Real Housewives of New Jersey Recap: Judgement Day [Finale]

Posted on Oct 20 2014 - 12:50am by BeachSpin

“The Real Housewives of New Jersey” begins this week with an icy blast of TRUE reality with a snippet of news coverage from October 2nd, the  Giudice sentencing day. It’s finale night, and this opening does cast a fitting shadow of shame over the episode, as we head into the last week of a snoozy but seedy season. We backtrack six months and the Giudice kids are having fun, frolicking with their Gorga cousins.  The whole scene is shrieky and frantic, and all I really gleaned from it is that Joe obviously learned his drunken gymnast skills from his kids.  Teresa is sharing her outlook on life..that it isn’t all peaches and cream, ya know, things happen, not every day is gonna be smooth…ummmm YES…especially six months from now!  I keep getting distracted by the enormous cupcake pyramid on the counter.

We now find ourselves at the New Jersey version of Buckingham Palace, where the Ladybug charity event is being held.  We meet Abbey, who owns the house, has dogs the size of ponies, and obviously shares a stylist with Vicky Gotti.  They all discuss the guest list, decide that Teresa has shady taste in friends, and determine that Bangs Gotti is out.  Later we hear that Jim is not attending either…so exactly how is this supposed to be fun?  One of the horse-dogs passes gas on Dina, then gazes at the camera, knowingly proud.  We shift to an oddly flower covered Marchese living room, where Amber is getting her first haircut in five years, to symbolize her long awaited freedom from cancer. The hairdresser cuts off enough to provide a wig for another patient, and it is emotional and encouraging for the whole family.  YAY Amber!

LIGHTS….CAMERA…. that’s right…we are officially at the completely BOGUS Gorga mansion groundbreaking scene. As of July 1st 2014,  Joe or Melissa Gorga had NO construction permits filed, according to to the Borough of Franklin Lakes Construction Department. Sooo…just close your eyes and  pretend we are on the back lot of some low budget Lifetime movie. ACTION!  Melissa is excited that Joe has once again pulled off making a crapload of play money so that they could land these sweet roles as rich folks, so she launches into her trademark camera booty shake, hair fling, and teeth flash.  Some classic and always icky Gorga sexual innuendo is thrown in for good measure, to remind us for the millionth time, that they are supposedly constantly in heat.  Oh and in case we forgot, all Melissa REALLY wants is health, contentment, love, family, a backhoe…and maybe enough real cash to pay the backhoe rental, and the guy who has to fill in the hole.  CUT!

RHONJ

The Ladybug event is almost here and Dina, the event planner and avid clearance aisle decorator, has kicked into high gear, pulling things together like she did in her failed HGTV glory days. Teresa arrives and she and Dina drone on about how things haven’t been settled with the twins, blah blah blah…maybe something will happen, and by this time I am actually hoping so, because this episode is zenning me into a coma. Where is Jim Marchese when you need him?

RHONJ

The big night is here, and the guests begin arriving.  Amber shows up and she looks great with her new hairdo.  We flip to the twins and their parents driving to the event, and once again all of the yammer is about Teresa and her evil plot to destroy their family.  They arrive with the shindig in full swing.  Nicole is wearing a trademark 2009 Kim Kardashian castoff,  Teresa is in a borrowed number from Gia, and the room is a sea of bad extensions and spray tans. The kids strut in a cute and colorful fashion show.  Amber decides to try and make peace with Rino….why??…and Rino wonders if Amber really knows who she’s married to. I believe that YOU Rino, are the one who forgot that one, and we can throw in another select family member too!

