S6E6 Cast Blogs Blogged
Dina lets us know she I aware that she wasn’t in much of this episode. She tells us how much she believes in the mumbo jumbo of vision boards (Oprah was all about these years ago. I don’t get it. My fridge is my “vision board”. Unfortunately, I post things like recipes and holiday cards which might explain a lot of my probs.) I don’t the Vision Board is gonna get TerEsa out of her FEDERAL legal issues. I am also dumbfounded that Dina made a Vision Board when she was married to her first husband and now she wants us to believe she has everything on that board now…did her Vision Board include hopes for 2 divorces? Dysfunctional relationships with siblings?
Now I’ll touch on a few of my favorite moments from this week’s show. How adorable is Giovanni? He’s got such a gentle way about him for a boy his age, it’s exciting to see the next generation of a family business bloom. I’m sure Teresa and Rino are very proud of him and his desire to keep that tradition alive. I can tell you first hand that the food is GREAT at their restaurants, and please when you visit will you buy that man a drink?
I thought this was a real scene. I have a 16 year old son and that is exactly how he behaves when I am in the car with him.
Speaking of restaurants I appeared to be a bit quiet at dinner with the crew, didn’t I? That’s a LOT of personalities at one table. I tend to shrink in situations like that and do more eating and observing while everyone else takes the stage. I loved to see Rosie happy with her new love. Rosie and I had many talks about her relationship since me and her girl are both Pisces. I tried to give her an inside peek into the wonderful sensitive minds of us fish. You’ll have to stay tuned to see how it worked out for them. I adore Rosie and wish her a lifetime of happiness, she deserves it.
I didn’t realize Dina saw herself as a shrinking violet. Hmmm. I love seeing Rosie happy. She has always been REAL on the show and I think she comes off as very sincere.
Finally I have to say it was nice to see Amber and Nicole work out their differences…at least for now. I see the good in both the girls, we all mess up once in a while, right? OK, OK, so it might be a little hard to relate to a slutty first responder throwdown, but you know what I mean.
Yeah, it was nice. So what. It ain’t gonna last. Dina bids us farewell and tells is to get crafting.
TerEsa thanks us for watching this week and was excited for us to see her family. She is very proud of Gia. I have a feeling Gia is the most mature one of this bunch.
Milania… again with Milania! I can’t believe she hid my present for Gia in the fridge! I know you only see her acting out, but she loves attention and likes to play up when other people are around. In private though she’s a sweetheart. Believe me, I don’t let my kids run wild. They are all such good kids with good hearts. They make me so proud!
OK, Milania is back to being the adorable Milania we have grown to love. Here is a tweet from my favorite tweeter, @TheFauxMilaniaG. If you don’t follow her, please do yourself a favor and check her out. It is HILARIOUS!

TerEsa tries to make us believe the inmates are not running the asylum. Not buying.
Gia’s gift was a pave ring that my mother gave me when I was a teenager. I’ve been saving it for her. It’s too big for her to wear now, but she’s mature enough to understand how much it means. I don’t think there’s any better present than something passed down from your mama, no matter what it is.
Contrary to most, I thought this was a very thoughtful gift. I have a ring that was my great grandmother’s and it has a lot of sentimental value. Yes, it is a bit big and “costumey”, but I am sure she can wear it for special occasions.
How funny was Joe and Gia’s talk? I love that they have such a great relationship. It’s important for girls to have a strong father figure in their lives. Gia is a daddy’s girl just like I was, and still am! Their heart-to-heart talk was so cute. I can’t believe Gia admitted to her dad that she’s kissed a boy! Ah marone! I don’t even want to think about it. Joe’s so funny: “Next time that kid comes here, I’m gonna kick his ass.” He’s kidding of course, but any boy that wants to date any of our daughters better realize they have to go through me and Joe first!
We are definitely seeing a softer side of Juicy this year and I like it. He loves his girls. He also knows the likelihood is pretty high that he will not be seeing these girls grow up. Very sad for those girls.
TerEsa loved meeting all her fans at her Fabellini signing. Wonder how much she charged for pics with her. She wishes us Tanti Baci and signs off.
Melissa still tries to make us believe she wanted wings on that damn truck. I am really hoping she is not that dumb, but now I am not so sure. Also telling the Scientist that she is only familiar with the scientist from Back to the Future. Um, she has a college degree. Did she get hers through the mail? Was it a lottery?
