On last night’s Real Housewives Of New Jersey, the saga of Teresa Giudice‘s never-wavering love for Joe continued. Unfortunately for Joe, he’s about to go away for a 41 month ‘staycation’ at the federal penitentiary and no home security cameras are gonna replace him once Teresa takes over.
While Joe binge drinks and verbally abuses his dog, daughters, and wife, Teresa gets ready for the official launch of Turning The Tables. A lot rests on this little book – a veritable ‘How Not To’ manual for aspiring Italian Housewives everywhere. A tale as aged as wine of a woman who vowed to stand by her man through orange is the new black, through bankruptcy and back, through thick and thickening girth, through humiliation and outbursts, through cheating and chutzpah…
When it comes to Real Housewives of New Jersey, I’m so used to the craziness and table flipping and rogue fashion shows amped up on faux fur, pleather, white zin, and screaming–it’s actually weird when we get to see the calmer side of things. Am I right? This week’s episode was relatively free of the drama and cattiness these ladies love to spew. What’s that about? We all know a girls’ weekend is when the claws come out for the housewives. Not this one…only Jacqueline Laurita’s paranoia was present, but honestly, we’re all used to it at this point.
Siggy Flicker deserves a slow clap for the reconciliation I never imagined possible between Jacqueline and Teresa Giudice, and it was certainly refreshing to see more laughing out loud and less lashing out between the frenemies who have been fuming and feuding for ages. Over-under on how long this will last? Carolina Manzo has an idea…
Melissa shared the pic above on Instagram, adding, “My baby girl is growing up! Such a fun party for her yesterday! Making memories! How amazing is this flower wall from @oncewedwalls.” More pictures of adorable Antonia and her birthday party are below!
We were all expecting quite a shit show last night when the ladies of Real Housewives of New Jersey headed to a spa retreat together. But that didn’t happen… Instead Jacqueline Laurita and Teresa Giudice played nice and kinda sorta reconciled. Jacqueline shared her thoughts on the situation in her new blog, and she wonders if maybe Melissa Gorga isn’t too thrilled about the rekindled friendship.
Jacs shares, “What a difference a day makes, huh? I bet you didn’t see that reconciliation coming! Like I said before, there is a lot of love and history between Teresa and me! The chemistry between us is clear and real, even though we frustrate the hell out of each other sometimes. #RollercoasterFriendship #HereWeGoAgain.”
The new Teresa Giudice goes on vacation with one bag. The same old Melissa Gorga goes on vacation with five bags. Or maybe Melissa has become the old Teresa? I honestly can’t remember – a 1000 images of squealing, sequined suitcases swirl before me and blend together into one obnoxious monokini fashion show of Housewives in Hotels. Maybe I need an appointment with Dr. Siggy?
