Well thanks to the Marcheses, this show is dead.  With the help of the annoying twins, they have managed to nail the coffin closed and make this the worst show in the history of the Bravo franchise.  I really hope the rest of the Bravo fans are smart enough to say no to this garbage.

Amber and Jim are trash.  Why would anyone deliberately try to hurt another person's relationship or feelings?  Amber's blog said it best, she said that she "was very much the type of person that can say some of the meanest things and sling mud".  This says it all.  I don't believe a word out of she and her disgusting husband's mouth!

Here's my take on this idiotic situation.  Melissa started this whole fiasco when she blatantly lied to Nicole about what Amber  told her in confidence.. Amber never said Nicole was responsible for ruining a marriage.  She told Melissa that she had been hearing that gossip/rumor from several other people.   When confronted by Amber, Melissa swears that her version of the conversation is the truth.  It's on camera.  Melissa lied to the twins and wow Jim is out for revenge against every one who "hurt his wife".  The twins behavior at the costume party was reprehensible, and Jim's behavior is pretty much the same.  I see no reason why Jim  should be throwing stones when he lives n such a large glass house..  He's making an ass out of himself, and ultimately, I believe that his antics will backfire and affect his business. This show has degenerated into  an embarrassing representation of Americans.  How sad.

Bobby's reaction to the Marchese's accusations said it all. 

He was so PO & embarrassed that Jim showed those pictures.

The twins have the most annoying and obnoxious voices. I have to turn the TV down when they cackle.

The Twins grate on my nerves when they both talk at the same time.

And Jim maybe a loud mouth but when it comes to Bobby and his intentions with Nicole. 

I believe the Marchese's.

Not a fan of the twins, not a fan of Amber, don't like the way Dina has acted this season, glad Kathy and Jacqueline are off the show, but annoying they are even there as guests.  The Giudices? You break the law you pay the consequences.  However, I have pity for their children that are suffering because of this.


That being said, I'm confused with why the twins are pissed at Amber about the whole Victoria Gotti rumor.  Amber was never friends with V.G.  The rumor was told to her and she NEVER repeated it to anyone except her own husband.  The twin were pissed that it was repeated by Teresa to Dina.  Clearly they could see from all the footage that for once, Amber learned a lesson from the last rumor and his time kept her mouth shut.  She even tried to shut up her own husband and warned him not to open his mouth in Florida about it.  But, she is still being blamed for the rumor getting out?  How does this fall on Amber's shoulders?  Blame her for what she does, yes.  But blaming her for something she didn't do when you have the evidence right in front of you that she didn't do anything is beyond me.


So are we to believe that the twins are pissed that Amber repeated the rumor to her own husband?  If that's the case, why aren't they pissed at Melissa for repeating the rumor about Nicole having an affair with a married man to her husband Joe Gorga?  Melissa gave a heads up to the twins that Amber repeated a rumor to them about Nicole.  But in the footage when Joe and Melissa are at the car dealership to get her Bentley fixed, she tells Joe about the rumor about Nicole that Amber leaked to her.  So clearly, the twins saw this being done.  So how come they weren't pissed at Melissa for repeating the rumor to her husband, but Amber, who shut her mouth completely about the rumor about the twins mother and told nobody but her own husband is condemned for that?


Hypocrisy at it's best. 


And btw Nicole.  You are a FOOL if you truly believe Bobby was cheating on you and that what Amber and Jim are saying about him are lies.  I'm no fan of the Marchese's but I don't doubt or a minute that what they are saying about Bobby cheating on Nicole and that he is using Nicole to be on the show is not 100% true.  You can see it in his personality and his MO.  That guy is a joke.  Watch the video clip on where Jim and Amber call out Bobby about evidence they have against him to prove what they are saying is true.  You can actually see the fear in him when he see's Jim pull out papers and such.  Watch his face before he sees what it is and you can see how frightened he is by what they are going to say or show.


Nicole, get real girl.  This man is a moron! And you are going to look like a fool when the proof eventually comes out about his cheating and such.  Even if it doesn't happen at the reunion, trust me, with him being in the spotlight, whoever he was cheating on while Bobby was with you is going to blow the whistle on him eventually.  Happens every time.  Lies get uncovered.  Not to mention all the stuff that has come out about Bobby already about how he portrayed himself as this big Fireman as a career, etc., and that wasn't true either.  He's a volunteer fireman.  Still an admirable thing to be, don't get me wrong.  BUT, that is not how he portrayed himself or the role in the fire department.

There is something particularly off about this reunion, in an unfunny and disturbing way.  It seems like there is serious, real tension between Teresa and Joe Giudice, and I was nauseated when Teraaaaysa attacked Teresa -- who is clearly extremely distraught and unhappy about being present at the reunion -- and said it is a "tragedy" what she is going through but then immediately started attacking her for her [nonexistent] infraction of [pretend] attacking the twins' mother for having repeated what Victoria Gotti said. 


