Ratings (no – not from last night!)

Ratings for the Real Housewives of Miami were under one million again – with 847,000 viewers.   Rumors have been swirling that the show was almost scripted by the cast.  My opinion – it feels too contrived.  Adriana de Moura in particular was pretty vocal about wanting to bring more drama, but the drama she’s bringing is boring, boring, boring and frankly feels made up.  The way things are going they may end up cutting this season short – although ratings are still over some of their other shows.  Compared to the other two housewives shows that are airing right now – the New York franchise is bringing in DOUBLE the ratings – and the New Jersey franchise – TRIPLE.   Watching blog hits – we usually have spikes on Sunday and Monday evenings as the shows air.  For Miami – nothing more than the nights when Top Chef or Flipping Out airs.  Maybe Bravo should just buy Real Housewives of Vancouver from Slice and play that.  Those ladies will bring in the ratings.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 2 of 4,487,098

by Stars99

Did everyone invest in a biohazard suit for Part 2 of the RHoNJ Reunion?  Good job! Watch out for low flying crazies!  They’re advertising that nothing is off limits in this part of the Reunion… rut roh…

Of course we revisit Rosie’s rantings from last week… I refuse to type that many ***s again…  Caro is trying to tell Tre she sees hurt in her eyes and in Mel’s eyes…  Tre is shocked and ashamed that Kathy is calling Tre’s mom a liar…and she thinks this whole thing is disgusting… well, Kathy thinks Tre is disgusting.  I gotta go with Tre, here… I think the whole dang thing is disgusting.  Whoa… not sure when the last time was that I wholeheartedly agreed with Tre about anything… but there ya go!  Backstage we see Lauren, in all her slenderness, go over to talk to Rosie who is still hyperventilating about what Tre has said about her dead father… Whoa… I can’t even believe I’m gonna type this… but I’m also agreeing with Lauren when she tells Rosie to just relax and to think about how her dad would want her to react… yikes… I quickly run to the window to see if pigs are indeed, flying!  Lauren implores Rosie to, “Just make him proud, and handle yourself.”  Rosie promises to be calm.

Meanwhile, back on the crazy couch, Caro is yelling at Tre, “This is 15 minutes of fame.  You’re going to wake up one day and you’re going to be alone.”  Tre insists that she has family and that she will never be alone. Caro points out that Mel and Kathy are family – and Tre responds with, “Yeah, and look what they’re doing to me!”  Caro responds with, “And look what you’re doing to them” simultaneously as Kathy says, “You did it first!” Melissa, because again, she hasn’t gotten much reunion screen time up to this point, insists “You’re the one who has said all the negative things.  You sit here and bash my marriage and my husband…”  The memory challenged Tre says, “I’m not bashing your marriage.”  Mel says, “Yes, you did, you did ALL season long – and when you finally get a taste of your own friggen medicine… you get up and you sit over there…” [Cuz remember, Tre switched couches at the end of Part 1 to sit next to her new BFF Caro – I’m sure they’re gonna make a date to go out for lattes and shopping later.] Mel continues, “But we all have had to deal with your bulls*** all season long.  Guess what, you don’t get to sit here and play victim.”  Tre insists she’s not playing the victim.  I actually agree with her, too.  Omg… Then Mel says something kinda funny, well actually she screams it, “Guess who the victim is?  I’m the victim!”  All this screaming can’t be good for the vocal chords, Mel.  Then Tre reiterates that she hasn’t talked to her bro in a year… and Mel says other inconsequential stuff… blah blah blah…

Andy, Captain Useless, then says that he was kind of trying to make a turn in the conversation by bringing up Kathy and Rosie – as an example of a nice relationship.  Kathy makes some snide comments about Tre trying to destroy her relationship with Rosie as well.  Wow, Tre must be awfully powerful to be able to break up sisters.  Hmmm, I wonder if they’re gonna handcuff Rosie to the chair when she comes out – I’d frisk her at the very least.  Cue the footage when Rosie tell Kathy’s kids that she’s gay…  and Tre in her talking head interview says that when they were growing up, that Kathy hated that her sister was gay.

Wow, Rosie seems to have taken some horse tranquillizers offstage cuz now she’s as calm as can be.  Andy asks Rosie about her “coming out talk” and Rosie said that Kathy’s kids are so sweet to her and have always just looked at her as their funny Aunt Rosie… not as their gay Aunt Rosie. She doesn’t think they knew she was gay until they talked.  Wow, with Rosie’s new dark hairdo and glitter eye makeup… you can really see the family resemblance.  I wonder if she’s trying to be like Tre, too?  Rosie admits that after their father died, that she and Kathy had some rocky times.  Rosie had met a girl who was an opportunist and Kathy could see that… and they started fighting about that girl.  As she glared at Tre, Rosie insisted their arguments were never about her being gay but that they were about this girl that was taking her down a wrong path.  Tre insists that before the girlfriend that she wanted Rosie to hang with her and Kathy… but that Kathy didn’t want that to happen.  She said that she had invited Rosie over and that even Joe had also invited her… Rosie splits a gut and says, “When?”  Meanwhile, Kathy infers that Rosie wouldn’t want to hang around someone like Joe.  Some more fighting ensues, but Rosie shuts everyone up and says, “You can say whatever you want to say about me and my sister, because no one will ever break that… nothing.”  Tre says, “God bless.”  Rosie explains that after she struggled a lot, that she came out to her mom after her father died and her mother’s reaction was that she wouldn’t trade her for a billion dollars.  Gotta love that!

Oh goody… we get to talk about that RV trip that lasted for only like 82 episodes!  Andy said it was fun to see everyone getting along.  I kinda doubt that – Bravo wanted there to be more drama.  Andy brings up the infamous toast and asks Tre if she meant to leave Kathy out of it. Tre says, “Not at all.”

Kathy insists that it’s not that big of a deal about the toast, BUT… that it did seem very obvious.  Tre says, “Next Andy” as she tries to push towards the next topic. Lololol… Kathy gets cranky that she’s being ignored and feels the need to do a play by play of Tre’s actions for Andy who is actually sitting right there.  Kathy insists Tre is mad that she called Tre’s mom a liar… and Tre wants to, “Stop with the bulls***… you and your fake nose and your fake lips – stop it.”

Cut to Jac pointing at her own boobs and her lips – coincidentally pointing out the two areas that Tre may or may not have had professionally enhanced.  Then Kathy acknowledges that she was out of line for saying things about Tre’s mother and that she apologizes.  Andy prods Tre if she accepts the apology?  Tre says that her mom doesn’t deserve that kind of treatment – and that she’s a wonderful lady.  Kathy insists that what she said was wrong and wonders if it’s too much for Tre to understand.  As a peace offering and a physical symbol that she accepts Kathy’s apology, Tre makes the big 5 foot move back to sit on the Mel/Kathy couch.  Of course, she insists that Mel and Kathy move back over to their previously assigned seats in the process so she can take that highly coveted spot next to Andy… but hey, at least she moved.

After establishing that Caro didn’t have any fun on the trip, we now we get to talk about the feud between Caro and Tre that escalated into the big fight on the last day.  After seeing footage of Tre apologizing to Caro, Andy asks Caro why she doesn’t accept Tre’s apology.  Caro says that it’s because it’s not sincere.  Caro said, “When we were in Napa, you called me a ‘C.’  You called me a b***.  You laughed at me. What did I do?”  Tre said that it was because Caro didn’t want to accept her apology and that Tre had done nothing to Caro.  Caro’s stuck on the fact that Tre called her a c***.   Tre shoots a general question out, “Did I call her a c***?”… She gets a resounding “Yes!” from the peanut gallery.  And then, with the excuse heard ‘round the world, Tre says, “Well, when I’m mad, and when I’m drinking wine, what’s wrong with that?”  Wow.

Andy inserts a question about if Jac was pretending to sleep during the big fight because she’s afraid of Caro.    Jac says that she, “Just didn’t want to deal with any more bulls***.”  Caro says she’s actually afraid of Jac.  Good to know.  Andy implies that Caro is a bully and a “viewer” asks Tre if she regrets how she treated Danielle now that she’s been on the being bullied end of the stick?  Tre responds with a seemingly honest, “Yes.”  Caro challenges Tre to name just one instance of when Caro bullied Tre.  Tre says she had been bullied by her for the whole season.  Caro insists on one example… Tre can’t think of one specifically… but tries to say that the viewers and the magazines are insisting that she’s being bullied… But then Tre says that she’s her own person and that Caro really isn’t bullying her.

Basically, it seems like she’s saying she doesn’t consider herself to have been bullied because she doesn’t let it affect her.  Everyone, including Andy, immediately jumps on her because she is seemingly contradicting herself.  It seems like at this point, she’s really trying to explain herself but unfortunately, she’s been unable to think on her feet fast enough to come up with a single time that she’s been bullied by Caro.  She lamely brings up that Caro didn’t accept her apology… and that idea was tossed out because it really doesn’t constitute bullying.  Then they start in on how Caro and Jac were there for Tre when the bankruptcy hit and also when Mel and Kathy first came on the show.  Tre insists she didn’t know they were coming on the show and that it hurt her.  Mel says that Tre did know about it.  Caro emphasized again how rude she was to Mel and Kathy at first and that she had to apologize to them for her behavior.  Caro poses the question to Tre, “How do you think I felt when I saw you and my sister, Dina at your Fabellini party?”  Caro reveals that it felt like a knife in her heart but Tre said that Dina is her friend and was there to support her.  Caro insists that Tre invited Dina there just to talk about Caro. Caro then tries to compare Tre’s bringing Dina onto the show for a portion of one segment on one show without Caro knowing about it – to Bravo’s bringing Mel and Kathy on as regular housewives without Tre knowing about.  Everyone is insisting it’s the same thing.  Really?  Are you kidding me?  After realizing that it hurt Caro when she and Dina were talking about Caro and that danged cookbook, Tre sincerely apologizes to Caro for hurting her.

Now, it’s finally Melissa’s turn… this season, according to Andy, she went from being Joe’s star in the bedroom to being a star in the recording studio.  Gag.  Oh surprise, Mel has a new song, “I Just Wanna” and she has recorded a new video.  Tre is asked for an explanation about the portion on her blog that stated that she hadn’t ever heard Mel sing.  Tre insists that she hasn’t actually ever heard her sing and that it looked like she was lip-syncing every single time.  Mel says that she wouldn’t ever say anything negative about Tre’s cookbook – and Tre dares Mel to sing for them right then and there so Mel starts singing on the spot.  Gotta say she sounds better than I thought she would.  Then Tre goes off the deep end and starts singing, “On Display… On Display” in a not so nice mocking way.  Tre wants Mel to sing the whole song.  Please, no… please don’t make us hear the whole song until next season.  Then they go into a whole brouhaha about whether or not Mel lip-syncs – and Mel says she sings to tracks which is different than lip-syncing.  Can you believe they actually bring up the cookbook again and questions Tre if she actually cooks the recipes?  Andy asks Mel why they’re selling their mansion that they seem to love and after Joe had built that nice recording studio, etc.  Mel said they’re moving because she doesn’t want her kids to go to the same school as Tre’s kids – that it’s not about money because they can afford their home 10 times over.  She cried. Tre says that their kids don’t even go to the same school.  Mel says she’s thinking of the future and that they will ultimately go to the same junior high.  Mel said they had originally moved to that location so that the cousins could be together.  Now they’re moving to keep the cousins apart.  So sad.

The conversation turns to the comments Tre made to her brother about Mel being a gold digger and that she will leave him for someone richer at some club where she’s performing. Tre is asked what the difference is between Mel performing at clubs and Tre making appearances at her book signings, because couldn’t Tre also meet a better, richer man along the way? Tre acknowledges that she probably could. (Well then, why don’t you?.. Please… please do it for the sake of the kids!)  Then Tre clarifies that her comments were between she and her brother… and that she didn’t make them in front of all of America to see.  Mel starts to list off some comments that she thinks Tre has made on camera throughout the season, such as:  “She is a gold digger.” “Melissa wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth – she likes his money.”  “She would leave him for a richer man.”  Tre insists she didn’t call Mel a gold digger, but that it was her husband who had said that.  Then Tre physically turns to Andy and says, “This is what happened, she dated my brother’s best friend…”  Mel stops her and touches Tre’s shoulder and asks her to speak towards her… Tre says, “Get your hands off of me; I will press charges right now.”  Then of course, we have to hear all about Tre grabbing Kathy’s face again. Ugh. Mel doesn’t want to argue anymore.  I don’t want them to argue anymore, either.

Andy moves the topic to Danielle… are you freakin’ kidding me?  Sigh…. They discussed how Tre got really upset at that Reunion show when the subject of the birth of Tre’s nephew was brought up by Danielle.  Tre said she got upset in that moment because it clicked to her that Danielle had been talking to Mel.  Mel denies that she was talking to Danielle at that time – and insists that she had to have gotten the info from someone else.  Mel has admitted to talking to Danielle, but just not at that time. Then Tre launches into the concept that Mel wrote the song, “On Display” about Tre.  Andy brings the conversation back around to something that keeps coming up – that Mel is on the show to hurt Tre.  Andy directly asks Mel why she’s on the show.  Mel says, “Because it’s an opportunity, just like everyone else.”  Mel insists that anyone else would have done the same thing.  Tre says that Mel came on the show to destroy her.  A viewer asks why Tre can’t let go of the “they’re on MY show” grudge she holds against Mel and Kathy.  Tre insists that she did let it go when they were in Napa.  Mel says that the only reason she let it go was because she no longer had Caro and she no longer had Jac as friends.  Tre instantly reacts with a dramatic mock bowing… Yes, folks, she actually got on her knees in front of the coffee table deity, and bowed up and down piously chanting, “Thank you, god. Thank you, god. Thank you, god.”  Mel says that Tre is being fake.  By the way, in case you didn’t already know… Mel then imparts some wisdom about how the person who says they’re not fake is in actuality the fakest one in all the land… and everyone knows this by now.  No really, I’m not making up this crap!

The 10 second fake out between commercials has Juicy Joe casually on the set… talking about boogers and Botox.  Tre insists that Joe needs Botox.  Joe asks for a Red Bull cuz he’s so tired.  Andy encourages him to sip it… but of course, he guzzles it cuz he’s da man.  (Insert gratuitous eye rolling here.)

Andy’s really grateful that Joe came today because they’ve received a lot of questions that have to do with him, too.  Joe thinks Tre is great and he’s proud of her.  Isn’t that sweet? Joe confirms that he doesn’t watch the show – however, he did watch “Celebrity Apprentice” when Tre was on it.  They show clips of Joe and Tre throughout the season, and Andy asks Joe who he was talking to on “that” phone call.  After a couple of painful beats of silence and awkwardness, Joe responds, “Uh, Albie…A friend of mine, a long-time friend of mine that was taking care of things at home.” [and who will also lie to my wife for me… well, he didn’t actually say that… but, you know….]

So Andy tries to clarify that he wasn’t actually talking to a girlfriend… and Joe says, “If it was a girlfriend, I would have ripped my mic off and thrown it into the bushes. I basically, shouldn’t have said what I said to her.  That word isn’t in my vocabulary.  I messed up, so what are ya gonna do?” When Tre was asked about how she felt when she first saw the clip, she said that she was hurt – but that it’s not a word that Joe ever says to her.  Joe says that he regrets saying it… Tre says that he apologized and that “It’s for better or for worse.”  Tre says she’s not going to divorce him because they’re happy together.  Wow… did she see the same clip I saw?

Melissa couldn’t resist bringing up the point that the part of the clip that made everyone skeptical was the part when Joe was groaning.  Tre flips the table back onto Mel by saying – that of course MEL had to bring that part up… and then Tre makes a birdlike squawking sound complete with animated mouth gestures.  Andy asks Joe why he would have had to pretend to speak in another language if it was just another co-worker.  Joe actually said that it wasn’t another language, but that Albie had put a Spanish pizza guy on the phone cuz he was having a problem.  Cough.  Joe says he’s sure he’s not the only husband out there that calls their wife a name – that there are plenty of them out there.  He explained that they were having an argument.  Most of the time, their arguments last an hour or two and then they’re over it.  But this one had lasted 3 days.  Joe then thanks Andy for showing that part where he calls Tre the “C***” word… because it cost him a lot of money at the jewelry store.  Andy asks how much it cost him.  A lot… Evidently, it cost him the earrings Tre’s wearing, a ring that she’s wearing – and a couple of other shiny and sparkly things.  Boy, their creditors are gonna love this portion of our program.

Joe was asked how he likes it that Tre brings home the bacon.  Joe says that he pays the bills.  Tre chimes in that her money is her money, and his money is also her money.  Tre says that Joe has never questioned her – and that she can spend whatever she wants.  Wait… didn’t they both file for personal bankruptcy?  I know they rescinded it… but wow. Anyway…  Andy tries to get Jac to comment on Tre and Joe’s marriage and she refuses. Tre brings up that Chris had cheated on Jac a long time ago and that it’s why he’s not allowed to go out and it’s the reason Jac still doesn’t trust him.  Joe says that no one gives a crap if Chris cheated on Jac or not, really.  He seems really eager to put this cheating topic away for good.
Jac sits up in her seat like she’s in 4th grade and blurts out, “Now that we’re being honest, he calls her those names all the time, and she calls him names and they punch each other.”  Andy wants to get back to the show… but Jac is having none of it.  Jac continues berating Tre, “Now that we’re going there, you said that he’s cheated on you several times, that you’ve caught him with a secretary and with a babysitter…”  Jac says that Tre had asked Jac what to do about it because she knew that Jac’s ex had cheated on her.  Tre said that if her husband had cheated on her that he wouldn’t be sitting on the couch next to her. Tre says that she would like to meet these women. Jac also says, “Honey, you walked in on him with someone on his desk at the office…  and the babysitter, too.”  Tre and Joe really react and both laugh at these allegations.  Jac said that Danielle had told her (really, can we please NOT talk about Danielle anymore?) that she was out with you guys, and that Joe was with a stripper the whole time.  Joe just repeats, “I was with a stripper?”  Andy incredulously asks, “Are you quoting Danielle, now?”  Jac says that she doesn’t believe Danielle half the time, but… Joe says that Jac should really know her facts before she talks because she has some serious issues and should have her head checked.  Dagnabit… don’t make me agree with…with… with… JOE!!!!  OMG… hell has frozen over!

