Why do catastrophes always strike when a housewives show starts? (I sort fed Banjo some bleach, oops. Sounds worse than it is, I think everything is fine). Anyway, Tre has arrived at Melissa’s with the kids and some cupcakes. Remember the bankruptcy filing said something about her trying to start a cupcake business? This is the second time she has brought cupcakes to a scene. Both times they looked like they came from grocery store (in the requisite grocery store clear box).
Milania is climbing on Melissa’s microphone boom in her fancy studio while Tre and Melissa talk. Melissa shows Tre the mock-up for her new book cover. Tre has a good point that if it is a book about her marriage Joe should probably be in the cover shot. Meanwhile, Melissa says it is highly suspicious that all of these stories about Melissa cheating on Joe are coming out right when her book is supposed to come out. She suspects Tre in her talking heads. These two have a VERY uneasy truce.
Meanwhile, poor Nick is traumatized because Jaq has been gone getting plastic surgery for days. Jac was surprised that he was aware that she left. Frankly, so is everyone.
I have liked Rich since the show began despite everyone else not really feeling the love, but I ran out of love for him last season. I am annoyed by pretty much everything about him. Meanwhile, Joe Gorga, Rich and Chris go to a cigar bar and talk about their wives. Joe Gorga is going to have a birthday party for Melissa in Arizona or somewhere. Later, everyone is meeting for some sort of get together at a middle eastern restaurant. Joe Gorga invites everyone to a spa in Arizona and they are all in especially Juicy Joe who is already planning to escape the spa and head to Vegas. When the belly dancers come out, Rosie throws ones at them and everyone gets up
and embarrasses themselves dances.
The Manzos are furnishing the Hoboken apartment. Everyone is arguing and Al and Caroline are still not feeling warmly toward each other. Lauren and her boyfriend Vito are out to dinner. Lauren has outgrown Vito. She is trying to tell him this but she is not very direct. Maybe she doesn’t realize it yet. Hoboken is really pretty! I would never have guessed. Kathy visits Caroline and they talk man troubles. Basically Al is never around and Rich won’t go away. Rich is so annoying especially when it comes to Kathy’s business.
Tre called Melissa and invited her to her Milania Hair Care launch so she could confront Penny and Jan about trash talking her. At Tre’s house Milania appears wearing a bra stuffed to a triple D cup. Milania wants to be “a mom for a day.” In Milania’s world fake tits make the mom. She explains all of this by walking all over the furniture that her parents failed to list in their bankruptcy filing. She is also pissed that she can’t go to the launch party for a product that is named after her. Poor dear.
At the launch party Juicy is very affectionate and complimentary with Tre. This is pretty much a night and day difference from previous season. What is his motivation to change? Penny and Jan are already trash talking Melissa. Melissa just made nice with Kim D? She is Melissa’s worst enemy. Speaking of enemies, here comes Jan running her trash mouth. She leaves so Penny can take a whack at Melissa. How old is Penny? I thought she was in their age group? She looks older than Lydia’s mother on RHOOC. Because I know that Tre was set up over the Poshe Fashion Show debacle, Tre’s behavior makes sense to me, but because Melissa still suspects Tre, Melissa and Joe think her behavior is suspicious.
Next week they go to Arizona and it looks fabulous.