In a strange way, Teresa comes across as genuinely above the bs, specifically Kathy Wakile's (and I am not talking about Wakile's weird, flaming red-orange lipstick).  It seems like this genuine catastrophe in her life has forced her to rise above the daily stupidity and squabbles.


And I was creeped out at Andy Cohen pushing at Teresa when he should have STFU.


Teresa's dress is beautiful, however.

I am thirlled Dina came back.  I hope she stays.  Prayers to Teresa and her family.  This viewer will miss  you, and I hope you return to the show.

Why are Kathy and Jaqueline even on the show??! The last 2 seasons they made it very clear that they can't stand Teresa, so why even have them on the show when the storyine is about Teresa?  Its an obvious attempt for camera attention on their part and its disgusting.  Either have them on the show with their own story line (boring...) or get rid of them all together.  I'm tired of the "beat up on Teresa" storyline. And this goes for the twins as well!

I can't go through another season with those annoying twins...and Dina..why in the world would Bravo bring her back? What were you thinking!!!!

The twins are so disgusting!!! I feel like Bravo is torturing me by forcing me to watch Jacqueline and Kathy. Why Bravo! They were boring last year and even more so as friends of the HWS. Who are they friends with since they didn't film with a HW except once,

quette432004
quette432004

Bravo, please get rid of the twins. I could stand Amber 1 more season depending on her storyline next season. Do you think the lady where the finale was held would consider being on the show? We need 3 other HWs until Teresa G comes back. Actually I think she should be back for the filming of next season or no more than1 month later. Ohhhh, that would be sensational to see Teresa walk in when everyone's not prepared!!!

Amber is a frustrated actor....she auditioned for the show got the job and she and Jim brought in the rest of the clowns....Bobby and the twins.....Bobby knew the twins from DD ....they were all hired and thrown in the pot...they had no connection to the cast....from there it was just a bunch of nonsense about nothing

Sorry this was the worst season ever. so boring. And whats up with the fake turn on Teresa G.  Do they think the viewers are stupid? So the only reason Teresa G told Dina about the VG conversation is because Amber, who likes to embellish on information,  could had  mentioned it in Florida in a inappropriate way. The way she had slyly mentioned that one of the twins was a home wrecker early in the season. Thats it! it was not rumor it was a means to protect those ugly face chihuahua twins. dina was not to mention it unless it was inappropriately brought up by Amber. The twins clearly have a scripted agenda to drag Teresa G into a new fued. Teresa G did nothing wrong.I know the cast is put in situations to produce drama but when drama is SO FORCED it shows the network thinks the viewers are stupid. Most boring season ever.

Cannot STAND the twins or Amber! Why did they join this show? They are extremely annoying from the second they open their mouths. As far as I am concerned, they brought the show down. Can't you find anyone else? OMG

Even in her interview with Andy,  Theresa never really admits she  did anything wrong except trust other people. Everyone else steered  her wrong, and she shouldn`t have  trusted them?/  Really?? And now she`s worried about her daughters She made a comment about having  all these legal bills, instead of the kids college tuitions..  She play`.s to the camera, and wants everyone to feel bad for her.  She keeps saying she has changed,.... yeah right.  She might say she`s a changed woman, but she`s the only one that believes that lie.

I didn't care for Jim too much until I saw the way he loves his wife and the heartbreak he went through when he thought he might lose her. Jim is a wonderful husband and father and I'm sure that is what Amber sees in him.

Dina please don't turn on Teresa, you've always been a good friend to her. You should never have told those crazy twins what Teresa told you in confidence. You know damn well that Teresa wasn't trying to cause trouble, she was just telling you what was said. Tell those twins to get it straight, they need to go after Victoria Gotti, not Teresa!!  Teresa did not start the rumor, nor was she spreading it around. Dina is supposed to be Teresa's good friend and she turns on her for the twins, so ridiculous!!!!  The twins are just afraid of the Gotti family, so they go after Teresa and kick her when she's down. The twins need to go, picking on Teresa at the worst time in her life and attacking a cancer survivor, who also by the way did nothing wrong in this situation. Fix it Dina, you started it!

I wish those twins were off the show-- what a couple of nasal whiners who really have no life but themselves. At least Jacqueline and Kathy had real life issues and common sense!!

