Bravo’s websites are trash lately. And so is my brain. It took me forever to figure out that this is only the second episode of the season. And frankly, it looked so much like last week’s when I finally found the previews, it felt like I had already seen it at first. Meanwhile, I’ve been crying off and on all day, FOR NO REASON. It’s really annoying. So despite a very, very nice thing happening today I’m in the hole. I’m also dizzy. This seems to be happening a lot. I’ve been blaming it on walking around with my reading glasses on, but I really need to get to a doctor since I began paying out the ass for medical insurance this month. Ugh. Enough of my whining. Let’s get back to the RHONJ recap and all of their brawling.
Respect Your Elders!
Oops! I am ten minutes behind. I got busy with other things and blanked out. We are back at the pool party where Margaret outed Bill’s affair. I’m supposed to like Margaret, but why is she so mean this season? I heard during filming they are all coming for Jennifer. Jennifer is a weak link in this group and it seems really mean to me. Dolores is the only one being kind to Jennifer. Jennifer wants to go home with her husband. I find Gia trying to be a housewife so annoying. She is so rude to her uncle Joe. She has a smart mouth this one. Joe Gorga wants to leave now too.
Gia doesn’t need to get in grown folks business. I get she can’t accept that her father is a criminal. But that is not Joe’s fault. He’s telling the truth. Truth is something the Guidice family simply cannot tolerate. Gia’s colored contacts also annoy me. Gia doesn’t think Teresa has any responsibility for going to jail. Gia and Joe hug it out. Louie is getting his first experience with the whole “fambily.”
Jennifer Throws A Huge Birthday Party
Jennifer throws an elaborate birthday party for Olivia. I do not understand why rich people do that. It’s not a lesson I would teach my children. I was raised by depression parents who talked about making tomato soup with ketchup and hot water. They were tight with money most of the time but did splurge on travel and jewelry. So I am just like them. LOL. I hate paying the current prices in the grocery store. Do I have 70 cents for a lemon in the grocery store? Sure. But, that just seems ridiculous to me. I’m in full blown STAY OFF MY LAWN old lady mode over here. 🙂
Bill is hibernating in his room. Apparently, it is not even Olivia’s birthday! He birthday is in January. Jennifer explains to Dolores and Teresa about Bill’s cheating while she was nine months pregnant. The baby was born the day after they had a big blowup over the cheating. They haven’t spoken about it since. The affair was ten years ago. Later, Jackie and Evan have the family over because their kids are going to summer camp for two weeks.
Carpet Is Making A Comeback?
Margaret and Dolores go shopping for…carpet? Dolores tries to defend Jennifer but Margaret doesn’t think she did anything wrong. Jackie and Jennifer get together to chat at Jennifer’s house. Jackie’s mouth is weird. We are ping ponging back and forth between these two scenes. I hate when they do this. It’s difficult to logically recap. Margaret always seems to be trying to dig the dirt on other people. Why is Dolores supporting her? Jackie is not supporting Jennifer. I feel like Dolores is changing the blame to Jackie. Jennifer never told her family or friends about her husband’s affair.
Dolores is catering a really nice event with tons of amazing food. Why is she living in a townhouse? Is this a rental for filming? How is Margaret still defending the fact that she outed someone else’s affair on national TV that she now has to explain to her children? I have more questions than answers tonight. Apparently, Dolores decided to downsize? Oh she is kind of over the house. She also isn’t seeing David much anymore. She moved into a “bachelorette” pad and loves it. The girls are showing up and Teresa is not there yet. Margaret who is this season’s bone carrier, brings up Louie’s weird video and says Teresa needs to address it. I’m really hating Margaret this season and I always really liked her. 🙁

Margaret Is A Straight Up Bitch
When Jennifer arrives Jackie kindly checks in on her. Jennifer is nervous about all the women knowing her secret. Then, out of the blue Margaret comes into the room and starts asking Jennifer what she is crying about. It’s YOU MARGARET! You caused her to have to tell her children that their father had an affair! Jennifer tries to point out that Margaret was very open about her cheating and she had an opinion about it. But she kept the cheating in her relationship a secret and Margaret went digging for it. Now, Jackie is mad at her for looking into the rumors about his cheating.
Margaret said, “You’re kids are resilient, they will get through it.” Are you kidding me? You caused them this heartbreak. They didn’t need to know. Jackie is way more supportive of Jennifer when she didn’t have to be. Margaret take NO ACCOUNTABILTY for the damage she has caused to Jennifer’s kids. Teresa stirs the pot with Jackie over the rumors that Jackie’s husband cheated. Jackie is all the way over these bitches talking about her husband. Jennifer storms off. The other women talk crap about everyone.
Next Week: The Gia and Joe drama continues. UGH. I’m over Gia. Shouldn’t she be in college?
