Our fearless host shares his survival tip.

J-E-L-L-Oh my, that must've been one stressful day.

This season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been full of emotional highs and lows, as a sibling rivalry evolved into an all out war between the Giudices and the Gorgas. But surely, after an emotional reconciliation facilitated by Dr. Venus Nicolino, there will be no shade-throwing at the reunion, right?

Signs might point to no. After a long day taping the RHONJ reunion Wednesday, Andy Cohen said he was "WIPED from all the drama," and tweeted a photo of himself relaxing with a much needed treat—a Jell-O champagne flute.

So what drama taxed him of his energy? We'll have to wait to see.

I am anxious to see the reunion in a way and again,  I think I may need to get some hard liquor in the house for that one.  Guess wine won't do it this time around.  I just viewed the preview of tonight's show and there goes Joey Gorga acting like a little kid again and throwing things.  Melissa, the B____ snubbed Teresa at the toast and acted like a baby the whole trip.  Blame your husband.  He planned it.  Oh Melissa, everyone is trying except YOU!.  Yep before the reunion show, I will be hitting the liquor store.

Personally I would like to know why Andy has called Joe Guidice out twice on "gay" comments but never says anything to Richie about his disgusting and degrading comments and tweets about women.

 

Play favorites much, Andy?

Andy, please ask Melissa Gorga why is it that she starts so much trouble with her friends in Jersey and when they fire back at her, then she runs to her husband to get Teresa to bail her out....?

I really hope he was more fair to Teresa than he has been in previous years!  Its starting to get sad and redundant! For realz! I mean it was bad enough Bravo brought her family aboard without even consulting her! And we all know they came with an agenda! It was very apparent to everyone! Bravo won't address the issue or acknowledge the issue! But most of us are tired of the big white elephant in the room! All we ever see is Teresa apologizing!! For what I'm not even sure??! Because I watch the show every Sunday and all I ever see are Teresa's family and supposed friends talking mad smack!! To the point its getting frustrating and disgusting!! I will watch the episode once but I definitely can't watch the reruns they make me too mad! as soon as they start trashing Teresa I literally have to turn the channel.... Sorry Bravo! I don't think you would do what you did to Teresa to any other housewife! You kind of had her between a rock and a hard place! Because you guys knew she needed the show financially! I'm pretty sure if you decided to bring NeNe"s family members aboard you one hundred percent unequivocally give her a heads up! and if you say otherwise your lying!

 @piperbeau  That's funny, I have seen all the episodes twice and all I have heard Teresa say is that she has nothing to apologize about. She has never apologized. Now granted, I think Kim D. is responsible for most of the stuff that keeps these two fighting. But Teresa has yet to just admit, she vented to Kim D and then Kim D put her hounds on Melissa Joe and even Jacqueline, and things just got very out of control. If she would just say that to him, he would forgive and then smack anyone that ever said anything about her or his wife again

 @piperbeau That was 100% right on!!! Andy Cohen I adore you, But seriously, enough is enough! Out of all the posts on Melissa's Blog, maybe 2 people ( must be her sisters ) like her..The rest of your viewers cant take it anymore!!! What happened to all the fun??? Please get rid of them! Why wont you show the video they made PROMISING TO DESTROY TERESA???

 @piperbeau Since when does an employer need to consult an employee when hiring people?  Bravo runs the show not Teresa.  As to Teresa always apologizing....not sure what program you are watching but I rarely see Teresa apologize for anything and the rare times she does it never appears sincere.

 @Marni511  Bravo won't even really acknowledge the way Teresa's family came on the show!! Its actually really sad for Teresa and her parents!! I rather doubt Mr. Gorga will ever speak to his sister before he dies! and thats really sad! and I kind of do blame Kathy for that!! She went there with Teresa's parents at the reunion! I thought it was disgusting!! I think Teresa's family did a great job at proving Teresa's point about why she didn't want her family to join the show! It has turned into a total sh*t fest..

 @book7175 The show I'm watching is rhonj on sunday nights! And yes all I ever see is Teresa apologizing! Geez! at this point Teresa is dammed if she does and dammed if she doesn't!  And by the way the policy in my company is no hiring relatives!! and actually that is the policy at a lot of companies!!  Give me a break its simple, its called Common courtesy!  Bravo owed it to Teresa to give her a heads up that they had hired her family members (who she doesn't necessarily get a long with) to join the show!! and they probably should of mentioned that her family promised to expose her...I'm just saying it would have been nice for Bravo to give Teresa a little heads up!! A simple courtesy call to Teresa would have been nice! Its called being a LOYAL employer!! Get it?

 @piperbeau  @Marni511 It was Teresa who brought her parents into the conversation, not Kathy.  Teresa stated that her mother said that Kathy and Rich almost got divorced.  It was Teresa who said that her father was more of a father to Kathy and her siblings than their own father.

@piperbeau @book7175 "Should of" is not actually English...it's "should have".

@book7175 @piperbeau All teresa has done this season is apologize and swallow her pride. I have never heard one apology come from melissa or joe. Remember who they are? The ones that called her garbage, scum, said her husband doesnt love her and cheats on her and also called her businesses stupid. And all on national tv, but wait..... It's teresa that is trying to take them down. Joe and melissa pretty much define "meathead" and "fame whore". I dont know of any other man thst would be so proud of being on a billboard for tanning. They are ridiculous!!!!! I cant even watch next season if this continues, and I too, cant watch reruns of this crap bc it just pisses me off. Thanks melissa

 @piperbeau As with everything, we have no idea how or why Bravo brought on Teresa's family, all we can do is guess.  We don't know that she wasn't told beforehand, she may claim that however, when can we ever believe what any of these housewives claim is true?  As to your analogy of this situation to company policies against hiring relatives,  I'm sure that doesn't apply to "Reality TV".  RHOBH has Kyle and Kim Richards, so this isn't the first time Bravo has hired relatives to appear on the same show.  Should the policy be different if the relatives don't get along....probably not.  These women know exactly what they are signing up for, so I have no sympathy for any of them.

 @piperbeau  @book7175 Teresa was told that Melissa and Kathy were going to be on the show.  Andy confirmed this.  That her family promised to expose her is an assumption on your part.  As for companies hiring relatives, that is up to them and many companies have no policy against it.

 

All you ever see is Teresa apologizing?  When?  Teresa very rarely apologizes for anything.  It's never her fault according to her.
