Lisa Vanderpump being Sued / Real Housewives of New York Cast Blogs

Housewife News by NoMoreDrama

Lisa Vanderpump is being sued by an actress/restaurant server who claims she was sexually assaulted while an employee at Villa Blanca.  In the 5 million dollar lawsuit, the ex-employee names a Villa Blanca manager, Lisa and her husband Todd according to TMZ.  Lisa claims the server had a falling out with the manager – and there was no more to it than that based on surveillance tapes.  Read all the details here.

Kyle Richards has given an interview to People Magazine claiming that Reality TV won’t ruin her marriage.  “I am like a lion with my family, my cubs.   I’m very, very, very protective. If I ever felt like something was being affected in any way by the show, I would just walk away in a millisecond,” she says.”  I wonder if Adrienne, Taylor, Camille, and all the ladies of Real Housewives of D.C. felt the same way at some point?  Full Article Here

A HuffPost reporter (not Rob) visits with Ramona Singer in her home and talks decorating, clothes, shoes, and other assorted topics.  It’s a cute, upbeat interview.  Read it Here

Jacqueline Laurita just can not stop talking about the “set up” at the Posche Fashion show. Previews for the third part of the reunion show Kim D showing up to answer the million dollar question – Was Teresa Giudice involved?  We already know Kim has come out in support of Teresa and said “no”.  Let’s see if how Bravo edits this.  Jacqueline in the meantime is still determined to prove that Teresa was involved.  She tweeted these little tidbits yesterday.  Her advice.  Read the manifesto.

Here’s her Number 4 and 7 so you don’t have to wade through her blog.  It’s a long, arduous one.

“4. Kim D. will protect her friends publicly, but will usually own up to her own mischievous ways and take accountability for her actions, right or wrong. I respect her for that. Even though she doesn’t always play nice when angered.

7. Why would Teresa suddenly go to new salon to get her make-up and hair done when she has someone who came to her house to do it on a regular basis? Why didn’t Kim just go to Teresa’s house to get ready? Teresa would have NEVER agreed to go to someone else for make-up and hair like that unless she had an ulterior motive. (Which she did.) TERESA KNEW KIM D. WAS MAKING MELISSA THE TARGET THAT DAY! Even if she never knew all of the details of how it would go down, Teresa knew Melissa was the target and she was going to allow Kim to do whatever she wanted to hurt Melissa, while Teresa played innocent and clueless (which isn’t hard for her). I know she knew. I was told the truth by someone involved, who shall remain nameless, that won’t publicly “out” her friend. I’m not friends with Teresa anymore, so I don’t care. I’ll say it.”

(An old photo from Boston below)

Meanwhile …. Teresa’s Giudice‘s latest blog is another brilliant PR move.  Instead of trying to address the crapfest of a reunion, her ghostwriter grabbed a bunch of fan tweets and put them into the blog.  Our own plainvuesue is in there.  I can’t copy and paste it – and RamonaCoaster won’t be able to blog it because of the format – but please go over to Bravo’s website and take a look. They also made a bunch of captioned photos. Whatever she’s paying her team – it’s worth it.  Below is our own captioned photo – by Boston.

Jill Zarin – twitter is on fire.  Andy Cohen has awakened the Red-haired Beast.  It is amusing and disturbing all at the same time.  Jill continues to claim that she was “invited” to appear on Watch What Happens Live despite Andy Cohen‘s confirmation that she asked first.  Here’s the latest in her string of tweets – plus a review of Andy’s – in-your-face tweet.  I almost feel sorry for her … not.

Ratings.  Rating were up a little for Real Housewives of Miami as the ladies moved into their 5th episode of the season.  With a lead in from the preview 10 minutes of the New Jersey reunion, Miami retained 870,000 viewers.  It’s certainly not great, but better than a further slip – and they were against the Vice Presidential debate and Project Runway.  Life After Top Chef – which was up against Duck Dynasty and Couples Therapy had a dismal showing of under 400,000 viewers.  Expect a shakeup on Wednesday nights.

Ramona Singer

Doing the reunion is a tiring day. I filmed it while I was sick and the next day I found out I had vertigo and an inner ear virus. It took me almost three weeks to recover!!!

You looked pretty good except some of your facial expressions were crazier than usual.

Carole was a very interesting addition to RHONY.  She is very downtown, peace-love-and-flower-power. Sometimes though, you need to take a stand. To allow and enable Aviva and George’s behavior and not call them on it at her book party; to not comment about Reid’s very rude comment about overweight women gone wild; to not take control as a hostess in St Barth’s and try to calm and rectify the  situation…

But it’s scary dealing with crazy, screwed-up, narcissistic people so of course she can’t speak up.

I understand LuAnn’s point about Carole. When filming, Carol was Zen-like and, by her own admission on the reunion, passive and just observed when interacting with all of us. It surprised me that in Carole’s interviews she could be quite snarky in her comments about everyone. Who knew this was really what she was thinking? I too would rather have someone tell me to my face. Carole said she says nothing mean or malicious behind our backs in her interviews, but I’m not buying that.  Doesn’t she see what she says?

She’d rather call them out in her talking heads. It’s much safer.

Aviva, Aviva, Aviva. Where do I begin? Aviva apologized to me on the reunion. Do I believe she is sincere? You tell me. It seems to me that she only decided to apologize after the fans turned on her.

She’s not sincere.  She’s only sorry that everyone saw her lose it.

The first part of St. Barth’s, Aviva was not there or featured in the episode. She still took it upon herself to write her blog trashing me and Sonja.  Leading up to the episode where she lost it, Aviva was talking to many different press outlets and taking to her Twitter to attack us. It was only when there was a major backlash against her on Twitter, the press, and Bravo blog comments that she decided to apologize on the reunion to me.  I wish no one ill will and I am taking in Aviva’s apology. I am cautious though as her actions have not matched her words.

If only you could Lo-Jack her to make sure she’s not going to creep up behind you and scream “trailer trash turd!”

I’m glad Heather and I had a turnaround. She and I are alike in some ways and maybe that’s why we butted heads. We both talk a lot — although I think I give people a chance to speak and interact LOL. This is something I felt Heather never did with me.  All the other girls commented to me that Heather never listens and always talks over them. Then they told me Heather was upset with me. The important thing is we talked through it and overcame it. No one is perfect, least of all me. Everything is a learning experience.  The day I stop growing is the day I’ll die.

Oh that’s nice. Despite all your negative exchanges with the other ladies, you can let go of your hurt and move on.  Not a lot of people can do that.

Heather Thomson

Tonight we saw the first part of the two-part reunion show. If you were expecting drama on the level of the New Jersey ladies, then I am sorry that we may have disappointed you but I am happy that we did!

We don’t need anymore drama on the Jersey level.

But don’t be mistaken, there was a lot of tension in that room and I can tell you Sonja and LuAnn were unexpectedly primed.  Unlike during filming, I felt an unexpected distance or separation if you will, from some of the ladies from the moment we sat down that I had never felt before.

Uh-oh, is there a whole other show going on in your head?  I noticed you getting very defensive with Luann. I was wondering if there was something going on with you two off the show.

But before I get into my perspective on Part 1, I would like to take this opportunity to explain why I use the term “holla” and what it means.

Oh, crap! A grammar lesson by Heather.  No thanks. We can look it up in the Urban Dictionary.

I will start by telling you that I did not “plan it” as part of my opening title line for the show, it happened while recording my line, “My success is built on making women look and feel there best.”  In the studio while recording it one of our producers said, “It feel like it needs a ‘Heatherism’ on the end? Maybe try ending it with something that comes organically to you and we’ll see how it sounds?”  “Holla” naturally flowed out of me as a positive shout out to all the ladies who over the past 4 years have been rockin’ and lovin’ bought my Yummie Tummie products and it stuck.

Once again, gratuitous marketing. She spends a few more paragraphs describing how people are using the term.  I can tell she’s testing out whether she might consider getting a trademark for this term in the future.

Another topic discussed on the reunion couch that I want to approach is the process of borrowing clothing from designers.

The first point was that Naem dresses VVIPs and often customizes his pieces for them.  Her second point was that Life and Style Magazine did not give Naem Khan the exposure he covets for his collection. Carole felt that LuAnn asking for Naeem directly to loan her a dress, was out-of-line and put someone very close to her  in an awkward position while Naeem was being nothing more than a gracious host for his wife and her guest.  In no way was Carole saying that LuAnn was not good enough for a Naem Kahn design and — agree or not — LuAnn chose to take it personally and did not reflect on Carole’s perspective at all.

That’s just another way of saying Luann is not good enough to wear Naeem Khan’s dresses.  I get that Life and Style is not the same as Vogue. Luann does need to accept that she is not a household name.  Not everyone watches the Bravo Housewives’ shows.  Those dresses would get minimal visibility compared to an actress wearing Naeem Khan to the Oscars.  It’s about money. And it’s between Carole and Luann. It’s not your beef.  Geez, Andy asks you one question and you go on and on.

I adored getting to know both LuAnn and Jacques during filming RHONY and quickly began to cherish the new friendship that we were building. Lu is a lot of fun, she is beautiful inside and out, we spent a good deal of time off-camera with our guys, and Jon and I grew very fond of her and Jacques. 

Although the closeness remains, my frustration with LuAnn came to a head on the reunion as I continually encountered her inability to receive constructive criticism or even try to learn from others feedback.

Wait! You just figured this out now?

If LuAnn doesn’t like something that someone has said about her, then in her mind, it isn’t true. After St. Barths it had been building and on the couch it begins to come out.

I so desperately want LuAnn to be more open and accepting of others’ thoughts and feelings because, ultimately, it will make her an even better person. Nobody’s perfect.

Funny that you’re saying this, Motormouth. I doubt your words can penetrate Luann’s snakeskin exterior. In Luann’s mind, she dictates and feels she sets the standard on how to live.  That’s why she wrote her book.  Looking at her book sales, not a lot of us bought what she was shilling because we all see she doesn’t practice what she preached since Season 2.

We all have a need for attention and admiration from others, but LuAnn’s steady composure is shaken only when her confidence is threatened and she is very confidant, which can leads to a tendency of taking others for granted, and I will not allow her do that to me.

If she can take Jacques for granted and take home a pirate for a “tour of the house” then she’ll take anyone for granted. Even you.

We ALL have room to learn and to grow. We need to own our flaws and shortcomings, and work to improve ourselves as human beings through the experience or living and others perspectives and hopefully we can laugh a lot doing it!

That’s called character.

Sonja Morgan

When my fellow ‘Wives do well, I do well. I know LuAnn must’ve missed her brunette couch, but funny how she and Ramona had a chance to get to know each other this season in a new way.

Luann’s still a snake throwing people under the bus and laughing about her wicked ways. She’s just not having as much fun when there’s no one to back her up.

First up, we have LuAnn saying Carole’s strategy is to just talk behind everyone’s back in her interviews but not on camera when we’re together and interacting. I have to say I was very surprised to see some of the comments that she made when she wielded her trusty pen. Carole wrote and said things in her interviews that did not match the face that she showed us while filming. That can be hurtful and leaves you defenseless on camera. We don’t see what’s filmed until you see it, and then it’s too late.

Unfortunately there are some people who do think you all are a big joke.  Carole just has a better view.

I do like that Lu admits that she made her comments to get on Radzi’s nerves. Fair enough! I like that Radzi voiced her opinions when it comes to Ranjana, because she is entitled to her feelings — those are her dear friends. However, she says she doesn’t borrow their clothes, but I do know she wore some Ranjana’s jewelry and a dress that Ranjana made her.

It’s not like Carole just met Ranjana and asked her to borrow a dress.

Then Heather says Lu gets upset if you don’t say what she wants. That’s true. So I pipe in on that one too! Look what happens when “big girl syndrome” goes up against itself.

Heather doesn’t like it either when she doesn’t hear what she wants or else no trip to London for you.

I have borrowed dresses for high-profile events where I would be photographed ever since I was a young girl as a model and sometimes actress. Same goes for my charity events. I cannot afford to buy (nor want to) a new dress every time I’m seen wearing a dress in the press.

I have to give kadooz to Sonja with that statement.  That’s keeping it real.

Regarding the Princess vs. Countess comment, they’re both real titles by marriage. Lu lived with a man who lived the life of a count and was seated socially around the world at dinners using that title at placement dinner parties and was introduced with that title. Lu has children who will also carry that title, so it’s very real for her.

Is she a name dropper? Sure! So am I. If you know those people, it’s just the game. Is it annoying? I’m sure it is. It doesn’t make anyone a bad person. It just means socially you know the same people, that you’re not going anywhere, you paid your dues, you’ve been around, you’re accepted, and you’re “in.”

I guess because in the whole scheme of things, this social climbing game is really meaningless.  I’m glad you said it’s just a game and if you enjoy it then fine.

Everyone feels insecure at times. We all have our safety mechanisms. If the Countess is using her title less this year, kudos to her! It just says she’s becoming more secure as a single woman since her divorce.

And I guess you’re doing the same thing when you talk about your lifestyle you had in the past.

I’m very surprised when Aviva says Harry is her ex for a reason.

Are the reasons alimony and child support?

I’ve known Harry for decades and I’ve known Aviva for seconds; why would I side with her against the facts as I see them? I’m not feeling Aviva needs to be protected from Harry. Anyone who meets Harry knows he’s a bon vivant, a loving dad, and a loyal friend, who would give the shirt off his back. He comes from a very wealthy family, but it’s not his money to give away.

Interesting.

At this point, Aviva’s apologies are like the boy who cried wolf. We have to see over time. I hope she can keep her promise this time and not continue to insult me and make up untrue stories, because I cannot accommodate “friends” like that, no matter how hurt they are from past trauma. I have a little girl to support, a world I built for myself, and people who depend on me.

As Ouiser Boudreaux would say “Clairee, you are too twisted for color TV!” I think Aviva is too twisted for this show.

See you next week for Reunion Part 2 where I just can’t stop about the Sonja logo. Bear with me. I promise we will get through this. You may even like it! Maybe even Heather will.

