Okay… Let’s have at this shitfest before I forget it. I said in the beginning I keep my commitments so this one and one more to go… Why it has taken so many is beyond me.. Has anyone seen a useful product advertised on this show during the commercial breaks? In other words who has wasted money to sponsor this crap? I would give you Closetfreak’s recap from last week but once again, she hasn’t done one. I think she’s done wasting the time with these people. I can’t say I blame her, these people are really pathetic. Every one of them on EVERY franchise (Yes, LisaV and the lemon woman too). So is Bravo along with Fanny Mandy.
I will give you a general recap but it’s going to be more of an outline.. An actual recap would involve more detail than I care to remember because they just piss me off and you end up with the rant I wrote last week. Besides, you are all better with the details than I am.
Once again, let’s pretend this all really happened and in the order we saw it. If you can choke past that one, we may get through this yet. Let’s review last week a little bit (don’t worry NMD 😉 )… Here is what we were to believe…. A mega star producing producer by the name of Johnny Wright contacted the Gorgas. If he did, his only reason was to tell them to stop it. She ‘sang’ for him in her own studio, should have been her comfort zone and she still couldn’t pull off a clean performance (of someone else’s song. Remember that). She kept blaming glitches in the sound equipment for her obvious failures. It is a poor craftsman that blames his tools. Just sayin… Johnny ‘invited’ them to his Florida compound so she can get singin and dancin lessons. I’ve watched this guy.. He doesn’t screw around unless he’s being paid to do so. I’d bet my left nut he isn’t dumping any money into MeGo and her ‘pop’ career.
Let’s skip ahead while we are talking about this. She’s in Florida (Where are her kids while these two asshats are doing all this traveling? In fact, I have the same question about all of them.). While in the sunshine state, she is to go on this radio show and sing this song that SHE wrote (remember what I said earlier about this) about her husband. Cough cough bullshit cough cough. This is what she tells the DJ at this radio show. Now, anyone who has been paying attention saw the unedited version of this performance a couple weeks ago. What was played on the show, was cleaned up so you didn’t hear the worse of it if that’s all you saw.. I’m just going to have to say, take my word for it… SHE SUCKS. That is actually a kind description. As long as Tarzan wants to keep dumping money into her delusions, god bless.. A fool and his money.. bless his heart. By the way… we are to belive the rest of these asshats heard this broadcast in NJ from Florida… Personally I don’t buy it. That would have to be a major transmitter unless we are talking about satellite radio here. Also.. we are to believe she squeezed 2 weeks of work in to less than 24 hours. Ya know, this was a weekend gig. I think the producer who told her two weeks was being VERY over optimistic. How about if we stop torturing ourselves with she who cannot sing, dance, or act… Don’t worry, there’s more.
Does anyone care about the Manzoids and their restaurant? I guess it’s part of the show so we’ll discuss it for a second… Littletown is finally opening.. I guess the carpenters finally finished their little stage where they can have inspiring readings and whatnot… That’s all I ever saw them working on… Well, opening night, free food free booze, so of course the place is packed. Maybe Albie can finally pop that nipple and climb down off of that milk crate and support himself for a change. I know Big Al is hoping for that so Momz will STFU about him. People have reported reviews of this place and they are mixed. 2.5-3 stars last I read… Not completely tanked but not someplace I would go out of my way for.. Besides, this is a franchise so they already have ‘name’… It’s like opening a Burger King and calling it your own. You may own it but it is the name that will get people there. That is my point. I don’t think I need to waste anymore time with this.. It’s open, they have a spinoff 😯 and that’s it.. Enjoy their new show ladies, you’ll be watching without me.
Shall we visit the Wakilies? Must we? I guess Joseph has had a birthday… What says reward your sons vile big mouth as in like father like son, more than a new car? We suffer these moments on every franchise. Put a kid who doesn’t know how to drive in a $40k+ vehicle and turn him or her loose. Hint Rich, Every kid has a first accident. Mine was when I was checking out a girl and rear ended a 1973 Impala with my 1973 Pinto.. An Impala was solid Detroit steel, the Pinto, was not. That’s all I’m saying. Enjoy the car Joseph..
Okay.. Let’s bust this bald elephant in the head that has been hanging in the room for the entire season… The bald elephant who insists on stirring shit behind the scenes on twitter without offering any proof of what he says. His goal? Face time for he and his wife, Penny. Let’s listen to what the Lurkitas have to say about him.. Apparently he’s been saying that they are faking their story line with Nicolas. Of course, no one can produce these ‘tweets’ from Johnny The Greek or Penny that even say that but we’ll go with that story line. I heard the Lurkitas talk some crap about people on twitter saying things, being garbage. Ummm, Jackalope, have another swig and look in the mirror when you’re saying that. Further that they do so much to give back to charity. That’s good because he’s also done a lot to steal from charity (Susan G Komen?). Let’s move on from that..
