
        I just wish more people who are not pro Teresa would come back and post and not have to keep apologizing for their posts. Yep, they do.
        There’s only a handful of us still posting…

        • ladyballs says:

          i agree.

        • The Tin Man says:

          It does seem like the goal is to get rid of us. You have to have thick skin (or tin) to suffer the slings and arrows that come your way if you post unfavorable things about Teresa. There are people who deny this happens, but others have said the same, as have I, as did Lynn. Once I referred to MTH as Teresa’s flying monkey because that’s what he used to call himself sometimes as a joke. But when I said it, I got blasted as a racist because monkeys are, you know, black. Of course I tried to defend myself but the charge was never refuted or retracted, and I never got an apology for it either. It’s hateful and unfair, but it’s the norm here. I’ve been insulted numerous times, but that was the worst. And still people deny that the hate coming from the Teresa lovers puts people off commenting. Isn’t that the old trick of the devil, to make people believe he doesn’t exist? For me, it’s water off a duck’s back, but others won’t come back, and I don’t blame them. I have lots of senior moments, and I get some stuff wrong, but while I might not remember what I had for breakfast yesterday, I never forget an insult or an injustice, ever. It is what it is.

          • Nancy says:

            I’m sorry to hear that.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            Do you honestly think there is an agenda? Or an active conspiracy to run people off the board? I am not seeing it.

            I can’t comment on the flying monkey thing, because I honestly don’t remember it.
            But I do think people can read things in people’s post that may or may not be there given their own personal head space at the time. I remember I used to post on a site about Kate Gosselin that was VERY heated (real insults exchanged) and a year or so later, I went back and re-read some of the threads and my replies and saw some interactions a bit differently.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              * just to be clear, I am not trying to suggest that you imagined the flying monkey thing. I am trying to say that down the line the same person might not see what they perceived as racism in the comment.

          • ladyballs says:

            thank you for saying that, tin man.

            i’m not the sheepish-type or people-pleasing. i am an everyday poster in a chatroom that is brutal and hilarious. i get the distinct feeling i’m supposed to walk on eggshells here, but–as i just said– that’s not my style.

            these are tv shows that have nothing to do with our own lives, but the comments here become personal quickly.

            i really like these shows and i enjoy shooting the sh*t about them, but i don’t have to. i’m hanging in there giving it my best try.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Is there an example where you feel that you have been attacked as a person?

              • Zoey says:

                I have to speak up for many who have left, and say there have been many harsh comments that caused people to state they are not coming back. And I really miss those folks.

                We that are on one train of thought about this silly show obviously notice it much more than those that are not. I don’t blame you guys if you don’t notice it as much, and I’m not about to go back and look for every name or instance, but I would ask that you accept and believe what we’re saying or feeling.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I’ve told her the same thing even through (and I could be completely wrong) she doesn’t strike me as someone who needs reassurance. I see her as someone who says what she means and mean what she says which is why I am not seeing how when others do so, it would be the sort of thing that would phases her.

                • PJ says:

                  I’m not sure where to put this comment in this thread but I was thinking as I read these comments that not too long ago if you made a pro Teresa comment you were made to feel unwelcome (my opinion–but I know others felt the same). I have felt a double standard at times from some who comment here, although I’m not referring to anyone specifically when I say that.

            • lizzle says:

              Ladyballs… I like your comments because you’ve got those lady balls and say what you want and say it well. I like Tamara Barney and I don’t think there is one other person here who likes her, so I can relate.

              • ladyballs says:

                i like her, too.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Same here…well, almost. Before the bullying of Alexis, I mentioned more than once that I liked Tamra because she made me laugh, and I liked that she said whatever the hell was on her mind.

                I had people make nasty comments to me about that and ask me if I was crazy. A couple of people told me that, if I liked Tamra, then that must be because I was just as MEAN as her and probably had the same personality and attitude as her. *Shrug*

                I did not care, though, because I knew it was not true. There is no way, I would have won every single class popularity contest the way I did each and every year since the 6th grade if I were a “mean” person. There is also no way I would have been the first person in my high school’s history to be the FEMALE winner of every single personality category for the Seniors of the Class of 1988.

                So, that right there proves that I am NOT mean like Tamra.

                It also proves that I like to BRAG a lot. *Shrug*

                Oh yeah, I am one of the few people that likes Heather from RHOOC. I got talked about negatively for THAT one too. I don’t care, though. I STILL like her, Dammit!! I mean, we ALL have our baggage. So what if she has an aversion to people who bite off a piece of her bow and COMPLETELY overreacts.

                She’s HUMAN.

                And….so what?!

                • lizzle says:

                  I hope Alexis is gone because I really don’t want to watch Vicky and Alexis against Tamara and Gretchen. I am happy that Gretchen and Tamara are friends because those two have fun together… like a newly formed Ramonja. I like Heather as well, and think it’s cool that Tam, Gretch and Heather are friends outside the show. Those three gel together. I am thinking that Vicky might be the odd man out next season, not sure, but a guess. Hopefully, they will bring on an interesting new housewife who likes to have fun.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Ladyballs, I like your comments simply because I respect ANY woman that has the creativity and the courage to call herself “LADYBALLS”!!

