Real Housewives Of New Jersey – O, Christmas Tre

 Real Housewives Of New Jersey

S6E2  “O, Christmas Tre”

By HydrangeaHussy

Last week we met our three new housewives: Ter-eh-sa A, Nicole, and Amber.  I’m keeping an open mind and giving these ladies another week or two before I pass judgment, but so far I’m not particularly impressed with any of them.  We begin this week with the first peek at the ladies’ taglines:

Teresa G: You never know how strong you are, until it’s the only choice you have

Melissa: I’ve learned to forgive, and never regret

Teresa A & Nicole: You’re not seeing double, you’re seeing trouble

Amber: I’m a survivor; no one is bringing me down

Dana: I’m back to bring the Zen, Namaste bitches

It’s Christmas time in New Jersey.  The Giudices are putting up their tree.  Teresa is happy to be home and out of the public eye.   She says that they can be normal.  Juicy Joe is the only one working.  Gia is playing with her phone, Teresa is watching, and Milania is isn’t helping because she’s a girl.  Over at the Gorga house, Joe is also putting up the tree.  They’re in a much smaller rental while they build their dream house.  Their oversized Christmas décor isn’t really working in the smaller house.  Melissa is not pleased.  Teresa A. is trying to keep the old traditions alive in her house.  Teresa’s son doesn’t want to go to college, he wants to learn the restaurant business from his father.  The twins’ father believes strongly in keeping the Italian culture alive.  Amber and her kids are making a gingerbread house together.  She’s just as controlling in this as she is in everything.  Children weren’t originally on her agenda because children are disgusting, but now she loves being a mom.  Amber is organizing the perfect Christmas for her kids.  She thinks a perfect and controlled environment is best for her kids.  What fun it must be living in that house!  Dina has a small tree outside because her cats won’t let her have a tree in the house.  I completely understand!  My cat climbs in the tree so we have to tie it to the wall to keep it upright.  They are putting edible ornaments so the animals outside can eat them.  Lexi got accepted to college in Virginia, but NYU is her first choice.  I can’t believe that Lexi is already going to college!

Back at the Giudices, Teresa is trying to make the most of the holiday season.  She tells Juicy that people were discussing her at the harvest party.  He doesn’t care what people say, they have a great family and they will prove their innocence in court.  He tears up a little.  This is the most emotion that I’ve seen from Juicy.  It’s nice to see how much he truly cares about his family.  Teresa is tired of having this court case hanging over them and is ready for resolution.

RHONJ S6E2_1Nicole and Dina go to lunch.  Nicole thinks that they have a lot in common and looks forward to making a new, single friend.  Dina checks her teeth in her knife – super classy.  She tells Nicole that she hasn’t ever dated.  She started dating Tommy only two months after separating from Lexi’s father.  Talk about moving on quickly.  Nicole felt empowered after leaving her husband, but she thinks that Dina doesn’t know what she wants.  Being married was Dina’s identity, now she’s lost that and her daughter is leaving home.  It’s gotta be hard to lose your husband and your daughter at the same time.  Nicole tells Dina that she was crushed when she first left her husband.  She was shocked by some things that she learned afterward.  I wonder if she was cheated on too.  Afterward, she had to move in with her parents and rebuild.  The conversation turns to Amber.  Dina thinks that she’s really sweet.  Nicole says that they’re good friends, but there’s obviously some tension right now.  Nicole chalks that up to the guests she brought to Amber’s party.  She feels like Amber made a big deal out of Nicole inviting other guests.  Nicole is letting it go because she doesn’t want to lose a good friend over one disagreement.  She thinks that Amber is a little OCD.  Ya think?

RHONJ S6E2_2Amber is doing a fire drill with her kids because Christmas is a dangerous time.  Between lights on the tree and candles burning, she’s concerned about fire.  She’s a worst-case-scenario type of mom.  After the drill, they go over how to get out of the house and how to use their ladder.  It’s a good idea to walk your kids through what to do in case of a fire, but their whole method (whistle and timer) seems a little weird.

Melissa and Joe are taking the kids to see their new lot in Franklin Lakes.  They haven’t started clearing the land yet, but have the plans done.  The house will be similar to their old house, but Melissa wants to go more LA-chic with it.  She doesn’t even know what that means, but she keeps saying it.  Teresa and Dina call, they are near the new lot and want to stop by.  Melissa says that they didn’t move to get away from Teresa, despite the clip from the reunion where she says exactly that.  They moved so Joe could be closer to work.  Franklin Lakes was where they started their family, so it’s a special place.  Now that she doesn’t have Kathy and the Manzos to film with, she needs to stay close to Teresa.  Dina is trying to keep an open mind on Melissa because she wants Teresa to get along with her family.  Dina and Melissa are both the babies of their families.  Teresa doesn’t understand why Joe and Melissa move so often, but says that “to each his own.”  I’m actually liking laid-back Teresa.  Melissa says that she’s ready to be settled in a house.  Dina says that her main focus is on Lexi leaving for college, so she doesn’t want to deal with moving at the same time, which is why she’s been separated from Tommy for a year but is still living with him.  That’s a very odd situation to me, but I understand not wanting to uproot Lexi for her senior year.  Joe reminds his sister that he’ll do anything she needs and tells her to call if she needs to talk, but he’s going to stay out of it otherwise.  Teresa says that Gia is the only one who knows what’s going on.  She wants to show Gia to be strong and keep going.  That’s great, but I hate that their legal troubles are affecting Gia.  It’s got to be horrible for someone her age to worry about her parents going to jail.

RHONJ S6E2_3Teresa A is meeting with a designer to go over tile for a new restaurant.  Rino knows about the food, but she knows about the décor.  She’s glad they have money because it brings freedom.  She and Antonino (the designer) want a sexy vibe in the new restaurant.  They agree that tablecloths are needed.  Her son, Giovanni, wants to join the family business, so this will be his place to learn.  Rino takes their son to Angelo’s (the family restaurant) to begin his training, learning the system from the ground up.  It’s cool that they’ve had the restaurant in the family for so long.  It’s truly a family business and Rino’s sister is also there.  Rino walks him through the kitchen, showing him where everything is and how it works.  He has Giovanni make a white clam sauce and pasta for him, which turns out nicely.  I didn’t dislike Rino as much as I did in the last episode.

