‘TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY. It’s Christmas time for “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” At the Giudice home it’s time to decorate. The girls aren’t interested in helping. Shocking! Teresa says that it is nice staying at home for once and being out of the public eye. If being out of the public eye is being on a reality show then Ohkaaaayyyy. She tells us, “They are trying to stay normal. They are normal.” Yes, normal people commit 40+ Federal crimes to live a lifestyle that they can’t afford. Have a Holly Jolly Christmas!

Over at the Gorga’sJoe is dragging out all of the decorations. Oh look its giant poinsettias. Those are the ugliest things I’ve ever seen. Throw them on the fire and roast s’mores over those things. The Gorga’s say they are “shacking it up in a rental house.” It is SO not the mansion they were living in before. Oh the horror. But Melissa says “It’s not that bad.”

At Tuh-ressa and Nicole’s parent’s home, the whole family is there to help decorate. Mom’s name is Santa. That’s right. Santa. But not as in Claus. As in Son-ta. Dad’s name is Sal. Tuh-ressa is gushing about her son Giovanni. She says he could go anywhere in the world for schooling. He wants to take after his father and go into the restaurant business but doesn’t want to go to college. She thinks no one can teach him the biz better than Rino because he’s the best. Sal gives a very long toast about tradition. Cue Vicki from RHOC to start snoring. He didn’t want to talk anymore, he needs a cigarette.

RHONJ

Over at Amber’s, she is barking orders at the kids trying to put together a Gingerbread house. She used to think kids were disgusting beings with their snot and throw up. Now she enjoys it and she takes her job as a parent seriously. Everything needs to be perfect and controlled. Camera cuts to the kids hyped up on sugar. Control THAT Amber!

RHONJ

Dina is hoping for a lot of divorce therapy sessions and Percocet this Christmas. They are having an outdoor tree because one of the ugly animals inside knocks it over. Lexi is getting ready for college. Dina’s mom and sister Fran are there too.

Joe Giudice needs a drink after setting up decorations. Teresa tells him that people were talking about her at the Harvest party. He tells her they “Will prove ourselves not guilty, they can have any opinion they want, we know who we are. We have four great kids.” He tears up. She wants it all to be resolved soon. It’s hanging over them. And it will for a long time, unfortunately. They cheer to the haters and the ones who love them.

RHONJ

Nicole and Dina are meeting for a meal. Nicole says Dina is strong and they have a lot in common. Then she talks about how popular kale is these days. Dina checks her teeth with the knife. She tells Nicole that she hasn’t dated in 20 years. Nicole left her husband 4 years ago and felt empowered. Dina wants a companion now that her daughter is leaving for college. It’s scary for her. Dina never pictured her life at 40 starting over. Nicole was devastated at her divorce. She doesn’t have exact details of what happened but in her heart and soul she knew it was over. From the looks of the previews, we will see what was rumored to have happened. She moved back in with her parents to rebuild her life.

RHONJ

They talk about Amber’s party. Dina says Amber is sweet. Nicole says there was a lot of tension over who they invited. They talk about how precious her children are. Nicole says they call her auntie so she can’t say too much about one incident then she says Amber is OCD. I think I’ve got your number Nicole. Dina saysAmber Alert.”  They chuckle.

Speaking of Amber they are having a fire drill at their house. She has heard of all kinds of stories about fires at Christmas due to lights and Christmas trees. She thinks about the worst case scenarios and how to prepare for them. She and her husband blow a horn and time how long it takes the kids to get out of the house. Hey nothing says Merry Christmas like a good old fire drill. Next they move to the fire ladder hanging from one of the second story windows. Amber’s husband tells her she can jump in the hot tub if you need to. They talk to the kids about what they did right and wrong during the drill. What they did wrong during the drill would have caused them to be burned and fried. Okay, who wants egg nog?

RHONJ

Gorga’s are looking at the lot where Joe will be building their new home. It will be a lot like their old house but a little more LA chic, Melissa says. She doesn’t know what that means exactly but that is what she is telling everyone. Teresa calls Joe. She and Dina are in the neighborhood. He invites her over to see the property. While they are waiting, Melissa tells Joe that she feels like he should pee on the property. Oh those girls in Beverly Hills would have a field day with this. They got upset over a small child peeing on the ground. Teresa and Dina pull up. Joe shows Teresa the plans for the house. In her TH, Teresa says, since Joe married Melissa they have lived in a lot of houses. Her kids don’t want to move. Moving is Gorga thing.

RHONJ

Joe asks Tre how she is doing. She says they are taking things day by day. She was at Costco and a stranger came up to her and told her that she was praying for her and that she has a lot of love and support. Joe offers his support to her and says he doesn’t know what to say. Teresa says that the lawyers are handling it. She tells us that it was nice he asked. It’s actually nice to see them getting along.