Will this logo ever wind up on a toaster oven box?

Carole Radziwill

Dear Friends,

So after London and Miami, St. Barth’s and Le Cirque, inviting and not inviting and God knows how many toasts, bottles, planes, subways and cars, it all comes down to a couch. Six women, 18 episodes, 12 really expensive shoes, and an elegant little seating arrangement fanned out around Dr. Andy Freud.

We were instructed to wear:  1920s evening meets Truman Capote Black & White Ball. This seemed, on the face of it, a contradiction. The famous ball was in 1966, but six of this, half of that.

I can see how Andy would style himself as Truman Capote trying to strip the housewives’ masks away. Carole’s late husband’s parents attended that soiree.

Where to begin is the question. Let’s start with LuAnn.

Princesses and people are the same to me. No distinction. I didn’t talk behind LuAnn’s — or anyone’s — back. In fact, I barely talked to LuAnn in front of her back. One of the few times I did, it was to discuss my feelings about a situation that involved her and a close friend of mine and we walked away from that conversation just fine. She never brought it up again. She didn’t tell me that her feelings were hurt. How painful it must have been to hold that in for the entire four months of filming? In fact, I had no idea that LuAnn felt it was “the most hurtful thing anyone had said” to her until right there on the couch. Do you know why? Because she never said this, ever, in front of me.

You did say it to her face and she ignored it because it’s not what she wants to hear.  But she does expect you to hear her. Just ignore her. It’ll drive her crazy.

It’s so silly all this talk about backs. Everyone is so caught up in backs that no one can see the fronts. What we say in interviews and our blogs is not behind anyone or anything, it’s public. It’s for the whole world to watch or read if they care to. There’s no crying in baseball, and there are no backs in reality TV.

It’s the reaction when you say something to someone’s front that’s entertaining to watch.  Action and reaction. Like science.  Like journalism.

It is why it’s such a fun guilty pleasure.

What makes the show more than just watching us lunch and cab around town to parties, are the observations. We watch it, we live it, we share our observations. We are meant to point out the odd, humorous, and curious behaviors of each other in confessional interviews. So we do. When Sonja said, in an interview, she thinks I’m a poor hostess this isn’t talking behind my back. She’s being asked to comment on a situation, she’s being asked her observations.

But she did say to your face that “you might not make the best hostess” and you’ve said it too.

Is elegance learned or does it come naturally? Who knows. I think LuAnn is purposely dodging the real issue about my friends and the dress so she can make this a conversation that is focused on her.

I absolutely agree.  She wants to make sure there’s a spot on next year’s couch but she’s not willing to suffer any ill will towards her and make sacrifices to do it. She also was not good friends with Andy Cohen before she came on the show.

I don’t ask designers for dresses. It’s an imposition on a designer, so I don’t ask, because I’m not Meryl Streep — a designer wouldn’t get much attention for going to the trouble. But borrowing happens. I get it.

I think in Luann’s mind, she is Meryl Streep.

Here’s the story: I had only met LuAnn twice, I barely knew her when she asked if I could arrange for her to get earrings from Ranjana’s showroom. She got the earrings, enjoyed my friend’s hospitality, then asked to borrow dresses. Naeem did not offer as she says. Naeem is not my “designer friend” he is a friend. He’s one of my closest friends, like family, and I would never want him to be put in an awkward position with a favor request from a stranger because of me. Just as I would no more walk into Jacques office and ask him to send me ten cases of wine — gratis. This — to me — is about politeness.

It was never about earrings or designers, or even LuAnn; it was always about code of conduct. My code and LuAnn’s code are different.

What!? You never read Class with the Countess?  Me neither. I have no idea what Luann deems polite or classy.  What I’ve observed is Luann using etiquette as a weapon to put people down and the fact that she throws the word class around means she has none.

 I’m not saying one is better, but they are obviously different. And they clashed from time to time, as you saw.

So if I’m not in a scene — like on St. Barth’s, when Aviva insulted Ramona and Sonja — I don’t know how it exactly went down or what was said until I watch the show. I’m watching it cold, just like you. We didn’t get a script of the scenes that were shot or dialogue that was said.

The filming of the show and the watching of it are two completely different experiences.

Each was a fun wild ride.

You just assumed that it was all Ramonja’s fault, that the women were just exaggerating Aviva’s meltdown and how could they remember anything in their alcohol induced fog.

We filmed the show last winter and then I watched it, along with all of you, for the first time. It’s interesting to watch. I see the appeal. As anyone who has read my weekly blogs knows, I think most of the drama is humorous and like in real life some take it more seriously than others.

After Taylor’s husband Russell took his life, you can’t help but see that this show can affect people’s psyche and the decisions they make.  I can’t help but feel that what we saw out of Aviva, Jill and Kelly is just the tip of the iceberg.

Google must have been a sponsor of this season for all the times they were plugged. There was a lot of googling, including English Common Law. Huh? Ramona still makes me laugh. I was trying to address this, on the couch, the issue of Reid’s comment. It was out of line, there was no question. And rather than give it any attention or weight at all, I ignored it and we moved on. Sometimes silence is the best way to shut down an awkward conversation.

Ignoring it doesn’t make it go away. We’ll see it in every re-run.

 I’ve never heard Reid speak like that off or on camera.

Like you never heard Aviva go batsh*t crazy?  Doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen.

Aviva knows it was out of character. She apologized and we moved on. We spent most of that dinner talking about Aviva’s organic food. Russ is a vegan and Aviva’s very knowledgeable about healthy diets. I mostly drank.

Love the contrast. It’s nice that they still accept you despite smoking pink cigarettes, drink lychee martinis & diet coke.

Aviva Drescher

“Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.” — Benjamin Franklin.

Sometimes I think that instead of calling our show The Real Housewives of New York City it should be called “Teachable Moments.” It has been a learning experience. . .

What is it with you and Heather saying this is a teaching moment or a learning experience.  It’s a reality show, not a documentary.

An apology, in my opinion, is  putting a relationship and another persons feelings before your own ego. It is about making a wrong right. I take an apology very seriously whether I am giving one or receiving one. An apology propels us forward and enables relationships to evolve,  grow, and fosters trust.   When I apologize, I mean it through words and by actions.  It is not about winning, losing, or keeping score. 

Talk is cheap.

Tonight  I apologized to Ramona  and Sonja for the way I spoke to them in St. Barths.  I was wrong to allow my emotions get the best of me. As a result, not only did I hurt people, but  my message was lost. 

What message was that?  Phobias are a good way to manipulate people?

l would like  to mention a point about ex-husbands. For the purposes of this show, I chose to discuss and portray  my ex-husband on camera in the most positive light for the sake of our child. It is my prerogative to discuss what I choose about my ex-husband as it is Sonja’s to discuss hers. While we handled the subject very differently,  I think the better course would be to  not discuss other peoples  exes/divorces without invitation. The stakes are just too high where children are involved. 

I guess writing about Harry in your blog doesn’t count.

Luann de Lesseps

I must say the most surprising thing to me about the reunion was how aggressive Heather was towards me. I have my faults like everyone else, but I considered Heather to be a close friend.

Maybe you should thank her for making you relevant.  Aviva’s meltdown and Sonja’s logo overshadowed your baby-making storyline.

What makes a mean girl? A mean girl hoards her friendships and doesn’t think other people are good enough to join her circle.

Remember when you thought Alex wasn’t good enough?

A mean girl says things like “You’re not good enough to wear a certain designer.”

Because even designers like Louis Vuitton makes mistakes with Herman Munster shoes.

A delusional girl says that she bought all the clothes on the rack outside her apartment door when you know that they are out there to be picked up by a designer’s assistant.

Calling Carole delusional is fighting words. I wonder if it’s true or not.

Part 1 of the reunion ends with Aviva profusely apologizing to Ramona and Sonja who were not in a very forgiving mood that day.

Who would be? Who needs that mess?

 Aviva’s learning the hard way that once you say something, it’s out there and you can’t take it back no matter how much you say you are sorry. We all have compassion for Aviva and while Ramona and Sonja may eventually forgive her, it’s hard to say whether or not they will forget.

The problem is – is she really sorry that she hurt Ramonja’s feelings or is she sorry she is seen as a crazy, spoiled, entitled woman.

  1. Powell says:

    Happy Saturday everyone. So much excitement and good news yesterday. I hope today brings more happiness and joy.

  2. LuvMyGals says:

    Congratulations Cityside and Lulu! A little bundle on the way – enjoy the expectation.

  3. Lulu says:

    Someone seriously needs to put Jac out her misery!!!!!! Lock up all the booze!! Take her tweeting capabilities away from her. She’s a complete mess!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      What is very sad is that Jac decided at the reunion that she could use off show friendship information – Juicy was correct in telling her not to go there and I doubt we will see Caroline interact with her as she could also become a target of that unfiltered mouth. IMO, Jac needs to be retired and rehabbed.

      • Powell says:

        WCW it’s that off air info that Jac says she’s mad at T that I don’t believe. She’s mad cause T didn’t talk more to her & be more sympathetic about Nicholas? I don’t buy it. Jac along w/the rest of them are jealous of Ts success.

    • plainviewsue says:

      I cannot understand how Chris doesn’t see what those of us on twitter see re Jac. It is seriously disturbing and no joke.

      She tweets non stop about autism as if she is the now the new expert on it and actually tweets aren’t you glad that I know all this information that I am sharing. And then she will go on a twitter rampage regarding Teresa. Saying that she has the tapes to prove that Tre set up Melissa & wishes she could find a place that she could legally play them. Saying that she will be writing one final blog after the reunion so we can once again hear her rambling on about how Teresa is the devil and the worst human being ever.

      How dare she say to Juicy I hope that you do go to jail. Who says that??? Teresa couldn’t even respond. Esp now seeing the court papers about Chris’ former business and the legal issues they have with that.

      I had watched some of the end of reunion part one yesterday while flipping thru stations. When Kathy attacked Teresa’s mom, Jac was sitting there with a huge smile on her face. Well that frozen smile that is scary to see. I didn’t notice the first time, but when Tre goes to the other couch, Melissa says. “That’s much better.” What a b*tch.

      It’s all so very sad.

      • melthehound says:

        Have you ever noticed that she c0cks her head to the side when she says anything? Have you noticed that so far, she’s spent much of the entire reunion wagging her fat finger at Teresa? Have you noticed that since she said, on the show, on her own porch, that she wanted to cut Teresa from her life, she hasn’t STFU about her? Have you noticed that even with a special needs 3yo to take care of, she seems to spend all of her time chasing Teresa around the internet?

        I asked this question on another blog but since it’s two or three days old, I don’t expect answer. Regarding this ‘8 month wait for insurance to kick in’ before having him tested. She’s a ritzy titzy b*tch… Why wait for insurance before getting testing done?

        • plainviewsue says:

          I actually read the whole People article while in the doctor’s office, and she absolutely states about waiting the 8 months for the insurance to approve. People have wondered if that was a quote from a blog that was misinterpreted. It isn’t.

          Many of us have stated we would have sold our home, a kidney, etc. for our child.

          Worst mother of the year award. And I absolutely now totally feel for Ashlee.

          • Powell says:

            That just doesn’t make sense to me. I believe someone here said that NJ has a great system for helping parents w/special needs children. All of the cars they leased Ashley, all of Jacs shopping, all of those bottles of wine they have in the wine cellar. That money could have been used.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              I think the insurance scam was a lie to support the time line for a publicity campaign to help Jax look more sympathetic before the reunion. Teresa had to be very careful to not go in to hard on Jax and she did pretty well, considering her limited interpersonal charm and Jax need to repeatedly hit below the belt. Either Jax has lost touch with reality or she is a complete and total liar, or both. JMHO.

            • lori says:

              NJ does have a great system BUT you have to pro-active and be a REAL advocate for your child. I know this because my friend is dealing with this right now. So instead of being a twitter advocate for autism I think Jac needs to get off her computer and start being Nicholas’ advocate..jmho

            • Beckygrey says:

              We do.

        • amalfi says:

          I don’t think Jac is fat.

          She is preachy, hypocritical and does wag that finger, but I feel bad that most of her weight is wine induced… but I can’t stand her and have probably said not nice things about her, but that weight / bloat is because of her addition to alcohol. Bet money.

          • melthehound says:

            I didn’t say She was fat, I said her fat finger. She does look bloated but that can come from other (woman type) things. Booze? Perhaps. It certainly cannot be helping her.

            • amalfi says:

              I agree booze (bloat or not, addicted or not) is not helping her.

            • contessa says:

              I am going to pipe in here about Jaq and her son. As all have mentioned above, most mothers would kill, fight, die for their child. That 8 month wait for insurance to kick in – give me a break. Most mothers would have hocked things, sold cars, sold homes to get their child help….where are the rest of the Manzo clan when someone needs financial help? Also most mothers would not even give a thought to anything except their child, and would not be involved with all the nasty crazy things going on in the NJ show. Nic should be first and I would have much more respect for Jaq if she came to the reunion and said you know looking back this is all BS, my kid comes first and if I hurt anyone please forgive me and anyone that hurt me it is all unimportant and I don’t care anymore, I need peace as all my attention needs to go to my son. Jaq does not have a real perspective on life. Last point, who records conversations? I have never done anything that crazy in my life?

              • melthehound says:

                I question the validity, of everything, and I do mean everything, that Jacqueline says.

                • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

                  I think after so many seasons, we should ALL question the validity of everything they ALL say as all of them will spin everthing to make themselves not look bad.

                  • melthehound says:

                    I do NMhousewife but, I find myself looking more at the ones who have the most to say with a lot more scrutiny. They protest, FAR too much. They are far too willing to provide evidence for their stories but can never actually do it for one reason or another.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Same here. I tend to do that with CRAZY people, though. And Jac is NUCKING FUTS!

                • PJ says:

                  I agree about Jac. She lives a lavish lifestyle and yet waits eight months to take her child to the doctor. What if the problem had been something like a brain tumor and not autism and that eight month delay had meant life or death. They couldn’t have known the exact diagnosis before taking him to the doctor so they took a big risk by waiting. Now that she has a diagnosis instead of focusing on her children she spends the day tweeting nasty things. If that were my child I would be focusing on his care and none of these other things would mean anything to me. I wouldn’t have the stomach for going after other people.

