Opinion

Where to start? I guess it’s best to start at the beginning…what did Tre and Juicy wear to court?  They both looked incredibly understated compared to what they have been seen wearing to court.  Both wore black suits Tre wore a light colored blouse that appears to be pale pink or peach.  Joe wore a light blue suit and a dark blue subtle patterned tie.  They held hands and walked into court with their heads down. Miss Nancy Grace had her panties in a bunch about this on her show as she dedicated a whole segment to these two convicted felons.  Nancy was none too pleased about the amount of make-up and hair Teresa wore to the court.  I think if you know you are gonna be photographed and your pic is gonna be splashed from CNN to our little blogosphere, you might as well look good.

Upon their arrival before Judge Salas it sounds like she was none too pleased. She began picking apart their financial disclosures and the lack of including everything in the home.  Looks like their “probation” officers did a little stop to check in and came upon recreational vehicles, an older corvette, construction equipment and other items not in the disclosure.  The Judge was PISSED!  I read somewhere that she was leaning one way (possibly towards lenience for Tre) and then realized these two jackwagons were still playing games.  I would think at this point one would realize the lies have not worked.  Like a bankrobber that keeps getting caught.  Maybe you need to choose a different profession?  Since their lies have all caught up with them you would think they would have filled those forms down to the very last Q-tip in the cupboard and the very last bottle of wine in the cellar.  Some people never learn.

Joe was sentenced first. There was a lot of letter reading and statements.  Joe made a statement and it sounds as though he wasn’t as remorseful as the Judge thought he should be.  The Judge did however seem to acknowledge Joe’s strong love of his children and family and that would explain why he did not get the maximum sentence.  Seems as though the judge didn’t believe Joe fully understood the consequences of his actions.  I am SHOCKED by Filomena’s statement that her son should only get a “slap on the wrist” but this might explain why Joe is in his current predicament.  Perhaps Filomena is one of those old-school Italian moms who believe their son can do no wrong.  Maybe Joe had never been forced to pay the piper.  Well, Judge Salas was not his mom nor does she appear to be Italian.  Joe is gonna pay the piper for 41 months.  I did read or hear somewhere that his attorneys are trying to have part of his sentence served in re-hab.  Sounds like Juicy has a little prob with the homemade wine.  Who woulda thought?

Judge took a recess before handling Tre’s sentence. Tre read her statement and showed great emotion.  She spoke about her kids and how she planned to do better (I looked everywhere for a complete statement as I wanted to count all the “and, ums and likes” but couldn’t find a complete statement anywhere).  I think the Judge believed her and felt that Tre really understood the consequence of her actions.  I still believe that Juicy was the mastermind and Tre was an ignorant partner (like she turned a blind eye to a lot and figured Juicy knew what he was doing).  Did she know what was going on was wrong?  I think she did.  Did she understand to what extent it was?  I don’t think so.  Tre is blinded by her love for Juicy.  She is also blinded by shiny things.

Last night I began scrolling through all the websites and reading the details. Yes, they are sordid and ridiculous.  Did these two rocket scientists go on a last minute shopping spree before their sentencing?  Was Juicy in such a state of grief after losing his father that he completely forgot to pay the taxes that were due before the sentencing?  But the most important question is left unanswered.  Did they ever once when choosing to bring 4 beautiful girls into their lives think about their actions and decide it was in the best interests of their daughters to lead an honest life?  Those 4 girls (especially Gia) do not deserve any of this.  Their lives will now be framed by the day their mom went to prison, they day their dad goes to prison and the day their dad possibly gets deported.  I would feel sorry for Joe’s mother, but it sounds as though she didn’t do a very good job raising him to begin with so shame on her!

As I sit typing this today, Bravo is airing season one of RHONJ. We are reminded of those scenes when Tre thumbed her nose at living in a house that someone else has lived in.  I wonder how many people were in that cell they have reserved for her on January 5th?  Joe paid CASH for all that furniture and was quite generous when tipping the laborers that delivered the furniture.  I doubt Joe is gonna have that much tip money when this is all said and done.  Tre got her “bubbies” during season one.  I wonder if those were put on plastic if the government can repossess them.  I am mostly struck by Joe during this particular season.  He was one happy-go-lucky guy.  “Happy wife, happy life!”  Oh how the mighty have fallen.

Dina on Bobby’s Bizarre Behavior

Have you ever heard of an empath? Well I am one of the many roaming the earth; I absorb feelings and emotions around me, and let me tell you, the range of emotions in this Boca house was off the charts. 

Well, who knew? I sure as hell didn’t, but I googled it and found a handy dandy test to find out if I, too, was an Empath.  Here are my results:

Your Super Serious Title is: The Unicorn Goddess Empath Your Total Score: 63 out of 80 Your Out of Control Healer Score: 9 out of 10 Your Protection Tools Score: 18 out of 25 How Much You Mirror Others Unconsciously Score: 13 out of 15 Your Appreciation for Nature Score: 8 out of 10 You scored pretty high on the overall results. It is highly likely that you are an empathy.

