So here we are again, it seems like I was writing my last blog for Season 2 just a few weeks ago. Time flies right?  So my big question is did you miss us? I hope so!

OK, let's get down to business. Oh my God, where do I start? It was quite an episode, wouldn't you agree? I'm only going to touch on the Guidice/Gorga  incident for a moment. I wasn't there, so I don't know the logistics of what actually happened first hand. I only know that it was difficult to watch. I can't even imagine what it was like for all those involved as they watched and relived those uncomfortable moments. There's an old saying. "You can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family." In a perfect world our family members would also be our best friends, but sometimes that just isn't the case. I'm willing to bet that every family out there has had their fair share of issues. The bottom line is this: it's the end game that counts. Let's watch the Giudice/Gorga family journey as it unfolds and wish them all a peaceful resolution. Are you with me on this one?

So what did you think about my boys leaving? Did it snow in hell? Did you ever think this would happen? Well it didn't snow in hell, and yes they've left the nest. Guess what? I'm still standing! I have to admit that it took me by surprise. I never thought for a moment that they would leave on the same day, but in hindsight I couldn't have asked for a better scenario. They have each other, and that gives me a tremendous sense of peace. The question is this: is Hoboken ready for these two? Watch and see! 

Lauren is still with Vito, and Ashley is still Ashley. Watch these girls as they navigate their way into the real world. I think many of you will relate to and understand their growing pains. Interesting stuff for sure.
