Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 2

It is over! The very long second season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey finally came to an end last night.

The finale episode brilliantly titled ‘The Heads of the Family Will Roll‘ brought us the same thing we have seen all season. The others vs Danielle Staub. The others claiming they are tired of talking about Danielle, only to gather together and talk about her. The others claiming they want nothing to do with Danielle, only to arrange a sit down with her.

And judging from the previews of the reunion show, we have more others vs Danielle coming our way! Yaay us! Because seeing any of the others decide to disagree with each other, or argue with each other is simply too much to ask for. Though it would be nice to see Caroline call out Teresa on her irresponsible spending habits and $11 mil debt, however, these are moments we can only dream of.

Well folks, last night was no different in this long drawn out season. After stating all season that she wanted nothing to do with Danielle, Caroline decides to call a face to face meeting with Dirty D, bringing us the highlight of the finale.

The episode starts out with the Giudices cooking on their soon to be auctioned off fancy gas range which I might or might not be seriously considering bidding on. They are having a dinner party for all the families sans Danielle of course. A few minutes into dinner, Danielle is brought up as they discuss the charges against Ashley. The Manzos and Lauritas seem upset that Danielle is refusing to drop the charges against Ashley. And I have to ask myself, why should she?

Caroline mentions she wants Danielle to go away, and I once again ask myself – wasn’t Dina the one who asked to meet up with Danielle? Wasn’t Danielle minding her business when Teresa decided to confront her at the country club? Wasn’t Danielle walking away when Ashley pulled out her extensions?

Is Danielle a drama queen nutjob trouble maker? Absolutely! But the others keep contradicting themselves in their actions towards her.

We see Danielle at home as she receives a text from Caroline to meet up. Danielle immediately wants to know how the f*ck Caroline got her number, you know considering she went through all the trouble of getting a new number and going into the witness protection program to get away from her big bad scary co-stars. Danielle, who could have easily said no to the meeting, agrees to meet up with Caroline.

We get yet another scene with the good cop/bad cop Jacqueline and Chris as they attempt to talk some sense into Ashley, and this talk pretty much goes the same way all the others have this season, so moving right along.

Honorable sixth housewife Danny pays Danielle a visit, during which Danielle informs him of her plans to meet up with Caroline. In her interview, Danielle informs us Caroline formed an opinion on her without ever having a conversation with her. Based on this logic, we must all immediately delete the horrific sex tape images from our brains, and wait until our individual sit-downs with Danielle, before we can refer to her as a trashy skank.

Danielle then gives us a great quote, ” Caroline, you are not Carmelo. You are not a Soprano. So stop sending out your little brilliant ones to make it look like you’re not doing anything while you’re sitting there on your proverbial throne judging. Get a life.” I’m guessing ‘proverbial’ must have been Danielle’s word of the month on her spelling calendar or something. And no, Danielle is not referring to NBA player Carmelo Anthony, she means Carmela from the Sopranos of course.

We see Caroline as she prepares to meet with Danielle, during which her daughter Lauren makes perfect sense when she asks her mommy why she wants to meet up with the crazy lady. On the other side of town, Danielle is also getting ready, but this time around, she doesn’t involve her kids, instead calling up her “Energist” as they proceed to do some odd breathing exercises.

Energist – “There you go, did you feel that?”

Danielle – “Oh yeah, I always feel it when you start on me.”

Too easy, so I will move along. The ladies drive to meet with one another and Danielle lets us know she has no reason to stress because “there’s guys here with guns.” As Danielle enters the the private room to meet with an already seated Caroline, Bravo decides to tease us a little bit longer by cutting away from the scene. What the hay! I had to sit through 9 non-eventful episodes this season to get to the dramatic Country club episode, so what’s a few more minutes of waiting.

Danielle Staub

The finale of the Real Housewives of New Jersey titled ‘The Heads of Family Will Roll‘ airs tonight on Bravo.

After getting wrapped up in the Danielle drama for way too long, Caroline is ready to take a stand. Wanting to support her family and friends, especially Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley, who is in jeopardy of having the hair-pulling incident on her permanent record, Caroline is ready to meet face-to-face with the enemy Danielle.

Meanwhile, Danielle, still claiming to be the victim of all Housewife drama discusses who is behind the attacks with her partner-in-crime Danny. Will Caroline’s attempt to get rid of Danielle finally work or are we in for another table-flipping situation? Find out tonight at 10/9c. A preview clip is below.


In other news, it seems with the end of the Real Housewives of New Jersey in sight, Kim Granatell is desperate to keep her name in the press.