RHONJ

Then right on cue, Teresssa…NOT Teresa, brings up Motherfu**ergate and they finally face off about her role in the tacky mess. The predictably positioned cast of women is circled around them, trying to pull off their best mature and aloof side eye poses while hiding that they’re straining to catch every word.  The twins flail their arms, nasally bleat, and try to bait Teresa by calling her stupid.  She maintains a classy and calm demeanor, and tries not to roll her eyes.  THIS is what an innocent Teresa looks like!  The two women hug it out and make peace, while the others smile weakly and try to hide their disappointment at the lack of fireworks.  Dina begins her nap inducing hostess speech, and the women begin their season ending statements. Teresssa just strokes her hair, Nicole declares that the past few months have been “such another emotional time,” Amber is standing by her dreamboat, Dina is keepin’ it snoozy, Melissa thinks happiness is beautiful, and Teresa is worried sick and crying all the time.

RHONJ

We jump forward again and we are back to October 2nd. The Bravo cameras are working overtime at the various cast members’ homes to catch their first reactions to the sentencing. Kathy, Rich, Rosie, Nicole, Bobby, Amber and Jim are all anxiously awaiting the news, and Joe’s 3.5 year prison sentence, is revealed.  The cast waits out the hours as the rest of us did, and finally hear of Teresa’s sentence of 15 months. Predictable shock, tears and expressed concerns follow.  As we watch Joe and Teresa leave court, Rosie reads a prayer…I am not sure if she wrote it…but it is beautiful and is read with unselfish sincerity and heart.  As we wave good bye to season 6…I can’t think of a better way to end it. Thanks to all of you All About the Tea readers who hung with me with these recaps…through the boring, trashy, and VERY real. It’s been fun!

    Thanks for the recap Beach Spin! Dogs are so intuitive aren’t they? He knew who was most deserving of that fart. How does Teresa keep her hair all coiffed? It almost looks carved out of wood at this stage.

    • nan/4

      LOL!!!! Too FUNNY!!!!! :-))

    • BeachSpin

      BWAHAHAHA…like a totem pole!! YES!

  • Norrth

    RHONY Alex and her creepy husband drove me crazy. I was so glad when she got the boot. Then I saw her again on Nancy Grace (I think) and she called this one. She said Bravo would have camera crews in the HWs homes to catch the reactions to make them part of the show and that it’s all about good television. HA!

    I no longer watch the show, with the exception of an occasional scene. I don’t like any of these people any more except Jacq, Kathy, and Rosie. I have no problem with the Gorgas, I’m just not interested enough in them to sit through the show. I would trade the Marcheses and the twins for a stick of gum. I think the bottom of the barrel has been scraped and ripped ragged if either of them is considered “bringing it” to the show, in my opinion. Your recap is FAR more entertaining than the show has been. Thank you for the laughs!

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Norrth – ITA, I would much prefer a cast of Jac, Kathy, Rosie and the Gorgas. They’re all so much more likeable than the newbies, Dina or the Giudices.

      • WestCoastFeed

        I’m with you Beverly Hills. Dump the newbies, especially the Marcheses.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          I hope they do WCF! What a breath of fresh air RHONJ would be without the rotten apples.

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks so much Norrth! Luckily even the boring junk gave me plenty of things to laugh at!

    • ITA!!

  • DLister

    It’s GREAT to see Abbey on the show. She is a true angel. A few years ago before she got married, I ran into her a bit at the Colts Neck Inn. You would never know she was so wealthy as she is very humble and has a raucous sense of humor. She has one of the largest if not THE largest mansions in Colts Neck. Similar to Bobby Ciasulli, her dad cultivated the largest dental practices in the state. She loves to give back, and has opened her estate to many fundraisers.

    Watching the episode I saw a few wonderful women I became blessed to know through my career of writing about local charities. Now THESE are truly the beautiful ladies of central New Jersey! Yay, Abbey!

    • Jennymckitty

      Jim is trashing her and Tommy on Twitter. I hope they go after him privately.

      • DLister

        That saddens me. I will have to look. I maintain that Abbey is truly a loving, altruistic soul. I’ll never forget her telling me how she knew how blessed she was and that her father began to encourage her to give back when she was very young.

        • Jennymckitty

          She sounds like a class act. I’m sorry that her character is being called into question. I think Jim’s motivation is to take down Dina.

