I Hate Jill Zarin                   RHONJ Preview / Jill Zarin             August 16, 2010

Thanks for all of the positive feedback on the last blog, I really am fascinated by Kelly Bensimon, she’s frustrating, funny and infuriating all at the same time.  Shortly after posting my blog yesterday that was about all things Kelly, we had a little twitter conversation: 

@kikilet:  @lynnNchicago I am so flattered than any nonpress person would take the time to blog about “reality”. $1 for meantweets. Get mean, give

@LynnNChicago  @kikilet lets see, calling @bethenny a ho-bag will cost you $10 and saying she’s not a chef will cost you $20 shall I go on? 

@kikilet:  @h8l8 yes I want @lynnNchicago to start a charity for all the housewives. She will feel good to give back. Go, lynnnn

It is interesting that Kelly is telling others to give to charity when all she does is tweet all day, she really does think that if she tweets the name of a charity, that charity is suddenly benefitting with a boatload of cash.  At not quite 39,000 followers, many of whom are most likely not on twitter on a regular basis, the few that may see her tweets most likely wouldn’t give to Kelly’s charity of choice.

Kelly’s idiotic idea of telling people to give $1 to charity for every mean tweet to her is just plain moronic but even if Twitter did charge $1 for every mean tweet to Kelly, it would be well worth it.  What do you suppose her goal is?  To get people to stop mean tweeting to her? Or to make money for charity?  Neither will be the result! 

Kelly’s newest endeavor, she’s got some poor graphic designer creating t-shirt designs that say simply “creepy” on them.  She’s asked for lime green and the designer has sent her several choices which are basically just different fonts of the word “Creepy” on a lime green t-shirt.  I’m not sure of the details but

@Kikilet:   XXXXXX   I could make 100 “creepy” tees and donate proceeds to charity. Give me graphics, and I’ll credit u and do it

One of the proposed graphics:  http://www.customink.com/designs/creepy5/wts0-000f-d5y3/twt

I know you all will be first in line to buy a Kelly “Creepy” T-shirt!

__________________________________________________________________________________

Tonight is part two of the ugly Americans from New Jersey take Italy by storm.  Again, people of Italy, I apologize for unleashing these people on your beautiful country!  Previews show that their behavior is no better off the cruise ship than on it but at least they were contained and only annoyed fellow cruise ship passengers who, given the size of that boat, could avoid the Giudice, Manzo and Laurita clans if need be. 

Previews show the New Jersey clan on a bus and we see another temper tantrum from Teresa’s 5-year old and more snipping between Teresa and her husband, Juicy Joe. 

You absolutely positively have to watch this preview video to really get just how utterly and completely STUPID Teresa Giudice is, from the volcano discussion, “it erupted hundreds and hundreds of years ago, or was it sixty?” to her trying to explain to her daughters what a bidet is in the bathroom, she can’t even pronounce it and Juicy Joe in his infinite wisdom calls it a “douche”.  Takes one to know one Joe!   I guess since Teresa is in Italy and cannot bash on Danielle, she chooses to attack her “friend” Caroline. 

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-2/videos/arriving-in-napoli

There is another one (video on Bravotv.com) of Teresa and Joe getting a couples massage, then Teresa excuses the masseuse to give Joe a “sex massage” but I don’t want to sicken any of you so I’m not posting the link, nope, don’t ask it is never going to happen!  Teresa, please, we do NOT want to hear you talk about or see anything remotely about sex from you again!  Why can’t you get that?  You can never un-see something, remember that!

The ladies blogs are full of nonsense, Teresa tells us all about the night of Joe’s accident and how she was with him at dinner earlier but her car was at Jacqueline’s house, blah blah blah.  I don’t believe a word of it.  I believe that Joe was drunk driving and slammed his car into several trees and flipped it over.  Maybe Joe was feeling left out since his wife flipped a table last year.  Teresa goes on to say how much fun the trip was, then to make excuses for all the crabbiness and crying that went on. 

Jacqueline’s blog returns this week after having gone missing for a few weeks making it even longer than usual, if that is even possible.  That woman is long winded….nothing shocking and no new information there.

One odd thing about Caroline’s blog, she included, and I quote:

“I need to address the babysitting scene. Teresa wanted to give her parents a break, and quite frankly, I understand where she was coming from. The trip was exhausting to say the very least, and even though they were there to babysit they needed some down time too. The girls were tired and cranky, and so was I! (Just as a side note, I was suffering with kidney stones throughout the entire trip, so my mood was far from pleasant.”

What?  “Even though they were there to babysit”?  Teresa’s parents were brought there just to babysit?  What about Teresa’s statements about them being from Italy and going back to their hometown and the family reunion?  These people were brought just to babysit?  I’m disgusted!  I don’t think it was Teresa’s parents who forced her to have four children, why the hell should they babysit?  Teresa goes on and on about how she does everything with no help, no nanny’s and no cleaning people.  Of course, that’s because she has the slaves that are her parents!  In the end, Teresa has a lot of nerve expecting anyone, much less Caroline with her kidney stones to watch her screaming brats!  It is one thing if the children are respectful and do as they’re told but Caroline was nothing short of abused by these kids!  Talking back and even trying to slap Caroline was absolutely inexcusable! 

No one is going to convince me that this was a fun family vacation!  Joe was a crab ass, most like for a whole slew of reasons, bankruptcy, drunk driving charges, unruly children, loud obnoxious wife, apparently sea-sickness, probable mistress in an apartment near the pizzeria, but I digress.  Caroline had kidney stones which are extremely painful and was rightfully crabby!  The four couples that were apparently brought along to babysit had to be a little cranky with the fast pace of the trip and having to babysit every time Teresa wanted viewers to think she was having sex with her husband.  (And that traumatic massage scene, seriously, don’t look directly at it) 

We see Joe and Teresa yelling at each other from the front to back of the bus making every person on the bus uncomfortable, Teresa’s 5-year old having another melt-down and I’m betting anything that the Manzo’s and Laurita’s were wishing they’d gone without the Giudice family.

Tonight’s episode is hopefully the end of the Italian vacation and we’ll see just how much fun these people had. I hope that Bravo feels that they got their money’s worth out of this group.  Is this series almost over?

‘Real Housewives’ star’s bankruptcy auction rescheduled for October http://bit.ly/aE3eSG

  #RHONJ Danielle Staub fired from season 3! http://bit.ly/9ZEmJz 
Lynn:  Personally, I don’t believe it, Bravo doesn’t even consider the cast for the following season this early in the game.  The new Season (3) will most likely happen due to the high ratings of RHONJ but there is no way they’ve decided on a cast yet.  (In My Opinion)

____________________________________________________________________________

Our old friend Jill Zarin is at it again, she’s been giving interviews and instead of just plugging her book and providing her take on what will happen for the next season of Real Housewives of New York, Jill decided to bash Alex McCord….again!  Take a listen:

Jill Zarin says she IS NOT a ‘mean girl’ http://t.co/MxVwwiE   as she goes on to be a mean girl right before our eyes!  Read the comments! LOVE IT!

Jill says that Alex started a rumor that Jill is a mean girl.  Is she kidding?  This isn’t a rumor, this is a fact and Alex certainly doesn’t get credit for saying it first!  We’ve beaten to death all of the mean things that Jill has done, Alex illuminated us even further in her final blog after the reunion show’s aired making it even worse for Jill.  On and off screen, this woman is the epitome of a mean girl! 

At this point in time when her future on the show is not secure, you would think that Jill would have some modesty and try to make things better with fans.  I don’t think she should kiss anyone’s ass in interviews, she doesn’t have to say she wishes she could be friends with Alex, I think we would all see right through that, but why even mention Alex?  If Jill had a tiny bit of sense, she would stop bashing Alex because Alex has fans, that is the bottom line and why would Jill want to further alienate Alex’s fans? 

