Tonight on RHONJ we actually get to the Vermont trip. We probably won’t get to the part that gets Robyn kicked off the show, and losing her housewife spot tonight. I imagine this trip will be strung out for three episodes. Because everyone was talking about it right after it happened. It’s a couples trip, but Juicy can’t leave the state.
Jac stops by to see Kim D. Siggy shows up to shop also. Kim D. tells the ladies that the guy, Derek, that works at Envy for Melissa is the guy who sold the video of Teresa selling her books for cash that she allegedly was not reporting. He is being accused of selling stories about Teresa to tabloids this season. That would not surprise me. Now we see how Jac manages to piss everyone off and nearly get kicked out of the cast while in Stowe. I can’t believe they are only four hours from Stowe and have never been there. I once took an old bus to Stowe from Atlanta with a bunch of crazy college friends. It was fun. The driver owned the bus to shuttle river rafters. We stopped for booze and potty breaks like twice an hour. It was a very long trip.
Did we know that Chris and Teresa went on a date once? Siggy and Jac talk about Kathy and Rosie and saying they are glad the door is open. Teresa says the door is not open and they are done. Robyn can’t stand Rosie. Robyn and Rosie used to be friends and they had a big falling out. Rosie won’t speak to her. Jac really doesn’t like Robyn. Jac and Melissa get into it on the bus as well. Melissa tells Jac if she wants to tell Kathy and Rosie the door is closed, more power to her. Jac doesn’t know when to shut up. Why is there so much hysterical screaming. Teresa says, “I just want to focus on Teresa Giudice and no one else.” That may be the first true thing Teresa has said.
Apparently, it was an eight-hour drive. Still worth it for Stowe. It’s beautiful and the people there are amazing. For some reason all the women, who packed enough clothes for three weeks decide to all go to dinner with their white hotel bathrobes over their clothes. Why?
The girls, still in their bathrobes head outside to the fire pit. The first topic to come up is Derek, the 21-year-old guy with no experience managing Envy despite selling stories to the tabloids. Melissa says she trusts him. She wants to go inside because they are outside in winter in Vermont in bath robes.
Robyn, Christina, Jac and Siggy stay out by the fire. Chris and Joe walk out and see the arguing. Chris says “Patterson (Dolores) is out there so I’m not worried about it.” And they go back inside where it is warm like normal people. Robyn and Teresa are having a major fight about why they don’t like each other. I am not following it. Robyn asks someone to go get Teresa. Jac says that Robyn is just one of Teresa’s soldiers and she doesn’t know why she needs her to come outside. Robyn says, “You calling me a soldier makes me just want to rage on your ass!” Jac screams back mockingly, “Do it! Rage on my ass!” Then they both start screaming “Shut the fuck up!” at each other.
I don’t think this is Robyn’s first scene and she should know better than this. Jacqueline gets up and goes to sit on Robyn’s lap and has to be pulled off by numerous people. It’s a screechfest. Robyn makes a lot of threats but no one comes to blows. Robyn and Christina make it 24 hours before being thrown out by production.
Sidenote: Milania makes perfect pancakes. And she is extremely mouthy with her father.
Time for dog sledding. That morning Jac and Chris refuse to get out of bed for filming. We gets nasty talking heads from Teresa who did not witness the altercation blaming everything on Jac and saying she is playing the victim. I have a feeling that confessional is about the fight that gets Robyn kicked off that I believe she will witness. At breakfast they have a “chef” in the kitchen that is serving them food in styrofoam containers. STYROFOAM! Don’t get me started. There is hardly any snow in Stowe. It was March so I guess it was kind of late in the season.
Dog sledding looked like lots of fun. Jac texted Dolores that there was nothing wrong, she’s just spending quality time with her husband. The others go for a fall or ten on the bunny slope. How is it possible none of them know how to ski? Also why are Teresa and Melissa suddenly so anti Jac now? Melissa was just pushing for Jac to be let back into the fold. what happened to that? Teresa’s confessionals were all super vicious toward Jac. I’m not surprised Teresa turned on her, it just seems so sudden. Is it really all about the Kathy and Rosie thing?
Jac wants to go back to Jersey with Chris who has to head back early. Dolores and Siggy are not happy that Jac is leaving them alone with Teresa, Melissa and the fairly hostile Robyn and her wife. Will those two jump ship when Jac is exiled by Melissa and Teresa for the rest of the season?
Dolores and Siggy approach Jac with an idea. They say it is not good for Teresa to be around someone as violent and unpredictable as Robyn. They want to send Robyn and Christina home and keep Jac there. Dolores is going to ask Melissa to ask send Robyn and Christina home.
Next week: The fight we have been hearing about for six months goes down.
