Time for a Real Housewives of New Jersey blog round-up! Ratings for this season are dropping like a rock. Personally, I think it is because Caroline is not there. And three new people is at least one too many. I have always said these shows would do better with less housewives. We would be able to get more involved with their lives and get a truer picture. Alas, we are programmed to live for the table flipping scenes which is not what initially drew me to reality TV. Dina promises there is a lot of drama to come, so perhaps the ratings will pick up. Anyway, let’s see what the pertinent part of the blogs are this week! Continue reading

First of all, Andy tweeted tonight that we should be patient for Teresa’s WWHL appearance, so hopefully everyone has cooled down. With Rosie on, there is always the possibility she will say something inappropriate! As usual, I will ignore most everything the non-Bravolebrity has to say because no one cares.
First off, they discuss the ceramic shoe wine bottle holder gift that Nicole got for Christmas. No Bueno. OH, I just realized this person is not from Game of Thrones, but from that pageant show on Bravo, Game of Crowns that I have already forgotten about. Now I have my 9-10 time slot on Sunday to watch Unforgettable on CBS and Reckless right after at 10. Even though I DVR them to watch whenever I can after I recap Big Brother. Anyway. I don’t care about her either.
Also, Andy has begun to implement the whole, “first timers to the show get the first chair” rule. I think this is utterly ridiculous and he just started it because we were all on to the original seating method of who is the biggest deal to Bravo, or whoever likes best. That will still be in effect on nights with no virgins. Continue reading
It’s Christmastime in New Jersey! I love a good Christmas episode! YAY! We start at Tre’s house where Tre and her family are setting up the family tree. Tre says it is great to stay home this year for Christmas and be out of the public eye. Um, Tre, the public doesn’t pay you any attention during Christmas, unless you are putting your entire Christmas drama on TV! With all of the ornaments breaking, I’ll be shocked if any make it to the tree. Especially because the parents are drinking Fabellini while Teresa tries to make out with a disinterested Joe. Tre tells Joe that people were talking about her at the “harvest party.” Joe says until they get their day in court to “prove themselves not guilty,” they can have any opinion they want because they know who they are. By the way, the words “not guilty” were frankenbite edits.
Joe and Melissa are putting up their Christmas tree too. And Melissa is saying crazy things in her talking head just like Tre. Melissa informs us that they sold their Montville home and are “shacking it up in a rental.” While that last part is true, after numerous issues with their rent to buy tenant, the deal has fallen through and Joe and Melissa claim they now want to move back to Montville. Antonia screams she does not like this small disgusting house! It looks to be at least 4,000 square feet on a couple of snowy acres. Poor things, their tree is too small for their little rental house. How will they cope?
The twins are at their parents to put up their tree. The twins’ mother is named Santa. For real. The twins’ father goes on some wine-fueled speech about Italian tradition as the family decorates their tree. Amber’s kids are making the most disgusting gingerbread house ever. But they seem to be having fun! In spite of Amber, who is odd. Continue reading
Teresa’s blog focused on her family, and all of the people who were in the pretty picture:
My kids always make things brighter no matter what though. I’m glad you got to see more of them just hanging out, cooking breakfast, doing homework, twerking…you know all the normal things kids do… Gabriella is growing up so fast and is such a good, responsible older sister. I love when she helps Milania with her homework. Milania is Milania. Yes, she is definitely funnier than me! She’s also a little caretaker and such a snuggler! Audriana is almost 5! Can you believe it? She wants to do everything her big sisters are doing, especially go to school. She goes to preschool and loves it, but she can’t wait for kindergarten. And Gia, my oldest, is a teenager now! She is every bit of a teen: taller, beautiful, and super sensitive and emotional. She has such a big heart and so much love for everyone.
Yep! Everything is perfectly normal! I am gonna take a guess that the reason we rarely see Audriana is she was born into the chaos. By the time she was aware of her surroundings, Tre and Joe were already aware the end was near. Joe was allegedly cheating a lot and the home was anything but happy.
I’m so excited for Real Housewives of New Jersey to be back! It’s clear from the title Bravo chose to exploit the legal woes of Teresa and Joe Giudice as much as possible. And frankly, I could not be happier. White collar felonies committed just for the pretense of social status are particularly vile to me and part of the punishment should be social shunning, in my opinion. If you missed any of the Giudice court proceedings, I’ve covered them all in detail here.
OMG I am mesmerized already. We begin with a montage of the news coverage of federal charges. Melissa and Joe are standing firmly behind Teresa. Melissa calls Teresea who answers her cell in the kitchen on speakerphone right in front of Gia. Melissa asks Tre if the stories are true. Teresa says, “N-N-No, what came out today is not true.” Gia has bags under her eyes from crying and looks devastated. Gia asks her mom what she is talking about. Teresa evades her questions. Gia says she knows what is going on. She is old enough to understand what is going on. Gia breaks down in sobs. Okay this is going to be bad. I hate seeing Gia cry. Teresa is clearly devastated.
The editing for this season is already over the top fantastic. They have totally spent the money on production this season with aerial views and such. You can tell they are sparing no expense on this season. And now, we flash back to three months before just like it is all movie!
And it is the hilarious scenes with Tre’s girls. Milania is bawking at doing homework so Tre calls in Gabriella to help. As Gabriella explains capitalization to Milania, Milania rolls her eyes and asks Tre if she can read a book while “she (Gabriella) is doing this.” Miliana my be an out of control brat, but she is a funny and adorable one. Continue reading
I fear this is going to be one of those fast sneak peeks I can’t fully absorb and blog at the same time. It does look like they go to the Okefenokee swamp. Melissa fancies herself some sort of model in the same realm as The Village People and Milania calls Teresa a butthole. And that was in the first five seconds.Dina is a bitch and fights with Teresa. The Giudices trial is played up. Gia is a mess.
