A few months ago, I would have never imagined that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga would peacefully come together for a family gathering. Times have really changed though!
Both the Gorgas and the Giudices celebrated the birthday of Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father, Giacinto Gorga, and Gino Gorga in one big happy family celebration. All of the adorable Giudice girls – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana – were present, hamming it up for the cameras, and the Gorga kids – Antonia, Gino, and Joey – were as cute and demure and darling as always.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey, desperation and delusion was in the air…I am pretty sure that scent is sprayed over Montville with a crop duster.
Siggy Flicker doesn’t seem to understand that her children are not squishy stuffed animals she can squeeze, squeal at, dress up, and toss around. On the other hand, Siggy’s children don’t understand that she is their mother and they should show her some respect! I dunno maybe it has something to do with Siggy decorating her daughter’s room in No.1 Sophie paraphernalia? Or acting like One Direction has showed up every time she sees Josh?
When Josh returns home from passing his driver’s test, the very first words out of mouth are “When are you gonna buy me a car?” Someone is driving straight into his future on the Teresa Giudice entitlement train!
Caroline weighs in on the Teresa and Kathy/Rosie situation: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So I’d like Teresa to open up her heart and just understand that people make mistakes and say bad things they don’t mean sometimes and I think it’s time she kind of grows up and accepts them back.”
The newbie shared that watching the episode was a hard reminder of losing her beloved Boo. “Losing Boo was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through. He really was my best friend. Even though he couldn’t talk to me, I know without a doubt that he “got” me. Through thick and thin, Boo was by my side and always brought me such comfort. He was my protector and according to my girlfriends, the only “man” I ever trusted. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss Boo terribly, but I know that he’s always with me in spirit.”
So far, the Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers have seen Siggy Flicker in response to other people’s story lines. She is doing what she can to help her BFF Dolores Catania become her own person after a breakup. The Sig is encouraging her kids to do their best and struggling not to be overbearing.
Aside from her legendary entrance with the post-face lift bandages around her head, Siggy has not really had a story line that’s just “hers.” Siggy’s focus on other people’s lives does make sense though since she is a “relationship expert” for a living. So I guess her effort to fix her loved ones’ problems is her thing. Nevertheless, I hope that Siggy does get a chance to shine on her own instead of solely serving as the peacemaker and group therapist. For now, Siggy is sounding off about Dolores’s new phase in her life and her children growing up.
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey, the saga of Teresa Giudice‘s never-wavering love for Joe continued. Unfortunately for Joe, he’s about to go away for a 41 month ‘staycation’ at the federal penitentiary and no home security cameras are gonna replace him once Teresa takes over.
While Joe binge drinks and verbally abuses his dog, daughters, and wife, Teresa gets ready for the official launch of Turning The Tables. A lot rests on this little book – a veritable ‘How Not To’ manual for aspiring Italian Housewives everywhere. A tale as aged as wine of a woman who vowed to stand by her man through orange is the new black, through bankruptcy and back, through thick and thickening girth, through humiliation and outbursts, through cheating and chutzpah…
