Andy goes straight to Teresa Giudice and asks if she is doing any better and getting any sleep. She says no, she says that yesterday was Gabriella’s birthday so they had a party at a sports place and it was so sad because Milania said she wants to have her next party there and her birthday is in February and she doesn’t know if she is going to be there. Okay, dumbass, her you are on TV again talking about big birthday parties now that sentencing is over. I don’t care if the whole thing cost $100. YOU CAN’T AFFORD TO HAVE PARTIES. The Feds really need to go in and find the stacks of cash those two are hiding. Dayum.
Andy surveys the other ladies on their feelings. Dina chokes up and says it is surreal to her. There are murderers on the streets and she’s such a good girl. My god these people are in denial. She is a good girl who was charged with FORTY ONE FEDERAL OFFENSES FOR FRAUD. She’s a good girl who continues to this day to lie to the court! Why is it that people think that “well I didn’t kill anybody” means they are not doing anything wrong.
Andy asks if Melissa has seen her since her sentencing. FYI this show was filmed four days after the sentencing. Nope. That means that she didn’t go to Gabriella’s birthday. Tre and Melissa are sitting right next to each other but seem very distant. Teresa doesn’t turn her head to look at her when she talks.
Dina says what she loves about Tre is that yesterday was Gabriella’s birthday and Teresa was right there with here. Teresa says the little ones don’t know anything. Teresa is clueless. Of course they do. They just didn’t get the courtesy of hearing it from their parents.
Dina says she didn’t want to do another reality show with family. She says maybe if it was a cooking show. Andy asks if she would do a cooking show with Caroline and she said, “Yes, I love my sister.” They talked about her previous season. Dina says she still has not filed for divorce. They are still friends with benefits. A viewer says it is slutty for her to date while she is married. She says they are separated. They are not separated if they live together at least not under the law. Tre sticks of for her and says slutty is when you have sex. She hasn’t had sex with them (the other guys.) Because Tre has enough time in her life to keep up with that and Dina’s vagina.
The question was asked about Dina’s funerals in her head. Did she have one for Caroline and Jac? Dina pauses. She says she usually doesn’t have funerals for family, but there might have been a wake. Then she laughs sort of maniacally. Dina says basically without naming names that it is healthier to love from a distance because Jacqueline is in both of their lives. She refers to Jac as toxic. I get it. I have a sibling with people who are toxic to me around as well. It’s just healthier to avoid the whole situation sometimes. Tre sticks up for Dina again. Andy says it was the show that was the issue and Dina says yes. Tre says she is glad Dina finally admitted it. Tre is not sedated at all. She seems to be in a good mood. Very chatty.
Tre launches into a discussion about the effects of being on the show. She says that it causes problems (you know like prison time.) Andy says that you don’t have to fight with your siblings on the show. Tre again reacts and says that people think keeping it real means you can hit below the belt on the show. She has never done that. TereSSA then pipes in asking Tre, “In six season, you don’t think you have ever hit below the belt???” Tre says no. Um, PROSTITUTION WHORE, anyone? Melissa is trying to be quiet but looks like she may erupt (fingers crossed.) TereSSa says she hit below the belt this season with her mother. Melissa says she doesn’t want to back track. She feels like they have come so far. Then she backtracks. Melissa says of course she feels like there were several times she was hit below the belt but with all the things going on she is not going to talk about how she feels about that. Again, Tre is almost looking in the opposite direction of Melissa.
TerSSa says that she wasn’t a religious watcher of the show before she came on but her understanding was that hitting below the belt was Tre’s M.O. Tre says she was friends with Jac for ten years and never hurt her. Um, then why are you not still friends? Melissa’s eyes are quietly rolling so hard they have left her face entirely and are rolling across the floor. She is never going to get through this without saying something.
Andy asks if she watched Manzo’d with Children and Dina says she doesn’t watch TV. I believe that. I actually envy that.