RHONJ

She says Gia is the only one of the kids who knows what’s going on. She says no one’s life is perfect and that you go through stuff and you come back stronger. She also said “I’m not in denial. I’m not stupid. I know what’s going on but I’m not going to deteriorate because she wants to teach the girls how to be strong.Joe wants to hug her but not get emotional so he fist pumps her instead. Teresa screeches she isn’t a dude.

Antonio, Tuh-ressa’s kitchen designer comes over. They are starting a new restaurant. Rino knows his way around the kitchen but she knows her way around fabrics and decor. Antonio likes tablecloths because there is a lot that goes on under them that other people don’t want to see.“We dance great together,” Tuh-ressa says about her relationship with her, ehm, designer. The restaurant should be a sexy place.

RHONJ

Rino and Giovanni go to their restaurant, “Angelo’s.” Rino talks to him about the business and it starts in the kitchen. Tuh-ressa AGAIN tells us how much Giovanni loves the restaurant business. At this point I’m thinking it’s more the parents dream and less his dream. While teaching him how to make pasta, he compares it “like a woman the heat comes from underneath.” There was more of that talk but I lost any interest and hoped someone called the health department. God only knows what goes on in that kitchen. Just saying.

RHONJ

Melissa and Joe meet Rosie, Kathy and Rich at a restaurant. They are waiting for Teresa and Joe for a cousin Christmas dinner. Kathy asks if they’ve seen Teresa. Melissa tells them they have and that “She’s staying positive.” Rosie says you have to stay positive in a situation like that because otherwise you crumble. Rich asks Joe if he is staying positive too. He says yeah. Kathy says in her TH, she was in Italy when the news broke about Joe and Teresa. She called, no text, Tre right away.

wap-real-housewives-of-new-jersey-season-6-rosie-and-kathy-are-back

They arrive and everyone is all kissy kissy. Rosie says she can’t help but think of the children. She prays everything works out. Joe Giudice tells Gorga they have a good team. Melissa wants Tre to let her in more and how she wished Teresa knew how much she wanted to be there for her.

RHONJ

Time to open gag gifts. Joe Gorga gets a fruit cake. Rosie says it’s from one fruit to another. Kathy gets, well, I’m not sure what she got. I think it was a Horny vibrator??? Whatever it was, it was funny.  Teresa gets a dictionary. “You need that!” Melissa screams. Teresa gives her a look and says she is Italian and proud of it. She’ll give it to her kids. Melissa makes a toast. She is happy they are all together. And it was nice to see them all together as a family enjoying themselves. Its a few years too late though I’m afraid.

RHONJ

Rino and Tuh-ressa are hosting family dinner. They are having lobster tails and steak. Rino is again talking about Giovanni getting into the business. Seriously enough with this kid and getting into the business. He says you can’t just be a star. You have to know how to cook. Sal gives a prayer that talks about; yes you guessed it, tradition. Nicole tells the table she had to get off the phone with boyfriend, Bobby, last night because mommy kept yelling. Santa says no, she wasn’t yelling. They talk about Nicole moving out. Nicole isn’t ready to move out of her parents’ home. Santa says she isn’t ready for her to go but will deal with the separation anxiety and get a bout of IBS when the time goes. Nicole doesn’t like change. She isn’t going to move in with Bobby because “why buy the milk when you can get the calf for free.” Or is it “Why buy the calf when you can get the milk for free?” I don’t know. In any event, she won’t be moving in with him until they are married.

RHONJ

It’s Christmas day at Giudice’s. Unlike last season, Joe is actually up and participating. Teresa tells the girls to open one present at a time so everyone can see your presents. Chaos erupts as they all tear into the gifts. There were princesses, easy bake ovens, barbies, clothes and toy puppies. They wanted a real one. Suddenly and right on cue, they hear a dog barking. They run into the other room and find a real puppy by fireplace. What should they name it? Sophia? Bianca? Fluffy?

Nicole’s making mimosas. December is an emotional month for her. She shares custody with her ex. He gets the kids on Christmas day. Bobby (BF) comes over it’s their 1st Christmas together. He gives her a present. It’s a wine bottle holder shaped like a shoe. Santa says she saw one like that at the pharmacy. He looks defeated. Nicole says what a man gives at Christmas is very telling. It is indeed. Adios Bobby.

RHONJ

At Melissa’s she is trying to get Antonia to drink hot cocoa. She doesn’t like it she wants orange juice. She asks Joe if the snow will affect building their house.  He says no as long as weather is 35 degrees and above. He complained he needed a hearing to get permits. He tells us that the rental isn’t what she is accustomed to. Mel hates new house. It’s so small she has to keep shoes in kitchen cabinet. They all go outside to go sledding. She runs to stick her tongue on a pole. She tells us “Contrary to popular belief she is not the master of the pole.”

