“Do you not think I have better things to do with my time than to drive by the streets of Franklin Lakes?” were the words of Danielle Staub, who was shown during the season premiere driving by the streets of Franklin Lakes to stalk spy on her castmates.
The above statement pretty much summed up part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion. It was mostly the others accusing and confronting Danielle, who’s MO coming into the reunion taping seemed to be Deny, Lie, Deny, Lie, Deny and more Deny. And despite Andy Cohen’s claim that the part 2 of the reunion would be more shocking and more dramatic than the first part, it was all but obvious last night that the best had come and gone last week.
The reunion starts out with Danielle being confronted about the events that took place during the Brownstone charity fundraiser. Immediately, we see Danielle denying things she said, you know, things that we all saw her say on national television.
Danielle’s ex-con buddy, Danny‘s use of a gay slur, is then brought up. Danielle immediately goes on the defensive and keeps saying she will not take responsibility for Danny’s comment. Perhaps I missed something, but no one was asking Danielle to take responsibility for his comment, they were simply asking her why she was never shown condemning Danny’s use of the word, or scolding him about it, considering she is a gay advocate and all. And by gay advocate, I wonder if that means exploiting a faux lesbian relationship for self promotion?

So what can we expect? Well, Kim G. makes her return as she comes back for a special appearance to call Danielle out on using her and being a bad friend.
Other serious allegations are brought up in the reunion, which include the story behind Danielle and Ashley’s texting war. Last week Teresa unleashed her anger on Danielle and this week the rest of the ladies are ready to join in. Will Danielle make it through the reunion shoot or will she flee the scene again? Find out tonight at 9/8c.
In other news, last week’s reunion episode brought in a Bravo housewives best at 3.9 million viewers, making it the most watched housewives episode in the history of the Bravo network.
Back to tonight’s episode,Andy Cohen did a new interview with E! online during which he assured us the part 2 of the reunion would shock us even more than the first (Is this even possible?).
“What I’ll tell you is that Jacqueline has something of an epiphany somewhere through the taping and her epiphany is really going to surprise people,” said Andy to E!. “Two things happen that I never would expect to happen in million years. Literally, the shots of me, my mouth is on the floor.”
Interesting words from Andy. Could Jacqueline be the housewife that will reportedly leave the show forever? Guess we’ll find out tonight!
A preview clip of tonight’s episode is below.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND PART 2 OF THE REUNION?
The super-sized Real Housewives of New Jersey part 1 reunion episode aired last night. The good news? With the exception of some of our brain cells, the show ended with no casualties.
For some odd reason, I assumed the highly promoted “fight scene” between Teresa, Danielle and innocent bystander Andy, would occur in part 2 of the reunion set to air next week, but thanks to the ape-like animal instincts ofTeresa Giudice, all the drama went down within the first 20 minutes of the show!
The reunion started out with host Andy Cohen greeting each of the ladies, while issuing them phony compliments, buttering them up for the madness that is about to ensue. Andy decides to ask the ladies about that other little Jersey show aka the Jersey Shore, and Teresa, who likes to request an occasional spanking on her bottom in public, immediately lets us know she does not approve. When asked why, Teresa reveals one of the female cast members jumped into bed with a guy on the show after barely knowing him.
All was going well until Teresa decided to take a dig at Danielle 2 minutes into the show. “I think Danielle could relate to them, right Danielle? Because after a week you met Steve, you slept with him in my Shore house, in front of your kids. That was okay, right, right?” Danielle calmly refers to Teresa as insane, and Teresa retorts by calling Danielle a pig. Jacqueline chimes in, stating that Danielle’s kids heard her having sex with her ex Steve on that faithful day. More on Danielle’s kids later, as we will discover their mother’s actions is taking a toll on them.
Andy decides to ask the ladies how their kids are dealing with the notoriety of the show. Danielle immediately lets us know her kids are doing amazingly well, you know, despite the fact that their prostitution whore of a mother is on national television acting loony, and released a sex tape just a few months ago.
