Real Housewives of Orange County

Remember Last Week – Since our fabulous housewives are banned from vacationing anywhere in the United States… And Mexico won’t have them back, either… They’re now trying to screw up Canada by visiting Whistler Ski Resort.  Poor, poor Canada – What did they ever do to us?  After agonizing over the decision, Tamra finally let Vicki know that she had been told that Vicki had a threesome in the past (Who cares?)… And that it was Lauri who informed Gretchen about it… and then Gretchen decided to tell the world about it.  Vicki blew a gasket and confronted Gretchen and then Lauri at the base of the mountain after they finished all skiing… This culminated in Vicki calling Lauri a “piece of trash” and then she unceremoniously disinvited Lauri to the group dinner that evening.  Not sure why Vicki thought she had the authority to do that, but okay… Surprisingly, Vicki’s ski pole wasn’t found thrust up Lauri’s dupa… Meanwhile Lydia, Alexis and Tamra had a little “threesome” of their own as they made snow angels in the snow just to escape the drama.

We rejoin our ski bunnies back in their rooms at the Four Seasons.  What the heck? Vicki is wearing detachable fur muffs on her wrists. This is really going to “infurryate” Gretchen!  Tamra visits Vicki and brings the mandatory bottle with her.  Tamra wonders, “What’s with the furry?”  Vicki says they’re faux fur but Tamra is worried that Vicki is, “Turning into one of THEM.”  Vicki reassures Tamra that they’re not a costume – That they can come off.  I’m not sure how that demonstrates that it’s not a costume, but okay…  They each have a bottle of wine in their hand… and it looks like they’re going to need it.  Vicki is still livid about Lauri who seems to have come back into the group just to stir up stuff.  Well, umm… yeah… that is the only reason she would have been allowed back onto the show. Vicky wonders why she allowed herself to lose her temper again.  In her talking head, Tamra tells us that she knows Vicki is not going to let this go.  Tamra says she knows that if she was in Vicki’s shoes that she would be pissed too… With a tough guy air Tamra says, “I’d slice the b***.”  Okay, I understand you’re just trying to be kewl and pretend that you have some street cred, Tamra… but isn’t the terminology, “Cut a b***” and not “Slice the b***?” This isn’t Thanksgiving – although arguably Lauri is a turkey – but that’s just being disrespectful to turkeys.  If you’re gonna use slang… at least use the correct slang people!

Ly and Al no dramaLydia and Alexis meet in a “No Drama Zone.” But seriously, what fun is that?  Alexis feels really bad for Vicki but is secretly doing backflips that for once the drama is not about her.  Lydia maintains that a group of Canadian women would not have a fight on a mountain about threesomes.  Oh really, have you watched, “Real Housewives of Vancouver?”  Cuz I personally think that Jody, Ronnie, Amanda or Ioulia could really, “Cut a b***” so to speak.  Maybe you guys disagree – but I would not want to be on their bad side… Just sayin’… Lydia says that she wants the group to focus on good things.  And right on cue, there’s a knock on the door… and in walks the Evil B*** herself, Lauri.

It seems that Lauri wants to know if she’s still invited to dinner since Vicki had disinvited her.  Lydia assures her that of course, she is welcome to come.  When talking about the conflict she had with Vicki, Lauri says described it as “Such a simple thing” and that Vicki just reacted to something that Gretchen had said (Cough, cough).  Lydia thinks they all can get past it.  Lauri says there are things that have happened in the past that she wants to talk to Vicki about.  Lydia predicts that it’s going to be a “bumpy” dinner.  Lauri once again, goes into the explanation of what caused her to turn on Vicki.  She recaps how her husband George’s ex mother-in-law sent an email to Vicki and that Vicki didn’t share it with her.  Instead, Vicki sent it to her friend and fellow housewife at the time, “Jeana” and asked her what she thought she should do.  Jeana then sent the email to others and it eventually got back to Lauri after it “went viral.” Lauri thinks if they can sit down for on a one-on-one discussion so they can get past it all.  Lauri, I hate to be the one to break this to you, but in Week 10 – when you were talking to Gretchen about this exact incident, you told her that Vicki had, “sent the email to several people.”  Now, you’re saying that it was Jeana who sent the email to several people.  I smell a lie…Lydia

Everyone arrives for dinner and asks Lydia where she wants them to specifically sit at the table.  For some reason this amuses me, because it just doesn’t seem to be in character for Lydia to make people sit in a certain place – she’s more of a “go with the flow” kinda girl, IPPHO.  If Lauri says the wrong thing, Tamra is worried that Vicki will shove a bottle of vodka up Lauri’s ass.  I’m not sure why all the housewife franchises are suddenly talking about “ass” stuff.  Stop it! Oh good, here comes the alcohol… surely it will be a calm, peaceful dinner.  Lol.  Whoa, filet mignon is their first course – Hey, mine is usually just an appetizer or a salad, what’s up with that?  Tamra is trying to help Vicki hook up with the chef.  Vicki wants no part of it – and tells Tamra she doesn’t need her help.  Vicki just wants love, happiness, amazing people around and… then Tamra completes Vicki’s thought by blurting out, “sex.” Tamra thinks Vicki is horny… I’m just trying to erase that idea from my mind.  Vicki then starts to talk a little about Brooks and how he is a good guy.  Even Alexis agrees with Vicki.  But Lauri, the Evil B*** that she is, says that Brooks is, “Too good to be true.”  Vicki tells Lauri, “I think as a classy lady, you should shut your mouth.” Lauri says Vicki’s just trying to intimidate her.  “Don’t tell me to shut up, Vicki.”  Vicki says that Lauri lied.  Lauri is offended by that comment.  Vicki doesn’t want to talk about the subject at this time.

V - No brooks talkAnd since Gretchen hasn’t been part of the conversation up to this point, she felt the need to poke her plastic Botoxed nose where it doesn’t belong by chiming in, “Well, you brought it up.” Vicki says that the fact of the matter is that Lauri is saying I had some indiscretions.  Lauri says she’s never judged Vicki for what happened in her marriage.  Vicki says, “Until today.”  Then Vicki and Laurie start talking about how Gretchen said that Vicki was full of hypocrisy… and Vicki says that the word is “ironic” not “hypocrisy.”  Omg… will someone PLEASE teach these people some basic fundamentals of grammar, please?  I totally make more than my share of mistakes, but come on… Lauri thinks many people would call it “hypocrisy.”  Then Gretchen decides that WE’RE the ones who need a vocabulary lesson.  In her talking head she tells us that, “I don’t think Vicki even understands the true definition between “ironic and hypocrisy” – It’s a ‘hypocrite’ when you accuse everybody else of doing all these horrible things yet you go and do the exact same things.” Okay, for some reason, this is just putting me over the edge… It’s irony/hypocrisy or ironic/hypocritical, puhleeze!  Gretchen can’t even get her grammar lesson of the day worded correctly and she omits including her definition of “Ironic” to complete her thought. Well, perhaps it’s because her one single thought prematurely died from boredom.

Sigh, they’re talking about the “threesome” again.  Vicki informs Lauri that she wants to creatively remove Lauri’s eyeballs out of her head.  Gretchen and Vicki then launch into the worn out discussion about how Vicki accused Gretchen of being a gold digger and that she cheated on her fiancé, Jeff.  Gretchen maintains Vicki did it from the very beginning but Vicki says no, that it was later on.  Bravo rolls the tape of one of my very favorite lines from RHOC – I think it’s Gretchen’s first day of filming, and she’s walking down the sidewalk towards a limo.  Tamra, Vicki and Jeana are already in the limo and outside of Gretchen’s earshot, Tamra says in a voice dripped with sarcasm, “Hold on to your Daddies girls, here comes Gretchen.”  Vicki conveniently says she doesn’t recall and that there was a lot of chirping going on.  Vicki said Jeanna told her that Gretchen was dating someone much older.

Mini rant:  While in this particular scenario, it was Gretchen’s new bestie, Tamra, who was the one who was actually talking trash about Gretchen (and I find this to be amusingly ironic, by the way…lol)… Vicki made more than her fair share of derogatory comments about Gretchen way before she ever knew her to any degree.  Most often, Vicki does not take responsibility for what she says.  Instead, it’s always someone else’s fault.  In this instance, Vicki blames Jeana for telling her that Gretchen was dating an older man.  My husband married me, an older woman by 7 years…does that mean he’s automatically a gold digger?  If so, he’s out of luck!  This little rant was born because I see that Vicki is vile and hypocritical in so many ways… and it irks me to no end to think that because of Vicki’s actions that I could potentially agree with Gretchen or Lauri about anything, dagnabit.  However, I will deny it in a court of law. Okay, now back to our regularly scheduled programming…

Vicki is wondering why we are going back and talking about things that happened years ago.  In her talking head, Gretchen says of Vicki, “Listen you crazy bitch, stop acting like you’re the one that’s “Little Miss Perfect” and stop trying to “personify” onto me…” Okay, who gave Gretchen a “Word of the Day” calendar?  Here’s the thing Gretchen, if you don’t know the actual meaning of a word you have no hope of using it correctly in a sentence.  Vicki said that it’s true that she had a lot to say about it just like Tamra.  Gretchen and Tamra assure Vicki that they have worked out their differences but Vicki seems doubtful of that fact.  Gretchen then tries to actually pretend to be able to put together a coherent sentence (but don’t worry boys and girls she doesn’t succeed), “I feel like it’s a little “ironic”… that at this time, when we’ve now divulged your indiscrepancies (indiscretions, damnit… please forgive the cussin’… but come on…)…And now you say, “Let’s just get over it.”  Vicki says it’s because she’s owned it… Gretchen keeps yammering on and Vicki slams the table and asks, “What do you want from me?”  Gretchen wants her to be calm and to not pound the table… lol… Vicki says she had a bad marriage that’s over and she’s divorced.  “Now what do you want?” she asks.  Vicki wonders if Gretchen wants her to say she’s sorry again – but then thinks otherwise and says, “You should be sorry, because you haven’t been an angel.”  Gretchen thinks it’s like talking to a crazy woman… Vicki wants to table this discussion.  Lauri wants to continue to talk because Vicki called her a liar.  Vicki decides to leave and basically says that they enjoyed their dinner and that she really has nothing more to say to Lauri.  Vicki says, “I am going to go… Have a nice life… I wish the best for you and George.”  She’s muttering, “8 years later you’re still not over it.”  Lauri thinks Vicki is deflecting… Everyone leaves…

V - OutGretchen and Tamra are the only ones left at the table, and once again, because Gretchen is acting like a 3rd grader, she said, “I don’t even know how you and Vicki are BFFs again.” Tamra tells her that she and Vicki have been friends for many years and that she’s trying to move forward.  Gretchen is hurt because she considers herself to be Tamra’s “true friend.”  Ugh, KMN (Kill me now).  Tamra tries to explain to Gretchen, The Scarecrow (Oh, if she only had a brain… dooo doot dododoododoo… Now you’re singing it too, aren’t you?  You’re welcome!) that Vicki’s problem with Gretchen is because she lied about being her availability for dress shopping.  They bring up the whole dress shopping thingie wherein Gretchen didn’t want Alexis to go and implied she wanted Tamra to disinvite her… Gretchen said that she just didn’t want it to end up like the CUT Fitness dinner fiasco. Gretchen tells Tamra that because she is, “The friend that I am” that she was somehow afraid she would call out Alexis on being fake on that day.  Tamra thinks Gretchen played her a little bit.  She reminds Gretchen that she said on Sunday that she turned down a role to go dress shopping.  Heather said there was no role and that it was a total lie on Gretchen’s part.  Gretchen clarifies that her role was to play herself on the sitcom and that, “Why in the world would I pick it out of my a***.”  (Can we puhleeze stop with the a*** comments?)… Tamra thinks Gretchen kept changing her story. First was, “I’m not going if Alexis is going.”  Then she couldn’t go because she got a role.  Tamra says it’s the same issues she’s had with Gretchen for years – So many lies… G and T hug The truth of the matter is that Gretchen probably had the potential for a small, one time only role on the show.  But really, is there anyone amongst us who would believe for a minute that Gretchen would turn down a role in a nationally televised sitcom just to go wedding dress shopping?  No, I didn’t think so… lol… Tamra explains that when you have a friend who exaggerates stories all the time, it’s hard to know what’s true.  Awww… Tamra and Gretchen hug it out…kumbayah.

