Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 1 / The Amazing Race

Real Housewives of New Jersey Reunion Part 1 by NMD

Andy starts off with Teresa’s legal issues.  First stupid question – were her castmates surprised by the charges?  They all look astonished he’d even ask, and give solid, neutral answers.

Next up is Caroline.  Andy says that her behavior was awful last year – how does she feel?  Wowza.  She says she deserves a pat on the back for recognizing it and changing her attitude.  Teresa says – it doesn’t matter how old you are (the look on Caro’s face was priceless) you can still see yourself on TV and change your ways.  Shockingly, Caro smiles and agrees.

A montage of Caro and the “experiment” in Hoboken.  She says she’s back in Franklin Lakes. Does anyone else think that she and Al separated for a while?  She’s asked about Al saying STFU to her.  She says – do I look like someone that would be abused?  and completely avoids the question.  Andy admits he’s scared of her.  Then she clarifies the cheating rumors.  She says that they are old (early 50s) and they’d be stupid to think the other didn’t cheat.  Anyone who’s been married that long is stupid to think their partner hasn’t cheated at some point.  Color me stupid then.  Then Andy follows up by asking what Al said when she asked him if he cheated.  She says Al introduces her to his baby mamas.  The look on Andy’s face – LOL.  Then she laughs and says no.  Again – ducking the question.  Who’s Jill Caroline?

Andy then softballs it by asking the other ladies about their husbands – well Joe and Joey.  I suppose no one cares if Richie cheats.  Melissa says she wouldn’t put up with Joey cheating.  Teresa says she doesn’t think Joe cheats.  Andy asks Jaq what she thinks and Jaq said she was out of line last reunion, and is not saying a word tonight.  She didn’t apologize – but at least she stopped talking.

Back to Caro – this time the question is about Dina.  She refuses to talk about it.  She says airing their dirty laundry completely ruined Tree and Melissa’s relationship.  Then Andy asks the obvious follow up – if she feels that way – does she feel Melissa made a mistake joining the show.  She says no.  Then she insults both of them by saying they are very similar, and lists a few examples.  Teresa sits there and doesn’t show a reaction, but Melissa says that bothers her – and they aren’t that similar.

And with that we’re at the first commercial – and it is crystal clear none of them are “going there” tonight.  Yeah!

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-reunion-part-one-02

Melissa is up next.  She’s asked about autotune and that leaked video.  She defends it saying it wasn’t real – there were no backup singers and there was a commercial in the background.  She explains that they pulled the video.  She says everyone assumes the housewives are autotuned – and trails off.  She looks pissed.  Then up next is her book.  She’s asked about her dad’s infidelity.  She claims the infidelity isn’t in the book – just his absence (it is).  Teresa said that it was strange hearing about it for the first time on TV.  Melissa says she never had that sort of relationship with Tree.  Tree says – it was weird.  Melissa says it was her decision to keep it private, it isn’t really anybody’s business.  Tree points out that she shared it with four  million people.  Melissa looks mad.  Then they bicker about mind numbing stuff like who they had with them on their covers – silly digs.

Now more on Melissa – she says Jan brought up allegations because she didn’t put Jan’s salon on the show.  She claims Jan told her to watch her back around Tree and Kim.  Jan was just trying to get attention – blah blah blah.  Melissa is just blowing off all the questions with excuses.  Andy manages to get the ladies bickering about leaking stories to the press.  Teresa said she heard a rumor that is Melissa has a deal with Radaronline to leak stuff to them so that they don’t pick up stories about her. (Teresa heard it from a blogger.)  She points out the video story didn’t make it to Radaronline.  They go back and forth about not assuming things  – and asking each other instead.  I’m getting bored.  Caroline puts up her hand and says “who cares.”  And with that – another commercial.  Phew.  No knockout blows thrown yet.

A question for Kathy about the cannolis.  I had forgotten she was there.  25 minutes without a peep.  They show a montage – ending with the sign falling down.  As it ends, Jaq says – “oh was that Kathy’s scene – I wasn’t paying attention.”  Kathy looks mad.  Andy has to explain that Jaq was joking.  Oh vey.  Kathy says something  – I wasn’t paying attention.  Teresa is asked about the “they are edible” comment and says she just answered a question that was asked.  Now on to Richie and his disgusting behavior on twitter.  Of course she defends it.  End of Kathy’s segment.

Jacqueline is asked about Ashlee moving back home.  She confirms this.  Now on to the Jaq montage.  Back to the reunion and she and Caroline are crying a little.  Andy asked about people saying Jaq is exploiting Nick.  She says she’s raising awareness.  Melissa jumps in to talk about all the mean people there are in the world.  (She must be talking about Richie and her sisters.)  Jaq is outed as the housewife with the most plastic surgeries.  Andy asks if Dina has reached out since the diagnosis.  Jaq looks at Caro before she dodges the answer.  That was strange.

Back from the commercial – and both Joes are on the couches.

Andy asks about selling the house.  Melissa says they did well.  When she’s asked about why they moved when they’ve made up with Teresa, she says that’s not the only reason they were moving – they wanted to move back to Franklin Lakes.  She can’t keep her stories straight.  Now we’re treated to a montage about their relationship.  Joe  is staring off to the side through the whole segment.

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-reunion-part-one-06

Melissa says that Teresa should have flipped a table when people were telling her that Melissa was giving someone a blow job in the parking lot.  Teresa bring up how Melissa’s sisters trash her on twitter.  Melissa says she can’t control them – yet Teresa is supposed to control Kim and Penny.  Huh?

Teresa says they are trying to get together.  Melissa says she tried – and called five times.  Apparently they didn’t get together even once in the summer.  Teresa says that Joey gets angry – and she doesn’t like getting together with her.  Joey says he’s accused of being a maniac – and Teresa says she isn’t trying to take him down.  Joe is still staring off into space.

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-reunion-part-one-03

Rosie comes in.  Joe breaks into a HUGE smile.  Rosie is asked about her rage issues.  Teresa defends her – and says she gets it out of her system – like Teresa does.  Andy calls her on that and says she holds grudges.  She says she’s learned not to.  He says – when –in the last half hour – heh.  She tilts her head and says “come on.”  End of segment.

Montage of Rosie and Joe happy time, ending with the eggs segment.  Apparently they were drunk.  That explains it.  Everyone agrees they are a great couple, and Joe smiles and says they always get along great.  Joe is asked how come he gets along with Rosie when he hates gay people.  Joe and Tree then start talking about being friends with a gay couple, Tree hangs out with the girl and Joe hang out with boy.  Andy is completely confused.  Then they have to defend calling a gay man a girl.  Finally Rosie gets them to shut up – thankfully.  Oh – Joe says he made one little remark and Danielle blew it out of proportion.  Revisionist history –but whatever.  It’s clear he loves Rosie.   Sometimes all this political correctness just gets to me.

Funny between commercial break with Joe’s stomach rumbling, and he asks to go to the bathroom.  Melissa’s face is all scrunched up.  Instead of letting him go – they ask for immodium.  He chugs it.  Cut to sounds of his stomach rumbling. Give the man a potty break.

Rosie is asked about the retreat.  As she explains why she helped Tree set it up, Tree is nodding.  It’s clear that Tree and Rosie are in a good place by their body language.  A montage of the “black tar” fight.  “He’s biting my nuts,” gets me every time.  Melissa and Joey are shown saying awful things – such as “I’m not a scumbag like him going to f**ing jail.”  Joey says it was the best thing that ever happened – it made him realize that he loved the guy.  Andy asks the question we all want to know – did he bite Joe in the nuts.  Joey admits to squeezing them.  Teresa asks why it had to get to physical violence.  Rosie jumps in and says it had to happen that way.  Teresa explains – but god forbid one of them hits their head.  True that – just ask Johnny the Greek.  Remember the charges hadn’t been dropped at this time.

Speaking of squeezing – Kathy is asked about the pig of her husband squeezing Rosie’s breasts.  She defends him.  Pig.  Joey is asked about the hair spray.  Joey says he know about if from gay men.  Andy says – don’t put that on me.

Teresa is asked about calling Joey pussy whipped, and how is that different from him calling her scum.  She apologizes and asks for an apology.  He says he doesn’t need to apologize because they are brother and sister – huh? Joe is staring off into space again.  Probably worried about his stomach.

real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-5-reunion-part-one-10

More bickering between Teresa and Melissa.  Blah blah blah.  Melissa bring up the 30 year old pop star dig.  Teresa claims it’s a compliment.  It wasn’t.   Teresa is asked about the threat in her blog – that Melissa is very very lucky that Teresa is keeping quiet about what she knows.  Melissa asks if Tree has something on her.  She claims she doesn’t  – but just said that.  Melissa says – then you lied.  Teresa says – but I didn’t say anything.  (Take not of this – Teresa’s lies will come back again).  Rosie jumps in and tells them to be done with it.