Meanwhile, Tre can be heard in the background saying, “Oh my God. Oh my God.”  Andy asks point blank if Joe has ever cheated on Tre.  Joe says, “Never.  Can we go to another subject now?” Then the whole conversation turns to everyone calling each other fake… accusations fly about their marriages are just for show… and that they’re all opportunists.  Andy asks, “What’s wrong with being an opportunist?”  In the midst of the hullabaloo, Tre clarifies that she means that Mel is fake with her.  Everyone is talking over everyone else… each providing their own soliloquy.  Mel calls Tre and Joe, “Dumb and Dumber” and “Frik and Frak.” Tre accuses Mel that she even wants to sound like Tre.  Then Mel tells Tre to stop sweating it.  Tre’s reaction causes Mel to dare her and so she says, “Do you want to play?”  Tre responds, “Let’s play.”  Joe then asks the question we ALL have been asking, “Why am I here?”  And then he belches.  Seriously.  Fade to black.

Amazing Race – Leg 2 – Oct 7, 2012 by MelTheHound

Welcome back race fans… Here is where we stand after the premier episode.

  • Abbie & Ryan – Dating Divorcees
  • Trey and Alexis -Dating couple
  • Rob and Kelley -Married Monster Truckers
  • Amy and Daniel -On and Off Daters (AntiAviva) <I’ll explain this in a bit.
  • Jaymes and James – Chippendales
  • Caitlin and Brittany – Best Friends (Blondes)
  • Gary and Will – Substitute Teachers
  • Josh and Brent – Goat Farmers (Beekmans)
  • James and Mark – Friends (Rockers)
  • Natlalie and Nadiya – Twins

Last week we lost the lumberjack / cosmetic exec team, I still say due to the fact that the woman didn’t have the abacus out when they passed by her. Otherwise, she was just some woman sitting in the shade of an umbrella/shelter. We also watched as AntiAviva was overtaken in the last seconds of the day to take second place, losing the chance at the second million dollars. We ended the leg in Shanghai, where the 100 year old signal tower was the location of the pit stop.

This week, we’re leaving China for Indonesia. It’s a race to the airport to all be on the same flight. Or, that’s how it should have worked out. I guess there are a number of ways to get from Shanghai to Indonesia and most teams chose the same one which goes through Jakarta. All except Monster Trucker and his wife. They chose a flight that left earlier but had a connection Hong Kong and, had a 4 hour layover. I don’t think they bothered to check that bit of info. So, for the rest of the flight time, Monster trucker is slapping himself on the back for ‘running his own race’ instead of the race that everyone else is running. The final destination is Surabaya, Indonesia. In Jakarta, the earlier flight going to Syrabaya is full so to try and get an hour jump on everyone else, they all try to get on standby. In the end, Rockers (Long Hair Don’t Care) gets on the flight. The rest take the later (1 hour) flight.

Their destination for this part of the leg is the Alun Alun Stadium

Their next clue which will also contain a number, one through ten. I didn’t hear anything in the rules that they had to sequentially take the number in the order they arrived. Meaning the first team could have taken number ten but that would just be stupid, wouldn’t it? The task of the next day is ‘Bull Racing’ (I’ll explain that in a second), to commence at 8:30am. So by the time everyone arrives, for all intents and purposes, they are dead even again in the race. Monster truck gets number ten and the hint that their early airport exit strategy landed them in last place. By the way, aside from not being eliminated, the prize they are playing for today is the all important Express Pass. This will allow them up until a certain leg of the race to skip any task they choose and move on without penalty. It is usually played to get to the pit stop before the others.

The Bull Races.

The object of this is for each team member to ride on the back of a motor scooter racing against a team of bulls that has a jockey on a litter (one of those makeshift stretchers it looks like) being pulled by a team of smaller bulls. These aren’t American Rodeo bulls. The whole thing seemed kind of pointless to me except to put minutes between the racers. Remember those numbers they drew the night before? That was the order in which they went. The jockey riding the bull litter thing, holds on to the tails of the bulls as they drag him along. Of course the bulls won each race but the point wasn’t to win that race, it was to get to the other side and get the next clue, which was a roadblock, ‘Who wants to party?’.

On this roadblock a member of each team will do a multitask. First they will choose 4 kids from the crowd. Then these kids are placed on an amusement type ride that is powered by pedaling a bicycle. At the same time, they must make a balloon hat and animal for each kid on their ride. Total of 8 balloon things per team. They are using pumps to blow up the balloons by the way. Once they do that, they can continue.

I’m not sure what these things are called. The teams kind of get through it as they arrive except for substitute teachers as Will can’t seem to get the ends of the balloons tied to save his own life. I don’t know why that is but eventually they finish and get to move on as well.

The next stop is Wijaya Motors. It’s a place where they sell the motor scooters. This is really where the leg goes to hell for a lot of them. Some get cab drivers that know where they are going, others get drivers that have no clue and take them all over Indonesia before they find the place. I’m going to kind of cut to the chase here, the last teams to find it are AntiAviva, Monster Truckers, and Substitute teachers. This does come into play later on. They are after their next clue of course which turns out to be a detour.

The detour is ‘blocks of ice’ or ‘fish in a barrel’. Everyone but the Twins chooses the Ice task. The Ice task is to collect 10- 65 pound blocks of ice, put them on a truck, take them to a drop off point and cart them into the fish market. The fish in a barrel task is to collect 2 barrels of fish. Take them to the fish market, Sort them, and display them as shown by the sample. That’s 2000 fish my friends. Getting the ice blocks on the truck is a relatively simple task. Pick them up off of a dock and carry them. These are about 8 inches square about 4 or 5 feet long and they are formed to be uniform.

In case you are wondering, that blue pink and black blob in the above photo is one of the twins with her head jammed down in the fish barrel. (I didn’t see that photo attached NMD) As the ice deliveries are arriving at the fish market, the twins finish their task and are given their clue which tells them to run to the pit stop located within the market grounds. As the teams with the ice arrive and begin moving it into the storage area of the market, several lose the loads and the ice breaks into smaller pieces. Doesn’t matter as long as they deliver the ten blocks of ice.

I’ve had a real shitty night here so I’m just going to cut to the chase.

The Twins take first place and win the express pass, AntiAviva due to a dyslexic cab driver is eliminated. It’s a shame, I was really hoping this would be a non elimination round and I do think that all other things being equal (cab drivers etc), Amy and Daniel had a real chance to win. I’m a little disappointed I guess that I haven’t really seen any nastiness in this game so far this season that I can really snark on. It’s early though.

If you missed it, it may show up On Demand in your area or you can watch it here…

    Regarding Melissa’s HiGHlarious tweet: “Melissa Gorga: “I BET YOU THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT YOU……DON’T YOU, DON’T YOU…”

    well, as I have always said to anyone who quoted that Carly Simon song to talk about people who think everything revolves around them…

    “You’re so vain – you probably think this song is about you, don’t you, don’t you?”

    Well, it is, isn’t it?

    • LA_Debra says:

      Didn’t Melissa write that song? And she, the writer, said it wasn’t about Teresa? But you can’t argue with crazy, so believe what you want.

      • amalfi says:

        Melissa didn’t write that song, lmao.

        You’re right – cant argue with crazies.

      • amalfi says:

        I don’t think you understand that Melissa was quoting Carly Simon, so let’s disagree shall we.

      • LA_Debra says:

        Melisaa co-wrote On Display. Maybe you misunderstood, lmfao. Of course I know that Carly Simon wrote and performed “You’re so Vain”. And we do disagree.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          “…you probably think this song is about you…”

                And again, someone announces they are leaving….LMAO I love this place.

                I know this is not directed at me, but I did at one point say “Goodbye” to this blog too, so I just gotta ask……..
                So me coming back to read the one sided comments and maybe saying Happy Birthday to people is not welcome?….I should just leave and not bother with this blog anymore because I had an opinion and was tired of the meanness I was seeing???
                Look we all have been manipulated by Bravo. They are not filming a REALITY show they are showing a highly edited show called a reality show. However, if you (The Housewife/Husband) said the words they can be manipulated into a sentence to air on the show. Just ask Rich Wakile. Be careful what you say when you’re mic’ed up. That’s my point.
                Lynn created HER blog for everyone with an opinion, even those that were not exactly like hers. Yes we have seen the trolls who make digs and run away.
                I’ve been, I thought, part of this big Lynn Family, yet recently I’ve FELT vilified for expressing MY opinion.(it’s how I felt, even if it wasn’t said to me)
                I made some friends here and on twitter. I value those friends.
                I’m fed up with the constant barrage of mean tweets and posts. I just ignore those because no one is forcing me to read them. I un-follow if I’m past the point of ignoring.
                Life is short, as we all learned when Lynn passed. Let’s try to add a little Happiness and Sunshine into other peoples lives, even these crazy Housewives.
                Thank You and God Bless You to the people who have touched my life.
                Diana

                  ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

                  He wasn’t just ‘mic’ed up’, that was his talking head interview.

                  As for announcing your exit and returning, I’ve seen that announcement from you twice now and I’m guessing this is number 3. Come and go as you please. The point was it grows very tiresome when people feel the need to announce their exit and then harumph off in to lurkdom, to return and do it again. No one is stopping anybody from posting here and as you point out, no one is forcing you to read.

                • RealhouseWifeva says:

                  Sorry I have no idea what you are talking about or why you thought this was directed at you when it’s very clear who I am responding to. The other day contessa, I believe it was, made a great post about how some people here act like petulant children when they get angry and make a big production about how they are leaving the board. If you are going to leave, leave. Don’t make a big show about it for attention. If you need a break, take a break. But the whole “Wahh my feelings are hurt so I’m leaving!” silliness is ridiculous. Especially if those people come back the next day. I already have 4 children of my own who are dramatic enough.

                  • PJ says:

                    Isn’t that the truth. It reminds me of my daughter when she was young and got upset she would stomp upstairs stomping loudly to make sure we heard. We heard and ignored her stomping (well we did laugh, but not loud enough for her to hear) and we let her calm down before she was allowed to come back downstairs. BTW she doesn’t do that now that she graduated from college.

                  • contessa says:

                    My Comments from the other day about “leaving the blog”:

                    I hate petulant behavior in children and more so in adults. This blog is a wonderful place to gather, chat, rant, laugh, share and cry. In the last couple of days we’ve had a couple people say they are “out” and “done”, for whatever reasons. Here is my message…don’t announce it, just leave, goodbye….no one is going to beg you to stay. As NMD said this is not kindergarten and she has no time to police grown people. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, whether one likes Tre or hates her, or choices in a presidential debate, in today’s case a simple question about the debates that one person took as slur to Romney…if you don’t like that particular topic, skip it and go to the next one on the blog. If you feel the need to answer do it with respect. If you feel the need to leave, just go…I won’t beg you to stay (I hate childish behavior – I passed na, na, na, in 2nd grade).

                    We all miss Lynn terribly and she will forever be in our hearts, but to keep bringing up her name as what she would do or not do, is not fair to NMD and is an insult to all the work she has put into this blog (along with all the other reporters/helpers/writers). The blog has continued, and it is the same, but different and some here need to respect the differences in style and fact that NMD took on this huge huge project to keep us together.

                    Thank you NMD BIG TIME, and this is my opinion, feel free to attack or praise as I will take all comments under consideration with my advisory board in the royal chambers, Love Contessa

                    One new thing I would like to add, personally I am so sick and tired of hearing that the blog is going dark, this was said when Lynn was still with us and I see it occasionally here as well. It’s not the blog that has gone dark, it’s the subject matter from time to time. Those that don’t like it – skip that part and enjoy the rest. Once again let’s stop insulting our gracious hostess and the other readers for their opinions. Also people come and go on this site for various reasons, whether it be real life, subject matter, or whatever. But most stick around because it is a “good place” what I call “home on the blog”. Whenever someone has a problem/worry, it doesn’t matter if you were friend of foe in a previous conversation – that person will support you here and that is the pure and unvarnished TRUTH.

                    I am going back to the outer chambers (work), my royal coffers are empty and all I have left is my title. However all comments are welcome for royal consideration. XXOO

                    • PJ says:

                      I sent a text to my daughter about the stomping (a couple of posts up) when she was little, and she reminded me that she always announced very loudly that she was leaving before she stomped off. I had forgotten that part. But she was a child when she did that not a grown up.

                  I think it’s more of the swan songs that everyone is growing weary of.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              My comment had nothing to do with you, LA_Debra!!! 🙂 I was just “singing” some of the lyrics. Ironically, you did think it was about you. But it wasn’t. But that’s ok – I also typed below that “Your hat strategically tipped below one eye…” I hope you’re not wearing a hat, cause that really was not about you either. It’s a gorgeous day here in TEXAS. It’s Columbus Day, but I still have to work and I’m still happy!!! Happier than a witch in a broom factory! Watch this, it will (I hope) make you laugh: (and NO, I’m NOT saying you are a witch – – -I’m the happy little witch…I just love her laugh – it makes me happy.)

              • princesspindy says:

                As I am wearing an apricot scarf, I am offended by you Lainey. You had one eye in the mirror as you watched yourself, you can’t sit there and call yourself the victim!!!! Gavotte!!

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Sorry Princess, your scarf sounds lovely as we both have one eye in the mirror was we watch ourselves gavotte? I gavotte way better than you, in fact I gavotted first, go back and look at the footage. Yeah, that’s me gavotting.

                  Did you also have dreams there were clouds in your coffee, clouds in your coffee….? Maybe you’re creamers gone bad. hee hee!! did you see the witch in the broom factory, I love her laugh.

                  • princesspindy says:

                    Well you’re where you should be all the time! That’s not all you were doing, I went back to the footage and
                    YOU WERE A STRIPPER!!!

                    ***laughing as I ride away****

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      You take that bike with training wheels and ride right back over her! You don’t get to ride way just like that. We need to clear this up. I was not a stripper. I wore/modeled lingerie for men so they could see what it looked like before they bought it for their wives. It was totally legit. I was a legitimate model. I’m not sure why they put me in a room surrounded by two way mirrors. I couldn’t see the customers!! That was the frustrating part. I kept asking them when do I get to walk the runway? Alas, it was not to be. That’s when I started gavotting.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I love that song. “Your hat strategically tipped below one eye..”

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      LOL I agree…umm, YES, I think the song is about me…because it is! duh.

      I never even knew “On Display” talked about paparazzi and all that stuff..when no one even knew who Melissa was. LOL that makes it even funnier. SHe was so jealous of Teresa’s fame and by coming on the show she made Teresa even more popular. haha

      • LaineyLainey says:

        She did, she did make her more popular!!!!

        • RealHousewifeVA says:

          She made me like Teresa.. The first 2 seasons I actually wasn’t a big fan. Now, I actually want to buy her cookbooks! haha

          • amalfi says:

            “She made me like Teresa.. ”

            And there you have it. This is precisely why I disllike Melissa. I never ever wanted to like Teresa. And yet now I do.

            Thanks a lot Melissa.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Yep. Melissa (and the rest of ’em) made me like Teresa again.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Come to think of it,…same here. It all started with a brother calling his own sister “garbage” in order to make his mark on a reality show. “Fredo, you broke my heart..”

      I’ve always wondered about that.

  6. Three Blessed says:

    Why is Theresa with that horrible man?? I can see why she stayed before…for money but why now??? He is so terrible!! Ughhhh….

  7. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!!! In Tre’s last blog she says you will begin to see Mel and Kathy’s true colors. She’s right. Melissa is a wannabe and proved that last night. Here’s a question if she was so secure in her marriage and life. Why continuously attack attack attack Tre? It doesn’t make any sense unless both Mel and Kathy are just trying to stay relevant.

    They need to seriously revamp the “reunions!” Nothing ever is resolved and as a viewer either we hear screaming, talking over each other or constant cussing. So I say the next reunion Andrew creates a panel of viewer’s. After all we are the one’s who watch it and have questions. Also will keep it relevant!

  8. amalfi says:

    From recap: “Mel says she’s thinking of the future and that they will ultimately go to the same junior high. Mel said they had originally moved to that location so that the cousins could be together. Now they’re moving to keep the cousins apart. So sad.”

    Uh… yeah.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      LOL that’s the STUPIDEST EXCUSE I ever heard in my life. They always want Teresa to be honest…just admit your house was built on a construction loan and you need to GET OUT AND SELL IT.

      Like we are to believe they are thinking of where Antonia is going to be going to school 6 years from now? What’s so bad about her being in school with Gabriella..What a psycho Mel is!

    • melthehound says:

      MeGo Autotune, What a Tuesday.

    • plainviewsue says:

      To make that comment on national television, to say that you only have one daughter and you don’t want her to be exposed to her cousins at school, has to be one of the most hateful comments ever made at a reunion.

      • PJ says:

        Really hateful. The girls are different ages and wouldn’t all be in the same school at the same time anyway, so which of Teresa’s girls was she referring to? Not to mention that the school is probably large and they may not even come in contact with one another. Melissa is a snake and it is so clear that she made this up just to be mean. I think everything Teresa has said about Melissa is true and probably only a drop in the bucket of how bad Melissa really is.

        • ATLnNYC09 says:

          Exactly. Women know women. She had Melissa’s number from day 1.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It’s Milania.

          • PJ says:

            To call out a little girl, Milania, that is even meaner. Melissa is horrible.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I know, I hesitated to even type her name. I love that kid, but the handwriting was on the wall, no?