RHONJ S6E2_4Melissa and Joe are having a holiday dinner with all of the cousins since they are so busy on Christmas.  Rosie, Kathy, and Richie attend.   Thank goodness there won’t be a repeat of the last holiday, where the Gorgas left the Giudice house to go to the Wakiles’.  Kathy hasn’t seen Teresa lately.  Melissa tells Kathy that Teresa doesn’t want to talk about her troubles, but that she’s staying strong and positive.  Rosie agrees that being positive is the only way to get through it.  Kathy was in Italy when she learned about the indictment and she immediately texted Teresa her support.  I wonder how their relationship is now.  Juicy doesn’t seem excited about the dinner, but Teresa points out that it’s Christmas and that family needs to support each other during this time.  She’s over being stressed about family.  Thank goodness!  I couldn’t take another season for Gorga family drama.  Rosie feels awful for what Teresa is going through and worries about the children.  I cannot explain how bad I feel for the kids.  Everyone brought gag gifts to exchange and open.  Teresa got a dictionary.  LOL, the irony is not lost on me!  Melissa says that Teresa needs a dictionary and Teresa doesn’t bite her head off.  Can they really have buried the hatchet?  I bet this is just for TV.  Melissa makes a toast, pointing out how happy she is to see everyone getting along.  It’s nice to see them having fun and not griping about each other.

Rino is making lobster for Teresa and Nicole’s family.  They have family dinner weekly.   That’s a great tradition to have; I still have dinner with my parents weekly.   Rino is taking the opportunity to show Gio how to cook.  He knows that Gio can’t just walk into the restaurant and take over because of his family.  He needs to learn the business, starting in the kitchen.  Way to instill a good work ethic!  So many kids would expect to just take over without working for it.  BTW, what is up with Rino’s   Nicole has lived with her parents for the last three years and is dating Bobby now.  Her parents are concerned about her relationship, which she finds nosy.   It’s never a good sign when your parents are concerned about a man.  She says that she can’t live with them forever.   Her mom doesn’t want her to leave, but thinks it will be good for her.  Nicole says that she won’t move in with Bobby until marriage.

RHONJ S6E2_5It’s Christmas morning at the Giudice’s.  The girls are tearing into their presents, which aren’t as extravagant as they have been in the past.  Teresa tries to get them to open one at a time so they can see them all.  Each of the girls gets a toy puppy.  Gia is upset because she wanted a real puppy.  Audriana seems really pleased with the toy version.  They hear something in the living room and…there’s a real puppy!  I think we all saw that coming.  The poor thing looks so scared when the whole clan comes running at it, lol.  The naming immediately begins.  I hope the girls can keep the puppy if both Teresa and Juciy end up in jail.

Dina doesn’t like Christmas because she’s never had a good one.  She can’t get over Lexi leaving.  Dina doesn’t want Lexi to be too disappointed if she doesn’t get into NYU.  She thinks that they will have a bigger adjustment than most mother/daughters because they’re so close.  Dina has Lexi write NYU on a rock and throw it into the river.  There are other rocks, but I don’t know what was written on them.  The rock throwing has something to do with being open to the universe.  Honestly, I don’t get it.  She has to be open to getting in or not getting in.  Dina is learning to let go and give over to God because she can’t control everything.

RHONJ S6E2_6Nicole and her mother are celebrating Christmas.  She says that Christmas time is always hard because her children are with their father.  Bobby arrives to cheer her up and exchange gifts.  It’s their first Christmas together.  They aren’t a mushy-mushy, gooey-gooey couple.  Nicole gets a shoe-shaped wine bottle holder.  Her mother notes that she saw it at the pharmacy.  The look on Nicole’s face is priceless – she is not impressed with her gift but trying not to show it.  Nicole doesn’t consider herself materialistic, but what your boyfriend gives you can tell you a lot.  I may be materialistic, because if my boyfriend of nine months bought me a wine holder at a drugstore for Christmas, I’d be disappointed.

Melissa is worried that the cold and snow will slow down the building of their house.  It has to warm up some so they can pour the foundation.  Joe says that Melissa isn’t used to a small house.  She has clothes and shoes in every closet and cupboard.  Shoes in the kitchen…really?  Joe wants the house built as quickly as possible, because he can’t take Melissa complaining about the house anymore.  He says that it could take awhile though.  They’re still applying for permits.  I think that Melissa needs to appreciate what they have – their rental is bigger than many people’s home.  It’s not like they’re slumming it.  They go outside to sled with the kids.  Joe gets his tongue stuck to a pole.  Didn’t he watch RHoOC?

RHONJ S6E2_7The Giudice kids are sleeping in one bed with their new puppy.  Teresa is really worried about how they’ll care for the kids in the future.  After the kids are tucked in, the couple has a quiet moment by the fire.  Juicy gives Teresa a card because he remembers how much she likes sweet cards from him.  Juicy wishes that they didn’t have the “little issues.”  He appreciates that Teresa is being strong.  She reminds him that she does worry a lot, and he admits that he worries constantly.  He worries about being away from his girls and Teresa.  She says that the family doesn’t function without him.  Again, it’s nice to see Juicy as a caring father.  I didn’t like the sarcastic, moody, nasty Juicy of last season.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s Bottom Lip Monday. 😝 Ugh. 👎 Are you all awake? I could use a few more zzzs. But here we are. Up and at ’em. I hope you have a great day.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Off today. I’m up now!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      100+ degrees today. Hey summer, you finally made it! I liked last week’s 70 degrees so much better though. The corn is loving this heat!

      I think I’m feeling the onset of kidney infection. My lower back hurts on both sides and going to the ladies room is becoming uncomfortable. Starting to drink cranberry juice and I hope that staves it off. No fever yet, but yuck!

  2. Plain Jane says:

    Did Teresa greet Kathy? I missed it. When Melissa gave that short speech, you could tell Teresa was annoyed. Yep Teresa hasn’t changed.

  3. ladebra says:

    Morning! I could use another Sunday😛 I must say though, it was a great weekend. I started a new quilt – first one in over a year. I really love to quilt, but it just got too difficult in the last place I lived (not really enough space to leave everything out), but I started a baby quilt yesterday and I really think I’m going to enjoy quilting again.

