Here we gooooo..it’s part two of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and Bravo kicks off the show with a blast from the past giggle for all us viewers. We are treated to a flashback of Teresa’s old persona…you know…the flat chested version whose favorite hobby was spending stolen money. I barely recognize her anymore…because the petty stuff doesn’t matter to her, and priorities such as cleavage and fistfuls of cash are a thing of the past. Much of the cast looks as if they are trying to fix their minds on visuals such as murdered puppies, to keep from breaking out in uproarious laughter. Teresa expresses frustration that coming on the show for a good time wasn’t supposed to land her in the slammer, and she is feeling gypped.

We flash back to the good ol days with Kim G, Kim D, Danielle, and of all the other gals who can claim a shred of credit for the careening Teresa downfall. Teresa lovingly warns the other women whom she is preparing to leave behind, to watch out for interlopers invited by Bravo, who can bring on an irresistible cravings to flip tables and shove reunion hosts. Sympathetic condolences are extended to Joe for the unexpected loss of his father, which has triggered Joe to habits such as “dazing off” and drinking like a fish…which I am guessing occurs right before the “dazing off.” We continue down memory lane with the Giudice children and relive Milania’s Greatest Hits of horrifying moments, Gia’s most memorable eye rolls, and the  obvious background reality of the sweaty wads of money that it took to maintain the four overindulged Giudice divas.

Andy asks Joe if he blames himself for the legal nightmare, and he responds with a confident, “well yeah, you know.” We flash back on the dramatically funereal October sentencing day, and Teresa explains that she basically didn’t even know what state she was in. Teresssa tells Teresa that among all of the imprisoned Italians she knows, her heart breaks for her most, but it instantly heals every time she remembers her pal, Vicky Gotti. Nicole schools Teresa about the importance of listening to “‘torneys,” while Teresa defends herself by clarifying that she just didn’t understand exactly which “T” she was crossing. Andy reads a statement by Judge Salas spoken in court to Teresa about her ‘getting it’ and Teresa assures us that YES, she absolutely does, except for that still confusing and unanswered question as to why she has to miss Milania’s February birthday party.

We are reminded of Rino and Teresssa’s love story, breakup, divorce, long separation, and remarriage and how he looks in extremely disturbing bikini underwear. Teresssa admits that she is either really smart or really dumb (I vote dumb) for remarrying someone who wears frightening bottoms like that. Teresssa emphatically asserts that when they were apart, Rino dated YOUNG strippers…hear that? Young…NOT OLD… and sort of related was just not at ALL his type.

We learn briefly about Nicole’s past marriage and breakup, and her current TV love interest, Bobby Ciasulli is introduced. They claim to have been together a year and a half, and Nicole thinks that she expects an engagement ring…and that’s a definite for sure if they are picked up by Bravo for another season. Andy practically quotes All About the Tea when he questions Bobby’s fake, middle class image, and Amber indicates that Nicole just doesn’t do middle class. Teresa lovingly comments that the twins remind her of her old self, except with ginormous flotation devices strapped to their chests…forgetting that she earlier defined her old self as being a frivolous ninny. Nicole assures us that Bobby is heterosexual, while we fondly remember that touching vacation moment when he jumped Joey Gorga, and planted a big wet one on him.

The show returns from a break, and the rest of the men have taken their seats in the Bravo bleachers. Rino, Bobby and the breakout star of the season, Jim Marchese have arrived, and Amber kicks things off by announcing that her dreamboat hubby has an a**hole problem, which incites spontaneous cast applause. They go back and forth about law degrees, income, silver spoons, Twitter addictions, and general disdain for Jim. We relive the traumatic moment at the stripper themed, First Responders party, and Amber’s hair yank, which was what triggered Jim’s transformation from a lil’ cutie pie to a scorched earth, defender beast.  

Amber and Nicole drearily argue about whether or not Nicole is a homewrecker, and Amber rats out Bobby for spilling his true feelings to her that he really just wanted a couple of glazed, not a trashy girlfriend.  Nicole responds by adjusting her breasts in her dress, and realigning her back arch.  Amber continues by remarking that if Bravo had shot down Bobby’s Mr. Sexy bio submission, he was planning to run like the wind so fast that Nicole would be left spinning like a top on her Dunkin Donuts stool.