              I mean….that takes….BALLS! And I like BALLS, whether they be on a MAN or a WOMAN.

              So, keep on commenting, and I will keep on reading (whether I agree or disagree).

              That’s what I don’t get guys. You all give as good as you get, and I haven’t seen any personal attacks or anyone even implying you need to leave, tone anything down or walk on eggshells. I wasn’t around during the flying monkey debate as I avoided Mondays for awhile. People are passionate about NJ housewives for some reason, but I don’t see anyone trying to run anyone off. You have your opinions. Others have theirs. You’re in the minority here about NJ, but you’re not the only ones who don’t like Teresa Guidice. All you Teresa Guidice haters come out of lurkdom! I know you’re out there! labyballs, zoey, the tinman, and a few others need you! Present a polite united front against all Tre Huggers! Just trying to lighten things up around here. I’m all for civil debate, the emphasis on civil. Everyone adds to the debate. That’s what makes the discussions so interesting.

              • PJ says:

                BB I agree with you no one has tried to run anyone off and everyone here does give as good as they git. People are passionate about NJ and see things very differently almost like we aren’t all watching the same show. Some people claim they don’t engage but they do just maybe less directly then others. When my husband puts together a team for a project he says if you all have the same opinions I don’t need all of you because different opinions make you think and get you outside of your own head.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I never called you a RACIST, Tin Man. And I will SWEAR on my NORMAL CHILD that I did not (Never mind that I don’t have any kids. Alright, I’ll swear on my Mama & Daddy, then).

            What I SAID was that, as a Black person, just because I sometimes defended Teresa, I was not about to be branded “anybody’s monkey.”

            I did not think you were in any way, shape or form being racist AT ALL.

            I just don’t like the tag “flying monkeys” being used to describe Teresa lovers.

            I also don’t like the way people who defended Teresa were often basically called brainless, mindless idiots who were simply, like the Jonestown victims, drinking Teresa’s Kool-Aid.

            I was HIGHLY OFFENDED by that because I like CRYSTAL LITE, Dammit!! I would never even want to associate myself with a packet of Kool-Aid. I mean….how LOWBROW.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I know, Chismosa. It’s like both sides feel the SAME way. They just support and/or defend different people. I don’t know if that makes any sense.

              • PJ says:

                I feel the same that’s what I meant when I said that not too long ago if you made any kind of a pro Teresa you were made to feel unwelcome. Unwelcome may not have been exactly the right word. People who don’t like Teresa make all kinds of mean comments but if you like Teresa and disagree with them you are chasing them off, interesting.

                • chismosa says:

                  just- my personal opinion- as a Tre-Hater– i don’t ever feel ‘chased’ off but there is a sense of just being in such a minority. I don’t feel chased, i just get personally uncomfortable at times from some comments from the Tre-Posse and will duck out as needed.
                  We’re all good– this terrible show is ending soon and from what i saw on Tre’s interview the other day on tv it doesn’t look very secure if she herself is back to NJ, let alone all the other women.

                  • RealHousewifeVA says:

                    With the reunion ratings what they were, rest assured most of them will be asked back. Teresa actually said to Wendy “Do you really think Bravo is going to let me go?”

                  • PJ says:

                    I do understand believe me. That’s the way I used to feel because of not hating Teresa. But I didn’t complain that I was being chased off or basically put myself in a position where people would beg me to stay. You don’t do that either because you have the right attitude and don’t take things too personally. I’m sure there are many things we completely agree on.

                    • disgrazia4 says:

                      Exactly PJ. I have not liked the the 4 new family members since their first episode and, indeed, my name is dedicated to their wolfish and disgraceful arrival on the show. Everyone then, it seemed, hated Teresa and saw nothing sinister about her family from hell. I posted anyway and those that disagreed with me got some healthy arguing. I didn’t gripe. I made a case, an argument for my views. That is what we are about here I thought. That is what Lynn wanted, a place where everyone can post their views and opinions without fear of censorship, without fear of being verbally abused. And I have not seen any verbal abuse here. If you want that there are plenty of other places to see the difference between that and here. Simply put, the tide has turned here somewhat on the question of Teresa. To that I say, I knew y’all would come around eventually! LOL 😉

                    • PJ says:

                      Disgrazia Love your name BTW.

          • lizzle says:

            Mel called himself Teresa’s Flying Monkey, because a former poster at Lynn’s blog made an emotional comment about Teresa supporters on the blog being Flying Monkeys (as opposed to long time posters… and in fact those peeps were regular posters). And she followed it with some other emotional comments to those who like Teresa. Cusi and MTH were there that day… not sure if others remember. If I find the comment, I will link to it. That poster (who was a regular that I liked) has either changed her name… or disappeared after that comment because it was a very emotional rant that directly attacked other posters (not just their views). I don’t know if she was drinking or if NJ really upset her that much, but I don’t hold it against her and would welcome her back.

