I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of NJ Reunion Tonight August 30, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                        RHONJ Tonight!                  August 30, 2010

Tonight’s the night, the first of two episodes of the RHONJ Reunion shows…

There are a few chat rooms set up for Real Housewives chats, if anyone is interested, you do need to register in advance for these so if you want to join the chat, please register early:



The Real Housewives fan site, chat, blogs & forum, we’ll be chatting live tonight….




Again, both of these sites require advanced registration but they are free to chat and they will both be available during tonight’s reunion RHONJ show.  (supersized)  As always, you’re also welcome to chat here.  Enjoy!

If you are planning on recording it to watch later, please note that it is “supersized” and will reportedly be 1 hour and 15 minutes long tonight. 

Rumors are also flying about tonight’s New Jersey reunion, these rumors are indicating that Danielle has hired a private investigator and brought out some of her findings during the reunion taping. 

One of those would explain Teresa’s outburst at Danielle because rumor says Teresa’s husband Joe has a girlfriend named Tara who he has even been photographed with.  This is unconfirmed and we will most likely find out tonight or they may hold onto the really juicy details until next week’s airing of part two.  Honestly, I don’t think that too many people would be surprised to learn that Juicy Joe has a girl or two on the side.  Many of us bloggers got emails about this but few of us included it on our blogs because there was no proof.  It may be coming out more now just because some have now chosen to post it, possibly the previews being released could also relate to this story, we’ll just have to wait and see. 

This could also be Teresa’s attempt to top her table flipping for attention but, I cannot see her coming out looking good when she loses control and screams at the top of her lungs in someone’s face, regardless of her reason.

Teresa says she didn’t mean to shove Andy:  (but no public apology) 


Andy has a few words to say:

RT @zap2it ‘Real Housewives NJ’ preview: Andy Cohen speaks out on the reunion – From Inside the Bo.. http://bit.ly/9yrCzS

Reality Tea has posted a preview blog about tonight’s reunion:


Kelly is at it again, I should say “still” she continues to tweet nonstop making no sense but as you can see, she did confirm that she has been asked back on RHONY for next season.  Sources confirm that all of the ladies have been invited back, Jen Gilbert being the exception.  Rumors also abound that Bethenny is negotiating just to make a few guest appearances as she’ll be shooting her own show, season two.

       @Kikilet:  #somewhereintheworld a baby is being born, someone is getting married, someone is feeling love, and someone is wishing they had what u have

@Kikilet:  @PerezHilton I love that u comment on pop culture, but drop the “nutjob” adjective. I don’t appreciate it.

@Kikilet:  lol. the “al sharpton comment” was directed at ‘really telling people how it is.’

Many tweet responses to Kelly and they’re really funny, if you get a chance, take a look, here are a few:

@kikilet Wearing love is no excuse for your choice in clothing. 18 minutes ago via web

Reading your tweets is like being stabbed. You’re “like eeh eeh eeh” And I’m like “unh unh unh” @kikilet #inarticulatenutjob

Bethennys #somewhereintheworld checklist: Baby(check) Get married(check) Feel love(check) Wishing she had what u have? LOL @kikilet

You should join e-harmony. Maybe there’s some lonely deaf bastard, with no sense of smell, that you could hook-up with. NUTJOB @kikilet

kikilet works VERY hard!No1 else spends as much time tweeting nonsense &taking random pics of herself!She should get paid overtime!

In other news, Patti Stanger lost her mind and flew off the handle at a stylist, the audio is here:


I’ve always thought that Patti Stanger was a royal bitch, I think she’s rude and condescending to anyone she feels is beneath her or works for her, even her clients and the ladies in her “club”.  We’ve seen no evidence of her success, with one or two a season that they put on the air, her success rate is horrible!  I think that if she truly was successful and her efforts resulted in even one marriage, we would see it on the air.  We’ve seen nothing to prove her self-imposed success rate.

As far as I know, Bravo hasn’t announced any air date for Stanger’s show to begin airing again, the fact that Stanger appears in the Bravo Summer Ad led me to believe that she would be on the air soon, but I certainly don’t miss her! 

Jill Zarin has given an interview on her opinions of the DC Housewives, you can read that here:

In case anyone hasn’t heard, Bravo’s Top Chef won an Emmy last night for reality competition show.  I must say since it was awarded for last season’s show, it was well deserved!  Congratulations to Chef Tom, Padma and all the Top Chef team.

Unrelated to Housewives, Jezebel has a nice roundup of the Emmy glamour with good photos of all of the gowns if anyone is interested…


Stay tuned for the RHONJ Reunion blog coming next!

 RHONJ Preview blog:

Bravotv.com has released about 6 or 7 preview video’s of the reunion although 3 of them are flip cam video’s made by Andy Cohen during breaks in the taping.  I must say he earned that vacation that he just returned home from, he looked exhausted at it was only 3:00pm in one of the videos.

I think I can safely say that out of the four ladies (five if you count Kim G, who does make an appearance) Teresa Giudice makes the biggest fool of herself and shows just how low class and dirty she can really be.  She has the nerve to scream directly in Danielle’s face, push Andy Cohen down into his chair and scream at Andy to “get her ass back out here” when Danielle leaves the set. 

I don’t know who Teresa thinks she is talking to (or screaming at) but we’ve determined that Andy Cohen, like him or hate him, is considered a “boss” to the Real Housewives.  This came up during the last season of The Real Housewives of New York when Kelly Bensimon called him a liar, not only on camera during the reunion but on Twitter during a live airing of Watch What Happens Live. 

There seem to be no consequences for Bravo cast members for treating Andy Cohen like a trained lap dog, it is embarrassing for him.  I’m sure he makes enough money to compensate him for being treated like absolute shit on the air, but imagine his colleagues, peers and other network executive’s feelings about this man, he must be the laughingstock of the industry.  It is about time he demands some respect from these ladies. 

I think that many of us would like to see some consequences for this behavior because we all know that no one in the real world would get away with treating other people this way, whether it is a co-worker, boss or client. 

Most of us were outraged by Kelly calling Andy Cohen a liar, but Teresa physically pushing him down into a chair like she was tossing a rag doll aside is substantially worse.  Add to that Teresa screaming at Andy to “Get her ass back here” referring to Danielle.   Possibly there were consequences that we may never know about, but somehow I doubt it.  Apparently if you bring ratings into Bravo, you can abuse their VP of Programming all you want to.

With each of these incidents, I lose more and more respect for Andy Cohen, he is really becoming a sap and a whipping boy for the housewives.  Even Kathy Griffin, who is a much bigger personality than any housewife, shows Andy some respect.  Stars that don’t appear on Bravo show Andy respect, Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kelly Ripa all seem to adore him. 

I certainly hope that there is much more to the reunion that what we’ve seen in the few previews, if this reunion is simply three (sometimes four) ladies all yelling at and bombarding Danielle with insults, it may be entertaining for a few minutes, but two solid hours of it will become draining!

It’ll be interesting to see if Andy Cohen gives Danielle some time to speak, he certainly made everyone be quiet during the New York reunion in order to let Kelly speak, he even called them bullies because they wouldn’t be quiet long enough to let Kelly tell her side of the story.  We were forced to endure Kelly ranting on and making absolutely no sense for several minutes.  Kelly was allowed to interrupt Bethenny talking about Jill’s behavior only for Kelly to say, “It’s crazy!”  (Thanks for your input Kelly but I’d rather hear what Bethenny has to say)

In any case, Danielle deserves at least the same amount of respect as Kelly.   I am really hoping that Andy doesn’t allow constant berating and criticizing of Danielle without allowing her to speak.  I doubt that she’ll say anything interesting either, but she certainly deserves the right to speak. 

We see Caroline telling Danielle that she has physically threatened every member of the cast and she should be medicated.  Jacqueline is shown screaming at Danielle to “shut your mouth” and obviously Teresa screams at Danielle in almost every preview. 

I would like to hear Caroline’s explanation of her accusation that Danielle physically threatened everyone there and I certainly hope it isn’t going back to last season when Danielle says, “I’ll show up at your door and I won’t be alone”.  That was over a year ago and obviously it never happened, additionally Danielle explained that already at the last reunion, stating that she was “very angry”.  If Caroline took that seriously and is concerned for her safety, she is the one who needs medication and is obviously only bringing up last year’s nonsense because there isn’t anything from this season to point to.

Jacqueline seems to have a bit more self-control than her friend Teresa, but we do see her chasing Danielle off the set and Andy Cohen dragging her back, we also see Caroline gritting her teeth as she tells Danielle that she’s not allowed to mention Dina’s name.  Wow!  I hope Caroline didn’t expect to film all day without anyone mentioning her sister, and we all know that was never going to happen. 

These women may have more reasons than we know to be so infuriated by Danielle Staub but based on what we’ve seen on screen this season, it is out of line and obsessive.  I would really like it if some new information came out during the reunion that explained the excessive hatred for this woman.   The crime Danielle committed 25 years ago just doesn’t cut it anymore.  If Jacqueline spouts off Danielle’s list of criminal charges again, it will show just how desperate they are to have something on Danielle, anything at all because we’ve heard it at least 6 times this season from Jacqueline already.  Frankly, Jacqueline looks more idiotic with each ranting.  You can’t keep hanging your hat on something that happened so long ago, something that has been done and paid for especially since nothing like that has happened since.  It does seem that Danielle has learned her lesson and her criminal life is over.  I’m sure if there were more, it would have come out by now. 

Regardless of Caroline’s teeth gritting outrage, I’m sure we still don’t find out the real reason that Dina left the show at the reunion and I doubt Caroline will explain her hysterical outburst at Danielle from last year’s reunion.  It was obvious that they had to talk about Dina as she was part of the show this season, if even for just a few weeks.  (Personally, I didn’t miss her at all, but I wouldn’t have missed any of them) 

I have my theory, as I’m sure most of you do as well, I think that Dina leaving the show had absolutely nothing to do with Danielle, but it was a good way to turn Dina fans against Danielle even more than they already were.  I think that Bravo wasn’t happy with the lack of storyline there particularly since Dina’s daughter wasn’t allowed to be on the show.  Dina’s husband refused to be part of the show and so we’re left with Dina and her Zen Energist and her two cats.  Rumors are buzzing that Dina won’t be on next season either with or without Danielle if her daughter, Lexi won’t be allowed to film.  

Dina claims it was her choice to skip the Italy trip and that she refused to attend the reunion, I still hold firm with my belief that she was neither invited nor allowed to be at either event.  You don’t get to quit then return for benefits like a free trip to Italy and you don’t get to quit but return to have your say at the reunion either!  The way that Dina quit, blaming another cast mate really stuck it to Bravo by basically saying that they’ve put Dina in harm’s way by forcing her to film with Danielle.  I don’t think that anyone believes that Danielle is truly a physical threat to anyone, particularly since she seems to be the one who was physically assaulted this season and verbally abused by Teresa at the reunion.  Caroline managed to film all season without being in the same room with Danielle, why couldn’t Dina do the same?  Dina’s reason just doesn’t hold water. 

I’m not necessarily defending Danielle, I think her sex tape was an abomination, particularly since she has two young girls at home to explain it to, as well as adding to the horrible reputation she already had with fans.  What was she thinking?  Was there really that much money to be made on this tape?  I seriously do not get it. 

Speaking of the sex tape, I noticed that during one of Andy Cohen’s flip cam commentaries, he noted that he would be asking Danielle about the sex tape.  Another clue that he is treating New Jersey very differently from the New York cast. 

Jill Zarin wasn’t asked about Amazongate and at the time, I defended Andy saying that he was discussing only issues that occurred on screen and that was acceptable.  However, if he is going to bring up Danielle’s sex tape, why didn’t he bring up Jill writing her own review on Amazon?  Andy also said he was going to ask Jacqueline about some “mean tweets” and ask Teresa about her bankruptcy, all things that happened off screen.   There is no defending Andy Cohen when he is so unfair with his questions and topics that he chooses to discuss.

I don’t think we’ve ever had a season of a Real Housewives series with less drama, less events, or less excitement.  Did anything actually happen?   Two of the ladies gave birth, Danielle made a fool of herself at the Brownstone Charity event, Caroline’s son struggled with law school, Jacqueline’s daughter showed us just what an immature moron she is, (and continues to be) Teresa showed her true colors by being nasty to not only her number one enemy, Danielle, but showed her disdain for Caroline with her snide comments, late arrivals and rude behavior.  The trip to Italy was the only major event and it only served to show how American’s should NOT act when traveling to Europe. (please try not to scream “spank me Joe” while visiting other nations)

Off screen we learned just how much Teresa and Joe are in debt and their attitude’s and continued spending show that nothing will change in their behavior.  The contractors, vendors and hardworking people who got royally screwed by the Giudice’s will never see their money.  Teresa and Joe will continue to live in that big mansion with their four children having not paid for any of it and it is disgusting!  They knew as they were overspending that they could not afford it and there was no reason for it.  Did it really have to be imported marble and custom designed handrails?  It was all overdone for show so that they could brag about how much everything cost, yet they didn’t pay for the majority of it and never will. 