                  I don’t believe anything Jac says about anything. If she does have texts or tapes that she made illegally how do these texts or illegal tapes prove anything anyway? Unless she has Teresa on tape admitting to a set up then her illegal recordings mean absolutely nothing. Because people can say what ever they want even lie and embellish just like Jac does.

                  I always felt bad for Ashley after watching the way Jac treats her and I mentioned it on this blog long before the Teresa debates began.

                • Exit4 says:

                  I know from a friend of mines experience that getting a diagnosis can take a long time. The big hospital here is CHOP and the wait to see a Developmental Pediatrician can take up to a year! Some child neuros have months long lists too. There’s not a lot of them and if they are “the best” it’s the longest. Plus there is a tin of testing and then treatment plans, the school qualifying tests, IEP’s. It’s a looooong process. So, I can absolutely believe an 8 month wait for an official diagnosis. As far as the insurance goes…it can be a pain, since its specialists and the tests etc….but NJ has an autism initiative that gets a lot covered. Plus you eventually get reimbursed, sometimes. So, I don’t buy the insurance story, since you can get around that. But it is 100% possible to wait 8 months or more to know what’s up! It’s as if she’s not telling the whole story. What a shock!

              • Lisa Renee says:

                Hi Contessa, I too can not reconcile the time lapse from initial concerns to diagnosis. I am not a fan of judging other parents. Many moms here have weighed in on what they were prepared to do as to waste not a single second. When my DD was sweating law school admissions I joked & told her that just like the way Forest Gumps mom got him into a main stream school I was more than prepared to bang my way up the eastern seaboard if it would help. We laughed, but I was sincere & she knew it. Fortunately & much like I suspected her grades & charisma got her in, but she loved the sentiment. Going through that process left little time for anything else, especially twitter. I have stated before, Crack-A-Jack’s approach & actions do not reflect the moms like RR & PP (and many more) that have shared their experiences & frustrations with Drs. & or Insurance companies who have a child with special needs. For every BSC tweet I pray that Nick gets 10 times the attention, stimulation & therapy he needs. Lisa

            • PJ says:

              OK I’ll say it Jac is FAT. I don’t know if it’s from the booze or she’s been eating Kathy’s cannoil kits or if she’s been pouring her booze on the cannoli kits, whatever. Let me qualify this by saying I have no problem with anyone being fat. It’s just the combo of fat and mean and delusional and crazy and tweeting I have an issue with. Just my opinion.

              • melthehound says:

                She does tend to fluctuate a lot on her weighty appearance. Maybe she should lay off of the booze and fillers or botox or whatever she’s using this week.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                PJ – not trying to start a fat war, but I don’t think Jac is fat. She does look heavier than she used to,…but on her fattest day, she looks better than I do on my skinniest day. Aside from all of the work on her face; if you look past it (not even sure what I mean) for her age, I think she is very pretty on the outside. ON THE OUTSIDE.

                • PJ says:

                  If I liked her I would probably think she looks great. As my mother always said ‘pretty is as pretty does.’

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  I don’t want to be involved in a “fat war” either. I do think Jac has put on A LOT of weight since last season. I would consider her “chubby,” but not outright FAT. I notice that most of the weight is concentrated in her face, which is VERY bloated, and her stomach area. Abusing alcohol does often cause a person to gain weight and to bloat in their facial area and to have weight concentrate in the stomach area.

                  I mean, look at Ramona. I think she has an AWESOME figure (especially for someone that is 56 years old!); however, I DO notice that Ramona sometimes seems to have a little extra weight concentrated around her middle and sometimes has a bit of a “pooch.” She says she works out HARD and RELIGIOUSLY (and I BELIEVE her), and she says she watches her diet very carefully (and I BELIEVE her). IMO, the middle/tummy weight that Ramona has is probably due to her excessive alcohol consumption. JMHO.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    Jaq and Kathy have gained a lot of weight, no doubt about it, but the problem is that keep INSISTING ON DRESSING IN TIGHT ASS DRESSES that 21 year olds wear that are super short. If they dressed for their body type nobody would probably say anything. My mom has a phrase, “Just because it fits doesn’t mean you should wear it.”

        • Lulu says:

          Google “duping delight” In her talking head in the season finale. She goes on to say how “disgusting Tre is” how she knows it was her. At that moment pay attention to her facial expression she smirks. When when does “duping delight” they are not conscious of it but they smile or smirk.

          http://www.ted.com/talks/pamela_meyer_how_to_spot_a_liar.html

          Watch this you’ll understand what I mean. Also another tell tale sign is her voice. She raises it to a pitch.

          • melthehound says:

            Lulu, I didn’t know it had a scientific term but I am very well aware of Jac’s mannerisms, especially when she talks about Teresa. I see the same thing in the others as well. Thanks for the link to the video as well.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            This link was GREAT, Lulu. Now, that I think of it, there were MANY intances of Jac doing this “duping delight” thing (where she smirks or smiles after she makes an accusation or statement about Teresa, like she is just so damned proud of herself [probably because she thinks she pulled the lie off]) during the Reunion that I can immediately remember. I’d have to go back over Season 4 episodes to see when and if Jac (and other cast members) did this during the Season.

            According to this Expert in lie detection, that means Jac LIED quite a bit during the Reunion and took PLEASURE in it (the “delight” part of “duping delight”). Let’s face it. I think ALL of them lie about one thing or another. I specifically remember Jac’s “duping delight” during the Reunion. I’m going to have to go back and re-watch Parts 1 and 2 to see if anybody ELSE (including Teresa) did this (I’m sure they all did).

            VERY interesting, Lulu. Thanks. I’m going to save this video in one of my Favorites folders (for future use when it comes to family, friends and the men I date/boyfriends. LOL).

            • PJ says:

              I remember Jac, Kathy and Melissa all doing that smirking/duping delight thing during the reunion. Besides Jac Kathy especially stands out in my mind with the smirking, but they all did it.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Hi Lulu, learning about body language in regards to liars is something that has been an interest to me for the last several years. That was a great link, especially when we try & make sense of the HW’s self serving revisionist talking heads & the reunions. I watch alot of InSession & they always have on body language experts deciphering credibility on the witness stand. Very interesting especially when a defendant is testifying. I have learned so much. The HW smirk that comes to my mind was when Vyle Richards called Brandi angry spice & turned to Andy with a smirk. At the time I thought she was looking for validation on how clever she was. After learning what I have, it was a classic example of the duping delight. John Goodman (DUI manslaughter & adopted girlfriend) was on the stand Friday in his own defense & the body language experts tore him apart, it was mesmorizing & spot on. He will finish his testimony on monday & then be cross examined by prosecution. I can not wait to see how he does on cross & how the experts will weigh in. If this type of thing interests you I suggest watching InSession on monday. There is a whole science to it & broken down in laymen’s terms so people like me can understand it. Have a great day, Lisa

            • Lulu says:

              I love watching ted talks! That one stuck with me. It would amaze you how many people lie and about stupid things. Body language never lies.

  4. Birdwoman says:

    I find Jacq constantly referring to have supposed information given to her by some mutual ‘friend’ so completely high school. I like how she insinuates that she can’t tell us who because that person won’t give her permission. In my opinion, Jacq and Caroline are up there with JZ and Taylor in horribleness…

    • melthehound says:

      I agree with you, and the others. Jacqueline doesn’t have shit because there isn’t any. She’s baked this delusion in her pea sized brain that anything she says is relevant. Further, that it’s true because SHE says so. B*tch, Please.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Jac has many imaginary friends….which is just too sad.

        • lori says:

          I can’t imagine anyone wanting to be friends with her. Can you imagine sharing something personal and private knowing if you do ANYTHING to upset her she’s going to tell anyone willing to listen the details? No thanks!!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            She’s the worst kind of turncoat. She’s a UTI …an Unstable Turncoat with Imaginary friends! I guess that would be a UTIF but UTI sounds better.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            In 2 words, “Hell No!”

            If I were someone that Jac tried to befriend in the future, I’d say, “No thanks! I saw how you broke ‘Girlfriend Code’ CONSTANTLY for a whole damned year. You even started breaking the rules on Twitter before Season 3 ever took place and before Season 4 even began. You were revealing confidences shared with you by a girlfriend during a friendship! THAT is a BIG NO-NO, and it’s a sign of someone who is NOT a good girlfriend — or even a good PERSON for that matter. I also think you LIED about some things that were ALLEGEDLY revealed to you during the friendship just to further your goals of ruining a person’s reputation; of interfering with and helping to ruin a person’s familial relationship; and of negatively affecting a person’s livelihood.”

            Do I need a friend like that? NOPE!!

            If I were one of Jac’s PRESENT friends, I’d do my best not to piss her off (so she would not go around revealing ANY secrets I may have ALREADY told her, and I would NEVER tell her any of my secrets again!!).

            This is why I call her a “loose cannon.”

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Why does Jac record her conversations with her friends, is what I want to know.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          And why would those friends even talk to her now after watching her on the show?

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I guess she wanted to get some “smoking gun” proof that Teresa WAS responsible for “Strippergate.” My thing is THIS, though: why would I necessarily automatically BELIEVE a tape like this? I would say, “Well, maybe this is TRUE, and it proves what Jac is saying.”

          HOWEVER, I would ALSO say to myself, “There is ALSO a POSSIBILITY that Jac schemed with someone Teresa THINKS is her friend, but who really is NOT, to get her to SAY that Teresa was responsible.” Both of those options are a possibility, IMO.

          This is a little bit off the subject, but Jac’s recording of her friends lends credibility to Teresa’s assertions, in her interview with “AllAboutTRH”, that Jac had installed something that would allow her to “track her husband [Chris] on GPS” and also “put a memory card” on his phone “so that she would have access to her husband’s stuff.”

          http://www.allabouttrh.com/allabouttrh-exclusive-teresa-says-chris-has-cheated-on-jac-talks-her-family-and-more/

          The SAME type of person that would RECORD telephone calls would ALSO use other devices to track a person and gather evidence, IMO. IF Teresa is telling the truth about Jac doing this, it could mean that she is ALSO telling the truth about Jac telling her that Chris had cheated on her in the past (Jac called all “bets” off when she constantly, for the past year, revealed Teresa’s alleged secrets. I saw nothing wrong with Teresa REACTING and DEFENDING herself by revealing that. She was finally fighting back, and I do not blame her because Jac deserved it after all of that, IMO).

          And IF it is true that Chris cheated in the past, why in the hell is Jac so concerned about pointing out cheating by Joe Giudice? If the saying “Once a cheater, ALWAYS a cheater” is possibly true, then Jac has NO right to judge Joe Giudice for stepping out when her husband ALLEGEDLY did the SAME damned thing (Here we go with the HYPOCRISY again).

          Jac also, IF it is true that Chris cheated in the past, has NO right to judge Teresa for staying with Joe if she knows that Joe has cheated or IS cheating because I still see Jac living with and married to CHRIS (Oops, here’s that ol’ HYPOCRISY again). Why didn’t SHE leave? I’m not judging her staying AT ALL. I’m sure she has her own very personal reasons for doing so.

          Worry about your OWN marriage and your OWN business, Jac, and STOP worrying about Teresa’s!!!

          • embee says:

            Chris definitely cheated in the past. He was engaged when he met Jacqueline and broke off the engagement to be with her.

  5. djloopsfruit says:

    i had vertigo and then Bells palsey from an ear infection its no joke and i cant believe she was able to tape feeling like that i was in the hospital for over a week (because they gave me a steroid for the bells)

    • plainviewsue says:

      DJ, I never knew that about you. I had such a serious attack of vertigo 10 years that turned out to be the result of an inner ear infection. My diagnosis was vestibular neuritis which left me with a permanent balance disorder & changed my life forever.

      I really felt for Ramona, and she has tweeted about how she felt. I tweeted her to ask if she has been to see an ENT and she tweeted back that she has had appointments.

      Unfortunately, I know a lot about this, and I agree DJ. I don’t know how she dealt with that during a reunion taping no less.

      • djloopsfruit says:

        Sue for me the vertigo only lasted a short spell the bells would have gone away on its own but taken longer w/o the steroid however being a diabetic they had warnings about giving me the steroid yet gave it anyway what it did was raise my blood pressure to dagerous levels so much so,they endded up keeping me in the hospital trying to get both that and my sugar back to normal (it raises that too) mind you they kept giving me the same steroid every day so of course my numbers never went down it got so bad that if i didnt sign myself out i think i would have actually died of a stroke
        the good news now is everythings back to normal
        im so sorry to hear how things got for you
        you never told me any of that on twitter Ramona tweeted to me too but about Aviva LOL
        and you know how i love me some Aviva but now knowing she went thru this i feel really bad she looked like she kind of had a stroke on one side of her face i wonder if she had bells sometimes they dont catch it if its slight mine was severe i looked like phantom of the opera w/o the mask LOL
        Sue are you constantly dizzy ?
        when i first got the vertogo it feltt like my head was spinning non stop for like 35 minutes it made me vomit and thats when i said i have to go to the hospital
        Ill try not to bash Tre to you too oftern
        hugs and kisses

    • ladyballs says:

      omg i lost all hearing in my right ear overnight from a virus. it’s the same virus that causes bells palsey.
      i had horrible vertigo and was so sick i was convinced i was gonna die.
      i wish i called an ambulance. i waited it out all night then my husband drove me to my doctors office. i was in a wheel chair in the waiting area puking in my purse. around the first anniversary of this, i started to have panic attacks and crying uncontrolably…post traumatic stress.
      it was awful.
      i took steroids, too. those roids were the only thing that helped me to feel human again.
      how are you doing now?

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I’m sorry you suffered with ALL of that (the vertigo; the hearing loss; the post-traumatic stress; and the panic attacks), Ladyballs. (((ladyballs)))

      • LaineyLainey says:

        yeah, that’s horrible. Sorry you had to go through that, Ladyballs. Was your hearing loss temporary? I hope so. On a lighter note, after the “roids” – is that when you grew your lady balls?