The next day the women go snowmobiling.  Vicki’s plan is to move on mentally because, “You can’t fix stupid.”  Awkward silence fills the van during the 20 minute bus ride.  Lydia asks Lauri if she got good rest… Lauri confirmed that she did because she, “Took an Ambien and went to sleep.”  Good to know.  Lauri wants to schedule a sit down with Vicki if their relationship is salvageable to let Vicki know how much she hurt her… Good luck with that!

L and ALauri says she’s going to stay behind Vicki on the snowmobile.  Vicki says she’s going to stay behind Lauri.  Although it seems like people aren’t getting along (Vicki vs. Lauri, Vickie vs. Gretchen, Gretchen vs.  Alexis) Lydia is still hoping they can frolic in their snowmobiles and have an enchanted secret garden moment.  Alexis thinks that the good part about this is that snowmobiles are so loud that if anyone is having a fight that she won’t be able to hear it.  They put on some very unflattering outfits – and Vicki seems to be channeling a cross between Heidi (from the children’s book) and the girl on the Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa box.  Vicki says she’s a snow mobile “expert” and that she’s been doing it her whole life. Vicki’s ready to let off some steam and wants to go really fast.  And Tamra, just because she’s nasty says, “Just being on a seat and having an engine in between your legs…. How much fun is that, girls?” Although Vicki had previously asked for permission and was told, “no”, she separates from the group and goes off roading on her snow mobile.  This last all of 2.5 seconds because she misjudged the turn and almost crashed in to a creek.  Alexis said that Vicki was talking big but is the first one to fall off the snow mobile.  “Now that’s irony” says Alexis.  (Deep sigh… or perhaps, “ironic?”)

V is heidiTamra decides she has to pee – so does she go behind the trees?  NooOOOooo… She just “drops trou” in the open and asks someone to shield her.  It looks like perhaps Vicki also ummm… did her thing.  We’re once again reminded not to eat the yellow snow.  Gee thanks.  The women then get into a snowball fight.  This seems pretty cathartic for Vicki and Gretchen because as they throw snow at each other they are also throwing insults at each other but in a playful way. They end up wrestling a little and somehow Gretchen ends up on top of Vicki with her hands inexplicably on her boobies.  G and T breast friendsI guess they’re “breast friends” now?  Tamra is thankful they’re throwing snowballs instead of fists.  Lydia calls it, “Canadian magic” that they needed the great outdoors for everyone to start to get along.  Lauri tells Vicki she wants to just put this all behind them and suggests that they have lunch.  Vicki agrees to coffee or something and they agree not to scream at each other.  However, in Vicki’s talking head, she says she doesn’t care about what Lauri has to say anymore… And that Lauri’s filthy and disgusting.  Vicki says, “I have no desire to meet with her.”

Heather calls Tamra from her limo on her way back from her “Malibu Country” shooting.  Tamra says that Gretchen is pissed at what Heather said about Gretchen’s role or lack thereof and wants to talk to her about it.  They talk about what could have transpired.  They kind of agree that Gretchen probably exaggerated the size of her potential role.  Heather wonders, “When people lie about little things in life… What else are they lying about?”

V breaks glassOkay, it’s time for din din…. They eat at, “Bearfoot Bistro” which seems to be a kewl looking place.  However, they’re not eating at a secluded table – there are people sitting at other tables all around them and I’m wondering if that may be a decision the owner might soon regret.  The restaurant boasts of the “Coldest vodka tasting room in the world” at -26 degrees Celsius.  Vicki is wearing her backless shirt (In Canada, really?) and unfortunately adjusts things just as the waiter is over her shoulder.  Tamra laughs and insists that Vicki is a little horny. Vicki puts her wineglass back down on the table a little too hard and it breaks in her hand.  Tamra thinks Vicki’s taking out her sexual frustrations on a poor champagne glass and she wonders what she does to an actual penis.  Sigh.

Heather comes home from work… to a loud, wonderful, musical reception from her family.  She’s later than she thought because surprise, surprise – there was lots of traffic.  Heather is thinking that maybe she should leave more often to get this kind of reception.  Terry is handling this job so much better than he did the other one – he’s not making jokes at Heather’s expense. Heather likes feeling balanced which is when she can both take care of her family and also be creative.

Ice RoomBack at Whistler, a guy named, “Chris” is going to be their guide into the “Ice Room.”  Tamra stars screaming that it’s really cold in there.  After they put on the extra jackets provided by the restaurant, Gretchen says they look like a cute bag of marshmallows.  Well, we all knew her head was full of “marshmallow fluff” right?  Vicki playfully tells everyone to put their tongue on the ice.  She pretends to do it and so does Lydia.  Well, actually Lydia does it and says it kind of sticks.  Then, in this week’s segment of “I Kid You Not”, Tamra puts her tongue solidly on the ice and gets stuck.  I mean really stuck.  It’s like she’s never seen, “A Christmas Story, My Best Friend’s Wedding, or Dumb and Dumber.”  It’s hilarious… but ouchie!  They have to pour liquid over her tongue to get it to release.

Gretchen stupidly asks, “Is your tongue still on your mouth?” Gretchen tells us in her talking head what we already know that if Vicki tells you to do something… don’t do it.  Tamra’s tongue is bleeding… Gretchen tells her, “That wasn’t smart, honey.”  She’s such a wonderful, “true friend”, no?  Alexis says that she thinks it’s God’s way of telling Tamra to watch her tongue… “Frostbite… my tongue has frostbite,” says Tamra.  She was just trying to be a good friend and play along with the others.  Vicki can’t help but laugh at her.  No one can.

Tamra calls Terry and says she has a “medical emergency.”  Okay you guys… if you call a doctor and say, “medical emergency” – it had better be a medical emergency.  She explained that VIcki told her to put her tongue on the wall in the “Ice Room” and the skin came off.  Terry aptly asks, “Isn’t that like the scene from dumb and dumber?”  Tamra is concerned her tongue has frostbite.  Terry thinks the part that is frost bitten is probably still stuck to the wall.  Tamra thinks that if Heather was there it wouldn’t have happened but Heather knows she can’t stop, “The train that is Tamra Barney” – if Tamra wants to do something, Tamra does it… Terry tells Tamra to warm it up, put some pressure on it if it’s still bleeding… and then a little cool vodka wouldn’t hurt.  Heather and Terry talk about how the tongue is not an organ it’s a muscle… and that Tamra has left her DNA on the wall and she now cannot commit a crime in Canada because of it… Terry astutely says it’s not the first time Tamra left DNA on a wall. (Insert gratuitous joke here).  Heather laffs at THeather tells him that is disgusting… As he changes subjects, Terry tells Heather he’s genuinely happy that Heather’s working because she seems so happy about it, she’s glowing… and there’s a spark to her…

They do a fun tableside liquid nitrogen ice cream making scene… and Alexis thinks she’s has a little “Geeky Science kid” inside her because she’s totally excited about this demonstration.

As Tamra is feeling sorry for herself, she admits that she’s a slow learner.  All her life she’s had to learn the hard way.  T leans on LauriTamra leans on Lauri for comfort…  Vicki then starts spouting off life affirming platitudes like Brooks used to do when he was just trying to get into Vicki’s pants or something.  Vicki says, “Life is about having fun…  Why not laugh?  My glass is half full.”

And just as I was lulled into a false sense of security, they show previews for next week… Gretchen looks like she’s recording a song for Slade…. NoooOOOooOOOooooOOOOOo!!!!!!!!  I need to go find my earplugs… STAT! T Warms tongue

    Gopd morning everyone. It’s going to be around 103 today. It’s getting hotter… I hope you stay cool. Have a great day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Howdy, at work today with the beef jerky hanging on for dear life. I have my hair strategically placed ON MY FACE,…I must look like an orangutan from a distance. Who’s the hairy lady at Lainey’s desk? ha ha ha!!

  2. boston02127 says:

    To NMD and all the contributing bloggers. I don’t say this often enough. Thanks for all the work you guys do. You keep me informed and laughing. Thank you.

  3. Rebecca says:

    Wow Stars, I can’t believe you didn’t turn your brain off for half that show. Mine goes into self-preservation mode so quickly.

    On another note – the vocabulary award of the night goes to…. Alexis! Her proper use of the English language gives us the sentence – “it’s God’s way of telling Tamra to watch her tongue.” Her well thought-out diction resulted in a witty remark that proves there are working brain cells in her head. Well done! It’s a big achievement for the OC franchise!

    • Powell says:

      Well let’s hope the spark in her brain cells run off on Gretchen.

    • Stars99 says:

      Rebecca… my brain actually exploded last night. It’s been a horrible mess to clean up. And you’re right about Alexis… It made me laugh when I first heard her comment… then I was like, “Was that Alexis who just said that?”… and finally, I thought… “Omg… everyone else has gotten so stupid that Alexis looks like a rocket scientist compared to them… or at least like a future creative ice cream maker… lol.”

  4. Rebecca says:

    NO birthdays today? Well, your holiday of the day is National Corn Fritters Day.

  5. Vegas Chick says:

    Good morning! It’s hot here too Powell but a lot cooler than it has been. Between the fire and 115 degree temperatures, it’s been a horrible summer in LV.

    Thanks for the recap Stars. I only saw about 10 minutes of it and, actually, it was 10 minutes too many.

