Real Housewives of New Jersey: Roses Are Red, Dina is Blue

RHONJ S6 CastWith little to no explanation, Amber arrives at Melissa’s house with chicken soup of assorted food. Lots of hugs. Melissa’s aunt has died and Joe is very busy with work so she is struggling.  Amber was very sweet. She did have to point out that she had cancer just like Melissa’s mom. How long will this détente last?

Nicole and her mom talk about how they are going out to Vino’s restaurant with the family for Valentines Day. Nicole points out she has been with Bobby for a year. Nicole’s mother points out that he can go long stretches without seeing her. She fears that Bobby may be a confirmed bachelor. Nicole is ready to get married. it seems Bobby is not.

Next we are to believe that Joe took all the girls out for a date night while Teresa stays home and signs books. Melissia came over and they opened some Fabelini  made a fire and watched The Godfather. Teresa explains that it is her favorite movie and holds a lot of life lessons. I assume the main one would be that as long as you don’t get killed, crime pays very well.  Melissa and Teresa seem to have truly made up this time. Maybe. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Fambily Business

RHONJ Amber open mouth

 

Well this has certainly been a long dramatic week. So much turmoil in the world, in the US, and on the Internet. Let’s hope that this episode of RHONJ will be a little big less emotional. Can I just throw this out there about Amber’s hair before we get started? If she had chemo and lost all of her hair five years ago, there is no way that is her actual hair. Yet, for some reason she keeps insisting that it is. Wouldn’t it play into her cancer victim routine much better to just admit she has five pounds of extensions on her head? Does she really think she is fooling anyone?

Joe and Melissa go to the high-end car dealership because, promotional deal.  The storyline is even stupider than usual. They want to have the garbage truck custom painted. The garbage truck. It’s not pretty enough. The garbage truck. Seriously? Just when I am already pissed off by Melissa’s ridiculous environmental speech the high-end dealership that customizes GARBAGE TRUCKS points out that Melissa drives a Bentley which is hardly good for the environment and gets eight miles a gallon.  Did I mention the storyline is the Bentley dealer is going to paint their GARBAGE truck, because I can’t seem to stress the stupidity of this enough.  In fact we may have actually reached the nadir of stupidity. This scene may go down in history of the very moment the Real Housewives franchise jumped the shark forever. Right here. In this moment. Continue reading

RHONJ Blog Round-up: Does Amber Deserve a Second Chance?

Why Did I Not Post About Last Night's RHONJ? Let Me Count the Reasons...

All of the RHONJ blogs are up except for Amber’s and Nicole’s and theirs will probably warrant their own blog. Most everyone agrees that Jim is an idiot but a few of the RHONJ are trying to give Amber the benefit of the doubt. For me the strangest blog is Dina’s. I’m going to need lots of feedback that. In fact I may need an entire interpretation. I can’t be sure about who she is talking about.

From Teresa’s Blog:

I did feel sorry for Amber because she was just in a physical fight and what her husband was saying wasn’t her fault. But I wanted to hear the rumors about what Jim said directly from him. So I asked him. And he lied. Right to my face. That is not what an honorable man does. Dina and I were giving him the benefit of a doubt, trying to be nice to him, and he got even madder and uglier with us. You don’t need to speak to women like that, you don’t need to speak to anyone like that.

Then we got to hear Jim’s little lawyer speech. There are no words. What professional talks like that? I know Amber tries to defend him saying he was protecting her and got dragged into all this, but that amazingness was all said in an interview with him, apart from the fight. No one tricked or forced him into saying those awful things. That was all him.

As I said though, I don’t blame Amber for her husband. Amber has always been very nice and gracious to me. I try and see people for who they are, not who they’re married to. Although her taste in facials does leave a lot to be desired! Bird poop, are you freaking kidding me?

RHONJ Recap: Chicken Shits and Nightingale Droppings

I have bird shit on my stupid face.

I have bird shit on my stupid face.

 

We’ll we are back to the shit stirring house husbands of New Jersey. Jim has announced that he has passed the bar (hmm I wonder what state that was in, I can’t seem to find any record of it) but that the is not an attorney.  Then in the next breath he is screaming in Joe Gorga’s ear that he “prosecutes bank fraud cases” and “works for the same Attorney General’s office that is prosecuting Juicy Joe.”  Um, hey there Mr. I Passed the Bar.  Federal fraud cases are prosecuted by an AUSA .  Sidenote: Jim’s second twitter account in as many days was suspended again just minutes ago. What the hell is he doing to get suspended?  Is threatening to sue the entire Internet a banable offense on Twitter?  Pity if true because it was really funny. He was also suing Bobby for breach of contract for some nonsense that seemed to be Bravo related. He is also ranting against Bravo who I am assuming is who really is having his accounts suspended. This guy is a joke.

