Let’s Chat – Real Housewives of New Jersey

I think tonight’s episode will be explosive, so I’ll probably watch.  Then the train wreck Long Island Princesses will follow New Jersey.  It seems to me to be a more mind-numbing version of Vanderpump Rules. At least the people on Vanderpump Rules didn’t live with their parents, unlike the spoiled brats on Princesses.  Presumably these women are looking for rich, successful husbands.   Good luck with that.  It’s hard enough to meet someone, but when you present yourself as a drunken fool – well  – there is a reason they are still single.

But the primo show of the night will be the finale of Mad Men.  I can not wait to see how they end the show!

Let’s chat.

    Good evening. In my Alfred Hitchcock voice. 🙂 I hope you all have fun watching NJ. I am looking forward to reading MTH’s blog tomorrow.

    I’m going to take a stab at Celebrity Wife Swap to get some laughs from Joan Rivers and then on to Whodunnit which I’ve been looking forward to.

    • ladebra says:

      I think there is a new show on tonight, Crossing Lines. It looks interesting.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Darn I missed Joan on wife swap. The bad part is that there is no app for CBS (idiots) for the iPad. I suppose Hulu will let me watch if I remember.

      • Rebecca says:

        Lol, yes there is.

        • Laineylainey says:

          Lol? I know there is an app but the last time I downloaded it, it would not show me full episodes just excerpts. But!! I just saw that an announcement made on Mar 14′ that CBS shows full episodes now. Yay!! Downloading it now.

  2. Rebecca says:

    Good luck with tonight’s episode. I’m oping for True Blood and Crossing Lines. I’ll wait until after I read your recaps to decide if I’ll watch the whole show tomorrow.

    My prayers are with everyone watching as it broadcasts. Cocktail anyone? It’s bellinis here.

  3. WOOT WOOT! Can’t wait to watch Mad Men! I have been watching old episodes on Netflix today…never realized how many times poor Bobby has been recast! How I love my Don Draper…Christian Grey (5 points for those that get the reference!)

  4. lillybee says:

    Thanks for the heads up on Crossing Lines. I plan on taping it.

  5. VV says:

    RHONJ is on!
    This is kind of irritating me…”

  6. VV says:

    Melissa is a SNAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  7. VV says:

    Can’t stand Rosie and her snoozefest sister … What’s her name?

  8. windycitywondering2 says:

    Gorga just can’t count!

  9. JustDee says:

    MORE Hospital-gate.

  10. VV says:


  11. Rosie needs some table manners. Ugh.

    • Nancy says:

      Big time!

    • seagirl45 says:

      She’s a bit rough around the edges, to say the least.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Not watching right now but Rosie is really letting me down. And how DARE sHE. I really wanted to like her, but from what I’m reading here, she is showing herself to be a bit unlikable.

  12. VV says:


  13. lillybee says:

    Poor Antonia, having to listen to Melissa bash Tre.

    • Amalfi says:

      I am going to say, it’s probably the same thing Gia goes through at home but worse because she gets all the underlying meanings and references..

      It’s all bad. No one wins.

  14. BB says:

    I’m watching HGTV Design Star and then to bed. Have to report to my new job tomorrow at 6 a.m.

  15. windycitywondering2 says:

    Snooze through the visit to the hospital. Now the Kathy/Rosie snooze fest – who can’t get her nasty daughters to STFU. And now the Manzo’s make meatballs. I WANT MILANIA!

  16. VV says:

    Sedated BitterClown and her entrepreneur offsprings. How will this new venture turnout?

  17. Nancy says:

    Because there is no revenue you clown!

  18. lillybee says:

    I bet that restaurant should be a candidate of Restaurant Impossible or Kitchen Nightmares in a few months.

  19. Young Chris is letting himself go. And he’s only 23.

  20. VV says:


  21. Nancy says:

    Where is Lauren living now?

  22. lillybee says:

    Rosie, STFU

  23. Is Rosie just drunk all the time? Or just off?? I remember her as somewhat funny last season – but now it’s just sad.

  24. windycitywondering2 says:

    Here is the thing that gets me – they all get worked up over Teresa (Rosie anyone) and she has done nothing to them – she isn’t trying to hang out with or call or twitter with any of them. But she is all they can talk about!

  25. Amalfi says:

    Yelp reviews for Manzo boys’ restaurant: Ave of 2.5 stars out of 5 from 57 reviews. Been open about 2 months. This should be fun.


    • Laineylainey says:

      Doesn’t sound good. Too bad. You know how yelp is, though usu its mostly the disgruntled who take the time to write a review. One time when dd was having her 19 th bday, she was craving red lobster. The one nearest us had 2 reviews and they were bad..so I called them and said I had a party of 5 and it was my daughter’s bday…but I was concerned about the bad reviews. The manager went to the office and read them with me online and thanked me for calling and not just assuming that it would be a bad dining experience…when we showed up we were given the royal treatment from beginning to end. I learned something that day. Sometimes a bad experience is an isolated experience..I just thought I would like to give the management a chance to tell me their side. It turns out the manager is someone I met when our kids were really little. She was/is super nice and all about her family. We’re fb friends now. Yippee.