    Grethen’s complexion is awful. Maybe, she should try another line of products instead of layering gobs and gobs of Gretchen Christian on her face and let her skin breathe a little. Honestly, she starting to look more and more like Joan Rivers with each passing episode.

    • chismosa says:

      I second that about Gretch- I don’t watch the show (catch tail ends or on wwh) so I’m coming as someone not used to seeing her or her transformation over the years and MAN does she look like a younger Joan Rivers. Of course, with only .000000000000000001% the wit. Heehee!

      That Lauri– what a drag queen. Quite the handsome woman.

      Cool wishes (not warm) to you Vegas. Let’s do a rain dance. ☔☔☔

    • Powell says:

      115 Vegas Chick? Whewww. That’s hot hot hot. How is the containment of the fire now? I hope it will be over soon.

      Gretch made fun of Vicki’s plastic surgery and Gretch should have also been to see a dermatologist. She has what looks like moles but they are not dark like many moles.

      • Vegas Chick says:

        70% contained and folks who live at Kyle Canyon will be allowed back home on the 17th. It’s much better here in Vegas. I spent most of yesterday cleaning up the ash around my house and in the garage. What a mess. It’s cost over $15m so far. Thank goodness the Fed are chipping in 75% or everyone in Clark County would have had to get second or third jobs to pay for it… 🙂

      • Catseye says:

        I think what Gretchen has is sebaceous cysts on her face. Kyle has them also. You can go to a dermatologist and have them burned off with a hot needle and after the skin heals, it looks a heck of a lot better. Instead of just spending $$$ on hair extensions, Botox and plastic surgery, she needs to get rid of those ugly bumps. >_<

        • Powell says:

          That’s what it is Catseye? Kyle does have that. Hers doesn’t looklke Gretch though. Gretch really needs to look at having them removed.

    • Rebecca says:

      Our high in Phoenix today should be under 100 degrees. Here’s hoping for cooler weather to our friends in Vegas as well.

    • Stars99 says:

      You’re welcome, Vegas Chick – I can only imagine how much damage to your health the mere 10 minutes that you watched wreaked on your life… lol

    Everyone get your vomit bags ready:

    From people mag— the links never work but the headline was that Patti Strangler found love through JZ:

    So gross!!

    Finding your soul mate has never been easier, says matchmaker Patti Stanger.

    She should know.

    The star of Bravo’s hit reality series, Millionaire Matchmaker, said she met her soul mate, handsome former baseball player David Krause, when she finally figured out what was preventing her from finding love.

    “Two years ago, I was depressed because I hadn’t found the true love of my life,” Stanger, 52, told PEOPLE Saturday at the Ladies Luxury Luncheon that her close friend, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin, hosted in Southampton.

    “I was like, ‘What’s wrong with me?’ ” said Stanger. “I’m smart. I make money. I’m pretty. What’s going on?’ I told Jill, who said, ‘Something is running in your unconscious that is preventing you from finding love.’ ”

    She found the answer when she discovered positive, subliminal messages that helped her overcome subconscious, negative thoughts she carried that stopped her from finding the right guy for her, she said. “Forty eight hours later, David walked into my life.”

    To help others find love, she has partnered with Dr. Joe Vitale, the law of attraction expert who was featured in the 2006 movie The Secret and famed hypnotist Dr. Steve G. Jones, (who appeared on Bravo’s Below the Deck series on July 8 and on her show) to create dating site

    “The unconscious is the bus driver and if it has no map, it has no direction and that’s why you can’t figure things out,” she said at the event, which benefited the Eric Trump Foundation, which will donate all proceeds to the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. “My goal is to find everyone love.”

    Stanger said she is about to start shooting the next season of Matchmaker, which is “all changes. You’re going to be shocked in the first episode at all the changes coming up. Shocked.”

    What hasn’t changed is her ever-deepening relationship with Krause. They are not engaged yet – she was sporting the diamond-encrusted David Yurman promise ring that Krause gave her – but she said, “we are living together. Things are great. I’m really happy.”

    • AZGirl says:

      Finally at 52 she has found love through JZ. Well hells bells.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      i’m skeptical. It’s too neat. It’s too coincidental with her new business venture. Which came first the chicken or the egg? The idea for the new business (attracting a soul mate website?) or the ever deepening relationship with Krause? I do not believe this “relationship”…they are creepy together.

      Doesn’t she advise people on her stupid matchmaker show NOT to co-habitate? This is yet another of example of her ongoing BS. Do as I say, not as I preach/bully/dictate. Her unnecessary vulgarity takes away from anything positive she says or does (in my book).

      Let me think of something to positive to say:….Her figure does look nice and she does a lot with what God gave her in the looks department.

      • AZGirl says:

        ITA. Patty has done a lot with what god gave her but she still has a mouth. The stuff that comes out of her mouth is ridiculous. Remember our JNNTJ went to the party and Patty was there and was total bit#h. If you are 52 and still have not been able to have a successful long term relationship (5 years or more) there is something wrong with you. Most likely you lack the willingness to compromise on many levels.

        • chismosa says:

          Very well-put. She’s definitely got issues. Redheads …. The first assistant who left working for her then explained how horrible she was ….

      • chismosa says:

        Totally agree with all of you. Her guy’s voice is like Kermit the frog
        I think JZ must be absolutely besides herself that her name is on the main People page lol!

        WHY does she always go on WWH!?!? This time she’ll be promoting this. For sure

        • Laineylainey says:

          Oh I know…that voice. If a prospective bachelor with that voice came on her dumb matchmaker show, she would TOTALLY be all mean about it. Now yall know i dont normally talk like this..I’m impersonating what she would say to a Kermit voiced man on her show. Patty:.”You don’t sound like a man. Does this mean you have no penis? Or balls? Or hair on your balls?” You know I’m right. NMD, bb, or MTH, please delete this if I went too far.

      • T-Rex says:

        Lainey sounds like a complete fake setup, just like her “supposed” last relationship, she was in “true love with her soul mate”, I believe these were the words she used referring to him during her “fake” wedding planning preparations. Uhm, yeah you want to make more money off a new venture, folks are pointing out during your yucky show that you can’t make a go of a relationship, where do you get off showing others “how it’s done”. Oh and let’s look at that track record, we have like one “relationship” out of how many seasons? She is still the StinkyStankerStangerFakeRelationshipexperttoNOStars! Ugh how much is she paying Mz. Andy to stay on bravo.

        • Laineylainey says:

          If she’s not paying Andy…what on earth does he see in her??? I mean as a marketable television personality.

      • Powell says:

        See Miss Lainey I had the same thought. Is this just to promote her new biz venture?

      • Powell says:

        Lainey when her show was back this past season & I saw how she looks I did give her props. That Sensa or whatever she did has her looking good. That’s the only thing I can give her props for.

        • Laineylainey says:

          Sensa,plus exercise,plus lipo, plus Botox, plus juvederm,…not hating just sayin’…wish I could afford all dat.

          • chismosa says:

            I’m glad you pointed that out– it’s not JUST weight loss. Her face clearly has stuff that makes it look different.

    • Powell says:

      So now JZ will write “How to find love. The jewish Mothers Guide””. So Andy that she was with for yrs wasn’t her soulmate? She said he was. Krause. Get a prenup if you marry her.

      • Kokuanani says:

        Think about this: two of Andy’s favorite people — JZ and Vicki. What does that say about him [and his taste]?

        I couldn’t even watch the PROMOS for WWHL last night, featuring Vicki and Joe [someone = baseball announcer].

        Why, why, why does Andy have trash like Vicki – and Tamara — on WWHL?

    • Buttercream says:

      “Eric Trump Foundation” ?? What is she doing but brown nose a promo for a Trump? She should not be on TV with the way she speaks to people with her crass mouth. A lady she is not!
      Great re-cap Stars!
      That Gretchen sure can mix up her words … do you think she gets nervous speaking in front of the camera’s? Shes constantly playing and fidgeting with her hair …

      • Stars99 says:

        Thanks, Buttercream! I don’t know if it’s nerves for Gretchen or not… perhaps? But she screws up even during her talking head interviews when the pressure isn’t quite as intense… Now arguably, I misspeak all of the time… so I’m the biggest hypocrite in the world for pointing out others’ foibles… But it’s my job… lol… and our job to snark at those who think they’re better than everyone else who splay their lives on national TV, no?

    • BB says:

      A promise ring? What are these two – in high school?

      • LavaLady says:

        ikr omg is that baby Jack? So cute!

      • T-Rex says:

        I think StinkyStankySkankyStanger bought herself the ring so she didn’t look hypocrisy’d ironic for shacking up with a dude before they had a committed relationship.

    • T-Rex says:

      Interesting as I am always sleuthing around for information(yeah I read Nancy Drew growing up), Hmmmm Seems the StinkySkankyStankyStanger has also said that Jenny McCarthy and Ricki Lake were the ones that helped her find this new supposed “love” See below:
      Oh and on a side not RadarLiaLiarPantsOnFireLine(allegedly) had a whole host of incorrect information on the subject, wow who would have thought

      • cusi77 says:

        T-Rex_ Is this the same guy NOW Stinky skanky is saying she met thanks to JZ? I am very curious… I need a life!!! NoooooOooooOOOoooo! I am moving next week and lots of things to do, but I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeed Gawwwwssssip!!!!! I used to watch Project Runway on Bravo and I saw some pieces of MM and I disliked the way that woman talked to everyone a so crude to talk about sex… Same with OC, I never watched because of Vicki’s attitude. Now I need to know… Which is it? She met him online or JZ introduced them?

        • T-Rex says:

          Cusi Yeppers it is the VERY same guy! She met the guy online!

          • cusi77 says:

            Thank you T-Rex! I went to wonder around that site she is promoting and these 48 hours change your mind to a positive thinking by mail is difficult to believe. They just want to make easy money.

        • cusi77 says:

          Never mind! This has SCAM all over written! They are using each other to sell the videos, and the up coming Stinky’s program. I hope her relationship is true… The rest is NOT.

    • Powell says:

      I’m just reading the rest of this. Help me out everyone. I’m totally confused then because NOW Patti is working w/these 2guys with the goal of helping people find true love. Did I get that right? So NOW this is her goal. So what the H E double hockey sticks has she been charging those “Millionaires” for all these yrs? Isn’t that what she has been saying on Bravo? Isn’t she a 3rd generation matchmaker? She hasn’t boasted about how many of her matches has resulted in marriages and kids so I don’t know if there are any. So should those “Millionaires” be asking for refunds? 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        Bingo BLAMO – Powell you are absolutely right. It’s like she’s saying her old job was not for the same exact thing. Haha

        • T-Rex says:

          Exactly, her last job was hooking up rich old guys with wannabe golddiggas, or as I saw it, more of a high-end escort(allegedly) service. We saw like one match, maybe, if that was even true or still going on. I don’t think any of her matches actually ended with an actual marriage.