Wouldn’t we all like to build our dream house with hand chosen details and get it all for free?  Sure, but not at the expense of others who are working hard to make a living.  Teresa and Joe’s crimes far outweigh Danielle’s this season, in fact, they far outweigh any of the housewives if you add Teresa’s behavior in the press and at the reunion.  Her little stunt on her blog that “secretly” spelled out Fuck the Hater’s was disrespectful to not only fans of the Housewives, but to Bravo who gave her all of these opportunities.  Teresa’s most recent blog even wishes Danielle well, is she kidding?  Another idiotic housewife who thinks fans are stupid.  Sorry Teresa, you’re the stupid one!  Enjoy your “fresh start” at the expense of all of those contractors who may have to fold their business’s because of people like you!

I’m sure long after the reunion and lost footage episodes air, we will be watching Teresa’s bankruptcy unfold in the New Jersey courts, at some point in time, hopefully, she and Joe will have to answer to the lies that they included in their bankruptcy filing paperwork.  However, after watching how Joe Giudice got off basically scot free while driving drunk, I’m not holding out much hope.

Rumors also fly about Danielle losing custody of her 12 year old daughter Jillian, somehow I don’t see that happening for one reason.  I cannot see a judge splitting up the two sisters.  If Tom Staub were planning on filing to receive sole custody of Jillian, wouldn’t he file for both girls?  These two sisters have never lived apart and while we see them at odds sometimes on screen, we also see them loving one another.  They are the one constant in each other’s lives and I just can’t see anyone allowing them to be moved into two different homes. 

So I think the reunion shows are going to be shocking, jaw dropping and quite possibly infuriating!  Infuriating because based on what we’ve seen, Teresa not only gets away with screwing people out of money, but gets away with screaming in Danielle’s face and shoving Andy Cohen.  Personally, I think she needs to answer for her behavior!

  1. Justanothermary says:

    I just read a tweet from Nasty T and she says “I don’t know why my blog from last week isn’t up on BravoTV. I turned it in last week.


    • kit says:

      Wow, Teresa is just bitching about everyone now isn’t she? D, Caroline, Jacko, Andy, Bravo website staff…..she’s 5 seconds from a full blown meltdown.

  2. Abby Someone says:

    The show hasn’t even started and I am already loving this. The replies to kiki’s tweets had me laughing so hard my son walked in to see what was so hilarious.

    In general I really like Andy but I will say as a mediator on the reunions I find him utterly useless. No offense fans, I would just prefer someone who asks the tough questions and cuts off the right people. He is a bit of a pushover, however, that does not excuse Teresa pushing him over. Not only did she not apologize for it, she explains it like it’s a natural reaction to someone holding you back. I can maybe understand doing a few things out of character in order to make good tv, but this woman went to that reunion on the warpath. She had no intention of just disliking Danielle from a distance. It is clear by the way she behaves, blogs, pushes, spends, etc, she does NOT care that what children are exposed to. It completely escapes her that children learn from example.

    I am no fan of Danielle but for the life of me I can’t see why these women are competing to see who dislikes her the most. This campaign of hate against a nutball doesn’t make these women look good. They acknowledge she is unstable then continue to debate her. Haven’t these women ever heard the phrase “Never argue with a crazy person, people might not be able to tell the difference.” ?

    Looking forward to more Lynn. Thanks.

    • Kat says:

      @Abby Someone~ You wrote, “I am no fan of Danielle but for the life of me I can’t see why these women are competing to see who dislikes her the most.”

      It must be the storyline, that’s the only explanation I can think of, and it is the only story this franchise has as the real drama happening behind the scenes has been ignored. Adultory, bankruptcy, criminal charges, sex tapes…

      • Abby Someone says:

        I think they all have bandwagon issues. One person gets emotional so they all cry. They all want camera time so the drama escalates and before you know it the fur is flying and people forgot they should have a reason to get to a level of rage.

        In case studies people with high IQs turned out to be happier seniors. Probably because they have the sense to walk away from toxic people instead of engaging with them ad nauseum.

        I admit, I am going to laugh over Danielle’s theatrics. I will forget for the moment that the fact that she has kids makes me sad and I will just watch the reunion and laugh. They are all so caught up in the drama, it’s like watching horrible ad-lib audition tapes for Dynasty. Danielle and Caroline write the best, bad dialog. I wonder how many times tonight we’ll hear “You know what….” / “let me tell you sumpin…”

        • Quincy IL says:

          Wow…. I learned to not engage. I have this little voice in my head that can say, “This person is a real jerk,” but I don’t say it. I taught me children to do the same. Life is so much easier and the bad guys don’t get ammunition to fling back at you.

          • Abby Someone says:

            I completely agree. Maybe that is why the housewives fascinate me. My husband is simple. He tends to like everyone but if he doesn’t, he can’t be around them. He would gladly turn the channel on RH. Me, I like to observe. Even if I don’t like someone, I become fascinated with what makes them tick. (to a point)
            In the case of Teresa, I dislike her to the point that I want to watch and see if she gets her comeuppance. It didn’t happen with kiki but then she has a special crazy filter where she can turn insults into sunshine.

          • Kat says:

            I took a Myers-Briggs Type Indicator many years ago. I’m an INTP. My nature is to analyze and keep to myself. I’m terrible in large social situations unless I can get lost in the crowd.
            I’d be mortified to have my life on TV.

  3. boston02127 says:

    Lynn–Thank you for the new blog.

  4. I’m wondering if the reunion episodes are going to piss me off as much as the entire season of RHONJ did. I hope Teresa, Jacqueline, and Caroline are made to back up their accusations against Danielle. No way in hell I will accept their word on anything- I want verification by a neutral 3rd party. Of course I’m already pissed that nasty Kim G is going to be on. I think I’ll take a couple antacids before tonight’s reunion part 1

    • kit says:

      Explain to me how getting physically violent with a Bravo staff member doesn’t result in automatic firing? Other show have a ‘no hands on’ policy-you touch a cast member in hostility and, bang, you’re gone. Apparently, in the case of crazy violent Teresa, you can get physical with actually network staff and still not be axed. I know this reunion is going to piss me off-I’m pissed off already! I’m so with you, Andy had better be as hard on the others as he will no doubt be on Danielle. I can’t take another absurd one sided reunion(hey, how about challenging nutjob Kelly on the whole absurd bullying thing, eh Andy?!) ugh

  5. emt2 says:


    Anyone know how long Dina has been friends with Teresa? T and Joe weren’t at Dina’s wedding to Tommy a few years ago, were they?

    • boston02127 says:

      @emt–I don’t think it’s been that long. At the baby’s Christening party when Teresa and Joe had the first dance with the new baby, Teresa said she’s always done this. Dina said she’s never heard of the “first dance”. I’m assuming that she wasn’t at baby #3’s Christening. Teresa’s kids are not that far apart in age. I’d think if the were good friends that Dina would have been to all of the kids Christenings.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        They still could have known each other for some time. I heard Tersea say that Dina and Jac are the ones who got her on the show.

        Typically at baptisms only family is invited, especially if the family is large. With this baptism since Dina was the GM- and Bravo and others were help footing the bill she went all out.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Bravo replayed season one today and Teresa said she’s been friends with Dina for 12 years.

  6. emt2 says:

    I’m rewatching My Big Fat Wedding with Dina and Tommy. It’s interesting.

    She starts to cry and Caroline tells Tommy to comfort her (of course). Dina says, I don’t need comfort, I need a tissue and some drugs. Um……

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      What is she crying about?

      • boston02127 says:

        She’s crying because she’s marrying Tommy Manzo and she doesn’t want to share her cloths.

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          ROFL boston! I was wondering if she was crying because she found out he cheated twice but that was before she married him.

        • kit says:

          Rofl! He really does give off a, uh, certain vibe doesn’t he?

          • Realife says:

            Exactly! This has always been my take on him and when I mentioned on another blog I was cyber shouted down! Albi too if you ask me. I think the sister’s “relationship” with his best friend is fake.

            I have never thought that Dina was pretty. I think she looks very different now than when she was on MBFFW. Plastic surgery much? Of course not, according to her “Tommy says he married me for my face.”

        • JenD says:

          She cried becuz he didn’t care about her. When she asked TOMMY to start inviting people, he said “It ain’t my fault you don’t know nobody”. BTW i’m not on twitter, but i’m thinking about starting one on Tommy Manzo’s name…can’t find a pic yet.

  7. emt2 says:

    I’m sorry but Dina is pretty tacky and has no taste. lol

    Her wedding bouquet looks like huge weeds that have a diamond butterfly ornament sticking out of it for some reason. Like, wtf?

    Ok, going to parents house for dinner.

    Talk to you guys later!

      • boston02127 says:

        emt, TY for posting that video. I’ve never been able to watch it on other sites. I was dying to see it. Dina doesn’t have very elegant taste.

        • jezzibel says:

          wow the tackiness knows no bounds

          • anniieee says:

            did she really say to her “friend” this bracelet is worth a million dollars.” Tacky tacky tacky…

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          it was pretty tacky and her bouquet looked like a bunch of seaweed!

        • TLM says:

          Surprisingly in the midst of the tack-a-rama, she picked a gown that did not look like a Vegas showgirl’s costume. I was surprised she was so covered up, although I think she may have erred on that side, looking almost like a nurse from the waist up. I would have expected deep cleavage and her implants to be pushed up to her neck, with crystals hanging all over the dress like a chandelier.

      • Oh my gawd- I had no idea Dina is as tacky as Teresa. I’m at a loss for words other than gaudy gaudy gaudy…

        • JenD says:

          I think Teresa and Dina have the same personalities, but Dina hides hers well in new crowd.

          • Quincy IL says:

            Dina receives Schadenfreude (pleasure from the pain of others.) How else could you describe the tweets that she sends to Lynn?

        • MAMAZ says:

          How many cliches can you fit in one freaking wedding?!
          Bagpipes, harp, trumpeters (what were those weird outfits they were wearing?),doves, pyrotechnics. Horrendous!
          Her flowers were bizarre. I sort of liked her dress. The sweater top was beautiful and I liked the skirt when it was bustled but not with the full train. I didn’t think the veil went with it at all.
          The groom, pretty sad that he’d rather be working the party than be introduced.

      • sophie says:

        Boy, Christopher Manzo sure looks a lot like his uncle Tommy.

      • TLM says:

        If this is “the best of the best of everything,” I’ll take the worst, thank you. Even the cake was ugly and tacky… how is that possible??? How hard is it to get a cake that isn’t tacky?

        I don’t understand the fascination with ice sculptures from this crowd. I think they are generally passe. I will concede that some can be beautiful, but the Jersey crowd seems to go for the tackiest possible designs, no matter what the medium.

      • TLM says:

        This wedding makes me want to get married at City Hall. Complete lack of taste, excess and gaudiness.

        Dina said the introduction is her favorite part of a wedding? It’s my least favorite. I *hate* the whole, “Mr & Mrs [fill in husband’s name here]. It seems such an anachronism. You may as well go back to “Man and Wife” rather than husband and wife, where the woman loses all identity. How about, “Would everyone please welcome Tommy and Dina, husband and wife”? Am I the only one this introduction thing bothers? Even Bethenny conceded the “Mr & Mrs Jason Hoppy” thing, even though she said she wasn’t taking his name.

  8. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    From Reality Zen with Jenn:

    “This Tara rumor has been around since January and Joe’s DUI. It’s very possible that this is just another crack in the facade of the whole “Fabulous” life being portrayed for the cameras, and why all the ‘woman’ of Largos del Francisco are so fiercely loyal to Teresa.

    However, where this stinks is the fact if Danielle knew soooo much about Joe’s indiscretions, she would’ve had everyone on the phone months ago and this would’ve been huge news. But something tells me since she knew she was canned before the reunion taping because of her BSC and violating her contract with under the table production deals, she just said it to start stuff and come out smelling like a rose.”

    So was Danielle really fired because of under the table production deals????? Verrrrry interesting.

  9. anniieee says:

    okay…going to get my jammie jammies on… wash face..moisturize moisturize and read book 2… until time… Just finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and have started his second book. Girl who plays with Fire. Remember that reporter for playboy that Kelly flirted with and he asked her about the book…and she screamed “I don’t have any tattoos.” Anyway… great books..can’t put them down. See you all in a while.

      I read both and went looking for The Girl Who Kicked A Hornet’s Nest but it’s only out in hardback. Sux that the author died! I’m too cheap to buy hardbacks unless it’s from my favorite ‘The Falco Series’ by Lindsey Davis. Bought the 20th one yesterday.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Lindsey Davis: Is that the mystery series set in ancient Rome? Read one of hers long ago and made a note to read more. It’s up to 20 books now? Wow.

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          Yes. I am hooked on anything about ancient Rome. If you like those you should try Steven Saylor. His detective is in the time of Cicero. Fabulous! OH, and Lindsey wrote two other books not in the series: A Course of Honor – about Vespasian and his ex-slave mistress; a true story and Rebels and Traitors.

      • anniieee says:

        I thought I would buy both of them this weekend… but like you said only in Hardback… 25.00 is a lot of bacon for a teacher who takes care of her mom 🙂 I am at the part in book 2 where Mia and Dag were just murdered. Never read the Falco Series…now I have to go and get them!! I am so tired..hope I can stay awake to watch the reunion.