All I care about is that I am a Unicorn Goddess and that means I totally rock. If you’d like to find out if you are a Unicorn, too go to www.empathtest.com .

I think I was mostly taking on Nicole’s feelings, maybe because I have gone through a lot in my own relationships and I connected with the feeling of being disappointed in someone you thought would always have your back. Bobby had no idea what he was contributing to by not coming out of the bathroom. Well no, I take that back, ALL of us including myself tried to get him out of there and let him know what was happening downstairs. It was bizarre to say the least, but I will say we were all drinking too much that night. We had a very light dinner before this all went down, but the tequila and Belvedere were flowing.

I have never in my life seen a man hide in a bathroom to avoid confrontation. I would totally hide in a bathroom to avoid it but a.) I’m a girl and b.) I’m an empath so I am sure hiding in bathrooms is something an empath would do.  (Although if someone yells “Marco” I promise to respond “Polo”.)

I knew something like this would happen, and that was my urgency in telling TerEsa what was swirling behind her back. If this all went down and she found out I knew and didn’t say anything, I would feel horrible. I stand by what I did and don’t look at it as sh– stirring or gossiping at all. Giving a friend a heads up in my opinion is the right thing to do, and I would do it again…maybe just a little differently next time.  I was in a lose-lose position, and in my book TerEsa gets a pass for whatever reaction she has. If someone was saying such horrific things about my mother, I don’t know what I would do. 

Yes Teresa and Nicole get a pass once that verbal diarrhea is spilled. All bets are off when you accuse a husband of sleeping with your mom.  That is so far below the belt it is beyond reason.

So bummed you couldn’t see the rest of our Everglades trip. It was SOOO much fun to explore the swamp and what lives in it. I’m not just talking about gators! Hopefully it will make the lost footage. I wish the show could be about all the fun times we had, the bonding that I’m not sure now was as genuine as I thought it was. I won’t let that change me, I choose to see the good in people and I know my side of the street is authentic and sincere. 

It does sound and look like they were all having fun before the douche-bag arrived. I think if Amber had come alone, they would have carried on and had fun.  Jim is a pig.  He is pond scum. Dina closes by thanking everyone for the emails, tweets, Facebook messages, etc.  Dina must like stalkers.

Jim and Amber were on Different Pages

Melissa greets us and moves right in…

I think my facial expressions say it all in this episode. Wow, wow, wow! I sometimes just can’t understand why certain things come out of people’s mouths! Yes, Jim went there! I was hoping to have Jim and Amber come in and really get along with the group and just have a great time. I honestly think Amber thought that she was going to just wipe the slate clean and try to start over with the twins as well. Jim and Amber were definitely on two different pages that night. I’ve always been one to argue my point and speak up when someone has something to say to me that I don’t agree with. But I can never really understand why people just randomly spew information with the intent to hurt. To just sit there and instigate and then continue to ramble on with words that can hurt a family is just wrong. 

Oh, yes, Jim went THERE. I have always been a big believer in respect marital and relationship boundaries.  Jim goading Nicole by telling her Bobby shared things with him is just ridiculous.  Amber and Jim both claim they were such wonderful friends with Bobby for all those years and now they haven’t missed an opportunity to stab him in the back and twist the knife.  Jims intention was not to inform Nicole about her philandering boyfriend; it was solely to shoot for the heart and then shoot again.  It was cruel.

On a positive note, I loved seeing the family scenes in this episode. That’s what life is about! Sitting together, eating good food, and discussing what’s important, issues they may be having, feelings. Having a supportive family is like no other comfort in the world! 

These scenes always make me wish I had grown up in a larger family. I only have one sibling.  Then I watch scenes of the family fights and I am grateful I have only one brother.

I will say Jacqueline and Teresa probably still have a long way to go. But I do believe in forgiveness and moving on. I really hope they can both find it in their hearts to be forgiving and try to restart the friendship that they once had.

I don’t see Tre and Jac getting together and braiding each other’s hair in the very near future. Just sayin’.

Well, the craziness continues next week so tune in to see how this Florida trip ends. 

Oh, my tummy hurts already thinking about this mess. Mego reminds us to check out her jewelry line on her website.  As I said before, it looks like nice costume jewelry and reasonably priced so that the everyday gal could imagine herself in her own music studio in the basement.

Dina was Planning a Blood Bath

OK, let’s just look at the title of this blog…Dina was Planning a Blood Bath…that’s taking it a bit far. We know where this is going.  She starts out whining about the twins writing about the ridiculous Ash Wednesday scene.  And I don’t think the twins were making fun of you for GOING to Ash Wednesday services…it was the FILMING of yourself making a complete ass out of yourself.  I guess the twins could have held their tongues because the scene spoke for itself.  She goes on to ramble about her faith.  I am not dogging her faith as I, too am Catholic.  I make fun of people who talk so high and mighty yet behave like dirty dogs.  As my mom reminds me, gossip is just a different kinda murder.  Amber was sad that Rosie and Ellen aren’t together.  Um, they never were.  (Your welcome.  I saved you from reading 3 run-on paragraphs.)

