Real Housewives Of New Jersey – Crapfest 2013 part 5

Welcome back folks. For those of you who are actually watching this, you are definitely hard core HW watchers. Those of you who are able to resist the temptation of looking at this train wreck, I salute you. You are much stronger people than I am. Last week, I said I would include the previous week video recap by UClosetFreak in my blog when she does them so, here it is. I’m going to go at this recap as if it’s all ‘real’, or at least, try to.

When we left off last week, Teresa and Joey had a blowout at the gym. Supposedly they hadn’t seen each other since the reunion (I assume). Remember that the show started off with hurricane aftermath, in November and it is now January in the timeline (Gia’s party was mid-January) and at the time of the hurricane, Teresa had not seen or spoken to her brother. So now they are at the gym at the same Bravo set up time. I have failed already at writing as if this was all real. Oh well.. I tried… One of the things that was said during that fight was about Melissa trash talking Teresa on Twitter (which we have all seen her and her pig sisters do). That’s one of the things that prompted him to tell her she is obsessed with his wife and then go into what a bad husband and father JoeGui is. I probably have the sequence wrong (because I’m still not watching it again) but those things were said. The important part here is the twitter bit because he pretends to not believe it or know anything about what his wife and his two Marco sisters do out there in social media land. What I remember seeing is that she approached him in a let’s be civil for a moment type of way and his intent, in that exchange, was to hurt his sister.

So, we pick up at this week’s episode with scenes of all the parties involved and those who aren’t involved and those who chose to involve themselves. Inside the Gorga home, Melissa is working on her ‘book’ with Antonia in the room. Telling Antonia what it’s about (answering her questions). Cute scene I guess. There is also some laundry folding going on, I guess it’s laundry day as well. We see Joey pulling up in his driveway in his closed up car hollering ‘Bitch, bitch, wife…’ multiple times referring of course to his sister. Mighty convenient that the camera happened to be in the driveway as Joey was driving in.In walks Joey still fuming about the fight and tells her that he’s had a rough afternoon, she asks, what’s wrong. He says he doesn’t want to talk about it while nodding at the kid so they send Antonia out of the room to put her clothes away and do her homework. Which she does leave the room but stands on the other side of the open door listening as Joey starts in telling Melissa about his fight. I don’t know if Antonia stayed there the whole time, editing would like us to believe she did not. My point of mentioning this is that kids have a way of hearing what they aren’t supposed to hear. He says he saw Teresa at the Joe-Rubber band headgym. She asks him if he’s ever seen Teresa at the gym, he says never. She starts in with ‘that’s how they are… Trash one minutes, happy how’s it going the next’… He then tells her about ‘some pocketbook thing…’ and what nonsense he thought it all was. Apparently, someone had said to Melissa something about her red Chanel bag. Someone, Not Teresa.. She answered back with something about a cast member having a public bankruptcy but can’t Rent a Chanel. Classy move there MeGo… Editing showed us the tweet which on her timeline had happened 15 hours prior. You Twitter hounds can find what day this really happened if you choose to. Anyway, Joey seems a bit shocked to learn that what Teresa told him was real. It happened. In her TH she says what else is she supposed to do. (Here’s a suggestion MeGo, respond or not to those trashing you and leave your SIL out of it. We all know you can’t do that though). Feed me nails and call me rusty because, Joey acts like this is the first he’s Mel Defends herselfknown of his wife’s behavior on twitter. She says she decided to give Teresa a taste of her own medicine. He says that kind of crap is why his parents look at her like she’s the devil. He says that’s his wife and when he sees stuff like that, he’s going to have to correct her. In other words, as I’m hearing it, slap a muzzle on her. He’s taking her to task about the nonsense and she fires back with ‘they mind F*** you’ after he told her that Teresa thinks he’s pussywhipped (he is). He says they don’t do that, this is his sister… TH Joey says that’s his sister and no matter how messed up she is, that will always be his sister and no one is to trash talk her, including his wife (except him). Did Joey just take his balls back from his wife? We will leave that there for now.

Milania SoccerIn another scene, we are at some sports complex with Teresa, Joe, Milania, and I believe, Gabriella. It’s soccer practice for the kids and we get to see Milania kick the ball around a bit. Teresa and Joe are on a spectator bench as Teresa is telling him about the fight. She thinks he bipolar, Joe thinks he has a Napoleon Syndrome. He has to explain to Teresa what that means. Perhaps they are both correct about Joey… I just think he’s an ass. Joe makes some comment about Melissa strapping it on and giving Tre tells Joe about gymit to Joey. I’ll let you mull that one over in your minds a bit. Teresa doesn’t care for him saying things like that and we are to believe those sitting nearby heard it as well.. There is some interaction with the kids and then the scene ends. Milania was the only part of this segment worth watching.

_

Now we find ourselves at some salon. I don’t know where it was, don’t particularly care. They do things there like Threading… That’s where a thread is used to pull unwanted facial hair like cleaning up the eyebrows (I saw this the first time on The Amazing Race a couple seasons ago). In attendance are Momz, Jacqueline, and Kathy. Rosie is there as well. This is another of those Bravo set ups, I’m certain of that. Momz gets a phone call and it just happens, to be Teresa. She tells Momz about the fight, Momz says she’s backing out of her involvement in it. See, Teresa went to her brother believing what she had been told that Joey was open to talking to her. Momz suggests that professional help may be in order because she’s done all she can. Teresa notes that they went to a therapist before at Joey’s insistence and we all saw how well that went. NeithJac-Mirror Mirrorer one of them is willing to budge. Said therapist even said that them taking that Napa vacation together was a bad idea. Teresa suggests that there may be some holistic therapy available, something like meditation. I don’t know a lot about that but I do know that those who do it, it helps them so, maybe Teresa is on to something, if she follows through with it. Momz wishes her luck with it and ends the phone call.

Momz took the call privately, the room was pretty crowded and since we have to hear all phone convos on this show, she couldn’t just put the phone to her ear so she could hear what Teresa is saying. While Momz is on the phone, the others are getting their free treatments and Jac can’t help but follow Momz with her eyes (at least I think that’s what she was looking at) wondering who she was talking to and what about. That’s the way I read that anyway. I will save the Blorox comments for later. Now, the call has ended and Momz comes back to the others and she tells them (after saying she was out of it), about the call and the fight. Jacqueline pipes in with ‘Buzzkill’ and lets us know that she’s lost her boner. You know, I’ve always wondered about Jac and now she’s confirmed it. Jac, if you don’t want to hear about Teresa then stop hanging out with her family. It isn’t that difficult for most people but for idiots like you, no words. I will say that most of the time absent Teresa’s name has been brought up, it wasn’t her family doing it. It was Jac’s family, or rather sister in law, Momz. Teresa’s family is willing to run with it though.  Rosie says that she doesn’t want to fly into a rage every time Teresa’s name is mentioned and this stuff between Teresa and Joey has to stop. I think, she is going to try to step up and help the brother and sister find a middle ground. That ought to go well. We’ll see.

I wrote the above after watching the First Look sometime Friday and I actually think it was the best part of the show (that isn’t saying much).. To spare myself watching the rest again, I’m going to try and wing it. I’ll get most of it, just not likely in order (but we all know with Bravo, the order doesn’t matter).. 3 aspirin, Check. Diet Pepsi, Check. Pizza, where the hell is it? Oh, I ate it already.. Check. Let’s get back to this.

I’m taking this fambly by fambly, as I wish Bravo would. Just get it all out of the way at once. We start off in the Wakile kitchen. Rich is showing Kathy a box for her Canoli kit. She doesn’t like the white shipping box because she wanted a pretty blue box with a ribbon on it. She wants the presentation, the whole package.

I’m going to stop here for a moment. I get that this is Kathy’s idea and he doesn’t seem very supportive of it. In fact, he said he married a housewife, not an entrepreneur. They got married 21 years ago she says and they’ve been together for 23.. That would put them around 1990. So we aren’t talking about 1954 post war Leave It To Beaver TV show housewife here.. Or Are we? Seems she’s made the last 20+ years of her life about being, just that. I know the role of a true housewife. Not this stuff we see on the TV on these shows.. She wears many hats and often times multiple at the same time. It’s a job that she does 24/7/365 and most are lucky if the kiddies actually remember to say thank you. There is no time clock for the job either. No punch out time. I just don’t want any of you thinking I don’t understand that. I suspect that in his crass way, Rich does too. 