        • Had Enough! says:

          anniiee – hope you remember to SHAVE your face! And a great way to save on books – go to Amazon and buy a used copy. I do this all the time, save a ton of money. I am a book addict.

    Simon VanKempen is on a roll today…here are some of his tweets:

    there’s the right way to call some1 out on their lies & hyposcrisy & then there’s Kim G’s way-which merely makes her look as bad!

    No, Commis is the lowest – glorified apprentice, Commis, then Chef de Partie, then Sous then Exec Chef (or cook if u r KKB)

    or who’s had more plastic surgery (you know to compliment their plastic personalities)

    The chums are great, they’ve had a fantastic summer & school starts in 9 days!

  12. sydney says:

    I detest all of the NJ wives but if Danielle is worth her salt, when it comes to retribution, I can’t wait until she plays her hand re what the private dick found out about the self righteous MANZO klan and dumb ass Joe. Granted they’re all despicable but don’t live in a glass house if you’ve anything to hide. Let the games begin…..

  13. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jacq: don’t talk about my daughter. Caroline: don’t talk about my sister/family. Teresa: don’t talk about my family or finances. Danielle: WTF!?
    I really don’t believe Andy will hold anyone’s feet to the fire or let Danielle say anything of substance. We will be treated to Teresa’s attempt to top her table flip. Jacq continue to bring up Danielle’s criminal past. Caroline will go on ad nauseam about the fambly. Suggest everyone keep the volume low so you don’t get a headache! Let the games begin…..

    • Need a Hobby says:

      And Dina tweets: don’t talk about my cat.

      They want to control the horizontal and the vertical. And the audio.

      So what are they willing to talk about other than Danielle?

      So boring. OK, I wanna know about T’s fixation with head gear. Those poor kids with petunias on their heads. Lord only knows what she does to them at Easter. They probably look like Macy’s parade floats.

      • Kat says:

        No kidding! These are children not dolls.

      • They also have a fascination with “bedazzling” everything in sight. Their motto is “I have a glue gun, glitter and a dream.”

        Don’t forget Baby Nicholas dressed up like Eminem! Or worse, when Grandma Laurita was changing his diaper at the pizzeria table in Naples!

        • Need a Hobby says:

          “I have a glue gun, glitter and a dream.”

          LOL. I can see it now…..I have insomnia one night, turn on the TV and there’s the Manzo/Laurita/Guidice clan in some late night infomercial bedazzling the bejesus out of their schmattes, their children, their pets.

          • anniieee says:

            forgive me… i thought Kelly was the one with the glue gun, glitter and a dream….OHHH wait, it was pigeon feathers–leather and birdshit.

        But Teresa may have some hair of the dog to give out.

  14. kk says:

    i just read on another blog that dina’s husband & her leave separately & he has a girlfriend too like juicy. which is the real reason dina left.

    since danelle has a record she can not get in a physical fight with teresa or jac or she would lose her daughters.

    i think teresa & jac (in the previews) say i’ll beat her as* (something close 2 that) or say bring her out here is because they want to fight danelle so she’d lose her kids.

    i think danelle is smart to walk away. i have no problem with danelle saying on air the truth about their secrets after how crazy they act.

    i also watch a couple of early episodes of season 1 and early on the season she tried to be nice with the manzos.

    just my opinion

  15. sydney says:

    Amateur psychologist here…..Tommy’s body language in the limo, post nuptials, is very telling. Could he sit any further away from Dina….they’re not holding hands, cuddling, kissing….looks like he’s not the least bit interested in her. A tad cold for someone who just tied the knot don’t ya think.

  16. Adgirl says:

    Patti Stanger is an embarrassment to the Earth. A glorified Madam who apparently spends an entire 6 minutes chosing the “dates” for her “millionaires”.
    The dates are usually jumped mail order brides or soft porn wanna bes. But that’s nothing compared to the “millionaires” who appear to spend their lives playing video games in their mother’s basement.
    I’d like to know who checks the financials on the “millionaires”? Maybe their Penthouse magazine collections are valued in the millions. Let’s ask Bobby Zarin.
    Please get Stanger off Bravo and send her to VH1.

    Alex’ blog on The DC Wives is up. Guess what? Jill Zarin has started guest blogging on that show also! Check how she takes issue with Cat’s rude comments and Missy’s “passive-aggressive” behavior. Good grief! Does she never listen to herself?

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      Someone pasted that upblog and that’s what I thought too. Who the H is she to critique someone else’s bad behavior???? I remember quite clearly her comments at Ramona’s ReNewal products opening. “Who IS that? Her face was photoshopped!” and bitching about the food and on and on. The people next to her were saying to pipe down Ramona might hear you but did she? NO She kept it up. I HATE JILL ZARIN

    After you go to a baby shower and give a gift do you buy another gift to bring when you go see the baby when it’s born?

    • Kat says:

      If mom is a friend I would. I have no idea about the etiquette of the matter.
      Boston, I sometimes can’t tell when you’re serious.

    • kats2 says:

      If a close friend or family member I would. It doesn’t have to be major and can be for the Mom too.

    • dumberries says:

      I never brought a separate gift for a post-shower visit. I don’t believe anyone would expect it. More fun to wait until you see something you think is so adorable and gift it just because…

      • boston02127 says:

        Thanks guys. Yes, I’m serious Kat, I need an etiquette book!
        I was planning on cooking something to bring over to them, I’ll pick up a little gift too.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Bringing prepared food is a godsend – if this is a really close friend bring a package of diapers for the lols but will definately be appreciated.

      • Justanothermary says:

        I’m a big believer in “just cuz” presents. They are unexpected and always appreciated.

    • Quincy IL says:

      A cool gift would be a little baby sitting time so the mom could sleep knowing her infant was in the arms of a friend.

    • cusi77 says:

      Boston_ Yes. Definitely if you go to see the Mother and Baby to the Hospital you bring a present for the Baby.

    I truly hope Candy Andy takes the time on the reunion to teach the big D how to say women.

      On WWHL CandyAss Andy brought it up from a tweeter or email or something and she just stared at him like a deer in the headlights.

  23. Quincy IL says:

    If someone would tweet Squirrels for me. I left her a message on her book blog.

  24. kk says:

    I think Teresa is trying to fight Danielle because Danielle has record & if she appears violent she could lose her daughters. I think the manzo mob cooked this up which is why Jacqueline wants to fight her

    • kats2 says:

      Or the truth hurts and they have no self-control

    • Justanothermary says:

      I don’t know about this. It has been 25 years since her last conviction. I’m sure if there had been more in that time the Mob would have found out about it. At least in Minnesota, the courts don’t use records that long ago against the custodial parent. That being said, I would like that any judge who watched the show would yank those girls out of there in a heartbeat.

      • kk says:

        Just wonder the manzos were calculated enough to investigate Danielle and expose her record & name change to destroy her. I just think It is excessive if this was originally about cntract negotiations when the show started.

  25. Quincy IL says:

    I watched the preview and am confused about Teresa’s size. She published a photo of herself in a bikini, but this was just recorded and she has baby fat issue. I guess she could drop a lot if she starved for a couple of weeks, but she seems to be fond of pasta.

    • Jennifer says:

      I saw that too- my theory is Life and Style (the mag the bikini pics were in) photoshopped it …… Can’t answer about the commerical but maybe starvation but currently I think she still wrestling with baby weight issues (which is why she hates B)

      • Quincy IL says:

        It’s not easy to get back into shape. I think Jacqueline gained a lot for her baby also. Being on TV is probably a great motivator.

    • truelifediva says:

      She looked very flabby in that SizzleTan commercial. I was like, “Why is she in a bikini? Her tummy is flabby and her thighs look like they are melting.” Way too soon after giving birth and after 4 kids I think she may have to keep Spanx on automatic reorder from QVC 🙂 Not everyone has a bikini body, just saying…

  26. Justanothermary says:

    I’ve been thinking about it (yes I know I need a hobby) and I would not be surprised if Joe has had more than one fling on the side and that Teresa The Terrible knew about them all along. Everytime she does her talking head about how much in love she and Joe are and how great the sex is, I throw in my mouth a little and wonder who she is trying to convince, herself or us.

  27. cusi77 says:

    I do not know if this article was already posted…

    I am so disgusted to Danielle! If this this is true… Danielle deserved to be fired!

    “”New Jersey Housewives Reunion Spoiler: Who’s Tara? If you don’t want to know, stop reading here.

    “You will never break up my family”, Teresa Giudice screams at Danielle Staub on one of those tantalizing reunion preview tapes at Bravotv.com. ( Edited to add: the word could have been bring, not break. On today’s preview commercials, it sounds like “Break”.)

    Well folks, I have learned from an unimpeachable anonymous source that Joe Giudice has a girlfriend named Tara G. Danielle found her because she hired a private investigator and had the Manzo’s and the Giudices followed.

    Tara G., by the way, is not exactly hiding out. She attends parties and actually displays pictures of her and Joe together. She also has pictures of a baby, whether or not this is Joe’s offspring is unknown. Tamra Barney, if you recall, was in town to tape ” Watch what Happens, Live ” with Andy Cohen that night and they all went to dinner together. My source tells me Tara met Joe later that same night.

    To answer the question I’ve seen on message boards as to what Joe was doing out at 2:00 a.m. ..here’s the answer.

    Danielle has been doing quite a bit of investigating of the other housewives lately. Seems she’s got the 411 on Caroline and Albert Manzo’s activities too.””

    • kk says:

      How does she deserve to be fired for that. If Theresa chased me down a hall & my hair was pulled by Ashley I wouldn’t have waited for the reunion to tell. I would have held a press conference.

      But I hate Teresa for the BK & fraud becuz we the taxpayers have to pay her debt. Goodness knows how many families were depending on those slumlords to pay their bills

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I don’t get it either. The Fat Pack certainly didn’t have an issue with having Danielle investigated and digging up dirt on her.

        While I think Danielle is vile- Teresa far surpasses it and I would look forward to her getting what is coming to her.

    • KirksvilleMo says:

      You’re kidding ,right?
      Caroline Manzo said repeatedly in season 1 that she had Danielle investigated.
      Every other cast member has spent two years beating up Danielle every way possible over the 25 yo info that resulted from that investigation.
      IF the roles were reversed Teresa would out Danielle’s husband in a NJ minute.

      • dumberries says:

        If someone investigated my past and spread it to whole community and a national audience (without provokation and with no regard for my tween daughters whatsoever), you’d better that I would investigate them. Manzos started a war when Danielle was unprepared; Danielle equipped herself for the next strike. Even if she’s using this info for offensive measures in retaliation, still a pretty normal reaction if you ask me…

      • kk says:

        Seriously who investigates their coworkers? That was so weirdly paranoid on Caroline’s part when the show started last season to do that. I still can’t wrap my head around that they barely knew each other

        • dumberries says:

          Agree. And even if there was a reason to do an investigation, one would think Caroline would have addressed it with Danielle (or Bravo) privately to determine if she posed any danger. Dina, Caroline and Teresa didn’t need to expose her to the world; they wanted her gone (and not because she was a threat to their safety – please..). Jac sure wouldn’t want her past exposed – I admired that she and Chris disagreed with the other 3’s decision to out Danielle. Sure hope we find out what happened after that…

        • truelifediva says:

          Because Danielle is so fucking CREEPY, that’s why. You don’t get the heebie jeebies when she’s brand new bff’s with someone? Remember how she was caressing Kim D’s hand at Posche? Ugh, creepy.

  28. Jennifer says:

    I think your theory last week about Caroline and Teresa sort of falling out is true and I believe Jacqueline is choosing Caroline by calling out Teresa is her blog for being mean to Caroline…..

    Love it!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jacq knows first hand what it is like to be on the not so sunny side of the Caroline and will chose her family before her friendship with Teresa (who is becoming a liability). Teresa clearly started the riot in the Country Club and Ashley was the one who got caught….so while they say it is Danielle’s fault – they know who really caused the situation.

    OT–Here I was thinking my face was looking so good after a facial on Saturday. I was looking better…whew. And then I looked up–2 lightbulbs were out. Changed the bulbs…nah..not much change in my face. Think I may take those lightbulbs out again 🙂

    • Justanothermary says:

      I took my 75-year-old mother in for cateract (sp?) surgery. I call the next day to see how she was doing and could hear that she had been crying. I asked why and her answer was “I have seen my face clearly in 10 years, I’M OLD!” When I told her she was as beautiful as ever she said, “Well, your Dad ain’t looking so hot these days either!”

  31. Justanothermary says:

    Just a thought . . . Could the reason Dirty D got fired be due to the fact that she announced on national TV that she had body guards WITH GUNS? That certainly seems ample ground for firing in my book. Of course, YMMV.

    • kk says:

      Really really rich business men have armed bodyguards for kidnap protection. 2 of my hubby former employers had them. They even came to the Xmas party with them. It’s no big deal.

      Besides Danielle was issued them by her attorney because of death threats from her ex who is suing her. I read that article somewhere. Plus Caroline meet with Danielle ex

      • Quincy IL says:

        Who paid though? She has no money.

