I Hate Jill Zarin RHONJ Reunion Part 1 August 31, 2010
Sorry for the delay, it is a little bit long but I hope you all enjoy the blog.
Well amazingly enough three out of the four ladies made fools of themselves on the reunion already and we’re only half way through the process.
Right out of the gate when Andy asked the ladies about the reputation of the State of New Jersey and they proceeded to solidify the negative stereotype of New Jersey women. Please understand that I know very well that this is NOT a good representation of the fine people of New Jersey, Bravo has a gift of choosing the worst of the worst to represent on their Housewives series.
Teresa has to open the show by somehow turning her distaste for the show New Jersey Shore and the fact that the angel Teresa judges Danielle’s sexual antics with her nasty remarks. Teresa of all people, this woman who talks about her “juicy” husband, her “chuckie” and how horny she is all the time. Teresa is trash!
Danielle tried to speak several times but was interrupted almost every single time. Even as they tried to defend the reputation of New Jersey, they showed their true colors. Teresa is proud of the way she butchers the English language, and she’s not changing it for anyone! That shows us her lack of education, lack of wanting to improve herself and lack of wanting her children to be well rounded and educated young ladies. Congratulations Teresa, you win mother of the year!
When Danielle was asked why she didn’t acknowledge Jacqueline’s new baby boy, she tried to answer the question and was actually starting to make some sense but Teresa insisted on interrupting once again, even though the issue had absolutely nothing to do with Teresa, she chooses to go absolutely ape shit and scream in Danielle’s face. I think it’s clear now that she was screaming, “Don’t bring up my family!”
That wasn’t enough for the raging beast, Teresa screamed and threw pillows as Danielle rightly walked off the set. Pushing Andy Cohen onto his chair as he attempted to hold her back from running after Danielle, Teresa continued to scream and when Caroline tried to calm her, Teresa literally screeched like an animal complete with grunting.
As Caroline adds fuel to the fire telling Andy that Danielle’s friend was attempting to come to defend Danielle, Andy laughs and tells Teresa how strong she is. He thinks this is funny? I am absolutely disgusted with Andy Cohen for not taking this seriously. What happened to a zero tolerance for physical violence? Why was a contestant removed from the competition on Top Chef for physical interaction? Does Bravo have two sets of rules for its “Bravolebrities”?
Teresa still wasn’t done, as Andy goes back to try to coax Danielle out of hiding, Teresa beings to scream at Andy, “you better get her ass back here, Andy!” Again at the top of her psychotic lungs!
I’ve never seen a temper like this woman, certainly we’ve all gotten angry and we’ve all been infuriated with someone at some point in time but there is no way that normal people react the way Teresa did. This woman is truly a menace and needs medication. What happens at home when she gets angry with her children and the cameras aren’t rolling? Who acts like that?
So what set her off? Danielle saying that Teresa didn’t acknowledge her nephew. Rumors of what this means are flying all over the internet, some say it is this mistress of Joe Giudice, Tara’s baby that Danielle was referring to, I strongly doubt that. If that were the case and Danielle had that kind of information, we would have heard it last night. More likely it is the son of Teresa’s brother that Danielle was referring to because rumor has it Teresa and her brother’s wife do not speak. Whatever the case, Danielle obviously hit a nerve because we were treated to a special kind of bat shit crazy when Teresa realized what Danielle was talking about. We’ll get back to Teresa…
Jacqueline spent the entire time with her little snarky remarks, even when no one asked Jacqueline for her opinion, issues had nothing to do with her, she jumped in with her foolish remarks at every turn. She told Danielle to “shut your mouth” and I found that ironic because I wanted to say it to her so many times, not to be mean but to save her from embarrassing herself even more than she already had.
The bulk of the questions went to Danielle and Teresa so I’m sure Jacqueline’s turn will come, but really, what is Andy going to ask Jacqueline? She did nothing, she was a bystander all season, the only thing she can speak to is the horrible behavior of her daughter, let’s see how she explains that away. We’ll hear the standard answers that we’ve heard before, they’ve tried everything to straighten Ashley out, taken away her cell phone, grounded her, taken away driving privileges, blah blah blah, something went seriously wrong while Jacqueline was raising that kid.