Somewhere in this mess Victoria Gotti is having lunch with Teresa… I think they were on Celebrity Apprentice together for one episode, so they must be BFFL, Right? Otherwise, Why? Why is she there? To talk to Teresa about the husband going away… If anyone is going to tell me that this woman was part of original production, I’m going to tell them they are full of it. I will apologize in advance for being so rude but this doesn’t even approach being eligible for the smell test. Is it just me or have all the blondes on this show left a trail of horse tears when they stole their tails all over New Jersey? Oh wait, I guess the one with the shrunken head lives in New York.. That makes it all the more odd, that she’s in New Jersey, on a Bravo show… Must be the mob connection. Did Tiny Manzo ever work for the Gotti crew?
What is the location for all the end of season fights on this show? Hmmm???? Poshe.. Kim D’s events.. Supposedly she’s opening a new shop (no she isn’t) and she has invited all the girls, including Penny.. You know, Penny owns a salon so she needs to be there. Back to the bald elephant in the room, only he isn’t. Penny is there though with that mop on top of her head. How come the women who spend all the money on these extensions, never take care of making sure it all blends. The absolute worse I ever saw was Adrienne Maloof.
First Jac confronts Penny about what the Greek has said about her son. I can’t say I blame her. Maybe he is autistic but I definitely believe it is her story line for being on the show and for her hubby to peddle his miracle murk. Anyway, Jac can’t get a straight answer from Medussa’s mouth. Well she can but which side of it should she listen to? As last week, the blonde Greek pins the blame for the information she and her husband spew on Teresa… This again? We already know this was re-edited so huge eye roll from me as once again, I call bullshit.
Next Teresa gets in on the act and I’m really hoping that she and Penny will come to blows so Teresa can snatch that weave off of her head. THAT would be television worth watching. If you’re going to show me a fight, at least make it real. Penny accuses Teresa of everything, including strippergate. At this point, I don’t give a shit who was behind that mess but the whole point is that for the last year, Teresa has wanted to take MeGo down. Here we go again. Need I remind you that we learned a couple weeks ago how MeGo convinced Bravo to give HER a paycheck. So cut your miss innocent BS act MeGo, we ain’t buying it. This is about where the episode ends, with previews of the bald elephant finally getting his camera time.
I still say this cheating rumor is Gorga generated. Paid for with promises of face time on the show. I don’t care what any of these people say, if they are There, they wanted to be there. Just that simple. If they are so against it, they didn’t have to sign releases. Without these rumors, the Gorgas would have been done on this show. BET THAT. It is no secret that Penny has wanted to be a housewife since the show started. We aren’t as stupid as this cast wants to think we are. The only thing worse than a liar, is a bad liar… I’m getting back to rant mode so I better cut this one short. See you next week when Crapfest 2013 FINALLY ends.
Comment shout out of the night… Just Wondering In Jersey – “My cat sat up and stared at the TV then shook her head.” (During MeGo’s caterwauling scene)
Jill…..No not THAT Jill… I hope you don’t mind but I thought your Brownstone story was pretty cool so I’m reposting it here with the main NJ blog.. If you send me some pics, I’ll post them. — MTH
So THE BROWNSTONE…
We were very late for the cocktail hour due to transportation trouble-the hotel was supposed to provide shuttle service but they fell short so most of us were left waiting for a ride from hotel to venue-I got there just as the cocktail hour was ending.
When we arrived Kevin went to the restroom while I waited on the lobby which was huge and and welcoming. I didn’t know which area our cocktail hour was in (OMG THE PLACE IS SO BIG) so I was looking for someone to tell me where to go. I asked the bartender in the main bar and he was a total jerk as were the rest of the bartenders I encountered for the rest of the night. With no idea where to go and no one to help me I turned around and who do I see…AL MANZO-now you know I’m not a fan of the Manzo family but this guy was sooooo nice and soooo personable. I said “hello Al, I’m here for the Brady wedding and I’m looking for the cocktail hour” he replied” come this sweetheart -the cocktail hour is almost over but I’ll make sure you get a drink and let’s see if here is anything to eat”. After Kevin joined us we went outside and it was beautiful-I wish we were there for the whole cocktail hour b/c I heard the food was outstanding.
We went into the main ballroom for the reception but I made a quick stop in the ladies rooms—it was GIGANTIC-and a bit outdated-not run down but old fashioned. No baskets with flip flops or Advil or first aid kits…( they did have a basket of flip flops right out side the reception room-American Eagle navy blue-all my nieces snagged a pair)
The bartenders in the reception room were rude and obnoxious-I hate that. Also they didn’t have Coors Light which just pisses me off…
Dinner was DELISH!!! Penne vodka cooked to perfection and filet mignon that was superb. I missed the cake (I think I was outside stalking/smoking) but they also had waffles and ice cream-delightful!!
While we were eating dinner I noticed someone going around to the tables-it was Tommy Manzo-he went to each guest and asked if they were ok and of they were enjoying themselves-I think I may have been the only person there who knew who he was!!!