          • DLister

            Hi, Jenny! She truly is. I saw that tweet, it made my stomach lurch. What a jealous pig he must be. I wonder: would HE open up his huge-ass home for any charitable endeavor? You didn’t see too much of Abbey because she isn’t really that comfy with such a spotlight. She simply likes to “do.” I would believe that in her mind, doing this show and charity really was more for any sick child’s benefit than anything else.
            About three maybe four years ago I interviewed Dina about Project Ladybug. It’s totally legit. She was also very humble about it, and extremely devoted. She has an effective charity that has provided funds for families of children with cancer that has helped tremendously.

          • Jennymckitty

            All those nasty tweets from Jim are turning my stomach. He called Abbey scum for taking money from Bravo. She sounds like a lovely woman. She doesn’t deserve all of these vile tweets as she isn’t a HW.

          • DLister

            Know what, Jenny? His vile tweets say so much more about him than Abbey. That f*cker is so jealous of her life and how much she gives freely — he cannot see straight.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I saw those twitter exchanges, too. Much as I dislike Dina’s phony Zen act, Jim’s attack on the charity were nasty and not warranted. What is the matter with him?

          • Jennymckitty

            I think he is jealous of Abbey and her actual wealth. I think he is threatened by Dina because she stands up to Jim. One more tweet from him and I may be forced into becoming a die hard Dina fan. What has Jim done for charity?
            I just read an article about Abbey and she sounds like a lovely, giving person. I hate that he is attempting to drag her through the mud.

          • twifan2

            I think he’s starting to sweat it out. People & their practicing lawyers may be starting to come after him!

          • Jennymckitty

            Hey Twi, I’ve missed you!!! Hope all is well. Give Chats a chin scratch from me.

          • twifan2

            Hi Hi Jenny! 🙂
            Sorry, but had a Tera bite put in my comp & now having some probs. 🙁
            That’s the price for nuvo technology! 🙂
            Chats’ LOVES the chin scratch from you! NOW he wants more of them! :/

          • Jennymckitty

            On my way with more…xoxo Chats

          • twifan2

            Bring him some salmon fillet & he’ll stay glued to you 4ever! 🙂

  • Jennymckitty

    Thus ends the worst HW season in history. The most entertaining part was watching the dogs. I wish Bravo would cast them.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    I’ve seen a few comments on other sites basically calling Kathy and Jac phony for being so upset at the sentencing – it’s not that hard to believe that they are genuinely upset for the family despite how they feel about Teresa is it? They know those kids since they were born and Joe and parents for a huge part of their lives, unlike us viewers who can look at this and be emotionally detached. TBH I would be more worried if they weren’t upset.

    • nan/4

      I agree, and thought that not only were their emotions were genuine, but they most touching part of the entire finale. How can people possibly find fault in them? That was raw anguish….Rosie too. I even saw Rich well up with tears which is more than I can say for the rest of them.

      • Jennymckitty

        Morning, Nan. I so agree. I was even emotional watching the ending. The people at Kathy’s house all love Tre & Joe. They may fight but they will always love each other.

        • nan/4

          Hi Jenny! Yup, we certainly saw it the same way. That’s why from what I saw of the reunion, Teresa’s reaction was most negatively directed at the people who were most torn up about her sentence! Makes no sense to me, but then again, most of this season made very little sense to me.

          I hope that you have a very nice Monday, Jenny!

          Be well, honey! 🙂

          • chacha1

            Teresa is as mean as a rattlesnake and was the mastermind of the scams and fraud … JS

        • chacha1

          Teresa loves no one but her DAWDERS, her scammed money, and her nasty looking house

          • Pinky Pie

            No, Teresa, does not love her Dawders, she just uses them. She only likes to say she loves them. You are being brainwashed by Teresa. And, please say it correctly, “4 beautiful Dawders” 🙂

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        I thought the same nan. I bet if Teresa reached out to any one of them tomorrow they would be there, no questions asked.

