Real Housewives of New Jersey – S5E12 – It Gets Shittier

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-cast-and-info-rev_1Here we are again folks with another episode of Who Hurt MeGo this time… I have a headache… Let’s get through this. For those of you following her videos, here is ClosetFreak from last week.

This week’s show is broken down in to basically 4 themes and we’ll take each one on it’s own. I don’t feel like doing a line by line recap tonight. This show isn’t worth that effort and really never was. For the first time ever, I think, I didn’t mind seeing the sports chat on the blog last night. Who won the game ladies? Not that I care much about it but it’s more interesting than this show. Let’s get the filler out of the way first with the Manzoids and their folks.

In the apartment, I assume the one that Momz wants us to believe is a ‘downsizing test place’, there is a large empty space where the dining room table once stood. Where is it and why is it gone? I don’t know. It isn’t there and now we have to figure out what to do with the rug that now occupies the floor. The table, I would assume, got broken while Greggy and Albie were having a hot old time before he went out to San Francisco. I wonder if they invited Andy to join them. The Male Manzoids want to move the rug over by the couch so there is a comfortable place to rest the tootsies while they watch TV. They do and to me, it looks fine there. I’m not a decorator so what would I know? Maybe they should call Dina and get her input. Big Al, doesn’t like the arrangement of the room because he has to turn his head 10 degrees to the right in order to see the TV in an apartment he only sees when the camera is there. Whatever, Al.

In another scene, we are tortured with the female Manzoid and her intended, Vito. Seems that since she’s lost the weight, she no longer wants to get married and be a traditional wife. Let me translate that. As long as Mommy Manzo is around to buy businesses for her and provide her with a room in her apartment, she doesn’t need a husband. It could also be that since Greggy left, Momz has a third nipple available and Lauren is hoping to latch back on… Vito, Dude, You got off lucky and only wasted 3 years of your life with this one. Don’t worry if you still want her though. As soon as she finishes finding that 40 pounds she lost, and then some, she will come running back to you because you are the only one ever stupid enough to want her. Just one bit of advice though.. If you find the spot and get busy, put on a raincoat and flush it when you’re done so she can’t ‘baby trap’ you.

We find ourselves at a grocery store with Kathy and Fishy Richie. Why is he there? I thought he had businesses to run. Because the cameras are. Seems that Kathy is at the bakery counter and is trying to do a little market research. She asks questions, Richie answers them. Much to Kathy’s chagrin as she wants to hear what the people who work there have to say, not him. She even tells him so but, he’s the baked goods marketing expert so he knows all. Dude, it’s one thing to open a gas station that provides a product everyone needs. People come by, pay, fill their tanks and leave. You don’t even have to set the price, the suppliers (that you apparently haven’t paid) do that for you. It isn’t rocket science and doesn’t make you a marketing genius. Food, while people need it, much of it is discretionary and, people have to be enticed to buy it.

While they were at the grocery store, Rich gets a call from Joey… Whatever could he want? He wants a play date at the cigar bar with Chris and Richie… His new best buds. Joe likes cigars, why wasn’t he invited? I thought everyone was ‘good’ now.. What is a Cigar Bar, asks Richie? Why it’s code for strip joint. Brilliant. Can’t get anything past him, can we? Asshole. No one could be that stupid. Well, okay, maybe he could. While they are there, they ordered salads. No one thinks, salad, now I want a cigar… Everyone knows that a healthy smoke is best after a steak dinner with plenty of carbs. Not a fuckin head of lettuce. We’ll continue with this since it sets the scene for the next 48 episodes. MeGo’s birthday is coming up and Joey wants to do something special for her. Here’s an idea…. A Spa trip to Arizona where everybody attends, including Teresa and Joe and let’s not forget, the Jacalope. They have some of the best spas in the United States, don’cha know… I guess Lake George didn’t do it for them and besides, Lurkita wasn’t there to push his miracle murk so he needs that camera time back. Here’s a fun fact we learned from Joey… When he’s doing his wife, she surfs the internet and he has to remind her of what they are doing… I’ll let you rattle that one around for a bit while you remember his bragging about ‘tarzan’. I wonder if she’s watching porn so she can see how a real man does it. One other thing… If he were to get surgery for his wife, he’d want her to get bigger boobs. I think he should save her the trouble and get them for himself. Hers are big enough for her body. We will leave that there for now, or maybe forever… I haven’t decided yet.

Back at the Wakilie home, Kathy is in the kitchen experimenting. In walks the killjoy and complains that she isn’t using the test kitchen, that he signed a lease for, and she doesn’t want, never did, and he never discussed it with her before he leased it. I guess he pissed that money away, didn’t he? This is her business, she’s going to do it her way, so he’s out of it (yeah, right)… Continuing with the traditional wife theme, Momz and Kathy are taking a walk… Why? I have no idea but they are. Both are complaining it seems that they have ‘traditional marriages’ where they cater to their homes and now they don’t want that anymore but the hubbies expect to keep the girls they married. Got that? Correct me if I’m wrong… Both of these two were likely married in the mid 1980s to the early 1990s or somewhere in there. Momz’s first words ever on the show were to the affect of ‘I’m a true house wife’ (I saw it last week when they reran season one). My point is, this wasn’t 1955 where the traditional house wife was June Cleaver or Donna Reed. These women chose their lives and were damn lucky in that day and age to be able to. For most, being the housewife is another job, not the Only one.