            Anyways… that’s where MTH’s name came from… but as time goes on… the incident fades and peeps that weren’t there might not have understand why he would call himself that… which might be a reason he doesn’t call himself that anymore. Just a guess.

            The original Flying Monkey term, of course, is the Wizard of Oz and the wicked witch’s flying monkeys. I have also heard people who were not fans of LynnNChicago call her posters flying monkeys, because they would comment at other blogs when there were some old blog wars going on.

            I feel like I could write a dissertation on this, but I will stop. I don’t think racism ever played a part in the Flying Monkey thing… although, the history of Flying Monkeys is a sordid one.

            Please don’t shoot the messenger and feel free to correct any inconsistencies in my thesis! 🙂

            • BB says:

              Your thesis is correct. The Flying Monkey termcame from Lynn Hudson detractors who called any follower of Lynn her Flying Monkeys. The term took on a life of it’s own.

            • chismosa says:

              yes you are all correct– i feel like the term Flying Monkeys has always come to mean the supporters, or almost- servants (for lack of better word)- for their leader?? Like, the monkeys did the witch’s work for her. I feel like i’ve heard it many times in other situations.
              I never heard it in a racist way but i know how that can be a sensitive issue at times.

              • melthehound says:

                Servants? Really?

                • chismosa says:

                  i couldn’t think of another word– the monkeys in the movie did do all the work for the witch, no? She would send them to do her bidding– or am i remembering this movie incorrectly? I only focus on the guy who hung himself in the background in that one scene most of the time.

                  • melthehound says:

                    It’s best just to ignore me Chismosa.

                    • chismosa says:

                      Well if your comment wasn’t to my post, i wouldn’t have said anything. I honestly didn’t feel i was insulting anyone by using the term ‘servants’ and i’m not going into some sort of Civil Rights issue here with that, because that is not my intent at all with that. My mind is not ‘in the gutter’ as my friends say. It was meant as in the W.O.O. movie, army to the witch. Maybe soldiers/ army was a better word to say, i couldn’t think of it.

              Tin Man is calling ME the idiot.

              But it’s a frame job because I never called her a RACIST in the first place (See my comment above).

              This is a SETUP!!!! I feel like Teresa right about now….or is it Melissa? Who got set up again?

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Girl, Welcome to the “Isle of Debris” Casino!!! When one of my cousins used to live in Lake Charles, he used to work at one of the riverboat casinos in Lake Charles called “The Isle of Capri.”

                  He always called it “The Isle of DEBRIS,” though. He no longer works there because he decided to move up in the world and move to Dallas, where he found a much better job.

                  I’m a little pissed because he used to give me his coupons for the “Isle of Debris” buffet, which is AWESOME. Now, I actually have to pay full price if I want to go there.

                  • JustDee says:

                    Ha HA! EXCELLENT name! I’ve been there! I used to stay with a friend in Westlake when I’d go back to La. “The Isle” was just a few blocks away. (Never had the buffet though).

                  • Zoey says:

                    Omg, Isle of Debris, that’s one of the funniest things I’ve heard in a while!!!

            • The Tin Man says:

              You know, the funny thing is that the only reason I first started posting as “I Don’t Have a Heart” was to draw fire off Lynn. She was getting crucified by the Teresa lovers for not saying enough good things about Teresa and it was clearly causing her a lot of pain and hurting her feelings. That touched me so that I wanted to help her, so I jumped in with guns a blazing posting every rotten thing about Teresa that I could think of, hoping that people would come after me and leave her alone. She doesn’t need me to defend her anymore, so maybe it’s time for the Tin Man to retire. I don’t need this either, and it’s really not fun anymore, no matter how much I try to put the “f” “u” back in fun. My kind of humor obviously pisses a lot of people off, and I’ve grown weary of the battle, time to rust unburnished in the sun. And I’m sick to death of these god awful shows anyway. I may change my mind tomorrow, but that’s how I’m feeling right now. Or how I would feel, if I, you know, had a heart.

              • ladyballs says:

                i can identify with what you’re saying and i’ve only been commenting for a couple weeks.

              • djprincessc says:

                Tin Man you don’t like Teresa and thats fine. I happen to love her. I don’t get why people take it so seriously having different opinions on something so childish. I also understand you saying that posting isn’t fun anymore, bc I haven’t been a poster that long and have experienced now a few times people being way too uptight and feeling the need to argue and correct every little thing. Sometimes posters on here go on and on like they have to seem smarter and more intelligent. I don’t know anyone personally on here so it baffles my mind that people do this. IMO if you and I (for example) were to get into a disagreement who cares??!?! Are we ever going to see eahother? I doubt it! So its not that serious! I’ve said it over and over before when things get too dramatic on here…99% of the posters on here are nice and gracious and funny, but then there is that 1% who sucks the life out of the room over stupid shit and ruins the fun. Who knows maybe they need to get laid more?? lol.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Tin Man – I have no idea what you’re talking about because I just got home, but I love your heartless ass and just about everything it writes. So, I’d better see you tomorrow…or whenever you get in the mood again. Try not to take too long. 🙂