Florida, OH, Florida. This is not how I wanted it to turn out on any level. This is a difficult blog for me to write, because it will be a lot of explaining Jim’s perspective as I was outside with Dina and trying to get Bobby to come out of the bathroom. I can say, I wish that none of it happened and feel that it was a mistake to mix alcohol with friends that have so many unresolved issues. Jim does not think any of these people are my true friends

I hate to butt in here, but I will! NO!  None of these ladies are your friend Amber!!!  For once, Jimmy is right!

 and thought I was being set up plain and simple. And now seeing how Dina told the twins, his hunch was damn accurate. I had high hopes for everyone just having a blast. I am the “forgive and forget” type — love, peace, and happiness, it comes from my Mom’s hippie side, I guess. Jim is in stark contrast. He went down with good intentions, but was ready to unleash hell at the first sign of trouble. My husband loves me, and if everyone reached out to me with open arms, asked me about my health, and Bobby acknowledged him instead of treating him like a jerk, things could have been different. Instead Bobby was arrogant and self-righteous. Bobby should have been a man and at the first sign of discord took Jim aside to hash things out. A simple apology or even a display of remorse for what happened at his home would have gone a long way. This would have given them a chance to understand one another, prevented the awful fiasco, and saved Nicoel from heartache. Jim gave it a chance, walked in, smiled, said hello to the gentlemen. Bobby returned it with a cold and rude reaction; he ignored him and made stupid faces behind his back like a little boy. Just like a foolish child, Bobby did not realize Jim could see in the windows and heard his comments. 

I am still so baffled as to why Dina brought this up to begin with. It really wasn’t her place to say anything to Nicole or Teresa.  She should have waited until Amber got there, pulled Amber aside and said, “Teresa told me about Ms. Gotti’s verbal diarrhea.  I don’t believe a damn word of it as I assume you don’t either.  Let’s both agree to end it here and not say a word!  I wanna have fun!  Can I braid your hair?”  Why don’t they call me before going on these vacations?  I would be so helpful.

Because Bobby acted like a child, Teresa saw her sister upset and went at Jim really hard. It appeared TerESSA was doing Bobby’s dirty work. TerESSA kept coming at Jim even though Jim did not have a cross word to say about her sister. But unsatisfied, TerESSA crossed the line. Jim went back at her as hard as she went at him. She made comments about his privates, kids, and much, much worse. Problem is, she picked the worst person to pick a fight with as Jim was still pissed about the ambush at Bobby’s house, the hair pulling, and the backstabbing by Bobby with bowling night. 

Again, butting in, I don’t care if she accused Jim of having a threesome with his sister AND his mother, Jim had no right to say any of the horrible things he said. Bottom line.  Men need to learn to be MEN.  Women fight with words.  Men talk trash to each other.  A man (a real man) would NEVER do that to another woman.  SHAME SHAME WE KNOW YOUR NAME!  (Goonies reference…)

In addition, he had not forgotten how she insulted our children on multiple occasions, for example calling my child “a little f—ing kid.”(you had not known this yet since you were still in filming)  I truly hope you see how much TerESSA kept after Jim. He was on the couch talking to Melissa and Joe very calmly. It took a lot for Jim to get to that point. Joe’s contention that men need to treat women differently only applies when a lady acts like a lady. (I hate myself for interrupting… but Jim should have WALKED AWAY!  If he had a real set of BALLS he would have gotten out of the room!) You want to take it to a nasty level, then you get what you give. TerESSA has one of the most vile, venomous mouths going, and she has hand problems. She did not behave as a lady, so she was not treated as one. TerESSA learned a lesson in life about what happens when you attack someone that was smarter, sharper, and has more hurtful information. I have not forgotten the smug, pleased look TerESSA had when she and Nicole attacked me. TerESSA is not smiling anymore. Joe gave Jim sh– for talking to TerESSA, but Rino hid up the street just two miles away and Bobby was in bathroom. TerESSA drinks way, way too much and does not know when to keep her mouth shut. A matter she will regret next week as you can see in previews. 

I am rethinking all this and perhaps Bobby was the smartest one in the house trying to stay as far away from the drama as possible. Unfortunately, that does not make good TV.

I am still trying to understand what Bobby thought he would accomplish by hiding in the bathroom from Jim. At that point, Jim was having a little fun at his expense, but the whole group was intoxicated. We were all acting stupid. Bobby could have made light, joked around, and had some fun, but instead ran up the stairs as Nicole said like “la Donna.” I guess Bobby only likes drama when it involves setting others up or trying to look cool with his new celebrity friends. He had no problem calling Nicole stupid and pushing her off his lap. Stupid for what? Those are her feelings. What shocked Jim the most is that Jim was actually defending Nicole, and then TeRESSA literally took Bobby’s side. The entire group constantly calls Jim names, attack his manhood, privates, and his height as if Rino, Bobby, and Joe are accomplished big guys! These should be the last people to address my husband on this issue. Although I wish this never happened, I do firmly believe that if you don’t act like a lady, you shouldn’t expect to be treated like one. 