RHONJ

Teresa and Joe go to say goodnight to their four beautiful daughters. They are all sleeping together with the puppy which Milania has and won’t let go of. They scold the girls to not fight that the most important thing is right there. Joe Giudice is lighting a fire. He gives Tre a card. In it he writes “I can’t imagine a life, a home or a Christmas without you,” she cries. He wishes they didn’t have “those little issues.” Little issues? They need to keep fighting the charges and making money. He is happy she is strong as she is and not crying all of the time. He wouldn’t even want to come home if she were that way. He says that worst case, if for whatever reason he has to go say wherever, say vacation, say college; he thinks about his girls and who will take care of them. She needs him, they need him around always and they can’t function without him. Shouldn’t they have thought about all of this when they were forging documents. To end the episode, Teresa says, despite what people say, this will not be their last Christmas together.

About the Author

I began writing about people that put themselves on Reality Television 3 years ago after my son was in a car accident. I needed something to do when I became his primary caregiver. I started "Reality TV Morons" Facebook on where I gathered over 2000 followers. I've done interviews with people like Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Catherine Ommanney, Peggy Tannous and Rob Shuter. I am a Medical Assistant recently taking a leave from my job after losing my mother 2 months ago & 21-year old nephew 3 weeks ago. I'm taking time to reevaluate where I want to be and am looking forward to once again writing about Reality Television especially any of the Real Housewives Franchises.

  • cait

    Thanks Lu ! So everyone is being super nice to each other, sipping tea and talking about their kids’ education ! I WARNED YOU ALL ABOUT THIS ! Joe thinks they’ll be found not guilty ! Sorry, pet, you’ve already pled guilty !

    • Hey Cait. Delusions of grandeur with this family.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Morning babycakes…
        I almost threw up …it was boring….because they are being hella fake…

        • Mortiiiing sunshine! 🙂

          Last night’s episode seemed more like a filler episode. The only interesting parts were with the new women, Nicole and her sister, TUUUR-ESSA. I love their family bonding scene. Love their dad, Sal. Rhino throws down in the kitchen.

  • TartLemon

    I thought the set up scene of Christmas morning at Teresa’s was ridiculous. She did not want us to see the gauche opulence, so the kids were carefully set up and filmed making it about the dog. Cute little thing. No photos of the REAL Christmas morning.

    • Hi Tart. I was so thinking the same thing. Easy bake ovens my ass. The real gifts were either opened already or waiting in the garage.

      • TartLemon

        It was just so staged. Way after Christmas. None of the ungrateful spoiled brats even said anything like “Is this all? I want better stuff!” Also, no packaging or paper around from already opened stuff.

        • I’m sure it was a Wendy Feldman intervention. And stern warning for her not to repeat what she did last year. Andy Cohen questioned her last year about the expensive X-mas despite owing creditors millions.

        • RonnieIsBack

          Y0ou know it was staged…they probably hid the real gifts and opened them off camera…

      • Pinky Pie

        Also,why give them stuffed animal dogs, when they wanted a real one? To make them cry more than they already have? Nice loving parents.

  • TartLemon

    I read a post somewhere about a ‘forfeiture proceeding’ after the sentencing. The poster did not go into detail. What is that?

    • In simple terms, it’s a legal procedure used by authorities (IRS, Feds, State) to confiscate a designated possession (house, car, boats, diamonds, etc) from the convicted criminal.

      • TartLemon

        Thanks.

      • Pinky Pie

        While I don’t really want to see anyone homeless, that house wasn’t theirs to begin with. It was attained through scamming and conning. So, they won’t really lose their house. They will just have to move out of the one they conned so many people to live in. But, honestly, I don’t believe any of this will happen. The Giudice’s are slippery. They will delay this or con someone in order to show us all we are wrong. Here’s to the haters? What kind of a stupid comment was that for Joe to make? It was Christmas, and that was his toast. Not here’s to us, here’s to our adorable daughters. Here’s to our free puppy. Anything more positive to say on Christmas? Nice of him to think of us?

        • Hi Pinkie Pie…..I couldn’t have stated it better. You are so on point here. They really aren’t losing anything that didn’t belong to them in the first place. The toast to the haters, shows they think people are hating on them that’s why they’re in that position. Both clearly blame “the haters” for their predicament. They’re pathetic!

  • cait

    The only bitch-hitch was the dictionary gift ! Brill ! The real Melhissa is still in there somewhere !

  • RonnieIsBack

    I love the shade of it all with Melissa and Tre..still brewing undercover but they have been warned to play nice and you can tell heheheheh….the dictionary gift and Teresa’s face afterwards…priceless..I wish they said who actually gave it to her…and her sly remark about moving a bunch now that Melissa and Joey are married…she needs to just stop.
    I was just glad Juicy finally said “we are in trouble” basically…Teresa still acts like she isn’t giong anywhere or was chrged…and is appears that next week her attorney will insinuate the same..bullchit.
    I am loving the twins…Nicole is my gurl..for now….I agree why buy the damn cow…basically when you live with a person you share all the duties, the bills, cooking, his attitude because men become asses when they have a built in slave…youdo the laundry and run the house..with or without money..hell enjoy your freedom as long as you can…she was married before so she knows how it goes down….you can be with your boo, travel with him, etc. but still when you want to go home, I say go to your own damn santuary…and don’t give him a key either lolz.
    Gonzo and Gonzo, Jr. (Dina and daughter)….snoring…..

