Last week’s RHONJ recap was kind of mellow with minimal drama. Could that happen two weeks in a row? I doubt it. Tonight the ladies visit with a psychic. It’s like all the production companies get together and plan a psychic episode, or a spiritual advisor, or a social justice protest, or start some sort of season long #gate of some sort that is never resolved, or someone goes to counseling or has marital problems. All of these shows are the same just with different people in different cities. Hell, we even have wire fraud in at least three franchises where housewives are going to do prison time or have already. Same shit, different city.
Jennifer whines to her mother about Margaret calling Bill her meal ticket. He mom whines to her about how horrible her husband is to here. Jennifer has fond memories of he dad. Her mother had to marry at 16 and her husband was 26. She’s been married to him for 48 years and she has had enough. After the psychic party, Jennifer apologizes for not being more supportive of her mother’s side of the argument between her and her father.
Margaret, Melissa and Jackie go out to for lunch. Jackie orders a lot of food Let’s see if she eats it. Margaret is pissed that Jennifer took a jab at her about sleeping with her boss. It seems that was a non-consensual situation. Melissa feels badly because she thinks she is growing out of her marriage. She is a lot more independent than she used to be. She plans to pay more attention to him. Jackie is shocked she is invited to Teresa’s “psychic party.” Marge speculates that Teresa is seeing someone and she lied about her girls having a soccer game. But, Melissa lies about it because she is sworn to secrecy. Margaret says that anyone who is talking about eating pineapple to make her puss taste sweet is getting it from someone.

They act like they are still married. They get along better with than Delores and David. Frank is the only person she has told about her biopsy. Oh, she has told David about it too.
A Psychic Party For Psychos
I made the title before Marge arrives in a jacket that says “Sweet by Psycho” in pink letters on the back. I must be psychic. This is the first time Jackie has been to Teresa’s house. Margaret invites everyone to go out on a yacht so she can read parts of her new book to them. Michelle, Teresa’s “realtor’ is invited to the party. Jennifer was on her IG live the night before about not having any nannies or housekeepers at the moment. Margaret thinks she is being insensitive to the poors.
Margaret gets a message from her stepkids grandfather. They were very close she gets super emotional. The realtor gets a message from her grandfather. Then, Delores gets a message from both of her grandparents. Her grandfather tells her that she has a health issue. The grandmother tells her that David is not her soulmate. The psychic says as soon as she dumps David, a wonderful new lover is coming her way. She also gets word her dog is in heaven. But, Delores was the most emotional about her dog. Melissa gets messages from her dad. Jackie gets support from her grandmother. Jennifer’s ancestors tell her to be more supportive of her mother. Teresa’s parents are happy for her new relationship.
I’ve read about three articles today about what a scuzzbucket Teresa’s boyfriend Luis is. He’s apparently some sort of sex addict who expects sex four times a day and runs some sort of a swingers club. Also, he’s has allegedly cheated on everyone he has ever dated.
Wait. Melissa is going to talk to her daughter Antonia about sex. She already has a serious boyfriend. Joe and Melissa talk about how she is working a lot now. Joe doesn’t want her to forget about him and being there for him. Meanwhile, Melissa and Joe go out to dinner. Joe wants to let Melissa know he misses spending time with her.
Jackie celebrates Rosh Hashanah with her extended family. She shares that her grandmother came at the psychic party and she is feeling better about starting the new year and having a new beginning. So, that whole meal went well. This was another decent episode.