        • ladyballs says:

          hahhahahahahah….and that’s a bit personal. ;o)
          lost my hearing for good that night. it was 5 years ago oct.6.
          while i was laying in the doctor’s office violently puking and asking the nurse if i was dying, i kept saying i can’t hear outta my right ear. they didn’t know what was wrong with me but they said if the hearing doesn’t come back in a day or so i should see a ear/nose/throat, which i did 2 days later. he examined me and said “you’re deaf in that ear and it’ll never come back.” i was still in a wheelchair at the time and i’m glad because my knees would’ve buckled i was so shocked.
          my mom came to stay with my husband and me because i couldn’t drive or do anything. the three of us went to duke medical clinic for me to see a sudden hearing loss specialist and he confirmed what the ear doctor told me.
          it was just an awful awful time.
          all i hear in that ear is a ssshsshhhhhhhssshhhh sound.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            sounds like a nightmare, LB! So, the virus just had to run its course? How long did it take for the vertigo to go away?

            • ladyballs says:

              yes, the virus attacks and it’s gone. the virus is like a lighting bolt. it just strikes and scorches earth. i got on those roids 2 days after it happened and they really helped me get back on my feet quickly-ish.
              i was sitting up after a couple days. the world was still spinning but not violently. walking was difficult for a week or so. i didn’t drive for 2 weeks.
              i’m so so so so glad i don’t have any balance or vertigo issues. i’d much rather not have my hearing and no balance issues than the other way around.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Yeah, I hear ya. (no pun intended) I understand why you feel that you came away with the lesser of mean and unfair symptoms. At least the vertigo went away and you have your balance. Plus, praise the good Lord, you have hearing from your left ear.

                  i saw the beauty in His design.
                  2 ears are a good thing.
                  it was so funny….when this happened, i would sometimes sleep on my side with my good ear in the pillow. that was the deepest, most sound sleep i’d had in years because it was so quiet that way.
                  my good ear has gotten more sensitive now, so i can hear with my ear in the pillow.
                  another funny thing….it “sounds” in my head like i can hear 360 degrees but i can’t. when something beeps in the house or my phone rings, i hear it perfectly but i can’t locate where the sound is coming from. it’s so frustrating. my phone can be right next to me and i’ll walk all around the room trying to find it. hahahahahh

              • I got a virus that did that about 4 years ago. Knocked me flat on my back for a few days – within a week I was back to work – but it came out of nowhere. Thankfully I didn’t have any long term effects.

              • plainviewsue says:

                It’s truly amazing what a virus can do. I was 46, perfectly healthy, working, my 2 sons were then 12 & 16, and I had the severe vertigo attack in the middle of the night 9/2/02. Never forget that date. Won’t go into everything, but after countless doctors, etc. I fiinally got a diagnosis. Went for vestibular therapy, different meds. I can’t drive & had to stop working. I have good days/bad days. No vertigo (hopefully never again), but times of dizziness/off balance/eye issues.

                I had a bit of a set back about 3 weeks ago after seeing my eye doctor, which is why I couldn’t get on the blog a lot. When I have a real bad day, the computer is difficult.

                I’m fortunate, in that I have a wonderful hubby, kids and a circle of friends that are truly the best.

                When I first found Lynn’s blog 3 years ago, it was a god send. Meeting so many great people and hthen when I discovered twitter, watch out!!!!

  7. amalfi says:

    One thing I get from Carol is her need to be liked.

    She is also not a good hostess — m&ms really? — the brouhaha in St Barths which she just observed and allowed to happen except in talking heads when she looks back on it — uh too late, lady.

    Carole is never going to be a major player — just the snarky sidekick. Too bad.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I still like Carole – she has been an observer from the beginning and wanted to have fun but the cast is not her type of social group. Looking back at the Morocco melee and LuAnn’s hostessing skills…I’d rather go on a trip with Carole. As for not inserting herself in the crazy caused by a demanding Aviva – that’s a hard call because Aviva wanted the vacation to be about herself not about the group.

      • amalfi says:

        I think she is still to snarky to be likeable, and in a more refined and less looney toones way than Jac, she seems like the worst kind of friend to have.

        Though, compared to the rest, I would like to have lunch with her the most… she is interesting and intelligent, as long as we didn’t need to hear her talk about me afterward on tv.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          and she would…. (talk about you)

          • LaineyLainey says:

            just kidding, she probably wouldn’t, because you’re a “civilian” – I imagine her to have really good manners and to be kind of understated…but when she needs to be she can be like a B-2. Flying under the radar.

      • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

        I agree with you on Carole, I would love to go on a trip with her and Heather rather than Luann, Ramona, and Sonja…..mostly not Luann. Ramona I would just let them have their fun and try not to get in their way. A couple of weeks ago when Bravo was showing Scary Island again, I really liked Ramona and Sonja on that trip, but then again they were next to Kelly B so anything they did was normal appearing.

        After this season, I became a fan of Heather and Carole, and had a lot of sympathy for Sonja. Ramona still drives me crazy and Luann is still a snake. Love how Luann defines a mean girl and most of what she says applies to her in most of her seasons! 🙂

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      She is trying so much to be like Bethenny with the one liners ,yet unlike B she is never self-deprecating and acts likes she is above it all. Meanwhile she is in the show, promoting a book and in her blogs hawking the old book that she doesn’t want to talk about on the show. This bitch thinks we don’t see thru her ass. She’s just as desperate as the others but highlights their actions so we’ll forget about hers.

      She tries to defend her rude comments in the THs as part of the job, yet the women were upset that she didn’t display ANY of those venomous traits during taping. THAT’S what shocked the HWs. Then it continues on her blogs every week. When confronted the bitch backpeddles, yet when out of sight of the HWs, she once again becomes full of bravado and makes her ugly snide comments. Is it the puff, puff give that emboldens her?

      What pothead goes around talking about others drinking problems? A high bitch! LOL
      Loved it when she twittered who would want Ramonja’s liver and Ramona tweeted back she’d rather drink than be a pothead, which shut Carole’s FireMarshallBill’s ass down!

        Amba ya killin’ me!!!! LOLOLOL!!! My favorite line: “This bitch thinks we don’t see thru her ass” or maybe this: “What pothead goes around talking about others drinking problems? A high bitch!” As creative and colorful as your writing is…there is truth to it. However, Carole doesn’t bother me so much. But I have to give you props for your funny comments!

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Thanks LL. She annoys me because she’s worse than the others when it comes to product pushing and mud slinging.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Amber-I love this comment!!!! If Carole would have made just one little joke about herself-i would have liked her!!!!

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          Jill, she can’t joke about herself as she probably thought it would open the floodgates. Come on she was calling Lulu ‘pumpkin head’ while hers looked like a matchstick. Lit and unlit. LOL

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I liked her back then when she called LuLu pumpkin..I thought she was clever…at the end of the season i just felt like she thought the HW thing was a joke…and the viewers were too stupid to get it.

      • ladyballs says:

        a high bitch hahahhaahhah
        love it!

        • Called A Princess... says:

          A pothead is someone that smokes pot a lot. Ramona does not have proof of that. She is not a close friend of Carole’s. Ramona is a reactive loose cannon when she feels attacked. She is not above lying. We see her drinking all the time, on camera. Carole can not defend herself against the comment because anything she might say will make her look guilty. I think we all have been accused of things that were untrue at one time or another.

          Carole is different from any other housewife in the history of the show, in that she is not prone to on camera, melodramatic interpersonal melt downs. She does not set people up and she does not misrepresent the truth. We complain about overwrought drama and misguided reality, but when we view someones truth, we seem to not like that much either. Carole spoke her truth in the talking heads, and I found it a lot less phony posturing from her, then from Ramona and Sonja and LuLu, because they all have been at it, a lot longer and know truly how to play to the audience and Bravo production. JMHO.

          • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

            I agree 100% with what you wrote.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            ITA with everything you just said. I think that, when Carole found it important enough, she DID tell someone something face-to-face. She sat down and told LuAnn about her displeasure with LuAnn asking her friends to borrow a dress or two. She also expressed the fact that she was offended with LuAnn’s use of the term Indian to her face (regardless of whether or not her opinion on the matter was CORRECT, she DID tell LuAnn to her face that she was offended).

            I think that Carole thinks that much of this stuff is petty (just like many of us in the viewing audience do), and it is not serious enough to get into a fight or a disagreement over. However, she sees no problem LAUGHING about or being SARCASTIC about some of the foolishness she sees going on around her when she is being interviewed.

            And, I think in Carole’s social circle, people do not usually just call someone a DRUNK unless they have a VERY CLOSE relationship (even then, I think she might say, “I think you might need an intervention, Sweetie!” or “I’m worried about your drinking.” — NOT, “I think you are a DRUNK!!” like Housewives past). I mean, maybe, in her mind, she observed that Ramona drinks like a DAMNED FISH (Everybody knows I LOVE Ramona, but the truth is the truth), but she did not feel the need to just walk up to her face-to-face and on-camera say, “Ramona, I think you are a LUSH!” I mean, they were JUST getting to know each other.

            I think some face-to-face things need to be reserved for a time when one has developed more of a personal relationship with a person. This season, these cast members were Carole’s CO-WORKERS. She had not yet developed PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS with them.

            I mean, I didn’t make it a practice to go around calling my co-workers SLUTS (Some were); DRUNKS (Some were); CRAZY (Some were); a lot DUMBER than they actually THOUGHT they were/not as SMART as they THOUGHT they were (These were the ones who loved to question everything and argue every point. I FINALLY had to tell a paralegal — who I REALLY liked — “Please stop questioning EVERY DAMNED THING I state or ask you to do. We are not in competition. We are trying to get a job done. Yes, you are VERY smart. I appreciate your abilities as a paralegal. However, I have the J.D. You DO NOT. Please KNOCK IT OFF so our working relationship can be a lot smoother. We win when we work as a team and trust each other’s JUDGMENT in certain areas. You stay in YOUR lane, and I will stay in MINE.”); SOCIOPATHS (Some were); and/or LIARS (Some were). Maybe Carole took the same approach (the Co-Worker Approach) in some ways, and it will be different next season because she has now developed PERSONAL relationships with them. JMHO.

      she offered to order pizza but no one wanted that ,now i on the other hand would have been happy with that

  8. RealHousewifeVA says:

    Why does Jac care SO much if Teresa knew about Kim D setting Melissa up, but totally blew off the FACT that Melissa had contacted and conspired with Danielle. She actually got pissed that Teresa even cared so much.

    • amalfi says:

      My favorite moment was how Melissa nearly went through the stratosphere when T started talking about how Mel was dating her brothers best friend first – don’t know what point she was making, but Melissa shrieked at a pitch usually only canines can hear, grabbed T and distracted her (poor T and her pea brain attention span) to the point became about how T grabbed Kathy’s face.

      What the hell is Melissa trying to hide — hahah.. most of it so irrelevent (stripper – who cares, golddigger – again, if both parties are happy, who care — used to date someone else — uh who care??) I guess Melissa cares most. Intriguing why.

      • melthehound says:

        Aww, c’mon, amalfi…. MeGo is as pure as the driven snow and everyone knows it. Just ask her, By the same token that her husband, Poison Tarzan Marco, is an ‘angel from god’. Just ask him.

      • ATLnNYC09 says:

        Ah yes, Cancun days (as Tre calls it). Wonder why Andy didnt ask more about that? It sure sent Melissa into ape s*it mode. She was mad and pressed that Tre spilled those beans. Id like to know more about Cancun days myself. It seems way more interesting than arguing stripper semantics.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          IMHO – all the Melissa dirt is being saved for next season when the “big dogs” come out to play and she is in the takedown seat….

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I think from one of the previews I saw, there will be a LITTLE attention paid to Cancun in Part 3 of the Reunion. I thought I remembered something about Joe Giudice saying either something like, “What about Cancun, Melissa?” or “Melissa, how did you and Joey REALLY meet?” and he somehow mentions that in connection with Cancun.

          I could be wrong, though. I don’t feel like going back through the previews. I’ll just watch tomorrow.

          There is supposedly a lot of “twitter talk” about “Cancun” and the things Melissa ALLEGEDLY did there. The “talk” leads me to believe that some of those things were not-so-wholesome and maybe a bit sordid. Maybe that’s why Melissa went apesh*t and started screaming like a banshee over Teresa so no one could hear what Teresa was going to say about it. *Shrug*

      • djprincessc says:

        Teresa was making the point about it because it destroys the whole Joe and I fell in love the moment we saw each other story, Its funny because Teresa said that Melissa was dating his friend and I actually already knew that because the famewhorgas website had a whole article about how Joe and Melissa REALLY met and how she dated a few of his friends and basically settled for him when she realized he had money, but in no way was he her first choice. Obviously this is true because of the reaction that Melissa had. lol.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Joey was Melissa’s alleged 3rd choice. I can not really blame her. He seems brain damaged or is that the side effects, of coming down from roid rage? She treats him like her pet beast of burden. IMO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            She sometimes seriously looks like she does NOT want him touching her. And it’s like, I almost see a look of revulsion on her face before she realizes that the cameras are there, and she changes her expression a bit. I don’t know. Maybe what looks to me like disinterest and revulsion are HER way of showing attraction and passion. I mean, people are DIFFERENT. *Shrug*

          • djprincessc says:

            Agreed!! And he’s a fool for marrying her.

