S6E3 Cast Blogs Blogged

By Namaste

Hey all!  Since this is my first time blogging here and I thought I would share a little about myself before I get started.  Many have seen me post as ‘The Story of Us Living with Autism’ in the comments and I have been a lurker and commenter for a long time.  I came to this blog many moons ago when it was all about “ She Who Must Not Be Named” and have enjoyed watching it grow (even after losing our fearless leader) into something so much bigger.  I am a HUGE Housewife Fan and am even thinking of entering a float into our local community days parade next year; The Real Housewives of Ohio.  We shall see.  Anyway, obviously from my “name” you have gathered that I have a child, a daughter, who has autism.  K was diagnosed at 2 ½ and this has been a long journey, but she is now 16, a sophomore in high school and a CHEER LEADER!  K is a twin and her brother, J, is a level 10 gymnast and he and I share a wicked sense of humor.  He has recently gotten his license and I have found myself with some extra time on my hands since I no longer have to drive him to practice!  I have been married for 20 years to my partner in crime.  He tolerates my addiction to all things reality TV and even knows the names of some of these loons.  So, without further ado, let’s get started!

Dina Manzo

Dina starts off her blog this week reminding us of her love for all her twitter and facebook followers.  She also explains how much she worries about her BFF TerEsa (not to be confused with TEReSA).  She explains why she has not been looking her best and attributes this all to food allergies, anemia and hormones.  She sounds like a hot mess.  I wish I looked like that kinda hot mess, but I digress.  She advises us to check out her after party so she can explain in depth how we can avoid all these issues simply by watching her video-blog.  Wow.  She is amazing.

OK now let’s jump right in to the drama… Amber did get under my skin by getting emotional in front of Audriana. Listen, I know Fabilinis were involved and she did seem genuine, but not in front of the kids please. I have resting bitch face to begin with, but I think you can all tell what I was thinking at that second. I’ll say it again and again, I am VERY protective of Teresa and her family right now.

I gotta agree with Dina here.  I thought the whole thing was contrived. I am suggesting we start a drinking game where everyone takes a drink when Amber brings up The Cancer (drink).  Also, how does having a possible fatal illness relate to what TerEsa is going through?  TerEsa and Juicy brought this all on themselves; it did not HAPPEN to them.  So, I think it is plain weird of Amber to try and relate…perhaps she should have brought up her hubby’s legal woes and “related” from that point of view?  Side note, none of these ladies mentioned Milania’s ATROCIOUS behavior during the photo shoot.  It looks as though Milania rules the roost and TerEsa lets her walk all over.  It was cute and adorable when she was younger.  Now it comes off as obnoxious and a little sad.  This will only get worse.

I wish I could wave a magic wand and take all the college stress away from Lexi. I know years from now we’ll be laughing at all of this, but for now it’s real and it’s scary. So many life decisions to make, and each one will impact us both in a huge way. I think it’s very different than when most children go off to college and are able to come home for holidays. I don’t even know where home will be by our next holiday. But hey, look at the bright side, we got awesome Bulgari bracelets out of the deal!

Is it weird or does she act like she is the ONLY single parent that has ever sent their kid to college?  I also think its weird how she talks about how close she and her daughter are and how this is just different from everyone else.  Sorry, we all want to believe that about our relationships with our kids, but I just don’t think it is true!  She is definitely a “friend” more than a “mom”.  As for the bracelets, I thought they were excessive for a “thinking of you and so sorry you didn’t get early acceptance into your college of choice” gift.  Maybe Hallmark just didn’t have a card, but a Bulgari bracelet with a snake on it says all of that.

James Van Praagh is a dear friend of mine. He was on tour in the area and we always make a point to get together since we live on different coasts. Can you believe he picked up on Joe’s dad? This was filmed months before he passed. It gave me chills to watch that whole scene. If you really listened to what he told Teresa, it’s quite a powerful statement: “There is a lesson in every situation, sometimes it just takes time to see the value in it.” We shall see… The Giudices will continue to remain on the top of my “prayer pile.” I adore them.

Why not mention the fact that the guy clearly said TerEsa is moving?  Where?  The pokey?  An apartment over the pizza shop?  Joey Gorga’s basement?  Not sure, but he was pretty clear about the moving.  If he got the “Joe’s dad is dying” thing I’m thinking he might be right about the moving.

She goes on to tell us about shit hitting the fan and such.  Sounds like the new girls know how to bring the drama and are going to earn that Bravo paycheck.  She advises we head over to her website.  You think she will finally just tell us what happened between her and Caroline over there on her website?  If not, I refuse to check it out!  Even if she promises I will look ageless after watching her video blog.  I won’t do it ’til she dishes the dirt.

Melissa Gorga

Melissa starts out her blog about the whole weird garbage/not garbage truck investment.  Seems super weird to me, but who am I?  I have only invested in what my 401k manager advises and have asked my dad to buy stock in Tampax and Kleenex.

I’m happy Amber and I were trying to get to know each other again, but at our dinner she couldn’t stop bringing up the fact that she had cancer and I didn’t know. I was trying my hardest to explain to her that if I knew I would have called. It just seems like she knows we both had “life” happen and didn’t stay in touch (neither of us called in years), but I’m willing to accept my part and I’m not sure if she is.

