"Puffy Chuck"
So if this is the only scene at Teresa's shower luncheon I'm going to die. The footage from that afternoon was so priceless! Teresa was going on and on about how Joe won't leave her alone (as usual) and her girly flower is all puffy. Baby Nicholas has had just about enough of all the girl talk and not only did he cry, but he actually puked as we were really getting into it. IT WAS SO FUNNY! "Chucky" is short for "Chuckelina" which is our family name for the "Va-JayJay". Hence the phrase "puffy chuck." Come on, all you girls out there know that every once in a while you were going at it a little too much and you get a little puffy. It happens to the best of us. I'm hoping that "chucky" will be the new "bubbies" for season two. By the time we are done with this show the whole world will be talking like us!

"Celebratory Luncheon"
I don't think I need to comment much on Danielle's behavior regarding Christine's modeling. I think we are all thinking the same thing. All I can say is GOD please let that kid be a huge success. I truly hope that Christine is the next Christie Brinkley. She is a gorgeous young lady. I am not even going to comment much on the luncheon that was for Christine while she was in school ... it's all just too obvious.

What I will say is that I have NO CLUE why there were those two empty seats sitting there for me and Jacqueline. I wish I could post the email I sent her the night she called me. I was VERY clear about not coming to the luncheon and WHY. I DID have a Ladybug meeting to attend that afternoon but there were other reasons why I felt uncomfortable being there. This was when things started to turn ... you will see it all play out soon but it was about this time that I saw that maybe Danielle had me a bit fooled when it comes to her changing her ways. You'll just have to "Watch what happens," as we love to say here at Bravo.

On a final and positive note, in some of the scenes you will see me wearing a red extension in my hair. This is a huge nation wide fundraiser for Project Ladybug. Please visit www.projectladybug.org or www.luckylocks.org to have your salon sign on to the campaign or to find a participating salon in your area. $10 a strand adds up! Can't wait to see you all sporting your red locks for Ladybug! Follow me on twitter for updates too @dinamanzo
