WWHL With Rita Wilson And Jacqueline Laurita

WWHL rita jac

I’m irritated as hell by that episode of RHONJ. I feel like I almost have to defend Jim Marchese. Sure he was being a little bitch but he sent Bobby into the bathroom to hide for the whole episode?

I may not say much about this episode. But I wanted to give you guys a place to comment.

Andy points that the new Wakile house has a turret as do most of the RHONJ homes. This seems to be a real housewives thing. Chateau Sheree’s is pretty much all turrets are not many rooms in the whole monstrosity that are not circular.  And Kim Zolciak’s house is a turret fest as well. Clearly these people have never tried to decorate a round room. It’s a PITA.  One round room is fine. 17 round rooms is a problem. See my walk thru of Chateau Sheree here.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap Gators and Pussy Boys

RHONJ S6 CastLast week’s RHONJ episode was one of my favorites. I loved the girls in Florida. Everything was light up until the last few minutes. Today? The shit hits the fan.

The girls go to the alligator farm and Dina falls in love with a tailless alligator because she is obsessed with defective animals. The girls race in swamp boats and go looking at gators. The girls seem to be having a blast. But I’m a died in the wool gator hater and I don’t like gators of any species.

Time for another PR shot of future prisoner 983-0939 spending quality mother time with her daughter, Audriana  who is of course coloring pictures of mommy and Daddy. Juicy shows up to let us know that Chris Laurita wants to make up with Juicy over a bottle of wine. Teresa reads a text from Jacqueline and cries in her talking heads. Teresa is still skeptical about getting together with Jacqueline. She’s not over all the trash that Jac talked about Joe at the reunion. Joe helps Tre with her coloring. Seriously.

I am fast forwarding through the exploitation of Nicholas. Sorry.

Wait, is that Kevin Jonas who is the builder for the Wakile house? WTF? I think he actually does have a construction business but I didn’t think he was so hands on. I think Kevin built his huge home he lives in. Rosie arrives and explains that she is done with her fake Bravo girlfriend.  That chick or someone pretending to be her was shopping around a story about how she was roped in to pretending to be Rosie’s girlfriend. I’m not really interested enough to care. Continue reading

Court Status Updates for Bravo Personalities

What was wrong with peach?

This is Phaedra’s house.

It’s time for a round-up of several cases involving Bravo personalities… We may even have a few more charges coming for some new ones! Um Yay?  This is really starting to bore me actually.

From Atlanta:

Yes, there was a trial date set for last week in Phaedra’s case against Angela Stanton.  And no it didn’t happen. As much as you and I would love for there to be a trial, that was never Phaedra’s intention. This is the second time a date has been set and the second time a flurry of motions have been exchanged by the attorneys on both sides.  Eventually, Phaedra will get tired of this game and a settlement will be reached. I have a feeling Phaedra will not like the settlement.

In other Phaedra news, she is busy whitewashing things. Literally. Phaedra’s peach house was completely repainted white (with gray trim) last week. She’s still working on getting the new gate installed. That project seems to have stalled. A white stucco(ish) house is not really a grand idea in Georgia. You may have heard of our red Georgia clay. It manages to find its way onto all sorts of things. Besides, I really liked the peach color.

Anyway, Phaedra is off on a two state book tour. Because, apparently, casual followers of the show still buy in to the whole “southern belle” routine. Her fans were never very bright to start with… Continue reading

Another Giudice Property To Be Sold on Courthouse Steps

RHONJ Frank Giudice Home

If everything goes according to plan, next Thursday, Joe and Teresa will be getting sentenced for their fraud crimes in a New Jersey courtroom. That is enough to ruin someone’s week, but sadly for Joe he has another big problem to deal with next week. His mother, Filomena has lost her home. It will be sold on the courthouse steps next Tuesday for failure to pay taxes, as well as failing to pay water and sewer bills. That’s just one less place the girls can go to live if both parents are sent off to college.

