I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of New Jersey July 27, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   Real Housewives of New Jersey    July 27, 2010

This was a surprisingly somewhat entertaining episode.  When expectations are low, sometimes you do get a nice surprise.  By the way, if I never see Teresa strattling Juicy Joe on a bed ever again, it will be too soon!  I was expecting this whole episode to be about TrAshley and her receiving her court documents about the hair pull.  Luckily it was a part of the episode but didn’t take over.

This episode was quite a contrast in daughters, Jacqueline has her hands full with that Ashley, oh my!  This girl is not seeing what is wrong with her behavior, she continues to think it is funny and laughs at her mother when she tries to take it seriously.  Filming ended on this show months ago yet here are Ashley’s tweets during and after the show:  (timeline is from the bottom up)

 http://twitvid.com/CTXXU  – this is how my boyfriend ( @Derek_Vance ) & i fight ! hahahahahaha ;] love him –this is from a few days ago

awwwwww how cute is jillian ?! that’s such a precious song !!! so cute ❤ it’s cuter that she wrote it… top that bieber

she looks just like her dad ❤ so pretty .. good for her.. too bad she has danielle’s personality

HER FATHER.. does know her..

why does danielle look mad that jillian is nervous?

ugh okay.. i need to stop…

whaaaaaaaaat a creep… “was hers just as beautiful?” “nahhh” …bitch “i don’t think everyone is ever getting that from him..

ps i do have a nervous laugh.. but that wasn’t it

i was getting mad at my mom because off camera she said the same stuff over and over and over …

DUMB. DUMB. DUMB. DUMB. DUMB. i look like such an idiot.. a big portion WAS editing.. a portion was just me being immature and stupid too..


just wait.. this next scene… especially how they edited it.. i look like such an idiot.. SUCH AN IDIOT…

ps.. WHY THE HELL .. would you wear that ring of all nights? what trying to cause drama at your own daughter’s sweet 16…

FYI- their dad is ALWAYS in their life… every track meet, EVERYTHING…. and the kids LOVE HIM.. and LOVE his step mom but danielle talks soooooo much shit about the step mom in front of christine and jillian that they feel they can’t like her in front of their mom or ever talk about her in front of their mom.. I’VE BEEN THERE when danielle would talk shit.. and I’VE BEEN THERE when christine LITERALLY cried to me about how her mom makes her feel bad all the time about being with her dad and step mom…

HOW CRAZY IS SHE ?! oh my god..

@joyjoyXO i’m not going after her.. that REALLY happened.. if she didn’t want anyone to say anything.. she shouldn’t have done it.. ASK ANYONE that goes to depaul catholic high school .. and trust me.. she says PLENTY about me.. just because she doesn’t have a twitter doesn’t mean she stays silent.. for the ammount of shit that she DOES.. she’s LUCKY i don’t say more than i am now.. relax lady.. you don’t even know any of us

HAHAHAHAHA favorite scene @AlbieManzo , @chris_manzo & @LaurenManzo

joe and teresa are so precious together ❤

poor kid :/

@chris_manzo: Jillian is cute, I can’t help but notice the Joe Jackson technique to push her tho, poor kid

many many years? my ass.. christine had to send a mass email and put up flyers in the school to get people to come.. and they advertised it’s be on film.. that’s why they went…

Christine is pretty.. and Jillian is talented.. those are traits you can’t give them lady.. look at lindsay lohan.. beautiful and talented.. look at her now..

i love my cousins ❤

hahahahahahahahahahahaha !!!! oh teresa…

oops i forgot the show is on…

@gabibondio probably haha i look like such an idiot in this episode…

Yes Ashley, you certainly do look like an idiot, unfortunately it wasn’t limited to this episode!

Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley from The OC were in New York City yesterday and spent the day with some of the New Jersey crew which is why you’ll see some tweets to Gretchen from Ashley and Ashley also re-tweeted one of Gretchen’s tweets

Ashley hasn’t learned anything, she hasn’t grown up and she continues to bash a 16 year old girl.  It is beyond disgusting!   The bottom line here is that Christine had a Sweet 16 Birthday party that was all about a charity.  I doubt that Ashley can say the same, or that she’s ever done anything for charity! 

Ashley even went into the fact that Danielle’s daughters do have their father in their lives, he goes to their track meets, and loves them.  Does Ashley think she’s slamming Danielle by tweeting all of that information?  Many step families have similar issues to what Ashley is talking about, it isn’t all that unusual.  The girls certainly don’t seem to have suffered from anything their parents have done. 

Ashley is so jealous you can see green in her tweets, it is so obvious.  Even if it is true that Christine is bashing Ashley at school, that is maybe a few dozen kids who hear this, Ashley is tweeting nasty rumors about a 16-year old girl on the internet where thousands of people are viewing them.  Ashley is just a bitch!  Someday she is going to be extremely embarrassed by her behavior and it will be too late to change anything. 

Already Ashley is blaming editing on making her look like an idiot in this episode.  Doesn’t she know that she looked like an idiot way before this episode aired?  In the car with her mother her laughter and mocking of the court documents just underscored her attitude about this entire incident.  She thinks it is ok for her to pull someone’s hair.  It’s just NOT!  Unless her mother was in immediate danger and Danielle was advancing on Jacqueline, Ashley had no right to get involved in any way!  That girl makes up lies and the family goes along with it, making this girl think that it’s ok to lie and manipulate situations. 

If Jacqueline really thought that her driving Ashley to the post office to retrieve a certified letter informing her of the charges against her was going to have some sort of impact on this kid, clearly she was wrong.  For this girl to giggle and threaten to counter-sue Danielle was just ridiculous!  Ashley continues to have a horrible attitude and since she got off all but scot free for her behavior, I don’t see any changes coming anytime soon. 

I think that “Aunty” Caroline probably feels pretty stupid watching these episodes air, as her interviews are constantly defending Ashley, it is apparent by her tweets that she doesn’t appreciate being made a fool of this way.  Again, the bottom tweets were posted at the beginning of the episode, the top ones here were during Watch What Happens Live:

Caroline Manzo:

OK, need to write my blog…sorry it’s late, busy week

@chris_manzo I think I’m going 2 post that in the kitchen, just as a reminder…. xoxo

Thanks peeps and tweets xoxo :o)

love is, everyone has eyes, love is….F it…. Joe’s hot…in the words of Teresa

I wanna hug her

disturbing scene

My Christopher, always makes me smile….. :o)

I’m here! how cute is my boy?

I do give credit to Albie for attending the Sheriff’s police academy, it is a difficult program and certainly a step in the right direction.  Typically it is a tough program to get in to, you don’t just sign up and walk right in to being a police officer.  It is a long and drawn out procedure to apply and be accepted.  There are exams and psychological testing, background checks and interviews.   I’m sure the fact that Caroline and Al host an annual fundraiser for the Sheriff’s department didn’t hurt Albie’s application process in any way.  Things may be totally different in New Jersey but here in Illinois, this program is tough to get into and doesn’t happen overnight.  I wonder if the police department officials know that they’re training someone to be a police officer who doesn’t plan on being a police officer?  Is Albie taking the spot in the academy that would have been meant for someone who was interested in a career as an officer? 

I hate to put a negative spin on it because you do have to give the guy credit.  While he waits for news on law school, he isn’t sitting back and doing nothing but whining about his situation.  That is admirable!  I do question the process of how he got in, however. 

Maybe Albie will find he enjoys law enforcement and continue on to be a Police Officer and forget about becoming an attorney?  

Note:  Caroline’s blog explains this further and it seems to be all good 


Every single scene with Teresa made me cringe!  She has certainly been taking lessons from Jill Zarin with her announcement that Juicy Joe will be cut off for a month if he doesn’t get her a decent anniversary gift.  Joe confesses to Chris that money isn’t flowing the way it used to.  Best we can tell by the time of filming Juicy Joe and his lovely wife had already filed bankruptcy.  Is that why Chris made that face and remained silent?  Or was it because Chris’ business also filed bankruptcy and he knew the money wasn’t flowing into his household like it used to either? 

I didn’t even enjoy watching Teresa’s kids playing Monopoly, first because they are way too young to play Monopoly, second because the conversation turned into expensive gifts for mommy!  However, maybe Joe and Teresa should play Monopoly after the kids go to bed and LEARN something!  Anniversary’s work both ways, it also happened to be Joe’s wedding anniversary, what did Teresa get for Joe?  Wait, she has no job, no money so I guess that means, nothing! 

Happy Anniversary Joe and Teresa, he doesn’t want to kiss you because you have too much crap on your lips Teresa, it is all very romantic!  What a joke!

A true wealthy man would have gotten a private jet to take the couple to an exclusive resort in a tropical destination and present his wife with a large diamond in a chocolate box.  Joe Giudice got a helicopter to take his lovely bride to Jersey City and shoved a yellow ring into a piece of chocolate cake.  Who puts the ring directly into a piece of cake?  I admit watching her dig it out with her fingers and the brand new ring dripping in chocolate was hysterical.  Not the good kind, the gross kind.   The rest of the evening was just disgusting!  The waiter’s face was priceless and I can’t imagine that the Giudice’s didn’t notice that Bravo was certainly trying to make fools of their little celebration! 

I found myself smiling for the first time ever during an episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey while watching Christine’s Sweet 16 birthday party.  I don’t know who originally had the idea to make it a charity event or whether or not Ashley’s telling the truth about the party being posted all over the school.  If it was, who cares?  It was clearly a huge success and with all of the party gifts being donated, I’m sure they raised a good chunk of money for charity! 

I saw beautiful Christine smiling from ear to ear being the superstar of the evening and having her daddy attend and that was just great!   Jillian did such an amazing job singing in front of all those people for the very first time, but that little girl also knew that the cameras were rolling and millions more would be seeing her performance, what a trooper!  The words to her sister that she wrote were beautiful and it is a gift that Christine will likely cherish for years to come.  Ok Sappiness over! 

I didn’t have a problem with Danielle wearing her diamond ring to the event, it is her ring, as she said and it certainly is stunning so why keep it locked in a jewelry box?  I’d wear it too!  Danielle was a bit over the top when greeting her ex-husband and his wife.  I think she was trying to make it seem as though it was a special rare treat that he showed up for his daughter’s birthday.   I think the man and his wife were pretty good sports showing up for a televised  party when clearly they weren’t there for that purpose, they came for Christine. 

Surprisingly decent episode, with the exception of Teresa’s anniversary this episode was all about the kids.  Jacqueline’s daughter, Danielle’s daughter’s and Caroline’s son were all featured.  They need to change the name of this show to “The Children of The Real Housewives of New Jersey”. 

Next week we will see Teresa’s baby’s Christening which will require the return of Dina as Godmother, I can’t wait to see how much money is spent on this fiasco.  The gaudy ugly dresses and wild hair and makeup (and that’s just on the kids) should be a sight to see. 

It was great to see Bethenny on Watch What Happens Live, she wore the same dress as she wears on her show during the interview portion.  The one shoulder number in shocking pink, in my opinion, is not her best look.  I much prefer the more modern looking dress such as the one she wore on the View last week.  This dress seemed to make her look older, it just isn’t a good look on her. 

I don’t know why Andy Cohen insists on putting celebrities on the show that do not watch or give a damn about the Housewives, clearly his viewers are Housewife fans and want to hear them talk about the shows on Bravo.  I’m told that last night’s guest is a regular on Saturday Night Live.  I didn’t find her funny or knowledgeable about RHONJ (or any RH show) and the white trash band-aid on her knee looked ridiculous!  If she is a comic, why wasn’t she funny?  Her face and the way her mouth moved was pretty gross actually.  Why can’t they leave well enough alone and run with just Bethenny as the guest?  She’s carried the show as the lone guest before and has done a great job! 

Andy asked Bethenny if she’d seen Kelly since the reunion and Bethenny responded “no, but I saw her from a distance in the Hamptons”.   Good job Bethenny, stay away from the crazy lady who is trying to BE you.  I was hoping that Bethenny would get the question about all of Kelly’s low rent copy-cat projects that sure seem to be duplicating Bethenny’s career path.  Kelly seems to think that her You-tube videos are going to get her to the same point as Bethenny’s real professional endeavors.  I wanted to hear Bethenny speak about that. 

The good news is that a caller did ask how Bethenny feels about Teresa’s book title, Skinny Italian.  Bethenny’s first response seemed to try to convince us that she didn’t know that Teresa’s book contained the word, “skinny”.  I find that difficult to believe since it is all over the internet and I know that people have asked her about it on Twitter.  Bethenny claims to read every tweet that she receives.  In any case, Bethenny didn’t deny it was a copy-cat title, Bethenny explained that her books have been on the New York Times bestseller list for a long time and that would explain why Teresa would want to use the word “skinny”.  While Bethenny didn’t say the words, she certainly implied that Teresa’s book title using the word “skinny” certainly helped Teresa’s book sales.  Bethenny added that it is the sincerest form of flattery.  Teresa has yet to tweet any response to Bethenny but then Teresa has been pretty quiet since the news of her garage sale was made public.    

Bethenny was asked about the famous “Satchel’s of Gold” comment that Kelly made and we finally got Bethenny’s take on the comment.  Bethenny explained that she had at one time said something to Kelly about her world being “rainbows, unicorns, cartwheels and satchels of gold”.   Obviously that never made it on screen during the Real Housewives of New York but it was enough to make Kelly remember that phrase and use it again in St. Bart’s.  Bethenny’s explanation doesn’t match Kelly’s but I tend to believe Bethenny’s as we know Kelly would never give Bethenny credit for coming up with one of Kelly’s famous quotes. 

Alex McCord tweeted that she was off to bed about halfway through Watch What Happens Live, I was a little surprised she didn’t say and watch the last few minutes of her friend on TV but maybe the friendship has fallen off a bit?  Or possibly Alex had seen enough of Bethenny? 

Oh and Kim G was on but said nothing important and was completely forgettable!

    Lynn, I love you but please, please, please, for all that is holy, do not include another “tweet” from that “twit” Ashley! One more “ha ha” and I will be in the market for a serious mental breakdown.

    I am begging here!!!

    • vilzvet says:

      Didn’t someone here nickname her Ashley Haha? So fitting.
      Just checked Bravo boards, just ones up from Danielle with lots of detail about the party and who donated. Nothing yet from Teresa, and a boring one from Caroline.

  3. I just read Caroline’s Bravo blog and it seems Albie is working as a volunteer with the Sheriff’s dept. and not going to actually be a cop. In the show’s episode he made it sound like he was going to actually work as and be an officer. It appears this is similar to everything else on RHONJ- half truths and outright lies.

    I’ve been dragging my feet this morning, finding all kinds of things to do other than write my recap-LOL You’re a real trooper for knocking your’s out and getting it up so quickly. Love your blog and recaps!

  4. anonymous says:

    Why so bitchy towards poor Rachel Dratch? She’s a very funny comic and sweet lady. I love Bethenny as much as the next person but your comments on Rachel were really uncalled for, I think. 😦

    • NMhousewife says:

      I agree. I enjoyed both Bethenny and Rachel Dratch on WWHL. She is very funny on SNL and I am not even a regularly watcher of that show. Also, I thought she had a lot of knowledge of most if not all of the housewives just by how good she played the game with B. She is the one who had to describe a particular wife to B. Granted, she is not beautiful, but she is prettier to me than Kelly (personality does that). I do respect all other opinions than mine though. Other than that, enjoyable blog overall.