K and R - You did whatHate me for saying it if you want to, I get where he’s coming from with the boxes. We are talking about pastry that are going to be delivered through the mail or worse yet, UPS and Fedex and the like. Have you ever seen the way these boxes are handled and stacked for shipping? At the post office, they just throw the box in a cart and that’s the last time you see it. The man has a point about the shipping of these kits in the fancy boxes. The packaging isn’t going to last. That’s what he meant when she protested the white box idea and he told her she better be ready to get in her car and hand deliver the boxes. I agree though he could have been a little more supportive in presenting his idea to her though. I understand Kathy’s point to.. She has a vision and she wants her ideas to be heard, and to work. That particular scene end with her words ‘I’m pulling my hair out’ or something like that. The next time we see them, he is taking her into a building where he tells her she will be able to work out. Seems he’s leased a commercial kitchen for her to do her kits in. She again, is disappointed that he has taken the reigns without consulting her. She even says, he’s the expert with this kind of stuff but she wasn’t asked. Something has been pointed out. If she is going to sell prepared food to the public, it has to be prepared in a commercial kitchen that is likely inspected by a health department. Didn’t they (he) try to open a restaurant last season? In THs she says that she gets how it has always been, that’s Richie and he isn’t going to change. She doesn’t know how much more she can stand. Take from that what you will, I say it means nothing. I think even if you didn’t see it, you get the drift of their part of crapfest part 5. Moving on.

Except to add, From Bluesky1forever on the chat blog “Kathy never made any of those desserts, she contracted with a company that makes them. They stick her name on them and sell them….remember when she met with the company’s ceo last season or the one before? It’s all just to create a storyline for her & Rich. Disgusting…

We had WAY too much of the manzoids tonight. Over in Hoboken, Momz is in her apartment with her three offspring (I know I’m not the only one who thinks they are all putting on weight, including ms lap-band). I swear this scene started out with them talking about blowjobs. Seems Christopher thinks that’s all that fat girls were good for. Maybe I got that wrong but that’s what I thought I heard. I’m sure he was somehow referring to his sister in some way. I guess Momz wants to know when they are going to get married and start popping grandkids. She needs a hobby.. Albie says he doesn’t know what kind of girl he wants (one with a kickstand?)… Lauren doesn’t know if she’s ready to get married and start having kiddies (thanks god for small favors, who really wants that one to have offspring to be just like her?).. Chris doesn’t want kids and especially daughters. Something about 0 – 10 years old, a pain in the butt, and from then on, worrying about them being a whore. I am not trying to win any favor here, but that entire scene was offensive to this dirty old man. Momz says that it’s disappointing that her kids put career in front of family, which is they way they grew up with their father, Big Al.  That part of the Manzoid torture ended with how fat or chubby Lauren once was. Momz said chubby. A little later we are at Cafface… Why? We all know Lauren isn’t ready to get married or she would be by now. Nice Manzo Boysad placement there, Bravo/NJ cast. Finally, on another day, we are back at the ‘test’ apartment with Big Al and Momz. I still think they are separating and this is Her place but we’ll play along. Al is trying to cook something and bitching about the stove. Not enough flame. Use a different burner then, Al, rather than the simmer burner. Momz is telling him the kids don’t want to get married and settle down. She thinks Big Al has missed out on a lot of life working as hard as he does. I think he’s missed out on nothing, she just hasn’t been a part of all of it. He says he thinks they turned out perfect. While he’s cooking whatever he’s cooking, the smoke alarm goes off and he says there’s no way they are selling the house (remember this apartment was to be for them to downsize). Somebody better tell Momz’s sister and Porky Pig, they will have to find a new home because I don’t believe anyone lives there (at the time of filming) besides them, and Lauren. Enough of the Manzos…

I am going to break my word here a little bit.. The Lauritas and Nicolas. The queen of the New Jersey Dry Cry… Maybe her face is so pumped full of filler that she can’t produce the water but it’s really worn my last nerve. To me, the kid looks like a normal 3 year old but I don’t live in that house. She’s crying that she’s given all these interviews and advice to these magazines and what the therapists suggest she does with the kid, isn’t working. Here is a bit of advice Jac… Before you start telling people how to be with their autistic kids, learn something about yours. Speak from the perspective of your own child if you want to talk about it to the world. What works, what doesn’t. Maybe then, someone can get something from it. I’ve said before I believe each one to be unique and that is not a one size fits all condition. I think at that point, she’s still looking for a ‘cure’ and may still be.

Well, what do we have next… The entire Marco clan going into the Gorga house. I saw 4 women enter.. Both of her sisters, her mother, and her aunt. We only saw one of the sisters, Lysa, in the edited scene though. It seems they are there with family photos, looking for one of the perfect (cheating) dad, and for Martyr Marco to tell them all about this book she’s writing (Stars let us know in the blog recaps that the title of this book is Love, Italian Style). She stands there in front of her family, in front of a camera, with a microphone and tells them (and far more people than will ever look at that book), that her father would go out and party for days at a time. She feels the need to mention it but isn’t sure she wants to (again, Cameras).. Her mother says she never caught the guy with another woman but suspected that’s what was going on. (Are these people for real? Really?). She says she has to include that to explain why she’s writing the type of book she’s writing. She says she wants to be the kind of wife that no man would ever cheat on. Got that? So not only has she thrown her dead father under the bus, but now, her mother too. I don’t think her sister, mother, or aunt, are on board with this book of hers. Could be wrong. She says she is ANIMATE that her life will not be like her mothers. Let’s end that there.

Rosie and Joe SummitReal quick, Rosie meets with Joey at some bar. They are a lot alike it seems and Rosie wants him to at least be able to get along with his sister. They talk a moment about girls.. Seems she hasn’t gotten any in 6 years. Maybe that’s her problem. Anyway, she asks him about making things right with his sister. He’s obviously not up for it because he still expects her to admit she’s wrong about everything (even though, above, he found out that Teresa wasn’t lying about the crap his wife pulls)… We’ll leave that there for a moment.

Let’s get to the real part of the show here. This is after all, The Teresa show. In Teresa’s house, what do we see Teresa doing? Typing on a computer of all things. Talk about scene placement. No secret anywhere that people don’t believe she writes her own blogs and she even said that in her TH. She also noted that people, especially her brother, say she doesn’t even cook. I’m calling that a 50/50.. I believe she can cook, we saw it on the Napa trip. Does she? that may be debatable but she Can do it. Does she write her own blogs? I believe she pens them but after what we just saw, I don’t know if she types them. Theory is, she’s working on a new cookbook… Feeding the kids the healthy way… Hey, the cookbook thing is working for her so far. Teresa gets a phone call. It’s Rosie. First time they’ve spoken, I suppose.. Rosie wants to meet up and hash things out with Teresa. Teresa says there are hurt feelings so she’s unsure about it. Rosie ‘convinces’ her that it will be fine and they should meet. Teresa agrees and tells Rosie to text her the time and place, which I guess, she does. Teresa’s voice closes the scene with “here we go again”. Lots of voice over in this episode. I’m calling BS Bravo set up on this entire scene because what happens next, sets the pace for the next several weeks, I’m sure.

Tre Summit w RosieWe see Teresa arrive at a bar, where Rosie is waiting for her, with a drink in her hand. I don’t think this is the same place where she and Joey met. They exchange pleasantries and Rosie gets T a drink from the bar… I don’t think it’s what she asked for by likely one of these liquids one of the HWs is pushing. I didn’t hear a name for it. T asked for wine and I’ve never seen wine served like that. Beside the point. The feud between Rosie’s family and Teresa’s family has nothing to do with Joey. That’s a separate fight but there may be some cross breeding of the feuds. Rosie starts with the fact that every time she hears Teresa’s name, she flies into a rage. She doesn’t want it to be that way. She says it kills her that she and her sister can’t go see T’s Rosie Summit w Trefather (I don’t know why Rosie didn’t address this with Joey, it’s his father too). Also the fact that her mother can’t see her brother. Teresa brings up the coward comment.  Rosie says her sister apologized for that. There’s a little back and fourth and each time, Rosie gets more aggravated, raising her voice, pounding on the table. Several times, this came back to Rosie’s Sister. I didn’t hear Teresa say Kathy’s name, once. It was always, ‘your sister’. People in the bar are getting uncomfortable with the scene. What Rosie doesn’t want to have happen is one of them dies (papa Gorga and Rosie’s mother) before they can see each other. Then the subject of Joey comes up. Teresa tells Rosie about the fight at the gym. About reminding Teresa that her husband calls her a C. She want to him believing he was willing to work with her and it blew up in her face. Rosie points out that the two of THEM are able to talk, Teresa and her brother should be able to now. Here comes the set up… Teresa brings up this holistic therapy thing again. About doing stress exercises with the other feuding party over an intense weekend of getting along. They will either get along or kill each other. Rosie says it’s a good idea and suggests that the Manzos and Lauritas go along. I wish she hadn’t said that. This fighting isn’t about them at all. They don’t matter in the grand scheme of this fambly. Anyway, the two of them agree that will be something to do and there we have the set up for the next few weeks. They exit the bar and go their separate ways after giving each other a hug and saying ‘love you’. That’s where the episode ends.