Jim whips out a file of Bobby’s most treasured Housewife Groupie photos, and nails him as a fame whore. Bobby argues that he was just in the neighborhood and happened to run into five different “Housewives.” The brawl and arguable ambush on Amber’s hair is rehashed, and Dina opens up a can of that failed creative genius she’s famous for and labels Jim a “mangina.”

Joey gets furious with Jim for reminding him of the vile names that he called his own sister, while Joe chuckles in the background and…. CUT.  One more week to go…hang in there with me!

  • Yme

    Why are baby’s teeth so WHITE!! Wow!

  • Yme

    Teresa has changed so much in the last couple years! This show has really aged her!

    • gummybearlady

      Stress!

    • ImSayinIt

      I have joked for years that Andy and Bravo are the devil.
      The things they have done and set people up to crash. It is unbelievable! However, their are still masses that would kill, steal and destroy to get on the show and we are still not only tuning in but invested in the loons. lol

  • Bonita Gee

    Why do the men seem more catty and bitchy than the women at the Reunion? …………. and Teresa Giudice seems like she’s just OVER it all. I don’t think she cares about the show or any of this stuff any more.. Can’t blame her though.

    • Because they are! The one thing I always like about Chris Laurita and Albert Manzo, despite their other faults, they weren’t involved much in all this BS. And Teresa is going to the pokey for 15 months. I agree, I wouldn’t care either.

      • ImSayinIt

        I agree, Breanna. Chris, Al and even Joe spoiled us by just playing a supporting role in front of cameras so when we began seeing new husbands more desperate for attention than some of the wives? It was beyond insane!
        Chris was portrayed so favorably on RHONJ, I was shocked to learn all his misdeeds, and he himself stands a good chance of going away for a federally funded vacay with Jac.
        If Joe Gorga and Dick Wakile have done nothing illegal in their financial dealings, I would be thunderstruck. Yet, they thought it was a good idea to get in front of cameras despite seeing how that worked out for the Guidices and now Lauritas.
        These people, if nothing else, should make us all feel good about ourselves. lol

        • Exactly! Very well put. It’s scary to actually think that the “men” of the family, the one who are traditionally the providers, are more famewhorish than their wives. When this show used to be organic feeling, Joe did his thing, so did Albert and Chris. They didn’t want to be front and center, didn’t have a desire to be. Joe Gorga on the other hand sold his own sister up the river just to be on the show, now you have Bobby “dating” Nicole … or is it Teresssa? just to be a little bit famous. That blows my mind.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      I don’t think Teresa is over it – I think she is seething with rage and bitterness because it is everyone else’s fault she’s where she is including Bravo. She really does blame the show.

    • RonnieIsBack

      She isn’t over it..she is just pissed she is going –away.
      If she would have gotten house arrest, her attitude would have been extremely different. That bish is foul. #GoodRiddance

  • Jim brought the receipts but he didn’t do a good job at articulating himself, more than likely because he knows a bit too much, and was afraid that Andy might clock his tea, which he does when he doesn’t want you spilling all of Bravo’s tea. With that said however, I am glad that Bobby is being called out. No one on this cast is a prize pony, but I just have a hard time processing how someone who is really rich, (finally), pretends not to be.

    • RonnieIsBack

      I agree but this was his first reunion and it was Jim against everybody..He got the truth out there which was funny as hell..the look on Bobby’s face…

      • Bobby wouldn’t even answer the question. When I’m being accused of something, I become Fact Checker #1. He knows what is being said about him is true, which is why he tried to deflect so much and make Jim look like the crazy one. Jim may stalk his Twitter more than Jacqueline, but I don’t think he’s wrong when he talks about Bobby.

    • BOOM! Spot on, Bre!!

    • BeachSpin

      Heck YES!!

  • TartLemon

    Teresa is such a LIAR. She claims not to know anything about the legal stuff, but checks Joe when he starts talking about it. I don’t cut her any slack. This reunion was filmed a couple of days of sentencing. Teresa was still in shock so probably drugged.