    My boss is going in today for a double mastectomy. She’s in her late 30s I think, and she found it early through self examination, but I believe in the power of prayer and positive thoughts, so if you think about it today , I would appreciate if you could say a little prayer for a good outcome.

    So glad your vacation was fabulous Jill. Summer family vacations are some of my favorite memories. Good times. And fun times!

  4. T-Rex says:

    Good Morning! Glad to hear that the JerseyShoreGrowsUp crew is acting a bit more like normal human beings this season, but still not going to give a pass at ConvictFelonLyinJuicy’s just because they are acting like grown ups this year. I can’t believe that ConvictFelonGorilla was professing his innocence on camera when we all know he is guilty guilty guilty, seriously just shut up about it instead of lying. Lying is what got you in this mess to begin with. I don’t give ConvictFelonLyinTeresa a pass either, she knew exactly what was going on, sorry they have her on camera and bank employees have testified that SHE came in alone to bring in her W-2 forms that were complete fiction, this is one of the reasons she had to plead guilty to that charge. Again I will also point out that they are spending money that they claim they don’t have which is ridiculous. Supposedly ConvictFelonLyinTeresa went to college for a couple of years, uhm, and she couldn’t figure out that there was something wrong with them never paying anything on credit cards, they didn’t keep their wads of cash in a bank and she never signed the yearly IRS tax forms? I am sure all those people they still owe money to are feeling sorry for them only being able to spend half a fortune for their christmas, yeah right. I hope they get the book thrown at them, and as I pointed out yesterday they are complete fools if they don’t think that the Feds aren’t watching their every move on this show, could this be the reason for the sentencing delay?

    • Plain Jane says:

      I hope she goes to jail. No house arrest. This is bullshit! They get to keep the house and all the shit in it?! Where can I learn to scam and defraud ppl? Sign me up.

      • T-Rex says:

        Plus they have a house on the Jersey Shore, can afford for ConvictFelonTeresa to have full hair and makeup folks coming in several times a week, can go to Country Clubs, take lavish vacations, etc. Cry me a river that you don’t have college money for those kids. These two idiots are the most selfish parents, and deserve everything that’s coming to them. If they cared about their kids they wouldn’t have lied and defrauded the banks and the people they owe money to, if they cared about their kids they wouldn’t have spent all that money on that awful decor in their house, if they cared about their kids they wouldn’t have spent all that money on designer clothes and shoes and would have put that in the bank for their college tuition. There is a reason they didn’t put money in the bank and probably still don’t it’s so they don’t have to claim this on their taxes! They are still to this day trying to scam their way out of paying what they owe.

        • ladebra says:

          All of what you say, but on top of everything, even now – no remorse, no acknowledgment that they did anything wrong, no concern that what they did was a crime, that people were hurt, that they are not entitled to live without regard of the law, that the consequences of their intentional fraud is hurting their children, not the law, not the State, not the haters, them.

          • T-Rex says:

            Deb- I know right? They have absolved themselves of any crimes they have committed and get “ruffled” if anyone refers to them as Convicted Felons, which is what they ARE! They pled guilty, this means they are criminals. But no it’s everyone else’s fault not their own. Again these are the two most selfish folks. Oh and ConvictFelonTeresa gave an interview wherein she stated that if Bravo fires them, they will just whore themselves out to another network, this is her job now to be on Reality TV, ugh ask TheLunaticZarin how that’s working out for her!

          • chismosa™ says:

            All of youse ^^^^^

            Good comments.
            I didnt watch yet. Gross.

          • Powell says:

            You’re right Ladebra. No ifs ands or buts. But. 😉 This is Dec on the show and they hadn’t started going to court yet. When they first appeared in court they were claiming “innocence” so should we really expect for them to be on tv at this time in Dec saying they did anything wrong? As T-Rex has said the feds are watching the show. Now if the show is still taping when they are sentenced, which I can’t see how because that is many months away from their current day Dec, if they’re still feigning their innocence then yes they should really be horse whipped. They need to be honest for their girls. They need to teach them right from wrong cuz clearly they haven’t been taught that.

        • Plain Jane says:

          Makes we at to throw up.

    • Powell says:

      Yes T-Rex the feds have someone assigned to do just that. Watch them on the show, watch Tre on The View, et al. Monitor her Twitter, instagram, FB. All to follow 💰💰💰💰 any way they can

  5. Powell says:

    Kit I saw last night you’re not buying Tre not knowing what she signed over and over again, that she had to know. We have to remember that when Joe says anything to Tre she listens. She doesn’t question him. Along w/that she’s not that bright about certain things. So I think every time he asked her to sign she did just that. But like judges will say there’s no excuse for ignorance of the law or however they say it.
    And I saw comments how Tre had a team of people getting her ready. Two hairstylists. I’m sure she’s learned a thing or two by now and can do w/o the team and save those thousands. I’ve been saying I wish Vicki would hire a team cuz she can afford it but Tre can no longer afford that luxury.

    • T-Rex says:

      Powell I absolutely think she knew exactly what they were doing, I don’t buy the whole dingbat routine she is selling regarding this. In the documents for the indictment two witnesses for the bank said that ConvictFelonTeresa came in BY HERSELF to bring them the fraudulent W-2 forms, she has worked before she signed W-2 forms before, she knew she was signing forms to commit fraud. In addition, she signed some loan paperwork without ConvictFelonGorilla as well. She claims to have a couple of years of college, and you can’t tell me that she didn’t know she hadn’t been signing yearly tax documents to file with the IRS. Nope, sorry, I think she was in this up to her huge eyeballs! Also, she knew they didn’t have a bank account and they were paying cash for everything so the government wouldn’t know how much money they were making, in addition she knew they didn’t have credit cards, sorry it’s complete BS she didn’t know.

      • Exit4 says:

        You don’t sign a W2.

        • T-Rex says:

          Crap, that’s so right, it’s your wage statements, I was thinking of the W-9 form for signatures. But she did bring the W-2 forms to the bank, knowing she didn’t work, but brought them to the bank to prove her wages.

