To be honest, I felt pretty blah about this current Real Housewives of New Jersey season. In my opinion, Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita really brought their A game….and I’ll let you fill in the rest. But things did start to heat up once the battle lines were drawn after the crazy Vermont trip when Jacqueline came for both Melissa and Teresa. After all of that, I’m curious to see how the reunion went down.
Teresa recently described it as “pretty epic.” That’s saying a lot since the last few reunions seemed to be pretty tough for the notorious table flipper. It sounds like she felt like she won her battles, defended herself well, or something else positive. Hopefully it’s not a total love fest and she just put Jacqueline in her place. Nevertheless, I cannot wait to see how it all goes down and what Tre and the other ladies think about it.
Siggy had such potential when she first showed up on the scene immediately after a face lift while she drank lobster bisque through a straw, but she is trying to be a group therapist on a show with viewers who live for the fighting. It doesn’t line up for me. And not only that, but what is her story line? Aside from getting involved with other people’s lives, please tell me. Someone? Please.
Last night was the pre-finale for Real Housewives Of New Jersey. Since Jacqueline Laurita had laryngitis, she let Milinia do all the talking for her. Finally because at least Milania’s outbursts make a lot more sense! A silent Jacq is still deadly though… thank be the powers of the smart phone put into dumb hands.
Oh that Milania, I don’t care – I love her. Teresa Giudice acknowledges that Milania is not adjusting well to Juicy being “away.” And why should she? On Juicy’s first day in the slammer, Joe,Melissa Gorga, and the kids come over with sprinkle cookies Chinese food to check in on Teresa and the girls. They find Milania mouthing off all kinds of projecting, and Teresa is in a tailspin.
I was honestly a little offended that Jacqueline and any Housewife not named Teresa were so prominently featured during such a crucial episode, but I really couldn’t stomach it when Jacqueline was talking about how she was so upset seeing Joe and Teresa hug before he left. It didn’t seem authentic and it’s hard to follow her train of thought: does she love Teresa or hate her? I get that life isn’t that black and white, but it’s just such two extremes going from wanting to be BFF’s to constantly trashing her. And well, Teresa isn’t here for it.
Jacqueline claims she “can’t remember” the last episode, adding, “So I’m just going to share my thoughts on Melissa Gorga because…why not?” She says Melissa is a “two-faced trouble making RAT!” who lies. A lot. “The list is a mile long. It’s insane. I will save some of her lies in my back pocket for a later time.”
Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers will never forget Teresa Giudice yelling “prostitution whore” and flipping a table in response to Danielle Staub during the show’s first season. They brawled at a country club and went tit for tat at the reunion. And now the two biggest personalities in the show’s history were spotted doing yoga together. Wait. What?
Before unraveling that mess, Melissa focuses on Juicy Joe’s departure for “camp.” She writes, “I think we can all agree that last night’s episode was so raw and emotional. No matter how you look at the situation, it is heartbreaking to see a family go through something like this. Teresa [Giudice]and her girls are incredibly strong. I’m so happy that we were able to be there for them and have the kids spend time together with Joe Giudice before he went away.”
Last night Real Housewives Of New Jersey lost one of its greatest assets when Joe Giudice left for prison. Just think – all it took for the Gorgadices to mend their family feud was for Juicy to get incarcerated!
The episode begins counting down the days before Joe goes “away” for 41 months. No one feels it as deeply as Teresa Giudice, who tries to make each moment count with special activities for the girls to bond with their dad. First is a little Magnolia Bakery plug to decorate cupcakes for the birthdays Joe will miss while locked up. Also, there was glitter and we know Teresa has never been able to turn her back on an errant piece of glitter.