Dina seems like a really weak friend.  She is Teresa's friend of many years.  Teresa tells something to Dina in confidence, and Dina ends up telling the twins... people who only recently joined the circle. But really, how true is Dina's loyalty?  And then she has the audacity to say, whoever is the one who starts the argument will be the one losing a friend?  Even though it was Teresa who started, Dina shouldn't be threatening a supposedly good friend like that.  Its crazy, in the beginning of the season, I definitely was on team Dina.  She just seemed so strong, personality wise.... but now, she just seems weak... not only because of her friendship situation with Teresa, but it seems like she is trying to gain the favor or acceptance of the twins.... almost as if she is intimidated by the thought of losing their approval.
Melissa, nothing new, she just continues to annoy me... Melissa already seemed fake when she threw Amber under the bus in the beginning of the season, but her ability to think logically seems to be non existent, especially after she agrees that Teresa should apologize.... just go back into the background, and continue to talk about how sexy your husband is, or something.  You are only tolerable when you are the wallflower of the show.
I must say, however, that I love how Teresa is standing up for herself.  In the past, she might not have seemed too sharp, but now.... woah! Its like between this and last season, she went to some type of personality boot camp where they taught her how to express and handle herself.  I never thought that the day would come where I would say that Teresa is the most mature house wife on the show.

@RRNYCITY  Unfortunately, I have to agree with your first sentence.  How is it that someone who has watched his wife go through a double mastectomy and cancer treatments be so nasty and evil. One would think that he would be grateful and not so angry.  His excuse of saying the things he has because they hurt his wife is stupid.  Consider the source Jim.  Move on and let it go..

@NameChange Re the tension you allude to: how could it be otherwise?  She is having to face the reality of the man she married, and that that reality, with her collusion re her in denial .....led to this unimaginable MESS.

Hulali if you don't like the way they are bashing Teresa don't look at it. By the way I can't stand those twins, they all need to go. I stopped looking at the show a long time ago but I enjoyed seeing Teresa get her just deserts.

@jtuohey I agree! The twins always talk about how someone need to grow "a set of balls", but would NEVER confront a Gotti, EVER. So, they try and pick on someone who they think is less threatening.

I don't want to see the twins or Jacqueline or Kathy ever again. J and K storyline is Theresa G. bashing. Enough of all 4 of them.

@krizzy123  I  really don't believe Teresa told Dina to start trouble, and I really don't believe Dina was passing it along to start trouble.  And I TOTALLY agree with every word in your last paragraph.  Watching Teresa's conduct this season has been the most interesting part of the show.

quette432004
quette432004

Absolutely not. No more of those two. They are so boring, no storyline except to bash Teresa G. What else to they talk about that's interesting?

@Jillyone @1fergie You are a funny one, Jilly.  :) Harsh as it may sound, I believe Bravo can do better.  The Marcheses are nasty, hateful, awful people.  Teresa and Joe, Melissa and Joe, Dina and Jacqueline can't get along with their families, so how can we expect they can get along with anyone else? Personally, I don't want to watch hateful, mean people anymore. The show  can be interesting without all the nastiness.  Just like your response!  :)

@Nikki2389 @jtuohey  Totally agree with BOTH of you.  But you forgot the elephant in the living room:  the ORIGINAL source of the "rumor" was Rino!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  And it is amusing that Victoria Gotti went to the trouble of taking a lie detector test in this regard.


Personally, I think VG is telling the truth (and I thought that before the lie detector).  I don't think the twins are afraid of Victoria Gotti.  I think they are afraid of the truth!!!!!!!!

@1fergie @Jillyone

  I feel U, classy human!  But I work to chase objective truth,  and wut can I say?  What marks the engine that drives these shows....is pretty clear.  I also think people are moved to what brings others PMS, down deep, so they can witness sometimes horrifying pathology  & people acting out at a safe distance,  they can then dissociate themselves from....and so, feel better about themselves.   If I didn't have some of that, would I watch?  lol

And...think Shakespeare!   This ain no new phenomenon babe....

@1fergie @Jillyone I heah U.  But I mean it, ask any savvy media pundit and look at the overnites and the numbers. The entire reality show genre is driven, to a large extent, by viewers drawn to be a party to train wrecks...salacious interest.  I think it's part of human nature.  And it is what it is.

Jillyone

@1fergie @Jillyone @Hulali I thought I posted what I will now try to repeat, cause it seems to have gone missing.  I could not agree with U more re Ms. Vanderpump!  She's is a world class, shrewd opportunist... and while I sometimes find that kinda scary and icy, U gotta also respect it.  But be objective: regard the reality arrested development herd of humans she is exploiting!  It is THEY who drive the show.  Come on....she knew it going in!  She's the PRODUCER.

Jillyone
Jillyone

@1fergie @Jillyone @Hulali I could not agree more; she is a brilliant, entirely efficient opportunist, but note: the actual group she is exploiting, is consistent with my statement.   I could not bear to endure the toxins of any of those  pitiable arrested development humans even for 30 seconds.  I mean it.  But again, it is their pathology that drives the show.