  7. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone. Thank you Stars for the great recap. I was able to watch part of the OC but we got hit with a major monsoon. Once it passed it was clean up time. The entire neighborhood was out cleaning tree branches and leaves from their yards. Pools a mess.
    High only 99 today. Full blown monsoon season this summer.
    @Powell: stay cool.

    • Stars99 says:

      Stay safe, Arizona… Hope you get the water you need without unnecessary flooding… As my dad would say, “Keep your powder dry.”

  8. AZGirl says:

    Just read Teresa’s blog. I am sure she does not write it but it does reflect her feelings so I am cool with it.

    It is so obvious just how low Mel and Joey will go for this crapfest of a show. We know for a fact that Kim D. was the one who set up Mel. Kim D admitted it. We also know that Teresa got up from the table when Jen started talking about Mel cheating on Joey. So WTF? Why are those two still trying to take down Teresa?
    Jac should apologize to Teresa for lying to Joey about who set up Mel. If Jac did not know that night she knows now and should apologize.
    Of course it is about staying on this show. All of them are boring as hell. Without Teresa and those kids of hers the rest would be out of work.
    Teresa, hear me. GET YOUR OWN SHOW. If you have to leave Bravo so be it. Shed these losers.

    • chismosa says:

      That’s what I’ve been saying. She needs her own show and just be gone — all the rest can retire down the Jersey shore.

    • cusi77 says:

      ITA! Very well put AZgirl!

    • Powell says:

      I think Jac is just jealous of all Tre’s success. Out of all the black crap, the caca face crap, the iTunes crap Tre has had the most success & it continues to grow. I think that is
      Mel’s problem w/Tre too.

    • Rebecca says:

      They’re trying to get her to quit. They will do anything and everything to drive her off. They’re disgusting!

      • AZGirl says:

        ITA. All I can say is that will be their biggest downfall. Bravo knows who brings the ratings. Certainly NOT Richie and Kathy Cannoli

    • melthehound says:

      Teresa already has her own show. It’s clear that without her, none of the rest would really have anything to talk about.

    • lizzle says:

      She has an airtight contract with Bravo, so she can’t go to another network. Her friend Heather is on twitter and gives the lowdown on the things Teresa doesn’t talk about. Heather said to never sign a contract with a network and that those contracts are evil. IMO, Teresa would leave if she could. I don’t even think she wants to be on the show anymore. But I think that being a public persona is now her job and it helps support the family. Vicki once said that she has a contract and that she would leave when they stopped wanting her back. I don’t fully understand, because every season you have them negotiating for money. But I doubt any housewife can leave and go to another network.

  9. BB says:

    Another hilarious recap, Stars. Bravo! (And I don’t mean the TV network).

    • Stars99 says:

      lol BB… Thanks… and “Bravo” to you for your birthday! It sounded like it was a nice day for you… so, so glad!

  10. Powell says:

    Can Tamra not curse or refer to a body part to kiss or stick something every epi?

  11. Powell says:

    So Stars. Mr. Stars hasn’t cashed in & gotten a Rolex or Lamborghini? 🙂

    And yes. Gretch is using her “Word for the Day” app that she bought from the Apple Store. 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      Dies laffin’ at Powelly-Pooh… I love the “Word for the Day” app concept… how completely hysterical… and no, Mr. Stars only got a Seiko, a Honda and an X-box. Does that count? Actually, the Honda was given to him by one of my close friends… now who does that? Who gives someone a fully functional, wonderful Honda Accord with very low mileage? My friend Joan, of course… Can you believe it? I think my friends love Mr. Stars way more than they even love me…lol… Perhaps I should be jealous! lol… My friend Ann actually tells me so, she says, “Stars, now you know that I love you… but I REALLY love Mr. Stars.” lolol… I LOVE IT!

      • Powell says:

        Haha. Mr. Stars has hit the jackpot. Your friend gave him a free car. He’s gold digger. 🙂

  12. VV says:

    They depend on viewers to make a living. Does anybody think Albie took a cheap shot not only at this person but at RHONJ viewers.

    I Xd the handle of this person involved in the exchange ( She was nasty to Lynn and I thin anti- Tre) This person had Retweeted an article about Al’s dad. Lauren got offended all 3 kids got involved. However, Albie’s comment is telling on how he views RHONJ audience.

    @AlbieManzo: @XXXXX @Laurenmanzo A RT w little thought? Thats funny. Lauren, your life is this woman’s hobby, I think that says enough.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      If I remember correctly MomsThoughts made some very ugly remarks about Lynn (after she passed on Rumor Fix It) that she later deleted. I think she is also in bed with one of the Marco sisters.

      What was the article. the old one about how Tiny Manzo was killed by the mob because they suspected he was skimming?

      • VV says:

        That lady can be ugly. I remember reading a post at Lynn’s or Twitter. Nasty, nasty.
        The article was very short and it referred to Al’s dad. Apparently, this topic touches a nerve with the Jr Manzo.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I found the article she retweeted, it really wasn’t that bad only only referred to “Tiny” briefly saying that he was murdered execution style ;and that the insurance company wouldn’t make the life insurance payout because Tiny lied about his weight.

          I wonder if the comment about his weight was what triggered Lauren to be upset. I have a feeling she was SMASHED drunk that night because in some of her other posts her and Greg were tweeting about a drunken blow out fight they got into.

  13. cusi77 says:

    Stars99 Thank for blogging, I laugh from beginning to End!!!! Thanks a lot!

    I am learning grammar on top of having FUN!

    • Stars99 says:

      Cusi77 – Your laughter is music to my ears! But I caution you NOT to try to learn grammar from these women… it exploded my head last night! I got confused myself… lol!

  14. Kokuanani says:

    Jeeze, I really can’t STAND Vicki!!! She thinks screaming will “make” her point. Gretchen’s right [and I don’t love Gretchen]: Vicki won’t take responsibility for ANYTHING. She also changes the subject or reverts to some cliche [“liar”] rather than respond to someone’s comment/argument.

    In addition, she’s got this whole “I’m such a renegade; I break the rules.” See her stupid stunts re the snow mobiles.

    I just hate her, and I hate that Andy loves her and features her so much. Make her go away.

  16. Lulu says:

    Hello everyone!!! Ugh another torcherous day!!! The governor refuses to leave the playground peacefully. This momma is tired of dragging him to the car kicking and screaming. Then the dreaded car seat!!! wrestling a 38pounder who is hell bent on NOT sitting in it is not fun!! I never learn I swear! Our alternative is to never leave the house so I guess I should grin and bear it! 😦

    This and the past episode I’m not hating Tamra as much. She is actually on her “best” behavior. Though I have no interest in her “wedding” or her life for that matter. Why should Vicki “own” up to her behavior? Gwretchen is so hell bent on her “owning up?” If Vicki wanted to be friends or play nice with Gwretchen they would have hashed is out years ago. It’s pretty clear to all but “Gwretchen” that Vicki does not like her and never will. Why should she own up?

    Starsey!!! Another spectacular blog!!! Love your take and snark!

    • Mrs Peabody says:

      yea I agree why should she own up to something Gretchen sees one way and Vicki sees as another. who says Gretchen is right and Vicky is wrong. also why does she keep blaming Vicky for everything that was said and not include tamara esp when tamara started most of the comments. And what’s with bringing up what they said in the limo when they first met her, she wasn’t in the limo and didn’t hear them. I thought they were only suppose to comment on what they heard or saw themselves. in real life she would not have seen or heard what they were saying about her, she only did because she watched the show like the rest of us.

    • Stars99 says:

      Hugs the Lulu… It’s got to be tough having a wrestling match every time you get into the car. Hopefully, it will get better soon… thanks so much for your kind words! = )

    • AZGirl says:

      Lulu my First Born was like that. Arrrg. I could not take him anywhere. My boys are 13 months apart. I remember taking them (1 and 2 years of age) to a brand new supermarket. I was so excited. This supermarket had everything so it was one stop shopping (No it was not Walmart or Target).
      In that one shopping trip, First Born hosed a woman with the produce hose in the produce section, pulled the whole bean coffee dispenser and unleashed several pounds of bean onto the aisle and finally when I was checking out he wanted a pack of gum and I said no. He threw a major fit and as I was paying he suddenly settled down.

      Well, when I got home he went straight to his room. Suspicious I smelled grape gum. He was under the bed chewing the gum which he stole from the store.
      I marched him back to the store and return the gum and told the manager to let him know what he had done was wrong. The manager was laughing because he did not care after all of the damage First Born had done he just wanted him out of the store

      • Laineylainey says:

        It’s nice of you to share this with Lulu. How encouraging, because your boys have grown up to be great young men. And so will the guvnah!!! Have you shared this story with your son!!! It is truly hilarious! (Now)

        • AZGirl says:

          Thank you..First Born cleaned 2 bathrooms and the kitchen this past Sunday knowing I was going to spend the day cleaning. He did the cleaning and was off to play golf.

          • Mene Seela says:

            Show off! LOL. My 2nd born has just NOW figured out that when he visits home, the way to momma’s heart is through the chore list.

      • lulu says:

        Lol ;). Az I can only imagine how you felt!!!! Good to know this is just a bump in the road :).

        • AZGirl says:

          Trust me…god makes children act like animals to prepare you for when middle school and high school come around. Thank god you have boys. Middle school girls make Vicki’s screaming seem like a “whisper”

      • Rebecca says:

        When I was a nanny and had to shop, I headed straight for the muffin counter. I got 10 minutes of undivided peace to grab the groceries.

    • Mene Seela says:

      Lulu & AZ you are cracking me up with the lovely memories of terrible toddlers. Mine were fine through the twos then three years old all hell broke loose. I still remember stepping over my daughter who was laying on the supermarket floor having a nuclear tantrum. I actually *pretended* not to know that child. That’s how loud her howling screams were. Child abuse? No! Mommy Abuse!

    • Powell says:

      Ok. I think The Governor is taking his title literally. 🙂

    • princesspindy says:

      Lulu, have to give my 2 cents worth…with my son I learned that “transitioning activities” was hard for him…so I would give him count downs, “we are going to be in leaving in 15 minutes”, then 10 mins, then 5 mins…(he couldn’t tell time when he was real young so I could wing the time part in the early years) and then I would say, “ok, now it’s time to go (or whatever it was we were going to do..) It really helped him prepare himself. Yes, there are times when they need to immediately obey, in safety situations, but in this helped me get his butt out of the park, so I thought I would share! 🙂 Another technique is to to “trial runs” where you don’t “need” anything at the store, you tell him what behavior you expect and if he doesn’t behave “we are leaving” and then (you hope) if he acts out, you immediately leave…..that way he knows you mean it… only put non perishable items in your! You will survive, honest!!