Andy asks Joey why he forgave Teresa in the end.  Joey says he knows her – knows when she’s lying, knows when she’s in a weird place.  But that he knew she was being honest when she started crying so he gave her a hug.  But it’s clear that he thinks she’s still out trying to hurt Melissa – and can barely look at her.  At least he’s not faking it like the rest of them.

Montage of the final fight.  Kathy calling the family of her daughter’s best friend and boyfriend roaches is priceless.  They end with Tree saying it’s so f**d up.  Andy echos that.  Andy asks why Tree is still friends with Kim D.  Tree says they are all friends with her.  Tree says “who is this girl Penny?”  Tree says that Penny played all of us – she tried to put it on me (I knew Penny was a liar).  Melissa asked if Teresa encouraged them (look to your left Melissa).  Wait – Penny is a liar so she’s probably lying about that as well.  Anyway – on and on and on with the Penny thing – trying to blame Teresa for what Penny did.  Teresa lays it all out for them – that Penny and Johnny were tweeting crap for two years – didn’t get anywhere with Melissa and Joey – so they turned on Teresa for their 15 minutes.  Teresa’s reaction pretty much makes everything Penny has been claiming about the editing a lie.  I suspected that.  Obviously they were lying because they hated Joey for the fight – – but wait – Teresa lies too – and so does Joey – so it’s hard to figure out the truth with all these liars.  I give up.

Now Andy introduces Dr. V.  Teresa explains that Dr V made her understand that it’s okay to say sorry – that she wouldn’t be blamed for everything.  Andy asks Joey what he thinks Teresa was saying sorry for – and he says everything – thereby confirming that she was right to be afraid.  They talk about confronting Penny – which was apparently a turning point.  Not really because of the messed up timing.   Now Dr. V. says she’s worried about Joey’s anger.  He needs special therapy.  He is really defensive and says he’s been labeled that way.  NO JOEY – you need help.  He says he doesn’t need help.  He says he’s fine.  She calls Melissa out for her behavior getting angry at Joey.  Melissa gets really defensive.  Teresa looks comfortable.  Andy points out the pattern of violence.  Joey turns to Rosie and says “these people think I’m a f**ing maniac.”  Yup.  We all do.  Rosie is probably about the only one who doesn’t think that.

Dr. V. says she wants to hear from the group.

Caroline goes first.  She says she wants truth from them – that Melissa and Teresa haven’t shown truth – or vulnerability.  Teresa says she’s shown that this season.  Teresa is defensive.  She doesn’t get what Caroline means – and wants it explained.  Now Caroline calls Teresa out on her blog about saying that Caroline and Al were fighting the entire time.  She asks Teresa why she said that?  Teresa said she heard it.  Caroline says it’s a lie – and instead of addressing what was bothering Teresa – Teresa decided to brand Caroline with a lie.  Wowza – I knew Teresa was pissed when she wrote that blog and it would end up biting her in the butt.  It wasn’t about lifting the horse’s leg.  It was NEVER about that horse’s leg.  In real time – that blog was written about a day before they shot the reunion.  Dr. V. helps Teresa say that it was shitty of her to say that about Caroline.

Now Melissa jumps in and says to Caroline that does she understand why it hurts her to hear that Caroline says that she and Teresa are the same person, because she reacted to that situation in a very different way.  Caroline agrees that Melissa would never have lashed out and lied like Teresa did.  Teresa gets defensive again, and now Kathy yells at her about how she shouldn’t react right away and lash out.  I think Rosie is yelling too.  To Teresa’s credit, she just takes it – but she basically admitted she made up that thing about Al and Caroline just to get back at them.

So to recap – Andy was SHUT DOWN through most of the reunion and found himself unable to get a rise out of anyone.  Teresa was outed as a blatant liar – which does not bode well for her upcoming trial.  Joey sees nothing wrong with his out of control temper.  Melissa looks like she’s done with everyone – including Joey.  Jacqueline might have been on  something – she was way too happy and calm.  Kathy who?  Penny and Johnny are liars – about something – I’m just not sure what.  And Caroline behaved relatively well – for Caroline.

I think this was the best reunion of the bunch.  Let’s hope next week continues to deliver.

The Amazing Race 23 – Zip It, Bingo

The cast

Welcome back folks. I hope this finds you all well after last night’s crapfest. I still can’t believe we watch that garbage but I can tell you nothing has changed for me with those horse’s asses.. Oh, Wait a minute, Wrong show.. Pardon, my bad, I’m recapping The Amazing Race here not, Crapfest 2013 (though I’ll say it was cool hearing our Plainviewsue’s name on WWHL 🙂 ).

Here we go with the right show. The list above shows the cast and as we progress, the eliminated team’s names, will be struck out. Last week it was the father daughter team due in part to the fact that someone, couldn’t read instructions. That same mistake cost the ER doctors the first place finish as well as the coveted Express Passes.

tar1This leg begins at 2:23am when the teams begin to leave in the order they arrived at the pit stop. They are to find their way to this boat where they will meet up with the guy who will point them to their first clue. The annoying divorced couple leaves first, followed by the ER doctors (I heard they are from another show somewhere and not virgin reality show people). The next team to leave is the Bingo Queens.. NFL leaves next as Divorced gets to the boat. Guess what kiddies, This is another of those equalizing starts where they all have to wait for the guy they are suppose to meet up with. Who didn’t see that coming? Raise your hand… Remember I said (if you read it) in the last recap that it rarely matters who gets to the finish mat after the first ones and before the last ones, and in what order? This is why. They have to wait for the officer of the day until 7:15am.. Let’s get the rest of the teams there so y0u have some idea how they finished the last leg. MLB wives leave next followed by the Ice girls. They are followed by their race husbands, the Afghanimals.. ER meets up with divorced and starts asking them what they are going to do with the extra express pass. ER Nicole turns 40 today.. It’s her birthday and she wants a gift- wink wink.. Of course Marie couldn’t care less. Dating is next to leave followed by Okies and finally, the hippies.

So, they are all there to meet the officer of the day and Marie is dictating how everyone hastar2 to line up to get the next clue. I would have thrown her into the water and I suspect before this race ended, somebody does. She clearly thought that everyone should follow her rules but when 7:15 came, the race was on.. Did she forget she was in a race and does she really think she gets to dictate how it should be run? I can’t stand this woman already. Her nutless ex husband isn’t much higher on my scale. Anyway, shocker of shockers, they all get to the clue at the same time. What they have to do is find a famous phrase given the clue they were given, and repeat it, in Spanish, to the officer of the day. The phrase is “Charge The Ship, Men”.. Ice girls and Hippies find some guy on the street that tells them what they are looking for… Hippies get to the OoTD first and tell him, he hands them the next clue.. Where is Marie with her I’m going to be first BS? Who knows, who cares. The clue they are given tells them to go to the Irlanda Salt Mine and look for the next clue..

tar3The hippies are out of there first followed by the Ice girls.. (I’m liking these two teams). The clue they find at the salt mine is a detour. Mining or Brining. Brining requires them to dump enough salt into a tub of water so that they can both float and read the local paper. When they do that, they get their next clue (I suspect, in the paper).. Somehow I don’t think this is easy as it may sound. Mining requires them to break apart tar4salt boulders to find a hidden clue.  First though, they have to ride bikes across the flats to get to the salt mine. Hippies and NHL (the Ice Girls) are the first to arrive and both chose Mining. ER gets there next and they choose Brining. What could be better than a relaxing salt bath on your birthday? NFL understands it’s going to take a lot of salt to make their combined 500+ pounds float so they also chose mining. Poor Bingo queens are stuck with a cab driver who doesn’t know where he’s going. Can’t find the salt mine. Where is Divorced? Who knows, Who cares? Afghanimals have also arrived and chose mining. Queens stop for directions and for now, we are to believe that the cabbie gets it.