          • 2Stupid says:

            There are plenty of people that have family owned businesses that get W-2’s through the company and they don’t really work there. I hope you aren’t saying all of those are criminals because the CPA’s I know recommend that all the time. Also, W-2 your children so they can open up Roth IRA’s. I am not saying she is 100% innocent, but I don’t think she really knew the amount of fraud she was commiting. I don’t understand anyone feeling entitled, but it is VERY hard for me to watch and not have a little sympathy for that family.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I think for many people, myself included it would be easier to find sympathy if they still weren’t living in a house that costs a couple of million dollars in addition to having a vacation home, expensive cars, cloths. ect . Not to mention, they haven’t made restitution other than that pitiful amount that was ordered once they took the plea.

              The kids also get VERY expensive lessons for their various activities The plus of that is that girls who play sports (at least at the highschool level )are statistically less likely get pregnant as teens and are more likely to complete high school and go to college. But that is still a luxury that many honest working people can afford for their own kids.

              The only ones in this mess that I truly feel sorry for are the children. It’s not that I will get a huge sense of satisfaction if Teresa and/or Joe get sent to prison. but they did this to themselves.

            • T-Rex says:

              2 – I love you all here, you guys are the bomb! But for the life of me can’t figure out why folks think she didn’t know anything, she knew it all. To this day they continue to throw around money like they are multi-milionaires with no debts, she knows exactly what is going on. If you didn’t sign an IRS document every year for five years you don’t think you aren’t paying taxes? Why don’t you have bank accounts, but keep wads of cash in a safe in your home. Nope she was in on the fix right along side her criminal husband.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I agree with you Powell, but in this way. Joe asked Tre to sign papers. She knew what she was signing, but because Joe told her to sign them, she did. It didn’t matter to her if she knew it was wrong or not. Whatever Joe told/asked her to do, she did, no questions asked. Blind is as blind does. Now they must pay the piper.

    • kit9 says:

      Yep, the cow had TWO people working on her hair for the photo shoot. Two. The woman who was just whining about not having money for Gia’s college fund, was acting like she was freaking Gisele. But, of course, those were crocodile tears. She doesn’t give two sh*ts about Gia’s college$. And, we have seen Teresa question Joe–even the stickiest of issues, like Joe’s cheating. And, I’m sure she does much more extensive questioning on an infinitely larger span of subjects than what they chose to put on the show, when the cameras aren’t around, obviously. There is simply no way she didn’t know given her role her *income* , played in securing the loans and the number of TIMES these two grifters pulled the scam. There’s no way she avoided coming face to face with the banks, title companies during all those times, on all those loans. No way she signed forms that many times without glancing at what was on the paper. And, nobody is so dumb they dont know claiming they held jobs they didn’t have and earned income they never earned is illegal.

      • T-Rex says:

        I have signed three titles and EVERY time the title agent went through everything we were signing, we were there for an hour going over everything and this is done with all titles, unless of course the title agent was in on the “con” with them, either way ConvictFelonLyinTeresa KNEW what she was signing. SHE brought documents needed by the banks on no less than TWO occasions by herself. she didn’t sign IRS documents for more than five years, no way she didn’t know. It’s easy now to play the damsel in distress, that’s their game! In addition she KNEW that they were hiding income, she was on a TV Reality show, she knew she was being paid, she knew she was being paid for a book she wrote, and neither of those incomes were reported to the bankruptcy courts and she lied about that under oath. These two are con artists and again they still owe millions of dollars to the banks and others that they have NEVER paid, but they spend, spend, spend on themselves, screw the kids futures, screw the banks, it’s all about the two of them.

  6. plainviewsue says:

    Regarding Dina’s comment about hating Christmas, what a shocked to find out that was edited!! She said she actually said she loves Christmas & said that was referring to Valentines Day!! She also tweeted that she had a wonderful Christmas but chose to not have it filmed. Tommy was there, as well as her parents.

    • T-Rex says:

      She didn’t choose, Two-Timing-Tommy chose, who is she kidding. It’s his house and when he’s there, no cameras allowed, that’s why there are very little scenes of his house that she is living in, in exchange for sex. I didn’t watch the show so I don’t know if DiabolicalDina is lying or not.

  7. jezzibel says:

    A high-heel wine holder from CVS/Walgreens…wow. See I could have built a whole gift basket around the wine holder, that you wouldn’t have cared that it was $9.99 wine holder from the pharmacy
    1) High Heel wine holder
    2)bottle of recipients favorite wine
    3) two wine glasses to share the wine later
    3a) optional wine charms
    4) box of nice crackers
    5)nice but small cheese and sausage assortments(since they are Italian this would not have been that hard to find)
    6)Nice chocolate nibbles
    7) small to medium hamper and a nice ribbon to tie around it
    I think their relationship is doomed, if he can’t even be bothered put some effort into getting her a decent christmas present.

  8. T-Rex says:

    I can see it now. Producers driving CluelessBobby to Nicole’s house.

    Production to the clueless Bobby, “uhm we are filming a christmas scene, didn’t you bring her anything”
    CluelessBobby “we’ve only been dating for 6 months(a lot of guys never get the actual time period of dating right)”
    Production: “Don’t you think you should bring something”
    CluelessBobby “pull over theirs a CVS right there, I will grab something”
    CluelessBobby in the store “uhm women like shoes, this is a big shoe, I will get this for her” completely unaware it’s actually a wine holder, LOL!

    • T-Rex says:

      Crap this was supposed to go under Jezzibel’s great post.

      • jezzibel says:

        still even after 6 months, he must have some idea of what she likes…but I think you’re right the heavy hand of the producers is all over that

        • T-Rex says:

          Exactly, the word is “jewelry”, get her a pair of earrings or a nice bracelet for craps sake. Even if she doesn’t like it she will be impressed he picked out something nice for her. I get the feeling this “relationship” is another “contrived for Bravo production”

  9. Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

    I officially am eye-rolling the new ladies. They are playing it over-the-top for the camera. It annoys me. I’m calling bullshit on the fire drill, the lobsters for family dinners, etc. Fake jersey girls? Say it ain’t so.

    Why did they have to ruin the season with the Wakiles? Ick. We’re not dumb. We know kathy has brothers. Where were they for this “cousins dinner?” Change the name to famewhore dinner. I wonder how often Kathy and Richie were calling to get themselves on camera. Glad to see she’s still a condescending, passive aggressive bitch. At least she’s consistent.

    • Prince Ali says:

      I completely agree with your assessment of the new housewives. They are definitely playing it up.

