So it looks like we won’t see the dramatic heart wrenching reunion of Teresa with the family union the third or so episode to give her time to decompress from federal prison.
It will be the Melissa and Joe Gorga show for a bit. And I don’t have a problem with that. But what I do have a problem with is that Jac is shoving her autistic son in front of the cameras within the first ten minutes of episode one.
We all knew Teresa and Joe Giuidice were criminals when they were paying for things on their doorstep with wads of cash. They are paying their debt to society even though they are still flashing the benefits of their criminal activity.
But I can already tell, I am going to had Jac and Chris for their exploitations of their son’s illness to the point I may not be able to watch. I have a lot of experience with autistic kids and I think that putting kids on reality TV for anything more than sitting on Santa’s lap or going on an Easter egg hunt is abusive. I would not even do that with my kid.
I was once called into the principal’s office for translating the photograph release form to my Hispanic parents and letting them know it was not a requirement for them to sign it. My principal was convinced I told them not to because I refused to have my imagine on the school website. People are wiseing up to that now. But at the time I was “being ridiculous.”
If Jac’s storyline is going to be how she almost went bankrupt and lost her house because of her autism treatments and never mentions the charges they stole money from their business…
I am going to have a problem with this season.