              • PJ says:

                True. I love all of Teresa kids. They have personality and they give the comic relief this show so desperately needs. But for Melissa to call out Milania when she so clearly loves her uncle and wants him in her life is just so mean I can’t even imagine anyone doing that. It gives a true insight into Melissa. Why not just leave the kids out of this? Say what you want about Teresa but at least her targets are adults not children, never children.

    • Donna says:

      I busted a gut laughing watching her search her mind for an answer. It was a LOLROFL for me.

  9. BB says:

    IT’S JUST A REALITY SHOW! Everyone please mind your manners. I didn’t see the reunion, but looking at the pictures above, Kathy should NEVER have had a nose job. She looked so much better before she did that. What was she thinking?

    Anyway, Happy Columbus Day and Monday.

  10. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Did Melissa even write On Display? I thought it was the kid at the beginning of the season. The young guy. The one that can REALLY sing, play the piano and is very talented?

    I might not like Joe Giudice but dammit if he doesnt tell the truth (well about everyone BUT himself and Teresa). Jac needs to have her head examined, nobody really cares about any of their marriages like that and finally Why am I here (watching this damn show)?

    • Lulu says:

      Great point I remember that. Your right she didn’t write it but is taking ALL the credit for it. Hmmm kinda reminds me of someone else……………:)

    • amalfi says:

      haha.. omg yes.

    • melthehound says:

      I don’t really care if she wrote it or not. Either way, it sucks. If she wants to take credit for that, let her.

      • mkvalle says:

        Did Melissa actually say she wrote the song? I didn’t hear that, I only heard crazy Teresa say it was written about her.

          I don’t really care if she wrote it or not. Either way, it sucks. If she wants to take credit for that, let her.

          I don’t know if she ever said she wrote it.

          • Hey Mel !! How the heck are ya…
            if memory serves me …. back when MEGO was starting her singing career ( cough cough ) she said that she would write down her thoughts and that young kid would help her put them to music etc…I think she also said when she was on ryan seacrest that she co wrote the song…

            Time for this HWS city to pack it in… Mom says they are all Bad Catholics…!!! with the exception of the kids..i dont like any of them.. !!!! I dont see any bullying going on either..Just a bunch of self centered conceited men and women who are destroying themselves and others around them for a few fleeting moments of fame ??? and $$$$$…. they should ALL be ashamed of themselves for the way they act and what they are teaching their children…Some ROLE MODELS these people are…!!!

  11. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Melissa really hit below the belt about saying she moved away to protect Antonia from Teresa’s daughters. We know the real reason why she moved but she basically indicted Teresa as a bad mother with that statement. Low blow Melissa.

        You. actually. describe. Teresa. perfectly.

        • disgrazia4 says:

          Perhaps you see Teresa that way but I do not. Teresa does lie for what she believes are noble reasons, to protect family secrets, to protect her parents. Melissa’s lies are created to advance her agenda to expose and to persuade. Teresa’s lies are spontaneous. Melissa’s are organized and setup in her PR Agency’s conference rooms. That is how I see it.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            yes, I sense an authenticity with Teresa. And more of a polished practiced approach by Melissa.

            • disgrazia4 says:

              The very fact that you and Detox see what I do reassures me that I perceive correctly. That’s not to say I unsure of what I see with Melissa. From the beginning she struck me as inauthentic and I persevered in my view when all seemed to be so enthralled with her. Time has revealed her true colors to many. Note: I neither whined about it nor did I threaten to leave at any time because of it, LOL!ツ】

              • calipam says:

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

                • disgrazia4 says:

                  There are many words I could choose to describe Teresa but, shrewd? It doesn’t fit to my mind, LOL. I’m sure you don’t have to worry about dumping T, nor do I. In this franchise, which surely has the lowest IQ combined and the most emotionally stunted cast ever, I think Teresa fares better than most of them. Does Folletto even have brains? Or is that rattling sound just rocks rolling and clacking around up there?ツ】

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Calipam, your post makes me want to be Tre’s friend. So sad what you said that she was dumped by her own brother. Makes me want to give her a hug.

  12. AZGirl says:

    Wow last night’s reunion was telling. A lot of background stuff came out thanks to Jac. All the guys have been naughty. I just thought it was only Albert cheating and I was giving him a “pass”. 🙂
    Jac is nuts to bring all the cheating stuff up. If Jac’s marriage is not solid then Teresa is not afraid to bring up Jac’s dirty laundry. One thing about Teresa is she does not back down. As Joe says “who cares”.
    Melissa and Joey are moving because they are broke and they moving because Mel’s past just caught up with her. Penny’s husband tweeted that Joey was Mel’s third choice. That Mel wanted to hook up with his brother in Cancun. That Mel was looking for a guy with money.
    This makes sense because Joey always acts insecure around Mel. It is like he does not have a short enough leash on her.
    As for Caroline bitterness all season? It is about Dina and Tre relationship. Caroline is jealous that Dina would rather spend time with Teresa than her own sister. It is not about the cookbook or any ugly things Teresa may have said. It is about Dina plain and simple.

    • amalfi says:

      I think Dina knows how to push Caroline’s buttons.

      Caroline wants Dina’s love and is taking it out on Teresa.

      That part I do feel sorry for all involved – except maybe Dina.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      It doesn’t help that Teresa went with Dina and Lexi last night to see Perez Hilton in Newsical the Musical (or whatever it’s called) and he tweeted a pic of them with him.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        They (D and Tre) can’t help it if Perez beat them to the tweet!

      • plainviewsue says:

        It is a joke. Caroline wants everyone to do what she tells them to do and Teresa won’t.

        How dare Caroline bring up about Dina being on the show for a 4 minute segment? Dina already said the editing changed the topic of the conversation. When she said blood isn’t always thicker than water, they were discussing Teresa & her brother.

        But it is okay for Caroline to form an alliance with Melissa and Kathy and trash Teresa all the time?

        This is where I wish that Teresa knew the right answers to give.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Yep. There are a lot of places where I wish Teresa knew the right answer to give. In addition to the Dina question posed to her by Caroline, I also wish Teresa could have been quick enough to list instances of Caroline’s bullying.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            When Caroline asked Teresa to give her examples of when she was a bully I wish Teresa would have said ” Caroline you weren’t a bully…you were a bitch.”
            I don’t think Caroline bullied her-she is just a unhappy miserable person…she is a bitch. There is no way around it.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Hi Detox, everytime T struggled for a response I was thinking of you, I was known as Queen of the snap as in “oh snap, she shut her down”. T has the neck roll down, now she needs to practice extemporaneous communication. The line of the night IMO goes to JoeGu asking why he is there. That shit was funny. Lisa

          • Sasha says:

            Teresa is not an idiot and answering those questions would not have been in her best interest.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Caroline didn’t bully Teresa…he just tried to B*TCH her to death. When Caroline asked for examples of bullying I wish Teresa would have said ” You weren’t a bully Caroline…you were just a B*TCH”….

            • Eve says:

              I think every scene where Caroline was cutting her off and telling her she is not sincere with her apologies and being a bitch to her…….is bullying.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              I think at the end of the road trip, Caroline bullied Teresa. Joe was the only person really, on Teresa’s side. Kathy delivered the conversation to Caroline and Lauren added her brand of brute force to the occasion. I think that Caroline has proven to be a weak and jealous person that acts out, to hurt other people. Even family members are not safe. IMO.

  13. scorpiosue1102 says:

    I think the funniest comment last night was when Teresa seriously thought that “On Display” was written about her. No, Teresa the narcissist, it was not. Melissa wrote it about her own narcissistic self.

    There is nothing redeemable about ANY of these ladies. I cannot and will not defend any of them because it would really be a waste. They all attack each other and claim they are the only truth tellers.

    Teresa could have come out of this smelling like a rose if she could have been mild mannered and just sat there (like Nene and Kim did that one reunion) but she ended up looking just as bad as the others.

    Peace out:)

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO, Teresa said she thought the song was written about her so that Melissa would say that it was actually written about herself. When I first heard it I thought it was very wishful thinking on Mel’s part because she wanted to be the person in that song….

      • amalfi says:

        Yes! Thought this too. When she “wrote” this song, no one even knew who she was. Her season hadn’t even aired.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I felt like the song was wishful thinking on Melissa’s part too.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I agree. The song should be sung like a song written for a musical. It might work as a coming of age, wishful thinking, upbeat number. I do not like very many musicals so I would not have to hear it very often. JMHO.

    • damnert says:

      Teresa is a pathetic pathological liar. I sincerely believe that she has taken the attitude of Jill Zarin that she is powerful, popular, and Bravo will never replace her crazy ass.

      I think the shows reach the ugly dark place ( Real Housewives Of New York for example) and Andy finally takes control again – Teresa will hopefully go the way of Jill.

      Buhbye Tre…….puhhhhhlezzzzzz :0)

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I’m sure Jill never dreamed she would be let go. Teresa would be blindsided if that happened to her. She does not think it would/could happen to her either. Time will tell….

    Thanks MTH for the Amazing Race recap. I’m sorry Anti-Aviva was eliminated. I was hoping they’d go further. Like you said, seems the first two eliminations were due to things beyond the competitors’ control, bad luck and not particularly skill.

    • trudie says:

      I too am sorry that Anti-Aviva was eliminated; I was hoping it was a non-elimination round.

      I have to give it to the twins. There is no way on God’s green earth I would stick my head into a barrel of fish!

    • melthehound says:

      You’re welcome. I wonder if this is going to be a season of eliminations due to missed opportunities. Last season, Bopper and Mark were late because their vehicle rand out of gas (not their fault).

      Trudie, I wouldn’t either. I guess I forgot to attach the pic of the twin dunking her head into the barrel.

      • trudie says:

        I really thought that when Anti-Aviva was losing that they would make it a non-elimination round just so they could keep her around. I thought she was very inspirational.

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    I remember the gleeful anticipation of Melissa coming on the show – to take Teresa down. Two years later and she hasn’t come close to doing that – but she did show us something else. We saw her need for fame, her willingness to destroy her husband’s family to achieve it and her ability to rewrite her own history. Watching Teresa marginalize Melissa during the reunion taping has been interesting – but Melissa has one more sick card to play….making her husband emotionally abuse his sister yet again.

              I am singing loudly as I sit in front of my laptop. “You’re so vain….” (I am hearing the music in my head as a sing, and I am not even using AUTO-TUNE).

    • mkvalle says:

      I thought you were talking about Teresa…We saw her need for fame, her willingness to destroy her husband’s family to achieve it and her ability to rewrite her own history.

      • RealhouseWifeva says:

        Teresa didn’t follow her family onto the show….the only people who were willing to destroy the family for fame were the gorga’s and Wakile’s.

      • Wait, I’m confused. Teresa destroyed her husband’s family, the Giudices?

        All of them are fame whores, some worse than others. I’m past caring “who destroyed who.” In a way, I hate myself for not caring, but they chose to go on the show & put their lives out there. Can’t imagine doing that, for a fistful of dollars. They get what they deserve, sadly these maroons on not thinking about their children or their parents (especially Teresa & Joe’s parents, the senior Gorgas).

      • Rebecca says:

        No, no, no. Teresa came on as a cupporting member to the Manzo clan. She came off as ditzy and watchable. THEN she got popular as she stood up to Danielle, who was off the rails in season two. She didn’t come on this show to take ANYBODY down. Melissa and Kathy DID.

        • Sasha says:

          She did not stand up to Danielle. She bullied her. I can still picture her now sitting outside the bathroom at the fashion show just waiting for her victim to finish her pee so she could say a friendly hello.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Sasha – i think I am more pro-tre than not these days, but she DID bully Danielle. Not to excuse her but don’t you think that was highly suggested/pushed by the producers? Creating drama; you know? Just like this season’s debacle with stripper-gate. I was never on board with the bullying of Danielle. Still not on board with bullying if a former bully is the victim.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              even if a former bully is the now victim.

            • Sasha says:

              Lainey, I saw it as the table flip moment for the season and it got out of hand once Danielle said her house was in foreclosure. I try to see the bullying of Teresa but I just don’t get it. Believe me I tried.

      • calipam says:

        mkvalle….Totally agree with you. Finally, someone has seen the vulgarity that is Teresa.

  16. Rebecca says:

    “They discussed how Tre got really upset at that Reunion show when the subject of the birth of Tre’s nephew was brought up by Danielle. Tre said she got upset in that moment because it clicked to her that Danielle had been talking to Mel. Mel denies that she was talking to Danielle at that time – and insists that she had to have gotten the info from someone else. Mel has admitted to talking to Danielle, but just not at that time. ”

    She said ON CAMERA that she started speaking to Danielle when she was six months pregnant. Danielle says she has dozens of emails from Melissa and Joe.

    BTW – this is the clip that shows Cliff Robinson’s wife telling Jacqueline she’s not a psychiatrist. Understatement of the year.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Caught in yet ANOTHER LIE. She’s so pathological the way she lies.

      • ATLnNYC09 says:

        Melissa is way beyond a liar. She is a master manipulator. She is way worse than Teresa will ever be. Tre isnt bright enough to be a puppet master. No wonder her and Caro are allies. Cut from the same cloth.

        • PJ says:

          Melissa, Jac too for that matter, remind me of something my Mother told me years ago when I said I was going to the movies with my girlfriends and was really meeting my boyfriend. Mom said ‘If your are going to lie you need to have a really good memory’. Problem is it appears to me that Mel the snake and Jac the wac don’t have very good memories, just sayin…………..

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I can understand Jac not having a good memory because it is probably that she is under the influence when she says many of the things she says.

            Melissa is QUITE the sly and sneaky one, though. I don’t understand why her memory is not better, as she strikes me as having been a MASTER MANIPULATOR for YEARS.

            • PJ says:

              I think Melissa thinks that if she tries to look cute and innocent and sexy no one will question her truthfulness. These tricks must have worked for her in the past. But in the past Melissa played to her family and JoGo now she is playing to a bigger audience than she has in the past. Women see through women, so you can’t play cute when you are really a manipulator and have an audience of women believe you. When you are in your mid 30s that cute act wears thin anyway.

              • lovemamaearth says:

                You can fool some of the people…. I wonder how these people will be when they’re 60 or 70 or 80.

                • Eve says:

                  I still believe Melissa has gotten a pass for how she talked to Danielle and got on the show. I think she acts so wide eyed and innocent hoping viewers will think the best of her but I personally think she would have done anything to get on that show. And what she did was offer Teresa on a silver platter.

  17. PJ says:

    I only watched bits of the reunion but here’s what I think. 1) If Jac spent half the time she spends tweeting at the gym she would be happier and thinner. 2) Jac has only a passing acquaintance with the truth and will say anything to be mean, this should give pause to those who think Jac spoke only the truth. 3) Kathy needs to stop eating her cannoli kits.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Kathy also needs to stop wearing satin if she is going to continue eating her cannoli kits.

      • ATLnNYC09 says:

        Yep. She had a few cannoli’s coming out from under that dress. I know its mean but instead of getting her nose done, maybe she should have gotten a tummy tuck. I mean if your going to get plastic surgery, get it where it does the most good.

        • PJ says:

          I know, I brought the mean stuff up but Kathy is just so difficult to like sitting there with that smirk on her face, I couldn’t help myself. I will voluntarily punish myself by putting myself in a time out this Sunday and forbidding myself to watch part 3 of the reunion—-maybe.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Detox, WTF is up with these housewives & satin. Last time I was exposed to so much sation it was the 80’s & I was disco rollerskating. Lisa

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Beats me, Lisa!! I remember those satin long pants and hot pants people used to wear when roller-skating. The hot pants were usually accompanied by knee-high, striped athletic socks worn with the roller skates.

      • AZGirl says:

        And NOT wear sleeveless dresses. Holy smokes her arms are enormous.

        • PJ says:

          Do they make whole body shape wear?

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            This made me laugh out loud.

            I actually do NOT think Kathy is what I would typically call “overweight” at all (maybe a little chubby or maybe I’d call her voluptuous). I found her to be an attractive woman even before the nose job (Her new nose is too small for her face. It makes her already-huge eyes seem even MORE GIGANTIC. Her eyes are a beautiful color, though).

            Kathy needs a stylist to school her on wearing clothes that highlight her positives and downplay her negatives. I think she tries to wear the same type of stuff Melissa wears, and that does not work for her for the following reasons: 1) she is not nearly as THIN as Melissa; and 2) that type of clothing is not age-appropriate for Kathy, as it is too “young” for her.

            • PJ says:

              It’s really Kathy’s personality I don’t like. I think she is chubby but that wouldn’t bother me, especially for a woman her age, if she were nice and yes if she wore age appropriate and body type appropriate clothing.

  18. RealHousewifeVA says:

    You know, for someone who freaks out and jumps at the chance to attack Teresa for every little thing she says and does, Miss Caroline was awfully quiet during the whole “Jac told me Chris cheated on her” accusations.
    Actions speak louder than words.

    Why do they all throw stones at eachothers’ glasses houses? I

    And love her or hate her, the whole show is about Teresa, her life, her comments, her marriage, her kids…Teresa was right on when she said in her blog (or on wendy williams?) that the rest of the ladies didn’t even have to show up and her and Andy could have made a good show. Now lets see if we can say the same for any of the other women.

    • amalfi says:

      Caroline is wise to stay out of the cheating husbands conversations. She knows her glass house is shiny and vulnerable. Jac is too stupid to remember that about her own glass house.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        And she didn’t defend her brother Chris’ honor either. IMO, none of these Jersey hubbies treat their wives with respect – they all likely cheat and they all likely call them foul names.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Yep. They just put on a show for the cameras, IMO. Joe Giudice refuses to do that. So, of course, he looks like the worst one.

        • ATLnNYC09 says:

          IMO once Joe Giudice stepped on that stage, all bets were off. Its an Italian boys club. They all share stories and know ALL the dirt about one another. Joey Giu was about to start pulling cards from the deck about Chris and Al. Caroline knew that so she got suspiciously quiet.

      • melthehound says:

        Jac is too stupid to remember that about her own glass house.
        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

        Or too drunk.