Hmmm, well, The Cancer (drink) happened and I am SHOCKED that Amber did not send out one of those long Christmas card letters detailing her Cancer (drink) experience.  I, like many of you, find it hard to make light of a person who has survived cancer (drink).  My dad, brother, maternal grandmother, fraternal grandfather, mother-in-law…all have battled cancer (drink therefore, I find little humor in Cancer (drink).  BUT, not one of the people I mentioned has ever once used the Cancer (drink) Card.  We all have friends that come into and out of our lives for various reasons.  This is normal for most.  Amber seems like a dog with a bone.  I have a feeling we will revisit this over and over and over and then rehash it at the reunion.

After Amber introduced me to her good friends, the twins, and then immediately seemed to have a lot of negative things to say about them, I started to realize that maybe Amber has changed. She told me on the way to my sister-in-law’s party that Nicole had broken a family, and it was weighing on my mind.

Yes, this is weird for the “Normal” world, but not reality world!  I am sure when Bravo hired Amber, they got the complete dish on every wrong that Amber thought had been done unto her by Melissa and the twins.

After hearing from the twins at the boutique that Amber had a lot of bad things to say about me and hearing them say Jim had a lot of negative things to say about my family (my husband and my brother-in-law), I just snapped. I brought her around my family, and I wasn’t going to let anyone start talking smack about their very serious case when the rest of us are all being so respectful to what their family is going through. At this point what Jim said is a game of telephone through Bobby and the twins, but I do want to be able to find out from Amber exactly what is going on.

OY!  Why do they all act surprised when they talk trash about each other?  I think the comment Amber’s dumb husband made was taken out of context/edited and then fed back to Joe Gorga, Juicy and the gang in tidbits.  I am not sure what Mr. Marchese does for a living.  I do know he has a questionable past himself so he should not be throwing bricks while living in his glass mansion.  (Hmmm, and cancer(drink) rears its ugly head in that past, too…)

I also wanted Nicole to be able to say whether or not Amber’s rumor was true in front of everyone. I really like the twins and think they are good people. It just didn’t feel right to have it out there and have people gossip about it.

That is just laughable!  You BARELY know these women and you are saying how very much you really like them.  Melissa just looks stupid(er).

‎You’ll just have to watch and see how it all plays out.

I take this as a warning…

Teresa Guidice

OK, before I get started I am hoping someone can help me!  I desperately want the earrings TerEsa has been wearing the last 2 seasons.  They are the long dangly ones and she wears them in interviews and during regular filming.  I am hoping to find a cheap knock-off pair.  Any help is appreciated.  And now for TerEsa’s (Heather’s) blog…

TerEsa (Heather) starts out telling us how happy she is and how she is enjoying her summer.  Yes, enjoying her summer, counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds to her court date where she will find out where she will be “moving” to in the next few months.  The Ostrich continues to try to convince us she is unfazed by everything and spends her time baking and doing watercolors.

At this point, I was still getting to know the new ladies on the show. Joe and I had a great time at Angelo’s with Teresa and Rino and Nicole and Bobby. I love the family portrait painted right on the wall! And it was very sweet of Amber to come to my dessert party and be so concerned for me. I do cry more easily now, especially when someone else is crying! They all have huge hearts, those girls.

Wow, this just seems “too nice”.  She is not calling BS on anyone.  Hmmm…

It’s been crazy watching Dina and Lexi get ready for college. Lexi was just a baby like yesterday! And in not too long I’m going to be doing the same with Gia… madonna mia, I can’t even think about it. Seeing Audriana when she was first born in Dina’s arms was incredible, and now she’s dancing all over the place. Where does the time go?

Blah blah blah…people do this every day.  Having a kid graduate and go to college is not a story line.

How did you like my Fabulicious Desserts party? I worked so hard on setting up the table, because I knew Dina was coming and I wanted to impress her. Everything is so scrumptious, I can’t wait for you to try it! Check out (blah blah blah) to order — we’ll keep adding more each week! And I’m putting another dessert recipe from one of my cookbooks (BLAH BLAH BLAH) up as well, my Holy Cannoli Cupcakes from Fabulicious! are on my website: (look it up if you want, but I am not giving her free advertising!  J )

Let’s just say there is no F-ing way TerEsa wrote this.  She cannot pronounce much less spell scrumptious.  Let me say this, I have the UTMOST respect for people that speak more than one language and I am mad that I wasted my time in high school taking 3 years of French and never using it.  I traveled to Guatemala many moons ago and I knew more Spanish from watching Dora than I had learned in those 3 years of wasted French.  BUT, if you are gonna put yourself on TV with your crappy, deconstructed English, don’t try to downplay your lack of knowledge of the English language.  Simply own it and don’t try to fool us into believing you know big words!

On a side note, I think it is really crappy that TerEsa wrote a dessert cookbook knowing full well this was Kathy’s one big thing!  Let’s say it, Kathy makes amazing looking desserts and everyone on the show that has ever tasted one looks like they are having an orgasm in their mouth.  But, TerEsa saw an opportunity to shit all over Kathy and she took it.  Not surprised.