Let’s move from the empty nesters to something else. I know, How about the Jacalope? Remember last week, we were to believe that there were no decent plastic surgeons in NJ or NY to do a tummy tuck for our fair F-Nut.. Only in Beverly Hills. We were further to believe that the night before her surgery, she got loaded and stuffed her face with food. Okay, we’ll go with that. Neither her daughter nor her parents thought this surgery was a good idea but good ole Jac needed a pick me up and me time from the strain of taking care of her kid and getting cut apart was just the ticket. I’m telling ya, if I hear another one of these heifers make that excuse for Jac not taking care of that kid on this show, I’m blocking Bravo all together and somebody else can do these reccaps (not that mine are actual recaps πŸ˜‰ ). Well, she’s home. Can’t wait to see the kids and they can’t wait to see her. We of course have to get the BLK placement as it is plastered across CJ’s head on his hat that he’s clearly worn a hundred times before πŸ™„ because it fits him so well. Couldn’t even adjust it for him, Lukita? Really? CJ goes outside and gives his mother a hug but the one she really wants to see is her reason for being on the show. Nicolas. It’s a cute scene I guess. She can’t pick him up because the surgery is still fresh. The babysitter carries the kid up the stairs so Jac can go to bed and have him laying next to her. I still say, all I see when I look at Nicolas is a normal 3 year old kid.

The next final ‘theme’ has to do with the Milania Hair Care products line that Teresa is launching. She invites MeGo to the event but also tells her that Jan and Penny will also be there (because they have Salons), so there’s that flaw in the slaw. This particular episode of the crapfest opened with a plug for MeGo’s hot marraige book. Teresa wondered why if it was about her marriage, Joey wasn’t pictured on the cover. Two reasons, T… First on the same day, he was flexing for some tanning company billboard. Second, the book isn’t about them, it is about Her. We read the first chapter and she did a damn good job of convincing us that she’s the perpetual victim in everything and nothing is ever her fault. She’s an expert at it. Word of that must have gotten back to her and her publisher because the text is no longer available for screening.

Anyway, sidebar to this discussion, MeGo tells Joey that she is going to this thing, he also told her about the trip and that Teresa has been invited (in some restaurant or something where they all discuss this and isn’t worth recapping beyond this sentance). Baby Joey wishes he was a girl so he could give these bitches a smackdown. Pay attention here because with one possible exception, this entire series of scenes is entirely bullshit. Remember what Joey called KimD the night of Stripper-gate? I called someone that once, lost friends because of it, and the target of that comment is just now beginning to talk to me again. Keep that in mind.

Back to regular programming. The day of the event we are in Teresa’s house as she is being made up by her stylist. We see Milania sliding down the stair rail, with a rack. Hey, she went big. Seems she found either her mom’s or her sister’s brar, put it on, and filled it up. There is a knock at the door and Milania lets KimD come in. Careful Milania… A vampire cannot come in unless invited. Don’t you people watch Supernatural? I digress. Gia rolls her eyes as if to say, wtf is that bitch doing here? More trouble for my mom? Kim asks Teresa about the change in Milania…. Seems Milania knows this product line is named after her. She wants to go to the launch party but T says it’s for adults. That’s the reason for the change in body type. Milania says, according to Teresa, if she cannot go to the party, she has to change the name. Can’t use hers (Milania’s). That kid has been a pistol with a mind of her own since the first episode of this show.Teresa tells Kim of the guest list for the night and the scene is set.

So where are we? Teresa earlier during a phone call to MeGo told her that per Dr V, these rumor mongers should be confronted by both of them, head on. Make them say it to her face. Don’t forget people, we are dealing with other famewhores who also want to be part of this cast. Don’t let anyone tell you different because no one made any of them sign the release forms or made them be filmed (interviews aside πŸ˜‰ ). These are people that MeGo should be quite familiar with because they are just like her.

Okay… We are at the event. Teresa is inside working the room when the others begin to arrive. The Gorgas arrive last. Oh, by the way, MeGo… I’m not always great with details but don’t think I missed that blatant move of yours as you were walking into the hall. Car in the way, Joey walks behind it out of camera sight which was the straight line path, you go out of your way and walked around it to get a full camera shot. You aren’t as slick as you think you are. Bravo editing has Really fucked up this season or they want to show her for the poser she really is. Take your pick since she no longer has a pal who is a producer.

Sidebar… When I was in college and belonged to a fraternity, I had met the girl of my dreams (or so I thought)… This was the girl I would later ask to be my wife. Didn’t work out that way but that’s another casino. She has an unusual name for here since she was from Iraq and was very sensitive to people making fun of it. Especially people she considered friends. One of my fraternity brothers, one day, did just that as she was approaching our table. I promised, my ‘brother’, that I would tear him a new asshole if he ever did that again, and I meant it. I never told her about it because I knew it would hurt her. There’s a point to me telling you that but, end sidebar.

Again, inside the room, Teresa is doing her bit and greeting her guests. Remember that inviting MeGo (and Joey tagged along so he could smack a bitch) was Teresa’s idea. She wanted to get the crap out in the open and end these cheating rumors that have now, hit the printed press. Someone got paid for saying it. Somehow, the perpetual victims, the Gorga’s, have pinned this on Teresa, again, as it is her army of haters that is responsible. Got that? All through the episode, MeGo is questioning Teresa’s body language, as if she didn’t have a legitimate point in asking about the absence of her brother from the book cover. A book that again, is about how to have a hot marriage. So, the first one we confront is Jan. MeGo’s BFFL. In case you forgot, that’s Best Friend For Life. Really, the only part of this convo I caught was Academy Award stated by Jan as she was walking away from this scene. I think she threw in a Thank You Jesus too. She of course was referring to MeGo’s performance and possibly Joey’s too. HE just stood their like an oaf with a shit eating grin on his face while these women, Jan and Penny, were saying that MeGo is a parking lot whore because on the night in question, that’s where she went with this bulldog character. She claims she doesn’t know what a parking lot girl is. Oh MeGo, I think you do. You just haven’t done it with anyone but your husband since you got married is all. I will say it again. You all know how I feel about MeGo. I think she’s a gold digger and a famewhore. I do not however believe she is a cheater and I will stand right next to her and deny it to anyone who says she is. If this bulldog character produces an unedited picture of her with his dick in her mouth, I might believe it then but, not before. He needs to sit down and stfu otherwise. So do these other heifers making the claims.