Danielle is accused of not congratulating Jacqueline when she had her baby boy. So she congratulates Jacqueline, who fake accepts the congrats. Dina Manzo‘s name comes up, and the big topic of last year’s reunion show is brought up, which was the accusation by the other ladies that Danielle did something very awful to Dina. Dina has since come out this year, stating in a national magazine that Danielle offered unsolicited help to her ex-husband to try to have her daughter taken away from her. But what we didn’t know is that following the publication of Dina’s interview with Life&Style magazine, Danielle had her lawyers issue a gag order to Dina, forbidding her from discussing Danielle’s role in whole issue.
“We can’t talk about it. Can’t talk about it! End, done, next,” proclaimsCaroline Manzo. Danielle doesn’t yield to Caroline’s command and continues to discuss the issue. “Do not speak of my sister! Did you hear what I said? Do not speak of my sister, she is not here!” screams Caroline.
And I have nothing against Caroline, but at this point I’m trying to figure out who died and made her authority over what can and cannot be discussed. Yes, I understand she wants to defend her sister, but that sister was a part of the show this season, and because she chose not to attend the reunion doesn’t make her exempt from discussion. Caroline came off as a major bully in this scene.
Some more words are exchanged amongst the ladies, and Teresa brings up the fact that Danielle failed to acknowledge Jacqueline’s son. “Do you acknowledge your nephew?” are the words uttered by Danielle, obviously meant to get a reaction out of Teresa. “Yes of course I did,” calmly replied Teresa before giving us a delayed reaction by going into an extreme rage! “Do not bring up my family!” screamed out a very angry Teresa. “You bitch, you f*cking bitch,you piece of sh*t, you motherf*cker,” were the words of Teresa, who I found out last night is actually college educated with a marketing degree.
Andy Cohen even got a powerful shove from the angry Teresa as he tried to hold her back from Danielle, who calmly walked off the stage. Okay, yes Danielle tried to push Teresa’s buttons but Teresa’s reaction was over the top, uncalled for, and pretty much a very unnecessary sequel to last season’s table flipping. Let’s assume Danielle’s accusation is untrue, why react like a lunatic? By now, we all realize what a trouble maker and sh*t stirrer Danielle is, why give her that reaction? It seems to me that Teresa’s over the top reaction as more to do with the other issues going on in her life at the moment.
We are back from commercial break and we see Caroline, who looks a bit mortified, attempting to calm down an enraged Teresa backstage. Danielle wonders out-loud why her life and past is fair game, but she’s not allowed to bring up their dirt, which is a sorta valid point. “It’s true, she didn’t even acknowledge her nephew,” says Danielle to her new posse.
Back on stage, Andy Cohen grows some balls, albeit very little balls according to the good folks at AbsurdtoSublime, when he tells Teresa she must keep her animal rage in check! Danielle is backstage relishing in her role as a victim, while being consoled by her ever changing posse. With a hug from her rumored lesbian superstar superhero girlfriend Lori Michaels, Danielle is ready to face her foes once again.
The Jersey ladies are gathered together for the first time in over a year, with the exception of Dina Manzo, who exited the show mid-season because of Danielle Staub. Despite Dina’s absence, she is still the topic of conversation among the housewives and Teresa has no problem putting all of the blame on Danielle.
A video preview is below that shows the aftermath of a fight between Danielle and Teresa. It seems Danielle brings up Teresa’s family, and she decides to take out her bankruptcy humiliation frustration on her. The super-sized 1 hour and 15 minutes reunion episode airs tonight on Bravo at 10/9c.
You have all likely seen the previews by now which shows Teresa Giudice shoving host Andy Cohen as he tries to hold her back. Well, Teresa is now speaking out about her actions, trying to explain why she want ape nuts on Andy.
“I didn’t mean to shove Andy,” Teresa tells UsWeekly. “I love Andy.” On why she shoved him, she said: “When I’m attacked, I attack back. I don’t like to be held back or touched…Listen, I know how to control myself. Just don’t hold me back!”
Caroline Manzo gives her take on the reunion show as well, “There are no words,” she said. “Just no words. I could not compose a rational thought in my head for two days [after the taping]. It took me two days to regroup.”
