I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Let’s Chat!

I Hate Jill Zarin  The Real Housewives of New Jersey – Let’s Chat!

There they are, the new Real Housewives of New Jersey, what do you think? 

Teresa, Jacqueline, Kathy, Melissa and Caroline.  The Manzo’s aren’t the focus any longer, how will Caroline handle that?  She’s been top dog for two years now what happens when the Gorga/Guidice families take over the show?

The good news is that Teresa can flip out all she wants, she’s got family there now who won’t take any of her nonsense.   This is going to be fun!

Last season Teresa thought she was the most popular, the most beautiful and the most admired housewife on the show.  We even hear Teresa this season saying that Jacqueline USED to be hot, when Teresa first met her, implying that Jacqueline is no longer hot.  Teresa certainly fancies herself as hot. 

But with Teresa’s brother and hot sister-in-law breathing down her neck, things in Jersey will be quite a bit different for Mrs. Giudice.  For one thing, try has she may she can’t seem to have a son, four daughters later and she’s had to give up.  Melissa has a beautiful baby boy that she Christens in the first episode.  That has to be killing Teresa!  Teresa’s brother Joe and his wife have a larger home than Teresa and I’ll bet it is paid for. 

Three Housewives series running on Bravo at the same time, hold onto your seats, it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

Enjoy the show and the chat!  Stop by tomorrow for the Real Housewives of New Jersey recap.

Until Next Time…

    Poor Milania (sp?), she seems to have gotten the worst of the genepool. Gia has her moments of cuteness, but she too looks a lot like Teresa. Gabriella is beautiful, and I think Audriana, like her, looks more like Joe, but it’s too early to tell.

    • 123READY -been watching Jersey Marathon and am going crazy says:

      P.S. what’s this I hear about a “love child?”

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Great find! Btw, i dont think she’s that pretty. From that pic, i dont see how she ws “scouted” to be a model

      • cabbie413 says:

        you and me both! From the way she talks about herself I thought she was really hot stuff back then.. but of course she and Jill overexaggerate themselves and their ‘accomplishments’

        She’s a Effing Bee. 🙂

    • myname2use4now says:

      OMG! I had no idea who that was until I re-read your post and saw the “dahling..” LOL! Awesome find!

    • Christine says:

      Google Playgirl, 1990, Men of Texas issue. LuAnn’s the model on the cover.
      I agree that the nursing school pic is bad but there are some very beautiful pics of her on other sites doing some kind of modeling.

  2. MichellefromNY says:

    Lets hope teresa gets the smackdown she deserves!

    • 123READY -been watching Jersey Marathon and am going crazy says:

      Cousin Kathy looks funny. I hope she doesn’t turn out to be a Teresa ass-kisser.

      • MichellefromNY says:

        She actually hates teresa as far as i can tell. Theres a video on bravotv.com where you see her call teresa out.

  3. VAgirl says:

    I’ve never been a regular watcher of the New Jersey housewives, but I can’t stand OC any longer and can barely watch New York (but I do just to see Jill get caught up in her own lies), so I’ll give this one a chance. I miss Bethenny Ever After already!

  4. 123READY -been watching Jersey Marathon and am going crazy says:

    You think Caroline should get a spray tan? I just noticed how much she stands out in that bunch. Ha.

  5. MickeyMouth says:

    Why is Teresa wearing last year’s RHONJ promo dress? Is she having financial trouble?

    • MichellefromNY says:

      That wud be just too wierd. I thought she was, like, rich and all! Channeeeeellllssss

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      snort, snort, I sure hope not! lol

    • Cusi77 says:

      (((Mickey))) Where were you sweetie? We miss you so much and your Art!

      • MickeyMouth says:

        Hi Cusi. I’m still around. I’ve just been so busy lately. I don’t get a lot of time to chat or photoshop. I try to check in every so often but these blogs move so fast anymore. I hope you are well 🙂

        • Lavalady says:

          Mickey – I saw your “pecking order” chop over at RCH’s blog. It was great.

  6. VAgirl says:

    I’m too busy looking at Caroline’s butterfly shoes (those are butterflies, aren’t they?) and Kathy’s ugly wedgies.

  7. Tappp says:

    How did Caroline lose all the weight?

  8. quincyil says:

    These ladies must all be very short. Jacqueline is not quite 5’4 and she looks like the tallest in the photo.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Its cuz she is in the “back” so they made her more stretched out. She’s not so tall.

  9. quincyil says:

    I hope everyone knows the show starts in at 8 Central and is 90 minutes long tonight.

    Lynn left the draft for the chat and I think her descroiption is interesting.

  10. AZ Girl says:

    Last nights preview shows Gia trying to pull Teresa away from her brother while they are fighting at the christening and has tears in her eyes. So sad.

    • Sara says:

      I noticed that too. Very sad. Teresa should have just left it alone.

    • Caitlin says:

      Teresa’s major activities as a mother seem to be dressing the kids up and promoting them — not parenting them.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Those kids are going to grow up majorly screwed up

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Teresa’s kids are going to be majorly screwed up when they grow up

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      That really broke my heart, those poor kids being the mists of all that rage.

      • babykakes says:

        Teresa running on the second floor screaming “where’s the baby, where’s the baby”? & where is the baby, just below the top of the stairs..do they not know about child gates to keep a
        child/baby from falling down the stairs & sustaining multiple injuries, head trauma, death? someone can ‘child protective services’! it probably wouldn’t go w/ the decor! how incredibly dangerous!

  11. MichellefromNY says:

    Hahaha bravo has a countdown clock to count down the minutes till nj premiere. I guess they think everyone cant wait to watch

  12. MichellefromNY says:

    I’m loving the countdown on bravo…I guess they think nj is the most popular

  13. Golden Girl says:

    I am ready for RHWONJ I rolled around in Dorito dust and heavily applied my silver eyeshadow I can’t wait 🙂

  14. Golden Girl says:

    Dang that didn’t take long for a fight.

    • Austin says:

      You ain’t kidding!

      And apparently, saying “you’re garbage” is the favored insult in these circles.

  15. Golden Girl says:

    Ok I feel sick its way to much drama already I might bail.

    • Austin says:

      Oh, I might bail with you. I said I wasn’t going to watch NJ because they are just sooooo trashy. But I’m not feeling well tonight so I’m channel surfing, and the trainwreck called RHoNJ caught my eye and now I can’t turn away.

      • Golden Girl says:

        Same here I am mad at myself now for turning it on. I’ll watch this one but no more after that lol.

  16. Debbie says:

    Oy gevalt!It starts with a bang!

  17. MichellefromNY says:

    Whats with the “1 week earlier”? who do they think they are, prime time drama?

  18. Caitlin says:

    Ouch! Caroline has rubber ducky lips – not a good look.

  19. Golden Girl says:

    Oh geeeeze Caroline give me a break with the crying about her baby boys.

    • NMhousewife says:

      I feel sorry for any future daughter-in-laws.

    • Nancy says:

      Are they getting their own show or not?

    • nathania says:

      it’s very icky.

      it was stupid last season but now it’s just starting to get plain old creepy.

      and the poor dishrag daughter, who is probaby forced to stay in the pantry except in these scenes…

  20. Amber...Real Wife says:

    I wonder if she’s getting bundles of money from some fans too?

  21. DiaBLa says:

    WoW!!! Now we got table banging ………………..any bets on who is going to flip the next table??

  22. Golden Girl says:

    Please They are in their 20’s

  23. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Goodness LizzieGrubbie again? She had a reality show awhile ago.

    • HD says:

      What show was that? I knew her voice sounded familiar to me.

    • Debbie says:

      Didin’t Lizzie run her car into a parking lot full of people at some club in the Hampton’s a few years ago?

      • NMhousewife says:

        I remember that..and didn’t she flee the scene?

        • Debbie says:

          yes she did.. and i think daddy is big name lawyer..helped her avoid a lot of penalties even though she ran over 1-2 people, Didn’t kill anyone.. I think she was drunk and got probation. Noe I need to check my facts. No malicious rumors. But she should be good roll model for Ashley.

          • Debbie says:

            from wiki:
            2001 Felonious Attack with the SUV

            On July 7, 2001, after being asked by security guards to remove her Mercedes from a fire lane,in a fit of rage Grubman drove her SUV into a crowd of people outside a nightclub in the Hamptons. She injured 16 people and was later charged in a 26-count indictment with felony crimes including second-degree assault, driving while intoxicated, and reckless endangerment.[9] Grubman faced up to eight years in prison, but she served thirty-seven days in jail and received five years’ probation after reaching a plea bargain.[6]

            • Christine says:

              You got it, Debbie. I remember that incident and the fact that she got off so easy. Lizzie was and is on big hot mess. Sounds like just the place at which Ashley should be interning, very good role model.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Lizzie Grubman plowed her car into a bar/restaurant in the Hamptons and I believe a few were killed. She should be in jail but from what I remember there was a plea bargain for manslaughter. disgusting.

      • nathania says:

        I just posted an article on it below…

        she was in reverse for 83 feet and made three steering corrections while doing so. apparently she was driving a high end vehicle that has a ‘black box’ so all of her maneuvers were recorded. oh the irony.

        she settled those civil cases for what I imagine was a whole lot of $$$.

  24. HD says:

    WTF is wrong with Ashley?! Newsflash people work!

  25. Austin says:

    Is anyone surprised that Ashley is not that into going to work every day?

    • boston02127 says:

      Not at all. I use to read her tweets and she was always out at clubs. I have no clue how she’d get in. We’re the same age and I think I look older than her and I’ve tried but I can never get served at a resturant never mind a club.

  26. MichellefromNY says:

    This scene with ashley is too weird…it feels super scripted

  27. Caitlin says:

    Oy! Jacqueline’s daughter is so spoiled that it is uncomfortable to watch……

    • NMhousewife says:

      I hope Jaquelyn stays committed in not paying for Ashley to live in the city, but probably not.

    • Austin says:

      As a mother, I would be mortified if I met my adult son’s boss and he/she told me that my son needed to do a better job of coming to work everyday, and that he needed to “try harder”. I would want to crawl under the floor tiles and then I would open up a huge can on him when he got home.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She acts like a young kid. Asking her mom for a place in the city in front of her boss and co-workers. Like a kid throwing a tantrum in a restaurant when they want to order soda and their parents want them to drink milk.

      • Golden Girl says:

        That was just painful to watch yikes I am so embarrassed for her.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Really..I can’t believe the balls on her.
        Jax’s problem is that she tries to have discussions with her- and falls into her own adolescence.

        If it were me, the conversation would have went something like the cell phone commercial that show a father and his young son fishing on a boat.