There appears to be about $600,000 in liens and mortgage due on the property. That’s odd since the selling price was $380,000 in 2002.  Zillow estimates the property to be worth around $705,000. The house went on and off the market in 2012 and 2013 for $1.5 million and then $1.25 million with no interested buyers. Juicy’s brother needs to make home for his mama and four nieces I suppose.

Click through for the public notice. Thanks to whoever sent me this, I’m sorry that I already deleted the email and forgot who sent it. :) Continue reading

Mini RHONJ Blog Round-up

RHONJ S6 CastIt’s slim pickings on the RHONJ Bravo Blogs this week. Dina explains that she felt she really needed to tell the twins the rumor, but when Teressa didn’t want to hear it, she decided not to. Kathy says she has not moved into her house yet. Tre’s blog was short and sweet saying only that she appreciates the support and is very busy getting ready for college life.  Dina says she does cook but since she doesn’t eat meat of gluten her options are limited. She made the kale salad with fruit. Click through for a few more snippets. There is even one from Jacqueline… Continue reading

Joe Giudice Back In Jersey Court Today

RHONJ JOE TITWell, if it’s a day that ends in ‘y’ someone connected to the Real Housewives of New Jersey is in court. Today it Joe Giudice’s day.  Nearly three years after Joe was arrested for presenting false paperwork (his brother’s marriage license and birth certificate) to the DMV to get a driver’s license despite being suspended for a DUI, the case is finally going to be resolved.  Say what you will about the Giudice’s but one thing they do well is select lawyer’s. Joe’s lawyer , Miles Feinstein, has been pushing this case back ever since the federal indictments came down in an attempt to get the pretrial hearing set after the sentencing in the federal case. Had he allowed Joe to be convicted prior to sentencing that conviction would have increased his federal time according to the handy dandy little sentencing chart the fed use.

So today it court we learned two things. First, the federal sentencing date of October 2 appears to be “firm.”  Based on the glacial pace we have seen the wheels of justice turn in federal cases in Jersey so far, I would not hold my breath but today everyone is pretending to be very confident in that date. So the pre trial hearing was set for October 15th.  YAY! Joe will finally be held accountable for his crime after three years of wasting time and money in Superior Court! Whatever will his sentence be? Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Time For the Fake Jacqueline Scenes

RHONJ S6 CastIf you recall, when reports of Jacqueline Laurita returning to RHONJ came out, I told you guys it absolutely didn’t happen on August 8th.  My source explained that filming had long been completed and the stories were false.  Then a month later, there she was on the Bravo Site previews and I was gob smacked as was my source. I was then informed that in post production it was decided that the new people were bombing and unlikable so they needed for find someone to bring back. Okay, I can see that, but Jacqueline? Do they really think she is a fan favorite? I guess Caroline turned them down. Anyway, Jac had come back to film a week or two before I reached out to my source, in July pretending it was winter time. I’m guessing we won’t see any outdoor scenes tonight. This is one of the more ridiculous things that Bravo has done.

Sidenote: It looks like the reunion will be filming at the end of the week, on Friday if I recall correctly. That’s less than a week before Teresa’s sentencing. Look for her to be heavily sedated.

On with the show…

The girls are all head off to Boca Raton. How is that just a two-hour flight? Why am I not going there? The ladies are flying down by themselves and have all the usual luggage struggles. I guess that Teresa and Joe were not allowed to leave the state. The ladies are glad that Amber isn’t coming. The ladies arrive at a beautiful home to relax and bask in the sun.

Cut to New Jersey where it is snowy and dreary. We are shown a house with a for sale sign advertising a property with a pool and a spa. Teresa and Gia are looking for a place to move. Teresa says she is no longer skeeved by looking at other people’s houses. She is not materialistic anymore, y’all. Her priorities have shifted. Ah, nothing like a pre-sentencing burst of morality and frugality. The house Teresa and Gia are looking at is still beyond their means. What happens when she goes to prison will someone move into the house to tend the girls for those two months or so? Is this simply so Teresa can say she has a rental where she can do her house arrest? There is no way anyone would give her a loan, except for maybe the cocktail weenie if he really is still employed in the mortgage industry. The house is nearly 9,00o square feet. He is talking to her about property taxes. There is no way Teresa can buy a house in New Jersey. I just don’t believe that is possible this is scripted shit. The list price is $1.4 million.