        • nan/4

          After watching little snippets of the reunion, and seeing how Kathy and Rosie were treated by Teresa, I’m not too sure anymore. There comes a point where you try to be there for someone, and if you keeps getting slapped in the face, you stop trying. They might be at that point. Teresa is such a fool. She’d rather have Victoria Gotti as a friend?? You know what they say…”Dumb is dumb!”

          Hey there Bev! Hope all is well with you and yours. 🙂

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Hey nan! Yeah perhaps they have reached that point. I just remember Jac sitting at the reunion beside Teresa last year and she seemed really pleased that they were on the mend – or so she thought. I could tell from Teresa’s face that it was all for the cameras. She so cold and calculating, it might take her a while to count on her fingers, but she’s calculating all the same.
            All good thanks, wishing it was Friday already though! Hope all is good for you too.

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            Well, we all know that Juicy can’t count to 21 unless he naked…

          • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

            Hahahaha! I’d say 20 and a half 🙂

    • DLister

      Well said, Beverly Hills!

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Glad I’m not alone!

    • WaWaWaWHAT!

      I think it was the hysterical crying from Jacqueline that left viewers confused…we all know Jac has been up & down on emotions for a while…

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Jac seems like someone who wears her heart on her sleeve.

      • BeachSpin

        It would be easy for any mom familiar with the family to empathize with Tre and the girls. It would be abnormal not to, IMO. She’s just more demonstrative than some.

    • MorningYawn

      Certainly nobody can be happy about this outcome. Despite the fact that the juicys are morally reprehensible and have treated everyone terribly, they are still family and/or were once true friends. They are damned if they do/ damned if they don’t in their reactions. I’m sure there is full awareness of the fact that this didn’t have to happen. Rosie’s prayer sounds beautiful and I have no doubt it was sincere,

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        So true. They are just not that spiteful or cold hearted to not be sad about it.

    • BeachSpin

      I think it’s easy to be overwhelmed just because the whole situation is depressing and sad, although necessary.

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        Exactly. Kathy is family to those girls and Jac has also known them all since they were born. How could they not be upset.

    • chacha1

      I am very sad that Kathy is crying her heart out for Teresa when Teresa has been nothing but a mean bitch to her and would never ever cry for Kathy nor Rosie for that fact, Teresa never bothers with Rosie, only Joe does … and to be honest if it was Kathy and Rich who were going to prison Teresa would flap her man hands around screeching “OH WELL” and then go shopping ….. Joe and Teresa have made disgusting remarks about Kathy on camera calling her a raccoon among other things and Kathy and Rosie are nice people

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        I think Kathy has taken a lot from Teresa over the years, who clearly looked down her nose as she was on the rise to stardom (in her little head). She knows more than anyone how fake Teresa is.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    What the Ladybug event was missing >>> Jim Marchese!!

    BORING!!! Thank Goodness this season is over…Bring on RHOA!!!

    • I couldn’t agree more!!

    • BeachSpin

      Yeah!! I wanted Jim there the whole time…just to keep me awake.

    • WestCoastFeed

      Thank goodness Jim was not there. And this time he is the one who got to tell us that cancer is worse than prison, not Amber.

  • nan/4

    What a DUD! That was the worst finale I have ever seen! We all knew how it was going to end, but leading up to the ending was a very staged looking fight between Teresa (who looked like she was wearing a dress made out of curtains) and the twins. BIG WOOP! We got to see differing reactions to the sentences, with the only real feelings coming from Kathy, Melissa, Richie, Rosie and Chris. Then to top it all off, on WWHL, who was voted the favorite NJ housewife? TERESA!!!! What a joke……Yeah, the joke is on all of us for watching this season.

    Highlight? That AMAZING home where the function was held. other than that? Nuttin’ honey.

    • MorningYawn

      Hey hey! Melissa was filmed on sentencing day? That bothers me. She is Teresa’s family, no matter how strained their relationship is. She should have kept it private!!