    • kit9 says:

      I didn’t know Kathy had brothers. And, that book was intended for anyone at the dinner. It wasn’t person specific gift exchange and as she said on WWHL, that dictionary applied to all of them and their, uh, unique use of the English language. Passive aggressive? That was Teresa and her dig about her brother moving, accented in pure Teresa fashion with her patented insincere a “god bless”, “to each their own” bullsh*t .

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I think the “insincere” applies to all of them, not just Tre. Ok, maybe not Rosie or Joe Guidice. Didn’t someone (Kathy?) say something like “make sure Teresa gets this present.”? I could’ve sworn…but admittedly I was not fully paying super close attention.

        • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

          Kathy DID say that.

          Also, I hate, hate, hate moving. My sister moves all the time and I say the same thing about her. It’s not passive aggressive. Also, everybody on BH said it about Kim.

  10. jezzibel says:

    Sums up the majority of the Housewives, and if the high-heeled wine holder fits.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Jack black is incredibly limber

      • chismosa™ says:

        Lainey have you never watched School of Rock ? Or High Fidelity?
        Bravo reairs SOR weekly on their movie days of no tv shows.
        It’s so good!

        Jack ROCKS.

        And the episode of will and grace where he plays a doctor. 😫😂

        Hope you are well, miss you around these parts. 😦
        😥

    I said this yesterday but no one was around. I hate the twins and I am not crazy about her parents either. I find them all over the top obnoxious and I think they are playing it up for the camera. Rino makes me sick..and I think that he makes Richie Walkie look like an officer and a gentleman.

    Amber’s tagline is confrontational. Who’s be trying to bring her down? And Dina’s tagline threatening. Supposedly the one’s that try to burn her zen out aren’t on the show do why is she coming w/a chip on her shoulder? Boy oh boy I’m glad I just read NJ blogs now. Ice said take NJ off. Take NJ off.

    • T-Rex says:

      The ratings have sucked so far, so maybe they will. Folks are blasting the show all over the web, mostly they are blasting ConvictFelonLyinTeresa and her husband ConvictFelonLyinGorilla, but they are calling the new girls B-O-R-I-N-G. I didn’t see this fire drill stunt, but OMG this has to be the one of the most contrived scenes on a Ho-wife show, everyone is blasting that scene as so fake! If Bravo thought these newbies would be the “new direction” for the sure, they thought wrong I guess.

      • Exit4 says:

        They ratings were down-but even at 2.1 million it’s second only to Atlanta. And ones if bravos highest rated shows overall. And by far gets the most viewer feedback. It’s still a huge show across the board. See what happens this week-I’m sure Simon is anxiously awaiting the overnight numbers!

        They killed jersey the last 3 seasons with that family BS. People lost interest long before the indictments. But with that, basically a new cast, the timing of the show (summer Sunday), it’s on too early, the new women live an hour away from the others which makes it disjointed. As the season moves forward and drama starts to happen-it’ll get better. I like the new season. I like the new ladies. It’s better then the last few years. But nowhere near as good as seasons 1 and 2! OC, BH or NY will go before jersey.

        • T-Rex says:

          Thanks Exit, I don’t watch but follow here on the blogs, the newbies didn’t seem boring from the wonderful blog, but what do I know. I am sure Simon is licking his chops waiting with baited breath, anything to take down a Bravo show is his cup of tea! I couldn’t imagine that Wacky-Jac-Daniels and DonCarotheClown and her entourage of babies, would be better than the newbies. It was odd timing on the show though, to be on in the middle of the summer, however I think it was Bravo’s intention to air this to coincide with the ConvictFelonJuicy’s sentencing, they didn’t count on it being delayed. Just my opinion but it is awful suspicious don’t ya think

          • chismosa™ says:

            I still personally IMHO think Tree-Felon is helping bring the show down.
            You know, the nightmare they were suddenly placed into and have no idea how they got there and WHY THEM!?!!!! Why god why!!!!????

            I have read all, ALLLL the comments you refer to online about the felon-ice-s as well TRex. People are not too happy.
            But I’m sure some are willing to give to the help Tre-fund and buy her garbage. Smdh. 😁

            • T-Rex says:

              I don’t think folks are buying her garbage any longer either, according to a website that tracks book sales, her last book only sold around 6 thousand copies(5920 is what they listed, from May of last year through January of this year). The sales of that Fabellini crap, and the hair crap are down tremendously as well, so much so, the Actual owner of the Hair care line has been hinting around that he may drop her endorsement contract. Now, on the drink and hair stuff, she is only the spokesperson and doesn’t make a whole lot of money shilling these products. I am not sure why she is writing another book unless she has a contract to do so, and I can’t imagine a publishing house agreeing to publish the book given her book sales have plummeted in the last year.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                I got the Milana argan oil when they had that special when you just had to pay shipping and handling. I have to say it’s VERY good, even one of my girlfriends mentioned it an commented on how smelled good, as some other brands smell like dirty deep fryer oil.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  Good to know. Maybe I’ll see if I can get some of that. I am a fan of Argan Oil. Gives my old hair a more youthful, healthy look and feel. Soft vs. Wiry.

                  • chismosa™ says:

                    Lainey my go-to/ as it is THE ORIGINAL >>>>is “Moroccan Oil” – blue bottles.

                    They even came out with a “light” oil for people who find the original formula too heavy on their hair. My friend with super thick red curly hair finds the original too heavy for her. For me it’s glorious.

                    My mom’s been asking to use it and I keep telling her her hair’s too thin for it.
                    It’s like 75$ a bottle but lasts FOREVER and is my gold standard.
                    Then I found out it’s not from morocco 😦
                    I wanted to support Moroccan products. 😪

                    But i still sort of kind of buy it at times.
                    Everyone and their mom and dogs comes out with argon and or / other blend of oils.

                    No one delivers like the original to me.

                • T-Rex says:

                  Wow sad to see the sales go down on a good product. From what I read the Owner of the company has a contract with her, and doesn’t want to fight a lawsuit for Breaching the Contract, so as soon as it’s up he is probably not going to renew it. He also hinted that IF she gets jail time they will re-think the contract breach. I am sure he has something in there about conduct, or I would hope so.