  19. plainviewsue says:

    Another Oy Vey!!

    I know we’ve said this before, but I truly wish someone (preferably Detox) could talk into a mic in Teresa’s ear and tell her what to say! It is so frustrating, cos the women take advantage of the fact that Teresa gets overwhelmed at times.

    How many times did Melissa rehearse that victim speech? How many times did Kathy & Rosie go over what Rosie had to say? I am sorry; there is no way in hell those kids didn’t know that Rosie was gay before that speech.

    I believe Teresa when she says that Kathy and Rosie weren’t close. All of a sudden now there’s an evil girlfriend. I heard the opposite. I heard that a former girlfriend had a restraining order on Rosie.

    Jac was clearly on about her 3rd xanax at this part of the reunion.

    Whether Juicy cheated or not, I do believe Jac just made lies up on and on. And she’s quoting Danielle now????? You could see how nervous Caro was when Jac went on about Juicy’s cheating. Afraid the truth will come out on Albert?

    Melissa always gets a friggin pass on these reunions. How about her line when she said whoever says they are not fake are the ones who are the most fake??? Doesn’t she always say she isn’t fake???

    I have to say the upcoming preview with Tre & her brother brought tears to my eyes. I blame Melissa for the complete and total break in the family. She never wanted them to heal. Her story of how she she came on the show changes daily.

    Cannot wait for NY reunion tonight.

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

      Teresa definitely needs a reunion coach. Forget about a writer for your blog, get someone to teach you how to defend yourself verbally.

    • PJ says:

      Some women don’t want their husband to be close to his family and In my opinion Melissa is one of these women. I think Melissa will plot and do whatever she can to create and maintain a divide between her husband and his family. But that being said I think JoGo is a willing participant in Melissa’s scheming.

      • ATLnNYC09 says:

        I believe the reason that is is because Joey’s family can see Melissa in a way that he cant. If he is around them long enough, they may be able to pull the certain and reveal the wizard. Then what will Mel do.

      • BuffaLOVE says:

        Seriously! Someone needs to research what Melissa said last season in her blogs vs this season. That line about moving because she doesnt want the kids going to school with their cousins and the crying…that was HORRIBLE! Didnt she say last season when people were saying she didnt really live in that house and it was only for show, didnt she say I have lived here for 2 years and on Christmas morning Joe surprised me with the drawing for my “Dream home”…oh my god my fabulous husband blah blah blah and then this season it went like this, it was tough in the beginning, really tough. I was working with Joe and we couldnt even afford diapers, because we were building our 2+ million $$ home so I could compete with Teresa!! Teresa is a lunatic but I dont think she has too many skeletons in her closet and I think Mel has a ton!! They are all a bunch of liars. I think every single one of them told several lies last night.

        Sorry for the horrid grammar!! 🙂

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I know women like that. For instance, my former secretary’s only daughter-in-law was like that. She only had 2 sons. 1 was married. The other was not.

        She said she was as nice as she could possibly be to her daughter-in-law, but, for YEARS, her daughter-in-law monitored and controlled the time she got to spend with her son. She did not know WHY.

        Once they had a son, which was my former secretary’s ONLY grandson, her daughter-in-law limited my former secretary’s access to HIM as well.

        Eventually, because the daughter-in-law found Jesus or something, she went over to my former secretary’s house and APOLOGIZED for doing that to her. She said she was deeply insecure and wanted all of her husband’s attention to be focused on HER because her OWN Father had abandoned her. She said this carried on over to her son. She thanked my former secretary for never making a big deal about it. She also cried and asked my former secretary to forgive her.

        My former secretary DID forgive her and started to get a lot more visits with her son and her grandson (to her DELIGHT).

    • melthehound says:

      Tuesday Autotune doesn’t get a pass. She forgets that all this crap is on tape and Bravo will play it over and over and over again, and then, again. At least it will be better than rerunning that Stanker woman. I’m glad that Bravo showed that bathroom scene at strippergate, where TA (Tuesday Autotune) said she worked with the guy for a week but as a bartender (the bartender part, I partially believe except I think she was schlepping drinks, not making them) and was a 2nd grade teacher the rest of the time. TA should have remembered that scene when she released her financials showing she was a ‘bartender’ at this place for 8 or 9 months when strippergate first hit the scene. If she was a teacher at the time, why didn’t she release pay proof of that? Short answer, she wasn’t a teacher. She is as fake and conniving as they come. Poison Tarzan Marco really got sucked into the canoli trap with that one.

      • AZGirl says:

        ITA. Mel is going to drain Joey financially and drop him. One thing that seems to never get mentioned is why doesn’t Tre and Joey parents take their side over Teresa? I believe they don’t like Mel at all and see her for what she is a liar and a golddigger.

        • melthehound says:

          I’ve asked that question several times. Never really got an answer though. The Gorga’s showed me everything I needed to know about why they are on the show, Season 3, Episode 1. EVERYTHING they’ve said and done since then, is pure BS.

        • Constance says:

          Melissa has never indicated she would do any of these things you’ve stated.

      • Constance says:

        I haven’t the slightest idea who you are referring to in most of this post? Why do you change people’s names into expressions? I can only think it’s because you wish to denigrate these the women.

        No one has said Melissa wasn’t a teacher, why would you assume she wasn’t.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Melissa actually said she wasn’t a teacher in one of her blogs. She said she was in school to become one, but then got married- pregnant and started to work for Joey.

          If there is confusion, I think it stems from Melissa’s constant contradictions and not from anything here or any where else has said.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Thanks, Sue. I wish I could have been in Teresa’s ear at the Reunion myself.

      I would have done prep work with Teresa BEFORE the actual Reunion, though (I still also would have been speaking to her through an earpiece throughout the Reunion). I also would have loaded Teresa up with some Xanax XR first (for about a week or two beforehand. This is a slower time-released form that does not work automatically like the regular kind of Xanax. It takes time for the body to adjust and feel the effects). This is so she could have remained CALM throughout the experience (and much less reactive and less likely to just immediately speak without thinking).

      For a few weeks beforehand, I would have coached Teresa over and over on a list of responses to each one of their possible attacks. I would have also enlisted the help of a gay man known by the name of “Kid Fury.” He is GREAT. I will post a link to one of his “lessons” at the bottom of this post. Please note that it is NSFW or children. So, view it after work or in a room where children are NOT present.

      I would have, while in her ear during the Reunion, provided Teresa with FIRST responses that were calm and logical.

      If whatever woman continued to attack Teresa, DESPITE her calm and logical answer, I would have then provided Teresa with a response that is what is called “shade” (which is an answer that is very sarcastic and tongue-in-cheek but still gets the point and responsive “dig/insult” across.).

      If the woman CONTINUED attacking despite Teresa’s calm and logical response and subsequent sarcastic “shade,” I would THEN, and only THEN, have Teresa pull out a “BIG GUN” (or 2 or 3) of information which basically called that woman out on her hypocrisy and lowered a BOOM (or TWO or THREE) that would have left the attacking woman’s mouth HANGING OPEN (The audience would sympathize with me, though, because they could see how I was calmly and rationally NOT trying to “go there,” but I had been pushed so hard, I had NO choice but to defend myself. *Shrug*).

      I would teach Teresa how to lower those big BOOMS with a big ol’ SMILE on her face. This is known as “reading” a person. In the Urban Dictionary, to “read” someone means “To tell someone about themselves, mostly used by gay Black men (My gay husband also taught me this term. I have unknowingly been “reading” people since I was a child, though. He HAS helped me hone my skill, though). According to the Online Slang Dictionary, to “read” someone means, “Knowing exactly where another person is ‘coming from’ and telling the person about it, especially in front of a crowd, if any.” Another definition provided in this particular dictionary is as follows: “To lecture someone with a sharply worded barrage of painful truths about themselves. This has been popularized by NY Drag Queens.”

      I would drill it in Teresa’s head that “the read” is ONLY to be used as a LAST RESORT.

      After the “read,” I would teach Teresa that the next step is to IGNORE the attacker (who either probably still has her mouth hanging open or who is now being held back by a bodyguard or two from trying to MURDER her) because she is now DONE and FINISHED with this particular conversation/question/answer to this question whether the attacker wishes to continue it or not.

      I would teach Teresa to indicate that she is now on, “Bitch, BE GONE. You are now being IGNORED by me. I am DONE with this particular conversation” by having her say, at this point, “Alright, Andy, I think this conversation has taken me to a lower level than I really would have liked. Can we please move on to the next topic/question, as I think we are simply wasting the viewers’ time? We owe the BRAVO viewers more than that. I am sure that they have PLENTY of other questions they would like answered. Let’s proceed to those questions. She would be the saying this with another BIG OL’ smile.

      During our practice sessions, in addition to the Xanax XR, I would tell Teresa that I have arranged a party for her IMMEDIATELY following the Reunion with all of her family and friends, including her kids. I would tell her to keep this, and the fact that she will soon be surrounded by people who truly DO love and wish her well in the back of her mind at ALL times throughout the Reunion.

      And I would remind her that, after this Reunion, she can then go back to continuing to live and focus on HER life, while continuing to IGNORE that pack if RABID HYENAS.

      Here is a link providing you with a video of Kid Fury (who, as I stated above, would be my coaching assistant for Teresa) telling Nicki Minaj(who is now feuding on the set of “American Idol” with LEGEND/DIVA, Mariah Carey) EXACTLY what she did wrong during one of their arguments that was taped and (of course) leaked to the press.

      It starts off with him listening to and watching a clip of the argument, where Nicki is screaming like a banshee, and Mariah is remaining calm while addressing her (I should note that Kid Fury WORSHIPS Beyonce. This should explain a statement he makes about her in the video. I should also note that Kid Fury references a hypothetical battle between Nicki Minaj and K-Michelle if K-Michelle were on the Judging Panel. K-Michell is a singer on “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta.” She is also, although I LIKE her, a bit of a HOOD RAT. Hey, I like K-Michelle, but the truth is the truth. *Shrug*).

      Oh, Sue!

      I just wrote a very long and detailed way of how I would have coached and prepped Teresa for the Reunion beforehand and talked in her ear throughout.

      For some reason, it did not post. This happened to one of my comments last night. So, I typed basically the same thing in shorter form that DID post.

      Later, on, when I went back to re-read old and new comments, I noticed that my longer comment had FINALLY posted. In order to avoid being repetitive, I will wait awhile before re-typing my post (because it was pretty good, if I do say so myself. *Shrug*), as I do not want to burden the readers with reading repetitive comments. 😉

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Did I cuss? Is that a rhetorical question to ME (of all people), MTH (Of course I did)? I think I used “bitch”. I try to put in my stars but sometimes forget when I am typing so fast. I must have forgotten to put in some stars.

          I hope NMD edits my post and lets it out of “Post-Jail” the way she did with my post last night about Closet Freak. I put a lot of time and thought into it. *Shrug*

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Ironically, I just typed an answer to you that ALSO did not get posted because my DUMB A*S forgot to put a star in one of my NSFW words in the response.

          Now, in answer to your question as to whether or not I cussed, I am going to break a rule and answer your question with a question: Is that a rhetorical question, MTH? I think I may have used the word b*tch and forgot to put in a star. I do my best to put in stars whenever possible, but I type so fast (in order to get everything out of my A.D.D. brain before it leaves) that I sometimes forget them.

          This answer may be repetitive, as NMD may decide to post it (like my other one) once it gets out of “Post-Jail,” the way she did with my longer post about Closet Freak last night.

          I LOVE you, NMD. I apologize for being careless. Please let my post out of “Post-Jail.” I promise to pay bail money and everything. I’ll even sit under blog arrest with an ankle bracelet and everything. XOXO 😀 (*Waving*)

      • plainviewsue says:

        Where’s the post??? I want to read it!!

        There are so many things I wanted Teresa to say. Its so frustrating when she doesn’t say the right thing & comes off so flustered and says the wrong comment. These women know that’s her downfall, so they take advantage of it.

        If next week’s episode is with the men only, a lot of things won’t ever come up:

        1) Caroline & Jac never get called out on the reading of the book to Gia.
        2) Caroline saying how she puts the lid on Teresa’s problems.
        3) How did Caroline feel learning that Melissa was in contact with her sworn enemy Danielle? That’s something I wish Teresa had asked Caroline herself.
        4) Kathy talking to Teresa in the hot tub so Caroline could hear.
        5) Disgusting comments made by Caroline’s children about Teresa.
        6) Why Lauren quit her job in one day
        7) Why did Melissa tell Joe to say shame on you to his sister
        8) The argument Kim D had w/Joe Gorga about how he doesn’t pay his bills. That was even shown in a clip.

        Cannot wait for NYC tonight. It will be such a relaxing hour……………………

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Alright, Sue,

      I am going to try my best to re-create my earlier post/response that is now in “Post-Jail.” I apologize in advance to everyone if my earlier post pays its bail, gets out and repeats things I may say in this post. Here goes:

      I would have LOVED to have been able to talk Teresa through the Reunion while she wore an earpiece. However, I would have had weeks of prep work with her beforehand. As I will explain further below, I would have employed Kid Fury to be my assistant in coaching Teresa for the Reunion.

      First, I would have supplied Teresa with Xanax XR 2 weeks before the Reunion, as it is a milder, time-released form of Xanax that does not work right away and takes time to affect your mind and body. This would have allowed her to remain CALM AND UNRUFFLED throughout the Reunion.

      During the prep, I would have come up with a list of possible questions from Andy and questions and attacks from the rest of the cast. I would have practiced various answers with her (even though I would still be speaking through an earpiece to her during the Reunion).

      I would advise her to at FIRST (1st) respond to any attack by remaining calm (Xanax XR), SMILING WIDELY and providing a calm and logical answer to the question/attack (provided by ME, of course).

      If the person continued with the same line of questioning/attacking, I would then advise Teresa to move to the SECOND (2nd) line of defense: throwing “shade” in a sly and sarcastic manner. According to the Urban Dictionary, throwing “shade” means “To insult someone or judge someone indirectly or discreetly.” It is used quite often by gay men. My gay husband is the one who taught me the term and helped me to perfect my natural talent for “throwing shade,” as I have been UNKNOWINGLY doing this since I was a small child.

      If the person still chose to continue with the same line of questioning/attacking, I would then advise Teresa to lower the BOOM and resort to the LAST LINE OF DEFENSE: giving the attacking/opposing b*tch a GOOD “READ.”

      According to the Urban Dictionary, “to read” is defined as “to tell someone about themselves, mostly used by gay Black men.” According to the Online Slang Dictionary, “to read” is defined as “To lecture someone with a sharply worded barrage of painful truths about themselves. Popularized by NYC Drag Queens.”

      This is when I would have Teresa tell the attacker a PAINFUL truth about herself and point out her hypocrisy in SUCH a way that the attacker would be momentarily stunned and have her mouth hanging open, before, she realized how she has just been “READ” and then, upon making this realization, tried to MURDER Teresa. I would ensure that bodyguards would be close by Teresa at ALL times.

      Once the attacker/opponent was forced to sit back down and calm down, if she tried AGAIN to go on with the same line of attacking/questioning, I would basically IGNORE her as if she did not exist. My body language and complete failure to look at the attacker/opponent and turn to face ONLY Andy would give off the UNSAID message of, “B*tch, BEGONE!! I am DONE with this CONVERSATION, and I am NOW DONE with YOU.”

      I would then SWEETLY, WITH A BIG OL’ SMILE ON MY FACE, say, “Andy, I think this topic/question has been exhausted. I think the BRAVO viewers deserve more than us just wasting our time on one topic and instead would prefer that we move on to another question, as I am sure they have PLENTY that they have asked to be discussed during this Reunion. Shall we move along now, Andy?”

      During prep time, I would have organized a party for Teresa to be held IMMEDIATELY after the Reunion, where I have invited all of her TRUE family and friends that really DO love her. I would have her products prominently displayed and serve Fabellini throughout. I would keep reminding her that the Reunion will be over SOON, and she can then go to a FABULICIOUS party where she will be surrounded by people that truly love and support her.

      I would also then remind her that, after the Reunion is over, she can also go back to doing what she has been trying her best to do for the past year: IGNORE that PACK OF FOAMING AT THE MOUTH JEALOUS, HATING HYENAS; FOCUS on her OWN IMMEDIATE family; FOCUS on her PARENTS; and FOCUS on her BUSINESSES. I would tell her to NO LONGER give those HATER HYENAS a 2nd thought from now until the end of time.

      I am providing a link to the Assistant Coach I would use when prep’ing Teresa for the Reunion. His name is Kid Fury, and I will tell you a little bit about HIM and this clip. The clip pertains to the feud that is presently going on between Nicki Minaj and LEGEND/DIVA Mariah Carey on “American Idol.” It begins with Kid Fury listening to Nicki Minaj’s TIRADE as Mariah calmly tells her to stop, while also barely acknowledging Nicki Minaj’s presence.

      Kid Fury offers tips for Nicki and tells her exactly how and where she went wrong.

      Kid Fury also WORSHIPS Beyonce. I say this to explain a comment he makes about her in the clip.

      Also, K-Michelle is a singer and a member of the cast of “Love & Hip Hop Atlanta.” I mention HER because Kid Fury references HER in the clip as well. I like K-Michelle, but she is a straight HOOD RAT. Even though I like her, the TRUTH is the TRUTH. *Shrug*

      • ms molly says:

        Detox, I’m loving you more and more. I wonder why Teresa’s handlers didn’t think of that or at least something similar. It’s so simple and Xanax XR is not a dangerous drug and relatively easy to acquire. My guess is that Teresa would probably balk at taking any drugs to calm her down. BTW I love your stories about when you lived in Louisiana, particularly the fire episode.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Why, Good Golly, Ms. Molly!