      • bravofanfromday1 says:

        I was really impressed at how good Rachel did with the name $100,000 Pyramid style game with the housewives. I also must respectfully disagree that not only was RD a great guest on the show, she appears to watch the show too. I really liked her vibe with Bethenny too.

        I would love it if the Flipping OUt guy was on again too. He CRACKS me up. Especially if he is on with a trashy guest like Danielle or Teresa – or a flat out idiot like Lynn Curtin.

        Ashley is irritating as all get out and I must extend my thanks for the Tweet updates you posted Lynn. Ashley really doesn’t understand how moronic she comes across. It’s kind of pathetic I enjoy the reinforcement that she is a self absorbed brat – but it makes my total dislike of her a little easier to defend in my mind.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      I agree anon.

  5. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Just from looking at Alex’s tweets I think she went to bed because she had to get up really early to be on Good Day Philly. I’m hoping it’s still all good between them.

  6. Alanas's Cat says:

    Alex has previously tweeted that she had to get up at 5am the next day for a TV appearance. I suspect her going to bed when she did was so she could be awake for her own appearance, not as any type of snub against bethenny’s WHHL appearance.

    • vilzvet says:

      You owe each other a beer.

    • Tootsie says:

      Am I only one here who loves and lusts for Alex’s earrings. Simon bought them as a birthday gift second season (I think). She wears them a good bit and they look wonderful on her. The length is just right for her because of her long neck. Wish I could find a pair.

  7. vilzvet says:

    Here is a good recap of one of the links above regarding the auction, from Real Bitchy Housewives:
    “Last week, James Kridel, the Giudices’ Clifton-based bankruptcy attorney, said he plans to file an objection. A hearing on the matter would be set for Aug. 16.
    In the meantime, though, Harry Byrnes, managing partner of A. J. Willner Auctions, says “the auction is scheduled for the 22nd and we’re moving forward under that date.”
    If the court upholds the sale, prospective bidders will be able to walk through the house, at 6 Indian Lane, to preview the items for three hours, starting at 9 a.m. on Aug. 22, Byrnes says. The auction will be conducted under a tent in a large courtyard in the middle of the driveway.
    “If it was a smaller crowd, I would consider walking through the house and selling each piece while standing in front of it, but because of the amount of interest, we feel that this is the most conducive way to conduct the auction,” he says.
    The auction house, which conducted the highly publicized 2007 sale of the assets from Whitney Houston’s tour, is expecting a large turnout and has come up with a plan to weed out serious buyers from fans of the show who just “want to come see her house.”
    “In order to come onto the property, you’ll have to register,” Byrnes says.
    “Registration requires a name, address and phone number, plus a $300 deposit towards purchases. That gets you into the venue. If you don’t buy anything, obviously you get your $300 back.”
    No children will be allowed at the sale. Ditto, food.
    Byrnes says there are no reserves in this sale — no minimum pre-set amounts that must be met — but as with all bankruptcy auctions, the trustee reserves the right to confirm or deny the outcome of the sale.”

    So August 16th is a critical date to see if the auction would indeed proceed. Everyone has to wait until then. Love the idea of a tent in the driveway, but that means nobody goes inside the house. Which means that everything on that list has to be dragged outside, that is kinda sad. But no, still don’t feel bad for them.

    • vilzvet says:

      Oh, guess I misunderstood. The items are to be previewed inside, and nothing will be put outdoors. Just the auction itself is outside in the tent.

    • So that’s why Teresa is saying the auction isn’t going to happen. She thinks her lawyer is going to win the objection. I doubt it. Especially if they submit any of the RHWONJ episodes as evidence.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I wonder what the legal basis would be for the objection.

        “But your honor, my clients REALLY, REALLY want to keep their stuff. So whadda ya say?”

  8. HD says:

    I actually thought the guest knew alot about the Housewives because she was able to to do that game with Bethenny. If she didn’t know about them there was no way she could have done that game. She was giving specific quotes that Dwight, Ramona, Jill and others said so it appeared to me as if she watched the Real Housewives regularly.

    Also, I had an injury to my big toe and lost half of the nail. I am fine, it didn’t even bleed but of ALL THE MONTHS to have a big band-aid on my BIG TOE the summer months was not one I wanted. I mean it is sandal and open toe season. I am sure I look stupid and I am self concious about it. No one wants to walk around with a big band-aid on let alone being on national TV. 😦 It sucks.

    • Quincy IL says:

      You are on national tv?

      Don’t worry about the bandaid. Just wear nice shoes and everything will be fine. If someone notices, it doesn’t matter. Just take care of your toe.

      • HD says:

        Oh noooooooooooo, Quincy. I was saying that in relation to the woman from SNL having a baid-aid on. I am sure she didn’t want that on at all.

        • 2Stupid says:

          I felt for her. She explained she had wiped out on the sidewalk earlier. I know when I was pregnant Iwas even clumsier than I am now, which is pretty bad. In response to her faces, she has a popular character on SNL- Debbie Downer. Since that has been my nickname from my husband for many years, I am very familiar w/ character. I have to say I enjoyed her on the show, and thought she had some cute on point remarks.

          • Quincy IL says:

            I fell when pregnant on a downtown sidewalk. People run out of store when the see a pregnant woman down. LOL. Everything was fine. They fixed that sidwalk pronto. LOL.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      I thought she knew a lot too. The fact that we have become people who criticizes a pregnant woman for wearing a band-aid after suffering a fall is sad. Just sad.

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        make that “criticizing a pregnant woman for wearing a band-aid on TELEVISION after taking a fall” – oh the nerve! That is so declasse!


      • 2Stupid says:

        I feel the same way. It is one thing to criticize someone for having ill intent, but a completely other when we are mad your equilibrium was off due to being pregnant. **eye roll** I’m going to try and lighten up!

  9. CdnFillie says:

    Does anyone else see the difference between Guiseppe and NeanderTheresa…they don’t seem as lovey dovey as before..remember “happy wife, happy life” from the previous season? Now it seems T is forcing herself on her hubby..and he looks like he’s tolerating her so as not to upset her….tells me there’s something in those rumours about another blonde 😛

    • Quincy IL says:

      I did notice a change. Perhaps, Joe is beginning to see his wife has a problem with spending. She is also refusing to have more children and he wants a son.

      It’s their business, but they put it out there for us to see so I think it’s ok if we wonder about them.

      • HD says:

        I noticed it too! Money problems can really cause a marriage to fall apart especially when your wife does not work (which is fine) but then she spends like CRAZY. I mean damn. If you are not working at least curb your spending a little bit please! Nothing against stay at home moms but just because you are a stay at home mom does not mean spend us into the ground. (Not that Joe is innocent but Teresa just seems like she is really spending like crazy and demanding expensive things)

        • MickeyMouth says:

          I was thinking the opposite. She has become the earner. Her book, appearances and the RHONY. That might be hard on Juicy who is used to being the bread winner.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            I’m wondering where Teresa’s present to Joe was….she gots money coming in too (books and baby hooker accessories online) – betting she thinks what she earns is HER money and what he earns is tHEiR money…..

            • Quincy IL says:

              Tsk, tsk… that’s a dangerous thing to wonder about when you consider Teresa’s chest placement during pool games. Guess how she pays him. ROTFL

    • babykakes says:

      Teresa is one taco short of a combinationplate! maybe 2 tacos short!

    Theresa’s ring looks like it may have came from Ramona’s HSN line. It could be a yellow topaz instead of a yellow diamond.
    Jillian is really talented.

    • Squirrels says:

      Even a topaz at that size would cost a few hundred. Why is it not listed as an asset? Things that should make the trustee go…. hmmmm.

    • babykakes says:

      mayber t’s ring is a real rhinestone! she’ so dumb she probably wouldn’t notice
      the difference/

      • alicia says:

        There is no way that ring is real ! I tried a similar one on at Hamiltons here in Palm Beach county-it was smaller and priced at about 100,ooo. The stone was very pale as well.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Or maybe it was just borrow for the show.

      There are a few stories similar to that in regards to the real housewifes of OC.

    • loves old things says:

      That was the first thing that I thought! It screams Ramona QVC. Whatever it was, I doubt it was real. Diamonds are easily faked on television. It’s all an illusion, down to the accessories.

    Great recap Lynn. I, too smiled watching Christine and Jillian. Regardless of what I feel for their parents, I have great hope for the kids. Not every parent is worthy of mom or dad of the year and these two young ladies seem to adapt to their circumstances. They have each other. Jillian’s song implied as much. I imagine Christine was very touched by her sister’s words and showed sisterly love by warning everyone to listen up. She was right to do so, as we all have been in party situations where someone is trying to say something and ends up drowned out by the din of conversations. Kudos Christine. Way to take control. Were I her mom, I’d be beaming at that moment alone. As to Jillian, who wrote the lyrics and perhaps the base score, well done. I loved the “partners in crime” line.

    On to Ashley. What a self centered nimrod. Go directly to jail, do not pass go. ’nuff said.

    WWHL was finally entertaining. Bethenny consistently brings humor laced with snark. I find it refreshing. She owns every word she says, right down to admitting she let Kelly squirm for months re: satchels of gold. Why wouldn’t she? Payback is a bitch Kelly and it still doesn’t excuse your outrageous behavior. Now, Kelly’s kids are the one’s I fear for. Delusional doesn’t even begin to describe their mother. Certifiable is more appropriate.

    Albie…. Albie who? ’nuff said.

    Kim G. Now there’s a class act. This woman cannot get out of her own way. I don’t care how much money she has. If I had a “friend” like her, I’d run for the hills. To berate another on camera with the vile words she apparently uses next week is not just an embarrassment, it clearly shows her genetic makeup. Pure trailer trash. I could say, booze made her do it, but it doesn’t excuse her behavior. Run to Italy all you want, you cannot escape your soul. She happily flips off anyone who gets in her way, making me glad I don’t live in NJ. I drive a small roadster and just know she’d run me off the highway if I dared slight her by pulling past. I’m grateful she was out of the country and not there in person as that would have been more than I could handle. So…. let her be a Jersey housewife, she fits right in with the rest of the manure. Works for Andy the Jackhole, so why should I care, right?

    So, the blame game continues off camera? Why am I not surprised? Personal responsibility is going the way of the dodo bird. Get a grip you D-listers. You simply are not all that, regardless of what Andy and his whoring production crews tell you. If you say it, do it, profess it, OWN IT and move on. No, wait…. that wouldn’t make great TV. Geez Bethenny, learn from these loosely termed women. Then you can be famous, too.

    Hi everybody, always lurking and loving this site. Been quite bored this morning so started browsing thru old stuff and came upon this. If anyone has any doubt about T not knowing about their finances, think again. This article was written way over a year ago. Conning taxpayers and hard working people for the cameras makes me want to bitch slap her!!


    • Squirrels says:

      Wow. Great find. How you gonna keep ’em down on the farm, now that they’ve met Bravoooooooo?

      Everybody sing!

      • MoDee says:

        I have a strong feeling that the Feds, IRS, etc. have been watching them for a very long time. LMFAO! Karma is such a bitch – you spend money on camera…the camera’s gonna bring you down.

        • dumberries says:

          Yep. I think the authorities know way more about these scammers than the viewers, and they’ve known for awhile – they let these fools hang themselves publicly. The Giudices will not get a “fresh start” bankruptcy and Joe may face criminal charges for the loan payback forgery. Looks like the system is working in this case. At least, I hope this is what’s going down.

        • Squirrels says:

          I had a brief vision of Teresa on camera at the local 7/11, stuffing ding dongs between her breasts.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Joe’s business partner went down – and Joe will be going down too – obvious business practices and large cash payments coupled with the moving of other funds would apply to them both. Add the fact that Joe forged his partner’s signature to keep the scams going…..petitioning for bankruptsy just put the microscope on a higher magnification

      • Great find indeed!! I love how Theresa snaps ‘it’s no ones business’. Um, when you file BK, it is public and it does become other people’s business.

        I found this episode fascinating, although I confess I fast forwarded through Albie, Lauren and Chris in the gym, yawn. There was just too much other stuff to get to! I was riveted by Danielle’s daughters and the contrast between them and Ashley. While the level of talent can be argued, both of Daniell’s daughters ‘have something going on’, while week after week we see Ashley not attending school, mouthing off like a 12 yr old and generally being a total loser that up until the summons never had any consequences for her actions.

        I can’t wait to see next week. I think Danielle is positively diabolical in pushing these womans (misspelling intentional!) buttons, then sitting back like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. She is ‘pwning’ them all, to use my son’s expression 🙂

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          lol we are a house of powning as well! The masters of disasters are all powning each other

    • Capiche says:

      Hmm..Jacqueline was once arrested for fighting. Why am I not surprised? This explains everything.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        What so Jacq is really pissed at Ashley because she pulled a classic cowardly move (come up from behind and pull someone’s hair)? Ashley has sooooo much to look up to in her mother – and Jacq knows it, which IMO she does nothing about Ashley’s disrespect towards her.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          That’s one of the MANY reasons why I don’t buy her story that she thought Danielle hit her mother. We are suppose to believe that she was so blind with adrenaline but for some reason didn’t charge straight ahead and confront her? Instead she slithers from behind and goes for a grab?

    • babykakes says:

      just read the article…WOW!

    • BamaBelle says:


      WOW! That is a GREAT fine. I find these 2 things extremely interesting…

      Dina Manzo runs Project Ladybug, a charity for sick kids that claims to be a nonprofit. The IRS said it was not tax-exempt, meaning that donations are not tax-deductible and there is no public accountability of spending. An accountant for the charity said it had applied to the IRS to get that designation.

      The fifth housewife, Jacqueline Laurita, confesses in a video on the show’s Web site that she was once arrested for fighting but does not disclose details.


      Well-Well-Well… It looks like Miss Dina and Miss Jacqueline aren’t so sweet and innocent after all!

      Why does Teresa owe a Fertility Clinic money? Does anybody know? If she had to have help conceiving her 4th child, how riduculous! Isn’t 3 enough when you’re that broke?

    From the story “Alex — who is also a new People Magazine blogger”. First Bethenny now Alex, I wonder who else?

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Watch the two videos. Alex talks about Bethenny, Teresa and Jill. It’s a good interview. Alex comes across well.

      • Squirrels says:

        I enjoyed the interview. She is not snarky like Bethenny, but her approach is thoughtful and quite adult. ZARRRRRRRINNNNN, are you listening?

  15. Capiche says:

    I actually liked RHONJ last night as well. There were some truly LOL moments like the Manzo kids with the exercise – reminded me of my siblings – when Joe and Chris were talking about money (maybe it was just funny to me) and the whole Danielle explaining to her daughters why she was wearing the ring scene. I know some people saw it as crazy, but that’s the funny kind of crazy I like. And let’s face it, who doesn’t try to look their best when their ex is showing up with his new wife?? If you have to break out the seven carats to do so and flash it in her face…well…we’ve all been there! But that’s the kind of crazy – we’ve all thought it but not actually done it moments – I like about the real housewives show.

    I can’t really say much about Teresa the pig and her money problems that haven’t been said by EVERONE ALL OVER THE INTERNET! But that ring totally looked fake. And the whole setup was cheesy to me.

    Jacqueline really has her hands full with Ashley and it’s too little too late. I am beginning to believe that Jacqueline has condoned this type of behavior before. I just wish she would admit she’s just pissed off that Ashley is in legal problems because of Danielle. She keeps bringing up Danielle’s past as a reference point. The fact that she’s doing so should tell her all she needs to know.

    Was Caroline in this episode? Don’t remember.

