Ever hear the myth that New Yorkers pretend they don’t know where New Jersey is? Well, this Brooklynite does – and last night Simon and I were at the Brownstone to celebrate the beginning of the season with most of the cast. We met so many Housewives fans that I lost count. We never even made it to the step and repeat, although we DID sample the food, which was great.
So, what do we think so far? I was glad that Jacqueline shared her home video of Nicholas’ birth, but have to ask…were the Sirens singing that day? ;-) Either way the footage looked great.
Next, it’s over to tomato time at the Giudice’s. I loved this scene – random trivia about our family is that we make Bolognese sauce once a month and freeze it – a big production the boys call "making dead cow sauce." Anyway, I can totally imagine Teresa screaming to herself, the baby is coming in two weeks, I HAVE TO MAKE THE TOMATOES!! No comment on the feminine hygiene discussion. Except to snicker. Just a little. Good on them – looked like a fun day.
Next, Danielle takes her daughters to Posche for after-school shopping. Fairly innocuous scene, until later, but let’s continue on the school front back to Teresa’s house. Cute girls, fabulous girls, running around with curls flying – I love that they packed their lunches. I kind of wanted to call all the organic snack companies Simon and I love for the boys and say, PLEASE send them some organic fruit squeezers, veggie straws and cheddar bunnies for the kiddos…not so much sugar! Though who am I to judge, I let my boys eat chocolate on TV season 1. Anyway…
Danielle confesses to the Father and advice is given – I appreciated the scene but felt like it was a little stilted from the priest’s end; how could anyone who gets to the point of being filmed for RHONJ not know at least part of the back story?