    Zoom fast forward to RIGHT NOW. In less than 2 months, Teresa will be locked up for more than a year. Being the bread winner, she won’t be able to make payments on the faux manse, pay taxes, see that insurance gets paid… etc. She will, however be able to hear the progress of all this, maybe even seeing a news item about her kids being kicked to the curb by sheriffs; all their junk tossed out for trash pickup NOTHING carefully packed. As a Federal PRISONER, Teresa will not have any means to help. No whiny calls to the bank, tax office, utility companies, etc….

    Even if the house is not repo’d, if it’s sold, they won’t be able to live there until the incarceration is over. Has Teresa made any attempts at downsizing? I mean REAL attempts. Not the faux ones filmed for the series.

    • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

      Everything that comes out of Teresa’s mouth is a lie. She said right after saying she didn’t understand about getting prison time that she was thankful to the judge for giving them some time at home because she knows she could have taken them there and then. She can’t keep it straight. Hilarious that she is trying now to blame Bravo.

      • TartLemon

        Andy’s eating it up. He’s entirely too close to the situation to be objective. I’ve always defended AC when others have completely dismissed him. I always found his attention to Gia a bit unsettling. For a long time there was not a WWHL he didn’t mention her or show that runway video. Never pervy Just very weird. It made me stop watching for a long time.

        I have no idea what kind of pull AC has at Bravo since the demotion, but I’ve read different accounts of whether they are filming the HWNJ.

        Really pisses me off Bravo has been bankrolling these CRIMINALS.

        • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

          Andy seems to be really drawn to tragic circus act HWs like Teresa, Tamra, Brandi etc. He loves it from a weird voyeristic way but he doesn’t actually seem to like them as women. I can’t stand the idea that Bravo will continue to work with the Giudices but Andy did act like it was Teresa’s last reunion and also questioned her when she said she would continue to work to pay off the debts – like he knew there was no more work for her.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Dina tells someone on twitter that she was desperate for someone other than Teresa to be real on the couch and that they’re all worried what people will think and yet she is the one telling them all to be quiet and put on a phony front when it comes to the truth about Teresa?!! I am so sick of Dina telling people how they should act and feel – be honest, but not when it comes to Teresa. Speak up, but not when it’s about Teresa. This woman is beyond idiotic.

  • TheBeverlyHillsHaveEyes

    Oh and thanks again for the recap Beach Spin 🙂 brilliant as always.

    • BeachSpin

      Awww shucks, thanks!!

  • TartLemon

    I did like that Jim called BS on Dina’s ZEN thing.

    I think Teresa was still in shock, drugged, depressed. I don’t remember the judge saying Joe was responsible for what Teresa did. Did the Judge say that? Since this was filmed before Teresa got the new lawyer, Is she still blaming the other lawyers?

    • RonnieIsBack

      When Jim called Dina out on her Zen BS…genius!

    • Dave

      She’s still blaming the lawyers and you’re correct, the judge never said Joe is responsible for Teresa’s crimes.

  • Jersey

    Tanks for the recap Beach. :0)
    I’m happy Jim called out Bobby for being a famewhore. He looked so embarrassed. I believe everything Jim and Amber are saying. It’s ridiculous that the twins don’t believe Bobby would have spoke to J & A about women he dated. They were all friends for years.

    • Can you spell B-U-S-T-E-D!! Bobby turned red and he was pissed. The guilt was written all over his face. I do believe the twins know that Amber is telling the truth but they’ll never admit it publicly.

      • RonnieIsBack

        Hey Doc!
        Of course Dumb and Dumber will deny this until they are Grey Gardens old…they still won’t admit Reno told VG about Santa…(true or not he said it and they know it)

        • Hey sugah! 🙂

          Exactly. I really hope Bravo drops them all next season. The fake relationship is just too much for me to bear. Happy Friday!!!

  • RonnieIsBack

    LOVED IT GREAT RECAP BEACH! I found it hilarious that Juicy was laughing too while Joey tried to take up for his sister, with tear, reminiscing about how she threw my toys out so I called her scum! And dumbazz Teresa co-sigining that chit. THERE WERE NO TOYS PRESENT WHEN HE CALLED YOU GARBAGE.
    Bravo is hilarous with their clips of Liar Liar..the montage of Tre and all her theiving spending..you know the prosecutors office used this chit.
    Bobby the Mitch…dude just run to the bathroom. You were SERVED last night and the entired world saw it. What does Daddy think now?
    Gonzo (Dina) just continues to irk me…her flat oneliners are horrid and she needs to just take her bit bouffant weave and go…

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks Ronnie!! YES…SERVED indeed!! Dina tries to be clever…she just doesn’t have it in her.

