Last night on Real Housewives of New Jersey it was another round of tit-for-tat over the most mundane crap imaginable. I mean, maybe it's not mundane if it's your family, but after 2.5 seasons of the storyline that never ends, I think we're all a bit tired of the Gorgadice family feud. If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over but expecting different results, I think we can all officially declare the Gorgadices "insane". Right, Dr. Jacqueline Laurita, wino-behavioral specialist!
Things begin – oh who really cares where they begin because this show is like a loop everything ends and begins in the same exact spot so that you never know which episode is which and what exactly happened. Let's start with Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga rehashing birthday party-gate to their respective spouses while their kids all listen nearby.
Melissa is flipping some pancakes and Poison is deciding if they'll liquefy in his intestines so we all have to hear about his explosive diarrhea again, then she tells him something else vomit-inducing; that Teresa and Kim D (Teresa's soldier in the hideous hair extension army) like attacked her at Gia's party. And it was like sooooo terrible, and now she has to go into witness protection, and she did so visit her FIL in the hospital for like hours and hours and hours except she was in the lobby on twitter and reading magazines so he didn't actually see her. Meanwhile Antonia's just hanging out in the background.
In light of several episodes exposing Teresa's kids as seemingly wild and overly exposed to family drama, the Real Housewives of New Jersey star is angry that she is being portrayed as a 'bad mom'.
"Teresa is afraid that she’s being shown in a bad light, especially in her interactions with her children," a source reveals to RadarOnline. "Teresa is flipping out. She is a good mom and she’s worried about how she’s starting to look when she asks her kids about family drama."
Our favorite reality TV stars can't get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here's a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
The RHONJ couple attended a meet 'n greet book event in Coral Gables to sign copies of 'Fabulicious On The Grill'. Fans have been sharing photos of their encounter on Twitter. The Giudices even hung out and had a beer with some of them. Tonight Tre heads over to the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale at 7pm.
We'll be bringing you our regular Sunday night preview ahead of the show, but we wanted to share some inside info about what we can expect from the new episode. We're impatient and hate to hold out on ya, what can we say?

You know, I'll say one thing about the raging feud between Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga…at least the ladies aren't petty. When they argue, their beef has actual substance which makes it a little easier to relate to and understand. I mean, if they were bickering about hospital visitation timelines give or take thirty-two hours or gym turf as if they were the Sharks and Jets, I doubt I'd be able to keep watching Real Housewives of New Jersey. I'm sure y'all feel the same! 😉
After Teresaexplained herself in her Bravo blog, Melissa gets a turn. We're all for an equal opportunity snarkfest here at RT! In her blog, Melissa explains that she can't remember her days of the week while adding that her husband's parents weren't upset about how long it took for her to visit her ICU ridden father-in-law.
I believe Melissa when she says they were happy for a visit and not concerned about when it actually happened. However, do I think she should have made her best efforts to get there sooner? Yes. I also think that Teresa beating the visitation timeline to death is as eye-roll worthy as a frazzled Melissa lying about when she actually went. But hey, at least it's entertaining! Right? It is, right…?
This week's episode focused on whether or not Melissa made an effort to visit her FIL while he was in the ICU. And who has ownership of a strip mall gym and its smoothie bar. Yay for Jersey gym-gate! #sarcasm
Of course what we saw on the surface was very different from what actually occurred behind the scenes (as is always the case with RHONJ!). Reality Tea's source shares some EXCLUSIVE information about what was really happening during filming – and why Melissa seemed to have trouble identifying when she visited her FIL!
I am not going to say anything negative about her children (or anyone's for that matter), as I think the girls are equally adorable and hilarious. G-to-the-I-A may be the most mature person on the entire show. It's been fun to watch her grow up into such a sweet young lady. That said, Wendy Williams has no qualms about talking smack about Teresa's kids. Yikes!
Teresa also addresses her fans on all things family and loyalty and respect and lather, rinse, repeat. Let's get some new material please!
Jennifer shares RHONJ sought her out after people in her neighborhood suggested her for the show. She met with them a few times but then found out she was pregnant. Jennifer says things weren't good in her marriage at the time, so she told the NJ people she was no longer interested. Shortly after that they reached out and offered her an episode of Pregnant in Heels.
On the Melissa Gorgahouse showing disaster on the second episode: "I actually brought two clients and my assistant who showed the other client the house while I took Misa around". Jennifer laughs and says she can't believe Melissa even let them film in that room. "If you knew the sink was broken and you knew the water wasn't working and knew there was no shower curtain or glass for the shower, why in the hell would you even allow it?"