      • Amalfi says:

        People did praise the local on tap beer. I think the reviews didn’t sound over the top disgruntled though. Still…. 2.5 stars. Maybe it is the same growing pains for any new restaurant, but I am guessing the Manzos like to talk about working hard, but don’t really know how to do that.

      • Amalfi says:

        Also Lainey, next time I go to Red Lobster, I am taking you with me.

        • Laineylainey says:

          LOL. I have to reiterate that it was only 2 reviews and they both happened to be bad. I wouldn’t call a place that had pages of horrible experiences, etc.

  26. VV says:

    OMG! Eggmit is writing a book?!

  27. Nancy says:

    WHo is going to publish her book? Are you kidding me?

  28. A pretty girl like Melissa and the best she could do was Joey – yup I don’t think I can use and advice from her.

  29. windycitywondering2 says:

    Melissa, Melissa, Melissa – STFU – your father has nothing to do with your sex life!

  30. Amalfi says:

    Melissa – yes, I am writing a book, but NO it is NOTHING like Teresa’s really. Hers is a cook book. Mine is an advice book. Yep. I’m better.

  31. VV says:

    Go with the truth Melissa. Your lies will eventually catch up with you.

  32. Nancy says:

    That dog is beautiful. The poor little thing.

  33. windycitywondering2 says:

    Wacky Jacky STFU and STFU!

  34. boston02127 says:

    Thankfully, I tuned in just in time for Melissa to let me know how to be a good wife.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Hellz yeah, she’s been married less than 10 years! That’s expert in my book!

  35. Amalfi says:

    Also… right now.. Joey reminds me of my father I wanted a man like my father. Later on… My father was a cheater.

    Who is bipolar and can’t keep all her lies straight again? Oh, yes it’s Teresa.

  36. lillybee says:

    Jacki, yes you are still in grade school.

  37. VV says:

    You stalk Teresa on Twitter Jac.

  38. Nancy says:

    This trainer should just walk out. I would.

  39. VV says:


  40. Amalfi says:

    I also love hearing Jac talk about herself as if anyone considers her relevent. And high five to her trainer for shutting her down… well, unsuccessfully.

    Irrelevent psycho. Mute button.

  41. windycitywondering2 says:

    I like Joe Gi’s mama!

    • Amalfi says:

      I am guessing Joe Giu takes after his dad.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        Have we seen Joe Giu’s dad?

        • Amalfi says:

          I think at the tomato sauce making. Come to think about it, they talked about periods back then too. Gahhh… Italians and tomato sauce and periods. Remind me never to eat tomato sauce…

          * and just a friendly warning to all men with potentially psycho gfs who watch real housewives of NJ: don’t eat the sauce.

  42. boston02127 says:

    Rosie is such a feminine lady. Like a breath of fresh air. She’s just a delight.

    • Nancy says:

      LOL She could be if she wanted to.

      • Amalfi says:

        So Rosie curses at the dinner table with her elderly immigrant Italian mother who probably still loves the brother she is not talking to who is very ill.

        Shut the hell up Ro-ro and just go-go. You’re vile to listen to and watch. I don’t get it.

  43. VV says:

    Your family is a mess too Sedated RedMopHair. How many brothers and sister don’t talk to you?

  44. boston02127 says:

    So, Melissa’s music tanked. This year the book. I wonder what costly adventure next year will bring us.

  45. Nancy says:

    Where’s the fly swatter?

  46. windycitywondering2 says:

    I got my bag of cookies, chocolate covered raisins and freshly made limeade – I am ready for the Wakiles and Rosie.

  47. VV says:

    I hear flyers flying ….

    Thank you Bravo potty brake…be back after Filthy Fly.

  48. boston02127 says:

    Yes Kathy we know how time flies…….you mention it on every episode. Every single one. Over and over.

  49. Nancy says:

    OMG here come the tears.

  50. windycitywondering2 says:

    Cry Melissa Cry.

  51. NJBev says:

    I’m watching celebrity wifeswap. Bristol Palin is a freaking stiff.
    And her son, Tripp. Perfect name for this incredibly spoiled brat. He certainly
    is a “Tripp”
    The producers are trying to keep Tripp away from Melissa so far, so we
    probably won’t get to see her “fix” him. Bristol refuses to do anything,
    so I’m sure we’ll see Joan “fix” her. haha

  52. windycitywondering2 says:

    Is Melissa doing this scene with her children within ear shot?

    • chismosa says:

      I think it’s production to show that the kids are in earshot when the room is miles long and quite far away I think from where the kids are


  53. Okay – this is the stuff that pisses me off. She cries and says she doesn’t know if she wants to share that her father was a cheater in her book, as she says it ON CAMERA to far more people than will ever read her book. Are we supposed to believe this?

  54. windycitywondering2 says:

    This episode is just plain wrong – no Milania!

  55. VV says:

    Informational for the 2.5 star little clownzos restaurant.

  56. Nancy says:

    Cut the cord Carolyn.

  57. VV says:

    First Law school – FAIL
    Miracle Murk – FAIL
    2.5 star restaurant – ?