Amber Marchese

Amber starts out her blog is a little psycho babble for TEReSA A. (she calls her Te-RESSA which is weird cause her name is spelled with one S, not two).  She goes on to say:

My faith teaches me “but I say to you who hear; love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” (Luke 6:27-28)

Oy vay.  Not another bible thumper who we need to introduce, “Pot, meet kettle.”

As far as your apology for calling my baby a “f—ing little kid,” I accept it and I always forgive. Shallow apology, but make no mistake, it does not change my feelings. It takes a special kind of —hole to call a child you know and have hugged “a f—ing little kid” for no reason. I find it a God send that we all got to see that, because that is the real Te-RESSA. 

Yes, I agree it was a not nice moment for TEReSA, but I didn’t think it was malicious.  She prob says it about her own kids.  LOL!

Neither Jim nor I have ever been judgmental of Joe and Teresa. At this point, we hadn’t even met Joe Giudice, and had only met Teresa once at our party. We knew of their situation, but still opened the invitation to them without regret.  

I call BS here.  NO ONE can say they are not judging the crap out of that situation.  I am sure this is PTA talk everywhere within a 30 mile radius of TerEsa and Juicy.

“The” Cancer (drink) yup, she totally started a paragraph off with this…

Yes, it must seem that I am really harping on my experience with cancer. At that time it was my five year mark and a very crucial time where there is a possibility of a relapse, and it was greatly weighing on my mind at this point. I was about to do my five year panel of testing to see if I was still healthy and cancer free. This was an extremely hard time and caused a lot of fear and anxiety. Anyone with a serious health condition can relate to this, especially those raising little ones.

As I mentioned, I have nothing but empathy for people who have fought and survived cancer (I feel the same for those that fought and lost their lives to cancer, too).  BUT, you don’t get to pull the cancer card (drink) at every dinner party.  I have a daughter with autism (um, drink?) and while most of my friends are very aware of this, it is not a constant topic of conversation.  Have I pulled the Autism Card?  Yeah.  Disney and other parks give passes to help kids who are differently-abled navigate amusement parks without having to stand in insane lines.  (We went to Universal the year the Harry Potter ride opened.  The line was SEVEN HOURS LONG and because of Kate, we walked right on.  Did I feel bad for all those other people?  A little…then I got over it.  My girl has enough struggles on her plate and a seven hour wait would have been like a fight with Ivan Drago (Rocky IV reference)…I digress.  Amber seems to bring every conversation back to The Cancer (drink) so that all eyes are on her.  Weird?

Melissa she is making my life easier but dividing her blog into topics…

I really enjoyed our night of drinks. I truly thought that we were on the right track of becoming good friends again. I was not “nit picking” as Melissa puts it, I was explaining to Melissa that I was glad she explained the reason for her not calling me. It never occurred to me that she did not know. I am really, really over this subject with her.

Liar, liar pants on fire.  I think this topic is gonna come up over and over.

The scene at the clothing store was by far one of hardest scenes to watch so far. I cannot even wrap my head around what I witnessed. We will start with Melissa. Melissa asked me in the car how the marriage ended for Nicole. LET ME REAPEAT THAT: MELISSA ASKED ME WHAT HAPPENED TO NICOLE’S MARRIAGE. I did not offer this information to her. I told her what others have repeatedly told to me. The account I told came to me from the family that Nicole allegedly did this to. I never had this conversation with Nicole. For the record, Nicole and I were never best friends, we knew one another in town, but got closer when Bobby started to date her. Te-RESSA and I never got that close; I was always more distanced from her. I felt like she had a lot of negative energy. 

I’m not above idle gossip.  Believe me, if you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit by me (Random movie reference.  5 points if you know which movie!)  I have been caught many times spreading something I heard about someone else.  BUT, if I was gonna pass along this tidbit I think I would have been a little more thorough.  She just shared this MAJOR juicy piece of gossip with another housewife.  Can she really be all that shocked that it blew up in her face?  Also, she shared this tidbit WITH cameras rolling!  HELLO!?  She goes on to reprimand Melissa for sharing this tidbit with Nicole.  Again, HELLO???  You just shared this info while being filmed so it is fair game now!  She also says Melissa is not a loyal friend.  Well, you knew that when she didn’t respond to your cancer (drink) post on FB!  Shit on me once, shame on you.  Shit on me twice, shame on me!

Amber goes on to spin her dumb husband’s comments about why he cannot hang out with Juicy.  I will again remind everyone that Jim Marchese has his own legal issues and I think he is equally as low as Juicy.  Other blogs have rehashed this already so google him and read for yourself.  This guy is not as clean as a whistle (although he may be as cool as cucumber!)

She closes by reminding us all that they are not reinventing the wheel and she appreciates us all (especially me now that I have taken multiple digs at her and The Cancer (drink)).

Teresa Aprea – who shall be known as TEReSA by me

She begins her blog by apologizing for her tardiness.  She posted her blog on Tuesday so not really “late” but nice to see she knows her job as the newbie to her blog in for all of us to re-hash.  She blathers on about how fun the Clubhouse and Andy Cohen were…we get it, he’s your boss.  You must suck up.