              • MM in OC says:

                Don’t rag on the hair products. They are awesome and they last forever! I bought a set over a year ago and I still have some left. I like it!

                    The website is still there. I’m sure a Youthful 8 can just rebrand if they have too. I love the protein serum. Am totally addicted now.

          • Exit4 says:

            I think that’s why it came on so late too. It usually starts in May. I guess they wanted the resolution to the real life drama so they could plan PR wise etc. I also think they were hoping that whatever happens at sentencing would draw people in to see everything leading up to it. I hate the 8 pm time. The only reason I really got to sit and watch was because it wasn’t nice yesterday and we came home from the shore early and everyone was bathed, fed, Monday prepped and occupied by 8. Not normally the case! I usually half watch until the later showing.

            The new ladies are better then Jac and Caroline in the sense that it’s not the same old same old. But as viewers showed with NYC-they beg for cast changes, get them and then complain or tune out before it even gets moving. The New York cast (minus 3) is great-but no one is watching.

  14. Good Morning everyone! Sorry Ladebra about your boss. So young. Hope they get it all. I just read the blog from last night’s chat. Exit4 husband is hilarious. You all were in great form last night. I did not watch but will try and catch up tonight. Have a great day!

    • Exit4 says:

      I think add some of his commentary every week. It’s the only HW show he watches. But he may watch NY with me tomorrow-he saw the leg preview and he’s intrigued!

      If anyone us looking for a good show to watch-Wednesdays 9 pm on WE. It’s called The Divide. It’s very good!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Jesus this is the one where the pres from scandal is on, I heard about it – I like the premise, sad ! But I have ENDLESS shows now! You’d think it’s October or something !

        – The Strain- surprisingly I loved it, spooky, The Leftovers, The Bridge, falling skies (ughh, I suppose blah blah), masters of sex, under the dome (still lame but still following) and I know I’m forgetting something.

        Then Breaking Bad is starting up soon in huge increments and Id like to dvr that. Dammit !!! My head 🙇🙇🙇🙇

        At least no more multi housewives for me once NY is done and LEGS ARE THROWN 👢👢🌀🌠💨💨

        • Exit4 says:

          He’s not on it (fitz from scandal) but he created it. DVR it-it’s so worth it. It’s only about 8 or 10 episodes. It’s set in Philadelphia and I wasn’t sure what to expect from WE (I usually watch will and grace repeats and law and order-on there-so I saw the previews 1000 times and had to watch) but it’s really, really excellent! And it moves along-very much like scandal-you know there’s more to the story, but they don’t leave you hanging-you get almost immediate payoff and you can’t wait to see what’s next! I don’t usually put out show recommendations unless it’s good-and this is good!

          • T-Rex says:

            Crap(it’s my word of the day apparently), there are so many new shows, like Chis said! We are currently watching

    ladebra, I will keep your boss in my prayers – she is blessed to have you for support – hope it all goes well –

    I don’t like the new girls – at all – and yes they are playing it up big time for the camera – and what kind of fool gets on national tv and lets the world know that she did not want children because she thought them to be “disgusting” – hello? – are you not aware that your children will – not might – will – hear that? oh, right – it’s a housewife show……pathetic –

    and no, the peace between Mel and Tre is for show only – watch their eyes – they have gotten better on camera hiding their true reactions, but not that good – as for the newbies – worst actresses ever!

    thanks for the blogs!!!

    *hugs everyone on the blog really hard*

    • ladebra says:

      Thanks Shamrock. Here’s hoping she get’s a clean bill of health and they get it all. that’s would be great.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I picked up on that too,…the Mel and Tre hate is still there. Kathy and Richie were also holding back their true feelings. Somebody said instead of calling it the cousin dinner, they should have called it the fame ho dinner. So correct! I’m sure they were excited about getting some camera time.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        It was Rebecca aka REEBS! It was REEBS who said it should have been the fame whore dinner! On the nose, REEBS!

      • I have to say I think Rosie is very sincere…maybe I want to believe that, but I do feel she is sincere when she expresses herself. I think Kathy is another story…with Richie chirping in her ear I imagine it is very hard for her to try and move forward. I do think that the “family” is sincere when expressing their concern regarding the legal issues (although I was creeped out by Me-go saying she wished she could be “more up Tre’s butt” with regard to supporting her…just weird!)

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I agree about Rosie, that’s why I didn’t mention her.

          I’m sure they are all partly concerned, partly not so much. There has been a lot of animosity between them throughout the years and they are only human. But being on camera, I suspect, makes them want to show their more sympathetic side. Plus it doesn’t hurt that they are on TV again. Even if it’s only for that one scene (I hope). They are proud of that (being on t.v.).

          Rosie blasted a critic the other day on twitter saying something like “at least I was on the show, what have you accomplished.” (Paraphrasing). I don’t dislike Rosie, I am just pointing out that it seems being on TV is a big accomplishment for them, or at least, based on her twitter reply, for her. I think the tweet she was responding to was meanly celebrating the castmembers who had been cut. I, personally, wish Rosie was still on the show. Rosie makes for fun reality when she’s not with her passive aggressive sister and raunchy brother-in-law.

  16. Exit4 says:

    I’m sorry for being a nit picker lol! But the school lexis got into-Salve Regina-isn’t in Virginia. It’s a catholic university in Newport, Rhode Island. I’ve been to Newport a few times (for you non north easterners-it was the summer home of the wealthy back in the gilded age. Amazing mansions) and the campus is gorgeous. Amazing views. A little isolated though-but a cool place to go to school! Newport is also where Jackie Kennedy married JFK-their estate was called hammersmith farm. And it’s also where Claus Von Bulow allegedly poisoned his wife Sunny-Jeremy Irons played him in the movie Reversal of Fortune. I saw the home (Claredon Hall) but it’s not part of the tours. It’s privately owned. All of the Vanderbilt homes are on the tour-including the famous Breakers. Incredible. The Astors home where the first Mrs Astor created the 400-a list that still exists and one Sonja Morgan may have been on-but not anymore-try as she may! Oh-and for anyone who remembers the old show Dark Shadows-the home they used is also in Newport. I saw that as well-but it’s not open to the public. It’s actually part of Salve Regina-where Lexi was accepted. And that concludes my boring lesson of the day! 🙂

    • T-Rex says:

      Exit, love love love this! Very interesting and informative! I love history!