  17. Shiny says:

    Stars – thanks for saving me from an hour of TV and for entertaining me with your version of the show – so much funnier and “ironic” than the show could ever be. You are so committed and hilarious.

    • Stars99 says:

      Shiny – I’d do almost anything to spare someone from watching an hour from hell… but actually, this season has been mildly entertaining to me… I wouldn’t say it’s “Must See TV”… but past the first couple of episodes it hasn’t consistently turned my stomach like NJ does… lol… Although, that’s setting the bar quite low, no? lolol…

      • Laineylainey says:

        I was at work and tried to sneek a read, but I only got to the part where you said, “if you’re going to use slang…” So funny. Cut a b!t€h vs. slice a B/7ch. Slice sounds so polite, doesn’t it? Stop right there, give me your arm, someone give me a fork please…please hold still while I take a little slice. Thank yew!!!

    Stars, my hubby is 9 years older than me, now I’m not saying I’m a gold digger, he gives me money, when I’m in need….go head girl, get down, get down….anyhoo, funny, funny blog!!! I am thinking that Lydia might get thru the season unscathed…. Now Alexis I give points for getting the “concept” (just like Joe!) of “irony”, have to take off points for using it as a noun instead of an adjective…..but she was so pleased with herself that I had to smile!! Tamra is an idiot, plain and simple and so vulgar. Vicki is a piece of work. Laurie is so disgusting. And Gretchen is just lost in her own world. Oh and I hear that Tamara is “done” with Gretchen, so now she is alone (with Slade) in her own world.
    But I did enjoy last night’s episode, but not as much as I enjoyed your recap Stars!!

    • Stars99 says:

      Tiara… You always say the kindest things my friend… I know, Alexis almost had it right… but then, “Missed it by much.” (Obscure “Get Smart” reference)… Your husband is the one who got the treasure, my friend… = )

    Sister wives is back anyone watching?

    • BB says:

      Not this time around unless its reruns. I would be curious to see if they’ve ever moved into their brand new houses on the cul de sac or if that fell through. Anyone know? I believe there’s a blog out there dedication to this show/family.

      • vilzvet says:

        I believe it’s FOUR houses, BB! Believe it or not.

        • BB says:

          Yes, I remember that from last season – one for each wife. Mary wanted the castle and it was only her and her daughter (who was planning on going away for college).

      • lulu says:

        The houses are being built and they are already paying their mortgage. Money is still an issue according to janelle. Mary is going to try invitro. Their only source of income aside from the show (which was renewed last second) is real estate and their jewelry line.

        • Catseye says:

          That is absolutely crazy for Mary to be trying to have another baby at her age, especially when those people have all filed for bankruptcies and have lived off the govt’s dime in the past. I guess it’s all to keep the viewer’s watching, though.

          • BB says:

            Anyone who had to think about it as long as she did really shouldn’t do it.

            • Powell says:

              And she was boo hooing that she wasn’t sure. She didn’t say she wanted a baby until Robin got pregnant.

        • lillybee says:

          Their jewelry line is pretty ugly and way over priced.

    • Powell says:

      I’ve never been a regular watcher but I’ll check it out every now and then.

  24. cusi77 says:

    Someone watching Interior Therapy?

    This client’s wife is so weird and delusional… She has 7 cats, she saved from putting down.. K?
    Up until there, how commendable, now she has three kids, the house is being taken over the entire house and the little baby is allergic to the cats. So the baby needs to use nebulizer (Medicines to help him breath) and the mother thinks it is OK , but not get rid of the cats. The health of your son or finding home for the 7 cats… She does not recognize that she needs to put her priorities on check. Wow!

  25. cusi77 says:

    Solution: Put the wife away with her cats!

    • Nancy says:

      I think George would use that solution himself Cusi. lol

    • Catseye says:

      I don’t get why those crazy people didn’t just have an enclosed patio in the back for all of those cats to begin with and for goodness sake use baking soda in the cat box to control the smell. I have a cat and keep her box in my teeny, tiny bathroom. No one notices because I always sprinkle a cup of baking soda over the litter (and I only change it once a week).

  26. Rebecca says:

    Holy crap – they’re showing the next episode of RHONJ on Bravo right now.

    • Rebecca says:

      Ah filler until Interior Therapy started. They played the whole fight scene. Apparently, Joey Marco is not at ALL to blame for the fight, according the New Jersey devils. Charging someone doesn’t count if you lose the fight, I guess. Melissa wears so much eye liner, the kohl got all over everyone. You can see her scratch Juicy’s face.

      Animals – all of them. This is where “unleash the furry” kind of makes sense.

  27. Mene Seela says:

    Uhm “First Look” RHNJ fight is on. Wow. Joey Gorga and his wife are really unbelievable.

    I wonder if the black tar is Joey’s hair dye?

    I will never watch that show!

    • Nancy says:

      I saw it too. Did you notice how fast Melissa put Joey’s hat back on?
      I bet all the black stuff was his paint on hair. Too funny.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        OMG- I was dying. Someone on AllaboutTRH mentioned (before I even saw the episode) that it was “Hair In A Can”…so when I watched it for myself and kept on hearing Juicy say
        “What da fuk is all dat black sh!t” I was DYING with laughter.

        • princesspindy says:

          That is soooo funny because recent pictures, he is looking really bald!! Hair in a Can!! HARDEE HAR HAR!!!

          • chismosa says:

            He recently shaved off all ALL hair. Sporting the new bald look that so many men are these days. So many men lose their hair I feel these last few years

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              He’s better off to shave his head. My brother has a receding hair line (courtesy of our dad) and it looks MUCH better shaved.

              • Kansas Girl says:

                Actually, the bald trait comes from the mother’s father. They will bald in almost exactly the same way.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I think my mom’s dad was bald too..but he died when I was really, really young. But I don’t remember him having a full head of hair.

                  • chismosa says:

                    I have the same thing except my brother is balding at the crown. My mother’s father was apparently bald early.

            • princesspindy says:

              Yes, and you can see his hair line has moved location to about the middle of the top of his head, lol!

        • Nancy says:

          LOL!!!!! Some of them thought it was tar! Let’s see how Mellisa spins this! lol

          • Nancy says:


          • plainviewsue says:

            It’s Teresa’s fault that he lost his hair. It’s Teresa’s fault that the black polish came off. It’s Teresa’s fault that she didn’t step in and stop the fight. It’s Teresa’s fault that Joey chewed on Juicy’s balls. It’s Teresa’s fault that Melissa tried to scratch Juicy’s eyes out.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              It is Teresa’s fault…and her parents. In his mind, they must love her more..they gave her all the hair DNA

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Girls, I swear I am still laughing…all this time Joey has been sitting on a gold mine.
          Teresa can have her Milania Hair line (for those of us who actually have it) and Joey can have his “Hair Today…gone Tomorrow”.

    • AZGirl says:

      Didn’t the security guard shown at the end have it on the back of head?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      This is one of the funniest things that has happened on any Real Housewives shows! I`m cracking up thinking of how his hair spray (literally) got spread all over the place because his Steroid crazy behind had to go all Mini Troll on Juicy

  28. Orson says:

    Yes, I saw Interior Therapy. I wanted to slap the mother who prefers having seven cats over her son’s health and welfare. And I don’t see the situation being resolved all that much by getting her to give up three cats and remodeling the garage into a family room with an attached cat habitat. Not if they’re going to let the little boy in that room. Hubby has to grow a pair and explain “Look, it’s the cats or our son. We can’t have both.” And the entire house needs to be seriously decatted. No dander, hair, ANYTHING.

    • chismosa says:

      There’s a VERY deep issue there. The alcoholism of the father / this way the mother has now—- they need therapy STAT

      Quite disturbing!

      I completely agree with you, Orson. If the husband does not grow a pair , I hope authorities take some kind of action to help the poor kid, whom is in real danger.

      • chismosa says:

        I think he’s afraid to grow a pair because of what he may have put her through for almost 20 years. So his guilt affects how he’s being trampled on.
        They realllllllllllllly need therapy

        Jenni was not pregnant at this taping – she was drinking- so I think it was pre-wedding or right after wedding – and Andrew is still there. So they film this in conjunction with Flipping Out I guess

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I wondered if Jenny was pregnant when she was cleaning those nasty litter boxes. That’s a big no no.

          • chismosa says:

            Really? Why? Is there a chemical cats release? I’m so interested…. Will have to google that sometime.
            Can pregnant women not be around cats?

            • Catseye says:

              There is sometimes a bacteria that is in their feces that is VERY dangerous to a fetus. I think it’s usually when the cat is allowed outdoors and able to eat mice, birds, etc. I think the cat can usually be tested at the vet to find out if it has something like that in it’s intestinal tract. I remember Jane Pauley saying she had her cats tested when she was expecting her twins, many years ago.

    • VV says:

      It’s Teresa’s fault that this lady had seven cats and her little boy is allergic to them.

    Good morning everyone. It’s hump day. I survived. Have you? 🙂 It’s going to be another hot one. I loveee it. Some areas in ny county will be w/o water for 2-5 days to replace a huge water pipe. I feel for those people. Hotels, restaurants, summer programs have to close. Hopefully they will get it done faster than they think.

    I hope you have a great day.

    • Jules says:

      Powell are you in the DC area? My sister lives there. Was worried about not water for days but they are at the condo in Rohoboth beach so are safe with water.

        Yes I love the hot weather as long as its not humid. I can’t stand cold weather.

    • AZGirl says:

      Morning Powell! Hope you stay cool. We got more rain last night. Just a nice steady rain. Pepper ran around in it for about 30 minutes. She loved it. Cool nights (80 degrees) are such a relief here.

      Morning Powell! Hope its not too hot in your neck of the woods.

    Good Morning!!!!!!!!! The governor is on his best behavior he keeps asking me to go “bye bye.”. I keep reminding him of what he did yesterday. He doesn’t recall what happened I swear the typical politician! To date tried: five more minutes, setting a timer on my cell phone, telling him a 3-4 more times down the slide then we go bye bye. Nothing works he’s stubborn and has selective hearing. Hopefully qualities he will grow out of!! While my Aiden is such a good baby 😉

      A politician at his age. Maybe he will make the Lulu’s the new “Kennedy’s”. 🙂

  31. realhousewifeva says:

    Not sure if anyone has followed Talia Joy`s journey on Instagram/Twitter/Facebook/youtube. She was an absolutely adorable 13 year old who battled cancer for 6 years and was an aspiring Make up artist. She didn`t like to wear wigs, so she said makeup is what made her feel `pretty`. She was full of so much life and appeared on Ellen`s show earlier this year. When Ellen asked her how she stays so positive she said a little fishy once told her to ~Just keep swimming~. She lost her battle with cancer yesterday and it has made me so sad (along with her millions of followers). She always was so upbeat and outgoing and made sure to not let the disease take away her enjoyment of life. What a beautiful soul that heaven has gained. You can see more about her on instagram (taliajoy18) or facebook (angels for talia). Sorry if it was mentioned already here.

