WWHL With Melissa Gorga And Bevy Smith; Plus A Fashion Queens Reunion!

wwhl-melissa-gorga

 

Before I even start, I have to comment on Melissa’s face. She has lost a lot of weight, and I have no idea where she had to lose it from, but her face is sunken in because there is no fat there.  These women who want to be a size zero no matter what their height are going to age horribly in the face with no fat smooth out the wrinkles. What they don’t seem to understand is these collagen injections they have shot into their face, “fillers” as they refer to them, are necessary because the natural fat in their faces is all gone.

Andy starts right in on Melissa with the hard questions we all want to know. “Why did she love Kathy and Rosie last season when they stood up for her, but this season she has dropped them like a box of rocks? “ Well that is an interesting mixed metaphor, but Melissa doesn’t seem to care for the question.  She says “why do you think I dropped them like a box of rocks?”   Then she gives the “we just grew apart” speech. Followed by the “they’re like family to us” before realizing that they are family to her and changing her wording.

“Why did Joe tell Teresa what Rich said? Was he trying to stir the pot?” No. She was going to see it anyway.

In a hilarious moment, Andy asks Bevy what 2016 fashion trend needs to end. Bevy says the off the shoulder look. Then looks to her right and says, “Oh, except for you.” #ShadeByBevy #TruthMoment

Someone calls in with the most ridiculous cross between a Jersey accent and a valley girl. She sounds fifty. And she says she is just “Sooooo over it” with Teresa being shady A F with the Rosie and Kathy drama.  I think her question was when will it stop?  Melissa says that Teresa feels they are not genuine and it’s for other reasons. Bevy says she would want people to reach out if she was in prison. Andy points out that they weren’t on her list. Melissa says she wasn’t either but she wrote a lot of letters and sent a lot of pictures.  Really?  I’m not sure I believe that. Didn’t we see her talking about not having any contact with Teresa until she got out?

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.

WWHL: Caroline Manzo Says That Her Relationship With Dina Is Over and Done

Caroline Manzo

 

Andy has stopped posting pictures of the guests in time for bloggers to pull prior to air time. So now we get these fugly composites. One more irksome thing to add to the list about Andy. Wait, Sammy  from Jersey Shore is a bartending with some other girl and they both co-host Siggy’s relationship show? Oh. I see now. This explains why the extent of Siggy’s relationship advice is the old adage about marriage being like a car you have to keep filled with gas. It’s all starting to make sense now.

Well the stupid composite is huge and I am not worth my time to resize so I’m just going with a Caroline photo.  Of course Andy brings up the shade that Caroline threw at Teresa tonight.   Siggy covers her ears and makes a super annoying screeching sound after that. Andy basically has to tell her to stop.  Andy mentions that Amy Schumer paid Caroline a compliment in her new book.

The poll question tonight is whose side are you on, Teresa’s of Kathy and Rosie? Obviously, Caroline loves Kathy and Rosie and says they are good people and she hopes that Teresa will realize that sometimes people get upset and say things they don’t mean and she hopes Teresa grows up and mends fences.

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.

Jacqueline Laurita Is Suspicious Of Melissa Gorga’s Motives

rhonj jac
It seems like Jac Laurita has finally stopped trying to write the next great American novel every week in her Bravo blogs.  She is also the only one that has one up yet.  I hesitate to even post about it since the RHONJ recap comments have already gone to pot to be yet another fucking autism debate.  I fear the hoards of rabid autism … I don’t even know what to call them… Internet experts maybe?…are going to take over every RHONJ post for the rest of the season. I will continue to ignore that topic, but it doesn’t seem to do any good. Especially this week where we FINALLY got a decent episode of the show.  I should not be shocked now that the fun shows get very few comments, while the comments on shit shows like RHONY are still going strong a week later. This is why we can’t have nice things.

I’m going to only address Jac’s comments on the dynamics between Melissa and Teresa because that’s all I found interesting in her blog this week.

There’s something I’ve been noticing since the show has been airing that I didn’t see before: It’s the look on Melissa’s face every time Teresa or I say that we are communicating and/or doing well together or when we are saying nice things about each other. It’s been consistent. I think she was bothered by it. It may be where her animosity was coming from. She may have felt threatened or jealous of my friendship with Teresa. She shouldn’t be.

Did I miss this? I am always typing and more listening to the show than actually having my eyes on the screen at all times.  I don’t find this theory far-fetched, but I haven’t seen the signs yet. Did I miss it or could this be foreshadowing?