    Why they were torchering that steak with Grey Goose…

    Amber is OCD…

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Juicy Joe looked truly sad and concerned. Why is that snorefest Dina back? Why is this show even on? Boring. And yes, Amber has major OCD.

    • MorningYawn

      Kathy said on WWHL that she put in the dictionary – she said “Bravo did a whole segment on how the NJ wives butcher the Engilsh language, I thought it was funny!”

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        I secretly don’t believe that it was Kathy who put the dictionary in…I think it was Andy who did that.

        • MorningYawn

          Hahaha! That would be hilarious. In a bag with make-up wipes and spray tan remover (if such a thing existed)!

          • cait

            Of course she’ll get spray tan remover ! It’s called PRISON !

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Melissa’s ‘LA Chic’ dream house will be the next Chateau Sheree. The new girls are so boring. They should have just brought on Milania as the fourth housewife.

    • Pinky Pie

      I’ll bet that. The son learning the restaurant business, instead of going to college, couldn’t get into college. Further, learning the business from the bottom up? Wouldn’t that mean he had to bus tables, mop floors, do dishes, and wait tables? Instead we see him learning to cook a few dishes. I think that restaurant family is going to take the lead trash role on the show. They seem sleazy.

      • They’re actually a good family who earned their money honestly. They have been in the restaurant business for many years.

        • Birdie11

          There are plenty of honest hard working people who have a trashy sleaze factor…that father gives me the creeps.

          • I don’t get that “sleazy” from them….I get a “Jersey Shore” years later affect. I like the dad, Sal.

  • Fantastic recap, Reality Lulu.

    • TartLemon

      Teresa’s looking like she’s been hitting the bottle pretty hard. That heavy makeup doesn’t do any favors, either.

      • twifan2

        Waiting for her kabuki mask make-up! 😀

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          I have a student with Kabuki Syndrome. He’s a cutie pie!

          • twifan2

            🙂
            Anybody else but Tre would be a cutie pie!

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            ON POINT!

      • Birdie11

        I mistake her for a wax figure until she opens her mouth.

        • twifan2

          Then she becomes a dummy! ;D

          • Birdie11

            Yes…a loud and nasally one. 😀

          • twifan2

            🙂
            Hi Hi Birdie! 🙂
            Let the dummy beware! ;D

          • Birdie11

            Happy Monday Twi! 🙂

          • twifan2

            It would have been a better Monday, if I hadn’t tried to watch last nite episode this morning. 🙁
            *need more sprinkle cookies*

          • Birdie11

            It is quite a unique experience watching a show and being absorbed with such utter disgust from beginning to end.

          • twifan2

            Nope, couldn’t do it. I turned it off & watched some True Blood instead! 🙂

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            She ain’t no high dollar mannikin.

    • Reality LuLu

      Thanks Doc!! I agree that the stress has definitely taken a toll on her.

  • TartLemon

    I laughed HARD at the dictionary thing. Remember way back in Season 1 when Teresa was taking Gia to auditions? The acting coach had Gia read some lines and tried to correct her heavy NJ accent. Gia said ‘My Mother told me to NEVER change it.’ The audition was cut very short.

  • cait

    Just think, Gia can play Mother Tree in the film version !

    • twifan2

      There’s a Razzie in her future! 🙂

  • twifan2

    OMG! This was one bull crap episode!
    Is this how the rest of the season is going be like?
    Thank heaven for True Blood! 🙂

  • Tre’s Felon Forehead

    Good morning! This was an extremely boring episode. I am really anxious to see if ratings increased any from the dismal premier episode.

    • twifan2

      Morning TFF! 🙂
      I just perused it & I almost lost my coffee! TOO much crap! Ppl are so sorry for what the Jucys may be facing? WTH! What about the ppl they stole from!!!!

  • italiano bambino

    Talking about Oc thanks cait. Is it Just me or OC is better when it comes to drama n newbies instead of NJ how the helll did it happen?

          • Reality LuLu

            Ha Ha. He said every word except Prison. —Vacation. College. Away.

          • twifan2

            I think it sticks in his gut. ت

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            I’d say something else is sticking in his “gut” as well, ay. By the looks of that pudge action.

          • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

            Oh, DO let Teresa Grad–jeeee-aite to her own personal tiny overly USED cell, come September.
            Is that being mean???
            Oh well….

          • twifan2

            Nope, not all ‘mean’! 🙂

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      Yep, Cait’s suggestion about a Yetchy Gumballwitch TH snore scene would be so PERFECT!
      Sorry West. But, West I wasn’t as caustic…right?

  • Jennymckitty

    Please tell me that the entire season isn’t going to be about the Guidice’s legal problems. This has turned into some twisted infomercial trying to illicit sympathy for the Guidices with a few twisted PSAs from paranoid Amber thrown in for good measure. I’ll take boring any day of the week over this crap.