Oh Gawd. Here we go with the cancer story. We are about to miraculously find out that everything is fine and the shit stirrers will be able to go to Florida after all. It’s a scripted miracle! Continue reading

Amber’s Ghostwriter is Trying to Hard, Or Not Trying Hard Enough

I have bird shit on my stupid face. Because Bravo knows my story.

I have bird shit on my stupid face. Because Bravo knows my story.

Amber’s ghost writer is having a REALLY hard time. He’s new and this is his first blog trying to be Amber.  But this is worse than the  Alice in Wonderland  Heather Mcwhatshername wrote for Teresa.

Here is “Amber’s” opening 2 paragraphs:

“Man is made of such a seemly shape, that friend or foe is not discerned by face; then hard it is the wickeds’ wiles to scape, since that the bad to mask with honest grace.” Geoffrey Whitney

If Whitney could reach into my soul and pull out exactly what is there, he would have used these words. I don’t know who to trust — who is my friend, who is my enemy, what are everyone’s intentions? This is a truly awful feeling that, clearly, many have felt throughout history based on so many literary works on the subject. What is the driving force behind our actions? How do we come to our perceptions of situations? It all can be profoundly attributed to the interactions between genetics, social factors, and environment. We take from our experience good attributes as well as negative attributes such as, weakness, insecurity, jealous, hatred, and even a lack of empathy. 

It takes a bit of talent to ghost write for someone. You can’t correct everything and you can never, ever wander off into your bloviated voice. Especially when that voice is arrogant, bloviated, I am a lawyer who can’t practice law due to moral turpitude voice.

“Another reason for my overly sensitive reactions to Teresa is that I am familiar with these types of cases due to Jim’s line of work.”

I’m just going to let that sit there with you for a minute. Let’s reflect on Jim’s line of work. He is BANNED from practicing work as a montage broker for 20 year in the state of Washington.

He next job in pharmaceuticals ended as a whistleblower  where the Judge had many harsh things to say about him. So Jim is familiar with fraud. And Amber has been DEFENDING HIM against his cancer company colleagues since shortly after they married when the prosecution implied and his colleagues argued that Jim masterminded the fraud he blew the whistle on, and that the  fraud had to do with CANCER MEDICATION.

The judge ended up giving him the lowest payout he could at over a million in snitching fees… and a chastisement in the ruling. It’s all online.

I need all these bobbie pins to pin my real hair. Please don't notice.

I need all these bobbie pins to pin my real hair. Please don’t notice.

Amber goes on to talk about cancer “I remember the day like it was yesterday. I had just put my 6-month-old and 18-month-old down for a nap, the older guys were in school. My doctor called and I was alone. “

I wish all of this bullshit drama you are bringing on the show for more money… your fake scenes and your shitty soul, would get reoccurrence. And someone with the integrity of your husband would sell you a shitty pill that doesn’t work for you at all. But we all know you are faking it and full of shit.

And for that. YOU SUCK.  On behalf of everyone I know that deals with cancer every fucking day. Karma is a bitch. When you marry someone who got rich off  frauding  cancer patients. You reap what you sow you cunt.

And next week you are going to fake a cancer scare for the GODDAMN  CAMERAS?

Bite me. No one cares if you live or die.

Why is TeRESA Mad at Teresa and Amber?

RHONJbagelhead

I really don’t understand the RHONJ Bravo Blogs this week. The twins seem to be mad a Teresa and Amber. This seems off to me. They didn’t ask Victoria Gotti to tell them the crazy rumor about Rino and his mother- in-law. I had trouble understanding Nicole’s blog at all. I’m posting an excerpt from Teresa Aprea’s blog below.  As of now at least, Teresa and Amber are keeping the rumor fairly quiet. Teresa told Dina and Amber told Jim, but I don’t think that was necessarily wrong. Now when Jim just blurts it out on the trip in front of the whole group, that is outrageous.