  58. Those boys have both aged far too much.

  59. VV says:


  60. windycitywondering2 says:

    So this is the Wakile birthday party – Teresa isn’t there and Rosie is gonna go all foaming at the mouth about her?

    • chismosa says:

      I took it that she was foaming at the mouth specifically BECAUSE they were talking Ape. That annoyed her

      That’s how I took it

  61. Nancy says:

    This is disgusting.

  62. embee says:

    Did Richie just give Joe Gorga a lap dance? WTH?
    Now he’s pimping a girl for his son. Gross!

  63. boston02127 says:

    OMG Melissa STFU

  64. Amalfi says:

    Richie at the bday party: “Joey is not really interested in girls in that way just yet, but I think it’s about time.”

    What a crappy thing to say about his son.

    Oh wait… unless he meant Joey Gorga. Heehee

  65. lillybee says:

    Can’t you guys talk about something other than Theresa.

  66. windycitywondering2 says:

    Melissa deserved an ambush. And she just can’t take that Caroline won’t agree with her.

  67. VV says:

    Once again. Topic of conservation: TERESA!

  68. BB says:

    Looking at the comments, I feel so sorry for MTH having to blog this show.

  69. windycitywondering2 says:

    Caroline just dropped dual atomic bombs! And Kathy doesn’t forget anything ever. And wasn’t Caroline meddling because her heart breaks for JoGo? So get Kathy and Melissa seeing red and then Caroline can have JoGo all to herself?

  70. boston02127 says:

    If Melissa was 1/4 of the person that she describes herself to be, she’d be ok.

  71. boston02127 says:

    UGG kissing Rosie. I’d rather kiss my dogs ass.

  72. lillybee says:

    The only nice thing that I can say about Rosie is that her hair looks a lot better than last year.

  73. boston02127 says:

    Andy~~~”plus Frannie and Rosie”

  74. Caroline caused this Kathy meltdown.

  75. windycitywondering2 says:

    Kathy has no idea how to be a big or any other kind of sister – just look at Rosie.

  76. Nancy says:


  77. VV says:

    Rosie turned on Teresa for fame. Another famewhore!

  78. lillybee says:

    What did Tree ever do to Rosie?

    • Nancy says:

      She said something negative about her father at the reunion.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        No she didn’t say anything negative – she said her dad was there to help more than their father (he was sick/dying).

        • Nancy says:

          What did she say that got Rosie so upset at the reunion?

          • Amalfi says:

            Teresa had said her father (Mr. Gorga) had been there for Kathy more than her own had. When Rosie heard that she flipped out off camera even though she was miked.

  79. VV says:

    C’mon BRAVO. This is boring. The party is boring and Wakilees, Manzo, Laurita and Gorga are boring.

  80. boston02127 says:

    Do we really deserve this? We’re good people. Why do we do this to ourselves.

  81. Amalfi says:

    Oh wow… so Joey and Melissa are hell bent on running into Teresa. Seriously? Melissa’s timing was off, so now it is Joey’s turn. Scummy.

    I feel sorry for Teresa trying so hard. This makes me sad.

  82. windycitywondering2 says:

    Teresa is trying to be neutral and friendly with JoGo.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Cry Joey Cry.
      Lie Joey Lie.

    • Amalfi says:

      It is too late — Joey and Teresa are into it now and Joey clearly brought it up. Teresa’s own mistake is trying to get Joey to see the truth about Melissa. You’re not going to win that. Joey is an ugly bastard. He had only one reason for engaging Teresa,

  83. VV says:

    Your wife you moron. You’re too stupid to figure it out.

  84. boston02127 says:

    “I’m a smart guy” bwhahahhahahhahaha

  85. VV says:

    Last Season there was a cook off while camping in California and Teresa WON that cook off! So, you Midget, worthless piece of human crap. We know she can cook.

    • lillybee says:

      I remember that.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Tit for Tat?

    • Amalfi says:

      I wish Teresa was quick enough to have pointed to that fact (about winning the cook off against Kathy, Mel and Kathy) at the time they were arguing.

      Quickness is not her strong suit, and when you’re being attacking and in the middle of a fight with your brother, I am pretty sure all logic (whether possessed in large or small quantities) goes out the window.

      • VV says:

        I hope Teresa brings this up on her blog. SHE WON THE COOK OFF in California last season.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      I think that JoGo is jealous of the fact that their mama does cook with Teresa and/or Mama does cook meals for the girls when Teresa is doing book signings etc.

      • VV says:

        That’s their grandmother. Why wouldn’t she cook and help out with them?
        I’m sure she offered to help out with his kids too but Melissa doesn’t like them very much. Perhaps, they are too ‘off the boat’ for her…

  86. VV says:


  87. Nancy says:

    This is painful to watch.

  88. boston02127 says:

    Walk away Teresa. Walk away. Inhale the good shit and exhale the bullshit. Walk away.

  89. Sasha says:

    That Rosie gets so passionate. I thought she might flip a table.

  90. VV says:

    Joey learned his lines very well. This was all spoon fed by Teresa. We know this guy cannot put two sentences in a row without stumbling.