Weeks after crashing the birthday party of Danielle Staub, the two-faced trouble maker is up to a new stunt. According to RadarOnline, Kim G., who owns both a Bentley and a Ferrari, plans on buying out all of Teresa Giudice’s home items at her upcoming auction.

The reason? Well for one Kimmie is not a fan of Teresa’s, adding, “I’m going to buy everything and re-sell it on eBay.” Kim tells Radar she plans on donating the proceeds to the Emmanuel Cancer charity.

Kim G. also manages to take a parting shot at Teresa, saying: “Her things should be for sale on a folding table on Mulberry Street.” Ouch.

And finally, RadarOnline is also reporting all of the New Jersey Housewives have been banned from the North Jersey Country Club. You know, the same country club in which the whole Danielle extension yanking drama went down.

The club’s General Manager John Stanley sent out a letter to the club members on July 19 apologizing, stating the ladies are not welcome back at the club, while also calling their behavior staged.

A preview clip of the finale episode is below -

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON KIM G’S PLANS AND THE FINALE EPISODE OF THE NJ HOUSEWIVES?

The Hills are alive with the Giudice indeed. Airing last night was Episode 15 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, which might or might not have been one of the more boring episodes this season.

What did we learn last night? Well for one, ‘Ethninticity’ is a word according to Danielle Staub, Caroline Manzo finds it cute and adorable when Joe Giudice decides to throw a temper tantrum and go on a cursing rampage around kids, and Jacqueline Laurita really really cares about “old people.”

The episode starts out with the families as they get ready to dock in Naples. We immediately see a very cranky Joe and Teresa tries to convince us the source of this is that Joe doesn’t like being away from his business for a week. They all get on the bus, and Caroline tells us she’s annoyed by the Giudice children. Teresa however makes it clear she is not responsible for Caroline’s funky mood.

Danielle and her eyebrows attempt a heart to heart with her daughters, as she wants to discuss her birth mother. But before getting to the main topic, Danielle takes us down a trip on victims’ memory lane, rehashing Kim G’s betrayal and Teresa’s big mouth. And at the end of this convo, I’m still uncertain what the point of Danielle’s sit down with her daughters was. This just seems like an opportunity for Danielle to share her woe-is-me-Kim G-betrayed-me sob story. We do find out Danielle’s mother had her at age 15, but something tells me her daughters already knew that.

The families go out to dinner and we see the men eating “like they were going to jail.” Joe mentions they might have to hike it when visiting his family the next day. Jacqueline is immediately concerned as she realizes babies and old people do not know how to hike. Teresa however assures us in her interview that all will be well as Italy also has babies and old people, who hike everyday.

Danielle‘s favorite ex-con Danny decides to pay her a visit and informs her the others are gone to Italy. Danielle, who has had to suffer the last couple of weeks/months without a panini, is happy as she can now drive over to the market in Franklin Lakes without having to fear for her life. Danny randomly and oddly brings up Ashley, stating he has met some of her friends who have offered to help him. Help with what exactly? We’re not told. Danielle immediately goes on an Ashley bashing rampage. “She doesn’t have friends, she’s got terroristic tendencies,” said former prostitution whore/kidnapper Danielle.

Danny decides he needs to keep tabs on the then teenage Ashley, and Danielle encourages this because Ashley’s “got a special kind of crazy,” says the nutty pot.

We are now back in Italy and as the families get ready to leave for Joe’s hometown, the cursing resumes as the cranky and bankrupt Joe complains about the prices of things. Perhaps someone should inform Joe luxurious trips to Italy don’t come cheap. But then again Joe isn’t quite used to taking responsibility for his debts.

And at this point, I wonder just how much Bravo is shelling out for this fancy trip. As I said earlier, Bravo typically foots the bill for the ladies from the Housewives franchise to take a trip each season. My guess is Bravo was not willing to cover the expenses for the kids, grand parents and other family members involved in this trip, which would explain Joe’s outbursts. Which would then also mean the bankrupt and suppose to be broke Giudices continued to live beyond their means by bringing their whole family to Italy. What I wouldn’t do to know the amount of debt the Giudices have racked up since filing for bankruptcy back in October.

Teresa Giudice and Joe Giudice In Court

As the end of the season nears, a new episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey titled ‘Hills Are Alive With Giudice’ airs tonight.