      • nan/4

        Morning Morning! The only time I remember her was when she was having a big “O” while Joe broke ground on their new home. Not sure if that was the same day? Other than that, I don’t recall seeing her. I might have fallen asleep though….I was SO ENGROSSED in all of the action…..yeah right.

        • MorningYawn

          Ha! Thx for saying that. Didn’t see it so wanted to be sure. Happy Monday!

      • WestCoastFeed

        I don’t think Melissa or Joe were filmed that day. I can’t imagine them agreeing to do it.

      • murlut

        Sorry but after everything Teresa did to her, who cares. Teresa is trash and got caught. Everyone was filmed that day, I am sure and I am sure Bravo demanded it

    • chacha1

      Melissa has been exceptionally happy this season and it is only because Joe and Teresa admitted to their crimes and are going to do prison time ….

      • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

        If I had a sister-in-law like Teresa I would probably be dancing around like Melissa too. That little jig couldn’t just be for breaking ground could it?

  • MorningYawn

    Which twin is it that looks like she is doing the Macarena in that pic above?

    • TereSSa

      • MorningYawn

        They really are that tacky, aren’t they?

        • nan/4

          BIG TIME tacky, M.Y.!!!!!

        • Complete low-lifes.

  • italiano bambino

    We need Kim Sniff to do the Jersey events now those can be good. Sorry zzzzzina you fail to deliver. . Now get back to the clutter closet

  • chacha1

    No way did that convict Teresa win any poll, that was all a big phony poll because Andy is nothing but a kiss ass to that stank azz Teresa

    • WestCoastFeed

      But chacha, when she loses a poll the Tre Huggers get mad at Andy and claim that he hates her. She won last night because of the scenes of her old cast mates weeping for her. It was a kind of sentimental farewell.

      • Yeah, that’s the same impression I got. Love her or hate her, she keeps tongues wagging.

        • Pinky Pie

          I think it is more BRAVO staged crying. I don’t think any of that was real. Most adults don’t cry out loud. There might have been tears, but when their voice got involved, I was laughing. No one died, this isn’t a cousin or friend, who treated any of the crying people well, and they didn’t get prison sentence for crimes they weren’t guilty of. So, I might have believed tears, but the crying loudly gave the staged scene away. Bravo is so much fun. How many people would really gather, well dressed, to wait for the verdict. The time alone they would have had to wait at one person’s house is mind boggling. And, why weren’t those men, at least, at work. They took he day off to listen for a verdict? Lol! Bravo is giving their “secret” away!

          • chacha1

            For a good Canolli I would !!! LOL

          • Pinky Pie

            Me, too! But, only a good one like my grandmother made. Yum, I would invite you over. If only. 🙂 she was the best cook and baker. And, she made enough that we could stay for a week. I sure miss her.

          • chacha1

            well I will have to fight you on that one,(LOL) my nana made the best and taught me everything about cooking, she came from Italy and would get really upset if we said SANGwich ….. she spoke broken English but wanted her kids and us grandkids to be proud americans and not talk trash

          • Pinky Pie

            Hey, how are you cousin Chacah? 🙂 we must have had the same grandmother. I think if we would have sent them to N.J. Their accents would have disappeared. No offense to N.J. Our grandmother’s were strong women, there was no arguing with them. And, I mean it. U did what you were asked to do, out of love and respect. Chacha, we were lucky to have those women in our lives. But, it would have been fun to come over and taste test!

      • chacha1

        that makes sense 🙂 because you and I know that she didn’t win any popularity poll for that beat up old polecat Teresa

  • chacha1

    And so they are all (Rosie, Kathy, Richie, Jac, Chris) beating their breasts crying over this nasty Guidice hosebags who had 41 counts of CRIME lodged against them and they feel sorry ???? GTFOOH … Teresa and that dirtbag Joe are lucky they only got 15 months and 3-1/2 years, freakin crimnals !!! Cry me a F River

    • Hahaha! Tell it Chacha!! They were all acting like Teresa and Joe got life in prison.