        • Had Enough! says:

          In an interview yesterday, she said Bravo arranged for the bodyguards. At first, I thought she meant at the reunion, but it was clear she meant at the sit-down with Caroline.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMHO – I think Bravo told Danielle to bury the hachet with the other wives and she just wouldn’t do it. And I think on her own Danielle got dirt of them all and threatened to use it. Even Bravo knows 4 or now 3 against 1 isn’t a good formula for the franchise.

      • dumberries says:

        That makes sense. Another possibility is that the other women refused to make peace or film with Danielle – don’t think Bravo could stretch out another season like that again. It’s hard for me to give any of the NJ HWs the benefit of the doubt about anything…

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Probably a combo of things. (From the pics at least one of the guys looked like an ex cop. She said they had guns. Did they really? Like I would take D’s word on anything.)

      I don’t think the sex tape thing went down all that well with Bravo. Probably the icing on the cake for someone they may already have regarded as a loose cannon. Plus the rest of the cast probably said it was either them or Danielle. And Bravo Andy seems to like the rest of the “fambly.” And really, what story line would they have for next season? More of the same? Manzo family vs Danielle is old.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      It’s not against the law to hire bodyguards and it’s not impossible to get a concealed weapons permit in New Jersey- I can’t see this as being grounds for termination. Other cast members have physically assaulted each other and not been fired so I can’t see this as grounds for termination.

      I am betting that their contract says they need permission from Bravo/Shed Media to perform outside work and that Danielle neglected to do this. This is the same situation that Jon Gosselin got into with TLC.

    • emt2 says:

      She was fired because the other housewives banded together and offered Bravo an ultimatum: it’s either us or Danielle. The women has said this time and time again and that is what happened. Point blank.

    Andy if u need some balls
    (of course I mean billiard balls)this Southern belle will lend U her rack !

The thing is they can’t handle the truth and they keep throwing out every little mistake D has done – and she is just supposed to shut up and take – I think not – Danielle do your thing girl! Jeez i can’t stand (h) them more than JILL! lol

      • tuzentswurth says:

    WTF??? These WOMEN treat Danielle like shit and then they get mad because she doesn’t call when they have babies, or show them respect or affection. They blame her for EVERYTHING. They attack her physically and wonder why she runs from them. They are all delusional. I’m so out after the final reunion airs. This is awful.

    • BambiBaby22 says:

      If she WOULD’VE called them, they would have been bitching that Danielle is stalking them!

  43. boston02127 says:

    Teresa says “do not bring up my family”. Along with the F word about 100 times.

    • babykakes says:

      T clearly says “break”, not “bring”. i have listened to it over & over again.
      it also makes perfect sense!

      She yells “mother f’er” too. Such a lady raising those four girls.

    That “nephew” Danielle brought up is the allegedly Joe’s son…

    Ok am I missing something? Why did Theresa just go off?

    • julieintexas says:

      Jaq has a big mouth – it has got her daughter in trouble and made herself look like the biggest stalker/excuse makin/liar! Her husband has got to be ashamed of her behavior/mouth. Her daughter might just be more mature then she is! Let’s be honest they are both in 5th grade!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        • vilzvet says:

          Yes!! We know Ashley was superpissed after the reunion taping, so next week Ms. Smirkface should get her turn!

  47. mookies1mom says:

    I’ve been lurking for quite a while now and Jill has now seriously pissed me off. (As opposed to being just simply pissed off at the way she has behaved and treated people, which I found completely disgusting.) Before I go on a rant I would first like to say: 1. Lynn LOVE your blog! I read it every day, the comments too if I can keep up! lol 2. I have only lurked until now because every time I think I have something original to say you all beat me to it! I agree with so many of the things written here that I haven’t felt the need to post. But as you all know Jill just has to open her mouth and insert her foot on a regular basis. 3. I apologize for my horrible spelling in advanced. I have dyslexia, what can I say? 4. I’m REALLY PISSED OFF at that idiot right now, so please forgive me while I get this off my chest.

    So, onto my rant.

    I just read Jill’s blog about the DC wives. The whole thing just set me off. But what really got me in such a tizzy are her comments about Stacie’s situation with her birth mother. As an adoptee myself, I would NEVER tell someone how they should feel, what to do with those feelings or how to go about dealing with those feelings. But not Jill! The only part that Jill got right was, “These situations are often complicated”. But in the very next sentenced states that “Her mother could have terminated the pregnancy but instead gave her life”. Every adoptee I’ve ever met is thankful that their birth mother decided to chose adoption. But how dare she even bring that up! She is just disgusting! I am in a similar situation as Stacie. My birth mother and I spoke for about a year but she would not reveal any information about my birth father. At the time I was born, abortion wasn’t a legal option. But Jill ASSumes to know what Stacie’s family situation is like. “A white woman married to a white man”. She doesn’t know that, unless Stacie stated such and I missed it. If she did, my bad. She continues to go on about how Stacie apparently needs to remember that her real parents are the ones who brought her up. How on earth could Jill know what an adoptee feels about their parents or birth parents?!?!? Oh, I forgot, this is Jill I am talking about! It’s probably in the book! She has no idea. I wondered about my birth parents for years! I was very torn when I first started looking and waited 10 years before actually going through with making any contact. By that time both of my parents had passed away. I did that partially as a sign of respect to my parents and well, honestly partially because I was scared as hell about the reaction I was going to receive from my birth mother. I didn’t want to disrupt her or her family.

    But Jill doesn’t understand the reasons why women give up their babies for adoption. Most adoptees are given up for adoption because the mother is too young and/or wants a better life for her child than she is able to provide. At least, this is my experience with all the other adoptees I meet in support groups who had made contact with their birth mother or father. (I am not a birth mother so I can’t claim to know exactly what they feel, this is just what I have heard repeatedly from birth moms.)Not Jill’s reasoning of “Sadly, she didn’t want to be a part of her babies life”. And in Jill’s infinite wisdom states “Maybe her mother will see this episode and change her mind, but probably not, so she needs to find her inner voice to help her move forward”. Yes, Jill assumes that maybe Stacie’s birth mother will see the show and “change her mind, but probably not”. She just needs to shut the f@!k up already!!!!

    If you have read this far thank you for hanging in there while I get this off my chest. I’m sorry this is so long but Jill pissed me off all season long during the NYHW. I stayed silent because everyone was posting what I was thinking. But she has gone way too far now and this and my long rant is exactly why I hate Jill Zarin.

    • Kat says:

      Welcome Mookies1mom ! I’m glad you decided to post and I liked your rant.
      8) I find Jill an awful creature. She seems blind to her own insensitivity and self centered actions toward others. She is a text book example of narcissism imo. She makes loving to hate her easy.

    • Blue Sky says:

      You are so right about Jill. She is such a loser, who would write crap like that in a blog? Good going Jill, just gave us more reasons why we Hate JZ!

      Keep blogging, you will find the people on this blog are the best. My son is adopted, & I thank God every day that we have him.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Howdy mookies1mom! That’s what we’re here for. I didn’t read the foghorn’s blog. (She gives me gas. lol)

      Jill just doesn’t have a clue. She has no idea what the situation was, much less how Stacie “should” feel.

      Thanks for posting. Don’t be a stranger. It’s an amazing group here.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Welcome aboard! I was adopted and I have also adopted a child so you are in good company as the community here is very nurturing and supportive. Looking forward to hearing your opinions and insights. And yes, we all hate Jill Zarin…alot!

    • Char212 says:

      Hi Mookie, you can come and rant anytime. Welcome. You should copy and paste this on Jill’s website, maybe she’ll get a clue. How dare she speak for someone else when she has no clue what they are feeling.

      Hugs and thanks for sharing your story.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      Thanks for your post mookies1mom. I look forward to reading more from you. You make excellent points from experience unlike obnoxious Jill, the know-it-all. You will find the sharpest quickest people here and they are a load of fun!

    • Ellabean says:

      Hi Mookie – Welcome – join the party and so nice to have you here. Keep posting and ranting. While I do not walk in your shoes , I so appreciate you sharing your very personal experince and feelings about adoption. Thank you ~

      So agreed about Jill.

    @cusi—-That “nephew” Danielle brought up is the allegedly Joe’s son…

    Is this true?

  49. myname2use4now says:

    Wow, that was a serious ape-like grunt coming out of Teresa. Danielle sure knows how to get her to go from zero to sixty in no time. D must have some serious goods on Joe/Teresa.

    BTW, Andy, you’re the only boss in America who laughs at an employee laying hands on them. Moron.

    Even though I haven’t watched the season, I decided to watch the first part of the reunion. So here’s my take so far. They look like fools and they are making Danielle look sane.

  52. well, they wasted no time going after Danielle. Dumb ass Jackie just had to make snide remarks & I’m sorry, but if anyone went off on me like Teresa did, I wouldn’t have calmly walked away. Just sayin’.

  53. Wall St Lady says:

    Wall St Man is watching in horror.He hasn’t seen the Ho wives on TV B4. He said as a child he herd loud italian women on Delancy street yell obscenities & act like truck drivers. All he wanted was to leave those memories behind & he can’t believe I would subject myself to them when he would run !

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Poor man! It’s a perfectly normal response. “Who acts like that?” is the question.

      I haven’t seen the crazy yet. I’m a West Coaster. I’ll probably tune in for the “circus” since I haven’t been watching the show. I regard the Housewife shows as a strange behavioral experiment. People with varying relative degrees of money and pretensions behaving very badly. And then they talk about how classy and fabulous they are. Bizarre. I’ve known some homeless people with far more dignity.

      Seriously, from watching this sort of thing on TV it’s a wonder our species is still around. Makes Shark Week on TLC look like Sesame Street.

      My regards to your hubby. Hope he’s not too traumatized.

      • Ellabean says:

        Need – you are killin’ me ( meaning: you are SOOO funny !) . LOL. I’ve been worried about the survival of our species too – since Real of NJ .

  54. boston02127 says:

    It’s apparent that Caroline, Jacqueline and Teresa only came on this show to beat up on Danielle.

    Caroline is the biggest liar of them all .

    • kats2 says:

      Totally agree Boston! And they brag about having lauren do their make-up and what they’re wearing as they turn it into a street brawl. What pathetic lying garbage they are.

    • BambiBaby22 says:

      Yup…Caroline is disgusting! “Don’t talk about my sister!” Because Dina is related to Miss Queen Bee, no one can say ANYTHING about her!

    • They’re bullies. Plain & simple. Bullies. Danielle is well shed of that trash. I wish her well where ever she ends up.

      • anniieee says:

        A much as i (gulp) hate to say this…Danielle is the only one acting with decency and class.

        Caroline is a big fat (lipo’d ..oh wait… portion controlled) bully…liar, mafioso wifey..
        Jac—–with a sneaky, vicious streak–she taught assley well

        Chewy–out of control..middle school madam with a mouth so foul that a rat wouldnt poop in it.

  55. mookies1mom says:

    I realize that with the reunion tonight that my previous post will probably be over looked. I’m ok with that because I too can’t wait to see what is going to happen.

    Oh man, I became so engrossed with my post I missed the the first part. Thank goodness for DVR!

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      BTW-I was going to go back later and read it!

      • vilzvet says:

        Heheh, I read your entire post even though it came right in the middle of the reunion drama! It’s okay, anytime is a good time to say I Hate Jill Zarin!

      • Justanothermary says:

        I read your previous post. I am both and adoptee and a biological mother who released a child for adoption. Both situations come with their own brand of pain. For the record, I never considered abortion. I realize that not all have the convictions I have regarding abortion, but it was not an option for me. The one thing I always want people to know it that if I had loved my daughter any less, I would have kept her. Letting her go was the hardest thing I’ve ever done in my life. I was very young and wanted to her to have the kind of life I had had growing up. I knew I could not give that to her and it broke my heart.

        For some BITCH like JZ to comment on the feeling of adoptees or bio parents who release a child is beyond disgraceful. To say that a birth mother did not want to be a part of her child’s life is the most infuriating thing I have ever read. I HATE JILL ZARIN THE THE BURNING HATE OF 1000 FIRES!!!!

        That’s my rant. I’ll stop now, but know that I understand your feelings and am sorry that bitch got you in a tizzy.

        • Justanothermary says:

          Sorry about the typos – I was PO’ed.

        • cusi77 says:

          Mary_ I admire you for sharing with us your feelings when having to give your child for adoption… I would like for some other girl who posts in this forum and is adopted to read your comment, so she can understand how her Mother loved her so much that It was the hardest thing she had to do -give her away in order for her to have a better life. You are a brave woman!

          • Justanothermary says:

            Thank you for your kindness. Later in my life I married a man with 3 sons whom I adopted and raised. We’ve been married for 25 years and I have a wonderful relationship with my sons and grandchildren. There’s isn’t a lot about adoption I haven’t experienced first-hand and would be more than happy to talk to anyone who wants to understand more about it.

  56. Oh, Jackie, you are NOT the one to preach about your superior child-raising skills, considering your own jailbird-in-training teased & harassed Danielle’s oldest daughter in person, on FB, & twitter. Dumb @ss.

    • felony stupid says:

      Yup. When Jac said “do you know your daughters cry everyday in school because the other kids make fun of them” and “I feel for them” – I wanted to reach through my TV and ring her fatty neck. It is HER daughter that has been harrassing Christine. Jeez Jaq…way to live in a fantasy world. You suck Jac and you hang on to whatever team you deem to be the winning one. Go away you stupid Vegas cow.