        Son “Dad, I think it’s time I got a cell phone”
        Dad “I think it’s time you got a job”.

  28. boston02127 says:

    I can’t believe Ashlee is 19. She doesn’t speak well at all.

  29. MichellefromNY says:

    O…M…GG….the picture of teresa as a little girl looks EXACTLY like Gia. No wonder she was so set on her being a model. She was living vicariously through her daughter to “prove” teresa’s own hotness

  30. kotagirl29 says:

    Evening Friends!

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Hey kota!!! how r you doing?? hows your brother in law?

      • kotagirl29 says:

        He’s doing good. He didn’t get to go home today because they are waiting for one of his cardiac specialists who didn’t make it to see him today. He is coming home tomorrow though. Other than being fugly about not going home, everything else is going good.

    • jables says:

      Egg on my face. Is Leo your brother in law? My bad. That’s what I get for skimming. Still I hope you caught my post on the last blog. Hope all is well!

      • kotagirl29 says:

        Yes. Leo is my brother-in-law. Although he is a lot closer to father than anything else. He and my sister have been together for 28 years, so he has been a fixture in the family most of my life. I was 7 when they met, I wouldn’t know what to do without him. He is, and always has been, the most stable male figure in my life. I once told my sister they could never get a divorce because it would rock my world, not that divorce has ever been in the cards. Okay, I’m rambling. I must be tired.

        • jables says:

          Sorry for the mix up! I just wanted you to know that the hospital where he is going is the best of the best! I had an incredible experience there as a patient and I am in the business so I know on a professional level how good they are. The med center can be intimidating but Houston is a friendly kind of town…I hope they enjoy the experience and if you need any advice I would be happy to oblige!

  31. boston02127 says:

    Well….so far we’ve got the ….Look how well all our kids are doing. Next.

  32. Amber...Real Wife says:

    It seems Tman really threw her family under the bus to the Manzos, trying to get sympathy and support. I wonder how long it will last?

  33. WindyCityWondering says:

    Teresa isn’t the only one in her family that missed the forehead gene….

  34. DiaBLa says:

    OMG…..I wanna live in the City too and have my mom foot the bill. Then I can work for free and party my ass off too…..

    • Austin says:

      OMG, the restaurant scene with Ashley is TOO much. She has to get up early, she has to go into the city, wah, wah, wah.

      Yeah, honey, welcome to the real world!

      • DiaBLa says:

        What??? You want me to work 2 JOBs??? and actually pay my own bills??
        Nooooooooooooooooooooooo……..it is so unfair!!!!

        • nathania says:

          my feeling about this is that Ashley knows they have the money. She lived in a neighborhood and peer group where other people’s kids were provided for this way. And she knows on some level that the ‘real’ kids of Chris Laurita probably will be treated this way. They probably are and will continue to be spoiled rotten, and smothered with $$ and gifts. My ex’s family was like this. Their mom was a dirt poor 15 year old from SC who got knocked up. She married an engineer/pilot, and watched as his daughter was given credit cards/ free education, etc. I remember my ex telling me she drove down to see them in AL once, and right after getting a seat her mother said, ‘come in here and say hello to x (the spoiled daughter). My ex finally was fed up and said “you know what, I just drove 500 miles, if x wants to see me she can walk her @ss in here and say hello to ME.” Ashley is a stepkid on the poor side of the family, and I really got a feel for it from my ex that it SUCKS to have to watch the inequity and have parents act like it does not exist.

          • NJ Bev says:

            very interesting point of view, Nathania. I see
            what you are saying and understand it completely.
            My problem with this situation is that Ashley never got a chance to adjust to the “real world”
            She didn’t go to college, which IMO is the stepping
            stone for kids her age to adjust to the real world-
            she has absolutely no experience in anything,
            working, living on her own, how to write a check, balance an account, she can’t even manage her time, let alone an adult conversation. She only got the internship
            b/c of the family. There is no way in hell
            she is mature enough to handle this job.
            There are Ivy league students who can’t
            get an internship in this economy, and
            it is handed to her.
            After graduating from college(put myself
            through& grad. on time) I started a job
            in Manhatten. Without a doubt, it was
            the hardest experience of my life. The
            commute took over 1/2 my salary
            and 3-4 hours a day. It is tough to
            do when prepared for it-
            Ashley is not prepared for anything-
            she is so emotionally immature.
            She should be going to community
            college and work a part time job at the
            mall. oh, and get some therapy, lots
            and lots of therapy.
            sorry for the rant…..

            • Anne says:

              What Ivy League college student is having a problem with getting an internship? If there is one, then I would like to hire them for the summer at an i-Bank. We have openings for paid internships and my division pays very well. Additionally, we pay all commuting on top of over 1,5000/week.

              We have unpaid internships as well. We still pay all commuting and if they are coming home late we will provide car service into upstate NY, CT or NJ, as well as NYC.

              New York is doing well. There are tons of jobs, especially for unpaid internships. The economy is not only turning around, but it is getting better and better.

            • floridagirl88 says:

              Sorry, Ashley is just a bratty person who thinks someone else should support her. She would do well to have a sit down with Bethenny and learn how the real world works.

  35. MichellefromNY says:

    I like melissa so far. She tried to get her husband to stop fighting with teresa. seems like she has class. so far.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      wait for it. they always seem okay at the beginning.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t think I like her.

      I liked Kathy the moment she tried to pull those kids out of that hellish pit those barbarians created.

  36. boston02127 says:

    Ugh…Ashley. “I have to wake up early to go to work” blah blah blah
    (she’s a giant) I’m 5’8″ and she looks so tall.

  37. HD says:

    I cannot believe Ashley! They don’t know anything but she is the one late to work everyday.

  38. HD says:

    Now you see how Jacqueline walked off like that? That is JUST how Ashley acts.

    • Golden Girl says:

      Yes Yes Yes!

    • nathania says:

      that was the most ridiculous thing.

      typical of a mother who has a daughter that young, she is competitive with Ashley. She sees Ashley as a peer rather than a daughter, in some sense. She was competing with her for competition. Chris makes Jacqueline feel like more of a mother to Ashley. It must be soooooooo hard for Ashley to adjust to, because this is probably a relatively new dynamic, because Jac and Ashley were probably ‘besties’ at one point. Then along comes Chris, Jac has a confidante and no longer needs Ashley and suddenly Ashley is relegated to the role of ‘kid’ again…and not only that, but ‘stepkid’.

  39. MichellefromNY says:

    the lauritas are uncomfortable to watch.

  40. myname2use4now says:

    LOL…Ashley, “The whole process is so annoying! I have to get up, get ready, get the train, blah, blah, blah.” No shit Sherlock…guess college isn’t looking so bad right about now, isn’t it?

    She really needs to quit the show and get her life together.

    • Sus says:

      OMG! What’s wrong with you people? Commuting on a train, Eww. To top it off, you have to get up EARLY. I’m so immature that I’m going to cry in front of my boss because my mommy won’t pay my rent.

      Hey Ashley, skip a couple of layers of makeup and you’ll be able to sleep longer. You’ll look 19 instead of 56 too.

      • nathania says:

        that whole scene was unreal.

        How did she get this job, anyway? Who knew Lizzie Grubman, and hooked up this potential nightmare with the proven nightmare?

        And then, THE MOST IRONIC COMMENT OF ALL TIME, Lizzie Grubman says to Ashley, ‘you are like me at your age…without the violence.’

        I literally almost choked on that statement, and then had to stop and wonder if she was saying Ashely was the non-violent one. Lest anyone forget:

        Accident expert says Grubman intentionally ran down people in 2001
        NEW YORK (AP) — An accident reconstruction specialist, hired by a woman who was struck when a wealthy publicist backed her Mercedes-Benz SUV into a crowd outside a nightclub, says the victims were run down intentionally.

        Myron Lofgren examined the scene about a month after the July 7, 2001, incident, and was present when police opened the sport utility vehicle’s black box, according to court papers filed Monday.

        Lofgren, hired by Suffolk County when authorities there were preparing a criminal case against Lizzie Grubman, said the publicist drove vehicle in reverse for 83 feet and, had she tried to brake, could have stopped within 29 feet, according to the court papers.

        The papers were filed by a lawyer for Sara Thorne, one of at least 16 people hurt when Grubman backed into a crowd outside the Conscience Point Inn, a trendy Hamptons club, before fleeing.

        The papers also quote Lofgren as saying Grubman made at least three steering corrections that directed the vehicle where she wanted it to go

  41. HD says:

    Do ya’ll think Teresa did her home because of them?

  42. DiaBLa says:

    Melissa’s kids are way cuter than Teresa’s………….

  43. Kats2 says:

    OMG is anyone watching the Jersey losers?

    I’m cracking up, no one to blame this year! Ashley still a spoiled mess, Albie no law school no surprise, Manzo still be the baby mama, and of course Teresa is still trash.

    Can’t wait to see how Caroline makes up excuses this year.

    I think Andy might be brilliant for bringing Teresa’s family on to show us the truth

    • nathania says:

      I am starting to notice something about Andy.

      He’s like the Punisher.

      He won’t SAY anything, or admit at all to being offended, like when Terroresa threw him in the chair. But now…her life is going to be a living hell on this show…

  44. boston02127 says:

    I think Bravo is going broke. There is no Joe Gorga. It’s Teresa in a wig. She’s playing 2 parts this season.

  45. MichellefromNY says:

    way to spin it teresa.

  46. Cusi77 says:

    Melissa: welcome to 1958

  47. Sara says:

    Gotta tell you. Not liking Melissa or Teresa’s brother at all…

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Me either.
      My husband thinks that her brother sounds like a jealous cry baby. ‘Daddy loves other Joey more”.

      I can’t decide which Joe I think is a bigger pig.

      • sue says:

        I think T’s bro is the bigger pig. Melissa and Joe Gorga just give off a fake vibe. I think this spat all started because that melissa got jealous of T and wanted to be on back when the show started. I think this “wanna be'” couple think they are going to become A-list celebs, cause you can tell that Melissa is full of herself and probably believes she will sing her way to stardom and all the world will fall at her feet. We here all got the same impression of Melissa and Joe, Melissa is a instigator and a pot stirrer, w/a little liar thrown in. And I’ll tell ya what, WE REALLY CANT STOMACH HER MANLY LOOKING SISTER LISA, THAT ONE AND HER HUSBAND ARE THE REAL TROUBLE MAKERS AND PROBABLY ALWAYS HAVE BEEN, YA KNOW YOU CAN JUST TELL THOSE LOW LIFE SORTS AND THEY ARE IT!!!