I really don’t understand what Jill is trying to do unless she thinks that pissing everyone off, again, is going to secure her a place on the show.  Maybe it will, maybe she is an evil genius and she’s bashing Alex knowing it will get fans all riled up again and talking about her again.  She’s never done a mean thing to anybody?  Shall we pull out the list again? 

Hey Jill, do you know what would make headline news in the Real Housewife world?  A public apology to Alex along with an offer to make amends! 

Jill apologized to Bethenny and even in recent interviews has said that she continued to try to make up with Bethenny after filming the reunion and even has a gift for baby Bryn that she’s holding onto.  Bethenny all but told Jill at the reunion that she had no place for her in her life and Bethenny’s husband doesn’t care for you.  Without being anymore blunt than she already has, I think Bethenny is trying to spare what little dignity Jill has left and falls just short of telling Jill, “Go away!” 

Jill must know that Alex gained a lot of popularity last season, her fan base has grown and meeting fans in person with their book tour has only strengthened Alex’s reputation as a really nice, down to earth person.  Simon’s way of telling it like it is and his sparkling personality has increased the couples’ great reputation with fans! 

Jill says, “There are a lot of fun things I can do on the show that will make people laugh”.  This is the same Jill that thought the best scene of the whole season was the photo shoot with her mother and her sister.  She also thought the scene where she was making noises in the kitchen while her daughter was trying to study was funny.  She thought her snarky, vicious remarks that she made about Alex and Ramona at Brooklyn Fashion Week was funny.  So, do we trust Jill when she says she can make us laugh? 

Jill, do your homework and get a better PR person because you’re not helping with your horrible reputation the way you’re going at it right now.  Is this all a set up for next season where the feud de jour will be Alex and Jill?  Quite possibly, I guess we’ll have to watch what happens.

    Carry over – The one constant on this and the last episode is the ill behaved kids. Hitting one another, taking a swipe at Caroline. Screaming at the top of their lungs. Gia was the only sane one of the bunch, the baby doesn’t count. However, with Joe’s constant barrage of language and threatening not only Teresa, but the kids, I can see where this is coming from. It’s one thing to indulge your kids, it’s quite another to feed them the notion that foul language and physical threats are OK. I thought we got past that as a civilization. How wrong was I?

  2. Capiche says:

    Wow! So much to catch up on! First, Danielle got fired/leaving the show?!?! LOL! Bravo: Can you fire the rest of the NJ Housewives while you’re at it? Start from fresh! Can’t say that I’m surprised though. There were stories in the NY Post about her buying a condo in the city so I was wondering how she was gonna keep being on the show and not living in New Jersey? And isn’t her home for sale or something?

    Ok. So no Teresa auction until October? Bummer.

    This recent episode was a little dull for me. But next week’s looking up! 😉 I didn’t care about Danielle’s search for her mother or a panini. And there was just one too many Jew-dices for me to care. By the way, I thought that whole meeting up with the old family segment was worth about five minutes, but it went on and on and on….. Even the Danielle-country club chase scene was only 10 minutes. Bravo had nothing from that trip. Nothing!

    Except that I am now concerned that Joe is an abusive father and husband. What was up with all that kicking of butts/people/hotel employees? And that mafioso did hit them up big time if they got such a huge bill on incidentals. I guess they were boozing it up thinking Bravo was gonna cover it. Oh well!

    And…Happy Birthday, Lynn! (Hope I’m not too late!)

    T is acting more and more like someone who knows her hubby is cattin around and is looking the other way. I’ve seen a friend act like that only to find out she didn’t want to deal with the fact that we knew what we did about her ex…sad.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I have seen women go on spending binges like those that Teresa has each week when they know their husbands have girl friends. They figure that they want theirs. I hate that creditors are being hurt. My heart still goes out the the woman whose husband is owed 190,000 for work done on Teresa’s house. They woman stated in a comment section that they might lose their business with the loss of that much money. There are people being harmed by Teresa.

  4. CdnFillie says:

    hmmm….I just posted and it looks like it went to no man’s land again. Maybe it’ll reappear and if it does consider this post null and void 😛

  5. Squirrels says:

    I tend to agree CdnFillie. T is trying way to hard to get his attention. Something could very well be rotten in Jersey.

  6. Squirrels says:

    Caroline – “They ate like they were going to jail.” Prophetic perhaps? Best line of the episode.

  7. Squirrels says:

    Caroline – “They ate like they were going to jail.” Prophetic perhaps? Best line of the episode.

    Caroline in Naple’s restaurant – “They ate like they were going to jail.” Best line of the episode. Prophecy?

      Sorry, it’s still not working for me, so I’ll be sure and remove my duplicates when I can see my posts. I see your reply in my email inbox but I can’t see that here either. Maybe there are a lot of people on the site.

    Yes, as much as it is a really great calling card I wont be wearing a “creepy” t-shirt any time soon. Particularly since this is the kind of ice-breaker I imagine it would be:
    Handsome Stranger: So what’s creepy?
    Me: huh?
    Handsome Stranger: Your shirt. What’s creepy?
    Me: (nervous laugh) oh this? haha This is…well ..funny story..this woman on a reality show was telling another woman that one of her friends didn’t want to be friends with her anymore….aaaand this OTHER woman said “That’s creepy”. Sooooo..(nervous chuckle)…it was ..well I guess even if you were there it wasn’t that…anyway I got this shirt …haha
    Handsome Stranger: Yeah I have to go.

      It’s definitely the shirt, lolol!

    • LOL- that sounds like a convo with my husband when I try to explain to him what is going on drama wise in the show.

      He will hear a screaming match, look up from his computer and ask “What’s all this about?”- and when I start to tell him, I get about 1/2 through before he looks like annoyed and says he doesn’t care.

  20. Olivia says:

    I think if I had to be cooped up on that bus ride with those kids with Teresa and Joe screaming at one another I would have volunteered to jump into Vesuvius and taken my chances.

    That trip had to be one huge headache for all involved. And in God’s name did Teresa get those awful, awful outfits she dressed those girls in for the last supper? Hideous and with low foreheads the last thing they need are those frou frou’s she makes them wear. Absurd.

    The most telling piece for me was Joe lamenting the bill. Apparently Bravo did not pick up all the expenses for this trip and it is now even more insane that they went in the first place because they had just declared bankruptcy. The worst part was that we never really saw any of those numerous relatives or their homes as they made their way up and down the hillside, arguing most of the way. I would have liked to see more of the sights – better than listening to his asides and the constant whining – but this is what they gave us. The scene where they were waving at the uncle in the condo made no sense to include in the episode. The entire trip was a waste of time.

    My guess is that next week when Caroline channels Marlon Brando and asks for a sitdown with Danielle, may be leading up to the grand finale of Danielle’s departure. What cracks me up is they suggest that they are all “terrorized” by Danielle which I have ye to comprehend. Exactly what has she done to them that makes them believe she is destroying their lives? She is nuts but beyond that, unless I am missing something here, I have not seen any evidence outside of her own paranoia, that leads me to believe that she is “gunning” for that mob of illiterate no nothings.

    Did anyone else get the impression that Caroline was making fun of the Italy relatives? Like she was smirking at their hospitality? I can’t abide this woman with her smug attitude made up of “us vs them” and thinking her family is better than anyone else.

    Lastly, I still maintain that my favorite of all is Jillian. She looks like someone sitting back and taking notes and waiting for the day she can publish her own “Mommie Dearest” best seller. You can see the fear in her eyes each time Mommie raises her voice as she “pretends” that she and her girls are a tight unit. Carrie Fisher did it to Debbie Reynolds and I have a feeling that little Jillian has it in her as well.

    • Noelle says:

      I just love you Olivia! lmao @ jumping into Vesuvius vs bus ride!

      Spot on with your thoughts on Caroline channeling Marlon Brando in the sit-down with Danielle. This is so tiresome.

      Backtracking a bit, those poor girls with Teresa’s obsession of dressing them up as low end American Girl dolls…Oh my, hideous and I’m being mild here!