  91. windycitywondering2 says:

    Joey blaming Teresa for his and Meho’s relationship with them makes no sense. All he wants to do is hurt Teresa because he can’t face his parents!

  92. windycitywondering2 says:

    Joe Googa has no idea what respect is!

  93. lillybee says:

    So Mel is an angel? Not sure about that.

  94. VV says:

    We heard you Joey last season be unkind to Melissa.

  95. windycitywondering2 says:

    I can’t wait for Joe Guidice to toss this little hate monkey around that lodge.

  96. Amalfi says:

    I need a shower to get the Joe Gorga off me now.

  97. Sasha says:

    Who is going to pick that waste receptacle up?

  98. VV says:

    Once again is more of the same. Everybody against Teresa.
    Andy Cohen IS OBSESSED with Teresa. He has tried and tried to take her down for three season now.

    • Amalfi says:

      Andy came out on TV (although his friends knew… so not really coming out for real, but coming out to us in the audience and the housewives) during the entire line of questioning about Danielle getting mad at Joe Giudice for using the f@jj*t word during their dance lesson and Teresa tried to act like it was no big deal… and he said “I was offended. I am gay.”

      And there you go. The Teresa hate begins.

      • Rebecca says:

        I wonder what he thinks of Gwyneth Paltrow. I watched a show where she called Alan Cumming a super-f….

        I would bet $1million, the hypocrite loves Gwyneth!

        • VV says:

          Double standard for sure. We know both Richie and Joey Marco both were caught in camera and they aired it saying the F word and other derigatory comments about gays. ANDY IS FIXATED on the Giudices. Who knows maybe he has a crush on Juicy.

        • chismosa says:

          Really —- I have to google that about Gwyneth and Alan Cumming. I’m going to see Macbeth soon

  99. lillybee says:

    Why does Joe think that Tree needed to stay and listen to his abuse because it was definitely verbal abuse?

    • Nancy says:

      I bet he’s on steroids.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      IMHO – Joey gets off on hurting his sister so much that he just can’t stop. And then he gets pissy because she walks away before he has satisfied himself.

      • Nancy says:

        I wonder how they would get along if Melisa was out of the picture?

        • Amalfi says:

          They’d probably be married.

          • Nancy says:


            • cusi77 says:

              I totally agree that both Joes (Giu and Gor) seem to be in steroids. All the list checked … (the last point I CAN’t test, though) .

              Trying to follow the story according to Bravo, Momz talked to Joey, then to Teresa… both agreed that they want to be in good and cordial terms for the sake of their Father’s health.

              I am being here a *No team* : I didn’t see Joe make a little effort to be cordial and have a reasonable conversation with his sister, he was in a rage mode… I don’t think this two will ever going to be “Thick as thieves”, in 30 years they will be like Their dad and his sister (Kathy’s mother) who don’t care for each other and will not visit each other in the Hospital not matter the brother (Papa Gorga) Could be in his dead bed.

          • cusi77 says:

            RHONJ Season 2043= Teresa is with Audriana and Gabriella at the table discussing how they need to send their kids to see uncle JoeGo to the Hospital… “Tsk, tsk… it is not okay to not make your kids visit Tizzo , I can’t go because we are not on speaking terms since that time he said that your Dad (who is “away”, Btw) did not return those tools! I can’t forgive him, but you don’t have any reason to not go visit him! Then again, why are you don’t speaking to Milania and Gia?”

            • Rebecca says:

              I think Milania would have staged a coup by then and appointed herself Empress of America.

              • cusi77 says:

                Yeah! Milania is Dancing feeling herself “Gone with the Wind” , She is dating one of the Nassif -Maloof Children (Who is with her just for her money, since that 2% of The Palms is long gone).

      • chismosa says:

        Why the hell does she walk over to him then? I thought she was “done”

        • melthehound says:

          No, HE is done with Her. She did tell Momz that she would see him and even hoped he would be at Gia’s party. The pig is the one who wants to continue this feud.

    • chismosa says:

      Because she came over and started it and started it with saying “Melissa”

      Get over your obsession Ape! You LOST your true love. Go back home to your gorilla and his mistresses

  100. boston02127 says:

    Good night all. I was suppose to be off today and they called me this morning so I worked. I’m suppose to be off tomorrow and they asked me to work again. This has been going on since day one. Apparently people just don’t show up. I have a feeling they are lying to me about having other employees. They talk about other employees but I’ve never met them. Who knows???

  101. Nancy says:

    Is anyone going to watch this idiot walk across the Grand Canyon with no net or rope?

    • lillybee says:

      Not me.

    • TexasTart says:

      Yes! Not an idiot though, an extraordinary talented and spiritual man!

      • Nancy says:

        Not sure I agree with that. He has 3 small children.

        • TexasTart says:

          Nancy, you are setting me up to be kicked to the curb with George….
          Consider a firefighter or soldier and the risk in life they have before them daily. Should people who have children not take any risks…

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Taking risks by Serving others to save lives v. the quest for fame…big difference, don’t you think Texas Tart?

            Just sticking my schnozz where it doesn’t belong, Tartilage. We’re having a beautiful morning, aren’t we?