There is also a rumor that has been going around for the past couple of weeks stating that Teresa’s husbandJoe Giudice has been having an affair with a Jersey woman named Tara G. We received an email about this a while back, with someone telling us that everyone in the Giudices hometown is aware of this woman and the affair, including Teresa.
We didn’t publish this as there was no proof attached to the email. So, if there’s anyone out there with proof, photos, last names, facebook pages etc, Please feel free to email us the details using our site contact page or at Realitytea@yahoo.com.

TELL US- WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW & THE REUNION SHOW PART 1?
As the second season of theReal Housewives of New Jersey dwindles to an end, thought you all might be interested in some amazing ‘before’ shots of the NJ ladies before they became famous, or infamous rather for one or two of them.
It all went down a week after the reunion show taping. Bravo reportedly sent Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline letters asking them to return for a third season. The insider adds that Danielle did not receive a letter and, was not even aware that her co-stars had.
A source also adds that Danielle was unaware she was off the show until she read it online on Monday. As for Danielle’s cryptic non-denial message on Monday, the source says she’s not that upset because she might be getting her own solo reality show. She is said to be “working with production companies who are really interested and have talked to Bravo.”
And as for the gruesome twosome aka the two Kims, they weren’t asked back as well. The source stays this season was a bit of an audition for Kim Granatell and Kim DePaola, adding that they might be asked to make guest appearances next season.
The NYDailyNews doesn’t touch on whether or not Dina Manzo was asked back. Dina left during this season because she no longer wanted to film with Danielle. Dina however posted an interesting tweet this week regarding the Danielle story – “yes, I’ve heard the news, don’t know if it’s true. Rumor has it I may not be invited if I don’t put my daughter back on air. Can u believe?”
Perhaps someone should inform Dina the show is about the women and their families. Without a husband or daughter on the show, she really isn’t bringing much to the table.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST NEWS? DO YOU WANT KIM G ON THE SHOW? DO YOU WANT DINA BACK?
We’ll start off with Danielle Staub, who hosted a party for her 48th birthday last night at NYC’s Scores strip club. The former stripper/escort however took some time away from the pole her party to talk to the press, during which she told NBC Newyork she’s in the works of creating her own spin-off reality show.
“It will definitely be a lot more of her (gal pal Lori Michaels) and I and definitely my kids,” Danielle told the site. “There will be a lot of questions that will be answered.”
And when asked about the status of her relationship with faux girlfriend Lori, “We’re exclusively committable,” answered Danielle while holding Lori’s hand.
The HollywoodLife is also reporting today that Danielle’s former BFF, three-faced Kim Granatell, tried to crash Danielle’s strip club party last night.
According to the site, right as Danielle was about to walk into her party, Kim G., pictured above in front of Daniele’s party last night, arrived with an entire entourage in tow even though she wasn’t invited. Danielle was reportedly blindsided and refused to walk in until Kim G. was escorted off the premises. “It took a little while but Kim finally got into her black Bentley and sped off,” says the site.
Next up is Dina Manzo, who bowed out of the Bravo hit show mid season. According to the Crushable site via Life&Style magazine, Dina did not attend the recent taping of the reunion show. Dina’s reason for being a no show? She wants absolutely nothing to do with Danielle.
Teresa Giudice also talked to the mag about the reunion taping. “The reunion was crazy, exhausting and unbelievable,” Teresa tells Life & Style.Andy Cohen also chimes in saying, “It was nuts, absolutely nuts!”
Life & Style reports that taping lasted nearly 12 emotionally-draining hours.
According to a Bravo press release, the reunion will be in two parts airing August 30 and September 6. The show’s finale will air August 23.
And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.
“They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”
Teresa also shares her plan of writing another book with the magazine, while revealing she hasn’t lost all the weight she gained during her last pregnancy. “I haven’t lost it all yet!” she says. “I still have about 10 pounds to go.
