All feels right in the world now that Real Housewives of New Jersey is back on TV. The queen (Teresa Giudice) is back and the rest of the cast is pretty on point as well. The nice thing about New Jersey is that these ladies actually have history and ties outside of being cast on the same reality TV show. It is the only show in the franchise where the casting doesn’t seem forced.
With that said, the beef and friendships really run deep in this group. So I really live for it when the ladies speak out about the show and each other. Jacqueline Laurita and the new girls Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker all came together for an interview – and yes they talked about Teresa, obviously.
Of course, Peter is going to appear on future episodes of RHOA– my guess is that he is dying to speak his peace (and promote his businesses). For all of us nosy people, we don’t have to wait for the show to air to get some inside scoop since Peter opened up about the demise of his marriage to Wendy Williams.
It is really killing me not to make some sort of pun about the cast of Little Women: LA having big drama, but I just gotta jump into the good stuff. Everyone who watches the show knows that Terra Jole and Christy McGinity Gibel cannot stand each other.
Shit really hit the fan when they got into a bar fight (while wearing cowboy hats) and Christy ended up filing for a police report. That seemed to be a point of no return because the women are STILL battling it out over the incident.
If you thought this season of Shahs of Sunset was all about divorce drama and questioning someone’s health status, you are in the same cynical boat I’m in. But Shahs isn’t all doom and gloom and this episode (sort of) proves it with the perfect formula to rally bored reality show fans everywhere: an overly staged marriage proposal! OK, I still have to be mostly cynical when watching; it’s just the nature of the beast.
We start at Mercedes “MJ” Javid’s condo, where she is busy tidying up her clothing racks so she can have a yard sale. Shervin Roohparvar comes to watch, presumably because he has nothing better to do all day and hasn’t fulfilled his camera time for the week. MJ explains that she needs to make more room for boyfriend, Tommy Feight, who I thought was already moved in anyway? She goes through the hangers and takes us for a long walk down sad memory lane and describes how her clothes remind her of times in her life. Like the time she wore this dress, Vida was berating her at a table full of people and making her cry. Yeah, probably time to get rid of that one.
Teresa is out of prison, and from this point forward everything must go in a new direction. Say “new direction” fast and it sounds like “nude erection,” which encompassed about 3/4 of the things Teresa learned from “camp.” The other thing was not to be slutty with your your John Hancock. So, yeah, about those leopards and their spots…
First, Michael weighs in on current Real Housewives story lines. AboutTeresa Giudice‘s emotional return, he says, “Great TV. Her hair was fantastic – best hair line in the business.” As for Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s newbies, Siggy Flicker and Dolores Catania, he loves them both. About a post-face lift Siggy showing up in bandages, Michael says, “This woman has balls.” He adds that Dolores is fantastic and has a beautiful family.