          I love you more and more RIGHT BACK. I’m glad I could entertain you with my stories. I have TONS (because I come from a HUGE family of MIXED FRUITS AND NUTS that provide me with PLENTY of material. I also have crazy [good crazy NOT scary crazy] friends that provide plenty of material). 😉

          I still live in Louisiana (which is a State that is FILLED with “characters” That provides material too. 😉 ). XOXO

    This whole reunion is about delusions. Teresa is delusional if she thinks Joe isnt a cheater and she is delusional about trying to get out of a lie WITH yet another lie.

    Kathy is delusional if she believes that she isnt jealous of Teresa and didnt ever have issues with Rosie over her lifestyle.

    Melissa is delusional if she thinks that she only went on the show for “opportunities” and she is definitely is delusional if she thinks shes going to be a 34 year old pop star.

    Caroline is delusional if she doesnt think she comes across as a mean, bitter, bully that alienates every one she cant control.

    Jac is delusional if she believes that she doesnt have a serious obsession with her ex-friends (Quoting Danielle last night, seriously Jac?) and she is also delusional if she believes her behavior is normal (compulsive tweeting).

    • amalfi says:

      Did you guys see Bravo rebroadcast on their throwback Sunday with a repeat of their 2004 series “Show Biz Moms and Dads”?

      There was a dad, Duncan Nutter, who moved his family of 9 to NYC so HE could be an actor and no one else wanted to be there. The patient (high school teacher wife who supported the family) explains that is who is … and that when the husband was 32, he started taking gymnastics lessons so he could train for the Olympics.

      Lmao. is it wrong that I thought right then that Duncan Nutter and Melissa Gorga were soul twins?

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      This is SUCH a wonderful and TOTALLY TRUE post, IMO. Delusions abound on that cast.

  21. Donna says:

    I recorded the reunion. When I got up this morning I watched it before having my java. It was interesting to watch. After having my 2nd cup of java I watched it again, I laughed through most of it.

  22. WindyCityWondering says:

    I went into the RHNJ reunions as nothing more than a poo flinging fiasco – my expectation have been met! IMO, Bravo is putting the nails in the coffins and setting up a cast shake up. Since no one wants to film with Teresa then Bravo will likely give her a spin off. The rest of them can pretend they can carry a show but sadly they have become so toxic that watching them or changing the channel will become a no brainer for viewers.

  23. amalfi says:

    Whoever said above (MTH maybe) that the reruns show the truth (I’m paraphrasing) is right on.

    I think the downfall of JZ happened due to Bravo’s propensity to run these episodes over and over and over again.

    The jersey reruns will do in Melissa. Time (and reruns in your face) will tell the truth.

    • amalfi says:

      They are rerunning the Scary Island season of NYC reunion right now as I write this. Word to reality show bravolebrity wanna be’s: your past lies will never completely be swept under the rug.

      I was outraged at her behavior the first time I saw it. But yeah reruns sure don’t help do they.

  24. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I seriously can’t beleive that Andy gave Rosie the Mazel of the season after she came raging out like Barney on bath salts threatening to kill people.

    Why because she ‘came out on tv’? I don’t know anyone who didn’t already know that Rosie was gay not to mention from the more detailed explanation, she came out 10 years ago. IMO that whole scene was contrived not to mention all the other ones of people trying to hook Rosie up. It just came across as exploitation to me.

    • amalfi says:

      Andy has one agenda (and pro-gay rights is a good one) but he has no other values.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I agree.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I find Andy to be too petty and shallow to be a banner waver for any cause. He can not really be trusted to be a man of his word. I also question how he really feels about women . If he is bigoted about one gender, why would I want him defending another. I think he is a bit self serving and I also do not think that he thinks very highly of himself, or he would not be so eager to bring other people down. JMHO.

          • djprincessc says:

            Someone posted this comment on famewhorgas.com and I couldn’t help but agree. I love my gays but its enough already!

            -“Yeah,Andy….Evidently every single gay person on earth should have a gold medal put around their neck for admitting they ARe gay, Why they are even braver than our armed forces. Rosie is a dumb vicious thug, but you give her a place on the reunion. She Is a terrible role model for anybody.”

  25. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Well well well. I see the TreSupporters are out in full force! LOL Well here we go….

    TeresaG is a menace to society and a stupid head! She’s nuts and her husband is a beast! That POS, JizzyJoe, actually tried to sell snake oil and no one was buying it. The other women, her haters if you will, actually FELT SORRY FOR HER!!! They pitied her, standing by her simian husband with cringeworthy delusion. I could almost see her praying he’d remember the words they’d practiced for such a question. Albie… the SpanishPizzaGuy who spoke Italian and Pete was gonna pick up what… the pizza? Those two brainiacs were only fooling themselves. ITA with Tre not wanting her husband’s philandering known, however, when she goes around throwing torpedos at MeGo’s marriage she should be prepared for some fallout. Loved it when JacBeSimple went off after Tre accused Chris of cheating and aired all of Tre’s dirty laundry. Boy that Jac is the definition of ‘FriendlyFire’. LOL I don’t think nor Tre or Jac can hold water and probably gossiped with others re: family secrets, it’s just the mutual contempt that has put it on camera. I’m sure some if not all of the men have a gomad somewhere, but it’s Tre that ‘s the one proclaming to be oversexed, for her hubbie’s mistresses, that her marriage is perfect and makes threats of abandonment if her husband ever cheats. It’s like Dayummmmm girl, we get it. He ‘keeps it real’ as he shits on you and you choose to stay. If you like it, we love it! BTW Your brother has Tarzan who’s full of poison and you like to hump in the grapes and show us your husband’s battery operated cockring. Their mother must be so proud.

    My name is MizAmber and I approve this post. 😉

    • amalfi says:

      T is delusional about Joe. He cheats on her and everyone probably knows it. Calling Mel out on her lies doesnt necessarily make everyone a Tre supporter, but whatever makes your day.
      🙂

    • Trudie says:

      “and a stupid head.” That made me laugh – haven’t heard that since my kids were little. It was the worst thing they could think of to say about each other.

    • RealhouseWifeva says:

      Lol @ stupid head! My 3 year old called my 5 year old that and she came running up to me yelling about how he called her the ‘bad S word”. I freaked out for a moment until I found out the bad S word was ‘stupid’ lol

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        My kids also think that ‘stupid’ is a bad word. Just the other day my 3 year old was saying how she didn’t like Spiderman anymore because he called her ‘stupid’. I asked her about it and she admitted that it was a lie motivated by her fear of cobwebs. I had hoped that it was a little more ambitious and she wanted to work for JJ Jameson at the Daily Bugle and create malicious lies about the Superhero 🙂

        Hahahahaha!

    • Obsessed w RH says:

      Thank you so much Amber!!! I’m usually the one leading the anti-tre brigade so it is nice to have someone else do it!!! Sadly I know people think Jac was spewing untruths but it is my opinion that the allegations she is mentioning are true and she has amassed this knowledge over the years of friendship and now she is a woman scorned and all of the secrets are pouring out. Teresa loves the limelight, not that they all don’t but can we all see that T has alienated every person in her life since she has come on the show? Her “friends” are her paid employees. I’m sorry but it isn’t because anyone is jealous of Ts success. They’ve all been able to make their own way and I’m sorry but Teresa creating a cookbook out of her mothers recipes is not her own work, it’s plagiarism but that’s another topic. There have been many housewives who have been successful. Let’s look at the obvious, Bethenny. She has been uber successful and I do not believee she has alienated any of her friends with her success. She has friends from 20 years ago meanwhile with Teresa’s success she has lost all of her friends. I personally think it is because Teresa wants to be surrounded by yes men not friends who actually give your their honest opinion and when Ts friends gave her their honest opinion they suddenly were against her. In my opinion I think Wendy Williams hit the nail on the head last night on WWhL, Teresa loves the spotlight and needs to get off of reality tv because she will end up truly alone.

    • PJ says:

      This is just an observation and not meant to offend you, but why do you feel the need to start your comment with:” Well well well. I see the TreSupporters are out in full force!” ?

      I don’t really see comments from Teresa supporters starting like that. People have different opinions and I think different opinions are welcome here.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I am NOT a TreSupporter. I am a TreHUGGER and a TreKOOL-AID drinker (These are LIES. I would never mess up my outfit by hugging a darned tree. I would also never drink Kool-Aid).

        • PJ says:

          Well I see the Kool Aid haters are out in full force today. I never did like Kool Aid myself.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            No one should hate on KoolAid. I mean it’s cheap and refreshing! LOL

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              LOL. It was also the Evans’ family drink of choice on “Good Times.” They always offered it to guests in their home too. My Mom used to buy Kool-Aid all the time as I was growing up. Once I moved UP in the world, I forgot my “roots” and decided to be “high-siddity” and NEVER allow KOOL-AID to ever touch my lips again!

              I have become a mixed-juice-drink SNOB!

              • PJ says:

                LOL. My parents always bought Kool Aid too. Everyone did back in the day!

                  I WISH I would have had some purple DRANK before I watched last night’s Reunion. It would probably have made it a LOT more enjoyable.

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                My Dad loved TANG. It was the only powdered drink we had in the house when I was a kid. I preferred Pepsi but when I went to diet it became DCoke or CokeZero. Don’t like DPepsi. Like Detox does *shrug* LOL

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  We had TANG too, but that was only a special treat. I bet that’s because it was probably more expensive than Kool-Aid. *Shrug*. I HATE Pepsi. I am STRICTLY a Diet Coke or Coke Zero drinker.

          Detox, Crystal light!!! 🙂

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Not offended at all. Just didn’t see any posts supporting MeGo or anyone else for that matter. Also since when isn’t it known that the blog has become overwhelmingly Pro-Tre? Usually when there is a post that doesn’t pay homage or is negative towards Tre there is a whirlwind of activity as posters give their dissenting opinions. Furthermore, although many would disagree, the tone of some responses have ”intimidated’, ‘insulted’ or ‘disgusted’ SOME Non-Tre fans to the point where the just won’t comment. LOL I’m not one of them. Finally, I just wanted to start it that way and don’t need to follow anyone’s lead as I post my opinions. And of course I KNOW i’m welcomed here! Everyone is.

        • PJ says:

          No one asked you to follow their lead.
          There may be a reason that no one (although I wouldn’t really say no one, I would probably say there is less support) is supporting Melissa here or the others.
          I have to disagree that people who don’t like Teresa were insulted here or intimidated. I don’t believe that at all, the way I see it is that they could dish it out but couldn’t take it. I have seen downright offensive comments left by Teresa haters and directed at those who don’t hate her. In the past I have felt that those who don’t like Teresa were very insulting to anyone who supported or at least didn’t hate Teresa.

          • melthehound says:

              I am taking my ball and going home.

              I will be back in, oh, about the few seconds it takes for this comment to post.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            You asked why I posted that way, contray to Pro-Tre fans. Everyone can’t post like you nor should they want to. There is a reason why there is less MeGo support on the blog. They don’t feel welcome. For you to believe otherwise is your option. I’ve read the posts of those who feel overwhelmed with the negative responses to their posts. As for offensive comments i’ve seen hundreds if not thousands, by this reunion time, of MeGo, Kat, Jac, Carolwhine (oops) & Lauren posted here. Really disgusting outbursts of I would think gentlemen and ladies in the real world. This is a blog, however, and one can post as they desire. You are correct, that many could dish it and can’t take it in return but when the numbers are against you and you’re bombarded with insulting and dismissive posts many chose to leave. I personally don’t give a rat’s ass who loves Teresa so much that they would invest so much energy into defending her. I like MeGo but I don’t feel the need to go after every LAST post as if it’s my job to be her defender. The bitch is living the good life, counting her money and not even acknowledging Lynn’s passing like a decent human being. She’ll be alright! I certainly wouldn’t insult anyone who had a differing opinion as that, color and choices is what makes this country great.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            lost a post

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            You asked why I posted differently from TreFans. Everyone can’t post like you nor should they. As for there being a lack of MeGo supporters it’s because SOME don’t feel comfortable having to defend their every post or felt insulted by the responses or questioning by other posters. For you to believe that it’s all in the MeGo supporters imagination is a fallacy. This blog is cyclical. Depending on whose posting the support waivers from one HW to another, especially under Lynn’s watch. She definitely allowed contrary opinions so much that many decided to chastize her because of her disdain for Tre. And she was the Owner/Blogger! As for the negative offensive comments against Tre, I can easily say there has been hundreds if not thousands of cruel, disgusting comments against MeGo, Kat, Jac, Carolinbacker (oops) and Lauren from i’m assuming gentlemen and ladies in our real society. Why so serious when it’s done to Tre? Oh because you like her, but believe me, she’s no better than anyone of them or any other HW. She can get it too! So in conclusion, while some may be scared to post, fearing the TreMob + 10, LMAO, i’ll continue to post it like I want when I want.

            • PJ says:

              I’m not going to debate you or argue with you. I don’t think the hostility is necessary because no one asked you to not post, not even the TreMob + 10 (which BTW is insulting–but I’ll let it go). I asked you a question and you said you didn’t take offense, but clearly you did. We don’t agree regarding NJ and probably never will. Maybe we agree about some other things but not this.

        • RealHousewifeVA says:

          Believe me, we know the blog is overwhelmingly Pro-Tre because you Pro-Mel people constantly have to point it out. 🙂

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            At the beginning of season 3 it wasn’t. (Things change, which is why I hope that no one takes these discussions to heart).
            For me it’s not that I am pro-Teresa but after watching the baptism brawl cause by JoeGo and Melissa and her family, I was revolted by them.
            Not to mention, it seems like ALL of them are guilty of the shady and fraudulent business dealings which I find so offensive in Teresa. In that aspect, it’s a wash.

            • PJ says:

              I hate the finger pointing and the ‘we good Teresa bad’ stuff. I liked Teresa the first season, started not to like her the second and was fully prepared to not like her anymore until I saw what the rest of them were capable of. When I saw them obsessing over Danielle, who they didn’t film with anymore, I thought they were off balance but still didn’t get the whole picture. When I saw that a pattern was being repeated this season and all the hypocrisy I thought wait a minute. When I saw Mel and JoGo staging scenes clearly designed to make Teresa look bad, and Kathy’s holier than thou attitude I was done. I began to realize that maybe Teresa wasn’t as bad as they were painting her. i don’t think I’m alone in this.

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                So staged scenes and holier than thou attitudes bother you, but a gutteral, animalistic neanderthal raging thru a restaurant to ‘catch’, ‘talk to’ Danielle is okay because she just wanted to say “hi”, while she was stalking her intended victim. Yep, I’m sure you’re not alone.

                • PJ says:

                  I’m not taking the bait, sorry. I feel the way I feel you feel the way you feel. I’ll leave it at that.

              • kit9 says:

                Nobody has to stage anything to make Teresa look horrible. She does that all on her own. And, there the only one staging scenes is Teresa, most lately she and her henchwoman introducing Baldy for the purposes of humiliating Melissa. And, you can’t blame the whole confirmation meltdown on the Gorgas. Huge part of the blame lies with Juicy. And, even if you completely, and unfairly, blame the whole thing on the Gorga’s, that doesn’t come close to the full mountain of vile things Teresa has done. Not. Even. Close.

        • ATLnNYC09 says:

          Ive said it before so I will restate:

          Teresa is a liar. So is Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jacqueline.
          Teresa is narcissistic and full of herself. So is Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jacqueline.
          Teresa has major financial issues that caused her to do questionable things. So is Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jacqueline.
          Teresa is addicted to fame. So is Melissa, Kathy, Caroline and Jacqueline.

          Whats the difference between her and the others?
          Shes the only one that has to deal with 4 other women knit picking at every single mistake she makes to deflect from themselves.
          Shes the only one that is bullied and berate from 4 other women, 2 she is related to by blood or marriage.
          Shes the only one who’s family went out of their way to go on a show to witness and participate in her demise.
          Shes the only one the other women are jealous of to the point of obsession, lies and manipulation.

          I dont absolve her of her faults. I also dont overlook the faults of the others. If she isnt above the fray, then neither are they. Im not Pro Tre more than im Pro Balance.

              Thanks Detox. It kind of bothers me when people that can see the TRUTH are referred to as Pro Tre, Tre Huggers, etc. Im not a fan of that chick like that. Im sorry but im not. I only really stan for NeNe and even that has its limits. This is simply how I see the situation from my POV. Im not Pro Tre. Im a grown woman and ive never really been the fan type.

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                Hi ATL. Great post and i’m not trying to start with you but I had a thought… TRUTH is different for everyone. What you see is not what others may see. I readily admit my POV differs from many here but NO ONE can absolutely say their opinion is the TRUTH. At this point in the game Tre, MeGo, Kat, Jac and Caro probably believe the BS they’re ‘ratchetly’ selling. No one knows what’s in the pot but the spoon that stirs it.

                • ATLnNYC09 says:

                  I agree Amber and you are right. I meant truth from the perspective that I see it.

                    The Truth is that very few of us know THE TRUTH. We know what we see. We know what we’re shown. We make speculations. We form opinions. We share them with each other. Some of us are called names for our opinions. Some of us protest being called names. Some say I can call you names because you don’t agree with me and labelling you or calling you names makes me feel more powerful on a board where I feel like a minority. Others say, you probably think this song is about you…But do any of us really know the truth? I don’t think so. Can we even the HANDLE truth!! I think we can. In the meantime, speak your truth, but don’t call people names, it doesn’t help to promote your truth. It discredits you and your truth. Unless of course, your goal is not to seek and share the truth, but to incite tempers, to get attention…if that is the case, then carry on. As you were, so to speak.

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      I apologize if that came off as a scolding…Or an Aviva’ing. Not my intention at all. I’m anti-scolding.

          “Usually when there is a post that doesn’t pay homage or is negative towards Tre there is a whirlwind of activity as posters give their dissenting opinions. ”

          I thought that was the point of the blog – the ability to give dissenting opinions. I have no horse in this race. I think they are all stupid heads.