Given the edit, Teresa was only interested in clearing her own name… Getting these two to say that she had nothing to do with both, stripper-gate nor the cheating rumors. We get it Teresa, it isn’t your fault, but it is, as I’m sure we will soon learn. This is your army after all. Even MeGo’s BFFL… How much of a pig do you have to be for your best friend to turn on you that way? Or is Jan the pig? Probably Both of them are. Speaking of Pigs, whatever happened to Momz’s sister and her zoo? Did they run Big Al out of the house yet and that’s why he has his daughter’s sourpuss look all the time? Or is it because he can’t spend time with his side piece because he has to show up and do something to earn that Bravo paycheck?

Now, remember his exchange with Kim D at Stripper-gate, what he said he wanted to do with these bitches, and what I said I did when confronted with a similar but far less sensitive situation. WHY, is Joey standing there on the wall with a dumbass look on his face? Why not defend your wife and I might add, yourself, to these woman making these vile claims? He has talked shit to and about his sister for two straight years now and he lets this slide? B.U.L.L.S.H.I.T. Bravo set up, Bravo production behind the cheating rumors, have to set the scene for Retreat 2.0 because it’s all Teresa’s fault and at the time, Next Season. Whoops… The Feds may have other ideas about Teresa being the common enemy next season. Oh No’s… Their trial starts Oct 8 and when does NJ filming usually start? What will Bravo do now? I know, reshoot half of this shitfest a la Russel Armstrong or re-edit what they already have. Keep your eyes peeled folks. These federal indictments were released late last month. They contain charges stemming from 2001 to 2009. I am waiting here for someone to tell me that they didn’t tap Bravo for footage of the Guidices while preparing their case. It doesn’t happen that way. They don’t accuse and then attempt to prove, they prove (in their minds) and then accuse and they have all the resources in the world, at our expense. That’s why their conviction rate is so high. The show originally aired in May of 2009 with Teresa’s infamous shopping trip. What am I saying here? Bravo had hints this was coming. Bravo is very well known for it’s trickery and again, I’m calling Bullshit.

Next week we are in the Phoenix state. Why, yes, Jacalope makes this trip too. I guess a week of getting sliced apart wasn’t enough Me Time away from Nicolas to satisfy her. I am sure we will see plenty of BLK water bottles as people pretend to choke down the miracle murk. What else will we see… I think I saw some crying… From the men. Do ANY of the men on these shows have any balls? I am now convinced that the quick way to a sex change is to sign up to be a part of a Bravo show.. The kickstand and balls will fall off and a vagina will grow in place of them before the ink dries. Then get the shots to lose the facial hair and grow boobs. Not big enough? Go under the knife to get bigger ones. Viola. Done. Fine’.

Blog comment of the night, Many but this one was good from Cusi77

“Hit her with your Birkin purse, Joey!”

See you next week… MTH.

PS… If it appears, that I’ve had my fill ofΒ  Housewives from reading this, I will pat myself on the back for a job well done. If any of you think I actually care about any of these people, then I have failed and I will try harder next time.

      Once again Mr. Mel, you have gone waaaay beyond the call of duty. Your recap is spot-on buddy!

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Whooooo what a title to last night’s crapfest 2013. I can’t wait to read MTH. It’s the first day of school in MD. Anyone else going back to school today? Have a great day everyone.

    • chismosa says:

      That’s EARLY Powell- kids are back at school?

      Or are you talking college ???
      Have a nice day ✌✌

      —-“Obsessed” with Melissa Gorga (aka OMG)

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Elementary and high schools have been open in my community since last Monday.

        My son starts his junior year at a 4-year college tomorrow. He completed his first two years at a local community college. The 4-year school is also in town so he can live at home and save his parents a bit of room and board money, which is great considering his five books cost almost $600.

        The heat is back on in Huskerland and so is my A/C. Happy Monday to all!

        • BB says:

          Public schools don’t start here in VA until the day after Labor Day (I think it’s the law). It’s been that way since my kids were in school and they are in their late 20’s, early 30’s now. There are exceptions to the law in certain parts of VA, but for the most part, it’s after Labor Day.

          • Illinois districts are back in session. Chicago was the after Labor Day holdout. Apparently, it is better to get exams out of the way before winter break because kids can forget what they learned in that two week timespan.
            My house is semi quiet. The one in HS is back. The one in college leaves on Thurs 😦

    • LaineyLainey says:

  3. Rebecca says:

    Good morning everyone.

    I personally feel that Melissa and Joey are the most narcissistic couple to ever grace us on tv (and yes I know the Kartrashions are still on). Melissa feeds her ego by her looks. She’s had everything redone – hair, teeth, nose, lips, boobs, etc. Joey is just the same. The naked selfies of him make me want to gag. That being said – you bet your ass she cheated on him. (I believe Bulldog 100%He cheated on her as well. And I don’t give a shit. They are both shitty, horrible people and they deserve each other. They are a perfect match. I just wish they’d be a perfect match off camera. If I yell at them to “GO AWAY enough times, will it work?

  4. TexasTart says:

    Oh my goodness, I’ll bet that is not an episode title from Bravo, oh MTH is a genius at making me laugh! πŸ˜† Thank you for the blog today!

  5. AZGirl says:

    Morning everyone! Watched reruns yesterday. I swear the Manzos are just sad to watch. I don’t believe Bravo would actually give the a spin off. Al is horrible to Caroline and Caroline is a miserable old woman. MTH is right Vito got lucky and is off the hook with Lauren. He should run for the hills.

    @Powell: AZ kids go back to school the end of July and first week of August. Too hot for them to do anything. They get out early May.