              • lizzle says:

                Tin Man, I remember when “I don’t have a heart” entered the scene… and I agree… Lynn was getting attacked for her sources and her opinions about Teresa… in fact, I would cringe at some of the comments… and I like Teresa. I know she appreciated your perspective! She took some heat for her views, but that is what made her a legend in my mind. She handled herself much better than I could if I were in her position. Lynn put up with so much drama, not just with the Teresa perspective, but within the Real Housewives community and although it did get to her sometimes… i felt like she handled it like one badass, classy lady! I bet she is still shaking her fist at Teresa in that TV in the sky… well, I actually take that back.. she is probably too at peace to care about this nonsense called RHONJ.

                I have to go to bed now, but I hope to see all you guys/ gals tomorrow. IRL…I am living in a new city and you guys are helping me cope. Just like the sun rises and sets… this blog is a constant for me. And BTW… I enjoy everyone’s comments!

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Tin Man, when I think of you…I don’t even think about any of the housewife shows, I think of the story you shared about how lovemamaearth’s tale of the two wolfs influenced your diner date with your DH’s colleague that you couldn’t stand.

                I think part of the ‘cultural’ issue on this board, is when people start rounding people up as Teresa lovers or haters.

          • melthehound says:

                    It’s something Lil John says in song, but i cannot remember the song.

                    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                      It’s a longtime saying in the African-American community too: “Don’t START none!! Won’t BE none!!” According to the Urban Dictionary, this phrase means the following: “A warning to others stating that if an altercation is to be avoided, they they should cease acting in a provocative manner.”

                      White people say it too. So, it is NOT a racist term, and a person who uses it is NOT a racist, whether they be, in the words of Prince (from the song, “Uptown”), “White, Black, Puerto Rican, everybody JUST a FREAKIN’!!”

                      I’m a Black person that says it, and I am NOT a RACIST.

                      MTH just said it. He is a White man. And he is NOT a RACIST (He IS a “flying monkey, though”. I am just KIDDING, PEOPLE!!!!!!! Come on, now. Let’s all RELAX).

                      BOTH sides in the RHONJ debate are passionate. I’m sure there are good and bad people in BOTH groups. One is NOT “better” than the other. He/She/They simply has/have a DIFFERENT opinion which they may or may not express passionately.

                • melthehound says:

                  Zoey I grow VERY tired of the posters who come in here to scold the Teresa fans for starting stuff when nothing is further from the truth. I’ve seen it all summer long and for what it’s worth, it happened when Lynn was here too (In case anyone feels the need to play that card). For the most part, I’ve bit my tongue in this debate, especially in the last few weeks. No one can say anything to a ‘Teresa Hater’ without the malarkey notion that they are somehow trying to run them off. It’s pure BS.

                  • Zoey says:

                    But Mel, what you don’t hear is that others feel and see just the opposite. Lynn often stepped in actually and tried to put a stop to it when it got too out of hand. I totally respect that you feel that way, but it’s bothersome for you to tell Tin Man that what she feels is totally wrong and you said was ‘just the opposite’ of what she expressed.
                    Sorry, but that’s just wrong of you. You don’t have a right to tell her how to feel.

                    Bottom line – we know that everyone is welcome here, and welcome to express themselves. If people keep saying over and over that they feel uncomfortable expressing themselves for whatever reason, just accept that, move on and take it in!
                    There is no debate.

Does anyone remember the ” oh yea., well your mama……comedy routines? That’s what it felt like. But at no time did I feel I was being run off this blog..you guys are funny and informative.

                  OK this is not meant to offend anyone, but this is a discussion blog where people give their opinions. So the way I see this discussion going right now is: basically if you don’t like Teresa you can comment to people who do but if you do like Teresa then don’t reply to the comments of people who don’t because you are chasing them off the blog. This goes both ways.

          I definately not pro Teresa I simply can’t stand to think about her without getting sick to my stomach, I”m one that believes she had everything to so with all the crap that happened. I think she was pissed that it didnt turn out the way she wanted it tio go in front of everyone and it went over like a lead balloon so she takes her in the bathroon feel my heart its beatine 500 I think that her body language told me more than the recording the creepy guy made forgeting his mic was on.

      i am a ‘true Teresa hater’ but I don’t think she set up stripper gate. It kind of goes along somewhat with a part of why i hate her so……

      • Sus says:

        I don’t think Theresa set up StripperGate. If she had, it would have been on the 1st show that Melissa was on. Theresa may have mentioned to Bravo producers and other people that Melissa was a stripper but she did not invite BaldHead Guy to that fashion show.

        • chismosa says:

          yes, and is it even confirmed if Mel was REALLY a stripper or not? I don’t understand how all the fellow strippers/ dancers/ waiters-waitresses/ managers/ customers who worked at this place have not come up out of the woodwork from years ago to say she was in the past 2 years she’s been on tv? That is what i don’t get. I don’t think the Gorgas have that much power to shut everyone down who can divulge this info, like say, the Kardashians do– (about Khloe’s true father, release of sex tapes, etc….)

