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.
I’m glad Jacqueline Laurita is back on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s a bit of a loose cannon and just lays it all out there, giving zero effs about holding back. She used to be an amazing Tipsy Tweeter but nowadays we’ll have to settle for her bitchy blogging instead. After last night’s episode Jacqueline has plenty to say, especially where Melissa Gorga is concerned. Get your popcorn and pinot because it’s a long one.
She shared, “After seeing that episode, I realized I was right about the feelings of doubt I was having about Teresa and Melissa. They were clearly not my friends before we ever got to Vermont.” Adding, “I was really upset when Teresa and Melissa brought up Strippergate to me and tried to turn it around on me. In fact, I was blown away. They both know the truth. I thought it was dirty that they teamed up to do that to me. I’m certainly not proud of the way I acted at dinner.”
Siggy Flicker may be Real Housewives Of New Jersey‘s resident (self-appointed) relationship expert, but I’m questioning her sanity and her advice. I mean for all this tawk about soldiers, she’s sure turned into one of Jacqueline Laurita‘s right quick! Jacqueline’s bite is just as scary as her bark, so I get it.
As Dolores Catania warns, Siggy better stop throwing salami and provolone into the pen because when she runs out the Jacqocerous is going to get very angry and chomp her hand.
Honestly, Dolores is far more capable as a relationship expert when it comes to the chaos of Jersey than Siggy.
Melissa Gorga isn’t kidding when she describes Jacqueline Laurita‘s behavior in Vermont as “all all sorts of CRAZY.” Because, well, Jacqueline’s behavior in general is pretty much completely crazy.
The ladies of Real Housewives Of New Jersey tried to take a relaxing vacation, but “obviously that didn’t happen.” For Melissa, At least one thing was cleared up in Vermont – she had a serious epiphany about Jacqueline!
“That night in Vermont confirmed for me that Jacqueline is a sh–ty friend, completely unstable, and someone that NEVER had an interest in helping our family or being my friend,” seethes Melissa.
“You know the saying — Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice… Well, that’s how I feel after everything that happened with Jacqueline on this episode. I really thought we were on the right path as friends, until that screwed up dinner.”