  6. Rebecca says:

    Did anyone watch Eat Drink Love? Another shitty series from Bravo. (We’re sticking to a theme here, MTH)

    Another bunch of back-stabbing bitches when we thought this was going to be about the elite women chefs of LA. We have a total slut food writer who sleeps with chefs for articles, an angry publicist who hates everyone because she hasn’t figured out she’s a lesbian yet, a private chef who thinks the world revolves her although she can’t cut it in a restaurant kitchen, and a bitter ex of Michael Voltaggio who appears to have come on the show for revenge. I bet he stops showing up on Top Chef when he sees himself being trashed every show.

  7. Donna says:

    School Daze… I was told that the reason for different times for school days is that at one time it was because of the different seasons for farming so the children could help plant, care for, gather crops. There are less family farms now, big farma has taken over the production of our food supply.

  8. cusi77 says:

    Great Blog MelTheHound! The title couldn’t be better and have laughing all the way throught the Recap!

    So JoeyGo could go Bananas-Oklahoma on Kim D while searching for baldy Angelo to confront him for saying that Melissa was a stripper BUT he just stood there while Jan was calling Melissa a cheater, that she was he alibi and Joey “Angel of God” didn’t approach her to find out about the details… Hmmmm, Then a whole another opportunity to defend his wife from Penny and he is still there standing like a fool… Sangre de atole!!! This guy is in steroids (allegedly) and did n.o.t.h.i.n.g. to defend his wife honor? What the heck is going on? Ahhhhhh… Bravo! If Melissa cheated on Joey she would be 6 feet under, dear peeps!

    I was mentioned on the Blog!!! I am rich, I am famous! Haa!

    • melthehound says:


    • VV says:

      I think he was speechless because “maybe” “maybe” there were some truth to those rumors as he was hearing what Penny and Jan had to say. See, he takes his cues from Melissa and I don’t think Melissa was fully prepare to react to what Penny and Jan told her on camera.
      Bravo left A LOT of footage on the floor during those conversations. A LOT.

      • cusi77 says:

        VV_ But in the TH she was blaming Teresa for not coming to her defense… What about her husband standing right behind her? This sounds very much like “Bravo” is pissing in us and we think it is raining (Thanks my beloved Judge Judy!!!).

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        There was a ton of footage left on the floor and the storyline experienced a change in course as well. Teresa didn’t even get to talk about her products!
        It is only wishful thinking on my part, but I want to say that Joey Gorga was looking kind of thoughtful and reserving judging for a later time, while Jan and Penny tawked to Melissa. His false bravado “If anyone was cheating, it should have been ME!” killed those noble qualities.
        Props to Teresa and Joe Giudice for standing there during those salacious convos – the little bro and SIL have gone violent before (only on relatives) and were there for moral support and in case a casino was caused.
        And I would pull that academy award from Melissa because her acting was straight up horrible! She wasn’t righteously indignant that her faithfulness vow was getting trampled on by her former BFF or the salon owning “stranger” who did her wedding parties’ hair and makeup.

      • toodybird says:

        Yes, appropriate title and devoured MTH’s recap.

        Mego’s hand on top of her husband’s shoulder meant stfu.

        And did you see her suck, suck, sucking on her drink? Hey, Me go! Body language expert! ‘Splain that!

  9. melthehound says:

    I would love to stay here and chat with you ladies but my charges are here. He has taken the key to her diary and is rubbing on his balls. Then he apparently put it in his mouth to piss her off even further. The day is young and I am sure she will come up with some way to annoy him. Ya just can’t make this shit up. If you don’t hear back from me in a little while, call 911 because they have skinned me and are wearing my skin like a coat,. I don’t have any tatoos though πŸ˜‰

    • BB says:

      Sounds like your day is off to a great start. HA!

    • not THAT Jill says:

      Oh Lord….boys are gross!!! My nephew(5) picked his nose and wiped it on Maggie this morning…thank God we will be out all day cause this day has the makings of being a real martini inducer already!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        My kids didn’t fit that mold. My son was not gross. But my daughter was very, very gross. hahahahha!!!

    • Iowagirl says:

      Funny as hell!

    • lulu says:

      OMG MTH sounds like a promising day ;). Well atleast the recap is done and well done!!! I’ve learned not to eat or drink anything while reading your recap πŸ˜‰

      • melthehound says:

        Well, now she knee’d him in the nuts and he punched her in the face. Not to worry though, in 30 seconds they’ll be fine and back at it.

    • AZGirl says:

      This is why I am a firm believer in year long modified calendars for schools. By August the kids are bored and go crazy.

      • melthehound says:

        I am making a whopping $20 per day to watch these kids. Don’t mess with my money with a good idea, AZgirl πŸ˜€

        • AZGirl says:

          $20 dollars a day???? Jeff next summer I will negotiate your pay.

          • melthehound says:

            Nephew is short on cash due to school right now or they would be in day care camp or something like that… Funny thing is, they never behave this way when they are with the neighbor lady (who has 2 of her own). Usually, they are just being silly but I tire of hearing “Uncle Jeeeeeeeeeeffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff….. ” … Right now they are cleaning my carpet of the dog hair by dragging each other around….

        • jezzibel says:

          your getting ripped off..I used to charge $5.00 per kid and $5.00 per hour, but then again I was a reliable teenager with no boyfriend, and trust me when I tell you I had a lot of parents hire me and I cleaned up (One summer I made more than my mother and she was career military).

  10. Iowagirl says:

    Is anyone watching the series The White Queen on starz? I read the book and am watching the series. It is really well done, I highly recommend it.

      wah, wah, I don’t get starz. Maybe I’ll order the book.

    • T-Rex says:

      We watched the first episode, going to catch up on the others this week. I love historical dramas like this, especially this time period, I am a history buff, and have been explaining to Mr T-rex the characters. Although he isn’t really interested in all of the background intrigue and info, and pretty much turns on his “wife-deafness”, HA!