WOW! She and Jim accept no blame.  They were all wrong, but noone seems to be owning their shit.  She goes on to ramble and I just can’t take it anymore.  She think’s Rino is “lame” for not being there.  I think he is a genius.  Jim quoted Revelations 6:8 “Behold a pale horse his name that sat upon him was…”  Um, what about Matthew 5:39 “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.”  Again, I am gonna save you some time and tell you she goes on to re-hash her chat with Dina.  I think it was weird.  Again, Dina had no business getting involved in this.  It was ridiculous and I agree with Amber.  She believes Dina was spinning the gossip to sound as though the whole rumor came from her which comes back to her belief that Dina was planning a blood bath.

None of this is good, drinking alcohol without food is no good, my white eye liner is not good. I truly feel the twins are nothing but foolish puppets believing and trusting people that they should not trust. They place blame on the most convenient party as it serves their self-love and misguided hatred. This makes me smile though, remembering the best line in a movie ever, “Vanity, one of my favorite sins,” (Al Pacino, The Devil’s Advocate).

Um, is Amber suggesting she is not vain? This whole group is a vain bunch of bitches.  I have never seen such vain girls as those we have seen in housewives.  I did love The Devil’s Advocate and could watch Al Pacino plant grass…he is awesome!

Kathy Talks Kevin Jonas

Well, Bravo is still not trusting Kathy to write her own blog without talking about her dessert book. BOO!

Bravotv.com: How did you end up hiring Kevin Jonas as your contractor? How has it been working with him? Kathy Wakile: Rich and I were introduced to Kevin Jonas and his partner Bill Werner through our mutual friend and realtor. There were a few very good qualities in their building style that we were drawn to, in particular the fact that they were practical in their construction approach and goals. And Kevin has an extensive knowledge of home automation and electronic features for the home.

Where does one go to find a celebrity builder? Does Angie’s List have a tab for that?

Bravotv.com: Are the kids excited about the new house? KW: Victoria and Joseph are very excited about the new house, especially the closets, which in fact is one of the biggest reasons that we finally decided to move and start this project. They are excited about everything we do as a family. If we are together, we have fun and are creating memories for a lifetime. Family is as important to them as it is to me and Rich, so the more our house is a home full of laughter and experiences we all share, that is the perfect thing for us as we grow as a family.

Do I remember correctly? I thought Victoria was at a local college and possibly living at home (perfect choice for her given her recent medical scare so good for her for staying close to home).  Does anyone know what Joseph is doing now?  School?  Work?

Bravotv.com: Has Rosie been a big help in building the new house? KW: Rosie has been involved and is always a big help to our family. Rosie is Senior Project Manager for a company that manufactures high-end furniture and interiors for retails stores, so interiors and their infrastructure is her specialty. It has been a big help with our closet designs and organization build out –this way it is high functioning and designed properly.

That’s weird. We have seen Rosie on the show for years and I never knew what she did for a living.  Interesting.

Bravotv.com: Has Rosie had any luck in dating? KW: Rosie had a great summer, and she enjoyed getting out and meeting new people… I’m so thrilled for my sister, she has some really exciting things happening in her life right now, but I will leave that to her to share with you all.

Good for Kathy for not getting sucked into that question.

Manzo’d With Children

The premiere episode of this spin off from Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Caroline Manzo and her family.  Lynn’s Place has plenty of people who love to snark on this fambly, but does not have a volunteer to recap this show.  Please email if your interested in recapping, what I assume will be a limited number of episodes.

Here’s a summary of the season from BravoTV.com:

This season, Caroline Manzo attempts to be the ring leader of her crazy Italian family while suffering from a severe case of full nest syndrome in the process. In an effort to be responsible and save up for a new apartment, Albie and Chris have made their way back to Franklin Lakes, and even though Lauren is now engaged, she still hasn’t left chez Manzo. Albie brings his new girlfriend along for the ride and the two encounter more than just a few bumps in the road when trying to win over the rest of the Manzo clan. In addition to planning the wedding of the century, Lauren is also trying to expand her beauty bar business and she refuses to let her brothers cramp her style. Chris just can’t seem to stay out of sticky situations, especially when the whole family decides to take a trip to the heart of Texas. When it all gets to be too much for Caroline, sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita is just around the corner to offer her advice. Meanwhile, husband, Al Sr., has no tolerance for all these shenanigans, as he’d rather focus on his upcoming 30th wedding anniversary to the woman who brings everyone together.

    Happy Birthday Cathy Conner!

    New Blog, maybe TMI for some “Please! Don’t sit with shoes on the toilet” http://wp.me/p4kxEH-pv

  2. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Good day everyone. 😀

    Thanks to Namaste for putting together an extra edition blog to cover recent events and all the bells and whistles she puts in her blog. I enjoyed it and hope alla youse do too!