I loved watching our dinner with Joe and Teresa at Angelo’s with Nicole and Bobby — it was wonderful getting to know them better. I honestly think it was so good for them to get out and enjoy a night out on the town. I stand by what Nicole and I were saying on WWHL that sometimes when someone is going through a rough time in life, the best thing you can do is help them have a little fun and laugh and hopefully take their minds off of things. 

{snore} channeling my inner Vicki

In regards to Amber, all I can say is that you will continue to see her true colors and watch her unravel week after week. This chick is obviously off her rocker! I will not dignify her comments against Nicole by expounding upon her lies. Also I will be asking Teresa Giudice if she wouldn’t mind lending her dictionary to Amber so she can look up the word stalking. Amber evidently does not know the meaning of the word. Clearly my loyalty is with my sister, and I can’t help but defend her in next week’s episode against this ongoing drama storm that Amber has created. So next week’s first responder party at Bobby’s is definitely going to be explosive and in need of some first responders, LOL!

Seems as though casting has always managed to keep one loose cannon on each series.  It is episode 3 and I believe we have a winner. DING DING DING!  I wonder when the new girls join the show if they realize one of them will be bringing the crazy unintentionally?

Before I end my blog, I have to say how I absolutely loved seeing Rosie with my husband Rino and all the guys at the bowling alley! Rino took a liking to Rosie and all the hubbies from the start; they formed a bond from the beginning! Rino had a blast that night and it showed… I wished we could have seen even more of the fun that evening! Because when Rino came home, he had me hysterically laughing recapping the night with Rosie and all the guys!

I have to agree with her here.  I kinda love this Rosie.  She seems really level headed this year and healthy.  I am glad to see her more comfortable in her own skin.  Nice to see a group of guys just embrace her as “one of the guys”.  Personally, I would rather watch episodes of Rosie and Juicy doing dumb shit for 43 mins then some of this other crap they show us.

She ends by thanking us all.  She is still too new to all this to get how no one in the twitterverse is really her BFF.  She asks us to check out @abbeysAwareness on Twitter, which I did and I have followed her.  It looks like is a mom of a 6 year old girl battling a brain tumor.  I will support her every day of the week and twice on Sunday so give her a “follow”!

Nicole Napolitano

Nicole also posted her blog a little late, but does not apologize.  Hmmm…shall we contact the Countess to see what proper etiquette is in this situation? Blah blah blah.  She enjoyed her first time on WWHL.  Big deal.  I want my apology!

On this week’s episode I enjoyed watching us at Angelo’s. We all had an amazing dinner with the Guidices. It was a great night, which I wish you got to see more of, because we all shared some funny stories and laughed all night.


Again, I love seeing Dina’s relationship with her daughter. What a strong young lady Lexi is. She was so brave to open her acceptance letter for the world to see. 

STOP KISSING UP TO DINA!!!  Dina knows how fab she and her daughter already are and they don’t need your constant reminding.

The bowling night was cute, it was great to see all the guys with the one and only Rosie, whom I absolutely love! That is one real chick! Just as real as my boyfriend Bobby, who simply reiterated why Jimmy wasn’t there with the rest of the guys.

Again, I love the love for Rosie.  Now, as for Bobby, I have found in my many years on earth that men love juicy gossip just as much as us ladies.  Since many have short term memory issues anyway, they are not reliable when passing along gossip, but still they are entertaining.  Bobby seems like he will be our “Richie” for the season.  Watch and see.

Now let me get right down to it. I have to say, the cameras don’t lie! Truth and honesty will always prevail. I practice what I preach in life, and I’m a true example of that. I’m not perfect, but lead by my actions how people should be treated. Talk is cheap! This all relates back to Amber. I never thought I would be subjected to her garbage when we came into this as friends, but obviously Amber does not know the meaning of a true friend. I want to get this over with as quickly as possible because I can’t stand evil! I’m tired of all the lies. Again, I started this journey with you as my friend. I loved your family, especially precious Isabella and Corbin, who still make me melt when I watch them. I took Isabella to the pancake breakfast in town (and you didn’t usually let anyone take her somewhere without you), that was the level of trust we had with one another. You even had Isabella call me Aunt Nicole, which I loved! 

The Aunt Nicole thing is weird since Amber made it sound like they were just acquaintances in her blog.  My very good friends are called Aunt and Uncle by my kids, but acquaintances are called Mr. and Mrs.

Watching last week’s episode and now this one, you have turned on me from the very start, and I have never done one thing to you to warrant your horrific behavior! I still don’t know why you did. Attention? Drama? You couldn’t think of anything positive to bring to the table? 

Uh oh!  She is now writing her blog directly to Amber.  Nicole is serious!  She goes on to call out Amber for exaggerating the number of guests Nicole brought to the famous fall harvest event. Amber said 30, Nicole denies that high number.  Let’s say she had 7 couples/14 people.  Now, if Amber told her to invite people, then that is great.  If Nicole continued to invite people after giving her number of invitees, then that is crappy.  Enough said.  Weird though that you would ask an “acquaintance” to invite additional guests.  I would think you would only tell a close friend to bring more people?

Now this is the biggie that night after watching this week’s episode. I was shocked to hear that horrific lie you told Melissa for millions of people to see. You didn’t waste any time. Here I am thinking you are my friend, and from day one you have been my enemy! WOW! WOW! WOW! Disgraceful! You call yourself a Christian, yet the lies don’t end with you! Two things I despise in life are LIARS and HYPOCRITES! 