I have to say I absolutely loved watching the scenes of Teresa and Rino and their handsome son, Giovanni. It still amazes me that these two were actually divorced and ended up back together and stronger than ever. It really does go to show you that true love conquers all! These two really entertain me and the more you get to know them, the more you’re going to fall in love with both of them!
I am not that entertained by them. But I do love that the kid is going into the fambily business.
I loved that Rosie introduced Ellen. You can see it in her eyes that she really loves this woman and feels really comfortable with her. Rosie is such a joy to be around and always makes everything fun!
As I have said again and again, Rosie is the most real person on this show. I wish we had more of Rosie and wonder why she and Kathy don’t blog?
Can’t get over how big Gia is getting. Love seeing the moments with her and her daddy. There’s nothing like the father-daughter bond. I see it every day with Antonia and Joe. No one gets a little girl’s heart like her daddy!
Beautiful and bitter sweet. We are all fully aware that the likelihood of Juicy being around for her 14th birthday is HIGHLY unlikely.
Watching Nicole do her thing at work was so great. You could tell she definitely brings the sass and energy to that office! She’s such a doll and she always makes me laugh.
I actually found this scene to be annoying. Who else is hoping she is not using that annoying voice on a speaker phone all freaking day?
I really was so happy that Amber and Nicole finally decided to talk to each other. That’s really what I wanted to happen from the beginning at Bobby’s party, and I also wanted to be there with them to explain my part to Amber so she could understand why I told Nicole. It wouldn’t have been right for it to be out there for everyone to hear without Nicole being able to explain that whatever Amber heard through the grapevine wasn’t true. I’m glad they finally talked it out and hopefully we can all move on from the nonsense.
Liar liar pants on fire! There is no freaking way that when you set this ball in motion that your ultimate goal was for Nicole and Amber to have a polite sit-down to hash out their differences.
Melissa promises she will talk to us next week and tells us she is a busy little bee working on her holiday jewelry line. Gee, I hope there is a Back to the Future themed piece in that line. Maybe a Delorean pin?
Amber has taken it upon herself to write her college thesis for us each week. It gets longer and longer as the weeks go by, but the theme doesn’t seem to change. Amber tells us she doesn’t “want to beat a dead horse” but she goes on to do so anyway. Yes, she has to rehash “through the grapevine” story. Great. We get it. You didn’t think Melissa would tell anyone. I am gathering you NEVER watched a real housewives franchise before you got casted, right? Because that’s what happens on every episode. Like the old game of telephone, one person tells another something allegedly private or personal and that person tells other cast members and adds a little extra something to make the story better. We saw it on OC with Tamra and Shannon and on BH between Brandi and Lisa.
What I still do not understand is how this situation ever escalated the way it did in the first place. It would have been a hell of a lot more sane if this “sit down” conversation happened prior to the spectacle that Nicole had put on at the party. Either way, I learned a very valuable lesson from all of this. I pray we can honestly all move on.
Let me share this with you my young Jedi, it happened because you get paid!
As far as Bobby goes, please understand, there is so much back story this situation. Bobby hurt us, my family, and destroyed a long term friendship with my husband. Jim has done nothing but bend over backwards for Bobby! I have had many conversations with Bobby, and I do not like how he treats people. Whether it be his friends, his family, or women, I have cringed at some things that he has said to me. If Rino, Teresa, or Nicole for that matter wants to turn a blind eye, that is their choice. Trust me when I tell you, I held back what I really wanted to say to Nicole as a friend, and there are things I have kept quiet because my loyalty was with Bobby for a very long time now. However, after what Bobby did to us, I wanted so badly to warn Nicole. I did not feel like she was ready, so I shut my mouth. Remember Nicole, there is nothing for us to gain by telling you, however, you are handing him everything for free, including notoriety and fame, without so much as a ring on your finger. I hope everyone caught Bobby’s response at the dinner table when asked about his future with Nicole: “Is that grape?” In the end, I warned her and what she does with the information is her decision.
You start out telling us this was your hubby’s BFF, but all along you knew he was a scumbag? Weird. Your hubby was hanging out with this guy for YEARS and only know have you found your voice and decided to tell everyone what a terrible person Bobby really is?