A few notes.. We didn’t get the drunken raging Rosie we’ve seen in the past few weeks although that is what the Bravo preview edit promised us. She got heated but not completely fly off the handle angry. I would swear I saw someone that looked just like Joe Giudice in the bar. Editing kept showing him but it was while Rosie was yelling and pounding on the table. Perhaps it was his brother, Pete.

A few one liners from the chat blog that I thought were funny…

  • Rosie is scaring the guys there! They wish to be half the man she is – Cusi77
  • I want the Kraft Zesty Italian Guy NOW – Windycitywondering
  • Joey should take the rubber band off around his head. It might make him smarter. – Nancy

That’s about it kids. Next week the Real Estate agent, Jennifer, is back meeting with MeGo for some reason talking about hearing that MeGo cheats on Joey… RuhRoh (or, Bravo edit shenanigans). See you then. Photo credits, Stars99 grabbed them for me so you would have pictures to look at here too. Thank you, Stars.

Peace, MTH.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s Mondayyy. But its a short week. 🙂

    MTH I know I say this all the time but I just love seeing “Crapfest” in your title. I just giggle. 🙂 Have a great day.

  2. Rebecca says:

    A D A M A N T

  3. Rebecca says:

    My favorite part was watching Milania dribbing the ball and she come up to another girl. She said, “get out of my way” and the look on that girls face as she moved to the side was priceless.

    Did anyone else notice when Melissa heard Joey come into the bedroom, she hid her laptop under the bed? I’m sure glad he knows EVERYTHING about his wife.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I still haven’t watched crapfest. I broke down and subscribed to Netflix and was watching Downton Abbey from the beginning.

      • Rebecca says:

        So now you get – Arrested Development, Coupling, 24, Friday Night Lights, Heroes, and all the movies from Epix. If you haven’t seen Once Upon A Time In Mexico, they just added it. I think I’ve had it for 10 years now, and there’s always something awesome to watch.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          thanks for the recommendations…my tv was turned off most of the weekend. LOL! Netflix is on my ipad!

        • plainviewsue says:

          Rebecca, I am a huge 24 and Friday Night Lights fan. My son got FNL DVD set and we binge watched it.

          24 I watched from season 4 on tv; watched first three seasons on DVD.

          Lainey, watch Lost!!!!!!!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            PVS: ” Lost” was my life for a few years back then. Love Lost. Love Sawyer. I can watch that debut pilot over and over again. I think, to date, that is THE MOST EXPENSIVE TV pilot ever filmed. I think… the stories for each character…, gives me goose bumps just thinking about it.

            • plainviewsue says:

              Lainey, I wish I knew u back then!!!! Lost is my favorite show of all time. We own the DVD set & I can’t tell you how many times we’ve rewatched the show. Everytime we watch it, we see something new.

              The pilot was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cried like a baby at the finale.

              • Powell says:

                Sue I was gonna say. I’m sure you saw something new every time. I consider Lost a classic in the tv drama genre.

            • Powell says:

              I loved Lost too Lainey. I still hate the way it ended.

        • Powell says:

          OUAT in Mexico? Ooh.

      • Stars99 says:

        Lainey Lainey So Nice We Say it Twice – We’re doing that same thing! A very good friend of mine hasn’t seen it – so on Saturdays it’s, “Dinner and Downton” night – and we’ll watch 2 or 3 episodes each week until she’s caught up! Such a great series, wasn’t it?

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It makes me want to be a better me. More genteel, more polished and what have you. I adore the Dowager. Or perhaps it would be more accurate to say I love the writer of the Dowager’s clever and cutting lines.

          • Powell says:

            Maggie Smith is excellent. I’ve loved seeing her in movies and PBS dramas for yrs. The Dowager & her quick whitted & sly remarks. So darn funny.

          • Powell says:

            And Matthew’s mother is time enough for the Dowager. What’s a Dowager anyway? I’ll have to look that up.

      • jules says:

        Love, love Netflix Lainey! I watched the first two season of Downton on my Kindle Fire. Netflix is so worth the investment. My sons watch old shows they love. They spend more time on Netflix than on real-time tv.

        • SoutheastVA says:

          I have Netflix thru my Roku box. Between the Roku and Playstation 3 Youtube access, my kids never watch regular tv anymore. We have over 300 Rocku channels loaded.

        • missusmc says:

          I grew up only being able to watch Nick at Nite, so I’m all about watching Dick Van Dyke reruns on Netflix. That, and Family Ties. Makes me feel better about myself to distance myself from reality TV and just watch some older classic TV.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Lainey, you will love it!!!!!!!! Family just finished watching Netflix show House of Cards. Definitely recommend.

      • Powell says:

        Lainey I just got a tear in my eye. Downton Abby over Crapfest 2013. You are my shero. 🙂

    • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

      Yes I noticed that and wondered why she did it. Perhaps you are correct, she has something to hide. But, some think he can’t read so she should be in the clear LOL.

    • melthehound says:

      Yeah, I saw that. Why not just close it and set it aside? Do we honestly believe she was ‘working on her book’? I don’t….

  4. I have to comment about Jaq. In the scene where they were getting the eyebrows done, could her behavior have been more childish? The rolling of eyes and smart ass comments when the rest of them were trying to have a serious conversation about Teresa’s phone call to Caroline was very telling. Now if that really took place before the Rosie-Tre drink, then Rosie already knew Tre wanted to go to the holistic place. Maybe she just wanted Kathy included? Or maybe the scenes were out of order because Rosie didn’t go BSC at the mention of Tre’s name.It is amazing how the Gorga DNA goes from 0 to 60 back to 0 so quickly. Kudos to Tre for learning to control herself a little better than she has been able to in the past.

    Great recap MTH!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      maybe she’s on meds.

    • melthehound says:

      You’re probably correct about the holistic timeline, NMD.. I didn’t pay that close attention to it. That’s one of the reasons I want these TH interviews filmed on the spot rather than month(s) later. I want true reaction in my reality TV. Rosie probably was tired of flying off at the mention of Teresa’s name. Question is, did she say it before or after the bar scene was filmed? As for Jac, I think Nicolas is more mature now, than she will ever be. At least he can’t fake it for the cameras. Maybe with his condition, he won’t be able to pick up any of her traits.

    • Powell says:

      NMD the Gorgas on both sides have more in common than they’d like to eggmit.

  5. HuskerHuny says:

    Refresh my memory here, but at last season’s reunion, wasn’t it Teresa who said that it was her father that spent more time with Kathy and Rosie when they were growing up than their own father. And wasn’t it then we got Rosie’s backstage reaction and Kathy said that Teresa’s father was a coward?

    Later in the show, Kathy did make apologies for what she said and Teresa accepted it. But not once did I hear any apology from Teresa for starting the entire debacle. Why is Teresa getting a free ride here? Why is it that Kathy, and only Kathy, has to make an apology here? Who started it? Two wrongs don’t make a right, but Teresa has some ownership in this fight as well.

    I don’t really have any love for these people, but I’m so over Teresa being the good witch. I just want her to take some responsibility as to why this family is such a mess.

    • Rebecca says:

      Nobody ever apologizes for starting the fights. They only apologize for calling each other names, and that’s if they’re made to.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      HuskerHuny,..I don’t know if she said her father spent more time with them than their own dad…it sounded to me like she was talking about the time during his illness, Tre’s pop stepped in and helped the girls and perhaps acted as their dad, when their sick dad could not. It sounded like Tre was referring to Kathy and Rosie’s dad during his illness, not like a life time of Tre’s dad doing for Kathy and Rosie. Her delivery, as usual sounded like a putdown of Kathy’s dad rather than her intention of trying to point out that Mr. Gorga had been good to Kathy’s mom’s family in their time of need. Her delivery sucked and the message was lost and it sounded like a mean, petty criticism of Kathy’s dad. Even if her intention was not to put down Kathy’s late dad,…she should have apologized for the way it came out and for offending her cousins.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Lainey – that’s not my recollection of it, but it could be. I just recall things being said in the heat of the moment and it was one put down after another and everyone was getting their shots in. I’m just saying that Kathy is not the only guilty party here, but she did apologize on TV whereas I didn’t hear anything from Teresa for her part in it. That’s all! Love ya!

        • plainviewsue says:

          It began when Teresa said her mom told her that Kathy & Richie were having marital problems at one time. Kathy called Tre’s mom a f*cking liar. Then it escalated to Kathy calling Tre’s father a coward & Tre went over to Caroline’s couch & she said that her father was always there for Kathy & Rosie. At which point Rosie bellowed I’ll cut her f*cking tongue out of her mouth.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          When Teresa apologizes, everyone says it is fake and insincere anyway.