  3. Veena (NMD) says:

    Thank you for a great summary Namaste. I found this article interesting:
    http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/teresa-giudice-almost-got-probation-instead-of-prison-time-details-2014310

    “Teresa Giudice Was Close to Getting Probation Instead of Prison Sentence: Find Out What She Did Wrong”

    The judge said this to Teresa:

    “I’ve seen a lot but I’ve never seen the confusion and work that went into these financial documents…I need a full picture of who you are, I need a full disclosure of your financial assets. It’s not because I want to be nosy. Because of that, I don’t think you respect the laws of this country. You are not as bad as your husband, you do not have the criminal record that he has had, but you are complicit in it. Getting this financial information that I need to judge this case was like pulling teeth, it was the most difficult in all my years as a judge and as a lawyer.”

    • Powell says:

      Thks NMD. The judge’s words just make me go “DAMN!”. 👀👀
      See I thought the judge would have given Tre house arrest but she almost got probation. DAMN! If they’d just provided truthful financials and been honest w/the court Tre wouldn’t have had to worry about any prison time. Do they see that?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        It’s amazing that when they were CAUGHT, they still displayed shady behavior. HELLLOOOOOO….they’re on to you. Old habits die hard.

      • mm in oc says:

        Im confused about the financials assessment. Wouldnt you bring a 3rd party in to do this? How would the layman be able to properly assess the value of 5 yr old furniture? what about depreciation? It doesnt make sense to me. I thought in casee of tax evasion the fees bring in experts to assess.

    • OK, that speaks VOLUMES! Did these jackwagons really think the judge was gonna fall for their lies? I think this is the sole reason why Tre did not get probation/house arrest.

    • ladebra says:

      So Joe has a prior record? I didn’t know that.

      • vilzvet says:

        I believe he has a record of around 7 arrests, of which half are probably DWIs! Would like to know for sure.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        One charge was for attacking a woman’s head. Beating her head. Giving her… No, it’s not funny, he could have killed her. He’s been getting away with ugly criminal behavior for a long time, it seems.

    • Exit4 says:

      I imagine that everyday from now until April 2016-that will be in Teresa’s head. If only we were honest in the filings I wouldn’t be here.

      When people are hardwired to the scheme, it’s impossible even when facing the consequences, to break that. It becomes the fabric of your being. Powell said it last night in response to a comment I made. We CANT understand it because we don’t think like that. I think that’s why judge salas-even though she saw that teresa was less culpable-gave her the jail sentence. She’s not just forcing her to pay for the crimes. She’s forcing her to break that mindset-and probation or house arrest wouldn’t have accomplished that.

      • Powell says:

        I think that’s so true. Hopefully by the time Jan 5 rolls around Joe will “GET IT”.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Great comment. “Hard wired to the scheme”. That the Guidice’s in a nutshell.

        • T-Rex says:

          I agree great comment, and personally I don’t think even a year in jail and then being a single mom for another three years will change her. These ConvictFelons, will continue their deplorable behaviour regarding money and will keep ripping folks off and spending money they don’t have, why because they don’t think they have done anything wrong!

  4. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy Saturday. It’s dreary but at least we’re not on the brink of S N O W like Illinois is expecting. Brrrrr. I hope you have a great Saturday.

  5. Powell says:

    Happy Birthday Cathy.

  6. Powell says:

    So Namaste when is Namaste Jr. getting his car? He must’ve been promised something to drink that water? 🙂

  7. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Rebecca – so sorry your comments are going to a spam folder…I have no idea why, it’s the same address you used before. Maybe the WordPress upgrade is not dragon friendly?!

  8. Powell says:

    Um is Melissa serious?! “But I can never really understand why people just randomly spew information with the intent to hurt. To just sit there and instigate and then continue to ramble on with words that can hurt a family is just wrong.” This was her mantra from epi1 of the Gorgas joining the cast. That’s all she did to constantly and internationally hurt Tre. Or was I living in the twilight zone and dreamt it all? 😱😱

  9. plainviewsue says:

    Happy birthday Cathy!!!!

    Teresa WAS in the episode!!!!! I loved the scenes at Joe’s brother’s house with all of the family. It was so sad to see her dad. They were joking around about how the Guidice family name is over, since there are no grandsons. The dad was joking he’d get a younger woman to have a son.

    I would imagine tomorrow’s reunion taping will be focusing a lot on the twins and Amber. I would think it’ll only be two parts. I read all the husbands, plus Kathy & Rosie (why????) will be there. I guess Bravo wants Rosie, and it would be a slap in Kathy’s face not to invite her. Thank goodness Jac won’t be there.

  11. Austin says:

    Great recap of the blogs. I think Amber is just vile and her husband isn’t worth even acknowledging. I’ve rarely seen someone with so little self-awareness, and that’s saying a lot on this show. The sooner she leaves the show, the better.

