Sorry, I have too much going on today to try to explain the RHONJ trailer with interpretive dance and sign language. I can’t grasp why Bravo guards AN ADVERTISEMENT for their show like gold and doesn’t make it embeddable for all. So I will do a bit of purple pen on the press release and call it a day.
NEW YORK – May 24, 2016 – There won’t be any lazy days of summer when Bravo Media’s “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” returns for its much anticipated seventh season on Sunday, July 10 at 8pm ET/PT. Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga are joined by new Housewives, Dolores Catania and Siggy Flicker, along with the return of a true Jersey veteran, Jacqueline Laurita. Also appearing this season are sisters Kathy Wakile and Rosie Pierri.. Wait whut? What happened to the lesbian couple? They aren’t mentioned at all? I thought they were downgraded after the fight in Vermont (that was Jac’s fault) but no mention at all? So you can hit people all day long in Atlanta, but not Jac Laurita? If they were cut out, then why were they at the finale filming that Jac refused to show up for?
Vick Gunvalson has dated quite a few men since her split with Brooks and she shares quite a few of them on Instagram. This latest one has not to my knowledge been named yet, presumably to avoid all the drilling down by websites for background information. A few of the ones in between Brooks and this guy did not pass the prying eyes of the internet to be sure.
This one seems to be just part of the family. I’m not sure what the details are on Briana’s husband but it seems like I heard something about him getting a discharge for some sort of disability? I could be wrong about that. At any rate, whether Briana has finally gotten the hell out of Oklahoma permanently, as seemed to be the plan, or is just back in Orange County for filming RHOOC, it seems the whole gang is one big happy family at this Angels game last night.

This weekend, probably on Saturday, I will post my Top Ten Real Housewives of all time. I just finished writing my part and have a couple of friends you may know from the radiator room contributing theirs. Now that I have mine hammered out ( I can’t believe how seriously I took this and how I agonized over my choices!) and Xanadude and The Lady Cocotte have their homework turned in, I can now go and read their lists.
While we are waiting until tomorrow (probably afternoon) for me to get all this information organized into a post, why don’t you guys post your top ten lists in comments. We are giving reasons why we placed our choices where we did, and feel free to do that as well.
For me, I needed to come up with some sort of guidelines to go by. So let me know how you chose. Just housewives you like? The most interesting? The most watchable? What drives your ranking?

Teresa Gives FANTASTIC Bagel Head!
There are a few little things to report on Teresa’s Giudice’s court case against her former bankruptcy lawyer, James Kridel. Personally, I find Teresa’s constant attempt to find anyone to blame for her actions sad and ridiculous.
Kridel feels much the same way I do and asked the judge to throw out the case. His stance is obvious, Teresa went to jail for mortgage and bankruptcy fraud. Even it if he did something to cause her bankruptcy filing to be fraudulent, she had lots of federal charges not related to the bankruptcy at all. Like all those fraudulent meetings with bankers where she produced fake W-2s from jobs she knew full well she didn’t have. Teresa has lied repeatedly about her assets, and most importantly she signed documents she reviewed that left off most of her actual assets during the bankruptcy filing and she signed a plea deal!
Despite all of that, a judge ruled against Kridel and is allowing Teresa to go on with her ridiculous case. To me this is a non-story. Idiots can file whatever cases they feel like paying lawyers for with little to any actual legal standing. I read this information and decided it was not particularly newsworthy and didn’t change a thing. The case is still moving forward at the usual glacial pace.
UPDATE BELOW THE CUT!
As y’all know, when I sit down to do a recap, I am typing with one eye and watching with the other. This makes for some janky typos and doesn’t give me much time to think of something witty to say, but I learned long ago, speed is better than accuracy when it comes to blogging.
So this morning Wendy Williams came back from vacation. I like to listen to Wendy with my morning coffee (whenever the morning comes for me, I DVR it) because her first 20 minutes is usually a rundown of what is happening on TMZ and a few even less accurate places. If someone died, went to jail or filed for divorce before 10 a.m. I get the complete rundown while moderating and reading comments.
Today, the plan was to recap an interview with Melissa Gorga. Here is how that blog started out.
Both Kelly Ripa and Wendy Williams are back from vacation today and both are super tan. I’m jealous. Wendy shows a photo of herself on the beach in a bikini and she looks amazing. I’m also envious of that! Wendy Williams has been nominated for an Emmy for outstanding host and the show is up for outstanding talk show. Say what you want about Wendy, and I have pointed out that her tea is not always accurate many times, but she has succeeded in an industry where few make it past their first season. Don’t believe me? Ask Bethenny Frankel. You have to show some respect for her hustle. And I record and watch every day. On the other hand, I just checked to see the other nominees, and they nominated The Real which for me is basically saying that there are not that many talk shows on the air anymore, so everyone got a nomination.

Last night, the RHONJ finale was filmed a Macauso’s catering hall in Hawthorne, NJ. The pretense of the gathering, where the women are supposed to attempt to resolve all of the storylines was …… wait for it! …… a fashion show. But it was not a Posche fashion show a the Brownstone. This year, there is a new boutique owner in town. Remember when Teresa almost violated probation trying to make it home by curfew after filming the opening of Melissa Gorga’s new shop, Envy? Well, Envy Fashion Show is the new Posche Fashion Show.
Teresa was of course there as required to support her sister-in-law, Melissa. Those two have formed a surprisingly tight alliance in season seven. All the newbies were there including Robyn Levy and her wife Christina Flores, Siggy Flicker, and Dolores Catania.
According to Vicki Hyman of NJ.Com, “The event was open to the public, but tickets were $85.39 for standing-room only to $370.24 for the VIP experience, which included a front row seat, a photo with “Real Housewives” stars, an open bar, dinner and gift bag.”
And in true RHONJ um…. fashion, no storylines were resolved and one returning housewife committed a major production no no and refused to film. In case you had not heard the bad news, Jaqueline Laurita is back on RHONJ, according my sources she is a full housewife. Or she was. She may now be bumped down to a friend since her tantrum last night. Continue reading
