Last night begins with a continuation of Andy’s conversation with Teresa in which she admits that she won’t move her family to Italy if husband Joe Giudice is deported. She hedges around the word “divorce” but she won’t endure a long distance marriage. Her friends seem both shocked and sad at this admission. Tre explains that she and Joe have spoken about what will happen, and they agree that they should go their separate ways if he is no longer in the country. Teresa didn’t share this news with any of her friends, but Melissa isn’t surprised–she wants her sister-in-law to be happy, and she can’t imagine having to make that decision.
Andy also asks Teresa if she’s been faithful this whole time Joe has been in jail. Unfortunately (for the viewers), this was taped before those photos came out. You know the photos of Teresa holding hands with a much younger man. The guy that was supposedly just “helping her to the car” in Miami.
Last night was the second installment of The Teresa ShowReal Housewives of New Jersey. Before Teresa Giudice can throw Andy Cohen’s cue cards at Jackie Goldschneider, Jackie reminds Teresa that she is on parole. The women shriek back and forth about which one is more obsessed with the other. When Andy is finally able to get in a word, he questions Jackie about the article she wrote about Jennifer Aydin’s kids. Not surprisingly, this causes Jennifer to transform into a banshee who demands THE TRUTH! Jackie tries to defend herself but admits that she should have given Jennifer a head’s up before it was published. A viewer calls the article complimentary and wonders if Jennifer even read it. Jennifer did read it, and she didn’t appreciate the critique of her parenting. That said, had she known it was coming, she wouldn’t have been as angry.
A fan questions why it’s okay for Dolores Catania to speak for Teresa, but it’s not okay when Jackie sticks up for Melissa Gorga. Dolores clarifies that she is just trying to share Teresa’s viewpoint in a quieter different way. Regarding the entire “control your husband” conversation, Teresa changes her tune and asserts that she only meant Melissa could persuade Joe Gorga to spend more time with Nonno.
Instead, Joe Gorga joins the Housewives to watch his wife Melissa Gorga fight with his sister Teresa Giudice. Maybe this will include the moment from the reunion trailer when Joe asked Teresa if she’s using a vibrator. You know, just a normal sibling moment.
The reunion for Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 has just begun airing, and the drama shows no sign of slowing down. Not only that, but it looked like a glitter factory exploded in that room. The gowns and spray tans, were over the top. Teresa Giudice, the OG of RHONJ, was in a fiery mood, and she wasted no time in blasting newbie Jackie Goldschneider for being “a stalker.” Otherwise known as a fan. A photo together from a book signing? Run for the hills, Teresa!
Teresa also jabbed Jackie about her eating disorder by asking if Jackie had something to eat before the reunion. Then Jennifer Aydin hopped in to clarify that Teresa meant to say “thirsty.” And Dolores Catania, loyal soldier that she is, was not a fan of the way Jackie questions Teresa about how Teresa feels about her fans. Of course, Jennifer is still livid about the article that Jackie wrote about her palatial home and whether Jennifer spoils her children. (Spoiler alert: she does). Jennifer even gifted Jackie with a Turkish dagger to stab her in the back.
Yesterday had to be such an awkward day for Melissa Gorga to do press. Of course, promoting a show about arguing with family and friends has to be uncomfortable in general. Not only that, but those photos of Teresa Giudice holding hands with a 26-year-old random just hit the internet.
I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jerseyreunion! Last night’s first installment of the ladies’ sit down with Andy Cohen was reality gold…and pewter and bronze and silver. Their gowns were like a medal ceremony in the Envy by Melissa GorgaOlympics. Also, whoever told Jackie Goldscheider that the attire was cleavage optional is clearly getting the last laugh. But at least Jackie’s least likely to have a wardrobe malfunction when being screamed at by the first eight seasons’ Teresa Giudice who throws tables punches instead of rolling with them. Shockingly, Jennifer Aydin has her girls under wraps as well, although she does arrive in a Rocky-style blinged-out boxing robe. Of course, she does.
Andy welcomes the newbies before questioning Teresa about Joe Giudice’s impending deportation. Teresa is clearly upset, but they table the discussion for later in the reunion. He continues schmoozing the RHONJ cast before complimenting Margaret Josephs’ facelift. He even gets Dolores Catania to admit to butt implants with her own fat. Jackie shares she had a tummy tuck after giving birth to two sets of twins. Margaret also reveals that she and husband Joe Beningo shower together every morning.
However, Melissa had to be jealous at least a little surprised that Margaret got the seat next to Andy Cohen. Then again, Melissa doesn’t have as many battles to fight this season. Margaret had it out with Jennifer, Teresa, and Danielle Staub, who will not appear on Part 1. Meanwhile, Melissa promoted her own store and took a genetic test to match with a “sister” that does not actually exist may or may not exist.