    • babykakes says:

      Danielle said that she was saving her ring from her ex hubby for Cristine when she got engaged…welllllll..wouldn’t it be up to the fiance’ to provide her daughter the ring, maybe an heirloom from his family? how presumptuous of
      her…(excuse any misspellings please)..

      • emt2 says:

        I think that it is actually nice of D to want to save it for her daughter. Many of my girlfriends received engagement rings that had once belonged to their man’s mother or grandmother. It’s always nice to pass along jewelry if you can.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        While I agree the general expectation is that the future husband provides the engagement ring, I don’t think it’s within the reach of most people to provide one that is 7 karats. Perhaps D was offering up the stone so that Christine and her future groom can select a setting of their choice, either way it was a thoughtful offer.

        I’ve always been under the impression that as far as heirlooms were concerned that women’s jewelry is passed down to daughters while men’s jewelry is passed down to sons. I know if I had a son, I wouldn’t be giving him sentimental and passed down pieces of jewelry to give a F-DIL even if she was delightful. They would be for my daughters- and future grand daughters.

    • MoDee says:

      IMHO, even if he’s current on child support payments, seriously what kind of parent can choose 1 out 2 children to go for custody of?? How could you even think of splitting up those 2 girls? If he’s gonna sue for custody, get them both the hell out of there!

      Since I don’t know about this…does having money automatically make you stupid as I’ve seen on these shows?

      Sorry, just ranting a little bit here. I feel better now.

      • Zoey says:

        Hm, maybe they are not both his?

        • anitabee says:

          Well Christine is his because she looks so much like him. Jillian too, looks like him and she sure as heck does NOT look like Danielle.

          • babykakes says:

            thank G*D the girls do not look like their fuguly

            • emt2 says:

              You really hate Danielle, don’t you! lol

              Jillian looks like Danielle and her dad.

              Christine looks more like her dad but at times favors Danielle.

              • BamaBelle says:

                I think Jillian looks a lot like Danielle. When the camera is showing a full face view of Danielle, I can see the similar features in Jillian, plus her dad. But, Christine looks exactly like her dad only much better looking, LOL!

              • babykakes says:

                can’t hate someone i don’t know,
                just think she is in desperate need of psychological help. i also think she is far from good looking, ugly really, & hope her daughters do not grow up to look like her! that’s all..

      • Dwight Schrute says:

        Don’t go after him going for custody of only one child. We don’t know what the situation is. There could be any number of reasons why he is only going after custody of one child.

        If (and I’m purely speculating here) Danielle is going all over the place managing her daughter’s modeling career, the younger child may be getting lost in the shuffle. If Danielle is following her daughter to assignments in Europe, it’s entirely possible that he may feel the younger daughter needs more stability. Also, a lot of minors with careers go through emancipation. If the older daughter is going through (or has undergone) this, there would be no need to seek custody of here. There could be any number of reasons why, valid or not valid, why he would only seek custody of one child.

    • Quincy IL says:

      It sounds like he is a better man than I thought he was. I was happy to see Christine give a huge hug to her step mother too.

      So Tom Staub buisiness went under too. It must be chaos in NJ.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Maybe one of the children asked him to sue for custody and the other wants to stay with her mom. Just guessing.

        • Capiche says:

          Or maybe the whole thing is not true. I read the article. Couldn’t find the source and custody fights are public records. Articles like that, I take with a lump of salt.

          • emt2 says:

            Exactly. Seems like a lot of BS to me. Just more fodder for the Danielle-hate campaign.

          • twoile says:

            I read somewhere that one of the children requested to b w/Dad…..4 what that is worth as I have no source.

  16. Capiche says:

    Also, the Jillian singing scene. I actually think Danielle had a better voice but Jillian is young. It was very touching and she does have a gift for songwriting. There’s money to be made there. Just ask Kandi! And I know some people were put off by Danielle encouraging Jillian to sing…I thought the editing made it look Mommy dearest (there’s a part in the bedroom scene where you can totally see how it’s cut to appear that way). But I actually have no problems with what Danielle did. Jillian apparently wrote the song and wanted to perform it but she was prohibited by fear. Which is natural. I am a firm believer in parents pushing their kids to meet and exceed their potential. (Note the word potential there!) A lot of times kids want to do things or have the talent but don’t allow themselves to do it because there’s no one there encouraging them and building their confidence. Jillian may never be a singer but because she overcame that nervousness she will always remember that she once performed in front of 300 people. She was even happy that she did it at the end.

    And as I said last night, I know some of us really hate Danielle and we all know she’s crazy but it’s absurd to think that because we do, her kids must hate her or think she’s crazy as well. Or even her ex-husband. He was married to the woman for almost 13 years! (I also think Danielle is better looking than his new wife, but that’s for another discussion.) I think she’s a better parent than some of the others on the show and for those who say her kids turned out good “despite” her, just think about that statement for a moment. Does that even make sense? Children learn what they live. Not what we see on reality tv!

    • Squirrels says:

      “Children learn what they live. Not what we see on reality tv!”

      This may be true, but many, like Bethenny, chose to walk away from her upbringing and succeed on her own. I won’t comment on Danielle’s girls. Off limits in my book.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      I agree Capiche…I deemed that situation similar to Caroline encourage Albie not to give up on his dreams being a lawyer. I do think it came off looking Mommy Dearest but you know how tv, especially Bravo, likes to frame things for dramatic effect.

    • emt2 says:

      I completely agree.

      In my mind Jacqueline is the worst parent on the show. Well, worst parent to Ashley because it’s clear that she thought Ashley messed up her life since she had her so young. When Chris came in to rescue J, I’m sure J was relieved. I see J being so much nicer to her two young sons because they were actually planned and hoped for and they have a loving extended family that loves them. It’s obvious that the Manzos don’t really embrace Ashley (well now that she is doing their dirty work they do a bit).

      And what about the example that Teresa sets for her girls–be spoiled little divas and look for happiness in material things that will get repossessed one day?

      • twoile says:

        The two younger children are male & that also makes a difference.

        • emt2 says:

          kinda of. It’s clear that Ashley was unexpected and seemed to ruin the youth that J and her ex-husband wanted to enjoy. I’m sure Ashley feels hurt that she didn’t grow up in such a nurturing and financially stable environment. She has always acted out. Don’t forget that Auntie Caroline has admitted to not really knowing Ashley/liking Ashley even though Ashley has been apart of her brother’s life since she was 5 years old.

    A 50+ year old woman with her skirt so short you can’t practically see her ‘screaming cat’ only it’s so old it probably looks more like Grandma Wrinkles- and her ridiculous stiletto heels.

No mention of that ring, though!!! Of course, with that out of the way she is then free to criticize Danielle…. Ugh where is a barf smiley when you need one?

    She is really giving Zarin a run for her money…. JZ should send her a gift basket!

      OMG! She is claiming that over 1000 people are showing up at her book signings and they have to close the streets. What a liar! She is trying to compete with Bethenny AGAIN. A couple of weeks ago, Bethenny had over 400 people at her book signing and a few days later, Teresa claimed that she had 600 people at her book signing. Last week, Bethenny had 1600 people at her Skinnygirl Margarita signing and now Teresa is claiming that she gets over 1000 people at her book signings. Give me a break! *Rolls Eyes*

      • Lovebeth says:

        It does not matter how many people showed up all the money will go to pay her creditors soon. She knows she cannot compete my Bethenny.

      I think T & J’s situation is more like that of Enron where they were essentially running a sort of Ponzi scheme & cooking the books until the bottom fell out. & then the “no fault” bankruptcy approach was their preplanned easy out.

      Which did & didn’t work so well for many of those involved. Remains to be seen what happens with T&J. Bottom line: what they say or claim really doesn’t matter, what the court rules does.

          I can’t believe that no only did she try to chalk all this up to ‘rumors’ but that pretended to be completely unaware of them.

          I also read info on TWOP that explains why they probably undervalued all their items. Supposedly, they are as part of the bankruptcy (if it doesn’t get tossed out) they are allowed to keep 5K worth of belongings. By low balling everything’s cost, it means more items they can hold on to.

    Did anyone catch a viewers question to Bethanny as to who is more crazy (or dangerous?) Kelly or Danielle. Bethanny said Danielle.

    I disagree. I am surprised that Danielle doesn’t stand her ground and fight back. She has a complete victim mentality. She screams, runs and hides. From who Teresa? Danielle is in better shape and I say could take her. Jacqui too. I just don’t see Danielle being physically dangerous.

    Now Kray-Kray Kelly on the other hand. Wow. We all know she was arrested for beating up her ex-finance. Then on the Virgin Island episodes when she lost her sh*t I got scared for the BRAS. And I know they were scared too.

    For the record, after Sonja calmed Kelly down and Bethannny stop trying to get through to Kelly, Kelly finally sat down and was quiet. I thought oh crap it looks like she is going to pick up a knife and kill everyone in that house including the Bravo camera crew.

    So Bethanny if you ever get locked in with Danielle and Kelly, start running and throw Danielle into Kelly’ path. Kelly is out to get you.

    She might want to skin you and wear you like last year’s short Tunic.

    I loved Bethenny’s dress. You have to have the right complexion for that color and Bethenny looks great in any color.

      I almost liked Danielle in this episode. She didn’t make the party all about her, like she did at the luncheon. Also, I think she was smiling and laughing and dancing for a few seconds there. You don’t see much of that from Danielle. She should lighten up more. Also, clearly she didn’t get along with the Dad from earlier episodes. I thought it was mature of her to invite him.

What’s wrong with her fambly (I especially include her Aunts Caroline and Dina)—don’t any of them have the power to influence this girl into shutting her piehole?

    • Earring Girl says:

      The “family” is too busy being “thick as thieves”.

    • Oh my word!! That dumb ass should be counting her lucky stars that she is on TeeVee at ALL!! What an ungrateful human – talent, ambition and brain-wise she has the aptitude to be digging in trash cans, no offense to those down on their luck who are digging through trash cans. Snark aside, as a human being I really hope she wises up some day. She has access to an education and opportunities that other young women would kill for. Ugh!

    • emt2 says:

      Ashley is right that she didn’t get a big head because she already had a BIG head. Doesn’t Richard Lawson call her “hat” or something like that? lol

  30. Squirrels says:

    Good golly mz Molly. Seems our dear Kelly is at it again. She just retweeted the following. Perhaps in the hope we will see her for her true authentic self.

    I know we’ve already seen this, but for her to retweet it for her fans? Someone call the fire dept. I think her head imploded and it isn’t pretty.


    • Zoey says:

      She tweeted it herself?????? Does she think it’s flattering? Strange…

      • dumberries says:

        She probably walked away from the interview thinking she’d nailed it, but was actually devastated to realize she’d blown it again. Every time something like this pops up in print, Kelly likes to “exploit” it so it looks like she’s clever and cool enough to laugh at herself. When she contradicts herself like that on film, she claims to have been “acting” for our entertainment. 12 year old defense mechanisms. You trip in a crowd full of people and quickly proclaim “I did it on purpose”. She’s sadly funny.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      Kelly will retweet anything that has her name in it. It does not matter if it is favorable or not.

      • BamaBelle says:

        LOVE Betty White, too.

        What an incredible career and an incredible WOMAN. It’s unbelieveable that’s she’s 88 years old. Can you imagine still working at her age? I still watch re-runs of the Golden Girls, LOL!

  32. Rabble Rouser says:

    Ass-ley blocked me on twitter- and her mommy stopped following me. That’s two (dodo) birds with one stone.

    • Zoey says:

      Congrats! Kellamity blocked me, but did you know you can still send messages. You can still go to their page anytime, you just won’t see the crap they say automatically, ha!

      Oh, and Jac sent me a DM and told me in all caps to ‘go to my room’. I gave her a bit of being-a-mother advice.
      I told her I was already in my room. Should I go somewhere else??

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I knew you could still see twits by going on their page- but I didn’t know I could still reply. I noticed you can’t DM someone unless they are following you. I tired to reply to Jac’s last DM to me and noticed she stopped following me- because it would allow me to reply.

        Jac has DM-ed a few times- the last was about how ….

        She was going on about how on TV D makes it seem like the Christine and Jillian’s dad isn’t around when he is always at their events.

        I replied and said that Ashley also has a dad who we don’t see on tv but that doesn’t mean he isn’t available

        she said

        “The point is Dlies about him never being involved when it’s a fact he is.There’s more 2the story u don’t know.&yes Ashley has a great Dad ”

        Not this again, why do they feel the have to keep reminding us that D lies- and why aren’t they more worried about keeping track of their own (lies).

        • Zoey says:

          Yeah, I think Jac has issues. Maybe she’s unhappy and takes it out on Danielle. What the heck kind of example is she setting when she constantly tweets about D, yet demands her daughter not say anything about D.
          Kids are sponges!

          I know a lot of people can’t stand Ashley, but I just feel so sorry for her. Hard to believe her dad is in the picture and great; they sure hide everything about him well.

        • emt2 says:

          Assley clearly has daddy issues. Why is J even talking about D’s ex and his involvement with HIS children? I wonder what kinds of things J’s ex-husband would say about J. I also wonder how great of a father he is to Assley.

          To me, it’s clear that Ashley doesn’t feel love from her biological parents because they each remarried and had new families at an older age. Ashley was their mistake and doesn’t get treated as well as the new kids. That’s what I think is the root of A’s insecurity, anger and need to act out and remind us that the Manzos are her family (not really) and that she has a boyfriend who loves her (the girl doth protest too much) and that everyone should hate Danielle (because A is sick of everyone hating her–her parents, her classmates, her bullies, etc.)

  33. MrWestVirginia says:

    Why does Joe kiss Teresa the way he does? They barely touch lips and then he seems like someone told him to kiss a rotting dead corpse (although that would probably be better).
    When she gave birth to their fourth kid, and they kissed in the hospital, he wiped the lipstick off his mouth quickly.
    If I were lucky enough to have a wife, or even a girlfriend, I would not be ashamed to give her a big ol’ smooch on the lips, but some of these husbands act as they don’t like their wives. I notice that Bobby Zarin does the same thing in some episodes.

    • Zoey says:

      Just guessing, but it’s probably one of two things:

      Either he doesn’t want to get razor burn, ya know, after she shaves her face it can be a bit rough.
      Or she has told him NOT to mess up her make up. Even with a peck he probably comes away with a ton of ooey gooey lipstick. Ick.

    • boston02127 says:

      @MrWestVirgina–Luckly you never have to kiss Jill or Teresa. When you do get a wife I’m sure she won’t be like either of them. 🙂

    • Quincy IL says:

      Bad kissers… rotfl..

  34. Squirrels says:

    Last nights episode was rather revealing. Joe knew they were in financial trouble and did one thing he backed out of on their honeymoon. Fly in a Chopper. He was obviously uncomfortable, hence the champaign. He tried very hard to make it a special night for his wife, to his credit. Yet, I can’t stop wondering what the hell T got Joe for their 10th aniv. If we are to believe the show, he got nada. This brings us to the real Teresa, a gold digging, gimme gimme wench. Using sex as a bargaining chip is so not cool.

    • dumberries says:

      I read Teresa’s blog today. It pissed me off. The very first episode of the first season I was scratching my head wondering how these two had ever earned enough money to afford their lifestyle – they just don’t come off as smart for two seconds. I figured they’d inherited, but then Teresa explained about Joe’s success and I felt kinda bad for judging a book by its cover. Now, we all know, they probably never were legitimately successful – just scammers and money launderers always spending more than they earned. So, to read her comparing their bankruptcy to Disney and Walmart’s early financial struggles (and demanding that they too deserve a clean slate), and then calling Danielle a fake seriously pissed me off. Teresa, with the IQ of an ape, thinks she’s smarter than everyone else. She deserves the fall she’s about to experience.