    Jacqueline is nuts. I hope the rumors are true and she is not returning for season 5. She is BEYOND obsessed about Teresa and events that took place over 1 year ago. Its sad because she has two small children that really need her time and her energy. Im not saying that Chris should demand she stop using twitter but I cant believe he is so compliant in her madness. I hate to say it but she is 100 times worse than Ashlee and her facebook/twitter season 3 issues. The only thing is that Tre isnt biting. She isnt engaging Jac in her madness and im sure that burns Jac even more. Is their any other reason, besides the booze, that could contribute to this continuation of madness? I know alcohol can make you crazy but damn.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      The new math:
      Denial
      plus alcohol
      plus a personality disorder
      plus hate
      plus vengefulness
      plus imaginary friends
      plus conspiracy theories
      = Jacqueline Laurita

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I think you need to throw a BIG OL’ HEAPING PILE OF GUILT into that equation, Lainey. People CAN go crazy from GUILT. IMO, there is a part of Jac, somewhere deep down inside, that feels guilty for selling Teresa out in some way. I could be wrong, but this is what I honestly think (Could she feel guilty for participating in the setup? Could she feel guilty for betraying her former friend’s confidences so many times? Could she feel guilty for conspiring with the others to hurt a former friend? Maybe the answer to some or all of these questions is “YES.”).

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Yeah, detox. Guilt. She has to be experiencing guilt. If I were her, I’d be feeling really guilty for what she did to Ashley. I truly hope she doesn’t one day also experience guilt for the way she is working with Nicolas. This is her chance to do the right and decent thing. This is it, Jac.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            I think she might feel guilty for the way she has treated a number of people in her past. Teresa is just the latest in a long line of backstabbing games that Jax has been involved in. She seems to enjoy the process very much, and so does Ashley and so does her mother and the list goes on. Jax is not a very good friend. IMO.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      She is doing a SWF Joisey style! It’s like she’s obsessed with Tre and won’t get over the fact that they’re no longer friends. She knows alot of Tre’s skeletons and knowing how self-centered Tre is, she probably wasn’t even HEARING ANY of the secrets that Jac was giving her. I DO THINK she told Tre about Carolwhines TummyTuck because even though they’ve known each other for years, DonCaro wouldn’t be broadcasting that to her friends.
      I remember once when DaDon said she wasn’t like the others. Didn’t act like, dress like, or have the same interest as them. She didn’t even feel she belonged. That was before she became the matriarch of the clan and went after Danielle. This is what makes me doubt the Tre claim that Carolinebacker said Jac was a stripper too. Is it a lie, or was CPesci comiserating with Tre on having strippers in the family? Was it Caro or could it have been Tre’s great friend Dina?

        Hahaha ATL. You gave me a good laugh. 😀

      • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

        There are so many good Sunday night shows going on now (Walking Dead, reunion of Jersey of course, Once upon a Time, Amazing Race) I wish theyh were spaced out a little more though. Anyone watching Breaking Amish? Its of course proven to be totally fake but i’;ve decided to finish out the season which I think is just one more episode. TLC really destroyed their credibility with that show.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          yes, nmh – i have seen some episodes of breaking amish. I had heard about the stories about it being fake. So, is that true? Is it completely fake? Are those kids even really amish?

          • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

            Apparently the majority if not all of them had social media sites and all have been out of the Amish community longer what they are pretending on the show. That Jeremiah guy who acts like he has a Amish girfriend and was hiding from the Bishop’s wife doesn’t even live in the community, the girl was an actress who also has been out of the Amish lifestyle, and he has been out since the age of 19, married, divorced, has 3 kids, and is a deadbeat dad to boot! Also he is actually like 32 years old. Rebecca and Abe 2 of the others on the show act like they just met as they leave the community and their facebook page with found by others who did a better job researching than TLC showing pics of them both with their baby. Apparently theyve been living together since she left her husband and had a child together. Sabrina another girl is also divorced, and the other girl who wants to be a model has been a model for a while as she had modeling picts on the internet and apparently has a record as well as Abe. There is more but that gives you a fairly good picture of how TLC really dropped the ball with this show. There was a news team back in the midwest that was doing a story on this and interviewed Jeremiah’s ex-wife as she was outspoken at first, and the rumor is TLC offered her money to keep quiet and since she has given out any more interviews. They are apparently supposed to address some of this on the show and have mentioned one of the girl’s drunkeness charges down in Florida. TV gasm has good funny recaps on the show and the commenters add a lot to the info that is out there as well.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I heard it was fake and scripted too.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I agree with you about so many good shows being crammed into Sunday night. Like you, I wish they would space these shows out a bit more throughout the rest of the week.

    • Lulu says:

      I really really really really really really wanted to like “walking dead.” It’s the only genre of that nature. But the unnecessary complicated drama is KILLING IT!! I watch it but I fast forward through majority of it. My hope for this season is that they cut out all this dramatic B.S.

  12. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I watched the preview clip and when Teresa was telling her brother that her mom and dad love him and they never talk about him, of course Jac has to jump in and get involved “YES YOU DO!” OMG someone put this b*tch out of her misery. Seriously, even IF Teresa is talking to her own mom and dad about her brother (what a crazy concept, huh?) 1. How the hell would you know since you haven’t even seen her in a year? and 2. JUST SHUT UP! Let this family try to work things out instead of your crazy ass being involved. I would bet good money that lots of the current Laurita family feuds probably center around this one crazy alcoholic shit-stirrer. Her daughter was so on point last season when she said her mom has to be involved in everyone else’s drama.

    I really hate when other people get involved in personal family issues that are not their own. I’m so glad Andy and Chris told her to butt out.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      She is hellbent on destroying Teresa’s marriage and family. And if she knew (via her illegal taped phone conversation) that Teresa was going to set up Melissa then why didn’t she just tell Melissa then instead of waiting to run around like a chicken without a head at the PFS saying it was a set up? Now she is tweeting she will produce one last epic manifesto blog of “truth”….why? Does she really believe that viewers feel she has any credibility left or that her terrible behavior can be justified?

      • melthehound says:

        Please. She wouldn’t know sh!t if she had a mouthful.

      • amalfi says:

        Jac…. she is pretty much just sad and boring.

        1) Boring in the sense she is grasping at straws for relevance. not going to happen….
        2) Sad – because watching her mentally breakdown for our entertainment is not fun. She brings it on herself, but it IS sad.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Here’s a tissue for ya. Here’s a tissue for me. I have a whole box here. (just joshing with you, amalf).

          You are right, it is sad. Unfortunately, Jac is not sad (based on her hatefully obsessive behavior), if she were showing signs of sadness it would mean she was truly processing her baby’s diagnosis, which would mean that there would be a hope that she is approaching a place of acceptance which could lead her to a place where she could be the kind of parent he needs her to be.

          • Nancy says:

            Hi LL,
            Emotionally I think she’s a teenager. Chronic drinking does that.

          • Powell says:

            Huh Lainey since you said “she would be processing her baby’s diagnosis”, maybe that’s what she doesn’t want to do. She doesn’t want to face it. One minute she’s tweeting about autism then the next minute she’s tweeting about T. Hmm. Maybe this is a coping mechanism. She’s hiding behind the truth about Nicholas and also the bankruptcy.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              She can’t get past the first step …denial. It is clear from her behavior. You’re right, I believe that It is a coping mechanism. Have you ever met someone who won’t take their meds? They can’t face reality. Sometimes reality is unbearably painful. It is very scary for them. Denial can help us all get through the day.

    • Powell says:

      Realhousewifeva it’s funny how you and other’s have pointed out that Ashley said Jac likes to be in everyone’s drama. So many of us said how spoiled Ashley is, how lazy she is when we should’ve been talking about how crazy Jac is.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Powell, I always saw Jac undermining Ashley’s development and confidence. Jac is so disturbed that she didn’t realize she was doing it WHILE she was doing it. The way she complained about Ashlee on camera about her grades, running to the Manzo’s due to Ash getting an undeserved car from Chris, when she took her for a photo shoot and kept humiliating Ashley (when she- jac- was trying to “direct” the shoot), her constant passive aggressive behavior toward Ashley, Jac taunting her, mocking her, needling her…and then only being nice to Ashleee when she misbehaved (when Ashley would fight with Danielle). And then out of the other side of her mouth…Ashley, be disciplined, get a job, be successful, believe in yourself….when Jacqueline doesn’t do any of those things. She is undisciplined, doesn’t contribute much to her family, doesn’t think highly enough of herself to stop obsessing with Teresa and twitter.

        My daughter is close in age to Ash so red flags were going up for me with regards to Jac and the damage she was doing to her own daughter. It was alarming to me!!!

        People like Wendy Williams say that after your kid is 18, regardless of what your parents did to you, that you should take responsibility and that you can’t blame your parents anymore. But in Ashley’s case? I think Wendy is wrong. Ashley was raised by an unstable bully. Jac bullied her own daughter. She was more than willing to sully her own daughter’s name and her reputation to create a storyline for herself. As Ashley grew up, I wonder if Jac saw her as competition. Did she have to take note of her own aging as her own little girl was growing into her womanhood? Jac was not to be outdone so she just killed Ashley’s spirit. So while Ashley is responsible for her own life,…she was hardly prepared for it. I hope that she will get herself some quality therapy. It will not be easy because she will have to face the truth about her relationship with her mom. That will be incredibly painful but she has to process that in order to grow up and be of any good to herself.

        • princesspindy says:

          Your comment is so right on the money. I work with a lot of women who are trying to take responsibility and in that process need to look back and see how they were raised so that they can work thru the damage. Jaq raised a lot of red flags for me also. She did the same thing when she was reading the book to Gia. She is so stunted in her maturity it is sad.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Thanks, PP! Oh yeah, the reading of the book to Gia…that really went all over me…I actually felt worse for Ashley in that moment because I knew Gia would and could escape Jac, Gia’s reaction was that of a child who was not accustomed to being put down and humiliated by grownups. Lucky girl. She looked pretty shocked. Whereas Ashley never seemed to show her pain. why? It was just another day in the life,…probably.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            By the way, kudos to you for helping people with their recovery. (((PP)))

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I wanted to SLAP Jac when I saw her say that in the preview. Her own husband and EVEN Andy had to tell her, “Don’t get involved, Jacqueline!!”

      I’m sorry. IMO, there is NO way Teresa could have “stolen” her parents from Joey (Hmmm…where did I hear that “stolen” word about Teresa before? Oh yeah, in one of Melissa’s recent US Mag articles where she claimed Teresa “stole” Sunday. RIDICULOUS!!).

      If Joey’s parents are not around Joey and his family as much, why does he not even consider the POSSIBILITY that it may be their OWN choice, which has NOTHING AT ALL to do with TERESA? Why is she to be blamed for that (and EVERY DAMNED THING ELSE!!)?

      I have bitched to my parents about one of my brothers in the past and about some of the ways he has hurt my feelings. He has also bitched to them about me in the past too for some of those same things (For some reason, we no longer bitch about or talk about each other to our parents AT ALL anymore. Go figure.).

      My parents NEVER chose a side. They maintained their relationships withh the BOTH of us and let us work it out between ourselves.

      I HAVE heard of some parents distancing themselves from a child because of the SPOUSE of their child. I am not SAYING that is the case here. They don’t need Teresa to tell them things about Melissa in order to feel the need to do this. Teresa’s mother watches the show. She sees what is being said about and done to her flesh and blood daughter. Maybe she does not appreciate it.

      And, although the father allegedly does NOT watch the show (because they do not want to upset him due to his poor health and bad heart), he could have his OWN issues with his SON for his SON’S OWN actions. I mean, Joey acted like a damned LUNATIC at that christening! It was embarrassing. Then, he was screaming at his father loudly in Italian for everybody at the christening (and in the nation due to the CAMERAS) to hear. I remember his father looking VERY displeased with that, and I think he told Joey to “go and run to your Mommy like you always do!” What did THAT have to do with TERESA?

  13. LaineyLainey says:

    Heather really grew on me during the season. However, I still don’t like the way that she has a way of lecturing others, namely Luann at the reunion. She says that Lu can’t take criticism, and that if you don’t agree with her then, blahblahblah. Heather is not exactly all happy when she receives criticism either. She gets really whiny, hasn’t anyone else noticed that?? She did that during the toaster oven crap, whine, whine, whine…she did it at the reunion when Luanne said to Aviva that she liked Aviva’s explanation bettter. “why did you say you like Aviva’s explanation better???(whiny voice)” Why can’t Lu like Aviva’s explanation better than Heather’s? Sure Aviva’s explanation was more kind toward Lu, I don’t blame Lu for liking Aviva’s take on things re: the designer issue.

    Heather can’t take criticism either (most of us don’t respond well to it) and she doesn’t listen, or she seems to shut down if someone disagrees with her (as many human beings tend to do). I find it slightly self-serving and hypocritical of Heather to spend so much of her Bravo blog “correcting” Luann, when she is guilty of the same. She is SO sensitive to criticism that she left Ramona out of the London trip because Ramona dared to criticize her (about talking too much).

    When Heather feels she has been wronged (i.e. criticized) her revenge is served with a great big GRIN on her face. Because, why? Oh yeah, because she has good manners. She’ll probably find a way to get back at Lu for disagreeing with her on the reunion. Perhaps her whole “concern” about the pirate is her veiled REVENGE only this time her vengefulness is cushioned with “concern” for Jacques. Revenge served with Compassion (for Jacques). Mixed with a big dose of whinyness.

    With all of that said, do I hate Heather? NO! not at all. Am I now in love with Lu? NO! not at all! Just pointing out that Ms. Yummie Tummie can be vengeful and whiny. So, she’s not perfect. So what? No one housewife in NY is “better” than the other. I do give Ramona points for her honesty, however. She’s a hard pill to swallow and I wouldn’t want to have to work with her, but she is who she is, “inelegant” at times, but that’s Ramona.

    • BB says:

      I agree Lainey, Lainey. Every one of them have had things about them I liked this season and didn’t like this season. The only one who really got on my last nerve was Adiva, but she brought the crazy and you always need a little crazy. I enjoyed this season of NY. It was just enough without being too much. There were teams here and teams there, but there was no specific season-long team mentality like the Blondes vs. Brunettes of season 4.

      You spoke of Yummie Mummie. I have memberships w/2 online discount companies which I’ve yet to buy anything from yet. Beyond the Rack & idelli. Yummie was being sold there a couple of weeks ago & Bs Skinny Girl pieces have been on there also. Both didn’t have too much of a discount, $5-$10 off.These discounters sell designer clothes, jewelry i.e. Burberry, Prada. So I guess they are in good company.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I’ve grown to like Heather too, Lainey, but you have made some excellent points and pointed out things about her that I would not have noticed on my own.

