Teresa talks chuckies, Fashion Week, Gia's modeling, and Danielle's luncheon.

on May 11, 2010

So, the episode. First, we had Danielle's house tour. To not keep her own house in good condition just to spite her ex-husband is insane. She buys designer clothes but she can’t fix the cracking, leaky roof where her children live? Someone please tell me she's colorblind, because there is no other excuse for that green bathtub. And a bidet? We can only imagine why she needs a good flush for her chuckalina…

When I was at lunch with Jacqueline, I was not trying to say that she is weak. Jacqueline is just so sweet and trusting – it's one of the reasons I love her. And she is completely generous. She was very, very generous with Danielle, and Danielle just used her. I was just looking out for Jacqueline because I care so much about her. And I know she would do the same thing for me.

I loved seeing CJ do his chores. That right there tells you what a great mom Jacqueline is. My girls all have chores too. Gabriella sweeps the kitchen floor. They all make their beds and bring their laundry upstairs. Gotta teach them about hard work from an early age!

How funny was Joe using the chopper saying he didn’t know what Fashion Week was? First of all, I love, love, love my chopper. (And it's not a Slap Chop. I got it from The Pampered Chef. Best chopper ever!) He didn’t know about Fashion Week and Gia had never heard of Elle magazine because we're not obsessed with modeling in our house. Gia does it all for fun, and we support her because she likes it.

I’m happy to take Gia to auditions the same way I’m happy to take her to gymnastics and karate classes. She loves it. As soon as she doesn’t love it anymore, we’ll stop. It’s harmless fun when you’re 8 (and you have to admit, when she gets her catwalk on, she gets it on!)
