This week begins with Joe and Melissa. They are beginning a garbage company, apparently invest “a lotta, lotta” money in it. Melissa doesn’t seem to think it was a wise investment of all of their money. She asks if its regular garbage trucks, and Joe says that the trucks are very expensive. They are bright blue. We learn that they aren’t regular garbage trucks – they are special document disposal trucks. I work for a court, so I’m familiar with these. We have someone come to our office almost weekly to properly dispose of confidential documents. Joe says that he invested more than he told Melissa. He plans to put-off the house building. Oh yeah, I’m sure that’s going to make her happy. Melissa is so ready to be out of their “tiny house.” You know, the one that’s way bigger than mine.
At Amber’s house, her son is playing with a glass at the table and making up rhymes or something. Her family is old-school and believes in the kids being polite and respectful. Apparently this includes doing push-ups for misbehaving at the table. Sounds to me like they’re way too focused on how their kids appear to the world. They are making another family-oriented commercial for her husband’s company. They’re going to have the kids play loan officers in the new commercial. Not sure if that’s a good marketing strategy. I wouldn’t want a loan company that makes jokey-commercials, save that for the car sales commercials.
They’re taking pictures for the new cookbook at Teresa’s house, but Milania isn’t cooperating. I heart this girl! Milania is my favorite so far this season, lol. That kid tells it like it is. She is terrorizing the crew – calling everyone a butthole. Amber and Melissa are in the car, presumably going to Teresa’s tea-party event. Amber thinks that they have some unresolved issued, but she’s glad to rekindle the friendship with someone she knew before cancer. She asks Melissa about the twins, but Melissa hasn’t talked to the twins much. Amber says that she hasn’t talked to them since they crashed her party. You’re not crashing if you’re invited. They talk about Nicole’s divorce. Amber doesn’t want to be a gossip, but she tells Melissa that she heard that Nicole broke up a family, rather than Nicole’s husband cheating on her. This girl is jumping right in to the gossip, drama, and backstabbing!
Dina arrives. She can’t remember a calm moment at Teresa’s house. The event is a small group of friends and family to test the products. They introduce Amber to the kids. Melissa is Gabriella’s godmother and Dina is Audriana’s godmother. Dina is amazed that Teresa is still such a good mom and hostess, while she’s in so much turmoil. Dina is asked by the producers if she’s closer to Teresa than to her own sister (assuming Caroline) and she says that she isn’t answering that. I was impressed that she chose not to go there, though I shouldn’t be surprised since neither of them has commented on their feud. Ugh! I want to know what happened! Teresa has the ladies blindfolded and they taste some of the food. Amber takes a moment to apologize to Teresa if she was offended by anyone at her party. Teresa says that they’re working to get through it and are being strong for the kids. Amber is touched and emotional watching Teresa with her kids. She tells Teresa that she survived breast cancer and understands the need to keep your kids close in a difficult time. Dina isn’t buying it. Amber barely knows Teresa but is getting overly emotional about Teresa’s situation. It was overkill to me.
Teresa and Juicy are having dinner with the twins at Angelo’s, one of Rino’s restaurants. Teresa A. likes Teresa, even though people say that she’s dumb. They are impressed that Teresa has several cookbooks. Teresa thinks that it’s good for Juicy to get out of the house. He asks Nicole and Bobby when they’re getting married. They’ve only been together for eight months. Nicole is tired of people asking where her relationship is heading; she just wants to let things take their course. Teresa A. brings up the legal drama, offering any help that the Giudice’s may need. Rino says that they just met and want to support them. Teresa is happy that they have people around them to support them. The guys invite Juicy to a guys’ night with Rino, Bobby, and Amber’s husband. It seems like it was a nice, low-key, no-drama dinner. Rino really got on my nerves in the first episode, but he was a little more laid-back and likable in this scene.
Melissa meets Amber for lunch. The two were young and partied together. Melissa explains that they are supposed to be building a new house. Amber makes a comment about women’s independence – she likes being a wife. Cut to Amber’s house, where things are chaos. Bobby, Nicole’s boyfriend, arrives. Bobby brought the kids some McDonald’s, which Amber doesn’t let them have. He also makes them milkshakes with non-organic milk. The horror! Jim is the disciplinarian in the house, but is more laid-back with the kids’ food. At dinner, Amber and Melissa talk careers. Amber has done several commercials, so she’s an actress. Amber says that having cancer made her realize how important family is. Melissa tells Amber that she didn’t know. Amber says that she can’t imagine how Melissa didn’t know, and that she wrote Melissa off. The two agree that they lost touch for some reason, but they are now moving on. Back at the house, Bobby tells Jim about the guys’ night out. Jim notes that Juicy and Joe fight all of the time, and he doesn’t want to be involved in that. Jim is the president of a bank and is involved in fraud investigations, so he can’t be around someone who was indicted for mortgage fraud. I don’t blame him, he doesn’t need to be associated with that.
Dina visits Lexi at work. I’m so glad that Lexi is back on the show. I couldn’t take any more scenes of Dina and her cats. Lexi got an email from NYU. She did not get in on early admission. From what I remember, there’s still a chance she’ll get in on regular admission though. I remember how stressful college admissions were. Lexi says that it’s hard to know that a group of people didn’t see her as good enough. Dina has a gift for her; it’s a snake bracelet to represent strength and change.