  48. Amber...Real Wife says:

    LMAO The brother is INSANE! LOL

    It is so delicious. How dare TMAN keep these characters away from us? LOL

    I’m laughing so hard, RealHusband asked what am I laughing at?! And the brother is gonna gossip like a woman too! I am a fan! 🙂

  49. MichellefromNY says:

    Guess acting “juicy” runs in teresa and joe gorga’s family….

  50. MichellefromNY says:

    I believe melissa’s version over teresa

  51. boston02127 says:

    I wonder why she didn’t name her first boy after the father? Gino then Joey?

  52. Kats2 says:

    So Teresa’s brother is a neanderthal about women being his slaves, but as long as he does his job and gives it to T and Joe some justice will be served.

  53. Butters'Mom says:

    Wow Melissa is prettier, has more money,a nicer house and cuter kids. No wonder Tman hates her.

    • HD says:

      Also and I could be pushing it but I think the fact that she has boys is a little sting too. JMO

    • nathania says:

      and a good sense of humor too. The clip where Joe Go is in drag and Melissa says, “you look like your sister” is hysterical.

  54. Golden Girl says:

    Yikes Kathy just walked in

  55. MichellefromNY says:

    I don’t know about you, but I’m loving this teresa bashing.

  56. Kats2 says:

    OMG this is so italian I’m growing facial hair (i’m half italian so I can diss my own)

  57. Caitlin says:

    There has got to be something odd indeed in New Jersey’s drinking water – these people are all off in some weird way – and it’s not just the “family thing” or the “Italian thing” – it’s a demented thing!

    • Sus says:

      I agree! My husband’s family is very “Italian”. They are really into “Family”. Not ever would any of them act like this. Teresa is awful all by herself and her brother is just as bad. Why not just say “Thank you” when Teresa came up to his table. Low Class !!!

      • Stella says:

        He was totally drunk at that point (everyone kept encouraging him to eat to absorb the liquor) and he was already angry talking about her so her coming over was just the push he needed to go over the edge. Not that I’m condoning it but I think that’s why he went overboard when he did.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Yes, then his idiot wife had to light the fuse with “Whudda ya sayin it noaw fa” comment.

  58. Golden Girl says:

    WTH is up with the bike scene lol

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I liked it. I’m liking Kathy. She’s very strange but not in an awful way.

      • Golden Girl says:

        I agree I don’t think she’s awful. I was so not expecting the biking to the store scene from one of the housewives.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          Her husband is kind of off beat. He seems like Jerry Lewis trying to do an impersonation of Dean Martin.

        • nathania says:

          yeah, she was funny in the store. I think she is a good egg.

          Holy cow. I just realized, there might actually be a semi-normal human being on Real Housewives of New Jersey. Shhhh…don’t tell Andy Cohen, he’ll dump her immediately.

          When I was watching that I was mad with jealousy at the thought of living somewhere where I could ride a bike from my house to the store. I tried riding my bike on my road exactly one time when I moved here and got ran off the road into a ditch (I was ran off the road a total of three times, but only once into a ditch). Plus there is no leash law here and the idiotic half-breed rednecks who run this town will not pass one, even though a little girl was recently mauled to death by a neighbor’s dog. No matter what happens, they REFUSE to come into the 21st century and pass a leash law.

    • Debbie says:

      She wants to leave a smaller carbon footprint …or she has a dui or her car was repo’d?

    • HD says:

      They showed that scene right after the husband said he was hot for his wife so I took it as them showing her doing her “workout” riding the bike, being healthy and that is how she keeps her shape. Maybe I was thinking too hard. Sorry.

    • snarkarella says:

      I liked the bike scene. She may be Tre’s 1st cousin but it shows she couldn’t be more different. Can you imagine Tre riding a bike to the market??

      • Lollipop165 says:

        It was obviously set up for the show. Even rural NJ women don’t ride bikes to the grocery store. Which isn’t to say that I don’t like Kathy. I just think because she’s the “poorest” of the houswives she needed an angle.

  59. housewifeaddict says:

    Okay – how can none of the Manzo’s make dessert from instructions on a BOX!!! This whole stay at home perfect mom thing has been busted wide open Caroline!

    • Austin says:

      Well, at least they don’t get their marinara sauce from a jar. . . ::rolls eyes::

      • Christine says:

        Yep, it’s really, really hard for us Southern folk to make good pasta fagioli. Most likely we’d deep fry it and cover it with gravy.

        • Vavoline Jackson Johnson says:

          fambly of fools iffen you ask me. They ain’t got no story line no mo..grown up kids movin out, bad food an cookin and actin ignorant about Southern food?? Them Manzos better bring somethin else to the table iffen they don’t want us to fast forward their parts on da show

    • kbinldo says:

      I wouldn’t know. I’m from the South & apparently too dumb to understand what they were talking about.

      • Christine says:

        And that little demonstration on how to make fun of a Cajun accent was so enlightening. This from people who can’t stay in law school and say things like “yous” and “fambly”.
        Thank you for the stereotype.

  60. Amber...Real Wife says:

    UGGHH! I was in a hot air balloon and here comes the PIN! The boring friggin Manzo’s.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      I was thinking the same thing!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Like i’m actually scowling…no snarling in disgust! Please bring back JoeyG and MoneyMel from Montville asap!

      BTW Kathy looks like a human SouthPark character with the eyes, face and hair! Love it!

  61. MichellefromNY says:

    Why do we have to watch caroline’s children do stupid things…boring.

  62. MichellefromNY says:

    In the opening pic of all the women, notice how teresa has a serious, frowny face, making her look a million years old, and melissa has a dazzling smile. Snow white versus the evil queen much?

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Yes! Tree looks like she is mad as hell and is planning revenge. Get over it. It’s a done deal. Your fambly just got bigger than Clownetta and Jacbesimple. Own it!

  63. Chris and Albie will star in their own Bravo web series. I guess this is the spin-off that was rumored a few months ago.

    Tweet from Bravo:

    Bravotv: Did we mention @albiemanzo and @chris_manzo will star in their own Bravotv.com web series coming SOON! #RHONJ

    • Golden Girl says:

      Gag me I wont watch that lol I cant even watch them for 3 min on housewives. Is it going to air this summer?

      • I’m assuming it is going to air some time during this season of RHONJ. I am surprised that Bravo didn’t announce a date yet. I won’t be watching either. The Manzo brothers seem nice but they bore me.

    • snarkarella says:


    • nathania says:


      because Bravo wants me to be really familiar with what is airing on other channels in their timeslot?

      because every time they come onscreen, I click the clicker to somewhere, anywhere else.

  64. AZ Girl says:

    Transformation of the Manzo boys: Season 1: Aubie is hot and Chris is young and goofy. Season 2: Chris is hot and Aubie is goofy. Season 3: Aubie is back to being hot and Chris is chubby and goofy.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      SPOT ON. Makes them more interesting? I call BS, they’re still boring as hell

    • HeyAll says:

      lol!! Albie wasn’t hot in S2 though? i missed it

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Too bad they aren’t twins, just think of how many episodes they could squeeze out of that. ‘Hey, let’s both date the same girl and see if she notices’.

  65. Butters'Mom says:

    I still actually like Caroline and like her family scenes she did raise good kids. An oddity for Housewives.

    • 123READY -been watching Jersey Marathon and am going crazy says:

      I agree with that. They may be boring to some but they seem alright and it’s obvious they love each other.

    • error404 says:

      OMG the Manzo kids are my worse nightmare! Just when I thought my daughter having no higher aspirations than make-up artist was heart attack inducing, my son announces he needs money to open up a car wash run by strippers, and just as I’m clutching my chest telling Lizzy I’m coming to join her, oldest son comes in to announce he’s been kicked out of 3rd rate law school for being the perfect combination of stupid and lazy. Dad then tries to calm me down by assuring me he’ll give them all jobs parking cars down at the family business. Oh Madonna Mia!

      • nathania says:

        so I’m wondering,

        did the Cajun Manzo confirm that he was in fact leaving the Brownstone to open up a stripper carwash?

        This kid has GOT to be a moron. I mean, I don’t want to go into details and logistics because it’s boring but I just don’t think he ‘gets’ the business aspects of this and competing with a club where strippers can be clean, dry, and indoors.

    • nathania says:

      Every time I see them I think M-A-F-I-A.

      Mafia money buys a nice lifestyle for a stay at home mom to raise kids.

      Blood money.

      Kind of taints things a bit.

  66. Kats2 says:

    manzo’s are not enjoyable they are not cute just ignorant and boring

  67. Jen says:

    Theresa says she’s living cheap but has hair and makeup plp – well thank god for makeup guy, he saved the baby before she fell down the satirs

    • Golden Girl says:

      I know I cant believe it

    • DiaBLa says:

      Then sale the house and pay off your debts…..she makes me ill!!!! no amount of makeup is going to hide that mess…..

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      One would think if that they would have the the foresight of mind add a baby gate to their pre-filing spending spree.

    • sue says:

      Yea, this bothers me about all of them. Why can’t they apply their own make-up. I mean you would think they would get the hang of it after so many applications! I get the hair if they are going to a huge event or being filmed, but I heard some of them do it mostly everyday!

  68. Caitlin says:

    “Juicy Joe”??? I’m gonna barf!

  69. 123READY -been watching Jersey Marathon and am going crazy says:

    Is Melissa Jersey’s Jesus Barbie? Enough with Jesus’ kingdom. Oy

    • Golden Girl says:

      I just said the same thing to my husband.

    • snarkarella says:

      Little Joey looked like Chef Boyardee after they got him all dolled up in his christening duds.

    • sue says:

      Sorry, but her “thank you Jesus” is so fake, and it seems as though she is trying to create a “hook” for herself, so all of “her new fans” will start imitating her…I’m telling ya, I cannot stand this Melissa or her sisters along w/ the bro in-law. They just remind me of people who have always started crap, but then cant back it up!

  70. Cusi77 says:

    Fasten your seat belts! Here it comes!

  71. HD says:

    Of course part of me love that Teresa is getting her just desserts but I hate to see family argue. What is going on? Did I miss what the base of this argument was about. They are family. They should not be ignoring each other.

    • Austin says:

      Petty jealousies and toxic competitiveness. . . at least thats’s what I got out of it. Shocking.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I think it was when Tree threw filmed parties she ignored her immediate family, instead preferring to showcase her Manzo fambly connection.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      She’s been obnoxious to melissa and her husband ever since he bacame more successful than teresa’s juicy. When they came to teresa’s christmas party, she threw out the special cookies melissa brought. When her son was born, teresa didnt acknowledge the child, just kept going on and on how awesome it was that she was on regis and kelly.

      • Lollipop165 says:

        I’ve heard through the grapevine that the reason Teresa didn’t acknowledge the Gorga’s son is that there’s some speculation about the son’s paternity. Dunno how true that is though.

