Y’all! Are you sitting down? No seriously! You need to prepare yourself for what I am about to say! I am having a good day! No anxiety! No random weeping. I feel pretty good! It’s a bloody miracle! Also, Banjo is doing pretty good today too relatively speaking! What is going on!? 🙂 Now let’s knock out this RHONJ Recap so I can start counting the minutes until The Thing About Pam comes on. If you haven’t watched. Stop what you are doing and binge the first few episodes. Update I beat Wordle and Quordle in short order too! It’s a good brain day!
There Is A Prick Inside My Love Bubble!
We begin back at the team building site. Spoiler Alert! It’s not helping! I am so tired of Teresa Guidice and her “love bubble.” Teresa blaming Margaret for literally everything going on in New Jersey. Margaret says that Teresa is behind Jennifer calling around to find out about the Evan rumors. Teresa continues to deny, deny, deny. Teresa screams forever about not understanding what an analogy is. Jennifer lowkey throws Teresa under the bus. It’s time for dinner where the fights usually happen. But, Teresa can’t even be bothered to sit down.
Then, Teresa goes after Traci because Tiki asked Louie about the allegations that he is abusive that were all over the Internet. If he had not asked Teresa would have said someone should have just asked him. Then Teresa brings up that there is plenty of stuff on the Internet about Traci being Tiki’s mistress when he was married. And her we go. Traci could care less if Teresa asks about that. So, Teresa goes back to to Margaret and seems to think that no one would have known except for the fact that Margaret mentioned it. Teresa gets pissed and leaves.
I am so irritated by all the Gia scenes, but I guess someone has to film with Teresa. Dolores is doing a celebrity softball game for charity. She is raising money for the breast cancer unit at the hospital. They will be playing the doctors. Teresa sees an opportunity for people to wear her athleisure wear to the game. Because, free advertising. Oh and she plans to sell her line at the charity event. Because, Teresa. I’m also irritated about Jackie’s eating disorder treatments. The therapist says she is full blown anorexic. This is a very long scene.
Bill and Jennifer have their 19th anniversary coming up. So, Jennifer and Bill go on a dinner date. Jennifer says that her mother didn’t say a thing after she was told about Bill’s affair. Jennifer told Bill everything she was thinking. She wants and needs a supportive husband. I’m not so sure how down he is with that.
Teresa Is All About Teresa
Teresa not only plans to sell the workout clothes that she suddenly pulled out of her ass because she needs money because she doesn’t know how to handle finances, she texts the ladies to tell them to wear it at the game. She even texted Margaret who she just cussed out within an in of her life! The nerve of this woman! Dorinda calls Traci and neither of them are wearing her stupid shorts. The charity softball game hasn’t even begun yet and large donations are already floating in! They are playing at a real stadium with real uniforms and team locker rooms. It’s Impressive!
There are people lined up outside. It’s so nice to finally see some real charity work on this show. I don’t think we’ve seen that since Dina Manzo. Everyone agrees not to wear Teresa’s crap. When Teresa and Gia (WHY?) arrive, Gia is rude to everyone because they are not wearing Teresa’s bullshit. Gia talks about being a girls’ girl and how Teresa supports them in everything. ARE. YOU. KIDDING. ME????? Shut your piehole, Gia. Dolores caves and wears the leggings. I think Melissa does too. Jennifer of course arrives in Teresa wear head to toe. Bill declined to show up. Joe Gorga cut the sleeves off the custom baseball jerseys that the charity made for them. #JerseyIsAsJerseyDoes
Batter Up! Batter Down!
Finally we get to the softball game of the century. Jackie was on a softball team in high school but so far it’s not helping. We find ourselves in a Bad News Bears situation. The guys are upset that Bill didn’t come. The guys group needs to come together. The women actually think they are playing baseball. Close, but no cigar. Teresa wants to know (a) did they get a touchdown and (b) does her hair look alright. Not necessarily in that order. It’s only the first inning and they are getting creamed. Jennifer Aydin is at bat. She is wearing a catchers mitt to protect her new nose. She actually gets a hit and then falls flat on her face running to first base!
She get up and is fine. The guys start doing shots in the middle of the game. Jackie scores a run. They are making a comeback! They have gone from losing six to nothing to being up nine to six! Teresa mocks Margaret’s ass and says if she would have worn her leggings it would not jiggle like that. Traci has been more vocal this episode and I was thrilled to hear her call out Teresa’s body shaming. Former professional athlete Tiki arrives late during the sixth inning. Ladies and Gentleman, we have a ringer. He starts taping Louie’s ankle and Teresa who is doing the most this episode to keep her spot on the show starts taping Tiki all over for “asking questions.” Louie had no problem with the questions. Tiki saved the game with his tremendous outfield work!
Over $200,000 was raised for charity and there was no huge drama.