The bike ride to this mine is apparently pretty brutal for some. NHL, ER, and Dating are on their way but ER Nicole is struggling. She can’t ride a mountain bike. Dating Amy struggled on the bike a little as well but she didn’t fall off like Nicole did. NFL made pretty short work of the bike ride but all 3 teams do get to where they are going. When they get to the mining site, NFL, the others get nervous because they can probably just bit through the rocks. This is hard physical labor and the ice girls are having trouble with it so they decide to switch to brining. I think Dating chose that one as well. Still no Divorced couple.. What happened? Did she try and tell the cab driver how to do his job and he told them to get out tar5and walk? I sure hope so.  The bags of salt that ER, Dating, and Ice Girls must carry weigh 60 pounds each.. Over at the mine, NFL is just picking up the boulders and smashing them on the ground.. Hippies manage to break open the one they were working on and are the first to get the clue. Bingo queens are hopelessly lost as I don’t think their driver still has a clue.  The clue in the rock tells them to go back to where they started the day and get on a bus for a 1000 mile ride to Santiago, Chile, the capitol. When they get there, they have to get to Plaza De Amas to find the next clue (betting it’s a roadblock)

Finally, Baseball, Okies, and (dammit) Divorced gets to the clue box that tells them what they will be doing next. Okies chose brining and so did Divorced.

The people who chose Brining have to do it in their bathing suits or so I thought. Some are running around barefoot. Divorced shows up and I have to admit, this woman is a bit of an animal when it comes to carrying and tossing those 60 pound bags of salt. Baseball wives also chose that task. Afghanimals and NHL find their clues in their rocks and are on their way back to their taxi cabs when the queens Finally arrive. It doesn’t look good for these two especially the heavy set one (don’t know which is which) is in for a long ride to that salt mine. They chose to do the mining. I don’t think this is going to end well for them.

Hippies get to the bus station to purchase their tickets and it is a 24 hour ride to Santiago on a bus that leaves at 1:30pm.. Is it the only one? I don’t know yet. Back at the mines, Marie hasn’t figured out that this mixture of salt water has to be stirred. She’s once again bitching at her ex and Ice Girls have heard enough of her mouth (so have I). Meanwhile, Dating finishes this task first followed by Divorced (dammit) followed by the ice girls. Meanwhile back on the trail to the mine, fat dude, is having a conniption because his partner is asking if he’s okay. You see even talking gets this guy winded. Hippies, Afghan, and NHL are all at the bus station.

Meanwhile, Baseball wives are struggling, again, with this task. Why did they sign up to do this? They seem way too pampered to take something like this on. The queens Finally get done with the bike ride and they did choose mining. Okies get done with the brining task and are on their way. Dating is at the bus station and they have their tickets for the 1:30 bus. Guess what kids? They got the last one…

Go ahead.. Laugh.. I’ll wait because the next ones to ask, were the divorced couple… Take THAT Marie.. There is a 2pm buss that is a 28 hour ride.. The first 5 teams got the express, the second 4 got the coach treatment. Lot’s of stops. Notice I said 4.. Eventually the queens did show up and tried to book another bus. Now I heard the guy say that it leaves at 4pm. The second bus, remember gets in at 6pm in Santiago. This pair of dumbasses thought the guy said their bus gets in at 4pm to Santiago. Now both the first two buses were on time to leave, without this pair of morons. They go to ask the ticket agent what’s up and learn that their bus won’t leave for 3 hours. Yep, he said 3 hours. Somebody cannot do their arithmetic. I think they got the new guy at the ticket window because Thier bus, doesn’t arrive until 10pm the following evening….. Dumbasses… It isn’t over til it’s over though. Notice each bus is a progressively longer trip.. This third bus will take 30 hours.. IF it’s on time. It is probably pulled by a team of donkeys and is actually the farm animal transportation. They do manage to get a somewhat earlier bus.

Let’s get to Santiago. We are shown bus number one arrived in Santiago and the 5 team race is on. They get to the Plaza De Amas and find the clue box. Yep, it’s a roadblock. Who’s got the knack, to pack. What they have to do is at a portable shoe shine stand, shine shoes, then pack up this stand which is a bit of a puzzle, then push it 6 blocks to the central depot storage area where they will get their next clue.

I can’t catch a good picture of these stands so you will have to watch if you want to see them. Afghan notes that the clue says to take everything that was there. Will this come into play? We’ll see. It looks like a giant CF to pack this cart and roll it along the sidewalk. Meanwhile, on the 2nd bus, Baseball wives are talking to divorced Tim and it turns out, he played minor league baseball with one of their husbands. Groan… The two teams form an alliance and Marie says she wants to give them the express pass (but doesn’t, yet).

Afghan is the first to arrive at the storage depot but guess what kids.. His cart isn’t packed righ. He just threw it all on their and the check in guy says go do it right and then come back. This ‘puzzle’ is going to be someone’s undoing.. Lets not forget, this is daylight, and queens may not be there until it’s dark. Who gets their shoes shined in the night time? NFL had it right the first time, Afghan is sent on his way, ER Nicole appears to be lost.

tar6The next clue tells them to go to Cascada de las Animas animal reserve. It’s the pit stop kiddies.

The first 5 teams are on the way and Afghan gets there first. Just one problem. They didn’t give the cab driver enough money so they have to pay him off first. Phil sends them back to do that. NFL is the second to get to the mat for the pit stop, giving them first place because the first two idiots didn’t pay their bill. They won a trip..  Congrats guys. Meanwhile, on that third bus, the queens say that they are running the race, it isn’t running them. Yeah, okay fellas, we’ll go with that. Afghan checkd in again at the mat after paying the driver the additional 10,000 pecos owed, Phil asks what happened and these two cry babies start bickering. ANBGTFT. Next.. Hippies check in followed by ER and then Divorced.

Now it’s night time and the 2nd bus arrives in Santiago.. Not too far behind that one the third bus arrives. The others are already shining shoes.. This is a race not to be last. Bingo caught up to the other teams and Marie just can’t stand it.. I’m loving it because not only does she have a crap attitude, she cannot shine shoes to her customer’s satisfaction. Now, there were specific Marked shoe shine stands they were supposed to use with waiting customers which answers my earlier question. As Mr IGetWindedWhenITalk is looking for a stand, he picks any old one. Not the right one he is suppose to use but one that belongs to some local who does this for his job. Got that? This dumbass took some guy’s livelihood for this game. I just can’t.. The other 4 teams finish and are on their way to the storage depot, yes, Marie too. Baseball wife who thinks Marie is going to give her an express pass, leaves the carpet behind that the stand rests on… “please don’t forget anything”.. Good gawsh are these people ever stupid. I cannot believe it.. That guy let the queen take his shoe shine stand to finish this part of the leg. He even packed it for him… Barring some of the stupidest shit luck ever on this game, The Bingo queens have GOT to be Done.

So, who is out? Well, let’s get this out of the way first. (I’m trying real hard here) Marie has it in her skull that she gets to tell others how to run the race, who to talk to and not to talk to. None of the teams had their carts packed right and had to fix something. Okies and Ice girls get out of their first and that’s the order they checked in. Meanwhile Bingo Rowan shows up with the guy he hijacked to check in and he has to go back and do the whole thing over with the proper cart. While he was pleading with his kidnap victim not to leave, Marie is once again running her pie hole (and I am sure the stench was horrendous), Rowan tells guy not to listen to her because she is Diablo. Baseball has to go back for her carpet but she wants that express pass and asks for it. She is refused. Nothing to offer Diablo for it. In Diablo’s cab, she is, OMG, offended by being called the devil. Her Ex agrees with that sentiment. Her response to Rowan is today’s title, Zip It, Bingo.

Because Rowan had to do the whole thing over, by himself this time (has he ever seen this game?) And Baseball wife had to find where she left her rug, it was a close heat to not be last. Divorced checked in at number 8. Baseball wives checked in at number 9. I could have saved a whole bunch of time here because, the Bingo Queens have been eliminated. Due to the mistakes of talkingmakesmewinded, Rowan.

That’s all folks, See you next week. MTH.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I think its going to be a rainy day but its still in the 70s which I.am loving.
    I enjoyed everyone’s comments during the NJ Crapfest Reunion. I don’t care what they say about them “healing” or “we’re in a better place”, they still hate one another. I hope they can live w/destroying their families to be on tv.
    You all have a great day.

    • VV says:

      Good Morning Powell!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Good Morning, Powellypooh!! good morning, everyone!! I’m wearing close toed shoes for the first time since last winter. It was a little nippy this morning (for Austin).

    • chismosa says:

      I agree Powell. And I think the Don is happy Don because she did what we said last year: stayed on the show to get her stupid spinoff for her toddlers and not have to come back to deal with Teresa

      She’s done so she’s happy !

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Hi PowellI Hoper you’re well. Were you able to return to work today. My furloughed co-workers returned today. Now more of us are working for free/on an IOU (until a CR or budget is signed).

    • melthehound says:

      Who wrote this and WTF does pyssing me off mean? I realize these people are all blithering idiots but Come On….