As the housewives continue their overseas vacation, some of the ladies have trouble hiding their foul moods. Will Teresa’s rambunctious young ones ruin the trip for the other families or will Teresa be able to control the girls? Meanwhile, back in Franklin Lakes Danielle enjoys the freedom of knowing the other women are out of the country. Heading out to lunch with Danny, Danielle opens up about her fears of being ambushed by the other housewives. Will Danielle have to run for cover once the ladies return or will there ever be Housewife a truce? Find out tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On to the big news of the day. The Star-Ledger is reporting that Teresa Giudice and hubby Joe Giudice have been able to get a postponement on their scheduled Aug 22 auction.

The auction for the couple, pictured above during their court appearance this morning, has now been set for October 3. According to the Ledger, the Giudices appeared in Newark this morning before U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Morris, who stated he would allow the postponement of the auction to allow for a review of which items can be sold. The judge however made it clear this is not to cancel the auction.

The Star-Ledger reports the Giudices objected to the sales of a number of items in the auction, including children’s toys, beds and antique accessories. They reportedly feared that some used personal property would fetch far less than it would cost to replace it.

The Judge agreed that their children’s items should be removed from the auction list, and has appointed a court-appointed trustee and auction agent to meet with the Giudices and go through every item to decide what items will be put up for sale and which will remain exempt.

Guess those of us interested in that nice gas range will have to wait a few more weeks.

Real Housewives of New Jersey

We are on episode 14 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. The bad news? It was a pretty non eventful episode that only featured the highly entertaining nuttyness known as Danielle Staub for a few minutes. The good news? there’s only two more episodes left. Just two more episodes and the second season will be finally over. That is until the reunion comes around of course.

A while back, our genius reader gigi1234 had a highlarious view on what the reunion should would be like -

Dirty D [Danielle] – “Kim who, Teresa who, Manzo who?”
Dina – “I’m in such a spiritual place now I simply choose to not comment” sitting w/cat oil stains on her Dolce dress.
Jacqueline – “Yea I know Ashley has no life, no interest & is disrespectful BUT”
Chewbaca [Teresa] – “I can’t comment on the foreclures since it really only has to do w/my husbands business. You know Joe is an entremanure & aint he hot”
Caroline - will be on couch not saying a word nursing Albie”

Let’s all hope the NJ ladies can give us a great reunion show a la the Real Housewives of NYC, but please Bravo let’s not make it 3 hours. I simply don’t think I want to sit through 3 hours of everyone against Danielle.

Guess it’s time to get into last night’s episode. It starts off the Jacqueline and her hubby Chris deciding to pay the Giudices a visit at their luxurious mansion. Jacqueline mentions Joe received a DUI and is puzzled because “Joe was not drinking and was not drunk,” during their night out. Really Jacqueline? Not even one drink by Joe? Not sure I’m buying this.

Danielle and her feathered head ex-con buddy Danny are shown eating out and of course, the topic of Joe’s DUI is brought up. Before Danielle can fully dissect the issue, we are forced to listen to Joe’s lies explanation of his version of events. “I was tired, it wasn’t from drinking at all,” claims Joe.

It’s now back to Danielle and the former prostitution whore actually makes good sense when she wonders out-loud why Joe simply couldn’t call a cab, being that he could afford to. Wondering if he could actually afford to, you know following the bankruptcy and over-spending wife. Joe then tries to explain away his .11 alcohol level, saying he started downing shots once at his friend’s house, following the accident. According to the DailyRecord.com, this is a defense is known as a ”glove box defense,” or claim of drinking after an accident so a blood test reading would be invalid.

Unfortunately for Joe, the cops didn’t buy his glove box defense, with the cops stating that the witness Joe called to support his claim of drinking only after the crash ”completely lacked credibility” and ”was out and out lying.” Ouch.

It’s now back to Danielle, who believes Joe’s DUI is a result of karma. “I’m just going to continue living in the love and light that they make fun of, while their darkness rains upon them, says Danielle, who’s sex tape would be ultimately released just months after uttering these words.

And for the fans of the show who say Bravo shouldn’t have Danielle and her supporting cast on the show, well you know what they say – be careful what you wish for, as the next 55 minutes of the show will be Danielle free.

Teresa, Caroline and Jacqueline meet up and Teresa makes an interesting comment. “Since the accident, it has been a stressful time for us, cause it’s a small town, everybody talks,” states Teresa, who’s bankruptcy filing would be unveiled just months after uttering these words. If their small town was abuzz about Joe’s DUI, one can only imagine all the yapping that took place regarding their $11 mil debt.

