Real Housewives of New Jersey: Joe Goes To Fat Camp



It’s four days before we ship Joe off to fat camp never to be seen again, and he and Teresa are taking the girls to a bakery to make their own cupcakes. Why?  I’m sure Milania could teach Teresa how to make cupcakes at home in their own kitchen. Teresa lies her usual lies in confessional when she tells us that it was Joe’s idea to go make cupcakes with the girls at some bakery who paid for the promotional time.  Gia still has a lot of resentment toward Joe. She’s old enough and smart enough to know what her parents did, and she seems to put the blame squarely on her father.

Jac and Ashlee go shopping for baby stuff. Jac is beyond thrilled with the grandbaby. Grandma and mom are posting tons of cute photos on Instagram. Ashlee wants to do a natural birth. Jac is sad that she can’t share all of this with Teresa.

We get another “Siggy has a dysfunctional family” scene.  Later she meets up with Dolores to talk about the situation. I have no idea what was said. I was busy trying to understand the wine glasses situation. Two women, 7 straws with the paper still on, in a wine glass. You don’t use straws with a wine glass. The water was also in a red wine glass. Later the family went to a holocaust memorial.  I had paused enough to fast forward right through that. I’m trying to avoid as many heavy topics as possible. That’s why I’m watching this stupidity.

Real Housewives of New Jersey: Picking Sides

Today I was sent a bunch of court documents regarding Dolores’s husband Frank. I’m too groggy to read it all but apparently he was in some trouble as a real estate lawyer. And some previous criminal charges that had no jail time involved.  I am going to speed through this recap because I want to watch the debates live and I also am in the middle of a narcoleptic period again.

Dolores is still trying to talk Siggy off the ledge. Siggy is worried that Jac is mad at her. This entire first scene with the granite being installed is edited between at least two filming shoots. Note the disappearing electronic thingy under the cabinet by Dolores. It’s not there at the end of the scene. Clearly, they had to go back and make them say different things.

Siggy and Delores head over to Jac’s to find out if she is mad at them. She’s not. Jac says she is done with Melissa and Teresa. Siggy makes everything about her. Siggy thinks she should not go to the fashion show. Fashion shows?  It seems like the new girls are going to be on team Jac. Except for Dolores maybe. I think she will be neutral.

Teresa Giudice on Dr. Oz: Zero Acknowledgment of Wrongdoing



This is hysterical already. Dr. Oz literally introduces Teresa as “inmate number 65703-050 !” I can’t stop laughing long enough to type.  He literally doesn’t know how to pronounce her last name. To be fair, neither does she, but he is not even choosing from any of the iterations she has previously  used. The only way this could get better is if he uses the word criminal, and she threatens to rage on his ass! 

He goes through an entire montage of her criminal charges and her sentencing. I love how he says she spent her time wisely in jail and includes “cleaning up her diet” as an example of something normal criminals can do in prison.

Whoever dresses Teresa has a hysterical sense of humor. First they sent her on to WWHL with Andy Cohen in an orange jumpsuit. Today they have her on Dr. Oz in black and white stripes. A throwback to earlier prison wear.

She has the new face that I was talking about on WWHL the other night. It’s really hard to explain. I know she rushed to a dermatologist right after getting out, but this doesn’t look like surgery to me, it looks more like she’s aged ten years in two years. Also, her makeup is horrible.  Her under eye cream is orange and really noticeable.

She tells Dr. Oz it feels like she never left because she has four daughters and she “just got put right back in the worldwind.”

He asks her what prison was like and she says, “Well the place was really dirty, moldy, the bathrooms were disgusting.” She is going to go through this whole interview never saying the word prison.

Watch What Happen Live With Teresa Giudice



It’s time for Watch Who Lies Live.  I was not up for another half an hour the criminal last night, but I finally got a good amount of sleep after once again staying up until dawn, and I’m having so coffee and ready to do this.  Theresa has a very different face on sitting second chair with Andy. I’m not sure how to explain it and Andy has stopped posting selfies before the show so I’ll pause and see if I can find one for you now.  The photos always look so different from the TV.  Teresa’s foot soldiers, Robyn and Christina, the bartenders. They look much different from their housewives looks on TV as well.