  57. JenD says:

    Caroline is a pussy and Dina just said that the show is “absurd shit” and glad she quit.

  58. Furalis says:

    I’m sorry but Caroline saying no bright spot in the children of Danielle is just wrong and Jac saying they cry everyday. This is frustrating. Just so wrong.

  59. kk says:

    Anyone catch Caroline is ok with strippers & escorts camera pans to Jacqueline former stripper.

    How dare Jacqueline mention Danielle kids cry at school. I wonder why when Jac is calling her mom garbage. The hypocrite. I’m sure Ashley has friends still in H.S.

    • JenD says:

      I don’t believe that for a second. Ashley said that on twitter, she just want to start shit. BTW I HATE Caroline Manzo and the rest of these bitches

  60. cusi77 says:

    I am in tears with T’s reacction to the nephew…. many years ago I got my ex- hubby cheating and I recall shouting like that… I felt her pain…

  61. Wall St Lady says:

    Dung ella’s”skirt is so short I can see her ovaries.” Jeff

  62. julieintexas says:

    How would Jaq know that D’s children cry in school – Maybe if the Lauritas/Manzos and Guidies would stop attacking and stalking thier mother they would have nothing to be crying about! Maybe they are crying because Trashley stalks Christine on twitter/internet. Take care of your own trash Jaq before trying to take out others! These people are so delusional!

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      I wish someone would put a mirror in front of horse-face jacqueline so she can see that she should not judge ANYONE. Ha, because she’s done such an amazing job raising her own felon.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Sure Jacq you know what is happening to Danielle’s kids – your daughter is the one leading the charge.

      • vilzvet says:

        Jacqueline is all about high school drama, she’s cutting, hurtful and nasty. We no longer have to wonder about where Ashley’s behavior came from, she’s the product of her mother.

  63. boston02127 says:

    Caroline is such a bud-din-ski.

    • Zoey says:

      Love, love, love that Danielle is keeping her cool! Ha. The other women look like loud mouthed idiots!

  64. boston02127 says:

    What’s with Caroline, she’s like a nervous bird sitting on the end of a branch. She’s cocking her head back and forth and her lips are all puckered up.

  65. MickeyMouth says:

    I like how they help each other clairfy, finish, and defend each other’s stories, oh and attack Danielle.

  66. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Well, I’m glad to see Miss Andy not letting Theresa gloss over this bankruptcy.

    But honestly, what is the hair across his ass against Danielle?

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      You know I have been thinking why he might have a personal peeve against Danielle and I think he might not care too much for the gay community being exploited by her as part of a way to try and build a brand for herself.

      She alludes to being gay but doesn’t come right out proudly admit to it- yet claims to be a gay advocate. It is either a paradox or a pack of lies.

  67. Obsessed with RH says:

    How the hell are they seriously allowing that ape to do whatever the hell she wants? And that PATHETIC questioning about the bankruptcy? IS SHE KIDDING? Those amounts aren’t correct? TERESA Bankruptcy documents are PUBLIC RECORD and your documents which YOU SIGNED are part of the public record…are you maybe saying that you committed fraud possibly? My god she makes me so angry.

    I have to say that they’re allowing fat ass Jacqueline to run her mouth and say whatever the hell she wants. I can say after this nonsense I will not be watching RHNJ anymore. Disgusting. Danielle is the only reason these glorified gorillas are even popular. I can’t believe I’m even saying that but I can handle crazy Danielle, whereas Teresa belongs behind bars with the tacky clothes she dresses her daughters in.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree. I knew this was going to go this way, no answers that we wanted and the bullies taking over Andy.

      • Obsessed with RH says:

        It’s so ridiculous. Maybe I should mail teresa a copy of her bankruptcy documents so she can be clear on exactly what was going on. Also, I swear to god that dumb ape needs to be told that the ENTIRE COUNTRY of Italy does NOT feel that if you have your period you cannot make tomatoes or wine. I had posted on her blog once before to STOP generalizing and say that maybe from HER town this is the case, and yet she continues to make giant generalizations. Don’t get me started on how she said she speaks fluent Italian….ha. right.

        • vilzvet says:

          Hey, I have the multi-page PDF court document of all the amounts they stiffed creditors out of, saved here in my computer to read at my leisure. How she can say that amount came from the NY Post is absurd.

          • MichellefromNY says:

            where can I get a copy of that??

            • Had Enough! says:

              I’m sure it is all over the internet, but the best place is directly through the U.S. court system, via their online case management website, called PACER. You have to register (free), but getting copies of docs costs only pennies.

            • vilzvet says:

              I definitely have it saved in my downstairs computer. If you want I can email it to you.

        • Had Enough! says:


          • Kat says:

            But that would be honest and the Real HW’s franchise isn’t known for portraying the truth.

    Caroline———SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  71. julieintexas says:

    Caroline is a piece of trash – how can she sit there and call Danielle out and make excuses for Joe – drinking and driving (who by the way could have killed one of her perfect light in the eye children) and stealing 11 million dollars from hardworking people just because they want their children to look cute! Jaq is just as trashey! WTG Caroline – you don’t own crap and make excuses for your friends CRAP!

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      Why the hell is Danielle being the one who is asked every single question and IN DEPTH meanwhile Trashy foreheadless T gets away with answering ONE question on her bankruptcy and THAT is it? I’m disgusted with Bravo right now.

  72. boston02127 says:

    All the nitty gritty questions are directed at Danielle!

  73. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Mookies1mom, I read your post and am glad you feel comfortable enough to vent here. You are among friends 🙂

  74. Obsessed with RH says:

    Jacqueline is acting like SUCH a child. She is the grown up version of Ashley. How the hell do they allow these three women to do whatever the hell they want and only Danielle has to come up with justifications for her actions?

  75. BambiBaby22 says:

    Caroline is going off the deep end…yipee ki yay…she just said. weirdo

  76. boston02127 says:

    Jacqueline is a sneaky catty bit#*!
    Teresa’s eyebrows look like a serial killers signature. ^ ^
    Caroline is sucking a lemon or has gas.
    If I were Danielle, I’d move out of the state.


    • vilzvet says:

      The sex tape wasn’t even a part of the storyline…I never took a glimpse of it and don’t plan to. However, we were treated to THREE huge Guidice parties directly after they filed for bankruptcy…how about more probing questions about THAT, Andy?

      • Justanothermary says:

        We all knew that Trog Teresa was going to get off too easy. Is she so stupid that she doesn’t know the court papers are public record? Why didn’t Andy Candyazz bring that up????

  77. Obsessed with RH says:

    I really thought that Caroline was a decent human being but she is just as trashy and classless as the rest. How the hell does T continue to get away with screaming and cursing? I was watching the reruns today and there was one episode after the table flipping where Teresa says that “she considers herself a classy lady.” I’ve come to the conclusion that she is truly delusional and since there are LUNATICS in this world who agree with her, and bravo.com which continues to coddle her ever increasing ego (and continually decreasing forehead), Teresa Giudice will never change her tune or shut the hell up until we make her irrelevant, much like JZ. I honestly think I could handle Kooky Kelly or Jill any day instead of this lunatic.

  78. OneMoreinBoston says:

    oooohhhhh that Caroline is making me so mad!!!

    She is like a little rabid pit bull, attack, attack , attack

    • Zoey says:

      Speechless! I don’t think I can watch part 2 of this crap. My blood pressure is going up and I can’t even stand this show!

      Danielle is behaving with class and answering tough questions, even after almost being assaulted, and the other heffers are just out of control.

      • kit says:

        I won’t watch 2. I don’t need the heart attack from my blood pressure hitting the roof. I’m so furious. I don’t own liquor with a high enough proof to get me through this. I need Everclear.

    • julieintexas says:

      You would think Caroline would call out – what’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong (crappy line she feeds everyone) – nope she makes excuses for these morons! She is Disgusting!!! Team Danielle Mafia – just because I can’t stand these bullies!

      • vilzvet says:

        I don’t care to watch Part II either. I sure as hell know I never want to see this group of morons ever again. WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN AND BRING US SOME NEW INTERESTING LADIES, and let’s emphasize the word “ladies”!!!

    • CheriPie says:

      omg, what was that? where to start…..Teresa is NUTS!, Caroline thinks she is Mafia MaMa and Jacq is like a spoiled little child (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree)….I’m not a fan of Danielle’s but she acted alot more mature than the other 3…
      What the heck is wrong with Teresa, saying she overreacted is an understatement.
      I found Caroline just to be a little threatening in her response to mentioning her sister.
      Jacq was just plain childish.
      You can tell Andy’s dislike for Danielle.
      I think Danielle is not as innocent as she pretends but still I don’t like the 3 against one when they are not that innocent either.

    I can’t stand Teresa & manzos.

  82. Kat says:

    Sue the truck driver that was on Survivor is missing from the Reunion show. She would be great sitting next to either Andy or Teresa. I don’t know what made me think this?

  83. BambiBaby22 says:

    It just hit me like a ton of bricks…Caroling is jealous of Danielle….I don’t know why she would be, but the little filler about Danielle’s Mafia when C was telling D sarcastically that D is perfect, is when it dawned on me…hmmm.

    And I hate the way Caroline acts like she is so much better than Danielle, when actually Caroline is lower than a snake’s belly. I never heard Danielle ever say anything bad about Caroline’s little Immaculate Conceptions, but Caroline says that Danielle’s girls don’t have a light in their eyes, WTF?

    • JenD says:

      I think Danielle is pretty, she just need to stop with the botox. She and Caroline are the same age, if not older. Caroline might be jealous, cuz she doesn’t have those legs and she ain’t being banged by younger men.

      Don’t get me wrong, I’m NOT a fan of Danielle but in comparison to these ANIMALS because that is what they are, she ACTUALLY looks saner than the other ones.

      • kit says:

        Bingo. Don’t like nutball Danielle but freaking loathe Teresa. Who has Danielle physically attacked? Who has Danielle chased through a public building? When has Danielle stiffed a half dozen of businesses with her thievery? When has Danielle endangered the public by drinking and driving?

    • She’s got problems, but I really don’t like watching someone get bullied repeatedly.

    • You are not alone. I don’t buy Danielle as the victim, I believe she’s cunning enough to stir up crap off camera that cannot be “proven”, even though it’s true.

      I see nothing wrong in Caroline’s behavior, and was cheering her on for calling D out on the charity event debacle.

      Teresa is the one that looks idiotic. Danielle also does to me because I don’t buy her act.

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        my thoughts exactly mom2…I like Caroline but she really needs to stop defending the other 2 nutjobs..hey wouldn’t that make a great storyline for next season. “:P

  86. Obsessed with RH says:

    I’m ACTUALLY happy that Danielle hasn’t backed down and she has continued to out these stupid b*tches. All of them are disgusting, have millions of skeletons in their closets and what is the real motivation for their psychosis is that they can’t stand that Danielle KNOWS all of their dirty secrets.

  87. Zoey says:

  88. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Is everyone gonna still be on here in 3hrs after the West Coast airs? I know, just kidding 😉

  89. I’m calling Caroline Manzo out. If you’ve got proof that Danielle has made physical threats against you, FILE CHARGES. Otherwise, S.T.F.U. you lying, hypocritical mad cow.

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      Well said. Amen to that. They’re all so quick to talk, but no one will actually show the proof. What was it Jill said? Show me proof, or where are the tapes or some crap like that? Well Man up Mrs. MANZO…..and if not, then SHUT up.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Yup just like the attorneys that put a gag order on Dina – lie and you will regret it – Caroline must be sooooo happy with Jacq opening her mouth and letting that one out!

  92. OneMoreinBoston says:

    Ok my stomach feels like I swallowed acid.

    Honestly, I think Bravo should send me combat pay for that episode.

    You know, I am a tough, TOUGH bitch and I can handle just about anyone, anytime, doing anything. But I have to say, I don’t think I could’ve handled what Danielle did, for as long as she did, with as much class.

    girlfriend’s grown a lot since episode one.

  93. Butters'Mom says:

    I am here watching and have remained quiet because I think I am in the minority. I still cannot stand D and think she is a liar and a manipulative psycho. I hate T and think J needs to shut her mouth but I still like C and I am surprised they cut short the whole Brownstone thing. D was not a honored guest and did not give money per the father of the sick baby. I just hate hate hate D and I actually hate to use the word hate.

    • cusi77 says:

      I am with you. Danielle malice goes silent like the snakes poison. She makes like she has done nothing… She is really dangerous. For sure!

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Well, you know I’ve always wondered about that show. I’ve always had a sneaky little suspicion that Danielle got played.