    • klmh says:

      Nope, I didn’t get the impression Caroline was making fun of the Italian relatives. I think sometimes her face, when she smiles, looks like she’s smirking, but I don’t see it in her eyes. Just a mouth thing, imo…

    • sss says:

      BTW Caroline once bragged that Bernard Kerik, disgraced Rudi Guiliani pal and convicted felon was a great friend of the family. I died laughing.

    Tried to post on the last blog, but someone asked the question about Teresa’s bracelet. Jacq mentioned the value of it was $12,000. Where is it? And where is her diamond ring and on and on and on…

    Happy, Happy Birthday Lynn! Thank you so much for the pleasure you bring to us all. I hope you have a wonderful year!

    Meanwhile, is Teresa so lacking a brain she would claim to own a house in Italy, regardless of condition? This woman is a gold mine for the bankruptcy trustee. Everybody say…..

    YEEEEE HAAAAA!

  26. Anitabee says:

    Hmmm…

    I got home late and had to check Kikilet’s twitter.

    Her twitter is part of my new diet plan to lose weight. After I read it I get so upset I can’t finish my dinner. Hope it works.

    Anyhoo, Kelly is like a unicorn with a bone and just doesn’t stop. This is now day 3 of her mean girl charity rant. I would love to know just which Housewife would agree to partake and support Kelly in something so absoluting ridiculous.

    And WOW and I mean WOW — what a frinking CHICA LOCA Ms. Killoran is with her vendetta against Bethenny. PETA doesn’t want you Kelly. They will NEVER offer a crazy douche bag (that would be you, Kelly) a Billboard in Times Square.

    The reason is simple: Kelly wears FUR but more importantly she’s unpopular.

    • Abby Someone says:

      I love this Anitabee. Her tweet today really managed to piss me off in the off season. haha
      I was so happy that Lynn called her on her comments.

      She had the balls to write:
      @H8Yankees I would only pose for @peta if I was truly committed to a life of supporting the cause for a time. Not for tv. NEVER. Not my game

      My son and I were playing a game where we were trying to figure out how you could be “commited to a life of supporting a cause….FOR A TIME”.
      It’s a head scratcher. Kiki has a habit of writing something that, at first glance, makes you think you just read it wrong, so you read it again..then again, wondering how something can be life long yet “for a time”. Finally you’re like, wait, oh crap (smacks own forehead)I fell for it again. It WONT make sense because it’s from planet kiki.

      I also find it hilarious that she told that same person “Don’t ever confuse my efforts”. What?! The person who claims it’s ok to change your mind from day to day is going to be indignant that her waffling might cause confusion?

      Regarding her thinly disguised insults to Bethenny, what exactly has this sociopath gotten into her head now? I mean we would have to be obtuse not to see she is saying she is better and more sincere than Bethenny, but what is her explaination of the tv argument? Because Bethenny allowed her Peta unveiling to be on tv, it’s less sincere? Kiki is on some higher moral ground because she would do it “silently?” What a laugh.

      She allows her entire life on camera and that includes her stripping male models for Goodwill in the back of a truck, out on the street in Manhattan, despite claims that she doesn’t lend her name to anything. Kiki’s ambition is like a tornado destroying everything in it’s path. There is nothing silent about her. She will put any twist on anything anyone does to make them look beneath her, and she doesn’t burden herself with caring about having the facts on her side. She sees someone else success and puts an immoral spin on it saying “not my game”. Yeah, we know your game Kiki. Go take a long walk off a short runway.

        Kelly also made a comment/tweet about B “exploiting” her father’s death for ratings, something to that effect. This is old news, but can’t she just leave B alone?!

        With her fabulous life and star friends you’d think she’d have little time to keep tabs on B, let alone care. Oy..me thinks she’s one ugly piece of work. Those poor children of hers.

    If I recall correctly, Teresa recently said she is living within her means. Are they still in that golden chalet, or living above the golden arches? One can hope.

    • Kat says:

      She doesn’t know what it means to live within a budget. I think she is a liar and a wishful thinker, a dedicated shopper and remains the master spender.

      I think she is going to live in the golden pizza parlor.

  28. vilzvet says:

    Well, it does seem apparent that the entire trip was not a freebie, not with Joe carrying on so rudely about the supposed huge hotel bill. Why would he even care if Bravo had picked up the entire tab? It did look like they got stiffed from his description of the charges, but they ARE all huge drinkers, so it’s a mystery. Perhaps Bravo only covered the airfare (of course), and the cruise, which apparently looked to be about 4 days. That’s it. Everything else the families had to pony up. And Yikes at Jacqueline referring to all the parents as “the old people” right in front of them, wow. No couth. I also hope Teresa had sore feet for days after wearing heels yet again while walking. Even her own daughter commented she was going to fall down the hill. As always she was barely looking after even one kid, same with Jacqueline. The Danielle stuff barely intrigued me.

  29. Abby Someone says:

    Really well said Olivia. I can’t begin to comprehend why they make Danielle seem like she is ruining their lives. She is a mentally ill person but she is not stalking them for crissakes. I was laughing when the one husband said to Joe that his wife was a different person there. Who the heck is she when she’s rattling around in that big house all day? Is she a wreck because Daniella is only miles away? Please. You’re telling me she had to fly across the pond to put the trauma of Daniella behind?

    If I took the trip of a lifetime and was stuck on a bus with Teresa’s kids and juicy Joe, I would be making a gondola getaway if I had to paddle myself.

    I didn’t see the part with Caroline being elitist so I can’t comment on that. After Teresa bought that ring I couldn’t watch much more. They live so beyond their means even when they are in serious trouble and that green monstracity was so gaudy. It’s going to set off the x-ray machine at the airport. It was like the crystals in Superman’s lair.

  30. Olivia says:

    If it is true that Danielle is getting axed from the series than what else has this show got to offer?

    More scenes of Caroline weeping over her almost empty nest. Albie and his failing grades. Jacqueline and Trashley have another heart to heart. The “ham game”.
    Stripper carwashes?

    And if Danielle goes where does this leave Teresa? Still spending money she does not have? Joe tossing pies into the air? Those awful kids and their latest wardrobe failures? Without Danielle to hate on there is absolutely no reason to watch this mess.

    Surely this will more than likely bring back Dopey Dina to dish out her brand of “spirituality” while stroking that gruesome cat and possibly allow Kim G to “weasel” her slutty way onto the show. Kim G, a master of duplicity, famewhoring, and vulgarity while dressing like an antique version of Miley Cyrus, is to be playing the role of exactly what in another season? Without Dastardly Danielle, who does she practice on?

    NJ has run its course. The “tie that binds” is departing. I am unable to see the benefit of another season of another villain up against a family as “thick as thieves”. No way will we ever be convinced that Teresa has solved her financial problems and is set to continue her wild spending to the delight of the others. We know too much as it is. And if Bravo goes about enlarging Trashley’s role I think that will do it for most of us here.

  31. Noelle says:

    Is it just me or does it seem like this (RHNJ) season should be so over already. Far too long of the same old ridiculous shit. I’m so done.

  32. lillybee says:

    One highlight is Juicy cussing up a storm and then telling the others to be civilized.

    It says 46 comments but I can only see 8 and my comment got eaten.

  34. cusi77 says:

    Can somebody explain why Teresa tole re to be treated that way and still behave like nothing uncommon is happening?

  35. lillybee says:

    Wouldn’t it be funny if Danielle finds her birth mother and finds out that she is not Italian?

  36. I’m thinking that Bravo paid for the trip & the hotel rooms, but NOT cleaning out the minibar. That’s what Joe was complaining about. And if he’s been to Italy before, he would know they don’t eat breakfast the way we do, so what’s with the bitching about breakfast?

    And those outfits on those poor girls—hideous, absolutely hideous.

