Five minutes in and I am already laughing at Tre. She’s trying to teach her kids Italian even though she only knows about a dozen words. Or as she says “I speak dialect, not the real thing.” Then she explains that Joe speaks it better than she does. So Bravo shows her trying to help Joe pronounce the words. Joe knows how to say “How much is it?” in many languages though. In even better Bravo editing news, Kim D shows up to invite Tre to the posche Fashion Show and her response is “Oh! I love that show! It’s so much fun!” and then Bravo plays an extensive black and white flashback of all the hair pulling and cat fighting that is synonymous with the fashion show. Of course Tre loves it! Everything is perfect and wonderful in the land of Tre.
Then lots of boring stuff happens so I start googling how to keep there from being so much space under pictures in WordPress. I never did figure it out. There are so many irritating things about WordPress. Then I notice that Tre is getting her makeup done with the guy that will soon claim that Melissa was a dancer at his fine establishment. Tre very politely asks him to stop and sends him away and he apologizes and leaves. Not like that scene was shot after the big brawl to come or anything. We know Bravo would never do that. Teresa just doesn’t want to talk about her family though. Angelo comes back with ice to apologize again and Tre leaves. Totally not filmed after the fact.
I checked my archives because I was sure I had blogged about this whole “Melissa was a stripper” thing before. I didn’t find a post. It must have happened before I branched out from only posting about Atlanta. The short version is that Melissa was a bartender at a strip club or a bikini bar (depending on who is telling the story) called Lookers for a few months. I’m not sure why this would be such a big deal. I guess we will have to tune in next week to see how this becomes the end of Teresa’s relationship with everyone.