      • chacha1

        Hi Suess, I have to be honest if one of my family members treated me as badly as Teresa and Joe treated them I would say “well you do the crime you do the time” and pray for the Dawders to grow up and be totally opposite as those hosebags that raised them.

        • Hi Chacha. I agree with you. They don’t deserve all the care and compassion extended to them. They never gave a hoot about anyone else and had the tables been reserved in this situation, they would not be home crying over Kathy and Richie.

          • chacha1

            Exactly 🙂

  • WestCoastFeed

    Thanks for the recap, Beach
    Best part of the episode–the kids in the fashion show. And how sweet of Giovanni to participate wearing those lady bug slippers.
    Abbey’s house is gorgeous. I was pleased to discover on twitter that she and her husband have become big pals of Rosie.

    • Morning West, the kids were cute.

    • BeachSpin

      YW WCF…I was relieved that the kids weren’t dressed hoochie…I was just waiting for it. It was a nice surprise.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Wendy Feldman’s face was blurred by Bravo in the films of Joe and Tre walkin to & from the court room. Interesting. She refused to sign a non-disclosure agreement with Bravo? I am puzzled. She was shown in all the news coverage.

    • italiano bambino

      I noticed that . and knowing how that fame whore is I’m surprise she request that

      • WestCoastFeed

        HI, bambino. But was it her decision or Bravo’s decision?

        • italiano bambino

          Probably her. probably think she’s famous lol

          • Pinky Pie

            Probably she wanted $$$$, and bravo said no. So, she made them blur her. The way I see it, she isn’t very attractive to begin with, so who wants to seeanother convict?

          • Birdie11

            That was my first thought…maybe she saw herself on TV and ran screaming in the other direction, lol.

          • WestCoastFeed

            I found her tweet. She said it was her decision along with Bravo’s.

          • realityreally

            So she wanted to be paid and Bravo said no.

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I noticed that. I wonder why Wendy didn’t allow Bravo to show her face. I know she love publicity.

      • chacha1

        she probably told Bravo they would have to pay her to show her face and they said GTFOOH and so they blurred her skank face out of the scene

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yeah that was some funny chit.
      I just thought it was because she looked like Humpty Dumpty on film. LOL

    • Babson_Chick

      Wondered who that was – thanks WCF!!

  • Dana

    The twins are disgusting. Yesterday’s leftover garbage.

    • BeachSpin

      Hey Dana…that must be why I always want to take a shower after watching them.

  • nan/4

    You know how newbies like to attach themselves on to the “big cheese” of the show? They do this to try to ingrain themselves in the storyline, to insure another season of being on the show? This is how I read the VERY fast friendship that developed between Ambuh and Teresa. To me, Ambuh is as phony as could be. She needs some acting lessons…PRONTO!!! JMO folks! 😉

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I think you are right Nan. I didn’t like how Amber came out the gate swinging at Melissa, seemed liked she was playing to the viewers from the off.

    • Babson_Chick

      I agree!! These newbies are so fake and tacky and I’ve seen enough of them.

  • murlut

    I am sorry but if my friend took millions and lied to a court, I would be re-evaluating my friendship. Who wants to be friends with them???? The same goes with a family member. Suck it up and take your punishment. I feel for the kids but they have played them to the hilt too and used them. You were so concerned about your kids, you wouldn’t be in that position

  • nan/4

    This is all I got. I am SO OVER this show.

    Be well everyone! 😉

    • RonnieIsBack

      Hey chica you too.
      My mom is finally home from the hospital again (last week for me was brutal).
      Alls Well that Ends Well…for now..
      All we can ask for.
      Hugs!

      • realityreally

        Praying good thoughts and healing for your Mom and strength for you and your family.

      • nan/4

        That’s great news Ronnie! I know it must have been rough, but thank goodness she’s home now, and hopefully you can begin to relax again. You are both in my prayers as I wish for your Mom to get stronger every day.

