We begin this episode with Amber going to visit Melissa at her rented house. Despite their differences ever since reuniting a few months ago, Amber has learned that Melissa’s dear aunt passed a way from cancer. Amber feels especially connected because, well, she too had “the cancer.” Melissa says that she was very close to her aunt. She has talked to the boys about the loss in their family but they don’t understand. Antonia however does. Melissa thanks Amber again for coming over and bringing chicken soup.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Santa, Nicole and Tuh-ressa’s mom wants to know what Bobby’s intentions are towards her daughter, Nicole. They’ve been dating almost a year and if he is going to hang on to his bachelor status like he has for the past ten years, it’s time for Nicole to cut him loose and move it along. She isn’t getting any younger.

Melissa goes to visit Teresa on a Friday night. Joe has taken his four daughters on a date while Tre was sitting alone autographing her books because the bookstore wanted her too. They play around with one another laughing about drinking wine; have dim lighting and a fire in the fireplace while lying together on the couch. I’ll admit it was nice to see them like that. Teresa wants Melissa to watch The Godfather since she has never seen it. Teresa says it shows the true meaning of family except for the killing of course. She tells Melissa that once she watches it, she will understand where Teresa has been coming from all this time.

Nicole goes to her twin sister’s house. Tuh-ressa reiterates what their mother said about Bobby. As script fate would have it, Bobby sends her a photo of himself in his fireman outfit. Nicole decides to take some sexy photos and text them to Bobby. She wears one of Tuh-ressa’s red dresses and heels with a fire hat sitting next to the fire in the fireplace. Bobby texts her back right away after seeing the photos and says he will be right over. “That’s my first responder,” says Nicole.

Speaking of sexy photos, Melissa decides to pull a Yolanda Foster and take some to put in a book and give to Joe for Valentine’s Day. She hires a photographer and has her sisters over while she poses in different sexy outfits.

Over at Teresa and Joe’s house, he is sitting in his home office with piles of paperwork everywhere. Teresa walks in requesting they have a meeting. She has a small calendar and wants to put in dates of appearances which she made it sound like for her brand of things she is selling, but I think it was more for court appearances. Again, they talk about the good team they have. Teresa admits that her businesses are suffering because of their legal problems. Of course it doesn’t really have anything to do with HER but rather, that mean prosecutor who had the nerve to file charges against her and her honey! Milania comes in and starts’ scribbling in Teresa’s little calendar and then decides to paint papers with white-out. Meeting is adjourned!

Joe Gorga says he isn’t very good at verbally expressing his feelings. He feels bad that Melissa lost her aunt and wants to bring a smile to her and the kids. He gets out of his truck and zips up his coat. Once inside the kitchen he says he doesn’t feel so good. As he unzips his coat, he pulls out a cute little black puppy! Melissa is thrilled and sweet Antonia starts to tear up. Melissa is surprised that Joe picked out the puppy all by himself. They think about what to name him. Gino suggests they name it “Gino Smith.” Melissa jokes with Antonia that it is another boy in the house. Joe says he couldn’t stand to have another female.

It’s Valentine’s Day and poor Dina is stuffing herself with chocolates and lying under a red light to help her mood. Earlier she met with her divorce attorney and cried about the end of her marriage to Tommy and her child bearing years. She doesn’t want to do anything about the divorce until Lexi goes to college. So she decides to face time her 24-year old gay assistant who begins to cry after hearing Dina’s sob story.

Melissa and Joe are having a romantic dinner at a restaurant. They discuss all of the projects that Joe is involved in. Melissa is afraid that Joe will be missing these years with the kids because of his busy schedule. She tells us that once he took Joey to school and it wasn’t even the right school. He called her and asked her where the f*ck he went to school. After they eat, a waiter brings a box and presents it to Joe. He opens it to see the sexy photos of Melissa. He tells Melissa that he would get up and give her a kiss, but he can’t for obvious reasons.

Nicole, Bobby, Tuh-ressa, Rino, Santa and Sal are also celebrating Valentine’s Day at Rino’s restaurant. Everyone is dressed in red except for Bobby and Sal. They all reminisce about their favorite moments together as a couple. Tuh-ressa and Rino met when they were 18, married and divorced at 28 and then re-married years later. She doesn’t care that he slept with strippers.

Nicole says her mom wants to know if Bobby will be a forever bachelor. He will not be pressured into marrying anyone! He wants to go at his own pace. They talk about when they met; Nicole said she was going to have to kiss a lot of frogs before she met her prince. He told her that she won’t need to kiss anymore frogs. Awwwww. Hey talk is cheap Bobby; put a ring on it already.