          Same as i feel about Jacqueline– in ALL the years she’s been on this show– how come NO ONE from Vegas has come up with stories of her ‘dancing’ there and how she really met Chris? I don’t get it??? These are not Kennedys– how are they hiding all this info if it is TRUE??

          • Sus says:

            Yes! Yes! Yes!!!!!!!
            In this day and age, NOTHING is secret for people in the public. Melissa and Jac’s favorite customers would be coming out talking about how great they were on the pole. People they worked with would be talking to TMZ and trash magazines.
            The days of Kennedy Secrecy is over. We don’t have to wait for a letter to arrive to communicate. We don’t have to pay large long-distance charges to talk on the phone. Communication is seamless and immediate now.

    • Winston says:

      Well the proof will be in the pudding when no one watches the show anymore because if it revolves around Tamra, Gretchen and Heather, there is no way I would watch for a minute. I could barely tolerate it as it was but no way will I watch now.

    I also read that in cancun, Melissa and Joey had a “moment” in the pool (aka doing it) and Pete Giudice has pictures! This is probably not true, but imagine if it was? And he puts them out there. That would make Pete a jerk and really, it’s not a big deal-she wouldn’t be the only girl to do that on vacation. AND she married the guy…but it surely wouldn’t fit her image!

    • lori says:

      I’m sure Joey would love pictures of him spreading his poison in a pool. I pray to god if the pictures exist I never have to see em..yuck!!!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Also, what would be the big deal? Melissa had sex with Joey before they got married and had 3 kids….

      AND……?

  43. WindyCityWondering says:

    Suspending reality for a moment – do youse think that Melissa was the only women desperately trying to get on RHNJ? Her hook was to take Teresa down and she got on the show. Someone elses hook might be to take Melissa down. IMO, bartender/dancer/stripper is just an angle and the tip of the take Melissa down iceberg.

    • PJ says:

      That would be so funny!

    • Winston says:

      I think a good storyline would be a policeman showing up to arrest Melissa for her retail theft in FL warrant and handcuffing her and then starting to strip cuz it turns out he is just a stripper dressed as a policeman and then at the end, he looks at her and asks….don’t you remember me? I worked with you at Lookers 😀 That would give me a giggle!

        Well why just HINT? I could go around online, fish around some good info and come on some website anonymously claiming to know sordid secrets. If one truly knows good true insider info, get some $$$$ for it and go to the magazines or big big gossip sites that would pay for that. Ridiculous.

    • Winston says:

      Oh and I do agree WCW (as evidenced by Strippergate) that not only was Melissa brought on the show for Tre’s take down but Bravo saw a future opportunity to return the favor to Melissa. Melissa seems to be an Alaskan sized iceberg for sure.

    • savannah111 says:

      LOL Youse are to funny, I still not convinced that Melissa and Kathy joined with any specific agenda, I think that Bravo had maybe heard enough of drama that was going on that they checked them out, I know they were not really speaking during that time and Both Teresa and Melissa said they were better by the show since they had to spend time togather, that lasted all of maybe a week, Teresa didnt wont then on the show and I think thats why she’s been involved with all the BS like the gold digger comment and she would leave him for a richer man all that BS in an attempt to get her to quit the show.

    (because I am inspired by Detox’s movie references) I am bring this over from the other blog since it was once of those late night tweets before the new blog was posted. I am sure some will get a kick out of it.

    This is my latest tweet.

    Why does @melissagorga “I’m the victim” scene from the reunion remind me of this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIcC8YJrevQ

      Perfect! LOVES it! I’m glad I inspired you too, Rabble.

      BTW, did you (or anybody else) figure out the movie that had the line: “LEARN it. LOVE it. LIVE it.”? I actually think I’m saying the line out of order, but it’s close enough. So, I don’t care.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I can’t remember, it’s one of those teen movie things that sticks in your head but you just can’t place it. Now on to other matters..
        What about prom, Blane?

  46. Winston says:

    Just watched a Bravo Reunion teaser for RHNJ and I am so confused….Jacqueline accuses Juicy Joe of cheating on Teresa with a secretary and the babysitter….what??? Isn’t Teresa’s babysitter her mom so doesn’t that mean that Jac is implying Joe slept with his mother-in-law? Jac is really losing it…for real. I swear these women are just grasping at straws here. Their claims are getting so ridiculous I find it hard to keep myself from laughing. OY!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I THOUGHT I noticed those furtive glances Mama Gorga and Joe gave each other every now and then onscreen. I told myself I was just imagining things and that Mama Gorga would never betray her daughter that way.

      I’m so glad Jac is going to let me know that my instincts were correct! And how could I even refuse to entertain the notion that Teresa’s OWN mother would betray her? I mean, everybody ELSE in her family has. What would make Mama Gorga so different from everybody else in that family? *Shrug*

    • chismosa says:

      i don’t know if her parents are always always her babysitter. My friend whose in-laws are from Italy, elderly– they go back to Italy a few months of the year, then return here. Not sure if Signora Gorga and husband stay in Jersey all year round? I don’t know… maybe they meant like a one-time babysitter they had? I used to babysit ALL the time when younger so i don’t know….

