Last night the Christmas spirt came to Real Housewives Of New Jersey, and also a New Year brought a new attitude, and Teresa Giudice was giving out her forgiveness wrapped in tissue-filled boxes and tied with a prison-issued bow. Too bad that forgiveness felt as natural as an ingrown toenail.
Of course, in the land that Teresa built on fraud and false promises, it is not Jesus’ birthday we’re celebrating, but the day she came back to life by being released from prison. Jacqueline Laurita, who sooooo does not care about Teresa AT ALL, is watching the news coverage with tears in her eyes. Jacqueline apparently needed Dolores Catania and a bouquet of flowers to deal with these emotions. Jacqueline’s tears turned sour at the paparazzi snaps of Teresa being rewarded for surviving prison with a BRAND NEW LEXUS (said in Bob Barker’s voice)! Is there a bumper sticker that says, “Mommy went to prison and all we got was this luxury SUV.”
Has she had any work done to her face or body? “No, but I want to soon.”
Andy mentions that Jacqueline didn’t seem receptive to Teresa’s New Year’s Eve call. “At that time my guard was up. I hadn’t heard from her in so long and then the note. But it was when she said “oh do you always answer the phone on speaker?” She knows when you’re on a reality show you always put your phone on speaker. So I thought she was trying to throw me under the bus and that turned me off immediately and why my walls went up.”
Kathy shared that they’re all moved into the new house and that it was a lot of fun building it (at least for her) and she designed the entire thing. She made the house open like a California layout – outside coming in, no cabinets in the kitchen. She said that the house isn’t as big as we think, it just looks that way because her bedroom is on the first floor.
In a new interview with New York Live, Teresa reveals why she and Melissa left their interview with Access Hollywood before it was over. And why she plans to do the same thing in the future if the media doesn’t honor her wishes.
Phewww! I mean, 41 months, for Joe alone, is a long time, and I know y’all have been losing sleep over wondering if these two lovebirds will weather the storm. Rest assured, Siggy wants us to know that couples who break the law together stay together. Oh wait, that’s what I said. She, the expert, said that Teresa is too busy with her daughters’ endless activities (paid for by their forever endless funds) to miss Joe too much. Also, their love is sooo strong, nothing could ever tear them apart. <insert puking emoticon here>
Kathy Wakile and husband Rich were in the SiriusXM building this week after doing another interview and Bethenny Frankel invited them in for a segment on her show, B Real With Bethenny. They dished on the bad blood with Teresa Giudice, shared why they choose to stay on Real Housewives of New Jersey and what they think about the realness of Teresa and Melissa Gorga’s sudden bonding.
Bethenny asks if Kathy and Rich continue to do the show for the money or for their business. “It’s a little bit of both,” Kathy says. “A lot of times when we film with our family, our immediate family, it’s fun. It’s being you, there’s no tension.” She continues, “It is a good platform, I’m not going lie. And the money’s not bad either.”
Aside from the nonsense story lines with Jacqueline Laurita and the two new Housewives that none of us know yet, the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 7 premiere episode was really emotional. At this point I just wish that the show was about Melissa Gorga, Teresa Giudiceand their families. I guess that it basically is, but officially dropping the dead weight (Jacqueline) would make for a great show.
But anyway, the Gorga/Giudice portion of RHONJwas on point and I was all sorts of emotional when I was watching it. Melissa and her husband Joe Gorga were so excited and nervous for Teresa to come home and I really felt the tension when I was watching-I also have no life, but anyway)… Melissa shared her thoughts on the first episode of Season 7.
I am semi-embarrassed to admit that I got pretty emotional when I watched the Real Housewives of New JerseySeason 7 premiere episode. I am way too invested in these people’s lives and Teresa Giudice’s homecoming really got me choked up. Yes, I was super annoyed that Bravo waited until the end of the episode before giving me what I really wanted to see, but it was definitely worth the suspense. The Queen is back and I am so excited about it.
Still, I felt awkward watching the nervous anticipation from Melissa Gorga and Joe Gorga before Teresa’s return since I now know that they are all on really good terms and that Melissa and Teresa are now besties. And if I feel kind of conflicted watching the family tension, then I can’t imagine how Teresa herself feels.