      Here’s what I mean, this is from Danielle’s Bravo blog:

      Danielle: “Kathy Innocenti, who we saw in the diner scene with me discussing Emmanuella, was not present the night of the benefit because she had purchased and given me her entire table of 20 tickets so my friends and I could sit down, and eat dinner when we got there. I know it seems like I was trying to have everyone eat for free, but I am the reason over 300 of those guests attended that night, and Kathy will vouch for that. Not only did she give me her table, her daughter was the blonde girl, Patrice who walked me in…..Caroline say what you want about me. I don’t really care. But don’t think for one second that you and your family haven’t put me in a position to where I have to surround myself with people that are a little more than intimidating to go anywhere near the Brownstone. You put me in this position, you and your entire family. It’s so easy for you to sit back with your cult of 11 siblings including yourself and their children, following me and my every move. And then to use our TV show to point out that I am the one that is crazy? …..The Manzos took away a table that was paid for and that wasn’t very accommodating. It speaks volumes for the kind of people that they are. I did invite Kim and Danny and he invited his friends who just wanted to donate money for Emmanuella. Period. ….Eight months later, in the place I am in right now, I realize I don’t need anyone protecting me. If I were invited somewhere now in the place that I am in today – I might not feel the same about my need for a man to protect me. Watching this scene unfold, I can see clearly now that maybe it would have been best if I just went myself. ”

      Ok, so I’m just going to point out:

      -If the table was purchased for Danielle, and it seated 20, who cares who she brought?
      -Dina and everyone else wanted to point out that Danielle did not contribute anything to the dinner, but doesn’t it make sense that if $ was tight she would get someone else to donate the cost of the table and then go with 20 of her friends/associates?
      -If that table was in fact bought for Danielle and seated 20, who would care about any of it since the $ went to the sick baby? oh yeah- the Manzo’s that’s who
      -If someone I knew had a sick baby, and I got another wealthier friend to buy a table that seated 20, well I’d show up with 20! Not “an entourage” but what was paid for!
      -p.s. that table just accidently disappeared right?

      And after all of it-Danielle admits she was wrong to bring the Hell’s Angels with her- she owns her shit

      The rest of the story is all hearsay from the Manzos, and people think Danielle is a master manipulator? These people should be teaching their brand of PR in college, they are that good at it.

      • truelifediva says:

        You are forgetting the interview the baby’s dad gave, you can find it on Radaronline and RealityTea.com. Did Danielle bring 300 people or does she think 300 people came because of her infamous name? The dad said the only donation from that group was a $1,000 check from Kim G. So Danielle got a free table and thinks she brought a larger crowd. Whoop dee do! You buy a ticket AND donate cash.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I do not like Danielle either. I will say that she is calm, cool and collected, but that does not make me like her. I absolutely do not believe her when she says she is not making money from that sex tape. It is very easy for her to lie and not have her face crack. The whole thing about giving money for that child’s benefit is a crock. The father said they did not receive any money from them. Why would he lie? What does he have to gain? Nothing. Unless Danielle can come up with a canceled check with her donation…I don’t believe her.

      That is not say that I think the other three are any prizes.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I think Danielle is vile- but T is the queen of nasty.

      Danielle made it clear she wasn’t in a position to give money- but she did bring recognition to the child and created a lot of traffic on their website. While I agree that her behavior at the benefit was vile, she isn’t the only one who behaves badly.

    Too bad being a classless liar doesn’t hurt.

  95. BambiBaby22 says:

    Did you see Theresa practice saying “women” when they were discussing the correct pronunciation…she really looked like she was really concentrating on it.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      haha omg yes i saw that!! It was like she was mouthing it so that she wouldn’t ever make such a silly mistake herself

  96. Obsessed with RH says:

    Now that this show has sufficiently raised my blood pressure to possibly dangerous levels, I’m going to attempt to decompress and forget that these disgusting lying sacs of sh*t exist in this world. G’night all!

  97. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Cusi77 I hate Danielle too. And Obsessed with RH called her by my name (Saint), I’m going to vomit!
    I can’t wait for this to air in Cali. Just gonna lurk until then…

  98. boston02127 says:

    Very quiet in NJ tweeter world. They all usually tweet away during the show. Caroline has a few tweets, this is one………I felt like Judge Judy…….

  99. kats2 says:

    I don’t get the gag order thing against Dina, what is that all about?

    • boston02127 says:

      @kats2– I looked it up and nothing much is posted about that yet. There is a little info on this link. (not much)


    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Dina lied about what Danielle said/did when it came to the relative of her ex husband who wanted to know about Lexi being on the show when her father did sign the consent forms…..how Caroline turned it into Danielle trying to get Lex taken away from Dina is what is interesting…….IMO it was Dina’s ex who threatened to go for custody.

    • Jennifer says:

      Dina told everyone that Danielle tried to get her kid taken away by children services or her ex husband and obviously D filed to stop her from telling story ( rightfully so if it’s no true) Now to be able to talk all Dina has to do is prove it’s true- obviously if Dina still has a an order preventing her from telling story the judge found the story slanderous, which means whatever ‘proof’ Jacq was talking about Dina wasn’t able to or didn’t want to produce in court

  100. Jennifer says:

    Ok I just saw it- Teresa brought something already talked about (D acknowledging J’s kid) then D mentions nephew- no one knew what she meant but Teresa who PAUSED and then started screaming and physically attacking

    Teresa WAS NOT attacked she clearly paused and considered how to react, that’s not emotion that’s purposefully reacting! That ‘nephew’ is more then a nephew and Teresa’s reaction gave it away- She is saying break up her family I think- had she stayed calm no one would have realized s thing was amiss… Teresa called herself out- I bet the kid is Joe’s

    Still hate Teresa more then Jill

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I think it took Teresa awhile to realize that Danielle was referring to Joe’s alledged “love child” not an actual nephew. And then she went ballistic!

      • vilzvet says:

        That went all over my head. I really thought it was a sick nephew or something…could this really be true?? This would be a huge story that most likely would have been made public by now.

      • klmh says:

        Bingo. That’s what it looked like to me…

    • klmh says:

      I heard the word break myself both times I watched it. Could be wrong though…

    • CheriPie says:

      time to figure out what nephew really meant. somebody do some checkin

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Do you think that if this kid really is Joe’s child that it hurt her more that the mistress gave him the son he always wanted?

      • cusi77 says:

        She acted like a “hurt animal” and that just happens when D touched the nerve, just my point of view… and the reason Andy didn’t react in a normal way when Teresa pushed him.

    • temporarily me says:

      She said, “You are not going to BREAK up my family.” I am hearing impaired and the captioning said break. The captioning has to be approved by the network or show, so whoever has the job to verify these things so they can’t get sued declared that she said BREAK.

  101. boston02127 says:

    I hate how Andy began to talk to Teresa about how strong she is after she pushed him. Why wouldn’t he have said “don’t ever touch me”?

  102. cusi77 says:

    Boston_ I left you a comment in your site. Email me, please.

  103. boston02127 says:

    One good thing. Caroline will never be able to clean up after this. She’s finally exposed for being the wacko trash she has always been.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      sadly she will think she is still the noble matriarch and that anything wrong is because Danielle made it so…..Caroline is so transparent when she opens her mouth.

  104. WindyCityWondering says:

    here goes the leopard and lace comment – I am sorry but I didn’t get Danielle comparing Teresa’s children to dogs…..we know they are not dogs and T dresses them like a cross between Madonna and hookers.
    This has been disappointing – 3 against 1 and Andy doesn’t have the balls to level the playing field or call them out on their nonsense (like they would stop anyway lol). So I say bring on Ashley and let Danielle get it on….fair is fair.

    • CheriPie says:

      I just took it to mean Teresa has lousy taste in clothes which we all know anyway. The kids look silly all the time. Who dresses their kids like that, no sane person.

  105. cusi77 says:

    Looked at Danielle implying Teresa dress her kids like D dresses her animals and then she backs up… D is a coward… troughs stones and hide her hand! What an awful human being… I would never IN MY LIFE have talked like that about any human but this is the first time I see one and one of the worst specie

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Sorry- I just don’t see it.

      Danielle is a gold digger, pure and simple.

      She is egotistical, self absorbed, and absolutely full of herself. A prima donna with delusions of grandeur, but I just don’t think she’s a bad person.

      made a lot of mistakes for sure, but she’s not what Bravo and the Manzo Mob are making her out to be.

      • truelifediva says:

        Danielle wants the Fambly to admire her like she thinks every else does.
        19 engagements
        butler that followed her around carrying her stilletos and pouring champagne
        had $50’s and $100’s thrown at her boney ass when she was “burlesque” dancing
        pay attention…only married ONCE
        has sex on hood of car in church parking lot so loud neighbors call police and priest flicks lights to try and stop it, but is a devout catholic
        waiting for someone to come save her and daughters

        I wouldn’t want to hang out with her skeezy ass either. but once they signed contracts they were “co-workers” and had to suck it up at least a few times so they took turns.
        When I was a hairdresser we had a few looney tunes like Daniele come thru. You had to grit your teeth because she was a customer and it was up to the stylist to turn down a customer. Not everyone could afford to turn away business, no matter how disgusting the patron.
        I guess what I’m saying is Danielle is allowed to be who she wants to be and everyone else is allowed to be repulsed by it.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Cuzi – it is a merry go round and none of them are winners – they will not stop lying and they will always be hateful. These are the worst example of women who are pretending to be fabulous housewives. At this point – all we can do is laugh.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      They’re all liars. I would not defend a single person on that show. Caroline and Danielle are on the same level. The difference is that Danielle is calm so she comes off better.

  106. Great blog! I was laughing out loud at the comments to Kelly!
    I didn’t even read her tweets all day. I’ve been so busy with New Jersey gossip I’ve been totally neglecting my old friend Kelly.
    U reminded me that I miss [making fun of] her!

    About Patti – In the opening of her old shows she says “I have a 99% success rate”
    In the new shows she says “I have an extremely high success rate”
    Just sayin

  107. jean says:

    Caroline looks horribly older with the facial expressions and lipgs and yes i think albert is also over her ugly ass and probably wishing to move on. Jac is a fat pig who is pissed trying to defend her slut, lazy daughter, and without a speck of food in site. MISS PIGGY??? Teresa, hopefully Joe will have a life without that money grubbing, classless bitch with all those poorly disciplined girls. maybe his new woman can coral these children in, cause as long as he stays with teresa, his life will remain the same boring existence that caused him to find a girlfriend and drink and drive.

      So much for the no contact-it’s over now speech from Chris.

      this girl is really a dumb f*ck, she already has a criminal complaint against her from assaulting Danielle. So now with these tweets Danielle can go back to the judge and take out a restraining order, saying that she is in fear for her life, and she’ll get it.

    • BambiBaby22 says:

      and i also noticed caroline “coaching” Jac about the answer to the question of her fertility doctor. She reminded Jac to say “general interview” when Jac was answering the question about Danielle’s role in Jac’s pregnancy.

  111. ShelleyT says:

    So what did everyone think of the attire of the ladies?
    I think Danielle looked very nicely styled/ Jacqueline was bursting out of that
    butt-ugly dress/ Teresa’s dress was hideous/and Caroline looked like she was “Spanxed” to the Max!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      they really need to find dresses in their REAL sizes – one couch reminds me of sausages….Caroline really shouldn’t do the one shoulder thing and Danielle looks interesting – the shoes don’t go with the rest of her outfit.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I thought Danielle looked slightly hookerish. Caroline looked like she was trying to be the matriarch. Teresa take note…..big flowers in general are a no-no whether they are on a dress or stuck to your child’s head. Jacqueline actually looked nice. Boobs on display, but that’s pretty normal.

    oh man-time to detox…sleepy…I hope I don’t have nightmares of prostitution whores and their piercings …

  117. Amber...Real Wife says:

    A few points…

    The nephew comment made Theresa go ballistic! You saw her confusion, then realization and then fury! WOW Could this be the smoking gun? A baby boy for Joe?

    Jacqueline has been jabbing since the start. She’s insulting D, helping Theresa and Caroline, in other words, starting or joining the gang bang. Whore-rible.

    Caroline is acting rough and tough with Danielle, while coddling Theresa, trying to soothe the savage beast insisting this is what Danielle wants. Really? It seem this is what Theresa wants to do. She wants to insult, intimidate, assault and would love to batter Danielle. That is what Theresa wants to do.

    Danielle is responding but I am disappointed that although she is showing us their crazy venom, she is letting alot of insults go unanswered. She has not insulted the others parenting skills. Which she could easily do. She allowed Caroline to feel loved in her decades old relationship, and didn’t rip into her not being burlesque. LOL I wish she would have gone off on them a few times.

    RE: The Browstone affair… I believe Danielle did get donations for the child. We saw KimG give a check to the family that night. There could have been others. Caroline was upset that the family chose Danielle and not her or Dina for the check presentation. Later after the fiasco, I believe the child’s father was persuaded by the Manzos, to make those claims to encourage viewers to make donations. Do you think a parent needing money could agree with the Manzos in order to get thousands of donations from BRAVO fans?

    If Danielle did get fired, it’s probably because she moved from New Jersey. TA-DA!

    • CheriPie says:

      did you ever think she might have just said enough is enough and left the show herself? I know I would have.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I don’t agree about the father of the sick little girl. If Danielle did donate $6,000 instead of the $300 that the father claims it’s easy enough to produce a canceled check. Also, Danielle did have a table, which was paid for by a friend, which seats 10. The father said that she brought about 25 people, including Hell’s Angels. I have to agree with the father about why does anyone need to bring Hell’s Angels for protection at a fundraiser for a sick little girl. It was badly done by Danielle

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        I didn’t hear she donated 6k, I understood she got commitments for 6k. So now we have 300 from Danielle, KimG’s check and the purchased table too. You could be right. Either way the parents of the child did get plenty of donations from BRAVO fans and the child is in remission. And yes Danielle was absolutely wrong in bringing 5-15 extra guests.