And then randomly out of the blue, the three ladies decide that Joe’s arrest is too stressful for them to handle or something, as the talk of taking a trip to Italy is randomly brought up. This whole scene seems very staged, as Bravo PAYS for these trips taken by the housewives, including the infamous St. John trip for the NYC Housewives, and the Florida trip taken by the OC Housewives. The Atlanta housewives also took a trip for their upcoming third season. So basically, this scene is phony and the trip idea was Bravo’s.

Caroline heads over to the Brownstone to inform her bobby about the trip, and maybe it’s just me, but Al seems more and more disinterested in Caroline as the days go by. And in what seems like perfect foreshadowing, Al states he doesn’t want a trip with Teresa’s kids 18 kids running around. Jacqueline wants to bring her parents to be babysitters, while Teresa feels it would be a good idea to bring her parents “you know since that’s where they were born.” All the husbands are on board, and Italy is about to get some NJ trash coming their way! And by NJ trash, I mean the Jersey Shore cast Teresa Giudice.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Tonight marks episode 14 of the very long neverending current season of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.

In tonight’s episode, the housewives take a trip to Venice, Italy sans Danielle Staub. Caroline, Teresa and Jacqueline head to Venice for a family vacation and are excited to explore the city on water. The three and their crew enjoy all that the city has to offer but are upset by their non-singing gondola guys! Will the ladies make it through the trip in one piece or will the famous Housewife drama follow them across seas? Find out tonight at10/9c on Bravo.

Also coming up in tonight’s episode is the Joe Giudice DWI arrest. Joe was arrested back on January 14th for driving under the influence, and as we reported yesterday, he has been sentenced for his driving offense.

However in a preview clip for tonight’s new episode, Joe denies he was drinking that night, even though his blood-alcohol content after the crash was .11 percent, above the .08 percent at which a motorist is considered intoxicated in New Jersey.

This isn’t the first time Joe has had driving issues, as his driving license has been suspended an astonishing total of 9.4 years out of the last 20 years. As for Joe’s sentence, the judge “imposed $864 in penalties; revoked his driver’s license for 12 months; and ordered him to perform 30 days community service. A 30-day jail sentence was suspended, providing the community service is completed.”

UPDATE - Thanks to our reader Bryan, Danielle Staub is now denying to HollywoodLife that she tweeted Jacqueline’s daughter Ashley Holmes should kill herself.

This all began last week when a twitter user @PrinceEdwiin tweeted to Danielle that it was his birthday and he wanted “Ashley Holmes to kill herself and videotape it.” Danielle then replied to him saying: “happy birthday. May every wish come true!”

Well Danielle’s stupid defense is now that she doesn’t read every single tweet sent to her and that she sometimes barely reads what is said to her, adding that “I never tweeted that Ashley should kill herself! I would never wish death upon Ashley! I can’t stand the fact it has gotten this far.” Umm then who made the tweet Danielle?

Danielle also seems to be confused about how twitter works as she wonders how @PrinceEdwin was able to tweet to her since he doesn’t follow her. Umm will someone please inform Danielle people who don’t follow you can tweet to you?

TELL US – ARE YOU BUYING DANIELLE’S STORY? WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST EPISODE OF THE NEW JERSEY HOUSEWIVES?

Last night brought us the 13th episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, featuring the big showdown between Danielle Staub and former BFF Kim Granatell.

After watching the drama that took place between these two, I only have three questions. Who is nuttier between the two? Who is the bigger drama queen? And did Danielle finally meet her match in Kim G?

The episode begins with the morally and financially bankrupt Giudices, who have now come up with another creative way to continue living beyond their means, even after filing bankruptcy. Joe and Teresa visit the Brownstone to plan out yet another party. This time around, it’s for baby Audriana‘s christening and Teresa declares she wants ice sculptures. Teresa then reveals that the cause of Dina not being around anymore is Danielle. Evidently their close friendship only extended to being in front of Bravo cameras.

Next up we see Danielle pull up to a hospital, and we soon find out this TMI hospital visit is for her 16-year-old daughter’s first visit to see a OB-GYN, and I find myself asking if it was really necessary for Danielle to bring the cameras around for something so private. I mean it’s bad enough Christine has Danielle for a mother, is it really necessary to have her OB-GYN appointments filmed? Are we about to see poor Christine’s pap smear? Are the other home viewers as uncomfortable for Christine as I am at this point? Thankfully, we find out this appointment was more of a talking one. Danielle decides she isn’t done embarrassing her daughter on national television and proceeds to ask her if she’s having sex or “being a good girl” rather. An embarrassed Christine refuses to answer, and we get a HPV after school special. In this scene we also find out born again virgin Danielle does not date, not surprising considering she’s too busy making sex tapes with randoms.