Tre is all smiles defending Dina. Now that the segment is about Melissa, Tre has her frown on. Andy makes fun of Joe’s sprayed on hair from last season and Melissa says she likes the shaved look. Tre does not like it. A view asks about how the
fake garbage business is going? Do you think it will be better or wore than your singing career. Melissa says that Joe is still a real estate developer and the garbage thing is just a side business. I mean what can she say? It was part of our deal with the car dealer who let me drive a stolen Bentley on the show and is under investigation for fraud now, so that storyline is over?
They ask about Chateau Beaver. She says the squatter is out, and the have the foundation poured on the new home. She says nothing about moving back but I thought she did/was. A viewer asks Melissa why Atonia is such a diva about living in a rental about three times the size of most homes. Melissa says she has talked to her about it, but Antonia is dealing with children of privilege and she was born into the house in Montville and now she has been downsized. Oh the problems of rich kids today. Melissa says she loves the smaller size, which I sort of believe because she kept trying to get Joe to build a smaller home.
Oh god. It’s time for Amber. We hit on Amber’s two storylines, THE CANCER and THE DOUCHEBAG. Andy asks her what stage her cancer was in when they found it. She says STAGE ONE. Andy asks what the survival rate for that is and she said 95% if you have chemo and a double mastectomy. Um, I don’t think you even need to have all that and it would still be 95% So now can we talk about how the hell her mastectomy gave her “Angel wings?” Or not. It’s all crazy. The twins and Dina mock her for saying The cancer. Nicole is going hard on her and says her nose looks good. Amber denies getting a nose job. Tre actually turns her head toward Amber when she talks unlike when Melissa does. There is a huge rift with Tre and Melissa. Reader questions about THE DOUCHEBAG. Andy asks if anyone can anyone nice about Jim. The twins think that Jim is very abusive at home as well. Jim kept trash talking on social media after filming ended. Andy agreed that Jim is a disaster on Twitter. Amber is starting to get heated saying that the vile things that came from Nicole’s children were the reason. Um, no. Jim is the reason. Jim is scum. If everyone says you are dead, you should just lay down.
Back from commercial and Kathy and Rosie are out on the stage. Tre is now a completely different person. She’s looks downtrodden. Andy congratulates Kathy on her new cook book and asks if Tre has a copy yet. She says know. Kathy says she is very late getting them out. I don’t really think Tre will need one where she is going. Andy beats the dead horse of the gag gift for Christmas. They edit in the footage that is quick and highly edited where Kathy says to send (pass) it down. That footage makes it look like it was intentional. Kathy says the gift could have ended up with anyone. Tre says no, Rosie put it in front of her. This is clearly the issue that divided the sisters from Tre. Andy says they could all use a dictionary and plays a montage of their butchering of the English language.
Andy asks Tre if things are good between her and Kathy and Rosie. Tre says, “Yeah, things are fine.” in that nonchalant way one says “nothing is wrong” to your partner. Everyone exchanges awkward glances especially Rosie and Kathy. They roll footage on Kathy and Rosie. It ends with a family dinner and Kathy is teary-eyed when they talk about Teresa and Rich asks Kathy and Teresa’s mother how she feels and she says, “When you don’t do the right thing, it always catch up with you.” Pan to Tre who clearly has now been sedated. Andy says he wants to go back to that conversation about your cousins situation and Tre gets up and says she needs a break and walks off. She says you guys can have the conversation without me. Tre is in a floor length gold lamé dress. The camera follows her offstage and she asks where the bathroom is. It seems to me based on her mood change she had already been to “the bathroom.” The producer followers her to the bathroom we can hear Tre say that when that conversation ends she will go back out, but “to me? family doesn’t act like that. Tre in the bathroom says that what her aunt said was very inappropriate. She is asking someone for gum or a mint. Dina says she never spoke about Tre’s situation on camera and Kathy shouldn’t have either. Dina’s hair. Remind me to speak on that later. Kathy says she texted Tre today. Kathy says she reached out to Joe and let him know she wants to come see him and the family. Kathy talks about going to Joe’s father’s wake as if she got flak for going from someone. Kathy and Rosie, especially Rosie seem very upset by the whole situation. Rosie cries. Tre is still in the bathroom. She found a penny. I’m serious. She says, “Oh a penny. Find a penny pick it up…”