  • DLister

    Andy is like the modern day PT Barnum with his freaks and oddities.

    • BeachSpin

      LOL!! Exactly!!

    • LOL– Yep…another American Horror Story Freak Show!

  • nan/4

    There is no one on the show from the original cast that I’m a fan of. As far as this new group? I’m even LESS of a fan, if that’s possible. IMO, the entire cast should be gone, and the show revamped. There must be another group of people in the state of New Jersey who don’t break the law, have character, don’t have tremendous outbursts of temper, know how to actually speak english, and who have men (husbands) who act like men and not teenage girls. Sorry folks, but I am SOOOO over this group. They are cringeworthy, imo.

    I hope that everyone has a very nice weekend. 🙂

    I thank-you Beach Spin for another great recap!

    • Kat

      I agree, but even if there were a crop of people in NJ with those characteristics, BRAVO wouldnt hire them, because they only want to endorse criminals and shady people. so sad

    • Morning Nan….I agree with all your points made here. But Jim cracks me up. I do not like however when he fights with women. When he exposed Bobby that was comical. A revamp of the cast is needed. I agree.

      Happy Friday Nan!

      • nan/4

        Morning Doc and Happy Friday to you! I’m glad that Jim “outed” Bobby for the louse that he is, but as far as Jim is concerned, he lost me at the bogus cancer drugs. JMO. :-/

        Be well honey! 😉

        • Morning Nan….Thank God the weekend is finally here. I’m wiped out this week.

          And yes, you are correct about Jim and the Cancer drug scandal.

    • BeachSpin

      You’re welcome and thank u Nan…how about an IQ test and a reading with a few 3 syllable words in them, as part of the application process?

      • nan/4

        LOL!!!! That would work!

        I hope you’ve been well sweetie! 😉

    • Bathroom Bobby

      I agree get rid of all of them and maybe Bravo should do a little back ground check on the people they hire. They’re all criminals in one way or another IMO

  • Kat

    I don’t like the way Jims says, what he says, but he always makes a point. They way he called our Joe was priceless. I thought he would also mention when Juicy called Tre a c**t.

    • Birdie11

      Believe it or not, I do think there are lines Jim won’t cross…I don’t think they will be obvious to the viewer…but I do think that there is a heart behind the mouth.

  • colleen

    Oh..so THAT’S what Juicy said to Andy about feeling responsible. I played it over and over and it was still Greek to me . Nicole actually offered Bobby is a Volunteer Firefighter and not the well decorated captain he led us to believe. Thereessaa’s swollen breasts looked like they were used as a punching back. AATT, thanks again for keepin’ us in the loop

    • BeachSpin

      I just tried to capture the spirit behind the mumbling.

  • nan/4

    I was watching Tre very carefully last night, and every time Andy Cohen said the word “criminal” she actually sunk down in her seat, made a face, and shuddered. Hey Tre! Get with the program…THAT’S WHAT YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND ARE!!!!!!

    Geesh. :-/

    • RealitytvJunkie

      Hi Nan. Good to see you posting again.

      I noticed that also. It’s as if she doesn’t want anyone to acknowledge or talk about it, because every time someone mentions her being a criminal, I think it triggers validation in her mind. I feel she believes if she doesn’t hear or think about her sentence, it will all go away. She’s a fascinating creature to study.

      • nan/4

        I think you nailed it Reality!!!! And thanks. It’s good to be back.

        Take good care! 😉

    • She’s still in total denial of the situation and she was also drugged up to numb the pain. Tre thinks the reunion was bad, wait until the night before her surrender day and the day of her surrender. OMG! I hope Bravo captures all of that. All her little brats and midget husband surrounding her crying. LMAO!!! That’s going to be MUST-SEE TV.

    • Bathroom Bobby

      Convicted Felons on the way to the Big House Clink Clink! New jewelry from the Feds for Teresa! Happy Days!

      • Ahahahahaha!!