    • WestCoastFeed

      If the rest of the season is just going to show this over and over until they finally enter the guilty plea. ratings are going to be in the dumpster.

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        I say, let the ratings hit rock bottom.

        • Reality LuLu

          Agreed

    • TartLemon

      It’s certainly backfired BIG time if they actually thought this would make the public more sympathetic. Even TreHuggers are rapidly dwindling.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Are there no prisons? Are there no workhouses?

    • WestCoastFeed

      Sorry, that episode turned me into Ebeneezer Scrooge.

  • Missy Michelle

    This is all scripted to influence the Judge…period! Manipulation at it’s full glory! Along with Fakedra, those two are textbook sociopaths in my opinion.
    If the Judge falls for this then she is gullible and naive and needs to be transfered to Traffic Court.
    I being the Judge, I’d be livid that this bitch is trying to influence myself and the court……I’d hit her with the full time her crimes call for!!!!!
    She’s not the only one who has children…..for that matter, open the prison doors and let every parent out! Gimme a Break! Smdh

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      Yeah…from your head and fingers to the judges head and mouth…send Teresa without the wig to the Pen.

  • cait

    Don’t forget that this Judge is iffy !

    • Missy Michelle

      Cait, that’s what worries me….this particular Judge!

  • Birdie11

    The sense of ME, ME, ME on this show is DISGUSTING. A perfectly nice house isn’t good enough, even temporarily, for Melissa. Toys that lots of kids can only wish for, aren’t good enough for the Guidice girls, Lexi is going to go thru a greater adjustment than ANY other girl leaving for college, because she and Dina are closer than ANY other mother and daughter in the world. It all makes me SICK!!!

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      Butt…they are all “celebrities”…right?

      • Birdie11

        All the housewives are like this to a degree…but the whining and complaining on this show is the worst…UGH!!

    • Pinky Pie

      U forgot to add Dina, with the closest of any mother-daughter relationship, in the world, could have made the best Christmas EVER for her very special daughter. (You know, the Great Christmas Dina never had) but instead chose to demonstrate just how truly miserable Christmas can be. I don’t think Dina has a maternal bone in her body. I bet her daughter cannot wait to get away from her.

      • Birdie11

        Dina was the one who bugged me the most!!! UGHHHH….run like the wind Lexi!!

        • Dina is soooooooo dang boring. Like what is her purpose on the show?

          • Birdie11

            I could honestly relate to Ramona letting go of Avery..she described the experience perfectly…when Dina said that Lexi’s adjustment would be more challenging because of their closeness I wanted to punch her in the face.

          • Her character is disingenuous so it didn’t ring as truth.

          • cait

            Do you live near enough ! We’ll all give you an alibi ! You were here in the UK with me, you were dining with Doc, Having a close encounter with Tre P

          • Birdie11

            Love this Cait!! I am IN!!

        I think Dina and Lexi have a great relationship.

    • Giiiiirl….I was just telling someone else that. Imo, the Gorga’s are on their way to poor house if they don’t watch their spending.

      • Birdie11

        That house is SO beneath her…you could tell she was driving Joe up the wall. Even Antonia was calling it a disgusting little house…they should be ashamed.

        • The real owners must be embarrased and having regrets. It’s a shame the lessons their teaching their kids.

        • Marsbars09

          Birdie, I just posted a comment about Antonia’s snotty remark.

          • Birdie11

            I know…I see! We think alike Marsie… Hope you’re having a fun nite!

    • Marsbars09

      Hi birdie! What do you think of little Antonia’s snobby comment about the “little” rental house the Gorgas’ now reside in? You know she got that from either Melissa or Tre.

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I’m going to start a personal tradition for myself. When I come on the scene I’m going to send a big hug to our Sweet Friend – NAWS.
    Morning or Afternoon NAWS!
    Been thinking about you Girl. Sending a Hug your way because I/we miss YOU.
    ((((((HUGS)))))))
    If you were able to watch the show, I hope it didn’t put you on the snooze train.
    Wasn’t RLuLu’s recap Fabulous! She does such a great Job.
    Later NAWS…LOVE YOU!

    • Reality LuLu

      Thank you Tre’s. Where is Naws? Is she okay?

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        From what the girls are saying, NAWS’s RA (arthritis) has been kickin’ her ass. Damn that RA!
        It just ain’t right….
        But NAWS is one of OUR Special SweetHeart’s.
        *wipes a tear away,’cuz I miss her*

        • Reality LuLu

    Hello everyone. Thank you for reading my recap. I don’t know about youse guys but last nights episode was well worthy of Vicki Gunvalson’s SNORE. How are you all doing today?

    • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

      • Reality LuLu

        Thanks sweetie!! I truly appreciate that.

    • italiano bambino

      Great recap lulu

    • Loves your recap! It was better than the snoozefest of a show, last night.

      • twifan2

        More like a gag-fest. smh

  • WestCoastFeed

    Teresa was probably right. That was not their last Christmas together. They’ll be sentenced on September 23rd, and then probably allowed one more Christmas together before they have to turn themselves in to the penitentiary.

