Hello again! So what did you think of Thanksgiving in June? I think the general perception among viewers is that things are happening in real time, not true! We actually filmed this in November, just thought I'd give a little insight into our filming process.

Let's talk about Vito and his family. They are wonderful people who have welcomed Lauren into their family and embraced her as one of their own. As a mother I couldn't ask for more. It means the world to me to know that Lauren is loved not only by Vito, but his entire family as well. Jackpot! I'm going to let you in on a little secret, you need to go visit the Scalia family deli, The Best of Little Italy, in Monroe, NY. You won't be disappointed! If you're not from the area, check it out on the web.

I was happy to see Ashley stepping it up at home. Power on, Ashley, power on! You have it in you, kid, just let it out.

"Friendsgiving" at Teresa's was a way for us to support Teresa and Joe during a difficult time. I was happy to see the Gorgas having a conversation that suggested moving forward towards resolving the feud. I've said it many times, every family fights, we're only human, but at the end of the day we need to forgive and move on.

That's all for now, folks. As always, thank you for watching! See you next week!

xoxo
