Dina Reacts to the Sentencing
Dina tells us she is gonna keep it brief this week…
Amber, you are so off with last week’s blog; you play the victim so well, I’m surprised you don’t carry around your own body chalk. You can blame me all you want, if that’s what you need, take it. I totally get it, no one expects you to write a nasty blog about your own husband. It’s all about standards girl…and it seems to me I have heels higher than yours. It all seems so unimportant right now anyway.
First, I love that they are talking directly to each other through their blogs. Makes me feel privy to their conversations. I am also thinking Amber might want to buy chalk in bulk. Costco probably has it in their clearance section right now.
I have no words for the outcome of the Giudice sentence. All I can say is if you’re doing anything other than sending this family some love right now, you need to really rethink that. No matter what your opinion, there are children and elderly parents involved. Please take a moment and just send them some positive energy and warm thoughts.
I took a moment. And then I will remind everyone; if you’re gonna dance, you’re gonna pay the piper!
I’m not really up to an after party on my website this week. I promise I’ll do some filming next week. Just in kind if a numb mood. Wishing we can all go back to the people we knew before this show started. No, I take that back, wishing we can just all be better versions of those happy-go-lucky girls you got to know in the beginning of Season 1.
Awe, I am so disappointed cause this was the one week where I might have watched the after party. OH, I guess I will just trim my puppy’s toe nails instead.
Namaste Bitches xo,
Back at ya Miss Dina!
Melissa: “We are Heartbroken”
Melissa apologizes for her tardiness in posting her blog. These days, since the twins don’t even bother, I don’t consider her late…
I’m not going to touch on the rumor, because it is so outlandish and ridiculous it doesn’t even deserve another mention. Let me just say again that I feel for TeRESa and Rino. It sucks when friends of friends come on and drop bombs. There is no excuse for it and it just gets old. But they were strong, came to dinner, and laughed at it. Kudos to them!
I agree. It was cool that they came to dinner. I think the consensus is that Rino maybe did make this remark in an offhanded way…possibly a very poor joke, but NO ONE believes that Rino slept with Teresa and Nicole’s mother. (Did he sleep with strippers? Probably, but let’s not forget that Rino and Teresa were divorced for a time.)
Obviously this has been a very tough week. We are heartbroken for our family and especially those four sweet girls. Pray for them. No matter how you feel, I hope everyone is wishing their family strength and faith.
I kinda like this better than Dina trying to guilt us for agreeing with the court’s decision. I will pray for those 4 sweet girls. Melissa signs off with “Lots of love” and no instructions to check out her latest jewelry line. She must really be down in the dumps.
Amber: “Dina is Jealous”
Again, I am gonna take some liberties with Amber’s blog. I am removing the stuff that she has repeated (although leaving in the stuff that makes me giggle).
Florida…well let me start by reminding you I was there to celebrate being 5 years cancer free!
Holy shit! Why didn’t she tell us earlier in the season? I would have sent her a card. (drink)
As I watched the last two episodes I caught many things I had missed that night. I probably missed them for several reasons. First, I was outside with Dina. Secondly, I had way too much to drink and not enough to eat (plus I had just flown in), and lastly, I was talking to Bobby in the bathroom. Hey, rookie mistake, with four kids we do not get out much on “adult nights,” so to one or two drinks at dinner max. Neither of us is accustomed to large quantities of vodka. We had started that day flying out early from New Jersey, we jumped on a plane had “airplane” food only…big mistake. Because when we landed our group was to go out to dinner. Unfortunately, our plane was late, the restaurant we picked was too packed, so we only had drinks and a few appetizers. Bigger mistake…leaving without food! I learned a few funny lesson, and in truth, I think we all did. I realized I can no longer drink like I did in my single days with Melissa, and I am not smart enough to do algebraic equations while intoxicated. But hey, my makeup looked good, so it wasn’t all bad.
Um, your make-up looked like crap. Have you never heard of waterproof mascara? Also, the hair. I get it. You told us you had cancer (drink) and probably lost all your hair at some point so maybe you are growing it out. But put it in a ponytail, it’s a big bushy mess. Oh, and eat crackers when you drink.
I asked myself, how did the whole crazy thing get started? If you go to bravotv.com, you will see we were all having a blast. Everyone was teasing everyone, Melissa was Dr. Ruth, Joe was saying he wanted to be hugged like a “bitch” after sex. Dina was saying Teressa was her date, and the group was cheering, “I want to see Amber and Jimmy make out.” All in good spirits. Jim and Joe were having a blast, Jim even rubbed and kissed Joe’s bald head! Even Bobby and I were back to teasing one another. We were really having a great time, but I think as with anything, too much alcohol is not always a good thing.
