How much did I love this week's episode? So much great family comedy and so
little Danielle drama! Well, there was a little, so let's just get that out of
Joe was with his beautiful wife the night of his accident, thank you very much.
We went to dinner with Caroline and Albert, Jacqueline and Chris and even Tamra
from Real Housewives of Orange County. When we came back from the city, my car was at Jacqueline's house, so I drove back with her instead of riding back with Joe. Thank goodness I did because his car was really smashed up. That was the
first miracle – that I wasn't in the car. The second was that Joe was completely
fine. He had to crawl out of the window (which I'm pretty sure you couldn't do
successfully without even getting a scratch if you were drunk). He was just
around the corner from our house, closed his eyes for a second, and that was all
it took. Driving tired can actually be just as dangerous as driving drunk, and
it definitely sneaks up on you. We are so thankful that Joe was OK, that no one
else was injured. He doesn't drive late at night anymore. Please, everyone, be
careful and don’t drive when you’re tired, even if you think you're OK!
And yes, it is totally true that he walked to a neighbor's house, and then had a
couple shots to calm his nerves. He just walked away from a huge crash uninjured
and I was supposed to be in the seat next to him. Who wouldn't be shaken up? It
didn't even occur to him that the police would check him for drinking because he
wasn't drunk. And when the police arrived, they didn't even question him because
there was no indication he was impaired at all. Because his car completely
flipped, he had to go to the hospital to be examined, and when they drew his
blood, then they found the scotch from after the accident. He wasn't arrested
(believe me, you'd see his mug shot all over the Internet, wouldn't you?). The
hospital sent the blood test to the police after we left, and a week later we
got the citation in the mail.
Drunk driving is a very serious thing and we don't do it. We always get a
designated driver or call a cab. Our hearts go out to everyone who has been
affected by a drunk driving accident, or just a car accident in general. We are
so, so lucky. Things like this put everything in perspective and make us realize what's really important in life: our family, friends and our faith.
Of course, the entire aftermath with the press and insane accusations like
Danielle's was very stressful. (I didn't know strip clubs were open until 2 a.m.…
am I surprised Danielle knew that? No. Was I surprised she had her birthday
party at the strip club Scores? No. I pray her children weren't there. Nice
example, Danielle. Nice.) So the trip to Italy was perfectly timed.
Don’t get me wrong, traveling with a huge group (and huge camera crew) is not
easy. We had three generations with us! But it made for amazing memories. As you
saw, I’m not bothered at all by the stress of travel. We take our kids
everywhere. Yes, you can take your baby to Italy. I'd much rather be a little
tired and jetlagged with my baby in my arms than to leave her behind with a
babysitter. But that's just me.
There was a little crabbiness on the ship – I'm looking at you Joe and Caroline
– but what you didn't see was how sick they were. Joe was sooo seasick. Even on
the gondola ride he was seasick! He was layed out on the cruise! And poor
Caroline was in the hospital the night before we left with kidney stones that
she took with her to Italy. So painful!
Joe and I were supposed to go to the cooking class with Chris and Jacqueline, so
Caroline and Albert volunteered to watch our girls while we went. But Joe was
too seasick to get out of bed, so we didn't end up going. I stayed in the cabin
taking care of him and Audriana, but I wanted the girls to have fun and go
swimming with Caroline and Albert. Isn't Albert the sweetest? He's going to make
a great grandpa someday! And Caroline too, of course! Joe and I did get our date
later, but he was still pretty sick for most of it.
The girls were also jetlagged and the time difference was killing them. You'll
see them perk up in a few days. How hilarious was it that Milania fell asleep on
My favorite part of last night was seeing Jacqueline back to her old happy self.
She is hilarious and so fun and you never got to see that with all the Danielle
Shopping in Venice was also so fun. We really just window shopped, but what a
great place to do it! The one thing I got, because I like to get a souvenir from
everywhere I go, was the green glass ring. But my father-in-law bought it for
me. That's why I kissed him as soon as I came out of the store. I love love love
my parents and Joe's parents!
One more clarification. A lot of people Twittered me asking about my bag of
"hair extensions." It was hair accessories, not extensions. I don't wear
extensions. It’s really all my real hair. Ask my fabulous hairdresser Daniel
Cerone and he will tell you. Ask anyone who knows me. But I did have an entire
duffel bag of just hair bows and headbands for the girls because I just love
them to wear stuff in their hair!
Thank you all for coming to my book signings and embracing Skinny Italian!
Keep sending me pictures of your gorgeous meals and even more gorgeous kids!

Wait until you see my hometown and family reunion next week!
This weeks show in Italy proved that the show would be sooo boring without Danielle in it, thank God for Danielle I love you. Teresa I see right through you, you call Danielle messy, but you are the worst of all the ladies. And the story that you all gave about Joe getting drunk after the accident, it was better left unsaid...and that baby act of yours is getting alittle old and aggravating don't you think.
why do you all care how she spends her money? , it's NONE of anyone's business. what so just because she MAY be having money issues you don't like her? , i don't get it screw you all. Teresa is freaking amazing, she's beautiful & hilarious. you like a person for who they are not what they have & that's why she will ALWAYS be one of my favs (:
Read Tereas Bio. on Bravo. You will be amazed at the wonderful education Teresa has had the good fortune to have received. I too, wondered about the speech pattern which was explained in her recent trip to Italy. She did not began speaking English until forced to do so on entering school.