        Remember to take good care of yourself too Ronnie!
        Be well sweetie… 😉

      • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

        Thought & prayers for you & your Mom Ronnie. Hope she will be feeling better soon. All my best to you both Hon!

  • RealitytvJunkie

    I thought TereSSa behaved childish last night by attacking Teresa at the Ladybug event. I don’t care for Teresa and she’s guilty as sin but the rumor being spread was not her fault.

      They each had a chance to have their say and come to an agreement and hug it out. Probably wasn’t what production wanted, but it was what they got.

      • RealitytvJunkie

        After hugging it out last night, the twins took their venom onto the reunion and attacked Teresa again with the clink clink taunting.

      • RonnieIsBack

        That’s because Jacqs drunk azz wasn’t there…

    • Birdie11

      I completely agree Reality…and I honestly get bored with single dimensional views on every move Teresa makes. Not only was that rumor spread not her fault…but she handled herself well while being accused and baited. i give her credit for some growth.

  • WestCoastFeed

    Just like Amber. Jim’s first wife. Rebecca, was also a body builder. I guess some men find muscular women attractive. I think people, men and women, who go for body building are mostly people with narcissistic personality disorder.

    • Chloe

      I’m a female body builder. According to your comment, my husband suffers from narcissistic personality disorder. I think not.

      • Birdie11

        COOL Chloe!…I am mildly fitness obsessed, but I admire that dedication.

        • Chloe

          Thanks. It’s expensive and grueling but I love the sport.

    • Birdie11

      That’s quite a leap…Amber admitted to being vain…but that’s as far as I’d go with it.

      • WestCoastFeed

        Think about it. What have we learned about her? Her self image is all centered on her surviving breast cancer.

        • Birdie11

          I’m the wrong person to ask this…that is her reality…and it can absolutely be all encompassing. I think now that she’s been diagnosed clean, she can move on.

          • RealitytvJunkie

            I think Cancer survivor/sufferer is a personal and unique journey for each individual.

          • Birdie11

            Definitely…I just always cut them a world of slack.

          • RonnieIsBack

            amen

          • chacha1

            It’s horrible as I am a victim of it and even though you are told they got all the cancer out you live in constant fear that it will get you again …

          • ✿❀❁ Tigerlily ❁❀✿

            So sorry to hear that Chacha, but so happy & grateful you are healthy & here to share your wit with us!

          • chacha1

            and the most fearful experience that no one should have to go thru …

    • Birdie11

      I think men or women can just love it as any other sport.

      • WestCoastFeed

        This is a particularly and peculiarly self-absorbed sport.

        • Birdie11

          I don’t fully understand it…but I do push my body thru pain regularly to fit into my jeans…so maybe I do just a smidge…lol.

    • chacha1

      and are full of steriods in some cases ….

  • I loved the Gorga’s in that fake scene breaking ground. HAHAHAHA!!! They’re just as fake as their sister, Tre. Why do people make fools of themselves on these shows. LMAO!

  • distressed

    Thanks BeachSpin for another wonderful recap of a truly vile show.

    • BeachSpin

      Thank you…I think? 😀

      • distressed

        Sorry.

        • BeachSpin

          No apologies!! I AGREE with you!! 🙂

  • chacha1

    Melissa don’t forget to make Teresa some sprinkle cookies for her college dorm aka prison

  • chacha1

    ….. where is that old hag lizard faced Kim D ….. running with the “big boys” LOL or is she stuck up Teresa azz and that is why we don’t see the skeeze

    • Dave

      Hahaha. your comments are cracking me up.

    • DLister

      Hi, Chacha! Kim D was actually (don’t barf) named as one of NJ’s most influential women in this month’s New Jersey Monthly, as the owner of “Pohsche.” That’s how they spelled it. I almost threw the issue into the fire.

      • chacha1

        Hi D …. LOL OMG No !!!