      • flippy says:

        dumberries I always enjoy your posts….so don’t take this the wrong way…but I think comparing Teresa’s intelligent to an ape is an insult to the ape.

        • dumberries says:

          Too funny flippy! I posted an apology to apes at the very same time you responded to my post. LOL!!!

      • dumberries says:

    Like Lynn, I did not know who the other woman on WWHL was. She seemed dull-witted, definitely not funny, and I wasn’t sure why she was even there.

    Bethenny looked slightly unkempt, and seemed off her game uncomfortable-I think it was that lady sitting next to her acting like she had a stick up her ass, instead of a bun in the oven.

    Who is booking these people? #epic fail.

    • Squirrels says:

      Rachel is an SNL cast member. She’s also pregnant and according to the show last night, will give birth live for Bravo. I’m just not sure who is the shark. The woman splaying it all or Bravo for grasping at straws. Did Andy think Bethenny was going to go ghetto on her ass for taking the limelight? Dream on Andy. You are still an incredible and full blown ass.

      • MickeyMouth says:

        I think the giving birth for Bravo was a joke.

        • Squirrels says:

          Then I’m completely confused. Why was she on? What relevance?

          • MickeyMouth says:

            I think she’s one of Andy’s New York friends like Ripa and Barkin.

          • Fabulous Earth says:

            Why was she on??? Are you serious? Same reason Seinfeld, Barkin, and any celeb is on – to discuss the show, duh!

            The birthing for Bravo was a joke people (thinking it was real was a true “Kelly moment”, lmao!).

            Rachel is on SNL. She’s a comedian/actress. If a celeb agrees to be on, I don’t think there’s a “does she pass the worldly famous and beauty test” committee to determine if it should be so, lol.

            She was very knowledgeable about HW and funny “enough” since B was there. (Rachel is hilarious on SNL by the way). She’s a nice lady.

    re: Jacqueline– I get the feeling she acts a lot differently in front of her husband. I think when Jacqueline and Ashley are alone they both act like immature morons and feed off each other.
    Also, the fight happened about 7 or 8 months ago. Why is Ashley bragging about Chanel? Who’s buying her Chanel? So much for laying down the law and sticking to it. She has a car, lives free, eats free, laundry is free. No school. Her step father got her a job in NY as a intern. She doesn’t have an ounce of responsibility. No wonder she’s a torn down mess at 19.

    I could be wrong and would have to go back and watch again to be sure but I don’t care that much (lol), I don’t think Danielle mentioned the other women at all. Jac, Caroline and Assley on the other hand, conversation all about Danielle as per the usual. Teresa didn’t talk about Danielle but only because she was too focused on the gift she would get like the greedy, selfish, credit criminal, bitch she is!

  39. AZ Girl says:

    First post, long time lurker. I just read Teresa’s blog on Bravo.com. There is NO WAY Teresa wrote that blog. She is not that articulate. It is not her “voice”. When you read Ashley’s blog you know it is her because how it is written. Obviously, Teresa has someone handling PR just like JZ.

    • dumberries says:

      I got the same impression. No way Teresa is well-versed in the early financial history of Walt Disney and Walmart. She’s in PR damage-control mode. (But, the slams on Danielle were all her’s.)

    • Teresa has a blog translator …
      Teresa: This bandrisey, bankputzy, ?????, thing we’re doin now is cause Joe made some bad deshishuns an the econmy got real bad.
      Translator: Due to the failing economy, we found ourselves in a financial situation that could only be resolved in bankruptcy, much like Sam Walton and Donald Trump.

      Seriously, her blog is tripe and most of the comments are outlandish. This chick and her ape man flat out STOLE materials and labor from hard working people. I just don’t understand the sheeple who are excusing her.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I don’t think that Teresa can be the author of those blogs. She is standing near a window getting a dress fitted while talking into a recording device and someone on the other end is translating Teresa’s version of English into grammar that we will understand.

      • Char212 says:

        It’s bad enough that she is comparing herself to Walmart and Disney but when you think she didn’t change her spending habits after filing that gets me. She still pretended to have all kinds of money and put on airs like she was somebody. I’d like to see the house they lived in before they built the mansion. I don’t believe they ever could afford that house but because Caroline, Jac, Dina and even Danielle had big fancy schmancy homes she wanted one too. Teresa reminds me of the kind of person that wants everything she sees that someone else has. I absolutely believe she copied Bethenny’s skinny title because she saw how good it was working for her.

  40. boston02127 says:

    I just watched the attack on Danielle again. (yeah i know –head examined) Ashley claims she thought Danielle hit her mom. No. Ashley was standing there near her mother and they were both watching Danielle crying in the bushes. When Danielle came out of the bushes, Ashley went for it. Ashley was within feet of her mother before she went after Danielle. If she was so worried about her mother that was the perfect opportunity to see that her mother was ok. Jacqueline didn’t have a hair out of place and was acting calm.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Yup! And I wish folks would stop supporting that lame ass story when footage is right there for them to see. Her move was calculated and not made under any kind of duress. She saw an opportunity and waited for the right time to take it. Ugh!

      • MAMAZ says:

        That maight have been a good time to ask her mother if Danielle hit her. What a crock.

        • boston02127 says:

          Exactly and if I heard someone hit my mother (which would never happen because she’s nothing like them) I wouldn’t be able to get to her fast enough to see if she was ok. I wouldn’t go get “even” first.

          Also this was one of Ashley’s tweets the other day:

          mom just fell out of her chair !!! LMFAO!!!!! priceless…

          She laughs when her mother falls? Then she publicizes it on the internet to embarass her.

          It reminds me of the generations of upper class Chinese girls with bound feet. They never walked.

  43. Bravo fan says:

    Hi All,
    I had to share this with you all, not sure if there was any mention of it before. Remember when Joe and T were in the helicopter? I thought it was hilarious that Joe said “Look at that park” when they went over NYC. The pilot said it was Central Park. I could not believe neither Joe or T new this living so close to NYC. I mean how stupid can you be when they just passed the Statue of Liberty. I could see an out of towner not knowing this, but come on……

    • HD says:

      I caught that too. I mean how stupid can you be. “Oh there’s a nice park.” Ummmmmmmmmmm it’s only one of the most famous parks in the United States!

  44. Quincy IL says:

    I read the article on Danielle’s husband and his pregnant second wife. I had read a while back that Danielle was the one who filed for divorce. This article indicates that he had an affair with wife number three. Can you imagine how angry Danielle was when she discovered that? If she is mad at the NJ Housewives for some name calling, I can imagine that wife number three must have been afraid for her life. Have you ever watched the Betty Broderick story? Danielle had the house, the credit card, and the dream life taken away by that beautiful young woman. I’m sure she went over the edge when that happened. Wearing that engagement ring at the birthday party is another volley in that war, trust me on this. Danielle is not the kind of person to accept a loss gracefully.

    Those beautiful and intelligent girls live at ground zero. Danielle will keep an iron grip on them as long as she can.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Quincy-I read the book “The Betty Broderick Story”. What a coo-coo she was. She didn’t stop. The car thru the front door. Trashing the house. I do have to say thou, her ex-husband and Linda weren’t very nice to her either.
      That divorce was a nighmare. I felt sorry for all her kids.

      As far as Danielle, I’d move out of town if she were mad at me.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Danielle and Betty have a number of characteristics in common.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Really? I’m sure on some clinical analysis of their behavior you are probably right, but I am having a hard time connecting the two.

          While Betty was surely wrong for what she did and gave into her anger, she is still somewhat a sympathetic character. She is the embodiment of every first housewife’s fear, that no matter what a dutiful wife and mother they are that their husband will trade them in ‘for a younger model’. That some other woman will reap the benefits of their sacrifice and perhaps someday inherit what was intended for their children.

          Tom Staub found Danielle on a stripper pole-and the had an affair with her; on that level she seems more like Brodrick’s second wife.

    • MAMAZ says:

      I just read Danielle’s. I’m confused. She says the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is close to her heart because of her beloved adopted mother and her six adopted brothers. Is she saying that her mother or one of the brothers had/has CF? And now her mother was beloved? Hasn’t she said terrible things about her mother in interviews? Didn’t she blame her for not stopping the alleged sexual abuse? I could be remembering incorrectly though.

      • DesertGal says:

        No, you aren’t remembering incorrectly. Danielle absolutely blasted her adoptive mother repeatedly. Now, all of a sudden, she is “beloved”?

        Bizarre woman.

      • HD says:

        No you are right. Although I have read that her story has changed soooooooo much about her upbringing. The way it reads is like all of her brothers and her mother had (has?) CF. Also her blog is stupid. It is just one big commercial for companies that gave away free stuff so they could basically have a huge commercial via the show and her blog.

        • Quincy IL says:

          I’m sure the shout out and the step and repeat were part of the deal. Who has a step and repeat for a birthday party?

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      Teresa acts as if we’ve never seen an episode of RHONJ. Does she not remember the obscene amount of money that she spent on furniture and clothing??? We saw it. It’s not a mystery.

      The thing that is disgusting is that are families like my sister-in-law’s that had to file bankruptcy because her 5 year old has had about 4 years worth of cancer treatments i.e. medication, chemo, stem cell transplant. They didn’t file because of them spending obscene amounts of money and then trying to hide $$. No, they filed because an illness cleaned them out. That is why I have no sympathy whatsoever for Teresa and Joe. Not only did Joe and Teresa spend obscene amounts of money after they filed bankruptcy they STILL spent tons of money. There is nothing funny or cute with their situation. It is disturbing. Also, for Teresa to blame it on the economy is bullsh!t. I’m sorry. It’s just another excuse instead of taking responsibility for her actions.

      ****I say we all tweet Bravo Andy to have Teresa take responsibility for her spending. I want to say they are filming the reunion in the next week or two. I want answers.

    • dumberries says:

      Exactly. And, think about what it takes to rack up $11 million in debt. Even if you deduct the house at its high estimate of $5 million, that’s a lot of reckless spending on either (a) tons of little stuff over a long period of time, (b) some very big ticket luxury items for appearance’s sake on the show, or (c) both! Totally irresponsible know matter how you look at it.

      • TEB says:

        I’m curous: Do you intentionally buy things before you declare BK so you get the stuff “without paying?” Your debt is higher *but who cares* if you are filing. thoughts?

        • Zoey says:

          I think they look at the timeline of purchases, like say within the last 6 or 12 months. They look for that.

          • flippy says:

            That is generally considered fraud in bankruptcy. There is a 3 month look back and a creditor can object and generally succeed in their objection if the debtor “loads up” right before filing bankruptcy.

            • Zoey says:

              So I wonder if this applies to T & J?

              Also, how does it work if you file bankruptcy, and you keep spending money but not paying any creditors like they are doing?

    • She compares herself and Joe to corporations that employ thousand of people and produce paychecks for families.
      If Joe and T had more than one or two employees, you can bet she’s be crowing about that, but she isn’t-I wonder if Joe uses cheap illegal Aliens when he needs workers?
      Its an insult to hardworking employees & familys of companys that have been granted bankrupcy protection.
      If Joe’s business was helping anyone besides himself and Teresa, that would be worth considering, but believe me, they would be mentioning that if it was a fact.
      Something is waaaay off with the math there btw. There is no business with an 11 million dollar overhead where the only salary is the CEO/owner/president, and that salary only comes to $79,000. Even construction doesn’t have those kind-of numbers.

      • Quincy IL says:

        There were at least 3 people working in Joe’s office when Teresa brought the kids in to bother Joe. They must be on a bread line because I’m sure that Joe doesn’t care about paying his share of their unemployment insurance right now.

            I checked. Kiki is no longer following JZ, but JZ is still following Kiki. Most recent #FF are on top and I checked all the way to number 100-120 and I gave up but JZ is still following Kiki.

            Something tells me Kikik realized JZ was using her. All Kiki needs to do now is make one of those videos unleashing the fury on JZ and how she manipulated her and also apologize to Bethenny and we will like her for a few minutes after than she is fair game again.

    • Quincy IL says:

      That is fascinating. Maybe, she was upset that she wasn’t invited to one of Jill’s fabulous beach parties.

  49. Lovebeth says:

    It is easy. I think JZ is worried as hell about not being asked back on the show and Kiki is nuts, that is why she is hanging out with the Jersey wives now cuz they are “popular”.

    This is the most interesting thing I’ve seen:


    Very interesting on the subject of Teresa’s denial. I am a bankruptcy lawyer and have been watching the news articles about the bankruptcy with interest. Joe and Teresa would likely have a chance to make an offer to the Trustee to “buy back” the items up for auction. It appears this is what Teresa is referring to by the “legal wrangling” back and forth. If they make an acceptable offer the Trustee is willing to accept the auction may, in fact, not take place. The devil in the details is what will the Trustee be willing to accept not to go forward with the auction.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      That is confusing, I know bankruptcy is a confusing process but if Teresa and Joe have enough money to buy back all of their possessions, why wouldn’t they be forced to use that money to pay back their creditors?

      • Quincy IL says:

        Perhaps, the same people that give Teresa and Joe 10,000 per month want to make sure the kids have their Teddy Bears.

        • flippy says:

          I agree it can seem confusing and the Trustee has a right to inquire as to where the money is coming from to “buy back” their interest in the personal property. In my experience this question doesn’t get asked alot thought. The Trustees primary interest is getting cash into the estate to pay out to creditors. Alot of my clients do seek help from relatives to make such an offer.

      • BamaBelle says:

        I agree, Lynn!

        Here is what a fan wrote Teresa at the bravo website…

        T, everyone deserves a second chance. My husband and I also had a great business, and had to file after the economy tanked. We also got to keep our house and assets, but I know exactly what you and Joe are going through and it’s not easy to do what you had to do.

        I just want you to know there are those of us out there that understand it isn’t about personal spending, it’s about the business not doing well, and that can eat up all your personal money and assets within months.

        You’ll get through it.

        I understand bankruptcy. I understand this is hard times for a lot of people (including my husband’s remodeling business). I also understand people need a second chance and sometimes the hardest working, ethical people have hardships.

        BUT… what I don’t understand is how right in the middle of bankruptcy can you go on unnecessary shopping sprees for clothing and furniture. How you can throw a lavish birthday and house-warming party. How you can buy diamond rings? How you can open 3 new businesses, including having the money to remodel all of them. How you can say you only make 79,000 a year, yet, live in a mansion worth several millions. How you don’t have the money for a car payment and insurance, but you can spend like there’s no tomorrow.

        We are having very hard times, except we don’t owe millions. We don’t do many of the small things (like eating dinner out) like we use to. Every dime that comes in goes for bills and necessary things. We’ve had to cut way back, but Teresa and Joe haven’t! I don’t understand why people buy her bullshit? I think they’re hiding assets and money because they are stinking CROOKS. I think they are BIG-FAT LIARS when they told the court “relatives” give them thousands a month! Teresa and Joe are not to be confused with the honest, hard-working people trying to pay their bills during this economy!

        AND, if you are broke/bankrupt, how can you buy those things back from the auction? Why didn’t they take that money and pay some damn bills?

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      What happens if the bankruptcy gets chucked out of court? How do the creditors get their money? Can they put a lean against her future book?