    • chismosa says:

      That was very sad. I did not know her story and so didnt get why this very young girl was wearing OC Housewives amounts of makeup on but I see it was her “thing”. So sad. Was it leukemia? Poor thing, I saw the mother and older sister on TV.

      You know Ellen is so kind with kids and her obsessions over some that she finds — musicians mostly — it’s so sad she doesn’t want kids of her own and they say she hates having any kids at her house.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        It was Neuroblastoma and Leukemia. I think her mom knew her life would be cut short so she allowed her to pursue her passion of everything beauty (makeup, nails, etc) to the fullest. It gave her something to be excited about. She was actually very talented for her age.

        • chismosa says:

          Thanks RHV— so so sad.she was good at her makeup you are right !
          Why oh why do kids get leukemia !?!?! I must research

          Thanks —-

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Oh no, My heart goes out to her family and friends. She will certainly be missed and left a legacy to be proud of. She touched so many lives,

    Happy Humping to all youse 💏💏

    What a nj first look—- riDONKulous.
    Look at runaway Sally— what an atrocious devil– let them duke it out over you— don’t stop anything that’s right just run. Just like the THs always say about you — blam. You’re used to seeing your husband get cra cra and your brother is like you – so he’ll flip a table or a taunting gorilla.

    Where the F are you going!?? Maybe she was running to get Heather Maclean to tell her what to do.
    Call the cops –mmmmkay. There were only like 10 other people in the room that could have done that. Stay and face your problems drama queen ! Must bow down and genuflect. Must.
    The queen runs….throw the grenade and RUN. “I’m DONE!” Lather rinse repeat.

    Lovvvvvvvved seeing JoGo get Gorilla in the nose. What a jerk. So awesome

    I suppose dr Vagina is coming to them back in jersey? Or she will appear like an angel descending at just the precise moment everyone was to leave Lake G?

    Hyssssssterical. Short preview though and not on typical day.

    Have a good day all —not sure if new blog so just laid it out here 😁😁
    Stay cool!

    • lori says:

      I understand where you’re coming from but I personally think Teresa running to get security was the better choice. Women trying to break up men fighting most of the time isn’t going to work. They were already getting physical. I don’t see how Melissa screaming and scratching Joe Guidice was helpful..but that’s just my opinion.

      • ramonacoaster says:

        Tre came back with the two burly guys wearing navy blue jackets that looked like security. Did anyone see when she did come back she put her arm in between them to push her brother off and they broke apart? Maybe it was coincidence.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I agree with you lori, I would have done the same thing Tre did, go get help. I have a feeling we saw the real Melissa in that clip. It looked like to me when she was pouting at the window she could see Joe G coming back in and she didn’t say a word, Richie is the only one who said anything. That was interesting to me. Also Melissa was right in there getting her swings in just like she was at the christening, they had a clip of her at it kicking someone. I think she likes these fights just as much as her husband. Could she get that hat back on his head any faster, what was the deal about that. That is the last thing I would have thought of doing at that moment. Also whose shoe was laying on the ground, why didn’t she find the owner of that too? Why is she blaming Teresa for not stopping the fight, just how did she think she was going to do that? I guess she blamed her because she probably blamed her for starting it too. This is my thought—I always thought Melissa had a lot to do with the discord in that family but I don’t think that any more, what I think is that joeym hates Joe G because he has a closer relationship with joeym’s father (and he said in his th that Joe G came between him and his father and he has 10 years of hate toward him), HIs father probably thinks that he is a whiney little baby and that Joe G is more of a man that his own son and that is why he favors him. Melissa is very well aware of these feelings on her husband’s part and uses them to her advantage. I don’t think if joeym had a good relationship with his family that she would have been able to cause all the problems they have. I think she has egged him on and with his feelings he has bought into it. I think they are both equally to blame. I think joeym responds the only way he knows how, he takes his anger out toward his father and Joe G by going after his sister. He probably learned not to mess with the men and goes after the woman instead as the men could beat him senseless and probably don’t respond emotionally like Teresa does. In my book he is a whiney little bitch.

        • Nancy says:

          Great post mrs peabody.

        • VV says:

          Interesting observation. I might add too the the Hirgas and Giudices have known each other from the old continent. They come from the same town in Italy. I’m sure Juicy, Teresa and Joey grew up together since babies.
          According to Joey and Melissa the feud started 10 years ago. Exactly when Mel came in the picture. Melissa is the only new variable in this equation. I still think she is the source of this ongoing feud. I think she adds fuel to it. I think she’ll do anything to hurt the Gorgas because she feels they don’t like her.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I agree 100%

      • melthehound says:

        So that’s what all the black stuff was.. Canned Hair 😆

        Add me to the bunch that thinks Teresa did the right thing by going and getting help rather than jumping in. Of course, some saw a coward and no matter what T may have done, it would have been wrong. For the record, I don’t think Joey BIT anything but rather Hit. I’ll say though that the gorgas went there for a confrontation and boy did they get one.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Was Teresa supposed to jump into the fight? That worked out so well for Melissa (who must be used to having to protect her munchkin husband). She was so worried about his hair marker rubbing off and the whole world seeing what phonies they are in every aspect of their lives, down to the sprayed on hari.
      I think it is so funny that people are criticizing Teresa for going to get help. . If she had stayed and fought, I am almost sure there would be criticism that she hurt Melissa or her brother or SOMETHING.

      • Nancy says:

        Plus…they fight dirty. Melissa was scratching Joe’s face and Joey was bitting Joe’s balls. To me that says a lot.

        • VV says:

          Joey biting balls proved HE CAN’T FIGHT!
          Melissa tsk tsk tsk … Not a lady

          • chismosa says:

            I still don’t get why this is a bad thing ?

        • Laineylainey says:

          Gives new meaning to scratch n sniff!

      • Laineylainey says:

        Her (mel) ranting afterward seemed very …ummm…non sequitur. I’m prob using that wrong. I kept thinking, didn’t she see what just happened? She’s complaining about Teresa because she DIDN’T hit, punch, kick or scratch other human beings? She (mel) walked away from that mess and THAT’S what had her the most upset? Not one word to her husband for starting the fight, not one word about the spray-on hairin a can, not one word about how he stole her black thong, not one word about Joeys odd choice for a snacks and nibbles…. So interesting that she had not one word about all that strange stuff; but her disgust was about Teresa’s choice not to physically harm others.

      • chismosa says:

        No the criticism is only at me– just me— one person. Yay

        • Laineylainey says:

          Chismosa….the anti-Tre peeps usually come on board later.💛 I kow it’s not fun when it seems like no one agrees with you, if I went too far and hurt your feelers, I sawwwwy, my little Amiga. 💕 If that happened it was unintentional.

          • chismosa says:

            No no— never you! Seriously. You can criticize me all day long lovie.
            Honestly ….no hurt ! 😉😉

    • TexasTart says:

      LMAO at chisomas’ post! 😆
      Have a good day and stay cool. 😀

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Loved seeing Joey smear his” spray-on hair in a can” on everyone…that stuff proved to be useful in the fight. He might have gotten thrown like a rag doll, and he might not have gotten a good solid punch in, but HE DID get BLACK TAR onto juicy and the whole gang. Now THAT was funny.

      But, I’m Not going to celebrate anyone being injured. That’s not enjoyable to me.

      Word to the wise – if you’re witness to a brawl…don’t try to separate the combatants, you will get hurt. Wrist sprain, sprained ankle, broken finger, etc. Girl, unless you’re one the “old ladies” from Sons of Anarchy, do not stay and let yourself get hurt. Especially if you are a mother and your little kids need you. Run away and get help.

      Plus, legally, no one can say boo against you if you do not partake in a physical altercation.

      If Tre had jumped in, the fight would have escalated to be between Mel and Tre. Nobody wants to see that. Oh nevermind, Andy and his production company most definitely would want to see that. Maybe some viewers would want to see Tre lowering herself to such a low level of jumping into a fight between two men. But I, personally, do not.

      With that said, I think Mel could see her husband was at a huge disadvantage and that’s why she probably thought she could help Joey. I understand that. I don’t agree with it, but I do understand her motivation, she was scared for her Joey!

      She (Tre) turned me off big time when she flipped that table as a form of intimidation and an expression of her rage way back when…. so now I’m a little bit proud of her,…She’s obviously learned to contain her rage a bit and she did not get involved. I hope I’m not speaking to soon about her “learning”…but I would have found it disgusting of her as a wife and mother if she had jumped in to the melee. Especially if it was her bro attacked her husband who obviously needs absolutely no help from Tre or Richie or Rosie or Mel or any of the people present who jumped in to help Joey.

      I’ve been witness to lots of rageful attacks and believe me, as a kid, I ran and hid. As a grown woman with responsibilities I knew I didn’t want to be arrested and cost my family a lot of embarrassment and/or money trying to deal with the court system.

      Running to get help is nothing to be ashamed of, it’s called self-preservation. It’s My opinion based on my own life experiences. ITS ALL IN THE PAST. Life is sweet and peaceful since I left home and got married. No punches here!!! yay!!!

      • Nancy says:

        (((Lainey))) 🙂

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I agree, I really have to hand it to Teresa that she did the most sensible thing out of the entire lot- and wanted the right intervention to break up the fight and opposed to adding the pile on. Melissa didn’t aid in breaking up the fight, she was an extra combatant.

        The fact that Teresa didn’t give her a real pair of raccoon eyes (instead of the ones behind 8lbs of eye shadow) tells me how sincere she was about trying to make things better.

  33. Powell says:

    I was just reading some more of your toddler stories from yesterday. My mom had a friend whose daughter went into meltdown in Macy’s. She played on the floor kicking and screaming. Her mother got on the floor, started kicking and screaming. Shoppers looked at her like she was crazy. Her daughter stopped, looked at her mom doing what she was doing and she stopped. Her daughter never did it again. Lulu if you try that you’ve got to have someone take a pic & you better show it to us. 🙂

    • Lulu says:

      LOL!!! Tried that he stops and thinks “mommy” is funny! I need to be a bit more clever then he.

    • Rebecca says:

      I had a friend who told me that when she tried to take her daughter out of a department store, her daughter threw herself down on the floor and had a massive temper tantrum. My friend picked her up and started to drag her daughter out. Her daughter responded by screaming “This is not my mother! This is not my mother! Help me!” Well, they look exactly alike, so no one interfered, but I thought that was rather clever and sadistic of the daughter, don’t you?