    • karrylyn says:

      I saw the first episode, I need to catch up!! thanks for the reminder!

    • ladebra says:

      I ordered Starz just for this mini series! Loved all 3 of the books in the trilogy. I am hoping since this is a 10 part series, they will do the other books also. I loved the Pillars of the Earth mini series, and World Without End also. I am keeping an eye out for a movie/series based on Jaimie and Claire from the Outlander series!

    Jeff, great job. Writing the blog for this show must be exhausting. We appreciate your humor and cutting through the BS approach.

    Love, love, love the recap! Fantastic job MTH.

  13. AZGirl says:

    I watched the preview for next week. Does anyone know where they are staying in AZ. It looks like Tucson from the clip. The fact that they get a visit from a bat it most likely is Tucson. Trust me a bat is nothing. They should worry more about snakes and scorpions.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I went to Tuscon in May 2012….LOVED IT!!!! Beautiful!!

    • T-Rex says:

      My Aunt Catherine and Uncle Pete lived in Tucson and we visited them whenever we were camping out west. Yep, remember a little bit about the bats, but what I mainly remember is my Aunt Catherine showing us the proper way to check our shoes each morning in case a scorpion decided to make them a home for the evening. I also remember the ginormous rattler that we saw once hiking out there. We get our fair share of snakes in Florida, we see a lot on the trails here, but that one we saw out west was huge. Now, I was a little girl so maybe it’s the same size as Florida snakes. We haven’t been out there since they passed away a long time ago. I remember her taking us to these really neat places near the reservations, she was a volunteer teacher and could get us into really nifty places most tourists didn’t get to see. We have a pic at one place where we were crawling into some primitive cave dwellings, that today you can’t get any where near any longer, can only see them from afar.

      • AZGirl says:

        I saw the biggest rattler ever this past spring hiking in the Superstitions. It had to be at least 6 feet long. Huge. Took up the entire dirt road.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          And you like living there? My friend lives outside of Tucson and she is always sending me pictures of critters that crawl out of the desert and land on her driveway or pool area. Not for me. I can put up with the rabbits eating my garden, but that’s about it!

          • AZGirl says:

            Tucson gets a LOT of critters. Especially if you live on outskirts of town. Mountain Lions, Javelinas, Bobcats, snakes, Gila monsters (poisonous). Yep and lots of Jack rabbits and quail.

            • Rebecca says:

              We have those outside my office window! I haven’t seen the javelinas yet, but I see owls, coyotes and roadrunners plus everything else on your list.

  14. VV says:

    Jac, Kathy and Melissa’s Crapfestos are up!

  15. AZGirl says:

    That preview scene with the bat reminds me of our family trip down the Colorado in the Grand Canyon. 3 days 2 nights. Bats are everywhere. They buzz you at night when you are sleeping on the beach. There was a couple from North Carolina that were on our boat. Boat captains park for the night and give instructions to find a place to sleep BUT DON’T ROLL OUT YOUR SLEEPING BAG UNTIL YOU ARE READY TO GET IN THEM. Well Mrs.NC asked me why and I told her that you will have an unwelcome visitor in your bag if you do unroll it.
    Once we all settled in that night it is pitch dark. No moon. Mrs. NC keeps saying something is brushing up against her forehead. My son’s chime in and tell her its bats. I don’t think that woman slept at all on that trip.

    • Rebecca says:

      They stayed at Miravol. Yeah – out of Phoenix!

      • AZGirl says:

        Is that the resort that host the PGA tournament where it snowed last year? I never been there. On the way to Oracle. Rooms start at 350 per night. Jeepers. Why would they want to host HWONJ? Not very classy group. I see BH getting a freebie.

  16. Jeff~~Thank You for blogging the Crapfest because you got it all right. I didn’t get to see all of it because I was watching Big Brother and it was being dvr’d. I watched some of the repeats later. I like the kids better than the adults at the parties. Kids run, laugh, tease and generally have a bucket load of fun. The adults just say nasty, mean things to each other and drink too much. UGH

  17. VV says:

    Bravo manipulates TH as well. I listened to the TH of Joey saying: ‘I was always suspicious that Teresa was involved in all this rumors that are out there…’ he then says he forgives her ( you can see him mouthing these words all of this time. However, when he starts talking about. ” So, as long as my sister is not behind the article talks Melissa is cheating on me” <— This part is voiced over and you can tell it was added because the flow of him speaking is different than it sounds slightly different. It was definitevely added to his original TH.

    • melthehound says:

      I have no doubt about that VV… They are all filmed at once so they have lot’s of footage of these people wearing the same clothes and everything.

      • VV says:

        My understanding is that TH are shot throughout filming and then again during post production. That is why we see them with different hair styles and clothes, pre-nose job, after nose job etc. Then producers pick and chose from these interviews to tie the stories together. They are actually interviews the cast just answers questions. So, producer asks question that they will input in certain parts of the episode that matches and/or stir the pot the way they want.
        All manipulation.

        • melthehound says:

          I can’t get past seeing Kim RIchards in that same blouse with the huge bow on the shoulder (I think) in almost every TH during the Bruno Buttafucco season (S2?)… That’s why I think they are all done at once, initially, It wouldn’t shock me πŸ™„ that changing stories may require them to reshoot the THs at a later date…. Like after the feds come after a cast member.

          • VV says:

            Knowing Kim Richards. She hardly works or participates in events. She probably sat down twice for Interviews (Talking Heads) that year and Bravo had limited footage to work with and probably used all that was shot with her πŸ˜†

  18. Barb Taylor says:

    It will be interesting to see how Bravo handles filming next season of this show. I firmly believe that Theresa and Joe willingly and knowingly BOTH filed fraudulent loan applications and are BOTH guilty. In previous posts I have seen people state that Joe made her do it and she didn’t know what she was doing, and that they feel sorry for her. Then someone will inevitably state the fact that there are four innocent children and that the courts should go easy on them. I pray that the judicial system throws the book at them both and gives them jail time. It is not in the best interest of those little girls to be raised by criminals. Since they already have champagne taste on beer budgets it will also be in the kids’ best interest to see what happens to people who STEAL! Also everyone who thinks that they don’t pay for these thieves extravagant lifestyle are kidding themselves. We are all paying for defaulted loans with high interest rates! Deport Joe and let someone else raise the kids!