Best I could tell, Jim was busting on Bobby and complimenting the twins. I know Jim is ball buster and gives as good as he gets. He and Bobby had been friends for years and were having a great time, so when Bobby started with the faces and talk, Jim busted back in kind. Clearly, he struck a nerve, which set off a time bomb! Bobby got mad at Nicole. Teressa, feeling the need to defend her sister, got mad. Teressa started coming at Jim because of Bobby, not because of anything he said about Nicole or Teressa. Not sure why Teressa was defending Bobby…oh yeah, he was hiding in bathroom. In any case, Teressa and Jim emptied the largest bottle of vodka I have ever seen that night. So when the two clashed, it was not pretty. I wish Rino was there, because he may have brought reason to the party. But then again, who knows. The last time Jim spoke to Rino, Rino called Jim a jerk-off at Bobby’s house. But Jim and Joe worked it out with a shot of vodka, so I am sure Jim and Rino would have done the same.
Does she write her blog for blind people? Like for those that can’t watch the ridiculousness, she feels the need to give the exact blow-by-blow…or is it Jim writing this?
Nice thought, but back to reality. Teressa came at him on multiple occasions and the more Bobby hid, the meaner she got. She came at Jim on many occasions. When you see Jim pop up and call her uneducated, dumb bleep, she had already been attacking him with crude remarks. Bad move! If you notice, Jim is sitting on the couch when Teressa comes at him the last time, and no doubt was lying in wait. When Jim smirks, the sh– is going to hit the fan! He dropped the bomb. I of course was so hammered that after he dropped the bomb, I went into crying mode, which was normal for me the last few months as I was emotional wreck due to my health. Then I smoked a cigarette, which is a big, BIG, stupid mistake. My father died of pancreatic cancer when I was 19 inside of three months — that along with my diagnosis should have kept me more in check. Did I over react? YES! Too much alcohol, the highly stressful situation, no food, not enough sleep, and coming off the scare of my test results really lowered my better judgment.
Is she really trying to make this “health scare” into months of worry and panic? With her previous diagnosis, I am sure her results were rushed. I imagine she was told one week the “not so good news” and then the follow-up was a week later with the good news. I don’t think this was dragged out for months except in Bravo-time. She goes on to tell us how Jim was laughing and thought the whole thing was a “mama joke”. Not buying it. Jim was malicious and his intent was to hurt Teresa. She tells us how Jim is the breakfast guy in their house and how he cooks breakfast every weekend. Its like she is trying to improve his image in her blog (written by Jim) after we just watched him make a complete ass-clown out of himself.
I think they were really hurt, because while Jim let the cat out of the bag, they realized this rumor had been around for a while. The only time I spoke of it was to Jim and to confirm with Tre that I was not going to repeat it. Tre decided to tell Dina. I repeat, I think the way Dina told the twins caused animosity and it was shady. I truly think Dina’s comments about the rumor and my relation to it created unnecessary tension. Think about how she told them the night before we came down. Dina did not say it came from Gotti and that I had nothing to do with it, she placed it squarely on my shoulders.
I did think it was interesting the way Dina planted the seed. I personally think Dina should have said nothing. She should have zipped her ginormous lips shut and kept her secret to herself.
When I called and spoke to Dina to tell her that I was coming down because of my good test results, she should of relayed that to the group, not a doomsday message that set a negative tone. Worse, why didn’t Dina remind everyone we were celebrating my being five years cancer freeafter we had a scare? Certainly the group would have been happy for us instead of feeling tension when we came in. Also, the way Dina called me outside was shady. She loves to gossip, but pretends she does not gossip. In short, Dina caused tension due to her shady “rumor gossip” then didn’t tell anyone our good news. I am calling “ZEN PENALTY FOUL” since I feel Dina was protecting her friend and placing the fault squarely onto me. Dina feels needed when she causes bad sh–, and she enjoys it. I saw pictures of her smiling and laughing when the twins and I were fighting in Bobby’s basement. Dina likes to cause trouble behind the scenes and then plays the “healer” with her spiritual “love.” It’s called passive aggressive behavior. She attacks and then pretends to be victim as proof — look how she has treated my husband.