        • Powell says:

          Amber I’m not pro-Tre or pro-anyone. They all make ne sick w/their lies. T has been wrong about so much but what I don’t like is that they supposedly hate T for doing nags, writing in a cookbook that Caroline isn’t 100% Italian and T doesn’t want her kids to own a stripper carwash. The truth is they hate T for her success. Their supposed reasons don’t mean a hill of beans. And let’s face it if stupid Joe didn’t commitfraud against his biz partnner didn’t steal from their renters, didn’t feel he didn’t have to pay outstanding debts, didn’t commit ID fraud and didn’t overextended themselves T wouldn’t have done all her biz ventures. T would have been content at home w/her girls spending money shopping everyday and buying those god awful bows she puts. in her girls hair.

    • Sasha says:

      Jac dropped knowledge last night.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Jac dropped b*llsh*t last night. The same way she constantly drops b*llsh*t on Twitter. Also, Jac is not well. I think she hears voices. ALL of those women are crazy in some form or fashion; however, I think Jac’s crazy is the kind that requires a few weeks (if not MONTHS) of INPATIENT treatment at a psychiatric facility so she can be well enough to take care of Nicholas, who really needs her. JMHO.

        • Sasha says:

          Some call it bull and others call it knowledge. Call me crazy but I believe every single word of it and I wanted her to keep going. Hell, if Teresa had something on her she should have put it out there too. I mean it did turn into a mini free for all. If Jac is crazy and requires treatment at a facility then she’d better take Teresa with her so they can help her with grasping reality.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Teresa is still functional enough to be working her butt off instead of obsessing over her cast mates and former friends on Twitter.

            So what if Teresa wants to be in denial about her marriage! How many other women tell lies to themselves about their husbands because they are not quite ready to face the truth about him for whatever reason (PLENTY. I know quite a few, and they happen to be sane and productive. They’re just not ready, for whatever reason, to let the relationship go yet. BTW, I think Teresa KNOWS Joe cheats. Just like I think Caroline knows Albert cheats and Chris has probably cheated on Jac in the past. They choose to put it in the back of their mind for their own reasons. *Shrug*).

            Teresa realizes that her relationships with these women are over, and she has done the SANE thing and MOVED ON. Jac, on the other hand, still CANNOT keep Teresa’s name out of her CRAZY mouth.

            I also think Jac’s present friends better pay attention to the way Jac reveals things told to her by a friend in confidence during the friendship. This is breaking one of the MAJOR rules of “The Girlfriend Code.” Jac has been doing that to Teresa for about a year now. Teresa finally fought back a little bit and revealed a few of Jac’s secrets. Jac drew “first blood” with that. So what if she gets a little payback! It is well-deserved. JMHO.

            • Sasha says:

              I don’t think they obsess half as much as some would like to believe but it makes a good story though.

              I won’t waste time speculating on who is cheating on who. I watch the show and take my opinion from that. Jac, Caroline, Mel, Kathy and their spouses all seem happy with each other. You know I love a cute Gorga family scene. Warms my heart.

              I honestly doubt that Teresa sticks to the rules of the code herself.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Outside of the Reunion, Teresa stuck to the rules of the Girlfriend Code (and not betraying a former friend’s confidence) when it came to a NATIONAL audience, unlike JacDaniels.

                And just like you “honestly doubt” Teresa sticks to those rules, without any solid proof that she does NOT, I also doubt everything that is simply fed to me on my t.v. screen to fit a storyline crafted by BRAVO’s agenda.

                This is also the same reason I doubt that Joe Giudice is the ONLY cheater in THAT bunch.

                • Sasha says:

                  Teresa doesn’t follow any rules or codes and I get that from watching with these pretty browns. I do have a special little place in my heart for her though.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        A drink perhaps SGMargarita, RamonaPinot, Tre’s Fabellini, Nene’s Moscato, Kathy’s RedVelvetCosmo or MeGo’s VoliVodka.

        • RealHousewifeVA says:

          I’m impressed, you have your Housewives Alcoholic drinks down! I didn’t even know Melissa had a drink, too! I did read that Kim Z is also coming out with a Moscato drink

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Well, that’s just not right,…everybody knows Kim Z is a chardonnay girl!

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I know. I wonder what Kim is going to call her drink. Nene also has a Moscato out. I bet Nene, when she heard Kim was coming out with a competing Moscato, said, “Girl….DAT’S a LOWDOWN MONKEY wit’ a WIG on…..!”

              I hope Kim has a contest for her fans to name her Moscato the way Teresa did for her haircare line. I vote for the following:

              TRASHBOX HOOKER Moscato
              GOLDDIGGER Moscato
              CLOSE YA LEGS TO MARRIED MEN Moscato
              MONKEY WIT’ A WIG Moscato
              USER OF PEOPLE Moscato
              I DON’T PAY MY BILLS Moscato.

              I’m sure I’ll think of more.

  29. designernailsdiana says:

    Seriously, I don’t think some people saw the same show I saw last night.
    If someone is looking to hate someone(s) then all they need to do is focus on looking for the negative stuff being said.
    I’ve tried to view the show with a panoramic view. I’m looking at all of them and not one housewife is perfect, as was said last night.
    Each woman has her own issues and a business to promote. They all want air time. DUH that’s how they make their money along with tweets and webpage hits. I can’t blame them for wanting to make money. We all would like our tweets and websites to pay off. If every Retweet you sent gave you a penny would you constantly Retweet? I would!!
    My point is they came to RHONJ with an agenda to make money and get some celebrity. I’m sure they weren’t completely ready for what the fame would do to their lives and their families. Jealousy comes in many forms, but in the end it can eat a person alive and lead to bad decisions.
    The Housewives are NOT perfect, but I’ll accept them as they are. HOWEVER, I don’t have to believe the lies they spew nor follow their negativity. I’m not willing to compromise my own dignity nor my happiness to help them make money.
    Every one of us here is allowed to have their own opinion. But be gentle and kind-hearted as we respond to each other. There’s no need to put someone down nor pick them apart because they like someone you don’t like.
    Once RHONY is done with their reunion I’m done with the RHO franchises. I’m enjoying new programs like Revolution and the returning Once Upon a Time and Revenge.
    I’m struggling with getting into 666 Park Ave.
    Blessings,
    Diana

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Great post and beautiful baby in your avatar. I agree that the differing opinions do get testy, but we should all remember these women are famewhores who sold their souls to the devil and are laughing all the way to the bank. While i’ll still watch RHONJ, i’m seriously thinking about boycotting RHOC. Can’t take the hate which spews from Tamra these past seasons and her getting a contract will only encourage her to continue the behaviour.

    • Powell says:

      Hey Miss Diana,

      I have never begrudged them making money. Hey I’m the 1st to say they need to make it while they have their 15 minutes. Besides Kandi already being successful, powerful & making money in the music biz way before there was even a Bravo Bethenny & now NeNe have parlayed their talents. As far a Twitter I’ve seen bad mouthing T & that’s not making them money, nor is Heather, Gretchen & Tamra constantly bashing Alexis. So hey make music, make drinks, write books, act, have clothing lines, but don’t destroy your family & friends and degrade yourself to do it.

  30. AZGirl says:

    Watching the previews on the Bravo site. Is that Kim D I see walking onto the set? Andy asks someone to clear up that Teresa did not have anything to do with the set up?

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Kim D needs to get rid of those extensions. Who in the heck told her they looked good? Obviously not a TRUE friend.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Detox, that is the truth. I went very blond & my dearest friend said after several months your hair looks like a chicken. I was getting touch ups every 3 weeks from dark roots, it really was ridiculous. When asked why I went back to dark I said because only one person loved me enough to tell me I made a lousy blond. My mom, daughter & hubs were mouth hung open shocked, they were cold busted, they knew they should have said something! Then I busted out laughing in their face, cuz I’m F’ed up like that.
        My daughter went through an extension phase & she looked as foolish as Kim D. Trust me, I did tell her for the same reason I told her we are not going to American Idol auditions, delusion with family support….not a good combo. I thought the worst extensions I had ever seen were on Victoria Gotti, KimD is a close second. You have been so funny today, thanks Lisa

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Fortunately (or perhaps UNFORTUNATELY), I have SEVERAL friends and family members who do not even HESITATE to tell me when I look like sh*t, look ridiculous, or am acting like an IDIOT!

          Sometimes this bothers me, but I know it is for my own benefit and comes from a place of LOVE (no matter how harshly stated).

          For instance, I was once going somewhere a little fancy with my gay husband. If I do say so myself, my DRESS was bada*s; my SHOES were KILLER; my hair was LAID (Translation: looked like a million bucks); my makeup was ON POINT; my perfume was enchanting; and I had a WRAP tied around my shoulders in what I thought was a STYLISH way (It was kinda chilly in New Orleans at that time. The wrap was to keep me warm in the event it got chillier as the night wore on).

          My gay husband walks in, takes ONE look at me and IMMEDIATELY says, “Ummmmm, WTF do you have wrapped around your shoulders?”

          I said, “My wrap for chilly weather. What? You don’t like it?”

          His response, “B*tch, H*ll NO!! And the way you have it tied into that sort of ‘bow’ is RIDICULOUS!! You look like a g*d*mned PRESENT!! Take that monstrosity off IMMEDIATELY, or I will not take you ANYWHERE.”

          I put on my long, fancy coat, and we had a magical night. *Shrug*

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Hahahahaha, your gay husband will tell you when you are looking a hot a** mess when your mirror told you, go on with your badself you look FAF (fly as phuck)! I have spent alot of time in the quarter, seen “fashion” that gave me bad dreams. I can only imagine what that bow looked like to push him over the edge. In my family you need a thick skin from the brutal honesty, the blond hair left them speechless because I was lovin it & convinced I was FAF. Delusion with family support…..not a good combo 🙂

  31. contessa says:

    I just had a thought today about Jaq…rumors are Chris married her because she was pregnant, and he was dating her while engaged to Dina’s close friend. I think that is one of the reasons Dina was never really close to Jaq, and she had a difficult time being accepted into the family (like punching Caroline for the babysitting issue with Chris). I think in the beginning Jaq and Ash had a hard road to travel for the Manzo family acceptance. I think they all looked down on her for going with Chris, while he was engaged, for getting pregnant before marriage, and for bringing in a child into the marriage (against their traditional values). I think when Dina and Caro’s relationship went down the tubes, she got closer to Jaq. However Jaq didn’t help matters when she tweeted things about the holidays and Dina/Caro, etc…Do you all remember the last time Caro met with Danielle – it was like the second coming for the Godfather – give me a break and the entire family awaiting her arrival in the restaurant with news of the peace accord – LOL. I don’t blame Danielle for not backing down, I wouldn’t have either, as there is no excuse for Ashlee’s violence. Danielle is a bit unstable, but it is funny that everything she claimed/said is true. I have no doubt she has much more dirt on Jaq and has not spilled same – interesting. The H that I think cheats is chris…can you imagine being married to a twitter obsessed alcoholic, that cries all the time, that he sees as constantly vulnerable, and now has to deal with his baby’s autism. I don’t think he realized who he married at the beginning, but I have no doubt that home is “Kray Kraya” on the inside. Chris is more polished that the rest of the guys and would probably be much smoother in his cheating style. This is an observation of what i think is going on in their household.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Chris must have a hard road to travel if we can imagine Jac’s histrionics about Tre being multiplied as it is NOW a SERIOUS ISSUE that AFFECTS HER! Although Men/Women don’t need excuses to cheat, many marriages of parents with special needs children dissolve. I wish ALL the marriages luck but especially for these two who have a long road ahead.

    • Contessa, did you read about the lawsuit against Chris & Jax , plus other family members from their last apparel company? (Jax is specifically named in it) I think Chris has to keep her happy, or she could do major damage against him in regards to the $55 million lawsuit. It’s on chirpingtwit, a link was posted here a couple of blogs back. So the stress in the Laurita household must be thru the roof.

      • PJ says:

        Wow! that makes Tre and Joe’s money problems seem like small change.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        55 million?!? I thought it was 8!

      • contessa says:

        Hi Blue, Yes I read about the lawsuit sometime ago and reread same again. I was shocked at how much money they used personally. Jaq and Chris live in a glass house. I don’t think BLK is doing all that well, he has a sick child, a cray-cray weak wife that cries or drinks at the drop of a hat, and who sits on a computer all day twittering. This is a receipe for disaster. Finances, and special needs children have tremendous effects on a couple and they should focus on their priorities instead of throwing stones. I seriously think Jaq lives in an alternate society – she is truly delusional in her reality. I hate cry-baby women when there is a child that needs the attention of a strong, fierce and loving mother. That to me is unforgiveable, all the other stuff is simple BS.

    • Constance says:

      Rumors? Anyone on the internet can pretend to know these women and claim personal knowledge of their lives. There are many instances of people doing this.

      Do you have some knowledge that Jac is an alcoholic as you claim? If not, it seems unkind to make claims like this

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Contessa you make some great points and gave me lots of things to ponder.

Not surprised because you have always been a very kind person on this blog. Very kind. 🙂

  32. mkvalle says:

    Watching all the crazy NJ ladies with all their real or made up drama is quite entertaining and frustrating. Reading the comments on this blog is the same experience for me, entertaining and frustrating. It’s like getting two shows for one!

  33. Kat from Ohio says:

    my theory about the joe/teresa thing. i mean, i know this never gets talked about anymore, but i think it’s pretty likely that juicy has mob connections. whether he just has dealings with them or is a full on member… the fact that he’s involved in so much construction and leasing is suspect ,as is his inability to actually define what his job is. think of all the crazy amounts of cash (the furniture scene season 1). the expensive jewelry splurges. i think it makes sense–and not just because they’re italian. i also think the manzos are connected too.

    but in that old-school or even mob friendly environment, it’s pretty much both accepted and expected that a husband will have meaningless, sexual affairs. the wife knows and tolerates it as long as he provides well for the family. the husband probably really does love his wife and sees himself as “a family man” because he doesn’t have emotional affairs and is responsible for shielding the wife and family from certain matters (financial, job-related, etc). i don’t know if this is true for the giudices, but i think that if he does cheat, she probably knows, but is too inarticulate/nervous about how the public would react to admit that they have a certain unconventional arrangement.

    • Kat….yup!!! He’s not the only one with ties/whatever.

      This is why Juicy could drive for TEN years without a license in NJ. Al’s position on the water board. It goes on and on.

      Landscaping/construction/restaurants/mob ties. just sayin’

  34. princesspindy says:

    Ok, first of all, it’s about me, thank you very much!!
    I was thinking as I was reading about Tre’s inability to express herself……they should have let her make all her comments in Italian and subtitled it. I just can picture her and juicy having their 1 to 2 hour long fights all in Italian. And I bet that Tre has NOOOOO probleme’ expressing herself….just a thought.

    And as far as Melissa goes, I thought that they were selling the house because they couldn’t afford it?

    Kathy, it’s the hair more than the face, change the hair back!

    Rosie, she is not a good liar.

    Joey (juicy) ***disclaimer**** since he is not my husband**** There is something charming about him
    please don’t throw stones, but his simple mindedness is amusing and he said something last night that made me once again say “Joe Guidice, the voice of reason” I can’t remember what it was cuz I only watched twice, lol!

    • lol Pindy of course it’s all about you! Just wait for the next episode. Then will know who the “real” boss is….it might be Juicy. Or is it Al?

      • princesspindy says:

        Is Al on the show?? I don’t remember seeing him. He seems to smart/sly/sneaking/over it to be on the reunion….

        • Yes he is too smart to appear on the reunion. I’m just wondering who has the bigger mob ties, Juicy or Al. Remember Caroline saying to Juicy “my husband can destroy you” ?? lol. And don’t forget….Kim D “runs with the Big Boys.”

          • princesspindy says:

            Yeah, I didn’t think he would be on, that would be something. The thing is any numbskull can shoot a gun, ya knows. So no matters whos gots more, ya knows, pull, it don’t take no genuis to f someones up!

            • and Rosie will cut your *effing tongue out….these people are a tad scary!

              • princesspindy says:

                I know right?! I mean “Seriously, who does that?” **said in my best Valley voice**

                • Pindy…..what goes on in the town I live in is un-freaking believable. For example, there is a guy who was a big developer. Paid off everybody to get his deals approved by mayors/planning boards/city councils/inspectors etc. Told them how to bury the money. Youse know, cuz you can’t put those cannolis in the bank. Same guy had a string of strip joints/clubs whatever. So he had his “real” fambly. Then another “fambly” nearby. And a long time girlfriend. Plus he hit on the dancers in the clubs. Finally he did go to prison.

                  I think the feds are going to get Juicy for tax evasion, eventually. Chris is going to spend a long time defending himself in the $55 million lawsuit he’s got against him. If he gets charged with some of the stuff in that lawsuit, he’ll be going to jail too. On Chirping Twit’s site, saw the link her a couple of blogs back. SMDH, and these people thought going on a reality show was a GOOD idea??

    • Obsessed w RH says:

      Actually Teresa can’t even speak Italian. What you hear her speak is a dialect and she wasn’t even able to formulate a phrase let alone a sentence as seen when they went to Italy. She can’t speak either language but as a born and raised Italian I can tell you she 100% can’t speak Italian.

    Yesterday Andy asked on Facebook what questions he should ask JZ when she appears on WWHL. There was an astounding (ie more than one) number of posts to bring her back.

    I suggested he ask her what possessed her to agree to appear on WWHL now that she no longer is employed by Bravo. Her 15 minutes are up. I also pointed out to Andy that I would not be watching a show she is on, and suggested that the REAL question is how his sponsors feel about him having a guest that causes viewers to not watch.

    Was I too mean? 🙂

    Hey hope everyone is having a good day.

    Detox: How are you feeling? I caught up on the blogs and I saw you talk about the saying “crazy as a road lizard” My mom is the only one I have ever heard use that phrase and I always wondered where it came from. In the 70’s in her married days she lived in New Orleans and Mississippi so maybe that’s the connection if it comes from that area.