Now, I am going to gush over my children! They were amazing and so adorable! Their personalities just shined! The Mortgage Now commercials are just so much fun for us as parents to watch. It helps our children learn their lines and perform, as well as breaking them out of their shells and learning to be comfortable in front of others. Whether they want to pursue acting, public speaking, public office, or anything for that matter, this gives them the foundation to do all of that. Jim and I could not be more proud as parents. Jim and I truly love being parents. We really feel we are an amazing duo together with the same values, morals, and ethics. We want to raise amazing gentlemen and ladies. Here is a flash bulletin, the commercials are for fun and for the Mortgage NOW, Inc. website, they are not supposed to make you apply for a mortgage – they’re there to make you smile and make it clear the company is service oriented and family based.
<snooze> I get it. Jim came on this show to hopefully get some exposure for his business. And then, he opened his mouth.
I want to take a moment to remember one of my all-time favorite people, Robin Williams. My heart goes out to his family. I also want to take a moment to outwardly speak about the hate mail/tweets that his daughter received after this tragedy in her life. I don’t understand the level of depravity to send her anything but condolences. I really don’t. She does not deserve this. She only deserves our love and support.
Yes, this is totally off topic but I 100% agree with her. First and foremost, we lost one of the most talented actor/comediennes my generation has known. His children lost their beloved father. And bastards out there in the world took this opportunity to twist the knife a little more in order to make his daughter hurt more. There is a special room for these people in hell.
Her experience with hate tweets made me think of #RHONJ. Please, support your favorite Housewife, but it really upsets me to read hurtful, viscous tweets about any of the Housewives. It is OK to have a point of view, it is OK to not agree with us, it is OK to like and support us, however, it is never OK to be mean, vulgar, judgmental, and/or nasty to any of us. I may not agree with a particular Housewife, I might even be angry with her, but I still do not want my supporters becoming nasty to her. We can all get our points across without being cruel to one another. Our supporters are what make this show so amazing. This should all be enjoyable and a fun process, leave the nasty and hateful comments out it.
OK, you lost me here. Comparing your situation with Robin Williams’ daughter is just wrong. She never asked for any of this. You signed up for a show knowing full well how previous cast members have been treated. You knew it going in. Shame on you for trying to get sympathy for being a fame whore. If you don’t like the negative attention, delete your twitter account, stop going on facebook and get yourself off reality TV. If your gonna dance, you gotta pay the fiddler.
She closes by thanking everyone (yes, a long list) for their support. I was not listed so she is not thanking me personally. I do, however, appreciate her not mentioning the c-word! My liver thanks you, Amber!
It’s the end of summer and TEReSA is watching it fly by. She enjoyed this episode and especially liked the dinner with the whole group.
Every scene with my son Gio makes me smile. I’m sure you can tell by now that my son, my one and only, steals my heart. Gio is a good driver, but all you moms know how nerve wracking it is driving with your child in the beginning. As a mom my advice is to constantly reinforce with your children that speed really kills. My heart breaks for so many lives lost this past week in our area from car accidents with teens. I am constantly praying for the youth today to “get it” — drive slowly. Kids think they really are indestructible.
I enjoyed the driving scene. It was just like watching my son and I when we are out driving. Sad to hear there has been a lot of loss in her community. Our community lost 4 teens in an accident the night before graduation a few years ago. It was a huge blow and hopefully a wake-up call to the other kids.
Having dessert in little Italy with Rino and Gio was quite amusing. Obviously Rino and I have different parenting styles. His conversations with Gio are a lot different than mine, so I will leave the “double, triple bagging” suggestions to his dad. That is definitely a talk that should have been between father and son, without me there. My conversations with Gio definitely pertain to the heart, the way to treat a woman, respect, cherishing, and a lot of love. Rino’s conversations tend to head south. LMAO!
The relationship between TEReSA, Rino and Gio is very sweet and you can see how very much they love their son. I think it is really exciting that he wants to take over the family business. TEReSA then goes on and on about the renovation and the new restaurant. I got a snack. I wish I had some of those desserts TEReSA and Gio had at that restaurant.
As for Nicole, my sister, my twin, her heart of gold always shines bright. Witnessing that conversation with Amber once again reflected the class act that Nicole is. I wish I could say I felt sincerity on Amber’s part, but I just didn’t see it. There was just so much attitude, so sad, enough already.
