When I think about Jacqueline Laurita’s daughter Ashlee Holmes, a few things come to mind. First off, I get secondhand embarrassment for how she mistreated her mother back in her teenage years. Nevertheless, it seems like she’s grown up a great deal. Or at least I hope so. Then, I think about her changing her name from “Ashley” to “Ashlee,” wondering if that was inspired by Ashlee Simpson.
But, the standout memory was that Season 2 country club brawl on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Teresa Giudice famously told Danielle Staub not to call her “honey.” Jacqueline screamed about reading Danielle’s court records. And, it all came to climax when Ashlee pulled on Danielle’s extensions. Danielle moved forward with legal action. She even claimed that Ashlee typing the word ” bye” on Facebook was a threat. Danielle actually brought a mannequin head with extension to the RHONJ Season 2 reunion to reenact the incident. Now, Jacqueline is drawing some parallels between that iconic hair-pulling incident and the Season 10 scene when Danielle appears to do the same thing to Margaret Josephs.
Congratulations! We’ve survived the the final chapter of
the Teresa Giudice Show Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion, although newbies Jennifer Aydin and Jackie Goldscheider definitely made sure their voices were heard. In the ladies fight for relevancy, they were faced with even more competition last night in the form of Danielle Staub and the extra wives husbands of the Garden State. Let’s be honest…these men bring just as much drama as their spray-tanned counterparts, and that is no small feat! Joe Gorga is reveling his second installment of the RHONJ reunion, having been invited early by Andy Cohen to attempt peace talks between his sister and his wife Melissa Gorga. Up to this point, both Margaret Josephs and Dolores Catania have been relatively quiet. I did preface that with relatively… 🙂
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.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion ended with Andy Cohen asking Teresa Giudice about the future of her relationship with Joe Giudice. If he does end up getting deported after prison, will Teresa stick with him? Or is she not down to have a long distance relationship with someone living in Italy.
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 Show Real 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.
Part 2 of the Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion is tonight. Will we unearth some major revelations? Probably not. Most likely, Andy Cohen is saving those Joe Giudice deportation questions until the final reunion installment.
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 two-season peace between Melissa Gorga and Teresa Giudice has come to an end. During the Real Housewives of New Jersey cast trip, Melissa yelled, “This one has you going in circles” at Teresa. Of course, “this one” that she was referring to is none other than Danielle Staub. The fact that these two managed to become
allies best friends after table flipping and a chase through a country club is mindblowing to fans.
Not only that, but Danielle’s bridezilla antics and below the belt insults aimed at Margaret Josephs were tough to support. Well, tough for everyone except Teresa. Nowadays, Danielle can do no wrong in Teresa’s eyes. And vice versa.
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.