I gotta go with Nicole here.  I am not buying that Amber wasn’t a “close friend”.  A friend that Nicole would have assumed would not be spreading dirty gossip about her.  To make this accusation is BIG.  I live in a boring suburb, but if I heard of a “home-wrecker” you bet your bottom dollar it would be dinner conversation at every home for at least a week.  To put that out there on NATIONAL TV about your friend whom your daughter calls AUNT is really really crappy.

You were my friend to whom I opened up. I shared with you the reason why I got divorced. I shared with you how devastating that time in my life was and how hard it was for my children, but yet you never thought once about how they would have to hear this disgusting lie about their mother. How important the SANCTITY of marriage was to me and what it meant after being married fourteen years. How I despise women who break up a marriage. And leave it up to you Amber. That’s where you stooped. Could you get any lower than an ant’s ass?! I will answer that for you, Amber! No, you CANNOT! You have reached your absolute low. There is a God and HE is the one you will have to answer to one day, and before that you’ll have to answer to me at the reunion! 

WOW!  Nicole is really reading Amber the riot act.  Talking directly to another cast member is not very common on these Bravo blogs so I am kinda enjoying this very direct “calling out”.  I gotta say, Nicole is using some very strong language to defend herself.  If she did do what Amber said she did, people are gonna come out of the woodwork!

She goes on to talk about the angry car ride to Amber’s house.  How she chose not to create a scene in front of Amber’s kids (good choice).  She calls BS on Amber and told Amber to pray for herself…(hmmm, would Danielle misconstrue that as a threat?)

She closes by thanking all of us for their support (surely she means me cause I am now her biggest fan!)  She loves us.  All of us.  She promises to “keep it real”.

Ending on a positive note, I must say my new friend Abagail who is 7-years-old made my week! I’m so glad we had met and she is an absolute angel!

She ends with the above which I will assume references the little girl mentioned in TEReSA’s blog @abbeysAwareness.

Real Housewives Of New Jersey Tonight!

“A Hairy Situation”

Oh gosh, I hope this episode doesn’t have to do with Joey’s hair!!!  But seriously, the description said Nicole and her firefighter boyfriend, Bobby, decide to throw a “First Responders” themed costume party together. The party kicks off hot and heavy as Dina finds a hunky young man she may be interested in. But soon enough, the “First Responders Party” turns into a five-alarm fire when Nicole confronts Amber about the rumor she’s been spreading.

    Welcome to our new blogger! Namaste is the same person as our ‘Story Of Us Living With Autism’ who most of us are familiar with from the comments. I appreciate her contribution to Lynn’s Place! There was supposed to another new blogger, but it didn’t work out….so we’re just going to pick up on Episode 3 for the cast blogs.

  2. ladebra says:

    Namaste! I don’t read any of the blogs on Bravo any more, thank you for the recaps. Sooo much better than slogging through Bravo! 👏👏🌟

    I’m going to see A Most Wanted Man this afternoon. It looks like something I will enjoy. I like spy stories, and I really like most everything PSH did.

    It’s raining in SoCA! Yippee! Hope your Sunday is a fun day!

    • Powell says:

      Morning ladebra. Who’s in A Most Wanted? I can’t remember.

      • ladebra says:

        Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, William Defoe are who I remember. Hoffman plays like a German spymaster – story is an adaptation of a John let Carré novel. I am looking forward to seeing it.

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. The birds are chirping away so they’re having a great morning. I hope everyone is chirpy today.

  4. Orson says:

    That was a great first recap! Well done.
    I’d like to suggest for clarity and less typing, we 1) refer to Teresa the felon as Tre G and Teresa the twin as Tre A, and B) we refer to Tre G’s hubby as Joe and Tre G’s brother as Joey.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Orson, no offense but I find your suggestion super duper pooper scooper and infinitely more confusing than Namaste’s choice of monikers for the New Jersey Neanderthals. I was able to follow hers quite easily.

  5. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Hi Orson, have you seen an update on FB or elsewhere about Jeff since you last posted he would be transferred to another facility?

    • Orson says:

      I keep Orson’s FB account on my laptop and haven’t fired it up in a couple of days. I’m scanning now it now, but so far, there’s no additional news other than his sister is in communication with someone on the FB page.

      • Jan (TexasTart) says:

        Cusi posted here that she had contact with his sister, but it’s from earlier last week….Cusi’s without a computer which keeps her from posting here, but she said she can access FB on her phone. Thanks for checking FB for me!

    Fantastic Blog!!