Next we see Teresa at one of her book signings. For some odd reason, Amber is there. She tells us that Jim doesn’t want her hanging around the Giudice’s because of their charges and reputations.  After a couple autographs and photographs, Victoria Gotti walks in. She goes to the head of the line, and begins talking to Teresa leaving her “fans” waiting. She invites Amber and Teresa to her home for wine and conversation. Suddenly, the event is over and all of the fans have gone away.

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 1.44.02 PM

They arrive at Gotti’s house and Amber is nervous what Jim is going to say when he learns where she is. Victoria preaches to Teresa about ignoring the negative press and friends. Teresa says that whoever isn’t for her is just jealous. YES SHE SAID THAT! Oh to be in her delusional mind for just a day. Victoria asks Amber if she is friends with the twins. She says that she has been for a few years. Victoria says she has known Rino for a very long time.

She proceeds to tell them about the time she met Rino at his restaurant. She was single and so was he. He flirted with her and a few weeks later, when she was hospitalized; she was coming to and found Rino in her hospital room. He presented her with Rolex watch which she of course, turned down. While they never dated, they did become good friends.

Screen Shot 2014-08-25 at 1.46.20 PM

Such great friends in fact, that Victoria starts talking about when Rino and Tuh-ressa divorced. She says that Rino confided some things to her and said that if Tuh-ressa knew who he hooked up, she would never forgive him. The girls think that it was her twin, Nicole. Nope that’s not it! It was their mother, Santa! Amber covers her mouth like she is holding back vomit and Teresa says “what?” in her high pitched screech.

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.

  • italiano bambino

    Mummy gotti making her grand entrance…is mummy gotti pissed because rino didn’t bang her? Or santa did had some rino on the side…

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey Bam
      If any of that story is true..then Yuk on Rino…and Booooo on Santa

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the recap, Reality LuLu. Notice that Juicy has changed the combination of “brains and brawn” to “brand and brawn.” We already knew she has to brains, and now she confirms it by telling us the doesn’t know what “brawn” is, either.

    • twifan2

      It’s a paper towel. 😀

  • italiano bambino

    Team Tre lol

    Another delusional

    • WestCoastFeed

      Poor things, being an admitted felon has forced her to curtail her desserts line.

      • twifan2

        WHAT!!!???
        No Jailato coming? :'(
        I’m crushed!

        • italiano bambino

          Twi people have standards lol

          • twifan2

            LOL :p

        • Jennymckitty

          Twi, I’ll bet she will make a special batch just for you. Just ignore the skull and crossbones on the packaging.

      • italiano bambino

        She lost touch of reality but can’t blame other then her

        • twifan2

          AND Juicy is to blame too!
          Don’t forget The Brawn! 😀

          • italiano bambino

            Lol another idiot

          • twifan2

            They were made for each other-no one else wants them! 😉

          • italiano bambino

            That’s for damn sure

          • Pinky Pie

            Didn’t Joe look pissed at Teresa when she was talking to him. I think he wanted to run into the prison, and not have to see Teresa again.

      • She was so pitiful last night when she talking about her businesses declining and companies not wanting to carry her products. Bitch please, I was not buying her woe-is-me act.

        • WestCoastFeed

          She has another gig next Wednesday. Another Fabellini event.

          • How much ya wanna bet, Leopard Man and the other psychos will rally the troops (what’s left of them) to support her?? She looked so damn pitiful last night, even I felt a tinch of sympathy.

          • twifan2

            What were you smoking at the time, Doc?! :/

          • Well as mean as I am, I do have a heart. Or maybe it was that cheap wine I bought because Whole Foods was closed. Either or.

          • twifan2

            I’ll take the ‘cheap’ wine as the excuse! 😉
            All I have to do is remember those kids having to sleep on the floor of their mom’s shop because they got kicked out of their apt & VOILA! NO heart for that Tremp! >(

          • Pinky Pie

            So, basically, Teresa would sell 5 bottles of Fabustinky? Do u think that her “crew” r forced to buy a bottle at each event to get to number 5? Did u nearly die laughing when Teresa said she would”buy” two bottles to bring to Victoria’s? Like Teresa doesn’t drive around with cases of that crap in her trunk. To make it funnier, The look on Victoria’s face when Teresa said it. Looked like Victoria was saying “Oh, God, don’t!”

        • Marsbars09

          Doc, when she said that I was like, “don’t you know you’re damaged goods you f*cking felon!”. It’s too bad there is no one in Tre’s life that will tell her like it is. That’s why she’s in the situation she’s in today.

      • Pinky Pie

        I don’t think it JUST that Teresa is a admitted felon, I think it is because her “fans” finally figured out that Teresa MAY have lied about being a great Italian cook.

        • WestCoastFeed

          They probably spotted those bakery boxes on her kitchen counter the day she had the ladies over for her dessert tasting.

          • Pinky Pie

            You’re so funny! Lol! Yeah, bakery boxes would be a dead give away that Teresa didn’t make any dessert using her ingredientces.