    I have never cared for Teresa G. but I do hope that everything goes as well as it can for her from this point forward. If the Teresa we’ve seen this season, minus the willfull ignorance and the ridiculous level of denial, turned out to be the new Teresa, that would be an improvement. I don’t think she masterminded any of this, but I do believe she closed her eyes and signed where Joe told her to, which makes her responsible, as well. I have a feeling that Teresa’s whole family operates on a massive level of denial, and I think she was raised to not even consider anything unpleasant, to just block it out of her mind. Considering the consequences for an action taken is just unpleasant, so Teresa just pushed any of those considerations right out of her mind and did the equivalent of plugging her ears with her fingers and chanting, “la-la-la-la-la-la” whenever the subject came up between her and Joe. That coupled with her enormous sense of entitlement, a low IQ, and a husband with a criminal mind was just a recipe for disaster.

    I do truly believe they love their girls and I’m glad that the children won’t have to be shuffled between relatives while their parents are serving their sentences. People say, “Well, if they love their children, why didn’t they consider how this would affect them?” and it’s a fair question, but these are just *not* people with the capacity for foresight and I think they were both raised to believe that the piper never shows up demanding to be paid (as evidence by Joe’s mother’s letter). I don’t think they sat there and thought, “Wow, this could hurt our kids” because they didn’t have the capacity to consider that they would get caught and what would happen if they did. They assumed that wouldn’t happen because no consequences heretofore had been visited upon them for anything in the past. Although I would never assign blame to their parents, I do think it’s clear that both Joe and Teresa are examples of parenting failures.

    At any rate, I hope they take this opportunity to reflect, especially Teresa. And I would read “Orange is the New Black” if was her (the book,not the Netflix production).

    • I have not read the book. Is it worth the read? I have watched the series and loved it!

      • vilzvet says:

        I also FF through Amber and Jim’s scenes. When I was watching Season 1 today I found myself speeding right through Danielle’s parts, too, she always made me so uncomfortable. The whole show needs to be overhauled, no one in the current cast keeps my interest.
        I’m wondering if there are any serious buyers yet for either of the Guidice houses? It is a safe bet that Teresa will get out of jail and will NEVER see the inside of her house again, as it probably will be sold in the next year. How on earth is Joe going to handle the girls, selling the houses, etc., cooking, cleaning, getting them to school, etc.? It’s going to be very difficult as Teresa did all the home tasks.

        • Powell says:

          It’s been alleged that Joe’s had affairs. Do you suppose he’ll have some GF help him?

        • I am thinking Tre’s mom will be moving in with them if she hasn’t already been living in the apartment over the garage…unless Joe’s mom is living there already!

        • ladebra says:

          So here is what I don’t get …. If Joe really needs rehab, is it in the best interest of the girls to be in his care. Normally this wouldn’t have come out, but when your lawyer says in open court he should go into rehab instead of jail, that cat is out of the bag – ship has sailed? Anyway you know what I mean. Where’s the advocate for the kids? And if Joe doesn’t really need rehab, wth is his lawyer lieing to the court?

      • austin1963 says:

        Oh, Namaste, the book is much better. I am biased, as I am a voracious reader of any sort of memoirs, but I’ve also seen all of the television production, and it doesn’t hold a candle to the book.

    • Powell says:

      And Austin isn’t it funny how Joey bought into the recycling biz and I bet dollars for donuts that Mel signed right where he told her to.
      This needs to be a wake-up call to everyone that blindly go into ventures, sign docs, have a blind eye to what people they trust and love tell them. Sometimes it’s international, sometimes it’s unintentional. You have to look out for yourself, do what’s right, do what’s lawful.

      • kit9 says:

        Teresa didn’t sign anything blindly. She was present at the closings and knew damn well what was going on and her part in the scheme. There’s also the bankruptcy where Teresa, all on her own, lied in her statement trying to hide her income. She is a pathological liar and I think she and Joe are true grifters. Everything is a con, a job to be worked and the court, up till the very end, was no different. It’s like they view being honest and truthful as being a sucker.

        • T-Rex says:

          In addition ConvictFelonLyinTeresa BOASTS she has some college degree! Look you can’t have the IQ of a knat and still get a degree at those illegal online colleges, you have to have some sort of brain matter engaged. As I have said before I believe that ConvictFelonLyinTeresa uses the “ditzy broad” card when it SUITS her, and of course in this court case, to try and make it look like she didn’t know what was going on. I also believe as Kit does, that she was 100 percent completely involved in this con game, and knew exactly what her Criminal Husband was doing and didn’t care as long as the money was coming in to create a lifestyle they weren’t and still aren’t entitled to.

          • austin1963 says:

            Well, people will disagree, as we do on this issue. Understanding there was more nuance involved in Teresa’s involvement is not the same as saying she’s innocent in any way.

