I really don’t understand the RHONJ Bravo Blogs this week. The twins seem to be mad a Teresa and Amber. This seems off to me. They didn’t ask Victoria Gotti to tell them the crazy rumor about Rino and his mother- in-law. I had trouble understanding Nicole’s blog at all. I’m posting an excerpt from Teresa Aprea’s blog below. As of now at least, Teresa and Amber are keeping the rumor fairly quiet. Teresa told Dina and Amber told Jim, but I don’t think that was necessarily wrong. Now when Jim just blurts it out on the trip in front of the whole group, that is outrageous.
Am I just looking at this wrong? Please explain to me the basis of Teresa bring mad at Teresa and Amber. Continue reading
I’m not sure I can handle Jacqueline exploiting her kid and Amber’s cancer storyline ramping up all in one episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. UGH.
We start with the Giudice family waking up in the house that fraud built. Teresa is trying to keep things as normal as possible right up until she and Joe head off for college. Am I the only one that forgets that Gabriella even exists? Teresa drives the kids to school in her PJs. Gia tells her mom she is proud of her for being strong throughout her trial.
I literally forgot I was supposed to be blogging during this scene with Dina. So boring.
Joe Gorga doesn’t seem to be having the easiest time dealing with his sister going to the big house.
Rino’s scene where he discusses his enlarged prostate and upcoming colonoscopy was made even more disturbing when he donned a pair of underpants with a cock sock which he twirled on national television.
Is this episode over yet? Continue reading

UPDATE: The shore house is on the market too. Looks like time for liquidation! Click here for shore house listing info.
Once again bizarre rumors are floating around on sites that should know better. Let’s review the initial charges against the Giudices. Counts 2-6 are for bank fraud. The Giudices took out millions of dollars mortgages on all of their properties. They all have minimal equity and are mortgaged well above the actual property. In order for the Giudices to sell their current residence, they must get a price that covers all of the mortgages that currently exist on the property. Since those mortgages exceed the market value of the house, they would have to find an idiot of a buyer. Or they could accept a reasonable offer and pay off the remainder of the mortgage themselves. The Giudices are not exactly cash flush at the moment. They have restitution and IRS bills and lawyer bills that must be paid before anything else. There is no benefit to the Giudices selling the house rather than just walking away from it and letting the bank take it. There is nothing to stop them from listing the house for nearly $4 million if they want to but there is no buyer out there at that price. Continue reading
February 28th, Four Days Before the Plea Deal
Of course we begin with a scene with Teresa, mother of the year, cooking with her adorable kids while wearing an apron that says please don’t send the mother of these adorable children off to college! Well, minus the apron part. Even Audrina is in on the act this time and she is like the invisible sister. Poor think is tasked with chopping onions and her eyes are all teary. Gia on the other hand looks to be on the verge of real tears and or a nervous breakdown sitting quietly at the kitchen table. Milania takes a bite of onion and acts like she is eating a jalapeno. She’s a drama queen that one.
March 4, 2014 (and before and after according to me)
The plea deal happens. Joe watches what appears to be a new show with some random actress voicing over the program. Or the news people in New Jersey report hard news in the same voice as “news” about what Kim Kardashian had for breakfast. Amber learns about it on her cell phone via ROL. I’m telling you they are some strange bedfellows, Bravo and ROL. TamaraTattles.com will be shown on an upcoming episode of Couples Therapy and I know a bit about how production and the websites work together or against each other. Amber cries while talking to Teresa. Teresa takes the call on speaker in front of Gia, age 13, who immediately laughs at Amber and her crying. I am waiting for her to say this is almost as bad as that time I had cancer. Gia is laughing at her. Teresa says in her talking head maybe Amber was on her period OR THINKING BACK TO HER CANCER. You can’t make this shit up. Continue reading

I still don’t get it.
Since April, a story has been run by a website or twenty with screaming headlines about the Giudices’ debts being wiped away for pennies. Recently, this absurd story has resurfaced with more loud headlines like, “GIUDICES SETTLE $13.5 MILLION DOLLAR BANKRUPTCY BY PAYING $15, 001.03!!!” This seems to have sent many of you into a frenzy! Oh the outrage! All that debt just wiped away! How do people get away with these things?
I would be outraged too, if it were true. But Tamara, I hear you saying. That one site had official court documents! They have proof that this happened! While it is true that the Chapter 7 Trustee’s Final Account and Distribution Report Certification That The Estate Has Been Fully Administered And Application To Be Discharged (TDR) form is floating around the Internet, what is NOT TRUE is the interpretation of the report.
It amazes me that websites owned by people who are licensed to practice law, seem unable or unwilling to read a simple bankruptcy trustee report. Continue reading
Oh for fucks sake. Really New Jersey? The plea deal was finished months ago. There was already a two month postponement. How long does it take to get from plea deal to incarceration in the fucking Garden State? This is just embarrassing. Teresa and Joe Giudice now have new sentencing date of October 2, 2014. Don’t hold your breath on that being a firm date either.
According to NorthJersey.com: (My comments in purple)
“Typically, sentencings get postponed so that everybody involved can be fully prepared,” said Henry E. Klingeman, Teresa Giudice’s attorney. “The court is waiting on information from all sides – the defense, the government and probation – so it’s been postponed by a couple of weeks.” Continue reading
Back in December I started hearing rumors about the RHONJ filming in an Atlantic City casino. I made my predictions for how things would go this season back in February, and so far everything seems to be going as I expected. The Atlantic City trip, and now it seems the Florida trip, were over the top with drama. Amber came back from the Atlantic City trip and posted on her Facebook that everyone made her cry. The twins were ready to be done with the show. Continue reading
More on the shore than meets the eye?
There is a joke here somewhere. Teresa Giudice who is awaiting her federal sentencing this month wandered into a fundraising event for a New Jersey politician. Sigh. This is was in my in box this morning but things just kept happening so now it is Thursday officially on the east coast and….. well I had no time to investigate.
I did read all the local news hounds comments at the paper who reported it. But still. Juicy is headed to the big house for sure, and quite frankly, Tre should be too. So how is she out, off the Bravo camera showing up at this guy’s campaign function?
I have a whole post coming on how another couple in a similar situation is handling things. Why is Tre out with a girlfriend at a political function? And why is she at the beach without the kids? Continue reading
NIcole Just Tweeted She and Bobby are headed to Vegas!
So, some mafia princess goes on national TV and says your husband once slept with your mother. How do you respond? Would your response be louder if it were true or if it was not? This week, Nicole and Teresa got their blogs up early. Both were a single page, way less than they usually are. There was no gratitude or shout outs to twitter friends. It was, pretty much the least they could do and still blog. Here is what they had to say. What they DIDN’T say may be more important. Continue reading
With 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

The Giudices head to the beach to enjoy one last month before their sentencing on September 23rd. They were also at the beach this time last year and things didn’t go so well. Let’s hope the cops aren’t called this time.
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.
