I Hate Jill Zarin Weekend Update- RHONJ Preview August 8, 2010
I know you all can’t wait to see the broke ass, bat shit crazy Teresa Giudice and her unruly family hit the road and infuse themselves into the Italian people’s lives. Around the world but particularly in Europe, American’s have a reputation of being rude, crass, loud and unruly. Personally I would like to thank Bravo for sending the Real Housewives of New Jersey and their family’s to Italy to intensify this impression of American’s.
Teresa, more than any other housewife, brings up her heritage and background of being Italian. Some of the comments that I’ve seen around the internet from Italian-American’s convey complete embarrassment by Teresa’s behavior. Some of her proclamations that she claims are of Italian tradition have been rejected as utter nonsense by most Italian American’s.
I am fairly confident that just as with the Virgin Islands trip on RHONY, this trip to Italy was bought and paid for by Bravo. Surprisingly enough, Bravo didn’t force Danielle Staub to go on this trip to Italy as they forced Kelly to go to St. John but there ya go! This Italy trip consists of Teresa and her family including her in-laws, Jacqueline and her husband, with Caroline, her husband and parents. I’m not sure how we have only Teresa’s kids and only Caroline and Chris’s parents. The group, in the previews, are in Venice and Teresa promptly tells us that the city is made from water. Bravo just loves to show us just how intelligent Teresa really is. They also love to include Juicy Joe yelling at her as much as possible – the “happy wife, happy life” Joe seems to have left the building. Maybe the DWI put him in a crappy mood….
More New Jersey controversy that was on the news months ago, Joe Giudice was involved in a car accident at approximate 2am on his way home from a restaurant. The news reported that a Housewives dinner included Jacqueline and her husband Chris along with Joe and Teresa having dinner with Tamra from Orange County. There was a charge of Driving While Intoxicated reported in the newspapers. We were never privy to why Joe was driving home alone when it was reported that Teresa had been present earlier at dinner. Why did Teresa go home early? Was Joe left with Tamra as some of the tabloids reported? Joe’s description of the events of the evening was that he was simply tired, yawned and closed his eyes for a few seconds causing him to veer into a bank of trees and slamming into a pole. I can imagine with all of that pizza making, he must have been exhausted, but to slam into a whole row of trees takes quite a lot of effort.
It just goes to show that Bravo needs to follow these folks more closely, no cameras were there at the dinner or in Juicy Joe’s car to give us the real story, we only see the aftermath and hear Joe’s side of the story. This differs a bit from the news reports of the police reports, but who’s counting?
A lot of information has come out about the Real Housewives of DC since the first episode aired on Thursday night.
The most rumors are probably about Cat who originally comes from a city just outside of London England, someone who claims to be a friend of Cat’s (soon to be ex) husband have commented on many blogs and articles. I’m not sure this person is a friend to anyone if they can’t keep their opinions off of the internet. The comments such as announcing that Cat was a former hostess and implying that Cat was an escort, saying that she is broke and fled London because she had legal and financial issues doesn’t say a whole lot for her husband. It is certainly making him look stupid while making Cat look bad, which is clearly the objective here.
These Cat haters (or hater) are also implying that Cat may not be legally able to work in the United States, however, I don’t see how that is possible because she would not have been able to be paid by Bravo (or its production company) without proper authority. The fact that she married an American citizen is actually enough, now if they get divorced, all bets are off. (maybe)
Coming in at a close second in the rumor department has to be Michaele. She has probably infuriated the public more than any other housewife in history with her off-screen antics. While appearing on The View, Whoopi Goldberg came out from backstage and touched Michaele lightly on the back and asked her to stay on topic. This small incident has turned into an insane topic of discussion all over the country as Michaele was said to have originally reported that Whoopi hit her. Later Michaele backed off of that story but what we do know is that Whoopi, upon learning of the “she hit me” nonsense went ballistic backstage and cussed out Michaele for the lie.
Most of us saw exactly what happened, Michaele was a tiny bit startled, not expecting it, but there was no vicious intent and Whoopi certainly didn’t hit anyone. In retrospect, I think most of us, including Whoopi wishes she had just stayed backstage.
Add that to her idiotic husband who thinks that it is perfectly acceptable to throw a drink at a woman, or at anyone for that matter. Michaele actually tried to excuse her husband’s behavior, blaming the reports that Lynda was spreading rumors about Michaele’s eating disorder then adding that Lynda threw a drink right back at her husband. I think if it had been me, I would have not just thrown the drink but the glass and all at the abusive asshole. This could all be a publicity stunt for the show but it is a pretty low class way of drawing attention to yourself.