    • Kats2 says:

      I think it has a lot to do with Juicy Joe

  72. WindyCityWondering says:

    So is the explosion come soon? This episode is about to give me the runs!

  73. Mt says:

    I don’t really get a positive vibe from Melissa. I get the feeling she is as much to blame as Teresa for them not getting along or having a relationship.

    • Mt says:

      But I’m cool with Kathy so far. At least it seems she genuinely wants them to get along.

      • NJ Bev says:

        Teresa got annoyed when Kathy’s husband asked her
        how she can afford all that shopping-(years ago) and Teresa expected Kathy to tell her husband to back off…
        he was the only one watching out for her.

    • Caitlin says:

      Well, the brother said something about his family having been excluded from her “events.” I’d bet when Teresa was riding high she lorded it over them. I didn’t notice them being featured, for example, in that over-the-top wedding’like christening that she and Joe had.

      • Love all things housewives says:

        Melissa & Kathy were actually at the wasteful -over the top Baptism, but not featured or shown in any loving light… Bravo showed a quick shot of them, but you would never know they were family… TreeHead is probably wishing she did not burn the family bridges now… sad

  74. housewifeaddict says:

    I’m tired of Melissa already. All she’s done is bitch about Teresa. I thought I’d enjoy it – but ugggggh

  75. kmuellfa says:

    Did Melissa just say about Tree “That b*tch never misses a party, especially if she’s not paying for it?”



    She could declare bankruptcy twice this season, and I think I could let it slide. LOL

    • Golden Girl says:

      Same here!

    • nathania says:

      Yep, I thought…’that is so something Bethenny would say’

      I can do without the ‘thank you Jesus’ every 5 seconds though(and so can Jesus himself, I am sure).

  76. Zarout! says:

    Wow, talk about a shot across the bow! Melissa ain’t no joke! I’m guessing her talking head interview was done after the party, hence the “that bitch never misses a party” comment. Wow…

  77. HD says:

    Oh shoot…shots of Grey Goose! It’s over!

    • Golden Girl says:

      They are looking for a fight.

    • Cusi77 says:

      I will be shot HD… This Melissa makes me like Teresa!

      • NJ Bev says:

        You could actually feel sorry for Teresa right now………….

        • NJ Bev says:

          don’t get me wrong,, no fan of
          Teresa here…

          • sue says:

            I got ya, I’m no fan of T’s either, I’m going to start though. I cannot stand this Melissa,but have to say I do like Kathy and her family!

        • nathania says:

          i caught myself going down the same road then I had to remind myself the whole time it is T’s image to the viewers she was trying to protect because she sees that in terms of monetary worth and money in her pocket. She contrived an image to Bravo viewers and she knew that it was very possible her brother and SIL were about to destroy it and tell the actual truth about how much ‘family’ really means to her. They made her look like the @sshole she is, and she is afraid of losing profits, not fans.

      • Sara says:

        I wont shoot you. I felt the same.

  78. Golden Girl says:

    Oh word Caroline is crying again over the boys moving.

    • Austin says:

      Shut up, Caroline! Kids grow up. These “boys” are in their 20’s, for the love of mike!

      • Golden Girl says:

        Thank You!

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I mention before that I live in a VERY close to a Marine Corps base where mothers send their children and spouses of to war. Caroline needs to STFU before someone gives her something to cry about.

    • nathania says:

      those boys are both going to be their future wives’ nightmares. Completely incapable of doing a damn thing for themselves. Skid-marked underwear in every corner, smelly socks decorating every room.

      I feel so sorry for the poor daughter. She is like Manzorella, there to dust and take up space in the corner.

  79. HD says:

    It’s like Teresa turned into the Danielle of the show.

  80. Zarout! says:

    He’s obviously drunk.

  81. Golden Girl says:

    I don’t like Joe talking to Gia all drunk “Who loves you, who loves you”. I am not implying he is dirty in any way it just bothered me.

    • HD says:

      He may have been overdoing a little it since Teresa was standing right there.

      • Golden Girl says:

        It does seem like he was just trying to pick a fight.

      • sue says:

        I think the cameras were his motivation. That is what I mean, they come off sooo fake!…Love Kathy and her family, cant wait to see more of them, and only them!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      IDK. It’s nice to see someone in this family genuinely like someone else.

      • W says:

        I bet she reminds him a lot of Teresa when they were young too. Gia seems to love him back.

  82. Jen says:

    Ah- the truth comes out….it’s all about Treman’s lazy ass husband and how talks about her brother to the father and how Juicy can’t/doesn’t want to provide for his family….

    PS loooving Kathys dress at christianing- she’s prettiest IMO

    also in her new book apparently in the forward Treman says Caroline can’t cook and slams her for being 1/16th Italian …..

    • Kats2 says:

      No way! Teresa turns on Manzo?

    • sue says:

      Heres a thought, We were discussing the relationship between Joe Gorga and his father, and I agree that,Maybe his own father doesn’t like being around his son and daughter-in-law, because of how they act sooo superior and they “think they are all that”…Meaning, I know his father loves him, but I truly believe he doesn’t like his sons boasty, big-feeling personality!!!…T maybe a big talker, but I truly don’t recall Joe (T’s husband ) being cocky like her brother!!!

  83. AmyKish says:

    I already feel itchy. Yikes! Not a fan of the Gorga’s. Not yet anyway.

  84. kmuellfa says:

    You know, If Tree didn’t exist, maybe I wouldn’t like the Gorgas.
    Tree and her behavior just disgust me on so many levels, I’m just thrilled to have a mouthy broad who will call her on her BS.

    • W says:

      I’m not rooting for either. But they’ll butt heads and that should be interesting.

    • babykakes says:

      Teresa was on some morning show here is Los Angeles last week doing a cooking segment & said “i have to cook, i don’t have no nanny” she neglected to mention that her parents live in the basement & take care of the kids, probably do most to the cleaning, & the cooking too…

    • nathania says:

      several mouthy broads. the girl has two sisters,

      and then there is Kathy who seems to be level headed.

      I think Melissa is adorable and going to be fun to watch.

      She was made for tv. She kind of lights up the screen.

      Honestly, it’s very rare for someone like this to be on a Housewives show. I can’t think of any other housewives that are this charismatic naturally, without faking it. The only one even similar that I can think of is Bethenny. They are very different people, but Bethenny has that same strong life-energy or whatever. I don’t know how to describe it. Most of the women on these shows are soooooooooooo reserved, and Melissa comes across as totally unrehearsed and off the cuff.

      It’s unfortunate that the season started this way. But I think Melissa is going to be a huge hit, both on here and probably in anything else she wants to do in relation to this.

      • sue says:

        UNREHEARSED, are you serious?. Wow, I really don’t think you were watching the same show!…Consensus here is that Melissa is the most fake of all the housewives, of all the cities that were ever introduced. I mean c’mon, that means she beats out Bensimon and Camille, and that isn’t an easy feat!!!

  85. Cusi77 says:

    Chicken instead of chateaubrian? Ok. Terr go find your big mac, that is to much to your palat

  86. W says:

    Joe is resentful that Teresa hasn’t given him a son

  87. Golden Girl says:

    Ok, enough with the drinks.

  88. Golden Girl says:

    He is so drunk

  89. Zarout! says:

    They’re all practically slurring.

  90. MichellefromNY says:

    what nerve does teresa and joe have to dance with the baby?? I would have been livid. So innapropriate. Its not your christening

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Really why? She’s the aunt. It all seems so petty to me.

      • W says:

        She’s the aunt. What’s more appropriate than that? I thought it was fine.

      • MichellefromNY says:

        She may be the aunt, but they know the gorgas are not happy with her.So she should have asked. Basic courtesy

        • W says:

          They still invited her. And there’s no harm in it. I don’t know. I don’t see the big deal.

        • sue says:

          No, I’m sure both of them are not like that w/the kids. Don’t you remember what he said when he was hugging and kissing Gia!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        It wouldn’t have bothered me. That’s obviously their thing….

    • Austin says:

      They are definitely not feeling any love for Juicy.

  91. Jen says:

    Everyone on this show is named Joe or Joey …..

    It’s all about the husband’s hating Juicy

  92. MichellefromNY says:

    Tree is making herself out to be the victim. She disgusts me

  93. HD says:

    Oh man look at Gia in the middle.

  94. Golden Girl says:

    Gia is right there walk away

  95. NJ Bev says:

    to do that in front of the kids is inexcusable.

    • Golden Girl says:

      I think after tonight Im done watching NJ I cant support this. That made me sick seeing Gia there.

    • babykakes says:

      speaking of classless…remember the things “JOE” was saying on the bus in Italy on the way to their home town..with everyone including his children on board? he wouldn’t know class if it hit him in the balls!

    • sue says:

      This is where I think Bravo was wrong. I know they caught it while they were filming, but they did not have to show the kids. I mean they still have not let us see the lost footage of RHONY “scary island” episode.

  96. W says:

    That sister of Melissa’s escalated it.

    • housewifeaddict says:


      “Why was I invited then?”
      “A technicality?”

      Who says that!

    • Caitlin says:

      Drunken trailer trash – the lot of them.

    • Cusi77 says:

      Yes. I agree that Melissa’s sister stirr the pot big time!

      • MichellefromNY says:

        Did you see her sisters before the christening?? You can tell they wanted to start or see drama. They were sooo excited teresa was coming

        • sue says:

          Yep, I truly think they are just that type of low lifes that love doing that. That is their character, and that sister lisas husband is a joke!…Also, I believe she did say that stuff to T on the phone, she just reminds me of someone who is probably jealous of her own sister. She probably talks behind Melissa’s back, and secretly wishes bad things to happen to her (I dont mean physically). I bet her sister is even jealous of Melissa now being a housewife,cause Lisa was making sure that her butt was getting camera time!

  97. Debbie says:

    They should all be so proud of themselves…A family thick as thieves.. And that’s what they are, thieves

  98. Smompy says:


    “I’ll f***ing kill all of you!”

    And it’s only the first episode. YAY!

  99. RealFan says:

    This is off the hook now!!

  100. Zarout! says:

    I guess the table issues run in the family…

  101. Ruby Newbie says:

    Hi everybody! Seems like forever since I last posted here. Haven’t been watching much Bravo but now that these hot messes are back so am I!

    OMG they are the WORST! You stay classy RHoNJ! Where to even begin??

    • ShinyPenny says:

      You all will kill me but this is going to be must see tv. So much is going on. It’s hard to even keep up but I’m glued.

  102. HD says:

    I bet Teresa is having de ja vu when she was so big and bad running Danielle out of that place.