      • flippy says:

        You don’t usually see a Chapter 7 bankruptcy get dismissed. The Trustee is not trying to dismiss the Giudices case. The motion/complaint I looked at is a 727 complaint which is to deny them a discharge. Basically that means he will liquidate what he can lay his hands on and distribute it out to the creditors. In the end the debtors do not get a discharge and the creditors can then come after them for any balance owed on their debts.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Thank You, you are certainly a handy member to have here right now. 🙂

          Can I ask, who handles the allegations of the fraud charges? With all this ‘cash’ the Guidices seem to be handling, does the trustee contact the IRS and report their suspicions?

  53. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    I don’t know if my comment will make it on Teresa’s Bravo blog, but here it is. It makes me feel better to post it somewhere :).

    You mentioned the “economy” as part of the reason for your filing bankruptcy in this blog. One of the major problems and a HUGE reason why people were so bad off in this economy is because people like you spending WAY above their means. Spending $100k for furniture while your yearly income is $79k is ridiculous and plain wrong. Spending thousands on clothes while only having a $79k income is ridiculous and plain wrong. Asking for diamonds for your anniversary while in serious debt and making only $79k is ridiculous and plain wrong. Lots of tax dollars will be spent and creditors will be stiffed by your fiscal irresponsibility.

    Lastly, I can guarantee you that Walt Disney and Sam Walton did not forge their signatures on a $1 million loan and pocket the money like Joe did (a fact). Funny how you filed for bankruptcy days after the legal judgement against Joe. Putting yourselves and the Disney/Walton names in the same sentence is ridiculous and plain wrong.

    • MAMAZ says:

Oohhhhhh, Teresa’s blog made me so mad. I addressed my comment to another poster who wondered why Teresa could spend so much money on her stated income…

        To: Disenchanted Viewer

        The reason Teresa and Joe can live so lavisly on the income stated in their bankruptcy papers is because they LIED about their REAL INCOME. Who in the middle of filing for bankruptcy can afford to go on shopping sprees for their kids, throw lavish birthday and house-warming parties, and go buy a diamond ring for their anniversary?

        Nevermind, they have the money to start up 3 new businesses and remodel them. If you can do all that, then you can PAY your freaking bills.

        Teresa-what goes around comes around. Didn’t you call Danielle “Broke”? Yeah, you did! Ha!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Great post- but Bravo doesn’t seem to be letting them by on th eblogs. Funny, on the Bravo message board the sentiment seems to be the same as most of us are sharing- and calling BS on the two crooks.

          I love how the OC people can’t afford a home, but they use limos to go to parties. I think it’s because they become falling down drunks and don’t want that DUI.

        • Lovebeth says:

          I think Jeanne is on Thinintervention with Jackie not OC.

  57. Another thought on Teresa’s Bravo blog- the idea that it presents, that Teresa is not a complete moron, (and I mean no disrespect to mentally challenged persons-I really am personally ignorant about the politically correct currently acceptable terms), .the idea that Teresa has intelligence.
    What I’m trying to say, is that maybe the problem is that the woman does suffer from an innate lack of smarts.
    -That she is simply not capable, mentally, of understanding how to spend money to get what her family actually needs, instead of what she wants.
    And IF that could possibly be the problem, pretending that she is an author, a writer, etc., is really doing her more harm than good.
    Really this is the same problem I have with Kelly. Kelly really seems to have something seriously wrong with her mind, yet maintains that she too is college educated , published author, trend-setter…
    In Teresa’s case, she’s looking at serious criminal charges. The kind of thing that could ultimately land her in prison.
    Most mothers of 4 young children would be scared to death in that position-but except for looking a little stressed with ANDY on WWHL, the comments, blogs, activities that have been attributed to her portray an overly confident grifter/thief…
    Really the best position for Teresa would be to come clean and say, she just isn’t very smart. She has a very low IQ, does not understand how to spend money properly…OH-and btw, she certainly isn’t capable of authoring a book, or even spelling half of the words in her Bravo blogs.
    I almost think my theory is closer to the truth than not-of course I could be wrong.
    But if it is, she’s really being done an injustice by whoever would maintain the false public image.
    If I were Teresa, and in the kind of jam that she’s in, and if I were not mentally handicapped, just greedy, or whatever the problem could be, I think I’d stick with the, “not too smart” image. Which is actually the image that many people seemed to find endearing in the first place.
    I wonder if Bravo is paying her for the use of “prostitution whore”, the words to the eerie music that played quietly in the background on WWHL last night?
    I guess we’ll know in less than a month, but I really do wonder how the reality & reality tv of all of this is going to affect Teresa & her children.

    • Quincy IL says:

      “Pay attention PLEASE!,” is the statement from Danielle that caused an angry verbal attack and a tossed table by Teresa. I believe that throughout Teresa’s life, people have recoginized her shortcomings in intellectual ability and have told her to focus. Joe wasn’t interested in Teresa’s IQ, he liked her rear end. Her figure is back. There was a photo of Teresa in a bikini. Joe is content.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Teresa may not be an articulate, educated or morally centered person – but she knows that the debt they incurred was for the pretty things she needs to feel like she is successful in life. Surprise Teresa the way you racked up the debt by stiffing other people is not a reason for a fresh start! Four girls is not an accomplishment when what her husband wants is a boy! A mansion is not a home but it makes her feel good when she compares it to where she grew up. When you look at the crap she filled the house with – it probably means refined, cultured, old world class in her mind -all things she isn’t but feels she now has.
      Last night’s 10th Anniversary was sad to watch. She fed her kids lines to spew when she brought up the I wanna be wowed…with her four little justifications front and center! In real time we know that the financial shit has hit the fan and it does show on Joe’s face when he spoke with Chris…Teresa ignores their finances because that gets in the way of her fantasy world. Joe’s helicopter ride was interesting because of the honeymoon backstory. But dinner in a room in a Jersey hotel kind of says it all – he doesn’t want to be seen in public with her…..she can count to 10, she got a fake yellow diamond ring and we got treated to her straddling him on a bed with rose petals. And it appears they didn’t even spend the night as we were treated to a shot of the Mansion of Debtshire. Ain’t that nice??

      • BamaBelle says:

        LOL – WindyCity… I love your comments. Teresa KNOWS exactly what she’s doing. She likes to play the “innocent” role, like with the police… “Huh? I don’t know why you want to talk to me. I didn’t do anything. I don’t know what you’re talking about. Me? I don’t have a DL on me, get hers!”

    • alicia says:

    Theresa Guidice is laughing in our faces. Somehow they are working on a deal that will allow her to maintain some of those hideous treasures she has accumulated and more than likely she will be allowed to remain holed up in that 16 room monstrosity while the rest of us scramble just to pay the bills.

    There are enough idiot enablers out there logging into her blog offering words of cheer and support based on their low information habits of applauding the worst behavior because they see nothing wrong in rampant greed and thuggish activities. The lower she goes, the higher the applause meter in her defense.

    What is more troubling is the lack of awareness on the part of her “fans” to understand what the Guidice’s have done impacts the rest of us. They have scammed both the banks and the vendors in their “snatch and grab” lifestyle but lack the awareness attached to essentially “lay low” during this time of shame as their excesses and criminality are held up to pubic scrutiny. There is nothing to applaud here. Nothing to defend. Nothing to shrug off as just another misfortune blamed on the economy. These people were out to “stick it” to their creditors knowing full well what they were doing up front. Mortgage piled upon mortgage did not stop them from maxing out their credit cards and leaving local vendors holding the bag. This is not something to celebrate or excuse.

    You have to seriously question the attitude of those who find nothing amiss in the way this couple conduct themselves both in public and in private when their shady schemes are publicized and they continue to exploit their notoriety as if it were a big nothing.

  60. Lucy says:

    I lurk a lot, love to read all the blogs and get different perspectives!!! Love your play by play and the tweet additions!! Teresa’s attitude upsets me to no end. It is not that I don’t believe that people should never file bankruptcy, it is her attitude that it happens all the time and that it is no big deal AND their is no need for them to change their lifestyle. She takes no ownership for her problems. Teresa blames the economy and all bad investing. She wants her fans to believe it is all a business failure and that happens.
    “Dear Teresa if your business is failing you don’t keep spending personally like you are filthy rich and most people try to put what money they make back into the failing business in order to succeed.” Then again, talking sense to Teresa is a joke and probably why she is in bankruptcy court.
    Anyways, I so agree with you on Ashley, everything you said is spot on, Ashley is a sad case and Jacqueline has trouble on her hands. She may be an adult but no parent likes to watch their adult child spiral out of control!

  61. Olivia says:

    It’s a little late in the game to expect Jacqueline to have any control over her 19 yr old daughter. This girl is basically considered an “adult” at that age and her actions are purely her own.

    However, what can be done is to pull the rug out from under this nitwit and insist that she pay her own way if she wants to be seen as a grown up. Cut off her access to credit cards, cellphone, computer access, and all the other miscellaneous “treats” that she surely is not able to afford on her own. She still seems to be living at home and enjoying the perks afforded to her by another person’s income.

    At this point it seems pretty obvious that this illiterate dunce is sitting back and pretending she is a viable “star” in a horrific series that has managed to confer upon her a status she does not deserve. Bravo has awarded this simpleton a further opportunity to stave off doing nothing beyond “twittering” her hatred for Danielle Staub which in the real world counts for zero achievement.

    Jacqueline need only to cut her loose from the financial support that exists which will have more of an effect than maintaining a stupid blog filled with nothing but tirades involving Danielle accompanied by a series of senseless “ha ha’s” that are illustrative of her lack of education and smarts.

    Standing on your own two feet is the first step to adulthood. As it is, she will forever remain a hapless teen too stupid to realize that she has started down the path to nowhere.

I wanted to know when Teresa was going to take any responsibility for her actions i.e. starting the fight with Danielle, fiscally irresponsible, etc. It’ll be an interesting reunion.

  63. Olivia says:

    What began as a series showcasing a group of women “friends” in NJ has ended up being one of the worst efforts by any network to capitalize on the sleaze factor that is now running rampant throughout the culture.

    In watching prior episodes, I think I may have found the “key” to the animosity that exists among this disparate group of famewhores which has led to the disgust so many of us feel.

    I think that both Jacqueline and Danielle had at one time been friends. I gleaned this much from past interviews. They had known each other from the beauty shop and developed a friendship which seems to have existed for about one year prior to the show going on air.

    I am assuming that during that period Jacqueline probably divulged secrets of the Manzo family to Danielle. In turn, Danielle more than likely revealed some of her past to Jacqueline. Jacqueline, acting as the conduit between both camps, more than likely let slip some of Danielle’s past transgressions to the Manzo’s who themselves have been trying for years to live down the “hit” on Tiny Manzo and have been trying to rise to the level of “respectability”. Hearing about Danielle’s destructive past, they wanted to put distance between themselves and her shady life.

    The series goes into production and the Manzo’s are “stuck” with sharing screen time with Dirty Danielle. The pressure is placed on Jacqueline to sever ties with her. She balks. And I think the reason she did is because she knew full well what she herself had openly admitted about the family to Danielle and was fearful of the repercussions this could have should Danielle spill the beans.

    For her part, Danielle did just that. Holding fast to her “friendship” with Jacqueline, and knowing the disdain that the Manzo family had for her, she began to spread the secrets around the town which got back to the Manzo’s. This makes sense because how many scenes were filmed urging Jacqueline to cut Danielle loose? She kept backtracking and insisting on giving her “second chances” but I think the truth was that she feared Danielle revealing what she had told her in private.

    The Manzo’s were correct in their impressions of Danielle who turned out to be exactly what she was 25 yrs before. They had to have been told about her name change from Beverly Merrill to Danielle Staub in order to “google” her name and come up with the book which had been written years before. My guess is that Jacqueline led them to that discovery since Danielle had been living in the same neighborhood for years and apparently this was not a well known fact prior to the series start.

    So if one examines carefully where and how this “feud” erupted, I think it is safe to say that Jacqueline may have been the instrument and why she allowed Danielle to continue a “friendship” because of her own fear of what Danielle could reveal about her own big mouth. Jacqueline may appear to be “stupid” during those talks with Caroline and Dina urging her to break the bonds, but my impression is that she was guarding her own involvement in handing Danielle the “keys” to her own duplicity.

    This would also account for the “Dina feud” which may have been in part to Danielle revealing inside information on Dina’s life. What happened during the course of this series was that they soon discovered that without Danielle as the nemesis there was no “storyline” in the first place. Danielle’s striking back, her bizarre behavior, and the Manzo’s outright hatred for having to participate in this sham is what has driven this feud that Bravo perhaps had never countenanced when the series began.

    The actual “backstory” that they all continue to hint at is probably based on the gossip that Danielle, getting her information from Jacqueline, has spread about the family which has made them “strike back”.

    Just a thought.

    • error404 says:

      It’s hard to understand exactly what Chris sees in Jac.

      At any rate: Danielle is like an FBI mole, and she picked the stupidest, most malleable and easiest target to worm her way “inside”. Even if it’s just “crazy Danielle” playing at secret agent (cop w/out a badge, Puhlease!) it was tv genus. She made herself invaluable to the show by providing it’s only true plot.

      I have no idea, but I wouldn’t be surprised if D is a hero in Frankin Lakes. Seriously, after watching these 4 blow-hard showoffs go on and on like their shit don’t stank when in reality they are broke ass bitches with MIA hubbies, I really have to suspect that they are Frankin Lakes’ most hated residents.

        – Kim G showing more of her tush?
        – Caroline “crying”?
        – Juicy Joe learning to count to 10?
        – More of Jacqueline offering useless advice to Trashley?

        Let’s face it, bad as this series is, without Danielle there is nothing of interest beyond the thuggishness and lack of integrity that exists in most of these characters who desperately need a “villain” to make them appear relevant.

        Judging from the lack of material, they should be sending her roses every day of the week.

      • Blue Sky says:

        Maybe in the Franklin Lakes area they have people who hate them, but sadly in the rest of NJ (and elsewhere) Teresa & Joe have fans. They are a beloved “guido” example of NJ, the ultimate “land of the guidos.” What does it say about NJ that the reality shows Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, Jersey Couture, and of course T’s show RHONJ are hits. Makes me want to vomit!

        I live in NJ, most of my teenage son’s friends are Italian, & most of the time we are not living in the NJ portrayed by these tv shows. Still there is always the shadow of the mob (not just the traditional Italian mafia, NJ is full of gangsters from Russia, China, etc.!) and a storg “guidoesque” odor billowing about.

        Did anyone see how crowded the floor of the NY stock exchange on Wall St. yesterday, when the Jersey Shore kids (Mike the “situation” & Snooki etc.) rang the bell? Please believe me that there are many decent people living here in NJ, and we want T & J the greedy Giudices to pay for their fraudulent crimes.

        • Blue Sky says:

          * oops make that “stong odor”

        • error404 says:

          T&J are the end of an era, and their fans probably want to salute them as they go down with their ship. But such people are crazy if they think it’s not the end. The era of the McMansion is ovah, and it’s back to living over the pizza parlor for this demographic, if they like it or not.

          Does anyone, even himself, really think “the situation” has a long and fruitful acting career ahead of him? When you’re required to lift your shirt for each and every picture, you’re not being celebrated for who you are. Surely even he must realize he’s got 5 more of the 15 minutes left to milk this cash cow.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            Just the entire idea of a guy who has a face that looks like the dog chewed- is elevated to a pseudo-celebrity just because he has a 6 pack boggles my mind. Snooki is just a hair ball and J-wow looks like she just got off the stripper pole- Paulie D might as well be Richard Grieco.

