Remember that Lindsay Lohan movie "Freaky Friday" where the mom became the kid and the kid suddenly morphed into the mom role after they were both struck by lightening or something? Yeah – that was last night's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey!
As the adults continued to behave childishly and bicker pettily over everything imaginable, the kids were able to give them a little lesson in communication, letting bygones be bygones, and focusing on the positive!
Before we get to all that, things begin with the cast recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. While none of them lost their primary homes, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga both had their shore homes damaged. "My house… what happened??" they both wail – as a flood of last summer's empty bronzing bottles and sequined bikinis wash over their feet. 'All my marble deck furniture like suuuunk! Waaaah… and what about my rhinestone encrusted jet ski Joeeew' Ok – so the editors cut that out, but you KNOW that's what really happened!
While casting gossip is swirling, Carlton Gebbia (pictured above with Lisa Vanderpump and Brandi Glanville) seems to be the rumored newbie frontrunner. Hey, apparently she's already part of the group though, right? Well, now a new name has been added into the hat.
A slew of sort-of-boring celebrities turned out for the garden party soiree held in Beverly Hills. The only interesting guest on Kim's list was Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes. The rest included Kelly Osbourne, Maria Menounos, and her trainer Tracy Anderson.
Of course her sisters Kourtney and Khloe were there, along with Lamar Odom. Kanye West did show up, but arrived with his face and head completely covered with a hoodie as he made his way inside.
The Braxton family has always been quiet and camera shy, so it's shocking when the stars (and siblings) of Braxton Family Values are in the media. Seriously, why isn't there a sarcasm font?
Tamar Braxton is enjoying her pregnancy with husband Vince Herbert while battling pesky plastic surgery rumors, while her sister Trina is filing for divorce after her messy marriage played out on the show…infidelity admissions and all.
Kim says that it's exactly as Kanye had hoped. "I’m so excited we’re having a girl. Who doesn’t want a girl? I think they are the best. I know that’s really what Kanye has always wanted — he wanted a little girl.”
What do you think about Kim making the announcement on the show? Did it get you to tune in tonight?
First of all, yes we heard the rumors that Teresa Giudice's alleged cooking-based spinoff is happening and in the casting phases, buuuuut… we're still investigating that!
Regarding a so-called Madame Juicy spinoff, Andy Cohen was questioned and played coy.
“Maybe, you never know,” Andyhinted to Wetpaint. “We don’t like to spin everybody off, we like to go slowly.”
In other words; brace yourselves because you know – and I know – it's coming. Teresa will be spun-off! Rumor has it, Teresa doesn't want a spinoff based on her personal life, but Bravo is hoping to capture the Joe Giudice's trial and how that will potentially affect Teresa's family and life.
In other news concerning the Real Housewives of New Jersey star: tonight is the season premiere! Teresa will not only be torturing or gracing us with her presence (depending on how you look at it) on tonight's epic premiere, she'll also be appearing on WWHL. Pace yourself with the Fabellinis, kids!