  103. Austin says:


  104. W says:

    Joe seemed calm to me. It was Teresa’s brother who went berzerk.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      There are too many Joes – but T’s brother has serious serious anger issues. There is raging jealousy there. And serious feeling of inferiority.

    • Jen says:

      Drunken rampage, he was on. Look at him now drunkenly screaming in his fathers face- Wow! I hate Tre but the Gorgas are trashy too….
      Liking Kathy though, her and her husband got the kids first and foremost

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Agreed. Joe Gorga only jumped up when he saw joe giudice charging at him cuz he saw teresa arguing with him. IMO? Both joes were drinking too much

    • JenD says:

      I agree Joe was relaxed he seems like he wanted to defend his wife (every hubby would). Melissa’s husband charge first, they just wanted to show off to the camera. Seems like Teresa was the pro, since she was not her raudy self. Melissa’s sisters are trouble since they were the one who keeps on asking for teresa…and they instigated the whole thing. I think they are jealous of their sister Melissa and i remember when Teresa said that Lysa plyed both side…i actually cried watching this episode…reminds me of my own family

      • Sara says:

        Aww I’m sorry to hear that. I know it’s really sad when families fight like this.

      • nathania says:

        It made me sad too because I can see this in the future with the current nightmare SIL that I have.

        But only over stuff having to do with the children, nothing else.

        I don’t believe what T. said about Melissa’s sister.

        I believe the cameras were on Joe Gorga when it happened but I don’t believe he charged Joe, I think it happened like Melissa said it did, Joe Giudice has a chip on his shoulder because he is freaking bankrupt and disgraced and he’s trying to take down Joe Gorga to build himself up.

        • alicia says:

          I have heard they are both soon to be bankrupt, Joe Gorga has a one million dollar ballon note due on his home he can’t pay. Maybe that’s why he’s so pissy.

          • nathania says:

            ohhhhhhhhhhh he’s the one.

            I knew there was somebody with something like that going down… I though it was the Bellinos.

            hmmm…this should be interesting.

  105. Kats2 says:

    Trash, we all knew it, I hope the 15 minutes of fame is worth it

  106. housewifeaddict says:

    Melissa is delusional. Teresa and both Joes have MAJOR anger issues. No one is blameless.

    I’m glad Kathy got the kids out of there.

  107. Austin says:

    Srsly, who gets drunk at their own son’s christening and acts like that?


  108. MichellefromNY says:

    Why would juicy joe charge at them??? He just wanted to fight with joe gorga

    • snarkarella says:

      Agreed, but Joe Gorga was giving Tre a raft of shit and basically telling her to F-off. So, I don’t blame him…sort of. It wasn’t unprovoked. Melissa makes it sound like the parties at the Gorga table were sitting quietly having tea and cakes when Juicy Joe came charging at them like a raging bull. That’s not what I saw.

      • nathania says:

        he told her to ‘take a walk’.

        She should have.

        I mean, child is born, no cameras, they don’t go to hospital. There was another event, I can’t remember, Melissa said, they didn’t show, no cameras. All of a sudden, cameras, Teresa comes over to them to make a big show, for the sake of her ‘image’ and gets dismissed. I can’t say that I blame them, because they knew she was just doing it for the sake of the cameras. Some people would put up with that, but I guess they had enough of it.

        Juiced up Joe should have kept it zipped. He, better than anyone, knows what his wife is about. She’s the one that ran him into a 12 million dollar bankruptcy trying to keep up with the Giovannis, after all. He knows she is a big phony who is all about show and image. He should have walked away. He caused this garbage to happen.

        • NJ Bev says:

          The brother called her “garbage” in front of the
          niece and Godchild he had just professed to
          “love” so much.
          The sister said her invitation “was a technicality”
          in front of Gia as well-

          I don’t care for “Juicy”, (at all) but if someone
          spoke to me like that, I would think my husband
          would not be happy.

          I also think the brother was pissed that juicy
          wouldn’t take a shot with him-not knowing
          the morning that Joe had with the “runs”

          • nathania says:

            I thought about that too.

            That you don’t do shots when you are ALREADY in trouble with your tummy. Too bad the brother in law jumped to conclusions on that.

            But Joe’s whole demeanor is just crushed this season. I don’t think the Gorgas have the same financial problems. Joe is ashamed of himself, so he is trying to take from Joe-brother the one thing of value he can, the father/son thing.

  109. Golden Girl says:

    Did you hear Gia yelling “Stop it stop it”?

    • Cusi77 says:

      Gia came since the beginning of the fight to stop Teresa from fighting with her brother… That brother is sooooo dramatic!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      That really broke my heart.
      What does it say about the adults involved when a child has to emerge as the voice of reason.

  110. Zarout! says:

    Yeah, that’s exactly what he needs…another trip to the bar.

  111. HD says:

    That Grey Goose will get you everytime. I promise. He had those liquid muscles, he was already pissed at Teresa and you know a drunk man never lies. Everything he felt came out.

  112. Jen says:

    Anyone else catch some other women comforting Joe Gorga ? She was in a black dress, curly hair? Not his sister in laws- but also not his wife

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I thought she said she was his sister – his true sister – which I took to mean she was a sister in law and Melissa’s family was his “true” family.

      Man they have serious issues. And they choose to work them out on national tv.

      • Jen says:

        It was before that scene, it was as they were trying to hold the brother back- this woman with brown frizzy hair was stroking his face…..and soothing him….

        Maybe I saw it to fast and imagined it….

  113. WindyCityWondering says:

    Animals? Guess they should have had the christening at the zoo!

  114. Cusi77 says:

    J. Gorga does speak Italian, Teresa not that well

  115. Ruby Newbie says:

    Whoa! That wasn’t even funny. Wow.

    • Golden Girl says:

      I know it was too much

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I’m beginning to think Danielle wasn’t lying about T. Not that Danielle wasn’t a piece of work – – –

      • Golden Girl says:

        Same here.

      • Austin says:

        Well, Danielle certainly called that situation right at last season’s reunion regarding Theresa and her family. It explains (partially) why Theresa reacted so violently when she stood up and screamed in Danielle’s face and then pushed Andy into his chair.

  116. Golden Girl says:

    I don’t think I can watch this show again. Idk

    • Happymouth says:

      I am pretty stunned……………….glad that I have this blog………………this episode is far from my REALITY

    • Caitlin says:

      Amen – even for a Housewives gig (where the bar is incredibly low) this is stomach-churning. Especially given the occasion and all the children in attendance. Ish!!!!

  117. HD says:

    This franchise (RH) has only left me speechless once before-when Kelly flipped out. Watching that scene tonight I was speechless. That was raw and uncut.

    • Happymouth says:

      DITTO…..I am shell shocked

    • W says:

      Joe G drunk yelling at his father… ugh. Sad.

    • nathania says:

      I know, it’s very strange, I have shell-shock.

      I think those of us who watch the rest of the season will do so in a state of PTSD.

      I reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally don’t want to watch it…but I find Melissa adorable. There is something so cute about her. It’s nice to have someone lively on there, instead of the three bitter shrews left from last season. And Kathy really seems to be grounded.

      On another note, the baby was adorable, the one that got christened. The outfit was so cute, the painting of him was adorable.

      It’s so bizarre to me that, on the other hand, all of Teresa’s children sound like pack-a-day smokers. What is up with that?

    • quincyil says:

      They went out of the country and had another fight in a hotel bar. These people are violent.

  118. NJ Bev says:

    Melissa was on The Today show this morning(they all were)
    and she was clearly embarrassed by this event…..
    Guess when she saw it on film she realized she wasn’t blameless

  119. snarkarella says:

    Holy baptismal fonts! That’s one crazy-a&& family!
    Tre’s brother is kinda scary!

    Every Italian family seems to have a Joe like the Greeks have their Nicks.

  120. WindyCityWondering says:

    The Gorga family has the temper gene big time! Teresa’s brother was looking for a fight and he found one. Something tells me Teresa is daddy’s favorite and little brother can’t stand it.

    • Kats2 says:

      Brother and Sister have a lot in common. Both trouble makers with tempers who married trouble makers.

    • snarkarella says:

      For reals. The way I see it Joe Gorga started that whole brouhaha at the reception. Of course, Melissa says the Judy Chays were “charging” them. This is going to be a wild ride!

      • W says:

        Joe G started it. I also think he got upset when Melissa’s sisters butted in, but he took it out on Teresa instead.

  121. MichellefromNY says:

    As much as that scene was HORRIBLE. I am so happy someone can stand up to tree. She is being bitch slapped like nobody’s business

    • nathania says:

      I know.

      And it’s killing her because it’s about her image, which means $$$ to her.

      Poor Danielle Staub had no family to stand by her. Melissa has two sisters, a cousin who loves her, Joey apparently gets on well with much of the family…all of whom seem to have been privy to some of Terroresa’s psychotic episodes.

      Oh, the tide has turned….

  122. WindyCityWondering says:

    Well it looks like Teresa will be going down this season Danielle style – poor baby.

  123. AZ Girl says:

    Joey was absolutely out of control. No matter how pissed he was at his sister he should NEVER act that way. I think Joey has been watching too many Godfather movies and expects Tree to bow down and be respectful. Hey Joey it is 2011 o.k.?

    I promise you a guy like that comes to AZ and tries to pull that jersey stuff in a banquet/restaurant here? To a woman no less his sister? His remains would be found 20 years from now somewhere out in the desert. HA!!!

  124. Austin says:

    Oh my – I cannot believe people would act like that. At a baby’s christening! And I always thought my family put the “fun” in dysfunction.

    I would be seriously traumatized if I had been a guest in that situation.

    • Golden Girl says:

      I would have left.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Yes me too. I’m traumatized just watching it. I wonder if Joe Gorga is abusive. It’s hard to believe he keeps that anger under control at home.

  125. MichellefromNY says:

    Honestly, when tree says of melissa’s outfit (that she wore while singing mind you) she would wear that as a teenager not now, all I was thinking was, tree you dress like a whore so really don’t talk.

  126. Whisper says:

    Kathy: ” I don’t even get that whole Juicy thing”
    Uhmm, neither do we.

    • nathania says:

      I really like Kathy so far.

      A voice of reason. She seems very civilized, and I loved the scene where she was riding the bike, that was so cute.

      I think Bravo has sucked me in again. After the lynch-mob vs. Danielle last season, I didn’t think I could stomach it. But Bravo really has brought some justice by adding Melissa, and giving her an ally, which they SHOULD have done for Danielle last year.

