On last week's episode of Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jacqueline gave us more ammunition for thinking she made need sedatives when she freaked out on Teresa Giudice in a boutique and then announced that she thinks Teresa needs an intervention. Um… transference, much?
In her Bravo blogJacqueline laughs off her insanity. Am I the only one who's concerned? But she also talks about how she was feeling at the time and makes some valid points about Teresa's behaviors and motivations. Is the therapy paying off, Jacqs?
On Teresa's Family Issues & The Retreat:
"It just seemed odd to me that, miraculously, Teresa wanted to make an effort to resolve everything with her family, after I had been trying to make that happen for two years prior! Why now? I wasn't buying into the sincerity of it all," Jacqueline begins.
Those of you dying to see the possibility of Joe Giudice in handcuffs will have to wait AGAIN!
The Real Housewives of New Jersey star was supposed to begin his trial related to a false identity and fraud case this month, but his trial has been delayed for the umpteenth time and is now scheduled to start in October.
According to NJ.com, Joe's attorney is busy with a homicide case and has no time for Juicy apparently! That's a lucky break! Joe faces up to 10 years in prison related to obtaining a fraudulent license, which was reportedly captured on camera according to the latest development.
Jennifer Dalton is the new girl on the Franklin Lakes block and she has wasted no time taking on the biggest drama starter of them all: Kim DePaola! The ladies bitterly hate each other and have been slamming each other left and right; on twitter, in interviews, in blogs. I guess with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga "getting along" someone needs to be hating on each other in public, right?!
Well now the arguing is getting downright nasty – and possibly law enforcement will be getting involved.
Real Housewives of New Jersey'sTeresa Giudice is a lot of things…she's a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister (well, some days), a best selling cookbook author, a fashionista, and cocktail maven. But I bet you didn't know she's a comedienne as well!
In her Bravo blog posted today, Teresa discusses how difficult it is to have her entire family turn against her, but in doing so, she makes a hilarious play on Fifty Shades of Grey all while doing what she does best (and I'm not being sarcastic here, for once)–self promotion! The woman can hock her wares like no other, and I wish I had her gumption (although that's about all I'd wish to have from Tre).
Teresa Giudice's friend and co-authorHeather Maclean has become the "invisible Housewife" on Real Housewives of New Jersey. And since Twitter really is the 6th castmember on this show, Heather has taken to tweeting the show and revealing some of the producer machinations that happen behind the scenes. Yummy! I guess after the Posche Fashion Show debacle everyone has learned their lesson to cover their bases!
Last night Heather commented on Teresa allegedly sitting by while Jan trashed Melissa Gorga and accused her of cheating on Poison with her ex-boyfriend. Well, Heather says that what viewers saw was edited to make Teresa look guilty and involved in the setup, when in actuality she left the table! Isn't that always Teresa's MO?
"After this episode, you will clearly see that I have obviously been established as 'the villain' of the season," Kim hints. "I’ll own it proudly! After all, things do just fall into my lap! [;)] " Anything for fame right, Kimmie BePosched?
Oh Real Housewives of New Jersey. I just don't know what to do with you. Like ever. Last night Melissa Gorga was officially accused of cheating by a former BFF who now doesn't like her. And since this is RHONJ some heavy betrayal was involved. Does anyone like Melissa in NJ? What did this girl do to make so many enemies? Did she give a lot of people unwanted sprinkle cookies?
Anyway, there was also talk of a retreat. I need a retreat from this show – am I invited?
Things begin with Wallpaper Wakile having a meeting of the minds in her brand new test kitchen. She's got her mixer all set up in one corner and the entire vast remainder of the industrial kitchen sits unused and empty. Pretty soon Kathy is going to start moving her bed, her dresser, all her clothes, etc in because if there's one things she's realized about ol' test kitchen – it's a great retreat from Richie. And one long overdue.
And speaking of retreats from hubbies, here comes Caroline Manzo. Is Al in the same country as her anymore? Caroline, Jacqueline Laurita, and Rosie the Rampager are meeting to talk about Rosie's big meet-n-drink with Teresa Giudice. Rosie reveals that the pounding on the table severely bruised the cartilage in her hand. Rosie needs serious help. Gross.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast has come a long way since their arrival on the reality TV scene back in 2009. You know, back when they were still dressing like NJ housewives and not pageant contestants. For some, the style transformation has been a positive thing and for others..not so much.