      • VV says:

        The original tweet was from Rosie. She tweeted Tre: “Hey Teresa_Giudice ur pathetic and ur pyssing me off !!” Rosie was pissed at Tre for retweeting the Realityrow story about Victoria’s friend. Richie then retweeted and added ” These people came from the likes of you!”

        They can spin all they want but how can they not know JTG is the uncle of Victoria’s best friend and boyfriend.

        • It’s funny that everyone want to blame someone else for Johnny the Greek. Why not just blame Johnny. I think Teresa nailed it on the reunion. It’s simple – they wanted their 15 minutes and will leech on to anyone to do it. I doubt the niece has much to do with it – but it was Johnny that was tweeting about his “niece” and not saying anything because of her friendship with the Wakiles before the story broke. He’s the pathetic one.

          These retweets of Teresa’s must be from her new PR team. I don’t like them. I liked the Teresa who ignored the nonsense swirling around her better.

          • VV says:

            I think Teresa was mad at the fact that Kathy and Richie kept saying they didn’t know who Penny and JTG were. This is a flat out lie because of the facts stated by the Realityrow article.
            According to Heather, Teresa just found out last night about the connection.

              I don’t know my bf’s uncle and wife. Never met them, don’t know them. Couldn’t pick them out in a lineup. And, my mother sure as hell doesn’t know them. Because the Wakile’s daughter is friends with someone doesn’t mean they know his/her extended family. They don’t even have the last name.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                That might well be,but you are ‘normal’ person and not one of these reality show attention whores.

                In this case Kathy was lying out her ass.

                Penny and JTG had been circling their wagons around the RH franchise since before the Posh fashion show and be the subject of many conversations and feuds on twitter. It would be ridiculous to think that at some point her daughter’s boyfriend wouldn’t have said “That’s my Uncle” or that her daughters BBF wouldn’t have said the same thing.

                Kathy hid the connection because she wanted to distance herself from them …when in reality she and her husband called them..and her husband and Joey went to JTG’s place of business.

                Granted, I also think that the connection wasn’t something that JTG or Penny also wanted known or promoted as it seems like he is now worried about the ‘guilt by association’ back lash his niece and nephew might get.

          • Rebecca says:

            I disagree with you about the Teresa vs Penny story. Teresa watched the show like anyone else and was shown the very cut-up edition of what Penny said. Of course she can say THAT was all lies. Penny’s explanation came after the reunion was shot, so how would Teresa know? I doubt very much Teresa even knows about it.

            I totally believe Penny’s version. I totally believe there are tons of ladies out there with dirt on Melissa. Now I totally believe Kathy was feeding some of this info herself in her desperation to be “important” to someone, anyone.

          • Powell says:

            I don’t like the RTs from Tre/PR either. She doesn’t need to fight back on Twitter. Remember. Tweets NEVER disappear, even if you delete them.

        • OK, not trying to be devil’s advocate, but because some girl’s uncle is shady doesn’t mean the girl is a bad egg! I know plenty of people who have ridiculous relatives because there is at least one in every family. (We have more than one…like we won the lottery in hell a couple times!) When kids pick friends they have no idea what the whole picture is like (that’s why they are not assholes yet!)

    • Powell says:

      See what I mean. They are idiots.

    • plainviewsue says:

      So much for Rosie and Teresa ending up in a good place. Please. I was very surprised that Teresa tweeted that blog, cos she doesn’t normally do that. The rest of them do, especially Melissa and her sisters.

      I wish she didn’t, cos now it’s ugly again. So much for Rosie saying on WWHL to me that she is calls out everyone! No Rosie you don’t.

      • Rebecca says:

        So, Rosie gets to blow up on twitter for a tweet that has nothing to do with her, about a tweet that …. ah screw it. Why bother.

  2. melthehound says:

    You threw my toys out of the car<— was the most hilarious thing he's ever said. I finally know what he's so pissed about. It has nothing to do with his wife, his big sister threw his Toys out of the window and on to the street. I'll bet that's where "go cry to your mama" came from, from Pop Gorga… He is still crying about it.

    • VV says:

      We laugh but Joey still hasn’t recovered from that traumatizing experience.

    • Powell says:

      MTH when he said that I was like “what?”. He’s carried that around. I can’t get that that is what he’s remembered from being a five yr old. It’s almost like he’s still there in the back seat crying over his toy being thrown out of the moving car by his sister.

      • melthehound says:

        I could understand if she threw Him out of the car. Buy a new toy, build a bridge, and get the phuck over it.

        • T-Rex says:

          Certainly goes to show that Melissa is probably only with JoeNeanderthal for the money, IMO. Who could stand to be married to a three-year old, with supreme anger management issues, and also doesn’t think it’s wrong to basically rape his wife on occasion. That JoeNeanderthal just gives me the heebie jeebies.

          • Powell says:

            T-Rex I basically said the same thing the other day that Mel takes Joey’s treatment to live the life she’s always wanted. Never mind her self-respect. Just as long as she can live in a big house & shop whenever she wants.

  3. Powell says:

    “Melissa asks Tree if she has something on her.” Why would Mel be so concerned if Tre had something on her when she continues to claim she’s done, nothing, has nothing to hide? Because she does have something she’s hiding from Joey. I don’t like Melissa….. I lay all the family problems at Mel & Joey’s door.

    • Because Tree wrote it in her blog. Tree wrote something like Mel was lucky she wasn’t saying anything about what she know – so Mel was trying to point out that the threat/lie. I don’t think you can turn this one on Mel. Teresa admitted she lied twice on the episode – flat out admitted it.

      • Rebecca says:

        Did she actually say she had something on Melissa? No. Maybe it was something on the Gorgas finances. Those two sure had a lot to say about the Guidice’s money problems.

      • Powell says:

        I get what Tre did but my point is that Mel keeps saying she has nothing to hide so if that’s true why is she asking Tre what does she have on her? It’s obvious to me that there is something that she doesn’t want out even though she continues to deny it. Those words “what do you have on me” or however she said it denotes guilt. If there is something why doesn’t Joey know what it is so the back & forth of Tre is spreading this, Tre is spreading that is over?

        • kit9 says:

          Melissa was challenging her to spill it. And, she couldn’t/wouldn’t. It was Napalm all over again. Her point was Teresa was lying. Again.

      • chismosa says:

        I’m confused as to Tre’s lying or whatever about Caroline fighting in Arizona. I thought this DID happen? Why then did Tre back down. Why not say – “well I was mad at you, but I did not lie- you two WERE fighting ??”

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I personally think she couldn’t be arsed enough to argue with Caroline over it. My guess that that Caroline and Al probably locked themselves in their room for a bit having an argument and it might have held up ‘production’ for a bit. (IMO Al and Joe are very much the same in regards to show, they just don’t give a phuck. They aren’t going to put up any pretense for the sake of the show) .

          If I was Teresa, I would probably just concede too as we as viewers already know that Caroline and Al argue.

        • VV says:

          That’s what I thought Tre said. She confirmed the two were fighting and Caroline didn’t deny it immediately. Bravo was clever ( to protect Carolina ) that right after commercial, they played the same segment again but CUT it out when Teresa said that as to imply that Tre was lying.

          Don’t forget this reunion took several hours to film, we only see the edited Bravo version.

          • chismosa says:

            Yup. Protect Albies mommy. I guess.

            Thanks RR and VV

          • kit9 says:

            Teresa didn’t confirm anything. In fact, Teresa, in a departure from her blog, backpedlled and said that it was just something she’d ‘heard’, when in her blog she states it as a fact. She admitted that she never saw Caroline and Al fighting.

            • Rebecca says:

              rabble is probably right. If production was held up and somebody behind the scenes said that Albert and Caroline were fighting again, yes Teresa heard that they were fighting the whole time. They can never say what came from producers and what did not. Have you ever heard anyone admitting something they were told by production off camera? That’s the whole premise of this bs show.

              • mm in oc says:

                That’s exactly how I intrepreted it. Production told Teresa about the fighting. Caroline is the biggest obfusgator on the show – she’s rarely speaks the whole truth on any given issue.

                I don’t think Teresa lied on any of this stuff. I think she’s trying to smooth things over versus get ugly like last year.

                It’s also obvious that the reunion has been edited to death during these types of scenes. Another great job by Bravo. Are they ever going to get rid of Andy? I’d prefer they bring on Perez Hilton, as you know he’ll beat everyone up equally.

      • Dixie says:

        I think Teresa does have something on Melissa but has made the choice for her family to let it go.

        • ITA -Teresa won’t talk about “family issues” on tv….they know this and bank on it! They can go after her making her look less than honest because she refuses to air the dirty laundry!

