Teresa admits that without Joe, who is serving 41 months in Fort Dix Correctional Facility, their family feels “incomplete” and that being a single mom to 4 girls is overwhelming. “It’s hard, we are just doing the best that we can, getting through it day by day… ”
Ever since Jacqueline Laurita shared her family’s financial difficulties during the premiere of Real Housewives of New Jersey this season, I can’t help feeling like she’s determined to stay on this show. Don’t get me wrong, I would feel the same way, but I feel like she’s just such a shit stirrer, especially when it comes to Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga’s family drama. She seems like more of an instigator than a peacemaker since she has no qualms interfering and criticizing Teresa and Melissa for how they handle familial issues.
Now, Jacqueline has taken it upon herself to be the crusader for Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. I know she is legitimately friends with them and cares about their well-being, but I feel like she is always riling them up to talk shit about Teresa and adding fuel to the fire. Sure, a big part of being on reality TV is talking about your feelings to create story line, but Kathy and Rosie are not even Housewives, so it’s a little much for me.
A new week means a new gallery of the reality TV stars showing off, throwing shade, or sharing snapshots on Twitter and Instagram. Then there’s Bethenny Frankel, in a category all of her own, Skinnygirl! Everything! Forever!, showing off her bikini body while promoting her watermelon line.
No one wants peaceful family happiness more than Siggy Flicker, but if there’s one message she would like to impart to her fellow Real Housewives Of New Jersey stars it’s that in matters of resolution “TIMING IS EVERYTHING!” (the CAPs were Siggy’s).
As Siggy so aptly reminds us, a lack of timing “applies to a lot of the relationship turmoil that’s happening during this season of RHONJ.” And every other season in the human existence of Real Housewives Of New Jersey… (this is the storyline that doesn’t end…) The latest Timing Turmoil belonged to Teresa Giudice, Rosie Pierri, and Kathy Wakile – cousins who may wave at each other if they saw each other on the street, but otherwise only interact if there is a Bravo camera trained on them!
Season 7 of Real Housewives Of New Jersey continues to center around the transformation of Teresa Giudice. Flashbacks to the season 4 reunion feature an enraged Teresa, morphed into TreHulk – bright green dress and all! – screaming into Kathy Wakile‘s face, contrasted with a post-prison Teresa, calmly explaining that she’s just “not ready” to deal with the emotional weight of rebuilding her relationships with her cousins. Instead, it is Rosie screaming in frustration.
It exemplifies a point that no one on Real Housewives of New Jersey seems to understand until it is way too late: no matter how much you want it so, no matter how much you regret your actions – from the person you married, to the words you said, to all the money you shouldn’t have spent – you can’t erase the past. In the immortal words of Cher, “If I could turn back time/If I could find a way/ I’d take back those words that hurt you…”
Also throwing a party last night was Us Magazine. Showing up for that event was Bethenny Frankel and her sidekick Carole Radziwill, as well as Padma Lakshmi and others. Check out all of the photos below!
On last night’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey, desperation and delusion was in the air…I am pretty sure that scent is sprayed over Montville with a crop duster.
Siggy Flicker doesn’t seem to understand that her children are not squishy stuffed animals she can squeeze, squeal at, dress up, and toss around. On the other hand, Siggy’s children don’t understand that she is their mother and they should show her some respect! I dunno maybe it has something to do with Siggy decorating her daughter’s room in No.1 Sophie paraphernalia? Or acting like One Direction has showed up every time she sees Josh?
When Josh returns home from passing his driver’s test, the very first words out of mouth are “When are you gonna buy me a car?” Someone is driving straight into his future on the Teresa Giudice entitlement train!
