What will get you killed in Housewife land? Sending flowers.

Christine is so beautiful, and I loved seeing the difference between her being a little girl at home with mom and no makeup, to the grown up feline goddess all made up at Rebecca Minkoff. A mom with a daughter like that HAS to be proud. Later on in the episode Danielle said that if she'd had the opportunities her kids have maybe her life would have gone differently, and that was the most real and unaffected I've ever seen her. I hope the two of them balance out the Mama Rose thing that's happening now, because there's potential for Danielle to rise far, far above the stuff she went through to help her daughters spread their wings and fly.

Gia! Shopping! Milania! Throwing! Gabriella! Running! It's a brave woman who takes an excited trio of girls shopping, nine months pregnant so she can't run after them, without a stun gun or at least a helper. It's like shopping with François, Johan, Simon and Ginger all at the same time. Oy; I felt for her.

What does an energist do? Listen? Burn sage? Cleanse the house? Whatever works, as long as she’s not being a ho-bag... .

Loved watching Gia and the little girls put on a show for Caroline and the family. Didn't love the crying in the car. Going to play devil's advocate here for a second; I get that he was teasing. That happens in Brooklyn too, Australians and Italians aren't that different in that regard. BUT, I think that maybe because tensions were so high, Joe wanted to tease Gia to relax her, and it didn't work. She freaked out. Sometimes 8 year olds just can't process that much. Didn't look to me like anyone had bad intentions, and it was obvious at the end of the fashion show that both Mom and Dad were bursting with pride.

Lastly, I felt for Christine when she got sick. It has to be hard to walk in your first fashion show, have it be filmed for a reality show, not eat, then stand so still your knees lock up and you get dizzy. Ouch. Regardless, she looked beautiful.

'Til next week! Wait, I really just need to say "ho-bag" one more time. OK, now I’m done.