Jacqueline has a habit of repeating the same thing over and over and it becomes the famous “white noise”. The true definition of white noise (not what Kelly speaks of) is what Jacqueline spews out constantly. Her repeating Danielle’s crimes from 25 years ago constantly only makes her look small and silly, and her repeating the same thing to Ashley over and over becomes the same thing, white noise that means nothing anymore. Even Ashley talks about how her mother keeps saying the same thing, it becomes ridiculous after a while, heard, understood and acknowledged, move on!
Jacqueline also has to ensure that she is giving credit for having a full term successful pregnancy to Dina for a bracelet that she bought her from an Energist rather than giving credit to Danielle for introducing her to her fertility doctor. That makes perfect sense! Does Jacqueline think that it makes her sound more sensible and sane by giving credit to a piece of jewelry rather than to a doctor?
The “beaten to death” subject of what Danielle did to Dina has to be brought up again and once again all three ladies snarky remarks in the end make Danielle sound more sane and truthful than the rest of them. Jacqueline and Caroline both tell Danielle to shut her mouth and not talk about Dina? I thought Andy just asked Danielle about the issue with Dina? Danielle wouldn’t have been able to get a gag order if Dina had been telling the truth and had proof of it, plain and simple. The fact that Jacqueline brought up the gag order was actually pretty funny and the smirk on Danielle’s face said it all! The gag order was the one piece of the puzzle missing for those of us who learned all about this situation on the internet and Jacqueline did Danielle a favor by telling us that.
Andy asked Teresa about her finances and her pre-arranged responses were as fake as her hair and her boobs. She continues to claim that her house is not in foreclosure but any attorney will tell you that it is only a matter of time, Teresa skirted around the question of whether or not she’ll be allowed to keep her home in the future. Her response that they are self-made and they did it once and they’ll do it again tells us she fully expects to lose that house.
It’s all well and good that they’re self-made, I think the majority of us are and earn our own money, with a few exceptions. That doesn’t explain the $10,000 monthly income that the Giudice’s get from family members, this was confirmed on their court documents. Self-made?
Here’s the best part kids, Teresa pretends not to know about the auction, she says she’s never seen the photographs of all of her belongings on the internet (that the whole world has seen). Even Jacqueline admits to seeing them. http://realcityhousewife.wordpress.com/
Why didn’t Andy press Teresa about the spending and the $60,000 book advance that she spent, the court appearances, the spending on the show, her losing her children’s beds in an auction, Joe’s going from an “Entrepreneur” who owns a construction company to a pizza maker?
Andy was sure to press Danielle about the sex tape and the affect it has on her children. Danielle tries to explain the best way she can, she didn’t ignore or try to change the subject. She presses on with her answer while every single one of the ladies interrupt and while speaking over her Caroline begins to yell “answer my question” several times. If Caroline had shut up herself long enough, she would have heard Danielle answer the question. Jacqueline chimes in with her own questions (apparently she has questions on a card just like Andy) about Danielle’s daughters being in the nurses office crying every day.
While Danielle didn’t deny that, I cannot see this happening every day, I don’t know a teenage girl who hasn’t cried in middle school and/or high school, whether it is because she is being harassed by other girls, hurt by a boy or just having a teenage meltdown. I also don’t see how on earth Jacqueline could possibly know anything about what happens at Danielle’s daughter’s school.
Andy pressed Danielle again when the subject of the Charity Event at the Brownstone came up. Andy announces that the father of the ill child claimed that Danielle never gave any donation to this charity. Danielle denies this but she did talk about this subject in her blog back when the episode aired and she did admit that she couldn’t afford to give much. I truly believe that Danielle regrets that entire situation, I could be wrong but I would bet if she had it to do over again, she wouldn’t have brought that motley crew with her. That doesn’t excuse what happened but I do believe what Danielle said that Bravo does create characters and does edit to ensure the highest level of drama. I also don’t think that the charity suffered one bit, if nothing it brought attention to that child and most likely got more donations than they would have if it had not been featured due to Danielle’s appearance.
Caroline uses this once again to interrupt Danielle as she tries to answer a question by blurting out “lie” with every word that Danielle tried to say. Telling Danielle not to turn her head and points her stubby little finger barking at Danielle once again. Not one of these women act like adult ladies! I expected more from Caroline.