          But in that moment, I dont see why Teresa should have to apologize. It is ok when Kathy`s family wants to air dirty laundry about Teresa and her family, but each time Teresa tried to bring up THEIR dirty laundry (not accepting Rosie`s sexuality, her father taking care of them when their dad was sick, etc) they lose their minds. What`s good for the goose…

          Anyway, Kathy called Tre`s mom a liar and her dad a coward before Tre ever mentioned that her dad was there for them.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I thought she was also referring to when their dad was sick and was just making a comment how he was there for them when their own dad couldn’t be. I didn’t think she was saying any horrible about their dad, I thought she was just commenting on what happened when they went crazy about her saying that. I think they overreacted big time.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It would sound like one of my hubby’s apologies “I’m sorry that you overreacted.” LOL!! When she saw that they were so offended i.e. murderous rage….she should have said, that’s not what I meant,..etc….

          • HuskerHuny says:

            That one made me laugh – overreacted! I will try and catch it again to hear what and how it was said. If that was the case, Teresa needs to better explain her comments instead of jumping on the defense. She really could be a peacemaker here.

      • Teresa’s reference during the reunion to her father taking care of the 4 or 5 kids of his sister wasn’t a put down. Teresa didn’t say that Kathy’s father was terminally ill (that is a private issue in her mind – one that only Kathy or Rosie should talk about) and her dad had to support (because his terminally ill BIL couldn’t work and bills had to be paid) Kathy’s family. Teresa said her dad was there for them more than their father was.
        IMHO – neither Kathy nor Rosie wanted that information made public because it would be opposite of the image they want viewers to believe. Why did Kathy say what she said (F**king Liar and Coward) about Teresa’s parents? That was way worse than what Teresa said – bad delivery or not – Kathy was out of line and while Teresa may have accepted her apology, it is obvious that Senior Gorga wasn’t ready to accept an apology from the ungrateful bitch he helped support when her family needed it.

    • Orson says:

      Well, if Tre was to apologize, that would be, for her, something like admitting that she had done something wrong. And that’s just not going to happen. And the same thing about her taking some responsibility for the family mess. It’s not going to happen.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I am pretty sure Kathy called her dad a coward first, she was telling how she tried to talk to him and he wouldn`t talk to him because he is a coward (she also called Tre`s mom a liar for saying Kathy and Richie had marriage problems, which we are witnessing now). That was when Teresa said her dad was there for them when their father couldn`t be, and that was when Rosie lost it.

      Why should Teresa apologize? They don`t want to ever acknowledge the good her father and family has done for them.

    • mkvalle says:

      It’s impossible for Teresa to apologize or admit guilt in any shape or form because she a perfect mother, wife, friend, citizen, overall human being. Oh, and she’s dumb as dirt.

    Good morning, I know it’s NJ talk but I saw this and can not resist questioning the judgement used for this selection.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That is a pretty picture of her,…did you see it? I actually like her style…I think she can’t win in this department (fashion sense) because she’s on camera with super chic ladies like Yo and Lisa. Brandi with her model body…oy!!! I wouldn’t want to stand with those three in a picture or a televised scene. I am not a Kyle fan, but I think she is very beautiful and she seems like a devoted wife and mother. She lacks in the sisterly loyalty department. I know lots lot folks do not like her fashion sense and I can respect that. I shop at Target, walmart and Kohl’s so …take my fashion comments with a big block of sea salt!!! My “designers” Apt.9, Faded Glory and such… LOL!!! But hey!!! did you see Marge Simpson? She made that list, too!!! She can still rock a strapless better than The Don (or me)!! You go, Marge!

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I hate her style but it has nothing to do with her height or anything, IMO. I just think her clothes are usually ugly. lol

      • TexasTart says:

        Yes! She has her own style that sometimes I lime and sometimes not, but her size and short waist is a chore to keep from looking dumpy and she does work around that fairly well.

    http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.atlawblog.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2F2012%2F03%2FJackson-v.-Deen-et-al.-Complaint.pdf&h=eAQFdeprr&s=1

    Good morning all. Hope this link works. It is the actual Complaint filed by Ms. Jackson on Bubba Heirs and Paula Deen. It is really disturbing. BTW Ms. Jackson is white. Worked in upper management. This lawsuit has more to do with sexual discrimination within Bubba and Paula’s enterprises than racism. Male employees in upper management were paid more and work less hours. Paula’s son’s believed that women could not do better work than men.

    • Rebecca says:

      AZGirl – This subject can get heated. if you want to take this off line, my email is rarizzo24@gmail.com. I have more into for you. Anyone else can contact me as well.

    • kendo says:

      I read this complaint. I’m surprised that they didn’t settle this. Looks like Paula is going down mainly for the actions of her brother. I find it hard to believe that she and her investors would allow this type of behavior. Also, how did this guy not get his ass beat or shot? Savanna isn’t that big of a city, seems like this info would have been known all over the place. How was this behavior not reported to the police? How was this missed by the many blogs?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Maybe no settlement b/c Lisa Jackson is lying? Or at the very least embellishing? Bubba seems like a loose cannon but no one seems to care about him-Paula Deen is taking the beating and some people are loving every minute of it. I don’t know what’s the truth at this point but I think the media seems to take every word Lisa Jackson says as fact-it’s very strange to me.

        • kendo says:

          Seems like Paula just ignored her brother’s behavior. Even after hiring consultants that confirmed that there were problems. He should have been removed and sent to rehab.
          She’s in charge, she’s responsible. I’ve always liked her. I remember when Kathy Griffin and Michael MacDonald stayed in her house, funny episode of The DList. I’m surprised the media is focusing on the n word, there’s so much more. With all these witnesses, it should be easy to prove, if it’s true! Andy asked Martha Stewart the other night about it, she had no comment!

        • AZGirl says:

          First, what made me look up the complaint in the first place was the fact that so many sponsors had literally dropped PD within a 4 day period of time. You don’t drop a client like PD. She make a huge amount of money for whomever she endorses. So these sponsor knew something we the public did not. They knew they were going to loose one of their most famous endorsers and were willing to take the bite.

          Paula Deen is the COO of all her corporations and has a interest her brothers restaurants. She knew.

          There is no excuse. Paula was aware of what was going down with Bubba. She is not a fool.
          Ms. Jackson is white. Her primary dispute is sexual discrimination and being exposed to a hostile work environment. The racist claims are due to the hostile environment claim. For us to think that this was the first complaint regarding racism is silly.

          Even if (as you claim) she is lying, then I can assure you that no attorney would touch this case unless there was reasonable evidence supporting such violent claims. Not worth the time or money. My thought is that if one iota of this Complaint then it is a sad day for America.

          I would think that a prudent attorney representing someone such as PD (knowing full well what she was could loose) would settle in a HEART BEAT.
          1.2 Mil is peanuts compared to having this lawsuit eventually leaked through deposition transcripts.

          This is more than the use of the “n” word.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            My whole problem is that thus far Paula Deen had only admitted to saying the N word-the rest is allegation-if it’s proven to be all true-that’s a different thing. The press is acting like she admitted to every allegation-I don’t understand it. I don’t understand how it can be more than saying the N word when nothing else has been proven.
            Lisa Jackson primary dispute may be sexual harassment but that’s not what is in the press-Paula Deen is being billed as an ignorant racist-not as a woman who promotes sexual discrimanation. I don’t think the press believe sexual harassment/discrimanation is as juicy as being a racist. That’s my major problem with this entire story.
            I wonder how many people have actually come forward to support Lisa Jackson claims? I also wonder why this wasn’t a class action suit if so many people are feeling the same way.

            • AZGirl says:

              Jill I totally understand your frustration. The press are dogs. They can only reveal what has been leaked as true. In the deposition Paula did admit to using the “N” word. On its face this is not unusual. This happens all the time.
              What peaked my curiosity is what happened afterwards. Paula not only lost Foodnetwork, the ham company, her publicist, but her restaurant chain in the casinos in the south ( I am assuming Harrahs). That is a “sh#t load” of stuff in a 4 day period of time.

              If Ms. Jackson were asking a ridiculous amount i.e. 5 mil then I would be really suspicious of her claims. She is not. I think Ms Jackson wanted to see a business whom discriminated against people of color go out of business. 1.2 mil. is not enough for what she is going through.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                AZ-what strikes me as odd is the fact that she wants to see that but where are the other people who worked there? Why aren’t the people who were actually discriminated against not going to also benefit from the suit? This is what makes me ink she is only after money and she doesn’t care about her co-workers. Of course I don’t know what is true and what isn’t-but some things just don’t add up for me.