Am I just looking at this wrong? Please explain to me the basis of Teresa bring mad at Teresa and Amber. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: There Will Be Bloodwork

RHONJ S6 CastI’m not sure I can handle Jacqueline exploiting her kid and Amber’s cancer storyline ramping up all in one episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. UGH.

We start with the Giudice family waking up in the house that fraud built. Teresa is trying to keep things as normal as possible right up until she and Joe head off for college. Am I the only one that forgets that Gabriella even exists?  Teresa drives the kids to school in her PJs. Gia tells her mom she is proud of her for being strong throughout her trial.

I literally forgot I was supposed to be blogging during this scene with Dina. So boring.

Joe Gorga doesn’t seem to be having the easiest time dealing with his sister going to the big house.

Rino’s scene where he discusses his enlarged prostate and upcoming colonoscopy was made even more disturbing when he donned a pair of underpants with a cock sock which he twirled on national television.

Is this episode over yet? Continue reading

Welcome To Amber’s Mind…

RHONJ Amber open mouth

There were not many Bravo blogs from the Real Housewives of New Jersey this week. Teresa just thanked everyone for their support. Melissa laughed about Amber’s phone call.  And Dina warned us that Scary Island pales in comparison to what we are about to witness in Florida. The twins didn’t put up anything. at all. And then, there is Amber. Amber is about to play the cancer card AGAIN to explain away her ridiculous phone call to Teresa.

OK, OK, OK, on to my most annoying scene to date — my total meltdown when I called Teresa! OH MY Lord! I seriously was annoying to watch, I cannot imagine what you all were thinking. I remember that day, and I can assure you, I was having a very rough and emotional day. I cannot share exactly what was going on yet, but I was going through a very difficult time. I think it just all hit me at once, and I was displacing my fears and anxieties onto Teresa. Not that I do not care for her or her family, I truly do. That was absolutely not insincere; I was emotional for personal reasons and just could not deal. I do wish though that Gia, a 13 year old child, could have been asked to leave the room as her mother talked to both me and Melissa. I guess we have very different parenting styles. In my opinion, Gia should not hear adult conversations. Regardless what you think of my breakdown, I certainly do not give a crap about what she was wearing to court, I am thinking only of her children. Honestly, I wish I was not so empathetic to other sometimes; I take on other people’s heartaches all of the time, and it greatly affects me. 

Clearly, she is implying that her cancer scare that happens on an upcoming episode was the reason for her meltdown. It also really chapped her hide to see Gia laughing at her. Gia is a teenager living in the house with two people preparing for jail. She’s well aware of what is going on. Amber’s thought that Gia should be banished from the kitchen is ridiculous. She was part of the scene. Continue reading

Teresa and Joe Selling the House? That’s Funny!

RHONJ Sisters-in-Law Make Top Ten List

UPDATE: The shore house is on the market too. Looks like time for liquidation! Click here for shore house listing info.

Once again bizarre rumors are floating around on sites that should know better.  Let’s review the initial charges against the Giudices. Counts 2-6 are for bank fraud.  The Giudices took out millions of dollars mortgages on all of their properties. They all have minimal equity and are mortgaged well above the actual property.  In order for the Giudices to sell their current residence, they must get a price that covers all of the mortgages that currently exist on the property. Since those mortgages exceed the market value of the house, they would have to find an idiot of a buyer. Or they could accept a reasonable offer and pay off the remainder of the mortgage themselves. The Giudices are not exactly cash flush at the moment. They have restitution and IRS bills and lawyer bills that must be paid before anything else. There is no benefit to the Giudices selling the house rather than just walking away from it and letting the bank take it. There is nothing to stop them from listing the house for nearly $4 million if they want to but there is no buyer out there at that price. Continue reading
