So if you're anything like the editors at Bravotv.com, the new "Family is a Force of Nature" promo for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 5 left you full of questions: Is Melissa burying the hatchet or digging up dirt? Does the J stand for Joe or Jacqueline in Teresa's carving? Why is Caroline so angry with that tree?
Well never fear -- we went into full-on Jessica Fletcher mode and broke down what we think all the Mother Nature moments mean in this in depth analysis. (And as people who have sampled Kathy's homemade cannoli before, we're pretty much the closest thing you'll find to a RHONJ expert.)
And if you haven't watched the promo yet WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR? Take a look and share your own theories on what it all means in the comments.
Ummmm I just hope Caroline is over her menopause and over trying to be relevant in Teresa's family. Caroline really has no reason to be upset with Teresa about anything besides the whole "cookbook drama" and who cares anyway... Yes Teresa will stick you where you stand if you come at her. But Teresa is so into herself and all about her own family and getting all the spotlight that she can careless to want to discuss Caroline in any interview unless a question was asked.. Caroline has invested most of her camera time the last two seasons talking and bashing Teresa... Soooo as far as I'm concerned Teresa is a "boss" of the show...
It figures Kathy is the one nurturing the tree & making it grow & Teresa is standing by her man even if it means having to share him with someone else. Caroline isn't family so the poor thing is disgusted & who could blame her??? As for Melissa & Jacqueline...good luck trying to bury the past!! I can't wait till the insanity begins!!
oh n must add......I really dont think Tre is delusional, I really believe she knows what her husband is up to...alot of woman believe that if they hang in there every thing will be ok...thats just being real...how many of you ladies that have found out something about your man you just dont want to believe, or refuse to believe or see, n if you think your man has never done wrong , I heard alone time ago that the only differance is either you know or you dont. or maybe your that one woman that has that one man that is totally faithful, good for you, but all life isnt that way...now gather your girls n have a conversation, bet you one or more in your group of friends will lie/keep their mouth shut, but feel the pain of a cheating man.....if not uuuu yea who is delusional.......an again that is real stuff
I dont see planting an olive branch n this sure is not a fairy tale , but we all have fair time to interpret how we see...Melissa has a really hateful look on her face an Jaq is Pounding the hell out of that ground placing that tree, also with a very hateful look, n Kathy is lookin smug n content while she waters, none of them have pleasant looks or gentle planting...aa yeano
If you look at this picture.....Teresa's family is on one side and Caroline's family is on the other side. I bet its the family tree and their splitting down the middle.
I'm bored with these real housewives same story,new season.Get rid of Theresa and bring on a new housewife,i use to like Theresa until she changed for the worst.
What this promo represents is basically Jacqueline and Melissa are making the moves to plant the olive branch/tree, Kathy is assisting by nurturing it/watering it, Teresa could care less about the gesture of it because all she is worried about is Joe, her hubby, and Caroline is sitting back watching her destroy what Kathy, Melissa, and Jacqueline tried to build. Therefore, this season is full of ups and downs but essentially things with Jacqueline and Teresa won't be mended and nothing truly with Kathy as well.
I don't know if this is a good thing or not (for me) last season I had to stop watching because of C... and K... and also J!
Hopefully this season won't be so hard to watch if they go at Teresa. I'm not saying Teresa is in the goody department but the way the others acted?? I guess I'll have to wait and see...
Im so ready for this , I love kathy, Melissa, jacqueline, caroline,Joe, chris and carolins childern, I hope the best for them stay classy yall , as for terese and joe, nothing, im sick and tired of her not owning up, to anything she does, I am going to watch to see her fall again and hope joe goes to jail, if it was a normal person they would go right to jail, Melissa, do your thing girl, take care of your hubby, I have been married 25 on april 22 been with him 30 it work daily but dont let Teresa come in and start bull shit this season. Love yall
I literally squealed when this promo came on tonight! (and that isn't easy for a 45 y/o guy)....the ladies look fantastic and Melissa (to me) looked like Jennifer Love Hewitt! Cannot wait for the new season!
Jaq and Melissa are up to no good. Caroline is on to Melissa and blames her for Jacs bad behavior. Kathy has bad intentions towards Teresa wrapped in sugar paper and the paper is unraveling. Teresa knows what she is walking into this season. I am most interested in seeing what she does.