  • WestCoastFeed

    And she is still claiming that people are jealous of her. SMH

  • italiano bambino

    Dina is so useless

    • WestCoastFeed

      No, her scenes are cleverly spaced for the viewing audience’s bathroom breaks.

      • italiano bambino

        BAHAHA damn right wcf

    • Why is she even on the show? She’s boring and serves NO purpose!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Great recap…
    I call bullchit…Tre and The Ambuh knew what Gotti was gonna spill ON CAMERA.
    Just shady…..
    Nicole..Bawby ain’t gonna put a ring on it…IJS
    Gonzo we know what the red light really is for: you have a balding spot due to all the heavy extensions…it is treatment. Real talk my cousin used to receive them to stimulate the scalp.
    Stop frontin…You have a boytoy on the side but is staying married to Tommy because he hasn’t served you yet…

  • Great recap RL!

    An insult to the intelligence of all the fans of this show. This was all very staged, Victoria Gotti just popping up and the other Housewives. I have a suspicion Victoria and Teresa got together and planned to reveal this salacious piece of gossip to take the heat off of Teresa’s legal mess. And it worked.

    • Jennymckitty

      How long is it going to take before Amber repeats it? And if Jim and “all of NJ” knew about this, then why did Amber act show shocked?

      • twifan2

        Don’t forget, Jennymckitty-Amber is an ‘actor’. 😉
        She does all those commercials for JimBooB!

        • Jennymckitty

          Yes, I’ve seen them. They are…uhhh..brilliant. I’ve never appreciated what an accomplished actress Tori Spelling and Tara Reid were until I viewed them. I guess she was surprised that someone was saying it on TV.

        • Pinky Pie

          No, Amber thinks she is an actor. Lol!

      • Anthony

        Her significant other is sharp, smart & quick with words.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Doc! Do you think Santa and Rino really had an affair and Vicky and Tre planned on how it would be announced on national TV?

  • WestCoastFeed

    Question–did Amber ride over to Victoria’s house in Teresa’s car? Or just how did she get there to have been complaining of car sickness? Then, how did she get home when she left abruptly rather than hear any more gossip?

    • production drove her. Bravo provides transportation for all day shootings.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi WCF! I found it odd that Amber was mysteriously missing during the last few minutes of the episode. I was like, “where in the hell did she go?”

  • Pinky Pie

    The Italian American community should sue BRAVO for constantly portraying all of these people as mafia, or mafia want to be. I nearly choked when that idiot Teresa said she likes to watch “The Godfather” over and over again. Most Italian women will not watch that movie. All of my relatives will tell you that long before the nasty gangster Italian mafia, it was the Italians that lead the way in the years of the Renaissance. Those were the years of enlightenment. The mafia brought shame to being Italian. So, when Teresa, the dumb ass, says she loves that movie… Right, that seems right. Teresa is a convicted felon, on national tv, admiring the ways of criminal behavior. Does that movie teach to stick with family? Didn’t the brother get shot by another brother. Yeah, stick with family was the lesson there. Also, didn’t the wife leave the husband? Yeah,that was the lesson Teresa.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Pinky! Are you of Italian descent?
      I have a lot of respect for what the Italians have contributed to this country. I do not pay such ignorant stereotypes any mind.

      • Pinky Pie

        Thank you! Yes, I’m Italian. I was reminded of the good things of my ethnicity throughout my life. What is bothersome, is that rarely do Italians scream about racism. I wasn’t bothered by this show until Victoria Gotti made her godmother appearance.(boy she looks like an old lady trying really hard to be young. Those hair extensions look like her cat died on her head. I’d say get a clue Victoria, but I fear I would be leaving it for a senile old bat.) do u remember her show, Growing Up Gotti? My husband (English) and I laughed at how completely stupid she and her idiot sons were. They went to Italy and told everyone they were Italian, not such a big deal since almost everyone in the country was. Plus, what the “h” is wrong with Teresa that she would be filmed with Victoria, with her obvious mob ties, while Teresa is preparing for sentencing. Has Teresa never heard the expression, “Birds of a feather?” I think Bravo has gone a hair to far with every single Italian connected to crime, and the sleazy representation of Italian women. Wow, I’m sick of it. My relatives have to be rolling in their graves. I tell myself they don’t represent Italian women, they don’ represent anyone but themselves, and shame on them. But, wow! Same thing with Jersey Shore, shame on them, all the girls on the show who are actually Italian, guys, too. To refer to themselves as guidos is so insulting to Italians (just as bad as the “N” word) shame on them, and the networks.

        • Marsbars09

          I used to watch Vicky’s show. For the most part I found it entertaining, however, I would never want to meet her. Her family has extensive organized crime ties and I know better than to associate with that type of being.
          Teresa and Amber are using their quest for relevance to cloud their common sense. I’m sure the judge will be none to thrilled to see Tre fraternizing with John Gotti’s daughter.