Hey, Teresa, always have watched all the Bravo tv show's, heard the news today, pay your bills lazy than showing the world how rich you are, you are just a big show off................crazy one out of all, than Danielle.
Use some common sense Theresa. It is only obvious that Joe is stressed about your financial situation. I mean come on, custom made dresses for all FOUR of your daughters? While in Italy "Where is Chanel?" Searching like a maniac just salivating at the thought of another shopping spree meanwhile your life at home is unraveling. The last few episodes have been painful to watch, Joe is not the same. Get a clue!
You weren't paying real close attention were you LisaZ - Theresa does not speak fluent Italian! Joe was the only one besides the elderly parents who could. And yes, Theresa is as dumb as a rock.
teresa, someone on the show needs to inform danielle that the show is not about her and it is not aired because of her nor that without her there would be no show. i was reading a OK maganize and she was saying some crap about that the show is nothing without her. Is she losing her mind, really. The show would be better without her dramaness, that she the one who starts all of it. Is she freakin kidding me. I wish BRAVO would release her from her contract cause i sure as hell do not watch the show cause of her. Shes freakin crazy!!! Why is she on the show please someone tell me. Its repulsing to me she is so losing it. The show would be better without her and bringing back Dina. Is there anyway you can let them know this. Caroline and all you guys are so much classy her than that Danielle. One I feel for the most are her daughters. they are just so sweet but it is ashame that they have to deal with all the crap Danielle subjects them too. Noone doubts she does not love them but she sure as hell not making life better for them with her craziness. Anyway, I wish you girls, well besides danielle the best of luck and maybe next season she wont be there. And if bravo plans to give her a spinoff trust me i will help boycott it, BRAVO dont make that mistake. She is not so worth it. Yes Danielle talking about you.
A pisted off reader from OK magizine
I'd like to do more than "Pinch" him, but he IS spoken for! I agree with you, he is a GEM and I'd certainly watch a show of JOE. He is my absolute fav!!!!
ITA! All her fans on her talk about how shes such a great mother. Really? She brought both sets of grandparents on the trip as babysitters. Never saw her or her husband play around with the kids not once the whole trip! You think they same thing dosent go on when they are home? She isnt the loving mommy she claims to be. OPEN YOUR EYES!
@RMR,,im a with you regarding joe having a show, or at least, more of a presence!! that guy is great!
Teresa making a huge group happy is very very hard, so good to keep up your energy and positive attitude. What I can't believe is you had such a grownup dinner for your daughter's birthday, you should know that 4 year olds do not enjoy sit down dinners. Also you worry about their outfits but don't bring toys for them or activities for them to do during boring "adult" activities.
Teresa, Joe is obviously agitated with your out-of-control spending. Your baby did not need such an elaborate christening party. You really should take the other viewers advice, and stop spending money on un-neccessary things. I really haven't had a good feel for you since you said, "I would never stay in a used house, eww." Since you're blaming bravo, and almost in financial ruins, I bet that you wont have no problem staying in one now.
Honestly, Danielle creates ALL the drama on the show and sadly thats what most viewers want to see. I dont see her going away anytime soon It would be too peaceful without her
Who started all this your little Italian group finding a book, thats when the drama started, what about the drama with Ashley then we have Teresa and her daughters, and Caroline and her son wanting to own a strip join, would she like her daughter doing that. Also feeding the dog from the table very nice. Three women with drama of their own.
The editor of this show must left out all the dirt you and your family claim Danielle has done to you. My husband and I watch this show faithfully. To be honest... you and your family look redicilous and are acting like a bunch of OLD NAGGING WOMEN! You all say you hate Danielle and you want her out of your lives. However, one of you always turn around and ask for a one on one meeting. To only say "stay out of our lives". Next, you dog her out and when she responds to your threats. You take it to another level and want to fight. I'm beginning to think you are under alot of stress. Maybe your verbally abused at home.... All I know your coming across as being crazy. I'm hoping all this screaming your doing, all this hatred towards Danielle has to be for ratings!
First of all Teresa.....you are a very beautiful woman with lovely girls and what looks like a good husband. I could care less about your finances and am glad that you live the good life. I also am Italian and very proud. I love my family and would never let anyone hurt them.
The thing that just throws me for a loop is your foul mouth. Not only in front of your family and friends but your babies. It really takes that beauty that you have and knocks it down. I really do not believe that all the F---s that come out of that georgeous mouth are necessary even though it is a drama series. You can't be proud of yourself when you spew that venom. You totally lack class when you act out. I don't think you want to be viewed this way and I can only hope that you can somehow get your temper calmed down. I do have people in my family that go from 0-10 temper wise and I really think that they are not proud of themselves but hopefully if they were being televised would try to think twice before exploding. You never want to stoop to a lower level than you should. GOOD LUCK and please clean it up so I may hold you in higher esteem.