    I am going to preface this comment that I am not a parent. But this next item is something that bugs the complete crap out of me.
    DiabolicalDina is a “Divorced” parent not a real Single Mother, and I hate when anyone man or woman implies that they are raising their child on their own when they are NOT. Lexi’s father has been a very integral part of his daughter’s life, and while DiabolicalDina clearly resents the fact he is in her life, Lexi is very lucky that she has her dad in her life and clearly spends at least half of her time with him and his family. He also pays his child support from everything I could find, and keeps to his visitation schedule, I know the horror of a child’s father being a part of his child’s life. I know that DiabolicalDina is jealous of her ex’s life and successful marriage and hates that her daughter enjoys spending time with her father and his family, but don’t portray yourself as some struggling single mother with no help and you are raising your daughter all on your own~ I would bet that Lexi’s father is also bankrolling her college, since DiabolicalDina spends her earnings on shoes and baubles. From what it also sounds like is that TwoTimingTommy is probably ready to kick her to the curb now that Lexi has graduated, and that he let her stay in the house until she graduated in exchange for sex. (hey I am not the one that implied this, she did by saying she is divorcing him but still sleeping with him since she is staying in HIS house). Also wonder who paid for those bracelets since DiabolicalDina clearly did not, I wonder if it was Lexi’s father. Things that make you go Hmmmm

    • OH! I so agree with you here!

    • cc101 says:

      I know exactly what you mean here. When people refer to me as a single parent I always correct them and remind them that I have a very effective co-parent (e.g. pays child support, very involved with the kids, etc.). I think it is really disrespectful to discount what the other parent does and act like you are doing it all.

      • T-Rex says:

        I heard that DiabolicalDina basically said that there were no men in her life to help with Lexi which is complete utter BS, her Dad was there for her. When I did watch the show Season one she was bitching because she had to “share” her daughter with her father, and I believe she used the word at the time of “unfair”, she’s an idiot. TwoTimingTommy had nothing to do with her child, and basically had not much to do with DiabolicalDina outside the bedroom throughout their entire marriage, but he wasn’t the father.

        Good for you, cc101! Are u new? If so, welcome!

        • cc101 says:

          I used to post a little bit before Lynn passed away. I have to admit that I am one that used to disappear when NJ came on because…..well, just because. Anyway, thank you for the welcome and I will try to post more!!

      • Orson says:

        The Ex-Mrs Buggy couldn’t understand why I wasn’t all that sympathetic to her because her parents divorced when she was 14. And she never accepted my explanation. My explanation was something to the affect that “Look, you can call your father anytime you want to talk to him. He sent you to college in Florida and then to UCSD. He pays your medical and probably gifts you every now and then. My father never even left a phone number for me to call when I was 13 and he died. So, get over it.”

    • Laineylainey says:

      This. This is why laineylainey loves trex. That display of Imelda Marcos shoes is just as disgusting as the displays of conspicuous consumption of Teresa Guidice’s in Season 1. These people have no class. As the Countess has sung over and over…”money can’t buy you class” or dignity for that matter since she seems to be paying rent the old fashioned way. Bizarre.

      Oh and TSOULA/NAMASTE I totes agree that her delusion of how much more special her relationship is with Lexi than the relationships other moms have with their kids…is gagalicious.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I agree with you 100% on her being a divorced mother and not a single mother. It also burns me with mothers try to play the pity card oh poor me I’m a single mom supporting and raising my child/ren all alone when they know darn well the father is in the child’s life and paying support and most likely has parents who also do things for the child. My son has custody of his oldest child but when he did not all I ever heard from her mother was how she was a single mom raising her child all by herself, never bothering tell people my son had her every other weekend, paid child support and I bought that child every diaper she used as a baby/toddler, bought all her clothes for her, all her baby furniture and anything else she needed while she sat at home collecting welfare. As you can tell this is a real pet peeve for me. At least these parents can be truthful about the father’s roll in the children’s life.

    • chismosa says:

      Trex so agree !

      Diabolical Diabla is awful.
      She DID go on Bethenny just a few weeks ago stating to the audience (and world) that she stays and sleeps with her tommy despite that they are separating. She’s so trashy.

      Bulgari bracelet – lordie

      I would bet MONEY Lexi is either in or on her way to Cyprus right now because this is time of the year all the Greeks travel to Greece.

      She probably has a loving family over there.

    OMG this AmberCancerAlert chick is off her rocker! Who says things like her friend broke up a marriage but Ssssshhhh Mego don’t tell anyone, as I blast this information to the cameras for the rest of America to see. Again, I don’t understand the constant need to validate your struggles with this evil disease and use it as a crutch to explain poor behaviour. I am happy for her that she is reaching a huge milestone of a five year clear status, good for her, you are on national TV why don’t you plan a Charity function, using the Bravo cameras for free publicity, and make a big deal to speak to those still struggling, just diagnosed, or who are also conquering the disease like a big birthday party for your status. Actually, my Cancer Center just promoted on the website someone who did just that, held a Birthday Party to celebrate the new life or “Birth” of being Cancer Free another year, especially a milestone year. Again, in my life, more folks around me bring up my diagnosis than i do, and I don’t care who knows and who forgets, etc. It’s not their struggle nor their life, and I am under no delusion that they should keep up with my information. Rant over. I am not sure how Bravo is going to fix TheJerseyShoreDysfunctionalCriminals franchise but adding this nitwit probably wasn’t the greatest idea.

  8. plainviewsue says:

    Nice job on your first blog recaps!! Whenever I hear someone refer to cancer as “the cancer”, I think back to the movie Terms of Endearment, one of the biggest tear jerkers in movie history. Debra Winger’s character called it “the cancer”.

    As a Teresa G supporter, I don’t care if the support from the ladies are real or not. After three seasons of being attacked by Carowhine, Wacko & her own family, I don’t want to watch any more of that.