  10. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!!! Hope everyone’s day is going great! Thank you MTH for another spectacular blog! Was hoping you would make up stuff to keep it interesting. 🙂

    NMD I answered your question on the last blog regarding the “cannolis.” In NJ you are required to prepare any food for retail in a commercial kitchen. Also you are required to have the proper licenses, certifications as well as insurance. Anyone catch the name of Kathy’s company? I don’t recall seeing her “branding?” Which leads me to believe she is making her “cannoli’s” out of her kitchen. Of course on the books Ritche has “rented” kitchen time. Too many things just don’t add up. For one if she were selling a mass amount where is the the racks filled with cannolis? In the previews it appears that she only has a half a tray she is preparing? Though I could be wrong. The shells can be made on site but I don’t recall seeing a commercial fryer on the ovens. Which is not a big deal she may be manually frying them on the stovetop. Though that would take forever if she plans on selling it to the masses. Too many things don’t make sense and in all honesty there is nothing proprietary about cannolis. It’s not a popular pastry such as cookies would be unless it’s wildly popular in New Jersey. Frankly it’s an odd choice since it’s perishable and will only keep for a day or so unless it’s frozen.

    • Rebecca says:

      It’s a marsala shell filled with ricotta, sugar, a flavoring (I use Sambuca) and chopped chocolate or marmalade.

      If anyone (Teresa) makes these, is she going to claim it’s her recipe?

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        Everybody knows (in my best Phaedra voice) that I created all the cannoli recipes on planet Earth! There I said it!! Anyone who doesn’t believe me can go scratch!LOL

        • lulu says:

          Lol!!!! No no no a pastry chef that i worked with from a big name Italian hotel btw had the BEST cannoli, or for that matter anything dolce recipes lol!!! ;). Fyi was very good.

      • lulu says:

        This reminds me of a cannoli salesman that I met at a bakery expo. He had the same idea a kit that he tried to sell to bakeries, hotels etc. He tried to sell them at the hotel I was working at. He got a hold of my personal info called me. Tried to get me to help him sell it to the purchasing director. Creeped me out suffice to say lost the sale.

        Anywho personally unless its made fresh I don’t like cannoli’s. They sog out quickly.rd

      • Rebecca says:

        $54for 24 mini cannolis??? No.

        That’s just stupid. It’s like $8 worth of ingredientzes.

        • Rebecca says:

          BTW, allergens are not listed. If you are allergic to soy, you’re SOL. And she uses fake vanilla. Ew.

    • LavaLady says:

      LuLu, they are actually pretty popular in my neck of the woods, NJ. You will see them at almost every party and especially holidays. They carry make your own kits at places like Costco, where the shells are provided and you mix up the filling yourself.

    • melthehound says:

      😀 .

  11. VV says:

    Jeff, your recaps are the best!!! Better than the show.

    We are all to Bravo savy by now to know this is all FAKE and or pre-arrange scenes. Reactions “of some” cast members might be the only no fake part if this show.

    Not agreeing with the 50/50 comment Teresa cooks. She’s old fashion I’m sure she was brought in the kitchen with her mom teaching her. Sure, anybody can cook Italian, but not everybody has three NYT best sellers cooking books.
    Does she writes her blogs? I think she has somebody express for her what she wants to say. We know she’s not eloquent, “perhaps” she’s better at writing her thoughts Somebody brought up a typo Tre made while typing ( there is always spell check for that)

    I despise Medussa and last night on Twitter her sell out sisters and mom were supporting her on that embarrassing scene. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. All in the name of fame.

    • missusmc says:

      Weren’t Joey and Teresa raised speaking Italian in the home? It’s possible they weren’t encouraged to write in English, and maybe they arent completely fluent in written English. That could explain Teresa’s typing issues and requiring help with her blogs, as well as joeys issues with reading. It doesn’t diminish their intelligence( which drives me crazy when I see that about Joey- there is plenty to criticize him for without making fun of his reading skills). It’s a pretty common issue for kids who are first generation Americans. Schools are much better at helping these kids today, but probably not so much when they were growing up.

      • VV says:

        My understand is Teresa has a College Degree frim Berkeley College and got a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management. She worked at Macy’s as a buyer. So, some skills she must posses.

        • missusmc says:

          Right. But you can make it through college without being a perfect writer, as long as you have the right degree. I just don’t think that it’s 100% fair to judge T and Joey on their writing/reading skills, because there could be a legitimate reason for that. I dont think teresa is as dimwitted as she appears. Or maybe she and Joey are just dumb. Who knows? I don’t think any of these cast members are the brightest.

        • Orson says:

          I suspect Tre got diplomas, not degrees.

        • princesspindy says:

          Are you talking about UC Berkeley? Or is there some college in NJ named Berkeley?

          • VV says:

            I got it from her Bravo Bio. I am 100% sure is not UC Berkeley. You’ll have to Google that 🙂

          • windycitywondering2 says:

            IIRC – it is a state college or junior college in New Jersey close to where Teresa lived. The fact that Melissa went to college to be a teacher is what astounds me!

            • VV says:

              Did she ever worked as a Teacher? If yes, for How long?

              • LavaLady says:

                I think she met her husband right around the time of graduation, and did not actually every work as a teacher.

            • LavaLady says:

              Berkeley College is in NJ. In my college years, around 1977 – 1982 it was strictly a secretarial school, with one and two year programs. It morphed over the years into a college, now offering 4 year degrees.

              I believe Melissa does have teaching degree from a NJ college as well, possibly Jersey City State.

              • LavaLady says:

                It is also possible that Theresa’s degree from Berkeley is a 2 year degree also known as an Associate’s Degree.

          • melthehound says:

            I don’t think Teresa went to UC Berkley. I doubt any of them could even get past the application process. My cousin graduated second or third of her HS class and she couldn’t get in. As for MeGo, she showed a document last season with her name on it that looked like a degree from somewhere.

    • jules says:

      Mel, thanks for the recaps. You are a braver man than I. I started reading your recap but honestly, I got to the part with Jacqueline saying “buzzkill” and realized I have zero interest in these people in a blog or on television. I couldn’t even finish reading but I truly do not care about any of them. I find your comments and the rest of the wonderful comments far more interesting and funny. Thanks for taking one for the team. I do appreciate it!

    Good Morning Everyone! Thank you for the Blog MelTheHound! Now I am in peace I understood everything from last night Episode! It is truly and Crapfest! Haa!

    My favorite part was the Margo women’s reunion to bring photos for Melissa’s book (To fill out space what otherwise would be instead of a book a “Pamphlet”) Women perfectly make up, supporting the idea that what makes a man being loyal to his wife is in the hands of the wife… Suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuure! I wonder what kind of a nitwit will buy her advice book! Melissa’s mom must be very proud to hear that her daughter doesn’t want to be anything like she is! Way to go Melissa! Daddy was a cheater cuz mom’s fault! I Dare you to think the same when mom is gone!

      Completely agree Cusi 🙂 I’ve known couples (friend’s parents) where one or the other appeared to be the perfect spouse. Only to find out later the other was a complete cheater. One, on the youngest kid’s 18th birthday, announced he was leaving for someone else. A couple years later (he was a local public official), he was busted as a john in a hotel known for prostitution.

  15. VV says:

    Where’s Lisa Renee?

  16. VV says:

    Here’s my theory on the Caroline’s apartment and not filming at her house. It could be that by her “moving” to this apartment Bravo would film more the Jr Clowns and their new business venture all conveniently located in Hoboken. I seriously doubt they live there. I honestly think this apartment was and is used exclusively to shoot the show.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Considering her mansion is decorated to the hilt – that barren apartment screams just for scenes with her beautiful, hardworking, handsome boyz – and when Lauren is in those scenes she just oozes resentment.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I agree that something sneaky is up with the apartment. Is Al running for office again? Is this to establish a different residence for tax purposes?

      Last week, when Momz and Beloved Son 2 (BS2?) went back to the big house to get the “good china” (when they discovered the pig), I am very sure I saw her pick up a 4″ stack of paper plates and slip them into her paper bag. So…”good china” is paper. BS2 took one lamp. So the visit was for filming purposes only.

    • chismosa says:

      VV This totally goes with the theory that Caro is only on the show anymore for her sons.
      I completely agree

    • pat says:

      I’m not watching NJ, but read a rumor that the move to the Hoboken apt was because one of the Manzo sons is planning a run for political office there, maybe Mayor. So they’re trying to establish a family presence there.

      • $25000/ says:

        That makes sense. It must be Albie. Maybe that’s why Albie’s been more cicumspect and PC when expressing this thoughts and opinions on women on national TV than has Chris.

      • chismosa says:

        The mayor of Hoboken has been SO incredibly busy dealing with so much $hit in her past time there i don’t see any of the Manzo boys having the smarts or fortitude for that.

        Now, the “connections” wink wink, to get in to a race…….hmmm
        Maybe ……..😉😉😉

          • chismosa says:

            🙄

      • VV says:

        Prince Albert of Brownstone running for office?!!!! That’s very smart. Run for office after being on a reality show for four years. Way to give your opposition ammunition.