    • VV says:

      I think Teresa does have something on her and Mel knew Tre was not going to say anything for the sake of peace in the family. Melissa calculates everything. She asked because she knew Tre was not going to say anything to me is that plain and simple.
      The award on deflecting questions last night goes to Melissa. Joey was a close second. They deflected more questions than they answered.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Teresa and Joe know all about how Melissa and Joey really met.

        • VV says:

          I think so too. I think Teresa chose the high road with her answer. Melissa cleverly asked the question knowing Teresa would kept quiet therefore making Teresa look like a liar ( in this particular case ) Mel is very crafty and manipulative. The fact she didn’t go bunkers and looked at Joey and both didn’t go with everything after Teresa when Tre denied, proved Mel knew what she was doing by asking. IMO.

        • They met in adjoining strip clubs while doing a dueling strip tease for charity???
          No? oh well, that’s my guess.

      • chismosa says:

        Don deflected a lot too 👊👊

  4. T-Rex says:

    Of course I didn’t watch the Reunion, after reading about Teresa lying, maybe this is the reason they did that god-awful interview on WWHL, to try and redeem themselves? If so, it was an EPIC.FAIL and I think the Reunion and the Interview will not be good for their case.

    In addition, uhm Don Caro, I have been married for 22 years, and been with Mr T-Rex for a total of 24 years, he is in his 50’s and neither of us has EVER cheated on one another! I will not assume my husband has cheated, because he knows if he did, it’s a deal-breaker and he knows that if he did something so stupid, he will have to play the “are my clothes laying in the yard, on fire or not”. So basically Al cheats, has done so for years, and she just “chooses” to ignore it. I think also that LyingCriminalOaf(allegedly) has cheated, and Teresa also does the “head in the sand” regarding the issue. Her motto, if she doesn’t actually “catch” or “see” him with another woman it didn’t happen.

    • chismosa says:

      👏👏yup
      Agreed.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      T-Rex you, me and a lot of women don’t worry about our husbands cheating. However, there are a lot more women than you’d think who suspect or know their husbands cheat and put up with it. Not the life some of us would choose, but it’s their lives not mine.
      AMEN to 22 years of marriage!

      • T-Rex says:

        You know what, I don’t know very many women or men that suspect their spouse of cheating, but maybe that’s because I don’t hang around folks like that. The ones I do know of, are from my high school reunion folks, and the two couples that I know, both have cheated on each other previously, and no one can figure out why they are still together. They are completely miserable. My parents had a friend that cheated on all of his wives, I think after wife number 5 he realized he wasn’t “marriage” material. I could not live with that constant obsession of whether my husband was cheating, I watched those two couples I know do this, and I would leave if I couldn’t trust my partner.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      High five to you T-Rex. I’ve got 32 years of a non-cheating marriage and it has never crossed my mind that in all of those years that I or my husband stepped outside of our marriage for a ‘good time.’ What Caroline said was so stupid that I can’t even wrap my head around it and I like her! What is going on in New Jersey that these women are so delusional about these kind of things. I would never stay married to a cheater. My mother raised me better and smarter.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      “Do I look like a woman who would…” stance regarding Caroline’s answers to the STFU from Al and his likely cheating during their marriage were pure defection! As for fighting in Arizona – she got the opportunity to call Teresa a liar because she knew Teresa wouldn’t say who told her and I am wondering if it was Wacky Jacky because she was just too squirmy during that exchange between Teresa and Caroline.

      • VV says:

        My feeling is that it was Jac as well.

      • VV says:

        Here’s the quote from Tre’s blog:

        “She was miserable the entire trip, fighting with Albert the whole time.”

        On the other hand, Caroline did lie too by pretending Teresa didn’t lift the horses leg and thus perpetuating the Bravo edit lie.

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex good for you & Mr. T-Rex. I believe just what you said. Al has cheated & she chose to ignore it. The little apt above the restaurant that Al tried to cheat the city out of insurance by saying it was his primary residence is a good place to bring a mistress & I wouldn’t be surprised if he had.

      • T-Rex says:

        I would venture to say that Al hasn’t “lived” at the Family home for quite some time. He probably is there a couple of days a week, like Monday or Tuesday, weekends I am sure a fully booked at the Restaurant so he would need to be there all day. Of course that’s where he keeps his “secret stash of ass”.

  5. T-Rex says:

    Grrrr I made a response did it disappear or go into lockdown?

  6. Jacqueline Laurita ‏@JacLaurita 13h
    Last reunion, although brutally honest, I said things that were not my place to say! I was not going there again.

    • VV says:

      She did go there. She put it out there. She should clear it out. Did she lie about it or not? This blanket statement doesn’t do her any favors.

      • Rebecca says:

        That woman was highly medicated last night. Her hysterical laughter over that stupid joke about Kathy not being there was disturbing.

        • chismosa says:

          I think that’s her odd sense of humor. I always think Jacq has a weird sense of humor.
          I think it was not great at that time and place to do that and Kathy clearly is sensitive to it. But Jacq is WACK

          Jacq on crack would be extra WACK
          Say no to crack
          Say no to jack…….
          next season. Shame cause I like her new hair.
          Her neck looked better last night

      • Powell says:

        And she went there again at 13hrs ago. Idiot.

  7. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    So this reunion….
    I’m glad this season is over-it sucked. Same shit different season. No one takes any accountability-NO ONE.
    Melissa and Joe did some shady shit to get on this show-I don’t care if Melissa thinks it’s not a big deal that she contacted Danielle and gave her ammunition for the reunion back in the day-it was wrong and it started this dumb family on a track that is full of lies, deceit and bitterness. Melissa did that-she wanted her fame more than anything else in the world and she didn’t give a shit what she had to do to get it. And her husband came along for the ride knowing what was going to happen. He didn’t care that his family and all their secrets would be exposed because in their simple minds it’s all worth it-their family is in shambles but who gives a shit? It doesn’t matter b/c they got what they wanted-Melissa is a rock star in her mind and a author(God help me after typing that) and a well known HW…all their dreams are coming true-they don’t care about the cost.
    Teresa would have done well to shut up when they first came on-had she not gone along with the Bravo storyline -we would have made up our own minds about Melissa and Joe. Teresa became so busy trying to show us how awful melissa is that she forgot to show us a side of her that we actually liked. She became bitter and did some shady things. It doesn’t matter that she did things to Melissa because of this or that-she sunk to the level that they wanted her to. She looks as foolish as they do.
    Kathy-there is nothing about Kathy that I feel one way or another about. She wanted to become famous for her reasons and in the end she came off looking like a wannabe-following the storyline and making up drama when no one cared. She is probably a great mom and she probably was living a pretty good middle class life before so why she wanted this shit in her life is a mystery to me…fame is the name of the game in NJ.
    Rosie let Bravo turn her into a cartoon because she knew on her own Kathy was so damned boring. They brought in her loud mouthed, scotch drinking lesbian sister to juice up her life-in the end Rosie ended up looking like a deranged lunatic…in pearls. The only time Rosie appeared to be normal was in the videos she did with Joe.
    These people all need to stop blaming each other for this shit-they are all to blame. Not one is better than the other when it comes to the quest for fame.
    If Bravo thinks this is what viewers want to see I think they are mistaken. I don’t know if anyone enjoyed this season…besides Penny and Johnny.
    Thanks to Jeff and NMD and Starzy for the blogs this season-gives yourselves a pat on the back for sifting through this shit and being able to write it up!!

    • VV says:

      Teresa became so busy trying to show us how awful melissa is that she forgot to show us a side of her that we actually liked.
      ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

      I didn’t need Teresa to tell me how awful Melissa was. Melissa showed me that herself with her TH and actions on the show the very first episode she was on.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Spot on Jill. The only thing I might disagree on is I had heard that when Teresa finally accepted that her brother and SIL were coming on the show she had approached them about it all being good and showing a happy family. We all know what happened at the christening. No way could Joey and Melissa bring happiness when they promised to bring drama.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I agree Sue-Joe and Melissa wanted drama-but Teresa didn’t have to go along. She shouldn’t have gone along…they would have ran out of steam if she didn’t keep feeding into it.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          So it really is Teresa’s fault? For feeding the trolls? For existing, is what it seems like.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Nope-that’s not what I mean. When shit starts getting crazy someone has to take the high road for the crazy to stop. Teresa could have done things differently-she didn’t only feed the trolls she rolled out the red carpet for them. She showed that she was willing to sink down and do some shady things. She didn’t have to-she could have just let them implode but she chose to get her hands dirty. So my point is so far from “it’s all Teresa’s fault” but more like Teresa could have come out better.

