And here we go. Tonight is BIG FIGHT number one of the season for New Jersey. Most of us have already seen it on the first glimpse video, but for those of you that haven’t we learn that Joey Gorga fights dirty (going for balls) and seems to be wearing some sort of black shoe polish on his head.
It seems that the Gorgas didn’t get the memo that this season was their turn for the bad edit, because they still seem to think that they can try to pin world hunger on Teresa. The more they try, the more people defend Teresa.
Bravo must think we’re stupid, because they showed a scene of Caroline and Al at the SAME castle where the others are. The “story” we’re supposed to believe is that Caroline was called in to mediate. Apparently Dr. V. may not do the trick. Coincidence much that Caroline is hawking an advice book? I actually feel sorry for Caroline and Al. When Al said he couldn’t retire because his kids weren’t financially secure yet, I wanted to kick their asses. Let your dad retire and suck it up buttercups. If you can’t afford the designer handbags – don’t buy them. I’m talking to you Lauren. Your dad is way more important.
Teresa seems to rise in popularity the more she is attacked by her castmates. Teresa has made a few slips this season – one of them going to that lunch hosted by Kim D. Apparently it was to sell her hair care line to Penny and Melissa’s snake best friend Jan. I know Teresa isn’t the brightest bulb, but surely cameras, Kim D and Penny all add up to trouble in even her peabrain. Hello – no one could have missed Penny and Brian Bulldog interacting on twitter. Teresa should have left it up to almost housewife Jen to go to the lunch and bring the gossip to the show. I know, I know, she left the table the second Jan spilled the gossip – but a little too late since the cameras were rolling. I am utterly disappointed in Jen Dalton. She didn’t want the Gorga’s house listing – they already had an agent – she just wanted camera time. Transparent lies are boring.
The only question in my mind is – did the Gorgas blame Teresa for allowing the camera to capture that conversation? They couldn’t have possibly thought she sought out Jan and Kim D and set the whole thing up – it stinks of producers and hangers on like Penny and Kim D. Whatever it was, Joey and Melissa fell for the manipulation hook, line, and sinker and showed up at that retreat with a short fuse.
We know all ends well, so please don’t put any of your emotional energy into this group of people. They don’t deserve it. So let’s chat – and please, please, please, give us confirmation that Joey used shoe polish on his head.