  102. Orson says:

    Tre and Joey learned this score keeping and insult remembering from their parents. Otherwise their parents would be on good terms with Kathy & Rosie’s parents. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. It’s a pox on both houses, cause they’re all wings of the SAME house.

    Screw’em all. Victoria might still have a chance.

  103. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Hi all -I was at a pool party and missed NJ…going to read all the comments and watch at 10…feeling very west coast!!!

  104. VV says:

    Sedated-BitterClown and JacDaniel’s Manifesto are up. Both dedicate a chunk of it to: …. you guessed it Teresa.

  105. lillybee says:

    It seems like both Rosie and Kathy are blaming their mom’s problem with Tre’s father on Tre.
    They are the masters of holding a grudge.

    • Orson says:

      It seems to be a Gorga trait.

    • chismosa says:

      I have blacklisted cousins whose parents Fu**ed my parents over big time.
      I pray they come crawling looking for a blood relative for health problems. I would spit at them. A$$es all of them. Karma has to get them, I hope though I have lost faith in karma of late

      • Amalfi says:

        The best revenge is living well.

      • Amalfi says:


        • chismosa says:

          You are sweet Amalfi, hugs back. !!!
          My parents don’t understand why I’m bitter because they just give give give and people take advantage– and that made me a bitter Betty lol. (Not as bitter as Betty on Mad Men lol)
          I hope to live well but ehhh, who knows. 😉

          Have a good night !

      • Jules says:

        Revenge is like drinking poision and waiting for the oypther person to die.

        • Jules says:

          Other not oypther.

        • chismosa says:

          Yeah I don’t want revenge I just hope fate/god/destiny catches up to them via their kids or their health.
          Hey look mr Gorga is sick you never know …..

          I do hold grudges, very happily

      • NJBev says:

        Chi-whatever you do, don’t lose faith in Karma.
        Just do it for me, ok? I have so many reasons to believe
        in the last year after 10 yrs of not believing. Karma may not
        work on our schedule. But, it is there. I promise. xo

  106. Orson says:

    These Lawn Guyland “princesses” are such an embarrassment.

  107. chismosa says:

    Mad Men is hysterical. And not intentionally!

    So the election happened?

    Chris Manzo looks terrible.

    • lillybee says:

      He is getting the Manzo frame. I think that he will be very big when he is 40.

      • Amalfi says:

        Maybe Lauren can get a refund for her surgery and then Chris can try it out. Why work to lose weight when you can throw money at it — or promote it and get it for free.

    Wow Kathy lives almost on the water …….nice

    • Nancy says:

      Hi chismosa,
      I had to cut my Uncle out of my life so I feel your pain.

      • chismosa says:

        Sorry for you Nancy—-
        By the way- on Friday I posted on here that there was something on Nightline about orcas in captivity. It was so sad! I know online you can watch Nightline but I’m sure you know all about it

    So will Caroline’s storyline next season be about how fat Chris is, or is that only reserved for females?

    Jacq said in her blog that BLK is doing really well. Is that true?

    I always wear full makeup and my hair clip ins and blown out and DOWN when I’m doing my workouts! Totally!

  114. VV says:

    Once again Melissa is taking shots a Tre. Gia retweeted some comments about tonight’s episode and Melissa twitted something in the lines of: I though kids were not to watch..(or something in those lines)

    • chismosa says:

      Why the hell is Gia on twitter for? Disgusting

      • VV says:

        She must be allowed. I know many 12 year olds that are on Twitter, Instagram, FB, Tumblr. Social media is here to stay and kids are getting started on it younger and younger it seems.

        • Amalfi says:

          She shouldn’t be on there — no matter who supposedly monitors her account *said to be that Teresa and her agent keep a close eye on it*

          • chismosa says:

            I’m sorry I know technology is moving at this super fast rate, I still wouldn’t allow a 12/13 yr old online, especially one who’s on TV !

    • Laineylainey says:

      For once, I’m gonna agree with Mel. Just this time. Write it down.

  115. chismosa says:

    Oh the squeaks and squeals. Kill ME

    Bring up his wife, start it start it.
    STFU !!!!! Ape!

    • Amalfi says:

      Bringing up Melissa didn’t start it — he went in there to not smooth things over, but to continue to hurt her because he was hurt – he was intuitive enough to have voiced that and he was honest – if not vindictive.

      Teresa talking about Melissa was ridiculous and she can’t do that to Joey who loves his beard. I mean wife.

    • NJBev says:

      never try to tell your husband that he is a moron about his wife.
      Joe handled that very well, Tre came out swinging agains’t his
      wife and got angry that he would not agree with her—-
      “C’mon Joe, you gonna tell me you neva called your wife the C word?”

      “Even Gia sayin that Melissa lip syncs” — Joe backing his claim the kids have
      heard too much from the parents
      “Well thats cuz Melissa does lip sync” is his sisters response.-
      (In all honesty with Teresa, she really does hate Melissa and the Love
      that her Brother has for his wife, something she will never get from
      meathead.) I swear, Tre wants her brother to say “ONE” diss
      towards Melissa………

      If my SIL ever spoke about me the way Teresa diss’ Melisa to Joego
      even I am confident that my husband would be “angry” with her.
      dont rip me a new one puh leeze

      • chismosa says:

        Bev I think we agree…….