    OOOOOoooo, next week, Caroline “demands” a meeting with Danielle. WTF is up with that bitch? Who died & made her God, & why would she think that Danielle would want to sit there & listen to Caroline blame her for everything that’s gone wrong in all their lives? They are so obsessed with her, it’s unreal!

  37. felony stupid says:

    Just gotta say it. T’s parents were brought as babysitters of T’s 4 small children and needed a break so Caroline was asked to step in?!? Why didn’t TERESA take over and give her parents a break? WTF…

    OK, I feel better now. Back to the tables. xoxo!!

  38. I wouldn’t doubt that Danielle has been terminated for several reasons. First, she has threatened the other castmates with civil action. I don’t know if it has actually been filed. She might be waiting until she actually gets confirmation of her Season 3 status.

    Second, Danielle states in the preview she has armed guards at the sit-down with Caroline. New Jersey has one of most restrictive conceal carry gun laws in the country. Did Danielle’s Mafia include Danny, a convicted felon who would have been prohibited from carrying a firearm in any state? Or were the guards legal permit holders.

    From Wikipedia –
    “New Jersey is a “may issue” state. However, it is the express policy of New Jersey legislative and law enforcement authorities that the carrying of a handgun on one’s person be strictly limited only to those earning a living through the carrying of a handgun. Theoretically, there exists a route for a civilian to legally carry a handgun, but in reality, is practically nonexistent. Out of a population of 8,000,000 people there are less than 1,000 handgun carry permits in the state ( including those earning a living through the carrying of a handgun ).”

    Regardless, I think this show has reached the end of the road.

    • I don’t blame her for having “armed” guards at the meeting with Empress Caroline. This group has already proven they are after her & have encouraged & condoned actual violence & stalking on her. I’m thinking Danielle had to show up because of contract obligations; otherwise, she should have told Caroline “F-you, bitch, I’ll see you in court.”

    This is good. From the NY Post:

    Bankrupt ‘Housewife’ Teresa Giudice’s $60K spending spree

    Spendaholic “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice celebrated her bankruptcy in style — with a $60,000 shopping spree, astonishing court testimony revealed yesterday.

    The buying bender came to light as the Bravo star and her husband, Joe, who owe creditors $11 million, tried to convince a Newark federal bankruptcy judge to stop the planned Aug. 22 auction of the contents of their Towaco McMansion.
    [snip]
    The receipts show that within days of filing to wipe out their multimillion-dollar debt, the Giudices blew $8,800 for curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs, The Post’s Jeane MacIntosh reports.
    [snip]
    During the hearing, bankruptcy trustee John Sywilok noted that right before their bankruptcy filing, the Giudices racked up an earlier $21,000 worth of furniture buys — and paid off a total of $11,000 of that just two days before declaring they were broke.
    [snip]
    Hubby Joe — sweating profusely and barely able to contain his temper with media after the hearing — snapped, “None of your business! Back off before I get pissed!”

    • Kukulet says:

      Classic:

      In court, even the Giudices’ own lawyer, James Kridel — who had filed a court document with receipts that detailed the spree — seemed at a loss to explain the profligate spending to Judge Morris Stern. Kridel said he knew the documents presented “a dilemma” and that Stern might view it as “conspicuous consumption.”

      He knew the documents presented a “dilemma”, and yet he was the one who filed them with the court in the first place. Wow, that’s some lawyer they’ve got. He must be doing the job gratis…if the Giudices were paying a lawyer, they’d be paying a crooked shyster to HIDE spending sprees, not disclose them. FOFL!

    • Quincy IL says:

      We have a three strikes law in IL. A 27 year old stole a candy bar as from a gas station. He just took it and ran. He was sent to prison for 3 months. What Teresa has done is exponentially worse than that young Black man. I think she has to go to prison.

      • Snarkella says:

        Teresa in prison would be the best thing that could happen to her kids. They’d have to live with someone else and might have a shot at growing into decent human beings– if it’s not already too late!

    • klmh says:

      Nice find! Tx

  40. Kukulet says:

    Okay…

    Teresa drags her parents and Jac’s parents and Joe’s parents and Caroline and Albert with them just so they can babysit…and then makes them hike up a damn mountain and pay $1,000 for a breakfast? Stupid lazy selfish bint.

    That crack by Caroline about them eating as if they were going to jail…intentional or not, that was the high point of the show.

    And those dresses and headbands her girls were wearing in the last scene…ai ai ai. Give it a couple of years. Those girls are going to mutiny on her ass just for making them look that stupid.

    Half a world away, and Jac is still talking about Danielle. Joe and Chris are still talking about Danielle. Shut the hell up about Danielle already.

    I’ve little sympathy for Danielle, but I gotta give her credit on one thing – we haven’t seen her chasing any of them through a country club. And why is the Godmother planning to meet with her? As scripted as all this has seemed by Bravo, there’s still an element of the Manzo/Laurita/Giudice camp doing all they can to encourage Bravo to keep scripting it into the show.

    • Quincy IL says:

      On occassion, I have some feeling in favor of Danielle, but then she states that she is bringing men with guns to a sit down dinner with Caroline. That is dangerous and cannot be allowed.

      • Kukulet says:

        True, but Danielle has, in the past, proved to be nothing but talk…and Caroline is still going strong, so clearly nothing violent happened at this meeting.

        On one hand, there’s Danielle, who talks a lot, and on the other, the Clan of the Cave Bear, who have also talked a lot, but have also displayed some real violence towards Danielle. She’s bad enough, but they’re worse.

        • Anitabee says:

          I don’t know…

          Bravo has gotten very reckless with the safety of the lives of their casts on RHONJ and RHONY. Kelly should have been committed and not allowed to film the rest of the season after her meltdown in the Virgin Islands.

          I swear Andy Cohen won’t be happy until someone gets killed on one of his shows.

          And I’m not taking that likely. I REALLY fell this is where these trainwreck shows are heading.

      • If some bitch who not only laughed at, but encouraged & condoned someone to physically assault me, I’d take armed guards with me too. Of course, Danielle could be bluffing, claiming she has armed guards to stave off an assault in the parking lot or elsewhere.

  41. Quincy IL says:

    Teresa needs new clothes and makeup so she can go back on the VIEW and tell us that she lives within her means again.

  42. Sha2000 says:

    Did anyone notice the preview where Danielle gets a text from Caroline? It looked strange so I paused it; the curser is at the end of the message & the send button is highlighted, as if it’s Danielle that’s texting. Yes. it does appear to be a set up scene (as most I’m sure) & it looks like they even had Danielle text herself to look like Caroline did. Take a look if you have it DVRed.

    • Good call!
      How much you wanna bet this scene is fixed before the show next week?

      • jennifer says:

        The whole show is fixed…..why would Caroline ask danielle for a “sit down” after telling Dina how awful an idea it was? Also for someone who cried and screamed about not wanting people to compare them to Mafia at reunion she had no issue allowing that to be played out….

        It’s fake and if I wanted to watch the Godfather I’d rent it….movie is better anyway!

        Also, why did Teresa bring her and Joe’s parents and not let them walk up hill to meet family?? Thats weird to me….
        Hope bankruptcy lawyer was watching when she claimed they own house in Italy (my guess her parents own it)

        • Zoey says:

          There were cars going up the hill that the whole clan was walking up. Couldn’t they find a ride up parts of it? Or scooters; something. It just seemed silly.

          Teresa said she’s been to Italy twice, right? Yet she asked questions like it was her first time. What a doofus.

          And then there’s the small child standing at the end of the gondola, then standing at the end of the pier, mostly walking all over with no adult holding her hand. These parents are scary.

        • Anitabee says:

          Honestly — I wouldn’t care about Kelly but it UPSETS me to no end that she has custody of two young girls. That’s the part I have a problem with. Does Kelly not love them enough to get help for her mental issues.

          Those poor girls… 😦

          • jezzibel says:

            from what little we’ve seen of them on camera they seem fairly well adjusted….I’m sure their nannys are doing an outstanding job of raising them.

