Melissa says that Gorga’s Pizza is packed every night. It’s mainly Joe’s thing. She has Envy and Teresa is very busy with her commitments as well and Joe is taking the lead on the pizzeria. She says that she and Teresa go in with recipes and ideas but are not there that often.
There is no RHONJ next week. Why? It’s Wednesday, not Thanksgiving night. I need crap to blog about, people!
I love Jerry O’Connell he is the only straight male that comes on WWHL to dish on the housewives that I don’t take issue with. That said, I am not going to recap who he picks for his dream team and other stupid games Andy makes him play.
Melissa seems confused by a lot of questions. She doesn’t remember mocking the fact that Siggy had a plastic surgeon at her “women’s empowerment” retreat. I remember it, and I think she was absolutely right. Telling women to take better photos of themselves for dating sites, encouraging plastic surgery and giving makeup tips is ridiculous with regard to empowering women. So are all the platitudes that she and the divorce lawyer were spewing. There was absolutely nothing empowering to women about that retreat.
Andy is super excited to host NYE. I’ve decided I have to watch it because they are usually up on a really high platform and there is always a chance he might fall off.
Melissa rightly sticks to her guns about Melissa being an overly permissive parent.
Melissa says she is very frustrated with herself for not walking out of Siggy’s party where she publicly shamed her. She says when she saw it on TV she was angry that she sort of just stood there and took it.
Melissa says despite having a recording studio in her house, she has no plans or desire to make more music. Joe really wants her too, but she’s just not into it. She is very busy with Envy.
Because my recap was such a dud, I went to watch the aftershow. Someone asked Melissa if she had gone to visit Juicy Joe in prison. She says she has not, but he is doing really well. She says Teresa was at her shore house all summer because hers got repossessed. And Joe would call a lot while Tre was there. Actually, she didn’t Tre’s shore house being in foreclosure. But is was sold and I believe the entire structure was razed.
That link above is not about the house getting razed. I could not find that link but I did find Andy’s last appearance on Wendy Williams an it was such an awkward thing, I think you might enjoy the read.
Anyway, Melissa says that Joe would call a lot and he is actually doing great. He’s lost a lot of weight and he is passing the time.
Melissa is asked if Siggy’s Women’s Empowerment Retreat is hypocritical since Siggy is always starting shit with the other housewives and publicly shaming them. She tries to be polite about it, but says that on the next episode she will call Siggy out a bit for that sort of thing. The most interesting part of that is that the situation with Teresa and Joe & Melissa seems to be the real deal now that Joe is in prison, they are her fambily.
Melissa is asked how often she and Tre see the Wakiles. She says they don’t really see them much at all. Too bad. The Wakiles are good people. They are missing out. Next, Melissa is asked if she misses Jaq’s friendship at all and she tersely replies, “Is that a joke?”
I am REALLY surprised that Andy allowed a viewer question about Jerry being a guest on the Wendy Williams show when she fainted. He said it was horrible and very scary and he is so glad she is okay. He also said he watches her and Kelly and Ryan everyday and that he is currently unemployed. I love Jerry O’Connell.
I really enjoy Kelly and Ryan. I want whatever Kelly is on. She comes out every morning at nine a.m. fresh as a daisy and is perky. I’ve told you guys before I’ve talked to my therapist about this, back when I had a therapist. I get she is rich and married to a hot guy and makes a kajillion dollars, but I still believe everyone has bad days. I get that she overacts a bit. But she always has funny stories to tell and is BFFs with everyone who is represented by CAA. She has genuine friendships with her co-stars from Michael to Ryan. And Anderson Cooper, David Muir and Andy Cohen. They know her kids. She has Ryan over frequently now with his girlfriend. I envy her ability to be “happy” all the time and to insert herself into the lives of people who help her career. She has quite the life.
Anyway, I digress… What did you think of WWHL last night?