            • VV says:

              Interesting. Yes, her brother, cousins and SIL came on HER show behind her back. The first scene together Teresa comes over (taking the high road like you stated). Next thing you know Joey is pounding the table and calling her garbage. So, she did try … Just sayin’

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                VV-yes I know this-I know she tried..but then she tried to get even. There are lots of ways this could had been better. I’m not saying everything is Teresa’s fault-I’m saying this show needed a friggen hero and it could have been anyone of them but they were all too in love with being right and showing how wrong the others were. They all became the same people-not one of them looked better than the others. It didn’t have to be that way but there are no right people in the group. Everyone comes off looking small and simple…just sayin’

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Well, she’s not a hero, that’s for sure (which is your point, I guess)…she’s not unlike most of us. Argue, argue, argue,…until one feels understood and heard. Perhaps not always validated as right, but one wishes to be heard and understood. It’s rare to find anyone (even on this board; especially on this board) who will back down from an argument, if they (we) feel we have been misunderstood, misrepresented, etc. Well, we try to make ourselves clear, etc. It can become argumentative and anti-heroic, I suppose, but it’s one of our many human foibles. A hero would have been nice. But heroes are hard to come by in REAL LIFE, much less REALITY TV, it seems.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    My point is NONE of them are the hero. Melissa went on and on last night about how her and Teresa are not the same-they are….each one is the same as the other. No one wanted to be the “good guy” all they wanted was to show how bad the other guy is and in turn showed what had guys they all are.

            • Powell says:

              I said from the beginning that Tre shouldn’t have joined in the reindeer games. They all messed up & I feel missed very lucrative opportunities. But Mel wanted to be a 30yr old autotune star, & Kathy wanted to be the canolli queen so their wishes came true.

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ I said what you’re saying last night but not in such a detailed “Open Letter”. 🙂 You wrote it just like I see it. You need to send it to the NJ crew & Bravo.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Powell-I’m glad it made sense to you. It didn’t have to be this way-they all come off looking bad.

      • mm in oc says:

        In my opinion, Teresa tried to take the high road the first season her SIL and cousin were on the show. That didn’t exactly work out very well for her since in every talking head the entire cast was bashing her. How long do you take the high road until you realize you are being called a idiot, two faced, back stabber, etc etc (all fabricated by Bravo), before you start fighting back. She was never going to win whether she remained silent (love and light) or fought back. I’d rather wallow with serpents than sit on my high horse all by myself on a cloud (and probably lose a job I desperately need).

        I really didn’t like Teresa the first two seasons, but I have to respect her for how she’s tried to navigate this mess (not always so gracefully).

        This is her job, she also is expected to engage. I think she’s trying to find a way to bring the drama without actually further damaging the family.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I totally get what you are saying mm but me personally-I’d rather sit on my high horse alone than wallow with the likes of these people.

          • mm in oc says:

            I don’t think she really had much choice. As super fans of the show, we know more than the casual, TV only fan. I have friends that only watch the show and love Melissa and think Teresa’s to blame for everything. So I’m glad that she was finally sticking up for herself (even if only the crazy few that follow blogs are the only one’s who know what’s up).

            This is the show she signed up for. There’s not room for someone taking the high road. But I agree with you, in real life I wouldn’t bother dealing with them. In fact, I have a close circle of friends because I don’t suffer fools.

            • melthehound says:

              I think Teresa should have just sat on the couch and knitted scarves. Let production film that and try the ‘Teresa’s fault’ story line. If she couldn’t quit, she sure as hell didn’t have to participate in their BS.

  8. VV says:

    Why on earth was Rosie chosen to host the AMA pre show with Lance Bass?
    I’m sorry this chick has big time issues and others are more qualified than her to do the job. IMO.

    • plainviewsue says:

      No, VV, Rosie did not block me!!! And I do not expect her to at all!!

    • chismosa says:

      American music Awards ? What ???
      Is that it? What the F??

      Must be on NBC> Andy > thought to get a larger gay following ?

      But por que? So weird !

  9. Amalfi says:

    Watching crazy, delusional Melissa bemoan people like Jan who would take down a friend just to get on housewives was so funny.

    This woman has an IQ of gnat and zero sense of irony.

  10. plainviewsue says:

    As much as you can “enjoy” a RHONJ reunion, I have to say this was a relaxed one. No screaming at the television. Even my son said later on he didn’t hear me screaming!!

    I thought Teresa did the best ever at a reunion. She thought about her words. I really think that Heather worked with her and guided her, which I am thrilled about. We’ve always said we wish that someone could be in her ear. She brought up the fact that she heard Melissa was the source for Radar On Line and the fact that they didn’t do a story on her singing. Heather had tweeted about that. She didn’t back down to Caroline. Even Melissa called out Caroline a little about her comment that they are the same.

    I nearly choked when Melissa said they are different on the inside, which is a sh*tty thing to say. Personally, I agree. Melissa has no heart.

    Kathy proved to be absolutely useless. Her only storyline is everyone ignores her and Richie is a POS. Once again, defending him. Boring.

    I was happy that Andy brought up the disgusting thing that Richie said to Victoria’s college friends. Kathy and Melissa were used to not being called out for anything for two seasons. So I was happy about that.

    Caroline still has her lemon face. Andy admitted he is scared of her, which is pathetic. She works for you Andy.

    Except for the end, when once again Teresa is held to task for not apologizing properly (give me a break!), I was happy. I liked that Joey was called out by Dr V for his anger issues. Melissa was not happy. She looked over on the couch with a timid smile on her face. Of course Rosie, the queen of anger management issues, thought it was ridiculous. Her replies to Teresa, so what if they get hurt??? The only person who truly loves Joey Gorga is his sister. But he’s too dumb to realize it.

    Looks like next week Caroline goes to town.

  11. Amalfi says:

    Caroline said Al doesn’t cheat on her. Teresa says Joe doesn’t cheat on her.

    Caroline said after that many years of marriage, she would be silly to not entertain that possibility, but when asked if she thought Al cheated, SHE SAID NO and he wouldn’t tell her if he did, and she believes him. Did I hear all that correctly?

    That is just f*cking stupid double talk and why I have no patience for Caroline speaking out of both sides of her mouth.

  12. jezzibel says:

    I would say if Joe wasn’t going to prison. Bravo should produce a show, with just him and Rosie, drunkenly hopscotching across the U.S. doing a Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives style show. They seem to bring out each others better nature.

    • Amalfi says:

      They are both drunk, fat and stupid. America will eat that up. It makes us feel better.

      But seriously, they are sweet together, if it isn’t all for the show. They do have an innocence (probably IQ based) that mitigates their stupidity.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      that is a TV programming genius level idea. genius!!!!! I would watch that because I’m not a genius!! LOL

    So, Danielle was invited but Declined:

    @daniellestaub: @charnois2 indeed they made several very generous offers ….

      Vv I wonder if more generous than the payment offered to Alex and Jill on Beth’s show. Rotfl!!! 💲💲💲💲🏧

      • VV says:

        😆 😆 😆 I think Danielle is holding on the dirt she has on everybody waiting for he right time.

        • Amalfi says:

          I agree VV. I am pretty sure she will show up next season. It would be interesting to see how Teresa, Dina and Danielle would treat Melissa without Jac, Kathie and Caroline backing up her every stupid thought — althought it seems Caro has jumped that ship.

          • chismosa says:

            Caro is done with all of them. DON/ DONE.

            She got what she wanted. Sink or swim. I hope she sinks fast 🏊🏊

            • Amalfi says:

              She has the weight to water ratio on her side if sinking is what you wish on her. Not to be mean, but I can’t stand her — good riddance. Haha.. that was mean and accurate.

        • chismosa says:

          I suppose. But WHEN!?!?!

          When they shut down the NJ franchise forever ? I don’t get it?
          Will next season be an anti Mel edit ? Tre with a favorable one? WHEN!?!?
          Maybe when her obsession Dina is on?

          #teamDanielle

          • Amalfi says:

            I might agree on Team Danielle — as everyone else is pretty vile.

            Danielle has the “I don’t really hate her anymore” vibe coming from Dina and Teresa nowadays. I wonder if that will change once Danielle has a forum for unleashing her inane mouth — but it sounds like she may have changed for the better. She has raised a couple of good daughters, which not even the best self-proclaimed awesome moms (looking at you, Jac and Caro) can claim. This leads me to hope Danielle has some worthwhile qualities ticking inside under all the crazy we saw on tv.

            • Rebecca says:

              I think Danielle knows that if she digs the dirt, more will be shoveled on top of her. If her daughters are doing well now without the stupid drama, she shouldn’t rock the boat.