    • Orson says:

      Reminds me of when my friend and I were running some errands with his then toddler daughter. She didn’t want to leave the Radio Shack in the mall because she was very happy banging on the buttons on a computer keyboard. So we ended up on either side of her, each of us taking an arm, and up she went, kicking, crying and complaining. Once we got out to a clear part of the mall, we put her down so she could walk. Nope, she went on her belly, kicking, hitting, and crying. So we just went to one of the benches around that clear area and had a nice chat while Ashley got it out of her system. Or at least, got tired.

    when the twins were about 3, Shamrock 1 took them to Burger King to get lunch and play on the indoor jungle gym – lunch went well – so did playing – until it was time to go – first twin 1 threw an enormous hissy fit, and then twin 2 climbed up into the top part of the tunnel thing and refused to come out, carrying on and screaming – it was lunch hour – the place was pretty full – Shamrock 1 had hold of one screaming twin and ended up climbing up into the tunnel to retrieve twin 2 – she then placed her purse and diaper bag around her neck, threw both of them over one shoulder each, screaming and crying, and left – when she got home she left the car running came into the house and promptly broke down crying – I got her settled, and then went out to collect the two screaming meemees in the car – pretty sure the entire neighborhood heard them – shamrock 1 never went near Burger King again, and when she did go shopping, I went with her after that….oh my, the screaming…..

    I was at the mall once with Mr. Shamrock and a little boy was acting up – his Father bent down and took his sons’ face into his hands and said “David, focus – focus David – I want you to focus” David had to be about 3 or 4 – no clue what focus meant – he went right on screaming and trying to pull his Dad’s hands off of his face – honestly – focus? that’s what you say to your screaming son? that Father must have had a rude awakening!! focus…….heehee

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I’ve had days like that too. One days my brood are being especially naughty, they will run off in two completely different directions which makes me frantic.

      • mrs peabody says:

        LOL, my boys used to do that too when they were small. One day I was babysitting each of their sons (1 each from each son) and I’ll be darn they took off in different directions too. Could not believe my grandsons where doing the same thing each of their fathers did. Must be in the genes

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I live in a college town where there are still many people who are hippy-dippy types. So one morning at the donut shop, I overhear a couple explaining to their toddler that last night’s tantrum will simply not do. And that next time he feels that frustrated, he has to reach deep into his core and center himself. The child nodded sagely and kept munching the donut. Parenting fail.

  36. rabblerouser2010R says:

    So on another blog, someone observed that not only did Joey get his faux hair everywhere, but that he might have also pee-ed his pants. Someone said there was a big long, wet streak from his crotch on down.

    • Nancy says:

      LOL You got me kicked out of the bedroom last night as I couldn’t stop laughing
      at your Joe quote. My stomach still hurts from laughing.

    • Nancy says:

      I just watched it again and at first I thought he was wearing a black thong!
      I didn’t see any wet pants though.

      Melissa and Joe had to respond to all the black over anything so THEY
      put out there that it was black shoe polish. Good try. NOT!

      I’ve been reading allabouttrh too and they are hysterical. Calling JoeGo – Ball Muncher & Nut Nibbler made me laugh. I want to add Teabag Taster to the list of names.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I mean seriously, WHO DOES THAT? Bite a man’s private parts during a fight. It’s very suspect. Things that make me go hmmmm

        He had been drinking and it probably gave him the great big confidence that his little body couldn’t back up. Joey is in great shape and I’m sure he’s kinda strong, but Joe Guidice is much bulkier, thicker (more solid) and therefore stronger. Joey is a hot-head. I have a brother like that, he got beat up so much when he was young, but he was constantly PICKING FIGHTS with stronger guys, it was horrible. We all thought he had a death wish (by we I mean, me and my 3 sisters). He would tell us that he saw red and couldn’t think straight and would just start hitting guys in the neighborhood for the slightest perceived put down. Guys that were way bigger and stronger. Now I am talking about my brother from when he was the ages 10 to about 16. Not a grown man with a family. He since served in the Navy, went to college, worked as a geriatric nurse, now teaches at a nursing college,…and is the father of 5 girls. We (the sisters and I) were always so scared he was gonna have a boy and try to pressure the little guy to fight but God is good, and my brother has all daughters. He’s a big teddy bear now.

        When he first met my son, who was not even two at the time, he said “His hands are so small, he’s not going to be able to punch very well.” I couldn’t believe it. No, I could believe it. I just thought, thank Goodness my baby boy doesn’t have to see his Uncle very often (due to the long distance). LOL!!!

        • ramonacoaster says:

          Angels must have been watching over your brother growing up. Most men I know grow out of that phase. Unfortunately these jersey guys haven’t. JoeGo doesn’t look like he can fight. Lifting weights use different muscles than throwing punches. He has to resort to chomping on balls and trying to pinch Juicy’s nose off. So funny.

          • Laineylainey says:

            point !! there are 2 brothers and 1 sister that have 9 lives..and/or some very overworked guardian angels!!! Those three were all kinds of cray.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Oh, now I’ve got to watch that scene at least one more time. That’s absolutely perfect! Hah!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I just watched the extended fight on Bravo. (Yeah, I do have better things to do, but procrastination won out for a while.) Watch Melissa. She conveniently has on that pink top, so you can locate her. She’s by the windows, but just as Joey insults his sister, she scoots over by the door and is in the corner. Kathy moves aside as Melissa gets there. Melissa was ready for something. Then (editing), when Joey charges, she’s back over by the window. I wonder how many times they played out this scene to catch it all?

      Additionally, there is quite a crowd involved in the fight. Richie is pulling Joe back ineffectively. Kathy is pulling on Joe too. Melissa reaches over the whole mess to scratch Joe. Joe has his head down part of the time and his eyes closed because they’re grabbing at his face. Only Rosie is pulling Joey out of the fight. She has her arms locked around his waist and is pulling him backwards, away from Joe. No one tries to grab either fighter’s hands to get them loose, which seems the logical tactic (if one feels one can actually stop this). It is a very strange fight and it looks clear to me only Rosie saw Joey as the aggressor.

      I didn’t see transfer of black hair dye or stains on Joey’s legs. I think I’d better get to work instead of watching this again for now!

      • Rebecca says:

        Posters on all the blogs are dying over this scene. Who cares about the fight? It’s all all about the hair paint! I can’t wait to see Medusa try to ‘splain this one away in her blog.

        • chismosa says:

          I feel so bad for men losing their hair. It’s their THING. Peni$, hair, and height. That’s all they’ve got to women’s 40000 issues.
          I’m so glad JoGo shaved it off. Now gorilla can stick to his propecia that is likely affecting his sexy time with his gouma and breadwinner Teresa. No chance for sons I guess. Well, no more visits to the fertility clinic I should say.

          I use powder on my hair at times when I attempt to cover my grays after getting colored and that spray in a can stuff on TV looks good I wanted to order it ….

  37. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Bringing this over from another blog…

    The irony of her (Melissa) referencing Saddam to Teresa when her Joe and Richie, are Uday and Qusa of the show.

    Joey has an oil field in his hair and Richie doesn’t want to pay for gas.

But on the same day, my niece reported that all of her tests (CT and blood) came back clean and she is now a 2 year survivor of breast cancer. Such a rollercoaster for all who are touched by it. Prayers for that beautiful young girl and her family and friends. Sadly, they are not alone in any of this and I hope they can take some peace and strength from that.

      I forgot a new pro runway — thank you for the reminder — show’s not what it was so ehhhh, and they don’t rerun it at all– so great.

      Stay cool!
      We’re nearing 100 the next 2 days

    Another moment in NJ history. Joey wears “hair in a can”. What a total moron.

  40. Nancy says:

    Are you still around? I just read the other blog you were talking about and saw this…
    Someone asked why Joey has been angry these last 10 years? The answer was
    This is better than Prozac.

    Barf away….

    melissagorga’s video

  42. djprincessc says:

    Idk if this has already been discussed since I haven’t really been able to read the blogs as much, but that fight with Joe Guidice and Joe Gorga, the way Melissa is slapping Joe Guidice in the FACE during the fight DISGUSTED me. That woman has really shown her true colors! You don’t get in a fight between 2 men!! Let them have at it! She is such a little b**** the way she was slapping him in the face. If Teresa would’ve done that to Joe Gorga it would be ALL over the place. This show can’t be fake, there’s too much anger.

    • chismosa says:

      Hi DJ— I feel the opposite (of course 😞😞)- if Tre got in on it she’d have accolades at her. But she’s version 3.0 now and her guru/ guides likely have her on high temper control.

      My BIL insulting me on camera, to my SIL, to my nieces and nephews for 10+ years — id go for whatever tiny balls gorilla Napoleon had. The little homophobe needs something like that.

      Again, my issue is the pent up anger and attempts to stay rational at the vitriolic little Ape who nonstop insults — his wife, BIL, SIL, cousin-IL, daughters – we’ve seen that on camera kiddingly—-
      After trying for years to get through to slow-synapses Teresa…. It just got to this. Jumho
      It’s ok for Teresa to physically push Andy or a table. shed get a PARADE. But she’s 3.0 now.
      Of course Melissa is at fault! Of COURSE. Wouldn’t expect anything anything less

      —–how are you? Hot in Cali? We’re BOILING

      • chismosa says:

        Jumho= jmho

      • djprincessc says:


        At this point NONE of them are innocent and I don’t know how much MORE one is guiltier than the other. If Joe and Melissa weren’t so fame hungry and didn’t join the show we wouldn’t even be having this convo. But they did and here we are. lol.

        I love Teresa but she isn’t blameless, but I do think that she REACTS and not starts it. I’m like that, I don’t ever start anything but if someone else does its game on! So I get it, shes a reactor. Like didn’t Andy put his hands on her FIRST? So then she reacted and shoved him? lol.

        But back to the fight. Joe Gorga came lunging at Joe Guidice, what was he supposed to do?? Joe Guidice didn’t start it at all, he came in saying apologize and all hell broke loose. It is so cowardly for another man to bite anothers d*ck though. Just saying. lol.

        Anywho, I am good. It actually isn’t really hott here today, its about 73 right now and I think was like 80 earlier. I’m actually fine with the heat as long as its not humid. Last week it was reaallllyyyy humid and gross!!
        How are you?? 🙂

        • chismosa says:

          Gotcha —-again — my theory is of incredible pent up anger – joGo ‘charging’ when he can’t fight (compliment to him) — is akin to Tre flipping out the many times she has physically. Maybe because she’s a woman and was “oh so adorable!” back then she gets the pass. She’s not the same tv personality so whatever. I know Jo is laughable to everyone but I can relate to his being hurt because of family situations I’ve had. Estrangements of siblings, the wife/husband hating the brother/sister, etc.

          And again I don’t know nor saw the documents leaked telling what were exact circumstances that Kathy and Mel could join ***Teresa’s*** show under. Everyone of these tramps should have the same opportunity to chase their reality trash dreams equally. 😋

          Shockingly there are times I totally find Tre very cute and Melissa abhorrent, so I definitely don’t try to be black and white though that is my personality unfortunately, a lot. I just own it

          Stay well!!

