There are lessons to be learned from Tiger King and the brief explosive reign of Joe Exotic. Live by the code of the jungle, metaphorically die by it too. In the series finale Joe goes down for orchestrating a murder for hire plot to once and for all stop Carole Baskin from stealing his zoo. The zoo Joe does not in fact even own anymore.
Joe caged wild animals and took away their freedoms and finds himself in a cage after being nabbed by the FEDS on what appears to be some trumped up charges. Working behind his back to seize the zoo was a collection of barely contained beasts: Carole Fucking Baskin, Jeff Lowe, and Joe’s former friend “businessman,” James Garretson.
There is no more humanity left in Joe Exotic, as he is completely ruled by his animal instincts to self-preserve.
The fifth episode of Tiger King serves as a lesson that nothing good comes from too much crazy in one place. Not only did some of this behavior seem normalized, but it was also was encouraged. Joe Exotic dives into politics, while suffering personal tragedy. The dynamics of the park also begin to change.
Jeff Lowe has managed to bamboozle Joe into giving him ownership of his zoo. With new management, major changes begin to take place. Jeff immediately fires half of the staff and insults them on their way out of the door. One of the most significant changes is the entrance of his associate, Allen Glover, who was hired as a handy man for the zoo. This won’t seem significant this episode, but just keep Allen’s name in the back of your mind.
Hey there cool cats and kittens, Mary here to describe to you in great furry detail how totally fucked up and deranged Tiger King is.
First things first, we can all agree that Carole Baskin made minced tiger food, all organic (unless Don Lewis smoked) out of hubby no 2. Howard Baskin, who is hubby no 3, better stay tightly tethered to her pussy patrol — or else. Accidents around big cats are a regular thing. Just ask Joe Exotic who was trying to film a very enlightening reality show about living on the edge of nature.
Before Joe decided to run for president, he was trying to become a reality star. Joe running for president is only marginally less bizarre than Donald Trump running for president. As far as exotic, one has tigers and gay/straight husbands who are only using him for his
tigers money. The other has gold toilets and wives who are only using him for his money. Both have thrones. Although Joe’s is in the middle of an Oklahoma mud pit surrounded by chain link cages. Joe has Carole; Donald has Hillary. And Joe is ready to take on the world! The episode opens with his ‘hit’ country single “Bring It On” — one of his many odes to despising Carole. Fucking. Baskin.
I cannot believe we’re already to the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion! 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 Gorga Olympics. 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.
No one is at all surprised by the seating arrangement at the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 9 Reunion. Teresa Giudice is sitting with
her soldiers Dolores Catania and Jennifer Aydin. On the opposite couch, Margaret Josephs is joined by Melissa Gorga and Jackie Goldschneider, duh.
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.
Margaret Josephs instantly resonated with viewers during her first season on Real Housewives of New Jersey. The fans weren’t the only people that she won over. Margaret formed a very close friendship with Danielle Staub.
They really had each other’s backs, but that’s not the case these days. Margaret did what she could to be the bridesmaid and friend. She put up with Danielle’s bridezilla demands and came through on all of her requests. However, nothing was good enough for Danielle and her attitude just kept getting worse. Sadly enough, there was so much drama surrounding a wedding for a couple that broke up shortly after they got married.
Is Real Housewives of New Jersey experiencing a case of déjà vu? So far in Season 9, fans have once again witnessed family tension explode between Melissa Gorga, her sister-in-law Teresa Giudice, and her husband (and Teresa’s brother) Joe Gorga. People- can’t we all just get along? Obviously not, or it would be a boring show.
The family pulled together and buried old grievances when Teresa served her 11-month prison sentence for fraud. Now her husband, Joe Giudice, is serving his prison sentence and faces deportation to Italy when he is released in March of 2019.
For the 9525025252524638th time, Real Housewives of New Jersey has reverted to the Teresa Giudice vs. Melissa Gorga Show. This means that everyone is picking sides, including the new Housewives.
Jackie Goldschneider has come off the bench for #TeamMelissa. Meanwhile, Jennifer Aydin is firmly on Teresa’s side. Interestingly enough, they both made their Watch What Happens Live debuts during yesterday’s episode.