  9. Hey ladies! Thanks for your kind remarks…I changed my “name” so people will know who I am.

  10. TrashyT says:

    Thanks so much for blogging.. You did a great job.. Nice snark.. But not nasty… Perfect. Spent yesterday reveling in rain in San Diego and driving through some now on the way back to Las Vegas. When you live in drought rain is beautiful! Have a good Sunday everyone. I tried to use my Cox Contour ap on the iPad to set my home DVD torecord Melbourne which starts before I get home. Hope it works!

    I hope we hear some Jeff news soon!

  11. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    • Thanks for posting, Tartsy! Why the hell does Melissa have to be on with her dingbat husband on WWHL? So sick of these two, but especially Joey.

      • T-Rex says:

        I wish Mz Andy would bust them regarding the fake house sale! Oh, and the whole we spent our millions on buying into a trash company, instead of a new house, oh and not be a bonified owner of that company for the millions since NO business license has been done in JOGO’s name in the state of new jersey, for this company. Why don’t these Reality TV folks understand this novel thing called the “internets” and that anything regarding public records are PUBLIC and available online, sheesh

        • Foxymel11(Mel) says:

          I wish Andy would ask hard questions but that’s reserved for Teresa. He’ll play bedroom games with these two and let them off the hook. I can’t stand Andy either. Ha!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Oh joy…

      I went through the FB pics and I see an old one with Camille and with Andy and who I always assume is Andy’s (secret) husband – the restaurant guy. His bestie.

      Andy’s hair has changed so much through the years.

      Kyle has had some sort of lipo

  14. cc101 says:

    Namaste – I usually skip over blog recaps as I read all the blogs on the Bravo site, but I have to say I loved your recap! It was funny and fair. Thank you!

  15. Great Blog Namaste!! I lol’d at the drinking game. I hate Cancer, And the snoring cracked me up! I for one laugh every time Vicki does it. Thank you!!

  16. Exit4 says:

    I’m going to lay down a bet here……ratings go back over 2 million because there’s going to fighting on this episode.

    • T-Rex says:

      Kinda sad that the Ho-Wives have turned into an expensive version of Jerry Springer, and that is all Bravo induced, sad, sad, sad. My mom has met Jerry several times, he lived in Florida for a while and he used to joke that he did the show for the money and as long as they were paying him, he didn’t care how the folks acted on his show.

      • Exit4 says:

        The fans (a lot of them) share the blame though. When the episodes are quiet, people say it’s boring and tune out. They tune in for fights and say they hate the fighting. But yet they’re watching!! Fights=ratings. They ask for a recast-then hate the new people and want the old ones back (NJ and NY). The normal people are boring-so they cast crazies and then they hate the crazy! See where I’m going with this? Lol. Bravo consistently gives us what the fans want. Then they don’t want it.

        • Orson says:

          Here’s what I don’t understand about Springer. When someone gets a call from a Springer PA out of the blue, and they’re offering free round trip air-fare and couple of days at a hotel to boot, don’t they get suspicious? I sure would.

          • T-Rex says:

            Orson, Jerry said that same thing to my mom! He couldn’t understand how they even got folks to go on the show. Jerry doesn’t meet anyone until they are on stage and Mom asked him once do the producers/handlers manipulate the guests, and he just said probably. They hand him the information for the show that morning while he is getting ready in his dressing room and whatever is on the cards is the only thing he knows until those morons/guests unleash on stage

    Vacation Shannon is fun Shannon. …. Nothing good can come from this.

    I watched Melbourne .. Wow lol.

  18. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Lainey Lou, how are you?!

  19. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    I’ll be back in a bit to chat NJ – dang I wish they would air this one hour later!!!

  20. boston02127 says:

    ^5 Namaste. Great blog. TY

  21. Boobah says:

    Anyone watching RHoNJ??

  22. Exit4 says:

    Husband comments:
    What kind of dumb ass drives a Bentley in the snow?
    $100,000 in a year? Yeah, that got paid.
    No one needs that many shoes. Even you can admit that. (I cannot and will not)
    Pencil Dick is my new favorite name. I’m calling everyone pencil dick the rest of the week.

  23. LaineyLainey says:

    So now Mel thinks she’s a comedian…she thinks she’s so clever. They (she and Joe) just aren’t cute or funny to me. Her humor wd be cute-ish if she were 19 y.o. But she’s not.

  24. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    I’m here in time for Rosie to say she’s going as a sniper, so she doesn’t need a costume – hey, I’ll have to remember that! 😆

  25. I am amazed at how much, with all that make up, Rosie looks like Teresa G…!!!

  26. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Newsflash to Susie Matchmaker – (any) Firefighter + Dina is so off the charts, NOT a good match! Duh!

  27. Boobah says:

    I don’t enjoy Dina.

  28. Joey is so strange, is he jealous of his sister’s looks, so funny!! The lights are on but there is no one home!!!!

  29. Exit4 says:

    That didn’t take long-that guy (Jim) is a pencil dick.
    Oooohhh Rosie’s getting in on it! How much scotch has she drank?

  30. mrs peabody says:

    Darn mine’s not taping, it doesn’t tape till the later version, what happened? Darn.