  14. VV says:

    IA who has always been unkind ( actually really mean ) to the Richards sisters has a nice blog about Kim. Why the change of heart?!!!!!!!!
    You can disagree with me but I think Brandi’s new friendship with the Richards sisters had something to do with it.
    I don’t know how IA was able to get a hair appointment at the same place Kim does. I don’t think it was coincidence. IMO.

    • melthehound says:

      The Iguana did a vlog interview or something like that with Brandi last winter sometime.. Seems they are on pal-like terms or were then. If Brandi is buddying up to the Richards sisters, then what you suggest about the connection may hold water…

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      If IA starts talking nice about Bethenny now that Brandi went on her show and declared her love for her then I will believe anything you say about Brandi swaying IA opinion of anyone…

    🔶Isn’t it funny that they did this reunion at some hall in NJ that is NOT the brownstone ? I wonder if Caro was mad about this. 
    Anyone know if this is a famous hall? I mean from the Borgata …. To this ? 
    🔶Kim D may be Teresa’s breast friend. Who knows. Breast friend and Secuhtary were my two favorite words last night. 
    🔶Why is Tre talking about things getting 🔫🔪violent when she’s the one pushing people around, stalking ‘Paterson’ style, and flipping tables. Oh that’s right cause she’s a new version of herself ! Version 4.0 maybe now ……
    Ughhhhhhh 👅👅👅
    If Joey needs help – (and I think he’s slimmed down too much to claim this steroid thing everyone says)- he should go to whoever redid Teresa. “I’m not like that anymore Andy”. Joey just needs that! 
    🔶Even Dr V points out that the words are hard for Tre. (Off the cuff/ unrehearsed ones). But this year her pr team did very well. HMac & co did well. I don’t personally like manufactured at all but I know the masses mostly appreciate that. 
    I guess she’ll be a good witness/ defendant to prep for her court case since she’s had experience with prepping for this. I’m sorry I just don’t like such disingenuity (if that’s a word). To the extent of this. It makes me itch all over. I have to go scratch! Heehee (My friends have been using that expression for years, so it’s not new to me) 
    🔶When did Joe call Melissa unsexual? Did he say that last night ? Someone said that here last night 
    🔶Can they mandate at reunions to take out the expression “I’m done” 
    Just take it off Bravo, off any HWs show

    • melthehound says:

      Is KimD Really Teresa’s bReast friend?

      • VV says:

        Nope. I think Melissa claims that to throw shade at Teresa. The funny thing is that every time Melissa wears something from Posche Boutique. Kim D let us know. In fact her most recent tweet about this was last month. If Melissa thinks Kim D is so evil, why is she giving her business? Because Melissa is manipulative and thinks viewers are stupid.

        @KimDPosche: Everyone check out @melissagorga in a hot torn dress from @therealPOSCHE !!

          • VV says:

            C’mon Chismo…if those outfits (and Kim had tweeted several times about Melissa wearing her clothes). Melissa, her sisters, her make up guy, and her hair stylist would all be up in arms denying this. You know that?! You think Melissa would keep quiet? She didn’t because they were outfits from Kim D’s boutique.

    • kit9 says:

      Yeah I had to laugh about T’s claim she’s a different person now. Gee, I seem to remember just last season when Kathy was giving her the necessary eye contact a Teresa screed requires so she forcibly jerked her face toward her. But, she’s different now! Yo, yo yo, that was a whole 12 months ago, ya’ll!

  16. T-Rex says:

    Does everyone here think that IF LyingCriminalOaf(allegedly) and Teresa have to face jail time that Bravo will “pull” this franchise?? I don’t think one person likes MeGO on here, and that’s got to be the sentiment elsewhere. Kathy, is just BORING and her husband boorish. WackyJac is probably not going to be asked back on the show and the Manzo’s have a possible spinoff(which I don’t think anyone will watch). I can’t see them recasting unless they moved it to a whole different place in New Jersey. I don’t think anyone would watch Dina, WackJack and boring Kathy, and from the “friends” that were filmed not a single one of them doesn’t have major baggage and damage. Something else came to mind as to why Bravo spent a lot of time setting up Teresa this season, could it be for lying and the bankruptcy and Bravo having to pay their lawyers for all the issues facing Bravo due to the FedCharges. Bravo were most certainly handed a slew of subpoena’s for the film footage, all out-takes included, having to sit for depositions, and I am sure they had to divulge their super-secret cast contracts, etc.

    • Orson says:

      Since they went for the family thing in the NJ franchise, I don’t think they can just switch people out one by one as they did with OC. I guess they could shut NJ down for a year for a complete recasting. But I suspect as long as T is not starring in her own version of “Orange is the New Black”, Bravo will squeeze as much money out of this franchise as they can.

    • chismosa says:

      Interesting — when do you think Bravo got called in by the Feds ? PRE- editing ? That early ???

      And not that anyone believes me but truly I don’t Love Mel- I just don’t despise her or I hate her one of the leasts of this terrible bunch.
      I know I get clumped in sometimes …..

    • melthehound says:

      I don’t think Bravo was subpoenad for anything. Everything they are charged with happened before RHONJ.

      • T-Rex says:

        Actually there are documents out there that Bravo was indeed subpoenaed, the Juicy’s didn’t file bankruptcy until AFTER they went on the show. In addition, part of a criminal case is your “character”, and using footage to show the lavish spending, all cash, the pattern of lies, Juicy’s arrest for DUI, and if he is convicted on the Criminal Charges, those will be brought into court as well. They were charged after all of these incidents, they can use anything and everything Bravo has against them. I am positive they subpoenaed her contract to confirm what she was making at the time of bankruptcy and subsequent money payouts. Remember they had to withdraw their bankruptcy “with prejudice” after the Trustee told the courts that the Juicy’s lied on their bankruptcy paperwork, this is part of the charges.

    • Constance says:

      I like her. I just post very little. I used to come and read and post here quite a bit, but the blog seems so slanted against Melissa and pro Theresa there isn’t much point in reading here much anymore.

  19. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I do have to hand it to Teresa, she seemed to do a great job of holding it down last night; I don’t know if she had a lot of replies or come backs prepared in her head before the show but she came across as very composed and dare I say…intelligent.

    Baby Joey still crying that Teresa threw his barbie doll out the window had my DH and I in stitches.I am sure if his father caught wind of that, he would be mortified. A grown ass man crying over a toy all these years later about how his big sissy was mean to him…one time…even though clearly she coddled and babied him most of his life..until he took a wife.

    Then his complaining to Rosie that ‘everyone thinks I’m a fn maniac’. Yeah…I do. It’s almost as funny in a pathetic sort of way as Brandi getting carried out bar…while she is ajusting her tampon string…saying “Immmmmmmmmmaaa noooot drrrrrrrrrrrrrunnnnnnnnkkk”

    The Walkies and Rosie are just so gross. I caught Rosie’s twitter rant last night ,,,

    Bravo needs to make them go away.

    • Powell says:

      I love “Teresa threw his Barbie doll out of the window”. 🙂 I just couldn’t get over the fact that that is still utmost in his puney brain. I hope the guys at the gym caught that one.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        HI Powell, me to,

        But that being said, what I would love more is if Joey is back next season is for him to go to regression therapy.. I would love to watch baby Joey relive the experience through hypnotism and cry some more tears. After which, maybe Teresa can take him for some ice cream and buy him a balloon, only then can their relationship really heal.

  20. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    The worst part about this dumb reunion is that I missed Homeland and Revenge b/c I was watching…shame shame!!!!

      NO! Homeland wasn’t the show to tape last night. Watch it live, tape the BS.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Rebecca-I’m so ashamed!! I meant to change to Homeland but then it got sucked into NJ…
        Powell I’m going to watch Revenge as soon as I can…I’m done missing good shows for Bravo crap!!!

  21. Orson says:

    Is it possible that under her long hair T was wearing some sort of blue tooth earpiece and was being ‘prompted’ by her PR/Legal advisor during the reunion?

    • Amalfi says:

      We all have wanted that for about 5 seasons’ worth of reunions now…. She still fumbles, but for her (yes, a much lower standard — sorry and I even like her) it was pretty good.