I hope to God they make up and everyone gets over some of the drama! Although I enjoyed last season, I feel like that Bravo should have made some changes to the cast. Teresa needs to get her head checked. I get it. I wouldn't want the world to know that my marriage was failing but I mean, C'mon, she must not care about herself or she would leave Joe. Maybe then she would realize how delusional she really is. And I do believe that Melissa does do some things to get on Tre's nerves but Melissa would never come between her husband and her sisters relationship. In her own right, Melissia has every right to do what she wants and so does Tre but I hate to say it, Tre is so jealous of Melissia. She has to be number one at everything and in everyone's life, but not in her brothers life. I would love to see Jacquline start standing up for herself and let all the dirt out on Tre. She had some great stuff to say at the reunion. I believe Jacq over Tre because we all know how Tre is. And I'm glad that Kathy is back becuase I feel like she shows the softer side of the NJ Housewives. She shows that even though drama is going strong, she can still focus on her kids, her marriage, and herself. She was super successful last season with all of her business ventures. Now Caroline is a whole different story! I don't understand what she is doing. I guess she is at her breaking point with Tre and she just doesn't care anymore. I understand that there is only so much one can take but I mean, if you are done with someone, then you are done. Don't blame them for the downfall of you and your sisters relationship. Fix it. If Dina wants to make up with you because of your apology then she will, no matter what Tre might say or do. The N.J. Housewives are by far my favorite one but I wish that the backstabbing and the melo-drama was toned down just a bit. I would hate to live in their world. I mean, they have so many things to be Thankful for. I would like to have the things they did and I can assure you that fighting with everyone would not be on my list of things to do, but I guess since they have all they want, they have nothing better to do. Oh Well, Keeps that show interesting and leaves me coming back for more!!
It's a sick world to read all the Tre bashing. So many hateful people out there. I think I'll never go outside.
I was orginally going to start my comment with I am not watching this show this year because last year really got on my last nerve but who am I kidding I am addicted to all these shows well except for the Miami one don't know why but cannot get into that one.. So I will DVR it and then fast forward past some of the ladies who grate on my nerves. I do that to the Real Housewives of OC to.. Tamra and Vicky's voices to me sound like nails on a chalkboard.. Don't bite my head off its just the way it is...
the Promo...like before (for those that choose not to see) Melissa is the one shoveling the dirt/crap....Jacqueline plants it in the others heads n make sure its believed...Kathy keeps it watered/feeds the fuel...while Carolines hands are clean , but is there with her approval/disapproval opinions..........Tre see's it all ..... as it happens ... but still stays strong
Unsure if I will give this season a try or not...I stopped watching last year less than half way through because of the degree of malice, backstabbing and hypocrisy each episode. Let's all keep it real; Theresa is far from angelic. She is egotistical and childish but she is also hard working and fiercely loyal to immediate family. She didn't do anything intentional to Caroline or Jacqueline and had nothing to do with Dina's decision to keep her distance from anyone. Conversely, Caroline intentionally inserted herself into Theresa's family matters and while trying to act as though she didn't want to meddle in her family issues chimed in on every family squabble often heating it up whenever she could; SHE intentionally tried to harm a family relationship. And I still don't understand why anyone thinks being a good friend means telling everyone your personal business. A good friend means supporting how others process loss and being respectful rather than trying to shame them at every turn. If it is still so vile and divisive I won't watch long (if at all)...will just patiently wait for RHOBH, RHONYC, and RHOA to come back.
melissa is the copy cat....... she just a poor girl from jersey.. now she's only trying to build her fame..go strip melissa you would go make more $$$$$.That the only thing yu need and want ...am tired of poor little melissa
well who knows whats going to happen this season, thats why those who are going to watch will but this posting is a whole another show...all of us can post what we want thats what its here for, so say what you want , but picking crap with other people posting their thoughts is crap....its our own opinion., n others shouldnt bully them...they need to try n stop trying to be Caroline....lmao !
I can't stomach a Nene spinoff or nasty Caroline!! Jaq should not be on a reality show and concentrate her time on her son!
I hope this season has changed. I refuse to watch another season where they all behave badly. Please get along NJ ladies.
I simply love Teresa and can't wait for the show to come. They all seem to be getting along so I suspect it won't be a season of the ladies blaming Teresa for "phantom acts of cruelty" that no one has actually seen or heard.
@IrishQueen21 Its Called Bad Things By Meiko
I'm so tired of Teresa's BS. Why reward a pathological liar? The more ridiculous she is, the more Bravo seems to want her. I just don't get it.
Very good viewpoint!! Sounds about right, I can see it!!
---And Joe is such a hunka-hunka burning love, isn't he? lol
@tgait304 I really liked your post very well said, thanks!
@jarrodtodd Was it really necessary to call her "Tre" and use it that many times? It's like the needle got stuck on the record. Tre Tre Tre Tre...
I agree! perfect analogy!
Perfect! Though you left out the lightening. A house divided? Or is God mad at them ; )
Yeah, whatever! Poor, innocent, demure, loving, caring Teresa. See, I can talk in Teresa speak, too.
I would like to live in a wold were everything is 'love and light'. So glad you found the rabbit hole.
@jetala Oh I like what you said....
Wow! you ARE trippin?!?!
Strange because it's the opposite for me. I'm disappointed that Teresa and her nasty husband are coming back. Guess there is something for everyone with this group!
Oh, I'm sorry, did Teresa come from old family money or was it from juicy's stellar business schemes? They were ALL poor at one time. Good God!
how can you judge someone in what they decide to do thats her family and how do you know that she is not concentrateing her time on her son you are not in her home to know that
Nene is the highest paid of all the housewives.If she's getting married you know it was all Bravos idea to do a show about it. Why should she give that up, God knows you wouldn't. Who the hell wants to be Kim!
@lily-one I'm sure it was necessary it was necessary for you because sounds like your needle got stuck too.