Mindy loved the episode. So did Andy. Andy shares his favorite scenes with Mindy. He enjoyed Joe talking about his erection and Dolores talking about how Melissa and Teresa just put on their drag and showed up like nothing happened the next morning. Teresa doesn’t seem super happy with anything. Andy brings up that a lot of former housewives were tweeting. Teresa says, “Yeah, they all came out tonight.”  One of them called Teresa “a living nightmare owned and operated” by Andy. Teresa just pretends that she likes the comment.

Andy is going through a bunch of scenes quickly asking what Mindy and Teresa think. Right away Teresa basically says that Jacqueline was a stripper. This was a rumor going around with Teresa and Jac were on the same team that Teresa denied but now she’s down with the story.

Andy asks if Siggy was making things all about her. Teresa said she thought it as “cute.” Mindy says she thought it was “a lot.”  Teresa said she never someone cry so much.

Real Housewives of New Jersey: The Other C Word



This is the RHONJ episode is where things all go insane in Vermont. This is when the incident where Robyn and Christina lose their housewife position. I think it was technically Robyn’s housewife slot at the time. Things with Robyn get so “violent,” at least it was reported that way, that the lesbian couple that Bravo was so excited about was summarily dumped from the show and erased from nearly every scene. And they had filmed a lot. This is the official wording of the episode listing, “The group is divided on the second day in Vermont. Jacqueline is consoled in the wake of her dustup with Robyn. Then, Jacqueline loses her cool with Teresa and Melissa, And Dolores and Siggy at last reach their breaking point. ” Which makes it sound like they are not going to show us anything close to what happened.

Wasn’t last week the episode where I could not make heads or tails of what happened?  I’ve got some bad news for you then, I am less mentally clear tonight than I was last week. I’m starting to wonder if I will ever be clear-headed again. But here we go. It’s the end of a long day where it seems most people went skiing and Joe hurt his back in a fall. Everyone is exhausted. Dolores has her talk with Melissa about Robyn. I think a lot of things have been cut out already because it’s the end of the day after the night that Jac and Robyn had what we saw as a minor dustup. Dolores says that because Teresa is on probation, they don’t need any physical fights and  Robyn is threatening to beat up Jacqueline. Melissa does a talking head that was clearly taped much later in the season after things get much worse where she claims that Jac is obsessed with being Teresa’s bestie and has basically been stalkerish. To me this makes Melissa look like some high school girl who is competing with some other girl for the BFF slot next to the head cheerleader. All of the women on this show are so childish.

WWHL With Jac Laurita & Mark Consuelos

Mark Consuelos is there to sit there and look pretty for tonight’s show.  That is always a good thing. He’s also publicizing his new show Pitch. The bartender immediately says he did not like Robyn on tonight’s show. Jac points out that she was laughing at her to whole time, well most of the time really. I really do think that people’s blind hatred of Jac has them overlooking that this Robyn chick came for her on the bus before they even got going defending Teresa in the war on Kathy and Rosie. Frankly, I was thinking, “Who is this new chick and why is she such a loud mouthpiece for Teresa?” Teresa is plenty capable of screaming for herself, and she already has Melissa to be at her beck and call, does she really need another solider?

Mark Consuelos laughs at Robyn freaking out about being called a soldier. Then he does his Juicy impression. It’s not as good as I assume Kelly tells him it is.

I was still hoping for a decent photo from WWHL and looking on social media but there was nothing there.  Jac said that she and Siggy were just trying to have everyone get along for once when it came to Kathy and Rosie. They were both very hurt by Teresa’s choices. She also says things were going on behind the scene that were not shown that caused the issues with her and Teresa.  I knew there had to be something because they were went from fine to fuck you over two episodes.