  17. Orson says:

    Mel, you did a great recap. Considering what you had to work with, you deserve two cookies. This may turn out to be one of my Meta Posts. Sorry.

    My cousin started a catering business in her home. It started with an add-on to her kitchen (sort of like an enclosed porch?) with refrigerators, freezers, ovens, stoves, and sinks dedicated to the business. And not only did it have to pass Health inspections, but it had to pass the local committee’s inspection for Kosher Certification. That means separate fridges, freezers, plates, and utensils for meat and dairy. Eventually, she moved the business to a separate facility and moved all the appliances there. So, it can be done in the home, but very likely NOT in the home kitchen. Though a home kitchen is probably good enough to experiment and try out recipes.

    Re: the Teresa and Rosie summit. True, Rosie loses points for shouting and pounding on tables, but didn’t Teresa become the stand out star of RHNJ by shouting “prostitute whore” and flipping a table? Shouldn’t stuff go both ways if you want to be fair?

    Re; Teresa and Joe and this holistic healing, because they tried therapy and it didn’t work. They didn’t *try* therapy. They *went* to a therapist. ONCE. They didn’t want therapy, they wanted a third party to listen to them and pronounce that the other one was the cause of all the problems. Sort of like Judge Judy. And the only advice the therapist could give them after that one session was “Don’t take that trip to California together”. Which they both ignored and we know how well that turned out. Tre wants a quick fix for problems which would seriously take years of psychotherapy to solve. I think they should lower the bar a bit to start and aim for being able to be in each other’s presence for 15 minutes without an explosion. Work that up slowly to an hour. Then start over at 10 minutes with their spouses present too. With the ultimate goal of being able to allow their children to visit and play together for an hour. Anything more like that, like a peaceful holiday family dinner, would be years in the offing.

    Yes, Nicholas had a moment that was taped and broadcast on television. Here’s the thing… that sort of thing happens with children on the autism spectrum. It’s normal. It’s not good, but it happens. My friend who has 2 daughters on the spectrum and blogs about it introduced me to the word “tearstorm”. And Jaq feels she’s failed as a mother when tearstorms happen. Well, from what I understand, this is normal too for austism spectrum parents. I just think this is a window on what life is really like for families in this situation. It’s kind of like reality, you know? Putting this sort of thing on TV might teach others what it’s like and show others that they’re not the only one struggling to find a way to reach their children. No, it’s not all pleasant and the situation won’t be solved before the closing credits or even by the end of the season. I think it’s true Reality TV.

    Hell, what do I know about it anyway?

    :: getting down from my soap box ::

    • mrs peabody says:

      I know nothing about autism but I think what we see with him is probably the only thing real on this show.

    • melthehound says:

      That’s fine, Orson.. I’m just so over the NJ Dry Cry (from all of them) and Bravo setups that I find it hard, to take seriously, anything that happens with any of them. Jac is the queen of that act, always has been. If I thought, Bravo was really interested in educating anyone and that she wasn’t using her son for a storyline, I might give those scenes more positive attention. Since I don’t know much about the subject of autism, I choose to let the people who do, discuss it if they want to. I really hope the best for that kid but I don’t think camera crews are it. That’s why for the most part, I ignore those scenes in the recaps.

      I never actually saw it but you may be correct. If Teresa hadn’t flipped that table in a rage of her own, she might just be some bit player on the show if she was even still there. The problem with Rosie as I see it, is we are in the 3rd plus season with all the fighting, and she has now added a new dimension to it, to perpetuate it. At the end of season 4, everyone including Momz, was at Teresa’s throat. Remember that Teresa ruined her relationship with her sister. It was all Teresa’s fault. Now, Momz has penned an advice book and she needs to sell the print. So Momz is no longer really trashing Teresa for anything (really) and we need a new character to do it. Who better than the drunken Rosie?

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Orson – that’s a very fair perspective and well-written.

      • Orson says:

        Thank you.

      • Overit! says:

        All 3 year olds still definitely have little control over their emotions. Some days my three year old daughter throws so many tantrums I want to cry too! Being a paren to toddlers can be frustrating and hard no matter what! I try to be firm consistent and fair but some days it’s like screw it! I want to yell and cry too 🙂

    • VV says:

      Joey also made quite an introduction to us viewers when he first came to the show on S1. Pounding the table, calling his sister garbage, and lunging at JoeGiudice.
      The table pounding and flipping must be genetic. After all Italians are passionate and very emotional.

      • Rebecca says:

        We refer to one of my grandmothers as “Grandma Bang The Table.”

      • chismosa says:

        So then Danielle was the same as Teresa in instigating all that.

        I hope you’re kidding about the Italians? You’re being sarcastic right, lol!?

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      I don’t think that Teresa’s table flip/prostitution whore made her a standout/star. She was goofy, outlandish, regularly butchered the English language, loved to embarrass her husband with PDAs, loved to dress her girls up like mini Barbie dolls, was loyal to Caroline and Wacky when they declared Danielle the enemy and loved to have adventures with her bff! Add that to the fact that she has “it”, that everyone attacked her for two seasons straight, and she is the only RHNJ with any measurable success with her brand. Like her or hate her – she is fun to watch and she makes me laugh.

      • missusmc says:

        I don’t think it made her the standout/star, but I think it started the idea of Teresa being scrappy, and Teresa pushing Andy Cohen at the reunion solidified that. The Jerry Springer mentality then took over the entire show when Melissa joined the show. I don’t think producers would have been so quick to cast Mel if Teresa hadn’t already established that she was willing to throw down (and let’s not forgot her “innocent” confrontation at the Posche Fashion Show with Danielle that started a huge fight; the night Ashleeeee pulled her extensions out)

      • kendo says:

        I think people love that table flip scene, because at the time she was being talked down to and being ignored, she stood up for herself, even Joe got a big kick out of it, he had a huge smile on his face

    • chismosa says:

      So funny you’re take on “trying therapy” is how many of my family and friends feel about Accupuncture and I try to say —-you have to keep going !!!

      Just like therapy. You don’t go just once. Now THAT I’ll agree is an old-school OTB way of thinking because I experience that. But guess what Tre —-you grew up here (language skills to the contrary)

  18. mrs peabody says:

    Well isn’t this interesting, I just read Milessa’s blog over on the bravo sit and her 4-5 comments and now everyone is gone. She was being called out about her actions

    • mrs peabody says:

      and now they are back, what is going on, is it my computer or the bravo site? or maybe it’s my mind. Oh no I’ve lost it. I think I’ll take a nap. Oh wait, it’s too early for that. what to do

      • plainviewsue says:

        After reading that blog, no way in hell are Teresa & Melissa in a good place. If I was Teresa, I would be civil, say hello and that is it.

  19. VV says:

    Since they are ALL writing Manifestos. Here it goes:

    Melissa-Lier-Lier Pants on Fire Manifesto is Up! . . . Melissa-Lier-Lier Pants on Fire Manifesto is Up!

  20. plainviewsue says:

    I cannot stand that b*tch Wendy Williams. Always against Teresa. She said today, “Teresa does not cook.” She said that because Joey Marco said that & if he said it, it must be gospel?

    That’s her livelihood. Teresa should never ever go on that show. And of course she loves Rosie.

    Interesting comment. She said she couldn’t watch when it was on, so she watched it on DVD. Which means that Andy sends her dvd’s to watch??????

    BTW, Richie was in rare form last night on twitter. Absoslutely vile disgusting tweets sent to women, which of course he deleted.

    There is a twitter account @wakilemustgo. I think that’s how it’s spelled. They have screen shots of all of the tweets.

    • VV says:

      Do you think Joe Giudice would put up with a wife that can’t cook? Joe Giudice was brought up old Italian school. After all, wasn’t it Melissa who said on S1 that her husband (Joey Gorga) was brought up Italian and expects to have a warm meal when he come home from work.

      The Idiot Brother wanted to hurt his sister. His half brain didn’t come up with that thought though. That statement came straight from his manipulative wife. He was just repeating his lines like he has for three seasons now.

      • Overit! says:

        The debate over whether tre can cook is ludicrous! Of course she does! That was so ridiculous that she should have laughed when he said that. But Joey brought that our because he knew she would loose her sh*# over that allegation. She shouldn’t have given him the satisfaction IMHO

    • melthehound says:

      I haven’t liked or watched Wendy in over a year… She is always too far into the fighting for my liking. I get that she wouldn’t have a show without it the trashy gossip but something about her joy in seeing these celeb fights perpetuated just put me off of her and her show. I know Teresa cooks, I didn’t mean to imply that she doesn’t with my 50/50 statement. I do think she has some help around the house these days though.