        Hey Bathroom Bobby. Happy Friday! 🙂

        • Bathroom Bobby

          Happy Friday to you also!

  • MASSGIRL8

    That recap made me lol several times. Thanks for that

    • BeachSpin

      Then my job is done. 😀

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Thank you for another hilarious recap, Beach. I see Teresa is still not accepting responsibility for her crimes/actions. She’s still lying and blaming her accountants and lawyers. I could not believe she said she didn’t understand what she was signing. It was nice that Nicole pointed out that her attorney went over her financial disclosure papers and plea with her so there is no way she didn’t know what she was signing.

    • BeachSpin

      YW Reality…I think Tre is far more angry at Joe than she’s letting on. She won’t blame him publicly so anyone else is fair game.

  • Janice Marie

    This epicode goes to show you how desperate Nicole is to be married. I know a lot of women like her and it is so sad to see someone settle like that. She has to know that Amber and Jim are telling the truth – they really have no reason to lie.

    • BeachSpin

      Bam…such a good point…NO motive for lying exists here. No one on those couches is smart enough to point that out. Remember Nicole said that she hates change…too emotionally and intellectually lazy to face the truth.

    • Dave

      I think Nicole knows. What shocked me last night was Andy asking is Bobby gay and Nicole saying the thought has crossed her mind. Sounds like she may be nothing more than Bobby’s beard.

  • Birdie11

    While Jim’s delivery tends to go snotty…he and Amber are the ones in that group who aren’t trying to cover their tracks in some way. They have no reason to lie…and exposing the truth is more than enough to do the trick.

    • Dave

      I agree. Both Jim and Amber have no motive to lie or make up stuff about Bobby. He’s just not that important.

    • dj j

      oh I think if they stay on the show, there are going to be stories about Jim that are even more horrendous than the ones we’ve already heard. It was bad enough he gleefully came up with a scheme to make $ off thousands of cancer patients, and then got paid for turning them in after he got fired, but he has a long shady past. He was involved in the mortgage business when nobody was turned down and mortgage brokers would alter incomes with no proof, because mortgages were sliced up, repackaged and sold as securities. It is amazing that so many got away with making millions and tanking our entire economy. He has no right to act so high and mighty about the Giudices, they were just idiots. Millions of americans used their houses as a way to get thousands and millions to refinance, go on buying sprees, and then after they got 120% of the worth of their house, had no problem giving it to the bank. I think with his attitude, people that knew him in the past will come out of the woodwork and expose him.

      • BeachSpin

        But he’s a kind of a cute little fella…dreamboat Jim.

    • ImSayinIt

      You may be right but don’t forget, Bravo loves positioning newbies as being above the usual “housewife” standard, only to obliterate them in later seasons.
      It’s going to be interesting to see their future.

  • Dave

    Does anyone else think Bobby is closeted, hiding a secret?

    • CoinkaDinka

      I certainly do!

      • Hey doll…Happy Friday!

        • CoinkaDinka

          Hi Seuss! Happy Friday to you too!

    • Birdie11

      Very real possibility.

    • Here here! That lip lock with Joe Gorga on the beach was VERY questionable and not normal behavior for a straight man.

    • Bathroom Bobby

      I do

  • Trippinhhard

    Great recap, @BeachSpin your recaps ate the best, can’t watch this shitfest..
    Teresa is still acting like she was innocent and she’s angry with the world ans it’s showing..
    I bet she’s seething and a royal bitch at home, there’s no way she can control her temper too long.. She’s best to check that attitude before going to prison, there is always someone waiting to push your buttons.. You are the newbie.

    • Bathroom Bobby

      If Teresa checks into the Federal Pen with her attitude I’m sure some of her new roommates will adjust her attitude with the quickness.

      • Trippinhhard

        That’s exactly what this sickening woman needs, an attitude adjustment quickly.. Yall was stealing long before HWS, hws just showed how dumb and stupid she was… Now just get ready for the big house or as she says college..
        I hope she take some classes in college. .. JS

        • Bathroom Bobby

          She sure was loving it when the camera’s captured her dropping 130K on furniture. Not so much now LOL

          • Trippinhhard

            I got raked over the coals, run off the NJ thread because I said from day one, they theives, there is no way ppl with money spend like Teresa did…she was spending like there was a money tree in the back yard, like it was running water.. She still don’t get it, it’s her own damn fault, she’s goung to jail..she did not show the court, she changed nothing, so she got off good to me… JMTC

    • BeachSpin

      Thanks so much Trippin and I don’t blame you for not watching. I’m happy to take the bullet for ya, and appreciate you reading!!