    • Rebecca says:

      No we’re not. Mortgages rates today are LOWER than they were when Juicy got his loans.

      • melthehound says:

        This…. Plus, the only time interest rates on credit cards go through the roof is when people have bad credit themselves. It only takes one, ONE, late payment for all of them all to jack you,..

        • Rebecca says:

          The first loan is question is from 2001. Interest rates were about 7% back then. Most of ours hover around 4% right now.


    • chismosa says:

      Barb it’s Melissa’s fault this all happened. So we’ll see what happens.


    • T-Rex says:

      I really feel badly for their children, and family, seriously, I don’t care for The Juicy’s, I don’t wish that anyone is deported or someone other than these girls’ parents raise their kids, they seem to be good parents. The negotiations have begun for a settlement of charges, but the Feds want both to get jail time from the recent attempts at negotiations. As someone that deals with bankruptcy stuff, not as a lawyer, the Feds are hell-bent on sending Juicy to jail for quite some time. As my friend in the DOJ says, they probably want Juicy for 5-10 years. They aren’t going to plead out Teresa without JuicyJoe agreeing to some serious jail time.

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      I’m not even sure if this will get read but Barb is 100% correct in that we are all paying for the FRAUD perpetrated by people like Teresa and Joe. Did no one experience any difficulty during the recession or have we completely forgotten what happened over the last four years? Interest rates have been lowered because the US Government was forced to buy trillions of dollars of bad mortgages which were signed for by people LIKE teresa and Joe (and encouraged by sleazy mortgage brokers), inflating their incomes, blatantly LYING about their assets, and FABRICATING W-2’s etc. No offense to anyone here because I feel EXTREMELY passionate about people who defraud hard working Americans. Since it seems like there is some confusion about this, let me explain that interest rates are low when an economy is BAD becuase that is the only way to encourage people to try to get loans, encourage spending. Since 2008, due to the impolosion of the housing market due to millions of foreclosures and bankruptcies (yes T&J i’m looking at you) banking standards have been tightened so heavily so that honest hardworking americans who have done everyhting correctly still can’t get credit because banks were so burned from issuing these mortgages backed up by FAKE information that now they appraise homes at 60% of FMV so that you as a buyer are forced to try to come up with nearly 40% instead of the normal 20% due to the effects of these bad mortgages. Additionally, while credit card interest rates might not have gone up have you all not seen the MULTIPLE fees that banks have begun to tack on to credit cards, debit cards, checking/savings accounts? The reason they have done so is to attempt to generate revenue from hardworking Americans who DO pay their bills on time to make up for those that have defaulted and walked away from their debts. This isn’t a witchhunt on teresa and joe but I most CERTAINLY will hold them and others like themselves accountable for putting this country in the situation we were/are in. They deserve to be punished, ALL of them, and having children is NOT an excuse. They should have thought about that before defrauding people out of millions of dollars. If you think you aren’t paying the price for their behavior, I have a bridge to sell you. I apologize if I come across as snotty but this is something I feel very strongly about this.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        This is an intelligently written and passionate comment! I agree with you. I am a “kidder” by nature, but I get what you’re saying and do feel resentful at times and ask myself: “how come others don’t have to pay their bills?” Why can they borrow money, take trips, buy fancy things and then walk away from their debts scott free? I work right next to someone who has declared bankruptcy twice. But they have every electronic thing-a-ma-jig and other toys you can imagine, they travel twice a year, they bought their daughter a house they remodeled their house (that’s an ongoing thing), he golfs, they have water craft toys, and I sit right next to her and have to listen to all of their latest purchases,…in the meantime…stupid US (me and my hubs) we can’t go anywhere or buy anything or do anything….why??? because we pay our freaking bills. It sounds so self serving, but that’s how we’ve chosen to live this one life we’ve been given. We’ve had opportunities to commit fraud, but we have not and will not. We’re currently helping our children bay back their student loans; it’s our choice and I’m not complaining (I don’t mean to) but we’re helping our young adult children start their adult lives debt free is a priority to us.

        I get you, Obsessed, I do. But like here at work, I have to compartmentalize my feelings about people. I don’t hate people, I just have to overlook stuff and love the person but not love their actions. I guess I do that with the housewives, too. So, I love Tre’s kids. But I don’t exactly love, love,love…her or what she’s done and though I’m not vociferous about it, I do think justice should be done. Is she worse than all the other deadbeats, no she’s no worse, but she’s NO BETTER, either.

        With all that said, I can still side with her in an (unrelated to her indictment) argument she might be having with her little brother. I know, I know,…it’s weird. But somehow, in my brain, i can reconcile that.

        Thanks for getting my brain cells clicking and thinking. You’re better than this cup of coffee on my desk.

        • Obsessed with RH says:

          Lainey I APPLAUD you for working as hard as you do, paying your bills and albeit it it would be easier to commit fraud than pay your bills but I commend you. I also think you and your hubs are GREAT parents for trying to help your children start their lives with little to no debt. I definitely think that if I can help my children I certainly will, but at the same time I will not hand them anything! I even tell my dog that she needs to get a job because her medical bills are expensive!!

