S6E10 Cast Blogs Blogged
Bravo found a way to keep Kathy and Jacqueline from over-sharing and decided to do their blogs as “question and answer” sessions. Annoying
Bravotv.com: How much progress has Nick made since we saw him last season? Jacqueline Laurita: Nick can now request pretty much all his needs verbally in 3-4 word sentences. He reads and spells pretty well. He can repeat and label most things. He can answer a few specific questions he was trained to answer, like what his name is, how old he is, and where he lives. He can eat with utensils again. His eye contact has improved a great deal. He’s more engaged. He is not conversational yet, but I believe it’s coming. He can dress and undress himself. He brushes his teeth. He is starting to recognize and say other family members’ names. You should hear him say Aunt Caroline.
This all sounds like good news. Nick is making progress. I am pleased that he is getting appropriate services and that Jac and Chris are advocating for her. As much as I believe autism NEEDS to be accepted as reality (although, let’s all agree that nothing on reality tv is as it really should be) I still believe it is in their family’s best interests to stay off tv. People will question everything Jac says. I get it cause she is part of the fabric of this show. But her reality of raising a child with autism is way too precious to expose to the greater public to pick apart and judge. I will say this, the cost of caring for a child with autism is astronomical (although I am sure other disabilities are similar). The recommended standard of therapy/services is 30-40 hours per week from age of diagnosis. The cost of these services can reach well over $100,000 and in many states, not provided by public schools. Until recently, most insurance companies were able to refuse this intensive therapy. Laws are changing by state and thankfully getting better, but progress is very slow. Most parents have to choose and accept lesser services because it is all they can afford and live with the guilt thinking, “could I have done more”?
Bravotv.com: Have you been in touch with Teresa since your text message exchange? JL: I saw her at Joe’s father’s wake and we hugged each other. Other than that, we have only had a few exchanges and her responses to my texts were always pleasant but cold, short, and non-engaging. I’m totally OK with that now. I worry about her and her family, but I only want true, caring, supportive friends and real, sincere people in my circle. I still wish her and her family peace and happiness, but I’ve realized that she doesn’t have the qualities of a friend that I want in my life right now. I’ve let go.
I get this. I have friends that are better at distance. Tre is not warm and fuzzy unless it is her immediate family. She keeps people at arms length and Jac isn’t like that. To each their own.
Bravotv.com: Have you moved into a new home yet? JL: Nope! We’ve had a lot of lookers but no takers. For now, we’re going to keep it up for sale. Who knows, we might just have to stay here? LOL! Whatever is meant to be, will be.
Actually, I am all for them selling their McMansion and moving into something more affordable if that means Nick can continue to receive the best services available. I don’t really care about their finances in the background as it seems they are prioritizing now.
JillNoNotThatJill was able to save this from Bravo before they deleted it from their own blog!
Bravotv.com: What’s your current relationship with Dina like? JL: Currently there is no relationship between us, but only because she chooses not to have one. It’s frustrating because I feel like it’s all petty, nonsense stuff, that all just seems silly and unimportant to me. I have other, more important things to focus on, although, I’m always open to reconciliation with people that are willing and sincere. My husband is probably the most hurt by Dina. Maybe one day we can heal as a family like the Gorgas and Giudices did. Miracles have happened on #RHONJ . All it takes is for both parties to want it at the same time and be sincere about wanting it. (That’s the key.)
Damn, still not clarification! I gather from Dina that once she “done” with someone, she is done. Didn’t she say she has a funeral in her head and puts that person to rest? All families have ups and downs and in LARGE families I imagine it happens more often. Maybe one day they can all heal and come together. Sad though that I am sure reality TV brought this all on.
Some of you might think I am too kind to Jac. Yes, I am. I give her a free pass of sorts. I get her. Unlike how Amber relates to Tre’s possible prison sentence, Jac and I actually DO have something in common. I know what it is like to get that life changing diagnosis. Believing my child would never speak, have a friend, sit in a typical classroom, join a scout troop, attend a sleepover, go to a dance, cheer on the sidelines of a football game…I grieved for so long all of those things. And now my daughter has proved me wrong. She has done every one of those things and will do more, but on her terms. So I ask you all in your comments to please not judge how Jac cares for her son. Feel free to talk about that damn BLK, her bad plastic surgery, her need to try and be friends with Tre…yes there are so many other things! Have at it! Just please, leave Nick out of it. Autism speaks…its time to listen.
The Divine Miss Dina will blog for us this week while avoiding people she has had a funeral for in her head…
So I’m not one to use these blogs to defend myself, but I’m totally going there this week!