  127. HD says:

    I think it is obvious both Teresa and Joey are hurting. They love each other. If they can get away with no one else around to butt in, they probably could make up.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Little Joey sounds like he has years of resentment floating around and now his dad likes Teresa’s husband best – this won’t end well unless he can let go of all that baggage.

    • W says:

      IA. But it’s no longer just the two of them and that’s their biggest problem.

      • babykakes says:

        they are all TRASH TRASH TRASH & each show makes it more & more obvious….no Teresa, no one is just jealous of ‘Jersey girls’

  128. WindyCityWondering says:

    This may be the big get even for Teresa’s brother (not so much Melissa) – they weren’t shown at Audrienna’s christening, sounds like they weren’t invited to many Guidice family events either. Joey Gorga is the male version of Teresa so I’m not expecting class and civility.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      T tried to keep Melissa off the show too – that’s probably what most of this is about – that T wouldn’t share her fame – while Dina got Caro and Jaq on the show.

  129. Jon Targaryen says:

    Holy shit!

    These people are nuts.

  130. Kats2 says:

    Too bad it wasn’t at the Brown Stone

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      No way would Caroline let that happen! lol

      • NJ Bev says:

        The place it was at “The Manor” is probably
        the nicest place in NJ to have a catered affair.
        It is beautiful………

        • SD says:

          It sure looked stunning.

        • Anne says:

          The Manor is OK, but if you want to do a nice party you normally go to TPC Jasna Polana country club in Princeton. This is PGA rated and does the BMW pro-am. They do events…but when you are member very different. People from 80% of the partners of KKR, Apollo Group, Goldman etc are members…

  131. Joni Targaryen says:

    Can’t wait for the recap, because so much happened so fast I don’t even know what I just saw!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Bravo is airing it three times in a row!

      • Avu says:

        They have issues and I honestly don’t feel like I want anyone sticking it to anyone. I hope they are able to mend the wounds. I felt so bad for Teresa’s parents.

  132. housewifeaddict says:

    How are Caroline and Jaq going to handle this new show with T and her crazy family. They won’t be able to ignore them like they did Danielle.

    • babykakes says:

      they will be jealous of all the attention they are NOT getting

      • nathania says:


        I said I wasn’t going to watch it but turned it on at work out of boredom.

        I was surprised this WWF-Christening Smackdown thing happened on the first episode. I was thinking it was going to be at the end.

        I think the Manzo’s are getting shoved to the edges on ‘their own’ show, which is hysterical to me. It’s also the most fitting and appropriate karma in the world for Terroresa, because you can tell, she does NOT want this drama to be part of her schtick. She wants the ‘family’ image, and this is going to destroy it.

        Somewhere Danielle Staub kicked back with a tub of popcorn, laughing very quietly to herself. I felt a bit sorry for Danielle tonight, because Andy really fired her like she was a, or THE, problem on this show, and clearly, she was just a scapegoat. The problem is Teresa and her psychosis. And she is going to be getting her richly deserved karma from the looks of things.

  133. Caitlin says:

    They should all be forced to watch this taped party/brouhaha in the cold, sober, light of day. No one, except for the children, will look good. And what about the so-called concern for the sick father?

  134. Golden Girl says:

    Night all 🙂 It was fun chatting with you guys I’m going to try and go to sleep after seeing those animals go after each other in front of their kids.

  135. WindyCityWondering says:

    Ashley is still an asshat and her mother is still a doormat.

  136. Jen says:

    Correct me if I am wrong but when the blogs reported this incident, didn’t Theresa totally deny it even occurred on Twitter? I thought I remember that….

    • Savannah001 says:

      Jen, YES your correct we did hear about this fight taking place and Teresa denied it either in a interview or on Twitter but she did deny it..

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I don’t know – but I kind of remember that this was when she was in contract negotiations, so I kinda thought she was dialing up the drama to make sure they met her demands. After seeing it – I’d have to say it didn’t look like she went up there to pick a fight. Not like that time with Danielle. Her brother clearly didn’t want anything to do with her – which is what started everything.

    • nathania says:

      yeah, but she din’t swear on her children’s lives and remember, she don’t swear on her children’s lives when she’s lyin’

  137. Joni Targaryen says:

    Those poor kids! ALL of them that had to witness that, but especially Gia, torn between her Godfather and Uncle and her Juicy dad.

    • Savannah001 says:

      You said it, those poor kids, it says something when a young child like Gia has the sense to know that her mother is about to lose control and trys to pull her away..

  138. Cusi77 says:

    My uncle (who had the worst daughter in law) used to say “Two teats pull more than two carts”, Teresa said that her brother used to be her best friend until he got married…

    • Savannah001 says:

      I’m watching it again here in Georgia I’m still trying to digest it all, Holy Shit is about all I can really say at the moment. I’m glad theres other people on the show that know Teresa and Joe without a doubt and I dont think they will put up with Teresa and Joes crap for a second I’m loving that I have to be honest.

    • nathania says:

      okay Cusi I am thick,
      what does this idiom mean exactly?

      we have had two borderlines in our ‘in law’ collection…

      walking nightmares, de facto prostitutes, hell on earth to be around…

      my oldest brother just got married to his second wife after knowing her only a few months, we are praying she is not as nuts as his first wife…

      what are the ‘two carts’ referring to?

      • kotagirl29 says:

        You’re not the only one who didn’t get it. I have no clue what that is supposed to mean. Maybe it is something about women and jealousy and fighting, but I don’t really know.

        • NJ Bev says:

          “teat” is the nipple on a cows udder.
          I think it means sex will pull a man faster
          than 2 carts(presumably pulled by horses)
          that’s my guess!!

  139. Lavalady says:

    Being on a tv show isn’t going to help these people one bit. They have major resentments and issues to work out. I feel for the children, especially Gia. She was very aware of what was going on. Not only was she trying to hold Teresa back, you could also hear her voice crying out during the whole fight.

    I don’t think I’m going to like the season at all. Not enjoyable to watch so far. Why does Bravo think this is what we want to see. I’ll take BEA over this any day.

    Ashley is the same age as my daughter. My daughter has an unpaid internship in the city, and she commutes. Yes, it’s hard, but it’s what you have to do if you want to get a job. You show up on time, you make a good impression and maybe they offer you a full time position. Why does this young woman think everything should be handed to her on a silver platter. She has little job experience, no college education, and yet she wants to waltz into a full time paid position in NYC with enough salary to live in the city. Please Ashley, grow up and quickly.

  140. WindyCityWondering says:

    Chris really wants Ashley to go away. He is offering to pay for her to commute, since she isn’t getting paid how is she getting there now? Ashley is a tool, her mother is just as stupid and needy and they annoy me no end.

  141. LynnnSoCal says:

    I’m done! Not sure what Miss Andy’s agenda is…where will this lead? Violence, trashy ignorant cast members, foul mouthed drunks and children! I’ve quit NY, never watched OC or Atlanta. I got involved with NJ and swore off last season. Love the chat format so made an attempt. Contemptible behavior! These are adults, parents. Are you kidding me? I find Jersey Shore a depressing commentary on current young adult behavior. This is JS for the older crowd? Not doing it! Will haunt the blogs for the gems of humor. Aloha to all! Thanks Lynn Hudson, adore your site.

  142. VAgirl says:

    Is this for real? Do families really act this way? Thank God I have a somewhat normal family. We’ve had our moments, but nothing close to that. And I have to say I liked the scenes with the Manzos and I like Kathy so far.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      The alcohol played a large part in this. Joe Gorga was mad – and got madder and madder as he got drunker and drunker. I don’t know if families behave like this – but drunk people in bars do.

      It is unbelievable that Joe Gorga has so little self control that he’s get stinking drunk at an event with children and his parents.

      Melissa’s sisters were also looking for a fight. Who does that?? Maybe they wanted screen time.

      • VAgirl says:

        Well maybe the drinking makes a big difference. We do little or no drinking at family events. I agree it was pretty irresponsible for the dad of the christened baby to get snockered.

        • SD says:

          I wonder if it’s a cultural thing.

          • Lollipop165 says:

            I’m Italian American and alcohol is a part of all family functions. I find most Italian American families are like that – although women aren’t generally expected to drink. Particularly in the older generation, as the women would be the ones cooking while the men drank. At least that’s my experience.

  143. WindyCityWondering says:

    Well I don’t like Joe Gorga and I hope we don’t have to see too much of him. He seems to want to be the center of attention just like his sista.

  144. Jen says:

    Caroline and joe are holding hands… We have support through this next part….

    It’s been a long time since I have commented. I just started planning my son’s and his fiance’s wedding. I am gasping at venue prices in upper Michigan. Do you think I could recruit someone from this show to do it for me – they sure know how to throw a party!
    the funniest news I received today is that I can rent the VFW Pavilion for $45 (family rate) instead of $60. BUT if we plan on serving alcohol, we must hire security guards for 4 1/2 hours to the tune of $130. WHERE ARE THE SECURITY GUARDS IN NJ!!!!

    • VAgirl says:

      Like your name!

      • moneycanbuyyouass says:

        I must give credit to Bethany!!! (for my name) Love her and would you believe that my son wh0 is getting married is named Brian (like Jason’s brother AND his fiance’s name is Bryn!!!!)

      OMG- Isn’t it scary?
      when she was is the Talking Head I couldn’t
      believe what I was seeing!! She got old…..

    • sue says:

      Yea, gotta give T and Joe their props, it seems they are working hard and It really looked to us as though T def. learned a lesson and is a bit more humble. Hey we all make mistakes, and I’m glad to see they are trying to make it work. I dont know if it is just me, but I think Joe seems more peaceful, cause everyone kept saying, “hes not saying anything cause hes embarrassed and scared”, I truly think he feels relieved!

  153. Adgirl says:

    So. Wait. There will be a Scary Island II?

  154. boston02127 says:

    My electric went out 20 minutes in to NJ. It’s just starting again now at midnight.

    • NJ Bev says:

      Why? was it a storm?
      are you ok?

      • boston02127 says:

        No storm, it’s just damp out. There must of been an car accident. I was reading by candle light, I’m glad the ele is back on.

        • NJ Bev says:

          It is the worst when the power goes out-
          it makes you wonder how the human race
          ever made it in the dark. (do i sound like
          Ashley) did you get to see the Ashley scene?

          how is the construction going?

          • boston02127 says:

            I saw the Ashley scene this time around. I don’t like her. Construction is going but a little slow. I’m still waiting for a stove and painting the halls still has to be done. But I’m doing pretty good with sorting everything out. It’s hard getting rid of things that were my mothers. I’m off until June so I have time to go slow. Thank you for asking.

  155. boston02127 says:

    I saw the part of the Christening. It was disturbing.

  156. boston02127 says:

    Teresa’s brother seems like just as big a nutbag as Teresa.