  118. this show was disgusting. that animal treesa is certifiable. i thought Stanger was most disgusting thing in Jersey but I was WRONG. treesa is a disgusting, narcissistic, self absorbed Baboon who CANNOT control herself. she starts at Danielle with insult after insult and dumbass jack just keeps chimin in (as stupid as her 17 yr old spawn) as if the shit that happened 2 years ago at her overmortgaged( and no longer hers)beachhouse even matters anymore. they are stretching that beyond belief, it is no longer relavant ,(SP?)
    I bet when Caroline watches this she will be ashamed of the way she acted. she was a BULLY. I can’t stand any one of them.
    I am prouder of the “Jersey Shore” at least they act their age.
    i found it funny how once Andy told tree he wasn’t kidding and did she understand, she seemed to snap out of it.
    Im glad I didn’t go to high school w tree-can you imagine what it must have felt like seeing that comming down the hall”lookin at you” shudder

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Actually I thought she snapped out of it when Caroline told Andy that Danielle’s partner Lori, tried to come after Theresa. She may have realized that Danielle wasn’t alone and SHE could be attacked also.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        yeah I found that funny – the sides were evening up! they are such a pack mentality bunch of liars….Laurie could have snuck up behind Teresa and pulled her hair – Teresa could have gotten a forehead out of this mess!

  119. Olivia says:

    Disgraceful. Demented. Dirty. Demeaning.

    I am sure there are more apt adjectives to describe this unsavory hour but these are the first to come to mind after wasting my time following this horror show for 2 seasons.

    What the Manzo clan failed to fully understand from the outset was that they were dealing with a full blown sociopath that is Danielle Staub. They figured they were dealing with another woman just like themselves that they could bully and shutdown because they only considered she wanted to enjoy their “sainted” company and they banned together to not let that happen.

    By overlooking her true pathology, and she is seriously disturbed no matter how much you wish it otherwise, they were too stupid in their own smugness to accept the simple fact that they were up against a person determined to do whatever it takes to remain relevant in their world even to the point of absurdity.

    These women have attempted to show themselves for something they are not. They want so much for the rest of us to see them as content, secure in their marriages, and capable of living large. Much of that is an illusion as we have come to learn.

    For these women to feel a sense of importance, they must have someone else to look down upon. Danielle fit the bill. A convicted felon, stripper, possible prostitute, a proven liar, they had found a reason to feel good about themselves and she came fully equipped to fill that bill. But they overlooked her sociopathy to their own detriment. Danielle was not going peacefully and was bound to take a few scalps along the way.

    I am convinced that there was much going on behind the scenes that we were unaware. Little bits and pieces began to emerge but not enough to cover the entire picture. Something happened with Dina. Something they are not willing to discuss. Danielle is quite capable of lying and she did so again tonight during much of the questioning that was put to her. That being so, I am sure that she spread many, many rumors about this “family” and the truth was not necessarily something she relied on to make a point.

    The Manzo’s never took her seriously and for this they will pay the price. She has managed to rip away the carefully crafted facade they created. They simply believed that by ignoring her and shutting her out she would just go away. Unfortunately for them, Danielle’s mental illness was what they were up against all along yet in their moral righteousness they failed to recognize it.

    The “nephew” comment alone is justification for that diagnosis. He is either the child of this Tara, or the son of her only brother whose wife is rumored to loathe Teresa. The cat is out of the bag and they owe it all to Danielle who just took them down from their collective pedestal since she managed to “trump” them with a lift of an already permanently sculpted eyebrow.

    Good to see that entire mob having to explain this one.

      Well said and very insightful. I got a lot out of your perspective Ms. Olivia.

      nicely put – Danielle may have some problems but the others have unsavory secrets, which makes them vulnerable and attacking in number is their chosen method to silence anyone who dares to pull the curtain aside.

    I do not know if this article was already posted…

    I am so disgusted to Danielle! If this this is true… Danielle deserved to be fired!

    “”New Jersey Housewives Reunion Spoiler: Who’s Tara? If you don’t want to know, stop reading here.

    “You will never break up my family”, Teresa Giudice screams at Danielle Staub on one of those tantalizing reunion preview tapes at Bravotv.com. ( Edited to add: the word could have been bring, not break. On today’s preview commercials, it sounds like “Break”.)

    Well folks, I have learned from an unimpeachable anonymous source that Joe Giudice has a girlfriend named Tara G. Danielle found her because she hired a private investigator and had the Manzo’s and the Giudices followed.

    Tara G., by the way, is not exactly hiding out. She attends parties and actually displays pictures of her and Joe together. She also has pictures of a baby, whether or not this is Joe’s offspring is unknown. Tamra Barney, if you recall, was in town to tape ” Watch what Happens, Live ” with Andy Cohen that night and they all went to dinner together. My source tells me Tara met Joe later that same night.

    To answer the question I’ve seen on message boards as to what Joe was doing out at 2:00 a.m. ..here’s the answer.

    Danielle has been doing quite a bit of investigating of the other housewives lately. Seems she’s got the 411 on Caroline and Albert Manzo’s activities too.””

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Allegedly Juicy cheats on Teresa and you’re disgusted with Danielle?

      Since the alleged mistress isn’t really on the down low according to this article, it wouldn’t take super duper PI’s to find her. Sounds like all one would have to do is have one’s hair done at the local salon hang out to find that out. Seems everyone’s all up in everyone’s business over there.

      There were rumors online IIRC from locals before the show’s season 1. FWIW.

      I’m sure we’ll hear more of this. Sorry, I just can’t get up a lot of steam if Juicy’s playing hide the salami with someone and it comes out. That’s the risk. Glass houses.

      Now if this is all BS and Danielle is peddling it, that would be disgusting.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Small towns have big secrets – this one is a standard – hubby has an affair that produces a child, everyone pretends they don’t know to save the wife’s feelings…..the way Teresa acts is enough to make Joe leave her and she knows it – hence the animalistic behavior and denial of all that others know to be true.

    That “nephew” Danielle brought up is the allegedly Joe’s son…

  122. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Listening to the Mob back Theresa’s interpretation of Joe’s accident is annoying and enabling. They help her craft her story and add the accompanying reasons for the drinking. Danielle is more vocal with her thoughts on the issue saying she wouldn’t get smashed after a car accident. But no one, ANDY<, mentioned the BAC which was like 3 times the legal limit. Way to press and issue ANDY, or more like keep letting the Mob slide.

    I’m accepting charitable donations to collect money for a straitjacket for Teresa. I posted this earlier on Real City Housewife’s blog, http://realcityhousewife.wordpress.com/

  125. MarineMom says:

    Good Evening all ! I have been reading Lynns blog for quite sometime now. As well as your comments. I almost feel like I know all of you 🙂 This is my first time commenting. I have to say each Monday I woke up swearing to myself that I would NOT watch come 10pm. And where did I find myself every Monday night? On the couch, self medicating with nothing less than an 80 proof cocktail and shaking my head. There are no words for tonights debacle. The reaction that Teresa had when the “nephew” was mentioned, I believe she at first thought D meant Jacs child when T said “Yes I did”. Then the light bulb went off , you could see it in her face. The sky opened, the angels sang ( its the only way God can get T to comprehend anything:) and she knew exactly what D meant. I can’t wait until someone dishes the dirt and we can all be in on the “secret’. Although I do remember reading that she doesn’t speak with her brothers wife.. maybe that is the said “nephew”. Jac is useless ; she reminds me of the insignificant Countess. I did at one time respect Caroline, but not so much anymore. She began to annoy me with all her..”my babies are growing , they are going to leave me.” Nearly having a breakdown when Son #1 mentioned maybe going to law school out of state. I sent my son out of state and I admit I did cry.. Ohhh wait .. I sent him to Iraq.. not to a cushy law school. Tonight she brought herself down to the level of the others. I think her holier than thou facade is crumbling. I do think D is a certifiable, but I have to say she looked a little bit normal tonight. I don’t know if it was the company she was in – she was calm, coherent and rightfully outraged at Ms. T . After watching the coming attractions.. & Andy remarking ” that someone will be gone forever” I have come up with my fantasy ending to this reunion. D never got fired. Whatever she takes out of that bag , its not the only thing she lets out of the bag. She lets it all fly about what she knows about these “people”. Affairs, Secrets, nephews.. whatever shes got. She then gets up says “Have a nice life -I’m done” and leaves them all to pick up whatever pieces of their lives that she leaves them with. RHONJ is canceled because of all the scandals and I can go on to more constructive things like hating on JZ 🙂 Yup, my fantasy ending ..A girl can dream 🙂

  126. temporarily me says:

    I love how Teersa says that she and Joe were not born with silver spoons in their mouths and EARNED everything they have and will again. Ok, first, in your bankruptcy papers you claim that “family” and later in articles, specifically, your in-laws have been helping you out financially in the thousands monthly. So which is it? You each come from poor families and have had to build your “fortune” yourselves OR that you have received help from family. Second, you didn’t EARN it if you didn’t PAY for it. What you did is called stealing. You might want to look it up. Earning it means being able to PAY for it. Declaring bankruptcy, lying on your bankruptcy papers, shopping sprees after said bankruptcy does not make anything earned.

    Accidentally posted on wrong blog (LOL!)

    I am on a rant: sorry guys! I just want to point out, while I am NO fan of Danielle’s she did prove to be classy in one very important area. All of this time these “women” have been saying she spreads rumors, lies, etc. to the press and around town. Not once, not a single breath has ever been said about the fact that she WON in court to have Dina stop spreading lies about her. She didn’t mention it tonight while they were attacking her. She’s never spoken about it to the press. She could have truly damaged Dina’s reputation had she chosen to and didn’t. Instead, the idiots brought it up and even then she didn’t say anything about it until pressed. So who EXACTLY is spreading the lies? If Danielle is constantly spreading lies about you why don’t you go do the EXACT thing she did to Dina? Why not get a restraining order? Danielle is crazy, but she isn’t unstoppable. They act like she does all of these horrible things, but they have yet to prove it. Meanwhile, she proved it, got a judgement and kept her mouth shut.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      If Danielle actually filed something in court against Dina, there would be a public record of it. If there was something actually litigated, and no one found out about it before, it’ll be retrieved by someone now.

      • jennifer says:

        But Jacqueline and Caroline confirm that Dina was issued a cesist and decist (sorry spellign may be wrong) order which means Dina HAD to stop talking or risk lawsuit- in my view if story is true you don’t care about lawsuit because you’re right- my guess is Dina had to stop talking because she knew it was BS, and Jacqueline and Caolrine keep calling up fake proof but if they have proof PRODUCE it and then Dina can talk all she wants.

        I think Dina pulled her dauhter from show because her ex refused to sign consent form and first season she forged it…..

    The sky opened, the angels sang ( its the only way God can get T to comprehend anything:) <—–FABULOUS! Loved your take on it all!

    Caroline's smug mug and over the top sanctimony raised my blood pressure too. AND she's as much a moron as Jaq and Tree…saying the curt remark about Danielle's dog wearing leopard print was equating Tree's kids to animals? YOU MORON she was talking about her TASTE IN CLOTHES. Gawd.

    I can't WAIT for Jaq to get on the hot seat about her child-rearing skills…cough. She's a cheer leader for a gang bang and that's what this whole series has been. A gang bang of Danielle. We keep witnessing these thugs go at her, chase her out of a building like a pack of wild African dogs (i picked them cuz they have that scary yip when they hunt:), actually ASSAULT her and now they have Andy helping them. OH and next week they get to add Kim G. to their gang bang.

    I am officially TEAM DANIELLE. She was grace under fire! When SHE cried it was real and seeing her buck up and go back out there to face those maggots I nearly teared up myself. Ok, I didn't but that was pure courage! Going there in the first place was courageous. I think she did play a bad person "role", Caroline. No, it wasn't editing…she was cast in the role and played it to the hilt. I hope she finds happiness with her new friend who she may or may not be sleeping with and it's NONYA BIZ what she's doing in her bedroom now. I thought you harpies were so upset that Danielle is too open about her sex life and now you want her to go on about it on the highest rated tv show. Ya fargin bitches! She didn't put those sex tapes out there, remember? One she got stopped and the other one is sounds like someone tried to extort her "I couldn't afford to pay them NOT to put it out". HEY ANDY, that's a point you should have grilled her on if you had to pick one. Ya think maybe? Huh?

    I could rant on but I gotta be up early. I wish I had the time and energy to start a I heart Danielle blog lol. No I don't.

    Nitol 😛

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      Marine Mom, I forgot to ask you to thank your son for his service for me!!! Please. And thank YOU for raising a hero! Muah!

    • The answer to Teresa’s question (Do you–Danielle– think you dress your daughters better than I dress mine? essentially, according to my gorilla/mad cow-to-English dictionary) is a hands’ down “Yes.” Not only does Danielle dress her daughters better, she somehow raised them to act like humans instead of wild, screaming barbarians. Makes me wonder just wth is really going on here with Danielle, because if it was all “their dad” (thanks Super Mom Jackie :roll eyes: ), they wouldn’t act like that around their mom.