          As far as T&J, I agree that my feelings about them as characters on TV should be compartmentalized. I do lump them in the category of the people I described in my last post which is why I feel SO strongly about their getting their just desserts. Maybe it’s because I’m confronting and have been confronted with their arrogant and thoughtless frivolity of expenditures and all I can see when I look at them is the amount of $$ I have to now come up with in order to buy a home. For whatever reason I personally cannot separate their person from their actions hence the reason I truly loathe them to my core. I realize I probably need a hobby since I feel so strongly about them but this is how I feel about ALL people that have done what they did because I sit back and struggle and claw for everything I have while they flit around throwing their criminal actions in everyone’s face all the while acting like they can afford it all. One of these days I’ll be able to just watch them and laugh and separate their actions from their personas on TV…maybe when the verdicts finally come down. Until then, unfortunately all I see when I look at them is disgraceful people who seem to have no remorse for what they’ve done. I get particularly angry when people come to their defense or think they should be given lighter/easier treatment because of their children. They did what they did regardsless of the fact that they had children. If they should be given lighter sentences because of their children are people really saying that ALL people who have done what they did be given lighter sentences because they have kids? If that’s the case Il’l get knocked up today, have 5 kids and then defraud everyone so that I wouldn’t have to go to jail either.

          Sorry for the rant….this just hits hard to my core because my husband and I have put off getting a house and put off having children because we’ve tried to save and save so that we can buy a house and then have children when we’re financially able/sound to do so.

          Rant over. Sorry πŸ™‚

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Hey, that’s ok…no apologies necessary. I agree with you…and sometimes it’s nice to have someone validate the thoughts and words one takes the time to share. Thanks for the applause!!!! (bowing, bowing) and I applaud you!!! (take a bow) Well, that’s it, since they don’t hand out medals for the everyday people who do the everyday things and try, try, try to do the right thing day in and day out. The drones. There’s no DRONE AWARD. hahahaha!!! that would be a boring show, huh??? “And the Drone award for least likely to go to jail, goes to…..” LOL!!!

            • Obsessed with RH says:

              So true….I suppose no one would watch a show about people who work hard day in and day out and come home, eat dinner with their families and get up and do it all again the next day. Sad commentary on our world I suppose….

  19. windycitywondering2 says:

    Well Jeff, doing the recap by the various gangs of NJ is beyond brilliant. The play by play dialog can get cumbersome at times, but I do like a good one liner or malapropism when there is one to be had. Judging by the seasonal jumping between fall and winter, revised THs, filler scenes (Kathy and Caroline’s walk and the Gorgas playing on the driveway) and the name of who Melissa allegedly cheated with being bleeped – the storyline apparently took a turn back to the blame Teresa theme. And I wonder – are these mooks getting a second vacation because they didn’t wreak the retreat facility?

    • VV says:

      Do you think Andy Cohen was going to let Teresa off the hook that easily? Andy has had for the Giudice since Season 1 when Joe made a joke and some whiny gay producer complained to Andy about it. Andy Cohen can’t stand the Giudices and he will not rest until he completely humiliates them.

        Troy makes good money but it only takes a bad injury to end a career and they spend money like there’s no tomorrow.
        Those two sure make cute babies though.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          The money will dry up sooner than they think – the TV show won’t last much longer along with Troy’s football career. Then what? Where will the money come from to cloth, feed, shelter, educate and entertain these kids? I see a very big change in lifestyle for Miss Kim – just ask Sheree what happens when the money dries up. Troy can always go back to Montana and shoot their daily food. Just a thought . . .

          • chismosa says:

            I’m with you Husker

            Wonder if it’s more redheads ? They must run in the family

            And the grandparents have yet to see them right ?

        • LaineyLainey says:

          She earns a lil bit of change, too.

          • HuskerHuny says:

            What other income does Kim have other than the TV show? If Troy stays healthy, he maybe has less than five years to play until someone younger and better comes along. The TV show will not last as long as that. So saying that they (maybe) have a guaranteed income for the next five years, what will they do after that for income? They don’t look like they are socking any $$$ away for that rainy day, if you know what I mean. I only had three kids to support on two meager incomes, but I did it through sacrifice. Kim doesn’t seem the type to give up her designer clothes and lifestyle. Once she tasted the good life, I don’t think she will ever go back to the pre-Big Papa days.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Hi Husker, You’re a good egg, I’m not trying to make this personal. I know it’s hard to understand how they can keep having kids if most footballers don’t last on the field for very long. Wow, you have three kiddos, we stopped at two for financial reasons. I wanted more at the time, it was a source of stress in our marriage for a little while. But I got to stay home when they were little and there is no way I could have done that with more kids. I’m just not one of those people who predicts doom and gloom for this family. They have a lot going for them. Perhaps they will continue with Reality, I.DONT. KNOW. That’s the thing we really don’t know for sure how much they have, how much they will have, from where it will come, what they’ve invested in, do they get returns on their investments, interest… etc. I wish them well. When an announcement is made about their family, I want to be happy for them. They seem to be ok, and Kroy has a good head on his shoulders, they both love their kids a lot and will do right by them. MY OPINION. MY OPINION.

  21. AZGirl says:

    FameWhorga website has a ton of stuff on Mel. Also has an article on Al cheating on Caroline for the past 5 years with a gal named Jill. I feel sorry for Caroline that feels the need to make it look like they have a good marriage. They don’t. Its obvious and sad. Al has no respect for Caroline.

  22. I LOVE COFFEE says:

    Thanks Mel, Great Blog. You make me laugh. Laughing is good for the soul!!!

    I’m not going to be making people laugh with my opinions, Sorry.

    Don’t believe for one minute that M cheated on Joe with an ex boyfriend. T said herself M could leave Joe for a man with more money. I don’t think he has enough money for her. Besides I don’t think she would want to lose her being a “STAR” over an ex. Nope don’t believe it.

    I do believe T knew that man was going to confront M about being a stripper. I don’t know and don’t care if T planned it… but she knew
    T’s words keep gong through my head “I had nothing to do with it” just like “Ain’t I nice” and “I’m nice”
    Whatever T.
    I did believe T when she said M was jealous of her and tried do all the things T did. BUT……….. after all the fraud charges maybe T was jealous of M and trying to keep up with her brother and M. Joe and M aren’t in debt as much as T and J are and haven’t been charge-yet.