Caroline may call it a cop-out, she may say that only 1% of the show is editing, but I think that we all know that isn’t true. These women are in full makeup and hair, arrive “unexpectedly” at venues where other housewives just happen to be, and are never filmed just relaxing and watching television (as we know by their tweets they do a lot of) so please don’t try to tell us that 99% of the show is all real, unplanned and unscripted.
After Teresa is grilled about her finances, and we learn that the yellow ring that was given to her for her anniversary was a yellow sapphire, Andy let her off the hook for her spending immediately before and after the bankruptcy filing, the subject of her husband Joe’s Driving While Intoxicated charges.
Once again Andy lets Teresa off the hook because the details were ignored. We all know that they all went out to dinner, we know that Tamra Barney from Orange County joined them, we know that Teresa rode home with Jacqueline and her husband Chris (they say because Teresa’s car was at Jacqueline’s house) and so we know that Joe drove home alone.
The questions that continue to go unanswered were why did they leave the restaurant separately, what time did Jacqueline and Teresa leave the restaurant and how long after did Joe leave? Did Joe stay later than the other dinner guests? Joe says he yawned, Caroline and Teresa say they don’t think he yawned, who the hell cares? Danielle is asked by Andy for her opinion, she politely says that she is glad that no one got hurt but repeats what we’re all thinking, “I find it hard to believe that right after you get into a car accident, and you go and get wasted”. Haven’ t we all said that? Caroline chimes in that Joe was “shaken” up but Teresa says “shooken” up OMG could if this women had a brain she’d be dangerous! In any case, we all know that nobody in their right mind would do what Joe did particularly when you know that the police are in route. It just isn’t plausible! The courts knew that he lied, we all know that he’s lying but again, Andy lets Teresa off the hook!
Teresa adds to her argument that they received a ticket in the mail a week later for Joe’s DWI, who cares when he got it? The fact remains that he was charged, convicted and sentenced for Driving While under the Influence of Alcohol.
Andy really spent a good 75% of this episode questioning Danielle, about Danny Featherbangs, who doesn’t offend me as much as some others, I think he was merely there for Danielle to talk to because she literally didn’t have anyone else to talk to. We couldn’t have read Danielle’s mind and she could only talk to her children so much before it really became inappropriate for her to talk to them. I really think that Danny was brought in for that purpose only. Again, as Andy was talking to Danielle, Jacqueline jumps in to say that Danny is no longer married and that she “heard” that Danielle had an affair with Danny. Again, who the hell cares? I really didn’t see any sexual chemistry between these two people during filming. They talked as if they were two girlfriends talking and making sure the viewers know what Danielle was thinking, feeling and planning. Another reason I really feel that this show is “produced” a lot more than they will admit.
The discussion of Danielle’s sex tape again brings out the animal in Teresa, Danielle really does try to answer questions, unlike her appearances on Watch What Happens Live, she didn’t deflect any questions, yet Teresa continues to have to jump in with her fowl filthy mouth calling Danielle names like “skanky ho” which adds nothing to the show, and if Teresa thinks it makes her more endearing to viewers, she’s dead wrong!
Same conversation and Caroline has to jump in once again interrupting Danielle as she tries to answer all of the questions, including Caroline’s question all while Caroline talks over everyone and doesn’t listen to the answer. Danielle admits that her daughters do hear things from their friends at school, good and bad including Caroline’s hateful comments about the girls having no light in their eyes. WTF? I completely disagree with Caroline because while we saw little of them this season, we did see them last season jogging with their mother, a pillow fight and sweet heart to heart conversations. Danielle may tell them too much but at the ages of 16 and 12, I don’t see any damage there. Maybe it is from the stability of their father but whatever the reason, I think they’re two of the best behaved and well mannered children on any Housewives series. I will tell you one thing, Jacqueline is NOT one to talk about being a parent with a daughter like she’s got!
Danielle is certainly no saint, but this show is tough when there is really no one to route for, I would have hoped that Caroline would have been the sane one with some sense during this reunion. I just don’t see how Danielle harmed these woman at all! You could point to the fiasco at the Brownstone but Danielle didn’t hurt any of these ladies, they weren’t even there, short of that, what did she do to them?
