Teresa shared in her episode blog this week that not only is she sorry about that slip directed toward Amber Marchese’s child, she’s also not sorry for finding Jim Marchese nauseating. Plus, she explains why we didn’t get a look at all of the gifts her family exchanged at Christmas. Her reason? She didn’t want to be tacky and a show off. Is she new here? Yes, yes she is!
Teresa starts off, “I must apologize for saying ‘where did that f—- kid put my shawl?’ My language was unacceptable and I did not at any time purposely mean to address any insult towards that child. Every child is precious in my eyes, and I sincerely apologize to the Marchese family.”
Teresa shares, “As for Jim, I found it nauseating to hear his typical obnoxious and toady remark during the sneak peek at next week’s episode about how he cannot be in the same room as Joe Giudice since Joe has indictments against him. Who is Jim to look down and judge others when the Giudices are going through such a horrific time?” In Jim’s defense, this “horrific time” the Giudices are going through IS self-inflicted.
She laughs at Bobby’s shoe novelty gift for her sister Nicole. “OK, as for Nicole, Mom, and Bobby… even as I am writing this I am hysterically laughing! I never thought that the shoe episode would start so much chatter. Watching this with Bobby and the kids was really funny. Thank you all for having my sister’s back, but I can assure you, Bobby’s real Christmas gift to Nicole was absolutely beautiful.” Teresa adds, “I am hoping that Bobby is her prince and that the shoe does fit, because I do like him very much and would love Bobby to be part of this family.”
On the one hand I respect Teresa for not wanting to flaunt their excess, but on the other hand, this is the Real Housewives! It’s supposed to be about women living these fabulously lush lives. Although that end of it has gotten a little depressing since most wind up in foreclosure and/or bankruptcy and a multitude of other broke-as-a-joke financial debacles.
TELL US – DO YOU APPRECIATE TERESA NOT SHOWING OFF THEIR CHRISTMAS GIFTS? IS JIM MARCHESE’S LACK OF COMPASSION FOR JUICY ANNOYING?