First I must say I’m not that useless in the kitchen! I will admit since Lexi and I gave up meat five years ago, and since I found out I’m allergic to gluten and dairy, I HARDLY cook anymore. I prepare really simple, clean food, and to me that’s not really cooking. There’s no heavy sauces or casseroles in Casa d’Manzo. It’s lots of veggies and rice and quinoa — kind of boring, but I don’t have a choice! I DID make that yummy kale salad with fresh fruit and hummus dressing that you saw being put down on the table in Florida, so there you go! But like I said, my table will always look gorgeous and you can learn how to do this yourself at dinaspartyschool.com!
I am sure she hates being compared to her sister, but she is definitely very different from Caroline. I imagine Caroline cooks full meat filled meals several nights a week.
OK on to the next… I looked a little chunkier than I actually am in Florida. Two reasons — one I had given up my exercise routine for the past four months, because our winter was so brutal. I was so lazy and not inspired to leave the house other than to work. I know that’s no excuse, but I kind of get the winter blues. I’m such a nature girl, if I can’t hike or walk outside I tend to lose my mojo, and I certainly did this past winter. In my defense though, how I can I look anything but chunky next to these girls? They are all gym rats and in incredible shape. The twins are a freak of nature, and let me tell you, in person they don’t have an ounce of cellulite on their bodies. It’s just not normal, LOL! I’m going to post a bikini selfie this weekend just to show America I do take care of myself.
I HATE THIS! Why is Dina fat shaming herself? Many of us would love to look as “fat” as Dina! Yes, the other 3 girls are very slim with man-made curves…well, Dina’s are, too right? But I would certainly not describe Dina as “chunky”.
Now on to the “secret”… I was so torn on what to do with this info. My first instinct was of course to let the girls know that someone was talking about their mother. If someone was talking about my mom, I would want to know so I could rip their face off. Not very zen, huh? Say all you want about me, but mention my kid or my parents and all bets are off. It was really bugging me; I literally was told the night before we left for Florida, and I couldn’t sleep at all. Every time we were having fun, the guilt that I wasn’t saying anything to them was overwhelming all other emotions, and I seriously became obsessed with the fact that I needed to tell them.
I think Bravo production was pushing Dina to bring this to the forefront in order to get some juicy footage. In a natural situation, you would never share a rumor like this in front of a camera if you were trying to give your friend a “heads up”.
Next week’s episode is a doozy, and I can tell you I haven’t cried like this is a VERY long time. As a sensitive empath and pisces, I absorb feelings around me, and let me tell you the range of emotions in that house was overwhelming! There was anger, sadness, frustration, fear, envy, sorrow, and on and on. Everyone had someone there to support them but me, and it was something I hope I never have to experience again… Like I said, Scary Island ain’t got nothin’ on Jersey.
I really hope that Scary Island II is all it has been made out to be because we need SOMETHING. This season has been a snorefest between Nicole’s alleged breaking-up of a family which is not true and Amber’s cancer <drink> which is true yet annoying. We deserve SOMETHING big for sticking this out. Miss Dina promises next weekend won’t disappoint us.
Melissa wants us to know how much fun her and Joey had with Andy on WWHL. Andy of course had Joey do some of his stripper moves. Ick.
I thought seeing the girls’ trip was so much fun! That’s what I love watching! Girls uncensored with a little wine! Come on, we are all a little nosey or Reality TV would not be here, so to be able to hear the little secrets we talk about when the men and children aren’t around was hilarious too me. And yes Dina, I work out hard after having three babies and my reward is feeling comfortable in my bathing suit. And girl, I still don’t understand that peeing thing! OMG! Do I live under a rock?! Everyone seems to know but me!
The whole sex talk thing was icky. Dina watches porn for decorating tips? No wonder everything is so gaudy.
I loved cooking for everyone. Nicole and I each picked a couple dishes to make and Teresa and Dina helped out, but were more than happy to let us take the reins. You can see when I cook I get in the zone. I was quiet and enjoying my glass of wine while making a nice meal. What’s better than that? I think by now everyone knows that “tipsy” Melissa is one of the best versions of me, LOL! I’m a happy drunk! It’s hard to piss me off when I’ve had a couple! I love life, I love people, and I love enjoying good times together with girlfriends! Especially in a beautiful house in Boca! “Tipsy Melissa” is my spirit animal. So eat, drink, and be merry!