It’s guys’ night out. Richie and Rosie join them for bowling. She hopes that it’ll take Juicy’s mind off his troubles. Rino loves Rosie instantly. Juicy asks where Jimmy is and Bobby answers sort-of-honestly. He says that Jimmy was nervous to be around them because they fight. Joe is offended because he’s a straight-up, clean-cut guy. Yeah, right! Bobby is having a party to celebrate and honor first-responders. After Hurricane Sandy, he was so moved by the first responders that he went to the academy and joined them. This must be the party from previews, where all of the drama starts.
Dina has a medium/psychic at her house. He has a comforting way of letting people what’s going to happen and he talks to dead people. He tells Dina that she’s going through great change and will not live in the house next year. I could have told her that. Teresa is coming over and James is going to read her. He already knows about the legal drama. Teresa immediately likes James’ bright greeting. He tells her that she’s in a legal dispute. He asks if she’s thinking of moving, which she knows nothing about. Teresa doesn’t want to have to move. She gives James some photos to read. James asks if Juicy’s father has passed on. That’s kind of creepy. Juicy carries a lot of responsibility on his shoulders. James thinks that Teresa won’t go to jail, but he isn’t sure about Juicy. He will definitely do some time or pay restitution. Teresa is trying to focus only on the good and be strong. She wants to know why this is happening to them. Umm, because you committed numerous bank crimes! This isn’t something that just happened out of the blue! Take some responsibility!
Melissa meets the twins for some shopping. She tells the twins that the guys had fun bowling. Nicole tells Melissa that Jimmy didn’t go because he was scared of Juicy and Joe fighting. She also tells Melissa that Jimmy didn’t want to be with Juicy because of the legal troubles. Melissa is pissed that Amber’s husband is talking badly about her family. Melissa thinks that Amber has changed since she knew her before. Nicole says that she doesn’t know why Amber wanted to be friends with Melissa when she had talked so badly about her. Melissa says that she wants to be honest with the twins, so she tells Nicole that Amber was talking about her former marriage and wrecking a family. Nicole denies it. Melissa says that she wanted to give Nicole the opportunity to explain herself, if it was true. I think she may have wanted to stir up drama, though she’s playing it off like she knows how it feels to have rumors spread about you. Nicole and Teresa A. decide to go to Amber’s house immediately. Not what I would have done and a slight over-reaction in my opinion. Immediate confrontation is never a good idea. Teresa A. doesn’t even have time to take off the clothes she was trying on. This is not going to end well.
In the car, Nicole isn’t thinking and is very worked up. They don’t understand why Amber would make something so horrible up. Teresa A. says that they should wait until Bobby’s party to confront Amber. Nicole doesn’t want to have confrontation in front of the kids. Why would you confront her at your boyfriend’s party? Is that really the best time and/or place?
Don’t Be Tardy
S3E3 “Making The Cut”
Last week, there were baby baths in the kitchen with lots of discussion and action taken on getting help in the home. It’s bath time again in grand central station, for the 3 month old twins. Everyone seems to migrate to the kitchen, except Brielle. Kroy is bathing Kaia and Kim is up next with Kane.
Kim complains that she’s not feeling good, feels like she has cramps. Kroy asks if it’s her time and she said, it should be, but it’s not happening. Kim goes to the doctor and he takes a look with an ultrasound. She’s not pregnant. The cramps could be from ovulation and even though she’s late, he suggests she wait it out.
Back at the house, Kroy is in the home gym doing physical therapy exercises for his Achilles tendon and Kim joins him to complain about how she looks (insert eye roll here). How she needs to work out (insert laughter here) and she wants her boobs back up to here and her stomach flat (don’t we all!). She wants the old Kim back. She asks Kroy what are they going to do about birth control and before he can answer, she says that once she gets her boobs and tummy done, she will kill a bitch if Kroy gets her pregnant. She wants Kroy to have a vasectomy and there is some playful talk between the two that has to do with his private parts.
Ariana is twelve and boy crazy. She spies the new pool boy and rushes to brush her hair and get out by the pool. Lana spies Ariana flirting with the pool boy and tries to get her to stop, of course, she doesn’t listen, because she’s twelve! Lana runs like a little girl, hollering to Kim “Ariana’s flirting!” Kim rushes out and rounds her up her daughter and compliments the pool boy on a good job. Kim didn’t want him to feel awkward as she was basically dragging Ariana away by the arm.
Kim’s best friend of fourteen years, Jen stops by the house for a visit. Jen is pregnant for the first time and Kim says since Jen was there for five of her pregnancies she wants to return the favor. So what does Kim do, but open a bottle of wine. Way to be there for your friend and don’t forget the Solo cup, because those wine glasses, sometimes stink. I still have not figured out how that’s possible. Maybe Kim didn’t wash them! Kim gives her friend the sound advice to have her nipples sucked before the pregnancy and well, needless to say, that’s what Kroy did. I tell you, these two are perfect for each other.
When the new maid was there in the last episode and Jen arrived in this episode, it’s been noted about the Christmas trees STILL being up. I don’t know the time, but obviously, Kim can’t let go of the damn tree!
Kroy is now headed to have a vasectomy and Kim drives him home. He seems fairly drugged and uncomfortable, probably not only from a surgery of this nature, but his brilliant idea to wear denim pants. They settle him in the man cave, in his denim pants, of course, with a blanket on top. Kim is laid out on the couch moaning that she is finally having her time of the month and it hurts.
Lana has to care for the both of them and there is a lot of running up and down stairs. Kroy talks to Kim about snuggling naked and she can’t believe he’s thinking of that now. He tells her with a big grin “I’ll be good in a day”.
Tune in Thursday as the Biermann Bunch will load up in an RV bus headed for vacation in Destin, Florida.