  129. Rabble Rouser says:

    Just finished watching the show (I am on the west coast and watched it on dvr an hour after later).

    IMO- The reunion was kind of lame. I don’t think that stupid gorilla peppering the air with profanities and fling Andy Cohen around like a rag doll is entertainment. Someone give her a banana and tell her to sit the f down.

    Caroline was still the team leader and was relentless. I thought I was having a flash back with that dated hair and makeup, not to mention that Alexis Carrington Colby knock off of a dress.

    Jac was just like the runner up in a very bad pageant- there ain’t enough sequins in the world to shimmer off her stupidity and lack of worthy contribution.

    And Dirty D just sat their like the cat who are the canary, knowing that her mere presence works them into a bunch of Parana’s in a frenzy. She didn’t have to bait, goat them or say anything ‘mean’- she just had to sit there. The more passive she acted- the more angry they became.

    If anything, she is the true puppeteer of them all.

  130. Had Enough! says:

    1. I do not like Danielle but the only thing she does that bothers me is her disregard for her children. She is delusional if she thinks her oversharing, public display of her overactive sexuality, and dumping her problems on them doesn’t hurt them. Jillian in particular seems like she is hurting. I don’t know how any of the Manzos can know what happens in school. Only Ashley overlapped with Christine, and Ashley has been out of school for two years.

    Gia is also old enough to hear blow-back. Do you think for one minute that her friends’ parents don’t comment on the Giudices and this program? And if they do, the kids hear it and I am sure they repeat it to Gia and tease her about it.

    2. I can’t have one ounce of respect for Caroline Manzo as long as she continues to back that animal, Teresa Giudice. She has now seen the shows. She has seen what happened at the country club. She has seen the disgusting spending. She has seen the grifting. She’s been mistreated and disrespected by Teresa. Publicly. I know you defend your friends, family, employees in public, but enough is enough. There is no way any decent person can find Teresa Giudice’s conduct to be acceptable.

    When Teresa came off that sofa and threatened Danielle, Caroline should have said ENOUGH.

    Condoning that behavior means that that you are not worthy of one ounce of respect.

    I don’t believe for one second that Teresa doesn’t behave this way unless Danielle is around. But even if that is true, so what? It is 100% unacceptable. What did Caroline say about Trashley? “You don’t put your hands on another person.”

    3. About that foreclosure. It may be true that no foreclosure proceedings were filed before the bankruptcy. I read the bankruptcy petition and it is true that the petition does not mention a foreclosure on the principal residence. They may have been negotiating for a loan mod. And it is taking the banks forever to get all the foreclosure proceedings underway, so it may have been that the bank hadn’t gotten to them yet. And once the bankruptcy petition was filed, all actions to collect debts would by law be stopped. So even if a foreclosure petition had been filed, it would be stopped. But guess what? If the trustee succeeds in persuading the bankruptcy court to dismiss the petition, all proceedings can go forward and it is possible, if not probable, that the house will be foreclosed on at that time.

    Further, the homestead exemption in New Jersey is actually the federal exemption (i.e., New Jersey has not exercised its right to increase the exemption) which is $125,000. Of equity. Not value of the home. They also have to keep the mortgage current during the time the bankruptcy is pending and demonstrate that they will be able to keep the mortgage current. They also have to reach an agreement with the lender(s) to make up delinquencies. We know that they claim that family members are pumping $120k into the system (just how did their parents make that kind of scratch?) but how long can that go on, even assuming it is true.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      ok this post cannot get left behind, this is going into my blog (with proper credit of course!)

      Here Here Had Enough!!!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      You know I have been thinking about their house and if the bank can foreclose on it. I was under the impression that the Guidices built the house own their own- despite the fact that they still owe pretty much everyone who worked on it it- right down to the lumber mill.

      I wondered then if the bank mortgage is just on the land? From watching Million Dollar Listing I know that in CA- land sales need to be privately fiances since I guess they are high risk. If the same is true in NJ- then what is the mortgage on?

      Did they build the house on credit then get some sort of reverse mortgage on it- and instead of using the money to pay the creditors they stole/hid that too?

  131. Rawhideaz says:

    Holy Smokes! Just catching up. Interesting stuff.

    I still hate Jill Zarin.

  132. kk says:

    You can vote for B*tchiest reality star on Huffington post entertainment section. Jill Zarin is on there and you can vote for her. Right now, Danielle is winning. But i voted for Jill. No, Kelli, Teresa & Ashley are not on there. I would post that there that they left a few people off, but they won’t let me.

    I guess Kelli is more crazy than b*tchy. Anyway, still vote for Jill Zarin

    I gotta stop here. Some on said Dunda looked well styled. Styled for what. She is 50 & looks EXACTLY like the (sadly) gross whores that hang on the street trying to do quick BJs as folks wait (sometimes for 1/2 hour) to get in the Lincoln tunnel in NYC.
    Wall St. Man loves my LynnFam but thinks we r really subjecting our selves to pure “garbage”. I told him to just pretent we r watching a horror move & he grinned & said u ladies r gonna b scared for sure hope u have a heart beat to snuggle w/ after the fright fest

  134. Wall St Lady says:

    Ok LynnFam. I took some great liberties in representing you to Teresa’s Bankruptcy Trustee. I hope no one gets mad at me for over stepping your boundaries. If I did I know u will let me know. If I did could u please let me know another day as today I am very happy and feel I gave John a punch as well as a hug. I used my Wall St. Technique I use on men that works every time : I hinted that he is scared of Teresa !

    Drumb Roll

    Dear John,
    By now you know me as we spoke on the telephone and I have copied and pasted you on many posts from the Lynnchicargo blog. If you google NJ house wife or particularly simply Teresa Housewife NJ or simply Teresa NJ one of your 1st choices to read about Trash a as we ,to mitigate our disgust ,call Teresa you will she LynnChicargo as a prominent choice. Why ? Because Lynn has one of if not the largest followings commenting on the grifting Guidices’.
    Last nights performance of the physically abusive Teresa should certainly frighten you physically. Also you could see Teresa is delirious. Certainly you should fear for yourself and your family if you do not grant their petition. Teresa can’t possibly meet the $15 000 monthly mortgage nut with out grifting more people. She has proven with more examples than I can repeat (2 parties,helicopters, sapphire, ring, $60 000 curtains etc. ) To thumb her nose at the court system since she thinks she was GIVEN a “fresh start”. This so called “fresh start” is an insult to the grifted people of NJ but also the rest of the country.
    I want to emphasize the Lynn Family is probably 1000 clever,hard ,working , intelligent, interesting ,honest ,strong willed ,& professional women & men (just to name a few qualities) Teresa is NOT. We are US citizens from ALL OVER our great country.
    We know you have a particularly difficult job. We want you to know we stand behind you & many of us are not afraid of the Guidice grifters or the Manzo enablers (& perhaps worse descriptive adjectives). We can & will be helpful if you need us. You have 100s of extra eyes & ears. We challenge you not to be afraid. We stand behind you to do the right thing and not to give a “Fresh start”. We want you toshow this country that one cannot grift the US tax payers.
    The kindest thing to do is let this family live with in their means and work out plans to repay the folks who want to live with in their means by not going in to debt because they were stolen from.
    It is obvious that the Mc mansion is Teresa’s identity. That is why precisely it is so dangerous as she will do ANY THING (like Scarlet O’Hara ,”beg borrow ,murder & cheat,steal to keep it). 2xs we have seen on National TV, Teresa physically attack other women to protect even the mention of. Her
    ” $5mil” mansion.
    THIS BEHAVIOR is DANGEROUS to society. She is likely to attack someone who asks a question at a book signing.
    Speaking of the book revenue that is a “slam dunk” for us
    (I mean us because we take this personally). Teresa worked on the book before her declaration of bankruptcy. That $60 000 belongs to the court to distribute to those grifted !Then there were the cash with no recites for book sales one of the Lynn Family observed.
    You know more on the behind the scenes examples of more attempts to defraud the US Government and we know you will succeed.
    I really could go on and on but we know you are very busy as this isn’t even your only case.
    To put it lightly we are upset and willing to support you.
    I am personally in NYC and will help in any way. I am a Wall St. Lady & I run my own firm. Since my name is on my email ,please feel free to google me & you will find MANY pages , I was listed by the NY Post as one of the most powerful women in NY. We mean business and will be very disappointed if you are not able to stop this “Fresh Start”. Since I have been involved with other bankruptcy cases I know there can be many rounds so we support you in all rounds.

    In closing we thank you in advance for your kind attention ,

    I will be calling your office to confirm that you received and read our voice from the Lynn Family. (I will call every day until I get you if you are unavailable tomorrow
    Last I will continue to send you sample postings I think might be helpful.

    We support you difficult efforts with the cunning Guidices.

    Gods speed and Blessings to You,

    The Lynn Family of united bloggers,

  135. sss says:

    I have been thinking about Big Momma crying about Albie’s law school applications not going so well. Here’s the deal: Until the reunion I never heard Momma Caroline state that (over an unspecified period of years) the family had tried to help Albie with his disabilities, which, for the first time last night she said were ADD and dyslexia or a genenral reading comprehension problem. Anytime before the reunion if Albie’s disabilities were mentioned they were not specified and no mention was made of trying to get him remediation for his probems. So I am thinking that Albie did not disclose his disabilities to Seton Hall Hall law until after it threw him out, at which point it was a little too late for him to ask them for a reasonable accomodation of his disabilities.. My guess is Seton Hall at that point saw this to be the lame excuse of a poor student after the fact. For Albie to say they did not care about his issues once his disclosed them is not fair to the law school. The question is when he disclosed and what if anything he asked for as an accommodation of his disabilitiers, i.e., more time for exams, the right to take his exams on a PC rather than handwriting his exams, for examples, before he got into academic trouble (optimally when he applied). If Albie did not put Seton Hall on notice of his disabilities prior to his expulsion, and my guess is he did not’, he has no cause to complain. Maybe Albie and his Mom were ashamed of his learning problems and so never alerted the law school before Albie got into academic trouble that he had special needs . The bottom line with a disability is if you don’t set forth what you need, you can’t complain after the fact that you did not get it. If Albie wants his current applications to have a chance, he should alert the schools about his problems up front in the applications. And BTW Seton Hall LS is not in the upper ranks; Albie should not set his sights too high and should be applying to a law school with a rank lower than Seton Hall’s, which means he probably shouldl look at schools outside of the NYC metropolitan area. He is an OK kid but he ain’t going to NYU, Coumbia or Rutgers for that matter.

  136. Wall St Lady says:

    Where is everybody ? I left to read 10 of my 30 business google alerts to find only one post

    Hi SSS. Another stupid thing Carolyn said is “He has these disabilities since he was 14” As I sit here to day while rocking my foot ,using spell check to check when (adjectives r a witch) & see my entire post disappear cuz of dyslexia (everything is backwards so if disciplined I go through a step to reverse everything ,reading takes me 3xs as long)that is ap only part of the ADD & learning Differences as we call them. So I identify w/ poor Alby If he is disciplined young man he will exhibit great patience & a never give up attitude & will triumph in many situations because overcoming failure is a part of his experience.
    Woodro Wilson ,John F Kennedy & Einstein all had learning difficulties (probably dyslexia)

    That being said u DON’T catch these problems ; u are born with them ! 30% of all kids are categorized as having a learning disability. It is unlikely in my opinion in this day and time that Alby’s problems would go undetected by 2nd grade. Further I have been puzzled by the school not making accommodations as I thought it was a legal disability.
    When I took an 8 hour test in ’76 to get my stock brokers license I studied 7 hours a day for six months & sadly there were no accommodations. I passed first time and 10 men in my class of 40 failed.
    16 years when I got my Principals license (a 3 hour exam ; I pulled the learning disabled card & got an extra hour. I still spent (much to Wall St Mans loneliness) 8 hours Sat & Sunday. I hadn’t had to focus like that since ’76 & it strengthened ny mind & grew my discipline.; when it was over I was happy for the growth I experienced. Since then I use my card for extra time for all my ongoing education tests. Recently a dummy at the testing center couldn’t confirm my extra time benefit (it was on his screen all the time). They also pat you down b4 u go in to make sure u have no cheating material. I was furious they wouldn’t find a gal to pat me down ; they had never had such a request. I decided to take the test anyway. I was up set about the 2 problems I admit which compounded my situation but I failed the test. I took it again a month later w/ a female pat down (I called the head of tests at the SEC ) and my extra hour & passed.
    Net Net I don’t believe Alby. He is just hoping due to his fame another school will INVITE him.

    Lynn has a guest blogger for a recap of last night’s NJ…..whatever the heck that was. “Goat rodeo” seems far too tame to describe it. Even professional wrestlers would be shaking their heads. And offer Teresa a contract.

    Lynn has a new blog. She posted link above.

    Sorry sorry sorry !
    WSM ment the women he personally experienced in his NYC neighborhood as a child.
    Of course he doesn’t mean all Italian women. He is 1st generation American Italian from Corsisa .
    His mother and all the other ladies in his family don’t behave like what he experienced.
    We all know there are tacky Italians as there are Irish, English etc.

    Again please forgive us as we ment no offense.