        • austin1963 says:

          I never intended to suggest there was no intent. What I do think is that Teresa tried to put herself in a position of plausible deniability (which didn’t end up being plausible), but she is no mastermind. She was so addicted to the easy cash that she signed anything to get it, but was able to claim ignorance because she was willfully ignorant about what was really going on. In other words, I think she knew that there was plenty nefarious going on, but I think Joe’s always pulled some type of scam before, and always pretty much gotten away with it, so Teresa trusted him as long as the gravy train kept rolling.

  12. Austin says:

    Oh, Mood Goddess Empath here, too. 70 out of 80. It said I need a lot of energy work for my 2nd chakra (???) and to meditate in the forest more. Okey-dokey. lol

    Chismosa Tre/her ghostwriter will be a way to help get them out of debt. IMO she should do a book first. While she’s in VA or CT wherever she goes she should be putting pen to paper. Also she needs to think about what else to do whether it’s more cookbooks, hair care. Tre can make money. We’ve all said she’s a hard worker. She doesn’t need to do reality tv. You know Andy/Bravo will try to get her to do something.

    • Exit4 says:

      I wrote yesterday that if there’s a season 7-we may see joe and their kids. The other wives visiting or helping them out-especially the gorgas. I’d present that to joe if I was a network person. Film teresa before she goes away. And if the show makes it to her release-they’ll bring her back, in some form. I’m sure someone involved with the show is crafting the comeback tale-everyone loves that.

    • chismosa says:

      Of course they’re doing this and i don’t understand anyone supporting them to pay back for their own criminal deeds. No thanks.
      Even if I was a real fan of theirs, hearing how the judge admonished them both – after having SOOOOOO
      LOOOOOONG to prepare for this?

      I’d wash my hands clean of them.
      But I guess she’s like a brandi- has her “brigade” and all. Regardless of
      A n y t h i n g. 🙈🙇

      They’ll never leave her and support paying back their misdeeds.
      Yo TRE just start “Tre Credit Card” – your many fans would gladly help out and contribute!
      Kickstarter and all!

      Instead I’ll buy the many many
      M A N Y other moroccan, argan, et al oil hair products out there. Far superior stuff out there with no convicts and reality TV players playing their fans attached.
      Same with food products and wow – an italian cookbook – so hard to find those too!!
      😏

      The teresa crinkly far less voluminous hair of season 1 is her real hair. (When people question why I think she wears clip-ins)

      The bubbies and the fertility treatments. Yikes. The fertility stuff truly sticks in my craw. ⛳️

      And EXIT – I love what you are saying about not thinking like them —- but that’s like saying – well- how can I understand this man abusing his son – oh he was abused.
      Or the pedophile does this – because he can’t help it. Or the sociopath did this and I can’t get it because I am human and have EMPATHY.
      (I have to take that stupid test)

      Or why this drug addict committed this —, oh I don’t think like her since I’m not in her shoes.
      Or this —— committed ——– to this ——–

      “I can’t get it because I am not like them.” Ehhhhh
      😬

      • Exit4 says:

        You have to come up with a better name then teresa brigade-its gotta start with T. I’m Going to think of one! Lol! I like her, obviously, but I don’t excuse her behavior! Same as I can understand why a pedo does what they do-but its not ok! Not that you can even remotely compare molestation and what teresa and juicy did! But that’s me-I know there’s other fans out there who believe she can do no wrong ever. I do believe with the mortage stuff joe was the leader. The taxes were all him-she wasn’t even charged. But the lying on the bankruptcy and after? That was all her-no excuses for that-even if I can understand it.

        What if Brandi got indicted for the same thing? It would be all eddie and Leanns fault! Lol.

    What I don’t understand about the paperwork is didn’t their lawyers even look at the paperwork and question them on what they listed? Such as “what only have $25,000 in furniture in your house , your house is full of furniture and it’s worth more than that. Just simple questions like that. Sounds like I’m addition to not being smart theirselves they hired idiots for attorneys. I’ve been gone for the last 10 days so am trying to catch up and forgot they were going to be sentenced the other day. We went to the New England states to see the changing of the leaves, beautiful. I’ve never been there before, I’m in love with Vermont.

    • T-Rex says:

      Mrs P as my attorney cousin pointed out their lawyers can only deal with what is given to them. I could see those two lying ConvictedFelons handing them the paperwork and saying that’s “all we are giving them”, and the lawyers just have to roll with it, especially last minute. The lawyers can’t jump up and say anything against their clients, they can be sued for that, it’s not like television. So they deal with what they are given from their lying scheming jackwagon clients!

    She speaks via Twitter…”Hi, I just want to be clear there will be no Fabellini appearance this week. Stay Tune for further appearance announcements.”

    • T-Rex says:

      I would guess a bit of both, She really didn’t make that much money and I would BET that both of these companies has something called an “ethics” clause, most companies do, and maybe they decided that since she has been sentenced she is no longer a proper spokesperson. Also, I don’t think that ConvictFelonLyinTeresa’s super-duper-overinflated ego could stand folks coming to see her to heckle her. I would hope folks would be grownups and not do this sort of thing, but people do suck.

