There were not many Bravo blogs from the Real Housewives of New Jersey this week. Teresa just thanked everyone for their support. Melissa laughed about Amber’s phone call. And Dina warned us that Scary Island pales in comparison to what we are about to witness in Florida. The twins didn’t put up anything. at all. And then, there is Amber. Amber is about to play the cancer card AGAIN to explain away her ridiculous phone call to Teresa.
OK, OK, OK, on to my most annoying scene to date — my total meltdown when I called Teresa! OH MY Lord! I seriously was annoying to watch, I cannot imagine what you all were thinking. I remember that day, and I can assure you, I was having a very rough and emotional day. I cannot share exactly what was going on yet, but I was going through a very difficult time. I think it just all hit me at once, and I was displacing my fears and anxieties onto Teresa. Not that I do not care for her or her family, I truly do. That was absolutely not insincere; I was emotional for personal reasons and just could not deal. I do wish though that Gia, a 13 year old child, could have been asked to leave the room as her mother talked to both me and Melissa. I guess we have very different parenting styles. In my opinion, Gia should not hear adult conversations. Regardless what you think of my breakdown, I certainly do not give a crap about what she was wearing to court, I am thinking only of her children. Honestly, I wish I was not so empathetic to other sometimes; I take on other people’s heartaches all of the time, and it greatly affects me.
Clearly, she is implying that her cancer scare that happens on an upcoming episode was the reason for her meltdown. It also really chapped her hide to see Gia laughing at her. Gia is a teenager living in the house with two people preparing for jail. She’s well aware of what is going on. Amber’s thought that Gia should be banished from the kitchen is ridiculous. She was part of the scene.
And, as far as asking too many questions, she is right, I did, and I apologize. This is difficult for me; I am unfamiliar with situations like the one Teresa and Joe are in. It is my personality to educate myself on everything there is to know of the situation. I remember when I was being treated there were two groups. Some people being diagnosed with cancer did not want to know anything about it. Their attitude was just give me the treatment and call it a day. As you can see, that is not me, I wanted to understand the science, the medicine, and the statistics about everything that I was going through. I think and think and think repeatedly in my mind until the thought is pulverized. Sometimes it is exhausting; I wish my brain would turn off. But it is just me, always has been and always will be. However, I do have to learn and respect that not everyone is going to be like that, including Teresa.
This paragraph should have just said. “I’m super nosy and I ask way to many very personal questions about people I barely know.”
Going on to the scene where we were discussing Project Ladybug and our trip to Florida. I had not seen or talked to Teresa since being at her friend Victoria Gotti’s home where she shared that bombshell with us. I had no idea what to expect, especially after the attack at Bobby’s house. The best way to explain this to you is to bring you into my mind and have you walk through my thought process.
Welcome to my mind:
Oh God, I’m not sure I want to enter here…
1. The twins and I were working things out. Was Teresa going to say something? How was she going to handle it? I did not know Bobby and the twins were trash talking behind my back about reaching out to Bobby. I truly thought were working things out.
So trash talking Bobby and referring to his swarm of whores on the side was you working things out with the twins?
2. After what Bobby, the twins, and even Melissa did to me, I was not in a place that I trusted anyone. As I looked around the room, I thought not one person who knew I was attacked, not one, gave a sh–. They did not break it up. They were worried about eating and went to dinner to celebrate with the attackers. And remember, it was because of me this group met. They knew one another for a hot minute. So, no, I was not trusting anyone at this point. With that in my mind, I found it suspect and odd that Teresa, who is good friends with Victoria, never heard this shocking piece of information. Was I being set up? AGAIN!?
And remember, you started trash talking Nicole to Melissa.
3. More bizarrely we were just asked to go on vacation with the girls. I have never left my children for any reason, so this was a big step for me. Before I even considered going, I wanted to make sure that Teresa knew that first; I would not disrespect her or her friend and blab to anyone about what I was told. I wanted to be crystal clear that I did not know what she was going to do with this information, if anything, but I was not going to do a damn thing with it. I am sweeping it off my front porch!

4. What did Victoria Gotti gain by telling me this? Just why?! Still to this day it baffles me.
I leave you with a final thought that swirls in my mind still to this day. How did Teresa not know Victoria Gotti’s bombshell about Rino already? That is some story to keep a secret until a causal drop in. Why do the twins blame me and Jim? We did not know Victoria Gotti, so something seemed out of sorts. The meeting was way too coincidental for me. All I know is Teresa brought this rumor to my table, and I was asked to go to Florida with a group of girls who either attacked me or sat idly by as I was attacked…stay tuned.
Bravo brought the rumor to the table. It’s an interesting test for you to see what you do with this damaging information regarding your friends. From the looks of things, you tell Jim so that he can drop the bomb in the middle of vacation. I can’t wait.
