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.”
I really live for it every time Kim DePaola aka the notorious Kim D shows up on Real Housewives of New Jersey. She is always up to no good and she is a shameless shit stirrer, but she really makes good TV. I would hate to deal with her in real life, but she never fails to entertain me.
I always look forward to a Kim D appearance. I bet other people feel the same way, so I wouldn’t be shocked if Kim D’s appearances increased the ratings for Real Housewives of New Jersey. She’s the ideal cameo appearance. I love how we aren’t forced to get to know her as a main cast member, but she just shows up for the gossip and drama. That is really all I want from Kim D and she always delivers.
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.
After watching a clip from tonight’s show, Teresa says she thought it was funny when Dolores Cataniawas saying she looked like Milania with her furry headband on. “I love my headbands. Especially when they have fur.”
The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been super dramatic, but there is definitely some dead weight if I’m keeping it real. You can fill in the blanks on this one, but in my opinion Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, and Jacqueline Laurita, all make great TV, and then there are the other ladies…. I mean, people actually attacked Melissa’s 21-year-old store manager Derek Zagami, who was not even present, to get a story line. And now he is not working there anymore, is that a coincidence?
Really though. As much as I love this show (and I’m obsessed) the casting is just not 100%. Sure, I like the other cast members as people, but that doesn’t mean that they have what it takes to be entertaining on reality television. So I would actually love it if Danielle Staub returned. And believe it or not, Teresa actually agrees that Danielle should make a comeback. Wait. What?
To Vermont we go! To Vermont we go… You can take the girls out of Jersey but you can’t take the Real Housewives Of New Jersey out of the girls! Even if you put them in big giant snow boots and plain old terry cloth bathrobes. Last night also signified the return of Kim D (for Desperate!), which in my book is always a good thing! Run on with the big boys, Kim, run on!
Melissa Gorga has lofty ideas to turn the trip to Vermont into one last relaxing weekend for Teresa Giudice before Joe goes to prison and Teresa becomes a single mom. Melissa even invited Teresa’s close friends Robyn and Christina. Unfortunately, Teresa’s girls weekend is beset by problems from the get-go. Two of those problems are named Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pieri.