The previews look like more of the same, Danielle harassed by three other women and to add insult to injury, they bring Kim G onto the show? That is just sickening! It apparently isn’t enough for Bravo and Andy Cohen that three women are ganging up on one, not allowing her to speak and slamming her at every opportunity, they have to bring this moronic Kim woman to add to the mess!
Granted Caroline’s storyline this season was covered by discussing her son Albie’s situation with Law School and Jacqueline has nothing really, only Ashley’s horrific behavior but we don’t see previews of that so who knows if they even discuss it. So Caroline and Jacqueline are dull and have nothing to discuss except Danielle. Teresa should have plenty to answer for with her bankruptcy, spending, children’s behavior and her husband’s DWI, but she’s already been let off the hook for all of that!
What is left? More Danielle bashing to look forward to next week. It really is getting old! Particularly when they’re throwing things in her face that really are none of their business, are decades old and don’t affect their lives whatsoever.
And so 75 minutes are over and another 75 to go, personally I was disappointed at times, infuriated at times, embarrassed for these ladies at times. They certainly did release the most interesting bits on video previews so the rest really didn’t entertain but rather just ended up pissing me off that I wasted an entire season on this show. I’m mad at myself for even watching at all, to be honest. It really is a train wreck!
My personal opinion is that something needs to be done about Teresa Giudice and her temper, she needs anger management classes and should not be allowed to be alone with her children until she completes a course or has proven she can control herself. She should have been reprimanded by Bravo, including being fired for man-handling a network executive. Would an ABC executive allow that from one of the Desperate Housewives? Hmmm?
Some of the Bravo people had fun on Twitter during the broadcast, Andy Cohen, for the first time that I’ve ever seen actually tweeted during the show, here’s what Andy had to say…
The suit is Hugo Boss, the shoes, shirt and tie are Ralph Lauren. Tx for askin
Responses: My tie was royal blue but reads purple. Yes you can call me Raggedy Andy. The ending of (supersized) Part 2 is a shocker.
Btw – “Thintervention with Jackie Warner” is Awesome! So happy @Jackiewarner10 is back on Bravo
Half of you think I’m too tough on Danielle and half think I am too tough on Teresa. I try to be fair to all..
Never seen a bigger space on a couch than the one between Caroline and Danielle..
We go from finances to a porn tape. Oy! I give it up to all the women-they take the tough questions and do their best to answer them!
I can’t say I was looking forward to grilling Teresa about her finances…
I LOOOOVE a convo about leopard baby clothing.
My main goal became keeping Teresa on the couch.
I didn’t enjoy jumping back into the baby convo after that mishigas!
Little behind the scenes look at me doing my day job…
I can’t believe how strong @Teresa_Giudice is. She was very ANGRY which was fueling her strength. This was all in t …
This all happened in the first half hour of taping.
The “women/woman” convo cracks me up
Teresa and Jacqueline started out the day with guns blazing. I was surprised by their immediate intensity
Danielle’s original outfit (purple) arrived midway through taping, so she went with the tank and sequined skirt combo
Caroline Manzo tweeted during the show as well…
Have to finish my blog. look for it tomorrow on Bravotv.com.
that was nasty Caroline…… give me pass
@BravoAndy lol, at least I sat there!!!!
I felt like Judge Judy…….
aaand she says to the clown…..
liar liar pants on fire….
we were together.. Swear, I would have never let him drive drunk…
Albie, you have WiFi on the plane???
Jacs telling the truth here too
okay, I need to explain this…….. it will be in my blog..don’t have a stroke!
I’m proud of my Albie…….
Those gorgeous faces…. they make me smile :o)
Look at my baby, he’s so handsome!!!
I’m sure there are millions of Caroline’s all over the place. I just happen to be on TV….. but thanks for voting 4 me! xoxo
Jac is telling the truth
I meant what I said to Teresa………
Poor Andy, he was really trying to calm everyone down.
oh God…….. I can’t……. I was in complete shock…… you have NO IDEA
I hate this clip…. hate hate hate
Lauren did Jac’s makeup, mine too!!!! she did a good job, right???
At this point I knew we were in trouble.
just watched the reunion….. oh brother….. time to write my blog. will you be tweeting/Facebooking with me?