Longhot…longhot…longhot… BTW, I hate angry moody drunks! We all know a person that turns into a flaming butthole when they drink. It ruins everything for everyone around them and it sucks. Melissa is not that person. She is “dumb drunk” which is fun and funny. I could handle her in small doses.
Joe “baby sitting” was so funny. I always wondered what goes on when I’m not home. Now I know! Joe is such an amazing father; the way my children look at him makes me smile. He’s the fun Dad. I keep everyone in check and he comes home and it’s, “Daddyyy!” Sometimes that drives me nuts, because I do a lot of the disciplining and he gets all the glory, but I get it. He provides an incredible life for them and they respect him for that so much. I’m lucky that I found a guy that’s an amazing husband and a great father too. Blessed. The bond between Antonia and Joe is special, I loved hearing their little talk. The first day she was born he said he was going to put bars on the windows! She is truly his princess — she has him wrapped around her little finger. It’s so cute. I’m proud of the little girl she is growing into. She’s sweet, smart, loving, and happy. But I agree with Joe — I also want to break the internet!
This is a HUGE pet peeve of mine! My husband has on occasion told friends he can’t do something cause he is babysitting and, NO, it isn’t babysitting! It is hanging out with YOUR OWN kids. Babysitting is watching children that belong to someone else. Joey seems like a fun dad that allows Melissa to carry the majority of the parenting load.
It was also good to see Jacqueline and Kathy catching up. I love to watch Nicholas with Jammin’ Jenn. To see his progress is truly touching. Jacqueline is so devoted to making sure Nicholas gets access to the best resources. And we got a glimpse of Kathy’s new home! I know that she has been looking to build her dream kitchen for some time. It looks like it’s going to be beautiful. Congrats, Kathy!
It was a weird filler scene and totally not necessary other than to bring in viewers…and it worked. Seemed as though there was a ratings hike. Dina can’t be too pleased about that.
Onto that terrible rumor. At this point of the episode I still have no idea what anyone is talking about. I get that the twins have two different perspectives on wanting to hear what the rumor is. I would want to know, but everyone has the right to deal with things in their own way. Tune in next week to see how they do find out.
Well, again, everyone is referring us to next week’s episode and I am gonna be super pissed if this is not as big as the hype! Hopefully Mego is sober next week…
As I mentioned above, Bravo doesn’t trust Jac and Kathy so they decided to do their blogs as interview. Kinda lame, but we will make do with what we have.
Bravotv.com: What’s the latest with Rich and the kids? Kathy Wakile: Rich has his hands full these days between traveling with me to promote my newly released dessert cookbook, Indulge, and overseeing every detail for our new home construction — not to mention the other projects that he’s always working on. I think he’s going to need a vacation soon. Victoria and Joseph are back to school. Victoria is feeling great and piled on a bunch of classes to her schedule. This year is her third year at college, and she’s determined to finish this part of her degree in her four year term. Joseph is busy juggling his new status as a bio major during his freshman year at college. Over the summer Rich kept Victoria and Joseph busy by enrolling them in real estate school, and thankfully they both are managing to adjust well to getting back to school full time and working part time (while maintaining a very active social calendar). I wonder where they got that from…
<snore> I did put the new book on my hold list at my local library. I’m cheap. I will see if it is worth it before spending any cash.
Bravotv.com: What inspired you to build the new house? What’s your favorite feature? Have you moved in yet? KW: Rich has been after me for over fifteen years to move to a bigger house, but honestly I couldn’t even think about it until my kids finished high school. They had such a great experience growing up with the same friends from grade school, and I didn’t want to disturb that for them. However, since they have decided to stay local for college and to continue living at home, they each need their own space. They grew up surrounded by family and friends in our home, and they followed through with the love to entertain. Whether it’s with our family or their now adult friends, our home has always been the hub. And I love it! It’s what I live for. My dinner table can go from four to fourteen at any given seating, so I designed my home to revolve around the kitchen with a very open floor plan. Every room leads back to the heart of my home, the kitchen. We haven’t moved in yet, there’s still so much to do, but we are happy enjoying each step of the process.
Hoping that Kathy and Rich are not spending beyond their means. I always enjoyed that there home was “real” and not over the top like the others’.
Bravotv.com: How has your relationship with Teresa been? KW: My relationship with Teresa is pretty much where we left things off. She is going through a lot right now, and her time is focused on her husband and children as it should be. I am respecting her wishes and praying for a positive outcome for them all.
How many times can she get asked this question? I think the relationship issues with Kathy and Tre are very much about the issues their parents have with each other and until their parents repair their relationship, Tre and Kathy will never be close.