    Will Bravo begin filming another season so then can capture the scene showing leaving their girls?

  • Chauncy
    • Reality LuLu

      Thank you Chauncy.

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    I’m off to hit the shower and wash the mop.
    I gotza go do some Trader Joe (TJ’s) shoppin’.
    LOVE YOUSE!

    • Reality LuLu

      Have fun Tre’s. Hope we see you back later!! <3

    • twifan2

      ENJOY! 🙂
      Bring us something! 😀

  • cait

    Today is so pleasant ‘cos we got to some dark places yesterday ! We’re better than that, Guys !

  • WestCoastFeed

    ROL is now claiming that Bravo is seriously considering firing Teresa. Here’s an excerpt:

    Bravo bosses are starting to think thatTeresa just isn’t worth keeping around if her diva behavior continues,” an insider revealed. “The network is very sensitive to the fact that she is facing alooming prison sentence, and has tried to work with her during this difficult time. But Teresa has cut back substantially on media appearances to promote the show, and has been acting like a diva, as the New York Post story last week revealed. From being unhappy with the choice of alcohol, and the dress she wore, Teresa complained the entire time.”

    • Jennymckitty

      She was supposed to be sentenced by now. Bravo had no idea that she would be available past July 9 until the beginning of the month. I feel that they are experiencing buyers remorse. They thought the world would want to watch them as they awaited trial only to have them plead guilty. And the shows dismal ratings are only rubbing salt into the wounds. The show isn’t failing because Tre isn’t promoting it. Most people would rather not see felons being paid $250’000 to be on a reality show.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I have never understood just why Bravo thought that viewers would want to see footage taken of them months ago, when the real time news and the social media show us what their lives are like in actuality.

        • twifan2

          I think Bravo had us intelligent viewers confuddled with her stans-imo.
          Guess the ratings are showing Bravo, we’re too intelligent to continue watching that crap.

        • It’s stupid and the concept doesn’t work, especially Christmas in July.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Miss Jenny! I also think Bravo dropped the ball by not airing the show sooner. I think July was quite late to start season 6.

    • Marsbars09

      Bravo may not have to worry about nothing if Tre is incarcerated.

  • cait

    Sadly, if she goes, none of the others are worth watching, anyway !

  • Jennymckitty

    Seeing the maltipoo by that horribly tacky dog bed with the bags from Pawlicious artfully placed on either side, I had two thoughts….that scene was staged and production was acting as a dog wrangler. And did Pawlicious give them the dog and /or accessories for free publicity.

    • Birdie11

      Jenny! All I could think was OMG even the dog has a gaudy mcmansion!

      • Jennymckitty

        That was pretty tacky.

      • cait

        If Demonia is claiming the dog, it’s gonna have a WUFF life !

  • WestCoastFeed

    The NJ Star Ledger is reporting that Teresa will be holding a meet and greet at the Revel in Atlantic City on August 16th. Somehow she is still able to get firms to sponsor her. SMH

    • twifan2

      Maybe they using her as a Tax Loss? :/

    • cait

      Meet and greet ! If Andy turns up it will be a Meet and Fuck Off ! ( or for you posh guys ” Fack Off ” )

  • Marsbars09

    Mel really showed her true colors this episode. She admitted she lied about why she wanted to move to Franklin Lakes, she admitted the rental wasn’t to her liking (snob), and she doesn’t know what LA chic is (dumber than a rock).
    I think the lunch scene between Dina and the twin was completely staged. Dina barely paid attention to what the newbie said.

  • Marsbars09

    Did anyone think it was strange that Dina’s mother and two of her sisters appeared on the show last night? I was especially surprised to see Fran there since she once lived or is living with Dina.
    Does anyone think having the family film like that was a message to Caro & Jac?

    • WestCoastFeed

      I liked that Frannie showed she was not choosing sides in the family feud by filming with Dina. You are thinking of the other sister, Cookie. She’s the one who used to live with or still lives with Dina.

      • Marsbars09

        No, remember last season Frannie lived with Caro. She’s the one that had the pet pig.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Yes, Frannie lived with and still lives with Caroline. Cookie lives with Dina. You misunderstood my comment.

          • Marsbars09

            I didn’t know Cookie lived with Dina. I can’t believe Tommy is allowing that if Dina is still living under his roof.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I just noticed that I made that present tense. I don’t know whether Cookie still lives with Dina. She did at one time.

        • It raised an eyebrow with me because I was under the impression she didn’t get along with any of her siblings. Dina was trying to prove something by filming with Fran.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Dina and Caroline have both said the same thing, that they get along with all but 2 siblings. In Caroline’s case, she means all but Dina and Joseph. In Dina’s case, she means all but Caroline and Chris.

          • I read something that Dina and Chris both didn’t speak to a lot of their siblings for years. Is that true?

          • WestCoastFeed

            Not that I know of. Lolag is the only person that I know of who might know the answer to that one.