(drink) OK, I think she might be on to something. Dina is a shit stirrer who likes to run away once everything goes to shit. She likes to set everything in motion, but doesn’t want to see the bloodbath. Hmmm…
She never civilly spoke to my husband, yet feels comfortable enough to call him names? Unsolicited she called him a dick, vagina, douche, and told him to stick it up his a–. I remind you, Dina, without knowing my husband, approached him at the first responders party. Why? It was none of her business! This was an issue between Jim and Joe. I was just attacked and she thought that was a good time to ask about bowling? She has a pattern of starting trouble to justify her nasty comments. She consistently pokes her nose in gossip, like the Gotti rumor and the first responders party, then decides to attack my husband. I notice she does not call anyone else’s husband names when they act less than gentlemanly. If you have watched all year, there have been plenty of times Dina could have offered her opinion. Dina is the type to speak in vulgar terms about a man she never took five minutes to know and then acts offended when he speaks his mind. Dina thinks she is all high and mighty, but in reality she has a cold heart that has displaced her anger due to her own personal heartaches. It is clear she is jealous that my husband loves and adores me, protects me and fights for me, while her husband doesn’t give her the attention she needs. I actually feel bad that she got to this level of anger and resentment. I pray she finds her true love, so she can finally get off my husband’s jock strap.
Yes, Dina was name calling and talking nasty. Did we expect anything less? I hate hate hate saying this, but I just might agree with Amber’s assessment of Dina. Although, I don’t think Dina in any way, shape or form is jealous of Amber’s relationship with Jimmy.
Finally, on a sad note, my heart aches for Teresa, Joe, and her children. Jim and I’s thoughts and prayers are with Tre and Joe. I do not know Joe well, but I can see from the times I was at their home he is a good father and loving husband, and Teresa is an amazing mother. I really hope that you all just extend your well wishes and keep the nasty comments away.
I don’t think I am nasty. Snarky? Abso-fucking-lutely! Honest? Hell yes! She signs off with “Much Love to All” but certainly not me. I don’t think I am gonna lose any sleep.
Bobby’s Unacceptable Behavior
Nicole jumps right in…
These past two weeks the episodes in Florida were not easy to write about. As a matter of fact I’m going to make this extremely brief, because it was too upsetting to watch and comment on. One thing I will say, on a positive note, is we did actually all have a really good dinner together with the Marcheses earlier in the evening. Everyone actually seemed to finally be getting along, and quite frankly, it felt good. I must say I wish we all did not have as much to drink, because when things got heated in the house, the alcohol only escalated the situation and made things a thousand times worse.
Yeah, they must be really hard to write about cause you DIDN’T write about it at all last week. I forgive you. I kinda wish Bravo had shown the fun dinner and then the sharp turn into the dark side. I am gonna say this hear and don’t get mad about it, this was not Scary Island. As we watched Scary Island, we realized we were watching a person having a “break” with reality (like real reality, not TV reality) and that was truly scary. This was a booze induced conflict and we are kinda immune to these after years of watching RHNJ.
It started with Bobby getting totally upset with me when I was falling for Jim complimenting me. I totally get why Bobby was aggravated seeing my ego getting stroked by a man who has caused so much grief and aggravation in our lives, but I will make something very clear: There is no excuse on this planet for a man to talk to a woman and use the word “stupid.” It was totally unacceptable! Yes, of course Bobby apologized, but for all the woman reading this blog, I feel verbal abuse can be just as hurtful and damaging as physical abuse. I’m a firm believer that words are extremely powerful and can lift a person up or destroy a person’s spirit. That is why these past two episodes have been extremely difficult for me to write about. There were horrific words and verbal abuse coming from Jim that night, which made both me and my sister very upset. It actually broke my heart to see my sister cry; Teresa is the toughest, strongest woman I know. I’m proud to call her my sister.
I guess I missed the part where Bobby called her stupid. Hmmm, Bobby is smarter than I thought. I’m not gonna say Nicole is stupid. I will say (homage to Wendy Williams) that she is less than smart.
I did not appreciate Bobby leaving me downstairs, but most importantly, he should have opened the door for my sister when she came knocking. She was there without her husband, and he should have shown her respect by opening up the door.
Yep it was super crappy of Bobby to hide in the bathroom. Not one of the ladies hid in a bathroom (I would have, but I would have found some food first!).
I truly want to thank Dina for her good intentions and for keeping peace in the house. I admire Dina for her smarts, and I thank her for being a good friend.
Ahhh, we have reached the part of the blog where we kiss the ring of the Divine Miss D. Was she watching the same episode I was? Miss D. was at ground zero of the shit stirring and did nothing to help diffuse the situation.
The yachting day was fun but bittersweet. I wished my sister and Rino were there the whole time. I was truly shocked when Teresa and Rino came back to the house that night. That made me really happy and I’m glad that’s how we ended the vacation.