  43. djprincessc says:

    There’s something I have been wanting to ask for a while because I’m genuinely confused again, but why is it that anytime I post a comment that has the curse words that start with S or B not allowed to post? I’ve seen other posters on here use profanity and its posted. It’s not like I’m swearing up a storm either, but I wanted to know is it a pick and chose kinda thing?? The comment I posted above had the actual B word in it and wasn’t allowed to post but if you go on other blogs I see the actual word posted all the time. I don’t get it???

    • Nancy says:

      Hi dj,
      Let me do the study as my husband always says…


    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I am not sure if it’s the actual words or how many that are used that causes the WP trigger.

      • djprincessc says:

        Hmmmm?? Not sure bc like I said it will only ever be one MAYBE 2 bad words. Oh well, I’m not gonna die if I can’t swear. lol.

    • melthehound says:

      There are only a couple words that will trigger that filter.. B isn’t one of them as far as I know… F is the only one I can really think of that does. There is nothing in moderation right now and I don’t see anything of yours that went to spam.. So, maybe your comment just didn’t post.

      • djprincessc says:

        Well IDK what to tell you Mel cus it has been the B word and S word. Next time it happens I’m gonna screen shot it and post it so you can see but who knows if that would be allowed to post! lol. It said “Your comment cannot be posted.” I took the actual word out and added the *** and poof it posted. Like Detox would always say ***Shrug*** lol.
        Where is Detox btw, I haven’t seen her in ages!! 😦

        • melthehound says:

          I believe you … Maybe I missed it and you said the ‘your comment cannot be posted’… I use those two words or have, quite often, and never had a problem with them not posting.

        • Orson says:

          Didn’t you get the memo? Instead of the s word, you type “Luann”. As in “The Countless is full of luann”.

  44. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Stars, I was so caught up in TAR-zan gate I forgot to mention thanks for the great blog.

  45. melthehound says:

    Good afternoon everybody… Hotter than blue blazes here… Last week my nephew asked me to watch his two kids during the day while he’s at school and then work. Those with a 10 and 7 year old know that nothing is more boring to them than sitting around the house so today, we went to McDonalds and to the Guitar center to get some strings for my grand nephew’s guitar. Well, while we were in there, my grand niece got some woman who was there with her group while they go their instruments worked on, to teach her how to play some stuff on a ukulele. Just one simple chord and a strumming pattern but it seems she may have a knack for it.. My grand nephew on a guitar on the other hand, I don’t know if there’s any hope… Sorry about the crappy picture but it was taken with my new $20 phone 😉 Ya kind of get what you pay for these days. This would have been a perfect video moment had I taken my video camera but thems the breaks.

  46. AZGirl says:

    I watched the extended version of the fight and Joey was grabbing JoeG crotch. Like really aggressive. What man does that in a fight? Seriously. It is so disgusting.

  47. VV says:

    Is this old news? Nene’s new show.

  48. djprincessc says:

    Nancy, can I have your email address?? I’ve been meaning to ask you some questions related to the medical industry. Can you help me pleeeeeeaasssss? 🙂

  49. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Can anyone see this video?

  50. TexasTart says:

    Hilarious comments about 1st look from all youse!!! 😆
    I’m gonna have to breakdown and see Joeys hair spread all over! I don’t find this online, do they air it again or do I just have to look on Sunday?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      HI TT, we are trying to find if some site has the first look posted but other wise ya, unfortunately it will have to wait. But trust me. knowing what it is and seeing it unfold makes it so much funnier.

      • Rebecca says:

        OMG just watched it again and am now laughing out loud like a lunatic. How much more are these “famewhorgas” going to embarrass themselves?

      • VV says:

        Thank you for posting. First time seeing it. It amazes me how Melissa “somehow” found a way to blame Teresa. It is so clear to me why Joey is so pissed at Teresa because just like Teresa says; Melissa chirps on his ear every stinking opportunity she can “it’s your Teresa’s fault” Joey is so easily manipulated by his wife.

        What happened 10 years ago that changed their relationship? Melissa came in the picture. Enough said.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Oh good, I am glad you caught it.
          At 1:41 you can see the inside of Joey’s hat…also known as a science project and home to all ‘dat black shit’.

          • VV says:

            OMG! How much shoe polish did he use? and Melissa asking what the black stuff was all innocently…she’s a pathological lier and that victim number she’s been playing for two years now is getting very old. She’s a dangerous human being.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              You know in this weird twisted way, the way she raced over to put his hat back on his head was like a modern day Cinderella….Jersey On Steroids style.

      • TexasTart says:

        Thanks boston!

  51. BB says:

    I’m just testing to see if this works. I’ve been trying to post all day. Using a different e-mail address.

  52. Laineylainey says:

    Uh oh…did I miss under the dome? Maybe it didn’t play this week?

    • Mrs Peabody says:

      it played, I dvr’d it but haven’t watched it yet.

    • chismosa says:

      It’s on demand ….

      I want that tall hispanic kid keeping
      the girl underground killed

      • Laineylainey says:

        It’s always odd when a super handsome guy plays the villain. I think it makes it even scarier. Not sure why.

        • chismosa says:

          He’s ok to me— but looks NOTHING like the father. Terrible casting. Love his height though. He’s basically a sociopath.

          I get annoyed when they cast brown eyed children of blue eyed parents. (I.e. Jon Hamm’s daughter on Mad Men)
          Um, it doesn’t make sense ! It’s like a .0000003% chance!

          I know this stuff, I obsess about inherited traits

  53. Orson says:

    Weekly chat tomorrow 9 pm eastern!

  54. Nancy says:

    If anyone wants to watch The First Look (to see the entire fight) boston just posted a
    link upthread. (Thank-you boston)

  55. Mrs Peabody says:

    Was just over on the sister n law’s bravo sit and found out why brother joeyg is so jealous of Tre……wait for it…….she has hair and he doesn’t. Funniest post over there.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Haha! Just came from S.H. One of the posters calls the gorga’s “stripperMel” and “slowjoe”….funny

    • chismosa says:

      I mean I know it’s jokingly but I feel bad bc I got my father’s hair – I feel girls do???— and he’s 77 and still has all his hair and has to get haircuts like every week. I have Teresa’s hair, just thicker unfortunately — but my brother is losing at the crown and I feel SO bad.

      I for some reason have a personal theory women get their looks and hair from their fathers. Most women I know look exactly like their dads
      And it’s known that men’s hair comes from their mother’s male blood relatives. So I’m sure Teresa’s maternal grandfather or uncles didnt have much.

      Men are verrrrry insecure and don’t know how to handle it. Women are superior of course when handling emotions and physical pain– and have networks of friends to discuss and many can cope alone. Men cannot (men do not open up to their ‘friends’ about things) and that is why marriages are more important for men– I’ve read !!!????? Seriously I read this

      Oh ps I think Chris Jacq’s husband has some transplants

      • Laineylainey says:

        I will say a positive thing …here it comes.. I think the “show polish” led to him shaving his head once and for all. It looks much better shaved.

        • chismosa says:

          Many men are shaving now Lainey. It’s the new thing. I think there’s something going on medically causing men to go bald so much. I really really do. Scary.

          (Saying this as I run away from my microwave)

          • cusi77 says:

            Just take a look to Papa Gorga… He “Takes borrowed” from one side to the top of his head, his head looks like Mozzarella cheese!Lol.

            • chismosa says:

              Yeah it doesn’t follow my theory Cusi with her —- but she’s got extensions in now ….

              I’m still working on my “theory” LOL

        • Rebecca says:

          It’s not like there’s anything of substance inside his huge melon though. I bet when Melissa leans in she hears the ocean.

          • chismosa says:

            That’s funny

            I’m getting ready for my Frederik fix tonight ! Yum can’t wait

          • cusi77 says:

            Haa! That is very funny, Rebecca! It was a man that was too, too short… that his head smell like feet!Lol!

  56. Powell says:

    I’m watching Southern Fried Homicide on ID. Tonight’s epi is about a wealthy women in VA, horse & polo community. Her name is Suzane and she killed her Latin BF who was a polo player. He was at the top in his country & then came to VA. She was found guilty but only spent a very short time in the county jail. I remember when it happened. But guess who they are interviewing about what happened? Tareque Salahi. LOL. He does or still lives there. That man squirmed his way onto this show I bet. He is still trying to get fame.

    • chismosa says:

      I’m sorry but the name of that show is HYSTERICAL!!!! Lollll
      I hope Joel uses that on the Soup

  57. rabblerouser2010R says:

    For anyone who missed the First Look, Fame Whorga’s got copies of it on their site.
    At 1:41 you can see Melissa running up to Joey to put his hat back on his head- and you can see on the inside it’s covered in all that ‘black shit’.

    • VV says:

      Why was the hat so important? Even after that ugly altercantion in which she was a willing participant, her main concern was to cover her husband’s head. Cameras never stop rolling for her. She’s so deep. It’s all about the looks.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I think because Joe was sweating and the tussle had it smear every where. There is a another clip of him a few seconds later where she is giving him the once over and this look comes across her face like “WTF- the gig is up”.

  58. boston02127 says:

    Has anyone been watching Jeff Lewis? His b/f from last season hasn’t been on. Are they still together?

  59. VV says:

    If Joe Giudice was a homophobe like some claim. He wouldn’t hang out with Rosie. In fact, Rosie wouldn’t hang out with him. Just sayin’

    • djprincessc says:

      THANK YOU!!!! THANK YOU!!!

    • chismosa says:

      Some is me, likely? – — though i have read on other blogs other people say that, so not sure if its directed at me— but of course people don’t become black and white about such things. I can be racist but my brother can go marry a black woman or an Asian woman and I can still be nice with her, even love her.
      Doesn’t change I’m racist because I like/love her

      • VV says:

        Chismo, not you. Nothing anybody will say, type or do will ever change your hatred for the Giudices. So, I am not attempting that monumental task that will likely end in failure. However, I read many that “claim” he is and I am just offering food for thought.
        I’m not buying the Bravo edit. We know Andy despises Juicy. We know Joey and Wakile had made homophobic remarks. Somehow, those two get a pass….

        • Rebecca says:

          Those two idiots are on youtube btw, so there’s no way people can say any differently.

  60. Mene Seela says:

    Hahha!!!! Rabblerouser “At 1:41 you can see Melissa running up to Joey to put his hat back on his head- and you can see on the inside it’s covered in all that ‘black shit’.”

    Does anyone remember those old car games .. the one with a plastic cover over a drawing of a bald guy? It had metal shavings that you used a magnet pen to arrange the shavings into the guys hair?

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      LOL- YES! My kids have a few of those….That’s exactly what it’s like.

      • Nancy says:

        Thanks for a very fun day RR. I can’t wait until next week.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          You too, Thanks for everyone…this has been the best blog day ever. I can’t stop laughing. My husband thinks there is something wrong with me.
