On last night’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey we officially bid “Arrivederci” to Bravo’s bankrupt and brokedown version of Lucy and Ethel, because Teresa Giudice finally told Jacqueline Laurita to take her prosciutto and shove it! She has her own Thankyouverymuch. Or maybe it was the other way around? Oh, and Juicy will be rolley-bagging his homemade wine all the way home!
Things started off on the right foot, at least, with nobody having envy over anybody else. Well, maybe Melissa Gorga envies Poison, ’cause now that she’s a business owner/mom she has to do double the work while STILL listening to him complain. At least the Gorgadices are stepping in the right direction, though! Melissa even invites Teresa and Milania to watch her three kids walk in New York Fashion Week.
On tonight’s episode, Joe and Teresa Giudice attempt to have dinner with Chris andJacqueline Laurita but it’s a disaster waiting to happen. Jacs and Teresa’s recently rekindled friendship is blown to hell when Jacqueline accuses Teresa of blaming everyone else for her crimes and slams her for filing a fraudulent bankruptcy.
Nevertheless, it’s hilarious how Jacqueline simultaneously acts like she wants to distance herself from Teresa all while she’s desperate to bring her up in any conversation possible. Plus, we all know when it really comes down to it that Jacqueline would kill to be Teresa’s BFF. So it’s super desperate that Jacqueline dug all the way back to the Season 3 christening incident for material to trash talk Teresa.
At this point, I am just impatiently waiting for the drama to go down between Jacqueline Laurita and enemies turned best friendsTeresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga. We all know that the harmony between Jacqueline and Teresa won’t last for long, so I’m ready for the good stuff to happen. In the mean time we have to sit around and watch Jacqueline try her best to be Teresa’s sidekick all while she makes passive aggressive digs about New Jersey’s queen.
Without a doubt, Jacqueline was pissed off when Teresa didn’t flip out on Siggy Flicker for bringing up the tabloid rumors about Joe Giudice’s alleged adultery – especially since it went horribly awry in 2011 when Jacqueline mentioned tabloid gossip. I didn’t buy it for a second when Jacqueline feigned that she was happy that Teresa had a calmer reaction. As per usual, Jacqueline found another way to throw Teresa under the bus so she can try to bring her down, even though it somehow never works. Jacqueline never makes an impact with her insults, but she still tries.
I know we are only a few episodes in, but I have to say that I still don’t know what to make of Siggy Flicker. At first, I was living for her and I loved watching her sip lobster bisque out of straw since she was still wearing bandages after her face lift.
I am so over hearing Jacqueline Laurita talk about her friendship with Teresa Giudice in the press. Don’t get me wrong, I am intrigued by the ups and downs in their relationship, but at this point it seems like Jacqueline’s paraphrasing her own comments and repeating the same thing over and over again.
We get it. You two were close. You were like sisters. There’s a bond there. You also hate Teresa now because you are jealous of her being the star. We haven’t seen any new drama between these two on the show yet, so maybe Jacqueline isn’t supposed to talk about that until it airs? That’s the only explanation I have for Jacqueline spewing out the same quotes over and over again.
Poison Gorga seems to be confused both about which century he’s living in and that his life is not a 1980’s movie starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. You guys, men with sprayed on muscles DO NOT take care of their own children – they are not babysitters!
In all honesty, it’s still a little unclear to me if Jacqueline Laurita left Real Housewives of New Jersey or if she was fired. I have no idea why she would ever leave that show, so I’m going to go with the latter. Nevertheless, it is very obvious why she is back.
Jacqueline and Chris Laurita have explained that they are going through financial troubles during the first few episodes of this season. They even agreed not to give each other Christmas gifts to be fiscally responsible and Chris said that he sold some of their jewelry for money. So this makes me wonder what is going on with the Laurita business ventures.