      We know that DiabolicalDina is a Dolt, how do you not know the college STATE of where your daughter was accepted. Crap, she didn’t even know how old she was when she married Two-Timing-Tommy, according to her math she would have married him prior to getting pregnant with Lexi.

      • Exit4 says:

        If you ever get a chance to get up around here for a vacation-it’s a really cool place-so much history. The wealthy would sail-normally from NYC up to Newport to summer. They’d send some of the staff ahead-with their china and silver and other items, so when they got there, it was like home. At breakers-they told us a story about Gloria Vanderbilt and her siblings and cousins using silver serving trays to “sled” down the main stairs. Their bathtubs could use tap or salt water. Plus the family histories of alcohol abuse and total dysfunction. They do a live action play sort of thing at the Astor House-less grand then the gilded age homes-and everyone told the guy who played John Jacob Astor-don’t get on the ship!!! Meaning Titanic, where he died. The guy from the Young and the Restless played him in the movie. The tennis hall of fame is there as well-Americas cup sailing and a very famous jazz festival. I’m almost jealous of Lexi! If you ever travel-you’d enjoy Newport!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          It’s now On my bucket list, lady

        • T-Rex says:

          How cool, I think we visited there as kids, but I don’t remember. I can totally see why Lexi would want to go to NYU, who doesn’t want to be a kid in college in Manhattan with mommy and daddy(mainly daddy) paying your bills. However, Newport Rhode Island sounds like a fabulous place to also go to school, small but committed to their students with lots of neat stuff all around, plus not to far from the parents, just a train ride away. I did hear though that she did choose a school in NYC but it wasn’t NYU

        • Powell says:

          I love that history too. Yes Eric Braeden aka Victor Y&R aka John Astor in Titanic. 😀

I was talking about Shonda Rhimes new show How to Get Away With Murder, Viola Davis will play a lawyer/law professor who has her students figure out murders. I love Reversal of Fortune. I watch it every time it’s on. Glenn Close was excellent and I think that’s when I fell in love w/Jeremy Irons as an actor. I haven’t seen him in anything that he wasn’t excellent.

    Good afternoon everyone! I forgot that I watched Game of Crowns last night. It is like a bad car accident that you just can’t turn away from. Nick the husband is an out of control asshole.

    At the pageant last night the contestants had to bring the husband’s up on stage and introduce them. Well Nick the cop is about a foot shorter than his wife Lea (sp?). It was bust a gut hilarious. The other Mrs. America’s in the audience had a field day with it and he went ballistic IN FRONT OF HIS YOUNG DAUGHTER no less. Security had to calm him down.
    We now know that Nick the cop bit the ear off of another husband at an event last week. Talk about issues.

  18. Powell says:

    Tre says the family doesn’t function w/o Joe. Funny how that hasn’t seemed to be important before. That’s why they are were they are. Apollo too. It’s just sad for the kids and extended families. Why can’t people that think greed and illegal activities are the way think about the “what if’s ” before they set a foot wrong. Sighhhhh. 😯

    • T-Rex says:

      Because selfish, narcissistic, greedy buggers think they are above the law and that they will never get caught. They don’t give two craps for the rest of their family because it’s all about “me me me me and me” in their world. That’s why those kids are doomed, sorry but it’s a fact, none of these Convicted Felons have changed their ways, and probably never will.

    I don’t get why Shannon is soooooo mad at Heather but not really mad at Tamra?? It’s doesn’t make sense to me and it makes Shannon look extra nutty!!

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I don’t get most of it…and especially why can’t Vicki brush her hair?!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I never understood Vicky’s aversion to hair brushing? What’s wrong with a good brushing??? Why so messy??? So many questions about Vicky and that sad hair!!!

    • Amalfi says:

      Shannon already chose who her enemy was … and Heather was kind of short with her in her Heathery kind of way — so that just clinched it for Shannon who is so unstable anyway. The snakes are always harder to figure out… which is what Tamra has going for her.

      This season has to be so embarrassing for her but last week on WWHL, she sure showed no remorse even after Andy held her feet to the fire a couple of times.

      • Amalfi says:

        I also dont believe the Dubrows wanted to take down anyone. They are so narcissistic they wouldnt bother But I do 100% believe Tamra said they did and then left Shannon to hang herself.

        I was feeling sorry for Tamra, but now I am just looking forward to her comeuppance.

        PS — watch all the sneaky little comments she makes about Eddie this season. She is just creating a “I figured he was gay all along” storyline when (and yes WHEN) they get divorced.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Shannon seems to be a “right” fighter-which I get as I am one too-but she lets little things get in the way. She should have let Tamra have it and then just give some shame to Heather by saying something like “Heather I thought you were above gossiping about someone’s marriage”…but since we all know Shannon brought her marriage problems to the show she really doesn’t have a solid leg to stand on in this whole mess. She is making every rookie mistake in the book!!

  23. How the hell did they get that limo in the driveway? Tamara is just a bit%h. Pisses me off how she hurts everyone around her and does not care. Now they are all toasting? To what? Driving someone fragile to lose her mind?

  24. NJBev says:

    if course Tamra is going blame the “alcohol”

  25. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Tamra is a liar-and a shitty liar to boot!!! She totally told Shannon that Terry said that and she’s trying to play all of us! Now she’s going to try to make it look like Shannon is crazier than she really is!!! Tamra is the worst person!!!!

  30. Crazy thing about Vicki and Brianna is that they are the same. They are attracted to dominate and controlling men. That is why Donn and Vicki did not make it in their relationship. IMHO

    • NJBev says:

      good point-

    • chismosa™ says:

      To dominant men?

      And I thought – from reading here – that Vicki is the type A in control one — who emasculates her men.
      Interesting. It’s like the theory that the dominant people IRL don’t want to be that way in sexual relationships – they want just the opposite. And the quiet insecure ones want to dominate sexually.

      I have to analyze this Vicki !

  45. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Excuse me, but OC and LOL women – when you are asked to leave someones party – or announce you’re leaving
    LEAVE ALREADY!

    I think Tamra is putting on a good show (as good as it gets) because things in her own private life are not going well. (eddie)

      Boston
      I hope I’m not being too nosy, but
      I’m not around everyday, and I was wondering
      how your engagement is going?
      Have you set a date yet?

