I need another day in this weekend! I have been in a weird headspace and my body just feels like it is slogging through mud in order to do anything at all. So this I going to be a slow recap night. It took me three days to get the latest RHOA tea up. It’s good. You really should check it out. Any why does Banjo need to go out at precisely 8 pm every night. At least he is regular I guess.
We start with Teresa’s suspect lawyer making a statement to the press outside her house. He has clearly worked himself in to a paid role. Is he the first male FOH? It would seem so. He had more airtime last week than the new fulltime housewives. Everyone pretends to watch this on the news from their phones at home. What we saw was Bravo filming it.
Jacqueline seems to cry. Then she sees the new Lexus SUV with a bow. She says, “Same old Teresa.” Exactly. What kind of idiot does that the second they are out of prison for robbing people? The Joe and Melissa stories are staged and filmed much later than we are supposed to believe. Melissa doesn’t understand that Teresa refused to let her visit because she didn’t want to be seen in her worst moments by an adversary. It’s one of those “Never let them see you cry” sort of things.

Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member, Teresa Giudice along with her sister-in-law, Melissa Gorga, sat down with Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover and guest co-host Dave Karger to discuss the new season of RHONJ recently when Teresa became offended by a question and stormed off. The question had been asked and answered by Teresa on previous interviews, but perhaps it was the poor choice of wording that set her off? Although Teresa was a bit emotional in this interview before things even started.
Dave Karger asks Teresa, “Are you worried that it is the end of your family unit as you know it?” because of the possibility (more like likelihood) that Joe will be deported. Teresa replies, “Next question please? I don’t think that is something you should be asking. ”
At this point you can see that Dave feels bad for upsetting Teresa, but Kit Hoover better prepare for a reign of terror on social media led by the deranged Teresa fans because after Teresa storms off, she is thrilled. Kit high fives a reluctant Dave over her first walk off! Then she asked to go back to the feed to see if Melissa was there and the crew is all laughing at the two empty seats.

Well the time has finally come for the return of the recently released Felon by Bravo to make her joyous return to the ginormous house built from fraudulent funds. To Teresa it all seems like a bad dream, something horrible that happened to her through no fault of her own. We begin with the car ride from the prison. She is driven home by her really interesting celebrity lawyer. He’s been stuck to this family like glue since January of 2015 as if he has no other clients. It looks like we will have to wait for the reuniting to be seen though because filming started and we first have to use the footage that was shot without her.
I am in the minority in that I like Melissa Gorga and Joe. They haven’t been convicted of anything yet, they are not being investigated by the Feds that I know of, and they don’t have any health related storylines. Frankly, that’s about all I can hope for at this point. So I will tolerate the scenes of her opening “her” new boutique. I believe she has invested in that about as much as she invested in that weird garbage truck business with the shady guy who went to jail. Her storyline this season is that Joe doesn’t want Teresa to work.
I liked the scene at the kid’s baseball game. Joe is worried that Teresa won’t want to come to their house for Christmas. He’s also worried that she won’t be able to because of her house arrest. Melissa is worried about Teresa coming because Teresa would not put her on her contact or visitation list. They haven’t had any contact since Teresa went to prison.
Sweet baby Jesus! Joe got fully undressed, took a shower and put on new clothes with cameras on him the entire time.
Not really my store….allegedly…
So it looks like we won’t see the dramatic heart wrenching reunion of Teresa with the family union the third or so episode to give her time to decompress from federal prison.
It will be the Melissa and Joe Gorga show for a bit. And I don’t have a problem with that. But what I do have a problem with is that Jac is shoving her autistic son in front of the cameras within the first ten minutes of episode one.
We all knew Teresa and Joe Giuidice were criminals when they were paying for things on their doorstep with wads of cash. They are paying their debt to society even though they are still flashing the benefits of their criminal activity. Continue reading
Teresa Giudice was unable to keep her smile on during an interview with Mara Schiavocampo this morning. The RHONJ had to take a break just one minute into the interview. Mara began by asking about the girls.
Teresa said, ” “You know, [they] miss their dad, of course, tremendously, just like I do. But you know they’re doing as well as could be expected.”
Then she was asked about Joe. And despite the fact that Teresa has a memorized list of answers for all of these questions that she has rehearse many times, she couldn’t get through her response about Joe being locked up. It was very odd and not like Teresa at all. She started by saying they talk every day and they see each other every week. (Which is the opposite of what was said in this post.) Then she looks up at the ceiling of her living room like she heard a noise or something and then said she was becoming emotional and needed to take a break.
Wait, Joe was cute when they met! #FBF
I continue to be fascinated with Teresa Giudice’s “attorney” and his love of media attention. James Leonard particularly seems to like selling stories to People to answer questions that no one is asking. Today’s breaking story on People is entitled ” The Surprising Reason Teresa Giudice Can’t Visit Her Husband Joe In Prison More Frequently.” Which is a poor title not just because of the unnecessary length but because in fact, Teresa is allowed to visit Joe as frequently as she would like Despite tis fact, Leonard goes into great detail about why Teresa is not visiting more often while claiming that she goes every other weekend.
Here is a partial list of “reasons” why Teresa isn’t visiting more according to Leonard, “Where he is, you get a certain number of points every month and each visit counts as a point. Weekend visits are considered more points,” Leonard explains. “So because he also has his mother and sister coming to visit, and Teresa can’t go during the week because the girls are in school, they’re having to do it every other weekend.”
Except none of this is accurate.