Currently, he has Joe Gorga up in his face outside of Bobby’s house. Let’s watch how this turns out for him. He’s already threatening to call the cops. I’m sure he will be threatening to sue him any second. Oh and on his first twitter account, Good Ole Christian Jim said suing people was like sport fucking to him.  Do they not run psych tests on any of these people? Continue reading

Beaver Update!

beaver-dams

It seems like every week there is someone from the Real Housewives of New Jersey in court. This week, it was Joe and Melissa back again trying to evict Kai Patterson from their Montville home. purchase agreement. In accordance with a previous ruling, it  was expected that Patterson would finally be forced to leave the home where he currently lives with his (step?) father; however, the judge declined to evict him.

Superior Court Judge Stephen Taylor vacated the  previous ruling that found Patterson in default on the lease because the motion was not heard in open court as New Jersey law requires when an option to buy a leased property is involved. Because Gorga tried to file the eviction pro se, he was unaware of the applicable law. That makes sense except for the fact that a judge, if not this judge ruled to evict and one would think the judge would be versed in the law. Apparently, the option to buy makes the applicable laws those concerning the sale of property rather than those governing  rental property laws. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Blog Roundup: It’s All About Amber and Jim.

RHONJ Amber and Melissa

I started this blog by reading Dina’s blog. It’s literally a philosophical discussion on “intention.” It reads as an advice column or perhaps a morning meditation. It’s weird and irrelevant. Everyone’s blog is about Amber and/or Jim. Before I even read the rest of them, I should point out that Amber had some sort of meltdown on Twitter, or perhaps it was Jim because at on point Amber actually claimed that Jim took over tweeting on her account. There was an altercation with Bobby where whoever was using the account said,” u r a sick bastard Bobby. ur day will come.” and “keep trying to be famous Bobby. we d/n want to upset daddy.” and other jewels. Don’t you love when media whores, point fingers at other media whores claiming the want camera time? That is exactly what they all want and why they are on the show.  Amber keeps referring us to her blog on twitter, but so far Bravo hasn’t posted it. I get the feeling it will need its own post anyway. So when it’s up, I’ll get on it as soon as I have time.

Melissa’s Blog:

As you saw in the episode, the Marcheses continue to contradict themselves. They seem to REALLY want to be liked by the Giudices and at the same time find ways to let us all know that they are too good for them. I’m confused, which is it? I also think Jim talks a big game and wants to portray a certain type of image that I would hope isn’t who he truly is, because no one can be that judgmental.

What I do know it that it’s not cool for a grown man to walk up to another man and call him a dumb ass in his ear in a very nasty way. Joe was sitting down and not in Jim’s face at all. Jim went too far. Joe just was defending his family, and for Jim to get in his face like that? I mean come on! He’s asking for a reaction, begging for it.

Watch What Happens Live With Melissa and Joe Gorga

WWHL with Melissa and Joe GorgaOn tonight’s WWHL, we have a rare event with a husband in a guest chair! It seems to be a trend on RHONJ this season for the husbands to get a lot of air time. I sort of like it.

Andy asked Melissa who was at fault regarding the brawl. It was a 30 seconds on the clock sort of thing and Melissa didn’t want to do it. She said that Amber came in very strong , but Nicole was the first to pull hair and Melissa doesn’t think anyone should put their hands on anyone. Andy seemed pissed by her milquetoast  response.

OMG they just showed a talking head of Jim from next week where he says he is trained as an attorney, if you mess with him he is going to sue you, he is going to leverage your house, he is going to drag you through three years of litigation, he is going to bleed you dry, he is going to humiliate you as I depose you for eight hours and make you my bitch. All of this in a tie, sweater vest and spectacles. It was one of the most hysterical things I have ever seen.

Melissa says she chose not to give the RHONJ any music this season. Andy seemed taken aback. Melissa says sometimes you show when I hit he note and sometimes he doesn’t. Also she has been working on her jewelry line. And also there are currently a bunch of beavers using her recoding studio as their personal nesting space. Allegedly. Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: A Hairy Situation

RHONJ S6 CastApparently, Melissa drives a Bentley. What is it with these housewives. Even Joe just said they are having money problems. Perhaps it is because they are buying tons of shit they can’t afford? Americans are so stupid with money.  I just can’t. More than likely they are getting a super cheap lease deal from this dealership where they are currently filming. Teresa tells Joe the Jim doesn’t want to be around the Joes because he thinks they fight. Also, the whole not wanting to hang out with felons issue. I am not a fan of Jim’s by a long shot, but if I had a business in that town, I would not be socializing with the Giudices either.  If you care, the fake bill for the new bumper for the Bentley was $7,000.