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      It’s all about one-upping eachother. Teresa first says Jac confided in her that Chris cheated on her years ago which is why she doesn’t let him go out with alone. So then Jac comes back with Joe cheated with every female that enters their house. In the end, Joe is smirking because he knows that both he AND chris having cheated. Allegedly and IMO

  48. VV says:

    ….more tweets from Jac about Tre.

    “T signed a deal for her covers.She got paid.She admitted it to me.She actually poised for her pictures.She’s admitted that.I tell the truth”

    • Exit4 says:

      Because Jac didn’t pose for People? Melissa has posed for magazines. It’s called a photo shoot. Magazines don’t guarantee covers. Deals work both ways and a magazine doesn’t know who will sell, what big story may occur etc. they may promise X number of stories, but not covers. Not that it matters. Jac got paid like Teresa did-for photos, or the rights to the photos. Meaning they can take 1000 photos and use them anyway they’d like in any context. The magazines know what they are doing, Housewives don’t dictate it

      Jac has to change her time because now she’s doing what she complained about all year. That’s why you never complain about things you yourself may do.

      • Nancy says:

        No one has offered me a cover deal. 😦

    This is my favorite place on the internet. I know that I don’t post every day but I’m usually reading. Just today, I made a stupid comment so I could check the comments via email. You all keep me company all day while I am working my boring job.
    I’ve posted how Silex makes me want to throw up. I don’t think that’s a popular opinion here as Silex may be seen as a Friend of the Blog. No one ever made me feel unwelcome about that.
    I’ve never seen anything racist here either. The only people I’ve seen anyone run off here are trolls. Although before the troll is run off, we do tend to play with them first like when a cat catches a frog. Disable by eating the legs and slowly watching it die. However, I don’t think that happens with people that have a different opinion that the majority.

  51. I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    “Couples Therapy” is VERY good. I’m watching right now. At first, I thought Alex and Simon were going on the show to extend their 15 minutes of fame, but they actually do seem sincere when they say they have been having some serious problems and need help.

    • Zoey says:

      What about the guy from The Green Mile and his young bride? Wowzer. They are not letting Simon and Alex get any camera time yet!

      If it’s legit therapy I can see where Alex and Simon could benefit. Who knows why they went on the show, but we’ve seen some power struggles and anger with them that was real, so I hope it helps them.

      • Sus says:

        I don’t know how couples therapy on TV could be legit. Sadly, I think they have to take anything that comes up. It doesn’t seem like they have a stable job to depend on for bill paying. With the economy the way it is, their creepy factor due to what was shown on TV, it must be brutal for them to find something except TV/entertainment stuff. The creepy factor will butt in there.
        Think about it. Some company hires Alex to work in their marketing department. People who watch the show and read about it online know that Simon you-know-whated when Alex was giving birth. The ick factor is going to do them in if they try anything in the private sector.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        It’s like “The Green Mile” guy and his wife were basically the “center/focus” of the first show because certain people found them to be so offensive. Nik Ritchie called him a child molester and called Courtney Stodden “trash” (Of course, this was AFTER Doug, “The GM Guy” asked Nik’s wife if she was “high.” However, SHE basically started things off by asking Courtney Stodden — who happened to be dressed like a HOOKER — “What kinda outfit is THAT, Girlfriend??!!”).

        JoJo (from K-Ci & JoJo) also said he was offended by them because he has kids, and he’s not cool with a grown man marrying a child.

        • Zoey says:

          I missed the first few minutes so I missed the first diss by the Courtney girl. I think it might creep me out too, to be around them. She seems so into him though, so…I don’t know what to think!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          No way do I think that Courtney girl is 17. I think she is more like 27.

          • Zoey says:

            I had never heard of her, but there was an article out a while back about her parents approving of the marriage even though she was underage. I didn’t realize who the guy was at the time, just that he was 50 and she was 16.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Girl,

          Liam Neeson has long been rumored to be HUNG like a HORSE. He is actually said to be one of the “biggest” in Hollywood, if you catch my drift. Former model, Janice Dickinson, talked about this in her autobiography. She said that when he unzipped his pants, an Evian bottle popped out. She also said that when they dated, he was on the rebound from his relationship with Helen Mirren, and he could NOT stop talking and obsessing about how heartbroken he was over Helen Mirren. Janice, being the MATURE and SANE person she is, confessed that this so pissed her off that she used an item of Helen Mirren’s clothing that Liam Neeson still hung on to in a “unique” way. In short, she WIPED HER ASS with it and thought, “Take that, Helen, you BITCH!!” She did not tell Liam she did this, though.

          I’m sure he found out once Janice’s book was released, though.

          Ever notice how Liam Neeson always comes across so humble and a bit shy/reserved in interviews? Ever notice how he seems to be the “strong, silent” type?