          • I miss Lolag. I also read that both Dina and Chris didn’t speak to a particular male sibling until he was sick and dying?

          • twifan2

            That’s just sad & petty! :/

          • If true, very sad. I can see Dina doing that but not Chris. He’s not petty like Dina.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I don’t know of any sibling that has died. However Joseph Laurita had a son named Frankie who died young and died suddenly. I believe that neither Caroline nor Dina was mentioned in his obituary. I don’t know the cause of death, but I suspect that has something to do with the siblings not communicating.

          • That’s awful. What I read was the sibling was “sick and dying” not dead. So I suspect Joseph Laurita is the sibling in question. I don’t understand how their mother allows this stuff to carry on.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Nettie favors Dina who is the baby in the family.

          • cait

            With my kids I favour the one who’s sick till he’s well again, and the one who’s away till he’s home !

          • Playing favorites among siblings is bad. And as a result, we see the fallout. Chris and Caroline are my favorites.

          • Marsbars09

            I like Jamie and Frannie. They both seem real nice.

          • Me too. They look like fun ladies.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Oops, posted to Mars when I should have posted to you, Jaime is the gay brother from Chicago. The two sisters with Dina were Frannie and Cookie.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Jaime is the gay brother who lives in Chicago.

          • Marsbars09

            I was never sure who Dina did or didn’t get along with.

          • Marsbars09

            I agree, but I wonder what she was trying to prove (?).

          • WestCoastFeed

            I think she was just trying to prove that she gets along with her. And good fro Frannie; she hasn’t taken sides.

          • I got the impression, she was trying to show she gets along well with her other siblings and Caroline is at fault for their rift not her.

  • Marsbars09

    Joe looked and sounded real stupid last night trying to explain to Tre that they were going on vacation or college instead of using the term prison. It was like Joe was talking to Tre like he was one of his daughters.

    • cait

      Of course he’s going to PENNitentary !

      • cait

        Or he could go on vac to Costa Rikers !

        • Marsbars09

          Great comments, Cait!

  • cait

    Look girls, I know Daddy’s been at college for over 10 years, but he is as thick as pig shit !

      • And a vacation too. LOL!

        • Izzy

          Hi Seuss!! WTF is the deal wid dese twos criminals not being able to use the words jail or prison? perhaps they should put that dictionary that Treape received as a gift to use!

          • cait

            She don’t need it SHE’s EETALYUUN !

          • Missy Michelle

            Then she should stomp on grapes!

          • Hey boo! 🙂

            DENIAL…that’s the issue. Those words “jail” and “prison” would mean their criminals like the ones in prison who use “used” toilets and walk on dirty floors. That’s not them. They are above that.

      • Izzy

        Hi Twi!! Love it!

      • Missy Michelle

        Bahahaha….Tre makes Mr. Brown sound like he majored in english!!

    I got to give a shout out to my girls Marsie and Ronnie whom I always seem to miss!

    • cait

      Are you on a meet and greet, Izzy ? What wine they give you at yours ? Maronizzyelli ? You 3 could go into business with this brand ! I’m jealous !

      Hi Izzy! I’m so sorry I missed you yesterday and today. I lamented to Doc how much I miss you.
      I hope things are going well for you.

    • Jennymckitty

      Crap, Izzy. I’ve been missing you! Hope we can be on at the same time. Good to “see” you. Hope you are well.

  • Notice all the Teresa product placement in the last pic. Fabellini and her sprinkle cookies. RHONJ has turned into an infomercial. Have you credit cards on standby while watching an episode. Arg!

    • twifan2

      Almost all the HW shows are Bravomercials now.

      • WestCoastFeed

        What has become of her dessert line? I don’t see it mentioned on her website or on the Jersey Meatball Co facebook. Will it just be gelato now?

        • It seems the gelato is the 1st product offering. Probably to test the market response.

          • twifan2

            It’s JAILLATO!
            It’s captivating! :p

          • italiano bambino

            LMFAO brilliant twi

          • WestCoastFeed

            What happened to those boxes of sprinkle cookies?

          • twifan2

            MY sprinkle cookies were up in arms about not being paid. Much lie her EX-chimps! >(

          • From what I’ve seen it’s been pulled from her product offerings. It’s no longer being offered on her website.

          • RonnieIsBack

            And it is so shady for her to try to do desserts knowing Kathy does them.

      • So tacky!

    • Jennymckitty

      I’m surprised they don’t have the “buy now” option worked into the cable system.

  • italiano bambino

    Nj lost there spark. Is just the 2 episode and I’m already meh. Bring danielle back and add kim G Now we’re talking fireworks bravo. Not this jersey shore twins rejects along with the crayAmber

    • Yep–I can’t wait to see the ratings.

      • italiano bambino

        Is a disaster seuss like idk how can it be a hit. OC has a better story then NJ and that’s saying alot

      • twifan2

        I’m kind of surprised the ratings aren’t out yet. :/

        • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

          If I remember correctly, the ratings from last week were reading out as 2.14 mil overall and 1.17 of that, between 18-49 years old. And on any site I’ve cruised over to, the folks are to the person, p.o.’d to see the banshee’s face on the tube.
          Does anybody think that the ratings are really going to be much better?