  157. MichellefromNY says:

    We’d all probably hate the gorgas if it wasnt for the fact that they finally call teresa out on her BS “fabulousness”.

    And I don’t like joe gorga, but I really like melissa. If you remember, she was the one–like gia–trying to get joe to stop. She was so embarrassed that her party was ruined like that. Yes they are all classless, but I’m thinking melissa has a tiny speck of class and knew her husband was drunk and capable of violence. She really tried to diffuse the situation because she knew this was the wrong time to have a takedown.

    They all looked bad here. But Gia and Melissa were the only two trying to stop it and kathy was the only one with sense to get the kids out of the thick of the brawl. Melissa’s sisters were trying to stir up shit, both joes were looking for blood, and some of those gusts were pummeling the hell out of each other. Makes me sick.

    So my conclusion is I like melissa, kathy, kathy’s husband and I really dislike joe gorga and still hate teresa and juicy joe

    • NJ Bev says:

      What was it with the sisters? what morons-
      If Teresa had to deal with those 3 ganging up
      on her for all these years, Melissa isn’t going
      to look good for long-
      I wonder if the sisters are wanna-be housewives??

    • SD says:

      I dont buy Melissa. I think she’s just as guilty of planting things in her own husbands head. I thought I saw her pushing people in that scuffle so she’s no peacemaker, she seems to have the temper as well. Her sisters don’t embody class, much as they tried to make it seem that way. I believe it was Lysa who said they weren’t raised that way, and yet she was the one who instigated with the comment that Teresa had been invited on a technicality. No, it’s all of them. No one is blameless.

      • Cheri says:

        I saw her kicking someone too. None of them have class. Teresa should not have gone to the table to begin with, her brother drunk on his a** and looking for a fight, the sister should have kept her nose out of it as she stirred up an already tense situation, looked like Joe was responding to them attacking his wife, the brother went ape crazing, sister n law was getting her kicks in, i thought it was joe’s sister comforting teresa’s brother, t’s brother stayed crazy while Joe appeared to be calm and leaving. They were all at fault. Teresa’s brother is nuts and I think his wife has a real problem with Teresa and most likely is a b**** herself.

        • detrcait says:

          I agree! It’s no wonder Tree didnt want Melissa on the show, she is awful! All she wants to do is bring Teresa down, but yet, she loves to say she is all about “family”. Seems to me like she had been jealous of Teresa’s fame all along and is going to do whatever she has to to be more famous than Tree. Really sad. I would hate to have a SIL like her.

  158. codystl says:

    Watching this just makes me sad. There’s a whole lot of talking (screaming) and no communicating. Someone needs to shut their mouth and listen, but no one is talking any sense, just a lot of finger pointing. Oh, and too much alcohol.

    I’m not sure who the shit-stirrer is in this show. Based on this episode, T’s sister-in-law seems to be.

    I’m not sure if the new cast members add anything positive to the show. Not sure if I’ll make it all season. Or, I’ll just have to fast forward to get the the Manzo parts.

  159. WindyCityWondering says:

    Families big or small can have issues – but at weddings, christening, funerals that is all put aside. What disturbs me the most was all the children who had to witness this cage fight. Sorry, even if it was my husband was causing the problem – I would have my kids out of there so fast you would think a tornado when through the room!

  160. snarkarella says:

    Where was Chris and Jacqueline’s baby? I didn’t see him when Tre and Jac were talking. Audriana was there but I didn’t see the little boy and I didn’t see him when everyone was at Caroline’s for dinner.

    • kotagirl29 says:

      I was wondering where the baby was too. Kind of weird.

      • vilzvet says:

        He’s a cutie, I’m sure we will see him soon. Did we HAVE to see Ashley so heavily featured? What an absolute moron, she hasn’t changed a bit. The only reason Lizzie Grubman was shown was for publicity, it’s a win-win situation. I remember her well from her hit and run, it was a big story here on Long Island and she got off pretty easily. She did a terrible thing and it’s hard to believe she now has a successful PR firm.

  161. Adgirl says:

    A bunch of drunks.

  162. NJ Bev says:

    Andy Cohen on Letterman right now!!

    • NJ Bev says:

      Andy handled himself very well, and Dave
      brought the right questions. very interesting
      dynamic, seeing Andy so humble!

  163. JT says:

    My cousin married an Italian man. His side of the family is pretty much everything to him and it causes problems with our side. We have issues too, but damn, nothing like that.

  164. HeyAll says:

    Casian voice? Am I hearing this correctly?

    • kotagirl29 says:

      I think he meant ‘Cajun’, but with that ‘Jersey accent its hard to tell.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        we dont have accents LOL
        im from NJ im from a predomintly Italian family NO ONE in my family sound like those yahoos
        no one would ever dream to worry about someone having thier friend and making sauce
        that could be because im the one that makes it and quite well if i do say myself LOL

  165. La Dolce Vita says:

    Andy Cohen was very good on Letterman. He looked super good, and he does interview well. Loved his comments about OC: keep those boobs behind the gates. (refering to the gated community) & I’m paraphrasing here. His style was upbeat and amusing.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      oh damn i missed that too was watching rerun of Game Of Thrones omg it was really gory
      and then the newest installment of The Killing and then i just konked out
      Andy to me anyways always looks good

  166. WTF says:

    If Joe G wants his daddy, he should buy a smaller house and work less hours. Melissa won’t likey that?

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Because Melissa needs someone to come to the house to do her hair 3 times a week silly. Praise Jesus.

  167. ForeverO says:

    Melissa is incredibly fake. This bitch made me feel for Teresa. She’s the one seething of jealousy, wanting the spotlight, and more than happy to proclaim that her husband can pay their bills. We’ll see.

    • sue says:

      That what I’m saying foreverO, Melissa was trying to come off sweet and innocent, but then make a very contradictory statement and think we would not notice. She has a very devious look in her eyes and both her sisters have it to, like they think they are slick and they are fooling us. Trust me, Melissa’s sisters are probably jealous of her, and I’m sure the do backstabbing, mean things to Melissa. They are probably just being nice to her to get on the show. Isn’t it funny what T told her sister about the phone call, to me I believe that phone call did happed just the way T said, cause that female and her husband are complete morons!

  168. Stella says:

    Seems like 99% of posts on twitter are people saying they don’t like Melissa and that Melissa is jealous of Teresa. I didn’t realize so many people were THAT into Teresa.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t think it means they are into Teresa, I can’t stand T but I don’t think Melissa is much better. She is just a younger and much better looking version of her.

  169. Nancy says:

    I wonder if Joe drove himself to the church?
    Did you see all the purses Gia has?
    Baby gate Teresa!
    Bravo had no problem putting this episode on air but wouldn’t put the entire
    Scary Island on it. How could SI be worse than what we saw tonight?

    • Adgirl says:

      Threats of legal action? Jill spoke to Kelly all of the time. Maybe she suggested it.

    • jeepers1941 says:

      Actually I believe T went back to the house and picked up J and the baby. She got out of the car from the driver’s side and he got out of passenger side of the car.
      As far as SI, I think KOOKOO might have told Bravo if they showed all of what happened, she would sue them, IMO that is.

    • boston02127 says:

      I couldn’t believe how many pocketbooks Gia had. She has more than me by far. When I was little my mother use to give me animal crackers and I’d use that empty box as a purse. Lol, I was a trend setter.

  170. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    LOL i didnt even remember it was on did the one new relative do the coo coo thing
    thats the only part in the commercial that makes me laugh

  171. jeepers1941 says:

    I think these people are all straight from the gutter. Who in the world would act like they did knowing they would be caught on film? Joey is a father’s nightmare. He is so upset that his folks choose to live with T & Juicy and not him. As for Joey’s wife Melissa(?) she is no better than T. They all are nuts, scumbags and pure white trash! Jacqueline needs to kick Ashley’s ass to the curb IMO. If she doesn’t, I have a feeling that it will cause trouble in her marriage. Chris I think has had it with both of them and like I said, if Jacque doesn’t set Ashley straight, he will set them both down and tell it like it is. Jacque needs to grow some balls where Ashley is concerned. She needs to tell Ashley she will give her 6 months to find a paying job, save her money and then get her own place. If Ashley doesn’t do it, then she is out of her house for good this time, no more bullshit from her lazy ass either. She is nothing but a whinning little spoiled brat and she thinks she is above working for what she wants, that it should just be handed to her. I can’t stand her and in my book, she is very close to being another jz….YIKES!!

    • boston02127 says:

      I can’t stand Ashley either and I can’t believe she’s 19. She’s a spoiled brat that can barely put 2 words together. She’s not in school yet she has an internship?
      Did you notice where she work there was a big schedule board and nothing but Thanksgiving was filled in for the month of November. There were only 4 dates filled in for the month of October but I couldn’t read what it said. I wonder what they do there.

  172. boston02127 says:

    Good morning. No sun again today. I’m watching the news about Arnold Schwarzenegger having a baby with the house staff and kept it a secret for a decade. I feel badly for his wife, she must be so humiliated. Imagine him hiding that for all those years.

  173. boston02127 says:

    Kelly’s tweet~~~~ Morninnn. Im so flattered by the excitement of ny new book coming out: lets get healthy, happy, and hot together.
    Let’s hope it’s printed on recycled paper.

  174. boston02127 says:

    It’s probably better off that Teresa and Melissa aren’t good friends. Can you imagine the two of them together planning and scheming.

  175. jeepers1941 says:

    so what did you think about joey?

    • boston02127 says:

      He made his drunken TV debut! When he was at the Christening and started banging his fist on the table, it got me nervous and I thought if I were there I’d leave. Him and Teresa are so angry and violent.

      • jeepers1941 says:

        yes they are, it reminded me of T table flipping, but you have to remember they are animals as in apes, and they can get very violent. I expected them to behave like they did. T is so over the top with her anger as is joey. They all are to some extent. Wonder what NJ folks are thinking today about this show?

      • Nancy says:

        So did I. I got that sick scary feeling in my gut. All of those kids are going to be rally messed up.
        CPS anyone?

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I think a lot of his anger towards Teresa is indirectly because of his father. Major daddy issues there. If these people sat down and actually talked to each other they wouldn’t be throwing punches and calling people garbage at christenings.

  176. jeepers1941 says:

    he is a little piss ant I think the baby does look a lot like juciy!

  177. Lavalady says:

    I get a local NJ paper. On the front page this am there was a picture of the NJ Housewives and Simon. But no Teresa. They were attending a viewing party at the Brownstone, but Teresa’s was in Tribeca?

