Therapy Schmerapy, eh. Teresa Giudice and Joe G-to-the-Orga are clearly beyond help. Existing in a world where all versions of rationale just slip in one ear and right out the other. As Teresa so aptly put it, “I don’t store things in my brain.” Clearly.
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey, the siblings from hell attempted to see a therapist to mend their fractured relationship. I guess they don’t understand that it takes way more than one hour-long appointment to patch things up, but Bravo doesn’t have the time to be airing all that. We would be watching RHONJ season 35 if that be the case.
Now I’m no Teresa hater, I find her tolerable and she has redeeming qualities; one of which is her eternal optimism and goofball nature. I don’t know how the Gorgadice families got into this mess that has come to dominate my television and yours for the last two years, and frankly I think both Teresa and Joe, of the salmon colored button-down, told versions of the truth that make sense.
Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey focused on the important things in life: Rosie’s jaunty cap collection, the remix of “On Display,” and friends doing everything in their power to maintain a strong bond through mutual respect, listening, and give-and-take. Oh wait, maybe not that last thing…
Caroline Manzo? More like Caroline Done-zo! She is way over Teresa Giudice’s behavior. I mean she only wanted to return some swimsuits in the least set-up and manipulated scene ever and she ends up in the midst of World War Tre? Uh uh. No way. Caroline is fed up…and you don’t want to see Caroline fed up because fed up Caroline looks like Caroline always looks scary. The Manzo brood,Greg Bennett, and Uncle Chris Laurita are drinking some sucky read wine in the yard. Laurenis worried about Jacqueline after hearing stories of tabloid-gate twenty-twelve. Chris regales the children with stories of a Jacqueline once so loony, she threw all her ex-husband’s belongings into their front yard. Basically, he opines, she is now throwing all of Teresa’s metaphorical crap onto their manicured lawn. Chris wonders why women can’t handle fights with a quick discussion and then forgive and forget like he and his fellow brawn practice. Oh yeah, emotionally emoted emotions.
It’s #PrideByBravo and out to celebrate the momentous occasion are some of our favorite Bravolebrities! The stars have been updating their twitters with photos of the event. Below are some of our favorites!

Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was a knockdown, drag-out war of words. It would appear that this is the beginning of the bitter end for former besties Teresa Giudice and Jacqueline Laurita. I hate a reality TV friendship divorce – I feel like I need to have a funeral for Jacqueresa. Next week I’m so wearing black while tuning in.
Some other stuff happened like Lauren Manzo continued to complain about being fat and drinking egg whites while her parents made snippy comments about how she is fat.
So I guess Teresa and Joe Giudice are so broke they’re selling fake stories – or photos – to the tabloids (or volunteering to let the tabloids run stories about them depending on whom you ask and what week), yet they’re building a brand new carport and a garage with an inlaw apartment. Teresa wants her parents to live there. Apparently Teresa has also installed a new closet. I’m sure she cleaned out all of Italy’s marble reserve and all of JoAnn Fabrics fake gold leaf for the accents.
Remember when they were the closest of friends? I guess reality television really does change people, and that is evident when you look at the relationship between Real Housewives of New Jersey’sJacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice. Reality Tea has an exclusive source who is close with all of the ladies in the Garden State franchise. Our insider, who wishes to remain anonymous, says that with Jacq, what you see is what you get, but Teresa has allowed fame to go to her head.
The sources tells us, “Jacqueline is one of the nicest people you will ever meEt. She is a true friend and has a heart of gold. She is a sweetheart. She is 10000% real. Teresa is the exact opposite. She competes with anything breathing… Kim D. and her are not as close as you think. Kim D. uses Teresa for the exposure Teresa gives her store. Kim D. liked Melissa and even asked her to walk in her fashion show the 1st season they were on. Teresa told her to pick a side and Kim. D. picked Teresa’s side. All the ‘true’ friends Teresa ever had are no longer friends with her. Now, she claims Kim D., her makeup artist, and other random people are her best friends. Teresa only is friends with people she feels she is above or she can use.”
Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey there was actually a sweet storyline. Jaime Laurita got married and it was really, really beautiful. Although everyone mostly got along, there was some trouble over a tabloid article Teresa Giudicedid. Melissa Gorga also gave us a demo of her new song, which, aaaaaaahhhh… I wish I could un-hear. Ok, I admit – it was a fun dance song…
Also, Caroline Manzo has been referring to herself in third person a lot, which has me worried. Nonetheless, I think I’m going to refer to Caroline Manzo as Caroline Manzo at all times. Caroline Manzo probably doesn’t like when people do that to Caroline Manzo.
Things begin with Jacqueline Laurita and Chris discovering an oh so conveniently placed copy of In Touch Weekly which also oh so conveniently has a photo of Teresa, Gabriella (I think) and a puppy on the cover. I wonder if room service is doling these mags out – you know, leaving it in front of the door like they do USA Today and The Wall Street Journal. Frankly, it’s not a bad idea – I love tabloids.
A small part of me wonders if all the drama on Real Housewives of New Jersey is a publicity stunt. I just cannot believe family members and friends can be so vitriolic towards each other. After some serious drama during the taping of The View last week, Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga continued their escalating drama on Twitter AND in their personal blogs.
On her Fabulicous website, Teresa told her side of the story about why she demanded a solo taping on The View. Teresa explains that she wasn’t aware of what Melissa and cousin Kathy Wakile said during their segment until watching it from her Miami hotel room yesterday.
“It’s hard to get your thoughts straight when you’re being interviewed for TV — especially when you’re trying to talk to 5 women at once like on The View and there are no ‘retakes.’
I only heard today that Melissa called me a liar or a fibber or whatever, when the press started calling me for my response. I’ve been telling the same story–the truth–since it happened. Suddenly Melissa has a new answer for it, fresh from her new PR people: it’ a lie and it’s my ‘crutch.’ Are you kidding me?”
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