          That’s because he does not NEED to TALK. *Shrug*

          Google “Liam Neeson well endowed” if you’re bored one day. It’s all there.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Joey Gorga should take note. Liam never talks about his member. Because it speaks for itself.

            • Zoey says:

              It probably, literally, speaks for itself, lol! I wonder if it has scared any women away, lol. That is a big man!

              Excellent point Lainey! If ya have to talk about it all the time, and how satisfied your wife is, etc, hmmm….makes one wonder.
              I don’t dislike Melissa, I find her kinda meh, but she doesn’t strike me as a woman who is satisfied, if ya get mah drift.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                i get it,

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                There was this REALLY nice, cute, but kinda shy guy in New Orleans named C.J. He wore his heart on his sleeve, and he had his heart broken in Jr. and High School because girls just though he was “too nice” and not enough of a “bad boy.” My cousin was one of the ones that broke his heart.

                Well, honey, people –including C.J. — started having sex, and word got out that C.J. was hung like a horse. After that, he had more women throwing their drawers at him than he could handle. He was a “relationship-type” of guy, though. So, he usually had a girlfriend as opposed to sleeping around.

                One of my slutty girlfriends caught him in between relationships. She said she wanted to give him a try, and she talked a lotta sh*t about how good she was in bed to entice him. So, he is finally seduced. She said that when he pulled down his pants, she got scared and thought about running out of the room, but she had talked so much sh*t that she felt like she had to back it up.

                He had a freckle-faced, redheaded 1/2 brother. They looked ABSOLUTELY NOTHING alike (C.J. was brown-skinned with black hair and no freckles). Both of them were tall, though. They had the same Dad but different Mothers. His redheaded older brother was also allegedly as GIFTED as C.J. (He was a big HO, though. He wasn’t nice and sensitive like C.J.).

                Oh yeah, my cousin felt like an IDIOT when she found out. She missed out. *Shrug*. That’s what she gets for wanting “a bad boy.” Her parents loved him. So, I knew that was the “kiss of death” for his ass. My cousin, like me, was a bit of a rebel.

                The last time I saw him was at a wedding in N.O. with his beautiful wife. They were tearing up the dance floor and were all lovey-dovey. She could NOT stop smiling either.

                I knew WHY too.

                LUCKY BITCH!!

                • Zoey says:

                  I was going to ask you for CJ’s info until you said he was happily married, lol! Good for him.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    LOL. Marriages break up all the time. I am going to put C.J. on my list (along with “hot unknown fireman”) of people to look up the next time I go back to “the N.O.”

                    That’s like the man I SHOULD have married. We had a chance meeting years after we broke up and had the best time talking and laughing. We both said it would be better if we did NOT keep in touch and NOT try to be “friends” (because the chemistry was still there. Dangerous territory).

                    I discussed it afterwards with some girlfriends, and we debated. Some of them said there was no harm in being friends. Others disagreed. We needed a tie breaker.

                    I said, “Well, maybe we should just try to keep in touch every now and then. Maybe it would be good to maintain contact. I mean, you never know. His wife could get hit by a BUS.”

                    There was a pause, and one girlfriend who was against me being friends with him said, “Detox, now how likely is THAT going to happen?!”

                    I responded, “Well, if I am the one DRIVING the bus in this hypothetical….that bitch is DEAD!!!”

                    That statement broke the tie. The “Can’t Be Friends With Him Group” won. After laughing their asses off, the other side had to wave their white flags and agree. *Shrug*

                    • Zoey says:

                      Lol!!! That is frickin hilarious! Somehow I knew you were going to get a bus headed in her direction! Wonder if they’re still together…hmm.

            Wow Detox that is such crazy “insider” info. I’ve heard people say he is very nice in person Even my Wendy said something the other week. But I’ve also heard from a minor actor friend I have who worked with him once.

            PPS: what does “shrug” mean? I thought one shrugs when being sheepish or indifferent about something. I hear this term a lot on here and never know what it means.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              To me, my *shrug* just basically means, “I’m just putting this information out there as a MESSENGER. It’s not that DEEP to me, though. So, please don’t KILL me, the MESSENGER.”

          • chismosa says:

            And what is with him and Helen Mirren? Isn’t she like years older than him? I am too lazy to wiki this

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Yes, she’s LOTS older than him. This is another reason Janice Dickinson jsut could not “get” Liam’s obsession with and heartbreak over being dumped by her.

              Janice is shallow.

              I also James Woods makes the list most famous well endowed.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Yep, I’ve heard about James Woods and Willem Dafoe too. I think I may have also heard that about Ashton Kutcher. That’s probably why Demi was so strung out over him. I’ve also actually heard that about Prince (That whole height thing is B.S. The man I SHOULD have married was only 5’8, and he was bigger than average. The man I ALMOST married but Thank God I did NOT, was 6’3 and average).

