A few months ago, I would have never imagined that Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga would peacefully come together for a family gathering. Times have really changed though!
Both the Gorgas and the Giudices celebrated the birthday of Teresa and Joe Gorga’s father, Giacinto Gorga, and Gino Gorga in one big happy family celebration. All of the adorable Giudice girls – Gia, Gabriella, Milania, and Audriana – were present, hamming it up for the cameras, and the Gorga kids – Antonia, Gino, and Joey – were as cute and demure and darling as always.
Caroline weighs in on the Teresa and Kathy/Rosie situation: “Kathy is good people, Rosie is good people and they’re doing it from their heart. So I’d like Teresa to open up her heart and just understand that people make mistakes and say bad things they don’t mean sometimes and I think it’s time she kind of grows up and accepts them back.”
The newbie shared that watching the episode was a hard reminder of losing her beloved Boo. “Losing Boo was one of the hardest things I’ve ever been through. He really was my best friend. Even though he couldn’t talk to me, I know without a doubt that he “got” me. Through thick and thin, Boo was by my side and always brought me such comfort. He was my protector and according to my girlfriends, the only “man” I ever trusted. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t miss Boo terribly, but I know that he’s always with me in spirit.”
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…