      • Trippinhhard

        Thank you for making it enjoyable to read about these felons.. Now we await Apollo and Fhedra scandal.

        • BeachSpin

          YW..and Yep…they are next in line….can’t wait. :0

  • nan/4

    Just a little nan/4 factoid. Before watching any of the HW shows, I have never heard anyone say the word “vagina” on television. I don’t think so anyway. What the he!! is up with these people? It’s like every other word!!!!! Just sayin’….

    Can’t wait until the next installment where we get to hear about a “whales vagina!!!!” OY!!! 😉

    • Such a classy bunch of people we’re dealing with the Jersey crew. I recall when Dynasty used the word “bitch” for the first time and I was SHOCKED….taken aback. That was in the 80’s and words like that weren’t used on TV. To me that was the gateway and now anything goes.

      • nan/4

        OMG! You’re right Doc! I remember hearing the word “bitch” used on Dynasty too! You could have knocked me over with a feather! 😮 But for some reason, the people on the HW franchise are stuck on “f–k “and “vagina.” Yup a classy group indeed!!!! LOL!!!!! 😉

        • OMG!! I am a HUGE Dynasty fan and I remember distinctly, Jeff yelling “Biiiiiiiitch” as Fallon’s casket is lowered into her grave. I gasped!!!!

          • nan/4

            YES!!!! That was the scene!!!!!!!

          • Weren’t those the good ole days of TV? Dynasty on Wednesday nights and Dallas on Friday with Falcon Crest to follow. Oh and I can’t forget my LOVE, Knots Landing on Thursdays.

          • nan/4

            Doc!!!! Knots Landing was my all-time favorite!!!! I have to see if I can buy the series now!!!! 🙁

          • YES!! Mine too. Remember Valine and her split personality? And good ole reliable Karen and the original sexy bitch, Donna Mills….yes honey! Ms. Mills werked!!!!!

          • nan/4

            Oh Yeah, Valine!!!! And who was that tall blond guy with the long straight nose? I think that he was connected to Donna Mills character?? OMG…..She was a vixen! Oh, and I loved..what was her name…Michelle Lee was it? Wow. What a trip down memory lane. I agree with both you and Birdie. These shows were the predecessor to today’s reality shows. I like the old days much better!!!! WAAAA….

          • Birdie11

            Hey Nan…I’m good…glad to see you!! Ted Shackelford…Garrrry…I never knew why he was considered attractive…but he made a great drunk.

          • He was the best drunk….OMG! I loved this show. I wanted to name my first born Nicolette Sheridan. LOL!

          • Birdie11

            She was so GORGEOUS….I loved her…and I also loved Falon from Dynasty.

          • nan/4

            LOLOLLL!!!!!!

          • nan/4

            Ted Shackelford! How do you remember his name? Wow…..you’re good! Yes, Gary! I never understood why women went nuts over him either. I MUST see if they have the series on DVD. I miss those days so much Birdie.

            I’m glad that you’re doing well. Keep it up! 😉

          • You’re not alone. I miss them too. Nothing compares now.

          • GARY!!! He was the catalyst for Knots Landing. He’s a “Union” and cousin to JR. Union that was moved to Cali because of his drinking problem. He moved to Cali with his country wife, Valine and that’s how the show “Knots Landing” started…it was a spin-off of Dallas. He eventually cheated on Valine with Abby Cunningham (Donna Mills).

          • nan/4

            YUP! What a memory you have there Doc! 🙂

          • Thanks Nan. Knots Landing was the ultimate in prime time soap operas for me. LOVED this show.

          • Bathroom Bobby

            Ted is on The Young and the Restless and Donna is on General Hospital now

          • Oh wow! For them to still be working (in the business) is a testament to their talent. Thanks for the update.

          • Cathyrid

            Gary was the third Ewing brother. Lucy was his and Valene’s daughter. Why can I remember that but not what I did yesterday? Oh well.