Teresa, as usual said nothing of interest:
Alright, blog written. Off to bed. Night Tweet♥s! xx
Not a lot, but I’m going. 😉 xx RT @justwitt do you ever sleep!? GO TO BED GIRL!!!!!
I’m writing my blog now. What questions do guys need answered?
Here’s a video Andy taped us all before we started filming: http://tinyurl.com/29nhjpn
I watched the #RHONJ reunion live here in Jersey and it’s killing me not to Tweet, but I don’t want to ruin it for the West Coast… xx
Danielle did not tweet during the show but got up in the morning and responded to some tweets:
they were right there and heard that comment ~ it was difficult for them to hear that said about them twice now ~ they are amazing kids and all mine ~ Caroline should pay no mind to my business I do not respect or admire her in the least
@SPrice80 I never did any such thing They all know it as well Dina lies they swear to it ~ doesn’t make it the truth.
@Jroybuchholz thank you Sue ~ it was worse than it showed even
Danielle tweeted a lot of “thank you sweeties” from people who apparently had good things to say about her during the show.
Jacqueline had a few things to say as well..
Of COURSE she aknowledged her nephews birth. She ADORES him.
Our expressions on all of our faces are hilarious
OMG I am SO surprised you all are loving my fiesty side. Me…. not so much.
no I haven’t, I’ve always been this way, you just have never seen me mad at anybody. I get mad too 1ce in a great while.
I know someone who works there and also have friends kids that go there
Wait until you see part two…..just …wait…
she thought T didn’t acknowledge T’s nephews birth but T was @ hospital the day AFTER cause we were in Ca. the day OF doing press
@MsFran53 No, there is no Tara or love child.Lol!Tamra from OC HW was out 2dinner w/us the night of accident,maybe that’s the blond pple saw
@jayneb She didn’t want her bringing up her family who had nothing to do w/ the show & 2try 2cause trouble 4 her family w/more lies
Why is Jacqueline answering these questions? Why doesn’t Teresa come out and tell the truth, tell us why she went completely ape shit crazy when her “nephew” was mentioned? There may or may not be a Tara, there may or may not be a child that this Tara person has, and I believe that when Danielle talked about Teresa’s nephew, she wasn’t referring to Tara or her child, but there had to be some truth to Danielle’s words or Teresa wouldn’t have flipped out the way that she did.
Throughout the show I saw small indications of Danielle still trying to get these women on her side, she chimed in with her approval of Teresa’s own language, was nodding her head in support of Caroline as she wept over her son even asking for a tissue for Caroline. I really think that Danielle was hoping that the four women could at least ban together on a few issues. I think she wanted just a little bit of solidarity in support of New Jersey and the children, it seems to me that while she talks a big game, she still wants approval and/or support from these women. She quickly learned that no matter what she said, there would be none forthcoming.
I think that Caroline surprised me the most, I fully expected to see the Caroline that we saw at the “last supper” when she at least allowed Danielle to speak. Caroline was out of control and irrational, she’s completely lost any respect she had, including self-respect. She was rude and crude, maybe she’s been hanging out with Teresa too long.
Bravo has posted two new preview video’s for next week. One talks about the Twitter conversation and I remember seeing that tweet from Danielle. A sick viewer tweeted that it was his birthday and his birthday wish was for Ashley to kill herself, videotape it so that he can watch. Sick right? Danielle tweeted back that she hopes all of his birthday wishes come true. Danielle took a lot of heat for that from people on Twitter and later deleted that tweet.
The other preview video shows Kim G and Danielle arguing about who did more for the other, just another person to gang up on Danielle. Danielle is told once again, this time by Kim, to “shut your mouth”. Caroline, once again, feels the need to butt into a conversation that has absolutely nothing to do with her.
How the hell does Kim G get away with telling one of the Housewives to “shut your mouth”? This woman isn’t a housewife, shouldn’t even be there and for Andy Cohen to allow this after saying he treats all of “his housewives” exactly the same is ridiculous! The whole idea of a reunion show is for the women to speak up about what has been going on, at this point everyone on the couches have told Danielle to “shut your mouth”? WTF?
Next week isn’t going to be any less infuriating to watch…
Finally there were a few comments on the blogs that warrant mention so I am reposting them here:
- 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.

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.
- 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.
Thanks for the great comments! I hope you’ll all consider doing a guest blog!
Until Next Time……