          • Zoey says:

            I agree. Sadly her ego is so big that although she really believes that she loves those two girls, I don’t think she can see past herself. She’s not capable of real love or putting anyone before herself.

    What amazes me about RHONJ is it just won’t end!
    Looking forward to seeing one of the most beautiful country in the world and instead we get the NJ circus! Could Joe and Teresa
    Teresa and Joe are headed for divorce and those kids have never been taught the simpliest of manners (but then again their mother doesn’t seem to know them well enough to consider their needs for sleep, etc). I loved how Gabriella hung out with Caroline and Albert!
    Claiming to own property while your petition for bankruptsy was pretty stupid Teresa – do you get the feeling that she doesn’t think she has to repay anything regardless of the judgement?? The trustee is being treated to mucho evidence that the Guidice’s spending is still out of control and there is income still being undeclared….

    My WTF question today gang is this: Did Teresa get a deal from Zarin Fabrics for those matching circus outfits?? That poor baby – that flower not only covered her face but it was sticking her constantly.

    Kelly’s tweet—Taking chief for her run. Wait till u see what I have for u today!

    Kelly, Who are you tweeting to? Who do you think cares? Nobody. Do yourself and your kids a favor. Concentrate on one thing. Here are some suggestions.
    1. Go get your hair done and loose that old nasty hair. Get a modern haircut.
    2. Get a facial, your skin is leathery in EVERY photo.
    3. Weed out your closets. Get rid of ruffels, short skirts, tiny tops. You’re closer to age 50 than you are to age 20, start dressing that way.
    4. Iron the cloths you keep. Stop looking like a poor slob when you go out.
    5. Get a notebook and write 100 times. Nobody thinks I’m funny or cute, I need to grow up.
    6. Stop tweeting. You’re being laughed at.

    Check in on Lynn’s blog tomorrow. I’ll have a new list for you.

    • Ellabean says:

      Oh Boston. That was perfection. How very wise you are. I think I am closer to Kelly’s age than you (if I recall correctly) – but you are so astute in assesing how she should be maturing and presenting herself publicly at her age – and just how ‘off’ she is.

      Can you imagine if Kelly were a 42 year man trying to act like he was in his 20’s ? She’d be attempting to spike up gelled hair with a noticeable male-pattern balding, covering up a paunch with too tight of a shirt, piercing an ear, getting a tattoo, driving a too small red sportscar, and saying things like awesome and amazing for everything. Now how ridiculous does that sound for a 42 year old guy…?

  49. Olivia says:

    You have to question the producers at Bravo. Did they, or did they not, set up this whole “feud” from the beginning or did it just go downhill from the time Danielle’s lurid past become known to the others? Have the viewers been “taken for a ride” that has stretched into 15 weeks of incessant hate and unnecessary violence just for the sake of ratings? I remember Danielle telling Andy that she did not mind being “the villain” on this show and questioning what she meant since she herself cast herself in the role of “victim” from the outset.

    The “texting” piece mentioned above kind of brings it all home. Dina texting Danielle to set up a “farewell meeting” that could have as easily been done via the same method. It always seemed so “fake” that had Danielle actually interfered with Dina’s custody of Lexie there would be no way in hell I would ever, under any circumstances, agree to “forgive” her and continue to communicate as she did via texts. It made no sense. We have come to discover lately via her own Twittering that Dina’s “sweetness and light” persona is totally phony.

    We can probably all agree that “something happened” during the last reunion where Caroline broke down and accused Danielle of harming her family but what it was we were never told. It would also seem to me that this is where the line of commonsense
    was officially drawn and they all would refused to go forward with Season 2 if they felt that strongly against Danielle.

    Bravo had to have set them all down and described Season 2 in full by making Danielle the nemesis since it was clear from the opening scenes that this was where they were all headed. All 15 weeks was nothing but “Danielle bashing” and her accommodating them by being filmed either stalking or discussing them at length as well. Again, commonsense would indicate that if things between all parties was as difficult to live with as they maintained, then the most intelligent way to handle it was by them all staying away from one another.

    I am not clear as to what we were watching here but my guess is that this show is indeed “scripted” with the “stars” improvising the dialogue around a scene that has been “set up”. If so, then Danielle is more than just a fraud. She has opened her children to the luridness of her past that is on display for all to see. Sex tapes, phone sex, bathroom propositions, Danny Pro, vulgarity, pole dancing, boob showing, faux outrage, all built around a show that promises “stardom” for the participants.

    There is no hiding Teresa’s nefarious lifestyle which the taxpayers are expected to absorb as she flits from venue to venue enjoying her share of “star status” as she thumbs her nose at convention and responsibility. The only hopeful sign I can see to end this charade is for Juicy Joe to finally put his foot down and say no more to the humiliation this has caused him as his name and reputation have been dragged through the mud because of his wife’s need to be cast as a “celebrity”. No amount of publicity can overcome his problems. You would hope that he has reached his limit.

    Personally, as bad as this series has become, I think we have all been “played”. And what is it that Caroline hopes to accomplish by meeting with Danielle who has agreed to attend? The whole thing stinks like dead fish left out in the sun for too long.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      We were had – no doubts about that! These women/families can’t act, can’t follow a script and dished up to the worst human nature has to offer. While Danielle won’t be back, do we really want to continue to follow the rest of these idiots??? Teresa, Queen of the Trailer Park Divas? Jacq/Trashley, Partners in Crime? Caroline, Suffering Empty Nest Syndrome while her house is still full? And the return of Dina, the Voodoo Queen of the Pine Barrens????

      Bravo needs to shut down this disaster and move on to another city……

      • MAMAZ says:

        I think so too. The sad part is that even scripted it is still boring as hell. Doesn’t hold my attention at all. I only watched part of this weeks episode. I will probably watch the reunion but thats it. I will NOT watch any Danielle spin off.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Well said Olivia. I remember someone once posted a link on this blog about BGM (I think it was NY mag), it said that they were filming & what a pro Bethenny was going out of the restaurant & coming in again & saying what she needed to say so they could film. I guess they has to be a certain amount set up to make these stories work. I don’t think this is the case on every reality show; Little People Big World for instance feels like its real & genuine; RHONJ has its real moments (like meeting grandma on the hill top) but the are few & far between. If you get a chance, record next weeks show & take a look at that text on pause.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I honestly think that Bravo had to set up these scenes because nothing of value happened in any of the 8 months of shooting. Think about it…8 months and this is the crap that we got and 2 episodes were the Italy episodes. If Bravo didn’t set these scenes up we’d have however many episodes of seeing Teresa spend money that she does not have.

    • KellitaM says:

      Hi All! Just chiming in….
      I agree with Olivia. I think maybe we’ve been played.
      The part where Danny told Danielle that her enemies were all in Italy, and she acted delighted that she could safely panini shop? That felt very scripted. Wasn’t she offered to go to Italy as well by Bravo, but turned it down? So she had to have known they were all across the pond.
      On another note…..what a collective bunch of goofballs jaunting about Italy! I was embarrassed for them. I felt sorry for Caroline, Albert and the “Old People,” as Jacqueline so tactfully called them. Jac is quickly becoming one of my least favorites, as I view her middle school humor.
      And those little Guidice girls dress? Wow. They were a spectacular example of “Money Doesn’t Buy You Class.” I’m surprised the 9yo hasn’t put her foot down yet.

    The girls’ outfits were indescribable. Pantaloons indeed! Felt so bad for that little baby with that scratchy thing right near her eyes, awful. And Teresa said it clearly, that Audriana had been with her PARENTS all day and her relatives were only seeing her for the first time at dinner. At the other dinner we see the parents holding both babies and trying to eat at the same time while T and J are having a grand old time at a different table. No Bravo blogs are up yet except Danielle’s, same old advertising crap with a little comment about the firing rumor, that she doesn’t even care.