          • DoneWithBravo

            Val’s “husband”, Gary, is currently on “The Young & The Restless” playing a sleazy character. He aged quite a bit!

            Really? Wow. Well, at least he’s still a working actor!

            I hope you have a very nice Sunday, DWB! 🙂

            I loved Dynasty, Falcon Crest, Dallas, Knots Landing…they were all the pot like gateway drug to the heroin of the Housewife series!!

          • nan/4

            Me too Birdie!!! How are you honey? Good I hope! 😉

            I was just at FIloli last weekend. I live nearby and go over all the time just to walk the gardens. The house of course is amazing, but the gardens are usually beautiful. Especially in the spring when they are filled with nearly every color and type of tulip. Breathtakingly gorgeous. And, yes the reflecting pool where the “big” Alexis vs. Crystal fight is as beautiful as on tv, in fact even more so. But, the tulips are a sight everyone should get the chance to see. I know other places that do the same tulip type display, but the back drop if the buildings really set the tone.

          • Pinky Pie

            FIloli was the “Dynasty” house. It appeared in many films. Recently, I noticed the gardens in a Reese Withersppon movie, “Just Like Heaven.”

          • Thanks for sharing. The grounds were breathtaking. The perfect house for that large family.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    F’n FameWHORE Bobby!

    TG Jim called him out…everyone DID see the Bobby & Ramona pic too, right? Guess Bobby ‘happened’ to be out shopping for wine that day…haha, this guy is SUCH a loser!

    • A big FAT loser with big denture teeth. OMG…his teeth had a life of it’s own last night. You could see the look of embarrassment on his face. LMAO!!!

      • WaWaWaWHAT!

        I could see the look of embarrassment reflecting off dem teef…. LOL
        Hey hun 🙂

        • TEEF! <— ROFLMAO!!!!!!!

          Happy Friday, WWW! 🙂

          • WaWaWaWHAT!

          Between Bobby’s teeth and RIno’s shiny head all was almost blinded

  • Bathroom Bobby

    No surprise Teresa is still in denial. Melissa won’t say anything for fear Amber will tell all her dirty secrets from years ago. The twins are annoying as hell. Bobby is a first class loser all the way and there is no way he’ll propose to Nicole. I’m not a fan of Jim however, his little contracts with the newbies are obviously keeping them quiet about his dirty deeds. Amber is really as nasty as her husband. I heard no denial of Santagate so there you go with that. Sure Bobby just happened to be where all those HW were to take pics. Dina may be the nastiest most vile bitch to ever be on a Bravo show. The two Joe’s pretty much showed they reunion was a complete joke to them. And part 3 is next Tuesday

    • RonnieIsBack

      Melissa was hemmed up on that couch..Amber to her right was like “say something I will tell about the guy you phucked around with on Joey” and Joey was behind her like “bish say something about my sistah and I will conduct rapey poison on ya” and she was tryign not to rub up againt Tre for fear her orange chit spray tan would get on her white dress….

    • TartLemon

      I don’t know that Melissa has any more skeletons in her closet than Amber does. IMO, it’s a wash. If Amber starts in on Melissa, Melissa will drop a bomb or 2.

  • Bathroom Bobby

    One of the best parts for me was Jim talking to Dina about her Zen! It was priceless

    • RonnieIsBack

      Yass he was like BS ON THAT ZEN CHIT.

  • TartLemon

    There have been no items about Teresa downsizing. If she was, there is absolutely no doubt Teresa would sell it to the tabs. Anything for a $$$.

    Teresa is incarcerated for over a year. The house is on the market. Even if the house is sold (not foreclosed), the new purchasers will not want to support the property for a year and a half until Teresa is paroled. From prison, she will have absolutely NO way to do anything about finding new digs for the Family.