            I honestly don’t get what the appeal is, to such a degree that I actually find it offensive. I refuse to watch S2 or S3 of this. I think MTV really went in the wrong direction with this show when they didn’t entirely re-cast it for new seasons.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          You have my sympathy – I know there are other people in New Jersey that are not like these idiots on Jersey centric shows. It has to be hard to raise kids when the bad behavior stereotype is all around you.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I think Danielle is going to tell secrets at the reunion. She is really angry. She’s hinted that she is going to share information several times.

      Dina left the show because she is afraid of what Danielle will do. I don’t think that will stop Danielle from outing Dina because Danielle considers the whole Manzo/Laurita Family as one entity and she is at war with that entity.

      • Scorpiosue1102 says:

        It makes you wonder if the Manzo/Laurita’s hate Danielle because of what she does or what she knows. Danielle may be crazy, but unlike Kelly, Danielle has some smarts.

        • Quincy IL says:

          I bet Danielle has a diary and she has recorded every word from every person who has spoken to her.

          I’d say another book is on it’s way.

      • Olivia says:

        From what I have seen of Danielle, she talks a big game but pulls back when confronted head on. She does most of her trash talking from her headshots or her blog but never face to face.

        Whereas Theresa will get right into it and allow nothing to stop her from reacting, Danielle is a sneakier type. Jacqueline is a passive agressive but Caroline has no problem speaking her mind.

        I doubt Danielle, faced with Theresa and Caroline, will say much beyond “hints” since she will not be able to control the response from either of these 2. Last year she drew back from Caroline’s suggestions of what she did by pretending she had no idea of what Caroline was talking about. She was virtually unable to defend herself besides feigning innocence to an event that became public months later.

        Danielle is filled with bluster and an overrated sense of self importance. Theresa, on the other hand, is no one to mess with. You are never sure just what she will do but I have no doubt that she would go after her physically if given the chance. Danielle knows this.

        • Olivia says:

          Danielle has a big mouth and I am sure she spreads a lot of information, along with misinformation, about these families all over Franklin Lakes. She is also a big fat liar which must have caused them to pump up the hatred another notch or two.

          She has used her ex husband as a punching bag and bemoans the lack of money for support, yet she has had more work done on her body than most people, including eyebrows patterned after the McDonald arches! Now we are being advised that yes, the Dad does take an active role in the lives of his girls, and yes, he does support them financially but had to rearrange the payment schedule through a lawyer because Danielle was spending the child support on herself.

          She was living in a lavish home, driving an expensive car, spending money on luncheons and parties while dressing herself in pricey clothes, yet she was claiming “poverty” status to anyone within earshot.

          She is about as credible as Theresa in this respect and thought nothing of denigrating the father of her children in front of them. They also attend pricey Catholic schools that he pays for along with the monthly child support. Not a bad deal for someone who has yet to hold down a full time job but has the time and money to spread all over Franklin Lakes on manicures, pedicures, breast surgery, Botox, and any other enhancement she feels the need to purchase on her own behalf.

        • Blue Sky says:

          Danielle is way smarter than her castemates. She has an excellent opportunity to write another book, detailing all she knows…so why spill it at the reunion? Plus as already mentioned, she does not like face to face confrontation.

          Dina left for a lot of reasons. I see her more as someone who dislikes confrontation, negativity, and let’s face it, her husband was against her filming. She’s also protecting her daughter, which shows what a good mother she really is. Perhaps seeing how Trashley is affected by the show made her stop & think. Since she left the show, I have a lot more respect for her!

          • error404 says:

            I don’t know about a book. I think Olivia is right, Danielle is calling their bluff. All she does is say she knows stuff, and *puff* Dina runs off the show like a scared rabbit and Caro gets all tough talk, but barely leaves the house.

            There are secrete. D probably doesn’t know any of them, but the Manzos are not taking that chance.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I don’t think Danielle is truly intimidated by any of them,the wound dove act is just that. D sits there all demure pretending like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth while watching the others unravel.

          It’s not fear that keeps D sitting there still, it’s something much more dark and sinister.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        As scheming as she is, Danielle is clever and calculated in her approach. The other HW’s keep on screaming about what D does behind the scenes, not only do we never get to see any proof of this but they never say what actually went on. It tells me that whatever was said or happened, it’s something that the Manzo’s and Co. don’t want us to know.

        Someone here once referred to her ‘knowing where the bodies are buried’ and I think that is true.

        D is 5 steps ahead of them- even with broken heel

        • MAMAZ says:

          Danielle has proved in the past that she is not all talk. She was and maybe still is capable of violence. But she is older and wiser now than Beverly Merrill. She isn’t really smart but she is cunning. She can’t pronounce the plural form of woman but she knows to do most of her dirty work off camera. She knows how to push buttons and how to pretend to be shocked and saddened by the reaction she gets.
          The rest of the NJ cast are the ones that are all BS. For all Carolines talk of “mess with my family you mess with me” what exactly has she done to put a stop to Danielle’s supposed off screen antics? Nothing. Dina walked away. Ashley pulled her hair and got Danielle quickly pressed charges. Theresa flipped a table. Jacq jsut keeps eating. Everytime Danielle pisses her off she shoves something in her mouth.The two Kim’s have caused Danielle more inconvience than any of the Manzo clique.
          The Manzo, Lauritas and Guidices are powerless against her because they want to keep up the pretense of being “classy”. Danielle doesn’t really care what anyone thinks as long as the money comes in. But she better watch out for Theresa. Of all the NJ housewives I think she is the one that could be pushed too far. Her fabulous world is crumbling. Everyone knows she isn’t the rich girl she wanted them to think she was. There isn’t much need to hang on to the image of “lady” anymore. She wan’t very good at it anyway. A person with nothing to lose is dangerous.

          • emt2 says:

            Applause! I agree with everything you said.

            Watch out for T. She is the most dangerous now.

  64. Judy says:

    Sorry if this has been posted before, some more quotes from the lunatic:


  65. Not that Crazy says:

    Crazy is at it again. See if it makes sense to any of you guys.

  66. Dani says:

    Not that Crazy, it makes no sense at all to me. This woman is certifiably crazy. I can’t believe anyone would want to interview her. I have no interest in anything she has to say or her life. I hope that she is not on next seasons HWONY or I will be recording it and fast forwarding though her scenes again. Do you think her and Jill are still BFF or has she been replaced with Caroline?

    • Char212 says:

      I don’t think anyone can stay friends with Kelly for too long before she drives them nuts. So no, I don’t think they are BFF’s. It wouldn’t surprise me if Jill thought that by hanging around with her she’d look sympathetic and gain some fans back. As far as Caroline goes Jill is probably just using her too.

      • Dani says:

        I am sure you are right. Can you just imagine the conversation that Jill and Caroline had? I am sure it was all about how Bethenny had wronged Jill. They both know every thing or think they do that I can’t imagine them being friends for long.

        • Char212 says:

          Oh I’m sure they ripped Bethanny apart. I can almost hear Jill telling Caroline her sad story about B and then Caroline telling her sad story about Danielle.

      • Lovebeth says:

        Exactly my point!

    • Squirrels says:

      I can’t help but believe Jill is up to something in chumming up with Caroline. Perhaps fear is settling in and she’s circling the wagons in her bid to remain relevant in New York. Maybe she wants to be seen as a “regular” gal who can hang with the homies. At any rate, I would guess her brain is operating on overload in her attempt to reinvent herself. Her ignoring Kelly makes sense in that Kelly’s brain is on permanent overload and who needs that?

      • error404 says:

        or it could be just short sightedness…. The NJ girls were there for a charity event. Jill was going to the Polo party. Teamed up, they each got press mentions twice. One for the charity dinner and one for the Polo party. With both NJ&NY housewives in the frame, the pic has much more chance of being picked up by gossip sites.

        • error404 says:

          Why did Caro stay chez Zarin?

          Because some poor slob wrote about it, getting their names in the paper one more time, and fools like us actually waste our time talking about it.

          And that, I believe, is the extent of their “friendship”.

      • Char212 says:

        I think you’re right Squirrel. Another thing, Jill loves being the center of attention and now that NY is over and NJ is on that’s her way of staying in the limelight and keeping her name and face in the tabloids.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Caroline is not happy with Luann. She said she was ignored three times and that the countess would not get another chance to ignore Caroline. How does that play with Jill/Luann team?

      • twoile says:

        Jill needs 2 B in alignment/friends in common VS Silex who reports that she is friendly w/NJHWW. They all have had meet & greets W/signings recently. Jz needs to break that up B 4 next season.

  67. viki55 says:

    Hi yall! I just saw that Harold Dieterle, the chief from Top Chief season 1, is engaged. Isn’t he the one that was supose to be dating Kelly at one time? Anyone know who he is engaged too?

    • Ellabean says:

      No – that was Sam from Season 2 Top Chef that “hung out” with Kelly a few times – he was eliminated in the final 4 in sea 2. Also tall – had the pony tail – very cute. Harold D was the winner of season 1 and was a bit of a nerd – not at sexy as Sam. But I can see how the two of them can be confused.

    • twoile says:


  68. Kelly-Has_Big_ Shoulders says:

    I thought it was Sam that had a thing with Kelly?

    • viki55 says:

      Oh okay! Thanks. I guess Harold reminds me of Sam.

    • error404 says:

      It was Sam. And by “thing” I assume it was just two fame whores using each other for 15 more minutes of fame.

      Kiki has already proven that she keeps her “real” life off of reality TV, but thinks nothing of going on fake dates with fake boyfriends for tv. That’s because she is genuine and has integrity.

  69. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Only took Teresa two days to talk about Bethenny and her WWHL comment. From Twitter:


    In any case, if anyone is kicking anyone’s a$$, it should be @kimbarnouin author of “Skinny Bitch” b/c she was out way before @Bethenny no?


    PS- I love love LOVE @kimbarnouin & @Bethenny so no fake Twitter feuds… (even tho I’m sure B’s sad my book outsold hers in 1/2 the time)


    I’m fiesty today huh? But you know I’m KIDDING! I kid! Especially when I’m stuck at a secret Bravo thing in NYC for hours and hours… xx

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      And the first one that I missed:

      When “Skinny Italian” went to press, @Bethenny ‘s only book was called “Naturally Thin.” They’re both great books, but totally different…

      I had to tweet her “Naturally Thins” whole title:

      Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting

      • Char212 says:

        She’s such a loser. I tweeted back asking her why she doesn’t post recipe’s on her website like B does then I said “oh right, you need the money from book sales lol.”

    • error404 says:

      so, “secret Bravo thing” is:

      a) Andy asking her to be present when Bravo films the auction of all her stuff
      b) Bravo meeting with their lawyer about them trying to sell off all of the stuff Bravo gave them for the show: ATV, furniture, etc…
      c) An intervention
      d) Andy asking her how Bravo keeps only her and Danielle for Season 3 without the 3 Manzo girls taking a contract out o him.
      e) Bravo inviting her to an event so that papers can be served

      multiple answers are possible.

      • dumberries says:

        She’s just so subtle in her attempt to intrigue us with the “secret meeting” tidbit, isn’t she?. She is truly a combination of Zarin and Kelly.

      • Ellabean says:

        f) just the standard pre-reunion taping meeting


        h) her attorney is negotiating for more $ for next sea- you know that’s not a stretch at all. Jill prob gave them some tips in the Hamptons as to how to go about it.

        • Char212 says:

          I HOPE there is NO next season for them

          • error404 says:

            well, considering that it was the most boring show know to mankind, yet broke ratings records, I think a s3 is inevitable.

            apparently there are millions of people who want to spend an hour of their life watching morons throw food at the wall. sad, but true.

            I refuse to watch the show. It’s the only stand I can take. lol

            • dumberries says:

              Me too – I watched episode one and called it quits. From the number of promos they show on Bravo and the info I get from this blog (plus the fact that it’s the same storyline every week), I feel like I’m completely in the know without having to watch it and contribute to their ratings coup.

        • Lovebeth says:

          Bravo won’t negotiate for more at this point because they know Teresa is desperate. She can leave plus Danielle is the lead actress here.

    • HD says:

      I don’t think it really matters. People have been tossing Skinny on anything or years to sale stuff. JMO

    • Lovebeth says:

      Bethenny does not care about this fool. In a way she is kissing Bethenny’s ass about the “no Twitter fued” what a loser. If her book sold in 1/2 time, why is she not paying what she owe?

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        I don’t think Teresa is telling the truth when she claims that her book outsold Bethenny’s book in 1/2 the time. She does have a tendency to lie, just recently Teresa claimed that she didn’t file for bankruptcy and she said that her property wasn’t going to be auctioned off. Bethenny’s book was on the NY Times Bestseller List for 6 months. Teresa’s book made the list but I think the book was only there for one or two weeks. Teresa is trying to compete with Bethenny but she will always come up short. Teresa lacks intelligence and business sense.

    • Katie says:

      T-bag needs to learn that just b/c you say something doesn’t make
      it true. There is not an entity that tracks all book sales. Many publishers do not release numbers or they are inflated. For instance they don’t look at books sold but rather just those printed.

      I found an interesing review of t-bag’s book that was flattering, however she mentions that it is unfortunate that t-bag refers to danielle. Really t-bag? I think someone has a crush on danielle.


      • tuzentswurth says:

        OMG, why would she have negative references to Danielle in her cookbook?????? What a whack-job! Now I thing she is stupider than I thought…….and I already thought she was dumber than a stone. Pure Trash, that one.

  70. Ellabean says:

    Did anyone notice in Monday’s NJ episode – when Joe gave Teresa the anniversary ring….how stubby her fingers were ? They were odd looking.

  71. Ellabean says:

    Question: does anyone know Teresa’s birthdate? Month-day-year ? I know she’s about 38 – but I am curious as to the exact date.

    • Ellabean says:

      Found it on Wiki:

      May 18th – 1972.

    • Char212 says:

      According to Wikipedia her b-day is born May 18, 1972. UGH that makes her the same age as my twins (who btw are a lot smarter then she is)

  72. Olivia says:

    The only “positive” I see coming out of any of these misguided series is that in a year or two from now no one will even remember their names. Pffftttt!

    • dumberries says:

      Except for Kelly. Years from now, we will still all be glued to our computer screens watching her work from her home office via her live stream feed. I can’t wait – just know I’ll be charmed by all the amazing new back door learning opportunities I’ll pick up and be able to apply to my business.

  73. Quincy IL says:

    This is a bit much:


    The writer of this blog suggests that state authorities should be called about Danielle’s treatment of her daughters. I always thought she manipulated them, but they seem to be resilient. Teresa and Ramona tried to push their kids too. Think the nose job on Ashley wasn’t to help her in her future career? All of these moms are pushy.

    Some kids can take it. Others collapse. I’ve personally know 3 intelligent kids who committed suicide because they could not stand up to demanding parents. It’s the ultimate act of cowardy and defiance.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t think the writer was suggesting that state authorities be called in regards to Danielle treatment to the children.

      I believe they were referring to what is happening now with the production of Kate+8, with only now after all this time- valid work permits are required for production. Now there are rules that govern this media such as limiting the length of time they (the kids) can be filmed- the hours they can be filmed, not to mention what can be filmed (they can’t be followed into bathrooms)- and perhaps the most important that at least some of the earned funds are set aside in accounts for the minors.

      The whole reason why so many networks prefer Reality tv than traditional programming is because they get away with so much more.