      As for Richie, I tried to cut the guy some slack and that’s what he does. For such a ‘smart’ businessman, he isn’t very intelligent. If he’s going to delete his stuff, he shouldn’t put it out there to begin with because even peons like us know that, once on the internet, always on the internet.

      • mm in oc says:

        Note regarding cooking. I’m an awesome cook. However, I don’t cook that often (mainly because I’m single and it’s not fun to cook for one). My mom cooked every day when we were growing up, but she wasn’t a great cook (processed foods were all the rage in the 70s). So why Teresa’s idiot brother is giving her a hard time about cooking, I just don’t get it. It’s a silly petty argument and the only reason he’s doing that is to hurt her financially. Screw you JoGo!

    • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

      I’m pretty much getting sick of Wendy myself and I’m tired of her talking about her Broadway show. She is really pleased with all the offers she is getting to do other stuff even though her “acting” doesn’t warrant it.

    • chismosa says:

      Sorry– dont want to engage but Wendy has stated that she does get advance copies of certain Bravo shows
      I think certain magazines, blogs, TV shows do get advanced screeners on some things, due to when they have to film or go to print, etc.

  21. Powell says:

    MomZ should be so proud of her offspring. ;-/ MTH please insert the eye roll for me & a gag me. face.

    • melthehound says:

      Ha! 😆 🙄

      • Powell says:

        Thks. 🙂

      • Overit! says:

        MTH- I’m glad you too felt offended by the scene where Chris went on and on about not wanting daughters! What a pig. Momz should be proud.

        • melthehound says:

          That was just a plain shitty thing for him to say… It’s good that he doesn’t want Any kids if that’s really his notion about having a daughter. I get being protective but, c’mon….

  22. VV says:

    Question:

    Who wears the pants in the Gorga house, Melissa or Joey?

    Who wears the pants in the Giudice house, Teresa or Joe?

    *NOTE: I’m not referring to as bread winner but more in term of who calls the shots.

  23. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Great recap Jeff-I love reading your take on things-

    So Melissa basically told her mother it was all her fault that the dad cheated-too bad the mom didnt have a book about Italian style lovin’ cause then she would for sure know how to keep her husband happy and he would never ever have cheated on her!!! Way to go Melissa -you came on the show to show us how evil you sister-in-law is and now we get to see how sucky your mom was as a wife-excellent job!!! Did you see Melissa’s sisters face when she was talking about her book??? She looked at her like she wanted to say “really Stupid????”…
    Rosie is trying WAAAAAAAY to hard this season-she is over the top and looks like an ass-she needs to calm the eff down!!!
    Richie and Kathy are very desperate for a story line and you can see Kathy is not comfortable with this marriage problem plot they are trying to sell us…richie doesn’t seem to mind-he is a jerk!!
    The Manzo apartment thing is beyond suspicious-why do they need it? Why do they have it? It makes zero sense and Al doesn’t seem to like it.
    Jac….no words-I’m done with her and her immature antics. I wish she would leave her sweet little boy off the show-she seems on the verge of a break down but not b-c of her son. She butts in where she needs to butt out…I don’t like her at all this season.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      JntJ – my husband saw Wacky’s Liar TH last night – the look he gave me afterwards was that one that goes “are you kidding me? why do you watch this s*#t!?!”…..I had to look away quickly in shame!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh I know the look…my husband gives me that look as he leaves the room whenever the HWs are on!!!!

        • shamrockblonde says:

          LOL!! – my husband walked in while I was watching it and said “still? Still you watch this mess?” with a look that I used to reserve for my girls when they decided to cover the bathroom in baby powder at the age of 10 – way too old to not know any better!!! – totally agree with Jill!

    • melthehound says:

      These people really should keep quiet between seasons. By the time they finally air, we already know that most of what we’re seeing is BS. I don’t believe most of what I’m seeing and I further don’t believe that Teresa and Melissa are ‘good’ now. If they are, they won’t be after the reunion. It isn’t in any of them to just let things drop. As for Momz and Hoboken, I think her nipples were getting sore from stretching all the way to Hoboken so she moved there to ease the pain.

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ that’s just how I perceived what Mel said. Like MTH said she thru her mom under the bus but not only that. She got monster truck sized tires, backed the truck up & drove it right over her mom’s heart. Damn & I thought Carrie took revenge on her mom.

    • melthehound says:

      Just the subject of the link sends a cold chill down my spine.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Right????

        • Orson says:

          Relax. Some hustlers are just trying to cash in on Paula’s recent notoriety, made an offer, and promptly announced they had made the offer. If PD or her people actually got the letter it rapidly went into the circular file. PD had nothing more to do with this.

          • melthehound says:

            I’m sure of that, Orson… Just the idea though ::::shudder::::

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              That’s the point Orson-it’s so ridiculous that the offer was even made but then the press jumps on it to show their stupidity!!!

  24. Rebecca says:

    Well, at least Melissa didn’t blame Teresa for her father cheating on her mother.

  25. windycitywondering2 says:

    Jeff – good recap and last night’s chat was fun.
    IMHO, the only way to watch RHNJ is with my blog buddies.
    And that stinking, no good, tease of a Kraft Italian Zesty guy never showed up!!!

    • melthehound says:

      I agree.. If it wasn’t for the people here, I wouldn’t be watching any of this garbage anymore. It wouldn’t be any fun… Sorry the Kraft dude stood you up WCW 😀

  26. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    OMG-I’m watching the new Bravo show Below Deck and I know one of the guys on the yacht. He isn’t one of the workers he is one of the people who chartered the yacht-he is acting like a complete tool and quite frankly I can’t believe I’m eggmitting that I know him!!! His name is (God help me) Johnny “eyelash”….

    • Kansas Girl says:

      What does he report about being on the show? Did they ask him to play a tool? Is it set up like all the other shows?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I should have said “I knew him”…I haven’t seen him in years so I don’t really know what the deal is!!

    • T-Rex says:

      JJNJ I posted a link last week that this show is a complete fake, the only “real” person on the ship is the Captain as Bravo was required by the Ship’s owner to have him on board the whole time. Bravo chartered the boat for 5 weeks to do the filming, only 3 members of the fake crew actually have previous yacht experience, the chef, the Head Stew and the first mate with the weird hair, all the others are wannabe actors. The folks supposedly “chartering” the boats during this period are fake setup clients that Bravo used to film the outrageous behaviour. http://www.the-triton.com/article/the-reality-of-below-deck-on-bravo.html

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I saw you posted that T-Rex and after watching it I believe it’s completely fake!!!!

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Ah. I saw the preview (first epi?) weeks ago and it seemed fake. Another show I don’t need to watch.

      • Powell says:

        Well dang T-Rex. So you know how NBC is the Peacock channel? So I guess Bravo is the Fake channel. They can’t even be 5% real. They are going down hill by the tv season.

    • Powell says:

      HA!! Funny JNNTJ. The next time you see Johnny “eyelash” you can tell him you saw his “complete toolness” on tv.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I would love to be able to tell him that Powell! My sister called me last night to tell me he was on the show…we haven’t stopped laughing about it!!!

  27. windycitywondering2 says:

    Um, do you guys have the gastric surgery ad next to Melissa’s blog? Lapband will only have to pay $480 on her next “diet”!

  28. realhousewifeva says:

    I watched the preview clip for next week and that whole scene with Jacqueline and Kathy is just FAKE. They are shopping and Teresa calls, so Kathy answers it on speaker (not even stepping away for a second?) Jacqueline jumps in so fast to the convo…like right on cue 😉 It is all so set up and phony now.

    • melthehound says:

      Right on cue… yes?

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Wacky Jacky couldn’t grab that phone fast enough! Filet of Teresa is what she does best. And Kathy “acts” like she didn’t want that convo to happen….maybe if she tried not smirking when the BSCs go off on Teresa, someone might believe her step away from the drama/peacemaker spiel.

    • lillybee says:

      I just can’t picture Jac and Kathy being friends in the real world.

  29. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:
    • melthehound says:

      Oh now she’s in rehab…. Boo-freaking-hoo for her. Busted for DUI… What a pig. Michael Lohan and the tanning mom endorse the place… Good to know.

  30. missusmc says:

    I would also like to point out that Jacqueline announced a few days ago that the new BLK water labels now read “defy expectations,” a phrase you may remember was used in her blog when she wrote about Nicholas saying I Love You. Way to use your son for your failing business there, Jac.

    • Rebecca says:

      I’m totally making that grilled corn.

      Ramona has a really nice garden.

      • TexasTart says:

        The recent post she made with a pic of her garden/pool area at her S. Hampton place was so gorgeous and I wondered how much of that she did on her own and maybe she plants but someone maintains…IDK other than she doesn’t live the full time. I guess I didn’t realize she had a green thumb until now!