  178. jeepers1941 says:

    Most of the men on these shows think that the women should be home doing their wifely duties, and that sets my blood pressure a risen real quick….LOL

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      a cook in the kitchen, a lady in the parlor and a whore in the bedroom – so that means they shouldn’t be out in public ever!

  179. Kelly Anne says:

    I think Kathy could become as liked as Bethenny. She seems very down-to-earth and level-headed.

    • jeepers1941 says:

      Is she the one that is married to the man with the black framed glasses?

      • Kelly Anne says:

        Her husband seems a little iffy…but I liked when Teresa said he always tells her to stop spending so much.

    • HD says:

      Girl when I first read that I thought you said Kelly. I thought is this a joke?!! LOL! I had to read it again and I saw you said Kathy. Yes, I did like her last night. She seemed pretty level headed.

  180. boston02127 says:

    Does anyone else think that Caroline’s husband seems disgusted with his son Albie? I don’t think it’s the law school thing either. He looks at him with hate in his eyes.

    • jeepers1941 says:

      I didn’t notice that so much as I did his comments about Chris leaving the Brownstone. I think something must have happened at the Brownstone and A;bert told Chris he had to leave. There is just something about the Manzo family that is not on the up and up. I did however notice the Albert senior look a little worse for wear and was wondering about his health, or maybe it was about him getting off of that commisioners board!

      • NJ Bev says:

        I think Chris is leaving Brownstone only to
        make a story line for their own reality show.
        one story line must be Chris looking for a
        new job…
        it wouldn’t be much of a show w/ Chris spending
        6 days a week at the Brownstone(think of
        the legal work trying to get clearance from all
        the patrons.)

      • Nancy says:

        Those “boy’s” better marry Italians because no sane woman is going to put up with mommy Carolyn smothering them.
        At least I wouldn’t.

    • error404 says:

      that was kinda sad. ya gotta have some nerve to call something a “biography” and not even include basic information like birthdate. but this part I loved: “The guy who finally scored Bethenny has a resume of his own. He is in the downtown NYC financial industry, working primarily in real estate.” andawhatta? Ok, I thought he was a pharmaceutical rep who moonlit as a personal trainer. guess not. but this actually says nothing. LOL they’ve always been really sketchy about his career, I have no idea why. I doubt he was like a porn star or something when she met him. LOL

      • vilzvet says:

        error, did you hold off and not watch NJ? Are you still boycotting? Would love your take…

    • Anne says:

      Jason never worked in the financial industry. EVER. He has an associate realtor’s license and he was a pharma rep. Nothing else.

  181. boston02127 says:

    I’m up three cups of coffee now. No school, I’m not working this afternoon or tonight. I don’t know what to do with myself. I can feel my adrenaline running. I’m going to log off and find something to do for a while. BBL. 🙂

  182. error404 says:

    I’m from New England. I just read this in a magazine, and you tell me if you think it’s nice or nerdy.

    ” We love eat on our front porch or picnic on our lawn” says designer Jessica Helgerson of Portland, Oregon. “We wind up chatting with people who walk by, making new friends, and inviting a neighbor over for a glass of rose or a slice of watermelon.”

    • VAgirl says:

      I’m from the South and that sounds like a southern thing to me. Nice, not nerdy IMO.

      • Christine says:

        Down South here, too. Not nerdy, very nice. People still help carry things out of stores for you, call you Ma’am and Sir and actually greet you, even strangers.

  183. I haven’t caught up on all the comments so I don’t know if this was posted yet.
    Jill Zarin’s Internet Superfans Are Probably Just Jill Zarin

    If we’ve learned anything from the cautionary tale of Dilbert creator Scott Adams, it’s that masquerading as your own biggest fan on the internet can come back to bite you in the ass. You’d think that lesson might have sunk in by now for Real Housewives of New York City star Jill Zarin, who we’ve already caught once writing glowing Amazon user reviews for her own advice book (while accusing its critics of being antisemites). But someone — not saying it’s Jill! Could be anyone really! Innocent until proven Zarin!— has been bombarding the Vulture comments section with suspiciously pro-Jill propaganda.

    The post in question is about how the entire New York cast might be given the boot and replaced with women of the same fab-bracket as those of the Beverly Hills franchise. Here’s what a random sampling of RHNYC fans are saying:

    Gingerette3: “Bravo is nothing more than one big BS machine, creating stories like this to rile you people up. They would NEVER drop this cast. Maybe Alex and Kelly but NEVER the rest. Too many people love Jill Zarin. She is the best of all housewives. We LOVE her!!”

    Cookie09: “Give Jill Zarin her own show and get rid of these co-stars. Bring Kelly along for laughs.”

    jillzarinfan1: “I would agree with the long needed removal of Alex McCord as well as Ramona who has obviously drank herself into another reality. But I watch the show for ladies like Jill Zarin… Jill has a star quality that makes the show great.”

    Michelle1234: “Jill Zarin is the heart and soul of Real Housewives of NYC I would not watch without her…Jill Zarin is the only lady on the show that is a true New Yorker. Start with Jill and rebuilt around her.”

    GliterGirl: “Replacing some but not all of the cast sounds like a great idea to me! Not sure all of them should go though. I enjoy watching Jill Zarin to see what she’s up too, but Sonja can go.”

    ladychic101: “I love Jill Zarin and think shes great…the show definatley [sic] would not be the same without her.”

    DorisMo: “NOOOOO! I watch the Real Housewives of NY ALL THE TIME! I’m totally gonna miss Jill Zarin….So sad 😦 I love her…she is so fun to watch on the show.”

    XLilyPadX: “This is very sad news! I am a big Jill Zarin fan even though a lot of people tend to hate her. For me…she will be missed.”

    Hear it enough times, and it really begins to make perfect sense, in a Manchurian Candidate kind of way. [Vulture, photo via Getty]


    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Maybe Jill feels all boards should be like the bravo bs board….pretty transparent and pretty much a garden of planted weeds.

    • error404 says:


      A. ok, what rock am I living under. I have no idea what the Dilbert controversy is. LOL

      B. Porr Jill, she is like one compound and a few packets of kool-aid away from some kind of Waco-Jonestown debacle. Girlfriend has lost the plot. Her only private love blog, blog by personal invite only, her own ustream for members only. Would the feds really send tanks to an UES highrise?

    • NYCer says:

      I saw that too and I want to give Gawker an award for best title ever:

      Jill Zarin Superfans Are Probably Just Jill Zarin

      🙂 so funny/true

    • jeepers1941 says:

      in my travels through cyberspace, Gingerett3 is tied to jill zarin, can’t remember where I saw it, but I know I saw it.

    • nathania says:

      oh my lord…

      I wonder what Lou Ann is going to think about this, being that Jill is asking for the removal of everyone but KELLY!!!

      That is hysterical. Lou Ann is so permanently lodged up Jill’s butt half the time that she doesn’t even need to use hair dye to cover her gray…

      that one must really sting.

      Yeah the thing about Scott Adams was really upsetting. Dilbert is my favorite cartoon, i have both this desk and my filing cabinet covered in dilbert/wally/dogbert magnets…it’s the only cartoon I read. I have read his books and he is truly a brilliant mind. He is a typical libertarian and some of those beliefs don’t read well when expressed honestly.

  184. vilzvet says:

    Well, that was quite a blast-off for the new season! Just rewatched it again to catch things better the second time around. Sorry, that is NOT your normal Italian family, I have one and we are all incredibly close, my first cousins are some of my best friends, my siblings too. We hang out together on a weekly basis! (We also have never a big fancy christening like that but that’s another story, more like the local Knights of Columbus!)
    I quickly noticed that with all the denying of any financial troubles last year, right away Teresa admits that last year was tough for then financially. Ah, the truth comes out! Thanks for admitting that, T! We knew it all along!
    Melissa gave a lot of clues in her TH’s, that they pay their bills, etc. Lots of little digs came out of her mouth. Her sisters are definitely potstirrers! One sister Kim’s husband was the guy at the table who said that Joe “owes him money” which rings very true. Kim also began tweeting and now I know why, because she was featured heavily last night along with the other sister. They are going to milk this for all it’s worth.
    I wonder if the camera guys were going to let Audriana tumble down the stairs if the makeup guy wasn’t there!? No baby gates was not a surprise. I felt terrible for Gia at the christening, seeing her pain. The brother has a lot of issues with his dad, and calling his mother “cold” was also revealing. I like Kathy so far, and her family. Good addition.
    The Bravo blogs will be VERY interesting, going to check now to see if they’re up…

  185. vilzvet says:

    All the Bravo blogs are up EXCEPT Teresa’s. Going to read them now…

  186. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    You know, in a way I understand Joe Gorga’s being upset with Teresa not being @ the christening until the very end. We know from other seasons that it is not unheard of for Teresa to be hours late to an event. This is her norm. I’m sure she’s lucky that she got there as early, for Teresa, as she did and only because the cameras were on her the whole time so at least she knew she had somewhere important to go.

    For her brother Joe, this may have been the straw that broke the camels back. Do I agree with the drinking and fighting? No, but I can kind of understand. There is a lot of bad history between the Joe’s and their wives. I think we are finally seeing the accumulation of all this bad blood starting in this season. Gonna be a doozy.

  187. Kelly Anne says:

    I could not believe my ears when listening to Ashley last night. “The whole process is so annoying-having to get up, take the train!”

    When I was 23 in the 90’s I had to get up at 5, take two trains and a subway into the NYC, and walk the rest of the way. I got an apartment FIVE YEARS LATER after saving up.

    Does Ashley live in some parallel universe??

    • alicia says:

      Yes, she does. I can’t wait to listen to this byatch whine when she gets pregnant about how hard pregnancy is. You can’t drink, you get fat, the baby cries, you can’t go anywhere. Whine, whine, whine…..

    • nathania says:

      this is probably a terrible thing to say…

      but Ashley is not cut out for it. She should just become a cocktail waitress or a stripper. Stay in jersey and rent a one bedroom apartment. Poor kid, she’s got a hard road ahead of her.

  188. jen says:

    This was dysfunctional and sick. No one is a bigger Housewife fan than I, but I have to give up on NJ. That christening was too much! The kids crying, the old father with his heart so obviously broken, and giving so much air time to clearly mentally dysfunctional people.Ugh! That definetly was not entertaining to me.

  189. rhwaddict says:

    I love this blog, Im notthe only crazy obsessed HW fanatic 🙂 …sorry if this is off topic but wasn’t sure where to post…..do you or anyone else reading have any idea what happened between dina and Caroline Manzo??? When she left the show they seemed to be on great terms and now it appears (via twitter, etc….lol) that they don’t speak, but I have not been able to find any press about this at all….did I miss something?? I cant be the only one to pick up on this. thanks!! xo