Dina wants to clean out her closet. She has a massive closet with a shoe hall with 400 pairs of shoes. It looks like Tommy is going to keep the house, or they are going to sell it because she is trying to pack out.

Teresa, Melissa, Nicole, and TeRESSA are shopping for costumes for the first responders party. The girls talk about Amber gossiping about Nicole to Melissa. Teresa is hurt that Jim is judging her. Um, Tre, the judge judged you and you confessed to be a felon. Felons are no respected members of society.  Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Blog Round-up

Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!

Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!

I just posted Amber Marchese’s blog in a separate post because she had A TON to say this week. Here are the highlights, and low lights from the other New Jersey fishwives Housewives.

From Dina’s Blog:

Well the shit’s about to hit the fan with Amber and the twins, and when I say hit the fan, I mean really HIT THE FAN. Next week is sure to be a juicy episode, and speaking of juicy, did you see the hottie that asks me out on the preview? Yes, if you’re not into drama, tune in for some major eye candy at least!

Teresa’s Blog:

I hope you are enjoying the summer! We were at the beach this weekend. I love hanging out with my family in the warm sunshine more than anything. I can barely watch all the snow from last winter on these episodes. I never want it to get cold again.

Yep, basically what I am saying is that Dina and Teresa had absolutely nothing to say this week. But the rest of the girls do… Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: It’s Just Cray.

RHONJ S6 CastOkay, things always get insane just before primetime. Sources. People Leaving. This. Board. Forever,  Phone calls. The dog wants stuff. It’s chaos on a Sunday night at the offices of Tamara Tattles.  Which is fine. But it is also my excuse for being behind. So let’s get going!

Melissa and Joe are not exactly in the garbage business. They are in the sensitive government shredded document disposal business. Which makes perfect sense when your sister has been indicted on 41 counts of federal charges.  Joe Gorga says that Melissa doesn’t know how many millions he has invested in this business. Um, perhaps we should start a how long until Joe Gorga is indicted for some federal charges pool? He is now telling Melissa the house is on hold. They must make do with their pitiful 5,000 square foot rental house for now. However will Melissa bear up during this period of homelessness and despair? Oh the sacrifices they are making.

Jim threatens to make his kid do a hundred pushups and then holds a family prayer all in one breath. I like that Amber and Jim are teaching their kids manners, I do, but it they seem weird. Very weird. They are planning a commercial for Jim’s mortgage business with the kids. Speaking of commercials and exploiting children, Teresa is doing a photo shoot to publicize “her” cupcake line. Milania is at Def Con whatever the biggest one is. I’ve never understood what Def Con means. Please enlighten me in comments.

Amber and Melissa are in a car going somewhere and catching up on the twins.  Amber tells Melissa that Nicole was divorced over some cheating, and  that Nicole “broke up a family.” I have no idea WTF they are talking about, and moreover, I don’t care. But I am going to try to figure it out anyway.  In her talking head, Amber says she is not a gossip but she loves Melissa and wants to get her up to speed. Continue reading

Exclusive! Are Bravolebrities Good Tippers? Some Are, Some Aren’t !

Vicki Rides the high roller overlooking Vegas!

Vicki Rides the high roller overlooking Vegas!

It seems my story about the housewives in Las Vegas last weekend spawned a few people from the service industry in Vegas to give me some updates on housewives and their tipping habits.  The report on Shannon and David is from last weekend. The report on Patti Stanger and Brandi Glanville was from a few weeks ago. Most of the others occurred last year. Enjoy!

Shannon and David Beador

Very friendly toward waitstaff and all who approached her for photos. This source says she was approached a lot. She was a bit kooky and David was keeping an eye on her drinking. Shannon and David were affectionate and left a nice tip. They were there with Heather McDonald who has a reputation for being a bitch and not tipping.Ditto, Heather’s friend Chelsea Handler also a non tipper who was at the same venue previously. And received comps.

Gretchen and Slade

Last summer, on a day Gretchen Rossi got some bad news, she and Slade and a posse were in Vegas. They were comped in the club but also did not choose to tip.   Continue reading

Real Housewives of New Jersey Blog Round-Up

RHONJ Christmas tre joe

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