Christopher Manzo is playing some pool with best friend John G. who just happens to be Kim G’s son. Kim G. decides to randomly show up with some popcorn for the adult men, and immediately gives us this awkward scene when she tries to get Christoper to arrange a playdate between she and Caroline. “Umm… Why don’t we go with you,” is what Chris is able to muster up. Kim G. is game and ready to do whatever it takes to become a regular on the show Caroline Manzo’s new BFF!

It’s the day of the wedding quinceanera christening and we see Teresa getting her girls ready. “Mom, where’s my purse? Can I wear my silver Juicy Couture one?” asks diva in training Gia. Teresa shares that Joe’s a little grumpy this morning due to working long hours in the pizzeria, oops his father’s pizzeria that is of course. Me thinks Joe’s a little grumpy cause he had just gone bankrupt trying to make his wife happy, but that’s just me.

We are now onto the 12th episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey, and while it wasn’t as good as next week’s episode will be, it was still very interesting to say the least.

There are two angles one can go with in doing this recap. One is we finally get to meet Tom Staub, the man behind the legend, you know the man who decided Danielle Staub was fit to be his wife and the mother of his children. The other angle is Teresa Giudice of course, who was one of the most searched people on the internet yesterday thanks to the news of the impending public auction of her home items, and her thirst for diamonds, you know considering this episode was taped just a few weeks after she signed off on the bankruptcy documents. Oh what the hey, I say let’s go with both angles!

The episode starts off with some precious family time with the Giudices as they do monopoly night. When Joe wasn’t busy threatening to kick one of his daughters, Teresa decides to bring up their upcoming 10th anniversary. Teresa can’t believe she and Joe have been married for 10 years because “it feels like 5.” Teresa asks the kids for anniversary gift ideas and one of their daughters suggests chocolate and flowers, but bankrupt Teresa makes it clear that’s not good enough. Joe has an even better suggestion, when he jokingly suggests the $100 luxury tax ring, before retracting it, joking saying that he couldn’t even afford that. Must say the financial jokes by Joe are very telling. Notice how they seemed to start just a few episodes ago? Teresa however makes it clear there will be no hanky panky for one month if Joe doesn’t come through, and I can’t help but wonder if Teresa can even go a week with no hanky panky from Jiucy Joe.

Danielle decides to meet up with her friend/party planner to plan a party for herself her daughter Christine‘s sweet 16. Danielle then lets us know she plans to make this a memorable party for herself Christine because she never had a birthday party “thrown to” her until she was 47-years-old. Really Danielle? Not even a party at 1? 10? 16? 18? 21? 30? 40? 45? Well since Danielle is not known to ever lie or exaggerate, I will go ahead and take her word for this.

Christine reveals her idea to donate all proceeds from her party to a charity and Dirty D decides this is a perfect moment to take credit for Christine’s idea because that’s her daughter and she gave birth to her. And I take a moment to ponder how Danielle’s daughters seem to have turned out amazing and well grounded in spite of their mother. Danielle asks Christine if she wants to invite her father and Christine answers yes. Danielle then lets us know that Tom hasn’t been the best father in the world to his daughters, and I can’t help but wonder if Danielle is being truthful about this, or just trying to paint her ex in a bad light out of vengeance, not that this is Danielle’s MO or anything.

Jacqueline and Caroline meet up and yet again Caroline is making perfect sense when she advises Jacqueline to distance herself from the three-faced Kim G. and focus on her daughter.

The Giudices and the Lauritas have a get together during which Joe, who looks rather stressed, ponders what to get his wife for their upcoming 10th anniversary. Joe mentions the 10-year gift has to be a “big one,” bankruptcy be damned. Teresa, who just signed off on bankruptcy papers to the debt of $11 mil a few weeks earlier, is then shown having a conversation with Jacqueline. “I love diamonds, diamonds and diamonds and diamonds,” says the bankrupt Teresa when asked what she wants for her anniversary by Jacqueline. And how genius are the show’s editors for choosing the oh so perfect background music for this ridiculous scene.

And it’s now that time of the show, when we get to see the hotness known as Albie Manzo. This time around, Albie is sporting a buzz cut, which might or might not be slightly taking away from his hotness, and we find out Albie has joined the police academy while waiting to get into a new law school. Must say it’s nice to see a Manzo with ambitions that go beyond the Brownstone.