Milania is allowed to make omelette unsupervised and all her parents are buttholes. It seem the kid who was allowed to wipe her butthole all over the refrigerated produce section has no decorum. But she is at least insightful. Quelle surprise! Oh they are totally playing up the federal charges. The show will totally be focused on that. WHICH IS GREAT! It also means that we can expect the same treatment for Phaedra with Kenya narrating the events on RHOA next season. Teresa appears to deny pleading guilty even though we saw it in court. Teresa has four more heads of hair than usual.
Teresa doesn’t think she should be judged despite the fact she pled guilty to numerous federal felonies. Um, that is how life works. As a society, people judge criminals in a negative way. If you defraud people and plead guilty, people are going to look down on you, even if you have extra fancy hair and a pretty dress on. Teresa is sad that people say they hope the worse for her in jail. No, people just think, if you do the crime, you deserve the time.
She doesn’t want her daughters to be affected. Um, too late. Continue reading
Bravo released a press release today announcing the upcoming season of RHONJ! Looks like we will have a sneak peek on June 1st! With the actual season returning on July 13th! So um, what is going to be on Sunday between RHOA and RHONJ? Kandi’s Wedding? Here is the whole press list for you to read, there is a lot of interesting stuff in there!
NEW YORK – May 14, 2014 –Bravo Media’s watercooler hit, “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” returns with a super-sized premiere on Sunday, July 13 from 8-9:15p.m. ET/PT as Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new “Housewives” Amber Marchese, identical twin sisters Teresa Aprea and Nicole Mauriello, and the return of fan-favorite Dina Manzo. Also appearing throughout the season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri. A preview special of the upcoming season will air on Sunday, June 1 at 10p.m. ET/PT.
This season, Teresa and her husband, Joe, fight to keep their family intact as they embark on a very public legal battle for their freedom. Teresa’s oldest friend, and veteran housewife, Dina, returns to help her soul-sister, but ends up revealing her own private pain. With a divorce on the horizon and her daughter, Lexi, heading off to college, Dina attempts to face her fear of dating in the 21st century. Continue reading
The Real Housewives of New Jersey have been filming season six for some time now and with filming comes tons of rumors. Now that I have a moment, I thought I would take a moment to catch you up on all the gossip. Or maybe just some of it. Let’s start with the big question. Will we see Teresa and Joe Giudice dealing with their impending trials? Um, is Andy Cohen Jewish? Of course we will. While for some reason the recent Nightline interview seemed to indicate that it would not be addressed on the upcoming season of RHONJ, Andy has assured us it will be front and center. Teresa reports that her castmates have been very kind in not bringing up the subject, but my sources say that is not true. The new girl, Amber does confront Tre about her legal woes. You can expect scenes with Teresa and Dina where Teresa shares her concerns.
Are Teresa and Melissa getting along? My understanding is they have an uneasy truce at the moment. It’s not all sunshine and rainbows but they are presenting a united front. Melissa has few allies and needs Teresa this season. However, Dina’s friendship with Teresa does not extend to Melissa. Teresa is quick to defend Melissa with the others so far. She is bigger than ever on the family thing this season. Continue reading
Two staff writers for NorthJersey.com have a very interesting piece on the behind the scenes world of Joe and Teresa Giudice’s attorneys. Also in their piece they talk about the attorney who handles contract negotiations for Joe and Melissa Gorga, and Kathy Wakile and Rosie.
Joe and Tre’s lawyers have reviewed hours and hours and hours of raw footage from the show that the Feds subpoenaed from Bravo. #IndicitmentsByBravo
It really is an interesting piece of reporting. I highly recommend you go read the whole piece. Click through for an exerpt. Continue reading
Once again we start with the Giudice girls. Andy asks Tre which of her girls she thinks is most like her. Kathy says Milania. Teresa says that Kathy remembers her being like Milania as a kid but she doesn’t remember her childhood. Teresa’s parents also say that Milania acts just like Tre when she was a kid. Andy asks what the funniest thing she has done lately is. Teresa says she has been twerking a lot. Teresa has not had the sex talk with Gia because she has not started her period yet. Jac says something about giving her a hand mirror so she can see what she is working with and Andy gets rattled and moves on. Are you concerned with Gia growning up to fast? Makeup, etc. Teresa basically says she caved. They show a cute Christmas scene with Tre, Juicy and all the girls decorating for Christmas. Continue reading
Well hell, I wasn’t expecting to have to do this again tonight. Imagine my dismay as I am watching Dancing With The Stars wondering who all these “stars” are (the only two I recognized were Amber Riley and Snooki) when suddenly my TV flips the channel to RHONJ!
At least they are starting with some unseen footage of Milania. This might be worth watching if it were all Milania. Milania is hitting the other kids at school and Teresa misses the point. This is terrible parenting. Why am I not surprised?
Speaking of horrific parenting, Joe and Melissa are talking about sex in front of Antonia. Meanwhile Joey can’t add 30+30+11. Melissa says Joe doesn’t know the tens place from the ones place. Melissa had to redo Joe’s homework. Perhaps they should have let Antonia do it. Continue reading
It’s Round Two at The Venetian. For some reason I thought we already did this. Right off the bat it is all giggles and a humorous name calling reel.
Oh Lord, someone asks Teresa about the meaning of a sociopath and she says she was unaware they were in school today.
Someone is pissed that Caroline laughed when her boys talked about fat girls being blow jobs queens. Well, we are! Is that a bad thing? Jesus, lighten up Francis. I’m sure there is a point to sleeping with botoxed anorexics as well, though nothing is coming to me at the moment. Continue reading