        I guess Amalfi ^^ I disagree as to JoeGo’s ‘agenda’ at the gym. I didn’t know that Tre has the gym siphoned off at certain times ONLY allowed for her.
        We disagree, It’s ok 😉

        • Amalfi says:

          I dont think she siphons it off, and he can come when he wants, of course. But that particular day, his agenda was to get her back for saying things about Melissa – Hence the “You said she can’t sing? Well, you can’t cook. How do you like that?”

          That’s the agenda I am talking about. If he’s paying his monthly dues to the gym can come and go as they want…so see! We agree! 🙂

        • NJBev says:

          we do agree, Chi.
          Actually, we all agree in one way or another.
          The “Producers” set up that meeting, and they are
          the ones to blame-
          Neither Teresa, nor JoeGo, had a chance to succeed
          that day- that is my belief, and I will hold onto that forever!!

          They both, Tree and JoeGo went somewhere knowing their sibling
          would be there. That had to be scary enough. I’m sure they both work
          with different producers who feed them different info–
          playing them like a checker board, all for good TV ,
          And, IMO- these producers are very good at their jobs,
          would you not think so Chi?

      • cusi77 says:

        I agree with you, JoeGo loves his wife and I admire him that he defends her. Not all Italian men do that. He is a good husband. Joe Giu is and ape, the excuse that HE did not say the C word on her face, is idiotic, there were cameras and she was referring to her with the C word.

        What I saw was that he was defensive well before T. Mentioned Melissa. They Had to meet there! Teresa had great hair and full make up, this was for bravo.

        I like to think that they made their drama part, and then they went have a great breakfast! And we are here trying to make sense to the none sense! Enjoy! They are laughing their ass off because we agree or disagree while they go all the way to the bank!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Bev, I am posting this because I LOVE YOU and even though I think JoGo and MelGo suck…this is what my DH said…(who claims not to what all this crap but has plenty to say about it). In the scene with Teresa and Joe in the gym, DH said it was fair play for Joe to crack off about if Teresa cooks or not because of the “everyone knows Melissa lip syncs” comment because regardless of truth, both comments are meant to really hurt the person and their efforts to make a buck from it.

  116. boston02127 says:

    I can’t sleep.

  117. chismosa says:

    Oh so she didnt deny it. Go JoeGo. You didn’t start it.

    • Laineylainey says:

      They need to make up, chismy…not win the argument. ;). Just messing with you….hey you know tre sucks at arguing when she’s emotional.

      • VV says:

        I think Teresa suffers from some learning disability that was never detected and/or treated. I really do.

        • chismosa says:

          I completely agree VV. always thought so

          Thanks Lainey…. ^^^^^

        • NJBev says:

          VV. I know you won’t agree with me and that’s ok.
          But I think Caroline was right that Teresa’s biggest
          problem is her pride. It’s a very “european” thing.
          Even though she was born here, her values are straight
          off the boat. Europeans (ok, I’m sure not ALL of them)
          but I know my Mom is the same way— her pride is
          so deeply rooted into her personality, although my Mom
          may admit wrongdoing in any circumstance- Never
          with her Sister-n-law. that went on forever.
          Certain “hurts” (perceived or otherwise) cannot be
          forgotten, sigh……………….

          • VV says:

            I think Teresa’s issue with Melissa is that Mel is not very respectful of the Gorga parents and perhaps she feels that Melissa has kept Joey away from her parents. I also think Gorga Sr feels like his son has let him down for allowing Melissa to pulled him away from his parents and only sister and not allowing Joey to do what is expected of him to do as a first male born son. It’s very odd for Italian parents not to favor their first and only male born.
            I am sure Melissa knew what she was marrying into. I’m sure she knew what was expected of Joey and I’m sure she was visiting her parent and playing all nice when they were dating and once they got married. All that changed because she didn’t need to play nice.
            Well all of this is my opinion…

            • chismosa says:

              I totally see where you get this from VV. we all look at it differently (80/20? Lol)- and I take it that Tre, being that she has her parents living with her (in the past that was confirmed) as basically babysitters (so that she can say she doesn’t have ‘nannies’ and not technically lie), Tre has manipulated her parents into despising Melissa just as much as Tre does.
              We see Mel do the consummate d.i.l./ sil duties. I think Tre squeals and squeaks into their ears is the problem

              I agree about the Italian/ OTB/ son thing, totally, but there is truth to ‘you lose your son when he marries, but you have a daughter for life’ or however that goes

              Ter only has her mom’s ears to gossip to, she seems very lonely and isolated to me, otherwise.

              • VV says:

                I don’t think Tre has manipulated her parents into disliking her. I think Melissa did this all by herself. What pisses Tre off is Melissa’s disrespect of her parents and her brother not seeing it.
                There must be a reason for the Gorga Sr not to like her and it isn’t Teresa. If they had liked her, the Senior Gorgas would have put Tre in her place and told her not to disrespect her brothers wife.

                • Amalfi says:

                  I also agree that the Gorga parents don’t like Melissa (well beyond the Teresa factor) and they DO like Joe Giudice (why for the love of God I don’t know) and that isn’t likely to change.