      • boston02127 says:

        Everything is going well. I was having a hard time with everything because I felt the need to honor my mother in every part of the wedding and reception. It was sad for me and nothing was exciting. I wasn’t looking forward to anything. I was crying over every decision that I made. I wanted an empty chair in the front of the church with a dozen roses on the chair. After the wedding I wanted 100 white balloons let go outside the church. I wanted her favorite poem read at the wedding. It was just too hard to do. So we change things up.
        We’re getting married at the Cape. Friends of my grandparents offered us their home (thanks to my grandmother) on the ocean and very pretty. They have a white gazebo looking over the ocean. It’s going to be small, (48). We have the caterer, tent, invitations, music and the cake ordered. I have my dress and my fiancé has a week off. We still need to do the flowers and a few other things. After the wedding we are going to stay at the Cliff House in Maine for 4 days.
        This is why I haven’t been looking too hard for a job, I’m afraid to tell an employer that I need a week off.

        I will be Mrs Boston by the fall. 🙂

          Thanks for asking, it feels good to let it out!!!!

        • BB says:

          Your wedding plans sound great, Boston. My oldest daughter did something very similar. Got married on the beach. Only 50 guests. It was lovely. Just right.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Sounds like a perfect wedding Boston-I’m glad you shared all that!! Changing things up is the best idea sometimes!!

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          Boston – Thanks so much for sharing with us how you evolved to come up with such a beautiful arrangement for your wedding day!

        • chismosa™ says:

          Boston this sounds amazing!

          I’m sorry I hadn’t asked because — I knew things were hard to work at without your mom and more for you I could not feel; but also I didn’t know how soon you were doing it and didn’t want to intrude.

          It sounds perfectly lovely! The water the water the water!

          My BFF got married in July and they went to Maine — I wonder if that’s where she went.

          God bless you and all health and happiness

        • chismosa™ says:

          Ps don’t worry about the work thing— can’t you tell them this upfront ? I don’t think 1 week is a big deal.

          Though, enjoy time off !

        • Sounds perfect. Really lovely!

        • Teb2350 says:

          Sounds beautiful!!!!! So happy for you. Sorry you struggle with the mom part of it. Love you sweet girl!

  47. Really Boston is right. When Tamara was crying you could not see the whites of her eyes. Too much botox. Really bizarre. Something out of a horror film. Crazy thing is Heather is married to a plastic surgeon but looks the best of all of them but not obvious. I would trust Terry and Paul to do work on my face.

  48. NJBev says:

    A FLAWLESS 6 CARAT RING!!!!!!!!
    her boy was hiding some serious $$$$$$$

  49. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    “The ladies new threw her a baby shower” GOOD! 😆

  50. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Lizzie, RHOOC on WWHL and Juliet from LOL

  51. NJBev says:

    Andy is ripping Tamra a new one on WWHL

    • chismosa™ says:

      Is Lizzie the only one on?

      Or is it like Andy to mix up and MSNBC/NBC or CBS ex-colleague (intelligence in other words) with a random housewife!

      Andy must love Tamara. All the crap she does for him.

      Like Ramona. Not like Teresa because i think he blatantly doesn’t care for her.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Did you see Juliet’s expression of disbelief after Andy played the reel of Tamra’s reactions to Ryan getting married?! So real.

  52. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Very Ackward WWHL. I know these women have not been on this show before, maybe never been around Andy either.

    So Lizzie dated Nick Leshay (sp) pre and post Jessica Simpson and she was VERY embarrased that Andy brought it up.

    Juliet is awful at answering interview questions.

  53. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Lizzie said she and Tamra are not on good terms. They just shot the reunion and it didn’t end well.

  54. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    The Mazel went to Kenya for pulling out a crazy recover from a fall on stage. Would love to link that, but time for bed….. It’s on TMZ
    G’Night!

  55. Exit4 says:

    Chismosa-love the sister act! Salve Regina-means holy queen. Aka Mary. All those church songs are drilled in my brain! All those years of catholic school! The sisters of mercy-who taught me-run that school. And I’m telling you, every nun I had carried a guitar and used it! Always singing. When I go to church now-if the kids aren’t on their PHONES they don’t know the mass at all. We would have been clobbered!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Yeah I did 12 years catholic school and don’t remember this song at ALL!

      They allow kids with phones at church ? Oh my ….
      😦
      (I haven’t been to a catholic mass in a long time, it was enough seeing shorts and jeans allowed….. but phones!? ! :0 😳)

  56. NJBev says:

    “Shannon is an alcoholic because she drinks straight vodka”

    Tamara, you ignorant slut.

    BTW. Thank you Shannon for teaching me how to order my Vodka!!
    Grey Goose neat, soda on the side. Genius. You wanna know why??
    Because they can’t cheat you out of what you pay for.
    If you order vodka soda, they give you soda with a splash of vodka.
    When you order the vodka neat, they have to give you the WHOLE shot,
    not diluted by the ice or soda, and you drink far less and PAY far less!
    Thank you, Shannon Beadora (sp) for showing me the correct way to
    order a drink.

  57. No offense to anyone, but why the huge disgust for Teresa getting her hair and makeup done? Did anyone think that BRAVO is 99% more than likely paying for it?? Just like when then Kardashians are filming and go on vacations, eat, parties, get their make up done etc…E! pays for it ALL. I’m sure its the same for the ones like Nene, Teresa, Lisa Vanderpump etc. Even Kim Zolaick with her show. The network pays for everything.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hey girl —- I think she has more people at her beck and call than the others.
      Why choose to air only her getting her makeup and hair done?

      Plus remember the big argument a couple yrs ago when Tre was mad that Melissa started using her hair or makeup gal. So this likely goes back pre-HWs.

      Yeah I’m sure they help to pay. Which in turn makes it disgusting the money she’s making from the network.

      College funds and trusts I’m sure are going to be her next thing she says she’s doing with any money.

      • Orson says:

        If it does come out of Teresa’s pocket (or other HWs either), they can deduct it as a business expense.

    • Laineylainey says:

      I didn’t chime in on that one as I was not disgusted by it. I was, however, disgusted by Dina’s tiny hat, perched atop her noggin. If it doesn’t fit, don’t wear it. It suits her daughter’s age better anyway.
