Dina left the show because she felt it became too negative. Now with the network looking to revamp and get away from all the fighting and animosity, Dina is claiming she's been offered a spot on the show! “I have been offered, I can say that. I'm considering it,” Dina revealed to In Touch Weekly.
In her Bravo blog this week, Caroline dishes on just how over she is of the bitter battle of the sister-in-laws and once again (enough already!) clarifies her comments about a cheating Al. I know she annoys the sanity out of most folks, but you have to admit, she's usually right. I personally don't think Caroline perceives herself as the matriarch or the all-knowing, I just think she's the only woman on RHONJ with one iota of common sense.
Teresa hopped on her blog this week to talk family healing (I want to gouge my eyes out every time I see that phrase this season) and to call out co-stars Caroline Manzo and Kathy Wakile on things they said. She also dishes on her new dessert and coffee line and reiterates that things are great with her family right now.
First, Teresa professes her love for the least worst reunion of all time. And also declares crazy table flipper Teresa as a thing of the past. "Of all the Reunions I've ever been to, this one was the best. I know that's like saying something is the best worst, because the Reunions are never fun. They are brutal, long, and everyone ends up frazzled. But compared to other years, I guess what I'm most proud of is how I didn't let other people upset me. That old table-flipping Teresa is long gone. I've learned a lot by watching myself on television, and I hope I've changed for the better. We're all works in progress and we'll all keep growing."
Last night was the first part of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. Right off the bat the vibe was immediately much different than last years – which was awesome. Teresa Giudice seemed relaxed-ish and confident. Jacqueline Laurita had great hair. And Caroline Manzo's head wasn't smoking. So yay for progress. Everyone was very orange though, but you know it could've been my TV.
Andy Cohen jumps right in. It's clear that some people really either took to heart the therapy and forgiveness, while others cannot and will not let go. Maybe some people really do value their friendships over a show, or maybe it's because they're leaving they want to go out on a good note – whatever.
Caroline has definitely decided that since she is officially done with this show, it's time to get. honest. And getting honest means calling Melissa Gorgaout! Caroline points out that Melissa and Teresa are eerily similar in many ways. While Teresa blinks profusely and thinks carefully about what the word "similar" means, Melissa gets combative and denies, denies, denies! "We're nothing alike. If we were alike, we'd be able to get along," she insists. Melissa insists that at their core she and Teresa are different people. Good thing she cleared that up cause on the surface they're both materialistic, self-absorbed, attention whores! And at their core, they're both rotten!
From the look of the previews, we'll be getting some rehashes of the cheating rumors, the Posche drama (what's allowed legally anyway!), refreshers on the therapy retreats, and even touching a bit on the Joe & Teresafraud charges.
We initially thought the reunion was going to be another three part extravaganza like last year, but it's actually only two this time around – with a twist. The reunion shows will run 90 minutes each instead of one hour.
Caroline has made no secret that she wishes Al were more present in their marriage and would consider retiring. But now sources tell Perez Hilton that their marriage is majorly on the rocks and Caroline is forcing Al to spend time with her! They do seem really disconnected, I mean he seems like he never wants to be around. Sad.
After suffering through the last Posche Fashion Fiasco she'll ever have to endure, Caroline reflects on the tumultuous season 5 ups and downs and is happy with how things ended. Here's hoping she's not singing a different tune after the reunion – which is allegedly very cathartic!
"The fight at Moxie was awful and pretty ugly to witness," Caroline begins in her Bravo blog. "I will never understand the motivation behind the attack on Melissa [Gorga], Joe, Chris, andJacqueline [Laurita]. Complete strangers were willing to take marching orders to hurt people they've never, ever met before. Somebody tell me why, I don't get it. That's all the attention this mess gets, not worth my time. Shame on all of you."
Last night was the much awaited season finale of Real Housewives of New Jersey. And I mean much awaited because we are all desperate to escape the meandering Gorgadice feud storyline which has dominated the show for three seasons.
With majorly dropping ratings this season, we're hoping next season is a season of change. But until then, our favorite existing Jersey stars weigh in on last night's episode.
Teresa Giudice did not comment – clearly her appearance on WWHLsaid enough. As for Melissa Gorga she used the opportunity to promote her various endeavors – currently a controversial "marriage bible" – and retweeted that this season had the "perfect ending". OooooKaaaay.