                  Maybe Guidice is the devil they know but Melissa is the devil they don’t.

        • Amalfi says:

          Lots of people agree. Both those kids missed some critical intervention growing up.

        • cusi77 says:

          Me too, I suspect a learning disability… I have said this several times. I have family member who speak one language at home 100% without an accent and another outside home, and both are their mother languages.

          I do speak three languages, when I am talking or writing in one I just think in that language, I don’t translate. It does not work that way!

          I have heard Teresa speaking Italian when they went to their natal little town in Italy and she was all the time asking GoeGiu “How do you say” This and the other. .. She is not fluent in any of both languages.

          • NJBev says:

            but that’s because you are a genius, Cusi. 🙂

          • chismosa says:

            I agree Cusi- her Italian didnt seem on point to me either.
            And it’s odd because the younger one is when learning the multiple languages, the easier.

            Some wires are really crossed incorrectly up there

            • cusi77 says:

              Yeap, Chismosa, ITA. Their parents being from a tiny little place in Italy, perhaps they speak a dialect. TV helped to make unify the country to speak Italian.

              When one language is correctly spoken at home, in her case Italian, English has to be as well her first language because is the one spoken outside home, school, new friends, interaction. So she should be fluent in both. It is not about lack of intelligence. IMO.

              • chismosa says:

                Oh I thought it WAS due to lack of intelligence. I guess I misinterpret what you meant. It’s ok 😉

    • Amalfi says:

      I think Joey had an agenda and it wasn’t to be kind. Teresa went in there neutral and friendly. When he started haranguing her, she bit back and worse (at first anyway) which is her biggest downfall. Sorry, JoeGo is a mess and wants to hurt her. His own words.

      Otherwise, love you.

      • chismosa says:

        💗💗💗💗 hearts

      • NJBev says:

        I think we will all agree that this meeting was set up
        by the producers. I have no doubt. I think they both tried,
        but (in this edited version of what happened) when Teresa
        started saying the mean things about Melissa, trying to turn
        her brother against his wife and get him to agree with her,
        she failed. When he said the stuff about Joe(after she started)
        she of course got defensive. I saw a brother(Joe) that got
        very angry that his BIL called his sister a C-nt on national TV–
        Then Teresa, tried to defend her husbands actions
        “he never said it to my face, he was talking to a friend”
        (come on people, we all know it was no friend-her brother knows this
        “OH come on, you Never called Melissa a C*NT??”
        NO! maybe he never did call Melissa a C*nt, but we at least know
        he did not do it on TV.
        This situation is not going to work itself out.
        It’s not.

        They are all wrong. But they agreed to go on to national TV
        and entertain us. And that is probably the only agreement
        they all live up to. 😥

        • Amalfi says:

          I agree 100% with this, especially the part about the brother that didn’t like seeing his sister get called the C word. Never thought of it exactly like that. But I do think he also wanted to make her pay for her meanness to his beard.

          They both have such trouble communicating.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I can’t see that Joe Gorga’s offense was about watching his sister being called the c-word. He called her “garage” and is largely unapologetic about it.
            IMO, the only reason why he brought the issue up was to hurt his sister again and put down their marriage. Not to mention, to promote Melissa’s book….’ I don’t call my wife the C-word….so she must be doing something right’.

            • VV says:

              He didn’t call Melissa the C-word but he called her the B-word. Is B*tch better?

            • Amalfi says:

              Can it be both? He wanted to hurt her AND he didn’t like her being called the C word, but has no skills to say that without being verbally abusive himself.

              Not always black and white, though I think he was over the top vile.

        • chismosa says:

          The C-word is the lowest of low. And for Tre to say “I’m sure you’ve called Melissa that” is beyond beyond. Explains just about everything

          I’ll take “garbage” any day from my brother

          • LaineyLainey says:

            no. don’t take garbage. don’t take the c word. they are both awful especially coming from someone who is supposed to love you (your hubby and your brother).

        Chismosa, for some reason your two missing comments went into spam. It looks like you are posting from several different IP addresses even though you are using the same email address and ID.

        • chismosa says:

          Thanks MTH I didn’t know why it was happening.
          It was wavering between the wi-if and the regular cell phone signal. You are probably right

  122. mrspeabody says:

    Joey G is a pig with anger problems. Did anyone notice how angry he was after that scene with Teresa at the gym. He is one abusive man and I don’t care what anyone says. Anyone who would talk to his sister like that is very abusive. He was at that gym for one reason and one reason only, to have it out with his sister. He knew she’d be there and he showed up knowing that. I’d hate to see how he’d treat his wife if she ever did anything to piss him off. Good thing for her he’s still in love with her. It amazes me after all the time that has gone by how angry they still all are with Teresa. The more she gets on with her life and has nothing to do with her the angier they get with her. Caroline needs to butt out and stop egging the others on. I think Kathy was drunk, there is something wrong with Rosie mentally. Jac is the one who is obessessed with Teresa big time, she can’t let go the fact teresa has nothing to do with her any more.