    • Norrth

      The twins, Doze-y Manzo, and Amber all act like they’re reading from a script. Doze-y thought the Pruno Princess would have more support than she has and miscalculated acting like the watchdog for her instead of making amends with her family.

  • Norrth

    Notice that expensive looking watch on Joe Giudice’s arm while he was holding Gia? I wonder if it was bought the money they “made” as part of the fraud? #priories #allaboutthechildren His daughter is crying her eyes out, but at least he has that watch. They really fooled everyone not giving the high end gifts they gave last week.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Norrth! I didn’t notice Joe’s watch. I’ll have to watch the repeat.

    • RonnieIsBack

      And we know they opened the real gifts on camera….they know damn well they did not give their kids easy bake ovens…

  • WestCoastFeed

    Did Kathy say something negative about Kim D or Posche last night. Look at this tweet from Kim D:

    Kim DePaola ‏@KimDPosche 22m

    Hello ms. @KathyWakile … Chances are you don’t shop at my store because I don’t sell anything in plus sizes. Eat that baby

    • OMG!! Kim D is still thirsty for fame…SMFH!

      All Kathy said is she doesn’t shop at Posche. What’s wrong with that? And Kathy is FAR from plus size.

      Kim. the old washed up crackhead needs to have a seat.

      • Marsbars09

        I think people are sore for being cut from RHNJ. I know Jac is not happy either.

        • WestCoastFeed

          Jac doesn’t sound the least bit unhappy about not being on NJ any more. In fact she sounds like she is very much looking forward to appearing on the spin off.

        • Jax seems happy to off that boring trash show.

          • Marsbars09

            I have my doubts from the way she jumped in the twitter argument between Dina and Ashley. Ashley is old enough to fight her own battles.

          • I hate how Jax gets emotional and jumps on Twitter. She’s better than that. But Dina does it too.

          • Marsbars09

            I’ve never known Miss Zen to get all “krump”.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Oh, Ho, Then you haven’t seen her mean tweet and then delete action.

          • Marsbars09

            WCF, did you mean Oh Oh, Oh No, or did you mean to call me a Ho? 😀

          • WestCoastFeed

            Funny, I meant Oh Oh. I’d never call you a name, Marsie.

          • Marsbars09

            I know you would never do anything to offend me. I’m just teasing you. 😉

          • RonnieIsBack

            LOLOLOLOLOL

          • She’s very crafty with her shade but she does tweet mean stuff too.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Yes. Jac over reacts on twitter. She was a mama cat defending her kitten.

      • Marsbars09

        Hi Doc. Please check your e-mail.

      • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

        I don’t like the woman. I don’t like looking at her, I don’t like hearing her voice, and her hair is so fried.
        I wouldn’t listen to anything she says OR writes at any time and about anybody.
        Yoh Kim D, take a long walk, on a short plank.
        Blech!

        • I take it you don’t like Kim D? hahaha!!

        • RonnieIsBack

          You should tell her Go Scratch.

      • Birdie11

        Kathy prefers to stay away from Whores R Us.

        • So in other words she has class 🙂

          • RonnieIsBack

            and taste.

    • Marsbars09

      Damn! Kim D. don’t take no prisoners when someone tries to shade her.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Dayum….Kim D (Mr. Burns) is nasssssty lol

  • Tre’s Pic’s aren’t Angelic

    Is anybody else wondering what Tre’s hair looks like under that wig?
    I sure wonder about it.

  • WestCoastFeed

    is this right? Ratings 760K? That bad?
    That’s from Sunday Cable Ratings.

    • No way? Are you serious? That’s not only good, downright horrible. Andy’s Hw’s are losing it’s charm. I’m very surprised.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Serious, and Sunday Cable ratings has the same figures.

        • Hmmm…I wonder if that’s an error then. The odds of having the same figures seem highly unlikely. How accurate are Simon’s figures?

          • WestCoastFeed

            I think he takes them from the same place they do. Sunday Cable ratings cites Nielsen as their source.

          • I don’t doubt the ratings are bad but the odds of having the same number is highly unlikely.

          • WestCoastFeed

            Not if they both are using the Nielsen ratings. In that case the numbers should be identical.

      • RonnieIsBack

        I believe it..in the beginning the shows were suppose to be about daily living of real housewives, interaction with their kids, etc. Now you have a bunch of celebr-wannabes hocking goods and mugshots….after a while it gets boring. I guess this is why I prefer Married to Medicine…it is funny, it has drama but most of the wives actually work and/or take care of their families also. We also see how they live their lives and they are not fronting…i.e. Toya and Biggie Smalls (Eugene) lost their money due to a bad business deal, Mariah’s man getting hair plugs, Dr. Simone having financial issues and thus marital issues, etc. they don’t suga coat chit…lol