  51. OneMoreinBoston says:

    OK-I am fixated with Milania. (Deep breath) Has anybody else noticed that something is…well…not quite right?

    Disclaimer: I’m not into bashing little kids, because as more that one person on this blog has rightfully pointed out, if they are rude and spoiled, it’s not their fault-it’s their parents.

    But… I don’t think that her behavioral problems are behavioral at all.

    What I’ve noticed:
    -This little girl doesn’t seem to have an “indoor” voice. She yells all of her verbal responses. And she does so in a weird deep bellow.

    -When Milania can’t see her parents or sisters, like when she was trudging up the hill last night by herself, she disobeys them.

    -Yet she responds instantly to nonverbal interaction such as Gia taking her hand, and then behaves.

    -When the lifeguard told Caroline that the girls couldn’t be in the hot tub, Caroline came over and pantomimed that they should get out. Little Milania did so immediately and then seemed almost frozen until Auntie Caroline motioned for her to come down the steps onto the deck. She didn’t come down when she was TOLD to though, she waited until she could SEE what Caroline wanted.

    -In every episode that shows the sisters, it seems as though all I can remember is Theresa screeching “MI-LAN-EE-AH!” three thousand times, because she doesn’t respond to her.

    -When she is “bad” like at the clothing store, ripping down the merchandise, it seems like she is acting out. Not because she’s a bad little girl, but because she’s frustrated.

    -And Joe is frustrated with her because she doesn’t “listen”. But I don’t think she’s a willful, naughty child, she just seems to be in her own little world, because maybe she is.

    I think she has a hearing problem. She just turned 4 so maybe it hasn’t been diagnosed yet. I don’t know, I’m not any type of an authority on kids, I don’t even have any, so I hope I’m wrong.

    I think she actually seems like a good little kid, and I get a kick out of her. Just don’t EVER wake her up on her birthday!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      With the spacing of their ages being so close – Teresa was pregnant and maybe not as attentive as she should have been and Milania didn’t get much direction regarding her behavior. She could be loud because that is the only way she is heard or gets attention. Gia seems to be standing away and watching the dynamics. Gabriella was attached to Albert and Caroline because they were taking the time to interact with her.
      Teresa is chaos without consideration for her children’s needs – who climbs a hill like that in heels – doesn’t hold hands with her kids in busy streets? It is like playing dress up barbie with real children – they looked like they were circus freaks flouncing around in impractical outfits for a vacation.

    • boston02127 says:

      @OnemoreinBoston—While reading your post I was thinking “maybe she has a hearing problem” and was surprised when I got to your second last paragraph when you also suggested it. I had a hearing problem when I was little. My mother told me she thought I was just being a disobedient kid. She
      didn’t find out about it until I was in first grade. I didn’t do well in school and she took me for all kinds of tests to find out why. I ended up getting tubes.
      I remember when I got home from the hospital that I cried so much because everything was so loud.

      • OneMoreinBoston says:

        Interesting…did your behavior change after you were diagnosed? How old were you when you got the tubes?

        You write very well, so you did end up learning when you were in school.

        Based on your personal experience, do you think Milania might have a hearing problem?

        • boston02127 says:

          OnMoreInBoston—After I got the tubes I did fine in school. My mother did have me repeat the first grade thou.
          To this day when I tell this story I always have to add in… I got promoted by the school but my mother kept me back. I think that bothered me more than having a hearing problem at that age. I’m a twin and my brother went on to second grade. If she does having a hearing problem hopefully Teresa will pick up on it as my mother did with me at a young age.

          • anniieee says:

            My daughter had a visual integration problem. She was the good kid, with the PTA mom-room mom and was promoted. By 3rd grade, I knew something wasn’t right. I went to the school..etc etc..everything is fine..etc…and pulled her out and put her in Catholic Schools. I gave the nuns 6weeks to see if there was a problem. They called me in 4 and were very apologetic. Um..we think your daughter is not on grade level. They recommended a testing place at the University—long story short. We (nuns and I) decided to allow her to continue that year, but hold her back the next year (4th). She would have the same 2 nuns. What a wonderful difference. It was tough for a while–but I blamed me–not Kellee and she got eye training that entire year. At 30 – she is an absolute joy. Sometimes we are too close to the situation and miss it. I was lucky–she was my 2nd baby. But that year was hard for her, especially in a very small Catholic School. Bless you Boston! You caught it…I just thought she was spoiled. Went back and watched. I think there is a hearing disorder of some sort.

      • Olivia says:

        At the same time, you can tell that these kids have never been taught boundaries. They are often seen kicking and hitting each other with little interference from either parent to the unacceptability of this behavior.

        Teresa does not “interact” with them as much as she “dresses” them up like dolls. This gives her the attention she craves but she ignores any role of discipline by just giving in to the screaming and whining hoping to just shut them up. That scene showing the parents playing Monopoly with 3 and 5 yr olds was an example of the stupidity of these two people. Those kids were way too young to understand that game but it was included to show a semblance of “family life” that probably does not exist.

        I think Joe spends as much of his time as possible far away from that household. Then Teresa turns over the day to day raising of those kids to Mama and Papa who are getting a little too old to deal with 4 out of control kids.

      • vilzvet says:

        A possible problem with hearing, good call. In the scene where they arrive home, it is late at night and Milania is still yelling as she walks up the stairs. The comment she made had no need to be screamed, but Teresa just laughed it off. The kid definitely never speaks in an indoor voice, ever.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        My youngest got his first set of tubes at 3 because I noticed he didn’t respond to some conversations and some of the words he used were not said correctly. He is now 12 and while he will always have some hearing difficulty the other aspects of his behavior can not be blamed/excused/overlooked by that handicap.
        He was taught by me not to hit, always use good manners, and to listen/behave! When he was 5 we went to Australia – he was better behaved than some adults on the 22 hour plane ride…..so while Milania may have difficulty hearing, the rest of her behavior I lay it at her parents’ feet – epic failure in parenting and unfortunately Milania will be the one who pays for it later in life.

  52. Olivia says:

    It is more than likely that Dina was expected to be “the star” of this series owing to her “beauty” and “spiritual leanings”. Give me a break! She is also a veteran of the same kind of “reality show” that featured her over the top wedding to a guy who obviously was not that into her.

    But Danielle eclipsed her, as did Bethenny to Jill, and I think she just picked up her marbles in a fit of petulance and departed the scene. From what we have witnessed with her incessant twittering as of late, she very much wants to be a part of the action otherwise she would have remained silent.

    This show, IMHO, was to be built around “Lovely Dina” but decided to take another turn as Danielle promised to be so much more provocative. The producers got what they wanted by way of the ratings, and Dina is poised to return (I have a feeling that Kim G will too. Ugh!) now that Danielle has departed.

    I hope Bravo reconsiders and pulls the plug. I cannot imagine a less interesting vehicle than NJ with its cast of “wannabes” that no one seems to like. None of them would be missed and they should not be rewarded for rotten behavior.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Again, the secret meeting in NYC with the other NJ gals comes into play. They had boat loads of gossip and evidence to give to the Bravo staff. I am shocked that Bravo has fired Lynn Curtin and Daniell Staub. I await the firing of Kelly Bensimon next.

        You put it on babies bottoms when you change their diapers; it helps to prevent diaper rash & chafing.

                It is called Boudreaux Butt Paste, and until very recently (within the last 5 years) you could only buy it in the South. It is quite simply a miracle cream. Heat rash, peeling sunburn, elbows, cuticles, diaper rash, bikini line burns(from waxing or shaving) damn near any skin ailment is cured quickly. I used to have my Aunt ship it to me and now you can get it at Walgreens and Target. Funny name, but seriously good stuff.

    I loved when Albert and Caroline were alone in their hotel room in Naples and Albert said “Maybe Mt. Vesuvius (sp?) will erupt.”