    I’ve learned some good stuff on this blog about how to improve myself regarding family. See I have some really bad people in my family and I have no problem saying I don’t like them. I don’t go around town talking about what they do but if the subject of family comes up I have NO PROBLEM saying I don’t like mines and would never go out of my way to visit them (it is such a strange phenomenon to me to see people actually pay to and use their vacation time to see family and are excited about it, cause that has never been my idea of a good time) and explain that they are liars/criminals/all around losers and if someone told me that about them, I wouldn’t be upset, and I’d probably join right in on the topic cause I see that as truth. BUT I guess I have been handling that all wrong. Maybe people think less of me for having that attitude. I should have a different attitude about my family and if I can’t I guess I should just keep it to myself. Since this blog is relatively anonymous, I’ll share an example of how I just don’t want to be around them. My uncle used to beat his girlfriend and he beat her so bad she is now partially paralyzed. He still stayed with her and does his version of taking care of her and after all these years, has THE NERVE to complain about having to take care of her. That is just ONE of MANY examples from most all of the relatives I know. I believe I shouldn’t be around them but perhaps I should work on the extreme dislike and disgust I have for them when talking about them with people.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Gosh, I can’t say I blame you for not being around the type of people you described.

      I think when most people (or the people I know) complain about family it’s smaller scale stuff like how my MIL always seem to want to spend every weekend with her and tries to make my husband feel guilty if we make other plans that don’t include her.

      • stellastars21 says:

        I know that what my family does is serious stuff but I want to be better about how I react and talk about them for my own sanity and also I think it is an opportunity to grow as a person. I hold a lot of anger about them and it really only makes me feel bad. I’m sure they couldn’t care less so I need to stop how I behave toward them.

      Hi, Stella, (*Waving*)

      Thank you so much for asking how I’m feeling. I SEEM to be having a 2-day “run” of very little coughing (Knock Wood), and my rib no longer hurts as much. It gives me a little pain in the morning, or if the weather changes. But that’s it. I still am more tired than usual and occasionally still suffer with the shortness of breath. I’m just praying, pacing myself and hoping God has it in his plans for me to heal fully.

      Other than that, my FATHER is driving me and my mother ABSOLUTELY INSANE. He is very macho and handles his business like A BOSS when it comes to financial matters and being a provider and ensuring that their house, yard, landscaping and cars look like a million bucks.

      BUT….inside the house he acts like a KING on a damned throne who must be catered to at ALL times and have his any and every wish and/or desire granted ON DEMAND. He has his 2nd cataract surgery (on the other eye) tomorrow morning.

      My Mom and I have decided we are going to throw our own little party when he brings his a*s back to work!!! She said she is going to get some type of job, even though she was forced to go on disability due to medical conditions, when he retires because being around him all the time will KILL her!

      How are YOU doing, Stella?

      And, yes, people in New Orleans always used the term “crazy as a road lizard”! That is where I picked up the term (and likely where your Mom picked it up too). 😀

      • stellastars21 says:

        I’m glad you are having relief and I hope it continues to get better. That’s really funny about your dad. My mom always tells me that men are like this at home and I always think can they really be that bad, and she tells me that when I get married I’ll find out. lol.

        I’m doing pretty good. I’m having some issues with my mom. She isn’t really talking to me cause I lost it when I felt she was being really mean for no reason and I yelled at her that I was over it and afterwards I apologized. But she said that there is no apology for that and she doesn’t know when she will think of me the same. It makes for some lonely time at home but I’m trying to focus on the positive and that is that my new relationship is going well. Also I am feeling better physically with these surgical epidurals I’ve been getting. I’ll just have to wait till my mom can feel better about me.

        Ok I’m glad I finally found the origin of that saying lol. She has some others that I can’t think of right now that I wonder if they come from that area too.

        • Powell says:

          Stella I’m sorry about you and your mom. As daughters we always have ups and downs w/our moms. It’ll get better. I’m glad your doing better. Surgical epidurals, ouch. But I hope it’s helping.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Wow Stella. I’m sorry and best of luck. Grudges are a waste of time and energy imo.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’m sorry about your Mom, Stella. The relationship between Mothers and Daughters can sometimes be complicated and difficult. I have been there, and I can relate (My Mom and I have had arguments where we stopped speaking to each other more than once. Same thing with my Dad. The love is always there. The communication is not always there, though). Just give it up to God and give it time.

          I am happy your new relationship is going well, though. You GO, Girl! 😉

          And I am glad you are feeling better physically. XOXO Keep the faith and Keep ya head up when it comes to your Mom.

          • stellastars21 says:

            Thanks everyone for those kind words. I’ll try to stay positive and hopefully everything will turn out good.

      • Powell says:

        Detox I’m happy you and your parents a fairing much better. I tell you, you are so darn funny. You must be a laugh a minute w/your parents. 🙂

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Thanks, Powell. SEVERAL members of my family are considered to be COMEDIANS. My Dad is one of them (He is STRAIGHT HILARIOUS when he is not working my last frickin’ nerve), but I also have people just as crazy as me on my Mom’s side too. So, I guess I’ve been doubly blessed with a (sometimes strange and twisted) sense of humor.

    OT social commentary/rant. While I was at the gym today, a sports show was on (this really isn’t about sports) covering something that happened a NFL Kansas football game yesterday. I’m not a sports fan, so I wouldn’t have normally seen this if the TV in front of my bike hadn’t been set on this station. During the course of the game, the home team quarterback was knocked out and the home team crowd actually cheered. Could not believe my ears when I heard this. The guy whose job it is to protect the qb appeared to be holding some sort of press conference about this and during his statements he(winston) said, “”Boo him all you want,” Winston said.”Boo me all you want. Throw me under the bus. Tell me I’m doing a bad job. Say I gotta protect him more. Do whatever you want. Say whatever you want. But if you are one of those people, one of those people that were out there cheering or even smiled when he got knocked out, I just want to let you know, and I want everybody to know that I think it’s sickening and disgusting. We are not gladiators and this is not the Roman Coliseum. This is a game.”

    I was so appalled that people would actually cheer when someone would get hurt, especially in light of all the recent news about the long lasting effectis of head injuries. But when Winston made the comment about the gladiators and coliseum, it reminded me that posters on this site had made similar comparisons to some of the housewives shows. I guess I’m just feeling sickened at what I call the Springerization of our society. I’m really hoping we’ve hit one end of the pendulum and are about to start swinging back towards civility, manners, and caring about your fellow man. Okay, rant over.

    • princesspindy says:

      It was their own QB!! that is what makes it more crazy!!!

    • This is why I’m so glad my son doesn’t play football anymore.

      The way the RHONJ cast treats each other, it is awful. Then the fans get addicted to the show and start fighting with each other on blogs, like we see all the time here. Altho it’s really minor here – other blogs are worse. Violence & human beings go together, from the beginning of time until ? who knows. I am embarrassed to admit that sometimes, it is entertaining to watch these maroons. Why do I (we) watch? Beats the crap outta me!

      • princesspindy says:

        And that Atlanta Braves game where they threw all the cans and bottles on to the field, I have never seen anything like it,

        well, there was that one Raiders game that I was at in LA when we had season tickets, that they had handed out seat cushions to the crowd and someone (I don’t know who) sailed theirs like a Frisbee and well, the whole Colosseum was flying seat cushions. But it was for fun and it wasn’t trash…..I went home with a lot of seat cushions that day, LOL!!!

        • AZGirl says:

          That call at the Atlanta game was a crime. I could not believe they call an infield fly on a ball that landed yards behind the dirt. I never saw fans go so crazy.

          • princesspindy says:

            In all my years of watching baseball, I don’t remember it being called and then to call it in the first wild card play off game, ridiculous!!

  39. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I can’t get over Melissa disgusting lie about how she is moving so that her kids won’t be in the same school with Teresa’s (they already don’t go the same school now)- then she can afford 10 times that house…bahahahahah okay. Then her “I’m the victim” soliloquy that followed…by her own words, she dragged minor children into the agreement then blamed Teresa’s children for her (mock) retribution. Yes, a 5 year old said “Melissa stinks”….who cares,,,my 5 year old called me a “fart eater”. get over it lady.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      But you are a fart eater. Your daughter makes sure of that, because it’s funny!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

      I secretly thought that was why she seemed to imply she was speaking about Milania in her comment. Shes so full of herself she is offended that a 5 year old thinks she has no talent. She has some real self-image issues if she would let that stop those girls from going to school together.

      • Powell says:

        And what are they all going to do when they are teenagers, forbid them to see one another?

        • melthehound says:

          They won’t even know each other by then. Gia will be in her early 20s and probably off to college. The rest of them, will have been so separated from their cousins, they’ll be little more than a distant memory. At the end of the day, Tuesday Autotune gets her wish, just as it is now… Poison Tarzan is a full fledged Marco sister and have zero contact with what once was his family. Poppa Gorga will likely be dead and who knows what will become of the F’ing Liar mother of theirs.

          • PJ says:

            I think Teresa is better off without Poison and Mel in her life. The kids will probably be better off too, but it is really sad.

            • melthehound says:

              I think so too. I wouldn’t even have gone as far as Teresa did, for a show or not, to want to fix things.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I agree that she was talking about Melania.I think it’s so pathetic that she would throw children under the bus instead of giving an honest answer. I think people would have had a lot more respect if she said, it was meant to be an investment property and it’s time to take our money and move on (even though, I don’t think they will make a dime of of it) than the vile she came out with.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Melissa has also made passive-aggressive negative comments about GIA (probably because Gia, at 11 years old, can dance circles around Melissa. And she does not need a POLE to do so). Melissa hates EVERYTHING TERESA (including her CHILDREN, IMO).

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Her envy doesn’t stop at product endorsements, hair stylists and make-up artists. She seethes with jealousy over Tre’s kids.

    • Winston says:

      That was such a ridiculous lie because Melissa tried to cover her lie by saying that they would go to the same junior high school and we all know Teresa is rich and her kids will go to private junior high school and Melissa will not be able to afford the tuition.
      I also think Melissa is offended by Tre’s kids mocking her and has made it personal. This is not a particularly flattering look for her.
      I find myself thinking that if my nieces and nephews were caught on tape mocking my singing, I would laugh out loud. Bottom line..kids are very truthful and Melissa did not like this.

      • melthehound says:

        The only reason TA was offended is because now, Poison Tarzan Marco’s nieces know the same truth as the rest of the world. She sucks.

        • ATLnNYC09 says:

          Ha! Good one Mel. Kudooz to the Giudice kids for there very astute insight into reality. They dont have delusions of grandeur, oh like, say, hmmm a 34 year old woman with 3 kids that thinks she’s the next J-Lo or Britney Spears.

    Where do we file an official complaint about these housewives and their sausage busting out of it’s casing, count the shiny rolls of what spanx can’t tame, too short and I don’t want to be flashed dresses? All the tugging and hands strategically placed over the “view” was getting on my last nerve!

    • noreen7 says:

      We must have typed our comments about the clothes at the same time – brilliant minds and all that!

    • Powell says:

      They’ve lived thru it & watched plenty of the other HWs reunions so we all know they know better. They think they look good. I did notice rolls on Jac as she was sitting. I wish they’d get makeovers. Even T cause she wears too much makeup, so does Mel.

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

      Ive hit my satin dress limit with this reunion. The two biggest body types decide to squeeze into satin dresses. What the hell was Jaq wearing? Red show girl sparkly ensemble was terrible. Melissa’s dress, looks familiar? Hmm where do I remember it from? Perhaps it was the damn near same dress Tre wore in her talking heads the whole season. For someone that doesnt want to be called a copy cat, she sure does copy Teresa alot. Is there only one dress store in North New Jersey?

    • Donna says:

      They needed Phradra’s prayer cloth

  41. noreen7 says:

    Thanks for all the great re-caps and blogs. Love reading them all. I noticed comments above about the satin dresses. I have to say, I thought Teresa looked the best because she wore a long dress and was not constantly trying to cover up her the gap between her legs and the dress with her hands. The other ladies looked ridiculous (as they do on all the reunion shows). And some advice to the NJHW: some of you, most of you, are past the ingenue stage; where some hot, sexy dresses for the plus 40 crowd. Not every inch of your body needs to be bear.

    Thanks for letting me rant!

  42. Orson says:

    Purely in the interest of Honesty, I am shocked, shocked to have to report that sources have revealed to me that one of the regular posters here and in chat, a MARRIED woman, has fallen in love with one of her new neighbors and has even inveigled her way to her new love’s birthday party. Which was attended by all of her love’s family. And at the party, Pindy, I mean, the married poster and chatter who should know better switched her affections to the older brother of the birthdayer. I don’t think she’s consummated this sinful adulterous relationship, but I think it would be fitting if she changed her avatar to a large RED letter “A”.

    Shame, shame on you!

  43. Orson says:

    Oh, and for no reason in particular, how does a poster here do a strike through? It seems , doesn’t work here.

    • Orson says:

      that should have been left pointing caret, lower case s, right pointing caret, and then the same with a forward slash between the first caret and the letter s.

      • princesspindy says:

        You are not allowed to do a strike thru, cuz one time, I don’t remember who the culprit was, the whole blog was struke thru! Hmmm, who was that……

  44. shamrockblonde says:

    mel! thanks for the TAR recap!!! – I felt so badly for the Anti-Diva team – I’m liking the long hair guys and the twins are growing on me – I do have a fondness for twins though, so I may be a bit biased!
    you are right about not seeing too much friction with the teams, but I am sure that it is coming –

    as for RHNJ – *long sigh* once again, I will state what I have always felt – T you can see coming a mile away – she does not hide her emotions well, and when put on the spot is not quick with a retort,- even when the accusation is untrue, or not deserved, she still has troubles responding – Mel on the other hand, is super slick and can plant that knife deep and slither away long before it is discovered – not good for T at all – Jaq is an embarrassment – she needs true therapy if she has any hope of ever helping her son, which sadly does not appear to be her priority – Kathie cannot stand being left in the shadows and the more she tries to make herself relevant the worse it gets for her – as for her husband – he should be seen and never – ever – heard from – Caro needs to, in the words of an evil red-head – “get a hobby”

    my prayers remain with all of the minor children on that show – I worry for their future –

    *hugs this entire board really hard*

      That’s not true. T is very fast with the nasty comebacks when she wants to be. She did it over and over and over. The problem is she tell so many lies, she gets caught. And, because she has no conscience, being exposed as a liar doesn’t really bother her…she’s sort of, whatever, about it.

    Was watching this video for next week’s Reunion Part 3 and I swear they are using secret code for “Trade” show. Chris claims he met Jac at a Trade Show in Chicago. I just have to ask..what exactly was being traded? Therein lies the truth.
    http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-4/videos/jacqueline-was-a-stripper

    • PJ says:

      My question is if he was at a trade show what was Jac doing there?

      • jac was a ‘traveling’ floor model… She stated that some dude from the Sopranos ( Steve ? ) hooked her up with the gig.. I dont believe she was a stripper or a dancer..She may have been paid to be some arm candy for the night …. and the story of modeling lingerie.. I can believe that… Why you ask ..When I had my arch.business I did the design for a club that did not allow stripping, but in order to get the guys to come to the business they had models who wore lingerie and it was available for purchase .the place was always packed and the week before Valentines Day was one of their best weeks for sales… go figure…

        Now MEGO.. well … thats a different story… I believe she danced….

        diva

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I could be wrong, Diva but she has said that she was a lingerie model. Unless I pulled that out of….thin air. But I believe it’s based on something to which SHE has already admitted.

          • Laineylainey….yes she did state she was a lingerie model.. thats why I said in my comment that I believed her .. My brother in law attends alot of trade shows..and sometimes the floor models are ‘available’ to accompany you to dinner , shows etc. Sorta like tour guides…winks

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Yeah, you did say you believed it, not sure what I was thinking. Sorry if I seemed argumentative. 🙂 I did a trade show once in Miami, not as a model, duh, I was very pregnant with my second child and was helping a company sell computers. There were BEAUTIFUL girls there, gorgeous, I was amazed. So a vendor could hire them to stand at your booth to attract customers. They were very, very young 18, 19 and very early 20s. It didn’t seem like the atmosphere there was that it was ok to ask them out…they (the girls) were not there to get dates. The ones I talked with were in college and spoke multiple languages (Miami is cool that way). These kids looked like fashion models, super tall, super skinny, …that was my one and only experience and that’s why I was incredulous when Jac said she was a trade show model. . Admittedly, my personal experience (1 trade show) was very limited.

              Oh and one time at band camp…no, not at band camp…but one time my husband’s then employer had a booth here in Austin at the IEEE convention in Austin and the guy who put the thing on hired our daughter to sit there/stand there and greet people who entered offering them a copy of the program and directing folks to sign in. She was 18, she’s 5’10” and a professional fashion model…runways, trunk shows, etc. It was last minute, but it was good money and she said that only a couple of “Disgusting Old Men” tried to hit on her.

              • princesspindy says:

                LOL Lainey, My daughter has FORBIDDEN me to utter the words, “One time at……” !!!!

        • melthehound says:

          Steve Schirripa who played Robert “Bobby Bacala” Baccalieri, is the guy I remember reading about.

    • princesspindy says:

      And just exactly were they “trading?”

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Chicago is a union town and McCormack Place is a union shop – like you can’t even plug in an extention cord in a trade show booth yourself – you need to call and a union electrician has to do it for you. Trade show models work at trade shows – they do not go “out to dinner” with the vendor’s customers. That whole I flew into work the show and met Chris there was a load of manure.

      • melthehound says:

    Last night when Joe Guidice came on, did anyone notice that all the ladies seemed really uptight and nervous, ESP Melissa!?!?!?

    Annnnnddd did anyone see her jump outta her chair when Teresa said Melissa dated Joeys friend first in Cancun?!?!?! This HAS to be true because FAMEWHORGAS website came out with this info before this reunion even aired!!