          • Pinky Pie

            Maybe Teresa is losing her job, so the judge won’t have to worry about Teresa “hanging” with Victoria. Still, how absolutely stupid on Teresa part to film with Victoria Gotti. How did her crisis manager allow this to happen? Lol! I guess criminals think their friends are normal people. I think tv is trying to make us feel like all the criminals they show us are accepted by society…sure! Lol, they have no respect for the viewer.

          • Marsbars09

            I don’t think Tre listens to her attorneys and PR team. I’m sure they’ve warned her about not doing certain things such as hang with people that have had dealings with people in organized crime.

          • Pinky Pie

            I’m sure Teresa’s attorney is going bald from tearing his own hair out. He must look in the mirror and repeat to himself the dollar amount she is paying him.

        • equinox2009

          Tell it, girl!! So embarrassing since I am Italian also, disgraceful low lifes

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I love your recaps Reality LuLu.

    The show is a big yawn now. The scenes with Teresa’s family are hard to watch because you know they have to be so careful about what they say and you can see the stress on her face especially. Everything else is just people with money who never grew up.

  • Dave

    Victoria and Theresa met on Celebrity Apprentice a few years ago. Those 2 bitches set this whole thing up. Shame on them. Why would Victoria Gotti wanna get involved with the hype over a Bravo show? Lost a lot of respect for Victoria, I thought she was better than that.

    • twifan2

      I lost ‘respect’ for when she associated with Tre, Dave.
      smh :/

    • WORD!!!

    • Marsbars09

      I thought Vicky was above such nonsense too. She’s a famewhore like the rest of them.

  • Jessie

    Amber is so pretty, but man does she need some help with her makeup. That picture up top she looks like a clown.

  • Jennymckitty

    I would have liked to seen Victoria’s TH: “What are my brothers going to think about me inviting some rat’s wife to my house?”

    • twifan2

      Which rat’s wife? Juicy’s or JimBooB’s?

      • Jennymckitty

        Oh…didn’t think of Juicy.

        • TartLemon

          Juicy’s exactly who I thought of.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Teresa’s blog is up. She was shocked, shocked at what Victoria said about Rino.

    Sure she was.

    • Jennymckitty

      Maybe the first time Victoria said it…not so much when they taped it.

    • RonnieIsBack

      She is a liar..she is the one who brought up Reno…

  • Jennymckitty

    Tereza: “Rino, could you stop by my mom’s house and help her out. With dad in prison, she needs a man to take care of a few things.” It was an honest mistake. I can see how it could happen.

    • twifan2

      Can you just see Milania saying the same thing to Rino when Juicy ‘goes away’.
      Milania is always thinking of her mother. 😉

      • Pinky Pie

        I would question Rino’s eyesight if he stopped by for Teresa.

    • Marsbars09

      Hi Jenny! I am tripping out about Sal or Silvio being incarcerated. I learn more about these lowlifes with each episode.
      Some things are better left unknown.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Mugshots galore…which speaking of….
        ooooohwee..I was just searching about a client (seriously) who apparently ahs the same or similar name as my ex louse of a husband’s new wife…she now has a MUGSHOT a recent one…and now they are separated…..Wow…I wanted to do bodily harm to him…I guess she was more than words….wozer…I am still a bit like …ouch but then again I keep telling myself..That could have been you Ronnie…

    • RonnieIsBack

      dayum…hehhehe that is EXACTLY how it happened…
      Santa go to crying on his shoulder….and the rest is history…
      I guess at Christmas getting a present from Santa will be viewed in a different light.

  • TartLemon

    The only people who will be hurt by the parlor game is the children involved. The adults are having a big hardee har har while the children are stabbed in the soul. Let’s review again some of the scumbag moves made by Victoria Gotti’s Father and Husband.

    • Marsbars09

      True dat Tart! These grown imbeciles are just worried about furthering their own selfish agendas. Damn the collateral damage like their children and parents.

  • RonnieIsBack

    What I found interesting was that when meeting with Grandma Gotti, Tre was the first to bring up Reno…
    BTW is her heat cut off…why in the hell did everyone keep their coats on .
    Why does The Ambuh keep referring to her husband as an attorney? So what he passed the bar. He wasn’t sworn in and he does not practice law….gurl stop.
    they zoomed in on Tre’s “calendar” and Shady Bravo showed that Milania and Tre were looking at a map, not a calendar…damn shame.
    Gonzo/Dina….yawn…after a second watch she is still boring.
    The twins…they are so worried about Nicole when Teresa is the one with problems..I gagged when she actually mentioned “so what Reno slept with a lot of strippers”….I didn’t know her mom used to strip..Just sayin..
    Next week will be interesting…