    I think that Albert is a real softy in real life. They try and make him look cold but he is not. Just watching him with Teresa’s girls was so great. Carrying them on his shoulders etc.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I have to say that I actually like Albert and Caroline. There is real affection there. Caroline is loyal to a fault. Her talking heads are all about making an excuse for Dina or Jac or Teresa. She doesn’t realize that she is not helping them at all. Let them stand on their own two feet.

  55. boston02127 says:

    @AnotherOnInBoston—Do you listen to KISS 108? This morning Michaele Salahi called the show. She talked about the housewives and was acting cutsie & dumb as usual. When the conversation ended and they disconnected her, Mattie and Billy Costa at the same time said— ICK

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I do listen-and I love Matty (interesting but true-I was at the very first Kiss party waaayyyy back in the day)
      I did hear the promos for her phone call yesterday and deliberately didn’t listen, because sometimes I just get a little RHW overload.

  56. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    This episodes just shows more conspicuous consumption by the Giudice’s. They had already filed for bankruptcy yet Teresa got “custom made” ugly outfits for those girls. That is not cheap even for ugly outfits. Then they obviously spent a lot at the hotel since Joe was complaining about the bill. I almost wonder if Teresa didn’t know how much debt they have. I know, I know Teresa is Teresa…..loud mouth, uncaring, self absorbed, but Joe being so bitchy about money and Teresa being kind of oblivious like normal I would not be surprised if she did not know. I guess we’ll never know because the truth is a foreign word to those two.

  57. Kelly_ Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    Kellys tweet about Peta was a dig at Bethenny but If I were her I’d be careful, since h she is now kissing Kardashian arse and if I remember correctly one of the sisters posed for Peta on their reality tv. show. KIKI IS SO STUPID>.

  58. Squirrels says:

    Where to begin? As to Danielle and her alleged firing – Is it possible Bravo would let her depart no so much because of her civil suits against other cast members, but due to the fact Bravo footage will be part of those suits? Not only will their editing come into play, the court may demand the uncut footage and we know with all the skepticism about the show being scripted, edited to push the story over the edge, etc. this could be a major problem for them. If my theory is correct, they would be forced to get rid of her simply because they would not want her to be able to use any content next season in court. After all, it’s not like the drama would cease and desist. She could get yet another bug up her butt and really bring it on.

    • Squirrels says:

      Oh, and one more point. If Danielle can sue and be successful, what’s to stop any other housewife from doing the same? Therefore, in Bravo’s eyes, Danielle must be punished for her audacity.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I didn’t think of this, but it does start a precedent that could affect all of their programming. Good call on this idea!

    • Anitabee says:

      The plot thickens does it not?

      I am sure that Bravo has canned her. The cray-crayness will come in the explaination why. Rumors are flying that it has something to do with the Dina/Danielle situation.

      One rumor says that Danielle was canned BEFORE the reunion. This season of RHONJ was boring so I hope the end gives us a payoff. And it’s starting to look like it’s gonna pay off BIG.

      I think for the reunions (u know they gotta give us at least 3) I will be munching on Paninis and Blueberry Smoothies in honor of the recently departed Danielle Staub.

      Who am I kidding — I’ll probably drink some white wine and do some “turtle-time.”….

    Watching Danielle’s daughters was painful. You can see it in their faces. They obviously do not want to be filmed with their mother. Christine and Jillian both know that Danielle is only interested in what money they are able to bring in with modeling and singing. Danielle uses her blog to promote them both. I hope their Dad fights for custody.

      But if this man married Danielle, and stayed with her for years, can he be any kind of prize? (And supposedly cheated on her).

    Didn’t Danielle in her infamous book of lies indicate that her birth mother was a teen from a wealthy family in Italy who sent her here to have her baby because the father was a priest who was later murdered? Or some cockamamie story along the same line?

    We see her last night talking to the “investigator” where she could only offer the facts that Mom was 15 yrs old and Italian/Catholic and this was all she had to go on. So which story is it? This show is so full of bullsh*t that it tends to forget that some of us have been paying attention.

    Joe and his “yawn”. Danielle with the Mom story. Teresa and the “tenants” who forced her into losing the grand piano. They must take us for people who have a really short attention span and are gullible enough to believe these cheesy excuses.

    • jezzibel says:

      I kind of suspect Danielle’s mom was’nt even italian…a minor yes. But why would a italian/sicilian/martian travel all the way to PA to put her child up to adoption..whould’nt she just hand it over to the nunnery/orphange in her own country?

      • Quincy IL says:

        I have an ex sister in law who was adopted around the time that Danielle got adopted. She didnt’ get to know anything including her own ethnicity. She paid for a DNA kit over the internet and claims she is American Indian. She doesn’t look it at all, but that is what she claims the company told her. She has major issues because she was adopted too. Not too different from Danielle I have to add.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Olivia–Yes, that was Danielle’s first story of who her parents were.

  63. Quincy IL says:

    I wonder if Joe emptied the suitcases when Teresa came home and found all of the little bottles of liquor and pistacios. Sticky fingers figured the trip was on Bravo and she was not happy that her husband was bitching on the bus.

      baileyslaura @kikilet and actually, maybe I can’t AFFORD “adorable” school supplies like u. Think b4 u tweet

    • Ellabean says:

      I had a vibe from the 12 year old daughter, Sea, that she was the child who needed a serious mature side to cope with Kelly’s immature arrested adolescence. Somehing about that pancake cooking scene* this season was very “off”. Sadly, that often creates a future “adult child” with issues – ‘ala Adult Children of Alcoholics. The child ‘s childhood is cut short by having to be the responsible one. AC’s often develop co-dependent dysfunctional relationships as an adult – may turn into a constant rescuer (gets involved with emotionally wounded people) or an over controller herself (as the child had less than a controlled environment and dependable primary caretaker in mom) .

      *Making pancakes: Hasn’t Kelly now mentioned making pancakes a bunch of times since – in tweets – for the camp counselor etc. I sense the big K is now defensive about the telling pancake episode. She surely was called out that – as what kind of a mother of 2 older kids has never even attempted to make her kids pancakes (good or bad ones). I would bet prior that she never has made them a real “cooked” breakfast – eggs etc. – vs. just pouring cereal. She’s been trying to publicly backpeddle on that one.

  69. Quincy IL says:

    Olivia, I took a link here and read that there is an upcoming custody case for Jillian Staub. Tom Staub is attempting to take custody of the little girl. I’ve been reading that he wanted custody of the child who asked to live with him for several years and it seems that is coming to a head now. The way that Danielle pulled that girl aside to persuade her on several occassions bother me greatly. It was a manipulative mind game and not healthy for a little girl.

    Wow… Danielle is moving to NYC. The article stated that the women of NYC housewives told Bravo they would all quit if Danielle joined them. It makes you wonder about the conversations that Caroline and crew had in the Hamptons with Jill.

    I think Danielle’s past has affected her present adversely. I too hope both girls are given to Tom Staub and his second wife.

    Whenever the women are fired by Bravo, they seem to leave the planet. Danielle’s moment of fame went up in smoke.

    Dina coming back is not something I am interested in either. I too think they should shut down NJ Housewives.

    • Anitabee says:

      I’ll post the link again.

      It IS interesting to read that Mr. Staub will not sign off on any releases for Christine and Jillian. I wish he had done that two seasons ago.

        From the same article:

        “…. I got a text from a source very close to the Bravo Cirque De Freakshow, saying ‘don’t be surprised if Danielle ends up on RHONY’ Holy Hell that would be incredibly awesome.”

        Wow! I’ve been hoping for a HW mash up! I’ve even suggested it to AC on Bravos site…but, I wanted to see the Countess live w/the Guidices for a bit; that would be comedy gold!

      • Quincy IL says:

        If a table toss sent Danielle to bed for days with the children what did that reunion do to the family. The kids must be in hell. Danielle has fire in her eyes if someone told Teresa that she was looking for her birth mom. Now, those people got her fired and her dreams destroyed. Caroline stated that Dina’s post box had been damaged and there had been other threats.
        Who is Danielle going to blame for all of this? Not Danielle… My bets are that Danielle is going to blame Dina.