  74. Ellabean says:

    Teresa’s Bio on Wikipedia:
    I know W is not always correct. But I found this entry hilarious:

    Teresa Giudice (born May 18, 1972 in Paterson, New Jersey) is a child of a couple who emigrated from Italy. She earned a degree from Berkeley College in Fashion Marketing and Management. After college, she worked in the fashion industry in New York as a contributor for Vogue magazine.

    Didn’t she say that she was a buyer for Macys’ (when defending her intelligence). Why isn’t that here? Plus that ” contributor for Vogue mag”. Hah ! Uh, I’d say she ran and got coffee for someone in a short lived gig as a temp. If she worked for Vogue as a contributor – than I am the creator of the internet(s).

  75. Ellabean says:

    Well drag me up the Garden State Parkway with no EZ Pass by my hairline:

    The NJ crapfest goes until Sept 6th and that’s only the finale on the 6th. They have 18 friggin’ episodes in only their 2nd season. No wonder they it’s gone to their heads.

    So I looked up:
    – NYC Wives 3rd season – was 15 episodes
    – OC wives 5th season – 17 episodes

    • error404 says:

      “Well drag me up the Garden State Parkway with no EZ Pass by my hairline:”

      well, that was just about what I was fantasizing abut doing to Terra!

      The 18 episodes does explain why nothing happens every week. It’s like 6 episodes worth of plot, stretched out like hamburger helper.

      • dumberries says:

        It also explains why there’s so much time devoted to the kids. Bravo signs up for 18 episodes based on the Season 1 ratings. Then, Lexi can’t play, so Dina essentially has nothing to do, especially if she won’t get into it with Danielle because she’s afraid of what Danielle might know (and spill). So, poof, Dina’s out. Now, they’ve got 3 boring women and the she-devil and like 15 more episodes. What to do? Bring in the 2 Kim ladies and beef up interest in Albie (snooze) and Ashley (yuck). Geez, by episode 14 they’ll be airing Jillian Staub playing kickball during 3rd grade recess.

  76. Kelly-Has_Big_ Shoulders says:

    Hi honneeees! This is my first post. Just thought I’d pass along a message from the big t-bag that she had to remove the discussion links on her facebook page. Apparently there was too much hate towards her fans. I’m sure that is the reason. Maybe there should be an honorary “I hate teresa blog”

    • vilzvet says:

      Now THAT is hilarious! The discussion boards were mostly ANTI-Teresa! She’s just getting tired of looking at them!

    • dumberries says:

      Welcome Katie!
      As of late, this is somewhat of an “I Hate Teresa, Too” blog. Jill Zarin, Teresa Giudice – pretty much the same thing. Lying narcissists that think they can knowingly hurt other people and everyone will believe their innocent victim routines because they’re just so adored and admired. Zarin had her rude awakening from the public, and I predict Giudice will have her’s handed to her by the financial authorities.

  79. Kelly-Has_Big_ Shoulders says:

    No I think Gloria lives in Boca Raton which she is also coming too. Coral Gables is in Miami.

    @ error404 ,LMAO!!!

  82. WindyCityWondering says:

    Just read that Teresa is going to host the auction at her house! Wonder if the Auction Company knows she plans on doing this? Does she think she can convince people to pay more for her stuff that way? Or maybe control who buys what so she can buy it back with their secret cash stash? So this is how she will rise above bankruptsy with her head held high? Who does that?!

  83. Earring Girl says:

    This is from Dina’s twitter yesterday and she speaks about being in the city today and it is top secret, hmmmmm…. –

    “I am thinking about doing “Dancing with the Stars” though. What do you guys think? xx”

    What, competing with Kate Gosling now? I’d pay to see this fool do a trip and fall on a step and repeat, nevermind on a dancefloor.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Squirrels–I just read that and was about to post it. I hope she does the show. Ohh, the laughs we can have! Notice on that tweet, it’s not a return tweet to anyone thou she’s posting as if she’s answering a question.

    • Char212 says:

      Oh say it isn’t so BLECHT. She can hardly walk straight let alone dance.

    • dumberries says:

      Say it ain’t so Squirells!!!!!!!
      Hopefully this is just Teresa trying to drum up interest so she can lobby the DWTS producers. If they actually approached her with an offer already, I’d be surprised. I don’t watch that show, but still hate the idea of this fool getting anymore exposure.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Maybe, Gia can show her how to tap dance.

    Ashley’s Bravo blog is posted. Here is part of it.
    Jillian, I doubt you are reading this, but I just wanted to tell you way to go hun! You did such a good job, and you don’t need to worry about anyone “judging” or “not liking” you. Forget them if they do. You’re talented and young, the world is yours for the taking. Keep it up! xo.

    Next part—-

    How many of you felt bad for Jillian in that scene of her with her mom? Isn’t Danielle scary? I felt so bad for Jillian, she looked like she needed a hug. I’m glad Danielle isn’t my mother. I hope her kids realize what kind of person their mother is before it’s too late for them. Christine is beautiful, and Jillian is talented. Neither daughter inherited those traits from their mother. They don’t need her, they have their dad and step mom. I hope they get away as fast as they can. That’s just my opinion though. I am definitely praying for them.

    In one paragraph Ashley is complimenting her the next paragraph she’s ripping her mother apart.

    • dumberries says:

      She’s such a twit! She’s not smart enough to realize that she is the one who is the most hard-up in the mothering department. She should run, but that would mean she’d actually have to fend for herself like other adults. These fools are making Danielle’s “those woman are out to get me” claims look like reality. They’re all nuts….

    • Char212 says:

      I have to disagree with Ashly. In a way I hope they never find out what kind of mother they have. No matter what, they love her, and for all her faults the girls seem to be well adjusted and happy girls. So what good would come of someone telling them (if they don’t already know) what she’s done and doing? And if they do know everything they still love her and you can’t take that away from them. They have to believe she’s a good person. What child wants to think their mom is the things people are saying about Danielle.

    Okay, so first T tweets about a “secret Bravo thing”. Then Dina tweets about it too, and mentions some of the OC ladies. I think Bravo might really be planning some kind of cross-over specials like we all joked about a few weeks ago. Put all these crazy ladies on a secluded vacation together for one week and watch the fireworks!

    • Maxine tweeted it about some og the OC cast as well-I’ll try to find it.

      • This was RT from Dina–> dinamanzo

        fun dinner with our crew & OC’s Gretchen, Laurie & their men. Very nice people! Another long day tomorrow in the city~top secret ; )

    • twoile says:

      I’d watch that providing it was only a few episodes. I expect it may lead 2 murder;)

      • dumberries says:

        @twoile, I’d like to see the 3 following interactions:
        1. Alexis explaining to Ramona about how a good wife should stay at home and live to serve her man
        2. Kelly lecturing Vicki about how showing her emotions all the time is “so high school 1979”
        3. LuAnn trying to persuade Kim that going out in a miniskirt sans panties and having her liner published all over the web was classless

  87. Adgirl says:

    I’d love to see all of housewives (OC, ATL, NJ & NY … DC?) locked up on a yacht or stranded at Club Med with plenty of chardonney, pinot grigio, beer and margaritas. They can play truth or dare. How fun would that be? Wait.
    We really need Bethenny there to call “bullshit!”.

    • anitabee says:

      That’s what MTV would do!

    • Lovebeth says:

      hopefully Bethenny would have her own cooking or hosting gig before we see all of them together. I feel bad for Bethenny that she is labeled one of the housewives. I would love to see Oprah’s OWN give Bethenny a cooking gig!

      • Scorpiosue1102 says:

        I would absolutely watch a Bethenny cooking show. I’m addicted to Food Network and Cooking Channel so bring it on!

      • dumberries says:

        It would be fun to see Bethenny as a guest judge on Top Chef or Top Chef masters too. Same network and it’s her area of expertise; could be a good stepping stone. (Though I did read that B accused Padma of snubbing her many times, so maybe Top Chef Masters would be best)

    • Quincy IL says:

      Weird though.. How can they explain perfect strangers from two coasts being friends? Their reality is so faux now.

      In the sci fi world, this joining of OC and NJ will cause a time paradox. If you thought 2012 was chaotic, wait until Danielle meets Alexis.

    • error404 says:

      sadly, Dina seems to be the only one who’s current dye job is even in the same basic color family as her natural hair.

  88. boston02127 says:

    Now that we know that Jill is friends with Caroline and they hang out with Gretchen and slimy Slade along with Teresa and Jackass. I’m wondering if the messages about “it’s a secret” mean nothing at all. Maybe they want to throw people off. I’m thinking this because of Teresa’s tweet—- I am thinking about doing “Dancing with the Stars” though. What do you guys think? xx—- We all know Teresa is the dumbest of them all. Her tweet has the word “though” in it as if she’s answering a question. She’s not, it isn’t a return tweet to any person or any question. Why use the word though?

    • dumberries says:

      It’s kind of sad to see so many women having their features altered. I will admit that Ashley does look better post nose job, but it won’t make her life any better unless she makes some serious internal improvements too. (The nose job did seem to mitigate the need for a chin implant Boston!)

      • vilzvet says:

        Her voice was definitely nasal and annoying, maybe she’ll SOUND better, we can only hope if we are forced to keep on hearing it. And wow, her real father is quite the hunk.

  89. TweetMaxine says:

    I have it on good authority that Jill Zarin will make a guest appearance on Bethenny’s show this Thursday. This will of course rile the fans on this blog but it should prove very interesting. Maybe Jill and Bethenny will finally make up? Watch and find out!

    • CdnFillie says:

      ROTFLMAO…it’s in the house

    • boston02127 says:

      Thursday is going to be a busy night! Jill will be giving birth to sextuplets. Kelly will be honored with two Nobel Prizes—in physics and chemistry. Stay tuned!

    • Lovebeth says:

      Really? Is this the same TweetMaxine that said Bethenny had a boy instead of girl? Thank you! Finally Bethenny and Jill will make up and we will all have a party!!!! and TweetMaxine I will give you $100 if it is true. Deal?

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      Sure, Jill will make a guest appearance on BGM along with Kelly, Teresa and Patti Stanger. It will be one hell of a show tomorrow night. LOL!

    • anitabee says:

      Oh, twatmax, thanks for the laugh! We find you so ridiculous that all we can do is get creative agreeing with you.

      Ummm…let’s see. Why don’t you tweet that Jill was offered her own E!reality show because she didn’t get asked back to RHONY for next season? MUCH MUCH MORE BELIEVABLE!

  90. MickeyMouth says:

    Here is Kelly’s portrait.

    Kelly “Bonaparte” Bensimon: http://wp.me/pWaBw-8D

    • dumberries says:

      It’s funny Mickey!!

    • Melanie says:

      OMG, Mickey you just keep getting funnier with each one. That belly shot wasn’t
      what I expected as I scrolled down. Still laughing!

    • anitabee says:

      Oh how right you are. Kelly would forget to wear pants to a battle!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      OK, I’m going to tweet it to her. If she wanders around my site she may not like the others I’ve done, but this one is tame.

      • anitabee says:

        Kelly will love it. She’ll be honored by your work!

        • Zoey says:

          Kelly Bony Parts, or maybe Bumpy Parts! The top half looks great. The bottom…..she’s just gross!

          Let us know what she says!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      She has been one of the more difficult ones to find a portrait to chop. I originally thought of doing
      Raphael’s Young Woman with Unicorn
      because of the unicorn, (I think Avery would look good in this one) but Kelly is a full on Monet. When paired with a more feminine portrait it doesn’t work. When I decided to do this one she just had to be in her bikini because Kelly never wears pants 😉

      • dumberries says:

        Mickey, I think a chop of Sonja as Lady Godiva would be beautiful. There are a couple of classic paintings from the 1800’s, not sure how difficult it would be to chop. Just a thought!

      • This is your finest work yet – the hand in the jacket along with no pants is so hilarious!

        • moriasheehan says:

          i agree, absolutely my favorite. she will probably love it, send to sonja to RT

    • tuzentswurth says:

      This is great, Mickey!!!

  91. Zoey says:

    Watching BB. I’m not familiar with all of them too much. I’m still mad that they don’t have a few older people thrown in the mix. They are usually more interesting.

    Rachel is gross, I can hardly look at her.
    Enzo is a (insert pol. incorrect word), can hardly stand to listen to him.
    I’ve forgotten the young kids name with the greasy hair hanging in his eyes, he was HOH week before last, but I don’t like anything about him.
    These people are gross and dullsville.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Zoey–I’m watching too. I can’t stand Rachael either. She’s discusting. That high pitch squeal she does after EVERYTHING she says makes me cringe.

      • Zoey says:

        Can’t wait for Criminal Minds after this, and it’s a re-run!

        How do you figure they pick these people for BB, of all the tons that must try out? They are just soooo boring. At least get a wise cracking jokester, or something! Remember Howie?

      • kats2 says:

        Ditto very bored with this group on BB. Such potential too.

  92. TweetMaxine says:

    I know there are many skeptics but eveyone will see that Jill and Bethenny have mended their relationship by summer’s end. My source at Bravo has told me that Jill has even been recruited to babysit little Bryn Hoppy. Bethenny has kept this a big secret until the end of the first season of her show.

  93. Dani says:

    I can’t believe that Bethenny or Jason would let Jill see Bryn let alone babysit.

    • Zoey says:

      And imagine if the baby spit up on her or pooped! Remember how she freaked out when her dog doo dooed on the carpet?

      If she did every babysit I think B should request she leave all the heavy duty tacky jewelry at home as a safety precaution. She could knock the kid out with those gaudy bracelets.

  94. Lovebeth says:

    I do not understand why people are saying Bethenny does not spend time with Bryn because she went to the wkd Polo event. Since when is a mother supposed to stay at home all day?

    • Zoey says:

      That’s just ridonculous! It’s healthy for a parent to have their own adult interests. Besides, to sit and judge on such petty matters is just a moron with nothing better to do.

      • Dani says:

        I would be surprised if Bethenny was away from Bryn any more than a mother that has a 9:00 to 5:00 job. It also sounds like Jason is home quite a bit of the time with her. I agree Zoey it is healthy for parents to have interests of their own.

    • nancy says:

      Who says the baby was not there. Nurse, nanny, babysitter could have been there. B. could have spent, the night or more, with Jason.

    • HD says:

      How old is Bryn now?

      I stayed home with my daughter until she was about 5 months. Bethanny is in between a rock and a hard place because the very nature of her job means she has to make appearances so her and Bryn and Jason can have a nice life.

      What it boiled down to for me was I didn’t have options. If Bethanny is a multi-millionaire I may stay home a little bit more and take time for me and the baby but I think she is trying to strike while the iron is hot with the show, the liquor, the book. She is just stuck. I guess she is doing what is best for her and her family.

      • Zoey says:

        It sounds like she does get to work from home at times, as she twitters this. Like today, she said she was editing from bed. Sometimes she talks about her and the baby napping. So hopefully she is finding a good balance while keeping her career hot.

  95. Lovebeth says:

    These are the people at Realitytea.com

  96. Lovebeth says:

    Who knows? It is interesting Kourtney was there with Scott yet no digs. I wouldn’t want my newborn in the media even if I love the limelight so much. To each its own.

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      Bethenny’s haters are going to criticize everything she does. She is allowed to go out and have fun every once in a while.

      • Lovebeth says:

        Exactly, the jealousy is so obvious. So sad. Some of them kept talking about how she wears the pant and that the marriage will not last. OMG only the man up there can predict something like that. If anyone deserves happiness it is Bethenny.

  97. Lovebeth says:

    I have been reading this blog for a while and just started posting but this Otay seem to have a lot of free time. Before it was Jill now because Lynn banned her she is turning against Bethenny?

