Well, the title of this episode sure sounds promising. Nothing seems to excite y’all more than a good public shaming. Kim D was doing some press this week until Bravo had it all pulled, and in that press she was talking about how she groomed Teresa for prison and helped her prepare to serve her time. She talked about how close they were and how often they talked on the phone until the situation with Envy blew up and she helped the original owner of Envy liquidate all of her product. Then Melissa insisted that Teresa break all ties with her. All of that happened before filming started though, so… this must be a new public shaming.
Teresa, the NYT Best Selling Cookbook author clearly doesn’t know that you dry off pork chops before cooking them. Melania and the girls are tormented by their grandmother’s death. Melania says she sees her sometimes and it’s scary.
Siggy and Dolores talk about Margaret meeting with Siggy for a peace talk. Siggy says she left feeling better but Dolores says not to trust her. Siggy lets Dolores know that Margaret said that she and the other girls think Dolores is a follower.
Margaret and her husband Joe go to Melissa and Joe’s house for dinner. Margaret really slipped right into to all the big scenes in a hurry. How did she pull that off? Over a game of pool, Margaret tells Melissa that she and Siggy made up. Melissa still thinks she is owed an apology from Siggy. Why?
Siggy is having a dinner party to host the latest housewives brawl. Siggy is crying about everything. A normal conversation with her son has her crying her face off.
Melissa finds out that Teresa knew about the pizza place before she did. And even worse, Teresa is in on the business deal. Clearly Teresa was the one who put up the money. They have to launder that cash somehow.
Margaret’s mom is adorable and they look like twins. She is dating and has an active sex life that she hints is quite adventurous. Siggy calls to invite Margaret to her party but she is already committed to an event in Vegas.
Teresa, Danielle and Melissa all go out to lunch. Danielle has it in for Dolores and Siggy. Teresa said that Siggy apologized to her for some of the things she said. Melissa is pissed that Siggy hasn’t apologized to her. Melissa tells Teresa that she is being too soft on her kids and needs to put her foot down. This pisses Teresa off. I just ate a meal on an empty tummy and I am literally falling a sleep on the laptop.
Teresa and Joe meet at the pizza place to get things going with the restaurant. Teresa rides on Melissa for being late and Joe is on Melissa too. Teresa is still pissed at Melissa over the comment about her kids. Teresa says she will pitch in in the kitchen. Melissa says she will hostess. Teresa says that Melissa will just show up on the weekend nights and greet people. It seems weird that Melissa is being forced into the whole restaurant thing considering they did not even tell her about it. Why is Tre suddenly trying to tell her she has to wait tables?
Milania, in addition to dealing with her grandmother’s death, is still dealing with Joe being in prison. She emails him every day. Melissa is right. These girls need more structure, not Teresa giving in to their every desire and tolerating their backtalk. She needs to read Ivana Trump’s book on how to raise responsible adults. She had quite a regimented system in place.
Siggy is getting ready for her party. She says that Margaret and Teresa both apologized to her but she has heard nothing from Melissa. Everyone is desperate for an apology. Danielle rides over to the party with Teresa and takes that time to tell her that Dolores said that Teresa does not care about anyone, all she cares about it money and that Danielle should be careful around her. I do not believe Danielle. But Teresa is pissed. It’s interesting that production put only these two in the Bravo van.
At Siggy’s party she has someone there selling handbags and accessories. I wonder how Margaret is going to feel about that? Melissa comes in being super nice to everyone including Siggy and Dolores. She asks Siggy what she’s been up to since she hasn’t seen her since Boca. Siggy starts right in on how livid she was about Melissa’s behavior. Melissa points out that Siggy called everyone animals and said ugly things. Siggy denies saying that even though it was filmed. Was she blackout drunk or just in denial? Then she goes on again about the cake getting thrown across the floor. Melissa has had it. Then, all of the sudden, Siggy screams at the entire party. “I want to ask you a question, so I want everybody to shut up!” Wow. She screeches, “If I made a cake for you and it’s your birthday and it is beautiful and it is three-tiered and it gets thrown across the restaurant, how many people think that is rude, raise your hand!!!” Everyone raises their hand (and their eyebrows) and then Siggy screams ” Thank you! Who throws a cake in a restaurant!” at Melissa. Melissa is humiliated. Siggy then lays down on the floor on her back. Because, crazy dramatics are highly encouraged by production.
Teresa’s acting sucks more than ever this season. No wonder this season only has 12 episodes.
Teresa and the girls sit down and revisit the damn cake incident AGAIN. Teresa wants to know why she was on Siggy’s side and didn’t defend Teresa and Melissa. Since Danielle has giving Teresa a reason to go after Dolores, she has no issue about screaming at her. Teresa says that Dolores is attached at the hip to Siggy. Dolores says she has always stood up for Teresa and says that she has never said a bad word ever. This is the cue phrase for Danielle to throw it out there that Dolores said that Teresa’s loves money above anyone. While I think that is a true statement, I do not believe that Dolores said it.
Dolores goes off the chain screaming at Danielle and pointing at her. Dolores calls her a fucking liar and a crazy scumbag. She looks like she might punch Danielle in the face. Dolores turns to Teresa and asks her if she really thinks Danielle is back to be her friend. She says Dolores is a starving hungry bitch. Teresa can believe what she wants but she better sleep with one eye open around Danielle because she is up to no good. Danielle says she has nothing to gain by lying about this. Oh sure, she does. Camera time. Teresa is wondering why Danielle would lie. Teresa is dumber than a box of hair. Dolores alludes to Danielle’s mental problems and that sends Danielle off stage left to prepare for the fake crying scene with Teresa. Teresa counts off her beats before going to the final scene. Teresa and Melissa leave with Danielle. These lines are permanently drawn.
Next week: More drama at the pizza shop, Gia tells Teresa that she has to actually discipline her children, Teresa, Melissa and Margaret side with fucking Danielle Staub over Dolores and Siggy.