      I DO think she was right on the money when she called LuAnn out for refusing to acknowledge or accept any criticism. Throughout the entirety of her time on RHONY, one of the things that has GRATED on my nerves the MOST (in addition to her EXTREME passive-aggressiveness) about LuAnn is her COMPLETE denial of EVER doing anything or EVER being WRONG! We ALL mess up as human beings, LuAnn! You are NOT super-human. Just OWN it sometimes!! DAMN!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Well, thanks, D! Lu does look a little shell-shocked with Heather and Carole calling her out on her lack of “class” – – – haha! Friend jumping, one-upping, playing with pirates. stirring the pot, etc. When she was on the Brunette team, it seemed they really protected her from on camera criticism.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I think she is shocked and more hurt by Carole’s criticism of her than any of the others because Carole, like it or not, IS royalty, while LuAnn is simply nobility (That whole PRINCESS trumps COUNTESS thing).

          The “Countess” was able to get away with some of her behavior in the past by claiming that this was the way “nobility” (upper class) handled things; therefore, because she is a member of nobility and knows how to (in her mind) behave better than any of them, she felt like she did not even have to listen to any criticism lobbed her way by the other “peons” on the cast, because they had NO right, as “peons,” to judge her. Some of the others just accepted what she said as true because they had never been or really known any other members of nobility.

          LuAnn CANNOT pull that card with Carole. I know Carole has her faults, but, like it or not, LuAnn knows that Carole is not only royalty, but also related by marriage to “American Royalty,” the Kennedy’s (Their bad behavior and sordid headlines aside, the Kennedy’s have been considered the closest thing America has to a “royal family” for a long time).

          So, I think criticism coming from Carole PARTICULARLY STINGS the Countess (because Carole kinda makes LuAnn and some of her behavior look “common.” She wanted to borrow a damned dress because she is CHEAP. Carole’s pointing out to her that “Life & Style” is NOT Vogue and that Naeem dresses the likes of Michelle Obama and not “the LuAnn’s” of the world were big “Oh, SNAPS!!” in that kind of social circle, IMO. She basically said, “LuAnn, you are not big enough of a celebrity or a big enough member of royalty/nobility to consider your wearing of one of his dresses to be a FAVOR to him!! In fact, your wearing one of his dresses could CHEAPEN his brand the same way the Burberry brand was cheapened in the U.K. when all of the ‘chav’s [British slang for the lower classes] started wearing it!”).

          • amalfi says:

            Sorry, for me royalty is when you have a lot of money and property and a kingdom and a big coronation.

            Beyond that it is a joke. Bunch of hangers on to a title they are truly several times removed from. European royalty (other than England and the Queen’s immediate family) is a joke.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Oh, I agree. Carole does NOT make a big deal about it.

              But LuAnn DOES. That is why I think she finds Carole’s criticism of her particularly stinging and hurtful to her.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Lainey, LuLu in the past has never needed any ones help to slip into self denial. It has always been her pattern to deny any wrong doing, no matter what. Big or small crime, with her it never really mattered. I think that is what Heather was talking about. I will say it again, Heather is another one that I think helps return the franchise to a certain normalcy. When is complaining whining? When the subject is something that is either played out or the viewership has no interest in it. Heather has a lot to say but her needs seem basic and not seeped in the hyper super- unnatural. The same can not be said for Ramona, Sonja or LuLu. And the whole issue about the trip to London is the fact that Ramona is rude and has a history of attacking other peoples brands on the show. In normal circumstances a professional has the right to weight out the pros and cons of having someone like Ramona on their business trip. I think we have all had people say really awful things to us and apologize, and then say the same thing, a day later, in a different way. Ramona found someone that had no problem saying, “no, this behavior will not work with me.” We as viewers seem to want to be able to say, “no, you are on this show so you do not have the right to set your own standard.” I would prefer to see more standard setting from these reality characters, before its too late. JMHO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Perhaps it’s just her speaking style..I have a whine detector, due to my job, I think. Listen for it, if you ever watch this season in reruns,…I think I hear whining. Maybe I’m the only one. But sometimes I think I’m channeling Ms. Cleo so who knows?

            I know you like Heather and you always have even when many (including myself) were up in arms that she excluded Ram from that trip. I kind of felt like she was breaking the rules. haha!! I was forgetting that the number one rule is to create drama. She probably honestly wanted to exclude Ram from the trip, I believe that was her genuine desire, but this time the producers encouraged her decision rather than add a weirdo to the trip like when Nene invited Marlo. Phaedra was saying “I didn’t invite her”…but truth be told, it’s a Bravo trip, Bravo decides who goes and who doesn’t. Now I know Jill chose not to go to Scary Island, she was trying to undermine the other women, thinking if I don’t go, what kind of trip will it be. I refuse to film with my enemies, maybe they’ll get fired, cause what will they do without Jillzy? Oh pooh…I’ve gone off on a tangent.

    • Lady Chatterley says:

      Yes, Heather is very quick to take advantage of “teachable moments” w/the other ladies, but appears to be completely blind to the same behavior in herself.

  14. ladyballs says:

    when i decided to leave the comment section, i said i would still read the blog. i also said i wasn’t mad or hurt when i left the comment section, but i didn’t want to deal with crazytown. i was called stupid that day. i continued to post throughout the day to see what the reaction to that “stupid post” would be. shockingly, some posters said i attacked the person who called me stupid. that’s insane, hence crazytown.

    i posted i was leaving for a reason. a couple days prior, i had appreciated tin man giving his/her thoughts about the blog. since i was new here, i didn’t know if i was getting an impression of the comment section that was bogus. when i read tin man’s comments– along with a couple other people’s thoughts who felt like tin man– i knew i wasn’t alone. they felt the same way i did and they had been here much longer than me. so, i posted my thoughts the day i left for anyone else who felt like me and maybe then they wouldn’t feel alone or confused either. i did not post i was leaving in an effort to encourage begging.

    noticing the piece about the blog on the blog from yesterday, i knew i wanted to make a comment about my situation.

    i did make a post or two in the days after leaving because the reunion had just aired. while i was here in the comments, i decided to read down and noticed comments about my decision to post i was leaving and the issue of begging someone to stay. i know all of these comments were not about me, but i wanted to set the record straight with regard to me and my actions. and i just did.

    btw, since i’m here….
    just watched the rosie interview with chaunce. oooof. rosie said the same thing i said about teresa. she was told she was great and the world revovled around her in her house as she was growing up. i’m an only child and i’ve got nothing on teresa.
    ;o)

    • Was there anything more in the end of that interview? My sound cut out when she was talking about how spoiled Tree and Joey were as kids. I felt like Rosie was speaking from her heart – not in a mean way at all – just talking about how different she was from her cousins and her sister – who only thought about clothes and purses and stuff like that.

        she talked about first meeting melissa…she said melissa and joe came to her house and her impression was melissa was sweet.
        she said she doesn’t know if melissa was ever a stripper.
        she said she didn’t think the show changed teresa but she does think teresa changed joe. she said she always liked joe.
        she said caroline is funny not mean or a bully and gave the example of when tre changed couches caroline said “oh hello” in a jokey way.
        rosie was very kind when talking about all of them.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Ladyballs, I’ve missed you. You’ve explained yourself and I hope it makes you feel better about everything so that you’ll stay. You obviously miss it, and you are missed….so, I’ll go out on a limb and say…welcome back!! Now stay.,

    • ATLnNYC09 says:

      Ok Ms. Lady, I realize that I dont read the blog everyday but I have noticed that this is about the 3rd time that you have threatened to leave the blog. I think its fine and good your back but threatening to leave is kind of immature. I apologize if you were called stupid and dont think that is acceptable behavior.

      This is just a reality show, its not worth taking things that seriously. People have different opinions and you have to be able to agree or disagree about things and move on. Its fine if you leave and come back but these exit manifesto’s are a little unnecessary.

      I left Lynn’s blog for a few months when she had it because I was annoyed at the constant talk about Jill Zarin. I didnt write a long angry message explaining my need to leave, reasons why I am leaving, etc., I just left. If you do that, it makes it easier if and when you want to return.

    • Powell says:

      Ladyballs I’m sorry your comment you posted was called stupid. That’s not a nice thing for anyone to say. We all may not agree w/everything that each other says & that’s ok but not to comment that our post is stupid. I appreciate what everyone says so I’m glad you’re back.

  15. AZGirl says:

    Ok I am not on Twitter so correct me if I am wrong. TEB got a tweet from Frostedyummies about TEB and a friend (WSL?) and getting dissed by Ramona at an event. TEB has never tweeted frostedyummies and the information that was tweeted would only be known by JZ? That is how JZ got busted? I am so facinated by Jill’s truly narcisstic behavior. Where is Carole when you need her?

    • Nancy says:

      Who’s TEB?

    • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

      To be fair, I remembering hearing about this happening to TEB back on a podcast Lynn was doing with prettyplusmore in July. TEB called in and recounted the story to explain how she is not a big fan of Ramona, but to me it was suspicious that frostedyummie would know this or have listened to the podcast if she was a fan of JZ, BUT not impossible. that twitter account was/is pretty vile.

    • I was on twitter that night, or the next day, and since I follow TEB, I saw all her comments. I thought it was cool that TEB went to the premiere parties with WSL. TEB was invited by Aviva, as TEB made friends with Aviva ( I think on twitter). TEB tweeted that Ramona was rude to her. TEB also came on the blog & commented here. I don’t recall what she said on the blog or in her tweets, but I do remember TEB talking about how she thought Ramona was rude. Well, now we know why Ramona may have been rude to TEB, since TEB & Aviva are friends & have been tweeting to each other, before the season started & while it aired. When TEB asked for a photo with Ramona, Ramona ignored her or said no…can’t remember which. Anyway, this frosted doofus person has been tweeting vile stuff, about the RHONY ladies. Somehow TEB thinks it’s JZ but we haven’t heard exactly why yet. Anyone can look at tweets. You can even go back in time, as long as you didn’t delete a tweet, it’s still out there forever.

      I often forget that many people are reading this blog that never comment. It’s also fascinating to see long lost posters, even from years ago, back on the fringe. The drama never ends, does it? MM tweeting JZ is just the frosting on dummies’ cupcakes, so to speak.

    And I agree with all of you – Jac is a sick woman. Her daughter Ashley is probably so grateful that she was shoved out of that nest. I wouldn't want to be friends with Caroline Radziwill. To me she seems like a sophisticate who tries to deny that she's a sophisticate and it's just not attractive. She wrote a book about having sex as a widow and had a "baby shower" for her book. Oh yawn. But do I want JZ back? Hell no!

  23. Lady Chatterley says:

    Carole’s revealing here where she’s got it wrong. She’s not an observer on this show, she’s a participant. But, approaching it in this detached way, above it all, outside looking in, is insulting to the other women, and comes across as disingenuous to the viewers. She’s not a narrator – she’s one the HWs. To pretend otherwise just makes her appear to be a snob and the audience will quickly lose patience w/that.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      This is perfect-she is not a narrator!!!!

    • Yes – it was fun for a while because she was saying what we were all saying – but then it got old, because she should have been saying it to their faces.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        She did tell Lu to her face (albeit in a joking way) to stop one-upping her and she seriously confronted her about designer-gate and about the word “indian”. I was actually surprised about how upfront she was with Luann. She didn’t hide her annoyance. However, she did not confront anyone else that she talked about in her talking heads especially Sonja and Ramona.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          The talking heads are done long after the original shoot. I think she was trying sometimes to be funny, and maybe it did not work so well. I am guessing that really accomplished women should really not even attempt to be on a fake reality show because it will help make them look fake and snobby. Also I think that viewers are not really comfortable when new characters give the stink eye to the established characters, even if it is the blink of an eye. JMHO.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Lots of truth to what you said, CAP.I’m glad you said “stink eye” and that you didn’t say “evil eye” or this could have turned into a cake defilement.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      It appears that Carole didn’t really understand what her role was because she is not a “housewife” nor does she have children. Should she return next season IMO, she will participate more and while she doesn’t like confrontation I’m betting she will get in the mix.

    • ladyballs says:

      you nailed it, lc, nailed it.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Great way to explain the HW that is Carole. This contradiction (part of the cast but acting like she’s above it all) is what people and her castmates are having a problem with…she’s not a narrator. Very good, lady C.

      I think I’m being forgiving of her because I’m comparing her shortcomings with the shortcomings of some of the other housewives…like say, Aviva? I prefer, Carole. The whole Jersey cast, I like Carole better. The OC witches, again I’ll take Carole over any of them. With that being said, yes, Carole does have shortcomings too and it’s interesting that with all of her gifts she joked/wrote herself into a corner in the eyes of the tv viewers and her castmates. Can she work her way back out of that corner, I wonder? She’s so smart, I think she can, I think she can….choo choo!!!

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Lainey, Carole is not perfect, but I bet in a few hundred years, she will be. JMHO.

  24. Powell says:

    I’m watching the NY reunion. Heather grew on my throughout the season so I like her just like I like Sonja, Ramona and Carole. But she gets on my nerves at times just like they do also. So Heather can get on my nerves but she sure knew how to make Lu shut up. Lu shut her trap when Heather said “unless she hears what she likes to hear then she doesn’t want to hear it. That’s bullshit”.

  25. Powell says:

    Aviva’s foundation or powder she chose was to light. It made her look pasty.

  26. WindyCityWondering says:

    What is with Lisa Vanderpump and the skanky nasties opportunists she has around her – first the houseboy and now a waitress going after her money. As for the waitress’ lawsuit – no mention of a police report and excuse me but rape is a pretty charge/accusation.

    • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

      If you continue to watch she automatically flirts with all the men there. It occurred to me while watching the 1st 2 episodes that she really believes all men desire her. Talk about her parents failing this kid.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        it is so strange…a 50 year old man and a child? Its gross-and the fact that they said they had her parents blessing? I cant…the therapist looks so uncomfortable with them and Courtney just keeps flirting with her. She needs some REAL therapy-not this BS TV therapy!!!

        • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

          I believe the reason they were okay with the relationship is because of greed. If this was any other 50yearold, they would have called the police, but because he is reasonably known in acting circles and most likely is well off, they all saw an opportunity. They are not there for real therapy which I believe the other couples are (as far as these shows go anyway). After Doug and Courtney had their session with the doc and giving some of their history of how they lost all of his family relationships, I have even less respect for them than ever which was nonexistant to begin with.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She is so immature mentally but so overly mature sexually-I dont even want to try to understand this gross relationship.
            Im sure Doug has some money-I just googled and saw his net worth was at 3 mill….there is not enough money in the world for me(never mind my CHILD) to be with that creep of a man. How can you justify being with a child? He is older than her father-that is so sick on so many levels

            • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

              I don’t know how those shows work, but it seemed like no one else knows who will be on the show, that’s part of the deal. I agree, I would have left, but I wouldn’t go on reality therapy in the first place. I agree they are only there for reaction, not a real issue.

              In therapy, he made a comment he didn’t like the fact she wore exhibitionist clothes or that it did bother him, but then took her aside and told her not to let the others tell her to change out of her bikini for dinner.

                What i find interesting (and it never occurred to me before) is the doctor brought up the fact that usually women that have had some abuse in their past tend to act out sexually and asked if this was the case with her. She denied it and looked uncomfortable, but I wonder….

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Well the answer to that is-she is with a 50 year old man and she is a child…I would say that she is being sexually abused by HIM nightly….

                • Lisa Renee says:

                  NMhousewife, as with my opinion about Carol & her habits file this under takes one to know one lol…..ITA & that was my take away from the session. Two reactions (& many others) when children are molested. Overt sexuality at an inappropriate age or such low self esteem you wish you could blend in the wall & quietly self destruct with drugs, poor men choices or food. I fell into the latter. Since their relationship hit the news it was my knee jerk reaction, that child was compromised. Dougs family was in their right to exclude them from their life. I may have gone less harsh & said until she is 18 or 21. Still, who wants to go out, have in their home a woman who dresses like that outside a strip club.
                  What I did appreciate were the other men. Her age was not lost on them, married or not. The men are uncomfortable peepin a child, dressed to provoke a sexual response specifically, from grown men. If Courtney was age appropriate the other wives would have to either hate on her or tell her to put some dam clothes on. Not one parent in that group would want their child to dress in such a provocative manner, boy or girl at such at young age. Anderson Cooper could not get enough of these two in the beggining. Now the whole thing makes me feel like I need a shower ….like the one you get from the movie silkwood. Lisa

                  • NMhousewife (KEGlovesNorway) says:

                    That’s right, I was relieved that the others were not appreciative of her flaunting while they were trying to get therapy. I thought it was funny that someone like Nick Ritchie(?) and one of the other singerrs who is supposed to be extremely sexually explicit were appalled by them as well. 🙂 Silkwood scrubbing is what is needed for watching them as well as any housewive scene of seduction with her man.

                    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  NM Housewife I agree with you, you could tell she wasn’t being truthful, that girl has been molested or something. Maybe she saw really sexual acts at a very young age and thats why she behaves this way? If you research it, you’ll find that like 99% of porn stars have been sexually abused.

                      I know, really sad. Most come from really bad childhoods. Same thing with most prostitutes. Don’t get me wrong I’m sure that the are a few in the “adult business” that came from normal lives. I remember how Howard Stern would have porn stars on his show and he would normally ask “Have you been molested?” Never liked that guy.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    Stripper also have a very high rate of past sexual abuse. Often, in order to lower they inhibitions (so they can take their clothes off in front of a group of people), then end up getting into drug and/or alcohol abuse as well.

                      Oops, these cough drops and this Dayquil must have something to do with my screwed up typing all day. “StripperS” (with an “s”); to lower “their” inhibitions (not “they”); and “they end up getting into” (not “then”).

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I really think it has a lot to do with the kid. Boo (nephew #3) could count to 10 by one. Great niece #1 is roughly 2 months older than him and she doesn’t. He’ll turn 3 at the end of November (she’s already 3) and there are significant differences. He counts to 30, abc’s, recognizes words w/flash cards, fully potty trained in just about 2 weeks, he started drinking out of a straw at 5 months. I have a cute pic of him in a high chair doing it. As for my niece, she counts to 10 sporadically, still diapers/binkie, doesn’t talk much, and does some abc’s. I don’t know what her parents do with her. I know she is a very intelligent lil girl, just needs to break out of her shell. As for Boo, he’s been worked with constantly since birth between his house and our house. We had lil counting songs we’d sing to him as lulliby’s and did my baby can read. We started the Seasame street monsters walking acrossed the floor song (counting to 4) w/ the great nieces. When the oldest was here she picked up on it really well. Our goal now in kindergarten prep is fine motor skills. We’re working on holding pencils/crayons the right way. I’ll never forget hearing in child psych that you have from birth to 6 to increase your child’s IQ. Definitely trying to take advantage of that.

          Coughing and cackling (over this blog) and thinking about how I’m going to have to FORCE myself to eat something soon because I have not eaten since 9 this morning. I’ve hardly had any appetite for the past 3 or 4 weeks. It’s weird because I stopped taking those diet pills my doc prescribed over a month ago.

          I need to start setting my alarm to remind me to eat every 4-5 hours so my metabolism doesn’t slow down.

          What are YOU up to?

          • Nancy says:

            I’m playing some chamber music tonight. Are you feeling like yourself yet?

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Ooh, chamber music! Good for you. I took about 3 years of piano lessons, and I no longer remember how to read music at ALL or even how to play ANYTHING on the piano. I did not want to take piano lessons in the 1st place. My Mom insisted because SHE always wanted to take them when she was growing up, but they were too poor for anything like that.

              I wanted to take dance lessons (and shake my a*s…because, I like dancing and shaking my a*s. What can I say?), but she insisted on piano. I guess I subconsciously rebelled and wiped it all out of my mind out of pure stubbornness and resentment (because I was able to read music and play while I was taking lessons. I performed at recitals and everything. Go figure.).

              No, I’m still not QUITE feeling like myself yet. My cough has returned, and it’s pretty bad. My rib feels good as new. I still have shortness of breath occasionally. And I’m more tired than usual. Monday, 10/15, will be 4 weeks since I went to the E.R. and got diagnosed with Walking Pneumonia. The doc told me I should be back to myself in 2 weeks. When I went to figure out what was going on with me due to my side pain, and they said a bruised lung or rib fracture, someone else there said it could take 4-6 weeks before I’d be back to my old self.

              So, I guess it’s going to take me the full 6 weeks. I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.

              Thank you so much for asking, Nancy.

      • BB says:

        I felt a little sorry for Jason’s parents too, but I tried to cut B a little slack. I have never even heard her mention a grandparent in her life and we all know her upbringing was nothing close to conventional, so she had no idea was was “normal.” It’s not like she ever prevented the grandparents from seeing their son or grandaughter. Maybe she was afraid that if she didn’t set some type of limits, she would be spending every weekend with the folks. I can see Jason going for that every weekend kind of stuff. You know, mom and Bethenny in the kitchen making dinner while Dad and Jason and his hometown buddies are in the den watching sports. Nothing wrong with that, but that’s just not Bethenny and Jason had to have known that when he married her. If I was a workaholic like Bethenny, I wouldn’t want to be spending all of my free time at the in-laws either. Love Jason’s parents though. Perfect in-laws for almost anyone, except, unfortunately, Bethenny. Kinda sad.

  35. As the mother of an autistic child, and one who has worked with autistic kids for eighteen years, I want to add that yes, it can take a long time to get a diagnosis. Our son was just under a year and a half old when we first suspected autism…and we did begin speech therapy immediately, as well as tests to rule out hearing issues and seizure disorder…BUT he was nearly four before an “official” diagnosis of autism was given. Not because we waited that long to take him to a doctor, but simply because he was that age before they were able to perform the standardized tests needed to determine autism. It’s a fairly common thing, having to wait, because you’ve got to get the child to perform with some of those tests, and that isn’t always possible when they are both very young and autistic.

    That said, though, waiting eight months to take your child to the doctor when you suspect something is wrong is, in my opinion, negligent. Especially claiming insurance issues when you are living a rather lavish lifestyle. A doctor may not be able to immediately determine autism, but they can recommend, and almost always do, other forms of therapy and testing. It’s absolutely standard to rule out hearing issues and seizure disorder first. (A not easily detectable hearing loss can mimic the symptoms of autism, which is why so many doctors recommend the extensive hearing test to either determine a hearing loss or rule it out. Same with seizure disorder.) And there are therapies, such as speech therapy and therapy for fine motor skills, that can help a great deal even before an official diagnosis of autism is made.

    For heaven’s sake, Jac, how much does it cost to take a child to the doctor and say “Hey, I think there’s something going on here. What should our next step be?” $100? Claiming lack of insurance is ridiculous.

    While I have compassion for Jac and Chris, they shouldn’t whitewash their failure to seek immediate medical attention. Yes, autism is scary, and yes, it’s a devastating thing to face. But it isn’t the end of the world. It’s not fatal. It’s not physically crippling. It’s autism. With the combined efforts of parents and educators and medical professionals, a happy autistic child can grow up to be a happy adult, secure in the knowledge that he/she is loved and cherished. That’s the essential thing.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      THANK YOU!! I have touched on this before but wasn’t able to explain it as articulate as you did.
      This whole thing with Jac and waiting 8 months for a dx and then a treatment plan has me shaking my head. It seems to me that the front line should have started with having Nic’s hearing checked, followed by a first to a neurologist for an MRI and EEG. Even a primary care physician can order therapy services such as speech, OT, PT. Nor does a child NEED a DX to receive IE services through the state program (although it does help).
      The method Jac chose IMO is absolutely the WRONG way to handle it.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Thanks Kukulet. A strong parent over comes all obstacles when it involves their child.

    • melthehound says:

      I’m not going to pretend to have any clue of what it is you have gone through. From the people (online) I’ve talked to about autism, 18 years ago, there weren’t nearly as many resources and tests as there are now. Many were clueless as to what it even was and they didn’t, for the most part, have the internet. I can point you to a family that went through a similar experience, in your time frame, who didn’t learn of autism until someone, a neighbor, suggested she have her (now 19yo) son tested.

      Let me tell you about Sean, according to his mother, Janet (Look up MADROSED on youtube of you want to see for yourself. She’s a recapper for shows like TAR, DWTS, Survivor, etc. She also does daily vlogs that would likely bore the piss out of most people, as they do me. They do have their moments though. She rarely talks about her son being autistic but it isn’t because she’s in denial about it, it’s because after 19 years, it’s part of everyday life).

      At about 1 and a half, or earlier, they noticed something wasn’t right with him. They had his hearing and the like tested and it all seemed fine but he just seemed lost. Once they knew what they were dealing with they could begin to get him the help he needed, learn how to work with him. His two older sisters also had to make adjustments and learn to help. Until he was 7 or 8, he still wore a diaper. He has seizures, more so as a child than now but they still occur. He still goes to school but it’s more of a vocational learn to function school than anything else. To get him to answer a question, they have to coach an answer out of him. There are a number of things that he can do well but none are likely to turn into a paying job for him. I would guess, only from what I’ve seen, he has developed to the point of about an 8 year old. An 8 year old in a 6’3″ 200 pound body who happens to love Bert, Ernie, and Clifford the big red dog. He also collects mascot dolls for sports teams.

      To illustrate how much they cherish ANY accomplishment or step… If you ask Sean how was school today, his answer was always, It’sa Wonderful. A couple weeks ago the answer that came back was “Fine”. Didn’t seem like much to me but for them, That was HUGE and they were thrilled they had captured it on video.

      Kind of my whole point here is, the minute they found out that this was more than a hearing problem or just slow development (let’s be honest, not every kid who doesn’t speak has a mental problem. I didn’t speak until I was 3, when my younger sister began to talk, so the story goes) they were on top of every bit of information they could find and did everything that was available to them to help him. Granted, there was no twitter or such then but, according to them, they dropped any of the other stuff they were doing and planning at the time, to help their son. I’d say they did a pretty fair job.

      The Lauritas on the other hand, from what I can see, are wasting an awful lot of time with stupid shit. To them, I think they should have said phuck bravo and their dumbass show and everything else that goes with it. Piss on Teresa too if she was a problem for them. She didn’t cause the kid to be this way and trashing her all over the internet hasn’t helped that kid one single bit. Shame on them. I still can’t get over that, again, if true, they waited for insurance in their lofty McMansion to begin finding out what the hell was going on with that kid.

      I’ll close this by saying, if you decide to check out the madrosed channel and comment, tell them 2coolmel sent you. They won’t know who MTH is 😉

      • “From the people (online) I’ve talked to about autism, 18 years ago, there weren’t nearly as many resources and tests as there are now.”

        This is very true, which makes Jac’s delay even more incomprehensible to me. Even so, there is no “insta-test” for autism, then or now. A definite diagnosis is a matter of process of elimination (hearing issues, etc), followed by cognitive and motor skills testing, along with probing the child’s developmental history and observing behavioral patterns. Taking a child to the doctor at a very young age (1 1/2 to 2 1/2 years) will most likely get the response of “We can’t determine a diagnosis of autism YET, but let’s recommend this therapy and that test, and when we’ve gathered enough information, we’ll be in a better position to determine if his symptoms are consistent with a diagnosis of autism.” It’s the cautious, responsible way to handle it that you will likely find with a good doctor.

        My son is very similar to Sean. What we didn’t do was sit on our butts and do nothing for eight months because of “insurance”. We didn’t have insurance at the time we first noted a problem, either. But we’re also not talking about hundreds of thousands (or even thousands) of dollars worth of diagnostic tests to determine autism. You might spend several hundred visiting a small number of specialists, but there is so much assistance available for autism these days, it’s fairly easy to get excellent care without straining the family finances-especially for someone as well to do as Jac. One in 77 children are born with autism, as according to the CDC study released earlier this year. A huge number of resources are are readily available at very little cost.