  98. kats2 says:

    So I watched NJ HW, I did not read their Bravo Blogs (for some reason in my head this puts me on some higher ground – go figure that logic).

    Knowing that the same old bimbos are back filming in the OC, I’m sure that means that NJ HW’s are not leaving my TV any time soon. So here are my comments for anyone who cares to rehash the dumpster dive that is NJ HW’s.

    Well if Danielle is pressing charges again and the show can be entered as evidence these losers handed the smoking gun to whoever is representing Danielle. It’s playing out as a documentary of how Ashley ends up behind bars.

    I do give Albie credit and I’m trying to keep all my negative thoughts and snark about – all things Manzo’s to a limit. But I can’t. I think the Manzo’s made many calls, or called in many favors (The Sheriff, Bernie Kerik). You know to find out what connections they could use and what they could get for their crown jewel (yes Teresa Albie is an “Arabic” you ugly stupid piece of shit) Do I think Albie thought of this idea on his own and went through the standard application process – not a chance. The Manzo’s support and socialize with certain people for a reason, it’s how they roll.

    BTW – Albie don’t sweat the buzz cut, you’re going to be bald very soon, get used to it (first sign is that you hardly looked any different). But can someone tell me what happened to his eyebrows? He is looking very different this year (not as handsome or shiny as last year). Almost like he has Trichotillomania and took it out on his brows. He actually is morphing into a shorter version of that guy on Kathy Griffin’s show.

    I would also highly recommend Mommy toning down her Albie love – it’s starting to boarder on creepy. We get it, you love him and you are making it impossible for even the finest NJ princess to dare come around him. Please Albie crawl out of Mommy’s ass, grow some balls and man up. Lauren is the sibling in this clan to praise, I think she’s fabulous. But the whole family is actually boring to watch they think they are funnier than they actually are.

    Hey Caroline you big bitch – Danielle’s kids didn’t look “socially awkward” looked like great kids to me, perhaps you owe them an apology for that comment you made many episodes ago and should think twice about accusing Danielle as the person who went after the kids first. You and your I Hate Danielle Sidekick Teresa trashed Danielle’s kids first with that comment. I’d have more respect for Caroline if she ever could just once admit she is wrong.

    Perhaps it was just me but Caroline was not exactly warm and welcoming to Jacqueline when she walked into her kitchen, seemed cold. I wonder if these two are really ok or if it’s just a matter of time before Jacqueline is on the outs again with the Manzo sisters. I also think it could be that Caroline is just done with this show, I feel like she is doing it for her kids at this point, see what new opportunities it could bring them or something.

    Jac and Ashley – so boring all they have is Danielle, that’s it and they barely, can keep my attention with that topic.

    I have one nice thing to say about Teresa, the scene with just her daughters was cute. It was the first time her kids were polite and just normal vs. the typical shrieking and talking back. Unfortunately it was a short lived moment because Teresa and Joe entered the scene and well it all goes to shit.

    I don’t believe for a second that the ring Joe gave Teresa was legit. A. It was borrowed for the scene or B. It was a fake. In HW history it’s the first time a piece of jewelry was given as a gift on the show without any sponsors getting credit and free publicity. It looked fake just like the hag wearing it.

    Not that I wish any harm to any of them, I truly don’t – but you hear about helicopter accidents all the time.

    So much for Teresa’s “Skinny Italian” working. Joe is not lifting weights too much, the shirt fit in the arms just not in the gut. But nice try Teresa. Unfortunately Joe’s eating too much of your shitty fatty, carb infused food.

    I was very surprised and shocked that Teresa actually connected the dots to realize that no one but her thinks Joe is attractive. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder – for sure.

    Now for the cringe worthy scene of this or any season – Teresa mounting that jiggley, pudgy, broke ass midget Joe and riding him like Kelly rides that plastic horse in the middle of her living room. These two are nauseating. Animals have classier mating rituals. I actually wouldn’t be surprised if Bravo has them on film chasing each other around the marble mansion sniffing each other’s asses. The whole thought of them having sex makes me sick.

  99. alicia says:

    In the ads for this season didn’t they show the Manzo and gudiuce families traveling to
    Italy – maybe a cruise ? Did they decline to air it in light of both families financial woes ?? Also, didn’t Chris L. looked stressed when they had the conversation about theresa’s anniversary gift ? He repeatedly wiped his hand across his face. I think Jac L. is our next housewife who will be working. Chris looked very worried when Joe said ” The money ain’t flowin like it youse to”.

    • kats2 says:

      I think unfortunatley that we have many more episodes to go and that free trip will be part of it. Chris L always does that to his face when he’s nervous. good catch!

      • I think Jac could be distracted by a pie or box of pop tarts 😉

      • Chris’s business filed for bankruptcy too. That’s prob what the stressed look was all about.

        • alicia says:

          I feel sorry for Chris L. Jac is like be married to a teenage girl. Admittedly I think Chris is cute- if I had married an Italian ( I’m half-italian), he would be my type. If I had acted like Ashley there would have been SERIOUS punishment and restrictions. Chris is not strict enough but maybe he’s given up ?

    • error404 says:

      Ooh, maybe Kim2 could give Jaxs a salesgirl job down at Borscht

  100. Lovebeth says:

    I hope Teresa and Joe will have to pay their debts for the rest of their lives. She will be hawking everything beside that “faux Skinny Italian” book.

  101. Gretchen put up a ‘sneak preview’ of her new shop NBC line on her website…. I don’t begrudge her for selling crap, because I would do the same thing, but Lord have mercy those purses are tackilicious! The purses themselves aren’t too bad, most of them look like knockoffs of a Marc Jacobs bag in my closet but the logo is hideous!

    I have to confess, I like her though…..just won’t be buying.

    • Char212 says:

      I like Gretchen too. I think she could have done a lot better then Slade though, he makes my skin crawl.

    • kats2 says:

      O.M.G. Really? I mean really? Come on!!! Sure she’s not as bad as NJ, Jill or Kelly but she’s still pretty bad and haven’t you ever heard of guilt by association? She’s still dating scumbag Slade, that has to tell you something is not right.

      I was just going to ignore all of you and let you have your little Gretchne love fest but I couldn’t – you need to stop liking her very soon or at the very least don’t get mad at me when the season starts I snark on her a lot. Because I will.

      • Zoey says:

        I think she’s just as bad. She has written some really mean and nasty things about anyone who dares talk about Slimey owing the tons of child support that he does!
        It’s in what seems like public documents that he does, he’s on the public list of deadbeat dads, and that he was arrested, but he denies all this. He never shows any prove though.

        I also read that he gets his money from Housewives through her paycheck so they can’t take it from him to pay his kids.

        Of course who knows the truth, but multiple sources say the above, and only Slade and her saying it ain’t so. They give white trash a bad name.

        She should go pee on a toilet somewhere and take pictures. Oh, she’s done that several times. She’s such a publicity whore.

      • MickeyMouth says:

        LOL, I got your back Kats2. But, unless you all make OC sound interesting I won’t be watching. I quit NJ and I am quitting OC too.

        • kats2 says:

          MickeyMouth – good because there are people who love that chick. But I need a 12 step program and follow your lead and just stop watching.

      • After the last recap, I look forward to your snark! I don’t take any of this stuff too seriously.

        I do agree that the fact that she is with Slade does indicate that something may be off…..

      • tuzentswurth says:

        I’ll ride on the Gretchen is wretched bandwagon! I wouldn’t miss her a bit. She is phony, childish and boring.

    • boston02127 says:

      Gretchen —-a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Those purses are some of the ugliest things I have ever seen.

      Personally, I am getting really sick of the the hawking of the wares and shilling that goes on. Sometimes these housewife shows start to feel like I am watching QVC- and I HATE QVC.

      • tuzentswurth says:

        I won’t bother to look, wouldn’t ever consider buying anything to prop up her lazy ass.

  102. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Not sure if anyone is interested but I did a quick astrological chart for TMAN. It’s not going to be quite accurate because I don’t know the time of birth, but most of the major planets will be correct (sorry Lynn if it’s a little long):

    Sun in Taurus, Moon in Leo

    -You were born with the Sun in Taurus and the Moon in Leo. You are determined, often obstinate, and ambitious. You are very sensitive to offense, sometimes to an extreme.
    -Internally, you are warm-hearted and amorous. You want very much to assume a prominent position in life, and you should fulfill this ambition.
    -The Leonian aspects of you, ruled by passion, may hinder your accumulation of material things. At some point in your life these two forces will come in conflict. Yet it is within your power to resolve the problem and achieve a better integration of your personality.
    -You should check your temper, because you are inclined to anger, which can distort your usually logical and organized thoughts. These qualities can be compensated for by your good nature and general goodwill toward all.

    Ascendant in Leo, Sun in the Tenth House

    At the time of your birth the zodiacal sign of Leo was ascending in the horizon. Its ruler the Sun is located in the tenth house.

    -People with Leo in the Ascendant seem to possess a flair for the life of nobility and regality. Your life will be in many ways influenced by decisions you make that have been motivated by your pride, desire for power, for authority, and your need to convince others of your courage.
    -The course of events in your life will unfold themselves swiftly, and a life full of chance and circumstances will be the outcome of your desire to rule, to organize, to hold the keys of authority. You should be aware that as a result of overly strong impulses there is the danger of failures and upsets in life. You will be generally regarded as an amiable, sincere and generous person who, however, has much pride and sensitivity. Egocentricity is one of the prices of being born with the Ascendant sign of Leo. Another aspect of this zodiacal sign is that your personality becomes excessively charged with passion and sexual desire.
    -Willpower is a characteristic of your personality. You seek opportunities and when you find them you go to it, using both your mind and your emotions to strive for success with zeal and determination. You are very self-assured and you implement ideas with a self-assurance that lets nothing get in your way of success.
    -Leo will grant you very sincere and affectionate relationships in which you desire to bring happiness and an overall feeling of charitable spirit and warmth to your loved one. In your sexual relationships you appear as happy, strong, playful and even a little innocent.
    -You will always act better as a leader than a subordinate.
    -The Sun here denotes that there are great possibilities for honor and success in life and for obtaining privileged relationship from persons of power. During the middle age you will have the opportunity to experience the most important event of your life; one which can bring fortune and prosperity, proper means of earning a livelihood, and the ability to become totally independent and successful.
    -Your negative tendencies are arrogance and pride.
    -Your liabilities include an exaggerated pride, arrogance and a tendency to rely too much on your own resources.
    -Inwardly there are ambitions, aspirations, and thrift; properly projected these psychological characteristics could yield power, an image of pride, and a perpetual craving for material objects and worldly wealth.

  103. CdnFillie says:

    To everyone here..I hold you guys responsible. If it wasn’t for this blog and the crack me up comments posted on here..I would have never been interested in watching RHNJ. I would have checked out after the 1st episode. Now I HAVE to watch just to understand what you guys are talking about…((gotta blame someone)) 😛

    • Zoey says:

      What she said, me too.

    • kats2 says:

      Glad you’re enjoying it but I think we owe you both an apology .
      I wish I didn’t watch it, I wish I didn’t know the show or these people existed. Every week it’s right there in front of me, the world is going to end and these people are why.

  104. icantstandthetoxicity says:

    I read a transcript of a radio interview that Jill gave on 7/23. Most of the interview is boring because it is about her book but she makes some interesting comments about her future on RHONY. I don’t want to get my hopes up too high but she may not be back. It sounds like she is saying goodbye (crossing fingers). This is what Jill said:

    “I just want to say thank you to all the fans, and Twitter followers and Facebook fans who twitter me, email me, and contact me all the time. I try to reach back to as many as I can. And I love you for it. If it wasn’t for the show I wouldn’t have met so many amazing people. And I really love my life. And it’s really thanks to Bravo for giving me this amazing platform. You know it’s a one in a million. It’s the lottery. Me being on television. Getting on television, being on a successful show, going into syndication, being in 60 countries. I couldn’t thank Bravo enough for what they’ve done for me. But you know, sometimes the party’s over. And I’m not sure if I’m ready to go back into it again. So we’ll see. I have a lot of great projects on. I’m not going away, I have a lot of great projects that I’m working on.”


    • boston02127 says:

      Did Jill and Kelly bang heads? I had to recheck the first paragraph to make sure I had read it correctly and checked that this was Jill’s statement and not Kelly’s.
      Jill admited she tried to copy Bethenny and be funny like Bethenny and failed now she’s copying Kelly’s way with words. Ugg, I hate Jill.

  105. Lovebeth says:

    I started shaking my head when she was going on ” It is really thanks to Bravo for giving me this amazing platform. You know it is one in a million. It is the lotter…” grr She is full of it.

    If I were her, I would say something like this… “I know I had a terrible season but I would like another opportunity to sell Zarin bed lines etc” Honesty is the best policy.

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      I think Jill is worried that Bravo may not invite her back, she is preparing for the worst. We all know that if Bravo decides to invite her back, she would return because she really doesn’t have anywhere else to go.

  106. Lovebeth says:

    Boston, you read the whole transcripts? I got a headache reading it. Too much.

  107. Capiche says:

    Sorry to interrupt the regular programming but I just came on to say that I want a full rundown of pea puree-gate on Top Chef in tomorrow’s blog. If Lynn does one. I hope so! I don’t know where I come down on this. Could Alex be that sneaky to steal Ed’s food and pass it on as his own? He didn’t look innocent at all. Scandalous! But we were never shown what happened to Ed’s pea puree. There are cameras all around. There must be some footage of something. Was it left at the other kitchen? Was it lost under some boxes somewhere? Where is the damn pea puree? LOL!

      Steven did say that in the cooler is fish was on top of the pea puree. Pea puree’s don’t vanish. Something is not right. Alex overheard them talking about it in the room where they wait during deliberations. If it was me and I didn’t do it I would be in the other persons face because they would be attacking my integrity. The fact that Alex just sat there means he’s either passive or guilty…..in my humble opinion ;).

      I think it’s obvious that he stole it and I can’t believe one of the other two kept their mouths shut during the judging.

      BTW, another two challenges where Kenny isn’t even in the top 3, yet believes he’s god’s gift to food and was only in the bottom last week due to jealousy. Please miss thang, go get a job cooking for Jill Zarin. Delusion deserves to be quaranteened.

  108. I am really getting disgusted with Work of Art. The judges are full of BS, and as a 5th grade teacher I can spot it a mile away … All they cared about was a pretty woman on canvas, and Miles’ crap for some reason don’t stink to them even though imo he does. Mark telling his story about almost dying, and his and Peregrine’s portraits were my favorites and they were about the ‘theme’. I am so sick of judges saying “oh, you were too literal” because Miles just does whatever he wants (last week, he admitted he didn’t care about the theme he just recreated what he had already done). Sick of him, and sick of Jackie who thinks Waaaaay too much of herself. I am tired of diving for the remote on a prime time show because of the content of these shows. Call me a prude, but bs like this should come with an R rating.

  109. One more thing, I sent a post to Teresa’s blog that I know won’t pass through the censors. So I want to post it here so I’ll feel better:

    Teresa, you are a THIEF. You have stolen goods and labor from honest hard-working people who will sadly never receive payment and will probably end up in bankruptcy court as well. You are disgusting and classless and I hope your girls learn to pay their way instead of taking what they think they’re entitled to and being shocked when payment comes due. I feel for your girls, you and Joe really did a number on them.

    You don’t get to rack up $11 million in debt,then walk away with a do-over and sympathy from America.

    You are no better than Danielle, and never will be.

    I hope Bravo posts this as I know I’m not in the minority here.
