Real Housewives of New Jersey: Cutting The Cancer Out

rhonj-rosie

 

Siggy and Jacqueline meet with Rosie to recap the last episode. Short version, Siggy’s son got his driver’s license (and a new SUV)  and Rosie says she was hoping to work things out with Teresa but she doesn’t seem receptive. I am sick of Siggy acting like she knows what she is talking about when it comes to Teresa. When she was on WWHL with Caroline last week I sort of lost all interest in her.

I am thoroughly disgusted that I am apparently going to be team Jacqueline all season. I’m pretty sure she and her entire family have me blocked for hating on her so much.  But that was four years ago. When she is not exploiting her children and blaming all of her problems on them, she’s kind of a decent person.

Jorga seems to be supporting his sister in the Teresa war on Kathy and Rosie. They play the clip once again that is supposedly the big issue.  Rich asks his elderly mother in law, Kathy’s mother and Teresa’s aunt what she thinks of Joe and Teresa pleading guilty to fraud. She says, ” I’ve always told my children, if you do something wrong, you always pay for it, you can never get away with it.”   This caused Teresa to come for the woman via Kathy and Rosie on that season finale to the point I thought Rosie might actually kill her.  I believe she had to be restrained off camera. Teresa went in on Kathy and Rosie via their parents and it was cruel and brutal. But somehow, they are “the cancer” despite her long stay in yoga camp trying to become as zen as Dina Manzo. Which is not at all. So apparently, she has succeeded.

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Driving Miss Siggy

rhonj-driving-miss-siggy

 

It’s time to check in the Felons By Bravo and their mob connections. I love how the dude that is going mental outside of Teresa’s book signing party has the random felon graphic under his name.  Where ‘s Joe’s felon graphic? Or Teresa’s? Why only give the graphic to this particular felon?  Why not just pop up a graphic that says “been to camp before.”  You know, like the cute labels that Teresa uses? Oh I forgot. We finished up the altercation with the felon last week.  I remember almost nothing about last episode.

Siggy & Dolores Family Scenes

First we have to check in with Siggy and her kids.  Sophie is headed off to Jew Camp.  Joshua got a driver’s license.  Siggy goes out to dinner with her ex husband and the kids. Oh and the new wife that Siggy picked out for him, and their kid.  Who pick’s out the next wife? I do not like the way that Joshua treats his mother. He’s a jackass.  Apparently the occasion was Joshua’s birthday. When they walk out, there is a brand new SUV waiting for him.  I was starting to wonder why the episode was called Driving Miss Siggy.

Dolores doesn’t seem to realize that Frankie is almost 18.  Andy Cohen knows this well, but Dolores, not so much. Dolores is so very Jersey. And so is the manager of her gym. Dolores really wants the men in her life to take care of her. Her manager is literally giving Dolores orders. Because she really needs someone to do that.

Real Housewives of New Jersey: All Bets Are Off

After a long, long, long, day of blogging, I am going to pray that this last recap of the night is not as hard as RHOOC was, that episode was just terrifying.  I am so glad Vicki and Tamra and everyone else is okay.  I have to say I’m a bit shaken just watching all of that. Let’s see how the Felons by Bravo are doing. Last week was a very nice trip to the spa and everyone had a good time.   Jacqueline reports that everyone got along. She is happy. Chris is cautiously optimistic.

I can’t with Melissa’s store problems. She seems to not want to sell any size but hers. It’s like it is her closet. Also she is not really the store owner. This is another fake storyline. Just like the garbage truck and everything else. Last I heard about the guy in that link was he was on the lam. The real owner is in the Bahamas telling her to take some time off from the fake job so she can enjoy her vacation.

To be honest, it is just nauseating seeing Teresa and Joe in this big house that fraud built. I don’t understand how you can steal almost $14 million dollars and keep the house and all of the furniture. Then the whole NYT bestseller crap is even more annoying. Is Bravo buying the book? Can there really be that many Teresa fans that can read?

Gia and Joe continue to fight. I think part of this is Gia starting to separate from her father. Joe is dealing with it all by drinking a lot. Teresa reminds us that she made memories and kept things nice and fake before she went in. Joe is kind of falling apart. He knows this may well be the last time he sees his family.   Later, Joe and Teresa argue. Joe gets drunk and verbally abusive. Dolores checks on Teresa and she is really open with her. I’m shocked she didn’t yell at her for asking how they are managing so close to the self surrender date.

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Swimming With The Gefilte Fishes

RHONJ teresa ashlee
I literally had to force myself to wake up from my coma for this episode of RHONJ. I’m pretty sure it is not going to be worth missing any sleep over, but maybe they will surprised me.

Dolores is renovating her house. Wait, no she isn’t Frank her ex husband has completely taken over the project, and he is doing things his way. Siggy seems to be more upset about her lack of input than Dolores is about hers. I really wish I could have my kitchen gutted. I should have done it years ago but I wasn’t planning on staying here anywhere near as long as I have. Now I feel some sort of way about doing it for the next person.  Later the girls come over to “help” with some demo. Delores’s business partner in the gym calls pissed because once again she has not gone in to work.

Since Dolores and Siggy have basically been run out of Delores’ house they head over to Jac’s to find her shoveling her own sidewalk.  Or so we are supposed to believe. Of course it is time to rehash the fight between Jac and Tre. Even production is supporting Jac’s side of the events and actually shows that Teresa started the whole mess by bringing up crap from five years ago that Teresa has agreed to put behind them several times already.  Of course we have the counterpoint over at Melissa and Joe’s, because Melissa has been tasked with fighting Teresa’s battles.

Teresa gets to remove her anklet bracelet. I am so tired of seeing Teresa’s ass in the air. I’m also annoyed that all of Teresa’s furniture is still in her house. Crime does pay.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Can A Leopard Change Her Spots?

It’s time for more of The Glamorous Life of Crime starring Teresa Giudice and friends. We start with the perils of having kid that can’t walk to the end of the driveway.  Should I insert my stories of walking miles to the bus stop uphill in both directions through mounds of snow here?  Teresa clearly blames Joe for her going to prison.  She doesn’t take any responsibility for her physically walking in to banks telling the loan officer that she had fake jobs as a realtor and a bunch of other things with her own mouth and signature. Nope, it is all Joe’s fault.  Despite her being charged with fraud counts that didn’t even include Joe. Or it is the bankruptcy lawyer’s fault. Teresa is the victim!

Jac arrives with coffee for Teresa and Teresa pretends she didn’t know she had a scene with her. Juicy doesn’t even pretend to have a job anymore. Teresa says she became a more forgiving person in prison. So they hug it out and decide to be friends. We will see how long this lasts. In other news, Teresa’s yoga obsession is really helping out in the bedroom. Teresa talks about prison dildos. Teresa tells us that she told Jac about the dildos because she knows Jac is kinky. I do not need to know any of this information.

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: A Very Hairy Christmas

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.