Tre totally “phoned it in” this week. I will cut her some slack a) because Kathy and Jac got a little blog space and b) she is busy trying to plan for her final walk of shame.
Wow. I really have so much to say. I will share, but I’m getting ready for the biggest day of our lives. I will be sharing when I can.
But now is the time when I need to focus on the next ten days and not comment on the episodes.
I love the show. I love my fans. I will be telling you all along with my Bravo family very soon.
Tanti Baci, Teresa
Curious, what does everyone think she will wear to court???
So Teresa finally understood that she is supposed to blog EVERY week and when she does, she should blog the current week’s episode. She gives us a two-fer this week so she is finally caught up. I am sure she read my re-cap last week and realized her mistake.
To give a recap of last week’s episode, before I do this week’s, I must start off with kudos to Dina! Yes! Finally someone with a brain! I also called Dina and thanked her for making sense of complete nonsense. Three key points she made: First, as soon as she heard the rumor from Teresa Giudice, she said, “I don’t believe that at all.” Second, “It didn’t happen.” And third, Dina’s comment in her interview was that she was more offended that someone would talk about someone’s mother. Thank you, Dina.
Well, I agree. Dina is the only one that reacted as a friend should react. She discredited this “rumor” from the moment she heard it. Ya know how when Lisa V. Didn’t defend Mauricio, yet Ken backed him up? This is similar. Dina had her friend’s back and kudos to her.
Getting to Rino and his “toucan underwear,” he just made everyone crack up and it was the highlight of the show for all of our friends — he really surprised me. He had us laughing for days. Regarding Rino’s colonoscopy, Rino felt strongly about filming this to bring awareness. Rino’s dad has prostate cancer and issues with his colon. It must have seemed repulsive to some viewers, but screening and early detection does save lives. Rino was concerned because of certain symptoms he was having, but thank God his tests came back perfect. On a silly note, it was so funny seeing him wake up from his anesthesia — I was hoping they would have shown the funny things he said when he woke up. LMAO!
The undies were a bit over the top, but we have seen worse so not such a BIG deal. I liked that Rino brought awareness without shoving it down our throats. Oh, and Teresa mentioned the c-word so <drink>.
Regarding Amber in church — I found it hideous of her to film on Ash Wednesday, which is a solemn and reflective day rather than a holiday like Easter when you tend to get dressed up and celebrate. To top it off, it was beyond ridiculous to leave church and see Amber hammering Teresa Giudice over the phone!
Agree. Geez, I am agreeing with her on everything. What is wrong with me today?
Getting to this week’s episode, all I can say is I loved seeing myself, Nicole, Dina, and Melissa going to Boca! Loved the pool scene in our bikinis, not to mention our pool boy who was very easy on the eyes. It was fun seeing all the girls working together in the kitchen. I was so happy being in Florida with this crew! I must say, I truly wish they would have shown more of the fun silly girl time by the pool. That day was a true blast! I wanted you all to see all of those good times before next week’s insane drama. I’d rather see more laughter than tears any day!
Longhot… can’t get it out of my head.
But next week get ready to rumble…
Well, we can’t say we weren’t warned.
Since the twins seem to do everything the same, Nicole has decided to give us a two-fer, too.
Today I’m finally catching up with this week’s and last week’s blog. Last week of course I loved watching my family having dinner at Teresa’s house with Dina and Lexi. I was excited to finally introduce my mother to Lexi and Dina, because I absolutely love their sweet, warm hearts. My nephew, Giovanni, and Dina’s daughter, Lexi, are two of the most incredible 18-year-olds out there! I love how they both enjoy being around family, and especially how they both have the utmost respect for their mothers. Speaking of children, I absolutely love watching Gia. I was disappointed when Teresa and Gia couldn’t make it for dinner that night. Watching Gia interact with her mom in the car, you really get to see how strong of a young lady she is. I give her so much credit for being so strong at her age given what she is going through; she is quite remarkable! Even watching her the following week going to look for houses with her mom, you see how all she truly cares about is her family and not the size of the house — very impressive.
<snore> I might be more interested if she had written this last week. Maybe.
The scene that I found most annoying was Amber being so nosey and prying into Teresa Giudice’s business. It was bad enough to bring the cameras into church on a solemn day to show how holy the Marcheses are (how Pharisaic), but then she leaves the church to make a phone call to Teresa Giudice. It was almost embarrassing how Amber could not take the hint that Teresa did NOT want to speak about it. On that note, I would like to move on to this past Sunday’s episode.