Oh yeah and NOBODY has as close of a bond with their offspring like Dina. Puh-leeze

    • Agreed. But wondering if they are looking to the next season when planting Dina in there…knowing Tre will be “away” they will need a draw. Will they bring Jac back full time thinking has no other means of income? Will Joe get a spin-off with Dina stopping by to check his chakra and aura? I would enjoy watching Juicy deal with those girls while Tre is away. Maybe Rosie can come over and help!

      Well they should have thought of the consequences when after pleading GUILTY to the federal felony charges, then they turned around after TWO sentencing contuances that were REQUESTED by their attorneys as I have learned, and LIED LIED LIED to the courts about their spending, salaries and assets. They apparently also lied to the judge about some of the monies they had also earned. Sorry, it’s awful that they are going to jail but they brought it on THEMSELVES, they haven’t learned jack-squat, and they will probably go on WWHL and blame their predicament on everything but themselves. I guarantee they will absolutely use the “they did this to us because we are famous” crap.

      • chismosa says:

        It will be interesting to see. I feel like they’re going to act all contritious at their 1 on 1 —- and not blame the fame. But we’ll see.

          Chisy- The ConvictFelonJuicy’s apparently have put it “out there” that Reality TV “IS THIER LIFE” and they will do anything to keep their jobs with Bravo, which is why she did the Reunion, from what is being written at fairly reputable sources. They are FAMEWHORES to the max, PLUS where else are they going to make 250KPlus a year for a few months of actual work. I will say this, Bravo would be stupid to let these two fools go though, at least until ConvictFelonTeresa is out of Prison. Of course as the ConvictFelons have also previously stated, that if Bravo fires them they will pimp themselves out to another network for a Reality show. Again, I don’t think they have learned a danged thing, they aren’t going to pay back anyone they owe money to, and will continue to live the millionaire lifestyle and screw the rest of the world. Of course now they are on the Fed Gubmint radar, and if they do anything stupid in Prison or on probation they could end up back in prison. Still awaiting the State Charges plea deal, which I believe will mean that ConvictFelonJuicy will have to spend 100% of his 41 months in Prison, we shall see

IF she is such an Empath, she would help in getting her family back together instead of enjoying that they are having major issues between all the siblings.

    Sarah Jessica Parker and Costars Tease New Sex and the City Movie
    Sarah Jessica Parker and Costars Tease New Sex and the City Movie
    Sarah Jessica Parker
    BILL DAVILA/STARTRAKSPHOTO.COM

    BY RENNIE DYBALL

    It’s been four years since Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda have appeared together on the big screen. And after the chilly reception for Sex and the City 2, it seemed we may never see the fabulous friends together again.

    But wait just a New York minute.

    After Jennifer Hudson hinted at a return for the franchise on Dish Nation, Carrie and Charlotte themselves (Sarah Jessica Parker and Kristin Davis) seemed to fuel the fire on Twitter.

    “@SJP Miss YOU XOXOXO!! <3," Davis Tweeted Friday, along with a photo of herself and her costar at the Sex and the City 2 premiere.

    To which Parker replied, "@KristinDavis Me too you! Heard the news? X"

    The news, fans are hoping, is a green light for a third installment of Sex and the City, the movie. #SexandtheCity3 is certainly making the rounds on Twitter.

    "I think it might be [happening]," Hudson said of a new movie Thursday. "Somebody just came to me talking about that. So if it’s in the talks, it might happen. So look for it."

    But it seems the hints have ended – at least for now.

    "NEWS?!?! WHAT NEWS!!" one Twitter user asked Parker. Replied the actress: "That news zooming around. X sj."

    Oh, SJP, how you tease us!

    I know most don’t feel this way, but I have a problem with violent criminals (armed robbery, rape, etc) getting less time than a non violent crime. It makes no sense for a country that is essentially broke to throw people in jail at a cost of $30k plus per inmate per year. How about house arrest? how about working for the state/community service? And I don’t just feel this way for Teresa and Joe.

    • chismosa says:

      You’re not alone. – princess DJ feels that way. It was discussed the other day.
      ☺️ 😉

    • Exit4 says:

      A lot of people feel like this. It’s white collar, non violent crime and it happens a lot more then you’d think. You just don’t hear about it-because it’s not “sexy” so to speak and most people who do it, aren’t famous-ish. With these two, it was a pattern of dishonesty and that’s why they got the sentences. Most of the time-when faced with the reality of the punishment, people disclose it all. That’s why so many people that researched this judge, believed teresa would get a very light sentence. They didn’t anticipate the fact that teresa and juicy wouldn’t just give and be transparent. In reality, if she was forthcoming, she’d have probation and no jail.

      • MM in OC says:

        I still don’t understand why they would research their own assets. Why would the lawyers let them do this?? It doesn’t make any sense to me.

        • Veena (NMD) says:

          That part doesn’t make sense to me as well. With all the advisers they had, couldn’t someone have helped them fill out the paperwork. Unless they were purposefully trying to hide assets – which seems to be what the judge thought.

        • kit9 says:
