It’s a busy recap night at TamaraTattles.com! First we have a RHONJ recap, followed by the first part of the RHOD reunion. There is no time to waste so let’s get right to the Jersey girls.
We start with the Gorga family headed out for ice cream. Melissa and Joe tell the kids she wants another baby. No one thinks this is a good idea. No one. Joe gets the startingly news that middle schoolers get sex education. She is 13! That sort of thing should start much earlier!
I do not understand why Danielle is on this show. I also do not understand how Danielle and Marty are still living together. When was this filmed. They both had restraining orders on each other during the divorce. But that was in 2018. I knew there were issues with this season but surely this had to be filmed after all of that. Teresa drops by to invite Danielle to an event. And it is going to be AN EVENT TO REMEMBER. Danielle and Marty somehow blame Margaret for the demise of their marriage. Teresa agrees. But Teresa is dumber than a box of rocks. What is Marty’s excuse?
It Is Nothing Like Robin Hood, Joe
Gia and Teresa go shopping for her prom dress. Unlike her mother, Gia has a classic style. And a fully functioning brain. Joe calls during the shopping experience and Teresa and Joe fight over money. Teresa says that Joe left her with no money. She is paying for everything including Joe’s lawyers. Teresa starts bitching about their prenup. Joe says he never wanted to marry her in the first place.
Gia has to explain to Teresa that she doesn’t want to be involved in her parents fight. Another high school memory has been marred by Teresa and Joe’s constant bickering.
The Aydin family celebrates Orthodox Easter by cooking an entire lamb, head and all. It scares the kids. After the traumatic dinner, the oldest daughter has a conversation with her mom and grandmother about the church’s views on homosexuality. Last week we learned that Jennifer’s brother is gay. Grandma lies and says that her son is not gay. She seems to be one of those “pray the gay away” types. Apparently, Gabby is discussing sexual orientation with her school counselor.
Melissa, Teresa and Margaret go out to dinner. They talk about the upcoming shopping event. Danielle will be there and none of them want her there. Margaret says she wonders if Danielle and Teresa are more than just friends. Danielle RSVPed that she will be wearing a very expensive outfit to the event.
Danielle shows up in a hideous Versace (knockoff?) ensemble. She has her feet stuffed in pointed high heels that are at least a half size too small. Teresa laughs at all of Danielle’s snide comments about Margaret.
All the women except for Teresa are avoiding Danielle like the plague. They are talking about the guys poker game where they looked up Danielle’s porn. They laugh and giggle and have a good time while Teresa hangs with Danielle. Danielle whines to Teresa about the other girls and their mean girl behavior. That’s hysterical.
Teresa and Danielle go to confront the others about their treatment of the prostitution whore. Danielle calls Margaret “trout mouth.” Teresa screeches at Margaret. Delores is unhappy with Teresa, and that takes a lot! Danielle and Margaret get into a screaming match and Danielle chest bumps her. More insults are exchanged and then Margaret dumps here entire drink on Danielle’s head. Danielle starts breaking things in the store. Things that we were conveniently told the prices of before this all began.
Then Danielle kisses the store owner, turns on her heels and starts dragging Margaret by the hair.