Amber seems to have made an ass of herself more often than not. She is not good at helping herself.
Finally the Florida trip is here! I love how you all get to see how all of us girls interacted and got along. We initially all planned this trip for Teresa Giudice to get her mind off of everything. I was upset when I found out she couldn’t go to Florida, because I was really looking forward to have some more girl bonding time with her, but I completely understood why she stayed home.
I do enjoy watching the episodes where everyone has fun and lets their hair down.
Our first night in Florida was an absolutely amazing day! Laying out by the pool and having just good, silly fun with my sister, Dina, and Melissa felt awesome. To finally be in warm weather with the sun beating down on all of us, having drinks poolside in this beautiful home on the Intracoastal was incredible. We were all on the same page about staying home that first night and just chilling. I must say, I do whip up an amazing dinner in a short amount of time. Teresa and I love to cook. (Except when Teresa is on vacation, not a chance, LOL!) I totally enjoyed preparing dinner for everyone that night. We had a great meal and we all seriously laughed for a long time around that table!
Yes, this was all fun and silly. Longhot…
The conversation did get a little heated outside after dinner. I love my sister more than anything, but yes, we do disagree and I think I got across how strongly I feel about “shut up.” I feel words are so powerful, so we must watch our words, especially with the people we love. One thing I do know is we are sisters and nothing will ever come between us, even if we don’t see eye to eye on everything. Regarding Dina, I could tell something was lying heavy on her heart and she wanted to tell us something. I never thought for a second she ever wanted to hurt us, but only help us.
I think Dina was way OVER dramatic about this whole thing. Let’s say the rumor comes out once Amber and the douche arrive…you SQUASH it and be done with it. BUT NO!!! Not when the producers are aiming for big ratings. Nicole closes and wishes us much love. Really she just means me!
Alright everyone. I am warning you upfront that this is a long one. So very very long. And Amber’s “ghostwriter” is including lots of facts so prepare yourself to shovel through the BS.
OK, so where can I start? “Breast cancer is the most common malignancy among American women, with more than 200,000 new cases diagnosed each year. In recent years mortality from breast cancer has declined in the U.S., likely as a result of more widespread screening resulting in earlier detection as well as advances in the adjuvant treatment of early-stage disease.” [Mettlin C. Global breast cancer mortality statistics.” CA Cancer J Clin 1999;49:138–144.] Most people are familiar with concept, but most do not know that studies use bench marks such as 5 year, 10 year, and 20 year measurements to determine likelihood of reoccurrence and survival. 5 year survival without reoccurrence is a major milestone to living cancer free. Jim and I agreed that we would make sure to raise awareness for younger women and hopefully make a difference in someone’s life. What we did not expect was the scare you saw this week. I can say with all honesty, I am aware that I am “sensitized” and/or “conditioned” to fear the worst. Any change to my medical routine causes panic. You may think I am overly dramatic, and you might be right. But then again, when I think back 5 years ago the last thing on my mind was cancer. My beautiful Isabella was a newborn and Corbin a handsome toddler. I was so happy with two little miracles and step sons by my side. The world was a perfect place, but my world changed in an instant when I discovered the lumps. At first, I thought it was nothing. But Jim and I discussed it and we decided to go get it checked out. After they ran the first test, I saw the doctor’s face and it all was a blur from there. Each test came back with more questions then came the 7 surgeries, multiple scans, MRIs, 1.5 years of chemo-therapy, and hundreds of blood tests. Till this day, every night before I go to bed I take medication to prevent reoccurrence; so every night that little white pill reminds me of my nightmare. But it also reminds me of my miracle.
I am not a heartless person. What Amber has been through sounds horrific. She has made it to the 5 year mark and chances of re-occurrence now are significantly lower. My thought is when does she live in “the now”?
I am so fortunate to have a family who supported me throughout; my mother and husband were the best support group anyone could ask. I had the greatest team of doctors and was fully informed of all my options. Ladies, remember you are in control, be informed and learn your options. I recently spoke with a newly diagnosis survivor who did not know she could have reconstruction at the same time as the mastectomy. Or that there were many treatment options. When I went for my mastectomy, my plastic surgeon and surgical oncologist performed the procedure together to make sure my breast looked better after the surgery than when I was 18, pretty amazing. Needless to say this made Jim very happy!
Again, I got nothing. However, I am skeeved that we are thinking of making Jim happy. Amber goes on to explain some crap about family crests and crafts. I am choosing to not bother exposing you to that nonsense.