        Jac and Chris would get more understanding if they’d just own the fact that they dithered around out of fear or ignorance than “insurance”. It insults the intelligence of most parents, many of whom would scrape and scrimp to get their child to a doctor sooner rather than wait for “insurance ” to kick in before arranging a single doctor visit. I’m pretty sure Jac’s Bravo salary would’ve covered the fees.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Kukulet-how do you feel about Jac saying her son will recover or that she will recover her son. I am very uninformed when it comes to autism so forgive my please ignorance.

          • There is no “cure” for autism, and one doesn’t “recover”. It just doesn’t work that way. The most important element is for parents to work in tandem with special needs educators, health professionals, and rehab services to provide the child with every opportunity for advancement and integration into the “real world”. But it depends on the child’s level and type of autism (i.e. straight autism disorder, Aspberger’s, high functioning, low functioning, etc). There is no foolproof plan of action, and every case is different.

            The bottom line is that every autistic child, with collective effort, CAN lead a happy and fulfilling life. They may not become self sufficient or entirely independent in the way that you and I are, but the key goal is always to help them become as self sufficient and independent as possible.

            But saying that an autistic child can “recover” or “be recovered” is unrealistic. It’s very important, as a parent, to keep hope alive and strive for every tiny step forward, but also to be realistic, because your child depends the parent being practical. But that comes with time and experience. It’s early days for Jac-ten years for now, I’m sure she will have revised her viewpoint.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Thank you for answering. I know she gets into some trouble on Twitter for using the word “recover” and it has been discussed here a few times as well. I think she should have waited to get her mind around the situation before she started Tweeting about all of it. She seems to think she has suddenly become the autism to-go celeb of the moment on twitter and it kind of makes her look silly.

        • melthehound says:

          I don’t remember when she said that she was actually given a diagnosis (confirmed), I think that’s when they started looking into it and getting him tested.

          • Then I have to say she wasted valuable time.

            We knew something was wrong with our son when he was just under a year and half old. After a few months of therapy and hearing tests and such, we also were pretty sure he was autistic, even though we hadn’t received an official diagnosis and didn’t for some months. The writing was on the wall, and scary as it was, it wouldn’t have served him to bury our heads in the sand. The point is, we sought professional medical advice and immediately dived into getting him help ahead of the formal diagnosis. And by immediately, I mean he saw a medical professional within three days of our agreeing that something was off.

            I don’t understand Jac. I really don’t. She had a child with mysterious issues that seem to affect his well being and his development. To put it bluntly, it really doesn’t matter WHAT the symptoms were. The real issue is that there WERE symptoms, whatever they were, and SOMETHING was wrong. Why was she goofing around on a reality show? Why did she even wait a month, much less eight, to get him to a doctor? At that point, who CARES about Teresa Guidice or Tweeting about silly drama or any of the other asinine crap? Her child was in trouble. Drop everything else and get on the ball, lady.

            As well, saying her child will “recover” or that she will “recover him” is just another example of burying her head in the sand. But, again, the journey is just beginning for Jac and Chris. They’ll learn as they go.

            • melthehound says:

              I’ve actually just spoken to her and I’m wrong. 14 months is when she says they actually had a firm diagnosis. Apparently when he was born, they were told to keep a close eye on him. One of the first things they did, very early was have his hearing tested. He also had a myriad of other problems apparently. I don’t know where I got the neighbor suggested testing, maybe I imagined it. My apologies to her for getting it wrong and giving you all the wrong information. I’ve given her the link to my original post in this thread so she may stop by here at some point.

      KuKulet, I will add you to the list in my head 🙂 i posted my opinion about Jacq’s habits, behavior & agenda. It doesn’t mesh with what I learned from the parents on this board & their trials & tribulations. I learned what the day of a special needs child timeline is & it makes for a very busy long day. Jacq’s activity defies parents like RR & PP & now you. Proactive moms too busy to brush their hair some days. I try to avoid commenting on other people’s parenting styles but Crack-A-Jack’s makes no sense. Lisa

  36. I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    I just thought of something when it comes to Jac, and this whole trove of alleged “evidence” she has proving that Teresa was behind “Strippergate.” For some STRANGE reason, this evidence never seems to appear.

    One of the things that just came back to mind was the time that Jac released alleged texts she sent to Teresa to prove that she was NOT sending “threatening” texts to Teresa (after Teresa, on “Anderson Cooper”, said that Jac was still texting her, and it was starting to scare her. She mentioned that Jac had recently even sent her a text at 1 o’clock in the morning).

    Well, in RESPONSE, on her blog, Teresa released HER version of the texts which included texts between BOTH her AND Jac (unlike Jac’s earlier release, which only included Jac’s texts). I pulled those texts up again and just read carefully over them.

    At a certain point, Teresa tells Jac (on 8/14/12 @ 9:34 a.m.), “After [Name Blocked Out by Teresa] tried to set me up at the fashion show last year, nothing surprises me. Thank you I would love peace.”

    Jac then responds (on 8/14/12 @ 11:12 a.m.), “Really? None of us are safe. Take the money and live your life. Who cares what anybody thinks. Nobody lives your day to day but you.”

    Because these texts are dated 2012, it appears to me that Teresa is referring to the Posche Fashion Show which took place last year on 9/27/11. The PFS and everything else that took place before, during and after same, was the finale episode.

    WHO is Teresa referring to as trying to set her up? I’ve heard some people say Cat (Rodriguez, the shady fired/not fired Producer responsible for the editing that focused ONLY on the Giudice skeletons). I’m not sure, though.

    Also, why, at this point, did Jac NOT stick with what she said during the finale: “TERESA set MELISSA up.” I mean, at this point, in the conversation, wouldn’t Jac have said something like, “Teresa, I don’t want to go there about this issue. You say YOU were set up. I respectfully disagree, but I would like peace between us from now on.”

    Instead, she says, “Really?” and basically “Take the money and run!” She says this like she is allegedly “surprised” at the person Teresa names as having set HER up at the PFS. I mean, at the PFS, Jac was ADAMANT that it was TERESA that set Melissa up. What’s up with the “Really?”

    I don’t know. It just seems so ODD to me. Maybe she was just humoring Teresa. *Shrug* This COULD be the case, because, later, on 8/28/12, Jac texts Teresa again and starts ranting about “E-Mails and phone recordings.”

    Then, on 9/5/12, Jac texts, “[Name Blocked Out by Teresa] is not going to clear you at the Reunion if that’s what you’re thinking. I talked to her, and you are just as guilty. I have recordings to prove it. See you Friday.” (I’m thinking Jac is referring to Kim D.).

    She then goes on to bitch about the “lie” Teresa told about what Chris told Joe (about her being a stripper, I guess); the new “multi-million dollar deal” she just got; seeing Teresa’s ex-; noting how Teresa’s daughter Gabriella “looks a lot like him”; then immediately saying she is “just joking” about Gabriella and the ex-; and ending with “I want peace at the Reunion, you know that.” (Jac sure didn’t look like she wanted PEACE at the Reunion to ME, but maybe I missed something.).

    Much of what was released looks like MAINLY Jac texting Teresa with VERY LITTLE responses from Teresa (So, it’s kinda like she’s talking to HERSELF most of the time).

    ….Anyhoo, after Teresa released these texts, Jac went crazy and claimed that Teresa had EDITED the texts, and she was going to PROVE this and, to that end, be releasing the FULL STRING OF TEXTS BETWEEN them to PROVE THE TRUTH.

    This was in September.

    It is now October.

    Jac STILL has not released this “full string of texts” to prove that Teresa had edited them.

    What do you guys think of this?

    Would it take Jac that long (2-4 weeks) to gather this particular bit of evidence?

    Why does she go from, WHILE AT THE PFS, saying that she KNOWS FOR A FACT THAT TERESA SET MELISSA UP…..to “Really?” when Teresa mentions someone setting HER up at the PFS….and then back to ranting and raving about having all of this evidence proving that Teresa was responsible?

    I’m drawing no conclusions. I’m just seriously confused.

    Any thoughts? Help me out here. Oh yeah, here are the ALLEGEDLY (according to Teresa) full text exchanges released by Teresa:

    • VV says:

      It’s Psycho Jacko. It’s not supposed to makes sense. I too found it odd about the texts. Jac would have been all over Tre when Tre mentioned she was set. Her statement that nobody is safe is telling.
      Between Bitter Clown saying we need to read between the lines and Jac’s non existent proof, they both got nothing, zilch, nada.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Jac is just a twittering fool-she cant help herself…she need a twitter DETOX cause she is a jive turkey!!
        What I really want to know-and maybe Diva knows already-is what is the deal with Kathy and her family? Where are her brothers? She has 2 or 3 I think. How come they never talk about them? And the Father? Kathy’s (and that sister Rosie) reaction-when Teresa said what she said at the reunion was a bit over the top. Not to be insensitive-I know he is dead-but Teresa didnt say anything so horrible to get that response from those 2. I think they are hiding a little family trouble and I wonder why the are so sure that Teresa wont spill it all one day.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’ve read a couple of different things on local and national blogs. Several comments say that Kathy’s brothers were once engaged in illegal activity having to do with drugs (possibly selling). Other comments say they are still engaged in this illegal activity (I don’t believe that, for some reason). And several OTHER comments say that Kathy and Rosie do NOT GET ALONG WITH THEIR BROTHERS, so that is why they are never shown or mentioned (This may not be true AT ALL. I would find it incredibly IRONIC if it were true, though).

          I DO think it is VERY odd that we have never seen or even heard about these 2 brothers AT ALL. Why weren’t they at Kathy’s pool party? Why weren’t they at Kathy’s Christmas Eve gathering? Why weren’t they at the Lebanese place where everybody went out to dinner once?

          I mean, WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY? WHY are they NEVER mentioned? What is the STORY (if there IS one) there?

          It’s just STRANGE.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I have no problem never seeing the brothers-but they have never been mentioned-not from the Mother or the sisters…its strange right?

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Yep. Maybe the 2 brothers are JIVE TURKEYS, and that’s why Kathy and Rosie never mention them. OR, maybe they ARE at these events, but BRAVO edits them out. *Shrug*

    • LuvMyGals says:

      My dear Detox, I do believe the ladies are playing a role for a raunchy TV show that has us scratching our heads and staying up nights thinking about it. Everything they do, just like JZs “news story” is all part of their hook. IMHO Take care of yourself.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I think Jacky is wacky and very scary and obsessed with Teresa. I think Teresa was relieved of the burden of friendship with a nutcase and moved forward just living her life. Maybe Wacky was trying to get Teresa to text something incriminating. What really bothers me is that she just can’t let go of her hate, anger, envy and delusions and I can’t imagine how much time she spends thinking about Teresa. Kinda reminds me of KKB…..

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      I thought that was odd too, and judging by the amount of letters that were blocked out, I thinkTeresa wrote: after “production” set me up…since they are talking about them airing Joe’s comments on the phone. Then Jac saying “none of us are safe” also makes me think it was ‘production’ that Teresa is referring to.
      Clearly Teresa believes she was set up and she texted it in reply to Jac months ago, and Jac knows it’s true. IMO

      Also, the texts weren’t edited and Teresa updated her blog to clarify it. Jac also knew that was true which is why she let it all go. She wasn’t going to win that one.

    • mrs. peabody says:

      I think wacky jacky is like the high school kid that wants to hang with the cool kid and maybe gets to until the cool kid realizes she really does not want to hang with her because she’s a little nuts and so the cool kid starts to distance themself from the nutty kid. the nutty kid goes even crazier because she can’t let the friendship go and starts almost stalking the cool kid. That is what jacky is doing. the more teresa gets on with her life the more frustrated jacky gets and the more she goes after teresa. Seriously if I was teresa I would be be consulting an atty about getting a restraining order against jacky. I also think someone should tweet melissa (I don’t tweet), joey, his real sisters and ask them for the real story as to how they met. start asking them the questions andy won’t ask. also tweet katfish (i saw that on another blog and thought it was a good name for kathy) some questions too. also I got a response to my email to qvc about not buying any of katfishes products and they didn’t know who she was nor have any stock associated with that name.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        For some reason people who don’t tweet come up with the best things to TWEET!
        I can not believe that QVC said they didn’t know who Kathy was…that s just hysterical!!! Her and her canoli kit !

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Maybe you should have asked for the Tuna Cannoli Kit (that’s the joke at SH, by the way).

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I don’t tweet either. This is probably a good thing because I am sure I would be BLOCKED LIKE CRAZY after sending out just a few tweets.

        My tweets would mainly be questions similar to the ones you suggest or something smartass and sarcastic. It’s funny how so many people who CHOOSE to put themselves in the PUBLIC EYE can be SOOOO sensitive and emphatically state that they should NOT be JUDGED. Ummmm…..yes, you SHOULD because you ASKED to be judged by placing your a*s on my t.v.

        I’m not talking about people who become famous or celebrities without trying. I’m talking about those who SIGN up for these shows. They gotta take the good with the bad. I am NOT including obscenity or harassment or threats in my “bad” category. That is uncalled for. Honest observations about their behavior and constructive criticism of same is to be expected, though. I remember Bethenny used to be pretty good at responding to sarcastic or nasty comments, and she often would not even block the person afterward. She probably had the business sense to realize that it is ultimately the VIEWERS that basically pay her bills. Why act like a big baby and alienate them? JMHO

    Awesome victory tonight for Florida Gators beating Vandy especially since Jillous was there in support of her daughters vandy team.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh, the Gators schooled my Aggies!! We are glad to see them continuing to win; it makes us look less like schlamiels. Texas A&M is beating Louisiana Tech.

      We are hoping they can hang on to the lead. Of course we are switching over to watch the Yankees, Ibanez just hit another homer. So far, this is HIS series. So neat to see a pinch hitter coming into his own.

    BB,
    Are you watching? Once again unbelievable. I didn’t get to watch the first 5 innings but what a
    9th! This has been a crazy start to the World Series.