    • chismosa says:

      Possible. There were some clip ins in there

  22. designernailsdiana says:

    Who dresses these women?
    Caroline’s dress was ill-fitting and off the shoulders is not a good look for her. The blue was a nice color, but not quite right for her either. The hideous waist area was the wrapped look. UGH Not flattering at all unless you’re standing up or laying down.
    Jacqueline’s dress was another one of those wrapped at the waist dresses. Red is a good color for her, but I wish she’d had the dress Caroline had on. The off the shoulder look with her perkier breasts would have looked much better than Caroline’s did in the bust area (Caroline wear a bra that lifts the girls).
    Kathy what can I say, but YUCK. Nice fitting, but black? Really? She should have worn green or fuchsia because those colors would look better with her dark hair.
    Melissa had on a great color, but it looked like a toga I wore on my last vacation. She wore gold belt with it. She has that nice figure so why wear a sheet with a slit up the leg and one shouldered. I’m sorry, but this one shoulder dress thing has been OVER done by all the HW franchises.
    Teresa’s dress was the only dress not one color and plain. I LOVE her dress. I want to make her dress for the formal in March. Great looking green toned with a nice sparkle unlike last season’s “Christmas Pageant” dress.
    I say they grab a few losers from Project Runway and have them design their dresses. I say losers because we all know the 1-3rd winners get into the biz faster.
    Heck I could do a better dress and I’m an amateur seamstress.
    Who am I, but a simple 50+ woman living in the frozen state of Minne”snow”ta? I dare to question these dress choices? Yes because apparently this is what EVERYONE is wearing. NOT!!!!
    Ok off my soapbox. See photos above for the dresses.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      LOL Maybe it is a family fashion thing.
      The person who dressed Caroline also dressed Wacky – at least they weren’t doing that 10 pounds of sausage in a 5 pound casing this year!
      Kathy and Melissa obviously decided to wear long dresses this year to mock Teresa – IMHO, both failed with Melissa looking like she was going to a toga party and Kathy looking like Ursula from Little Mermaid. Don’t even get me started on Kathy’s makeup.
      And I liked that Teresa changed it up and wore a simple yet sparkly dress and sat like a lady!

    • Powell says:

      Diana last night I said Caroline’s boobs are too big for off the shoulder dresses.

      I just really liked the hair. I think Tre & Mel have the best hair. Kathy & Jac’s looked nice also. I wasn’t in love w/any of the dresses but a few were better than the OC ladies were.

    • Powell says:

      But throughout the franchise so many of them don’t know how to dress cuz there is often too much cleavage shown. Yes most have nice boobs but they don’t have to have slits in the front or huge keyhole openings. Dresses that are well proportioned and fit are a lot more sexy IMO.

    • Powell says:

      And why do they sit with the slit open? We don’t need to see their legs like that. Not classy at all. Diana you know I’ve been over the one shoulder dress since Countess Lou wore them to death. She set the trend in the franchise & they all jumped aboard. Of Lou wears one of those dresses this season she’s gonna hear about it from me. You all can’t stand the boots. I can’t stand the one arm dress.

      • chismosa says:

        I found Tre’s shoes quite clunky. Like to wear to work (or court) in a business suit.

        They all sat the same way I think

    • chismosa says:

      If Mel’s dress was a mullet one that’d be nice.

  24. Well, I didn’t watch last week and I didn’t watch the reunion…cuz after Mego’s book I stated right here on the blog that I was done and I felt obligated to not be a liar face!!! So last night I watched:
    Long Island Medium, Amazing Race, Chopped, Dowton Abbey S4E3, Homeland and The Good Wife…all really good and not upsetting…although the bride that lost her husband on the night of her wedding on LIM was really sad!!
    I will say that the picture of Joe Guidice above cracks me up and I know that he is allegedly a cheater, liar, thief, etc, etc, etc, there is something about him….
    And just because I didn’t watch, don’t worry, I don’t feel morally superior at all…well, just a little, lol!!!

    *******IMPORTANT**************
    On the Prayer page is a post from Zanne….it is from June and she was in really bad shape, I have emailed her today and hopefully will hear from her. I feel really bad cuz there were no replies to her post!!! So keep her in your thoughts!! Thanks.

    Jeff! thanks for the TAR recap!!! – not sure which team I like the least – the brothers or the ex-couple – they are both SOOO annoying – right now I’m rooting for the hippies – I like them a lot –

    as for the reunion – I continue to say that Tre is someone you can see coming a mile away – when she is angry you know it – she does not hide it at all – her emotions are what rule her – she is also, I think, not that educated – her speech indicates that to me, but I don’t think she is stupid – I think she just has trouble communitcating her thoughts coherently especially on the fly – she is better when she has time to think – Mel on the other hand will have the knife in your back and be long gone before you even feel the blade – did anyone notice Joey’s almost bald head? hmmmm………. his emotional growth is stunted – he thinks throwing these temper tantrums and charging at people make him appear like a “real” man – such foolishness – but to him it is quite real – as for cheating in a marriage – I can and will only speak about my own marriage – I have told my husband, that if he ever wants to be with someone else, to just say the word and he is free to go – there would be no reason to sneak around – there would be no scenes, no nothing – I will not live with it – however – that does not mean that all other women would choose to handle that issue in the same way and just because it would not work for me does not give me the right to pass judgement on someone who handles it differently – I only know my whole story – I don’t know theirs, nor do I wish to –

    I detest Richie Walkie – yes I know his name is misspelled – he is a pig –

    • melthehound says:

      Do you mean the cousins from Afghanistan ? Hippies are turning out to be pretty cool. Most of them are or at least by comparison.. The ones I thought I might like but don’t are the baseball wives. Too mushy for a race like this. It seems they spend more time hugging each other than getting things done (the right way) because one is always having some kind of a meltdown..

      • shamrockblonde says:

        yes, the Afghanistan brothers – that high pitched yiiiii thing the one does irritates me to no end – reminds me of “come on twinny” – *shudders* – they are very annoying in general –

  26. I am enjoying this season of Amazing Race so far. It has been awhile since I have enjoyed the couples. I thought that Bingo was funny when they were getting into the taxi and he said, “You can give him “muchos” later”, it made me laugh, I was sorry to see him go cuz he was cracking me up on the bike ride!!! oh well..

        I mean even if you don’t know any gay ppl personally theres this show that was insanely popular called “WILL AND GRACE” how many times does Jack call himself a woman or girl?? How many times do they all tease eachother about their roles and sexuality?? I know this is just a show but 90% of producers and writers of these shows are what???!?! GAY. So you can’t really blame anyone for these stereotypes which aren’t stereotypes but actually TRUTHS.

        P.S. Idk if I missed it in the blog but why no mention at all about Rosie grabbing Joey Gorgas package during the reunion? Isn’t that more gross than Richie grabbing her boobs since idk Joey Gorga is her COUSIN????

        Also love how Joey and Melissa blame Teresa for Joey being seen as a monster or violent. Ummmmm..how is that Teresas fault?? She made you behave that way?? How and why should she defend that behavior??

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        And while we are at it…..

        Let’s look at Rosie-and the types of girls she seems to pine after are more on the famine side (white wine as opposed to scotch on the rocks drinkers) . Let’s say she finally scored ( I won’t hold my breath) and was going to get married….only one bride would be in a dress…and it wouldn’t be Rosie ,

    • T-Rex says:

      I have to agree, and I have LOADS of gay friends. Look I can find a jillion things to hate about the LyingCriminalOaf(allegedly), but what he said shouldn’t be THAT offensive. We went to Europe with our gay-boys who left their “husbands” at home and had shirts made for all of us saying “Girls Weekend Road Trip”, since it was my sister, myself, another girlfriend and the two guys. Shoot we even all got pedicures the day before, replete with the White French polish.

      • djprincessc says:

        THANK YOU. I don’t have any close gay friends anymore really as most moved or we lost touch but all you have to do is go to West Hollywood, Long Beach or San Francisco here in CA to get an idea of roles. lol. Maybe gays around the rest of the world are different??? JK. Maybe Andy doesn’t have any gay friends so he’s clueless?? haha.

        • T-Rex says:

          Mr T-Rex works with a husband of a couple, we are great friends his partner likes to do amateur Drag at talent nights, and trust me unless you spot his adam’s apple, you wouldn’t know he was a dude, he looks amazing decked out in Drag. I also know a few couples that don’t have a feminine/masculine type of arrangement either, in fact you wouldn’t realize at first that they are gay, they are both definitely husbands, no wife type in their relationship. Don’t want to lump all gay couples into one bunch either, there are loads of diversity in their community.

          • djprincessc says:

            Eh. Kinda disagree with you on that, 90% do have the feminine/masculine roles. When I meet a couple that doesn’t and you would never be able to tell, that isn’t the norm to me. But whatever, either way still don’t think the comment was offensive in the slightest 😉

        Oh I don’t care. LIke I said I don’t know the cousin. I know Jamal but haven’t seen or spoken to him in like 10 years. His sister and I are still close but shes not on the show so say what you want. If it were her thats a different story! lol.