      • kats2 says:

        I’m no fan of Danielle (as we all know she has a very disgusting past and her current extracurricular sex activities (sex tapes, etc) are revolting). But I have not seen any evidence that she is a bad mother. From all accounts the daughters are pretty great kids. Keep in mind the Dad married Danielle so is he really all that great or better? Didn’t they meet while she was a stripper? Does that mean its Not Ok to be a stripper but it’s Ok to be one of the many pigs who get off on it and are the very reason there are strip clubs? IMO – NO. I saw 5 minutes of the Dad, I don’t know if he’s better or worst. All I can say from what I have watched is that I cannot call Danielle a bad mother. Those scenes with Danielle and her daughters last night felt real and there seems to be respect, they listen and Danielle doesn’t put up with any crap. She raised good kids.

    • Squirrels says:

      If Dad is fighting for custody of Jillian, then this new exciting spin-off show may end up in smoke. Just Danielle and Christine won’t make for good TV, as I suspect dad won’t sign to allow Jillian to participate.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Finally, dad fights back. I hate all of these men who leave their children with nutcases. If you can’t stand that woman, don’t leave your kids to suffer with her.

        • Anitabee says:

          I agree.

          I can not see any judge giving custody to a woman who released a sex tape through Hustler. I don’t understand how Danielle could have done that with two young girls in her home.

          • Quincy IL says:

            The courts are fickle. I know of a woman living with a ex con for child murder who got to keep her two children. It happened.

          • Kukulet says:

            Unfortunately, there are thousands of mentally unstable, unfit women who have custody of their children. Child protective services across the country are understaffed and overworked and kids continually fall through the cracks. Releasing a sex tape through Hustler is mild compared to the horrors that some children go through at the hands of mothers who have legal custody.

        • IMJ says:

          I dont know the man but he seems pretty absentee in his daughters lives. It took 2 1/2 seasons before we even saw him. Im not saying hes not there, maybe he doesnt want to be filmed and thats understandable but those kids are with Danielle most of the time. Shes not mother of the year, thats for sure, but she is a mother that takes care of her children. I dont know if thats the case with their father.

      • Quincy IL says:

        These reality shows are so incomplete. We never saw an inkling of the Tom Staub custody battle. We never see the interaction of one star with stars from other shows and we know that happens.

        We have seen some pretty bad behavior on the NJ sets from Ashley and Kim G. Will they be rewarded when Danielle is fired?

        • Squirrels says:

          How old is Jillian? I expect laws are different in each state, but at one point age wise, can’t kids decide who they want to live with? I suspect Danielle would try to talk her out of staying with dad, since it would cut into the child support payments. Of course, she could add victim of mean ex-husband to her bucket list of “who I need to get even with.”

    Well that was interesting somehow I ended up on the July 2nd blog, lol.

    Under the initial photo look for the thumbnail of a man in a chair and a portrait on the wall that is Simon and Alex.

  71. Need a Hobby says:

    Jen Sale’s article on the Danielle drama is interesting. So basically, according to her sources, Bravo let her go basically due to her being a loose cannon?

    It may be possible that the sex tape, book, etc was the last straw. I find it hard to believe though that Bravo’s main motivation was that she was too trashy for TV. If that alone were the case, she wouldn’t have been back for this season. (Season 1 not only had the book, but Bravo showed us Danielle in a restaurant offering to give Steve a quickie in the restaurant’s restroom. This season, Danielle and her thug posse.)

    The Dina thing? Bravo’s pissed about Danielle’s alleged interfering with Dina and the impact on the show’s casting? If that were a reason for letting someone go, Zarin’s 15 minutes via RHONY should expire.

    I didn’t watch it, but some here noted Andy’s critical attitude to Danielle when she was on WWHL. (Yet he had her on his show. Crazy Kiki couldn’t even get her ass skyped into the show when she wanted to respond to the VI footage.)

    So if it’s true, I go with the overall loose cannon theory. Danielle’s agenda conflicted with Bravo’s.

    The most interesting stuff about RHNJ is not actually the show itself.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Hmmmm…. I actually have known several women like the woman they accuse Danielle of being. Kim G said that she is a lesbian because no man wants her. That is more evidence that in Wayne NJ everyone knows the kind of person Danielle is. It also fits with her attitude in the Gyne office. She was wacko about sex and diseases. Danielle is afraid of getting something because she does a stuff that is in the category of unsafe.

      Bravo picked a good one when they selected Danielle.

  72. Kukulet says:

    Kelly is wondering which is better for buying school supplies: Claire’s, Staples, or KMart.

    Isn’t Claire’s that mall chain store that sells overpriced girly jewelry and hair ornaments? Why in the world would anyone even think of going there to buy a complete school supply list?

    Not to mention that this woman’s kids have been going to school for several years, presumably. She’s just now getting around to asking about where to buy school supplies? Why? Everyone knows her nanny is the one really doing it.

    Who IS this chick and why is she so stupid?

    Bankrupt ‘Housewife’ Teresa Giudice Goes on $60K Shopping Spree

    Popeater – 2hrs 41mins ago

    Bankruptcy Court records show ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa Giudice and her husband Joe owe creditors nearly $11 million in various debts, but new evidence proves the couple went on a $60,000 shopping spree not long after they filed for Bankruptcy, NY Post reports. New Court records claim the pair spent $8,800 on curtains and nearly $45,000 on wall hangings, mirrors, frames, tables, urns and chairs.The evidence came to light after the couple tried to convince a Newark Federal Bankruptcy judge to stop the planned Aug. 22 auction of their personal belongings. Judge Morris Stern refused to stop the auction, but postponed it until Oct. 3.

    “These were not IKEA-purchased furniture items,” Stern said. “These were from high-end design stores.”In papers filed in Newark Federal Court, the Guidices claim to only make $79,000 a year, and are unable to handle the Foreclosures and hefty Credit Card bills.The Court document lists their money woes in detail:

    The bank has moved to foreclose on their $1.8 million home in Towaco, NJ.
    Banks have taken their Jersey Shore house along with another home in Lincoln Park, NJ.
    Teresa owes $12,000 to a fertility clinic.
    They’ve defaulted on payments for their Escalade.
    Joe personally owes $5 million to former partners of Real Estate deals.
    “OH Happy Day! When Jesus DiD NOT , wash their SINs away” 🙂

    • Squirrels says:

      So, the bank has started foreclosure on the mcMansion, or the court has? I’m confused because if this was not a purchase, but a purchase destroy all but one wall and redo the building, did they take out a bank loan to do it, or just stiff everyone who worked on building it?

      It also mentions the attorney for the Giudice’s said her spending spree was after the bankruptcy declaration. He said the money was an advance on her book, which was not declared as an asset in the filing, yet she spent the advance on furniture etc. The attorney was in agreement with her because he said the creditors could freeze the assets until a settlement was made! And that this is legal, it just makes her look bad! Oh, Im so mad…

      A fertility clinic?! lol And at the lavish christening she was talking about having another one! I assumed they had no problems with all of those kids. Turns out they have to pay to have Juicy Joe made from concentrate?!

      I don’t think Teresa is happy unless she is spending money. It’s an illness. She likes the chaos and she tells herself it will work out because she is entitled. My jaw dropped watching them spend on such useless, tacky things. That gaudy ring that looked like the green crystals in Superman’s lair was too much.
      Those outfits on the girls, looked like they got tangled in a Mardi Gras float.

      Imagine if they had a little economy and discipline in that house. For the sake of the children I hope they get their act together.

    Lynne and bloggers: I love this blog. comments, linls. Agree with all of comments about this nutty Bravo crew. Teresa’s funniest moment last night was when she explained that her English was poor because she only spoke Italian until she went to kindergarten. Loved it!