    I can’t wait for Melissa to be TRULY exposed and it will happen, theres also an article on famewhorgas.com that say Melissa has dated women. Idk if I believe all of it but I’m sure some is true. lol

    ….oh and heres the link for Jaquelines bankruptcy if anyone missed it before: http://fauxreality.wordpress.com/category/laurita-bankruptcy-explained/

    • Winston says:

      Her best friend all thru high school was a known lesbian and even Melissa has admitted it. I remember it being brought up on a past reunion, I think. I’ve even seen a picture of her and the friend somewhere. It’s just my opinion but I definitely think she has swam in the lady pond before.

      • djprincessc says:

        I remember her saying her friend was a lesbian but I don’t ever remember Melissa saying she swam in the lady pond. lol. My whole point with the lesbian thing is that she tries to sit up there as the doting housewife and angelic stay at home mom, but she really has a wild and shady past. No wonder she hates Teresa, they lived completely different lives before they got married.

        • ATLnNYC09 says:

          +10. Melissa wanted and still wants the life Teresa has. She really has a shaded past to be so young.

          • djprincessc says:

            Exactly. I mean I do think she loves Joe Gorga now, but do I think he was her first choice? NO. Do I think she married him for money YES. Do I think if he lost all his money she would leave him…probably.

            • ATLnNYC09 says:

              I agree C but I will amend my thoughts and say that it would depend on how old she was as to if she would leave him if he was broke

  47. noreen7 says:

    Is it true that there is an outstanding bench warrant for Melissa (Marco) Gorga from over 10 years in Florida for retail theft? I am never certain whether to believe these things or not. If it is, it seems that Melissa is not exactly the sweet little daddy’s girl she portrayed herself as on season 1. I do believe that a young person can make terrible choices when they are young and come out of it, but this would seem to bolster the opinion that Melissa is a liar. Does anyone know more?

    • djprincessc says:

      Its true I saw the warrant. I wish she would just “own it” as she always tells Teresa.

    • kit9 says:

      Teresa and her pig husband stole 11 million dollars so Mel shoplifting a decade ago not so big a deal. ANd, how is she lying about it?

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        A THIEF is a THIEF, no matter how much was “stolen.” Teresa and Mel could have bonded over their shared thievery. I don’t know why those women keep missing similarities and moments that could BOND them and make them BFF’s. *Shrug*

      • Winston says:

        A shoplifter doesn’t just steal once. I wonder how many times Melissa has shoplifted and never been caught. Not to mention how much I have paid in higher retail prices to pay for all the items she shoplifted!

        • Winston says:

          And I have to wonder, since Melissa claims she is so honest with Joe Gorga, does Joe know about Melissa’s arrest for shoplifting. Oh to be a fly on the wall.

      • djprincessc says:

        Kit9 what about Jaq and Chris stealing 55 million dollars? Why no mention of that?? Whoever stated stealing is stealing is right. And who knows what else she’s stolen in her life.

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

      Melissa, (as you said 1000 times to Teresa), SET IT STRAIGHT! Shes been quiet as a church mouse since this story hit.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        That’s because she is thinking of her “spin” to put on it. The only hold-up is that she is INSISTING that this charge must somehow be connected to Teresa, as in Teresa somehow shoved items in her bag unbeknownst to her, and she was caught and charged. She will insist that Teresa SET HER UP!!

        Her team keeps trying to tell Melissa that Teresa did not even KNOW her then, but she does not want to hear it because she wants this latest news item to fit in with her “2012 I AM A VICTIM OF BIG, BAD, EVIL TERESA GIUDICE” Tour.

        OF COURSE, she is going to say this information was released by Teresa (Never mind that, ALLEGEDLY, there are PLENTY of people in her town and surrounding areas that cannot STAND her A*S and would have motive to put that out and make her look bad. It is ALWAYS Teresa’s fault. GOT THAT? GOOD!! LEARN IT!! LIVE IT!! LOVE IT!!).

    AZGirl took a bullet for all youse here at Lynn Place and bought this weeks USWeekly with Mel, Jac, Caro and Kathy on the cover. Waste of money. The article is pieced together claiming that Tre never cares about anyone but herself. Teresa is only after fame etc. blah blah blah. Mel of course says that they are moving because she does not want her children in the same school with Teresa’s (which is BS) they are broke. Kathy claims that she always stuck up for Teresa and now with all of Teresa’s lies her friendship is over. Kathy says it is all about integrity HAHAHAHA….Yep! Integrity! Who knew?

      The way the real estate market is, Mel’s house may have to go on the auction block unless they can find someone to buy it for the same amount as the mortgage. Ooops forgot, Mel says they can pay for it 10 times over.

      This website sure is interesting

        So it is simple. Joe and Teresa spent a boatload of money they did not have through credit cards and loans and owe creditors. They have now released the bankruptcy and creditors are being paid off.
        Chris and his band of business guys spent all of the assets and investment money from their company which is embezzelment. hmmmmmmmm not good.

      Hey! I already took that billet on Wednesday! Stop copying me, you copying copy cat! 🙂 now I have to move to a new blog to escape you! Now mark my words I will lurk, oh how I will stalk you posts and talk about you! LOL. 🙂

      • AZGirl says:

        EXIT4 you are too funny. The only reason I bought it is because I am so freaking bored today. MrAZGirl gave me the day off. Sadly I now know I can never retire because the house was clean, gym class done, laundry folded and it was only noon.

    • Lady Chatterley says:

      🙂 My husband keeps coming home w/those as a “surprise” for me. I keep telling him I don’t want him to spend our hard-earned money on those worthless rags, but he does it anyway. Which suggests…he’s the one that wants to read them!

    • mrs. peabody says:

      I saw it at the store tonight and read the first page, I figured I’d finish reading it when I go grocery shopping later this week. No way will I pay for anything the 3 devils are on (they had red on) and I don’t remember seeing the 4th devil. Maybe she changed her appearance again and I didn’t recognize her. Yea that’s it.

    Amber , thanks for posting what you did above. I’m a little outnumbered so I don’t want to post all the 500 responses I want to the negative posts above, so thank you !
    Zoey- are you lurking like I have been?

    Maryla and Bella Beach Girl thanks for those posts yesterday about the obvious signs of so much lying!

    How GREASY and increasingly sweaty did she get, so so OBVIOUS! I don’t need to think back to my minor in Psych to see what it all means.

    PRINCESS PINDY your gravatar is HYSTERICAL. what an improvement!! 😉

    • kit9 says:

      Oh, so not alone. I just watched the reunion…. Wow! Greatest show ever! Teresa completely exposed as the lying, calculated, PSYCHOTIC vile soulless human being she is!

      To start, I completely forgot about Teresa’s attempt to damage Rosie and Kathy’s relationship. They are obviously in a great place now so why try and hurt the relationship by dragging up the past? Because T is horrible horrible human being. And as always-a liar. Rosie completely contradicted what T said that Kath accepting her. And, it’s hard to hear through the cross-talk but Rosie said it was Teresa who didn’t accept her being gay. Which I can SO see. Still, Teresa tried to lie right to Rosie’s face about calling her and inviting her over. Rosie almost fell off the couch over that one! ‘Joe who?!!’ had to be the line of the night.

      And, I knew Kathy would apologize for her comment about Teresa’s mom, despite the fact it was T that drug her into it, and she didn’t disappoint-immediately. Why? Because Kath is a decent human being. Did Teresa apologize for her horrible comments about Kathy’s marriage and her attempts to damage her and Rosie’s relationship? Of course not! Her fans didn’t tell her to(more on that).

      And, Teresa can’t come up with one example of Caroline bullying her. NOT ONE. But, something almost magical happened here, T actually told the truth, accidentally…she blurted out that essentially she gets her cues from how to pretend to feel from her FANS! She was just aping what she’d read on blogs! And, in the fastest turn around yet of one of Teresa’s lies, she contradicts herself in under 15 seconds!

      Hey, I noticed after Jac laid out all the things T had told her about Joe cheating that T, rather than deny it, just repeats what Jac had said. It’s lying 101. She’s stalling for time to think of a comeback-probably because she didn’t thing Jac would counter her low blows. Wrong.

      Teresa’s asinine singing segment brought up a thought,….I bet a million effing dollars that if someone did challenge Teresa to cook one of her ‘own’ recipes on the spot that she couldn’t do it. It would be Napalm all over again.

      So…On Display was written about Teresa? Teresa’s clinically insane It’s official. Effing crazy.

      • Nancy says:

        Teresa did give Caroline an answer to her Bullying comment. Teresa said “All season”
        and I agree.

        • djprincessc says:

          So I guess reprimanding and not allowing Gia to see her mom and Jaq chasing her isn’t bullying. Huh…who would’ve thought. As Detox says…*SHRUG*

          • Nancy says:

            🙂

            • djprincessc says:

              I mean come on, Caroline didn’t bully Teresa to her face, all season long she did it behind her back. She finally bullied her to her face on Vacation. But last night Caroline and Jaq both called her an idiot, among other things on the couch! I guess thats not bullying either.

              • stellastars21 says:

                I had no idea calling someone an idiot was bullying. I’m really sincere in that. I think some people are idiots and I call them one all the time. I always had a slightly different definition of bullying so I’ll have to re-think that one cause I don’t want to be a bully. And speaking only for myself and not anyone else, given some of the names I’ve called these group of ladies, I guess I would be a bully too and don’t have a leg to stand on when trying to call them out as one.

                • djprincessc says:

                  I think if Idiot was the only thing Caroline called Teresa it wouldn’t be a big deal, but its clear she’s had it out for her all season. I think bullying is when you make someone YOUR target. I was just using idiot as an example but overall its wayyyyy more than that. Trust me I’m a bully too then if it was just about the idiot thing. lol.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            😉 DJ! My *shrug* can also be interpreted to mean, “It ain’t no thang but a chicken wang!” (In short, even though I write lengthy diatribes outlining my arguments and reasoning behind same for some of these housewives, at the end of the day, I really don’t give a sh*t!” *Shrug* 😉

      • chismosa says:

        Kit, I SO “co-sign” +10000 which I believe means I agree wholeheartedly?
        There are just SO many things that I want to spell out my responses and retorts to but i just …….can’t ……. It’s just so futile. Its like when melissa threw her hands up and just couldnt fight anymore last night. I don’t know how else to put it. But I have to say Reunion Pt 2 made it all that much clearer for me and I’m so happy in my clarity! I’m glad my instinct and gut feelings have not been wrong yet. I thought i saw the light last season and its still there. Thank god

        Good to know we exist out there, among here. We’re like the mini groups of people left in The Walking Dead or Falling Skies! We ARE out there! Lol 😉
        It’s these moments I miss Lynn’s take most. Not to diminish all the blog runners AT ALL!

  51. Exit4 says:

    Teresa wrote a blog on her website denying Melissa’s claim she called Antonia ugly. Here’s the thing….if Teresa did call Antonia ugly (off camera, in private) why would Melissa share this? It’s the tree falls in a forest concept-if you (the viewers) don’t hear it, was it said?

    If Melissa was trying to show us what a bad aunt Teresa is, she picked the wrong thing! By saying that out loud, she basically ensures that Antonia will hear it at some point in her life. Why would you even put your daughter in the position of hearing her aunt thinks she’s ugly? That’s just horrible! Keep it to yourself, so no one is any the wiser. If its true, then be angry quietly! If its a lie…. Melissa just put out a sad insult towards her child, which will never go away, all for her own gain. This is so dark and twisted!

    Lastly, Melissa is going on and on about moving to get away from Teresa and ensure her kids won’t go to school with her kids! By the time that happens all the nj wives will be out of the public eye! So she is ruining the future to ensure fame in the present. Yuck. BUT notice that she is not leaving the show to get away from Teresa. She won’t live near her, send the kids to the same schools, or associate with her in anyway-EXCEPT for filming the SAME show and talking about her in magazines and social media! Why? Oh I know! She makes money for those things! Sheesh….

    • Powell says:

      Exit that’s what i said about Jac yesterday. why was she so much on at the reunion that T wasn’t there for he re Nicholas? We didn’t lnow/see anything about Nicholas on the show so why bring it up? Since she asked T to keep it private T did, then talk to T privately that she wasn’t supportive. See that’s what i mean that they have no legit reason to be mad at T. it’s just pure jeaulosy.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I’m not quiet sure just what kind of ‘support’ Jac was looking for from Teresa. A few kind words? Some encouragement? Sometimes, you need to tell people what is is you need. Teresa obviously thought she was supporting you by doing what you asked her to but now she is angry that Teresa didn’t do something she didn’t ask for.

        When I am looking for support in regards to some obstacles my daughter faces, I tend to look to parents of kids that are in my position because they might have the info that can help such as therapies, clinics ect. When I just need a friend to talk to about whatever, I just call a friend….

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      This is exactly what I was going to say.
      While I don’t beleive that Teresa did say that about Antonia- why the hell would you put that out there. Now Melissa is on twitter freaking out saying ‘OMG- Did Teresa seriously write a blog about my daughter? This is why I am moving’.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Teresa would never say that, because Teresa can SEE that the child is absolutely gorgeous!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I agree, not to mention Teresa posted many pictures of Antonia that look much like she did went she was a kid. So would a ‘ dumb/ evil genius conspirator/ narcissist’ say a child who has her mothers name and looks remarkably like her and ugo? Nope, don’t think so.
          Melissa is getting called out on her lie and is starting to huff and puff.

        Bye B1tch.

  52. WindyCityWondering says:

    So this is what pisses me off the most about RHNJ – four wives have a different set of rules of engagement than the one they have isolated for execution. They can talk about her character, her marriage, her financials, her children, her parents and then bring up things that were not filmed. If she answers then she is a liar or flat out told she is not allowed to talk about those topics. This franchise belongs on Animal Planet.

  53. ATLnNYC09 says:

    Regarding RHONY: Why is George so orange? Bad spray tan? The man is the color of a tic tak.

  54. Exit4 says:

    So, now a family source has revealed on the always reliable radar that Gia is being bullied in school. They also have snippets from her tumblr and twitter. I wonder who that family source could be?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IIRC, Wacky talked about Gia having a bad time at school….so likely she blabbed to that family “source” – you know – the one who brings Christmas and Birthday presents to school.

      • djprincessc says:

        I was going to say it has to be either Melissa or Jaq.

      • Exit4 says:

        People are up in arms that she has a twitter or a tumblr. Thankfully mine are too young for any if that stuff, but among my friends with older kids, Gia’s age, it’s a mix of having FBs and those things. Some are allowed, some not. A few got caught on the sly…So I have no opinion on that!

        However, it bugs me when adults get all hit and bothered about it ON THE INTERNET, then read and contact and engage with a child, to tell them to get off Twitter! In a sense they are warning her about people just like them! Same with Ashlee and Danielle going at it online in S2. Ashlee was wrong, but Danielle, being 50 and a mother should have never engaged. She’s the adult, and she didn’t act like one. Although at this point we know where Ashlee gets her social media habits from!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Oh my gosh you’re right Exit, I always wondered how/why Ashley was spending so much time on social media when her parents were publicly complaining and acting like victims because she lacked direction, motivation, etc. Twitter/facebook is something she HAD IN COMMON with her mom.

    • Klmh says:

      This child has been bullied for 2 seasons, even before her mother made Gia and her siblings a laughing stock, for Gods sake.

      • Klmh says:

        Seems I have developed a bit of anemia from my natural color. Pardon me…

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I really don’t think any minor children belong on reality tv . I know know why all these women are so quick to put their kids out there….it rarely turns out well.

          • Klmh says:

            Could not agree with you more RR, but to try to blame anyone other than the dumb parents is idiotic, and unfair. If you dont know the truth, don’t make it up.

          • Exit4 says:

            Even if the kids weren’t in TV, they still would hear stuff at school because the parents are. Does anyone think CJ or Danielle’s kids or little Antonia never hear anything? Kids can be cruel, even without reality TV there were kids that got bullied or teased because of their parents when I was young. Same as with TV, they usually get the bad stuff/info at home-from the adults!

            Even worse, you can kind if expect the kids to get a little guff from other kids, but the biggest harassers of these children, really, are other adults! We’ve seen it on the blog and on social media. That never made sense to me! Kids are kids, they act up. Adults know better but act the same. Plus, whoever this family source is, unless its Milania, is a grown up-a grown up who knows this child and is putting it out there thayvshebhets teased, for other adults to judge. Assuming its true, the adult is putting the kid on blast, letting the world know she is on twitter and tumblr so they can look for it and essentially, damaging a kid deliberately, simply out if hate for her mother.

            Truth is, she’s not a regular 11 year old who can quietly use social media with their friends, if they are allowed. She’s a target of cruel grown ups who are too attached to reality TV! And, it goes without saying, hiding behind the anonymity of the Internet to hurt a kid. It’s such a shame!

  55. AZGirl says:

    Watching re-runs of NY and Aviva at the Yummie fashion show. What model would determine whether or not to wear something that the designer has given you to wear? Totally arrogant on Aviva’s (a/k/a PT) part and Heather was kind to let it pass. As for Aviva’s “PT” label from SH I was in Target in the paper towel section and burst out laughing. I had a “Jaq” moment.

    I bet Lulu isn’t very happy with being on the end of the couch. That’s the kiss of death for next season. Bye bye Lulu.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh my gosh, you’re right, nancy! I’d be shaking in my boots if I was relegated to the end of either couch.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        LuLu has been there before and oddly enough….she is still here!

        Oh, those boots… who can forget them! I wonder if her lucky boots will help her to come up with another Baby story line for S6!

        I was watching early this morning S3, when she was still pretending to be classy and her high horses! This Season she could not fool anyone so she went with the story of having an affair with JD alike person! Cat from DC has Lulu’s number!Lol!

    I can’t get over how much better a lighting job the NY housewives are getting tonight vs Jersey. Maybe Advil requested it? Left couch seems to need the most help there. But happy to see Heather finally learned that much less is more on the makeup department, same as for Bethenny. Carol and Advil ‘s faces seem to look worse than during regular filming

    I’m feeling sorry for Lulu right now.