I am a little weirded out by these sisters’ attachment to each other. My husband is a twin and I have twins. Most twins do not behave like that. They are very individual and independent.
This has been a horrific week for the Giudice family, and my prayers are with them and their amazing children.
Agree. Nicole closes by wishing us a beautiful and blessed week. Surely she means me!
Teresa: I Don’t Blame Jim
I’m sure the last two episodes in Florida were very entertaining for some and very upsetting for others. There was a lot of fun that happened in Florida. Going to the Everglades with Nicole, Dina, and Melissa was a blast. It was a whole day affair — lunch and all — in the Everglades, wish you got to see more.
Yes, I am sure it was fun, but I guess fun does not bring ratings. Welcome to Bravo.
Amber and Jim’s arrival was a shock at first. It actually started off well, and we were having a really good night with them both. Unfortunately (and I will take responsibility as well) the night ended horrifically. Seeing that whole episode was very enlightening on many different levels. First and most importantly, it made me see how destructive alcohol can be. Watching it was even worse than being there! Seeing a bunch of adults out of control and spitting disgusting lies at each other was beyond distasteful. This is not an episode I am proud of due to the excessive drinking that took place. Nor was it the type of weekend I expected it to be. Rino made the right decision not to join us.
I am impressed that Teresa took some responsibility in this! Usually everyone deflects blame. I am sure the booze was the truth serum of the night. Rino was actually the genius of the group.
Obviously I wasn’t aware of the severity of the vile rumor (which is a lie) that Dina wanted to share with me. Dina was just looking out for me and what she wanted to do was absolutely necessary. I did appreciate Dina standing by my side and supporting me. When Jim threw that in my face, I felt so betrayed, not by Jim or Amber, but by Teresa. I considered us friends and I thought she would have had the decency to call me since Amber knew and she had told Dina. Teresa Giudice holds her parents in very high regard, and I would have expected the same respect for my parents, especially after Rino and I have stood by their side with everything they have been going through from the beginning. Although we have not known the Guidices for long, Rino and I have always been very loyal to them both. That night it was like a bomb exploded, and I felt so betrayed. Anyone who knows me knows I’m a loyal friend, and I was raised to have the utmost respect for MOTHERS and CHILDREN! I realize now that Dina was trying to protect me from the start.
Um, I don’t think Dina was “looking out for you”. She was planting a seed. Interesting that she has moved the blame on to Teresa. I do think Teresa could have spoke up to Ms. Gotti and said, “Hey Blondie, Teresa is my friend. I have met Rino and know he is a jokester. I can’t believe for a minute that this is true.” But, we all know Teresa is NEVER gonna go against someone like Ms. Gotti! I agree that MOTHERS and CHILDREN are off limits.
People have asked, “Why did I get so upset?” As strong as I am and as much experience as I have had with people, I have never felt such cruelty and venom like what was directed towards me and my family. I want to be clear, I’m not blaming Jim for this. He was the drunken messenger and threw it out there. This is what Dina was trying to protect me from. The origin of this untruthful rumor is V.G. and Teresa Giudice for not shutting it down immediately, like I would have done if anyone was discussing somebody’s mother. It was especially shocking since it was directed at me, who has been loyal to her and Joe. This was simply a malicious attempt to hurt my family.
Still not sure how she is blaming Tre. I think the blame lies squarely on the shoulders of V.G.
For the people who knew off the bat that this was a lie, you are obviously the intelligent group of fans and kudos to you. I want to say thank you again. But for the ones who have even questioned whether it’s true, shame on you; your ridiculous opinions will never have any value to me. I do want to send lots of love, light, and blessings to Dina for being the women she is.
I didn’t believe this for one minute! Teresa and Nicole have a very good relationship with their mother and father. If rumor was truth there is NO way in hell that would be possible.
Also as I end this blog, my heart goes out to the Giudice children and my prayers are with them all.
She shows she has class. Even after she threw some shade at Tre for not protecting her family, she offers prayers and support to them. Not sure I could rise above. She sends us on our merry with much love, hugs and kisses. Back at ya babe!
Real Housewives Of New Jersey Tonight!
“Sorry, Not Sorry”
Back from their explosive trip to Florida, Teresa and Rino plan a tasting party to launch their new restaurant, but several names are conspicuously absent from the guest list — Teresa Giudice and Amber. With her Ladybug event only weeks away, Dina takes it upon herself to get Teresa to apologize to the twins for spreading the rumor, but getting Teresa to apologize could be a fool’s errand. Meanwhile, Melissa questions Amber about her home life with Jim, and Nicole meets Jacqueline for the first time.