  33. VV says:

    Melissa tweeted:

    “Hi! Off to rehearsal. My bravo blog is up. Remember this is how I felt then. We worked through a lot of this now.”

    Is she taking a page from Caroline’s play book? I mean Melissa has books to sell you know…

    • mrspeabody says:

      yep and it’s not working, i still won’t buy her or caroline’s book but I am thinking of getting teresa’s new one. The corn looks good

      • chismosa says:

        She’s a thug to me. Do they check if she takes testosterone?
        I just don’t care for her style of play or dress, or way she comes across on/off the court. Glad someone else will have a chance
        🙂
        Ain’t no biggie. She’s just SOooooo not my cup of passion fruit iced tea.

        • TexasTart says:

          Fine with me if you don’t like her…I was curious what the offense was though. She is very thick muscled is all I thought, because her face is still feminine, no chisled look I have seen on bodybuilders, you know what I mean. I figured they did drug testing for the sport at this level, but don’t know for sure….just saying I am skeptical that anything besides standard supplements and hard work there.

          • Nancy says:

            I actually feel sorry for her and her sister as their childhood was taken away from them.
            I think they have lived in a bubble and that is why they act the way they do.

          • Laineylainey says:

            I do not have a problem with her looks. I find her quite beautiful! In fact. However she was recently quoted making ignorant and insensitive comments about the rape victim from that little town where kids were tweeting each other – the Steubennville case. It was kinda sad to think that this young lady has to spend her life coming to terms with what happened, I am sure it doesn’t help to have one of the richest, most accomplished, famous professional female athletes making critical and hurtful comments about you. I believe Serena did “apologize” (made excuses, haughtily listed her charitable work)… Here… Just founded this link http://thinkprogress.org/sports/2013/06/25/2209271/serena-williams-issues-new-apology-for-steubenville-rape-comments/?mobile=wt

            Interestingly, she lost none of her endorsements.

            • chismosa says:

              Lainey she also started a thing with Maria sharapova about love lives. recently

              • Laineylainey says:

                Yeah, petty drama..no one is immune, I guess! but her Steubennville comments were on a whole notha level.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Lainey-I didn’t know anything about this! Her remarks were judgmental and insensitive at best. What kind of message does that send-she is placing all the blame on the girl-the exact opposite of what I’m hoping her foundation stands for. Calling the girl lucky was the kicker for me. Why is this not all over the media? I don’t understand it-AT ALL!!!!!

            • TexasTart says:

              Interesting…what was she thinking?!!!!! Oh she was not thinking. :-/

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Yeah, that happens a lot; where someone who is super accomplished in their field and they’re asked their opinion on some issue…people seem to assume that they are super intelligent (because of their God-given athletic talent, beauty, etc) and will have something profound to add to the discussion; when in reality SOME of these high profile folk aren’t really that deep, or thoughtful or quick witted (some actually have little or no formal education because they’ve been working and earning – from a very young age). They are accustomed to being “handled” and represented by highly qualified, highly educated people (if they’re lucky) people. I believe the final draft of her apology was deemed acceptable; but doesn’t it seem like it was very polished, very professional, etc. Which is fine, but my point is that the words didn’t come from her…they may represent her true feelings…but that apology was worked and massaged by others who get paid to give opinions. What’s my point? I think when asked, or not asked, she should have put her agent or PR people to work and then released her statement. She shouldn’t have tried to answer it for herself by herself. I doubt we’ll be hearing directly from her anytime soon…maybe she learned her lesson. JMO That sounds mean, doesn’t it? I don’t mean to put her down; she’s a credit to her sport, for sure and I respect that about her. I love to watch her play. She lost some points for this whole thing when it could have easily been avoided. She’s an adult now; she’s learning, I suppose. There’s no instruction manual for any of us.

    Thank you MTH/Jeff for recap. Might watch tonight.

  36. Powell says:

    AZGirl I meant to say to you this morn how saddened I was to see the news of the 19 Firefighters that died in Prescott. They were true heroes. Your state has had horrible fires and the summer is just getting started.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      So sad. I’m heart broken for those firefighters and their families.

    • chismosa says:

      I agree Powell, thanks for saying this. How incredibly heartbreaking

    • Laineylainey says:

      So sad

    • AZGirl says:

      I know. I was shocked. These firefighters are amazing brave group of men and WOMEN. That fire just had no direction. It was everywhere. It was started by lightning and the winds were high. All of them were from an elite group of “hot shot” first responders.

  37. VV says:

    Thank you Bravo for confirming ONCE AGAIN. You reality shows ARE NOT REALITY. THEY ARE SCRIPTED!!!
    Over at Bravo the Dish. They did a promotional piece a story on Melissa’s marriage title Joe and I have a Real Marriage. They have the scene about the Chanel bag Twitter message. The title if the video “Watch Joe Educate Melissa about her Behavior”

    So, is not that Joe grew a pair of cojones. He is once again being used by his wife in order to sell books.

  38. Watching CrapFest is worse than watching paint dry. At least at the end of watching paint dry you can hang pictures up. In CrapFest you want to hang your remote up and find a channel to watch forever. NOT Bravo channel for sure!!
    I say “Same Sh*t Different Day” when it comes to NJ. Mel I agree a set up for the big “We make them all be together for a fight scene at some point” like last years end of the wine country get away.
    I still can’t pick a side since I can’t stand either side anymore. I wanted to keep an open mind, but my mind is numb and closed to NJ. I can’t even watch the Princesses.
    I’m fed up with Bravo. I’ll finish out OC and then I’m hanging up my Bravo hat and embracing BB15 (it is 15 isn’t it?)
    I had a fairly great end of the week after a sh*tty start last week. A visit to ER mid week soured my mood, but it improved.
    I bought a BIKE yesterday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait to pick it up tomorrow and begin my riding by the 5th. I have way too much to do before then to go biking. I’m getting my two oldest Grandkids (6 yrs and 4 yrs) overnight on the 4th of July. I need to find my off bug repellant before then because I agreed to go watch fireworks with them.
    NMD I absolutely LOVE that you took on the blog and are giving us a home to land and chat about all things TV.
    Mel and Stars thanks for the RHW recaps and blogs. BB you crack me up….oh dear I know I’m forgetting someone so please forgive me.

      “At least at the end of watching paint dry you can hang up pictures.” LOL Diana. Too funny lady. 🙂

      Congrats on the bike. I hope that makes a difference w/tour illness. I hope your dad is doing well too.

      I’ve never changef sides, I’m just not defending it as hard as I use to. Haven’t even felt the need to unleash Teresa’s flying monkey so far. Last year was bad enough when this family feud was new to us. This year, I’m not seeing anything that isn’t somehow set up for or by production.

      Enjoy the new bike 😀

    Yo still on a boat in Italy…I am guessing that she is telling us that boat is owned by the man who owns Victorias Secret…

    Pierce Brosnan’s daughter dies of ovarian cancer after he’s already lost his wife to the disease. His wife also lost her mom to the disease when she was a teen. Three generations. How very sad.

      Holy $hit
      How old was she? I have to read this. These daughters didnt get tested for the BRCA gene?? Omgod how incredibly sad

      • Nancy says:

        The million dollar question. It would have probably saved her life.

        • chismosa says:

          Nancy i’m very annoyed with this. I don’t know if they carried the gene or not, but to not be preventative when they see what happened to their mom? (and likely other female relatives?)
          Beyond words. Stupid stupid stupid. How sad

    • Powell says:

      Awww. That’s so sad. 1st his wife, now his daughter. His poor family. I always liked PB. He seems like such a nice guy that loves his family deeply. May she RIP. She can be w/her mom again.

      I feel bad for him. To lose a child no matter how old they are is so heartbreaking.

      who is on the cover of that…. yummmm
      i used to get this magazine in the mail. I’m SO MAD she’s not on so much this season Tartsy!

      Thanks for the updates!

      • chismosa says:

        hmmmmm if that’s the guy who was on Dancing with the Stars, –my brother looks like him! I forget his name. He knows Alexia from Miami- he was on S1 visiting her at her magazine’s offices. I can’t get a full shot of the cover on their website.

      • TexasTart says:

        You and me both…apparently she is getting a ton of tweets about people are not happy – but she is hinting bigger and better things ahead.

  44. TexasTart says:

    It’s a shame that Nene Leakes seems to be all about the money and material things IMO. She tweets about gifts from the wedding. Gift bags she gave out. Sponsors for her wedding…honestly I don’t know if they paid for.anything cuz all she does is thank @-name-of-business. And the endless slew of reminding us to watch in September. Buy so and so magazine, etc. I get the self promotion – Twitter is made for that but she doesn’t connect with people. I’m just saying the woman is ridiculously materialistic seeemingly without conscience. We’ll see how that works out for her.