Nope, I didn’t see any sincerity either. I do not see anyone putting this storyline to bed. Amber is gonna continue to beat this dead horse til it is dog food.
I love that Dina does a dream board. Although we have never spoken about that, having been in the Personal Development arena, I also do dream boards and believe they are a tremendous tool in getting laser focused on your goals. I add a Bible verse under each picture, which I believe makes it so powerful. Thank you, Dina, for sharing this for the world to see — it can be so beneficial to many people.
We have now come to the portion of the blog where we suck up to Dina. I don’t get the whole dream board. Dina is a little too kooky and crystals for me, but hey, whatever works, right? TEReSA checks out and thanks her fans and friends for all their love and support. You’re welcome.
Nicole starts out apologizing for her blog being a wee bit tardy. She didn’t post her blog until Saturday morning. Let’s jump right in.
It was great to finally get an apology. Going back to that night and remembering how I felt, it was a really good feeling to forgive and let go. I truly feel what I said in my interview: “Bitterness is leprosy to the soul.” At this point weeks had gone on with a lot of hurt , lies, and deceit, and with all the anger that I had towards Amber also came deep hurt. Once it involves my family, then it must end. Again I always feel people make mistakes, and if they are really sincere, they should be forgiven. So I left that café after our long conversation feeling really happy we were in a much better place and actually feeling hopeful for our friendship. It was hard for me to go back to that happy place this week due to the negativity in Amber’s blogs this season and both Amber and Jim’s comments on social media. There’s a difference between right and raunchy, and my children do not need to be subjected to their vile and inherently evil comments. Especially since my children loved and respected my boyfriend, Gary! So my advice to Dina, since you are separated or may date a man who is separated, is make sure the Marcheses don’t call you a “home wrecker” next season.
Hmmm, seems as though we are getting a clue into where the whole “homewrecker” came from. Did Nicole date a guy who was separated and then his scorned wife claimed he was a cheater and Nicole was a homewrecker? Whatever. I am so sick of this “storyline.”
I actually enjoyed seeing myself at work. My office is like my second home. One of my best friends, Adriana, is one of the assistants in the office, so I absolutely love seeing her in the morning and having our coffee together. It wasn’t a shock at all for my office to hear that phone call, because I’m extremely close to all them. They are like my second family, so they knew exactly what had been going on for weeks. I hope everyone will get to see more of me in the workforce, because it’s really exciting and I would love for you all to see some amazing private jets. That is what I call sexy!
I found this whole scene annoying and staged. I am still hopeful that she is not on her speaker phone all day.
Loved having dinner at Ponte Vecchio with everyone. Not only is it a beautiful restaurant, the food is outstanding! It was a great group. Joe Giudice’s homemade wine was outrageous, and I truly love the two Joes. They both have a genuine sweetness about them and I enjoy being in their company along with their beautiful wives. We had such a great dinner at Angelo’s with Teresa and Joe that I was excited to have them at Ponte Vecchio. I loved seeing Rosie happy. She deserves the very best, because she has the BIGGEST heart and gives so much! Her sisters Kathy’s cannolis were out of this world too! Amazing how Rosie and I started dating our significant others both in March. Yes, my brother-in-law mocks Amber and says “Nicole and Bobby’s relationship is facazy.” Well I don’t know why Amber keeps on questioning or even cares so much about my relationship and whether Bobby is with me for the right reasons. Well I had a magnificent dinner with Bobby that night as well. We always have an amazing time wherever we are as long as we are together!
Yes, Rosie deserves to be happy, but I guess not with this gal. It has been all over the gossip sites that this woman felt used and that her relationship with Rosie was more casual than the show made it out to be. That makes me sad for Rosie. Amber is one of those women that doesn’t wish happiness for her friends. She must be pretty miserable in her own head.
It was incredible to see Dina’s dream board. I had a personal development business for five years and I feel strongly about dream boards. Dina has a beautiful spirit and I love what a great friend she is to Teresa. Those are the kind of friends people need in their lives.
Whatever. I don’t believe putting stuff on a corkboard gets you any closer to the things you want. WORKING HARD is what gets you closer things you want. Nicole closes by asking us to pray for the family that lost 2 children and a father and boy who are in critical condition. She asks us to talk to your children about speeding (also mentioned in TEReSA’s blog). I will take a moment to do this today. We all live in this lightening fast world and we just need to remind ourselves to slow down.