Rosie denies that her relationship was just for the show. Rosie says she is a show in herself. Kathy is asked about her daughter’s brain tumor returning and she says how hard it is to have to go through that twice and wonder if your child will know you when she wakes up. It is very emotional and Tre walks back in and then stops and says, “Oh are we still talking about this because if we are, I am going to go back. ” Andy asks Tre why she left. She says because she is going through a lot and she needed a break. Andy says that he assumes what he saw in the clip really hurt her. Tre says,”next question?” and her voice breaks. Tre says she told her family not to talk about her legal issues. Rosie said no one told her. Tre says Kathy knew. Kathy says they didn’t talk about her legal issues. Tre says they just showed it! Lots of very tense moments and Andy finally lets it drop after pointing out to Tre that she is on a reality show where people are supposed to talk about what is going on in their lives. It’s clear now why Tre is mad a Melissa for the scenes with her and Joe. They were actually both very respective of Tre and just talking about how they were worried about her and support her.
Kathy was asked by a viewer if she feels like a traitor to Teresa for filming with Jac. Kathy says no. She says he relationship with Jac has nothing to do with Teresa. Tre says she doesn’t miss Jac but she wishes her well. Dina says she doesn’t know Nick at all. Andy asks Dina if Jac invited her over to meet Nick would she go? She says probably not. There is nothing she can do for Nick. She’s not Mother TereSSa, Teresa. Nick doesn’t know her. Dina says she is more bother “for the kids that understand” (implied what is going on ) like her daughter because Chris is her godfather. Dina says she invited everyone, Jac, Chris, Caroline, everyone to Lexi’s graduation party and they didn’t come. Andy asks if she will go to Lauren’s wedding. She says she doesn’t know. She was hurt she was not invited to the engagement party. She didn’t know it was”like that.” This whole show Dina is making it seem like she really wants to reconcile (without having a sit down conversation) and she is shocked that the rest of them won’t just pretend like nothing ever happened. Dina was shocked that Lexi and her parents were not invited. Wait, the grandparents weren’t invited to Lauren’s engagement party? Wow. Kathy asks Dina if she doesn’t think things change on a daily basis and Dina said no, just last month there was BS from Jac on Twitter. Perhaps this whole family should get off Twitter.
Dina doesn’t want Jac in her life. Dina said that Chris reached out when he heard she was separated. She could not have been happier. The implication is that Jac has interfered in their attempts at reconciliation. He was her best friend. Dina said they had a plan to meet and implied that Jac kept it from happening.
After the break there are only three minutes left and yet they bring out the men. Tre seem SUPER unhappy that Juicy is sitting behind her on stage. Perhaps she is worried about what he will say? Andy asks Juicy how he is processing all this. Joe says if you stuck a knife in him, he probably would not even feel it. Andy goes to Tre and asked why she told her family not to come to the sentencing. She said if she saw her parents there she would have broken down in front of the judge. Melissa says she was in shock. Joe says it has been pretty much hell. It’s his sister and his brother. It’s breaking his heart. Joe is crying. He reaches over and grabs Juicy’s shoulder and says, “I love you.” Tre turns around and snips, “Yeah we know.” It seem Tre is pissed at her whole family except for her parents. Certainly everyone involved with the show is on her shit list.
Next time: Tre once again claims she didn’t understand that the plea deal meant jail time. Teressa says it is a tragedy what Tre is going through but she knows the pain that she brought on to Santa. Jim points out to Joe Giudice that he called Tre a scumbag himself. I’m surprised Jim lived to see another day, but sadly, he did.
Sorry no time to edit, it’s been over two hours already. So keep the typo remarks to yourselves.
