Will this Nashville trip ever end? Is there any place left in Nashville that will still let them film? I guess we will find out during tonight’s RHONJ recap!
Oh! It’s the finale! That sort of creeped up on me! The reunion will probably be an all out brawl. We start with a chef who Dolores hired to make breakfast. Margaret and Dolores are both at odds. Joe Gorga still wants to coddle Teresa. Jackie is struggling to stick to her plan to eat more. Tiki has been working this entire “vacation.” Margaret brings up that Teresa “fat shamed” her at dinner and no one else said a word. Jennifer and Melissa both want Margaret to take accountability. For what? Reporting news that is all over the Internet.
The whole group goes out to one of those bars on wheels where you have to pedal to make the trolley go. This seems ridiculous. Who wants to take a spin class while drinking. Teresa and Louie arrive late. Everyone sees to enjoy it. After multiple drinks they arrive at the restaurant for lunch. Jennifer falls down on the sidewalk. This is not going go well. More drinks are ordered. Teresa wants to talk to Margaret. Here we go. Everyone tells her it is not the right time. But, she wants to do it when she wants to do it. Margaret asks her if they have to ruin another meal. Teresa has a total tantrum saying that she wants to do it NOW!
Shut The Cluck Up!
We get a lot of old footage showing how kind and forgiving Margaret has been. Then, the guys have a hot chicken competition. Evan is smart enough to stay out of it. Louie can’t take the heat. Neither can Frank. Bill LOVES the chicken. Joe Gorga is dying and begs for a tie. Bill agrees and just kept eating. It seems that Jackie at some of her food. She was proud she had some coleslaw. I love coleslaw. Back at the house I realize that Dolores and Frank are sharing a bed. The guys that ate the hot chicken are all dying except for Bill. He has an iron stomach. Joe Gorga shoved a dildo down his throat to make himself throw up. His fingers are too short. I’ll just leave that right there.
The all go out to dinner at a cute rooftop restaurant with live music. The women sit at one table while the men keep a safe distance at their own table. It’s pretty close quarters. Teresa and Louie arrive late, again. Louie pulls Joe Gorga to talk privately. Louie thanks Joe for always being kind to him and helping him fit in with the group. Then, he says that he is taking Teresa to Europe next month and he is going to propose to her. He asks Joe for his blessing. First, Joe needs Louie to explain all the stories about him being abusive that are all over the Internet. YAY! Finally! Louie cries and plays the victim. Please. All the women coming forward are crazy. Joe gives Louie their blessing.
Things Get Hotter Than That Hot Chicken
Melissa tries to get Teresa to take some responsibility for her behavior. Teresa and Margaret finally sit down for a chat. Teresa cries. But, they are having an adult conversation! It’s a miracle. Well that didn’t last long. Teresa takes no responsibility. Louie tells Teresa that she shouldn’t have to apologize to Margaret. The spouses come up to get their wives. Margaret and Joe go back to their tables. Jennifer goes to check on Teresa. Then, Louie went from butter would not melt in his mouth when talking to Joe, to going off an a rant to everyone. He want to get a jet and go home. Where does Louie get his money from anyway?
Everyone at this point is seeing Louie’s true colors. He is beet red. Margaret tells the other ladies that she was right about Siggy, she was right about Danielle, and she’s right about Louie too. Where is the lie? Teresa goes to kiss Louie and calm him down and they leave. End notes: Teresa and Louie went to Greece on vacation and he popped the question. Margaret is starting a non-alcoholic beverage line. That’s weird, right? Melissa hasn’t missed a football game since Antonia went back to cheerleading. Dolores moved out of the townhouse and back in the her house with Frank and the kids. But, she has new boyfriend. Jennifer and Bill are still working on their marriage. Jackie is making progress with her eating disorder. She looked much happier when she was on WWHL
Speaking Of WWHL…
Margaret is on it so I will watch and let you know if anything important is said. Margaret looks fantastic. Brad Goreski, Marge Sr. and Marge’s housekeeper are there. Joe is apparently not there. Margaret said that Louie sort of redeemed himself at the reunion. She says he said of lot of valid things. That should be interesting. Andy lost his cool at the reunion and went off on everyone. Gifs of that are going around and I am trying to get one. I can’t upload gifs from Twitter. That’s about it.
