Last night was the pre-finale for Real Housewives Of New Jersey. Since Jacqueline Laurita had laryngitis, she let Milinia do all the talking for her. Finally because at least Milania’s outbursts make a lot more sense! A silent Jacq is still deadly though… thank be the powers of the smart phone put into dumb hands.
Oh that Milania, I don’t care – I love her. Teresa Giudice acknowledges that Milania is not adjusting well to Juicy being “away.” And why should she? On Juicy’s first day in the slammer, Joe,Melissa Gorga, and the kids come over with sprinkle cookies Chinese food to check in on Teresa and the girls. They find Milania mouthing off all kinds of projecting, and Teresa is in a tailspin.
I was honestly a little offended that Jacqueline and any Housewife not named Teresa were so prominently featured during such a crucial episode, but I really couldn’t stomach it when Jacqueline was talking about how she was so upset seeing Joe and Teresa hug before he left. It didn’t seem authentic and it’s hard to follow her train of thought: does she love Teresa or hate her? I get that life isn’t that black and white, but it’s just such two extremes going from wanting to be BFF’s to constantly trashing her. And well, Teresa isn’t here for it.
I had high hopes for Siggy Flicker when she first appeared on Real Housewives of New Jersey wrapped up in bandages from her face lift, sipping lobster bisque from a straw. That moment set the bar pretty high in my eyes. And apparently that bar was a little too high since (in my opinion) Siggy has zero involvement in any of the show’s story lines and is just there to promote being a “relationship expert” by fixing the trouble between the ladies.
I don’t blame her since so many women have given their careers a boost from being on these shows, but I just wish that she provided some sort of juicy story line. I feel like such a hater, but I’m just speaking the truth, I want more from my RHONJ ladies.
Jacqueline claims she “can’t remember” the last episode, adding, “So I’m just going to share my thoughts on Melissa Gorga because…why not?” She says Melissa is a “two-faced trouble making RAT!” who lies. A lot. “The list is a mile long. It’s insane. I will save some of her lies in my back pocket for a later time.”
It was so heartbreaking watching Teresa Giudice and her four daughters praying in that bed after Joe Giudice went into prison. No matter how you feel about the Giudices and their illegal activities, you have to admit that it was an emotional episode – or you just have no soul, I don’t know. Flash forward to the present time, Tre shared an update on Joe and talked about celebrating her seventeenth wedding anniversary with her husband behind bars and how he is asking John Legend to get involved.
Real Housewives of New Jersey viewers will never forget Teresa Giudice yelling “prostitution whore” and flipping a table in response to Danielle Staub during the show’s first season. They brawled at a country club and went tit for tat at the reunion. And now the two biggest personalities in the show’s history were spotted doing yoga together. Wait. What?
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.”
