It’s Wacky Wednesday, when first we head to New Jersey for another RHONJ recap. Then we head down to Dallas where Andy and the RHOD plan to burn LeeAnne Locken at the stake. I’m a bit behind due some (non-resolved) technical issues. So there is not a moment to spare.
Oh I forgot that we ended in the middle of Danielle dragging Margaret by the hair. For some reason I thought we were done with that. And it ends very quickly with Teresa leaving with Danielle. All the other ladies are pissed that Teresa continues to stick up for Danielle. The normal people in the store look frightened and mortified. The ladies convince Margaret to stop talking to Marty. Danielle leaves and Teresa goes back inside and continues to defend Danielle.Margaret leaves crying and is disgusted with Teresa. Margaret says she can’t be friends with Teresa if she is friends with Danielle.
Dolores goes to Teresa’s to chat. First they talk about Teresa and Joe’s argument. Dolores thinks that Joe Giudice will be going after Teresa’s money when they divorce. Of course he will, and he should. Then they talk about Margaret. Teresa is done with Margaret. Meanwhile, Joe and Melissa talk about Teresa’s bizarre attachment to Danielle. Melissa is worried that Teresa will cause a scene at her fashion show. Of she will, it’s what she does. Let’s just get right to the brawling and get it over with.
Mama Joyce’s streets say that Teresa is dating the pool guy now that Joe is in Italy. Teresa and her brother go shopping for pool furniture. Joe tries to get Teresa to see the light with Danielle. It doesn’t work. Joe tries get Teresa to be nice to Margaret at the fashion show. She’s totally going to cause a scene with Margaret. I am all caught up and having to watch commercials because there is not much to say about this episode. There are only so many ways to say, “Teresa is an idiot.”
Let’s Get Ready To Rumble!
It’s finally time for the fashion show. In the history of RHONJ we have never had a fun, pleasant fashion show. Fashion shows are like the WWE Championship of RHONJ. Melissa runs the models through the plans for the show. Then she twerks on stage solely to embarrass her daughter. It was kind of funny when she dragged her mom off the stage.
Over at Teresa’s house there is an insane amount of glam squad types working on Teresa, Gia, and Milania. Of course Joe calls and Gia convinces Teresa to make up with him. Gia is not just the only parent in the house, now she is the marriage counselor. She’s kind of good at it actually. Now Teresa is asking for advice about what to do with Margaret. Gia says if she were Danielle she would have done the same thing, because she has a short fuse.
The Main Event
Everyone shows up in their finest Jersey looks. Dolores’s boyfriend, David is unavailable because he is going to “sniper school.” Am I the only one who thinks that is weird? Speaking of weird, I wish I had a photo of Margaret’s get up. I am not sure I can describe it in words. So I … um. Let’s move on. Margaret says she has whiplash. She rants about Teresa. Production sends in Teresa with Gia and Milania. One might think this will keep Teresa from popping off. But it won’t. I’m sure they are used to it by now. Teresa doesn’t even acknowledge Margaret.
The other women try to get Teresa to make up with Margaret. Jennifer seems to be fanning the flames with Teresa and getting her all riled up. Jackie tells Margaret that eventually Danielle will do something to Teresa and that relationship will end. That happens but I don’t think it happens until after filming. When Jennifer tells Teresa that the water thing was not as big a deal as the hair pulling, Teresa randomly throws water on Jennifer’s skirt. Jennifer is terrified of Teresa so she just sucks it up.
The fashion show itself looked like a lot of fun! Melissa did a great job. Margaret leaves quickly with Joe to avoid Teresa. Smart cookie, that one.
UGH. We are only halfway through the season! Off to recap Dallas!