Now on to the rest of the episode. I think it is funny that Joe Gorga thinks he is babysitting, but I will cut him some slack as he works hard to provide for his family. I was cracking up when Joe tried to talk to his Antonia about staying away from boys and that she not permitted to date until she is 35-years-old. Jim wholeheartedly agrees with Joe on this issue, you’re all shocked I am sure. Jim tells Isabella the same thing all the time. Italian dads are all cut form the same cloth.
This is a repeat from above. <snore>
It was nice to see Jacqueline and Kathy talking about life, and I enjoy their sincerity. My heart goes out to Jacqueline and Chris as they have a beautiful family and I cannot imagine how difficult it must be for them to see their child struggle. Jim and I respect the decisions they are making by putting CJ’s needs before a house or anything else for that matter. They are truly strong and loving parents.
This shows how little Amber knows about or cares about Jac; Nick is Jac’s son with autism, not CJ.
Watching this episode and seeing the previews of next episode, Melissa was such a pleasant surprise. This “fun loving,” sometimes silly girl is the Melissa that I knew and loved years ago! It was so great to see her “cut up” and have some fun. And let me tell, that girl has always had a great ass. I am totally jealous of that derriere.
Whatever. I recently told my husband that if he would build me a music studio in our basement I could then make an album and we would be set for life. He got up and helped himself to a beer. I don’t think I will be seeing that music studio in my unfinished basement very soon.
Florida, well, this is going to get interesting as you can see from the previews. But before we go there, did anyone catch Dina’s reaction to my call. She did not exactly seem pleased we were coming down or excited that I was in good health. I get the rumor was on her mind, but that was not exactly fair to me. Teresa told her about the Rino/Santa affair and she knew I was an unwilling witness to the Gotti testimony. I feel like I should be in witness protection or something. It was satirical watching Dina talk about my motives in gossiping and then watch her and Teresa Giudice gossip. What was suspicious is the way she tried to tell TeRESSA and Nicole about the affair. She starts out by saying Amber knows something. Why? I had nothing to do with this; she should have said Victoria Gotti told Amber and Teresa Giudice something. It was clear Dina was shifting the blame of the Gotti rumor from Gotti to me! I am calling out BS. This explains why the twins have blamed me for the rumor. It is sad, the twins have been angry at me, yet I agreed to keep it quiet and did not give it any credence. I am not a TeReSSa fan at all, but I cannot imagine how she must of felt. I am with her on this one, I don’t want it said and I don’t need to know. I would have demanded Dina to tell me in a more private setting and would have been offended if Dina decided to do that for the world to see.
I know I will have to eat my words…I kinda sorta maybe agree with her here??? Why is anyone but that fabulous Ms. Gotti getting credit for this rumor? Why did Dina spin this into something “Amber has over your head”. Hmmm…
Seeing this all played back to me, at first, I was so angry. However, as I watched it again, it has become quite comical. Between Teresa Giudice, Dina, and the twins, it seems like some sort of mass hysteria was taking them over. Clearly this caused them (especially Dina, who treated it like another funeral in her head) to have a lapse of judgment, when to me, this is still nothing more than a “your mama joke.” This should have been squashed and done with at this point and put in the books as one of the most ridiculous stories ever heard so we can all get on with our martinis. I think I am putting this one in the history books beating out the “dancing plague” of 1518 in Strasbourg, France as the most ridiculous of incident of mass hysteria to be recorded. The dancing plague, much like the Gotti rumor, made everyone dance until they died of stroke or heart attack believing in something that was not true.
POT MEET KETTLE!!! Is she seriously calling out others for dragging out a storyline? And WTF is the Dancing Plague? Her “ghostwriter” needs kudos for doing so much extensive research this week.
On a lighter note, Jim is glad I was not in Florida with just the girls. It would have been hard to explain the girls whistling to guys on a boat, comparing nipple guards, or the “golden showers/pearl necklaces” conversation while watching porn on Dina’s phone. I am a girls’ girl and get it, I think it’s hysterical. Jim, not so much.
Jim sounds like one of the douche guys who doesn’t want his wife having fun when he isn’t around and doesn’t trust her to use good judgement without him. What an ass. I am not looking forward to seeing these two ding-a-lings on next week’s episode.
RHONJ New Episode September 28
“Gators And Haters”
The trip to Florida continues as the brewing tension between Jim, Bobby, and Dina comes to a head. Meanwhile in New Jersey, Teresa struggles with how to respond to Jacqueline’s texts, and Rosie’s love life hits rocky waters.