      • RonnieIsBack

        Dayum…that says a lot about Jersey…IJS

    • RonnieIsBack

      Shredding her chit…

  • DLister

    This season was characterized by Melissa being absolutely useless and vapid. Plus her spastic dancing as though she was on some type of happy pill.

    • Birdie11

      YES!! She bugged the living crap out of me…her wisdom of Solomon talking heads made me want to spew.

    • WestCoastFeed

      I think it is just her relief at not being involved in family drama this season.

    • chacha1

      OMG she was dancing like a wigged out maniac … was it this episode ????

    • RonnieIsBack

      she was becasue Tre was going to jail…

      • Babson_Chick

        yes, Tre in prison = lots of camera time for Miss On Display (barf)

  • chacha1

    how do you like the way Dina tried to blame the dog for farting …. and what is up with that large stone head in front of the courthouse it is creepy

    • WestCoastFeed

      It’s Lady Justice. See the blindfold?

      • chacha1

        Thanks WCF 🙂 it sure looks creepy though, I had no clue it was a Lady … looked like a man with no eyes

  • chacha1

    On ROL it is reported that the renter of Joe Gorga’s broken down house has moved out because he couldn’t take the water leaks, beavers in the wall, backup sewage etc …. so if the Gorga’s have to move back what will be funny is when Joe Gorga starts doing his disgusting ‘hump dance’ maybe a big old beaver will jump out of the wall and bite his stanky azz

    • WestCoastFeed

      I expect that the grifter took his imaginary beavers with him when he left.

      • chacha1

        was that a lie, Iheard about the beaver issue a few months ago and then ROL mentioned that along with other horrible things going on with that house from hell … we even saw his so called granite sink crumble like dust ….

        • RealitytvJunkie

          I remember that scene and could not believe they showed the house in that condition.

    • Babson_Chick

      beavers in the wall – that’s a new one for me

    • RealitytvJunkie

      I didn’t realize the house was in such deplorable conditions.

  • RonnieIsBack

    Beach Spin I salute you…great recaps!!!!!!
    My eyes were burining with that dayum HDTV – Tre’s makeup..she really forgot to take the meds that night..I was like DA Faq?
    Love the segment with Amber and Jim and when she donated her hair. That actually was beautiful and the sentiments of her mom and her daughter and Jim were real. #Bravo
    Dina/Gonzo..chit even the damn dogs were bored with her…
    Love the Oct 2nd fill ins..that chit was real…I couldn’t imagine waiting with the world about the fate of my fambly, friends, spattlered all on tv about GOING TO PRISION..NOT AWAY…
    Bobby and Nicole…that was true to form..they just don’t give a phuck.
    The twins win for tackiest bookends in the history of tv…
    Rino with his self-righteous azz..I can’t with him. #MuthaPhucka

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie! And I salute YOU for your comments…they are among my all time FAVES!

  • Babson_Chick

    This show is getting too heavy for me i.e. Tre’s quotes: “We are living – this is life” AND “I’m not stupid”.

    • HAHAHAHA! O M G! This made me burst out laughing.

      • Babson_Chick

        Hi Doc!! Glad to hear that it made you laugh – that’s always a good thing!!

  • michey

    This Jersey bunch have really shown nothing but how crazy all of them are! All are into some sort of money crazy shenanigans! Love the blog by the way!

  • michey

    I say the Gorga’s will move back in their old house and never built the new one

    • WestCoastFeed

      They have already said that they will move back in.

      • chacha1

        ewwwwe can you imagine the mess those beavers left in the walls .. eke, I bet the fool Gorga will commit arson saying that the tenant crossed some wires or the beavers ate thru the wiring

  • Another great recap! This episode made me roll my eyes so hard they almost fell out of my head. The whole set up bravo did. By making us think that Tre was going to table flip. To make it look like the episode was going to be remotely interesting. Ughhh. Again. Who made the twins queen of this show. They have really gotten on my last and final nerve. Ironically during the finale. 😀