  31. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Why is Joe G. in a suit? Is his first RESPONSE outfit an attorney?!

  32. Exit4 says:

    I know no one will agree with me-but this so far, is my second favorite season-after season 1. Maybe because I’m from NJ and I get it-I know these people (not on the show) and I laugh more then cringe. I am just loving this group. All of them. Even the Gorgas.

  33. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    UH OH….she has ISSUES….

  34. Boobah says:

    Hair pulling!?!? What was thrown – a wine glass?? What In The EFF was that clusterf*ck about?

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Oh I guess if you kept watching you know, but last week Amber said she heard that Nicole broke up a family (affair) to Mego and of course Mego ran and told the twins, Nicole was furious because it’s not true.

      • Boobah says:

        Ooooohhhh, got it. Thanks, TT!

      • chismosa™ says:

        I don’t get on twitter how people are saying mego started it.

        Spray paint blush plants this BOMB and Melissa’s supposed to STFU??? Why?

        • Laineylainey says:

          I don’t get how you don’t get that mego started this.

          It was a heavy handed way to move the plot along but it wouldn’t have moved along had Melissa not done what she did.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Right I get that Lainey – but the camera is supposed to air and catch Mego listening to this – BOMB- I mean, 💣💣💣in the car by spray paint and then not say anything all season long so on the reunion it’s some new, big thing?
            Then she’s a 2timer because she was friendly with the twins and “didn’t tell them” –
            I still don’t get it.

            She loses no matter what. Good work Spray Paint!
            I am truly sorry !

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Mel is not the victim here, I heard her say, what you said above, almost the exact same thing on WWHL. She acts like she had no other choice. But she did! She could have just said,” I didn’t say anything because it’s none of my business and I didn’t want to spread spread rumors about something I know nothing about.” Of course that would have meant no fight at the First Responder Party. She’s being a dutiful Bravo employee. Following in the footsteps of many HWs. Whatever it takes to hang on to that Bravo paycheck. Can’t really blame her, I guess.

              Why are you truly sorry? Did you do sunthin to me? If so, I didn’t notice…so… No worries!! LOL

  35. mrs peabody says:

    Are they pulling each others hair. omg lol

  36. Jan (TexasTart) says:


    Not the Gorgas, UGH. I’m going to watch the episode from the beginning instead of them!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Their new “Lucy and Ricky” schtick is not working for me. “You put me in a nurse outfit…” Oh wow, that’s hilarious (not) , it’s not like you didn’t already milk this bit.

  37. Exit4 says:

    I gotta sit up for this-it’s go time!
    Holy makeup dude (Amber). I have less spackle on my wall.
    I love when chicks pull hair! It’s hot!
    Let’s watch it again! We have to dissect this! (And we did)

  38. Exit4 says:

    Low husband comments tonight since he laughed at a lot of it. He thinks they’re all crazy. We stayed home from the shore because of rain so I got to watch at normal time. He did have to explain the pocket thing! He grew up in a much tougher town then me! Lol. He thinks instead of WWHL they should have a round table discussion with both joes, rino and Rosie.

  39. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Whew, for a second I thought I had to recap – now why the heck are they playing a rerun of DBT in primetime?!

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Hey what did I say the other day about Kim’s friends are people she employs? Her stylist, Shun, is one of her best friends.

      • ladebra says:

        I think Kim has serious trust issues. As in she doesn’t want anyone around her that she thinks will leak pictures and stories about her family. She might be paranoid but that doesn’t mean people aren’t after her 😜

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          Likely so.

        • T-Rex says:

          Since the first season she was on the show, it was clear that GoldDiggaKim didn’t have any friends, I believe she even talked about that because she wasn’t sure how she was going to interact with all the ladies on the show.

        • Laineylainey says:

          That reminds me of one of the last lines in one of my fave movies “Bowfinger” when the psychiatrist says “sometimes the paranoid really are being followed”

  40. chismosa says:

    thanks for the blog – I love how you did it!

    Totally agree on tre’s and loved how they ALL brush over Milania’s “adorable!” Behavior. 🙄

  41. chismosa says:

    From those pictures of Kim R’s daughter – it looked quite cloudy no?
    I know Princess P was updating on weather yesterday.

    Was the wedding on Lisa vanderpump’s home grounds ?

    Ducks in Heaven

    Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven.

    When they get there, St. Peter says, “we only have one rule here in heaven, don’t step on the ducks” They enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck. And although they try their best to avoid them, The first woman accidentally steps on one.

    Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw St. Peter chains them together and says, “your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man”

    The next day the second woman accidentally steps on a duck and along comes St. Peter who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

    The third woman has observed all this and not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, she is very careful where she steps She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks.

    One day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on…. Very tall, long eyelashes, muscular.

    St. Peter chains them together without saying a word. The happy woman says, “I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity”

    The guy answers: “I don’t know about you but I stepped on a duck”

  46. ladebra says:

    In case you missed it 💖

    • T-Rex says:

      I guess for the record, it was “technically” her hair since she bought and paid for it, but the reason that these bitches have hair that is so easy to remove is that it’s a WEAVE. It’s a lot harder to pull someone’s real hair out of their head, and it usually bleeds.
