First, Danielle praises Teresa Giudice’s connection with her family, especially with her dad in the wake of his mourning. “It’s sweet seeing the connection you and your dad have. You are so good with him, Teresa. Honestly, it’s heartbreaking to hear his pain. Although you are heartbroken as well, you remain so empathetic to your dad while going through your own emotions. I personally think you’re doing an amazing job!”
I still can’t help thinking this season’s cast has stepped it up a notch. Maybe it’s been Siggy losing her effing mind (which, though bizarre and troubling, has been strangely entertaining!), or perhaps it’s the reintroduction of wild card Danielle Staub, who Dolores Catania sees as a snake in the grass. In any case, we’re lucky that cameras finally stepped back from the heaviness of Teresa Giuidice’s family drama this week, instead entrapping gathering the women together for a forced getaway – always a solid gold Housewives move. Even though the trip is to Siggy’s retreat, at least Margaret Josephs is there to provide comic relief! Plus, Melissa Gorga brought three Hail Mary’s in her pocket just in case Satan caused confusion.
Right off the bat she was talking about “pot puss,” getting with her husband Joe Benignowhile she was married to someone else, and she opens up more and more with each episode. So of course she has a lot of colorful things to say in response to each episode.
Lisa Vanderpump shared on Instagram about the gala: “Still reeling from our @VanderpumpDogs Gala. What an incredibly meaningful and memorable night, where friends, family and activists came together with one goal- to create a better world for dogs.”
As much as I hoped it would happen, I never actually thought I would see the day when Danielle Staub is back as a cast member on Real Housewives of New Jersey. What a time to be alive. If anyone was meant to be a reality TV star, it was Danielle Staub.
That’s why it’s so upsetting (and unjust) that Danielle was not asked to be a full-time cast member for her big return to RHONJ. She is at every group event. She knows how to stir the pot. Danielle is doing the most and getting the least. What is going on?
If you think about it, the Real Housewives franchise is a lot like Survivor. Obviously, the Housewives are a lot more glamorous, but it is definitely difficult sticking around in the tribe on both shows.
As Teresa packs for Puerto Rico, she tells Milania that they’ll email Joe Giudice in prison while they’re gone. Without Joe, Tre is glad she has her father to lean on. “He is my rock right now,” she admits. Meanwhile, Dolores is joining Siggy at the doctor’s office to discuss hormone treatments. In her butt. Siggy doesn’t want to be known as “Soggy” anymore, and is hoping getting her hormones balanced out will help shed her new, obnoxious image. Well, that and not sticking your tongue out at other middle-aged women, maybe? But hey – it’s a start.