    Foreclosed or sold or court ordered forfeiture, they must move!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Mellissa had me dying when she pipped up and whispered to Tre “ooh you need to warn him about not mentioning money on the show.” Tre looked like she would have back-handed her if she wasn’t so drugged up.
    Andy really drilled her ass too…”did you get it…get what?” Funny chit. The reunion was after their soft interview following the sentencing…she thought she was in the clear but Andina just wanted them there so he could really get into dat azz..especially since she is blaiming Bravo for her troubles…

    • Trippinhhard

      I know missy did tell that to Teresa… LMAO

      • dj j

        and Missy better do that herself. I think it is funny while Joe keeps saying he wants to go big, she keeps telling us that she prefers a “cozy house”, kind of preparing us for next season, when they downsize to a 1200 sq ft ranch the rest of us are happy to live in

        • Trippinhhard

          There is nothing wrong with a small home, our home is too big now that the twins are gone.. Melissa and Joey better get a grip and build something they can afford. I don’t ever want to live in homes that size, too much work and the cost to operate, too much for my middle class ways..

          • msmcdonjm

            Hey trip, those homes are way too big, and not warm..their b.rm is bigger than my whole apt. I was raised in a home with 1 b.rm, 2 bedrm. and 4 kids. Six people with one bathrm. We had a good life, it didn’t seem tight. It’s what it is..those homes are so big there is an echo when people talk. ridiculous.

          • Trippinhhard

            Touché it doesn’t take a big house to be happy. I would be too worried about all those bills.. Just too much drama, money problems.. I want to enjoy what I have..

  • ZammyB

    This is funny! I loved that he pulled out the pics…come on! How isn’t that hilarity? I don’t love the Marcheses but I think they stole the show.

    • RonnieIsBack

      And I think Andy liked it too..when Gonzo (Dina) was like “I thought we couldn’t bring props” Andy shot her down with “These aren’t props, they’re evidence!” I though he would do a two snaps as he rolled his eyes and dismissed her. LOL

  • Susie Whats Her Name

    OT Someone please tell me. Will Joe get to visit Teresa in prison since he’s a convicted felon? And what about after she/he is released. Will they be allowed to be around each other. I think there are rules for felons on probation hanging around each other.

  • She Stinks!

    Does AATT still do the Saturday Funnies? I miss those.

    • All About The Tea

      We’ve taken a break, hopefully, we’ll resume in the future. Thanks for asking and check out Lola B. Shadee’s weekly wrap-up every Friday.

  • Guest

    The photos are very telling. Teresa is so over this reunion while the others are grasping for relevancy.

  • HJStrang

    Oh paleeezzzze! Teresa Giudice is so full of it! I’m so sick of her bs “new” self! And Joe Giudice is just a drinking, sleeping zombie! NO WAY is he going to be able to care for his children while wifey is wearin’ the stripes! Jim Marchese – he’s a complete A$$! He’s more of a busy buddy than my grandmother ever was! I’ve NEVER seen a man so overly involved in a chick group who spewed so much crap he drools brown! The rest of the tribe are just going with the flow. Bitchin’ and moanin’, laughin’ and cryin’. BTW …Melissa Gorga is the ONLY “lady” of class on this show; and while hubby Joe Gorga isn’t Mr. Perfect, he’s a hell more of a man than the rest of the guys.

    • dj j

      Melissa gorga? huh??…I expect her and Joey to be indicted next…..

      • msmcdonjm

        naaaaah

    • msmcdonjm

      Holy smokes…that phrase just dated me..anyway yes, I agree. I kept saying this about her all season, and more so during the reunion. everything else was funny..love how u wrote it. BTW I love ur pic..Jesus on the cross..am I wrong? Always wore my pin on my hosp. uniforms.:)

  • Bonita Gee

    Oh Believe Teresa Giudice is OVER it………… the worst that has happened has happened WTF does she care to get into spats and squabbles with the other bitches on the show..All she has to do is serve her little 15 months and be DONE…………… Just sit back and let the GUYS bitch and fight and be catty for now….

    • msmcdonjm

      lol

  • Harleygirl0685

    I just love Jim and his folder of papers . He is too funny! He’s actually a breath of air compared to the rest of them!

    • Thank you!!! Yes, he is.

      • msmcdonjm

        Hi doll, I hope ur thanksgiving is full and wonderful..eat some pie for me, then I can have my piece..haha Saw the reunion pt. 3, don’t know how to get to that info. Help??

  • Cindy

    Teresa “Over it” hmmmm I’m sorry but she looks “MEDICATED” even the one of the pictures above where Amber and Melissa are caught in these funny faces and Teresa is sitting there like a Medicated Felon lol