    • chismosa says:

      I agree that Caroline should stay out – but I think this is her swan song anyway

      So dolled up Ape should not have walked up to and talked to Joey. She avoided him at the hospital clearly.
      If she got on with her life like she said she wouldn’t have cronies looking to be cast on the show be on and be her “spies”

      I do agree about the Don but she’s outta there.

      • Nancy says:

        Her “cronies” are going after her not the other way around though.

        • Amalfi says:

          Joey knew what he was doing. He changed his routine knowing when she works out otherwise they would’ve run into each other every day because everything was planned out (by production of course… I am sure Teresa was not truly surprised he showed up.)

          Her full makeup is silly, but it what’s done when two people film together just like Caroline and Teresa planned to film together.

          She offered and olive branch. He poked her with it and she threw it in his face. Well, if not the branch, then the drink.

          • mrspeabody says:

            she should have thrown the whole damned tree at him.

          • Nancy says:

            ITA. The entire family needs major therapy as I don’t think anything is going to change

            • cusi77 says:

              He was there BECAUSE he had to tape with Teresa… Teresa was fully make up and hair done to go to work out. This was a well known meeting arrange by Bravo producers… She needed to approach him, the abuse was uncalled for. It is the way I saw it.

            • lillybee says:

              They do and so does the rest of the cast.

          • chismosa says:

            The makeup and hair I saw on Melissa at her gym class are what my friends and I look like at the gym

            I am not going to blame JoGo because he didnt approach Tre. That’s (very clearly) just me. Shrug
            Whatever production does or doesn’t I can’t blame on one team vs the other

            • Amalfi says:

              I am not going to change your mind, but Tre did not approach him aggressively or meanly. Joe’s entire conversation was to make Teresa pay.

              • melthehound says:


              • chismosa says:

                Ain’t that how she approached them at the baptism too? All sweetness and light that one. Squealing and blowing her “love love love” kisses to just wish congratulations.

                Then she lights the fireworks and walks out.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Chimosa-at the christening Teresa did not light the fireworks-that’s all on her brother. He wanted to start the show with a bang so he showed the world what he thought of his sister by calling her garbage on national TV….that’s the kind of guy he is-he sold out his whole family for a stupid ass reality show.

                  • Amalfi says:

                    Agree. That was the worst thing I ever saw.

                    Even then, Teresa still reached out to her brother and took out any anger she had about him on Kathy (making a big deal over who was watching the baby) and Melissa, though they both deserved it to a lesser degree than JoeGo.

                    I think she makes excuses for both Joes and this is the first time I have seen her do something ugly directly to him (usually it is directed toward Melissa — and that Mel gives it way better than she takes it)

        • chismosa says:

          Nancy I meant they’re spying on Jacq and Melissa, Tre’s enemies

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      You said it! Joey knows nothing about respect – when he ripped into his parents at the Baptismal Brawl I was shock. He is abusive – did you catch the veins on his neck bulging when he was ranting? No way he treats his angel from God wife like a queen.
      ITA – two seasons of ripping Teresa and now this season they are angry with her because she moved on?
      Caroline doesn’t give good advice – she pits people against each other! Jac has a dangerous obsession named Teresa. The Wakiles make my skin crawl and Rosie is a rage filled disaster waiting to happen.

  123. chismosa says:

    And whoever thinks Teresa actually cooks buys her books! Eeeeek

  124. chismosa says:

    Bingo—- she can talk ALL she wants about Mel but Joe can’t say what all America sees about your disgusting philandering, emotionally distant father, lawbreaker ape husband.
    Go Jo. He always let Tre yell and yell and yell at him. Good for standing up. Basta
    Loved the calling out of the cooking. Hallelujah !

    STFU Ape

    Why the F is Caroline getting a call from Tre? Hypocrite

    • Amalfi says:

      I think JoeGo is mad because Teresa doesn’t correct JoeGiu when he talks badly about Melissa (but she totally does make JoeGiu stop when he trash talks her brother.)

      I can’t cheer on JoeGo’s behavior at that gym. It was ugly, mean and childish, much like the behavior he has displayed since day one.

  127. djprincessc says:

    So basically Joey Gorga is telling Teresa that the way Joe Guidice talks to her is wrong and he’s a horrible person for that. So Joe Guidice is horrible for the way he talks to Teresa but he HIMSELF isn’t, and thats his own sister? Got it!! Oh and calling Melissa a B*tch is ok, but not a C*nt. Joey Gorga is definitely on steroids, and he has a HUGE anger problem. If he and Melissa ever get a divorce, that woman better be super careful.

      BB wanted to wish you good luck this morning

      That buzzy chair reminds me of the sex and the city where Miranda can’t calm her baby down so they use a “controversial” buzzy baby seat. Then the batteries run out and Samantha puts her “personal massager 😉 ” on it to make it vibrate

      Good luck
      Just Jack 2.0

      Good morning BB!!!!! What a wonderful way to start the day 🙂 BTW Aiden is in his bouncy chair and at the moment content. Love the bouncy chairs! Had a swing with the first and I hated it. It’s not like you can lug around the swing from room to room. Have fun with Jack if it’s not too hot out a nice stroll in the neighborhood. 🙂