              Oh yeah, I’m here to tell you that not ALL Black men are well-endowed. So, make of that what you will. *Shrug* And my saying that, as a Black woman, does NOT mean that I am a self-hating RACIST that hates her own people. Just to be CLEAR!!! 😉

    Sounds like the Giudice family, not Teresa, tried to tear Anderson Cooper a new one on twitter for his interview with her. Anyone know who? Anderson was talking with the comedian that is Kimmel about it I guess last night.
    This may have been discussed and if so sorry. My computer isn’t scrolling properly and its taking an eternity to try to get up to this mornings posts.

    • melthehound says:

      I think someone posted links to the Kimmel interview. I don’t know what happened on Twitter, that’s a playground I don’t venture on to. So if it wasn’t Teresa, Who was it? Gia? Or maybe it was Milania. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a twitter from Joe posted here, or the girls for that matter. According to many here, Teresa is too stupid to do it anyway so it couldn’t have been her, Right? Baby Poison Joey is now a Marco sister so he’s not related to that clan anymore. Kathy hates her, Rosie wants to cut her tongue out, her mother is a phucking liar just like she is, and I forgot what her father is. I guess maybe Petey G could have done it since he made an odd appearance on the show. Why don’t we ask Jacqueline. She always knows who these people are. Oh, Wait, She won’t tell but will spill whatever they say as fact, as long as it serves whatever her purpose is.

        Stupid people hire super talented blog and twitter writers ; I want to hire them for some help on a project I’m working on so i really hope I can find out their contact info somehow.

        • melthehound says:

          Why don’t you just send them a tweet if, as you say, stupid people hire others. Write to the Others via the medium, Twitter in this case, and there you go.

            Beautiful!

          • chismosa says:

            that’s not a bad idea, but as i said right above, i am not a twit and don’t want to become one. Sorry! It’s enough with all these blogs and general sites to keep up on stuff! I closed up facebook too. Narcissism is an issue i’m working on 😉

            • chismosa says:

              ps i knew you were joking but i read your comment quickly at first and thought, a medium- oh maybe the Long Island Medium can help me find these writers… ha ha

              • melthehound says:

                Whatever works for you. I don’t do twitter either but as Noelle suggests, if you want to at least see what’s going on, you can. All you need is a name. They are often posted here. I actually meant ‘medium’ to be media such as, twitter. If a psychic can help, by all means 😉

                  You don’t even need to have a name on twitter…you just type in their name i.e. twitter.com/teresa_giudice or twitter.com/jaclaurita, etc and you can see what they say. Speaking of, Jac’s twitter followers jumped up 100,000 in the past couple weeks. Suspicious.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      KLMH, I just looked at Pete Giudice’s timeline, and it was him. He sounds as charming as his brother.

      Talk about! He could hardly contain himself, lol! I loved when they puts the wigs on and did the scene, even though I thought they did terrible! I don’t think either one knew who Caroline or Teresa were enough to nail it.

      • cocfarm says:

        I loved it when Ethan tried to grab all is correct body parts when speaking as caroline about cosmetic surgery. Too funny.

      1979?
      That’s ridiculous.
      was she 8 yrs old at the time?
      I have to be missing something.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        The charge was in 97, so I think she was 18. I don’t think she could have been a minor if the records were available to the public,

      • melthehound says:

        1979 is the date of birth. She’d be one talented thief to catch a case as soon as she came out into the world.

    Just looked up Helen Mirren. It’s who I thought it was, even though she has many different looks over the years. The pic I clicked on shows her in a bikini at 66, and she looks amazing! She says it’s due to using her Wii so much, different games and sports on it.
    I might have to check into one of those.

    • NJBev says:

      yeah,. No. she’s not being completely honest

      • Zoey says:

        Haha, you think? You’re probably right. Even if she’s had a million nips and tucks, I’m impressed that she looks so toned, not saggy, like her arms and stuff. No bingo arms there!
        She had to have had her boobs lifted, ’cause no way those puppies are way up there after 66 years, I’m not buying that.

        I think I’m calling it a night! Enjoyed chatting and laughing with all of you guys and gals tonight.
        I will probably have dreams of all these hunks we talked about tonight, and hopefully can keep out the visions of ‘poison in the pool’ and the Simon revelation…eewww.

  57. Zoey says:

    One question before I retire. What about my main man Christopher Walken? Lol, any scoop on him?

  58. I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    This is REALLY the LAST one in the “rumored to be hung like a horse club: Vinny from “The Jersey Shore.” Snooki, who’s slept with more than her fair share of guys, says he is HUGE.

    Vinny walked into “The Jersey Shore” as the nerdy, pale, quiet, Mama’s Boy, who graduated with a super-high G.P.A. from college and on his way to law school before the show.

    Caroline Manzo will be now on HGTV “Celebrities at Home”… Will they show her kitchen?

    • cusi77 says:

      Yeah! They showed her kitchen and is much more beautiful than it shows on RHONJ! She did really good! Her house is huge and clean. Even though that her taste it’s different than mine, her house is really nice. I think this was made before Lauren’s lap band… They were together when showing the magnificent kitchen and doing some cooking. Here you have! I did a recap!!! Yay!