    I think Jacs told T’s secrets about T finding her husband with other women.

    T is delusional and in denial when it comes to her husband and the charges against her.

        I could be wrong. That’s what I remember.

        Does anyone else remember that?

        • melthehound says:

          I think Grannytel is Jac’s pal but you may be right. It isn’t unusual for people to pat the simple minded on the head though and let them run along believing what they want to believe. Jac SEEs a lot of things, I’m sure. All drug and alcohol (combined) induced.

          • cusi77 says:

            Yes, Coffee, I remember Jax saying at the Reunion T told her she found Juicy had a woman bent over his office desk… It was wrong in many levels:
            Real friends keep secrets that were confided to them when they were BFF. What Jax did, tells me more about Jax than T. (BTW, I don’t doubt for a minute Juicy is a cheater! T knows? Sure! Bu,t like old Italian school, she plays dumb).

            I do think that Gorgas, Wakiles and Lauritas are in hot a financial mess! Between the Country economy and the keeping up with the Jones, they will have a wake up call sooner or later, but they will.

            The one of T and J will teach them and some of us A LOT!

    Am I the only one who found it pathetic that Jacalope cannot be naked in front of her husband because of her stomach? Even though, I don’t like Jacalope her stomach wasn’t horrible. She had kids but trust me I still have a stomach and a butt from my babies and I never feel like my husband finds me unattractive. It is sad and says a lot about their relationship. Lots of insecurities going on there…hmmm….I wonder why???? Maybe a new story line for them?

    • chismosa says:

      Hi Bird— I feel she said it was about her being comfortable around other people – the bathing suits- for instance

      I don’t remember her saying it for Chris that much but I could be remembering wrong in my obsession with Melissa. OMG

      Cause that would be sad, I agree with you!

  27. Amalfi says:

    I cannot believe I am defending the Jacqueline, but if she wants to get a tummy tuck – do it. Yes, it is major surgery but so is knee surgery. The doctors who do them do nothing else but what they specialize in and if you get a good trusted doctor and are in good health, the risks (though they exist) do not outweigh the accrued benefits, in my opinion. Both will improve the quality of life (though one is more necessary than the other — no doubt vanity is different than a true physical need, but I am not judging what is right for other people.)

    Doing it in Beverly Hills is a bit over the top for someone as obsessed about her autistic child’s wellbeing as Jac claims to be though. I think on her true list of things to obsess about, autism might come in third.

    • Amalfi says:

      There is a tiny part of me that believes she competes with Ashlee. It is kind of sick if true but may explain their totally f-d up dynamic.

      It may be restive surgery, but it can help a person psychologically and that is important.

      I am looking for where I or anyone else says she couldn’t do it. What I question is her apparent constant need to escape her autistic kid. I question the need to fly from one coast to another to have it done.

You can see it in the faces of their children just how uncomfortable they are. Then Caroline asks Al for money to buy food? What? She does not have access to the bank account. Caroline this is 2013 not the 1800’s. Really. I hate when women allow themselves to be controlled emotionally and financially by the husband. it is sick. Then to see Caroline out with everyone in the bar alone with no Al. God. Someone slap this gal. Big judgment talker on everyone else’s marriage and she is trapped in a dependency cage and Al has the keys.

    • Amalfi says:

      Yes. AZGirl. I feel so sad for Caroline, that big giant dumb hypocrite.

      You can see, I am torn in my feelings for her. Sigh…

      Her life must be so lonely (which explains the unhealthy attachment to the two men in her life who DO need and love her) and to have to put on that big a show must take so much energy and suck all her happiness. 😦

    Hi Everyone.
    Before I go back and read Jeff’s re-cap, I wanted to say I’m
    sorry for being such a whiney baby last night.
    I have had a tough couple of months lately and have been
    very emotional. So, last night i was attending a party and
    someone said something very insulting to me (of course, the
    DH says I took it the wrong way—-OH NO I DIDN”T)
    anyway, I left the party(w/o the DH) , came home and sucked
    down 2 glasses of wine before I even put the TV on.
    recipe for disaster……duh duh duh
    So,,,, that depression was gonna come out somewhere………
    I’m sorry I took it out on youse guys.
    Forgive me. πŸ˜‰

      I hope you are feeling better about things today NJBev and don’t worry about having or not having your say around here…. about a TV show πŸ™‚

    • Laineylainey says:

      NJBev no need for apologies. You weren’t overly emo at all. You had a good point about some of the really mean names that we use here sometimes. It even makes me feel bad sometimes. When I read something really mean, I try to skip over it and hope the tone Changes in the next thread. It usually does. So back to you. I am glad you wrote again to share that you’ve been having a hard time… I am sorry about the last Two months being hard on you. I hope things are getting better. If you ever want to email me, please feel free

      NJBev I’m sorry you’ve been a little down. You know you can vent, rant & rave or cry on our virtual shoulders. I hope you’re feeling a bit better today. Big Hug to you Bev. We love you. πŸ™‚

    • AZGirl says:

      NJBev well all have moments like you had last night. You would not be normal if you did not “lose it” once in awhile. I might be the one tonight due to my plumber/handyman has taken ALL DAY to install……a water softner. A freaking water softner. No water and I am trying to make dinner.

    • NJBev says:

      Thanks so much everyone for understanding-
      I’m known for wearing my heart on my sleeve.
      You know, I didn’t even watch the damn show!
      (don’t have to, I’ll stick to the re-caps, thanks Jeff)

    Hi all. Haven’t read the comments so you all may know that Kim Z. Bierman is pregnant w/twins. Will she be like Heather Dubrow & say this is a surprise and they don’t have enough bedrooms for twins? πŸ˜‰