We are on episode 14 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The bad news? It was a pretty non eventful episode that only featured the highly entertaining nuttyness known as Danielle Staub for a few minutes. The good news? there’s only two more episodes left. Just two more episodes and the second season will be finally over. That is until the reunion comes around of course.
A while back, our genius reader gigi1234 had a highlarious view on what the reunion should would be like -
Dirty D [Danielle] – “Kim who, Teresa who, Manzo who?” Dina – “I’m in such a spiritual place now I simply choose to not comment” sitting w/cat oil stains on her Dolce dress. Jacqueline – “Yea I know Ashley has no life, no interest & is disrespectful BUT” Chewbaca [Teresa] – “I can’t comment on the foreclures since it really only has to do w/my husbands business. You know Joe is an entremanure & aint he hot” Caroline - will be on couch not saying a word nursing Albie”
Let’s all hope the NJ ladies can give us a great reunion show a la the Real Housewives of NYC, but please Bravo let’s not make it 3 hours. I simply don’t think I want to sit through 3 hours of everyone against Danielle.
Guess it’s time to get into last night’s episode. It starts off the Jacqueline and her hubby Chris deciding to pay the Giudices a visit at their luxurious mansion. Jacqueline mentions Joe received a DUI and is puzzled because “Joe was not drinking and was not drunk,” during their night out. Really Jacqueline? Not even one drink by Joe? Not sure I’m buying this.
Danielle and her feathered head ex-con buddy Danny are shown eating out and of course, the topic of Joe’s DUI is brought up. Before Danielle can fully dissect the issue, we are forced to listen to Joe’s lies explanation of his version of events. “I was tired, it wasn’t from drinking at all,” claims Joe.
It’s now back to Danielle and the former prostitution whore actually makes good sense when she wonders out-loud why Joe simply couldn’t call a cab, being that he could afford to. Wondering if he could actually afford to, you know following the bankruptcy and over-spending wife. Joe then tries to explain away his .11 alcohol level, saying he started downing shots once at his friend’s house, following the accident. According to the DailyRecord.com, this is a defense is known as a ”glove box defense,” or claim of drinking after an accident so a blood test reading would be invalid.
Unfortunately for Joe, the cops didn’t buy his glove box defense, with the cops stating that the witness Joe called to support his claim of drinking only after the crash ”completely lacked credibility” and ”was out and out lying.” Ouch.
It’s now back to Danielle, who believes Joe’s DUI is a result of karma. “I’m just going to continue living in the love and light that they make fun of, while their darkness rains upon them, says Danielle, who’s sex tape would be ultimately released just months after uttering these words.
And for the fans of the show who say Bravo shouldn’t have Danielle and her supporting cast on the show, well you know what they say – be careful what you wish for, as the next 55 minutes of the show will be Danielle free.
Teresa, Caroline and Jacqueline meet up and Teresa makes an interesting comment. “Since the accident, it has been a stressful time for us, cause it’s a small town, everybody talks,” states Teresa, who’s bankruptcy filing would be unveiled just months after uttering these words. If their small town was abuzz about Joe’s DUI, one can only imagine all the yapping that took place regarding their $11 mil debt.
And then randomly out of the blue, the three ladies decide that Joe’s arrest is too stressful for them to handle or something, as the talk of taking a trip to Italy is randomly brought up. This whole scene seems very staged, as Bravo PAYS for these trips taken by the housewives, including the infamous St. John trip for the NYC Housewives, and the Florida trip taken by the OC Housewives. The Atlanta housewives also took a trip for their upcoming third season. So basically, this scene is phony and the trip idea was Bravo’s.
Caroline heads over to the Brownstone to inform her bobby about the trip, and maybe it’s just me, but Al seems more and more disinterested in Caroline as the days go by. And in what seems like perfect foreshadowing, Al states he doesn’t want a trip with Teresa’s kids 18 kids running around. Jacqueline wants to bring her parents to be babysitters, while Teresa feels it would be a good idea to bring her parents “you know since that’s where they were born.” All the husbands are on board, and Italy is about to get some NJ trash coming their way! And by NJ trash, I mean the Jersey Shore cast Teresa Giudice.
